Since the first postage stamp was introduced in America in 1847, plans are ^already under way to observe the centennial in this country in 1947. An interesting story of Abraham Lincoln, which transpired during his career as postmaster of fee New Salem postoffice, was told by the speaker who pointed out fee honesty of the Civil war president in walking several miles to make a rebate on a letter carrying too much postage. Taken from several collections in Indianapolis, Mr. Williams had wife him a group of stamps, valued at several hundred dollars, which he passed around for the group to inspect. One of fee most interesting exr hibits was a letter carried around fee world on fee first flight of the Graf Zeppelin. Estimates have placed the number of stamp collectors in fee United States at about ten million, Mr. Williams stated as he pointed out fee many ways in which the postal authorities assist them to obtain stamps issued for .commemorative purposes.

An appeal on behalf of the United Service Organizations Washington said fee United £>tates will take a grave view of the incident if it should be ascertained that a German or Italian vessel sank the ship. At the same time it appeared ,certain that Congress would enact into law within one week legislation empowering President Roosevelt to take over strike-bound defense plants.

PERGAILON WAKE-UP'SYSTEM FREE PARKING FOR WAKE-DP CUSTOMERS (Continued from Face One) It looked like a Hollywood beau geste from the outside, but inside we knew it was well equipped with modern guns and mortars. At 8:30 in the morning it pfe^ sented as peaceful a scene as one could wish. Then we saw tanks go into action, in the distance looking like a string of monstrous, angry beetles. Furious machine- gun fire filled the air, punctu-. ated the deadly, dull reports of mortars fired by both the defenders and the attacking Aus- sies. The tanks never stopped and by 10:30 a. m. the important fort was taken. Meantime there was no letup as another column of Australian infantry advanced along a ridge to the left of the village, which .was heavily defended by Algerian machine gunners hidden in olive groves. ' It was here that on the previous morning a truce had been attempted. The opposing forces were 200 yards apart when a courageous Free French captain stepped into the open carrying a white bag. The Aussies could clearly hear the yells from the other side: "Who's that unnameable with the white flag? Shoot him!V An enemy officer apparently restrained the men, but before the Free Frenchman advanced 100 yards a volley rang out and the Frenchman fell halfway between the opposing lines. He managed to crawl behind a tree and lay there through al- I most continuous fire. I That night two young Australian volunteers crept out and dragged him back. He-had been wounded in seven places . but was still alive. Late in the day I swung over to a sector where a crack British imperial regiment advanced through Kuneitra toward Damascus. Except for two points which they quickly took with an enveloping movement, they met only slight resistance. Here again an attempt was made to negotiate a truce. A Free French delegate conferred over glasses of beer for:. five hours with a representative of Gen. Henri Dentz, the • French j high commissioner for Syria. The negotiations broke down, the two negotiators finished their beer, and the British attacked and took the town. Meanwhile, •: very . ; little air activity has* been seen/so far." •• Today allied units were within sight of Damascus while other units approached Beirut. ST. KM HELPS fliGKEY Won Gumbert and Some Cash 'from Terry as McGee. is Traded to Giants. ,\ C8y International News S»ryice) New York, June 11.—The next time Bill Terry sees Branch Rickey coining down the street, the cheerless leader of the Giants probably will move elsewhere in a hurry and with both hands in his pockets. You will recall that some time ago Brother Terry camped on the Rickey doorstep pleading for some pitching help. The old Cardinal boss trader agreed to do something for his good friend bill. Said Brother Rickey to Brother Terry: "Okay, Bill, I know you're in a fix and far be it from me to deny a favor to a friend . . have a great young pitcher named Bill McGee. Now I'll give you this fellow practically for nothing. All you've got to do is slip me somebody who doesn't amount to .much—say, Harry Gumbert—and toss in a few bucks on the side and we'll call it a deal." "Why, that's great,' said Brother Terry, thinking happily of the fast one he was putting over on Brother Rickey. The exchange was made and Gumbert promptly went on a winning spree for the Cardinals (and he's still on it), while McGee went into -what the Medicos call a serious decline. McGee dropped his sixth straight as a Giant yesterday. Hank Leiber hit a homer with three aboard and Bill Nicholson poked another with two on deck as the Cubs, behind Olsen, slaughtered Brother Terry's crew 1.1 to 0. Three Moores Hill Grads Returned Lawrenceburg, Ind., June 11. Memories of their graduation from. Moores Hill College in June, 50 years ago, were jrought back when three graduates in the 1891 class returned ;o Moores Hill, where they jrew up together, to celebrate .heir fiftieth anniversary. Just the three remain of the graduating class of five. After graduation they settled in distant points, Mrs. Jennie Bain Fleming in Cheyenne, Wyo.; Miss Lillie Carter in Vincennes, Ind., and Miss Rose Robertson in Deputy, Ind. While in Moores Hill they whiled away pleasant moments with Mrs. J. W. French, who made the graduation dresses for the three.
