18 Thursday, Feb. 17, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Citation for Malta Made in Nine Days Washington. U.R--When President Roosevelt presented the Malta citation to the people of that island on Dec. 17, 1943, he gave them one of the most swiftly planned and executed historical documents in the history o£ printing. The Malta citation had been prepared in the United States by 10 employes of the government printing office less than 9 days under conditions ot the utmost secrecy. These 10 were the only people in the printing office who knew the itinerary of the president's trip and knew that this document must be rushed to him in record time 1 At the time Public Printer Augustus E. Giegengack was informed that he svould have to produce a copy of the Malta citation in 9 days, he and his staff had no idea of the design, style of colors to be used in printing the citation or the case that would enclose it. A number of suggestions were submitted, and 3 days later the 10 men began work on the chosen design. The work, requiring the utmost skill and craftsmanship, was accomplished entirely by hand. On Nov. 24, at 2:45 p. m., the citation was delivered to the white house, complete with a protective walnut case and the padded canvas bag in which it was to be shipped to Malta. Completing the citation 15 minutes before the white house deadline, the government printing office had accomplished a miracle of printing in record time. BOOK-OF-WEEK REVIEWS POSTED Youth Corner at Library Asks Reviews A book of the week review by a young person will be posted in the youth corner and in the children's room at the library each week for the rest of the winter beginning on Feb. 22, Washington's birthday,'and on each Tuesday thereafter. The review club which Mrs. George Ludeman inaugurated, is flourishing. Visitors stop and read the reviews on the bulletin boards, some 20 in number, and new notes by persons who are interested iri books are coming in. As those notes that have been up for some time are taken down they are Hied in a folder for reference use at the main desk. George Washington, in 1790, in a speech to both houses of congress pointed out that "kiiowledre is iu every country the surest basis of public happiness." At the public library in Mason City the young people's book re- view club will be set up to fit in with the comments by older library users for the sole purpose of the promulgation of knowledge and the promotion of public hao- piness. Many young people will enjoy joining in this program o f snai ._ ing ideas on books. The notes should be from 25 to 50 words in length and may be left at the main desk or in the children's room. It will be of interest to have young people sign whether they are in junior college, high school, junior high or grade school students and the name of school in addition to full name. Readers may submit as many reviews as they wish and as often as they wish but any one entry will be considered by the Book- of-the-Week sifting committee only once for first place. All reviews will be kept on file at the library, however, as possible material for a Book Pilot similar to the-one published last summer. Share-a-ride has become a familiar slogan. Sharing your enthusiasm for, a bok you like will add to the "public happiness" which Washington knew rested on knowledge.

NAZI TROOPS ENTER TRAP 1.1 Yanks Take 80 Prisoners Easily By LYNN HE1NZERLING With the 5th Army at Cassino Feb. 16--(Delayed) -- /P)-!_ German after German would walk up to the door, click his heels and inquire: "1st der Herr Hauptmann da?" Second Lt. Paul M. Kroerner o Pontiac, 111., would reply; "J a der captain is here" (in German' and take another prisoner. Koerner and 3 othet Americans were sitting in a captured German command post on the edge of Cairo, north of Cassino. The German captain who was supposed to be in command was lying dead in a ravine outside. Koerner isn't sure how many Germans fell into his trap that day--the day he and 10 other Americans captured Cairo--but al told he picked up about 80 prisoners. ' Cairo had to be taken before the Americans could make their attack on Monastery hill above Cassino. By some freak tactics Koerner found himself headin" into town with 22 men and 4 tanks. The first thing that happened was that a German self-propelled gun and 2 tanks got between Koerner's platoon and the village The lieutenant and Pvt. Joseph J. Smith of Bockford, 111., were riding atop one of the American tanks and firing their carbines when the self-propelled gun came into' sight about 100 yards away With Koerner directing- the fire, the tank put the gun out of commission with one shell and, with 3 more wrecked one of the German tanks. The tank then began attacking various fortified houses on the edge of tiie village. "We picked up about 30 prisoners in 4 houses soon after we knocked off-the tank," Koerner said. "It got so crowded I finally had to send some men back with prisoners," Koerner said. "Almost ever}' · house in Cairo was fortified but we finally reached the center of town with everything clear out behind. "A c o u p l e of men were wounded, so I decided to sit there and hold the town for awhile. Just then an Italian came up and pointed out a house on the far side of town and said there were a lot of jerries there. "I had only 10 men then. We sot within 50 yards of the house and turned a bazooka on it A tank opened up with 3 rounds and we surrounded the house. Pretty soon out came 31 more prisoners, 4 of- licers and 27 men--a complete battalion staff. The captain decided not to surrender and he finally was killed." The Germans held all the peaks looking down on Cairo and Americans had been trying to get into the town for a week. Koerner and his platoon were the first to get in and, although 5 of his men were wounded, Koerner decided to hold the town He established outposts and with 3 of his men took over the battalion headquarters he had just cleared. "That's how we got the opportunity to spend a pleasant afternoon telling inquisitive Germans ·ja, der captain is here,' "--he said. Oregon Cars Scrapped at Rate of 60 Per Day Salem, Ore., (U.R)--Sixty Oregon automobiles go to the scrap heap every day, Flo'd Cook, executive secretary of the highway department's t r a f f i c advisory committee, revealed. "Approximately 4,160 cars are junked daily across the nation," Cook said. "And about 21,000 Oregon cars are scrapped every year. Junking has continued at this rate for the past 2 years, but the rate will increase as repairs and replacements become scarcer "Possibly 75,000 Oregon cars will have disappeared from the highways within the next 3 years And should t h e war end about that time, those cars won't be replaced immediately, for it would be about 6 months before manufacturers could retool for automobiles." Heat Control System Is Ready for Postwar Minneapolis, U,R--The Minneapolis-Honeywell Co. became one of the first companies in the country to tell about its postwar product with an announcement that it has perfected an automatic heat-control system which will eliminate drafts from the postwar home. .Charles B. Sweatt, Honeywell vice president, said the heating f? S ! em '! a low - cost adaptation of that used m schools and large office buildings to maintain constant room temperatures. "Basic principle of the system," he saia, "is to provide an exact ?r° U ^u. o£ heat in a continuous Jow. This differs widely from the present method where heat is supplied intermittently, causing house temperatures to fluctuate over a wide temperature range." He said the control system would be usable not only in the most modern of postwar homes, but also in prewar models. CHEAP AT THAT PRICE Boston, (U,R)--Every time she sings G above 'high-C, Virginia McWatters, who plays the maid in the musical hit "Rosalinda," is awarded a penny by the cast. The award goes into her bond savings. FINDS HOME TO RENT jJ Clovis, N. Mex., '(#)--Police! | Chief Leonard Pinnix who camei here recently from Albuquerque, I had been unable to find a housed to rent.
