D. C. Flyer Reported
Missing Is Believed By Wife to Be Safe Second Lt. Joseph W. Kendall 27, a bombardier on a Flying For tress who was formerly in th( plumbing and heating business here was reported as missing in ac tion by the War Department to day. but his wife, the former Nadine Brince field of 2627 E v a r t s street ; f ' N.E.. has reason : to believe that he is safe in Germany. She got the dread telegram on S a t u r d a y, October 9. in forming her It. Krndall. that her husband was missing in an action of October 2. the date of a raid on Munich. On the fol lowing Tuesday she got this letter from Henry Koeth. a sergeant gun ner who used to flv in the same ship with Lt. Kendall. ‘1 am sorry to inform you that Joe went down yesterday. I was flying right next to them and I saw the plane hit and I saw 10 parachutes open up. I am not sure, of course, that, they landed safely but I think so and they are prob ably prisoners of war by now. I know the kind of telegrams the Government sends out so that is why I am writing you this. He probably told you I have been trans ferred to a different crew.” Mrs. Kendall, who was working at the War Production Board when her husband was drafted in 1941, immediately wrote to the families of the other crew members "And I wrote the sergeant.” she said, "and told him I would be grateful for the rest of my life." Mrs. Joseph Peirce of Syracuse, wife of the pilot of the plane, tele phoned her immedaitely on receiv ing the hopeful news. “We were both laughing and cry ing over the telephone as if we were crazy." Mrs. Kendall said. "I knew her at Caspar. Wyo., and I met all tke crew of the plane there while they were training. We had a wonderful time there. W? knew it couldn't last and we lived from day to day. Families of the other crew members replied by mail. Sergt. Koeth's letter r°rt°in.ly was appreciated."

ALLIED HEADQUARTERS IN THE SOUTHWEST PACIFIC. Nov. 1—When a Liberator bomber, minus cuns and motor power, crashed into the sea four days ago under the ■ murderous lashing of enemy planes' , machine guns. Army headquarters wrote the plane off as missing. But four members of the bomber's crew survived, and today they were in an Australian hospital while a headquarters spokesman told of the plane's gallant fight against heavy odds. The survivors, whose names were withheld, said their plane’s objective j was Pomclaa in the Celebes. They set, afire a 4.000-ton enemy cargo ship in the harbor and destroyed a ; total of 10 planes. But the real excitement came after the bomber was disabled. The Liberator lost part of its ver tical stabilizer when it struck some tree tops while flying low over a small island. Then one motor was knocked out and another lost Its power. Despite these handicaps, the Lib erp'^r's quits accounted for eieht of its ten total enemy planes that da'. Short on motor power, but still struggling to make it back to their field, the crew threw overbe-rd all their guns in an effort to lighten the load. Then two enemy fighters attacked, leisurely spraying the helpless bomber with machine gun bullets. Only four members of the crew were alive when the plane crashed into the sea. After two days on life rafts, the four were rescured by searching Liberators and were removed to the hospital in Australia. The rescuring bombers were led by Maj. rtobert \V. Horn of Los Angeles. Among other pilots who participated in the search was Capt. Douglas S. Craig, Cleveland Heights. Ohio 19 German Prisoners Flee Canadian Camp By fh*' A'SociaiPd Press. WINNIPEG.

Quite as much in public service as our Street Car and Bus system is our Lost and Found Department. Those employed to run it can read simply from the nature of articles turned in, much about the weather—hobbies—style trends—reading preferences—ves, even some thing about the emotional disturbances of war. fINf WEAtWfE wm HAVING Since Pearl Harbor more than 47,000 lost articles have been turned in to this depart ment. Falling weather raises a big harvest of Umbrellas; clear w eather stimulates a crop of Cameras—with extra "finders". Among the many different items passengers forget to remember are Gloves, Coats, Books, Pack ages, Jewelry, Purses, and once, just fancy this —a huge beef roast already cooked! This year SI3,953 in money has been returned to grateful owners. too. What happens to unclaimed articles? Capi tal Transit keeps a lost article about a month (with the exception of money and valuables which are kept longer) and if unclaimed, gives it to the person who found it. If you or a friend lose something on one of our Street Cars or Buses, report it promptly to Capital Transit Company’s Lost and Found Department . . . centrally located at 1416 F St., N.

President Hits Attack On Bullitt as 'Dirty Political Falsification’ By rhf Associated press. PHILADEPHIA, Nov. 1— On the eve of a hotly contested mayoralty election, the Philadelphia Record published today a letter from Presi den1 Roosevelt calling attacks on William C. Bullitt, the Democratic candidate, a mass of falsehoods.” "This attack." the President's let ter said, "is another piece of dirty political falsification.” The President referred to a pam phlet, "Who is William C. Bullitt?" which the Record said bore the im print. "Issued by the Republican Central Campaign Committee." It was sent to him with a letter from the Record, which is supporting Mr. Bullitt, former Ambassador to Rus sia and France. Statements Quoted. The Records letter said. In part. "You will note on page 22 the state ment, that, after Secretary of .State Hull cabled Bullitt to follow the French government on its flight from Paris to Vichy, 'the Ambassadot ignored the order of his superior. He remained in Paris and helped the Nazi troops occupy the city.' * * * "We also call to your attention a Picture on page 5, 'Wm. C. Bullitt marching in Warsaw in 1935 with Gen. Herman Goering.’ * * * We have learned that the picture of Bullitt with Goering was taken at the funeral of Premier Pilsudski of Poland. Did Bullitt go there rf his own volition or was lie ordered there by the State Department?” President Explains. In his reply, President Roosevelt said: "He attended the funeral of Marshal Pilsudski as representative of the United States When you or I attend an official funeral we walk *n’<> the church in the procession with anybody we are told to walk with. It is not our choice—and this campaign pamphlet is a rather un intelligent attempt to imply an un truth.. "In the rase of the fall of Paris, communications with the United States were practically broken off He did the obvious and right thing to do use every effort to save Pari? at'd its civilian ponulation from de struction and death."

[2 of 7 Boys Who Fled I Training School Still Sought Two of seven boys who walked away from the National Training School for Boys on Bladensburg iroad Saturday night remained fugi tives today. The others had given themselves up or had been anpre hended bv police. At least two faced juvenile court j action for breaking into the home of Herman H. Allen, at 3042 Monroe street N.E., and stealing clothing and jewelry valued at $125. and later stealing an automobile which led to their downfall, police said. The machine, taken from the 3600 block of Twenty-fourth street N.E., was abandoned after the boys j had driven into a dead-end street j in the 4800 block of South Dakota! ■avenue, but police caught the pair.

C BUY MORE WAR BONDS and STAMPS There’s Good Nutrition and Don’t you believe it! \t £ •m t ■+ * #-4*4 « j .... j | EVERY WEEK I'm amazed at the num- 1 ber of letters we receive, starting off I with "Is it true that . . ." and going 1 on to ask about something which is 1 almost in the i-alm of superstition. For 9 instance, a surprising number of peoplf 1 still think it's dangerous to eat cucum bers and milk together, yet they will use a sour erpam dressing on cucumber.-. And so many have t>-• asking questior about canned foods. I thought perhap you too might like to know some of the answers. HOME CANNED "Is it true that I should cool; homr cnnnrd vegetables hrtnre using?" Defi nitely yes Each home-canned vege table should be cooked for 15 minutes immediately after opening the con- | tainer, evpn before tasting, to insure | complete safety And if you put some away for later use. that should be I cooked again before eating. | COMMERCIALLY CANNED "Is it true that the liquid of commer- |j dally canned peas should be thrown 1 away’’" No! If the peas are good to "at, 1 the liquid they're packed in certainly 9 is too! Liquid in all canned foods is J simply the water in which the food is 1 cooked: it, contains yaluable food ele- 1 m°nts. and should either be cookeo 1 back into the food or used in sauce or is soup. I "Is it true that. I must cook commer- | daily canned vegetables after removing |s them from the ran?" Again, no. Com- 1 merrially canned foods are already 1 cooked thoroughly and may be used 1 just as they come from the tin can. 9 FOOD IN OPEN CANS "Is it true that it's dangerous to leare food in an open can?" No! The Depart rrrnt of Agriculture says of commer ciallv cannpd foods: "Whether in Un original can or in another container, the principal precautions for keeping food are—Keep it cool and keep it | covered." But the opened can must be |g immediately put under refrigeration. % "Is it true that food which has dis- Is colored the inside of a tin ran is danger- g| 011 s to eat?" No. You have noticed how 1 silverware is discolored by the sulphur 9 in a cooked egg; the same process some- 9 times discolors the inside of a tin can, § but it's entirely harmless. % "Is it true that rust on the outside of a 1 tin can means the food inside has 1 spoiled?" No: not unless the rust had 9 developed to the point where the can 1 Is leaking. But wartime tin cans must 1 be handled and stored carefully, where 9 they'll stay dry and cool. "Is it true that commercially canned « foods begin to spoil after a year?" Of 1 course not—they are thoroughly heat - Is processed in the course of canning, and 1 will keep indefinitely provided nothing 1 happens to make the can leak. % AND FINALLY: | "Is it true that you like to answer all 1 kinds of questions on food. Mrs. Wright?" 9 YES! But please, oh' please! Make § those questions definite, and detailed § when you write, and address your let- 9 ters to Julia Lee Wright. P. O. Box f 660-SS. Oakland 4.
