10 Traday, Jan. 11, 1M« MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTB Parliament Gets New, Bill on Education London, (U.R)--The most far- reaching reform in the history of British education has been proposed in the new $320,000,000 government bill which raises the compulsory school attendance age in Britain from 14 to 15 and establishes a ministry of education to provide part-time schooling for children up to the age of 18. Based on a White Paper issued last July, the bill is debatable in parliament early in 1944 and was given its first formal reading recently. It was drawn up by board of education president R. A. Butler and parliamentary secretary J. Chuter Ede. Divided into 5 parts, the proposal is designed to give 5 million English children the birthright of a secondary education. It abolishes the so-called elementary and higher schools and establishes in their stead 3 stages: primary, secondary and further schooling. Authority is delegated first to central advisory councils for England and Wales and then to local educational bodies. The bill provides more aid for church schools and authorizes religious instruction in other schools in classes not to exceed 2 weekly periods. The bill also provides an extension of technical vocational training and stiff fines and jail sentences for parents who violate the compulsory age period. Provision is made for food, clothing and medical treatment for poor children. The age for leaving school would be raised to 16 on April 1, 1945, according to the proposal, and the minister of education would be required to submit to Parliament an order in council raising the age to 16 as soon as is practicable. Parliament expects to debate the bill at length and to make numerous amendments, but it was thought that the basic principles will be accepted. Chicago Hog Pens Jammed Climbs Pole for Squirrel; Gets Frown Cleveland, (U.R)--Legal advice lo people who climb telephone- poles to capture runaway squirrels: Don't. Such was the advice handed down by the common pleas court here in denying Clarence Keller damages from the O h i o Public Service company. Keller gallantly offered to chase a pet squirrel that ran away from its boy owner. The chase led up a telephone pole, the squirrel got tangled up in the wires, and Keller got a teeth shattering .shock from the resulting short circuit. The court's opinion, legally and officially phrased, declared: "The company should not be considered negligent for failing to forsee that an adult person would go squirrel lunting upon its pole, and that the squirrel, alarmed by pursuit, would short circuit its wires, lawfully installed thereon, nor reasonably anticipate such a result" In other words: Nuts to squirrel hunter Keller, whose petition neglected to mention what happened to the squirrel. 34,000 HEAD ARE UNLOADED Prices Same; No More This Week Requested C h i e a g o, (/P)--Swine again Jammed local pens as 34,000 head were unloaded Tuesday.

(!F) -- All g r a i n s strengthened after a weak opening Monday and both wheat and rye showed enough rallying power to effect substantial gains from the previous closes. Buying, however, was scattered, support in wheat coming from locals and in rye from houses with eastern connections. Generally the trade held back from the market to await developments in country marketings as a result of the fixing of ceilings and pending further study of the president's message to congress.

Lone Yank Takes 19 Nazis With Ruse in Italy By KENNETH'L.DIXON With the AEF on ht lUlbn Front, Jan. 9 (Delayed) (fl--Pvt. Billy Miller, 21, a last-talking doughboy from Peoria, 111., hoodwinked a German lieutenant and 18 enlisted men into believing they were surrounded and then marched them single-handed to captivity across 600 yards of no- man's land. f Private Miller pulled off the exploit when he went into action for the first time Thursday night as his company attacked a hill in the San Vittore area. Surrounded by 90 Germans while he and a few comrades were bringing some wounded and a prisoner to the rear, Billy and his mates had to surrender. A platoon of 19 Germans took charge of Billy. In a tunneled-but cave where they put up for the nifbt, the jerries started talklnr about taking him back to a prison camp. The lieutenant, who spoke English, told htm what they were saying. "You'll never make it," said Billy. He knew he was at least a quarter of a mile in front of his own line, but he added, "We've got you surrounded. Listen!" Gunfire crackled outside, echoing in the cave. They spent the night there. Next day the fighting was still / terrific, so the German platoon moved only a short distance far-: ther back, this time to a farmhouse in the valley behind the hill. They drank some wine and found some bread, "But you could hardly stick a knife into it," Billy said later. They asked him if American bread was that hard. 'Oh, no," said Billy, who used to be a donghroller in a Peoria army biscuit bakery. "American bread is all fresh and soft." The Germans looked at one another. Next day, the German lieutenant insisted that the time had come to try to contact other German outfits. As he talked, Billy looked out the" window. On a distant hill paralleling the valley he saw troops moving. It was worth a gamble. "I tell you we've got this place surrounded," he said. "Come outside and I'll show you." They stepped outside and Billy pointed to the movement on the hill. The lieutenant stepped back inside, talked to his men a moment, then came back to Billy, unbuckled his pistol belt and handed it to him. "You are not our prisoner now," he said. "We are your prisoners." So back across no man's land, the 5-foot 5-inch doughboy led the column of prisoners. Walking up to his lines, he turned them in, together -with 7 German automatics, 9 binoculars 'and 1 machine pistol. to.Capt. Knssel E.

SaysASTP Will Not Be Liquidated Iowa City--The army specialized training program in American universities and colleges is not in the process of liquidation and the number of cadets in the program will depend upon the actual needs of the arms and services. This is the information received by University of . Iowa officials from the war department's bureau of public relations. Such a statement was issued, in response to inquiries after certain newspapers had published a story to the effect that ASTP was to be abandoned. In the material from the war department, Secretary of War Henry L. Stinson is quoted as The population of El Reno, Oklahoma, jumped about 145,000 persons in a single day in 1901 when the last free land in Oklahoma was opened to white settlers. Major Rates Chaplain, Also 1 st Lieutenant Madison, Wb., OJ.R--The lieutenant who is a major and major who is not a major is a paradox which has proved embarrassing to a Truax Field chaplain. The chaplain's name is Major C. Waldrup. His rank is first lieutenant. While visiting a soldier at the Madison police station recently, the chaplain signed the register "Major Waldrup." A husky x policeman eyed the lieutenant's silver bars on his shoulders and demanded an explanation. Waldrup hurried into his usual explanatory speech.

Gillette is among those scheduled to speak in behalf of a senate resolution, already approved by the senate foreign relations committee, which would provide relief for residents of occupied areas. Witnesses have agreed that getting food to as many starving children as possible in occupied countries would encourage revolt. Senate Resolution 100, introduced by Senators Gillette of Iowa and Taft of Ohio (and the companion measure. House Resolution 117 by Representative John Lesinski of Michigan, chairman of the committee on invalid pensions) reads, in part, as follows: · "Whereas after 6 months' trial (in Greece, under supervision of the Swedish and Swiss governments and the International Red Cross) this relief has been certified by the state department as working satisfactorily and without his exploit received, Billy's first thought was to reassure his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Miller of Peoria, that he is all right. "Just tell them I'm okay and say hello," he said. After a moment's thought he added: "You might \ell Peggy Mitchem of Mason, Ga., that I'm all right, too." Then he headed back to the lines to rejoin his company- f i n Peoria, Billy's father was astounded when informed of his son's exploit, but quickly declared: "He was practically bom with a gun in his hands and he was a crack shot." His mother said: "We're proud of him." (In Macon, friends said that Miss Mitchem, 17, a swingshift worker at an air depot, was spending the weekend at her home in nearby Athens, but promised to deliver Billy's message when she returns. The pair became acquainted when he was stationed at Macon before going overseas.) Flying Fortress bombers can climb to altitudes of 40,000 feet. Street or Rural Route City New Tunnel Proposed at Continental Divide Denver, (U.R)--The Denver and Rio Grande Railroad is seeking permisison to drill a new tunnel through the continental divide to handle difficulties presented by wartime freight shipments. The present tunnel was bored in 1890, when western railroading was in its infancy. It now is too small for the bulky machinery and freight being moved on the nation's rail lines, so a larger tunnel has been proposed. It would cost more than $800,000 and would require a year to complete. The plan must be given approval by the U. S. district court. State (Mail to Washington, D. C.) Pay Dairy Subsidies to Palo Alto Farmers EmmetsbaTg--E i g h t hundred Palo Alto county farmers have received $3,867.79 in dairy subsidy checks for 2,400 pounds of milk and 79,748 pounds of butterfat sold, according to Lawerence Brennan, chairman of the Palo Alto AAA committee. The payment represents 4 cents a pound on butter and 30 cents a hundred on milk. The subsidy dairy payments will be continued during January. In order to assist farmers in buying higher priced feed the January payment will be 5 cents a pound on butterfat and 35 cents a hundred on milk. benefit to the Germans; and "Whereas there are large food supplies available in South America, and "Whereas Belgium, France, Norway, Poland, Greece, Jugoslavia and the Netherlands have lived in friendship with the United States during our entire existence, and have sent us millions of pur most useful and helpful American citizens, and now have no means whatever of securing the necessary agreements by which this disaster can be averted; now, therefore, be t "Resolved that the Senate (H. Resolution 117 "House") respectfully urges that the government of United States, through the secretary of state, endeavor as quickly as possible to work out, in co-operation with the British government and the governments of Sweden, Switzerland, and the accredited representatives of the other governments concerned, the setting up of systematic and definite relief for air stricken and hungry countries where the need is now the most acute; this relief to be based on agreements by the belligerents for the protection of the native and imported food supplies, with rigid safeguarding of such relief so that no military advantage whatever may accrue to the civil populations or armed forces of the invading nations. F. R.: Congressmen Can't Serve Actively in U. S. Armed Forces Washington, (JP) -- President Roosevelt instructed the secretaries oE war and navy Monday that members of congress "may not serve in the active components of :he armed services'," Mr. Roosevelt said in a furmal statement that Attorney General Biddle had advised him that the constitution forbids simultaneous service in the armed forces and in congress. "Aside from the constitutional barrier," the president said, "there is also the problem of evaluation of service to the nation. One of the greatest strengths of our democracy in the time of crisis is a strong, virile congress, to meet the problems arising from the demands of total war. "The election of these congressmen after war was declared, showed that their constituents believed that their service as legislators was their paramount contribution to the war effort." Mr. Roosevelt said that the desire of legislators to serve their country under arms was understandable and appreciated, and "does them honor."
