By CHANDLER DIEHL BO Oo Janeiro — (/P) — Brazil and its handsome capital — once one of the gay spots nf the world — are feeling the pinch of war. Merchant ships, diverted to military duties, have little- space for (he many necessities which Brn- xil's yoiini; industry cannot supply. So food, clothing and transportation costs have risen and the good old days have gone. Privali; automobiles virtua- disappcared almost year ago ast Times Today srge Ann ornery Rutherford and trolleys and buses have been hopelessly jammed. Taxes have pone up and military iduction is taking men rapidly s the Army and Navy expand, lorhaps lo fisht on a foreign front. Even Ihe carnival, a famous Tiin .llraclion, was makeshift this 'ear. In addition, the war has hit close o home, for Axis submarines have sunk mure than a score of ships ind cosl Brazil's merchant Marine nindreds of lives. Most serious is the loss of imported petroleum products, Ihe chief source of power for faclor- es, coastwise shipping and land transportation. Only a few essential drivers arc allowed gasoline liberally diluted with alochol and taxis in Bo t;cl only enough 'for 1G miles a day. Many vehicles have been converted to charcoal and factories receive fuel on a priorities basis. National coal, exploitation of whch is only beginning, is being used more frequently. Some factories and ships arc even burning wood shavings from Brazil's vast and rich forests. The strain on transportation has made food scarcer and ropro expensive and the Brazilian, a great cater uC meat and rice, is paying twice as much for some of his staples as before the war. The price of imported fresh fruits in Rio has Rone so high that news- apcrs have begun inquiries. The government's answer has jccn to order a 25 per cent in reasc in minimum salaries, which aiscd some workers from aboui 12 lo $15 but failed to help those ibovc these levels. Lack of new construction has caused a housing shortage am •cuts have gone up. Although Brazil manufacture enough cotton for export, home manufactured clothing has risen ii price from 10 to 20 per cent. Newspapers have cut columns Lype sizes and number of page in the struggle lo keep up wilh dc dining newsprint slocks. But th war may see a marked develop mcnt in home manufactured news print — gain from the forests of the interior. So lhal while Brazilians suffer from sncaricities and rising prices, home industries arc gelling a boost that might have come much slower in normal times. It would be greater were it not for the machine lools and raw materials needed from abroad. The all - important question of proiritics for imports are handled by Ihe export - import division of the bank of Brazil, working with the requirements section of the United States embassy which rcg- Nazis Prepare for Defensive Summer War Stockholm, May 27 f/P) — Dispatches from Berlin asserted today Germany is preparing for summer defensive warfare while Nazi military leaders hope that no large - scale Allied offensive will start until they can replace the losses in men and material suffered in the shattering defeats in the Donets Basin, al Stalingrad and in Tunisia. While there is * talk in Berlin aboul a Russian summer offensive between Kursk and the Crimea, a correspondent of the Slockholms Tidninghcn said German polilical circle expressed belief Ihere would be no major action for at least a month. Other quarters, he said, held the view Ihcrc would be considerable "sounding out" offensive preparations Ihroughoul the summer but that there would be no major warfare. Nazi military circles, acknowledging the big gaps caused by the Russian and North African defeats, were represented as indicating that Hitler would not launch any offensive. It was said they hoped intensified war production and total manpower mobilization would enable them to return the German fighting machine to full strength before any Allied attacks ere launched. Das Schwarzc Korps, weekly or- an of the elite guard, said, how- ver, that the Allies have made many preparations for invasion nd that Germany must be prepared lo go on the defensive. Neutral circles in Berlin were luolcd by the Stockholms Tidning- ien as saying that Premier Stalin vas riol going to begin the offcn- ivc first because, they asscrlcd ic was not sure whether the Amer- can and British forces were ready Bye Bye, Niki r Little Joanne Greenwood of Chicago is merely bidding an affectionate farewell to her Army-joining dog Niki, although it looks like she is putting her head in the husky's mouth circus-style.

Ronald Vincent, 21, was a gunner with the British army in the Western Desert. One day an Italian hand grenade exploded nearby. Vincent lost both arms and his sight. Discharged from the hospital. Vincent, equipped with artificial arms, enrolled in a Capetown training school. A South African firm devised a typewriter with a keyboard of perforated metal. With small wooden pegs attached to his artificial wrists, Vincent, after memorizing the keyboard, punched out the letters by inserting the pegs in the proper holes. After many tedious weeks of study and practice he became an excellent typist. He has just finished his first detective thriller—a story of spies at work in Brazil. Now he is en- route to England for further study.

Then she was jerked and jolted almost insensate. Her head was thrown back and she saw the parachute billow out, then momentarily collapse, then billow out again. She wondered it she were visible in the moonlight. The moon was very low now, and it did not light up the ocean or the island quite as it had several hours before. The fantastically exciting and active night was nearing an end. Beth wondered if there would be a dawn for her. Down, down she went. She heard no noise—only the rush of air past her head. She felt cold almost numb. The island was rushing up a her very fast. It was a miracle that Brit had found it, and i would be more of a miracle i she landed on it safely. * * * CHE could not decide what por tion she was about to hit. Th contours were deceptive fron aloft. She had expected to be abl to recognize the cove and In headquarters area, but she coul< not. She thought she was only a fev feet above the island now. Odd how at first her progress ha seemed go fast, then so slow, au ow so fast again! The ground as coming toward her in a ter- fic rush of shadowy vegetation. She tried to look at her watch, ut could not see the dial. She ishcd she had looked before she umped—it would be something 0 be able to know just how fast me was going. Brit could not ave more than an hour's gasoline eft. Beth thought she heard a shout rom below, then decided it was icr imagination. Then she hit. She struck a trectop first— 1 palm—and the points of the ronds jabbed into her flesh.

If she did attract attention, she might be shot immediately. Beth arose and tried to walk, and sank back down again immediately. The hurt ankle would not bear her weight. Beth removed her shoe, tore a length of cloth from her skirt, and wrapped it around the ankle. The pressure of the wrapping braced the ankle and somewhat relieved the pain. She heard noises in the jungle. She remembered that Brit had told her there were all sorts of tropical animals in that jungle— things that crept and things that crawled, and other things full of venom and poison. She called out. "Help!" Then, not because she was frightened— for her mind was too full of Brit's predicament for fright to enter— she screamed. She hoped that a scream might carry farther than a simple outcry. Her shout unnerved her, for it was answered by a thousand other JEAN MERRILL: drapes veil. By Alicia Hart NEA Staff Writer | Your Easter bonnet may have been the prettiest in the parade, but ils about time to be checking up on its current condition. Veiling is f la tiering and alluring only so long as it is fresh and crisp. Nothing spoils the effect of a new hair-do and expert make-up so surely as a lot of bo-draggled veiling hanging limply aboul your face. Often, all it needs is a bit of pressing. But, if you've been caught in the rain a couple of times, try reviving it as does Jean Merrill singing star of Broadway's operetta hit ••Rosalinda," by dipping it in a thin solution of sugar and water and pressng it dry with a moderately warm iron. Incidentally, if your face is long and slim, drape the veiling loosely about your face, crossing it under the chin and throwing the ends back over Ihe shoulders. II will make a mosl flattering frame for your face and give it a much rounder appearance. Besides, it won't tickle your nose, tangle your eyelashes nor smudge your lipstick. Children's Dresses The parachute struggled against the weight of her body and the entanglement of the branches as :hc breeze caught it and opened it full for one last sail, then it collapsed over a low tree-top. Beth was drugged against the bole of a stubby palm. The wind was knocked out of her and she lay there for several minutes, semiconscious. When Beth fully regained her senses, it seemed that hours had passed. Nothing appeared real. With difficulty, she fixed her mind on her whereabouts and on her experiences during die night. Wlv.it brought reality to mind first was a pain in her ankle. Beth disengaged herself from the parachute. Where she was— except that presumably she was on the right island, and the correctness of that presumption depended completely on the correct- screams. She could not decide whether she had startled all sorts of jungle denizens, or whether there were that many echoes. She called "Help!" again. It was to no avail. She must make headway. She wished she could hear Brit's plane motors. She needed reassurance that her mission still had a purpose. But if he had been that close, he would have drawn fire. As though to give terror to her thoughts, she heard the unmistakable voice of an antiaircraft gun far down the island, barking viciously at a target aloft. She knew how excellent was the marksmanship of those American Coast Artillerymen. Her heart sank. Then she heard another noise. It was of something crawling a levy paces away in the impenetrable jungle. (To Be Cputiuuedl) WANT TO SWAP? Use The Classified . . .
