Woman Advises Local People With Priority Headaches By BARBARA BECKETT Intermediary between local businessmen and the vast complexity of orders and counter orders issued by the War Production Board Is Mrs. Myrtle Danford, consultant on priorities whose office la a branch of the county purchasing department. Mrs. Danford was appointed two and a half years ago by the Board of Supervisors, and since that time has acted as adviser to all persons In the county with headaches over priority problems. "Everything from vitamin A to building construction Is regulated," Mrs. Danford said as example of the scope of her duties. "There has been some loosening up of priority restrictions, and will probably be more with the resumption of civilian production," she said. "Priorities have been revoked on some types of tools." she added. Mrs. Danford emphasizes that her office is not a priorities board. She merely advises as to the procedure of getting priorities, chances of obtaining a special rating and handling of correspondence. Application forms, made out under her direction, are forwarded to the %Ve Present an •important Qroup Every Suit a "Blue Ribbon" Winner Eastern Solicits Your Charge Account We Are Specialists in Half-Size Fashions JUST RECEIVED!

Onp-lVrson Study "It Is a one-person study to keep up with the orders, counter orders and amendments issued every day by the WPB." she said. "Sometimes as many as '50 of these, come through in a single day. It would be impossible for a businessman to keep up with all of them." A note of humor Is sometimes Injected into her work. A 7-foot-tall man'recently came into Mr. Danford's office with a plea for getting a new suit of clothes. According to War Production Board order No. L2-24, no tailor was allowed to use sufficient cloth In his suit to cover his ankles. Mrs. Danford came to the rescue by discovering a paragraph in the order granting exemption to persons of unusual size. Housing Shortage Headache The housing shortage provides one big headache to Mrs. Danford, as well as to persons wishing to build. "Everyone with a stick of lumber comes to see me," she said. All such requests are now turned over to the federal housing authority. "It is harder now to get permits to build," Mrs. Danford asserted, "since restrictions on lumber have been tightened up." "My department Is maintained simply as a service to the public," according to Mrs. Danford. All ration boards In the county refer persons with priority problems to her. Her telephone number Is well known to local business men who are unable themselves to keep abreast of the complexity of WPB orders.

PAIRS F. D. R. Aids Child Born of Tragic England Romance By ROBERT MUSKL LONDON. Oct. 10. (UP)—The kindly intervention of President Roosevelt opened tlio way today for a new life behind America's tranquil shores for the nameless child of an American soldier and a British girl. The infant, born out of wedlock, was being taken by an American army nurse by train to a northern airport, from where the air transport command will fly the little tot to the United Stales. Only a handful of persons know the baby's name. One is an American army chaplain in Kngland, and another thp nurse. Lieutenant Evelyn Anderson. But rill have taken an oath never to reveal the infant's identity. The same people also knew the details of a tragic romance in Liverpool, whore tlio father was sent to France and killed in action before he could marry the girl ho loved. Before that, however, tho father had written to his parents In America of his love for tho English girl. Then when they learned of the birth of the child they appealed to tho But that brought a rlisap- pointniTit to the grandparents. They wpro told there was no provision in army regulations covering such a situation, in desperation, they wrote to President Unosovelt. They told him how they wanted tho baby to live in a land where no one would know of tho stain of birth. They vowed tho baby will never know, and promised to keep as an eternal secret the forces set in motion to assure the infant a life just like that of any legal baby. The heart-rending appeal brought an order from President Roosevelt to the Air Transport Command to carry the child as a priority passenger. The baby, about fl months old and fondly called "Joe" by Nurse Anderson, will be tho youngest trans-At- lantic air passenger of all time, and provides the Transport Command with perhaps Its strangest cargo. When the order reached the command, officials at tho big North Field had to scurry around for Infant's sleeping garments and bottles In preparation for the. arrival of Thursday, October 19, 1944 11 United States war department for Lieutenant Anderson who will ac permission to bring tlie baby to tho I company the baby all the \vny to the states. , i now home.

The first two shocks were felt at. 1:37 a. m.. coming in close succession, and tho third at 2:07 a. m. Officials at the county hospital 2 miles north of here reported all three were "very severe" and accompanied by concussion, giving rise to the belief that explosions were the cause rather than earthquakes. The office of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat, a daily newspaper, reported it was flooded with calls from Santa Rosa residents awakened by the shocks. cmrCoucHS ue to colds ... eased without "dosing".
