PAGE SIX 40,000,000 days wasted! That is the cost in working time of a normal year’s colds and influenza. And every one of those days is doubly precious in wartime. Careless coughs and sneezes are doing the enemy’s work and delaying victory. What do I d 0...? I build up my resistance to colds and ’flu by breathing fresh air; eating wisely and getting a full night’s sleep as often as I can. I do my best to avoid stuffy, crowded places, get a meal before starting for work, and eat my full rations, with plenty of potatoes and other vegetables I try to eat something green and raw every day. If I do catch a cold, I use my handkerchief whenever I cough or sneeze, and so keep the germs from spreading to others. Issued by the Ministry of Information Space presented to the Nation by the Brewers' Society AT YOUR SERVICE WE have served the public for three generations and won their confidence and goodwill.

FASTER AND HIGHER" U.S. PLANES A "hitherto impossible technique which will enable American warplanes to fly farther, faster, and nißher ’’ has been developed by the Fairchild Engine and Aeroplane Corporation, according to its president. J. Carleton Ward. Mr. Ward said that the discovery. which had been a military secret for many months concerned a chemical process for bonding pure aluminium to steel. The technique had been used in the production of American aircraft engines for more than a year, and “ makes possible a marked reduction in the structural weight o£ air-cooled engines." —A.P. GOAT MASCOT IS DEAD At the age of 14, Billie, the regimental goat of the Ist Battalion the Royal Welch Fusiliers, has died at Wrexham Barracks. For 200 years the Fusiliers have had as a mascot a goat which walked in front of the band and drums. GREAT WORK BY COUNTY RED CROSS Practically every member of every detachment of the British Red Cross Society in Gloucestershire is engaged on some form of war work, according to the report of Miss C. D. Allen (County Director), which was presented at the annual mealing of the County Branch at the Shire Hall on Saturday. There was a good attendance of members. In the absence of the Dowager Duchess of Beaufort (County President), the cha«r was occupied by Miss L- Ratcliff. She was supported bv M*»s /Hen and Sir Walter Craddock (hon. treasurer). Mrs. G. Calrns-Terry (Gloucester). and Mrs. Lowsley-Williams (Tetbury) were added to the list of vice-presidents and the general committee was re-appointed with the addition of Lady Apsley and Mr. R. E. Chapman. The report of the Finance Committee presented by Sir Walter Craddock showed that the ‘Flag Day collection amounted to 15,190/18/5. The accounts showed that the Branch’s main income was . from three sources: Interest on investments £2 B '9''6/3; refund of income tax £92/8/6; and the Branch’s proportion of the Flag Day proceeds which amounted to £1,119/13/0 against £997/3/4 the previous year. The balance brought in amounted to £215/4/7, and the year closed with a balance in current account of £lBO/18/4, with £BOl/12/3 on deposit. Moving the adoption of the re port, Lady Tubbs (Chairman of the Finance Committee) said it must give everyone a feeling of satisfaction and security. Lady Tubbs also proposed a vote of appreciation to Sir Walter Craddock for his work. Many Awards The County Director in her report stated that in addition to the seven members notified in .’her last report, a Distinguished Service Certificate had also been awarded to Miss J. Healing, Glos. 46, for distinguished and untailing work with the Civil Defence in Cheltenham. I.o ng service medals for 15 years’ service had been awarded to Messrs. A. Bunston, R. E. Chapman, A, J.

More Youth Detachments Mias Allen reported that there were now 46 detachments in the county—l 4 men’s (including two youth detachments) with a membership of 574, and 32 women’s detachments (including eight youth detachments) with a membership of 1,295, making a total of 1,869. A new wompQ's detachment had been registered at Patchway and three at Gloucester. A mixed detachment had been registered at Rtonehouse. Eight more youth detachments had been registered, six girls’ and two boys’, with a total membership of 26 boys, with 18 probationers and 106 girls with 155 probationers. The great increase had been in the youth detachments. Girls’ detachments had been added at Cirencester, Gloucester, Wottonunder-Edge, Brimscombe, Oucnington, and Naiisworth. Boys’ detachments had been added at Gloucester and Stroud. In addition six cadet units had been formed, with a total membership of 138. and there were 12 Junior Red Cross Links in schools. In Civil Defence there were 147 men and 404 women. The branch had 46 full-time nursing auxiliaries in the Civil Nursing Reserve and 94 were doing part-time. There were 146 V.A.D. men serving in the Forces. Practically every member of every detachment was engaged on some form of war work. During 1943. 33 V A.D.'s had been posted, 20 members to naval hospitals and 13 to military hospitals. On the question of V.A.D s under military law; Miss Allen said she felt that the Army authorities did not appreciate sufficiently the excellent work done by the V.A.D.s, especially those who were enrolled before 1939. The great majority of these were called up for service and only one or two failed to respond to the call-up. The military hospitals could not have been staffed without V.A.D.S. More recruits were needed. Ready To Go Overseas So far only 12 people had volunteered for po: t-armistice relief work. She hoped they might hear GREATEST DAY BLITZ OF WAR United States Strategic Air Forces in Britain launched against Germany on Sunday what is officially described as "the greatest daylight aerial undertaking of the war.” A great force of aircraft, including many from R.A.F. and Dominion squadrons, launched an attack of vital importance aimed hundreds of miles inside Germany. This great day onslaught followed immediately on an R.A.F. night assau't on Leipzig, where more than 2,300 tons were dropped. Regardless of cost, the Allied Air Forces had set out to smash completely some newly-discovered centres of German aircraft production. At Leipzig at least 20 major airframe and aero-engine Arms, bombed out of their factories elsewhere, had succeeded in setting up one of the most vital sources of the Luftwaffe’s present power. 79 Missing •R.A.F, Bomber Command suffered its heaviest losses of the war in the night attack: 79 aircraft were missing from its operations. Staggered by the quick return of the American forces to an objective so deep inside Germany, the Luftwaffe was able to offer only comparatively light opposition to the day attack. B.H.A. HEALTH CHARTER WARNING The future of 1,100 voluntary hospitals will be jeopardised it the weekly contribution system is ended under the Government’s proposed national health service. This warning was given on Sunday by the British Hospitals Association in a statement on the health plan White Paper. Lack of reference to the contributary movement is a “most serious omission,” say the association, and it will have to be "most closely and seriously considered.” Nearly 11,000,000 make a voluntary weekly contribution to secure free hospital treatment when it is needed for themselves and their families, the statement adds. Six months before the Beveridge Report the voluntary hospitals had adopted as part of their postwat planning the policy of making facilities available to all, regardless of income. The statement points out that nearly every major discovery in the relief of pain and improvements in cures have been made and perfected by voluntary hospitals. Support will be needed more than ever to ensure that extensions of treatment and research necessary under the Government’s proposals can be made. COUNCIL PROTESTS TO CHURCHILL Rawtenstall (Lancs.) Town Council have instructed the Town Clerk to write to the Prime Minister protesting against the continued absence of their Member of Parliament, Sir Ronald Cross, who is High Commissioner for Australia. The Town Councils of Bacup and Haslingden also in the constituency, are being asked to support the protest. Sir Ronald has been M.P. for Rossendale since 1931 and Australian High Commissioner since 1941. . DESTROYER JANUS LOST H.M.S. Janus, the destroyer that by last November had almost worn out her guns in battles, has been lost, the Admiralty announced on Sunday night. She had a complement of 183. Janus threw more than 6,000 shells at the enemy from Norway to Crete, at Matapan, and in Malta convoys. Last month she was reported to be supporting the Bth Army by shelling the Adriatic coast of Italy. of others, and already a unit was ready to proceed overseas, consisting of 30 people, of whom 17 were under the Joint War Organisation. Regarding the finances of the Joint County Committee. Sir Walter Craddock stated that every penny that came into the committee came in under one of three heads. During lest year the sum of {6,825 9s. was received on account of the general fund; for prisoners of war they received {14,481 10s. sd. and for the Aid to Russia Fund, {9BB 18s. 2d. The total sum of money coming into his hands, as treasurer of the Joint County Committee—and including the Flag Day moneywas {27,494 ss. 4d. Mrs. j. H. Gibbon (County Organiser of the Central Hospitals Supply Service) told the branch that during the year about 15,000 garments made by work parties had been sent to headquarters. A great many things had been sent to Russia. Speaking as county organiser for prisoners of war, Miss Gibbon said there were now 1,014 prisoners from Gloucestershire.
