Bowles, price administrator, has stated, that we continue to face further problems ^^ in our difficult task of stopping "*"· inflation. Mr. Bowles*has repeatedly said that. the decisions , we have to maKe may sound unpleasant to some but they urgently require public understanding.' To meet one of the most serious of those problems, it is now necessary to take a series of important steps. The problem of apparf! prices, quality and supply ,.are foremost. OPA's actions will be ^greeted with enthusiasm by millions of consumers, Mr. Bowles added. However, he also stated that they are bound to stir .up some unfavorable comment, part of it unknowingly wrong as to facts and a small part of it knowingly and irresponsibly departing f r o m facts. ' Here is'the problem as Bowles sees it:-We have managed to hold the .cost of living within a one per cent rise over the last 18 HEREIN MASON CITY Order that special little girl a valentine or birthday gift that ' keep's coming all year.

H.-F. Dear^American Red Cross assistant : field director, who has seen' active service in the southwest ' Pacific, concluded the program- with an informal talk on what the.Red Cross is doing for the boys in this area. He told of a trip aboard a transport ship, of the inconvenience, the heat, poor food . and. other hardships the boys have to put up with in the climate of that area. "The.

Duane Brand, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Brand, is home on a 30 day furlough after spending the past IE months in the southwest Pacific, where he was in several major engagements. A marine, Cpl. Brand has been in service lor old Campbell reporting for the nominating committee. , As a special feature of the evening's program, W. Earl Hall, member of the evecutive · board, interviewed t h r e e servicemen, Tech. Sgt. Paul B. Brown, now .a civilian, but formerly in the parachute infantry, Tech. Cpl. Leonard Boyd, tank,crew, and Electrician's Mate 2/c Don Law, submarine service. The 3 servicemen had seen-action, both Sgt Brown and Cpl. Boyd being wounded in Italy, ahd Mate Law. having seen duty in the S. W. Pacific. Each had a long; story to tell and could not say enough in praise of the work of the Red Cross. Sgt. Brown told in an informal man-' ner of his training and later of his experiences in North Africa and Italy, where he saw combat duty. It was at Cassino where he was wounded.a 2nd time, this one putting him out of action for good. ' "Blood plasma is wonderful stuff," said Sgt. Brown. "In case of shock, where yon lose every bit of vitality, you don't have to stop, just a shot' of plasma and yon come right ont of It. ."Give all yon should for blood plasma," said Sgt. Brown. He said that every parachutist jumps with 2 units of blood plasma on them, and thex. are trained how to use it on the field. . Sgt. Brown's warm approval ot all of the work of the Red Cross bases, which he said were everywhere, also was voiced by Mate Law, who has seen most of his action out of Pearl Harbor. His sub has seen 5 successful patrol runs and has never come back without sinking a Jap ship. He also told of the work o£ the Red Cross at Christmas time and even on the tiny Pacific isles, 3 -years. He is now 20 years old. I where one Red Cross. sign said, personnel ever joined in the black market of selling'cigarets, sweaters or donated articles to the men. Surgical dressings offered for sale esponsibility by the army have been made by cross."private manufacturers, according to Mr. Dear. These could not be used,, being .below the standards of those made by the Red Cross. Mr. Dear told of many experiences in New Guinea, which he described as "1,400 miles long hy 450 miles wide of stinking slimy jungle." When, it rains there from 2 to 3 inches, at'a time, and the sun comes :out, the men breath steam,' he said. . -· "There have been few replacements in New Guinea," said Mr. Dear. "Most of tbe .supplies and men have gone to Europe. Mai! service will be better in the future, for mall is the greatest morale builder in the U. S. army." Mr. Dear said that V-mail was making much better connections at present. The Red Cross is the means of communication between 'the people at home and the boys at the front. · "In the southwest Pacific they invade every day. There are hundreds of islands and it is impossible for field servicemen to cover all of the islands, but. a field office and communications have been established 3 days after th' first landing has been made on a beachhead." He told of one instance where a Ja'p bomb' set fire to the Red Cross supplies and that after a 12 day fire, the fieldmen took what wa left, captured Jap equipment ani had the office, in condition again "We are doing everything w can to better the welfare of th boys ont there and they descry all they can get," sail Mr. Dear "Mopping up is a job almost asj tbe invasion of these is- ands. On many of the islands lere are still many trapped Japs I've spent 20 months with well kids and there is no worry my mind about the future o he U. S. Every American has a to help the Red The meeting was closed by the inging of "God Bless America," ed by Mr. Hall. Invocation for the evening was asked by Father R. '. Murphy and the benediction yas said by the Rev. G. H. Bam- ord. The Junior Red Cross or- hestra, directed by W. A. Storer, played preceding-the meeting. D fc. L. Brynjulfson Jsted by Navy as Wounded in Action Pfc. Leonard O. Brynjulfson, Mason City, has been wounded in action according to an AP dispatch received Monday naming 10 Iowa casualties. Pfc. Brynjulfson entered service with the marines in May, 1943.

Are S till'Incomplete Mrs. Sarah I. Solum, 58, wi£a of Carl Solum, 121 6th S. W,, died Tuesday morning at 9:30 o'clock after a 6-month illness. Funeral arrangements are incomplete. The body is at the Patterson funeral home. Surviving are Mr- Solum, 4 sons, ill in the armed forces--Richard if Fort Belvoir, Va., Chester, in he Philippines,. Palmer, in Italy and Carl, Jr., in the merchant marine; 2 daughters, Mrs. Eldon Tinch of Mankato, Kans., and Mrs. Harold Hennagir of Mason City; 4 brothers, 3 sisters and 5 grandchildren. . . . Time and place of the funeral will be announced later. The Pat- :erson funeral home is in charge. months. This is in spite of an increase in the cost of clothing of 'over 11'per cent. Rents have been held stable. Food prices have actually gone down in this period. That is the only reason \ve have come near holding the line. We cannot rely on a continued downward trend of food prices. Those who have studied the problem. agree that the alarming rise in clothing, prices shows no indication of abating. 'In fact, quite tbe reverse. The rate ct rise is accelerating. Unless we take firm action now. the entire stabilization - program will be in danger. The principal reasons for the increase in · the department of labor index of clothing prices are: -1. Shifting by manufacturers to higher price lines, and consequent disappearance of low .cost clothing from · the stores, forcing consumers to buy more expensive goods. For example, .whereas 2 years ago 70 per cent of women's dresses sold below S7.95, .70 per cent .now sell above that price. 2. Actual price increases. 3. Deterioration in quality of many garments, causing , a further price increase that cannot be measured. · While the average family income in the nation has: increased considerably, there, are millions of white collar workers and families with fixed incomes who have little- or no increased buying power..There are the servicemen's families living, on allotments. The increased cost of clothing is work- ing a great hardship on these| groups. With the rise in clothing prices, | with' quality deteriorating rapidly, with low and medium priced I apparel, less and less available, I and with insufficient textiles to I meet civilian demand, any pro-1 gram to remedy this, situation I cannot be mild. For 2 years now I we have tried mild measures. The! time, has come, OPA feels, to act I with courage and with a full! sense of responsibility to the| public. . ; · Accordingly, OPA and WPB inl consultation with industry are I about to take action in a jointf program .that will tighten con-1 trols. Within tbe next few months.! the results of this program should I be: I 1. Within the limits of supply,| textiles will be channelled inti more essential and lower prig types of apparel. 2. Manufacturers will producel in the same average price lines! in which they were producing 21 years ago.. 3. On the average, this clothing will be of better quality/for the price. 4. Most clothing will carry the tags giving the OPA legal ceiling price. 5. Firmer control of prices will! pr n be in effect at all levels including retail. It is important to note that this program will hot increase thd total supply of civilian clothing! but it will shift the emphasis; from high priced and non-essenn tial garments to the essential and! lower priced clothing.
