FOR THEIR COUNTRY!
Notes of Benton
county Men in
the Armed Forces
I wish to take this opportunity to
thank you for sending me the home
baper. For sorrie time there were
no papers arrived. but now I am‘
receiving them again. '
One of the main things I watch
is the location of other local boys
who are now in service, where they
are and their advancements in the
line of service they are attached'to.
As yet I am only a fireman lst
class, after 14 months of service in
Uncle Sam’s navy. However, at pres
ent. -I am striking for a motor ma
chinists mate rating.
I am doing diesel engine repair
work, and handle engines from 225
to 4000 h.p. Also I enjoy my work
very much, even though they do not
let me have any sea duty.
This evening I chanced to meet a
boy from the Kennewlck valley, one
of my old friends. He was Joe W.
Richenback. ' While talking with
him, I dismveredhe has been on
this same base since last July. He
is in the sub repair and a torpedo

acquaintances. It Will mean a great deal to the fel

Letters received yesterday from
St. Sgt. Jim Reed. who is a ball
turret gunner on a Boeing bomber,
stationed in Africa, makes the re
port -that he is now an ace having
downed his fifth enemy plane. He
evidently was in the group guarding
the big-wigs’ conference in Africa,
for he reports having returned from
a 10-day stay in Casablanca at just
about the time the conference was
held. He’s well and happy and is
sending home a poke of money tol
complete his schooling when he re
turns. l

charter granted by congress in ’OS.
WASHINGTON. - The people of
this country are even now looking
forward to a vast purchase of goods
after the war ends, the U. S. Cham
ber of Commerce announces as the
result of a breliminary survey.
Called a “pilot canvass“ to be
followed later by a more intensive
research, the survey showed that
people wanted new homes, new
automobiles, home improvements
and conveniences, electric irons.
washing machines, refrigerators
and other articles tending to make
living more comfortable.
Twelveo per- cent of the families
interviewed said that they would
buy automobiles; 11 per cent want
ed washing machines and 10 per
cent desired mechanical refrigera
tors. About 1 in 30 said that they
would buy a new home.
Three out of ten homeowners said
that they would make repairs and
improvements in their homes as
soon after the war as possible. Of
these, 15 per cent“ would paint the
outside of their houses; 10 per cent
want interior decoration; 9 per cent
would“ remodel one or more bath
rooms; 7 per cent would moderhiza
their kitchens: 7 per cent mentioned
furnaces, oil burners or other heat
ing installations. and 5 per cent as
serted they would add rooms, either
by remodeling or expansion. _
Eric A. Johnston, chamber presi
dent, stated that while the first job
was to win the war quickly, the or
ganization must realize that "when
peace comes we shall have to turn
to the every-day task of supplying
the nation’s accumulated wants and
in doing so furnish jobs for the mil.
lions who will be released from the
armed services and from war pro
duction."
"We hope," Mr. Johnston contin
ued, “to ascertain facts that will
make easier the huge re-employ
ment task that will follow the end
ing of the war. Theories have their
proper place in post-war planning.
but the problems that peace will
bring to American industry and to
the country as a whole will be solved
only on a foundation of facts.
“The coming survey is divided
into two phases—consumer research
and specific industrial research.
First to be analyzed will be the post
war market. Then, the market
analysis Will be translated into
terms of raw materials, plant capac
ity, machine tools and labor re
quired to meet the demands of con
sumers."
Public Demand Shown.
The chamber decided to'under
take the project on a comprehensive
national basis after the test survey
had disclosed that:
The public seems to be acutely
conscious of things it would like to
buy and almost certainly would buy
within the next six months if the
war should end tomorrow. ,
Four-fifths of the persons inter
viewed said that they were now
ready to make one or more major
purchases of certain specified arti
cles if it were not for the war. >
The test survey also revealed that
most persons. on the basis of pres
ent savings. were not counting on
buying for cash.
“If the limited results of the pre
liminary test should prove typical
of the nation as a whole." said Mr.
Johnston. “the American habit of
installment buying will continue to
be a major factor in large consum
er purchases."

Uncle Sam's lighter 37-millimeter
anti-tank guns are dubbed "tank
killers." They are attached to the
infantry. not the field artillery. and
cost approximately $6.500 each. They
have proved particularly effective
in anti-tank warfare.
They are mobile, mounted on an
tomobile tires and can be rapidly
whisked from place to place. Your
purchase of War Bonds will help
pay the cost of these field pieces so
necessary for our Army in this War.
