Wheat and onts advanced fractionally in sympathy with the dark grain. 'Dllerings of rye on basis of the announcement that 2 distillers were to start using some rye alone with wheat in production of alcohol on an experimental basis failed to find any buyers and even early Wednesday the trade was inclined to be cautious since the quantities involved are loo small to be of market significance. Late trade advices however, said additional distillers have been ordered to use part rye in their alcohol o u t p u t .

STUFFER- ' ' HM--I MUiT MAKE HIM fcEALrZE Yanks Laugh at Japs' 'Zero Hour" Broadcast .--Sgt. Burnell Flack states n a letter received by his wife that the boys in his group are fun listening to the "Zero Japanese broadcast. Every group of boys coming to vicinity, near Australia, is welconjed, and attempts made to break their morale. A snappy band plays American tunes, and girls sing poptilai songs. The announcer tells the boys how the 4-F men are "stealing" their wives and sweethearts home. To the Australiai announcer tells storic: of the Americans and their attempts to take their wives and sweethearts away from them. They tell them how futile is their fighting. To Sergeant Flack's unit came the message, "We wish the 16th Signal Corps wo-jld settle down." That group has been "hopping" to various islands in that vicinity. Sergeant Flack says that contrary to breaking the morale, the broadcast strengthens morale as well as provides a lot of laughs, and "they won't be broadcasting the Zero Hour from Tokyo when we get there."

They have built a diving helmet from materials lying around the fighter command base and have acquired enough footage of rubber hose to allow them to explore the depths of nearby harbors.
