Burns to Death in Fire at His Home Suspecting violence, city and county police continued to investigate the death of Dcwcy Lacefield, 35-year-old Hope negro, who burned to death at his home in the Oaklawn addition to the city early Thursday morning. The fire occurred about 1:30 a. m. .and the house was almost burned to vhe ground when the fire department was called, it was said. Investigating police said there was n possibility of violence because Lacefield's body was found in a room which did not contain a bed. How, «vcr no arrests have been made. Dr. J. H, Weaver, Hempstead coroner, examned the body but withheld his verdict pending further investigation. Death, however, resulted from burns, he indicated.

Fire Chief James Embree said the death was the first resulting inside a burning house in at least 17 years. In fact the Department has no record -Jf such a death.

How desperate is Australia's plight only the figures of area and population can tell you. For Australia is a land of 3 million square miles— the same as the continental United States —but with a population of only 7 millions, against the U. S's 131 millions. Compared with Arkansas, Australia has 5G more times the area to defend, but with only W, limes the population to defend it. It is much as if Arkansas were suddenly called upon to defend herself against attack by the combined forces of the rest of the United States.

Hitler Recalls Generals for Spring Thrust Russians, However, Continue Bloody Counter Attacks on Nazis By the Associated Press Climaxing three months of bloody retreat Adolf Hitler has abandoned his lone wolf role in guiding the destiny in Germans arms it was reported Thursday and has called back his generals to help plan the Nazi spring offensive. Berlin correspondent of the Basel (Switzerland) national Zeitung said Hitler had summoned nearly all the German officers including field Marshall Walther von Brauchitsch who was ousted or resigned after the drive against Moscow failed last December. The national Zeitung correspondent said the Nazis spring offensive might be expected soon with the Fuehrer and his generals now mapping strategy at a series of staff conferences. The question of throwing Russia's winter steam roller into reverse still remained to be solved and Thursday the German command's communi- que acknowledged that the Red armies were attacking relentlessy and that are now strung out 5,000 miles from | heavy defensive fighting is now in home, and their striking power is so progress greatly reduced that with mechanized A bulletin from Hitler's field head- help, particularly a,r power, the Aus- quarters noted continuing Russian tralmns have a good chance of sav- ; pressure on the Kerch Peninsula in intt lh**it> nr»itv»*r>\, no *T*« !„..* «..«» n «4. ! j, ~ . ,. ^-...it.jniit ,11 the Crimea as well as fierce Soviet thrusts in the Donets river sector of the Ukraine where Hie Russians are battering at the gates of Kharkov. In the north a Soviet dispatch reported-,' that Russian guerilla forces had regained control of 6,000 square miles of'territory behind the German siege lines around Leningrad and declared they were so strong that the Germans could not enter the region. Although not identified the section may be a part of the Baltic state of Estonia which the Germans overran in their drive against Leningrad. Russian appeals for the opening of a second front against the Germans were renewed Thursday in the Moscow news, now published in Kuiby- shev, with the declaration that anti- Hitler forces can and must determine the future progress of the war. From secret continental bases the German freedom radio said German troops and laborers were strengthening Netherland defenses and these i preparations show Hitler expects landing by British and American troops. Neither London or Washington indicated that any major thrust toward Germany was in prospect immediately. Establishment of a U. S. aerial base in Guatemala was disclosed in a dispatch from the capital of that central American republic, supplementing Panama Canal defense bombers laden with high explosives which range ceasely over the Pacific and Caribbean. of the white man in the Orient. And for us, the Australian adventure is given our full support because it is from the Land Down Under that tomorrow's defensive against the Japanese empire must be launched. By WILLIS THORNTON Point of View This column is turned over today to Lieut. Gen. Ben Leai, Jr., commander of the second army of the United States of America. The other day in Cleveland, General Lear spoke some truths every American should hear . . About criticizing our allies: "Let us be thankful that the great bastion, the United Kingdom, has stood. Let us be thankful for those magnificent Russian armies that refused to acknowledge defeat and came back fighting in a campaign that has the admiration of every soldier. Let us be thankful for the tenacity and endurance of the Chinese. "Criticism of our allies in their hours of trial is not only destructive of a sense of proportion and appreciation of their great losses, but it leads to the question: Who wants md criticize our al- wants to prepare us by suspicion and hatred so that we will lose the peace after we have paid the awful price that will be exacted to win the war? "Let us be loyal. Let us be worthy of others being loyal to us." About labor disputes; "I do not appreciate—nor does any soldier—the remarks we sometimes read when there is a strike: "Make U. S. General Heads Two Chinese Armies WASHINGTON — (ff>)— The War Department announced Thursday that Lt. Gen, Joseph W. Stilwell of the U. S. Army had been put in command of the Fifth and Sixth Chinese armies operating with British forces defending Burma against the Jap-' ancse. • Hope to Play 11 Grid Games Hot Springs, ?

Improve Cotton Australian Is Appointed to British Cabinet Richard Casey Is Churchill's j Choice as Minister ,• of State 1 LONDON -(/P)- Britain smashed all precedence Thursday by choosing Richard Casey, Australian Minister to Washington, as minister of state to •represent the war cabinet in the Middle East. :,- The announcement that for the first .time in Empire history a dominion statesman is to become a member of the home government and intrusted with a vital post was made by Prime Minister Churchill in the House of Commons and won prompt Welcome. Churchill gave no explanation for the surprising move, a recognition of Australia's own critical role in the war, but sections of the British press expressed alarm over Australia's recent tendency to carry her troubles to Washington rather than to London. The spokesman said Casey would conclude his affairs at Washington including conferences with recently arrived Australian representatives, then come to London before going to Cairo There his job will be one of coordinating all the Middle East War :efforts aside from actual military operations. Although the dominions are called pn to make contributions of men and jmaterials and consulted on the conduct of the war the cabinet of the E. itish heretofore has been for all practical purposes, supreme.

U.S. to Pay Premiums Through AAA Program The cotton farmer will be well paid this i year if he responds to Uncle Sam's call for increased staple lengths and better grades, according to E. N. Martindale, chairman of the Hempstead County Triple-A committee. The Department of Agriculture is offering special premiums for increases in both grade and staple. An example of how the new price premiums will operate can be seen by comparing the value of two bales of strict middling, one of 1-1/lG-inch and the other 1-3/16. The latter bale will be worth $39 more on loan than the bale of shorter staple. But if the bale of 1-3/16 staple is only of strict low middling quality, it will be worth only ?17 more than the bale of I'-l/lG strict middling. This should encourage all cotton (Continued on Page Five) work or fight." I don't want to discuss strikes. But I do want tc> say this on behalf of the soldierman: The individual who is unwilling to work we don't want picked up and sent to us to join combat troops. He isn't good enough. We don't want his spirit. And we don't want his presence . , . "No, if you want to discipline and make useful those that have refused to work faithfully with the team, let labor batalions be formed for them. Let such men be given the job of building the highway to Alaska, of being put to work in Labrador, in Greenland. Draft them, yes; but our society of men being trained to fight and die for this republic is not a reform school. Just as we accept none but the physically fit, so we want none but the morally worthy." About civilians' roles: "Your effective organization, that involves the complete civilian effort, is what will do more than any amount of cheering, entertaining and gift giving to give confidence to the soldier that the great American team is functioning. When this soldier sees that every household is organized against waste, is following a plan of conservation, is definitely contributing more than money to tile war effort, then he will have greater pride and confidence in the unity of our war effort." About winning the war: "Your sons are being made into fighters. Their instruction may be varied and requires professional skill, but their mission is simple—to destroy the enemy, on land, on the seas and in the air. "Fighters will win.

"During the past year I have been handicapped, to some extent, on account of my health, but with the help of God and good doctors I am back on my feet again, and looking after the duties of my office. However, during my misfortune, I endeavored to see that my office was not neglected. Every paper or process that has been placed in our hands has been promptly served; the tax records will show that the taxes have been collected and the money accounted for; the court records will show that in all criminal cases where me or my deputies have acted all fines and costs were collected and accounted for. Only recently, and at the solicitation of friends did I decide to enter this campaign, as everyone knows I am not a politician and have not at any time tried to use my office for political purposes.

It is only playing the game of politics to stay in office. Today as never before, the public demands efficiency and there is nothing tends toward efficiency so much as experience, therefore, I feel that the years of effort, hard work and study that I have given to the duties of a peace officer have qualified me to handle the office in an efficient manner.

"CLARENCE E. BAKER" Colleges Ask to Aid War Effort . JStimson Also Approves Pre- Induction Training WASHINGTON -(&)- Secretary Stimson gave War Department approval Thursday to pre-induction training of men in colleges and local communities but stressed that additional military equipment and instructors could not be spared. The War Secretary announced at the same time an army undertaking to give enlisted men an opportunity to carry on correspondent courses through an army institute at Madison, Wisconsin. In a letter to President Charles Seymour of Yale University, released at a press conference, he advised that colleges could help the war effort by helping develop leadership of students and by technical training. In local civilian communities Stimson advised that the War Department favored voluntary training of men prior to their induction into the armed forces but could not accept its control or operations.

Rationing of Gas to Begin Coupon System for East, Northwest Announced WASHINGTON — (/P)— Petroleum Coordinator Ickes announced Thursday j rigid gasoline coupon rationing system would be instituted in the east and the Pacific northwest as soon as cards can be printed—which he estimated would be within six weeks. The card rationing would surplant the curtailment program instituted over the same area today by'reduction of 20 per cent in supplies of gasoline delivered to service stations. Ickes said he could not say now whether the more rigid system would be severier than the present one-fifth cut in consumption, but expressed hope that the card system might be instituted quickly because of increasing urgency in the area because of the sinking of ships and war deversion of tanker ships. Operations o- approximately 100,000 services stations in the area are limited to a 12-hour day, 6 days per week. L.
