Cochran wired in reply that Salem was an Ideal location, then began a hur- ' ried search with Pres.

V Twelve days later Mr. Howard , and an associate, Joseph Wiggins, from the Detroit office of the firm. arrived in Salem. No suitable site bad yet been found, but the chamber officials assured the men they would obtain the type of quarters desired. 1 "We had 17 locations under 1 consideration,' said Howard Wed-' nesday, "but it seemed that we " always turned back to Salem. The people have been wonderfully helpful here." " After assisting in arrangements . preliminary to starting full-scale operations of the plant, Mr. Wig- gins left Salem last week to re turn to Detroit. Mr. Howard will remain here for an indefinite time. . All labor la the assembly plant was recruited locally, The crews 1 are folly, staffed at the present . time, Howard said. -- - .

John Scott, state field repre sentative for the organization, and Gladys L Guinaw, disaster relief worker, left Wednesday afternoon for Euzene, there to confer with other flood relief workers on the situation as a whole. Queries from relatives in other st2?;3 r-ured into Red Cross chapter cilices, and workers pointed to them as a reason why every person in the stricken areas should -register. The telegrams inquiring as to condition of kinf oik here will be answered by the Red Cross, but only; after a record has been -secured of condition of the parties concerning whom the questions were asked, Irl S. Mc- Sherry, county disaster relief chairman, said.! In some areas where flood wa ter. stood last weekend residents have been found drinking well water without first properly cleansing the - source or boiling the water. Dr. W. J. Stone, county health officer, was informed Wed nesday. Danger of typhoid from such sources is very real and may remain so for some time because of the type of debris washed down by the high water and the considerable loss of livestock, much of which is decaying in the river, health authorities have declared. 1200 Added Miners Join Goal Strike WILKES-BARRE, Pa, Jan.

Kennedy's plea, climaxing series of fast-breaking developments in the anthracite industry Wednesday, was made at a closed meeting of local union commit tee. He declared the union's executive committee would hear any protest over dues and said operators would be asked to open their contracts for wage negotiations as soon as the she-day week ques tion is settled. The committeemen agreed to take Kennedy's recommendations back to their locals and submit them to a vote at special meet ings. Finnish Paper HELSINKI, Finland, Jan. B.-CP) -The Helsinki 1 newspaper Uusi Suomi Wednesday charged that powerful hot I lie interests who view .with disfavor continuance of F i n n i s h-American relations were systematically sabotaging Furnish sympathies in the United States. This national coalition party newspaper cited what it called exaggerated and untrue" stories about Finland appearing in the American press.1 It accused the hostile interests with trying to portray members of the Finnish government as per sonally ill-disposed toward America, as in the Japanese film in cident.

Quickly, the Usual procedure of adopting a resolution to notify the house and the president that the senate was ready for business was accomplished. : All this was preliminary to a session which many prophesied: weald prove the most important in the nation's history. TharsH day it will meet in Joint session to hear President Roosevelt deliver his annual message, making recommendations for eon-gresstonal action. After that the session will settle down to the details ot its great task. The membership, milling about the chamber, was called to order by Clerk South Trimble. The chaplain, the Rev. James Shera Montgomery, prayed briefly, asking that the membership be vested with , a "great discretion," and then nominations for the speaker' ship were received. Martin, one of a committee which escorted Rayburn down the center aisle, presented him to the house in a brief address. "The 77th congress was known as the war congress," he said. "This is going to . be known as the Victory Congress. This congress is going to see this war in a decisive and early end." I ' : That, he added, was the "aim of every one," and impressively; he continued: The leaders of the opposition pledge their effort to that end." Ia ' Rayburn, ho went on to say, the house had elected a "really great speaker," and a "great American." The speaker, accepting his post. said he was deeply moved. "We have just closed a great congress," hev said. "We were criticized and we will be criti cized.' Congress, he said, makes but cannot administer the laws. It declares wars but others must fight them. The 77th congress. he added, passed every law and granted every dollar that was necessary for the war. "I believe and I trust," he aaaea, inai tne congress assembling today will so i act that . do -. . . just criticism will not fan upon it" Bringing up himself the bris tling issue of presidential powers,! he reassured the impatient among the membership that there Was: abundant cooperation i between the White House and congress.! Congressional leaders confer with' the president weekly, he said, and discuss future proposals ! and ac tions. . . - "It is sny unwavering inten tion to defend and protect the rights the prerogatives and Itbe powers of the house of represen tatives," he' said, as both sides of the aisle applauded vigorously. Adding that there was coopera tion at the White House, he took sharper tone in speaking of other divisions of the executive branch of the government. Officials in these! agencies,! he said in a tone of strong determination, "must consult" -those who are responsible to congress. "I trust and I believe that that will be done, he added. : As for the war, b most be pressed ea to victory, and there aat bo "no stoppiaa awtn the vaiUllw mmd pasaaisaa f Berlin, Rome and Tokyo are wiped from the face of the earth. j ! "We must win the war and keep it won," Barbara said, and after the victory we must "disarm these vandals and keep them disarmed.'' Rep.

In addition, the communique related that 84 ' Japanese - were killed In mopping up operations in the Mount Austen sector of Guadalcanal. Mount Austen, 1314-foot peak southwest of the American-held airfield,' was wrested from the Japanese Jan uary 4. in an me operations, seven Japanese planes definitely were shot down and four others were probably destroyed. Two United States planes were lost. . Flying Fortresses attacked the Japanese cruiser at Bain, Boa-rainTille island. They were accompanied by Lockheed Lightning fighters which got into a battle with 15 Japanese planes. Three of the enemy were shot down and two others probably downed. The Japanese transport hit by bombs was attacked by Flying Fortresses in the Shortland Island area. All these attacks, together with an air raid on RabauL in which Gen. Douglas McArthur reported that nine ships were hit, fell into a general pattern of 'operations designed to upset, an apparently impending Japanese move in the southwest Pacific.

I now increase this to 20. They are not supermen al though they try to make us believe they are. They are just low monkeys. I say. monkeys because cannot say what I would like to call them." i Rating Order Revoked, Dam WASHINGTON, Jan. 6 The war production board revok ed Wednesday preference ratines orders issued to the corps of en gineers for 65 flood control and river and harbor ""projects included in the army's civil works program.

Wagner's father joined in the search for his son last month, but returned home recently, badly worn out physically. ! Wagner quit toe University of Pittsburgh in his junior year to enlist as a flying cadet. He was made a second lieutenant in 1938. "Buzz" was a taciturn sort of fellow who dealt more in action; than words. He never would discuss bis. personal activities, although associates said he destroy ed somewhere between 15 and 50 Japanese- planes in the early weeks of the war. When the war broke out, Wag ner was a first lieutenant stationed near Manila. There are many stories about his feats which led to this becoming the youngest lieutenant colonel in the army after he had been transferred to Australia. One of these : was about the time "Buzz" and squadron dove on a Jap landing party at Vlgan. His companions i were ; all shot down, but "Buzz" made five sepa rate attacks," returning each time for more fuel and ammunition. Another story was aboat the time three 'Zeros" chased him around a volcano. His plane was faster on a level flight bat , slower as a climber, so he kept going around the volcano until he was chasing the Jans.
