18. Leroism by »' * ' C* llowa Nurse |ls Revealed il'l By KENNETH DKON (The Cpmbined U. S. Press) With Allied Invasion Forces r.jtjwjuth of Rome, Feb. 8.--(U.R)--If if the courage of American nurses fei ever is questioned, the story of ·jJ-fHelen Talboy of Des Moines, Iowa, _St#md her gang oE spunky girls on I W.the Anzlo beachhead will supply 1'jii'the answer. : ' One night a week ago a group · .,:r«- them left the nearby hospital If Htents lor the correspondents build- K jmg when falling flak shredded ··';the tent roofsUnd shells sci-eamed iitoverhead. .,!.*( Before that they had been ifibombed and shelled and bombed "id shelled again. .The tension was beginning to ri .-jll on them. Helen was one of tythe most jittery. But they all went 'Aback to their hospital tents and j'tvent on with their work. A The newsmen sat around talk- kng after they left, saying they taad about reached the breaking jTjwint--that this beachhead was no «jlace for women. M!__ A couple of days later. Jack Ifi'oisie of Stars and Stripes and I flftvere at the hospital hunting the f£;hief surgeon to get a story. ( i«^e!en, who was first lieutenant tefti charge of surgery, volunteered VjU find him. .A Instead for half .an hour she JVI.-andered indecisively out in the [ j.'uddle of the hospital area, talk' -; disconnectedly about fear and :ent. close calls. She was try! hard to rationalize her grow! fear--she .was not ashamed of nobody is ashamed of fear r /er here--she merely was trying tp^ keep it from getting control of ., As I left? I said, "Jack,,she's in t .'-bad shape. She has been through [;.tob much. She is about to go to · pieces." ,' "It looks like it," he said. "But ·she's trying hard. I wonder what HOT OFF THE WAX--Song Writer AI Dexter of Texas, of "Pistol Paekin' Mama" fame, takes the first copy of one of his new songs from the record pressing machine at the Columbia plant at Bridgeport, Conn. she would do in a sudden crisis?" Yesterday afternoon the crisis came. When German bombs hit the hospital, lulling 27 and wounding; more than 60--including 3 nurses killed and 3 wounded--Helen was on duty in the surgical section, which was punctured by hundreds of shrapnel holes. Without a moment's hesitation she took charge. She collected the surviving nurses, gave them bandages and first aid equipment ' ·--· ·-- r "^^ ~^^ r -^^ '^^^·^^·^^·^·^1 Black Arrow "SP" FRANKLIN COUNTY FURNACE COAL Brings You : HIGH HEAT UNIT RATING · REDUCED ASHES · EXCELLENT B U R N I N G QUALITIES 302 S.MONROE and started them caring for the wounded, lying crumpled and moaning over the bloody hospital area. She supervised the first aid and saw to it that the dead were covered as quickly as possible bringing some merciful semblance of order to the whole nightmarish scene. The same nurses who seemed so near breaking a week ago, were busy everywhere. Late Monday night they were still working. Nurses from other units came .up and volunteered to-help, but these tired, stone-eyed veterans insisted on caring for their own. Nearby, I saw some men weeping, standing in small shaken groups. Some of the nurses were crying- too, but soundlessly--the tears on their cheeks in the pale moonlight were the only sign. Eventually their grief would get the better of them, for these dead and dying were not strangers but their comrades of many months. And their fears would return. But hundreds o£ soldiers 'who lay wounded in those tents never will forget how Helen Talboy and her gang of spunky girls discarded their fears, postponed their grief, and did their jobs when the chips were down.

As a major producer of butadiene (the chief ingredient in synthetic rubber) and 100 octane aviation gasoline, the Phillips Petroleum Company presents these facts as a contribution to general understanding of the'present transportation problem. With us, as with every American motorist, the needs of war come first. But when victory is won, car owners will begin enjoying the benefits and product-improvements flowing from Phillips gigantic chemical plants, devoted to producing new and better things from pitmltum gases as well as petroleum. PHILLIPS PETROLEUM Co., Banlesviiu, Oklahoma RACE FOR RUBBER is right now entering - the homestretch. Swiftly and surely, the nation's synthetic rubber plants are approaching peak annual production of 850,000 tons. Despite this record-breaking achievement, the next stx months are the time of crisis, because the full righting power of rubber is needed for war: Tires for planes, and combat trucks and cars... rubber for life rafts and landing boats . . . rubber for bullet- sealing tanks and electrical insulation... rubber for a thousand and one victory needs. This is why only the most essential civilian drivers can be supplied with new tires of synthetic rubber, at least until late in the year.

No further details of this engagement were given by the com- munique, which said that units of Gen. Draja Mihailovie's chetniks \ brigaded with the axis forces. Marshal Josip Broz (Tito) also disclosed that a battle has been raging for the past 20 days between partisan forces and a German-Bulgarian army in the Zlatibor area of western Serbia. More than 200 axis troops have been slain, the Jugoslav bulletin added. Other clashes were reported from widely separated parts of the irregular front, the commu- nique said, adding that a German ammunition ship recently had been sunk by a British warship in an unspecified locality off the -oast.
