General Electric developed the world's most powerful engine for the world's fastest plane--the G-E jet propulsion engine for the Lockheed P-80 "Shooting Star." It is over twice as powerful as previous models produced for the Army Air Forces. 234,732 STOCKHOLDERS. Ownership of the company was divided among more stockhold- ere than ever before. Dividends,were $1.40 per share--same as 1943 and 1942, less than 1941 and 1940. Net income was less than 1940, while sales billed were 3  times greater. PEODUION INCREASED. For the fourth suc- eeaeive year, General Electric turned out record quantities of war goods despite an average of 2 per cent fewer employees. G. E. produced over 8,000,000 horsepower of ship prop ,ulsion turbines for the Navy in 1944. NEW DEVELOPMENTS. G-E research and engineering played a part in such recent de- velopments as radar, silicones, jet propulsion, rocket weapons, remote gun control for the B-29 "Superfortrees," the A-26 "Invader," and the P-61 "Black Widow." 4735 WAR VETERANS HIRED.

EWT, C.[, General Electric Company, Schenectady, New York GENERAL ELECTRIC SOFT FRUIT (ontinued From Page 1) the ceiling was 3/ cents per pound, or the equivalent where container rates were used. For peaches, the maximum piece-work rate was 10 cents per 40:pound lug; ani for apricots, 20 cents per 40-pound lug. Mr. Nichols added that modifi- cation of the ceiling rates may be approved by the WFA Wage Board where adverse orchard evn- d'itions, low yields, or other fac- tors result in undue hardship to workers or growers. Revised specific wage ceilings for general orchard work and picking summer apples this year !were issued by the War Food Ad- ministration, effective Aril 13. The new ceilings provide differ- en rates where transportation or housing are furnished, namely, 80 ents an hour when either hou- sing or transportation, or both are furnished and 85 cents wth- out housing or transportation. Since considerable time is us- ually required in .the process of making a revision in ceilings, Mr. Nichols suggested that i.t is not .too early for consideration of flais year's rates. Specific wage ceilings operated very effectively during ,the past year in bringing about a more equable dstribution of ,the avail- able labor supply among compeL- ing farming operations and areas, and in lessening :the losses to both growers and workers inciden o labor turnover, Mr. Nichols ad- ded. Grawers generally have be- nefitted through ,increased lro- ductSon with a more stable labor force. Because of ,the broad public in- terest erved by farm wage sta- bilization, namely, providing all food possible m rne war energen- cy and at the same ,time holding the line against inflation in living costs, the War Food Administra- tor expects relatively few serious infractions. However, investiga- tion and enforcement machinery is available .to deal with violations that do occur. The law is binding upon both .the employer and the employee, under either the general regula- tions or specific wage ceilings. Penalties of- fine and imprison- ment, not exleeding $1,000 or one year, are provided for willful transgression. In addi.tion, the a- moun.t of wages paid at an illegal rate may be disregarded by the Bhreau o{ Internal Revenue in determining the income .tax,ion of the employer. These pena]Lies may be invoked jointly or separ- ately according to administrative decision. The producer or falnn worker who does not understand ,the operations of .the agricultural wage and salary stabilization pro- gram, or who has a problem per- .taining to wage stabilization, is invited by Mr. Nichols to write direc.t to the Washington WFA Wage Board, 235 Liberty Build- ing, Yakima. Application blanks for wage adjustanen.t ad other printed informatign may be ob- .tained from the County Agricul- tural Agent or from the Farm La- bor Office readily accessible ,to both farmers and farm workers.

Is it true, Judge, that distillers recover part of the grain they use in making war-alcohol?" OLD JUDGE:"That's absolutely true, Jim. Wherever the government has permitted distillers to [ trchase the equipment neces- sary to reprocess the used grain, at least 50% of the feed value (25% by weight) of the whole grain is recovered. It comes back to farms like yours in the form of premium- quality livestock feed.., rich in vitamins B1 and B." JIM:" Is the same thing true when distillers are permitted to make whiskey, Judge?" OLD JUDGE:" Yes, every bit as true, Jim." This adt,ertisement sponsored by Conference o] Alcoholic Bceemge Industries, [* /
