NMTHWMT AMUNM* TWU. Menrrejary, Aprtt J, I MI Mrs. Phillips, World Traveler, Endorsed For Next Preident Of Federated Women's Clubs Br KATHLEEN DOZIER j F»r removed from the retiring ·/oman of years gone by, Is Mrs. V. E; N. Phillips of Fayetteville "ind Prairie Grove, who has beer, endorsed f6r the off ice'of president of the Arkansas Federation af Women's Clubs. She Is typical "»f the modern American woman, versatile and,* leader. Mrs. Phillips, a native of Oklahoma, attended the state university it Norman, where ihe was a member of the PI Beta Phi Sorority, "She also attended Stephens College »nd the University of Colorado. She taught for awhile in the elementary achools at Tulsa and IClaremore. In 1927 she and her husband moved to Arkansas, making their home at El Dorado, and 10 years later to Prairie Grove where she became an active member of a federated club.. She was. however, no stranger In Prairie Grnve, having visited on many oc- "easions with her uncle, and dreamed of sometime making that her home. Their farm is located Bear the town, where Mr. and "Mrs. Phillips are both active in eivic and community life. In 1942 the Phillips' moved to ·.Fayetteville, still maintaining the arm at Prairie Grove. In Fay- ttteville their sons, Gordon and Jonathan, attended school. Gor- -rion is now an attorney in Washington, D. C., and Jonathan'is attending Tulsa University. He will receive his masters degree in geophysics there in June. In March of the same year, Mrs. Phillips was named president of _ the Northwest district federation, aifter serving as president of the Prairie Grove club. From this office she went on to serve as chalr- "man of the state Board of Directors in the department of American homej slate treasurer and first vice president, the of- ·fice she now holds. Warm Personality One's first impression, when Mrs. Ph!llip meeting Mrs, Phillips, is her genuine smile and handclasp. She has .e warm vibrant personality that is wholly unaffectod. These factors must have been considered when she was appointed as a .delegate from the state to the Houston Convention and tour of Mexico and Guatemala, last June; the World Cooperation Tour ot the General Federation lest August; jnd the South American Tour this year during the month of January. .Mrs. Phillips is absorbed in recalling Impressive.incidents which .occurred during her travels and she relates with enthusiasm, the highlights of her journeys: Leaving Houston, the group of delegates flew to Mexico City, from where tours were made of "surrounding country under the leadership of Mrs. Hiram Cole Houghton, national resident of the federation. In Guatemala they "were guests at the capital, and made side tours to points of interest. They v i s i t e d Chichi Castenago, located in a mountainous terrain and the beautiful Lake Atitlan which is surrounded by extinct volcanos. They were also entertained by the first lady of the country. treeted In Paris The 30-day World Cooperation Tour began by boarding a Transi World Airliner in New York City. Flying the "Lindbergh Route." the first itop was Shannon, Ireland, then across the Irish Sea, the white cliffs of Dover and the English channel to Paris. They were greeted at the airport by a number of French clubwomen. While "in Paris they visited headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and met with Generals Gruenther, Lnnham and ·Biddie, who explained the organization and its purposes. They were received at the Fulbright plan headquarters; visited the famous Versailles and the Hospital Raymond Poincare, as well as the Institute Pasteur; were guests of the American E m b a s s y and .Mmme. Toni Robert, most decorated woman in France because of her work with the Resistance. After a reception by the city of .Nice and sightseeing on the Riviera, the group .flew to Rome, and by train went to Naples where they saw the ruins of Pompeii, then by boat to the Isle of Capri to see the Blue Grotto. Salerno »nd the beachhead were also visited. Projects of the Economic Cooperation Administration · Florence were of interest to the group. From here the flight was to Athens, Greece. Have Audience With Queen In this country the ruins of an ancient civilization were viewed. The party was joined here by Mrs. Houghton and Mrs. Chapman, GFWC second vice president, in time for an audience with Queen Frederika at the summer palace. This proved to be a most · impressive occasion, according to Mrs. Phillips. The queen has n very youthful appearance and charm, she says, and Her Majes- · ty's great concern Is for the thousands of Greek children who were «bduet«d during guerrilla warfare. The queen appealed to the group (or aid in bringing about the children's return. Following this interview there was a. dinner and meeting with ' the Greek Foundation. Addresses were given by the president and vie* president of the organization. I|yrt was the next slop with a HWptlun ·* the American Embassy and a meeting with the ·Csire Women's Club. Their ape- dsl Interest la work in village center! when they cooperate with Ihe government In fetching the ·villagers better standards of healthful living. Mrs, Phillips menlions, the fact that this club of 400 women has a membership of 14 nationalities. Art Treasures Inspected In Spain and Portugal, time was given mostly to seeing the rave treasurers of art, educational institutions, factories and churches. In Lisbon, they were guests of Ambassador McVeigh and the officers of the Fourth and Sixth ·Jeet.i. This concluded the continental tour and after.a brief stop at the Azores, they v.'cre back the States. Mrs. Phillips returned to Fayetteville and Prairie Grove, where she remained u n t i l January, when she left again by plane with 27 members of the Federation from other parts of the United States, on a flood will mission to South America. The trip, arranged by the U. S. Travel Service in Washinuton, was in cooperation with the Institute of Inter-American Affairs and. the State Department. Panama was the first stop, from there on to the nine South American republics. Mrs. Phillips says the greatest handicap was the language barriers, therr knowledge of Spanish and Portuguese being very limited. Noticeable to the visitors, she states, is the contrast between the rich and the poor and the new and the old. Canal Interesting Sight In Ponamn the most interesting; sight was the Cnnnl, a vast cn- ring projecl. accommodating up to 18 ship! a day. Received by President Arosemena and entertained by Mrs. John C. Wiley, wife of the American ambuBsiidor to Panama at the La Prado Hotel, the group then took a motor tour of Barranqullla, before leaving for Columbia, Bogota. Officers of the American Embassy, local members of the Woman's Club and Garden Club, cooperated in entertaining them. It was here hat they viewed the ruins resuH- ng from the Communist-inspired revolution in 1948. Cali, Colombia, was the next port of call and from there on tn Lima, Peru, home of the Inca civilization. They were told that Peru Is one of the countries where the Point Four program has been most successful. From Lima the party was flown to Santiago, Chile. This country is one of the most friendly toward the United States, they found. The Chilean government works In close harmony with the American Embassy in carrying out the Point Four program, ani English is a required subject in the schools. A side trip was taken from here to Vini del Mar oh the scaroast, site of the presidential palace, where they were received by Senofa Videla, wife of the president of Chile. After various parties and a visit to the Art Museum they returned to Santiago. Visit Argentine Capital The following morning they boarded a plane for Buenos Aires, the capitol of Argentina, re- knowned for its beauty. Argentina Is ruled by the Perons and- the delegation was first entertained at a luncheon sponsored hy Eva Peron. A tour of the city revealed up-to-date subways, numerous hospitals, homes for working mother! and numerous other institutions. Parks are scattered at intervals throughout the city. Mr». Phillips wes most Impressed with the perfection of the student city. President H. E. Andres Marline/. Trueba received the party in Uruguay, probably the most advanced country in South America in regards to public health r.nd sanitation. Mrs. Phillips reports that the delegates learned of a new system of government which was to be inaugurated there last month. This system, a safeguard against dictatorship, requires the election of nine presidents, who will rotate in the office. As one serves, the other ci^ht will occupy cabinet posts. Greeted By Frealdent She recalls the personal welcome e x t e n d e d by President Getulio Vargas of Brazil, on their arrival in Rio de Janeiro. Here t h p American is more popular than in most of the Latin-American countries, for relations with the United States have been close for a number of years. North of Brazil lies the country of Venezuela, the last country to be visited. After a 12-ho'. r trip across the Amazon j u n g l e , they landed at Carcas. They were royally entertained by the local club women, and visited the ieper's colony located just outside Caracas. Mrs. Phillips returned home in time for the district meeting of A. F. W. C., held in Fort Smith ast month. Following this mcet- 'ng at which time she was en- dorstd for president of the State Federation, she toured the Mate, attending-other diatrict meetings. She Is here now for a brief period before attending the state convention of A. F. W. C. la Little Rock this month.

Newsprint Said Potent Weapon In Cold War Eistnhowtr Points Out Needs; Report Is Being Prepared Br DREW PEARRON Washington -- General Kisen- hower has written prlviu letter to Sen. Hubert Humphrey, Minnesota Democrat, on the alarming newsprint shortage, h«illn| newsprint as "potent weabon" in the coM war. "The printed word Is * vital An outstanding flavor--Junft'i Roman Me«l Bread. 1 l-ll-tl Economical Sew-Simple link in the chain which unites free peoples in our common cause,' .iseni-ower wrote. "It Is, more- '·"-. p no'ent force In our cam- '· paign to place the .truth before the -j : .,cve peopie behind the Iron Curtain." Ike's views w'ere requested hy Humphrey, who heads a Senate subcommittee studying.the news print shortage. The committee has already drafted a report, not yet made public, suggesting publishers' cooperatives to increase newsprint production and construction priorities for newsprint mills. Replying to the senator from Minnesota, Eisenhower wrote on March )3: "Your letter speaks of newsprint as a 'bullet of the cold war, 1 I would go even further and label eepjr ef Humphrey's report, caiMlously suggests ru H«?IITS' r.- on. as "on of the ool-able and effective of securing an Increased production." The 1 report adds that two-thirds o f ' t h e dally publishers favor publishers' co-ops "for the purpose of producing and distributing newsprint." The report hesitated to make sn outright recommendation on exactly what priority newsprint mills should ke given in the defense scheme. However, the report emphasised: "The suBeommlttee can, however, draw mention to the fact that newsprint Is as much S munition at the cold war as bullets are of a shooting war. . . , Ab«ut M per cent nf the publishers think that priorities should be granted." Other conclusions that the report will mnke are: 1. "Importance--Newsprint Is a weapon In the b a t t l e for the hearts ind minds of men of u l t i m a t e v l r - 1 lory, it Is essential that we, too, ! possess and use the weapon .( newsprint." 2. "Freedom of the press--Many existing newspapers are forced to limit the amount of news thev will publish because of lack of available newsprint, and many «re unable to expand t"i*ir clrcula- :ion for the same reason. F.qusli: Important, the newsprint shortage virtually forbids the entry ol news publishers Into the field This Is particularly restrictive ol he expression of m i n o r i t y views.

"Government use--Although some publishers seemed to think t h a t the quantity of paper used by the government agencies was partially responsible for tr.e shortage, the figures do not support such a conclusion.
