H. WASHBURN Eire Protests Landing of U. S. Combat Troops Prime Minister Irish Government Not Consulted DUBLINW- Prime Minister Eamon do Valera issued a statement Tuesday protesting against the arrival of United States troops in northern Ireland, across the border from Eire. :'j The statement declared that Eire was not consulted either by British or American governments with regard to their coming. Do Valeria based his objection on an emphasis with the split between ,.Eire and North Ireland by the cstnb- ' iishment of American forces on the north side of the border. His statement referred to the fight 20 years ago when he said the Ireland nation was petitioned despite the will of the Irish, people. ,. He compared the -division'--^-Ireland with the partition of Poland and called it one of Hie crudest wrongs that could be committed. However, he declared the people of Ireland have no feeling of hostility toward and no desire to be brought , :n any way into conflict with United States. the Business in War-Time Rationing and Substitutes public is braced against the shock of war-rationing on items as new automobiles and new tires, but since our actual entry into war so many processed materials have been , nn-H ° pr ?/°" nd£cha nge may follow in our manner of i_g nd our methods of merchandising. D Metals dropped out of civilian living at once, for metals are a prime factor in making war. Civilian production therefore turned to plastics. But plastics, too, I am informed, have been curtailed—and we will return to wood. The obvious suggestion is that the metal plants of the North and East will produce for the war machine, while the South and West furnish tremendously increased share of the articles used by the American civilian population. Furthermore, the country - side throughout the North and Eust has SaVS I rich k 0( -' n Drained of farm workers. They 7 a • 11311 | ];1VC gono Qff (o Now Jcrscy lo work in the metal fabricating plants. Therefore the South and West will be called upon lo furnish most of the nation's food, as well as textiles and timber. * * * For a generation Americans' place of residence and manner of doing business have been predicated on the unrestricted use of automobiles. Many a business man throughout the nation lives 10 to 20 miles from his business. Many a customer drives that far to do her daily shopping. How will the car and tire stoppage affect them? Will people evacuate the suburban areas and move back to the central cities, there to live compactly once more? Will all long-range buying cease, and will business once more revolve entirely around the neighborhood store but a few bocks distant? '"' The answer depends on how long the war lasts. Should it run for a generation, as in the days of Napoleon, the answer might be that all these things will happen—turning back the pages of American civilian economy for 50 years. But assuming that the war runs only a few years we are likely to see more change in the nature and appearance of the articles we buy than in the marketing system which handles them. Fully half the cost of maintaining an automobile is the depreciation and other "overhead" of merely owning one. So long as Americans own automobiles they will use them. And so long as they use them there should not be any far-reaching changes in the residential and merchandising habits that we now know. I grant you there will be inconvenience in the future as regards automobile tires. But the resort and travel people will be the ones to worry about that. We may not be able lo risk long trips— but even indifferent tires will carry the American people about their daily tasks for a long time to come. * * * By WILLIS THORNTON All Can Serve — Including Lindbergh It is not a time to harbor past grudges, to brood over past mistakes, to moon over might-hav.e-beens. A lot of slates were wiped clean on December 7, 1941. In a sense everything began from the beginning on that day. It is what we do now and hereafter (hat counts. What we thought or did not think, did or did not do, before that day when actual war came, is all tinged with unreality. In this war for our existence, ey- ery man and woman must bear a share; every hand will be needed. A man named Charles Augustus Lindbergh trained 17 years ago as an Army flyer. Later the holder of a reserve commission which he resigned April 28, 1941, he now wishes to be of service again. Though this man was against American involvement in war, so were many others. Yet since war has come, they wish to serve. Though this man repeatedly said that the war could not be won, and that to send military supplies to the Philippines was to strip American home defense, he probably realizes now that the war MUST be won, CAN be won, and WILL be won. It would be a mistake to reject the services of any man today who can prove by action that he is willing to help. It is today's action, not yesterday's word, that is the measure. Nothing would be gained by making an issue of Lindbergh's case. As a matter of fact ,it is not highly important. Lindbergh trained as an Army flying cadet at Kelly and Brooks fields 17 years ago .He flew the mail briefly. He became a captain in the Missouri National Guard. After his civilian flight to Paris he was given a colonelcy which was largely honorary. He served brief tours of active duty in 1925, 1927, and 1939, the last largely inspectional. He has never done the refresher flying required of Can-Hauling Schedule Here ., Street Commissioner Rider Appeals to Housewives Ci(,y Street Commissioner Frank Rider urges Hope housewives to co- '6perate with the following schedule for removal of tin cans by the city department: Every other Tuesday, starting today, January 27, in.

S. planes and submarines slashed at the rcmenants of a once powerful Japanese invasion army off Dutch Borneo. In the Philippines two American pursuit planes shot down two Rising Sun dive bombers and disabled a third in the last 24-hours and American torpedo boats engaged a formation of dive bombers, hitting three. In the great American-Dutch naval victory off Borneo, Netherlands East Indies accounts claimed only 28 Japanese .ships sunk and damaged and 13 planes downed—and accounts listed six others as less heavily damaged. Prcsing home Japan's first major defeat the defending American and Dutch forces already have sunk or damaged 344 Japanese warships and troop transports in the shark-infested waters of the strait of Macassar. The running battle continued into its fifth day Tuesday. In addition a dispatch from Batavia said another heavy Japanese warship, believed to have been a battleship, had been sunk in the Macassar straits, Tokyo headquarters acknowledged that four Japanese transports were lost in the battle last Friday during landing operations at Balik Papan, rich oil center on the east coast of Dutch Borneo facing the Macassar strait. On the Malayan front the critical battle for Singapore raged with fury as the Japanese scored a 12-mile advance on the west coast and bitter figj-iting developed at Senggarang, only 48 miles north of Singapore. Front line dispatches said the key rail and highway town of Kluang, 50 miles above Singapore had apparently fallen. The British acknowledged fighting south of there. Balancing reverses in Malaya the arrival of American troops in England and an official disclosure that U. S. bombers would join the RAF brightened the outlook. In England the cry spread like wildfire: "The Yanks are here." Spectators jammed the streets as troops inarched out of dockyards after a brief official greeting to swing along in full battle kit to the strains of "Marching Through Georgia." The contingent, commanded by Major Russell P. Hartlc, was described officially as "combat troops—several thousand strong." OPA Authorized to Ration All Retail Goods Power Extended Also to Sale of Personal Need Products WASHINGTON - (if) ~ Chairman Donald M. Nelson Tuesday gave Price Administrator Leon Henderson full authority to "ration all goods and commodities sold on the retail markets and any other products sold to consumers for the satisfaction of personnel needs.' Burglars Enter Brown's Cafe Moke Way With About $50 in Merchandise Tlio Police Department announced Tuesday that burglars broke into the Brown Cafe on East Division street sometime during the night and made way with approximately $50 in merchandise and caused considerable damage. Merchandise stolen included cig. arettes, beer, a gun, several pounds, of meat, candy and two coats and about 50 pennies. The burglars also damaged a music box considerably but failed to pry open the coin box Henderson could exercise his power over: 1. Sale of products by any person who sells at retail. 2. The Sale of products to ultimate consumers acquiring products for the satisfaction of personnel need as distinct from business and industry needs. The war production boss said the delegation of this authority marks a step in the preparation of rationing of consumer's products. "Shortages exists in many basic raw materials. Further rationing seems inevitable in so far as the civilian population is concerned in ordinary purchase of personnel requirements." The order announced Tuesday gives full control to OP although as chairman of the war production board Nelson reserves the right to ammend the delegation. Chaney Named U.S. Command Heads American Forces in the British Isles AiN IRELAND PORT -<#)- Major General James E. Chaney. rated both as a combat pilot and observer by the U. S. air corps was made commanding general of the U. S. forces in the British Isles it was officially announced Tuesday. General Chaney's chief of staff is Brig. Gen. Charles L. Bolte, Major General Russell P. Hartle who arrived here with several thousand U. S. Army troops Monday and is commanding general of the American forces in North Ireland.

Military Academy in 1908.

Says AEF Only Vanguard of More to Come Demands Confidence of Parliament; U. S. Planes to Team With RAF LONDON -OT- Prime Minister Winston Churchill presented Britain Tuesday with a picture of growing Alhed might and unity and demanded that Parliament vote confidence in his government. Against the frank admission that bad news comes from the Pacific battlefront he told commons that U. S.' troops which have landed in Ireland are only a vanguard of more to come:. "U, S. fighter planes will help defend Britain against air assault and U. S. bombers will join the' RAF in the bombing of Germany. "Considerable reinforcements have reached the Malayan front in the past week. "We have taken many measures with the United States to increase security of Australia and New Zealand and by sending reinforcements, arms and equipment by the best routes. Demands Confidence "It is because I see the light gleaming behind the clouds and broadening upon our path," he said at the end of the report of good and evil in Britain's war fortunes, "that makes me so bold now as to demand a declaration of confidence of the House of Commons as a weapon in the armory of the United nations." At the close of his speech the House of Commons began a debate on Britain's war direction which Churchill will wind up this week with an-, othej- SPG Workers Donate $1724 to Red Cross Final tabulations on the contributions of employees of the Southwestern Proving Ground to the Red Cross War Relief Fund were released this week.

"• He pledged that the Malayan Peninsula and Singapore would be defended to the last inch and doubted that Japan would attempt an invasion % > of Australia—"a very ambitious overseas operation in the precaurious and certainly limited time before the British and American navies regain, as ' they must regain, command of the Pacific. "There is no question of regarding the Pacific war as a secondary operation. "The U. S. Navy is linked hi the most intimate union with the Admiralty, both operating in the Atlantic and the Pacific." Although he said "I must confess to a feeling of weight of war upon me even more than in the summer days of 1940" he spoke with obvious ' confidence and in good humor. He told one of the largest audiences to pack commons session "I feel the broadening swell of victroy and liberation." The house was so crowded that some members had to sit on the floor.
