Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 4, 1952, Cedar Rapids, Iowa \ the CEDAR RAPIDS GAZETTE: Toe*, Not. 4, 1951 FOTO Facts By John Reynolds— If someone asked you “How many times a week, or month does your wire go downtown to shop?” your answer would be based on how closely you’ve been watching the monthly bills. And you’d probably be wrong, on any guess. If there were aby statistics on the subject, you’d be surprised to find out just how efficient is that wife of yours. The number of downtown shopping trips made by average wives with average families will vary as much as their likes and dislikes, in all probability. If you’ve taken the pains to notice, your wife follows the ads doors of his store on their shopping tours. Nothing but illness, he said, kept those three at home. He didn’t elaborate on how much they bought—or on how much they brought back 1 0 0 0 Speaking of wives and their shopping, it’s well to note a statistic or two from Kay Storm’s Feature Folio. Miss Storm says that wives Man Finds After 24 Years He Didnt Commit Slaying closely; makes downtown shopping trips count when she does go on such excursions. If you’ve been married for any length of time you’ll also have learned: I. That not leaving her the ear won't stop her from shopping— if she’s got a bargain spotted and is determined to SO. 2. She shops in the same afternoon that she goes to club or circle. * Here, again, she’s being efficient. If she has children, she’s saved getting a baby sitter on two different days, one for shopping and one for circle. And she gives you the impression that she won’t spend much shopping because she won’t have the time to do so. This impression, however, can be wrong as drouth. 3. If she can work her shopping excursion so that she can interrupt it with lunch—downtown, by herself or with a friend—she invariably comes home a re- ougilt to do a little "necking” with their husbands before buying their shirts. Only sue man in 50, says Miss Storm, xnows his correct collar size. He may think he knows it, but the rule still holds good. Before you wives buy those Christmas shirts for the Men in Your Houses, check neck sizes! Ninety percent of the shirts’ appearance depends on the fit of the collar. Sleeve size is important, too. It's Quite correct when the shirt sleeve shows one-half inch below the coat sleeve. A wife's best assurance for achieving this correctness, is to haul out the measuring tape and do a little calculating—at arm's length. Measure it this way: Have your husband stand with arm raised, and at a right angle at the elbow. Run your tape measure from the center of the shirt yoke in the back and out along the outer arm to the wrist bone. It should come out something like 32, 33 or 34—unless he's the ape you say he is. NEW YORK (UP) — Louis Roberts, 50, who thought himself a murderer tor 24 years, knew differently Tuesday. He learned the "murder” he committed in 1928 actually had never taken place. Authorities informed him that a Brooklyn policeman whom he thought he had slain in a holdup recovered from his wounds and is still alive. Roberts recently walked into the police station at Brookhaven, N.Y., a Long Island suburb of New York City, and told officers he wanted to confess a murder. He wanted relief from a guilty conscience. Now a house painter at Center Moriches, N.Y., Roberts said he took part in a $600 holdup of a butcher shop in Brooklyn Jn 1928. As he and his partner fled, he said, they met a policeman and in the exchange of gunfire the officer was shot. Louis G. Andreozzi, assistant district attorney in Brooklyn, checked Roberts’ story and gave him the good news. Patrolman John Wilson, wounded in the 1928 holdup, did note die. He recovered, was promoted to sergeant, and has since retired. Andreozzi said Roberts' part Tn the holdup would be ignored, since the statute of limitations protects him from prosecution. Reds Beaten Back; Yanks Watch Vote SEOUL (UP) — Hundreds of screaming Reds stormed Heartbreak and Sniper Ridges Tuesday in a futile attempt to dislodge U.N. forces. The allies beat off the twin battalion-sized assaults on the eastern and central fronts with heavy Red losses. Then a lull setlfed over the 155-mile Korean battle line. American soldiers huddled around radios in bunkers and command posts for the latest news of the presidential election. It was the quietest day along most of the front in almost a month. Extended to East. Troops Sent To Combat Forest Fires freshed woman despite her trudging from shop to shop. It’s interesting to remember the report of a man who had spent 36 years in one large Cedar Rapids dry goods store—a report on women and the frequency of their downtown shopping. In all his years in the store, this man said he knew of only three women he could depend on seeing every single day of every week... only three women out of the thousands, month in and month out, who went through the Denationalization Outlined by Queen LONDON (UP)—Queen Elizabeth II opened her first session of parliament Tuesday with the announcement Britain will turn back toward capitalism in 1953 by denationalizing the steel and trucking industries. The 26-year-old queen, resplendent in a robe once worn by Queen Victoria, also told assembled peers of the realm, diplomats and members of commons she earnestly prays for an early armistice in Korea. But until a truce is concluded, she said, her forces will continue to fight in Korea as clear proof of Britain’s attachment to the ideals of the U. N. She promised Britain would follow a foreign policy based on the “closest and most friendly” relations with the U. S. The queen outlined the Conservative government program for 1952-53 in a speech written for her by Prime Minister Churchill’s cabinet. It was the I traditional speech from the throne which opens each new session of parliament. in illinois BENTON, IU. (AP)—Smouldering fires in timbered river bottoms flared into life in a 30-mile wind Monday and destroyed or damaged homes in at least five southern Illinois communities. A detachment of IOO soldiers with trucks and firefighting equipment was sent to the Benton area to help overmatched state forest rangers. The Illinois wing of the Civil Air Patrol already using 25 planes and mobile ground radio units to direct firefighters, called out four more planes Tuesday. Smoke, Umiting visibility to IOO feet or less, blanketed the area and hindered efforts to find the heads of the fires, estimated to number 45 to 50 within a 25-mile radius of Benton. Backfiring by farmers in an effort to save their farmsteads added to the difficulties. CAP Lt Bob Zilius of Cicero said homes were reported destroyed or damaged in Herrin, Zeigler, Royalton, Christopher and West Frankfort He said there are fires in 14 counties, but the most critical area, about 400,-000 acres, lies in Jefferson and Hamilton counties and about 100,000 acres of this has been burned over. There were no reports of lives lost. Zilius said it may take two to four days, in favorable weather to bring the fires under control. 0 0 0 Third army headquarters at Atlanta Monday ordered a battalion of soldiers from Fort Bragg, N.

The Communists extended their battle for more real estate to eastern Korea for the first time in recent weeks with a 700-man predawn attack against Heartbreak Ridge. North Koreans hit Heartbreak in waves under cover of a 5,000-round artillery and mortar barrage. Allied troops held fast and killed or wounded at least IOO Communists in four hours.

On the central front, Chinese Communists 700 strong swarmed out of deep caves connected by a maze of tunnels at me foot of Sniper Ridge and charged screaming up the slopes.

Proposed constitutional amendments, initiative propositions and referenda were on the ballots in 85 states.

The department’s census bureau said the number of employed persons declined 308,000 from September to October and the number of unemployed declined 154,-000.

The report said farm employment was 7,274,000, a decline of 394,000 from last year, and non-farm employment was 54,588,000, up 420,000 from a year ago.

Wintermantel, lays most of this gain, however, is not at the expense of other types of toys. Wintermantel, executive vice-president of Junior Toy Corporation of Hammond, Ind. f a division of American Machine and Foundry Corporation, explained that plastic toy designers have created new kinds of toys and thus actually created new business.
