Almost every ballot mentioned the betting increase as the greatest of the war-bred changes. The estimated 1943 mutuel play In 15 states, is $710,779,432 compared lo $563,579,895 in 19 states in 1942. Latest figures show that 4,019 professional boxers arc in the armed services. Despite their absence the ring had a successful year, with each of the 22 brawls held in Madison Square Garden to date having an average attendance of 14,137 and a gate of $51,046 compared with 13,228 and $40,333 in 1942.

He allowed only 1.75 earned runs for each nine-inning stint on the hill. Next came Max Lamer with 1.90 and Cooper with 2.30. To make St. Louis' domination even more complete, two other Cardinal hurlers -Alpha Brazle and Harry Brecheen - were the leaders among the pitchers who did not hurl 10 complete games.

W, HERCHER London, Dec. 29 — (/P) — Allied medium bombers peppered' air fields near Rome yeslerday a n c Nazi propagandists sought today to picture the operation as an at tack on the capital itself. A communique from Allied head- uarters at Algiers confirmed the lombings today. Earlier enemy ra- io stations were on the air with wild-eyed descriptions of how 'heavy bombs" shattered the out- kirts of Rome, causing damage and casualties in residential quar- ers. The Paris radio broadcast that bombs fell on Garbatella about 1 1-4 miles east of the Vatican City and close enough for the pope to see the raid. The official report from Allied headquarters, however, said the bombers had attacked the hangars, buildings and dispersal areas of the airfield at Ciampino, south of Rome, and accurately blasted the CentoceUo airdrome easl of Ihe city. Allied planes based in England also began winging into aclion again after a Christmas lull. vui.u, u, c ,— -- . northwest of Rome, and Anzio and Ncltuno, southwest of the Italian capital. ' Air Force headquarters, mean while, announced the Adriatic had been virtually closed lo German shipping as had Ihe walers belween France and Northern Italy as the result of Allied air patrols. The announcement added on the other hand that since Nov. 8, 1942, 22,526,485 tons of Allied shipping had been escorted in the Mediterranean with a loss of only one and one-half percent Slight Change in Rationing for January Washington, Dec. 29 — (If) —The new January meat chart lists only one small point value boost — on fresh hams, bul Price Administrator Chester Bowles sees the ration cost of meat beginning to climb more noticeably in February. The OPA chief, in a radio address last night, said he wouldn't be a bit surprised lo find higher values on some meat products the month after next, and added "it seems most likely that points may be higher in March and April" and during the summer. The change in fresh ham values, effective Sunday, hikes the ration term "New Deal" because, he said, "Old Doctor New Deal" has cured the country's internal ills, The patient is all right internally now, he said, but Old Doctor New Deal had to call on his partner, an orthopedic surgeon known as "Doctor Win-the-War," to heal the ex- ;ernal wounds of a bad accident suffered al Pearl Harbor. The president thought it rather puerile and political to bring the mailer up at all, bul he enumerated about 30 New Deal laws and policies and challenged his cnlics lo say which of Ihem they would ignore if Ihe patient got Ihe internal sickness again. The New York Herald-Tribune's Washington bureau chief, Berl Andrews, Ihere^ upon asked: "Does that all add up lo a fourth term declaration?" Laughter swept the president s oval office and the chief executive redening, replied: "Oh now — we are not talking about things like that now. You are getting picayune. That's a grand word to use — another word beginning with a p-picayune. (He had used puerile and political before). I know you won't mind my saying that, but I have to say something like that." When word first went out last week that Mr. Roosevelt wanted to drop the "New Deal" slogan, Republican National Chairman Harrison E. Spangler termed it an effort by the chief executive to unburden 1.1 1* «* o "nniitipai load" while ens,> figSs-r-R"§?>S6B<ah- leader, -TDU that . this ..program was finally thrown out. He then questioned whether that old policy should have been readopted in, say, 1890, and added: The nalion will have a program to meet the needs of the time. The New Deal was to meet the problems of 1932-33. In time the nation will have to have a new program, regardless of who is running the government.

Thus, in the first week of his new winter offensive, Vatutin has recaptured approximately half the territory which Marshal Fritz Von Mannstein took during his abortive five-week tank drive in the Kiev bulge. Imporlant towns retaken include Radomysl and Brusilov.

A joint Admiralty and Air Ministry communique telling/of these blows in southern waters off the coast of France followed by only a few hours publication of the ful story of the sinking of the Germar battleship Scharnhorst in the cold Arctic. Full details of the Biscay action are yet to be told but it plainly was a large scale enterprise and one which perhaps is still continuing 'Other details are awaited," the communique said. In the same area an Axis block ade runner was sent to the bottom by coastal command planes. Nothing was said of any British loss. This new spurt of British naval fire — fire which already had dealt a crippling if not a mortal wound to German capital ship power— brought to at least 42 the number f German destroyers and torpedo Doats known sunk since the start Allied Invaders Go Nearer Cape ••• : '.

This is not just a question of dollars and cents, he added, although he said some people think it is. It is a question of long range policy, he continued, which ties in human beings with dollars, to the benefit of capital and of human White Russia Gen.

He said it seems pretty clear himself of a "political load" while •unning for a fourth term. "Can the leopard change his spots?" Spangler asked then. There was no immediate Republican reaction to yesterday's discussion, which went on at such length that the White House did the unusual thing of furnishing newsmen with a stenographic transcript for their guidance, but not direct quotation except in a few instances. Twin-engined Mosquito bombers struck at western Germany last night and typhoon bombers hit the "rocket-gun coast" of northern France. Both missions were carried out without loss. In addition fighters swept over enemy territory in daylight, destroying a German plane and losing one of IJ^eir own. cost one point a pound, eliminating the differential between fresh and smoked types in effect the last three weeks. The reason Considerably increased vmoement of the fresh cut since validation recently of a special stamp for five points of pork. The values on the rest of pork (Contwiue4 on P^ge Three) One question and answer at the end of the discussion, which was left out of the transcript, left reporters a little puzzled because it differed a bit from something the president had said previously — to the effect that when victory comes the program of the past has got to be carried on, in the light of what is going on in other countries. Left out was the reply to a question whether he meant the "New Deal" was scrapped only temporarily and was to be picked up again after the war. He replied by recalling that a ten-year program of repression and punishment for the south was adopted after the Civil War under the leadership of Thaddeus Stev- that the nation must now plan for and help to bring about, an expanded economy which will result in more security, employment, recreation, education, health and housing for all its citizens so the conditions of 1932 and the start of 1933 won't come back again. He said, the post-war program hasn't been settled on at all — ex cept in generalities. As for now, he repeated the remedies "Old Doctoi New Deal" used were for interna troubles and that with "Doctoi Win-the-War" now in attendancr the principal emphasis, the over whelming emphasis, should be or winning the war. At the outset, he said some peo pie have to be told how to spel "cat," even people with a norma ly good education, and a lot of peo pie have forgotten entirely. He wa referring to why the New Pea came into existence and the rem dies proposed to cure economic ills He said the ills were remedied, but a lot of people peddling all this talk about "New Deal" today are not saying anything about why the patient had to have all those reme- He then read from a list of about 30 New Deal laws, including bank deposit insurance, soil conservation, old age and unemployment insurance, and others, always ending of the war. This total is exclusive if ships known to have been hit and probably lost. ? The first announcement did not say when the action took^lace.

It is not only very expensive to buy these articles new, but sometimes they .can't.be found in the stores. There are, no doubt, many of them in homes that do not need them and their owners would be glad to put them to good use. These things need not be in first class condition, as they can be patched or mended before they are given out, and will serve the purpose as well as new articles, anc save the Red Cross time and money. Most families who lose then- homes have no money or credit, and will suffer unless some friends or organization comes to their rescue.

It coincided . l with the assertion by the Chung- s: ting radio that the Japanese, fac- ng an "acute" food shortage, were getting only one-third of the daily rice ration allowed the Chinese, In this country, two members of Congress expressed differing views on how long it would take to defeat Japan. Senator George (D-Ga) said he could not visualize Japan holding, put long after the collapse of Germany, commenting "I'm not one of those who think Japan will hold on ' for three, four -or five years longer. When Germany falls, she will begin looking for a way out, m my opinion." On the other hand, Rep.
