19U. Clothing Stocks To Aid Refugees LONDON (bUFT The shopkeepers' headache is going to spell relief for poverty-stricken Europe when British postwar plans for re-habtlitation are put into effect. Right now coupon rationing is piling up stocks of clothing and materials on shelves in drapery stores throughout Britain, and shopkeepers have been wondering what they will do with them. Now they have been told that these are going to Europe in the wake of the first Allied armies to land on the continent, and the itl-clad peoples of the occupied countries will be clothed again. Warehouses and depots now are being cleared to store these clothes, and the retailers will not lose a penny on the transaction.

The Glasgow kicked off when the enemy flotilla showed on the horizon and the Nazi destroyers opened up almost immediately. We manoeuvred about and the action was at various ranges with our cruiser closing in all the time. The Germane employed' evasive tactics under a smoke screen. The two cruisers finally crippled three destroyers and then-we sank them by gunfire.

SLIGHTLY PUZZLED "From 1 45 In the afternoon until 4 oclock our eix-lnchers were going full blast. During that time our ack-ack guns were engaging German bombers. At one time we were banging away at the destroyers on one Bide and aircraft on the other.

"We first saw two enemy Bhips come over the horizon and we just rubbed our hands. Then another and another appeared but we said, Okay, let em come. "Then the number got up to eight and wa got a little puzzled. That was quite a force for even two cruisers to handle. And when lt were in sight we just began to close In.

Toward the end of the action gunfire from the Glasgow and ourselves had three stopped. The Germans seemed to split up Into two groups and it was one group of four to which we stuck for goodly while. There were so many of the enemy we could not deal with them all at once and some had to be neglected In the running battle to the southeast." LONDON (EUP). Bovine con tagious abortion, a disease which, 1 estimated, infects more than 40 per cent of the cattle of Great Britain and causes an estimated yearly loss of 40,000,000 gallons of milk and 4,000,000 has no known cure. This was stated by a representative of the Ministry of Agriculture's diseases of animal research station, at a meeting in London.

Treatment must be in prevention. The two recommended methods of control available were eradication by eegregatlon and preventive inoculation. If all the farmers who took no precaution about contagious abortion were prosecuted, half the farmers in Britain would be in jail, be said. "It lends itself to quackery. Between 80 and 85 per cent of cows which have once aborted a a result of the disease never do so again, ao it eapy to ascribe con-recurrence to some quack remedy.

Expert Doubts Perfect Crime MELBOURNE." Australia (BUP). Fifty years' experience in crime detection cases has built up a stock of memories for Dr. Crawford H. Mollison that are almost unequalled. Doctor Crawford.

Melbourne University lecturer in forensic medicine while still coroners surgeon. Is retiring. A new assistant pathologist at the city morgue 50 years ago he testified that Emily Mather, the fifth or sixth Mrs, F. B. Deeming, found burled In an empty house at Windsor, Victoria, was murdered by blows from a blunt instrument.

He gave evidence that the death of Leslie (Squizzy) Taylor, king of Melbourne's underworld for years, was due to a gunshot wound, not self-inflicted. He holds the world's record of 25,000 post-mortem examinations, averaging 10 a week. He does not think lt possible for a murderer to arrange hla crime so that' it passes the post-mortem as suicide or accident. This crime doctor" also believes that many murderers are never discovered because doctors who certify to death honestly believe that death Is due to natural causes.

The one producing mine Is the new Helen at Mlchlplcoten on the north shore of Lake Superior, where a deposit estimated at more than 60.000.000 tons of elderite is being converted into sinter suitable for use In blast turnaces of both the United States and Canada at the rate of more than 400,000 tons annually. At Steep Rock Lake In northwestern Ontario a hematite deposit with more than 30.000,000 tone of proven and probable ore and a further unestimated amount possible Is slated for production next year, by August or earlier. At least a part of this deposit la the rich lump hematite used In steel plant open hearth to "sweeten the pig iron which comes from the blast furnaces.

The Helen ts operated by Algoma Ore Properties, Ltd, wholly-owned subsidy of the Algoma Steel Corporation of Sault Ste, Marie, which also la exploring a magnetite deposit on the Goulais River, 60 miles north of the Sault. Preliminary estimate by ita engineer place the Indicated Goulais tonnage at 70.000.000. Dr. E. S.

Moore of the University of Toronto, who made a survey of the area last summer, saye In a report to the Ontario department of mines that the estimate is "reasonable." The Sherrltt Gordon Mining Company la exploring two properties In the Michiplcoten area the Josephine and Ruth Mines. Drilling and other work at the Josephine has Indicated 2,500,000 tons of hematite, while 28,000,000 tons of elderite have been proven at the Ruth. TEN-TEAR BOUNTY The Ontario Government has provided a bounty of two cents per metallic unit of Iron approximately 31 for each ton of beneftciated ore. The bounty wa provided for a 10-vear period beginning January 1. 1939.

Last year production of sintered ore from the Helen was 414,602 tons, of which 220,065 ton were shipped to the U.S. and the rest used in Algorrm's own blast furnaces. Production for this year was estimated In the corporation's annual report at 450,000 tops. Trace of iron were discovered at Steep Rock in 1897, but It was not until 1937 that the or hodles were located and development begun by the Steel Rock Iron Mines, Ltd. The deposit of iron lie under Steep Rock Lake.

To facilitate mining, the Seine River which flows Into the lake la being diverted and the lake itself drained. When this work 1 completed, production will begin. Reports of Steep Rocks engineers are that some of the ore there is lump hematite, low In sulphur, silica and tatanlum, and suitable for open hearth use.

3. The extent to which the Democratic PRrty continues to be a "one-man party, It fortunes almost completely tied up with Franklin D. Roosevelt, ie revealed In a survey just completed by the Institute. This shows that, with the nominating conventions not much more than six months away, the President Is the choice of more than 80 per cent of the Democratic voters for the 1944 nomination. The rn-kt most popular choice, Henry A.

Wallace, receives six per cent, while others poll three per cent or less each. As time goes on no other leaders seem to be emerging In the Democratic party with sufficient following to present much of a challenge to the President. With the lack of other candidates having broad appeal to the rank and file, the party is almost certain to put heavy pressure on Mr, Roosevelt to run agntn. The survey asked Democratic voters from coast to coaet that is, persons who want the Democratic party to win In 1944 to pick their present choice from among list of eight men most often talked about as possible Democratic nominees.

By GRANVILLE CAREW British United Press Staff Correspondent LONDON, Jan. 3. About a hundred years ago Macaulay, in one of his famous Essays, made a remark to the effect that about every seven years the Anglo-Saxon race felt some sort of urge to clean things up. He meant, if I remember rightly, a desire to clean up something or everything In the sense of reforming it. Whatever be meant, we certainly aeem to feel such on urge just We always do when a war is on.

Our picsent urge impels us, or our politicians, to reform our social system all In one go. And considering that most of it ha evolved after a thousand years of continuity it surely 1 a sufficiently wide ambition. It may even overleap itself, especially, if, after the war, the urge relaxes as similar urges have been known do. However, we must wait and see, For the moment we seem to be concentrating on education and medicine. The idea, it appears, is to put both into the hands of the State exclusively a procedure which just at present seems to be regarded as a panacea for all social debility.

Well, our education system Is old enough to be growing decrepit but the prescription of State educatjon which haa been administered in varying doses of compulsory education for about 80 years doesn't seem judging by results to have been notably effective; so apparently the dose la to be Increased. FOR EVERY CHILD The Intention now seems to be that every child shall embark on a continuously State-conducted educational tour from the kindergarten to the university. That la to aay, every child, whatever his or her social origin, whatever the status of the parents or the depth of their pockets shall be eligible to take the whole educational curriculum-given of course the natural ability to surmount the obstacles set un by various Intermediate examinations from time to time. Even ability to pass set examinations (sometimes merely facile) is not to be the only Open Sesame, So it may be supposed that in appropriate cases a sort of board of psychoanalyst examiners will be put onto bring to the surface whatever knowledge a candidate contains. There can be 10 fair criticism possible in these days of such an ideal in the abstract.

Nevertheless, one objection against schemes for universal high standard education which Is frequently heard is that only a small percentage of school children is capable of absorbing much more elementary education That objection, although probably supported by fact, seems to provide its own answer. T1IE DIE-HARDS Many of our die-hards of the old school, take a social line of objection. Consider, they say, our great public schools, nearly ail of them hundreds of years old indeed there are two dating back to before the Conquest consider those schools with their fine traditions and their great records down the centuries of our history! Consider the upbringing of their pupils. Consider the feelings of the parents, who do not send their sons and daughters to expensive and more or less exclusive schools only to mix with and acquira the manners and outlook of those mean streets, however able! Heavens! they exclaim, dont the authorities know that the tone of the school is proverbially the ton of tha most Inferior pupil? Havent they heard this one, A particularly common sort of wealthy parvenu wanted to "make his son a gentleman." After much persuasion he induced the very reluctant headmaster of a famous school io accept his son on condition that he the father did not visit tho son at school. When, unable to restrain himself any longer, he and the mother called on the headmaster at the end of a couple of months that distinguished alumnus of a famous Seat of Learning rushed towards them shouting enthusiastically.

"Oy, Oy! Gawd Blimey wot a kid! Now let us turn from education to medicine; from our heads to our stomachs and our hearts. STATE MEDICINE Thers is reason to suppose that the authorities want to turn medicine into a State service. A great deal of argument pro and con is going on not by any mean wholly In professional circles. What most of us want to know is Are we to lone our old Guide Philosopher and Friend, the Family Doctor; the General Practitioner the "G.P." We have known him all our lives; he has brought us into the world and ha has seen us leave it; he gave us castor oit and senna tea in our childhood and brlmstone-and-treacle in our pimply youth. Later on he saw to it that we took a blue pill and a black draught if our livers interfered with the joy of living.

If we developed rheumatism very likely he dosed Us with an extract based on the willow tree until chemist evolved the synthetic product which we now call aspirin. He saw us through measles and mumps and scarlet fever and all the commas ills hat wa ars heirs to. In hla succerrlv generations he may not always have kept abreast of all the latest medical fads and fashions of his time, but he has always known bis job and he has known us. He has all our trouble physical and mental and he haa observed Hippocratic Oath of his profession. whatsoever things I see or henr concerning the life of men in my attendance on the sick or even apart therefrom which ought not to noised abroad I will keep silence thereupon counting such things as sacred secrets." LOYAL TO WHOM? What sort of man, we wonder, will be put in his place? That is what people are asking.

They ponder another point: If the new State paid physician is to be civil servant, to whom primarily will his loyalty be? To hi employer i the State which pays hint, or to SYDNEY. Australia, Jan. 8. (CP). Attention is being paid here to an article "Wartime Canada! Looks Ahead" which Paul Malone, press attache in the office of the Canadian High Commissioner, Hon.

T. C. Davis, contributed to th. Australian Quarterly, the organ ol tha Australian Institute of Political Science. Malone wrote that In recent months there had been several de velopments in Canadian externa policies of great interest to Australia which had not been her.

After referring to Canada's effort, he emphasized that, in th words of Prime Minister Churchill Canada had beoome the linch-pi linking the Unlted States and Brjt aln.

Malone wrote that Prime Mi ter Mackenzie King had contri ed a thoughtful plan for continu postwar co-operation among United Nations. He referred to Prime Minister's speech In Pi liament on the need for soma 1 ternational organization with compromise between authority cot centrated among tha largest po. ers and the Idea of equality amot the 30-odd sovereign powers con prising tha United Nations. THAT WORD EMPIRE The part of Malones arlicl which attracted the most attentio was a quotation from a speech Brooke Claxton, parliamentary sistant to the Prime Minister, garding the terms British Empin and British Commonwealth.

Two ions have been brought home on stretcher from enemy prison camp to Mrs. Eastwood of London, But there is no rejoicing in the little home, surrounded by th grim devastation wrought by German bombs, Both sons died. The only other son still is a prisoner in Germany. John, the eldest boy, who came home In the last repatriation of wounded prisoners, had lost both legs and had arm and head injuries. He died a few days after wards.

The second boy was sent home month ago from Italy. He, too, had both legs amputated. He lived only a week. During the blits a bomb shattered Mrs. Eastwoods home, and she and her husband lost everything, Then Mr.

Eastwood whs taken ill and sent to the hospital where he still is lying. Mrs. Eastwood keeps her second home together by working as a cleaner. She says nothing of her troubles; her suffering is hidden from public view. GALLANT GUNNERS Graves said the thing that stuck In his mind was the conduct of the young gunners and the rest of the ships company.

They seemed not to be bothered by it at all, he said. Shells were falling all around the Enterprise and shrapnel was spraying over the decks from Even though a lot of the crew were mere youngsters they stood right up to It. With Canadian Paclflo Steamships before the war, Graves was in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve and was mobilized in August, 1939. He served in an armed merchant cruiser for a while, and then specialized In gunnery, Joining the Enterprise last May.

(AP, Esquire Magazine, whose Varga girl drawings and other material offended the post office departments sense of modesty last week waa ordered deprived of Its second-class mailing privileges.

Without ruling directly on whether the magazine is obscene, a question much debeated during lengthy hearings, Postmaster General Frank C. Walker ordered the mailing privileges revoked effective February 28.

In Chicago, David Smart, publisher of Esquire, said the ruling leaves me speechless. Well take lt immediately to Federal Court During the long hearings, post office department attorneys sought to show that the magazine was not only obscene but lewd and lascivious. In revoking Esquire second-class permit, Walker disregarded a 2-to-X vote by the three-member board of poet office officials which conducted prolonged hearings in October and November.
