START PLANNING FOR STATE FAIR w Like many another veteran, the California btate Fair, which went to war otl December 8, 1941, is beginuing to look forward to its honorable dis- charge. Since Pearl Harbor the grounds and buildings have been used by the army as a grea@military stor- age depot. Looking forward to H-Day when the army releases the Fair Grounds, the Board of Directors of the State Agricultural Society this week sent a letter to William A. Smitfi, Chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, inviting the Board to start planning now for the County's participation in the first post-war fair "The military situation is developing to the point," the invitation states, "where the Directors of the State Ag- ricultural Society are making provis- ion for the resumption of the Cali- fornia State Fair as soon as practic- able." "The success of the California State Fair is largely dependent upon exhibits from each of the individual counties and cities comprising the State of California, wherein each county displays the products and re- sources from which it receives its revenue." There was no indication from the Board as to when the next fair will be held. However, the recent appoint- ment of F. M. Sandusky, who was in charge of exhibits and concessions at both the San Francisco Golden Gate International Exposition and the Cali- fornia International Exposition in San Diego, as Manager of the State Fair, indicates they already are preparing many new features for the next fair. ~ iii in i Applications are now I~ing ac- ceptmt by the USMSTS Ava]6n for positions as stenographers, typists, and clerks.

CH*RISTIAN SCIENCE LESSON TOPIC 'GOD' "God" was the subject of the Sunday Lesson-Sermon in all branches of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston. This verse from the Psalms was the Gohten Text: "The Lord hath prepared his throne ill the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all." A Bible selection from Matthew read, "And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying Lord, wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, 1 will; be thou clean And innnediately his leprosy was cleansed . . ~,Vhen the even was come tiley brought unto hiln many that were pos- sessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick." Mary baker Eddy said in "Science and Health with Key to the Scrip- tures: The Christian Scientist has enlisted to lessen evil, disease, and death; and he will overcome them by u1~derstandiug their nothingness and tile ahless o1( Gnu, or good. Sickness to him is no less a temptation than is sin, and he heals them both by under- stan,:,ng God's power over them." AVALON COMMUNITY CHURCH C.

NAVY Plans for a revolutionary new type of nays| craft are now in the hands of the General Board of the Navy be- cause a very busy admiral wasn't too busy to look them over. For six years. Andrew J. Easter, a naval architect with the Bureau of Ships iu Washing- ton, has been doing his best to get somebody in the Navy to look over his blueprints and sketches. Every- body was too busy. Nobody was inter- ested. Easter says his ship is a combination aircraft-carrier, troop carrier and PT boat carrier. It is as long as a tanker, can carry the same number of troops as present troop carriers, along with a number of planes like present escort carriers, as well as torpedo boats. If used only for planes, it can carry 600 of them. Present carriers, he said, carry from 90 to 100 planes and cost $60,000,000 to build. Easter's ship can be built for $6,000,000 and can be con- structed and launched while other cap- ital ships are still in the blueprint stage. In time of peace, he said, his all-purpose craft can be used as a cargo vessel which, because o[ certain refinements, can' be loaded and unload- ed much more speedily and efficiently than most modern craft. W~thin a week it could be converted back to a warship. It carries heavy armor and fwdnance.
