f 'P 4. -i 16 U-IOATlOACE SERIOUS-DAVIS But December Sinkings of U. S. Ships Declined WASHINGTON, (U.R) -- Director Elmer Davis of the office of war information said Wednesday that German submarines did not sink as many American ships in December as in previous monlhs, but he warned that the U-boat menace Is slill very serious. Davis told a press conference that construction of merchant ships, by the united nations exceeds the number of ships being sent to the bottom. Ac Ihe same time, however, he declared that Germany continues to produce m o r e submarines monthly than are sunk bv Hie allies. "Reports indicate that December was a relatively good month in the submarine situation," Davis WAGE-PRICE RISE CAUSES CEILINGS 1941 Orders Soldiers to Leave Burning Building Wearing Gas Masks c .,, ? KANSAS CITY. IJf,-Speaking of opportunists, just put Sgt. William Breit right at the head of the list. December was better than usual, it was still bad enough to be considered serious." He said the publication by the slate department of its recent White paper disclosing Japanese plans.' as early as January, 1941, to attack Pearl Harbor remained a source of continued anger to the axis. He quoted from a German broadcast to North and South America which stated that the White paper was a "mockery made tip of lies and cowardice" and a "gigantic swindle." A R o m e broadcast described the facts contained in the White paper as a "series of counterfeits.'' Tokio broadcasts adopted the same theme, Davis said. "The general (error of the axis broadcasts indicate that they have clearly misrepresented the facts and are finding the White paper a very hard document to answer," Davis said.

Decker and Sons plant 13 months ago But he's wortji more than any of the police, according to C. H. Harrison, chief of the plant police force. "He can see and hear things, especially at night, which a man just doesn't catch," explained the chief. ^'One night he came running "up to the gate here barking and kept it up until one of the men followed him back along the fence to a clump of weeds.

His job is vital to America's war effort.. · and he'll carry on! · "Keep 'cm rolling" is more than a slogan. It's a must.' Every serviceable piece of automotive equipment is needed- needed on the road. That makes the service station dealer a vital cog in the nation's war machine. Jusr consider that-* * * Millions of war workers have no other means--except autos to get to work. In some sections over 75% of war workers reach their plants by car. Over 65'.'i of all freight going in and out of war plants is carried by truck. 54.000 communities are not readied by railroad, depend on trucks for supplies. Nearly 100?J of many viral crops are hauled to market by truck. Over 2,000 cicies depend on cars for private transportation. Every car owner must do a certain amount of necessary driving, as provided for under the rationing system. Yes! America mint remain a nation on wheels, and your Standard Oil Dealer is proud that he is playing a viral parr in America's war effort. You cm count on it--he'll carry on! S T A N D A R D O I L C O M P A N Y ( I N D I A N A ) Spot is shown in the picture with Frank Murphy, one of the men on night duty at the plant, who is holding the telephone for Spot to take a call from one of the other guard posts. In the picture inserted in the upper corner, Spot is scurrying away in answer to a call. He will take orders over file telephone only from three of the men on night duty, Mr. Murphy, Pete Durkin and John Herzog. But any of the police on guard duty can command the dog to attack a man. The packing plant with all the food which supposedly would attract a clog seemingly does not interest Spot. He would not be permitted inside, in any event, but he has never tried to wander in. He stays outside with the police, much of the time patroling the fence. Last spring when the day shift was discontinued for a time Spot made the rounds alone for several days until he became too footsore to continue the double shift. He still continued his work at night, however. Naturally, he is something of a favorite, from Manager Fred G Duffield and Supt. W. S. Renfro right down the line. Spot is doing lis share to help the busy plant produce for victory. (Lock photo Kay-enay engraving) S E E Y O U R S T A N D A R D O I L D E A L E R ·aw. BMC, etc. Drive ,,«, 35_ 5 W,-,,« car.
