Nation's Birth Rate Highest in 20 Years New York, (U.R)--Births during 1943 totaled 3,200,000, nearly one million more than the low point 10 years ago and 200,000 more than 1942, according to Metropolitan Life Insurance company statisticians. The birth rate for the year is the highest in 20 years, with greatest increases recorded in Pacific coast states, where war industries have increased the adult population. The rise in birth rate has been accompanied by the lowest infant mortality rate in history. Trusted Men Secreted Them From Bombs, Then From Invading Enemy By DUDLEY ANN HARMON United Press Slaff Correspondent London, (U.P)--Only 20 men in the'world know where 3 of the world's greatest art treasures--the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory and the Venus de Milo--are hidden. Commander Claude Schcffer. curator of the French National Museums, who noiv. is in London, told the United Press he is convinced the famous treasures are safe because the secret of their hideaway is so well guarded. Not even Marshal Pclain knows the answer. "The Germans tried to get Vichy to bring them back to their home in the Louvre, promising they would be well cared for, but the government refused," Scheffei said. French museum authorities worked for years prior to the wai on plans to remove thousands of the most valuable paintings, statues and archeological pieces. Trusted men whose own colleagues working in the same room did not know the secret hid them first from bombs and then from the German invasion. The Mona Lisa was for a time concealed in Paris. Then it was taken to a secret place miles from any town or village. Scheffcr predicts that it may be years before art objects from French private collections, and the smaller French museums, which have been looted by the Germans, will be traced ajid recovered. Many of them lie says are lost for good. Art authorities here say that France will count heavily on America's aid in getting back its treasures. The most artistic country in the world hopes the United SUitcs will add pressure and tell the Germans Ihrt they must either trace such articles or surrender one of equivalent value from their own museums. This is the line taken by the allied commission which has been established in London to make plans for the restoration of European museums to prewar greatness. Poland is doing: to prove the bis- ucsl headache to the commission. There the Germans have not only looted but destroyed archives so that even the authorities will be unable to trace the property. France has been let off comparatively lightly so far. Worst to suffer there have been the great private collections of Jewish families like the Rothschilds Weills. Commander Scheffer believes that some European paintings-not the most famous--may now be in America, sold by the Germans to Swiss and Spanish dealers and bought by private individuals. No American museum would purchase any of the leading objects d'art because their curators would know from whence they came and that they must have been removed by the Germans. Greatest complication for the commission will be to obtain the many paintings which the Germans have seized and sold to buyers in neutral countries like Sweden. Private and museum collections of old gold coins, sold chalices and ompany Finds 'Extras* to Employes Aids Work Cleveland, (U.R)--Another Cleveland concern is following in the footsteps of its eminent predecessor, the Jack and Heintz Co., and work-through-comforl" plan seems to be just what the doctor time, The Fokker Corp., :turers of war-vital airplane engine hoisis, is offering its employes more than just a job and personnel director Raymond V. P SUITS! other precious metal objects will be almost impossible to recover. The Germans, it is believed, will melt them down or conceal them for 10 or 15 years and then sell them. Objects to Fly Swatting Salem, Mass., (U.R)--Because-her husband kept her awake the summer by swatting f lys in the dark, Mrs. Alice M, Hinds of Lynn has petitioned for a divorce. In the she complained he dis- slccp by continually picking up the head of the bet and dropping it on the floor. Abbate said that the program had jeen outstandingly successful. Fokker offers all employes free land lotion, which both men and tvomen use; a vacation paradise on [he Alleghany river near Oil City, Pa., where a hunting lodge, trout streams, canoes, rowboats, and outboard motorboats are available, and a 69-hour work week. Abbate said labor turnover, as high as 20 per cent last January, was down to 2.7 per cent. The absentee rate has decreased from 8.9 per cent to 2.3 per cent and monthly accidents have been reduced from 11 to 4. It all adds up to increased war production, Abbate said.
