f: HOP! S TAR/ M 0 P I, ARKANSAS Russia Not Bluffing, Thinks Mackenzie, But He Doesn't 1 Believe She Seeks New Wai 1 " By .DeVVhr,t IWacKENZIE " AP Foreign Affairs' Analyst , One of the first questions flung t .a.t me,.after my arrival home from touring Europe was: "Are the Russians bluffing?" No\v there's a nice meaty query for you^afKl,ag -uncomfortable to ha t ndle_as.-anjjn.sxploded block-bus- WT B lu Ike heart tifca .city.,Still, the block-otisters haVe'to be dealt with as a,matter of safety, and this Russian question strikes me as falling in about the same category. <v»There has been far too much hesitancy in torching matters of tflis~ sort, for fear of making "trwble If the Big Three — Russia, ""America and Britain — had clear- 1 ed'""lip a blinch of question's for one another .long ago, the inteina- :tfoaal situation would be a lot ^easier right now. Anyway, the an- "JSWei; .to my ftiend's inquiry as I ".seeiMahd I've studied it from all Angles) is this: 'Bussia isn't bluffing. She has laid put a- plan of the zone of in- tjluence-Which she • considers necessary for her protection and Well i being, ;both in Europe and in Asia. - Much, ^f not all. of this program t has been made known to the world at large. She intends to keep on driving fpr that, and naturally will ' contimie to take advantage of every opening given by the other powers. That's'not bluff, although shrewd tactical maneuvering and eV6rlast- ing persistence are involved. HaweveiV'— and this is the point my questioner had in mirvrt — ha.ve found no .reason to believe that Moscow would permit the Soviet program to^create a .situation which might lead to another world conflict. The idea that the Soviet Union would do that just doesn't-'make horse sense. All other considerations aside, neither Russia nor any other power is prepared to embark on a further global conflict now. To be sure there are numerous situations which we should like Moscow to explain. But whaTUncie Sam and John Bull can't afford to overlook is that Moscow has just as many questions which it • would like cleared up by the Western Allies. These unanswered questions are certain breeders of suspicions, and until the Big Three table all their cards those suspicion^ will exist and .endanger peace. Of course it would be naive to think that all .suspicions -co'did be removed as easily as the necessity for thpir removal can be S.trt down here.-Still it shouldn't be &8'-difficult. FROM THE LETTER OF A PROMINENT PROSECUTING ATTORNEY: "Beer is legally *old in ihree of the five counties In my Judicial District, the other two counties have voted out legal sales. It has been my privilege to work directly with your Committee in its enforcement program, and I know from actual case records that your organization has materially assisted the enforcement officers of these three counties by helping to eliminate practically all undesirable retail outlets.' In the two counties which have voted out legal sales we have a serious problem of enforcement, because the ballot alona does not make them dry. The supervision over licensed outlets is easier for enforcement officers than the responsibility of enforcing prohibition. Officers all over my district highly appreciate your valuable assistance." The vigilance of the Foundation in conducting -the Regulation Program -assures your Community ,of reputable beer retailers, who sell beer in wholesome surroundings and who .coopera te_ with law-enforcement officers.

J., 24 hours after Promoter Mike Jacobs had fixed a top price of $100 for ringside seats, the highest ever charged officially for a fight. This is 300 percent more than the' 25 top for the first Louis-Conn shindig at the Polo Grounds in 1941 and 100 per cent more than the $50 top charged for Tex Rickard's famous fights involving Jack Dempsey in the "golden twenties" et'a. Announcement of the $100 tariff, at which Jacobs previously had hinted, plus a scale of $50, -$30, $20 and $10 for less advantageous seats in the 100,000-capacity stadium, assured a record gross gate of $3,000,000 or beter for the long anticipated return go. The present gate record is the $2,658,660 paid by 104,943 spectators for the second Dempsey-Gene Tunney scrap in .Chicago .in September, 1927, when the still debated "long count" occurred. ,Rickard charged an official $40 top for this one, but unofficially was reported to have sold the first three ringside rows at $100 a seat. Conn, knocked out in the 13th round in his first chance at the title, will merely strike a few poses for newspaper photographers ..whferi he arrives at Greenwod' Lakes today.

Craig, research director of the American retailers federation. . "This is a stiff increase, but it is. not >too high a price to pay for the liberation," Craig asserted in an address prepared for the federation's annual meeting. '"It.is not so high as the increase we would be sure to get if we were to drive the OPA off the clit't, and it-is not so high as the increase we are destined to get if we keep on restricting production." Craig said the retailers federation <is "much impressed" by recent price ceiling increases intended to break bottlenecks in the output qf scarce goods. But he added that the merchants want assurance 4hat these price boosts do not merely reflect a "shotgun conversion" of OPA caused by the approaching congressional vole on a one-year extension of that agency's life. .,., . "We ask the Congress to put it in black and white and to assure the co.untr-y that the new policy will be continued," Craig went on. "Mc-st retailers want them to maintain control of prices until it is safer to drop them than it is now.'But they want Congress to amend the organic law under which'OPA operates, x x x The amendments retailers want are the ones Which will remove obstacles to. production wherever and whenever those obstacles stem from ceiling prices." The 'retailers' group represents some 500,000 large and small stores and chains. • -. / 0 _ Blevins Graders Visit Business Plants of Hope Students of the fourth, fifth and sixth grades of the Blevins schools paid Hope a visit today.

By DOUGLAS UOVELAE Hilo, Hawaii, April 2 — W)—Hilo's seismic dentil toll mighl have been in the thousands had it struck two or three hours later than it did. The swells engulfed Hilo's waterfront business district while the city slowly was waking to life yesterday. A little later, employes and shoppers would have thronged warehouses and stores in the ravished area. The warning given b ylhe Iwo smaller of Hilo's three waves saved hundreds, who had lime to flee from the waterfront. This is how the waves struck: The first inundated 50 feet along the waterfront — much of it park and warehouse areas. Cries of warning sounded and peopled boiled into the streets in a mad rush for higher ground. A few merchants remained to tidy their stores, which were barely touched by Ihe walcr. Ten minutes later, n second, larger wave struck, driving IOC yards deeper into the city, smashing frailer buildings and strewing mud, coral and debris through stores. Volunteers poured into the area, routing laggards. A few minutes later the third wave struck — a towering, angry 20-foot wall of water rushing in from the north at incredible speed. It smashed buildings to smith- reens as it coiled and whiplashed two blocks deep into the city in a wave of destruction. William Hana, who rcsuced his mother and two other women from Ihe Hana hotel, described the fury: "We heard the water crash into buildings. Screams of people, the crunching of wod and the shattering of glass filled the air. "Our hotel was shaking so fiercely we couldn't move .There .vere about 25 women and children inside. Then the waters receded and men staretd helping the women and children out. Everyone in :hc hotel was saved, but we found two children underneath—dead. Today, tearful, grim-faced families wandered about this once beautiful city of 25,000, searching for their missing. Kamehamena, a street of ware-' houses, cheap frame hotels and little shops, was reduced to a tangled, muddied, jumbled mass of wreckage. Entire buildings were missing; the fate of their occupants unknown. Streets were blocked by rubble that once was buildings. Power- ines were down. Railroad (narrow guage) tracks were twisted like confetti. A huge steel bridge was washed out. Scores of small craft were shattered. Out in the harbor, the ocean was pouring through the breakwater that cost several million dollars t juild. i'rom the air, the waterfront looked as if the ocean had picked up buildings, swept them out to sea, then dashed them back on land again like thousands of matches. The waves played gruesome nous coal states showed the following numbers of miners affected.

In a small town about the only thing she could do was to lake in washing, and that is what she did do. Sometimes five and six washings a day by hand. "Many mornings I have had the ice freeze on my gloves while I drew bucket .after bucket of water lo fill the lubs. Some days we ale slale bread and walcr. Some days beans and potatoes because Ihey were cheaper than anything else. The authorities tried to lake us away from my mother and put us in a home, but she fought until they lei her keep us.

Wilhoul us young- slers she would nol have had Ihe bravery lo face life, and wilhoul God she wouldn't have had the faith and slrenglh she needed lo carry on. Now she has a nice home and prelly furniture. She wears satin and lace undies instead of sugar bags. She takes trips when she pleases. She has life soft and easy instead of hard and, best of all, she sees her children well- off and respected.

She felt a quick twinge of anger at Jock for disturbing her mental picture of herself. No one ever j made a pass—verbal or physical— at Connie. And not because Connie wasn't attractive, either. But | Connie w;is so definitely Davey's. Connie and Davey and Betsey — there were a definite entity. Perhaps it was Betsey that made the difference. Ann decided that her child would put her in the same sacrosanct class as Connie's. And, •abruptly, she decided to tell Jock •—though it gave her an ' uneasy feeling that it was a bit rough on i Colin that Jock should know Of his child before he did. "I'm go-. j ing to have a baby, Jock/' Ann I said quickly. Jock jumped at the sldlemcnt, coming without preamble put qf a long silence, but quickly regained his composure. "How nice,,',' he said politely. "That is, I'm as... you want one," "Naturally," Ann said dri'ly. Jock thrust a cigaret into his mouth, and snapped his 'lighter. It didn't work, which mil's £ have been .annoying, Ann thought — poor Jock, trying to be nonchalant. She handed him the paper of matches she was carrying. He lit his cigaret, and put the matches in his pocket. "That sort of disestablishes any chum I might have had on you, doesn't it, Ann?" he said slowly.

There was a,, little silence, before he added' ''grudgingly, "Sorry, I'm nol .at rjvy best. Perhaps I'd better leave.' "I'll walk back lo the... house wilh you, and give you lea 'before you start back," Ann volunteered. "You clon'l have a gobd sliff drink, around, do you?" ',' "I mighl even manage that," Ann said. ' She made, lea, but Jock ignored it and drank three large highballs in quick succession. Then he got up. "Well — good luck to you, kid! 1 may not like this life you're making for yourself, but I've gol lo admire your nerve." Ann ignored thai. "Say hello lo Nina for me," she murmured. "Do you think I'm nulsV" Jock asked rudely. He added, "Congratulate Colin for mo." Ann repeated his retort, but nol aloud. "Goodby, Jock," she said. "You know," he said slowly, "I think it is." Without another word he left. Ana was still silling beside Ihe tea table when Susie came home from school. II was some days laler and lo Ann' annoyance it. had started lo rain a lillle as she approached the house on her return from the posl office. She dumped Ihe mail on Colin's desk in the library, and tossed a couple of alder logs on the fire, before going to remove her coal and hat. She looked around the living room, decided, with unhousewifoly taste, thai an such a dark day it was sheer waste to time to dust, then went to her room to exchange her tweed suit and sturdy walking shoes for a knit rose chenille house coal and slippers. She surveyed herself approvingly in the mirror. The coat had short "push-up" sleeves, a slim waist, and a long, flowing skirl. Too long, she observed ruefully', as she stumbled over ii laking her i'irsl slep. She curled up in a chair in front of the fire, and lit u cigaret before glancing through llj)o. mail. Lord Peter Wimsey came and nudged at her knee with his j mu/y.le. She palled him absently. "Goud ol' Peter — are you a bit bored wilh the boss away, loo?" He yawned in her face, and Ann laughed and followed his example. "Don't you wish something exciting would happen,'' 1 ;Pc1er- Whifl'les?" she said, reflecting that she really might to make up her mind what she was going to call him, and stick to it. ' • Suddenly she heard a scream, footsteps on the basement slairs, and Ihe kitchen door burst open. Helga flushed and frkjHtcned. came running in. "Oh, Mis' Drake, my husband — lie's goin' for me wilh a knife — " / . "Nonsense, Helga," Ann said, • setting to her feet. "Stay-there, Peler — " She took Hclga's arm and guided her out to the kitchen. "Really, Helga," she admonished Cupyriultl Mumie-Smilli-Co. •. Distribute by NEA SERVICE. ING her, a little impatiently, "you've been seeing too many movies. People don't do such things, really—" "Mis' Drake, you don't know my Pete—" Hclga expostulated. "Where is he, Hclga?" The kitchen was empty, the basement door open as Hclga had left it in her flight. "Where is he, Helga?" The kitchen was empty, the bascnient door open as Hclga had left it in her flight. "He's out back — I don't think he'd come in here— oh, Mis' lirakc, be careful—" Ann opened the door that led to the back porch, and encountered Pete Carpello, small and swarthy, an insignificant person lo frighten big blond Helga. "What is this nonsense, Pete?" Ann demanded sternly. . His eyes, clouded with liquor, avoided hers. "S-s-so!" he hissed ijt Helga ,and advanced threateningly. Ann backed up—not be- cau,se she was frightened; but because she didn't want him to touch her, as he might in passing through the door. Helga cowered behind Ann, who felt curiously unconvinced by the whole scene. It was very bad melodrama, and "cut" before it went any further. And then suddenly everything happened at once. A knife was clutched in Pete's hand, -and his face was conlorlcd with fury. Ann stepped forward and opened her mouth to protest, and a rough hand knocked her out of the way. She staggered back, tripped over the skirt of her house coat, and as she fell, she remembered, sick- oningly, that the basement flooi jled man with a strong woman at lis side can go a long way. He can do anything thai docs not require actual physical vigor. Not even blindness is an insuperable umdicap. "And if the wife has any stamina, she can be a money-maker also, [or there is just as much demand woman's work as there is for man's. The price of a good cook is above rubies. A home laundress is an asset in any communily. The demand for home-baked bread anc pies and cakes is never-ending Women who have to work outside of their homes are eternally searching for day nurseries in which to leave their children. Any wo man who is clever with a needle can make a good living as a dress maker. And even Grannies who are baby-sillers can earn Iheir boarc and keep. There are a Ihousaric things that women can do that will bring in money, and that Ihey can do in Iheir own homes while looking after their own children. "I speak from experience, for I've tried doing the most of them. Being poor has made me very rich. I can turn my hand to almost any sort of work. So I urge the women who have been left widows with children, or who have invalided husbands, not lo give up, not to part with their children, not to become dependent on others, but to fight it out, shoulder to shoulder, with their husbands, if they still have them, or alone, if their men have been taken from them. They can do it if they have faith and courage and stamina." (Bell Syndicate, Inc.)
