By CHARLKS HULL United .Press StsilF Correspondent St. Louis. Mo. CUP)—Tho war with Japan lias vortually •' halted the smuggling of opium into .the United States and forced thousands of narcotic addicts to tako the cure—whether they want to or not. John M Tulley,. head or the St. Louis bureau of the Treasury Department's narcotic division, re- ve;iloil today that-wartime conditions have greatly reduced the number of., drug addicts because of their inability to obtain contraband drugs. Ho predicted that it' the war with Japan continues another year, drug addiction in tho United States in ay be completely wiped out. Tulley reported that there are less than 00 of what he called "non-ineclica! users of narcotic drugs" in tho eastern federal district of Missour as compared to more than 500 in 1M1 before the Pearl Harbor attack. Importation of opium, the basic property of practically all habit- forming drugs," Tullry explained, "is s-o restricted today that the supply is barely adequate to meet the demand for legitimate users of drugs. Strict Supervision "There are only three firms in the United States that process opium and the Treasury Department is ab!e to keep the strictest supervision over tho distribution of opium drugs from these manufacturers through retail source to the ultimate consumer. "The great amount of narcotic used by the addict was .smuggle Into the country and was not pro cosset! by these three firms.

Suddenly, above the rumble of the traffic of war, a buple .blew "Colors." Men and machines halted to itcdgc allegiance as a tiny" fluff wa« foisted to a splintered staff in front of the Governor's House.

(UP)— "Chief Puppy Officer" Rybolt, canine mascot at the Indianapolis armory, turned a pastime of chus- ing 'sailors into a career. ; Today the small brown dog with the uncertain pedigree is a familiar sight as he shuffles along with some semblance ot a. sea- swagger behind one of the many gobs st.alioned here. His barnacle attachment to sailors has brought him not only a permanent homo but a. rank ns well. He has been r.iiscd to chief puppy officer and his duties include the official function of greeting all newcomers, barking farewell to overseas-bound sailors and leading all drill parades. Chief Rybolt's naval career began several months ago when Chief Boatswain Orville Rybolt, then stationed here, found a shivering, half-starved puppy and took him to the "ship" where dogs hitherto had been taboo. Navy hours and regular chow swiftly brought the canine Rybolt back lo health r.tnd ,'us he grew so did his affection for sailors until today anyone not in navy blue or white 'is strictly beneath his consideration. Rybolt, of course, has "shore leave" like ulJ grood sailors. He always follows the fleet to Riverside amusement park and usually drops unchor at tnc hot dog stand. The mascot owns the enviable reputation of being the only sailor who never pays his own way at the stand and scarcely one of his buddies has ..never stood treat. A pleasant memory to former station personnel, many of whom arc overseas, Rybolt is Ihc reason for dozens of letters from gobs transferred from here and their frequent inquiries about him prove that although Ihcy may leave a girl behind in every port they will be true to the dog they left in Indianapolis.
