Tough Men Get Tough Metal Tungsten Is Vital Metal in War • Production- wide World Features STIBNITE, Idaho-It Stibnito looks like a ghost town to a tenderfoor it's because all the miners are down in the earth getting out tungsten. You ma ynot know it, stranger, but this mountain village away up in the everlasting hills of Idaho is aiming to produce one-fourth of the nation's requirements of that vital defense metal by June. It takes hard men to produce hard metal so tough it's used for cutting tools, armor plate, guns and projectiles. These men at Stibnito are so hard they're hauling out ore concentrate over a back-breaking road that men of weaker fiber said couldn't be kept open. The snow is four feet deep on the level, if you can find any level spot. Two men froze to death in the area this winter. Before the Bradley Mining Co., a San Francisco concern, got its winter operations underway the skeptics said a new road would have to be built, a road that would cost $1,000,000. It's 80 miles from Stibnite to the railroad at Cascade, in Idaho's mountainous and misnamed Valley country that's still away up in the air. About 30 tons of metal comes out over that 80 miles every day. By June the company expects to double its output, have 250 or 300 men working instead of 150 and get out 200,000 units of tungsten concentrate per month. That's about 240,000 pounds of tungsten ore. The workings produce antimony GuH of Finland MARCH 22 1942 Hitler escaped Napoleon's fate holding key points instead of solid line through winter; Russians regained about 1/5 of territory lost uermans made biggest gains, coming within 200 mi. of Moscow, capturing half of Ukraine DnicproptJro Key Points Held by Nazis Through Winter Our Doily Bread (Continued From Page One) sacked it." They had no smart writers in ancient days to coin alibi words like "supermen"— and history was written hard and true, * * * How could Germany, disarmed and brbke, rise to power in a few years under Hitler? A friend of mine quoted Eddie Rickenbacker, American World War ace who is now president of Eastern Airlines, as. saying: "Any nation can rise Whose people arc Willing to work 70 hours a week," But Eddie Rickenbacker was only paraphrasing the idea behind America herself. Our forefathers started with .nothing. They built the greatest nation on earth. But today We are related— at least we Were related until events in Europe scared the daylights out of us. Let us study the tragedy of France and resolve to make it an object lesson for our own republic. Our pioneer days are behind us. And that is our great danger. : For it was Benjnmin Franklin who said: "It is easier to build two chimneys than to keep one in fuel." It is not so exciting running a house after it is built. But if we don't run it, keep it defended, keep its bills paid — then we can look at France and know what will happen to ourselves. By WILLIS THORNTON India and the War When Columbus sailed away from Genoa that memorable day in three oversized lifeboats, he sailed in search of India, a mysterious land of fabulous wealth. The kings and queens _ Up the Enemy's Troops . of Europe needed that wealth to keep their wars going and their treasury SAENGER NOW "TO BE OR NOT TO BE rr TUESDAY ONLY BETTE DAVIS in rr VICTORY At the end of nine months of war with Russia, the last three spent on the defensive, Germany still holds potential jumping oft points for attack along a line from Finland to the Crimea.

Gold and silver are there, also, but those ordinarily'precious .metals aren't so important in war time. Slibnite is no grass-root, get-rich-and-get-out diggings. Its more ardent backers say there is enough ore blocked out to keep the trucks hauling ore until Landmark Summit is worn down to a button. And that's more than a mile high, mister. , In Alaska both pay and living costs aveage somewhat higher than in the United Slates. Warning Issued (Continued From Page One) scnger cars. "It is not hard to see," he said, "that with such a small allotment of tires, which is set up in Washington and over which we have no control, there willj be many people listed in the eligible class who will not be able to be serviced in this program. "We are asking all citizens in the county to help us by securing second- departments from complete bankruptcy. Columbus missed India but, „.known to him, found something much better. All the adventuresome gallants who sought a northwest passage Japs captured on Bataan are some five inches smaller and 18 pounds lighter than average U. S. draftee. Even with 10 times as many on their side, the little yellow men have failed to seize the Philippine stronghold from sturdy American defenders; more than anything that has happened. The wealth, manpower and strategic position of India also would be lost. Last and hardly least, if India is hand tires (over which we have no control) and by conserving the rubber which they now have so that they will not make the rationing job doubly hard by having to be told "no!" when we do not have the tires. "We are now confronted with the forthcoming fruit and vegetable seasons, the transportation of defense workers and many other activities. We arc aware that a great many of these services are handled with the pick-up truck. However, with such a small allotment of tires to our County Board it is going to bo a physi- through North America also missed India, but will Hitler and Hirohito miss it? Anyone knowing the answer can go a long way toward forecasting the outcome of the war. With the Japanese driving in from Burma and Germany expected to slash down from the Middle East upon "the brightest jewel in the British Empire," the fate of India means more to the cause of the Nnitccl Nations than many of the "everything-will-come-out-all- right" boys care to admit. Should Hitler and the Japanese join forces in India, it would unite these two strong foes for the first time in a physical military way, and the un- splitting of that union would be long and costly and bloody. The union would cut apart the forces of the British Empire and endanger China lost, would we have much of an argu- _ ment with which to keep the Arabs, Africans, and Polynesians who are on our side still on our side?

KINGS ROW PAWN CHAPTER XXXV t'pEYTON, you're not worth the x shot it would take to kill you, but — I'll speak to Drake." "Gee! In a little while I ought to be able to clear enough to take care of that debt to the St. George estate — if I'm not found out in the meantime. But the thing that scares me — " "What?" "Just lately Fulmer Green has had something to do with the St. George properties. He's got an eye on the real estate business around here, too. He may know something." "Heaven pity you if he gets on your trail. I'll see what Drake can do to help you out financially right away." "This means a lot, Parris." Peyton stood up. "Now I want to tell you something about that attack in the Chronicle." "All right, go on." "Fulmer Green was behind it. He had some advance information about the proposal to buy, and he tried to get an option on the place himself. Then he found out you and Drake owned it." "I see." Parris spoke evenly, but he was turning cold inside. "He really owns a controlling interest in the Chronicle but nobody knows it. He backed Wardlaw so he'd have a paper behind his political career." "Thanks, Peyton. You ought to be a detective." After Peyton had gone, Parris called Fulmer Green. "That you, Fulmer? Parris Mitchell. I want to talk to you right away — no, I won't come over there. No! Tomorrow won't do. Be here at the hospital in half an hour. Don't make it longer." * * * PEYTON walked blindly down the long avenue from the mam building of the hospital to its tall gates. He was terribly confused. Reaching his office, he switched on the light and sat down at his desk, confidence returning with familiar surroundings. His glance fell on a long envelope. It was a special delivery letter, mailed in Kings Row that afternoon. Peyton read the three short paragraphs at a glance, knowing what they said almost without reading them. This finished him. Too late for Parris to help. Or Drake . . . GREEN sat opposite Parris. His face was wet with perspiration. "I don't know where you got all this, unless it was from that ^stinking Peyton Graves, but if you think you can scare me—" Fulmer tried to laugh, but his month was dry. "Fulmer, The Evening Chronicle will publish a full retraction of that accusation of last year. I'll furnish you with the correct data. The retraction won't be editorial. It will be over your signature." "I won't do it. You're a fool, Parris Mitchell." "Would you rather Miles Jackson published it in his paper?" Fulmer was red as fire, but he said nothing for a moment. "All right, but—" The telephone rang; its faint tinkle contrasted with the tense atmosphere of the room. Parris answered. "Hello. . . . Yes. . . . What? . . . When? ... I see. .. . Yes, I'll come on down. . . . Oh, a note ... to me? . . . All right, I'll be along in five minutes." He replaced the receiver. "Peyton Graves shot himself a few minutes ago." Fulmer's eyes stretched wide. "Did you have anything to do with this?" "I haven't done anything to Peyte Graves." "I hope you are telling the truth. Come on, you're going with me." * * * pARRIS spent much of his free •*• time with Drake and Randy, who were busied with their purchase and development of the Crescent Hill properties. Drake's mind, Parris felt, had completely recovered from old wounds. Even more often he saw the Sandors. He had begun to feel that the comfortable, mellow old house was home again. Often Mr. Sandor spoke of his work. "I'm a practical horticulturist. Now your scientists—these wizards—I do not do anything like that. First of all, that is not my job." "What is your job, exactly?" "To improve the common breed." Parris considered this, and repeated the phrase slowly. "To— improve—the—common—breed." "Yes. Exactly." "To improve the common breed!" Parris said the words again, rather dreamily. Elise studied his face. "It would be good if somebody would do this for human beings." "I was thinking just that." Sometimes Parris plodded about the familiar fields and slopes with Sandor. Sometimes they talked, but more often these excursions were silent. Parris dreamed, or remembered. He began to gain a perspective he had not had. Once in a while Parris talked about his grandmother to Elise as they walked across the hills, and through the yellow autumn fields. He watched her as she talked. The half-stately phrases of. her careful English had a special charm. It reminded him of his grandmother's speech. "Dr. Mitchell, I must ask you a question." "All right." "The first time you came here, when you came up on the terrace, you asked me if my name was Renee, Why did you think that might be my name?" "I think I was startled by the way you looked." "Like someone named Renee?" "I was a small boy. She lived on the place—in the overseer's house." "What became of her?" A look, like a sudden shadow, crossed his face. Elise had seen the expression before. "It was long ago." The shadow lay on his face again, and Elise said no more. They climbed a barbed-wire fence, and Elise tore her skirt. He had helped her over the fence, and still held her hand. * * * HTHAT winter Parris set about organizing his notes and his published articles into a book. The work proved more difficult than he had expected, and as a consequence he saw very little of Randy and Drake or of the Sandors. He planned to go to Vienna in May for final consultation with the board of editors. One evening Randy called him rather late. "I want to see you, Parris. Could you come down?" Randy met him at the corner. "Drake's sick, Parris." "What's wrong?" "He's in a great deal of pain. In his hip. He's been complaining some all winter. But I thought it was fatigue. He stayed propped up too long at a time. That's what Dr. McNeill thought, too." "Does Drake—did he tell Drake anything?" • "No. But he left a sedative. Drake's easier just now." Parris found Drake half asleep, but tossing restlessly. His interview with Dr. McNeill confirmed his fears. "Of course, Dr. Mitchell, there must be a consultation. But I'm fairly sure." "It's not—?" Paris choked a little and cleared his throat. Dr. McNeill sensed the question. "An operation would be useless." "How long?" Dr. McNeill shrugged doubtfully. "I don't give him more than six months—maybe less." (To Be Concluded) Oil and Gas (Continued From Page One) O. &G. Lease: 10 yr term, book R-7, page 453, dated 3-4-42, recorded 3-20-42. J. B.

Such exhortations don't mean much, however, if you continue Hying the white flag. This is no plea for the United States to land an expeditionary force in the land of Gandhi, the msharapas and the untouchables. We are far too busy in other corners, and the British and the Indians should by now, after Singapore and Hong Kong, realize this battle won't be won on the polo fields of Calcutta or the fashionable cocktail lounges of Bombay. The point is that the conquest of India by the enemy would rate in many ways as the greatest disaster of the war for the United. Nations. Some might welcome this dismemberment of the British Empire, but they woulc be cheering for the outfit all set to swat us, come the right day. Hope Boy Completes CAA Flying Course J. T.
