Old Company Says Big Volume Permit Lower- Cost Service How the War Would Be Fought—German Drive Against Poland Would Set It Off LITTLE ROCK.- M'I— The Arkansas-Louisiana Gas company denied Monday the charge thai it is "resorting to every known device to delay and impede" action on the application of the Louisiana-Nevada Transit company for ;1 permit to distribute natural gas in southwest. Arkansas. The Louisiana - Nevada company made the charge last week in its brief filed with Ihe Stale Utilities Commission. The denial was made Monday in another brief presented lo Die regulatory agency. Itfffiilnlion or C.'ini)|)clili«n? "The question before I his commis_. sion," Ihe Arkansas-Louisiana company said, "is of much greater 'magnitude than simply whether the applicant shall he permitted to serve « limited area in Arkansas. The ultimate question to be considered is whether the commission shall endorse and encourage unlimited and cutthroat competition in the utility business contrary to the intent of Arkansas' acts. "For many years il has been realized by regulatory authorities and the stale legislature that the interests of the public may be belter served by regulated monopolies rather than by competing ulility systems. Volume and Cost "To duplicate utility lines means a dual investment which the consuming public must ultimately pay for. The larger the consumption of any utility system the smaller the cost of service is, and by lowering the unit of cost of service the burner-tip price of gas may bo lowered to the lowest practical level." The Arkansas-Louisiana company said that should the permit be granted the "state of Arkansas would more or less be committed to an open, door policy in (he utility field." "Efficient and integrated utility system's can not be established and maintained for the benefit of the consuming public under such a policy," the brief continued. "Is it better for the state of Arkansas to have a single well-organized and financially sound gas utility system, or have numerous small, shoestring utilities with doubtful permanency':'". Tile commission is expected to begin deliberations on the application late Ibis week.

But Some Believe Italy Would Not Go ToNazis' Aid Italy Is So Vulnerable To Attack She Might Keep Men At Home ENGLISH TO FRANCE Allies Strong, But Chance Of Saving Poland Is Regarded Slim By NKA Service WASHINGTON - An overpowering diive from Germany eastward into Poland will mark the swirl of Hie next war—if threats of war inalcriali/.c— in the opinion of military authorities here. The broad lines of attack and objectives already arc known to military men. because rules of war ore universal. As sized up by the authorities, and assuming that Germany and Italy were line.) up ugainst England, France, and Poland, here's how the war, in their opinion, would develop: The Germans would drive on land to cul off the Polish Corridor and the Vistula valley industrial areas. They would concentrate on this at first, using enough troops on the French border to hold the. French at bay. The German drive would extend from along the corridor south to an offensive launched out of Slovakia. Tho southern offensive would drive two ways, north toward Warsaw anil east toward the Russian Ukraine—i the latter operating designed to close Poland's back clcor entrance for supplies. The Italians would be busy with their own troubles, but might send troops north through Germany to aid the Germans in the Polish campaign. Italy, however, is believed by military men to be so vulnerable to at- lack that it is the almost unani- mouse opinion of military men here that Mussolini would not even go la war on Germany's side. French Would Hit At Po Valley Assuming the axis held, however, Italy on land would be put to defend herself from French attack launched at the Po The French would bo in a position to attack from the outer edge of <i fan converging near Turin. Thus, in defense, the Italians would have to fan out their troops at tho four entering passes, while tho attack forces would be converging together toward the final assult. Franco, on land, aside from the Italian offensive, would throw all possible weight against the Germans on (hi French-German border, defended on their own sid by the "impregnable" Maginot lino and by tho Germans hy the reputedly qually strong Siegfried line of underground forts. Franc would throw all the force possible on this front, to ease the strain on Poland on the other side. England would send her own men to fight with Ihe French. The experts believe Poland might fall ID the Germans within a matter of weeks, leaving theater of war lo shift to iho western front altogether. Franc and England would use every resource lo prevent. Polish collapse, and keep the way open for a "pinc- or" atlaek on Ihe Germans from Poland and France. Britain Would Try Baltic Blockade The fight lo keep Poland going would turn on naval operations. Britain would seek to block the Gei- nian floel in the Baltic sea—and is reported already to have sent ships to barricade Straits of Skagcrrak. They undoubtedly would sacrifice some ship to buttle up the German,s in iho meantime trying lo cut off the German submarine fleet by air attacks on the Kiel and Kaiser' Wilhclm canals Some German subs are rr- purliil already i.c have g'-'ue south to join iho Italians. Then, to keep open the Polish lino of supplies—some British troops might be sent to help Poland—Britain and France would engage the Italian navy in Ihe Mediterranean. The British would operate in Ihe eastern Medi- teranean to prolect the Sue/, canal and protect Iroop movements from Australia and India, and to cul off Italian Iroup movements from the colonies. In the western Mcditcnunean, the British would control ihu outlet at Gibraltar and the French navy would drive on Pantellejia. Italian 'base, i') conjunction with the British.

The embargo on arms, he declared in an address to the national convention of Veterans of Foreign Wars, is "very nearly equivalent to presenting Germany with an Atlantic fleet," and is a "direct more encouraging war."
