M. C. A., from a^ transit camp through which captured aviators pass to | various camps or hospitals in Germany. The races mentioned are in addition to Americans, British French, Poles,' Serbs, Yugoslavs and all the others caught in the polyglot hopper of the bat tie- fronts.

Help Kidneys INDIIVDUAL BOND Quick Action Saves Lives in Hospitals U. S. Army Headquarters in the South Pacific, (U.PJ^.Surgical teams composed of topnotch nedical men and organized for split-second action have saved umerous lives in the south Pa- ific campaign, army authorities reported in recounting an incident which occurred in fighting on Bougainville recently. An exploding Jap artillery shell ent a jagged fragment, into the abdomen ot a marine, ripping his intestines from their anchorage to Stomach Gas Dangerous to Air Fighters American Airbase. England, (U.R --Gas attacks definitely are listed among the fears of America's high altitude airmen. Gas already has worked a'gainst them. The gas is not of the poisonous variety. It is not necessarily fatal. It isn't even one of the enemy's conscious weapons. As a matter of fact, he probably has as much or more trouble with it than the Americans. This gas is strictly an individual affair. It is the result of the phenomena of rarefied air at the 5- mile altitude where the fortresses, liberators, thunderbolts and light- nings fly. The decreasing external pressure means a many-fold increase in the pressure within the human body. The result in combat might be disastrous. ,A pilot doubling up with cramps could mean the loss of a quarter-million dollar aircraft and ID men of the crew, a bom- aardier with an acute tummy ache might miss the target,, a gunner who takes his hands from the irigger tq grasp a painful midriff might miss the fighter/that could shoot him down. What does the air force do about it? It watches the diet of its combat crews. And it warns them that 24 hours before a mission they'd better stand clear of any food which normally causes them dis- ,ress. It mentions specifically cabbage, dried beans, onions. Air force medics would like to know how- the Jerry fighter pilot gets along--what with his passionate love lor sauerkraut and all.
