"I hesilate lo say whether Dewey is a watered-clown version of Truman or the president is a watered-down version of Dewey." Wallace, currenlly on a speaking lour of upstate New York, con- lended lhat no Help should be given to China because its government is led by Chiang Kai-Shek, whom he called a "Fascist dictator." He said compulsory military Iraining would increase the power of the mililary and tend to destroy democracy al home. The former cabinet member said he I,would prefer to see the Republican parly nominate Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio for presidenl nexl year, rather than Dcwey or any other Republican, "because the issue of our foreign policy would Ihen be more clean cut." -. He said that if Taft and Presi- enl Truman were Ihe major parly nominees he would vote for Taft because "in foreign affairs he is Iht one most likely to take action most likely to keep the peace." . o A large city represents a concentration of iron, copper, lead and zinc rivalling the content of the largest mines.

Labor Trouble at Atomic Plant Is Settled Oak Ridge, Tenn., Dec. 11 -—(fP) — The labor dispute which had threatened to tie up production at one of the government's largest atomic energy plants was settled early today when the carbide and carbon chemicals corp.'and a CIO union agreed on a new contract. The company and officials of the United Gas, Coke and Chemical Workers Union reached agreement in two marathon negotiations meetings held immediately after plans for the first strike in the history of an atomic energy plant were shelved Monday by the union at the urgent request of the government. Under the new 18-month contract 3,000 production workers at the giant gaseous diffusion atomic process plant received a 10 cents an hour "across the board" wage increase and other concessions. Throughout a months-long dispute, the union had held out for a 25 cents an hour blanket wage increase. o For more than 200 years New England agriculture was a self- sufficient family enterprise.

Our economic and financial health right now will have n profound effect on what remains of the twentieth" century's, history. It can do much to decide whether the world is to have prosperity and peace, or chaos and war. That decision demands selfless, party- less, statesmanlike thought and action from the entire government. The need is for co-operation and a sense of sober responsibility, not for name-calling and finger-pointing. Standard Hikes the Price of Gasoline GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, Dec. 11 —(IP) — Corn .ed a downturn in grains today, dropping rather sharply at times following a slackening ,in demand for cash grain. Wneat and oats also were mostly lower, although the December wheat contract frequently displayed independent firmness. t Improved weather for harvesting and marketing crops in the mid- west also hampered corn. Late In the. session it was re- uorted from Washington that the House, acting as a committee ol the whole, had adopted an amend •rnent to the emergency foreign aic bill requiring a wheat carryover o at least 150,000,000 bushels. The measure was expected to be called up for final action ' later in the day. This restrained buying enthusiasm, as traders pointed out the wheat carryover this year was only 83.000,000 bushels. Wheat closed 2 1-4 lower to 1-2 higher, December $3.12, corn was 2 3-4—4 1-2 lower, December $2.60$2.59 14, oats were 1 to 1 1-2 lower, December $1.24 7-8—3-4, and I soybeans were 1 to 2 cents higher March $3.90—$3.89. Wheat held steady in the cash market today; basis about unchanged; receipts 17 cars. Corn was lower with the futures; basis unchanged to 1-2 cent higher; bookings 135,000 bushels; shipping 1 sales 00.000 bushels; receipts 72 cars. Oats were lower with the futures; basis steady; shipping sales 65,000 bushels; receipts 22 cars. Soybeans receipts were 17 cars.

Rails lost their rising steam. Activity quickened and quotations improved toward the last.

John Delaney, Hope THE STORY: It all started after I had been in Hollywood three months, writing the movin sctipt for one of my own mystery books —and letting Jeff Havcrson help me get over Oscar Craig. Jeff was director on my picture and a very attractive man. When Liz Le/de'i. my unpleasant collaborator, informed me vindictively that .left had been married for some time to Avis Vaughn, our glamor star, I was stunned. Jeff had beon searching for an actress who looked enough like Avis to play her sister in the film, but not finding one had cast Avis in both loles. That, day's rushes showed bit-player Madge Narney to be the perfect double for Avis. VIII "Don't ask me why I never noticed it before ..." Jeff bobbled. "Maybe because the two never played in the same Jjicturo before . . . Maybe because it's just a trick of lighting that's brought it out now. I don't know." I turned to get a good look at Madge, who was sitting almost directly behind me. The funny thing was that she and Avis didn't look, at all alike in the flesh. Madge's hair was . brown instead of\ blond, a pale brown with lots of golden highlights in it and she had the very white skin that usu- allv only redheads have. ..'.-.. Jeff came back down to earth and began to make plans. "\Vell, this means we make some changes. Bleach Narney's hair and give h«?r the part of the sister—we'll only take distance shots of her until the final scene where she and A.vis will both be in close-ups. Then the audience will find that they've really been seeing two different women instead of the same one. That should build up ta a whale of a kick. We'll cast someone else as the secretary." Avis Vaughn's blond head snapped Up from where it had been resting on Art Cleves' well- padded shoulder. "Wait a minute, Jeff." she said loudly. The honeyed accents her public knew were strained from her voice. Jeff spread his hands in a placating gesture, "Now, don't get excited. Avis ..." She bounced to her feet at that. "Don't get excited, he says. No, don't get excited. When you're cutting my part in half." "We're not cutting your part in hali.. The sister only appears in a few scones. Just let me explain it, might work for me." 1 The anger left Avis' face. Cun' nirig took its place. "So that's it." jr.ho said softly, and her smile [wasn't pleasant. "So that's it. You think of you make me bre^i" our contract, you'll be free. You'd like that, wouldn't you?" She laughed suddenly and ( turned nhd looked at me. Her I heavenly blue eyes swept me up I and down with a look that held more mockery than malice, as if she wondered What I Had to offer a man in comparison with her own luscious beauty. She laughed again and still laughing turned and walked out of the projection room. Morgan began to look unhappy. "See here, Jeff," he said. "We can't waste time and money while Avis puts on an act. I don't want production held up now. Better forget the change and go ahead." Jeff ran a hand wearily through his hair. "Suppose you leave this to me. Morgan. We won't lose any lime. I can handle Avis." His eyes met mine then and what I . knew must have shown unhappily on my face. His own changed. He said. "Come on, let's get .out of here." Jeff went around to my office with, me, not saying anything until we were inside and the door closed. Then he walked over to the window 'and stood, with his back to me so that I couldn't see his face. He said: "I'm married to Avie— you know that, don't you?" "I heard about it —today." He didn't ask who had told me. "It happened six years ago. when I first came out here from Broadway—" "You don't have to tell me about it," I said stiffly. He turned and looked at me then. His eyes were pleading. "Maybe I want to tell you about it." A hard lump crowded up into my throat and tears smarted my eyelids. The last thing I wanted was to let him see how I felt about him. I sat down in a chair and lit a cigaret and said coldly: "You don't live together, do you? Why don't you get a divorce?" "She won't divorce me. . ." He cat down on the end of the cushy davenport placed along one wall between the bookcases. He looked at me and then he looked away.. I gave him no help. Just waited. (.To Be Continued) o Man Seized for British-Soviet Trade Pact Has Been Reached London. Dec. 11 —•'(#) —The British board of trade announced today that 1 agreement had been reached on all the main points of a British-Soviet trade pact, now under discussion in Moscow. J. Harold Wilson British board of trade president who returned from Moscow talks yesterday, reported to Prime Minister Altlee today on the negotiations. He is expected to make a statement in the House of Commons later. Tass, the Soviet News Agency reported earlier today that agreement had been reached on all main points. British experts in Moscow will work out the details of the pact under the direction of Sir Peterson. Britain's ambassador to the U. S S. R. Wheat and timber are ttit pm, cipal commodities Hritf\in vi k from the Soviet. Union, while the Russians want steel rails, machinery, electric generating oqiiip. ment and other heavy goods from the British. Russian grain could reduce con-1 siderably the drain on Britain's dollar supplies and conceivably could mean an end to bread rationing now existing in Britain.

In addition to saving electric power, the newspaper Vorwaerts said it would prevent jamming the transport sys- slem by persons merely riding to keep warm. file SOMS fty cheers ^•w*i /* > s %i The Doctor Says: BY WILLIAM A O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service The Educalion Committee of the American Cancer Society has established a set of abbreviated cancer danger signals. Everyone should memorize these signs and symptoms: 1. Any sore that does not heal. 2. Any lump or thickening in the breast, or elsewhere. 3. Any change in a wart or mole. 4. Persistent hoarseness or cou^h. 5. Persistent indigestion or difficulty in swallowing. 6. Unusual bleeding or discharge. 7. Any change in bowel habits. In ils earliest slages, cancer produces no signs or symptoms Pain is seldom a sign of beginning cancer. In order lo shorten Ihe time between the development of symptoms and the start of medical care the American Cancer Society ur ges the public to act promptly in every instance. Warning signs may result from a serious condition. Sores or ulcers caused by cancer fail to heal because growth con- -tinues until Ihe cancer cells are destroyed or removed from the body. A lump or thickening in the breast results from the local growth of cancer cells into surrounding tissues and the development of sear tissue to resisl Iheir invasion. Warls and moles may be present for a long time without showing any change, but the fact that they suddenly start to grow indicates thai they are now cancerous.. Cancers of the stomach cause distress in the abdomen. Indigestion is always a symptom. Cough May be Clew There are several causes of persistent hoarseness or cough, but one of them is cancer of the larynx or lungs. In the former, local examination will usually suffice; in the latter, special X-ray and other examinations are advisable. Unusual bleeding or discharge from the body orifice may result from an ulcerated cancer. Change of bowel habit follows development of growths in the wall of the intestines. QUESTION: Are hair tonics of His words were lost in pandemonium. Avis began to screech that it was a conspiracy to ruin her— that the audience would dislike her as the suspect wife and give all their sympathy to Madge as the innocent sister. Art Cleves sounded like a bad recording as he repeated everything Avis said. Jeff kept arguing his point that fooling the audience would give the play-the'punch-it needed. Ben Morgan agreed with him. It was a merry little free-for-all. At last Avis gave up trying to get her way by oulscreaming everybody else. Her voice dropped two octaves. "All right," she said hoarsely. "Give the sister part to Narney. Give both parts to Narney and seo how far you get. I'm walking out. I play both parts or none." She thought she had Jeff there. Giving the lead in an expensive production to an unknown young actress might happen in a romantic fiction story, but it just isn't done by the hard-headed business men who make pictures to make money. And Avis knew it. Jeff knew it, too. But he didn't seem disturbed by Avis' threat. He looked at her coolly. "You're forgetting that little contract of ours, aren't you? It's two-edged, you know.
