firican War Dads President Shamrock Organization ?A? i, ^ Feb. 12 rSepecial)— f& when Shfen dare .„ trig, dare to tackle ftever beett done be- ;/wn'en'lhe world is aflame hatred, selfishness and greed, & day in which we should be- tfft t& look some things square in 1 Ifife face," declared Arch Stafford, '- If&tidnal president of American War *"**%' s& he stroke to the local chap , arfil feotariahs, at a luncheon Jmdfty at 12 o'clock noon, at the Methodist church. Rake George, president of the local chapter of American War Dads, presided, ' and the speaker was introduced by J. B. Clark. "When World War I was fought, we sent our boys to the battle lines and they brought victory, fought a ivaf to end all wars. How stupid we wer'e to believe that. Men who saw 'their buddies shot, left long rows of white crosses over there after v^orld War I. knew there would be Wndthfer war. I pay tribute to those riflen' who tried to warn us that war Wdtild come again." "'twenty-five years went by and a, far; greater army, navy and marine corps went out to far-filing places, many of which we had never heard. Back home they are coming' in countless numbers, and I W~aht to remind you today, that for tfte' Gold Star mothers and fathers. this war will never end," emphasized the distinguished speaker. "We have lived in luxury while these American kids have flown planes around the world, lived in foxholes, and brought victory to our' nation. What arc we going to do? Sit idlv by and watch it happen again? As I have gone the l,ength and breadth of this nation, ^ have found complacency seeping into our thinking. We must face facts. 'Our American boys, whether soldier, sailor or marine, arc entitled ,tq fair treatment," stressed Stafford, and. I am pledging myself as a War ipjld to do down the road together with the Veterans of Foreign' Wars and the' American Legion, who did a magnificent job. We cannot side- St% 'the issue, and I challenge you i£s" 'red-blooded Americans, not to let these toys down— if we do Gocl pity America.' The able speaker discussed the veterans hospitals and the GI Bill of Rights at length. Stafford, who is a teacher of a men's Bible class in Omaha, Neb., Struck a deeply religious note in closing as he admonished the group , ^^ . -.., * --1- to bow to* their knees and pray for our world leaders today. "I would like to lay on the bottom of your hearts, that Christ came into a world that was upside down. We were made in God's image, His heirs, and joint heirs with His Son. That p?aces human life on a mighty high plane. These returning boys are human being, and let us stand shoulder to shoulder to give them a square deal. "Peace is a long way off. Let us raise our- voices and stand together to correct the evils in ths war-torn world today, until there is peoce for these 15 million fellows who fought to keep America, American."

Veleraiis Gaiii Nearly 2,000 veicran placements were made in the federal service within ' the State of Texas during last December, accordm? to Paul H. Figg, director of the 14th U. S. civil service region. including placements of wives of disabled veterans and widows of veterans who are entitled to preference—made throughout the nation during December, 1945—1,871 were made in Texas. The nationwide placement figure is the largest total renorted to date. The increase ever ether months is due in part to the large number of temporary placements made. A. tola! of 285.172 veteran placements were made during the year 1945, of whiich 97.4 per cent were made in federnl field establishments outside the District of Columbia. The total since January, 1943 is 564,000. Veteran placements in the District of Columbia rose to 1,446 during December. By stales, New York assumed thn lead with 14,390 placements; California was next with fi.nsi; Massachusetts with 5,300; New Jerwv with 2,316: and' the State of Washington with 2.214. By agencies, the post office department look the lead for the first time with the war department, navy department, veterans' administration, and l.he treasury department following in the order named. Aporoximatelv 4 per cent of all ve.erans placed in field establishments were reported as physically impaired, while 18.743 former federal employees were restored to positions in the federal service after military service in accordance with provisions of the selective service and training act during November.

' That's like 'saying a battle is horrible. You oan't visualize cither until you've been there. Kilgorc is fantastic. Derricks, bristle all over -,own like quills on ,1 porcupine's back. But that's meaningless, too. Pew have been porcupines. Close your eyes and picture your own town.'Take your home first. If you were in Kilgore, you'd have a derrick in the front yard, another in the backyard. You'd have your wash line tied to your back porch and the derrick. If you ran a service station, you'd br selling gasoline out front—and pumping oil from a well in the little back lot. The bank, itself, is surrounded by derricks. So"is the hospital. So is the fire department. So is your old man. Group 500 wells within the confines of a small nity and you've got like :i hairbrush, with IHUc stores and homes wedged in I between the bristles. When we first hit. town, we were awed bv it .ill.. Further, we were I aim id to light a cigarette for fear' of sending the whole works up in a disastrous blaze. But residents of. Kilgore take it all for granted. They smoke, and build fires, and move around quite casually. Once they had a big oil well fire in midtown. That was just before the war.'But the very efficient fire department put it out promntlv. Kilgore is as different from an average town as one can imagine.

Airline officials were notified that the office of defense transportation on that date will lift its order setting aside 70 per cent of all eastbound transcontinental atrplane space for returning servicemen; Army air travel priorities were removed October 15, 1945. Since the army and navy began taking over space on United's eastbound flights from Pacific ,coast ports to speed servicemen home, it ?s estimated that by February 15 at least 10,000 ihen will have been transported on the company's Mainliners to Atlantic seaboard destinations. With reservations again being accepted on a prewar basis, Untied expects the civilian air travel rush , 9 derricks. Te By GKACIK ALLEN My goodness, what aVen't governments up to now!

Rolfe, professor of afzhitectiire at the University of "feitas, appears in the February issue of (Country Gentlemen. A farm boy himself. Mr. Rolfe knows what it takes to make a comfortable "homo on the range" and Ms drawings dovetail utility with charm. ld?al for the economy of any family, the house is planned by having only one room, which can be expanded to three. The utility area provides for laundry, sewing, canntg, home freezing and food preparation. The flexibility of the plan makes heating possible by either oil or gas, and the discomfort of summer is overcome by rtttic fans. living room and bedrooms open out on a garden, which is well removed from the dust of the driveway. A large service porch can be used for a variety of purposes, from barbecues to ping pong matches. Even the fireplace in the living room has a double function, featuring a cupboard above for storage. Knowing the demands of a family of four or five, Mr. Rolfe has allowed for ample closet space throughout the house. Other special attractions in this sprawling, inany-windowed ranch home whbh will appeal to the housewife are the washroom in the garage for the men to clean up in before entering the house, and the clever arrangement to by-pass traffic to the barns and corals by means of an outer drive. Further sympathy for the feminine soul is revealed In the location of the kitchen and utility room to permit the housewife to enjoy a pleasant view of the grounds and see what's going on. .*.
