Republican opposition to Bicldle was reported to stem from his "New Deal" viewpoint. which some GOP committee members think should not be carried to the U. N council. However, a democratic senator who favors the nomination told a reporter he thinks the fate of the appointment rests on whether Chairman .Vandenberg (R-Mich) decides to go along, even if reluctantly. ' Vandenberg, who put an inform' Tuesday, May 13, 1947 al ./feeze order on the nomination while the Senate was battling over M peSldent's choice of David E.

Goods shipped under class rates mostly are finished, manufactured Herns, like clothing or shoes. Commodity rale goods 'make up the great part of all goods shipped by rail, .railroads get most of their freight income from them. Class rate goods are only a small parl — four per cent — of all goods shipped "by rail .Raill-oads get only six per, cent of their income from them. Not on commodity ratps, accord' ing to- ICC officials. They say: Generally, there's ho "substam tial difference" in commodity rates oh goods shipped between north, South and west. But the northerner does have an advantage over southern and western competitors on goods shipped under class rales. They're lower for him. It's cheaper for a northern manufacturer to ship, say, a case of shoes from one northern point to anolher northern point or from a northern point to a southern point than — e u, , manfacltiror in Ship his shoes from one southern point lo anolher southern point or •.U1 a ?£\! thcrn P° int lo a northern point.

The Doctor Says: BY WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Patients with high blood pressure will understand and accept their condition belter if they .bring'then- problems to a physician in whom they have confidence. As a patient acquires a better knowledge of his own case, he can cooperate more effectively with his physician. When high blood pressure is discovered in a patient, usually it is not wise for the physician to order a sudden change from an active Ills to a rigid routine in which there is nothing but rest, as this induces preoccupation with self. Most' patients do better if they arc allowed to continue their job, but alternating periods of work and rest are valuable. Special diets arc aimed at weight reduction (low calorie) or the control of the disease itself (Kempncr diet). There isn't any scientific reason for high blood pressure patients to ,sat less protein foods. Low salt diets should not be followed unless a physician prescribes them. Non-smokers live longer than smokers according to most statisticians. Smokers arc of two types, those who relax their tension with a pipe full of tobacco,' a cigar or a cigar.et after a meal and chain smokers who are excessive users of tobacco because they are nervous. Physicians determine the type of smoker before making the recommendation to stop or continue. Most patients with high blood pressure worry a great deal" and suffer with anxieties about their work and health. This keeps them awake at night and if they miss too much sleep, sedatives can be prescribed. Less Work, More Play It is quite a blow to the average man or woman to be told that they | have high blood pressure. They I have heard about th,2 consequences i of such a condition and imagine I the worse. Many of them do not , realize that thev have had high blood pressure for some time and that it may be many years before it begins to trouble tham. Moderation in everything should be a rule of the high blood pressure patient. It may mean less work and more play, less eating and drinking, more sleeping and resting, and th.o development of a hobby. QUESTION: My 16-year-old daughter .has a red birthmark on her arm which has caused her to be bitter. What can we do? ANSWER:._See a physician about |it and learn'whether it can be removed or destroyed. If this cannot be done,'it caivbe made less conspicuous by using special cosmetics. MONUMENTS Call or See R. V.

Says Having Babies Doesn't Hurt Women Chicago, May 13 — (UP) — A country doctor said today that a woman can have as many children as she wants Without injuring her health. A?'a matter of fact, he said, having babies is a health occupation. j_)r. Ernest E. Davis, in saying so,knew full well he was sticking out his professional neck in a sneech before the 107th annual meeting of the Illinois State Medical Society. "I cannot speak for all doctors, of course," Davis said. "B.it at least that has been rny experience. I can name at least nine women who have borne 12 or more children and are exceedingly well. I have never in all my years of practice known a case of serious illness due to bearing several children." Davis came to the meeting from Avon, 111., (pop. 800). He was taking sharp issue with a doctor who Wasn't there. Dr. N. J. Eastman of Baltimore recently recommended that women bo limited to a maximum of eight children as a means of reducing maternal mortality. Eastman, Davis said, maintains that a woman should be in perfect health at the time of conception. The Baltimore specialist argued that if that were true there would be a 25 per cent reduction in maternal deaths. Dr. Davis disagreed. "Good health," he said, "is a fine thing. But the real danger in both maternal and infant mortality comes at the end more than a he start. "The responsibiliy of this condition rests with the physician de- livnrine tHf babv Hoo« for im provcmcnt lies with better obslc- uics by the general practitioner, since ail infants can't be born in modern hospitals with a specialist in charge." Having babies in the country is best anyway, Dr. Davis said. Country women are a lot more healthy ti.an their, city sisters, he said. o Thorough Job When a Japanese woman laund- . ers a kimono, she rips the seams apart, washes the pieces and stretches them on .a board io dry.

Churchill's Conservative Group Takes a Slight Swing to the Left By DeWITT MacKENZIE AP Foreign Affairs Analyst Britain's conservative party, under leadership of former prime minister Winston Churchill, has made a surprising move which looks very much like swing to the left—a small swing, to be sure, but still a swing—in competition with the Socialist government's program. The Conservatives have issued a booklet pledging themselves to work for restoration of "a wide measure of freedom" to some industries which have been nationalized. However, they say they have no intention of restoring the bank of England or the coal industry to private enterprise, and add this provocative forecast: "We wish to substitute for the present paralysis, in which we are experiencing • the worst of all worlds, a system of free enterprise, which is on terms with authority, and which reconciles the need for central direction with the ® encouragement of fort." individual ef- general election which will be three years hence. ism in Britain one thinks of the return of the British royal famly yesterday from their Odyssey to South Africa. How does royalty, with its poinpt and splendor, fit in with Socialism? Woli. tho British public itself gave us an admirable answer to that. The king and queen, with ihe Princesses Elisabeth and Marj garet Hose, received a tumultuous normally welcome from hundreds of thou- the commonwealth. It \yas a tough job of diplomacy, performed1 : utl-' der circumstances which often were exacting, but the royol ambassadors delivered the goods.

The one-day closing of the several Fisher body plants supplying Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile and ponliac divisions, ran the workers idle up above Ihe 50,000 mark yesterday, but nearly half of these were back at work today. Remaining closed until next Tuesday arc seven Briggs Manufacturing Co. factories, six supplying bodies for Chrysler's De Solo, Dodge, Plymouth and Chrysler divisions, and one supplying Packard; • and Ihe conservative London Daily ! Express says the Conservatives arc making an elementary blunder in trying to fight under a Socialist banner. The Daily Telegraph, also Conservative, thinks the Conservatives aim at doing what the Socialists are trying lo do, only doing il better. While this move is surprising, il isn't al all illogical. The Conservatives are trimming their sails lo a wind whose direction was clearly evident in the last general election when many of their party voted the Socialist ticket England has been moving cautiously but stcadilv toward moderate Socialism for many years. We got striking evidence of this as far back as 1924 when the late Ramsay MacDonald headed the first labor government, which employed the terms "Labor" and "Socialist" as synonymous, just as is done loday.

Barrat Pride can be cither the greatest asset or the worst handicap that any human being can have. It depends upon the particular variety of it that one possesses that mates it a blessing, or a curse. It is like a potent drug that stimulates one to put forth every effoi't to make the best of oneself and one's opportunities, or else it deadens every energy and turns even those w'ho had the ability to succeed into failures. No other one thing is such an indication of character as pride is. If you will judge a man by what he is proju of, you will not go wrong in your estimate one time out of a hundred. You can use even so small a thing as his collar as a varrislick to measure him by.

A man may be loo proud lo lie, or sleal or- do any jnderhandcd and dirly trick to make money. Pride may'-keep a sorely tempered girl from dragging her skirts through Ihe mud of a sordid love affair. Once I covered, as we newspaper people say, n case in which two old women nearly slarved lo death, and their niece did slarve lo death, because they were loo proud lo ask Ihe help of friends who would gladly have given it lo them. Wrong and 'oolish of Ihem. of course, b*it Ihere was- n'l a reporter among us who didn't lake off our hals, as w'e wrole the story, lo those old women who would rather have died than beg. But if the righl kind of pride is a sword with which to fighl Ihe batlle of life, the wrong sorl of pride is a tinsel joy that breaks in Ihe hands of those who use it. And, oh, Ihev are so pilifully numerous! The men who are too proud lo work but not loo proud lo sponge on their friends and burrow money Uial Ihey know will never be repaid, or to lei their wives or Iheir molhcrs support Ihem. The men who would be good mechanics, but who arc loo proud lo follow an honesl Iradc bul nol loo proud to become bums and loafers. And still more pathetic are the hordes of women whose false pride makes Ihem slarve keeping up a pretense of prosperly thai they do nol possess. They are the women who take "paying guests," instead of running the kind of board' ing house lhat would make them rich. They are Ihe women w'hose false pride will nol lei them become dressmakers, caterers or housekeepers, or do any work that isn't "elegant," but which pays good money, because Great- Grandfather was in the Legislature.
