16.-(IP)-Whirlaway made his de-

After two mediocre efforts, Warren
Wright's Kentucky flier spotted two
other rivals 18 pounds and 13 lengths

Travers stakes, and then high-balled I

oldest horse race in a common gallop.
He did it the hard way. Going into
today's race, there were all kinds of
prophets around the Spa forseeing
the end of the remarkable record
Whirlaway has piled up since he
charged to the had of the three year-'
olds in the Kentucky Derby. He had,
won the triple crown and, with to-
day's success, had boosted his earn-

barely beat War Relic here just ten
days back.
Attention wasn't on hand today.
He was back in the barn with an
ailing leg.
For a mile and an eighth in this
mile and a quarter ;rind, they had
the wacky whizz-bang beaten.
Fairymant and Lord Kitchener
took off with a rush, and at one time,
led Whirlaway by 13 lengths. Robert-
son just stayed back and let 'em go.
At the mile mark Whirly was still
nine lengths out of it. Rounding the
turn, however, Robbie gave him the

President Roosevelt Has Many
Problems AwaitingHis Return

The RAF ferry command in
Montreal announced that the Rt.
Hon. Arthur B. Purvis (above),
head of the British Supply Coun-
cil in North America and Canadian
industrialist, was killed in the
crash of a trans-Atlantic plase
taking off from a British port.
World At War;
Animals Make
News Anyhow
DETROIT, Aug. 16.-(P)-Except
for the animals-strangely misplaced
alligators, buffalos, and dogs-this
might have been just another week.
It was in Traverse City where the
animal trouble began. There the lo-
cal folk went on a buffalo hunt, but
after futile hours of searching they
adjcurned and sang a plaintive "Oh,
give me a home where the buffalo
roam." Their work had been in vain.
At the end of two days of hunting
for the rare beasts, employees of a
rodeo show were discouraged. Two of
their husky bison were still missing;
had last been seen in second growth
timber north of the fairgrounds.
Insurance agents in Detroit who
set up a picket line of dogs carrying
the legend "insurance men lead a
dog's life" were routed from the
streets. An irate police inspector told
his men, "Ask for their circus license.
Ask for their carnival license. See if
they have a permit for a parade. Get
those pooches out of there."
CCC Will Get
Army Training
Boys To Learn Marching,
Simple Formations
Training in "marching and simple
formations" according to Army in-
fantry drill regulations was ordered
today for the 200,000 men of the
Civilian Conservation Corps.
Disclosing the order, James J. Mc-
Entee, director, said the CCC boys
would not be given guns, and de-
clared, "This is not putting tle Corps
in the military establishment."
"The purpose of the instruction,"
he explained, "isi to strengthen and
broaden the basic health and physical
training programs provided in CCC
camps for all enrollees. The Corps
training will better fit the boys for
service in the Army if they are in-
ducted or volunteer, and likewise will
better equip them for jobs in defense
The whole idea, of the mass drill,
he added, "is to spruce these kids up."
The training order was issued1
through the War Department on Mc-
Entee's recommendation.
Courtmartial Ordered
For VFW Commander
LANSING, Mich., Aug. 16.-UP)-
National Commander Joseph G.
Menendez of the Veterans of For-
eign Wars said tonighthe had or-
dered a VFW court-martial for Earl
Southeard, Illinois commander, on
charges of violating his oath.
Menendez said Southard's own
post charged his activities as Sec-
retary of the Citizens Keep America
Out of War Committee constituted
a violation of the oath and petitioned
for the court-martial.

Double Service
Secretary Of State Kelly
Discloses Mechanismi
To Conserve Material
LANSING, Aug. 16.-(P)-Michi-
gan's 1942 automobile license plates
will be built to last two years, the
Department of State announced to-
day, because no steel will be avail-
able to manufacture new ones in
The full-year plates will have at
their bottoms the numerals "42" to
denote the year of license. In 1943
a steel strip an inch and a half wide
bearing - the numerals "43" will be
issued to be bolted over the space
occupied by the numerals of the
original plate.
Half-year license plates for 1942
will bear their expiration dates at
the bottom. In other respects they
will be identical to full-year plates.
Upon expiration, owners may pur-
chase metal strips bearing the "42"
numeral to cover the half-year desig-
The plates will be green with white
numerals and letters, and the strips
will match. -Engraved in the strips
will be serial numbers as a protec-
tion against license thieves.
Harry F. Kelly, Secretary of State,
said the experience of Connecticut,
which has employed a similar plan
for the past five years, indicated
there will be no material rise in the
number of stolen licenses.
Ultimately, Kelly said, Michigan
may adopt pastic materials for li-
cense plates, to conserve metals.
He predicted the new system would
be economical. He estimated the
state would save $225,000 by keeping
1942 plates in service two years.
Police officials, Kelly declared, re-
sisted suggestions that only one plate
be issued for each automobile,

WASHINGTON. Aug. 16.-P)--
President's Roosevelt's return to the
Capital tomorrow will find a variety
of problems great and small awaiting
his attention and disposition.
First of all, of course, will be the
ever acute question of accelerating the
delivery of defense supplies to Great
Britain, the armed forces of the
United States, andalso to Russia.
This is an ever-continuing problem
made now the more prominent by the
President's conference at sea with
Winston Churchill and the presence
in Washington of Lord Beaverbrook,
the British Minister of Supply.
For some time, criticisms of the de-
fense set-up, as cumbersome, less
efficient than need be, and hampered
by overlapping duties and powers,
have been numerous. And the critics
have not been confined to the group
which opposes the President's poli-
There have been reports, some of
them seemingly well-founded, that a
shake-up of the defense organization
is imminent; one report had it that
Mr. Roosevelt had appointed Judge
Samuel N. Rosenman, of New York,

to look into the situation and make
recommendations. However, a high
official said Judge Rosenman was
confining his studies to the overlap-
ping of functions of the Office of
Price Administration and Office of
Production Management.
Whether or not major changes are
made, however, the situation pre-
sented is one that calls for White
House decisions of a major nature.
In addition, Washington would not
be surprised if the President were
bringing as many problems back to
Washington as await him here, prob-
lems calling for decisions based on
the information exchanged at the
Churchill conference, or decisions on.

Nor should it try! But advertising can carry a good name to a rich and
