'there is no question that a great nan’v bacteria are left on eating utensils both in public restaurants and in homes even after thorough cleaning. But they cannot do very much harm. A bacteriologic survey of public places in which food or beverages were sold was made in a small ton. The cleanliness of the kitch ens was good; metal sinks were used; clean towels were used for drying. Bacteriologic swabs taken tan the edges of glasses, spoons jsd forks which would come in contact with the mouth were made especially after the noon or eve ting rush period. Temperature of tie wash water was from about B to 140 degrees with a rinse later of from about 50 to 150 de grees. Naturally, as all bacteriologists know, a certain number of bac teria would be present. But the amount of bacteria on these uten sils and in the rinse and wash water was very much higher than would be considered normal, even fhocgh the temperature of the lash and rinse water was high (cough to kill many bacteria. Chlorine Added It was found that if a chlorine racentration of 100 parts per mil es water is used, however, that te results are very much different id highly gratifying. Every other feature — the temperature of the Mtr, the cleanliness of the towels ici the care of washing was the ®e, the only change was in the addition of a small amount of chlo rine to the water.

Lochner, chief of the Associated Press Berlin bu reau, in his third trip to the front with the German forces, sent the following dispatch by special courier to Cologne, from an unidentified point be hind the German front line, and thence by telephone to Berlin.) BY LOUIS P. LOCHNER ■MY 13 hou sands of fresh German troops were being speeded into the zone of operations today as Dr. Otto Dietrich, personal press chief of Adolf Hitler, rejected all talk of peace and said Germany’s only aim Addressing foreign journalists Dietrich said: “Germany is simply unbeatable no matter what may yet come. The fuehrer towers high above all our enemies. Nothing can avert their defeat and disaster.” Ridiculing earlier assertions by the leaders of Great Britain and France that Germany would be forced to her knees, Dietrich point ed to Germany’s present military tic and pessimistic opinions could be heard. The advance to Romilly placed the Hermans 30 miles south of the Marne, and about 100 miles northwest of Di jon. With the German sweep in mind, the French worked at removal of of ficials and press services from Tours throughout the day. Tours, which has been one of the seats of govern ment, is about 120 miles southeast of Paris. By nightfall almost all persons con nected with the government and the press had left. (Here one line was censored.) The German drive deep into France between Paris and the Maginot line threatened the fortified line from the rear. It was said that the great for tifications were fast being “turned” from Montmedy, theh northern an chor. While she will take all that Ameri ca can send, and urges the cutting of red tape, these sources said that Bri. tain’s own stepped-up production had vastly expanded her purchase of machine tools from the United States and that she would continue to take such tools up to the United States’ capacity to send them. The policy is to put into the field at once the biggest army possible— briefly: A-maximum of soldiers in a minimum of time—they said, but the Allies must look across the Atlantic for a large part of the equipment. They expressed belief that it was the United States’ duty to herself to do the best she can in the hope her aid will turn the balance for demo cracy. They emphasized that the need is now, next week and the week after— not next year—although they 'eclar ed that those charged with supplying Britain's army were not forgetting to look further ahead also. Primarily what Britain wants from the United States, these sources said, are the weapons that country manu factured at the close of the last war to replace those she obtained from the Allies. (This would indicate a grave threat to the 1,000,000-odd French troops de fending the line.) If the fight goes on, the Loire river line running through Tours and Or leans would be the next really strong natural barrier behind which the French could defend themselves. NEW YORK, June 14.—UP)—Co lumbia Broadcasting corporation re ported that a dispatch from its cor respondent at Tours said today the French government had left Tours, to which it moved from Paris, and would establish an emergency capital in Bordeaux, near the southeast coast of France on the Garonne river. Book Highlights These are grim days when many people who ordinarily do not think about such things are intent on American relations with the rest, of the world. Guidebooks for these unknown roads are blossoming in great profusion, and two of the best come out almost in tandem from the same publisher. They are: "A Foreign Policy for Ameri ca” by Charles A. Beard (Knopf: $1.50) and “Isolated America” by Raymond Leslie Buell (Knopf: $3). Charles A. Beard, one of our wisest historians, regards himself as a “continentalist” rather than an “isolationist.” In any case he thinks it would be foolish for the United States to get involved in the European war. He believes that close adherence to a “continental” policy is the traditional course of the United States from its foundation, and that the various foreign adventures we have goen mixed up which were he argues, to cleve closely to our tradtion of non-involvement in for eign quarrels. He martials an im pressive array of facts and argu ment to support his view. Buell, as head of the Foreign Policy Association, is naturally more inclined to the "internation al” view. He sketches American foreign policy concisely and clean ly from the World War to the pres ent, and then draws his picture of a brave new world and the part he thinks the United States ought to play in it. In the creation of this new world of order and justice, Buell thinks the United States must play a leading role if it is to make possible the survival of our own way of life. Buell’s book is more circumstan tial in its relation, step by step, of how we got where we are. It is more visionary in its glimpse oi the possible future. But it fFers few hints of how to meet the day by-day problems which beset dip lomatic policy as it is actually created in action. The Beard book is more down-to-earth, and has a closer application to the -hourly scene. The question men ask one another every hour these days is, “Shall we get into the war?” Beard answers it. Buell doesn’t. Together, the two books provide ample materials for even such frenetic discussions of foreign policy as are shocking the country today. 1 The average time taken by a telephone operator to answer a subscriber’s call is 4.8 seconds, according to official tests. Shakespeare himself spelled his same in 26 different* ways, so the correct spelling always has been i matter of argument. IN HOLLYWOOD BY PAUL HARRISON NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD—The James boys were not what you’d call first-rate citizens, but their fictionized ghosts have performed some notable ben efactions. With a story remotely based on the life of Jesse, 20th Fox made the biggest money-gross ing picture of 1939. The same epic launched Nancy Kelly on a com fortable flicker career. Jesse gave everything he had to that film, dying and being buried even beyond the resurrective mira cles of the cinema. So Brother Frank now is coming to bat for Darryl Zanuck and the stockhold ers. “The Return (in Technicolor) of Frank James” also will serve as an introductory vehicle for an other promising young actress, her name is Gene Tierney. Your correspondent watched Miss Tierney play her first scene before a camera and then took her to lunch. For me, both ex periences were notable. I never have observed greater composur on a set. She talked right up to dour Henry Fonda (he's Frank James) and didn’t muff a line or piece of business. I asked, “aren’t you scared?” and she said, “No, I love it.” SURE ONLY SHE LIKES TO ACT This was not the overconfidence or desperate aggressiveness of many newcomers. The green-eyed, interestingly - proportioned 19-year old isn’t very sure of anything except that she likes to act. Seh agrees she has a lot to learn, on and off the set. Her acting career is the outcome of many months of quiet conflict with a wealthy father—Howard S. Tierney, New York insurance broker—who once declared that he’d rather see her dead than in pictures. Following her education, which included a school in Switzerland, and a social debut and three months of parties, Miss Tierney convinced her father that she was going to have a try at the stage. He assented gracefully enough to accompany her, one day a week, on the rounds of the producers' down, he brightened visibly, donw, he brightene dvisibly. FINALLY MADE THE GRADE Finally, though, she got into a George Abbott play, “Mrs. O’Brien Entertains.” That was in Jan uary, 1939. It ran only four weeks but won the ingenue a six-months contract in Hollywood, a Colum bia. Nothing happened. She’d drop in to the studio occasional^ and wist fully ask if a part had been found for her. Impatient executives would answer: “Now look, Miss Tierney —you’re getting your check each week, so what are you complaining about? Why don’t you do down to Palm Springs and get a nice sun tan?” Back in New York, her second chance in a play was equally dis appointing. Then, though, whe was handed the ingenue lead in “The Male Animal,” the James Thurber hit that’s still going strong. After four weeks of it, though, she had to come here on her 20th-Fox con tract. Miss Tierney looks a little like Vivien Leigh and, when she smiles, a little like Deanna Durbin. She writes a little poetry sometimes and reads the war news avidly Decause she has traveled every where in Europe. Once, after watching a newsreel of the Ger man invasion, she rushed home md wrote a long, scathing fetter :o Adolf Hitler. 2 By a blow of their wings, swans ire capable of breaking a man’s sg.

For the fourth consecutive week, the middle west showed the largest year-to-year improvement in the country, the estimated change being between 8 and 16 per cent. “The East followed with a gain of 7 to 13 per cent and the south with 7 to 11 per cent. New England was estimated 5 to 9 per cent above last year’s total.” Posse And Bloodhounds Hunt Cobb, Blackburn ENFIELD, June 14. — UR — Two desperate criminals who escaped from a prison cage-truck near here yesterday were hunted by a posse and bloodhounds today. The fugitives were Eddie Cobb, 30, and Wade Blackburn, 27. They were being transferred from cen tral prison at Raleigh to Caledonia prison farm when they escaped by sawing through the roof of the truck. Three years ago Cobb, with seven other long-term prisoners tunneled out of Central prison, and was recaptured a few months later in Richmond, Va. He was sentenced in 1935 in Wake county to 30 to 40 years for mrglary with explosives and pos lession of burglary tools. Blackburn was sentenced in Cat iwba county to 25 to 30 years for ridnaping a taxi triver and rob iery will firearms. 2 Only one-third of 1 per cent of tie total area of Iceland is under ; ultivation I1 RALEIGH BRIEFS Star-News Bureau, Sir Walter Hotel.. BY HENRY AVERILL RALEIGH; June 14.—It no doubt is a compliment to his really out standing ability, but C a p u s M. Waynick, editor of the High Point Enterprise, probably gets rather weary of having his name men tioned for every vacant govern mental and political post in North Carolian. Every time some high official dies, or resigns, or is ousted, up bobs the suggestion that Waynick will succeed him. The writers never need the slightest basis for suggesting him, either. They just reach down into the grab bag of memory and bring up the name of the former High way Commission chairman who was later director of the Purchase and Contract division. On Thursday morning it seems that the scribes got their signals mixed. The News and Observer’s “Under the Dome” column tipped Waynick as a possibility to take over the Highway Commission again, vice Frank Dunlap whom it proposes to get rid of out of hand. Tom Bost, in the Greensboro Daily News of the same date, had now - Governor Clyde Hoey and next-Goyernor J. M. Broughton de bating Waynick as successor to critically ill Commissioner of Rev enue Allen J. Maxwell. The advocates of legal liquor stores in Johnston county, who must repel the very powerful chal lenge of a militant dry drive, picked a nice name for the organi zation through which they hope to wage a successful war of defense. It’s the “Association for Tem perance, Alcoholic Control and Tax Reduction.” This corner’s idea of asking for the millenium, or something like it, is the North Carolina newspa per which suggested editorially that Bob Reynolds ‘be either con sistent or silent.’* The present “Bull’s Eye” type Sight Glass in use on most North Carolina gasoline filling station pumps is not the protection to cus tomers it is supposed to be, in the opinion of C. D. Baucom, chief of the Weights and Measures division of the State Department of Agri culture. “When X discovered that the Sight Glass assembly was being so designed and built as to make it possible to deliver forty indicated gallons into a five-gallon can with out any visible evidence, contrary to the proper functioning of the pump as a whole, I concluded it is time for a reckoning,” he said in a recent address on the subject. Dan Tompkins wasn’t nominated for Lieutenant Governor, but if he had been there could have been no kick on the size of individual con tributions made to his race. In his report filet, in the Secre tary of State’s office, Tompkins listed no less than 16 contributors who all put together gave him a campaign fund of 66.50. Against this he listed expenses of $76.75. The law firm of Clark and Clark, father and son, of Fayetteville, is composed, according to its letter head of J. Bayard Clark (who is the Seventh District Congressman) and Jerome B. Clark, Jr. Evidently the younger Clark doesn’t like to part his name in the middle. 1 Fifth Column by WILLIAM AUSTIN Nea Service Special Correspondent OTTAWA.—Canada has cracked down on fifth columnists, turning the Dominion into a no-man’s-land for Communists, Nazis or anyone else consiered likely to disrupt the war effort. A little fed book called ’Defence of Canada Regulations” was the big stick swung by Royal Cana dian Mounted Police and provincial authorities to smash the Commu nist Party in Canada and the Nazi mspired National Unity Party. The regulations, in terms so broad they can fit any situation arising from the war, confer on the government powers usually associated with a dictatorship. Disclosure of the treachery of subversive elements on the Euro pean battlefields and how they paved the way for German troops to invade The Lowlands brought an insistnt public demand that the Canadian government round up riders of the Trojan horse. Secret agents supplied the evidence and the Mounties swung into ac tion. COURT ORDER BROKE BACK OF COMMUNISM First to feel the power of the little red book were the Commu nists. A test case here convicted three young Reds of actions in jurious to the war effort. They were sentenced to terms ranging from $1000 to $2000. Immediately, on their conviction, Cecil L. Sny der, Deputy Attorney General oi Ontario, received from Supreme Court Justice E. R. E. Chevrier an order declaring the Communist Party illegal. That court order broke the back cf Communism in Canada. Defence of Canada Regulations stipulate that when an organization has been declared illegal "every person who thereafter continues to be or be comes an officer or member there of or professes to be such, or who advocates or defends the acts, principlyes, or policies of such il legal organization shall be guilty ol an offense against this regulation.” Next on the list came the black sbirted members bf the National Unity Party. A raid on their Mon treal headquarters netted three truckloads .of pamphlets, letters and documents. Most of the evi dence was anti-Semitic propagan da, but Quebec’s Attorney General Wilfrid Girouard found grounds to lay charges under the regulations against Adrien Arcand, self-styled fuehrer of the N. U. P. James Farr, national organizer and other Fascist leaders. They will be tried in Montreal shortly. VETERANS’ HOME GUARD PROTECTS INDUSTRY But sending known Communists and Fascists to cover was not enough to appease the public. The unknowns, the real fifth column ists, were more dangerous because they could not be watched. What 1-ie country feared were saboteurs, hisperer- of treason and under miners morale. Defence Minis ter Now_n Rogers had a partial answer to public demand. A Home Guard, 5000 strong, as organized from the Canadian Legion. Armed, uniform ed and stationed at vital war in dustries, electric power plants and other public utilities, the Guards took care of apy saboteurs. As for the rest of the fifth col umnists, Justice Minister Ernest Lapointe assured the House oi Commons that Canada be guarded against subversive elements, that the Mounties and their secret ser vice' ..are in complete control of the situation, both present and as it may develop.” “The law and the regulations as they stand over all possible even ualties,” he continued. BEHIND THE SCENES IN WASHINGTON WASHINGTON. — Expansion of the nation’s military air force has begun to put the squeeze on the commercial air lines. Because the army and navy are taking every qualified flyer they can lay their hands on, good air line pilots are hard to get these days. The commercial aviation business is expanding, just as the army and navy air forces are— but the government gets first call on the supply of pilots and the supply is very definitely limited. Once, no major air line would even consider a job application from a pilot who could not show at least 1000 hours in the air. To day a man with 500 air-hours is likely to get work quickly. That doesn’t mean that the air lines are entrusting their transport planes to less capable men; it does mean they have had to go pretty extensively into the pilot-training business themselves, and the 500 hour pilot will get weeks or months of flying in a company training plane before he is made a co-pilot on a regular run. UNCLE SAM USED In the old days when army and navy air forces sailed comfortably along, the great service flying schools were in effect training sta tions for the air lines. Interested in building up a reserve and also in fostering civil aviation, the army and navy had no objecton to see ing some of the best graduates of the flying schools sign up with the air lines. Today the graduates have the stick with the service. So the great source for the air lines is cut off, despite the fact that the service schools are graduating 200 pilots every six weeks these days, as compared vith 200 a year a short time ago. In one sense the air lines are completely subservient to the army and navy, in the event of war. Between 60 and 75 per cent of the 196 air line pilots in the nation are members of either the army or navy air reserve corps. In peace time, members of the resrv can not be called to the colors without their consent; in war, or in a time when the President has proclaimed a national emergency, they can be called. By calling all of these reserves to duty the government could, in effect, ground most of the nation’s air liners. PRIVATE AIRLINES NOT LIKELY TO SUFFER IN WAR Nobody i.' worrying too much over this possibility, however. The army and navy consider the air transport business a highly essen tial industry, which probably would have to be maintained and possi bly even expanded in time of war. As one high army officer puts it: “We wouldn’t be any more likely to pull the air line pilots back into the service than we would be to take engineers off the crack trans continental trains and put them to work running switch engines on military spur tracks.” * * * One aeronautical proposal which leaves the service people almost completely cold is the suggestion women flyers be formed into some sort of auxiliary defense corps to function in war time so that men could be freed for combat duty. The answer to that is there are to day only 86 women flyers in the United States with commercial rat ings. Until there are a lot more than that, the projected auxiliary won’t draw much serious atten tion. j FIGHT PROMISES CROUCH CONTEST Louis To Adopt ‘South American Way’ Against Arturo The Arrogant BY SID FEDER GREENWOOD LAKE, N. Y„ June 14 —(J>)— For the entertain ment of the cash customers and the agony of Arturo Godoy, Joe Louis is planning to adopt the "South American way” himself for his heavyweight title defense against the crouching Chilean in Yankee stadium next Thursday night. Still as peeved as all get-out over the way Godoy made him “look bad” in going 15 rounds in their first meeting last February, the champion and his “brain trust” have figured out a plan of battle whereby the Bomber will crouch for crouch with Arturo The Arro gant—and maybe even try to out crouch him for a point or two. Then, from this position, for all the world like a couple of over sized grasshoppers out looking for bheakfast, Joe will try to straight ten. Godoy up with an assortment of plain and fancy hooks to the body. Up to now, the Bomber has been a pretty fair country clouter, but no one has ever accused him of boasting a particularly brilliant or diversified style. He has been a one-track fighter — shuffe forward and pitch until the other fellow goes down. Whenever he has faced any opposition even slightly unorth odox or out of the ordinary, Joe just didn’t know what to do. He’d be as baffled as a first grade kid with his first problem in long di vision. But Jack Blackburn, the military strategist of the Louis bombing squad, has it all figured out this time.
