WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 10," 1945 Girl, to Whose Bed Father Came From Pacific Area, Dies Aurora, III., (#)--Patricia Attaway's 3 months old fight for life against lymphatic leukemia, which attracted nation wide attention when her seabee father flew from the south Pacific to be at her becj- side, ended in death Tuesday night. ' The 7 year old girl, stricken last October with the rare blood disease which destroys the red corpuscles, died in her sleep with · her father and mother at her bedside. Patricia's father, Chief Petty Officer M. F. Attaway, was to have left Wednesday, an extension of his original leave having expired. Before his daughter's RCSINOL MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE death, the Aurora mayor and city council requested a 2nd extension from his commanding officer at Camp Endicott, R, I. Hillman: PAC Will Back Republicans With International Views Tucson, Ariz., (/P)--Sidney Hillman, head of the CIO political action committee, says that the PAC would support "republicans with an international point of view, but who do not meet labor's full requirements,- ahead of an isolationist Jaborite." Hillman, who made the statement Tuesday night in an interview, with William R. Mathews, publisher of the Arizona Daily Star, has been resting at desert guest ranch near here. ACBEAGE SOLD Convith--Mr. and. Mrs. Charteo Perkins of Britt sold their acreage in the west part of town to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Moldenhauer. At present the house is tenanted by Mrs. Beryl Wyatt and son David. The Moldenhauers will take possession April 1. THE MEAT SITUATION · January, 1945 WHERE'S THE MEAT? The other day the American Meat Institute got a Jetter from an American citizen asking a direct question. The letter says: "Who is getting all those steaks? Certainly we are not getting them at home. According to my friends at the front, they are not getting them, either." The answer is: * ' Mighty few of those steaks are going to the front lines. The greatest quartermaster corps in the world can't serve charcoal-broiled steaks in foxholes, or pork tenderloins on a beachhead. *. This is a war of movement, and soldiers on the move . --in tanks, in planes, in trucks, or on foot--naturally get concentrated, easily, transported rations that do not require refrigeration. Even in peacetimes, there never were enough choice steaks in this country to go around. ; GREATEST GOVERNMENT NEEDS IN HISTORY Now the government has stepped up its purchase ot all meats. Out of a decreasing supply, it is getting about one-third of the total production of the meat- packing industry... nearly half of the choice cuts. Where do those choice cuts go? Who gets them? They are going to our fighting forces behind the lines established army and navy bases, to military rest /tomes, to training centers, to military and naval hospitals, and onto ships with refrigeration facilities. Under war conditions three times as much meat per fighter must be available as he ate as a civilian. Why? War destroys some. Some most be left behind. Some must be ready at destinations. Meat and plenty of it is a must in fighters' diets. » Your meat industry's job is to prepare good meat for our fighters, whether it's C rations for a tank crew, steaks for the men in a submarine or on a warship, or chops for chow in a rest camp. Who would question their needs at a time like this? What About Civilians? In the wtekt to come cirili«n« should, according to government eitimatti for the country «» a whole, huve an average of slightly lew than 214 pounds of meat per week--rationed and unrationed. This compares with somewhat more · "·· vjw.*,j*«4K» mvn somewnac more than 3 pound* per we«k per person during tha corresponding weeks of 1M4. How fan you manage? Make the most of the meat you get. Learn how to servs more meat meals with less. Serve it with other good foods to "extend" its flavor. Then you can keep the fine flavor and good nutrition of meat on the table regularly. Remember--regardless of cut or kind, price or points, meat is a yardstick of protein foods, because meat measures up to everv protein need.

By DEW1TT MACKENZIE Associated Press-War Analyst The word for which we've been vaiting since Bataan and "the march of death!"--Me Arthur .has landed on Luz o n a n d t h e pivotal battle o f . the war of the f Pacific has been joined. With consummate audaciousness the American commander has flung an y army ashore on f ' Lingayen g u l f near the same spot employed MACKENZIE by the victorious Japanese when they invadec the Philippines 3 years ago. He hit straight for the strategically logical point of entrance, as Nippon's own General Homma, conqueror of the Philippines, predicted that the Americans woulc have to do. Tokyo says we have landed 60,000 troops from the 70 mile long convoy of 800 ships to challengi what might have been a desperati defense on the beaches. The flee entered the gulf under the pro tection ot a terrific air and nava barrage, and contrary to expec tations encountered small resist ance. As a result we quickly es tablished a 15 mile beach-heai and pushed rapidly inland to giv the position the depth necessary for security. Thus t h e MacArthur-Nimlt brotherhood has made a fine be finning of this crucial operation It likely is far better Uian the had dared hope for, since the must have expected to encounte greater enemy resistance in th Ir and from shore batteries, and o have to fight up bloody beaches. However, we shouldn't make the istake of assuming that because le initial landing was easy, this s the gauge o£ the fight to come. This closing phase ,of the battle of he Philippines bids fair to be long nd sanguinary. For the first time n the Pacific conflict we have 2 ig armies facing each other in erritory which is sufficiently pen so that there can be a full cale war of movement. The Japanese are powerfully set or the clash, and may be ex- jected to make a last-ditch stand or this island, which is one of he keystones ot their war struc- ure. Their light resistance against iur landing may have been due n part to doubt as to just where MacArthur expected to put his main force ashore. However, it's not unlikely that General Yama- hita, the enemy commander, decided he would serve his interests better if he didn't try to defend he beaches under what he knew would be an absolutely annihilat- "ng barrage of bombs and shells. We may be sure "ihat Yamashita has his plans for counterattack. And he's a soldier of grea' capabilities. MacArthur is up against a foe who is worthy of his steel and one who is bound to battle to a finish tor this, vital base. The Jap war-lords can't long run their lighting machine without possession of the Philippines With Luzon in our hands we shai have a base which dominates the Japanese life-line to their Eas Indies supplies, and which wil enable us to strike by air and by sea at the China coast, the pow erful naval-air base of Formosc and the Japanese mainland itself So the honor of the Mikado is in .'amashita's hands. While the Jap ommander may be expected to )ut up a terrific fight, he is up gainst one handicap which in it- elf is enough to beat him in the ong run. He will be virtually cut iff from outside supplies. ' Add to this the fact that MacArthur knows the Philippines mil- tarily as probably no other man does, and Yamashita's goose is Booked.
