Drastic Steps
Taken By Gov’t
In Auto Strikes
DETROIT, Jan. 14. — James P.
Dewey, Federal labor conciliator, an
nounced yesterday that as “a defense
measure” he would insist that all
plants of the Eaton Manufacturing
Co. be reopened and all striking em
ployees put back to work.
The CIO strike began at the Eaton
plant in Saginaw, Mich., and has
spread to the company’s factories in
Detroit, Battle Creek, and Marshall
in Michigan and Cleveland, Ohio.
About 3,600 workers are affected.
“This marks the first time such a
drastic step has been taken anywhere
in the country,” said Dewey in an
nouncing his demand that the plants
be reopened.
Simple Ways Suggested!
. To Prevent Nervousness
Learn to relax, both at work and
during leisure hours, if you want to
avoid that bugaboo of civilization,
nervous tension, Leonard Allen, New
York, advises. Here are a few sim
ple suggestions:
At work avoid the strain of monot
ony and immobility; get up and
stretch or walk about for a few mo
ments each hour. Plan a complete
break from activity sometime dur
ing the day.
Check up periodically to see
whether your workday activities are
all aimed directly at the attainment
of your goal. Tolerate useless activ
ities only as recreation. Keep away
from unnecessary deadlines.
If you are a housewife, Mr. Allen
suggests, “keep a chair or. stool in
the kitchen so that you may be seat
ed while you work. Avoid body
strain by wearing sensible shoes, not
bedroom slippers. Eat at mealtime,
and keep away from the icebox be
tween times. Set aside a regular
rest period each day. Do not be
excessively fussy about housework;
strike a happy medium instead.”
During your leisure, learn to for
get your work entirely. Recreation
should not involve activity too close
ly resembling your work. Nor is it
wise to clutter your leisure time
with ceaseless activity. “People un
wisely assume that vigorous recrea
tional activity will naturally neutral
ize tension developed on their jobs,
but this may not be true,” the author
, says. “Unless rest is an intermedi
ary, new exertion will simply create
added strain. Always devote a cer
tain portion of your leisure to com
plete rest.” .
Wanted: Hot Flugelhorn

The following classified ad ap
peared in a newspaper:
“MUSICIAN: hot flugelhorn play
er, must be able to take solos, swing
blues. Apply W. W. Herman, Circle
7-0162.
It seemed like a good idea to find
out what a flugelhorn was, nobody
around the office knowing, except
perhaps H. A. S., whose day off it
was. A call elicited the following:
“A flugelhorn is a four-valved in
strument, a little larger than a trum
pet, but resembling a trumpet in
gize, shape, and form. Its pitch is
B-flat, producing a tone between a
trumpet and a trombone. The tech
nical manipulation is that of a trum
pet
“The lip action in the blowing of
tha instrument is somewhere be
tween that for a trumpet and a trom
bone, and needs special aptitude in
blowing. The technical name for the
lip action is ‘embouchure.’ The in
strumert has a baritone vov

Secretary Greene,
Of Central Body,
Laid Up With Flu
At the meeting last Wednesday
night (January 8th) our secretary,
William S. Greene, got up out of a
“flu” bed and came to the meeting.
Went home and back to bed where he
has been ever since, or rather “house
bound.” While he is reported on the
“upgrade,” he is still not a well man.
Being a Disabled Veteran and a
strong bulwark in the house of the
local A. F. of L., we all wish for him
a speedy recovery.
Many Aids Make Task
Of Homemaker Pleasant
The homemaker of today has
many aids to make her task easy
and pleasant, and not the least of
these is the supply of ready-to-serve
meats which is in the shops, waiting
to be transferred to her table or to
be kept on hand on her emergency
shelf for unexpected guests or quick
family meals.
One advantage this array of
cooked meats, meat loaves and sau
sages affords is that they can be
very attractively arranged. The cold
meat platter can be as colorful and
dainty and pleasing to the eye as
your center-piece of flowers. With
thin slices of the roast or meat loaf
cooked in your own oven, you can
obtain variety by choosing several
slices of different kinds of ready-to
serve meats.
Don’t forget to include slices of
various sausages when making up
your meat platter. We are becom
ing quite sophisticated in our tastes
in recent years and are making use
more and more of the great vari
ety of sausages available in this
country introduced from various
parts of Europe where they originat
ed.
With the popularity of buffet serv
ice for luncheons, supper parties,
and for easy porch meals so delight
ful during the summer, the cold
meat platter has become more and
more important as the center of the
meal, and hostesses are taking pride
in the pretty arrangements they can
achieve.
But the use of these ready-to-serve
meats is by no means limited to the
buffet meal or to serving them sliced
cold. They can be heated alone or
in combination with vegetables, and
used in many tempting and easily
prepared mein dishes.
Refugees Bun Money
To Escape Confiscation
Some of the people who evacuated
foreign branches of the big movie
companies are said to have made •
pleasant discovery that it’s possible
to take money out of Hitler’s Eu
rope. A man who claims to have
done it told how it was done.
First he liquidated everything he
owned. Then, by paying a premium,
he managed to change his marks
into U. S. currency.
This money was taken to an
American diplomatic representative
and, after being examined, was
burned there by its owner. The of
ficial then provided a document
saying that to his certain knowledge
bills of such-and-such denominations
and serial numbers had been com
pletely destroyed while in the pos
session of Mr. So-and-So.
The latter, after returning to this
country, presented the document,
and eventually received new cur
rency.
Asked how about our law against
mutilating or defacing U. S. money,
Mr. So-and-So said he guessed the
law wouldn't apply over there or
maybe that the currency could be
considered lost to use and there
fore already destroyed before he got
hold of it. In any case, he didn’t
think he'd be prosecuted.
Chic Looking Not Expensive
Perfect grooming—of her clothes
as well as herself—always is the
answer for the chic and smart look
ing woman, regardless of her un
limited or limited budget
A clean, carefully pressed $5 dress
can do much more for any woman
than a slightly wrinkled, mildly
dingy $50 dress. A $25 hat does
nothing for even a glamour girl’s
face if the veiling on it is wilted or
the ribbon band a bit bedraggled.
There are no two ways about it—
clothes demand attention, and if yon
make careful inquiries and get hon
est answers you’ll find that every
truly chic woman with low or mod
erate budget spends at least one eve
ning a week keeping her wardrobe
in order. *
You’ll discover that she keeps a
bottle of good cleaning fluid handy
and that she uses it on her hats as
well as her dress or blouse in order
to remove small spots or stains. She
attends to buttons when they become
loose instead of waiting for them to
fall off. She is a firm believer in
the stitch-in-time story. And she
has a good clothes brush and a hat
brush and a suede brush and she
uses them every day.
THE COMEBACK
On being introduced to a stranger
on the Continent, the first question
Scottie put to him was:
“Whaur do ye cam free?”
“The greatest country on earth.”
“Pit it there,” said Scottie, extend
ing his hand; “but I’m awfu’ sorry
to see ye’ve lost your accent.”

'Buck-Pasting* It Natural
For Persons of All Ages
When a woman realizes that her
next birthday will take her out <4
the: youthful twenties, and make her
SO years old, she becomes littery
and fearful of entering this new dec
ade. Vaguely, she worries lest she
may have missed something impor
tant in life. She hungers for ro
mance, fearing that old age may
soon be upon her, when she errone
ously believes romance cannot exist
Women are dangerous and in danger
at this time, for they subconscious
ly flirt with the idea of more ro
mance. If their husbands aren't
feeding them a heavy romantic diet
of compliments about their youth
and beauty, they may even entertain
the thoughts of some secret flirta
tions.
There is, moreover, an old saying
that it takes a thief to catch a thief.
This means, in substance, that guilty
people tend to believe others are
guilty. When a person begins to ac
cuse others falsely and to excess,
we often And such behavior is an
evidence Of "projection,” or of
blaming the other party for our own
faults.
When a child awkwardly strikes
his shin against a chair, he doesn’t
blame himself, but grows angry at
the chair, maybe giving it an addi
tional kick for retaliation. Even
adult men will throw a hammer on
the floor when they have pounded
their thumb with it. In the army
when the captain reprimands the
lieutenant, the latter scolds the cor
poral, who then bawls out the pri
vate, who finally kicks the mufo
This buck-passing is called "pro
jection,” meaning the act of blam
ing another person for our own sins
or faults.
