WALNUTS, 50c SYRUP, Crystal White, 5 Ibs 39c rom February through August 943, the report as a whole is a 20 per cent sampling of reports on more than 9,000,000 registrants examined from April 1942 to January 1944. It discloses t h a t during that period 59.6 per cent of such workers as household cooks, chauffeurs and valets were found to be physically disqualified for the armed services. Rejections were next highest among "emergency" or part-time workers and the unemployed, where 56.5 per cent were turned down, a n d among farmers and farm managers, where 56.4 per cent were disqualified. The survey, the first comprehensive report covering registrants called up since Pearl Harbor, offers no explanation of the relatively high rejection rate among these workers. At the other end of the range are students, with only 25.7 per cent of their number turned down,apparently because nearly all are in the lower age brackets. The report covers men of all age groups summoned for physicals, ranging up to registrants 45 for the early part of the 21 mouths surveyed. The t o t a l of registrants examined is n o t broken down as to aee. Reflecting a heavy total of rejections among Negroes, North Carolina's overall rate for the February-August 1943' period was 56.8 per cent of all examined, while Arkansas. and South Carolina each had a turn-down rate of 55.9 per cent. Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Virginia were all above 50 per cent. Oregon had the lowest rejection rate in the country--24.4 per cent. Over the first 12 months covered by the survey, the 10 leading causes, of rejection, together with the percentage of registrants examined turned down for each, were: Mental disease, 12.5 per cent; mental deficiency, 10,7; syphilis, 9.4; musculpskeletal (injuries, amputations, etc.), 9.3; heart disease, 8.8; eyes, 7.8; hernia, 7.8; nerve ailments, 5.5; ears, 5; and tuberculosis, 4.1. . For the second period this was the lineup: Mental disease, 17.9; mental deficiencies, 14.2;' musculoskeletal, 8.9; heart disease, 7; eyes, 6.3; hernia, 6.3; nerve ailments, 5; ears, 4.7; syphilis, 3.7; and non-medical, j 3.3 Physical standards for acceptance of syphilitics were lowered in the second period.

Magician Gives Cheer to Wounded Veterans Cincinnati, (U.R--Morris Holti- man is a war plant worker and a member of the Civil Air Patrol, but he derives his greatest pleasure as a magician pulling allied nations' flags out of hats for wounded servicemen.

After finding the breaks, Holata discovered that he had no knife or repair tools. . . . So he skinned the wires with his teeth. . . .
