TWELVE NORTON FOOD SUPPLY New Armour President Comments On War; Speaks From Experience ~ THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1939. CHICAGO, Sept 16 (#>)-George A. Eastwood, new President of . Armour and Company, believes the European war will have relatively little effect upon food industry in the United States unless the fighting continues for two or more year. The small, wiry successor to Robert H. Cabell a s head of one of the nation's largest businesses said In an interview last night that he considered American industry's chief advantage in the present crisis "the experience of a comparatively recent war:" . ieeming amazingly younger than mis 60 years, Eastwood disclosed fce had been studying the results of the World War of 1914-18 and the •war's effect upon industry, and that he had undertaken a similar analysis of the present conflict. x "In the last war," he said, "the benefits to the meat packing in: dustry were slight during the first couple of years. A sharp upturn in • business got under way in 1916. • but the full effects of" it didn't : become apparent until 1917 and .; 1918, and even 1919. "The food industry .i s not affect; ed in war time to the same degree ; as other industries—steel for • example. During a .war people eat • only & little more than, they do in • normal periods, whereas the ; products of the steel mills and :many other industries are destroy] ed and must be replaced, this profess often repeating itself numer: ous times. However, I should say ; that the story of the past indicates ^an ultimately greater demand for ;meat products than exists now."

SWISS MB BY WAR (MSB Frugal Folk Learn With Shock That Mobilization Is Cosllv Ready To Serve France Again Full peace-time strength for the U. S. army was his 79th birthday message, issued September 13 by Gen. John J. Pershing, A.E.F. commander during the World war. With soldierly erectness the general posed in Washington, D.C . BRITAIN SAYS BERNE. Switzerland, Sept. 1G (JP). —Frugal Swiss, holding shut the neutral side-door to French and German battle lines, learned with shock today that their general mobilization is costing about 5,000,000 Swiss francs ($1,130,000) a day. Along with publication of this estimation, a staggering figure to many a Swiss citizen, an order of the day entitled "Economy is a Soldier's Duty" was issued by General Henri Guisan ,the gentleman farmer who heads Switzerland's 400,000 citizen soldiers. Guisan urged soldiers to economize on gasoline and oil, to take no unnecessary train trips and to throw away nothing which might be of possible use in civilian or military life. Guisan acknowledged that continued mobilization was a strain on the economy of a nation whose total debt, including Cantonal obligations, is about 8,000,000,000 Swiss francs (§1,808,000,000.) Although the Swiss have 116.3 per cent gold coverage of ther currency in circulation, which is the envy of most of the world, a long European war might be ruinous to Swiss economy. Few Swiss, however, suggested that their army should be demobilized, even though confident their neutrality will not be violated. Switzerland, like Belgium and the Netherlands, is operating on the principle a weak nation these days is an op-en invitation for molestation by stronger powers. 4 Geographically Switzerland looks like a convenient side route around the south ends of the French Maginot and German Siegfried lines. The Basel region, however, bristles with fortifications and is teeming with crack sharpshooters of the Swiss citizen army. Furthermore, Switzerland intends for things to remain that wav.

The following reasons were cited: 1-—Britain's drive against submarines has been much more effective than during the first two weeks of the World War, when only one U-boat was sunk. 2.—Britain already has driven virtually all German shipping off the seas and during the first week of the war seized more than 76,000 tons of contraband cargo bound for Germany on neutral vessels. These experts said losses of British vessels would diminish rapidly after the convoy system came fully into operation and that German submarines should not be a serious threat to British shipping. The Belgian vessel was identified in an authorized account of the sinking as the motorship Alex Van Opstal of Antwerp, listed in Lloyd's register as a craft of 5.965 tons. It was believed no lives were lost. A Greek steamer picked up 49 survivors and landed them on the south coast of England. Six were taken to a hospital suffering from fractures and shock.

Poles Told Of Surveillance Rumania Says Refugees Must Submit To Constant Checking CBRNAUTI, Rumania. Sept. 16 (IP) —Rumanian diplomatic authorities crossed into Poland today to notify President Ignace Moscicki and the Polish government that if they chose to flee to this country they must submit to constant surveillance. At the same time, many foreign diplomats who came here last night with their families and staffs, including U. S. Ambassador Anthony J. Drexel Biddle, Jr., returned to the Polish government seat at Zaleszczyki, presumably for the day only. The Rumanian envoys were instructed to tell Polish officials that Polish children and wounded would be given shelter upon crossing the border. Polish troops will be disarmed and placed in internment camps for the duration of the war. "Those who have political occupations," the order said, "will be bound to occupy guarded domiciles and agree to shun politics." BERLIN, Sept. 16 (/p)—Following is the text of a communique issued today by the German supreme army command: On Sept. 15 the southern wing of the German eastern army again swept shattered units of the Polish southern army before it. Fights still are continuing with them at the gates of Lwow and at the Tanew river near Bilgoraj. Przemysl was taken. Far eastward thereof motorized troops reached Slodzimierz. By sending new German forces, the ring around the Polish army encircled at Kutno was strengthened and narrowed for attack. After warding off the enemy's attempts to break through southeastward of Warsaw, German troops stationed there captured 8,000 prisoners and 126 cannon. They now are close- to Praga. Pialystok was captured. The fight for the citadel of Brest still is in progress. The air force frustrated an attempt of the last Polish transport movements to the eastern frontier. In the west there was enemy artillery activity at Saarbruecken. Local enemy forward thrusts were warded off with heavy losses for the enemy. No air attacks on German territory occurred.

Faulty Air Intake Valve Likely Cause Of The Squalus Disaster Naval Board Of Inquiry Enters Hull Of Sub After 25 Of 26 Dead Removed; Valve Failed To Close When Tried; Further Probe Planned. PROMOTED WASHINGTON. Sept. 16 (/P)— The navy announced todny the following £saval Reserve officer had been promoted to the rank designated: Edwin H. Cole, 3935 Greenmount Ave., Baltimore. Lt.

PORTSMOUTH. N. H., Sept. (/P). Huddled in the slimy, dripping interior of the salvaged submarine Squalus, members of a naval board of inquiry grimly viewed a mechanical demonstration which dramatically illustrated what may have caused the craft to plunge to tragedy May 23. Only a short time after 25 of the dead were removed from the rusty, battered hull yesterday, board members watched a navy man yank a lever designed to close two air intake valves on the sub. The smaller of the two banged shut promptly. The other—and larger— valve did not budge. The aide pumped the gear, which works somewhat on the same principal as hydraulic brakes, two or three times and the valve finally closed, but Lt. Oliver F. Xnquin. rescued commander of the *4,000.000 submersible, promptly submitted to board members a reiteration behaved the same way 11G days ago when the Squalus sank in 240 feet of water, -15 miles off this port, during routine, test dives. Previous testimony taken by the board had lent strong support to the theory that a valve failure had permitted tons of sea water to pour in and sink the vessel, although men in the control room at the time testified lights had flashed on the signal "Christmas tree" indicating all valves closed. Shortly before, saddened navy men removed 25 bodies from the vessel, and although there was fear that one body had been lost forever in the sea, none could say definitely until a thorough search had been made. The body not found was ihat of Robert P. Thompson of Nashville. Tenn.. ship's cook. Some officials said his body might have been lost through an open- hatch during the difficult salvage HID WEST HE AT WAVETOU27; RELIEFONWAY (Continued trom Pagb l) tore millions of apples from trees, making them unfit for anything except vinegar. More than 3,500,000 pounds of the fruit were dumped at a St. Joseph vinegar plant this week. Oklahoma suffered one of its worst fall droughts in history. Some towns were on emergency water rations because of a shortage caused by prolonged heat and lack of rainfall. Crops were reported damaged in scattered areas. The corn crop was hurried into maturity by the intense heat. Many rural regions reported badly burned pastures. Drought conditions prevailed in upstate New York areas as the temperature hit new high marks. The State Department of Agriculture predicted curtailed production of late crops, and said many crops had passed the stage where rainfall would be beneficial. Showers broke the heat wave in many parts of the south yesterday. Western Arkansas was an exception, however, the mercury there reaching 101—the 12th day of 100 plus temperatures this month. Indiana reported eight heat deaths, Illinois seven. Wisconsin had three, Missouri and Michigan two apiece, and Kentucky, Iowa. Minnesota, Ohio, and Pennsylvania one each. Seymour, Ind., recorded a maximum temperature reading of 105 yesterday while Vincennes, Ind.. was just one degree cooler. Other maxima included: Rochester, N.

BOSTON, Sept. 16 (£>)—To a war- conscious ' world the American Chemical Society today related stories of at least seven major advances on a frontier in a war that never ends—mankind's battle to solve the secrets of nature. Departing from their 9th meeting, the chemists studied reports of important discoveries and advanced research affecting the treatment of human suffering, the knowledge of living things and th© progress of industry. Nobel Prizeman Harold C. Urey, of Columbia, told how investigators worked for two years in a sealed room where an apparatus containing enough deadly poison to kill all of them carried on reactions resulting in the first practical manufacture of "heavy carbon," an element that may be used to solve many mysteries of life. A Harvard doctor disclosed the first laboratory production of vitamin K, nature's blood-clotting agent; two New York investigators reported progress toward a "cheap" the treatment of the commcTn cold, hay fever and asthma; and another research team announced their belief that they had identified the immunity principle which prevents tooth decay. A California scientist opened up an entire new field of research when he said that the death of human blood cells could be "almost indefinitely postponed" by low temperatures in the domain of absolute zero—159.69 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. Virtually at the same time the society nominated Charles Goodyear to the Hall of Fame for his discovery of the vulcanization of rubber 100 years ago, a chemist of this day reported progres steward a "cheap" • method of synthesizing natural rubber from waste gases of petroleum. A revolutionary chemical reaction, discovered by Dr. George Cal- ingaert, of Detroit, who said the new development shows that "like" compounds in chemistry can react at ordinary temperatures instead of only like with unlike, startled the rich organic chemistry industry with jts possibilities.

The Soviets have been more or less openly supporting the Chinese with materials. A Russo-Japanese agreement also would deal a blow at the British foothold in Asia and might possibly affect United States interests in the Far East, observers here said. As a result of today's developments, much deeper significance fs now attached to a communique issued yesterday by Tass, official Soviet news agency, which said Russia had not taken any Man- choukuo territory and had no intention of doing so. Triumph For Hitler Ever since the signing of the German-Soviet non-aggression pact on Aug. 24, Germany has been trying to promote a reconciliation between Moscow and Tokyo. The signing of a non-aggression pact between Russia and Japan would be considered another diplomatic triumph for Adolf Hitler. There have been intense efforts j among Nazi officials to stave off what was feared might be British efforts toward some understanding with Japan. Japanese troops garrisoned in Manchoukuo have had repeated border clashes with Soviet-Mongolian troops along the winding 1-,000-mile frontier. Reports of these skirmishes have been vague. Outer-Mongolia, under Soviet protection, has long disputed her boundary with Japanese-dominated Manchoukuo. The most recent series of border clashes started last May 11 and have continued intermittently. Some of the engagements were reported so extensive that planes, tanks and mechanized forces took part. Bombing raids were engaged in by hoth sides. The I. 0. O. F. Drum and Bugle Corps of Gilead Encampment held its monthly meeting last' evening during which officers were elected for the ensuing year. . , . Officers were named as follows: President, S. C.

The director, William Nichols turned over to the treasurer a money order received for participating in the Mummers Parade in. Philadelphia last January 1, 1939. The treasurer's report showed a grai tfying balance of last year's mark. The corps will attend church services on Sunday evening, September 17 in a body at the First Baptist Church. The Rev. Paul B.
