Juan Antonio Rios, 56, exponent of full co-operation with the United States, won with n total of 257,080 votes— but his opponent, General Carlos Ibancz Campo, hacked by Axis forces, ran only 56,000 votes behind, polling 202,033. It is disappointing, at first glance, to find such a close division between the peoples of a sister republic on the most fundamental issue of our generation. But, on second thought, Chile has irrevocably spoken, and in our favor. This leaves only Argentina, among all the Americas, still retaining diplomatic relations with the Axis. We still hold free elections on this side of [he world. The people of all Chile have .spoken. And in the last analysis it is heartening, however close the vote be, to find that in a free and open election the common people of Chile have understood the grave question before the Western world, and have trusted the United States' leadership and elected to stand beside her. Nor is Chile's forward step in any manner of speaking n reflection upon the integrity of the people of Argentina who have thus far refused to sever relations with Germany, Italy and Japan. Argentina is the world's largest exporter of beef and wheat. She formerly had Britain and Germany for her largest customers. Always she found herself in commercial competition " with the 'United States, herself a produced of beef and wheat, and who bought but little of these commodities from Argentina. The war has treated Argentina's trade more harshly than any other nation's. And the impact has left Argentina bewildered, sore find distrustful. No. 1 among the stable and creditworthy governments of Central and South America, Argentina must, for both her own and our mutual good, be eventually persuaded to "tlu-ow in" with her .sister republics for Western Hemisphere solidarity. And to that task of persuasion our own government and her people must continue to dedicate themselves. For now Argentina is the sole Western world power still speaking to the Axis foe. By WILLIS THORNTON Sweating Off the Fat It i.s always a pleasure to see a public official step right out, grab a problem squarely by the horns, and go to the mat with it. Possibly the pleasure is enhanced by the fact that it happens so seldom. Anyway, every state and local official knows that in this time of war, with federal debt rising, with costs °^ living rising, it is highly desir- ao ' e thai stale and local expenses and as pos. Few officials have had the fortitude to tackle the problem squarely. Governor Lehman of New York is an exception. In presenting his budget to the stale legislature, he has recommended a 25 per cent reduction in each individual's personal income (axes payable this spring; a similar reduction in same taxes payable this spring; a similar reduction in same taxes payable in 1843; a cut of five millions in total budget despite unavoidable war expenses and all this in the face of inevitable loss of revenue from auto and gas taxes. He proposes to postpone almost all projected public improvements, cut expenses all around, and actually give the stale taxpayer some relief to enable him to carry his increased fed- crla taxes. How Governor Lehman will fare wilh his proposals, wo do not yet know, but such a program, actually embodied in a budget and shoved straight at a state legislature, is a fitting subject for luod cheers. Much of the saving that can be made by state and local governments in times like this can be made without injury or handicap to individuals. Many employes will be leaving to join the armed services. The total will fall automatically if new employes are not immediately added, yet it will not be necessary to fire anybody. All capital improvement projects not necessary to the conduct of the war which can be postponed will not only add their share to present economy, but will be waiting to be launched after the war at a time when jobs and work may be at a premium. Thus the postponement serves a double purpose. Every stale and local government has before it a definite Ubk: to sweat off the fat and get down to minimum operations consistent with safe- taxes be cut just as far sble.

Singapore Attacked SINGAPORE -(IP)- Japanese dive bombers struck violently at Singapore Tuesday .spreading fires and destruction and a Tokyo military spokesman declared that a general offensive against the island stronghold was imminent. Singapore's big defense guns ranged along the mile wide Johorc strait thundered above the scream of ail- raid sirens at Japanese troops in the jungles on the opposite shore of the Malaya peninsula. RAF scouting planes reported heavy movement of Japanese troops southward indicating that the invaders were massing in full strength on the lower tip of the peninsula before launching a direct assault on the 400 million dollar island fortress. "Enemy air activity over Singapore ;Has been considerable during the last 24-hours, high level and dive bomber attacks being carried out and causing some fire," British headquarters reported. , Military casualties were said slight. Spotted Typhus Is Reported in Germany BERN, Switzerland — (If)— Spoiled Typhus has spread from the eastern front to Germany and the Nazi-occupied areas the German health ministry announced Tuesday listing 126 cases in Germany and 138 in the occupied eastern countries. A demarkation line has been established al which persons coming from the east are examined for lice. Russians Move Up for Attack on Smolensk British Troops Take Offensive on One Sector of Libyan Front By the Associated Press Russian troops dragging machine- guns and cannons on sleds at 40 degrees below zero were reported surging forward at several points Tuesday in a drive aimed against Smolensk, 210 miles west of Moscow. At the same time the British radio said German generals had demanded that Hitler send 20 fresh divisions of picked troops to the Soviet front immediately, threatening that otherwise it would be difficult, if not impossible, to prevent a general Russian break. Soviet dispatches said German air and tank reinforcements arriving on the .southern front were being more than matched by Red army weapons. Testifying to Hie Red airforco superiority dispatches from the front credited one Russian air unit with destroying 17 Nazi planes in a week and long range bombers with deepening their offensive far into the German's rear. At one vital railway junction three German supply trains of more than 200 cars were destroyed. Russian forces were reported to have killed 1,400 Germans in three different sectors. Fighting- Near Msus CAIRO—(/P)— Roving British armored columns fought, on the offensive northeast of Msus Tuesday in a dogged effort to hold the inland shortcut which dominates the bulging North African shoreline while the four Indian divisions slowly , retreated through the Gcbol el Achdar coast range. The British Middle East commun- ique said this division was under heavy pressure of enemy forces which apparently had been reinforced. The extent of the withdrawal was not given by Monday this division was said to be just cast of Slonta, about 240 miles from the Egyptian border and 100 miles northeast of Bengasi. Thus while giving away along the coast the British were endeavoring to hold newly-won positions along the inland route.

Favor Huge Loan to China House Committee Votes 500 Million Dollar Loan WASHINGTON, (If)— Authorization for a 500 million" dollar war loan tcf China was approved unamiously Tuesday by the House Foreign Affairs committee.

Must Replace Chile Nitrate War Takes Vital Product From Hempstead Farms Hempstead county farm gardeners should consider how to replace commercial sources of nitrogen if it becomes necessary, Oliver L. Adams, county agent, advises. Defense needs for nitrates and lack of shipping space for the importation of nitrate from Chile may mean there will be no surpluse of nitrate of soda for use on farms and since farm garden crops require considerable amounts of nitrogen in order lo develop properly, farmers should begin developing plans for other sources of nitrogen. In this regard, the county agent points out that one <»{ the best sources of nitrogen and one that is found on practically every farm in barnyard manure. If there are any farmers in the county that do not now save all of the manure produced on the farm for applying to crop land or oil Ihe garden, they can make a direct contribution In the Food-for-Victory campaign by immediately beginning to conserve this source of nitrogen for use on crops, Mr. Adams says. Even though supplies of commercial nitrogen were unlimited, the gardener would find that the application of manure to vegetable crops would he of more value than the use of nitrate of soda alone, according to Earl J. Allen of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. The organic matter that manure supplies to the soil, the Extension horticulturist explain.']) results in improving its physical condition, enabling it to absorb and retain more moisture, thereby being less subject lo drouth during the hot dry summer months. Another method that farm gardeners may follow to supply additional amounts of nitrogen lo Ihc garden, Allen says, i.s lo have Iwo garden areas, planting one to the vegetables desired for home use that year and planting the other to ' legumes that may be turned under during the season as a source of both nitrogen and humus. There arc other advantages of having two alternate gardens. The increasing prevalence of both diseases and insects in gardens has made production a problem for many. By rotating the garden each year, the sproda of disease and the increase in insect numbers can be slopped lo a great extent.

Two Thrusts at Batan Positions Again Repulsed Americans Counter Attack, Overrun 3 Lines Enemy Trenches WASHINGTON-m-Two atlempiS by the Japanese to land troops on the west coast of Batan Peninsula the night of February 2 were repulsed with heavy losses, the War Department announced Tuesday and General Douglas MacArthur's forces also successfully counter attacked the Japanese on their right flank, overrunning three lines of enemy trenches Attack at Midnight Landing attempts on Mac-Arthur's left consisted of first raids by Tatori, special shock troops, which were repulsed by artillery fire and a second and more serious attempt at midnight when the American's night flying pursuit planes discovered a large number of barges approaching the coast under a naval escort. The planes attacked the convoy immediately with light bombs and machineguns and as enemy troops approached the shore the American and Philippine beach defense troops attacked them with artillery. None Reached Shore "None of the barges reached shore, although a number were found disabled and burning along the beaches the next morning," a communique said. On MacArthur's right where the Japanese had attempted to drive a wedge into the defending lines the Americans counter attacked and captured large amounts of enemy equipment. ..MaeAr.thur.reported to the War Department thaV Brig."

MACARTHUR'S/ FORCES ON BATAN—W 5 )—(February 1, delayed)—Bullseye shooting by ar- tillermen of the U. S. armed forces of the Far East is teaching the Jap-" anese a healthy respect for the 155^ mm. field pieces. Artillery officers told their men's accurate fire had repeatedly broken up thrusts against the American and Philippine lines. When I visited the front a single 105-mm. gun was firing for the Japanese. Battery commanders said they had silenced many Japanese batteries in the past few days. Japanese aerial activity also lessened. In this sector American guns command the sole road along Manila Bay over which the Japanese are trying to bring up artillery and tanks for an assault. Lt.
