One dealer said, however, he had received a good response despite the fact the store had not advertised in adavnce. Another said he was looking for a rush to begin late today, although business in the forenoon was only average. Shoe merchants may sell 15 per cent of their stocks of women’s shoes listed in September inventory re ports to OPA. In announcing the ration-free arrangement, which will continue through January 29, the agency said the action was taken to permit dealers to dispose of certain type of shoes, particularly hard-to sell noverty shoes. If more than $3 is charged for a pair, ration stamps must be surren dered, OPA stressed.

Silver Spring, Md., knew nothing until one day in Italy. * * **' What happened that day was dis closed today by the War Depart ment. Pvt. Kelly, a former bricklayer, was on observation post duty for a front-line regiment of the 36th Texas Division, when he spotted some German mortar and machine gun emplacements. He reported this by telephone to the regimental command post, saying also that there was no artillery observer to direct fire against the enemy guns. Hastily, the Maryland soldier was given instructions and ordered to stand by. A trial round of 105-mm. ammunition was fired and Pvt. Kelly advised the C. P. of the extent of deflection, employing compass direc tions * * * the number of yards the missile was off to the east, south, north or west of the target, * * * in the place of highly technical data customarily used. The third trial round hit squarely on an enemy emplacement. Pvt. Kelly's improvised spotting had proved as efficient as that of an experienced observer, the War De partment said. Other shells fol lowed. striking the positions, with “good effect.” Pvt. Kelly, a regular member of the regiment’s reconnaissance patrol which scouts into enemy territory to locate gun positions and gain other needed information, landed with the 36th Division below Salerno on September 9.

Schools Will Receive More Rationed Food Under New OPA Plan FDA Survey Findings Provide for Increased Meat, Processed Food New allotments of rationed food for schools, the Office of Price Ad ministration announced today, will assure America’s school children of more generous amounts of food in lunchroom and cafeteria meals. The plan is based on an estimate of the amount of rationed food needed to meet school lunch requirements set up by the Food Distribution Administration. The Government's school lunch program, in effect since last Jan uary, is a wartime measure to guar antee school children a well planned and balanced noon meal. The FDA has set up a definite pro gram of food requirements for two distinct types of meals that in clude rationed foods. The OPA’s adjustment of point allowances for school meals is designed to imple ment this program. Public school officials said they believed only one District school— Margaret Murray Washington Voca tional School—is now affiliated with the FDA and so would be the only one eligible to apply for increased allotment. Robert L. Haycock, su perintendent of schools, said, how ever, that he- wanted to give the new order more study before decid ing its scope among the District schools. oasea on Number Served. Allowances announced today rep resent an appreciable increase in -he amount of food allotments for meat and processed foods in most schools. Adjustments will be made on application to local war price and rationing boards. Schools with new lunch programs going into ef fect may apply immediately for in creased allotments for the Janu ary-February period. Today’s allowances are based on the number of persons served at schools in January and February and the amount of food currently used, rather than the amount of food used in December, 1942, the base month under the OPA “in stitutional user’’ rationing program. Heretofore school lunchrooms and cafeterias were given allotments of food much like commercial eating establishments, based on the amount of rationed food used, number of persons served in De cember, 1942, and gross dollars revenue from food services. Co-operation Optional. Co-operation with the Govern ment’s school lunch program is op tional. OPA officials estimated that of approximately 240,000 schools in the United States more than half serve lunch. About 60,000 have con tracts with the FDA to serve stand ard-type meals and to receive fi nancial aid. Schools under contract with FDA are designated as type “A” or “B.” Maximum allowances for each are as follows: Type “A” allowances for a com plete meal, providing from one-third to one-half the daily nutritional re quirements: Sugar, .03 pound; pro cessed food. .6 point; meats and fats, .93 point. Type “B” for a simpler lunch re quiring less rationed food: Sugar, .03 pound; processed food, .4 point; meats and fats, .5 point.

A student, for example, who brings most of his lunch from home and buys milk or ice cream at school will be included only in the count of persons served refreshments. A student who buys soup or a sand wich or his entire meal will be in cluded in the count of those served food. Allotments will be computed separately for the number of per sons served food and those served refreshments. Beginning with the March-April ration period allotments will be is sued during the first 15 days of each period instead of during the 15 days before the start of each period. To make it possible for schools to operate during tl^e first 15 days of each period when allotments are being computed, each board will be allowed a reserve of food points equal to 25 per cent of its January February allotment. A separate certificate for this amount will be prepared by the local board when it computes January-February allot ments. i Preinduction Tests Started At Fort Myer More Than 100 Take Physicals; Won't Be Called for 3 Weeks More than 100 men in addition to those regularly scheduled for induc tion reported to Fort Myer, Va„ today under the new system of giv ing physical examinations weeks ahead of actual induction. Most of the men were uncertain about what lay ahead. Although they bore papers notifying them that they were reporting only for a preinduction physical, many of them had the idea they were sup posed to be inducted today. Others were uncertain whether they would get the service of their choice, whether they would have another furlough after induction and when they would actually be called. Nearly twice as many men as usual went through the induction station because men will continue to be inducted under the old system until the end of this month. Colonel Has Two Routines. Lt. Col. C. E. Royer, commanding officer of the induction station, who gives the introductory talk to the selectees, had to go through two routines today—the old speech and a new one for the benefit of the men taking the preinduction physical. After the latter speech, he was flooded with questions. He explained that the men have as much chance as under the old system to get the service of their choice, at least be tween the Army and Navy. He also told the men they wouldn't be called for actual induc tion for at least three weeks, that they will get no furlough after in duction and that they would be earmarked for one service or anoth er before they left the induction station today. Selectees who understood the new setup said they thought it was a good idea, particularly those who wanted to go in the Navy and now will have at least three weeks to wind up their affairs instead of the one-week furlough granted under the old system. High Numbers Assigned. Men given their preinduction physical today will not be called for induction into the Navy until February 8 at the earliest or into the Army until February 22 at the earliest. Col. Royer said that in order to keep the men being inducted today separate from those taking their pre-induction physicals he had as signed the latter group high num bers. The men are numbered as i they go through the station. Of those taking pre-induction physicals approximately three out of five will go to the Navy.

Jim Lucas shown teaching his Sunday school ■ class at Mount Vernon Methodist Church. —A. P. Photo. faster Sergt. Jim Lucas, marine combat correspondent, who wrote the first eyewitness description of the battle of Tarawa, is teaching young men in a Washington Sunday school class that religion is a reality in foxholes. His class at Mount Vernon Meth odist Church, he said today, wants to know all about his adventures at Tarawa. “As a matter of fact, I have diffi culty keeping them off Tarawa,’’ said the 29-year-old marine. "I do tell them about the fight, but I also tell them about the comfort that true religion gives a man in battle. I saw plenty of evidence that faith in God does give strength to men under fire. "For instance, there was the sergeant who had distinguished himself with valor in a battle. He probably will be hailed soon as a hero. He hadn’t been very religious before. After Tarawa he told me: ‘God and I have a pretty good work ing agreement after this.’ “One youngster told me he had heard there were no atheists in fox holes. He tried to call on God. but he was never able to make contact. He came through the fight alive, but that “no contact’ worried him. An other marine who lived through the fight with comfort through prayer told me: ‘Without God I couldn’t have made it.” “I am telling these young men who are about to go into the service that they should learn to make that contact with God. I pass on to them my favorite text from the 46th psalm: ‘Be still, and know that I am God.’ I tell them that unless they take time to know the creator, and to ‘be still’ beforehand, there will be little chance that God will speak to them, or comfort them when the bullets start flying. “After one of our bloody battles our chaplain was sent back to a supply base, and at the request of the boys, brought back a large supply of New Testaments.” Sergt. Lucas tells the story of Chaplain Norman Darling, who waded into Tarawa along with the first wave of fighting marines. The chaplain stayed right at the front most of the time, the sergeant said, and during one hour's time con ducted a service for more than 200 men killed. “I was with him,” said Sergt. Lucas. “That funeral service was a very moving thing.” The fighting marine is no novice ;at teaching Sunday school. He has had classes before, when he was in Washington during his indoctrina tion at marine headquarters. He taught previously at St. Paul’s Methodist Church, Muskogee, Okla.; Boston Avenue Methodist Church Tulsa, an4 at a church in New Zea land. Mrs. Roosevelt Sees Congestion 'Menace' In Zone Restrictions Intends to Inspect Bradbury Heights Area, Make No Apology Mrs. Roosevelt today told a press conference that zoning restrictions which prevent colored persons from living in any part of the District where they otherwise might be able to afford to build houses may ulti mately bring about overcrowded housing conditions that will “men ace” the entire city. Asked if she thought all zoning regulations should be changed at once to permit occupancy by colored families, Mrs. Roosevelt said each case arising should be judged “on its own merits.” She discussed the Negro housing question when reporters asked if she intended to grant a requested apology to the Bradbury Heights Citizens’ Association, which has ob jected to a statement in her column that there was Bradbury Heights opposition to erection of apart ments on a site "in the center of a Negro residential district.” The President’s wife said she did not intend to make any apology or take any action on the association’s request. She intends, however, to visit the area at the earliest oppor tunity. She had been informed, she said, that there was “considerable” Negro occupancy “there,” but had never been there herself. Sees Housing Made Difficult. “If you restrict by zoning a part of town where Negroes could afford to build,” she said, “you are making decent housing difficult.” Informed that property owners were worried in some cases about the value of their holdings. Mrs. Roosevelt replied, "It is unfortunate that these few have to suffer.” Each situation has to be decided in the light of the “greatest good for the greatest number,” she continued. Ultimately, she believes that housing needs will overbear the objection of “the few,” she said. She added that in some cases col ored property holders were object ing to building for their own race as a detriment to their property holdings. While it is “natural” to wish' to avoid financial loss, Mrs. Roosevelt concluded, she believes the good of every one should be a standard of conduct. Urges Postwar Night Work Ban. She recalled she had said many times before that crowding of Negroes is already a health and social menace for their own race and may spread to the entire city if housing arrangements are not made for them. Turning to the national scene, Mrs. Roosevelt declared that she be lieved industrial night work for both men and women should be abolished after the war except where absolutely essential. She explained wartime requirements have brought about night work in many indus tries that she believes can afford to drop H after the war. Long night hours, she believed, turn a person’s "life” into a mere "existence.” She also advocated a simple in ternational language which would make it “easy for people to talk to one another.” She said that Esper anto, however, had not seemed to be particularly successful.
