More Giant Bombers Are On Way! Special to Central 1'rcss Secretary of Vi'ar Hor.ry L- Stimson has given the first official word that ihe Russian winter offensive in the east aiul the Allied assaults ill the west arc in fact planned, co-ordin- ated offensives ag-ainst Germany.
Military observers for over a been unable to any olllcial confirmation that the three- power assault on Germany 1 is, in fact, a combined military operation. At the big three meeting in Teheran, in December of 19-13. it was announced that plans for coordinated attack on Hitler's fortress had been worked out. Since that date, however, there has been nn military activity to indicate that, this co-ordination extended lo the timing of military drives. Until barely a week ago, in fact, the view prevailed generally that Moscow was following the course, of prosecuting an independent military operation from the east.
Some Washington sources 'privately voiced deep concern over the failure of Stalin to launch his winter offensive during the recent breakthrough on the western front. AH doubt of the nature of the Allied operations seems to bo dispelled by Btimson'a remark at: his most recent press conference that "all these Soviet offensives reflect the constancy of the Russian effort, in co-operation with that of the United Slates.

While Boeing's Wichita, aircraft plant hns been the blue- ribbon bomber producer, officials are constantly keeping a wealhoi eye cocked at Omaha, Renton, and Marietta, plants to make sure that manpower shortages, lack of materials and labor turnover arc not permitted to hamper output. WHILE THE OFFICE OF PRICE ADMINISTRATION wishes devoutly that clothes rationing had been initiated long ago when there were ampin stocks on hand, the agency feels now that it is too Inte to start to ration clohing.
Despite stock shortages, therefore, civilians can expect, to buy without resorting to ration coupons. The Wai- Production Board and the Ollice of Price Administration are now concentrating on trying lo discover some moans of increasing civilian cloiho.s production and cutting down clothing costs which have risen through the drop in production of less expensive clothing-. To balance the discouragement caused by low clothing supplies Ibo hosiery industry predicts that, nylon stockings will be more plentiful and better in quality after the war than they were at the lime of Ponrl Harbor. Furbermoro, they insist that rayon hosiery will be more popular than before the war because of the development of better, high- tenacity rayon yarn which will bo turned into peace-time fuil-fasb- ioned hose. Silk stocking's are not expected to be very popular in the post-war period.
It is estimated that they jwill be worn by only about 20 per cent of the women in the United jstates after the downfall of the Axis. You're Telling Me!

This is where the faddist and enthusiast like Mr. Huxley is likely to do harm.
