HfLZICRO'S "Ttn-Tu" BUDGET PUN OQWN 19% MOMTHir Plane Held in Cargo Inquiry B-17 Believed to Be Enroute to Israel Halifax, Nova Scotia, (U.R)—A war surplus American Flying For- tx-ess, which made an emergency landing here Sunday night, was grounded by airport officials Monday' pending an inquiry into the legality of its projected trans- Atlantic flight—-presumably to Is^ rael. Dartmouth airport officials said the plane would not be, allowed to take off until its status was cleared up. The old bomber's car™ go consisted of spare aircraft parts, the official said. Captain I. R. Chandler, pilot of the 4-engined plane, reported it encountered heavy weather and was running short of gasoline when he decided to land at Part- mouth. The plane had. taken off from White Plains, N. Y., 4 hours earlier. •Barney Ross Aboard Crs\y members refused to disclose their identities, except to deny a report that former welterweight boxing champion Barney Ross was among those aboard. The bomber which carried the number NY 7712 M, left the United States at 3:45 p. m. Sunday without filing a flight plan with the civil aeronautics administration. Breaks Ban Officials also said that if the plane is destined for Israel's fight- lug forces it is breaking the U. S, ban on the shipment ol arms to the Holy Land, Airport attendants Ji\ Now York said that the plane was loaded with machinery crates, They believed the cargo was bound for Israel because of the Jewish lettering on "he labels. :rapped by flames In one of the buildings, were killed. The plane was reported to have been an army AT-6 trainer, but when queried about it, the public relations officer at Randolph field said tersely, '-We have no statement to make at this time," and cut off further questioning. WortJey Rudd, an agent of the civil aeronautics authority, said a thorough check of all civil and military airports in this area showed no planes missing. It was known that AT-6 trainers are used at Randolph field in combined primary-basic courses, and that a new clas? is in training. Rudd said, however, that the type of the plane had not been es^ tablished, it was smashed so badly. He said the only clue was the Mystery Ship Hits Building 2 Persons Killed in Plane's Wild Flight San Antonio, Texas, (U.R)—Offi- cial secrecy Sunday cloaked the identity of a "mystery plane" which crashed into an apartment building and killed 2 persons after a wild flight across town. The plane zoomed low over the downtown area shortly after midnight Sunday, scraping a dozen buildings, and narrowly missing 2 hospitals. When it crashed into the apartment building it exploded and set fire to the building and 2 other dwellings. The pilot and Ethel Haines, 60, laundry mark, "R. B. White," found in the pilot's shirt. Meat Supply Hits New Low Problem to Remain Acute This Summer Chicago, (U.R)—A livestock expert said Monday that, considering the demand, the nation's meat supply is the shortest on record. H. M. Conway, market analyst for the National Association of Livestock Producers, said that the supply problem will remain "acute" throughout tho summer. "Considering population growth in the past decade and prevailing full employment, the current prospective meat supply is very inadequate," Conway said in an article in the National Livestock Producer. His estimate of the supply followed a report by the U, S. department of agriculture, which said that livestock and wholesale meat prices last week soared to the highest levels in history. Conway blamed the short supply on the poor corn crop last year and on the effects of the strike this spring by packinghouse workers. He said the lack of corn forced cattle feeders to curtail beef production and slowed up hog feeding. Comvay said high prices for livestock would continue through the summer, and that meat would be short for at least a year. The agriculture department has estimated the current corn crop as the biggest on record, but experts said it would take "some time" for the increased corn supply to be reflected in greater meat production. One Man's Opinion (Continue* from P»« 1) brush-off in favor of Sir William Beveridge, who's about as free of glamor as last year's millinery. Friend of John Winant A day or two later in an interview with the late John Winant, our ambassador to the court of St. James during the war, I mentioned my meeting with Sir William Beveridge, "It might interest ypu," the Lin- colnesque appearing e x - N e w Hampshire governor observed, "to knqw that Sir William is about as close a friend as I have in the world. Not too long ago, as a matter of fact, I was the best man at his wedding to Lady Mary." Bevevidge was described tey Winant as "one of the world's best minds" and he was loud in his praise of the social security program worked out by the commission headed by Sir William. Winant regarded it as workable. Pushed During War A significant fact alluded to by our ambassador was that work on the scheme proceeded without interruption during the war. In fact, Sir William received his appointment from Winston Churchill for the coalition government. The reasoning was that if Britain was to put her full effort into the war, there must be a promise held out for those who did the fighting. There had to be something worth fighting and dying for. Much Ado About Little Memphis, T*nn,. (IJ.R) — When the fire alarm was sounded in a 5-story building all the city's downtown firemen responded, locating the blaze in a motor-driven water pump.

Death grants of $80 will be paid o cover funeral expenses, Special ayments will also be made to vidows «nd orphans, It's (he Same for AH In keeping with the labor gov- rnnient's concept of a "classless ociety," benefits from the com- rehensive program are the same or all adults. Whether an inured person is deprived of his vages through sickness, unern- loyment or retirement, he is en- jtJed to a standard benefit, no matter what his social position or wealth, "The idea behind the scheme," ays a. British government bulle^ in, "is that everyone's needs are he pame in...time of misfortune, and everyone faces the same risHs, f a man's income is interrupted ay sickness or pld age, he still has the rent to pay a,nd a. family —pr himself--to feed." Not Universally inadequate. Beds are tcarc« tnd there is a shortage of at least 40,* 000 nurses. This general situation has led to a proposal that* the health a$« pects pf the overall program be postponed. But the government has taken an adamant attitude. There never will be a more propitious time, it's argued. It's in the face of adverse economic conditions and other discouragements that British socialism moves into this new phase ol her government paternalism, Send Troops to Germany Britain Reinforces European Garrisons It would be a mistake to assume that this "cradle-to-grave social security plan" is being put nto operation with the blessing of all Britons. Generally speak> ng those who still look for leadership to Winston Churchill and :he conservative party are dead against it. Not too long ago I had a visit rom a British woman who would have to be classified in this category, To her the whole scheme was "just some more socialist [overnment foolishness and stupidity." (*)n—An authoritative source said Monday Britain has sent considerable numbers of new troops to western Germany because of the tension in blockaded Berlin. Jet Planes Launched on Ocean Flight B* W or, M*., (#>) —Pointed for troubled Germany in the air force's first jet-propelled trans- AtJantic flight, a group of 15 F80 Shooting Stars roared into Dow air base Monday from Selfridge Field, Mich. As the American planes flew eastward, 8 Royal Air Force jet Vampire fighters landed at Reykjavik, Iceland, after swift flights from Stornoway, Scotland. They are bound for Montreal and New York on the 1st east-west crossing. The 15 American jets were fully armed. A 2 hour lay-over here of the group before the next hop to Labrador was planned. The informant said of The original Beveridge report was published in November, 1942 at one of the most discouraging phases of the war. Perhaps it was just a coincidence but it was a notable fact that the allied fortunes in the war took an almos immediate upturn thereafter. Outdoing U. S. Program The United States News refer; to it as "Britain's $3 billion 'cradle - to - grave 1 social-securitj program." Its yearly cost is fig ured at $300 million, twice a much as Britain's previous socia security and 3 times as mvich a the United States spends pe capita. The obligation isn't quite a heavy as would appear on th lace of it for the reason that it' to be financed in. pounds sterlin rather than in U. S. dollars. Compulsory contributions to th insurance fund by wage earners employers and the self-employed will cover about half of the total cost. It's figured that a worker will pay about $1 a week, his employer about 85 cents, with the remainder coming from government tax revenue. Housewives, children and retired persons are to be included in the over-all program without payment on their part. Inflation Aggravated One anticipated effect will be an increase in purchasing power by Britain's people, with a consequent inflationary pressure on prices and a need for firmer government controls. Benefits available for every Briton desirous of participating include these: Doctor's care, without doctor's bills, whenever needed. Hospitalization, surgery and specialist consultations without charge. Drugs are to be provided at government expense, as well QS glasses, hearing aids, artificial limbs and other appliances. Free dental treatment, including false teeth. Sick benefits to workers will bring $5.20 a week to a single man, $0,90 to a married couple with one child. Mothers Not Forgotten Maternity allowances and grants totaling $109.60 will be paid to employed mothers. Unemployed mothers will get ?32 after the birth of each child. Unemployment benefits will be paid for 30 weeks in one stretch and may be extended longer if no work is available. Single men will get $5.20 a week, married men an added $3.20 for their wives and $1.50 for the first child. Children's allowances of $1 a week will be paid for each child after the first, whether the child's father is working or not. Accident Victims Paid Industrial injury is to bring payments of $11 a week for 2(3 weeks for single men and women, more for married couples. Old age pensions are to be $5.20 a week after the age of 65 for men and 60 for women. Those who work 5 years beyond retirement age get $7.20 a week even Doctors, Dentists Opposed That the health features of the program are not acceptable to anything like all doctors is reflected in the fact that a full 3rd of the British medical practitioners have refused to sign up for public service. As matters stand, many patients face the prospect of having to wait for attention while the too limited number of doctors in the plan are forced to use assembly- line techniques. There's nothing in the law to force an unwilling doctor to join up. On the whole members of the dental profession are even more opposed to the plan than physicians. Few are signing up for public service. Full dental service for everyone appears to be a long way off. Faces Uncertain Future Hospitalization under the plan too faces a somewhat dreary prospect. Hospital facilities are sadly the reinforcements will be flown into Berlin itself. The disclosure came as Gen. Sir Brian Robertson, British military governor in Germany, conferred here with the chief of staff of the ministry of defense, Gen. Sir Percy Hollis, and other service chiefs, Robertson flew here from Berlin Sunday night. No informant would say exactly how many troops have gone to western Germany, or how many will be sent on into Berlin. One source, however, said troop movements to the British zone of Germany "have been taking place over the last 3 or 4 weeks." He made it clear that most of the troops were reinforcements, rather than replacements, * Ackley Woman Dies; Funeral Held Monday Aekley — Funeral services for Miss Gretchen Margaret Muller, 65, were held Monday at 2 p. m. at St. John's Evangelical and Reformed church, the Rev. Frank Kroll, pastor, officiating. She died at a hospital in Independence Saturday due to pneumonia and a heart ailment. Surviving are 2 brothers, Herman and John Muller of Ackley. She was born Aug. 2, 1882, on a Grundy county farm 2 miles southeast of Ackley.
