Distilleries Are Now Running 24 Hours For the first time in the history of the beverage distilling industry, a 24-hour-per-day production schedule has been adopted by a distilling cor poration. Distilleries are now entire ly devoted to the making of alcohol for war uses. The total output of these plants?high-proof alcohol and 'high wines' which are dedistilled in to 190-proof alcohol?goes to help meet requirements for smokeless gunpowder, synthetic rubber, chem ical warfare, lend-lease and other The 43rd Week Of The War The Navy announced that U. S. Army troops, "covered and support ed by units" of the U. S. Navy, have recently occupied positions in the Andreanof group of the Aleutian Is lands. Occupation was effected with out enemy opposition. This chain of some 24 islands stretches for 240 miles and the largest of the islands is about 275 miles from Japanese-oc cupied Kiska and is well adapted for use as an air base. The Navy said U. S. heavy bombers and fighter craft are already operating from air fields in these islands. During a week of heavy fighting in New Guinea, Gen. MacArthur's ground forces drove the enemy back some 40 miles from a point 32 air miles from the allied base of Port Moresby past Efogi Village, last im portant Japanese base on the south em side of the Owen Stanley Moun tains, Gen. MacArthur's headquar ters reported October 5th. American Flying Fortresses based in Britain attacked an airframe factory at Me aulte and a German airfield at St. Omer October 2, and returned with out losses after shooting down 13 enemy fighters. U. S. submarines operating in Far Eastern waters sank five enemy ships and probably sank two more, and damaged another. Army, Navy and Marine corps fliers from Sep tember 25 to 28 destroyed 42 Japan ese Aircraft and damaged three oth ers in the Solomons, without com bat loss of any U. S. planes, and hit two enemy cruisers, damaged an other ship and probably sank a large transport. The Navy reported the 8,378-ton Naval transport George F. Elliott and the small transport Greg military uses. The round-the-clock schedule has stepped up the com pany's production to an annual rate in excess of sixty million proof gal lons?or its equivalent of 30 million gallons of alcohql.

Ship welders Working to Defeat the Axis Along with sailors and merchant marine seamen, shipyard repairmen are doing their best to keep 'em sailing. This unique photo was made in the Todd shipyards in Brooklyn, N. V., as a crew of welders use acetylene torches to repair a giant vessel in one of the drydocks. The men are removing bent plates from the side of the ship. {Central I'rctt) ory were sunk in the Solomons but most of their personnel was saved. The Navy announced October 5 that the 1,526 ton submarine Grunion, has been overdue in the Pacific for some time and "must be presumed to be lost." The normal complement of the vessel would be 65 officers and men. The torpedo smking of four more United Nations Merchantmen was announced. War Production and Small Business Following an 8.754-mile two-weeks tour of the Nation?kept secret as a j special wartime safeguard? Presi dent Roosevelt said the War Produc tion program is going, on the whole, extremely well, allowing for a norm al small percentage of lag in a pro gram made a bit higher than hu man ingenuity could carry out. He said he thought the production pro gram would be achieved to the ex tent of 94 or 95 per cent of the goals outlined by him last January. The President said the war spirit he found in all parts of the country was in excess of the war spirit in Wash ington, and the people of the country are ready to sacrifice for the war ef fort to a greater extent than any steps yet proposed in Washington. American shipyards produced 93 vessels during September, a rate of three ships a day, the Maritime Com mission announced. The total dead weight tonnage of 1,009,800 was the greatest record in world shipbuild ing history, the Commission said, and assures that the goals of 8,000,000 tons this year and 16,000,000 tons next year will be met. WPB Chairman Nelson asked Con gress tor immediate creation of a war liabilities adjustment board to help protect the small businessman. Commerce Under Secretary Taylor also recommended establishment of a permanent agency whose task would be to "husband small busi ness." He estimated that 300,000 re tail stores face failure before the end of 1943 because of government I restrictions, material shortages and the draft. Army and Selective Service The War Department opened an intensified campaign to recruit 18 and 19-year-old volunteers for the Army. Ttiey may now volunteer for the Quartermaster Corps, Ordnance Department, Chemical Warfare Serv ice, Medical Department and the Corps of Military Police, in addition to the previous choices.

Things To Watch For In The Future The Ruml pay-as-you-go plan for paying income taxes the same year the income is earned, by "skipping a year," apparently has been shelved for the present, but he and many others insist the plan is still very much alive . . . There likely will be a general readjustment of automo bile liability insurance rates after gas rationing becomes nationwide . . j Canning science has now figured a way to put that "all-time all-Ameri can" combination, ham and eggs, in- j to tin-canned form, for the soldiers . . . Plywood will get a big oppor tunity in the three 125-ton cargo planes called for in the Kaiser Hughes contract, with a type called partment said approximately 270,000 checks totaling $19,500,000 in family allowance payments are being mail ed to some 405,000 relatives and de pendents of soldiers October 1-10, including 135,363 first payments. No vember payments are expected to be twice as numerous as in October. Selective Service Director Her shey said he hoped mobilization for the Armed Services will reach its peak this year and will go downward with the start of 1943, but no one can make a prediction with any high de gree of certainty because of world military developments. "duramold" scheduled to constitute some 60 per cent of the weight of these giants. MEN'S and BOYS' SHOES ? By ?
