Now, I don't want to inject any oyer. optimistic language into this dispatch. Vienna is heavily damaged, but when we have empha- sizcdn.that point it can be added that relatively speaking she came through her ordeal pretty well. As compared with Berlin, "for example, the Austrian capital is in good shape.

Vienna's visions of tourists are by no means a mirage, but she has many problems, to solve besides the lack of bricks and mortar before those visions can come fully true. Her most pressing difficulty —and this is true of most of the r-ountrv — is the grave scarcity of food. Many people in Austria are uungry. In some sections they are trying to subsist on as little as 79 calories- a day. and that's far below the level that will support health. This is the second time in a quarter century that Austria has learned the hard way what war means to countries which aren't have survived the bombardment. SUFFERERS FIND CURB FOR MISERY DUE. TO.

That's a question which is rendered doubly difficult because much of Europe is asking the same thing most urgently. Grim days are ahead between now and the new harvest. Still, when Austria has surmounted that danger there's no reason why — perhaps in a sma way at first — Dr. Renner's tout ist dream should not come true Austria can achieve this dream i she isn't caught in the whirlpool o international politics growing ou of realignment of the balance o power in Europe. Austria is i the center of that upheaval an there can be no doubt that her in dependence of action is involved i the outcome. Red Cross Continued from Page One Opal Crawford l.QO fered no counter proposals. As to the content of train cre\vs, the unions propose a rule that would require one engineer, one fireman, one conductor and at least two brakemen in road service. The railroads say it is a right of management to determine the number necessary to run a train. The brotherhoods also ask that carriers supply watches to engine, train and yard service employes and pay for their cleaning and upkeep. There is no carrier counterproposal to this demand.

If these methods fail, the safest thing to do is to flush the eye with saturated boric acid solution or to put In some olive oil, castor oil. or mineral oil. The eye should be covered with a pad or a bandage firmly applied to keep it from moving, and a physician consulted.

"Gross cruelly was the charge, I believe." He was very nonchalant about it, but looked as if he would like to drop the subject. Ann, however, persisted. "Cruel? You, Colin? How absurd! 1 mean — you're probably the kindes'.' man who ever lived. How were you cruel to her? Forgive me if I'm being tiresome, but I'd really like lo know — " "You have every right to. My cruelly — my current cruelty— consisted in not being willing lo drop Ihe book I was working on and take her to Europe when the mood suddenly seized her.

But promise me, Ann— if you ever get a yen to go any place- to Tibet or the Congo or maybe the Isle of Man— you'll tell me, won't you?" Ann nodded solemnly. "I won't get a yen when you're in the .middle of a book," she promsicd. "Dear heart," Colin said suddenly, "do you realize thai you have practically no winter clothes?" "I have a fur coat," Ann responded promptly. She hadn't worn it, yet, that rich and lovely thing that had been Colin's wedding gift to her. Shc realized then, lhat she actually didn't have any clothes that would be appropriate under a mink coat. "You'd better run into Seattle and see what you can find," Colin suggested. "I've arranged for you to charge anything you buy' at Frederick's and Best's and Magnin's— if you want lo buy anything anywhere else, you always can write a check."

"Do you s'pose I ? d aare leave my guesls lo shift for themselves?" she asked, then wist- something and ingenuous look, in less than 45 minutes. She was leaving the store, and considering where she would go for lunch, when she bumped into Jock. Quite literally —she hadn't been looking where she was going, and ran straight into his arms, ft was half a minute before he recognized her, and she had lo blink "a lime or two herself. Then they laughed, and he look her arm and steered her to the edge of th<sidewalk. "What luck, Ann! It's been year. How arc you. darling' You'll lunch with me. of course'' 1 Jock was so big. She had forgotten how big he was, and how very handsome. She was wearing brown suede pumps with four- inch heels— it was all right for her to wear high heels when Colin wasn't with her— and still she had to look up to him. All these thoughts ran through her mind before she said, in a voice that was curiously breathless "Of course I'll have lunch with YOU. It's bo nice to see you, Jock— it's been a long time."
