Red - robed and bewigged Chief Justice Sir Oscar Bedford ^Daly declared in charging the •Ajury: "No man in the empire, even in /time of war, can be found guilty "except on verdict of a jury." Impression: that law applies in ^-'America, too. One of the things this war is being fought for is to l-r.isustaln such rights. You have that JF" driven home when you recall Hit- sV ler's savage threat in his Munich beer-hall speech last week: "What has happened in 1918 will i not happen a second time. When * many thousands must fall in battle, it will not hesitate to put a few hundred criminals (people advocating peace) to death at home." The Red forces thundering southwestward from Kiev are a hundred miles or so from the Rumanian frontier. .That border is Hitler's lid which is keeping all hell from breaking loose in the Balkans. Impression: The moment the Fuehrer-is forced to withdraw his )'control from this cockpit of s'outh- „ eastern Europe, the Balkans will v blow up in his face. No wonder the • J -- Allies and the Turks are whispering animatedly. . War Production Board Chairman Donald Nelson, in telling a press conference about his recent trip to the Soviet Union, said the Russians had perfected the flow of ma'. tenals in war industry—"I mean the flow of material into a plant, and the flow of materal out, much better than we have." , Impression:when you're fighting the greatest battles ever waged and are consuming more war material than ever before has been poured into conflict, you have no alternative but to perfect your flow of supplies. There can be no consid-. eration in Russian industry of any; ( thing but to move supplies as fast \ as human strength and skill per" f mit That's a home-front job, and Russian .civilians are a lot nearer the actualities ol war than* ~we 4n i America,^ '* -'' * i" Classified Adi mutt b* In office day b«fof« publication.

There's more than an ancient football rivalry to be settled this time. The outcome will shape thc Arkansas High school conference championship picture.

The foreign office replied Allied plans now being worked out will make such a reward unnecessary. Impression: That "last mile" is the toughest, Herr Hitler. Come to think it over, it's also the toughest for the executioners, as we saw when they balked at "hanging the Kaiser" after the last war. American and British bombers yesterday made heavy attacks on Brenner Pass and the Mont Cenis tunnel. Impression: These are Nazi bottle - necks into northern Italy. They're at once the routes for supplies and reinforcements into Italy, and the mountain gateways for escape of Hitler's forces from the peninsula. Cork up these bottlenecks and Marshal Rommel's expeditionary force in Italy will be in a nasty position. i Market Report ST.

Zivic and Jake Lamotla tangle in a ten-rounder in Madison Square Garden tonight, and all signs—including thc bookmakers' slates in the better 49th street betting shoppes — point to thc possibility Fritzie won't be nearly as frisky j when it's over. That is,' all signs point that way except the one Frisky Fritzie is carrying. In his usual few thousand well-chosen words, thc last ot thc Five Flying Zivics has been giving all who will listen, as well as those who can't help themselves, the Pittsburgh equivalent of thc "I'll moidcr da bum" routine. Since this may be "thc kid's last fight"—he reports for his draft board "screen test" Sunday— you can't go overboard on Jake. With Fritzie, anything can happen, even though he'll be outweighed some ten pounds this time, and in his recent trips to the post has ap- 'peared to be running out of gas like a guy who's lost his "A" book.

The Cats meet Magnolia's Panthers, a team which already holds a 13-C victory over the locals. The Bobcats' hopes soared this week with the return of Rogers, fleet back who has been out the past two games. His return will greatly offset the loss of Billy Wells, line-plunging mainstay of the Cat backfield, probably will not see action, due to an injury. Although once-beaten by the Panther's thc Hope team has Improved considerably since they played the Columbia county eleven, October 8, and are gunning for revenge.

On thc stage, which will be a replica of a medieval court, thc queen will be surrounded by her maids and thc football captain will make the presentation ot thc crown. The court jester, emerging from a mock football game, will predict a smashing defeat for thc visitors. The queen will be attended by two maids from each of thc four upper grades.

Green termed the suggestion "unjustifiable." It was made by WLB Chairman William H. Davis, Vice Chairman George W. Taylor and Dr. Frank P. Graham, all public members of the board. Davis, Taylor and Graham replied 'that they referred to future labor-management disputes and not to past or current controversies. They said that 'organized labor "except for the United Mine "*•' Workers" had established an excellent record in the war effort. The WLB public members deplored John L. Lewis' continued defiance of the board and Uts orders and said such, an example,, if .;fol- (i lo_w£d by .,pthc£;,u,niqnsi ^wpulrVC'jzeV. ''quire more stringent labor legislation. Lewis is head of the United Mine Workers.

OOTOU reel GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, Nov. 12 —(/P)— Milling demand propped up the wheat market today, but trading was on a reduced scale and gains were confined to minor fractions. Rye \yas under moderate commission house pressure while barley and pats showed little change from the previous session.

Only six of the Japanese survived and not a single ship in the carrier force was seriously damaged. In the Rabaul and fleet action, 88 Japanese planes were shot down against a loss of 17 American planes. By Friday only eight warships remained in the harbor and thc 300 planes on Rabaul's airports had been considerably reduced as the Japanese presumably dispersed thc others to scattered bases. However, in spite of heavy losses, a spokesman for General Douglass MacArthur pointed out, the enemy "is able to continuously maintain the strength of his air forces"- in the area. •* "He can fly even his fighter types from the empire itself to this front in four days. By this means, it is possible for him to fly in from 10 to 150 planes a day."

Yanks Capture 2 More Towns in Sharp Fighting By EDWARD KENNEDY Allied Headquarters, Algiers, Nov. 13 (/P)— American troops in sharp fighting have captured two more towns north and northeast of Venafro, and a British patrol has crossed the Sangro river along the eastern end of the Nazi winter line in Italy, it was announced today. Dispatches from Italy disclosed for the first time that the enemy's bitter counterattacks on Thursday had succeeded in gaining some ground on the fifth army's front. In resuming the advance, fifth army units recovered high ground they had taken Wednesday but lost to the Germans Thursday. The new surge carried the Americans beyond the limits of Wednesday's advance. CThe German communique, without mentioning the day of the action said "some heights on both sides of the valley of Mignano" were retaken by the Germans in counterattacks after heavy fightnig. The communique said "the enemy was flung back to his orginal position.") There was bitter fighting under extremely difficult conditions at several points as the Allies lashed out against the massive Nazi line, but the front as a whole saw little Says Women Drink Their Coffee Black New Orleans —(/P) Jerry Laurent says it's the women who drink their coffee black at the famous Morning Call coffee house in the historical French quarter of New Orleans.

Sen. Harry F. Byrd has openly ttacked the whole subsidy idea as 'bypassing" Congress. Sen. Carl Hatch, apparently believing it will >e impossible to get approval for urlhcr subsidies, has had a group if congressmen meet with Judge ones in an effort to find other means of meeting the same end, vhich is to keep control over the cost of living. This ultimate objec- ive is as much a part of the Jones program as are his proposals to accomplish it. The farm organization leaders <eep up their needling of the War Food Administration, but largely on current problems. They opposed ,he recently established ceiling on soft wheat. They are against establishing ceilings on citrus fruits, now under consideration. They are particularly opposed to any price rollbacks. Labor groups, on the other hand, keep up their pressure campaign for rollbacks on the cost of living. It is against all these confused und conflicting forces that thc War Food Administrator must work for thc acceptance of his program, which since thc 10,000-word food message to Congress has now become the President's program. Maybe Judge Jones can put it over. If not, watch for a lot of midnight oil burning around WFA.

Washington, Nov. 13 — (IP)— Army intelligence, whose business it is to get all thc information obtainable about the enemy, today blueprinted for congressional examination the reasons why many military authorities do not share recent public optimism over prospects for winding up the war in a hurry- And Muj. Gen. George V. Strong, acting chief of the military intelligence division, after an exhaustive review of what the United Nations arc still up against, made this i grave observation: "Our main advantage in thc struggle is our ability to produce weapons. If. through unwillingness to face facts, we give up this advantage, if through over optimism we slow down production and relax our efforts, we may find that our opportunity for victory has escaped us permanently." The blueprint consisted of a review of a recent address before House members in secret session by Strong in which he presented data indicating the Germans are stronger now than in 1939 when they invaded Poland and that the real fight against Japan in the Pacific has only started. It was sent by the War Department to all congressmen, and was made public by Rep. Outland (D-Calif), who had previously quoted some of Strong's statements. The report as to Germany made these points: Germany has more than 300 well- irained divisions. United Nations optimism is based almost entirely on the ability "!' Russia to keep nearly three nuar- ters of the German army occupied and the ability of British and American aviators to continue tremendous raids on Germany's European fortress. German manpower increased from 23,000,000 employed in essential war industries in 1939 to 35. 000,000 now.

"That is thc highest recognition, the greatest tribute, that can come to any people on earth." Sawmill employes, men and women, were authorized by Under Secretary of War Robert E.

"I am sure that the pride of the lumber-jack and his wife and kid- pride of the paper mill employes dies is no greater today that the pride of the paper mill employes and his family, or the research chemist and his family, or thc clerk in the Crossett's corner drug store," the governor said. "You sawmill workers have upheld the traditions of Crossett, and in winning this award for the timber and lumber industry, you have joined Arkunsans in our ordnance works, our mines and mills and refineries, in a splendid demonstration of the calibre or Arkansas citizens generally." Col. F. G. Shcrrill, chief of the Army engineers' materials and equipment branch at Washington, came here to make thc presentation. Chief Justice Griffin Smith, or Arkansas, acted as master of ceremonies. E. C. Crossett and Peter Watzek, manager ot the local company were hosts to visitors. reduced to the islands of Samos; ",'f? * • iyS German armament Adkins Addresses Methodist Session El Dorado, Nov. 1 3—(/P)— Governor Adkins stressed the need of laymen's interest in the spread of Christianity now and in the postwar period in an address prepared for delivery today at the Little Rock Methodist conference. "Is it nothing to you and me," he said, "that 36,000,000 of our own American youth are receiving no religious instruction, Jewish, Catholic or Protestant?" The governor asserted that 80,00,000 of our citizens are not affiliated with any church, and only about forty per cent of our church people attend church with any reg- ularlity. Post-war are many new models of tanks, self-propelled guns, rocket guns and other equipment in some cases better than anything the Allied armies have. The German air force has become the weakest point of the Gcr- than forces in Europe, but even this weakness should not be overemphasized. Germans have lost many of their best pilots since 1939. Until last July their production more than made up for their materiel losses in combat. During the first six months of this year german aircraft production rose approximately 25 percent. During that time, despite losses, the Germans were building up a surplus of planes. Since July their losses have exceeded production, but un ; less this high attrition rate is maintained their losses will be quickly recuperated and to feed this recuperation the German air force has refused combat wherever possible. Germany's steel position is excellent. In 1938 she had a' production of 25.600,000 tons. She now controls resources with a total steel production of 42,000,000 tons, Germany maintains tremendous coal production. In 1942 she produced 186,000,000 tons.

The board of conference claimants reported that $12 per service year had been apportioned for payment to claimants this year representing a total expenditure of more than $26,000. The conference will close tomorrow with announcement by Bishop Charles C. Selecman of appointments for the coming church year.
