Don Faurot of the Iowa Seahawks going so far as to observe this experience may change the entire complexion of the post-war game. It may mean that the freshman rule will be^set aside permanently." Indian's Bobby Hoernschmeyer, who led the Western Conference in passing with 44 completions out of 97 was accepted as a youthful standout along with Eddie Bray, Illinois 17-year-old who tied Bill Daley for ground gaining laurels.

Johnny Lujack, Bob Kelly and George Sullivan of Notre Dame and Ohio State's star scorers, Ernie Parks and Dean Sensanbaugher. Coach Paul Brown of Ohio State said that his two aces, Parks and Sensanbaugher, "could go ahead anyone, anytime, war or no war" but that was the exceptional comment for exceptional men. Navy authorities said that they were not surprised as they had been going it for years. George Munger of Pennsylvania commented "freshmen are still Ereshmen in college football. I don't aelieve there were any more real standouts this year than any other. The kids did a fine job, but they still can't stand up against the more experienced boys." The middle-of-the-road observation was voiced by Andy Kerr of Colgate who pointed out that several frosh stood out, like his Frank Muelheuser, but, generally speaking, that they were not • effective unless teamed with older and more experienced players.

Here's whal confronls Ihc driver: On the norlh side three streets come together and drop in a twisting curve to the level of the underpass. On the south side you emerge to find a street intersection in a deep trench. There's a traffic lighl here—and il wouldn't be a bad idea lo have one on Ihc norlh side, too. City officials arc lo be congral- ulalccl for Ihc conslruclion of the underpass, ending the bugaboo of surface crossings blocked by long parked trains—and special praise is due Cily Engineer C. O. Thomas for having designed Ihc underpass as a surprisingly compacl and cfficienl structure. In view of what the cily and Ihc Missouri Pacific railroad (which paid mosl of Ihc cosl) have done for public convenience il is little enough to ask thai Ihc public use the underpass in a safe and sane manner. * * * Government may order "ceiling" prices on supplies for human beings, and enforce them more or less—but when il comes lo feed for livestock, that's a different matter. Human being have a wide variety of lastcs, hot all- of them being necessities—but cattle only know •thai 'they, 'are fed or hungry. Ypujsaw an illustration of this in ;th'e'WashiW^6h'nowS v last week-end. The governmen^ made a sudden adjuslmenl in Ihe ceiling price of corn—it had to. All this fall the ceiling price of corn was $1.07—bul you couldn't get any al lhat price. On a certain week-end, with corn at the $1.07 ceiling, oats were selling on an unlimited market at 90c. Now it takes two bushels of oats to equal one bushel of corn for feed purposes. Therefore, as one farmer .old me, "The free markel on oals ndicales lhal corn, regardless of .he governmenl ceiling, has a real value of $1.80—and some ot us would like lo have il even at that Keeping Up With Rotion Coupons Processed and Canned Foods; November 1—Firsl day for green slamps A, B and C in Ration Book 4.

HIGHTOWER and WILLIAM FRYE Washington, Dec. 8 —(/P)—Deeds, rather than words, are expected by informed observers here to bring out the full signifciance of Turkey's newly defined role as an associate of the Allies fighting Germany. The impression gained from the latest Cairo communique is strong, that this role is to be one of great importance. At the strategic moment when her help will count most Turkey probably will enter the war. Whether that moment is close at hand or in the indefinite future is a question that can be answered only by President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill, President Ismct Inonu of Turkey or their ranking advisers and Russian associates. Like many another question decided at the historic series of Middle Eastern conferences the world may learn the answer only when it is expressed in action. That her destiny eventually will lead Turkey into military partnership with the Allies 'is regarded as probable for two reasons — her strategic position in relation to the Balkans and her desire for a full voice in the peace councils. The machinery for action is present in the Anglo-Turkish alliance, and the significance of the Cairo meeting, announced last night, may lie in the rcaffirmation of this alliance by the Turkish government not only to the British but to the Americans and Russians as well. Broadly speaking there arc three main avenues of military approach to Germany: (1) Across the English channel and through Belgium and Northern France; (2) Across the Adriatic and through Northern Yugoslavia; .,..(31:" Through the Aefceaivsea'arid the Balkans. Only in the Aegean area have the Allies had little hope of success-: ful attack without the cooperation of still another country. For with the Germans entrenched in Greece and in the Aegean islands, Turkey holds the key .to a drive in this area. t Airfields on the western rim of Turkey would outflank and make possible the quick conquest of such islands as would have to be taken if a thrust into the Balkans were planned. Turkey, in fact, is a bridge from Asia to Southeastern Europe, and the European section of the country, across the Darde- nelles, sea of Marmara and Bospo- rus, is a ready-made bridgehead in the Balkans. Turkey's role .in the events to come may be active, with her army participating in a Balkan offensive, or passive, limited to cession of air bases to the Allies and opening Turkish ports to Allied troops. Active Turkish participation would add an excellent army of perhaps 30 divisions to Allied strength. It is, however, an army weak ni aircraft, in anti-aircraft and other modern guns, and in motorized equipment. The British all along have followed a policy of not requesting Turkey to act until they were prepared to give her every assistance with arms and especially air forces. It seems doubtful the Cairo conference would have resulted in a public announcement of Turkey's political solidarity with the Allies unless the British now feel confident of their strength in that area. Needed equipment presumably could be provided under lend-lcase although it would take lime to train the Turkish soldiers to use it. The British have sent some equipment to Turkey already, but it probably consists largely of small arms. Oddly enough, and indicating German concern over Turkish neutrality, the Nazis are said to have continued their limited shipments of military equipment to Turkey, despite that country's increasingly evident drift toward the Allied camp. The greatest contribution Turkey could make to the Allies, however, would be the cession of airbascs and permission to use the Pea of Marmora and its excellent ports, including Istanbul, to land Anglo- American forces for an offensive through' the Merich valley into Bulgaria. --^11 * <!•<••• TWO MISSING IN ACTION Paragould, Dec. 8 —(/P)— The War Department notified the parents of two Paragould youths yes lerday that their sons were missing in action.

CHESTR ® Cairo, Dec. 8 -(/P)— The three i tween tne , . Turks and the Russians day conference which which Turkis were reaffirmed Ihere was no men- lion of Russia in lhal parl of Ihe communique which declared the existence of "closest unily." Among Ihe significant events of the conference were two last-minute meetings of Imo'nu and Turkish Foreign Secretary Numan Me- nemencioglu with Brilish Foreign Secrelary Anlhony Eden and the British ambassador to Ankara, Hughe Knatchbull-Hugesson. They mel Ihe aflernoon of Dec. 6 and again for more than Iwo hours Ihe morning of Dec. 7. These sessions apparently drew Inonu in on Ihe same subjecls disc- cussed by Eden and Menemencio- glu in Cairo when Ihe Brilish foreign secrelary was returning from the October tripartite conference in Moscow. There was wide speculation at lhal lime that possible cession of Turkish bases to Britain on Eatmon. Indianapolis, hid., is one of the few large cities in the world not situated on a navigable river. President Ismet Inonu, President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill concluded Monday was viewed here today as foreshadowing events of far reaching significance in the Middle East and Mediterranean areas. Conclusion of the parley was announced last night in a communi- que which stated the three government chiefs had studied the general political situation, "examined at length the policy to be followed" and found their nations are bound "by the closest unity." The conference was held in Cario Dec. 4, 5 and 6. The somewhat vague dcclara-1 tions of friendship and "closest unity" were desired by the Turks, it was understood, but the fact the statement went this far was regarded as highly significant. Behind it lay possibilities ranging from complete abandonment of Turkish neutrality to cession of air or other bases or less active help. Harry Hopkins, chairman of the British-American Munitions Assignments Board and President Roosevelt's advisor, attended the conferences. The Turkish delegation contained no military chiefs. The best guess in Cairo — and it was a guess based on some supporting information — was that Turkey would not actively enter the war in the near future, unless a direct cause was given by Germany. (An Associated Press dispatch from Ankara, written Dec. 4, but not relayed until last nighti said Inonu had gone to the conference "prepared to discuss all angles of Turkey's new relationship with the Allies and to (he war." The dispatch declared "there seems little doubt that the conference is in preparation for Turkish entry into the war, although military action may still be delayed for a couple of months.") Few here believe the three days of conferences — at least one of which was attended by the British- Amrican general staffs — were an empty-handed gesture or thai the three government heads did not have something definite in mind j / in placing the following words in the communique: I "The study of all our problems I j in a spirit of understanding and loyalty showed that the closest unity existed between the United States ! of Armerica, Turkey and Great 1 Britain in their attitude toward the world situation. The conversations in Cairo have consequently been most useful and most fruitful for future relations between the four countries concerned." The Soviet ambassador to Turkey, Sergei A. Vinogradov, joined most of the sessions, but, while the communique asserted the "traditional relations of friendship" bq- roughly the same basis as use of the Azores was acquired from Portugal had been under discussion. The prevailing opinion on the just-concluded conference seems to be that although immediate developments will not necessarily follow, President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill would hardly have invited Inonu to Cair unless they had something definite in mind. And the Turkish president would not have accepted unless he had something to ask and give. So far as could be learned officially none of the principals at the conference saw any member of the exiled Greek and Yugoslav gov crnmcnts who are here, including King Peter or King George. And if cither exiled government was pleased at the outcome of the meeting, they gave no outward indication. (A Reuters dispatch from Cairo said, however, Eden met King George II and Premier E. J. Tsou deros of Greece, and King Peter of Yugoslavia. Churchill was reported By HENRY C. CASSIDY Moscow, Dec. 8— (IP) — One of the most desperate German tank and infantry assault launched during the seven-weeks' battle for the Kiev bulge has forced the Red Army to retire fro mseveral towns in the Chernyakhov-Korosten area but Soviet troops have scored important gains southwest of Kremenchug and almost completely eneveloped Znamenka^ vital rail junction in the Dnieper bend, a Russian war bulletin said "today. Russian advices said approximately 1,700 tanks had been hurled into a narrow sector west of Kiev by Field Marshal Fritz Von Mannstein. The Russian communique said the Nazis had lost 53 of their tanks and left at least 1,500 dead on the field of battle. The Nazi gains in the Kiev bulge, however, were offset by Russian gains to the south. Here three Red Army columns were driving on Znamenka from separate directions and one already wa? within four miles of the town's gates, the com- munique indicated. Fall of this strategic rail junction, which front dispatches said was apparently inevitable, would tend to disrupt the whole German communications and supply system in the vast area below Kiev, and would Undoubtedly help to relieve enemy pressure on the Kiev salient. Sixteen German strongholds fell before the Soviet advance below Kremenchug, the communique reported. One of them was the railroad station of Pantayevka, 10 miles southeast of Znamenka, marking a 12-mile gain along the railroad from Alexandriya. Two of the four rail lines serving Znamen- ta have now been severed, leaving only the routes sputh to Nikolaev and , southwest toV".Kirovograd in Nazi possession. The rail towns of Tsibuleyo, 14 miles northwest, and Dimitrovka, seven miles northwest, were captured in Tuesday's opening drive'in this sector. The Russians counted more than 1,000 dead Germans on the blizzard-swept approaches to Znamen- ta after yesterday's fighting. "A considerable number" of prisoners were taken, while three railroad trains complete with supplies fell into Soviet hands. Seventy-five enemy tanks were wrecked — a total of 128 for the day, the com- munique announced. With the battle for Znamenka reaching a decision, front dispatches pointed out the Soviet armies under Gen. Rodion Y. Malinovsky were now less than 140 miles from the Odessa-Lwow railway . to the west, key to all German communications in the Ukraine. Krivoi Rog, enemy-held manganese center southeast of Znamenka, loomed as an early objective on the Red Army schedule. Adverse weather in White Russia, where Soviet advance columns are converging on the rail centers of Zhlobjn and Rogachev, northwest of Gomel, has temporarily prevented them from taking advantage of the favorable conditions created in this and other sectors by recent Russian successes.

Chinese Hit Blow With Loss of Changteh Chungking, Dec. 8 (/P) Fall of the ancient city of Changteh after bitter fighting in which both'sides suffered heavy losses was announced by the Chinese high com-' mand ..yesterday, and it was acknowledged here the setback represented a severe economic and military blow to China. Loss of the city opened the prospect of a new Japanese drive' on Changsha, capital of Hunan province, which the invaders thrice before have tried -unsuccessfully to take. At the same time the Victory gave the Japanese control of .the "Rice Bowl" region and cut the Hunan-Szechwan supply line, thus depriving the Chinese army of one of its principal sources of supply. The Chinese communique 'announcing the fair!'of- Changteh, once one of the mosl Ihriving spots in Cenlral China, said little more than 300 men of the Chinese-57th Division had survived the bloody battle, which epded Dec...3. !„.'-'..-. * (The 'Japanese announced' Saturday* they had completed occupation of Changteh.)

Headquarters said today the army postal system, under a deluge of more than a third of a million bags of holiday gift packages weighing about 10,000 tons, had done more business in the last six weeks than in Ihe entire preceding year of "the North African campaign. 'Throughout the Mediterranean area, former Italian prisoners now organized into special labor batla- lions are helping transfer the mail sacks from ships to trains, from freight cars lo trucks, and then on to the troops. In one instance, an engineering unit sent a couple of amphibious trucks to receive thousands of Christmas parcels from a ship, and on the Italian front mules are lak- ing gifls over slippery mountain trails to combat units who cannol be reached by any vehicle. Pact to Have Good Effect in Pacific By WILLIAM BONI Soulhwest Pacific Allied Headquarters, Dec. 8 (/P)— What effec will Germany's defeat have in shortening the war against Japan? The Cairo and Teheran declare tions to end the Eueopean con flict with the greatest possible dispatch has brought speculation as to what it would mean in relation to the Pacific war. At least one high-ranking Allie miltary aulhority believes the ef feel likely will be far greater lhan generally eslimaled, but he cau lions against counting prematurely on Ihe fall of Ihe Nqzjs. He said there's no question tha such a fall would make il possibl to increase enormously the flow o men and war materials into Ih various Pacific theaters. But —and he speaks on the basi of considerable experience in com balling the Japanese — here agai he cautions that a setup in man power and supplies in itself won' be enough. Men and materials must b given proper, priorities in order t achieve the greatest effect and b of the most value. The military's first thought is of supplies moving and combat units following. There are no ready-made bases in the Southwest Pacific such as the Allies have been able to convert lo their use in Ilaly. Here all inslallalions musl be brought lo for ward bases, musl be built time and ag'ain to keep the war machine moving. Docks must be constructed, anchorages found where none existed before, and airstrips carved out of fields of kunai grass. All this involves a tremendous transport problem in Terrain where overland communication facilities are virtually non-pxisteul. Army has captured the summit'of >( , ofty Mt.
