Pine Bluff's Jake Baldwin scored the first Zebra touchdown on a 26- yard reverse and thereby maintained his narrow margin over El Dorado's Ray Parks in the Arkansas High School Conference scoring race. Parks scored twice in El Dorado's 00-0 rout of the heloless Fordyce Redbugs. Hot Springs' Trojans continued their winning ways by running over Hopc/s Bobacats, 32-7 and Jonesboro whipped Blytheville, 26-0. Fort Smith took on a tough Muskogee, Okla., outfit and barely outlasted the Sooner state eleven, 7-6.

Grid Games Overshadowed by Irish, Navy New York, Oct. 29 — ({?)— Overshadowed by the tussle between the unbeaten "powerhouse" teams of Navy and Notre Dame at Cleveland tomorrow are a half dozen or so football games that should provide better-than-fair entertainment for the fans. The Navy-Notre Dame tea party, of course, is enough to dim out almost any kind of an opposing attraction. Frank Leahy's Irish, in the course of running up big scores at the expense of five "major" rivals, have won the weekly nomination as No. 1 team of the nation so often ihey're aboul ready to take permanent possession of it. Navy hasn't been quite so impressive, but it hasn't been beaten, either. The Midshipmen had a close call against Penn State, when several regulars were absent, and they had to work hard to beat Georgia Tech. However, they have a big, powerful line and in .Hal Hamberg and Hillis Hume a couple of backs that won't yield much to Notre Dame's Angelo Bertelli. Running this tilt a close second is the meeting of two eastern leaders, Army's "T" formation scoring machine and Pennsylvania, which also has run up some big scores but is supposed to have fewer good reserves than Army. This one likely will draw 70,000 fans to Penn's Franklin Field. Other outstanding games in the midwest inluce Indiana- Ohio State putting the sensational Hun- chy Hoernschemeyer against Dean' Sensanbaugher, Minnesota- North- Western, Michigan-Illinois and Purdue-Wisconsin. The eastern program, bigger than in the past few weeks when many colleges recessed football for navy examinations, features Ihe resumption of an old rivalry between Dartmoulh and Yale. Dartmouth, having lost several early- season stars, isn't sure of a walkover. Other games are Brown- Princeton, Colgate-Holy Cross and Columbia-Cornell. Duke and Georgia Tech, probably the South's strongest teams this year, clash in a sectional head- liher at Atlanta. Duke's record is marred only by a one-poinl loss lo Navy and Tech, beaten by a bigger score, also gave the Middies a tussle. In the Southwest, Texas, 'leader in conference competition, faces a Southern Methodist team that hasn't been particularly effective, Texas A. and M., still a conlender despite last week's scoreless tie with Norlh Texas Aggies, goes after weak Arkansas and Ihe big independent, Tulsa and Soulhwest- ern, run head-on into each other. Southwestern, though badly beaten last week by Southwestern Louisiana Institule, slill figures to give Tulsa's civilians an argument. Southern California, starling Ihe second half of the Pacific Coast round robin, risks its unbeaten record against a California team which it defeated 7-0 in the first meeting. New York, Oct. 30 (#)— Story out of Washington — via Walter McCallum, car-to-the-ground Evening Star scribe — is that Los Angeles interests arc offering $100,000 for the National Foolball League playoff Dec. 19 wilh Ihe idea of slaging it in Ihe Rose Bowl. . . . . Since Ihe Redskins are likely to be Ihe Eastern playoff team, Ihe report weight may carry considerable Alma Stranger Before last week's Notre Dame- Illinois game a sports writer asked Julius Rykovich, Notre Dame halfback from Illinois "How does it feel to play against your former teammales?" "I don'I know," replied Julius. "The only one on the Illinois team I know is Lester Joop, who was on the freshman team wilh me last year." Scrap Collection The Rev. Arnold Fenlon, who taught Yale's Scooter Scussel to boot a football 70 yards or so says lhat when Ray first started at the U. of Connecticut he "hooked the ball like a heifer side-kicking a harsh milker.' When St. Mary's High school of Rutherford, N. J., entertains Cardinal Hayes of New York tomorrow, the coaches will be otherwise engaged. St. Mary's is coached by Bob Troco- lar and Cardinal Hayes by Ward Cuff, both of the Giants. Today's Guest Star John P.

Canada Big Star As Trojans Take Bobcats 32-7 Bud Canada, living up to advance reports, scored 5 touchdowns here last night to lead the Hot Springs Trojans to a 32-7 victory over the Hope Bobcats in a conference contest. The fleet back was practically the whole show for the visitors and broke loose on touchdown runs ranging from 18 to 67 yards. The Bobcats, sparked by Wells, Ross and Bell, fought hard all the way but were overpowered by the heavier Trojans. The Cats literally played the visitors off their feet the first period, and reached pay- dirt first. A recovered fumble gave the Cats the ball on own 42-yard line and on the first play Jack Bell cut off tackle, reversed his field, and sidestepped his way into the clear for 58 yards and touchdown for the most spectacular run of the game. Ross took a pass from Bell to put the Cat ahead 7-0. The Trojans came to life midway in the second period and from then on il was Iheir ball game. Canada took a Cal .punt on his own 30 and was downed in his tracks. A line play netted 3 and on the next play the flashy Trojan broke loose for 67 yards and paydirl. Kick for extra point failed leaving the Cats ahead 7-6. Working the ball from their own 14 to Ihe 48, Canada again broke loose for 52 yards lo score. Slan- difcr's pick was good pulling Ihe visitors ahead 13-7. Canada, shortl> after, intercepted a Hope pass on Ihe Bobcat 46 and Iwislcd his way down lo Ihe 18. On Ihe nexl play he went over pulling Ihe Trojans in Ihe lead 19-7. Canada scored twice In the sec ond half. He stepped off 30 yards in the 3rd period to score after taking a punt from the Bobcal 5 yard line. The last tally resulted from a pass interception on the Hot Springs 22 with Canada charg ing back to the Hope 45. Canada plunged his way dosvn to the Cat 18 where the Hope line sliffened for two plays. The Cats drew a 15 yard penalty pulling Ihe ball on the 1-yard line where Canada wen over. Standifcr's ki(5k was good. Hope seriously Ihrealcned In the final period. Standing On his own 46 Wells fired a 33-yard pass t< Cobb who fumbled bul finally re covered on Ihe Trojan 22. On th next play Wells' pass was inter cepled ending Ihe threat. The smaller Bobcats looked gooc even in defeat. They chilled th visitors for Ihe firsl 15 minules o play and Hoi Springs did nol pul a firsl stringer until the fading minules. After Bell left Ihe game in Ihe second period with a leg injury Wells ably took over and rolled up much yardage scooting through the big Trojan line. He got good assistance from Cobb, Kennedy and Rookcr. Ross was outstanding in Ihc line, and Thomas played his usual good game aj. cenler. The Trojans made 10 firsl downs to Hope's 5; H.S. passed 9 times, completed 2, had one intercepted; Hope passed 7, completed 2 and had 3 intercepted. H. S. drew 7 penalties for 45 yards, Hope drew 3 for 35 yards. Porkers Hop* to Upsel Texas A. AM, Fayottevlllc, Oct. 30 (/I 1 ) Two . outhful Southwest Conference elevens, Texas A.

Washington By JACK STINNETT Washington — Your Capital in Wartime: If there's any truth in rumor, there soon will .be a shortage in cigarets. The "rumor" comes from the Department of Commerce, where they say quite frankly that a shade under 800,000,000 pounds of tobacco a year are needed to produce the 300 billion cigarcls consumed a year in the United Stales. Regardless of this demand, only a few more than 460,000,000 pounds are being allotted to the manufacturers for cigarct production. They arc drawing on 1944 and 1945 supplies to bridge the presenl year's gap. Unless something is done about it. we will be short of ciga rets within six lo cighl months and completely out of surplus stocks by the spring of 1945. More important is the declaration in high office of Defense Transportation circles that before this winter is over there will be complete breakdown in truck transportation. ODT officials lay this complica. ion right in the lap of WPB, claim ng that the latter has stumbled ver so many priorities and so orth that the truck production pro ram has been completely bogged lown in red tape. ODT already has Is defense prepared lo go before congressional commiltees. What ts wilncsses will say will be at cast a nine-days' sensation. Off-thc-record estimates here arc hat the Nazis have about 300,000 men slowing up the advance up the talian bool. If that is true and other estimates arc true, we have Says Women to Have Voice ( in Peace By JO THOMPSON Washington, Oct. 30 —(/I 1 )— The women of the United Nations want*- • — and will insist upon — n voice In the making of the postwar world, women members of Congress agreed in concert today. "Not one woman got us into this mess," said Rep. Clare Bootho(, ; Luce (R-Conn), "but mothers who think in terms of the next generation, those women who have had a hand in war industry mid those Interested in government, will "demand a voice in shaping the posty, war world." Mrs. Luce observed in an interview that Madame Chiang Kill Shck "will have a place at the peace table, if not actually, surely in spirit." The Russian women, who lutveO played a major role in their country's defense, will have.a powerful influence over the 'peace conference, says Rep. Bolton fR-Ohio). Eleanor Roosevelt will certainly be there, if only .in a reporloHulf > capacity, Mrs. Luce added. All the congrcsswomcn, stress, however, that women must earn he right to be represented, by lak- ng more interest in governmental affairs. Mrs. Bolton suggested that thcO fields of education and health were ideal vehicles for women participation. The congresswomcn also point to the nurses, WAVEs, WACs and SPARs, who have a hand in the/-\ war effort and will expect to have"" a voice in the peace. "Women, generally are against war, much more so than men because of their inclination to compromise," Mrs. Luce commented. They think of their sons and chil-O drcn and the next generation more than men do." NEW YORK STOCKS New York, Oct. 30 —(/P)— The stock market today stepped out of October at just about where it emerged from September and, while rails and scattered specialties attracted bidders, many leaders displayed mild irregularity in the brief proceedings. Earnings and dividends, persistent tax hopes, further good war news and optimism over the Moscow conferences served as the main props for bullish sentiment. On the other side of the ledger, however, there was continued market apprehension regarding the coal labor crisis. Dealings generally were slow from the opening on although six- able blocks of low-priced issues— the two-hour volume at around 337,630 shares. Fractional lips and downs were pretty evenly divided near the close. Deaths Last Night By The Associated Press Charles A. Donnel Chicago Charles A.

Lightning causes about 10 per tent of farm fires in the United States and about 12 ppr cent of all forest fires. hem outnumbered nan two to one. slightly less The same pcrccnlage or grealcr may apply to the Russian front But nowhere yet has there been any report thai military observers lerc accept that the Nazis are being routed. Over in the War Department they'll tell you that the tfazis on both fronts are doing a whale of a job of backing out. Political observers here are saying thai there arc only two men n the Uniled States who can deal with Russia and Joseph Stalin. No. 1 is President Roosevelt and No. 2, Wendell Willkie. The latter has already proved his standing with Stalin fend it's tops. The president has yet to make his mark. That's one reason why the much talked of Roosevelt-Churchill-Stalin conference is easily one of Ihe biggest stories of our time. However, political sideliners are definitely of one mind: Too much importance shouldn't be attached to the session now going on in, Moscow between foreign secretaries and our own Secretary of Slate Hull. This, they say, is just the opening wedge. The real picture will shape up when Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill put their heads together.

LOFTUS Washington, Nov. 1 (IP)— With coal production near collapse, district leaders of the United Mine Workers gathered for a crucial policy meeting today at which they face the choice of ordering a return to work of provoking "decisive action" by President Roosevelt. Although UMW President John L. Lewis gave no hint of his plans, the outlook favored a back to work order by the policy committee. But how soon and to what extent such an order would be obeyed was more uncertain. The best possible results could not mean normal production before Wednesday, and government officials are not that optimistic. They arc fearful of wildcat or unauthorized stoppages which already have proved costly to the nation's steel production schedule. Fuel administration orders controlling the distribution of coal for loinc use indicated prcpardncss for any eventuality, while the War Production Board revived talk of a nationwide cut in electric power to conserve coal. Delivery of anthracite already has been barred to any domestic consumer having more than ten days' supply. The fuels administration also has forbidden retail delivery of more than half of a ton to a customer. Alabama's mines, which feed the fires ol! major steel production plants, were hit earliest and hardest in this fourth coal crisis in six months. Saturday, only 1,600 of the state's 22,000 miners were on the job.

The advance columns .went around the Nazi-held bastion 'from the .north and apparently had rushed on beyond the isthumus that forms the only land escape route out of the peninsula. The large German force in the peninsula now can escape only by sea or air — a slender hope for so many troops. The strong Russian Black Sea fleet and Soviet planes are expected to crush any attempt at escape. The Red drive across the plains from Melitopol to the Crimea exit covered over 100 miles in less than 9 days — a phenomenal average of about 12 miles per- day. The wind-up of the great battle on the plains was terminating in a slaughter. The Nazis are being caught by a fast moving Spearhead which left them easy prey for the on-coming infantry and armored forces. The northern arm of the Red Army thrust from Melitopol has reached the lower reaches of the Dnieper river at a point due south of Krivoi Rog inside the bend ol the river, which meant that the —Europe escape corridor from the Dnieper bend had been slashed to less than 10 miles. An advance of 20 miles by either .he Soviet troops fighting at Krivoi log or the Red Army to the south at the lower Dnieper would cul .he last German rail line from the oig bend. A simultaneous gain o: 20 miles by both forces would complete the Russian campaign to slice off the big bend and trap the huge Nazi army in it. The battle of the Nogaisk steppes' meanwhile appears slated to go down in history as one of the mos disastrous defeats ever suffered by the German army. The Russians have seized more than two-thirds of the plain and were smashing across above th Crimea toward Kherson at th mouth of the Dnieper river. Moscow said thousands of Naz stragglers had been left behind by the onrushing Red spearheads. The retreating Germans in ' th Crimea were said to be leaving great quantities of supplies am equipment as they fell back befor the Soviet offensive.

A threat to quit sooner if the mines were turned back lo private ownership was not carried out.

State Doctors Drop Plan to Aid Servicemen Lillle Rock, Nov. 1 (/P)— The Arkansas Medical Society, today ceased participating as an organization in the federally financed program of obstetrical care for enlisted mc»'s wives but left the way open for its members to continue with the work as individuals. The Stale Board of Health which has' directed -'the |:prdgi;am |in Arkansas abandoned it, effective last midnight, at the society's 1 request. Dr. W. R.

HAROLD OLIVER Washington, Nov. 1 —(IP)— Pres- dent Roosevelt in an exhaustive review of the world food situation urged Congress today to continue and increase the administration's £800,000,000 food price subsidy program to assure an adequate supply and prevent a "serious and dangerous cycle" of inflation. To a legislature which has been sharply critical of federal subsidies and which has leaned rather toward higher farm prices to encourage greater production for war, the chief executive sent the longest special message of his nearly 11 years in the White House — 10,000 words. He had checked and rechecked it many times and spent almost a month writing it. Shorn of its historical data, the message assured the American people that there will be "enough food to go around," specifically nailed reports of a "meat famine" this winter, and declared the price support program is proving reasonably successful in these two objectives: Increasing production, and maintaining fair food prices for the con sumer. "I am convinced," the chief executive said, "that to abandon our present policy would increase the cost of living, bring about demands for increased wages which would then be justifiable, and might well start a serious and dangerous cycle of inflation — without any net benefit to anyone." He said some people say a little inflation will not hurt anyone, adding: "They are like the .man who takes 'the first shot of opium for the sensation he thinks it will give him. He likes it, although he swears that he will not make it a habit. Soon he is taking two — and then more and more — and then he loses all control of himself. "Inflation is like that. A little leads to more. I am unalterably opposed to taking the first shot by congressional, or by any other action. The nation cannot afford to We have chil- "an inflation ourse," he continued, would have o be ready to accept responsibil- ;y for the results. "We have so far been following tried path," he asserted, "and re getting along fairly well. This is 10 time to start wandering into ar intried field of uncontrolled and uncontrollable prices and wages.' The president did not say how nuch new money the government vould need for price supports . in he unprecedented production goa ear of 1944, but he said it would oe more than the $800,000,000 usea his year because farmers mus lave some inducement to mee his goal while consumer charges ire being kept down. • He renewed his request to extent the life of the Commodity Credi (Continued on Page Three) Moscow Parley of Top Nations Ends Successful!

This declaration was signed by the big four of the United Nations at the Moscow conference attended by Secretary of State Hull, Foreign Minister Anthony Eden of Britain and Foreign Commissar Vyacheslav Molotov of Russia. It was made public simultaneously today in Washington, London and Moscow.

H. Friend, Vice-President of the International Paper Co., and general manager of operations for the Southern Kraft Division, stressed the fact that this nation faces a shortage of some 3,000,000 cords of pulpwood which is desperately needed now for ammunition containers, food containers, rayon, smokeless powder and print paper. Maximum cash benefits for the farmer can be had, it was pointed out by Mr. Friend, where the farmer cuts his own pulpwood and hauls it himself to the various loading points or the .rail sidings into the mill yards where the haul does not cover too great a distance. If everyone of the more than 3,800,000 farmers in the 27 pulpwood producing states would devote only 30 extra hours during the remaining months of 1943 to cutting pulpwood, the alarming shortage of pulpwood would be overcome, it was stated. The solution to the problem rests with those on the farms and in the woods of our puip wood producing areas. Mr. Friend empnasized the fact that the average pulpwood tree yields enough nitro-ceUulose to provide smokeless powder for thirty- five 105 mm. shells or 7,500 rounds of ammunition for a Garand rifle. Your cord of pulpwood will make enough smokeless powder to fire two rounds in a 16-inch naval gun. Parts for Army and Navy planes are shipped in paper containers made from trees. Resin treated wood pulp is molded under pressure into airplane parts. Greater quantities of pulpwood misses which damaged A large barge jammed with § panese and an escorting vessefl (probably a heavily-armed anti^ aircraft barge) were sun north o|| Finschhafen, New Guinea, are necessary for making rayon for parachutes; medical dressings for treating sick and wounded sol diers and sailors; blueprint papei for the planning of submarines ships and planes; paper for shell cases; and a thousand other new and old wartime uses, Listing a few pointers on how to cut pulpwood, Mr. Friend urged farmers to leave younger trees of better quality and a sufficient number to make a good stand; cut low stumps and cut tree top where it measures four inches through. Farmers were advised not to strip the woods as clear cutting or heavy destructive cutting destroys the stand. Careful selection of the trees is important, it was brought out. This means faster growth, frequent future cuttings, better trees and more money over the years. The paper company official advised farmers and woodsmen to cut or thin timber now while prices are high and pulpwood badly needed. A simple procedure is to estimate how many cords you can cut and then contact the local buyer In your county, it was stilted.
