I (EDITOR'S NOTE When opinions are expressed In these columns, they are those of Western Newspaper Union's news analysts and not necessarily of this newspaper.) Beleased by Western Newspaper Union Gem Henry H. Arnold, chief of the U. S. army air force, delivers a diploma to his son, Cadet William Bruce Arnold, a member of the 1943 grgduating class at the United States Military academy at West Point, FRENCH UNITY: Worth Waiting for Although General Giraud and General DeGaulle at first could not agree any better at close range in Algiers than they had at long range between Africa and London, 'Allied leaders were confident that factional gutfs would be hurdled and long. hoped-for F/-ench unity would be consummated. This optimistic view was Justified when a "French committee of na- tinnal liberation." headed Jointly by Generals De Gaulle and Giraud, was formally established to "pursue the war at the side of the Allies until total victory over the enemy pow- ers." Comprising a seven-man group which eventually will be expanded to nine, the new liberation committee will direct the French war effort un- til France is freed and able to elect |as own government. In addition to the co-presidents, Giraud and De- Gaulle, the committee includes Gen. Alphonse George and Jean Monnet, named by Giraud; Rene Massigli and Andre Philip, appointed by De- Gaulle; and Gen. Georges Catroux, designated by both presidents. That the new committee meant business was immediately apparent by personnel replacements that eliminated French-African officials with former Vichy ties. COAL: WLB Sustained When President Roosevelt, acting as commander-in-chief, tersely or- dered the 500.000 striking mine work- ers back to work after a 30-day truce had been ended by another walkout, he had left the next move squarely up to mine union chief John L. Lewis. In his brief statement the Presi- dent did not consider the possibility that his order might 5e ignored. But measures of a stern and effective nature were open to him and the force of public opinion was mar- shaled overwhelmingly behind him kin the event of continued mine work stoppage. The President's order had com- pletely supported the War Labor board which Mr. Lewis and his Unit- ed Mine Workers had defied, setting forth plainly that "Just as soon as the miners return to work, the dis- position of the dispute . .. will forthwith proceed under the juris- diction of the War Labor board." :ARGENTINA : Neutrality at Stake? While close censorship had veiled early reports of the "military move- ment" in Argentina, observers were confident that it concerned the course of the nation's future international poli'cy--whether the government would pursue its trend of benevolent neutrality toward the Axis, or would follow the rest of South America in breaking with the Axis. The military reaction gained added i significance, coming as it did on the eve of the Conservative party's na- tional convention preceding the Presidential elections. For this con- vention had been scheduled to pro- claim Senate President Robustiano Patron Costas as its candidate. Costas had been endorsed by "neu- trality-minded" President Ramon Castillo. CHINA: .laps Lose 30,000 As Chinese forces had continued to press back the Jap invaders in the middle Yangtze valley, a report from Generalissimo Chiang Kai- shek's headquarters disclosed that the drive in Central China toward Chungking had cost the enemy more than 30,000 casualties In a two-week period. The Tokyo radio admitted the re- verses in a report announcing that the Jap invasion forces had retired to previously prepared positions. Principal theater of Chinese gains was the Yangtze river in southern Hupeh province and northern Hu- nan. Here General Chiang's forces wiped out encircled enemy units and seized huge stocks of supplies and equipment, a communique said. As a first step in the recapture of stra- tegic Ichang, the Chinese had re- gained possession of all points around Changyang, strongly held "doorway" to Ichang. MEDITERRANEAN: Mussolini at Bay Mussolini's defenses at sea had been no more impressive than in the air when Allied forces struck at the island approaches to the "soft un- derbelly" of Italy. Target of the first assaults was the island of Pantelleria, closest of Italy's Mediterranean outposts to Af- rica. Here Allied warships made heavy bombardments that were un- opposed. The Italian fleet that had been reported on the alert had made no effort to come out and fight for l Pantelleria which already had been shaken by Allied bombers. In none of the attacks did the Allied fleet units suffer casualties. The only re- sistance offered was from the in- effective Italian shore batteries. Only 45 miles from the tip of Tunisia's Cap Bon peninsula, Pan- telleria was an easily reached tar- get for Allied air forces. As wave after wave of borbers swept over the island blowing up port facilities, other Allied planes kept up a dam- aging series of forays against Sicily and Sardinia. The extent to which the Mediter- ranean was becoming an Allied lake was indicated by a report announc- ing that the Allied destroyers had sunk two merchant vessels apd an esdorting torpedo boat and driven a burning Italian destroyer ashore. TRADE PACTS : Two Years More Final approval by the senate of President Roosevelt's reciprocal trade agreements program came after administration supporters, aid- ed by some Republicans, defeated five amendments that would have restricted the President's authority. The house had previously voted fa- vorably. The President had 'originally asked for a three-year extension. But because this would throw the policy into the next presidential administration for more than a year, both house and senate measures cut it to two years. The senate s action, however, meant that members of the United Nations could be assured that this government's present trade pol. icy would be continued until June 12, 1945, or nearly five months after the next presidential inauguration. 1 I HIGHLIGHTS i. the week's new, t BONDS: The average American family should invest 25 cents of ev- erydollar of income in war bonds, Secretary of the Treasury Morgen- thau declared. * COAL: Stocks of all anthracite Coal in Canada were ordered frozen according to an order issued by J.

Lol g Trousers Adopted During French Revolution Wartime services of many kinds undertaken by women account for the fact that there are more wear- ing trousers today than ever be- fore. It was during a period of great national stress that men adopted the fashion of wearing long trou- sers. Before the days of the French Revolution well-dressed men fa- vored knee breeches, while the poorer people wore blue Linen pantaloons. When the French monarchy fell, anyone whose dress suggested that he might be an aristocrat went in danger of his life. Consequently, men of all classes began to wear long trou- sers. England did not take kindly to the fashion when it was introduced to that country by the prince re- gent. Even the duke of Welling- ton was refused admission to a reception in London because he was wearing long trousers. a front frock is slated for wide popularity this spring. It has a softly tailored, distinguished look and if done in one of the new prints, should be most flattering. Pattern No. 8360 is in sizes 14, 16, 18. 20; 40. 42 and 44.

In the Navy a floor is a "deck," doors are "bulkheads," down- stairs is "below," and a cigarette is a "Camel." At least, Camel is the favorite cigarette among Navy men, as it is among men'in the Army, Marines, and Coast Guard. (Based on actual sales records from service men's stores.) And a carton of Camels is a favorite gift. Though there are now Post Office restrictions on packages to overseas Army men, you can still send Camels to soldiers in the U.

These elaborat- ed doughnuts are just right to serve with coffee after the club or committee meeting. If you want to serve a meatless meal and conserve on oven heat bake these together: macaroni and cheese, squash, corn bread and ap- ple pudding. All the extras you'll need will be fruit and a beverage. Always pull wrenches toward you. Always cut away with a knife from you. If some article of wearing ap- parel or linen has too much bluing in it, soak for several hours in one quart of warm water with two tablespoons of vinegar in it. Wash out in the usual way. Keep everything in its proper place to reduce night accidents. A layer of tomato ketchup poured over the top of beans while baking will cook through the beans and add much totheir flavor. Corn meal used in puddings, or mush, should be thoroughly mixed in a little cold water before hot water is added. It then will not be lumpy.
