HOPE, ARKANSAS, TUESDAY, MARCH 10, 1942 I ^_ ^_ • — (NEA)—Meons Newspopor Enterprise Ass'n PRICE 5c COF'Y' ndia Threatens to Revolt Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor -ALEX. H. WASHBURN- L 'i Around the Town Tells of Cruel 'Jap Treatment to Prisoners i > Charges Japanese With Wholesale Monstrosities in Hongkong LONDON -(P?)- Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden charged in the House of Commons Tuesday that the Japanese army in Hongkong was guilty of • ^wholesale monstrosities" in the occupied crown colony and declared the Japanese emperor and the "whole Japanese people" were to blame. Fitly Brilish officers and men were bound hand and foot and then bay. oneted to death following the capture of Hongkong. Women, both European and Asialic, were raped and murdered and one whole Chinese dlslricl was declared a Brolhel withoul exceplion for Ihe stalus of any of Ihe inhabitants, Eden declared. •: V These happenings, previously reported to the government, were not made public until il had been confirmed from reliable witnesses recently escaped from the colony. ... .!'Thejt j . v ,itestimoiiy established tjlic /fact that the Jpaane'sc army afrlfo'ng- ' Kong perpetuated against their helpless prisoners and civilinas without distinction of race or color, the same barbarities which aroused Ihe horror of civilized world at the lime of the Nanking massacre of 1937," Eden said. t j He referred to the Japanese capture of the former Chinese capital on Doc- ember 13, 1937. This substanliated accounts at that time which said a reign of terror existed for days with thousands of Avomen raped and murdered and other t-lhousands of inhabitant killed during the looting of Nanking. A Japanese statement said at the time the disorders were described as "moping operations." All survivors of Hongking garrison I were herded into a camp of wrecked 'huts without doors, windows or sanitation. The dead had to be buried in the corner of the camp. No drugs or medicine were supplied. The Capital lacks Room Office Help Also Has Difficult Time ° in Washington By JACK STINNKTT WASHINGON — It's hard lo say which Washington lacks most—office help, or room for Ihe office help i*tK live. The Civil Service Commission has lakcn steps toward meeting both shorl- ages. On Ihe one hand, for Ihc dura- lion of Ihe war il has let down some of the bars regulating appointment lo Akivil service jobs. On Ihe other, it 'as virtually suspended the stale quota system, under which portioned out among the states according to population. Suspending the state quota system means lhat while the war lasts the tflJvermncnt can draw on qualified workers who live within commuting dislance in Maryland and Virginia. The Civil Service Commission, proceeding under White House authorization, has suspended the quota system .y^ it applies to jobs which pay less ^fnan $1,440 a year to starl and higher-paid jobs which pay less than ?!,440 a year to start and higher-paid jobs which couldn't be filled otherwise. This would cover aboul 90 per cenl of the federal appointments in fteyshinglon and in the nation at large. The new rulings, of course, apply to federal employes everywhere. Here is a brief of the new temporary procedure, to go into operation March 16: .. 1. For positions for which competitive examinations usually are held, the Commission will accept as many applications as it figures there will be jobs to fill, with a little lee-way. 2.

We saw Ihis one al Miami, and voted il the best piclure in years— which was several weeks ahead of the decision of the Motion Picture Academy declaring il lo be. the best filjn of 1941. —Ssrery -once-in-a-while Ihc- weekly grind of the motion picture industry produces a story thai will bring out people who seldom go lo the theater. There are two such stories coming to the Sacnger between now and the week-end—your correspondent knows, because he has seen them once, and will sec them again. By WILLIS THORNTON They're T-0-U-G-H Americans have had some funny ideas. They would go arbund saying "The bigger they come the harder Ihey fall" al Ihe same lime Ihey were telling each other that America couldn't be licked because s-he was too big and powerful, thai man for man Ihe Japs didn'l have a chance because they were small and Americans were big guys. They would declare that America never could lose a war because America never had lost a war. Of course they didn't mention the fact thai Japan also was an undefeated champ. And they forgot Japan never had been invaded, which is more than cjn be said for the United States. These illusory ideas and pat partings have now been pretly well disabused. Let's hope we haven't lost; them too late. We should have lost them a long time ago. Writing in the current Infantry Journal, Maj. Harold Doud, U. S. A., .tells of the training lhal has made lh" Japanese such lough soldiers. Major Doud spenl six months in 193135 as a guest officer of Ihe second company, seventh regular infantry of the imperial Japanese army. That autumn the company held its "dog days' training." Quoting from Major Doud's article: "The 12-day autumn, exercises were divided into three four-day exercises . . . . One clay we marched 37 miles. Twice the troops wenl there days and two nights without sleep except what could be snatched during 10- minutc halls and brief lulls in Ihe situation. "The last four-day period was the most strenuous. We started out at 5 in the morning and marched almost continuously until 10 Ihc next morning. In that time we covered 50 miles. The same night everyone was occupied with outpost duty and patrol . . " 'Why nol lei some of Ihem sleep?' I asked the caplain. 'Oh, no,' he said. 'That is not necessary. They already know how to sleep. They need training in how lo stay awake.' " These tough litlle yellow men were even then gelling ready lo fight us fat and sassy Americans. While we were calling them soft touches, they were driving to make themselves so hard that in due time we would turn out to be the soft touches. Major Doud saw the Japs toughening up in 1934-35. The queslion can fairly be asked: has his story been told before? If not, why not? The Infantry Journal might have rendered a service lo Ihe Army and to the nation by carrying this story in I every issue of the pasl seven or eight years. The bigger they come the harder Ihey fall. tft^f Canadian factories produced more than 25,000,000 pairs of leather footwear during 1939. Spacing of Gas Wells Debated at El Dorado Oil & Gas Commission Opens Hearing on U. S.-State Regulations EL DORADO, Ark. -f/P)- Three prepared statements and a considerable amount of testimony was heard Tuesday morning by the Slate Oil & Gas Commission as it opened its hearing on the question whether'gas wells arc to be held to a 640-acre spacing in Arkansas. The hearing recessed at noon until 1:15 p. m., with indications that it would run throughout the day. Federal and state regulations arc agreed on the matter of spacing oil wells, at 40-acre intervals—but the regulations differ as to gas wells. The federal regulation calls for spacing gas wells every 640 acres, while state regulations provide for 80 or 160- acre spacing. The state commission 1 and operators have contended that on account of the formation found in the Arkansas fields it is impracticable to apply the 640-acre federal regulation. Prepared statements were filed Tuesday morning by the Arkansas Louisiana Gas company, the Standard Oil company, and the third by the Carter and Atlantic companies jointl. The statements purported to show the need for gas to supply industry particular war material industry. Also, need was shown for the uninterrupted movement of crude to the East coast. The Arkansas Louisiana Gas company told of its contract to supply gas to the aluminum and other war industries in this stale. The company said it has started a pipeline from the South Ark-dnsas gas fields, that it, is almost impossible to obtain sufficient gas elsewhere for industry within the state—unless more 'critical materials needed for war are diverted to the building of a much longer pipeline.

British Assert U.S. May Send Ships to Europe Speculate on Assignment of Admiral Stark to European Command By the Associated Press British naval circles commenting on the assignment of Admiral Harold B. Stark to London as commander of American warships in the European waters speculated Tuesday that the U. S. might be planning to increase its naval strength across the Atlantic. These quarters declared it was obvious that an officer of Admiral Starks high rank would not be sent to London unless some new development of naval importance were in the offing. Other observers saw the possibility that powerful units of the American rapidly expanding navy might be sent abroad to counter any shift in the European naval balance through the obsorption of French warships into the German fleet, thus reinforcements might also be used in protecting a British counter invasion of the continent to establish a second front against Germany as repeatedly urged by Russia.

Hitler, could launch, his herald offensive "before" the end of April or May. Front lino dispatches said the Russians were driving with new fury a- gainsl Ihc German siege lines around Leningrad and reported lhat heavy Soviet attacks were battering German fortifications between Volkhov and Lake Ladoga, which guard the flank of the Nazi siege forces easl and soulh of the old Czarist capital.

' FSA Assistance in Food Drive 'Food-for-Freedom' Loans Now Available to Farmers Families in rural towns and communities part-time farmers, and farm laborers in Hempstead county will be Riven an opporlunily by the Farn Security Administration to participate in the Food-for-Freedom program o the U. S. Department of Agriculture John V. Ferguson, FSA supervisor said Tuesday. "Since the end of last year's harvest, conditions have changed swiftly forcing many families who depend on public works for part of their income, to seek, other means of livelihood," said Mr. Ferguson. "In ordei to prevent suffering and provide the families with sufficient food and additional income, Farm Security has designed a program for financing the food production program of these families." Known as Food-for-Freedom loans, the loans will enable part-time farmers, day laborers, and rural families to produce needed vegetables, poultry and eggs, dairy products, hogs, and beef. These products are needed urgently in the war which the United Nations are waging against the Axis. "Every acre and every rural and farm family are needed to produce the food America must produce to win this war," said Mr. Ferguson. "Funds have been allocated and we are ready to take applications for Ihe loans. Our regular loan season is almost over and we will be able to handle the new Food-for-Freedom loans quickly. "Rural families wilh land farm experience, regardless of whether they are regular farmers, can start an all- out food production program now by using the services and loan assistance of Farm Security, "Mr. Ferguson said. Loans will be made for gardening equipment, seed, rent for workstock, power eqoipment, livestock shelters, fencing, machinery, feed cows heifers pigs, chickens and other production goods. Food-for-Freedom loans will not exceed $500 and will bear 5 per cent interest. They will be repayable within a year, except in those cases where long-term food programs are involved. Loans for long-term food programs will be repayable over periods ranging from three to five years. The loans will be secured by chatlel mortgages and crop liens. "Because security of tenure is im- porlanl in safeguarding production, borrowers must obtain from the owners of the land they operate a written [ease for one to five years, or for the period of the loan, or for the duration of the war," he said.

He said China was sending a military mission to Washington and also announced China and India would ex- chage diplomatic representatives. General Stilwell arrived in Chung- king March 4, on .what was announced as a "special mission" for President Roosevelt.
