Stlrhson in his wartime biography, "On Active Service," .Wrote that if he or George Marshal had been the American •> <jommandcr-in-chief "the invasion of France would have been launched in 1943, one year earlier than it actually occurred. , "Would the war have been ended ?ooner?" he corrected. "This Is a problem in a dozen unknowns. No certain answer is possible, and th mattet is her left open," But 'stimsdn declared that President Roosevelt's decision to lar^d an Allied force in North Africa in the fall of 1942 was disapproved at the time by Stimson and ihe American War Department staff. The first installment of his biography written in collaboration With McGeorgc Bundy of Harvard Uni- yeraity, appears in the January issue of the Ladies' Home Journal. Describing in detail the bfhind- thc-scenes maneaveting that forced postponement of Operation Bolero, the proposed Normandy landing,,in favor 'of Oneration Torch, the assault on Noith Africa, Stimson said: "TEhe Torch decision was the result of two' absolutely definite and final rulings, one by the British, snd the other < by the president (Roosevelt), "Mr. - Churchill and his advisers categorically refused to accept the notion of a cross-channel invasion in 1942. Mr. Roosevelt categorically insisted that there must be some operation in 1942. The only operation that'satisfied both of these conditions was Torch." But Stimson indicated that the compromise displeased both him and Secretary of Slate George Marshall, then the army's chief of staff. He became so exasperated al one time with British high level ob- leclions to the landing in France, .Stimson said, that he proposed to Roosevelt lhat "we turn our backs on them and take up the war with Japan." Buf Mr Roosevelt was not really persuaded, and the bluff was never ;ried," Stimson • continued. "At Casablanca in January, 1943, ;he British again rpfttspd to go ahead with any cross-channel operation in the coming year, and it was therefore agreed that the next great move would bo to Sicily." Stimson declared it wasn't until Mav of 1943 that Roosevelt took a decisive stand and forced Church ill lo agree to a Normandy landing for 1944. , "The nrime {minister finally accepted this po$l(iori, although 'part of his price was that General Marshall should be assigned to him for a tour of North Africa —ruefully Marshall remarked that he seemed ,to fce merely a piece of baggage useful as a trading point." Stimson ,snid he suspected that nis "wily English friend" really hoped therebv to convert Marshall to his view of making the Mediterranean the scene of the chief Allied effort, but that Marshall remained Unconvinced. .

"This policy," Herschel Duncan said, "has been one of the bulwarks of our business since its inception, and will contribute to the greater success of any business."

"Down to Earth," coming to the Rialto Theater on Sunday is the type of lavish Technicolor musical which raised Rita Hayworth to the ranks of the screen's most popular stars. Like its successful predecessor "Cover Girl," ''Down to Earth" gives Rita ample opportunity {o dance, sing and wear a startling array of gla- mor gowns. Fresh from her triumphs as a dramatic actress in "Gilda," which proved to be one of the biggest boxoffice hits made by Columbia Studios, Rita terms her return to musicals ''coming home." She first came to fame in song and dance films, and they retain a secure place in her affections. However, the actress doesn't want to get into a rut by repeatedly appearing in one kind of film. "I have a theory," she explains, "that audiences like variety, and so I hope to do dramas, musicals and perhaps a straight comedy occasionally. But I'll always return to musicals as long as the fans want to see mo in them." "Down to Earth," . which also stars Larry Parks, presents Rita in an excitingly different type of role. The part gives the star an op- porlunity to perform a cavalcade of the dance, and the routines designed by Jack Cole range from classic ballet to modern jive. As a matter of fact, Rita does several types of dancing which hitherto she has never performed before the cameras. Rita wears a large wardrobe of glittering gowns designed by Jean Louis, former associate of Hattie Carnegie. The fashion parade • includes classic Greek raiment, as well as a stunning modern wardrobe. Of the modern clothes, the most striking, perhaps, is a trim mink coat and bonnet which cost many thousands of dollars. Aside from several lavish musical production numbers, the film's most unusual sequence is one that was photographed at the Westwood Ice Palace, with the sets built right on the ice rink. This procedure was followed in order to community, and country, yourselves as well. but to insure which novel could technical effects be obtained in no other way. Garbed in a tunic of sheer chiffon that weighed precisely four and a half onces, Rita worked in the frigid temperatures of the ice rink for three weeks. It was uncomfortable, but the" star uttered no complaints. Not even When she ruefully glanced at her own scanty raiment and then at the director, producer and technical crew all done up in mufflers, leather jackets and flannel boots. Direct from his success in the role of Al Jolson in Columbia's "The Jolson Story," Larry Parks plays Rita's leading man. Larry had planned a vacation following the completion of the Jolson part, but Columbia executives thought so highly of his talents that he was cast in "Down to Earth." In support of the film's stars are Marc Platt ,who- dances with Rita, Roland Culver, James Gleason, Narney but says she is so bound Up in her career that she has no time for men.

"My agent had me committecd to the sanitarium because I had tried to kill myself—twice. He didn't want me to die, you see.

Darn Jef Haverson. Darn ev- to whom my heart had out seeking love or everybody ever gone friendship or just common kindness. It was always like this— it was always thrown back in my face.

Don't let Ivm pitv me. Make it a common- nlace story—the story of what hnn- oens to thousands of women: "T was in love wiih a man. I had been in love with him for a lone *>me and we had been engaged for a long time. But he wouldn't mary me until he was making MS much money as I was. Then the war came and he enlisted as a n"ot. He went overseas and was killed." I thoucht that would be enough. I thought he would 'be satisfied with thai. myself. He waited and he smiled a little deprccatingly and he lifted his stiff right hand in an awkward gesture. "Maybe this isn't a fail- comparison," he said softly. "A hand is just a little thing. But it helps me to understand. I was an artist— a good artist, people said, before this happened. I had a future, loo. Now I'm just a cop. Hunting down murderers." We stood there looking at each other for a long moment, and I felt my self-respect coming back. "Then you don't think I'm capable of murder just because I tried to commit suicide?" I said hoarsely. "Lot us say that I don't think you're any more capable of murder than the two men who were here that night," he said succinctly. "Anyone is .capable of murder under certain conditions." And so we were back to that. "What else do vou want to know? "How I said slowly. long were you sanitarium?" " c ix months." "There's a 1 w a s a in the cortnin In Ihe room behind me.

He said he was sorry to hnve given mo so rough a time. but. thsl there "•as nothing he could do aboul it. There was no doubt, he said, that. Avis Vaughn and Art Clevcs had died from poison and not as a result of the automobile accident. "They were dead — or dying, when their car plunged into the canyon," was the way he put it. And that, he said, was all the police knew for sure— yet. And so they had to look for motives in the backgrounds and in the relationships of Ihe people involved. And when they found the riant motive, they'd know who the killer was. The only trouble in Ihis case was that Ihere were too manv motives. For instance, he said, and he flushed a litlle when he said il, Jeff Haverson and I had had Ihe same motive. • ; • - = j . -: 1 1 $p : Be, DOROTHY DIX Asking for Trouble Sunday School Lesson Scripture: Revelation 21:1-7, 22-27 By WILLIAM E.

If the saints had believed that, they would not have had the faith or the courage to defy him. It was to confirm them in that faith that the Book of Revelation was written. It is a Book full of mystery, with imagery and symbols to which those for whom it was written had the key. But if portions of it now seem difficult, its message as a whole is clear and plain. In noble and beautiful' passages, such as those that constitute this, lesson, it sets forth the truth concerning God's eternal rule, and the triumph of the faithful in a world of.light and life and glory. But we must catch the note of eternity, as. well as of rule, if we would understand this message. There is a verse of a hymn that says:. "God's purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding every hour. The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flower." That is in a hymn concerning faith and doubt in relation to God's providence. It is well meant, but I do not think that it is quite sound, or wholly true. Some purposes of God do ripen fast and are easily apprehended, but not \all. There are purposes that ripen slowly, and about which there is a timelessness. A constant insistence in Scripture is _on the need of patience. Jesus spent many years of preparation before His real ministry began. Paul had many silent years, some in far-off Arabia, before he felt ready for his missionary journeys. No man lived nearer to the purposes of God, and, at first at least, they ripened slowly for him. God's rule is eternal. It is not of passing pomp and power, like the rule of men. It is not always easily perceived in the short or narrow vision, but, in the long processes of life and history, the providences and judgments of God that mark His eternal rule are unmistakable. The world is strewn with the wrecks of the earthly empires of rulers who defied the living God, while the blood of the martyrs is still the seed of the Church. The Christ is still conquering, and God has plenty of time to fulfill His purposes. o Member of the Associated Press: Th> Associated Press is entitled exclusively t< the use for republication of all the loco news printed in this newspaper as well o nil AP nnws dispatches. in every way. Can you give me any suggestions about how I could help make the arrangement a success? MRS. E. H. ANSWER: You certainly are taking a desperate chance when you enter into an arrangement that combines a wife, a husband, a mother, a teen-age girl and business, the five greatest risks that can possibly be taken by any adventurer. And if you come out of alive, it will be little short of miracle. Why relations find it harder to get along with each other than they do with strangers is one .hing that is hard to explain, but it always exists. However, kins people take liberties . with each ather that they would not think of taking, with anyone else. They feel free to criticize each other; to tell each other home truths that cut to the quick; to borrow money that they never repay; to wear each other's clothes; and they almost universally scorn to use any tact or-forbearance in dealing with each other. Difficulties Aplenty All of these difficulties you are going to encounter when you bring your mother-in-law and the year-old bobby-soxer into the picture. Your mother-in-law will feel that she has a greater authority over your husband than you have, even if he is your husband. And the bobby-soxer is at the age when she will be crazy about boys and going places and doing things that you won't approve of. So there you are, and you had better take all of these things into consideration before you undertake to live together. My earnest advice to you is to make the arrangement a business one between you and your mother- in-law. Don't say to her vaguely that, of course, she will share in the profits of the business, if any. Give her a definite salary, as you would give any other employee. Goodness knows, she will have to work hard enough to earn whatever you can pay her for taking care of a baby and a small child. But the point I am trying to make is, have a hard and fast business arrangement about what she is to get, what she is to do, and make an iron-bound vow to take no part in the management of the young girl. Leave that up to her mother, for it is the only way in you can keep out of each other's hair. Theoretically your plan of taking your mother-in-law in as a sort of partner is fine, but you are going to have to be a pin-feathered angel to make it work. in T5iivononr> roiintrios.

Edward Everett Horton, Adele By EDWIN P. JORDAN Written for NEA Service Dandruff, which is also called dry soborrhea or seborrhea sicca, is most common on the sca^p, but can occur on other parts of the body. It is characterized by tho formation of fine, slightly greasy, white or gray scales, which are shod freely whenever the hair is brushed or disturbed. Slight itching is frequent. The condition occurs about equally in both sexes. A family tendency to dandruff is recognized and is often associated with early baldness. A definite causative germ or other living organism has not been discovered, though there is much to suggest that some kind of infection may be at fault, at least in some cases. It may follow exhausting diseases. Dandruff, a mild condition in itself, has to be distinguished from more serious diseases of the skin. Its treatment involves both internal measures and external applications. Iron is advisable when anemia is present; cathartics may be needed if there is constipation. Sometimes people with dandruff nre bcnofittecl hv takine arsenic preparations, cod liver oil, tonics and nutritious fond. Open air exercises and sunlight are often helpful. Scales Removed Tho local treatment of dandruff involves first the removal of the crusts and accumulated fatly material and. later, the use of stimulating applications. The removal r.f the crusts and debris at first may be accompanied by the loss of a pood deal of hair. Sulphur, resorcin. salicylic acid and mercury preparations are frequently used in the form of ointments or lotions, after the initial removal of the scales.

VAUGHN Tokyo, Dec. 26 — (UP)—Former Premier Hideki Tojo, who failed in an attempt to kill himself two years ago, told the Far East war crimes court today that he alone was responsible for the Pearl Harbor attack that launched the Pa cific war. Tojo asserted he was innocent of any criminal responsibility and at tempted to shield Emperor Hiro hito from blame for the blazing Pacific war that cost 1,000,000 Al lied lives. Unpenitent, the former Japanese warlord smiled confidently as, he stepped to the stand. He was dressed in a khaki Japanese Army uniform. The man who ordered the Pearl Harbor attack told his story in the form of a 60,000word affi davit. "I firmly believe and will con tend to the last that the war was one of self-defense and in no manner a violation of international law." Tojo said in his affidavit. "Never at any time did I con ceive that waging this war could or would be challenged "oy the vie tors as an international crime or that • regularly constituted officials of the vanouished nation would be charged individually as criminals. "As to the responsibility for de feat, I feel that it devolves upon myself as premier. The responsi bility in that sense I am not only willing but sincerely desire to ac cept." In hh affidavit. Tnio made every attempt to shield Emperor Hiro hito from blame for th" war. "The entire responsibility rests in effect upon responsible persons in the cabinet and in the supreme command,' he stated. The blame fo>' war wi(V"><it warn ing, which made Pearl Harbor a svnon"m fo'- trea-oherv. Tojo placed upon diplomatic officials. "I conscientiously believed at the time that delivery of our notifica tion of war was made, according to the foreign minister's (Yosuke instructions," the affi but natural for us to place full faith in our diplomatic officials in executing f> function of such vital importance." T'vjo nlso tried to evade responsi bility for executing Allied prison <;rs. including captured a'^rnpn. He said he assumed responsibility tor the laws affecting war prisoners but added that Japan never had ratified the Geneva protocol, "The Japanese conception re carding prisoners of war differs from that of Europeans and Amer leans.' the affidavit said. Listening to his attorney, Tojo laughed and smiled and appeared in the highest spirits as he v.-aited his turn to take the stand.
