It could not cause deterioration and it could not injure the skin of the wearer." Ail clothing, from underwear to the outer garments', from socks to' gloves and woolen hoods fitting over and around gas masks, is impregnated. A soldier so armored in his GI garments is safe from all forms of blister gases other than direct contact with them, in heavy liquid form. Only >";ition So E/juIpped i The American soldier is the only soldier in the world to have that protection. Mai. Cooper said he doubted If tho enemy could determine the impregnating' chemical for many months after beginning a study of captured clothing. Even then, many more months would be required to manufacture it and the equipment needed to produce the clnthinr. The plants in this country went into operation early in 1912. only o few weeks after we entered the war. Everything was ready, thanks' service, told today of those heart-I to the men who never tjuit during breaking 20 years of work which, ' quite possibly, helped to eliminate to date JTUS warfare in this conflict. The chemical 'warfare service went to work in an effort to nou- Iraii/u blister 'gnscs laic ir, the last war, when 73 per cent of the artillery shells fired carried gases, ! ic said. But. when peace returned, the nation wanted t.o forget war. Ap- propria'Jons in those gay 1920s for esearch into gr.s warfare were 'ew and small. "However, they kept working on this, as they received funds," he •elated, "By 1938—about. 20 years after they started—they arrived at this process. It was worked out inder the direct supervision of the chemical warfare service at the Edge wood, N. J., arsenal." • Ho\v many formulae were developed, then discarded, before the uccessfu! one wns found remained intold. But the number was large. 'It was a very clilllcult prob- em." Maj. Cooper said, "The those 20 years of research. Those plants can turn out protective clothing lor many thou-' sands of fighting men every day. 1 The figure is surprisingly large. As you watch the bales of cloth- Ing go through the scaled vats and the dryers and on out to lighting men, you remember the warnings of Allied leaders that we arc ready ? should tho enemy resort to gas' war'fa'r'e. Tho bales represent one 1 reason why we, are ready. ! more than 18,860,000 articles. Men operating many of t.hssc laundrv 'units wear theater battle stars. The first units to arrive were of the mobile type and were put ashore with the assault troops in out-of-the-way places and operated in the combat areas. As the forces .moved westward, the units were transhipped and new operating bases had to be hacked out o'f the jungle. Maintenance posed another rtif- Hcult problem. Replacement supplies and spare parts were difficult to obtain at such places as Guadalcanal. Enpiriiu Santo or Kolun-.- bangara. Shipments sent by ship and plane had to be sandwiched in between priorities. In July, 19-13, the first of the flxod. post-type laundries began operation in the theater and by October six had been established, officials at the .Depot reported. At the end of nine months of operation, output of the six !lxcd laundries ha'd increased from about 32, home on "furlough after t\\v> years overseas, said he showed up one day for a flight with a bod cold and was grounded. That plane never came back, he said. Trie crew bailed out over Germany to become prisoners of war. Later, Sgt. Tevauit was assigned to fill oul a crew of green flyers.

Nothing has been heard since from the crew, he said. r.OST BOV FOUND P.ujnford, Maine, Sept. 20—(UP) —An all-night search for a Jfr- ycar-oTO boy who became lost In woods near Rumford has endtd in success.
