President Asks Americans to Honor I hese Flags
WASHINGTON Take care of
your electric ircn repair that
old toaster, do a thorough clean
ing Job on your waffle iron
they have to last for the duration.
The OPA Consumer Division
points out that no new electrical
equipment for home use will be
made after May 31, although re
placement parts will be available
for some time to come.
Most of the articles curtailed
except for electric Irons, wash
ing machines and electric range
units come under the heading
of "luxuries" In wartime. Sub
stitute methods, which do not re
quire the use of critical metals,
can do the work of many appli
ances. Electric roasters, dry
s'.iavers, mixers, juicers, whip
pers, electric percolators, elec
tric massagers and vibrators will
endure for years with proper
care and use.
Care for lion
Here are some tips on caring
for an electric iron: ,
Take hold of the plug when
detaching a cord from an outlet
or appliance, and you'll avoid
fraying the cord, exposing wires
or causing a loose connection.
Exposed wires are dangerous,
and loose connections can blow
a fuse cr prevent the iron from
heating. Remember that over
heating also is harmful to the
heating element and will shorten
the life of the iron. If the iron
' cord is detachable, connect and
disconnect it at the wall plug.
Do not disconnect the cord from
the iron while the current is on.
Let the Iron cool before stor
ing it. Roll the cord up loosely
and hang it over a large hook
or something round. Sharp bend
ing of the cord may break the
fine wires. Keeping the cord
dry and clean prevents dirt and
grease from damaging the outer
material. When using and stor
ing the iron, keep the sole plate
free of scratches and rough
- places. Remove starch from the
ole plate by wiping it with a
damp cloth. Use a very fine
abrasive if necessary, but never
immerse the iron in water. Oc
casionally rub the sole plate
lightly with paraffin or beeswax
and polish it with a dry, soft
Several suggestions can be
made on the general care of all
electrical appliances. Avoid
getting electrical appliances wet,
as wetting the heating element
may cause short circuits. . Usual
ly the appliance may be wiped
off with a damp rag to remove
- crumbs, excess oil, greases, fin
gerprints, etc.
Scrub waffle lion
To clean a waffle iron, scrub
the grids with a fine wire brush.
Then brush the grids with a
nonsalted oil. After this, heat
the iron about ten minutes. This
process reconditions the iron. Ex
cess oil may be soaked up by a
piece of bread placed between
the grids. It will not be neces
sary after this treatment to use
any fat on the grids when mak
ing waffles.
An electric coffeemaker may
.be cleaned occasionally by put
ting a tablespoon of soda in the
section that normally holds cof
fee grounds. After the soda has
percolated through, the coffee
maker will be washed clean.
If your appliance has an elec
tric motor like a mixer or a
fan be sure to oil it according
to the manufacturer's direction.
The use of extension cords
with your household appliances
cuts efficiency. If too many ap
pliances are attached to a plug
or outlet, you run the danger
of overloading the circuit and
blowing a fuse.

Public Invited
Nazi Newspapers Forced To
Tee the Line. Lochner Says
(Editor's Note: Home after five
months' internment in Germany,
Louis P. Lochner, chief of the
former Berlin bureau of the As
sociated Press and Wide World,
describes the German press in
this article.)
NEW YORK, June 10 (Wide
World) The nazi editor or re
porter writes as he is told to
write. If he doesn't, he) is, at
best, blotted out from the lists
of his profession. More likely
he is headed for a concentra
tion camp.
He is told in the minutest de
tail what he may write, what
he may not touch upon, what
emphasis he must place upon
a given item, how he is to com
ment upon it, when to harp on
a certain theme and when to
drop it.
Nothing is left to chance, and
very little to imagination.
Here's the set-up:
, Every morning the press offi
cers of the various ministries
filter into the Goebbels ministry
of propaganda and public en
lightenment such items of news
as the minister or their depart
ment chief approves, This does
not mean, necessarily, that the
item will be released for publi
cation. It may happen that the
experts in the propaganda min
istry consider the time inauspi
cious, in which case the minis
ter, in question, too, is barred
from releasing it.
Or it may be that even the
ministry, in relaying it to the
propaganda department, desired
merely that it be communicated
to the German newsmen for
their information but not for
At 10 o'clock every morning,
Goebbels' handymen foregather
to learn what they may say to
the press, what Information
should be withheld, what com
mentary should be offered,
which items must be carried as
privileged matter (and thus
made obligatory upon the papers
to carry), what evasive replies
should be told in response to
questions anticipated.
Everybody Instructed
Every official in the ministry
thus knows what he is to say
during the ensuing hours. So do
the corresponding officials in
the various ministries, who
usually attend this pow-wow or
at least are advised of its pro
ceedings. BIng Vip whom you
will after this conference, and

No sooner has this morning!
conference taken place, than
radio speakers of the ministry
get busy on an inside-office
broadcast to the 40-odd sub
offices of the propaganda min
istry scattered throughout the
reich. The press officials in
these branches thus receive
identical instructions.
When, therefore, the editor
of the Frankfurter Zeitung at
Frankfurt inquires concerning
the news and how to handle it,
the local propaganda represent
ative will give him exactly the
same information that, a few
minutes later, the Berlin cor
respondent for his paper will
For, at 11 a. m., the Berlin
Press, including representatives
of all important provincial pa
pers, is received at the propa
ganda ministry and told, "You
may write this; you must not
say that."
Men Hand-Pickad
The men selected for this con
ference are a picked lot. They
are under oath not to reveal
what is said during these con
ferences. But during my 20
years' stay in Germany I got
to know many German editors
personally. From them I know
how they often blush at what
is expected of them. Many feel
very unhappy and wish they
might get out of the meshes of
the ministry.
A few years ago we had the
case of one such correspondent
who felt so humilitated at what
was happening In these dally
conferences that he secretly
took notes (the correspondents
must not take notes while the
"interpretations" are handed
out to them), which he then
turned over to the representa
tive of a British dally. Unfor
tunately this colleague, . bent
upon scoring a scoop, published
textual ly a number of instruc-

Gestapo Called In
The propaganda ministry im
mediately invited two Gestapo
officials to sit unobtrusively In
the conference and to observe
who was taking copious notes.
The man was discovered, then
shadowed for several days and
finally arrested as he was about
to slip a manuscript to a repre
sentative of the British news
man In billiard hall. He was
sent up for life. Since that time
there have been few transgres
sions. Almost until the very end of
my Berlin activity, I was able
nevertheless to obtain access to
the daily instructions.
On many items of news Adolf
Hitler himself reserves the
right to determine what com
mentary must be given.
After the German editors had
taken their Instructions, the for
eign press was received daily,
as most of us could not be regi
mented (our number, however,
became smaller and smaller as
Germany occupied one country
after another and as representa
tives of the few remaining neu
tral countries became more and
more afraid), naturally the tone
toward us was a cajoling rather
than a mandatory one.
Even then on several occa
sions the official would forget
whom he had before him and
read from his manuscript, "The
press will write as follows."
Blushingly, he would quickly
change over to "Gentlemen of
the foreign press, the German
viewpoint on this-or-that situa
tion is ."
Pre-Nasis Press
Before the advent of nazism,
the German press was one of
the freest in the world. It is
now one of the most minutely
regimented. This is true espe
cially since the outbreak of the
war; it was true, however, long
before September, 1939. It has
made for uniformity and same
ness that is nothing short of

the President's proclamation
Warning that the people of
Washington state would con
demn and take over private
power companies piecemeal if
congress failed to enact legisla
tion to create the Columbia
power administration in Wash
ington and Oregon was given
today by Senator Bono (D
Wash.) at a hearing before a
Joint senate-house committoe.
"If congress should not pass
this bill, after It had encouraged
public power," Bone said, "then
the people of my state will rise
up and condemn those plants.
This fight is going on whether
this bill passes or not."
The bill (S2430-HROD0O) In
troduced by Bone and Represen
tative Smith (D-Wash.) would
authorize the creation of the
administration with authority to
purchase or condemn private
power system; in the two states
and resell them to municipalities
and public utility districts. It
would then supply them power
from Bonneville and Grand
Coulee on the Columbia river.
It previously had been stated
that 30 public utility districts
In Washington had authority to
condemn soctlons of private
power systems in their counties,
the cost of which would be
greatly Increased because the
PUD's would have to pay sev
erance damages to the private
power companies.
