The 2 young flyers who deliv ered the blood risked their o\v lives by flying through a Germar flak area. They are Lts. Payne Lysne, 23, of North Dakota, an Bichard Blake of La Salle, Colo Sitting sprawled in a chair i the tent of his friend, Lt. And} Froelieh of Mandan, N. Dak., (a! blond Lysne, who was a studen 'at North Dakota State before h entered service, told of the mere} mission. "We flew regularly up to th new beachhead. This day I hai fatten back from a trip up ther about noon. At 2:36 I got a cal saying they needed blood badl in the hospitals at Anzio. "They asked me I would tak it up. I said sure. They .said ther would be only 150 pounds o blood, but when I got to the fiel there was 300 pounds, more than a Cub could possibly carry. Die Blake volunteered to fly up, too so that we wouldn't have to leav any blood behind. "We got out s to sea and ran jni a hell of a headwind and 1 kne\ our gas supply would never hoi out if we stuck to that route. Th only thing to do was to take shorter way, closer to shore. Tha meant we had to pass a point o land very heavily protected b German anti-aircraft. "We stayed down only 5 to 1 feet above the waves to keep from being observed by enemy planes You can't do any fancy court a staff in these grasshoppers. The are strictly for getting from her to there. "We flew within spitting dis tance of the German ackack bat teries, but they held their flak. "That short cut did the trick We got to our field with onb about enough gas for another 1 minutes. That's slicing it prettj thin. It was almost dark whe ·we landed and the blood wa rushed Immediately to the hospi laL "They called us up later and said: "'So far, the blood you bra ugh up has saved the lives of 12 wounded soldiers. We just wah you to know how badly it was needed.' "I was still dead tired from making the '2 trips, but that gave me a 3ift. 1 would never do i again, though." The lieutenant paused grimier, a little and added: "Unless it was for the same reason." Lysne had a private pilot's license before the war. He · has given many generals trips over the battlefronts, including General Clark, the commander of the 5th army. "I also have flown Ma]. Gen John K. Cannon, commander ol the tactical airforce," he said. "If you are listing all y o u r bigshot passengers don't forget me," called Forelich from a cot in the corner of the 1 lent. "General Clark can fly "the plane himself," said Lysne, "but he doesn't land or take off over here. He is very pleasant, the kind of a man you like to ride with." Lysne has never lost a passenger or banged up a plane. "Never even scratched the props," he said. Mexican Women Want to Drive Streetcars Mexico City, (U.R)---Women may soon become streetcar conductors in Mexico City, if the plan submitted by Mrs. Celia Ramirez of Feminine Action to Gov. Javier Hojo Gomez of the federal district receives consideration. The pretty young woman who heads Feminine Action and represents her group on the governors' civilian defense council said the streetcar conductors' union already had agreed to teach a class oE women to drive streetcars, and the only thing holding up the plan was the governor's approval. Feminine Action likewise Want 1 ; its women to receive military and telegraph instruction, so that they can step into those jobs as part of their "bit" toward the war effort. Governor Rojo Gomez has promised to give Mrs. Ramirez's suggestions an early answer. Electron Microscope Reaches Fine Details Austin, Texas, (U.R)--University of Texas physicisls are using a new electron microscope now to · examine fine detail in infinitesimal objects which an ordinary microscope could not distinguish. Dr. J. ar, Kuehne, veteran professor of physics at the university explained that beams of electrons are hundreds of times smaller than light waves and consequently maintain their accuracy under much stronger magnification. Dr. Kuehne says the electron microscope--which uses the electron beams instead of light beams- can magnify accurately as high as 6 million times. "Although the eleciron beam shadows are themselves invisible " Dr. Kuehne said, "they are very effectively registered on fine grain photographic plates and These. cas!ly can be further enlarged by ordinary optical means, until the finest detail recorded in the image 11 can be visually distinguished." Farm Workers Must Meet Goals to Retain Deferments the light of increased crop goals* for 1944. Selective s e r v i c e announced that boards are not expected to continue to defer a farm worker unless he produces "by his- own personal and direct efforts" at least 16 "war units" a year. Heretofore registrants have been considered for deferment if they produced 8 or more "war units"-which were formulated by the agriculture department as a measure of agricultural activity. There was no estimate of how many farmers the new policy would throw ·.into', the armed forces. But selective service left no doubt that it was taking drastic action. High draft officials had prepared the public for the order in " recent speeches at Chicago, ·arnipif that farm workers soon ./ill find it harder to qualify for deferments under the Tydings jmendmenr. Local boards will first go through the list of registrants in class 2-C, in sequence of order numbers. There are more than -,000,000 non-fathers deferred in agriculture, and most of them are n 2-C, the classification for men deferred solely, because of farm work. . Those in this class who con- Jnue to qualify for deferment under the new regulations will be -eclassified in 2-C for 6 months r less, and then their cases will be reopened again. When a local board has re- ,'iewed all its 2-C men, it will Jtart on class 3-C, which'consists of men deferred not only for agriculture but also because of hav- ng dependents. This class, in the lequence of order numbers, will 5e liquidated altogether, in the jame manner as class 3-A, because dependency is no longer a ground for deferment. Those in 3-C who can still qualify for a farm determent will" be put in 2-C. Under the Tydings amendment lo the selective service act, men found by local boards to be "necessary to and regularly engaged n" essential agricultural occupa- lions must be deferred as long as no replacements can be obtained. But Thursday's announcement said increased crop goals and the over-all manpower shortage now necessitate cancelation of defer- nents of men "not V contributing hrough their own personal efforts heir share of labor and produc- ion to agriculture's intense war effort." * Selective service pointed out that of the 1,700,000 men in lasses 2-C and 3-C, 400,000 are ingle men below 22 years old. t also pointed out that in war iroduction and war-supporting activities--aside from agriculture -less than 125,000 non-fathers be- IT'S THE "CO-BRA"_.Anne Jeffreys (above) former model now playing the 2nd feminine lead opposite Frank Sinatra in "Manhattan Serenade," models a somewhat starting playsuit brassiere made trom the skins of the hooded king cobra; Anne, with some help from her press agent, nicknamed it the "Cobra." She said the snake skins were sent to her by an American soldier stationed in Burma.
