The Hit- lerites robbed them of live stock of all - sorts. France, Holland, Belgium, and other countries were striped of cows, sheep and pigs, and along with these went the all imporlant work-horses. It is true that some parts of Germany are now betler off for live stock than are the pillaged countries. For this reason part of the farming areas of Ihe reich are doing fairly well for food despite the shortage of grain and vegetables. That is small solace to the urban districts, how- Eisenhower Asks Draff Be Exfended Washington. March 21— (&}— Gen. Dwight D, Eisenhower asked Congress today to extend the draft law indefinitely and to limit service liability to inductees to 18 month's. If that is done, the chief of staff told the House Military committee, the army can release all fathers by the end of August or early in September regardless of how long they have been in service. It it is not done, he warned, the Army may fall short by 163,000 men of its estimated needed strength of 1,070,000 of Julv 1 1947. Both Eisenhower and Secretary of War Robert P. Paterson argued against proposals for a shorter extension of the Selective Service act. which expires on May 15 of this year. "Should the Selective Service act not be continued and should our recruiting program fail to establish and sustain a volunteer army of the requisite size." Patterson said, "the military position of this country, and therefore our ability to preserve the peace we have'won. would become precarious.'

Stimson said this meeting discussed the possible meaning of the Japanese move — possibly an at tack on the Philippines, on Thailand. the Dytch East Indies, Singapore, or Rangoon. "The possibility of an attack on Pearl Harbor was not discussed x x x," he said. Stimson went on to say that all agreed the Japanese expedition must not be allowed to land in the Gulf of Siam, "that if the Japanese got into the Isthmus of Kra, the British .would fight; and, If the British fought, we would have to fight." . "We decided, therefore,- that we could not just sit sfill and do nothing," he continued. "On the other hand, we also decided that -we could not attack without a further warning to Japan, and we discussed what form the warning should take. The president suggested a special telegram from himself to the emperor of Japan. After some discussion it was decided that he would send such a leter lo the emperor, which, would not be made public, and thai al the same time he would deliver a special message to Congress reporting on the danger and reporting, whal we would have to do if the danger happened." As it developed, this program was not followed. Stimson explained that the president went to Warm Springs, Ga., for Thanksgiving and thai in the interim between his return Dec. 1 it was learned that the Japanese expedition was landing in Indo-China rather than going on into the Gulf of ST.

EXTENSION DOOMED London, March.,21 — CUP> — The British government today oposed a^ request by Russia for a 16-day postponement until April 10 of the United Nations Security Council meeting scheduled to open Mon- I day in New York. A foreign office spokesman said there was "no inclination on the part of his majesty's government to support the Russian request" for the council postponement. "We have had a note in the Kremlin for three weeks about the Russian treaty violate on, "the spokesman said, "and it is our view that this is a mater of extreme urgency on which no postponement is advisable." The reference was to a British note to Moscow on the Soviet retention of troops in Iran beyond March 2, Ihe date fixed by treaty for withdrawal of all foreign troops from that country. -- o Red Cross Continued from Page One Mr. & Mrs. Lloyd Sutton 5.00 Mrs. O.

Paterson told the committee that extension of the draft should be coupled wilh a 2(1 per cent overall increase in pay and allowances tor all military personnel. .Eisenhower suggested that legislation extending the draft contain these restrictions: A prohibition against service for more than 18 months: a requirement thai no more men be Inducted than are necessary to meet estimates of strength required by July 1. 1,047; .and a stipulation that the army ! discharge all fathers how in serv- j ice and decline lo induct any in | the future. He told the committee that strength is necessary to support the position of the allies in the United Nations Organinztion and said the smaller nations are look- ins; to the larger ones to supply that strength . While Eisenhower said the short' age in manpower requirements of the army would be 165,000 by July |1. 1947. Patterson estimated the shortage at ',70.000 men if the draft law is not extended. The secretary said present army strength is about 2.500.000. with a net' reduction of one million expected between now and ncxl June. He said the War Department in-, tends to continue a vigorous re-1 cruitment prograpi. and already there have been 617,000 enlistments, more than half of them for a three-year period. The top army men were also lo appear before a closed session of the Senale Military committee to testify on the draft extension.

They said the government report yesterday on farmer intentions of spring grain plantings had little or no effect and that the market met i no sustained pressure or demand. Although the report was described generally as about what traders ex peeled, some expressed surprise. aL .he lower indicated oats plantings. The grain had scattered support mosl of Ihe day. Buying orders for wheat conlin- ued to accumulate but offerings were absent or negligible. 4 There were a few sales of May corn at :he ceiling price.

STOCKS New York, March 21 —(/P) Selective buying -kept the stock market on betler than an.even ke'ej today although many leaders were indifferent. ' • Dealings, fairly active at the start, later slowed. Low-quoted utilities came out in large blocks and helped volume. While gains of fractions to 2 or more points — there were several wider climbs— were well distributed in the final hour, scattered losers persisted. Transfers were around 1,200,000 shares. Bids again were based on individual situations, lessening foreign tensions and the urge to employ idle capital. Railway bonds steadied.

O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service Patients with shingles (herpes zoster) usually are sick three or four days before the skin eruption appears. Infection Is caused by a virus which attacks the clusters of nerve cells near the spine or skull, the fibers of which pass beneath the skin eruption. The first signs of shingles are fever and pain; the sudden appearance of red blotches and blisters in a band around one side of the boc-.y or over the face reveals that it. was shingles which was "working" on tlie patient. The eruption requires only three or four days to appear, but new patches may develop up to two weeks after the onset. The small blisters form crusts in a few days, then scabs, and these separate in two or three weeks. About the third week scars or patches may appear. PAIN VARIES WITH AGE Pain inshingles results from 1.1- fection of the n e r v e. In young persons this may be a minor disturbance, but itching and burning can be troublesome. In older individuals the pain usually is severe, especially when the face Is affected, and it may last long after the skin is healed. The glisters on the skin bear a striking resemblance to chick- cnpox, and generalized eruptions which sometimes develop may be confused with chickenpox. Treatment of shingles includes relief of the irritation and pain and prevention of skin infection. Sedatives are given and the affected skin may be covered with collodion dressing. Deep X-ray treatments given by experts may bring relief from pain, especially in the severe, persistent types. The place at which shingles virus enters the body is not known. Epidemics have been observed. Infection may be spread by the skin eruption. One attack usually is followed by immunity. Eye complications of shingles may be severe and require special treatment. DIAGNOSIS DIFFICULT Ordinary cold sores arc also can s e cl by a virus, and the pain, smarting, and burning are due to the affected nerves. Extensive cold sores may resemble shingles, but the outlook for a speedy recovery is more favorable in them. When neuralgias precede the skin eruption, it is impossible to make a diagnosis of shingles, but it is suspected when the pan affects one side of the body, along the ribs, the face, or the extremities. Patients with shingles require good nursing care and; may -need prolonged bed test. Shingles is a self-limited disease which will run its course. A second attack is practically unknown, although continuous eruptions and secondary infections may prolong the disease. Mrs. Lon McLarty, Mrs. P. H. | Webb Hostess to Gardenia Club The Gardeviia Garden Club met Wednesday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Lon McLarty with Mrs. P. H. Webb as associate hostess. Mrs. Arch Moore, club president, presided ovcl- the busines session, , and the club voted to cooperate with the other Hope Garden clubs in erecting a marker on the courthouse lawn as a memorial to Die servicemen of World War II. The club also voted to plant shrubs on the north side of Rose Hill cemetery. The roll call was answered by giving Bible quotations on birds. Mrs. Steve Carrigan, Jr., presented the program on "Birds Around Your Home." During the social hour the hostesses served a salad plate with DOROTHY DIX Parent's Influence Every child is entitled to two, good parents, but if it can have; only one, it is more important that the superior one should be the mother. Tnis is not to belittle fathers, who are just as much needed morally and socially as they are biologically and financially, it is only because mothers are the potters who handle the plastic clay and put their inclol- ible mark upon it. To a large extent, the fact that a man has a lesser part in the molding of his children is unavoidable. He has to support his family and has to give most of his time and strength and thoughts to housing and feeding and clothing his youngsters and providing for their never-ending wants. He comes home at night tired and worn, without enough energy and pep left in him to gel cnummy with the children. So it happens thai in thousands of-families there is the ironic s.'J> uation of a man who W9rks himself to death to give his children every comfort and luxury without ever gelling acquainted with them, or having the slightest idea of what manner of individuals they are. The old story of the child who asked his mother who was that strange man who spent every Sunday at their house is no quip. It is a bitter truth, for the children know their father as little as he knows them. DETERMINED MOTHERS Another alibi that fathers have for taking so little part in the formation of their children's characters is that H is generally Ihe price of peace in the home. For so many mothers are determined to monopolize their children, and when the fathers try to assert any authority over the youngsters, they do it at their peril. Many a man's heart breaks when he sees his weak and silly wife ruining his children and knows that (t, ne is powerless to stop it. For the Inferior woman's influence over her children is just as great as Ihe superior woman's is over hers. So the wise child, if it cannot have both a great father ancl a great mother, puls his rtioney on Mom. It has been said thai every greal man had a great molher. Thai is because Ihe women who have brains and brawn and slrenglh of characler hold Iheir children lo the best lhat .is in them and make them develop whatever abilities they have. They fire their ambitions. They coddle no weaklings. They put up wilh no quitters. Always they hold before Ihem a flaming lorch. The weak molhers weep over their children because they have lo work, because they can't have all the things lhat rich children have, because Ihey lack what they call opportunities for advancement in the world. The superior molhers leach Iheir children to make their own opporlunities. They hold them lo Ihe hard task when it gets to be a mailer of sheer nerve lo <3o il. They make Ihem feel that self- pity is something to be ashamed of. They breed in them the conquering spirit that carries them on lo whalever goal Ihey have set before Ihem. It is the' superior mothers who .see that their children get educations; who teach Ihem self-control and courage even in their cradles; who make them behave themselves and miiTd their manners and their morals, and bring them up to be good citizens. Probably not one child out of a thousand who had a superior mother ever goes astray. ' Lucky, indeed, are the children who have both good fathers and good mothers. But if there can be only one parent who is on the job of rearing the family, il had belter be Mom.

"WherXGood Shoes Are Fined Correctly" 'S FAMILY SHOE STORE 101 E. Second St. CQRUN FOSTER Phone 1100 THE STORY: Ann has a run- in with Beulah Bedelle, self-styled social arbiter of Port Drake, on their first meeting. Beulah claims the first Mrs. Drake is her best friend. Ann later meets and makes friends with lovely Joan Warren and her four youngsters'. Joan is amazed to learn that Ann is the new Mrs. Colin Drake. XVI Ann grinned at Joan. "You don't know Colin, do you?" "Of course I know him," Joan said indignantly. "Slan is quite an impprtanl execulive of Ihe Drake Line. He's been after me' lo call on you, but you know the way it is—" She gestured sweepingly over the heads of her children. '"I don't go in for society," she added. "Nor do I," Ann said. "Perhaps it's just as well if the lady I mel this morning is the arbiter. Somehow, she didn't seem to respond to my fresh and girlish charm." "Dear Beulah," Joan murmured. "No one likes her —but she's got 'em buffaloed. Or maybe Skippy likes her, Ihough it seems incredible. He's a lamb, and everyone loves him—" "Who is Skippy?" "Her husband. It's short for Skipper — everyone called him that until Stan came along and changed il lo Skip'py, on accounl of he adored Ihe Lawrenceville stories in the days of his youth. He's Stan's boss. Stan's my husband. But you were saying something about Beulah being social arbiter —Mrs. Colin Drake is that, whether she goes in for society or not, and don't let Beulah kid you." "She told me lhal Colin's former wife is her mosl intimate friend," Ann said diffidently. Joun snorted. "Don'l you believe it. Beulah would have liked lo have been, that's all. She's — well — she doesn't believe in divorce, and has aired her views rather freely that you and Mr. Drake are — urn, I guess I. should rememeber the widely quoted saying about litlle pilchers. You get my point— Of course she doesn't '!o on to say that Millicent is, too, lul she never was noted for her logic." "Dr. MacDougal doesn't think so— he married us," Ann said. 'And somehow I value his opinion rather more than Mrs. Bedelle's." Small Alan, beside her, downed the last git of ice cream and set his spoon down carefully. He turned and looked al Ann, his eyes large and questioning. "What," he demanded, "are you talking about?" Ann smiled at him. "Hi, fella," she said. "I didn't know you could talk, you've been so quiet." "I don't talk with my mouth full." he rebuked her gravely. "Every evidence of a proper upbringing," Ann agreed solemnly. "Do you suppose you could bring your mother over to see me sometime?" Alan, apparently, had a literal mind. "No," he said, after considering it carefully, "because I'm not allowed to drive yet. But I'll speak to her about bringing me over. It's a little hard on account of the children's naps, but if we could come in the morning—" "Joan," Barbara said, "1 could cat some more ice cream—easy." Joan said "No," gently but firmly, and ignoring her further protests turned her attention to Ann. "Alan is the only stickler for Ihe proprieties in the family. He calls me 'Molher' so meticulously and consistently thai he's gol Slan doing il— and every lime Slan calls me 'Mother' he has lo buy me a present to keep me from leaving him, so it's working out quite well. 1 have to get these youngsters home and put 'em away for a couple of hours— 1 never love Ihem quite so much as when they're just bedded down for their naps. Could you come wilh me? Or would you be bored?" Ann wouldn't, and said so wilh emphasis. The Warren house was a pleasant, rambling place, of no particular period of design. The rooms were large and livable and hved-m, and even the piled-up furniture and workmen about couldn't disguise that fact. Joan was blissfuly unapoligetic for her house. She had told Ann the floors were being done over, and Ann "*•" had wanted to come out, so Macrnc-Sniith-Co. i. DtolribiiM l»y. NEA SERVICE. ING she felt no apologies necessary. After putting the children to bed, they curled up in the window- seat in the master bedroow, overlooking Ihe Sound, and lit ciga- rets. "How old are you, Joan?" Ann asked impulsively, then added, "I'm sorry. I didn't really mean to be impertinent." "Dear child, I'm not ashamed of my age. Rather proud of it, in fact. I'm twenty-eight. I was graduated from the University when I was twenty-two. Stan and I had been married for six months then, and Alan was on the way, but I was determined to get my degree. To prove to myself and Ihe world lhat I was a domestic science expert, you see. I've been proving il ever since." "And I'm going on twenty-five myself. I'd better get going, on a family, hadn't I?" Joan studied her clgaret. "It's not a bad idea," she admilled. When Colin gol home lhal night, Ann was radiant. "I've found a friend in town, Colin—1 can call her that already, although I've only known her today." "Who?" "Joan Warren—AND her four bright anu beautiful youngsters." "She has a bright and beautiful husband, too," Colin said. "I'm given to understand he is very valuable lo Ihe Drake Line. I'm glad you've found a friend, my darling —you haven't seemed to take much to local talenl so far." "She's real— and admirable — and altogether swell. I'm so glad I've met her." She was so pleased with Joan, she quile forgol lo tell Colin of her less pleasanl meeting of Ihe day.
