France not 1 only booted out the 12 members of the Soviet commission on the ground of "subversive activities in France," but recently xpelled 19 other Russians on barges of interfering with the French strike situation. Russia, in ancelling the trade talks, bitterly ceased France of "hostile" ae- ons, and declared that the Soviet overnment "holds the French overnmont..- responsible for the onsequences." France's Internal crisis, how- ver, eased materially. The French General Confederation of Labor — rtrlch is dominated by the CommU- lsts—ordered the 2,000,000 strikers ack to work today. This was in re- oonse to a government ultimatum 0 the strikers to get back on the ob by today. The capitulation ame-after the Communists had de- lared; their intention of defying the 1 dor. In short, the Bolshevists acked SOwn, and the chief rea- ons were two: The strong and ag- ressive attitudd of the government, and the' heavy dropping off f support for the Red program by ic rank and file of French labor. In Rome, too, there was a slight asement when the Communist-led Chamber of Labor cancelled its ul- imalum-'to; jnaugurate a general trikd in' the Capital and province" unless ,the government acquiesced n the' Red, program, However, her,e were fresh disorders in Sic-, ly, and the position of the country as a whole remained grave. All in all, the situation in western Europe was rather brighter for democracy. French Strike Continued From Page tm« was here to stay. The most hopeful feeling was that the present kill would continue at least until after the first of next year. CGT leaders issued a 2.000-word statement calling for strengthening of the unions for new struggles. It said many workers went back to work "with death in their hearts" and because they were hungry. The government said many of those who went back to work before the strikes Were called off did so because they had become convinced the Communist leadership was using the strikes for political purnoses. (Robert A. Lovett, U. S. undersecretary of state, , declared in Washington last Friday that the Communist-led strikes in both France and Italy constituted an ''extension of Soviet foreign policy.") The work stoppages, which be- ean in Marseille on Nov. 12, cost France: (1) At least 45 dead and hundreds, perhaps thousands, of in- jared': (2) Uncounted millions of francs worth of coal and steel an other production. They also forced a change in the government and resulted in exchanges of harsh Words and actions by France and the Soviet Union. , RUssia and France yesterday expelled each other's repatriation commissions and Moscow broke off trade negotiations, costing Frenchmen their chance for getting 300,000 tons of badly needed Soviet Wheat. France accused the Rus-- sian repatriation commission of engaging in ."subversive activities." The French reported 19 Soviet citizen's on Nov. 25 for "interference in French affairs" during the strikes. The Russians protested this Doily Bread Continued From Page One es, instead of thundering a lump sum of billions and leaving it hanging in tho air, he may have a more attentive audience.

Molotov to lift the curtain on affairs in the Russian occupation zone of Germany. U. S. Secretary of State Mar'—| shall and his advisers are reported to be contending that unless Russia furnishes information on conditions in their zone, it will be df- fcult, if not impossble, for the Council of Foreign Ministers to arrive at substantial agreement on German unification. As today's Big Four session opened, western diplomats said Russia's demand or $10,000,000,000 reparations from Germany, largely [fom current production, may well oe the issue that could break up the conference. This view apparently is behind western represnta- tives' efforts to draw from Molotov an explanation of his statement that the question of reparations and German economic unity could be considered simultaneously.

THE STOHY: It all started after I had been in Hollywood three rnont.hs, writing the movie script for one of my own mystery books —and .letting Jeff Haverson help me get over Oscar Craig, Jeff was director on my picture and a very altractive man. So when Liz Leyden, my unplbasant collaborator, informed me vindictively that Jeff had been married for some lime to Avis Vaughn, our glamor star, I was stunned. VII Liz stood Ihere cackling laughter at me until his ugly face turned a vivid red. 1 "Get ojl." I hissed. "Get oul!" He got out then but nol before he managed to get across a smug feeling of self-satisfaction at my dismay.

Dec. 10 — (IP) —Republican con-gressional leaders agreed today on a four-point anti- inflation program for enactment during the present session of Congress. Senator Taft of Ohio, chairman of the Senate Republican steering committee, and Hoase Republican Leader Halleck of Indiana, announced Ihe program provides for: . I. Voluntary industry-wide agreements to hold living costs in .line. Anti-trust laws would be set aside temporarily by such agreements, and the administration would be given money 'to promote such a program. . 2. Continuation and expansion Of export controls. 3. Increase;; from the present 25 per cent to 40, per'cent the gold reser.ye.s, required'^behind currency issues, oy federal 'reserve bdnki; and increase from 25 lo 3.) per cent the gold reserves that federal reserve banks must carry to support the deposits of commercial b;mks. 4. Controls over vital transportation facilities, such as boxcars. The Republicans drafted their program as a reply to President Truman's request for broad powers to resume rationing and price controls if the administration sho.ild decide they are necessary. A draft o.f a bill covering most of the president's request was presented by Secretary of Commerce Harri.ynan yesterday to a Senate judiciary subcommittee, but Re- Dublicans have made clear that Instead of answering him Jeff called to the operator, "Ran"it over again, Mac. . .."

Wolcott lold reporters he plans to hold hearincs on the bill tomorrow and said they should nol lasl more than one day. Taft and Halleck announced the plan following n meeting of Senale and House GOP loartors in Ihe of(ice of Speaker Martin. Thev said (hey hope that the single bill can be enacted in lime to permit Congress to adjourn on Dec. 19. About the time this meeting was breaking up on Ihe House side of the capitol, the Senate Banking Commitlee approved one poinl of the president's anti-inflation program — legislation to restore limit- door, from the standpoint of leadership, against action on the the measure approved by the Banking Commitlee. The House will consider bolh the appropriation and the economic bi.ls first, Halleck said. Allending the conference besides Halleck. Martin and Taft were Senators Cooper of Kentucky and Wiley of Wisconsin and Represenl- alives Taber of New York, Michener of Michigan, Arends of Illinois, Brown of Ohio and Wlgglesworth of Massachusetts.

For it must be a mortifying experience to a husband to have a wife who is so bored with him that she has to turn td other men to put a little pep into her life. Certainly there is nothing more cynical in all the upsiand downs of married life than ,that so many husbands should spend their days toiling like slaves to provide their wives with expensive beauty treatments and fine clothes to use'to attract other men. Yet We see it being done about us every day, But if the philandering ladies think that they befool the public into believing that they mean no harm and are just having a bit of clean, innocent fun, they afc vastly mistaken. For a wife is either true to her husband or falste'to him:'She either loves him, or,she has no affection for him. Hb is cither the center of her W.orld^ o»' he is entirely outside of it. There is ho middle ground for her in which- she can play about with strange men and take their kisses and caresses and gifts and still be a faithful wife. Only Belittle ^Selves The married woman who:thinks she can indulge in i little extra-marital affairs without being found out befools herself. There was never a love nest built so hidden-that some spying eye didn't discover it. Nor do men feel called upon to protect the name of the woman Whs throws her hat over the windmill. And as for a wife saying sho won't go too far with her flirta- nonsense. She can ne- herself to stop. There tions, it's ver bring are no little sins for women. The end of the flirtatious wife's little game is almost invariably the divorce court. It is a terrible price to have to pay for a few thrills and a sordid adventure.
