By DeWITT MacKENZlE Associated Press War Analyst Japanese militarists (the rea rulers of Nippon) are said by com petent observers in Ihe Orienl to recognize that they will lose this \vjr but are hoping to secure a lib eral peace and meantime to creali an Asiatic bloc of countris which they can lead against the whit races twenty-five years hence That sounds fantastic, but it isn't. It fils in wilh Ihe signs of Ihe limes, and represents a menace even more deadly lhan Prussian mililarism, because it's calculated to pit" the East against Ihe West a racial conflict. My own observations in the East have convinced me of lhal. There's real danger of Ihe formation of an Asiatic bloc. The Japs are working the "big brother" game rather smartly in spots, as witness Burma and Thailand (Siam) which actually are fighting for Ihe Mikado. Fresh word of this trend has been brought out of a Jap internment camp in the Philippines by TJaymond P. Cronin, who was chief of the Associated Press bureau in ' Manila when the Nipponese invaded the island. Cronin is on the exchange ship Gripsholm which has Span Completed Across Italian River AAA Program for Making Dairy Feed Payments Is Explained Completed this heavy pontoon bridge became the main span for Rome-bound Fifth Army troops on the central sector of the Volturno river front. A crane is being taken across to prepare a tank land- ink space on the opposite shpre. To obtain pictures of this U. S.

P. correspondent says his informants express the belief thai Jap mililary men in Ihe field are attempting to sow the seeds of brotherhood among the Asialic races in preparation for the nexi war. A similar report comes frprr another AP correspondent, Russell i Brines, who also in on the Grip sholm after nearly two years in lernment in Shanghai and Manila Brines reports the Jap militar •isls are conducing an extensive propaganda campaign among Ihei people lo sell the idea of proleclinj Asia against Brilish-American "im perialism."'A lot of this "imperial istic" talk sticks, too, for I found i there myself.

NEW YORK COTTON New York, Nov. 4 — W)— Continued favorable war news and which.will carry on under Tokyo's 'leadership. '' This Japanese effort to establish an Asiatic bloc isn't a thing to be 'brushed aside lightly, because we can't say in advance lhat victory ' "by arms over. Ihe Mikado's forces ' will eliminale Ihe polilical danger. The Japs are treading circumspectly, and we can see the danger sig- ' nals in such places as Burma and Siam, which apparently accept Jap . leadership willingly. There are other diquieting factors in the situation. You know, we ! r shouldn't fool ourselves into believ- -^ing that all the peoples of the ''"'Orient are in love with either '^America or Britain. A lot of folk -there don't like us. .I've reported in this column Ireviously, Ihere is a widespread eling in Ihe Orient lhal the four .eedoms and Ihe Atlantic Charter aren't intended for the peoples of the East at'all, but only for the West. Even China, our ally, has been much concerned over this, as has neighboring India. i The situation has been complicated by India's bitterness over the political quarrel with Britain, an imbroglio in which high Chinese personages sympathize with India. Brines says Shanghai's conlrolled newspapers are devoting great space to the Indian Subhas Chandra Bose and his drive for a "new national Indian army," which Bose says will "march to New Delhi and liberate India with Japan's benevolent support." Bose fled India in 1940 with sedition charges against him, and the Japs have been trying through him to rally Indians to Nippon's cause.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York, Nov. 4 — (IP)— Another peace-selling wave hit the slock market today, after an early recovery attempt failed to draw much of a following, and leading industrial and rails dipped fractions to around 2 points. Dealings were slack on the morning revival. The break in prices after mid-day on relatively large volume concided with the statement made to a senate sub-committee by former president Hoover that "At the present moment we're certainly in the latter stages of the (European) War"-probably "The Last winter" of fighting in Europe.

Nov. 4 (/Pi — A draft-vegistranl in Poinsett County, Ark., who brought his local board a letter proving he was married and the father of seven children is probably wondering what-goes-on-here? The letter, according to the War Manpower Commission's Selective Service bulletin, sent him off promptly to the induction station. It read: "Dear United States Army: "My husband asked me to write and recommend that he supports his family. Ho cannot read, so don't tell him. Just take him. He ain't no good to me. He ain't done nothing but raise Hell and drink lemon essence since I married' him 8 years ago. and I got to feed seven kids of his. Maybe you can get him to carry a gun. He's good on squirrels and eating. Take him and welcome. I need the grub and his bed for the kids. Don't tell him this, but just take him and send him as far as you can." Details of the program for making Jtiiry teed payments to Arkansas farmers was announced this week by Earl Martindale, Chairman of the Hempstead County Triple-A commjtte. The payments arc made by the Commodity Credit Corporation but applications for payment will be received at the county Triple-A office and payments authorized by county Tripple- A committee-men. Payments in Hempstead county, Mr. Martindale, snid, will be 50 cents a hundred pounds for whole milk and 0 cents a pound for butler- lat which are the maximum payments allowed under the program. "Purpose of the program," Mr. Marlindalc said, "is to increase milk production because of the im portance of whole milk and dairy products in our nation's wartime diet and it is requested that com- mitleemen make every effort to sec that this new type program brings about the desired increased production. "The speed with which the program must be handled is thc utmost importance. Two payments will be made during the October- December quarter. The firsl payment covering October production and sales will be made as soon as possible after November 1 and the j second payment covering November and December will be made as soon as possible after the first of next year." Applications for payment will be made at the county Triple-A office at Hope and after payments have been computed and applications reviewed by the county committee, drafts will be issued to the producers. The drafts may be cashed al any bank. The county committee will meet at least once a week v to approve applications and it >s expected that farmers will receive their drafts within a week after making application for the payments. In making applications for payment, producers must submit records of sales supported by acceptable evidence of sales. Milk statements or sales slips from co-ops, dairies, creameries, and other purchasers showing the amount of whole milk or bultcrfat purchased, the date of purchase and the name dence of sale. If n producer is unable to furnish satisfactory written evidence of stile, his personal certification of the amount sold, number of cows milked, food used, and customers served mny be accepted if the iiminml reported as sold is consistent with the County Commit' tee's knowledge- of his business. Milk will be considered as being produced in the county in which the msidered us being located Stripper Organization Seeks Price Hike El Dorado, Nov. 4 I/I 1 ) — The newly-organized South Arkansas Stripper Well Association will press a demand for a 37-cenl per barrel increase in the price of Smackover crude oil before the Office of Price Adminlstrnllon petroleum branch.

Fulbright Vredicts Fascism's Collapse Washington, Nov. 4 (K>) Rep. Fulbright (D-Ark) in an Office of War Information overseas broadcast beamed to Italy forecast complete collapse of Fascism over the entire world. His remarks were broadcast on the 21st anniversary of Mussolini's coming into power. "For twenty-one years Mussolini debauched Italy," said the Fulbright statement broadcast by .an OWI announcer. "He set up a dictatorship by torturing and murdering Democratic opponents, by betraying the people with false promises, and by terrorizing those he could not fool." Now that Mussolini has fallen, Fulbright maintained, "the collapse of Fascism in Italy presages the collapse of Fascism in Germany and elsewhere."

My impression is that Japanese land forces will fight most desperately for the Netherlands East Indies and Ma laya, whose raw materials are vital, and the strategic areas o central and north China and Manchuria, from where the Allies could threaten Japan's vital industrial areas from the air. The controlled press is now directing allenlion to the prospective Burma campaign under the guise of thunderous anti-India propaganda.

Millicent had never been able to break her o£ her participation in family affairs. In recent years she had not tried. Why should she? Ellen never took a day off and she was the best cook in Cranberry. "That Frank," she said, "many a handout I've given him at the kitchen door. Once he stole the pies off the window sill. I gave him the flat of my hand where it would do the most good." The Halls, including Millicent, dissolved into he-lpkss laughter. "Well," said Nancy, picking al her food, mindful of her figure. "at least something's happened in Cranberry. Two new men." "Two?" repeated Ellen alertly. Her employer explained. Ellen. tall and spare, nodded. "It's a.bnut time,' s'he said, and vanished from thc dining room. (To Be Continued) No WoiTy On Coffee Rationing Miss Betty Mangeot isn't worrying about coffee rationing any more. She's silting amid carloads of green coffee in one of the warehouses o£ the Kroger Grocery and Baking Company. In spile of the fact that Ration Book 4 contains a stamp marked "coffee", O.P.A. officials assure the public it will not be used, and there is no intention now to reinstate coffee rationing.

Marigny Tells of Marriage to Nancy Oake By E.V.W. JONES Nassau, Bahamas, Nov. 4 — (IP) — In loud, French-accented words, Alfred de Marigny told from the witness stand in the Bahamas Supreme Court today of his marriage May 19, 1942, to Nancy Oakes, the daughter of the man he is on trial for killing. Leaving the barred prisoner's dock to tell his story for the first time, the tall, slender defendant in a sensational murder trial described his courtship of the red- haired Nancy, then 18 years old. They had known each other for months, he related, when he went to New York in March, 1942, lor medical treatment. He saw Nancy often while there, he said, and made a trip to California with her in the company of Mr. and Mrs. George de Happ When they returned he underwent an operation. "I told Nancy that if it turned out all right, we would get married," he said. "On May 1U, 1942, we were married in New York." A helmcf.ed guard stood beside the witness stand while the accused son-in-law talked. ' De Marigny leaned against the rail, swayed slightly and occasion- ly scratched his nose while he answered the questions put to him with a firm "yes" or "no." He did not add the customary "sir" or "your honor." The courtroom was packed for the long-awaited appearance of the man who is charged with beating Sir Harry on the head and leaving him to die on a burning bed.

(The following eyewitness account of thc landing of marines on thc western shores of Bou- sainvillc was written by 37-year old Associated Press War Correspondent Rembcrl James who has followed thc Allied spearhead northward from the Central Solomons to thc dramatic Empress Augusta Bay landing) By Rembert James With U. S. Marines on Bougainville Island, North Solomons, No. (Delayed) (/P)— At thc foot of a fuming volcano, United Stales marines this morning began Ihe con- quesl of Japan's last and most powerful Solomons holding — heavily garrisoned Bougainville island. It was an opposed landing, despite heavy shelling by U. S. naval units and dive bomber atlacks that between them raised more smoke than I can see now pouring from thc conlinually smoldering peak of Mount Bagana, rising .6,, r >00 feet some 10 miles inland from the landing point at Empress Augusta bay. , • Thc marines came ashore shooting after their landing boats survived a heavy shelling from Japanese mortars. That was Ihrec hours ago, al 8:25 a.m. Ihere followed two and a half hours of almost continuous machine gun and rifle firing as the first assault wave of marines cleared up enemy positions several miles along the beachhead and pushed into the jungle. During a bailie al Mik Lc Beach, Japanese planes attempted to attack our transports and destroyers lying offshore. A few enemy planes got through thc screen of American interceptor planes but I saw two fall in flames. The landing on the biggest of Solomons islands half again as large as Guadalcanal — was made al Cape Torokino, on the soulh- wcslern side of Bougainville. The landing point is but 240 miles from the enemy's New Britain fortress at Rabaul. Our armada steamed into Empress Augusta Bay and while nearing Cape Torokino thc destroyer force opened with a terrific predawn barrage. Passing the narrow cape each large transport also sent a barrage of smaller shells into the Japanese shore positions. It was an awesome sight as streams of red tracer bullets illuminated the gloom with many richocheting off Ihe waler inlo Ihe shore.

No Change in Withholding Tax Rate Washington, Nov. 3 (/I 1 )— Thc House Ways and Means Committee decided today against making any change at this time in thc 20 percent withholding rate against the taxable portions of wages and salaries. It decided also: 1. To require the Internal Revenue Bureau to publish in the federal register the names of sorpora- tions gaining refunds under relief provisions of thc excess profits tax, and thc amounts. 2. Remove toilet soap from the new list of excises. This reduced the new tax bill by $6.000,000, leaving a total of $2.029,000,000 against an administration requcsl for 310,500,000,000 in additional revenue. Excises on other toilet preparations such as mouth washes and denlrifrices, were not disturbed. Treasury Secretary Morgenthau had proposed lo thc committee lhat the withholding levy be put on a graduated basis, "to keep millions more of our taxpayers on a strictly current, paid-up basis, by covering the full liabilily in all brackels instead of jusl the first bracket, as al present." The committee instructed thc congressional tax staff to prepare a new sel of withholding exemptions "to more nearly approximate the correct withholding levy" under the present 2 percent rale. year's national tourney, opens its j ! season here Nov. 9-10 in a game wilh the Des Moincs, la., A.I.B.

The Owls come up first at Houston this week-end and Coach Bud Tomlin will have one of his ace running backs, Roady Nicholas, ready to shoot at them. Nicholas, fleet 180-pounder. has been on the sidelines three weeks with an injury. Thc Porkers left behind Bob Cope, veteran guarU who has an injured leg. and Tomlin said halfback Marvin Lindsey, who suffered an ankle injury in practice, may not see much action against Pace. Appropriations Bill Suffers 82% Slash Opening thc way for resumption of a battle over the future of the Farm Security Administration, the committee turned down that agency's request for $6,500,000 for salaries and expenses and. denied its request for authority to borrow $37,500,000 more for operating loans to farmers. Even as the committee stressed economy wHhout danger to thc war effort, it touched upon thc problem of disposing of large quantities of surplus war material which no longer is needed. "Unless Congress makes some definite provision in the near future," the report said, "there is likely to be a recurrence of the situation of World War I, where large surpluses were in the hands of individual agencies for disposal | with no coordination of thc efforts of all of them as a single prob- em." } Among the biggest reductions i were $5,707.500 in the amount sought by Paul McNutt's War Manpower Commission, S3,545,000 from ihe Federal Security Agency, $3,963,150 from the Office of Education, $150,000,000 from war Housing, $3,340,175 from the Interior Department, and $1,663,500 from the Treasury Department The American people lost an average of $771,000 every year through the acceptance of bogus currency from 1933 to 1936.
