01. the campaign against hunger food imports from overseas for Germany take their progress despite the difficulties caused by the winter to an increasing extent.
The river navigation is used as far as possible to relieve the railway. Würzburg, one of the main hub of the American zone, the cargo per axle is forwarded. From Bremen are shipped under German responsibility.
Frankfurt am Main is an important distribution place. Overall, over one million tons of American food were introduced since the war until December 31 last year. On average an overseas freighters has gone on in this period every three days Bremen. Together 150 ships, their loading fills out 10,000 railroad cars. These figures include only food aid given by the U.S. military Government for the German population in the U.S. zone. All food imports, which were intended for prisoners of war, trafficked people and the occupying power, are here considered. Munich also established a central warehouse. Here, the merchandise is prepared for the output to the small distributors. For the first half of the year 1947, the import plan of the Government envisages an additional supply of 700,000 tons of food. Thus, the nutrition set of the civilian population to 34% will consist of American aid. All these food imports are for the time being denied from American taxpayers.
The food from overseas have a long way behind, until they finally have arrived; the retailer, on the counter, and - in the market bag.
04. new aid for war a Düsseldorf drivers after several years attempts a device developed, which returns the full performance capacity in specific industrial professions forearm amputated. Unscrew the device on the standardized forearm prosthesis.
The invention enables even difficult working at the Workbench, also milling and drilling precision machines. Changing of the assistance unit.
The war reached as the pace of work and the accuracy of an average worker.
And here a specialized application of the device for a one-armed goods vehicle driver.
Tyre changes and minor repairs precisely run - and even more: the disabled can drive any car using a button on the steering wheel and the gearshift lever - and completely safe. The inventor has recently filed the exams for all driver's licenses successfully.
(New assistive devices for disabled - a new hope for many, back full-fledged work to do.)
03. updates soon: a. nationalization of the coal mines, England England has nationalized its coal mines. The biggest upheaval in the industrial history of England took place with the acquisition of approximately 1,700 mines from private ownership by the public authorities.
700,000 miners of 300 individual companies were employees of the State.
This battle for the nationalisation of the coal industry had lasted for 40 years.
At the first, held in solemn framework management meeting of the new Office of coal were present: Minister Shinwell and Foreign Secretary Bevin.
Prime Minister Attlee conveyed the greetings and wishes of the nation.
In a sign of the new era, the flag of the recent British Government company is flown everywhere.
b. Montgomery, the Chief of the British general staff, field marshal Lord Montgomery, Berlin, Moscow followed an invitation of the Soviet-Russian chiefs of staff to visit to. A stopover in Gatow in Berlin Sir Brian Robertson, the Deputy Military Governor of Germany, and the Commander of the Russian Militärregierungin Berlin, General Kotikow published by high Russian and British officers to the greeting of the field marshal, among them Lieutenant-General.
Montgomery was a guest of the Red Army during his Moscow stay, and was received by Stalin in the Kremlin. The Soviet Chief Marshal Wassiliewsky will travel to England in the spring to visit.
edertal dam, Germany c. here's a reason for the electricity shortages in whole Germany: lack of water everywhere.
These pictures of the edertal dam show how far the water level has dropped.
Normal way contains the Edersee about 200 million cubic meters of water, only 11 million. Since many parts of Germany draw their power from the plant of the edertal dam, the failure paralyses farthest areas of the public and private economy. Granted once in the creation of the reservoir and flooded villages are now free. -Previously submerged bridges and roads are returning to the fore.
Lowest water level since the founding of the edertal dam allows repairs to the otherwise inaccessible parts of the separation barrier the turbines of the plant be kept still in operation, to prevent freezing. Expected to be reached again the normal water level and the normal power generation in March.
d. Pope Pius XII. blessing from the balcony of St. Peter, the largest church of in Christendom, have been for centuries on special occasions the Popes the faithful of Rome and all over the world. Here Pope Pius XII. granted the Apostolic blessing on the occasion of a call for the strengthening and deepening of the religious faith of the amount.
04. Frankfurt today Frankfurt am Main - once the capital of the Holy Roman Empire of the German nation and important to the modern day junction of transport, economy and culture - has have to pay heavy tribute in this war: 36,000 were destroyed by a total 45,000 houses partially or completely.
Debris everywhere. Its elimination is top priority of the reconstruction plan. From all parts of the city the debris be moved to the outside nearby Eastern Park, where is a factory for recycling this million cubic metres of debris in the making.
Leading men of the city administration - among them Mayor Kolb - go ahead to lead by example. Clean up thoroughly on the historic Römerberg.
The Goethe House - should be rebuilt in two years, to the poet 200th birthday.
St. Paul's Church - here was the first German National Assembly in 1848.
The Town Hall. - And here the main station in the heart of the city. -The historical Katherinenkirche... And the 500-year-old Eschenheimer Tower. Unverwundet, it rises from the rubble.
In Opera and drama theatre can be played No more - a provisionally equipped made room in the partially destroyed stock exchange is now cultural purposes. The surviving Schumann theater. Right the poet Carl Zuckmayer, who instantly travelled Germany as a American consultant for the essence of theatre.
Earlier, Frankfurt had 8 main bridges - today 4 are back in operation. This construction work on the new "old bridge".
Mayor Kolb inaugurated the so-called "Eiserner Steg" after its reconstruction.
Frankfurt's industry - to 60% kriegszerstört - lives again: the Eagle works manufacture typewriters, bicycles and cars in increasing production.
That former IG colors building - 1928 built and undamaged - today is headquarters of American forces in Europe.
The traffic is a barometer of the back rise. Daily again 300 people and 200 freight trains run through Frankfurt's train stations.
In the streets pulsating life, and here and - as here in the Imperial road - there is again real Frankfurt sausages - brands Of course.
The Café Rumpelmayer - now an American soldier Club.
160,000 tonnes of goods are handled in the main port already monthly.
Frankfurt today: the image of a city that looks the way in the future from tradition and building will.
05. images from all over the world: a. wash day of men, England also a sign of the times: the urban laundry in the London district of Holborn has set up a laundry day for men.
Bachelors and sometimes husbands make a pilgrimage on this day with bundles of clothes under the arm to the place which otherwise is an exclusive sanctuary of women. Nana - there but the better half has smuggled in a piece of her clothes! And now the slogan is: the man - is himself into in the moist pleasure. The experts are sure some mistake in this male scrubbing and lathering, wringing and rinsing - but what does it matter! In the end, these small "big laundry" is but a resounding success. SOAP is scarce - oops - almost the piece was gone. Safe is safe.
At the end of the high art of the Plättens. Also this last hurdle in the obstacle course of re-crediting is taken with leidlicher elegance. Yes - ladies: just learned is learned!
b. skiing in Spain skiing on its conquest by the World South penetrate: the long boards are a familiar sight in the Pyrenees today, and there is this [...]Lichen Massif slopes, to include the most beautiful in Europe.
Powder snow and Southern Sun - this is an ideal ski terrain - what is a winter sports needs: he needs only one thing: a good departure technique, because the trees have a hard rind - also in the newly discovered ski paradise of the Pyrenees.
(c). A prodigy from China a wunderkind from China: the eight Wung-Ting-Pu from Shanghai.
He came to San Francisco with his two sisters and imagines there with an own composition - titled: Dragon whisper.
01. The Battle against Hunger
In spite of the difficulties caused by winter conditions food importations for Germany are steadily increasing. After arrival at Bremen, shipping is done under German responsibility. As far as possible the rivers are used for transportation in order to relieve the railways. Convoys of trucks help to lighten the problem.
From Würzburg, one of the US Zone's main loading centres, cargo is transported by rail.
Frankfurt, too, is an important centre of distribution. From the end of the war to the 31th of December 1946, more than one million tons of food-stuffs were imported. [...] During this time an average of three steamers a day from overseas entered Bremen.
Altogether 150 ships, carrying cargo which would fill 10.000 box-cars. This figurs are only the additional food supplies fixed by the Military Government for the population of the US-Zone. All food imports for POW's, Displaced Persons and the Occupying Forces are not included here.
Near Munich a storage centre was established. Here the goods are prepared for the "small-distributors." For the first half year of 1947 the import-plan of the U.S.A. provides an additional allocation of 700.000 tons of food, mainly bread-flour.
By that time the civil population will consume 34% American food-supplies. All these food imports are at present paid by the American tax-payers. They make possible the fight against hunger.
The stuffs from abroad have a long way to go until finally they reach the "small distributors", on the counter, and into the house-wife's market bag.
02. New aid for war victims
After trying for several years, a disabled driver succeded in developing a device which gives full working power to one-armed men in several industrial occupations. This device is screwed on the artificial arm. The invention make difficult work at the turning-lathe possible, even drilling on precision machines.
Changing the device. The disabled gain the working speed and exactness of normal workers.
And here a special application of the device for one-armed drivers.
Changing tires and repair work can be carried out - and more with the help of a little button on the wheel he can change gear - and with entire safety. The inventor recently passed examination for a driving licence for all types of cars.
New help for disabled men - new hope for many to regain full working power.
03. Actualities in Brief:
a. Coalmines nationalized, England
England has nationalized her coal mines. With the taking over of about 1.700 mines from private owners the hitherto revolution in England's industrial history was accomplished.
700000 miners of 300 single collieries became State employees. The fight for the nationalization of the coal-industry lasted for 40 years.
The first administrative Session of the new National Coal Board was attended by Minister Shinwell. Foreign Minister Bevin and Primeminister Attlee, who brought the greetings and wishes of the whole nation.
As symbol of the new era the flag of the newest British governmental establishment is hoisted.
b. Montgomery in Berlin
The Chief of the British General Staff, Field Marshall Lord Montgomery, has accepted an invitation of the Soviet Russian General Staff to visit Moskow.
At the airfield in Gatow near Berlin high-ranking Russian and British officers came to welcome the Field Marschal, among them Lt. General Sir Brian Robertson, acting British Military Governor for Germany, and the Commander of the Russian Military Government in Berlin, General Kotikow.
During his stay in Moskow Montgomery was guest of the Red Army and was received by Stalin in the [...] Yremlin.
The Soviet Russian Chief of the General Staff, Marshal Wassiliewsky, is going to pay a return visit to England in Spring.
c. Eder Dam, Germany
Here is a reason for the electric-power shortage in Germany: the lack of water everywhere.
These pictures of the Eder Dam show how low the level was dropped.
As many districts of Germany receive electric current from the Eder Power Station, the shortage paralizes wide areas of the general and private economy.
The villages and streets once evacuated and flooded when the dam was built are now coming in sight again. Normally the Eider Lake contains 200 million cubic-meters of water: at present there are only 11 million. This lowest water level since its establishment makes possible repair-work at the otherwise inaccessible lower part of the dam.
The turbies are still kept running to avoid freezing.
The normal water level is expected to rise in March, and with this, reestablish normal electric power.
d. Pope Pius XII
For centuries the balcony of St. Peter's the largest cathedral in Christianity, has been place where the Popes show themselves to religious folks of Rome and the whole world at special occasions.
Here Pope Pius XII. gives the people the apolostic blessing on occasion of a call to awaken religious belief.
04. Frankfurt Today
Frankfurt o/Main, once the metropolis of the Holy Roman Empire of Germanic Nations and until our times important cross-road of Traffic, economy and culture - had to pay a heavy price for this war: out of 45.000 houses 36.000 were partly or completely destroyed. Rubble everywhere - and its clearing is a main part in the plan of reconstruction.
The rubble is transported from all parts of the town to the nearly East Park where a factory is being built to use the millions of cubic-meters of debris.
Leading men of the municipal office - among them Burgomaster Kolb - set a good example. They cooperate in clearing the historical Roemerberg. The Goethe House is supposed to be rebuilt in 2 years - on the poet's 200th birthday.
St. Paul's Chathedral - here in 1848 the first German National Convention was held.
And here, the Hauptwache in the City. The historical Cathrine's Church ... and the 500 year old Eschenheimer Tower, which stands unhurt among the ruins.
The Opera and the Schauspielhaus cannot be used any longer -- a make-shift hall in the partly damaged Börse serves now for cultural purposes. The undameged Schuman Theatre.
To the right, the author Carl Zuckmayer, who is in Germany to survey theatrical matters. Formerly Frankfurt had 8 bridges across the Main River - today only 4 are usable. Here reconstruction work on the new "Old Bridge".
Burgomaster Kolb opens the "Iron Road" after it is repaired. Frankfurt's industry up to 60% war-damaged - is reviving: The Adler Works are producing type-writers, bicycles, and motor-cars. The former IG Farben Building - built in 1928 and left unhurt - is now the Headquarters of the U.S. Forces in Europe.
A barometer of revival is the traffic. Each day 300 passenger- and 200 goods-trains pass through Frankfurt Station.
In the streets life pulses. Here in Kaiser Street you can even buy Frankfurters - on coupons, of course.
The Café Rumpelmayer - now an American Soldiers club. At the Main harbour already 160.000 tons of goods are received every month.
Frankfurt today: a picture of a town which seeks its way into the future by tradition and will-to-reconstruction.
05. New flashes from everywhere:
a. Washing-day for Men, London
Another mark of our times. The municipal laundry in the London district of Holborn has established a washing-day for men. And bachelors and sometimes husbands go with their bundles of laundry under their arms to the place which is normally only a "playground" for women. Clothing material is short, and the laundries take orders only once a month.
Hey - the wife has smuggled in a peace of her underwear. And now to work. The experts will certainly find many a mistake in the male scrubbing and soaping and rinsing - but who cares.
In the end the washing is a great seccess. Soap is short - wow - that piece was nearly gone. Well - that's not to everybody's taste. Finally the art of ironing.
Yes ladies: who must - can.
b. Skiing in Spain
The Ski-sport on its dash of conquest through the world rushes to the South: to the Pyrenées.
Here in the southern mountains are slopes which are among Europe's best.
Powdery snow and sun - and an ideal ski-district -what more can the winter sportsman want! But what he needs is good technique, for the trees in the newly discovered skiing paradise of the Pyrenées add zest and danger to the sport.
d. A Wonder-Child from China
A Wonder-Child from China: the 8 year old Wung Ting Pu from Shanghai.
He came, with his 2 sisters, to San Francisco to perform his own composition, untitled "Dragons'-chat."
