First Lieutenant

Son of Mr. and Mn. Ralph A. San­

torelli Receives Promotion and Pres­

idential Citation for Achievements

With the 9th Air Force.

Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Santorelli of

Brewster, N. Y., have received a let­

ter from their son, Lieut. Anthony A.

Santorelli, of the 76th Troop Carrier

Squadron of the Ninth Air Force, who

has been overseas for a year, in which

he tells of his promotion to the rank

of first lieutenant as of Nov. 6. On

Thanksgiving Day, Mrs. Santorelli re­

group in July. He also has the Oak

Leaf Cluster and a Presidential Cita­


The letter accompanying the Air

Medal under date of July 6, stated

that the Air Medal had been awarded

aa of June 26 to this group "in rec­

ognition of meritorious achievement

•while participating in aerial flights in

the Europeon theatre of operations

during the period from November 4,

IMS, to July 1, 1944."

"As Troop Carrier crew members,

these individuals meritoriously cli­

maxed a most successful program of

intensive, specialised training and

joint maneuvers with airborne units

in aerial nights by their superb per­

formance in vital sorties flown during

the initial Troop Carrier phases of

the invasion of the European conti­


"The magnificent spirit and enthus­

iasm displayed by these individuals,,

combined with skill, courage and de­

votion to duty, is reflected in their

brilliant operation of unarmed and

unarmored Troop Carrier aircraft at

minimum altitudes and air speeds, in

unfavorable weather conditions, over

water, and into the face of vigorous

enemy positions, with no possibility

of employing evasive action, to spear­

head the Allied invasion of the conti­

nent and to support air and ground

forces in the critical period ' which

followed. Their respective duty as­

signments were performed in such an

admirable manner as to produce ex­

ceptional results in. the greatest and

most successful airborne operation in

the history of world aviation. By com­

mand of Brigadier General Williams;

James B. Duke, Jr., Colonel OSC,

Chief of Staff."

Christmas Gifts For

Servicemen in Hospitals

By action of the National Executive

Committees of The American Legion

and The American Legion Auxiliary

at Chicago, Sept. 17th, 1944, a plan

was approved whereby a 13 weeks ser­

ies of Eddie Cantor Broadcasts will

urge, donations of Christmas gift box­

es to Legion Posts and Auxiliary Units

on the part of the public, with deliv­

ery of the gifts to be made by The

American Legion and Auxiliary to the

men and women in Army and Navy

Station Hospitals, in Convalescent

Centers and in Veterans' Administra­

tions shortly before or on Christmas

Day, 1944.

Listeners will be urged to purchase

gift boxes for wounded, disabled -or

sick servicemen and women in hospi­

tals, these to be turned over to Legion

Posts and Units for distribution at

Christmas time. Gifts purchased in

communities will be distributed as

close to home as possible, with sur­

plus redirected to next closest hospi­

tal so that none will be without a gift


It is suggested that Posts urge dis­

plays by their local mechants stress­

ing "wanted" items by men and wo­

men in hospitals.

It is planned to provide special

Christmas message cards from the

National Commander and National

President to be affixed to each gift

box, in addition to special Legion and

Auxiliary Christmas stickers. Those

donors of gift boxes who desire to place

a personal card in the box should be

allowed to do so. Many individuals

may desire to be thus personally iden­

tified as a donor of a box whereby the

serviceman or woman recipient can

properly acknowledge the present af­

ter Christmas.

Suggested list of gifts include sta­

tionery and 6tamps, razor blades,

tooth paste, hair tonic, soaps, cigar­

ettes, chewing gum, skating caps,

warm pajamas, light wool buttoned

sweaters, sewing kits and toilet kits.

All persons who wish to send a gift

to the wounded and disabled are re­

quested to leave their packages at the

office of the Legion Service Officer

Daniel B. Brandon, Main Street, Brew­

ster, N. Y., where they will be retain­

ed until final distribution is made

later on.

Mrs. Merrick Buys

Part of Douglas Farm

On Saturday James M. Lindsay, real

estate broker of 522 Fifth Avenue,

who has specialized in farm estate in

this section, announced the sale of

about 200 acres of Spring Farm, the

dairy farm of the late Elizabeth Doug­

las which comprised about 400 acres,

to Mrs. Mildred H. Merrick, Mr. and

Mrs. Richard Merrick formerly oper­

ated Grass Valley Farm which is now

the property of George M. Spindler.

The portion of the Douglas farm

conveyed to the new owner by Mrs.

Archibald Douglas, is well known as a

farmer's farm because of its high pro­

ductivity. Before Miss Douglas pur­

chased the property it was known as

the Andrew Stock farm. There is a

fine residence on the place and a com­

plete set of barns and out-buildings.


Negro Club Develops

Ludingtonville Site

Buys Former Lewis Merrit Estate Near

Stump Pond for Private Country


A thirty-and-a-half-acre tract on

Stump Pond, near Ludingtonville,

Town of Kent, Putnam County, N. Y.,

has been purchased by the Lake Drew

Country Club, Inc., for development

as a country club for Negroes, accord­

ing to a recent announcement in the

New York Herald Tribune. The land,

in a scenic region of one of this state's

most historic counties, was the home

of the late Lewis H. Merritt, for many

years operator of a gristmill there.

The purchase price was $25,000.

Eardlie John, an Assistant Cor­

poration Counsel, president of the

Lake Drew Country Club, Inc., is said

to have confirmed the transaction. He

said that there are nine members of

the corporation, most of them profes­

sional men, and that improvements

have been under way since the pur­

chase was completed some weeks ago.

A 24-room hotel, built last spring

by the former owners who opened it

briefly as a summer resort, is being

renovated with a library, recreation

room and other additions. There is a

bar in the basement. By next May

15, when the club will be opened, there

will be tennis and badminton courts,

thirty boats and swimming and fish­

ing facilities for members, according

to reports. He emphasized that the

club, probably the first Negro country

club in this section, will not be open

to the public. Thirty families prob­

ably will be included in th? member­

ship, he said.

This will be the first Negro country

club in New York, in the opinion of

the purchasers and of real estate of­


The land was bought from the Drew

Lake Estates, Inc., which is headed

by S. A. Anthony, contractor. Charles

Finkelstein was his attorney in the


Stump Pond identified as Drew

Lake on same maps, is four miles long

and three miles wide. There are many

homes on its shore line, most of them

year-round residences. The new coun­

try club has several small estates ad­

joining it. \

Mr. John said that, counting prop­

erty under water, the tract is 45 acres.

Improvements will cost between $15,-

000 and $20,000, he estimated. In ad­

dition to the two-story frame hotel

building, there also is the former Mer­

ritt residence, a six-room house which

was remodeled recently, on the prop­

"Are You At War"?

Then Buy War Bonds

Putnam County Men Are Fighting

That You May Enjoy Life Here. Will

You Back Them With a War Bond?

Telephone Service To

Cover More Territory

Post-War Extension of lines of Com­

munication Are to be Worked Out

By Leading Telephone Companies.

The news that Tokyo has been

bombed in successive nights is heart­

ening. The job in the Pacific is just

getting underway. It is a terrific task.

The Japs are no pushover—don't fool

yourself, mister. Millions upon mil­

lions of fanatical Japs are prepared

to die for their country. Every Ameri­

can soldier, sailor and marine in the

Pacific theatre knows that he has a

tough fight on his hands. You cant

tell them their war is over! Even as

you read these words, American men,

possibly Putnam County boys are dy­

ing in the fight against Japan. Look

into your heart and ask yourself hon­

estly: "Have I stopped fighting? Have

I stopped buying War Bonds because

I think the war is about over?" You­

're not a quitter; your answer is "No!"

It is costing billons of dollars a

month to fight the Japs. The fight in

the Pacific calls for a specialized type

of equipment. B-29 bombers that cost

$600,000 in war bonds; N-4 tanks with

bull dozer plades that cost $67,417;

"alligators" that cost $30,000; millions

of gallons of gasoline. We need more

and costlier equipment than any war

has ever called for. And that's the rea­

son for the 6th War Loan Drive. Just

as long as a single Japanese aims a

gun at our men—we must continue to

buy War Bonds.

We're out to get Japan in the 6th

War Loan Drive. Your country is

still at war—are you?

With the Putnam County drive well

under way, two members of the Put­

nam Lake Blue Star Brigade have al­

ready qualified as 2nd Lieutenants by

selling War Bonds to at least ten dif­

ferent persons. One of these is Mr.

Max Cherne, father of Leo Cherne,

noted radio commentator. Mr.

Cherne's younger son, Jack, is in the

U. S. Army Air Corps. The other

Brigadier to win the coveted decora­

tion is Mr. Daniel O'Connor to whom

decorations are not new. Mr. O'Con-

nor won a citation and medal for

I bravery In 1926 when, as a guard dur-

jing the outbreak at the Tombs Prison,

.he was shot and seriously wounded.

His son, Corporal Dan O'Connor, Jr.,

Is in the U. S. Army. His son-in-law,

JBob McLaren, is serving with the U.

S. Navy.

Yes, we must buy more gasoline,

more tanks, more ships, more planes

by buying more War Bonds. Help to

shorten the road to Tokyo. Let's echo

the cry—"On to Tokyo" with Bonds.

Our boys won't quit until, they have

reached their goal. Let's not stop

buying bonds until we've reached ours.

A joint committee of representatives

of Bell and independent Operating

Telephone Companies throughout the

United states has been formed to ad­

vance the nation-wide postwar pro­

grams which the various telephone

companies have been working on in­

dividually to extend and improve farm

telephone service, it was announced


Co-chairmen of the committee are

John P. Boylan, President of the

United States Independent Telephone

Association, the national organization

of the thousands of independent tele­

phone companies, and Keith S. Mc-

Hugh, Vice President of the Ameri­

can Telephone and Telegraph Com­

pany, representing the Bell Operating


"Rural telephone service is more

highly developed in this country, un­

der the American system of private

enterprise, than in any other country

in the world," Mr. Boylan and Mr. Mc-

Hugh said today in a statement issued

by them for the committee. "How­

ever, it Is by no means as highly de­

veloped as we In the industry want to

see it, and the industry intends to do

everything in its power to provide

more service, and better service, at a

cost which the farmer can afford.

"Since operating telephone compan­

ies throughout the whole country have

been working on this problem, a rep­

resentative joint committee has been

formed consisting of a number of their

most experienced officials. We believe

that the application of new facilities

and methods which were under de­

velopment by the industry before the

demands of war interrupted our re­

search and construction program will

help to bring telephone service to

many new farm customers. As soon

as war demands are reduced, we pro­

pose to resume and expand our re­

search effort and, along with it, the

Intensive program for extending farm

service which was being carried on

before the outbreak of hostilities.

"Over one-half million miles of tele­

phone pole lines serving rural areas

have already been built so that more

than two-thirds of all rural families

in the United States can be served

from existing lines. Since 1935 more

than 500,000 additional families in

rural areas have become telephone

subscribers—an Increase of 35 per

cent.' One of the major objectives is

to continue this upward trend by mak­

ing the service over existing lines in­

creasingly valuable and attractive.

This the industry Intends to do to the

limit of its ability.

"A second major objective is to ex­

tend service at reasonable cost to fam­

ilies not now reached by existing lines.

Telephone industry research- in the

last several years has successfully de­

veloped new construction materials

and methods which substantially low­

er the cost of building wire lines to

areas not previously reached. In ad­

dition, work was started by the in­

dustry in 1938 to develop a practical

system of transmitting telephone con­

versations over electric power lines. A

similar system can be used over tele­

phone lines to increase their capacity.

This so-called rural carrier system

transmits a very high frequency cur­

rent over the wires. From 1940 on,

experiments with this system for tele­

phone service over rural power lines

were carried forward in a cooperative

effort of Bell Telephone Labora­

tories and the Rural Electrification

Administration. Before this work was

interrupted by the war, it was clear

that a suitable system of this kind

could be produced.

"One practical effect of these de­

velopments is to make it physically

possible to furnish telephone service

wherever there are rural power lines

and no telephone lines. The telephone

companies plan, in cooperation with

RE.A. cooperatives and with power

companies serving rural territory, to

determine the full extent to which

rural carrier telephone service can be

used economically and effectively.

"The telephone companies also plan

to study the possible application of

microwave radio systems to rural

telephone service and to make use of

this and any other new methods which

will be helpful in serving the farmer."

no Intention of rescinding arrange­

ments for converting Fort Slocum In­

to a rehabilitation center for the im­

prisonment of soldiers who violate the

Articles of War.

"Fort Slocum," Mr. Stimson wrote,

"was selected as a site for the Second

Service Command's rehabilitation cen­

ter only after thorough consideration.

The facilities there are ideally suited

for the purpose and can be utilised

with economy and efficiency.

"In addition, the natural barrier of

a quarter mile of water separating it

from the mainland will" augment the

security measures which the Second

Service Command will provide.

"Rehabilitation centers do not con­

stitute a threat to near-by communi­

ties. There are at present six in the

country, none of which is as isolated

as Fort Slocum.

"Our experience has proved that

adjacent communities experience no

inconvenience and in fact are scarcely

aware of the presence of a rehabili­

tation center on the post. I therefore

ask you to accept our judgment, which

is based on experience, rather than to

anticipate difficulties which I assuro

you will not materialize."

The communication came in re­

sponse to a telegram sent Nov. 21 by

Mr. Church and the heads of six near­

by communities. This telegram call­

ed the rehabilitation center a "peni­

tentiary" and said it would be a threat

to the security and peace of mind of

all residents In the area. Monday

Red Cross Did Not

Sell Blood Plasma

Red Cross Chairman Basil O'Connor

recently issued the following statement:

"It has been called to our attention

that rumors alleging that Red Cross

blood plasma Is being sold to soldiers

and sailors are being circulated thruout

the United States. These rumors

are vicious lies and apparently are

circulated by persons who wish to deprive

our fighting men of life-saving


"The blood which each week more

than 100,000 patriotic Americans give

to the Red Cross Is turned over to the

Army and Navy and processed * by

them into blood plasma, or flown as

refrigerated whole blood to Europe and

the Pacific.

"Pull possession and control of the

blood plasma passes into the hands of

the Army and Navy when the Red

Cross ships it from its centers to processing

laboratories. The Army and

Navy, as Is well known, administer

this blood plasma or whole blood to

wounded soldiers and sailors without

any charge. Persons circulating such

rumors should be reported to the Federal

Bureau of Investigation."

" As of November 1944, the Red Cross

Blood Donor Service has supplied over

ten million pints of blood to the laboratories

that prepare dried plasma and

serum albumin for the Army and

Navy. In addition to this, the whole

blood project which has recently been

inaugurated in several Blood Donor

Centers is sending whole blood by airplane

directly from the donors In this

country to the battlefields.

Mrs. Leslie P. Dodge, Chairman of

the Blood Donor Service for Putnam

County, with Mrs. Harold A. Knapp

of Brewster recently attended a regional

meeting of the Red Cross Blood

Donor Service In New York City at

which many of the practical problems

of obtaining blood to meet the ever

increasing need were discussed. Lt.

Cord Meyer whose article on this subject

appeared in a recent Issue of the

Atlantic Monthly magazine spoke at

this meeting, as well as Mr. Lamont

and Mrs. Vanderbilt Webb of the Red

Cross. Mrs. Dodge has announced that

all persons having type O blood needed

for the whole-blood program newly

inaugurated will be welcome at any

time at the Blood Donor Center In

New York City and will be taken immediately,

without appointment and

without waiting, if they wish to go

there. Mrs. Dodge says that the next

visit of the Mobile Unit to Putnam

County will not be before next summer

or early fall but that those who

wish to donate blood in the meantime

(the same person can donate blood

approximately every four months) can,

if they wish, make appointments at

the New York Center or can go to

RidgefteM, Conn., when the Mobile

Unit calls there In January. Transportation

for those from this county

who wish to go to Rldgefleld can be

provided by the Red Cross Motor

Corps, if persons so desiring will notify

Mrs. Dodge in time tor arrangements

to be made. Many of our Putnam

County people also donate blood

at Peeksklll, Mrs. Dodge stated. At

the last visit of the Mobile Unit to

Putnam County 867 pints of blood

were donated, which more than met

the quota which had been fixed for this


Blood Donor Service has been of

extraordinary value in saving lives.

Much credit Is to be given all those

who have whole heartedly cooperated

in this vital war effort

For New Year's Eve

John P. O'Connell, Chairman of the

Although the Army Ordnance 37mm

antitank gun has been largely replaced

by the more powerful 57-mm

gun, it Is still a versatile and useful

weapon—particularly in jungle .warfare

where the going Is rough. The

87 can be carried in a jeep or by four

men to places where a 57 could not

be emplaced.

In the fighting for Saipan, the 37mm

gun was very effective in piercing

the light armor of Japanese tanks. It

was also effective against personnel,

machine gun nests, and pill boxes. At

the heights of the Salpan engagement,

a 37-mm gun knocked out two machine

gun nests at a range of 300

yards within a few minutes after

opening fire on them.

Vehicle performance reports from

the European Theatre stress the power

and effectiveness of the Army Ordnance

3" Gun Motor Carriage, M10

tank destroyer. In one Instance, a

solitary M10 encountered three German

Panther tanks on a curve of a

narrow hedge-bordered road. In the

engagement which followed, the M10

knocked out the three Panthers unassisted.

Writing of Army Ordnance, Ernie

Pyle said: "This Is not a war of ammunition,

tanks, guns and trucks alone.

It Is as much a war of replenishing

spare parts to keep them In combat as

lt Is a war of major equipment A

thousand tanks or a thousand motor

trucks are as good as no tanks nor

trucks if the butterfly valve, no larger

than a quarter. Is missing from the

carburetor of each of them. The gasket

that leaks, the fan belt that breaks,

the nut that la lost, the distributor

point that falls or the bearing that

burns out will delay OI Joe on the

road to Berlin, if he hasn't got another,

just as much as if he dldnt have a

vehicle In which to start."

to slow down. But aa the car stopped

beside him she was a trifle uneasy.

She had never before picked up a

hitchhiker. She scanned his face as

he tugged at the door handle and a

measure of confidence returned. He

was lean and brown and hard and

reminded her of her brother; he

wore overseas ribbons, too.

The lieutenant brought into the

comfortable coupe the not unpleasant

odor of a mild soap and good

tobacco and also, to Madeline's

astonishment, a casual intimacy

that did nothing to improve her


Re sat half-facing her, with one

arm thrown over the back of the

seat and his fingers played gently

with the collar of her polo coat.

She turned toward him reprovingly

and saw that his eyes had missed

nothing — from the tight roll of

chestnut hair clear down to her slender


"You'll do," he decided, catching

her glance.

Madeline blushed. "Thanks. I was

expecting a whistle," she said tartly.

"You'd rate a whistle if you'd take

off those shell-rimmed cheaters,

fluff out that hair-do into something

modern and slip into a jersey that

should be more becoming than that

gunny sack you're wearing," he shot

back at her.

Madeline clamped her Jaws tightly

to retain control of herself, then

"She wam'ff"

asked: "You're going to Middleton?"

He nodded. "And I would that I

were not."

"Home to a wife and children?"

Madeline chided.

"An obligation, yes, but not that

kind." He stared at the road ahead.

There was silence for a minute before

he explained:

"It's a long story, Beautiful. Maybe

I'd have been better oft* in the

long run if the Jerries had got me.

This fellow saved my life the first

day out. I was a wise guy, see, a

smart aleck, but he shoved me into

a hole when those MEs started coming

over. I made that right a little

later by drilling a sniper who had

his bead set on him. So we got to be

buddies - the best kind. WeU, I

thought his sister must be all right,

too—" He hesitated and Madeline

gave him a look of encouragement.

"She wasn't?"

The lieutenant closed his eyes

and frowned. "You can judge for

yourself. I get a letter from this

girl, thanking me for saving her

brother's life. Then our outfit splits

up and my buddy and I are separated.

I don't find out anything about

her from him but I answer her letter

and away we go. Well, at first

she's amusing. Then she begins to

write about our 'glittering tanks that

charged into battle like avenging

angels of death.' Even that sounded

kind of cute, but after a while everything

gets daffy. I don't get it at


"No?" Madeline prompted, her

twinkling eyes glued to the road.

"No. She wrote about the night

having a thousand eyes that

watched over me. I was her knighterrant

and she was my ladylove.

Imagine it!"

Madeline smiled. "You've no appreciation

of romance. Besides, she

probably thought it would be good

for your morale."

"Nuts! Jerries on the run is all

my morale needs." They were entering

the town and he leaned toward

her eagerly. "Listen, Beautiful, I

won't even call up this gal with the

fantastic ideas if you'll give me a


Madeline stopped the car at the

curb and faced him with severity.

"But Lieutenant Milton — Lieutenant

James Milton — my brother

never described you as a person who

would run out on anyone."

She waited expectantly, but no

astonishment was evident. Only a

good-natured grin.

"O. K., Mary, we're even now,"

he said softly. "You knew me when

you picked me up. But those initials

M. S. on your car door were a dead

giveaway, too. So forget all I said

about your letters. How about tonight?"

Madeline laughed. "It's all right

but first you'll have to speak to my

eleven-year-old sister. Her name is

Feed Situation Improved

The 1944 season was the eighth consecutive

year of generally favorable

weather for crop production. This has

•been a great boost to our armed forces,

our allies, and our civilian population.

It has enabled us to shorten the war,

because abundant food is both a

weapon of defense and offense.

In view of the record corn crop and

a decline of about 13 per cent in grain

consuming animals from 1944 levels,

feed supplies appear ample for dairy

and poultry producers.

Total feed concentrate supplies for

1944-45 will be somewhat smaller In

volume than in 1943-44, but will be

the third largest on record. However,

the amount of grain available for each

animal unit is increased, mainly because

of the decrease In livestock

numbers since last year.

Selling Milk By Classified Plan

Classification of the price paid for

milk according to its use and the resulting

blended price to farmers is often

misunderstood. Use of the classified-price

plan Is now required by all

dealers in the New York market.

Many dealers In the smaller markets

continue to buy on the old fiat-price

system, but competition from country

plants approved for New York city

usually results in their paying producers

approximately the New York

blended price.

Consumers buying pasturized milk

are inclined to believe that farmers receipts

are based on the price they pay

for fluid milk. Such Is not the case,

because farmers selling to the New

York market must take the blended

price, and even those selling to the

smaller dealers in other sections rarely

get more than the blended price

even though all the dealer's milk may

go for fluid use.

Farmers, as a rule, are satisfied with

the classified plan although they are

Inclined to criticize, with some Justitificatlon.^he

complexity of the present

plan and the pricing of some of

the many different classes of milk.

Under a classified-price plan, dealers

calculate the amount of milk sold

in each of several uses—fluid milk,

cream, butter, cheese, etc. Prices are

specified for each use, based on the

national market for use in manufactured

dairy products, and taking into

account health-inspection requirements

and extra cost of producing a

near-by supply for fluid milk and

cream. The payment for any month's

supply of milk is then obtained by

multiplying the amount of milk in

each use by its respective class price,

and adding these sub-totals to get the

total amount due. Under the orders,

comprehensive audits are made to

check reports on the use made of milk.

One of the chief advantages of the

classified-price plan is that for milk

in each use, all dealers pay the same

price. Competition among dealers becomes

a matter of efficiency of operations,

with identical costs for milk,

rather than competition in buying

milk as cheaply as possible. If the various

classes are priced correctly, dealers

under this plan will be ready to

accept all the milk delivered by all

their patrons. In the flush season,

producers will not be cut off from their

market or forced to hold back part of

their production. Another advantage

of the classified price plan is that the

excess supply above fluid needs will be

disposed of an an orderely way in the

country and will not disrupt the fluid

market in the city.

Must" Ships

Must Have Men

Faced with the need for 8,000 men

a month to sail the ships of the

world's largest merchant marine fleet

and deliver the goods of war, the

United States Maritime Service this

week will be working under a nationwide

priority of the War Manpower

Commission. In announcing the certification

of priority, Commodore Telfair

Knight, Assistant Deputy Administrator

for Training, explained:

. "Expanding operations in the Pacific

have more than tripled the delivery

job of our Merchant Marine. Because

of the distances involved about three

times the number of merchant ships

are needed to deliver the same firepower

to the Pacific as were needed

to deliver the goods to Europe. Each

advance In the Pacific means an additional

'must' delivery assignment for

our merchant fleet."

Those "must" ships must have men.

Men 17 to 50 can volunteer. No experience

is necessary. If experienced,

men go to sea immediately. If inexperienced,

men are given training and

subsequent sea duty as radio operators,

deck and engine seamen, purser-hospital

corpsmen and cooks. Any

man 18 to 26 who has not received his

notice to report for induction may enlist

in the Merchant Marine. To enlist,

candidates may report to their

nearest enrolling office or the regional

office at 45 Broadway, New York City.

Furniture that is bought unfinished

should first be wiped with a cloth

dampened with water. This raises the

grain, which should be sanded thoroughly

before a stain is applied.

Martha Scott burst on the theatrical

horizon several seasons ago

in the Pulitzer Prize Play, "Oar

Town." Her success led her to

Hollywood to repeat her triumph

on the screen. She followed this

with outstanding performances in

the motion pictures "The Howards

at the Radio City Music Hall, a

The critical reception of "Soldier's

Shelvei overloaded with homecanned

vegetables offer excellent op-

Sartunities for serving many versale

dishes. Try different combinations

to make them a real asset to

the meal.

The range, whether burners or

oven are used, is most Important in

the preparation of the vegetables.

Those who live beyond the city gas

mains and have their range serviced

with propane or butane—the

"bottled" or "tank" gases—will find

the cooking of vegetables simplified.

Easily regulated low flames are excellent

when you don't want to overcook

the vegetable!. The moist heat

of gas ranges will brown and cook

vegetables evenly.

Mix a can of your corn, with eggs

and milk, and bake in a buttered

casserole, topped with buttered

crumbs. Try your peas heated with

bite of crumbled bacon or pearl onions.

Green beans can be scalloped.

Spanish Rice b Point Saver

Meatless dishes full of rich, meaty

flavor are popular these days when

we are all short on points. Spanish

rice is one of these dishes, hearty

enough to satisfy and full of flavor

because of. its combination of rice,

tomatoes and cheese.

Rural and suburban homemakers

who use butane or propane ranges

will find that Spanish rice bakes

evenly so that each grain of rice is

fluffy and tender, and the flavor of

tomatoes and cheese is thoroughly

developed. The heat which they

have in a "bottled" or "tank" gas

oven will brown this dish quickly

and evenly without drying it out.

The best way to observe the defeat

of Hitler is to buy an extra

War Bond. In thousands upon thousands

of American homes today

there is pride and

sadness. From

these homes have

come fighting men

who died to bring

us this far on the

road to decisive

victory over all

our enemies. It will

take more sweat,

more tears, more

toil, more and

greater individual

lanned tor us. How much more

lood and tears depends on every


individual American war worker

and Bond buyer.

The Sixth War Loan symbol—a

bomb hurling down on the Rising

Sun—can only come to reality with

your individual help. Buy at least

an extra $100 War Bond above your

normal payroll savings. That's the

least you can do to back up your

fighting men.

list). Stamps now valid are A8 through Z8 and A5 through W5.

still required for purchase of any passenger tire.

All gasoline rations for Putnam County are now being issued

through the New York Mailing Center which in no way effects the

operation of the Board at Memorial Building, but does require a

greater length of time for panel action and for the issuance of coupons

to the applicant. Therefore, the Board requests that the following

simple rules be followed so that the system will operate efficiently and

without any undue hardship:

1. Please be sure to file your application at least 15 days in advance

of your needs.

2. Attach the Tire Inspection Record to all applications. The

record must contain your name and address, written legibly and also

your 1944 license number.

3. All applications must be properly completed and conuin all

the necessary information thus eliminating the return of the applications

and delaying their approval.

year. The coupons, which were scheduled to expire Sept. 30, will be

good until Aug. 31, 1945. Period 1 coupon, for the 1944-'45 heating

year also valid until Aug. 31, 1945.

Administrator for War has limited the amount of anthracite and

Eastern coke that each consumer may purchase. Each buyer of anthracite

or Eastern coke must file a consumer declaration before or accompanying

his first order of the season. Only seven-eights of the

normal annual hard-coal and coke requirements may be delivered during

the coal year ending March 31, 1945, and only 75 per cent of

the full requirements before Jan. 1, 1945. (Previously the regulation

was that only 50 per cent could be delivered before Oct. 1). Declaration

must be made to the regular dealer, who will supply the form

and is obliged to accept the order. If you have no dealer and cannot

find one, apply to any dealer for a consumer application blank so you

may be assigned to a dealer. S. F. A. regional readquarters are in Empire

State Building.

Question: How can-1 make a neat

Job of putting nails or hooks in a

plastered wall, so that I can hang a

couple of mirrors?

Answer: Nails should not be driven

into plastered walls. To hang

your mirrors, holes should be drilled

into the plaster, wall plugs or an*

chors inserted and screws used. A

hardware store can supply you with

these articles. If the mirrors are not

too large and heavy you can use a

sharply pointed nail, especially

made for this purpose, which has a

hook attached. These can be had

in large or small sizes from a hardware

dealer. If the mirrors are

very heavy, it might be better to

hang them from the picture molding

(if there is one), using picture

wire or cord, (The wire may be

hard to get.)

Here is the way one of our readers

runs a screw into a plaster wall:

"Mark' the position and drill a hole

about the size of the screw. Wood

putty is then packed into the hole,

and after hardening overnight the

screw is run into it. This method

has held a great deal of weight

around my house without any failures.

When you move the screws

can be taken out, leaving the wall

in a neat condition."

Storing Furniture

Question: I want to store my

kitchen, living and bedroom furniture.

Would it be all right to store

it in an unhealed upstairs room?

Do you think the coldness would

ruin tiie finish or warp the furniture?

And what effect would the

cold have on the mirror of a vanity?

Answer: Low temperatures will

not harm the furniture, but you

should take every precaution against

dampness. Before storing the furniture

clean and polish it, and then

cover with a heavy kraft paper to

keep dust off the surfaces. The refrigerator

should be cleaned and put

away with the door partly open.

Cover the bare metal parts of the

stove with a light oil to prevent

rusting. If the mirror is of good

quality it will stand up under all conditions.

• • •

Insulated Hot-Air Ducts

Question: The warm-air ducts

from our furnace are covered with

the usual sheet asbestos. Dust clings

to this surface and is very hard to

remove. Can this covering be painted,

to give a hard surface that can

be cleaned easily?

Answer: Asbestos insulating materials

are very porous and, because

of this, are difficult to paint.

The following method will be fairly

successful: After brushing off the

dust, apply a thin coat of shellac

(if you can get it), thinned halfand-half

with* denatured alcohol.

In the second half the experience

and finesse of the boys from Purdys

proved to be too much for the green

Bears and Central had no trouble winning


B. H. S. scored first and were no

worse than even at any time during

the first quarter and were In front at

the end of the period 8-5. In the second

B. H. S. were one short of Central's 7;

5 by Smith and 2 by Lundy.

Predicts Increased Investment

By American Farmers During

Sixth War Bond Campaign

WASHINGTON, D. C—A prediction f

that American farmers will invest

more money in bonds during the Sixth

War Loan than in any previous drive

was made today, by the War Finance

Division of the U. 5. Treasury.

Farmers bought $1,250,000,000 worth

of War Bonds during 1943. according

to the Bureau of Agricultural Economics.

In 1044 it is believed they

can and should purchase a total of

$2,000,000,000, Ted R. Gamble, national

Director of the War Finance

Division, said.

Income at Peak

The Sixth War Loan, starting November

20, comes at an ideal time

for agriculture, he pointed out.

This is not only the time when

larm income is at a seasonal peak,

but 1944 marks three years of record

Breaking farm income, he said.

Based on information obtained from

the BEA, the Agricultural Section of

the War Finance Division estimates

the 1944 cash farm income at $20,600.-

000.000. compared with $20,000,000,000

in 1942.

Although net farm income, due to

higher operating costs, may not be

greater than in 1943. most farmers

now have reduced their debts and

consequently will have more money

to put into War Bonds, the division


In the twelve months ending January

1, 1944, farmers reduced real

estate mortgages alone by $650,000,-

Bank Deposits Gain

After paying all operating coats

and necessary family expenses,

farmers will have left this year for

investment and debt reduction over

$5,000,000,000. the Agricultural Section

also estimates.

Because of the fact that new machinery

is not obtainable, farm deposits

axe piling up in rural banks.

Demand deposits neld by farmers

in these banks are estimated at

$4,500,000,000 and time deposits at

$2,000,000,000. Since the new method

of redeeming Series E Savings Bonds

makes them as liquid as a dollar bill,

it is no longer necessary for the farmer

to maintain a large bank account

to meet possible emergencies, Mr.

Gamble stated. Therefore, he believes,

farmers will convert part of

these deposits into War Bonds.

Pasteurization of Eggs.

Improves Keeping Quality

A new method for preserving eggs

has been announced by specialists

at the Missouri Agricultural Experiment

station. They have developed

the pasteurization of shell eggs, not

only to destroy bacteria but to retain

their desirable physical properties

much longer than if the eggs

were untreated. The method has

been checked and endorsed by the

United States army.

The eggs are passed through hot

oil or water, less than ten minutes

being required for the operation. The

process eliminates losses from chick

development by converting fertile

eggs capable of chick development

into an infertile state, so that they

can be kept in storage as well as

the infertile eggs.

The pasteurizing destroys the bacteria

though they may have penetrated

the shell and shell membranes

of the eggs. The process

cuts down the rate at which the

solid white is converted into thin or

water egg white. The process also

tends to improve the keeping quality

of infertile .eggs and has no harmful

effect on the taste or cooking

quality of eggs. The process can be

utilized by poultrymen as well as

commercial handlers of eggs. One

of its commercial uses will be to

reduce the bacteria content of frozen

and dried eggs if they are processed

from pasteurized or thermostabilized

eggs. The bacteria count

of such processed eggs was reduced

95 per cent. Some method must be

worked out by the individual to control

time and temperature during

the process of pasteurizing.

For best results, maintain the oil

and water at 140 degrees for 10 to 14


Tiny Flea Beetles

Cause Garden Damage

Numbers of small, jumping beetles

known as flea beetles appearing

in many gardens threaten damage to

tender young plants unless they are

controlled by sprays or dusts. Most

common of the many kinds of flea

beetles are the black ones, about the

size of a pinhead. As they are

small, gardeners seldom notice them

until they have done much damage.

War Bond purchasers will provide

a farm financial reserve to protect

against damage by drought, flood

and livestock disease, will assure

cash to replace and repair buildings

and machinery as well as to build

back soil fertility depleted by wartime

food production, and will provide

funds for education, vacations

and old age security.

The high farm income this year

is the result of the huge increase

in farm production to meet wartime

food needs rather than a rise in

rices, which have been held down

y the OPA it was explained.


Restaurant Sanitation

Eighty-one cities of more than 10,-

000 population and 169 cities of less

than 10,000 have adopted a restaurant

sanitation ordinance. It is also

in effect in 137 counties and has

been adopted as state board of health

regulations in 18 states. The law

can be enforced without local adoption

in Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware,

Florida, Indiana, Kentucky,

Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North

Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina,

Virginia and West Virginia. There

are 144 cities in these states which

j have not adopted the restaurant

j code, but in which it may be en-

I forced. Proper restaurant sanitai

tion has been given credit for much

] of the effectiveness of health measures

dealing with war workers.

Seedless Tomatoes

By evaporating a very small

i mount of an organic compound

known as beta naphthoxyacetic acid

in the greenhouse as tomato plants

just about come into bloom, every

plant in the place set fruit, which

ripened into high-quality, luscious

tomatoes without seeds in tests conducted

by Dr. P. W. Zimmerman of

Boyce Thompson institute. The substance

is an organic compound

which comes in crystalline form,

and at relatively low temperatures

milts, then turns into a vapor. It

was warmed over an electric hot

plate, causing the evaporation. The

vapor treatment was also tried on

the holly plant with the same result,

investigation is being made for

its wide practical application.
