William Gallagher sent her son a package of fish hooks for Christmas Wrapped carefully in wax paper the three fish hooks were slipped in her weekly letter addressed to Cpl James G Gallagher POW Camp 3 Chinese Committee for World Peace Peking China Jimmy used to fish off one of the piers at Coney Island Mrs Gallagher explained He wrote that they could fish in the river over there now but lie needed fish hooks This will be the second Christ mas her 21yearold son has spent in a prisoner of war camp in North Korea T w o years ago the six other Gallagher children anil all the nearby relatives s e n I a 47 pound box complete with a dec orated tree to Korea No Packages But he was taken prisoner that year and we never heard whal happened to the box his mother said They tell us not to send packages now but maybe hell get the fish hooks in the letter In a cardboard box in their five room apartment in Brooklyn Mrs Gallagher has kept the handful of messages that have come from Jimmy including cards he care fully made and colored to send for Mothers Day Easier ami Christ mas The last letter was written in July There Isnt much ncwH he wrote We built a diving board on the river bank and can go fish inw now and we still have enough things to read May Be Censored He never complains but maybe they censor the letters Mrs Gallagher said and then laughed and added Jimmys writing is so terrible I dont see how the cdn sors could make it out Only 1 when he enlisted in the Army Jimmy hadnt decided what career hed pick for after he spent several months ns a prisoner Now he writes that hed like to start a butcher shop with his brotherinlaw his mother said 1 guess they dont get much meat over there so thats where he got the idea Calls Self Lucky She worries between letters which come usually about three months apart but considers her self one of the lucky ones since Jimmy is still alive Ive had people call me and ask me to sign petitions to end the war or exchange the Chinese prisoners for our boys but 1 wouldnt do anything like that the youthful 44yearoldmother said As much as 1 Jove Jimmy I have the other children to think of I want to do what the country thinks is best 1 try to be

INTERVIEWEDMaj John 30 son of Presidentelect Dwight Eisenhower talks about his fathers victory with war correspondents in Korea where he is serving W Germany in Big Gain Economically By WELLINGTON LONG BONN Germany UP West Germany is enjoying a state of unprecedented financial health In one year she has turned from the biggest debtor nation in the Euro pean payments union to its largest creditor Her gold and dollar reserves have increased 33 per cent in the past 12 months in spile of an ad verse trade balance with the dollar area West Germany has increased her exporls lo all areas by 250 per cent during he pnsl 3to years and will show an overall foreign trade surplus this year for the first lime since World War II Ask More Aid fn spite of all these gains Mu tual Security Administration offi cials in Bonn have asked Wash ington to give West Germany fur ther direct dollars aid for the 1952 53 fiscal year They arc not yet convinced West Germanys eco nomic recovery has reached a point where it can carry on without help The startling rise in West Ger manys gold and dollars balances has come primarily from Iwo sources 1 The United Stales troops sla tioned in West Germany 2 West Germanys trade with the EPU European Payments Union nations and the rcsullanl favorable balance Troops Spend Most The six divisions of US troops in Wesl Germany logelher with their supporting units are the countrys largest dollar earners They spend an average of more than million a month in West Germany That is an amount al mosl equal each year to the serv ice on West Germanys

Zsa Not Beauties By CHARLES DENTON HOLLYWOOD UP Portrait painter Peter Fairchitd who has iiit filmlands most prominent Faces on canvas said Thursday Hint Marilyn Monroe isnt a beauty in any sense of Ihc word He doesnt think much of Zsa Zsa Gabor cither Everyone is talking about her he said but to me her beauty is animation noth ing As a matter of fact Fairchild doesnt have many compliments for any of todays crop of filmland beauties They just dont compare with the oldsters he said Some Exceptions But he grants there are excep tions to this Lana Turner Susan Hayward Ava Gard ner and Elizabeth Taylor He also thinks Katharine Hepburn and Joan Crawford have the rare kind of beauty that hits a painter where he lives But the most beautiful woman who ever graced the screen was Greta Garbo according to Fair child There was a woman who could take a man away from any of the supposed beauties of today he claims Fairchild allowed hat painting the stars though lucrative is a very tough business You just dont know whether to paint them as they look or as the public sees them he explained Then too their studies may have objections to a painting and I get limitless suggestions from the per sonalities themselves Hive Some Idtas The younger ones always want to look more mature and the more mature ones have pretty definite ideas about how they should look On top of that he said a painter must be everything from a plastic surgeon to a hair dresser with his brush Theyll say Dont you think my bosom should be raised a little or Dont you think I should look a little slimmer So you do it the way they want all theyre paying for it he said Mickey Rooney wanted his por trait lo have an angelic look Fairchild recalled Church to Hear Missionary to Belgian Congo NORA SPRINGS The Rev
