' There you have the altogelher grim setting for the fight between Chinese Communism and the Nationalist government. Even if the country had cne undisputed government, the task of pulling the nation out of its . tail-spin would be titanic. The question of whether Chinese Communism is affiliated with Mos- nsiderable ef- f the struggle _ . a remarkable , thing that this' point thus far hasn't had any formal official clarification. When General Ho Ying-chin was asked if there was any connection between the two he shot back tartly: "Better ask the Chinese Communists that." Well, I've done exactly that in China and have made the inquiry fr °rn no less personage than General Chou En-lai, second in leadership of the Chinese Reds. He told me that the Chinese Reds weren't hooked to Moscow. Still you will find many competent observers - }l ° ^ elleve (but can't prove) that the Chinese Communists get inspiration and material aid from Russia. ,, The point is, of course, that if the Chinese Communists are indeed "on their own," the prospect of shortening the civil war might be somewhat brighter. - - -o Doily Bread Continued From Page One Reuthers's UAW and of other un- high food costs than millions of ions are better protected against their countrymen who are living on fixed incomes or working for wages which haven't advanced in a year or more.

Consumer resistance . ex ° bltant which the Farm Leaders Get Long Sought Victory By OVID A. MARTIN Associated Press Farm Reporter Washington, July 2 0— (XW— The end of OPA's food subsidies has given (arm leader critics of these federal support payments a victory I for which they have been bat- i tling lor more than a year. Much 01 the criticism which such iarm organizations as t ; >e National Grange and the American Farm Bureau .Federation directed I at the OP A was not concerned as I much with price ceiling;! as with subsidies. They contended that the payment of more than $1,500.000,000 a .year in food subsidies from the I t'edor- : il treasury had the effect of r-iv.iii! consumer:! nn "iinrt'alistic" picture \it j'ood costs. The subsidy program had the effect of dividing people's grocery bills. The consumer paid only a part of the bill when he bought tood. The government paid the rest in the form of subsidies, and ihen collected it in taxes. Farm leaders feared that if subsidies were continued until food supplies became plentiful, farmers would be forced not only to take a cut in prices, but would lose the subsidies as well. They argued that Congress would be unwilling to continue subsidies to help pay food production costs after the war emergency was over. The farm leaders wanted consumers to know the "real" prices of food, thinking they would have a better understanding of farm price problems in the uiturc, whnn plentiful supplies —and possibly surpluses — were again available. In fighting subsidies, the Iarm organizations argued that tha payments did not in fact save consumers anything. They emphasi/.- ed that the subsidies were paid by the government from taxes on the public and through borrowings which would later have to be retired by taxes. Governmental proionents of sudsidies have held tha I they were and are an essential instrument lor stabilizing the cost, of living and of preventing recurring demands for wage increases, will! a resulting inflationary spiral. Since the subsidies expired. there has been an argument as to whether food costs are actually any higher than they were under the OPA, taking subsidies into account. The Republican congressional that a survey in Washington shows food study committee reports in at a survey in Washington shows that prices are a little less than they were under the OPA plus sub] sidles. The committee took into account prices which it said were at k mar ket" levels under the war. State Lets Litlle Rock, July 20 — OP)— The slate highway commission has awarded construction and maintenance contracts totaling 1,856,119 and involving 347 45 mile's •of roads. Seven of the 12 contracts awarded yesterday went to out-of-state firms and two bids were rejected as excessive. The contracts: St. Francis and Critlenden counties — 13.42 miles grading, drainage and gravel base, .blackfish Lake-West Memphis road, highway iO, A. C Campbell , Shreveport La., $400,195.30. — JO. 49 miles grading gravel base and bridge ., , Monroe drainage, re remodeling on Clarendon-Erinkley ,. Ahsley — 8.46 miles grading, drainage, gravel base and bituminous surfacing Crossett - Louisiana line road, stale 133, Reynolds and Williams, Tyler, Tex., :j 145 886 Arkansas, Ahsley and Jefferson counties — 4.0 miles ance i bituminous sea] . Citing sharp advances in prices of cattle, hogs, meats and butter since the OPA expired, government food officials disagree with tne republican report. They contend that prices have in general advanced above the combined total of OPA prices and subsidies. Officials have figured that the subsidies made the average consumer's grocery bill about $12 a year lower than it otherwise would have been. The OPA and the Agriculture Department, said the subsidies had been holding down retail prices by these amounts; butter Ib cents a pounds; cheddar cheese, 3 cents a pound; milk, 2 to 3 cents a quart- v/heat flour one cent a pound; white bread one cent a loaf; meat, 5 to 10 cents .a pound, depending upon the kind and cut; sugar one cent a pound; coffee 5 cents a pound; canned corn, no. 2 can, one cent; canned tomatoes, no. 2 can two cents; and dry edible beans seven-tenths cent a pound. Subsidy proponents agreed with critics that the subsidies must be paid by taxes. But they said the bulk of the taxes would be paid by higher income taxpayers. Low- income consumers, they said, did save under subsidies, because ihe amout of taxes they paid was far less than the amount. That subsidies saved them on foods — particularly in the cases or poorer people with large families. — • - -o -- in Plant highways 1, W. . $'11,420. 81. ( mainten- coating on , , . R.

Hankin (D-Miss) repeated i nthe House today his charge ot earlier this week that "foreign spies" are operating in ihe Oak Ridge, Tenn., aloin bomb plant. They are "trying lo gel the secret of Ihe alom bomb for Ihe purpose of using it not only against us but against some of our allies," he ussertecl. Rankin Ihen added that "the same thing has been going on' 'at the Aberdeen, Md., Proving grounds for new weapons, where live employes were released yesterday by ihe army. Rankin made his statements as the House resumed debate on legislation for control of atomic energy development. Rallying behind demands for army retention of atomic energy control, a group of House members spurred a drive? today to shelve the administration's civilian control bill. Failing by only 29 votes yesterday in a preliminary attempt to kill the legislation outright, opponents closed ranks for a roll-call vote on a motion to send the bill back to the military commitlee for "further study." If successful, this would have the effect of pulling ihe legisla- lion on ice unlil next year Rep. Short (D-Moj who told reporters he would seek the roll call vote at the conclusion of today's debate, said: "This legislation shouldn't h considered until after the war is officially ended or Ihe peace treaties are written. Things are too uncertain now." Short said the chances "are 6°od' for recommitting the bill, which the House amended by standing votes yesterday over administration opposition.

Protest of Prices in U.S. Continues By United Press Consumers' boycotts protesting rising food prices continued throughout the nation today, but rxcer.i in scattered instanc.es little effect was noted. At least one meat packer sh;ni- lied approval of tne boycotts O.. M. Foster, president of John Mori-ell and Co., at Outtumwa, la., said, ••when prices ;ire abnormally high, people can discriminate in .their purchases, or buy substitutes or do without." "In that manner," lie said, "we achieve more effective price control than any OPA can promulgate in a thousand years."

"You— you're so swcel!" Norma said, wiping her streaming eyes. Aunt Clem had approved of Jim Hallock and she gave her beloved ncicc her blessing and if her gaze was questioning as from time to time it mcl Sally's she had nothing to say about the mythical Blair Canficld. Doctor Hallock spoke of her lacl on Iheir way back to Linton. "1 like your aunt, darling" he told her. "You know thai oM affair isn't exactly a pleasant subject lo me and I appreciate her thoughtfulness." And Sally appreciated it too. Richard Gregory was due in Linlonville soon after the Fourth and Sally wondered if his visit had anything to do with Blair Canfield's proposed advent. Aj Ihe time approached she grew in- Icieasmgly nervous. Suppose news ! of Blair Canfield's coming should appear in the LintonvilU; Chron- lUe. What could :;he say?

That was the advice of Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., to college girls attending a Career Clinic of Adelphi College. Today's educated girls don't need to bo warned against becoming yes-women to their husbands. They have their own ideas on everything from politics to how lo bring up Junior — and they're ready to fight for them. But there is a lot of darker lhal they will turn into yes-women so lar as other women are concerned. Lducalion may convince a girl she has just as much right to her political ideas as her husband has lo Ins. But it has failed to make her an individualist in the world of other women. So she moves inlo a community as a bride and starts yessing other women all over the place. Yes, she has to join any im- poilant club lhal asks her because if she doesn't she will offend Mrs So-and-so and Mrs. Such - and- such. Yes, she has lo keep up a certain living standard, even though it costs all out of proportion to her husband's income, because the other women in her crowd do things that way. THOSE "ADVANTAGES" Yes, she has to keep Papa's nose lo the grindstone so the kids can be given certain "advantages" thai mean more lo Mama's social position than to the kids' real welfare. Yes, she has to play bridge oven though she really doesn't enjoy it because she can't let the other women think she never gels invil- ed anywhere. ' The modern, educated woman is a yes-woman, all right. But nol for her husband. She is loo busy ycEsing other women's ideas to pay much attention to what her husband ihinks-r let alone lo yes him.

THE SHOCK OF HER LIFE •Fresno, Calif., July 20 —(fj— Three-year-old Sharon Cook isn' much interested in lhal old saying about a burned-, child shunnin lire, bhe would amend the aphor ism to apply to cooled children a- she was being treated today foi abrasions received when she backed into an electric fan to beat the heal. Tin, one of the earliest metal: discovered, is mentioned in severa books of the Bible. Tiany unhappy married couples is because there' are so few husbands 10 attempt to learn lo speak each other's language, or lo find out what makes the wheels go around n each other's hearts and minds. n proof of this, lake just the ord- nary, everyday, run-of-thc-;r.ill r aull.s thai put so many marriages on the skids. There is nagging, which is Ihe .op-drawer crime that any wile :an commit, so far as men are ;oncerned, and certainly no one ;an blame a husband for resetting being pin-pricked to death by his wife's tongue. But does any man try to understand what makes us wife nag? Not one in a mil- ion. Ho doesn't even suspect that ler nagging is the revenge she .akes on him for his ceasing to ae a lover and becoming a more lUfband. She is heart-hungry, starving ' or soft talk. She wants him to flatter her and tell her she gels more beatuiful every day, and that he is the ONLY woman in the vorld to him. Probably there isn't a nagging wife in the world whose nouth couldn't be shut by a few arses every day thai didn't seem .0 have come out of the icebox. And if men's chief grouch against wives is nagging, v/omen's enternal gripe is that their husbands neglect them. They want their husbands'to be good providers, but they also expect Ihem to be entertaining and amusing com- pamions and to keep up the tactics of courtship after marriage. You hear no other complaint from ' wives so frequently as that their husbands won't take them out stepping, and that they have to al- • most blast their' husbands out of their chairs after they settle down in them after dinner, with their papers. Many a wife breaks her heart * over her husband's neglect and thinks he has ceased to love her because he fails to show her 'the attentions he did when he was ,' courting her, when the real reason ' is that the poor man is workinp^—• hard to give her all the luxurie- she craves, that he is too tired < even talk of an evening.
