came down and said a shower
would soon be upon us, and so it
was. As nice a shower as one
would wish to see, but it appears
to have been a general rain from
the Black Hills to Omaha. Pub
lie opinion i3 greatly divided up
on the question of whether or
not Melbourne was responsible
for the shower. In fact that has
been the all-absorbing topic of
conversation since the gentleman
arrived in the city. The character
of Tuesday’s rain is a point that
argues strongly in Melbourne's
favor. It came with very little
thunder and lightning and no
wind, something that is very un
usual in this country during the
summer months. The clouds or
iginally came lazily drifting from
the northwest in broken masses,
resembling whitecaps on a ruf
fled sea and had no indication
whatever of rain. About 1 o’clock
Tuesday they settled back again
in the north and by 8 o’clock the
entire sky was of a leaden hue
and a gentle rain began falling
which continued falling until the
gauges measured a little over an
inch. We got the rain, but the
rainmaker got no money, as it

A WEEK OF THE WAR
The nine army corps areas were
reorganized and renamed “Ser
vice Commands.” The organ
ization will further decentralize
the operation of services of sup
ply activity and eliminate dupli
cating facilities, War Secretary
Stimson said 28,000 Jaundice cases
developed among army personnel
in the U. S. and abroad between
January 1 and July 4, apparently
due to the use of Yellow Fever
vaccine. Sixty-two deaths re
sulted. “There has been a
change in the form of Yellow
Fever vaccine now used which the
Surgeon General thinks will
eliminate the whole trouble,”
Mr. Stimson said. Director Hobby
of the Women’s Army Auxiliary
Corps said 20 companies of 150
women each will be 'trained by
the end of this year and 25,000
women will be trained by April,
Scrap Salvage Campaign
| President Roosevelt reported
the recent Scrap Rubber Collect
ion Drive added 454,000 tons to
the government’s stockpile—ex
clusive of rubber in small piles
still at service stations and junk
dealers. WPB Chairman Nel
son asked state and local govern
ments to lend their trucks and
workers to local salvage commit
tees to help transport scrap mater
ial collections before winter sets
in. To keep steel furnaces going
at full capacity, more than 750,
000 freight cars will be required
ta carry scrap iron and steel, most
of which must be moved by
trucks to rail points.
The WPB extended the Tin
Can Salvage Program to 104
cities in addition to 36 metropoli
tan areas previously announced,
because de-tinning plant capacity
requirements have been increas
ed from 250,660 to 400.000 ton*.
Tht Board said the government
will requisition fro
•rs all useless
those that cannot be repaired
on a practical basis—to maintain
the present peak movement of
automobile scrap to mills. Gn the
basis of a questionaire to 350
firms, the Board estimated 100
million pounds of essential chem
icals could be realized in the next
18 months if manufacturers of
war equipment began now to re
cover wasted spray paints.
Taxation And Profits
The House passed and sent to
the Senate the War Revenue Bill,
estimated to yield about $6,300
million, providing a 45 percent
normal and surtax income rate
on corporations and a 90 percent
excess profits tax. Treasurery
Secretary Morgenthau, however,
said a tax program of less than
$8,700 million of additional reven
ue would be inadequate. He rec
ommended removal of these
“Special Privileges;” tax ex
emption for state and municipal
securities, exemption from tax
ation of 27 Vis percent of income
from oil wells and mines, and
separate income tax returns by
The House Naval Affairs Com
mittee, after investigating 40,000
contracts, said “95 percent of the
war contractors are doing an
honest and effective job and re
ceiving only fair and reasonable
profits,” the average being 8 per
