Destruction of the German capital from the air will be a military and psychological coup unique in \var. Smaller cities have been wiped out, but nothing approaching this Vast metropolis of four millions. ...'.': i *- Today for the first time the Hit- lerites admit British and Ameri- gS4h bombers may'"lay/, all Berlin wafte.". George Schroeder,, chief co-respondent of Europa Press, who writes under Nazi Propaganda Minister Joe Goebbels' direction, "ifiinces no words m conceding the 'grim prospect. The devil himself, being about f ready to exact the price for the " bill of goods he sold Henchman Hitler, must have smiled grimly when he'fead in the Fuehrer's own newspaper, "Voelkischer Beobachter," '''ah item of gloomy finality, advising the people of the stricken city how to write their last wills and >*etnments. wnen you stop to think about it, ' that's one of the most remarkable • litjle news dispatches to come out of the war. It certainly is close to being a gesture of desperation which fits well with the declara- " tior. by Britain's two-fisted bomber thief,,'Air Marshal Sir Arthur Harris, that the holocaust which is sweeping the German capital is "the last lap of the race." But we mustn't conclude from all this that the end is at hand. Air Marshal Harris doesn't claim this. He just says it's the last lap, and doesn't predict how long the lap will be. Berlin is to be bombed airitil it is dead. W^uld the death of Berlin mean •theVend of the war? Not necessarily, but it's difficult to see how j;the German machine . could keep f^-going long with its capital smashed —-for Berlin, quite apart frorn. sentiment, is literally the heart of the Reich. It not only is one of the *-g}-eatest industrial areas in the country, but it's the hub of the European railway system. Cripple Berlin and you've thrown a monkey wrench into Hitler's entire continental set-up. Moreover, the destruction of the capital, with its awful death roll, would be'one of the ficercest blows public morale could receive. Dr. Robert Ley, leader of the Nazi labor front, declares: "We shall never surrender. An eye for ah eye and a tooth for a tooth. Defiance and revenge." Propaganda Minister Goebbels takes a similar but more fiery line in promising heavy reprisals against Britain. Likely revenge will be attempted by the Hitlerits, and they say in- j deed have a new "secret weapon" which they boast. I ithink we should also be prepared to. see the reprisals take some barbaric form. However, the Germans ho longer have within their power any reprisal which would win them the war, no matter how devilish the revenge might be. As a matter of fact, while desire for revenge can be a powerful emotion/the slogan of "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" doesn't provide \he flaming sword of leadership needed by the Germans or any other civilized peoples. You've got to. have more inspiration than just "revenge" to win world wars, and any government which tries to sustain public morale on that will come a cropper. That's been one of Hitler's greatest, weaknesses since the start of his attempt.to conquer the world— lack of any high and inspiring purpose? His only justification for his aggression has been that might is right — and he had the might, takes more than that to sustain a great nation as destruction rushes on it. .

But an even more history- 'making event of worldwide scope— involving war and peace—was viewed here as possible in the light of rumors that China's generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek might were said to have moved well along toward their first objectives, and at last reports the two bridgeheads were about eight miles apart. : The artillery action on the Fifth Army front, appeared partly due to German nervousness, especially in the position beyond Venafro, the last mountain landlock to the plain reaching -toward Rome. The high ground occupied by the Americans was slightly east of there. While planes of the Tactical Air Force threw all the strength they had into support of the offensive at the front, breaking up four waves of 40 German aircraft sent out to attack Eighth Army units, American medium bombers launched a arge-scale assault on" Dubrovnik, Slbenik and Zara, three German- -.eld ports in Yugoslavia across the Adriatic. Seven separate waves of Mitchells hit Zara where fires and explosions raged in the inter harbor, rained bombs on five or six ships a.t Sibenik where the biggest attack of all was carried out, and hit a merchant ship, docks and military stores at Dubrovnik. A bridge at Zara also was bombed, and at Sibenik a vessel was seen to explode and flames shoot from other ships and quays. Southern African Spitfires shot up two trains between Dubrovnik and Metkovic.

I became frightened and i went to the Metairie country day school nearby, where I formerly was a student. I told Mr. Ralph Boothby, headmaster at the school what 1 had done." Odom said later the boy changed his story and said he "lost control of himself" and strangled his companion "purposely." Odom said death was due to strangling. Dr. Harold Cummins, the boy's father, said his son enlisted in the navy States shortly after the United entered the war, and that he was given a medical discharge about eight months ago. His father said the youth saw duty in the South Pacific. Upon his discharge from the pavy young Cummins resumed his studies at the Metairie school, and was graduated in June.

Adams, county agent. Supplies of each fertilizer plant food arc allocated by the government to each fertilizer manufacturer on a monthly basis. If the manufacturer cannot use his allocation for one month, he loses it. Since most manufacturers are limited on storage space, mixed fertilizer must be moved out about as fast as new materials are received. Once the storage space is filled, the plant usually quits operating until supplies are moved out. Even if the manufacturer could store all the fertilizer he will prepare, transportation from the plant to the farm may be so limited next spring that farmers cannot get fertilizer on time if they wait until then to buy. Consequently, early buying will not only mean getting fertilizer on time, but it actually will mean more fertilizer for Arkansas farmers. During the present fertilizer season, fertilizers will be manufactured and sold under the regulations of the War Food Administration contained in order WAR AREA PROBLEMS . i Fayetteville, Nov. 20(fl'i—Pulaa rumors a s.xth person represent- j ki Lonoho , j o f fo rson, Dcisha nn\ ,ng Germany in some capacity not I should be regarded yet clear m.ght s,t in , .

Crack Crews Trained Months Before Blasting Nazi Dams By RICHARD tOMPKINS Boston, Nov. 29 (/P) — The Broaching of the Ruhr valley dams by the RAF last May is history; now comes the story behind that jlow — the months of preparation, | experiments that failed, the production of the "missile" that un- eashcd the torrents, precision fly- ns and the infinite patience of a quiet, painstaking scientists and Britain's most experienced bomber pilot. The story is told in the December Atlantic monthly by Wing Commander Guy P. Gibson, who trained the men who "probably knew more about the art of bombing than any other squadron in the world," and led the attack. Gibson, the most decorated man in the British army, received the Victoria Cross for the exploit. Me has been scheduled to go on leave when he was ordered to form a squadron of the best crews in the bomber command to carry out "the most damaging blow of the war." When he got his squadron together 1ST dtid a General Sherman Train for Attack and women worked throughout the day and the night making these I things which we were to carry with us over to Germany to be dropped in the Mohnc lake." "these things" and "missiles" are as close as dibson comes to describing the explosive device used to blast the dams.) Night and day the squadron flew low-level, up and down lakes in Scotland, the Midlands and in Wales. One of the hardest problems, Gibson says, was "to fly at exactly 4f> loot, not 44 feel or 40 feet, but 45 feet" over the water. He goes on: "It was obvious that our missiles ould have to bo dropped with xtrcmc accuracy within literally a matter of feet of a certain spot. And it was necessary also to fly ast; otherwise the operation be- ame loo hazardous to allow foi ic possibility of success." After two months of continuous ard training, involving 150 hours f flying for each person, Gibson LA.

Washington By JACK STINNETT ........... Washington — The recently announced resignation of Charles E.

However, the fact that Wilson is going back to General Electric isn't really a part of the picture. Government officials who are worried about the thinning ranks of business executives in the war effort arc in complete accord with Wilson's move.

No business man who has come to Washington has made u bigger success of his job than Wilson.' As No. 2 man in W.P.B., given a free rein by Chairman Donald Nelson, he snipped through red lane and brought order out of chaos in airplane and convoy escort production. The machinery in his department is running so smoothly that it would be hard for anyone to mess it up. Wilson's case is an exception. The back-to-private-induslry movement generally is much more com- jjlicated and the reasons for it are several.

With every i success of our armed forces; with i every -prediction for an early end i of the war, this pressure gets great- < er. This is only natural. Business i men arc aware that the industries | unprepared for reconversion are likely to leave a trail of bankruptcies. But it is none the less uhirm- ing to government ofncials, for each departing executive takes with him lesser employee who iii-e just as eager to gel their feet solidly planted on peacetime ground That leaves great gaps which at this late dale cannot be filled. A second reason is thai unless lhe administration moves quickly to designate the demobilization and conversion machinery, a great many business executives here will feel that their wartime job | is done. There already have been I lumore that Nelson has his mind made up to resign unless lhe Pres idenl designates W.P.B. as the agency to handle conversion. The appointment of Bernard M. Baruch to report on this has brought 'up the question of whether he svill head the agency which will deal with the reconversion to civilian production. 1C that should be true, W.P!B. j officials and a good many others j want to get out now.

COLBERT IAITO Lost Times Today Joel McCrea Ruth Pickard Much Praised as a Pianist Ruth Pickard, whose piano re cital is scheduled for Friday night December 3, has been received so enthusiastically wherever she ha played that the press comment concerning her performances arc very interesting and reveal what her audience has in store. New York Herald Tribune says: "Miss Pickard's performances were characterized by technical skill and clarity or outline." The Austin (Texas) American says: "Miss Pickard's playing shows something more than technical excellence. There is evident in her work the feeling and understanding which go beyond mere mechanical execution and call into play the un- catalogucd something which differentiates the performer from the real musician. The program was well arranged to give opportunity for display of the versatility of the artist. Whether the passage called for delicacy of touch, scintillating brilliancy, or broad tone work, the demands were met .and with an ease which surprised while it delighted the audience." The comments from two of her former teachers praise her highly in saying: "It gives me great pleasure to speak very enthusiastically of the very artistic work of Ruth Pickard, who is in every sense of the work an artist of fine sincerity and high .deals. An opportunity to hear her should not be allowed to pass by. "Mrs?. Pickard is a pianist of Sew—So!!! rare charm and intelligence—well Kansas City equipped in every way to present masters of piano music of past and today. (Signed) CHARLES HAUBIEL, Ass't.

The scientis gave Gibson a lecture on damo ogy, the art of breaking dow dams. "Now you may think me a stupid old man," he said, "but wait until I t!>ll you what I know about the Mohnc dam. It is a military objective which I have been studying ever since the war began. This dam is some 850 yards long, 150 feet thick, and it is as high as it is thick." The scientist went on to explain that experiments with explosives on such walls had been going on for some time and that now a dam, some 20 feet across, had been built "in the south" and that certain theories, evolved with smaller models, would be tried out there. The cxpcricment proved a success, but the scientist was not convinced. Another dam in the Midlands was selected and, on one cold winter onsidcrcfl his squadron fit to undertake the mission.

One aircraft hit the sea, lost both outboard engines and flew back on the inboard two. Two others were hit by flak and ordered to return to base. That left 16 aircraft, 112 men. They continued into the Ruhr, fought past Hamm and came over the hill above the Mohne lake. "I spoke to my squadron: 'O.K., chaps, come in to attack when I ell you. I'll attack first.' 'As the last aircraft attacked and as I watched the mines drop in :xaclly the right place, a great lolumn of whiteness rose up a housand feet into the air and the i am wall collapsed "Then I felt a little remote and inrcal sitting up there in the varrn cockpit of my Lancaster, watching this mighty power which ,ve had unleashed; and then I felt ?lad because I knew that this was he heart of Germany and the icart of her industries, the place which itself had unleashed so much misery upon the whole world."

The present chairman wished to retire, Mrs. Edgar could bring influence to boar. The organization would not willingly dismiss a trusted and valuable nurse but in order to keep the peace, which meant its very lifeblood, it might see fit to remove her, and to see, in compensation, that she obtained a like position in another city. Frank was remembering this sitting on the porch with Emily. "Just what is it she's to ge over?" Emily demanded, fie said uncomfortably: "That business about typhoid in the mill district and the houses on Elderberry street." "If you were half a man," sh said with energy, "you'd look int things for yourself. You're supposed to hold a responsible position in the mills and you'll inherit the Elderberry block eventually." He said, "But look here, Emily . . ." "Oh, I know. None of my business . . ." she said furiously. "It pleases your mother to dominate welfare boards in this town, to give large sums of money publicly , . . she could expend the same sums on bettering the conditions of her employes and her tenants but she'd get no publicity, I suppose." He took her hands and held them fast. He said, eagerly: '"If you'll marry mo ... I swear it, Emily, I'll soe you have everything you want. What if she does cut up rough at first?

"That is correct," the secretary replied. "If we are to step up taxes, in view of the already rapid step-up that has been made, then the committee probably would' want, to take the view that all methods of raising taxes ought to be left open, even though you don't agree,'" George said. . , •* : •-..•:, ; •, ' !

"It wouldn't further your cause," said Emily gently. "I suppose not, but he must be a damned scoundrel." Emily asked after a minute, "You're terribly in love with her, aren't you?" He turned so that he faced, her. He said: "I'm damned if I know. I know this is according to the books , . . when I'm with her, yes, I suppose I am. But— Oh, I suppose it's partly the way Nancy talks. How she couldn't bear being married to a doctor—my sort of doctor—" "Then you have asked her to marry you?" Emily said, slowly.

If he really believed that there was nothing more to Nancy but tha surface, the physical attraction, if he were convinced that her roots were shallow, and her easy cynicism a true part oi her, he would be cured.

If she—let him be cured, and she could do so without a disloyal word, might he not turn to her after a time for sympathy and understanding, and if he did turn to her . . .? (To Be Continued) Moigenthau ran into spirited cross- examination by sales tax advocates. Sc-nator Byrcl (D-Va.i wanted to know if the witness was so opposed to a retail sales levy that he would accept only the $2,140,000,000 revenue increase provided in the House bill rather than have a sales tax imposed. "I've got no phobia against the sales tax," (he secretary replied, "but it is the least desirable of. all methods of raising additional revenue." Morgenthau said it was his judgment that by the lime Congress got through considering a 10 percent sales tax, it would not impose the levy on food, medicine and clothing and would decline lo place a new tax on top of the excise imposts which now cover many items. Ho said the result would be that probaly no more than $1,000,000,000 new revenue would be raised at an administrative cost of $18,000,000. Byrd said he was proposing a sales tax only as an emergency war measure and gave figures intended to show that the burden would not be too heavy on low income groups. Senator Clark tD-Mo.) sided with Morgenthau, with an assertion unless food, clothing and medicine' were exempted, such a levy would "impose an intolerable burden" on the poor man. Morgenthau's renewal of the treasury recommendation for a tax shift which would lift income levies off about 9,000,000 persons in the lowest brackets was accompanied by the assertion this group would pay out about $1,000,000,000 through increased excise levies. This caused Chairman George tD-Ga) to assert the figure showed the source of some of the inflationary pressure on prices. "It seems very clear," George said, "that if these 9,000,00 people are spending anything like $1,000,000,000 in excise taxes, that you are close to lhe inescapable conclusion that there is a tremendous pressure un prices in that group."
