The light, inexperienced Bobcats have steadily improved after each game and are now capable of giving the state's best teams a rough battle as proved last weekend against Hot Springs. Their showing against the Trojans practically insures a large crowd for the remaining home games the next two weekends. The youngsters have been working doubly hard for the Gurdon contest, spirited by Coach Hammons' assertion yesterday that 'practically every man on the squad will see some action "regardless of the game's outcome. A chance to play Friday night puts more fight into subs who in some cases have been known to show up better than regulars when allowed to play. Gurdon has suffered several oe- feats this season, all by close scores. They also have a light, fast team and are believed abovit evenly matched with the Bobcats, having hold Magnolia to a pair o£ touchdowns as did the Bobcats. All in all it looks like another good game here Friday. Swastika and Sleeper ' fc^w _,* .v".

Army, Irish Grid Teams Preparing for Saturday By HAROLD CLAASSEN West Point, N. Y.. Nov. 4 (/!')— Angelo Bortelli's leaving Notre Dame and making possible Johnny Lukack's quarto-backing hns taken so much of the grid funs' attention that most of them have forgotten thnl Doug Kcnna of Army virtually will make his debut when the Cadets and Irish collide in New York Saturday. Like Lujack lie lias been no more than a substitute this season but It has been an injured knee, not the presence of n player with more talent, that lias kept the Mississippi marvel bench-ridden. In fact. Lt. Col. Earl Blaik who conches the Army football team says unqualifiedly that Kcnna "is the best back I over have coached" and that lie is Ilic best ball carrier at West Point since the late Red Cuglc. • But a trick knee joint lias caused him more trouble than rationing does a conk. He played only briefly last year but was outstanding in the Cadets' final period drive against Navy. Sports Mirror By the Associated Press Today A Year Ago Georgia was in tlrst place in the weekly Associated Press football poll, with Wisconsin second and Georgia ', Tech third. Three Years Ago — The list of undefeated and untied football teams included Kent Stale (Ohfo), Millignn Tcnn.l, nnd St. Ambrose (Iowa). Five Years Ago — Bobby Cifcr;;.

This ycnr the knee joint has stopped -him twice nnd he has played only 12 minutes, ugainst Pennsylvania last week. •In that brief appearance lie showed that he knew what pass defense was nil about and once on offensive he was hemmed in neater than a bride's tea towel for an apparent 10-yard loss by a quartet i of Quakers. When the whistle toot- i ed, however, two of the Pcnnsyl- I vanians were prone. Army had a six-yard gain and Kcnna had been stopped by the sidelines. Kcnnn and all the rest of the \ grid sciutid have become infected i with the tenseness thut usually pro-' cedes the "big game." Blaik is try- I ing to rid them of it but the Cadctr, !

Commenting on new American victories in the Southwesl Pacific, President Roosevelt said it carries out the old idea of whittling away .j at Japanese strength and it has '" been exlrcmcly successful. While Ihe operation at Bougainville is part of the stepping stone method, in a sense, he added it was aimed at knocking out the strong Japanese base at Rabaul. X He said Rabaul was the princi pal Japanese point of operations in lhat area and that the progress the American forces arc making there is aimed at rendering Rabaul use less and continuing on from there Of the lone South American re ' public which continues to maintain diplomatic relations with Germany md rebuffs United States' attempts at friendship, Tomlinson says: "A meat-rationed visitor from North America finds lunchtime in the average Buenos Aires restaurant today something like a chapter out of the Arabian Nights . . .

G. F.

Laughlin said that large bodies of aluminum bearing clay had re ccntly been discovered in Oregon Washington and Idaho from which it was feasible to produce alumi num. For Argentina, as you may recall, is one of the world's major suppliers of meat and wheat, for generations having supplied a sub- lanlial part of the foodstuffs con- umed by England and Germany— nd still does, in the case of Eng- and. Alone among Ihc South American lalions Argentina has resisted all idvanccs oi friendship and alliance by the United States—the reason jeing thai our rcspeclivc trade in- lercsls clash: We can not buy appreciable amounts of Argentina's beef and wheat because our own American farmers make these their major crops .And whatever beef or wheat we'scll abroad finds us competing with the big, proud and im portant South American nation. The genius who discovers a business formula for successful Iradc wilh Argentina will have solved a problem which no diplomat or militarist has been able to do.

London, Nov. 5 — (/P)— A much- dccoraled Arkansas pilol's views on the wearing ot his decorations earned for him prominently-displayed comment in one of the big London newspapers, the Evening Standard. He is Lieut. Col. Lewis E. Lyle of Pine Bluff. With his picture, the article occupied the most prominent spot in the Evening Standard's editorial page. The picturq shows Lyle in flying gear standing beside his Flying Fortress. The article, headlined "The Colonel's Ribbons," follows: "If you see an American air man with pilot's 'wings and no medal ribbons it does not neces sarily mean thai he has not earn ed any medals. Take the case of Lieut. Col. Lewis E. Lyle, who is a deputy group commander in the Eighth (U. S.) Air Force.

S. Marine beachhead on Bougainville. An enemy cruiser and four destroyers were sunk, two cruisers and two destroyers damaged out of a task force of 12 which tried to sneak down from Rabaul through darkness and blinding rain early Tuesday and shell the marines at Empress Augusta bay. Forly miles out, United States fighting ships shallered that attempt and, after a two-hour run ning battle, sent the remnants fleeing toward Rabaul. Even then, the enemy warships were not safe. I is considered likely that the survivors of the naval encounters vere among the three destroyers sunk and two heavy cruisers dam aged in a bomb blitz on Rabaul'! larbor nine hours later by Genera VlacArthur's Mitchells.

At dawn that Tuesday, those same ships were attacked by 67 Japanese planes, sustaining more damage but weathering the raid and shooting down 17.

At Empress Augusta bay, where the marines surprised the Japs by landing Mori- day 45 miles northwest of the enemy's strong Bougainville garrison at fiuin, Nipponese soldiers now have been routed from Puru- ata Island near the beach and from strong positions on a cape. Thirty miles south of Bougainville, American and New Zealand soldiers have won complete control of Treasury (Mono) Island. All organized resistance by its 200 Japanese defenders were crushed Wednesday, one week after the invaders landed under cover of destroyer guns and bombing planes.

The apparent establishment of a ose understanding between the British, Americans and the Rus- _ians on a postwar world shunted aside a major stumbling block for Turkish collaboration, for the Turks have been apprehensive that a misunderstanding between Russia and the Atlantic Allies might some day leave here at the mercy of a dissalisfied and isolaled Rusia. Turkey's changed position might have any one of the following results: 1. Eventual participation in the war as a full fledged ally. 2. Measures short ot war such as granting of Turkish air bases from which the Allies could bomb German territory. 3. Continued neutralily, wilh the Turks, giving the Allies only such aid as could be managed without bringing Ihe nation into the com- Continued on ?^2- ?cur) Force from Britain.

Willis, 63-year-old Ashland attorney and former judge.of Ihe State Court of Appeals, will become. Kentucky's .sixth-.Republican, governor next month. His party, which had not elected a governor in this state since 1927 also won the lieutenant governorship and five other state cabinet posts. The Democrats, for years the dominant party in Kentucky, won only the attorney general's office in Tuesday's general election. One other state-wide contest was in doubt, with the Depocrat leading by a slim margin. Unofficial reports from all but nine of the state's 4,284 voting precincts showed today that Willis had defeated Democrat J. Lyter Donaldson of Carrollton, former highway commissioner, by more than 8,000 votes. Willis had 278,230 and Donaldson 270,168. Kenneth H. Tuggle, Republican, had 265,191 votes to 264,406 for William H. May of Preslonburg, recent stale commissioner of agriculture, for lieutenant governor. The Republicans won strength in both the Stale Senate and House of Represenlalives but incomplete reports showed the Democrats would continue to have control of both branches of the general as- All Land East of Dnieper in Hands of Russian Army By HENRY C. CASSIDY Moscow, Nov. 5 — (IP}— The Russians held virtually every foot of and east of the Dnieper today from its mouth below Kherson and along its 650-mile course through Jie heart of the Ukraine north to Gomel as the prize of their summer campaign, which they said bled the Germans of 2,700,000 casualties. Marshal Stalin's resume of four violent months of combat listed 900,000 Germans killed, 98,000 captured .and 1,702,000 wounded, thus hoisting German casualties claimed by Russia to an astronomical 11,000,000, of which the Russians said 5,000,000 lay dead. Swift sweeps over the Black Sea sands of the Southern Ukraine brought the Cossacks to the river banks opposite Kherson, 65 miles northwest of the sealed off Crimea. Official maps published today showed the Russians In possession of all the east side of the Dnieper from Gomel to Zaporozhe in the bend. South of Zaporozhe, the only German holdings east of the Dnie- per are limited to the Crimea, a thin strip 52- miles long opposite Nikopol, and a minute bit of land in the Dnieper delta due south of Kherson. i (Moscow said '• nothing of the Crimea, but, the Berlin radio said "German troops were engaged in heavy fighting on beachheads south and east of Kursk and on the northern approaches to the Crimea'."

Operators Ask Increase in Price of Coal Fort Smith, Nov. 5 (fft A mining recess, called by the opera- rs, threatened today to keep losed many of the 130 coal mines the Arkansas-Oklahoma fields /hich have been idle five days be- ause of a walkout by 5,000 union niners. More than 50 operators in the ebastian county field notified In- erior Secretary Ickes last night ney would not reopen their mines ntil a definite announcement was nade regarding a prposed coal n-ice increase. There were indications lhal a sini- lar allitude would be taken by other operators. Al Paris, Ark., S. A. Cpnnaugh- ,on, secretary of the United Mine Workers local there, said 1,000 miners reported for duty at mines n the Paris area yesterday and were told by Ihe operators that the mines would remain closed until an announcement was made on the coal price increase. R.A. Young, president of the Arkansas-Oklahoma Coal Operators Association, declared mine owners could not sell coal at the same price if they must pay miners an added $1.50 daily under the govern- ment-UMW agreement. A spokesman for the operators said a 50 to 70 cents a ton price increase would be necessary. In Washington, a raise of 14 to 45 cents per ton has been talked. The earliest known Polish com- mines to their private owners stil remain to be worked out. Government officials estimate! production was 40,000,000 tons be hind schedule this year, and thi might go to 45,000,000 tons. Most mines will not reach normal production until next week. In some outlying places the back- to-work instructions of the United Mine workers leadership were slow to arrive. In other cases the local unions planned meetings first to take votes. There seemed little doubt, though, that nearly all the men would be back by Monday unless unfavorable action on the wage scales upset the delicate situation. In the mine fields the situation was: Pennsylvania — about 12,500 soft coal miners were committed to work today with 105,000 still idle. Little more than 1,000 anthracite workers were on the job with most of the 80,000 others expecting to return Monday. Partial operations were reported in the soft coal region "captive" pits of Jones Laughlin Steel Corp.. Belhelhem Steel, Republic and U. S. Steel. J. L. said about 80 per cent of the 2,840 miners in its four pits reported, and the same percentage was back in Weirlon Steel's mine. A canvass of operators revealed ing direct hits on that key junction. RAF Wellingtons, in the wake of these blo\vs, pounded the freight yards at Orte, 53 miles north'of Rome and a short distance soiuMi- west of Terni, and sent, flames leaping into the sky. The yards lie in a 'bend of the Tiber where _ the Ciyitavecchia-Ancona route ' crosses the Rome-Florence main railway. Clouds of setam rose from the punctured boilers of three locomotives on sidings at Ayezzano, north of Isernia, after a sizzling Spitfire aid which hit the locomotive shed nd many cars. A choice target — more than 100 nemy motor vehicles moving from he battlefront along the Avezzano. sola road — was started, and at :ast 16 vehicles were left smould* iring. Other c.olumns were steaf- jd on the road from Formia Via Arce and Avezzano to Rome. Warhawks strafed two motor vessels off the Adriatic coast near Pineto and attacked enemy motor aunches near the harbor of Split on the Yugoslav coast. poser was Jan Kemp Lodz, died in 1340. 100 per cent production is not ex peeled to begin in the area's 1,220 bitumnoius coal mines before Monday. Some UMW locals have not scheduled meetings until tomorrow or Sunday to take ^ack-to-work votes. Alabama —Production was re sumed last night in at least 12 mines. UMW authorities represent ing 18,000 of the state's 20.00C miners promised to get their mei on the job immediately.
