Home brewers, including the maker of a nationally famous brand, have stopped making draft beer altogether. Arthur Gillerl, president of an association representing 1,115 taverns and restaurants in metropolitan New York said the draft beer shortage is growing worse each week. ."If something doesn't happen we'll have a very bad summer," he said.

In response, came an admission from W. R. McComb, deputy administrator of the division, that there is no clear-cut policy. Stressing thai lhe division has no way of enforcing ils findings on employers, Mr. McComb said lhal its regional representatives merely could advise the employer ho should pay up; or if the employer refused, the division then could — and does — point out to employes their rights under the Wage and Hour Law. Many employers have suspected that the Wage-Hour Division more or less encourages or solicits complaints from employes who feel they have not been paid fully for the hours put in. Mr. McComb insists thai this is nol true. AH occasional ^ spot-check, required by law!hc Bays-,- may turn up -cases of irregularity, bul 80 to 90 per cent .of the disputes in which . mc- dialion is asked arc brought to the division's atenlion through signed complaints of dissatisfied em- ployes, he added. He conceded thai lhe division look no slcps lo protect an employer who might be the victim of "fealherbedding" practices thai made the contested so-called overtime work necessary. When Wage- Hour investigales and decides an employe is cnlillod lo back pay, the employer had better .-think twice before refusing lo pay off, for if he refuses lhe employe.is encouraged to lake his case lo.court. Bul Mr. McComb asserted that employes are not always found to be in lhe right. He recalled.an instance of a union seeking Wage- Hour findings in favor of its members, only to be lold by the' division that their demands were un- juslified. What's "Interstate Commerce" Fluidity of Wage-Hour policy can be traced to the broadened concept of what constitutes interstate commerce, as set forth by recent court decisions. Courts have stretched the meaning of "inter- slate commerce" lo include the term, "necessary lo interstate commerce," which can be run oul ' indefinitely to include almost any j business. 11 is on Ihcsc court deci- j sions lhal much of Wage-Hour's authority to intervene is ixiscd. Mr. McComb emphasized that Wage-Hour Division aclivitics are in line .with congressional enactment. It' undertakes to keep workers fully cognizant of their rights —and to help them establish them. Invitation to Truman North Arkansas folks would like for President Truman to be present for the dedication of Norfork Dam, the huge flood control and power project which soon will be completed.

Every one in the United Slates knew in the turbulent twenties that war was a ihing of the past, except maybe a few benighted individuals- who gave some time to skeleton military units such as lhe National Guard Miltonbergcr was one of these. Becomes Officer in 1923 In 1023. he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the 13 J lh Infantry Regiment of the Nebraska National Guard and beitan his long asociation with the outfit that he was ventually to lead in a victorious sweep to the Rhine. When Naiional Uuarn onus from Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska constituting the 35th Division, were federalized in December, 1940 and sent lo Camp Joseph T. Robinson, the 134th Regiment's commander was commanded by Lt. Col. Butler B. Miltonbergr. Th 35th was the Midwest's own Nicknamed the "Santa Fe" because its fighting men descended from pioneers who blazed the Santa Fe Trail, it had a valiant his- lory, dating back to Indian Wars, and a glorious tradition to fulfill. Its commanding general, until October. 1941, was Maj. Gen. Ralph B. rruman; and .another Truman, who had been a field artillery captain in (lie division during 'World War I, was its most distinguished "alumnus," being then a United Stales senator and destined later lo; he vice president and ultimately- president. ^Division Officially "Adopted 1 ' ! It was during'.,the Camp Robinson training period that General .then Colonel, '• Miltonbergcr was | adopted officially by the stale of jAikansas. Of course, he wasn'l adopted alone.'The entire 35th Division, having endeared itself to the Little Rock community, and lo the citizenship of the stale withal matter, was greeted, on its return from Louisiana maneuvers in the tall of 1941, with an announcement that the governor of Arkansas had issued a formal pro^uma- lion recognizing each and every one of them as an "adopted son " iou have the word of General Miltonbergcr for it that the men who constituted the 35th never forgot it, and never ceased to take pride in Arkansas' gesture of good will and affection. . Word War II Exploits When the division reached J; ranee for a second time, in a i sc -?i° nd -»^ ar ' the 134ih Regiment, with Miltonberger in command, was the firsl to attack. Its objective was ] St Lo — gateway to the German-hold French interior. After eight clays of bitter combat, the mission was completed. Assigned to Patton's Third Army, lhe division streaked across trance. On December 5, exactly live months after lhe initial land- ling m. France, the first shot was ;lirc:cl into Germany. Colonel Mil- ilonbcrger pulled lhe lanyard. The ..oth later helped stem the tide of von Rundsledfs surprise slab and then turn it in lhe bale of the Bulge. By March 11, the division was at the Rhine. A month there- alter came the cease fire order and nia, worn proudly by units cf ,the National Guard, which, woremis- played in showcases lining the wall, and remarked cripsy; "My job is to put the National Guard into shape as an efficient fighting force—it's the nation's firsl line of defense."

Won't they ever learn to stop meddling with our personal liberty? They had Prohibition a few years back and it caused more crime than we ever had. And the same thing will happen again. I was in some dry states while S wos in the army and they had more bootleggers there than there are legal dealers here. And despite what the drys say, the bootleggers want it dry. In fact, in dry Mississippi, the bootleggers teamed up with the preachers to try to repeal the state tax on illegal liquor. Tie that one if you can. Yours truly, A Soldier V- I?' 1 H ^
