Pilot Nearly Ends Career Before Reaching Front A. tropical ocean storm almost ended the flying career of Capt. Stephen Howbert before he reached the battle area, but now "he is a veteran of 60 missions against the Japs in the South Pacific. Capt. Howbert, who arrived in St. Louis just in time to celebrate his 27th birthday with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Howbert, 7629 Wy-down blvd., Clayton, today told of his most hazardous adventure encountered while he was piloting one of a flight of Marauder bombers from the United States to New Caledonia. "A storm front closed in on us and we dropped to the wave tops as we had been instructed. We weren't more than 50 feet above the lashing sea, a blinding rain made visibility zero and it was so dark our luminous instrument dials blinded us," Capt. Howbert said. , "My air speed kept dropping and I couldn't increase it. By this time it was so dark I couldn't see the ocean, but I knew it was just a few feet below me. My co-pilot and I realized we couldn't keep our ship in the air much longer at our slow speed. "But we somehow managed to keep going " the captain continued. "We weathered the storm and landed safely at our destination. Later we decided our air speed indicator i must have been so filled with water it couldn't register accurately. We never could have remained in the air if the registered speed had been correct.' Capt. Howbert has been awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and Air Medal.

Eisenhower's troops in Africa and Sicily. - --r Downtown bars seU more mixed hard drinks than beer. It is. the neighborhood taverns C at are hardest hit by the shortage. A Star-Times reporter today listened to a heated argument in one large west end tavern on the respective merits of draught and bottled beer. The white-haired bartender put in his professional opinion: "If you can't get draught beer you -e out in the rain." . '.- Art Meyer, secretary of the State Retail Liquor Dealers' Association, told the Star-Times that "Tavern-keepers feel they are being discriminated against in favor of super-markets and drug stores which seU bottle beer." K - Our members pay a license of $647.50,' said Meyer, "while those retail stores pay only $70 for their liquor license. "Our members feel the brewers should cut their production of bottled beer and supply more draught beer. This would save on bottle, caps, CAMERAS NEEDED!! which are scarce." "There simply is not enough beer to supply the dealers with all they want,": Walker. Pierce, president of the Missouri Brewers' Association, told the ' Star-Times. "The brewing industry received a ci.t in bottle caps and a 'small cut in malt. Besides, there is a greater-demand for beer." . Brewers are rationing limited supplies of draught beer to their customers according to . prior sales, Pierce explained. "This seemed to be, a fair method, and is followed in many other industries."
