One be the right of the French authorities to lay claim tn French funds which have been tied up in this country since German troops overran the French nation. Strengthens Position It also appeared that De Gaulle's position of insistence on French representation in the higher Allied councils such as the Kuropean advisory commission would be greatly strengthened. Stettlnius said word had been sent to the French government that "if agreeable" Jefferson Caffery, who recently arrived in Paris as "representative" with the personal rank of ambassador, would assume the duties of ambassador to France. Most favorable consideration will be given to those business and professional men whose presence in France will contribute to victory or the rebuilding of the French nation. By provisional recognition, the DeCaulle administration becomes the first generally recognized government of France since the critical days of 3942 when relations were broken off with the Vichy government.

East Ohio spokesmen listed damage to the $6,000,000 liquid gas storage plant, first of its kind in the nation, at more than {4,000,000. City and government Investigators predicted the cause of the holocaust would remain buried in the ruins. Unofficial sources advanced the theory that either an explosion freed liquid gas from the storage tanks or that liquefied gas flowed from a fissure and formed a combustible mixture which exploded.

DO YOU KNOW why our government had to ask you to save used fats in the first place? It was chiefly because the Japs had taken the Philippines, Java, Malaya . .. the places we used to depend on for a billion pounds of fats and oils every year. WELL/ THE JAPS still hold those places. So when you hear good news from the European fronts, remember that those victories don't help our fat shortage problem. They increase it, for winning victories is a costly business that calls for more and more explosives, tanks, guns, synthetic rubber, soaps, medicines and other war and civilian materials that need fats in the making. THAT'S WHY your>used kitchen fats are needed more than ever. So keep on saving and turning them in regularly. When the can is full, rush it to your butcher, and get 2 free red points and 4t for every pound. This is one of the important things you can do toward victory! Approved by OVA, WFA, WPB.
