Hoe nog n m Ch v^ cago c a o SWINE RECEIPTS GUT TO 9,000 Action on Cattle ;" Market Still Strong Chicago, (f) --Although receipts of'hogs were cut to 8,000 salables, holdovers Friday "were. estimated at 10,000. Action in the cattle market continued 'strpng ; Friday with demand exceeding,-the usual Friday supply. A lew pattered sales on, navtive lambs and sheep were fully steady, but the asking prices ,werea not met in early trade. ·'" Receipts of hogs all week have been out of proportion with the number that packing plants could handle, and" the prevailing congestion resulted in a permission- to-market plan, effective Jan. 24. It is unlikely that any stock held over at the end o£ Friday's trade will be -cleared before .the middle of next week as enough stock is already listed to handle , requirements fof the early week's trade. The support price of $13.75 held for top, while other -weights and grades sold steady at nominally unchanged prices.

The continued dry weather over most ol the mid* west, coupled with government demand for flour, was the major factor in the strength. ' The firmness of the bread cereal was not reflected in other grains. At one time rye was up about a cent, but the market broke quickly when traders attempted to sell out rye'bought early in the session. Prices fell below Thursday's close. Oats and barley were unable to make any headway. At the close wheat was % lower to % higher, May $1.70% to $1.70%, oats were % lower to VB higher, May 78'/4, rye was down VB to %, May Sl.29% to §1.29%, and barley was unchanged to % lower, May $1.21%.

Steels were late in getting a start and never made much headway. While there were several wide swingers, gains at the best ran to a point or so. These were trimmed in many cases near the clbse and minus signs were plentiful for| leaders. Transfers were around 800,000 shares.

S, TROOPS IN INDIA-BURMA Is Source of Shelter, Food, Water, Not Mere Fish Pole for Soldier By FRANK HEWLETT United Press Stiff Correspondent India-Burma Border, (U.R)-- Bamboo means more than just another fish pole to the American soldier on this front. He has discovered there are countless uses for this giant tropical grass. It is a source of food, water, shelter and weapons. There are soldiers who owe then- lives to bamboo; also, it has been responsible for the death of "Jap warriors. However, bamboo primarily is a source of shelter. Bamboo huts-commonly called bashas--have proven more practical than tents. They are cooler and with a little effort can be nude more comfortable. Not only the huts, but often all the furnishings and fixtures are made from bamboo.

With a little effort you may talk him into making a couple of chairs. In some camps, water for showers and the mess hall is brought in from nearby springs by using bamboo poles for pipes. I have inspected American field hospitals where the administrative, sureical, laboratory and ward buildings were all made of bamboo. The nurses, likewise, live bashas and by adding the woman's touch they have shown a bamboo house can be made attractive as well as comfortable. . Bashas have windows, bat you can count on your fingers the ones with glass panes; however, most of them have shutters, which are closed during storms and for the blackout. In connection with bashas, one nurse remarked: "I have beerr in hospitals where the nurses' quarters weren't as good as the ones we have here. But, pal, if we stay, here much longer my ma's goinas* have a hard time breaking me of the habit of leaning out the window in the morning to brush my teeth." Indian bashas generally have dirt floors, but the army, wherever possible, provides floorin'. It is generally rough boards or bricks, although occasionally eon- re te. The floor makes it easier to :eep the building clean, and also iclps keep out the dampness dur- ng the monsoons. Men on patrols, who are often way from camp several days, say tiat tender bamboo, shoots "taste ike chicken" to a hungry man. The same food has been credited vith easing the hunger pangs of pilots making their way back to civilization after being shot down n the jungles. Additionally, British jungle veterans say water is frequently onnd inside the bamboo of the Surma jungle. A Tommy who has led many patrols told me the water from the bamboo was pure and not bad tasting. The pangi pit, one of the world's first booby traps, is widely usec on the Burma front. It is a pi filled with sharpened bamboo sticks. Some are shallow, others several feet deep. The pits ar carefully concealed by grass or brush, placed over a thin layer of bamboo. The allies and Japanese both are using pangi pits. These deadly obstacles sometimes are placed across trails, but usually they are on the edge of them. Pangi Pits have proven valuable in further strengthening important defensive positions, and reducing the possibility of a ·OAftD AND ROOM AUHTCLAW F1UM.OILT, PWKV, GLAD OF IT/"" SHE'S GOT A sposmoN UKE A SAW HITTING A NAIL-/-- WHEH- SHE GOULO GNE A V/ET vnLJDCAT ^_^ LESSONS IN TEMPER/-- I WONDER VWAT CAVE ME THE IDEA I WtfTED TO MARKf HERf-MAYBE BEELERGANG GUM FV3HTS -·· YOU GET MORE , VARIETY/ FIMD ~TM* BEELER.

Fate has been kind in providing this sector with a bamboo which does not have sharp thorns. In the Philippines and other far east countries there is a type of bamboo with sharp thorns which make the cutting of wood most difficult. I have seen thorns so sharp and strong that they would penetrate the thick soles of GI shoes. Troops in this sector are amazed when told there is no bamboo in the jungles of New Guinea o'r the Solomons. They are used to bamboo that they find it hard to conceive jungle fighting without it.

(U.R)--A survey by the National Metal Trades Assn., whose members include more than 1.000 war plants, gives* this composite, picture of the woman war worker: f She ranges between 28 and 30 in age. and probably is the wife of a serviceman. She likes a uniform and wants hers the same color as that o£ the men workers. She won't wear a cap, but goes for a bandanna. If young, she prefers tho 7 a. m. shift; if she has small children, she prefers the 11 p. m. shift. But if her husband works in the same plant, she wants the same hours. Once established, she doesn't like to have her shift changed. And she prefers to work under a man supervisor. She excels on light machines, on small assembly and inspection work. This is tho gal who. the survey report says, has made the war plant a plcasanter place, brought better plant housekeeping and rceps and clean them first with emicals, \then by running a small vacuum hose over th~em to ck up stray dust particles. Little cones of lintless paper-ailed "snozzles" by the workers-ire fitted.over tips of vacuum oses to prevent scratching of lens urfaces. But use of the cones reated a first-class headache for ompany experts. Quite frequent; the cones vibrated when air as sucked through, causing them o "sing"--and simultaneously to pray thousands of tiny particles, vhich meant a compwe re-clean- ng job and production delays. Mrs. Jordan, who has been with he company since the war tarted, makes the "snozzles One day she felt the almost im- jerceptible grain of the paper vith her sharply-sensitive fingers are noticed that when the "snoz- zles" were cut with the grain, they did not sing and that when ;hey were cut across the grain ;hey did. It was simple after tha .o cut the "snozzles" correctly. The r e s u l t has considerably ooosted production for the com pany and a fine reward via the employes suggestion system for Mrs. Jordan.
