IOWAN ATTACKS INCOME SOURCE Criticizes Extravagance of Public in Night Clubs By E. P. CHASE (Iowa Daily Frets Writer) Washington, D, C., (IDPA)-- ftep~. Paul K. Cunningham of Des Moines is in receipt of a letter from an attorney friend in the Iowa capital which is in some ways remarkable. In the letter the Des Moines man complains bitterly 'about the way the public flocks to night clubs, throws its money .away lor liquor and pays the exorbitant prices charged for food by those places. He says that it would be in the national interest if night clubs were closed lor the duration. The payoff is, according to. Cunningham, that the letter comes from a man who gets a percentage of his income as an attorney for proprietors of night . clubs he says are a most evil in- f l u e n c e . - . . . . ' . . . ;.

Weils : : : : ; :.';-;. " W HEN millions of young people emerge from the frightful realism of war, they wilt no longer, hove much taste 'or patience for shallow formalism. It is already evident that the post-war era will be marked by a vigorous loyalty to .those things that are real, productive ond creative and by the sharp rejection of old meaningless traditions and sacred shibboleths of the past. While we must face the hard fact that throngs of veterans will continue to ignore religion .altogether--we must also.bear in mind that only a vital religion wil.l appeal at all to the battle'hardened mind. The church and its message must become vital, realistic, sacrificial--as one veteran has written us, "It has" got to b e that--or nothing." - . ' . ' .

Krueger Lets Japs Do Worrying Americas Sixth Army Head^*^* T9 i. lja * on ' W-W--«· Gen. waiter Krueger is not trying to guess whether the Japanese are planning a strong defense of Luzon. He is letting the'enemy guess what he is going to do. ^·he Jap does some funny things," Krueger said. "I might be able to figure out what other people would do under similar circumstances but I don't know how or why the Jap. does anything and I doat worry about it. I am going to let him worry about what we are going to do." The 6th army commander reported Thursday that he-found things at the front "quite satisfactory." Those 2 words -have greii significance coming from Krueger, an ultra-conservative' in making claims. . / : ' ^ " Regarding Japanese pressure on Jie so-calied American left flank Krueger explained that he considered the lines as being "all front with no flanks," indicating that ais infantrymen, are prepared to meet enemy pressure at any point while proceeding toward their own objective. He,recounted an incident to which' an officer thought he was alarmed by a report-of a heavy concentration of Japanese in one area. "I told him I was pretty alarmed --alarmed that the tanks,might get away before we could find and destroy them," the commander said. . Reviewing the Luzon campaign Krueger said early successes were due to the surprise factor, and, to some extent, to luck. He pointed out that the' Japanese had expected the Yanks to land farther north- on the eastern side 'of Lingayen gulf and had been set to defend that area instead of the San Fabian area of Lingayen, INFANT BUUKD Garner--Funeral services were leld at the Bohn funeral home Wednesday afternoon for-the infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Anderson of . near Ventura.
