A Thought for Today God is a spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.—John 4:24. * * * • Rural sounds exhilarate the spirit., and restore the tone of languid nature.-—William Cowper. No Overtime Pay on Bataan How many hours a week do the boys on Bataan work? If the Japs attack on Sunday do you think the American troops demand double time for overtime? Maybe some of MacArthur's men don’t like one of his sergeants. Do you believe they pull the trigger fewer times per hour because of that peeve? The answers come quick and easy. Do they come the same way in the battle of Detroit? On that vital production front we have rectntly witnessed these sickening spectacles: A great squabble about double time for Sunday work. Several slowdowns in a bomber parts plant because some of the men got sore at one of their fellow workers. When will we Americans awake to the tragic absurdity of the 40-hour week in wartime? Will we awake after the war is lost, when, as in France today, men will labor untold hours for a pittance that amounts to slavery under a foreign master? Many peacetime proponents of the short work week are now its loudest critics. War changes many things, and this, they rightly maintain, is one of them. When Congress voted the wage-hour law, the nation understood that one of its aims was a limitation on hours, to spread employment. The goal now is to get more—not less—work from every American. It may be contended that the 40-hour week is no restriction, that all an employer has to do Is to tell the men to work, say, 48 hours—and pay them time-and-a-half for the extra 8 hours. This 50 per cent pay increase adds to the manufacturing cost It means a bigger war bill which the public—all of ua—has to pay. And this in the hour of peril when we are all being told that we must sacrifice. The government urges the employer to work longer hours as a patriotic contribution, then insists that he pay a 50 per cent penalty on overtime. How do American workers feel about it? This much is certain. No truly American worker would quibble about time-and-a-half if hq knew his extra hours might help even up the battlfe on Bataan. The work week is between 55 and 60 hours in Great Britain. It is between 60 and 70 hour* In Germany. This is war. Every American must work as many hours as compatible with maximum efficiency. He should be paid for every hour, at his regular pay rate. The 40-hour week overtime penalties—like excess profits—are holding back the war effort. For the duration, they must go! Can't We Even Remodel a Ship? There is an old story of pre-Revolutlonary Russia in Czarist daya when inefficiency and fuddling reigned in the land. It seems that two revolutionists, who had been protesting against all this fumbling, were caugnt by the Okhrana and sentenced to be hanged. But when the sentence was to be carried out, the rope broke. They picked themselves up off the ground, and one murmured. "Poor Mother Russia! Here they can’t even hang a man properly!!” Well! Has it come to this in the United States, which preened itself on Its super-efficiency? Has it come to the point where w« can’t even remodel a ship at a peaceful dock In the heart of New York City without burning her to a shell? Military reverses may come to any army, including the best. The loss of the Normandie looks very much like a piece of tumble-footed, thoughtless stupidity. We shall have little room for that kind of business in trying days to come. __________ Deaths Local — MISS LUCRETIA BECKER Miss Lucretia Berker, member of one of the pioneer families of Dixon, daughter of the late Ezra and Amanda Hetler Becker, passed away about 3:30 o’clock Sunday afternoon at the Dixon public hospital, where she had been a patient since last October. Miss Becker was born in a large brick house, which stood on the site of the present Loveland Community House, on January 18, 1870. Her father for a number of years w’as one of the partners In the operation of the Becker & Underwood flour mill in this city. Her early nrse were not born yesterday.

Well, the sons of Eli will soon be doing it again. President Seymour of that venerable institution reveals Yale will require all students to take physical training to equip them for service in the armed forces. Of course there will be baseball, swimming, I tennis and other familiar sports, but after working up a good sweat at such "sissy” pastimes these fellow’s will be put to chopping wood, digging ditches, ! sawing wood and other "quick-Henry-the-arnica” activities. Sure, w'e’rc soft, mentally and physically, so it’s good to see Yale lead out In a campaign to make flabby muscles as unpatriotic as warbling the "Horst Wessel” song at a defense bond rally. Look at the Other Fellow Somehow there is a trait in human nature that enables the man wrho has fallen in the mud up to his hips to get a certain satisfaction out of contemplating the fellow w-ho has fallen in up to his neck. So if you’re worried about the tremendous federal debt get w’hat satisfaction you can out of this: The public debt today of the United States is slightly less than the annual national income. In Britain its twice the national income. That is the estimate of the Alexander Hamilton Institute. That means that we may emerge from the war with a debt of perhaps twice our national income, while Britain will then be in for a debt three or four times the national income of that country. Just how all this will end, even the most proficient economists don’t know’. About all We can be sure of is that no matter what kind of a hole we find ourselves In, we will have plenty of company. With the teachers in charge of sugar rationing, those who hoard will be given a lesson in subtraction. .iUi mi i uiwrnmmmmmmm* > SERIAL STORY ..... ffiMES i im 1 HENRY BELLAMANN • . ■ )J*YSMWT I»40 '■MC .A SCRVICX.

It wras late, and Parris had gone upstairs to study. She knew that Anna was in the kitchen waiting for her to go to bed. Tonight Anna would have to be patient. The room was warm, though the fixe was low now’. The sound of the wind rose and fell in long sighs and howls. Madame wanted to think. She shook her head. No, she didn’t want to think. She tried very hard to be reminiscent, but it w’as not successful. The uneventful years of her girlhood; e first marriage and the birth of Parris’ mother; the second marriage to the picturesque but unstable Franz von Eln; his death; her own first struggle; the ensuing poverty; the deaths of Parris’ father and mother—how many deaths one counted in a lifetime! —and these happiest years of all her life with Parris to w’atch over. • * • CHE called Anna. ^ Anna turned to the fire and raked the ashes from beneath the grate. "Yes, Madame?” "Well, now, Anna. I w»as Just wondering w’hat would become of you when—when I’m not here any more?” "Oh, Madame—” "Have you any money, Anna?” "Yes. Madame. I have saved everything. I—I shall—should be •bie to take care of myself. But who will lock after Parris?” Madame drew her shoulders together a little as though a cnill draft struck her. "He will have to look after himself, Anna. He’s « good boy—I suppose.” "Has Dr. Gordon said—?” "He gives me one year, or two." "Whet can I do for you, Madame, quickly?” "Nothing. Anna. Just go on as If »varything were the same as always. I don’t want Parris to be disturbed—* What was Parris like, deeper down than the suri ace? W’hat did , he dream of, look forward to? What did he desire? Parris was less lively. He talked a good deal but less gaily. He was —she hunted for a description— he was darker. Yes: that described him exactly. She wondered why. She must observe him a bit more closely. Maybe she had been neglecting him a little. It might have been better if Parris could have had less of her own "foreign” ways, and more of the Mitchell manner. She knew that people commented on her bearing and conduct and thought her peculiar and alien. Well, she had left a wide circle of freedom about him—mental elbowroom, just as she demanded, and had to have, for herself. • • • T ATER Anna laid her firm, shiny hand under Madame’s elbow, and the two women went slowly up the stairs. Parris came to his door, frowning against the light of the un­ shaded lamp Anna carried. Madame shook her head. "You are up late.” "I’m up late every night, Grand’mere—you know that.” "Well, well. But you must get your sleep. Good night.” He kissed her on both cheeks. "Good night Good night, Anna.” He sighed as he returned to his room. He was tired. Parris w’orked hard throughout the winter. He felt that he had moved completely into a new world. He did indeed look thin and a little pale by April. Dr. Tower, who consistently maintained an impersonal attitude tSward his pupil, noticed the changes. "Better ease up on your w’ork a little, young man.” "Oh, I’m quite all right, sir.” "You don’t look it Leave your notebooks today and get out somewhere. Why don’t you walk? Look up some of your friends—” Parris looked straight into Dr. Tower’s eyes for a moment. There was a barely perceptible softening? of the doctor’s hard, bright gaze. "What is it?” Then he added jocularly: "Have you no friends?” Parris did not smile. "No, sir,” he said simply. Dr. Tower flushed a little, w’hether with embarrassment or annoyance at the turn of the conversation, Pams did not know. Dr. Tow’er looked out of the window’. "You get used to it.” Parris did not reply to this. Dr. Tower looked back after a moment and went on, almost angrily: "Anyway, there is nobody around here for you. You seem te have a mind—hope I'm not mistaken about it; I d hate to waste my time.” "I used to have some pretty good friends.” There was a kind of protest in his voice. "Well—you ought not to live too much to yourself.” Dr. Tower spoke more gently. "Go on out today and look up somebody. Knock aosund a little.” He slapped the noteboks on the table. "Forget this and your piano for a couple of days, cut classes, get some air.” "All right, sir, I wilL Thank you.” • • • AS he came in sight of the Liv^ ingstone house he saw Drake coming out of the drive. He had Molly, a fat old mare belonging to Mrs. Livingstone, hitched to a shiny new buggy. "Hey! Hey, Drake!” Drake was about to turn in the other direction, when he heard him. He stopped. "Where you going?” "Nowhere. Just trying the new buggy. Say, how you been? What all you been doing?” Parris took a deep breath. "Oh, working hard.” "Why aren't you in school today?” "No classes today. Dr. Tower sent me out, said I needed—said I needed to see you.” "Aw, now!” "Almost. Said I better go out and see some of my friends.” "Let’s go to the country. How about it?” Drake looked pleased. Parris settled back. The new buggy had rubber tires and rolled softly along the macadamized street. "How’a Louise, Drake?” Drake grinned. ‘Tine. How's Cassie?” "I don’t know.” "Say! Do you mean to sit there and tell me you ain't done anything about her yet?” "Well,” Parris felt that he ought to justify himself somehow for something—he was not quite sure for what. He swallowed hard. "Well, I don’t ever see her.” "I bet I’d find a way. Say, boy, Cassie Tower is—well—well, I'd see her in spite of her old man. What does he do, keep her locked up?” "I see her on the porch once in a while, but I’m kind of afraid to stop.” As Drake talked Parris felt his spirits rise. There was a contagion in Drake’s exuberance. A tension of excitement arose in his throat. He talked, too, more and more freely. It was a fine feeling to have a friend—an especially fine feeling to discover that Drake was really his friend as much now as ever. (To Be Continued) a devoted and active member of St. Luke's Episcopal church. Surviving are tw’o brothers. Harry S. of this city and Nate of Chicago. Funeral services will be held at the Staples funeral home Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. Fr. Norman Burke of St. Luke’s Episcopal church officiating and interment will be in Oakwood. MISS CLARA C. HANSEN Miss Clara C. Hansen, resident of the vicinity of Dixon for the past 66 years, passed away at 11 o'clock last night at the Dixon public hospital after an illness of long duration. Miss Hansen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, June 22, 1871 and at the age of two years came to the United States with her parents, the family settling in Michigan. Later they came to the vicinity of Dixon where she had r'nee lived, and for many years occupied the residence opposite the entrance to the Dixon Country club. Her parents, two sisters and four brothers preceded her in death. Surviving ire two brothers. Frank of Chicago and Dan of Pascagoula, Miss., together with several nieces and nephews. Fu- neial arrangements had not been completed today and will be announced later. HARVEY EGGERICKS Harvey Eggericks, 84, passed away at his home, 406 Jackson avenue, at 7:45 o’clock Sunday morning.

They did not have enough trucks to bring all the material up as far as Chungking in time, so they rallied every facility at the Burma end of the road and ran the goods up to caches in the mountains of their Yunnan province. The wharves are fairly w’ell cleaned up now. Loss of the Burma road will therefore not be immediately disastrous to the Chinese cause. It will not force Chiang Kai-Shek into a separate peace. Even the long range effects are problematical. Most of the lease- lend goods going up the Burma Road has been small arms, ammunition, too's, parts and such material as could be carried in trucks. Planes may still be flown in from India, via other routes. Mr. and Mrs. Orten Arbogast W’ere callers in the Ray Reinert home in Dixon Thursday evening.

If it is, it is one without facilities, supplies, docks of any consequence, warehouses, repair stations, oil storage and railroads and therefore the emptiest Singapore and the cheapest that was ever built. Ordinarily a good harbor, without facilities, is called an anchorage. It is possible the United Nations have been trying to build up an air base there. Airplane facilities can be installed much more rapidly. Gas storage facilities and plane repair shops may have been set up there. But its only land connection with the populated section of Australia is a motor road back through the wilds of Brisbane. It is bad enough for us to be losing really important positions in the Far East. This is no time to start losing imaginary ones. “There may be a rubber shortage, Judge, but this guy’s k - checks are still bouncing 1“ TIMETABLE Chicago <& Northwestern Railway Company Central Standard Time Effective Sunday, Jan. 25th, 1942, at 12:01 A.

ELLA THORSHEIM Oregon, Feb. 23 — Mrs. Ella Thorsheim, 75, died Saturday morning in her home after an extended illness. She was born July 16, 1866 in Stavanger, Norway and is survived by her husband, John, and tw’o daughters, Mrs. Gertrude Colson, who resides near Dixon, and Mrs. Blanche Weingert, Oregon. Funeral services were held today at 2 p. m. in the Farrell mortuary. The Rev. J. E. Dale of St. Paul's Lutheran church officiated and burial was in Riverview cemetery. ISAAC C. ETNYRE Byron, Feb. 23—Isaac C. Etnyre, who died Tuesday at Sherman hospital, Elgin, was buried in Adeline cemetery. He was the son of Isaac and Mary Etnyre and was born April 30, 1872, on a farm near Adeline. He was married to Miss Margaret Fisher of Racine, Wis., who died Oct. 18, 1907. He has been an employe of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul railroad many years, and lived in Elgin. E. M. Etnyre of Leaf River is the only survivor. Unmistakable signs are ac- cumlating to indicate the Japs are preparing a spring attack on Stalin’s back door in Siberia. Men and material seem headed for the Amur river front for what would be an obvious and simple drive to isolate Vladivostok. Push ing on from the Manchurian border down to the sea, the Japs could cut Stalin’s communications with his Pacific stronghold. Vlad ivostok itself then might be at tacked from the sea and pinched out. No one ever knows what the Russians have anywliere. Their of ficial grapevine reports that they have kept 500,000 troops on the line to match an equal number of Japanese. Authorities here can only hope this is true. Food authorities here have counted up sugar stocks and con' elude these are sufficient to fur nish 99 pounds to everyone in this country this year. The average consumption for eight years from 1932 to 1940 W’as 103 pounds so the amount available is only 4 pounds less than normal. (They do not count last year because industrial buying and hoarding was evident then.) But w’hether you will get your 99 pounds this year is a question. Much depends on your neighbor. While stocks are almost adequate, hoarding continues. Rationing is inevitable, solely because of demand and not because of inadequate supply. JAMES A. WALKER (Telegraph Special Service) Rochelle, Feb. 23—The funeral of James A. Walker, 333 North 12th street, W’ho passed aw’ay at the Lincoln hospital Saturday morning, the result of a stroke he had suffered Monday and for treatment of which he was admitted to the hospital Tuesday, will be held at 2:00 o’clock tomorrow afternoon at the home and at 2:30 o'clock at the Methodist church.

Afghanistan (between India, Iran and Siberia) has been announced without explanation. That lonely nation of 12,000,000 people which specializes in 120 degree heat in summer has become a center of axis intrigue, with Germans. Japs and Italians joining in. Their activity at Kabul has become so strong as to require attention of the United Nations. Here again is disclosed the w’orld-widemng horizon of axis conquest. The mere fact that Hitler considers Afghanistan worth going after is proof enough of what India is facing, as well as Iran. The Lady Perkins was upset by rumors that she had notified New York friends of impending retirement. Her friends here say the rumors did not come from her but possibly from someone outside her department who wants her job. The suggestion, how’ever, came from an anonymous congressman.

Has Three Calls The Community fire truck was called to the farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Fay Reitzel on Saturday morning at 6:30. The fire had gained such a start that the company could do no good and the 10 room house burned to the ground. Mr. Reitzel had built his fires and went to the bam to do his chores, leaving his wife and small son in bed. A passing neighbor seen the fire and rushed in and helped Mrs. Reitzel and baby out of the burning house.

Tell your druggist to sell you a bottle of Creomulsion with the understanding you must like the way it quickly allays the cough or you axe to have your money back. CREOMULSION for Coughs, Chest Colds, Bronchitis CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCHES "Mind” was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, on Sunday, February 22nd. The Golden Text was, "The Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed’’ (I Samuel 2: 3). Among the citations which comprised the Lesson-Sermon was the following from the Bible: "Ye shall not therefore oppress one another: but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the Lord your God. Wherefore ' ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety” (Lev. 25: 17,18). The Lesson-Sermon also included the following passages from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures,” by Mary Baker Eddy: "The history of our country, like all history, illustrates tne might of Mind, and shows human power to be proportionate to its embodiment of ri^ht thinking. The despotic tendencies, inherent in mortal mind and always germinating in new forms of tyranny, must be rooted out through the action of the divine Mind. God has built a higher platform of human rights, and He has built it on diviner claims” (pp. 225, 226). The New Brunswick provincial sardine catch for 1939 amounted to 315.400 barrels. Union Electric and President Convicted of Corrupt Practices St. Louis, Feb. 23—(API — Union Electric Company and its former president, Louis H. Egan, were convicted yesterday of violating the corrupt practices section of the federal utilities holding company act. The government charged that a fund of $591,000 was raised several years prior to 1938 for political contribution* to candidates, office holder» and politicians. The defense contended that neither Egan nor the company knew of the fund, authorized it nor participated in ita distribution. Maximum penalty possible for the company is a $10,000 find on each of eight counts, and for Egan is a two year prison term and a $10,000 fine. Federal Judge George H. Moore set sentencing for February 27. Union Electric is a subsidiary of North American and operates in Missouri, Illinoia and Iowa.
