WASHBURN The Age of Scarcity It hardly seems possible, but the same nation that only a couple of years ago was bemoaning its "surpluses" and "over- tnemy Activity Is Stepped Up MacArthur Reports 23 Women, Children Killed * by Jap Planes WASHINGTON - (/pj - Increasing enemy air activity over General Douglas MacArthur's lines in Bataan and heavy artillery bombardments were ;Jportcd by the War Department in a communique which said 23 women and children were killed and 22 others wounded in n bombing attack on Cabenben, on the southeast trip of Batann Bcninsula. ^ text of the communique, num- >*r 110 of the war, was based on reports received here up to 9:30 a. m. (EWT): "Figure 1 — Philippine theater—: Heavy enemy artillery fire from the Cavite shore bombarded our harbor fortifications with increasing .intensity during most of the day. Damage to our installations and casualties were not great. "In Balaan the enemy is bringing up artillery reinforcements and there is increased fire all along the front and jj^r activity is increasing, "For several days enemy airplanes have been droping poorly printed leaflets on refugee camps behind lines. These phamplets profess great friendship for the Philippines and exported them to cooperate with the in- iruders and join the greater Asia co- prosperity sphere. "Monday bombs were substituted for phamplets. These fell on a refugee camp at the defenseless village of Cabcaben. Eighteen women and five f ildren were killed in this attack d 13 women and 9 children were wounded." Figure 2: "There is nothing to report from other areas." jlroduction is today short of many basic articles in civilian lite. Fortunately the shortage for civilians is only to guarantee an abundance of supplies for the military—and the country as a whole is unchanged from its rich and powerful position of a tew years back. Some of those shortages are quite -Oodd. The other day we had a letter from our paper mill. (Luckily Thc Star two years ago contracted with the Southern pine-newsprint mill at Lufkin, Texas, for its supply, avoid- Ihc possibility of a railroad jam on thc long haul from the spruce- newsprint mills in Canada.) Our Texas mill had plenty of paper, all right, but it was worrying about thc litlle metal plugs that arc inserted into the cores of the rolls of paper to prevent their collapsing during shipment (rolls weigh 650, 1,100 and 1,400 pounds each). Thc mill asked us to save these metal plugs and return them each time wo got thc total up to 1,000. But tho shortage of metal for civilian use had already been so well advertised that The Star force had boon saving said plugs several months before the letter came. I can remember when not merely the plug but thc entire core on which paper was wound was made of iron. Publishers made thc mills slop that because tho iron core added weight lo the shipment of paper, and then thc core had to be returned. Then the mills went to using a fibre , core with a metal tip. That core also I had to be returned, but the freight didn't amount to much. Finally the mills abandoned thc metal tips, used a plain fibre core that could bo thrown away, but braced the ends of thc cores with those previously-mentioned plugs. Nobody saved the plugs, at first. Now everybody saves them. Odd, isn't it—if you lost an armful of metal plugs you might not be able to get a carload of paper! * * * By WILLIS THORNTON Bread Upon the Waters "Cast Ihy bread upon the walers," adjured Ihe Preacher, "for Ihou shall find it after many days." Nineteen years ago the United Stales cast certain bread upon the waters, in the form of life-saving and other equipment which it sent lo Japan out of tho fullness of a kind heart to relieve the suffering in tho disastrous wave of earthquakes, fires, and tidal- waves that swept tho islands. Today that bread is being found again, after many days. The supplies, plainly marked "U, S. Army Transport Merrill," were found in Ihe invasion barges used by Japanese troops to allack MacArthur's Magnificcnts on Balaan Peninsula. The Merrill was thc ship which carried thc mercy cargo from Manila in 1923; General MacArthur is the man who loaded that cargo when he was commander of thc Philippine Scouts. It is but a poor return the Japanese are making for our generous impulse of 19 years ago. Need wo regret thc impulse? We think not. We of the Uniled Slalcs b -liovc in a God of mercy. It is wilh such a God lhat wo must square our actions. If tho Japanese believe in .some sort of divinity thai sees no shame in turning on a benefactor in this way, so much the worse for the Japanese. It is they who must face the responsibility for their actions, us we for ours. In the same way, tho time may come when we will not regret that we held open the door to peace wilh Japan until a bUlst of gunfire came through that very door. It all stands on the record, and we may have confidence lhat the time will come when Japanese lears of bitter shame and regret will try to wipe out the stain of thai treacherous attack at Pearl Harbor. Because others have a concept of morality different from our own, is not less, but more reason to bo true to our own. Shakespeare makes King Henry VI speak wrds which we may well remember today: "What stronger breastplate than a heart untainted! "Thrice is he armed that hath his quarrel just, "And he but naked, though locked up in steel "Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted." That we can remember when bread Churchill Says Nazi Battleships Badly Damaged Asserts By Time They Repaired British to Be Reinforced LONDON— (IP}— Germany lost the use of her 26,000-ton battleships Gneiscnau and Sciiarnhorst "for some time to come" and British strengthened her command of the seas in last week's battle o£ the English Channel, Prime Minister Churchill declared Tuesday in accounting to the House of Commons. Damage inflicted on the German ships during their dash for freedom will lay them up for repairs, the Prime Minister declared, and before they are seaworthy again "the royal navy will be reinforced by important units of the highest quality" along with big new .ships joining the U. S. navy to meet their challenge. Churchill faced his parliamentary critics for the first time since the naval episode last Thursday and the fall of Singapore which stirred up demands for changes which threatened his government, But his report was confident and optomistic. To the cxortalion that he relinquish the extra burden of Minister of Defense, a portfolio he now holds, he answered no. He declined also to discuss the surrender of Singapore. Ho announced that investigation of the Scharnhorst-Gneiscnau episode will seek to determine whether cooperation between the Admiralty and the RAF was all that It should have been. .Even while Churchill was making his statement to Commons there was indication that the RAF had been seeking out the two German battleships at their new German haven. Bombers attacked ports in northwest Germany Monday night it was announced here and a Nazi com- munique told of an RAF attack on Helgoland Bight where the ships are believed to have tied up. tiormandie Is I Total Loss Navy Acknowledges Big Liner Can't « Be Salvaged NEW YORK —(/?)— Rear Admiral Adolphus Andrews, commandant of the Third Noval District acknowlcdg- ed the "ultimate" loss of thc ?GO,000,000 Normandie Monday as a special jjjival Board of Inquiry opened on investigation into last week's fire aboard the former French liner. The inquiry into thc disaster by thc Navy Bo.ird will be closed lo the public, said Rear Admiral Lamar R. I^eahy, who heads it. He said a re- irjrl would be submitted to Navy Secretary Knox. Tho Weekly Underwriter, an insurance publication, said there was, no insurance on the vessel, which the United Stales had taken over as a ''ival auxiliary and renamed the La- Rayeltc, Insurance men, the periodical said, were of thc opinion thai the ship's status at the time of the fire was that of a warship. Marino'under- writers believe thc ship unsalvageablc, it added. Huge New Arms Appropriation Bill to House Measure Calls for $32,070,901,900 for Arms, Lend Lease Aid / WASHINGTON —(IP)— A precedent shattering $32,070,901,900 appropriations bill for arms lend lease aid and construction of merchantships at the rate of two a day went to congress Tuesday with the message that "never in all the history has a nation been faced with war costs of magnitude that confronts us." In itself almost equal to the nation's outlay for World War 1, the collosal new measure would boost total defense program expenditures laid down thus far for the fiscal years 1941, 1942 and 1943 to the staggering sum of 142 billion dollars. The committee held some hope that the war would end before all the money was expended. The House Appropriations committee declared that the "U. S. has embarked upon the largest production of war material ever undertaken by any nation" and asked immediate action. "Billions upon billions of dollars and the output «f more "than half of our factories will be geared to the manufacture of munitions, tanks, guns and other implements and articles for war use," the committee said . ———•—• % tm Hope Boys in Alaska Reported Well, Safe Mrs. Edwin Dossett announced Tuesday the receipt of a telegram from her son, Edwin Dossett, Jr., stationed with the U.

Neal Is Given 25-Year Term Sentenced for Shooting of Mark Jarnigan, Stamps LEWISVILLE — An unsuccessful attempt to rob Mark Jarnigan, liquor store operator here, February 9, during which Mr. Jarnigan was wounded in the arm, resulted in a 25-year sentence to the penitentiary for Andrew Neal Monday. Circuit Judge Dexter Bush then adjousjned court until Wednesday. Neal was unmasked when ho held up Jarnigan and ordered Ihe store owner lo open thc cash register. As her husband started to obey, Mrs. Jarnigan picked up a pistol from under thc counter. When Neal threatened to shool if she did nol pul the pislol down, Jarnigan took the gun from his wife's hands. As he did so, Neal fired, the bullet striking Jarnigan in the arm and emerging from his neck. Although wounded, Jarnigan fired as Neal fled. week has issued instructions to all WPA foremen to release men now working on projects if so requested by neighboring farmers who will employ them. In explaining the procedure, Mr. Sharp said, "Any farmer desiring to employ farm labor can go to the foreman or supervisor of any WPA project operating in the vicinity of his land, and obtain what labor he requires from the foreman, insofar as the labor is available and qulified. The only restrictions being that the farmer must agree to pay the prevailing wage scale in the locality, and he must provide transportation to the men selected, if they live at an unreasonable distance from the farm. Whenever possible, men living near tho farm should be selected for the jobs. Men selected from the job will be immediately released from tho WPA rolls and assigned to the applicant. A WPA worker who is released to and employed by a farmer will be expected to work the same number of hours and under the same condi- lions as other farm laborers employed at the same place. WPA workers when selected for farm work must accept, providing all the conditions are met by the employer, and they will not be reassigned to WPA projects unlil they can produce a statement from thc private employer that thc farm work ended through no fault of the employee. All WPA Foremen have been instructed to comply with thc requests, and to speed the production and harvest of farm products, which arc as necessary as ammunition and guns for thc present war effort. Dutch Prepare for Jap Drive Against Java British Withdraw to New Line in Burma; Singapore Is Renamed By the Associated Press United 'States bombers were believed to have exacted a deadly toll of some Axis submarines — evidently German—for thc Caribbean raids in which they were reported to have torpedoed seven tankers and left at least 59 seamen dead or missing and shelled refineries on the Netherlands West Indies Island of Aruba and Curacao. Dutch Prepare Defenses Half a world away to the west the Netherlands East Indies guarded for the defense of Java against the Japanese legions, apparently preparing for a climatic thrust across the Java sea and the 20 mile-wide strait of Sunda from neighboring islands without waiting for complete oceupation of war-ravaged Sumatra. Counter atlacks followed attacks swiftly in the West Indies Monday. Oil slicks were reported by Lt. Gen. Frank Andrews, U. S. Commander in the Caribbean, to have spread on the sea after explosive charges were dropped by American fliers roaring from their guardian bases. The fliers were among the United States forces aiding the Dutch garrisons.
