MONDAY, JANUARY 8, 19*5 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE By EDITORS OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JIIHAT HAPPENS in 1945 hinges *» on one big IF and a WHEN. If Germany surrenders early in he year, changes will sweep across the nation, affecting virtually all fields of activity. Here s how new year prospects look no w: · WAR: The immediate outlook is fairly grim. The Hillerian war should end in 1945, but that won't ng peace. It will release a ilood ot politico-social upheavals--some oloody--which will sweep all of Europe. There will be repercussions in Asia and in the western hemisphere. War with Japan will reach its peak, but it will be a miracle if the Allies achieve victory short of 1946. China will hit rock bottom, broken materially though not spiritually, and dependent on the Allies to rescue her. Russia will assume her new title o£ dominant power of Europe'and Asia alike. '·· · · · INDUSTRY: Prolonging of war In Germany past 1944 and the prospect of a longer Pacific campaign have dimmed industry's hopes-for expanded civilian goods production in 1945. · Reconversion timing has been upset. It is now estimated it wil be at least G months after V-E day before "hard goods"--refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, etc.-will be available generally. Even then there won't be enough t supply all immediate needs. A-few new passenger cars may appear in the 2nd half of the year They will be slightly altered 194 types, with changes confinei largely to trimming, radiato grilles and fender lines. Later, aft er the first postwar'models, ther will · be many changes in powe plants, transmissions and me chanical designing generally. Pric increases apparently are inevit Me--estimates range from 10 to 0 per cent over pre-war levels. Scarcities will persist through- ut the year. Textiles may come nto greater supply 3 months after '-E. Fuel rationing is likely to ontinue until war with Japan is ended. There probably will be no etup on strained U. S. transpor- ation systems. · LABOR: Organized labor will lave big problems after Germany s defeated. Membership may nose-dive as war production cuts lown. The CIO, built on war- soomed industrial organization, ears this and is planning for it. Despite AFL overtures, 'a CIO- AFL union appears remote. But he AFL still hopes to get back fohn L. Lewis and his 600,000 United Mine Workers. With Germany's fall, there is ikely to be a large back-home movement among the present 16,- 00,QOO woman workers. Many lowever, will continue their careers with ever broader opportunities. · AGRICULTDRE: The new year puts 2 major problems before Earmers. They will have to maintain near-record food production for the military and civilians, although still short of labor and machinery, and plan for · recon version to peace-time conditions Early defeat of Germany could pose the problem of preventing a sharp break in foreign prices ant the start of a new farm depres siorj, such as occurred after Worl War I. · FOOD: The outlook is one o contrasts -- shortages of som items, plentiful supplies of others the situation points to continue use of ration stamps for bette grades of meats, butter, sugar canned foods, fruits, cheese and fe\v other processed items, and t restricted civilian consumption o fluid milk. Poultry will be scare during the first part of the yea The Associated Press editors vho have contributed to this fore- ast of 1945 are; Jack L. Bell, political news edi- or; Howard \V. Blakeslee, science ditor; Charles E. Butterfield, adio editor; Thomas Hagenbucb, inancial editor; Dewltt Macken- ic,, war and foreign affairs an- lyst; Ovid A. Martin, farm writ- r; Jack O'Brian. drama, editor; Jorothy Roe, women's editor; :hip Royal. Newsfeatures sports editor; John Selby, arts editor; larold W. Ward, labor editor; David J. Wilkie, automotive edi- ;or. Total supply of meats--particularly pork and lamb--and of iugar, fats and vegetable oils, is expected to be smaller than^in [344. On the other band, cereals, truck crops, dried greens and peas and eggs should be plentiful. Po- iatoes may be scarce in the spring before new crops come on the market. POLITICS: Republicans will he waiting watchfully for democratic mistakes,' planning a Congressional comeback in 1946. The G. O. P high command may change, with Herbert Brownell, Jr., stepping ou as national chairman. Gov. Thomas E. Dewey will patch fences for his 1946 re-election race for the New York governorship. If he win that, he will be in the presidentia picture again in 1948. Candidacies may begin to bu for the 1948 democratic presiden tial nomination. President Roose velt, who has killed .off simila moves in the past, may let sev eral hopefuls have their fling There's still discontent in th democratic south, aimed at part "domination" by big-city machine and labor. The CIO, flushed wit its role in the 4th - term victory may reach out into new fields. America's part in an interna tional organization to keep peac is likely to top all home front is sues. Gasoline Output Now at Maximum; Military Demands Come First Washington, (1J.R)-- Gasoline output is now at its maximum and if military requirements increase beyond present demands, American . motorists will., have to get along on-less fuel in* 1945;'Deputy Petroleum Administrator Ralph K. TJavies said Monday. ^'Manufacturers and refineries are now operating close to capacity/' Davies told the United Press. "We are now satisfying present military demands in full as well as supporting the present civilian rations." · "But if military demands i crease much we would have to meet them at the expense of the American civilians." . The only chance of more gasoline for American motorists is a sudden end to the war in Europe, Davies said. In such an unlikely event, he said, military demands would undoubtedly be reduced sufficient to afford more liberal supplies for civilian consumption over . and ab'jve relief needs in European countries. "I believe the difference wouk be felt at home within 30 days after the end of the war. Hundreds of planes which fly over enemy Europe daily would not be flying, tanks and motorized equipment of all sorts would greatly reduce their activities, with a resulting sharp decline in fue needs," he said. Jny Chinese Baby Is Among Those Flown rorri China-India Area San Pedro, Cat,, (/P)--A 24 day Id Chinese baby, born premature- y aboard a ship under enemy fire, vas one of several hundred civil- ans and scores of army and navy asualties brought here'by transport from the China-Burma-India var theater. The girl, Yu Hai-Hu, \veighed 5% pounds when she was born to he wife of Yu Shih-Peng/en route 0 Venezuela as 3rd secretary of the Chinese legation. Navy doctors aved the mother and kept the baby alive without an incubator. The birth took place while the ship's gun crews were fighting off 1 Japanese aerial attack, other passengers said. ,, "We named our daughter Yu iai-Hu because it means Tiger of :he Sea," commented the proud father. Among other passengers were \ T avy Lt. Ralph B. Bell of Davison, Mich., and his Australian bride Sach started the trip without ·cnowing the other was aboard the ship, they said. In 1945, about 15 per cent mon bananas than in 1 1344 will b _ available to American consumers The increase, which still is onl; about 40 to 50 per cent of (fie pro war supply, is a result ot a sligh ease in the shipping situation from Central America and Mexico. i RF SOOTHES YOU* THROAT below the gargle line Each F t F Cough Lozenge gives your throat a 15 minute comforting treatment.

SCIENCE: Four i m p o r t a n t .edical trends are indicated.'The nsect powder DDT will curb tmch malaria and can conceivably ripe out that disease--and typhus ever--eventually. In the United States, where neither disease is revalent, the powder will be ef- Sctive- in reducing digestive roubles spread by flies and some sther household insects. Penicillin vill develop further uses and may tart the elimination of syphilis. Blood substitutes and new drugs and remedies made from human blood are in prospect. Under leadership of sulfa, an important advance can be expected in preventive medicine. The year will see rapid progress oward faster and higher, and ul- .imately improved planes, due to "et and rocket propulsion. These developments will be military, anc their civilian uses are unlikely to attract much attention in 1945. But Ihe jets--and even Germany's V-2's--are laying foundations for new means of passenger travel. e FASHION: There probably wil_ be greater femininity, less severe lines, a new elegance, in after-dark attire, preparing for the celebration ot V-E Day. · · · SPORTS: More schools, league: and performers will come out o war-forced retirement. Many ath letes who have been dischargee from the services will be back in 1945 to start what should be th greatest boom sports has known Baseball expects to gain a fe\ old hands who should bring th standard of {he game back to nor mal.

But the big splash will come after apan's defeat, since it is expected 85 per cent of present radio production will be tied up in the Pacific war. * Television backers predict many improvements, .including a new lome large screen receiver pro- "ecting an 18 by 24-inch picture. A §250 price has been mentioned as possible for television sets. It's unlikely that any of these will be available in the new year, however. . More symphonies -- meaning better music -- are coming on the air. But the quiz shows and the much criticized daytime serials are holding firm--there now are 51 soap operas a day on the 4 big networks. THE ARTS: If the graph established by 1344 continues its pattern, the hew year will be the most prosperous in America's history. More concerts are being given, and more people are hearing them. For phonograph lovers 1945 will probably produce more fine new recordings of music 1 than any year in memory. The public has found books good substitutes for many war- hit recreations, and soldiers arid sailors have made companions , of books through millions of copies of "overseas" editions." Many publishers expect a postwar tendency toward reductions in book prices. LEWIS LARSON DIES SUDDENLY Funeral at Ward's Wednesday, 2 p. m. Clear Lake--Funeral services for Lewis Larson, 50, who died suddenly at Cherokee Saturday afternoon, willl be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at Ward's funeral home. The Rev. Ruben Mostrom, Zion Lutheran pastor, will conduct the service and burial will be in Clear Lake cemetery. Mr. Larson was born in Clear Lake Aug. 11, 1894, the son of William and Ellen Larson, now deceased. He attended the public schools in Clear Lake, growing to manhood in this community. For several years previous to the advent of Ihe automobile, Mr. Larson attended the horses of the late Dr.' C. E. Wright and Gilbert N. Mclntosh, both of Clear Lake. He was unmarried. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Mrs. Emma Jensen, who died Yankton, S. Dak., May 4, 1944, and is buried at Clear Lake. \ He is survived by 2 sisters, Mrs. Millard Peterson, Maiden, Wash., and Mrs. Charles (Mollie) Hansen. 615 Kimball street,, and 2 nephews in the armed services, S/Sgt. Gerald Peterson, with the artillery and now in Oklahoma, and Cpl. Kenneth Jensen, who trained at Camp Carson, Colo., and is no\y with the infantry on the Atlantic seaboard. No Hunting License; Parkhurst Fined $25 Clear Lake--Dale Parkhuvst, 27, Rockwell, was arrested Sunday by State Conservation Officers E. A. Saxlon and J. Z. Stevens.

Otto Jensen, Yankton, S. Dak., is expected to arrive Tuesday evening. Mrs. Peterson is unable to come from the west. Australians Must Cut Food Shipments Made Available to Yanks Canberra, Australia, (fl 5 )-- Acting Prime Minister Francis E Forde said Monday that there would be a reduction of Australian food supplies to the U. S, armec forces in 194o due to the severe drought, which has affected cer eals particulnrlv. During 1944 the Australian wa minister said his country supplied U. S. armed forces under the reciprocal lend-lease agreement with food valued at 400,000,000 pounds (about $128,000,000) while this year's estimated value will be P ° unds (about Backstage in Iowa Politics Nearly Half of Iowa Legislators Engaged in Farming or Allied Pursuits; Evans Temporary Outsider By PAUL R. BUMBARGER . Iowa Daily Press Writer) = pesMoines,-(IDPA)--Agriculture's close relationship to an Iowa egislature is demonstrated strikingly in the 51st general assembly Nearly half the members are engaged in farming or allied pursuits" n selecting legislative leaders those with an agricultural stamp took a lion's share of honors. Presiding officers of both branches--Lieut. Gov.-Elect K A, Evans and Speaker of the House Harold Felton--are farm operators So are he other 2 members of the all south Iowa and veteran republican eadership m the house--Rep. Edward J. Morrissev, Valeria speaker pro tern, and Rep. X. T. Prentis, Mt. Ayr, floor lea'der. . · ONLOOKER: Since he is retiring as a senator and does not take office as its presiding officer until Thursday, Lt. Gov. Evans has assumed something of the role o£ a man-without-a-country iri initial deliberations. He visited' in the Hotel Kirkwood lobby while republican senators held their secret cajucus except for an interval when he was summoned to make a brief talk. Evans will have no senate scat until mid-week when he takes the presiding officer's chair In that respect he is less fortunate than newspapermen assigned to places in press row. .y in HARMONY FIRST: Speaker Felton is a believer in harmoiy. ,,, politics. He has had opportunity to test this philosophy in personal experience. Felton was ousted along with 2 democrats from the board of control in 1939. Even though the shakeup was not construed to be directed at him, he might have issued an angry protest for public con sumption. He remained loyal to the republican party, took it in stride won support and admiration of party members in his home county and elsewhere. His election as speaker demonstrates the potency of his political comeback. SLOW PROCESS: Republican senators in caucus lived up to a senate reputation for deliberate action. A method of no nominations was lollowed in selecting leaders. Voting by paper ballots consumed an hour and a half. Nomination of Sen. B. C. Whitehill, Marshalltown, as president pro tern generally was interpreted as a senate disposition to pass honors around. High in the balloting were Senate President Frank C. Byers, Cedar Rapids, who made no active effor to be renamed, and Sen. G. R. Hill, Clarion, who was nominated for party Cloor lender.

INAUGURAL VETERAN": Ceremonies for, installing in office Gov Robert D. Blue are in the .hands of the veteran Adjutant General Charles H. Grahl, who has had a prominent role in arranging 9 gubernatorial inaugurals. General Grahl was assistant adjutant general in inaugurals for Governors HammilJand Turner. Since becoming adjutant general he has been in lull charge of arrangements during 2 inaugurals each for Governors Herring and Wilson and of ceremonies which installed Governors Kraschei and Hickenlooper General Grahl's experience in the legislature started as a senate page in 1907 and he can still call the roll of the 32nd senate. BITS: There was no smoke wreathing the smile of veteran Rep Arch McFarlane, Waterloo, when he came to the capital . . . He explained that his Scotch instinct rebelled at paying increasingly higher prices for cigars and he hadn't puffed one in a month . i . There's a report that a bill will be thrown into the legislative hopper to make federal slot machine and liquor stamps admissable in the courts as presumptive evidence . . . As a measure to combat increased living costs, several state employes are reported to have taken part-time jobs downtown in the capital. Clear Lake Briefs Remnants--14 price at Hansen's.

Although selective service did not send out any formal advice to employers about 4-F's, a spokesman said "it would be the natural p . thing" for employers to want to i obtain the k i n d of deferments which would tend io "freeze" 4-F's on their jobs.
