Army Pilots Parachute to Safety When Their Plane Runs Out of Gas OXFORD, Nebr., W) -- Two army pilots on a routine night parachuted to safety near here early Thursday after their army training plane ran out oj gas. The plane was demolished. Fire Chief W. K. Parks, one of the first to reach the crash, said the flyers gave their names as 2nd LI. Victor B. Foster, pilot, and E. A. Harper, co-pilot. Harpers' rank was not known here. Parks said, the plane crashed within "50 feet of the Wallace Warner farm a mile north and a mile east of Oxford. Harper baled out at about 1,400 feet, but Foster stayed with the plane until it reached 300 feet. He suffered an ankle Â· injury. Parks took the two men to Lexington, where they obtained train transportation to Nor'ih Platte. Parks said the pilot told him they "got off the beam" and couldn't get back on again before the gas supply was exhausted. The crash occurred shortly after midnight. Colombo, the capital of Ceylon, was named for Christopher Columbus. SALLY'S SALLIES Type Ratings of Holsteins Are Complete AMES--Type classifications of [ 19 fowa dairy herds have just j been completed by the liolslcin- Friesian association of America. Ninety-one per cent of the animals classified receis'ed a "good" or above rating. According to Arthur H. Porter, extension dairyman at Iowa State college, classifications were made on the closeness to which animals a p p r o a c h e d the "True-Type Model." Owners of Iowa herds that participated in the classification arc: Iowa School for the Deaf, Council Bluffs; C. B. Jensen, Sutherland; Fred Spies and A. A. Dryer, Graettinger; Ronald Chapman, Jttutlii'en; Arthur Gerlach, St Ansgar; D. H. Ellis, Greene; Elmer Chester, Nathan Chester and lialph Cheater, Plainfiold; E. M.

Reeve, TiC- fen; Anton Hcithuscn, Williarns- biu-g, and Oils Taylor, Delia. In Iowa two cows were rated excellent; 34 very good; 103 yood plus; 145, good; 24 fair, and 4 poor. As a result of the classification, the cows that were rated poor will lose their registration certificates, and bull calves from cows rated fair will not be eligible for registration. The ratings were made by .T. E. Elder of Alton, K. H., one of seven classifying judges in the nation. The classifications thus far completed have shown a correlation in high ratines and high production ot buttcrfat. Of the 16,500 females classified, to date, the 511 rating excellent have liad the highest average buttert'at production, an average of C01.4 pounds a cow.

Heavy Blows Fall on Jap Supply Lines By THE ASSOCIATED PUESS New American blows against Japan's far-flung supply lines, ranging from the Solomons to the Aleutian islands, were reported by the navy Thursday even as President Roosevelt told congress that U. S. warplanes would strike at Japan's home islands "and bomb them constantly from the. air." * * * The navy said American fly- ins fortresses, escorted by liclit- niiiBT and tomahawk fighters, attacked a .lanaiiese transport off the Stiorttaiid islands, in the Solomons, ;ind scored a, "possible hit." Â¥ * v Other U. S. aircraft bombed the Japanese airfield at Kahili, near Buin, on TiouMuinvillc island, and the air field ut Munda. New Georgia island. Â· I n the Aleutians, the navy nn- nouuccd that American bombers sank one Japanese cargo ship 110 miles northeast of the enemy base at Kiskn and scored a direct bomb hit and two-.near-hits on another enemy vessel 185 miles southwest of Kiska.
