Pitcher. addressed the Texas Telephone association, which is concluding its two-day convention. Service Already Rationed "Telephone service already is being rationed," Pitcher explained, pointing out that it is becoming increasingly hard for civilians to get service. '•The war is putting a strain on our facilities, and the strain is due to increase. The time may not be distant when civilians who, for example, use a telephone only for social purposes, may be required to relinquish their lines. May Install Public Phones "New communities, coming into being because of war industries or for other reasons, may-be able to obtain only sharply curtailed telephone service. In some instances, it may be necessary to install public pay telephones at convenient locations in order that one telehone may serve where twenty or more telephones would have been required under normal conditions." AH officers were re-elected at a luncheon meeting of the board of directors at noon. They are Oscar Burton of Tyler, .president; Sam H. Shutt of Sherman, first vice president; R. B. Fairly of Lubbock, second vice president; Jean Shotwell of Lufkin, treasurer, and George B. Bitler of Austin ; secretary. Workers' Education Held A Vital Need STATE COLLEGE, Pa.. Mar. 19 (U.PJ—This war may result in the awakening of industries to the need for training ' programs for their, workers to take advantage of new technical discoveries and processes, in the opinion of H. B. Northrup, director of mineral industries extension at Pennsylvania . State -College In Pennsylvania alone, Nortli- rup said, "not more than half a dozen", of the 500 or more large mineral industries have established an educational program as part of^their business set-up. "In times of peace and depression most -industries feel that courses for workers involve a needless expenditure," he said. This is an extremely short-sighted pokiy, for in times of emergency they can't get the training fast enough." " » Northrup declared that continuous training for workers would bring about a great improvement m the state's mineral industries as well as in other business enterprises. Fred Astaire Would Be Pretty Good On Foot BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 19. (/?>—If its footsoldiers Uncle Sam is looking for, he'll come up with a pretty good legger in Fred Astaire. Astaire, whose No. 212 was the 156th drawn in Tuesday's selective service lottery, has "a pair of very durable legs. He estimated he has danced 40,000 miles in 30 years stage and screen work. The hoofer will be 42 on May 10. He has a wife and three chif- dren. General MacArthur Is ^Consecutive Winner - FORT WORTH, March 39. (U.R) .

A Proioa of Central Foorfj Slum Riddance Good Business Bq FREDERICK WILLIAM United Press Staff Correspondent ATLANTA, Ga., Mar. 19—Amer- icu's first low-rent housing project, Techwood Homes, has become a must OH the itinerary of sightseers in Atlanta—as much so as Stone mountain' or ."Gone With the Wind" landmarks. This 604-family unit pioneered the slum-clearance and low-rent housing program which is providing new homes for more than 750,000 Americans. Today Techwood is only one o£ seven such low-rent housing projects Jr. Atlanta, built at a cost of §17,500,000. FuJly occupied, the 5,000 modern publicly-owned homes house almost seven per cent of the local population. Techwood families are proud of their homes, considering themselves the "blue bloods" of the nationwide low-rent housing program. Each year the settlement has a holiday "Techwood day," in which the occupants stage a street dance and carnival. Promote Recreation Program Of their own volition, Techwood families have improved their social and economic status in their new homes. A Tenant Association represents them in self-government. A cooperative buying club saved them $100 in a three-months trial period of group purchasing of farm products. Tenants have raised money for supplies and equipment to augment the recreation program for young and old. These occupants, from families which formerly numbered only 33 per cent of the city's population, yet had 56 per cent of the deaths, 69 per cent of tuberculosis, 59 per cent of arrests and 72 ner cent of juvenile delinquents, today have one of the most complete recreation programs in the city. Libraries, community buildings, movies and swimming pools are now the meeting grounds for these families. Youngsters no longer have to use vacant lots or traffic- cluttered streets for their:games. As a result, the death rate, number of arrests and'juvenile ca^e^ have taken a sudden drop. Techwood families have their own monthly newspaper, "The Techwood News," which carries all the local news. An athletic program provides tor league games with teams from other housing projects. "These families formerly, lived in Day Of Branding Iron Returns; Tire-Brand Is Latest Wrinkle ORAIVGE, March 19.' M>>— The day of the branding iron has returned, but it's the automobile tire and not the cow's flank that will get burned this tii'ie. Tax Assessor-Collector O. D. Butler registered his -(ire brand—a "B" in a circle— with the county clerk here. Butler said he will have a blacksmith make him a branding iron so that he can stamp the "Circle B" lightly on the sidewalls of his five tires. Turkey Production To Be On Higher Level AUSTIN, March 19. W—Turkey production in Texas will be on a higher level this year than last if producers carry out their intentions, the U. S. Agricultural Marketing service has announced. The 1941 season was unfavorable and intentions a year ago were not realized in terms of mature turkeys raised largely because of heavy death loss among poults. Farmers intend to buy or have custom hatched slightly more poults this year than last. State estimates of turkeys raised are not released at this time. The cool spring and frequent rains during the spring and summer in Texas were unfavorable for turkeys and death ]osses among poults were very heavy. Estimated number of-turkeys on Texas farms Jan. 1, 1942, was 875,000 birds compared with 983,000 birds a year earlier, which records'a reduction of 11 per cent. houses in which', nine out of ten were over 23 years old, some dating back as far as the Civil-war and four out of five lacked either inside bath or inside runnin" water or both. Tenants pay on a graded rent system, ranging from S8.60 to $25 per month. This includes units from two to six rooms. The families do a good share of the maintenance work required for the units and grounds." City officials are sold on the project. In pre-Housing Authority days, the city received approximately 538,000 per year in tax-s from these sites. Yet more than $1,175,000 was spent every year to protect life, health and property in these slum areas.

Look for the mdcnmt on the skit, or tissue Molybdenum Key Metal PITTSBURGH. Mar. 19. (U.PJ— Molybdenum, a metal long neglected, by American industry, is nov.' playing a leading role in steel- rnaking and is lessening this nation's dependence on foreign sources of steel-hardening mate- x-ials. The increasing use of molybdenum, according to Dr. A. A. Bates manager of the chemical and metalurghal departments of the Westmghouse Research- Laboratories, is freeing war-restricted alloying metals for production of shells tanks and guns. '•Molybdenum has been neglect"R ? r ,? any years '" Dr - Bates said. But this metal now is playing a leading role in steel-making as a result of industry's search for sub- .stitutes to replace metals formerly obtained abroad. "This country is rich in its resources of base metals—iron,, lead zinc, aluminum and copper" he explained. "But \ve have always had to depend upon supplies'from abroad -for nickel, chromium manganese, and tungsten, w-hich are used with iron to produce steel of strength, hardness, toughness or workability." Cheaper Than Former Alloys Nearly 90 per cent of the world's molybdenum is produced in the united States, according to Dr Bates. It has been slow in being put to use, however, because this country s stores of 'it were only discovered in recent years, and because o£ difficulties in learning to produce and heat-treat alloys containing the metal. To cope with the great demand of nickel steel for making-shells and armor, Westmghouse is now using molybdenum and chromium in place of nickel as the stren^th- ening agent in steel for shafts bolts, gears and other motor and generator parts. Replacing strategic tungsten in the manufacture of high-speed tool steel, Westinghouse engineers devised a method of making tools of molybdenum steel which contains ° n ^•? t iny P erc entage of tungsten. Molybdenum alloy, the engineers have found, is equal in quality to alloys foi-merly used and is also Jess expensive. DESERVES CONSIDERATION DALLAS, March 19.
