SAN FRANCISCO, April 30-Over stern Russian objections, the United

Eloquently but in vain, Russian foreign commissar Molotov had pleaded

BATTLE CREEK, Mich., April 28-
Gadgets improvised by resourceful
:nn-commissioned officers in the
reconditioning service at Percy Jones
Hospital are playing a big part in
putting many a beribboned wounded
soldier back on his feet.
The story about the "men who
serve the men who served" starts
back when the hospital was new and
little manufactured equipment was
available to use in strengthening
specific muscles for wounded soldiers.
At that time the noncoms figured out
much of their own equipment, and
now that there are "ready made"
gadgets for general use, they continue
to make up new ones for specific
These improvisions, or gadgets as
the soldiers dub them., range from
a complicated series of bed pulleys
to an aluminum grip for golf
sticks with, which an arm amputee
can play golf.
Lt. Louis Grower, former physical
education instructor at a Patterson,
N. J., high school, is pretty proud of
the gadgets worked out by his men,
most of whom were college or high
school instructors themselves before
the war.
The golf grip is Sgt. Ward B.
Carr's baby. Already patented the
grip will be made of aluminum for
coolness and his finger grooves so
placed that the grip will be strong
enough for one armed golf. For sol-
diers wanting to use artificial hands,
Carr, who formerly was golf pro at
the Glastonbury Country Club near
New Haven, has figured out an ex-
tended handle which fits into the
prosthesis at the proper angle.
Carr also has worked out a 10-
foot square collapsible golf range
used at the hospital all winter, and
three machines for special remedial
muscle work. The last is an off
center two-arm crank affair that
operates against resistance like a
bicycle pedal. On the floor level,

to work it, it builds up leg and arm
muscles-at arm height the crank
strengthens chest and arm muscles,
and above the head the machine
works on abdominal and back
Early in the program another ser-
geant figured out a chest expander
made out of old innertubes. Sgt.'
Dwight Keller made dumbbells, which
patients could use in bed, out of No.
2 tin cans filled with cement.
Then there are the bed pulleys
worked out by Sgt. Everett Ocher-
man, former school principal at
Liberty, N. Y. He had a ward of
boys .who were paralyzed from the
waist down. Their legs were being
massaged constantly so the mus-
cles wouldn't atrophy, but Och-
erman thought perhaps they could
help themselves.
He worked out a series of overhead
pulleys-ropes at one end are at-
tached to soft leather loops around
the patients' paralyzed knees and
ankles. Lying in bed the patient
can then exercise his own legs by
working on the other end of the
ropes much the way one moves pup-
pets around.

Improvisions of Officers Help
Recondition Wounded Soldiers





Associated Press Correspondent
MANY, April 27.- Capturing Ger-
mans has become so commonplace in
these parts that people have prac-
tically quit talking about it, except
for unusual cases.
. But this was not true a few days
ago. It was then that Capt. Francis
C. Schommer, Seboygan, Wis., put
his improvised "party line surrender
system" into operation.
Capt. Schommer belongs to the
Third Battalion of the 329th Infan-
try Regiment, which then was mak-
ing its rush from th Rhine to the
Elbe River. In addition to usual
methods of capturing prisoners-at
gun's point, for instance-the bat-
talion rigged up a sound truck which
warned enemy soldiers they had bet-
ter call it quits, oi else.
Sound Truck Brealks Down
But one day the sound truck broke
down, and the thunderbolt dough-
boys had no immediate means of
inducing the Germans to surrender
excepting the old shoot-it-out meth-
od, at which they do all right, too.
But theynaturally preferred a less
drastic plan.
"As soon as we captured a town I
hotfooted it over to the local burgo-
meister," he explained. "My German
isn't the best in the world, but it was
good enough to make him understand
I wanted him to call the burgomeister

in the next town just ahead of our
"As soon as he got the next town's
burgomeister on the phone, he would
ask him two questions: 'Are there
any troops in your town?' and 'Do
they want to surrender?'
Three-Way Conversation Ensues
If the answers to both questions
were "Yes," then a three-way conver-
sation ensued. Schommer told his
burgomeister to tell the other town's
burgomeister that white flags were
to be flown from every house-as
ceuspicuously as possjble.
In addition, all soldiers within the
city were to lay down their arms and
go to an open field at the outskirts
of the town, and wait till they could,
be picked up.
"I didn't fail to impress the burgo-
rneister making the call with a clear
idea of what would happen if we got
double-crossed," the captain said.
Syem Works
Sh; omm er's system worked in town
af er town, for ama'zingly enough the
telephone lines fiemained compara-
tively intact, at least in the area
through which the battalion made
its drive.
"However, in Mullingen we ran
into trouble," Schommer said. "After
the tclephone conversation and after
the the white flags had been raised
in the town a Gernian mortar crew
for'ed the civilians to remove the
flags and help the troops to defend
the town. We were forced to pound
the place with artillery."
