C., Jan. 15.— Looks like restaurant and fountain owners are due lor another cost jolt. Consumer pbcketbobks are'about to take another beating too. This time i't's ice cream, and it's not due to inflation. ' It's all happening at hearings being conducted-here by the federal security agency (pure^fobd.and drug administration), 'with Edward E. Turkel as presiding officer. The Ice Cream Manufacturers association has come up with a proposal for a new ice milk standard. They want to confine it to ~ 3.5 per cent .maximum butterfat,. among.. other restrictions. The administration wants to •abolish any product that even looks like ice cream that. is under the present 12' per cent minimum for ice cream. Up inarms WORLD Awmw •Zixufe Ifori.

FIOTHOW This sounds pretty harmless, but the owners and nianufacturers of the tyjJe of freezer you see turning •out those popular. $6ft : frbzen products in your neighborhood, restaii- rant,. fountain or ice creain stoVe are up in arms. They look at it this way. A', major percentage, of the soft s you buy is this t same. ice rhilk:. There .is rib arugnirat about how :^hblesorrile tne p'rbduct is, or how popular. The; trouble is, that to be at its best, these soft fre'shiyfrozen.pro- ducts niust have_ more butterfiat the, ice cream manulactarers want., and le"ss..,tha.h .the of precious. fantterfat specified for hard,ice cream by the administration. That leaves the soft,products out in the cold. Maybe, that.-.Is the idei because .sales of the ; .spit ..product have been scaring while hard ice cream sales are in. a slump. If the new' soft products would succumb to the attack, there is no choice but to go to the much higher cost ice. cream. Soft Cream Squelched ' This latter point, the soft ice cream people feel, is the crux of the matter. Hard ice cream sales have been going down steadily for the past three years; soft product sales have been going up till they have reached the 120,000,000 gallon per year mark. Now this upstart is to be squelched by making it impossible for^it to be served at about 6 per cent butterfat, the type that consumers seem to prefer. Thousands of small businesses have been built up on this competitive situation between soft and hard ice cream. The proposed regulation would make it a lot easier for the big outfits to push them back. And everybody knows what happens to prices when competition is reduced. Dairy farmers have a-stake in this too. Experts generally agree that lost hard ice cream sales are due to higher prices. If those lost sales can't go to. right-from-the-freezer dairy products, they'll. go to soft drinks and other competitors of dairy products, and. the farmer loses. Protecting Public , The .administration and the ic'e cream coinpaniejS .maintain they are protecting the public; that .consumers buy these soft' product's Hunking they are buying high 'butter-fat McFADDEN DANCE STUDIO Ballroom Dancing Of All Types Next to TJ-Drivie on 3rd Har. 681 Alaska Legislature Details Explained (Continued From Page 1) As the evening went on, however,, and 'the band played, the hymns rolled forth and the repenters told; their stories and made their pledges of better things, Johnson got into •the. spirit ,_ of the affair. Before he quite, knew how it happened -he found himself before the, gathering, recounting his own_mariy shortcomings.. It was a long story and a black one .and he stood at. last in utter dejection, appalled at the lack, of a single redeeming feature in a misspent life:' Then the trace ..of a smile -lifted his .blotched arid stubbled jowls and a flicker of light, came to his bloodshot eyes., He said: "Boys, I was a bad one; yes, xvorse than bad. "But boys, bad as T been; .there .is' one bad.thing_ ; I..never.yet done. Never have I been a dance hall- girl!" - FRANcies Lack of space prevents a census .of the many Johnsons of Alaska, but a few who have left some special mark upon the history of the country come readily to mind: Charles S. Johnson was District judge back in the days when the whole of Alaska was one-, district, and Adam Johnson,,a few years later, was crier in the District court at Nome. "Frozen-Foot". Johnson Jed prohibition officers many a. merry chase around Juneaii in the dry years and "re'ceiyed special attention one fine Saturday aftierhoon when/ the still tilew lip in his house on Gastin'eau avenue. Jeff Johnson used to cook up on Anvii creek; Peter H. Johnson was captain oh a steamboat downriver from Whitehorse; Don Johnson.ran the little steamier Heetwing out of Teller and "Laughing" Johnson was skipper on vessels of the Seattle- Alaska run; Johnson Old Man, of'the Cape Fox tribe, gave the early miners in the TTnuk river country more than a .little trouble, and Sam Johnson was an Indian policeman. Totem Pole Johnson "Moose" Johnson was well known from Hurricane gulch to Fairbanks; John Johnson and his fine dogs won the Nome sweepstakes: J. H. Johnson was deputy marshal at Koyukuk, and "Totem Pole" Johnson got his nickname by reason of fits that completely immobilized him for as much as an hour at a time. A few of the other notables include "Crooked--Nose"' Johnson, "Stampede" Johnson, "Shoemaker" Jchnson, "Gee-Pole" Johnson and "Hardpan" Johnson. Oh, yes, and there was Jack Johnson, whose real name was neither Jack nor Johnson. And let us not forget the Johnson bar, a great implement that, in this day of self-starters and multi-cylindered diesels, is almost a museum piece. This is an excerpt from..a letter. An Alaskan, 'a real Aiaskan,. a: man who was born arid raised in the Territory, a man who married here ''and; whose children were born here, wrote this letter.. It made us think. See how you feel about it. ' ' ' .''"As to the general condition of Alaska, I cannot see that it is at all good. My feeling/about it is;.-in good part,.personal, "of course, and a little hard to explain. _. .'"When. you. iiead _ southward. in a couple of weeks.... I know that Alaska and its problems will always be somewhat in your.mind, .but it' is bound to be a sort of background thing, gradually becoming hazier arid less incisive. "For me .Alaska will always be something else, mainly, • I suppose because I was born here arid my children" were Born here arid it is home. "On the trip to Fairbanks lastjall I did not cover any .country, that I had not seen before, and. I did not learn much that I did riot already k n o w, but I saw ' all of pointed up more sharply than it had previously been.- : "As you are. probably well aware, there isn't a Hell* oi a lot for" an ordinary traveler to s'e'e in frying over Alaska, even in clear weather. For me there is a lot-to see, and I do not like most of what is there. "When we lift Sitka we flew high, heading for Ketchikan.

' Opponents of the new standards take a dim view of this stand. They would like to know how you mislead a consumer when you sell him a better product at a lower price. So another battle rages in Washington. Operators and manufacturers of restaurant and fountain freezers are setting.up headquarters at the Statler-hotel"here, to oppose what they label; "discrimination by monopolies against 'consumers and small business people." They are calling on the general public, as well as industry members, to support their battle to hold the cost line. Supporters are being asked to send letters arid cards to the r lce Milk Supporters committee, Hotel Statler, Washington, D. C. Fairbanks Lumber Supply BETTER BUILDING MATERIALS— . East 256 -' • P.O.

Peterson said. 'Visit Two Capitals The steamers. Alaska and Denali will.sail on successive Wednesdays arid the Aleutian and -Baranof on successive Fridays. •Passenger? making the round trip ori either Wednesday steamer will hive opportunity to visit two Alaska capitals—the present capital . of Juneau and the former capital, Sitka^ The Denali will also call at the yet/earlier capital of Kodiak.

"When you fly over Passage Point you can, if you know where to look and look closely, you can make out a row of stubs of old. piling, running out into the water. That used to be a dock and behind the dock were the bunkers that used to be filled with gypsum from the mine two or three miles up the hillside. Forty or 50 men used to work there—from 1906 until around 1933—the year around. "Farther down, at Tokeen and Calder and Deweyville are the concerns a time when they were were marble quarries.

"Down a little farther, on the shore of Kasaan Bay, are a few weatherworn shacks and some piles of rusty sheet iron. That is Hadley, where once there was a copper smelter. It is long sines gone, although there are yet eons of fine copper ore for the mining of it. Over the hill, where you can't quite see it, is the ghost of Sulzer, where another copper smelter belched smoke and a hundred men drew their pay regularly on Saturday nights. Now it is surrounded by the Hydaburg Indian Reservation and it is doubtful that the remaining ore will ever be touched.

Buster yelled to Bob to "Get that mule outa here!", but just then the two yearling bears ran in the door and sought shelter under the bunks. "You've got too many pets," Bob yelped . r But Buster grabbed his gun and ran outside to see what was wrong. And just in time; for there in the front yard was one of the biggest grizzlies either Bor or Buster had ever seen. He was about the size and shape of a Ford coupe. Bob fired his .375 Magnum and the bear slumped. But the shot frightened the cub : bears and one of them stepped on Stormy, who let out a loud bray and, kicked the table and stove to pieces.

The result is that scores of thousands of federal employees who put in heavy hours of overtime are sharply penalized in compensation,^ an indefensible situation from any* point of view. "Congress has recognized the validity of overtime compensation. It, now should act to remedy the serious defect in the law which renders it discriminatory and reduces its effectiveness for the very purpose for which it was established. "That action should be taken at this session of congress," the council concluded. Well, the Eagles have decided to run a special excursion train down to the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous. The train' is to leave on -Feb. 21 and return Feb. 26. On the special trip will be; the-Eagle hockey team, the basketball team, bowling team, curling team and a group .of • Fairbanks boxers. Delegates are also expected from Ladd and Eielson l air force bases. Whmg-Din? Trip This should be one big whins- ding of a trip. I know all the boys will be royally .welcomed at the southern town, and negotiations are under way to have the Anchorage-, it'es pay a return visit for our Winter Carnival. A verbal orchid should be extended to Clarence Cade, the Fairbanks yard clerk. Clarence is one of those individuals who'taibws his business and keeps things' going smoothly but doesn't usually come to the at- tention of the, public eye. When Cade conies to work he covers the Fairbanks yard with a good, accurate check. He then down and works rapidly and accurately, doing his job.so that the desired information and forms will be at the right -place at the right- time so that the program goes on as scheduled. A lot of people in this world are . like Clarence. They do a fine job keeping the cogs of industry turning while a lot of others ride the gravy train and take all the credit. It is heard via the grape vine that the service clubs of Anchorage are out-to. bring the Miss Alaska beauty pageant to Anchorage. Any'city that takes an interes^ in this affair aha tries to promote it to the utmost will be doing Alaska a lot of good.
