This ruling hit* all Sterling pin- tall machines which automatically pay off in free game. 1 ;, even though the local machines do not pay off in either caoh or merchandise. "You either win or don't win greater amusement." Judge Kullberg declared. He cited B Wisconsin court decision which held that amusement Is a thing of value. He Raid he was holding with this argument that amusement has value and that a device rewarding players with additional amusement is a gambling device. Judge Kullberg hrld that while a certain element of .skill is involved in hitting top bumpers of a pinball machine, the course of the ball after top,, bumpers are passed is "wholly and solely" determined by luck. The fact that a machine Ls licensed as an amusement device by a city ordinance and taxed n.s such by the federal government Is not material. Judge Kullberg ruled. "Certainly nothing," he said, "that could be put into the laws of the United States would determine the character of the machine. That must be determined by an examination of the machine and by its operation." In passing upon the amount of skill required. Judge Kullberg said: "The top bumpers may be struck by placing a certain amount of tension upon the plunger in the machine. There is no question in my mind, however, but what after the top bumpersj arc struck, from there on your element of chance is almost completely in charge, because it depends upon what side of the bumper the ball strikes as to what the .future course down the table will be. ' The speed of the ball determines what the rebound will be when it strikes the rubber bumpers or the angle it does strike the rubber bumpers. "In other words, after you get past the first three, or probably four, bumpers, whether you will win by hitting the first 11 numbered lights "depends entirely upon something that Is not skill, but is wholly and •olely luck." The decision was made anent the confiscation by the sheriff of a machine seized at the Sportland amuse ment «rc«de In Rockford. Judge Kullberg ordered the machine destroyed. However a 30 day stay of execution was granted in order to carry an appeal to the appellate court. Minimnm charge 50« Ratr, 10f r>fr line.

Granting Germans Patents Aids U.S. On War Inventions By Peter Prison WASHINGTON — (Special — Recent award of a U. S. patent to a German citizen for a propellerless airplane driven through the skies like a rocket brings to light some interesting background on the international granting of patents on military devices in times like these. First Impression might be that the United States government was going out of its way to be nice to the Germans in granting them patents and In encouraging German Inventors to apply for foreign patents in time of war. but the situation doesn't spell out that way at all. As a matter of fact, it's a distinct advantage to the U. S. to have the Germans registering their patents in this country now. particularly on military gadgets of destruction. The way it works out. it's to the advantage of the United States ment of justice has been doing a little spade work on government purchasing agencies which have un consciously or not been supporting monopolies, anti-trust's pet enemy. What has happened is that specifications on some Items have been so written that only one manufacturer ha.s been able to supply the goods needed, and the smaller. Independent producers have been frozen out of the bidding. Whenever one of these small Independent* yells, the department of justice boys move in and try to break up the monopoly, quietly. Items which have been worked on so far Include everything from filing cabinets for the limitless government correspondence, to artificial teeth for the army. About-facing the Figure* Whether It makes you feel any better or not, Vice President Wallace's recent piece on national income and national debt, written for Land Policy Review, one of the department of agriculture's numerous magazines, has presented some figures which will no doubt be used frequently as arguments Justifying a .still bigger national debt. In brief, the Wallace theory 1* based on a comparison of private, state and federal debts, income and Interest payments in the boom year of 1929 and the boom year of 1941 says will Michael Schiltz Dies At St. Joseph's Home Word was received this morning by Rev. Fr. M. B. Krug that Michael Schiltz, one of the oldest members of Sacred Heart parish, passed away during the night at St. Joseph's home in Freeport where he had been for several years. The body will be brought to the Meyer funeral home today and will rest there until the funeral, for which arrangements have not been completed. ents since this makes the tion available to U. S. military services. All applications for patents are carefully reviewed by patent examiners as to their military value and one special group of examiners works in close co-operation with army, navy, and office of production management. Ail patents found to contain information of military value are then ordered withheld from publication, and the army and navy are informed of the patents. When war on Germany was declared in 1917. the U. 8. government seized all patents awarded to German citizens and appropriated Much Rainfall Causes Delay in Farm Work A total of 1.50 Inches of rain fell during the past two days up until 11 a. m. Saturday. The creeks and Rock river are high and are carrying a large volume of water. Farmers are unable to get into their fields for late fall plowing or planting and corn picking is at a standstill. Mechanical pickers cannot be operated under present conditions.

The same thing would probably happen In case the U. S. should declare war In the present emergency. Jones Jompe the Gun What happens in Washington when one of the big shots starts talking without having all his henchmen around to keep him straight on details were demonstrated the other day by Federal Loan Administrator Jesse Jones. Usually when the administrator holds a press conference he is Hanked by a row of dlginlfied gentlemen who do the work on the dozen or more government corporations of which Mr. Jones Is titular dead. They laugh at the boss' Jokes and answer questions he can't. • On this particular occasion, however, when a question came up about new loans to Latin-America, Mr. Jones said one had been granted to Mexico for road Improvement when, as a matter of fact, the loan had not yet been agreed to or* signed. Negotiators were still at work on It, in secret. Warren Lee Pierspn. head of Export-Import bank, wasn't there to correct the announcement, with the result that there was much confusion and covering up to be done in Mexico City, for Washington had agreed for simultaneous announcement should the loan be granted, and signed. —Incidentally-.—in -connection—with Latin American loans, one of the new good neighborly deals under consideration Is a Venezuelan application for finance to help tear down the red light district of Caracas and build a modern workers' housing project on the site. EntaU Rubber Shortage When the lour new defense plants for making artificial rubber are in production, some time in 1942, they will be able to turn out a total of only 60,000 tons of artificial rubber a year, or 10 per cent of the 600,000 tons of raw rubber now consumed in the U. S. annually. Plants now in operation making neoprene. koroseal and other syn- leas short-term debts $13 billion less, state and local government debts' 13 billion more, and federal debts 130 billion more. These add up to a net total Indebtedness of "only" (10 billion more tnan in 1939. But interest charges, because of lower Interest rates, will be $3 billion less In 1941 than In 1929. or W.3 billion in 1941 against $9.5 billion in 1929. Carrying this argument to,a conclusion. the country could go 'into debt approximately 3O per cent more than It Is already and still be pay- Ing no more Interest than it did In 1929. Two Cars Collide A var driven by George Foley and one pulling away from the curb, driven by Lawrence Viering collided on East Fourth street Friday about 4 p. m. There was not much damage.

Watchers at Deal, on England's southeast coast, saw the day shift go into action, heading toward Calais and Boulogne through squalls of •now. sleet and hall with an armada that blotted out a mile of sky for the brief moment it swept overhead. The *r ministry news service said the R.AJ. scored bomb hit* on'll axis ships and almost certainly torpedoed a twelfth in smashing attack on German north sea lines from._ southern _jJorwty to the French coast. The R.AJ*. struck anew at Naples on the chin of the Italian boot, and the Sicilian ports ot Llcat* and Palermo, but the British report on these 1 raids, apparently by the middle eastern R. A.

In addition, references have been made in the press at various time* to "several" or "a number" of persons who had been led before a fir- Ing squad or to the gallows. In many cases the press failed to follow up on original announcement that a death sentence had been handed down by a court martial, thus leaving In doubt whether those sentenced had been killed or later pardoned. The most dramatic executions were those at Nantes and Bordeaux. where 100 French hostages were killed for the assassination of two German officers. Lieut. Col. Paul Friedrlch Hotz and Dr. Hans Ulrich Relmers. Since the drive against communists began, a total of 158 have met sudden death at the hands, of German executioners In France, published reports show— but France is far down the list in total killed. The most unruly peoples under the German sway, judging' by the number of known executions, are the tough mountain folk of Serbia, who paid for non -cooperation with 345 llve«. For an attack on two German soldiers alone, 200 Serbs wer« reported killed in reprisal. Close on the heels of the Serbs come the Croats. A total of 254 are «ald to have made the one way trip to the execution square, mostly on charges of being communists.

In (hi.* strange day and Rgr of universal .stuffed shirts and false fronts it's almost impossible to determine anyone's real motives, but men high In the councils of labor, men familiar with the strange workings of internal labor politic,";— as complicated a set of cross currents as ever bedeviled any political party —the."* men say Lewis' chances for recapturing CIO leadership arc practically nil for the simple reason that Lewis has lost the support, of the left wing labor forces. The original alliance between Low- Is snd the left wingers took form back in 1933. Lewis then believing that If the leftists had something to contribute to industrial unionism, their talents and resources .should be used. Since 1933. Lewis lias never indulged In red baiting, ha.s never said one public word against the left wing in the labor movement. Other labor leaders have openly blasted Bt the reds from time to time, but not Lewis. Sltdowm Started Rift In the years right after 1P33. Lew- Is and labor generally "sold" Roosevelt hard. Organization drives under the wage and hour law were conducted with the slogan, "Roosevelt wants you to join a union." The results were phenomenal, but by 1936 Lewis was drifting away from Roosrvelt, ahead of the reds. The battle over the sildown .strikes In Detroit had come along, and Lewis supposedly told the President that if the men wore shot out of the auto plants, Lewis would be in there with them, and Lewis would have to be shot out, too. Feuding between Roosevelt and Lewis, as In the case of the captive coal mine dispute, Ls old stuff to both and it goes back more than five years. By 1940. Lewis is supposed to have been ready to bargain with Roosevelt, trading labor support for certain concessions to CIO. The deal didn't come off. Lewis then began to be undermined by his own unions —the auto workers and other great sections of the CIO pledging their support to Roosevelt in spit* of the stand taken by Lewis. He then believed the Issue was whether Roosevelt was to head the labor movement in America, or whether a man from labor's ranks was to lead. Murray a Middle-Roader In the 1940 election. Lewis last on that issue, but in spite of that, at the CIO national convention only H few weeks later, Lewis was the dominating figure. His basic strength was his United Mine Workers' union, but his support came from the left wing unions and marginal groups among the steel and auto workers.

They point to three things in support of tlie charge that Lewis is pro-fascist and an appeaser: 1. Lewis has made only one statement on foreign policy and that by indirection when he signed the recent Landqn-Hoover statement op- tp6sIng~lhTTloosevelt^foreign T)olicyr~ 2.

PRODUCE CHICAGO—(AP)—Produce ket" quotations: mar- Russians Leave Little In Business Districts For Germans to Use By Ernest G. Fisher BERLIN — (AP) — A picture of swift destruction and snail-like reconstruction lingers in the mind after a visit to trie southern sector of the German-Russian front. On a 2,500-mile tour by bus and railway behind the German lines, foreign correspondents had an opportunity to see a dozen war-torn lowns. Almost Invariably the central business section Ls razed by fire, and factories and public utility planu are burned and blasted or their machinery is removed. In most placet the residential sections, with th« exception of those bordering highways, are left intact. Women and children rummage through burned structures for wood to use as fuel against the rlgon of the Russian winter. In many towns, all community lift revolves around the public markets. Where the market buildings themselves have been destroyed, temporary stands or tables are set uu. The barter system prevails, a ptir of old )boots Is swapped for a gallon of milk or a sack of sunflower seed. Russian currency is spurned in the conquered area and German colnc are accepted reluctantly. Tobacco will buy almost anything on the market square. In larger transactions, wheat frequently servet as a medium of exchange. British Factory Firt Kills 47, Mostly Girls HUDDERSPIELD.
