H. WASHBURN- Save the Grocery Sacks More of Newsprint Than of Kraft Jap Propaganda Machine Runs True fo Form Soys MacArthur Deserted Philippines When Going ••" Got Tough (Editor Note-President Roosevelt warned Tuesday that Axis shortwave propagandists would try to make capital of General Douglas MacArthur's j./ansfer to Australia by picturing it as abandonment of the Philippincs- the following is the first Japanc reaction to the transfer.) TOKYO—(/P)—Domei, Japanese news agency, circulated this dispatch Wed- "Observers commenting upon General MacArthur's abandoning his own forces and fleeing to Australia, declared his flight is fatally similar to the flights of Australian Major General Sir Archibald P. Wavel, from •Singapore and the Netherlands East Indies which immediately fell • into Japanese hands. "This abandonment of a sinking ship seems to characterize commands of the Allies who flee from post to 'the consequences. ' "Pointing out the imports nee of a commander present to inspire fighting these quarters expressed the opinion that with "cowardness shown repeatedly by Allied generals it is no Wonder that Allied forces are lacking in the will to fight. "Further commenting on the reported arrival of former high commissioner Francis Sayre in Honolulu "A woman calls to suggest that housewives save the big sacks they | got at grocery stores. Then, each • time a housewife goes to the grocery store she could take along a used sack, using it again and again unail it wears out. The idea is to save kraft paper, which is scarce. If you don't want to re-use your sacks, save them anyway and give them to any of the agencies collecting waste material." The storekeepers know how kraffc (brown wrapping paper, sacks, etc) has gone up in price, and a real scarcity in this kind of paper is near. Newsprint, the coarse white paper on which newspapers are printed, is relatively more plentiful, for the reason that a single basic sheet of uniform thickness and weight, varying only in the widths into which the finished rolls are cut, serves all newspapers. But kraft paper is made in many thicknesses—too many, in fact. A reduction in the number of kinds of kraft paper manufactured should increase the total amount available— and this standardization process is underway now. Meanwhile it behooves all users of kraft paper to conserve it as much as possible. From the newspaper'standpoint the paper supply situation is better than the price question. Newsprint from Norway that formerly cost Hope Star 540 n ton now costs ?54 a ton, manufactured in Lufkin, Texas, and there is a prospect of the price going to ?59 a ton this spring. • But price is less a consideration today than the question of getting a sup- On this score the newspapers feel tfe y , .?f P in , a relatively g 9 od - position to argue with the government-for if there is to be any rationing of newsprint it will have to begin with 'the bureaucrats in Washington who are wasting what must be thousands of tons of paper annually in mailing out press releases that few print and nobody reads.

" . a thousand government bureaus, attempting to duplicate the work of the press, must by comparison be judged as wasteful, and must bo discontinued if a paper shortage ever develops to the point that the necessary supply for the newspapers of America is threatened.

British Wing in Burma Thrown Back 30 Miles Japanese Thrust Against Bataan Forces Is Repulsed With Losses NEW DELHI-(/IV-The British left wing m Burma has drawn back about 30 miles, it was disclosed Wednesday in a communique which announced that "our forward troops arc in action with strong enemy forces suoth of Knnyutkwin.

And if ever taxpayers should insist upon their elected servants i hearing off all unnecessary gove.-n- mr-nt lace and finery it is right now In greater numbers than ever before, Americans filed their federal income taxes this month and were darn happy about it. They will pay until it hurts and then pay some more because they know every such dollar hastens the day. In view of the certain rise in federal taxes, there must be sweet music in the ears of citizens who foot the cost of government in the states of California, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan and New York And the sooner officials of other states and of many counties and mun- iciplaities join in the song, the bet- wTlMike ai it d Ml ' S< J ° hn Q- Taxpayor The New York legislature voted to slash the state income tax rate 25 per cent. You heard it correctly 25 per cent, one of the sharpest levy cuts in history. Gov. Herbert H. Lehman is expected to make it law Furthermore, the same day the legislature reduced expenditures almost ten million dollars by abolishing or curtailing activities which are luxuries in time of war.
