KAGE TWO 1 Details of B-29 Are Made Known Super-Bomber's Crews Can Fly High Without Oxygen Gas Masks 'I WICHITA, KatC, June 22 (UP)— The-;War Department has permit- ted'the disclosure of more details, heretofore secret, pn the v new and fabulous B29, Bupef-bomtier. Perhaps the most important cen- ters'611 the process called "pressurizing" which enables'crews io fly at great altitudes for the livsl time without gas masks. The "pressurizing" facilities are put In operas ilojf, at a pre-determlned .helglif, and, the eaine air pressure is main-, tallied until Uie plane reaches what the'Army calls,; "a 'relatively high alllfude." This relieves the -crew meinbers of the, fatigue that, comes from handling cumbersome gear of gas"niaslss and oxygen/ The Germans experimented for a lolig. time - with, this process. But (hey. never'ivere- able to 'perfect it for'combat, work.' ;.'.•• The. Army , also.reveals, that t!ie neyjsky battleship is equipped will) 150»e)e6trlo"'iiiot<3rs, and nothing will-put any of them out of action except a direct lilt.

Whfn landing it strides the runway at IflO miles L aii hour and: stops dead inside the 400-foot take-off distance. The War Deportment also re- venls an impressive fuel doubtless known to many .Japanese'already.

Thoughtless Remarks Hurt Wives Of Men In 4-F Classification By KUT1I MILLETT 'I think sometimes if I henr Just one more 4F wise crack I'll scream," says the wife of a man classified as 4P, "Becnuse," she explains, "every time my husband hears one of those slurring remarks about 4P's he Is moody and hnrd to live with for days. The physical handicap, which he had learned to Jive with, hus been made the most important thing ill his lite. And it is ruining our home." It Is strange that the American people have been so unfeeling nlxiut 4F's, because we have learned to be considerate of the people who arc physically or mentally handicapped. We don't make fun of them the way people used to do. Thnl Is, we didn't Until the draft came along. Then, because we c^uld lump a lot of people together and call them 4F's, it somehow became all right to poke fun ut them. ^ NOTICE Notice is hereby given that the undersigned will within the time n\eM by law apply to the Commis- iioiier of Revenues of the State of Arkansas for a permit to sell beer at ictall at 228 N. 2nd St, Blytheville, Mississippi County. - "' The undersigned scales that he is' a ctttswn of Arkansas, of good moral character, that he has never been convicted of a felony or other cilme involving moral turpitude'; that'no license to sell beer by the undersigned has been revoked within five years last past; and' lhat the undersigned has never been convicted of violating the laws of this state or any) other state, relating to the sale of alcoholic liquors. .
