Undoubtedly it will come as soon as it is humanly possible to get Set for it. Lord Strabolgi, chief labor whip in the British House of Lords, declared Sunday that the next 100 days "will be' as i important in the history of the 'world as 'the 10 days before Waterloo.

Speaking of the peace, he said that "more than once before Allies have stood together in war, and fallen apart in peace. That certainly will be Germany's game once again. She will play it will all she knows from the moment the last shot is fired and then prepare for the next challenge." Greeted by a loud ovation, Eden declared: Production of Food to Be Short-Jones Washington, Dec. 14 —(A')— Congress heard from War Food Administrator Marvin Jones today that while "there will be a need for more food than we can produce" next year, there is no serious shortage in sight if production goals are met. These goals, Jones testified during hearings on a farm labor supply bill reported to the House, by the Appropriations Committee* call for an all-out effort in 1944 to boost by four per cent the record production of 1943, which was 32 per cent more than in the basic 1935-1939 period. Jones appeared in support of new funds to finance the importation of foreign workers and the recruitment of domestic help to assist in planting and harvesting a bumper crop. Since April, 1940, he said, some 4,000,000 workers have left the farms, many of them strapping young men who went into the armed forces or into war plants. To compensate for that loss, he said, "the American farmer has been driven to extreme measures," farm working hours have been increased, farmers' wives and children have been put to svork, and farmers generally have been .forced to train inexperienced city youth and to use foreign workers, troops, and war prisoners.

Vinson. ' A directive sent jointly to the War Production Board and the Office of Price Administration outlined two principal objectives: To avoid further shortages of low- prices civilian-use products, and to adjust the price structure for such -goods as a stimulant to production. The plan would require joint action by the two agencies addressed, and ranges from proposed orders to manufacturers with what are regarded as excessive recent profit mat'gins to produce essential civilian.,;goods for sale at cost, to authorizations for price rin'Creases in excess of present legal maximums to maintaing production" by producers who : are now losing money. All actions taken under the directive must be approved by Vinson's office before becoming effective. The order specifies: (1) When WPB finds that present price schedules "constitute a serious impedirnentu" to adequate production of civilian goods, WPB is to advise OPA of this finding;. (2) The price agency is then empowered to revise price schedules to maintain production and regulate profits under a strict formula laid down by Vinson. Under this formula, the producer whose current profits from all operations are not more than double those earned in the 1936-1939 base period, (or who is operating at a loss) may be authorized by OPA to increase his selling price for an essential item to a figure not to exceed ^the unit production cost plus two per cent. Manufacturers whose profits from all oprations are more than double the 1936-1939 base period may be ordered, under the Vinson plan, to manufacture essential ci- | vilian goods for sale at cost. The Vinson order is designed to resolve a long-standing source of friction between the WPB and the OPA. The production agency has been exerting pressure for price •Mill STOHV, Hr,llnw. rUemU* niitl imlVrrnlty prnreHfcot 1 , him putt* n bfirftnhi wHIi n iihnntnin.

He sat down on a chair near the door. "I heard, by an accident, by what accident is $o matter, that one Of my class was ill and solitary. I received no other descrip t r tion of him than that he lived in this street. Beginning, my inquiries at the first house in it I have found him." "I have been ill, sir," returned the student, not merely with a modest hesitation, but with a kind of awe of him, "but am greatly better. An attack of fever—of the brain, I believe—has weakened me, but I am much belter.' I can- ntfc say I have been solitary in my illness, or I should forget the min-. istering hand that has been near me." "You are speaking of the keeper's wife," said Redlaw. "Yes." The student bent his head, as if he rendered her some silent homage. The Chemist, in whom there was a cold, monotonous apathy, glanced at the student leaning with his hand upon the couch. "I remembered your- name," he said, "when it was mentioned to me downstairs just now; and I recollect your face. We have held but very little personal communication together?" ."Very little." '"Voti have fetlfed nnd wlth- [fawn from me, more than nhy of the rest, 1 think?" The student signified assent. "And .why?" said the Chemist; not with the least expression of interest, but with n moody, wayward kind of curiosity. "Why?" * * * '"PHE young man, who had heard . him with increasing agitation, cried with sudden earnestness and with trembling lips: "Mr. Redlaw! You have discovered me. You know my secret!" "Secret?" said the Chemist harshly. "I know?" "But, Mr. Redlaw," said the student, "as a just man, and a good man, think how innocent I am, except in name and descent, of participation in any wrong inflicted on you, or in any sorrow you have borne." "Sorrow!" said Redlaw, laughing. "Wrong! What are those to kneV" "For heaven's sake," entreated the shrinking student, "do not let the mere interchange of a few words with me change you like this, Sir! Let me pass again from your knowledge and notice. Let me occupy my old reserved and distant place among those whom you instruct. Know me only by the name I have assumed, and not by that of Longford—" "Longford!" exclaimed the other. "The name my mother bears, Sir," faltered the young man, "the name she took, when she might, perhaps, have taken one more honored." , Redlaw, unmoved, unchanged, "a'nd looking at him with a staring frown, answered by no word or sign. "Mr. Redlaw," said the student faintly, "what I would have said. 1 have said 111, for my strength is strange to me ns yet; but for anything unworthy in this fraud of mine, forgive me, and for all the rest forget me!" * * * "'TllE past is past," said the . Chemist. "It dies like the brutes. Who talks to me of its traces In my life? He raves or lies! If you want money, here it is. 1 came to offer it; and that is all 1 came for. There can be nothing else that brings me here," ha muttered, holding his head again, with both his hands. "There can be nothing blse, and yet—" He had tossed his purse Upon the table. As he fell into this dim cogitation, with himself, the student took it up, and held it out to him. "Take it back, Sir," he said proudly, though not angrily. "I wish you could take from me, with it, the remembrance of your words and ofTer." "You do?" he relovted, with a wild light in his eyes. "You do?" "1 do!" The Chemist went close to him, for the first time, and took the purse, and turned him by the arm, and looked him in the face. "There is sorrow and trouble in sickness, is there not?" he demanded, with a Inugh. The wondering student answered, "Yes." "In-its unrest, in its anxiety, in its suspense, in all its train of physical and mental miseries?" said the Chemist, with a wild unearthly exultation. "All best for- fotten, are they not?" The student did not answer, but again passed his hand, confusedly, across his forehead. Redlaw still held him by the sleeve, when Milly's voice. was heard outside. Redlaw released his hold, as he listened. • "Of all the visitors who could come here," he said, in a hoarse alarmed voice, turning to his companion, "this is the one I should desire most to avoid. Hide me!" The student opened a frail door in the wall, communicating with a small inner room. Redlaw passed in hastily, and shut it after him. (To Be Continued) Many Who Went Down oivUSSb Liscome Bay Gave Own Lives Trying to Save Shipmates | Crommelin said. &y EUGENE BURNS Pearl Harbor, Dec. 14 —(/P) When the U. S. S.

The Japr.nesc submarine's torpedo struck on the starboard side around 5:13 a. m., said Capt. John G. Crommelin. Jr., of Montgomery, Ala., who told the story of the next and final 20 minutes of the carrier's career. Crommelin, chief of staff of Rear Atlm. Henry M. Mulllnix, who was lost with the ship, clove from the flight deck with even less on than a new-born babe, because "1 left part of my hide behind." Coming from a shower bath and wearing only a bath towel when the torpedo exploded. Crommelin .oined officers and enlisted men in efforts to save lives. "The lights went out but flames ighted the ship's interior Instant- y." he added. The gasoline and oil-fed flames burned off Crommelin's hair, seared his right side, shoulder, legs and the soles of his feet. "The first men topside were a flight squadron leader, Lt. Comclr. Marshall Beebc, of Anaheim. Calif., and a young pilot named Helms, who were half carrying, half dragging a seaman who had a broken lc«," Crommelin said. The seaman scorned to be dying, but Beebe and Helms put a - life jacket on him and the ship's doctor, Lt. Comdr. J. B. Rowe of Milford. Mich., gave the man some morphine. "They threw him overboard, and I'll be damned if the kid didn't live, and was picked up," Crommelin said.

Purchasing of December rye by arge commission houses immediately disclosed a scaracity of offerings with the result that the market rallied around 5 cents from the early low. Strength was a feature m the oats pit, the May contract going to a new high. All wheat futures sold at a new seasonal high, December crossing $1.71 and selling within less than one cent of the outside possible ceiling price mentioned by the trade.
