A statement indicating the basis lor the dissent will appear, it was announced, in the second volume of the commission's report. Six volumes in all will be issued, under ,he general title "Higher Educa ;ion for .American Democracy." Today's report said that education for freedom, democracy, and world peace should become part of every phase of college life, including the school administration and outside activities, rather than be confined to a few. courses or departments. And. as for the number of students the commission said college attendance should be boosted to "a minimum of 4,600,000" by 19GO, compared wth 2,340,000 this year. A much greater increase, in proportion, was urged for professional and graduate schools. They should enroll 600,000, the commission said, instead of the present 175,000, to reflect "the increasing need of the nation" for such training. . . . , . Administrative jobs may need some 2,000,000 more persons .. in 1960 than in 1940. it was estimated; nearly 1,000,000 new teachers must be recruited and trained between lP!5fi and 1960 to match the growth of the population and the economy, and to overcome today's deficit; some 26.000 more doctors will be needed than the number now in sight, and the nation will need about 40,000 more dentists than were practicing in 1940. To accomplish such goals the commission said, it will be necessary for the federal government to "expand greatly" it-financial aid. Scholarships, fellowships and "general support" were mentioned but the commission aid it would offer specific proposals in later reports.

The price of bread under the new program will be 12 percent 'owcr than the old ration price. A 10 per cent cut will take place in cereals nntl macaroni. Meat, fish, fats, sugar, confectionery goods, nalt, potatoes and vegetables will remain at the present ration price. Citizens of Moscow received news of the rationing abolition with open joy. When the decree was broadcast and they realized its import, Russians slapped one another on the back and met in groups to discuss developments. The Russian worker has been apprised that the changes may cost him money, the announcement of the decree said that any monetary losses suffered by individuals under the currency reform were "the last sacrifices" which would be demanded of them as the result of World War II. • o Daily Bread Continued From Page One cizing, by inference, the Communists' tactics when they are in the majority. A Communist-Controlled government does not, of course, respect the rights of minority opinion. 5urh opinion, according to the Lenin-Stalin gospel, is expressed only oy wreckers and traitors. So the 'ommunist majority doesn't only steam-roller the opposition. It puts t put of business by execution, imprisonment, and other forms of liquidation. If Comrade Gosnat used this 8- year-old movie to justify his fili- bhster it must have been a case of his being damned if he did and damned if he didn't. The whole idea was contradictory and out of character, and it has caused us to waste altogether too much time trying to figure it out.

Balcony Sniper Shoot's Dancer London, Dec. 15—(UP)—Police reported today the case of a balcony gunman who shot an air rifle slug into the shoulder of a 21-year old blonde ballet dancer. Vera Valentine, but failed to disrupt the performance. Miss Valentine was shot Saturday night as she slithered into a split in the finale, of the "Ballet Parisienne" in a suburban London theater. The slug, she said, hit her shoulder with the kick of a mule. Blood flowed across her seciuin-studded brassiere and trickled down to the Hawaian snsh that covered her hips. All she heard, she said, was a faint "swish." Miss Valentine finished her ner- fprmance and then rushed to a hos- nital to have the pellet removed. Police searched the theater. They found no clue to the assailant, but deduced the gunman must have fired from the balcony. Several other members of the troupe also reported hearing swishing noises during the performance but none was hit. However, several pellets were found on the stage. Elizabeth, °Phi!!ip Tony and Friend Phyllis Buntiatfi. 10-year-old 4-H Club member from Kes- wic'k, Iowa, cuddles up to Tony,* her 1100-pound Hereford steer, entered in the 48th annual International Livestock Exposition in Chicago. More than 12,500 animals from 32 states and Canada, many of them raised by 4-H youngsters, competed: Monday, December 15, 1947 cal center, the two boards proposed to erect one building, adjacent to the present state hospital to be Used as a medical school and memorial hospital, with one wing to be constructed by the state hospital and remain under its supervision and control. The university board also proposed issuance of an unspecified amount of four per cent revenue bonds to finance that part of the proposed building to be used as a medical school. The resolution stated that such bonds were to be secured solely by revenues drived from 1 tuition fees, laboratory fees, library fees, etc., paid by students Who matriculate in the medical school. The legislature appropriated $1,600,000 for the memorial hospital and use of an additional .?800,000 anticipated grant of federal funds is contemplated. The state hospital proposes to use "such funds as may then be available, or which may thereafter become available." Today's Supreme Court opinion pointed out that Act GO of 1911, which created the old lunatic asylum, authorized the board to "receive, hold dispose of and convey all real and personal property conveyed to them by gift, devise >• or otherwise," and said subsequent acts have not abrogated that authority. "We think it clear that the hospital board had the power to make the property avalable to the university board for the purpose intended which will obviously be of great benefit to the state hospital" the court said, adding that: "The university board, through legislative enactments, also had the power to accept the site offered by tho hospital board and to erect the memorial hospital and medical school building thereon." In holding that the university board has authority to move the medical schoo, the opinion said it was admitted in the demurrer" that present grounds of the school are insufficient and that construction of a combined medical school buildings and memorial hospital will better enable the board to maintain the school according to the standards of the American Association of Medical colleges." n Deputy Gosnat was citing "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" the way Huey Long used to read pot- likker recipes during his filibusters. Maybe Comrade Gosnat was just killing time. In that case the Thomas Committee won't have to bother investigating "Mr. Smith," Mr. Capra and Mr. Stewart. London, Dec. 15—(/P)—Princess •Elizabeth and Prince Philip . were back in the workaday world of royalty today after 23 days of honeymoon seclusion. The youne couple stepped off the Aberdeen Express yesterday and were whisked away to Buck- 'neham ^alacp where they will live until their own quarters in Clarence House—an old mansion overlooking St. James Park—are ready for occupancy. For Philip, the end of the honeymoon meant a return tn his duties with the Royal Navy. Still on the active list with the rank of lieutenant, he was scheduled to take up a new post at once in the admiralty's operations division. Elizabeth will oversee the rcdec- nralion of Clarence House, which will take about a year. Thev royal honeymooners' re- iiirn tn London coincided with the Wnd 'birthday of King George VI which was observed with a family narty at Windsor Castle. The birthday is 'Celebrated officially on June 13—because the weather then is more propitious for public ceremonies traditional to the occasion. Little Rock, Dec. 15—(/P)—Construction of a new University of Arkansas Medical School building and a Memorial hospital on I grounds to the Little Rock unit of | the State Hospital was approved by the supreme court today. A unanimous decision affirmed Pulaski Chancery Court in the case of Edward H. Lindsay, a taxpayer, against Faber A. White, chairman of the state hospital board, and others, a test suit brought to clear up any legal obstacles to the project. The opinion reviewed the history of the state hospital, originally the Arkansas State Lunatic Asylum, and the university medical school, which began as' the Arkansas Industrial University Medical department, a private corporation. It concluded that "both boards have a broad discretion in the discharge of their respective trusts xxx we find no abuse of discretion here." Acts of the 1947 legislature made appropriations for construction of a war memorial hospital in connection with the medical school and for additional construction by the state hospital.

The union previously hart won a rlos^d shop. Shelton said the open-closed shop was not a central issue in the dispute. The general manager said that since the strike began last Monday, tho newspaper had hired "12 to 15" new typesetters. Union spokesmen would not comment on the settlement. The strike was called Dec. 8 when the typesetters demanded a wage boost from $60 weekly tn $72.50. The newspaper offered *67.50.

JORDAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Practically everyone knows that penicillin, while not a "miracle" drug, is extremely useful in certain kinds of infections. Penicillin is an extract of a common mold. It has the power of interfering with the growth and multiplication of certain germs both inside and outside the human body. One of the most interesting uses to which penicillin has been put is against certain infections involving the breathing apparatus—the Boy Polygamist DEAR DOROTHY DIX: I am living with my two wives and 1 certainly need help. At'the age of 17 I had trouble with my parents and left home and went to Another city where I met a woman of 50 whom I married on the common law plan. At the age of 19 I married a girl of 21 who worKs. and she came to live with us. The older woman knows how to handle me better than my young wife and she attracts me more physically, but I would rather be seen out with my young wife because she is prettier. Now the situation is getting out of hand and 1 do not know what to do, as I don't even know which woman 1 like best. I am now 20 years old. is the wife of a friend of ours, and now the top has blown off and everything has been brought out in the open. Her husband is much amazed and says he no longer loves her, but I still loVc my ; husband despite everything he has done to me. Is there any use in being- patient with him in the hope that he will some day come back? MRS. A.

THE STORY: It all starfed after I had been in Hollywood three months, writing the movie script for one of my own mystery books —and letting Jeff Hayerson help me get over Oscar Craig. Jeff was director on my picture and a very attractive man. It was a shock to learn that he had been married for some time to Avis Vaughn, our glamor star, and that she refused, to divorce him. Jeff wanted Madge Narney, who looked like Avis, to play her sister in the film, but the star insisted on doing both roles herself. Liz Leyden, my unpleasant collaborator, suggested a small party at my place that evening when he would try to talk Avis into changing her mind. On' the way home, I stopped at Rayella's shop to pick up the special lipstick she had made for me. Ravella had also made one for Avis and asked if I would mind giving it to her.

Liz and Art were one drink up on us when we joined them in the living room. Liz mixed highballs for us and we sipped them before we did much talking. It was Liz who finally took the floor. He began to tell about the changes we were going to make' in the script to build up the part of the wife. Avis objected once or twice, but Liz smoothed over her objections and began to paint a glowing picture of what a starring role this would be when we finished with it. I began to wonder • what was going to be left for Madge Narney. I was burning anyway. The way Liz talked one would have thought that I had nothing to say about the script— nothing at all.

Inhaled penicillin is of doubtful or no value for tuberculosis, pneumonia, and some of the other infections of the lungs or breathing apparatus.

Once they have given their hearts o a man, they cannot take them back again and no matter what a poor, miserable specimen of a creature he is, he is their man and they want him. And, curiously enough, the philandering husband, who falls for every pretty face and is just a worrian chaser, is far more apt to return ;o the wife he has been unfaithful to than is the man who wants to divorce his wife and marry another woman. The philanderer never:has .been any deep love lor any woman. ; He just wants to amuse himself, but the time comes when he gets old and needs care and attention and then he is almost sure to return to his wife and let her pet and coddle him.

XI Liz seemed to feel that the occasion called for a truce in hostilities and some slight homage to the social amenities. "Nice place you've got here," he observed in his thin voice. He walked over to the big studio window that gives a panoramic view of Hollywood below and took a look. "It belongs to Henry Osgood — furniture and all. I'm just subleasing it." "Yes, I know. I used to be up here a lot before Henry went in the army. He and I worked together." I offered him a cigaret and asked him if he'd like to mix the drinks. "I'm not too good at that sort of thing." He said, "Sure." When I started to show him the alcove with its bar he brushed me aside, "I know all about that little gadget." Of course, he would, if he had been around with Henry. The door bell chimed again and I went to answer it and this time it was Avis Vaughn and Art Cloves. I sent Art into the living room to join Liz and led Avis back to my. guest room. She sat down at the dressing table and began to touch up her face, although there wasn't a thing wrong with it that I could see. And that reminded me. "Oh . . . Ravella gave me a lipstick to give to you. I stopped at her shop this evening to get one she had made for me and happened to mention that you were going to be here." I went into my room and got the package. t "It's about time," Avis snapped. "If I'd had this today things wouldn't have happened." Superstition thy name is Hollywood, I thought flippantly —Ravella had said tho star would blame her for the day's misfortunes. Avis unwrapped the package Avis wasn't looking at. him, winked at me. I decided then to keep my mouth shut for the time anyway. He was buttering the bait for Avis. And she swallowed it. It wasn't long until he had her believing that to play the part of the sister as well as that of the wife would really detract from her big role. Then I suggested giving Jeff a ring and having him join us, "Since everything is settled." Avis bridled at this for a moment. But she gave in. While we waited for Jeff I went down to the kitchen and made some coffee and fixed up a tray with some crackers and sliced cheese and stuffed olives. It was the best I could do on the spur of the moment. the methods of using penicillin solutions or. powders by inhalation. There are now several ways of producing a fine spray which can be breathed down. Also investigations are being conducted as..to what conditions are best suited to this type o: treatment. .Many good results have already been recorded. How ever, it is still too soon to know definitely in advance which pa tients will be benefited by this type of treatment and which wil" not. . ANSWER: Any man who is living with two wives in the same house and at the same time certainly does need to send out an SOS call for help. A .wise man once said that no man could court two girls at the same time and preserve a good average, yet that would be no trick at all compared to keeping the peace between two wives, more especially when one is young and pretty and the other old and homely. Hard Situation Of course, H is done in the countries where polygamy is practiced and where the more wives the merrier, and the easier for the husband, for it relieves him of the necessity of having to toil and moil to support the family. He simply sits.down and lets his Georgians do it. I well recall a scene I once witnesses in North Africa. On a beautiful hillside, under a spreading orange tree, sat a handsome Sheik in immaculate white linen from head to toe, while he watched his seven wives carrying heavy baskets of fertilizer which ley spread upon the ground. Unfortunately for you, we have ot yet gotten the matrimonial roblcm so well in hand, as they eem to have done in Orient.

Of course, it has always been asier in every dime and every anguagc to get a wife than it is o know what to do with her after oil get her, and I regret extreme- y that I am unable to throw any ight on thesubject, or to hold out a helping hand to one who is trying o teach his two wives to love each ther.

THURS. starting LINDA DARNELL • CORNEL WILDE RICHARD GREENE-GEORGE SANDERS It was just after I reached the kitchen that the lights of a car flashed along th'e drive outside the kitchen windows and in their glare I could see the flower bed where my poor cat had died the night before. Then the lights went oil. I thought it was Jeff arriving and went on with my preparations for a snack. Liz Leyden came down and helped me carry the tray and the coffee op to the living room. Avis and Art were siNting on the davenport when we went up. Sil- iting close together. Art had his arm around Avis and her hair was all mussed. "Where's Jeff?" I asked, looking around the room. "He hasn't. . ." Avis began. But just then the doorbell rang and it was Jeff. Liz let him in. Jeff smiled at me and said "Hello" all around and took a second look at Avis, making some sarcastic crack about its evidently having aegen a rough party. Avis sat up and began to do things to her hair. So I didn't ask him until much later if it had been he who turned into the driveway 10 minutes before. We sat around and munched crackers and cheese and drank the coffee—Avis wasn't having any, she demanded a whiskey and soda instead—and broke the news to Jeff that Avis was willing to give- up the sister part. He listened rather quietly for him; in fact, later when I thought about it I fell that he had been preoccupied all eve- ing. But that's the trouble with looking back on things. In the-light of what happened in the next two hours everything inevitably seemed different.
