JLYTOEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Mussed Up Musso's Men in East Africa Is T System Court Over For Slums Children From Dockside MANGOTSPIELD, Eng. (UP) _ Little children from London who have never seen day- i light until the roofs over their heads are bombed off and they are "blitzed" out of London into the country, are learning to talk about birds of bombers at Sy.ston Court. There they sleep in i\v rooms which Henry VII! u; years ago They were built' in his father's reign for the entmam- ment of princes and nobles - now they house babies and toddlers from the worst of the capiial's deskside slums. Another historic home for the children is to be acquired and will be called the Sir Archibald Wavell Nursery, while Dauncey Park in Wiltshire, where most" of Queen Amies ill-fated children were .born is to be a maternity home. Policy May Be Permanent In all these houses, which are part of a scheme that may be kept going after the war. underprivileged people will find health as they are now. Here axe some of the children who, at Syston Court, are 'benefiting from the work of the sponsors of the scheme, the Anglo-American Relief Fund for London Children and Mothers. ELsie and Anne, twins of 5 months, who never saw sunlight before they came to the mansion. Six-months old Brian who had spent the whole part of his short life in the cellar of a public house. Iris. 2, who had remained below ground for six weeks. John, aged 19 months, had remained r oiled- up in the comer for weeks. The older children there have seen terrible sights- for their yo-mg eyes. Mary. 5, saw her brother killed •beside her, while Dick saw a bomb demolish a house in which two of his playmates were having tea. Show Strain of Ordeal "When they came here . they looked worried and nervous as if the whole weight of the ' worlds sorrow were on their shoulders" said American-born Lady Guns ton wife of Sir Derrick Gunston, M.' P., and chairman of the Relief Fund. 'Their skin was yellow and wrinkled, and there were bags under. -theui.jeyes. Some were given up by the doctors, who said they had only a few more weeks to live. What troubles me Ls that recent arrivals seem j in worse condition physically and ' mentally than the earlier ones. | All those remaining should be i got away at once!" j The children are cared for by nursery school teachers and imi- ' formed nurses, and all have re- i sponded to the quiet and cleanli- • ness of the house and •gardens.

That's partly because of internal />/-<><r- s«res. which also have so much to do with Buick's extra FIRF.IWI.I. power. Rubber threads inside a golf ball are packed tight, highly compressed. When flattened against a hard object, like a sidewalk, they come back harder, with more push, and so the ball bounces higher. A similar thing happens inside a Buick FIRHBAI.I. straight-eight cylinder. Fuel compression pressures arc higher here than in any other standard-production automobile engine. So when the spark jumps in the tightly- packed, fuel-fat ball of gas-mixture at the top of the stroke - the Buick piston goes rushing down with more push, more shove, wore power than the same amount of fuel gives up elsewhere. Result: every Buick engine travels farther per gallon (his year than the same-size engines did last year, while Compound Carburetion* with Buick FFKKKAU. design gives as much as 10% to 15% more miles per gallon.
