Poge Two HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Access of World Press to Peace Conference Considered an Important Forward Step By DeWITT MacKENZI E AP Foreign Affairs Anaylst Hats off to the rules committee of the peace conference for its action in voting to allow the press free access to yroofs of this meeting which is so im- psittant to the rehabilitation of Ku- rope and contently to world stability. It was Secretary of State Byrnes who made the motion for freedom of the press and — strange to re- .poet — he was immediately supported by Soviel Foreign "Minister Molotov. It hasn't been often that the American and Soviet statesmen have found immediate agreement on any subject, and so this was a notable occasion. It was particularly notetohy be; cause Russia's ideas about freedom of the press are quiet difiesent from those of the western democracies. Moscow doesn't believe in .allowing publication of anything which the government disapproves. An American source quoted Molotov as saying that some Soviet proposals had been reported inaccurately recently. The foreign minister thought this could be remedied it. reporters were allowed to attend committee meetings. Thus with the sponsorship of the world's two most powerful nations, Ihe press finally got a break. And the significance of this? Well, freedom of the press is the most accusate barometer there is by which to gauge the freedom of the peoples concerned. If there is no freedom of the press there is repression of other rights. - It's to be hoped that the present 1 peace conference — and busequent conferences — will throw open their doors to reporters. I've re. ported so many foreign confer- .ences of one kind or another that I should have to refer to my files to recall the number.

And we had to move a lot of dirt to get at the re. The Vensaillies peace conference of a generation ago was a ; r air example. The American and British delegations declared for open sessions, but the French, Italians and Japanese favored secrecy — and they meant secrecy; President Wilson and Prime Minister David Lloyd George made a fight for us, and some concessions were granted, but for Ihe mosl parl it was the same old story. Conference communiques were issued daily to give us what was good for us to know. The various delegations also had press headquarters and at least the American and British special press arrangements were very helpful. For Ihe most part, however, we members of. the foreign legion of reporters depended on the private sources which we had built up over the years. The reporter who had a good friend on one of the delegations was indeed lucky. From time to time distinguished statesmen on the various delegations held press conferences at which they matched wits with the newspaper folk. I never shall forget one such meeting with the late Earl of Balfour The of the "Balfour declaration" regarding a national home for the Jews). Balfour was second British plenipotentiary at the conference and was one of the signers of the treaty. He also was just about the smoothest thing I ever encountered in the way of diplomats. On this occasion the Chester- fieldian and silver-tongued slates- man met perhaps sevenly-five of us reporters of various nationalities. He answered questions readily and apparently with the utmost candor for an hour or so, and pencils tlew as notes were taken. When the meeting was over a young American reporter rushed up to me and, with the sweat streaming down his worried countenance, said: "I beg your pardon, but I am hew at the conference and I need some help.

Main Police Have Knife Which Heirens Used Chicago, July 3\ — (UP) — Stale's authorities disclosed today that they were in possession of the kjiife which William Heirens, 17, allegedly used in dismembering the body of six-year-old Suzanne Degnan. Topflight police investigators were examining the knife Tor fingerprints and possible bits of human flesh and hair which, if found, would greatly strengthen the circumstantial case against Heirens, even in the absence of a written confession. It was learned that Heirens, who agreed to confess the Degnan and two other murders, then balked al the last minute, had described in oral admissions how he tossed the knife on an "I," track after kidnapping and killing little Suzanne last Jan. 7. State's Attorney William J. Tuohy said yesterday that he had no alternative but to "go ahead with the case" after the youth reneged on piomises to describe the harrowing details of the three murders.

By JAMES TARLOW Washington. July lil —(/P)—Almost all the senators and ri-pre- senativc-s defeated for re-election this year can get a congressional pension. Here's how it goes: 1. To t'.et a pension, a member of Congress must nave .served at least six years and bi> (il! years nld. '2. It he's served six years bul is less than (12, hi- can get ci iMision but will have to wait till he's (i'-i to start drawing it. This pension system is pa:-l of a bill which Congress h a s just ' passed, a bill to i eorgani/e Congress. President Truman will soon .sign it inlo law. But if a member wants a pension, he must do these two •things: 1. He must say ho wants a pension. He just doesn't get il automatically even though lie's served six years and is G2 years old. 2. He must contribute to the pension fund a percentage of his yearly salary of $10.000 for at least five j years ot nis congressional service. The smallest payment a congressman can make to the pension fund for those five years of .service is $2,716. Here's an example of how it works: Senator Jones, elected to a G- year term in , 1040, was defeated for ve-t-lection this • year. He's served six -years.- - ^.'. '.' : 1: : '.„-, He leaves congress when his term ends next Jan. 2, -goes into private business, never goes back lo congress. But lie's only SO years old and he wants a pension for those h'ix years he served. So he deposils lhal $2,716 for five of his six years in congress and wails till he's 02. Then, although he's in private business and 12 years out of congress, he starts drawing for the rest of his life about $l,4(j, r > a year. Suppose a member of congress had served more than six years and leaves congress lie could do one of two things: 1. He could pay inlo Ihe pension fund for only those last .five years ot his service. But he'd get a certain amount of credit, and added pension money, Cor those years above five which he served.

Atomic Battleships Seen in Future by Scientists Baltimore, July ;iO —(/I 1 )— Dr. Robert D. Fowler, atomic energy expert and professor of Chemistry at Ihe Johns Hopkins university, predicts Unit atomic-powered battleships may be a reality within the next two to i'ive years. Vice Admiral E. L. Cochrano, chief of the Navy Department's Bureau of Ships, was quoted yesterday in a dispatch from Bikini atoll as saying lhat atomic energy would be used to propel American battleships within the next 10 years. Dr. Fowler, an early experimenter in th cfield o f nuclear physics, said: "II can happen a lot sooner than that. If the navy is really serious about it, I think a battleship could be equipped with an atomic power plant within the next two to live years." o— Feed phosphate to the sotL The Doctor Says: By WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D. t Wrlttcn for NEA Service Epidemics of summer cold start In August and extend into the fall months. As far as is known, the same virus which causes the winter variety of cold is responsible for the summer type. The common cold is highly contagious. The infection is spread to susceptible persons in the first 24 to '18 hours. Resistance varies from person to person, and it varies in Ihc same individual from lime to time throughout the year. Common-cold epidemics prevail for at least six months out of the year. Following recovery from a cold, an individual may enjoy an immunity for a month or two. This fact mny account for the periodicity of the cold outbreak, which regularly come in January and February, April and May, and August and September. The average person has two to three cola's a year. SHOW ALLERGIC SYMPTOMS Summer colds arc often confused with allergic reaction in the nose as the symptoms (swollen mucus, membrane, watery discharge, in- lercfrcncc with breathing, sneezing, and throat irritation; arc identical. Some severe allergic reactions in known hay-fever victims arc caused by complicating common- cold virus infections. The common cold is not a clear- cue disease, for other infections in the body start with symptoms resembling the common cold. Real pr&ff that the infection is caused by the common-cold virus is usually lacking, because of the technical difficulty of locating the virus. Respiratory infections in children should be observed with an open mind until their true nature is revealed. In one-third of upper respiratory infections apparently caused by the common-cold virus, the disease subsidies, without treatment, in 48 hours. Allergic reactions in the nose may result from foods. Summer vacationists have been known to stuff themselves with milk and thus to develop an allergic reaction, even though they arc not upset by milk in ordinary amounts. New foods, notably shellfish, also cause allergic nose difficulties winch may be called "colds." COLDS AND WEATHER The relationship between the onset of the virus colds and changes in the weather has been observed on shipboard. When the ship passed through a cold current after cruising in warm waters, colds increased sharply. Some observers believe that the common-cold virus is a constant inhabitant of the human nose which is activated by sudden drops in temperature. Tht treatment of a summer cold is the same as that for a cold at any other time of the year.

Louise Emery , 1946, NEA SERVICE, INC. The Story: Cecily's wedding is over at last. But never will I 'ergot the cruel thing I did to her. And Delia, Cecily's mother, will never forgive me. I have adored Cecily since she was a baby—kept on adoring her even after I married Robert and my daughter Coririna was P. 01 '! 1 ', .V OI1 K "R°' to °. I knew that Delia was raising Cecily to be an insufferable snob, and mat she was'Jealous of my love for her. One day when Cecily was ten ! and Corinna eight, the two little fiirls were practicing dance steps together.. Corinna tripped and Cecily slapped her. It was more than I could satnd. Delia refused to do anything. Delia look Cecily across my knee and spanked her. IX I saw Delia standing still, quietly staring at mo. She was pale biit she lei me hold Cecily until my very fingertips were sated with Ihe feel of her small, warm body. Al lasl I whispered to Cecily lo run and wash her face and find me a dry hanky. "She'll probably be sick tonight," Delia commented when Cecily had left the room, but that was all she ever said about my explosion. . The rehearsals were astonishingly pleasant after that and Delia made no efforts to get rid of me while they were going on. She was eager for Cecily lo appear before one of the lown's major clubs so that the paper would have to call off its boycott and give Cecily a write-up that Myrtle Ralston might conceivably see I didn't think that Mrs. Ralston would be impressed, but Delia was convinced thai an inch o( no'w,s- prml was as vilal lo every one as il was lo her. Unfortunately tbc firsl call that came aflcr Ihc children had perfected their act was lo Ihc Marlin Playground Annual Fcslival. Delia lurncd up her nose al it. I didn't spend a fortune on costumes so that Cecily could dance in front of those blackamoors." I didn't argue. Corinna could dance alone—and I wanted to sec Delia's face when she discovered who had comprised half the adult audience. However, although she still was not taking the town newspaper she found one in the beauty parlor, read the advance notice of the Fcslival and saw Ihe error of her ways. Patrons of the playground were Ihc town's elite, among them the Ralstons, and they all attended the annual Festivals religiously as their civic duty. They brought their children, too, many of whom were regular habitues of the recreation center, as Delia would have discovered if she had ever taken the trouble to invesli- gale. Because of Ihe news ilem Cecily and Corinna were inlroduced together the evening of the gala affair before an audience that packed the big gymnasium. Corinna's welcome was assured because of Robert and her previous performances around town. Cecily could not but share in the opening ap- plause lhat greeted Corinna, but the crescendo was in tribute to her as she followed Corinna onto the stage. Even al 10 Cecily had that quality which quickens imagination. But Corinna managed to hold her own, I saw, relieved. She had warmth where Cecily hay mystery Corinna was Ihe earthy 'and'tfam'il- nir while Cecily's very remoteness challenged and leased. I doubt thai anyone whq ever saw Cecily quite forgot her. I'm sure that thousands ol people have suddenly and inexplicably recalled her face and wondered why of all faces seen in their crowded daily lives, hers should achieve a sort of immortality within Iho subconscious. No one who saw her lhat night has ever forgotten her, I know, and because of her they remembered Corinna—two little girls smiling breathlessly behind the colored footlights, their young faces bright with excitement, their slim child bodies sparkling in brief, skintight panties and bras of gold sequins. Over these they wore filled red- ingoles of while slarchcd net, made w' l , h r> uffs of sleeves and short, full ruffled skirts. Although we used recordings for practice. Delia had hired a popular pianist from Iho city lo play for their public appearance. 1 was to pay half the cost of that. I felt Robert's hand gripping mine tightly as 1 loaned against him in the crowd. On his face was a pride so loving and tender, so completely oblivious to what those fragile costumes had. cost him that my heart ached with its guilt. Oh I've paid my ounce of flesh for every moment of Cecily I boughl during these past years—robbing those whom I also loved, and suffering because they could nol have what I look from them to give to Cccilv. Delia stood near me. squinting at Cecily, completely absorbed in her. We had no business being oul in Ihe crowd, since we were needed for costume changes backstage, but we simply could nol forego seeing our small artists make their debut together. Al least it was the two of them that I saw. Delia was interested only in Cecily. I nudged Delia when it was lime lo head backslage. She turned absently and almost bumped into Myrtle Ralston, standing with her arm about Ihc shoulders of her 12- year-old son. The boy's lips were parted as he stared toward Ihe slage. II was evidenl that he, too, had come under Cecily's witchery. Delia paused a precious instant to lake them in with bindictivc eyes and then she threw me a glance of triumph which I did no fully understand for several years. You would have thought Pavlov;: or Isadore Duncan had wandered onto the slage the way the audience stormed and shouted for encores after Ihe girls had finished their numbers. Even Corinna, accustomed to applause, was roundeycd and a little frightened by the clamor. Delia's color was high. Gratification stuck out all over her. The tension within me relaxed. (To Be Continued) British Discover Factory in Germany That Made High Grade of Butter From Coal By JAMES DEVLIN (For Hal Boyle) Wilton, Germany, July 31 —(/P) — A factory thai makes butter from coal was one of the prizes discovered by Ihc Brilish in Iheir zone of Germany. "II is cxcellenl bullcr and I doubl if anyone ever would guess il was synthetic," said one Brilish official ,vho sampled il.

That, he added, was without any financial help from a Nazi regime lhal demanded "guns instead of Duller." The synthetic butter can keep without refrigeration.

Government Is Probing Klan Activities By BRACK CURRY Washington, July 31 —(/I 5 )— The Justice Department disclosed today lhal it iii investigating Ku Klux Klan aclivilies in seven states to determine whether federal laws are being violated. The deparlmcnl said court action will be instituted against the Klan if such violations arc uncovered. Evidence involving any violations of slate laws will be turned over lo slale authorities, if requested. The investigation is being made under the direction of the department's civil rights section in New York, Michigan, Tennessee, .Florida, California, Mississippi and Georgia. However, complaints are being received from all parts of the country about the resurgent Klan's activities. The originators include individuals, labor unions, civil rights societies and other organizations. Some name dates, places and persons involved in alleged Klan acts. All such complaints are turned over 'to the FBI which makes investigalions for Ihe civil rights section. The department expects a sharp increase in Klan activity as a re suit of Negro voting in southern primaries, the dislocation of populations resulting from ^the war, congested living conditions and ihe other aftermaths of war. The department began checking Klan activities shortly before At- lorney General Tom Clark assailed the hooded order a speech at Philadelphia on May 18. At thai time, Clark said "we must rid ourselves of such things as organized bigotry — and I mean specifically such an excrescence as the Ku Klux Klan." The department's investigation includes I wo specific complaints of alleged Klan intimidation against Negroes. The second complaint alleges that before the Georgia primary election a masked band of white people visited a number of Negro houses in one county, shot inlo several houses and warned Ihc Negroes against voting.

The boy But my mother highly disapproves of this. She wants me to go steady with one boy and says I will get talked about if I go with so many. She only lels me go out once a week, on Sunday night, when my date and I, whoever he is, go to church. She will not even let me do that if I haven't done my housework lo please ner. Will you help me, please? PUZZLED ANSWER: I am afraid no one can help you because your molher is s far behind the limes in her ideas that she will never catch up wilh Ihe procession and sec what a mistake she is making in trying to tie you down to one boy, instead of you being left free lo look the whole field over and see which one you prefer. Mother Too Out-of-date Her idea is thai a girl's associ- alion with -a boy should be stricl- ly wilh matrimony in view, and that it docsnt mailer whether the boy is congenial or no, or how she feels towards him, or whether she wants him for a husband or not. His being a meal lickel is all that counts. She has no conception of the pleasures, and of Ihe mul- ual prolil and education il is to both of them, for girls and boys just to be friends who play around together, with no thought of any love-making or any sentimental complications whatever. It is a pity that your mother hampers you by her old-fashioned views on this subject. But don't let her force you lo hang yourself round one boy's neck. The "keeping company" ctislom is suicidal for girls because il makes Ihem the victim of a boy's carpricc, and if he gets tired of her, as he so often does, she is jusl simply dil- chcd. Dear Dorothy Dix: I am a widow in my late Ihirlics and very much in love with a man in his early twenties. At times he seems to care a lot for me and at others times he is very indifferent. We arc of different natures. He is full of life, likes to dance and go places; but I don't enjoy dancing or going about and I wonder if I would be jealous of his younger friends. PANTYWAISTS San Francisco, July 31 — (R>) — The mystery of how Ihe navy happened to have 312 dozen diapers has been solved. They really weren't diapers at all, the War Assets Administralion explained .They were arm slings. Bui knowing Ihrce - cornered pants slill are hard lo gel Ihe \VAA offered the 27-inch squares on sale as diapers. Veterans bought them all in a few hours. What chance of happiness would ANSWEO. None al all. There is would know that he had put himself in a ridiculous position in having a wife thai everyone mistbok for his molher, and Ihe firsl lime he was leased about you and you saw that he was ashamed of you, your marriage would go on the rocks. It is youth lo youth. 'Age and youth, especially when the Woman is the older, can never be happy logesther. So let the boys go, 1 as he evidently desires to do, and marry some man in your own age class. Believe me, lady, there is no such torturing jealously in the world as thai which eals al the heart of an old wife of a boy husband. Der Miss Dix: I am a girl of 17, very unhappy, because I have homely legs. Mine are thin and bowed, and I think lhat must be the reason thai 1 have no dales. For il seems lhal Ihe boys o£ loday all fall for girls with legs like the'pictures in Ihe papers. Do you Ihink lhal is true, and is there anything I can do about it? SAD SACK ANSWER: The plaslic surgeons seem able nowadays lo n:ske anyone over according to their taste so why don't you consult one and : sec if he can't take the bow out of your legs? But why don't you offset your defect by making yourself so agreeable and entertaining, and by learning to dance so well that nobody will look at your lower extremities? Anyway, there is comfort for you in the past thai long skirls arc coming in, and soon your legs will jusl be a secrel between you and your Maker. (The Bell Syndicate, Inc) James & Moore 504 So.
