' Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph * or Coble. By'OEWITT MACKENZIE 'Associated Press War Analyst Among the most-dramatic situations—and I believe- one of the most important—thus far - : recorded in an acte week-end rests in the political-military events in the explosive Balkans. It will, I suggest, be worth while for readers to watch this fiery cock-pit of Southeastern Europe. That theater not only is of military moment to the Allies, but there we have under way signifi-. cant political developments which will mean much to the post-war world. fThree thrones—those of Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Greece—are rocking like small boats in a hurricane. The governments of Rumania and Hungary.also are being lashed by the storm. These political upheavals strike me as symptomatic of what he may expect in many parts of the disrupted European continent as soon as the war ends. ; , The Yugoslav crisis is of cast importance, and this revolves around the colorful leadership of Marshal Josip Broz—"Tito," they call him—commander of the Partisan guerrilla forces, which are made up of peasants and hardy WORKING COT. mountain folk. War makes and un- settled ladies makes personalities, and it looks Call 660. as though one of the striking figures of our global conflict is emerging from the obscurity of the Balkans in the person of Tito As the cards now lie, Tito is going to have a major role in smash ing the Hitlerite forces in the Bal kan peninsula. But that's likely to be only part of his mission. Look ing ahead through the smoke o battle, I think we snail find him influencing the political future o his o-.vn country and consequently ot the rest of the Balkans. Many of Tito's followers wear the badges of communism and sa- late with the clenched fist. They are opposed to the government of ' youthful King Peter, and very recently he has proclaimed a partisan government. The Turkish radio says Moscow has recognized this government, though Moscow hasn't confirmed this. • Tito started ' his resistance against the Germans with a handful' of crudely armed men and boys. Under his leadership this guerrilla force grew until he has two hundred thousand or more—a motley crowd wearing divers uniforms, or ordinary garb. So well has .the marshall done that we name; the extraordinary development of the Anglo - American Allies throwing the most of their military support to him, although they had been backing King Peter's government in Cairo and his little army in the field under his minister of war. General Mi- hailovich this is a doubtly interesting situation inasmuch as the two armies are at loggerheads and have even had armed clashes. Th,e Allies take the practical viewpoint that since Tito is doing most of the fighting, he gets most of,,the military support. Moscow has been favoring the partisans all along. Hitler, recognizing Tito's threat l) I ' to 1he entire German set-up in the Ijf* 1 'Balkans, is throwing strong forces 'against the partisan leader. Yes- levday the marshal issued a ring- his • followers 23-t Grid Conference Change Aired At Meeting Little Rock. Dec. 13 —(/P)— Ath- etics as usual will be the watch- vord of the Arkansas High school conference for at least another year but the long-discussed reorganization of the circuit may be:on>e a realty in 1945. The conference voted at its winter meeting here Saturday to resume full peacetime operations, including basketball this season, im mediately and named a committee to draft a reorganization plan fot submission next fall. The loop formally awarded Pine Bluff the 1943 football championship; denied Fort Smith's request to count its victory over Clarksville as an official conference contest; elected J. F. Patterson, Pine Bluff, to the board of directors; and reelected all its officers. E. H. Quigley, Little Rock, reorganization committee chairman, said no matter what plan was drafted it could not go into effect until the 1945 football season. Pointing out that the Arkansas Athletic Association must sanction the plan, Quigley asserted his committee would hold its initial meeting SPORTS ROUNDUP •If lift! MM* ft.

LOFTUS Washington, Dec. 13 —(/P)— Soft coal operators who have reached conditional agreement with John . Lewis' United Mine Workers /ant a further price increase of 10 enls or more a ton before making ic pact effective. The accord reached Saturday by subcommittee ot miners and op- rators is substantially the same as he agreement between Lewis and nterior Secretary Ickcs, under vhich Ickes is operating the mines, jlus an individual payment of $40 o the miners as a retroactive set- lement for underground Iravel ime. It provides all increased costs shall be passed on to the consum- Soft coal price increases averaging 17 cents a ton were allowed by Stabilization Director Fred M. Vinson on the basis of the Ickcs-Lcwis contract. Some districts got as much as 30 cents a ton and others nothing. The operators, who had asked increases ranging from 40 to 55 cents a ton, consider these allowances inadequate. Greater production is offsetting the increased costs to some extent however, and the operators are prepared lo modify Ihcir original demands but will press for at least 10 cenls on top of the 17. In submitting the tentative agreement to Ickcs, the operators called on him to make good his promise to help them obtain what they regard as adequate prices. Ickcs wants to get rid of his job as mines custodian but said he would not turn back the properties until an operator-miner agreement is In effect. The operators want free run of their properties again, too, but not at a loss. They would prefer to leave them In government custody, they say, and sue in the court of claims after the war.

So this thai I am writing about today is, within one man's experience at least, a 20-year-old story— a story not much different in 1943 than it was in 1923. The occasion for writing this piece today is a comment which School Group to Keep Out of Politics Little Rock, Dec. 14 —(/P)— Direct or indirect participation of ed- ucution department personnel in forthcoming political campaigns will be counter to a policy established by the state board of education yesterday. The board adopted a resolution offered by Chairman L. A. Watklns of Harrison opposing such participation "in any way in any campaign." •The board asked division heads |and employes to refrain from political activity and directed that the clerical staff "shall not be required to prepare, distribute, mail or actively assist in the dissemination of literature dealing with any candidate's campaign." The board also approved a plan the Southern Weekly (Dallas, I subm| tt e d by A. S. Ross, supcrvi- Tcxas) made upon the .biennial sor of lne slato vocational educational division, to enlarge and add several new services to the existing vocational program. The plan entails use of new federal funds for rehabilitation and training of persons with permanent physical disability.

The federal publication claimed that the 13 Southern Slates stand at the bottom of the list in point of education. In its reply the Southern Weekly wrote: "One set of fundamental facts which is left entirely out of consideration, and which should never be omitted when comparative figures on education arc quoted in Southern newspapers, may be stated in a single sentence. It is this: "The 13 Southern States have 34.79 per cent of all persons of scholastic age in the United States, but have only 26 per cent of the adult population which must rear and educate them, , and they receive only 1C.1 per cent of the national income, out of which the bill for education, along with other expenses of living, must bo paid ... "If the people of the South set aside . for education, precisely the same percentage of their income per scholastic that the people of the rest of the country set aside for this purpose, they. '.would, ha ve for ,aac4v person of school age less than 37 centi to every dollar that the rest of the country would have to spend for the education of each pewon of school age." The Southern Weekly cites as a single example the comparison between Texas, which spends only $70.83 per child per year, and California, which spends $150.15. But Texas has nearly 400,000 more persons of school age than California — while California has over a million more adults than Texas. * * * .What does all this mean? It simply means that the story I was writing about 20 years ago is still true— youth has been leaving the South and its old folks and children while other sections acquired the adult wage-earners that the South had reared and educated. And what is the remedy for this? To fight everlastingly, without compromise, for the economic freedom of the South. The true fipures on education alone, just cited above, are an indictment of the South as a place that puts politics first and economics a poor second.

The raid followed up a daylight assault on unspecified objectives in Western Germany yesterday by formations of U. S. Liberators and Flying Fortresses, during which American airmen shot down 15 Nazi fighters to bring to 187 the total number of German planes downed by tha.-EJghtlv: Air Force this month. ' • According to official figures the heavy bombers have downed 257 enemy planes in their last 15 missions since Oct. 20. Fourteen of Che German fighters downed yesterday were bagged by the bomber gunners. The other was dstroyed by the strong fighter escort of Thunderbolts and light- nings, which made their longest round trip of the war in this theater. Marauder medium bombers also went out yesterday for their first mission in eight days, blasting a Nazi fighter base at Schipol near Amsterdam. American losses in the day's operations were five heavy bombers, vo medium bombers and twi, fighters. Cautioning against possible over- optimism at the comparatively low bomber losses yesterday, Maj. Gen. Frederick L. Anderson, commanding the Eighth Air Force bomber command, said the attacks were planned to take advantage of weather conditions greatly favoring the bombers and hampering the enemy fighters. In recent raids the Germans have avoided the'American fighters in order to get at the bombers. Gunners aboard the bombers have destroyed almost twice as many enemy planes as the escorting fighters since Oct. 14, when 60 Falls to Russians ; ij ' • " ' " \ y- -> Fortresses were lost on the raised ... so youth will be willing to remain in the South. Senate Gets Bill to Hike Price of Oil •Washington, Dec. 14 —(/T'j— The administration's anti-inflation dikes .sprang another leak today as legislation to force an increase in crude oil prices moved from House to Senate. Senator Thomas (D-OklaJ announced he would seek to add the measure to anti-food subsidy legislation, also passed by the house and awaiting Senate action, unless the Office of'Price Administration acts immediately to boost petroleum prices by at least 35 cenls a barrel, in line with the House mandate. Both measures have been denounced by administration leaders as inflationary. The oil bill sailed through the House lale yesterday 171 lo 92.

Compared with the 257 destroyed by the bombers in Ihe lasl 15 missions, beginning with the Oct. 20 raid on Durcn, the fighters have accounted for 171 .German planes. In addition 65 kills have been recorded on unescorted missions. Nips Finally Admit the Loss of Tarawa New York, Dec. 14 -<-(/P)—The Tokayo radio indirectly acknowledged the loss of Tarawa today in a broadcast reporting that Japanese planes had attacked the American air base there yesterday, The broadcast, recorded by U. S. government monitors, represented the first Japanese admission that the tiny island in the Gilberts no longer is in Japanese hands. Previous Tokyo broadcasts had spoken of a Japanese "victory" in fighting al Tarawa. Little Rock, Dec. 14 —(/P) —The Stale Utilities Commission yesterday ordered the Arkansas Western followed by ceiling udjuslmenls in various fields up lo about 74 cenls a barrel. The average price on a nationwide basis now is aboul 1.18 a barrel. Rep. Disney (D-Okla), its sponsor, argued higher petroleum prices are necessary to encourage (Cpptinued QO F§§e Two) to show cause Dec. 21 why it should not refund to 1943 earnings in excess of $10,000. The order said it was unlikely the company would have earnings in excess of that figure. Jap lines on Two Separate Fronts, Pierced —War in Pacific By MORRIE LANDSBERG Associated Press War Editor Allied soldiers pierced Japanese lines on widely-separated fronts today, keeping pace with the ever- mounting air offensive against enemy bases in all sectors of the Pacific. Two Australian • spearheads forced Japanese withdrawals on the Huon peninsula that bulges out on New Guinea's northeastern coast, while in China front-line dispatches declared the invaders were suffering heavy casualties in the shifting battle of the "Rice Bowl." American bombers struck again at the Marshall islands, where the Japanese apparently have rushed reinforcements. The Solomons air force, ending a three-day bad weather lull in operations, made certain that enemy air .fields remained useless. American fliers were active in the China theatre as well. Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden underlined Britain's co-partnership in the war against Japan in his report todny to the House of Commons on the Cairo-Teheran conferences. . "We should be utterly unworthy of our heritage and our tradition," he said, "if we did not 'at the earliest possible moment deploy all our resources for the purpose of establishing the security of the dominions on a firm basis. For that we have to fight Japan to the bitter end, whatever the cost, however long it lakes." For the first time in two weeks, General Douglas MacArthur's com- munique made no mention of an Allied bombing mission against Cape Gloucester on thp southeastern tip of w J1i¥fe'n'e"se-heid" New'"BnV ain. Intensity of the attacks has led to belief that MacArthur was softening up the area for "an early invasion. With imperial headquarters no doubt wondering where the U. S. Pacific fleet would strike next, the Tokyo radio took a dig at its own navy. "It cannot be said," Tokyo observed, "that the Japanese navy has the war situation under complete control." The Japanese radio finally got around to acknowledging American conquest of Tarawa in the Gilbert islands last month. It did so indirectly by broadcasting that Japanese planes had raided the American air base there yesterday. The Allied communique said Australian fighters were making steady progress in the Huon peninsula campaign. One unit is nearing Lakona on the coast 12 miles north of Allied-held Finschhafen. Another Judge J. S. Utley Dies on Monday Little Rock, Dec. 14 —(/P)— Joseph Simeon Utley, 67, judge of the third division of Pulaski circuit court, died at his home here yesterday after a year of failing health. Judge Utleyj, a native of Greenbrier;, was attorney general from 1921 .to 1925. He was a former state senator from Pulaski county and Vas prosecuting attorney for Hot Spring, Saline and Grant counties from-1911 to 1915. -Two daughters, a son, five sisters and two brothers survive. Khox Predicts "Hard Blows 7 Against Japs Washington, Dec. 14 — (IP)— Secretary of the Navy Knox predicted today "hard blows" against the Japanese in the Pacific in the near future. » "We are getting stronger and stronger," he told a news conference. "The preliminaries arc out of the. way. We are getting ready to drive home some hard blows." He gave no indication of where the might of the United States fleet could be -expected to strike. Knox reviewed the war of attrition and added: "Of course, the whole strategy is becoming apparent. It is perfectly obvious now that what seemed to be only nibbling has been carried on with the express purpose of decimating the enemy's strength. He has contributed by sending down small task forces which have been regularly overwhelmed. One of the "striking things" noted by the navy secretary in the Pacific war is that "we seldom encounter transports and cargo carrying ships in outlying ports held by--the enemy." Because ,of rines, surface ships and airplanes, he said, the Japanese have resorted to the use of barges in attempts to move men and materials to their bases. "Hundreds of these barges have been sunk," he said, "and a great many thousands of Japanese soldiers have been lost in their efforts to relieve beleaguered garrisons." : Discussing the air warfare, he said that Ihe actual figure of losses shows thai six or eight enemy planes now are being shot down for every American plane lost. Generally, he said, operations all over the Pacific are "going forward very satisfactorily. We have had a period of preparation and training. Now we have the equip- menl and men to do a complete job." Referring to "fantastic claims" of the Japanese, Knox said, "there is pressing inland north of captured i hasn't be'en any fight of any size Wareo. Fighting in Central China shifted from the Changtch area to the sector between Shishmen and Lin- li, a highway junction 25 miles north of Changteh. Field reports said Chinese troops had routed the Japanese garison at Shishmen and were in the outskirts of Linli. The 14th U. S. Air Force smashed at the railway yards at Hanoi, Indo-China, and on tacked the Japanese Sunday airbasc at- at Hankow, China, for the second successive night. Pearl Harbor, Dec. 14 —(/P) — Latest war reports along a 1,700- mile Pacific chain of outpost Japanese defenses told today of new air blows against the enemy in the Marshalls and Solomons and slow, steady progress o£ Australian soldiers in the jungles of New Guinea's Huon peninsula.

Tax Washington, Dec. 14 —(/P)— The Senate Finance Committee voted today to freeze social security taxes through 1944 at the present rate of 1 percent each on employers and employes. Senator Vandenberg (R-Mich), who twice before has succeeded in blocking an automatic doubling of the rate, led today's movem.ont. Present reserves, he declared, arc far larger than are required by law. In other important actions, the committee: 1. Ratified, by a vote of 11 lo 10, the House decision to require labor unions and other non-profit organizations to file informational financial returns. 2.

Eden Says War Shortened by Allied Decisions By ROGER D. GREENE London, Dec. 14 '—(/P)— Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, reporting to Commons on the" Teheran-Cairo conferences, declared today "the war will be shortened" by decisions reached with Premier Stalin, and again pledged Britain to battle to the final destruction of Japan. He told the cheering House that Prime Minister Churchill has "still more work to do in the sphere where he is now." Churchill had stayed on in Cairo, meeting' last week with leaders of smaller powers. Quicker defeat of the Axis was insured by the "close cooperation of our military plans" at the Teheran meeting of President Roosevelt, Premier Stalin, and Churchill, Eden declared. "Every plan is now agreed upon. The timing is now agreed upon, and in due course the decisions of Teheran will be unrolled on the field of battle." "The military mission agreed in Cairo" at the British-American- Chinese meeting "on future military operations against Japan." Eden termed Japan as much a menace to Britain as to the United Slates and China, and said Britain still was "a principal in the Far Eastern war" because "to destroy Germany and then make a compromise peace with Japan would only sow the seeds of a third world war." Other highlights of the foreign secretary's report: Turkey: The conference with President Ismet Inonu gave "good hopes" for a "sound basis for future cooperation between our- Russia, America and was "encouraging. Further than that I cannot go today." Post-war: Complete cooperation of Britain, Russia, and the United States is-assured. "We three can work logelher." Eden said "the re- currenl threat of war can only be met if Ihere is an international order firmer in strength and unity than any enemy could seek to challenge." Balkans: A British military mission has been with forces of Marshall Josiph Broz (Tito) in Yugoslavia since last spring, and Britain is doing everything to supply them with munitions and other help. Politically, the Allies are working to unite dissident groups in Yugoslavia, and both King Peter and the government of Tito have agreed to let the country choose its own form of government after the war. Over - confidence: Cautioning against "easy optimism," Eden said "the very magnitude of the plans to which we have set our hands will call for immense effort, We have set ourselves a hard task in the determination to achieve victory at the earliest possible moment. Great battles are impending, and for this we shall need all our strength, all our courage, all our unity, in greater measure perhaps than ever before." Italy: The campaign has been slow due to tremendous difficulties of terrain and weather, but "all the more important hill features arc in our hands, and il seems the Germans may be forced to withdraw farther." Eden's speech opened two days of debate on progress of the war and foreign affairs. At Teheran, he said, the foundation was laid among the three major powers for "close interlay in every move" against the Axis, and "we have not had that until now." While he spoke guardedly of the conference with Turkey, he made it clear thai Russia was included in Ihe expressed hopes for four- power cooperation. The Soviet envoy, Andrei Vishinsky, had intended to be present in Cairo, but was visiting in Italy and could not gel lo Egypt until after the meeting with Inonu. As for Japan, he declared thai ever since Pearl Harbor "we-have been committed to the objectives now set out for Ihe first lime internationally in the Cairo agreement." Those objeclives are lo crush Japan and slrip her of all her territorial gains of 50 years. "We should be utterly unworthy of our heritage and our tradition if we did nol at the earliest possible moment deploy all our resources for the purpose of establishing th(? security of the dominions on a firm basis," Eden continued. "For thai we have to fight Japan to the biller end whatever the cost, and lakes." Last German Stronghold in Middle Dnieper Patton's Visit to Cairo Stirs Speculation Cairo, Dec. 14 — (/P)—The arrival in Cairo of Lt. Gen. George's. Patton, Jr., commander of the U.S. Seventh Army, accompanient by variour members of his staff, stirred speculation today about new developments that may be brewing in the Middle East. Patton's unexplained appearance here yesterday came at a time when possible solidification of the Mediterranean and Middle East commands has been a topic of discussion. No attempt was made to keep the general's arrival in Cairo a secret. After debarking from his plane he was observed riding about the city in a staff car bearing his three-star flag. Inasmuch as there is no other Allied officer of equal rank in Cario the flag attracked immediate attention. (Since the 'Greek and Yugoslav governments-in-exile make their headquarters in Cairo, it is conceivable that Palton might have gone there to confer with them on a possible invasion of the Balkans. (Patton it was disclosed yesterday, saw President Roosevelt recently in Sicily, where they might have discussed such an operation.) Congress Not To Interfere Washington, Dec. 14' —(/P)— Because the high cprnrnand; doesn't want to lose thec'services of Lt. Gen. George S. Patton, Jr., congressional leaders indicated today that unless some new development arises there will be no serious objections to retaining him as head of the Seventh Army. Secretary Stimson made the general staff's view clear in a supplement report on the Patton soldier- cuffing incident to the Senate yesterday, in which he said that Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower feels the serious aspects of the case lies "in the danger that the army will lose the services of a battle - tested army commander." Stimson said that Eisenhower had stressed that three instances in which Patton unduly had upbrajd- ed enlisted men "have not affected General Patton's standing as a tactical leader, one who successfully concluded, in record time, a complicated and important military campaign and one whom his of- Severe Cold Wave Due to Hit Tonight Little Rock, Dec. 14 —(/P)—Temperatures may reach 5 degrees above zero in Arkansas tonight, the weather bureau said today.

This assurance was regarded by some members of the Senate military committee, which has been investigating the case, as indicating that Ihe army has more jobs cut out for Patlon, who led American troops on a victorious dash from Gila to Messina in the Sicilian campaign. The general viewpoint of com- millee members seemed to be that if il is Eisenhower's considered judgment lhat Patton has the confidence of his troops and is needed for further operations of the same type, the committee ought not to interfere. Thus the expectation was that the committee would take no further action, although it probably will continue lo hold in abeyance Pres- idcnl Roosevcll's nomination of 14 generals, including Palton, for ad- vanccmenl in permanent army rank. Those nominations are being held up until commiltccmen also find out who is going to succeed Gen. George C. Marshall as chief of staff, if the latter becomes European Allied commander. The whereabouts of Patton's Seventh Army has been a matter of wide conjecture in congress, although some of its units obviously were fused with the Fiflh Army for the Salerno landing and subsequent fighting in Italy. The supposition has been that the Seventh will be used in further invasion attempts in Italy, France or elsewhere.

Southern cities probably will have from 15 to 20 degree readings, the bu- reua said. By The Associated Press A cold wave which drove temperatures far below zero in northern midland states was advancing into Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska today. Forecasters issued warnings for those three states. Temperatures as low as 5 degrees above zero were predicted for the Ohio valley tonight Continued sub-zero readings were forecast for terrilory north of the extreme northern portion of llli, nois. Duluth, Minn., shivered today with the nation's low reading of 21 degrees below zero; at Minneapolis it was 10 below, and at least 10 below over the entire slate of Minnesota. Madison, Wis., had 3 below. Sub-zero weather prevailed over extreme northern Iowa, the Dakotas, Wisconsin and upper Michigan, with freezing temperatures extending southward to the extreme southern border of Tennessee. The present cold wave was expected to be intensified tonight from Chicago southeastward, a condition attributed by the weather bureau to a southward movement of Arctic air. Light snow covered n narrow belt between the northern portions of Illinois and Indiana, southern Iowa and Nebraska on one border, and southern Kansas, central Missouri and the southern portions of Indiana, Illinois and Ohio on the other. Houghton, Mich., had 6 inches of snow, western Kansas, 4 inches; Sault Ste Marie, Mich., 4 inches; Springfield, 111., 3; Kansas City. Mo., 2; and St. Louis, Mo., 1.
