Note How ii the average American and his family being hit by the war and what'a he doing to help Uncle Sam defeat the axis? The answer If provided in a series of articles, the first of which follows.

Allies Blast Jap Bases Near Australia ALLIED HEADQUARTERS, AUSTRALIA. TAP) Allied air forces again have smashed forcefully at Japanese island bases above Australia and beaten off another enemy raid on Port Moresby, a communique announced Tuesday. It listed five Japanese planes as hit by allied fighters defending the allies' New Guinea outpost against a raiding air squadron of nine heavy bombers escorted by 10 Zero naval fighters. Four of the hit raiders were bombers, the communique said, and the raid, aimed at an airdrome, was "without effect" Airdromes also were the objectives of allied raiders over both Lae, New Guinea, and Rabaul, New Britain. At Lae, the communique said, an undisclosed number of grounded enemy aircraft were damaged by attacking fighter forces and at Rabaul bombers scored direct hits on three planes, spread bombs over an area where 20 others were dispersed and started fires in supply dumps. The Australian war cabinet in' a meeting Tuesday in Canberra decided on the personnel, purpose, and functions of a body to be known as the Allied Supply council. Members of the council will be headed by John A. Beasley, minister of supply. The council will serve as a clearing house for matters pertaining to the present and potential availability of supplies of all sorts from Australian sources. Class of '17 Plans Reunion A reunion of members of the Richmond High school class of 1917 is being planned for Satur day, May 3, when a dinner meet ing will be held at the Leland hotel, according to plans announced Tuesday by Robert Watt. A total of 118 persons were graduated, but invitations have been sent to 134, including a num ber of students who were in the group for their four years of high school, but didn't graduate. Three could not be located. They included Kenneth Davis, Roland Dollins. and Murray Snively. Anyone hav ing information about them is urged to get in touch with Mr. Watt Headquarters will be main tained on the mezzanine floor of the hotel from 1 p. m. until dinner time. 1 !; I If ,1 Professor Philip Jessup in the history of international arbitrations that a sovereign state has been found guilty before an international tribunal of committing sabotage and also of presenting a fraudulent defense. Mr. Peaslee is a graduate of Swarth- "People don't eat so much meat," said Theodore Grand, the butcher. "Business is a little better than last year but not enough," said Mrs. Melvin Dodd, the Baker's wife. "Our supply of wax is running low," moaned Anthony Ajello, the candlestick maker. What Is Money? "Money what's that?" inquired the added starter, a label salesman who currently has nothing to sell. And that's what resulted when International News Service set out to find what i3 happening to people who have been making from $3,000 to $7,500 a year, what's happening to their children and their homes under war economy. Has Mr. Grand been hit by the war? Mr. Grand has. "Very much," said Mr. Grand with emphasis. Grand sells meat to hotels and restaurants but right now, he doesn't sell enough of it Wholesale Price Up , "The wholesale price has gone 40 per cent higher and I can't get 15 per cent," he said. "On top of that people don't eat so much meat as they used to." The. Grands have two children, a modest apartment, and an optimistic outlook. "It's war," says Mr. Grand. "What can we expect?" His taxes for last year were pretty high "but on the other hand I didn't make so much money," he said apparently deriving a grain of comfort from that oblique thought Home economies he leaves to Mrs. Grand but he is certain that she is practicing them. The Dodds aren't complaining either. They have one son, with a draft number, and a nephew to help them out in their combination bakery-luncheonette. There was some thought of the son going to college but that's out now, uncertainty as to his future and uncertainty as to their own. Business is a little jerky, supplies get tied up and then snap out suddenly, but on the whole: "Well, it's not so bad, yet" says Mrs. Dodd. Whatever they can spare from their business is going into war bonds, the same can be said for Mr. Grand, and they expect to pull through somehow by paring a little here and a little there on their expenses. One Car Tied Up The Adjellos were a two-car family until recently but gas and tire restrictions along with a home economy program has tied up one of their cars. Ajello, an expert candlemaker with normally good earnings, is afraid that shortage of supplies and lack of demand both will soon clip his income. "We're on blackout candles now," he said, "there isn't much demand for the fancy candles and we're beginning to' run into a shortage of wax." His taxes were high this year but he didn's mind paying them, he doesn't mind shelling out for anything that will bring the end of the war nearer. Pinch Not Too Severe He supposes that the family can pull its purse-strings tighter if a real pinch comes but so far the pinch hasn't been too severe. The label salesman, unidentified, has been hardest hit of all. He had plans for remodeling a place in Connecticut when his trade more college and Mrs. Peaslee, who may accompany her husband, graduated at Earlham with the class of 1910. Professor P. E.

More Firms Buying Bonds 100 Per Cent As additional names of firms pledging 100 per cent support of the war savings bond buying campaign came in Tuesday, city and county bond pledging chairmen urged continued solicitation of per sons and concerns not yet con tacted. - It also was requested Tuesday that all persons who have pledged and received their window stickers place the stickers where they can be seen.

He has two children, one young enough not to know there is a war on and one old enough to take on a paper route and pay his own way on clothing and incidentals. But like the butcher, the baker and the candlestickmaker he has no complaint "What can you do about it?" he shrugs. "Squawking won't win the war." That's the ticket pal squawking won't win the war.

(Central Press Phonephoto.) British Bomb Arms Plant at Pilsen By The Associated. Press British warplanes heavily bombed the great Skoda Armament works at Pilsen in Nazi-occupied former Czecho-Slovakia before dawn Tuesday, dropped flares and leaflets over Vichy, capital of Unoccupied France, and attacked the big war foundries city of Stuttgart in southwest Germany-Stuttgart (population 500,000) is the reported headquarters of the Bosch Electrical works, the Daimler and Benz Airplane Engine factories, and other vital military targets. A German broadcast said that the R. A. F. "attacked" Vichy with incendiary bombs and that French antiaircraft batteries went into action, but Vichy dispatches - said the planes merely dropped propaganda and observation flares. The raiders also flew over Clermont-Ferrand, 30 miles from Vichy. Other R. A. F. planes, carrying out a widespread series of night attacks, pounded the docks at Nantes, France, and bombed shipping off the coasts of Holland and Norway. German night raiders struck back with a 30-plane attack on the English south coast, dropping incendiaries and high-explosive bombs on Cowes and Eastbourne. The British Air ministry said giant new four-motored Stirlings, capable of carrying eight tons of bombs each, were sent on the long foray against the Skoda works, in the second attack there in 10 days. Jap Landing on Mindanao Is Resisted WASHINGTON. (AP) United States defenders of Correg-idor were holding out Tuesday against relentless Japanese bombing and shelling, and a new Japanese landing on the southern island of Mindanao was being resisted stubbornly. TTie air raids on Corregidor sank the 560-ton United States gunboat Mindanao, but there were no casualties among the crew, which normally numbered about 80. The War department communique late Monday said that during the day General Wain-wright's forces defending the island forts still in American hands at the entrance to Manila bay were bombarded for five hours by Japanese artillery, including many 240 mm. or 9-inch guns. The Domei in Tokyo declared that the entire island of Mindanao had come under Japanese control Monday through occupation of Dan-salan, which it described as the capital of the refugee Filipino government and American military headquarters. County Votes Salary Boosts for 7 Deputies and Turnkey Additional appropriations approved Monday in a special called session of the county council provide increases of $12 monthly in the salaries of seven women deputies in county offices and a $21 monthly increase in the salary of the county jail turnkey. Earl Allen, executive director of the Tax Research bureau of the Richmond Real Estate board, attended the session, and submitted a detailed breakdown of proposed appropriations and a statement questioning the legality of adopting them as items of "extraordinary emergencies." Indiana law allows appropriation of items over and above regularly approved budget amounts only where an extraordinary emergency exists. The council approved the appropriations on grounds that increased living costs justified salary increases for experienced help in the several offices. Several officials warned that unless the increases were approved their offices would lose some of their deputy help. Richmond, Ind., Tuesday, May , , Vote in Church INDIANAPOLIS. (AP) Voters of the Fifth precinct of the Fourth ward balloted in a church in the primary election here Tues day. Seth S. Ward, Republican precinct committeeman, got the Tabernacle Presbyterian church for a polling place after failing to obtain a storeroom or house. Merchants1 Meeting To Be in Civic Hall Mayor John R. Britten Tuesday announced that the sectional meeting of retail merchants here next Monday, May 11, at which ceiling regulations on retail prices are to be explained, will be held, in Civic hall starting at 8 p. m. All merchants in Wayne county are urged to attend. The mayor said that he would get in touch with local and county groups to urge them to promote the r ceting, which has been ar-raned for by the regional Office of Price Administration. A wire received by Mayor Britten from the Cleveland branch of the Office of Price Administration announces that a representative of ti e office will be here to address the retail merchants and to answer questions concerning the price regulations. The new regulations become effective May 15. Mayor Britten will preside at the local county meeting. She's Rural Mailman When Ralph Martin, rural postman of near Finlayville, Pa., gave up his job to enlist in the U. S. navy, his wife, Elsie, above, decided to take over his job thus freeing another man for war work. Here she is, on the job, keeping the mail rolling. Frank Howells, county treasurer, Adolph Fossler, county auditor, Russell Robbins, county clerk, Calvin Davis, county recorder, and Harry Patti, a county commissioner, urged the passage of the appropriation. County Attorney John Brubaker, answering a question of a member of council, said there were no political implications in the passage of the appropriation on the day before the primary election. Brubaker explained that he had forgotten the primary when he set the date for the meeting. His suggestion that council could adjourn without acting and meet later was ignored and council adopted the increases. The extra appropriations, which totaled $4,040, included $100 for clerk's deputy hire; $200 for auditor's assistants; $200 for a treasurer's deputy, $300 for a recorder's deputy, and $175 for the county jail turnkey.

Larry Allen s Mediterranean Stories Win Pulitzer Prize NEW YORK. (AP) Larry Allen's blow-by-blow action stories of Mediterranean warfare have won for the 33-year-old Associated Press foreign correspondent the coveted $500 Pulitzer Journalism award "for a distinguished example of telegraphic reporting of international affairs published in daily newspapers in the United States." Thus did Larry, born Laurence Edmund Allen of Mount Savage, Md., who survived the sinking of the British light cruiser Galatea during his assignment with the British fleet, annex honors Monday with announcement of the annual Pulitzer prizes in journalism and letters. Allen didn't know how to swim at the time of the Galatea sinking and that experience showed him the need of such knowledge. He took advantage of a recent leave in this country and now, Swimmer Allen is back in the Mediterranean service. In contrast to Allen's action stories of planes and guns and ships was Elian Glasgow's novel of family life in a sleepy Virginia town, "In This Our Life," which won for the Richmond novelist the $500 Pulitzer award for an outstanding novel. Play Prize Omitted Pulitzer awards in other fields of journalism and letters as announced by the, trustees of Columbia university on recommendation of the Graduate School of Jour nalism omitted the prize for the best original American play, as did the New York Drama Critics Circle, which three weeks ago decided there was no occasion for its annual award for a play. Other 1941 Pulitzer awards: A 5500 gold medal to The Los Angeles (Calif.) Times for the most disinterested and meritorious public service by a newspaper. This was awarded for the newspaper's campaign which resulted in clarification and confirmation of "The Might of Free Press." The Times award grew from the newspaper's insistence upon its right to comment upon court cases in trial. Cited five times for contempt of court by reason of editorial comment cited again for contempt because of comment on the first citation, the newspaper Removal of Nonessential Laws Asked WASHINGTON. (AP) Donald M. Nelson, chairman of the War Production board, demanded of state government representatives Tuesday removal of nonessential laws and regulations which hamper transportation or conservation of war materials. Nelson said one of the principal problems was the confusion ' of state and local laws which limit the size, cargo and other features or commercial trucking. He continued, "We have an acute shortage of paint brush bristles, and we kept running into local ordinances which limit the use of spray painting equipment. We want to conserve the material that is used to make flour sacks, and we can't simplify sack sizes effectively because of the conflicts in state laws governing those Sizes. "Tin plate is of very great strategic importance, but just recently one state passed a law setting standard sizes for baking pans, the effect of which was to compel commercial bakers to buy a lot of new pans. We are trying to substitute commoner materials for stainless steel, but state dairy inspectors continue to insist that nothing but stainless steel be used in dairying and food-processing operations where substitutions could very properly be made."
