WASHBURN- .Around the Town 'Reds Say Spring .Offensive to Be All Russian 3! Believe Nazis Are Worn Out in Fall Drive, ft Winter Counters MOSCOW-m-Rcd Star, voice of Uie Soviet army, declared Friday that the offensive this spring would be Russian, not German and described the Nazi military machine as worn woul from its cosily fall drive and Ihc battering it has received this winter. Dispatches from the front said that the Germans were trying desperately to hold on, counter attacking repeatedly and at a heavy cost but that the red army still pushed steadily, if slow- «,ly,- lo Ihe west. Reports from the southern front said Marshal Semeon Timoshenko's big Donets basin offensive inslead of being halted by the counter attacks had wiped out two Strong points and swept Q on mlo two unidentified towns where gcrmnn bodies littered the streets after a fierce fight. Elsewhere on the southern front Russian artillery was said to have broken up a counter-attack. Don't bother writing me thai YOU heard geese go over earlier. I'm only Inlking aboul when I Heard Ihem.

Americans generally delight in leaning back in an easy chair, barber shop chair or just any convenient chair and listening to the advice and argument of whomever happens to be indulging in that ood old custom of sounding off. And it's a very fine thing in time of peace. But the time has arrived —and it's right now—when we all must lean forward, cast a fishy eye at our whispering informant or windy talker, and ask ourselves a question. Is he, or quite possibly she, pulling my leg, knowingly or unknowingly for the benefit of Adolf, Benitor or Lieut. Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita? As all school children know by now Hitler's cardinal rule is "Divide and Conquer." And as all Czechs, French Dutch and Norwegians know it is one of the smartest and most devilish politico-military weapons of all time. Why? Because it works Edmond Taylor, noted student of press conference to go into the on ^f putting a filing on wages as an anti-inflation step but he did disclose that the whole problem was under consideration. Whether any progress was being made on controlling inflation Mr. Roosevelt said: "In some ways yes and in some ways no." He placed the action of the house in voting to ban sales of government owned surplus products at below parity prices in the catagory of those things on what he termed the 10 side. _ Changing the subject he said that this is a war and politics is out." He said his remarks applied to congress as well as the press. "We read too much politics in the papers these days and these articles talk in terms of the past," he commented. To a question asked whether his remarks were also of the cabinet he said that he found little political indications in any action by cabinet members. He said whenever he say any such implications he would step on it with both feet. WASHINGTON -(/P)_ By-partisan efforts to extend hours of the working week and to take up legislation on overtime wej;e pressed in the senate Friday. ' • '•' " ••- •• Senator Lee (D. Okla.) asked Chairman Nelson of the War Production Board to recommend legislation on overtime and ways of putting more shifts on the job while Senator Reed (R. Kan.) urged early action on measure to increase the work weeks from 40 to 48 hours before extra pay is allowed. The law now provides for time and a half for work over 40 hours. ^^^^^^^_ ^^H ^^- — Taking Form —-——— _— ^^^^ Roosevelt May Tanker Reaches Port for RebuiMno If t •*• r . -/ Veto Big Farm Supply Measure Objects to Disposal of Government Stocks at Less Than Parity WASHWGTON-(/P)-High administration sources Friday said that President Roosevelt was considering veto of the $695,000,000 farm supply bill because it bands disposal of government controlled stocks of farm products at less than parity. The president was beaten both in the senate and house on his pleas that the prohibitions bo eliminated to help prevent a further drive in the cost of living. He was reported to believe that only by veto could he win his point. The senate recently passed and sent lo tlie house a simple bill containing the band. The house, which is still considering the bill, has'refused to remove a clause to prohibit the commodity credit corporation from using administrative funds in connection with its sale below parity. f Most reptiles lay their eggs on land, while most amphibians lay theirs in water. Cranium Crackers 4' River Lore Rivers played an important part in the development of the United Stales so you should nol o around on any of these mental sandbars. j 1.

II worked in France and other countries and it can work here. The Nazis know they must knock out the United States and the quickest way to do that is to set us snarling and snapping at each other . Oh, you won't get any letlers from Doctor GoebbeLs telling you President Roosevelt is crazy, or that we arc obviously headed for dictatorship or that the Jews and Communists plan to chop the hands off every third baby boy. You will get something much slicker and much harder to combat. There are and will be some of those rawer types for the lunatic fringe, but chiefly they will be in such forms as these: We are dupes of British imperialists. Our entire Pacific fleet wus destroyed at Pearl Harbor. The Army had to shoot 400 strikers in a Detroit tank faclory. Jap saboteurs have destroyed large sections of San Francisco. Six troop transports, with 10,000 American soldiers on each have been sunk. The Republicans are blocking the war effort. The Democrats are blocking the war effort. Jesse James, Peter the Rabbit, the no-girdles-for-girls rule are messing things up. In short, things have gone to hell. We can't win. There's no use trying. We're lost up to now and besides Hitler has no designs on America. He just wants all the Germans of Europe joined in one big happy family. Those are the tilings you have heard and will hear. Those are the things axis agents spread—and the alleys and rate holes are infested with them. Good Americans hear them. They tell other good Americans. Soon the vicious lie assumes j the proportions of a national scandal and everybody is talking about it. That wrecks morale, wrecks the war efforl and can wreck America. It's all the simple application of "Divide Five Bicycles Stolen in Hope One Recovered, Search for Others Continues Police announced Friday that five bicycles had been stolen in Hope the past five nighls and warned owners to be careful where they left their bikes. th e time | Of Iho five stolen only one, owned tne slime of Nazi by Jess Merchant and stolen last Sunday, has been recovered.

RAF Over Paris but Drop No Bombs RAF Blasts Big Nazi Battleship Installations* at Kiel Naval Base Set Afire LONDON-W-The RAF bombed the 26jOOO-ton German battleship Gneisenau and set naval installations on fire at the Kiel base in'continua- tion of Thursday night of the "great spring air offensive" begun last week-end. The air ministry said Friday that improved flying conditions enabled a medium force of four and two on- gined bombers to strike at northwestern Germany. The loss of 8 RAF planes during (lie latest raid on Kiel was attributed by air ministry sources to strong German anti-aSroraitt defenses the Kiel base. ringing German light fighters engaged the British planes during the attack. At Berlin the Nazi high command announced that ritish bombers attacked Kiel, site of a big German naval base during the night, causing some casualties. /ft-Thc RAF was over the iaris area again Friday but there were no immediate reports that bombs were dropped.

Deserters Kill FBI Agent Another Wounded in Shooting Scrape in Virginia ABINGTON, Va. -(/P)_ Two army deserters who threw shots and killed one FBI agent and wounded another seriously were captured in an abandoned-house-on the-Cuttklf ts-cf this city Friday afternoon. More than a hundred federal, state and local officers surrounded the house and a number of shots exchanged. The fugative pair were captured only a few hours after an agent who sought to arrest them fell dead and his. companion wounded under a hail of pistol fire which began in an all-night cafe. Agent Hubert J. Treacy, Jr., 28 was shot to death and Charles L.. Tignor, 29, was wounded five times. They were attempting to arrest two soldiers from Ft. Oglethorp, Ga. The soldiers who blazed away as icon as the agents identified themselves had been sought since Thursday when they stole a supply of pistols and ammunition from the fort, kidnapped a tax driver and escaped into Tennessee.
