GRAIN AND PROVISIONS By WILLIAM FERRIS Chicago, Dec. 7 —(/P)— Much of the bullish enthusiasm created by higher corn maximums was out of the grain market today and prices showed a slight lendency to ease. Losses, however, were confined to minor fractions at the worst and near the final bell some new buying entered all pits. Activity was on a greatly reduced level from yesterday as traders waited to see if the various new regulations would bring more grains to market. Corn bookings did not show any spectacular expansion. Trade reports said flour activity had greatly increased, box cars s remarked in previous col- the signs are that the West- jfe, gro Allies now are going full speed iphead m preparing for an early in- jjj^a'sion of the continent.

"At no time have farmers asked 'or increased prices, except on dairy products, on which OPA is oh record that a maladjustment exists," Benson told the Senat'.' Banking Committee in testimony on the bill to repeal subsidies Jan. 1. "At no time have farmers asked for a discontinuance of price control. Farmers do not want inflation.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York, Dec. 7 (/P) -Strong in the case of amphibious invasion. So the main target we're shooting at is invasion of Western France. Meantime the bombing of Western Europe and Germany will go on with increasing intensity. That's ah essential preliminary to invasion, and of course it might crack that war-weary German morale. Sees Defeat (Continued From Page One) now possible. Allied forces admittedly have a long .and costly way to 'go before they attain in rela tion to Japan positions for massive assault which they now possess in relation to Germany. Almost a year and a half after the initial Pacific ' offensive against Guadalcanal island in the Southwest Pacific, hard-fighting American troops are still strug gling for possession of the last of the Solomons, and the key Japanese base ol Rabaul, at best a peri meter defense positon, remains to be taken. spots still were visible in today's stock market but a number of leaders ran out of climbing fuel.

Barton, El Dorado, Ark., oil executive, parrying questions concerning Arkansas politics, today made plans to leave here tomorrow for a week's stay in New York. He declined to discuss published reports in his home state that he might become a candidate for the U. S. Senate next summer. The reports said he would seek the office if neither Rep. J. W.

Barton asserted he came here for the monthly meeting of the advisory board of the Petroleumn Administration for War of which he is a member.

INC) Renewal of U-Boat Warfare Reported London, Dec. G —(/P)— An at' lempted renewal of U-boat warfare on Allied convoys has been smashed with the sinking of six German submarines against the loss of one RAF Liberator bomber in an eight-day battle with U. S. naval and RAF coastal command planes. In making the disclosure yesterday, the British Air Ministry said American and RAF airmen had made 15 attacks on submarine wolf packs attempting to break up three convoys recently. The three great convoys were brought safely to port after an aerial attack so intense two of the ,U-boat packs were unable to fire a single torpedo against the merchantmen. Only bad weather, •heavy seap and poor visibility saved the packs from additional losses, the air ministry said. Wreckage and bodies were seen after each of the six confirmed sinkings, and a total of 80 to 90 submarine survivors were seen 'after some, of the attacks. The victories, shared by both American and RAF Liberators as well as other RAF aircraft, wero not specified'among U. S. and RAF airmen. Latin America (Continued t rom Fage One) profitable to our friends and advantageous to us," followed by less than tv^j weeks a statement by Senator Butler (R-Neb) that U. S. aid to Latin American countries was "naively conceived and badly coordinated boondoggling." Butler, who made an independent 20,000 mile tour of central and South American countries, told the senate the "good neighbor" policy vas based on "sentimental dreams," that in some Latin coun- ries "they laugh at us for bein^ suckers." Merrill's group criticized some J. S. federal agencies "which in learly every country appear to set under each other's feet in the scramble to advance their respective interests." The committee which included Rep. Short (R-Mo), left Washington November 3 and traveled 14,567 miles in three weeks by air, ;oing as far south as RioDeJan- cl'IO . visited the Blylhcville, Newport and Walnut Ridge air training fields Sunday and Monday.

Flag Raising Has a Special Bugler Tarawa, Dec. 7 —UP— A special* bugler wearing a special clip sounded colors \vhen Ihe American flag went up over Tarawa. Marine Pvt. James Williams of Birmingham, Ala., had been bugler on the S. S. Hornet when thai air! craft carrier was sunk by the Japs. When the Hornet went down, Williams, wearing this same cap and pair of shorts, clung to a box for five hours until he was rescued. The marine private kept his cap, nnd bungle waiting for the day when he. would sec the Japs pay for the sinking of his ship. When he went to'Tarawa as a tank gunner, he took the bugle along as he said, "just in case." When the general called for a musician, Williams stepped up — but something was wrong. He had been living in a tank for nearly four days nnd had discarded his filthy dungarees for the first thing handy thai was clean — a Jap naval uniform. The general barked, "Get those clothes off and keen them off." Another marine produced n clean marine uniform, Williams dug up his old cap from somewhere, .and.' bugled for all he was worth*».-- .__-• ,.,.»a- ffr—— ' •" ' Senate Defers Action on Rail Wage Hike Washington, Dec. 7 (/P)— The Senate today put off until Thurs- i duy consideration of legislation to'* grant an 8 cent hourly wage increase to 1,100,000 nonoperating railroad employees — pay like agreed upon between the railroads and 15 union lenders last August.

Now, Where's my quiet Mouse?" The quiet Mouse had brought her calm lace to his .side, and silently taken his arm, before he finished speaking. "Corne away, my dear," said the old man. "M,r.

Blames Dry States for Liquor Shortage Lilllo Rock, Dec. 7 — </P)— Revenue Commissioner Murray B. McLeod today expressed belief di version of whisky to dry states was a contributing factor in the liquor shortage in legally wet states. "The federal government should stop permitting the consignment of whisky to states that have voted it out," he said. State revenue inspectors reported approximately 4,000 cases of whisky passed through Arkansas last month bound for dry Mississippi. Their reports were based on shipments entering and leaving the state through ports of entry and exit. All liquor shipments bound for Mississippi were checked through the port of exit at Lake Village, Ark., via the Greenville, Miss., Lake Village bridge, the report showed. Reports for the summer months showed an average of 6,000 cases a month cleared through this port of exit. McLeod asserted Arkansas is "powerless to halt the practice" because the shipments are made on interstate bills of lading.

They arc carrying out his Armistice Day declaration: "our time has come to attack. . .the Jap has dug himself in. We must land and ig him out." The admiral could look out upon evidences of the navy's growing trcngth. What many of these evi [ences are cannot, of course, be re^ jorted, Among them are repair and construction facilities, mushroom- ng workshops and barracks. Two years ago, anyone looking over the harbor could sec only the vrcckage of battleships, destroyers and other craft. Huge clouds of jlack smoke from oil fires rose !rom the harbor. At nearby Hickam Field and- John Rogers air port wrecked planes were strewn on the runways. Hangars and barracks were bomb,damaged. Installations over Oahu island bore eivdences of attack. The wounded overflowed the hospitals. There were emergency wards in the armory and other buildings. Today the piculre looked bright with the United States on the offensive. Lieut. Gen. Robert C. Richardson, commander of the Army's Hawaian .department, recently warned that another sneak attack was possible. Confidence prevails, however, that il would be repulsed without too great damage if it should come.
