In the lengthy complaint filed by attorney general j. Howard Mcgrath the giant companies were charged with operating an International car Tel for the purpose of con trolling Oil prices both in the . the Case never came to trial owing to a Long drawn out Battle Over preliminary issues principally evidence demanded by the govern ment.

Adams a plan of life i believe we All should have a plan of life from which we can formulate a personal philosophy by which we can happily live. In a Little Book Long out of print i believe which contains Brief bits from writings of Robert Louis Steven son entitled r. L. S., is a favorite of mine and i give it to you. Said Steven son to be honest to be kind to earn a Little and to spend a Little less to make upon the whole a family happier for his presence to renounce when that shall be necessary and not to be embittered to keep a few friends but these without capitulation above All on the same grim conditions to keep friends with himself is a task for All that a Man has of fortitude and to live healthily and happily is a very simple thing. It demands selflessness consideration for others and a desire for the happiness of others As Welt As for ourselves. We All feel better after we have encouraged someone else. Living to oneself and not sharing our thrills and Lave of the Many things in life with others is bound to make any of us lonely and unhappy. A plan of life should include a love of books nature and other human beings. We should learn to appraise human values and to set our thrills and love of the Many things in life with others the mind and the heart. We cannot be whole human beings and not be concerned about the happiness of others and the things that add warmth and Luster to each one of our Days. Quotes America secret weapon demo cratic colleagues of senator William Proxmire d., Justice authorities Are saying Brownell ordered this Oil suit to be settled by negotiation instead of by trial and Hansen drafted the plan for doing that.

Some attorneys of the anti Trust division who have been working on this Case Are scribed As far from Happy about the backstage plan to Settle it out of court.

What a Beautiful voice he has for a full in Moscow during the 40th anniversary of he bolshevik revolution great Mil voiced loud speakers in the Square outside our room boomed Only martial airs and vigor Ous polkas. The Only Ameri can music selected during that period was a Medley from that smash Broadway hit Rose the dining room at the Bris Tol is lighted at night like the Yard of a concentration Camp but somehow retains its Calm Ness.

It is a six hour trip with an hour on. The ground at Vilna which once belonged to Poland. The runway at. Moscow had been a Sheet of ice at Vilna it was covered with an Inch or two of Snow and there was a bit of an in easy skid when the Pilot first touched his brakes Ter touchdown. But it was a comfortable flight much of it at altitudes Between 500 and 1000 feet. Rus Sian pilots believe in flying under rather than Over the weather. An hour or two out of Moscow a strapping Stew Ardess served lunch a thick caviar Sandwich a Salami Sandwich a package of Cook ies and a Glass of very Strong Tea. There were also magazines to read including the russian Type life or featuring a painting of the Lynching of two negroes by a horde of Kun flux klansmen one carry ing an american Flag. The Man seated ahead of us read from Joseph Conrad in polish All the Way. At Vilna Airport the Ameri cans startled the ground Crew people by staging a snowball Battle. Once inside the hand some terminal we were told that Aeroflot the russian air line on which we were travel ing had free lunch waiting for us. The dining room was All but deserted and a Young waiter was the picture of mingled dismay and amuse ment when we told him we did t want All the luncheon even though it was free.

The danger of this alcohol is Well known yet the problem still remains particularly among per sons in military service and those with economic hardship. Some persons have died after drinking us. Utah As Little As three Teaspoons of 40% Methyl alcohol whereas others have i i n k much As a pint and have lived to Tell the tale. After drinking this alcohol it can take one 10 two Days before the symptoms of the poisoning begin. The part of he body affected most is the eyes. Dimness of vision in a patient after a drinking bout suggests Wood alcohol ingestion. The person May complain of brightness vision m. C. A. Dean dancing spots before his eyes or a Snow storm like picture. Poisoning from Methyl alcohol can result after prolonged Contact with the skin or through inhalation. These methods of poisoning Are seen most often in Indus trial situations. Following visual disturbances the victim of Wood alcohol poisoning will frequently develop vomiting abdominal pain delirium convulsions and then coma. The blurred vision May precede blindness and then frequently death.
