MUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, March 15, ays Prussian Army Musf Be Completely Destroyed cv a it Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MaeKENZIE Hitler's reported nervous col- 1 lapse, whether it proves to be true or just another bit of wishful thinking about this arch-enemy of civilization, is a pointed reminder of one of the latest of the Allied problems which now are occupying so much attention in Washington and London — the extermination 'of the cause of German militaristic aggression. British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, who is in Washington ( . to discuss cooperation among the United Nations, referred to this task of up - rooting at a press conference during the week-end. Said he: V "We must make sure that Germany and Japan Italy's problem is not of the same size but are never able to start this business again..That is the fundamental job of our, statesmanship." Of course Japan must be sterilized as well as the Reich, but the situation in both countries is basically similar, so let's devote this column to the Germans. One's first reaction to the Hitler report is the gratifying hope that it's true —oh, so true! — and that he never : recovers. The effect on the morale of his country undoubtedly would be devastating. Germany's whole war effort is built about his amazing leadership which diabolical though it is, still represents one of the most powerful of history. Having studied Hitler at close range in Germany, I believe that he and Naziism are one and the same thing. He is the soul of this barbarcism, and when he goes the dictatorship won't long survive. .We mustn't forget that the fanatical young Nazis regard the fuehrer not only as their political chief but actually as a Messiah. This pseudo - spiritual leadership gives him a hold which neither Crown Prince Goering nor any other, Nazi possesses. However, while the collapse of Hitler might vastly hasten the end of the war. We shall make a terrible mistake if we think we shall have eliminated German militarism when we have hanged him and his captains or otherwise disposed of them. The thing goes deeper than Nazism, as becomes clear whe Market Report ST. LOUIS LIVESTOCK National Stockyards, 111., March 15 — (/P)— (U. S. Dept.

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicgao, March 15 —(#•)— Hedge selling and large receipts at lead- ing markets depressed wheat prices about a cent today, deliveries falling to new low ground for more than two weeks. Other, grains weakened in sympathy with easiness in the bread cereal. More favorable weather reports over the week-end from producing areas were further weakening influences. Wheat closed 3-4—1 1-8 lower, May $1.43 3-4—5-8, July $1.44 1-4— 1-8, corn was unchanged at ceilings, May $1.01, oats were 1-8 lower to 1-8 higher and rye dropped 5-8—1 cent. Cash wheat no sales.

It has been the arrogant, swaggering, bullying cause of trouble ever since that kingdom, under Frederick the Great, emerged in 1763 from the seven years war with Austria as a first class military power. Prussian militarists now, as for generations past, dominate the German military machine. It happens that the Prussian chiefs are in process of being hoist by their own petards. Always looking for a chance to conquer the world, they decided to profit by Hitler's amazing hold on the people of Germany, and his lifelong hope to see Europe ruled by the Prussians, whom he considers the master-race. So the militarists gave the abnormal-minded fuehrer their support, and once having grasped the live wire they find it difficult to let go. They are bound to stancf by his waning fortunes until the last hope is dead — and then we are likely to see them take to cover. But wini,ing the war, anl eliminating Hitler and fiitlerism, won't kill militarism in Germany or, likely to see them take to cover. But winning the war, and elimi- we stop to think that Hitler never j nating Hitler and Hitlerism, won't I kill militarism in Germany or, more accurately, in Prussia. Prus- sianism isn't dependent on an individual, as Nazism. It's an institution. The Prussian miltiary leadership must be destroyed. How? Well, Jiat's up the Allied council, but the Prussian chiefs must in some way or other be taken out of circulation. Their military machine will lave to be so thoroughly smashed that there will be no fighting forces or weapons of any description left for use on land, at sea or in the air. Then German — and Japan — will have to be occupied by Allied troops for many years, to give time a chance to rear a new generation that wants peace. One useful thing we have learned from Hitler is that the character of a na- ton can be changed over-night, so to speak, by intensive cultivation of the young mind. NEW YORK STOCKS New York, March 15 — <&)— Recently buoyant low - priced rail stocks fell sharply in today's market but assorted issues elsewhere managed to edge into new high ground for the year or longer. The break in the "penny" transportation equities came in the wake of the Supreme Court decision in the St. Paul case which upheld the interstate commerce cora- mssion ruling that share woners could not participate in the road's reorganization. Blocks running to 5,000 shares of carriers being revamped or on the borderline crowded the ticker tape for a while and losses of more than 50 per cent from Saturday's quotations were widespread. Unsecured bonds of these railways also weakened but secured loans tilted forward. Trends generally were mixed from the start and continued cloudy near the close. Dealings, fast for a time, slackened in the final hour. Transfers were around 1,400,000 shares.

Mass Is Said Over Grave of Chaplain By RUTH COWAN Fedala, French Morocco, March 13 (IP)— Archbishop Francis J. Spellman of New York said mass today at plain, hastily-built wooden altar in a small French cemetery over Ihc grave of the first American chaplain killed in the Second World War. The Rev. Clement Falter of Akron, Ohio, Catholic chaplain in an infantry unit which landed last Nov. 8 with the first United States assault troops, was killed during the French resistance. He was buried in a nearby cemetery, along with a "number of other Americans who lost their lives while going ashore. He was teaching in Indiana when he volunteered for service. It was a simple service held amid the write crosses marking the graves of the American dead. On these crosses, placed at the heads of mounds too fresh to be grass- covered, are plates giving names and serial numbers of the fallen soldiers. At the conclusion of the mass the archbishop walked slowly to the edge of the wooden platform, He said slowly and simply: "It was not my intention to say anything, but still I feel that on this occasion I should tell you of the consolation I have experienced to be able to offer the holy sacrifice of the mass for the eternal repose of all our fellow Americans who have given their lives for our country and for the principles our country stands for. "When I left the United States a month ago it was one of my most cherished hopes to visit the graves of American soldiers and sailors and to offer the sacrifice of the mass." He added that here this morning "in a cathedral under the sky with the birds singing accompaniment" he was realizing that hope. That, he said, gave him consolation, as did seeing present so many comrades of the men buried there. "I am sure you share with me and I with you the feelings of gratitude to Almignty God that we are citizens of our land that our land stands for the principles it does." Trial of Pope County Judge Is Continued Russellville, March 15 —(/P)—The trinl of Pope county Judge J. N. Grant, on charges connected with his conduct of county affairs In 1941 and 1942, was postponed again today, this time to March 29. The postponement was granted on defense Attorney Recce Caudle's plea that he was too ill to proceed with his client's defense. Circuit Judge Audrey Strait set March 22 for a hearing on the "dc- muiTability" of the two charges on which it is proposed to try Grunt first. Strait said it was important to dispose of the matter on its merits as quickly as possible and indicated no delay would be granted after March 29. He said if Grant was guilty it should be known in the interest of county government and if innocent he was entitled to public vindication. ers instead of one. SB130 (Education committee) — Lend money from revolving loan fund or permanent school fund to teachers salary fund. Before tackling the approximately appropriation bills, Adkins asked Comptroller J. Bryan Sims to prepare a summary of the bills. Hot Springs Mentioned in State Squabble Little Rock, March 15 (/P). —-The attack Sen. B.F. Williams. Osceola, delivered against Governor Adkins and his adminstration during the legislature's closing session Thursday has been replied to by two administration senators. In a statement issued here last night Senators W. K. Oldham, England, and Henry B. II a r d y, Grcenbrier, declared Adkins was "anxious to save the state of Arkansas money." They r.sscrtcd, however, the Senate minority group was an "obstructionist" bloc and the title "conomy bloc" was a misnomer. Stating that the influence of "the Hot Springs machine" was manifest throughout the session, the two administrationists said "t h e one great desire of a small group was to limit the power of the state police in order that the governor could not order them into the certain counties to stop gambling and bookie joints." During the closing clays of the session, they said, Adkins "favored any concession within reason which would tend to avoid an expensive special session of the legislature."

The f irst round will bgein when the House Ways and Means committee takes up a bill, probably within two weeks, to renew the reciprocal trade agreements act. While the current visit of the British forign secretary had no direct connection with an legislation liefore Congress, supporters of reciprocal trade extension set forth that the trade debate and Eden's talks r«ere would deal largely with the same post war problems of global reorganizations. The recent dominance in the House of Representatives by Republicans aided by a segment of Democrats bore directly on the fate of the trade act, as Republican opponents of extending it already had begun calling on congress to "re-capture" control over tariffs and thus restore congressional prerogatives. It was largely on the "prerogatives" issue that the House last week overwhelmingly voted to negate a presidential order fixing wartime salary limits at $25,000 after taxes. Representatives Robertson (D- Vaj and Gearhart (D - Calif.), both Ways and Means members, took the lead iji opposing v:ews on the reciprocal trade issue, while there was obvious concern among administration leaders on the chances of the act's extension.
