The, Arkansas Leatherneck celebrated his birthday ducking Japanese mortar and artillery fire with other members of the Fourth Marine Division as they stormed the beach on the Japanese infested island. "He has recently been returned here for treatment of wounds received when struck by shell fragments while participating In the engagement. A son of John Henry Daggett of Leachville, the young veteran of .he Marshall Island campaign and Saipan described the action at Saipan ns ucing "really hot." Both my commanding officer, Marine Colonel J. N. Chambers, of Huntiiujton, W. Va., and Marine Colonel Evans Carlson described Ihc capture of Hill 500 on Saipan as one of the toughest assignments ever handled by Marine forces," he declared. Daggett took part In this foray. "They were both injured In this battle, but somehow I managed to escape. The Japs had so many machine guns cm placed around the hill that it seemed almost Impossible to get over it. We were thrown back a number of times but finally managed to make the grade." Daggett was vivid in his description of the air assault by the Japs during the first 15 days of the campaign. Corporal l).i£gcU "We had raids every day night for Ihe first 15 days," It said. "The planes came from th then Jap-held Island of Titilan, tw and one-half miles away. Our de fcuse permitted only one plane get close enough to strafe whic was a pretty good defensive av erage in my estimation." Corp.

Prom the bruised lips of the Germans' victims McDermott has heard of wanton slaying or soldiers ami civilians alike. One American doughboy, Private Joseph Gorczca, told how he and five buddies were captured and stripped In a snow- covered field. German machine guns were turned on them. Joseph escaped by falling to the ground and playing possum. Later, almost frozen to death, he made his through the icy woods lo American lines. When the 84th and Second armored divisions took Odeigne. i town on the northern flank oi tlv bulge, Sergeant Harry Johnron o Houston, Texas, found the bodie of six victims of German terro slaying.

War Food Administrator Marvin Ijoncs has appealed to fanners to Increase production of pigs for I marketing as fat hogs next -fall land winter. Producers having ade- Iquatc feed supplies are asked to 1 keep additional sows suitable for I f arrowing next spring to help meet jthe. goal for spring pigs. In order to reach the goal, hog I producers would need to increase llhe number of sows farrowing next {spring about 11 per cent over the 1 number planned, ns indicated by (the December pig crop report. At the same time, Jones an- Inounced that the present govern- Inient support price on hogs will IK I continued until March 1, 194G. This Ime.ins that the WFA guarantees to {support prices at $12.45 cwt., Na- Ilional Slock Yards, for good to I choice butcher hogs weighing from |200 lo 210-lbs. until March 1, 104G. Commenting on the nnuouncc- Imeut, Jones said that the conlin- lucd high level of demand for meat 1 for war needs makes it imperative hog producers meet the goal Of 57,500,000 spring pigs. "I am concerned about the pros- Ipcct of a pig crop next spring Jsmaller than last spring," the Food 1 Administrator said. "We shall nee<1 (more hogs than now appears will Ibe marketed next fall and spring iThc feed grain supplies available 1 will feed more hogs than would be I produced from next spring's pig I crop, according to present indica- Ilions. I am risking all WFA agcn- Ictcs with field staffs to make ev- Icry effort lo let fanners know thai | We shall need additional pigs." A recent Agriculture Departmcn I survey indicated that the 1945 I spring pig crop would be 7 per I cent below a year ago and about 110 per cent below the WFA's pro- Iduction goal.
