In a letter to his brother, Adrian Clemmons, this past week, ? Esso frankly stated, "I was scared to death." At Okinawa the Navy took in a Marine Division and stood by d aiding in the fight until the island was declared secured on June 22. During that time over . ISO air raids were made on the j ships by suicide planes. Esso said 'e it would not have been near as P" bad if they had just come over and dropped bombs. Instead of doing that they would head for ;te some ship and the only way to en avert disaster was to blow them 't- up in the air. 'We did our share ck of that but we were hit by one in of them a week after the start at of the invasion. We suffered some casualties. I didn't get a IC" scratch, but I was scared to d- death." ill Esso's ship has been in four of n the island invasions and is now back in a rear area, presumably a undergoing repairs.

Those men were greatly disillusioned when they discovered that the GI bill does not provide for a gift but for a loan backed by ample security," he said. t He declared that there would' be changes in the bill which would work to the convenience of both the veterans and the banks, but that the banks would be compelled to abide by the rules set up in the legislation governing the bill. "We would advise veterans not to rush into loans," he said, "without giving ample thought to the risks involved. The banks stand ready and anxious to help them work out their problems and, under the provisions of the GI bill, we arc in position to render them great assistance." However, he cautioned against haste in deciding to invest money in a business in which they have little or no experience. Mr. Neal was introduced by J. N. Coburn.

The new "A" j gasoline ration book will be issued at the same time, he said. * Distribution, Johnson said, will * take place from December 3 b through December 10. The new ^ "A" gasoline books will go into n use December 22, and war ration P book five will be used soon after the first of the year for food rationing and for rationing of shoes. li The new book five will be a n better book, Johnson said. It will : be easier to carry and handle. It I1 will be just as long as book four hut nnli, half aa uiirlo Tho num. t] bcr and arrangement of stamps h is more convenient. The new q stamps will be the same size, but y will not have both a letter and a number as the present stamps do and OPA hopes the new edition will be the last of the scries of wartime ration books. Johnson said. At the current rate of making " stamps good, Johnson explained? five red stamps and five blue stamps at the beginning of each ? month?war ration book five can last, if needed, about fifteen months. Because of the enor- v mous job required to print and distribute ration books for about v 130 million people it was decided (n tUn niJ. ~ .1 V lu in; un uic oaic oiuc <tiiu jjiuvide for this period and avoid the ? v o expense of having to get out still another book later. Since 3 war ration book five will not go into effect before January 1st, It v will be necessary to use other stamps in book four as substitu- v tes for processed food and meat fats during the interim period, v Interim period use of shoe and sugar stamps will not be neces- . sary, Johnson said, since the A stamps provide for these items in books three and four will carry 1 the programs without resort to substitutions. 5 War Ration Book Five will be t Continued on page 2) v Most of The News All The Time ^ ED EVERY WEDNESDAY. o Strike Announces His Airmen Will Join Fleets Of Bombers Attacking Japan Within Eight Days \MERICAN FLEET IN DARING BLOWS Hits Inside Tokyo's Outer Bay To Destroy Convoy; Truman Will Ask For Easy Access To News GUAM?Lt.
