Servicemen's Ties With Family Kept Intact Through Red Cross Soldier Ploys Safe With Censor Spindale, N. C. —(/?)—Mrs. Bonnie Duncan of Spindale received this letter from her son Bill who is in the U. S. Army Air Corps. "Dear Mom: "Can't write n thing—the censor to blame. Just say I,m well, and sign my name. Can't tell where we sailed front, can't mention the date and can't even number the meals that I ate. Can't sny where we're going, don't know where we'll land, couldn't inform you if met by a band. Can't mention the weather, can't say if there's rain, all military secrets must secrets remain. Can't have a flashlight to guide me at night, can't smoke cigarcts except out of sight. Can't keep n diary for such is a sin, can't keep the envelopes your letters come in. Can't say for sure, darling just what I can write, so I'll call this u letter nnd close with 'good night'." Red Cross Workers Get Plenty Attention From U. S. Soldiers (Editor's Note — To find out what the Red Cross is doing in Africa, the Associated Press asked Red Cross worKev Rita Hutni of Seattle, Wash., now in North Africa, to describe her impression of Red Cross work since she arrived with one of the first contingents of women workers.) Cross headquarters is home. It's n frequent sight to see a busload eel docks to the rear.

Wo were so busy staring at the curiously mixed population that for a moment we did not realize that we were being stared at ourselves. Then American soldiers rushed up: "Say, arc you really an American girl? Boy, oh boy! A gal who can speak English." "Look, would you mind just talking to us? IT's been months since we've talked with a gal from home." It was like that when we ar rived in January and it's been that way ever since. We came to operate club - mo biles for the Red Cross, to carry canteen supplies, recreation equip mcnt and programs to soldiers at the African front. Nino of us represented all sections of the Unitec States, including Jeanne Luther o" Cimarron, Kansas. We arrived at Oran in time to the opening of three new Red Cros: clubs. In addition to the jam packed information center, once an auto showroom, were the new Empire club, complete with a theatre, lounge rooms and a library, the nurses' club and a recreation center tor officers. After a short time, field supervisors assigned us to Red Cross centers. Jean Luther stayed in Oran •,! r Washington By JACK STINNETT Wide World Features Writer . Washington — Will Nazi bombs iall on the U. S. A.? German threats of reprisals for the bomb- Dig of Berlin have revived that old controversy here in Washinton. The fact that these threats specifically mentioned East Coast cities jn the United States (Boston, New York and Washington) caused OCD Director James M. Ladies to caution civilians to hop to the business of preparing for any eventualities As for the air experts, there are some differcences of opinion as to the probability of Nazi air raids but those differences are a good deal less than a few months ago •What could Germany gain b bombing the United States? (1). A terrific morale weapon. Pictures o burning Americancities carried in the Nazi press would give the German people a feeling that "isolated" America also was catching it. That would answer their demands tor reprisals, and convince them that Nazi air power is capable of striking back. (2). A raid would cause a clamor here to keep more interceptor and lighter planes at home, thus relieving some of our pressure in the air on the British, African and Pacific fronts. It might also force diversion of anti - aircraft v/eapons from vital theaters of war. Those are powerful arguments in favor of the probability of longe- rajige Nazi bombings. Furthermore, such long - range bombings, no longer need be classified as "suicide missions, for global war maps show that round trips with heavy bomb loads couid be made to the east coast and even to mid- western cities. cable some money to my wife!" That's what Private Bill, whose last name must remain anonymous in this story, felt like shouting when the American Red Cross flashed news to him "Somewhere in the South Pacific" that he was the father of twins. But a fellow can't ask his top ick to hold his gun for him, even in the face of such eventful news. He must keep on fighting, even hough it's difficult to remember he enemy over the lull, knowing lis own family is having a tough >att!e back home trying to make ends meet. For a while, Private Bill thought of going "over the hill" and fight- ng his way back to his base where ic could make arrangements to increase the allotment to his wife, rlowever, that was out of the question. Finally Private Bill did what many another soldier, sailor and marine has done. He went to the Red Cross field director attached to his unit—the man whose job it is to look after the serviceman's needs, to relieve his mind of worries that impair his efficiency as a soldier. Soon the field director had the wheels turning for a two-way flow of communication with the Red Cross home service worker in Private Bill's home town. Thousands of miles away, the home service worker visited Private Bill's wife to offer financial assistance and medical care until her husband's increased pay allotment arrived. Word was sent back to Private Bill that the Red Cross was providing for his family — that •mother and twins are doing fine." Typical of the service the Red this story of Private Bill. Last year the Red Cross, through its field and home service workers, aided 1,500,000 servicemen and their families. Many more will be helped this year, but the extent of that aid depends on the support given the Red Cross 1943 War Fund for $125,000,000. What does that he7p mean to the serviceman? Well, here's what Private Bill said when he was told what the Red Cross'had done for him: "So that is what Vne Red Cross dollar does? I never dreamed it could be stretched around the world!" County Milk Price Ceilings Are Announced Retail ceiling prices for milk have been fixed by the Office of Price Administration at 14V4c a quart at Hope, an increase of IVic it was announced today by Chairman T. S. McDavitt of the Hempstead County war price and rationing board. Wholesale price at Hope is \2Vzc per quart. The new price order ties producer prices to retail ceilings, allowing producers to receive $3.55 per hundred-weight for 4 per cent butterfat content milk at Hope. Distributors also may pay the highest price they paid producers in January. In the rest of Hempstead County the retail ceiling price is 13c a quart retail and lie wholesale.

It also is headquarters for the Red Cross activities along the entire African front. At the information desk, Kay Parsons, a brunette from Toledo, Ohio, was besieged by soldiers asking questions. The men wanted rides back to their bivouacs or Information on theatres, restaurants and locations of army centers throughout town. They came to inquire about sleeping accommodations or to leave messages for friends. The thing that impressed me most was their desire of men each carrying n towel nnd soap draw up in front of the building. They've come to the only place in town where they cnn get an American shower. They usually arrange to slay for a snack-bar meal and well they might. William Kiel of Milwaukee, club director, serves 1,800 icn twice a day in the largcsnack- ar restaurant on the third floor.

Five new club - mobiles go into' action this week at the front, each equipped with doughnut and coffee machines. More than 200 Red Cross workers now arc carrying on the club, field, hospital and civilian relief program over North Africa.

Tons of equipment — the largest Red Cross shipment reaching Africa — recently arrived at Allied ports. It included hundreds of cases of phonograph records, radios, books, 1,000,000 packages of cigarettes and 1,000,000 razor blades. One of my greatest thrills came at the broadcast by General Eisenhower to the states on the eve of the red cross war fund drive. After stressing the tremendous need for the Red Cross program the general turned to me and said: "This is H great program. We've got to keep it going."

Pretty little Luise Rainer. ! She's been away too long — five years — but now she's back, starring for Director Frank Tuttle in a rnovie about the Czechosvolkaian underground, "Hostages." It's an emotional thriller, with Luise in the kind of role that won her two academy awards in her three years here before. If you saw "The Great Ziegfeld" or "The Good Earth" — or even some of the pretty awful later pictures that drove her away from M-GM and Hollywood — you'll remember Luise. The small, dark one with the large dark eyes, the wistful heartshaped face, and the haunting --luality that was part gamin but mostly pure soul.
