The answer as I see it'iis this: The danger of a further upheaval does exist. However, war not only Isn't inevitable but the - balance is on the side of peace at this •writing. And what has created such a threat as exists? Well, there's no great mystery about that. It's due to differences among the major powers • in connection with the realignment of the zones of in- flifence both in Europe arid in Asia. Power politics is another designation for it. The newborn might of Russia is pounng^into much of. the vacuum created' by the. disappearance of Germany, Italy and ; -Japan as first cla'ss'powers, and "by the disability of France >and Britain to defend their place.in'the sun.'

They added, however, that this week might be one of the most critical since the steel walkout. Strikes against Wcstlnghouse Electric and International Harvester remained to be settled, and the United Mine Workers' (AFLi, were threatening a walkout in the bituminous coal fields. Federal mediators reported that new attempts might be made this week to settle the 70-day-old Wesl- inghouse walkout and the strike which has tied up 10 plants of the International Harvester Co. for Go days.

The agreement came after the American group, headed by Secretary of State Byrnes and Edward R. Stettinius, Jr., received word that delay of One day was agreeable to the Russian delegation under Ambassador Andrei Gromyko. The development gave additional time for the: American, British, Iranian and Russian delegations here to receive official information on the reported Soviet agreement to pull the Red Army out of Iran, and also to get instructions from their governments as to how each should proceed on the case when it does come up before the council. The one sure move thus far seen by officials here was • that the United States definitely would Insist on a report from 'both Russia and Iran on whatever an agreement has been'made, and attempt to put behind any agreement, assuming it is approved here, the full prestige of the council to assure its enforcement. : 0- ; George Terry to Be New Coach of Pine Bluff Zebras Pine Bluff, March 25 — (/P) — George Terry, a war veteran, will head the Pine Bluff physical education department and serve as coach of all sports. in senior and junior high schools next year, it svas announced today.

Tai Li, he ; ad of the Chinese secret police and one of the most mysterious and powerful men in China, was believed dead today after the crash of his plane at Nanking Thursday, The circumstances of his reported death were almost as mysterious as his little known role behind the scenes in China.

Troops News Canada Hears Montreal, March 25 — (UP) — Soviet agents in Canada were or- derefi by Moscow to obtain information on American troop movements 'to Europe and from there to. Asia, , it was revealed today at the hearing of a Canadian Communist charged with giving secret information to Russia. Moscow wanted to know, it was disclosed in a cable of last August, tne location of army headquarters of the 9th U. S. Army, the 3rd, 5th,. .7th and 13th Armored Corps; 18th. Armored Division ,and also several' infantry and tank divisions. The cable also asked the location of the U. S. 1st Air Descent Army and plans for its future use. The disclosure came as the crown continued its case against Fred Rose, Communist member of the Canadian Parliament, and Prof Raymond Boyer of McGill University, both charged with giving Canadian secrets to Russia. The cable pertaining io troop movements said the information was r wanted to "confirm the official; facts." It was part of new documents presented by the crown and was based on information given by Igor Gouzenko, former secret codes clerk in the Russian embassy here, who tipped off Canada about the Soviet espionage ring. Today's documents disclosed that the ring was operating for the last two years, and that Moscow also demanded that its agents in Canada furnish a documentation of atomic bomb research both before - and after the first atomic bomb wiped Hiroshima off the earth.

Dispatches from Mukden said that four regiments of Communist reinforcements under Gen. Lin Piao had hotly contested government entry into Fushin, important coal center 30 miles east of Mukden. . . ,j» The Communist forces now are withdrawing to the northeast under the pressure of'government forces, which are continuing to advance, /he eport declared. Ho Ping Pao, Chinese army newspaper, reported the occupation of Fushun and said another central government column driving up the Dairen-Mukden railroad from the south had occupied the rail center of Liaoyang, 30 miles south of Mukden. Liaoyang is approximately halfway between Mukden and the great steel center of Anshan, where the column was reported yesterday. The Fushun battle report was the first indication of any serious clash between the two forces in the area, where observers have feared that such an engagement might provide the spark needed to rekindle the smouldering civil war. Meanwhile, the Communist New China Daily News published a Manchurian dispatch saying that Gen. Chow Pao-Chung, commander of the pro-Communist Third Route Army of anti-Japanese Allied forces, had demanded recognition of his troops by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek. In a telegram to Chiang, Chow likewise demanded permission for entrance of Harbin, the dispatch said. Abolition of the government secret service and severe punishment of the assassins of Li Chao- Ling, chairman of the Sino-Russian Friendship Association, who was recently slain at Harbin, also was demanded.

Oat prices which were' up xrac- tions of a cent in the early trade sllped sharply under the .'liquidation. May rye broke sharply in the final few minutes of trading, ex- j tending the setback around :i cents 'for an extreme decline of 4 -cents or more for the day. • Wheat and corn remained at ceilings of $1.83 1-2 and $1.21 1-2; oats unchanged to 1 1-4 down, May 83-cent ceiling; rye unchanged to' 4 5-8 down; May $2.16 7-8—2.17 1-4; barley 1-4 higher to 3-4 lower, May $1.26 1-2 ceiling.

Untreated, a cold lasts •about a week. OTHER GERMS FOLLOW After the virus cold runs its course, there is a tendency for the nose and throat to be infected by other germs. The second infection lasts two or three weeks, and the nose discharges thick, yellowish material. This stage may bo complicated by sinusitis.

I have seen people tortured and beaten lo dcalh, but I came back to my home town to witness a woman enduring a cruelcr fate by being killed by gossip, The victim is the finest, swcelesl wife any man could ask for, yet her mother-in-law has started talcs about ncr that are absolutely false, but that arc breaking lhe heart of Ihis girl wife who is also the mother ot two children. In the last three months she has gotlen so Ihin she is just a walking shadow of her former self. A consultation of doctors can find nothing the matter with her physically, but we, who know her, know that the mental agony that her mother-in-law is inflicting upon her is killing her. She won't light back. All she says is: "I know 1 am absolutely innocent and I think my husband loves me enough not to believe the tales my mother-in-law is telling." Should we write lo her husband, who is in Japan, and tell him what his mother is doing? EX-VETERAN NO SENSE OF DECENCY ANSWER: No one can stop a vicious woman's tongue, and any mother-in-law who would defame her son's innocent wife is beyond all remorse and all sense of decency, so any chance of changing her attitude is remote. However, if she is really killing the girl wilh her gossip, certainly lhe husband should, at least, have a chance of being told of it in time to save his wife's life. But one of lhe tragic phases of the situation is that nothing thai he can say to his mother is likely to keep her from going on with her smear campaign, and it will almost drive the man crazy if, on account of his military duties, he is prevented from coming home and wmi jcaiousy anu UL-ing imuu wnn suspicions.

I have a good husband, but honestly I am so bored 1 could die. Is there any cure for boredom? BORED SOUL ANSWER; Well, 1 should think thai iiny woman who had three babies to wash and feed and keep from committing suicide every hour of the day and most of the night, wouldn't suffer from boredom. I would think she would have an acute attack of nervous prostration, and that by the time she , had pulled the youngsters out of each other's hair a thousand times a day and had answered a million calls for M-o-t-h-e-r, she would be too exhausted to even crave any amusement. She would be like the old woman who said she hoped there wasn't any resurrection. She hoped when she died she could lie in the grave a billion years and rest. But there is only one cure for boredom. It is finding excitement and pleasure in whatever you are doing, whether it is breaking rocks, or running a government, or being a baby-lender or a glamour girl. Your children indicate your remedy.
