Mr. Gallup Since the middle of Aueun a larger number ot persons ha.; come to the conclusion that the -war will be over in Europe bv Christmas, but the increase is only from 8 per cent to 12 per cent.

Just a Guess No one ran do any more than rues?, of course, but euessmg the length of the war is becoming one of America's favorite indoor pastimes. Th" Bri'ish are a!?o indulging m jt so much so that Prime Minister Churchill felt constrained to comment on the Mib.ject m a recent speech. The guesses, while they have little significance as predictions, assume real importance in relation to various phases of the war. The problem of absenteeism in war plants., for example, is ascribed by some Washington experts to over-optimism concerning the war. A person's belief as to the length ot the war may also have an effect on his purchase of War Bonds, his attitude toward taxes and many other matters.

District Firms Utilizing New Federal Loan Program Plan Gives Protection Against Cancellation Of War Contracts, Aids Post-War Planning By DALE McFEATTERS Press Business Editor .

Army Citation Marks Soldier-Hero's Death A Certificate of Honor marking the death of her only son killed in action Feb. 3 has been received by a Beechview widow. The certificate was issued to Mrs. Rose G. Joyce, of 805 Bayonne Ave., whose son. Pvt. William J. Joyce, 22. was killed in the Atlantic four months after he enlisted. , Pvt. Joyce, who worked at Kauf-mann's warehouse, was graduated from St. Catherine's Parochial School and South Hills High School. Previously, his mother received a Purple Heart awarded her son posthumously. loans, or VT loans as " they are known, solve one of the war manufacturer's most worrisome problems. Not only small firms but the largest corporations have some or all of their working capital tied up in war contracts, with little money set aside to finance a return to normal pursuits. Under usual Gov ernment procedures, it would be months, even years, after war contracts are terminated before a settlement could be made. U. S. Guarantees Credit Now. however, a war contractor can so to his bank and negotiate a line of credit, guaranteed by the Government, against which he can draw in the event his orders are canceled. While no VT loans actually have been negotiated in Pittsburgh as yet, a number of applications from district manufacturers are on file at the Pittsburgh Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank. The Pullman-Standard Car Manufacturing Co., which operates a large plant at Butler, announced that irhad obtained Army approval for the establishment of a 60-mil-lion-dollar VT line of credit at commercial banks. Kash-Kelvinator I'ses Plan The Nash-Kelvinator Corp. was first to take advantage of the new program, arranging a 75-million-dollar credit to enable it to change over rapidly to production of refrigerators and other household appliances, and eventually autos. as soon as materials become available. VT loans are an extension of the V (Victory loan) program set up by the Federal Reserve System. War and Navy Departments and the Maritime Commission whereby working capital needs of industry are satisfied by Federally-guaranteed bank loans. As in the old V guarantees, in terest on loans approved and guaranteed by Federal war agencies will be assumed by the Government at the time contracts ai e terminated. Sub-Contractors Eligible Credit to be made available is based on a percentage of a contractor's investment in war produc tion inventories, work in process accounts receivable from war pro duction and payments to be made to sub-contractors. Sub-contractors as well as prime contractors are eligible to receive credit. The VT loans were adopted by the Goomment to prevent any slackening-of war production that might result from manufacturers' uncertainty as to what will happen to their financial condition if contracts suddenly are canceled. "The credit agreement will not only benefit the company and its employes by minimizing interruption of jobs," C. A. Liddle, president of Pullman-Standard, commented on the company's loan. "Customers also will benefit because we shall be able to make available quickly the new rolling stock that is greatly needed."

The high-quality, complete proteins, the B vitamins and the minerals of meat are essential to the good physical condition of our fighting forces. A 90-day advance supply of food is needed for every man in training. An eight-month reserve is needed for every, man overseas. Every ship sunk, every shift in the progress of the war can increase the need. , Such are the calls coming in for the sides of beef and pork which used to be available at your neighborhood meat store. The meat and livestock industries have taken on a job of helping feed our fighters, providing meat for our fighting allies through . Lend.-Lease, and trying to meet the demands of a harder working civilian population with plenty of money to spend. More than 1200 American meat packing houses and nearly 1000 sausage makers are bending into this gigantic task. Millions of patriotic livestock producers are working with them in "backing the attack." PROTEINS ARE ESSENTIAL TO LIFE All meat beef, pork, lamb, veal, and sausage contains complete, highest quality proteins. All meat contains essential B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin) and important minerals (iron, copper, phosphorus). The human body does not store these nutritional essentials to any appreciable extent; you must get them from the daily food you eat. Remember, the flavor of meat is not rationed. Even a little meat changes the character of the whole meal. Supplement the proteins of meat with meat's "allies-in protein" poultry, fish, milk, eggs and cheese. Keep up on proteins.
