Room service, linen napkins and fresh sheets nightly were abolished In one full swoop, and guests were limited lo one face towel and one balh lowel daily in a move lo conserve manpower and keep Philadelphia from being declared a critical labor shortage area. The "blow" fell equally on Ihe war brought transient population, said by the hotel men to have Increased 00 per cent In the past year, and on silver-haired dowagers who have made their home! in the more exclusive hostelries as long as the oldesl desk clerks can remember. One-day laundry service went by the board and restaurant hours were slashed to a minimum in other provision of an agreement with the War Manpower Commission whereby the institulions were classed as locally needed." This classificalion, said Rudolf F, Vogeler, WMC area director, means that employes of the affected establishments may not be hired by "csscnlial" employers wilhout a certificate of availability, or by less "essential" employers al higher wages under any circumstances. The agreement also provides that women assumed the duties of elevator operators, auditors, room clerks and "some heavy work usually done by men" and that physically handicapped men be employed in such jobs as freight elevator operator and night clerk.

This Unlucky Pilot Seems to Be Lucky Evansville, Ind., June 15 (#•) It's getting so the cold chills creep over Mrs. Mary C. Wiener every time the postman starls up her walk. '• She's Ihe mother of Aviation Cadet Hugo Wiener, who fell out of an airplane into a pasture where a snorting bull was awaiting him, and three nights laler walked through a plate - glass door. Mrs. Wiener says Hugo's last letter told of an attack and robbery by three youths whom he identified as members of a Loss Angeles zool-suit gang. He told of other adventures. Three months ago, Mrs. Wiener says, when Hugo was about ready to solo, his instructor took him up and surprised him with a sharp dive. Hugo's safely belt wasn't fastened and he tumbled out of the plane. Fortunately, avaiation cadets wear parachutes and fortunately they open when they're supposed to. Cadet Wiener, who is stationed it Fresno, Calif., wrote his mother hat the shock of falling out of the jlane was shocked out of him by ooking up, when he had landed safely, to find himself facc-to-face with what looked like an unsocial bull. I always heard," the letter said, "that if you walk toward a bull he will not atlack you. So I summoned up my courage and walked toward that one. Sure enough, he hesitated, turned around and walked off." Three nights later an "alert" was sounded, a blackout followed, and Cadet Wiener was in a building with a "plate glass door. He thought there was no door there. He wrote his mother that the scratches weren't as painful as the $20 damages ho had to pay. Not all of Cadet Wiener's mishaps arc extra-curricular. On duty at a gun post at Pearl Harbor, Hugo was wounded. He refused to leave his post, and later received the Purple Heart award. with ihis souvenir. "No go" said Cain. "What else you got, Ihen." "All I have is my pup lent." "OK, I'll take a mortage on that" said Rogers. He duly drew Up the mortage and handed over 25 francs to Cain, leaving him probably the only soldier in the United Stales Army facing possible foreclosure on his ,pup tent home. "I'll appeal it to the U. S. Supreme Court if he tries to get an eviction order," Cain said. "Business is business," grinned Rogers. One enterprising soldier at an African air base took his own heat relief measures. Sweltering under the olive drab helmet, Sgt Erland Moltke decided lo take a tip from Benjamin Franklin and painted it while. "It keeps the sun away and makes you a lot cooler," said Moltke, a Danish namesake but no relative of the famous German generals. "You can put my white helmet side by side in the sun wilh a green helmet and feel the difference with your hand, the green helmet gets a lot hotter.

From the eastern Mediterranean bases of the Middle East Air Command long - range fighters of the RAF attacked an enemy schooner in tilt Aegean yesterday, sc.i-.r.'ng many hits and leaving tl.e vesrol smoking amidships, the'Cain war bulletin said today. From the middle East big American Liberators also soared out on Sunday for daylgiht attacks on two major Sicilian air bases — at Catania and Gerbini— while the daylight bombers from the North African command were taking their first Sunday off in weeks. The Allied forces are consolidating their positions on three captured Mediterranean outposts — Panlelleria, Lampedusa, and Linosa. silences on submarine warfare, the Navy said yesterday Its undersea forces had sunk a destroyer and 11 other Japanese ships, mostly cargo vessels, probably sank an additional craft and damaged three more. In another grafic disclosure, the Navy told how one of its submarines slugged it out with a Japanese sumbersible on the surface and sank it. These fresh triumphs cushioned and avenged—loss of the submarines Amberjack and Grampus which the Navy said last weekend were missing with their crews and presumed sunk. Navy announcements now list a total of 256 Japanese vessels as victims of submarines since the Pearl Harbor atlack. Communi- ques noted 181 sunk, 47 damaged and 28 probably sunk. Following traditional policy, they are issued at long intervals and for security reasons, contain few details, especially as to location of allacks. Some of the U. S. submarines have been known however to tta've prowled within sight of the JapS\ nese mainland. RSSH Mrs. Dortohy Ridenour Day Oyster Bay, N. Y., June 15 — (If) —Mrs. Dorothy Ridenour Day, 39, social rcgisterite wife of H. Mason, financier and broker. One tail gunner in a B-2G Marauder bomber has painted this cryptic invitation to enemy fighters above the muzzle of his .50 calibre gun: "Shoot-you're faded." Dominica was called Sunday island by Columbus because he sighted on that day in 1493. A man named Goldstein got a job as conductor on the Spring Street trolley line which averages $9 to $10 per day in fares. Fifty times he has flown his Flying Fortress into combat in the Norlh Africa^ theater and now he had at hand the reward to which all flyers look forward hopefully— a trip home. But before leaving he wanted to show his appreciation lo his ground crew and his flight crew. He drove the men into the nearest French lownand bought them the best dinner at the best restaurant he could find. The wine flowed freely and they had a grand time recalling their months of adventure together. When the last plate and bottle were empty the crew went home singing hilariously. The pilot captain, standing suddenly lonesome at Ihe entrance to his hotel, watched as the car disappeared into Ihe night. "I oughl to be glad at going home." He said, "I've wanted this leave and now that I've got it I feel like a heel — leaving a bunch of guys like that behind. We'll probably all never be together again in one gang." Then he brightened up. "Well, maybe when my leave is over I'll be assigned to the Pacific "And one of mine," said Isadore Cohen, "was present at the signing of the Ton Commandments.", Knox Promises. (Continued From Page One) 111 submarines built and 173 being built, according to the last Naval figures made public. Asked about the enemy's submarine campaign against American and Allied shipping in the Atlantic, Kriox told reporters that it is "in one of those lows," characteristic al times of Nazi sub strategy and lha't "how long that will last nobody knows." But, he said, the campaign against Nazi U-boats has been going along for some time "in a very satisfactory way both in number of ships not sunk and in I the excess of building over losses." The secretary declared that 20 destroyer escort vessesle the Navy's number one anli - submarine lype of craft, are expected to be completed this month and turned over to the fleet lor r.hake- down cruises. Knox emphasized that in his opinion the campaign against enemy submarines "won't be won until the war .is uvwr " "Its in the nature of things," he explained, "that the sinkings will continue right up to the last, but we ought to and sxpect to reduce those to a point where losses will be negligible.'" He said that many fictors were responsible for iho present improved situation in the Atlantic, among them an increase in the number of ships and planes available to fight U-boats, improvement in anti-sub tactics, and the bombings of U-boat bases on the northern European coast, 'including also interruptions to submarines voyaging to and from their bases.

I remembered about the gun. The first summer after Michael's death Walter had been nervous about Margaret and me staying alone .in the big house at night, and he had insisted that I have a revolver for protection. But I had been more afraid of the gun than I had of prowlers, so I put it far back in one of the drawers of my writing desk. I started toward the desk by the windows, before I realized that the gun wouldn't be there. It was in my own room—the turquoise room. So I got into bed and turned off the light. But remembering about the gun had started the whole hideous evening revolving in my mind—my walk to Mattison's cottage, my scare ill the woods (how far away and unreal that seemed now), Shaw badgering Connie into a terrified confession by showing her the heel she md lost in the ravine and the note from Derek. Suddenly I sat straight up in bed. What a blind fool I had been. That note—it hadn't been sent to Connie at all! That's how it happened that lay awake until the black velvet squares of the windows turned gray and the birds began to cheep boldly with the brightening day. I fell asleep then from sheer exhaustion, and it was broad daylight when I awoke. I got up and slipped on a brilliant Chinese robe, a favorite oi mine with its wide sleeves lined with scarlet silk, and went down the hall to the turquoise room- Connie's for the lime being. The door was ajar and the room was empty. I went over to the desk and pulled open all the drawers and searched it thoroughly. The gun wasn't there! T)EREK'S funeral was set for that afternoon, and just after breakfast Shaw phoned saying that the coroner's inquest was to be held at 10:30 that morning in Middleton, and lhat Connie and I would have to be there. So I turned the final arrangements for the funeral over to Walter and he took the roadster and drove into Listen to the undertaker's. John drove Connie and me to Middleton in the big car, and Kathy went along for moral support, Connie and I were called as the Irst witnesses. We were sworn in ind had to tell exactly how and vhere we found Derek's body. There were no cross-questions, It wasn't much of an ordeal. Then Chief Deputy Shaw took he stand. He began with my elephone call to the sheriff's office, gave the time the call came n, proceeded briskly to tell of his arrival at Kraiktower, his inspec- .ion of the body, and ended with brief summation of our statements to him which fixed the probable time of the crime. Next he produced some photographs ol' the body and the cave jnd showed them to the coroner Also the bullet which had been taken from Derek's body! Shaw said it was a bullet from a .38 that the gun from which it had been fired had not yet been found The coroner then asked him i: that was all, and he said it was I know I gasped. He hadn't mentioned the heel from Connie's slipper that had Derek's body, Derek. The autopsy been found undei or the note from surgeon was the next witness called. He describee the bullet wound in technica terms which simmered down to the fact that one bullet had been fired into Derek's chest and' hai pierced his heart. Death, he said had bean instantaneous. The doctor's closing statemen carried me back to that momen in the ravine when I had knel beside Derek's body and felt hi varm cheek and wondered at the urprised look on his dead face. Death had not only been quick, I lought, it had been unexpected, t had come from the hand of omeone in whom he had never uspected danger. Black horror gain rolled over my mind, I got a grip on myself and tried o fasten my attention on the resent proceedings in that musty, li-ventilated court house ante- oom. The coroner was calling or Margaret Grady to take the tand. Deputy Shaw got to his feet again. He explained that he hadn't served Mrs. Grady, the grandmother of the dead man, vith a summons to appear, because she was in a state of col- apse. The coroner and the sheriff and the assistant prosecutor conferred, and then the coroner said that the inquest would adjourned until such time as Vlargaret Grady could be present to answer questions. * * * TJEREK'S father and stepmother had arrived when we got home. They were up in Margaret's room. I went up to see them. Will Grady is still a handsome man despite his grizzling hair. Derek got his looks from him. Will rose to his feet and shook hands with me and introduced me to his wife. She was big, blond, flashy. And her eyes werg set too close together. She murmured a conventional acknowledgment, and her eyes went over me jealously from patent pumps to Revlon nail polish, not missing the suit by Schiaparelli or the diamond rings. Without lifting a finger I had made an enemy. I asked Will if he and his wife would like to stay a day or two with Margaret. I said we could put tham up in the tower. v "Thank ye, Mrs. Kraik," Wi^ said. His wife sniffed. A born troublemaker if ever I saw one.
