Bob's Home Town) Mayor Bob Surridge is making an intensive campaign in his efforts to be elected state auditor, scored last Sunday when an endorsement of Dr. H. E. Williams nreziden.t of the Southern Baptist College at Pocahontas, was published in daily newspapers in the •state. . . -. The veteran mayor Mra*-the-support of the people of this-county and the Baptist ap- 'provaV. will recommend him to people of the state who do not know Mayor Surridge. The Times-Dispatch commends him to the people of the state as wortny of trust. Your Vote and Influence Will Be Appreciated (This ad paid for by Lt. Bob -. Surridge) suspicious. There are other ele- m'tnis entering into the story, but suspicion is one of the main difficulties. However, to get back to Russia's rejection of ihe American proposal, a spokesman for the.U. S. delegation says: "We will now let Gromyko carry the ball for a while and listen to what all the delegates 1 " i vf> to say about his proposals." Moscow's proposition would put the wnole system ot atomic control under the United Nations Security Council and the United Nations set-up. It would retain the jj".

S. con- lingenl expresses confidence lhat il can seel its own program lo ihe other nations. Bul whal if Uncle Sam can't sell his bill of goods? Well, there's always chance of a compromise, although' at this .writing the American delegation is standing pat on all fundamental points of its plan. After all, it's in position to Eland pat — even to refuse lo compromise, for thai mailer — because America has the atomic bomu ar.u its secrets. Judges, Clerks Continued from Page One Ellis, W. H.

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, July 2(i —t/f'i— Corn pi ices broke 5 cents, the limit daily decline, in the last lew minutes of trading today when several large commission houses oflered the grain lor y sale and found the market lacking in bids. Until the late seelliui',, corn hail held steady. Traders said they thought r.ome of the late selling reprose'itecl hedging against purchases of cash grain. Cash dealers bought l')4(i crop corn on a ot-arrive ba.>is at $1.40, more than 5 cents undor the OPA maximums. Oats, which were strong early, sank with corn but managed to hold onto pairl of their gains. August oats del-lined aboul. 2 cents its earlier.high. There was .a good demand for pats from commission houses with export connections. NEW YORK COTTON New York, July 26 — (/?)- The — in 10 Minutes!

The CIO United Auto Workers announced in Detroit they will continue their OPA-holiday buyers' strike because, as UAW President-Walter P. Reuther put it in a statement: "This bill only pretends to restore price control. Actually it legalizes inflation on many commodities." 5. In Chicago, the American Meat Institute declared that Mr. Truman's signing of t h e bill "threatens to renew chaos in the meat industry just as consumers are beginning to e n j o y more meal." Most nf Ihe orders OPA stacked up for issuance today were ready for announcement when the agency's authority lapsed July 1. One permilo an eighl per cenl shoe price increase, for example, while the majority of the others affect industrial c-fj u i p m e n t and materials. Some of the regulations direct the elimination of ceilings on a wide variety of items. In every case, ihey are based on previous OPA pricing standards. The new law sets up new guides for higher ceilings but gives OPA 80 to GO days to put these into effect. It also automatically re-establishes previous rent controls in 520 areas. OPA's eviction notice requirement:;, too, went back into effect. And the agency announced lhal the restoration of i'edernl con- 504 So.

Traders generally awaite a bet- tr Jea of how the new price control program will operate. There were fears in some quarters that a ceiling may be applied to the 194G crop. Officials of the Price Control Administration have expressed the.opinion such action was outlawed under the new bill although they could not speak for the decontrol board to be appointed by the president. Private advices noted improved mill buying of spot cotton during the past week with some buyers covering part of their requirements through the summer of 1947.

Despite his criticism of the new legislation, Mr. Truman, in his message lo Congress, termed il "a beller bill than the one I was forced to veto June 29.' ' OPA Boss Paul Porter said in a statement the agency "will do its best to make this' bill work, and we think it will work". Mr. Truman singled out for spe cific criticism provisions of the bill which he said will make "clothing prices in particular x x :< difficult to hold al reasonable levels." OPA officials estimated privately that a new formula set up for pricing cotton and woolen textiles may force clothing costs up as much as 15 to 20 per cent. The president also expressed his displeasure with an amendment which shifts authority over food pi ices from OPA to the Secretary oi Agriculture. On this point he said "good government requires thai a Jnw' be administered consistently in all fields where it is applicable. Consistency of policy is difficult to achieve when, us in the present bill, Congress has provided for division of responsibility." Mr .Truman said that in general the bill "makes the task of staving off inflation even more difficult" lhan in Ihe pasl, and ^hal a result "there are some things which consumers will have to do without, or pay Higher ceilings .'ur them lhan they should." As for the three-man decontrol board the bill sets up with power to overrule OPA, Mr. Truman i;aid he was "not opposed" to its creation "to resolve ;< x x difficull questions of timing the removal of controls.' 'He announced he will appoint members of the board in a day or so and thai il will nol bo a packed jury. One of the board's first jobs will be a decision of whether meat, dairy products, grains, cottonseed and soybeans should be put back under ceilings August 20. I!' the board fails to act by thai lime, controls automalically will be re- eslablished. In Chicago, livestock producer, feeder and marketing representatives called i'or a quick announcement thai price conlrols will nol be reimposcd on meal, adding in a statement that olherwise: "Fewer callle will move inlo ihe feedlols and Jess sows will De brea for spring farrowing, with \he result o u r meat shortage will become more seriously acule in the lute winter and spring of 19-17.

Many of those arrested nad been taken into custody in previous roundups but were released on parole with a .requirement that ihey remain in their nomes after sunset and report to the police twice a day.

O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service Flea bites result from contact with dog and cat fleas and human fleas. Another variety of flea is troublesome because ot its tendency to burrow into the skin. In biting, fleas leave a chnrac- tcristic mark which can be recognized ul a glance, as it is n well with a tiny spot of hemorrhage in the middle. The reaction to flea bites varies in different individuals, in accordance with the sensitivity of the skin. Some show no reaction, while others arc made ill by the bites. The irritating substance which the flea injects through the hole ho makes in the skin produces an allergic reaction in hypersensitive persons; in some there is a gcn- eralixcd disturbance, with hives and hcmorrhagic eruptions. Flea bites sometimes arc evenly spaced in a line across the skin, as flc-as have a tendency to hop and bite and hope again. Fleas also can jump from one person to another. Phenol Relieves Itching Flea-bite reactions are relieved by the application of any anti-itching lotion containing menthol or phenol. As these preparations contain a powder in suspension, they should be mopped on the surface and allowed to dry. Heappli- catiqn can be made without removing the coat previously applied. As ordinary dog and cat fleas are the usual source of human bites, the control of the pests on the animals and in the animals' quarters will clear up the difficulty. l j cts should be given a thorough scrubbing with soap and water in which is incorporated one of the preparations for destroying animal ilcas. Powders, too, can be applied to the pet's skin. The animal's quarters should be thoroughly cleaned, and all dust and rubbish should be removed. Flea control in the home is largely a matter of animal-flea control, plus a thorough housecleaning and fumigation. If the fleas arc in the bedding and mattresses, those articles can be sterilized. The floors should be scrubbed with soap and water to which an antiseptic agent has been added. Exterminating powder can be applied in the cracks, or the whole job can be turned over to a trained pcst-ox terminator. Beware Burrowing Fleas The female of a certain variety of llca (chigoe, jigger, or nigua) has a bad habit of biting and then burrowing into the skin, especially that around toes and fingers. She leaves a small black spot at the point of entrance, and severe reaction in the tissues may result. The proper treatment is to sterilize the skin and dig out the fleas with a needle. Secondary infection can cause a severe ulccration which may disable the patient. Control of rat fleas, which transmit serious diseases (plague and typhus) in certain parts of the world, is effected by destroying the rats with gases or traps. Clothing infected by rat fleas is best destroyed. In certain sections of the country, the so-called human flea is the cause of most of the difficulty. Fleas live about a year, and under average conditions they propagate with case. Ground infection is the important source of burrowing fleas, and in heavily infested areas it may be necessary to destroy them around the premises. * + * Question: What value docs cod liver oil have in building up resistance against colds?

Page Three DOROTHY DIX Attracting Eligible Men Dear Miss Dix: I am a business girl of 23 and have just moved from the small town, in which I have lived all my life, to a large city in which I know no one except my employers and my fellow workers. How can I get somebody to introduce me to the people I should like to meet? And particularly how can I meet eligible men? Please tell me how I can make the social contacts that I desire. RUTH. Answer: Alas, Ruth, if anyone knows the magic words OPEN SESAME that cause closed doors to fly apart when spoken, the mcanics keep it a dead secret. Especially does no one meet a girl stranger with glad shouts of welcome, nor lend her a helping hand in her husband hunt. So the village maiden who goes to town because she thinks it will be easy to make desirable social contacts finds that it is just about as hard to break into a parlor as it would be into a bank vault. Big City Difficult In the country or a small town people get to know each other because they arc dependent upon each other. In a big city people or hunting, or even when I go to work. We don't have uny company because no woman dares to speak to me. She has driven away all of rny men friends. I am so miserable I don't know what to do, and I don't think I can stand such treatment much longer. What would you advise me to do? She wants me to go back into the Army. SERGEANT X. Answer: Well, Sergeant, I think you had belter take her advice and return to the Army. I should think an ordinary battle field would be a peaceful and restful place compared to a home dominated by such a female tyrant. But why do you stand for it' No man has to put up with bcin;, henpecked the way you are unless he likes il. Dear Dorothy Dix: Is it true that a girl of 16 or 17 is more emotionally mature than a boy of the same age? I say that she is, but my boy friend insists that I am wrong. Which of us is right? B.L. Answer: You arc. Of course there arc exceptions to all rules, but, avoid knowing each other because j generally speaking, a girl of 16 or The war created an extra drain on the soil.

So be cautious about making acquaintances, lest you find yourself stepping out with a jail bird, or that your girl friend is no better than she should be. And don't delude yourself into thinking that just because there are more men in a big city than there are in a small town that husbands arc easier to catch. Living expenses arc so high in a city that they discourage matrimony. Also, there arc so many lonesome girls, like yourself, so anxious for masculine companionship, that a man can always find some girl to play around wilh, without having to assume her board bill and shopping ticket. But there is one ray of comfort for you. Propinquity does its deadly work, and there is no place where there is such good husband hunting as in an office. Dear Miss Dix: I was married about five years ago to a girl I loved very much at the lime, but she has bossed me and nagged me and pushed me around until I don't even like' 1 to be around her.

Girls develop faster than boys do, and al an age when boys are indifferent to their appearance and have to be goaded into washing behind their ears and are interested in nothing bul sports and consider girls pests, girls arc already self-conscious, spending their lime beautifying themselves, thinking themselves in love and planning their weddings, and planning their weddings. In the younger brackets il is practically always the girls who run after the boys and do the love-making. (Bell Syndicate, Inc.)

But never will I forget the cruel thing I did lo her. How can I explain lo Corinna and Roberl that they— my daughter and my husband — have been cheated all through the years for Cecily's sake? And lhal she wasn't worth it! Delia? Delia hates me for whal I've done to Cecily's life. But to go back to the beginning. Delia, Cecily's mother, is a strange one. She is very wealhy bul she squeezes every cent. Yet there was a time, jusl before Cecily was born, thai she supplied hundreds of dollars when my life depended on it. She even allowed me a small share in Cecily when I needed a reason to go on living. But when she saw me becoming too interested in the baby, she introduced me to Robert. Shortly after we were married, Delia spoke of moving away. I couldn't bear to be parted from Cecily. So, though Robert had just been offered a good position in our town, I told him I was going lo follow Delia. V Robert came over and gripped my shoulders, looking lo my eyes. I Iricd deep lo wrench myself iree bul he was stronger. "You mean it," he said. "You'd leave me for Cecily." "Yes," 1 whispered. "Yet you love me." "Yes. Only—" "Only the baby is more im- porlanl lo you." "I'm sorry," I gasped. "Would you rather go away — nnr»''" alone'.' "No! Oh, no!" I began lo sob hysterically. "1 want you. Duly 1 —I'll always want you. Only can'l ask you—" I'd never lake my job if it were n choice bclwecn il and you," Roberl said. "The way you arc choosing Cecily." 1 knew whal it was like to be on the rack. "The choice has been forced on me— I can'l make il any other way." Again I struggled against him, afraid of my longing to be held tight and safe. "1 do believe that you love me," Robert said. "liven that won't keep me here," I defied him. "Whal I'm trying lo Icll you," Roberl said, "is Ihat it's evident Cecily is more important to you than my new job is lo me. In that case it goes without saying that we'll follow Dcllo—bolh of us." When I raised my face for his kiss my checks were wet with tears of contrition and gratitude. A month after Delia Icfl the city we gave up our apartment. A week later we bought a ramshackle seven-room house within walking distance of Delia's imposing residence in the smaller town. The day I called on Delia lo appiise her of the fact that we were still going to atlcnd the same church, her expression was anything but Christian. "Are you two crazy?" she demanded. I did not reply. Delia knew the answer. * * * There was not much money left for repairs on the house we had bought, although Robert had ideas lor remodeling il and drew plans wilh grcal energy. He did nol find a teaching position, since the new semester had already opened before he applied. He picked up odds and ends of work — he mended a fence and painted a shed for the neighbors; he :;old an article In a national magazine. That check saved u.; from utarvation bul il was six months before he repeated. Meantime he did a little substitute woik in the schools; in all, we- had fairly hard sledding. I had thought Delia would be happy to hear that I was expecting a baby, but I could never count on Delia's reaction to anythin She was wild. "The doctors told you not to attempt railed. it for years yet!" she "I don't want to wait years," I said. "I have to have a child I can call my own, Delia. Half sharing Cecily isn'l enough.' ' "You make me tired." Delia's black eyes fairly assaulted me. "The money I spent on you so thai you could be well again—" No use reminding Delia that she'd had it all back. The big thing to Delia was that she had taken the risk of losing it for my unworthy sake. v * * Corinna's birth was nol as difficult as the doctor had ieared it would be, but if I had expected that a baby in my own home would still my longing for Cecily, J was wrong. Corinna was sickly and cross for months and I only escaped from my apprehension over her through the sturdy prettiness, the lovable litlle-"irl development of my first love. Cecily was surprisingly well behaved, considering the way Delia and Thorne worshipped her. Thorne would have indulged her leasl whim but Delia was selfish enough in spile of her love to demand peace in the home. Cecily had a nursery that cost more to furnish than my whole house; she wore clothes fine enough for a princess, but she ate her vegetables and drank her milk and when she attempted a tantrum she was Comment From the Arkansas Statehouse By BOB BROWN Little Rock, July 2G —(UP) — Gov. Ben Lnney is confident of the outcome of Tuesday's primary election, but he is perturbed about the lethargy of most of the voters. One of his friends walked into the governor's office this week ond offered work in behalf of the chief executive in south Arkansas. "Just see a few of our friends," the governor said, "and tell them to oet out and vote next Tuesday. I'm not worried about winning, but I want a big majority.' A. L. Saundcrs, national housing expediter in Little Rock, said he has been working with Col. Hendrix Lackey, executive director of the Arkansas Resources and Development Commission, to obtain funds to build roads lading away from 1hc national forests—Ouachita and Ozark. Meanwhile, Lackey is working up reports on ihc amount of limber on private lands outside the forests trial could be moved. Saun- dcrs is attempting to iind out how far away from the forest is the roads may bo built. Three small access roads under the program —entirely within the Ouacnita forest — already have been started, according to B. W. Sipe, administrative assistant at the forest. The roads will cost $50,000 and load into the more remote parts of the wooded lands. "Between now and December we expect to move 2 1-2 million feet 01 timber as the result of these three roads," Sipe said. While sponsors of a community properly law in Arkansas are attempting to obtain enough signatures to place it on the November general election ballot, it is revealed that U. S. Secretary of Treasurer John Snydcr — himself an Arkansas man — is thinking along the same lines. One of the two proposed innovations in the federal income tax Jaw now being weighed by the federal treasury is a new approach \o the community property problem. (Eight states have laws permitting husband and wife to divide— for tax purposes — their total income. The process results in a saving of ]5 per cent of the federal tax for a 10,000-a-ycar couple and nearly 30 per cent for a £25,000- a-year couple.) Trie plan would permit every couple to split its income for tax purposes regardless of state laws. A government revenue loss would result, but the present theory is that the loss would be absorbed, inasmuch as Congress is expected to reduce taxes generally anyway. The second federal innovation being worked on would permit an individual to average his income over a certain number of vears, and gel a refund if it had dropped sharply for the current year. Arkansas women have invaded practically every business, and now Gov. Ben Laney says he might appoint a woman ior the first time to the Game and Fish Commission. The idea was brought up in a press conference this week when the governor was asked if he had named anyone to replace Hal Freeman of Cotter whose term had expired. "There are some prominent Dccalur, 111., uly 20 —WP)— A Decalur barlender successfully used a handy fire cxlinguisher to cool Ihe fiery tempers of two'quar- reling customers.

OPA today granted im mediale increases over June 30 price ceilings on coal, shoes and many lesser items. In the first use of pricing powers in M days, Ihe agency also slrippcd contols from a number of consumer items, including several types of clocks and household television receiving sets. All of these actions were pending when price and rent controls lapsed temporarily on July 1 So Jar as today's authorized increases arc concerned, they are temporary and subjecl to revision under standards set up by the OPA revival bill -which President Truman signed into law late ycsler- -'ay. With 142 regulations scheduled for first-day issuance, OPA announced thai: Conl price increases, railing from six to eight cents a ton at retail, are being granted to offset railway freight rale hikes which became efleclive July 1. Cfilings are being raised on all solid fuels, in eluding anthracite,* soft coal, coke, semi-anthracite, liginite, packagec fuel and briquets. Retail ceilings on medium and high-priced shoes in style lines whicn were made during 1942 were increased approximately eight per cent. Low-priced shoes in this cate^ gory were increased aboul 15 per- cenl last month and no further change was made in this category today. OPA said the footwear affected by today's and last month's'order amounts to aboul 30 percenl of total production, and thai Ihe increases will raise the general level of shoe prices about 2.4 percent. Ceilings were eliminated on all but two types of furs which till remained under conlrol on June 30. Today's decontrol order covered these furs: muskrat, marmot, pony, South American spoiled cal Indian lamb, Lincoln lamb, Indian and African kidskin, hare and squirrel. The two furs remaining under ceilings arc moulon lamb and rabbit. Retail prices for work gloves were authorized to go up from one to six cenls a pair, depending on the cost of material and whether manufacturers have granted wage increases. For example, a leather- lined jersey glove wiiich previously sold al retail at $1.13, now may cost $1.19, the top increase permitted. Consumer prices for inexpensive automobile seat covers may be upped by as much as 21 percent, or by about as much as $1.75, under another authorized increase OPA said this should increase the supply of seat covers selling for less than $10 a set. Increases ranging from 20.1 to 21.(j percent also were authorized for insulating firebrick. Permission to include the cost of air-shipping fresh fruits and vegetables was extended through the rest of this year. This provision had been scheduled to expire June 30. Colton rug manufacturers "were authorized to increase their ceilings 3.5 percent and this price hix'c may be passed on to consumers. In an action designed to stimulate production of a larger volume of relatively inexpensive goods, OPA added such products as razor blades and mechanical pencils to a regulation which permits manufacturers to apply for • increased prices on goods in their lowest price lines. There was no indication of how much retail prices might be raised under this action. ; o . Promote irrigation projects. Only Harold Brink.
