(JP)--Men wounded in action, discharged and then fully recovered, are being drafted again, it was. disclosed Monday, and the war department took cognizance of the situation by ordering the veterans to be given their old ranks. Some sergeants and corporals, it was said, had found themselves back in uniform as privates, after the reasons for their original dis- tharge no longer existed. Selective service regulations permit re-drafting of veterans who again qualify. Some men wounded at Attu and at Faid Pass in the Tunisian campaign have been recalled by their local boards, the army said. Lowering o£ physical standards also has prompted the war department to order commanding officers to exhaust all possibilities before discharging enlisted m e n . Thousands have been released, it was said, for physical disabilities jt'l/i. OCAtt Mom GOT MDtifc XT. «« . AEOW PAVJ USIWG SO \7t^ SOWERS HAVJE. ROTiON HJQBLIMS TOO..

GAR ANNOUNCES STATE MEETING Annual Encampment to Be Held at Fort Dodge DCS Monies, (I?) -- The annua encampment of the Iowa department of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) will bo held at Fort Dodge, June 4, 5, 6 and 7 Miss Aniy Noll, department secretary, announced. It will be the 4th lime that the GAR and allied organizations have held their state meeting in Fort Dodge. Previous encampments there were in 1S09 1923 and 192fl. From a membership of more than 20,000 in 1890, the department roster has shrunk until only a few of the "comrades" remain Miss Noll said it is possible that a h;ilf dozen of the "boys in blue' might attend this year's encampment. David Sisk of MarsIiaJltown is department commander. A decision is expected to be reached by March 1 as to whether the national G. A. R. encampment will be held in Iowa this year. The decision hinges on the prospective re-opening to the public of a hotel in Des Moines recently vacated by the Women's Army Corps. The 1943 Iowa legislature appropriated 55,000 toward defraying the expenses of the national G. A. R. gathering if it should be held in Iowa in 1943 or 1Q44. Previous national encampments held in Iowa were in 1922, 192E, 1931 and 1938. Tentative opening date for the 1944 national encampment is Sepl. 10. ' Good Record in Inflation Seen in U. S. Iowa City--The nation's present record with regard to inflation is not too bad but the strike situation is far less satisfactory, In a summary prepared in the University of Iowa bureau of business research, Prof. George R Davies pointed to these facts. "Our inflation record is a greai improvement over that of Work war I. In fact, the current inflation index is hardly more than halt what it was in a comparable stage of the preceding war," Professor Davies said. He said (hat wholesale prices of 1943 were 34 per cent above pre-war 1939 while the cost o; living was up 22 per cent and foot prices gained 47 per cent in the same comparison. However, the record of strikes, as indicated by man-days idle, is not good. In 1D43 the total was 193 per cent, or nearly 3 times over ihe 1942 total of man-days Idle Professor Davies points out however, that bad as this recorc now stands, in view of the necessity of producing in the war effort it is less than pre-war 1339 by Z( per cent. With total production now 2'/i limes over the 1939 mark, such a record is regarded as excellen despite the stoppages by various strikes. In earlier years, no one would have believed that such record could be made, declared the university man. Urgent Need for Parts of Trucks and Tractors Manufacturers of automotive parts and machine shops in the Iowa area having additional capacity are urgently requested by the government to contact the district office of Smaller War Plants corporation at Des Moines, according to Leslie H. Bean, district manager. "There is an urgent need for thousands of parts for trucks, tractors, and various mobile equipment," he said. Bearings, oil seals, gears, gaskets, cam shafts, crank shafts springs, and a myriad of other items make up a list of urgen! war goods. "Plants having facilities for heat treating, forging, and grinding are especially'needed," Mr. Bean said Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy.
