T^e Advisory Committee on Met
als of the National Academy of
Sciences has recommended to the
War Production Board processes for
making alumina?the basic material
of aluminum ? direct from clay.
Aluminum in its primary state is the
most plentiful of the metals?it is
almost everywhere Before the war
there wasn't enough demand to jus
tify exploitation of low grade
sources. But now all this has chang
ed?now we are overlooking nothing
which may give us metals.
Last year Americans were buying
more household gadgets and appli
anpps than thev had ever bought be
fore, even in the boom years before
the 1929 crash But since Pearl Har

grown larger, we have been saving
Savings Rise 70 Per Cent
The war did not bring a time of
free and easy spending to the av
erage American etty family, the
gadgets we used to spend our mon
ey on are lacking. But it did bring
a big increase in war bonds bought
and taxes paid ? something which
will help all of us when the war is
over and we begin to rebuild our
lives. The savings of city people, ac
cording to the U. S Department of
Labor, have been about 70 per cent
higher in 1942 than last year Fami
lies whose 1942 incomes did not
change saved half again as much in
an average 1942 quarter as during
a similar period in 1941. while those
whose incomes had grown saved an
average 57 per cent of the enlarged
These savings help keep down the
high cost of living now, help us fight
the war when they are translated in
to war stamps and bonds, and will
help those of us who own them after
Past-War Thinking in Order
It is well that we think now and
then of what will come after the war
and make such plans as we can for
that time, both as individuals and as
members of a community of nations.
Friday, August 14th is the first an
niversary of the master plan for a
hnttiir irrirlH :ifn?r ? h" war has been
won ,the plan set dpwn by President
Roosevelt and Prime Minister
Churchill of Great Britain in the At
lantic Charter and since accepted by
all the 28 nations fighting with us
against the Axis tyrants
What this charter says is that the
United Nations intend to build a
world in which free peoples may
live in peace and a world in which
these nations may trade freely, the
one with the other 'This would mean
a world loyal to the ideal of those
"Four Freedoms" named by Presi
dent Roosevelt?Freedom of Speech,
Freedom of Religion. Freedom from
Want and Freedom from Fear.
Priorities Given on Cargoes
Under the system of helping our
friends and allies known as Lend
Lease we are sending supplies and
finished weapons tq.all parts of the
world. But we also depend on our
friends and allies?especially those
in Latin America, but elsewhere, too
? for a great variety of vital war
material. This week. WPB announc
ed that some 500 items imported from
every corner of the globe had been
placed on an emergency list, so that
they might be sure of space in ships
bound for America The list is a long

ucts. chemicals, lumber, in an alto
After reaching a low point,
possibly not more than 40 per

back on the highways to reflect

OPA Fights Price Rises
The Office of Price Administra
tion continues its unending battle to
keep the cost of living down, to pre
vent evasion of tl ' price ceilings.
Last week OPA warned bedding
manufacturers and dealers that they
must stop combination sales forcing
purchasers to buy unwanted mer
chandise in order to get an article
which Could have been bought as a
separate until last March In other
words .nobody can insist that you
buy a bedroom suite to obtain
bedsprmg. OPA placed a temporary
ceiling price, on lamb last week to
prevent a rapid advance in prices.
From now on milk and cream in bnt
tles or paper containers cannot cost
more than it did last March and peo
ple selling drinks in paper cups or
containers must stop charging a sep
arate price for the cups if they did
not charge for them last March.
With only a few months remain
ing before eold weather, the prob
lem of fuel for the East grows daily
more serious. Last week the Presi
dent pointed out to eastern house
holders who burn fuel oil that "there
can !)?? no guarantee they will get
enough oil to meet even their mini
mum needs." Petroleum Coordinator
Harold L Ickes praised eastern in
dustrial consumers of fuel oil who
have saved 21.232.000 barrels of fuel
oil by changing to other fuels. OPA

Allied Forces Take
The Offensive and
Drive on Solomons
(Continued from page one)
Action in the Aleutians off Alas
ka has been overshadowed by the
Solomons Islands attack, and it is
apparent that no drive of any size
was directed against the Japs there.
Turmoil has broken loose in sev
eral cities in India following Mohan
das Gandhi's proposal to stage a dis
obedience movement. An unofficial
report today stated that about 200
persons had been killed and that 900
others had been wounded. Rioting is
spreading from city to city, making
it appear that the Japs are receiving
material aid for a planned invasion.
Offered a bit of air raid, the Chi
nese are making progress against the
Japs. Allied airmen recently bombed
several important Jap strongholds in
China with telling effect.
The hot spot in the war?the Bal
kans?is still smoking with life and
death action. The Chetniks, with the
odds two to one against them, just
recently staged a small counteroffen
sive nf their own with great success.
The Germans have started releas
ing French prisoners of war in ex
change for volunteers who will go
to work in German factories.
No recent bombings have been
made over Germany, but a lone Nazi
airman attacked an English naval
hospital last evening, killing twelve
members of the staff.
While the Russian front sags bad
ly and offensive operations are
started in the Pacific, more Ameri
can troops are moving inot England.
Their efforts and equipment are be
ing synchronized with those of the
British, and it has been said that they
are not there for defensive action
