American landings on Mak- Garawa and Abemama in the archipelago constitute the ringing challenge of the war I'ib'the Japanese navy to come out[ n a val protection ' have kept out of range. Early accounts of the battle of the Gilberts indicate that once more Admiral NimitZ has gathered a force capable of dealing with anything the enemy might be willing to offer. Battleships, aircraft carriers and cruisers supported the landings, and it is safe to assume that the concentration of American striking^ power in that area is more than sufficient to deal with any [eventuality or rise to any opportunity. The American thrust calls on the Japanese high command for a decision of terrible difficulty. Despite the great advantage of interior lines, far shorter than those of the United States and its allies, the Japanese simply do not possess enough naval strength to confront all the forces now gathering on the perimeter of their stolen domain ,with even approximate equality. To throw a force into the Central Pacific which would stand a fail- chance of victory over Nimitz' concentration there probably would call for drastically reducing the of the home A Mournful Melody, or, a Dud Dood It Again Mad fight.

Twenty-three months after Pearl' Harbor the strategic initiative has passed definiately from the perpetrators to the victims of that foul blow. The American eagerness for a showdown battle and the apparent Japanese desire, to postpone it as long as possible — perhaps even until the home islands are directly menaced —furnish an illuminating commentary on the vast changes of these 23 months. American productive capacity has dramatically altered the balance of power. The full extent of that miracle of production, organization and training remains the navy's own secret but there is no secret about the navy's confidence of the outcome should the two fleets meet now.

Most of the trade marked time to await outcome of the House vote on the anti-subsidy bill Barley lacked any recovery stimulus. Houses with cash connections were buyers of December wheat, with the best selling coming from locals. Locals also sold rye, along with commission houses, and on the decline of a cent a prominent operator bought all deliveries. Closing somewhat above the day's lowest levels, wheat was unchanged to 1 cent lower than yesterday's finish, with the far delivery at the extreme, December $1.63-1.62 7-8, May $1.60 3-4—7-8, and rye was down 1-8 to 3-4, December $1.17 1-2—5-8. Oats closed 1-4 off to 18 up and barley finished with a loss of 1 3-8 to 1 7-8. Cash wheat none. Corn, sample yellow 89. Oats, No. 2 mixed 85; No. 2 white 86 3-4; No. 3 white 85; sample grade white 6769. Barley, malting 1.30—1.45 nom. NEW YORK STOCKS New York, Nov. 23 (/P) Buying timidity continued as a brake on today's stock market and, while scattered issues managed to register mild improvement many lead-» ers failed to emerge from the losing column. Blame for speculative . and investment indifference was placed mainly on Wall Street's expectations that, with the all-out bombing of Berlin and other Axis centers, important news developments were in the making abroad. .Irregularity, predominant at the opening, remained near the close. Dealings were slack throughout, transfers of around 50,000 shares were among the smallest for a full session in about two months. Secondary railway bonds exhibited forward inclinations. Thanksgiving Service at Baptist Church The Annual City-wide Thanksgiving Service will be held in the First Baptist Church auditorium Thursday morning at 10:00 o'clock. The service will be sponsored by the Hone Ministerial Alliance, and the Rev. Robert B. Moore, pastor of the First Methodist Church, will preach the sermon. The program of the Thanksgiving service follows: Doxology Invocation, Rev. W. R. Hamilton Hymn, "Onward Christian Soldiers" Scripture, Rev. H. B. Smith Prayer, Rev. Thomas Brewster Special Music, First Baptist Choir Offering and Prayer of Dedication Hymn, "Faith of Our Fathers" Sermon, Rev. Robert B. Moore Benediction The general public is cordially invited to attend this service of thanksgiving, praise, and intercession. The service is planned to be held within an hour. Unless Draft Act Is Vetoed McNutt to Quit Washington, Nov. 23 — (IP) Paul V. McNutt was described today as so steamed up" that he will quit as manpower commissioner unless President Roosevelt vetoes the new father draft act. Thc bill sent to thc White House by the Senate on a voice vote yesterday strips McNutt of authority over selective service. H also is designed to slow down or halt the draft of pre-war fathers but officials indicated It would not bring about any radical changes in present induction procedures. McNutt formaly told the Senate that the legislation sabotaged "sound administration." One senator declared he had heard the manpower chief was "so steamed up about this that he has indicated he would resign if thc president signs the bill." ' McNutt declared in his letter to the Senate that thc bill would "ser- ously weaken the manpower pro- jrarn" by divorcing military and clvlian manpower authority. . "The proposed amendment is a sabotage of sound administration," ne wrote. He said "very real progress" had been made in the last year toward a unifired manpower program and added: "The provisions authorizing the president to delegate the selective service authority to thc director of selective service only would tear apart the relationship which has been established and would seriously weaken the manpower program." McNutt said that Director Lewis B. Hershey of selective service had recommnded the list of "non deferrable" jobs from which men were inducted without regard to family dependencies. He added that "the opposition has been engaged in creating a public impression that thc non-deferrable list was 'imposed' upon selective service by the War Manpower Commission or by me personally." This so-called "work or fight" order of the WMC ..would be nullified by thc bill, which also provides: That fathers of children born before Sept. 15, 1942, shall not be drafted until all available single men in the country have been inducted. This "national pool" plan was regarded by Senator Johnson (D-Colo) as likely to postpone the drafting of some fathers for two or three months. An "escape" clause provides that the induction plan shall not be allowed to interfere with the "orderly flow" of manpower to the armed forces. That a five-member medical commission shall review physical and mental standards of the services to determine if they can be lowered with a view to bringing more 4F's into uniform. Allied Landings Just Beginning Says Knox Washington, Nov. 23 M 1 ) — Landings by American marines on three islands in the Gilbert group were described by Secretary of the ARKAN9ANS PROMOTED Washington, Nov. 23 —(/I 3 ) The War Department announced today the temporary promotion cif Benjamin Fishburn Witccll, 1704 Spring St., Little Rock, from captain to major. Throe other army officers from Arkansas were advanced temporarily. They were John Thoron to begin- Navy Knox today as the ning of n new campaign against Japan from the Central Pacific on a much more direct route toward Japan." lie said two principal strategic objectives were ahead in the campaign, first to drive the Japanese out of the mandated islands and a second to shorten by hundreds of miles Amercian supply lines to the Southwest Pacific. When the marines gained control after battling the Japs from Tara- I wa, Makin and Abemama, the supply lines, Knox said, can be> drawn on a much shorter and more direct line. The effect of the shortened supply route, lie said, will be the same as adding many ships to the job of carrying men and supplies to the Southwest Pacific. It will enable the ships to make a quicker "turn ' around," thus increasing the number of trips each can make. Knox pointed out that a campaign "of this sort" could be started only with tremendously strong sea and air power, stating that strength is available in the Central Pacific. The navy secretary said both Tarawa and Makin were "badly mauled" by bombing planes before the marines moved in. He described as "diversionary" aerial attacks at the same time on enemy positions in the nearby Marshal Murray, 52122 Woodlawn Ave., Lit tie Rock, from 1st lieutenant to captain, and Mercer Wolff, Dumas, and Joseph Arnold Arducngo, Hail ey, from 2nd lieutenant to 1st lieutenant. islands. As one result of these diversionary attacks, very little air opposition was encountered by American forces hitting at the islands in the Gilberts. "No elements of the enemy fleet have been seen," Knox said. "The attack has not as yet pulled the Japs out of shelter." He added that the nearest enemy fleet strength presumably is at Truk, major Japanese base in that part of the Pacific. USE 666 TABLETS. SALVE.

Washington By JACK STINNETT Washington —This war has marie a host oi heroes — military, diplomatic and industrial — but I doubt if there is another on the war scene who has crowned his long public service with such an achievement as Secretary of State Cordell Hull. Although it isn't generally Hull's baby from the outset. Hardly had the thunder of bombs at Pearl Harbor died away than the idea was born with Hull that the United States, England, Russia and perhaps China, should get together for an eximation of aims and objectives and finally to sign and deliver a pact that would make those objectives known to the warring world. He nursed that idea through a dozen diplomatic mases, through that black period when the fall of all Western Russia seemed just around a Stalingrad corner. He overcame the hurdles of indifference, animosity, and fear of failure, which leaders pf all the nations involved felt at one tirne or another conference which he had been mulling over for a year and a half, Hull climbed into a plane that flew him to Puerto Rico; took ship for Casablanca and flew again across Africa, up the Levant an'd into Moscow. According to reports from Moscow, it was the verbal bull's-eyes from "the last of our log-cabin statesmen" that'often knocked out the conference obstacles. That is believable. It's an accepted fact now that the Soviet Union doesn'1 like diplomatic double-talk. Hull doesn't know any. To say that Secretary Hull has been Washington's man of the hour Since he landed at the National Airport is to use a trite phrase but a true one. If ever a president wen 1 out from the White House to gree one of his return cabinet members Roosevelt did when Hull i.'ame home, none here ever heard of it When Congress discussed a res olution asking Hull to appear for a report on the conference, the chie objection to it was that someone perhaps Hull himself, might reai into it an implied summons whicl might be construed as discourte ous. If ever before Congress ha been so tender in its approach to a member of the cabinet, it's not in the records. At 72, Cordell Hull has written himself a page in t'-.e history books, which will be far better reading than the footnote he otherwise would have gotten President Roosevelt's Secretary of State, who plugged away for those reciprocal trade treaties which apparently had no appreciable effect in stemming Jj3f..t.ide of World War IL Dogs offered to the army must pass a physical test and they frequently are turned down for defective t£^t|»,^eyes or ears.

Yet, tonight— She was unhappy, he decided, that was all. Well, he could wait until it passed. He knew from experience, he told, himself, that it would pass. And meantime they could be good friends. He asked, suddenly, as if he had been thinking aloud, "You know that, don't you?". ''Know what? Golly, you scared me.. I was half asleep." "Sorry. I thought I'd been talking to you all along. I meant, you know I'm your friend." "Of course," said Nancy sleepily. "This is fun, Jim, let's do it often. There's no reason why I can't go out on these early night calls with you. I love it." Perhaps, after all, she wouldn't be such a bad wife for a doctor, he thought, happily. (To Be Continued) T. C.

He had been diagnosed as a medical case thc week previously, but had refused to leave the front and continued on through the strain of battle. He finally was ordered to thc hospital by his unit doctor. After Palton left, the soldier demanded to return to the front. This request was refused at the time but after a week of rest, he was in good shape and returned to his Sicilian drive said: "When these things are happening a cqmmanding general is under great nervous tension. He may do things he may afterward regret. I know a yrcat many people regard me as a But I have patted five soldiers on the back ior everyone I have spoken a harsh word to. I dealt harshly with a couple of soldiers and was wrong. I am going to apologize .to them." The incident reflected thc character of Palton a general who drives both himself and his men to the very limit in battles, who is highly emotional at times and is given to outbursts when under strain. But he is regarded by many officers as the best field general in unit at thc front. Immediately after the incident thc soldier was reported in a miserable state. As a regular army man with pride in his record, he felt his whole world dashed to pieces. Don't tell my wife!

The chaplain at the hospital however pointed out that the incident was thc result of an outburst of temper due to the strain of battle and, after several conversations with the soldier, persuaded him to accept it in that light. The incident was reported to Eisenhower. Thc commander-in- cfcicf immediately wrote Patton a letter in which he denounced his conduct and ordered him to make amends, or be removed from his command. ' "The old man certainly took the hide off him," an Allied headquarters spokesman said. Pal.ton's conduct then became as generous as it had been furious. He apologized to thc soldier whom he had struck, to the commander of the hospital and to all those present at the time. the American army. ' II is. generally.believed here by military men that Sicily would never: have-,been conquered in 38 days'had.'it riot been for Patlon's driving 1'di'ce. His value as a general was one reason why his case was dealt with it as it was. While many soldiers under Pallon.'s command may not have much affection for him. they all re spcet him as a great general anc have confidence in him as a com mander. Patton himself clocsn' 1 care whether they like him or no —he regards his job as winning battles. A headquarters announcemen yesterday had said: "Gen.
