Main St. Phone 2912 Uy I.KK K1KSCII Hulled 1'ress Stuff Correspondent WASHINGTON (UP>~-Tlie immense task of finding half-K-mtl- lion officers to lead the greatest army in the nation's history has been virtually concluded tinder the supervision of' a former Chlcl of Staff—Gen. Malm Craig. The fact thai Craig Is the taisl known of the five four-star generals now on active duty, is diie primarily lo his position as head of the uUni-secrctivo War Department personnel board. Itc was made a full general automatically in 1935 when he was appointed Chief of Staff, nnd retained his rank upon his recall to active duty in September. 1941. Only other Army officers In active service now wearing four stars of a full general are George C. Marshall, Douglns MncArUmr, U wight D. Elsenhower, and Henry If. Arnold. Craig's board supervises all commissions granted to soldiers from civilian life nnd all officers' promotions. During his tenure the roll of of officers has expanded from ubout 100.000 to BOO.OOO for the Army's peak strength of 1,1 00.000 men. Hoard Kcpl Secret Activities and names of members of the board are kept secret, in order-to eliminate all political Influence In awarding commissions or promotions. On the day of Craig's retirement as Chief of Stall. Aug.. 31, 1939, Hitler's armies were massed at the Polish border, and days of peace were at an end. In September. 1041. when United Slates' entry into the world conflict appeared Inevitable, Craig, then 07 years old, was recalled to active duty and appointed head of the personnel Ijoard, a big job in an expanding army. .To Ills colleagues Craig, who wns born at St. Joseph, Mo., is known as the one Missourian who never said. "Show me." He has always been too busy teaching "the other fellow." The son of an Army officer, he attended West Point where his scholastic grades were not particularly outstanding. He did make gridiron history, however, by kicking a field goal while running with the ball. 'Soldiers' Soldier' As a cadet he was "a soldier's soldier"— muscular, square-Jnwed, husky and keen on discipline. Soon after graduation he won the gratitude of Sim Francisco's Chinatown when lit: "stowed away and sorted out" a horde of Chinese babies after the earthquake in 19QG. In World War I, he served successively as chief of staff of the 4]st Division,, the First Corps, and the Third Army. He saw action in some of the most bitter battles in France and emerged with the Distinguished Service Medal and five decorations. Craig remained after the Armistice to "wind up the watch on 'the Rhine" as Chief of Staff of the Army of Occupation. He returned lo the States in 191S and began n t,K- ties; oft peacetime assignment's. In October, 1935, after n good game of golf—he still shoots In the low 80s - Craig pulled into the driveway of his home to be told by an excited wife thai President Roosevelt lind just appointed him Chief of Staff. He immediately hurried lo the War Department to report for duty. Buttled Congress While Hitler and Mussolini wero having their way in Europe, Craig was fighting with Congress for fund: to modernize the Army. Many Congressmen grumbled that mobilization was a simple process and maintenance of a larger Army "too damned expensive" for a country at peace, but Craig answered that the United States had had a war about every 25 years and another "was about due." In the end, he won his fight for increased appropriation. When the time came for Craig to step down as Chief of Staff, he recommended Marshall us his successor. Marshall was then Deputy Chief of Staff. Craig was impressed by his abilities. Marshall was appointed over 20 major generals and 14 other brigadiers then In the Army. Craig has n brother, Maj. Gen. Louis A. Craig, nnd a son, Col. Malm Craig Jr. Onion Shortage Broken As Crop Goes On Market Plenty of onions for nil purposes and for all who want them is welcome news to Mississippi Counly meal-planners who have been 1111- nblc lo buy them liUely. With local shortages broken by an cvcr-lncrcasihir volume of this year's crop moving from farm to markets, folks who like the additional flavor of onion no longer have to do without or limit the quantity they buy, tic-cording to Ernest F. Franks, Area Supervisor, Office of Distribution. Until a few weeks ago the slliiHllcm w;is different with scarcely enough onion uvallablc to bring tears lo the iivc-rugc eye. There nearly always Is a shortage period, however, bctwecii the time n seasonal crop is harvested and a new crop is ready for market mid lo onion eaters this year has been no exception. ' ; Last year's crop wns lighter than normal and heavy military demands for dehydrated onions plus additional quantities needed for iinny camps didn't leave very large amounts for civilians. Supplies now coining to market from Texas, Louisiana, California and Georgia Indicate an Increase of nearly 50 per cent over the 1943 cro)> and everyone on the home food front is being asked to buy and cat more onions.

Well, Fat Boy, they've fallen — and tfiere are plenty more on the way! With plenty of giant bombers to bring them — and well-trained crews to see they reach their mark! And back of these aerial armies is the productive power of free men and women — multiplied many times b'y electric power — turning the wheels that turn all trie weapons of war. And back of this abundant electricity is trie liard worlc of the folks who man and manage the nation's self-supporting, tax-paying light and power companies. They provide over 80% of America's power.
