Hart of New Jersey. The genial, 51-year-old, heavyset Congressman with almost-gone red hair took the ever-present cigar from his mouth and said: "Just because something is done or said that doesn't exactly agree with what I think, isn't going to make it im-A.Tn«Tif«Ti That's for " the committee, y^* n g as a whole to decide.

In explaining why he voted against establishing a permanent body to investigate un-American activities when its creation was voted on after a cagey parliamentary move by Representative Rankin OD-, Miss.) at the opening of the 79th Congress, he says: "I merely voted against its permanency. We certainly need such a body now, but after the war I am confident the country win be so unified un- American activities wfll be negligible.'' Representative Harts' record in Congress shows he has closely followed the New DeaL He is an able orator and extemporaneous speaker and well liked personally by both Republicans and Democrats. Most of his activities on the hill have been in connection with his membership on the committee of Merchant Marine and Fisheries. His No. 1 interest, he claims, however, is to see that the cities are adequately paid for the land and facilities ta- ken from them by the TJ. S. Government during the war. L«oks T« Fvtare "It is not for me to dwell on what has been done by the former Dies Committee," he commented. "We will study and evaluate its files and records, and make use of such material as we see fit. but now I am looking to the future."

GONOVER MAN, HOME FROM C.-R, SERVICE UPON GUADALCANAL The life of a Seabee overseas is not an easy one, for while as a rule they are not shouldering guns or digging foxholes, they must follow close on the heels of invasion forces, ready to bund up what enemy and friendly fire has destroyed, and must do it quickly so as not to hamper the progress of the war. Darwin D. Ralston, CM 2/c, now home on a 20-day leave with his brother, Gene Ralston of 228 Gordon street, was a natural for the Seabee outfit, for before entering service, he conducted a housing contracting business at Xenia. So, in the early part of 1942, he enlisted, and from August 31, 1942 until January 6. 1943, was stationed /m Guadalcanal. Attached to the Krst Marine division, which permits him to wear the uniform of that corps, he has been in American Samoa, Pago Pago, New Hebrides, Guadalcanal, Tulagi, New Zealand, New Caledonia, and Pearl Harbor during his 27 months of overseas .service. He has bunt everything from roads, bridges and houses to airports and gas supply tanks, for what ever the Marine division needed, his battalion of Seabees were alwavs on hand to see that they got it. life No Picnic The work for Ralston wasnt exactly pleasant, for once, for a period of three days, sea lanes were tied up to such an extent that it was impossible to transport food into the island the Seabee outfit was then building up. For three days Ralston and the other men lived on Japanese rice left there and fish heads, which rats and maggots had overran. Ralston was recently discharged from the hospital in San Leandro California, where he has been hospitalized for three months, due to injuries received in New Caledonia in a bomb dump explosion which occnred just 200 feet from where he was working. Since his injuries were slight, he wfll report to Camp Bidicott, Davis- vffle. Rhode Island at the expiration of his leave for six morths of limited duty. Following this, he may be sent overseas again to continue to his construction work. Ralston, a graduate of the Lena- Conover high school with the class of 1931, entered service February 28, 1942 and trained at Great Lakes 111., Bradford, Virginia, and Gulf port, Tilings are running fine on the Silesian frontier -- especially the Germans.
