Mrs. Maxine Moss, 24, also will get her first outing since she was stricken July 390-mile trip from Percy Jones Army Hospital here to the home of her baby's grandparents in Hillsboro, 111. The Army has promised her hus- band, Pfc. William E. Moss a fur- lough so he can take her home. He is a cook at nearby Fort Custer. Moss was stationed at Camp McCoy, Wis., when his wife be- came ill. She spent six weeks in an iron lung in a La Crosse, Wis., hospital most of the time deliri- ous, and said she didn't remember her baby's birth Aug. 13. Moss' parents took the infant to Hills- boro to care for him. When she was able to leave the lung, Mrs. Moss was trans- ferred to the Percy Jones Hospital and her husband was transferred to Fort Custer. The Mosses' four-year-old girl al- so is staying with the grandparents in Hillsboro. bedroom and kitchen is the main room of a small four-room annex behind a large duplex. One room is closed off now, because the range can heat only three rooms comfortably. In the next room are two beds, a double and single, in which the other four youngsters sleep. The third room contains the family's sink, mirror, washing machine and ice box. The oldest girl, age 10, has al- ready received Goodfellows help. See the new coat hanging on the door in the background. This girl is proud of her bright red coat; it will keep Her warm on her way to school. But the other five children re- main to be fitted with the clothes they need. When Goodfellows worlj- ers asked what items her children need, the mother replied: "The baby could use some boot- ies; she'hasn't any now. She has enough diapers, but does need un- dershirts. And Timmy needs she concluded. Apparently feeling that she had asked for enough, the mother assured the Goodfel- lows workers that she would be very grateful if the baby and Timmy could receive those items. One worker, looking at the three- year-old playing on the roll-away, asked, "Does she have any She hadn't. She and her five-year- old sister stay indoors during the winter. The older sister has no coat. None of the children has overshoes. Reliable sources report this fam- ily to be hardworking and whole- some. The young father works hard and steady. They manage their fi- nances carefully, making every cent count. They have no luxuries radio, sewing machine, pic- tures on the walls, magazines to read. The mother keeps her children spic and span. They're blue-eyed, blond youngsters, all well-behaved. The father manages to pay the rent, buy food and fuel. He can keep his children healthy so long as they stay indoors. Except for medical care, this family cannot get relief because the father is' just able to provide the rent, fuel and food. There will be no Christmas in this home without Goodfellows help.

That set the clock and calendar back to Monday. The ship is due at Pearl Harbor at 9 a.m. (2 p.m. EST) Thursday. Top-level discussions continued yesterday but there was no an- nouncement or report to indicate their trend. Eisenhower, returning from Korea, and his, advisers met first as a unit, then broke up into smaller groups. The President-elect and members of his "brain trust" took time out from weighty world problems to do some skeet-shooting on the Helena's fantail. Eisenhower, Gen. Lucius Clay and George M. Humphrey whom A. Eisenhower has designated as secretary of the Treasury, shared top honors. They shot for 30 min- utes and did not miss once. When the Helena reaches Pearl Harbor at the end of its mile trip from Guam, the group will confer for possibly three more days with military leaders and advisers now gathered there. Then the general will fly back to his headquarters at the Hotel Com- modore in New York City. Farm Bureau May Split on Price Support President Kline Warns Against Inflationary Trend SEATTLE (a The president of the American Farm Bureau Fed- erations today described what be termed the get-it-from-the-govern- ment-for-nothing philosophy as "an insidious fallacy." Allan B. Kline criticized the the- ory in the presidential message prepared for the annual convention of the big farm organization. Differences appeared to be brew- ing over what stand the federation should take on the issue of gov- ernment support of farm prices. The stand taken by the organi- zation at last year's Chicago con- vention was that "farm price sup- ports are an appropriate and nec- essary protection against unreason- able price declines. It is not, how- ever, the responsibility the gov- ernment to guarantee profitable prices to any economic group." Cites Dangers Kline, an Iowa farmer, told the convention today: "The philosophy that the citizen can get something for nothing by getting it from the central gov- ernment aids and abets inflation." He called inflation, already long continued, a "dangerous path." He warned also against price- fixing and regimentation, "always sold to the farmers as an advan- tage." He described them as "real threats to rising standards of living in agriculture. "We need to look very critically indeed at these propositions. Whenever a politician says to the farmer: 'Vote for me and I will give you and fails to note there are costs involved, he is practicing a dangerous kind of political'trickery." The president's message was the highlight of the second day's pro- gram of the convention, which has drawn close to delegates from 47 states and Puerto Rico. Eye Rhode Island Rhode Island may make it the 48th in 1953, Secretary-Treasurer Roger Fleming advised the conven- tion in his annual report. "When that day he said, "this organization will add to its present distinction of being the largest farm organization in the world farm families) the additional laurel of being the first completely nation-wide organiza- tion of farmers."

Weary But Relieved The guards, weary but obviously emerged unharmed from the barricaded prison. They re- fused to talk about their experi- ences. Abram said they were well treated and their captors gave them: food and coffee. Mechem arid Abram described the-attempted break as "a. spon- taneous proposition" led by Rob- ert Eads, 22-year-old holdup man from St. Louis. "The boys suddenly had a bright idea and took said the gov- ernor. One convict, Leopold Mares, suffered minor wounds. Three shot- gun pellets hit his leg soon after the insurrection started.
