This country, Mr. Pt-woy says, has Ln'iIt a synthetic rubber industry which .in the three months ended .June M turned out synthetics at the rate- of S.'5b',()0(J long tons a year—approximately the goal set liy the Baruch ntbber survey committee nearly two years ago.

Rubber Company, is playing a wry important part in the nation's war effort and is doing a remarkably fino-joh. Mr. .Dcwey says the rubber program ''has been carried to a point- where with reasonable manufacturing efficiency, only the failure of those responsible to supply adequate manpower, or essential components other than rubber, can result in a shortage of essential rubber goods of high quality." Having satisfactorily accomplished Ins task', he believes it is only right and proper that he should resign. He is entitled to a vote of thank's from the government he has so efficiently and faithful Iv served. DO YOU REMEMBER?

TUIEn—AND FAII-ED (By John Kdsriir lloovor, Ml rector Federal Bureau of UivrtNtlKii- «lon, United State* Department of .IlMllCC.) Nazis in America have been ak- ing a drubbing like the Niu:i» facing the Yanks in Normandy, the British at Caen, and the Russians in their victorious sweep through Poland. The. much-vaunted methodical planning and scheming of the Nazis have contributed to their own downfall. They tried, but failed, to swing their Fifth Column into action in America. H suffered setbacks before Pearl Harbor, but its back was broken once we were freed of peacetime restraints. Since Pearl Harbor, over 15,750 suspected Fifth Columnisls have been arrested. The mere dangerous were interned, others paroled, and others released when it was certain they would do no harm. The German High Command ad•nil^ed the ineffectiveness of their Fifth Column when they dispatch-: ed the eight saboteurs to America •jy submarine two years ago. We have learned that other .saboteurs were trained to take their places, ut so far, they have not put in their appearance. the lant ^estlgo of Nazin m j, o<J by our Armed Forces America, combatting and destruction directed .'jjj a porfoct tho exports in , ?

They mean, for the Allies, hou'ever, that if every man on the fiyhting fronts, and every man, woman and child on the home front, will push hard now and put the most intense pressure possible- on the c-ni-my, the war can be shortened by weeks, perhaps by months. It's not a timo for slacking but for pouring all energies, taking every advantage, of tlio crack. Our men on the I'ighting fronts can be depended upon to continue thuir powerful attacks on the enemy. They are. said to be trying hard to bring about the defeat of the- Nazis by Christmas. To do so they will need all the support we at .home can give them. It's our duty to see that they get it. NAZI ROCKETS German spokesmen have explained that they .ire using their rocket or "robot." bombs for reasons of "prestige." That is an odd way to express. it. People of the Allied nations cannot see much distinction in a mode of war- Care which is so cruel to its victims, maiming and mangling so terribly those who «ro not .killed.

Remember all 1:1 le young American pacifists who, three or four years ago, were never going to fight for anybody or anything?

The Barometer Blues • THESE ARE tbc days that tr; fat mtjr.'s souls.. Never under estimate what external factors an doing to your health, your feeling of wellbcing, your inspiration your working ability. Maybe you are a leptasome, as the scientists say. Jr. other words, do you have barometer blues? In .Italy when the hot sirocco wind blows .over the country the parched African mainland, ihe number of crimes of violence rise. And the prevalence of such weather conditions is actually used as 0. defense in murder 'trials. It temporarily "takes away ihe '. mind so ihe people say. In my native land of the middle west between the Alicghanies and tho Rockies in Lho mor.ths-'of July, August and September we have a continuous sirocco sot of conditions. Itviitition.s lo Hot Weather There are, of course, all kinds of poopio and some claim t.o like hot weather. They say thoy thrive on it and do their best work in the summed. Personally, I can only look at them with doubt and desp.'iir. I am a cold weather man mysO'I!'. I can plan work when the cold winds blow and dream that I may some day complete my great opus on diagnosis. But from May to October in the beautiful land of Missouri .-it is quite: .1 job lo gel me to drag myself to tho supper table, let alone anything else, "Any country," as Jim L,nnc, of Kansas, once said, ''which is good for corn is bad for human beings." It has been supposed that the thyroid gland has something to do with these' inclicidual differences. Wo know that the thyroid is the energy regulator of the body. The person with an overaclivc thyroid always warm, throws the bedclothes off in . cold weather and oerspires on New Year's Day. while the low thyroid secrotor.. is ilways chilly, the extreme -exam)le being the myxoedema .patient who wears flannal underwear in July. But above such personal.' variations tho mass of mankind reacts more or less the same to weather changes, Huntington, one-.-of the earliest students of tho subject ..of, weather,. made a. 'Study-of •'several, thousand mill operatives in New England and in the- Southerns States.'.and also of 1,700 students at Annapolis and West Point. His measurement of efficiency was productiveness and he found that I a maximum temperature of-'C8 F. and a minimum of 38 F. Is the most favorable for tho maximum,.effort. Above and below those-'-points; (outside temperature) production dropped. '.'Humidity, wind 1 .move-' ment and especially temperature changeablencss from day to .day* were 1 also factors. '""'•. Sonsihlo Summer Clothing While our comfort or discomfort, in hot weather depends upon those four factors—temperature, humidity, barometric pressure and air movement—we have defonse'irtech- anism against only one of them—• temperature.

Strangle Hold On Japanese Shipping De GauUe's Washington Trip Seen Highly Successful One Special to Central Prcns WASHINGTON—Full effect of the American capture of Saipan in the Marianas may not be noticeable for months, but its main value is a. base from which the United States can tighten" its blockade around the Japanese mainland. 1-Lecbnnais.saricc planes can cover the Pacillc as far as Japanese waters and within reach of the Philip- .pi'iies, and'submarines will be able to'increase their attacks on shipping because they will have a much shorter distance to travel than they did when Midway was llin nearest American base to Japan. Japan already is beginning to feel the lack of shipping lo move raw maioria.Ls from the south to the homeland and to move war supplies and men to the outlying bases. Now United States forces in '.he Marianas aiv astrido the direct route over which JVipan used lo ferry planes and ship-borne supplies southward. The new pinch on Japan's supply lines will be imposed gradually at first until supplies in large quantities turn Saipnn into a major, air and sea base. Saipan .is considered by * some naval experts as the key to'dom- nation of most of the Pacific between Truk 'and the Philippines. The once-mighty Bonin islands, COO miles from Tokyo, will be virtually useless as a base to the Japs as soon as American bombers begin o shuttle from Saipnn on their cthal runs. Some Japanese shipping still m.iy lip througli the blockade, but now here is little hope for the enemy of sending planes to reinforce his lying .fields southeast and south- vest of Saipan. pictured.
