But when 13-year-old Erik Sprohge of 4227 Oberlin fash- ions a Hun from clay, paints the vicious two-inch replica in gawdy colors and tops the javelin with a brilliant plume, then we feel convinced the Huns did all the things they've will remake your sent ions with new springs and entton at §3.50 each.

While all others quoted "missed the lioat" hy setting 1944 for the end of the German conflict and most of them were reluctant even to guess at the possible conclu- sion of the Jap war, the Generalissimo predicted that the war in both theatres would he won ill 1945.

The housewife who saved her fats, the schoolboy who collected scrap metal, the businessman who spent long hours on Civilian Defense, the worker who gave up his lunch hour to donate blood—all of you have helped win this Victory. Grandmothers who cooked for the I SO, women who minded babies, farmers who work long, long hours, short-handed, to produce bumper crops, office people who took work home with them at night—all of you, in some manner, have helped bring triumph to our Cause. Men and women who have served their community and their nation on ration boards and draft hoards without pay, folks who have gone around the town selling Bonds and Stamps at the end of a hard day's work, Motor Corps drivers, Canteen workers, entertain- ers, Nurses Aides, Auxiliary Policemen anil Firemen, First ...

Page 10 SOUTHWESTERN TIMES August 16, 1945 Sleuths Track Down Fabric Wreckers, Pin "Crimes" On Drugs, Acids, Bugs Holes burned through fabric may not be caused by a flame. Spilled drops of medicine may leave a tablecloth looking as though it had been sprayed with machine gun bul- lets. A fabric damage that shows up after laundering may have its origin on the other side of the At- lantic—or in a United States auto- mobile battery. Even insects have been known to chew up prized linens. These and other baffling cases of fabric damage are solved in the scientific "fabric crime" detection laboratory of the American Insti- tute of Laundering. Often the solu- tions have much of the mystery and suspense of scientific crime detec- tion. Hole In Pocket In a South Carolina laundry, for example, a naval officer's gray uni- form coat was found to have a hole the size of a half dollar burned through the left-hand pocket. Since this could not have happened in the water-filled wash wheel, the laun-...

D Class In Gardening Will Be Organized For Boys Of Seetion Boys of the section will have opportunity to enroll in a free class in gardening, according to Ferd Rieger of 6516 Brompton Road who plans to organize a group with instruction starting the latter part of September. Lessons will cover the handling of seed for various- flowers and vegetables, preparing the soil, planting, cultivation, plant- ing and pruning shrubbery and trees and other phases of garden- ing. Mr. Rieger, an attorney for the Texas Company, has followed gar- dening as a hobby for a number of years. The interest which several neighborhood boys have displayed in learning about plants gave him the idea for forming the class. The group will be limited to 30 mem- bers, and boys between 10 and 15 years will be eligible. The class will meet for an hour's instruction once a week for some six to ten weeks. No charge will be made, but the boys will furnish any mate- rials they m...
