The judgment ended an anti-trust suit in which the government charged that the late Ivar Kreuger, colorful Swedish "match king." inspired the cartel and that the match trust successfully suppressed the manufacture of the so-called "everlasting match," described as a match that may be =truct several thousand times before it is consumed. The defendants — nine companies and five individuals —-consented to the judgment, under which they were forbidden to divide the world market in matches, restrict production or fix the prices of matches, match machinery and match chemicals.

Batoon Was Surrendered 4 Years Ago By JOHN R.

The words came from Voice of Freedom," the radio on still embattled Corregidor. They were written by Capt. Salvador P. Lopez, former executive officer on Gen. Jonathan Wainwright's staff. Lopez now is back at his old job with the Manila Post —whose pages recently heralded the death before an American firing squad of Lt. Gen.

Whethe e lir r e some two or whether however it is, a sod or grass, oc of disability mancnt. cure, if certain produces a pcr- ' ' , , - cupies a niche peculiar to herself. She is credited with characteristics that set her apart from the other members of her sex and that make her comings and her goings of especial Interest to her friends and neighbors. For one thing, :osing her husband lops from ten to 15 years off a woman's age. We wouldn't think of speaking of a married woman in her forties -as a girl, but lot her husband die and she im- mediatelv becomes a young widow. Also, widows are supposed to possess occult powers of fascination that no man can resist. "Samivel, Samivcl, my son bevare of of vi- d'M«'s." counseled the asute Mr. Woller. and certainly it is *i fact that many a woman finds it easier to marry a second time than she rlirl the first. WIDOW'S LOT NOT ALWAYS GAY Likewise, it is a matter of common belief that every widow is husbnnd-hunling and that she would marrv .nny man who asked her. though it is notoriously true that every woman whose husband left her a nice little wad of insurance money is pursued by men who are looking for widows with comfortable homes in which they can hang their hats and sit down on the do- nolhir" stool for the balance of their lives. But the widow's life is not always gay and glamorous. If she is left with a houseful of children and no money, she is one of Ihe mosl piteous figures in Ihe world. If she has had a happy marriages wilh a man she loved, he lakes her sunshine into the grave with him, and she does not know what to do with herself when he is gone. And there are so many of these widows with plenty of money lhat will not buy Ihem happiness; loo old for love or remarriage; too wise to go to live with their married children and be an unwanted guest in their homes, yet who have in all probability many years to live. And one of them asks me if I will chart for her some plan by which she can be a good widow as she was a good life. No one can give another person a formula for living, but to every widpw I would say: Make an ironbound resolution never to go to live with your children ,and stick to it. Don't even visit them too often. Thai way you will always be loved by your family inslead of being regarded by Ihem as a posl. Preserve your independence. Be yourself inslead of-Sam's or Jane's molhor. Don't ever turn over all of your property to your children. Between Mother who has gifts to give and Mother who is dependent, there is a great gulf fixed. Don't live alone. You are bound to get cranky if you do. With your husband gone you need companionship. Find it in some good family hotel or boarding house where you will be surrounded by cheerful, pleasant people. Belong to clubs. Take a part in church work and public movements. Keep busy. Keep interested. Don't let the milk of human kindness in you turn, to clabber. Solitary women have to make their happiness, but they can do it if they will.

' "She said that Jock had been in a smash-up —that he was drunk —and that the girl with him had been killed." "Poor Jock," Ann said softly. "Poor girl," Colin corrected her, rather sharply. Then he remembered his decision. "Ann— last—night— Ann, how did you know something had happened to Jock? Was it a dream, or what?" Ann shook her head. "It wasn't a dream. It was— rather awful. I don't know how I know, but 1 knew he was in dreadful trouble, and—" "That tears it," Colin said abruptly . He got to his feet and. stood looking down al her. "I haven't any right to you, Ann—not when you're so closely bound to Jock as that. I wouldn't lei myself believe it, but— well, this sort of forces bcliei'." Ann looked at him incredu- ously.

'"Just a little annoyed is all," she assured him, deliberately misunderstanding. '''I'll tell you now —thought I was too hurt yesterday— that it burned me up plenty that you should let Millicent read your manuscript and not let me so much as sniff -at it. She was telling me about your new novel yesterday —and naturally I couldn't admit to her thai I hadn't so much as glimpsed it, when she practically knew it by heart. But why did you do it, Colin Why?" "Look, Ann," Colin said urgently, "would you mind if we get things straightened out one al a lime?" "No. I wouldn't mind." "Firsl—when I offered you your freedom, it was an offer born of a sleepless night and the conviction that, it was what you wanted. Do you?" "I've answered that. No" Colin swallowed hard, and was silent for a few moments, lest his voice betray his emotion. It was steady by the time he continued, "Do you really want a baby now?" "Of course, Colin. I made up my mind to that months ago— when I was in the hospital. One of my first conscious thoughts." "Was the reason you were so nasty to me yesterday lhat you thought I'd been seeing and consulting Millicent ab6ut my book behind your back?" "Ann, Ann, and I thought you trusted me! Of course I haven't— Yesterday, while I was away Millicent called. Mrs. Larsen was here cleaning ,and she knew Millicent. of course— she showed her into the library lo wait for me Millicent— well, I guess she was looking for something in the desk, and she found the carbon copy of my book manuscript, and had read it before I returned." There was a little silence, and then Colin went on, with a chuckle, "Millicent is honest, anyway. She told me that you must be a much bet- ler wife than she had been— because at long last I seemed to have Churchill's Jap Warning Given in '41 Washington, April 9 —(/P)— Winston Churchill pressed Ihe lale President Roosevell as early as February, 1941, lo "inslill in Japan anxiely" that a move toward Singapore would mean war with the United Stales. This was disclosed today as the Senate-House committee investigating Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor was given new documents gathered from State Deparlmenl and While House files. Selh Richardson, committee counsel, put them into the record when the committee reopened its hearings. One document was a message from the then British prime minister to Mr. Roosevelt dated Feb. 15, 1941, expressing concern that the Japanese mean to make war on us, or to do something which would compel us to make war on them, during the next :Cew weeks or months." "There are some,' ' Churchill added, "who consider that in Japan's present mood she would have no hesitation to entertain an attempt to make war against both your country and mine. Although H is mv personal belief that the odds are definitely against such an event, one cannot tell. "Whatever you are able to do to instill in Japan anxiety as to a double war may succeed in averting this danger. Nevertheless should we alone be attacked it would be difficult to overstate the grave character of the consequences." Five" days later another message came from Churchill which said: 'Have received better news <-on- cernmg Japan. It seems Jap foreign minister is shortly go.ug xo Moscow, Berlin and Home for thc purpose of covering the failure of action against us. The fear of ihe U.

The more these fears can be aroused the better." Presumably, the bill to which he referred was the Lend-Lease act, enacted in the spring of 1941. Included among the documents was an appraisal of the situation by the British chiefs of staff whn suggested that American naval forces be sent lo Singapore. Lord Halifax, the British ambassador delivered it to the Stale Department on Feb. 11 with a note say"I need not emphasize how greatly my government hope that the Uniled States government will feel able to take some effective action in the very near future to deter the Japanese." .u ot £ er documents disclosed that the British were consulted about and encouraged, movement of some Pacific fleet units to the At- lanllc. The committee has heard contentions that transfer of those units made the Pacific -Jleet weaker than Japan's naval forces. —o—— : — Marion Wasson Is Elected Official of Gas Company Fayetteville, April 9 —(/P)— Marion Wasson, former acting business manager of the University of Arkansas and ionn;-r state bank commissioner, has been elected vice president of Ihe Arkansas western Gas Company, Prp=ident u L.

(To Be Continued) Meat Black Market Out of Control Washington, April 9 —- (/P)—Representatives of major meat packers asserted today thc black market in meat is out of control, the price system in the industry has broken down, and the "only remedy" is removal of price controls.

Senator Connally <D-Tcx> asked - lardcnbergh whether he thought "lho consumers would yel a fair i shake" if Congress removed subsidies and abolished price control industrv.

Of these, he said only 12,168 had filed claims for subsidy payments up to last February. "Apparently 14,500 slaughterers were able to survive wilhoul applying for subsidies even though thc subsidy averages about $22.50 per head on cattle and $4.25 on hogs," he said. "The conclusion is obvious." Hardenbergh said all it look to become a black market slaughterer was "a tree, a rope, a knife and a truck." He declared that such slaughterers wasted hides, bones, items would save. "Certainly," he said, "the farmer currently is receiving lilile of Ihc tremendous black market profit represented by the $1,250,000,000 overcharge paid for meat by consumers."
