Representing The Combined 1!. S. Press Aboard A Destroyer Off Anzio, taly. (U.P.)--Six allied infantry di- isions (normally 30,000 men) iave been put ashore in the al- icd beachhead south ot Rome de- pite almost ceaseless enemy jombing. The initial invasion troops have teen reinforced with armor and heavy artillery and it is possible hat the Germans south of Rome vill be pinched off between the 5th and Sth armies in the future. (Homer Bigart, another American correspondent, reported from :he beachhead Saturday that the nvasion forces had massed enough men and guns to "secure a bridgehead wider and deeper than that grasped at Salerno in 21 days of bloody fighting.") (The initial forces ashore at Anzio. Bigart said, captured German b a t t a l i o n headquarters, where they found plans showing where every mine in the area had been planted.) Allied supplies continue to pour into the beachhead despite bombing which has been far more frequent-than at Salerno. _ With the exception of one day when rough seas delayed us, however, "there has been a steady stream of landing ship-tanks and liberty ships heading in to Anzio with supplies. · At almost any hour, day or night, ships can be seen going both ways. · j The Germans, making use ot the Rome area airports', have tried virtually cverythine in the book to break up our convoys and disrupt the beaches Abut have failed. Allied fighters and anti-aircraft batteries beat off dive-bomber, torpedo plane, high level bomber and glider bomb attacks. Allied cruisers screened by de- stoyers carry out daily artillery duels approximately 5 miles north of the beachhead with German coastal batteries. To the south, destroyers cruise slowly up and down ahe coast, firing rapidly at German concentrations ashore and in the lulls at the edge'of the Pontine marshes. ; .' lOc Box 2 13 (Limit 2) Sunkist Oranges GOOD QUALITY. 220s. *5/* (Limit 2 Dozen) Dozen fJ\ Emerald Oil Lady Esther 5 JerisHair Oil Bird Seed 60c p owder 39c 39c 60c Bottlc (Limit i French's.

By EMILIE BASEL United Press Staff Correspondent Scott Field, 111., (U.P.) --Women and barbers are popularly supposed to do more talking than a campaigning congressman, but Virginia Micheel, head-trimmer to the soldiers'stationed here, disqualifies jokesters on both counts by snipping in silence. niiss Micheel worked as a beauty operator for several years ne- fore she followed her father and S brothers into the barbcrinff profession. Now, after 6 months at barber college and 2^-j years apprenticeship, she is the sole wom- mau barber at the army post here. The soldiers like both her silence and her skill with the clippers apparently, for she averages between 40 and 50 haircuts a day. Most of them, she said, are requests for ''anything but G. 1." She -has found that most of the soldiers cling' to their own style of trim, but if the back of the head and neck are neatly clipped military authorities make no complaint. The required length of the serviceman's crowning glory is about 2 inches, according to post regulation, but Miss Micheel doesn't bother to measure it. Her own practiced eyes tell her when to quit the clipping. Men, she said, digging back into her beauty shop experincce, talk just as much as women while their locks are beinr streamlined but don't give out with their personal intimate life as much. She works quietly, throwing in an occasional word only to show the orating soldier that she's an appreciative audience. The blond,- 21 year old clipping expert believes her family holds a record in bartering history,,,with 5 ot them practicing the trade at the same time. Her father, a barber since the age of 16, works in their home-town, Germantown, 111., but the children work at MRS. J. MUSEL DIES Chester--Mrs. James Musel. 70, died at her home Friday night following a long illness. She had used a wheel chair the past 2 ears after suffering a stroke- She survived by her husband, 5 sons and 3 daughters. Two sons arc in service, 1 1 in England. in Australia and GETS TROMOTION Cresco--Sgt. Hubert Ernst, son | of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ernst of Cresco, was recently promoted to the rank ot staff sergeant "somewhere" in England, with the armored engineers. During his absence in the service his wife is staying at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. F. Wocll- stcin, in Cresco. . Scott Field Exchange Shops. The only non-barber in the family, with the exception of mother and 10 year old sister Lillian, is her brother Roger, a clerk in the exchange sfiops. Lillian is already casting the shadow of her future career by deftly scissoring the heads of her unprotesting dolls. Miss iMichecl is proud of her solo standing as the only woman barber at Scott Field, but more that her customers keep coming back for more in spite of her formidable competition in the persons of 35 male barbers at the post. -There are about 10 or 12 women barbers scissorinsr servicemen at army camps throughout the nation, she said, with 6 of them keeping the fuzz off G. I. necklines at Fort Lawton, Seattle, Wash. Father Paul Likes Bleak Alaska Isle Tununnk, Nelson Island, (U.P.)-- Father Paul C. Deschout, Jesuit priest for 10 years on this bleak, little-known sea island, much difficulty learning the ways of the Eskimos here as they had becoming accustomed to his. When the Belgian-born priest was called to an outlying village to officiate at a funeral, he found the village elders sitting on a bench in the kashim, or men's house. He began shaking with them, moving along the line of skin-lad hunters, trying to gain their confidence. "I was halfway along lhe line ot men," Father Paul relates, "when I found myself shaking hands with the dead man. They had brought him into the kashim for a last visit before buried." . " Father Paul has been off Nelson Island only once in 10 years, and then he hurried back, homesick for his bleak island home, his tiny chapel, and the wild Eskimos he works, hunts and lives with. With his team of 8 malemutes, the priest travels constantly'among the native villages, pinch-hitting in every capacity from midwife to reindeer herder. Today Father Paul was preparing for a trip to a remote village on the other side of the island. All the men of this village were away on the reindeer round-up-and 4 children were about to be born. The men wanted Paul to bring them news ot their wives and offspring as soon as possible, and the women wanted him there with a medical kit. "One thing about it," Father Paul laughed, "if the babies are all boys. I'll be the most messenger on Nelson island when I return."
