16 Thursday, Jin. 27, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Army in Jeep Plays Santa to Eskimos Bethel, Alaska, (U.PJ-Just when the .native children of the Kuskok- wim river were getting used to /Santa Claus arriving by airplane instead of dog team, the local army post upset, river tradition by delivering Christmas presents in the roadless wilderness with--o£ all things--a jeep. The idea was decided on by Capt. Frank Novak of {733 Poplar Grove) Baltimore, Md., Lt. William T. Bowles,. Chinton, La., and Lt. Hurvey Jackson of (2100 Jonesboro Road) Atlanta, Ga. These amateur Santas had some 80 pounds of Christmas candy which they wished to distribute to Eskimo orphans up the river. So they loaded the candy in a jeep and headed upstream over the ice, bucking blizzards, snowdrifts and open water. They jockeyed the little jeep 100 miles into the interior, where no jeep had .ever been before, delivered their candy, and made a safe return trip to the base. "We told the kids that Santa had been mechanized," Lt. Bowles said. Buy War Savings Bonds anil Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy.

Salisbury tells how human and commercial life' slruceles to carry on in a land scorched by war and which only a few weeks ago was a battleground. By HAREISON SALISBURY Smolensk Russia, Jan. 23 (U.R)-- This is a city of death--a victim of invader's torch and gun which has suffered 135,000 casualties during German occupation--but life still struggles on. The, Kids of Smolensk were sliding in| the slushy streets- on their home-made sleds just like those o£ Minneapolis or Peoria. It didn't seem to bother them that the buildings on both sides of the streets v/ere scorched ruins. A 60 year «ld peasant woman, bundled in a black shawl, came down the street. She said the Germans burned her house when tbey moved eut last September. She now lives with 3 children in the cellar of the house, which they have rudely chinked up to keep out the cold. 'Soviet officials said that no more than 30,000 persons now live in Smolensk, which before the war had .been a busy industrial town and a area for a large agricultural area housing 185,000. Commerce struggles to survive. In the marketplace I saw at least 1000 peasants busily exchanging arm ^produce for remnants of onsumers goods which the pop- lation had salvaged. The pea- ants bring in eggs, potatoes and abbage on low, wooden, horse- rawn sledges. They exchange icir produce for roubles or for ots and pans. Almost the only people seen on he -streets are women^mostly middle or old aged--children and Id men. There were virtually no vornen 14 to 40 to be seen. Of- icials said 10,000 to 12,000 Smo- ensfc factory workers had been arted off to the west with their .achines before the Germans vacuated. , Industrial plants are being re- abilitated. The busiest place in molensk outside the market place r as the railroad yards. '.The initial estoration was of communications nd transportation. Coming into Smolensk on the pecial train which carried corre- pondents to the Katyn hearings, ve saw testimony to Russian ef- ciency in repairing', war damage.' or the distance from 35 miles utside Moscow, hardly a culvert r bridge had not been blown up. ach had been repaired by the Russians with s'toiit wooden restles. Every few miles along he roadbed lay t he'mangled re- nains of blasted locomotives and le steel frames of burned freight ars. From the windows we saw con-' truction gangs laying sidings, re- Jiforcing bridges and · bolstering he roadbed for double tracking. I saw train after train of Rusian soldiers moving up .to the front. Occasionally there was a motorized unit with its tanks on lat cars. All along the route were lurried villages. There were many resh-hewn log huts housing peasants and some of the populace was heltered in half-hidden military dugouts. T The troops in boxcars appeared dressed warmly and often were clustered around galvanized iron stoves chewing chunks of bread. Note to Fag Donor in U. S. Draws Blank Akron, O., (U.R)--S o m e w h e r e overseas is a disillusioned soldier. Behind his sadness is the story of workers in a war plant here who took up a collection to buy cigarets for the boys overseas. Some of them included their names, with the smokes. The soldier who received his was much impressed with the name of the donor--"Fay Willoughby." He was so impressed that he wrote back a thank-you letter, ending it with a romantic p. s.: "Who knows? This, note may be from your future husband." Back to the romantic doughboy came the answer--from a M r s . Willoughby,.who kindly explained that Fay was married to her and made a very nice husband. Railroad Crash Is Prevented by 2 Boys, Each 9 Years of Age Los Angeles, (fl)--"Hey, Look! The switch is open." "Yeah, just like on ray electric train." "Gee. it a train comes along-Bango." Robert Mulnick, Jr., and Norman Burns, each 9, had this conversation Wednesday on a railroad track. They told Harold Hauflaire of the Airco Corp. plant nearby who informed railroad men. They stopped a freight train QUOTA HALF RAISED Iowa Falls--Approximately 50 pei- cent of tlie $134,000 bond quota for Iowa Falls has been reached Richard Welden, chairman, reported Tuesday. The committee hopes the quota can be-reach'ec without making a house-to-house canvass. hat probably-would have jumped the switch and smashed into the war plant. ' Thursday t h e b o y s w e r e A DELICIOUS TREAT WITH - · POULTRY OR MEAT awarded $50 war bonds at a dent assembly, in their school; P. S. -- They were playi hookey at the time. In Packagac and Tea B*gm at Your GIOCK'S |MO»I i* UHR QUANTrms KISCBVEDI TESTIFIES ON LIVING COSTS Congress, Public Must Help Avoid Increase Washington, (iP)--Price Administrator, Chester Bowles told a senate labor subcommittee Thursday further increases in living costs are inevitable unless he gets "the vigorous support of congress and the general public." Asserting that "efforts to hold :h'e line against -any further rise n the prices o£ food have been hampered by the continuing uncertainty on the use of subsidy payments," Bowles stated: "For. every single pound of pressure which we have received toward more effective price control in the interest of the great masses of our people, we have received 100 pounds of pressure designed in one way or another to raise present prices to higher levels.'' Bowles, testifying before the Pepper committee inquiring into the economic status_ of white collar workers, termed the inquiry "unprecedented" because he said, he was accustomed "only to pressure from one direction." i "In the past when we have been called before ny group in congress or elsewhere, inevitably it has been to explain why we have failed to raise the price of this product or that," he commented, adding that he shared the committee's concern for "the growing economic threat to the millions of people in' the white collar and fixed income group." He said OPA's efforts to obtain badly needed production of inexpensive clothing had been hampered by the unwillingness of some corporations to manufacture such clothes "in spite of the fact that many of their firms are now making between 4 or 5 times the average profit earned during the pra-war period."
