Rommel Launches Push Against Slavs London, Dec. 8—(/P)— Marshal Rommel launched a full-scale often-. _ive against Yugoslav liberated ter^ ritorles and their Bosnian-Serbian .hrust has broken through into the city of Prljepolje, the headquarters of Gen. Josip Broz (Tito) said today. Yugoslav partisans, however, mounted a successful offensive of their own in Croatia, killing 300 Germans and capturing quanlilics of rich booty, Tilo's communique added. It charged the Germans were "perpetrating great atrocities" on Macedonian civilians. Pro-Nazi Croats and Chetnik units were reported in the ranks of the Axis forces, and Rommel was said to have augmented his attacking divisions with reinforcements rushed from Greece, Albania and Austria. ...... Heavy .fighting was reported in the Sarajevo-Travnik, Sarajevo Mokro and Mokro-Tuzla sectors in south-central Bosnia, as well as on the Imotski-Duvno and Livno-Gra- hovo fronts in Hercegovina. The breakthrough from the Bosnian-Serbian-border into Prijepolje came when units of the second Yugoslav "division, after repulsing series of fierce onslaughts, were overcome by superior numbers said the communique broadcast by the "Free Yugoslav radio." Macedonian troops were said to be successfully battling German forces near the towns of Kizevo and Gostivar in Southwest Macedonia near the Albanian border. To the north Tito unleashed a series of attacks against German- garrisoned towns in Slavonia and operations were proceeding "successfully," his communique said, and in the adjoining county of Mo- slavina more than 10 Germans were ambushed and captured. Yugoslav anti-aircraft balteries shot down two German planes over the town of Czma, 30 miles east of Zagreb in Eastern Croatia, the war bulletin said, while bitter fighting raged around the town itself. Tito said 160 Germans were killed in this encounter and quantities of war material were captured.

Big Food Firms Team Against Subsidies Washington, Dec. 8 —(/P)— In assertion "the big food manufacturers of America are lined UD against subsidies in a campaign to lift the lid on food prices," was made before the Senate Banking comrnillee today by Waller P. Reuther, vice president of the United Automobile workers (CIO). "Headed by General Foods Corporation," he said, "these manufacturers are owners of the best known names in packaged and processed foods. "Through a 'food industry war committee' they seek to tie food wholesalers and retailers to their inflation program, and have propositioned the farm bloc to team up in the anti-subsidy campaign. "To camouflage its inflation purpose," he contended, "the food manufacturers' war committee attacks the increased wages of industrial workers as the chief threat f inflation X X X. 'Labor denounces this atlempl of ood-trusters to shift the blame to he workers in order to cover up heir i own campaign to knock out ubsidies and destroy price control. .Vages have beeri more tightly con- rolled than prices and workers lave'shared to a much smaller de- jree than farmers and corporations n the rise of incomes." The committee, nearlng the end of public hearings on the house- passed bill to end food subsidies al :he end of this month heard a spokesman for the national farmers union contend a federal food stamp plan for low-income families could not take the place of general subsidies — a suggestion voiced in previous testimony. "The food stamp plan relies upon the existence of surplus supplies as its base," said Rusell Smith, legislative secretary of the only major farm group supporting the administration's food subsidy program, "and thdre are no surpluses State Can Prepare Primary Ballots Lillle Rock, Dec. 8 (ff)— To fa- cililale voting by men and women in the armed services, Democratic primary ballots may be prepared as soon as the lickel closes 90 days before the date of the preferential primary, July 25, Attorney General Guy E. Williams ruled today. The opinion went to Secrelary of Slale C. G. Hall who sought inler- prelalion of a section of Pope's Digest setting dates for certification of candidates to the county Democratic commiltces and county clerks. Williams held thai the act, providing for certificalion of candidates lo the committees not later than 30 days and to the clerk not laler than 10 days before the primary, did not prevent the preparation of ballots as son as possible after the ticket closed. "Thus, in order that persons in the armed services may have an opportunity to cast an absentee ballot, the stale and counly committees can act immediately after the ticket closes," Williams held.

The Germans piled up a considerable superiority in tanks west of odds but holding on. Russians artil }ery was striking the heaviest blows at the onrushing foe. The Soviet 152-rnillimeter mobile guns were said to be taking a deadly toll of German tanks. Jzyestia reported the Red Army lad taken up strong positions in a new defense line in the Chernyak- hov area, 80 miles west of Kiev. There was no note • of alarm in dispatches from the front. Correspondents said the Germans appeared- to be throwing everything they could spare into the Kiev battle, and consequently were running into trouble farther south around Znamenka. With Stalin back in Moscow and in consultation with his general staff, new energy and strategy may be expected to meet the sudden, and powerful enemy tank thrusts in the Kiev bulge. Communications favor the Germans. They are supplying the Kiev front over excellent highways and two railroads from Germany through Poland. The Russians are unable to use any railroad west of Kiev and few. on the other side of the Dnieper because these were largely destroys in the German sumrn«r retreat. South of Kiev in the Znamenka area, the Bed Army was exploiting jts big breakthrough southwest of Kremerichug. Advancing 20 miles in some places through %vhat once were powerful German lines.

"I'd never dreamed il was such delicale work — it's as fine as embroidery, and requires as much precision. But a bit more wearing — yes, just n bit. Could I take it? Well . . . Ai'lcr you work In pictures on a 12-hour day, I believe you can take anything. Yes, I think 1 could . . ." The Tufts-Goddard combination is a result of their teaming in "So Proudly We Hail." The picture had been released only a couple of weeks when Director Mark Sand- rich and Wriler Allen Scoll began concocting the new one. The question of wartime marriages, around which "I Love a Soldier" revolves, is one that doesn't seem to borthcr the Holly- docsn'l seem, to bother the Holly- ard Ncy first planned lo marry after the war, then changed their minds and look Ihe slcp. Susan Pelcrs and Richard Ouine didn't wait, cither, and Martha O'Driscoll recently returned from her honeymoon to gel back, like the others, inlo picture work. She's doing "Week-End Pass," a comedy aboul a gentleman-welder (Noah Berry Jr.) in a shipyard, which sounds like the reverse angle on the Goddard-Tufls movie. All the gentleman-welder wants, when he gels a holiday as reward for extra zeal, is to sleep '— but he meets Ihe heroine inslead and gels tangled in her troubles. Martha became the bride of LI. Commander Richard Adams, now on active duty at sea. "But ours," she said, "wasn't a quick wartime wedding. We'd known each other more than eight years, and he was the first boy I ever went out wilh," She had jusl had a lellcr from her husband, retailing the fate of his prized and very fancy new car which had jusl arrived at his Philippines base when the Japs struck. His ship had gone on lo help in the evacuation of Java, and his belongings left behind became Japanese booly. He didn't mind losing his clothes and other items, he wrote, but lie was bowed down by word of his new car, brought by an exchanged British consul: the Japs had "pressed" it and sent it to their homeland for—scrap! Alledged Slayer Is Sentenced for Life Liltlc Rock, Doc. 8—Convicted for Ihe second lime in Ihe slaying of Dclores Catherine Smith, 10-year- old school girl, Joe W. Smith, 37, Litlle Rock houscpaintcr, faced a life imprisonment sentence today inslead of Ihe electric chair. A Pulaski circuit court jury which deliberated little over an hour re- turncd a verdict of guilty late last nighl and recommended that Circuit Judge Gus Fulk sentence him lo life. He had been convicted on the same charge Nov. 27, 1942 and given the death penalty. The supreme court reversed the sentence on a technicality and ordered a retrial. Smith's attorney indicated he would appeal Ihc new sentence. The defendant wept when Ihc vcr- dicl was announced. The child disappeared from the Woodruff grammcr school grounds Sept. 25, 1942. Her body was found a month laler in an old cemetery on the outskirts of the cily. The state charged Smith accompanied the child away from school and killed her. They were not related.

Louis inspected the huge Norfork dam near Mountain Home and the site of Ihe proposed Bull Shoals dam today, lie will speak here tomorrow. "Why. that's where it Is, you see, Sir," returned Mr. William Swidger, looking towards his wife in considerable embarrassment. "Mrs. William's got her eye upon me." "But you're not afraid of Mrs. William's eye?" "Why, no, Sir," 'returned Mr. Swidger. "But I wouldn't like to —Milly!—him, you know. Down | in the Buildings." "I didn't know," said Milly, with a quiet frankness, free from any haste or confusion, "that William had said anything about it, or I wouldn't have come. I asked him not to. It's a sick young gentleman, Sir—and very poor, I am afraid—who is too ill to go home this holiday-time, and lives, unknown to any one, in but a common kind of lodging for a gentleman, down in Jerusalem Buildings. That's all, Sir." have I never heard of him?" said the Chemist, ris- hg hurriedly. "Why has he not Tiade his situation known to me? Sick!—give me my hat and cloak. Poor!—what house?—what num- aer?" «'Oh, you mustn't go there, Sir," said Milly. calmly confronting him with her collected little face and folded hands. .f'Not go there?" ''Oh dear no, Sir! He said that of ill the world he would not be tnown to you, or receive help from you—though he is a student in your class." The room hod darkened, more and more. There iocs a very heavy gloom and shadow gathering behind the Chemist's chair. •What more about him?" he asked. "He is engaged to be married when he can afford it," said Milly, "and is studying, I think, to qualify himself to earn a living. I have seen, a long time, that he has studied hard and denied himself much.—How very dark it is!' Mllly's voice resumed, like quiet music very softly played: "He muttered in his broken sleep yesterday afternoon, after talking to me" (this was to herself) "about some one dead, anc some great wrong done that could never be forgotten: but whether to him or to another person, '. don't know. Not by him, I am sure." "And, in short, Mrs. William you see," said Mr. William, "ha done him worlds of good! Bles you, worlds of good!" The room turned darker ant colder, and the gloom and shadow fathering behind the chair was leavier. * * * ''TtfOT content With this, Sir, Mrs. William goes and finds his very night, when she was corning home (why it's not above a couple of hours ago), a creature more like a young wild beast than young child, shivering upon a doorstep. What does Mrs. William do, but brings it home to dry it, and feed it, and keep it till our old Bounty of food and flannel is given away on Christmas morn- :ng.» "Heaven keep her happy!" said -he Chemist aloud, "and you too, Philip! and you, William! I must consider.what to do in this. 1 may desire to see this student, I'll not detain you longer now. Good night!" As tliey passed out and shut the keavy door, which, however carefully withheld, fired, a long train of thundering reverberations when it shut at last, the room turned darker. As the gloom and shadow thickened behind him, out of it there came, by some unreal, unsubstantial process—not to be traced by any human sense—an awful likeness of himself! Ghastly and cold, colorless in its leaden face and hands, but with his features, and his bright eyes, and his grizzled hair, and dressed in the gloomy shadow of his dress, it came into his terrible appearance of existence, motionless, without a sound. As he leaned his arm upon the elbow of his chair, ruminating before the fire, it leaned upon the chair-back, close above him, with its appalling copy of his face looking where his face looked, and bearing the expression his face bore. This, then, was the Something that iMd passed and gone already. This was the dread companion, of the haunted man! (To Be Continued) Army Trainees to Be Discussed at Meet Fayettevillc, Dec. 8 (/P)— The possibilily of Ihc army permitting its trainees to participate in intercollegiate sports next year will come in for plenty of discussion at the Southwest Conference confab in Dallas, Friday and Saturday, says Gene Lambert, University of Arkansas athletic director. Lambert said there was a possibility the army would permit its trainees to play on college teams in 1944. He declared "the situation is loaded with dynamite." Navy-marine trainees were permitted to engage in intercollegiate football during the past season. Arkansas was one of the few major schools in the southwest with an all-civilian team. Because the nation's draft calls for scheduled to fall of early next year, Lambert said he did not believe many high school players would be called in 1944. The university is currently conducting a campaign to allract the slate's bumper crop of high school stars lo Arkansas next year. Irving T. Urrey Buys 679 Taxi Cab Co. Irving T.

Nip Radk»"win7 Great Victory By The Associated Press The Tokyo radio quoted an Imperial headquarters com- ique today as making the fantastic claim that the Japanese army had killed or disabled 193,00 Allied soldiers on the South Pacific and Aleutian- fronts from December; 1942, through November of this year. The broadcast, recorded by the Associated Press, asserted, moreover, that 2,728 Allied planes were destroyed on these fronts during the same period and 158 ships were "accounted for." The communique was represented as saying the Allies had a total strength of 400,000 thousand men in those areas. The Japanese losses for the period were placed at 32,962 killed and 313 planes lost. The broadcast made even more exaggerated claims of losses inflicted on the Chinese. *?•;$ Tlie "Sffmttuler Hug" iucns pule wli«n lie hears llic word siHTifke, because-lie knows that iiieuns stiurl rations for him.

Solomon Ague, western Pennsylvania pioneer, dis- ppsed of Ihe property in the 18th century simply because he was "tried of having Injuns overrun itj" says his great-grandson, Fletcher Ague, now employed at a war plant on the island where several of the navy's smaller craft have been launched. That was sometime before Gen. Anthony/Wayne and jris band of musketeers came to'west- ern Pennsylvania to wipe out the'ln- dian marauders. ; , the AAA was a "tricky agreement" ' that means the big fellows have so ' tied up fertilizer for the coming year that the little farmer doesn't stand a chance at bargaining alone." Arkansas AAA Administralor J. L. Wright said the AAA was assisting in the fertilizer distribution program because of the labor shortage and the transportation problem. "The ruling stretches out the period the fertilizer concerns can operate and distributes transportation over a longeK*period," he said. ."A farmer can't use more fertilizer than his state experiment station recommends. II is regulated by Ihe trade." Pepsi-Cola Company, Long Island City, N. Y. Franchisee!

They have sat behind them, driven them, and serviced them in the cities, villages and on the farms at home.
