FOUR COPPER AND BRASS SCRAP DRIVE LOOMS WASHINGTON, March 31H.Fh-Th War Production Board is trying to avoid it, but may have to carry a copper, brass and bronze collection campaign into the country' homes. The drive would mean getting out the trinkets, ash trays, candlesticks, souvenirs end what-nots Alan LADD Helen WALKER 'LUCKY JORDAN' that accumulate in the average household, as well as old curtain rods and the metal from worn-out weather-proofing strips. So far WPBs Conservation division has concentrated on industrial brass and copper, end has been getting hundreds of thousands of tons of the precious scrap from cooperative factories. However, it may prove necessary, in order to provide a production insurance stockpile, to go to the public, officials said. LANCASTER, PA., NEW ERA WEDNESDAY, MARCH St, tWS NEW P.

GILLESPIE'S NEW ASSISTANT" Right Way Is Easy Way To Sow War Garden Seeds Hazards of Blind Flying Through Fog Reported Overcome ON THE HOME FRONT Civilian Supply Lacks Strong Controlling Agency in Wartime; Some Shortages Likely to Be Severe (This Is another of the aeries of stories on planting a war garden.) Theres a right way and a wrong way to plant seed in a Victory Garden. Do it right and youll have a professional-looking plot, a garden that will be your pride and joy and an efficient producer. The modern American method of seeding a small truck patch is to sow in rows, witli the plants spaced far enough apart to permit the gardener to stand up as he cultivates With hoe or wheel hoe. One of Natures rules requires that you always sow more seeds than you expect to grow, even though the germination is 100 per cent. The reason for this is that the hazards that involve plant life drought, disease, floods, etc. kill many plants in their youth. On the other hand, if you sow seeds too thickly they crowd each other badly; plants will need thinning. After the seed is in the ground, your next job is all-important. Rake soil over them lightly but try to se to it that every seed comes in contact with as many particles of soil as possible. Dont pound the earth over the seed, but exclude air pockets. The steps in sowing are illustrated by the following drawings and directions: Hello, 2nd WEEK, Hello! Lancaster Demands A Second Week For Hello, FRISCO, Hello TSE GREAT FOUR STAR MUSICAL HIT! V pr' Dont guess about distances and accuracy when making your rows. Use stakes and heavy cord to get them straight. First, working from your garden plan, note the distances you want between rows. Remember, you will be walking up and down these aisles all season as you cultivate. Eighteen inches is a good minimum distance between rows in most cases, although some plants, of course, require considerably more elbow room. Outline the entire .garden, showing the intended rows by planting small stakes and then, using two fairly large stakes, stretch the cord between them and prepare to make that first row. Get it parallel to the borders and you are well on your way to a well-plotted garden. if Jink i tit He TECHNICOLOR LAIRD CRESAR JUNE HAVOC v UEB CROSS WEEK ? 13 1,hn,7 JIMS CAFE Frederick & Shipprn 8t.

A drill is a shallow, continuous trench. A hill, a term used in the case of cucumbers, squash, pumpkin, etc., merely means a spot in the trench were several large seeds are sown in a group. A hill is not an elevation. Dont be too fussy about measuring the depth of your seed trench; the important thing is to get it shallow. In general, one-half inch for small seeds, one to two inches for peas, beans and corn and three inches for onion sets will do the job. Using the stretched cord as a guideline, take the corner of your hoe and draw a straight line in the loose garden soil the length of the row. CHICAGO, March 31. (A5) Research in aviation to further the war effort has brought many new advances in the industry, including an invention that means the elimination of the hazards of blind flying through fog, even at night, says one of the industrys leaders. President Ernest R. Breech of the Bendix Aviation corporation in an address last night' to the Illinois Manufacturers Costs association disclosed that through a startling development hazards of blind flying will be definitely conquered. He divulged no details, stating that these developments are so broad in the scope of their application for military purposes that 1 hint to you how this has been accomplished. I can tell you that it is no longer experimental, and I can give you positive assurance thal fog, even at night, will join the long list of weather hazards con auered by man in his desire tc fly. By JAMES MARLOW and GEORGE ZIELKE WASHINGTON, March 31 (P) Everybodys business is nobodys business. That is Joseph L. Weiner talking about you. Put it another way: What i the connection between a manpower shortage in Buffalo laundries and large absenteeism from the aircraft plants there on Monday and Tuesday, customary washdays in the American home? Weiner is director of the War Production Boards Office of Supply which he said made a survey and found these things; Aircraft company officials in the Buffalo area said flatly that a major cause of their absenteeism was due to the inability of the laun-dies to meet all the demands on them now and workers stay home to wash. In Warsaw and Kilmarnock in Virginia the communities are served by just a few retail stores. In each community the largest distributor of groceries is a chain store. In each case the chain store, now able to dispose of its merchandise through fewer outlets due to the war is proposing to close it store. All this meant, Weiner notes, that in both communities great difficulties must be expected for the remaining grocers to obtain a larger share of meat and other food supplies to meet the needs of the population no longer served by the chain. Those might be war hardship cases, unrelated to you, if it were not for this additional statement by Weiner: Right now production for the military and production of the rockbottom needs for civilian are on a par both are equally necessary to the wir program and it is no longer the guns or butter period but the "guns-butter time. In many areas, he warns, the shortages are likely to be so severe that unless appropriate action is taken in advance, supplies to civilians will fall below the minimum essentials. Then civilian health, safety or morale will suffer and war production itself will inevitably decline. When he says everybodys business is nobodys business he means simply: The Office of Civilian Supply is one of many organizational units of the WPB. It has no official responsibility on behalf of civilians for food, housing, transportation manpower and other resources which are vital to the maintenance of essential civilian supply. Weiner pointed out last week to the Senate Banking committee which is considering a bill at would set up a civilian supply administration independent of the WPB that: There is no single, central body clothed with adequate authority and responsibility to maintain that vital civilian organism, our civilian economy, the home front. As some examples of agencies which 'must provide for the military, foreign and domestic needs he lists these various administrative offices: petroleum, food, rubber, defense transportation, wai manpower commission and WPB, all of them separately responsible for withdrawals and supplies of resources from or to the civilian economy. It is too much, Weiner told the committee, like a set of workers of different type engaged simultaneously in working on one structure, without a foreman and without a set of blueprints. : This statement wouldnt be so startling if it were not for the fact that the other essential requirements, namely, military and foreign, have powerful well-established agencies wfhich every day represent their particular interests at all of these supply agencies. ... If a Civilian Supply administration were set up, he believes, it would be responsible for determining where and when rationing should be inaugurated. He warns: There is occurring an alarming breakdown of distributive and service systems, that business of getting goods .to the stores and from the stores into the hands of people like you, the shopper, the customer, the consumer.

Remember, seeds are particularly valuable this year and must not be wasted.
