Answers oil Comic Page Local interest in AVA centers upon the proposed Narrows dam tor the Little Missouri river, a project already authorized for both flood control and power. While the Narrows dam has not yet won an actual appropriation Mr. Ellis remarks on January 26 when rc- mtroducing his AVA bill disclosed a broad sweep of events. Said the congressman: Great strides have been made during the past year, and many major cogs of the authority arc already in existence or on the way. I list some of them: First. The giant Norfork Dam under construction on the While River in Arkansas has been au- Uiorizcd for power in. addition to flood control. Second. The huge Grand River Dam in Oklahoma has been com- plelctl, except for its flood-control features, and is producing power. Third. The Nimrod Dam on the Fourchc La Favc in Arkansas has been completed for flood control only, but power can and will be installed. Fourth. The Fort Gibson and fif- Ih, Markham Ferry Dams on Ihe Grand in Oklahoma have been authorized for both flood control and power, and initial appropira- tions made for Ihe beginning of their conslruclion. Sixlh. The giganlic Bull Shoals and, sevenlh, Table Rock Dams on the White in Arkansas and Missouri in Arkansas have all been fiulhorized for both flood control and power. Ninth and tenth. Two extensive R. E.

Eleventh. Ark-La has ordered construction of a 45,000 kilowat gas-fueled generating plant in the sour gas fields of south Arkansas. Twelfth. The Defense Plant Corporation has ordered construction of a 120,000 kilowatt gas-fueled generating plant on Lake Catherine in Arkansas to supply an aluminum plant. Thirteenth. R. E. A. cooperatives have constructed many thousands of miles of small transmission lines in the area. Those accomplishments over the past year are almost unbelievable. We need now to begin fitting the machinery together. These projects under this bill will all be integrated and interconnected for maximum efficiency. * * * By WILLIS THORNTON No Overtime Pay on Bataan How many hours a week do the buys on Bataan work'.' If the Japs attack on Sunday do you think the American troops demand double time for overtime? Maybe some of Mac-Arthur's men don't like one of his scrqeanls. Do you believe Ihey pull Ihe trigger fewer times per hour because of thai peeve? The answers come quick and easy. Do Ihey come the same way in the battle of Detroit?

War changes many things, and this, they rightly maintain, is one of them. When congress voted the wage-hour law, the nation understood that one of its aims was a limitation on hours, to spread employment. The goal now is to get more—not less—work from every American. It may be contended thai the 40- hour week is no restriction, that al) an employer has to do is to tell the men to work, say, 48 hours—and pay, them t,jme-and-a-lialf for the extra 8J hours. J This 50 per cent pay increase adds to the manufacturing cost. It means a bigger war bill which the public— all of us—has to pay. And this in the hour of peril when we are all FDR's Speech Arouses Hope of Allied Lands Dutch Gurd for Assault on Java; Burma Front Bolstered by Chinese By the Associated Press President Roosevelt's pledge that the United Nations would tiike the offensive "soon" nroused shining new hope in the anti-Axis hinds Tuosdny as the defenders of Java gurded for n climatic assault by Japan's seaborne invaders. In the first official disclosure that a sizcnble AEF vanguard was already on the scene of action Mr. Roosevelt declared that the United Slates' forces in the Far Pacific were steadily growing and (hat "thousands of American troops arc today in that area." Axis reaction to the president's speech was typified by a Domoi, official Japanese news agency, which asserted that the address was like the "pep talk by an irate football coach" and that "noteworthy commentary was furnished by the report that Japanese warships were shelling the American mainland at about the same time he was speaking from the White House." Other world-wide developments BURMA—London quarters said the Japanese drive into Burma appeared nearing its maximum power and that the invaders were throwing fresh troops against the British positions I along the Sitlang river, 20 miles from I the Rangoon-Lashio railway. Fighting stubbornly the British troops were forced lo withdraw across the 30-mile area between the Bilin and Sittang rivers but fresh Chinese reinforcements were reported streaming into Burma to stem the Japanese onslaught. A London military spokesman said Japan had 26 divisions—at least' 390,000 troops and possibly as many as 500,000 —now fighting in the Far Pacific theater and acknowledged that "we do not have so many " DUTCH INDIES-Dutch and Allied troops were reported still resisting fiercely in Sumatra and Bali. AUSTRALIA—Royal Australian airmen attacked Japanese occupied Ra- baiil, New Britain Island, overcoming Japanese fighter planes to bomb airdromes and shipping in the harbor.

No casualties were ATLANTIC—The German high command announced that Nazi U-Boals operating in the Atlantic and off the American coast had sunk eight more ships totaling 63,000 tons. PHILIPPINES — General Douglas Mac-Arthur reported a lull in ground fighting during the past 24-hours and said Japanese planes continued to drop incendiary bombs behind the American-Philippine lines.

"We and the other United Nations are committed to the destruction of the • militarism-.' of• Japan and Germany," he said; "We are daily increasing our strength. Soon, we and not our enemies, will have the offensive; we, not they, will win the final battles; and we, not they, will make the final peace." Despite cruelly long distances involved, the president disclosed, "a large number of planes" manned by American pilots, "are now in daily contact with the enemy in the southwest Pacific." And, he said, "thou^ sands of American troops" are also in the area. The executive also said recent surveys had disclosed that the prodigiously high production goals established two months ago would be attained, and this, he repeatedly emphasized, was the key to victory. Mr. Roosevelt spoke by radio from the White House in the third major address he has made since the country entered the war. Among his millions of listeners were Washington birthday diners at about 60 Democratic party gatherings throughout the country. These are the gatherings usually held on Jackson day early in January hut postponed this year. Contributors to the party's campaign fund are invited to them and Democratic leaders predicted the dinners would more than wipe out the $600,000 deficit remaining from 1940." Discussing strategy only in broad terms, Mr. Roosevelt attributed Japanese successes to command of the air. In that, he said, the Japs had an initial advantage because their small fighter planes could be flown to the scene of combat, while ours must be crated and shipped. But, in any event, the essential strategy of a war with Japan, the strategy which military m)an had contemplated for years has not been changed by the events of the last two months, he said. It called for delaying battles and in the Philippines a retreat on lo Bataan peninsula, with America meanwhile waging a war of attrition against the Japs. And in this war of attrition, the United States and her Allies have been taking a terrific toll of the enemy. Including losses at Pearl Harbor, he said, "we have destroyed considerably more Japanese planes than they have destroyed of ourls." The president was unsparing in castigation of "rumor mongers and poison peddlers in our midst," who among other things had spread reports of losses at Pearl Harbor far beyond reality. Mr. Roosevelt said it had been "whispered or announced" that more than a thousand planes were destroyed on the ground there, that 11,000 or 12,000 men were killed, that the fleet was "all sunk or destroyed." Total casualties, he said, were 2,340 killed and 946 wounded. "Only" three combatant ships were put permanently out of commission. "Very many" of the ships of the Pacific fleet were not in the harbor at the time. He would not say just how many planes were lost because that was information of value to the enemy. President Roosevelt outlined "three high purposes for every American." Studies State Tax Problem Reduction of State Income, Sales, Taxes Considered LITTLE ROCK-(tf>)-Govemor Adkins asked his Honorary Tax Committee Tuesday to consider the ad- visibality of reducing state income sales and highway taxes in view of increased federal taxation. Outlining his views on state taxing matters to the body at its organizational meeting Adkins called on the group to make an overall study of ,,Arkansas tax structure and^to recommend any revision deemed necessary to the 1943 legislation. He said the committee should consider what effect any tax reduction might have on the state office and institutional building program. Other matters which the governor said the groups should investigate were the oyerlaping of state services arid equalizing tax assessments.

Cox, local merchant, addressed the Hope Kiwanis Club Tuesday on "Sacrifices We as Americans Must Make to Win the War." Mr. Cox stated he firmly believed that America would win the war, with the help of God, and all the American people. Stating that even Lincoln was wrong when he said 82 years ago that no other nation or army would ever drink from the Ohio river or set foot upon the mountains of Kentucky. Mr. Cox added while he did not expect it to occur it was altogether possible. Quoting Patrick Henry in saying that we should always expect the worst and therefore be prepared. He urged all to register for Civilian Defense; to save paper, tin, and other items playing an important part in national defense. Mr. Cox was introduced by Senator James H. Pilkinton, chairman of the program committee. Guests at the luncheon were Kiwanian Clyde Hendrickson of El Dorado, and Mr. Cox.

N. Martindale, chap- man of the county AAA committee. Mr. Martindale described cotton, crop insurance as the greatest opportunity the cotton farmer has ever had to take some of the gamble out of farming, improve his financial, standing, and assure himself beyond doubt of a return for his labor in Under the crop insurance program, the committee chairman explained, the <J cotton farmer may irisure his 1942 crop '™ for 50 per cent or 75 per cent, which ever he wishes, of the average yield of his farm. His policy will give him. protection against crop loss from a wide range of causes, including insect infestation, flood, drought, storm and others. The farmer who takes out crop insurance may pay his premium hi cash or cotton or have it deducted from any I parity or other payments due him *• under the farm program. It may also *p. be deducted fom his indemnity pay- $ ment if he suffers a crop loss. The .J premium rate will depend on the ~" crop-loss record of his farm. While the crop insurance program operates under the Federal Crop In surance Corporation, it is administered locally by the AAA and applications for crop insurance may be made at the AAA office, Mr. Martindale said. The last day on which applications will be received is March 16. Egypt has an area of 383,000 square miles, but, due to its lack of moistme, only 12,000 square miles arc under cultivation.
