Warren Barbour, New Jersey Republican, opponent of Mayor Frank Hague of Jersey City, millionaire thread manufacturer and one - time amateur heavyweight boxing champion. Barbour, who was 55, succumbed to heart disease last night after a brief Illness in his Washington home. His death followed within 24 hours the fatal injury of Rep. J. William Ditter (R-Pa) in an airplane crash and the death from heart disease of Rep. Henry B. Steagall (D-Ala). Barbour was appointed to the Senate in January 1932 to succeed the late Dwight W. Morrow.

The death of the New Jersey senator leaves the senate with 57 democrats, 37 republicans and one progressive. Gov. Charles A. Edison of New Jersey, a Democrat, will appoint a temporary successor to serve until next November's election. At the age of 22 Barbour had j 'ought as an amateur boxer and was billed as the "milionaire kid." He gave up the ring at the request of his mother but remained an ardent sportsman, spending much of his leisure time, up to his recent illness, in golfing, boating and riding. His large frame won him the reputation of being the senate's "biggest man." His death, coming so closely after that of Ditter and Steagall, recalled the warning of Dr. George Calver, capitol physician a few weeks ago that congress was overworked and tired, and that it was severely taxing its health by not taking a recess. from a guy who should know: Pete Cawthon, the grid Dodgers' coach, argues that the other Green Bay players ought to chip in part of their salaries to raise Don's pay . .

Why I even hear Lombar- clo, the quarterback and the slowest guy on the squad, can knock off lhal hundred in only a lilllc over ten seconds. Even if I wanted to feel better about the whole thing, how can I when my scouts keep bringing things like this up? "In my book, this is the best Army team since Elmer Oliphant and Gene Vidal led Ihe Army parade in 1916. Even the '26 club, with Red Caglc and Light Horse Harry Wilson and Blondic Saundcrs and Ed Garbisch — a pretty fair outfit, incidenlaly — wasn't as good as the speed demons there now. "And just remember Brown (George Brown, Navy guard from San Diego, Calif., and one of the year's top colcgiale linemen) didn't have a uniform on in three weeks until yesterday's practice. He's been suffering from a cough and cold."

She collapsed in her mother's arms as the jury foreman read the verdict. Tearfully, the girl told the jury she was forced to submit to Durant under threats he would kill her and her mother, - Mary said she recalled shooting Durant as he slept last Dec. 4 and burying him in a shallow grave in their back yard at Calico Rock. Durant's body was unearthed last April 4 by a dog digging in the yard. Murder charges were filed against Mary and her mother, Mrs. Armanda Durant, 44.

H. WASHBURN The Name Is 'Arkansawyer' Last week-end the Arkansas Democrat published some correspondence between a Little Rock attorney and the United States Board on Geographical Names which gave official :redence to "Arkansawyer" rather than "Arkansan" as the [name of our citizens. House Believe Ready to Pass Revenue Bill Nazis Fail lo Gains Place 8th Break Positions Army Only 79 Washington, Nov. 24 — (fi>) — |Blocking amendments from the 7 floor to a $2,140,000,000 new rove- |nue measure, the House moved to- lday toward approval of a wartime Hax program far short of the $10,1500,000,00 asked by the adminis-' Kration to combat inflation and meet military costs. Rep. Voorhis (D-Calif) asserted Congress should dip deeper into the nations' pockctbook, but the House decided by a standing vole of 208 to 7 to consider only the question of rejecting or accepting the bill as it was drafted by the Ways and Means Committe'c. The procedure; preventing a wide-open battle on the floor over scvcriil controversial points, especially increases in some excise taxes, was accepted over the protests of some members that it constituted a "gag" rule. Rep. Robert Lee Doughlon, 80- j'enr-old chairman of the powerful Ways and Mcnns committee, led off a bi-parlisan chorus against large tax increases. declaringUicv, ^6t!ia*tfc' H mor&" ; gfifslVlnf ''than in* f In lion. "Too heavy a tax burden is as great a danger to the nation's economy as is loo large n.public debt," he said. "Certainly we should not pass on to future taxpayers, many of whom will be our returning soldiers, debts that we ourselves should pay, but neither should we pass on to them a business structure so weakened by heavy taxes that it will be unable to carry on in the post war period. When this wai'i has been won we want the bus- ines's'jand industry of the nation in a condition which will enable it to offer the greatest measure of opportunity and employment." Doughton joined Rep. Knutson of Minnesota, Ways and Means Re publican leader, in attacking the administration's claim that a $10,500,000,000 tax program is essential not only for war-financing but also lo drain off inflationary purchasing power. "In our opinion (speaking for Republicans) this additional burden would liquidate the great middle class, which is the bulwark of the nation," Knutson declared in a prepared address. "It svould threaten the future solvency of all business, imperil savings, and jeopardize the postwar continuance of private enterprise. From now on, the motto promulgated by the great spender, Harry Hopkins, 'tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and elect,' is out." The second warliin.e bill, supported by both parties, makes but little revision in the burdens on Individual incomes or on corporation normal and surtaxes. No change is made in the 20 per- Your cdilor has written in favor -®of "Arkansawyer" on many occa- i sions. We usually cited three facts: 1. That "Arkansawyer" was Ihe historic name for the people of Arkansas, just as its traditional designation was "Bear Stale." Modernists came along, however, changed it to "Wonder State," and changed the people's name lo "Arkansans." , 2. The name "Arknnsawycr" is stilliperpelualcd by Ihe daily paper at Stuttgart, named in the old- •fasKloncd way, "Daily Arkan- sawyer." 3. The word Arkansawyer leaves 'no doubt but lhat our stale's name is pronounced ArkanSAW. Bui Ihc word Arkansan implies that our .state's name really is ArKANsas, which is incorrect.

The capture of Alfedena, approx^ imately 70 airline miles southeast of Rome on the road to the Italian capital, was the result of a gain of more than five miles beyond Rio r nero in recent days during which Gen.

That very condition is to be found today on the hog market. OPA had set a Chicago base price of S14.75 per hundredweight on live hogs. Although the mere act of set- ling a price of any kind on hogs or anything else is a fundamental violation of the law of supply and demand, in this case it was considered all right by the hog raisers because it guaranteed them a fail- return on their labor and feed costs and an inducement lo go ahead and raise a lol of pigs, for which there was a heavy demand justifying this price. Pig Problem But now it happens thai all Ihe pig raisers, having brought their hogs lo market weight during the summer, offer them for sale about ihe same lime. The slaughter houses are jammed. They can't kill and process the pork fast enough to clear their pens. So, in an effort to make the farmers hold their hogs off the market, the packers cut the price $1 a hundredweight, following the hallowed old law of supply, and demand. This causes the hog raisers lo squeal louder than the proverbial Iwo pigs under the gate, and naturally. The law of supply and demand under such circumstances is the most unpopular and unwanted law rjf the land, even if it were divine enough to be considered an eleventh cummandmenl. No. what's wanted, obviously, is just a law of supply and demand that will work one way only—al ways to give the seller the best end of the bargain. That is the seller's conception of the law of supply and demand. The buyer's conception o a good law of supply and demanc is something that will always rook the seller. kept mobile forces out of action in lhat sector but Ihc Russians pressed Iheir offensive over haslily improved roads which permitted heavy artillery to move with the troops. Red Star said Bragin, 65 miles soulhwesl of Gomel, was caplured by forces which penelralcd deep enejrny defenses through swamps. In/the Rechitsa sector just north of Bragin, Izvestia reported German tanks rolling westward under Russian pressure while Soviet planes constantly strafed the German ground troops.

Near the mouth of the Garigliano, British troops of the Fifth Army clashed with a big German patrol, inflicling heavy casualties al a cost of only one man wounded. Simultaneously, heavy artillery duels flared on part of the Fifth Army front. In the Venafro-Pozzilli area, German guns opened up with a thunderous bombardment Monday night, reports from Lt. •Gen. Mark W. Clark's headquarters disclosed. Concentrations of ' American batteries promptly laid down a highly-effective counterfire, knocking out some enemy batler- ies. Gen.

The action was taken, Reynolds said, al suggcslion of Senators Bridges (R-NH) and Johnson (D- Coloi and was concurred in by all members present. Reynolds told a reporter he personally believed any action against Patlon, who was rebuked by Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, should be left in the hands of army authorities. He said, however, there is likely to be much Senate dicsussion of the affair before action is taken or Patton's promotion. "I think a general can gel jus as war-weary and develop just as frayed nerves as a private soldiei and there may have been some extenuating circumstances in Gen eral Patlon's case lhat we don' know about," Reynolds said.

Alfedana was taken without a fight. Days before, columns of smoke curled up from the. stricken town and it was obvious then that the Germans there realized their position was hopeless and must be abandoned. A number of other towns and villages in this _same mountain area have been similarly devastated preparatory to evacuation. The roads from Alfedena on, however, are dominated by continuous mountains and progress along them is likely to be slow. Chetniks Gain Control of Montenegro London, Nov. 24 — (IP) — Gen. Draja Mihailovic said today his Yugoslav Chetniks "have now ;ained- control of the entire coun- ry of Montenegro." This mountainous little province las been the center of intense guerrilla activity for months—with "he Chetniks and the Partisans of 3en. Josip Broz (Tito) fighting each other as well as the Germans.

Southwest Pacific Allied Headquarters, Nov. 24 (/P) — Allied bombers and fighters making their latest visit to the Gasmata area on New Britain have plastered Japanese air and supply bases with 14S tons of bombs, the heaviest load yet. The Monday raid, announced by General Douglas MacArthur today; brought to 329 tons the total imounl of bombs dropped there in hree consecutive days. It was the outslanding punch de- ivered during Ihe day by Allied airmen who visited 11 enemy lo- calilies, in all, leaving a, total of 275 tons of explosive calling cards. The latest attack on the Gas- mata sector made by more than 10 bombers and fighters, was directed al Ihe airdrome on Agur island and installalions at Linden- hafen. The fliers spiced it with a muchinegun strafing, using 35,000 rounds of ammunition. They left numberous fires and heavy damage. Once again, as in the previous two raids, there was no enemy interception. Ground fire, however, brought down one Allied plane. Air raiders left their second larg- esl bomb load of Ihe day, 52 tons, on an enemy airdrome at Cape Gloucester, on the western IJji o) New Britain.

Berlin already was chaotic from history's greatest aerial attack delivered 24 hours before when the new deluge of Allied bombs struck last night. Berlin correspondents of Swedish newspapers said new fires and tacks on the German capital made j were destroyed or damaged on the ground. No mention was made of fight ing in the Satlelberg area on northeastern New Guinea, where Australian troops and tanks have been advancing slowly against Nipponese entrenched on a plateau. The communique said Japanese com- muncation lines in the vicinity were hammered from the air with 21 tons of bombs and strafing attacks. Torpedo planes and dive-bombers, with fighter escort, struck, at Buin on the southern tip of Bougainville island in the Solomons, it clear that wholly aside from physical damage to either the administrative center or the large | war industries in the suburbs, the j new aerial drive bulked as the j war's greatest offensive against j enemy morale. Berlin as Ihe nation's capital has a sentimental attachment for every German and the beating it is tak- .ing is a symbolic blow to all Germany.
