Debt-Paying Campaign for Party Monday N. T. Jewell to Lead Democratic Drive 7 in Hempstead County Hempstoacl county will begin its share of the work next Monday in campaign over America to i-.-ii.se funds by individual and business subscriptions to pay off the 1940 campaign deficit of the Democratic National Committee. N. T. Jewell, Hempstead county chairman, said canvassers, to be an- .TOunced Saturday, will cover the downtown section. He pointed out that local stores and other business houses have been particularly blessed in a business way the past year and should respond quickly and loyally to this party appeal. tMr, Jewell made the following opening statement: "The Democratic National Committee informs us that financial obligations left over from the 1940 election still remain unpaid and that the r/jmmittcc is.desper^ly -in need of •J3nds*'to cariy'on its' \vorfc"-througri- out the nation. "No one in Arkansas will deny that through a Democratic Leadership, this state has shared bountifully. There is not a person in our county who '.ivsn't in some way or other been a beneficiary of our present administration, "It seems, therefore, that our people ought to, and I am sure will, recognize the assistance the Democratic Party has given State and County and Jhen these factors are brought to their attention there will be no doubl about a willingness to contribute anc in a very generous manner." The deadline for raising the money is next Wednesday, February 18, Mr •Vjwcll said, as final reports must be made at the Washington Birthday Democratic rally in Little Rock February '£i. Senator A.

S. anti-aircraft guns during increasing fighting in the Philipincs was ynportcd Friday by the war depart- iV.cn I. The dive-bombers actively supporting aggressive enemy patrol action mistakenly bombed and machine-gunned their own infantry, with heavy casualties, the communique said, f'Victims of the mistaken attack were identified as elements of the 122nd Japanese regiment of Gen. AVira Nara's 65lh division. A man of our world would be able t« leap 10 a licaght of 1000 feet if he Uould live on Mars. Cranium Crackers Northern Neighbor All our good neighbors are not (t'jouth of the border, for Canada probably has been a good friend to the United States longer than any nation. Do you know these Canadian questions. 1. Which are the maritime pro... vinces of Canada? The prairie pro* vinces? 2. Who is prime minister of Canada and where is his official residence? 3. Name a large Canadian city farther south than Seattle, Wash., ilitlic largest city in Canada, and a Canadian city famous for its wheat market. 4. What is Canada's legal relation tu the British Empire? 5. Name two big lakes in ^northwestern Canada which arc ''famous in fact and in adventure fiction. Answers on Comic The British had had the three Gcr- nnn men-of-war, Battleships Scharn- lorst and Gneisenau, and Cruiser ?rinz Eugen, cooped up in Brest harbor, just across the English Channel, ever since tne fall of France. But last night the three ships, helped with an 'umbrella" of German warplancs, escaped through the whole English Home Fleet. Nothing like it has happened to Bri- Uiin in her 100-year mastery of the English Channel—and judging from what the London newspapers say in in the Associated Press dispatch at the top of today's front page the British people are hot against their high sea nnd air commands. Funny, at this distance. And yet comforting. Somebody made a mis- Lake, of course. But at least in England and the United Stales when a mistake fS made you HEAR ABOUT IT. Comforting also to the unfortunate man or men who may eventually be alamcd for it. Career finished. But they won't be executed. They won't be mysteriously stricken with a "heart attack," fashion for German generals caught off base in Russia. By WILLIS THORNTON The Test There is no need lo work up a temperature of 105 degrees becaues Democratic Party Chairman Flynn said the country ought to elect a Demorcatic House and Senate this fall. That is what party chairmen are for— to plug for election of members their party. v lFlynn plJt.it badly, urging election of Dcmorcats on the ground that only such could properly support the President. That is nonsense as Flynn probably knows himself. It is also bad politics, as the President knows, with the memory of President Wilson's appeal for a Demorcatic Congress in 1918 far fresher in his memory than in Flynn's. He remembers that all Wilson's appeal did was to present him with both a House and Senate predominantly Republican. So the President disavows Flynn's appeal, and rightly so. The people are too sensible to be much moved by partisan appeals al a time like this. What's wanted in Congress today is men of the highest ability we can get, men eager and loyal to support their country in a fight that may well be one for its very existence. Whether they are members of one party or another is not going to cut much ice with the majority ol the voters this year, and the chairmen of both parties will do well to remember it. What both parties ought to do is prune off their own dead limbs, and present the clccloratc with candidates of definitely good qualifications. Our prediction is that fatheads, drones, players-on-prejudice, exploiters of tiie purely political, gravy-boatmen, windbags, johnny-comc-latelys, coat-tail- riders, supporters and critics for purely political motives nonentities, mis- ui.'-'rs of franks, seconcl-guessers, hand-wringers and incompetents, are all going to have a rough road to ride to election this fall. Parly politics as such may as well adjourn for the duration. We need congressmen who will support the war, not blindy, but intelligently and agrcssively. We need critics who will criticize alertly, under- standly, and always with -the sole purpose of making the war effort more effective. The country, which is pouring out its blood and its money to win the war, is in no mood for partisan posl- urging by Flynn or anybody else. The party that can present the electorate with the best list of congressional candidates, intelligently alert to prosecute the war with effectiveness, ought to get u majority regardless of which parly it is; preferably if it is a combination of both. We need all the brains, ability, and real patriotism in Congress that we can summon there, and the country is not greatly concerned about which party furnishes them. Geo.

Singapore Holds on, But Net Is Drawing Tight Japanese Concede They Are Still Two Miles From City's Heart By the Associated Press A terse, dramatic message from Lt. Gen. A. E. Pcrcivnl disclosed that the British defenders of Singapore still were putting up "stout resistance against great odds" Friday us Japanese siege armies pressed within two miles of the city's heart. A Singapore communique at 5 p. m. (5 a. m. C. W. T.);ndicalcd the union jack continued to wave over the island metropolis. Japanese shock troops were now fighting in the city's suburbs. Even the Tokio radio spoke of "firm resistance" at Singapore. Net Closes Tighter Domci,, official Jnpane.se news agency, conceded the invaders were still two miles from downtown Singapore, but while the British fought a delaying action it was apparent the net was steadily drawing tighter. In the Dutch Indies the NEI command reported a temporary slackening of the many-pronged Japanese drive aimed at Java amid ominous hints that the United Nations high command might be preparing to fall back to Australia. Dispatches from Batavia said the Dutch, fully aware that the fall of Singapore would open the flood gates for an all-out Japanese assault on Java and Dutch Sumatra, were determined to resist against any odds. "We will go on fighting and damn the consequences," a semi-official spokesman declared. Dutch Determined The spokesman said the Dutch Dutch Admiral would never abandon their rich tropic islands without a fight even if Gen. Sir Archibald Wavell's supreme Allied command decided the best strategy would be to surrender Java and Sumatra bases and withdraw to Australia. The Dutch command said "scorched earth" destruction of the harbor works at occupied Macassar, chief port on Celebes island, north of Java, had been so effective that "the enemy will not find anything of use to him." The Macassar harbor area was reported still in flames. In the 14-day-old siege of Singapore latest official dispatches said the Japanese invasion hordes were pressing violent air and artillery attacks on the last toehold of British defense with heavy figjiting raging about the Macrithie reservoir in the center of the island. "Shelling has been frequent on forward areas and on Singapore town," a British communique belying a Rome radio broadcast which asserted the Japanese flag was already flying over fifties Square iu downtown S'inga- Dutch Vice Admiral C.

Australian Law Body Convened Called Feb. 20; Hear Report on Pacific Crisis CANBERRA, Australia (/P)— Prim Minister John Curtin announced Fri day that "because of the continue! deterioration of the situation, in th Pacific the Australian parliament ha been summoned to meet February 2( Curtin's announcement was inter prcted to mean parliament would b convened in secret session almost im mediale.ly after it assembled. It wa apparent the prime minister intend ed to report the latest facts in th Pacific situation. The decision to summon parliamen was represented as emphasizing th seriousness of news from the Pacifi war zones, and follows the reques. of opposition leaders to convoke th legislative body earlier than Marc 11, the original date set. 0 todio Industry Converted 100 to War Uses Plants Unconverted After 4 Months Pass to U. S. Automatically WASHINGTON—(/PJ—The War Pro- .uction Board announced Friday it lad ordered the 200-inillion dollar adio manufacturing industry to con- erl its entire facilities to arms pro- !uction within the next four months. If the conversation is not accomp- ishcd within that period, the board leelared in a virtual ultimatum, the government will take over uncon- erted plants break up their or- ;anization and shift their equipment and labor "to other parts of the ec- momy, where they could be mobilized 'or was production." The ultimatum was laid down, it was learned at a meeting of representatives of 55 radio set manu- 'acturors by R. R. Guthrie, assistant chief of the WPB beureau of industry tranches. Civilian output of the industry recently was ordered cut 40 per cent under 1941 production as a preliminary to the award of some two billion dollars in arms contract to radio manufacturers. Officials said it was expected that the major portion of the conversion could be completed within three montlis. Schools' Attention Called to 'Wide World War Book' On Saturday, February 14, The Star will offer for sale through its newsboys, newsstands, and the newspaper office the WIDE WORLD WAR BOOK, a 16-page tabloid in two colors compiled by The Associated Press for nationwide distribution on this date. The price is lOc per copy. The WIDE WORLD WAR BOOK is the only up-to-the- minute WAR ATLAS that con be bought anywhere, drawn by the map artists of The Associated Press who make their changes simultaneously with the wire news, and printed on metropolitan color presses in Buffalo. To give you an idea how fast The Associated Press moves, even on an auxiliary job like this, The Star ordered 4,000 copies of WIDE WORLD WAR BOOK last week-end—and the whole shipment, printed in two colors, and with the newspaper name on the front page, arrived in Hope yesterday! Obviously the WIDE WORLD WAR BOOK has an intense appeal for students and all the rest of the public which is following the day-by-day course of the war—a war which has made other atlases as obsolete as ancient history. •O Ilainmerlc.ss Gun Daw, an Englishman, introduced the | liainmciiess gun into England in 1862.

Draft Dodger Is Shot by FBI • o":, - Resists Arrest by Federal Men Near Batesville BATESVILLE — Hcrbic Rains, 27 farmer who lives about three miles west of Melbourne, Izard county, is in a hospital here suffering from gunshot wound in the abdomen, inflicted by a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent as Rains resisted arrest on a charge of violating the Selective Service act. Physicians said they believed Rains would recover. Also in the hospital here arc the alleged draft 'dodger's sister, who suffered a head injury when she either fell or jumped from the ambulance Thursday, and a brother, Dallas Rains 18, who suffered a minor skull fracture in a scuffle with federal officers at the Rains home Wednesday afternoon. Rains father, I. H. Rains, 64, pleaded guilty to a charge of resisting federal officers when arraigned before United States Commissioner Dean Lindsey here Thursday and was ordered held to the federal Grand Jury. He was placed in the Jonesboro jail in absence of $2,500 bail. Russians Break. Through Nazis Soviet Armies in White Russia, Near Poland By the Associated Press Russia's triumphant armies reached White Russia Friday striking into the German-held republic bordering old Poland while at sea RAF bombers pursued three of Germany's mightest warships which escaped from the battered haven of Brest, France Thursday. Ski troops Advance Soviet front-Hne dispatches said Russian ski troops dashing across heavy snow had penetrated the German lines into White Russia. The locale of the' penetration was not given but Russian forces sweeping down from the Valdai hills northwes of Moscow were known to have reached toropets, about 65 miles from the White Russia border, more than two weeks ago. White Russia lies west of Smolen- sk, key German base on the Niepei river, 230 miles west of Moscow.

British in Trouble While the Red armies hurled Hitler's battered legions back toward their starting point England sought to block the escape of the powerful sea raiders who rang a gantlet of air, sea and shore bombardment in the misty Strait of Dover Thursday. The raiders were the 26,000-ton battleship Scharnhorst and Gneisenau and the 10,000-ton Prinz Eugen. London dispatches said it was believed that the RAF's biggest bombers were making a desperate effort to destroy the Nazi squadron before it could reach Helgoland Bight and the freedom of the North Sea. The German high command said more than 600 planes were fighting at times in the running channel battle and listed a British destroyer sunk, another set afire, and 45 RAF planes shot down. Only seven Nazi planes were acknowledged lost. 16 Jap Ships Sunk on Feb. 1 Navy Gives Full Score on Marshall Island Raid PEARL HARBOR—(/P)—U. S. naval officers gave details Friday of their first major offensive of the war—the devastating Feb. 1st raid which wiped out important Japanese bases in the mid-Pacific. Jubilantly but prosaically they related how units of the Pacific fleet blasted bases in the Marshall and Gilbert islands, flanking U. S. supply routes to Australia and New Zealand (the Navy Department in Washington announced details of the attack Thursday night). Four • military air .bases vwcre'rde- stroyed, 16 enemy ships—including a converted aircraft carrier, a destroyer, a cruiser and two large submarines —were sunk and two modern military villages were levelled. Forty-one Japanese planes including four-en- gined bombers were blasted on the ground and from the sky. American plane losses were given as only five. (The islands, some 2,000 miles southwest of Hawaii and about 1,800 miles from Australia, lie across the mosl dircet route of supply between the U. S. and the western Pacific war theater. (The navy communique Feb. 1 announcing the attack said many enemy auxiliary ships were sunk or damaged, many enemy planes destroyed, and installations ashore heavily battered but gave no figures of enemy losses.] It was estimated t]iat enemy nava! and merchant shipping exceeded 100,000 tons. Probably an additional 60,000 tons were damaged. Naval officers were jubilant as they described the success of the sudden raids over an area of 350 to 450 miles "We struck precisely at 3 minutes to 7—and by noon we were on our way put having completed the orders." There was no estimate made of casualties to enemy personnel. Admiralty and RAF Hammered by Angry Press Battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau Escape From Brest LONDON—(/P)—Germany's audacity 'n parading three of her most valuable ships of war past Britain's tightly- guarded front door shocked these islands Friday. There was instant clamor to know how a second-rate navy could do that against His Majesty's sea guardians, and the press began shoutnig for scalps. They Get Away By now the 26,000-lon German battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau^ ' and the 10,000-ton Prinz Eugen pro-' bably reached the haven of German waters in the Helgoland Bight after running the length of the English Channel with an escort which slipped back the narrow corridor's defenders and knocked 42 British planes out of .he sky. Not only the blow to Britain's air and naval prestige in which the empire's pride is highest but also its consequences disturbed the British. With the British fleet involved in the Mediterranean and Far Pacific the Germans now have earned an opportun-' ity to join those powerful ships to their other battle forces and possibly heavily weight the scales of naval power in the Atlantic. Much censure fell on the air branch-RAF and the fleet air arm— for it was virtually an umbrella of air protection stemmin,g out in relays from German bases on the French coast which saw the flotilla safely through the Channel—a century-old ^ symbol of the British Isles invulner- U. S. Being Licked, Says Texas Solon WASHINGTON -(/Pj- flepresenta- live Simmers (Dem., Tex.) veteran chairman of the Judicial Committee, solemnly told the house Thursday "We're being licked," ami cried out to Congress to rouse the nation to its danger. "My God," he shouted, "are we going to let the hope of the ages perish from this earth because of our unworthiness, because we, as did France, insist upon business as usual. America, Sumners told the House "doesn't yet realize that it is in the greatest war of all time, facing the greatest military machine in history." But he said that even though he had not found an awakened public consciousness, "The American people have got the stuff in them to do the job." YOU'RE GOlMS TO 1 THf RUBBER ON VOLIR ' TIRE' i Newspapers Caustic "British sea power has received the' most insolent challenge made against "i it for years," declared the Evening Standard. "No German fleet ever sailed through the straits of the Channel in' ^ the last war, indeed, no enemy fl^frt has ever dared to do it for more than • a century- The sea was ours." It .hurled a fistful of "whys?" at the RAF and the Navy, asking whether the air force had wasted its money on huge bombers instead of buying torpedo planes and whether air pb- - wer was effectively co-ordinated with ' the other services as it has shown to be in Japan and Germany, "The urgent need is for reform at the top," said the Evening News.
