Naval Air Station, New Orleans-, La., Nov. 30 — A prominent Hope, Ark. attorney and former member of the Arkansas Legislature was one of the outstanding students recently graduated from the Naval College for Primary Flight Instructors here. He is Lt. (j.g.) Talbot Field, Jr., son of Talbot Field of Texarkana, Ark., and grandson of Mrs. Hattie A. West, with.whom he made his home at 323 West Division I Street, Hope. Ark. Commander Paul E. Gillespie, commanding officer of the station, presented Lt. Field with his certificate as a quilfied primary flight instructor and commended him for his fine record at the school. "Victory depends on the type of men Lt. Field trains for our Naval Air Force, He was in the upper fifth of his class, no little accomplishment since the instructors-to- be are hand-picked," the commander said. A member of the Arkansas Legislature in 1941-42, Lt. Field was active in state and local civic affairs. He served on the State Legislature Defense Council and as chairman and commander of his county Civilian Defense Council In Hope he was vice-president of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Kiwanis Club and on the board of Stewards of the Episcopal Church. He was chaii- man of the -Tuberculosis Association's Christmas Sale in 1942. Lt. Field received'his L. L. B. degree from the University of Arkansas in 1940. He-also attended the University of the South at Sewanee, Tenn., and the University of Texas. He participated in college athletics, lettering in track. He will train future combat pilots at the Dallas (Texas) Naval Air Station. Washington By JACK STINNETT Washington — Your capital in wartime: In spite of the grim realities of war, Washington's sense of humor trundles merrily along. Here's a lift from some of the stories now going the rounds. This one is Donald Nelson's favorite and proof that the genial chief of WPB learned a lot about the literalness of the Russian mind. "If you don't want the Russians to take you at your word, don't say it," says Nelson. On his recent trip to the U.S.S.R., Nelson attended one of those huge banquets of which the Russians are so fond. There were Navy Boasts a Man Who Can Do Something About Weather By HAL BOYLE Allied Headquarters, Algiers, Nov. 29(Dclayed)—M')—The nnvy has a man who can do something about the weather.

Smilingly, he rubbed the back of his neck. "I've drunk so many toasts," he said, "I have a stiff neck." The next morning, he was aroused at an early hour by a knock at the door. He shouted "Come in." A Russian husky entered and explained: "I'm the masseur. I've come to fix your neck." In a recent debate (the senators call it colloquy), Sen. "Cotton Ed" Srnith: of "South Carplina, 'the dean of "the upper chamber ' humorists, both in years and service, arose to protest that he couldn't understand what the matter in hand was all he added, "maybe that's just because I'm an ignoramus." . At once, chivalrous majority lead er Alben Barkley was on his feet. "I moye to strike that out," he said. "The members of this body are all aware that our beloved colleague from South Carolina is no ignoramus." Senator Smith was on his feet again. "Let it stand," he roared, "I've got lots of company." There are two people who like to tell stories on Paul McNutt, the manpower boss. One is attractive Mrs. Paul McNutt and the other is about.

K. Hewitt, commander of U. S. Nnval 'forces North African waters, that at the hours chosen for debarking the sea would be calm enough to permit benching of . (he grenl American amphibious forces without heavy casualties from winds and waves. , As a result he now wears the ribbon of the Legion of Merit, and cci\ has a new sprinkling of gray hairs, cs. The 34-year-old commander, a fit and likable man, knows where he got the gray hairs. "I was getting them by the minute two days out of Casablanca a year ago this month," he said. "The storm had developed over Iceland. If it followed the classic pattern it would have set up huge swells off French Morocco, which has one of the most exposed coast lines in the world." At such times a 50-foot surf may develop. Troops attempting to land under these conditions would be drowned by the thousands. But Steerc knew that the storm was moving fast, so fast that he did not believe that it would have the usual effect on Morocco. "I was burning up' the books looking at charts and I made 20 different calculations," he said. "That night, 36 hours before the landing, I told the admiral the surf conditions would permit us to get ashore." Admiral Hewitt had complete faith. He went ahead will) the landing as planned, cumo off well in the three to four foot surf Slcerc had forecast. In the assault on 'Sicily Admiral Hewitt again called in the commander. A freiik. 33 knot wind sprang up the day before "D" day, whipping up whitccappcd waves, made hundreds of soldiers seasick, worried their officers. Not Stccrc. He felt the wind's pulse with an anemometer, drew some weather maps. "I could sec it would be short lived and knew we would be all right once wo got in the lee of the island," he said. "We advised no change in plans." Sure enough, the wind died clown after nightfall and sea swells and surf, diminished. Steerc then calcd the turn again, forecasting the weather for the attack of Salerno in Italy. It was almost a vacation by contrast to the other landings. "We hod ideal conditions with a calm sea and good visibility," the commander said. This 18 man aerological unit releases twice a day forecasts for naval vessels and convoys in the Mediterranean and also issues storm warnings. In this day to day forecasting it has an average accuracy rating of better than 80 per cent. , ' ' .

Before organizing the unit Steere forecast for patrol planes in Newfoundland, Iceland and Greenland, often flying with them.to advise if it was necessary for a flight to turn back. He has flown within 90 miles of the North Pole on these routine missions. Ho became a specialist in weather forecasting in 1939 after a five quartermaster regiment have been cited by the tenth U. S. air force for thci'part they played in dropping supplies from airplanes to forward elements of the Allied forces Battling the Japanese in Northern Burma. All of the men, including Pvt. Jefferson Johnson of DC Queen, Ark., were awarded air medals F-O William C. Tyndall, Nashville, Ark., was one of those who also received Distinguished Flylfig Cross- The citation said, in part "as members of the quartermaster corps, they hove participated in missions totalling more than 10 hours during which exposure to enemy fire was probable and expected. Through means of parachute dropping, they have provided food, clothing, mail, medicinal supplies and materiel to our forward elements and to those of our Indian. British and Chinese allies in the Naga hills and mountains of upper Burma. "The success of these flights, further imperiled by mountainous terrain and monsoon weather, has been marked by outstanding cooperation between the quartermaster corps of the services of supply and the air corps. All individuals engaged in these operations have, with courage and fortitude, accomplished their assignments and brought much credit upon themselves and the military service of the United States. F-O Tyndall was a member of medium and heavy bombardment groups awarded distinguished flying crosses for participating in combat missions totalling more than 20 hours. Sgt. Fillon W. Waters, Huttig was a member of medium and heavy bombardment groups award cd air medals for "mcriloriou. achievement" while participating in combat missions totalling more than 10 hours. Nazis Leave Tragic Present London —(/I')— German bombers raided an East Anglian village and left a tragic present at the birthday party of 4-ycar-okl John Whiting. When the siren sounded, John and his fountccn guests left the tea .table, with its birthday cake and four pink candles, for the homemade shelter in the garden. Shortly after a direct hit destroyed the shelter, killing John, his sister Betty, 5, his grandmother, both his grandfathers, and two cousins, 5 and 6. American soldiers, passing in jeeps when the bomb fell, dug into the debris with bare hands and saved John's father, mother, and two sisters, all critically injured but alive.

WORPEN Pacific Fleet Headquarters, Dec, 2 W 1 )— The largest naval concentration in history and hundreds of thousands of Allied troops •momentarily are expecting the attack orders opening a campaign against Japan of such magnitude as to make clear that Tarawa was only the overture. It will be aimed against those hundreds of islands forming concentric rings of defenses from Japan's valuable conquests in the Philippines and the Indies. There will be fights for islands which are not so much of value to the Allies as they are dangerous in Japanese hands. On them, Japan has stationed some of her finest army und navy troops under orders to slay until killed as they did at Tarawa. American experts do not expect the Japanese to use anything like their full strength in the early or even middle stages of the campaign. Generally speaking, these islands face one of three fates: direct frontal attack by overpowering force; encirclement and starvation; or by passing and tactical emasculation. Most of them doubtless will be either encircled or bypassed. American lives will be expended in (Continued qn Page Two) At Cairo Meet; U.S., Britain Plan Invasion By JOHN F. CHESTER Cairo, Dec. 2(/P)—Britain and the United States agreed on details for a new invasion of Europe and perhaps discussed a strike Into the Balkins, it was reported on good authority today, at the epic tri power, unrelenting war to thrash Japan into unconditional surrender and tear away the whole empire .she has won in 50 years of conquest. There was a feeling here big developments would come from the five-day meeting of President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill and General Issimo Chiang Kai- shek, who left for unannounced destinations last Friday after completing their talk. (A Reuters dispatch froni Lisbon said they had gone to, Iran to meet Premier Joseph Stalin, and Berlin declared a four - power meeting already was underway in Teheran.) For Japan, the three war leaders promised "unrlcnting pressure X X X by sea, land, and air," and declared they would strip her of all her empire stolen in five wars since 1894—reducing Japan virtually to the same territorial status as before Commodore Perry opened up that Oriental land of the Shoguns in 1853. Only her home islands remain. Major decisions were reported reached for brilliant developments in World War Two; and while the official announcement dealt only with Japan, no one "questioned" the secrete, day-and-night conference was global rather thaii.strictly Far Eastern in character. At a meeting not attended by the Chinese, these general staffs were reported to have engaged in long argumnts and discussions on a European invasion before reaching a united front on details coming into the picture since the Quebec conference. The question of the Balkans also was discussed, said men in position to know details of the proceedings. One official observer reported Mediterranean affairs were the first subject of the biggest military meeting of the entire conference. Gen D wight D. Eisenhower presided at this conference, it was said, and'lhere was sound reason to believe that not only the present campaign in Italy was revied but also future possibilities, including a possible Balkans campaign in which Soviet leaders are intensely interested. Only one real vestige of the conference, outside of newspapermen, remained when the official commu- nique was released last night. It was disclosed the senior American war planning group met yesterday morning and held a joint conference with their British opposite numbers in the afternoon. The American group included Rear Admiral B. H- Bieri, Brig Gen L. S. Kuter for air, and Col. F. N, Roberts for the army, but it was not disclosed whether they were interested primarily in European of Far Eastern affairs. There was an inkling, hjowever, in the hint that Lt. Gen. Joseph W. Stilwell U. S. Commander-m chief in the China-Bunna-India theater, might- There was no secret, of the conference's purposes as regards Japan, .for the official communique asserted "the several military missions have agreed upon future military operations" against her, and "the three great Allies ore fighting this war to restrain und punish the aggression of Japan." Japan will be thrpwn out of "all territories which she has taken by violence and greed," the commun- ique added. (By this, Japan's possessions would be sliced from areas of some 3,000,000 square miles and 50,000,000 population of' 75,00,00.) Significantly, the military leaders participating included Lord Louis Mountbatten, Allied commander-in-chief in Southeast Asia; General Stilwell, and Maj. Gen. Claire L. Chcnnault. U. S. air force commander in China. And there now is good fighting weather in. the China-Burma-India theater. Significantly also, it was learned Gen. Douglas MacArthur's chief- of-staff, Maj. Gen.

In 14 days of continuous fighting, the war buletin said, more than 1,200 Nazis were slain and large quantities of arms and ammunition were captured by the Yugoslavs. Heaviest fighting was reported near the town of Rakek Ajdovec and Bcla Goran, where hostilties began Nov. 11 and continued until Nov. 24. Other partisan columns, operating south of Slovenia in North western Croatia cut the important Zagreb-Belgrade main railway line in several places between Zagreb and Sisak.

Lmf~> 9- U.S. Protests News Letik&g£ of Conference By ERNEST AGNEW London, Dec. 2 —-(/P)— Brendan Bracken, British information minister, answering questions in Commons today aimed at placing responsibility for the world-wide news leakage on the North Africa conference, said in his opinion silch meetings ought to be absolute security conferences in the future." Apparently he meant absolutely nothing should be printed about conferences from any source until the official news is released. Bracken was put on the carpet with questions regarding both the ministry and the British Broadcasting Corporation, which is under his supervision, Grilled about press arrangements and the fact the BBC broadcast news of the conference to Europe 24 hours before it was released to British newspapers, Bracken explained the BBC report was based on a Reuters news service dispatch from Lisbon. (The Reuters dispatch, issued Tuesday, 30 hours before official announcement of the conference, said it had been held and that President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill had proceeded to Iran to talk with Premier Marshal Stalin. Reuters, however, did not disclose decisions reached at the Cairo conference). Elmer Davis, OWI director at Washington, has protested the Reuters dispatches.

Yanks Lose 27 Bombers in Night Raid London, Dec. 2 —(/P)— Striking through rocket-hurling formations of German fighters, waves of American heavy bombers pounded the Rhineland industrial city of Solingen the second day in a row yesterday while U. S. Marauders bombed Nazi airfields in Northern France and Belgium. The air ministry announced today RAF bombers laid mines in German controlled waters last night, but there was no indication of any major activity. Two of the British planes were reported missing. The third American attack of Germany in as many days was marked by fierce sky battles, and 27 Flying Fortresses and Liberators failed to return to their bases. Thirty-three German planes were knocked down during the day's operations against a loss of 42 Allied aircraft. The missions included an attack oh a German aircraft plant at Albert, France, and assaults against objectives in Holland and shipping off the Brest, peninsula. The Allied loses included one light bombers and 14 fighters besides the 27 U. S. heavy bombers. Two other German planes were believed destroyed on the ground.

Dear sirs: In response to your request for a letter from me concerning the Boy Scouts of America, I should like to say, as I have in years past, that this organization has my sincere endorsement. Each year that this war continues will see an ever increasing need for all organizations which teach the doctrine of sound American principles. In my opinion, the Boy Scouts do much in the way of education along this line, and it is my hope that their work will continue and that great benefit will accrue to the boys of this country. Sincerely yours, Signed: W. KENDALL LEMLEY, Municipal Judge. Southwest Pacific,' Allied Headquarters, Dec. 2(yp)—Light naval craft of Vice Adm. Thomas C, Kinkaid's command have hammered Gasmata on New Britain island and Madang on New Guinea for the first time from the sea, boldy carrying United States colors onto Japan's Southwest Pacific doorstep. Many times' these two prime enemy air and ship bases have felt the smash of tons of Allied aerial bombs, .but the seaborne attacks, presumably by destroyers the night of Nov. 29 and dawn next day, brought the Japanese a new kind of bad news which was hurled with marksmanship described as "effective." Gen. Douglas MacArthur's com- munique today also told of a repeat aerial raid on enemy air facilities at Cape Gloucester, Western New Britain. Twenty- eight tons of bombs were dropped there in the second attack for Nov. 29, making a total of 74 tons for the day. . Other Allied bombers struck Japanese installations on the Kai islands northeast of Australia, hitting the hardest at Langgoer where the jetty area was bombed and fires visible for 40 miles were set in supply dumps. On Huon peninsula, Australian soldiers who captured the enemy coastal supply point at Bonga Nov. 29, were fighting westward toward Wareo and a juncture with other troops moving northward from Sattelberg. The Aussies wiped out an isolated Japanese force of 37 men. Japanese strong points near the American-held beachhead at Empress Augusta buy on Bougainvile island in the North Solomons were strafed and hit with 46 tons of bombs. Dauntless dive-bombers, Avenger torpedo planes and Aira- cobra fighters did this job, helping marines and soldiers to make from slight advances on the northeastern flank of our holdings. Adm. Wiliam F, Halsey reported the Japanese shelled the Empress Augusta bay beachhead south of Torokina, firing at a range up to five miles but causing no casualties or material damage.
