German Girls Help Clear
Away Rubble in Poland
GORZOW, Poland (AP)
Young German girls have to work
for their daily bread in this former
German town of Landsberg. Poles
have crews of them at work in the
heart of the town, clearing away
the debris of war-destroyed build
ings. Most of the girls appear to
be between 16 and 18 years of age.
Poles pay them 4 12 cents per
day in addition to their food and
lodging. About 1,500 Germans re
main in Gorzow. Seven hundred
of these are women. All are await
ing repatriation to Germany and
probably will be sent to the Rur
sian zone of occupation.

Explains New GI
The new law increasing subsis
tence allowances for veterans tak
ing institutional on-farm training
under the G.I. Bill will benefit only
veterans training on their own
farms in most cases, J. D. DeRa
mus, manager of the Veterans Ad
ministration's Winston-Salem Re
gional office, declared today.
A trainee must take a minimutn
of 300 hours of related instruction
a year to qualify for the raise, Mr
DeRamus explained. This is re
quired of veterans training on
their own farms but the minimum
for employee-trainees is 250 fionrs.
he asserted. Thus employee train
ees do not qualify for the increase
unless they are taking at lca.t 50
hours a year more instruction than
On-farm trainees without depen
dents will be raised from $65 to
$67.50 a month if they are eligible
for the increase provided by Public
Law 512. These with one depen
dent will be boosted from $!)() to
$93.75, while those with more than
one dependent will be hiked to
Prior to April 1, subsistence al
lowances were fixed at $65 a
month for veterans without depen
dents regardless of whether they
were attending school or training
on the job. For those with depen
dents, the rate was $90. Effective
April 1, allowances were boosted
as follows for those attending
school full time: veterans without
dependents. $75; with one depen
dent, $105; with two or more de
pendents, $120. Rates remained
the same for on-the-job trainees.
The higher rate applies where a
trainee is taking as much as 300
hours of related instruction a year,
but he is entitled to onlv one
fourth of his subsistence allowance
at these figures since his instruc
tion consumes only a quarter of his
time. He is paid at the on the job
rate for the other three-quarters
of his time when he is actually
working. This explains why he
gets only a quarter as much in
crease as a veteran attending
school full time.
No subsistence is granted a vet
eran going to school less than a
fourth of the regular time. For
that reason, ex-servicemen taking
less than 300 hours of related in
struction receive no pait of their
substistence allowance at the in
creased rate. Their allowanc- re
mains the same as if they were

A GOOD COOK
N. C. Milk Demand
for milk in North Carolina during
1947 "made it necessary to im
port 63,880,651 pounds, much of
which could have been produced
on Tar Heel farms if everyone
fully appreciated the physical and
economic value of milk," Ralph
II. Scott, "June Dairy Month"
State Chairman of Burlington and
Raleigh, declared today.
"Figures from the State Agri
culture Department," Scott said,
"reveal that North Carolina cows
produced 1,592.000,000 pounds of
milk lost year. At a quick glance
that looks like a lot of milk, but.
to satisfy the demand throughout
the state, we still had to import
from other stales almost 64 mil
lion pounds of milk."
"June is Dairy Month" is a slo
Kan that reminds us all of the
need for production and consump
tion of more milk, Scott said.
There is no better body builder
than milk -and milk products-

and the financial benefit derived
by a state well-populated by dairy
farms contributes much to the wel
fare of all the people, he added.
"This year," Scott said, "North
Carolina milk interests, civic or
ganizations and educational lead
ers arc going "all-out" to promote
greater production and consump
tion of milk. Producers and pro
cessors alike, in cooperation with
the Dairy Council, arc working
hand-in-hand to make sure every
resident of the state is made aware
of the importance of increased use
of milk, ice cream, butter an'd
cheese and that farmers arc im
pressed with the need for increas
ing milk production."
Scott pointed out that the "June
is Dairy Month" campaign will be
given an official send-off tomorrow
morninR with a 'dairy breakfast'
at Stale College in Raleigh for
about 100 leaders of the milk in
