Pc§e Two HOPE S T AH, HOPE, ARKANSAS France Takes Drastic Steps to Curb Prostitution, Evil Shadow Following Every War Bv DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Tne JTrencn constituent assembly has made the sensational move of approving a bill for the suppression of prostitution in metropolitan France, thus striking a heavy blow at one of the forces most destructive 1 to the moral fibre of chaotic EUVope, for the old world is experiencing a plague of sexual immorality and its attendant disease which far exceeds anything it ever has known before. Immorality is a- by-product of every war. but the Hitlerian conflict differed from others in that the evil Nazi teachings encouraged it both at home ana abroad. The Nazi fuehrer taught German girls that it was a patriotic duty t'o the fatherland to have illegitimate children to provide more soldiers. And in some conquered countries the Nazis conducted a regular campaign ot interbreeding, so as to introduce s German blood. It wa's all as coldly calculated as Thai."

At the time the Soviet-Chinese treaty was negotiated, he said, China knew the general sense of the Yalta agreement in which the late President Roosevelt agreed to persuade China to grant Russia widespread concessions in Manchuria and to recognize the independence of Soviet outer Mongolia. Maj. Gen. Patrick Hurley came to Chungking shortly after Mr. Roosevelt's death and informed China in a general way what had been decided at Yalta regarding Manchuria, Chiang said. The generalissimo said that ihe present American foreign policy leaves little to be desired. He said the outlook for peace was excellent if the United States maintains its present firm support of the U.

The generalissimo said he would like to visit the United States for at least one month after the new coalition government is organized. He denied reports that China had asked Russia to delay the withdrawal of Russian troops from Manchurian cities to gain time for Chinese government troops to ar-> rive and enter the cities at the moment the Russians departed, thus preventing Chinese Communists from gaining control of the cities. GO^Regulars Win Illinois Primary Test Chicago, April 10 — (UP) — Party organization candidates, including the 80-year-old dean of the House of Representatives and a young naval lieutenant, were the victors today in the first of the nation's post-war primary elertions. In the light voting which followed a dispirited campaign in" yesterday's Illinois primary election, all 25 incumbent congressmen seeking re-election won nominations for another term, ^ifteen were Republicans andf 10 were Democrats. Rep. Adolph J. Sabath, 80, apparently weathered determined opposition in his district to win the Democratic nomination for a 21st term in the House. He is chairman of the House Rules Committee. The biggest vote getter on the Republican ticket was Navy Lt William G. Stratton. 32. who still is on Okinawa. Stratlon ea»(ly won the nomination for congressman- at-large. In the November election he will face the incumbent Democrat, Mrs. Emily Taft Douglas, who was unopposed in the primary. Sabath polled 4,193 votes to his opponent's 1.726, with approximately one-half of the districts precincts uncounted. Stratton rolled up 286,977 votes nearly four times the combined total of his three opponents, in 5 093 of the state's 9,438 precincts. ' Stratton, endorsed by Gov Dwight H. Green and the Republican organization, was defeated by I the same group in 1944 when he j ran for secretary of state. He was elected cbngressman-at-large when he was 26, and two years later he [was elected as state treasurer. I Limited to one term of office by the state constitution, he sought election as secretary of state but without party .endorsement, and lost. In the only other statewide contest, a longtime state political veteran, Richard Yates Rowe, won the Republican nomination for state treasurer, defeating two other contenders, including Stephen A Day, insurgent Republican and former congressman-at-large. o Women Vote Continued from Page One be>ieve that obedience is a prime virtue. However, it struck- rnp lr the polling places I visited in Tokyo all day that the women voters seemed rather an independent lot. Most of them went in by themselves or with other women. With babies on their backs and dressed in their fanciest kimonoes they went at the business of voting as if they had done it all of their lives. (Associated Press staffers in Tokyo reported that several women interviewed said that although they had discussed politics with their husbands, they were'not influenced by them and did not know how the male member of the family was voting.) All day the women streamed through polling places and who could tell whether papa's ideas were carried out? probably papa got the shock of his life when the boys were told not to come home to lunch because mama was RO- ing out to vote. All classes and ages of women voted: old ladies, so bent they hardly could walk, shy young mothers, and painted geishas and their madams. At the polling place for the largest geisha district in lokyo, the records show the geisha girls turned out early and their vote was almost 100 percent I wondered if these women realized what a step they had taken upward from medievalism. o — County Road Continued from Page One itures for paupers and other charities financed by county governments. The cost of earing for the indigent in 1932 was $389,093, and by 1944 the part paid by counties had dropped to $139,523. It is in this field, however, that the state and federal governments have assumed greater responsibility than ever before. "The past few years," the report by the Council recites, "have witnessed a trend toward state centralization and it is up to counties to improve their services if this trend is to be arrested. "Many Araknsas counties are not large enough to perform the required governmental services. . . One criticism directed toward county governments is that all counties large and small, have practically the same officers and organization. Another crictisim frequently directed toward county government is the present operation of the fee system. Effeciivp budgetary control requires that all money received by an officer be paid directly into the county treasury and be disbursed under authority ot the County Court or some other official."

J., April 10 — (IP)— A new "elastic nylon" was described today to the American Chemical Society — but don't rush girls, it's still in the laboratory stage. A research team of the Pupont Co. of Buffalo, N. Y., reported that new-type nylon fibres had been produced, on an experimental scale, with "elastic properties approaching those of rubber." They said one form of the new fibre has an elasticity of 95 to 99 per cent whereas nylon yarn of the type now us»d in hosiery "has an elongation of only 15 to 25 per cent." 8 Die as Fire Razes Boston j Apartment Bostpn April 10 —OP)— Eight persons, including a mother, father *and three small children, perished and five others were injured today in an early-morning fire that swept a four-story brick Bnck Bay apartment house and brought swift investigation by fire and police officials. The investigation included two other fires which started within a ten-block radius while . firemen were battling the flames in the aartments in Belvedere St., where the deaths occurred. The police listed .the dead as- Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Wnssell and their children, Suzanne, 5; Linda, 3, and Peter, 2, Napoleon La Pete, and his sister, Verna, and patrolman Robert Mahar, 45. Suzanne Mahoney, 23, was injured critically. The bodies of three members of the Wassell. family were huddled near a window in their upper floor apartment. The others were sprawled in other parts of their home. Thirty-three other tenants fled from the building in which the fire was burning fiercely when the first fire aparatus arrived. Other families left their homes in an adjacent building, but a firewall prevented spread of the blaze. The fire department, which sent members of its Arson squad into action, listed the damage at $10,000. Police reported that Mahar and Miss Mahoney leaped from the building when trapped by the spreading fire. Police and state fire marshal's office Arson experts joined fire department .investigators in their inquiry, which was broadened to include three other fires in the Back Bay area last night and today. : o Pasquel Says Dodgers Paid Through Nose Mexico City, Aprfl 10—(#>)—Mexican League President Jorge Pasquel, who claims he is freeing U. S. ball players from the bondage of "starvation salaries," says the Brooklyn Dodgers promised Catcher Mickey Owen plenty of pesos to lure him back into organized baseball. Brooklyn President Branch Rickey "promised Owen a contract for three years at $20,000 annually plus all expenses and taxes," Pasquel declared in a statement late last night. "It is curious to note that my brother Alfonso was present in the telephone conversation that Owen had with Senor Rickey Monday night," he said, adding "never before would .it have occurred to this senor to pay his players what they justly are worth." Last week, when Owen first announced that he was going to play in Pasquel's loop, he said that he had agreed to a five-year contract for an undisclosed salary plus a $12,500 cash bonus for signing the document. The Dodgers were believed to have paid the backstop between $12,500 and $15,000 a year before he entered the navy in 1945. The dapper czar of the Mexican League reiterated that he will sue Owen, whom he said signed a contract in St. Louis to play here for five years, and Vernon Stephens, tho hard-hitting St. Louis Browns shortstop who departed Mexico suddenly after playing two games. Pasquel said he was deeply hurt over Stephens' bolt. The intielder was a guest at the millionaire's palatial home and the Mexican said that Stephens "never before in his life had lived as he lived in Mexico during the days that he was here. "Stephens said he didn't like Mexico's old ball parks," Pasquel went on. "Well, very soon we shall have some of the best in the world. But old ones filled with real fans are preferable to the likewise old American parks holding 50,000 spectators and often attended by scarcely 4,000 or 5,000." Pasquel said he couldn't understand how Owen and Stephens were accepted back into organized baseball while a small-salaried minor league umpire was put on the "black list," for officiating here. "Take the case of Umpire Munari (Harry Munari, former Appalachian and interstate league arbiter). This senor is working in the Mexican League. He was receiving $200 monthly in the United States, not enough to live on in his country. Here he is paid a much higher salary, and because he came here, he has been placed on the black list in his country. "Why wasn't the same thing done with Stephens?" he asked, Q . : New Probe of Pearl Harbor Predicted By JOHN L. CUTTER Washington, April 10 — (UP) •— Sen. Owen Brewster, R., Me., predicted today there will be another congressional investigation of {he Pearl Harbor disaster. Brewster and Sen. Homer Ferguson, R., Mieh., agreed that the present 10-man joint committee of which they are members "will never get all the facts." The com- mitee is composed of six Democrats and four Republicans. "It now has become clear that the American people cannot hope to get the whole story of Pearl Harbor until we have a Republican Congress," Brewster told reporters. "I have given up trying to but my head against a stone wall." He has steadfastly protested against rulings which prevent individual committee members x'rom nvesligating government files and which allow witnesses to decide what material they have is pertinent to the inquiry. Brewster and Ferguson complained because they didn't know until yesterday that the late President Koosevelt told the Australian minister in Washington of certain steps planned in pie-Pearl Harbor negotiations with Japan but didn't .ell his army and navy chiefs. I State Needs 62 Millions for Roads Little Rock, April 10 — (P)— Arkansas will have to spend $02,200,000 within the next ten years to take care of the present highway system. This was disclosed yesterday at a meeting of Governor Lancy's highway advisory committee. Estimates from the highway commission today were that the state roughly would need 50 per cent more revenue thnn it now receives to meet adequate maintenance costs. During the period from April 1, 1945, to April 1946, all highway revenues, including the amount that must be used to retire the old indebtedness, amounted to $17,560,000. These figures are on n month to month basis, but at current calendar year rates the annual collection is about $16.000,000 a year, of which $3,075,000 is allotod for maintenance and $2,500,000 for both repair and construction. Estimates on how much revenue will accrue during the next ten years to apply against the needed cost are not available. The highway department said that the study of road needs had not progressed far enough to give an adequate estimate over the ten-year period. W. H. Sadler, chairman of the highway commission, said the figure does not include new construction, repair of highway shoulders or consideration of county roads. Sadler said $22,500,000 must be spent on maintenance cost in the first five year period and $29,600,000 in the second five-year period. The advisory committee voted to meet here again May 7 for its third session and deferred action on proposals that it recommend a special legislative session to take action on the highway problem. The four subcommittees— county roads, ways and means, main line highways and judiciary — made reports to the group and voted to continue their deliberations between now and the next meeting Among proposals to obtain revenue were a "five dollar' slicker tax" for all automobiles; increased gasoline tax; privilege tax on "all businesses in the county" for highway purposes; highway use tax. - o Ailing Crax Give League New Hope By the Associated Press Atlanta's Crackers, defending champions and favorites in the Southern Association, have extended unexpected encouragement to the rest of the loop as all teams turn an eye toward the season opening Friday. The Crackers aparently be- seiged with pre-season jitters, made six errors last night and otherwise behaved unlike champions to drop their fifth straight exhibition game, The 7-5 decision was the second straight loss to the Fort Benning. Ga., infantry school. All seven of the soldiers' runs were unearned. Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans took their second straight victory over the Columbus Redbirds, 3-1. Columbus led in hits 11 to 6,, but the Redbirds lost the game because they also led in errors, 3-0. A little nervousness also seemed to plague Montgomery of the Southeastern League as the Rebels lost to Chattanooga, 11-2. Montgomery made seven errors, the Lookouts none. At Mobile, the Rochester Red Wings of the International League Slurged for 18 hits and took a 16-2 victory over the Mobile Bears. The Bears contributed to the widespread misbehavior with fiv\- errors. At Little Rock, pre-season deals brought the Cuban southpaw, Julio Acosta, and outfielder William Burgo, to the Travelers. Both men are from Milwaukee of the American Association. Last night's scheduled exhibition with Minneapolis was rained out. The memphis Chicks and the Snreveport Sports, rained out for two previous days, were set to try again today. Cost of Collecting Stale's Share at Oaklawn Declines Little Rock, April 10 — (UP)— The cost of collecting the state's share of the money bet at Oaklawn track dropped from about twp cents on the dollar in 1945, to one-half a cent during the spring meet just closed at Hot Springs. State Revenue Commissioner Otho A. Cook, who also is secretary of the state racing commission, said yesterday that the state spent $3,022 to collect its $591,538 during the spring meet. Last year the state spent $7,209 to collect Market Report ® !. _ ST.

Russia Expresses Displeasure With Japanese Election Moscow, April 10 — W)—The Soviet government newspaper Izvestia, in a dispatch from Tokyo, declared today that the Japanese elections were being held with "unjustified speed" and that the average Japanese was but little interested .

"It will not be surprising under these circumstances," the dispatch added, "if the elections are won by the reactionary forces — those forces aiming at reestablishing the former order and secretly retaining hopes of revenge for the defeat ot Japan." o : Ancient Phoenicians, a sea-going people, spread their alphabet to all the lands bordering ua we Mediterranean. the Pearl Harbor attack.

A hearing probably will be held at Stuttgart, Ark., about 'May 2 on the new proposal which will be considered as a result of a recommendation of the chief of army engineers that navigation below Little Rock should follow the course of the Arkansas river to its mouth through Pine Bluff, -rather than the Clarendon canal-White river cut-off route. A special report on the navigation channel below Little Rock was completed and forwarded to the director of the budget this week for inclusion-in a comprehensive plan for Arkansas river development. After approved by the budget office the whole plan will be submitted to Congress. The chief engineer's report says one group advocating the canal route emphasized the value of obtaining water for irrigation of the Grand Prairie section. It claimed that $1,335,000 would be saved annually by elimination of the river's bends, shortening travel routes. Another group insisted three times as many people would be served if the river channel were followed to Pine Bluff. They said this plan would also be more beneficial from a flood control standpoint because the channel improvement would stabilize the river banks. Conclusions of the engineers were: 1. That cost of the alternate projects would be so nearly the same that factor need not be considered. 2. That "more attractive sources" for irrigation water could be found than would be offered by a canal running from the Arkansas to the White river. 3. That stabilization of the Arkansas river banks mo htc mmm kansas river banks on the one hand outwejghted the specia.1 advantages of water supply on the other. On this basis the chief engineer and the board making the special study agreed in their recommen dation that the river route be followed. One factor considered by the engineers was a difference in chemical content between waters of the Arkansas and White rivers .Evi-1 dence was offered that minerals in the Arkansas might make its water unsuitable for rice irrigation while no such objection could be found to White river water. The proposal to be considered at the projected Stuttgart hearing would call for a canal leaving the White river, passing through the Grand Prairie area and then possibly returning, to the White river lower on its course. Such a canal, say its proponents would provide the right kind of water for irrigation and also assist in White river flood control by furnishing an additional channel.

"After the joint communique and agreement between Russia and Iran," said Firouz, "the Persian government did not consider it necessary to send Ala further instructions. We received no official statement regarding Ala's letter except what we heard on the radio broadcasts."

O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service A cyst of nil eyelid (chain/ion) is an enlargement of a small gland which follows stoppage of its duel. It is more common in adults than in children, and it is unusally confused with a stye. A chalaxlon requires weeks or months to develop, and there arc i(.-w symptoms until it reaches the approximate size of a pen. Then »i hard .swelling, over which tho skin moves freely, may be detected. The patient may think it is a stye, but cannot account for the absence of inflammation. Cysts rarely disappear, and removal is recommended, for if allowed to remain they may become secondarily infected, a-nd irritate llic eyebiill.

An incision is made over the cyst, the contents are removed -and the walls arc curetted and cautoriod. The eye may , be disfigured for a few days, but mLl | healing quickly follows. Other cysts may develop later. Styes tend t'o occur in all 1 ages, but are more common in young persons. The infection is caused by the entrance of germs from the edge of the lid into one of the hair sqcs. Pain, tenderness, and swelling develop, .and a yellowish point (a boil) forms on the surface. In its early stages, a stye is treated with cold compresses. As a rule this is unsuccessful, so hot <:e,mptesses are next applied, to 1 hasten the softening of the infected tissues. As sobn as tho stye points, it. should be opened through an incision. Although a cha'lazipn and'ii sjlye have many- features in common, they are not related, and their treatment is different. STYES OFTEN MULTIPLY There is a tendency for multiple styes to form, since germs spread quickly along the lid. Although styes wore once considered an indication of poor health, their most common cause i is eye-strain. Persons who use ' their eyes cxcctfsi'velj, or those 7! who have defective" vision, may bf nibbing their Bacterra on the I. ! in I IK.:,.- |vc.:-. t -: in it lid surface arc thus rubbed in, and styes result.

We, the Women By RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer Now is the perfect time for overweight Mr. and Mrs. America to reduce—to lose that five, ten, or twenty-five pounds without which they would look better and feel more comfortable. Dieting to lose weight has always seemed a bit shameful. But that is so only because the folks who don't have to diet, who can keep their streamlined figures no matter how much rich, food they eat, invariably act so superior in the presence of a dieter. The non-eater has a way of saying smugly, whenever a man or woman on the heavy side turns down an inviting dessert: '1 cat everything I want, and I never seem to gain." That's hard to take, especially so since the dieter is enviously watching his neighbor stuff himself.

The dream —• it it was a dream—about Jock had been a pretty shattering experience, and when it 'was followed by Colin's offer of divorce, that she could counter only by the news of her pregnancy, it had brought her to a point of tension that was almost unbearable. Now, although she wondered a little about Jock — wondered how badly ho was hurt, and if he would leave the hospital only lo HO to jail on 'a manslaughter charge, that was not her first concern.
