Fly Half Million Fish Eggs to Lake Titicaca New York, (U.R)--The dying fish of Mandalay are v e r i t a b l e "groundhogs" compared to Lake Titicaca's "flying" fish eggs. When the United States decided to ship a half: million fertilized fish eggs to the South American lake, located in southern Peru in the heart of the almost inaccessible Andes mountains, the problem arose how to transport the eggs 4,000 miles without losing the cargo through spoilage. Pan American Grace Airlines · volunteered to ferry the eggs by plane. The fastest ocean liner could not have made the trip in less than 3 weeks, but a cargo plane succeeded in bringing the eggs from the Great Lakes region to Lake Titicaca in 4 days.

J., (U.R)--The German attitude toward prisoners of war changed from one of harshness, while the nazis were winning, to one of kindness after the tide had turned, an American who returned with other repatriates aboard the exchange motorship Gripsholm said Thursday. Francis Vicovari, young New York architect and volunteer ambulance driver, said that when the allies began winning, more barracks were built to house the prisoners and the foot! became better. "There has been a noticeable change in the treatment of prisoners at the camp where I was interned in a year's time," he said. "A year and more ago when Germany was on lop. they treated the prisoners harshly and camp conditions were bad. Now that the Germans know they can't win the war, there is a decided improvement in their treatment of'their enemies." .Other repatriates said that um-e- 'Not connected with any company similar name or brand.

Jar 24e lenting allied air raids against the reich has lowered civilian morale and that the nation was reeling under the attacks, but warned that Germany was by no means near internal collapse. They also reported that Edouard Hcrriot, one time premier of France, died several months ago in a private asylum near Paris, following a mental breakdown, while interned by the Germans. There was no official announcement of his death, and reports of the repatriates have not been confirmed. The G22 Americans and Latin Americans, many of whom had spent more than 2 years- in nani prison camps, brought back stories of discomfort, insufficient food and severity of gestapo confinement, but no charges of atrocities. The Gripsholm docked at 3:30 p. in. Wednesday and by 11 o'clock Wednesday night more than 100 passengers had been, disembarked, most of them diplomats. Red Cross and government officials will continue the job of questioning and discharging the others Thursday. Ambulances were waiting at the dock to take 35 sick and wounded soldiers to hospitals. One of the first to leave the 18,131 ton Swedish-American vessel, as she successfully completed her 4th exchange mission, was S. Pinckney Tuck, U. S. charge d'af- faires in Vichy before he was interned. He carried for delivery to the state department in Washington a bitter indictment of the Vichy government's action in surrender- American diplomats, newspaper correspondents and welfare workers to the Germans when France capitulated. "Hitler's seizure of Americans at Lourdes was tantamount to rape--a violation of every known precept of polite relations between nations," Tuck's indictment said. In a similar vein, the spokesman for the Latin-American diplomatic corps, Gilbcrto Bosques, former Mexican charge d'affaires in Vichy, charged that "Pierre Laval's action in arresting and handing over diplomats accredited to the Mexican government to the police of another power was a blot on France's honor." Unlike others who have returned from internment in enemy prison camps, the repatriates surprised welcomers at the pier with their matter-of-fact attitudes. IMost of them admitted they had not had a miserable time in the camps. Some possessed only the clothes they \vore, and many were without funds, while others suffered from malnutrition. But all seemed cheerful. First passenger off the ship was Mrs. Sarah Benton, mother o James Webb Benton, U. S. vic consul at Marseilles, who spent 14 months in internment at Baden Baden, Germany. She said tha their food consisted mostly of po tatoes, but added that ''we li'ai meat two or three times a week. The same food complaint wa voiced by others. Six hundred and B3 person started on the voyage from Lisboi but only 662 arrived. Mrs. Jean nette A. Kaufmann, 68, Chicago died aboard ship after sufferin a paralytic stroke, and was burio at sea. The youngest person aboard th exchange ship was 12-weeks-ol son of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Whit comb, of Springfield, Mass. James D. Pond. 15, making hi first visit to the United States tol how internees at Baden-Bade cheered when flying fortresses ap pcarcd over the camp. ! Most of the diplomats were reluctant to talk, except to agree with Tuck that they were happy to be in a free country again. One of the few who did make a statement was Douglas C. MacArthur, of Washington, nephew of Gen. Douglas MacArthur. "It's swell to be back," he said, j "but not half so swell as it's going i to be to go back to my job." j Marshall Vance, of Glendalc, j Cal., American consul at Lyons*, France, said he haa been "well treated." and that the work at the Baden-Baden hotel where he was interned was done by French, Czechs and Dutch, "all of whom hated the nazis." Urge Demos Make Change in Convention Washington, (U.R)--Rep. Eugene E. Cox, (D., Ga.), Thursday, demanded changes in democratic national convention procedure whiph would provoke the bitterest kind of infra-party dispute. In an address prepared for delivery at Moultrie, Ga., but released here. Cox summoned the south to unite to compel the party convention to return to the two- thirds majority system of nominating presidential candidates. The two-thirds rule was abolished in the harmony convention of 1930 when triumphant democrats nominated President Roosevelt for a second term. That rule, requiring that a nominee must receive a minimum vote of two- thirds of convention delegates, almost prevented Mr. Roosevelt's first nomination in 1332. It did actually prevent the nomination of " hamp Claik, ot Missouri, in the democratic national convention of 1912. Woodrow Wilson was chosen here after Clark piled up a majority vote but was unable to achieve a two-to-one margin. Under the two-thirds rule, southern delegates had in effect a veto power against any candidate. "When the two-thirds rule wa abrogated," Cox said, "the south completely lost its power inde pendently to influence party af fairs. It is true that the south may still vote in national elections, bu for candidates chosen by others. N.B.C. Famous R i t t Crackers Snnnyficld Enriched Flour . . . . Reliable Cut C.rrcn Beans . . , .

Pvt. Norman Dilson. former New York City liremon who resigned to have himself drafted, spent the first night home on furlough from his Alabama camp visiting the boys in the fire house. They were hardly through the first round of coffee when the bells clanged. Off they went, firemen and soldier. Three more alarms sent them careening through the streets of Brooklyn. "Swellest ride I ever had," said the fireman on his busman's noli- day. )UC.BT IO LIMIT QUANTITIES KESEVED| Ford's Food Vans Help British Bomb Victims Dearborn. Mich., (U.R)--Approxi- mately 38 million meals have been carried to povsons in bombed areas of Great Britain and northern Ireland by Forct emergency food vans since, they were placed in service in 1941. Henry Ford recently received this information in a letter from the Right Hon. Lord Perry of Stock-Harvard, who is chairman ot the board of managers of the Ford Motor company, Ltd., of London, Eng. Lord Perry revealed that he had received a letter from the queen expressing her appreciation for the work that the service is doing. "So luiiff as the south submits t this, a single northern stale in th politically doubtful column ant with only u handful of people \vil continue ot receive governments favors far exceeding; those ue stowed upon the entire south. * ; Now is the time for the soul! to make ilseU heard. Let the do mand be made upon candidates fo the presidency and vice presidenc before the convention is held tha they make disclosure of their atti tude toward the proposal to re nact this two-thirds rule." Cox is a notable anti-new dealer nd a consistent critic of Mr. loosevclt. On those grounds some ersons may discount his pro- iosal to re-cnacl a convention rule vhich was abrogated at the president's direction. But Cox Thursday nerely reinforced an earlier plea iiade by Former Gov. E. D. Rivers, of Georgia, at last .January's democratic n a t i o n a l committee nesting here.
