S. Seek Immediate Service By MILTON URONNfift NEA Service Staff Coire(!iM>h<»*nt Washington-Twenty thousand PIN Ipinos, not citizens, but residing in the United Stales, would like to fight for Undo Sam, either in their own native islands or anywhere else—if the American government would onlv let them. Their idea is to form one or two divisions, officered in part by Americans and in part by Filipinos, snd to gfl active service after six tnonthS of Intensive training. And they Wont particularly to fight JapS, and not be turned into labor battallions or anything of that sort. Filipinos in the United States are In on anomalous position, unless they were born here. In that case, they nre American citizens. Allen Filipinos Arc "American Nationals" But Filipinos born in the Philippines, which are still n dependency of the United States, ore not American citizens, but nre given the puzzling title of "American nationals." Whatever that may mean, the American census and the Department of Justice consider (hem as aliens. Under the Aliens Registration Act they have to register, just as does a German, Italian or Jop. The Department of Justice says 83,674 Filipinos were registered in the continental United States nnd possessions like Hownii, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Alaska. The Census Bureau has not yet revealed Its figures. But it is estimated some 50,000 Fili" pinos live in Hawaii ond over 32000 in the United States. California, Oregon and Washington have the biggest Filipino population. Those who are not students or business representatives, are mainly agricultural workers. In Washington they are mainly taxi drivers ond house servants. Many used to be in the United States navy, serving in the officers' mess. Filipinos in this country have never shown any great longing to go back home to live, olthough now they are ready to go back there to fight. As an aftermath of the depression, mony Filipinos in America were very poor. In July, 1935, a House act provided means for Filipinos to return to the Philippines at the Americon government's expense. This provision ended December 31, 1940 . The Authors of the bill estimated that between 20,000 and 30,000 would apply for repatriation. Actually only 2190 accepted free transportation to Manila. Filipinos Wnnt to Fight Right after the treacherous attacks by the Japs on American forces in Hawaii, followed by invasion of the Philippines, J. M. EHzalde, Resident Commissioner of the Philippines to the United States, received letters from Filipinos all over the United States expressing a desire to join up with the American forces. So widespread and insistent was this movement that Elizalde took it up with the War Department. A few weeks ago Secretary of War Stimson wrote back: "Many Filipinos who are citizens of the United States, are now serving in our army. Unfortunately, under our present law, a person who is not a citizen of the United States, may not be commissioned or enlisted in the urmy. Consequently, a change in the law will be required if Filipinos, who are not citizens, are to be permitted service in the armed services of the United States. The War Department has this matter under study and it is hoped that a solution will be found in the near future." Incidentally, Slizalde's office is issuing certificates of Filipino nationality for protection of his fellow countrymen, who might be mistaken for Japs. Many of them also wear a red button with o white band across it on which is printed in black the word "Filipino." The stout fighting the Filipinos are doing in their homeland is largely due to the fact that the first act passed by the Filipino National Assembly in 1935 was a plan for national defense. It required compulsory service from all men between the ages of 20 and 50. Every year those reaching the age of 20 must register. The plan was for six months training for between 20,000 and 40,000 each half year. The first registration was in April, 1926, ond barracks by January, 1937, and the second group in July, 1937. This was repeated yearly. Upon completion of training, the men were taKen into the reserves. Had pence prevailed, it was forseen that by 19G6, there would hav been 1,000,000 trained fighting men. How many Filipino trained soldiers ore fighting alongside American troops in the Philippines today is not revealed, but it is probably considerably more than 100,000.

Harrison in Hollywood •» r-AUU HARRISON, NBA Service Correspondent La Powell Scores With Drum and Stick HOLLYWOOD-When the monkey^ men from Japan began to move on the Philippines, a Hollywood producer and his staff retired in confusion and embarrassment to their conference rooms tnd began to reform their lines. The lines were those incautiously written for n musical called "I'll Take Manila." Worst of it was that most of the picture already had been filmed. There were Navy and Philippine backgrounds; there were puns by Red Skelton and Bert Lahr involving the locale and the islanders; and there was a tremendous whoop-to-do finale in which Eleanor Powell sang the title song and then, in her dance, tapped out n code warning to sailors in the audience that axis agents were- pbout to blow up a battleship in the' harbor. Bad As That? For awhile, the situation looked as hopeless as the time just before Germany's romp through the Low Countries when 20th-Fox confidently announced productln f a uper-epic called "The Maginot Line." Tiling looked brighter when the authors changed the title song to "111 Take TaluIIah." and now, they say, the picture is falling into a new pattern as smooth as one of Miss Powell's dances. Locale of the yarn has been switched to a tourist cruise star's character name has been chang- |in unidentified tropical waters. The 'fid to Talullah, and of course this will ^require a lot of retakes. ^•(FheyVe now filming the "I'll Take Talullah" number without any code stuff, but fcan promise that whatever has been lost in dramatic value is Well repaid by Miss Powell's amazing dance routine. Tommy Dorsey's orchestra is playing. Drummer Buddy Rich stands at the edge of the platform clattering his Slicks and tossing them to Miss Powell, who's dancing on a table top. She leaps down, catching a drum in midair and whirls it around in her dance so that Rich can hit a few licks as it goes by. He then bounces a stick against the floor. She makes the catch hits the drum with the stick and bounces it back to him. As the chorus finishes, both go to their knees with the drum between them. She catches two whirling slicks tossed from the Sidelines, joins Rich in n clatter of hot licks, and at the last instant they shake hands. Dry Diver That isn't all. The music resume then, and Miss Powell really goes to town on a classicized solo jitterbug routine. I haven't memtioned the swimming pool on the set, but, the camera now draws back and reveals that there is one between the audience and the dance floor. Miss Powell dances around to the left end of it and then races up the springboard and dives. Tin's is n climatic bit of exuberance, because she's fully dressed. But she doesn't get wet! A husky adagio dancer, standing pretty high in what ought to be deep water, catches her and tosses her on to a escond adagio gent on a raft. Without any doubt this is the dog- gonedest dance routine I've ever witnessed, and if it doesn't have the jilter-jivers jumping oh their seats and whooping In the aisles it will be only because nobody will believe the stunts actualy were performed. They were, though, and it was all of one morning and until 3 p. m. before the drum and stick business was filmed. Hempstead Students Make Honor Roll Two out of the 19 from Hempstead county made the semester honor roll at A. and M. college, Magnolia. Ark. Ernestine Collins, Hope freshman, made a 5.13 average. Mary Maxie Holt, Nashville sophomore, made a 5.43 average. Collins is taking a teacher training course and Holt is enrolled in the Home EC department. Holt made a six point average last year at semester. The total honor roll was 57, which was one less than the nine weeks honor roll. SPG Engineers to Work on Saturdays In keeping with the president's all- our war effort, personnel of the Area Engineers began, January 17, 1942, working all day Saturdays.

The gale had gone dead, I began to shiver, with a sound in my ears that I hadn't heard since the old days in the west. There's something about the hoofbeats o£ a lone horse, going full gallop across country in the dead of night. After a while I dozed off, and this time I came up slower out of sleep. A line of motor cars was going past. Their lights made a pattern on the lawn as they eased around the curve. Then there was one single, high, crazy voice, shrieking short and quick, as un- human as a mechanical whistle, yet enough to turn you sick with the terror and despair in it. My door opened. Juddy came in. "They've got him." She was quicker than I. I was still fixing my sweater when she came back. "Somebody's on the veranda," she said. She put her head out the window and called. Doc's voice answered ner. "It's Loren Oliver. Let me in." I ran down, with Juddy close after me. The two Gullah girls were huddled under the stairs, crying. Doc came in and barred the door after him. "What are you going to do?" .fuddy asked him, quick and fierce. "I tried to telephone the troopers," he said. "The wires are down." She tried to push past him. "Let me out," she said. "I'm going to the tree." "Don't be a fool, Juddy," I said. I doubt if she even heard me. "Are you going to let me pass?" she said to Doc. "No," he said. "It's no place for e woman." She stamped on the floor like a furious child. "This is my place," she said, her voice high and shaky. "If you're afraid to go out there, don't try to stop me." "Sorry," Doc said. "But you're not going into that mob." She slipped past him to the corner and grabbed up her. 12-gauge. "You're not going to prevent me," she said. His face was white and tired, almost as tired as his voice. "Oh, be sensible!" he said, which was good advice, but not the way he said it, * * # CHE was trying to raise the gun. For a minute I-was sick and dizzy. You can't tell what hysteria will drive a woman to do. Doc said in the tone of a casual suggestion: "I'd put that gun down, if I were you." Juddy went over and sat on the stairs and buried her face in her arms. A red glow showed through the window and spread and lighted up the sky. "You might as well be going," I told Doc. "I'll wait outside," he said. The crowd melted away. I got Juddy to bed. She wouldn't speak to me. Her hands and feet were icy and every now and then she'd stiffen all over. I got her fixed up with a hot water bag and went outside. "I want a doctor, Doc," I said, "This thing has got her." "There's old Starrow at Brandon," he said. "We can stop a car." We went out and signaled one. A man lurched forward from the rear seat. It was Maurie Sears. He was drunk. Had to get that way, I reckon, to nerve himself up to that business. He turned his face away. I'm not sure he knew me. The lad at the wheel was sober. He said he'd be glad to fetch the doctor. The old boy was there in half an hour. He went at Juddy like he knew his business, shot her full of dope and told me to keep her out of commission for a few days. Old Swoby did what no darky would have dared to do; cut the body down and buried it in a corner of the bluff above Tambay Stream. There was some beefing and threatening when the white trash of the country and the young toughs of the towns found out about it. They're always the lot that raises the trouble. Who was this Old Swoby? You never could tell about these greaseballs, He'd better watch his step. It worried Doc. He fixed up a place for the little man to sleep, inside the stockade. The trouble blew over. But Doc oiled up tJS gangster's rod. * » • TUDDY mooned around like halt J her joy in Tambay was gone. Sometimes I'd catch her staring down the road toward Tambay Tree, and see the shudders take hold of her. Nothing would make her go that way. After all these weeks when I'd watched her adjust herself, getting young and warm and soft and gay like she was meant to be—well, it made me sick to see her slipping back. Then all of a sudden she shook herself one day and got back into harness. It was this way. I'm pretty husky, but the rate that business was coming in, I was hardly getting a chance to eat or sleep. Then the good old reliable digestion slipped a cog, and I came down to breakfast green around the gills. Juddy came out of the fog and gave me the careful eye. "Mom, you look tired." "Well, I am tired." "What's the matter?" "Nothing, nothing at all. Just that I've been doing double work except Sundays when I make up for it by doing triple. Don't give it a thought." She mulled over that a while. Then she said, "My theory is that I've been acting like a heel." "Argue it yourself," I said. "I'm too tuckered out." From that minute my partner took hold like a bull-pup. She threw in Ollie and Nollie and Uncle Andy, and trained them into an efficient working team. In a week we were handling our. .regular business, easy, and readying up for the commencement crowds that would be coming on. Where Juddy got her commercial savvy from, I never could tell you. Must have been in her blood. She cooked up a snappy little circular and spread it over a picked list for a hundred miles around. She subscribed to a lot of newspapers and whenever she read of an excursion coming our way, whether it was a visiting basketball team or an Elks outing at the islands, she sat down to the camp typewriter and two-fingered out a boost for the Feederia. Rotaries and Chambers of Commerce she contacted personally. To meet the Commencement rush, she bought the tent of a medicine show that blew up in Brandon and rented cots from the armory. Our accounts, when I could find time to figure them, made sweet reading. I said to her, "Ideas! You've got 'em, all right, pal. More of 'em pan ou| than I'd have thought, too." (To Be Continued) Congress Full of Argument They Will Squabble on Anything Except the Wai- fey .TACK SftNT-ttOtf WASHtNGTON-There has been a great deal of talk about the death of partism politics. I will have to plead guilty to having, on occasion, put in my two cents worth on that score- but not any longer. 1 have been a-visiting up on the Hill and I'm here to report thnt the old political hatchet is only buried on one subject—the winning of the war. Since December 7, I haVn't been able to find a congressman (or woman) Who doesn't want to win the war. But after that, agreement ends—and the basis of partisn politics is disagree- mnnt. Tn the first place, this is election year, and the seats of 34 Senators nad all the members of the House of course, are at stake. That means campaigns—and campaigns mean "issues." When one begins to look for these, he finds there are plenty of them. Some of these issues, a lot of them, are coming up in Congress before election time comes around. But there will be others and many of those in the immediate offing will be continuing. For example, there is the prosecution of the war itself. No one questions the solidarity of England, but I when things go wrong with British progress in the war, there are quite a few M. P.'s who are happy to stake their political necks on questioning Prime Minister Churchill. That's probably only a sample of what can happen here. The "outs" aren't going to forget how many political noggins fell AFTER England entered the War. As Republican National chairman, Rep. Joseph W. Martin put it: "This is no time for abuse or criticism. It's a time for pointing out. We, like every one else, are 100 per cent for winning this war but, like they do in England, we will reserve the right to comment when it can honestly be done. The party of the oppisition is of greatest importance." "As for specific issues which are likely to develop into lusty political battles: (1) Price control legislation, particularly as regards farm prices, wages, and administration of the act. The big guns already are firing on this one and it's pretty much a battle royal. The farm bloc, the laborities, the anti-Leon Henderson-ites, tine anti-labor gro upt.he anti-inflation- ists, and the middle-of-the-roaders make it a glourious melee. (2) The drastic reduction in non- defense spending with many Congressmen battling to save their favorite agencies. (3) Legislation banning strikes in war industries and probably along I with it a tighter control of management profits and operations. This may| pop to the front again any minute- any minute that labor or 'management I shows signs of getting out of line. j (4) Congressional committee investigations to unearth any possibly graft or favoritism in government contracts and to determine where the arms program is falling down, if it is . (5) The gigantic tax program, pro- babaly no one questions the vast amount of money we have to raise, but don't think for a minute there isn't going to be hot argument about the methods of raising it. • (6) The fight to save small industries from complete annihlation and legislation to remedy or relieve labor and industrial dislocations. I could mention a lot of minor issues that may loom large before the year, is out, such as the complaints against the progress of civilian defense; and daylight saving, which was one of the big political squabbles of World War 1 and is certain to bring some political doars from the farm belt. But that should be enough to convince that the second session of the 77th congress isn't going to be intirely a chorus of yesses. Well-Known Negro Teacher Succumbs Hazel G.
