Thereupon Ciano elivered Mussolini's message that taly could not come into the war mmediately, because she was not prepared. Hitler never forgot —or orgave. Ciano's -movements after the resignation of Mussolini were ob- cure.'He variously was reported to lave escaped from Italy with his vife and children after being held jrisoner in his apartment in Rome. But last October it was reported from Switzerland he had been ocated, disguised by a heavy )eard, living in seclusion near Ve- •ona. German troops took him-in custody and he was brought before Vlussolini who in a stormy scene accused him of "deserting Italy in the hour of her trial." Ciano was born March 18, 1903, at Livorno. He was the son of Admiral E. Costanzo Ciano, Conte di Cortellazo, an Italian naval hero and early-day Fascist. He was in the Italian diplomatic service in Shanghai when he met the dashing daughter of Mussolini, Edda, to whom he became engaged in short order. His rise was meteoric after that. He became foreign minister of foreign affairs in 1936, having previously held the ministry of press and propaganda. The success of II Duce's Ethopian campaign, which presumably took him to the height of his popularity with the Italians, was due largely to Ciano's organization of propaganda. Ciano flew a bombing plane in Ethiopia and commanded a bombing squadron against the Greeks in World War II, but rarely left his base at Bari. At the height of his power Ciano often was spoken of as' a possible successor to Mussolini. He became known as the play-boy of the fascist regime, with a weakness for blonde bathing beauties who frequented his pavilion at a Roman beach resort; Ostia, where he held University Coach to Speak at Bobcat Banquet John (Bud) Tomlin, Coach at the University of Arkansas, Will be the speaker at the banquet Friday night of this week, sponsored by the Hope Chamber of Commerce, for the Hope 1943 football team. The banquet will be held at the High School Cafeteria, and tickets are now on sale at the Citizens National Bank, First National Bank and at Roy Anderson's office. While this has not been the best season in Hope's football history, it has been much better than was expected at the beginning, of the year. The team was light and inexperienced, but then fighting spirit enabled them to make a most creditable record. Every football lover is invited to be present Friday night and pay deserved tribute to the fighting team of 1943. Ched Hall, President | of the Chamber of Commerce, will be master of ceremonies, and a full program . of entertainment is being arranged, which will be published later in this week.

A. winter cover crop of vetch could be plowed under in late spring, followed by a summer legume, such as soybeans or cowpeas to be plowed under in the fjg}. The following spring this plot coQTd be planted to vegetables and the other plot would go into cover ( crops. This rotation of the garden crops would greatly decrease the P°jft'' bility of damage from eitncr diseases of insects by removing their host plants or sources of food for the year the garden plot is kept in cover crops. Another advantage of this stem of gardening is that humus content of the soil would be greatly increased, thereby increasing the moisture-holding capacity of the soil, In addition, the legume crops plowed under would add materially to the nitrogen c^- tcnt of the soil.

The high tribunal reversed and cmanded to Woodruff circuit a case in which the lower court held .hat J. R. Chappell should have given six-months notice before requiring a tenant, Guy Reynolds, .0 move from his farm. The court erred in not submitting to the jury the question of whether a contract had been entered for the year 1U42, the tribunal said. Rey- lolds had been on the farm since 193U.

"For four days over a roundtable," said the Izvcstia editorial, which before nightfall was available to millions of Russians from Ihe German front to the Pacific ocean, "the most eminent statesmen of our day conferred and reached .complete agreement on questions of war and the most important problems of post-war organization of peace," The -.editorial was spread over three columns of the front page, togpltfcr. ;with, page -wide photographs,..of the three leaders. ,;"Hc-who reads, carefully Roose-' volt's, SlalJn^a'ntfjffihurcJtilU's •.declaration"'will understand that the" fate of the mar has been decided verbally," the editorial declared. It referred in broad, friendly fashion to the accomplishments of the British and American armies in North Africa, the Mediterranean und Southern Italy and gave Russia's Allies due honors for their contribution toward winning the war. "The success of the Red Army and the success of the Allies quickened the pace of the war und gave even greater strength to cooperation between the Allied countries in the war," Izvcstia went on. The agreement on concerted action was viewed here as the most important result of the historic parley, since, from the Soviet viewpoint, it settled the biggest question of the war—the "second front' 1 or invasion of Europe from the west. This communique was broadcast yesterday by the Moscow nidio. Crowds standing in the snow-covered streets and squares listened to the public loudspeakers without nhcering, but with evident relief. Stalin's trip — his first abroaci since'the war — took him over, tho vast reaches of Southern Russia, across treacherous mountains and snowy steppes. The natural hazards were increased by heavy clouds and low temperatures which iced the wings of his plane. He went ;to work as soon as he returned and is known to have been at his cicsi: .Sunday night.

"Washington—(/P) — Japanese > airplanes today attacked U.S. defense bases at Hawaii and Manila and President Roosevelt ordered the Army and Navy to carry out undisclosed orders prepared for the defense of the United States." (Later) "Tokyo — </P> — The Japanese Imperial Headquarters announced that Japan had entered into u state of war with the United Stales and Britain in the Western Pacific." Thus opened the first chapter of that treacherous and merciless war in the (Pacific which now enters its third year. In the first year America retreated. In the second year s.ic fought the enemy to a standstill—and began her own advance. The year now starting may not witness the actual conquest of Japan, but it will see the United Nations carry the fight a long way toward the final objective. The treachery at Pearl Harbor welded all Americans with an iron resolve to stamp out the Japanese. Today that is official policy not only of the United States but of the United Nations. And confronted by the arrayed might of the white man's world Tokyo's days are numbered . . .the just end of savages who returned evil for good, who pretended friendship merely to practice treachery, and who copied the manner and industry of 20lh Century civilization only to debauch them. * * * Today opens the annual financial drive of the Hempstead County Council . of the Boy, Scouts of America, ,'.,-.'..It coals abpjui $?;;%.year to sup- •port-S-dMtlrfg"f8i w SaW hoy.

Your correspondent once upon a time got as high as a second-class Scout (further advance was halted because every summer we had to work on the farm). But Scouting in 1943'- assumes u new and vital role. So many of the men and older boys have gone to war. War hurries all the normal proccssse of humanity—and boys feel overnight they are men. Scouting is a mighty force for boys to tie to in wartime, for Scouting puts first things first. A Boy Scout is faithful to a trust. He is taught the measure of a man's responsibility in the grownup world. Certainly there is nothing more precious to a nation caught in the emergency of war. For the responsibility of men did sometimes fall upon boys in pioneer days — and Scouting simply means that the youth of our wartime America are helping to prepare themselves for whatever task the safety of home und country requires be done. Take time today—you grownups— to do your part in helping finance Boy Scout work for another year. Latin America Feeling Better Toward U.S. Washington, Dec. 7 —(/P) — A congressional committee just back from a flying inspection tour of U. S. military bases in Central und South America reported today that the "good neighbor" policy had produced mutual bcnefils throughout the western hemisphere, but staled that "bungling tactics by amateur goodwill emissaries" had in some instances injured American standing. The lawmaker-inspectors laid great emphasis upon a suggestion for immediate planning for postwar commercial relationships with tho countries to the south. Tho group, a House military al- fairs subcommittee headed by Rep. Mcrritt (D-NY), found thai hemisphere defense plans had been "effectively and zealously carried out," and that "an encouraging do- grec of cooperation has been received from our neighbor republics in this work." But said the committee, "wa must stress the fact that the unsettled questions about the future utilization of American-built bases arc vital und pressing ones whose disposition should not longer be delayed." This was accompanied by a recommendation that the United States act now toward "getting its house in order for postwar commercial enterprise." The report, stating that "the good neighbor policy has been highly (Continued on Page Two) Reds Sever Vital Rail, Threaten Kirovograd London, Dec. 7 (/P) — Driving across the bleak central Ukraine southwest of Kremonchug in an offensive apparently aimed at clearing the great Dnieper bend, Red Army troops under Gen. Rodion Malinovsky have severed the Germans' vital railway line between Smela and Znamenka to threaten the important stronghold of Kirovo- grad, 23 miles further west, a Russian communique said today. A powerful Soviet artillery and air barrage krumplcd German defenses in front of the infantry and tank advance, which stormed into the town of Tsibulevo astride the 50-mile long Znamomka-Smela rail division, 14 miles northwest of Zna- menka. Twenty other towns, including Alexandriya and Dikovka, cast of Znamenka, were overrun, while 90 Germans were killed and 17 tanks destroyed in the Red Army I squeeze, the Soviet bulletin said. The driv ewas staged at the hcigth of a howling blizzard through heavily drifted snow. "Our troops captured a great amount of equipment and ammunition, and prisoners were taken," the communique said. Capture of Tsibulevo and Olim- piadovka, southwest of Alexandri- ya, placed Russian columns only 23 miles from Korovograd and apparently scaled the fate of Znamen- ka, where Soviet advance units were reported battering the town's outer defenses. Other Soviet troops were less than six miles from Smela after an attack which had by-passed the Dnieper river city of Chcrkasy.' Juncture of these forces with those advancing on Kirovograd apparently was-.,rcgarded as imminent. The developing Red Army offensive, which has already split large German forces guarding their lateral rail and supply lines, now threatens the security of all enemy positions in the lower Ukraine from the Black Sea to the Rumanian frontier, including the stoutly-defended manganese center of Krivoi Rog, 60 miles below Znamenka. The Russian war bulletin reported continued heavy German attacks in the Chernyakhov sector of the Kiev bulge, all of which, it said, were repulsed with approximately 1,000 enemy dead being counted on the battlefield. Red Army troops forged ahead northwest of Gomel, the communi- que said, and captured several more towns on the road to Zhlobin and Rogachev, rail centers important to the German defense system in White Russia. Air Tense As Japs Try to Sink Carrier By CHARLES ARNOT United Press Staff Correspondent Aboard a U. S. Carrier off the Gilbert Islands, Dec. 0 Delayed — U P— The air is tense aboard a carrier such as this when you know that the Japs are trying desperately to get it, disregarding mounting losses in planes. ^Darkness comes quickly in the tropics and' it is as black as pitch just after sundown — until the Japanese come with their flares. The first planes are detected, but they don't find the carrier until nearly an hour later. It is that hour of waiting that is hard to take. You know the Japs want your carrier and that if they find you it will be a contest between a relatively slow moving ship and flare- guided planes flying 20 miles an hour or more. You stand with the officers and strain your eyes for the planes. Sweat trickles down your neck and from under your steel helmet. We pick up a report from the bridge that three planes have been sighted converging from different directions a few miles away. They're closing in. Suddenly a flare blossoms —then another — and a third and a fourth. They're trying to mark us for the bombers which follow. The course of the carrier is shifted and the escorting battleships thunder into action. Now we can see the flashes as the anti-aircraft shells bloom in the air. Then all is quiet. Later comes a report that one ship has brought down a "certain," and another has a "probable. 1 , 1 The Japs are dispersed. An officer grins. "Nuts," he said, "the Japs aren't any better at night than in the daytime." There are only three species of tortoise in the Ujjited Stales. Yanks Capture Most Important Heights of Push i "• —Europe By WES GALLAGHER Allied Headquarters, Algiers, Dec. 7 —(/P)— Fifty army infantry has crashed through Nazi defenses in bitter assaults to capture the most dominating positions in a 25- square-milc area overlooking the road to Rome, it was announced today, while on the cast coast of Italy British tanks rammed across the Moro river. A headquarters officer, describing the battle in the vital Monte Camino and Monte Maggiorc area on the western sector, declared "we now hold the most important features in that area roughly five miles long and five miles wide." On the Adriatic side of the German Tenth Army line, Gen. Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's tanks and infantry drove across the Moro river, 10 miles above the Sangro, in a tank battle fought in a fog. Four German Mark IV tanks were wrecked. The new U. S. 15th Air Force struck heavily at the Germans' Elcvsis and Kalamaki airfields near Athens, with Flying Fortresses and Liberators knocking down 10 Nazi planes in a violent air battle. American troops wading flooded areas, with water up to their necks at many places, marked the second anniversary of Pearl Harbor with bloody fighting. Field Marshal Gen. Albert Kes- sclring, realizing the prime importance of the 1,500-foot and 2,800-foot peaks dominating the road to Rome running through Cassino, threw the full weight of his divisions into desperate counterattacks.- • , f ; ./ But*"despite these heavy -blows, U. S. troops captured a mountain point six miles west of Mignano overlooking the swollen Garigliano r|ver, and farther inland plunged a mile west of Filignano, taking 40 prisoners in a localized assault. South of the American positions on the ridges of Mount Maggiore, British forces were driven off a ridge by a furious Nazi asault, but in a nearby sector seized a German strongpoint. The Eighth army's punch across the Moro river met less difficulty than anticipated, but the tank action was one of the few fought in mountainous Italy. It occurred at San Leonardo, two-and-one-half miles northwest of San Vito, and two miles inland. North of the Moro, the Germans threw in two counterattacks that were beaten off. The fighting on the Adriatic flank now runs from the mouth of the i Moro river to a point four miles northeast of Orsogna, and then south to Casoli. Heavy rains swept the Eighth Army front. Both the Germans and the Allies are having difficulty bringing up supplies all along the front across Italy. The Garigliano river on the western side is swollen more than a mile wide in places. Swamplands and flooded creeks hampered both sides. Low-lying clouds cloaked some mountain peaks on the Fifth army front, and attacking British-American troops had to feel their way forward through fog. Due to weather, aerial activity over Italy was slight, but American invader planes hit the approaches to a bridge at Ceprano southeast of Rome, and warhawks attacked a bridge southeast of Cassino. Two Allied planes- were lost in all operations, On the Athens raid, waves of Fortresses and Liberators escorted by lightnings poured fragmentation bombs and explosives on the airfields, hitting parked planes and hangars. The Nazi fighters put up their most vigorous defense in weeks, but the Americans sent down 10 and damaged at least seven more out of 33 attackers. Brig. -Gen. J. H. Atkinson of Dalhart, Tex., commanding a Fortress wing, sent his crews out yesterday with the admonition to do a particularly good bombing job because "there are only 19 more bombing days before Christmas.

America Overcomes Cowardly Japanese Attack to Seize the Offensive in Less Than 2 Years -—War in Pacific Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7 (#>)— Two years after Japanese planes touched off the Pacific war at Pearl Harbor, America's expanding air force is raining heavy offensive blows which hint at early invasion of the Marshalls and New Britain, two vital links in the enemy's chain of outpost defenses for. Japan and the Philippines. Tersely, Adm. Chester W. Nimitz announced that strong aircraft carrier task forces smashed hard Saturday at the Marshalls — the same type of attack which immediately preceded the successful, albeit bitterly-waged, conquest of the Gilberts only two weeks ago. Enemy air and shipping bases in the Marshalls 2,000 miles southwest of Hawaii and about 30 miles northeast of the Gilberts, form stepping stones on what Navy Secretary Frank Knox has termed "the more direct route to Japan." Nearly 2,000 miles to the southwest of this action, New Britain island, whose capture would burst open the sea lanes to the Philippines, was blasted Saturday night and Sunday from the fortress of Rabaul on the east to the air base of Cape Gloucester on the west, Gen. Douglas MacArthur reported today. Within two weeks, his pluncs have exploded 1,000 tons of bombs on New Guinea defenses. The bulk of that tonnage has fallen on supplies and installations at the western end which is separated at the closest point by only 70 miles of water from MacArthur's ground forces on New Guinea's Huon peninsula. (Keyed to these offensive thrusts was the disclosure in Washington that 20,000 U. S. firms have becji given the go sign to turn out more invasion craft, such as self-pro- pelcd barges, tank-landing vessels and amphibious "ducks." (At the same time, Japan's ability to supply and reinforce invasion-menaced areas has been further impaired by new American submarine successes. The navy reported in Washington that 11 more enemy cargo ships have been sunk, bringing to 516 the grand total of Japanese vessels destroyed in two years of war.) The necessity for radio silence, in order to protect the movements of task force, limited Admiral Nimitz' announcement on the latest Marshalls attack, one which followed a series of raids on bases there by army land-based Liberators. Tokyo rudio, whose widespread claims of sinkings frequently are issued for the purpose of obtaining information on Allied naval dispersal said a carrier and cruiser were sunk, a carrier and another warship damaged and 20 planes were shot down out of 100 attacking the Marshalls. It conceded damage to facilities in the Marshalls. General MacArthur's bombers struck their biggest blow, 155 tons of explosives, at Cape Gloucester but also hammerd bargs and ships along both the north and south coast and set fire to ,a 6,000- ton vessel at Rabaul. This potential invasion springboard on New Guinea's Huon peninsula was expanded by Australians pushing, with the aid of tanks and planes, along the coast north of Finschhafen. In the Northern Solomons, while i American invasion forces on Bou- jgainville sent out patrols which were unable to contact the tracing Japanese, Adm. William F. Halsey's planes roamed the island from end to end in 200 sorties, dropping more than 2,000 bombs and encountering only one enemy plane which kept at a safe distance. His destroyei's poured shells on Japanese bypassed to the south of the Empress Augusta Bay beachhead and on other enemy forces on the northwest end of Cho'seul island. Bougainville is Japan'.- last big island base in the Northern Solomons barring a frontal attack on Rabaul.

HIGHTOW'ER Washington, Dec, 7 (fP) — Belief that the war against Germany will be won in the third year of American participation, which begins on this second anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, was buttressed today by the high command accord reached at Teheran, But the military and naval officials who. hold this belief foresee at least two more years of fighting' before Japan can be forced into the unconditional surrender decided upon at the Pacific war conference in Cairo. Studying the effects of the Cairo meeting and the European war conference at Teheran, announced yesterday, strategists here summed up 1943 as the last year of preparation on the home and fighting fronts and predicted the 12 months now beginning will see the launching of unprecedented offensives against both Germany and Japan. As a result of these milestone meetings the Allied groups ranged against both foes have perfected the overall pattern of their victory strategies, determining the time and nature of the final three- pronged assault on Germany as well as the advances designed to bring the full power of Britain, America and China against Japan. Washington experts emphasize that this is an epochal accomplishment. Despite the long series of conferences between President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill and an increasingly free exchange of information with Russia and China, no such specific agreements on war plans and postwar objectives had ever before been achieved among the Allies, Speculation is that the military fictions to impement the Teheran decisions may start in the Balkans. For that reason officials here are waiting further clues to Turkey's role with extreme interest. The communique issued jointly by Roosevelt, Chu:chill and Marshal Stalin contained an indicatkn of possible developments in the Balkans area by announcing "complete agreement as to me scope and timing of the operations fl. to be undertaken from the east, west and south." This statement wap interpreted to mean that the time has been set for invasion of Europe across the channel. The time undoubtedly was chosen with respect to the progress of Russian offensives on the eastern front and the development of an attack in the south of Europe. The latter might come in either Southern France or ihe Balkans. Most observers here incline to the belief that it would-be '.ha Balkqns und that a massive thrust there would precede the attack across the channel in order to bring maximum pressure on Nazi Europe at all vulnerable points. While victory over Japan is considered equally certain by authorities here, they say tn.at no such confidence with respect to t'me is (Continued on Page Two) London, Dec 7 (/P)— A conference between President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill and President Ismet Inonu of Turkey has been in progress in North Af-,' nca, it was learned today, and the results will concern Turkey's future position in relation to the Allies' war against the Axis / The participation of Inonu in coh- ferences with Roosevelt and Churchill apparently was based on< the never-implemented British-' Turkish pact of 1939 which pledged' Turkey to aid Britain in the event' of aggression leading to war in the •» v ff Mediteri anean. „ ( *&* The diplomatic coirespondent of! «. the British Press Association wrote, tt "Churchill and Roosevelt are in n conference witn President Ismet ' Inonu of Turkey and their dehber- t most as important 1 an effect upon itions may in due course have aN i the couise and conduct of the war ' as the great inter-Allied talks which already have taken place m ^ Cairo and Teheran." The Berlin radio said that the conference had been completed in Cairo and that Inonu had returned to Ankara, where the Tuikish cab- < met would meet in special session Franz Von Papen, the Geiman ambassador, talked for nearly an hour yesterday with Tuikish Pre- miei Sukru Saracaglu, Reuters re- poited today in a dispatch from Ankara. German spokesmen meanwhile told Swedish correspondents that' "the Allies aie exerting heavy piessure to force Turkey to join the war " f (A Budapest broadcast heaid by U S goveinment monitors *said,r Bulgarian Premier Dobri^ Bojiloy, had conferred with' -the Turkish**-''; minister to Sofia after a^meeting of "J the Bulgarian cabinet last night It l * declared that "well informed political circles in Sofia connect this cabinet meeting with the Turkish- Anglo-Saxon Soviet confeience ") There nas been no Allied con- fnmation of such a conference Cauo dispatches yesterday stated that the whereabouts of President Roosevelt had not been disclosed since he attended the three-power paily in Iian, although it was revealed that Churchill had attend; ed combined Bntish-Ameiican mil- itaiy paileys in Cairo subsequent to the Teheran meeting. Reports reaching Budapest from Sofia, however, indicated that the Nazis, pieparing to meet any change in Tuikey's status, were moving troops through Bulgaria" in the direction of the Turkish border! Three motorized German divisions weie said to have passed through the Bulgarian capital in lecent days. Such troop movements in Bulgaria — the first of the satellites to 'f fall fiom the Kaiser's orbit in 1 ' World War One — might be inc'i'i dental, however, to leports 6f mounting tension within that couh^ try. Taking a Turkish-British-American conference for granted, George Schroeder, political correspondent; of the German overseas news ageiv cy, a Nazi propaganda organ, -as-! serted that the "Wilhelmstrass'e does not think it fit to consider this TuiKish-Alhed meeting as just a routine tup of the Turkish president." "Anglo-Balkan sources," he dfe clared, "hint at the possibility that the Balkans campaign was discussed in Teheran and if that was! the case it would be impeiative to know what Turkey's attitude would be." In London there was little specii : lation on a Turkish change of stat : us. Wilson Broadbent, Dail Mail correspondent, wrote, however that "now that the climax seed's to have arrived and the Germans are beginning to bluster and show their hand, I believe the Turkish government will not hesitate. They will declare themselves for the Allies and assume all the responsibility which that entails." If Turkey should cast her lot with the Allies, she could play an important role in the offensive which Stajin, Roosevelt and Churchill plotted at Teheran to | crush Germany from the east, west and south. Allied armies in Italy already are moving toward Germany from the south, but Turkish participation would open the way for a full scale assault on the Balkans, also from the "south," Turkey's entry would provide the Allies with a shorter water transportation route to Russia and would also give Britain and the United States an opportunity of joining the Red Army on a common front in Bulgaria or Rumania, Granting of Turkish air bases to the Allies would pave the way for recapture ol the Dodecanese islands and would furnish air cover for any invasion of the Balansk.
