Theodore Peshafc and his crew of signal corps photographers tear their hair, gnash their teeth and, otherwise display great wrath? Just walk up to them, smile sweetly and say: "Photography must be such fun--all you do all day is go around taking pictures of pretty girls." | , * * * They're very busy men, the signal corps photographers- of the Puerto Rican department laboratory, but pretty girls, alas, are the least of their multiple concerns. t * * * For instance: A battalion of trainees in battle dress charges through an obstacle course, advances against an imaginary enemy position, digs in for defense. As they move, a sweating signal corps photographer races along the sidelines recording every reaction of the trainees with a 35-mm movie camera * * * A few hours later aud miles away, staff -officers review the films and make accurate eyewitness decisions on t«e state of training of the troops. ^ * * * And the photographer who took the pictures? He's off. on another · job already. Because that's the tempo at which members of the signal corps photography units get around. Lt. Peshak. a. native.of Manly, explains that all his six-man crew has to do is: Take movies of troops in training, recording each stage iji their schooling. Take movies and still shots of every defense emplacement, camp, post and strategical area. Snap identification pictures of every officer and every civilian employe in the Puerto Rican department. ' Distribute t r a i n i n g films BEAD'S DRAWN, BUT THERE'S NOTHING TO SHOOT --for Lt. Ted Peshak, Manly, and his friends are stationed on Puerto Rico. However, they do know the tactics and here they are seen in demonstration on the wall which surrounds the city of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Peshak is holding a movie'camera. (U. S. army signal photo) throughout the island. Learn to operate every kind of camera from the glamorous 35-mm movie taker to the low- pest of box cameras. They must be prepared, too, for combat photography right at the front. Signal corps photographers are told: "Guns win battles, pictures win wars." *' * * So srim-faced cameramen so into battle with shock troops and shooting at tHe rate that exceeds the army's fastest-firing automatic weapon--the 35-mm camera will take 2,880 pictures a minute--. they make their invaluable record of the clash of men aud weapons. * * * Later, officers of the high command, studying the photographs with detachment impossible in the heat of battle. make observations as to morale and conditions of the troops and the enemy, efficiency of weapons, influence of terrain and" other factors on which broad * strategical'decisions may finally be based. LI. Pesnak's interest in photography dates back to his editorship of the Odebolt Chronicle. Snapping news pictures for his front pages paved the way for his assignment to the -Signal corps photo department when he was called to active duty. The entire crew at the signal corps photography lab- has one burning ambition--to record on film the triumphal entry of American troops into Berlin. "And then we'll go back home and take pictures of pretty girls for the rest of our lives." Sgt. Ralph Tatman, Spencer man, adds.

ARE 3 TIMES OVER MINIMUM 1943 Goal Necessitates Requirement Increase AMES--Iowa farmers last year averaged more than three times the production o£ 8 "war bond units" a man recently set by selective service rulings as the minimum which a man should produce in a year to be classified as an essential agricultural worker. Tabulations released by I. W. Arthur, Iowa State college agricultural economist, show that last year between 30 and 40 war food units were produced a man on many well-managed Iowa farms of 160 acres or more. * * * Arthur points out that the "war units" device could be used as a rough guide to help obtain maximum wartime food production on every farm. One unit is defined as the amount of labor involved in the production and rare of 5 acres of corn, of 3 litters of pigs or similar equivalents as designated. * * * The 1942 state average was 25 units a "man, after giving due credit for all .hired and family labor. This estimate is based on information from 1,985 farms of all kinds and classes. But to attain the 1943 production goals for Iowa, it will be necessary to produce 27 or more units a man on the average. Final decision as to selective service is in the hands of local boards, of course, and some agricultural workers who are producing more than the 8 unit national minimum may be called for military service. Production of war units a man was definitely lower in the southern pasture area of the state than in other sectors of Iowa * * * Greatest opportunities f o r production increases in 1943 He in the southern pasture area of the state where production of war units a man was definitely lower than in other sectors of Iowa. The tabulations show also that small farms were at a disadvantage in units produced a man. * * # Operators -on small farms and in the whole southern Iowa district aparently are making fuller utilization of he land resource than of the labor resource. Arthur points out that in southern Iowa and on small farms or farms that are short of feed, one good way to get fuller utilization of labor is to keep more livestock and to buy feed. Suggestions for maximum production efficiency on each farm in Iowa are being formulated at the present time in conjunction with check-ups on war units produced at each individual farm. Local AAA community committeemen are expected to make this check and to give suggestions for increasing production. * * * Since the drought of /1936 and the depression of 1937, Iowa farmers have been step- pine up their food unit output a man. In 1938 the figure was 22, raised to 23 in 1940, to 24 in . 1911 and to 25 in 1942. Arthur points out, however, that if Iowa is to average the 27 or more units a man which are needed to make out 1943 goals, there cannot he many instances of production below 20 units a man. The 'low one-third of the farm security clients on the poorer land in one southern Iowa county produced 17.5 units a man in 1SH1. It is estimated that in 1942 the average Farm Security client in Iowa produced mofe than the 20 unit figure. The average for all farm security clients in the corn belt for 1942 was 19.5 units a man.
