PineTluff Favored to Take Wildcats Little Rock, Oct. 29 (d'j— It's the Pine Bluff Zebras against their old jinx learn, the North Litllp Rock Wildcats, in the feature attraction on the Arkansas High school conference football schedule tonight. Ordinarily a team that has iosl two of its five conference games und had 82 points scored against it wouldn't stand much of a show against an unbeaten outfit like the Zebras but for lhe Wildcats lhe Pine Bluff contest is something different. North Little Rock chilled Pine man was there, all right, but so many sideline fans crowded onto the edge of the field to watch the run that the missing player was lost in the throng.

Cleaning The Cuff Thc Orange Bowl already is two- thirds sold out for the New Year Bobcats, Trojans to Battle H Out Here Tonight Tonight at 8 o'clock the Hope Bobcats meet a strong band of Hot Springs Trojans in a conference contest at the local stadium. The game promises to be one of stiff est of the season tor the Bob- eats as the visitors boast one of the strongest squads in the state. However, tough battles arc old stuff to the Cats who have gone up against 6 of the strongest teams in the state. After four straight losses the locals tied Nashville and licked Carnden indicating they, are improving steadily. The loss of two regulars, guard Gamble and halfback Rogers, will weaken the team considerably. Replacements for the two lost .men have seen much action and Coach Hammons believes the boys will click. In Canada the Trojans have all- slate material. The youngster is the main cog offensively and can run and pass effectively. A large crowd is expected. Coach Mammons appealed today ' „,„ wwiv* uwi.

This former French zone of influence points into the Gulf of Tonkin toward Japanese-occupied Hainan. Other Mitchells blasted two enemy freighters in thc same area, sinking one and damaging thc other. In Southwest China's Yunnan province, a major Japanese base at Mangshih on the Burma road was hit with four tops of bombs from American Liberators. The Japanese retaliated with a light raid on an Allied airdrome in Southwest China, causing "minor damage." Reports today told of the Americans landing unopposed down on lhe southwestern side of Choiseul; of a trap closing around Japanese soldiers on invaded Treasury (Mono) Island; and of hundreds of bombers and fighters dropping rcc- 01 d tonnages of explosives on enemy runways and airdrome in- slallalions without any interference of Japan's badly crippled South Pacific air force. The invasion of Choiseul, flank- I ing'the last big Nipponese base of Bougainville now barring the way to Rabaul; opened Thursday at the village of Voza, a slaging base for i enemy barges.

This should be a good lime to explain what the argumcnl is about. President Roosevelt proposed the food price subsidy program to hold down the cosl of living during wartime. Farmers would gel addilional money for their products, bul not through the customary practice of marking -up prices. Why, then, should there be such a Iremcndous opposilion to the price subsidy or "rollback" program? Edward A. O'Neal, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, puls Agricullure's case forcefully; "Thc administration and organized labor undoubtedly will muster all of their forces to try and eliminate thc prohibi- lions against consumer subsidies and it is therefore vitally necessary that congress hear from 'the country. "There is absolulcly no jusli- ficalion for subsidizing consumer grocery bills out of borrowed money at a time when consumers are receiving lhe highcsl incomes in history. It is most unjust lo saddle Ihis burden on our boys at the front . lo pay when they return from the war. "We are not asking for lhe elimination of price control. All we arc asking is nn adjustment of price ceilings to cover thc ; increased cosls of wartime food production and to prevent War ?' is fi6nrt hion6/'being used-to help* defray grocery bills. K "Subsidies plainly lead to inflation. The prohibition of subsidies will help check inflation." Mr. O'Neal's contention is sound. If labor gets increased income through higher wages, without thc stigma of being specially subsidized, Ihcn Agriculluro is enlitled to equal treatment—with income based on higher prices, not on money borrowed directly from the sale of War Bonds. Here wc are looking beyond the immediate present to how mailers will stand after thc war. It will nol go well with lhe American public if Agriculture permits lhe record lo show that the farmers gobbled billions of borrowed money while wage-earners ^at by sancli- moniously and look even more bil- lions—bul safeguarded by lhe technical difference between wages earned and subsidies borrowed. When America slarts looking for a goat when pay-day for ail these bonds comes due Agriculture does not want lo be left ullerly defenseless by the record. Farmers have no alternative, therefore, bul lo fighl lhe food price subsidy program to thc-last ditch. AMG Authority Very Limited Inside Italy BY WES GALLAGHER Bari, Italy, Oct. 29 —(/P)—Allied authorities on the armistice commission, who lack authority to enforce their requests to Prime Minister Pietro Badoglio and King Vittorio Emanuele, have won a ten-day battle to obtain the release of editors of anti - Fascist newspapers—men arrested under laws laid down by former Premier Mussolini. Because this area is under the direct control of the Italian government as contrasted with the batlle area which is under Allied military government (AMG), Allied authorities here can only request the government to release jailed men or remove certain officials. "The trouble is that sometimes when we get one Fascist official removed, a worse one is appointed in his place," one American on the mission explained. Badoglio and the king have said Fascism is ended but they apparently have taken no steps to repeal the Fascist laws by which Mussolini kept himself in power. Under these laws anyone can be arrested without a formal charge. When Italy surrendered and Badoglio called an end to Fascism, the underground movements of Bari. such as communists, liberals and action parties, came to the surface and tried to hold meetings. They were stopped by the police and local government officials. They tried to obtain space in the government newspaper but were refused. • i Guerrillas Cross Into Hungary in Fight With Nazis London, Oct. 30 (/P) — Audacious Yugoslav guerrillas crossed the Hungarian fronlier loday in widening bailies againsl German and satellite troops, and some units now arc fighting on Hungarian ter- rilory, a communique broadcast by lhe Yugoslav Army of Liberalion announced. The crossing was made from Za- goryc province, norlh of Zagreb. Exlensive operations along the Dalmatian coast, in which a German column was defeated after 10 hours of fierce fighting, also was reported in lhe communique from Gen. Josip Broz (Tilo). Twenty Allied planes assisted in the Dalmatian operations, bombing enemy columns near Slon, Mel- kovic, Split, and other localities near Klin, 45 miles north of Split, the bulletin continued. Tito's communique gave these details of other actions: Wcst\of Zagreb, Partisan bands were holding Iheir .own againsl fierce attacks by German troops in thc Zhumberak area. Southeast of Zagreb troops of lhe Kozaraj brigade dcslroyed a ten- mile slrclch ot railway and cap- lured lhe towns of Biskovac, Omorsra and Bistrica. On northwest Bosnia other Parli- san unils destroyed, an enemy bat- lalion, caplured a radio slalion and deslroyed a 20-car mililary train. Slill other Partisan units smashed a German column near Lazarevac, 35 miles south of Belgrade. The Tito communique said thai Gen. Djukanovic, Chetnik loader fighting on the side of the Germans in Montenegro and who was captured a few days ago, died of wounds. 'Germany's 'harried" Yugoslav" divisions were reported lo be facing a new Adriatic threat with lhe formation in Northeast Italy of an army of 30,000 experienced Italian fighters whose arms arc supplied by Yugoslav Partisans. Unils of this force already have fought a bloody 24-hour batlle with Nazi troops at Verona, a dispatch to the Swiss newspaper Nachrich- len said. Afler bolh sides had suffered many dead and wounded, lhe Ilalians were said lo have relreal- ed lo lhe mountains in the face of German reinforcemenls rushed from Venice, Milan and Turin. The dispalch, dated at the Italian frontier, said the new army was formed in Venczia province which borders on Yugoslavia and Austria. It added thai Nazi supply lines throughout the region were being chopped up conslanlly. The Nazis' communication lines within Yugoslavia suffered a heavy blow yesterday. Both the forces of Gen. Tilo and Gen, Draja Mihailo- vic announced that they had cul thc main railway above and below the capital of Belgrade. Milhailovic's men severed the section leading from Belgrade to Salonika, the Yugoslav information office in Cairo reported, while Tito's Partisans said they smashed the railway at 130 places along a 40-mile stretch between Belgrade and Zagreb. The Germans were said to have increased their Balkan forces to 30 divisions in an atlempl lo crush lhe Yugoslavs as well as lo be prepared for any Allied invasion thrust. ARKANSAN PROMOTED Washington, Oct. 30 — (/P)— The War Department announced today the temporary promotion of James Edward McClelland, Pine Bluff, from first lieutenant to captain. British Storm, Take Strategic Town in Italy —Europt by NOLAIMD NORGAARD Allied Headquarters, Algiers Oct. 30 (/Pj—British troops of the Fifth Army storming across the Regia canal in a three-mile plunge have occupied the seaside town of Mondragone to ram squarely against lofty Mount Massico, western anchor of the new German line in Italy, it was announced today. Farther inland, American forces developed a flanking threat against Mount Massico, capturing Pietra- viarano which dominates both tuppe the main Capua-Rome highway. ' Simultaneously, the British Eighth army to the east forged ahead to lake Montemitro, on the lower bank of the Trigno river 14 miles inland from Ihcir bridgehead in thc San Salvo Area, where the heaviest fighting on the Italian front still raged. Some 15 towns in all fell to the Allied advance, hindered by heavy rains and mud in all sectors. Mule transport had to be substituted for motor vehicles in some mountainous localities. Thc British sprang from trenches and foxholes along the southern banks of thc Regia canal to take Mondragone. They had been held to that line, paralleling the lower slopes of Massico ridge. Mondragone was deserted, and an Allied officer said the town had become valueless to the Germans, who would make their really important stands from the ridge itself. Several bridgeheads forced across the canal all along the line remained under fire of long-range German guns. American troops drave. forward four miles to capture Pietravairano, 15 1-2 miles north of Capua and five miles southwest of Raviscanina. Flying Fortresses ranged far north of the bailie line to blast thc port of Genoa in a heavy raid. Tjie big formation of bombers blasted the Ansaldo steelworks, freight yards and other industrial targets, it was announced. In the Adriatic, American dive- bombers swooped down on two merchant ships, scoring hits on both. Mondragone had been regarded as the westcrnmosl anchor of the German line, but apparently the Nazis decided to fasten the end of the line on high grounds above it rather than in lhe village ilself. Genoa was bombed preciously by England-based planes, but this was the first raid on Italy's major seaport and important rail junction by aircraft based in the Med- itcrrnnean area. The Forlresses went over lhe rail yards in Iwo waves, blasting them from end to end with high explosives and scoring many direct hits, especially on concentrations of trains in the center and I west side of the yards. Some bombs fell on the docks and buildings adjoining the yards. Anti-aircraft fire was heavy, but only one enemy fighter was seen and it did not attack. With the industrial seclions of Turin and Milan already largely knocked out by heavy bombing, Genoa represented the most im- porlanl rear area target in Italy. The raid should prove a serious blow to German efforts to keep Northern Italy's industries in operation The Mississippi River carries 113,000,000 tons of dissolved rock material to the sea in a year.

Winning Fight to Break Jap Supply Lines By HAMILTON W. FARON {Washington, Oct. 30 (/P)— American forces have gained the upper hand in the batlle of thrines in lhe Pacific- and' -in -lite- Atlantic "where" the fighl has been to drive off Nazi u-boats. This flat conclusion was supported today in two stalements by Sec- relary of the Navy Knox: 1. — The war against Nazi raiders in the Atlantic has been successful to the point where planned construction of 427 additional antisubmarine vessels can be cancelled. 2. "The campaign against the Japanese merchant fleet is proceeding at full speed and with steadily increasing forces." Knox's announcement of increasing activities against Japanese supply lines serving their scattered bases in the Pacific was a verbal comment in discussing a communi- que which reported sinking of 10 Japanese ships and damaging of four others. These brought to 474 the number of Japanese vessels sunk, probably sunk or damaged by American submarines which dared to operate even in harbors of Japan itself. At the same lime Knox lold of cancellation of plans for construction of 305 destroyer escorts — small bul hard-hitting anti-submarine craft; sixty 180-foot escorts originally designed as minesweepers; fifty 173-foot patrol craft — "the steel hulled craft which have proved so useful;" and twelve 110- foot subchasers with wooden hulls. An additional 75 small craft in the blue-print stage have been dropped from the construction program. The cancellations, he said, were ordered because improved conditions in lhe Atlanlic, where losses of merchanl vessels to Nazi-subs have been at a minimum for the pasl month, and the increasing need for more amphibious craft. Knox did not amplify his references to the needs for more of the amphibious craft — landing boals of all types — which are used in invasion of enemy held shores. Seeks Change in Disposal System Washington, Oct. 30 (#) — A change in regulations* governing sale of surplus construction terials at »rmy arsenals to ma- preclude "any possibility of wasle" was urged loday by Senator Hattic W. Caraway (D-Ark). She advocated the revision after receiving an army engineers report that surplus construction materials at the Pine Bluff, Ark., arsenal had been sold "in accordance with existing regulations." Similar lellers from Maj. Gen. Thomas M. Robins, acling chief of army engineers, were received yeslerday by bolh Senator Caraway and Representative Norrell (D-Ark), who have been urging an investigation of charges published by the Arkansas Gazette, Little Rock, that junk dealers acquired quantities of materials from the arsenal at only a fraction of iheir value.

What They Needed Was More Timing With the Second Army in Tennessee —(/P)— While an engineering unit was throwing a pontoon bridge across the Cumberland river an amphibious jeep sank on the upstream side of it. The engineers called the coast guard and finished the bridge while the guards salvaged the jeep. Ten minutes later the engineers id to tear out a section of the „ „.._ r -,. w « vv , wwo< . uw saw , pontoon bridge to let the coast with Red Army units digging in 25 guards go back downstream. miles northwest of that enemy tiple drive to complete the entrap ment of German forces in the Dnieper bend. Two other Red Army forpes at the. same time were surging west and south of Melitopol to seal off the German positions in the Crimean peninsula. One, paced by squadrons of hard-riding Cossack cavalrymen and- tank units, smashed through 80 towns-to take Bolshoi Utyyug, 45 miles from:the northeaslern corner of the Crimea, while the second captured ...Tqga- yevka, less than 50 miles from Perekop, which bottlenecks the escape corridor at the northwestern edge of the peninsula. Gains of fifteen miles were reported in this sector by the Russian communique, with the demoralized enemy abandoning additional huge stores of military equipment. ..-.,.. Two prongs of the .triple threat to Nikopol were led by Gen. Feodor Tolbukhin and Gen. Rodion'Y, Malinovsky. The former cfacke'd" a wide German "defense-in-depth" line in lhe Balki-Malaya-Byelozer- ka salient, the Moscow bulletin said, and battled its way through the steppe lowns of Malaya-Balgov- eschenka and 'Bolshoi-Vyelozerka, west and southwest qf Nikopol, chief manganese-producing center in Russia. Maolinovsky, operating inside the Dnieper bend 30 miles southwest of Dnepropetrovsk, slashed ahead six miles to invest Alexandrovka, 42 miles north of Nikopol. More than 1,600 Germans were killed in this action in which 26 towns were liberated. The third Ihreat to Nikopol was revealed by the Berlin radio, which said strong Russian forces were plunging across the Dnieper river just below Zaporozhe, with the evident intention of joining Tolbuk- hin's corps, or driving down the west bank of the river to strike Nikopol from the east. The Moscow bulletin did. not mention this new thrust. Krivoi Rog, Ukrainian iron center 50 miles northwest of Nikopol, was still holding out against fierce Red Army assaults, and the reinforced German garrison was reportedly slaging heavy lank and infantry counterattacks against the besiegers to gain time for battered remnants of the German fortes to escape to the west across the No- gaisk steppes. Russian land advances were covered by swarms of Soviet warplanes, which bombed at will enemy troop and transport targets. Action on the White Russian front in the vicinity of Vitebsk had tapered off to "engagements of local importance," Moscow said, with Red Army i " miles northwest stronghold. •**m * «•*!
