Opportunity for Major Allied Victory, "Ike" Tells Forces in France (Continued from page 1) speedy action. I make my present appeal to you more urgent than ever before. "I request every airman to make it his direct responsibility that the enemy is blasted unceasingly by day and by night, is denied safety In right or in flight. "I request every sailor to make sure that no part of hostile forces can either escape or be reinforced hy sea. and that our comrades on laud want nothing that guns and ships and ship's companies can bring to them. "I request every Boldier go for-fard to his assigned objective with determination that the enemy can survive only through surrender. Let no foot of ground once gained be relinquished. Let no single German escape through a line once established. "With all of us resolutely performing our Bpeclal tasks, we can make this week a momentous one in the history of this war, a brilliant and fruitful week for us, a fateful one for the ambitions of Nazi tyrants." Printers Ink Salvaged One type of paint can be made out of waste ink scraped from printing presses, says "Witcombings." (Continued troot high as J 35 a week by use of federal as well as state fundB planned to renew their fight In the house. Defeat was forecast, however, since the house has shown an even stronger tendency to protect rights of states than has the senate. Meantime, congress had a warning from Sen. Walter F. George (D), Ga.. chairman of the senate finance committee, that it cannot reduce taxes In the postwar era if It votes "runaway expenditures." "The joint congressional tax committee and the treasury are making a study of reduction of taxes in the postwar period, but it is doubtful if little more can be done than to settle on a policy before Germany is defeated," said George. Postwar Budget Untr "Reduction of taxation depends on the sixe of the budget. There is strong likelihood of a postwar budget of 118.500.000.000 to $20 billions, and unforeseen expenditures might raise it to $22 billions. "The sixe of the army and navy, cost of I'KKKA and other agencies will have much to do with determining the sixe of the budget. "It is undoubtedly true that congress will strive to reduce taxes, especially those which act as a brake on production or business. inane are taxes particularly like the 95 per cent excess profits tax." Congress also planned to speed action on surplus property disposal legislation. The bouse is scheduled to consider a bill tomorrow, wniie the senate military affairs committee will seek to whip a measure into shape during the week. Emergency lioeiHlation Near Democratic leaders were expected to seek quick action on emergency postwar legislation, and then postpone other major action until after the election. A major question of policy to be settled In legislation on disposition of surplus war property Is whether to "lock it up" for a period of years so as not to Interfere with business, or whether to make it available to the people and put the proceeds in the federal treasury to help cut the war debt. Bathtub Nuisance A nuisance is the crack around the edge of the bathtub. This is caused when the tub settles away from the plaster. After cleaning the crack, fill with a plastic strip manufactured for this purpose or pack with rock wool and finish with prepared cement, plastic wood or putty. lUGHT VgAR-OLD FtU-iMeK.

From cuts made in certain trees, the natives learned, dripped a milky fluid that would harden when exposed to sunlight or to the smoke of their fires. By pouring the fluid over mo.ds they contrived to shape crude jars and shoes. They discovered that articles of clothing coated with the milky mass were waterproof, that balls made of it would bounce. interesting Social Mews Everyday hflMR5fiMIN"A(OSSBO'vt)U feONC MWIUTC.SHERIFpl I'M BOSS OF WE " I C -tOHE AIMW' TER Vl IM " I ty- REREWHHMJSy 16 AS INNO- N 7TBIPL6BAS-Y HANDS ID R0UNd aTOPLE-BAB-Y NOWJWONO MAN0FMV BANCH I ( HINDER JUSTICE.MARM-!
