Mardi 7, 1946* Manages to Keep It's Economic and Financial Stability By DEWITT MACKENZIE AP World Traveler Bern, March 7 — This snug jitt'.c Switzerland, whose territory for the most part stands on edge and towers into the clouds in the form Of the Alps, is one of the few countries of Europe having economic and financial stability in these hard postwar days. That's an amazing circumstance, because Switzerland is tho center of .the continental chaos produced! by the Hitlerian conflict. Of course, i this givesi rise to- the remark that j the cpithtry's relative, prosperity is i the *^*ard of neutrality, but while ! — ~ there's some truth in that observa-! „««, n»r, tion it doesn't afford a full explann-' ost u Hope Star Slur of Hope 1897; Prott 1927, Consolidated January 18, 1929 Published every weekday nfternoon by Star Publishing Co., Inc. (C. E. Palmer and Alex. H. Woshburn) ct the Star building 212-214 South Walnut Street, Hope, Ark. C. E. PALMER President ALEX. H. WASHBURN Editor and Publisher tlpn. The war was a long way from j being\a" period of sunshine and; flowers for the Swiss, and mainten-, ance of economic stability in the midst, of the present disorganization is like juggling on a tightrope. Neutrality has helped, but think we find the roots -of success running deeper than that. Thrift, honesty a high moral code and national unity are what have kept the Swiss on their feet. A good illustratioli of this is seen in the fact that there has been virtually no black market. The Swiss don't hold with'making profit out of the distress v of . their, fellows. They believe rather in joint effort and mutual Assistance, as witness the cooperation < between capital and labor, and the active participation of the whole country in making the 'rationing system work. •So things are looking bright in this land where there are few rich and few really poor, but /where ybdeling on; a mountain peak Act of March 3, 1S97. class matter at the Arkansas, under the (AP)—Means Associated Press, (NEA)—Means Newspaper Enterprise Association.

Nature took most of Ihe farmlands to build her mountains. but still the natives yodel and work all the available ground. Uairving is the main agricultural pursuit. Wine is a valuable product. Insurance business of all kinds is highly developed. So is banking, for Switzerland has money, tie in;. 1 , thus blessed, she is grantfng credits abroad despite the fact that some exports are pessimist about the political and e.eonoinic situations in surrounding countries. The Swiss bankers favor this because ii (gives them a chance to put their i cash to work. However, the biggest single asset rests in those Alps. Switzerland long has been the winter playground of, Europe, and it lias equal attractions for summer vaca- tionists. Before the win- tourists gladly contributed §100.000.000 annually to the country's coffers, and the Swiss now are making biv' plans not only to reclaim uul lo increase this lucrative business. Germans spent the most money! here, and now that their trade is i lost the Swiss are looking to the; western hemisphere for visitors. A • .lot of Uncle Sam's soldiers in this, part of the world have had an ;>p- 'portunity to visit Switzerland : About 200.000 already have had a j look at some of the globe's most < magnificent scenery. and more; than a few have engaged in winter i icumslancc, his lot politically was cast with former Oov.

An indication of the need for extensive revamping of the Army's <:a;'te system is found in a War Department statement that 7!>,5!!8 applications have come from temporary officers for appointment to the Regular Army in any one of the first tour officer grades, while the Ann;,' is hard put to meet enlistment quotas which were optimistically expected to obviate need for further extension of the draft. The officer volunteer total is sub- ii-cl to upward revision, for the .March 1 deadline found the depart- short i ment so swamped it has not yet processed all the applications received. Under Public Law 281. enacted December 2H. the president is authorized to bring, the commissioned i strength of the Regular Army, j which now stands at 1(3,000 officers, I tip to 25.000 within eight months. iThus.

I It blamed the fighting on "tech-j nical difficulties," 'connected with j the transfer of the port to French i control. This account said the difficulties arose at the last minute, and it was decided to delay the transfer until today. Meanwhile, an investigation was under way. Under the Sino-French agreement. China promised to pull her occupation forces out of Haiphong and the. rest of northern French Indo-China by March 3). They entered Indo-China originally to accept the surrender of Japanese troops. The treaty also provides that Chinese goods will be exempt from French customs at Haiphong and China flnd France will operate the railway which links the port with Kunming in southwestern China. There has been considerable friction between the French and Chinese over the tatter's occupation of northern Indo-China, The agreement was announced simulatneously with the signing of a new treaty by which France renounced her extraterritorial rights in China. We, the Women brides; women arms, you By RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer Look, you foreign war If you waiit American to welcome you with open be careful about the way word your "first impressions."" Consider the case of the British bride recently photograhped and interviewed by a New York newspaper. She made a couple of mistakes. Of American women's hats the move honest than tactful Brl itisher exclaimed: "They said our orientation course .abroad | that American women are the | smartest in the world. Then how | can they wear those things'. 1 " ! That kind of spoken reaction is i dynamite. American women have i to put up with cracks like that about their headgears from their : men. But, ladies of foreign lands, they aren't going to take such ; sniping from you. The same bride made another error in diplomacy. Said she when shown a model kitchen: "I think it's wonderful, but will I not become terribly la/.y with dishwashers and things to work for me?" That Is the kind of talk American women don't care about having their men hear. After all, it's going to be hard enough for Mrs. America to sell her man on the idea of buying her all the latest household gadgets,' without having anyone put in his mind the idea that such helps will make his little woman lazy, NO TROJAN-HORSES, PLEASE Plenty of men who wouldn't dream of having anything but the best labor-saving equipment on their farms or in their offices! and shops are hard to sell on the | idea that tho dishwashing for a i family of six ought to be done electrically. American women campaigning hard to get their kitchens as labor-saving as possible don't care for this Trojan- Horse business. So foregin brides had better be cautious about their comments on American women and their ways. Besides, in not lime at all they, too, will be wearing silly hats and , longing for electric dishwashers. ! n I And then their husbands may reship j m ind thorn of how they felt about such things svhcn they first landed in America. o The richest woman in the United States and probably inlhe world is Hetty Sylvia Howland Green Wilks, daughter of Holly Green, Wall street tycoon of the nineties. Mrs. Wilks has more money than Doris Uukc and Barbara Hulton combined.

March 7 — End of February found the net receipts of tho State Highway Fund for the current, bond year, which ends this month., $45.000 more than the net credited to the fund in 1941-42, when revenues were the largest on rcc ord. ••'.< While-'the net, $14,665,000, \vsty running ahead of the record year's $14,620,000 the gross receipts, $16,390,000, were somewhat behind Ihe 1941-42 gross, $16.500,000; and il is quite generally agreed that the gto.v.s would have gone far ahead of the 1941-42 total if the General Motors strike had not kept thousands of new cars off Arkansas highways. The accumulated net highway revenues are $2,563,000 more than they were a year ago. .; February gross collections, $2,157,860 were greatly in excess of last year's Feoruary total, $1,479,000, and also ahead of February 1941-42, but his could be attributed in part to collection of more automobile license fees than in the prior years. Gasoline lax collections last month were $1,162,286. Oamn Robinson's New PRO Li. Col. Leo Murphy, formerly of Junction City, Ark., is the new public relations officer for Camp Robinson.

The Doctor Says: By William A, O'Brien, M.D. Written for NEA Service Cancer of the larynx i voice box 1 usually develop:! in men between 4(1 and 70 years old. It might also develop in women. Growth is ol- ten preceded by thickening of the vocal cords. Cancer rareiy develops in a normal larynx. Contrary to popular belief, benign tumors of the larynx seldom turn Into cancer. This is of in- Iciest to the large; numbers of patients who have papillomas in the larynx. As benign growths are much more common than cancers, patients should not fear ihront examination because of the idea that all growths in the larynx are cancerous. The earliest symptoms of cancer of the larynx is change in the voice. This is a huskines.s or hoarseness which starts as soon as the growth develops. Other symptoms are easy fatigue of the voice, inability to clear the throat of phlegm, n feeling of rawness dryness, or iddilation as if somclhiiii' is stuck in Ihe throat. The strong, rough, painless voice of vocal cord involvement is characteristic of the diseasce. Patients in the early stages do not feel sick, and therefore often delay seeking medical advice. WARNING SIGNS Unfortunately in Riving the early signs of cancer in any part of the body it is necessary to list "warning" signs. All of these warning signs can be caused by conditions wmch are not cancer. It is only by being examined when these warning signs appears that cancer can be found in the early stage. There are many things which cause throat irritation but there ore only a few conditions which cause permanent change in the voice in older patients. When real- voice changes occur, cancer should be suspected. The physician by examining the throat with a simple laryngeal mirror is able to see larynx growths and make the diagnosis. . , Treatment of cancer of the larynx is usually surgical. The growth must be removed if permanent cure is to be obtained. Cure is practically certain in growths which have not extended beyond the confines of the laryngeal box. Use of X-ray and 'radium is limited to those patients in whom its use is recommended by the attending physician. There have been inmportant advances ir the treatment of cancer of the Jaryn\ recently, notably in bcltei preparation of the 'patient foi operation. CATCH IN TIME Cancer of the larynx has a favorable outcome when taken in time. When patients some early, the operation can be more limited in nature. Individuals in middle and laic life with voice difficulty extending over a period of two or three weeks, shoulo consider Ihe possibility of cancer of the larynx. Following the removal of the larynx, the patient •breaths through an opening ii: the neck and can often be taught to speak distinctly and readily b> other means.

A good mother must love ' her children, but she must love them wiselv and not too well. Mother human hands. Every mother who lets her little bobby-sock, daughter run around the streets at night with and her teen-age boy career around the country in the family automobile and frequent bars, is responsible for the follies and crimes they rules the world, because every man and. woman alive are what their mothers made them.

Many mothers pride themselves mother and boast upon being all that they have- no interest in the world except their children. That is not the kind of mother that children need or want. They want a mother who will laugh with them and play with them, who keeps herself looking young and pretty and of whom they can be proud, yet who holds a strong hand over them and makes them respect her. II is a hard job to bo a good mother, but Grandma's recipe for rearing children—feed . 'em and wash 'em, kiss them when they are good and spank them when they are bad—has never been improved up- by Hazel Heide.rgptt The Story: Ann Tucker turns to u sympathetic stranger for comfort at a party following Jock's marriage to another girl. She is flabbergasted when she finds out he is Colin Drake, her favorite author. They become friends and when Ann loses her drafting job, Colin proposes that Ann build a new home for him, as he intends to turn his huge, old family mansion into a Children's Home. Jr H' '.I IV Ann was terrified by Colin's .lousekeeper, Mrs. Christinas. She was a small, grim, indomitable old iady, whose faded blue eyes regarded the world with disgust and suspicion 'through 'steel-rimmed' spectacles. Ann felt distinctly in i wo ot ner. "J feel rather like a trcpasscr who's shortly to be pros- ecuieci to tne iuiicst extent pi the :;uv," she confided to Colin, in one jt Mrs. Christmas' absences from ihe room during lunch. "She believes everyone guilty until proven innocent," Colin grinned. "She's a wonderful cook." Ann said, in some appreciation. The re-mark was fortunately timed. Mrs. Christmas was bringing in dessert, a miracle of sweetness and light in the form of an apricot souffle. "I'm glad to see young j;irls eat," Mrs. Christmas answered shortly, .md left the room. "And you can thank your healthy | appetite for having her on youi ! .•iide from now on," Colin informed i Ann. ! After lunch Colin took her to the! iile he had picked for the new' louse. There was a cleared space, | Jt the lop of the cliff, ringed about j jy trees. The bay curved in, just | .here, and on either hand great | (roves of evergreens swepl clown lo tho water. Ann 1 sal down on the grass, j w a nil and dry in the sun, and took 4 cigarette thoughtfully from the j paper pack in her pocket. She leaned over a little, while Colin | aeld. his lighter for her, and said, i "I'm going to have lo get busy, to | lave the house far enough along before the rainy season starts. We should at least have it plastered by .hen, or there'll be trouble. Is there a contractor in Port Drake. Colin?" "Charlie Hanson builds things— he's competent enough, but you'll have to watch him—I've heard that '.ic's likely to get independent ideas." They discussed ways and means 'or a while, and Ann expressed a haunting worry that Colin was taking an awful chance on her comparative inexperience. Colin stretched laxily on his back, squhitiny against tne sun. He gripped his hands in the grass about his bead. It was tough and resilient and gave him a good hold. "It ilnesn't matter. Ann. You know my i book, 'Bruce- of Scotland".'" j "Of course." Ann said. ! "Well—the movies bought that for $50.000—apparently under the impression i which 1 irusi is mis-; takem thai it's fit-lion. As thai was in the nature of money found in the street, 1 can squander it with n clear conscience." "In that ease—" Ann said. "Listen, Colin—I'd bettor get back t;> the house and start my mathematical calculations. There are quantities of things I have lo figure on before I can start consulting work- 1 men. 1 wonder if I can talk Had into leiting me have the ear tu drive' back and forth." Colin got to his feet, and g;\vr Ann a hand up. "Well. I was wondering. Ann—wouldn't it be bell'.-r ' if you staved, here" I'll want In buy all the building matorial.- throngh dealers here--and local; workmen, of course—and it seems thai it wou'd be I -ss eomplicale-d all; around if vim were living it 1 , town That reminds me. 1 haven't said anything' about paying yon. What is Ihe usual arrangement—a percent • j age'.' We'll work that out. And u 1 coi'"t;o yru'll live at my house while you're wur'-'ing on it—" "But Colin—" Ann said hesita-! tingly. "Urn?" "What will people say? I mean, the townspeople. Won't they talk if I stay at your house?" "Yes, I'd thought of that," Colin 7mA Miirnic-Sinilh-Cu. s.

"It's too late to d.o it today, but I'll take you to the bank the next time you're up and arrange a checking account for you, and authorize requisitions on the Drake Lumber Company—" * ^ ** Back at the house, Ann went to work in the library, and accomplished a lot. After a while she looked up. "You know. Colin," she said, "you're going to have a perfectly beautiful house. Modified modern, I think—I don't dare go in for anything else, when you have this lovely place to compare it with. Would you like that?" "Glass and chromium?" Colin asked guardedly. "Of course not. silly. I can't imagine you in mium setting . . _ _ _ a smallish house I've planned Us principle, though, is that it may be added on and on to—ells and wings and all sorts of things, if you need expansion. At present it has only one bedroom. That doesn't leave any room for your housekeeper, so I suppose I'd better change it." Colin shook his head. "Leave it," he said. "Figure it as a house for two people who're fond of each other—and room for expansion later." Ann felt a twinge of disappointment. Perhaps that was why Colin was going lo "New York. Probably he was planning on marrying again. She was so extremely satisfactory the way he was. Shover Springs H.D.
