SPORTS PARADE By OSCAR FRALEY United Press Sports Writer New Y«rk, (U,R)—Bobby Feller is proving to be an $80,000-a-year. lemon for the Cleveland Indians and Bobby Lemon is proving to be quite a $20.000-a-year fellow. Feller blew his 10th game recently but Lemon c'ame on to score his 13th triumph against the same 7th place Browns and hold the Indians in first place. Replies to Iowa Editor Now, before anybody gets the idea that Old Fearless is picking on a nice young Feller stil trying to consolidate his first million, I'd like to explain that this simply is rebuttal to the remarks directed at me by an Iowa editor. Remarks influenced, no doubt, by the fact that after his Sunday defeat of last week Feller was described as an overpaid pitcher — and just happens to be from Iowa, also. I reported that around the dugouts they were saying Feller's hat size is too large and that he has too many outside interests. Ye editor insisted Feller had abandoned "most" of his outside intereste; cancelled all autograph parties for Feller's book, "Strikeout Story;" that Feller was not unapproachable, and that Old Fearless sounded like a reporter trying to get even for a slight. Never Slighted First, Feller has never slighted me. After listening to his many "admirers" around the league I didn't give him a chance. Second, I reported only what they were saying about his hat size, and believe me, brother, they're all saying it. And while he may have stopped autographing "Strikeout Story" how about his new tome, "How to Pitch?" The question mark is mine— although some critics will tell you it should have been in the title.

Y. 9 remiums Expire— Procedure for Extension of Term Insurance Given Inside Washington Movy to Make Guam a Bristling Armed Fort Special to Central Press WASHINGTON — The navy is preparing to spend 800 million dollars to make the island of Juam in the Pacific an armed fort second to none—and that goes in event of an atomic war, too. The service has on hand 83 million dollars to begin its formidable task of making Guam a "Gibraltar of the Pacific." Actually, use of the island is not expected to be so great as originally planned, but it's still the projected stepping off point for the supply forces to be used in event of an emergency in the Pacific. Vice Adm. R. B. Carney says that the Guam development today is about 50 per cent of what had been contemplated in 1945. It is probable'that the long-range of newly developed bombers de- MOVIE By MAJOR THOMAS NIAL Nobody was surprised when congress extended 5 year' term insurance for another 5 years. Here's what that means in terms of your own term insurance. (It has no meaning at all if you have converted your insurance to one of the permanent forms). When your branch of the service sold you national life insurance—almost every serviceman bought some, up to a maximum of $10,000—the insurance was good for 5 years. It was meant to be protection against the hazards of war. When the war dragged on and on it looked as though it would still be going by October 1945. So in July, 1945, congress extended the 5 year period for an- VETERANS' GUIDE REVIEWS By CARL WRIGHT The passing of time is a matter of life and death to Ray Milland in Paramount's suspense drama, "The Big Clock," showing currently at the Cecil theater, with Charles Laughton co-starred.

In any event, the navy is concentrating on underground fuel tanks and ammunition depots— this in preparation s h o ul d the world again be confronted with war. * * » • "FLOATING ISLAND" —The navy's new 65,000-ton carrier, authorized in the closing hours of congress, will give the United States a "floating island" base from which devastating attacks against any enemy could be launched withiii days — perhaps hours — of the outbreak of any new war. Military men agree that this country's chief hope of survival in event of an atom-bomb attack would be a swift counterattack severe enough to immobilize the enemy's bases of operation. Outlying United States bases in Alaska, Greenland and elsewhere could mount such counterattacks but only if they happen to be within warplane range of the enemy. On the other hand, the new super cai-rier could dash to any point on the world's oceans and then launch its A-bomb-carrying aircraft. This way there are few points on the earth's surface which could not be reached. The new flat-top 50 per cent bigger than the largest warship now afloat, will carry multiengine planes capable of carrying up to 10 tons of bombs.

S. ARMY STYLE DRESS OXFORDS • INFLATION SIGNS — Presidential economic advisers are warily watching the nation's price index for signs of another burst of inflation. There are several indications that prices and wages are going up, but whether this portends runaway inflation is at present debatable. In recent weeks, top corporations granted another round of wage increases. Some, like General Motors, were pay boosts tied to the Bureau of Labor Statistics price index. However, none of them was given gratuitously. Price increases swiftly followed. With leading corporations setting the pace, it was felt that smaller firms would be forced to follow suit or face increasing competition for mate- A SURPLUS RELEASE DIRECT TO THE PUBLIC Made to conform to rigid specifications Identical to Navy Oxford only in Brown.

Nevertheless, there are still signs that the threat of uncontrolled inflation is being counteracted. Although consumer credit it at an all-time high, buying power is also up. ^Cutlet WAR SURPLUS STORE Those who got their insurance after Jan. 1, 1946, would have to convert within 5 years. Now those 5 and 8 year periods are about to be running put. I mean, if a veteran got his insurance in November 1940 his 8 year term will be up this coming November. Starting in October, the number of policies which will run out will increase from hundreds to hundreds of thousands. If congress hadn't passed an extension o! term insurance these policies would have to be converted to permanent forms before the term ran out—or else they would expire. The extension means that any veteran with a term policy may extend his Insurance for another 5 year period—but at a higher premium. How much higher? Say you were 21 when you went into the navy and first got your insurance. You paid a premium of $6.50 a month for $10,000 worth. That was in January, 1941, which means your 8 years will expire this coming January. You'll be 29 years old then. The new premium will be $7.00 a month for $10,000. In other words, the new premium will depend on your age and the time your term runs out. The VA does not automatically extend your term insurance. It is up to you to do it. Sixty days before your deadline (the deadline will vary, naturally, for almost every veteran) you'll get a notice from the VA explaining that in order to keep your insurance you'll have to either convert or take out a new term policy with a higher premium. Another notice will be sent you 30 days before the expiration date. You'll have to go to the nearest VA office and get a form, which is just now being prepared at VA's central office. Or you can write for the form. I'm told the form will be short and easily filled out. Then you send the form to your VA branch office together with 1 I month's premium at the new rate. To learn what that rate is you'll have to go to your nearest VA office—or write. If you write, be sure and say how old you are and give your birthday. The form, plus the 1 month premium, must be postmarked before midnight of the day your 8 or himself.
