HOPE STAR, NOPE, ARKANSAS of ID Activity Washington Heatedly Airs Pros, Cons About LaGuardia |c% .> 'ijf JACK STINNETT S7 ' WASHINGTON—Pros and cons con;K Cerning the success of the Civilian De- Ll&nse Program under Director La- fKGttiardia have kept the air circulating f" heatedly in Washington for weeks. "»'?' The woods arc full of opinions on I. whether its a success. The capital, '- however, often mistakes a political v sideshow for the main attraction. The "",. Stumors of LaGuardia's alleged argu- iJ_ ments with the President's wife, con- if gressional potshots at the Little Flower and the attendant cracks and counter. cracks have kept Washington thrilled. ^ That's unimportant. Washington is I only one town. This civilian defense V program, in this time of war for ex- J istence, admittedly should be fully ors ganized and in full blast all over the > country. - Is it? , •• There's one certain way to find out. Check the home town newspapers of ' America. They mirror completely the activities of the people in each town, s If civilian defense in Podunk is en,, grossing the best efforts of the peo- - pie, you can bet your shirt that the £ Podunk Clarion is full of the doings ,'of its people in behalf of civilian de„ fense. i< , To get the real lowdown on this ' civilian defense business, its success or , v failure, I grabbed an armful of papers Tired Kidneys Often Bring Sleepless Nights Doctors say your kidneys contain 15 miles many people have to get up nights. Frequent 1 or scanty passages with smarting and burning •ometimes shows there is something wrong with your kidneys or bladder. Don't neglect this condition and lose valuable, restful sleep. When disorder of kidney function permits poisonous matter to remain in your blood, it m»y also cause nagging backache, rheumatic. pains, leg pains, loss of pep and energy, •welling, pumness under the eyes, headaches And dizziness. Don't wait! Ask your druggist for Doan'a Pflls, used successfully by millions for over 40 yean. They give happy relief and will help the 15 miles of kidney tubes flush out poisonous waste from your blood. Get Doan'a Fills. Before you put a license plate on your new car put a liability policy in your_vault?' Roy Anderson INSURANCE Phone 810 Hope thai come into my office from all over the country. The verdict of America's representative newspapers seems to indicate the success of the civilian defense program is spotty. It's a question of geography in some places, a question of failure to "sell" the program to the people in others. Out on the Pacific Coast, xvhere ships have been sunk in sight of shore and hostile planes have flown over U. S. soil, there's no fooling about civilian defense. It's hot stuff in daily newspapers there. Editors know what their communities want, and those communities which feel the breath of war on their necks out there want columns of dope on how to protect their homes in wartime. The papers are full of it. It's clicking. In Portland, Ore., they're fully staffed and really working. The people oversubscribed an $18,000 voluntary contribution budget to implement the program. Seattle papers are full of neighborhood defense meeting announcements. Switch across the country, and you find industrial Baltimore, a prime target and loaded to the city limits with defense contracts, brushing off civilian defense. Cartoonists suggest the governor and the mayor of Baltimore —his opponent in the last election- are making it a political tug-of-war. Siren tests were a flop. They couldn't recruit within thousands of their required volunteer staff. The Midwest is pretty generally lukewarm. Papers in Minnesota and Indiana reported test blackouts were "planned,"' organizations meetings were "scheduled." This is a month after Pearl Harbor, remember. Editorials in the Midwest were chiefly concerned with what the war would cost the people in comforts, what the budget meant in higher taxes. A Michigan paper carried its only civilian defense item on the society page. You get the idea some club- women think it's an idea that will bear looking into. Galveston, on the Gulf Coast, really got into harness. Up in Alaska, the papers show the people are talking it seriously. There are isolated instances even in the most complacent areas where civic authorities have kicked the program into high gear, but they're all too few. There's evidence the OCD general staff hahs't sold the people in the behind-schedule areas. The Red Cross was staging its war drive at the same time I checked the papers. Even in localities where civilian defense was completely absent from loial news, the Red Cross was getting space because its people were doing a newsworthy job. That indicates people in areas remote from war are willing to hit the ball for the war effort, and that something has failed or else they'd be doing the same job for civilian defense. It seems there's nothing like the proximity of a bombing to stir activity. [ "Mosquito", Navy's Hero, Bites Japs Thursday, January 22, 1942 . , NEA Service Tclephoto Lt.

MBS. AS E.LEC C+/&PLAIM IN 1941 Library Flower Gets Attention Rare Plant Now on Display at Hempstead Library A beautiful bronze color plant called Galax has attracted more attention than any other decoration ever placed in the Hope-Hempstead County Library. This lovely vace of Galax was given to the library by Mrs, S. G. Norton. It was sent to Mrs. Norton from North Carolina by a relative. The galax is a genius of plants, of the family Galacacae, occuring from Virginia to Georgia, chiefly in the mountains. The plant is a perennial, with basal cluster of leaves and slender simple flowering stems terminating in slender spikes of small greenish flowers. The leaves are rounded heart-shaped, somewhat leathery and shining. In autumn they assume a beautiful bronze color and then, as well as at other times, they are gathered in large quantities to be used for decorative purposes, especially for wreaths and for Christmas greens.

MEXICO CITY— (ff)— A Mexican banker says the pocket submarines the Japanese used in the attack on Pearl Harbor papear similar to one he invented and turned over to the foreign ministr yin 1935. Gonzalo Sanano Anita, of the Agricultural Credit Bank, said the published descriptions and pictures appear to describe the same machine he invented. He said if they were built from his plans, the plans must have been taken from the Foreign Relations files because he did not discuss thorn with any foreign government.

Rotary Club The Rotary club has a unique idea for buying defense bonds. Every Tuesday at its meeting slips of paper with numbers one to thirty-three on them are drawn from a hat by members. The numbers on the paper drawn, is paid in cash. The member not present has to take the highest number of 33 and therefore has to pay 33 cents. The money derived from this drawing goes on a defense bond. After the war the money will be used as a school fund. The club met Tuesday at the Broadway Hotel. Mr. S'am Logan was in charge of the program. He gave a very interesting talk on "Conditions of time Now and During The Last Wold War." He discussed fully the prices of different commodities.
