MacKENZIE •AR World Traveler' ^Aboard a Trans-Atlantic Airliner, Inarch 28 — The edition of a Paris newspaper I bought just before boarding this plane for New York is splashing headlines which, if placed before some hermit not familiar with recent events, likely MtfSWd impel him to the belief that relations among the major powers H88 gone to the dogs. • •• "There is Russia's initial setback in the UNO security'council over the-Iranian question after a battle IFrance, backed by Moscow, IfBHHg'that America «id Brit- takje decisive action to unseat fenerjiliSsIflioV Franco's - Spanish |ginjSJ».

That's the, best news I've encountered since starting my European tour in November, for the uncertainties growing out of the unsettled differences between Russia. Britain and America have had a highly disturbing influence. It is this situation which has had much to do with creating the belief that another global conflict is inevitable — an idea which I have heard ad- vanced repeatedly in many places on the continent.

"There have been other international missions to hold elections," he said, "but this is the first I know of whose purpose is merely lo observe elections. "We were told on the'highest authority that the sole American interest was to see that there was a fair election in accordance with Greek law and that the expression of free will of the Greek people was our sole target. We were told to exercise complete pfijectivity. "By our scientific sampling we hope to be able to give our government a complete picture of the Greek political situation. This is the first time this method has been employed get at the facts of an election." The observers travel by jeep or mule and one team had to walk 20 miles lo reach one isolated snowbound mountain community. They talk to voters and candidates of every party, hear their complaints and counter charges, but take no action, beyond making an official report to the mission itself which will relay the information back to ils respective governments. In ihis hazy siluation it is somewhat difficult for the bystander to see what it all adds up to. But jt. is apparent that the mere presence of these American, French and British observers — plus the fact there are British troops here by invitation and Royal Air . Force planes zooming over the countryside — constitute what the top- hatted boys in London and Washington might call "a stabilizing influence." Elsewhere in the Balkans Russia exercises the "Stabilizing influence." • . ...• - ••• Dr. Wells says'the Allied observers have been enthusiastically welcomed. • .

Probe Lobby Activities of Bureaus Washington, March 28—(/P)—The lobbying investigation Congress is contemplating took a turn today in the direction of government bu reaus and Democratic party otli- cials. House Rules commitee members, who tentatively approved ihe' inquiry yesterday, told reporters privately that was their purpose in widening the course of thc proposed search for facts. Eventually, they said, the investigation m<>y encompass such officials as Robert E. Hannegan, postmaster general and chairman of the Democratic National committee, as well as other administration leaders. "We have decided," one member told a reporter, "to make ihis a full fledged investigation while we are at it and to inquire not only into the activities of so-called professional lobbyists but also thc pressure tactics of federal bureaus interested in legislation." The inquiry, proposed originally by Rules Chairman Sabath (D- 111),. would have been made by a special five-man committee. But the rules group, in approving it subject to House action, directed Sabath. to amend his resolution before sending it to the floor. The amendments would order the .inquiry to be made by the Rules committee and would broaden its scope to include not only All groups, associations, committees, organizations, or combinations thereof" seeking to influence legislation, but also government agencies and officials. • "If .it is wrong for a businessman to try to influence the course of legislation, then it is wrong also for government officials to exert undue pressure on members of Congress," a committee member said. "There, has been more lobbying done around here recently by bureaucrats trying to stay in power than by anyone else,' 'he added. o Christian Church Fellowship Meet at 7:30 Thursday An interesting program has been arranged, with good food by thc ladies of the church, for the Men's Fellowship Group meeting at First Christian -church at 7:30 o'clock Thursday.

There will be a solo by Ted Jones, and piano music by Miss Betty Ann Benson. tions. The committee, following a closed session yesterday, reported that it would send an investigator to Canada to confer with officials on the alleged Soviet spy ring in that country and would start hearings within the next two weeks on reported attempts to steal U. S. atomic bomb secrets. There was no immediate claim, however, of a link between Redin and other reported activity. The FBI continued silent on thc identity of the person from whom Redin is alleged to have sought information on thc U.S.S. Yellowstone. U. S. Marshal Jack Canfield said. No plans or documents connected with the case were found on Redin at time of his arrest. Reuters Wins Presidency of Auto Union Atlantic City, N. J., March 2fi— i.—Walter ReulhcT, newly-elected I president of the CIO United Auto '• Workers, launched his big union [toward new spheres of influence today. I Reuther detente R. J. Thomas,, president for seven years, for the leadership yesterday by the slim margin of 125 votes in a turbulent four-hour roll-call at the union convention, marked by fist-fighting and confusion. Thc official count was .|..|45 to 4,320. Another political fight bobbed up as Thomas accepted friends' urgings and decided to seek one of thc two vice presidencies in today's elections. A big cheer went up from the floor when the defeated president accepted nomination for a race with Richard T. Leonard and Melvin Bishop, Detroit regional directors. The Rcuthor forces had been reported agreeable to election of Leonard and Bishop, the former an original Thomas supporter and the latter an "independent."

We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer A nation-wide poll shows thai the chief fault of wives— in the opinion of American husbands— is nagging Now, nagging is such a deadfy feminine fault it isn't likely thc nation's wives would knowingly be guilty of it. U must bc tf 0 \ many women don't know where persuasion ends and nagging be- " ' Certainly, no housewife can go through life without making many unwelcome suggestions to her husband. "The basement needs cleaning, for example, or "You really should do something about sucli- and-such." Just when do such promptings become "nagging", to the masculine mind? That is what women apparently need to know. Perhaps a safe rule for wives would bo to mention a subject twice, both times in a friendly rather than an accusing lone of voice, and then lei the matter drop. Of course, the basement might wait a long time to be cleaned. But so what? Let it go long enough, and one day the man of the house is likely to say, "I guess I'd belter get at that basement." And the job will bc done, though perhaps not just when Mama thinks it should be looked after LESSER OF TWO EVILS Certainly, it is much better to have a cluttered basement than a husband who is glad to be able to tell a poll taker that na"- gmg is the worst fault of wives. .Slipping into the habit of nagging their husbands is porbably so easy for women because thev have to keep after the kids to get them to do as they should. Repetition becomes part of their attack. But while children seem to expect a certain amount of parental nagging ("Johnny, don't lake such big biles!"), a man's dream home is a place where he can escane from the nagging demands of life. When his wife refuses him that escape, he is hitler enough, natur- •ally. to acusc her of woman's most annoying personal trail — nagging. GRATITUDE Manhattan Beach. Calif., March 26 —(/I 1 )— Mrs. Ruby Bigelow has an admirer on her hands, and can't got rid of him. She gave first aid to a sea lion that had its jaws gummed up with tar, then dumped it back in the ocean. Thc animal jumped right out again and followed her home Every time she puts him back in the water tho sea lion shows up a few minutes later at Mrs Bigclow's home. The Doctor Says: By Dr. WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service Alt winter long you have been stoking your body with foods which kept you warm and active. To help conserve your body heal you worfc heavier clothing, and when you went oustide you moved briskly if the weather was cold When the first warm days of spring .arrived, your appetite fell off. You left your heavy coat at home, wearing a light one instead Still you found it hard to keen going. You didn't have to consult a physician as to the cause of your tired feeling, for you recognized the old familiar symptoms of spring lever. With the first warm days of spring, children notice the heat and want to take off till their winter clothing at once. Parents should not yield to their demands, but should change their clothing as rapidly as common sense dictates. CHANGE DIET NOW Change of diet in the spring is •also indicated. During the winter you have been eating heat producing foods, and now the cooler varieties have the appetite appeal. As soon .as fresh vegetables ap- pc £ r 'i! 1 thc mai'kel, you should add them to your menu. Since vegetables do not have a high rating in calories, they are not heat producing. They supply vitamins •and minerals in largest amounts when they are served fresh. Heavy lunches should be replaced by spring salads .to help avoid that logy feelinH. The heal regulating mechanism of the body is controlled by a spot in the brain. In a way it resembles the lilllc gadgel 'on the wall in your home, as it regulates body beat by opening and shutting the exit of heat through the skin BODY IS ADAPTABLE When the body is completely at rest, heat production is lowest During physical exertion, heal production rises, and this causes the blood which flows through the brain to stimulate thc control spot The nerves carry the impulses to the skin vessels, which dilate, thus causing more rapid loss of heat. If the temperature of the surrounding air is too high to allow heat to be lost this way, more impulses come through from the center of .the brain, and the sweat glands arc stimulated to .activity 1 hen heat is lost by evaporation bprmg lever is caused by the body s changing over from a winter to a spring schedule. It takes tune lor your body to make this adjustment. Change your diet to lighter foods, change to lighter clothing and take it easier. If you do these things, it won't be long before the switch-over is complete. A couple of Gi's stationed in Australia decided to snap some kangaroos and send the pictures back home. They borrowed a jeep and started out. Soon they spotted one and the driver stepped on the gas. Finally he turned to his buddy ; and .yelled, '"It's' no use chasing that thing." "Why not?" We're doing G(5 now and have you noticed our friend hasn't put his front, feet down yet?"-Labor Digest. Broadway By JACK O'BRIAN New York—Rambling around the Stem: Sam Salvin, manager of the plush Monte Carlo, reminisced of the time when his dad, one of the largest cafe operators in his day, with dozens of spots running under his direction at once, pulled a fastle on the saloon society mob. . , Cafe circles like nothing belter than an exclusive night club. . . The more snobbish it is, Ihe harder they atlempl to squeeze in. . . So Sam s pop advertised the opening of a now cabaret. . . and starled the band playing, the staff t'o work in its fanciesl duds, Ihe lighls ablaze. . . but wouldn't let a soul in^ thc front door. To every prospective customer, the old boy gave the same explanation: "Sorry, but we're sold out. Haven't gol a lable." When the crowds saw such normally welcomed guests as Tommy Manville, Flo Ziegfeld and other publicity- atrncling trade being turned away, the world quickly went the rounds that here was the most exclusive place of all Broadway's history. . . When it permited the crowed in. willy-nilly, three nights later, it became, actually, the most exclusive club in Manhattan, and stayed just as popular until someone thought up another and bcler swiftie. The celebrity nights, so called, in the various Broadway night clubs have been cracked..'down on by the American Guild of Variety Artists. No longer will the little joint of any size and reputation be able to hustle itself a weekly floor show because of the agile imagination of some swift-talking- press agent. ... .The practice grew to abuse, and where several of the clubs conducted these affairs in excellent, taste, it had progressed to a point where every little hole in the wall beat its drums about its "celebrity nights," which actually were nothing but collections of mediocrity gathering in a lot of unsuspecting customers, usually out-of- lowners who couldn't be informed in time that it was a silly, vicious little practice. No clubs wishing to have cele- brity-parlies can do so by paying the performers who get up to do a turn one-seventh of their weekly salary. About the only major club in its stride is Leon and Eddie's whose Sunday night celebrity shindigs always have been the best of those around Broadway. There really are celebrities packing the place each Sunday evening and the list of performers would read like a roster of movie, stage and radio who's who. Faced with giving up this excellent promotional all-action, Leon Enken and Eddie Davis, owners of thc hot spot decided to carry on even if they took a loss, since the resultant advertising and good will made it worth while. . . . "THE JFAR IS OVER BUT THE DURATION LINGERS ON" -FLORSHEIM It's only natural for people to wonder why, with the war and rationing over, there aren't more Florsheim Shoes available. The answer, according to the Florsheim Shoe Company, is that re- conversion is not as easy as it sounds, To change overnight from military to 100% civilian production is no easy task. New leathers and materials must be obtained ... new, highly specialized skills taught them. Above all, Florsheim standards must never be forgotten. We agree with Florsheim that quantity is too high a price to pay for the quality that has built the largest fine shoe business in the world. TALBOT'S "We Outfit the Family" New York — Back'when a ri otcus larce called "Roome Service' was bought for the daffy use of the Marx Brothers at thc then un heard-of price of $255,00,' Broad way took the news with an excited cynicism, envied the authors John Murray and Allen Boretz btr agreed all around thai it nevei could happen' again. Then came along a series of even more fabulous movie purchases of Broadway hits, each time bringing with it more of the same dervish cynicism: it just couldn't keep happening.

'.'I've got to put on my red pajamas, and I don't want to put on my red pajamas, but I can't go busting in un our guests to got myself a change of clothes, can 1?" Breakfast was quite successful. Nina and Jock botli were in good spirits, and there was no under- fill rent of friction' apparent as was so often the case when they wore logclher. Ann sat quietly and played the gracious hostess, . surreptitiously feeding her canta- 'loup balls lo Spooks, who hud a tremendous passion for the .Vuit, replenished coffee cups, passed cream and sugar and butler and marmalade, all rather automatically. After breakfast they went into the living room and sat around in front of the fire, talking of casual and unimportant things, as one does when well fed, and com- tollable. Once Colin wont to the window and peered out a little anxiously. "I think there's a bad storm blowing," he announced. "We must go," Nina said, making no move. "Yes, we really should," Jock agreed, settling deeper into his chair, and lighting another ciga- rcl. "Colin's begun a collection of incunabula," Ann said. "Did he show it to you?" Nina looked interested. "Oh yes —you were talking to Eddie about it, weren't you?" Ann always felt a slight shock when Nina ro- fened to her father so frivolously. "I'd like to see it, Colin." "It's in the library," Colin said, getting up. "Coming, Jock?" Ho shook his head. "I'm com- forlable— and not. frightfully in- leiesled in •—incunabula," he murmured. "It sounds a little like a disease." Ann heard Colin explaining to Nina as they went into the library, "You sec, I really began it in self-defense — Ann has this tremendous passion for Lord Peter Wimsey, and —" "Oh, there's Whiffles—" Ann said, and ran to the door to open it. "You know you aren't to scratch on the door," she said, scolding him, "Oh, darling, you're all wet— wait right there a minute."

Ann looked up. willing now to face him. Somehow her decision made the previous night seemed to have given her a defense against anything that Jock might do or say. "Are you happy, Ann?" "Passionately," she retorted de- liance in her voice. • "Must you shut me out so, Ann? we were pretty close once you know, and — oh hell, I haven't been so happy since!" "I'm sorry, Jock." Better lo remain impersonal. Beller not lo remind him of whose fault it was. "I can't touch you any more can I, Ann? You've shut yourself away Irom me, and you won't give me a chance. Is it because of —because I was so damn fresh that day we met in town?" Ann shook her head. "That u sn r ""ytn'ng t° do with it at all, Jock— it's just— well, we're finished, aren't we? I don't see any point in our trying a refinement of torture by seeing each other at nil.

"It wasn't Nina who wanted In come here— il was I. She was all for trying to gel through to town. She has no idea of— well, of whal we once meant lo each oilier. But I had to see you, Ann— I had to see you in the new soiling you had made for yourself, and see for myself what kind of a life you were having." "Were vou satisfied?" Ann nskod coldly. "I'm satisfied that you are stronger than I —yes, if thal's what you mean. But I am nol al all saitsfied thai you arc happy. Ann—" Impulsively ho reached out .and grasped her hand. "My dear—" Ann pulled her hand away, and stood up. "1 think you'd better bc getting back to town, don't you, Jock? As Colin said, I think there's a storm coming up." Gather your defenses about you, Ann —quickly, lest they crumble at his touch. "Yes, I think there is," Jock said strangely. In a little while thev were gone. and as Ann shut the" door behind them, she said to Colin, "Darling. must you work today? Let's have this da.v together and just play— and make plans for our fu'ure. I really think it's going to be quite a nice future, Colin. Yoii know, you're an awfully swell person to live with — " "You aren't a little hysterical, are you, darling?" Colin asked, putting his arms around her. "Maybe a little," Ann admitted. Oh gosh, Colin, I thought they'd never go." (To Be Continued) proposition for the producer, author and angels. Again, Broadway said, the millennium had been reached. Then came "Life With Father." II had boon kept off the Hollywood auction block until Authors Lind- FJI.V and Grouse and Producer Oscar Scrlin were good and ready. And when they were ready tl'ie price was good: A percentage arrangement on top of various down payments which will turn It into a $1,000,000 sale. That is not plastic. So—are Lindsay and Grouse sil- ling on their cash laurels? Hardly. "Life With Father is trotting along neatly at the Bijou Theater. Their latest literary antic, "State of the Union," is bouncing along pretlily at thc Hudson, with a counterpart on the road, as has also "Life With Father." And, someone may ask, what happens with "Slate of the Union" in Hollywood. Could anything top the film deal of "Life With Father?". Thc answer comes loudly, sol- venlly, in Ihe clearesl cash register tones—YES. "Stale of the Union" will divvy up among Producer Leland Hayward, .Authors Lindsay and Grouse and their assorted, numerous backers a good deal more than $1,00,000, how much more depending, of course, on the welcome given il by Ihe world's film fans. When the picture is completed and has made its production cost back, those officially interested in the play will share Ihe profits on a clean 50-50 basis with the studio, in this case Paramount. And as films are being peddled in this inflated economy a million dollar profit is almost peanuts. The deal even includes a $300,000 item which Lindsay, Grouse and Hayward share for producing and adapting the film version. After various estimates have been made as to how much thc lads will have as their respective portions after the last golden egg of "State of the Union" has been laid, the consensus seems to be' Lindsay and Grouse—$540,000 each. Hayward—a bit over 700,000; which, of course, he must share 50-50 with his backers. "State of the Union" cost $75,000 originally. It had all but earned back its initial investment on its tryout tour before it came to Broadway. The way the profits are running, the boys maybe should try to take over the Treasury's vaults at Fort Knox. Certainly their office safe can't hold their current fold of cabbage.

For one thing, it eliminates monotony, which is one of the drawbacks to domestic life. There can never be where the husband and wife go a dull moment in a household about with chips on their shoulders, and where each is ready to leap into the fray at the slightest provocation. Also, the battling Smiths, or Browns, or Jones, or whatever their name is, never suffer from being taken for granted by their mates, which is one of the common complaints of matrimony. For in anger, as in wine, truth comes. out, and the warring couple know exactly what sort of so's-and-so's their husband and wives think they are, and how little esteem they have for each other's opinions and manners.

And, if further argument were needed to show the manifold advantages of husbands and wives getting in each other's" hair, it is contended thai it is safer for them to bawl each other out than it is their customers or clients. Certainly no one can deny that the married couples who are always fighting and. arguing with each other do it because they enjoy it. There is some innate cruelty in their natures that makes them get a kick out of wounding and humiliating the partners of their bosoms, else they would not do it No husband and wife can live together for even a month without the world for them to live in harmony with their mates if they would only step warily aro'und their keep-ofl'-the-grass signs, say soothing instead of insulting things, and handle^ each bther. with gloves.
