Here come the Russians with an offer to rtturn 186 vessels (hey got from the tJnited States during World War II. including a bid to buy 167 others the holds. The Soviets jrot from this country during the war 11 billion dollar* worth of sup- pllei, including 670 ships--and (he United St»t« has offered to settle for 800 million dollars. The Reds have offered a 300 million dollar settlement. This is the way the Kremlin explains the 670 ships: 146 have been scrapped or otherwise lost and 171 nre unfit for navi- Kation. Tht Russians offered to return 186 and buy the remaining 167, but the United States said no, (ho ships aren't for sale, and please return all Ihe ships left. In their offor to return 186 of the ships, the Soviets hflve*8Ufrgested the vessels hi delivered tn some foreign port npsr the Soviet Union. They may be ready for delivery in four or five months. All are small naval craft--10] torpedo boats, 15 infantry landing crnft nnd 70 submarine chasers. What has the United States puzzled is what on earth is Russia doing, trying to (rive back some of the ships she borrowed? We aren't used to gestures of this kind, and judging from past activities of the Communists, we have every reason to suspect there's something amiss somewhere. Like some people over here, th* leaders of tn« Kremlin seldom tak« any major step without an "angle"; and this country would like to understand just what the »ngl« for the Russians is in this deal. Since the offer was made by the Rus- »i»ns, we'll bet there's something in tt for them, nothing in it .for America, and whats more, the terms suggested in the first place won't be mot .even if Washington says "we'll take it." They're "Afraid" It was * little storv in yesterday's run of Associated Press wire copy, but it held bljr meanings. Dated Copenhagen, it told of four Danish Air Force fighter pilots who had experienced considerable training in the United States, who were dismissed from the service because they said they "were afraid" to fly jet planes. Shades of the Danes of the past! What is the modern world coming to? Has it reached (ho point where a trained fighting man ran say to his povprnmcnt (hat. he is afraid to do something or other and thus he let out of service? Taft says Truman would he the Democrats last resort" as a candidate. That snould make those two sort of colleagues. B « charitable » n d indulgent to ev«rv one but thyself.--Joubert.

Dut at the age of 22, I feel hat I haven't accomplished much, am employed in a department ore in a very small town. My rmer classmates have either married or are away at school. While I am not contemplatin» marriage at the present time, I sense the lack of eligible men in my home town. I definitely am not satisfied or happy in my present position. I have been tempted to enlist in the women's military service. In that way, I feel that I can broaden my education and meet people my own age. Yet I hesitate to take so important a step as, after a l l , it would mean four years from m y ! life. Perhaps you ran help me i make a decision as to whether 1: should continue in my present iob · or try a new life in" the military ' service. " ! F. C. Answer: You give an impression of hopelessness to your future t h a t certainly is not justified in an attractive, intelligent girl o f , 22. However, I cannot recommend either of your alternatives as a . solution. | Being so unhappy in your pres- j ent job, which certainly doesn't seem to offer much chance for advancement, docs indicate a change in surroundings. Yet your attitude and reasons for considering a career in military service are not conducive to a successful ouliook "lere. Such a step is not one to be I iken merely as a stop-gap or as i possible solution to frustration. I The opportunities for girls in i the military seriice are varied, i ·nd fine for those equipped men- I telly, emotionally and physically or them. A mere desire to "get j away from it all" is no reeom- demands the best a woman can j offer. If you could change your ideas and develop a broader con- ' cept of its possibilities, such work ! would be good for you. I But why should you confine! your future potentialities lo ihose I two choices ? The world is ahead of you lo he conquered--not t o ' conquer you! There is no necessity i for you either to resign yourself to a hopeless present or accept an i | make you mentally lazy sn d i physically inefficient. Make a 1 fhange; don't be afraid to tackle | something new. Your assets are worth more attention than you give them. Youth, attractiveness and intelligence should open any ' doors to you--provided you combine them with a pleasant rti- ! position. You should be f u l l o f , hope for your life ahead, not ju.n ; resigned lo accepting what comes '. along. You must, however, put some effort into creating happiness and success; they don't happen accidentally. Scrippj-Howard Papers Support Eisenhower New York-l/l'l-The 19 Scripps- Iloward newspapers today endorsed the presidential candidacy of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. ' In its lead editorial, the New York World-Telegram and Sun, one of the Ecripps-Howard group, said the papers had decided by a · vote of editors to support Eisenhower. The editorial urged the Republican Party to nominate him. "We like Ike," the editorial said, "because he is.a natural and inspirational leader. He is great man not only in America but throughout the world. He has . wide and unique experience in dealing with the problems of peace and war. He has demonstrated rate administrative capacity. . He radiates hope and contagious confidence in America." l'lljl Tpllt 1118 IC "' | Buenos Aires. Argentina-«P-.
