W. P. Glark. auditor of the Southwestern Bell Telephone company, testified that the company's exchange rcve- ruies in Hope barely paid the expenses of furnishing service between 1935 and 1942. After payin expenses and income taxes in the eight years, 5647 remained for the owners of the business, a return Of 7'100 of one per cent. The year 1942 was the worst of the eight. with a deficit of $8,092. "Seven years ago, an ordinance reducing telephone rates was passed by Hope's city council but was suspended by the Department on appeal of the company. Similar cases developed in six other Arkansas towns about the same time, and the Department consolidated the cases in a state-wide inquiry into telephone property and earnings. "Rates under the 193G ordinance would have produced even less revenue, and applying these rales the company's deficit for the eight years would have been $72,130 Clark testified.

"Prior to today's .hearing, conferences have been held by the department with officials of the seven Arkansas towns, including Hope, to review operating reports which the telephone company had filed each year since 1935 together with studies by the Department's staff. "H. VV. Shcpard, telephone company manager here, pointed out that the company is not asking for rate increases, but is hopeful that the seven-year litigation can be ended so that telephone people in Arkansas can devote their undivided attention to the vital job of furnishing the swift communication service so essential in these war days."

WHAT HAPPENED TO FLETCHER'S C ASTORIA After seven weeks of intensive work, laboratory researchers have discovered the reason why certain batches of Fletcher's Castoria caused nausea. AAethods of preventing a recur- ence of the trouble are now known and manufacture is being resumed. No Fletcher's Castoria has been made during this saven-week period, and at its beginning the makers issued a nationwide warning to consumers and retailers not to use or sell the product and to return all stocks for destruction. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration has been kept informed of all these developments. Q. What caused the trouble? A. The sugar content of Fletcher's Castoria was reduced to conserve sugar under wartime conditions. A year ago, Castoria was made with this reduced sugar content and was up to standard in svery respect. This year, in March, we again started production with reduced sugar. However, at that time a chemical change—harmless in itself— occurred in the characteristics of the water used in making Castoria. But this change, in combination with the reduced sugar, increased the degree and rate of normal fermentation. The more rapid fermentation retarded normal re-oxidation during the ageing process, resulting in a product which caused nausea. Q. Why didn't normal tests show that something was wrong? A. The changes which occurred were so elusive that they could not be detected by the regular testing procedures —• procedures which had kept Castoria a respected product for more than seventy-five years. In fact, even after the nauseating effect was discovered in actual use, it took weeks of laboratory research to identify the factors that were causing the trouble. Q. What are the makers doing to prevent a recurrence of the trouble? A. Now that the cause is known, procedures have been put in effect which will assure normal re-oxidation of the product. Additional safeguards have been set up. New laboratory controls have been installed. New biological and chemical tests will be applied to every batch of Fletcher's Castoria. Each bottle will be stamped with a plainly visible control number, in verification of these tests. Q. Is Fletcher's Castoria now on sale? A. No. Manufacture has been resumed, but because of the time required for manufacture and distribution it rnay be about two months before Castoria will again be on sale at your retailer's. When it is, you will be notified in your local newspaper. Q. Will the package be the same? A. No. The Fletcher's Castoria now being made will bear a distinctive green band. This green band is for your protection in case any old Castoria has not been returned. The Manufacturer of .Fletcher's Castoria Candini's Sore Arm Due to Get Well Soon RY SID FEEDER New York, June 24 iff) — Some lay Milo Candini's arm is going 0 get rid of its soreness — and hen il's really going lo be tough on American League batters. Not that it's any picnic now. because seven other clubs are find- ng out the Candy Kid is about as Tec with his base hits as your Butcher is with the top sirloin he doesn't have these days. At the moment the Washington Senators' bargain buy is riding along on a string of 49 2-3 innings in which he's gvion up exactly four earned runs — and that's really rationing on the Red points. He hasn't been defeated yet this year and his latest job was a six- hitter against the Yankees yesterday, for his seventh win. Yet as the major league's leading elbowcr walked to the locker room, you could tell it wasn't that easy. "Yep," he grimaced, rubbing his working wing, "It's still sore. 1 can feel it after a game like that. Oil, il's better than it was, but it hurts now." To which you might say, if it hurt him, think how it made the Yanks feel, especially since the Yanks practically g-avG him lo the Nats and now the Senators are only two games away in the American League parade, and the Yanks ar, about as consistent as i.he coffee in a one- •>m.
