LimE PATTY SQUIRES, 56 dayt old, is held by her nurse,
' Beatrice Rhule, after having been lifted for a moment from the
incubator in the nunery at Mercy hospital which has been her
, home since her birth.
Born prematurely by three and a half months and weighing
only two pounds and two ounces, very little hope was held for
her survival, not only by the attending surgeon, Doctor E. E.
Lindell, who stated that it would be somewhat of a medical
miracle if. she should live; but also by Mrs. Rhule, who has
been nursing babies for 34 years. Sister Austin, hospital Superior,
thought otherwise, however. "She squirms so, she must have
a lot of vitality," she pointed out.
The going was pretty rugged, however. Shortly she lost weight
until she only weighed one pound ten ounces; but rallying
(through pure grit, her nurse claims, bless her heart) she now
strips at a full three pounds six ounces. Faithfully breast fed,
she is getting sturdier each day. Care and attention (she has
received the best of both) is showing dividends.
Patty is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Squires, of 300
Booth street.

Ruling Hits Union
In Coos Dispute
CIO maritime unions involved
last April in a dispute at Coos
Bay over the lumber freighter
Kolando have been found guilty
of unfair labor practices by the
National Labor Relations board.
NLRB Representative Robert J.
Weiner said .yesterday ,the. board
upheld' an examiner's findings.
The CIO Cooks, Stewarts and
Engine Room Workers' unions
were charged with illegal coer
cion of employes of the Irwin
Lyons Lumber company. The CIO
unions had claimed jurisdiction
over AFL-held jobs aboard the
company's freighter.
The dispute spread to allied
lumbering and logging operations
oi the company ana involved
other CIO unions in picketing. It
also resulted in a beating of sev
eral mill employees.
The NLRB dismissed a charge
that CIO longshoremen were res
ponsible for beating two work
ers. It held that the beating was
away from the picket lines and
there was no evidence the union
officers provoked any attack. The
board also turned down the com
pany charge of a secondary boy
cott. This stemmed from picket
ing of the Coos Bay Boom com
pany operations. The board ruled
that although the boom operation
and the lumber company were
seDarate corporations, the own
ership was identical.

Speech At U. Hi
Prtsidtnt Cites GocnV
Of "Grtattr Happiness,
Longer Lift" For Ptopfo
(ff) President Truman today
pledged United States cooperation
to help "create an abundance of
food for all countries."
He called this "a major coopera
tive endeavor toward our com
mon objective of a stable and
peaceful world."
In a speech for the annual
meeting of the food and agricul
ture organization of the United
Nations, the president declared:
"If by working together in thli
organization, we can create an
abundance of food for all coun
tries, we shall bring better health,
longer lives, and greater happi
ness to mankind everywhere.''
Mr. Truman said the "point
four" program he presented in hia
inaugural address last January
could be utilized to increase pro
duction of foods in under
developed areas.
"Our experience, our knowl
edge, our technical experts are
all available to you, and I hope
that you will continue to call
upon them as needed."
Bank Proposal Ignored
The president made no refer
ence to a proposal to set up a
world food bank, or . clearing
house, as a means of getting sur
pluses from one area into another
area where food is scarce. .
The proposed world food bank
would have a revolving fund of
$1,000,000,000, most of It prob
ably from the United States.

ready to share heavily In the
