Hut wo are approaching it with the thought of what can be done about it in peace time, too.’’ Kelly said a “not-too-large’ mittee, representing persons deep interest and keen vision, would have charge of the planning after the preliminary investigation has been made. He conferred during the day with William H. Barber of Harrisville, representing the Michigan Prosecuting Attorneys Association; Dan Patch, the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police; Sheriff William 11. Nestle of Ithaca, the Michigan Sheriffs Association; Allison Webb, of Cadillac, the Michigan Association of Probate Judges, and others. The organizations will be polled, in an effort to obtain complete pictures of juvenile delinquency as seen through the eyes of men actively engaged in controlling it and the state police will assist. In addition, he said. Dr. Eugene B. Elliot, state superintendent of public instruction, agreed to write to the more than 700 school super- ] intendonts and 83 county school I commissioners, and analyze their reports and recommendations on j the subject. Thirty-four other or-, ganizations interested to varying j degrees in child welfare will be asked for their reports, and the) clergy will be nsked to assist, too, j he said. Kelly emphasized he would ask that all of the reports be kept confidential. until they can be assembled into a thoroughly analyzed omnibus document showing extent of the problem in each county, most common types of delinquency and age groups most affected; a study of local conditions contributing to or discouraging youth delinquency. and efforts of local governments to solve the problem A variety of other topic* will be covered in the study, including the war's effect on delinquency; recommendations for attacking It; identification of local groups best equipped to help, and available leadership. Hattie Casualties During 17 Months Of War Are Announced Washington, May 17. (/Pi The armed forces of the United States have lost more than 80,000 men in battle casualties in 17 months of war. This total will bo increased, probably by about 5,000, officers said today, as reports not yet compiled for the last four weeks of the Tunisian campaign add to the army’s lists of killed, wounded and missing. Since the war began, the navy has reported 23,955 casualties in the navy, marine corps and coast guard, 7.218 killed, 4.683 wound­ 'd, and 1 2,054 missing. Army casualties reported through May 7 total 66,942—6,076 killed. 1 2,277 wounded. 24,34 5 missing. 1 4,24 4 reported prisoners. Of the wounded, 4.000 have returned to duty or recovered sufficiently to be discharged from hospitals. These army totals included two lists made public today, containing the names of more than 1.000 soldiers wounded in the European, North African, middle eastern, Pacific and Southwest Pacific theaters. Approximately 900 of these were in North Africa. Of the army's total of 14,244 prisoners and 24.346 missing, all but a small number were lout in the Philippines. More than 3.000 have been reported missing in North Africa, and most of these are presumably prisoners in Italy or Germany. A total of 4.566 merchant marine casualties since September 1941 was reported yesterday by the navy.

MASTERS Written for XEA Food fads are out for the duration. In the presence of real food shortages, people must eliminate superstitions and false notions in order to get adequate nourishment. Most of these superstitions are ridiculous, and a few may he actually injurious. Such fads have their origin fundamentally in the likes and dislikes of the individual, and others are foisted upon a gullihle public hy pseudoscientific and fradulent promotors.

You know, Kay Francis always In a drawing room Anvwsy the euests gawked ing an offensive which had been virtually continuous for the past 140 hours. The American bombers made their mass attack on Lorient’s harbor and the adjacent U-boat base at Keroman, but also dropped bombs effectively on Bordeaux on France's South Atlantic coast. The Thunderbolts made an offensive sweep over the Cherbourg peninsula. Liberators Raid Bordeaux A “large number” of enemy fighters was destroyed in the clear bombing weather, it was said, and at least two were brought down by accompanying fighters, while fourteen of the bombers, including four four-engined planes, were missing. American four-engined Liberators flew 500 miles to raid Bordeaux the longest flight yet made by heavy bombers of the U. S. air force to attack European targets from English bases. Brig. Gen. James P. Hodges, commander of the Liberator wing which carried out the Bordeaux mission, said that “This is the first time Liberators have attacked in force” from England. The Rome radio, in a broadcast recorded here by Reuters, quoted reports from Paris that Bordeaux was without electricity, gas and water tonight as the result of the ra id. The Vichy radio said in a broadcast recorded by the Associated Press that 1 4s persons were killed and more than 2 00 injured by the bombs which fell on Bordeaux. The fliers who gave Lorient and its C-hoat pens the seventh American pounding of the war said they saw their bombs explode squarely on the target. The whole waterfront was pock-marked with bomb bursts, they said. In some places as many as 100 to 150 Focke-Wulfs were reported hurled into the fight in a desperate attempt to ward off the attacks. When the basis of the prejudice is a dislike for a food, it is possible to correct the prejudice by re-educating oneself for a food—a feat which can usually be accomplished in a very short time by associating the food with the sensation of satisfying the appetite. It may be of interest to list and explode some of the food-mvths current In our time: Common among them is the idea that it is bad practice to eat protein and carbohydrates during the same meal. There is no basis in fact for this assumption. The vast majority of healthy people throughout the world eat the two together, and most foods contain both in single and inseparable form. FACTS ABOUT MEAT Another public nuisance is the notion that meat is bad for the kidneys and causes high blood pressure. For normal persons this is untrue. Meat is harmful only when the kidneys are so damaged that they cannot excrete nitrogen products, and in certain kidney disorders meat is prescribed in large amounts. The Eskimos live on large amounts of meat and fats and have fewer of these disorders than we do. Many people believe that fish and Ice cream eaten in the same meal are sure to bring on indigestion. From the point of view of the gourmet, such may be Ill- advised, but there is no physiological basis for any incompatibility. It has often been said, too, that water should not be taken during a meal, but since foods must be absorbed in liquid form, some water-solution during meals is needed. Great quantities of water cut down on the appetite, to be sure, but do not impede digestion. ROUGHAGE NOT NEEDED The matter of roughage in the diet has became almost holy canon. Rather than being necessary for good bowel function, rough food can cause severe irritation of the bowel and aggravate constipation. The amount of residue in a normal diet Is usually sufficient for ordinary bowel function. The recent passion for eating vitamins of all sorts in pill form is wholly unnecessary in the presence of a balanced, normal diet. People everywhere tend 1° px* aggerate the therapeutic value of diet in the simplest disorders, such as colds and the acute contagious diseases of childhood. With these, the acute phase is so short, the appetite so impaired, and the connection of food so remote that diet is of not the slightest importance. Mrs. John Rasmussen. Mrs. Larson and Mrs. Ed.
