TUESDAY, JUNK 4, 19-1(3 Bread and Meat Shortages Acute Survey Discloses Conditions Getting Worse Over Nation. JSLYTHEViLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Rules Virginia's 'Jim Crow' Law Is Unconstitutional WASHINGTON, June 4. (UP) — Tile Supreme Courl ye.slerdnv de- llnrcd unconstitutional a Virginia "Jim Crow" liny requiring searetjn- Uou of Neyi'o biLs passengers traveling through Ihe stale; The Court's 0 to 1 ruling was written by Justice Stanley p.

Bui the Court }ield that any law cither directing or for- blUdlng segregation of interstate passengers wns, n matter for fed- supplies in critical areas a "lend-lcnse" arrangement will') millers. But nt Chicago representatives of the millers believed the plan would be of liltle help. They said 'no per cent of the nation's Hour mills already had closed. Under, Ihe program, the government would lend wheat lo millers whose June grind is less than .'17 1-2 per cenl of the flour milled in June last year. In another move io lessen (lift bread shortage, the Office of 1'rloe Administration was considering a sharp cul in sugar allotments lo the baking industry. This would prevent bakers from turning oul higher priced pastries iu.sleail of bread. At Chicago, millers attending a meeting of the Association of Operative Millers predicted that Hie shortage would continue dc.spite the bumper wheat harvesl. Farmers would hesitate to market more th-in half the new crop. Ihe millers said, because; of uncertainty over government programs and price ceilings. Meanwhile, the American Meat Institute reported a "further sharp drop" in meat production of leglti- rather than slate regulation, male packers last week and pre-1 officiated. Thc Virginia courts held the law valid as applied to either passengers traveling within or through the .stale. The stale defended segregation ns a recognition of human nature. It said the law was passed to prevent racial clashes which might endanger the public safety and was a lawful exercise of n state's power under the Constitution. William H.JInslie, newly a):|>oint- ed governor of Virgin Islands who ! Miss Billyc Pickett Wed to Merlin Irby In n ceremony May 16 nt the First Methodist Church In West Memphis, Miss uillye Piekett of West Memphis and Reiser, became the bride of H. Merlin Irby or Oseeola. She is [he daughter of Mr. and Jvjrs. W..E. Pickett of Osccola. Dr. J. w. Carnell, pastor of Eve r- elte Memorial Methodist church, acted as Miss Morgan's attorney argued IhiU "Jim Crowlsm" Us at odds with a national policy lhai opposed all racial discrimination. Twelve other Southern States have laws calling for some kind of passenger segregation on public vehicles. Eight slates have laws prohibiting racial segregation. "It seems clear lo us that sealing arrangements for the differ- out races in inlerslale motor Iruvel require r. .single uniform rule to promote and prolec't national travel," IjeeU said. "Consequently, we hold the Virginia statute in controversy Invalid." The tribunal reaffirmed the correctness or r. ruling by (he Supreme Court In 1878. Then Ihe .justices declared invalid' a "carpetbagger" law of Ixnilslnnn which prohibited segregation. It appeared (hat under today's ruling the "Jim, Crow" laws of 10 Southern stales, as applied to travelers on Interstate vehicles, were declared uncpnstlluMqnal. In addition, the bioad ruling of the Court, appnrcndy would Invalidate—so far as Interstate travol Is concerned—statutes of 18 other stales which ban segregation ol the races.

Wafer for the European Invasion. Plpns for the invasion of Europe included elaborate arrangements to provide every Gl with an adequate supply of safe water. During D-Day and until such time as inland supplies could be procured, our troops drank "canned" wafer supplied in fiver gallon containers. In addition to the normal allotment ferried across the Channel, additional water cans were crammed into every nook and cranny unoccupied by other provisions in the holds of all supply ships. Each soldier was also issued chlorq- mine tablets to disinfect whatever water he could find in cost the treated supplies should be cut off. General Eisenhower's decision to drop the 101st and 82nd American Airborne Divisions at the base of the Normandy peninsula on the dawn of D-Day, provided the first teitt of a novej water supply system. Pqratroop units were supplied with "w*ter bundles" consisting of eight two-gallon cans filled with water laid side to side in rows of four and two tiers high—the stack being held together by thick strips of woo«|. This framework was then padded and covered to cushion the impact pf the fall when these precious packages were dropped from supply planes to paratroopers. Once the inland supplies were seized, the Sanitary Corps assumed the duty of supplying water to the troops. First, the water was quickly analyzed for the presence of poisonous chemicals. If the water passed these tests, mobile water purification equipment was rushed to the so-called "waterpojnt." Water was treated by convention methods including coagulation, filtration, and chlorination. The purified water was stored in collapsible canvas tanks having a capacity of 3,000 gallons. From this "cleqrwell," water was pumped through a "gas station hose" into cans which were then hustled to the front. Blytheville Water Co.
