We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer Portrait of a woman down to her last pair of stockings, with no hope for'.another pair in sight: So gently does she handle thc precious pair it takes her five minutes to put them on—a tender ceremony which she leaves until the last thing when getting dressed to go out. No need taking any extra chances on a snag or run. She looks with a skeptical, probing eye at the legs of her hostess's bride table and chairs, searching for rough edges which might spell doom tor that precious pair of stockings. She glances down occasionally to resurvey the situation and to reassure herself that no tragedy has yet occurred. She finds it hard to look plea- ant when she hears about a hosiery sale she missed, but which several of her friends happened We are Dealers For •PACKAftDS "America's No- 1 Glampur Car" • GMC TRUCKS • CROSLEY RADIOS • CROSLEY SHELVADOR REFRIGERATORS Place your Orders now for the New 1946 Models — WE ARE OrJEN 24 HOURS — WYLIE MOTOR (0.

She is looking forward to sum mer this year with especial eagerness. For when the weather is warm she'll get her stockings out of a bottle and quit hounding the empty store counters. She long ago quit asking the foolish question, "Do you have any stocKings today?" on her almost daily round of the stores. If hosiery were on sale there would be <i line of women around the block. Thc deserted look is answer enough to that question. So now she inquires: "Arc you expecting any stockings this month?" Not that it matters much, for she'll never hit thc exact half-hour during which they arc sold, but somehow it gives her hope. Back home, out of thc snow and cold at last, she turns up thc heat and takes off her precious hose, then washes them in what the advertisers promise are "gentle" suds. They'd better be! There probably would be fewer dissatisfied wives neglecting the job of home-making to dabble In outside interests which they feel help them to "express their own personalities" if those women over stopped to size up their No. 1 job. Such an estimate of what they get as Mrs. Jones—homemakcr— and what they ought willingly to give in return might go something like this: "As Mrs. Jones I live comfortably, have the use of a car, have a certain place in the social set-up have my future protected by life insurance, etc. "If I were to go out today and get a job of my owri I probably would have to swap a' house I run as I please for a room or tiny apartment. Chances arc I couldn't alford a car. I would have no protection against future want except what I could save out of my pay check. 1 would have to "make my own way scially—etc." A comparison of what the job of housewife gives a woman 'and what she probably could get for herself if she were thrown entirely on her own would make most women see that being a housewife is not a job to be looked down on, done grudgingly, or slighted for "outside interests." Too Good For the Job? Yet plenty of women who live well, wear good clothes, have their futures provided for—simply because they are housewives—feel they are too good for the job. They spend their lives in dissatisfaction instead of looking on home-making as a well-paid job, worthy of their best efforts, and because of their superior attitude fail to make good homes or keep their husbands happy. "Just a housewife" is the phrase they use for home-makers, failing to sec that being a housewife is one of the best-paid jobs open to women.

The committee will act on three suggestions made by the National Basketball Coaches Association at its meeting here last weekend. The coaches recommended: 1—Redefine the phrase, "in the act oC shoting,' 'in the rule covering a foul committed against a player trying for a field goal in order to give the shoter more leeway and thus prevent so many goals being disallowed. 2—Allow an offensive team to retain possession of the ball after a free throw attempt when a player is fouled in the last two minutes of a game. 3—Amend the rules to permit substitutions in the last four minutes of a game only when time has been taken out. o— Vardaman Hit by Own Men in Affidavits Washington, March 25 — {fP) — t ."^ ,^' W'Hiams, an attorney testified today that two former em- ployes of James K.

So many housewives are doing just that, officials said, that the OPA sugar distribution machinery is in clanger of being thrown out of gear. OPA validated spare stamp No. 9 on March 11 for five pounds ot canning sugar. It worked out a zonal distribution system whereby supplies would be on hand in various regions as fruits and vegetables were ready to be preserved OPA expected the first heavy rail for canning sugar in the South where strawberries ripen early. But housewives all over the country immediately began using the stamps — many of tnem, OP A suspects, for ordinary household use. The situation in New York became so bad last week that distributors were delivering sugar in camouflaged trucks to keep women from mobbing stores. Each ration book holder can get sugar for canning purposes —five pounds with spare stamp !) and five with another stamp to be validated in June or July. So please, said the OPA to housewives, don't rush in and use them before you need thc sugar. In addition to the spare, sugar stamp 39 is now good and another one will be validated May 1. So They Say Nobody In Washington seems to know what our foreign policy is u any, and vyhorc we are going if we arc going anywhere. —Rep. Alvin E. O'Konski (R) of Wisconsin. An attempt is being made by the Russians in Berlin to build up a quasi-Communist party in their zone of occupied Germany by showing special favors to groups of left-wing German leaders. . , . Whatever conclusion may be drawn from these facts—and facts they are—this is certainly not the liberated Europe we fought to build up. —Winston Churchill. In a fundamental way mathematics is responsible for the atom bomb. —Dr. Marshall Stone of Harvard University. The executive intermarriage of U. S. nationality groups indicates they will in time lose their identity. — Or. Milton L. Darron, Syracuse U. sociologist. Now that we arc at peace, never forget that you (soldiers) are not in the Army to );ccp a lot of brass in their jobs back in Washington. You are in thc Army because the United States has taken on thc job in Germany and Japan to protect what we paid an awful lot of American lives to "win. —General Eisenhower.

So now that everybody agrees on thc hcllishncss of spying, what are we going to do about it? Shall we set a good example by cus- manlling our new peacetime information service? Shall we then call the nations together around thc United Nations table and exact from them a promise that this subtle and sinister practice will be renounced from now on? It would be wonderful if we could do that. Perhaps some day we can. But right now it seems realistic rather than cynical to say that we should be foolish to make the attempt. For we should be repeating past mistakes. Heavy armament production and big navies are hellish, too. So, back in the early 'Twenties, the United States called a conference of great powers to scrap some existing warships, .tear up the plans lor others, and put a general stop to expensive, wasteful, provocative preparations for war. The United Stales lived up to all agreements and set a splendid example. War itself was certainly hellish. ' So, back in thc lale 'Twenties, ,... American Secretary of Stale and a French Premier collaborated on an agreement renouncing war as an >i instrument of national policy. The v Kcllogg-Bruind Treaty was signed by B2 of the world's nations. If wars were lo be outlawed, a large standing army was not only hellish but impractical and unnecessary. So the United States set a good example by maintaining, in the year that war again broke out in Europe, a Regular Army of less than 200,000 and a Navy of less than 1215,000 men— even though it had long been evident that the Kcllog-Briand Treaty was just another scrap of paper It blown down the drafly corridors of history.

Lewis calls .ipon his 400,00(1 soft coal miners ,o take a "rest." However, spokesmen for thc bituminous operators predicted the steel industry — core of thc nation's reconversion program — would be affected immediately and that some steel mills would be shut down by April 10. These predictions followed Lewis's decision to terminate his present contract with the soft coal producers as of midnight Sunday.

Bartender Moe Green, now holding forth at thc basement bar at Hunter college in thc Bronx, has invented thc UNO cocktail. "It's a beauty," Green said today, "it's wonderful. It's just what's needed around here. it'll make sour tempers sweet, and weak spines strong. It'ss even make folks like each other better, and will have 'cm all talking the same language—if they can still talk." Moe, who has been a bartender for 20 years, said the new cocktail would contain vodka (if he can get it) French vermouth, Swedish punch, and a dash of orange bitters. "At the end, unless I miss my guess," he said, "they'll also need a glass of good American water." 4Q,OOOCors Produced This Week Detroit, March 27 — (/P) — Production of peacetime cars and trucks probably will go above the -10,000 unit mark this week for the first time since February, 1942, when the war cut off all civilian output.

Wyatt's renewed plea for subsidies to spur thc output of scarce building materials bumped into . oposition today from thc United Slates Chamber of Commerce. A statement by the chamber's board of directors said "we do not believe thc highly controversial subsidy proposal should bo reinserted" in thc measure designed to provide 2,700,000 new homes by the end of next year. The chamber endorsed the bill passed by the House, saying in statement prepared for the Senate Banking Commitee that it gives Wyatt "ample authority." Elsewhere on the housing front, the House by a vote of 335 to be sent to the Senate a $253,727,000 emergency appropriation bill. It is intended to finance 102,530 more temporary homes for veterans and provide funds for the Civilian Production Administration and other agencies to carry out the administration's housing program for the balance of the current fiscal year.

Not Satisfied About Iran Tehran, March 27 — (IP)— United States and British diplomatic officials said today that, despite Russian troop movements northward in Iran, they were still not convinced that thc Red Army intended to withdraw completely from the semi-autonomous Iranian province of Azerbaijan. . An Iranian general staff officer said there had been no renorts either official or unofficial that any Russian troops actually had crossed the Iranian frontier into the Soviet Union. Some observers here foresaw the possibility that the Russian columns now streaming northward might withdraw only as far as Iranian Azerbaijan, which borders on the U.S.S.R. Azerbaijan was the scene of rebellion against the Iranian government last November. Iranian troops sent to quell disorders there at that time were turnbed back by Russian occupation troops. : Meanwhile, a column of Russian combat troops which marched into the Kurdish section of southern Azerbaijan two weeks ago was reported to have deployed to positions which might be considered as potentially supporting tribesmen's attacks on nearby Iranian garrisons, according to official Iranian advices reaching here. The Soviet troops have "made no move toward joining the Kurdish action," the reports added. The Iranian war ministry said reports from remote Kurdistan indicated that the new separationist government of tribal chieftain Ghazi Mohammed had organized an "army of 700 to 1,000 troops" which was being trained by former non-commissioned Iranian officers. An Iranian general staff officer said that attacks by Kurdish guerrilla warriors against three Iranian garrisons — Saqqiz, Sardasht and Baneh — had been resumed, but the "pressure has been greatly lessened." Earlier attacks against these garrisons were halted during celebration of Noruz (New Year's). The general staff spokesman said he had no confirmation of reports that Russian troops were deployed in supporting positions to the rear of the Kurds attacking Saqqiz. There was no doubt, however, that the Russians were withdrawing from many sections of the country. British sources said that Iranian units had moved into the Caspian gea area northeast of Tehran after the • evacuation- of Russian railway guards and highway checkpost personnel from thc towns of Firuzkuh Bonikho, Versak, Polesafid and Si- manda Eht. Other sources said Red Army troops were moving northward toward Babul and the Caspian coast in special trains. The Russians have promised that all their troops will be withdrawn [from Iran within five or six weeks (l!i?!rr M . < l Qns Associated Press . ! NEA> —Means Newsoaoer Enterorlse Ass'n. PRICE 5c COPY UNO Committee Is Deadlocked on Iran Issue With Russia Russian Naval Officer Held as Spy Following Arrest by FBI; Bail Fixed at $25,000 Washington. March 27 — (/P)—A puzzling but spine-tingling spy mystery confronted A-bomb conscious Americans today as FBI agents snared a young Russian naval officer preparing to flee bv ship from Portland, Ore. On the record, LI. Nicolai Gregorvich Redin, 29-year-old member of the Soviet Purchasing Commission at Seatle, was arrested last night on espionage charges involving plans and information regarding the U. S. S. Yellowstone, a destroyer tender assigned to take part in the scheduled atomic bomb test this summer. The formal charge was disclosed late last night by Assistant FBI Agent Julius A. Bernard at Portland, hours after FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover had announced tersely in Washington that Redin had been seized as he was about to board a Russian canning vessel for home. Arraigned before U. S. Commissioner Robert A. Lecdy, the Soviet officer, wearing the uniform of his rank, was asked whether he understood English. Thumping Leedy's desk, Redin cried "I will not talk, I will not talk." He then demanded to see the Soviet consul, who was not represented at the proceedings. But Leedy, fixing bail at $25,000, ordered the officer to be held in Multnomah county jail in default of bond until another hearing is set Redin, a graduate of the Russian naval academy who came to this country four years ago, had been under "intensive FBI scrutiny" for several months, Hoover said in Washington. State Department officials and silent. cut answer to "the NoT'fquestion posed by the arrest: Could atomic bomb secrets be involved? But a broad hint that they might be came from the House Committee on Un-American activities, which for several weeks has been digging into reports that a foreign spy ring is at work in this country. Committee Counsel Ernie Adamson said the group headed by Rep. John S. Wood (D-Ga) has a closed- door meeting scheduled for today adding to a reporter: "I assume after the meeting the chairman will have something to say about this arrest." At Portland, Bernard said Redin was charged with obtaining information about the U. S. S. Yellowstone for use and advantage of "a foreign nation, to wit the U. S. S. R." and had "induced another to obtain plans, documents and writings" relating to a warship of the U. S. Navy. Bernard said the charge ac cused Redin of action "against the peace and dignity of the United States of America." He said the accusations were made in Seattle on Dec. 22, 1945, the day Redin is charged with having obtained the information. The warrant was issued last Friday. There was no annoucement of how the young Russian officer had obtained the documents and plans or whom the officer had "induced" to obtain the information. A naval official disclosed at San I'rancisco that the U.S.S. Yellowstone was to take part in the Bikini bomb test, now set for early July after having -been postponed from May by presidential order. © New York, March 27 — (IP)— The United Nations Security Council's subcommittee, appointed to find a compromise formula in the Iranian case, adjourned after meeting an hour and a half today with thc announcement that "no agreement has yet been reached."

Balancing of Budget Near, Says Vinson Washington, March 27 — (/P) — Secretary of the Treasury Vinson .said today "we are well on the way to a balanced budget" and asked that OPA controls on the national economy be kept "a lonii longer." " "Today we can be more optimistic about the future than ever be- lorc," Vinson told thc House Banking Committee. "II would be pa thetic if we muffed this grand on- porlunity." Thc committee is considering legisalion lo keep OPA going another year. Vinson said treasury receipts arc larger than estimated, expenditures are smaller than expected and "the two together mean that we are well on the way lo a balanced budget." He disputed contentions of the National Association of Manufacturers and others that removal of all price controls would stimulate production of scarce goods. "It would be stimulating —slim- "huing^n a fanciful, dizzy sort of ...— „,_, chief declared there would be so much effort in "beating the market" and concentrating on speculative gains that 'we would find total production decreased rather than increased." Despite the nation's "sound and pleasant" finaseial picture, Vinson said, -taxes must remain high."

Wyatt, national housing expediter, said he was convinced that yesterday's CPA order is stringent enough to release materials for the 2,70,000-home goal set by President Truman. The order forbids thc start of any new construction or repairs— except small jobs ranging from $400 for a dwelling lo $15,000 for an industrial plant — without express approval of one of the new field offices. In reiterating his plea lor $GOO,000.000 in subsidies, Wyatt told thc Banking Committee yesterday that even with such "premium payments" he is afraid home building costs are to go up some more. The former Louisville mayor said about the best that can be hoped for is lo keep housing costs in line with thc general price trend. Right now, he asserted, buildings costs are shooting up far faster than other prices. ———o- OPA Extends Controls on Housing Cost Litle Rock, March 27— (/P)— The Lille Rock districl OPA office, extending its controls over cost of iiome construction in Arkansas, today issued a dollars-and-cents order covering a variety of building materials in Sebastian and Crawford counties. / II also announced Ihe Dallas office had issued a similar order on prices of insulation in Ihe Texarkana area.

Among the travelers will be 316 children ranging in age from one month to 16 years, <is well as wives parents and in-laws of the service men.

Others, it said, delayed because they were spending recnlistment furloughs at home. "" ——O— — Carpenter's Body Found in N. L R. Little Rock.

He asserled that no secret agree- menl has been reached "either in Tehran or elsewhere." The Soviet decision to withdraw her troops from Iran, he said, was "entirely due to Premier Ghavam's insistence" during his negotiations with Generalissimo Stalin in Moscow. Firouz issued the following slate- menl which he said that Radio Tehran would broadcast on the instructions of Ghavam: "Certain agencies and radios have during the last few days slated that the Russian decision to evacuate Iran is as a result of an agreement recently concluded. "Circulation of this news has led to the interpretation thai a new agreement has been signed between Russia and Iran on the question of evacuation. "For the public information il is staled that the evacuation of the Soviet troops will be as a result of negotiations by Ihe head of Ihe government, Premier Ghavam, with Soviel authorities and his insistence on evacuation."

A sub-committee, including representatives of the United States, 1 Russia and France, began meet ing in an effort to find an acceptable compromise formula. Secretary of States Byrnes, So- < yiet Ambassador Andrei Gromy- '!' ko, and French Ambassador Henri t Bonnet went into session in Bon- t[ net's suite on the. 14th floor of the Pierre hotel shortly after 11 o'clock to try to reach. some decision in time for a report to the security council at 3 p. m. today. (2 p. m. Gromyko and Byrnes were ac I companied to the conference by only one aide each. One possible way out of the dif- if ficulty which American officials « appeared willing to accept was a proposal that Iran Ambassador n Hussein Ala should be called by <l the security council merely to present his views on whether his government would suffer if the Iranian case were delayed, as Russia demands, until April 1th. Even this, however, may not be acceptable to Gromyko, whose instructions from Moscow evidently call for him to get a delay or else boycott all council meetings at which the Iranian subject is discussed with an Iranian representative participating. If Gromyko persists in his absolute refusal to agree to hear any ' statement of Ala and if the United States is equally adamant about allowing him to speak, then' it appeared almost certain that Russia would be out-voted in today's full council session, that Ala would be invited, and that Gromyko might then either walk out of the meeting or absent himself at any sessions at. which Ala appeared. ; " .Officials in private conversations .made, clear that the reason.for the- American • insistence' 'for " hearing Ala is that no agreement has' yet been completed between Iran and Russia, and that although Red Army troops are moving out of Iran the situation is still one which might work to great disadvantage of the smaller nation.
