The program involves education of the Jnited States during war time iind t h e immediate postwar eriod. Members were instructed to contact the teachers of their re- tpective groups, discuss the ques- Eions and report the results of [their polls at the meeting, Feb. 19. Dave Tripp, president o£ the touncil, reported that the Cerro ordo county teachers' quota o£ S231 for the War and Peace fund (to finance the education program nationally will be over the top fcoon. The resignation o£ the vice president, Mrs. Betty Helm, Rock Falls, v/is accepted and Dwight nderson, Clear Lake, was elected |:o fill, the vacancy.

"The problem of reorganization Iff our Iowa school system to meet Ihe post-war needs is one that femands the attention not only If every Iowa teacher but of ·very citizen as well."

By MORRIE 'LANDSBERG Associated Press War Editor The allies' position in the southwest Pacific was materially improved Monday by the capture o£ 2 key points from the Japanese along with another heavy aerial blow that cost the enemy heavily in planes and in damage to its shipping. Weekend communiques also told of 10 Nipponese raids on primarily American holdings on New Britain, New Guinea and in the Solomons, But the damage, where there was any at all, was reported as light. In the far east, China-based American bombers flew to French Indo-China to attack the Hongay power plant, while allied ground troops occupied 2 more villages in western Burma in a slow advance toward the Japanese base at Akyab. Climaxing a bitter 4-day bat- tle on the jungle-covered western tip of New Britain, United States marines seized Hill 660' to gam the enemy's major defensive bulwark in its Borgen bay line of the Cape Gloucester invasion front. The Japanese now face further push-backs to the south and cast of the bay in a campaign which already has cost them more than 6,000 casualties. Veteran Australian troops who forced open the Sio gateway to northern New Guinea moved 3 miles beyond t h e fallen enemy barge center to within approximately 50 miles of the American army units at Saidor. Anothei Aussie force continued Its inlam advance toward the main goal ol Madang, big Nipponese defense base 55 miles northwest of Saldor. Allied fighters a n d bombers raked the enemy's supply points and barge line along the northeast coast of New Guinea, with ligan harbor north of Saidor mgled out for a load of 96 tons £ explosives. Navy dive and torpedo bomb- rs damaged 7 Japanese cargo essels, a light cruiser and a de- troyer, and shot down 29 p£ 60 o 70 interceptors, in a midday attack on Simpson harbor at Ra- baul, New Britain. Returning pilots said the destroyer and 1 :argo ship possibly w e r e sunk. Fhe Solomons-based raiders lost 2 bombers and 8 fighters, but 4 of the pilots were saved. The Japanese retaliated with nuisance r a i d s on territory wrested from them by the allies, FIRST CHOICE OF MILLIONS None faster. Nona mirer.

That's when he ran smack into the manpower shortage, firsthand, and before he left he had an offer of 75 cents an hour for the tinkering that had been his hobby. He took it, and now for 10 hours a night, he's helping on precision instruments for the air corps. Even when he's making movies, cs at present, he gets in his war licks, and he's had raises to 95 cents hourly. Peanuts compared to movie pay, no doubt, but "darn _ COLON .

IB FIRST ST (CEDAR RAPIDS SOUTH EAST DESMOINES MflSOU CITY 5IDUX CITY satisfying--especially with his 2 older boys in the armed forces. Miljan has been in the §in business since 1922, when he wearied of the "road" and decided to try movies. His first screen role was that of a typical Miljan. smoothie, and he has been committing, aiding, or abetting crime and seduction ever since. In one year, 1929, he played in more talking pictures than any other actor. Oc- c a s i o n a l l y , as in the recent "Bombardier," he has strayed into paths of virtue, but he likes sin better. He is at it again in "The Merry Monahans," a musical comedy in which he takes advantage, but smoothly, of pretty Ann Blyth. His role as a fading matinee idol is more polished than the routine Miljan renegade, but it is still mean enough, he says, to be satisfying. His reason: Bad men on the screen last longer than heroes. And they do. Some even get to be heroes through sheer wickedness. Humphrey Bogart recently, and now Alan Curtis in "Phantom Lady," have followed the heel-to-hero r o a d blazed by Clark Gable, James Cagney, William Powell, George Sanders, Lloyd Nolan, Edward G. Robinson, Paul Lukas, George Raft and the newer Turhan Bey. And even heroes seem to weary pj heroism. Heavy to Alan Curtis in "Phantom Lady" is Franchot Tone. Smooth romantic Charles Boyer is' the menace to Ingrid Bergman in "Gaslight." F r e d MacMurray in "Double Indemnity" is a murdering blackguard, as was Joseph Gotten in "Shadow of a Doubt." Maybe iVs time to call out the vice squad.
