BUY BONDS WILLKIE HOLDS NO PUNCHES ON WISCONSIN TRIP Says He's Committed to Overthrow a Group That's Been in Too Long By LEONAKD C. SCHUBERT United Frees Staff Correspondent Milwaukee', (UP.) -- Wendell L. Willkie's big hat is in the ring gain for the presidency of the Jnited States, but this time; it will mete e a ring-wise veteran who will said, ight to keep it there. Wlllkie wants the republican nomination and he said he's wiling tot take 'em as they come to ret ,it without looking for any 'straw men" to knock over to set a start. He picked Wisconsin as Ac first of a- number of states in which he will sample public sent- meat because he said he had leard that this was, politically, a 'touch" state, where the voters were.cold to bis advocacy of postwar participation by the United States in a program of international co-operation for the preservation of peace and extension of the principles of democratic government. Unsuccessful .in his 1940 effort to defeat President Roosevelt's bid for a 3rd term, Willkie didn't pull any punches during his 4 days in Wisconsin. He pressed an inquisitive finger on the public pulse at the 2 largest cities in Wisconsin --Milwaukee and Madison -- and cheeked his findings against the political heartbeat of 2 small communities--Portage and West Bend. When he departed for New York, he said he was satisfied with the response his visit elicited. Audiences, public and private were startled by his frankness and acceptance of realities. He reported that he had heard isolationism was landlocked in the middle west and was prepared to meet that contingency. One group heard' itself appraised as "not much of a political asset" in connection with "Willkie's assertion t h a t he \yasn't going to worry if it dis- iked his proposals for co-opera- ion between, capital and labor. Another heard him say that he vouldn't indulge in an' off-the- record discussion of party principles, but wasn't averse to re- Mason Cityan in Brunswick Air Attack London, (#) -- The fury of the nazi attempt to prevent American bombers from reaching the target in Thursday's raid on Brunswick was described by Lt. Arthur Mittman of Muscatine, Iowa. German Focke-Wulf f i g h t e r s "kept coming in, 6 abreast and head-on in drove after drove, declared Mittman, pilot of the bomber "Breaks of the Game." "We were lucky to get only a few flak holes and one 20 millimeter hole through one wing," he said. . "Then the P-47s showed up and our worries were over." °~ Lt. Morris Traub of Mason City, Iowa, a bombardier, in describing the results of the Brunswick, at-" tack, said he "saw a thousand fires." He has 4 brothers in the service, Lt. Ben Traub, navigator instructor at Monroe, La.; Sam Traub, 1st class metalsmith in the navy, somewhere in the Pacific; Joseph Traub, in the navy V-12 program, Clinton, Miss., and Abe Traub, seaman 2nd class, stationed on Mare island. Lt. Traub is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Traub, 319 3rd N. W. He was commissioned at Childress, Tex., last July IS. LT. MORRIS TRAUB --"Saw 1,000 Fires" vealing inside information on the conflict of personalities in the loust for the biggest election prize n the world--the presidency of the United States: At an informal reception sponsored by the Milwaukee county republican women's organization, kVillkie drew a gasp of surprise from a predominantly feminine audience of about 200 when he recalled that many critics in his own party had called him harsh names after he came out with an early advocacy of lend-lease and selective military -service and added that doubtless many of had voiced the speech at West Bend, Willkie said he knew that those present same criticism. In a homey many his, audience were quainted with him, however, he won overwhelming support, he said. . At one Milwaukee meeting he was introduced by Mrs. Charles Barth, the former Helen Armfield, who as a girl was a neigh- the Willkies Elwood. German descent arid cited his kinship with their feelings in this coincidence with his origin. More than any others, he said, such Americans should prize freedom, oppose oppression, and be receptive to the idea of postwar cooperation to preserve peace. As a humorous sidelight in his career, Willkie said that he had lived most of his life in communities which customarily gave most of their votes to democratic candidates. He said be had lived at Rushwood, Elwood and Bloomington, Ind., Goffeyville, Kara., Akron, Ohio, and New York, N. Y. She said she wouldn't be able to face her mother if she failed to do what she could to support Willkie's candidacy. Willkie recalled humorously that their fathers frequently had opposed each other in court as rival attorneys; On snch 'homey remarks' «s these Willkie drew chuckles and applause from audiences in Milwaukee county, which in 1940 gave him 78,731 fewer votes than it cast for President Roosevelt. Willkie called no attention to this verdict, but said he -was religiously committed to the overthrow of a national administration which he was convinced had remained in power until it was no longer attuned to the electorate's needs and desires.

CENSORS PRAISE MORALE OF IU TROOPS IN ITALY Say Soldiers Usually Don't Exaggerate But Tend to Understate Washington, (U,fi -- The U. S. army's morale in Italy is high. Nobody knows this better than the censors. "Our boys write about the war as though it were a cream-puff duel," according to 1st Lt, Frank T. Slather of (1517 Hawkins St.) Nashville, Tcnn. Mather supervises the work of a number of regimental censors of a regiment in the 45th division, composed of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Oklahoma former National Guardsmen. The chief letter - writing characteristic of American soldiers is to understate, he declared in a report from 5th army headquarters received here. "They rarely dramatize or mention the horrors of total war," he said. "They're content to cripe about small things, such as not getting enough chocolate candy iu their rations, and will ear about bombings and artillery attacks. "To me their letters indicate that, come Hell or high water- and they have been getting both-they're still able to laugh, "One mart recently spent 3-quarters of a letter giving his opinions on the situation which he considered hopeless to the Germans. 1 deleted so much' I thought it would be best to return the letter to him for rewriting. His next letter got around the whole thing by advising his family to ignore' the newspapers arid start reading Gibbon's 'Decline and .Fall of the Roman Empire.'" One of the most- trying problems, according to 1st Lt. Charlie L. Bennett of (613 N. Broadway) Hugo,Okla., comes up when a man wants to write home about a friend who has become a casualty. "From the standpoint of the injured man, there's good reason why this shouldn't be done. His actual condition is likely io be exaggerated, causing the family unnecessary anxiety." Army rumors are so spontaneous and so subject to exaggeration that letters to kin of casualties are only permitted when the facts are fully substantiated, and only after it is reasonably sure that an official notification has reached the nearest kin. The censors know they are running neck and neck with the first sergeants in the army's traditional unpopularity sweepstakes. "I know I've been called every name in the book, not to mention a few choice references ad-libbed," 1st Lt. John Titko of (2065 Was- cana Ave.) Lakewood, O.. said, "I can sympathize with the men. Tm sure this is one of the most thankless jobs in the army." Titko cited the example of a soldier trying to tell his family why he was so happy, describing minutely a nice bivoua'c area, olive groves, lush countryside, and naming a town. "He'll drag my name through the' Italian mud when he gets the answer to this," Titko said. Soldiers are forbidden io identify places where they are or mention commanding officers of the rank of colonel or above. These rules only make common sense, 1st Lt. William P. Galvin of (410 W. 22nd St.) Cedar Falls, Iowa, declared. "Any soldier has a pretty good conception of information that would be valuable to the enemy. U he would only develop writing from that.standpoint, censorship would become practically an extinct art." Because V-mail is photographed in reduced size, censorable lines are obliterated with pencil. Censors make deletions from enclosed letters with scissors. For that reason soldier's correspondence must be on only one side of the page. Each company appoints one of its officers mail censor, and he, in turn, elicits whatever aid he can IrCm his brother lieutenants. The job is strictly extra-curricular, being in adilion to an officer's regular duties. picked 2 other winners in the I midwest--Buchanan at Cincinnati and Wilson at St. Louis.

In a normal and healthy person there can be no sinusitis. In sinusitis the human framework is entirely out of mechanical balance. The body is not in plumb. There is muscular and nerve irritation which causes faulty posture. The arms and legs are of uneven length--thus creating a sacro-llliac or sacro - l u m b a r distortion. The cure consists in making; scientific mechanical corrections, so as to relieve and correct the true cause of this ailment. This is accomplished by scientific manipulation and in reasonable tune the sinuses are normal and remain so and correction is GUARANTEED to be soothing and painless.
