The old Hall house is on Atlantic Street, which as everyone who has ever been to Cranberry knows is THE street. Every three years Doctor Hall has the house repainted. It shone, white and gracious, in its setting of ancient, tended trees, and velvet green lawn. It was June, the roses were out, and the garden, which was the doctor's love and relaxation, was flowering into delicate, sturdy beauty, delphinium, fox glove, sriasta daisy and verbena, lupine and sweet William . . . Cranberry is picturesque. Long wharfs on the Bay. Mud flats shining with oily rainbow colors •at low tide, blue water, blue sky, nets drying and the smell of fish. Cottages, enveloped in rambler roses in due season. Cranberry is prosperous. The fisheries are still second only to Gloucester, though the Navy has claimed a good part of the fishing fleet; the woolen and stocking mills are on Army time now, and the shoe factories hum with activity. In addition, there's a new cartridge clip plant and a new munitions arsenal that has added many defense workers to Cranberry's 30,000 New Englanders born and bred. Once upon a time, Cranberry struck a telling blow for liberty. In a different way, she is "doing so again. Cranberry is a typical American town, progressive and proud, carrying her share of the burden toward Victory. A year ago Nancy Hall was not ' impressed. * * * J^"ANCY was 24. She had acquired a veneer of sophistication from the two years she had traveled on the Continent—a continent now ravaged and bloodstained—with her mother's wid- childless sister, Martha 'Roberts. The first two years that she had been out of school. Martha was rich, erratic, generous, and grasping. She was also restless. When she learned jthat Nancy was through with the Seminary and completely uninterested in going on to college or on to a career, she was delighted. She had never forgiven her sister for marrying David Hall. . . . "Goes to Cranberry for the summer, falls in- love with a boy just out of medical school and buries herself for the rest of her life," she would say scornfully. By FAITH BALDWIN COPYRIGHT; 1943. NEA SERVICE. INC. There had been cruises . . . marvelous cruises, dancing under the stars, attentive young men and pretty clothes. "She could have had anyone . . . she was the prettiest thing I ever saw, men were mad about her . , ," No, she had not forgiven Nancy's mother for her marriage nor for Toctor Hall's insistence that the Halls were not objects of charity. When Martha married, a man with a thick neck and a thicker bank book she had relented toward Millicent, a little. It pleased her to play Lady Bountiful. But David Hall would have noije of it, so she was cheated of a small, mean triumph. But latterly she had an ally in Nancy. When it was proposed that Nancy become her aunt's unpaid—but fed and clothed —companion, Doctor Hall had been, very much against it. Jn the end his wife, his wife's sister and his younger daughter had defeated him. They had wept, shouted, argued and pled him down. Nancy had been vastly entertained by the world her aunt had revealed to her. When international circumstances beyond Aunt Martha's impatient control had turned Europe from a playground to a battlefield, there had been cruises to the Caribbean, to South America marvelous cruises, dancing under the stars, attentive young men and pretty clothes. I earned them, thought Nancy, b«r ey«s somber. Fetch me this, fetch me that, oy neck, bring me my hand bgffg- turn off the radio, turn on the radio—that sort of thing. But she had earned it willingly enough, she was in essence fair- minded, she expected to pay for all she received. And then when even the cruises had to come to an end, Aunt Martha, comptetely blind to the war and the changes that had come into other people's lives, trailed restlessly across her own country from one fashionable resort to another. Hot Springs to Del Monte and back Nancy had danced attendance. Now, Nancy was home again. Some foolish business about priorities in travel, and all but a few hotels being taken over by the Army. And, as if that weren't bad enough, Aunt Martha had seen fit to fall in love 'with the golf pro at that place where they stayed last summer. She had become immense, with the face of an obese parrot, and she was 15 years his senior. But she had married him. And she didn't want an attractive young girl around. * * * TVANCY looked off down the street and there came Emily walking along with her light, swinging step, her dark head high and a look of soundless whistling about her. "Hi," said Nancy, without enthusiasm. Her sister—the elder by two years—turned irf at the walk, sat down on the step beside heft- swept off her severe hat and com*-' mented, "Golly, it's a grand evening." "You would think so," said Nancy. She added, "That uniform —I can't get used to it—" "You'll have to," said Emily cheerfully. "You'll see it often enough." "It should be unbecon said Nancy, "but on yoy, jt* i j«r She regarded her sister thoughtfully. "Y,gj^g| really very good- remarked dispas- Tetter-looking than I am," ?Iifpp'id, with faint aston- ishmeny "character and all that sort of thing. But of course you don't make the most of yourself." "Thanks, dear," said Emily and put her arm around her sister's shoulder. She said, "You're a brat Aunt Martha hasn't improved you. But it's marvelous to have you home just the same." "Sez you," said Nancy gloomily. "Look, Emily, what am I supposed to do ... in Cranberry?" "You might work," Emily suggested. "It has been clone." "At what?" demanded Nancy with little regard for syntax. "I'm not a stenographer — and an assembly line doesn't hold the fascination for me that it seems to for some." "There's volunteer work . . ." began her sister. "I don't knit and I'd go crazy folding bandages all clay. Also, I'm not the air-raid warden type," retorted Nancy. "You could help Dad," said her sister. "How, for heaven's sake?" "In the office. You could soothe patients, you could get out hi3 bills." "Fat lot of good that would do," said Nancy, "even if I could add ... no one ever pays them! As for patients" — she shuddered — "you're the only Florence Nightingale in the family, darling." She slid a sidelong glance at the older girl, in the trim gray uniform. Emily's hair was thick and dark and waved back from a broad fine forehead. Her eyes were the clear amber of Nancy's own, unusual with the dark hair, her skin was fine, soft and creamy white. Her mouth was darkly, naturally red. She' was slightly taller than Nancy, her shoulders broader but her waist and hips as slim. Nancy demanded, presently, ,, "What am I expected to do in this one-horse town?" "Amuse yourself," answered Emily promptly, "and mother." Her face clouded. "I have so little time for her," she exclaimed gently. "She's so terribly happy to have you at home, Nancy."

It is doubly important (his fall to control livestock parasites, if most efficient use is lo be made of limited feed supplies, s-:iys Oliver L. Adams, county agent. Lice on cattle, bols. and round worms of Xvork stock, stomach worms and nodular worms in sheep, and round worms in swine are known tc take the heaviest loll each year. The arsenical dip used tor ticks is suggested for the control of lice on cattle. Coal-tar cresolo dips and nicotine dips also may be used. We have a supply of arsenical dip oil hand for charging community dipping vats. The control of bot and round j worms in work 1 slock saves feed and loss of lime oul of harness because of colic. These parasites arc controlled by treatment of the stock' with carbon disulfide in December. The mixture of one part phono- thiaxint- and 12 parts salt used by flock owners this last summer for controlling stomach worms and nodiiUu- worms in sheep should be continued through the winter.

Prevention by sanitation is the best method of combating round worms in hogs. Plans iVade now for farrowing winter and sprin;; litters in clean quarters, and for raising the litters on ground that has not been used for hogs for one year, will give good returns in feed saved. A saving of feed snn also be made by individually treating feeder pigs that show symptoms of round worms. The treatment used may either be worm capsules, or a mixture of one ounce of oil of chonopodium to 15 ounces of castor oil. The dosage for n pig hist weaned is one tablespoon, or half ounce, of this mixture: for " pig weighing 50 to 75 pounds, the dosage is two tablespoons, or one ounce, the agcnl said. parl of Clark."

Here is just one of the many new uses that have been developed for pulpwood products— another reason why pulpwood has j oined rubber* and tin on the scarcity list. But of pulpwood we have an ample supply—in the woods. The only problem is to get it cut. This mill, like almost every other pulpmill in the country, is short of wood. We need all' we can get.

Ho .said the $000.000.000 cost of subsidies in 1!)-13 was "about equal to the cost to us of waging this war for three days" and he wa.s sure Congress and the people feel this expenditure 1 is a moderate sum to pay lor accomplishing thc objectives. Preferring to call them "war subsidies" instead r/f producer or consumer subsidies, the president said such aid is Iho same principle that has "proved KO effective" in the production of copper, lead, zinc and aluminum and which every nation at. war has utilized to hold down living costs. "Although this program cannot hold thc line without the enforcement of a firm price control and without an adequate tax and savings program lo absorb excess purchasing power," he asserted, "nevertheless it. is equally true that, the firmest price control and tin;' wisest' fiscal', policy cannot do Ihe job themselves without use oC price supports." The president, explaining his hold-lhe-linc order of lust April, recalled the .stabili/.ation act sought lo nail prices at the level of.'those existing Sept. ]n,• 1!)42, but he said by May IS, 19-13, the cost of living had gone up 11.2 per cent, three- fourths of the increase being caused by food price increases. Ninety nor cent of ihe living cost had been largely stabilized, he said, but JO per r.-er.i had been permitted to get oul of hand. "The 'easy' way out uf this situation," lie said, "would have been to let wages rise above the base date level in Ihe same degree thai the cost of living had risen. That is what some did urge. Thai would He said the $W)0,()()!.).000 t-pent so I have been .a .serious blunder. For far Ihis vc-ar was made up of $350,000,000 used by the CCC to support prices for 11 specific classes of fond items and one miscellaneous group, and $450,000,000 of Reconstruction Finance Corporation funds to reduce prices of meat and butter. In two food list and price exhibits attached to his message, the president drew Congress' atlcntion to the fact thai "production of only a fraction nf Iho commodities required -any outlay by the government." "In of th if the line had been relaxed on the wage front we may rest assured (hut, the resulting pressure of costs would have forced prices and the cost uf living up oni'c more, thus calling for still another rise of wages." "The •hukl-the-line' order was designed to undo the damage that had been done, and lei prevent any further damage," lie said.

China did not participate in the other declarations, dealing wilh the European war. They were: 1. President 1 Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill, and Premier Stalin promised that those German officers and men, and members of the Nazi party, who have been In their joint statement on Italy, Hull, Eden and Mololov declared thc three governments had been agreed from the "inception of the invasion of Italian territory" that, insofar as military operations permitted, their aclions would be based upon Ihe principles of de- slroying Fascist influence and giving Ihe Ilalian people a chance lo set up their own democralic insli- lutions. "In furtherance of this policy," thc three governments agreed thai Voters in Six States Draw Eyes of Nation By The Associated Press Voters perhaps most of them women — will mark wartime ballots in off-year elections in six stales tomorrow, and political leaders and forecasters will be watching the results for possible signs of 1944 swing. Observers agree many things can happen between now and next year's presidential contest that might have u decisive effect on voter thinking! but they will a alyze the returns minutely in at least four states just the same. They realize a temporary advantage gained by cither party may.be built up to withstand the jar of subsequent events on public sentiment. Chief national interest lies in the race 1'or lieutenant governor in New York, in which President Roosevelt and Gov. Thomas E. Dcwey are supporting opposing candidates; gubernatorial contests in New Je.-scy and Kentucky ana the mayoralty scrap in traditionally Republican Philadelphia. Mississippi will go through the formality of electing a slate of Democratic state officials, including a governor, who were winners in August primaries; Virginia will choose state legislators, and New York and Pennsylvania will fill one seat each in the National House of Representatives, left vacant by a death and resignation. In Michigan, there will be a mayoralty contest at Detroit, chief issue of which has been the recent' race riots. An unusually heavy vote has been predicted. All the old, lour slates will elect 115 stale senalors and 400 slate representatives. Because so many men of voting age are at Ihe fronl or have moved lo new war induslry locali- ses, women are expected lo pou a majorily of Ihe vote in many com- munilies. The tolal vote is almost certain to be light in view of sharply curtailed registrations and lack of live issues. There have been some official forecasts thai women may cast 55 per cent or better of the 1944 vote. Republicans, who gained nine seats in the senate and 45 in the house, and three governors —later made four by a death — afler the 1942 elections, make their most confident claim of victory in connection with the governorship race in New Jersey. They also feel fairly comfortable about the other stale conlests, with the Kentucky governorship their only admitted doubt, although state leaders are optimistic aboul Ihe latter. The usual pre-election confidence also issues from the democratic principals. Their best bet, they say, the following "should be put effect:' into Food Administration has lacMed two situalions requiring immediate action milk and bread — that the milk program has just been announced and thai a "program lo prevent an increase in the price of bread is now being developed." The president said that the United Stales has exceeded all World War One production figures in the food line by large margins and Unit control programs in this war have kept the rise in the cost of living since August, 1939, to not quite 26 per cent as compared with 53 per cent for the same period of the last confli.i. guilty of atrocities — cither directly or by consent — will be taken back lo Ihe scene of their crimes after the war and there tried according to Ihe laws of Ihe country concerned. 2. Britain, Russia and the United Slates . agreed on Allied policy toward Italy, based on a determination to wipe out Fascist influence and lo give Ihe Italian people "every opportunity to establish governmental and other institutions based upon democratic principles." 3. The throe also declared "Austria, first free country to fall victim to Hitlerite aggression, shall be liberated from German domination." The joint four-power declaration obviouslv_,.left Ihe way open for Russia to remain neutral as far as Japan is concerned, but provided a guarantee that neither Russia nor the Western Allies would sign a separate peace or take other separate action against their joint enemies. While recognizing the "nccessily of establishing at the earliest practicable dale u general international organization," Ihe four powers did not attempt to specify Ihe nature of thai organization beyond the well- known American policy of insisting upon equality of sovereignty of all peace-loving stales, with membership open to all such stales, large and small. Regulation of armaments afler the war was lefl lo such a lime as Ihe United Nalions "will confer with one another ... to bring about a practicable general agreement." In their declaration on Austria, Ihe three powers said they regarded the anschluss with Germany as null and void and considered themselves in no way bound by any changes in Austria since then. The future of the Balkans may be affected by the nexl clause: "They declare that Ihey wish lo sec reestablished a free and independent Austria and thereby to open liir.' way fo,- the Austrian people themselves as well as those neighboring states which will be faced with similar problems, to find that political and economic security which is the only basis for lasting peace." pien a warning, and an invila- tioij lo all Germany's salelliles: "Austria is reminded,, however, that she has a responsibility, which she cannot evade, for participation in the war at the side of Hitlerile Germany, and that in the final sel- llement account will inevitably betaken of her own conlnbuUun to is Kentucky. 1. It is necessary to include in a "more democralic" Ilalian govern- menl, representatives of those sections of Ihe Ilalian people. 2. Freedom to establish anti-Fas- cisl polilical groups shall accompany freedom of speech, religion, polilics, press and public meetings. 3. Suppression of all Fascisl- crealed institutions and organizations. 4. Removal of all Fascist and pro-Fascist elements from public institutions and organizations. 5. All polilical prisoners of Ihe Fascist regime shall be released and accorded full amnesty. 6. Democratic organs of local government shall be crated. 7. Fascist chiefs and army generals, known or suspecled to be war criminals, shall be arrested and handed over lo justice. The signers provided for joint consultation on these matters at the request of any one, with the understanding that "nothing in Ihis resolution is to operate against the right of the Ilalian people ultimately lo choose their own form of government." The Roosevelt-Churchill- Stalin statement on retribution for German atrocities said such German behavior was "no new thing" and that evidence had been received from many quarters of "atrocilies, massacres and cold-blooded execu- lions which are being perpetrated by Hitlerite forces in many of the countries they have overrun and from which they are being steadily expelled." "What is new," continued the joint statement, "is thai many of ihese territories are now being redeemed by the advancing armies of the liberating powers and that in their desperation, the recoiling Hitleriles and Huns are redoubling their ruthless cruelties. "This is now evidenced with particular clearness by monstrous crimes on Ihe territory of the Soviet Union which is being liberated from Hitleriles, and on French and Ilalian territory. "At the time of granting of any [ armistice to any government which may be set up in Germany, those German officers and men and members of Ihe Nazi parly who have been responsible for or have taken a consenting part in the above atrocities, massacres and executions will be sent back lo the countries in which their abominable deeds were done in order that they may be judged and punished according to the laws of these liberated countries and of the free governments which will be erected therein. "Lists will be compiled in all possible detail from all these countries, having regard especially to invaded parts of the Soviet Union, to Poland and Czechoslovakia, to Yugoslavia and Greece, including Crete and other islands, to Norway. Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Italy." The statement warned those not already guilty lo beware lest they join the doomed ranks.

Meanwhile American Flying Fortresses carried the air offensive into Southern France from Mediterranean bases for the second time in the war, bombing the important road and railway viaduct on the coastal route five miles southwest of Cannes. The Fortresses, unescorted to the French Riviera, scored at least four hits at both ends of the 500- foot span across the Siagne river and rendered it impassable. They also put out of commission a 40- car Irain al its edge. This is on the main route between Marseille and Genoa for German troops and supply movements. "The whole spot was drenched in a mass of smoke and debris. I doubt if the train escaped," said Tech. Sgt. J. U. Larbartaer, Brooklyn, a turrel gunner. The first raid on France from this ihealcr was in mid-August whor Iho Fortresses hit Marseille airfields. American 12lh Air Force planes made another strike outside the limits of this theater with an attack by two waves of Lightning fighters on Ihe German airfield at Tirana, Albanian capital, where parked aircraft and buildings were leit blazing. Warhawks set a small tanker afire west of Solla (Sulet) island off Split, Yugoslavia. In Italy American medium bombers allackcd Civilavecchia and Anzio, Ihe Iwo main harbors of the Rome area, where they caught numerous vessels, large and small, scoring direct hits on some, and raining 1,000-ton explosives on docks, tracks and oil storages. The Germans at both Tirana and Cannes were caught by surprise. Anti-aircraft fire was light at both places and only live or six Mes- serschmitls interfered on the way nome from Albania. Two of them were shot dqwn in a battle near Dubrovnik. All- Allied planes returned from all raids, but operations were restricted over the battle lines by bad weather. With the capture of Teano the Fifth Army gained a tremendous advantage in the struggle for the roads to Rome. In Ihis area Ihe bulk of German artillery was con- cenlraled and it was firing from behind bulky Massico ridge. The one-mile smash to Teano also gave Ihe Fiflh Army possession of Ihe village of Anfitica. The thrust to Valleagricola also routed the enemy from the villages of Otello, Mancancllo and Nevierel ; Cerasito, Collecarrisi, Gentile, San Matleo, Mazzone, Ferrigiro, Campodiciello, Gronelair, Campitello, Le Finciere, De Salvia and San Gregorio also were taken in the Eighth Army's advances. Thus a total of 21 towns and villages were swept into the Allied lines. FUNERAL FOR PACKER ' Helena, Nov. ' 1 — (/P) — Funeral services will be held at 9:30 a. m. tomorrow for Walter E.
