He threw together some lengths of cold-air pipe, a heating fan, a discarded drum and an old gasoline engine--and he had'a vacuum cleaner to use for leafy streets. It does the work of 20 men and it cost less than $100 to assemble. The machine inhales the leaves from the street and blows them into a covered truck. When one truck drives off to the dump, the cleaner is hooked on to another truck. 60 Jenkins is working on improvements now.

Catliota, director of a Cleveland war plant, says that he's happiest when one of his workers quits to take another job. The reason is that Catliota .directs the work treatment shop o: the Association for the Crippled and Disabled here. Thus, when one of his workers leaves, Catliota knows that the patient is ready to tnke his place in heavy industry. While a 'worker is undergoing treatment, he rnay be employed in the workshop making cartridge cases/ wing nuts or a variety o other products which develop hi special abilities and cater to indi vidual needs. The shop is equipped to test the capacity and work endurance of a patient requiring physical, occupational or speech therapy. He is then put to work at tasks calculated to build up enough strength to enable him to do heavy work on a 40 hour a week schedule. , Since Pearl Harbor, Catliota's workshop, which now has 110 em- ,ployes, has graduated an average of 25 workers a month to Cleveland's war industries. 7 Mired in Mud Under Fire-Wires Were Laid Bougainville, (U.R) -- At the height of a recent action on Bougainville, Lt. Glenn Bell of Hollywood, Cal., took 7 men with him ahead of the 'front lines to lay telephone wires. Three of the men were wounded, but the wires were laid and their action contributed greatly to the subsequent drive that drove the enemy out of his pillboxes, said their commanding officer, LtJ Col- Ralph King of Rockville, Md. · When the others were wounded, Bell and the others dodged sniper fire, crawled from mudhole to mudhole while Japs rained sniper nd mortar fire into the area. "We were in mudholes clear to ur belly," said Bell. "All of us arried carbines, and the boys arried 200 to 400 yards of wire trung around their shoulders. Sgt. Raybon M. Chambers (Dyersburg, Term.) had a lot to~ do with getting the wires laid." "Bell also disclosed that Pvt. Warren L. Parks, former heavyweight boxer from Allentown, Pa.
