May Crown Queen By Early Autumn LONDON, Feb. 23 if)--Plans to crown Queen Elizabeth in late August or early September--in time to lure an extra million tourist dollars this season--are being considered by the British court, the Daily Express said today. The paper said the Queen is expected to decide on a date within three weeks. If the coronation is in 1952, she will be the first British monarch in two centuries to hurry through the formal pageantry in the same year of coining to the throne. because nobody ever seems to have met one in the flesh. Go up to anyone you know who works in an office for a living and ask, "are you a junior executive?" He may flush with embarrassed pleasure or turn upon you in cold anger, but he is certain to answer, "Who. me? Of course not." Everybody has heard of junior executives, but nobody will admit he is one. That's why I don't think th"» really are any. Opinion varies as to just what a junior executive is. Some people think of him as a fine clean modest alert young man who has climbed the first rung of the ladder of success. Others see him as merely a young stuffed shirt, a petty office tyrant who tries to get ahead by aping the real executives. That's part of the mystery of the junior executive--he's anything you want to believe he is: A would- be boss in rompers, or industry's new type Horatio Alger. And nobody seems to know for sure just what his job is except to sit around and wait for.the senior executive to drop dead. The clearest picture of these new toy tycoons of the business world is given in the magazine ads. You see two fine old senior executives discussing a busy young man seated at a desk in the background One says, "I've got Bill there in mind for a top management job. He came to me and suggested, 'Let's switch to using Blotto typewriter ribbons.' Well, I did as he suggested and that's why our business tripled last month. Keep your eye on Bill." This romantic vision of the junior executive as a bright young man with simple, but overwhelmingly successful ideas is becoming more and more popular. Clothing is being designed to "give that junior Fifty Years Ago Keats Fieaa The Colwnns Of The Newt, Feb. IS, 1M2. MISS KATIE LUTZ. DAUGHTER of Mr. Lewis Lutz, of Middletown valley, had a narrow escape from drowning while crossing a footlog over Little Catoctin creek-. She became dizzy and fell into the stream, greatly swollen from the melting snow. She was carried downstream {or some distance and finally Mr. Lawson Biser was able to grab her by the hand after two other attempted rescues had failed. It took the combined efforts of Mr. Biser. William Sigler and Samuel Crone .to pull her from the water. She was carried to Mr. Biser'i home where she was revived. ,, AT THE MEETING OF THE Clover Leaf Literary Society, the debate was on the subject: "Resolved. That fire does more damage than water".

Borrow from us--anything from $50 to $100, more or less, payable back in two lifetimes." Even motor models are now "styled for the junior executive." Before long girls' finishing schools are going to join the trend and give courses such as "the junior executive's wife; her role in the community." As I see it, however, this present legend will someday become · reality. Sooner or later there will be created an actual live junior executive. And I predict he will meet disaster by trying to live up to the rosy legend. It will happen like this: He will marry an expensive Junior executive wife, make a $5.000 junior executive bank loan, and with it buy a junior executive suit and put up the 'down payments o a junior executive type house an a junior executive model car. Unable to live on a junior execu tive salary, he will gd up to hi boss and say. "Why don't we switc to Blotto typewriter ribbons? It'l triple business." Well, the boss will switch to Blotto typewriter ribbons and in three weeks the firm will be bank rupt. -because nobody really can read letters written with Blotto typewriter ribbons. The junior executive will he tossed out of his swivel chair an he will lose his wife, his home ant his car. and be forced to pawn his suit.

Kerr of Oklahoma--provided President Truman decides not to run. But Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois and Vice President Barkley still were prominent in the speculation. The fiirst big test between Kefauver and Kerr will come in Nebraska's primary April 1. Campaigning in Ohio yesterday. Kefauver suggested "Congress could really assume control of the nation s purse strings" through the aid of a budget commission working with Congress. Senator Taft of Ohio, campaigning m Vermont for the Republican Presidential nomination, said the Administration foreign policy is "as likely to produce war as peace " He said he would reorganize She State Department if elected. Vets 9 And Draftees 9 Guide WASHINGTON. Feb. 23.--When Senator Taft said the other day that he had no confidence in the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the remark occasioned a good deal of speculation as to just what the Ohio Senator had in mind. _ Did he mean that he didn't trust the military ability of the members of the joint chiefs, or was he attacking the existing system whereby the military judgment of these men may be subordinated to Administration pressure and political demands? It develops that what the Senator had in mind is related to some official testimony given in March 1950 before a Senate subcommittee on appropriations. General Bradley, as chairman of the joint chiefs, was testifying on the military budget of about $13,000,000,000 and was saying: "I tual strength of our country depends upon its industrial capacity. We must not destroy that by spending too much from year to year. So if we came here and recommend to you a $30,000,000.000 or $ budget for defense, I think we would be doing a disservice and that maybe you should get a new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff if I were the one who did that." Mr. Taft's view is that this very testimony was given to Congress less than two years- ago and that either the joint chiefs did not know what to recommend for the defense of the United States and for carrying out its obligations, or else they failed to exercise their own judgment and catered to some other judgment It is the Ohio Senator's position when I'm drafted. 7 ' j * Rat tn e joint chiefs failed to prepare for the Korean emergency. But the testimony also shows the following colloquy between Senator Wherry of Nebraska and General Bradley: "Senator Wherry: Tfiis figure of 13.1 billion dollars came down as a directive from the President, did it not?" "General Bradley: Yes. sir; because every year, as you know better than I, the President, in making up the total, over-all budget which he submits to the Congress, gives to each department the amount which they can figure on. Our planning is based on those figures." What Senator Taft is asking, in effect, is why the joint chiefs, who R- L. F., Thornton, Wash.. . would like to know if there is any way in which I could choose where I would be stationed and the job I would like when I'm drafted."! Draftees have very little to do with where they're stationed or the type of job they'll get. The services do try to place men in spots where they re best suited. · · » From Mrs. F. M-. Jackson Heights «. Y.: "My nephew, who will be 20 years old this month, is on a visit here from Switzerland. He is studying agriculture and also helping on a farm. If he takes out his first citizenship papers will he be eligible for induction into the armed services even though he is a Swiss citizen? I s he required to register? If hes eligible for reg- stration and induction, how do the rules of deferment apply?" An alien who is between 18 and !« is required to register for the draft. If he remains in the U. Sone year he is liable for rnili- lina. Democrat, made somewhat the same' point when he argued for a 70-group air force. "If we could afford it." said General Bradley, "I do wish that we had some more (air force strength)." "General." replied Senator Maybank, "it is not a question of affording it. If the military really believes that it is necessary, that is a different story." Earlier in the same hearings, Senator Knowland of California raised the Korean issue. He said he had been talking with General Roberts of the American military mission and there was a confidence the South Koreans could give a good account of themselves "as against any indigenous invasion from the north by Koreans alone." The California Senator then added: sying: "Of course, it is a $64 question "I ejnphasized . . . that the even- as to -what would happen if the Chinese Communists were to move material and manpower to reinforce the North Koreans." Mr. Knowland proceeded to outline the Communist strength in Asia and referred to a published estimate of Soviet Union and satellite forces in the Far East of 5.235,000 men, whereas the non-Communist forces were believed to number only 1.315.000. "In other words," he remarked, "it is about a 4-to-l ratio." The California Senator sought to draw from General Bradley some idea as to what America could do in a military way in the Far East in case of an emergency and asked if the members of the joint chiefs, who had just been out to the Far East, had gone to Korea. The general said they had not. The question naturally arises as to what preparations the joint chiefs made for the defense of American interests in the Far East Senator Taft holds that the joint chiefs failed. The answer they probably would make is that the President didn't allow them adequate funds. And the answer to that point is that the Joint Chiefs of Staff are the top military command. Its members are not supposed to be economists or experts on the capacity of the citizens to pay taxes or on the disbursements for social welfare on which the Administration may prefer to spend its money instead of on national defense.

Middle- Doctor Says: LEAD POISONING IS YIELDING TO EDUCATION AND PREVENTION By EDWIN P. JORDAN. M. D. Written for NEA Service "I fear" writes A. G. A., "that my brother, who is sick, is troubled with paint poisoning. Would you describe the effects?" Paint, of course, Is made up of a number of chemicals, but probably this correspondent means lead poisoning, which at least in the past was the most common and important type of poisoning resulting from paint. Before discussing lead poisoning, however, it should be pointed out that paint manufacturers and other industries using lead have developed many precautionary methods, so that lead poisoning is now almost a vanishing industrial disease. Lead can be absorbed through the lungs, skin, or the digestive organs. Although the body takes lead into the system easily, it does not get rid of it so svell. If lead poisoning begins suddenly, a large amount of lead must have been absorbed rapidly, usually through the stomach. Pain in the abdomen, vomiting, and collapse are symptoms of this acute form. Severe colicky pains and rapidly developing anemia with a typical white waxy color of the skin is frequent Examination of such cases shows town.

A blue line around the gums is also an important symptom m many cases of lead poisoning, but it is not always present. The Major Symptoms The most important symptoms of the slow or chronic poisoning are paralysis, usually of the arms, colicky pains in the bowels, and disturbances of the brain. Headache is common and patients are frequently emotionally excited or depressed. Lead poisoning has ^gradually become less serious because of the measures which have been taken in industry to protect those who work with lead, and because of the increased understanding of those who work with this metal of the dangers involved. Lead poisoning of either the acute or chronic varieties is most unpleasant, and hard to treat. Consequently, great care in prevention, including careful cleaning of the hands and fingernails, particularly before eating should be insisted upon for all those who are exposed to absorbable forms of lead.
