Friday, January $0, Famous Choir to Sing Here Will Give Special Program at Methodist Church ^Tlio fmnous MorninRside College A Cappella Choir, one of the country's earliest unnccompaniecl singing or- ganiy.alions, wliieh will arrive here in Hope on Febnim-y 8 to perform under the auspices of the choir of the First Methodist Church, will bring to this city an evening of choral music long to be remembered. The reputation which proceeds them wherever they go is the result of a sincere striving for perfection. Added to this is the great appeal which sacred music of exalted character always makes. Critics invariably comment upon tin- freshness and beauty of these young voices. Trained with the highest'ideal? of choral technique as their goal, they respond as a great human organ to the demands of their director. From emotional grandeur to the faintest hush of :i delicate pianissimo the transition is always skillful and effort- loss. No admission charge . . freewill offering. Our DoilyBrea (Continued From Pnee One) men say Hope has access to the direct Tulsa wire only when Texnrkumi isn't using it. This has got to be changed. It is imperative that the Southwestern Bell Telephone company put Hope on a par with Texarkana immediately. Lack of prompt long-distance service would kill off our chance to be the seat of this new oil boom quicker than anything else one can think of. Several of the oil men already have bought homes in Hope. We extend them greetings, and the pledge that our community will do everything the oil industry can rightly expect a city to do to help promote what looks like the biggest oil strike in years. * * * By WILLIS THORNTON On the Temptation to Talk We may not have enough planes tanks, or ships, but there's one tiling we've plenty of, ba-a-by, and that'* . talk. Shortage of tin, shortage of rubber shortage nf scrap, but a tremendous surplus of verbiage. Words, words, words! Words are good things in their places, especially if they be the right words. We deal in words ourselves. But after all, that's our business and we have nothing more important to do. As much cannot be said for members of the cabinet and. the chairmen of important congressional committees. They are presumed to have foinething much more important to do. When their words, in addition tc l-eing gratuitous are definitely harmful, one wonders whether it might not be a good time to start rationing. Within 48 hours recently. Chairman Connolly of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox sounded off in speeches and statements which caused misunderstandings and ill feeling abroad. In neither case, as far as we can see, was comment absolutely required. If Secretary Knox will give us ; victorious Navy, the country will hi eternally grateful to him. It is quite enough of a job for a man's full time.

Hope makes the wager in the new Paramount force comedy, "Nothing But the Truth," which gambols into the Rialto Theater beginning Sunday, co-starring Paulette Goddard, and featuring a comedy cast packed solid with favorite names, including Edward Arnold, Leif Erickson, Helen Vinson, Catharine Doucet, Glenn Anders, Grant Mitchell, Rose Hobart and Willie Best. An added recommendation is the fact that the new laugh cpus was directed by Elliott Nugent, comedy-wise director of one of the two previous Hope-Goddard adventur- ACNE IS A PAINFUL CURSE Try the clearing-up help of Black and White Ointment's antiseptic action.

It is true that the people need to be informed of the purposes, and as far as military necessity permits, of the plans and activities of their gov- jrmnent. 11 is true that discussion and criticism are proper. But the nulional morale does not depend on a continual stream of talk like a boiler with a stoker underneath.

Right now Hope is just about tops in film comedy, following sock-successes in such comedies as "Road to Singapore," "Road to Zanzibar" and "Caught in the Draft." His film following has been increasing by leaps and bounds with each new picture, until no whis emnience as a comedian is almost undisputed. As for Paulette Goddard, that young lady has been shuttling back and forth between comedy and drama the past few seasons. The beautifufstar recently was seen opposite Charles Chaplin in "The Great Dictator," as Fred Astaire's dancing partner in "Second Chorus," und then as the unscrupulous girl- of-thc-world of 'Hold Back the Dawn,' in which she appeared with Charles Boyer and Olivia cle 'Havilland: In the last mentioned film, Paillette went almost completely dramatic, in contradistinction to the many comedy roles she has played, two with Bob Hope. The.se roles with Mope were in "The Cat and the Canary" and "The Ghost Breakers." "Nothin™ But the Truth," which is adapted to the screen from u famous stage comedy, concerns itself with a bet made by Bob Movie, in the role of a stockbroker that he can tell the truth for twenty-four hours. Sounds like great fun! Boys Will Be Boys BALTIMORE—(/!')—Eighty-year-old John Hopkins was just out having fun with boys in the neighborhood— throwing snowballs in the first snowstorm of the year—when he was hit by an automobile. Patrolmen sent Hopkins to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries, and said lie should be more careful. Fines of 200 speeders arrested in a Nashville, Tenn., suburb were turned over to the infantile paralysis fund.

The British Middle East command said attacks by superior forces which included tanks, necessitated the second British withdrawal from Bengasi in less than a year. The Middle East communique said British patrols in the Msus area, 70 miles southeast of Bengasi forced Axis patrols to withdraw.

Price Control Bill Made Law President Signs Bill but Doubted Its Wisdom WASHINGTON -(/P)- President Roosevelt in signing the price control bill Friday declared thaj. it "tioes not mean that the battle against inflation has been won" and expressed doubt as to the wisdom and adequacy of certain sections. "Amendments may become necessary later on," he added. Earlier at a press conference he praised all sections except those relating to farm prices saying the provision permitting farm prices to rise to 110 per cent parity before the ceiling could be applied was not so good are tended to raise the cost of living. In a formal statement he declared that the price control legislation alone could not successfully combat inflation.

Edson in Washington Sudden Ceiling Best Inflation Defense WASHINGTON - Is the new price '-ill, born of four months' congres- <ional strife and strain, a dead duck before it even has a chance to try its wings and show its stuffing? Capital advocates of the Bernard Baruch theory of freezing all prices ^nstead of selected prices, fear that it is. Their reasoning is that prices have risen so much faster since Pearl Harbor than they did in the preceding 18 months that the only way inflation can be prevented now is through a much more drastic freezing of all prices than is called for by the administration's program of freezing only selected prices. Before Pearl Harbor, wholesale prices were advancing at the rate of about 1% per cent a month. In the first monht after Pearl Harbor the rise was 3 per cent and in one week it was 1 per cent. Increases on the main items—food, furniture and clothes—average about 15 per cent over the past year, but all items are up. Wholesale prices on farm products have gone up over 35 per cent and on foodstuffs over 25 per cent. This rise in wholesale prices has been faster than the rate of rise in the cost of living at the retail level —which, speaks well for the effort which the retail merchants have made to hold prices down—but that can't ••" in tHr> face of more rapidly advancing prices of whole- .'.-ie. y. Sooner, and not later, this can only mean that the consumer is going to be hit harder than ever. His reaction can be expressed in only one way—a demand for wage increases. When that comes, there you have the dizzy spiral which leads only upward to inflation. Of course it's nice fa' have everyone getting a little more jack—regardless of whether it comes in as wages 54 Jap Ships (Continued From Page One) authoritative summary made available to the official news agency Aneta. This one-a-day average, of course, does not include losses inflicted on the Japanese by American, British and Australian action which was considerable in itself. The Dutch list of sunk or damaged Japanese ships included: i One battleship, 1pn cruiresr/, 25 transports, four being troop ships and the fifth a passenger liner, seven destroyers, one seaplane tender, three tankers, one freighter, a cargo ship and five other vessels. Informed sources said the Japanese could not stand such losses in the lung run and that they apparently were willing to accept even greater casualties in an effort to consolidate strategic positions in the Indies and to knock out Singapore before the Allies could bring in reinforcements.

The McKamie Gas Cleaning corporation has let contract for erection of a desulphurization plant in the McKamie field, and it is understood that 30,000,000 cubic feet of gas daily will be marketed through existing gas company facilities for various projects in the state, including possibly the proposed REA generating plant at Camden nnd the proposed plant of the Arkansas Power and Light company. Officials of the Arkansas Natural Gas company have stated their plans are not definite enough at this time to make a statement, but it is understood the firm ii- seeking contracts from operators in the Macedonia and Dorcheat field in connection with plans for a desulphurization plant for cleaning sour gus to be .supplied to defense projects. Officials of the Arkansas Power & Light Co. said they could make no statement .at this time as to their generating plant. Nearly all of the gas from the Shulcr field is being used in the repressur- ing project there, along with some gas from the Village, Atlanta and Magnolia fields, while other gas is being used for pumping fuel in the Smackover and El Dorado fields, as plant fuel for refineries, for drilling in some fields and for gas-lift operations in the Buckner eld. Engineers saj there is no waste of gas in the Magnolia field, all of it being handlec through the Shell gasoline extraction plant and the Lion desuphuri/alio plant. Arkansas is taking the lead among oil producing states in making widi use of gas containing such large quun- tties of Hydrogen sulphide and experiments are being made whereby the gas may be further processed either for the manufacture of sulphur or various sulphur compounds.

The dining room has been completely remodeled and can accomodate banquets and dinner pur- ties. or profits on a sale. The grief in this particular situation is that higher paychecks and bigger sales slips don't produce any more munitions—they make just the same quantity of battleships, bayonets or buttons cost more money which can come only from higher taxes and bigger debts. There is. nothing new in that statement. It is so old now that it should be public axiom number one. But it apparently can't be repeated to often to make it stick. It applies particularly to the present situation because prices now may be advancing faster than they can be controlled under the provisions of the new price administration law. It may take the Price Administration too long to swing into action, it may mean that an organization can't be whipped into shape fast enough to handle these new spirals of inflation. Easing Into Control Up to the time the price bill was passed, Price Administrator Leon Henderson's organization had issued only about 75 price schedules, nearly ail covering materials going into war production. Two-thirds of the principal commodities of general trade are still uncovered. Perhaps the Office of Price Administration has felt that it should go a little slow in plastering price ceilings on these walls of rising prices till after the new price bill was passed. Unquestionably, Henderson's ceiling on peanut oil, cottonseed ofi and other fats and oils was what roused the ire of the farm belt senators who have made the going so tough for the new price bill in the last month. There is a further advantage—a psychological advantage to the idea of freezing all prices as of some given date. When this price bill goes-into Washburn Speaks at ' Arkadelphia Rotary Alex. H.
