TANKS CAPTURE 30 GERMANS lowatt Leads Group in j Beachhead Engagement By REYNOLDS PACKARD Anzio Beachhead, Italy, Feb. 21. (U.R)--An army team composed of a, traveling salesman, a'city fireman and a farmer Eet a new record lor American tanks at this beachhead by capturing 30 Germans in an engagement without the aid of infantry. 1st Lt. Darwin Adams, the traveling salesman from Des Moines, Iowa, commanded the group of tanks, which also mowed down 60 enemy soldiers in the same encounter. From his commanding tank, Adams noticed the Germans were using a farmhouse as a machine- sun nest and ordered one unit to Shell it and another to capture prisoners. While big holes were being knocked in the house, 2nd Lt. Harry Miller, city fireman from Pittsburgh, Pa., charged his tank into one side. Sgt, Clyde Cooper, a farmer from Conyers, Ga., plowed into the other side. As IKe Germans came running out, Miller and Cooper pursued them with machine-guns and 75's, rounding up 30 of them. Herding the captives between the tanks, they marched them half a mile over no man's land and turned them over to military police. The American tank "Zigzag," however, had a more trying experience during the front line battling. Commanded by Sgt. Theodore Thayer, Helena, Mont., "Zigzag" at one time was surrounded completely by a company of German infantry, but the crew opened its guns and killed more than a score ' of enemy in breaking through to safety. While the crewmen were thankful to escape, they were bitter over the damage to their personal belongings and the tank, which was dented from bullets and shrapnel. . The gunner, Pvt. Jerome Lackman, La Crosse, Wis., said: "You might know it they got a bullet right through by bedroll that I brought all the way from Wisconsin. Now the air mattress won't blow up any more."

Reports Industries Plan Varied Outputs When War Is Ended DCS IWoines, (£)--A hardware company will manufacture men's toiletries, a household appliance firm will make automotive parts, an agricultural implement concern will make a food product and a plumbing company will make aviation instruments. Those are some of the ways American industries are planning to dive bomb another depression when Jhe war is ended, Donald M. Hobart, manager of the research department of the Curtis Publishing company of Philadelphia, declared Tuesday in a speech prepared for the Des Moines Advertising club. He added that a radio company will produce high frequency heating units and airplane firms plan to' make cameras, optical equipment, farm implements and household appliances. Hobart said those plans were disclosed in a recent survey he directed behind the scenes of what he termed America's biggest businesses. The survey, covering 22 major groups, largely durable goods industries, showed that 43 per cent of the companies were producing largely new products for ' war and would have a major, re- conversion job when peace comes, Hobart asserted. Security Number Not Used in Figuring Tax St. Louis, (U.R)--A social security number is supposed to appear on the long income tax form, but it is riot supposed to figure in the computation of the tax, a St. Louis couple learned--the hard way. The wife had the tax computed by a clerk. He used the long form and his result was double the tax computed by the husband on the short form. The reason: He used the first 5 figures of the social security number instead ot the salary figures. Manly--Weekend guests in the Y. M. Yoko home were Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Whitman of Clear Lake.

The continental congress, which accepted the money from De Haven in 1777 while George Washington was camped at Valley Forge, offered to repay the debt in inflationary script after the war she said, but De Haven refused/to accept the script and died before conditions returned to normal.

Had Been "Irregular" for Years! Have you often despaired of ever finding normal regularity? Then, by al) means, read this unsolicited letter: "For many long years, my mother-in- law had suffered from catnman constipation. She used to take all kinds of pills and medicines, but got no lastinar relief. Upon startinc to use KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAX. her trouble cleared up. She feels like a nc*7 person, she says. She wanted me to tell the world hcnv you* product helped her." Mrs. Polinc Balis, 73-1 East ICuth Street, Bronx. N. Y. How do scientists explain the apparent "magic" of KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN's relief? Simply thus: ALL-BRAN is one of Nature's most effective sources .of "cellulosie" elements -- lack of which in sufficient amounts m the iliet is a common cause of constipation! These elements help the friendly colonic flora fluff up and lighten the colonic wastes for eass% natural elimination. KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN doesn't work by "purging"--or by "sweeping you out." It is a. gentle-acting 1 , "regulating;" food! If this is your trouble eat KELLOGG'S ALL-BRAN rcRu-i larly. Drink plenty of water! See if you don't find the welcome relief you've hoped for! Insist on genuine ALL-BRAN, made only by Kellogg's in Battle Creek.

The organization consists of 11 separate groups, G representing breeders and 5 representing processors. The separate groups held their meetings Monday afternoon. Larabee said in his annual report that one of the major accomplishments o£ the organization during the last year had been'to obtain retraction by Iowa State college of one of its pamphlets In which oleomargarine was compared favorably with butter. Protests of the dairy industry led to the retraction, but the revised issue never has been made public. There were reports at Monday's meeting that the revised issue had been rewritten 5 times and now was in the hands of the supervising committee which had rejected it 4 times. The association announced that a decision would be reached late in March on whether to hold a Dairy Cattle Congress this year. Estoll said, however, that it was likely that, a statewide 4-H club show would be held in place of the Cattle Congress.
