By WILLIS THORNTON No Sacrifice Too Great — But! This is no time for niggling over mailers of definition. President Roosevelt says he does not find the American people complacent or apathetic, toward our war effort. Let's concede that by Ins definitions of the adjectives Mr. Roosevelt is correct Let's even accept the definitions. So what? So the public's attitude toward the war effort still leaves too much to be desired. A newspaperman after wandering through almost half of the Umled Slates since Pearl Harbor, and talking with folks of just about every sort, has had certain conclusions forced upon him as to Ihe publics frame of mind. For whatever they may bo worth, here they are- Most of our people arc demanding that this nation shall g ivo anc | wor £ and suffer to the limit of the other fellows capacity for endurance On the whole, our people believe that no sacrifice can be loo great to defeat the axis, as long as it does not interfere with personal comfort ana pleasure. We concede thai, with the Far East cut off, there isn't rubber enough fo civilian use after military need ha been supplied. But each feels thai he has a peculiar need which, in his owi instance, calls for an exception The same is true of most of Ihe majoi shortages. The West Coast has been all upset about the menace created by huge Japanese populations living and working close lo vilal war plants. It demanded that they be removed. But when Washington sought a new locale lor the enemy aliens, communities reported in Stockholm dispatches to be making hasty preparations for retreat from Kharkov with the cily in flames as Nazi demolishion squads blasted military stores and oil plies. Against this picture of a major new reverse for German arms Hitler's field headquarters said that Russian troops driving into the Donets river Basin east of Kharkov had been thrown back after new attacks and suffered heavy casualties. Soviet dispatches Thursday said the Germans had slain 30,000 civilians in Kharkov bul there was no direct word from Moscow on Ihe progress on military operations against the hie steel center of 833,000 population which the Germans captured last October 24 Unofficial reports on Wednesday said grcnt fires were burning in the city and it was obvious that the Germans whole upper Donets lines to a point of collapse. London reports said 500,000 German are sagging President Says Might Be Labor Shortage in Fall Reporters Speculate That New Draft Order Might Be to Recruit Labor WASHINGTON - (/P) _ President Roosevelt suggested Friday a possibility that there might be some .shortage of labor for war production bv next fall. ' J He told a press conference th.it un- lm that time there probably would be enough workmen for the task assigned. But he said plans were not yet ready or a systematic allocation of labor to war industry under the moboliza- tion program. Reporters speculated that the new draft registration orders for older nen between the ages of 44 and 65 p egister on April 27 might be for he purpose of listing all persons avail- ble. Mr. Roosevelt said, however, he did lot know how they might fit into war •Jans. Land Down Under on Eve of Invas ion troops were believed based Kharkov area.

Both Green and Phillip Murray of the CIO told a senate sub-committee that labor was wholeheartedly behind 120 miles south of Leningrad.

Labor unions were among the earliest and loudest in expressing their haired for Ihe Hitler-Mussolini brand of totalitarianism, and in promising their all to help preserve democracy But wnen the showdown is here, double pay for Sundays, jurisdictional authority, ideological considerations seem mroe important than planes. Capital appreciates that the American system is doomed unless we defeat the axis. Yet the unwritten books are filled with specific instances in which industries have been and still are delaying all-out production, because they fear their investments may be rendered obsolete by new processes and new sources of supply. The list could be extended arid par- Kharkov isi~identified "as' the ne\ headquarters of Field Marshal Gen oral von Bock who was transfer™ from the central to the southern fron by Hitler two-months ago.

Luck, Cox-Cassidy employe, told police early Friday that he was knocked over the head and robbed about 8:30 Thursday night near the Gunter Lumber yards. Luck said he was leaving his work for home when an unidentified person hit him over the head, knocking him unconscious. When he came loo he discovered he had been robbed of about $15.

The Guatemala government has sent 115 Germans considered dangerous to the United States for internment but many more remain. Some quarters estimated there still was 5,000 Germans in the country and complete .surveillance of the group is a large problem. Reliable quarters said that in this group is Anita Raeder de Diestel daughter of Grand Admiral Erich Haeder, commander in chief of th German navy, who is serving as care taker of the deserted German legation and apparently mingling with othe Germans in the country.
