Generous Response 
Meeting Red Cross 
Drive, Says Leader 

Citizens of Antioch township are 
responding generously to the Ameri- 
can Bed Cross drive, Roman B. Vos, 
campaign chairman, announces. 

The local quota* has not been met, 
however, Vos states, and he asks that 
those who have not contributed plan 
to do so this week so that the com- 
mittees may complete their reports as 
soon as possible. 

Persons who have not been con- 
tacted may notify Vos or Mrs." A. P. 
Brat rude, or any committee worker 
located in their area.

" A" Gasoline Coupons 

Must Last 3 Months 

In order to accommodate a larger 
number of persons, including summer 
residents, in the Antioch-Lake Villa 
. rationing board territory, it has been 
decided to change the meeting night 
of the board from Wednesday eve- 
ning to Friday evening, effective Mar. 
Commencing yesterday, "A" gaso- 
. line rationing coupons must last for 
three months instead of two months, 
rationing boards in all states west of 
the Allegheny mountains have an- 
nounced. The coupons will, however, 
still be good for three gallons each, 
although. by extending the time limit 
the effect will 'be -that of cutting the 
gasoline allotment one-third, bringing 
it on a par with that. of the eastern 
seaboard states. 

Effective April 1, it is announced, 
"R" coupons used by farmers will be 
confined to wholesale purchases made 
by them from distributors, and will 
not be honored at filling stations. 
The *E" coupons for off-highway us- 
age will still be honored at filling sta- 

Holders of "B" ration coupons may 
apply to rationing boards for coupons 
to mqke up the gasoline lost through 
the "A" ration cut.

As the list of those receiving the 
paper lengthened and the expense in- 
creased, the Legion assumed a share 
in sponsoring the project and arrang- 
ed to pay half of the cost. The task 
of making weekly changes in the mail- 
ing list, amounting to several hours 
of work each week, was taken over by 
Horan, with assistance from members 
of the News staff. 

"Tt will be noticed," Horan explains 
with regard to the honor roll "that a 
few names from outside of the com- 
munity, such as, those of members of 
the Antioch Sons of the Legion and 
also members of the Antioch Legion 
Junior Drum and Bugle corps, will 
appear on the sign. 

"There may be some misspelling 
of names, also, and if the relatives of 
those in the service are in doubt as 
to having a name placed on the sign 
or having the name of some service 
man or woman entered on the mailing 
list, such information may be given 
to Vos or myself. 

"It is suggested that as soon as a 
change of address is given to a rela- 
tive, the News be notified immediate- 
ly of the change, as it must be realized 
that newspaper publications travel 
only as second class mail matter and 
do not receive the same consideration 
in forwarding that is given to letters 
and other first class mail. The ad- 
dress should be given in full detail 
in order to insure prompt delivery.

CHAPTER I: The story of the famoui 
Isih «nd 7th Bombardment Groups, of 
Lieut. Col. Frank Kurt* and his Fortress 
crew in the tremendous air campaign 
that saved the day for the United Nations 
In the Southwest Pacific. Lieut. Kurtz, 
who was pilot of the old Fortress, known 
as "The Swoose." which escaped from 

,...».„„., „,,,,,, ... ,..,. . ...JIM. . .-.-... 

that fatal dny when the Japs struck. He 
pedals to the wreck of Old 99. finds cliiht 
of his crew lying In an Irregular line. 

CHAPTER II: Lieut. Kurtz tells how 
orders to camouflage Old 99 were cpun« 
termanded; Instead they were Jo load 
bombs. Then he wns ordered to Jerk the 
bombs, rclond with cameras and rush 
the camouflage. Preparations made for 
taking pictures of Formosa. • Someone 
shouts. '•Look at that pretty navy formn« 
tlon." The "navy formation happens to 
be a night of Jap planes. 

CHAPTER III: Bombs hit the mess 
hall. The Japs move off. They hear 
another hum. "p.«'s." they think, but 
Ihey prove to be Zeros coming in from 
the direction of Corregldor. The boys 
duck back Into their foxhotes. 
CHAPTER IV: The pilots are given 
' their targets and towering above the 
group Is Colin Kelly, about to head out 
on his first mission. Bum Wagner Is 
chased by Japs in his P«40. He meets 
Lieut. Russ Church and they bomb a 
Jap field. Church falls to return. The 
death of Colin Kelly. 

CHAPTER V: Fortresses are kent in 
the air to save them from the Japs. 
Through some mistake • someone opens 
Are on them. Japs begin photographing 
the place. No longer safe to sleep In the 
• barracks, cots arc moved into a corn 
Held. With no fighters left to defend 
them, evacuation begins. Lieut. Kurtz 
tells of last plane trip out In a patched- 
up plane. Japs land light tanks at Apart. 
Squadron commander Major Gibbs falls 
to return from mission. U. S. forces flee 
from Clark Field to Mindanao. 

CHAPTER VI: Navigator Harry 
Schrrlbcr tells of a fight with Zeros In 
which Shorty Whcless takes part. He 
lands In a rice paddy and Is surrounded 
by Filipinos. The crew buys an outrigger 
chnoc and sail to the isle of Panay. Later 
thev take off for Australia. 

CHAPTER VII: Lieut. Kurtz takes up 
the siory again. He describes the hot, 
dry Christmas day in Australia, and how 
U. S. filers spent it. A report comes In 
over CW radio. It was from Schactzel 
saying he'd be In after dark with one 
body aboard. Schaetzcl gets in. is* plane 
a wreck. Gen. Urcrcton lands on the 
field and the boys nre summoned to a 
• mcctlnc. 

CHAPTER VIII: U. S. fliers arrive at 
the Dutch field, and shortly after start 
on flight for Davao. In the Philippines, 
but run short of gas and come home. 
Gas up and take off at midnight for 
Davao, but fall to make target. On third 
trip over. Kurtz sees tremendous concen- 
tration of ships, makes bomb run. Jap 
fighters come up. "Bombs awayt" 


"I poured on every ounce of power 
we had, and was about to turn for 
the getaway when I saw, just in 
time, that old Jim, who had dropped 
his bombs before X did, had al- 
ready started his turn to get off the 
target a few seconds before me. He 
had his plane reefed in to a turn so 
tight that his wing was practically 
vertical, and I had to cock mine up 
practically the same way to keep 
out of his way. 

"So then when we got disentangled 
we put our planes into a slight dive 
to outrun the pursuit behind us. 
Those Zeros had started late off the 
ground, but a Zero can climb fast- 
it has practically no weight at all 
and can climb better than 5,000 
feet a minute. So we went into this 
inclining dive to pick up speed and 
stretch our distance from the target 

"The next thing I did was to call 
down to the bombardier and the nav- 
igator to come on up and tell me 
what we'd done to the Japs. Gulp- 
ing coffee and between chews of 
sandwiches, they told me and my 
co-pilot just how it had looked. Ly- 
ing on their bellies and looking down 
and back, they'd been able to see 
the target some minutes after we'd 
left it. t 

"They said it had been a, sight to 
watch. A few of the Jap cruisers 
and destroyers had managed to get 
under way, and their wakes laced 
the water in great spirals and sworls 
as they tried to dodge the bombs. . 
Aside from these few, they said, 
we'd caught the Japs absolutely flat- 
footed. If there had been enough 
of us, we could have blown a chunk 
out of their fleet they would never 
have recovered from. j 

"As it was, they had watched four 
direct hits on a Jap battleship, seen 
pieces of debris flying in every di- 
rection and smoke starting to bil- 
low up. In addition to this, our 
squadron hod sunk three smaller 
craft— two cruisers and a transport. 
"They said it was beautiful to 
watch. One of the ships was keel- 
ing slowly, another's nose was tilt- 
ing up from a direct hit on her stern, 
which was already under before we 
went out of sight. 

"They said our bomb pattern hod 
churned the whole area white with 
spouts of foam, and what few ships 
had their power up were running 
around like crazy. They said thou- 
sands of skilled personnel had been 
killed or drowned, and also that 
we had torn hell out of the dock 
workers and docks at Davao Harbor. 
"Only I don't have time to gloat 
long, for something approaching us 
from ahead catches my eye through 
the windshield. It's practically fly- 
ing our course and our altitude, ex- 
cept that it's off to the left. But am 
I seeing a ghost? It can't be what I 
think it is, a Messerschmitt 110, the 
kind that Ernst Udet told me all 
about in Berlin when I visited there 
in 1034. There can't be a Messer- 
schmitt HO in this hemisphere, 
but what else could it be with that 
split tail? . 

•{Anyway there it is, coming near- 
er and nearer. 'The Messerschmitt 
UO's have plenty of range, so the 
Japs must be using her as a scout 
plane. We've altered our course 
from the phony one to the real one 
which will bring lis home. And now 
this flying nightmare—out of its con- 
tinent and Its hemisphere— has un- 
doubtedly seen us and can surely 
figure out that we're headed for Bor- 
neo, where we must be based. And 
just now is approaching us at an 
angle where, if I dare to, I could 
peel off my formation and give him 
a lot of trouble. 

"He doesn't alter his course and 
I don't alter mine; and after he's 
passed the point where I could set 
up a collision course with him, I 
begin to come to my senses, to real- 
ize that I'm the pilot of a Flying 
Fortress and my job is to get home 
safely with these boys and this 
plane, which was never designed to 
engage in dogfights with Messer- 

"We got back to Molang feeling 
pretty pleased with ourselves," said 
Frank, "and I personally felt I 
hod made headway settling my old 
Philippine score. But in Java we 
found there were troubles ahead, 
and the least of these was that our 
Navy was accusing us of bombing 
their ships. They didn't say any of 
them had been hit, just that they'd 
had to beat off an attack, and it 
occurred to me that this might ex- 
plain all those fireworks which came 
whooping up under our chins through 
the overcast that night over the 
Celebes Sea. But we were never 

"So we said, 'Then why don't you 
tell us where your ships are going 
to be?' but it seemed that had never 
been done— a ruling from the Navy 
Department in Washington. I guess 
those guys must take some kind of 
a bomb-sight oath never to tell any- 
thing to anybody who doesn't wear 
black shoes. 

"But plenty more was going on. 
It developed that our smash at the 
Jap fleet in Davao had been al- 
most too successful. Because Davao 
was no longer a safe base for them, 
they had apparently boosted up 
their schedule by two or three 
weeks. Our reconnaissance went 
clear up to the Davao area and re- 
ported nothing there; then we found 
out the whole gang had moved out 
together and they were off the coast 
of Borneo, moving down into Macas- 
sar Strait, and it was clear they 
intended to clean out Borneo— not 
only because of our advance bases 
there, but because they wanted the 
rich oil fields at Tarakan and Balak- 
papan on the eastern coast of Bor- 
neo, where the oil is so rich they say 
you can pump it right into the bunk- 
ers uf ships. Of course they'd built 
up bi(t oil reserves which they had 
bought from us before Pearl Har- 
bor, but now they were out to grab 
off some fields of their own. 

"And who was going to stop them? 
It was up to us to try, because we 
seemed to be the only force the 
United Nations had in that area big 
enough to tackle the Jap fleet. 

"We were briefed before dawn- 
told everything that was known 
about this big Jap gang of ships off 
northeast Borneo— and at 6:30 in 
the morning nine of us took off from 
the Malang Field. We planned to 
fly over the Java Sea and then in- 
land over Borneo, carrying to start 
with an altitude of about 9,500 feet. 
But about eight o'clock we hit a 
tropical front which was a night- 
mare—fog so dense you could hardly 
see to light the tip of your cigarette. 
"When we saw it coming ahead, 
each V spread out a little, so we 
wouldn't collide. 1 Only we didn't 
dream how dense and how long it 
was going to be. 

"It was like trying to fly inside a 
giant bale of cotton— so dense that 
when you looked out at the side you 
could barely see your own wing 
tips. And looking straight ahead, 
that bale of cotton seemed tightly 
packed against your windshield, only 
it was a dull flat gray-white, like 
the cotton I imagine they'd spin 
winding sheets out of. And you'd 
stare into the •windshield, trying to 
see how close you were to your wing 
man, but there would only be that 
flat white, squeezed tight against 
your windshield, muffling every- 
thing. Then all of a* sudden, the 
wing of the plane ahead would come 
surging into view out of that wind- 
ing sheet, so terribly big and close 
that you would frantically jerk back 
all four throttles* to cut your power, 
and begin flshtailing your rudder to 
slow the big brute down a little, 
praying that by this you'd miss 
crashing into the plane ahead at 
least by a few yards. 

"We'd been fighting through it on 
instruments, because inside that cot- 
ton bole you couldn't see stars or 
ocean, and it took so much hard fly- 
ing that 1 was having my co-pilot 
handle the power for me. If I thought 
I was dropping behind the rest, may- 
be I would get lost and have to go 
over the target alone, which by now 
we knew was a dangerous business, 
I'd say to him, 'All right, give me a 
little more mercury now— about four 
inches.' Then when I'd catch a 
glimpse of the plane ahead I'd say: 
•Okay, now you can bring it back to 
thirty inches. We're sitting okay— I 
can see him fine.' And I could for a 
minute or so. 

"Without warning 1 break into the 
clear. I haven't climbed over that 
cloud, but instead have flown out 
of one of the walls of an enormous 
cloud canyon and am now flying 
around in the clear air between the 

"Ahead of me looms the other can- 
yon wall. Maybe it's thirty miles 
away, maybe fifty— you can't ever 
judge the distance of a cloud, be- 
cause they don't come in standard 

sizes. But cloud canyons' like this 
one are one. magnificent sight that 
you never see any place except in 
the high skies. ; 

"Because, you see, the morning 
sun was slanting down from behind 
me, over the top of the canyon wall 
out of which I had just come, to 
hit the top half of the cloud-canyon 
wall ahead. That top half might 
have been built out of burnished 
silver feather beds piled one on top 
the "other, and yet you looked again 
and it seemed to be so firm it could 
be carved of glistening ice or mar- 

"I am wondering if old .Jim is 
also looking at all this when sud- 
denly his voice comes out of no- 
where into my earphones. 
_«' 'Connolly to Kurtz,' he Is call- 

" 'Kurte answering Connally,' I 

" 'Have you broken into the clear 
yet?' he asks. 

" 'Into the clear, Jim, at 14,500. 
Now I!m turning onto 270 degrees.' 
That means I'm turning •. :t to fly 
down that canyon to Sac if I 

The t.aliant Dutch are burning up 
their Borneo oil fields. 

can't catch sight of Jim, whose voice 
is so loud in my ears. Suddenly 
I see a single Fortress ahead there 
in the canyon. I pick him up when 
the reflecting sun hits his uptilted 
wing. He is circling. 

" 'I think I see you, Jim,' I call. 
•Continue to circle.' I head toward 
the plane and fall in on its wing, 
continuing the long slow circle in- 
side the canyon in. the hope we'll pick 
up some of the others, and won't 
have to go in on the target alone. 
Meanwhile the radio operators of 
the two 'planesjhave started talking 
to each other by winking their Aldis 
lamps back and forth. We're so 
near the target I don't want to use 
the radio any more than necessary. 
And just then I spot a third plane- 
about 500 feet below us and far- 
ther west down the canyon. Just as 
I'm wondering which one it is, my 
radio operator reports that the plane 
we're circling on isn't Jim at all, it's 
Bill Bohnakcr. So we drop on 
down the canyon and sure enough, 
that third plane turns out to be old 
Jim. I can read his number plain 
now on his tail. Now there are three 
of us in the circle, wondering what in 
hell has become of the other six. 
We haven't got the gas to stay in 
this golden dream castle much long- 
er. But just then my radio operator 
comes in with a message from 
Combs, the leader. God knows where 
he is, but he's telling us, 'Continuing 
to target," and he's serWing it out 
by key, where he can use code, be- 
cause he daren't use voice so close 
to the target as he must by now 
be, because most pf these damn 
Zero pilots seemed to have gradu- 
ated from Los Angeles High School 
and understand English as well as 
you do. 

"All right, continue it is, so now 
we plunged back into that damned 
f ron t_the opposite canyon wall— and 
the gray mist packed down around 
my windshield again. We continued 
to climb in that deathly whiteness- 
first one wing and then the other 
surging into my view. I flew it 
for forty-five minutes and decided it 
was just too much to risk ctashing 
into each other when we were so 
close to the target. So without any 
message to Jim or Bill I decided I'd 
spread out. I flew 45 degrees for 
thirty seconds, then back thirty 
more seconds, and then continued on 
the old course— flying on instru- 
ments, pf course. But now that we 
were staggered both in altitude and 
r in interval, it wasn't so bod. 

"Finally we broke out into the 
clear at 27,000 feet at a quarter after 
ten and discovered we had lost in- 
terval only by a very little. But I 
was groggy— we'd been on oxygen 
for four and a half hours already. 
"But the weather was still playing 
tricks. Now the mist was coming 
in great tufts, thicker than cotton 
wadding, while below us was a thin 
layer of overcast. 

"We were getting close to the tor- 
get now. Should we climb higher? 
There wasn't much point, because if 
we did, that overcast layer might 
thicken so that we couldn't see the 
target, and we'd have to come down 
below I* to unload. . 

• "But Where's Bill Bohnakcr? I i 
look back and see that he's very 
slowly peeling off. I wonder why. 
Probably supercharger trouble. Then 
I think to myself, 'There he goes, 
and I'd hoped maybe at least three 
of his could go in together.' Because 
in my mind is that rain-check idea 
—the score isn't settled yet, and if 
that target Is open at all, I've made 
up my mind I'm going in. And I 
think to myself, 'Here we go again, 
Jim, just you and me.' 

"About this time I hear a gunner 
on Combs' ship— they've broken ra- 
dio silence, which means they're on 
the target— saying, 'Lots of enemy 
fighters sighted I' 

"But they're still far ahead, out 
of sight. Here we are again, in 
a staggered 'attack— the stragglers 
to bear the brunt of what the first 
flights stir up. We ought to know 
better, but still I'm going on in. 

"The weather gets crazier and 
crazier— these enormous tufts not 
stratified at all, but floating around 
at almost any altitude. And my co- 
pilot seems to be fascinated by a 
big black one that isn't shaped quite 
like a thunderhead. It might be 
one of those Dakota tornado funnels, 
only it doesn't revolve. 

"Tiien suddenly he says, staring 
at it: 'Hell, Frank, that isn't a cloud 
at all— look!' I follow his finger, and 
down at the base of that cloud, on 
the ground, is s crackling, flaming 
oil field! The gallant Dutch are 
scorching the earth for fair— burn- 
ing up their Borneo oil fields right 
in the face of the advancing. Japs, 
millions of dollars' worth of it. Imag- 
ine all of East Texas crackling and 
pouring black smoke into the sky. 

"We can't stop to watch a bil- 
lion dollars go up in black smoke. 
The Dutch ore doing their job and 
we have ours, which just now is 
scanning for fighters. I realize that 
in this weather and so close to the 
target they might be anywhere, only 
for some reason I never think of 
them when my No. 1 starboard en- 
gine starts jumping around in its 
mount, rattling the whole plane. 

"I only curse my luck and ask, 'If 
we were going to have engine trou- 
ble, why in hell couldn't it hove 
been on the way home instead of 
now, when we're about to begin our 
run over the target?' 

"I watch the oil pressure drop 
sickeningly, and still it doesn't dawn 
on me what hit that motor. I'm 
just sore at it for letting me down. 
And also, what will I do— nurse it 
along by feathering it, or see if I 
can't give it maybe 1)000 RPM's, 
(revolution* iter minute) while I push 
the other three up to 2,600?

Republicans To Confer 
With Form Leaders 
On Policy Program 

The sub-committee on Agriculture 
of the Republican Post-war Advi- 
sory Council will hold a two day 
conference with farm leaders on 
April 3 and 4 at the Stevens Hotel. 
Chicago. ; , . £ 

This committee is making a thor- 
ough study of this basic industry 
and will report its conclusions to the 
Republican National Committee 
when it meets in June, the report 
to be used as a basis for drafting 
a platform for agriculture and for 
the guidance of the Party after the 
next election, i .... '-:-, 

The committee believes that the 
best source for information and ad- 
vice on agriculture and its problems 
is the farmers themselves and there- 
fore has invited farm leaders to pre- 
sent their views at the conference to 
be held in Chicago. .

farm problem. . 

This is the first meeting of its kind 
ever called by any political party, 
with the officials of the party con- 
ferring weeks preceding its national 
convention with the official leaders 
of agriculture. 

Republican party leaders believe 
that the farm problem is economic 
rather than political and that it 
should not be made the subject of 
political controversy. They believe, 
however, that the nation cannot 
prosper permanently until agricul- 
ture can be placed on a basis where 
farmers will receive their full share 
of the natienal income. 

Agriculture has been made a step- 
child by the New Deal. The White 
House Palace Guard considers the 
farmers as mere pawns in their 
scheme of things and has been bend- 
ing every effort to completely regi- 
ment them in their plan of agricul- 
tural operations controlled from 
Washington. They have lost sight 
of the fundamental truth expressed 
by Thomas Jefferson when he de- 
clared: "Were we to be directed 
from Washington when to sow and 
when to reap, we should soon want

are saying, 

my fertiliz 


'Til take 



' "I used to wait until spring to buy my fertilizer. But, 
times have changed! Today there is a shortage of 
labor for handling deliveries; potash and phosphates 
are in greater demand than available supplies can take 
care of. Every farmer will want to step up yields 
again tliis year. I know, from long experience, that 
the best way to do this is with DARLING'S SOIL 
BUILDERS. I've seen how it increased yields, of corn 
selected year after year for National and State Cora 
Husking -Contests. It's my first choice among ferti- 

"No- one can tell what delays or other shortages we 
may have this spring. I am changing my buying 
habits and getting DARLING'S Fertilizer NOW."

It's a wise farmer who takes his spring fertilizer 
NOW. Shortage of hands for shipping, trucking- 
combined with uncertainty of product restrictions, 
warrant storing spring fertilizer on the farm. DAR- 
LING'S Fertilizer in moisture-resisting 
. 80-lb. Handiwate paper bags is easy to 
handle and easy to store. Don't wait 
and hope to get it in the spring. Take 
your fertilizer NOW and avoid delays 
or disappointment when you are ready 
for planting. We suggest your calling 
on us NOW.

West Cut 

Because of expanded farm and 
highway needs, gas rations for a 
"A" card holders west of the Alle- 
ghany mountains were cut from 
three to two gallons per '.coupon, the 
reduction being accomplished by ex- 
tending the validity of the coupons 
from 7 to 10 days. 

Effect of the OPA action was to , 
take away one of the three gallons 
on the "A" coupon allotted for es- 
sential driving, and bring western- 
ers' VA" rations to the same level 
as in- the 17 eastern states. 

Cut in the "A" coupons does not 
affect holders of "FT and "C" cou- 
pons, who will be able to obtain ad- 
ditional ration allotments for occu- 
pational driving to offset the reduc- 
tion in the "A" card values.

What Did You Do Today? 

By LI. Dean Shatlaln, Tank Commander 
(Written on an African battlefield) 

What did you do today, my friend, 

From morning till the night? 
How many times did you complain 

That rationing is too tight? 
When are you going to start to do 

All of the things you say? 
A soldier would like to know, my friend, 

What did you do today? 
We met the enemy today 

And took the town by storm. 
Happy reading is will make 
For you tomorrow mom. 
You'll read with satisfaction 
The brief communique, 
We fought, but are you fighting? 

What did you do today? 
My gunner died in my arms today, 

I feel his warm blood yet, 
Your neighbor's dying boy gave out 

A cry I'll never forget. 
On my right a tank was hit, 
A flash and then a fire, 
The stench of burning flesh 

Still rises from the pyre. , 

What did you do today, my friend, 

To help us with the task? 
Did you work harder and longer for less, 

Or is it too much to ask? 
What right have I to ask you this, 

You probably will say, 
Maybe now you'll understand, 
You see ... I died today. 

(Lt Shatlain amputated his own foot with a jackknife 
and thought he was dying as he wrote this poem. He was 
rescued by Americans after two hours of hiding and is 
now recuperating in a hospital in England.)
