P. Chew, probation and oarole officer. Last September was the most profitable month for those who toave been allowed their freedom v ender restriction, when they reported earnings of $5,172.25. Last December was their poorest month, . when earnings were only $2,730.96. Mr. Chew said today that it is easier now than ever before to get work for these people. They are urged to work, partly in order that their families' may be taken care of, and are also encouraged to save, particularly during these days of easy money. Record Of Office The office here has been in operation since April 1, 1943. During that period, 32 were paroled and 139 placed on probation up to last Oct 1. On the latter date, the office had 55 active probation cases and 23 active parole cases. The probation and parole system has been in operation in the state for about two years, during which time it has released on parole 1,040 persons and placed on probation 1,700 more, the vast majority of whom are reported to have "made ; good." The 2,740 persos who were given another opportunity in life earned a total of $1,642,986, according vo WJuliam Shands Meacham, chairman of the board; Two of his parolees have gone Into the armed services and three Virginia parolees have been returned to the penitentiary for technical violations, he said, explain ing that they have not committed other offenses, but that their con duct was of such a nature that It was. felt thev should be return' ed. Mr. Chew said he felt that it was better policy to be strict with the parolees rather than, wait until they committed some additional offense against society. Violated Parole , In addition, one parolee was trarMerredtthls diBtrtctrlrom Pennsylvania and was returned lor , violation of parole. : Ten probationers have violated probation, Mr. chew said, and have been sentenced by the courts or ordered to serve previous suspend' ed sentences. Mr. Chew said that Augusta County had only about seven per cent of probationers who had x be sentenced, against a figure of 12.7 for the state. He termed this "remarkable" and said that he be lieved this good record was due - primarily to- the selection of cases toy judges. Judges now consider probation a matter of treatment he said, rather than leniency. The officer Investigates every per. son sent to one of the state's major penal Institutions prior to the time that they would have completed one-third of the original sentence imposed by the court . -All Are Eligible Until Nov. 1, 1942, any one sen tenced for felony got one-half time off for good behavior. Prom that time until the meeting of the last General Assembly, there was no time off for good behavior by those In the penitentiary. Now the law . has been changed so that every-.J:thing is figured the same as Jail time, Mr. Chew explained, so that anyone serving more than two years in a major penal Institution for felony is eligible after one-third of the term and gets one-third off for good behavior. "The probation and parole sys tem has allowed these people o take their places in various com munities and make a new start in life." he -said. "Instead of being charsres on the community, as they would have been had they been incarcerated, they become useful citizens in the nation's time of stress. And instead of being thrown with hardened criminals, as they would have been had they not been iriven another chance, they were , iwniired to adjust themselves to decent, clean, temperate lives. . 0 REPRESENTATIVE BLAND SUPPORTING ROOSEVELT WASHINGTON, Oct. 21.-P-S Otis Bland, (D.-Va.), candidate for reelection in the First Congression al District, has declared himself for the reelection of President Roosevelt in a statement in which he said that he believes most isola tionists will be found with Oover nor Dewey, the Republican candl date.

Gerber said it was "virtually impossible" to estimate the number of . persons not ac counted for. Witnesses said the fire still flar ed in isolated spots over a 50-block district at eleven a. m. (Central War Time) but was under control. An estimated 3,600 persons were made homeless by flames cascading on the heels of blasts which sent tongues of fire towering to a height of 2,800 feet Possibly 10,000 others were evacuated from yet undam aged homes because of utilities dis ruption and the danger of further blasts. , . o .

It was the Philippine Com monwealth President's second proclamation since he came ashore on Leyte with General Douglas A. Mac- Arthur. The proclamation wasn't interpreted as calling for a general uprising throughout the islands, but where Amer ican forces had advanced sufficiently to give immediate military help. President Osmena's message followed a statement by Brigadier General Carlos P. Romulo, resident commissioner to the United States and secretary of information, that he is convinced liberation troops will receive the complete cooperation of the Filipino people. One of the first tasks of the government will be to contact guerrilla leaders who have harried the Japanese and carried on the battle-unheralded and unknown since the fall of Corregldor on May 6, 1942, Romulo said. Filipinos, blacked out for two and a half years by severe Japanese censorship of news, will learn from the forces of reconquest that the united states Congress and President were prepared to give the Philippines its long sought independence even before the July 4, (Continued on Page 2, Col. 5) o EIGHT INCHES OF WATER GOES OVER CITY DAM As a result of Friday's rain, Staunton now has a "superabun dance of soft water, City Manager W.

Meanwhile, Marshal Stalin also has announced the capture of Hungary's third city Debrecen a conquest that broke the back of German resistance in Eastern Hungary after prolonged and furious armored battle estimated' to have cost the Germans and Russians a total of 1,000 tanks. Official Russian silence still enveloped the East Prussian front But this was not a source of surprise here, for when the news finally is released it is expected to be as sensational as the announcement of the Romanian drive in August (Berlin announced last night that Red Army troops had penetrated twelve miles inside East Prussia on an 80-mlle front The Germans also said the Russians in Hungary had rolled 30 miles oeyond Debrecen, reaching the rail town .if Tlszacsege on the Tlsza River some 85 miles east of the capital.)

Two thousand prisoners already had been taken by First Army men who captur ed the medieval city 40 mile3 from Cologne. Despite Hitler s orders to resist to death, the 800 enemy troops surrendered when Lieutenant,General Courtney Hodges' doughboys pressed them into hopeless traps at the fringe after taking the center of the city. seventy miles to the northwest. the Canadian First Army pushed a three-pronged offensive four miles nearer the German strongholds of Roosendaal and Breda in battle carrying over rain-soaked fields above Antwerp. British Infantry and Canadian tanks entered the road-junction of Wuestwezel, 13 miles north of Antwerp on the Antwerp-Breda highway, and sent patrols probing out a mile or two northwest of the town. Two other columns, in twin-drives up the roads to Roosendaal, seized Calmpthout and neaped the Roos endaal Canal. Close In On Pocket - This offensive was the sacond phase of the battle to win use of Antwerp port as a supply base. The first phase was drawing to an end west of Antwerp, with Canadians steadily closing In on the German pocket around Breskens below the Schelde estuary In Eastern Holland, United States forces pushed within 4,000 yards of a German communications strong' point near the Mass River. British troops meanwhile consolidated po sltlons southeast of Venray on the Dutch battlefront, German communications farther south were crippled when Thunder bolts operating with the united States Third Army bombed and breached the Dleuze Dam 25 miles northeast of Nancy, flooding the town of Dieuze and the surround ing countryside with a spreading shallow lake which covered the rail road and highways with two feet of water, American and French troops pushing into the Vosges foothills protecting Southwestern Germany hammered out gains east and north olapturedy enemy counterattacks there and inT" JTJ ,,, -n,,iVuM the Moselotte River bend area. Light Casualties ' United States casualties in the capture of Aachen were described officially at Supreme Headquarters as relatively light Unofficial es timates of the bag of Nazi prison' ers ranged up to 10,000. The Germans threw in two coun terattacks Friday against the Amer lean wall east of Aachen, and apparently were working desperately to tighten their defenses before Co logne. A Berlin broadcast said Amer icans had been beaten back in an attempt to cross the Moselle River at Remich, twelve miles southeast of Luxembourg City. All the troops who crossed the river were killed or captured, said this unconfirmed account In the . struggle to dislodge the German barrier around Antwerp, Allied troops advanced slowly against the Breskens pocket, merg ing the original bridgehead with the main westward drive. A front dispatch said the final phase of that operation was drawing near, and Slavs Budapest trated drive with the right wing of Marshal Rodion Y. Malinovsky's Second Ukraine Army in an ar north of Budapest calculated to slice in half the German line be tween Central Hungary and Sduth ern Slovakia. Malinovsky's left wing was em broiled in a fierce struggle with German rearguards in the vicinity of Szolnok, less than 50 miles southeast of Budapest With report ed chaos within the city, Regent Nicholas Horthy's repudiation ol Hitler seemed more than ever mis timed and misplayed as the Ger mans managed to retain strategic control of the Magyar capital. At Zagreb, which appeared to be the next big objective of the drive through Yugoslavia, the puppet premier of Croatia, Dr. Ante Pave lie, has been reported on the verge of flight for some time. Marshal Tito's partisans have been camping almost on the edge of the city. Good rail routes along the north bank of the Sava from Belgrade cou be exploited for a Russian advance northward to Join with these pa: Usan troops. Southeast of Belgrade, the Rus slan communique said a total of 17,147 trapped Germans were killed or captured in eliminating an ene my pocket STAUNTON TRAVEL BAN IS LIFTED In removing restrictions to travel between Staunton and other sec tions of the state, enforced for several months by the Board of Health on account, of the incidence of a large number of cases of polio myelitis in the state and nearby cities, Dr. A. L. Tynes, city health officer, stated today that "conflicting opinions held by the medical profession in respect to the value of quarantine as a preventive meas ure were well known to the City Board of Health." The board admitted from the first that means of communicating the disease and its control were controversial questions; he said, adding: "'But the board was not impressed with statements on the part of some health officers that during the epidemic of 1935, th worst in the history of the city in question, the schools were not even closed. Nor would this Board of Health assert that the failure to close the schools in the Instance referred to result in the development of even a single case of polio. The Staunton board for years has studied the epidemiology of the disease, observing the commun! cable character of polio, and, re gardless of the conflicting views o: the specialists in this field, prefer red not to abandon the field of observation for that of specula tion." Others' Uncertain The people, too, said Dr. Tynes, "were aware of the uncertain value of quarantine measures, but they did not permit their reliance upon the only preventive measure that offered to be undermined by doubt and a do-nothing policy. Human' ity needs practical men, but It also needs idealists for whom a concern for the common interests is so captivating they are willing to make any reasonable sacrifice lor the common good. This is one of the spiritual qualities which make a people great. It Is only they who can find romance in sacrifices for the public good. "We do not claim that the ef forts of the Board of Health and the people of the city accounted for the fact that the city had but one case of polio during the quar menaced from every side. But said we do believe that in such sacrificial efforts shared by most of the people, their hearts were touched and humanity has grown bigger and better. Here in Staunton, a -city noted for its good will and philanthropies, it has helped to develope an even more notable compassion ate sympathy for suffering humanity and the less fortunate, and a notable respect for the processes of law in respect to public heatlh." After all, said the Health Officer, public health is but the socialized expression of those who do not want to contract disease or com municate it to others. Public Gracious Dr. Tynes said the "gracious manner in which the many hun dreds of people who called the health office and cooperated in respect to traveling or receiving guests was the most appealing experience in my entire professional life. There were instances of sacrifice so-"touch ing, yet so willingly and graciously endured, they would have brought tears to the eyes of those less emo tionally constituted than myself. In all of these cases In every in' stance the people generously made the decisions themselves after the situation was explained to them. There was only one Instance in which the promise was not observed." Dr. Tynes stated that regardless of what may or may not have been the effect of the quarantine upon the incidence of polio in Staunton, "it could not have been car ried out except for the assistance of others. Dr. Kenneth Bradford and Dr. Glenn C. Campbell, mem bers of the board, rendered every possible support and encourage ment Other members of the office staff were untiring and loyal in their intelligent effort to meet the situation, no matter what the de mands upon time and strength. And the city police force rendered valuable assistance in response to requests to investigate cases reported after office hours and during the night. To all of these, and es peclally to the citizens of Staunton who so generously and so gracious ly cooperated in an attempt to do the impossible," the City Health Officer asked The Leader Papers to convey his most cordial and fer vent thanks.! o ROAD TO PEACE CLEAR? MOSCOW, Oct. 21 W) Mos. cows press gave tne cnurcmu' Stalin negotiations proruse praise today, vividly mirroring the good which official Russia believes re sulted- from the long, numerous, and friendly discussions of the two leaders. Editorials said differences still existed between Great Britain and the Soviet Union on certain Euro-Dean Questions, but asserted the road appeared clear towards franv ing a firm hard peace. HURRICANE DID LITTLE DAMAGE IN THIS ST ATE (By The Associated Press) Virginia suffered a minimum of damage last night as the tropical storm which roared like a lion in- " to Florida Thursday came like a lamb across the state and continued to spend itself out in a northeasterly direction. Weatherman Foy N.- .Hibbard of the Richmond Weather Bureau said that little effects were noted about the state as the storm moved across, entering in the region of Emporia. Excessive rainfall was fairly general, however. Clearing weather with diminishing winds was promised for today, with warmer weather in the state this afternoon, fair and cooler tonight Sunday's forecast was for fair and rather warm weather. No storm damage was reported from the Norfolk area, which bore the brunt of the recent tropical hurricane. It was cloudy In Norfolk today. The highest wind velocity yesterday was 35 miles, with two and a half Inches of rain, and tides two feet above normal. The storm passed 40 miles east of Richmond last night about eight-thirty, leaving the city none the worse for the 1.43 inches of rain preceding it. Roanoke had 3 SI inches of rain yesterday; had no damage from the wind. Staunton's rainfall was 2.41 inches. Apples Damaged Apples apparently suffered the greatest damage from Friday's wind and rain, it being estimated that as high as 30 percent of the fruit remaining on the trees had been knocked to the ground. The rainfall, which amounted to 2.41 inches In the 24 hours before eight o'clock this morning, soaked the farmlands and caused some washing. There was also some minor flood ing of secondary roads. Christians Creek near Brands threatened to overflow, highway engineers report ed, and one secondary road was blocked by water in that section late Friday. Throughout the state, heavy rainfall and high winds were reported. With occasional squalls, inter- mlttent heavydownpours and rain generally, the Staunton area Friday escaped serious back-lashes from the tropical hurricane which caused the loss of many lives and millions in property damage in Cuba, Florida and in some parts of the Carolines.
