WITHOUT? any pulling, hauling
or political pressure Klamath Falls
a few miles from the Japanese re
location center at Tule lake, has
been recommended as the site for
a 3,000-bed navy hospital. It will
be one of the largest such institu
tions in the country. This hospital
is intended for the exclusive use of
patients who are suffering from
malarial diseases contracted in the
swampy, but picturesque, jungle
islands of the South Pacific. The
size of the hospital gives some idea
of the prevalence of malaria in that
therter of war, and the Klamath
Falls hospital is intended for navy
personnel alone not the army, al
though the army also is suffering
severely from the disease.
After making a survey of the
midwest and northwest an exam
ining board concluded that at Kla
math Falls the disease could be
more effectively treated than else
where because of the climatic con
ditions and the elevation. The ele
vation of Klamath Falls is about
4,500 feet above sea level.
In passing, it may be observed
that when Klamath Falls asked for
the establishment of an air base the
powers that be rejected the loca
tion because, they said, fighter
planes might run into wild geese
or pelicans, that vicinity being a
refuge for wild water fowl, and
such a collision would be disastr
ous to the pilot and plane, not to
From all advance indications a good
time will be had by all. It begins
to look like the senate will not take
the house bill as is. It is predicted
the togamen will make several
amendments to the measure, ton
ing down some of the more drastic
provisions incorporated in the
house bill. Compromise, in some
form, seems to be in the air.
Considerable heat is being turn
ed on many senators by scores of
pro-subsidy groups. Letters and
telegrams are flooding the desks of
the lawmakers, urging a continu
ance of subsidies in some form to
hold down food prices. There isn't
anything that has more effect on
the boys than letters and tele
grams from the home folks. When
they hear the voice of their con
stituents they sit up and take no

OREGON'S Senator Charles L.
McNary, minority leader and one

THERE are altogether too many
peace rumors going the rounds to
suit the army and navy big-wigs.
Every week silly rumors crop up
which have it that peace is just
around the corner, or that Germany
will ask for an armistice, that Ru
mania will withdraw from the war,
and so on into the night. Such ru
mors seem to gam momentum as"
the war goes on, and they come
thicker and faster after each allied
victory. All of which adds up to
rale, and is giving the war depart
pure bunk, bad for civilian mo
ment one grand headache. Such
rumors also have a very bad ef fect
on the millions of men in the
armed forces who have been under
gong months of vigorous training
in many camps scattered through
out the nation.
This matter has become a sub
ject of serious cohcarn to the army
and navy high command, who art
now trying to devise ways and
metms to stop this dangerous prop
aganda. Officials emphasize that
the public will be truthfully in
formed of arty peace overtures and
will always be kept abreast as to
the progress of the war. They are
also very emphatic that any cre
dence given to such umors will
only prolong the war and help to
break down war production sched
ules and morale of our home front.
We are winning the war but the
struggle ahead will take many
months of hard and bitter fighting.
The successful ending is still along
ways off. Moral: Don't spread peace
