I've stressed the point , of Frarice's illness in previous articles, ljut her position is so serious that it''can't be -overemphasized. It's grave, not only for her but for the world at large, because this important country is -as .vital to global well-being as is your arm to your body. France's case is rendered especially grave by complications. As this column previously has report,ed, she is ill economically, politic- jally and spiritually. She was sick! ening when Hitler loosed his blitzkrieg, and the shock of her frightful defeat, coupled with the hell of the- Nazi occupation, led to the present crisis — for crisis it is My French friend of the dinner conversation is right when he says his country needs moral as well as material;help. She isn't ihe France of old. The general -public is bewildered and is -increasingly inclined to experiment with political nostrums in the hope of finding relief. " Then there's another element 'entering Into the situation, and that is injured pride.' What else -could be expected in the case of a-nation which so long was one of the world's dominant powers? 'France finds it'hard t» accept the change brought by the Hitlerian conquest; and this, has be'eri responsible -for many of her ihterria'tional political moves which haven't found favor In the eyes of all the Allies. She is fighting to retrive Her ; former position. .-..-/ 'France's most 'press'ihg* need is easement in 'the matter of food.

France must have from abroad 'the machinery and supplies : to get her industries into action again. The chief source o f these things for most of the world is, of course, the "United States and i so it is largely to America that France is looking.

If j »h« »pirt Shortage of Meat N fed rs Acute Stage Washington. March 26 — (UP) — A livestock expert told Congress today that city consumers arc threatened with the most ncule meat shortage in history within the next six months. H. M. Comvay. research director of the National Livestock Producers Association, told the House Agriculture Committee tlmt unless something is done, meat supplies will be extremely short or nonexistent. There will be "the most chaotic situation conceivable in the marketing and processing of livestock," he said. As a remedy, he urged the re- rnovnl of nil price ceilings and subsidies on livestock on June 30 — present expiration date of the price control act. He said the immediate effect of the removal of these controls would be an increase in the price of high-grade catle and a decrease in the price of nnore'r grades. "The price of higher-grade cn(- tle would rise no more than t oer cent for the city consumer," tie said: "This would result in n orice no higher than the consumer is now paying on the black mar-" ket." Conway told the commiteo that jnder present regulations. the feeder simply cannot make a profit on heavier, better grade cattle. He said, however, that a "free play" in prices would result in a more equitable price spread between high and low grade catle. Crackdown on Taxes to Extra Billion Washington, March 2fc— (UP) — The House Apropriations Com mitee said today that tax collections this year should total about $1,000,000,000 -more than expected as a result of the internal revenue bureau's "crack-down" on tax evaders. The committee's report accompanied legislation recommending an .additional $233,179,153 to operate government departments and agencies during the fiscal year ending June 30. In recommending the funds, however, the committee criticized federal agencies for spending at a rate .which required deficiency appropriations or cutbacks in activities. 'It said that beginning July 1, it would require the budget bureau to make quarterly reports on funds which were not being administered in accordance with the anti-deficiency law. It will also ask for. explanations from the officials involved. Largest single item in today's deficiency bill was $181,269,469 to cover pay -increases for postoffice and other federal employes. Of that amount, 16,135,000 would go to the Treasury's Internal Reveriue Bureau : for additional employes "to combat wartime income-tax evaders." "Investigations of war - year case^ have determined many -instances of tax evasion, often incidental to black market operations," William T. Sherwood, assistant internal revenue commissioner, told the committee. He said 40,000 leads on attempted evasions have been found and that more would be uncovered. He. said 5,000 agents have been assigned 'to evasion cases. W. H. Woolf, chief of internal revenue intelligence, told the committee that tax evasion "is very widespread and we have not even scratched the surface." Maniac Escapes From Asylum; N. Y. Spreads Alarm New York, Mnrch 20 — (UP)— Special police details under 'orders to "shoot to kill" sought a violent maniac today who wns believed to UP the oitly man ever to 'escape from the psychopathic wnrd of famed Bcllovuc hospital. The madman, described as-of. the most violent type, was identified as Leonard- Gains, 38. n powerful six-foot Negro. Gains broke the bonds Which tied him to his cot; felled n male nurse, Wallace Lucker. 50. with a heavy metal chair, and "terrorised a woman nurse before he fled into the streets after Stealing a blue coat nnd trousers from an outer 'room, To Prohibit Armies Living Off Conquered | Atlantic City. N. J.. March 26 — (/P)— Over Russian opposition, the United States won UNRRA's approval today of a mandate to prevent occupying armies from living off the land they have conquered. The action came after United States Delegates C. Tyler Wood bluntly and openly protested that a Ukrainian-Russian move to sidetrack the argument because it had political implications would be "the course of cowardice." Russian Delegate Nikolai Feo- nov, while arguing that the issue was outside UNRRA's authority and arguing .vigorously for its exclusion from the agenda, did not vote. Neither did France. The resolution, originally proposed by the United States, called upon UNRRA's 48 member nations to direct their forces to refrain from: 1. Consuming locally-produced foodstuff — other than fresh fruits and vegetables of a perishable nature which are in temporary local surplus — "fuel or other supplies" which are normally included in an UNRRA program. 2. Using land or other local resources which could be utilized for the production of supplies to meet relief needs of the local population. Impeding in any way the "equitable distribution of imported and indigenous relief supplies, or the effective use of 'land or local resources for the production of such supplies." The council deferred temporarily action on the final part of the resolution which would, in effect, empower the director general to penalize any violators of the agreement through a downward readjustment of UNRRA aid to their countries.

Tuesday, March 26, 1946 Jean Hershbit in Motion Pictures for 40 Years Hollywood, March 26 —-(/P)— Veteran Actor Jean Hersholt today abserves the 40th anniversary of lis debut in the movies. Starting his career in his native Denmark in 1906, Hersholt began Mlm work in Hollywod in 1914 at ?15 per week. Since then he has appeared in over 450 pictures, including "The Country Doctor" with :he Dionne quintuplets, and "Dr. Christian," which is also a radio show. He is president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. U.S., Britain Continued from Page One should be placed on the agenda." Secretary of State Byrnes was seated in the council in place of the regular United States representative as Gromyko spoke. He lad announced he would argue the Iranian case himself. He con- 'erred frequently with advisers ranged behind his seat at the council table. Six Alexander Cadgona .British representative on the council, was understood to fully share Byrnes' view that the Soviet-Iranian agreement should be brought befnm the council at once for study and approval or disapproval. Byrnes', Cadogan and other top- 'light diplomats here appeared to be grfbwing impatient at the lack nf official information about what is actually going on in Iran and what sort of agreement Moscow and Tehran worked out. Cadogan was reported to have made Hear to the Soviet ambassador that Britain and the United Sites want a prompt airing of the dispute 'and to have urged a full report from Russia as soon as possible. Byrnes' opening speech to the council yesterday was interpreted as seeking to reassure Russia that the United States was not opoosed to realization of legitimate Soviet aims and yet to make clear a firm American opposition to any single- handed Russian pressure maneuvers against smaller neighbor states. ances.

Increase in Grime Alarms FBI Agent Little Rock, March 26—(#•)—Dean R. Morley, special agent in charge of the FBI in .Arkansas, declared An unabridged dictionary printed in Braile requires 32 volumes. Iceland is an island of volcanic origin. today that one of the most "pressing problems of reconversion" was an alarming increase in crime since the end of World War Two. •He spoke at a luncheon session of a meeting of the Arkansas group of the Delta State Ice Association. "Arrest of girls 21 yonrs.of age and under has increased 109 per cent over the four year war period," Morley said. "In the criminal army of .the United Stales ihe j^-i- jority of recruits are from the ranks of juvinlles." He said parents must awaken to the seriousness of the increase , in juvenile! delinquency and that business and civic groups- should >help by sponsoring properly supervised group .recreation and competitive athletics. telephone beingtested Gordon Nelms, general storekeeper near .Jonesboro, Arkansas, calls a neighbor over one -of the first experimental power-line carrier telephones. This newest of all farm telephone service, using electric ppwer lines instead of regular telephone lines to talk over, is now being given field tests by 'the Bell Telephone Laboratories and the Rural Electrification Administration. Power-line carrier telephones will not be ready for general use until numerous tests are completed. When available, they'll go a long way in speeding the extension and improvement of rural telephone service. During the war we installed more than 17,000 new rural telephones, and in the next five years we plan to put in 165,000 more, SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE CO. ST.

Fathers and motners literally held the right of life and death over their offspring. They decided their risings up and their sittings down. They picked out their husbands and their wives for them, and John couldn't marry the girl he loved because Mother thought her too frivolous, or Father didn't like her Father's politics. And Mary WHS made to give up her boy friend and marry an elderly banker because, her parents thought he was a good catch. Sam was a failure because he was made to study law when nature intended him for a farmer, and Sully became an old maid because Mother kept her tied so tight to her apron string that she was never allowed to get acquainted with a man. Aggrieved Parents 'And now look at the young people," cry the aggrieved parents. "We have no control over our children whatever. They won't listen to our advice. They go out nnd get themselves jobs without consulting us about their careers. They marry whom they please, without asking our approval. Why, the first 'time we ever saw our daughter's husband was when she brought him into the room, and said: 'Mom and Pop, Sam und I are going to get married next Thursday.' And they come and go us they choose, though they know perfectly well that we will not permit them to stay out later than 12 o'clock. All of which is more or less true. littlc stooges they once were. Bovs and girls call their fathers and mothers by their Christian names and lalk back to them when they happen to disagree. And they reserve to themselves the right-to live then- own lives in their own ways, instead of cutting them to Mama's and Papa's patterns. But all of this doesn't mean that the children do not love and respect their parents. 1 doubt if any generation of youngsters in the whole history of the world has even been more devoted to their parents, or felt a greater sense of responsibility to them thun .the present one does. loin and Mary may call their father and mother "my old man" or 'my old lady" but they are working hard to support them, and many and many a one of them is giving up love and marriage and children and homes of their own to keep the old people soft and comfortable.. • When parents complain that their children do not love them and respect them and that they have no influence over them, it is their own fault. H is because they are trying to impose their outmoded customs and standards on a generation that has outgrown them. It is because they are trying to enforce tyranny on free souls. It is because they are trying to keep strong, lusty youth in swaddling clothes,'and it will not stand for it. The day a boy and girl get their first pay envelope they cease to be babes and become men and women and if parents recognize this and deal with them on a man-to-man and woman-to-woman platform, we should have no more talk of undutiful children. For the oldest and the closest re- 1-ationship in the world is that of parents and children, and we should — _.. .,...„.. .„ .,,„*_ „, iv . oa i, uc- pui^-uio uiiu fiiiiaren, ana we should Parenthood isn't the graft that it jail like to love our fathers and used to be.

MARY LAST TIME TUESDAY "THE SOUTHERNER" STARTS WEDNESDAY XX Toward the last Colin brought home of January, puppy for Ann—a while wire-hair with blond spots and a circle of black around one eye. Ann was enchanted, and promptly named him Lord Peter Wimsey, over Colin's protest. "But don't you see the resemblance, Colin? He looks just like him;" LAST TIME TUESDAY — J "What Next Col.

We have all the Supplies you Need. —Come in Today— We've Got It WARD & SON ThcUcdin, Phone 62 Druggist "I'm really not much of an authority on Lord Peter's looks." "You like him, don't you?" Ann said accusingly. "Sayers writes top-notch mysteries, but I can't quite work myself up to the exalted passion you have for her hero. Besides, Ann— you can't call a dog Lord Peter Wimsey. How are you going to call him for supper, tor instance? 'Here, Lord Peter Wimsey, r here, Lord Peter Wimsey—'" Ann hadn't thought of that. We'll call him Whiffles for short," she decided. Presently they added a small black kitten named Spooks to their household. Colin didn't think much of that name, cither, but when Ann demanded, "How would you like it if I called them Bluckie und Fido?" Colin hugged her and admitted that he wouldn't like it at all. One day in February, Ann looked up from a catalogue in Ihe morning mail and said, "There's a new Lord Peter, book coming out today—I'm driving to Seattle for it." "You couldn't arrange ^about that here, could you?" Colin, suggested. ! v "Not possibly," she said. il'You know the circulating library never gets books less than six months old—and besides, I want to; buy "Okay, darling. I think you're quite mad, but 1 love you anyway. No one in the world but you would make a trip like that to buy a detective story! 1'ne more I consider your literary tastes, the-less nattered I am at being your favorite author." She didn't get the book, at that. It wasn't out yet .despite the publication date announced in the catalogue. Ann ordered a copy to be sent her to Port Drake, and then wandered around, rather at loose ends— it seemed slightly ridiculous to make that long drive, and return empty-handed. She was delighted when she encountered Connie and Betsey in a department store. Betsey stuck out her feet for Ann's approval, and said proudly, "I've got new shoes." "And very good-looking ones they arc, lamb," Ann nodded. "Come out for lunch with us 1 '" Connie asked. "1 hope you'll drive us—I had trouble with the car and left it in a garage for Davcy lo pick up." "Why not lunch with me here''" "Well"—Connie suid doubtfully — 'Betsey's table-manners, are not the best in the world, though she almost never gets food in her hail- any more—" They lunched in the tea-room, and Betsey behaved like a little lady. Afterward, Connie offered to drive as fur us their house, and save Ann thul much of driving, so Betsey stood on the seat between them, und sung softly as they went along. "You're an awfully good mother, Connie," Ann suid. Connie shrugged. "Just average, she said. When they put Betsey to bed, the two girls settled down in the living room, and Connie suid, "I'll have a cigurct with you belore I start work. If u gracious providence would just see fit to send me sufficient time to do everything I want to—" "Don't you ever get bored, Connie?" "Bored? No, of course not —1 haven't time to be bored. Why, Ann—you aren't bored, arc you?" "A little.-' ' Ann sighed, nnd reached for another cigurct. "It sometimes seems to me that there- ought to be something more to life—" "What else is there?" Connie inquired sensibly. "Mine's full enough. To overllowing, 1 might add. Ann—" She broke of, eying her uppruisingly. •What?" •Why don't you have a baby?" '1 doiit know.

ING able, and you get so ugly, and I'm not at all sure Colin would still love me if r were ugly. I'm sort of a big girl alongside Colin, just normally." Connie snorted, and reached for her knitting. "Well, perhaps you may have noticed that Davey still retains sonic slight affection for me, in spite of having seen me through that—" "That's different," Ann said quickly, alid immediately felt rather silly. It was a stupid remark. "Well, il was just a suggestion. Far be it from me to try to run your life. Bui you should remember, Ann— Colin's nearly forty, and—well, it's just faintly possible that he would like to be able to look forward to some day having grandchildren—" '•Gracious, you're making ancestors out of us, and I'm so young, too!" Ann laughed. She got up and put on ner coat, then leaned over Connie lo kiss her. "Bye, darlin' — you're awfully good for me, you know." "Goodby, Ann. It's been nice having a little time with you. Remember, angel, you've got the makings of an awfully satisfying life, you know." M. S.
