Brownsville Texas. Monday a june 5, 1944 by Jack Rutledge Quot the old saying that tune is Money was amply proven by the saturday a invasion error it was further emphasized that Quot minutes county in the newspaper game particularly in the reporting end of it. To you the false Flash on the invasion May be a minor thing already forgotten but it will live Long in the annals of the fourth estate. The time is Money Angle is explained by the fact that during the to minutes Between the erroneous Flash and the kill thousands of newspapers began preparing extras on a Busy saturday afternoon. Some which do not publish on that Day had called in their staffs and had to pay them the actual Cost involved was terrific taken As a whole. The Quot minutes county was proven by the fact that in this Brief two minutes the word spread through the new world from radios from loudspeakers in baseball Parks from Heaters from political gatherings and from newspapers. A Mem the Washington column when government official admits its hard to keep up with changes its news will peaches grow in the Valley just ask Jim Green out in South Osl. He planted some Trees in february and they re already producing fruit that sounds unbelievable but we have a Ripe. Juicy peach on our desk now to prove it.

K Smith for president Headquarters a overheard in the Blue newsroom Quot what is wrong with sending a Cruiser to a Friend who has helped keep the enemy from sending a Fleet to us a the inconsistencies and unfairness of the pension plan should be corrected. Its a complicated setup and making it work is a difficult Job. But there Are too Many incidences of unfairness even for bureaucracy to condone. For example we know of numerous persons Here who have incomes or Nice backlogs of Cash but who get checks regularly from the government. Then there Are cases like this an elderly Man living in Brownsville is ill and has a wife and children. He depends entirely upon his pension Check to make ends meet. But recently he decided to augment this meager income and rented him a Small plot of land and planted tomatoes. He made go and promptly lost his pension checks officials say they a might be Able to reinstate him when he has used up his $8a_at the rate of about $17 a month Happy ending at Elsa Max Wells apartment the other night the guest of Honor was rep.

A the Warp and Woof of my life is in this room. In fact Dorothy is the Woof Woof a Eli pct on Neutral nations should be great and it should be Good for Home a Molotov broke All rules but is hero More men today Are trusting other people for their future happiness than at any time in a Hundred years. A Man can not live alone in this world and he will not be alone in the Medicine and miners new York s Mavor Laguardia has presented to the people of his City a detailed health insurance plan which is hound to Start the socialized Medicine debate going hotter than Ever. Such a plan if approved would probably provide the blueprint for any National development. But it would not be As revolutionary As Many people think for socialized or if you prefer industrialized Medicine has been operating in the Coal mining regions for some 40 years. This system operates somewhat in the chinese manner which is to pay the doctor to keep you Well. Single miners pay from to cents to $1.25 a month according to locality and families from $1.25 to $2 for a physician s services. These include House and office Calls and the Standard medicines. Quot Molotov after Warner once said he was Quot half russian half crawling boasting and arrogant Molotov was hated and despised by most of his outfit before it into artion. He showed up for induction in a came hair coat and a White silk Muffler. In combat Molotov broke even More red tape than in training. Ile usually scouted As a Lone Wolf carrying two pistols and a carbine As Well As the Field glasses which he kept As a trophy of his first Battle. He was absolutely fearless refused to Wear a helmet and threw away at least a dozen which were issued to him at various times. Quot when i git Etc he said Quot a helmet wont make any at Send Molotov took an interpreter and boldly strode up to the opposing italian Garrison. He glibly told them they were surrounded by an overwhelming american froce. They were so convinced by his gab that they gave up after feeble resistance. Audacious feat he helped overcome an enemy Strong Point at Manassy by an audacious feat going 800 Yards Forward an with his blonde hair shining like a Beacon he leaped upon a Rock and shouted a finish in Guerre Quot Quot finish la then he dived Between two Boul cers As All the enemy machine gunners in the Nighbor Hood opened up on this tempting Quot crazy he noted positions of the machine guns relayed the information Back and american artillerymen promptly blew them up. Molotov fell with a group of French native Gums storming a hidden machine Post in the Hill country past Senjen Ane. They found him lying face Down with the Sun glittering on his Blond head. Bursts of bullets had All but Cut him in two at the Waist. His prize Field glasses had been looted by the germans. Two charges were pending against him at his death but they wiped these off his record and gave him a Silver Star posthumously. That was always beating the rap. The bids of the army air base in the Ascencion islands Are both an Aid and a menace to flyers. If it were not for the sight of these Birds in flight Many an airman would miss the tiny islands. Yet these same Birds prove to be quite an obstacle when they build their nests on the runways. Our material Power today is not exceeded or even matched by any other nation if we now fail to take cur proper place in the postwar world it will be because we have not the Wisdom to know what we want or the internal Unity necessary to achieve it. A War mobilization director James f. Byrnes. The 12th Model of the p-38 lightning fighter embodies several major improvements including an increase of 30 per cent in horsepower a gain in rate of climb which at 3.000 feet amounts to Ico per cent and an increase in Range of 30 per cent. A addition to this there Are Hospital and burial funds. All these Are apart from the care and treatment of injuries sustained at work for which miners receive compensation. These medical services Are operated by the mine owners. Some companies also provide visiting nurses whose work includes classes in such things As pre and Post Natal care. Maintenance of medical service is written in most contracts Between operators and the United mine workers. Of course the situation in mining communities is different from that in new York where an intricate and established system of private medical practice and hospitals exists. But it would seem that in any discussion of socialized Medicine for new York or the entire country More attention might be Given to this going concern in the mining country.
