-THE AMERICAN SCENE- To troops here in Iceland, the plrrase "carrying coals to New Castle" may well .apply in this instance. Here is a scene of the nine in ch blanket of snow which covered Kansas City, Mo., recently and tnade driving in traffic a hazardous task. The storm, described as being Arctic in fury, spread over several midwestern states and brought death to ai least three persons. JAP NEWSMAN CALLS U.S. STRIP-TEASE GALS 'BARBARIC In a radio- report on the "American home front" to the Japanese people, Goro Nakano, one-time New York coi-respondent of the Tokyo newspaper Asahi, announc- ed to his readers: "... .In the war bond driv- es, Hollywood and Broad- way actresses give one kiss for each bond. Also in nude dances, each lime the actress strips off some of her cloth- es, spectators are made to buy bonds. Thus by barbar- ic methods they are bolster- ing the dimeslore patriotism of the ignorant Yankee masses." When she wrote her husband (a Lt. in 'Italy-) that she could not get a priority for a telephone, Mrs. Joe S. Hull of Tampa, Fla., received the answer: "Well,-you rate one with me." Several weeks later this "Swedish-made tele- phone arrived from Italy and was installed by the tele- phone company. "POSTWAR HOMES MAY BE ERECTED ffl A STOLE DAY Indications are that the little vine-covered cottage which many GIs are dream- ing about these days may be put together, in the post- war world, "by the numb- ers." News from the low-cost home front is that prefabri- cated houses can he erected in one day and ready for occupancy in a single week. After selection, of the site and the type of house which is desired, the pre-fab boys drop around and begin do- ing their setups. The exercise is said to be performed in the following manner: HUT - - Hie floor is laid in the morning. TWO — -sidewalls up by noon. THREE—roof, shingles and siding- completed by even- ing. FOUR — painting, plumbing, and electrician ¦squads take over. ¦Estimated cost for a four- room job is from S2,500 to $3,000 — with bigger and rtlbrfe elaborate houses avail- able at prices "slightly high- er." A provision in the GI Rill of Rights makes it poss- ible for soldiers to borrow up to $2,000 for this purpose. PRES,, WAR DEPT. DISAGREE ON POSTWAR TRAINING-CHAPLIN TRIAL WARMS OP-LOVE !N CAR'S FRONT SEAT SAID IMPOSSIBLE' f The War Dept. has placed itself on record as favor- " ing universal training of a strictly military nature—in contrast to President Roosevelt's suggestion of augment- ing the program with a certain degree of vocational and non-military training. The War Dept. justifies its stand in a circular which has been distributed to officers, de- claring: "...For the one and only reason that without such a program the continued security of our national life and institutions can no longer be assured." Front pages of U.S. newspapers are again carrying banner-heads on the Joan Rarry paternity suit against 55-year-old movie comedian Charlie Chaplin. Miss Rarry declared from the witness stand last week that Chaplin had fathered her baby, CarorAnn. Testifying for the first time in the nation's most torrid love trial in many years, Miss Rarry told of four instances of intimacy with Chap- lin and swore that she had had no such relations with anj' other man since she niet Chaplin in June, 1941. She related to the jury how she had attempted suicide, after Chaplin had refused to marry her, by taking iodine and sleeping tablets following her last intimacy with the silver- haired screen star. Chaplin's attorney showed her a letter in which she had written: "Why do we have to grow up into cheap little gold-digging bitches?" In Detroit, Mrs. Nina Housden, 33, confessed to police that she had strangled and dismembered the body of her husband, Charles,32, because "He had been having affairs with other Women." Arrested in Toledo, Ohio, she said, "I got him drunk, put a rope around his neck and then pulled until he was dead. It's first peace of mind I've had. If I were free I would go to Kentucky and kill a couple of women he had affairs with." She claimed that Housden, a Grayhound bus driver, had bragged to her that he could pick up any women he wanted and had once invited her to ride his bus and watch him. Housden was honorably discharged from the Army . A Supreme Court jury in White Plains, N.Y., solemnly cxahiined the front seat of a 1933 model sedan in an effort to decide whether or not it is roomy enough for the commission of "an act of infidelity." The jury decided it wasn't—and denied Dr. Nathan A. Calkin a divorce against his wife, Frances, whom he had charged with having had intimate relations with the owner of the'car, Anthony Moccio, 36-year-old Mount Vernon painter. Col, Elliott Roosevelt, son of the President, smiles hap- pily with his bride afctress Faye Emerson whom he mar- ried recently.
