4 THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE RITES HELD FOR R. L JAMES AT 1STM.E, CHURCH Teachers Attend in Body; School Board Honorary'Pallbearers Funeral services for R. L. James, who died Saturday at a local hospital following a lingering illness, were held Wednesday afternoon at the First Methodist church,'with Doctor Marvin B. Kober, pastor of the church, officiating. Mrs. Bertha Fatchen played ob- sequial music on the organ preceding the services. "When we contemplate such a life, we can't frame words to do it justice," said Mr. Kober. "We know any life only in part, some of its outer appearance, only as we touch it casually, for ho man ever reaches the depths of a spirit." . . . : . · . - ' , In speaking of Air. James, Mr. Kober said that "some of us knew him for years, some only a short time. Some knew him for his loyalty to a task most commendable; others knew him in his family life; others In yet other moo'ds. And seme knew him as a- man of character who bore suffering and pain so well. . · · · · "Pain that God is allowed to guide ends in a saving repentance. There are so many ways of meeting suffering. Pain is an illusion to some. Some anticipate it with a pessimistic note; Bothers pity themselves; some grin and bear-it; and some resign themselves to pain and,'suffering. "The genuine Christian'attitude looks on pain and suffering as an opportunity. Something like this must have moved' Brother James, ' for· through it all was an attitude that made · opportunity out of calamity. '. "It is 'good our lives have touched his and his burs, for in . dealings with him, life has been more colorful and jovial because he lived. Such a quality, of life - does not end in dying, for Jesus said, 'Because I lived yon too have lived/ " . · ' . . Mrs. Milton.

It hopes, «=»d Chairman May (D.-Ky.), to rftFc'n agreement on the limited national service proposal by nigfaHall end to clear the way for actual house consideration by the middle of next week. Still to be threshed out are such vexing matters as what age groups should be affected by the legislation, what penalties should be imposed .on violators, what union rights should be protected or waived in the proposed shifting of draft-deferred men from non-essential to essential jobs. But there was almost unanimous WHITES FKOM HOSPlTAlr-i Pfc. Ronald L. Mikkelsen, who was wounded in action in the European theater, presumably in Luxembourg:, on Dec. S, wrote · from a hospital in England that he had received a lee injury. First word of his injury came from the war department on Dec! 28. Pfc. Mikkelsen has been In France, Luxembourg, Belgium and Germany. He had sent quite a number of coins and stamps from those countries to his wife, who lives at 827 Polk place S. W. distant where a heavy transport plane, more comfortable for the stricken girl, could land to take hem aboard for the flight to the Canal Zone. Soon after the trio took off rom Pinogana, however, they nd themselves in a violent ,torm, with visibility virtually zero and St. Elmo's fire forming arti- 'idal lightning around the propel- er, on. the' rain-drenched windshield, and along the leading edges of the wings. The violence of the winds increased, wrenched off the covering of the rear -cockpit and mrled the collapsing plane into the sea. U. Wiley and Martinez, sup- JOrting the nearly unconscious girl jetween them, finally made shore ind did what they could to ease i«r sufferings. In .the moraine they tracked. SOS in'the muddy shore and finally were spotted by agreement as the committee concluded more than a week of public hearings Wednesday that some form of action is imperative immediately. That the committee intended to lose no time acting was indicated by its sudden decision to close the hearings a. day ahead of schedule a f t e r the president, General George C. Marshall and Admiral Ernest J. King reduced to writing their requests for action. "The urgent need" for legislation "has not lessened but has increased since the sending of my message" to congress on Jan. 6, the president wrote May. A trend toward, increased placement of manpower in the last 2 weeks unquestionably was due, the president said, to the belief that c o n g r e s s , "contemplated prompt action." And, he added, this .trend "will be reversed by reports now current in the press that congression- al'action is likely^to be delayed." While not a complete national service, act, the president wrote, Mays bill which the committee has under study "will go far to secure the effective employment in the war effort" of all draft registrants between 18 and 45. The president thus endorsed the May bill, leaving to congress the matter of detail but stressing the heed for speed. "As the united nations enter upon a truly total offense against their enemies, it is vital that total offense should not slacken'because of any less than' total mobilization of onr manpower on the home front," he added. To, add force to his plea, the president sent May a joint letter Erom Marshall and King stressing the need for a minimum of 700,000 additional industrial workers "if our urgent needs are to be met." . Marshall and King underscored the "acute need" for young and vigorous army-navy replacements, a need which. Undersecretary of War Robert P. Patterson had told the committee would approximate 900,000 men by July 1. "Personnel losses sustained'by the army in the past 2 months have taxed the' replacement system to : the breaking "point," the heads of the fighting forces wrote. "The army must provide 600,000 replacements for overseas theaters, before June 30," while the navy needs 300,000 more personnel. In addition to making good the equipment losses "due to the German offensive and winter fighting," they said, equipment must be furnished for 8 French divisions and for the accumulation of reserves, Naval damage in Pacific operations must be repaired, they declared, -and the increased repair load "is already being reflected in a slowdown in the construction of new ships which have been counted on for future operations . . . . Items of particular moment are replacements for casualties and war fatigued men particularly pilots and crews for aircraft." COOL ROASTiD COFFEE Mercy Flight Succeeds in Jungle Land AJbrook Field, Canal Zone, (U,R) --First Lt. Edward R. Wiley, 26 of Santa Barbara, Cal., was decorated with the soldier's medal by Gt Gen, George H. Brett for his part in a hair-raising mercy I flight from Pinogana, deep in the I Darien jungles of Panama, to the Canal Zone to bring a 15 year old Panamanian girl to Santo Tomas Hospital, Panama City, for an emergency appendectomy. The journey,, which began as a routine mercy trip, turned out to be a thrilling and exhausting experience including the tearing- apart in mid-air of Lt. Wiley's plane, with the desperately ill girl and her half-brother aboard as passengers, by a furious tropical electrical storm; a crash at sea, a perilous swim through shark-and ray-infested waters to shore; a pain-wracked night in a jungle swamp; and final arduous rescue by a 15th Naval District PT boat U~ Wiley flew his light observation plane to the small Pinogana airfield and picked up the girl, Genoveva Bustamante, and her half - brother, Dcosilo Martinez corregidor (sheriff) of nearby El ·-~-~-~ Real, with the intention of hop^^^^^^ Ping them to a larger field not far aerial searchers who dropped a rubber raft. Wiley and Martinez placed the girl in the raft and .dragged her 6 miles through sticky mud and shallow water to the nearest point to which a PT boat, directed by wireless, could approach. From there they were speedily brought to Fort Amador, -Canal Zone, where ambulances rnet them for the final lap of the journey. The Bustamante girl survived the emergency operation and recovered while her 2 rescuers, after treatment · for minor cuts and bruises plus recovery from their exhaustion,'were as good as new. Wesley--Mrs. John lackteig returned home Wednesday from Greeley, Kans., having been there 2 weeks during the illness, death and burial of her step-mother, Mrs. Joseph Ohmes. Finish Count of November Vote Returns Washington, (ff)--Final official tabulation of the November election returns Thursday showed: 48,025,684 voted for president. 45,103,023 voted for representative. 34,973,613 voted for senator. The figures were compiled from official reports of secretaries of state to the clerk of the house. The total popular vote for president added slightly to the previous unofficial aggregate of 47,971,156. The difference is made up entirely of additions to minor party totals. President Roosevelt had a plur- ality of 3,596,227 over Gov. Thomas E. Dewey; His official vote was 25,602,505. Dewey polled 22,006,278. The rest of the popular vote was divided this way: Norman Thomas, socialist, 80,518; Claude 'A. Watson,, prohibition, 74,753; Edward A. Teichert, socialist-labor, 45,336; others, 216,289. Making up most o£ the "other" vote was Texas' 135,689, ol which 135,439 were polled by the anti- Roosevelt "Texas regulars" and 250 for Gerald L. K. Smith's American first ticket. Smith also polled 1,530 votes in his home state of Michigan. One of the biggest surprises to political historians was the aggregate vote of 45,103,023 shown for all candidates for the house. Official compilations of these figures were begun only after the 1942 election and a comparison for the previous presidential.year is not available. But it compared with only 28,070,183 cast for representative in the "off-year" of 1942 and is believed to be a big jump over the aggregate for 1940. The democrats polled only a little more than 1,000,000 votes for representative than the republicans. The totals were: Democrats 22,812,611; republicans 21,303,278. Minor parties fared poorly. Despite the wartime interruption of normal voting, the total vote for presidential electors was only 1,789,628 shy of the record vote of 49,815,312 in 1940. Fertile--Floyd Calhoun drove to Mason City Monday and brought his wife and infant daughter, Patricia Rose, from Mercy hospital to the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Orin Calhoun. 2 Egyptians to Die ! for Killing Diplomat Cairo, (/P)--Eliahou Bet Sourl and Eliahou Hakim were sentenced to death Thursday for the assassination of Lard Moyne, Britr ish resident minister in the middle east.- During the trial here the defendants, both young Jews from Palestine, admitted they had jointly planned the killing of the diplomat near his residnece here last November. Lord Moyne's chauffeur also was killed. The defendants had said they killed Moyne for political reasons because he symbolized the British government policy in Palestine, a policy, they believed to be un-' just. .
