News gathering in Raleigh these hot days has become one of the toughest assignments imaginable —not because of the heat, nor oi lack of anything to write about, nor because the news sources have suddenly developed any “hush hush” or hostile attitude. The French had a word for i1 back in 1914-18. They used to shrug off everything from the slightest inconvenience to a really big dis aster with a fatalistic “C’est la guerre.” which translated, means “It’s the war.” And “C’est la guerre” right here and now, so far as getting news is concerned. Go into any state office and the reporter just can’t gel around to asking questions aboui He has first of all to the peren nial “What’s the latest you’ve heard on the war?” and thereaft er is practically bound to swaf ideas on strategy and tactic;, ir addition to predicting with a show of authority who’ll win, when anc how the war will be won. So far as this reporter has ob served, the sentiment of official Raleigh is solidly behind the Presi dent and the more vigorously he turns toward aiding the Allies the more favorable the reaction here It may well be, as so many news men report, that isolation senti ment is still strong west of the A1 leghanies, but if it were left to the decision of Raleigh officials the United States would go post-haste to the rescue of France and Eng land. BEHIND THE SCENES IN WASHINGTON WASHINGTON. — England’s drastic law for the control of men and money in wartime doesn’t go such an awful lot farther than the program the U. S. government has in mind—should this country be forced into war. The British law goes whole-hog and simply turns the entire country and everything in it over to the dis posal of the government. America’s famous industrial mob ilization plan, as drafted by the War and Navy Departments, would accomplish just about the same thing, but it would cushion the shock a little. Theoretically, it would stop short of actual confisca tion of property and conscription of labor; actually, it would go a long way in both directions. This plan is not a law, of course —not yet. It is, however, just what the army and navy want. Legisla tion to put it into effect has been drafted, and the general opinion is that it would go through pretty mch as is if the nation found itself on the verge of war. PRESIDENT COULD DRAFT EXECUTIVES Assuming the industrial mobili zation plan should be adopted, what would be the effect? The President of the United States would be given wartime powers almost equal to those just given Mr. Church,ill. If he deemed it advisable for the successful pros ecution of the war, he could: 1— Draft any executive in any industry and make him run his plant under War Department or ders—or, if he choose, transfer him and put somebody else in his job. 2— Fix prices on anything and everything sold in the United States. 3— Requisition any manufactured product or raw material necessary to the prosecution of the war. 4— Commandeer any factory, or —short of that—compel any manu facturer to make what the gov ernment directed him to make. 5— Close all security exchanges for the duration of the war. 6— Draft every workingman into the army, under a setup which is generally interpreted to mean that any worker could, at any time, be ordered from the factory to the army at the President’s discretion. 7— Control, in short, all of the nation’s resources, through licens ing, rationing, requisitioning, and regulation of the sale, use, trans portation, manufacture or distribu tion of any product. CAPITAL WOULD BE IN STRAIT JACKET Various New Deal critics of this scheme have objected that it would hit labor harder than capital; that control over labor would be abso lute, while provisions limiting war time profits would be less drastic. However that may be, it is certain that capital would find itself in a pretty tight strait jacket. As a matter of tact, laws already Medical Care The first drink out of a glass other than water or milk that was ever offered me was lemonade. This event occurred in 1891 and I remember it well. It was proferred me by a gentleman named Aldrich who had a wooden leg and a rich, friendly voice. The very words which accompanied this legal gift come back to me. He said, “Here, little boy, put this under your belt.” The locale of the proceeding was on Penn Street, just below Seventeenth Street, Kansas City, Missouri, and the house is still standing. At least the porch is. I have sampled, I presume, somewhere roughly in the neigh borhood of a zilion different con coctions in the form of drinks in the interim but I sincerely believe lemonade is the best beverage of all. Not even excepting my first experiments—water and milk. Wa ter and milk, I am bound to praise as a hygienist but they are more or less for emergency purposes when you can’t get anything else. They are kind of like the con stitutuin of the United States:they are there; I am glad of it; I would die for them if necessary, uui. i nave always naa mem anu they arouse enthusiasm in me only when I am exposed to oratory by a health specialist. But lemondade is differnet. Oh I am not talking "only about the hygienic qualities of lemondade though I will probably get around to that in a minqte or two. Lemon ade has Vitamin C, minerals, ca loric value, and fluid content, which last is important now that the summer season is upon us and we have begun to sweat again. Lemonade must be well concoct ed. It isn’t hard to teach- a person to make a good lemonade but it is hard to teach them to keej on taking the trouble to make a good lemonade. You must in the first place have real lemons—not an extract. Thej should be large, juicy, and when ] refer to them as “they” I speal advisedly—there should be the illlPP nf t.hrPP lpmnnc Put nhmil half a teaspoonful of sugar in the glass first and let the lemon juice dissolve the sugar completely Then add the ice. Carbonated wa ter is preferable to fill the gals: with, but plain water will do, the important thing being that you stii the mixture constantly, making the ice do its function, until a lighl film of frozen dew forms on the outside of the glass. Unless yoi are lost to all sense of beautj you will now add something entire ly superfluous to the glass— a sprig of green or a cherry, or a small piece of sliced fruit. You have then a beverage tha1 can be recommended wholeheart edly as healthy, cooling, beneficial in every way, including satisfac tion to the taste buds and th< feelings of the inner man. Unfortunately, at least for rug the days of 1891 have passed ar people no longer devote any lovinj care to the brewing of a glass oi lemonade. Hop and other atricities have taken its place, and there fore, it reputation has undeservedlj declined. I guarantee, however, as these spring days alowly turn intc full-throated summer, and flies, mosquitoes and politicians begir to clutter up the horizon, that ii you will follow my directons as to preparation, you will have a real treat on your hands. Questions and Answers R. M. W.: “What is the caloric value of the following foods: a chocolate almond bar, a plain chocolate bar, a serving of the breast of a baked duck; lettuce, limburger cheese and fruit cake?” Answer—You do not state how much of any of these articles. Cal ories depend on weight. Your ques is like asking “How many apples can I put in a box?” Chocolate bars come in different sizes. I would say that two or three ave rage healthy bites of a chocolate almond bar would amount to 85 calories, of a plain chocolate bar about 100. An average serving of the breast of baked duck is about 175 calories. The lettuce, limburger cheese and fruit cake combination i.Q flhftllt 900 eolnrioc L. E. : “Please give an exercise for reducing the stomach. All my extra pounds want to go there. I am five and one-half feet tall, weight 123, am 33 year old.” Answer—It is very debatable whether special exercises will re duce special parts of the boday. 1 have seen some claims, supported by photographs, which would indi cate . lat such exercises as lying on the back and raising both legs together, 40 times morning and evening will do so. All exercises of this kind should be accompanied by diet. 2 on the books give the President pretty broad powers. Section 120 of the National Defense Act au thorizes him to place compulsory orders for either finished products or raw materials, with government seizure of the plant the penalty for loncompliance. The Naval Emerg ency Fund act grants similar pow ers, specfically broadened to in elude aircraft plants and with the vords “raw material” so defined is to include any commodity out of vhich war materials are made. 1 W. P. A. Is Defended By Hardware Leader CHARLESTON, S. C., June 12. —(/P)—President Max Washburn of Shelby, N. C., told the hard ware association of the Caroiinas yesterday that the current critic ism of WPA was neither just nor funny but even if it were so, it wouldn’t be the only shovel lean ing done. ' “The hardware business,” he said, “also has its shovel on which, at times, it is tempted to lean. But the shovel of most im portant interest is the one that business leans on. The year 1940 approaches its third quarter as it is yet to be demonstrated that all even are trying to get back on sections of American business the highway under their own power.” Wage-Hour Inspectors Check Lumber Plants ELIZABETH CITY, June 12—UP) —Lumber plants and sawmills are being inspected in the first phase fo the nation-wide check-up on the lumber industry’s compliance with the wage-hour law. Inspectors of the state labor de partment and the federal wage hour administration have complet ed inspection of nine large lumber plants and 40 sawmills in Pas quotank county. The inspectors planned to spend today and tomorrow in Currituck, Camden, Pasquotank, Chowan and Perquimans counties. Extent of violations in the saw mills had not been determined last night. Only minor violations were found in the large lumber plants. 2 Conference Scheduled On New Tobacco Plan RALEIGH, June 12.—UP)—Con ferences were held today in Kins ton, Raleigh, Troy, Lumberton and Halifax to acquaint agricultural leaders with provisions of the new three-year tobacco control plan on which farmers will vote next month. Conferences will be held tomor row in Williamston, Wilson, Tay lorsville, Winston-Salem, Whiteville and Durham; and Friday in Greens boro, Kenansville, Louisburg, New Bern and Edenton.

Plant Swept By Fire WILLIAMSTON, June 12 —UP— Fire chief G. P. Hall said today he believed a fire which destroyed Saunders and Cox lumber com pany, three dwellings and a filling station caused a total loss of $40, 000. The blaze started yesterday about noon. The intense heat and smoke overcame several firemen as they prevented the fire from spreading to a large lumber sup ply and the river dock. 2 ADVERTISEMENTS SOOTHES BABY'S SKIN .when chafed, irritated.
