"Ed Gardner's series, sponsored

demonstrate in the Eddie Green
character how a Negro may be
used for comedy without resort to
racial stereotyping or sacrifice of
human dignity."
ONCE: According to Jules Verne’a
imaginative “Around the World In
80 Days," Phln-
eas Fogg circled
the globe by
such transport
facilities as ship,
train and ele­
phant back. Seventeen years later,
in 1889, Nellie Bly, Journalist, made
the trip in 72 days. Less than two
decades later, man made the first
powered plane flight with an
elapsed time of under a minute.
NOW: In the year 1945, an Army
Transport plane flew around the
world in approximately one-twelfth
the time it took the daring Miss Lily
to leave New York and get back
again in completing her globe tour.
8 0 0 N: Responsible aviation de­
signers are predicting for the fu­
ture, rocket ships which will fly at
the rate of 100,000 miles an hour.
This means, according to Oabrlel
Heatter, MBS commentator, it is
Indicated, with atmospheric and al­
titude conditions taken into con­
sideration, the world could be
circled in a half hour.

LOAD: History records that in the
dawn of civilization man subsisted
on roots and berries. He meant no
ill to animals, but many pursued
him. Man, at first, fled to safety;
then, resentful, look to casting
stones at them. Developing ac­
curacy, he began to make killa.
AIM: Somewhere along those trails
man tasted the flesh of the beasts
he had slain. Liking it, he became
a huntsman.
FIRE: Man’s first weapons were
hare hands, stones and heavy sticks.
Later he adopted the slingshot, the
javelin, lasso, bow and arrow, and
.finally, firearms. Until the advent
o f the gun, man’s auccesa at a
huntsman never devaated wild life.
He could not kill in greater num­
bers t h a n the animals and birds
could reproduce. So there were al­
ways plenty of game and birds.

Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, m ade
in his recent address before a joint
session of congress Ja n u a ry 15, as
regards enlisted men:
“ By April 30, 1946, all enlisted
men. except volunteers, with 45
points as of Septem ber 2, 1945, or
with 30 m onths' service as of April
20, 1946, will be separated from the
arm y or aboard ship returning
“ By June 30. 1946. all enlisted
men, except volunteers, with 40
points as of Septem ber 2, 1945, or
with 24 m onths' service as of June
30. 1940. will be sep arated from the
arm y or aboard ship returning
hom e."
G eneral "Ik e” further said that
w hether this ra te of discharge can
be m aintained depends directly
upon the ra te of replacem ents or
inflow into the arm y. So this com ­
m itm ent.is lim ited to July 1, 1946.
(). My son has been discharged
from the arm y. He entered serv ice
F ebruary, 1941. Is he entitled to the
pre-Pearl Harbor ribbon? He w as en­
titled to three bronze stars, bat only
one w as shown in his discharge. Is
