Weeks ago Allied airmen turned from strategic to tactical bombing—from German cities to German airdromes and railroads. Still, they refused to abandon their attacks on Berlin I'ivotnl City There's a reason; The city is a bee hive of war work. A London German language newspaper estimates that of all the Nazi workers employed in essential industry in 193D, 12 per cent lubnrcd In Berlin factories. !n firmament output, Bcr- lin Is surpassed only by the Hhlne- land and Ruhr districts. Tliirty- eifjht per cent of the nation's elcc- ; trical output and 11 per cent of its heavy machine industry nre massed in the sprawling metropolis. Transportation has become of su- , preme importance to tlic German war machine—what with the imminence of invasion and Allied tactical raids. And 13 per cent of nil Germany's locomotive output is m.'issed in its capital. The London paper discloses that In the production of bomb sights, gun sights and I all kinds of precision instruments, the capital 'is far ahead of any other Nazi city. .' ' . Berlin also is the second inland port of Germany with three big harbors'. Of its five freight yards, one is—or was—capable'of handling -,4000 cars a day. In Berlin and its surrounding, territory arc scattered : 21 power stations, gas works and •' water works, 25 aircraft plants and 55 machinery and arms plants. Pour huge factories turn out clicmicals and four others''pa'rachutes. '"'. Discontent I'rcyalfeiiti i, ; . \ Germany's rail facilities being what,they are, those'industries are pinned down in Bcrliiv^urjable to movc.^But most of the'Reich's ministries and administrative offices haVe:• long 1 ..since; been shifted to nearby cities. Breslau,^which/ is —•»- <}&j«l trip size oi ''"r\ti& bu rg li,' itSs; J i 11 •"'.• frar'Uculiir, ,'bcc'ome ' an understudy to the German capital. ' Berlin's population of 4,200,000 has been pared to an estimated 3,000,000 by death and evacuation. Of those, some 2,000,000 are believed'to be engaged directly in the war effort. ' ' They're Miot' a happy lot, those Berliners. Frequent reports have scoped but "or air-light Germany telling of strikes and general discontent in the first city. But in Hitlerland, civilians may have their woes, but their 'Nazi masters have guns. ' Berlin has teen attacked from the air some HO times, all told. Cologne runs it a close second with roughly'130 raids. But neither Cologne hor any other German city can approach Berlin in the number of bombs with which it has been hit. In the 21 weeks ending May 10. '1Q.OQQ tons of explosives were showered on the city. Thai's an average of 240 tons a clay or 10 tons an hour, every hour of the day and night. U. S. Airmen Carry On Bombs have .been plowing Into the city for four years. The It. A. F. attacked it 35 times :n 1040, and 18 times in 10-11, It turned to other targets in 13-12, but swarmed b^ck over the city lost year. Now, except lor Mosquito raids, the British have left Berlin to the mercy of AmerU itV-iui daylight raiders. , Actually, however, British Mosquitoes carried out the first two daylight raids on the city, back in Jannary 30lh, 1943. Tlic first hit the city at the precise moment when Hermann Goering was to begin a broadcast speech in observance of the 10th anniversary of Hitler's rub. "lie second struck just before 4 p. tn. when Propaganda Minister Goeb- bcls was to address a gathering in Berlin's 'BporUpalist. What came to be known as tho battle of Berlin began November 18, 1913, and closed December 30. fn thai period, the E. A. P. destroyed 17 per cent of tlic city's buildings and hit 98 industrial plants and 30 government offices. After that, the U. A. P. turned to other matters and American daylight raiders took over the job of hammering at tlic heart of Hitlerlana. Altmeyer Urges Social Security Include Farmers GOP Group Would Raise Price Control On Fruits, Vegetables By United I'ress Chairman Allmcycr of the Social Security Board proix>ses a scheme to give farmers the same social security benefits as industrial nnd commercial workers. Altmeyer, In the current Issue of tlic Social Security bulletin, contends that the nation's 12 million farmers could be included in the plan with little difficulty. He says the biggest problem would be to get reports on farmers' earnings and collect contributions. The contributions could be made along with the farmers' income tax payments. Altmeyer adds that thos p who don't pay income taxes could pa\, on the basis of the estimated value of their work. y Kccii Prices Abreast Wages On Capitol hill, two'GOP congressional groups have come forth with general recommendations to extend the Price Control Act. They •Uso suggest a few changes. The House Republican Food Committee would like to remove a)!' fresh fruits and vegetables from price control. And it would like to have thn court review grievances. i It also proposes incresases in prices and rents to correspond with •my wage increases the President may authorize. Another suggestion Is that tile War Pood Administration control all food activities. Tlic Senate food group rccornmends Improvement., in procedural administration. But it will make t)o comment beyond stating that there should be more fairness in the administration of price control. Tivo Congressmen Just back from South America say that the Good Neighbor,: 'policy might suffer a damaging blow-'if President Roosevelt wwc not 're-elected.'.'. ' ' ' .. They ar e Representatives • 'Pete Jarman of Alabama and ' Robert Chiperfield of Illinois'. They tpid newsmen that many Latin Americans consider Mr. Roosevelt the personification •' of the United Stales. Thev added that they assured all officials with whom • they talked that the Good Neighbor policy wns a permanent institution, and would continue no matter who wins tbe November election. Jarman is a Democrat and Chirf erfield a'Republican. Chiperfield said that Latin Americans were disappointed by Ihe withdrawal ol Wendell Willkie from the presidential race. . Dcwey Gains In Oregon In Oregon, Governor Dewey of New York has emerged as a 12 to 1 Republican presidential favorite. Incomplete returns from yesterday's elections show Dewey leading other GOP possibilities. Former Governor Stassen of Minnesota is next. The Oregon delegation to the Republican convention is untn- structeti. But observers 1 believe it wil take the hint from the primary returns. President Roosevelt picked up the 14-man delegation to the Democratic convention In Oregon. Republicans have rcnominated all four of the state's GOP congressmen. The only Democratic contest finds Lester Shcely holding a slight lead over L. N. Granoff. On (he petroleum front—the petroleum administration announces that an all-time high production of oil has been certified to the oil producng states for June. However, the administration says that civilians won't benefit from this. The Increase is a result of an expanded construction program.
