A score of women, representing I before noon. units of the servicemen’s wives Sixty of the wives had children
and children’s association, met the chief of staff outside the of fice of Chairman May (D-Ky.) as he arrived to explain demobliza tion policy to the house military committee.
Cornered Him They told him bluntly they wanted to talk to him and followed him into May’s small office in the house office building.
Backed into a corner against a window*, the five-star general tried for a few' minutes to answer assorted questions fired at him simultaneously by almost all of the women.
May finally insisted that one of them do the talking and Mrs. Dorothy Galomb. Wilkinsburg, Pa., secretary of the group, ufas designated spokesman.
She said flatly that mothers whose husbands are in service are dissatisfied with demobilization procedure and claimed that one out of every three marriages is ending in divorce, with service families involved in most of them.
Can’t Stand Isolation Declaring that mothers, while trusting their husbands, look with alarm at pictures of fraternization of servicemen overseas, she asked Eisenhower:
‘‘How do you think we mothers feel? Marriage wont stand this isolation.”
Eisenhower, when he got a chance to get in a few words, told the women there are about 700,000 fathers in the army and everything is being done to get them out in an orderly manner as rapidly as possible.
“If I drop them out today” re-
Edless of their eligibility for re-se.” he said, “there will be no army.”
Eisenhower said replacements are being obtained and trained as rapidly as possible. He promised the delegation he would personally handle any formal program they submitted.

Charges of robbery with firearms have been filed and warrants issued for Audrey Booker, whose picture was identified as that of being the man who robbed M. and M. Grocery in Ada several days ago. Booker has been caught and is being held in Carthage, Mo., according to information received by local authorities.
Booker is being held in the county jail at Carthage after being shot through one knee while attempting to rob a store in Carthage.
Caught Jan. 14
He was caught Monday, Jan. 14, or one week ago, but authorities at Carthage could not connect him with jobs he is believed to have pulled in Oklahoma as he gave his name as Jack Mason to Missouri authorities.
County Attorney Vol Crawford said that Pontotoc county would try to get Booker back in this county to face the charges that have been filed against him.
Other Places Want Him
He is suspected of having pulled armed robbery jobs in three Oklahoma towns before giving slate officers the slip and moving into Missouri.
On several occasions, officers shot at Booker and on each instance he returned their fire, but no one was hit by the flying bullets until he stopped an officer’s bullet at Carthage.
Authorities at Carthage who learned the fellow was Audrey Booker, alias Jack Mason, cooperated with railroad authorities m learning that the man in their possession was the same man wanted by several groups of Oklahoma officers.
He was almost captured at Eufaula by the sheriff of that county, hi* automobile and

Some cafe operators said Tuesday that their supply of butter would not last through Tuesday, making it necessary to substitute items on their menues.
OPA regulations state that a cafe owner may limit a customer to one pat of butter per meal or eliminate it entirely. If butter is dropped from the menu, a cafe owner must serve with each meal a substitute such as jam, jelly, marmalade, peanut butter or other similar items.
