Peterson. A year ago Peterson was down and out--financially. He had been, forced to close his lubbock hotel because the shortage of gasoline took away his guests. He got'a job as a shipyard welder on the Pacific coast, and met a man who once made his living manufacturing toy walking ducks. Peterson liked the idea. He came home and set up a walking duck factory in Lis. home. The idea caught on. . Now J'eterson has 85 women working in his Evans company factory, all of them making his toys, and 4 salesmen out on the road. ' "Sales are limited only by the amount of material and .labor I can get," says Peterson. "After the Acetylene Blow Torch Gives Soothing Shave Tyler, . Texas, (U.R)--When the circus came to town, residents found out how to shave elephants. The Job isn't as hard as it sounds --the trainer simply takes an acetylene blow torch and goes to work. This removes the elephant's stiff, black hair and at the same time provides a soothing massage. Tough babies, these elephants. Predicts 5- Year Boom in Construction New York, (U.PJ^A precedent- shattering construction b o o m which will last at least 5 years is a postwar certainty, according to a n internationally-known building expert. Harry D. Watts, chairman of the board of James Stewart Co., international engineers and contractors, says this boom will include schools, bank buildings, hospitals city structures, homes, factories park--every kind of building imaginable. He expects that many of these will be built In America, but sai that "European demands for reconstruction are already felt here.' Scores of orders have accumulated, he declares, and surveys indicate that hundreds more are now being planned. Missions from Europe are now here, he says, including a 7-man delegation from the French, studying proposals to rebuild their once-great ports. "The American construction in dustry is ready to go," Watts said "If labor will do its share . . . i Washington adopts a hands-off policy, the construction industry will go ahead like greased lightning." GI CAN WIN TRIP Port of Spain, Trinidad, (U.R)-- To spur personnel at this No. 1 U. S. Caribbean base, commodore C. C. Baughman, U. S. navy, commander naval operating base, has announced a weekend trip via air to one of the best-known pleasure resorts in the West Indies as a reward to the enlisted men nominated by the war bond officer in each activity, as contributing the most toward the war bond sale. This trip will be awarded on the basis of the amount of work, time and effort expended by the enlisted men and not for the highest pur- j chase of war bonds. I High Cost of Laving; Cotton Necktie Costs 100% More to Wash Seattle, (5 s )--Capt Stuart B Mockford sent his necktie to th OPA. In an accompanying letter h explained the .khaki cotton tie cos 16 cents 4 years ago at Fort Fran cis Warren, Wyo., and had depre dated approximately 40 per cen but it still cost 20 cents to have i laundered in Seattle. "I can no longer afford to ^ 100 per cent more than it is wort to have it washed," the captain wrote. Large land areas in Australi have been made productive in re cent years by construction of irri gation dams, boring of artesian .1 wells and other public works. uly 1.09S ept 1,05% 1.8614 ARtEY-- . 1.09H, uly 1.04ft 1.50*4 l.SO',1 1-UVi I.1IH'. l.OBTi 1.07 Vt .65 Wi .60 1.081'. l.OWi 1.60% l.SZ'/i l.ll'.i 1.10% 1.03 1.074i .65 .(K114 .57 Vi 1.12 1.087. 1.0H1 1.03 Yt 1.09VI 1.09'A Vie With U.S. Nurses as Main Attractions at Hospital in Burma By JACK GUINN United Press Staff Correspondent Myitkyina, North Burma, (U.R)-- Down by the banks of the churning river Irrawaddy, through bamboo thickets which not long ago were the backdrops for battle, stand 6 busy monuments to the incongruity of war--6 electric washing machines which for 8 hours a day turn out the laundry for the American hospital near here. The washing'machines, powered by the hospital's own plant, are the main mechanical attractions at this forward American base, sloshing away in complete peace near the battlegrounds of w h a t was one of .the longest fights in the north Burma campaign. Other hospital attractions, o p e r a t i n g under their own power, are 18 pretty female American nurses who recently joined the hospital. Their laundry, with the exception of those intimate and flimsy garments which women do not trust to the indifferent devices of a washing machine, is done by the 6 products of civilization. Lt. Col. Warren Diessner. of Waconia, Minn., commanding officer of the hospital, said he was very proud of his laundry. It conies in handy, s i n c e the demands of a 400 bed hospital and its staff are fairly large.' Diessner, incidentally, also has taken over a 400 bed Chinese hospital which had been maintained by famed Dr. Gordon (Burma surgeon) Seagrave until Seagrave moved out to .be with front" line troops moving south from Myit- kyina. The water from Diessner*s riverbank laundry emporium is taken from the Irrawaddy, piped uphill about 50 yards, strained to remove the mud, and then piped back down to 2 tanks where it is heated by fires built underneath the tanks. The water is piped to each washing machine through a flexible metal hose, something like the hoses Americans used to see when they went to gasoline filling stations. The business of actually washing the clothes in the Myitkyina laundry is supervised by Pvt. Harlan Nimmo of Ann, 111., and Pvt. Lloyd Wagner of Milwaukee, Wis. When cornered by reporters, Nimmo and Wagner were clearing ground to add to the present 1,200 feet of clothesline which has been strong oh bamboo poles along* the banks of the river. Nimmo was up In a tree, sawing, off .limbs which were falling fairly close to Wagner who was on the ground flailing the underbrush with a Burmese dab, which is a knife. The 1,200 feet of line was heavy with wet sheets, operating gowns, Investigation of Retirement System Des Moliies, (IP)--Gov. Robert D, Blue said Saturday he would ask the legislature to investigate the "advisability and cost of establishing here in Iowa a retirement system for public employes" on a state, county and municipal level. "There are in the legislature several bills in which some particular group is interested in a retirement plan. It is my thought that it is unfair for public em- ployes to be discriminated against as far as private employes are concerned," the governor declared. Blue said he was not suggesting any details, but wanted the matter given legislative attention. At least 12 states have general retirement plans for public em- ployes. , . Gloria Vanderbilt Announces Separation From Pat Di Cicco New York, (U.PJ--Gloria Morgan Vanderbilt Di Cicco and her husband Pasqiiale (Pat) Di Cicco, heir to a broccoli farm and actors agent, have "separated by mutual consent," the young heiress' attorney and guardian, Thomas B. Gilchrist^said Saturday. The couple was married on Dec. 28, 1941 in a nuptial mass at the Santa Barbara, Cal., mission. Gilchrist said that the question of a divorce had not come up but thai it was his "understanding that Mr. Di Cicco would not stand in the way of one," if it came up at some future date. DIES AT HAMPTON Iowa Falls--Funeral services for Mrs. Anna Shafer, 81, will be held at "St. Mark's CathoOic church Monday morning with the Rev Fr. John Hartigan officiating Burial will be at Eldora. Most o: her life was spent in Hardin county. She died Friday at Hampton She is survived by 5 daughters and 3 sons. OVER 18,000 YANKS AWOL Crime Gangs More Serious Than Absences Paris, (U.PJ--Between 18,000 and 19,000- American soldiers -- the equivalent of one and one-hall United States infantry divisions-are .now AWOL in the European theater, the U. S. provost marshal disclosed Saturday. The number is twice as hl«h as It was In the European theater before the invasion, be said, but emphasized it is still lower than in World war I. The disclosure came a day alter a statement by Brig. Gen. P. B. Rogers, commanding general of the Seine section, placing the figure at more .than 12,000, of which more than half were said to be involved in rapidly growing black market operations. Simultaneously Col. E r n e s t Buhrmaster, provost marshal of the Seine section, said the number of AWOL arrests in, Paris has tripled in recent months. "In London we got along with 700 HP's," he said. "Here we have 4,000 although this is not as important a base as London was;" Even more serious than the number of AWOL's, he said, was the "channelization of c r i m e among the soldiers into gangs." He gave two reasons for the rise of black market gangs--First the low exchange rate giving a soldier only meager pay and at the same time enabling him to get fabulous prices in francs for government equipment and, second, acute civilian shortages creating a market for anything a soldier can sell. Sidney and Melbourne hold about one-third of the population of Australia. , · J. R.

He said the officers and the nurses used the same showers. "But not," he said, "at the same time." And then he showed the pride of the hospital, a wash basin (for face and hands) w i t h running water, invented by Capt. Elmer Myers of Philippi, W. Va. The basin is in Myers' quarters. It is fed from a small tank placed aboye and outside the door. When the person desiring to be washed steps on a f o o t pedal whittled from a piece of wood, water spurts from the rubber tube into the basin, an old 5 gallon can with the top cut off. Myers also had provided his own personal shower with handy gadgets. The shower was supplied by a tank which was placed on a platform 10 feet high. There were steps, salvaged f r o m some old house, leading up to the tank and used to carry water up to fill the tank. But this got tiresome. So Myers got some old pipe and a discarded hand pump and now he carries the wafer to the foot of the s t a i r s , arranges his pumping apparatus and fill his tank. All for a bath.
