The Hope High School Bobcats have a tough night ahead of them Friday when they tangle with the Hot Springs Trojans in the local stadium in a conference contest. While the Bobcats will be playing without the services of two regulars the Trojans are reported at top strength with their star runner and passer, Canada, definitely off the ailing list as demonstrated las' week against North Little Rock. The fleet. Canada, is key man foi the Hot Springs eleven and was a biu factor in the Spa victory over the capital Wildcats. Canada hurls or runs from a spread formation that left North Little Rock dazed to the tune of 38 to 12, last week. So this week the Bobcats have been doing a little spreading and have hopes of breaking up the offensive-minded Trojans. Mistakes, which have cost the Cats many touchdowns in past games, were far and few between last week when they slapped Camden down 25-6. With everything to gain and nothing to lose the locals arc likely to be in there pitching and arc capable of upsetting the dope. Due to "click" anytime the Cats appar ently found the combination agains Camden and really went to town Loss of Gamble and Rogers will be sorely felt but the inexperienccc Cats have shown plenty of fight al season and are expected to giv the visitors a hard battle. first Shopper For Trade _ 'US BEFORE YOU BUY.

SPORTS ROUNDUP •By Hugh S. Fnllertoi, Jr Berlelli Expected to Throw Plenty Passes Saturday By BUCKY O'CONNOR South Bend, Incl., Oct. 28 (/!')— foil might say that Angelo Ber olli, the occurotc aoriallst. wil hrow his own farewell' party Sat relay afternoon. It will be a football party tcutur ng the unbeaten teams of Notre 3amo and Navy, their 17th en- ountcr with some 80,000 to 90,000 guests at Cleveland > Municipal Stadium. And Bertelli, the great Notre 3amc passer, is expected to throw is he never throw before in his hrec years as Irish field general, because in all probability the en- lagcrricnl will be his final colle- [iale game—at least for the duration. He lias been transferred to Parris Island. S. C., for advanced marine training and is scheduled Lo report Nov. 1. Angelo and his colleagues could scarcely find tougher opposition for the passing wizard's grid finale. Ranking third among the nation's top teams, Navy is rich in material. Besides a fine line with plenty of reserves, the Midshipmen have a batch of bucks that wouk be more than welcome by most coaches. Particularly outstanding is Hal Hamberg, a 150-pound mile who conceivably could steal Bertelli's passing show. Last Saturday against Georgia Tech he threw three touchdown pusses and scored another six-pointer. His runs included one for 80 yards. Nevertheless, Notre Dame, with one of the greatest teams in its history and recognized almost unanimously as the country's No. 1 eleven, rates the edge.

Associated Press Soorts Columnist Angott Scores Decision Over Slugger White Hollywood, Oct. 28 — (/?}— Sam Angott is still the lightweight champion, and the last fellow to dispute it today would be Luther (Slugger) White, Baltimore negro, frMEALS TASTE BETTER WHEN YOU SERVE BLUE RIBBON BREAD AT YOUR GROCERS and CITY- BAKERY who got the boxing lesson of his That life last night in 15 rounds. It was one of the most interesting and unusual fights ever held here. As the boys started the fourth round a generator failure plunged the Hollywood baseball park into darkness. It was an hour and seven minutes before electricians repaired the trouble. The crowd sat good - naturedly through the interim 9 without any marked display of displeasure. The boxers retired to their dressing rooms after waiting in their corners for the first half hour, blankets piled over their bathrobes to shut out the cold night air. ' When the fourth round got under way again, 10 seconds had been pared from it. That was the elapsed time from the insland they rushed from their corners and indulged in one exchange before the arcs went out. • Angott was complete master of the situation. He went out in the first round to steal the play from the fast - punching White. He danced away and around the Negro and came back to deliver any number of hard, delayed left and right uppercuts. This tireless smashing had a marked effect on White over a long period of time, and in the fourteenth and fifteenth he seemed oh the verge of being cnocked out. Midway in the fifteenth Sam smashed home a terrific right to the jaw that sent White out of the ring, but the Negro bounded back and continued to take terrific punishment as he wobbled around the ring. Angott received a flat guarantee of $15.000 and a chance to face Bob Montgomery, recognized by the New York Athletic Commission as the titlcholder. White's share was 60 per cent over the first $25,000. The official attendance was 10,007. The gross gate was $35,692 and the net gate $32,588. New York.

The 25th annual edition of "Automobile Facts and Figures" tells us that the United States has 2,137 cities with population between 2,500 and 10,000, where there are no street-car or local bus systems. In these; cities live 11,162,489 people— a population virtually equal to that <«OtoiL*£or.k-stata or Pennsylvania,, completely dependent upon the private car for transport. In Arkansas alone there arc 42 non-street-car and non-bus cities with a total population of 198,772. This means that 81.1 per cent of Arkansas' cities, and 46 per cent of her townfolk, depend on private There is no more powerful argu- nent than this for compulsory conservation of automobiles.

RCAF Cadet Admits Slaying Heiress Wife New York, Oct. 29 — (>P)—Bleary- yed and weary, Wayne Lonergan stumbled up the platform steps at the police lineup today and meekly answered questions preliminary to his arraignment later in homicide court on a charge of slaying his pretty heiress wife, Patricia, in her lavish Beekman Hill apartment. "Wayne, did you make a statement to the district attorney regarding this case?" asked Acting Captain Edward Dillon sternly. South of Dnieper loop, Red Army troops were plunging through the wide steppes of the Southern Ukraine less than GO miles from Perekop, last door of escape open to the Nazi Crimean garrisons, Moscow said. The Russians, advancing at a rate of from 12 to 18 miles a day, would reach the gates of Perekop within a week if that pace is maintained. Capture of the village of Mizhne- Saragozhy, highway junction heart of the steppe country 46 miles west of Melitopol and only 44 miles from the Dnieper river town of Kakhovka, cleared the way for the rapid westward surge. More than 3,000 Germans were killed in the battle for Nizhne- Saragozhy. The Russians found 250 freight cars left behind when the enemy fled the town. At Krivoi Rog, big mining and industrial center northwest of Mel- itopol, a strengthened German garrison was stubbornly resisting massed Russian assaults from three sides, but capture of the city appeared inevitable as the Russian pressure increased. Other Red Army forces surged 35 miles to the northwest of the besieged city to captures'-rMaraanovka, cutting the Snamenka-Nikoiaev railway leding to the Bug river, next German defense line to the west, a Moscow communique reported. In clean-up operations southwest of Dnepropetrovsk, Soviet troops swept into several towns and captured additional stores of German military equipment, On their way to join the forces storming Krivoi Rog, they killed 1,500 Nazis and captured an entire company of 46th German infantry division the war bulletin said. Balki, a village 27 miles from Nikopol, German-held strongpoint in the northern steppe country, crisis — months. the fourth in six was taken by 'Soviet rounding up German columns remnants "Yes Edward I did," answered the strapping 25-year-old Royal Canadian Air Force cadet. "Were you ever in trouble before?" inquired Dillon. "No, sir," answered 'Lonergan. After his brief appearance in police headquarters Lonergan was hurried to District Attorney Frank S. Hogan's office where Hogan announced late yesterday the onetime playboy had confessed killing his wife by striking her with two heavy brass candlesticks and strangling her Sunday. Police have reported finding fingerprints on the candlesticks but there has been no announcement they have been compared with Lonergan's. First indication Lonergan had broken after almost 24 hours incessant questioning came yesterday afternoon when police were dispatched to the East River to grapple for the missing aircraftman's uniform which Lonergan had claimed was stolen from him Saturday night by a soldier he said he had befriended. As he wearily sat on a bench with bowed head awaiting his turn in the lineup, police already had resumed their hunt for the missing garments. Hogun said Lonergan gave as lis reason for the crime his wife's refusal to let him see their 18- rionths - old son, Wayne William Uonergan, who lay asleep in another room in the Lonergan apartment. When he was booked last night le tersely commented "I'm sorry 'or the whole tiling." south of the bend of the Dnieper river. Increasing the pressure of the Crimea, units of Gen, Feodor Tol- bukhin's southern "desert army" were swinging down from Melito- pol to slab at Perekop, northeastern gate of the peninsula less than 60 miles away. Moscow said they were so close on the heels of the fleeing enemy that 65 guns "in fill working order" were picked up at the town of Akinovka, together with other valuable war ear abandoned by the Nazis, Red Army warplanes, now complete masters of the skies over Southern Russia, destroyed more than 300 army trucks which the Germans were using in their flight to the Bug river across the No- gaisk steppes, the Russian com- munique said. The tremendous amount of booty taken by the Red Army troops suggested a breakdown in German transport. The Red Army command has begun a fresh offensive in upper White Russia, 600 miles to the north. Gains of from three to five miles were recorded there, the Moscow war bulletin said. More than 80 towns were liberated from the Germans, including Surazh, 25 miles northeast of Vitebsk, an anchor base on the German defense line west of captured Smo- lensk. The Moscow radio today quoted a Pravda dispatch as saying that "German defenses have cracked all along the front between Meli- topol and the sea of Azov." The Soviet monitor recorded the broadcast. Replying to news conference questions, Mr. Roosevelt said the war labor board's report on coal was in the .lop of his basket of papers but nothing had been done with it yet. The CIO members of the WLB issued a brief statement registering their dissent from the majority decision in the Illinois bituminous coal case, saying: "We dissent on the majority decision of the board due to the fact that WR deeply feel that the joint wage contract should have been approved." It was signed by Van A. Biltner and John Brophy, both former officials of the United Mine Workers. The critical labor situation was highlighted by these develop-ments. 1. The number of idle mine workers exceeded 76,000 early today and the figure was expected to grow hourly. 2. The War Labor Board referred the strikes to the president, making government seizure of the idle mines virtually imperative under the war labor disputes act. Such seizure would immediately make any person who encouraged inter- ruption of production subject ' to criminal prosecution. If the president orders the seizure before Monday, it will give tremendous import to the meeting of United Mine Workers policy committee on that day. 3. The WLB announced its decision in the.Pennsylvania anthracite ininers' wage dispute awarding an increase of 32.2 cents a day under the little steel formula, free tools and equipment estimat- ,cd to be worth 20 to 25 cents a day, and an increase in the annual vacation payment from $20 to $50. The anthracite miners had asked an increase of $2 a day and portal- to portal pay, and an unfavorable reaction to the decision was seen immediately. The most serious impact of the strike was reported from 'Alabama where the Tennessee Coal, Iron Railroad company said a shutdown of its vast ensley steel works was imminent because of a fuel shortage.

Draja Mihai- lovic, denouncing each other in a dispute that independent Balkan advices indicate may have been German inspired. Adding fuel to this fire, 'Tito's communique today asserted his followers had clashed in a sharp action near Bistrica with units of Mihaililovic's army who, the bulletin said, were aided by Italian "Blackshirts" and "Quislings" led by Pro-Nazi Milan Nedic. Nazi uniforms also were reported in this engagement. The communique said units of the 27lh division stormed the enemy - held mountain stronghold of Rogatica, 30 miles east of Sara- jevo, and captured stores of sorely-needed war material, killing 100 .Germans and wounding 120. The Yugoslav communique reported German amphibious forces had attempted a landing on the large Dalmatian island of Brae which faces the port of split. The entire landing force was destroyed, the bulletin stated. German units, however, did land on the Pelyesac peninsula, 100 miles down the coast, and established a bridgehead. West of Zagreb, where the Germans have been pushing offensive operations the past week, all attacks were repulsed and the Partisan bulletin said 120 Germans and Croat Quislings were slain in the bitter fighting. In addition, two armored cars and a large quantity of Nazi war gear was destroyed. Near Benkoyac, in Northern Dalmatia, patriots scored another success when they lulled 330 German, officers and men in an attack on Nazi-held positions. In western Crotia the Partisans were battling German motorized columns, while far to the north, on the Hungarian frontier, Partisans destroyed the railway line between Koprovnica and Gyekenyes on the Hungarian side of the border. Cairo dispatches quoted Balkan advices as indicating that the familiar Nazi formula of divide and conquer had failed to the extent that both Yugoslav factions were battling Field Marshal Erwin Rommel's armies despite their differences.

In the darkness before dawn Wednesday, naval guns of a task force commanded by Rear Adm. Theodore S. Wilkinson poured shells on Mono and Stirling, tiny coral reefs comprising the Treasury group. : Just as daylight appeared, American and New Zealand troops moved off big ships to landing barges and headed for the beaches. Overhead, swarms of planes roamed unchallenged. Warships laid down a smoke screen. Rain squalls added a natural curtain. Mortar fire greeted first arrivals. These weapons were silenced quickly. Then the Japanese broke and fled into the hills. "It was a splendid Navy Day show," Admiral Wilkinson told all lands. Once mopping up is completed, heavily-wooded Mono and the tiny plantation isle of Stirling provide Admiral Halsey with positions close to the Shortlands, potential stepping stones for an invasion of Bougainville. The enemy's airfields on southern Bougainville already have been cratered into present uselessness. "" -The operations unfolded precisely as planned, a spokesman for Admiral Halsey said, and Allied casualties were light. Radio Tokyo, in making the first announcement of the Mono landing, said Japanese planes sank an Allied warship but the reports from Halsey's headquarters pointedly referred to no air opposition. Today's communique reported the shooting down of between 12 and 18 enemy planes in the Finsch- hafen, New Guinea area, the probable aerial destruction of a Japanese destroyer and possible damage of two others in the New Britain-New Ireland sector.

Italian War Prisoners to Be Worked Washington, Oct. 29 (IP)— Italian war prisoners who have been in custody at least six .months and "who have shown by their demeanor that they can be trusted" will be allowed to do work outside of prison camps without guards. . In making this announcement today, the War Department said th'e new system for prisoners. will be instituted gradually, with its operation "closely supervised by the military authorities." The department said "no prisoners will be paroled; that is, released into the custody of individuals who would assume full time responsibility for them.

The plan is prepared, the army added, "to effect a saving of man power, through reduction in the number of guards at present required to watch over prisoners." The system has not yet been placed in operation because of the comparatively small number of Italian prisoners who have been under War Department supervision for the required six months.
