Remember the day you handled the ball five times for five touchdowns , against MichigS*, Mr, Grange? George Walmsley, the Texas high school Wonder, can look back on a day like that. He handled the ball three times for three touchdowns, all within 90 seconds; he could have done more, but he wasn't in any longer. Walmsley, the 147-pound triple- thrcater of the unbeaten, untied Goose Creek Ganders, did it against Conroc, racing 67, 66 and 37 yards for his scores. This kind of football is nothing new for George. George made his debut in 1940 at the age of 14. The coach sent him in a game to "hold down the score." Walmsley proceeded to make three touchdowns in that final period — one on an 80-yard run. Texas teams have been trying to stop him ever since. Now he's a senior and has led his team to eleven straight victories. He has scored 12 touchdowns, passed for the same number, ran 24 punts back for 315 yards and intercepted five passes. But with all his great passing, blocking and running, his most notable feat was in the Port Arthur game of 1941. CHILD'S TRICYCLE, in good condition. MUST BE Phone 768. 7-3tc SMALL VICTROLA. 1039-J.

SPOBTS ROUNDUP -•r!i|hS.Fi]knw,Jr. Associated Press Sports Columnist New York, Dec. 9 — C/P)— Its easy to blame almost anything on a war — it can't argue with you — and that may be-why some old timers in sports profess to see some similarity between recent rumors 'about gambling by professional football players and baseball's great scandal of 1919. . no proof has been brought up to support these rumors and there probably isn't any basis for them. still there are certain similar conditions that might weaken the public's- confidence in pro football. . . The foundations of the Black Sox affair were laid during the war years,: when there .was a, free and and easy attitude toward .money gambling^and when many athletes felt they'd be too old to return, to sports after the fighting ended.'. . Those same sentiments prevail today (take a look at the figures on rac e track gambling) and while rumors can be heard, it will take more than denials ,and offers of rewards to convince all the public that they have no foundation. 1941 CHEVROLET, THREE-QUAR- ter ton, pickup.

Launching An Idea When the New York boxing writers met yesterday to award the eddie Neil Memorial Trophy it was suggested that an effort be made to have his name included among the sports celebrates and war correspondements for whom Liberly ships have been named. . . To those of us who knew Eddie and worked with him it seemed that nothing less than a battleship would do until a letter was read from Mrs. James J. Corbett in which she said that if the former heavyweight champion were alive nothing would please him more — not even winning the title from John L. Sullivan — than having one of these ships carry hisname . . as Eddie Neil probably would have said: "anything good enough for Jim Corbett is good enough for me." Texas Cowboy Gets Chance to Meet Nazis New York, Dec. 9 —(/P)— Some months ago former Cowboy James W. Sheppard wrote his hometown paper, the Throckmorton (Tex) Tribune, that he would "like to meet the enemy face to face with a forty-five smoking in both hands." Sheppard, 24, now with the Fifth Army in Italy, has met the enemy face to face and he has licked him in a melee of mud, rifles, grenades, pistols and machine guns, the New York Herald Tribune says in a copyrighted story by Correspondent Homer Bigart. It all began when Sheppard and another Throckmorton resident, Sergeant Jack Sullivan, got trapped on the slopes of La Difen- sa on a reconnaissance patrol. They dove into a hole as machine gun bullets formed a solid wall above their heads, Sullivan managed to escape after lobbing grenades at the enemy. Five Germans raced toward Sheppard's position and he raised his rifle, found the sights clogged with mud and fired offhand, just like Sheriff Jack McWhorter taught him to shoot back in Throckmorton county, Bigart relates. "I was surprised when the first one fell," Sheppard said. "I got the next one, and then the third one comes running to within 20 yards before he goes down grabbing his belly. The other two started turning away. I shot one in the shoulder. He had killed two men, wounded three and sent others flying. After weathering another shower of enemy grenades and mortar fire Sheppard made his way back to a command post where he volunteered as a muleskinncr. Thinking about what the people in Throckmorton might say if they heard he was playing nurse to a jackass instead of meeting the enemy face to face, Sheppard changed his mind. His command post officer prom ised to send him back to the front at dawn. Fights Last Night By The Associated Press Elizabeth, N.

American FDR Approves Legislature's Father Draft Bill —Washington Washington, Dec. 10 — (H'} —President Roosevelt has approved the father draft bill, designed to delay induction of pre-war fathers into Ihc armed services. The action was announced by the , While House loday. The place j where Ihc chief cxcculivc aclcd ' was not disclosed. The president had been ur«ccl by War Manpower Commissioner Pnul V. McNutl lo vclo Ihe legislation. The president's approval raised a question as to whether McNutl authority over administration of the selcclive service syslem. The aulhorily, vesled n. *..:.;;:r General Lewis B. Hershey, Ihc selective service director, cumu • under McNutl's dircclivcs previously. How extensively the act will delay Ihc indudions of pre-Pearl Harbor fathers remains to be seen, of_ liy; is "f eported ' a closed meeting of the/National Association of Manufacturers in New York City yesterday that about 1,000,000 pre-Pcnrl Hnvbor fathers would have to be inducted by June 30, 1944, to meet present schedules. The expressed intent of the present legislation is to prevent to induction of any of this group of fathers until all available physical. ly fit single men and non-fathers have been put into uniform. The law provides, however, the application of this principle within the discretion of the selective service chief need not disrupt the orderly calling of men for service. The bill was approved by the president despite McNutt's assertion it would "seriously weaken" the over-all manpower program by dividing control of military and civilian recruitments. Members of Congress disagreed as to the practical effect of the legislation, but Senator Johnson (D- Colo), a member of the conference drafting committee, estimated it would prostpone the induction of some fathers for "two or three months." The legislation sets up M ''national pool" plan for selective service, at the bottom of the draft list and that none of hem be called so long as non-fahcrs arc uvnilabl-3 for cail anywhere in the ruUio.i. An "escape" 'clause written into the bill at ilie request ot soloetivc (Continued on Page Three) business is prctly unanimous right now about cutting down federal civilian authority and building up local authority. I have here a report by Senator Harry F. Byrd, Virginia Democrat, chairman of the Joint Committee on Reduction of Noncss'cntial Federal Expenditures, which shows, among olher Ihings, that: There are still 35,000 em- ployes i'n the WPA, NYA and other Washington organizations which supposedly have cither been liquidated entirely or greatly curtailed. Of the 300,000 useless federal jobs which* Senator Byrd's committee- would eliminate, more than 10 per cenl arc found in bureaus which congress thought it had badly slashed or wiped out. It is to the inlcrcsl of sound American business lo sec lhal federal peace-lime extravagance is brought under control. But at the same lime il should be recognized thait the underlying aim of federal organizations like Ihe NYA—<lhe training of youlh for skilled jobs- was esscnlially sound. Local citizens, therefore, must see lo il Ih" 1 ' ^eful work represented by the old NYA is incorporated into the local public schools everywhere—unless you are willing to lot another federal NYA arise after Ihe war. The post-war period will most certainly intensify the demand for occupational training. Of the 10 'million returning" soldiers, 'and sailors perhaps a million will have gotlen skilled training in the ai-med forces. Therefore the requirements for a sludenl who expects to go out in the world and find a fulRime job will automatically be raised. He or she will find lhal Ihc voca- lional training which hilherto has been a take-it-or-lcavc-it mailer has suddenly become an absolulc necessity. Whenever the level of skilled training in adults is suddenly boosted skyward—as it is in these days of mechanized warfare—then "Ihe heal is on" for every studetSl loo. And Ihis is an opportunity for every local citizen to help brace local institutions and local author- ily by seeing lo il lhal Ihe public schools in Ihe coming post-war period do not fumble the job of •eplacing Ihe lale NYA. • • • Keeping Up With Ration Coupons Processed and Canned Foods; November 1—First day for green stamps A, B and C in Ration Book 4.

V. Fills, head? of Ihc vocational training department of Hope High School, told Hope Rotary club at its luncheon today noon in Hotel Barlow. Mr. Fit/Is was presenled on a program arranged by Alex H. Washburn, who told Ihe club Ihe history of apprenticeships in Europe and early America, pointed out lhal today's apprentice must be a person with a good basic schooling, and then introduced Mr. Fitts as the man who is dovetailing local students inlo local business on a part-lime basis. "Nol all our students are adapted lo Ihc jobs Ihey arc put into," Mr. Fills said, '^and it is up to you business men lo help us weed them out. "The tolal amount of money earned by part-lime s I u d e n t workers in Arkansas during Ihesc wartimes is, of course, considerable; and yet money is not the real goal of this program. The real goal is to put students through a training of two years or so lo fil Ihem for full-lime jobs in skilled crafts, or dislribulive posls in merchandising." Club Presidenl James H. Jones urged the Rolarians to turn put for Ihe annual foqtiball program at 7:30 o'clock tonight in the High School cafeteria, when about 150 guesls are expecled. Among the speakers will be: Dr. Alice Barlow Brown of Hope, long-time medical missionary in China; and John Tomlin, coaoh of the University of At- kansas.

Invasion May Follow Strong Pacific Attacks —War in Pacific • By MORRIE LANDSBERG Associated Press War Editor American sea and air power has bla/ed a strong challenge to Japanese supremacy along the eastern fringe of the enemy's island defense line anchored to battered Ra- baul and the Pacific fortress of Truk. Bombardments by ships and planes came as Ihc possible preliminary lo aclual invasion of the Nipponese bases lhal stand in Ihc way of Allied pqnctration inlo Ihc Philippines and 1 Ihe Nclhcrlands East Indies. Formidable forces of Ihc Pacific flcol slcamcd inlo enemy waters lo deliver Ihe firsl naval bombard- rricnt of ovel-shapcd Nauru island, 50 miles wcsl of Ihc Gilbert islands, in Ihe Wake of aerial riads on three islands in the 80-mile long Marshall group lo the northeast. Allied planes kept up Ihc systematic pounding of Ihe invasion-vulnerable lower lip of New Brilain, the home of Rabual, while Australians speeded the cxlcrmin=ilioii of the Japanese from Ihc Huon peninsula of New Guinea with the cap- lure of Wareo in Ihe mountain jungle. Viclorious Chinese troops secured their hold on rccaplrued Changtch in Hunan province while fighting still raged northwest of the "rice bowl" city. The Chinese army spokesman declared Ihc Japanese lost 15,000 killed and 25,000 wounded in the 40-day battle for Chang- teh. : :.., The spokesman, -Maj. Gen. C., CJ Tseng, termed it the ..bitterest battle thai ''war-torri' .China has seen since Shanghai in i937. He praised the American 14th Air Force for ils supporl of • Chinese ground troops in the bloody fight. The Berlin radio quoted a spokesman at Japanese headquarters in China arc receiving; orders "to China has become more confused and more serious, and therefore is receiving greater attention." From the same source came the assertion that American fliers in China ere receiving orders 'to bomb the Japanese mainland and communication between Japan and Ihc mainland." Carrier aircraft joined the American warships in laying down a barrage of bombs and shells on equatorial Nauru Dec. 8. II was Ihe third time the atoll, which stands on the i-oute lo Truk, had been al- lacked since September. Delails of Ihc latest raid were nol announced immediately. On the previous day, Liberators of the Seventh Army air force raided Taroa, Millc and Jaluil in the Marshalls.

Willkie's Basic Platform Has Four Points By JACK BELL Washington, Dec. 10 —(/P) — A four-point "basic political phifoso- phy'> emerged today as a possible pro-convention platform for Wendell L. Willkie in his bid for re- nomination as the Republican presidential candidate'in 1944. Enunciated by John Cowles, Minneapolis publisher, this philosophy consists of four Willkie beliefs slightly reminiscent in form, if not in content ,of President Roosevelt's four freedoms for the world. Cowles wrote to C. Nelson Sparks, former Akron, Ohio, mayor, to protest charges ' in Sparks' book, "One Man — Wendell Willie", that Willkie supporters had attempted to buy votes at the 1940 Republican convention, but his exposition o£ Willkie's beliefs evidently was intended for much wider, circulation. Cowles said Willkie believes in (1) civil liberties; (2) the free enterprise "chance to get ahead" system; (3) the need for international cooperation for peace and stability and (4) frank talk by candidates about vital national problems. Cowles said, in his letter to Sparks he was present in a Philadelphia hotel room during the 1940 convention when Willkie received two telephone calls from , responsible members of the party offering to'"swing votes his-way on the next: ballot if he would promise a, cabinet post for one unnamed person and support the vice presidential aspirations of another. Although Cowles said it looked as if Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio might be nominated on the next ballot, Willkie refused to make any deal. Taft commented last night "nobody had any promise'of a cabinet post from me, either." # Supporting Cowles' statement 'that'Willkie avoided deals. Senator Ball (R-Minn) said he had personal knowledge that former Gov. Harold E. Stassen of Minnesota had stipulated that there should be- no deals of any kind when he agreed, after making his keynote speech to the convention, to become WUikie's convention manager. Although Cowles said Uiat "millions of Republicans" want to see Willkie renominated and elected, John D. M, Hamilton, former nn- t i o n a 1 committee chairman, brought back a different viewpoint when he returned east from a tour of 17 Western states, At Philadelphia yesterday Hamilton said Willkie's support for the 1944 nomination was not as strong as it had been represented. He added lie had found underlying support everywhere for Governor Thomas E. Dewey of New York, who has said he would not be a candidate, Two Hurt in Auto Accident Gentry, Dec. 10 —(/P)— The collision of their automobile and a Kansas City Southern freight yesterday left Mr. and Mrs. E.

Allies Crack Nazi Defenses After 9-Day Baffle : V.By EDWARD KENNEDY .Allied Headquarters, Algiers, Dec. 10 —(/P)— The Fifth Army has cracked German defenses on both sides of the Via Casilina at Mignano in a bloody nine-day offensive brought to a smashing climax .ftt American troops who seized Mt. Samucro in "the battle of the clouds," Allied headquarters a,n- riounccd today. At the same time it was disclosed Canadians, infantry and 'tanks, spearheading the Eighth Army along the Adriatic, were smashing forward on an eight-mile front after forcing a second crossing of the Moro river. ( * Fighting against the strongest man-made defenses and toughest natural obstacles yet encountered in Italy, Lt. Gen. Mark W. Clark's veteran British and American troops have wiped out the German mountain line on both sides of the main road to Rome and arc stabbing into secondary defenses in the direction of Cassino. Measured in miles, their advance lias not been great since Gen. Clark gave the word for the onslaught, and they still are faced by a formidable network of fortifications covering the hillsides as far as Cassino and beyond. The deepest penetration of the offensive has been only about three miles. ! -;. But by the yardstick of military achievement their success is one of the greatest of the Mediterranean theater, for they have smashed in little over a week that the enemy hoped would stand as an impregnable line for many months, and they have overcome terrain and fortifications substantially more,difficult than-those in Tunisia which stalled'the'Allied attack for a whole winter.

Liquor Supply Being Hoarded Says Senator Washington ,Dec. 1 0—(#>)— A 42 percent decline in whisky withdrawals from warehouses in the period from May through September was atribuled loday by Senalor Van Nuys (D-Ind) lo "hoarding" by dislillers, wholesalers and re- lailers in an effort to oblain higher prices. Van Nuys, chairman of a Senale Judiciary subcommillee invesli- gating the current liquor shortage, told reporters testimony by Stewart Berkshire, deputy internal revenue collector, subslanlialed Van Nuy's belief there is a definite widening of the liquor "black market," "Hundreds and hundreds of individuals — many of them persons who never drink a drop — have bought up whisky as an investment," Van Nuys asserted. Asked how they intended to make a profit under price ceilings, he replied he was satisfied many of the individuals were selling on the "black market" at very high prices. He said he suspected also some have hopes the legal ceilings will crack and that retail prices will go up. The committee heard there are 117,000,000 gallons of whisky from four .to'eight years old in bonded warehouses thai could be lapped lo relieve a thirsty market if the government would cut tax-exempt shortage time lo four years.

FDR Visits Island of Malta, Presents Defenders a Scroll on Behalf of American People BuyCM Deleware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri all were represented in the Confederate Congress although none seceded from the Union during the War Between the States. By The Associated Press Vallelta, Malta, Dec. 10 —Traveling by plane, President Roosevelt visited this bomb-marked British Mediterranean base Wednesday, presented its people an illuminated scroll on behalf of the American people, and declared the United States would stand staunchly with the British Empire and other Allies after the war to make "it a victory worthwhile." Enroute from the series of epic conferences in which he and Prime Minister Churchill engaged in the Middle East, the presidenl arrived in a huge C-54 .Douglas four-engine Iroop transport with an escort o? 20 Lightning and Spitfire fighters. The scroll, which eventually will be cast in bronze and placed in Valletta's main square, saluted Malta and its defenders for "valorous service far above and beyond the call of duty" during the- dark period while Axis aircraft kept the island under a virtual constant alert. The president's plane touched on the world's most bombed airdrmos at 9:50 a. m., 'Wednesday, after appearing over the island out of a brilliant blue, cloud-flecked sky. Roosevelt was accompanied by General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Admiral William D. Leahy, Ihe president's chief of slaff; Harry Hopkins, Lt. Gen. Carl A. Spaat?., commander of the Northwest African Air Forces; Rear Admiral Ross T, Mclntire, v the president's personal physician; Major John Boelliger, and Maj. Gen. Walter B. Smith,, Eisenhower's chief of staff. The unprecedented visit followed one by Prime Minister Churchill, who had called at Malta en route to the Cairo conferences. (The London Daily Herald yos- lerday reporled "slrong feeling" in London lhat President Roosevelt might; visit ..there--"before,-American troops leave Ihese shore's"' and parlicipale in a final roundup of plans for the invasion of' Europe from Ihe west.) A guard of honor, including an RAF unit, 50 British marines, 50 Royal Navy men, and 100 Uniled Slales and Maltese troops, lined up on the airfield with a R'oyal Artillery band to welcome Mr. .Roosevelt, first president of the ' United States to visit the island. First to greet the president was Field Marshal Lord Gort, commander-in-chief of Malta, Others presenled to the president on the field were Monsignor Michele Go'nzi, bishop of Gozo, representing the archbishop who is ill; Chief Justice Sir George Borg; Vice Admiral Louis Henry Keppel Hamilton, flag officer in charge; Gen. Seginald Oxley, general officer commanding; and Air Vice Marshal Sir Kennelh Rodney Park, air officer commanding. • "My boy has lold me about you," Ihe presidenl said in a chal with Bishop Gonzi, but he failed to say which one of his boys, With Lord Gort, the president stepped into a jeep named "Husky" which belongs to Air Vice Marshal Park and is one of three pre- senled lo Gorl by Gen. Eisenhower when Sicily was invaded. As Ihe jeep came lo a slop in fronl of Ihe guard of honor, Ihe band slruck up "The Slar Spangled Banner." The presidenl look Ihe salulc and Ihe Stars and Stripes broke but on the mast behind Ihe guard. Addressing' himself lo Field Marshal Gorl, Ihe troops and the people of Malta, Presidenl Roosevcll said: "Nearly a year ago Ihe prime minister and I were at Casablanca shortly after the landings by British and American troops in North' Africa, and al Ural lime I lold the prime minister, some day we would once more control the whole of the Mediterranean and that then I would go to Malta. "For many months I have wanted on behalf of the American people lo pay some lilllc tribute to this island and to all the people, both civil and military, who during three years have contributed so much lo democracy, nol jusl here but all over Ihc civilized world. "So al lasl I have been able lo come. Al lasl I have been able lo see something of this historic land and I wisli I could stay, bul I have many Ihings to do. "I may toll you, though, that during these past three weeks the prime minister and I feel we, too, have slruck slrong blows for the future of the human race and so in Ihis simple way I am taking the opportunity to do what all the American people would join with me in doing," After this lalk Ihe presidenl read Ihe following from, an illuminated scroll in a handsome wooden case which he said was "a citation from the presidenl of the United Stales speaking on behalf of all the American people:" "In Ihe name of Ihe people of Ihe Uniled Slates of America I salute and ils defenders who in the cause of freedom and justice and decency throughout the world : have rendered valorous service far above and beyond the call of duty, V "Under repeated fire from the skies, Malta stood alone and unafraid in the center of the sea, one tiny bright flame in the darkness, a beacon of hope in the clearer days which have come. "Malta's" bright story of human fortilude and courage will be read by posterity with wonder and grat- titude through all the ages. "What was done in this island maintains all the highest traditions of gallant men and women who from the beginning of time have lived and died to preserve civilization for all mankind. "Signed Franklin D. Roosevelt. "President, Dec. 7, 1943." The president dated the scroll Dec. 7, the day before his .visit, be-; cause it: was the second aniver- sary of the Uniled States' entry into the war. "The United Stales will proceed until the war is won," Mr. Roosevelt told his listeners. "But more than that we will stand shoulder to shoulder with, the British Empire and our other allies in making it a victory worthwhile." Replying, Lord Gort said the people of Malta were "very sensible of Ihe greatness of this occasion" and that it was a day they would never forget. "No one can be asked to do more in war than fulfill his or her duty, none can do less." Gort added. "And that you and the citizens of Ihe Ur»ited States of America should feel the armed forces and people of this island have not.failed the United Nations is in itself a full reward. The island's governor then asked the president's consent to "reproduce - the -citation- 'in jljrpnze' • ; and place it in Valletta's palace square where "it will stand in all weathers as a permanent.monument of this great and unique occasion." The whereabouts of the president has not been disclosed since he and the prime minister conferred in Cairo Dec. 4-6 with President Ismet Inonu of Turkey. Before that, he and Churchill had visited Teheran, Iran, Nov. 28-Dec. 1, to confer with Premier Stalin following talks Nov. 22-26 in Cairo with Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek.

(Butch O'Hare, dubbed by President Roosevelt one of the greatest combat fliers in aviation history, is missing in action. The St. Louis ace who won the Congressional Medal of Honor for blasling five Jap bombers out of the sky lone-handed in Ihc battle of the Coral Sea was reported by the navy lo have disappeared on a flight mission, probably somewhere in Ihe Soulh Pacific.
