PACE TWELVE THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 1943 THE PORT HURON TIMES HERALD GERMANS KILL 44 CHILDREN School Smashed By Bomb In London Raid London, Jan. 21 The known death toll in the London school smashed by a German bomb Wednesday was raised to 44 today after rescue workers worked through the night in the debris. Three teachers were among the killed, the rest were children. Fifty others were reported injured. Two German airplanes were reported destroyed over England Wednesday night during scattered night raids which caused four alarms to be sounded in London. An authoritative statement said the raiders operated over coastal districts of south and southeast England and East Anglia and a few Of them flew in as far as the home counties bordering London. "Bombs were dropped at a few places." it said. "Only slight damage was done and there were no reports of any casualties." Incendiary bombs were dropped in the southeast section of the greater London area during one alert but the Germans never penetrated beyond the outskirts and then but once. Throughout the night rescue workers probed the fire-blackened debris for the bodies of children buried when the London school was smashed. The rescue work began as soon as the school was hit and a resultant fire was extinguished and continued without pause, regular civil defense workers and volunteers laboring through the long, misty night by the light of shaded lamps and flares. Twice the lights were extinguished when alerts were sounded but the digging went on. Canadian soldiers in trucks equiped with winches and wire hawsers aided the workers, dragging away great blocks of masonry weighing several tons. Outlines Plans For CAP Members Lansing, Jan. 21 Three thousand Civil Air Patrol flyers who in 1942 spent nearly a million dollars of their own money in volunteer flying for the government, today were planning to establish 28 "emergency' stations at airports throughout the state. Capt. Squire D. Eurich, of the CAP'S executive office at Detroit, , told members of the Michigan Defense council the CAP was organizing to provide a three-man crew for 24 hour duty at each of the 28 specially designated airports as a : pracaution against enemy air raids, j "In addition to maintaining a ; courier service for war needs dur-! ing time of raids," Captain Eurich said, "the crews would be pre-5 pared to strew the fields with de-; brLs at a minute's notice to prevent ; enemy planes from landing. Under present conditions the enemy could j land and refuel at our own ; tanks. fii ill!""

WAACs DON'T LIKE TIN PAN ALLEY'S SONGS, SO THEY ARE WRITING OWN New York. Jan. 21 Tin Pan alley is wacky about WAACs, but the girls in khaki prefer to roll their own tunes. Ruby Jane Douglas, special service officer of the WAACs and former vocal music supervisor of the Bristow. Okla., public schools, says the tunesmiths have bowled such titles as there down their alley: "I've Got A WAAC On My Hands and A Wave In My Hair." "I'm Wacky Over Something In Khaki," "She's My Little Sweetheart In A Captain's Uniform," "I'm Doing The WAAC, WAAC, WAAC. WAAC Walk," "Nimitz Is The Limitz. But the tunes are not what the girls want at their training bases at Fort Des Moines, la., and Day-tona, Fla., she said. One song, she said, "made me so State Revenues Set Record In Last 6 Months Of 1942 Lansing. Jan. 21 Auditor General Vernon J. Brown today revealed the record-breaking sum of S63.547.920, but solemnly warned legislators and administrators of predicted revenue shrinkage in the face of increased spending demands. The six months collections compared with S58.343.464 collected for the same period in 1941 and S48.024.772 in 1940. Brown pointed out in his warning that operating expenditures for the period totalled SI, 708.872 more than for the last six months of 1941. He said increased state payrolls, added grants to local units of government and defense expenditures accounted for the increase. Brown also noted that S8.000.000 of late 1942 revenue came from the liquor control commission, representing amassed profits, and that such a large payment might not be realized in another year. Norris Retires To Home In Nebraska McCook, Neb., Jan. 21 AP George W. Norris the "old warrior" of congress who served 30 consecutive years in the senate after a decade of service in the house is returning to this small Nebraska town, where he launched his political career, his plans for the immediate future undecided. The 81-year-old liberal, defeated last November in his bid for his sixth term in the senate, is determined not to accept offers of government posts. He has asserted that his only wish is to have a hand in formulating the peace to end the war. SHAMALY MARKET PHONE 3966 Char;t',c;"Eh 712 Huron Ave. All Our Meat Is U. S.

You know the Army makes three copies of everything." In describing another, she exclaimed, "WAAC. WAAC, WAAC! It sounds like a duck." Since the WAACs haven't got the songs they want from the professionals, they're digging into their own ranks for marching songs and their own show, which will be patterned after Irving Berlin's "This Is The Army." Lieutenant Douglas is in New York to arrange for the publishing of a composition of her own which she hopes will become the WAACs official song. It's entitled "The WAAC Is In Back Of You." "I wrote the song the day I went into the service," she said. "Whenever I get excited about something I write a song about it. I drove down to Oklahoma City to be inducted. My car made clicking noises on the pavement of the highway. The clicks had a rhythm, a military marching rhythm. When I got home that night I wrote it." She has also written "There'll Be A New Style Bonnet In The Easter Parade" and "Something New Has Been Added To The Army." Both will be played and sung in the WAACs show, she said, rehearsals of which start about Feb. 1. with the opening set for around March 1. Dempsey To Pay Wife $500 3Ionthly White Plains. N. Y..

Of 12 newly created regional boards with given powers of final decision, only the "Detroit region" board will concern itself exclusively with the problems of one state Michigan. The other 11 encompass added territory besides that of the headquarters state. Announcement of the decentralized setup, expected to facilitate mediation of labor disputes, was made by the Washington board Wednesday night. Within a week or 10 days the new boards will be ready to begin operations, said WLB Chairman William H. Davis. The national board, he said, will function as a 'supreme court for labor disputes" by retaining the right to review regional verdicts. Prof. Edwin E. Witte, chairman of the University of Wisconsin eco- inomics department, was named chairman of the Detroit region board. The Detroit board, like the others, will have 12 members. Labor, industry and the public will be equally represented. Professor Witte will serve as a public member. Chairman Davis announced that: the new boards would have f.nal j decisions on labor disputes and on j voluntary wage and sa.ary adjustments. Lehman Aide Killed New York, Jan. 21 William Hodson.

Jan. 21 Six persons were injured, none seriously, in a bus accident Wednesday and police are looking for both the bus and its "driver." The "driver" was an impatient passenger who drove off with the bus while the official driver was in a store getting warm. The passenger drove the vehicle only a few blocks when he became involved in an accident, injuring six passengers. They received first aid treatment at a nearby factory. The bus and the impatient passenger had disappeared when authorities arrived at the scene of the accident.
