Eccles was close to Prof. Ilcxford Guy Tugwell and other economists who helped devalue the dollar, And subsequently he was appointed chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. Came the Truman administration, and Kccles eventually tangled with Ihe secretary of t h e treasury over Ihc basic policy of government bonds anil its I n f l a t i o n a r y effect on the national economy. Last year, w i t h seven more years of his term to run, Kccles riuit in disgust. Hack In U t a h with a new and b e a u t i f u l wife, Kccles is being urged lo run for Ihe Senate.

President McKay has strong sympathies (or better education, better-paid teachers, more school buildings. ' Opposing him Is .1. Reuben Clark, former corporation counsel, former undersecretary of state, foi'mer ambassador lo Mexico ami. u n t i l recently No. 1 counselor on the quorum of the 12 apostles of the Morman Church. · When In Ihc Stale Department, Clark was Considered something of a radical. He pioneered a new study of the Monroe Doctrine which virtually meant that we surrender that cfntin-y- ·nd'a-half-old policy [or the Western Hemisphere. He took what was considered a super- .fcMrous stand In demanding that a large per- coTHage of water from Doulder Dam and the Colorado'River go to Mexico. And he took a firm stand against sending U.S. troops lo the Mexican border during the 11128 Mexican skirmishes.' Today, at the age of 80, however., Reuben Clark Is the most reactionary abostlc in the Mormon Church--KO reactionary that, when Mc- .Kny became president, he promptly demoted Clark from his previous place as No. 1 counselor. ,f*o(v he; jits f a r t h e r down the line.

Further study of the voluminous records In the Malaxa case shows that instead of being friendly with the Iron Guard, as reported by the FBI, two Iron Guardlsts verc convicted of breaking Into Malaxa's home.

For just nine year« no thi« week the U.S. Army's Second Corps.was learning a blt- Itr lesson in the art of warfare 'n the battle of Kasscrlne Gap. Their teachers were the combat- hardened 'warriors of field Msr- 'hll Rommel's famed Afrika Korps. Pursued more than 1,000 miles across the sands from Libya by. Montgomery's tenacious "Desert Hits," the Nazi commanders were hungry for gas supplies. »nd other They decided to get them from h* Americans, spread thinly along the right flank of the Tunisian corridor. Their hope was to :rash the American line, roil their 'anzers north to, Constantine, a lit Allied base, a"nd wrap up the Iritlsh Second Army en route. With no enemy at his back. Hom- lel could then turn Ms fresh-sup- llcd armor around and deal again 'ith liis old foe, Montgomery. The breakthrough plan was al- mst exactly (he same as that em- loyed later in the war By the lazis in their daring, hopeless arnbte in the battle of the Bel- n bulge. And it failed for the ime reason-- In neither case did he Germans quite reach our «up- ly bases. But it looked like an easy touch i those eafly Tunisian days; The tneHcans were out-gunned, out- umbered and relatively Uhtried V battle. Leisurely the Nazis massed and « sudden night attack seized aid Pass from its French infan. .v defenders. This gave them an wninfc down into the plains. earful that this was only a divef onary action, and that the Gfcr- min.t would ma,kc thtfrtntln drive through i pin farther north, the Allied commander refused to let the American! group and throw all their force into a single unified counterattack. The American went Into action unitf therefore on* at a time, slid were simply chopped to pieces or forced to fill back in-ifee face of the superior weight of the wheeling Panzers. Rut one ni'ht Combat Command 'B" of th* First Armored Division, a tremendous fighting outfit, held back the Germans at Sbeitla, once a Roman oufpost. while ouf trucks in relays carried back our supplies. Those thlt couldn't b« removed were put to the torch, and the flames flickered ibout the old Roman ruins, ghostly In the i?-if night. The great st»hd helped defeat he Nazis. They went on thrbugti Kasscrine Gap, driving the Ameri* cans back 40 miles. But the Panzers never reached the (as dumps 'or which they were thirsting, iritish tanks and artillery trundled down to support the hard-pressed Americans, and baffled by this new strength al Thala pass, Rommel pulled back. It was the beginning -of the end for his Afrika Korps, one of the great armies of history. The bat« tered 'American foree was taken over by two new generals -- George Patton and Omar Bradley-- and they began to build It into a riilehty army. Nothing exists of that battle now; except old metal rusting in the timeless sands, and the memories o fmeti who shared loyalty and danger there. Was it all only nine short years ago, Or i Century? Nothing is as temporary as an arjly. Dear Dorothy nix: My husband has a small business which keeps him traveling all day, thoiflli he comes home every night. I understand that when he is away al d*y l,u doesn't feel much like going out at night, especially as his work continues right through Saturday and Sunday, However, 1 tfo, work hard 16 keep things moving. I have three small chiK dren to keep me busy and. I also run the office end of the busl ness. Consequently, I don't get away from the house at all except for a few hours of shopping, which rtiy husband thinks li a pleasure trip. He objects to my taking the ear so the children tnd 1 can have a little outing, and absolutely re fuses to take any time off to take the r*st 6f the family out. This steady, daily grind is getting- on my nerves so much that I am getting irritable and almost physically ill. Candy Answer: Every housewife is lif.le better off.'if she can manage art afternoon or an evening out occasionally. This is, however, a Utopian feat that often cannot be accomplished by any means. With your husband so completely 1 involved in' business, your only hance would be to pack the oUhg!!t«rs In the car and go off 'or ah aftertibn; your husband s unreasonable lo deprive you of hat small favflr. Perhaps you should be a little more determined; don't expeot to.achieve these priv- leges fi-om a domineering mate Withfiut strong effort Cklldren Will Grow Up If you must face the fact that entertainment or relaxation of any type is out of the Question at present, be consoled with- the thought that your youngsters are growing fast and will soon be entirely untied from your apron strings. Of course, the drawback to attaining that desirable day is that you'll iriss the little dependents like the dickens, ficsponsibility may seem irksome at times, but it it the one thing above all else that makes life worth living. The day when you realize that no one li dependent upon you, that you have ho family responsibilities,-Will be the loncsomest day of your life. If you can't get away from the house with the children, set aside a special time each day for a relaxing period with them. An hour of game-playing or story telling will do you all a world of good and will take away many of the kinks of a hafd, monotonous day of domestic drudgery . Dear Miss DIx: I have an inferiority compley abbUt my height. I'm 5 feet 9 inches tall and my husband is the same height. When 1 look around 'and fee so many small and dainty girls, I'm sure my husband wishes he had married one. M. C/ .

YoUr height Is certainly not excessive and rtbth- ., ing for you 16 be self-eotisioUS about.
