OKtRl OKI'"" Mi V v - Farming Predominates About 80 per cent of the population of Jugoslavia normally engages in farming. Industrial activities play a comparatively minor role. Leading industries include timber, milling, tanning, cement, leather goods, chemicals, steel, brewing and sugar refining. Most of these were located in the northern provinces (chiefly Slovenia. Croatia-Slavonia and Bosnia). Dalmatia is the principal producer of cement. Crosby and Sinatra had better look out. Errol Flynn will croon a. song called "Cuatro Milpas" in "San Antonio." Moreover, he'll accompany himself on the guitar. The Earl Carroll birthday party was really something. But so far no beefs reported. All the lights went out for a while and people stumbled around in the dark. John Decker was just saved from walking into the swimming pool. Sweet Potato Flour Several young chemb in Mississippi looked sadly atId after field of surplus sweet potatoes left rotting in the ground. Then they put their heads together and produced an inexpensive sweet-potato flour that makes light, fluffy, golden-brown loaves and cakes. After testing the loaves the chemists announced that the new flour was a high-carbohydrate food, rich in vitamins. Parents of Peggy Ann Garner are bewailing the irony of things. Mrs. Garner left for New York to surprise her husband, Lt. William Garner, an intelligence officer at an eastern camp for Italian war prisoners.

Farmers, with an eye on the future prosperity of agriculture, are beginning to be concerned with the evidence that, when the war ends, we will be troubled again by huge surpluses of farm products. Obviously, the government guarantee on farm prices, for a limited period, will help tillers of the soil but it is perfectly plain that the government' cannot afford an unlimited guarantee of prices, regardless of surpluses on hand and the world price. It begins to look like some type of production control will be inevitable after the war unless the nation elects to open up foreign markets by accepting large imports of foreign goods and products. For the farmer this seems essential to full production but it is extremely doubtful if the program can be achieved. This brings us back to control of crops, based upon the voluntary action of farmers themselves. It does not mean that every farmer will endorse the program but that the vast majority of them, acting under existing legislation, will vote for intelligent regulation of production to fit the supply and demand situation. MEN FACE DEATH AND GOD. In a report to the War Department, the Rev. Dr. Daniel Poling, who toured the Pacific theater as an envoy of the President, assures American fathers and mothers that they "need have no fear that loved .pnes will forget their God". We doubt that American fathers and mothers require any assurance on this point but it is interesting to note that Dr. Poling finds that Army chaplains are "performing one of the greatest services of all times". We have always found it difficult to understand the fear of some Americans that our soldiers and sailors will drift away from God while engaged in the service of their country. Certainly, men who look death in the face daily are inclined to think of eternal verities.

From Morotai Island, in the Moluccas, comes the story of Joe Aiella, who fell 3,000 feet when his parachute failed to open, and escaped without a broken bone. There will be those to assert that a miracle saved the soldier. Others will explain that it was one of the odd chances that often occur in connection with probabilities. Some say the man was unconscious and relaxed when he hit the tree-tops and therefore not seriously hurt.

REYNOLDS closed tier eyes as she lay in bed, and did drop off into a little steep. When she opened them some time later she saw Dr. Banning standing over her. "How do you feel today, Mrs Reynolds?" he said quietly. She chuckled. "Remember the day I whizzed my chair down from the porch to the street? I want to do that again." "Splendid. Then you'll K ready for an operation if we find it necessary.' She stooped smiling, but her voice was steady. "I put myself in your hands." "That's very kind, but I won't trust myself. I'm old- I've asked a man to come down from New York, the very best there is for this sort of thing. If he is willing to go ahead, then w must follow him." She draw a deep breath. "Yes, we must follow. I know at my age there is so little chance of "We will only operate if there is every chano in your favor' Dr. Banning ta sharply. "Be clear on that gwtat. By the way, do you want Lara home when the doctor comes? He's coming by car from Wilmington." The old woman shook her head. "Don't trouble Laura. But I want Anne. I want her to go to the hospital with me when I'm operated upon." Anne came forward and took her hand. "I'll be with you all I can. but only a real nurse Is allowed in the hospital." "You're a real nurse to me," "And to me," added the doctor luietly. "I promise you Anne will oe right with you." "Then bring on your Bpeclal New York man." "He'll be here soon. Now I'm fco-ng to take Anne away from you for a little talk." "Is it something I can't hear? Don't be afraid to say anything." "It's about Anne herself." "Good. Tell her a funny story. She needs to forget me for a few minutes." Anne was curious as she followed Dr. Banning out onto the porch. A broad awning kept away the glare of the hot summer sun. The old doctor sat down and patted the chair beside him. She sat and waited while his eyes twinkled. "I've been meaning to have a talk with you, but I wasn't sure of myself. Now I am. I dare say lots of men have told you how pretty and sweet you are, but has anybody ever told you you were a humbug?" She was amused at the old-fashioned word. "What have I done?" "You've deceived us all. Naturally I guessed, but even I wasn't sure. Girls these days can fool d secret." (She was instantly cautious. "What secret?" "So that's it. You have more than one secret. Well I shouldn't be surprised. You know you are a mystery girl and always have been since you came here." "I don't see any mystery." He crossed his lean legs and patted a bony ankle. "I see more than you do, then. You know you were mighty clever with Mrs. Reynolds that day she fell and Laura thought it was a stroke. How did you know what to do7" Anne stared out across the wide street. "I told you my mother was very ill " His quick laugh cut iier short. "You did have good hospital training, didn't you? But I'm sure you were a splendid nurse." She faced him boldly. "Sorry, Dr. Banning, but I never was in a hospital." He grinned. "Not as a patient. But as a nurse." "You are mistaken. Dr. Banning.'' He shook his head. "So young, so pretty, and so deceitful. What are you going to say in a few minutes when Dr. Raynor comes?" "Dwight!" She gasped out the name, then clapped her hand over her mouth in dismay. The old doctor chuckled and grinned at her knowingly. "Yes, my girl. Dr. Dwight Raynor. I said I was going to get the biggest man I could. He refused when I wrote, but last night I had a long talk with him on the phone. I tried to interest him, so I told him about you." "No!" "Ah, but yes. I said we had a pretty nurse here from New York who had probably saved this old lady's life by her quick thinking. He was still saying no, no, no, when I told him the pretty nurse was named Anne Wilson. He gasped out 'Anne' Just the way you said "Dwight and said he'd come today. It wa3 a hunch. I believe in hunches. It's wonderful what magic there is in some names." Anne stood up slowly. "I I'm afraid you don't understand." "But I'd like to." He smiled up at her. "Would you like to tell me?" There isn't anything to teW "I see. Well, he told me to keep you here if I had to bang onto you." "I'm sorry, Dr. Banning. Under the circumstances I must go." "And leave an old woman who depends on you? I didn't think you were like that. In fact, I know you aren't Laura was hateful to you oh, I know about it, never fear but you came running when you were needed. It's your nature. And it's your duty, lou're a nurse.
