After stressing the good-will' 'and confidence established, he Saitd *• "The truth must be faced that it is on the part of these three powers principaly that will lie the re• sponsibility for insuring that this war be followed by lasting peace. If they could agree together there i is t»o point that is not capable of i final solution. If they do not agree • together there is no international event which could not, become an ; international problem." f ' This is so because, to put it /• bluntly, these three powers represent an all-round strength which is capable of enforcing their United wills. Their geographical positions and their resources make this certain. This may change in the course of time, but that's the way it is now. If this seems like exaggeration, just stop and check the global setup.^ Before this war the great powers of Europe were Russia, Germany, France, Italy and Britain France and Italy are down and out physically if not in spirit. Italy bids fair to lose her rank of first class power altogether, and poor France will retain it in name only for long years to come. Germany's fate remains to be seen, but the Reich most certainly will be, rendered impotent to make i war, and may even be split up once more into its component .states. ' " Out m tne orient the Japanese ability to make war is most certainly Being crushed, and the Mikado's empire is going to be torn apart. Ab'ility to make war is most cer- 'tainl being crushed ,d and the Mi* kado's empire is going to be torn apart Rich Manchuria, which Nip- ,pon might have held if her savage greed hadn't impelled her to in- i vade China, is going to be taken <• a"way.

It will take her years' ; lo recover from thej * damage wrought by the barbaric invaders, develop! her resources and overcome trejnendous internal political difficulties. Meantime the dominant influences in Asia will be that same big three. 'Were the world in a healthy, peaceful condition it likely would be difficult to persuade its people to accept wilingly the guardianship of a triple entente like the 'big three. That's placing a lot of power in the hands-of a few. However, the world is sick. It's going through a re-birth which will introduce a new epoch in the pro- gregs of man. There is n° earthly power upon which the weaker nations can lean excepting that rep- relented in the big three. Fortunately the aims of Ihe trio, as indicated by word and deed, arq to reestablish peace and help < build a free and prosperous world. Their purpose is tP draw all nations into this effort on the basis of sharerand-share alike. Thus the main concern of the world at large now is that the big three have indeed reached the Stage of mutual trust and coopera tiga, and that nothing happen to • disturb this unity. It would be foolish to believe th.at there's a gooc phance.of the big three making th,e grade. Classified Adi rtiutt b« In dtflet day b«for« publication. All Wont Ads cash In odvonrt.

OPA Assailed by House Group; Change Sought Washington, Nov, 15 (/P) The Office of Price Administration was assailed today by a congressional committee which accused it of having promulgated "illegal, absurb, useless and conflicling" regulations and of having "conslrued its power to authorize it to sentence citizens of the United States to starvation." The committee, headed by Rep. Smith (D-Va) and created by the House to keep a check on activities of executive agcncies,':«rccom- rricndcd changes in cxisting^law to "retain and strengthen inflation control and at the same time eliminate the abuses and injustices now apparent," Conceding a need for "extraordi,- nary governmental action" in time of war to mobilize the nation's eco- nomlc as well as military, . re• Mat tftsrth'c"c6mmfttee sald"<'"there" are right and wrong ways to accomplish these purposes," the wrong way being by the usurpation of power by executive agencies through "misinterpretation and abuse of powers" granted by Congress "and the assumption of powers not granted." Against the OPA it made this charge: "The Office of Price Administra- i lion has assumed unauthorized •* powers to legislate by regulatior and has, by misinterpretation oi acts of Congress, set up a nationwide system of judicial tribunals through which this executive agency judges the actions of Amer- 0 ican citizens relative to Us owi regulations and orders and imposes drastic and unconstitutional penal tics upon those citizens, depriving them in certain instances of vita rights and liberties without due ,'•. process of law." The OPA was not alone in seizing legislative and judicial functions the committee said, promising t expose in future reports "other ex cutivc agencies." The committee said document O found in the files of David Gins burg, former OPA general counsel who was inducted into the army last April, proved "a paramount purpose" of legislation drafted by Ginsburg and Leon Henderson, Q first OPA head, was to place, "so far as possible, final and non-re- viewable power and authority in the hands of the administrator."

The whole story of this collection job was revealed by Bureau of Internal Revenue experts, headed by Assistant Commissioner Harold N. Graves, when they appeared recently before the House Ways and Means Committee to ask for more money lo complete the year's collection. Originally the BIR had been given $95 million, but when Congress passed the pay-as-you-go tax bill, the cost of collection went up so high tihat the BIR boys had to come back, and ask for $22 million more. Under pre-war conceptions .f what constiluted hay, $22 mil- ion might have been considered a jalc. Today it is mere straw needed o bed down the manager for Ihc i39 billion war horse. •* * * Breakdown of Total This $39 billion is made up of $32 billion income taxes, $1.5 billion alcohol taxes, $3.4 billion miscel- aneous taxes and $2.1 billion in Victory, payroll withholding, or employment taxes. 4aking"in this -.tw~haul;' the Bureau of Internal Revenue has to | examine 111 million returns—pieces i of paper filed by the taxpayers. The government printing bill for .hesc forms alone runs over $2 million. All these pieces of paper have to be checked, and that's where the headaches come in. There will be 54 million income tax returns, 30 million declarations of estimated tax, 10 million returns by employers .repenting on.the 80 million receipts given to 51 million em- ployes for taxes withheld jfrom',pay envelopes. The major part of the extra $22 million which the federal tax col lectors say they'll need will go for administering these pay-as-you-go taxes, which are requiring an extra 13,000 employes. These are additions to the present BIR force of over 36,000 employees. In other words, it will take the services ol 49,000 people just to collect federal taxes this year. * * * Double Trouble The 111 million returns which they will have to examine is abou double the number they had to check last year. For every tax payer, the declaration made ou last Sept. 15 must be associatec with the' final return to be filed next March 15, with the receip which the taxpayer gets from hi. employer, with payments made on account of 1942 taxes last March 1 and June 15, with the inslallmen to be made Ihis coming Dec. 15 and so on.

The members of the American Legion have exhausted every effort in trying to obtain some governmental agencies to occupy this beautiful camp site, in order to maintain same for future use as a recreation center. Having failed in this undertaking, the committee in charge deems it bost to sell all properties and build a building after the war that will be more suitable for all purposes. We have arranged for a sale, Monday, November 22nd, at the camp site. All buildings and equipment will be sold at auction to the highest bidder. Ample time will be given to remove the buildings.

De Marigny Invited to Leave Bahamas Tons of Bombs Dropped on Two Key Jap Bases —War in Pacific Southwest Pacific Allied Headquarters, Nov. 15 (ft*)— American bombers, in a perfectly coordinated three-ply attack, dropped a record load of 223 ton's of explosives on Alcxishafen and Madang, ending for the time being an increasing threat to Allied positions" on New Guinea. The mission was to smash bases from which the Japanese had 1 been strafing Australian troops arid American aircraft in New Guiriea's Markham and Ramu valleys, and apparently supplying forward bases. Shortly after dawn Saturday P-4 ....and P-39 fighters strafed the 5 two airstrips at Alcxishafen, starting towering fires at the expense of one plane, downed by severe antiaircraft opposition. Then came wave after wave of Liberator bombers at medium altitude, followed by Mitchells at tree-top height. The 223 tons they dropped was the heaviest load ever thrown against New'Guinea .and was second only to the 350-ton raid Oct. 12 against Rabaul. A strong force of fighters formed a protective umbrella, but not a Japanese plane rose to fight. Our bombers struck also at Ra- baul and Gasmata on New Britain nd raked Buka and Buin on the orthcrn and southern extremities f Bougainville.

A 42-mile advance took the plunging Soviet columns into Baranovka since the capture of the rail junction of Zhitomir on Saturday. Thirty-eight miles to the northwest of Baranovka is the town of Gorodnitsa, just inside the old Russian border. Fifty-two miles directly west of Baranovka is Ostrog, just inside the old Polish frontier. The old line of demarcation slanting to the northeast from Ostrog comes within 35 miles of the present Red army lines. Soys Communists Behind Poll Tox Bill Washington, Nov. 15 —UP —Senators John L.

The Senators said it must be defeated to stop the march of Communist in this country and they were ready to filibuster the bill to death when it comes up for Senate debate. . , Another 1 problem forcing its way to the surface in the Senate today was the liquor shortage. Sen. Fredrick Van Nuys, D., Ind., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said he would ask for a $10,000 appropriation to begin an investigation. The senator came to his decision on the heels of disclosures that Washington bootleggers were selling whiskey for $10 a quart.

Holding that teletype tickers seized from B. R. Muncrief,,.Spa printer, were used to supply horse race information and therefore in hcmselves were gambling devices lie tribunal reversed Pulaski cir- uit court and remanded the case vith directions to "proceed in a rianner consistent with the deci- iion." The tribunal also ruled that jus- ices of the peace had authority to ssue search and seizure warrants against gambling houses and that state police were empowered to serve the warrants. It reversed Pulaski chancery in a suit in which Tony Karston, Hot Springs had challenged authority of state police chief, Gray Albright and assistant cheif, C. P. Atkinson to act on warrants issued by Hurst. The high court directed the lower courts to dismiss the suits for want of equity. Associated Justice Robins, who prepared the Karston decision, dissented in the Muncrief case. "We think it clear on admitted facts that Muncrief deliberately converted these teletype machines to an unlawful use thereby converting them lo gambling devices," the court held in a majority decision prepared by Associate Justice Holt. When the machines were seized last summer by state police they were transmitting information re' lating lo horse' racing and track odds, the opinion said, adding: "It is clear Muncrief was aiding and a betting the operation of various gambling houses." In these circumstances the police were clothed with authority to arrest Muncrief and to seize and -con- process of the chancery court in order that he might operate his gambling house hereafter without molestation from the state police. So we have a suitor who impliedly admits that he has been maintaining a public nuisance coming into court and asking he be protected in his continued maintenance of the nuisance." In holding valid the search and seizure warrant issued by Hurst the court said justices of the peace could issue all process necessary to exercise jurisdiction over felony cases. Police had authority lo serve the warrant, the decision held, because the 1937 statute establishing the iody provided "they have the lowers possessed by policemen in cities and sheriffs in counties except that they may exercise such lowers anywhere in the state. •Forceful a r g u m e n t made against the expedience and wisdom London, Nov. 15 — (/P) — The Germans high command announced today Russian cossacks and tanks, in a sweeping drive west of Gomel, had driven to Rechitsa, about 30 miles to the southwest of the railroad linking Gomel with Poland, but had been beaten back in attempts to capture the town. The advance along the northern edges of the vast Pripet marshes also threatened to split off the Northern German armies from the forces of the Central Front. Another Berlin broadcast acknowledged the German evacuation of Zhitomir, rail junction of the Nazis' last north-south railroad artery east of the old Polish border, whose fall threatened to cut the central Nazi forces off from the southern German armies.

In his dissenting opinion in the Muncrief case Associate Justice Robins said. I can't agree that these teletype machines located in a room which was part of Muncrief's printing office were gambling devices. They were merely typewriters operated by remote control over telegraph wires. Such instruments are to be found in nearly every telegraph office and in many newspaper establishments. ••Suppression of gambling is important but not more important than maintaining in all their pristine vigor those constitutional safeguards which our forefathers created for us after they had bought with 'blood, sweat, and tears' the right to erect a constitutional system of free government.
