BOIMKS J,OCATK1> Economist Roger Babson Predicts 'Major Depression Wcllosley, Mass., Sept. 13—(UP) —The economist who accurately forecast tho 1029 slock market crash now predicts another major uoprcss/.m about aM9 or 1950. Economist Roger W. Babson also foresees tho collapse of Germany .sometime between Nov. 7th of this year and March 7th, 10-lD. He 'says Japan's defeat—as far as the time piemen I. is concerned—depends entirely on Russia. Heix' is the outlook as Babson sees it: Temporary slumps in prices and employment will follow the col- Japsc of Germany nnd Japan. These slumps will be followed immediately by a two or thrco- year period of excellent business. Anyone willing to work for a market wage at what he or she is filled for will be employed during the post-war period of prosperity. Stock market prices will soar only to collapse about 10-19 or 1900 clue to satisfied consumer demand and icar of communism. Babson said that the next depression—und we quote—"will be a nightmare of unemployment and failures and trouble of that sort." H? said that thc\ average pay in the era oT postwar prosperity .will be slimmer than it is now. Supreme Commander For Fight Agaipst Japan To Be Named (By Dulled Press) The choice of a supreme commander 'si direct tho final campaign to defeat Japan, is believed to rest among three Americans, Admirals'Nimitz and King, and General MacAi-.thur. The selection of 'one of them for Hie top post 'in the Pacific," Is reported to be the main subject now before' President " Rcosevclt ,and Prime Minister 'Churchill at their conferences In Quebec. President Roosevelt U' reported to favor the"'appointment' -6f''h' naval office]'.— probably Admiral' King: or Admiral Nlir.itz. But Allied officials sny the British want General MacArLliur, The announcement in Washing; ton that Mr. Bcosovclt had nominated NimlLz to be a full, admiral. Is'thought to beat" significantly on the decisions ' now being mi^de.' NlVnits seems slated for' a High-- cr 'place in the new Pacific set-up' than he now holds. If hc'tlbos not emerge as 'commander of the whole Allied 1 forces against Japan—he may be sclccl'cd chief of combined Allied, naval forces operating'un- der the over-all command of'an- other 'naval officer.

Yes, I want to thank you for the memo b'cok' which I received yesterday. Was a little too' tired to write last night, after a' day'"of K.P. Now, ' don't look surprised— in' this outfit, anyone from buck private to Tech. -fifth grade db : K.P. Nothing like the Air Corps. Remember tha*. out of 21 months in that brunch I only did Jv.P. about j. total of 14 days. In fact, !he last • time before being transferred here was in Sept.. '-12, when I did a week of it. There's a. great deal of difference between the Air Corps and an Armor.cd Division. You may want to know how come I was (transferred from the Air Corps after being in' it so long, Well, l.o tell you the truth, no mutter how long or.c is in the service, they'll never know how it works. Could go into detail about it. Then it wouldn't look so good in the paper. Some one would see it —then that would be'all I'd need lo be called up or. the carpet for. After 21 months in New England, then to end up here. 'Tis quite a change. According to what I see in "the News of the 1 different boys from town thnt are at West- over.Field, Mass., makes me lonesome lo get back up there. From Weslover you have Holyoico, Chicopee, Chicopee Fulls. Springfield, real close to go on a night pass. Here the only good place is Nashville, Tonn., ;ind the only time it really pays to go there, is ^on a week-end, if and when wo get one} off. For a night off, well, thevo's | Clarksville. Tenn., or Hopkinsville, | Ky., to go to. The Gestapo (as we call the Military Police M, P.'s) make sure you're off the street at II p. m. When I left Weslover at least we had till midnight. That's why I say Nashville is the best bet, So far there's no • time limit there. Say, you better keep, the News Coming this way or I won't have any friends. They get more of a kick out of the comics than I do. Guess I will have to-call it a night as I he boys want to play tome' pinochle before hitting the old suck. ' Thanks again for tho memo book.
