Take your favorite radio mystery program—the one with the screams in the night, the stab in the back, the poison pool, the six assorted murders, and the mocking villain who is always tracked to earth a scant two minutes before the commercial. The villain may get it in the neck — but he gets it in the pocketbook, too. And the radio detective who delivers those sermons on the mea- gre profits in crime is likely to think it over in a Park Avenue penthouse.

Raymond Edward Johnson, the voice behind the squeaking door in the "Inner Sanctum," is believed to be in the same class — as are Claudia Morgan, the Mrs. Thin Man, and Santos Ortega, whose deep voice as "Nero Wolfe" descends right to the pits of crime. Ted de Corsia, who specializes in both dumb'cops (as Sgt. Velio ii) "Ellery Queen") and villains, is another whose paycheck disproves all they teach in reform school.

BY ROSELLEN CALLAHAN \ NEA Staff Writer There's no place like home, j these gas-rationed days, so gadgets and gimmicks, trays and tables, (crystal, silver, bath ensembles and almost anything you can name to make a home more attractive and entertaining easier are featured for Christmas giving. They solve the problem, too, of what to buy hose who seem to have just about .•verylhing. Any hostess, for instance, would be delighted to find under her tice n folding buffet carl or standing juller's tray to simplify serving, , especially if it is the type which j can ,be tucked compactly away in the closet when not in use. And there's always room on her what-not shelf for just one more piece or rare china demitasse cup and saucer.

Clarification of Franco's Position Seen Washingon, Dec. 22 — — Further clarification of the position of "•pain's Generalissimo Francisco Franco is expected here as a result of American representations over Falangist vandalism in the United States consulate in Valencia. The incident, reported by Ambassador Carlton Hayes from Madrid, was the latest of a series of actions against Allied representatives in various parts of Spain.— The news came almSt simultaneously with announcement in Mad^rid that Franco had dissolved the Falanage militia and granted an amnesty to all political prisoners except those hclfl for murder Abnut 8,000 will be freed by Christmas, one dispacth estimated. Hayes said two persons, later identified as Falangists, entered the American consulate at Valencia Saturday, tore pictures off the walls and made speeches to visitors af the consulate. They were arrested by Spanish police. It was the first time, as far as is known here, that the Spanish government had moved against anti-foreign demonstrations by members of the Falange, only official party. Some months ago Falangists entered the same consulate at Valencia and stole some information-bulletins. The United States protested at that time, but the culprits were •icver caught. The unusual publication of Ambassador Hayes' report was regarded as an indirect warning to Spain cha this government takes a serious view of the disturbances, Last week, the British government in a strongly, worded state- .ment refused to accept the Spanish answer to its protest over an insult to the British consul at Saragossa. Spain had said the government was not responsible for the Falangists actions, but the British said that since they were uniformed members of the official parly, Madrid should account for them.

The big bombers of the 8th U. S. Air Force, after a one-day layoff, headed right back for the same section where Monday 500 bombers attacked Bremen, submarine and shipbuilding center. It appeared new evidence of the intention to neutralize the effectiveness of this region of the Nazi war effort. It was the seventh heavy operation of the month for the Americans and kept rolling the great day and night offensive which opened Monday, In addition, wave on wave of Allied bombers swept out in what looked like one of the greatest sustained cross-channel assaults of the year toward the Pas de Calais region, presumably to attack the same targets which have been hit successive blows in the two preceding days and which have been described only as military. Installations. Neutral reports have sug - gested that the Germans may have extensive rocket gun emplacement in the French area. All morning and during most of the afternoon big formations of medium and light bombers, escorted by masses of fighters, winged through the brilliant sunshine across Dover strait, returning on average 30 minutes later, Today's activity followed a series of blows by RAF Mosquito bombers against unspecified targets in Western Germany last night. The latest Mosquito blow was carried out without loss, a com - munique s.aid. About one-quarter of all United Nations tonnage is in Liberty ships. ' Farmers Must Supply Own Lumber Needs While the War Food Administration is making every effort to provide lumber products needed for producing and distributing farm crops, Administrator Marvin Jones 'oday checked a part of the responsibility .back to farmers themselves. Through the lumber they use on their farms and the forest products required for boxes, baskets, barrels and other containers of foods and farm products, and for farm machinery and equipment—farmers constitute one of the biggest groups of forest products users. Lumber used on farms for the construction and maintenance of farm buildings requires three and one-half billion board feet, the Administrator pointed out. To this must be added the pulp-wood requirements for countless cartons and bags, wagon wood stock, wood for farm machinery, and other miscellaneous farm uses ifor lumber. Because of the critical over-all lumber and pulp-wood shortage which directly affects farmers, who are large users of lumber and wood products, Jones indicated that farmers should take action along these two lines: (1) Increasing production from farm woodlands during the winter. (2) Providing labor for forest industries during the slack winter season on farms. In this respect attention was called to Selective Service regulation which permit farmers and farm laborers to do such seasonal work without losing their deferred classification in 'agriculture, The administrator commented upon the ! seasonal urgency of farmers making their contribution either by working in their own woodlands or taking jobs in lumber camps or other forest industries. 'Farmers or farm laborers can be spared only during the winter months," he said, "and in some areas, such as New England, wood cutting probably will end sometime in January when deep snow pre- We're wrapping up every good wish we can think of—in this little message, which comes to say "Christmas Cheer" to you, and everyone in your household. Hope Cigar Store vents woods Work. Hence, their help Is needed at once." Increased production from farm woodlands Is needed for the manufacture of containers, which are highly esscntialto food production, War' Food Administration officials stated. Many veneer mills, basket and crate factories, and pulp and paper mills depend to a large extent on supplies of logs and bolts produced by farmers. Current shortages in supply have been attributed In part to a slackening in production from farm woodlands. Increased production of these forest products by farmers themselves will aid in assuring a supply of containers sufficient for the marketing of 1944 crops. To market the fruit and vegetable crop in 1944 some '190 million new baskets, and hampers, 450 million berry cups, 50 million wlrebound veneer ooxes, more- than 300 million nailed boxes and crates,, and large quantities of paper and pulp products for "wraps ,,liners, pads, bags and cartons, will, be required. Other farm crops expand these needs. If farmers would'.'contribute part of their time this : winter as requested it would help make wood products available: on, the following farm uses: Repair of farm buildings; repair of farm Implements, such as wagons, wood stock for wagon tongues, eveners, wagons, boxes,.hayracks, tool handles; .new buildings to house.expanded crops, livestock and poultry .production; new buildings for providing storage for crops not previously grown; new buildings for.-replacing losses caused by tornadoes, fires, storms; fence posts, gates, Since the last war, the range of has been increased 100 per cent, individual firepower 250 per cent, size of bombs. 300 per cent, and speed of tanks 700 per cent.
