Take advantage of all sound production information, which can best be obtained by keeping close counsel with Agricultural Extension Service agents, who huve access to information based upon research and experimentation over a long period of years. 3. Anticipate as far in advance essential needs in connection with farming operations and the home, particularly those items which ore subject to priorities, and place orders as far in advance as possible. 4. Retire indebtedness to the maximum degree and, if possible, refrain from creating new ones. A stable agriculture will be an important asset lo our national economy at the end of the war. 5. In the matter of farm labor, recognize that we arc at war and that agriculture will have to supply its proper proportion of the military manpower. Explore all possible sources of substitutions, begin now to train replacements for key employes who may be called to arms, acquire full knowledge of occupational deferment regulations, and work closely at all limes with local draft boards.

It would bo manifestly unfair to stay out of the governor's office two or three months making a campaign with so many things to be done lhat in some way might help to speed up national defense to shorten this war. "In my campaign in 1940 I promised the people lhat I would not desert the governor's office to run for the U. S. Senate.' While' I have been able to put into effect most of the measures originally oullined, I feel that there are yet many things for the development of Arkansas that need to be done, to which I can contribute. I refer especially to the continued development of a balanced industrial, agricultural and social program with great emphasis on securing permanent industries and carrying to a successful conclusion the construction and operation of these defense industries which have been and may be allotted to us. "I am deeply grateful to the many friends who have urged that I make the race for the senate, but I have concluded to devote every, ounce of my energy, strength, and thought at my command where I think my services are most needed.

Combining a Career, Family Jarmila Novotna Is Met Star, Wife and Mother By JOHN SEUJY Associated Press Arls Editor NEW YORK—Jarmila Novotna, who c'omes nearest to replacing the suave and elegant Lucrezia Bori of any current Metropolitan Opera soprano, has an answer for the oldest of all ques- lions asked an artist. The question is whether a career | in opera can be had alongside a | normal and rewarding family life. j And Novotna answers "Yes," in a I firm lone, and then goes on to add, n little shyly, "for me." Always Looks Itight ISTuvotna is one of those rare individuals who always look "right," on stage and off. She is taller than the average singer, her striking good looks are built on the remarkably fine bone structure of her face, and her figure would shame many a model. Better, she can act. Like Bori, she moves with natural elegance, although she, flutters less than Bori and the Novotna voice lacks the edge that affected Bori's through most of her Metropolitan career. It is not so difficult for a singer and her husband to overcome the demands of the stage, Novotna thinks, and make a satisfying, reasonably normal life for themselves. But children are another .matter—"and what," says Novotna, "is a marriage with no children?" No Free Time "You can manage the children," she went on, twisting into the most comfortable angle of the pale gold divan in her upper Fifth Avenue apartment. "But you must schedule yourself. "I have little George, who is three, and Jarmila, who is 9. I have also free time early in the morning, and late in the afternoon. This time I give my children—so really. I have no free time, and do not mind at all." Novotna means what she says about though it was considered positive by our counter-espionage agents there that Japanese consuls and other spies were sending information in code messages by commercial cable and wireless to Tokyo, the law forbade the Federal Bureau of investigation or Army or Navy Intelligence from obtaining copies of these messages without a court order. To have ob- trained a court order would have been to bring our own efforts into the open and of course kill the goose no free time. Her public life is made up of rehearsals, travel, concerts) coaching, performances at the Metropolitan and elsewhere, preparing programs, buying costumes and clothes, fittings, those necessary parties—and interviews. Many of these things her husband, • Baron George Daubek, can share with her. Almost none are possible for the children. "Although," says Novotna, "Parmila goes occasionally to opera matinees, and has the most positive opinions. She expresses them, too. She did not like the animals in 'The Magic Flute,' for example. They were too small and too few for her. And it is bad if a change is made in an opera she already has seen, for she remi-mbers everything." Fi'inily of Linguists Both the children have learned Czech from their parents and their Czech nurse. Jarmila spoke Czech, French, German and English when she came to tills country, but has forgotten everything but Czech and English now. And George, Jr., is picking up some English, but still expresses himself most forcibly in Czech. Mine. Novotna spends her free lime with the children, when she can. She buys their things, helps with their j friendships, arranges their parlies. Jarmila is in the Dallon school, so her mother look time off from her schedule to sing Czech and English carols for them because it pleased her daughter. Even the family apartment on upper Fifth Avenut was chosen so the children might walk in Central Park. "I also hoped to walk every day," said Mine. Novotna. "But it is nol possible. Mother has no time left." Senate, and that I was laying plans | for the 1944 campaign—a campaign i more than two years hence. j "Had I desired to take a part in the | 1942 senatorial campaign, I would have announced for that office myself. And I certainly am not attempting to run another purported campaign that is more than two years in the future. "The article was utterly withoul foundalion and there were no facts to substantiate it.

Give close attention to Ihe health of the family. Every man-hour lost in agricultural production means lhat much delay in ultimate victory. Rigid adherence to a balanced diet of food cannot be overemphasized. 9. Buy generously of defense bonds and stamps and contribute generously to the Red Cross and other worthwhile charitable organizations. 10. Organize more thoroughly now than ever before for, in addition to all of the others, three important reasons: (1) That agriculture as an industry will be assured of continued protection from demoralized markets while farmers redouble tneir efforts to attain the greatest food .production in world history; (2) That the fundamental democratic processes will be protected at home from Quislings who may try to take advantage of the confusion involved in the war effort to promote selfish political, financial, or idealogical interests af the expense of the general public welfare; and (3) that agriculture as an industry will i uve adequate representation in the pe'jce councils when the war ends.

Attempts to circumvent that law met a legal stone wall. (2)—Although telephone cmmunica- lions between Japan and Hawaii were maintained until AFTER the first blows were struck, it was impossible for the FBI, Army or Navy to tap the wires and make records of the many long distance calls that shuttled back and forth between Tokyo and Honolulu right up to the morning of December 7. Why? Because congress last summer refused lo pass a law to permit wire-tapping even in cases of counter-espionage—refused to pass it in spile of recommendations from the White House, the Army, Navy and Department of Justice. As a matter of feat, one such telephone message was intercepled about 24 hours before Ihe firsl bombs fell. The conversalion was about flowers, the beautiful weather and points of interest around the islands. Now, not even the most esthetic Japs would be paying long distance tolls for a j discourse so trivial as that. It probably was one of the hundreds of conversations that passed in code over public wires, with nobody able to do anything about it. There is a third phase of this counter-espionage activity that has nothing to do with the communications act. That is that there were known to be more than 200 Japanese consular agents in Hawaii and the Roberts report leaves no doubt that these made up an army of spies. The report also makes it clear that although other counter-espionage agents wished to force these agents to register in compliance with the law passed for' that very purpose, or arrest them, the Army command in Hawaii objected for fear of antagonizing the civilian Japanese population in the islands and precipitating trouble from Tokyo. This then was the situation which led the Roberts report to conclude in effect that if there were any military or naval secrets in the islands that the Japanese didn't have and make use of in that vital zero hour on the morning of Dec. 7. it would be hard to discover what they were. Our counter-espionage set-up was this: in 1936, the FBI opened its first office in Hawaii, but was concerned then only with civilian matters. In 1938, the budget bureau uncovered some technicalities and the office had to be closed for lock of funds. It was reopened in 1939. In 1940, President Roosevelt ordered the FBI to take over counter-espionage and sabotage investigations but WITH complete cooperation with Army and Navy Intelligence. That is the way they were working in the islands in December, 1941, and there is NO indication in the published report that these agencies didn't do all that they could considering they were ham-strung by laws preventing access to their most important sources of information. In the House of Representatives the other day. Rep. Emanuel Celler, of Brooklyn, taking more cognizance of 1hi. L ; phase of the Roberts report than most did, introduced a bill to permit these agencies to tap wires and cobles in counter-espionage cases. "DEFENSE WORKERS!
