Address Pattern Department Globe-Gazette, 121 W. ISUi St New York, 11, N. W. FAYING PROPOSITION M. H. Thompson, living neai Hudson, has turned his spare time into a profitable venture. Sometime ago, Thompson sent a ship ment of 1,000 pounds of liv^ snapping turtles to a New York firm. Last week, he sent a 2nd 1,000 pound shipment to the same firm. Thompson, an experienced trapper, hunter and angler, found the turtles at the bottom of Black Hawk creek. Asked to Be Thrown From Flying Fort By DOUGLAS WERN'EK A Bomber Base in EugUuid, (U.R) --The radio operator turned his slinded, bleeding eyes to the top turret gunner and pleaded: "Throw me out ... I'm hit badly and no use to you now. It'll save 175 pounds and maybe get you back to England." They told about it at this base Tuesday as they framed a recommendation lor a congressional medal of honor for that radio operator--Technical Sgt. Forrest L. Voslcr of Livonia, N. Y. The turret gunner didn't. Jettison Vosier and the shell-battered fortress plunged into the English channel after the crew had dumped out everything else that was movable in an effort to stretch its last fe\y pints of gasoline. But that's getting ahead of the story. To go back to air battle over Germany m which the fortress "Jersey Bounce" was pounced on cannon-firing German fighters-Two of the Tort's engines were shot out by flak and the "Jersey Bounce" dropped from formation The fighters crowded in for the kill. One shell burst in Voslei-'s radio cubicle. Fragments pierced his legs, chest, lace and eyes. A direct hit on the tail disabled the tail gun and knocked out the tail gunner. Vosier struggled to his gun hut his legs and thighs were perforated by shell fragments anil wouldn't support him. He crawled on his table and groped for his machine gun. The German fighters were just a blur but he kept his machine gun hot. Just before the fighters turned away one last 20 mm. shell burst squarely in front of-Vosler's face. More fragments tore in his face and eyes. The crew began to throw equipment overboard, hoping to nurse the staggering ship across the channel. Vosier stumbled about blood streaming from his face. Working by touch, he rigged an emergency radio set and bent ovei the key to send out repeated SOS calls. Now and again he toppfec over the key unconscious. Always he would recover and continue the call . . . "SOS . . . SOS . . . SOS.' Then he made a decision. He called to top turret gunner Staff Sgt. Standlcy E. Moody of Lewiston, Maine, and asked him to toss him through the hatch to lighten the load by another 175 pounds. It might be enough to stretch oul the gasoline so the rest cou!] make the English shore. Vosier reminded Moody .that he always had said before the beginning that lie wanted to be throwr out of the plane if ever he was ieriously wounded. Moody refused--gently. The big ship plunged into the channel and Vosier crawled out ot the radio hatch. He held the wounded tail gunner from sliding oft a wing until they were able o get into a dingy. The rescue launch arrived in a lew minutes. At first doctors believed both Vosler's eyes would have to be ·emoved. Lately there has been mprovemeiit and he has been able to distinguish light with his right eye. "There's not much improvement o be expected from the left eye," Flight Surgeon Harold Broady of )f Lowell, Mass., said. "There may ae somo chance of improvement u the right eye. The flak in the rest ot his body will in time be removed." Officers hoped Vosier would be able to see a general pin that congressional medal on his tunic. He s the second member of the Hells Angels bomber group to be recommended for the congressional meda4 in recent weeks. The first ivas 2d Lt. Charles W. Spencer o£ Peoria, 111, bombardier who stuck Lo his post although badly frozen. More Holes Appear in Pittston; Fear Sink in Residential Areas rillston, Pa., (IP) -- A new wave of fear swept this anthracite city of 18,000 Tuesday after 2 yawning holes opened in the earth and a "squeeze," caused by the sagging of mine pillars, threatened to sink the ground from under large residential areas. Mine experts said the squeeze might portend a general weaken ing of tunnel supports and wholesale cavein. Mayor John J. Heilly and city and state legislators arranged a trip to the Pennsylvania state capitol at Hatrisburg to ask the state bureau of mines for help, possibly in flooding abandoned tunnels. Sections ot the city were roped off temporarily Monday after new cracks appeared, one a few feet from the spot where Julc Ann Fulmer, 2, was swallowed alive when the earth gave way under her feet last week. The other occurred in an area where 150 homes were damaged a year ago when the earth's surface dropped G to feet below its normal level. Leniency Ends i in Regard to Ration Sales Leniency in enforcement of the ·ules applying to ration sales of jasoliiie became a thing of the past this week in the 04 counties comprising the Des Moines district of the office of price administration, it was declared Wednesday at Des Moines by Donald D. Holdoegel, district enforcement attorney. The period of warning, during which distributors and retail dealers were specifically instructed on the regulations governing gasoline sales coupons, ended Feb. 14 and strict enforcement with penalties for violations is now in order, he declared. Hereafter, all irregular coupons will be rejected by the Ol'A, the gallonaffe involved will be charged back to the supplying distributor, and he in turn must recover from the ,relail dealer who submitted them. This procedure will make it possible for OPA to trace to their origin all illegally used or counterfeit coupons. Holdoegel appealed especially to consumers to assist in the gasoline black market war by endorsing their coupons at once, by retaining coupons in the book and not detaching them until the actual time o£ gasoline purchase, and by immediately reporting to the closest OPA office any person offering to jell coupons in any form or any icrson known to be selling or buying coupons. "There is a decidedly limited ·upply of gasoline for civilian use," Holdoegel declared. "Unless loiicst consumers do their part toward elimination of the gasoline Jlack market, they cannot expect .heir fair and rightful share of what is available."
