'Then gently scan

—By Mr. Modestus—
What a juicy Plum!
That is not a Plum, ray son—
That is what the world knows as
Nevertheless, Sonny thinks that it
is a Pluin—
And Sonny, whether he be one of
Jesse Jones' boys—
Or one of the numerous members of
Hie Petroleum Tribe—
Has been dreaming of what he could
do with that Plum—
He wants to preserveit, and can it,
For his Family, and their 65 Friends.
For: Rubber is the New Industry—
Which the Great American Way has
Seen searching for—
Rubber is just one of the marvellous
Amily of the Plastics—
We might almost say that it it the
Hirst of the Plastics—

Mixed with other ethereal fractions

While chemists sleuthed alcohol,

Stirring up Kansas and Nebraska
Who hoped that this rubber would
absorb so much alcohol—
Squeezed from the rich grain har

Chicago Building Trades
Against Forced Savings
Chicago, HI.—The Chicago and Cook
County Building and Construction
Trades Council, representing 125,000
workers, unanimously adopted a reso
lution favoring the "voluntary and
democratic method" for implementing
the plan to have at least ten per cent
of the national income invested in war
savings bonds "rather than forced
savings by law." The council recom
mended that each of its members sub
scribe ten per cent of his income
through the payroll allotment plan or
any other plan in force for the pur
chase of war savings bonds.
Total purchases by 32 labor groups
affiliated with the council since De
cember 7 were $12,189,857.
Pulp is used to make lightweight
"jump suits" for parachute troops.

TWO MILLION IN
WAGE RAISE FOR
Detroit, Mich. (ILNS) —Employes
of Detroit's municipally-owned trac
tion system are rejoicing over wage
adjustments, awarded by an arbitra
tion board, which are said to make
car and bus operators here the world's
highest paid mass transportation
Under the award, bus drivers get
a 20 per cent pay increase and motor
men and conductors on street cars get
15 per cent. The increase will add al
most $2,000,000 annually to the in
comes of the 4,500 employes. The pay
boosts are retroactive to April 1,
amounting to between $135 and $160
back pay per employe.
Street car motormen and conductors
will receive $1 an hour after a year's
service and bus operators $1.10 per
hour. The overtime rate, as set by
the award, is doubled. Operators in
structing students are to be paid $1 a
day extra. Formerly they received 50
cents a day.
The wage increases came a year
after an arbitration award which in
creased the annual earnings of the
men about $1,000,000 through an
hourly pay raise of 6 cents.
What fyouliiuf, WUU
Ships of the Destroyer type com
prise the bulk of our fighting ships
in the American Navy. Their aver
age displacement is about 1800 tons,
and they are fast, po'werful, and
hard hitting. They have been par
ticularly effective in convoy duty and
gave a good account of themselves
in the Coral Sea engagement. They
cost approximately $3,800,000 each.
Every N .ivv shipyard is turning
out Destroyers in record time. They
are essential for our two-ocean
Navy. Purchase of more and more
War Bonds will assure all-out pro
duction of these vital units for the
Navy. Buy every pay day. If ev
erybody invests at least ten perce#
of his income in War Bonds we con
do the job.
