It caused more conversation, spoken aloud or whispered ;both .among officers and enlisted men, than the .capture of Messina ending the Sicilian campaign. . Frankly, there was considerable bitterness, but it was not drawn on the question of r^ank. -Patton's action was deplored by his officers as much as by his men, I heard only one man defend the .general's deed. He was a lieutenant, and he said: ."It would do this army good if a few more men were clouted over |the head now and then." There is ;this to be said for Patton: He was under great strain. The .incident took place between two amphibious landings, which cracked the German line along the north coast of Sicily. In deciding on trying the landings, Patton knew he was gambling with hundreds of lives. No pressure could be greater. Then, too, he was quoted afterward as saying he had hoped his outburst would snap the soldier back into shape. •Mikhail: "You look positively beauuiul tonight." ..Elsie: "Oh, you flatterer!" • Mikhail: "No, it's true. I had to •lopk twice before I recognized By FRANK I. WELLER Washington, Nov. 22 —(/P)—Fear of the FBI counterspy caused Hit- to warn his new espionage-sabotage graduates . . . "Do not arouse suspicion of the G-men!" He doesn't want this gang to meet the fate of his early underground agents in the U.S.A. German plans went into a tailspin when G-men secretly operated with Hitler's' first spies and about all he got was a mess of misinformation. His agents had the dope all right, but it was FBI-doctored when it reached Germany and caused more harm than good. It's almost an Edgar Allen Poe story the way G-men captured 33 ranking members of the dangerous Frederick Dquesne spy ring in York. J. Edgar Hoover says that never is espionage history did a country stand to lose more than this one. All of DuQuesne's crew were master spies. They were planted in war factories, shipyards, within the armed forces and in some government bureaus in- Washington. They had details for firing ships, including the French liner Normandie (which later burned accidentally), accurate details on Chrysler tank production, airplane production, the Ford plants, defense Her gang had rounded up an amazing amount of factual information on munitions and airplane factories, military and naval bases, helium .gas, and the cargo and sailing dates of convoys. All this she turned over secretly to FBI for "doctoring" and devious dispatch to Hitler. The Guyula Rozinek case is considered typical of hundreds of individual espionage-sabotage arrests. Rozinek was a captain in the German army but no one knew it in the west coach chemical plant that hired him. Ke -misgued \vlu:n a fellow worker badgered him into yelling: "Hitler is my Fuehrer and my God! All Europe wi'il bo fr«:c when he wins." J. 'Edgar Hoover says this FBI spying on spies is just like setting a,rat trap. He baits it by pretending not to know anything about the spy and all the time secretly siphoning the clanger out of his doings. "Better," says he, "to deal with the devil you know than with the devil you don't know, meaning that a new spy might be harder to catch than the one who is known and can be picked up anytime. Instead of swatting the hornet's nest with a single blow, the FBI collars spies one by one as they become dangerous.

Nancy, she thought dully, whom she loved very much, had become her enemy. It isn't my fault, Emily thought, refusing to let the tears fall. Other plans? Which included Jim? ButNancy wasn't the woman for Jim, she would hurt him, she would ruin him. She wouldn't, consciously, perhaps, but the damage would be done just the same. And there's nothing I can do, Emily thought, nothing. Nothing anyone could do. Nancy tearing the snapshots of Drew Warner into fine pieces was thinking that, loo. She Ihought, serves Emily right.

Outwardly things were litllc changed. Jim had settled to his routine, he and David Hall Worked together in complete amity nml understanding. Almost every fine evening Nancy went out with Jim on his early calls and waited for him in his car. The car had i\ radio and she amused herself while he was gone. They would come home and raid the ice box. Sometimes Doctor Hall insisted on taking the early calls himself and giving Jim an opportunity to get off to the beach or the club with Nancy and her crowd. Frank was a constant caller, dogged, determined. Emily, tired of .battling him, went now and then lo Ihe club or beach with him, occasionally Jim and Nancy were with them. II looked to tnc rest of Cranberry like a very settled foursome. Even Elsie Edgar wns aware of it. "You know, Mllicent," she told her friend, "I've always preferred Nancy but Emily's a nice girl and I've always liked her. Of course I would never sland in Frank's way. I'd like him lo marry, and settle down." She added that she had a special place for Nancy in her heart because she had always reminded her of the little girl whom the Edgars had lost many years ago. "Emily is so serious." added Elsie, a large, vital woman, "and I'm serious enough as it is. Nancy's the sort of girl I need around that gloomy old house.

They compared the situation with that in London the night of May .10, 1941, when it was generally agreed if the German bombers had returned the next night the chaos would have been virtually unbearable. The May 10 raid on London was scarcely one-fifth the force of Monday night's assault on Berlin. In relatively clear weather some Nnzi night fighters were up last night but even Ihcy were fewer than usual in raids on Berlin, RAF pilots said. Fires from Monday night's attack could be seen 50 miles away >y pilots returning to the target a cconcl,time.

Lewis declared today the miners are "not interested" in an agreement with halt the industry. Refusal of the Southern Coal Producers Association to sign on a portal to portal basis and the absence of the Captive (steel company) mine operators from the wage conference appeared to be the principal obstacles to a contract that would be virtually national in scope. Conferees agreed to resume their discussions forthwith. The AFL progressive mine workers and a representative of their employers in Illinois meanwhile submitted a tentative wage agree ment to the War Labor Board. The contents were not divulged. The contract offered to Lewis is substantially the Ickes - Lewi agreement under which the mines are now operating, plus the $40 re1 reactive payment for undergroun travel time. Edward R. Burke, president o the Southern Producers, said his group would sign a contract that would assure equivalent earnings, but he declines to pay the money on a portal to portal basis and wants eight hours of productive work assured instead of "assumed" as is provided in the Ickes-Lewis agreement. "The group I represent," said Burke, "is unalterably opposed to a contract that would inflict on I he industry a portal to portal arrangement, beyond, the period of government control." A portal to portal day is based on the time a miner enters the mine until he leaves it, rather than on actual productive hours. The Ickes-Lewis portal to portal agreement assumes an average of 45 minutes travel time per man per day. In some mines traveling con sumes more than 45 minutes and the actual production hours therefore are reduced in direct proportion to the increase in travel time.

Women of H OP E A Message from Your Governor Throughout the history of America, men and women of Arkansas have never failed to answer the call of service to their country.
