Vinson snid today that if Congress orders on overall eight-cents- pcr-hour Increase in wages for non- operating railway employers, it will have broken the Little Sioel formula. Expressing this view in n statement submitted to a Senate Interstate Commerce subcommittee considering a resolution favoring executive approval of the 8-cenls increase, Vinson said: "By such action (adoption of the resolution) Congress will have told the country tha t aprivileged group is outside the stabilization program and is nol to join in the battle against inflation." The non-operating railway workers, now taking a strike vote in connection with their unsettled wage demands, more than a year ago asked for 20-ccnt-pcr-hour increases.

That fact holds sorry .prospects for the Nazis. yesterday at a round-table lunch' eon where we were discussing the .war someone asked how it is that the Russians are able to keep going •Jn view of the terrible devastation they suffered throughout the industrial areas overrun by the Nazis, i Theie are several reasons for this tistoniihmg Russian success. The Chief one is that even before the war Premier Stalin had the farsightedness to develop his heavy industries to a high pitch in the 'Ural mountain region, far to the ea«t ot the danger zone. That re, gion is rich in minerals, including copper, bauxite, tungsten, .ickel and oil. hfen the Germans swarmed ' igh Russia's western industrial Stalin at once intensified o&on in the Urals and has towards overcoming the suffered in the invasion. 'However, there's another highly important reason for the Muscovite success, and that lies in the spirit of the workers. ten Donald M. Nelson, chair- of our War Production Board, returned the other day from his trip to Russia, he was enthusiastic v, in his praise of the people. He said A£. everyone is constantly working for |C' th« army and no sacrifice is too "I didn't know what an all-out war was." he declared, "until I saw the all-out war Russia was said.

On Oct. 1, 1941 there were 30,000 accounts on the Revenue Department books com- SUPPERS! pared with 23,250 on Nov. 1 this year. i "We have had a lot of small businesses closed during the last two years," Adkins said. "Since January 1, for instance, 982 grocery stores went out of business. However, 591 new groceries were, established during the same period." The $60,000,000 highway program would ultimately bring about completion of every unpavcd link of U. S. highways and all important state routes, the governor told municipal executives.

Lures 15-Inch Bass With False Teeth Charleston, W. Va. — </P>— Dr. Hoy B. McCusky always has believed that bass will strike on almost anything, but he had a difficult time trying to convince a friend. Game Protector Roy Stewart of Plesant county informed the slate conservation commission that Dr. McCusky, a St. Marys dentist, found that his fishing partner Glen Davis, was a doubting Thomas. Stewart explained that to prove his point Dr. McCusky took out his lower set of false teeth, attached one edge to a trebble hook and the other to a leader. With the novel lure, the dentist soon landed a 15-inch bass. The fish was caught in Middle Island creek. Child's As above in all soft leather. Sizes 6 up to 3 1.49 At Right . . .

Shc turned her face a little away so that it was in shadow. "If it were you I wouldn't mine as much," said her mother, "you— I suppose you're cut out for lha sorl of life, you're like your father But Nancy and I are alike. She would be miserable, married to ; small town doctor, leading Ihe sor of fulile, boring life I've always led. "You wore in love with father,' Emily reminded her, shortly.

"Nancy," said her mother, immediately, "is like me, as I've said. 3ut this is a different generation. VTore impatient, more restless. She'd never stick with Jim no natter how much she cared for lim. And I don't believe that she does. This is just—amusing herself. If she cares for anyone—now —it's Frank Edgar, and he's perfectly suitable. They would be very happy together. I—I wanl you to realize that, Emily. I was distressed when I overheard you and Jim—" "Just what do you want me to do?" asked Emily bluntly. "You needn't do anything," sait her mother carefully. "You needn' encourage Frank for one thing. I: you don't if he and Nancy are together a good deal for the res' of the summer—" She rose, put the top back or the cold cream jar, moved to ware the door, "Wait a minute," said Emily "what did you mean when yoi said you didn't think Nancy carec for anyone now—except Frank?' Her mother turned, "Your Aunt Martha wrote me,' she said, "about a man on tha last trip they took. Nancy ha snapshots of him in her desk, saw them. I saw a letter she startec to him and tore up—" "You read ill" asked Emily, ghast. "Why not, she's my daughter," aid Millicent. "I pieced it to- jether. H was—hysterical. . . . Thank God, she didn't send it.

The letter said," she went on, 'that if he would write her, Nancy .vould manage to go lo New York and meet him. Now perhaps you understand why I've been nearly crazy with worry. I haven't spoken 0 her, I know better than that. I can't tell your father. But I am elling you, Emily, because I want roil to know how unhappy she's >een—must have been to consider anything as insane—and how much :'VG counted on someone like frank making her forget this Drew Warner." "She's never spoken of him to me since she came home," said Emily, "or in any of her letters." "She wouldn't," said Millicent. I judged that, from what she wrote him ... or meant to write him." Emily said, "Perhaps she rewrote it* "I watched," said her mother calmly, "I don't think she did. Besides, he isn't in New York now. 1 saw a clipping on Nancy's desk, Martha must have sent it. He's off on some woman's estate." The door' closed behind her. At least, thought Emily, I've my orders. I know where I stand. She felt the tears sting in her throat again. She thought, I must try to sleep. But she could not until she heard the office telephone ringing, in its impatient way, blurred by distance. It had been turned off in her father's bedroom but it would be ringing wildly and . unceasingly in the garage apartment until answered. It stopped ringing. A moment later she heard Nancy's step on the gravel and the back door closed. .She heard the car snort out of the garage, turn and drive off down the street. (To Be Continued) Plane Gallery of U. S.

In normal times, medical authorities estimate, these mosquitoes cause 300,000,00(1 cases of malaria fevers throughout the world each year with two lo three million resultant deaths. Rear Admiral ttuss T. Mclntirc, j navy surgeon general, once tie- j scribed malaria ns "a much more deadly enemy than any foe we may be called upon to face." This is especially true in ' this global war when millions of men arc being moved from normally malaria-froo areas, to the mosqui- lo-fillccl tropics. The incidence of this dread disease is so high and ils fever destroys the effcclivoness of troops so thoroughly lhal in World War II malaria is virtually more deadly lo both sides than the enemy. The number, of malaria infections and deaths among American and Allied troops is a military secret II is no secret that malaria helped lick Ihe Americans on Balaan. Military excursions and even great civilizations have been destroyed by malaria. Medical historians credit il with a major role in the decay of Greece, and mosquitoes from the swamps of southern Italy and the Ponlinc marshes are said lo have contributed to the decline of tho Roman empire. Union armies in the War Between The States lost 94,000 dead through armies. Field trials arc now being given scvcnil promising drugs for Ihc provcnlion of malaria. II may well be that one of the world's greal- csl benefils from Ihis war will be the development of-a drug thai will successfully prevent malaria. Reds Go (Continued S-i'orn rage One) Mr. and Mrs. A.
