PAGE TWO Extends Long Arm Of Censorship To Block All Contraband HAMILTON, Bermuda (UP) — Nearly 800 men and 'women, most of them from England's bombed cities, are erased daily in the constant surveillance of fill letters and parcel post sent between the United States and Europe. The British government is spending a large sum in this work. The rent of three hotels ns censorship headquarters is estimated to cost at least 5200,000 a year. . Thousands of letters pass through the hands of the ever watchful censors. The most- elaborate system of cataloguing and Indexing has been fput into operation so that everything that has been scrutinized in the post can be referred to in a moment's nothe. Tne censors Ere like doctors, with their hands on the pulse of communications between the United States and Europe. Valuable Data Gathered Details of what is found in the mails- is private to the British government, but it is certain that"the •maintenance costs for the work are insignificant to what information and tangible goods have been prevented from going through. A few amusing "finds." which have, been set aside in a spei-ial file, were disclosed recently ly C. R. WatkJus-Mence, the controller of censorship. - An order was intercepted from Rome .asking for the immediate delivery of 1,000 pairs of running shorts, which one censor observed was apparently in aniicipiUon of the Libyan campaign. At the same time, the censors opened another letter from Rome and found that the Italian navy was trying to order a number of cases of seasick remedy. The sight, of a check in nn envelope caused the lifting of eyebrows at first, but only for n moment. It was for S500, and had been sent by nn American to Adolf Hitler. Only one thing was out, of the ordinary—it was endorsed "for funeral expenses only." Watkins- Mence said the check was allowed to go on. Love Letters in Volume Thousands of love letters arc resdty the censors but one in particular was shown throughout every department. It .was a passionate letter from a Hungarian describing in detail his latest love affair. But the thing that interested the censors was a remark he wrote, "It doesn't matter what I say, those British censors aren't, hrman anyway." Another letter was addressed to "Santa Glaus, Greenland." It was from an American girl asking for a doll. A subscription was taken up among the women censors nnd a doll was sent to the girl. The censorship headquarters resembles an international clu:>. Each of the censors speaks at least two languages, and most of them have at least four cr five at their command, A letter written in the Eskimo language was given a thorough going over by someone with a fluent knowledge of that tongue.. Registered Mail Stored The most unusual feature of the censorship wcrk is that registered mail, war or no war, receives par- Ocular attention and must be accounted for after the war, Registered letters may be opened and indefinitely delayed, but when the war is over every one of them must be sent to the addressed persons A large room has been set asicJe for the storage of this class^ of BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.)

Health Giving Vitamins Being Produced To Play Part In Defense NEW YORK. <UP)_Relatively new drugs and synthetic vitamins iare in production to make Amer- I icau armed forces the healthiest of ] any in the world, according to the scientists. j Principal among these. Lhe experts assert, is the sulpha family of drugs— sulphanilamide, sulpha- pyridine, and sulphathiazole. According to A. C. BoyJston, president of Mallin:krodt Chemical Works .these drugs orally administered have been- .spectacularly successful 'in the treatment of pneumonia. They also are considered imperative for the treatment of infections and are to be a. valuable addition to the soldiers' kits. Another invaluable addition to' the drug group is afabrfne, which takes the place of quinine, now aiin.uiu to o^ai i. Next In importance are Lhe health-giving vitamins, especially those which are contained in wheat before it is refined. Tne refining process eliminates part of the vitamin content and hence the problem is to enrich the refined flour with the lost vitamin.

Walker, president. Walker descnoes his product solvamin, as a rich .source of ribo- Jlavm, one of the principal factors of the vitamin B compiex. Puouc interest in this .vitamin has been .stimulated recently witn a - nounccment that the British mill- ud ! cts * ast becaus <= tary authorities are requiring that bread baked with white flour and other rations be fortified with vita- • rnins- ,. The ,Y: s - arm y recently ordered the addition ol that part of tne vitamin B complex, known as vitamin Bl, to certain foods now b-in- purchased for the armed forces, and intensive consideration is being given in many quarters to restoration of ribojavin to white flour. Richer Flour Milled Donald D. Davis, president ol General Mills, Inc., the country's largest producers of flour, accounced a short time ago that his company is producing flour enriched witn vitamins and minerals to meet national , defense food problems Riboflavin is considered necessary for proper body building, for the prevention of many types of skin diseases and for the prevention of lesions of the mouth, gums, and eyes. The U. S. Bureau of Home Economics states that the diet of more than 45,000,000 people in the U 3 is lacking in essential food elements,' and the present movement toward the restoration of vitamins to staple foods from which they have been removed in processing, is considered to b9 an important step in the direction of improving the diet and health of a large part of our population- ! Memphian Will Be Chef At Hotel Noble Wallace Berryhill of Memphis will be connected with Hotel Nobia here as chef, it was announced today by Jessee Stltt, manager. Mr. and Mrs. Berryhill have already moved here and-he has assumed his duties. For many years Mr. Berryhill FORT BLISS, Tex. fUP)—Thish a mechanized age, and the army is utilizing its share of machine- transportation and power, but motor vehicles never will knock out the tough army mule. That's the consensus of military .strategists at Port Bliss. America's lariest, cavalry post. Historians at the fort who have done research work on the subject, ?ay the mule started with the army. They base their prediction'thai the mule never will be entirely supplanted by motor transportation and power on the proved fact that- the animal is at its best in rough going. They point cut that big trucks can't get through heavy mud, climb trackless mountains or go through jungles. The mule can. Capt. Richard E. Am i"i. who j* serving his 2lsL year in the army and who now commands the Fort Bliss mule pack tram—the only one In America—insists that the mule represents much of the color and served as chef for several of the leading hotels and hospitals of Memphis. WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 1941 romance of the army. Capt. Arnold's mule pack train —Troop E—includes 303 animals, 73 men and two officers, divided into four platoons. He and other veterans like to tell of the feats of sturdy mules in the World War and of the times they carried ammunition through to the front in France when trucks were mired in the mud or in shell holes.
