' The action was filed here, by Special Assistant Attorney General Eugene Warren, Little Rock, •' who also is directing the state's <j i"ight against an abandonment petition filed by the M. & A. owners with the Interstate Commerce Commission.

The -strongly worded petition charged that the "railroad can be opcr'aled .at a : reasonable profit under proper management by persons who dCRirc said operations to be s.iccc-isiul, are sincere in their effort.'; to serve the public, and will not attempt to.strip the road for personal benefit." The receivership action was' filed by M. P. Gross and Saul Frankcl against the railway company. Gross of New York City, appeared in the ICC hearings in Little Rock and testified that Tie and his associates were interested in several railway properties both as operators and for salvage -purposes. The state's netition charged that the stock in the M. & A. corporation was owned by Gross and Frankel and their associates at' the time the receivership action Was filed before Judge Miller. Gross testified in 'the Little Hock ICC .hearings .that he and his associates had acquired the properties from the heirs of trie late Frank Kell, Wichita Falls, Tex., railroad man, following the shutdown last September when operating employes walked out over a wage dispute. The petition charged that "plaintiffs began negotiations to purchase the common stock of said defendant corporation in October of 1940 prior to the .filing of an application to abandon operations of said 'company." . : ' '.....'

Spanish War Vets Duel Over Woman Washington, May 14 — (UP> — Two aging Spanish war veterans wore nursing .sore heads 'today after a duel with their canes over a lady fair. One nf them was being hold for a j.iry trial on an nssault charge. I It all happened because one ofj the oldsters was an xinwanlcd chap-; cnjne when the other veteran and his lady friend were taking a street car ride and walk. John L. Cook. 07, tall and spare, appeared as the aggrieved parly. lie complained in court 'that he had taken Mrs. Leona Huff, jige not given, on a streetcar ride near the soldiers home where both he and his antagonist .live. Cook said ha had not paid any attention to Emilio Count Capolo, 09, shorter and huskier than himself, on the streetcar. But he said ho began to gel annoyed when Capelo followed them down the street. Bolh old soldiers walked with canes. Finally Cook turned and asked the uninvited chanerone whal he was doing there. Capcto.. he said, thereupon advanced and ranccd his cane sharply across Cook's head. Cook whipped up his own cane and the two went to fencing lustily, with Mrs.'Hoff looking on until Police Pvt. Gill Southcomb arrived on Ihe 'scene. Xh.cn according lo Soulhcomb, Capcto dropped his cane and landed a stiff right in Cook's left eye. That ended the fight.

HERNIJON (Annie Laura) IN A" WORLD gone slightly "haywire," this is no time to start cutting down the sturdy oaks of experience, ivisdom, understanding, courage and constancy of purpose. Medical and Scientific men and •women have spent many long years building strength into the structures safeguarding health services. Education and qualification of Physicians is closely checked; stringent examinations must be passed before a Doctor is allowed to serve the public. Hospitals are supervised, and graded according to services thty are equipped to render. Every new medical idea, every new drug, every new appliance is tested for public protection, by various groups within the American Medical Association. VOLUNTARY Plans for prepaying Medical and Hospital costs have the approval of Medical and Hospital Associations, after years of careful testing. These plans are NOW available to some 100,000,000 workers all over America, Ask your Doctor. C, MR. & MRS. CONSUMER MR. SHIPPER & MR. FARMER MR. & MRS. PASSENGER ; Look out! There's another big railroad wa ge demand headed your way! The non-operating unions alone —whose members do not actually operate trains—are demanding a ilat increase of 20 cents an hour. These demands would cost the railroads of the country five hundred sixty-eight million dollars a year! Last year these employes had an increase of IS 1 /;, cents an hour. This was (heir third major wage increase since 1939. Their average weekly pay has gone up 75?o, as against a cosl-oi'-Iiving rise of 54%. . , Since 1939, railroad wage and material costs have gone up more than three times as much as freight rates, and five times as much as passenger fares. That is why in 1946, with the largest peacetime traffic in history, the net income of railroads went down to the equivalent of only 2?;i% of the net property investment. What About 1017? Even with the recent freight rate increase-, preliminary figures indicate that the railroads will make only about the same low return in 1947 as in 1946. This will be because: •—the wage increase made In 1946 will be in effect for all of 1947; —special payroll taxes on railroads have recently been increased; —and passenger traffic has declined.

UNUSUAL INSTRUCTION Oklahoma City, May 14 — (/P)— Scout car officers were pondering these instructions from the chief today: "In case you're involved in an accident, call a policeman." The Doctor Says: BY WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service The effect of tobacco varies in different persons and in Ihe same individual from lime lo lime. Mosl lobacco users recall Ihe lime when they were learning lo smoke how sick 11 made them. Experienced smokers occasionally complain of similar upsets. Chronic effects of tobacco arc known, but there Is a difference of'opinion as to their significance. Of all the systems in the body, the circulatory system seems to be af- fecled most. The respiratory, nervous and digestive systems also are affecled. There is a sharp drop in the temperature of the fingers and toes af tor using lobacco. This is caused by nervous constriction of the ar- leries as heal loss lo Ihc outside is regulated by the amount of blood which flows through Ihe skin. Harmful effects from tobacco in the coronary circulation blood flow through the muscle of Ihc hedrl, have been reported. If Ihe records of young viclims of coronary heart disease are analyzed, il is found lhal Ihe majorily are heavy smokers. The large number of falal cases of Ihis malady in young men would suggesl lhal excessive use of lobacco may be a faclor. Another possibility is thai Ihc same nervousness which drives Ihem on causes them lo seek relief from lension through the use of lobacco. Buerger's Disease Arlcries and veins of Ihe arms and legs of persons suscepliblc lo tobacco may develop Bucrccr's disease. This disorder is more com mon in nervous individuals wlio use tobacco to excess. In normal persons, the effecl of tobacco lipon Ihe circulation is first a slowing and then an increase in the pulse rate and a rise in blood pressure. This effect is noted in )oth chronic and occasional users. Tobacco is a case of "one man's meat becoming another man's poison." Some persons can use I throughout their lifetime without permanent harmful effccls while others arc definilcly harmed by it. LIGHTENS dark SKIN Loosens BLACKHEADS Use only as directed.

Legion Poppy Sole to Be Held May 24 May 24 will be Poppy Day in Hope and throughout the United States, Mrs. E. P. O'Neal, President of Leslie Huddlcston Unit of Lhc American Legion Auxiliary, announced today. On that day everyone will be asked to wear a memorial poppy in honor of the dead of the two world wars and to make a contribution for the welfare of the disabled veterans, their families and the families of the dead. Volunteers from the auxiliary and young women's groups of the city will distribute the flowers on the streets throughout the day. Mrs. M. M. McCloughan, Poppy Chairman of the Auxiliary, will be in general charge. .Plans are being made to cover the city completely so that everyone will have an opportunity to honor the war dead and aid the living victims of the two conflicts. "The Saturday before Memorial Day has been observed as Poppy Day in all parts of the country for many years," said Mrs. McCloughan in announcing the date of this year's observance. "Poppies have been worn in memory of the war dead ever since the close of World War I. They-arc replicas of the wild flowers which grew on the battle fields of France and Belgium, fought over in both wars, but they have come to symbolize memory for those who died in any part of the world. "The poppies which the Auxiliary will distribute are all hand-made, shaped from crepe paper by disabled veterans working in hospitals and convalescent workshops throughout the country. The disabled men lake special pride in making the flowers to honor their t'allen comrades and the work is valuable lo them as occupational therapy, besides bringing them • much needed earnings.". o rREE PARKING Chico, Calif., May 14 —(#•)— Bill Jones of the Durham community gets lo park free in front of a meter every time he rides inlo Chico. The city put the meter in front of a hitching post and Jones asked for a ruling on whether he had to pay where he has been tying his horse for years. Not as long as it's a horse without a buggy. City Manager Harry 'H. Hume ruled. The parking motor ordinance specifies "vehicles." o The percentage of American families which have five children has bpen approximately halved since 1920. DOROTHY DIX Marrying for Money DEAR DOROTHY DIX: There is a boy 21 years of age whom I believe I could marry. He has never worked in his life, as his parents are well off -and have given him everything he desired. I know his father and mother do not approve of our marriage as we arc not in the same social class and because they are very ambitious for him to finish his education. If we should marry, do you think we should live with his parents? They have a lovely home and he is the only child, and they would have to support us and we could have a very easy life. My parents think that I should get him by all means, for he is a good catch and I detest living in my poor circumstances. The boy does not care whether his parents object or not, for he has always gotten what he wanted. He has never paid me much attention until five or six weeks ago, but I am quite sure that with my mother's help I can persuade him into marrying me. I don't care whether his folks like me or not as long as I am bettering myself. Do you think I can be happy, even if his father and mother will be terribly disappointed in our mnr VERY ANXIOUS have encountered ANSWER: I Top Radio Programs of the Day New York, May 14—Of)—On the air tonight: NBC—6 Dennis Day; 6:30 Gildersleeve; 7:30 District Attorney; 8:30 Kay Kyser.

It is nothing you ca buy with money. Believe me, the sorriest bargain that any girl evci makes is when she sells herself it marriage, ANSWER: The best remedy for ovc at first sight is to do a little ard thinking. That will convince on that what you are afflicted with s infatuation. You couldn't possibly herish a deathless passion fon a ian with whom you haven't event speaking acquaintance. My advice to you both is to for- et the lads. And don't worry about ever loving again. You will do it many times. DEAR DOROTHY DIX: Should "Gtacit (fiatlOHbriht ywsn wavanponx Copyright by Gwen Davenport; Distributed by NEA SERVICE; INC. XXXIII ; Sophie -put on her sealskin cloak and went out through the fog to call on Mrs. Bagot. It was many years since she had called on anyone, people usually called on her. Now sue was as nervous as ; if it wcr.e an opening night. Should she make a clean, breast of everything to Mrs. Bagot, identify Godfrey and count on Sally's dcccnl impulses and his love? Although she could picture a very moving and dramatic scene along these lin.es, some instinct held her back. What would really be accomplished? Godfrey, even had he been legitimate, would scarcely have been a forebear to announce with pride. I The truth was, Sophie did not want Vicky to be looked down upon )y her in - laws; it would be almost setter to marry someone else. She came up to the Bagot house Urcd and aching a little. A inaid admitted her and showed :ier into the empty living room. A fire was blazing, and the maid took Sophie's wrap. In a few minutes Mrs. Bagot came in. I'Madame van Eyck! Good morn ing." "How do you do?" Mrs. Bagol seemed genuinely upset. "Do sit down," sjic said. "I am so glad you have come. Salty is here. I can't do a Ihing with him. He's over al his Uncle Adam's now." "I don't understand," said Sophie. "When he got back to his base last night his orders had come. He was assigned to the West Coast, to pick up his ship there." Sophie fell as if Providence hac lakcn mailers out of the hands oJ any of them. "Oh—I'm sorry." "He has Iwo weeks' grace. His ship is undergoing repairs." Sophie's eyes widened. "Oh! anc Vicky is nol here. She has lei Maine." "It is good of you lo come and see me," Mrs. Bagol went on. "I eel I ow.e you an explanallon." "No—please. II was no inconven' ence al all, I assure you. I want d lo be cerlain you and I under- lood each olher." "II must have seemed most discourteous to you yesterday, rushing off as I did, bul I was dreadfully upset Shocked. Sally has lold me since of his feelings toward Victora. Sally is an only child, Madame —the last of the family—" At thai momenl a side door op ened somewhere off Ihc. hall and Sally's voice came lo Ihe Iwo women in Ihe living room. "Mother! Uncle Adam has come back with me. He'll stay here for lunch." Mrs. Bagot rose, glancing al So- jhic. "He thinks his uncle is on his side," she murmured. "Come in here, Sailer—we have a caller.' The Iwo Bagot men left Inch raincoats in the hall and came in by Ihc fire. Salty looked worried and upset and very much discomfited at seeing Sophie. Adam Ba- gol benl low over her hand, as Ija had Ihc day before. "Mr. Bagol, Ihis is a pleasure," said Sophie. "I hadn'l expeclcd lo sec you." "I am glad you're here, Uncle Adam," Mrs. Bagol said. "You will help me express lo Madame my apologies." "I rcgrel Ihe circumstances in which we mcel again," said old DEAR MISS DIX: My girl frienc and I would like to know your op inion on whether there is such a thing as love at first sight. I hav thought I was in love with many boys, but I got over it in each case However, now I am hnrd hil by a boy I never saw before.

Salty wns too restless to sit still. "What about a glass of the old madeira, Mother?" he suggested. "I'm afraid I couldn't at this hour of the morning. Sophie was disappointed, as her long damp walk had made her acutely conscious of every one of her joints. Much to her joy, she heard Adam Bagot say he would like a glass. "What about you, Madame van Eyck? Won't you join me?" Warmed by the wine, Sophie felt glad she had come. They could at least part friends. "Of course I understand," she said. "I can quite see why you would feel as you did. As you do. Only—don't you think- perhaps—with times as they are— young people must be considered first? Ahead even of their families. They have so little time for happiness this dreadful war Nothing will be the same now" Mrs Bagot drew her shoulders into a straight line. "I can never compromise with my standards," she announced. "For my son's wife not to know who her own grandfather was seems to me an impossible situation. I am sincerely sorry." "But I am sure Madame van Eyck has her reasons—" began Adam. "They are not reasons which one would care to tell one's friends." "That seems to settle it," Sophie said. Adam extended a bony hand. "Amelia, Madame van Eyck is one of the great women of her time. I do not think you should talk to her like that, whatever the provocation.' "I don't mean to be rude," Mrs. Bagot said, genuinely distressed "I should be proud to have Madame van Eyck for a friend. Only—" "Considering she has been the friend of crowned heads," Adam said, "I can't call that very noble of you." Sophie was beginning to feel almost drugged by the warmth of the fire on her face and the warmth of the wine inside. She heard Adam say "crowned heads," and suddenly, inexplicably she was struck with the certainty of what Greese, Turkey Conllnuea tfom Page One ate approval for the chief of any mission presumably including neads of the small military groups .o be sent to Ihe Iwo countries to nslrucl their armed forces in Ihc use of modern American war equipment. President Truman thus far has given no indication of his choice for top director of the program, although it is generally understood lhal Ambassador Edwin C. Wilson will direcl Ihe on-lhe-ground expenditure of $100,000,000 in strictly military aid to Turkey. The $300,000,000 remainder to be spcnl lo help Greece, will be divided equally between economic and military assistance. In compromising differences bc- Iw'ccn bills passed separately by the Iwo chambers, the Senate- House committee also provided lhal all civilian personnel musl be invesligaled by Ihe Federal Bureau of Invesligalion. The $350,000,000 foreign relief bill on which Ihe Senalc has scheduled an afternoon vole seemed likely lo gain approval without major changes, despite a previous House vote lo cul Ihis fund lo $200,000,000. The larger sum contemplates $50,000,000 for Greece in addition lo Ihc money provided in the stem- communism measure. Senator McClcllan (D-Ark), lold a reporter he may offer an amendment barring any relief lo Russia and seven olher nations he described as "clearly dominated economically and politically" by the Sovicls.

Mr. Truman called for immediate legislation settling up a minimum ol at least G5 cents an hour as compared to the present 40 cents and asked extension of minimum wage benefits to groups not now covered. Claims for back porlal-to-porlal pay, the president said, emerged after a judicial decision on the wage and hour law had raised Ihe possibilily lhal employers might be required to pay back wages "for cerlain activilies which in most industries had not previously been considered by cither workers or employers to be compcnsable." "In the interest of the economic stability of our nation," Mr. Truman said, "il is essential lo clarify Ihis matter by slaUie." "Current wage negotiations can proceed more readily to a salis- factory conclusion and businessmen will be able to plan with assurance for full production and price reductions. "This will be of real value to labor and management in the .maintenance of a continued high level of employment." Mr. Truman said he understood thai section Iwo of the act relating to existing claims was not intended "to invalidate all olher existing claims." He addsd in explanation: "The plan language of section Iwo of Ihe act preserves minimum wage and overtime compensation claims based upon activities which were comperisable in any amount to do.
