"Women are busy everywhere in defense work and cannot be hampered by their clothes," she says. "The World War brought the short skirt and bobbed hair. Go further back in history and you find the battle dress of Greeks and Roman Amazons- short tunics and sandals with one half of the bosom bare to free the arm to lift a bow and shoot an arrow. Our modern women, fightnig for democracy and freedom, must have their batlle dress — clolhes that are more- practical and less romantic, in which comfort and freedom will be the keynotes. It remains to be seen what fashions this war will give us." OPM Hints New Supply Policy May Abandon Dollar Economy to Avoid Shortages By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON - By tenring a leuf! from Adolf Hitler's book on how to' get the raw materials for modern war- I fare, tho United States has given the first hint that in this production struggle H may abandon dollar economy in order to avoid shortages. A few weeks ngo, the Washington Elate Toll Bridge Authority made Duplication to the Army (which Is in chnrge of rivers and harbors throughout the land) for permission to dump the 3,500 tons of steel cable from the Tacoma Narrows bridge into Puget Sound. Back of this was the tragic story of the collapse of the Tacoma bridge in ^November, 1940. "Galloping Gertie," us the infant bridge was called because she waved like a flag in a-gale cverytime the wind whistled, played crack-the-whip once too often and the flooring ripped loose from its overhead moorings and crashed into the bay. For approximately n year, tho thick suspension cables dangled tons r supporting cables in the wind, while WashingtiVJans debated what was to be done about rebuilding the bridge. Originally, it was a Federal Works Agency project, but rebuilding it was another matter. It wo." only some weeks ago that final arrangements were made for private capital to construct o brooder bridge that would withstand the wildest gales that rip across the Narrows. Immediately,- the problem of disposing of 7,500,0000 pounds of "use- 1 We were sitting in a dentist's office the other day when some guy looked UP from the paper he had found on the table and Said brightly: "Well, I sec there's been some fierce fightin' around'that Argonne forest.'.'

Today, when you say, "I am an American/' you can be proud and confident that it means something to the rest of the world, \- ,, less" cable presented itself. A survey was made and it was discovered that the cost of salvaging the cnble (hundreds of strands of thick steel wire drawn tightly together and encased in a galvanized tube) would exceed considerably the cost of steel scrap in the open market. Hence, the decision to roll the cable off the saddles on Ihe towers and drop it into the 40-foot depths of the Narrows. The decision had been tentatively approved when Carlton S. Proctor, chairman of the committee on steel conservation and reclamation of tho engineers' defense board, discovered it. For once the wheels of OPM ground swiftly. Within a few hours OPM had P\ telegram from the Washington bridge authority saying "An insurance settlement has been made on the bridge . . . the Washington Toll Bridge Authority will offer for sale''' all scrap- metal which can be made available ." That was enough for OPM and 3,500 tons of steel scrap was rescued, from briny oblivion. Just what it will cost hasn't been determined ,yot. It may be far above the "ceiling" plac- on scrap slec-1 prices, but OPM ir , not particularly interested in .• price. It is more interested Choicest ingredients? Yes...but a great deal more The Home of Budweiser pays premium prices for the cream of each year's barley harvest. But that if not enough. The choicest hops are reserved for Budweiser, But that is not enough. Nor is it enough that it is brewed by the most expensive process in America. Of course, you expect and you get all these in Budweiser,,.and something more. It's the most important ingredient of all—the art of blending Nature's finest into a perfect product, which could have been developed only by generations of experts, Who says so? All America ,,, for America has made Budweiser the biggest-selling beer in history. the ... thg ffict that once salvaged, the scrap can be converted into 100 light or medium tanks, into 200 four-ton trucks, or into GOO IG-inch shells for the battleships of our navy. As I said in the beginning, this is one of tho first evidences that ihi United States is coming to grips with the real problem of shortages in raw materials. For months, a number of government workers have been saying that we would havo to take a page from Hitler's book if wo were going to meet the soaring demand for some raw materials. Until now, they have been mostly voices crying in the wilderness. Most often cited by these persons in their arguments was Hitler's solution of the copper shortage in Germany at the outset of the war. Where, he had asked his experts, is the most copper in Germany? They had answered, in the rain gutters around our homes and buildings. Then go get ' Hitler ordered. The protest was that it would cost many times the value of scrap copper to salvage it, but Hitler's order stood and the result was | that the Nazis had enough copper to start and carry on the war. In terms of those early victories, it came so cheaply that its cost could only be considered negligible. Apparently, the United Slates is learning this lesson: When a shortage is almost certain, the cost o fa product doesn't matter; the important thing is to get it. Six hundred 10- inch shells could be the margin of victory in World War II.

OFF, A certain gentleman always avoided the smoking car when he commuted —couldn't stand smoke himself and didn't like other people to smoke. He found a seat in a non-smoking car one day, but to his dismay a man came in and sat facing him and lighted up a cigar. Not wanting to make a scene, the other man waited till the conductor came around to punch his ticket. As he handed it to the conductor, he nudged him and nodded to the brazen smoker. The conductor nodded back, took another punch out of the ticket and went on. You may be a fine upstanding person but it wakes no difference to a banana skin. War does not determine who is RIGHT—only who is LEFT. The roan who once most wisely said, "Be sure you're right, then go ahead, 1 might well have added this, to-wit: "Be sure you're wrong before you quit."
