Under the inspiring leadership of such men as General MacArthur and Admiral Nimitz, the Japanese have been dis lodged from one position after an other in their ill-gotten empire. In this connection, my people and I are extremely grateful that the Philippines are now being liberated from the tyrannical rule of the enemy. “Happy as I am that my country will soon be able to live in peace again, much remains to be done be fore Japan is fully beaten. Aside from the additional campaigns which will be needed to obtain military victory in the Pacific, there is also the human factor to be considered in that other peoples of the Far East eagerly await to be freed from the enemy. We Filipinos know only too well from experience what it means to be under Japanese domination. “One of the outstanding feats of the war has undoubtedly been the effective fashion in which the United States has overcome the formidable obstacles of distance in supplying the Pacific.

According to reports from state chairmen reach ing Ted R. Gamble, national di rector of the War Finance Division of the Treasury in Washington, the Nation is ready for the huge task. Mr. Gamble was enthusiastic about results. He said “We’re prepared to do the best job in the 7th War Loan.” Mr. Gamble said that "not only is there more money available than ever before come will be Ijf & higher in the pe- I riodofthe7th I HL War Loan than Treasury Henry Morgenthau said seven billions of MORGENTHAU dollars has been assigned as the quota for individual investors and that the major emphasis throughout the drive will be placed on the quota for individ uals. The individual quota is the highest established in any of the previous drives, the secretary said. The E Bond quota- alone is 4 bil lion. The 7th War Loan seeks near ly as much in the one drive as was asked in the first two drives of last year which were held up to this time. The two drives of this year, therefore, will seek nearly as much as was sought in the three drives of 1944. The Secretary stated that there is every evidence that Federal ex penditures are going to remain at a high level for some time to come, and that the Seventh War Loan pro gram was designed to obtain maxi mum funds necessary to prosecute the War from non-bank investors. The securities, which will be sold under the direction of the State War Finance Committees, are as follows: Series E, F and G Savings Bonds, Series C Savings Notes, Vh.% Bonds, 214% Bonds, 1%% Bonds, %% Cer tificates of Indebtedness. The 1%% Bonds will not be offered in the Drive to corporations. The Drive for individuals will ex tend from May 14 to June 30. How ever, an intensification of activities in the sale of Series E bonds began April 9, when millions of persons on payroll savings plans throughout the country were asked to enlarge their participation as a part of the Seventh War Loan. All Series E, F and G Savings Bonds and Series C Savings Notes processed through. the Federal Reserve Banks between April 9 and July 7 will be credited to the Drive. During the final phase of the Drive which will cover the period from June 18 through June 30, subscrip tions will be received from all other non-bank investors for the 214% and 2%% marketable bonds and the cer tificates of indebtedness.

DOGS EARN THEIR KEEP Perform Useful Chores for Their Owners in Country and in Town In the eyes of most persons “dog” spells “pet,” yet by far the largest number of America’s dogs earn their keep by rendering useful services for their owners, according to the Gaines Dog Research Center, New York City. Byway of proof, it need only be pointed out that of the nation-’s esti mated dog population of 15,000,000, almost eleven million live with fam ilies in rural districts—on farms, ranches, and in small towns. Here for the most part they have their special chores —such as keeping an eye on the sheep, bringing in the cows, keep ing watch on the home premises, etc.— chores which would otherwise take up the time and energy of a member of the family or the hired man. The essential usefulness of the dog in American life can be demonstrated in another way. Dogs are usually clas sified in six distinct groups: Sporting, Hounds, Working, Terriers, Toys and Non-sporting dogs. American Kennel Club registrations over the years show the numbers in the three first-men tioned groups definitely kept for useful purposes—to be about twice those of the other three classifications. As a matter of fact, it is the excep tionally large number of hunting dogs within its borders that is responsible for North Carolina, with its approxi mately 980,000 dogs, being the leader in dog population among all the states. This is not to imply that dogs not included in the so-called working and hunting classifications are not useful. A dog is a dog, whether a tiny Chi huahua or a huge St. Bernard, and is capable of performing many useful tasks taught him by his master, in addition to providing joyful com panionship, selfless devotion and other qualities associated with the dog through the ages. But whatever a dog’s contribution to his owner, he occupies a unique position as a member of the family. This is highlighted in a survey made by the Country Gentleman. The study showed that when a dog’s health needs looking after the father of the family attends to it in 44 per cent of the cases, the mother in 38, the son in 23, and the daughter in 10 per cent. (From these figures it is evident that in many familes more than one person is responsible for the dog’s welfare.) The same holds true in the matter of feeding. The mother is responsible for feeding the dog in 73 per cent of the cases, the son in 27 per cent, the father in 24 and the daughter in 22 per cent fkdio “Cat Eyes” Guide Planes Landing In Fog One war secret, now revealed, is the story of radio equipment which guides U. S. Army pilots to runways of air fields hidden by smoke or fog. It also warns them if they are not approaching the ground at a safe angle. Two 25-pound receivers are used. On one the plane picks up a beam marking the center of the runway. The other beam supplies a “glide path” to the runway surface. The wiring of the receivers is a highly delicate job. There are nearly 590 soldered connections. Four hun dred persons, most of them women, in a plant of the Western Electric Com pany, manufacturing unit of the Bell Telephone System, do the work with special tools. No single manufacturer has pro duced the complete equipment, but Bell Telephone Laboratories designed the receivers, and Western Electric ha 3 made thousands of them at the Army’s orders. Pat Pulls “Phoney” One When a police sergeant picked up a dog on the street, he took him to the station house and called his owner by telephone. “Put the dog on the tele phone,” said the master. Skeptically the sergeant held the receiver close to the dog’s ear. “What are you do ing there, Pat?” asked his master. “Get right on home.” Pat, according to the amazed sergeant, obediently jumped off the desk, ran out the front door and headed straight for home.
