Merry- THE WASHINGTON i-Go-Round · T DHEW PEAMOII Washington--A secret meeting in' which every housewife will be Interested will be held ;it 10 a. m., tomorrow In the crystal room of th* Sherman Hotel in Chicago. Present at the merlins w i l l be roprc»cnt;itlve.« of the livestock Industry and the biB food processors, and their purpose will be to kill price controls. "This will be a seerct meeting w i t h o u t . p u h - licll.v," wrote C. B. Watson, president of the Corn Dell Livestock Feeders Association, to various meat, grain and food processors. However, this column has obtained copies of the correspondence and believes the public Is entitled to know what backslnRe forces are working to defeat prk'e controls. The first confidential letler calling the meeting was mailed by the Corn Belt Livestock Feeders on J a n u a r y 31, filatlnp,: "Your association w a n t s lo Rc-t rid of OPS and price controls. Various jjroups'wllhln Industries, such as the National Livestock and Meal Industry Conference are doing most excellent work. H u t . this Is much bigger t h a n livestock. All branches of business should work together in a 'well-planned fight. I f you arc w i l l i n g to work with olher organi- sations, (hen please allcnd a meeting at Chicago on February 28. This will be a confidential meeting without publicity." *' * * The Livestock Feeders Association enclosed a plan of strategy headlined "OPS must go." which contained highly significant tips for i n f l u e n c i n g radio nrogramx and newspapers \against price controls. "Those with radio time would be asked to Invite In the reprcjsentallves of other organizations when some startling bit of information could be broadcast that would brine resentment against OPS." the memo advised.' "The deliberate and planned allempl would be lo make it as unsavory to the public as was OPA. "On'a set, specific day. not later than April 15," the secret memo continued. "»ll members, north, south, east and wcsj.. would be asked 'to paste In their car » windshield sticker carrv- Ing the slogan of the ramoalnn. 'lake the Shackles Off Production--OPS Musi Go! "The chalrrnan must also sec to it thai leltrrr are poured in to each member of Congress from his (date. In a steady stream, all demanding t h a i when and if the defense nrnducllon act of IfSn is to be, renewed, that it first must he amended to droii from that act the OPS." The above memo, plus confidential letter. - were tent nut by (he Policy Committee of the Corn Helt Livestock Feeders. Association, and signed by C. B. Watson, president. . *- * * Then, on February 6, the Livestock Feeders followed up with another letter staling t h a t the earlier response had been ?o enthusiastic "we have decided lo en ahead'with the meeting." "II wilt be called to order at 10 a. m. in the crystal room, Hotel Sherman, February 2s ... We have no delusions that eliminating OPS will be n easy iob," the letter continued, "Nevertheless we believe the fight should be made In the hope that nt least the, Henublicans will nut n nlank in their political .platform condemning nrlcc, controls." Organizations Invited to attend the Chicago meeting tomorrow include: The American Meat Institute, American NatlonaJ Cattlemen's Association, Associated Poultry and Kcu Industries, Indenendent Livestock Marketing Association, of Columbus: Indianapolis Livestock F.v- * change, Kansas Livestock Association. Milk Industry Foundation, Missouri Livestock Association, National Association of Chain Sjorcs. National Lamb Feeders Association, Western States Meat Packers Association and the U. S. Chamber of Commerce. A total of 125 people are expected to attend. * * * Note 1--It's i m p o r t a n t lo remember t h a t them are no celling prices on rattle-, only on meat--though this, In turn, is supposed to hold down cattle prices. Under this system during World War II. OPA kept the ceiling on cattle at 12 ccnls a pound. jBince Ihc end of OPA, beef cattle ha-..' risen In price lo between 3D and 41 cents a pound, causing ground slcak to shool up from 42 cents per pound during Ihe war years under OPA to 08 cents In June 1950, and $1.12 In May, 1951. Jt was at this point that OPS ordered controls. Note 2--The cattle feeders who conspire to end price controls are estimated by the Agriculture Department to be making a profit of $48 per head as of this year. The 10-year average profit 'prior to this period was $23 per head. · Able Sen. Tom Underwood of Lexington, K.V., served many years as secretary of the Kentucky state Racing Commission before he came lo Congress. As such, he became so wrapped up in horses that he sometimes got (hem confused with famous figures In American history. One day some tourists asked Underwood to direct them to the grave of Nancy Hanks, mother of Abe Lincoln, who once lived at Lexington. Underwood, his mind on horses, obliged with directions, and the tourists went out to find the grave. FlndinK it. they placed a large wrealh at, the base In honor of Lincoln's mother. But one of them remarked: "I wonder why there's a horse on top of Nancy Hanks' grave?" Looking more closely, he read this Inscription: "Nancy Hanks, champion trotting mare." In Kentucky, they erect monuments to their horses. Thcyll Do It Every Time ^ii.^T '^sjttZPjSj'jJiJSSJ^ 1'" . · y--f By Jimmy Hatlo TH/VTS THE HEem-OF SOMETHWS OR OTHER- TRIES TO TELL HIM . KW TO RUN!

Twelve men arc at work on the Post Office building and work is progiesslng rapidly on the annex.

XXXIX .CO the weeks passed, spent on al ternalinf tides of fear and desire, menace and- security, ice and fire. There were times when love was enough and there were times when even love did not ease the frustration of Peter's exile from research. Unwilling to 1 i v/: on Jennet's money, Peter had taken a job in the experimental division 6f a television firm. They assured each other that it was only a temporary measure, but the days went by, Christmas, New Year's, January was half gone, and they had not heard. It was an unpalatable irony that at that moment when her own life had assumed a greeting-card ful- somencss, Peter's should have lost it; a further Irony th»t she was as powerless to restore it to htm as he was empowered to award it ,10 her. ': For her, Pftcr had changed I everything. He had transformed Iher from child to woman, and she I took a fierce pleasure in her womanly tasks. She did her own housework now--Ingrld, unable to transfer allegiance to a new master, had .gone--and under Jennet's familiarizing dust cloth, vacuum cleaner, scrub brush, the house lost the animistic tyranny with which she had moodily Imbued It, became a functionally p i e m a n t pl«c« In which one did one's living, She had ceased play-acting the role of mlitrcu of the house, had, by virtue nt h«r mw wnlorlty, reduced the houM to Nrvlc*. The white picket ftncc wit no longer I con- ftntnwnt but an cmbrau. In Ihe way of women whoM husbandl are not watchful of money, Jennet had become not only practical but thrifty, Initl- I itlnf of her own accord eronor.y AM»iur« that one* would have caused her to feel abused. She did her own laundry, prided herself on the mastery of ironing Peter's shirts. The phone rang. * * * AT Angel's Hospital, the row of past presidents' portraits striped the wall behind, the long conference table. The black and white of garb and faces was repeated in the white mattings and black frames, and below them, thfe dark-suited, whitc-shirted members of the hospital executive committee rayed out in two parallel tines, living extensions of the dead. To the left of the chairman, op- p o s i t e the superintendent, the younger man in Gus Logan's seat moved restlessly under tht felt eye of Walter Pelletler, who-was indeed at that moment looking through the young man to see the benign ghost of his predecestor. When the signal c a m e--"Any new business or unfinished qld business?" -- Walter Felletier sprang up. "Mr, Chairman!" Hli voice Armed as he read aloud. " 'happy to report,'" Re read, " 'that the FBI has thoroughly checked the character and moral standards of Dr. Peter Surlnov and they find that he Is entirely satisfactory without 'reservation. We are therefore Instructing our offlce to approve your budget request for your project and you will receive payment In q u a r t e r l y Installments . . . " When he had finished reading the letler, Dr. Pelletler lalM It and looked up, Trie (con were almost flatteringly attentive. Wort than attentive, they were ilerl. He slapped the letter aftlnit Ihe Ubtt ·die. "That MUr," bt Mid, "to from the Division of Biology and Medicine of the Atomic Energy Commission. The experiment to which it refers will, if successful, protect human beings from the damage of atomic bombing." He paused, glanced at the superintendent's d r u m m i n g f i n g e r s which had begun to beat the table with the frenzy of a Geiger counter put to pitchblende. The fingers stopped then and Dr. Pelletier continued. "The idea for this piece of work is Peter Surlnov's. The work was started here last May by Peter Surinov. The United States Government says it may be continued by Peter Surinov. And frankly, gentlemen, I say it must be done by Peter Surinov or not at this hospital at all. In view of the confused and tragic circumstances under which Dr. Surinov was released from Angels some months ago, I want to get this committee's approval before re-appointing him to my department staff." · · · Tl/TAXWELL COTA shot out of his seat. "Mr. Chairman, this is ari administrative matter. Administration Is my job. Dr. ·Felletier ii out of order bringing this up' if committee business!" "It was this committee that dred him!" Dr. Pelletler bellowed. "How technical can you get? This is a medical board, not a court of law." "The firing was different," Cola retorted. "The loyalty oath Involved hospital policy." "I want the m a t t e r cleared through this committee," Dr. Pel- Idler Insisted. "I'm not finicky about points of order. There'i too much at stake. Last time the main Issue of Peter Surlnov's loyalty was lost In the explosion of a dirty stick of homemade dynamite. It killed our beloved eol*t*t\w, GUI Logan.

"Now you list sit and stare at that screen s if you were hypnotized. I am orry we ever bought that thing." "That thing" is her hate name or Miss Cyclops, who has domi- lated our parlor for about a month. I suppose this rivalry between wives and television sets is going fn in millions of American homes. t is naturally hard for a wife o understand why her husband will pay .more attention to a .one- eyed machine than he will to her. No wonder the wife is jealous. iut you can't exactly blame the husband. In a single evening he an look into his TV set and see debate between two senators, musical program, a boxing match, and an old movie. He can't get all that free entertainment by taring into his wife's eyeballs. The average wife is beginning to ealize this, and- it is giving, her feeling k hopeless inferiority. *1 HAL BOTL* And it doesn't make h*r tttl «ny better, when she go«» into- tht nursery to croon her child to sleep with an old lullaby, to have her moppet say: "Cut out that rock-a-bye baby stuff, mama. Pon't you know any singing commercials?" What can a wife do? How can she fight back at this piece -of talking furniture that ii winning her husband and 'children away? Well, some wives are resorting to underhand tactics.. A friend told me his TV repairman said: "You want to know why some-i thing's always going wrong with your set? Don't blame me. Ask your wife. Maybe it's her. A lot .of wives these days wait until their husband gets out' of,- th« house in the morning, and then they go and tamper with the T" set so it won't work. They feel that's the only way they can get their husband to listen to them. 11 . Last Sunday I watched Miss Cyclops for nine hours straight and wore out a pair of pants. That's an idea. Why don't they sell "television trousers" guaranteed to last as long as the set itself? .They could make them of aluminum and nylon. ' Dear Miss Dix: I have two laughters, one finishing college and the other high school. The ilder girl is pretty and' knows it, so she expects everyone to cater o her good looks and selfish dis- josition. Result: She hasn't any 'riftids, either boys or girls, but doesn't blame it on herself--she mariages to find-another reason. Her attitude is that every one is stupid but herself. While the younger girl is not very pretty, she makes the most of her looks by being neat and clean and has a happy-go-lucky nature. She speaks to young and old with a smile and has lots of 'riends, especially boys, which makes her sister jealous. My tius- land and T have slopped inviting our friends and relatives because we are ashamed of our older girl's mariners. She is rude to everyone who comes in, lounges in a housecoat most of the time. 1 am tired of making excuses 'and seeing the raised eyebrows of our guests. She is only 20 and is scared she'll be an old maid;.frankly, so am I, un- css she changes her disposition. She is making life miserable for everyone in the house. Mrs. W. G. Answer: It is certainly a waste [)f nature's good gifts when an attractive girl throws away her endowments. It is. however, a consolation to the Plain Janes that beauty isn't everything; in fact, is nothing whatever unless accompanied by charm and graciousness. Your younger daughter has learned the secret of happiness and will be forever blessed for the knowledge. Make Her Behave You and your husband are very wrong in letting the haughty miss ruin the family's peace and harmony. Since she is living under the parental roof, is attending college at her father's expense, and is dependent upon him for her clothes and spending money, he is the one to crack the whip--not your daughter. You have ap-' parently let the reins of authority sl'.i from your hands info your daughter's. Better get them back luickly! If she cannot face your guests with . smile, make her stay in her. own room for the evening and reduce the allowance until she can net like an intelligent girl 01 20. It isn't too late yet for you to exercise r litlle discipline, but time's a-wastin; - so don't put it off too long. Disillusion your girl about her mental capacity. She is being so stupid that she's probably the laughingstock of half the folks in town. Bring that interesting fact home to her! Bad manners are aa certain a sign of ignorance ai I kno-.v, and all the college degrees in the world won't remove the stigma. "3eing smart takes more than the ability to pass exams and get a diploma; the ability to get along with people is the. surest mark of intelligence. What she does with her life will be her own business, but you must insist that she stop running and ruining the. entire household. This much you, as the mother, owe your husband and younger daughter. Keeping harmony in the home is your job; if you can't handle it, call upon father's disciplinary measures, but \yhatever form the authority must take, see that it is exercised. Dear Miss Dix: My husband is 33, I am 25 and we have three children. He Is very good, but I cannot make a go of our marriage. We have been married eight years. I knew I didn't love him when we were married but I thought I could change afterward. Now I know my mistake. Besides, I have found a man I do like very much, and he likes me, but I can't make up my mind to get a divorce. J. R. Answer: You are indeed mixed up, and I think a long talk with your clergyman might straighten things out for you. Your marriage had a very unfortunate foundation, both in your extreme youth and the fact that you didn't love your husband. The bridge has been crossed, and your present situation is not ft all bad except for your reaction to it. You. have a good husband and lovely children; nothing finer could be possessed. Your own mind is where the trouble lies, and only you can cure it. Cast out this romantic obsession with another man; even if you were foolish enough to divorce your husband and marry the other man, you would never be happy. Such marriages are doomed from the beginning. Give him up and concentrate on making a good home for your husband and children. You'll never regret it.
