Four Conscientious tors Are Guinea ;s in Diet Tests Objectc Pig Hitler Wages Ruthless Drive to Mobilize All of Resources CHAMPAIGN, 111., #)--Four conscientious objectors b e g a n - a program o£ -vigorous work and exercise in the simulated temperature and humidity of the tropics and desert to enable - University of Ill'nois scientists to studv the food needs of troops in the Solomon islands and in Africa. · Prof. H. H. -Mitchell, chief of the division of. animal nutrition, said the quartet would be fed controlled diets and all the food they consumed would be recorded. He declared the men will undergo "quite an ordeal" during the experiment which will continue until Aug. 1 under a contract between, the University of Illinois and the federal office of scientific research and development. The quartet volunteered for the experiment and came here from the civilian service camp «o. 13, Denison, - Iowa, maintained by the Mennonite church. MASON CiT* Willing to Pauperize AH of Continent to Heip War Machine By GLENN BABB War News Interpreter Hitler is carrying on a gigantic, ruthless campaign to mobilize the economic resources of the\ entire continent, including labor, as part of his preparations f o r holding his fortress o f E u r o p e against the anticipated allied Wows of 1943. D a i l y i t b e - c o m e s m o r e evident that the b o a s t of the globular Goering -- that t h e Gel-mans w i l l eat no matter BABB ; who goes hungry--applies not to food alone but to all wealth and the means of producing wealth. * * * Hitler will stop at nothing in this campaign; he will pauperize all Europe if need be to get what he requires for his war machine. V V * The fuehrer's meeting: with his stooge in charge of Rumania, Marsha! Antonescu, announced by Berlin Wednesday, was part of this campaign. ¥ * # One reason Antonescu was summoned to headquarters no doubt was to receive orders to put down the rising clamor against the spilling of so much Rumanian blood in Russia and to make sure that the flow of Rumanian manpower into the eastern front remains steady. For that purpose Keitel and Zcitzler sat at the conference table. But probably the most important men there were Doctors Funk and Clodius, whose ALKA-SELTZER Large Size 49c Prices Effective Thursday - Friday - Saturday function is to supply the wealth that keeps the armies going. Just what Hitler requires of Rumania was not disclosed; perhaps more oil or more grain. That retreat in the Caucasus, abandoning the bright hopes of 1942 of gathering in the oil of Grozny and Baku, poses a grave new fuel problem. The anticipated yield from the grain fields of the Ukraine has become a bigger question mark. * V if. The Hermans may not even be in possession of those fields when rext harvest time conies. Hitler may have demanded that Rumania, already sorely bled for the Russian war, contribute workers for the reich's labor- hungry industries. Whatever he asked it was connected with his colossal economic mobilization » * ¥ Hitler's search for labor is made ·more desperate by the claims of his army on German manpower. A Stockholm dispatch reports Thursday that a military commission is -touring the reich to comb out perhaps one or two million men hitherto rated unfit for military service.

British and A m e r i c a n production facilities meanwhile will be turning out more of the heavy planes and gigantic bombs needed for the operation. The raid on the Ruhr was what is called a "saturation" attack. The great weight of bombs was dropped in the space of 12 minutes. In the great 1,000-plane raid on Cologne last year, 2,000 tons were dropped in 90 minutes. The weight and brevity of the attack disrupts communications and the enemy's defense system. , * * * The l.OQO-plane raids, a costly and difficult operation, apparently have been abandoned in favor of more frequent raids with fewer planes, but carrying extremely heavy bombs. * * ¥ Tlie bomb now used is the so- called "block-buster," of 8,000 pounds, or a little more than 3V- British tons. Its destructive effect is tremendous. The explosive force is lateral and it literally devastates an entire block or industrial plant. No man-made structure can stand against it. According to the London Daily Mail, British research workers are engaged in perfecting an even heavier bomb which can be carried by the big British Laneasters Stirling!; and Halifaxes. The Stirl- ings can carry 17,000 pounds of explosives. This concentration of load enables the use of fewer planes to get the same result, and the operation is easier to carry out. The .heaviest bomb dropped in 1940 was 500 pounds; in 1941, 2,000 pounds, and now it is 8,000 pounds and going up. * * * The way the air war on Germany has been stepped UD is illustrated in statistics issued by the British. The weight of bombs dropped on Germany and German-occupied Europe during June and July of 1941 was 8,500 tons, while for those months in 1942, 13,000 tons were dropped. * * ¥ The maximum bomb load of British bombers in 1940 was two tons. In 1341 it was more than six tons and in 1942 more than eight tons. The capabilities of the royal air force are illustrated by the fact that in four raids on the Ruhr last April, 1,000 tons of bombs were dropped, which the British figured to be the equivalent of 200 pounds every minute of the week ir which the raids were carried out. The effect of these bombings on German production is bound to increase in ratio as they continue. Factories are blown up, railroads, locomotives, and bridges destroyed and German production conse quently slowed. In addition, th morale of thu workers is affected and output slackens. 4 Rifle Through Army Official Papers, Then Say "It Isn't Here" NORTH 'KINGSTOWN. R. I (/Pj--Four men who held up an unarmed army dispatch rider at gunpoint and rifled through official army papers, only to return them with the remark that "It isn't hero," were at large Thursday despite a state police dragnet. There was no indication of what the men were seeking in their mysterious foray, nor any clew to their identity. The men forced the soldier Private Raymond L. Mosher, of Springfield, Mass., to drive his small army tntck for more than a mile, a gun at his head, to a secluded lane where they carefully examined the documents. Then they sped away in a small sedan. State police, upon being notified of the hold-up, posted guards on all highways leading out of the area and referred the case to the federal bureau of investigation office in Providence.
