Beaten Battle of Ballots Leader
Trough with Politics Forever

By The Associated Press
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Aug. 8-
Pat Mansfield, former sheriff of Mc-
Minn countyband a leader of forces
which were beaten in a battle of bal-
lots and bullets last Thursday, said
today "I'm through with politics for
good-it'll sure mess you up some-
The stocky ex-sheriff disclosed that
he was suffering from slight buck-
shot wound in the right leg-re-
ceived in a rousing, six-hour pitched
battle between his forces and partis-
Scientists Seek
Santary Means
Of Dishwashing
Not all scientists are engaged in
atomic research-some of them are
concerned with dishwashing.
Essential factors of sanitary dish-
washing, both by machine and hand
methods, for public and private eat-
ing places are being sought by the
National Sanitation Fouidation here.
Research is concerned with de-
termining time and temperature
necessary to the elimination of all
public health hazards from eating
utensils. The mechanics of washing
and rinsing under actual working
conditions as well as possibilities of
"cold sterilization" of utensils are
being studied.
The foundation is non-profit and
hopes the results of its studies
may help unify dishwashing codes
throughout the country, in accord-
ance with public health regulations.
Ten dishwashing machines are be-
ing tested by the foundation under
the direction of Dr. W. L. Mallman.
Dr. Thomas Francis, Jr., head of the
epidemiology department is directing
research on "cold sterilization."
"The purpose of the foundation is
as broad as the whole field of sani-
tation," Dr. Henry F. Vaughan, dean
of the public health school and presi-
dent of the foundation, declared. He
pointed out that the organization's
objective was to improve environ-
mental health in the United States.
Boys' School
Plans Newv Site
LANSING, Aug. 8-(P)-The State
Youth Guidance Company today
.heard plans to acquire a new site for
the boys' vocational school near Wil-
liamston at a cost of more than
The Rev. Paul Czemanske, chair-
man of the State Juvenile Institute
Commission, predicted the commis-
sion would accept the site at its Sep-
tember 6 meeting. The site was rec-
ommended by a legislative committee
headed by Rep. Robert M. Mont-
gomery, Lansing Republican.
czemanske said the selection of a
new site for the school was hampered
by the statutory necessity of acquir-
ing at least a section of land and the
need for placing it close to state hos-
pital and educational agencies.
Members of the Youth Guidance
Commission questioned whether the
legislative committee's plans did not
over-emphasize agricultural training.

ans of a victorious ex-GI slate of
candidates. The wound wasn't seri-
ous, he said.
Mansfield gave a telephone inter-.
view from 'the Chatsworth, Georgia
home of relatives where he has been
staying since he abdicated as sheriff
early last Friday. He disclosed that
he revisited Athens, McMinn county
seat, today-for the first time since
the gunfire-to resign his last offi-
cial connection with the strife-torn
county-membership on the election
"I'm going back to railroading,"
he announced. "I'm a locomotive
engineer, you know, and I expect to
go back to my old job of railroading
between Etowah and Atlanta on the
Louisville and Nashville Railroad."
Mansfield was a high lieutenant in
the Paul Cantrell McMinn county
administration which lost the elec-
tion and the gun battle waged around
the county jail for possession of con-
tested ballot boxes.
He and a score or more of deputized
officers barricaded themselves in the
jail, only to be routed with dynamite
blasts after the GI faction had be-
sieged them with shotguns, pistols,
rifles and at least one machinegun.
As an aftermath, the county offi-
cers resigned and were replaced with
ex-GI winners in the election.
Father Divine,
Bride Appear
For ietures
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 8 - 4P) -
FIather Divine, five-foot, billiard-bald
Negro Evangelist and self-proclaim-
ed "God," posed today for the first
pictures with his beautiful 21-year-
old white bride and predicted their
marriage will carry "democracy,
Americanism and Christianity to the
new birth of freedom predicted by
Abraham Lincoln."
His bride-she was Edna Rose
Ritchings of Montreal, Canada, be-
fore she adopted her cult name of
"Beautiful Angel"-sat demure and
silent through the brief press con-
Then the smiling blonde girl, who
towers six inches above "God," quiet-
ly took her place at the head of a
huge banquet table in the four-story
downtown building which is Father
Divine's headquarters, one of many
"heavens" which his sect owns and
operates throughout the North.
,Lumberman's Wage
Increase Refused
WASHINGTON, Aug. 8-(')-The
government today refused to approve
a second round of postwar wage in-
creases for the west coast lumber
industry, the first such decision yet
made under the wage-price policy.
Reconversion Director John R.
Steelman held that a pattern of in-
creases, 15 cents an hour above
those in effect on V-J Day, had been
established for the industry. He de-
clined to approve an additional 3/2
cents hourly increase.
Steelman's ruling reversed a decis-
ion of the National Wage Stabiliza-
tion Board whih had approved the
3/2 cent increase on top of the earli-
er-approved 15 cent pay boost.

Admiral Okada apparently is not
too well informed. That is the only
interpretation possible unless you as-
sume that he means (a) that the
Russians deliberately kept mum about
peace feelers in February, 1945, in'
order to take advantage of the secret
clauses of the Yalta Agreement, or
(b) that they told the Allies about
the peace feelers and that the Allies
did nothing about them. Either as-
sumption is pretty hot if justified,

Forester Relates Experiences
With'local Women, Mosquitoes

The cream of Iron River's deb crop
threw a party for us last weekend,
which meant that all chin stubble
under one inch was mown and clean
plaid shirts donned.
It was a great social success. The
boys are planning to return the in-
vitation and have the town girls out
at the lake for a traditional forester
The beef market looks pretty
slim, so the fellows are eying with
speculation the porcupines which
invade the camp each night. This
worries the girls whose stomachs
are a little More delicate than
ours. Word must have gotten
around that a hungry forester will
eat anything, for a few of the less
trusting girls are taking inventory
of all local dogs and cats.
We're still holding our own with
the mosquitoes here .in the U.P. Ac-
cording to entomological predictions
the critters should,,have ,disappeared
three weeks ago, but they hang on
like hungry relatives.
It's not the number of the blam-
ed things; it's the size that hurts.
We figure there must be only
twenty to the acre .. . mainly be-
cause there just isn't food for more.

just weak from the loss of blood.

Campus Highlights

For WayneU.
LANSING, Aug. 8-(P)-A legisla-

tentatively on a plan for state oper-
ation of Wayne University as part
of the state's educational system.

its decisions were not final and that
it would not decide whether to recom-
mend state acquisition of the muni-
cipal university in Detroit until its
October meeting. It will confer next
month with the Detroit Board of

phrases to the tune of a sharp tongue,
he could out-box Paul Bunyan him-
self. One of the boys remarked that
it isn't that Si cusses too much as it'
is that he contaminates perfectly
good swearing with a few words of
the King's English.
Between stories Si instructs the
Michigan foresters in the intrica-
cies of filing a saw, but his opinion
of "perfessors" is low. He has more
respect for a rusted file than a col-
lege degree, but we learned a lot
from him.
Si sums upthe whole matter in his
favorite philosophy: "Ignorance ain't
so much whut ye don't know, as 'tis
whut ye know that ain't so."
