Bold Plan For
LONDON —(UP) — The Brit-
ish government — upon the re-
turn to England of Prime Minis-
ter Churchill —has released the
boldest plan in western history
to banish want from a nation.
It has issude a white paper
outlining a comprehensive social
security program patterned on
the famous "Cradle-to-Grave"
blueprint of Sir William Bever-
idge. The cabinet shows itself
willing to go far — but not the
whole way — along the path laid
out by Sir William.
1 he |i!iin covers every man,
woman and child in the I'n-
ited Kingdom. It offers sub-
stantial security to the peo-
ple — but rejects, as un-
workable, Bevei'idgc's pro-
posal that no person should
at any time Itc allowed to
sink below the subsistence
Lord Woolton — Britain's re-
construction minister — discuss-
ed the white paper today at a
London press conference. The
meeting was attended by United
1 States Representative Arthur
Miller of Nebraska — who is
touring England at present with
several other members of con-
gress. The republican legislator
said the plan "goes much farther
than anything we have ever con-
sidered." He asked for copies to
The cost of the government's
scheme in the first year is es-
timated at over two and one-hall
billion dollars. The cost would
rise to nearly three billion dol-
lars in 10 years —and to a prob-
able maximum of three and one-
third billion dollars in 1975.
Each male worker would con-
tribute a weekly blanket insur-
ance premium of about 77 cents
under the proposal. Each work-
ing woman would give fiO cents.
Each employer would subscribe
S5 cents weekly for each male
employee —and 75 cents for wo-
For insured persons who
fail ill or become unem-
ployed, the government
would provide weekly pay-
ments of four dollars and 80
cents to single persons, and
S8.00 to married persons.
But where the Beveridge sche-
me suggests such payments bs
guaranteed indefinitely on the
grounds that nobody should suf-
fer poverty — the government
makes such payments of a limit-
ed duration.._ After a certain per-
iod" elapses, the insured worker
must turn to the ordinary ma-
chinery of public assistance.

While Allied air fleets are blasting German supply lines, thousands of tons of ammunition, food and

BESANCON, France (UP)
The Nazie soldier has a new
outlook on life. For years,
he lorded it over weaker
peoples. But now he feels
like a chased rabbit.
This reversal in outlook
is revealed in a letter cap-
tured recently by Yank sol-
diers in France. It was writ-
ten by a German who fled
northward as the Allies
drove up from the Riviera.
The German describes the
Nazi flight as a wild traf-
rlc jam. He said Germans
were travelling on foot, on
stolen bicycles, on horses
and all imaginable kinds of
vehicles, three abreast. He-
cause of the dive bombers,
they usually moved only at

planes approached, all vehi-
cles were abandoned and the
Germans ran as fast as their

APPRECIATE A WE Mi
Yes, men do appreciate a
well-groomed appearance, and
while we can't guarantee that
you'll make a hit with the
Navy, we do promise you the
best cleaning results possible.
There They Go, and
lOW that fall is here and folks are spending more
time indoors, get rid of that film of summer dust on lamp
bulbs and lighting fixtures so you'll get the full amount of
light from your lamps.
First, disconnect the lamps, wash the bulbs and glass
reflector bowls with a soapy cloth ... rinse ... then dry.
Brush lamp shades to remove dust. You'll be agreeably
surprised how much brighter your lamps are; how much
it improves the appearance of the room.
Vour eyes need all the help you can give them, especially
during these wartime days and flights when so much
depends on good eyesight. Don't handicap your eyes with
too little light.
