J.) to cushion post war unemployment. He introduced a bill similar to one that died in the 77tl- congress, which envisaged an outlay ot S10,- 000,000,000 with these objectives: * # * 1--Defense of the nation in lime of threatened invasion. 2--Absorption of Hie unemployed on this public project when the war ends. 3--Expansion of the liigjuray systems and ah-porl facilities to handle anticipated increases in flow in tlie peacetime years. * V- # Wene said the work should be planned and organized now so that it would be ready for operation at (lie close of the war. The program would eliminate . 'all need of dole, relief or char- i ity to any able-bodied citizen," the ] author declared, and provide the I nation with the "greatest transportation system ever built." , A federal commission would be established to build Die network which would include these main routes: Portland, Maine, west to Boston, New York, Trenton, N. J., Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, through West Virginia. Ohio, Indian?., II' linois, Missouri, Colorado, Utah and Nevada with the terminus at San Francisco. Between Woodbridge and New Brunswick, N. J., southwest to Atlantic City and Cape May, N. J. Boston to Albany, Utica, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo, Erie, Cleveland and Toledo, Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis and St. Paul, through North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Seattle and Portland] and soutli to San Francisco. ' | * * * Chicago southwest to St. Louis, Springfield, 'Mo., Oklahoma City and El Paso, Tex. Chicago northwest to near Des Moiiies, Iowa, Omaha and Denver. Minneapolis south to near S(. L o u i s , Memphis, Tenu., a n d New Orleans. North Dakota south through Soutli Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma to Galveston, Tex. Branch routes would be extended from the main lines to every state capitol and main industrial centers. A system of toll charges would THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, 1943 be imposed to help amortize the bond issues. No advertising signs would be permitted along the so-called ·'superhighways." G r a d e s and curves would Ire reduced to a minimum. Emergency airplane landing fields would be built along the system at frequent intervals where the terrain permitted, Japan Adheres to Axis on Music Front LONDON, U.R--Japan lias adhered to the axis on the musical front, a German broadcast dispatch from Tokio said Thursday.

Assurance of Millc for Infants Given by Agriculture Department WASHINGTON, (/!') -- Agriculture department food distribution o f f i c i a l s said Thursday there was no reason for anxious parents to become concerned over supplies of evaporated milk for their babies. Infants, they said, will be assured of ample supplies oven if acute shortages should develop. | These officials, who asked t h a t I they not be quoted, said it is quite likely that consumer rationing of evaporated milk and butter will be ordered by Secretary Wickard as soon as the office of price administration gets rationing of meats and canned and dried fruits and vegetables started. The rationing would be designed to assure infants and other essential users of ample supplies and to conserve, during the season of heavy production, supplies which should be held over for next winter. * S5UOSXUK LINES SOLD BHITT-- The Frank L.

Idaho Roadbuiiders Have Tough Jobs, too ·WALLACE, Idaho. W)--You think builders of the Alaska highway had n tough job? Well. Idaho isn't nny snnp. A v o n ci-building conlr;iclors bulldozer slid from the grade into ;i creek and was mired. A second j bulldozer .started to the scene to extricate the first. It slipped into the channel and was mired. Then the power shovel was called over to lift the first bulldozer out. It snapped its stick. The contractor isn't thinking of progress on the road work, right at the moment. In co-operation with the "food for freedom" campaign, the Fish and Wildlife Service of the U. S. department of the interior* is exerting every effort to step up domestic rabbit production to furnish more meat. Service experts say the home vise o£ this nutritious meat will not only rekasc other meat for the armed forces, and for exportation to our allies, but will add variety to the family diet throughout the year.
