Oct. 27 (/P>— Three guards from unbeaten Navy, Washington and the Texas Aggies; a tackle from Ohio State: and a center from Tulane were outstanding linemen in last Saturday's college football games. The feats of these five. Ben Chase, of Navy: Damon Tassos, Texas Aggies: Bill Ward, Washington; Bill Willis. Ohio State: and Buddy Gatewood, Tula"he, stood out in a long list of notable achievements by generally overlooked guards, tackles, centers and ends Navy coaches declared Chase played the best of any Navy lineman against Georgia Tech; that his defensive play kept the Engineers from upsetting the Middies. Ohio State lost to Northwesern, but in the opinion of Buckeye Coach Paul Brown, there was "no question that Willis was the outstanding man at his position on the field. He's the backbone of our defense, making tackles at the line of scrimmage and elsewhere all over the field. I got letters from three high school coaches who saw the game and all they could talk about was Willis." Klepto Holmes, coach of the North Texas Agges who held the Texas Agges to a scoreless deadlock, said this about Tassos: "He .vas the toughest fellow we went up aganst. We haven't gotten him out of our hair yet. It seemed no matter where we got a hole open Tas- ios.was there before the ball car- •ier." Gatewood drew high praise from James Stewart, coach of the Southern Methodist eleven that lost to Tulane. "That guy was in our hair all lay," Stewart said. "Not only did le do a great job of backing up the ine. .but he intercepted a pass back of his goal line that hurt us plenty. We were touchdown bound when he did this." As for Ward, a former Washing- on State star, his coach Ralph 'Pest" Welch, pointed out two of (V'ashington's touchdowns against vlarch Field were made through Ward's position. He played 55 minutes and was equally strong on de- 'ense and offense. Other linemen singled out for praise included: Tackles: Len Kennon, Oklahoma. Guards Phil Lane, Kansas State; Stan Mohrbacker, Iowa. Centers Wayne Hird. Kansas. Ends: Joe Parker, Texas. HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS lONE UNFURNISHED FOUR t\room house Near.

Johnny Eslick kicked off the brake, yipped "All right, take it up," and we were bouncing along a mountain road behind nine Siberian huskies. Johnny is one of the dog experts training teams for Army sled work at the Camp Rimini war dog reception center. Perched on the scat of a stripped-down Austin automobile, used in summer training, he talked about his team. "The Army buys these sled dogs up in Canada and Alaska, and ships 'em here for training. "We train them all the time, although the job really is conditioning and teaching team work more than anything else," Johnny continued. "In the winter we train them with the Army's all-purpose sled, built to carry supplies or wounded men, and to travel on cither soft snow or ice." Near the adult dog area is the puppy camp, filled with fat, sprawling husky pups, born into the Army. They'll take their places in the harness later on. Camp Rimini, commanded by Major E. J. Purfield of the quartermaster corps, has some 500 sled and pack dogs. Training the sled teams arc such men as Sgt. Richard Moullon, of Meredith, N. H., who worked with Byrd in the Antarctic and the Army in Baffinland; and Cpls. Edward Moody and Malcolm Douglas of East Orange. N. ,L, both on Bird's last South Pole expedition. A lot of dogs which normally would have been lawn ornaments or out-size companions are learning to work as pack dogs, and some are part of the dogs for defense program. They are selected for size, willingness and good na- I lure. It takes about three months to ' train a pack dog, but when they 1 are turned over to Army units they are qualified to carry GO pounds of supplies or other items in rugged, cold mountain country. In the winter they pull a pulka. built on the principle of the Indian travels, and fashioned so that the dogs have complete freedom of movement. Army dogs pull pulka loads equal to their I own weight—an average of 150 pounds. And around sled dogs, there's one conversational taboo —nobody says "all right." unless he's starting a team. It's the husky equivalent of "scram," — as one scr- Beauty & Bull 'i-, i, A » "t , yt 7 u t '•'"»(''' f;f "f f /S- >J .j ' i \ Wednesday, October 27, !94| Odd Fellows, Rebekah Group Elect Officers Malvern, Oct. 27 W> A father and daughter will hold important posts in the Independent Order of Odd fellows and the Kebekah Assembly of Arkansas during the coining year.

The social security law, when passed eight years ago, provided that the lax rate should be increased nl certain fixed dales. In 1941 and again in 1942 the law was amended to postpone the effective date for the increase, which under the law as it now stands is January 1, 1944. The increase will be automatic unless congress again passes an amendment extending the date. ^ The present tax rate is two per cent on payrolls, one per cent being paid by employers and one per cent by employees. Calling attention to the fact that congress twice has enacted legislation to prevent the social wf a reduction in the basic wage S' Lewis' telegram read: ?

' "Altmeyer, of course, is interested only in higher tax rates and more money. He said nothing lo the finance committee about the fact that the total surplus of $4,268,296,000 now in the social secur- 'ity fund is almost 12 times the total disbursements of $359,000,000 dur- ,lng the'jlife of the system from 1937 'to^une; '30/ 1943, and nearly- 29 times "'tfie 'Disbursements of $149,H 000,000 in the,, last .fiscal, year.; Neither did he mention the'fact that the administrative cost of $27,000,000 for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1943, was 18.12 per cent of the disbursements during that same year, an abnormally high administrative cost. "Surplus funds of the Social Security Board arc not kept in cash, but arc invested in government bonds, which means that the excess funds collected for social security purposes arc loaned to the government and placed in the general fund for expenditures in defraying whatever appropriations congress may make. Interest that accrued to the social security fund up lo June 30, 1943, totaled $66,823,000, or nearly half of the amount of the dislurscments during tho last fiscal year. "These figures show definitely that there is no need for a step-up in the social security tax rate at this time, even though, to quote Altmeyer, "ability to make those contributions is at a maximum." Thc ability to pay is being drawn upon heavily by the government to finance the war, which assuredly is a more important present need than piling up more excess surplus in the social security fund for future use. "There is a hidden danger also in a huge surplus social security fund. It would lead to temptations on the part of people liberal with other people's money to augment social security payments and a general clamor by social security beneficiaries for a step-up in the amounts allotted to them. "Need for the funds, and not workers' ability to make contributions, should be the guide to be followed by congress, and certainly there should be no increase in the social security tax, and much less a doubling of that lax, until congress is convinced of actual necessity, which does not exist now. Altmeyev's uneasiness concerning the "uncertainty as to when" should net be an influencing factor." Japs Staggering Under Airblows, Lose 525 Planes Allied Headquarters in the Southwest Pacific, Oct. 28 —W 5 )— R a - baul, a keystone In the wall of island outposts manned by the Japanese in defense of the Philippines, is staggering under aerial knockout blows which already have destroyed or damaged 525 planes in 13 days. In five raids there between Oct. 12 and 25, the enemy's network of airfields has been churned by more than 500 tons of bombs; the hundreds of attacking American bombers and fighters have shot down tor damaged 175 of the 250 planes the Japs managed to get into the air; and Rabaul's" reputed anti-aircraft defenses have been unable to halt the devastation. This certain destruction of 377 enemy planes and probable damaging or destruction of 148 others at the very heart of Japanese air might in the Southwest Pacific has cost General MacArthur only 13 planes and some of their crews were saved. (Radio Tokyo in-nn English language broadcast beamed to America declared Allied forces had landed on Mono island, also known as Treasury island, early Wednesday. One U. S. warship was said to have been sunk, and another damaged. (There was no confirmation from U. S. headquarters in the South Pacific although a dispatch today from Associated Press Correspondent William Hippie at Admiral William F. Halsey's headquarters said Treasury island had been attacked for the first time by American airmen. The island, 20 miles south and west of Shoraltnd island, . was thought to be garri- s.oned ;Avith Japanese, artillerymen gaiujding. .the sea approaches to •encjny ,v held',Bougainville in the northern'Solomons.) '" Only one Liberator was lost on the latest raid announced by headquarters today and six of its crew were rescued, an achievement even more amazing in the light of the fact that the Liberators had to do practically all their fighting as well as bombing because bad weather forced most of the escorting Light- nings to turn back. This fifth raid occurred Monday, marking the third straight day of assaults to smash the enemy's New Britain stronghold. The Liberators, absorbing considerable damage from ack ack, dropped 151 tons of bombs, destroyed 21 planes on the Lakunai airdrome and shot down at least 37 of 70 interceptors. Forty- three other enemy planes were damaged. Significant changes are being wrought by the mounting fury of Allied air might. Rabaul is being cracked wide open. Bougainville, Rabaul's Solomons outpost, has sustained plane losses of more than 400 since the current Allied offensive opened June 30 and presently cannot even put planes in the air to halt methodical destruction of its airfields. Wewak, New Guinea, through which Rabaul's air replacements once moved from the west, lost upward of 400 planes in August and September to Allied raiders and that traffic virtually has > stopped. Rabaul now is understood to get replacements largely from Truk to the north. Today a spokesman for Ad William F. Halsey said reports through Monday showed the Japanese still were attempting to make no use of their Kahili and Kara airfields on South Bougainville and Ballale in the Shortlands. In four days, Oct. 22-25, five hundred tons of bombs have torn up those fields. Since last Saturday, not a Japanese plane has been seen in the sky. Ex-Governor Bailey Marries Secretary Little Rock, Oct. 28 —(/P)— Former Governor Carl E. Bailey was married here yesterday to Miss Marjoric Complon, his secretary for the past 12 years. The Rev. Travis White, pastor of the First Christian church, performed the ceremony in the presence of members of the immediate families. The couple left the city immediately following the ceremony. The marriage license gave Bailey's age as 48, Miss Compton's as 39. Bailey and his first wife were divorced a year and a half ago. Cattle Price Control in Effect Dec. 1 Washington, Oct. 28 — {/P)— The nation's cattle markets were notified today the price control phases of the government's new live cattle subsidy program will not go into effect until Dec. 1. The Office of Economic Stabilization, which announced the new program, said the markets were free to operate until the end of November on the basis which has been applicable since the original rollback subsidy program was inaugurated last June. Under that portion of the program which becomes effective Dec. 1, slaughterers and processors must pay within specified price ranges tor live cattle in order to be eligible for the cattle subsidy, which will vary from 50 cents to $1.45 per hundred pounds, depending on the grade of the cattle bought. The only portion of the new program to become effective on Nov. 1 is the offer of a special subsidy of 80 cents per hundred pounds to small slaughterers who, the OES said, have been squeezed by pres- .ent price control regulations. The OES issued clarifying statements on its new program last night after livestock markets became confused over various aspects of the new setup, including effective dates. Under phases of the program becoming effective ' in December, slaughterers and processors must p,£V-y prices ranging from a minimum of $7.45 per hundred pounds for cutter and canner grade cattle to a top of $16 for choice grade, Chicago basis, to be eligible for the livestock payments. (However, there will bo no price-range straings on the special 80-cent subsidy for small slaughterers.) Price ranges for other markets arc to be announced before Dec. 1. Officials emphasized, however, that slaughterers and processors would be free to pay any price they desired if they do not want the subsidy. They said, however, the competitive situation was expected to keep prices within the desired ranges. Unaffected by the program will be feeders who buy cattle for further feeding and fattening. They may pay any price, but they would be unlikely to pay prices out of line with those set up under the subsidy program.

American Fliers Tell of Grim Treatment Suffered at Hands of German People (The following dispatch, quoting exchanged American prisoners of war on their experiences in Germany, contains material which United Stales army censors in Britain held up when first presented to them on the arrival of the men in Liverpool Monday. It is now released after two days of consideration.) By JOHN F. CHESTER ; A Hospital in Cheshire, England. ! Oct. 28 —(/P)— Fourteen ill and wounded American soldiers freed from German prison camps and brought here for treatment, said to- dav — Germans were pessimistic over the outcome of the war and many of them were so angry at Americans they spat upon and stoned them. One man severely wounded in Sicily, Pfe. Herbert Enrich, of Brooklyn, N. Y.. said all the Germans he talked to were "pessimistic over the outcome of the war and most of them seemed to think it would be over by January, 1944." It was the fliers, parachuting down after air raids, who drew the fire •>! Nazi civilians. "The Germans spit on us one or twice and we got plenty of scowls and dirty looks but suffered no acutal violence," said S-Sgt.

Enemy resistance was reported jelling along the entire front as the two Allied armies punched doggedly forward over rough countryside, mowing down one strong outpost after another and approaching the new German main lines. At the Adriatic end of the front, Gen. Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's headquarters pnnounced that his British troops ,iad firmly secured a bridgehead over the Trigno river despite sharp and continuous enemy fighting to wipe out his position on the northwest banks. In the face of what was officially termed "extremely accurate" artillery bombardment, Eighth Army engineers continued to thro new bridges across the stream. Artillery fire also was intense to thevsouthwest on the'Eighth Army front, where Eighth Army units in a four-mile drive from the last preyiously -announced positions captured the town of Torella Del Sannio nine miles northwest of Campobasso, and.Mafalda , seven miles northwest of Montefalcone and near the southeast bank of the Trigno. (The Berlin- radio, in a broadcast recorded in London by Reuters, said that Montefalcone, along With Torella Del Sannio and Mon- terru'tro, also had been abandoned by-sthe. .Germans.) ;•• The town of Castelmauro, six miles northwest of Palata, . was taken by Eighth Army units after a relatively small scale but extremely bitter battle in which the British advanced a mile and a half beyond their former line. Still farther south the Germans employed harassing tactics against the British advance forces penetrating beyond Bojano along the vital main island road toward Isernia. The Nazis employed both medium and field artillery to hinder the thrust of the American troops in the central and right sectors of the Fifth Army front. Lt.-Gen. Mark W. Clark's troops, however, attacked and drove the Germans from more important high ground along both sides of the Volturno and widened the base of their salient by taking Riardo, nine miles southwest of Raviscanina and 11 miles northwest of Capua. The gains left the Americans of the Fifth Army and the Canadians and British on the left of the Eighth Army still short of the main' mountain defense line toward which the Germans are slowly withdrawing. The difficulty of the advance was indicated by the communique from Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's headquarters which said "enemy positions strongly held cover all main approaches and have to be dealt with in detail." As far as is indicated in official reports the Eighth army has driven across the Trigno only in the immediate area of the river's mouth. Mafalda, taken by the Eighth army is about nine miles inland and about two miles south of the river. It is four miles southeast of Montenero, previously captured. With the Mediterranean virtually cleared of enemy shipping and the German air force apparently too weak and too far away to attempt further raids on North African ports, the northwest African coastal air force has transferred its activity largely to (he Adriatic. j Numerous losses have been in- j flicted in the past few weeks on i German shipping creeping from I port to port on the Italian and Yu- j goslav sides of that sea. I This traffic is vital to the Geri mans. On the Italian side the I movement of troops and supplies | to the front by land has been | slowed by air attacks on roads , and railways, and the Germans have resorted to coastal shipping to speed it up. On the Dalmatian j coast many German garrisons can get supplies only by sea and air because of poor roads and guerrilla activity. i NEW METHODIST GROUP i Memphis.

Captured Jap Submarine Will Be Shown in Hope Nov. 19 to Aid the Sale of War Bonds Disorganized Nazis in Danger of Encirclement —Europe America's first trophy captured after the attack on Pearl Harbor— the Japanese two-man suicide submarine—will visit Hope on November 19 on its nation-wide War Bond tour for the U. S. Treasury Department. The submarine is mounted on a tractor-trailer, 94 feet long and will be paraded through the streets-to the exhibit location, probably on Main street, where it will be on display from 6:30 p .m. November 19 until closing time. The submarine will arrive in Hope about supper-time for an all- night stop here, after playing brief stands at other towns earlier the same day. The submarine tentatively is scheduled to be shown in Prescott from about 4:30 p. m. to 5:30, on November 19, continuing thence to Hope for showing beginning at 6:30 p. m. The nation-wide tour of the submarine started Navy Day, October 27, from San Francisco and has been as effective in its stimulation of War Bond and Stamp sales as the submarine was supposed to have been in its sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. The submarine, after its capture, was taken apart at Pearl Harbor by the U. S. Navy for study, and photographs were taken and blueprints made of the many parts. The submarine was then shipped to*the Mare Island Navy Yard at San Francisco and put back together. Portholes were cut in both sides of the hull and folding steps and catwalks put on so that the public might view the interior. The only means of entrance is through a 15% inch opening atop the conning tower. The only requirement for the viewing of this submarine at close range is the purchase of War Savings Bonds or Stamps. During the exhibition of the submarine, Bond and Stamp booths will be manned by volunteers provided by the War Savings Committee for the sale of War Bonds and Stamps, which the purchasers keep, it was announced. London, Oct. 28 — (ip) — Soviet armies blasting westward along a 150-mile long front today threatened the encirclement of still pow- werful but disorganized German forces in a slowly closing pocket below Dnepropetrovsk in Southern Russia. . Fall of strongly defended Krivoi Rog, iron ore and rail center already reported flanked on three sides by Red Army troops, ;wa^ believed to be a matter of hours, battlefront dispatches clearing through Moscow indicated. Capture of Krivoi Rog, a pivotal base for the whole German defense setup in the Southern Ukraine above the Crimea, would enable the Russians to turn the northern arm of their pincers in a southerly direction to close with the opposite arm pushing northwestward from the Melitopol sector. The Berlin radio, terming the fighting a "super-battle," said the Germans were completing "a large withdrawal movement" in the pocket of the Dnieper bend. Moscow declared, • however, Russian forces were effectively cutting up enemy attempts to get out of the trap. • ; The Germans were in slow but steady retreat along the entire southern front, according to a Moscow communique. 'The German high command threw in planes, tanks and; men from Italy, France and Germany in a desperate attempt to-• stem the Russian advance, but to no avail. German transport-/ planes were dropping supplies ;to isolated Nazi units. . ,' The ^relentless .drive carried (he Maniac Sought in Murder of Young Nurse Poughkce.psie, N. Y., Oct. 28 (/P)— A Dutchess county medical officer said today a Vassar Brothers hospital army cadet nurse was slain by "some crazy person" and warned officials they "had better get him before they find some more bodies." Deputy Medical Officer Howard P. Carpenter referred to the murder yesterday of a 19-year- old girl identified by Dsitrict Attorney John R. Schwartz as Lucille Elizabeth Lawrence of Lisbon. N.Y. Schwartz said she was killed by 'complete pulverizing of the skull." Two rocks, which he said may have been murder weapons, were found nearby. The victim, whose partly-clad body was found in a field about 150 feet from the hospital, was last seen about midnight Tuesday by a girl companion with whom she had left a party in Poughkeepsie. Miss Helen G. Owen said she had left Miss Lawrence about 12 blocks from the hospital. Schwartz said no motive had been established for the slaying I and added a microscopic test will | determine whether she had been j raped. Miss Lawrence was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry P. Lawrence of Lisbon. Schwartz said evidence indicated Miss Lawrence had put up a fierce struggle. The victim was 5 feet G inches tall, weighed 132 pounds (Continued on T-wo) National War Fund Now at 87% of Quota Hempstead county's National War Fund drive neared its goal today when collections hit a new high of $7,121.29—which is 87 per cent of the $8,163 county quota. The town of Fulton turned in a community report of S408.25, and in this report there was $47.43 from the Fulton school teachers and pupils, who reported 100 per cent. The National War Fund has only $1,000 to go—but only two days to make it in. The local campaign, in connection with the 125-million-dollar national drive, closes Saturday night. County Chairman James H. Jones urges immediate completion of all canvassing, and col- . lections and donor lists should be turned in to Treasurer Roy Anderson. The National War Fund supports 17 war relief agencies, of which the USO gets 60 per cent of all collections, for the entertainment of the men of the armed forces. United China Relief also is an affiliated agency. Donors are expected lo give one day's pay, and businesses one day's profit. ^4|,^ M . FLOUNDER FACTORIES Flounders, hatched in glass jars, are planted in favorable places in the oceans of the earth to grow and come back to market as filet of sole. .. towns on the heels pit the retreating enemy. The Moscow war bulletin reported Soviet spearheads at Novp-Alexandria, 48 miles west of Melitopol in the south, and at Krm- ichki, 27 miles west of Dneprope- trovsk on the northern end of the fighting front. A secondary thrust carried other Russian troops into the town of Gpreloe, on the sea of Azov, 20 miles from a narrow isthmus joining -the Crimea with the mainland. • The Russians cleared the 70-mile long railroad line from '. Zaporozhe to Melitopol, taking the important town of Aimocka, 14 miles further to the south, in this operation., West of Melitopol three secondary roads were severed, trapping sizable batches of enemy infantry, 20 German tanks and 120 field guns, More than 10,000 Russian civilians, . destined for German labor camps, were liberated in this sector, Moscow said, Formations of Soviet bombing planes attacked the railway junction of Apostolovo, 24 miles southeast of Krivoi Rog, and 36 miles northwest of Nikopol, blasting concentrations of German .war stores. They aided, also, in breaking up heavy tank forces which the Germans were throwing into the battle. The Russian communique said that upwards of 3,000 Nazis were killed in yesterday's fighting on the southern front, indicating that the German transport system had broken down, the bulletin added; "Retreating' under the blows of our troops, the enemy is leavins behind him artillery, mortars, ammunition and military equipment." The Russians also were advancing in White Russia, where. Red Army forces captured more than 50 towns and cleared the highway between Nevel and Usvyaty in advances up to six miles through strongly-defended terrain.
