r FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1952 THE REGISTER NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS MAY RULE ON MINER WAGES NEXT WEEK No Indication How Putnam Will Decide on Disputed 40c. •y Attainted Pntt WASHINGTON. — Economic Stabilizer Roger Putnam . may postpone until next week his decision on whether a $1.90 daily pay raise for soft coal miners is Inflationary. Putnam was reported today to have about decided to put off the ruling until next Monday or Tuesday. He had promised earlier to do everything possible to reach a decision this week. The case came to Putnam on an appeal from a Wage Stabilization Board decision holding that only $1.50 of the miners' negotiated payraise was approvable under the nation's wage controls* The board held that the extra 40 cento, if paid, would be inflationary. There was no indication of how Putnam would rule. If he upholds the WSB and rules that the extra 40 cents per day can't be paid the miners, they may walk out in protest. A ruling reversing the WSB, on the other hand, would damage that agency's prestige and might lead to some resignations. Discover "Hero" Shared in Loot •y AimlatW PrtM SAN FRANCISCO — Cab driver vAnthony Gelini, who enjoyed brief heroism in the capture of a bank robber, has been convicted of receiving some of the loot.

He put the finger on Charles Frederick Will as the robber and Will was convicted. Then Gelini himself was charged. Both will be sentenced Dec. 1.

Brand new "harlequin" babies who suddenly change color with a sharp line down their middles dividing pale from pink are baffling medical men. The tots regain normal pinkness all over after a short period and everything seems all rigftt with them—but hospital doctors still scratched their heads in bewilderment as they reported the phenomenon today in a medical journal, The Lancet In the past year, 21 babies have undergone the strange change, all while lying on their sides. "Each of us on separate occasions saw a particular baby in the nursery of this hospital undergo a most bizarre and striking color change with which we were previously unfamiliar," doctors at Princess Mary Maternial Hospital wrote in the article. "At the age of three days, she was lying naked on her right side in an oxygen box when the left half of her body became much paler than usual although the right side remained the usual pink," they wrote of one case. " "The dividing line between yie two halves was as sharp and straight as if it were drawn with a pencil and ruler, and it ran exactly in a line down the center of the forehead, nose, chin and trunk. This surprising appearance passed off spontaneously after a few minutes." SHAVEMASTER Find Out For Yourself I Closer, Cleaned fillp M. E. JACKSON, Jewelers MT. VERNON-JEFFERSON COUNTY MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE CO. B. F. CASE, President LUTHER HESTER, Vice-President BLANCHE E. PACKWOOD, Secretory-Treat. Hawkins Building — 1110 Main Street BOX 126 — PHONE 364 Mt. Vernon, Illinois Dear Members: We are pleased to announce that it will not be necessary to make an assessment on your fire insurance risks for this year. We wish to take this opportunity to point out that it is due to your co-operation and carefulness in preventing losses, which make it possible for us to pass up the 1952 assessment as we did in 1950. This constitutes a very substantial saving on your insurance premiums, for by reducing loss you automatically reduce the cost. When this Company was organized almost fifty years ago, its primary function was to provide mutual insurance at actual cost to Its members. By careful selection and supervision of risks the Company has enjoyed steady and uninterrupted growth and is today financially stronger and better able than ever to serve you. Let us pay tribute here to the founders of this Company and to the Officers and Directors following them, who by their long terms of service have demonstrated their faith in the Mutual system. Our present Board of Officers and Directors, realizing that more insurance was needed to cover higher valuations on livestock and farm property, has moved within the past few months to provide this coverage for you. If you feel that you are not adequately insured, call at the Office, or contact the Director in your area, and he will review and adjust your insurance accordingly. Again, may we say, carefulness and co-operation is both our opportunity and our obligation to prevent loss of property and lives by fire. Let us all strive through the coming year to accomplish this task. Very sincerely yours, B. F. CASE, Pres. Luther Hester, V. Pres. Blanche Packwood, Sec.-Treas. Directors: B. F.
