Western Allies to View With Caution DeGaulle's Proposal to Fight Communism With "Miracle on 34th Street," the new hit staring Maureen O'Hara and John Payne, and opening Sunday at the New Theater, Twentieth Century-Fox has let out all stops in bringing to the screen hilarious and heart-warming motion picture entertainment of the year. Combin- ig laughter and gaiety, romance and poignant sentiment, and photographed against one of the most unusual backgrounds ever captured for a film, the story by Valentine Davi-es, which was written for the screen and directed by George Seaton, and produced by William Perlberg, is being hailed by critics everywhere as a rare screen treat. For Miss O'Hara, "Miracle on 34th Street" provides a role in the lighter vein she last enjoyed in "Do You Love Me," and gives her an opportunity to display her exceptional versatility. The beautiful, titian-haired star appears as Doris Walker, cool and efficient personnel manager of the world's largest department store. But if during store hours, she is "strictly business," at home her composure is challenged by the problems of raising her precocious eight-year-olc child, and by the loneliness of hei divorcee status. It remains for an utterly unusual and amazing situa tion that arises at the store— a situation that engulfs her entire personal life—to catapult her into a dizzy, practically pixilated, new world. John Payne, whose recent por trayal in "The Razor's Edge' brought him wide acclaim, and wh was last teamed with Miss O'Harc in 'Sentimental Journey," is said ti give his best performance to dat as Fred Galley, a young and sue cessful lawyer. It is through his chance asociation with Maureen, that he becomes involved in the most unusual and hilarious courtroom battle ever dreamed of, and in an exciting romance to boot.

A Brand New Native Industry No. 1 among all the manufacturing enterprises sought by any city is ,that industry which depends on ujrCive raw materials and local management. Such an industry is Cobbwood, Inc., whose organization was announced today —a new factory which will take the sawdust and wood chips Of dozens of sawmills and other wood-working plants of southwest Arkansas and turn this waste material into a patented wallboard. Men in the wood industries here have for a long time guessed that .' the potential business to be gotten ;i fttam manufacture of such .a by- I product might eventually exceed S the value of the original lumber m industry. And now we are going to S?i ( find out for sure. (•!•? There are a thousand uses for a ;<& fabricated building product such i,'] as wallboard.

And now we stand a very od chance to see the miracle repeated in our own city and section. You have only to look over the list of Cobbwood, Inc.. stockholders to realize that the new venture has the united backing of lumber and mill men throughout our section—ranging all the way from Hot Springs and Murfrecsboro to Texarkana.

They are caught finally in the backwash of war which has almost paralyzed Europe's economy and just about broken the British back. But Sweden made some bad guesses on her own. One of them was to go along with the predictions and philosopny of United States Government economists in 1944-45 that the post-war world was headed for depression and unemployment. That made sense to the swedes. They had suffered from depression, deflation and unemployment after World war 1.

It is reasonably safe to minimize the threat inherent in Mr. Vishinsky's warning. Probably he does not mean that {Russia will resign from the UN. ^She will stay, not to co-operate but to sabotage. He means, we imagine, that she will boycott the Little Assembly, as she has boycotted the Balkan fact-finding and the Korean election commissions. He could mean, of course, that l| if the Assembly overrides Russia's ' objection to a Little Assembly, he and his associates will retaliate by refusing. to go along on anything else. Maybe he thinks that is what he does mean. But that is no threat ijaecause the Soviet Union hasn't *gone along on anything yet. Suppose the rest of the world refuses to give in to Russia's stubborn obstructionism, and in revenge, Russia refuses to agree to anything the rest of the UN wants. That, we imagine, would put the UN into a deep sla-3p that only nightmare noises would distinguish from death. But how would that differ from what we have now? In all probability Mr. Vishinsky is right. The UN's existence, in its original conception, probably aoes Depend upon what is done about the Little Assembly. If Russia can bluff the rest of the world out of so simple an action then the already futile UN will die. If the rest of the world goes ahead and at least tries to do something, then the sleeping beauty may yet be awakened. On one thing Mr. Vishinsky is wrong. Russia cannot kill the heart of the UN, which is international co-operation for peace. If she per- /jists in trying, there always is the Miternative proposed by Argentina's Dr. Jose Arce—to dissolve the veto : stymied present organization and immediately re-create it without Russia.
