FOUR-A BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Saving People Is Old Stuff To 'Miracle Pilot' CASCADE, Ida. (UP) — The U. S. Army commended htm for "great determination and courage" lor discovering and rescuing from an isolated snowbound tiny lake In the primitive area five members of, a wrecked bomber cre.w but saving people is old stuff to "miracle pilot" Pen Stohr. Stohr, 40, modest and unassuming, has become the indlsixmsablc man of Ihe almost' inaccessible Idaho primitive area, largest In the Untied Stales. He is Hie one, man who ean fly the area in a blinding snowstorm nnd come out alive. In Ihe wintertime, the lives of no one knows how > many persons depend upon the flying skill of this civilian pilot. The iwo seven- place planes of the flying service that employs him offer the only means of getting supplies and mail to miners, prospectors and ranchers of tlic vast mountainous urea of Central Idaho. .Know Sick Can! lie Removed The isolated inhabitants of the primitive area lead their solitary lives secure in tlie knowledge that their sick and their maimed can be moved lo modern hospitals in a matter of hours. All arc in communication wilh outside world through forest service telephone lines and radio. Stohr would put lo shame the much-publicized "bush pilots" of Canada. Those pilots land on lakes, generally. Stohr lauds and lakes off on "postage stump" fields in deep canyons, where he must know the vagaries of every air current. He uses both skis and wheels. One such field is so short thill in taking off Hie pilot must do n half loop to keep from crashing into the canyon wall. Canadian bush pilots use maps. Stohr wouldn't know what to do with one. '"I know every creek and cnnyon In Idaho, Montana and pails of Oregon and- Washington," said Stohr, not In a manner of boasting but to stress a fact. "1 have to, because when tlie weather comes down I have lo get into Ihose canyons and find my way to Ihe nearest landing fields." Takes Off in Snowslorni Stohr has headquartered out of Cascade, principal town of mile- high Long Valley, which borders the primitive area, for 10 years. Before that lime he barnstormed and flew for the forest service. lie became a pilot 20 years ago. Seldom a day'goes by lhat he is. not called to bring a sick or injured .person from some isolated . nilning camp or ranch to the hospital nt Cascade. He hiisn'i even tried lo keep track of the "mercy Ilights" he's made. This reporter flew with him one day when he made two .such flights. The day before he had taken oif Irom a tiny field in.a snowstorm to bring a seriously ill woman from deep in the primitive area to civilization. Long Valley folks have complete confidence in Stohr. who has never had a crash landing since he started flying. Mrs. Charles Owens, wife of a mine owner, whose property is located in the center of the high- pinnacled Sawtooth mountains, told of the time a storm closed in on them when flying to the mine. Stobr dropped into a canyon at treetop 'level nnd ,by skipping from one canyon; to another finally • found the road to Yellow pine, where he set the plane down for n three-day slay until, the storm had subsided. Stohr told of the lime he sat Screen Stars' New Suits Are 'Pretty' Nice By XEA Service HOLLYWOOD. — Wc-sl Sousl spring stills hnvf gone "|>re!ly' ; this year, wilh detailing, whether 11 be lucks,'gathers, pipings, stitched accents or other trimming notions, as the real news.

JEDSON IN WASHINGTON Oil's Well-Could Be Better BY 1'KTKK KDSON , Courier News Washington Correspondent Experts In the office of Petroleum C'o-ordlnator for War Harold f.. Ickcs are having another- gander at the situation with regard to fuel oil and gasoline supply. Tlic results may be ready In another couple weeks, but the inside Indications now are thai there can't possibly x any casing up on summer driving resirictions, nor any hope that there will be more fuel oil next winter. All this bad news can be announced with certainty in spite of the fact that the petroleum supply line situation has improved considerably In the last few weeks. Delivery of petroleum products to the east by lank car Increased to over SMB.OOO barrels a day during the second week in April. Railroad men say It will go to a full million barrels a day before long. Normal delivery by.tanker used to be. 1.5 million barrels a day to the eastern seaboard, so deliveries will be two- thirds of pre-war average. This Increase In deliveries by tank' car is directly attributable-to the opening of the 2-1-inch pipeline from Texas to Morris City. III., scv- ernl weeks ago. Thai meant the tank cars didn't have In go all the way back to Texas oil fields to be down on a meadow near Landmark, coldest Spot in Idaho in the wintertime, nnd spent three days under his plane until tl)c storm blew over. Another time, a storm broke fast, accompanied 'by a 00- mile-an-hour wind and - Stohr's plane was flung about the sky. After three hoiirs fighting, he finally made the 15 miles to the Ycllowpine field. refilled. The time for a round trip for each tank car was thus reduced from nn average of 17 days to an average of 10 days, meaning lhat they could haul just (hat much more stufl. I'lrei.iNi: NHAK coMt'umoN By July, this big inch pipeline will be completed rill the way to Philadelphia nni) N'cw I'ork, permitting delivery ol as much as MO.OOU barrels a day to the cast by this means. Furthermore. by the end of i!>!3 it is'hoped to have a second, 20- inch pipeline completed, paralleling mid running over the same tight of way as the 2-1-inch, permitting delivery of another 100,000' barrels a day. Add to that the delivery of approximately 200.000 barrels a day by barge, nnd it may begin lo appear that by Jan. 1, IfM-l, deliveries of iwlroleiun products to the east might even be above the 1.5 millloi\ barrels a day which was normal back in 19-11 when all the oil used to come Into the east by tanker through the Gulf and up the Atlantic coast. Bui there are a couple of calchcs in thai, ami here's w-lierc the bad nc\vs comes in IMW WITH Tin: f.'ooo First, when the 24 and 20-inch pipelines ar c completed the 71,000 or more tank cars now hauling petroleum products to the cast over Ihe rails will have to KO back' in service over the long haul, all the way from Texas find back. That will again increase Ihe lime required for one round trip to 17 days and will cut down the amount, thai can be delivered to the cast by tank car from a million or more barrels a day to B00,000 barrels n day.

He didn't hay? those qualities the average retailer has: Pride in his place, in his business—the characteristics of a host. He wanted easy money and he didn't care how he got it. He thought the laws weren't meant for him. We checked his place—not once but Eeveral times. In simple justice, we slernly warned him: CLEAN UP or CLOSE UP. But he just laughed. He thought sve were kidding. So, backed by the thousands of legal beer sellers of this state, by the distributors and the brewers, we filed a specific complaint with the proper law AND HE TURNED IN HIS LICENSE enforcement officers. This committee and your officers work hand in glove. "You're making it too tough," the operator complained. And he closed up his business. The whole community benefited. That's all the story.
