The hopeless, heartbreaking task of defending the Philippines after the islands had been cut off from aU aid fell to his lot in the early months of World War II. He fought on until his food and ammunition were exhausted and there was no alternative left but surrender to the Japanese. I Then for three years, three months and eighteen days he was 'I in prison camps, where he was 1 beaten and subjected to indignities I by an arrogant enemy. The Japan- ese threatened to kill him immedi- ately after the surrender because all troops under his command had not given up at the designated time. Looked Nickname Gaunt and stooped, "Skinny" Wainwright looked his nickname when he returned from captivity. Declaring that "peace is a mili- tant state which is not secured by wishful Gen. Wain- wright urged that the United States aever again let down its guard. He told his fellow citizens that "if we are to be sure of our liberty we must preserve it through full cooperation with other peace-lov- ing nations, we must be ready to fight for it, and until we are safe from treachery we must keep our defense impregnable."

The damage from the summer's unseasonable weather, with no heavy rains in many areas, was widespread. The death toll from causes attri- buted to the current heat wave mounted to at least 50. Thousands have been treated for heat prostra- tion. Damage to crops in several states appeared soaring into the millions of dollars. In Missouri alone, officials estimated the farm .income loss from drought would total 150 million dollars. In Iowa, one of the leading corn states, a Farm Bureau official said the hot weather of the last week alone had cut the state's prospec- tive corn yield by at least 15 per damage also re- Illinois, South Dakota, rifice a serious American defense j Nebraskai Kansas, Indiana and effort in favor of a balanced bud- 1 hio Ohio. get For the time being, more- over this faction appears to have over, ims.

"I recognize that your needs are pressing.

Message Made Public Eisenhower's message, made public at his vacation headquar- ters here, mentioned no specific amount of financial assistance this country might provide. Zahedi mentioned no figure, either, but did say the aid Iran now is receiv- ing from the United States is in- adequate to tide his nation over its financial crisis. The Premier added: "The treasury is empty; foreign exchange resources are exhaust- ed; the national economy is de- teriorated; Iran needs immediate financial aid to enable it to emerge from a state of economic and fi- Lake City Man Charged With Shooting Swimmer Shotgun Discharged During Row at Hansen Harbor LAKE CITY, Minn.
