BEATTY AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON - America's traditional policy—freedom of the seas- Is the official reason why congress voted to arm merchant ships and send them into war zones. In short, Uncle Sam will travel the ocean highways even If he' hns to pack along a six shooter, and furnish the travelers with armed escorts (naval convoys). But there are other reasons why the government is vitally interested at this moment in the risky business of arming ships and traveling combat zones. These reasons do not appear in the record. But they are more practical than any reasons covered by the flourishing phrase, "Freedom of the Seas." Let's take ship arming first: An armed ship is more of n problem to an attacking submarine than a helpless one. The more timid undersea captains arc tempted to release their torpedoes farther from the target, when they know the target is armed. And there's always the chance that some merchant ship's crew might get a lucky pot shot at a hapless sub before it can submerge. Then there's merchant marine morale. At the moment, nothing's more important to the Allie caudse sailors morale. than Unarmed ship's crows have a helpless, futile, defeatist feeling that often borers on panic when the white paths of torpeodcs are sighted nearby. So much for arming ships. But how about travelling in war zones? Why was the administration so insistent on that point? ^ w^ *' " ;> • : ' i v >^/r^?w^ 'Honky Tonk 1 Opens-at the Saenger Here on Sunday CInrk Gable tries to talk his way into an acquaintcnsln'p with Lana Turner in "Honky .Tonk," which also features l ! rank Morgan and Claire Trevor.

And that is in connection with passing a $40 million appropriation for starting construction on a couple of hydro-electric dams and generating stations in the Tennessee Valley Authority country. As the people in the southeastern states know from personal experience and as the people in the rest of the country have read in their newspapers, there is a really serious power shortage down southeast. It isn't a mythical scare like the Ickes petroleum shortage, but a genuine .black out. It hits defense industries such as nitrate, phosphate, ordnance, aluminum and aircraft plants that use electric power, and for that reason the pressure is on to get something done to relieve the shortage. In mid-August, TVA acquired from private interests the much-fought- over Fontana damsite on the Little Tennessee river. Congress was asked nessec, known as the French Broad river. The Douglas dam was proposed because it could be built almost as a duplicate of the Cherokee dam, already under construction on another branch of the Tennessee, the Holston. Equipment and labor crews could be moved from Cherokee to repeat the work at Douglas. Because of this, it wasestimated the Douglas dam could be built in 15 months. On Oct. 1, the House of Representatives sub-committee on national defense deficiency appropriations got around to holding hearings. Six weeks had been lost already, and if that isn't a bottleneck, what is? The grief is that, it's still bottlenecked, after more than three months, and there is no telling when it will all be cleared. What happened was that the project fell afoul of an old-fashioned congressional log jam. Special interests were involved, and they have been successful in blocking the Fontana and Douglas projects. The special interests happen to be three canning factories which would be put out of business if the Douglas dam were built. The battle seems to be that to preserve "canning as usual," the dam and the electric power it might produce quickly will have to be sacrificed. The French Broad river admittedly is one of the most fertile of the upper Tennessee valley tributaries, On the French Broad low-lands farmers have been raising peas and beans which they sold to the three canning to appropriate $13 million to start factories.

He became the champion of the three canning factories and the farmers. No question of damages was involved. The government stood ready to buy the lands and the canning factories at fair value, and help resettle the fasmers elsewhere as TVA had done before at Norris and other dam- sites. It was just that the canneries and some of the farmers didn't want to move. ' To lick the Douglas project, still stalle in the House Appropriations Committee, McKellar tried, as the second lease-lend appropriation bill was going through the senate, to tack on an amendment authorizing construction of two other dams, one on Ihe Holston river near Bristol, the other on the Watauga river near Elizabethton. The Senate Appropriations Committee kille the amenments, but now McKellar has an iea to build a couple of other ams on the Cumborlan driver, one at Carthage, the other at Salina. If the Douglas am project is approved by the house, Senator McKellar will propose his substitutes. TVA says all these substitutes will take longer to build and won't pro- uce equivalent power. McKellar intimates that David E. Lillienthal, TVA director, is just being stubborn and is holding up defense by refusing to see anything but the Douglas damsite. Anyway, the matter is stalled, and the much-needed increase in TVA hydro-electric power is getting no place while the battle in the bottleneck goes on. Difficult to Get Parts for Farm Machinery Agent Advises Farmers to Take Good Care of Equipment Any difficulty in obtaining parts or materials for repair of farm machinery or equipment should be reported immediately to the County USDA Defense Board, Earl King, chairman, announced this week. Farmers of the county were asked •ecently to repair all their farm machinery as soon as possible in order to aid in the defense program. The coun- ly defense board will attempt to help farmers or dealers obtain the needed articles. Some temporary shortages may develop because of the unusual demand for replacement parts, but manufacturers will be able to obtain sufficient metal to produce needed parts. Every usuable farm machine must be put in shape or kept in top condition if agriculture is to do its part in the 1942 Farm Defense Program. With manufacture of new machinery and equipment In 1942 sharply curtailed because of defense demands for steel, copper and other metals, farmers will have to depend more on existing machinry which may need repairs. Mr. King pointed out that the machinery now on farms was used this year to produce one of the largest crops on recrod and said that the bulk of this machinery can be put in shape to make the 1942 crop. The county chairman warned that farmers ca navoid serious delays fay placing orders for repair parts now. "If farms .put off ordering repair parts, some will have to go without them and valuable crops may be-lost as a result." DeaH General?

The charm expert's idea was that a cheerful, chatty letter from a girl to her young man would cheer him up, and a "wish-you-were here" letter would make him sad and homesick. But any girl, who has a young man to whom her letters matter, is wise enough in the ways of love to know that the most heartening news one lover can write to another is, "Darling, I miss you." So it's a safe bet Uncle Sam's soldiers won't be getting any chatty letters—except from their mothers and maiden aunts.

They are the United States Marine Corps' "The Arctic Marine" and the Army's "The White Falcon." The British garrison publishes "The Daily Post" and the weekly "Midnight Sun." Many officers hope that in time all four will be amalgamated into one newspaper serving all forces in Iceland. News of the world, reports from various units and sports news occupy the most space.

We, theWomen Go Ahead, Girls, Say You Miss Him By RUTH MILLETT Girls are getting a lot of advice today on what to say and what not to say in their letters to soldiers. Some of the words of caution are good and some not so good. But about the worst advice yet Cmes from a 'charm expert' who'tells the girls that such sentences as "I miss you so, dear," "last night the moonlight was so beautiful" and "I'm terribly lonesome now that you've gone to camp" are taboo, and that girls should forget the moon and make their letters chatty instead. Now a chatty letter is one that goes into a lot of detail about a lot of unimportant facts. For instance, a girl bent on writing a chatty letter might mention that- she. had a new permanent wave, that she went to the club dance last week and saw so-and- so and so-and-so, that the weather was good or bad, etc., etc. "CJmtty Letters" Arc For Casual Fiends It might be the kind of letter that would appeal to a friend, purely platonic, or to an interested old uncle, or even to a fond mother or father. But it would almost certainly bring a sigh of boredom to an eager suitor away at camp, hoping to hear, "I'm terribly lonesome now that you've gone to camp" and lots more in the same vein. The charm expert evidently knows more about charm than about young love, if she doesn't know that when 21!
