Vishinsky’s answer was “And I i yours. j Mrs. Pandit, the only woman: ; chief delegate at the UN, has de- j voted most of her energies at j this session to problems of trus-! I teeship. A feeling of drama raced through the general as sembly hall when this slim, dark woman, clad in a flowing gold arid white sari, walked to the rostrum to dead eL.que.tly that Southwest Africa be placed un-! der trusteeship. Nehru Is Brother Mrs. Pandit’s position as head of a delegation is unique in an other way. She receives her in structions on India’s position from her brother, Pandit Jawa harlal Nehru, head of the Indian government. Mrs. Gertrude Sekaninova, of Czechoslovakia, the only woman delegate from eastern Europe, feels at home in the verbal wranglings of the political com mittee, for she practiced law in Prague before the war. Mrs. Se kaninova’s lawyer husband was executed by the Nazis and she was interned for over two years. After her liberatoin in April, 1945, this intense intelligent woman, still very nervous as a result of her experiences in a concentration camp, was named counselor of the Czech ministry of foreign affairs. Most of the women delegates at the UN are gathered around the oval conference table in the Social, Humanitarian and Cul tural Committee. Clamour gal of the committee is Senora Amalia De Castillo Le don. Senora Ledon, probably the most important woman in offi cial circles of Mexico, is both a political expert and a play wright. A sophisticated-iooKing Dionne with gray green eyes, Senora Ledon could win hands down in a contest for the best-drsssed woman of the UN. Mme. Marie Helene Lefau cheux of France, a sparkling, little brunette who has just left for home, is glad that men and women work together at the UN because she feels women are better off when they steer clear of the strictly feminine ap proach. No Old Maids There are four former school teachers on the UN social com mittee—and not one old ma?d in the group. Mrs. Florence Paton of the United Kingdom, a laborite member of Parliament and the wife of an MP, was a history teacher. During the war she taught children who remained in London during the bltiz. Mrs. Enid Roberts of New Zealand, a pleasant looking whitehaired woman, was a school teacher for a number of years and initiated the first adult educational program among the adults of the Maori peonle of New Zealand. The other, two school teachers in the committee are from the Near East. Mrs. Badia Afnan, before she was named alternate representative for the delegation of Iraq, was chief inspector of women’s schools in her country. Mrs. Alice Cosma of Syria, who recevied her B S. and M A de grees from Columbia University, was principal of girls schools in Syria for eight years. ! M-_ A STORY TO STIR YOUR HEART!

An industry-government com mittee said the suction of over flowing gasoline from a wing tank into the cabin heating sys tem caused the fire aboard an American Airlines DC-6 which made an emergency landing at Gallup, N. M., on Nov. 11 with out injury to the 25 occupants. The statement, issued by Civil Aeronautics Administrator M. P. Wright, said the same trou ble “probably caused” the fire which sent a United Air Lines DC-6 to the ground at Bryce Canyon, Utah, on Oct. 24 with a loss of 52 lives. After the American Airlines plane’s emergency landing in New Mexico, all airlines using the big new four-engine trans ports suspended them from service. The action had the ap proval of the Douglas Aircraft Co., manufacturer of the plane. Today’s official statement confirmed a report on the cause of the American fire given to reporters last week by Lt. Col. Henry T. Myers, pilot of Presi dent Truman’s personal DC-6, The Independence. Myers grounded the Presidential transport when the airlines withdrew theirs from service. He flew The Independence to Santa Monica, Cal., where the | *4.4 PROOP I 100% Neutral Spirits Distilled from Grain | MOOTS PUT CIH C0„ UNDER. H. i. Douglas Company will make necessary modifications. Experts who have been track ing down the causes of the two fires represent the Civil Aero nautics Administration, the Civil Aeronautics Board, the airlines using the planes, the manufacturers and the Air Lines Pilots Association (AFL). Wright said “this cooperative endeavor by all interested groups will result in the DC-6 returning to service with safety features added that represent the best thinking of the coun try’s aeronautical experts.” The committee did not esti mate when the 300 mile an hour ships would return to the air. It said besides modiciations to prevent the “hazard” of g as be ing drawn into the cabin heater “still other changes may be re quired before the plane is re turned to service.” BEAKS HAVE SPECIAL USES Birds have many special types of beaks.
