United States s the first step on
jbe road to permanent world-wide
peace.” .
* The outgoing vice president add
ed in an address prepared for a
meeting of tha American Statist!
cal Association, that other natrons
are praying for full employment in
this country not because they love
me United States, but because they
know that without full employment
j,ere there is world-wide trouble.”
Under-employrr,ent in America,

levels and trade.
Wallace predicted that one of
the first pieces of legislation to

focal, State and Federal go/drn
ments An attemp. would be made
t0 0a. culate the expenditures need
ed to assure full employment, and,
„r, t,ns other hand, the prospective
actual expenditures.
If the estimated expendi’uves
were less than the amount needed
o guarantee full employment, the
Government firs', would be directed
o take steps to encourage greater
prjveif employment. If that failed,
it would step in with a spending
program intended to make up the
jifffj ence.
ROME, Dec. 27—(UP)—Sudden
ly halting their slow withdrawal
along the Fifth Army front in the
Ligurian coastal sector, German
forces today unleashed a heavy
counter-offensive officially describ
ed as being in ‘‘some strength.”
Details of the fighting were ob
i scure but headquarters spokesmen
reported that the enemy drive was
preceded by heavy artillery fire.
The fighting was centered near
the town of Gallicano, a half mile
from the Servhio river and about
15 miles inland on t h e western
coast of Italy. The offensive was
launched both to the east and
west of the town, it was reported.
On the central Fifth Army front,
enemy artillery fire increased in
strength and German planes drop
ped anti-personnel bombs in the
vicinity of San Eenedetto, six miles
behind the lines, and northwest of
Grizzana, three miles to the rear.
Although details were lacking, it
was reported that the Germans
; along the Bologna sector had
| launched infantry attacks against
advanced American positions.
Eighth Army troops on the east
ern flank of the front, supported
by heavy artillery, continued the
mopping up of German rear guard
units along the 10-mile stretch be
tween Faenza and Bagnacavallo.
Most of the action was along the
hne of the Naviglio canal. German
troops, retreating through their
own mine fields on the east bank
of the canal, were turning every

Comrade Tells Of UP
Correspondent’s Death
—(Correct)— (UP) —Jack Frank
ish, United Press war correspon
dent, was killed instantly today by
a German bomb.
The bomb exploded about 18 feet
from where Frankish was stand
ing outside a small hotel. Three
Belgian soldiers were killed by
the same bomb and about 20 First
Army public relations officers and
men and half a dozen war corres
pondents were slightly injured.
Frankish was felled by the con
cussion of the exploding bomb and
struck in the back by fragments.
Death was instantaneous. He was
30 years old.
The hotel was virtually demolish
(This dispatch was held up until
the widow, Mrs. Barbara Frankish,
was notified yesterday in El Cen
tro, Calif., where she is living with
her two children, Gail and Brian.)
The bomb was one of a string
dropped by a flight of four Ger
man planes.
Frankish was inside the hotel
when the planes approached. A
bomb fell nearby and he and sev
eral others ran outside to see what
was happening.
The roar of the approaching
planes was audible and most of
the others raced for cover. How
ever, Frankish waited a moment
and did not start to run until one
of the planes suddenly swooped
down and released a bomb. Too late
he tried to make o dash for It,
but the bomb felled him.
Frankish had remained at t h •
hotel today instead of going to the
front because he was exhausted
from the strain of covering tht
break-through on the First Armj
front during the last week. Onlj
four nights ago he rode a jeep in
bitter cold 200 miles in order to
file his dispatch when normal com
munications channels were not
available. _

OUR record shows that armaments and implements
of war produced in 1944 amounted to 78% of our
total output;, while vital war transportation equipment,
equally important, made up the remainder.
The record has likewise been one of increasing plant effi
ciency ... of new discoveries in the technique of armament
building ... and of economies which have returned to the
government huge savings against budgeted cost. It is a
record in the tradition of Pullman-Standard’s 85 years of
industrial accomplishment and leadership—a record typical
of the American system of free enterprise
The future of American industry will depend largely upon
the resourcefulness and foresight of management in bridg
ing the gap between all-out production for war and the de
velopment of capacity volume on goods for peacetime mar
kets. In planning ahead—in blueprinting our reconversion
program—we have not only helped to visualize a future of
postwar employment for essential war workers and return
ing veterans, but we believe we are performing a service to
our national economy.
