Nelson states that even a boost of 30 per cent in the production of consumer needs still won't supjply much-needed washing machines and retrisrer- According to the W-P-B chief, the return of the prc-wnr standard of living cannot b'e expected until after Japan flies the white flag of surrender. However. Nelson docs furnish.a ray of hope for consumer market prospects. 'It appears that the \V-P-B chairman is winning increased congressional support, for his plan of gradual reconversion to peacetime production. If Nelson's plan is approved, civilian goods will slowly, but constantly, renppcar on the market.

Reason For Visit Of Churchill To Italy Is Revealed Rome, Aug. 16—'UP)—The reason for Prime Minister Churchill's visit to Italy—the cause of .much Kpeculution in the Italian prcas-r was revealed yesterday,. The British war leader made the trip to -speed troops in their Invasion of Southern Franco' and to confer with military officials. A press representative told reporters the prime minister 'may go to Vatican City for an nudicncc with the Pope. However, .the visit will not have the aim of discussing peace terms. A spokesman says: Prime Minister Churchill still .feels that 'the terms of peace arc unconditional surrender."

Says Blueberry Crop Could Be Greatly Increased "Child, You're Blueberry Pie •From' Ear to Ear" This is a kindly remonstrance often heard about mid-July through tha sections of New Eng-land where thrives the luscious and naturally iheavy bearing high bush blueberry. And bc- raiisc of the existence almost everywhere about Connecticut pastures and woodland .edges of the' necessary acid soils, and consequently the abundant presence of thobe blueberry shrubs, every parent and child he-re should be able to enooy blueberries and blueberry pic more freely,'frequently and inexpensively .than at present. At least each family in suburb or country-side could 80 'Improve the surroundings and release the existing blueberry shrubs to sunlight that . several times,the present quantity of this desirable fruit could be gathered, .What is.needed-Is first a search for the clumps of .high bush blueberry .bushes—about the abandoned pastures., old fields and woodland edges; then perhaps a little replanting and separated spacing of the individual specimens, the cutting out of every over-shading and competing hardwood Kipling bush and sprout, . a littla shrub trimming, stem" thinning, and perhaps some fertilizing, and other minor cure, for the higt> bush blueberry (Vaccinlum corymbosum) has the faculty., of living on for years, usually under difficult conditions of woodland shade, Whom these conditions are remedied the plants tire able to quickly recover, to flour- ih; and in a year or two they bear abundant fruit. I could name quite a, number of my forestry, friends who have profited by this recuperative quality of .the high bush blueberry shrub and who have rcccr.tly . become proud owners of small hoavy-fruit- ing patches, or. even of large bear- jng-. fields, now much more valuable tlian the .comparatively minor sections of woodland dispossess.
