"Fire prevention, to be effective, must ever be on the ulort to detect these hazards. Science is just as effective In providing- cures for dangers as developing processes which produce the h;!7.ards: As an example, life and property safety is greater today in the manufacture and use of explosives than it was when only black powder was made. This has been brought about through the knowledge on the part of the producers that education In regard to hazards was a duty owed to employes and the public, and that it was a true economy to spend money to provide adequate protective facilities, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," literary landmark tjy Pearl Buck, who knows China and Chinese people as very few Americans do.

Russians Are Approaching Warsaw From 2 Directions (By' I)nltcd rross) The Russians are now approaching Win-saw from two directions. The first Ukrainian army has bypassed the German stronghold of Radom in a lightning advance up the west bank of'the Vistula rivcru. The strong .forces of Mnrshiil Konev crossed ^the Vistula on n 73- mile front to drive within less than CO miles of the Polish Capital. The .Russians may , now stage a coordinated assault from both the east and the south. The Germans are faced with, a. grave,problem in defense. If ' Warsaw's southern flank Is to be defended, the forces defending the pastern flank must be weakened.' 1 While decisive battle for Warsaw .„ in the making, .Russian troops to the north may be crossing from Lithuania into East Prussia, If the border crossing is underway.'vhcn the eastern front has moved into :hc German homeland. And there ,s reason to believe that Russian soldiers are marching across German soil, Dispatches from Stockholm say Berlin admits that Nazi troops along the East Prussian border are fulling back, Moscow does not olll- cially claim the invasion of the Third Reich But the latest Soviet communique said Russian forces were dug in right on the Prussian border. On the northern end of the front, the Germans are launchihg'dcsper- ate attack. Two wedges have been driven into Russian lines around the lialtic. The Germans aro trying to save the 30 divisions trapped against the Valtic sea. And in the crucial hour, Germany may be losing an ally. An American radio correspondent of N-B-C) reports from Ankara that Bulgaria is talking peace. He says that Bulgarian representatives arc discussing peace with British and American representatives.
