WASHBURN- What Oil Men Have to Have Roads, Telephones, and Homes Barnsdall Oil company's discovery of a new oil field south of us poses some vital questions for Hope, her leaders her people, and all those who do business here ' the petroleum business moves fastcr®- than anything else on earth. Oil men need roads to get place on, need big-city telephone facilities, and! as the field grows, become the city's largest purchasers of new homes. Hope and Hempstead county have already moved to improve the road situation, the Chamber of Commerce sponsoring a county-constructed gravel road south of Patmos to the I county line. But I hear that oil men are complaining that long-distance telephone service here is insufficient. They say that in Texarkana they can get a dived wire to Tulsa—and they have to call Tulsa several times every hour, 24 hours a day. Tulsa, as you know, is oil capital of the world. ...

The staggering total of losses inflicted on the Japanese shipping by the Dutch alone was announced in an Fighting Now Only 18 Miles From Singapore Navy Announces 20 Axis Subs Sunk or Damaged by U. S.

By the Associated Press Japanese invasion hordes stormed within 18 miles of ; Singapore Friday hurling 90,000 troops into a bloody climatic assault to snatch at the 400 million dollar "crown jewel" of Bri- tams far Pacific sti-onghold. As the battle thundered nearer to the mile wide Johore strait separating Singapore island from the Malayan mainland the British headquarters acknowledged the gravity of the situation. "In the central front there was contact with the enemy about Kulai " the communique said tersely. Kulai is 18 miles north of the great naval base and lies on a broad highway lead- 'n 1 S ™eaP°re causeway at Johore Bahru. The causeway already has been mined for demolision 4 Indies Attack Across the south China sea Dutch troops were reported to be locked in bitter fighting with other Japanese invaders in four widely separated zone of the Indies Archipelago—at .Balik Papan, on the east Borneo coast, above Pontianak.chief port in western ? 0r £ eo '., °i^ the Minahassa Peninsula T?lebe,s ,Island,,>and.,aro.un (Continued on Page Five) Fighting not only continues near Balik Papan but in the'town "itself, the Dutch said. '•'•••,' Indies troops previously destroyed Balak Papan rich oil fields before the Japanese Indaed. A Philippine bulletin reported only light fighting on Batan Peninsula hi the past 24 hours but added: "The arrival of fresh Japanese'troops at the front and movement behind, the lines indicated preparation by the enemy for the resumption of a large scale offensive of more than 200,000 Japanese troops including an entire army now besiege General Douglas MacArthur's little defense forces for 28 days on Batan Island. Conflicting Claims While the Japanese thrust Octopus- like invasion tentacles deeper into the South Seas a special bulletin from the German command said Nazi U- boats operating off the U. S. and Canada coast sunk 43 ships totaling 302,000 tons since the war started with the United States. German claims — adding 13 ships totaling 74,000 tons to previous announcements—was far in excess of anything reported here. While figures put the total at 14 Washington quarters conceeded that a new wave of U-Boats attacks on American and Canadian shipping was likely despite U. S. counter blows which already have sunk or damaged at least 20 Axis submarines. "Enemy submarines continue to operate off the east coast of the U. S. and are reported as far south as Florida," a Navy communique said, Utilization of Sour Gas Seen Desulphurizotion Plant Going Up in McKamie Field EL DORADO, Ark - Almost complete utilization of south Arkansas sour gas in connection with various new development projects is expected at an early date but there is no danger of a shortage and reserves are ample to supply all projected war industries and other plants, including those for making synthetic rubber and plastics, in the opinion of engineers of the Arkansas Oil & Gas Commission. Gas production in the state now is 117,156,000 cubic feet and while 100,000,000 feet are earmarked as "contracted," the engineers point out that present fields are fully capable of producing upwards of 150,000,000 cubic feet daily and estimate that the new Midway field in Lafayette county will add about 25,000,000 cubic feet daily to the total. Included in the figure listed as under contract is the gas that eventually may be used in connection with erection of two steam generating power plants, and war industries in various parts of the state, including the aluminum plant at Lake I '"""I (Continued on Page Five)
