Pine Bluffs Zebras State Grid Champs Liltle Rock, Nov. 26 l/I'i— Pine Bluffs Zebras emerged today as 1943 champions of the Arkansas high school conference after a slam-bang season that saw some surprisingly good wartime football and brought new attendance records in several cities. The Zebras clinched thc title in a routine Thanksgiving Day game down at Pine Bluff by polishing of an underdog Hope team 33-6. The win gave Pine Bluff a season record of seven wins nj-vnnsl one loss and one tic in conference competition. Hot Springs' Trojans, thc only eleven with a chance to tic the Zebras, fell completely outside the championship picture when they went down before thc powerful Fort Smith Grizzlies, 46-0 in the Western Arkansas city. Fullback Tommy Donoho went over for five touchdowns and scored three extra points for the Grizzlies.

In this instance at least Pearson i had his facts straight. At first the I War Department denied the Patton incident.

American troops of Lt. Gen. Mark W. Clark's Fifth Army smashed Iwo enemy thrusts west of Venafro as thc weather improved in thai sector of the Italian front. In thc air war American heavy bombers pounded rail facilities on two sides of thc Italian peninsula, hitting at Rccco near Genoa and at Rimini, on the Adrialic coasl. Meanwhile, it was announced lhat at least ten German bombers, including some big Heinkcl 177's were blasled out of thc sky early last night whcn a force of 30 Nazi planes atlackcd an Allied convoy In thc Mediterranean.

Mrs. Elster helped Nellie, in lieu of rent, and Mary was free to run and play. Mrs, Elster, with rest, good food and freedom from anxiety was very much stronget, and could do light work, and the sewing. Now and then when she had some free time Emily stopped in to see them. The Elsters, HUda and Gus, were only two of a dozen ?uch cases, with whom she kept in touch 4ong after- ber actual services were required, close togelher in age, 'all dirty. One, the oldest, was a leyeUeyed litlle girl of about ten, who kept patting her mother futilely, assuring her, "the nurse will take care of Timmy, won't you, nurse?" Timmy was in the back bedroom. He was five. He was an emaciated child with big brown eyes and a mop of curling red hair. He lay in a short, soiled nightshirt on the tumbled bed, and when Emily looked at him her heart sank. * * * "T.TAS he had a cold?" she asked, •*• • after a moment.

Roosevelt During the past year about 2,500,000 Bibles or portions have been dislribuU'd to U S armed forces. By CHARLES McMURTRY Pearl Harbor, Nov. 27 Of)— Lt. Jol. James Roosevelt of lhe U. S. marine corps paid high tribute today to the U. S. army landing forces on Butaritari island in the Makin atolls and added thai several natives whom he had mel on a previous expedilion lo lhe islands recognized him. Speaking on his landing with the firsl wave of lhe 165lh Infantry (the old fighting 69th) in the newly-conquered Gilberts on Nov. 20, he said several natives recognized him and "were they glad lo see us." It had been 15 months and three days since Jimmy, with Lt, Col. Evans F. Carlson's marine raiders, landed on Makin from a submarine and wiped out lhe Japs Ihere. He said lhe nalives were very helpful. They had buried lhe marines who were killed in last year's raid and kepi flowers on their graves. They haled lhe Japs, who had nol harmed them but refused to give them work or food. Speaking "as a marine about a completely army landing operation," Col. Roosevelt said it was entirely unlike th'e marine assaull on Tarawa, as Ihe army sent in tanks first and then followed them with lhe infantry. He said; (To "At 10:30 we made a frontal attack from the lagoon. We nil bc- Iween two tank traps. It was a daring move but entirely successful because our aerial support knocked out the Jap guns with direct hils. "Thc landings were headed by half-tracks, light tanks and medium tanks. Thc infantry came behind. The tanks did a marvelous job of cleaning out the beaches. The main rcsislance was from machine guns and snipers hidden in Iwo hulks beached in lhe lagoon. "Thc enemy's lank traps were beautifully constructed but our engineers threw up temporary bridges to span them." Roosevelt said thc resistance at Makin was less than al Tarawa. Roosevelt disclosed he was only three feel from lhe ICSlh's commander, Col. Gardiner Conroy, when Conroy was killed. Roosevelt said thai Conroy was so busy directing the atlack he forgol his own safety and stood "right in the open directing the movement." The heroic Conroy was shot squarely between lhe eyes. He said the soldiers made good progress the first day and on the second drove the Japs into a pock- el ugainsl their own artillery which was poinli'd ou lhe opposite direction. i'lwar, whcn Congress is swamped with its heaviest legislative log-jam since Ihis session started, Old Man Filibuster is just around the corner. Yep. It's the old anti-poll tax bill again — that now hardy perennial that crops up in,thc congressional garden almost every season. No sooner had thc bill been passed by thc House and reported favorably out of the Senate Judiciary Com- millce by a 12 to 6 vote than threats of a filibuster came from half a dozen quarters. Once ralher widely used by lhe slates as a. voting qualification, payment of a poll tax is now exacted in only eight stales — Alabama, ^Arkansas, (Georgia, Texas, Tennes"see, Mississippi, Soulh Carolina and Virginia. Since represenlalives in Congress of lhe olher 40 slales have liltle more than an academic or localized political interest in seeing it abolished or maintained, it's apparent that the only defense of the senators of those eighl slales is lo lalk lhe bill to dealh. Senate leaders, surveying the prospecl of long-winded floor bal- lle in lhe midsl of war, have been working hard behind the scenes 'to avoid it. Senator O-Mahoney <D- Wyo.) has introduced an anti-poll lax constitutional amendment: which would throw the'matter back to lhe voters. Observers, however, believe that the O'Mahoney resolution would have very litlle more chance of dodging the filibuster than the original bill. Faced with the certainly lhal lhe constitutional amendment would be passed, the poll tax advocates would be just as unwilling to put it up to the people. The real poll tax issue has been buried under a torrent of words. There are many sound arguments against it. In the lasl 30 or 40 years, Louisiana, Massachusells, Pennsly- vania and Florida have abolished poll laxes as a voling requirement At least two other states, Tennessee and Arkansas —have reportedly strong movements to do away with it. Why then, you ask, are poll taxevs so vigorous in their objections to letting it be abolished nationally? There's one good reason and for that reason thc poll taxcrs number in their ranks some widely recognized men of vision in governmental affairs. That is lhat the anti-poll tax bill would be one more step in Fedct-al infringement of stales' rights. Opponents of the poll tax frequently argue lhat it is an example of racial prejudice, denying the negroes pf the Soulh their consti- lulional right to vote. Proponents reply thai the tax is levied on whiles and negroes alike. Two Senators stormed recently thai lhe pending bill is the work of "the Communist party and also the radical hybrid American labor parly in the Democralic organiza- lion." The poll tax fight is older than both parties. Some opponents of the bill have publicly altributed it to the influence of Mrs. Roosevelt. These are examples of how confused the real issues have become. There arc scores of organizations and ten times that many influential individuals opposed to the poll tax. There arc many on lhe other side and some of them have never been allied wilh anylhing more "radical" than conservative stales' rights groups. And the poll tax row is older than all of them. Moscow, Nov. 27 (/P) — The German counter-offensive west of Kiev, which cost Hitler thousands of men and hundreds of tanks, has been brought lo a slandslill, il was announced today. For the past three days, the Nazis had made no real headway against the terrific wall of Russian resistance since the last Russian retreat on Tuesday, Nazi Marshal Von Mannstein had hurled allack after atlack al lhe Russian, first concentrating on the Zhitomir sector and then including the Korsten -sector, farther north. The Russians broke up each allack in lurn and firmly held Iheir ground. • In While Russia Red Army Iroops were pouring through the holes Ihey had lorn in lhe southern end of the Axis line on a broad front 170-miles long."TKe Red 'Army was culling ^down German slrag- glers as the bulk of the garrison once holed up in Gomel fled northwest toward the Baltic states and Poland.

Mr. Washburn discussed the his lory of apprenlices in business an industry, and recommended tha students read^the, Autobiography.o Benjamin Franklin, America printer, for an understanding^of apprenticeship in the United, States;;. and the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini, Italian goldsmith (1500-71), for an insight into the conditions faced by apprentices in the Old World; The speaker pointed out that of Ihe four Iruly great autobiographies in the whole world two miles from the vital road.

Continuing, Mr. Washburn observed -th'at while in olden limes'; an apprenlice learned his Irade and gol what schooling he could on lhe side, today's apprenlice is a person with considerable formal schooling. Of the students' part-time work in business and industry he said: "You are valiantly helping the war effort—3,000 young men have gone to the armed forces from Hempstead county, plus other thousands of men, women and girls who have left us to work in lhe war plants . . . leaving only a skeleton force of experienced workers, wilh your parl-lime help, to carry on essenlial lasks back home.
