SHARING Ky MAK S.U XDKRS If you haven't given to tho. war chest and think yon haven't got enough money to make a donation or pledge, take time to R lance into tho "Vol'aiigenxon Gazette." htat is produced by hand and typewriter three times weekly by a little staff of men. Tho men arc prisoners of war in a German prison camp. And this publication is published and sent to relatives through co-operation with the American Red Cross and the Prisoners' Aid Service that is supported by your war chest donation. The copy I saw today belongs to Mrs. Louis Bianchi. Her son, Lieutenant Louis Bianchi, Jr., has been in a prison camp for 14 months. Only a mother can tell the comfort it is to got a glimpse, of the life her son is leading, even if the. picture is harsh. She knows that when word conies out of a prison camp, she can be given consideration such as was tendered her in a letter she received yesterday from Sergeant Carlos Gutierrez who was expatriated from the Stalag Luft 111 whore Lieutenant Bianchi was taken after he was removed from the "missing in action" list. Sergeant Ciiitierres! reports through a form letter prepared by Prisoners' Aid. Maybe 'JOO mothers received let- tors signed personally by the sergeant. Ill and unable to write, his words were taken down and 200 mothers got letters reassuring them their sons "were all right." Only those who wait and long- to hear can how what that service means. Your dollars to the war. chest helps do this kindly thing: for sons who want to communicate with dear ones, and for the mothers and wives who wait to hear. . Now take a peek into what prisoners, about 45(10 American boys, Public Warning! BEWARE OF PIN-WORMS Wartime living condition! may be the cause of spreading Pin-Worm infection. Scientific reports in many communities have shown at lea§t line-third of the examined children and grown-upa to be victims of Pin-Worms—often without knowing what was wrong 1 Watch out for the warning signs that may mean Pin-Worms in your child or yourself: the tormenting, embarrassing rectal itch, the uneasy stomach, bed-wetting, nervous fidgeting, finicky appetite. N»w Diicovwy Haifa! By Doctor* After centuries of distress caused by Pin- Worms, a new and highly effective way to deal with this stubborn pest has recently been discovered. This scientific discovery, hailed by medical authorities, is a remarkable drug (gentian violet). It is the vital element in P-W, the new Pin-Worm treatment developed by the laboratories of Dr. D. Jayne A Son, America's leading specialists in worm medicines. P-W tablets are small and easy to take, and they act in a special way to destroy the creatures. So don't take chances with Pin-Worms. At the first warning sign, ask your druggist for f-W, and follow the directions. P-W means Pin-Worm relief 1 Now Many Wear FALSE TEETH With More Comfort FASTEETH, a pleasant ..alkaline (non-acid) powder, holds false teeth more firmly.

Here's one cxi'orpl: "\Ve whistle while you make this Christmas fruit cake. One half-box of. raisins, an equal amount of pitted prunes, and si paekage of dales should should soak over night. Then stew the fruit and add a can of rolled oats, a box of ground ginger biscuits if available, several spoonfuls of margarine and a. half a can of condensed milk. Add bread crumbs and prune kernels until it forms a thick batter. "Bake in a slow oven. It serves 8." "Not bad," does one say? But the raisins, primes, and dates and condensed milk had to be hoarded from Red Cross supplies that come in regularly. To these some prisoners attributed their lives. And here's a joke, a bit grim to civilians, but still a joke. "Sometimes the 'flak' would bo so thick that one might be tempted to get out of bed and walk around on it." The chaplain's church news is that he "will begin teaching Bible classes." Another excerpt. "It just doesn't niPnt: "Bundles of booty such as Tuesday, March 7 at 7 a. in., five men departed for the hospital at LiiiinsduiT. They arrived at !i in the afternoon only to be denied entrance as patients, due to an already overcrowded condition." One story tells of a search of the Gazette office and the German search resulted in this comnient: "Bundles of booty such as iron bars, unopened food, oleo lamps and other miscellaneous articles were carried away by the Germans." Headline stories are the arrival of Ked Cross articles and some prisoner's aid materials, including new phonograph records. Your chest dollars help make these headlines in a prison camp newspaper. And here's a bit from a letter from home, printed in the Prisoner's Gazette, printed no doubt with wry zest: "I hope you are getting enough money where you are; if not, wire me and I'll send you a check." The only way your money can get to the boys who need it is through the war chest. Why not give now and give plenty? The Bakersfield Community Chest is short. Bakersfield can't top its war record with a deficit on the 1944 War Chest Campaign. Gault Will Head Fire Civil Service Group John C. Gault was elected chairman of the Civil Service Commission for the Bakersfield fire department at a meeting of the commission last night at the office of Fire Chief 10. K. AVoods. Air.
