Hope, Arkansas Phone 245 Convoy Protects Ships From Subs But Air Bombers Are Effective New Threat Against Shipping By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON - Chamberlain's statement that not a single ship had been lost from convoy during the wur hii.sizwl how ;i simple expedient has proved Die best protection against Ihe submarine. The convoy .system works because (if two major factors. Submarines cnnnot tmvel fust or fur under water. On top of the water they are as vulnerable as three men in a tub. II a submarine is compelled to stay ur.der water to escape observnton Irom the destroyers protecting the convoy, it can not overtake the convoy. A .submarine has only one chance against a convoy. If, by a break, the convoy sail up to a hidden submarine, the sub may sink one or more .ships. Convoy groups of merchant vessels- are assembled according to a prearranged plan. The plan may have been handed tn each ship before it sails from its home port, so that each buiil knuw.s where and when, on its return voyage, it will be huddled together with -other merchant ships nnd moved home under protection of destroyers. The rende/.rous may be out in mid- Ttlantic. Often it is in a protected port, such as Gilbraltar. From previous instructions each ship will know it place in the formation. It will have also a chart exactly mapping its course, CVCMI telling when to v.ig, when to xag. Captains Lose Authority Tlic moment when his ship joins the convoy, each captain loses his independence of action. The destroyer commanders lake over. For a convoy of a do/en ships there may be onlf two destroyers. For a convoy of 60 or more ships, eight or more destroyers may be assigned. Their general direction is toward an English port. They don't sail straight lor home. They may sail the first 15 miles at an angle to the south, then turn back. They may be unlucky and run right into a submarine. But the idea of the zig-zag course is to prevent a submarine from knowing in advance where to lie in wail. If the submarine doesn't happen to he in the right place it will have a haul time getting there. If it sails on the surface the desroyers will sight it while il s miles away—if the wea- Ihei- is clear—und a sighted submarine if destroyers are around. Yet if it is forced to sail under water to intercept the convoy, the submarine can travel only a short distance at its top speed of 12 to H knots, before its batteries give out. Air Rai<( Danger Tho destroyers, meantime race on all sides of the convoy, dodging into the midst now and then to jack up a laggard freighter, to make it keep its place or its speed. The freighters do not zig-zag individually within the convoy. They would wreck each other. The whole convoy turns and twists as a unit, like ducks on the wing. A convoy- group may be sprawled out over an area of several square miles, with . r >00 to 1,000 yards between vessels, for safety. While seemingly safe from submarines, convoys are not yet safe from air raids.A heavily-laden freighter si meat for even a small air bomb. Its thin walls tear like paper. A low-flying convoy group frightfully and be away Ircim behind the tangle of sluggish freighters. Machine Gun Harvest in Polish Fields Happy Chandler's Memory Is Best U. S, Senate Gets a New Exponent of "Smiling Statesmanship" WASHINGTON - There is much good-natured chatter about the extent of Senator "Happy" Chandler's statesmanship but he can be cited as H man who made the most of a college education. He is a one-man charm school. We have never run into more than a half- dozen persons who know him who did not close their remarks something to this effect: "In spite of all that, I like him personally." Me belongs to the flashing-grin school of politicians. The group was easily headed by Paul V. McNutt until Chandler hove into town. Our information 1 is that Chandler spent something close to seven years in college In Kentucky. In that time le may have skipped over calculus and freshman economics, but he did not miss a bet when it came to making 'riends. 15 Years Later Ho tdok ( the usual .four years at Transylvania, a historic seat of learn- ng turned sectarian some years ago, then soaked up law at Kentucky university..Never a freshman class came n nor a senior class went out during the time he was there without Chandler knowing — we have this from good sources—practically every member.

Later the fellow became a reporter, grew a moustache* acquired poise and polish from foreign travels, and came back to encounter 15 years later. He not only called the fellow's name but teased him about some forgotten college Irivolity. Moreover, Mrs. Chandler, who does well enough at the business, had learned something about thd reporter's old college- sweetie, who didn't become his \vife. He Like U The thing sort of stalls you. Most but once away from the mob they don't hide their distaste of such a way of making a living.

Unless Postmaster Ben Beshoar does some fast thinking he says it probable is going to cost him the friendship of all his lady friends—save possibly one—to deliver a single letler. The letter, postmarked from an Ok- laho'ma city, was addressed "To the Prc-Uiest Gal in Trinidad, Colo." "Far be it from me to make that choice," says Beshoar, who is an M. D..

It wasn't conceit but a world of confidence. She attached a blue velvet bow to her hair nnd stepped back to survey the result. "Looks pretty slick to me." Joan turned quickly at the sound of n voice in the doorway. "Oh . . . Carol . . . c'mon in." Carol sat down and regarded Joan meditatively. "Y'know," she began, regarding Jonn's sleek curves and long, dark bob, "I've got a pretty good hunch that you'll have Mister Keith Rhodes all tied up and wrapped for delivery before many moons have come and gone." Joan smiled. "Thanks, but I don't ever want to get my man in that condition. They don't amount to much." "I can appreciate your philosophy, but wouldn't it give you u lot of personal satisfaction to bag Keith that way?" Joan looked at her levelly. "I suppose it should, but I just don't think like that. Surprised?" Carol's smile was warm. "No— and it's too bad a lot more of us aren't as sincere as you are. But this is an opportunity, kiddo, so make the most of it.

He pulled her away for more introductions. "Nix—she's poison- strictly," he muttered. Suddenly a short, wiry redhead burst from the music room. "Where is she? Where is she?" the redhead yelled. Then he saw Joan and KOith and swooped down on them, 'Ummmm," he murmur c'd. "Rhodes, you wretch, you're a master of understatement. The lady,isn't beautiful—she's ravishing, divine, she's—" He ceased and took Joan's unprotesting hand while Keith grinned. "Neighbor, do you recogniae this native twang :i mine?" Joan turned •. startled look on Keith. "Wh-what— ?" "The .specimen in front of you," Keith began by way of explanation, "is Tommy Peters, \arsity cheer leader and noisiest man in seven counties." "Including Guachita," the redhead added. "And don't tell me you've -never heard of Ouachita county." "Why—no, where is it?" "Where is it!" he shrieked. "And they told me you were from Arkansas! What part of Arkansas you from, anyway?" A sudden warning buzzed inside her.

Out of the East last Saturday came vaunted Villanova, undefeated in 22 games and even shots against an allegedly crippled Aggie eleven. Tyler shook and the petals dropped from its rose festival while the Cadets punched Villanova silly, 33-7. Injured first stringer built up a tremendous 33-0 half time lead then gave it to the second and third string. Big John Kimbrough, Sophmore Derace Moser, Biall Consater, pass pitching Mario% Pugh an the great line headed by Guard Marshall Rob nett, made Villanova look like beginners. Reserves deep into the third string played Villanova yard for yard Back home in Fort Worth the Christians may be different. They outclassed Temple's Owls for nearly three and then folded again—as they did in the UCLA and Arkansas games, failing to score from within the five- ynrd line. They lost 11-13, but TCU still is dangerous and may give the Farmers their toughest fight to date. Pretty soon TCU will start scoring instead of folding. The Aggies know their like books.

No one was greatly surprised when Baylor's underdog Bruins rose up and smacked Arkansas, 19-7 Haven't Morley Jennings' Baylor teams been doing that for years? The Baylors are good again and it wouldn't cause more than a yanvn if they drop Nebraska next Saturday at -Lincoln. They've scrappers every Saturday and can ruin more plans and cause more "upsets" than any team in the nation. Texas sophmores struggled but it was no use against Oklahoma's powerhouse. Cowboy Jack Grain made two sensational touchdown runs of 68 and 71 yards in the 24-12 drubbing. Arkansas is in for an afternoon of battling next Saturday at Austin. Rice's Ernie Lain passed and ran for a touchdown against LSU—then fumbled across the goal line, LSU roared back and scored. Final score LSU 7, Rice 0.

"Thanks," he acknowledged briefly. "Just something I picked up when I wasn't looking." She nudged Keith. "Cheerful ray of sunshine, isn't he?" "I'll let you in on a secret," said Keith. "Web isn't half the sourpuss you think he is. He's really swell suy and everyone likes him. Somehow you and him don't hit it off so well, so you think he's a droop." "Poor, misguided soul, he hasn't given himself half a chance to like me." "And he doesn't have to as far as that goes." "Jealous—already?" "Terribly." He showed her through the house after they had eaten. "This is where Dan and I park the bodies," he said, opening the door to their room. "And I'll bet. I know which is yours and which is his desk?" she mused. "How?" "Simple. The one that's barren of books and things scholastic in general would be yours. Very elemental.

'•Hope so," Keith said, just as a pledge attracted his attention. "Phone call," Keith told Joan. 'Bo back in a minute." "Needn't hurry," Tommy chirped, and Keith threatened him with a look of mock severity. Joan turned to find Tommy .•-•taring at her. "Johnson . . . Johnson," he was saying softly.
