· 6 Thursday, Jan. S, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MAY REVERSE EGG SURPLUS Shortage Before Year Ends Thought Possible By The Associated Press Despite a surplus of eggs now flooding markets from coast to coast poultry leaders Thursday envisioned an acute egg famine in many parts of the country before ·the year ends if prices continue to decline while feed and labor costs rise. Poullrymen reported many eastern and middle western farmers were selling; their flocks because under-ceiling prices did not cover production costs and fear was expressed that so many would be disposed of there mirht be an eg? shortage within a few months. High feed prices were said to be making poultry men skeptical about the number of chicks which will be raised during the year for laying hens. C. F. Parrish, North Carolina extension service poultry expert, said: "Farmers increased poultry and egg production--went all out--at the request of the government and ·now will be forced to sell.orlake a financial licking unless some.:'.. thing is done." Saying the northeastern states now have the greatest surplus ol eggs in 25 years, President Foster P. Tabb o£ the Maine poultry co- · operative said the over-supply and falling prices "will result in scores of poultrymen being forced out of business." On the west coast poultry mei of California and Oregon reported surpluses. No esi famine was seen in California, however, unless the weather is unfavorable. Harry Knudsen, president of th Nebraska State Poultry associa tion, said his state was "not muc better off" than the east. Indiana State Egg Board Presi dent Thad Macy declared: "If the present condition is riot corrected, eggs will be $1 a dozen in Indiana : by next summer and the state will suffer a severe shortage of poultry meat." .;/ A regional food distribution administration spokesman in Chicago, also speaking for the industry, said some flocks may have to be liquidated due to diminishing feed supplies but he discounted j any possibility o£ an egg famine " in that section. INDIAN GUNNER--Set. Gilbert Eagle weather (above) of Rosebud, S. Dak., said to be the only full-blooded _ Sioux Indian serving with the' V. S. 8th army air force in the European area, mans a \vaist gun in a flying fortress. He is credited with shooting down a German ME-110 during a raid* on Munster. I Boy Scout Leaders of Wright District Meet Eagle Grove--Plans for future Boy Scout activities in the Wright district were made at the regular meeting of the district committee in Eagle Grove Wednesday night. These included a scoutmasters' round table meeting and board of review in Clarion Thursday evening and a board of review in Eagle Grove Tuesday. A court of honor will be held Feb. 9 in connection with the regular monthly meeting of the district committee at Dows or Clarion. A new Cub pack is being organized at Rowan and plans are under way for the organization of a pack at Belmond. ' It was announced that all troops are carrying on a continuous collection o£ newspapers and maga- zunes in connection with the current national drive for these salvage materials. Plans were also made for the celebration of Boy Scout Anniversary Week, Feb. 8-14. The district will have a gooc delegation of scouters and their wives at the annual meeting of the Winnebago council at Mason ""Uy Jan. 20. Scout leaders from Belmond, larion, Dows, Wpolstock, and Eagle Grove were in attendance. F. Ross.Henry, chairman of the district, presided at the meeting. F. R. Is Still Trying to Shake Grippe; Stays in White House Quarters Washington, (JP) -- President Roosevelt, still trying to shake of£ the effects of the grippe, remained in his white house quarters again Thursday and continued work on his annual message to congress. He had one brief appointment. Admiral Harold R. Stark, commanding American naval forces in the European theater, saw him to say goodbye before returning to his command. Presidential Secretary Stephen Early said Mr. Roosevelt's Friday morning press conference would be canceled. Engle Believes Japs Should Never Again Be Allowed to Come Here Washington, (U.PJ--Representa- tive Clalr E n g l e , (D.-Cal.), warned Thursday that the United States must never permit Japanese immigration after the war. 'The 120,000 Japanese and Japanese-Americans now in this country provide a problem without a solution," said Engle, whose district contains 2 Japanese relocation camps that have been the scene of rioting--Tule Lake and Manzanar. He said the problem was complicated because the Japanese "do not assimilate," but remain Japanese. "They do not become Americans--in fact by their mode of life they become a threat to American standards," he said. Though a frequent and sharp critic o£ the war relocation authority, which was set up to facilitate movement of Japanese American*. out of the west coast area, Engle conceded that "probably the WRA policy of spread- is them around the country is the best way available to handle our Japanese." 'I do not feel they should ever again be permitted to congregate n California," he said, "the feeing against them is so intense that [ really believe it would be dangerous," INFANT DIES Miller--Funeral services ior Roberta Marline Bowles, age 3 months and 22 days, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Marlin Bowles o£ Perry, were to be held Thursday afternoon at the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. William Meyer of Miller. She was stricken with pneumonia. She leaves her parents, and one sister, Clara Patsy. WILL FAY DIVIDEND New Hampton--A 4 per cen' dividend will be paid at the annua' meeting of the stockholders of the Security State bank here Jan. 18 FORGERY CLAIM TO BE PROBED Assert Hopkins Letter on Willkie Is False Washington, (£)-- The disputed Hopkins letter" relating to the possibility that Wendell Willkie may again be the republican presidential nominee this year, will be investigated by a federal grand jury, Assistant Attorney General Tom C. Clark announced Thursday. Clark, who is in charge of the justice department's criminal division, said a District of Columbia jury will begin the investigation next week of circumstances surrounding publication of the letter, which Harry L. Hopkins has described as "a forgery." The letter in question, bearing Hopkins'. name, and address to Dr. Umphvey Lee, president 01 Southern Methodist university at Dallas, Texas, was recently made public by C. Nelson Sparks, former mayor of Akron, Ohio, who iaid he was satisfied about its authenticity. The investigation, Clark said, is jeing made to determine whether. here has been any violation of ' a ' ' ' section o£ the district code which makes it a criminal offense to make or publish a forgery with intent to injure another. ·; Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy.

I THE WAR JOB · 1 iS a I !i 4 LITTLE GIRLS RUSSIAN HEROES Gave Gestapo Worries by Underground Work By EDDY GILMOKE Moscow, (JP) -- Marshall Stalin, who in the course of the war has , greeted all kinds of people from chiefs of state to simple Russian peasants, is looking forward to shaking the hands of 4 little girls who have become supreme patriots. These girls are named Svetlana, Lily, Galina and Valentina. The story of their underground activities is thrilling all Moscow at the moment. They were in the province of Kharkov during the nazi occupation and, in a small way, they carried on a campaign that gave the gestapo plenty of worry. · All 4 are members of the young pioneers league--an organization of the soviet open to girls 10 to 14 years old. During the occupation they made a solemn oath to wear their red ties. This they did .by hiding them under their dresses. But their allegiance did not end with the wearing of red lies. They produced a "wall newspaper", which they pasted up in a - remote section of the city where 'German guns had blown down most of the buildings. Once the paper was up the little girls would go along the streets and say to soviet women. "Auntie, I know where you can find some wood for your stove. Look over by the ruined houses." In this way they drummed up quite a bit of circulation for their paper. At another lime they pasted up pictures of Lenin. Stalin and President Kalinin. They drew and posted some childish but never- .·· theless unmistakably rude cartoons of the gestapo and German teachers. They organized a meeting of children on a cliff overlooking the Kharkov zoo and audaciously sang the "Internation- ale." Once they decorated the graves of unknown Russian dead. A German soldier caught Valentina in the act and punished her with a slap in the face. A soviet official who heard of their deeds and brought the news back to Moscow said the girls still were getting out a paper when he met them and they bashfully tried to hide their ink-stained hands. Their ties this time were around their necks an approved pioneer fashion. Svetlana was small and thin in a palched winter coat. Galina was round faced with bright childish eyes and wearing a knitted bonnet. Valentina was short and laugh- MILLIONS HERE ^ EXPECTED ATTACK It happens every year.

Battle of San Vittore Is Described By REYNOLDS PACKARD United Press Slaff Correspondent On a Mountain Overlooking San Vittore, Italy, Jan. 5. (U.R-- Down below us in the town of San Vittore the snouts of German machine guns stick out ,of the windows ot houses and the nazis have, hauled mattresses to the roofs to make a fortress of every home. Our troops are about to start a push for the town. 'Boom, boom, boom!" That's our heavy artillery. "Rat-a-tat-tat!" That's our A-36 planes strafing Jerry. Our commanders know the layout in San Vittore pretty well, because Maj. Raymond JSricksen of Minneapolis has led a patrol in there and returned to report. Tbe Germans are manning all the lower-floor windows of the house with machine tun crews that sweep the streets, he said. Snipers are behind almost every chimney pot and balconies and attic windows have been buttressed with mattresses. Jerry is going to make a fight for the place. Our patrol decided the only way .to get at the Germans was with hand grenades. Any place they found an open window or door they pitched in a grenade, and came back to report that several houses were blown up and so were all the Germans inside of them. It has been a tough fight across bad terrain to get up here within shooting distance of San Vittore. An u n u s u a l combination of American and Canadian troops has done the job.-The group was formed to foster American-Canadian relations in the field. It consists of an equal number of Americans and Canadians from high officers down to the last private. In the last 2 days the Canadians and Americans have stormed and | captured 3 tough mountain peaks | to clear the road to San Vittore. Just to the left oE the town a team ol combat engineers--the boys who work and fight at the same time--are trying to throw a bridge across the valley between "Banana Peak" and "Orange Peak," so-called because of their shape. Jerry dynamited the bridge as he retreated, and now the en- fineers are trying to build another. It's a tough spot for them. German machine gunners are crisscrossing the place with heavy fire, and even some American and Canadian bullets s p a t t e r nearby as our troops try to keep the place clear for the engineers. The struggle to get the bridge up goes on for 3 hours with Lieut. Victor yega of Kansas City and his engineers risking their lives time after time. Finally the last piece of the bridge is in place. Our motorized units rumble across it and head for the town. The battle of San Vittore.'has been won. i \f j l\ KATIOKALLY FAMOUS Ef, f DANCE * NOVELTY BANDS * Afro POPULAR VOCAL .
