2 Friday, September 8, 1944 Jrank Meat Co. Semi-Weekly "Zooms" Howdy, Folks! . . . Well. Ihis reporter is in Ihe doghouse jitjnin . . . However, being in Ihe doghouse is nothing new l<> me. ... It hnppened this way: You remember Ihe hig company pirnir (he Frank Meaf Company had n few Sundays ago. Well, it seems as (honed \ve overlooked some of (he Indies who were very helpful in making it a success. Mrs. Fred SHieililc. Mrs. T. L. Frank am! Mrs. H. J. Frank r;ime into Ihis ofTiee as a grievance committee and said. "See here, you big Ing, you overlooked us entirely in your report about the picnic. Who cooked the meat? Who made the salads? "Who fixed the tables and, in fact, who did almost all the work? "Well, if you don't know, ii was we (hree poor defenseless women. Ho at least give us a break and mention our names. Don't just (ake all the credit yourself and make everyone believe yon did it all." "Well, girls, I certainly do apologize and am very sorry you were oxer- looked and T wish at Ibis time to make a public statement thai you were very helpful. In^facl, so far as the "calincnts" were concerned . , . you were the whole cheese. So please forgive me . . . lei's overlook it for this time and next year you will receive your full share of credit. Well, folks, it seems as though most all our markets are well supplied with wieners. Wieners (or hot dogs) are a great favorite with all the family, especially Ihe youngsters. So if you want to please the family, give them a change for tonight. Serve hot dogs. Beef and veal arc (|iiile plentiful, and \vc receive a fair supply of lambs. but pork remains on Ihe scarce list. Just \\ h\ . we do not know. One source of information says one thing and another source says something else. So your guess is as good as ours. However, when pork is available again in quantifies you ran be sure Frank Meat Company will be first to have it. . . . MEAT the people at Frank Meat Company's six busy markets. Frank's Reporter F. D.

New Deal Afraid to Cope With Problems: Dewey Continued I" .velt's administration is "afraid of Anicri'n" and is "getting all set for another depression," Uewey told a oneeriiiu audience of about 1:1.000 persons in Philadelphia's Convention hall lhal "with the winning of the war in sight there are two great o\ ershado\\ nig problems." Peace First "First." lie said, "the making and keeping of the peace of the world so lhat your children and my children shall not face this tragedy all over again." "The other problem." he continued, "is whether we shall replace the tired and quarrelsome defeatism of the present administration with a fresh and vigorous government which believes in the future of the r'nitcd Stales, and knows how to act on that belief. '• Foreign Affairs Announcing he would devote to- nighl s speech before the closing session of the National Federation of Republican Women's ('lubs conven- 11011 to foreign affairs problems. Dewey told the Philadelphia audience "f am deeply devoted to the principle that victory jn this war shall mean \ictory for freedom and for the .permanent peace of the world. Our place in y peaceful world can and will be made serin e. But nothing on earth will make us secure unless we are strong, unless we are productive and unless we have faith in ourselves. ...

(L'.P.) — I ['resident Roosevelt today shrugged off charges by Governor Thomas K. j Dewey. the Republican presidential ] candidate, that the administration j was "afraid" to release soldiers from 1 I he army because it feared another depression. Asked about Dewey's charge, the President told his questioners to say that the I'resideril smiled broadly j and said nothing. Then Mr. Roosevelt was asked whether he considered bis administration "tired, (lunrrelsome and defeated" as Dewey described it in his opening campaign speech at Philadelphia last night. The President smiled and remarked that he had said before that he would like lo go home to Hyde Park, but not because he was tired or defeated.

Serbs Revolt on Nazi Occupators Conuinird J*'rom Pago One . with Anglo-American attacks on the Balkans from the west. Moscow's early morning war bulletin said the Red army cleared a :!<iOO-squure-ni!le area of" southern Rumania and extended its grip on the Danube river border of Bulgaria to 22(i miles, advancing :!!) miles west from Suhaia to capture the river town of f'orabia. 1,'nited Press War Correspondent M. S. Handler reported from the Soviet capital that the Russians were moving a great force of men and equipment to the Yugoslav and Bulgarian borders and the battle for the Balkans was approaching its climax. Handler said the southern Rumanian plains were being transformed into a great armed camp as a base for attacks westward toward the Adriatic and southward across Bulgaria to Greece. "For the first time in the war there is the prospect or Allied armies and Russian forces co-ordinating their operations i>n the same front and making a junction," lie said. "There appears a strong possibility that the Red army and Allied invasion forces may meet in Yugoslavia and Freece." The Nazi DNB news agency claimed the Soviets invaded Bulgaria even before declaring war on that country and had penetrated 2(5 mites into Greece to the village of Uerno- tica, on the Turkish border only BO miles from the Aegean. Simultaneously, the Yugoslav radio said thousands of Serbian villagers had revolted against the (iermans and Were battling the Nazis at scores of points. American and Russian planes are supplying arms and ammunition for the Patriots, the broadcast said. The Partisans reported particularly fierce fighting near the Yugo- slav-F'ulgarian border where they said the Germans and their Quisling allies were in headlong flight to tile north. The main Xagreb-Bclgrade and the Skoipje-iielgrade urilway lines were said to have been cut at. a number of points, hampering the retreat of German forces -n Bulgaria and Greece. One report said 1000 Germans were killed when Partisans derailed a troop train near Belgrade. .Meanwhile Moscow communiques reported new Soviet successes at the northern end of the Russian line, where Red army troops knifed deeper into the German defenses above Warsaw gaining 2 miles on an II-mile front along the Xarew river. The Soviets closed in to within 9 miles southwest of the enemy bastion of Lonixha. -0 miles south of the Kast Prussian border and 76 miles northeast of Warsaw, capturing Tarnowo after a furious battle. The Russians also captured \Vo.1- ciechowiec, '2 miles northeast of the alien German stronghold of Ostro- leka. and Berlin acknowledged that the Red army had forged three strong bridgeheads across the Na- rew in a drive that menaced both the northern flank of Warsaw and the southern approaches to Kast Prussia. German tanks and infantrymen launched 12 separate counteattacks against the Russians below Lomzha. but Moscow reported they were beaten off with henvy casualties. At least son Nazis were killed in that sec! or vest erda \.
