FDR Wilt Present Medal To Hero, Who Can See Again Phocnixvillc, Penn., July 2D— (UP)— Sergeant Forrest L. Vosler was blind when congress awarded him the medal.of honor. . • But he'll be able to sec when President Roosevelt places on his chest the medal—highest honor this nation bestows to its lighting men. After six painstaking months of work, doctors have restored the sight of onc eye of the 20-year-old Livonia. New York, sergeant. "God sure was good to me," he' says. Vosler was awarded the medal of honor for extreme heroism' on a Flying Fortress bombing raid on Bremen. But he thinks anyone would have done what he did. He says he can't understand why -congress should give him the medal. lie was olindcd and partly par- alysed durinfr the raid, and still has a sreel fragment in his chest. With his oyes gouged by shell fragments, both legs paralysed, and piocos of steel in his chest and hand, Vosler obeyed orders to send an SOS and he kept on sending it. When the bomber started falling lie begged his buddies to please throw him overboard to lighten the ship. They refused. And when the bomber finally crashed, and settled on the waves, Vosler 'crawled out on the wing and rescued an even more battered gunner who slipped into the water. He hold him up till help 'came in tho form of a P-t boat. At n. ^hospital, in England, his sigh: went from bad to worse until he was totally blind. They sent him home, where doctors removed one eye, so that the other could recover. ..-'.- Patriots On Way To Aid Civilians : w*.$?m GI-s In Pacific Bet $2,000 On Ball Game Two Of Three; Stassen In Capital Have Been Found Greenville, Maine', July 29—(UP)' —Two of three- planes misnlng in the woods north of Mooschcad L'akc have 'been- located.: -Throe men were Jn till e'.plane's-:arid were reported as uninjured.' :*••• ^Searchers atill were' looking for a,'third plane from-a-flight of nine that wus bound from a New Brunswick ah- base 'to Dayton, Ohio.

MEN'S DIAMOND KING Over ii Ciirut In tfl/e *OKA.OO Special (Tax Incl) 250' S CHNEER C cftfoir jEwrirRs *^ An Advanced Allied Base in the Southwest Pacific (UP)—Whether he's in Brooklyn or New Guinea your GI is a sportsman ready to back his favorite on the diamond with cold cash. Cpl. C. J. Papara, former Rhinu- lyndiir, Wis,. newspaperman now with the Sth special service company, wrote the United Press in a dispatch from the Pacillc battle zone that mo re than $2,000 changed hands in bets on a si game. At prevailing rates ot' Army pay, this was a fairly tidy sum, in Pa para's opinion. "At anothe'r game," he said, "the gamblers hired a line hurlcr from another organisation to pitch for their nine, paying him $25 to win and guaranteeing him at least $5 even if he lost. At least a half- do/.en softball loops arc now in operation in nil parts of tho island, each with eight teams. League names are patterned after those in tho States—American, National. Piedmont, and Wixie, among others. "Tho playing fields, as good as the average diamonds in the states, are dragged daily," Papara reported. "A truck, pulling heavy pieces of lumber with several soldiers riding thorn for added weight, is employed regularly for this task. Most of the gloves, balls, and bats are furnished by special service units or special service oll'lcers hi various units." ball Papara also reported that volleyball, basketball, baseball, horseshoe pitching, ping-pong, touch football, and badminton also were much in vogue at the base and that an estimated CO per cent o! he personnel participated in some sort of recreation along this line. Army, Nfivy and Marine units are stern rivals for supremacy in sports, he said.

(UP)—Illinois ers realized S-12,00 a ton on hemp, and h:id a yield-of 2.0 tons an acre in 19-13. according to R. H. Wileox, associate professor of agricultural economics in ulio University of Illi-. nois' College of Agriculture.. Cost tit' production a nd' dcliveiy was .•SSl.l'j a ton, Prof. Wilcox said, which wa; about double the- pro- d'U'.'-ttor, cost of corn, but ths price for hemp made i't a profitable crop. Hemp production required 19 man hours ;m acre, about 10-hours .more than for corn production. Tractor time averaged about tha same, Ci 1-2 hours an acre. ' _ The cost averages were determined from fig-uro.s re turned frorn .112 farms sclaetcd at random In the Illinois hemp producing area. The acre cost of S5ri.02 inrluded $23,21. for plowing, prcpa.ring tho s;cudhcd. seed and sowing cost; XI0.80 for cutting, -turning,- binding and shocking; and $B.29 for loading and- delivcl-ing. Seed cost the growers $12.02 an aero, Machines, were obtained on a rental basis through tlic hemp mills at a cost o:' $5 an acre. Hemp growing was new to Illinois farmers. Siie- -college reported. Tlic request for hemp production came originally -when North Africa was in the hands of the encrny and , fiber was unavailable- from that area and from areas farther cast. Yank Air Group Fares Healthy In Aussie Bush 1J.V FRANCIS L. McCAJlTIIY United l'n:H» War Correspondent Northwestern Arena, Southwest Pacific (UP)—American i airmen'of air group "X," who live in pyramidal tents on the edge of airfields hacked out of the Australian Bush, are enjoying better health on the whole than they did at home, Flight Surgeon Maj. Lcvon K. G'arron" of (23!>5 Jones St.) San Francisco, reported here. Flying fatigue is "Doc" Gnrron's biggest: problem to date. Because personnel of the group fly some of the "war's longest ovcrwater missions—-their average strike lasts from -10 to 1!3 hours—they -begin to show signs of strain after 100 hours of combat flying, he believes. A week's leave for every three months of combat flying eases pilots' mental strain, but. "Doc" doesn't think it should end there. He believes instead in a "rest cure" policy in three phases. Big City First The rest cure starts with a week's .leave in a big city, where flying crews can let oil steam. Then comes another week of rest in quiet-surroundings with plenty of fresh air and fresh eggs, butter and-, milk. After this phase comes the third when the crews arc gradually "rebrokcn" into combat flight. With the rest cure plus the cur- runt replacement policy for combat personnel, problems of flight fatigue in Group "X" have cased up recently. Garran said. ' Tomography of this American camp area, deep in the heart of Australia's wilderness, is generally flat. Tents nestle "m heavily-wooded bivouac areas among low. rolling- hills. Humidity JM 'at a minimum during- warm days and cool nights. Canifi Sunil-iition Gonif Good sanitation prevails throughout the camp. There are no fly or |. mosquito breeding sites of a.~ny' im. parlance. The water supply for the camp is through a deep-bore well. Mousing conditions arc generally excellent. All buildings arc semi-permanent construction with concrete floors, and tin sides and roofs. Buildings are screened where possible. Very little dysentery of fungus Only .malaria to appear in this infection has occurred. This was believed duo to careful supervision of the area and personal sanitation. •Only malaria to appear in this area came : -several months ago after several of the heavy bomber crews were operating from New Guinea bass for a few 'weeks.
