PA'GE FOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tuesday, September 5, 19391 c> Bombers'iEffectiveness Lessened • by Improved Anti-Aircraft Guns By PAUL MANNING NBA Serv-lw Staff Writer Thousands of airplanes dropping their deadly big explosive bombs as they suddenly roar in a flu-out , attack, over Paris. London and Her- | lirt is one thought which has dis- \ turbcd Europe's peace of mind dur- j ing the past weeks of the war crisis. | But because anti-aircraft guns have improved tremendously since the World War this threat may not be so deadty as some military theorists claim. For although airplanes can now fly three times as fast, ten times as far and twice as high with twice the load as they could during the World War, anti-aircraft fire is today so effective that any plane flying below 12,000 feet in good weather over a fortified city, industrial center or munition dump will be dosvned in less than fifteen London is ringed with these mobile three-inch anti-craft guns which can travel 45 miles an hour over good roads and be set in position complete with sound equipment and directing units in twelve to fifteen minutes. This gun, just behind the Seig- Xried Line on the Western Front, is one unit of Germany's first line o£ defense against enemy bombers. Less effective than U. S. anti- aircfart guns to a similiar type, it is nevertheless able to down any airplane flying below 12,000 feet in fair weather. shots. No Air Defense Is Int'allable .That Germany is counting on the anti-aircraft gun in any coming war for protection, while the bluk of her airplanes are flying in counter-attack, is to be judged by the statement of her miitary defense experts that "the more than 400 anti-aircraft batteries guarding Germany will annihilate enemy airplanes before they retch Berlin." No defense however can be established that will enable a country to say flatly that enemy airplanes cannot pas, U. S. miitary experts believe. Judgeing by the performance of German anti-aircraft guns in the recent Spanish war, German, French and English anti-aircraft batteries will be sufficiently accurate to drop a big percentage of enemy bombers before CHILLS AND FEVER Here's Relief From Malarial Don't let Malaria torture you!

Spain A Proving Ground for Guns For the AA guns which Germany sent for trail by German crews—who guarded them against inspection by anyone, including Franco's officers— repeatedly dropped Russian bombers winging along at 200 m. p. h. at 12,000 feet. The most effective German anti-aircraft guns are a double-barreled gun and a light-machine gun which fires below the high range of their more powerful 3-inch weapon. Their 3- inch gun is good but is outclassed by the 3-inch guns of the United States which can fire eighty to one-hundred aimed rounds a minute to 25,000 feet. The most sensational anti-aircraft gun inEurope today is reported to be owned by Sweden. An 88 mm, mobile piece turned out in moderate quantities by the Swedish Bofors plant, it performed beautifully on trail for the Germans in Spain.

So all the more credit to a recent potentate from the exotic East for having halted traffic on the streets, for having shaken the guests at night clubs out of summertime lethargy-, and for having provided the columnistic fiends with copy. He is the Sheik Mohamedj Bin Isa Al Khalif of Bahrein who dropped in here to look around v at our quaint Western ways and to see what this nocturnal whirligig is all about. The Sheik does not compromise sartorially with the country in which he is an honored transient. He gets around, swathed in what an uncouth New Yorker would regard as bed sheeting, which contrasts starkly against his handsome and swarthy skin. He wears bejewelled moccasins and on his person are bright headlamps and tail lights of sparkling gems, not to speak of a sharply honed dagger. No wonder the pedestrains pause in their tracks to have a look at him. Falls for Night Club Beauty His excursions into the night life of of the metropolis have been unweary- ing. Having heard from colleagues that the cabarets contain femininty that vies with the most fastidious potentate's harem, he checked up on such a wild rumor and found it to be perfectly true. The Sheik has expressed himself enthusiastically on the beauty of the American girl. What's more, he has lavished upon at least two of them those rubies which visiting Marajahs' customarily be- stowupon beautiful women. The recipient of such a gift was Mary Dowel, otherwise known as "Stutterin 1 Sam," and, by and large, the the most beautiful and tallest showgirl in town. "Stutterin' Sam," to show her gratitude, sent around to the Sheik's apartment a gift that she had previously saved up for another boy friend. It was one of those pirtable radios that require no hookups or aerials. The Sheik never had seen one and so delighted he still bears it along where- evre he goes and tunes in. Cheap, he thinks, for a paltry ruby! Washington Daybook By PRESTON GROVEK BY PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON — The government has spent millions in designing battleships, roads, low-cost houses, kitchen aprons, drugstor glassed-in gardens and suspension bridges, but not one dime has it laid out in fashioning a comfortable suit of clothes for n man. For seven cents, or maybe it is 13, you can get a pamphlet on window gardening. Experts will help you fight the Japanses beetle. Consular agents will stwcal tdrough a steaming summer in Java enduring malaria mid chigger bites to help you sell an iceless refrigerator or n new brand of soda-water. But no government finged will be raised to work out a new scheme for clothes that, at the end of a hot day, won't hang on you like a potato sack.
