E. "Over Tokyo" Outstanding War Picture One of the great romantic stories ot the war, related as it is to the American bombing mission that electrified free peoples everywhere, has been vividly brought to the screen by Mctro-Goldwyn- Mayer in "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo," which had its premiere Thursday at the Cecil theater. Based on the best-seller by Capt. Ted Lawson and Robert Consldine, this outstanding motion picture combines the historic raid on Tokyo with the truly heartwarming romance of Ted and Ellen Lavvson. It is the story of women who Thai was the theme of a KGLO walt for th « ir «nen · return from Forum talk Thursday evening by Andrew F. Freiund, chief clerk to the superintendent of the Chicago and North Western railroad in Mason City. Mr. Frelunfl's topic was "Railroad Construction and Post-War Employment." , "The administration in Washington has promised the people 60,000,000 jobs after the war, intimating that if private industry does no£ hire that many people, the government will take up the slack," Mr. Freiund said. "As a matter of fact--with a huge super-highway and waterway program now being actively advanced--the government is going ahead with 'schemes to provide millions of jobs at the taxpayers' expense without even waiting to see whether adequate employment can be provided by private industry or not. "So much publicity has been given to multitudinous schemes for public works--national, state and local--and so little publicity to private industry's plans for job- creating capital expenditures, that popular opinion is coming to accept these public works uncritically--as, somehow, unavoidable --if returning soldiers and discharged war-workers are not to be jobless," h'e continued. "This impression Is wholly erroneous, -and most harmful both to the country's hopes of maximum nroductive employment and to the future of private enterprise. The fact Is that the government CANNOT provide a NET increase in employment from the proceeds of taxation. Tbe jobs K offers in public works merely extract th»t much more in taxes from individuals and businesses -- money which the taxpayers themselves could otherwise expend' to increase employment. "Jobs come into being as a re- i suit of economic activity, which | increases when INCENTIVES to investment become stronger. In the case of private business, the incentive to increased activity is rising hope for profit. With tuiblic works, the incentive which brings about investments is the taxnay- er's fear of imprisonment. Tf the government would cease its inequitable comnetition with and its persecution of private business and thus remove the fear of losses from the heart.-, o£ management and investors, there wnultl he no need for it to coerce investment by taxpayers in public works," th» sneaker said.

We see the history of the mission re-enacted, and we take to our hearts the personal relationships of everyone involved. M-G-M has cast "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo" to perfection, and everyone turns in a most praiseworthy performance. There is Van Johnson as Lawson; Robert Walker as Cpl. (now Staff Sergeant) Thatcher; Spencer Tracy as Lieutenant Colonel {now Lt. Gen.) James H. Doolittle, who, as no one ever will forget, led the famous mission. And there is a brilliant young newcomer, Phillis Thaxter, who plays Ellen Lawson in a fashion deserving .of all the laudatory adjectives reviewers have at their command. Here is a new, fresh personality for whom stardom seem si assured. There are many others- who should be singled out for laurels: newcomers like Tim Murdock, Scott McKay, Don DeFore, Horace McNally, Gordon McDonald, and veteran actors like Louis Heydt and Leon Ames. Jean FINDS JOBS FOR VETERANS HERE Frank Fiala, Jr., Is in Charge of Office Frank Fiala, Jr., an honorably- discharged local veteran ot World War II, has been placed in charge of veteran affairs ai the Mason City U. S. employment service office, Clay \V. Cowan, manager of the office, announced Friday. Finding new employment for returning veterans and offering necessary council and assistance is being given A-l priority, along with the placement of additional personnel in critical war industry, by the USES here, Cowan said. The office stands ready at any time to aid veterans who wish jobs or information regarding their rights under the so-called "GI bill," including re-adjustment allowances. This allowance, the local manpower commissioner explained, may be applied for by any veteran .holding other than a dishonorable discharge from a branch of the armed forces, and entitles him to a weekly sum until he is able to find employment. Applications far the allowances are received and processed by the USES, and it will be Fiala's duty to handle such applications in addition to referring veterans to jobs and giving them such other service as they require. During December, 53 veterans, the majority of whom fought in World War II, found jobs through the local office. A total of 384 veteran placements was made during 1944, Cowan's statistics show. Each month of last year showed an increase in the number of veteran placements, he said. This, he Dalton Trumbo's screen play is quite perfect, and the direction by Mervyn LeRoy superlative, as is, indeed the entire production supervised by Sam Zimbalist. Majuro Atoll Changes Into Modern City Majuro Atoll, Marshall Islands, (U.R)--U. S. forces have transformed this once-placid, tropical atoll into a replica of a well-defended American city. Marines and soldiers have constructed military defenses, road and water systems, communications, electric lights, stores, and gasoline stations. Giant bulldozers are bowling over trees with their 12-foot bladts 1 to carve an airfield from this coconut-tree studded land. Trucks, .jeeps and 'other rolling stock are operating on the newly- constructed highway system. The traffic problem caused authorities to decree one-way streets and issue licenses for truck drivers. Three daily newspapers published by the marines,- seabces and navy "hit the street"' every morning at chow time. A library issues books for the fighters to read in-their rare bourse of leisure. A general store operated by the navy is doing a land-office business. Gasoline stations dot severa islands. Portable condensers, which distill thousands of gallons of salt water and fresh water, supply mess halls and provide water for drinking and washing. Portable showers are now being erected. Reorganization f Jap Naval Forces The Japanese Domci news agency broadcast a report Friday hat the Japanese navy has been 'quietly reorganizipg its forces" and is "lying in wait for another opportunity to annihilate the aackbone. of the enemy task fr rces." The assertion was attributed to :he Tokyo newspaper Yomiuri Hochi. REPORT ACKLEY SOLDIER KILLED Ackley -- Mr; and Mrs. Henry Brower had word from the war department stating their son, Ffc. Calvin Brower, 23, was killed Jan. 8 in Belgium. He was with the hospital division. He had his training at Oregon and Vancouver, Wash,, and went overseas in February, 1944. hundreds of thousands of Persons. "ffobndy with common sense can believe fhat trnins are going to vanish like dinosours." Mr. Freiund declared. "I believe they ·ire simnly goine to go on evolv- 'n.g as they always have, steadily becoming more efficient mechanisms . . . xvith a prosperous peacetime America with a strona economic structure, thnre will be enough traffic for all forms or transportation. But the railroads want a ch?nce to conroete " ' " Yanks Have Learned How to Hate Nazis By HAL BOYLE With the American First Army In Belgium, Jan. 16. (Delayed)-(IF)--The American soldier on the western front at last has learned to hate the Germans--actively, vigorously and personally. · One who remembers the Tunisian, Sicilian and early Italian campaigns cannot fail to he impressed with the · difference between the Yanks' attitude toward the enemy then and now. In previous campaigns captured nazi officers to say half-chummily: "Well, after all, we're sportsmen--Germans and Americans. You aren't barbarians like the Russians. We can fight each other like gentlemen." It seemed kind of funny thfin. The Yanks were new to battle and over-eager to be sportsmanlike. Even frontline troops were quick to offer their cigarettes and scarce chocolate to German prisoners. They wanted so hard to say by small gifts that they didn't believe in war and all they wanted was to get the whole dirty business over with and get back to their beer, malted milks and girl friends in the U. S. A. But the battle of the Belgian bulge changed all that. The doughboys have been getting progressively more antagonistic since they first crashed the Siegfried line .last September, for they feel they are fighting an enemy who is wilfully prolonging a war without any real hope of victory- Recent well substantiated reports, of German atrocities against American 'prisoners taken daring believes, is indicative of the trend which the employment office's activities will follow during months to come, as more and more men are discharged and return home to find employment. For this reason, the USES ranks veteran placement and service side by side in degree of importance with its all-out campaign to staff the nation's war plants with badly-needed workers, Cowan said. The office is notified ot the return of all veterans to the Mason City area and it will be Fiala's job to contact them, offering assistance and information. During 1944, the local office made 5,900 replacements, the majority in essential positions contributing directly to the war effort. Industry and food processing plants received the most referrals. Even with the current shortage of available workers,^ this figure exceeds the preceding years' record, Cowan said. He attributed this to the fact that many workers in less essential jobs offered their services to war plants and that a greater number of women are being employed. Stettinius to Attend Big Three Meeting Washington, (U.R)--Secretary of State Edward R. Stettinius, Jr., announced Friday that he will accompany President Roosevelt to the forthcoming meeting of the big 3. Goodell--Mrs. E. Kurtz invited the U. B. church choir to the L. W. Wesenberg home, Wednesday evening for weekly rehearsal, and served lunch. r or m" for«is are and will be s»v«i''"»d by t*» 'overnment All that can hold back is, a eenera! oolitlcal atmosphere calculated to make private investors hesitant, especially regarding investments in transportation."

Typical of the American attitude today is the message one group of the 82nd airborne division gnve to the first 2 German prisoners they captured with orders to take it back to enemy headquarters. "Tell them the American 82nd airborne division is here and ready for a good light," the message said. These are the reckless battlers with ammunition-laden uniforms whom the nazis have nicknamed "The boys with the big pockets." Similar is the view of one American tank commander whose men spearheaded the drive to Houffalizc. "The German troops still left in the salient have been ordered to fight to the end," he said grimly. "Well, we want to help them along." Some soldiers still think it is impolite for spokesmen back home to emphasize unconditional surrender trems in too strict a manner, believing that this is the best propaganda nazi leaders can use to stiffen German resistance. But the boys along the front are pretty well agreed that the time for coddling nazi prisoners is well past The days of handing out cig- arets are over. "If they want it the rough way, we will play rough," is the way most of the doughboys put it. "and nc body can play rougher than we can." The American soldier after more than three years,of war, has learned to hate. In World war II, the German high command has reproduced captured American army maps 11 for reissue to German forces.
