The game will be homecoming 'or the Scrappers and Miss Mary Elizabeth Bright, sister of the late Vasco Bright, one of Hope's football greats, will be crowned queen. Vliss Bright is attending school in Mashville this year. Bands from the two schools will perform during the halftime period. In the first contest the Bobcats came from behind to tie the Howard county eleven 19-19, In one of the best games here this year. It was a battle all the Way with Hope scoring all their touchdowns on the ground, while Nashville look to the air. Tonight's game promises to be even better than the first contest as both squads will be gunning for a victory. Many local fans plan to accom pany the team. propellers' horizontal fins. These fins are diving fins and at no. lime do these .submarines take on Water ballast to submerge. The submerging and surfacing is accomplished entirely by these fins plus the power furnished by the two propellers. However, alter firing a torpedo, to compensate for the loss of weight there is n small trap door beneath the bow of the sub through which sufficient water is taken on to maintain a balance. Otherwise the sub would assume a vertical position. The air tanks in the fore part of the midseclion control the flow of water through this door and egulate the valves for emitting any excess water. The only means of entrance or exit to the submarine is through a 15Vi inch opening atop the conning .ower. You will perhaps notice the lower rung of a ladder just in front of the officer. This gives them thcii start up. The rest of the way, they have to pull themselves hand ovci hand. They have no room to bane their knees. IT they should do so they would become stuck in the conning tower shaft. The surface speed is estimated at 14 knots; submerged, G to 8 knots, the diving depth only 15 feel. The hull is made of 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch plate steel and comes in Jap Sub three sections^ The bow hoilsirig the 'irlng power; the mldsectlo'ft .housing the batteries, the officers' tfnd mechanic stations and the stern housing the motor and drive shaft. These three sections are bolted 1(5- gethcr. ' • The blue grey material on the outside of the submarine was put on by the Navy Department for touring purposes. The tracks running around the bow and stern sec in cradle-like rests are there so thnt we might roll the submarine over on its side when coming to a low overpass or bridge.

PINKHAM'S Wonted —Milk t Attention Farm Producers! We will buy all the fresh milk ,;, -' you can bring in to Qlie's Dairy ;rap which the world has been watching tensely for several weeks. Rather paradoxically, such German counter-attacks are really to the advantage of the Muscovites. Every fresh effort of this sort further weakens the Nazis, who no longer have the reserve manpower or the equipment to do more than stand off defeat for a while longer. Well, so much by way of explaining the significance of Hitler's display of strength. The Russians still retain the initiative and are doing a masterful job of cutting to pieces that ever lengthening German front which hourly becomes more difficult to defend. Super-optimists and wishful thinkers can resume their placid contemplation of the show. The fresh Red triumphs north of Zhitomir are of great importance —fully warranting the roars of triumph which last night burst from the throats of 124 victory guns in MOSCOW. The capture of the railway junction of Korosten, sixty miles from the old Polish border, has severed communication between the German armies in the Ukraine and those in White Russia in the north. The fall of Rechitsa to the north places the invaders in the Gomel sector, with its strategic railways, on a tough spot. Yesterday was another grand day for Russian arms. SPORTS ROUNDUP -If li|h S.

Seven een answered they were interested n trades but not in selling for aosh. set, from striking a floating object and exploding, and second to cut larbor and other protecting nets. The prong between the two warheads is there for towing purposes only. These submarines were towed n groups to a target area. Now after firing the two torpedoes the submarine was to seek a third target, dive under it or come along side of it and the officer would touch off the demolition charge, destroying the crew, the submarine and the target. The entire firing power is controlled by the officer from his station directly beneath the conning tower. He also controls .all the navigation of the submarine from there. When you are up on the catwalk and look through the ports at the section, you will sec a reasonable facsimile of a Japanese officer, in an authentic uniform standing at his post behind the periscope, within arms reach of all the valves, switches, buttons, necessary to fire the sub's charges and navigate it. You will also note that the officer has no room to sit down. The mechanic fares little better. You will notice as you peer through the next group of ports that the mechanic can recline on batteries, but he has no room to stand up. His sole duty is to keep the motor running. The highest point within the submarine is directly beneath the coning tower and that is only 5 feet 1 inch. When the officer and mechanic go from one compartment to the other they must assume a crawling position. The submarine is powered b; 1 storage batteries, similar to the jattery in your car. In this par- .icular submarine there were 10- jatteries alligned in four banks When the energy from one banl- was spent the officer would throw a switch to another bank and so on until all the power was expended Then the submarine would have to surface as there was no way tc recharge the batteries. In surfacing the submarine would become an easy prey either for the element of the sea or for its intended vie tim. An electric motor in the ster of the sub turns a dual drive shai spinning two propellers in opposit directions. The reasons for the tw propellers are many. They give th submarine additional power an' speed, prevent torque (that is th turning over of the sub) and kee it on an even keel.

H. WASHBURN On Being Ourselves Even While Fighting a War I have been reading the complete-text report which our five American senators published following their return from a world tour of the fighting fronts. You will recall who the senators are: Richard B. Russell, Georgia; Al-i ~~~—~~ O'oerl B. Chandler, Kentucky; Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., Massachusclls; James M. Mead, New York; and Ralph O. Brcwster, Maine. They agreed on a 10-point summary, one Horn of which stirred the whole Allied world. That was No. C, which read as follows: "The United Statse has con- slruotcd huge airfields all over the world at tremendous cost to our people. The use of some of these fields in the future may be just as essential to our security as battleships or divisions. We have no postwar rights of access to these fields outside the Western Hemisphere at the present time. These rights of access are also indispensable to the vitally important growth of commercial .v.-'ii.lon." It was this unanimous conclusion of the five senators which stirred up our English Allies following pub- Formations of Planes Again Cross Channel London, Nov. 20 (/P)— Formations of light Allied planes swept out across the channel today in a swift follow-up to a heavy assault by the RAF last night on the German chemical center of Levcrku- son where poison gas compnnonls are made.

Five bombers failed to'return. : Although details were lacking, the., force of heavy bombers presumably was smaller than the record fleet of some 1,000 four-engin- c4 heavyweights flung against Berlin .and Ludwigshafen's chemical plants Thursday night with their bomb bays crammed with 2,50 , lonjt^tons. of>ib]ockbustor»-and-*ia"- ' ccndiaries, one of the heaviest airborne loads of the war. Unfavorable weather conditions prevented an immediate asses- ment of the damage done last night in the fifth raid of the war on • Lwerkusen's chemical plants. The city was last hit on Aug. 22 Canadian formations played an important part in last night's assault, and a Hoyal Canadian air force com muniquo said that three of the five missing planes were Canadian. Berlin's blazing suburbs lit up the ;dark skies as the result of the Thursday night assault on that most" important of bombing targets, and reports to Sweden and London said chaos was evident in | the German capital. American Fortresses escorted by Thunderbolst attacked targets on western Germany by daylight yes terday and returned to their base without loss. Pilots said they did I not encounter a single enemy fight " cr and but little anti-aircraft fire The targets were not named in th U. S. communique and no explana tion was given for the mission. As last night's raid carried th current Allied air offensive I ^ New Heights, Maj. Gen. Willian E, Kcpner, chief of the U. S. Eight Air Force's fighter command, declared that "Now we have only to increase our bombers and support fighters proportionately and •m. concentrate against heavy industry *'• for Germany to crumble." Kcpner said the Allies had defeated the strategy of the German high command in the air. We have been outnumbered occasionally," he said, "but we have de* fcatcd them every time." He added that German "rocket" planes were not causing the Allies much worry, characterizing combat with rocket ships as a"holiday" for the American fighters. he grandson of that Lodge /recked American participation in ic League of Nations a quarter entury ago, I found Senator Lodge Hering this impressive caution ic American people: "Insofar as foreign opinion about the United States is concerned, there seem to be two impressions. One is an expecta- \.tian of gifts and favors from the United Statcs'wliich are far beyond our capacity to confer. The other is a fear, which I think is unreasonable, of the expansion of our foreign trade and of our world-wide aviation. "Again I was impressed with the dangers of overstatement and of making promises which are impossible of fulfillment. I submit once again that a clear, frank statement of national aims, based on national interest and guided by justice, wquld accomplish more , good for the world and would cause (ess hatred and disillusionmerit later on. In other words, there is no League of Nations as yet—and America alone is not going to deliver a quart of milk every day to every living person throughout the world, no matter what somebody may promise in the heat of war. That's what Lodge meant when he emphasized the phrase "national aims," as differentiated from loose- jointed international talk. All the more reason, therefore, to feel gratified at the outcome of the recent Moscow por'fercnce b:- twcen Britain, Russia and (he United States. It was a meeting of three national governments to outline, in the absence of any international framework, a dependable alliance for handling the post-war world . . . and, incidentally, to choke off irresponsible promising now that might lead to another war later on. Allies Strike at Jap Defenses Over Wide Area —War in Pacific By The Associated Press Growing Allied air power bom- nirdod Japanese defensive posi- ons over a great explosive arc tretching nearly a sixth of the fay around the world from the real naval base at Socrbaja, ava, to aerial outposts in the mid- 'acific Gilbert and Marshall slands. Allied dominance over the outer ringcs of Japan's southern defense vas indicated when army Libera- or bombers completed their sixth uccessive day of raiding Gilbert- Vlnrshall bases without the loss of i man or plane. In the newest thrust, carrier- based American planes poured 90 ons of bombs on Nauru, a third of the way down from the Gilbert- VTurshall group toward the Solo- nons. This raid completed a day's work Thursday that included an attack on Bctio island of Tarawa atoll of the Gilberts. While major fighting was limited to the New Guinea theater, the quickening American activity throughout the Pacific brought a warning to the Japanese home front. Hereafter, said Admiral Kichisaburo Nomura (the prc- Pearl Harbor "peace envoy" to Washington) America's counter-operations against Japan "with Anglo-American sea power as the root," will be "hastened and will steadily swell." The Nipponese military lent important emphasis to this fear by the reported withdrawal of heavy forces of seasoned troops from North China and:,Manchukuo, Chi-, nesc sources predicted they were headed for the Southwest Pacific. Allied soldiers advanced in bitter jungle fighting on the New Guinea land front as the air arm swung out in the most extensive campaign of the Pacific war. Radio Tokyo said Japanese forces at Satlclberg, New Guinea, had repelled an American tank- supported attack Tuesday. But General Douglas MacArthur announced that Australian fighters had advanced against enemy plateau positions only one mile from Salzclborg in, the battle to flank "Jap-held New Britain. Maj. Gen. Eugene Reybold, chief engineer of the U. S. army corps of Appropriations Cut Underway in Congress —Washington By The Associated Press Washington, Nov. 20 — Congress appeared ready today to take off on one of its periodical appropriation-slashing campaigns. Government spending for the war could be cut by $25,000,000,000 this fiscal year, in the opinion of Senator Russel (D-Ga), through careful congressional examination of all requests for appropriations. "The war plants are built and the machine is functioning smoothly, and now we have time that we didn't have before to examine appropriation requests carefully," Russell, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, commented.

The meat of wild )uffalo killed this morning is cook- ng in blackened pots over all the fires. Chinese with bren guns and longhaired natives with long, antiquated rifles aVid wide, flat-bladed cnives are standing guard on the camp defense perimeter. All the men here are wearing dirty clothes that were torn to shreds as they fought their way more than 10 miles through forgotten trails. We made our beds on freshly cut elephant grass with a low bamboo lean-to over our heads to protect us from the dew which falls like rain during the night from the tree tops. The natives circled the fire nearest to me cooking fish heads on a stick with hot wild peppers picked beside the river.
