GO TO COLLECTOR'S OFFICE TODAY jointly with China, and China has Byrnes disclosed today'. Byrnes said the United States would send a message to Moscow on lhe Manchurian situation. Preliminary signs indicated the American position svould be in support of the Chinese government. Manchuria is one of lhe major trouble spots in Russia-American relations. Earlier at a news conference, Byrnes said Gen. Douglas Mac-Arthur's authority as supreme i commander at Tokyo extends lo i the Manchurian area. I Information from lhe Chinese foreign office aboul lhe Soviel-propo- .sal for operation of Manchuria in- duslry was made public by Byrnes ; simply bv releasing a partial text of the Chinese note.

Boren Opposed Giving S. P. A. Appropriations Washington, March 5 —(/P)— Rep, Boren (D-Okla) said today he is opposed to giving the Southwestern Power Administralion "one nickel for any purpose.'.' He declared in an interview Ihere is no legal justification for appropriations being asked by the SPA. Officials of the SPA, now operating under the Interior Department, have appeared before a House Appropriations subcommittee on interior appropriations seeking approval of Budget Bureau recommendations for $23,000,000 for the next fiscal year. The money would be used for eleclric powQr lines from Ihe Denison dam and reservoir project on the Oklahoma-Texas line and from other hydro-electric projects which have been built or are authorized. Executives of several southern and southwestern private power companies opposed the SPA program at hearings last week. Other private power officials expect to appear before the committee late lo- day or tomorrow. Boren contended there is no authority in the law to justify such an appropriation. It is an attempt "of colleetiyisls lo gel power by usurpation thai Ihey couldn't get by direct request of Congress," he declared. "We have loo many government authorities now," Boren told a reporter. "It is lime for Ihe people lo have a little authority themselves without, government ownership or dictation over these innumerable matters that properly belong lo privale enterprise." o Basketball Scores By The Associated Press EAST Georgetown 53; American University 52.

O'BRIEN, M.tD, Written for NEA Service Every fracture of n major bone should be splinted before the patient Is moved. Fractures of small bones may not require this special precaution, bnl if tin- spine or a bone in the legor arm is injured, a splint should be applied Skin wounds should be covered 'with a clean cloth or sterile dress- ling, but no skin antiseptic should 'be used because of the possibility of further dnmnge to the I issues'. Kxcept for the control of hemorrhage, emergency treatment, seldom requires haste. Keep (he victim covered and send for help. Injured patients should always be carried on a stretcher in an ambulance if possible; never should they be crowded into the back seal of an automobile. In lifling injured persons, avoid the common error of carrying them by holding on to thc-ir arms and legs, with (he thighs flexed on (he abdomen, as this may cause laceration of important blood vessels and nerves PAD SPLINTS In suspected injury to the spine extra care is necessary u> avoid further damage to the spinal cord. A blanket should be slipped under the body if the patient is lying face down and each one of the lour corners should be grasped bv a strong adult so the patient can be lifted without bending the back. If a stretcher is used, a small roll of padding can be placed avoid backward bowing of the spine. Fractures of the forearms or wrist may be splinted by using towel-padded pieces of wood on each side. Or, a bunch of folded newspapers can be wrapped around the inlured extremity before splinting. The splinted member should • be held up by a sling tied around the neck. In fractures of the arm. a pad may be placed between the arm and the body and the arm bandaged against the body. In injuries of the collarbone, a figure- of-eight bandage may be placed around the body and shoulders. For -fractures of. the femur, a padded board can be placed alongside the body extending from the arm pil to the foot. This can be held in place by strips of cloth which are tied around the chest, waist, thigh, knees, and ankles. Or padded boards may be placed on both sides of the thigh and held together with ties. In the case of fracture of the ankle, a pillow can be folded around the injured extremity and tied with bandages. AVOID MANIPULATION First-aiders should not al- Pagc Three ,.-?

This means thai every member of the Department of Stale Police will be on duly lo guide and control weekend ' and" holiday traffic during peak hours, and will be subject lo call at any lime during (he clay or night. Director Porter stated that the rcsulls of the Safely Program in February indicated that traffic ac- cidenls could be reduced by hard work on Ihe part 61 Ihe members of the State Police and by the sincere cooperation of Ihe driving public, and that since more accidents occur over the weekends lhan al an-y olher lime he was requiring his men to remain on duty to concentrate on the apprehension of careless and reckless drivers and those people who insist' on driving Iheir cars in a manner that indicates a disregard for* the rights of other users of the highways. During the month of March the State Police will continue vehicle checks, of the same type as those conducted in February, on the highways to climate faulty vehicles. However instead of a few road crews doing Ihis, the work will be expanded by every member of Ihu Department checking vehicles al principal 'highway iii- terseclions. Director Porter has ordered his men to call drivers' attention to the slate speed limit and lo enforce obcyance of all traffic signs and markers. During these checks drivers will be also be instructed by tlic Officers in the making of proper hand signals and the fact lhal the more execution of a hand signal does not give a driver the right-of-way. The Stale Police checked 31,19!) vehicles in February. In sufficient brakes were found "on 2,3'j of Ihe curs, and bad hghls were found on (i,4!Jl ol them. Tnree thousand live- hundred fifty-nine warnings were issued by the members of Ihe De- parlmem for minor violations oi the traffic laws. Two-hundred and sixty-three motorists in. distress on the highways were assisted by the State Police. The services rendered motorists ranged from assisting those whoso cars had run out of gas on Ihe highway lo helping llioso whose cars had been urowncd oui in n-javv rains and loaning tools and help to those who had lire trouble. "It is our policy and desire to be of every assistance to the moloriiiL' public and our help is given freely when il is needed. Every Officer in Ihis Department is always anxious and willing to help molorists in distress," stated Chief Porter. Mr. Porter further stated that it was his belief hat Arkansas car owners were making every al- tompl lo put their cars in good mechanical condition and that he knew lhal Ihe Slate Highway Department was doing its best lo keep the highways in as good condition as possible, bill lhal until such lime as both the cars and the roads are brought to a normal condition the Stale Police will have to act as a stop-gap to hold the accident toll down. "In fact," staled the Director, "When cars and roads are not in the best of condition the traffic Officers' work is Ihe only thing' thai can keep Ihe accident toil from soaring oul of sighl. In l!)-l;i 58 per ccnl of the traffic deaths were caused directly by the carelessness of the drivers involved. 1 think Ihis illustrates my point." The traffic fatalities in January of this year showed an increase o'l 105 per cent over January of 19-15. The increase in February'this year • over Ihe same month last year was only 58 per cent. According to Director Porter the experience in January gave every reason i'or expecting a hundred percent increase in fatalities in February. Porter stated, "We believe that Ihe efforts of the Department and the cooperation of the driving public had a great effect on holding down the expected increase of traffic fatal- ilies in Arkansas and we are going to C9nlinue our fight to decrease traffic accidents and protecl the people of Arkansas if it takes every member of this Department twenty- four hours a day to do it." up her offspring and said, "I'll join you for a cup of coffee as soon as I wash the infant's face and hands " Uhen she returned. Ann had lit a cigarette, and was sipping reflectively at a cup of coffee. "Have a .smoke with your coffee, Connie— you have time," she urged her "This is Sunday, and I ought to b" able to help you a little. "Where's Dad?" • "Playing golf. He started off at the crack of dawn, 1 guess. I found a note pinned to my door when I Sol up. I thoughl he'd eloped or something."

One of the reasons I've always liked blond men best. He's not a bit good-looking—very beaky nose, thin and sort of long—his nose. I mean—and with a sort, of lean and hungry look aboul him. He has a nice voice—mellow and very low." "Is he married?" Connie'inquir- ed. Ann looked slarlled. "I don'l know," she confessed. "I don'l think he could be—" "H mighl be just as well if you found out," Connie commented. She briskly began to clear the lable, and Ann got up lo help her. Connie was such a culc little girl. Ann thoughl. She frequently said that Connie had had sense enough to stop growing at a reasonable size. She wished lhal she had stopped shooting up some four inches short of her presenl height. She had never minded being tall, because it didn't mailer wilh Jock's 6 fool 3 alongside her. There always had been Jock, and now Ihere never would be again. "Connie," Ann said soberly, "do you thing I'll ever get over it?" "Of course you will!" Connie said. "Such nonsense! There are millions of other men, and after all, Jock is only one man who happens to be loo darned handsome, wilh a nice plausible manner and a heluva lot of charm. I'll admit all that— but he's behaved rollenly lo you, Ann." "I don'l know," Ann said slowly. 'He never broke any promises— he never made any. I jusl took too much for granted, I suppose. It's just—well, my father doesn't happen to be an eminent and successful lawyer who can use a nice bright young man wilh lots of brains but nu ux peri once in his firm." Blinded by sudden tears, she ran stumbling from the room, up the stairs lo her bedroom, and flung herself on Ihe bed. L«-l WIUI JJdJUIILdl [JI1UI-. J ] U1IU. ....u.vv. ijii^, m m_. Connie.

"Sorry to be dull, darling—but • : jusl who is your favorite author at 'the moment'.'" • "Oh, didn't you know? Colin Drake. He seemed sort of interested in me. Asked if he could write to me.

It had seemed quiel pleasi- ble lasl night, but sort of incredible by daylight. But it seemed lhal he had meant it. Every day, when she opened the mail al Ihe office, Ihere was a fat lelter from Colin. He wrote charming letters, and Ann felt somehow guilty thai they were wasted on a public of one. She wrote him three limes a week, and although jusl at first her letters were a lillle slilled from awe, as she gradually began lo feel lhal she knew him rather beller lhan anyone else in Ihe world, her let ters became a failhful expression of Ann herself. Ann showed Connie Ihe lelter in which Colin told her of the crackup of his marriage, some years before, in which he commented lhal perhaps il was some inadequacy of his own, some glaring faull lhal he was loo conceited lo see, thai made a failure of his more intimate re- lalionships. Ann didn't believe lhal of course. Perhaps she wasn't meant to. Quickly she placed the blame on the woman involved. Foi very often, she had noticed, the most intelligent men showed the least brains in picking their women. Probably, she thoughl wryly, Ihal's why he liked me. She said as much lo Connie. Connie's comment was brief. "The man's clever," she said. (To Be Continued) Thoughts Have not I commanded Ihee?
