The over-all death increase of 6 per cent is, accounted for in .rises in deaths from, chronic diseases, attributed to the increasing'age of .the popji- lation and-" a" dearth ' o f civilian physicians, and in deaths from enemy action and in military training.

(N ralah) 20c N» Fault) BOOSTS MORALE WITH MANDOLIN Composes Portfolio-/ :of Tunes, Some Ballads, Some in Romantic Mood i By RALPH TEATSORTH United Press Staff Correspondent Advanced A l l i e d Headquarters, New Guinea, W.R)--A darned good sailor who plays the role of seafaring minstrel in his .spare moments is : Lt.' Comdr. Albert Schlott of Los Angeles, Cal. ' " ··.'· Schlott is assigned with a fleet of LST's y (landing ship tank), the work-horses of the·'·-navy- which are doing more' than their share to help win the war in the southr west Pacific. ; : · . ' Often, when his ship is chaining through the water enroute to some island base, Schlott sits in his wart room strummin* a man- doUn with expert fingers. Sometimes, wnen the flacshlp is docked with /* beautiful tropical setting in the background, soft ssntlmen- al strains will be beard'front the Upper's cabin. :.-', ·;'·:· Schlott has found music hath charms to soothe the worried seaman when the going gets rough n enemy-infested waters. Once, when a superior officer .was hav- ng a bad night .with his prob+ .ems in mid-ocean, S c h l o t t brought his ship alongside his commander's and played, a few popular tunes over the ship's loudspeaker system. .His superior messaged back applause and said the -effect; of the music was extremely comforting. - ' · - · Schlott has been play ing the mandolin for years bat not until he pat to sea in this war did he turn * to composition. He has. a large-portfolio of tunes he has composed while sailing the Pacific..Some of his melodies are~in a stirring military tempo; some are ballads, and some in romantic mood. He dedicated one to his .wife. ' . ' " · . \ .' -·-,' . A group of us were sitting in his cabin, off one of the many islands north of Australia one evening, sipping cool soft drinks and listening to the most .widely known of Schlott's compositions. It was : a lively tune written-by him as the theme song of the men in Uncle Sam's amphibious forces. It is catching on rapidly among the crews. . The words to the song, "We Are the Amphibious Force," were written by Ensign C.-McMillan. They are: ' "As our ships go sailing over the . sea, · ' - · . ' · ' - . We' are searching for the enemy; And their vessels if they-dare to show · --, We'll be sending to the depths be. low. · - . . - · We are. the amphibious force Sailing all the seas. We are the crocodiles Riding the LST's. We love both land and sea, And to keep them free Well fight for victory- Wherever we may be."Usually, Schlott H ably accompanied by Comdr. Enuaett (Doc) Norwood of Eklwnrille, Wasii, the ship's medical officer, -who has a pleasing voice. Morale is always Ugh when they find time for mu- sie-auking. 4CAXRXM Gft of Field Mouse Sets WACc Running ^Dale Mabry Field, FU., Oi.K-- WACs may be taking men's places and -assuming their ways in. many instances, but they still retain their womanly aversions to mice. ' An Air-WAC here recently received an, ^elaborately wrapped holiday gift When she opened the box, instead of finding some article to " delight the feminine heart, but stepped--of all things --a field mouse. As far as the girls in that barracks are concerned now, they've all seen action and participated in a major engagement. And if judged by the number of skinned ankles and other bruises resulting from the wild skirmish for a bed or tabletop, many of thete women soldiers,are eligible for a decoration.
