Care Is Worth While The report on fires in Faycllcvillc during tlic year just pant, made by Fire Chief Burl Skclton. ilcscrvcs -Rome i i l . l c n l i o n by the publfc. The Council t h i n k s t h e record deserves the thanks of the official f a m i l y , and (he aldermen a,re expraywijr I h o i r up- prcciatimi through n letter written by Mayor Powell M. llho* to the department. Fayetlcville operates in the main w i t h » volunteer Fire Dnpiirtn'innt. There arc eight, paid men--they aren't paid very much money and they work lung hours, mid they stand ready at all limes of the day or nfglil to answer alarms and put even their lives in danger if need he to control consuming flames. The volunteers jro on t h e i r own' time, at (heir own expense--that they really do respond when ihc alarm is sounded is-proven b y - t h e figures w,hich show nri average of 21 men rc- porlcdlto the scene of each fire, for a total of 6,075 men called to all fires in Fayetteville during 1951. There were H6 reRhlcnco fires in the eity limits last year, and there were 14 residential fires in rural areas surrounding the eity. The firemen were culled out in response to 13 alarms when grass fires in rural areas endangered properly or lives. Fire, fighters put out 155 grass r ires within t h e city limils. Fire iinparaius traveled a total of I,130 miles in 1051--the engines worked a total of 121 hours. Fayctleville suffered a f i r e loss d u r i n g the year of $lfi,;(25 in 219 fires w i t h i n the city limits. Properly exposed to damage was valued at SI. 139,700, and included Ihrce large buildings on t h e University campus where fires were reported at one time or unol her. We should bo proud of the record of t h e Faycltcville Fire Department, for the men have served well. We can't be too well pleased with our record as e.itiy.cns. however, for a large n u m b e r of those 155 (trass fires, for example, were caused by carelessness. More cuulion would have meant t h a t Ihe apparatus would not. have traveled »« far as it did, fewer volunteers would have found it necessary to leave their places of business and rush to the danger spots, t h e drivers would have t a k e n fewer spfns in the expensive vehicles. Less property would have been Riidanvcred . ( f a l l of us had used t h e care of which wo are capable in selling fires--or in soeing that they didn't Rot K(ar).ed when there was a high wind, or inflammable grass * - ns nearby. Every time the engines make a run to ·' fire, the taxpayers fork over good money. Every time an alarm is put in, presumably property of some nature is in danger or is already burning. We can cut down on Ihe fires t h r o u g h extra precautions, rf we will only make i( a practice to t h i n k and watch.- It is surely worth our while to be careful. ' I f you haven't, a leg to stand on it's amarter not to kick. When learning to drive a car folks are thrown on Ihoir own responsibility. A n d , when careless, on n lot more, than thai.

Testifying under oath. Tale admitted ensiling campaign checks nnd keeping the unused cash in n safely deposit box at a b.'mk in Cincinnati, « * * "Arid t h a i box was taken In the name of whom?" itsked Sen. Tom Hcnnings, Missouri Democrat. "Men K. Talc," replied Hen E. Talc. "And w h a t did you keep in it, Mr. TatcV" pressed Hcnnings. "1 keep stocks," shrugged Tate. "I don't mean your i n d i v i d u a l safe deposit hiix," interrupted lleimlngs. "Was there one for the campaign?" "I had two boxes," Talc fidgeted. "Well, WII.T there one box used for the campaign?" prodded Hennings. "I mean these boxes belong to me. I used my own box fur the campaign," Talc came out wilh it. "You did. l;eep Ihc campaign funds in your own safe depusil boxes?" asked the senator from Missouri incredulously. "That is right." admitted Tale. "'And cash money, was it?" Mcnnings asked. "Yes," nodded Taft's money raiser. "Why. Mr. Tale?" demanded Hennings. "So that 1 could take the money out and buy drafls." was Tatc'i; only explanation. "What was the money lhat you kept in the box?" persisted llcnnings. "What did it represent, money that you were holding to buy drafls?" "That IK right," agreed Tate. * +.' * "None of that was ever reported either?" inquired* Ucnnlngs. "That was repnrled when we . . ." stammered Tale. Then he checked himself and shrugged: 'No, 1 am sorry. 1 don't know whether it was ever reported." "And 'you have no record of how much was kept-ln the boxes?" hammered the Missouri senator. "No," confessed Tali. 1 . "Now, such amounts t h a i you cnllecled in your capacity as treasurer and forwarded lo other committees, did yo report?" asked Hcn- nitiRs. "No, the record would he in those committees . . ." explained Tale. "I undcrsUmd from them lhat these reporls have been made, but 1 have, not H c l i m l l y checked them."

"You just assumed Ihen that they had reported?" suggested Hennings. "That is r i g h t . Having confidence in them, T assumed II," admilled Tale. "And you have no records whatever of any of Ihese amounts? 1 ' Hennings kept firing. "Thai is right," admitted the Taft treasurer. "I haven't in my possession any record, but tin; records arc in these committees. Thai is my opinion, because I have confidence in Hie members of these committees." "In forwarding Ihis money lo Iho several committees, did you do so by mail?" Hennings continued. "Yes," nodded Tate. "Did you write covcrinc letters?" asked Ilen- "ings. . . .-· "I don't think 1 asked them to acknowledge receipt, bill 1 transmitted sonic by mail, sonic I gave to them." explained Tate. "Anil do you know where any of those covering lellers are?" the Missourian hammered. "No, I tin not," Tate flustered. "They might have been destroyed with I' _· other files, the letters." "Who destroyed these letters?" dcmimdcd Hennings. "Some of Ihe people in my office thai I had instructed them lo do," admitted Tale, "How much cash for the purpose of distribution to Hie several committees went through your hands and was not reported by you, bill you hope reported by the committees?" asked Il'p-n- niugs.

The more she thought of it the imorc sure Alma became that there had been something concealed In 'the handkerchief the old woman hnd dropped. Hml it b«n the British jewel or something else?

She simply hnd to go place where she could hold her arhing head and thmk things out quietly, yet she was almost afraid to return to her apartment. The police might come: might already be there, waiting. But there did not seem to be any other place go. Hcluctantly she turned toward tiome.

She threw her furs and her package onto the sofa and stood facing him, her eyes fixed steadily on his, waiting for his reaction *s she shook her head slowly in answer to his question. Then she uncurled her hand and let him see what she held Inside it. But Tommy did nothing dramatic. He merely raised hit eyebrows in mild curiosity. Hello!" h« said. "Where on earth did you get that?" Then a petulant shadow crossed his face. 'Now I suppose there will be · row about my having given them away!" he added, defensively. She was watching every gesture he made, every shadow of expression on his face, and now relief flooded her. , Tommy was no actor. She had a'lwayi been able o see through his best pretenses and he was not acting now. But she had to make perfectly ceruin. "That depends on whom you inve them to," she said evenly.

Ta Bf HALBOYLP New York-(/P)-So it's Leap Year, lady,, and you want to get lhat guy?' / Well, if you want to be successful, quit trying lo follow the usual advice lo the lovelorn, and face the real facts of life. The main fact is that the odd, are against you--and the odds are getting worse. Ten years at, r o there were 100 men for every 100 women in the United States. But the list census showed there are only 96.0 men over 21 for every 100 women in the same agu bracket. There just aren't enough guys to go around. Most of the 100 women try to marry one of those 96 men. Why don't you aim at the leftover--the .6 per cent fellow. Don't forget that if you can't get ft whole man a male fraction is better than none. The professional advice-givers usually tell a girl to be sensible and "marry a dependable, healthy man with a steady job and a good sense of humor." That is like tcll- you to marry the man in the noon. Think of all the men you know who are dependable,- healthy, and lave steady jobs and a good sense of humor. Don't they already wear some other gal's brand? As a foung lady told me mournfully: '1 know a lot of good men I'd ike to marry--but their wives von't let me." So, if .you really want to get wed this year, start culling over he junk heap of masculinity that s left. Remember, a good jalopy :an be built from the metal scraps ound in the average 'city dump. Your best bet isn't to search or the perfect husband. It's io alvage and recondition some bat- crcd Joe your girl friends havt passed over in the mad scramble. To lake some maculine nightmare and remold him into your dream man--that is your challenge, lady. A few tips on how to do it: Look (or a man with circles under his eyes. Now, here ii obviously a fellow who needs a good long rest. All you have to do is convince him that if he marries you he will gel it. Men with ulcers are always good possibilities. But if you have an ulcer, too, don't let him know about it until after you've pushed him to the altar. Tell him you're flatfooled or got indoor eczema-and he won't mind. But all bachelors are instinctively wary of wedding women wilh the same ailment as they have. They don't want to share it with anybody. Single men w i t h melancholy dispositions arc first-rate prospects. Marriage is a serious prop- ositioi/ and nothing is so trying !o a wife as a mate who brags about his sense of humor. What »ives a husband the right to think ie'a- got anything to laugh about anyway? Don't worry if the rhan you're after doesn't seem able to hold a steady job. Six months after you and him, he'll be glad to get up every morning and go to work-anything to get out of the hotise. The main thing is--don't look 'or a man you want to marry because of his virtures. Marry a man his defects, and then iron them out. It is much easier to coated a defect than to preserve a virtue. Two final warnings: Don't marry a man who wears bowtics and a crew haircut. He'll never grow up. And don't marry an oboe player, t'ou'll never hear ths last of him. Deai- Miss Dix: I am a hiKh- chool boy of 14, and all I want s to be a normal teen-ager. My larents, who married late in life, do not understand this. They insist on driving me to school in a car, supervise every phase of my school work, even complaining loudly if they feel I am not treated fairly by my teachers. They are interested in my activities, but I can't confide in them. Mother, on several occasions, has repeated to her friends things I have told her in confidence. They want lo travel around on week ends, when I'd like nothing better than 1o stay home. It isn't that I don't appreciate the advantages of having a nice home and good background, but all I want is to lead the same kind of life my schoolmates do without starting a family quarrel. JEHRY S. Answer: You are not alone in your plight, Jerry; it's shared by many other boys also the sole sons of parents who married later in life. Older parents, it is true, can usually give their offspring more financial benefits than ran the struggling young couple, but the advantage is frequently offset by their total lack of understanding of the problems of youth. Thty Lick Pcriptctlrt Naturally, the further away wr get from nur own youth, the more d i f f i c u l t it is to get a perspective on the problems of the new generation.- If a couple rcacheo ihc age whore they would normally be grandparents before Ihcy become parents, ubviously they arc in for a difficult adjustment. Their child becomes a treasured toy upon whom every luxury must be lavished.' Paradoxically, this pampering is often accompanied by exercise of discipline designed to push the youngster more quicklv into an acceptance of adult standards. Naturally the result is utter confusion on the part of the child, who only wants, as does Jerry, a normal existence. » Changing your parents' altitude towards y.ou is not a fight to be waged single-handed. Can you enlist the aid of a teacher, or adult friend who could exert a little influence with your family? A straightforward talk on the desirability of less supervision might help. It will not .effect a great change, however; your parents arc too set in their own habits by now. Just realize that you have many advantages, and let these benefits offset in great measure the liabilities of your position. Dear Miss Dix: We are three young married women with children and would jjreatly appreciate your honest opinion on the following. What with the holiday season upon us, our husbands will undoubtedly attend the usual office parties at which they will dine nnd dance with their women associates, and without their wives present. Do you think this is proper? K., L,, and B. Answer: The practice of Christ- j mas and New Year's parties in offices, or other places of bust* ness, has become so firmly entrenched that all your disapproving will not curtail it. It seems to me to be rather a pleasant custom. For any business organization lo fulfill its mission successfully, there must be harmonious accord among all its members. Isn't it logical that the friendliness growing among congenial business associates should have an expression in one gala event at the year's end? A wife with inclinations toward jealousy will naturally resent her husband's participation in such affairs--as she rcsenU his every move where another woman is rnnrerncd. A sensible woman, on the other hand, especially one who hns herself been in the business world, will appreciate how innocuous these things arc. Attendance at office parties is very often practically obligatory, so don't begin to berate your husbands as soon as they announce their intention of attending one. If you can trust yoiT men with their business associates for the rest of the year, why make an exception for the holidays? What's Cooking?
