( How a sailor survived and turned to duty after the burning of S3 per cent of the surface o! his body--one of the largest nonfatal burns on record--lias been reported by .the Navy. Citing the case as an example of the extensive burnings the human body now can sustain because of such war-developed irea-t tnents as plasma for shock and penicillin "for combatting Infection, Lt. Cmclr. John R. Johnson of the Navy medical corps gave .details In the naval medical bulletin. The 19-year-old, unnamed sailor was 'burned 'almost entirely from head to foot in a gasoline explosion somowhere in the tropics. * Few Parts Escaped The only parts of his body that escaped were that part of Lho head covered by thick hair; the feet and ankles which were covered with field shoes; the lower abdomen and upper thighs which were clothed in abbreviated shorts. Even the delicate membranes beneath the eyelids were burned, and so were the membranes of nose and throat. The patient was under treatment for 02 days and during that time he developed such complications as shock, anemia, clotting in various blood vessels, and blood poisoning. His legs and arms were bandaged, but because bandaging of the body is poorly tolerated in the heat of the tropics, his trunk was sprayed with a vaseline-paraf- fin mixture, and his face was coated thickly with sulfathiazolc ointment. He was given morphine, plasma, transfusions o f , whole blood, received penicillin 'every three hours for 17 days--a total of 1,700,000 units, About a m o n t h after he was injured, skin grafts were placed on two of the worst-burned areas. The skin for the grafts was taken from previously burned areas which had healed. After two months in a hospital he was sent Lo a rear area for a ' Truman Put High In Poll By Gallup Survey Shows That 87 Per Cent Of People Give Approval TJy GKOTtGE GALLUP Director, American Institute Of Public Opinion PRINCETON, N. J., Ju]y 2. --After only a little more than two months in office, President Harry t S, Truman has achieved a popular regard that compares favorably with that of Franklin D, Roosevelt at it:', highest recorded point in wartime, A coast-to-coast, check-up, in which 215 Interviewers qiuistioned voters in farm areas, towns and cities, shows that nearly nine out of every ten Americans,approve of Jie way Mr. Truman is handling lis job, and that he has the. approval of as jnany Republican voters as Democrats. Every president of course enjoys "honeymoon" period of high opularity after taking office, the ength of. the period varying with lis actions and with events, Al- hough Mr. Truman will be a ncw- omer at the meeting of the Big "hreo next month, there can be o question t h a t he will take with im the solid support and confi- enc'e of his fellow countrymen, as shown by the following: "Do you approve or disapprove Ml.

This was the highest recorded point in Mr. Roosevelt's popularity since, -the poll began operating in 19M. Typical , of the sentiments oo Mr. Truman are the following taken at random from hundreds of: comments gathered by the poll interviewers: "Truman is fair-minded . . . A hard worker . . .

'6y Joe Marsh Lud Denny Solves the Locust Problem Lud Denny may not be much of a farmer, but most folks allow he's pretty smart at solving other people's problems. Like Alvin Blake's locusts. For years Alvin has been trying to got rid of a grove of Jo- casts. They aren't using up any good land, but they annoy Alvin. Every time he cuts them down", up they shoot again. "What'U I do about them locusts?" Alvin asks Lud. "Well, if you can't get rid of 'em," says Lud, "I'd say you better get to like 'em." From where I sit, that's sound philosophy-applied to people Just as much as locust trees. You can't always change folks to your way of thinking-some may prefer beer to buttermilk, or a double harness' to a single one-but you can get to like them (,'f you take the trouble).
