As personal flying and feeder air-

this is easily available. Both the

with information and advice from
the early decision to lave an air-

The usual community will find that
its State Capitol offers a wealth of
information. Most states have avi-

officials know the local conditions

the neighboring towns are planning,
and usually have data on the num-

GI Is Finally Defined
By General Stilwell
General Joseph W. Stilwell in a
recent news story defined a GI as
"A GI (pronounced 'gee-eye') is
a special breed of American who
inhabited North Africa, Italy,
France, Germany, Guadalcanal, Sal-
pan, Okinawa. Luzon, Iceland,
years 1941 through 1945.
"Very few of them were to be
found within the continental lim-
its of the United States during
that time. The term 'GI' is usually
applied to enlisted men and, has a
negative effect when applied to of-
ficers. The GI\ was' superbly
equipped, but happiest when in
dirty fatigues with a baseball cap.
"He cooked meals in his helmet.
in which he also shaved and
Burma, China, India, Korea, Japan washed. He swore in "good style,
and' other places during the war liked pretty girls, milk, steak, beer,
cheesecake, swing music, and was
a sucker for a place called the
U. S. A.
"He hated Japs, Germans, C ra-
tions, draft dodgers,, and a thing
called 'chicken' (not to be confused
with the fowl of the same name).
"Race? All races. Just go visit
the cemeteries for proof. Names?
Murphy, Jones, Galliopolis, Cohen,
Damibroyski, Smith-the works.
"Ways 'to recognize the GI: No
matter where you find him he
gri)pes when things are going well;
he keeps. his mouth shut when the
going is tough.
"Accomplishment of the GI: He

DRAFT CARDS STILL NEEDED
All male citizens of the United
States between the ages of 18 and
68 were reminded, again this week
that they must carry their selec-
tive service re prtration cards. Mid-
May was set as the earliest pos-
sible date for discontinuance of
this regulation. The FBI currently
is seeking 13,697 draft evaders, ac-
cording -to Washington reports.
Great men never feel great, and
small men never feel small.
IS THIS A 1C KP i)F PAPER ?
The CIO--United Steel Workers Union said that its strike
does not violate its contracts with steel companies. Here
is the "no strike" clause taken from a typical contract.
LET THE WORDS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!
"During the term of this Agreement, neither
the Union nor any Employee, individually or
collectively, shall cause or take part in any
strike, or other interruption or any impeding
of production at any plant of the Company
covered by this Agreement. Any Employee or
Employees who violate the provisions of this
Section may be discharged from the employ
of the Company in accordance with the
procedure of Section 8 of this Agreement."
This provision, or one similar to it, is contained
in each contract between the Union and the
various steel companies. These contracts
continue by their terms until the
autumn of this year.

And any housewife here -in Port St. J.e canl

more than a three per cent increase for most
things than ,she did in 1942 and 1943.
True, prices did-'not spiral like they: did in

MOST COSTLY BATTLE
The most savage and costly battle of the
recent World War, for the American forces,
was not fought in- Africa or Europe, but in
the Pacific on Okinawa. That is the story
conveyed in the release of official' figfires by
the government, in its report on the final
battle of the war.
More than 79.500 Amierican soldiers,' sailOrs.
and marines piled up the casualty totals for
that epic fight, both during the actual combat
and immediately 'thereafter whin.battle' ta-
tigue exacted its grim toll. The American
losses in the Battle of the Bulge stood at
.around 67000. .
Some 21,342 army inen fell at Okinawa as
battle casualties. The marines, proportion-
ately fewer in the battle muster, suffered a
slightly higher percentage of' casualties al-
though the actual figure was smaller--16,313.
To this ensanguined total the navy added its
9,700, mostly as a. result of the terrible fight
it waged against the Japanese suicide planes.
This record is something the public may
well keep in mind as it studies postwar de-
mobilization problems. -Boston Globe.
