China With its five Hundred millions continues to be one oi" the Worst danger-spots on pur troubled globe despite the untiring efforts of Uncle Sam's General Marshall to bring an 'eiid to the bloody bitterness between the Nationalist •government and the Chinese Corn- 1 rnunists. Time and again the general has had success almost within his grasp, only to see ihe i'ight- ing ilame up again as it has now at various points north of the strategic Yangtze river. Rival Communist and government armies are on the march along this mighty waterway, and General Chou En-lai, Communist spokesman says that local con! iiicts are growing rapidly into civil .'war.

He was fearless and naturally made a lot of enemies." He said his investigating com- millee was "immensely pleased" with Garsson's work. Senator Brewster (R-Me) asked Sabath whether he was quite sure a secretary in the local office of the munitions combine was mistaken when she said calls irom him related to poker games. "No, no. no," Sabath exclaimed. "Once in a while I play poker, but not with them. I can't come up to their level in a poker game, but I'm a pretty fair pinochle player." To a question as to how he knew about their poker ability, Sabath said he was referring to the poker ability of those with whom he did play the game on a few occasions, not the Garssons or Freeman. "But I am guilty of playing pinochle when they couldn't get the third hand," he said. Under questioning by Senator Ferguson (R-Mich) Sabath said he did not refer members of the combine to Chairman May D-Ky of the House military committee.

He replied in ihe affirmative to a question whether May would be a "natural man" for the Garsson interest*to deal with. A secretary, Jean Bates, had tola tne committee earlier in me week of calls between the munitions combination's Washington office and the offices of Barkley, McConnack, Sabath and Rep. May (D-Kyi. Barkley said: "I wish merely to slate I never knew anything about those calls." He said lhal a Mrs. Charles Chance, one of ..his office slaff, had called two or Ihree times trying to locale her husband, who was seeking employment flul he said Mrs. Chance had no occasion to discuss any business with the Garsson interest. Barkley said thfct "it's true" that his son David worked for a while for one of the companies in the combine, although he did not know the title of the job. Alter the son was discharged from the army air forces after the war, Barkley said, hs came to Washinglon and consulted various people about a job. The senator said thai Murray Garsson, one of the brothers involved in the munitions group, found out in some way Ihe son was looking for a position and had him come down to a meeting. "And when I got home that night, he had hired him," Barkley said. "I thought it looked like quick work." To The Voters of the Eighth Judicial District: I am a candidate for Prosecuting Attorney in the Eighth Judicial District composed of Hempstead, Nevada, Miller, Clark and Lafayette counties. I am attempting to see as many people as possible but with five counties to cover it is impossible to contact each voter in this district during the campaign.

The first primary election this year is on I uesday,. July 30th. The run-off is on Tuesday. August 13th. I would like to win in the first primary. Thank you in advance for helping make that possible.

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, July 19 —(/I>i— Corn broke the full 5-ccnt limit and tuils were down as much as 3 cents at times today in the grain futures market. Heavy offerings of cash grain by the country, with bookings of 325,000 bushels of corn aiu! 100,000 bushels of oats reported prior to the close, created selling. Hedging pressure was the major factor in the downturn as the market ignored OPA legislative developments. Cash prices were steady on wheat and corn but 1 to 2 cents lower on oats. Final prices were at or close to the day's lows. Corn finished 5 cents lower, January $1.56, and oals were off 2 3-4, 5 cents. July 78, 78 1-8.

It's the petroleum industry's record of gasoline price and quality since 192Q. It's a story of quality going UP; prices coming DOWN. 3(K a gallon then; a little over 204 now. Even with greatly increased taxes included, you pay one-third less today than in 1920, after World ,War I. Excluding taxes, you pay only one-half as much today. and quality... j. j Meanwhile, gasoline quality has advanced by leaps and bounds. In fact, during the 10 years before the war, the octane number improvement in gasoline has permitted an increase of over 25% in the compression ratio of engines in American cars. This has improved gasoline mileage by at least 11%. Service, too, has increased greatly — with the industry's 400,000 expert roadside service stations to meet your needs as you drive today. Naturally, we're proud of our part in this job - and glad to publish this record which shows so well how American business succeeds at its job of producing better and better living at lower and lower costs for the people of this country.

Have two daughters, 8 and 10 years old Thiough the years my husband has given me every luxury and has been good lo me. We have never really loved each other. He mar- rid me because his sweetheart had Jilted him and I married him because I knew he had money and could give me a life of ease I have never put myself out to make him comforlable or happy, fcclin- lhal his love for the children would bind him to me. However, he now tells me that he has fallen deeply in love with another woman and he begs me to give him his freedom. He says he will support me and educate our children, but I have made up my mind not to give him up. I have no love for him, but I want i my luxuries. I didn't force him luteiy notning So have a heart and let your husband go. He has agreed to support you and his children, so why nol be a good sport about it and let him have his happiness? Dear Dorothy Dix: Will you please advise me aboul choosing a vocation? I hate commercial work. What do you think about nursing as a profession? RUTH G. Answer: Don't take up any work for which you have not a natural liking and aptitude. We are only successful when we do the kind of work that appeals to us of itself and in which we find a never-failing interest. Nursing is a fine and noble profession for a gill to follow. It pays not only well in money, but in the satisfaction of. knowing that one is doing something for the good of hu- on politically as on their ability, predict a mild spurt of political activity and interest in the next 10 days.

Gi, as mosl any ex-serviceman will tell you, is abbreviation for "Government Issue." The name "gi" first was attached as a nickname to the army's enlisted man in the recent unpleasantness. Marines, sailors and coastguardsmen—enlisted men that is— had their own nicknames and never claimed "gi". To these servicemen, an army enlisted man was a "gi" or a "dogface." Officers of all services were nicknamed "The Brass," at anj rate by the enlisted man who had no objection to his own nickname. But, judging from the publicity the piesent election has stirred up in Arkansas there isn't any Brass' or "Ex-Brass" around. It is all "gi" now. I m L to I* so why should I MRS. A.
