He and other e*-GIs are building homes for ex-OIs. Fcrrlng,. 32. saw iwo and a half years of service with the Navy. He had taken part In three amphibious landings in the Pacific. He knew how tired his buddies were of war and how anxious they were to find a place to settle down. But, when Ferring was released from the Navy, there were few such places. So Ferring got busy. Within five days, the young Chicagoau had rented the site for a manufacturing plant. He had built house trailers before (he war and intended to go on building them. Tut in Savings "When f saw the plight of most reluming vets, (ramping the streets clay after day without finding a place to live," Fcrrlng .said "I decided that many of their could be helped if trailers were produced in quantity.' 1 To accomplish his pur|x>se, however, the former sailor needed capital. He had $8,000 of his own. saved from his prewar business. But he needed more. So he talked to his friends, two of whom invested $5.000 each and became partners in the venture. Finding equipment was made dif- fi"Ult bv nostwpr shortage". Yet. after much shopping, Ferring rounded up enough saws, welding material and paint sprayers to start production. When Ihc first trailer home rolled off Ferring's production line, It was quickly grabbed up by another ex-Gl who said he would make it iiis home for the next two or three years. The trailer was built by Ferring and nine other servicemen, either employees or associates of the new firm—Sportsman's Industries.

The bill calling for the med school has been approved by Ihe House But the House measure stipulate! that construcllon of the schoo would be postponed until an "nde- tiuate" state-wide hospital prograit wns affected. It was this stipulation that figured to come under fire In thc Senate today. More than 800 Mississippi orgaui/.attons havc Ihrowt their weight behind the medica college proposal, and some of then want the college to get priority ovc the hospital program. Mississippi now has a two-ycnr medical college at Olc Miss. Students must complete their medical education at out-of-state institutions. Tlie "adequate" hospital program named by the House bill generally is considered to be thc plnn fostered by House Speaker Walter Sillers. It calls for a series of district hospitals, authorization for maintenance of local hospitals and an out-of-statc scholarship plan for Dr. Petiot Tells Of Slaying Mistresses Of His Victims "Veterans receive priorities for purchasing trailers and first priorities in jobs at- the plant," Ferring said. "The nine veterans, working here Forrestal at present is getting | now are on a profit-sharing basis along with only one assistant secretary—.Sullivan, who is assistant for war.

Six Railroads Offering New Travel Service CHICAGO. Mar. 20. iU.P.>—Six major railroads announced today that on Marcli 31 a new system will permit passengers Tor the first time -in history to travel from const, to coast without stopovers , and without changing sleeping cars. Hie six cast-west roads participating in the new coast-to-coast system are the New York Central, the Pennsylvania, the Santa Fc, Uie Northwestern, the Union Pacific and the Southern Pacific. Spokesmen for the Rock Island Railroad said - it would inaugurate the new service June 2. Under the system stopovers and transfers will be eliminated for sleeping car passengers at the terminal points of Chicago. St. Louis, Memphis and New Orleans- Sleeping cars will be switched from one voiut to another ad passengers will not have to change trains. Railroad officials .said the plan had been considered for 10 years before the war. but wartime travel congestion delayed its adoption. Recently the Chesapeake, and Ohio rriticixed the old transfer system in national advertisements depicting human passengers being forced lo transfer while market-bound pigs were given through service. Under the new system, a passen- -CCT can leave New York on the F/Brnadway Limited at G p. m. (ESTK or on the 20th Century Limited at 5:30 p. m., (EST) nnd arrive in Chicago the next morning. Sleeping cars then will be hooked on to the Santa Fc Chief, which leaves Ciago at 12:01 p. m., (CSTI and will arrive at Los Angeles on the fourth day after departing from New York. nnd I'll need about 45 to 50 more — cabinet Imakers, steel workers and painters." The Chicago man's plant builds the trailer homes from the ground up. They are 23 feet long by eight feet wide. Inside, there arc a living room, kitchenette and a bedroom. They provide sleeping facilities for four. Oil heat, a bottled gas stove and 50-ijouncl refrigerator, either ice or electric, are included in the equipment. Like most other business today, the demand for Fevring's product exceeds th c supply. He soon WAS turning out one trailer a day, and hoping to increase this 'output to ICO a month. But in less than a month, he got orders for 250 from former servicemen alone. It was expected that forces in the Senate today would offer an amendment to Ihe House bill, giving the college program priority over the hospital program. And then the fight would begin. But the medical issue was not Ihe only one before thc legislature A Senate committee on slate offices was scheduled to meet today and begin consideration of Oov. Thomas Bailey's nominee lor the new post of motor vehicle comptroller. The Senate, which must approve the appointment, received Bailey's nomination in executive session yesterday. Speedily, thc nomination was turned over to Ihc committee. McCullcn now is state land commissioner. Thc comptroller will replace the present motor vehicle commission. The plan, recently signed into law, was sponsored by the gasoline investigating committee. This is the committee which brought before the legislature charges of irregularities In connection with motor vehicle law enforcement in thc state.

The evil-eyed physiclnn mid Kelf- desorllx'd lender of nil undewomid rcsislttiice uiuul gnvc Ills nnswcr when tusked by the prosecution why Ills tillesod "1'lylox" Binil! killed the mistresses of their various enemies, I'etlol told how he and his supposed comrades cllinintitcd n Gestft- po spy known ns Jo Ihe Boxer nnd his mistress, Anne Basselt, us well n womnn mimed Annette in the Forest of Marly ont.sldc Paris. He snld the Gestapo man knelt nnd beisBed for his life. "Betore we could kill him one of (lie women pulled a Kim." lie snld, "and we shut her down wllli n tom- my giin. Then we killed him with out; blow of a lend-fllled rnbuci tire. Then we shot the second wom- un mid burled the three of them the forest." Prosecutor Pierre Unpin stitd: "Why did you kill Ihe mislrcsses of these people?" Pellet's face lit up with slrnngc ' ecstasy and he spat out: "Well, what the hell could you do with them?" Composed and almost smug. Pc- tiot told the Asslxos court on the third day of his trial that at least one of his 28 alleged murder victims actually got to Buenos Aires. Stacked around the walls of the courtroom were great heaps of baggage nilcd with clothing and other belongings of the persons Pctlot said lie helped, but whom thc prosecution said he killed. Chief Justice Mr.rcel I,eser asked Petiot, about a Jew named Gusshl- now, first on the list of 2ti. How, he asked, did Ihc Sveugali-cycd doctor account for the fact that Gusshl- now disappeared after visiting Pe- tiot'.s sinister house on thc Hue Seller In 11)42? "Well, people do disappear quite frequently, you know, In these times." Petiot retorted. Unburdened of his quip, he told how Gusshinow asked him for hclf in getting out of thc country. He said Gusshinow stayed overnighl with him, then left by way of Spain with "my friciiti. Robert Martlnclll wlio also disappeared." Later, lie said, he got a letter iron Gusshinow from Buenos Aires. He said he also received several cnblt messages from the refugee, and Urn Gusshlnow's wife got a letter frou him saying that, all was finished between them. I-eser observed dryly that authorities bad been unable to locale Gus- shinow's wife in France, or to get Information from Buenos Aires authorities about him despite cabled inquli ies. "That," Petiot retorted, "is not astonishing. Everybody knows that Argentina Is a German colony." Again Petiot tossed In references to Ills "secret weapon," which he uul snld would kill u iimn at 30 vards He told Clussliltiow. he said: 'II you go to New York and enlist Hie Free Krench forces, pk' call oil the State Departineul and isk them about my secret wrapim, :>eca»sc 1 want lo know what thi'y ire duiiig about It."

The prosecution tried again In elicit the names of IVtlol's comrades in his alleged uiulcriirmiml ot- ly.ation which he referred tti as the "Ply-lox" band. Assuming a martyred expression, he said: "You waul to know what, hap- pi'iH'd to people who fought In the resistance—well, look at me. 1 am annoyed at the stupidity of the (tiieslious some people ask at this trial, especially in Ihe presence of the foreign press, Tlic eyes of tlic world are on this courtroom."
