OUT OUR WAY Nazi Command HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS ^ i-v v Washington Wonders If Hitler Is Having Trouble By JACK STINNETT '' WASHINGTON — Most engrossing Subject of discussion in official and Unofficial Washington right now is: What's cooking m the Nazi high command?" 'Discounting most of it as uninform- (6d» wihful thinking, the fact remains ,ihat officials most often right in their past predictions are privately on re- idbrd that the resignations, "illnesses" aad dismissals currently afflicting the ,General Staff are rumblings of a distant earthquake. In short, A. Hitler is having his troubles, but plenty. The list of German generals "busied" Since the "wehrmacht" began its advance toward Berlin in Russia in- cudes men rated by professional soldiers here as tops in the fighting man business. Miltary scholars have nothing but respect for such men as von :Brauchitsch, von Keitael, Gttderian and von Bock. These observers don't discount unconfirmed reports of discord in the naval high command as so much superheated ballon juice, either. When By j. R. Williams Plumbing Repairs Harry W.

Terms it was reported that Vice Ardmiral Karl Doenitz was at odds wiht Grand Admiral Erich Raeder, it confirmed informed gueses that all was not a pleasure cruise in the Nazi navy. Raeder is not held in very high regard by professional sailors. He,s been a yes-man for the boss to the point of political groveling. The steadily declining effectiveness of the submarine campaign, and the losses known to have been inflicted on German U- boat strength by British and U. S. fleets in the Atlantic, together indicated some sort of blowoff was imminent. Apparently Doenitz, realizing which the wind was blowing, got out from under. Another kernel of information held to be highly significant is that dispatch from Besancon that 62 German soldiers were shot for refusal to return to the Russian front. It seems to indicate flagging of the fanatic zeal so evident in the early Nazi campaigns. Capital comment often compares the Russian Army purges and the present German house-cleaning under Gcn- j eralissimo Adolf of the inner voices. Ambassador Joseph Davies book, "Mission to Moscow," makes it clear that the Russian commanders kissed with a bullet got theirs for good reasons such as treason. It seems obvious now that the Red Army generally knew of their conspiracies, and approved their execution. Certainly the magnificent Russian Army morale to date indicates confidence in its present leaders. Furthur, the Russian purges were carried out in peacetime. The Nazi generals were busted in face of an aggressive enemy.

Has Only Year's Supply AP Feature Service Pull yourself together, girls, cause this will make you shake all over. There's a crisis coming in your life a crisis that will make Valley Forge and the Marne and Singapore look like a Sunday school picnic. You've been talking for years about doing something about your figure, remember? Well, now it the time to make good on that promise because in a few months you won't be able to get any outside help. There's a shortage of rubber, you know, and to keep the Army's mechanized units rolling on rubber tires, you'll have to sacrifice the girdles that have been controlling your spare tires, etc. Present stocks of girdles and corsets will be exhausted by the end of this year and from then on, you and your figure will be on your own. What to do about it? You can diet and whip yourself into shape that way. You can combine the rationing of automobile tires and the eventual shortage of limousine transportation with walking—not only for exercise but to get places and home again. Or you can throw caution (and your figure) to the winds and go nonchalantly about your business and socia! life. There was a time back in the turbulent twenties when all girls triec to be flappers and starved themselves to their respective bones so they coulc move around uncorseted and unshak- But their husbands and physician didn't like that—for - different but equally sound reasons, so that ap-1 proach to our problem is not recommended. | A solution developed in England harks back and quite sucessfully, too, to the binders you probably swather your newborn babies in. English women are pulling themselves together with muslin binders they make themselves. The effect, while not as aesthetically or comfortably successful as the store- bought rubber girdles, serves to keep their bodies and souls together. And morale of tiie civilian populace—and what is more important to feminine morale than a good foundation garment—is proving a major element in this war. There's no law or priorities regulation to keep you from scouring the attic for tho corsets of another year "Louisiana Purchase" Opens at Saenger Theater Here Sunder ..W41 x Forming 38 States e next stt- 'ound your shoulder pro- come from n U.

By HELEN HESTERLY Health Unit Clinic Started The Nevada county Health Unit will conduct a special clinic Tuesday, February 3rd, from nine to twelve a. m. at the county health office. These clinics will be held every first and third Tuesday mornings, and will be under the direction of Dr. W. B. Protho, district health director of the State Department. These clinics are for the benefit of those needing immunizations, health examinations for trachoma nad ven- eral disease. Due to the inability to obtain a county health nurse, it has been necessary to do without needed preventative measures. These special clinics will be used as a substitute for the regular nursing clinics and visits. "Food-for-Victory" Campaign Opens Many farm families in Nevada county enlisted in the "Food-for-Victory" Campaign which opened Thursday. The campaign is Arkansas' support Telephone 163 I of the U. S. Department of Agriculture's "Food-for-Freedom" program, calling for increased production of food and feed crops, considered vital to an allied victory in the war. The farm families vrho enlisted will be given red, white and blue stickers If not another generation. Those girls who squeezed themselves breathless in hourbglass corsets, the noc's with hooks and eyes and yards and yards of lacing, only a couple of years ago, may be able to resurrect both the corsets and their shapes with a little modernization. You can do what you like, since it's your figure and your audience that will suffer. But it is surprising the large number of women, moved cithci by the spirit of 1942 or the war, who say they'll gladly do without their girdles—for the duration. "If Uncle Sam needs my girdle," they're saying, "he can have it. What else does he need." How Not to Do It BROOKLYN, N. Y—(/I 1 )—Throwing money away cost a Brooklyn man another §5.

Food Stamp Plan Explained The Food Stamp plan for Nevada county will start operating on February 2, the Chamber of Commerce announced. At a.recent meeting local food merchants and Surplus Marketing Administration officials made final plans to set the Stamp plan in motion.

The German Army rank and file knows by now that capable generals they respected ad followed to geat victories were unjustly ousted because they couldn't carry out impossible tasks Hitler assigned them over their protests. Pvt. Hans and Corp. Willie in tho rear ranks of the "wehrmacht" aren't going to be bucked up by that knowledge, and it'll weigh even more heavily on the gold braid still in danger of Hitler's tantrums. Those tantrums of Hitler's, by the way, may be expected to increase. I talked to a famed psychiatrist (who won't be quoted because a lot of quacks have rushed into print with long-range diagnoses of Hitler) and he said it's quite within possibility that the Nazi Mr. Big is well on his way to losing his mental marbles. He explained it this way: Hitler is obviously unstable men-1 tally. His speeches about his "his- j toric mission" reveal paranoic, rnes- sianic delusions. He's had his way for ten years, and those delusions fed on themselves, increased his belief in his own infallibility. His casual reference to his "inner voice" is the tip-off. Now he isn't having his own way. Some tough Russians are giving the messiah an awful pushing around. But you can bet that Herr Hitler knows it's somebody else's fault, not his own. When a Napoleonic complex is frustrated, it always blames sinister outsire influences. It's called delusions of persecution, and is a logical, common progression of paranoia. It explains in part the shakeup of the German high command for failure to take Moscow, a campaign Hitler reputedly ordered himself. Further reverses will increase Hitler's nedd fo somebody to blame, until his accusations descend to the patently absurd and they give him command oC a paper doll army in a padded puzzle factory. These are some of the speculations current in Washington today. It's safe to say that all is not well within the German high command, that great General Staff that performed so brilliantly in times past.
