PAGE TWO BIG THREE IN BERLIN It is ironical that the Big Three are meeting near Berlin, the city that was to have been Adolph Hitler's capital of the world. The question has been asked: Why was Berlin chosen for this conference ? At least two reasons seem obvious. First, it wilt serve to further impress on the Germans that they are a beaten nation. Second, it w'as probably as far as Stalin would go from Russian soil. We imagine that our own Secret Service and the Russian and British counterparts are not happy about the meeting place. To them it will be an "invasion" of enemy territory. It is not likely, however that the German people will see much of the disting- uished visitors. Precautions for the safety of the three leaders probably will be greater than ever before used. Although this is President Truman's first meeting with Churchill and Stalin, he should not be at any marked dis- advantage. He has thoroughly .famil- iarized himself with the details of previous conferences and he will have the able assistance of Secretary of State Byrnes anu other aides who were at Yalta. Both Churchill and Stalin are also aware that Mr. Truman has won the overwhelming confidence of the American people and that he has their solid backing. The fact that Senate approval of the United Nations Charter is virtually "in the bag" will further strengthen his hand. It should allay any doubts of the other members of the Big Three as to our willingness to be ac- tive in world aLffairs from now on. Many vital and vexing problems confront the Berlin conference. But with relations between Russia, Britain and America definitely on the upgrade the meeting should strengthen the founaation for a lasting peace --ON TO VICTORY~ WELL DONE ! The United Nations Conference in San Francisco was successful not only politically and diplomatically but from every other standpoint as far as Cali- fornia was concerned. While San Francisco was the host city, almost the entire state helped in one way or another to make the visit of delegates and news correspondents interesting to them and to show them what makes California the greatest state in the Union. Tour of agricultural areas, shipyards and industrial plants were arranged. Fashion parades were held. Fox West Coast Theatres gave one of its houses for the exclusive use of CS~nferenee visitors and the movie industry provid- ed mtmerous previews for their enter- tainme~t. Some 2,tX}0 newsmen were given a five-hour boat ride arotmd San Dan- cisco Bay by the Standard Oil Con!- pany. Bank of America did a splendid public relations job by setting up fac- ilities providing complete banking ser-, vice right in the Veterans' Building where the Conference was held, anti in issuing special courtesy cards to ac- credited newsmen so that their checks could be cashed innnediately. This bank also supplied typewriters with Russian, Greek and Chinese keys, Ioa> ed many of their linguists, and made office space available for delegates in its downtown buildings. t-Iandsome books on San Francisco legends, history and geography were put out by such firms as City of Paris, and Fireman's Fund Insurance (om- pany. Packages of choice California foods and wines were placed in the hotel rooms of correspondents. There can be no doubt that dele- gates and newsmen went away with a very favorable impression not only of San Francisco but of all California, To all who had a hand in "selling-" the Cml*den State and its City by the Golden Gate to the visitors, we say, "Well done !"

COMMITTEE FOR ECONOMIC ;DEVELOPMENT C.N.P.A. Service A free business advisory service for veterans, returning to Southern Cali- fornia cities, was announced today by Morris B. Pendleton, regional chair- man of the Committee for bkonomic Development. Veterans planning to go into busi- nesses of their own wilt be of, feted expert counsel in starting an enter- przse. Continuing assistance will be given until the veteran is firmly estab- lished. This program has been devel- oped by credit managers through their organization, the Los Angeles Credit Managers' Association, representmg 1,050 individual industries of more than 150 types. Each industry represented in the Association will assign experts to ot~r counsel on the particular bus- iness in.which the veteran is interest- ed. The }erviee will be developed with other credit associations and offered without cost throughout the Southern California area. Advice will be along the lines of in- vestment in equipment, in merchandise, proper mark up, location, and the very important necessity of keeping proper and adequate records. The wide scope of the Credit Managers' Association Membershop, in virtually every line of industry, assures the veteran of ex- perienced advice in whatever line of business he enters. Contact with the veteran will be maintained until the business is well established. The As- sociation Committee heading this ac- tivity is chairmaned by H. E. McMan- igle, local business executive, "A right start in business is half the battle", said McManigle, "and since small businesses will re-employ 4.~ of the nation's workers, their success is essential to our economy". This pro- gram cooperates with the Committee for P;conomic Development's efforts to develop a high level of productive jobs maintained on a sound basis. Veterans can obtain details through the offices of the Los Angeles Credit Managers' Association or the Committee for Economic Development. located in the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce. --RUy WAR BONDS---- RECONVERSION DAY HAS COME Without fanfare, without creating more than a ripple on the Nation's economic waters, the long-awaited Re- conversion Day arrived on July 1. To the average man R-Day means new cars, and right now Detroit's automobile assembly lines are turn- ing them out although the number as yet is very small. The production of nearly one quarter of a million cars has been authorized for the last half of this year and approximately 450,000 for the first quarter of 1940. These figures may sound impressive, but when we rbcal/ that in prewar times car production ran as high as four million a year we realize that the present production rate is just a light warnlul). The American people have come to depend upon automotive transportation to a degree that even themselves are not aware of. At)proximately 5,(~)0 communities in the Nation nse no other means ot transI)ortation. In the industrial world, motor freight trans- port which has a capacity of about one-twentieth that of the rails is es- timated to be handling about one-fifth of the war load. So, Reconversion Day tends to re- mind us that, regardless of time and change, automotive transportation seems destined to hold a prominent and permanent place in America's economy. REMEMBER PrARL HARBOR THE CATALINA' USED HOUSEHOLD FATS ON U. S. PRIORITY LIST While the amount of used ;fat col- lected and turned in by one house- wife may seem a small contribution to America's vast war effort it is this contribution multiplied millions of times that prevents the nation's vital fat supply from reaching disastrous depletion said M. A. Sloan, District Director, Office of Supply, U. S. De- partment of Agriculture. Today, more than ever, household fats are vitally needed in the manu- facture of war materia!s and civilian goods. The responsibility is being shifted more and more, Sloan said, on house- wives who are already ~loing a tre- mendous job in reaching the 250,000,- 000 pound used fats goal for this year. "The reduction in output of many civilian items announced recently was necessary because the nation's stock- --nt 10'el pile O(nUSed fats is at pre;s, Sl0S" than " the past two yea ~ntil P~,~, said."No relief is in sightag~ cific sources of fat supply are producing." "There can be no let up in the a~l ing and collecting of fats norW0gra~ housewives cooperating in the must save every drop. If thispis d0~ patriotically our goal will be reaCl%0t Sloan said. For every pound of 1Is fats turned in, housewives will co~ tS ' tinue to receive up to four cen cash and two red ration points. ON TO VICTORY~ The paregoric era of raising is over.
