Truman Also Raps Postoffiee, Treasury Bill Washington, July 1 — (IT) —President Truman today signed the $12,402,485,071 Treasury-Post office Appropriations Bill but criticized what he termed the "gross inadequacy" of funds provided for tax collection. "The administration of the taxing statues should •. riever 'be influenced by political considerations," Mr. Truman * said in a statement, 'adding: "People of all political faiths are called • upon to support their government through" the payment of taxes and are ! entitled to adequate administrative controls to insure that the dishonest do not thift their share . to the honest." The total for the two departments is about $883,000,000 -less. than Mr. Truman asked for;opera-' lions, in the fiscal year beginning today. But he objected specifically to a $20,000,000 cut which he said was made.in funds for the treas ury's internal revenue bureau. ' .-: • ._ 0 __—: FISH STORY New Haven, Conn., July 1—(/P)— State Rep.

Our army leaders should be called upon to explain what they have done with the unprecedented peace- lime rni i 1 i t a r y appropriations. There has been too much double talk." Short said that if the War Department's budget estimates do not "exclude" the posibility of'war in 1948; as Eisenhower testified, "then they, aren't doing anything to get ready.for it.." "Despite '.the. fact that <we passed a stockpiling bill last year," he said,-.Vine army.hasn't done a thing to obtain a stockpile of strategic materials that would be.needed in a war. We have appropriated the necessary money,' but" apparently all we have got for it is a lot of dreaming. What are' they waiting for? Another Pearl Harbor?" Allen called Eisenhower's statement "surprising." "What does he mean by a 'poor second? Does he mean quantitatively? Does he mean qualitatively.'" Allen asked in a statement. "If he means quantitatively, it might have been well for General Eisenhower to have pointed out that in manpower the United States Army never was the equal of Russia,'s in war or peace. "If ho moans qualitatively, I think the record of the United States Army in the recent war speaks more eloquently than any statements to a congressional committee. If the army lacks quality today, I think a further explanation' 'is, needed from the general. 11 "We. have appropriated more for the peacetime military establishment than ever before- in history and'certainly much more than any other nation has spent, x x • "What have .our military leaders been doing with'ail the billions furr nished them?. It seems that somebody;/ought to explain- how our army got into a 'second rate' posi- ilion — If it is second-iyjte — on more money and supplies than JRussia has: for its entire military establishment."

Prague, July 1 — (/P)— A spc-cial- Iv appointed commission, after a study of the Marshall plan, recommended today that Chechoslovakia cooperate in a program of European economic reconstruction with United States aid. The commission voted to advise the cabinet to authorize Foreign Minister Jan Masaryk to take action in line with the proposal of U. S. Secretary of State George C. Marshall. Masaryk, the commission said, should be instructed to inform the Soviet, British and French governments that Czechoslovakia is willing lo cooperate fully in creating conditions for the granting of American iad At the right moment, it added, Masaryk also should submit Czechoslovak proposals.

Earlier in the day it had hit 39.3 for the highest level in 103 years, then receded briefly following the failure of the Chputeau Island levee on the Illinois side, north of St. Louis. The Chouteau Island levee's collapse caused flooding of over 2,000 acres. Last night's downpour flooded many St. Louis streets and electric service to 2,000 St. Louis county homes was disrupted, The weather bureau reported a rainfall of 2.1 Inches aas recorded in slightly over'three hours. Traffic was stalled in many places and basements were flooded. The downpour, followed by less than 24 hours ohe of the most severe earthquakes ever recorded here. The quake, however, did little damage. Flood damage to metropolitan St. Louis was largely confined to the ,warehouse and industrial districts along 'the -waterfront. The retail district is on high ground, out- of reach of flood waters. The St. Louis district engineers' office estimated floods have caused damage of $8,741,000 between Louisiana, Mo., and Cairo, III., with a total of 333,000 acres inundated. About half of the flood area was under cultivation. Despite this upstream devastation, reports from Memphis, Tenn.,. said cotton chopping was continuing in the lower vailey behind massive levees which U. S. engineers confidently promised would hold the Mississippi in its latest rampage. G. E. WATER COOLERS DEMING WATER SYSTEMS DEVOE HOUSE PAINTS HARRY W.

The Mississippi reached a 40.1 foot stage here at 10 a. m. with the weather bureau 'predicting a crest of 40.5 this afternoon. The high water marks compare with a 39.14 reading recorded in the 1944 flood which has been the highest since the 41.39 stage reached here in 1944. Arrny engineers reported the new breaks would inundate 27,800 acres before the communities of Grand Tower, Gorham and Neu- nerl and 2,600 acres around Dupo and might overspread the big switching yards of the Missouri Pacific railroad at Dupo. An earlier break today in the vicinity of Nameoki and Venice, 111., just south of St. Louis, threalened to spread over 5,000 acres, but the towns were not endangered.

The government also announced that a supplemental allocation had been made for exports to occupied countries during July. Part of the demand for wheat was by shorts, and when it had been satisfied prices fell uack under considerable profit .cashing, improved weather conditions over the corn belt also was a factor in the decline.

She watched 'them -from the secure heights of one who was bound for a warm dinner, a bed with a cretonne cover, and' a writing desk of her own. There was a shoe-repair shop in the middle of the block and next to it a dry cleaner's. Very handy, she told herself, expecially the cleaner's. For when I get my blue. The blue was a suit that every woman in New York was trying to wear that fall. It was a 'bright electric blue that dulled the eyes and hair of all but the very young, and consequently drew the middle- aged and sallow like a magnet. Ruth dwelt on the blue. Seventy- five dollars in stores like Blackman's, sixteen-fifty on Fourteenth Street. She had eleven dollars saved up and her week's salary was untouched. Stie, asked herself what she was waiting for. Take out eight •for board, she figured rapidly, no carfares, and lunch in the cafeteria is twenty cents. I can do it and maybe a hat to match. And who's to tell me not to? This is a new life and I want to look nice. I can do the glasses next month. Who's to tell me the glasses come first? Well, maybe. Mrs.. Button, but — She put Mrs. Sutton out of her mind. I want the'blue, I need it. There's nothing like a touch of color after black all day....That Miss Brady said dinner was 'from six to eight. I'll cat right away and gst down to Fourteenth Street. Saturday night, they'll be open late. Iff.I wear it to the dining room tomorrow. There's nothing like a. good first impression and .you never know when you may meet somebody. Some of the girls may have relatives in New York and Sunday's when they'd come to call. And have dinner, maybe. Sunday dinners are always special....She saw herself entering the dining room, alone and poised, sitting at one ,vf the small tables, saying something pleasant to the maid who served her. Wearing the blue. The house was straight ahead. She went up the stairs. Miss Small raised her head when the door opened. This was a-stranger with a suitcase, therefore th." now girl. She consulted the card quickly, verifying the name. Miller, Ruth . It was important to get the name right, to make a girl feel as if she were expected and wanted. She stood up. "Well, Ruth," she said, holding out a hand. Ruth advanced, blinking in the light of a powerful lamp that a previous social worker had installed for a purpose. It was trained to shine directly in the shifting eyes of board-payers who had spent their money for new clothes and claimed their pockets had been picked again, and in the calm, wide eyes of supplicants for week-end passes to visit what' they called married sisters. Ruth narrowed her eyes and saw a young woman with fair hair and a bright smile. She was d ; rappoint- ed. It wasn't Miss Brady. Miss Brady was dark and thin and her voice was loud and comical. Who was this? Then she remembered. This must be Angel, Miss Angeline Small, the social worker who was Miss Brady's assistant. Moke and Poke, the two stockroom girls from Blackmans, had described her. Mis" Small does a lot of good, they'i? said; she keeps you from making a mistake that'll ruin your whole life for a minutes pleasure. She smiled at Miss Small wheti she took her hand. All around her were girls, coming and going, laugh ing and talking. Miss Small adjusted the light. 'There," she said, "that's better, i n't it'" It was better, buch better. She hp,d almost been blinded by the glaii, and now she looked eagerly about her. She could sue the other girls clearly. She saw the dark blue curtain at the dining-room door, the elevator and its uniformed attendant, the telephone switchboard and its oper- | ator, the girl with red hair who slouched against the office railing and whittled undei her bieath. There was a single yellow rose on the desk and an open money box filled with bills and silver. Miss Small had light blue eyes and a rosebud mouth. •Kitty Brice and Lillian Harris,' Miss Small's voice was saying, "this is the new girl, Ruth Miller She'll be in 706 with April Hooper. Lillian, I'm afraid you'll be late for work, dear. Are you waiting for something?" The red-haired girl drawled. "Not any more," She removed her ielt hat, cuffed it into new angles, and sauntered to the door. "Seven-o-six," she said over he; shoulder, "I'm in 606. Drop down some line." Miss Small went on. "Lillian is rather abrupt but you mustn't mind. And now, my dear, let's talk about you. Do you want your dinner at once or would you rather go to your room first?' It was a stock question and the answer was always the same. Room first. To pi-imp. A faraway look came into Miss Small's eyes. She had made that answer herself three years ago, when she stood where Ruth was standing now, and Monny had smiled across the desk. . A chattering procession passed on its way to the dining room. One girl stopped at the desk and asked for a tray check. "Who's it for, dear?" Miss Small wanted to know. "Not Minnie May again?" "Yes, Miss Small. Miss Small, I'd ask you to find me another roommate, I really would, except that I'd have Minnie May on my consciene. I think she needs my influence, I really do, and because of that I'm willing to put up with a lot. But it's hard on me." "I'll have a little talk with Minie May later. Didn't I see her just a minute ago?" "Yes, Miss Small. She came down with me, but she went right up again. She says the whole place smells of last night's fish. She's— well, she's in a state and it isn't last night's fish, either." When the girl went away, Miss Small suddenly realized that Ruth Miller hadn't answered her question. She examined her sharply and closely for the first time and was disturbed by what she saw. Why, she's frightened, she told herself. Or is that shyness? No, its fright. She looks as if she were cornered, or caught, or something dreadful like that. She looks terified. For a brief moment Miss Small felt the contagion of panic, but she quickly recovered. She rapidly scanned the lobby, but there was nothing unusual that she could see. The invisible diners chattered behind the blue curtains, as harmless as a cageful of sparrows. Mrs. Fister, the housekeeper, stood by the dining-room door calmly collecting the tray and guest checks. Jewel lounged beside the elevator, waiting for the after-dinner rush. At the switchboard, Kitty's bony hands darted from plug to plug, and her monotonous voice droned on without a break. Miss Small's eyes met Ruth Miller's for an instant and the girl looked away. She made a quick dewfiion. "I know what we'll do," she said briskly. "Here's your key, your room is at the rear. Now you run along and look things over.and when you're ready, come down to room 506. That's mine. I have a nice little suite all to myself. We'll have our dinners sent up there, and I'll tell you all about our little rules and so on. Fun? And you'll want to know about your roommate too. She's just gone in to dinnr/.-, but she'll be around later." "I have to go out," Ruth said. They were the first words she had The Doctor Says: BY WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D, Written for NEA Service When a thermometer is placed under the tongue, an average temperature of 98.6 F. is recorded. Many normal persons have a mouth temperature which is higher or lower than this figure. Temperature is lowest in the morning and highest in the late afternoon or evening. To record these differences most hospitals have a practice of making routine temperature observations in the morning on a fasting stomach before drink has been taken and between 3 and 5 o'clock in the afternoon. There may be a normal difference in these temperatures of one to two degrees. If either the morning or afternoon mouth temperature is higher than 99.6 F., the temperature should be taken every four hours —at 7 a. m., 11 a. m., 3 p m, 7pm. and 11 p. m and during the night if the patient is awake. Proper method of taking mouth temperature is to wash the thermometer with soap and water and rinse it with plain water or antiseptic. It should be thoroughly shaken down and placed under the tongue with the lips closed. Shows Body Reaction Commonest variety of fever results from an infection. It represents the reaction of the body to an invasion by the germs. Usually the higher the fever the better the reaction. When the patient improves the temperature returns to normal. Fever which follows a surgical operation or an injury results from the-abssorption of destroyed tissues by the body. Although fever may be a sign of serious disease, it is one of the most important aids the body has in fighting infections. QUESTION: After her thyroid QUESTION: After her thyroid eyes have become glassy, her hair dry, and her skin flabby. Is this due to her operation? ANSWER: She should consult her physician about her condition. If it is caused by too little thyroid secretion she can be given an extract of, the gland. If it is not caused by the operation, other treatments are in order. *»% Swab Cleans Up Smear of Mascara By ALICIA HART NEA Staff Writer' If hot weather, a tear-jerking movie or a sudden shower cause your mascara to run, there's a proven \techniquV for tremtoving these unlovely smears. Gloria ("Sport of Kings") Henry's trick is to swab off smudges with the cotton-wrapped end of an orange stick or match sti^, .moistened for the clean-up job, with, warm water. She says a match stick and the corner of a damp handkerchief will do as good a job. If you denude your skin of make-up when you rub off mascara smears, a touch-up with-the foundation that you use—it should be carried in your purse for just such an .emergency —will take care of the needed repairs. The trick of .touching up a skin successfully is ;to re-apply a foundation sparingly. Put new foundation over old in a wide area, and blend edges carefully to prevent the look of patchwork where the two overlap. After these repairs are made is when your face needs a good, allover -powdering. The prinpip.al reason why parents and children'are in a perpetual! conflict is because they do not bc- ong to the same generation and, :o paraphrase Mr. Kipling, East 's East and West is West and so ;s youth and' age, and never the twain shall meet. Fathers and mothers will bitterly deny this. They live in the hallucination that they are still youngsters themselves and that, at any rate, when they were boys and girls they didn't have the silly ideas and want to do the crazy things that their bobby-sixers and pipsqueaks do. As they recall their salad days, they were good little 1 guys who always minded Mama and Papa, and loved to spend their evenings at home playing tiddledy- winks or reading an Alger' book, and who no more thought of stepping out of an evening or using "ip stick than they did of embark- ng on a career of wild adventure Probably no such infant phenomenon ever existed, but parents think it did and that he or she was IT. That is why they have .so little understanding of their cildrcn and why they fight so incessantly and liopelessly with them. For few fathers and mothers grow up with their children and realize that the child world has changed even more than the adult world has. Divergent Opinions No parents would expect to squeeze their husky_ teen-age .kids into the Buster Brown costumes they wore in the nursery. They would be heart-broken if a son or daughter had so little intelligence that he or she never got above the third grade in school. But there arc thousands of devoted faters and mothers who, try 1 to wish a per,- petual babyhood on their children and who deny them the right to use eiter their brains or their muscles, or to develop any of the qualities of courage or initiative that they are going to need most in life. There is no other one thing over which so many tears arc shed and so many hearts broken as there is over the struggle that takes place between parents and children in the adolescent period, when the youngsters feel that they nrc cntitld to a little liberty and Father and Mo- spoken and they were thick and strangled. Miss Small nodded agreeably, but she left, the office enclosure and followed the shabby figure to the front door. "Some other time then,' she said. "But do take your key, slip it in your purse, dear. There, now you're really one of us!" She pretended not to see the shaking, fumbling hands and went on brightly. "And let me have your suitcase, I'll send it up to the room, and you'll 'find it ready and waiting when you come back" She carried the suitcase to the desk and shook her head reprovingly when Kitty Brice laughed. "Didn't want to give it up, did she?" Kitty said. "Hung on like a drowning man. Would you say she peddled diamonds or dope?" Miss Small smiled wryly. "Another odd one, I'm afraid." She sighed, and returned to her work (To Be Continued) NOTICE Beauty Shops will be open next Wednesday, July 2nd for appointments but will close Friday, July 4th and Saturday July 5th.

When Johnnie begins to sprout a mustache • he feels that Father should not ring the curfew on him, Mamie at 16 is boy crazy, but she .is not allowed to have dates. And the brawl is on that alienates parents and children and that makes the boys and girls, who Would like to be honest and truthful in their dealings with their fathers and mothers, turn into sneaks and liars. Much of the juvenile delinquency that we deplore is the direct res.ult of two things. The first is of parents not realizing that in an era in which everything else has been speeded up, age has also been speeded up, and that the average boy and girl in their tcehs arc as old, worldly wise and experienced as their fathers and mothers were in their twenties and are entitled to be treated as grownups moronic infants. f _< ( •> The second rdosort whjHgtt.,, „., boys leave home as soort as the can is to escape parental lyrkitf and get the freedom;without '"""" life has no flavor What we need aie parents lira grow up wilh their children A.* (Released by The Bell SyrfdldaWjg Inc ) ' , f (Jv. \j Army Enlistment Age of 17 Years Is Extended Washington, June 30 — (#5—R ident Truman today signed a extending indefinitely the army' voluntary enlistment age of I years and carrying other provision designed to stimulate recruiting. ,, The bill permits original enlist-',; ments for two, three, fou'r, fiVe Of,? six yeais and le-cnlistments f terms up to six years in the reg lar army Non-commissioned o. , cers could re-enlist for unspecified! terms and get a $50 bonus at' end of each year of their termS.
