Sliall t.K'V keep on with a war jub paying a lot i>l' inoiiL-y, or shall llit.-y quit and go back tu sc'liuul '! It is hard to answer the question in general .If the yotigstor is; already part way through high school, is saving money for college, if Ju. 1 knows the job will ouil soon and is prepared in mind to go straight back to complete his education wlicii it dous, it may be nil right to ket-p on for a few months more. But if Uiii boy or girl thinks [hero's no uso in school when compared with the fat pay envelope, does not realize what will happen to him a I'esv years from now—he'd bett'.T stop that job quick and' go back to school to learn some things be ought to know. For war jobs are fleeting. After them, for the extra workers, such as these young people and many women, idleness looms. No job, no pay. no training for the future.- It's a sail outlook. U'lten there's a great, manpower shortage, a.s in war, extras are needed. When the men conic home, those untrained young people, now gro.wn older, must compete in a rnva- ket of .skilled workmen.

The company and its employes have made a splendid record in the production of preeisiuii instruments that have contributed in very large measure to the nation's war effort. They are deserving of the highest "praise. We hope their cele- bratio.i of the notable event will be the biggest kind of a success. ROBOMBS AVhy Jtre robombs so hard to destroy nt the source.' Congressman Kohert, L. F. Sikes of Klor'ula. member of the .House Military Affairs, Committee, who lias been giving much attention to the flying bombs, says it is because their "installations are small, built of thick concrete and widely scattered. They present a very small target and one which is hard, to hit from the air." Their range, which is now 150 miles, may be stepped up to 4f>0, which would enable the Nii/.is to continue bombing Great Britain even if they should lose complete control of the coast. Yet, though they may harass civilians, they effective against, military objectives only by chance, and cannot., says Congressman Sikes, change the outcome of tlie war. . Sooner or later the United Nations will master this inenaee. just as they liave done with the submarine and magnetic mine. They may show the Nazis a few new weapons of their own.-In the Pacific they are already using one which is verv effective. So we nre going to Paris! And when we get it, what will we do with it? > 20 Years Ago Mr. and Mrs. Max Melzcr, and Mr. and Mts. Harry Carleton, und -son Henry, of Beacon Falls, visited in Johnstown. N.

There's gonna be a lot of good entertainment at the annual family outing of the U. S. Rubber Co. Sunday — plenty of athletics, singing and dancing, and eating. We think eating is a pleasure, and entertainment is a pleasure, hence they are both the.same thing, so we include it in that category.

When Lily and I left tho United States to give a. series of concerts for the GIs or the Persian. Gulf Command. v,-e were as thrilled and excited as mo«t people would be at the pi'ospect of visiting the Near East and of coming face to face with the color, the adventure and the mystery of its fabled cities and towns. But now that we have lived through some of the richest and most provocative experiences of travel, \ve know that some of the story-toilers wore only amateurs. To Form a GI Synipliony Orchestra Palpably, it is impossible for us to paint a day-by-duy picture of the journey which took us to Cairo, Teheran, Tvazvin and inter to the Italian-North African theatre of war. So, as Lily suggests, we shall start in the middle of things, jump all over the lot arid try to detail some of the highlights. Lily, incidentally, insists (like a modest wife should) that I have the floor first. So I hereby trot out what I consider a very special highlight. I was In Teheran to form a GI Symphony-Popular O r ch fl s t r a, Word of my plan spread around the camps like wilclllre, or.ce Commanding General Connolly had offered his fullest cooperation. The boys—all amateurs but one—were given special Curloughs and they cnme from their camps in the form anil expressed his appreciation of the program. Later all our distinguished quests came b.iclist.ige. Were the GI's thrilled.' incidentally, my wife and 1 yave a short tallc in Russian at the concert and our hi^h-i'anliing of- llcer £-uesls gave us a big- hand. I'd like to interpose here a brief description of this country so you will gut an idea of what some of. our GIfi .ire enduring. Thi? country is primitive with the exception of Teheran anU even thut capital has no water or sou-aye system. It has a system oC ditches with running water which are used for all purposes. Sccnictilly, it reminded mn of Ari/ona (a remark J mndc on arrival and later learned that President Roosevelt had also said this). Pi-ices are sky hiK-h. I really saw .1 sccor.d-h.ind Bcick priced at $30,000. Most people are desperately poor and bread is their main diet. Slipper with ttu' Koynl Family It was on our return to Teheran thru we pave our Command Performance for tho Shah at the Summer Palace. Afterward we had supper with the'.Royal Family. The SShah RIIVO us each a lovely (."ifl—a stunning pair of old Persian, car-rinjfs for myself and a beautiful. Ispahan ru;,' for Andre. I. had been presented with many lovely thinj;s cluririff our tour but this was Andre's Ilrst and while he hadn't exactly wept, he had been -toying- with the idea of wearing- ono of my evening- gowns as a sr.are, so to speak. The Shah's obvious familiarity wjih the details of my career was a very pleasant surprise. Nalural- '.y. being a woman. I was flattered that I wasn't just another singer who happened along.

It is .a former public hath and more than SJO.OOO has been .spent in converting it into a sort of canine Waldorf-Astoria. ^^^ There are private kenr.ttls, intern bathrooms, uniformed attendants' and just otoout everything that a do;j-—if it were a human being — would consider the height of luxury. A couple of days ago Trixie, a. four-year-old dog of mixed ancestry, took advantage of rvr. 1 open ! door in her modest Bronx flat and decided to enjoy tho sunshine an.-! the delicious cooking odors o'f Eton But her adventure was brief. A (log- catcher caught up with her unU took her to the dog hoiel. .sir.c tlicre is a 1-aw that all dogs run ning loose in the Bronx mti^'t 1) confined for six months a:u \witchod for rabies.

In its llnal form, this unique orchestra was composed of 50 GI's, with 16 violins and with the double buss turning out to bo a gentleman who had once played in the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra. We played in camps down on tho Persian Gulf and at camps in the very heart of the Iranian desert. Travel was tough on all of us, but, none took it better than petite Lily, whose pood spirits and hif;h humor always get her through tho meanest situations. And when I say moan, I'm referring to dust storms which were more than brutal. Thanks again to Major General Connolly, men who wore posted at outlying stations were. given time off from their duties to make the trip and to attend our concerts, so that wherever we went, our performances were "sell-outs." Hero Defender of Leninjtnul an Honored Guest One; of the Big- Events in our tour was the concert we gave at Kazvin. General Connolly honored us by coming down with several of his aides and we were sijr- nally honored by General makcvitch, the defender of Leningrad, and several other Russian. officers. After the concert the Russian genera] came to the plat- ludu of gossip made me feel a bit homesick. The Shah is only 25 years old and speaks French beautifully. He told Andre and me that he studies English by listening to the radio and he also informed us that he listens to Andre's music on the air and on records. The supper party at the Palace WHS orio of those feasts you read about in books—the tables were laden with the finest of foods and the appointments were as sumptuous and glittering as a 'fairyland setting . Incidentally, the two Royal Highnesses I mentioned are sisters of the Shah and one of them is his twin. Tho following day Andre and I visited the collection ot jewels in the Government Bank and this wa.s truly an amazing experience. or a palace or an apartment or a hovel. It is h-is master's heart, his love, his presence, his scent. Sometimes I wonder why a dog- —urjschooled. uncultured, uncivilized, unable to speak or understand tjhc spoken word— hns so much of what the 'human race is trying so hnrd to acquire. So many things for which we fight and hope ;ubotit. which we orote -ind write as tilings of a distant civilization, are inherent and instinctive ciua'.itics in" a plain, ugly, dumb, lovable mutt. Doesn't it m.'.ikc you ashamed of yourself sometimes, when you aro planning- to do something petty or mean, ar*l then your dog puts its wet no/.zle into your hand, looks up at you and says, without a word, "You perfect being-, I adore you"?

Grand Concert Attended by Diplomats from 30 Nations While still in Teheran we played another Grand Concert. This was attended by diplomatic representatives oC thirty nations. Our program contained much American music and a number of Red Army songs. The response was, as • we i say back home, terrific. At a later date we. gave two addilional con- certs—ono at the Russian and another at the British Embassy.
