BUTTER, PORK Ref u gees at Fort Ontario Bear Marks of War: TO NEW LOW Little For Seen Hope Increased STOCKS FADEpn f Many Rochesterians in Group of 982 OBJECTIVE OF Supplies ajs that in butter, Butter supplies in wholesale houses here were no low yesterday that one manager declared that consumers "had better get used to substitutes." Distributors' representatives said .there is no hope in sight for in creased butter supplier, bilt there are plenty of indications that the situation will get worse steadily until next spring. Reason for the crowinsr shortage is the lack of production due to late season pas turage and the large amounts be- inz taken by the government, it was explained. Packers, meantime, said the pork hortage is "the worst in memory. Fresh hams and pork loins and chops were said to be almost an unknown quantity in packing houses and in markets. Few have smoked hams available. Bacon Scarce 'We haven't had a fresh ham In a long time," said a spokesman for one packing house. Iacon, which has been available in most markets throughout the war, also now is hard to get, a survey showed. In New York City, according to an Associated Press dispatch, butter is so scarce that it is being rationed two ounces to a customer In many stores. Other stores had no butter. Sales of margarine were aid to have increased 25 per cent In New York City. "We're allocatyig the little butter we receive on a percentage basis of the 1941 purchases to our custners," the manager of a larjre packing house said here yes torriav He added that he cannot understand "the reluctance of con sumers to use the substitutes such marearine." The food value just as good df-clared. A spokesman for one distributor hrr said butter receipt nt prea-rnt !. about 15 nrr cent of those nf two year Black "Mart" Blamed Even in the early days of ra tioning pork wac more plentiful than now, packers agreed. Black market sales of beef were held in directly responsible in part for the rrowine shortage of pork by one dealer. He said the government i unable tt set the amounts of the better beef it needs for the armed forces and so is taking the fresh pork and hams in larger quantities. Black market operators were reported to he paying over-ceiling prices for the better beef while the packing hoime are held to the OPA rrlce regulations. An other factor cited is the usual lull In pork receipts in the early fall. Relief from the pork shortage is rot expected for another month when the spring pigs begin coming to market. The branch here of one cf the largest western meat houses faid it was receiving only 30 per cent of its required hams. Good supplies of lamb and veal nd a "fair amount'! of utility beef were reported. Cops Claim Arrest Cleans Up Thefts Two burglaries were cleared up and police believed more would be, ma a result of the arrest early yesterday of three men on charges of third degree burglary and second degree grand larceny.

O'BRIEX With mingled emotions, nearly 1,000 refugees from war-torn Europe gaze over Lake Ontario and that part of America they can see from old Fort Ontario at Oswego. Some fretfully await the day they can return to their homes ns free people. Others think of Kurope only in terms of horror and never want to see it again. They are the 982 European refugees brought to Fort Ontario, Aug. a dv me war Ji.eioco.uon Aiiinori.y under ar American agreement with the United Nations. Anion; them are the kin of many Rocheeterians. City Agendo Help Rochester agencies and the branches of national organizations here are aiding in providing recreation, leisure time activity and religious activity for the refugees. Among those organizations is the Rochester branch of B'nai B'rith. Jewish organization. Thia country agreed to take care of 1,000 refugees freed from Italian concentration camps as a token of good faith. Other nations took a proportionate share and the balance of the homeless are cared for In camps operated by the Jnited Nations in the Mediterranean area. Each of the refugees bears some mark of the war, or of the horror of rampant Hitlerism in pre-war days. A few still are bedridd3n, others are broken in body or spirit. Typical of those eager to -eturn are Dr. and Mrs. Theodore Fuchs of vienna. "We pray for the day when we can return to beloved Vienna," Mrs. Fuchs declared fervently. Accused Hitlerites Dr. Fuchs. small in stature, with a pain-pinched face, and his wife, from whose eyes terror has not been completely removed, are Austrian Catholics. Dr. Fuchs was chief physician in a Vienna clinic during the Dolfuss days. When Dolfuss was killed, he ran to the Hitlerites accusing them of being "murderers." They replied by throwing him Itilo a concent r1 Ion enmp for n year. When he emerged he nd his wife left Vienna and eventually found their way to Italy, only to be interned in the notorious Fair-monte camp. When you ask others if they are anxious to return to Europe, they shake their heads. "What's left in Europe?" they ask. "Our homes are gone, our business is gone, our families are gone. Many of the elderly people have children in the armed forces of the United States. The children were sent to this country when things looked dark in Europe and they entered the Army upon , reaching the recruitment age. Reunions Frequent Reunions among such parents are not uncommon on the upper shores of Lake Ontario. Bed-ridden David Liban and his wife, Rela. of Vienna greeted their son, Cpl, Eric Liban, ' who is in the Air Forces, after a six-year separation Another son. Pvt. Otto Liban, now stationed in North Carolina, also visited them. The joy of such a reunion was denied Ignatz and Ester Boehm. also of Vienna. Their eon, Cpl. Fred Boehm, 23. telephoned from an F-stern city that he was being shipped overseas. The five years of separation now must await the Armistice and the vagaries of war. An American Army "veteran." only 14 years of age, is one of the most energetic youths in the camp. He is Joseph Hirt, a native of Poland and a talented boy who Continued on FaKe Seventeen 4 CASES ADDED TO POLIO LIST Four new resident cases of infan tile paralysis, reported yesterday, upped the total number treated here this summer to '114, with 67 1 of them from outside the city.

William B. Herlands, special as sistant attorney general in charge of the state's Election Frauds Bureau, will be in Rochester and Syracuse, Friday: Utica and Rome, Thursday, and Troy and Schenec tady, today, Attorney General Nathaniel L Goldstein announced in Albany. Visits will be in connection with a statewide survey of the election law conducted by Herlands and his chief aide. Special Assistant At torney John W. Burke Jr. Parleys Said "Preliminary'' Conferences this week, to take place in 12 cities, will be of preliminary character, the Associated Press said, with Herlands and Burke meeting with local repre sentatives 01 ine Attorney (jen-eral, election board members. police chiefs, district attorneys and representatives of civic organiza tions. Goldstein said that where local conditions indicate the need of special measures, arrangements would be made for co-ordinated use of special deputy attorneys general. special investigators, state police and local law enforcement officials. "Flying Squads" Planned He announced that "flying squads" of special deputies and investigators would cover exten- si upstate areas. He recalled that recently he asked county chairmen of the three major political parties to submit lists of lawyers. from which special deputies might be chosen to aug ment the regular staff of the bureau. The election frauds hurcnu was created by the l!)ll Lcglnlntui n a an outgrowth of a temporary bureau established last year during the opening phases of Governor Dewey's investigation of Albany County. Goldstein said Herlands was co-operating with the Dewey-ordered special Grand Jury investigating Albany County crime. "Unless we are prepared with plans and specifications," the com mission warned, 'Rochester will find itself once again engaged in projects, financed by either state or federal governments, that will have little permanent value." Over the 11 weeks In which it has been operating, the commission, headed by William G. Kael-ber, reported, it has considered a study of population trends in Rochester and Monroe County; prepared a large scale land use map, showing the use to which all land in the city is theoretically allocated, carried forward studies connected with revision of the major street plan, studied the central business district and undertaken a compre hensive survey of recreational areas, present and proposed, in the city. Other Stories I'nge J.t Rochester's long-discussed new City Hall von a high priority rating last night m a City Planning Commission re port on post-war activities. Recommending to City Council that the structure,- together with a War Memorial Audi- torium and other public buildings, be grouped in the quadrangle formed by Main East, South Avenue, Exchange and Court streets, the commission making its first report, announced that it will have plans prepared for the City Hall. On the auditorium project the commission recommended that "consideration be given the preparation of plans." This quadrangle, which the commission defined as "an area for the grouping of public buildings," Is Identical with the Civic Center site proposed by Bartholomew and Associates in a report prepared for the city in 1930. SuggCNtn Area KxtenHion Bartholomew proposed that the City Hall be built over the river immediately north of the Court Street bridge and that an auditorium occupy a site bounded by Court. Exchange and the river. The commission in its report last night suggested that funds for the auditorium be raised through public subscription or "by means other than local taxes or real estate." The commission in its report last night suggested that the public buildine area might be extended south along both banks of the river "to a point that would include the possible connection of Troup and Howell Streets and the development of the east and west banks of the river." Sees Business Aided "We are convinced," the com mission said, "that with the def inite anchoring of this site for such purpose, there would be steady increase in real estate values, and businessmen in the central business district would be able to make their plans with a knowledge of what is going to take, place in the future. It should result in a large amount of new construction in this and surrounding areas." The commission asked an alloca tion of $100,000 in the 1945 budget. In addition to rout Inn Hum for th city division of planning, to advance preparation of plans for permanent public works. It was understood, the commission said, that the state would match this, so that approximately 5250,000 Airman Reported Prisoner of Germans A Navy flyer has gone down with his plane in the Atlantic; a soldier: has been killed in action in France; four men have received wounds int action; two airmen are missing, and an aerial gunner is a prisoner of war in Germany, According tl yesterday's casualty list for Mon roe County. 60,000 in County Receive Rebates On Income Taxes Uncle Sam has handed out approximately 60,000 income tax rebates to Monroe County residents, Collector of Internal Revenue George T. McGowan of Buffalo reported yesterday. Visiting the local Internal Revenue office, McGowan said the number of rebates sent out constitutes about half the claims received from this county under the new withholding tax system. Remainder of the refunds approved by his office will be sent out before the end of this year. Many of the claims, however, resulted from inaccurate figuring and will require payments instead, McGowan said. In cases where persons elected to defer part of their tax payments until 1945 but failed to pay amounts they should have, they become liable immediately for the full amount of the 1944 tAX, It was explained.
