The senate voted 47 to 31 lo approve the filial version of the measure, worked out by a joint conference committee of house and senate members after weeks of wrangling;. The measure now goes to the house, where Chairman Worley D., Tex.) of the elections committee predicted its prompt acceptance. Senator Green (D.. R. I.) and Lucas (D., 111.), authors of the original federal ballot bill, disowned -It after the house ripped away must of their handiwork and replaced it with machinery giving the stales first say about the fonn of the ballols and full right to determine the qualifications of absent voters. Democratic Leader Barkley of Kentucky took the floor against the compromise, declaring it was so "bound up with adhesive tape" in a legal sense lhat it would complicate voting by service men and women in the November cleclion. In a speech regarded in some quarters as presaging; a veto of the measure by President Roosevelt, Barkley said congress had failed to set up as simple a pro- ceure for voting; as was possible. In addition to members of the armed forces, the following would - be authorized to use the federal ballots, .under the same, restric- ' "'""tlohs: Members of the'rriercriant marine,'and-persons serving with the American Red Cross, the society of Friends, the Women's auxiliary service pilots and the United · Service Organizations, outside of the United States and attached to the armed forces.

Dr. Crabb and Bailey Victors in School Board Election R. L.. BAILEY New Board Member Heavy Attack on LeMans Is Made by RAF L o n d o n , (S)--RAF halifaxes droning out under a waning '·bombers' moon" staged a heavy attack Monday night on the strategic railway center of Le Mans in western France, while mosqui- tos struck at Frankfurt and other places in western Germany. It was the second bombardment of Le Mans--115 miles southwest of Paris and on the shortest rail roule between the north and west c o a s t s--in 6 n i g h t s. Two bombers were lost d u r i n g the night. The precision blow by moonlight was another explosive punch in the new allied day-and-night campaign against nazi transportation facilities all over France, hitting at the vital arteries for quick movement of troops and supplies to the Germans' '·in- vasion wall." The Germans, Ihcir "blitz" revival at least temporarily subsiding to sneak r a i d s , for the second successive night sent a small force over the south coast of England, dropping a few bombs harmlessly and setting off sirens in one London area. The air ministry said Lc Mans was hit in a "heavy attack." indicating the increasing weight of these specialized night blows during a period when Ihc moonlighl has prevented major saturation attacks deep into Germany in coordination with American daylight assaults. The night flyers also laid mines in enemy waters. One plane was lost on intruder patrols over the continent. Dr. George M. Crabb, who is now serving as president of the Mason City school board, was re-elected to that board for another 3 year term in Monday's election. R. L. Bailey, local insurance man, v.'as elected to the board for a similar term, taking the place that will be vacated by F. W. Osmundson, who was not a candidate. Dr. Crabb and Mr. Bailey won over 2 labor candidates, Clarence Ramsey, president of the local union of Ihe Packinghouse Workers Organizalion Committee, and Henry Rheingans, president of the Mason City Labor Assembly. The vote for these 2 contested places on the board was: Dr. Crabb 1,278 Bailey 1,273 Ramsey 338 Kheinxans 353 A proposition authorizing the school district to levy a tax not to exceed ',- mill to finance a summer playground program in Mason City carried by 1,235 to 332 Allan F.

Mr. Bailey, who Is president of the Mason City P. T. A., will take office when Ihe board meets next Monday for organization purposes. At that time he will, replace Mr. Osmundson. who has served since his appointment in November, 1942. lo take the place of Frank Pcarce, who resigned to enter the armed service. Mr.' Osmundson was re-elected last March for an unexpired term of one year. Serving with Dr. Crab!) and -Mr. Bailey as the board convenes will be Jay Decker, Garfield Breesc. Howard Knesel. Howard O'Lcary and Raymond Zack. The new board member has been in business in Mason City 14 years, coming here from Osage to head the Mason- City branch office of the Bankers Life company.

Fleet Expanding at Rate oi Nearly 12 Seagoing Ships a Day Washington. (U.R)--Secretary o f ! c Navy Frank Knox said Tues- ly that the navy would need al- lost 500.000 more men to meet ic navy's goal of 3,006,000 men y the end of the calendar year. The men will be needed to man he fleet which will expand this ear at an averagre of nearly 12 eagoing: ships a day. Knox told a press conference hat the navy strength would be von higher next year but that vhen the 3,000,000 mark is past he navy will start leveling off on nductlons. barring unforeseen de- elopmenls. Vice Admiral Randall Jacobs, chief of naval personnel, who was present al the news conference, :sliinatcd that the strength of all the naval service--navy, marine corps and coast guard--will be about 3,700,000 by the end of 1944. Knox said that the navy, would not reach its maximum strength until sometime in 1945. He said that the number of ships in commission increased from 913 on Jan. 1, 1942, to 4,167 on Jan. 1, this year. To emphasize the shnrp expansion that has taken place and the need for personnel, Knox said t h a t an average of 3.4 ships were commissioned each day in 1942; in 1943 the daily average was ships, and in this year the estimate is an average of 11.7 ships. This year's number includes only seagoing craft and is exclusive of such craft as oil barges, small miscellaneous amphibious craft and district craft which also ure manned with navy personnel. Knox estimated the present strength of the navy at 2,510,000 personnel. "A" Card Gas Allowance Will Be Cut to 2 Gallons Each Week in Midwest Icy Highways Keep Draft Quota Home Ice covered the highways of North lowu Tuesday mornin making them exceedingly slippery for travel, but main transporta- "tion routes were continuing business as usual. The Jefferson Transportation company reported buses were sent north and south Tuesday morning and east and west bound buses were expected in here at noon. All connections with other buses were stopped, however, on account the ice. Some trouble was encountcrec early Tuesday morning by the Mason City Motor Coach compan\ in the Central Heights district, bu aside from this local buses were running on their regular route close to schedule. The men from Cerro Gordo draft board No. 2 who were sched tiled to leave at 1:30 a. m. Tuesday for their prc-induction examina tions at Camp Dodge will not leavi for a couple of days, it was an nounced by Chairman Georg Ludeman Monday night when th highways became impossible travel because of the ice. A call from the induction con ter at Camp Dodge said that an other notice would be sent out t the men to report later. About 7 men had been scheduled to leav early Tuesday. Rairloads reported no difficult from the ice, the weight of the equipment breaking what collected on the rails. DR. GEOKGE M. CKABB : --Re-Elected polled: Largest vote in 20 years was In 1924, the year Fred Duffield and D. W. Grippen were elected. That year 3,837 persons went to the polls. A. E. McAulcy and M. S. Steece were the other candidates. Most school elections, however, have been quiet affairs with members often being elected without opposition. Following is the vote over the past 20 year period: sufficient for the playground system. Hence the board may levy less than a half mill or make 1 levy cover a period of 2 years. The vole was moderately heavy for a school election, a total 1,706 ballols being cast. The vole was the largest since 1339, when a total of 1,974 was officers and enlisted including WAVES. Knox noted that draft boards recently have encountered much difficulty in meeting their quotas. "It is my personal view, and that of the secretary of war and the chairman of the maritime commission, that we are bound to h;ive.:to f a c e , t h e .large, phase of the whole problem and enact some kind of national service law, :I Knox said. "That will check and halt the most serious feature of the whole manpower problem-turnover in employment." litll REDS OVERRUN BIG DNIEPER BASE--Hammering relentlessly at the German Dnieper-bend salient, the Russians-toppled the big German anchor base of Kherson at the mouth of the Dnieper following a lightning drive past Tyaginku (C).

Is Entering Period of "Critical Demands" Washington, (/P)--The b a s i c family car gasoline ration was cut to 2 gallons a week for the whole nation Tuesday when the office of price administration reduced the "A" card allowance from 3 gallons to 2 in the midwest and far west areas, effective March 22. At the same time, the "B" supplementary ration ceiling on the Pacific coast will l:c trimmed from 4GO lo 400 miles a month. No change is scheduled for any of the present rations in the 17 east coast slates and the District of Columbia, already on on "A" card allotment of 1 gallons a week. "We make these reductions reluctantly." OPA administrator Chester Bowles said of the wesl and midwest cuts, "but we arc en- tcrins a period in which critical demands will be made on our limited supplies of gasoline, and we are entering it with supplies that arc sharply limited as the result of war demands." Preliminary figures show, OPA said, that gasoline allocations for the country as a whole will be about 9 per cent less for the second quarter beginning April 1 than for t h e ' f i r s t quarter. The ration reductions are expected to save about 18,000 to 20,000 barrels of gasoline a day. As in all previous announce- mcnls concerning gasoline rationing, the term "midwest" was used to include the midsouth states, where midwest regulations apply. OPA also announced new plans to crack down on the leakate of gasoline lo the black - market, which officials described as "now the biggest racket in the United States." "In January/' Bowles said, "when we should have been saving gasoline to cushion us against the accelerated demand to come, we used practically all that was alloUecI lo us. In February and so far in March we have been using up even more than the quotas set by the petroleum' administrator for war. In the next 3 months, spring p l a n t i n g and other seasonal Heeds will raise consumption sharply, probably as much as 18 or 20 per cent, judging from last year's experience." Bowles said "The situation must be faced quickly and honestly," adding: "There is no present alternative but lo cut rations s u f f i - cently to bring consumption within c i v i l i a n quoins." The "A" ration revision means that when "A-ll" coupons become valid March 22 for all seclions of the country except the Atlantic- seaboard (now in a different series), they will have to last 3 months instead of 2. the equivalent to 2 gallons a week for unrestricted family driving. Along wilh the reduction, OPA will terminate Ihe requirement t h a t fiO miles n month of occupa- t i o n a l mileage be taken out of t h e "A'* ration before the motorist becomes eligible for a supplemental "B'' or "C 1 ' ration. In the 5 Pacific .states--California. Oregon. Washington, Nevada, and Arizona---the top a m o u n t nf d r i v i n g for which "B" rations will be issued w i l l be cut from 460 to 400 miles a month. This means. OI'A explained, [hat in those states where allo- calions are being reduced Ihc most,, gasoline lost through the ;V cut can lie restored only for war-plnnt workers, doctors and olhers \vlio need the special cli- sibilily requirements for a "C'' ration. On the oilier hand, motorists in the micldlc-of-thc-country states holding a "B" ration and meeting requirements on car pooling may apply to local rationing boards for coupons to make up gasoline lost through the cut in the "A" ration. They w i l l be issued '"B'' coupons allowing up to 475 miles a month of driving, ;ui adjustment in the "B" ceiling from 460 miles a m o n t h . This was necessary. OPA snid. siince "E5" nations are issued each 3 months in coupons worth 5 gallons each and representing 75 mile? of driving. In holding cast cinist rations at pre.sent levels. Bowles said: ''The 'A' rations in the east have a l r e a d y been reduced to what seems a bare minimum for family needs, and 'B' and 'C' ralions have been closely tailored by lo- ! lured since Ihe inception of the red army winlcr offensives.
