The Rev. Paul Gaston. of Gospel Tabernacle Will deliver the sermon at tho Hope High School stadium at 7 o'clock Easter morning. Roy Anderson again will serve as chairman for general arrangements. Washington, March 23 —(/P)— Advocates of immediate post war planning were challenged today by Senator LaFollelte (Prog-WisJ to show how their proposal to initiate an organization of the United Nations would be binding on any country, including the United Stales. A member of the Senate Foreign Relations committee which .will consider tho proposal along with others of n similar nature tomorrow. La Follette described a resolution introduced by Senators Ball (R-Minn.), Burton (R-Ohio), Hatch (Dc-NM) and Hill (D-Ala.) as "an extreme manifestation of futility." "It isn't binding on anyone, including its authors," LoFdllctte told reporters. Taknig a similar tack, Chairman Sol Bloom of the House .Foreign Affairs committee descrbied it as "an example of the disjointed and scattered thinking that is going on both within and without congress." Bloom, asserting post war plan proposals now before Congress "don't go deep enough," indicated the House soon "lo get down lo bed rock.' "What is needed," he said, "is a joint commtilee of Ihe Senate and House that will formulate a fundamental comprehensive proposal on postwar problems to be introduced simultaneously in both Senate and House. Then we will have a unified expression on this vast subject with tremendous impetus behind it that will open the way to a prosecution and winning of the peace, the same as a thousand committees are now prosecuting the war." The Senate resolution would put that'body on record ,as urging this government to organize the United Nations to collaborate in immediate economic, relief and rehabi- tation programs and to join in forming a postwar peace preserving union backed up with armed forces. That resolution is fine, as far as it goes," Bloom commented. "But its sponsors haven't even agreed among themselves as 'to what they want lo do. I listened lo them Sunday night when they debalod their resolution and for the life of me I couldn't be sure what it is they want and I am not sure now." While proponents nsrerrecl passage of the resolution would reas-' sure our Allies thin this country- does not intend to Isolate itself after the war, LaFollette classed it in the same category us his anti- third term resolution which the Senate passed during the Coolidge administration. LaFolletle later supported President. Roosevelt for Assembly Made Insanity Ground for Divorce in Arkansas By 6.0 L. CAMPBELL Little Rock, March 13 — W)—Nor- mnlly, H session of the Arkansas legislature means lawyers back •\orne must put in hours}, of study finding out what the new rules.-for them nnd the courts ore going to be. • The general assembly usually lias a liberal sprinklnig of attorney members and most of thenvcnn, in CO days, think up some improvements in jurisprudence. But the members were kept pretty busy during the recent session with more pressing .problems and only 33 bills classified ,".s strictly legal matters got .through! the mill. As far as the general public is concerned, perhaps the most important svas the Hale bill (HB .78) making incurable insanity grounds for divorce. This gives Arkansas a total of eight grounds for dissolving marriage. The insanity statute had a stormy course. 'It had been defeated at two previous sessions. This time It passed the House by only five votes, was once defeated by seven votes in the Senate then revived and passd it just three voles majority. A minor change in the divorce ] laws <SE 1G4) no longer requires attorneys to show the race of the litigants in the proceedings. There were five measures passed pertaining to criminal law. Unauthorized use of another's airplane is now punishable as a mipdemean- or (SB 38). A husband or wife can testify for, but not against, the other in criminal case (SB 40). If a person pleads guilty to a misdemeanor charge in a municipal or justice's court, it will not prevent him from appealing to circuit court from the judgment (SB 124). Indictments must now recite the particulars of an alleged offense and two or more defendants jointly indicted not only can obtain sever- ances but may elect the order in which they shall stand trial (SB 323». In prosecutions on bad check charges, if the check is on an out- of-state bank, the instrument itself may be used as evidence without necessity of summoning a bank official from the other state (HB 439). Every little business man should check up on another new'law (SB it was repealed (SB 209). There were 12 bills passed relating to estates, most of them too technical for maymen to worry about. These prohibit absentee administration of estates (HB 40), clarify a husband's rights in his wife's property (HB 50), allow guardians broader .powers in executing oil and gas leases for incompetents (HB 290), allow guardians of incompetent veterans to purdhase homes for lhair wards (SB 191), reduce the amount of advertising necessary .for guardian's sales (SB 173), put a new statute of limitations on claims against estates (SB 260), permit administrations on claims against estates (SB permit administrators to post surely bonds (SB IBS), prescribe qualifications for guardians (HB 417), eliminate a requirement that a husband also sign a wife's receipt for an estate (HB 2fi3), regulate wills (SB 172), require all beneficiaries share proportionately all taxes against an estate (HB 146), and facilitate ex ccution of contracts after one parly has become incompetent (HB 496). Eleven measures had to do with court procedure. Filing exceptions in criminal cases is affected (SB 25) and circuit courts will be open at all times now for pre- trial conferences and other silimar business (SB 155). If a practicing at torney cannot be found, a chancellor may appoint a non - lawyei as a probatt referee (SB 210). Oral testimony as well as • depositions may be (HB 21). Procedure in filing bills of interpleader was altered (SB 76). Times for holding court in the eighth and seventeenth circuits were changed (SB 381-SB 212). Pu laski county's three circuit judges may now interchange their work (SB -12), and chancery courts may appoint a standing master (SB 63). The governor is given authorily lo appoint emergency circuit judges when the regular judge goes to war (SB.395) and a uniform lav, governing acknowledgements has been passed (SB 322).

SERIAL STORY By RELMAN MORIN London, Tuesday, March 23 —(/P) — Allied commanders were study- ng today the results of a recent 'trial offensive" sham exercise of uch :genuinc character thnl Ihe iermans, according to their broad- asts and newspapers, thought it vas the beginning of a real inva- ion of the continent. The operation lasted 10 days and overed a wide area of England. It ested new and secret methods vhereby an army presumably landed with the heaviest equipment, in- luding lanks and artilery, on an enemy shore and drove overland to specific objective. Totally new field tactics and or- onizalional techniques were employed, stressing speed and strik- ng power. The concentralion of men and maleriel allraclcd Ihe allenlion of erman aerial reconnaissance. The lUftwaffe apparently spotted two luge armies assembling, for the Berlin radio promptly reported: "The British are massing for some audicious attempt on the continent." The Germans may not have long lo wait. Wilhin the limitations of the fact .hat it was a mock operation, the exercise furnished an all-out test Tor the plan ilself as well as for men and machines. Aclual combat condilions were simulated as closely as possible and a number of real casualties resulted through accidents. No live ammunition was used, but there were several instances in which hand-to-hand combat occurred between batlle-hol Iroops before umpires could inlervene. One Canadian outfit went nearly 40 hours without 'food when il outstripped its transport in a long, forced march. The new operations scheme embracing all air force functions — fighters, bombers, reconnaissance, etc. — in a single field command and synchronizing this with the ground forces was given a thorough trial. The commanders made enthusiastic reports on results. Meanwhile, every other branch of j: both armies was put through the severest trials the umpires could devise. Engineers threw up real bridges, including some capable of bearing heavy Churchill lanks across streams. Two airfields were constructed under ..fire and put into actual use as the campaign progressed. The speed of the .attackers' ad- 'ance was so great .that there was t least one instance where trans- jort failed to maintain the fuel upply for armored units, although ruck drivers worked themselves to exhaustion. The attacking army was com- nanded by Lieut.-Gen. A. G. L. VIcNaughton ,of Canada, who de- lared after.the operations: "The Canadians are fit and ready o go." The two forces were composed entirely of Canadian and British roops. American observers were present but no U. S. units were nvolved. Americans all converge at El C _ | _ _j_". _ 'V Hamma.

Mak- nassy itself was reported captured with only slight resistance. In northern Tunisia where the British first army has toeen under persistent attack by the forces of Col. Gen. Jurgen Von .Arnim there were only artillery duels and patrol activity in the Djebel Abiod area, 47 miles west of tBizerte. The heaviest battling, however, was in the Mareth line where the communique said "the enemy is resisting strongly" and attempted a "heavy counterattack" yesterday afternoon which -was repulsed.

PAT'S PLAN CHAPTER XX W/'HEN the morning radio forum " ended there in the hotel convention hall, Pat Friday came out with her face looking ever so serious. Her mind was in a whirl, and she dodged the lobby crowd which would surely recognize her, ducked up a stairway and went to the big women's lounge. First person she spotted there was Loraine Stuart. Pat stopped in her tracks. It wouldn't do to antagonize Loraine. Not any more than had been done already. This whole situation, Pat reminded herself, was so strained! Here in Phoenix, Ariz., hanging on the outskirts of all the publicity and all the excitement and fun of the transcontinental soaring 'flight, was Caplain Carr's own fiancee. The girl who was originally scheduled to fly with him, and who, the public thought, actually was with him, at least in name. Only—it was Pat herself who publicly carried Loraine's name. The real Loraine remained a nonentity, sulking, concealed. All at once Pat felt a rush of sympathy for the other girl. "Whether I like her or not has nothing to do with it," Pat told herself. "She just got a dirty break at the start. And—and after all—shoe's the girl Jimmy love's!" That was the fact which stung. Loraine Stuart was the girl Jimmy loved. Pat's own love for Jimmy was a secret which only two people in the world knew. She went to Loraine and sat down. "Come on and go places with me," Pat invited, with sincere kindness now. "There's no point in our despising each other, Loraine." The taller girl was smoking. She exhaled, looking off as if unaware of Pat at all. "No," she said, finally. Pat tucked a pretty lip 3n, thoughtfully. Then she tried again. "Loraine, I've already told you, » the whole thing is impersonal with me. It's bigger than we are. And as for Jimmy himself—I admitted I was out of the picture there, too. He's yours, by his own choice. And you owe it to him to—to be a good sport and all. . . . Don't you?" She looked at Pat, then. "Did he send you to tell me this?" "Goodness no!" "Then let me alone." For a long moment Pat just looked at the other girl, studying her. When she spoke again, it was in low, sad tone. "All right, Lo- raine. . . . All right. ... I just wanted to—try to be friends. To try!" Pat left her, then. There were some things she couldn't do, and this was one she had muffed, she realized. It built unhappiness, deep inside. What a shame that a boy as tops as Jimmy Carr had to marry such a girl! Had to. ... Pat shrugged. Loraine was his own choice. Jimmy Carr was conferring with Army officials and technicians in another of the hotel halls, Pat knew. They would have a lot of man-talk about the trip so far. The tow plane's performance at various altitudes. The various stresses encountered. The effects of air pockets. The reports on weather and other natural phenomena. Weather especially was important. Pat and Ed Bryan had faced two storms on their power flight westward, and this morning she had looked out the east window of her hotel room and saw ominous clouds over distant Superstition Mountain. Superstition lurked on the horizon like a sprawling blue monster. "I want to talk to Jimmy," Pat told herself now. "If those farmers — that one especially — want proof—" * * * AN audacious idea had germi- •^ nated in Pat's mind, but she held it down until she could talk with Jimmy Carr. She carried it to his conference room right now. "Come in, Miss Stuart!" the men greeted her with respect. Pat hated the necessity of masquerading under Loraine's name. But she stuck it out. "Could I have about 10 minutes of your time, gentlemen?" she asked. "If Captain Cai$ and I could only—" 7 Jimmy had seen her now. "Pat!" he called, involuntarily. Then, remembering, said, "Come in, uh, Loraine. Sure, sure!" P'at could have been a nickname; a pet name which a man called his fiancee. Army men smiled benignly on them and made a place for her at their long table. "I was just talking to a farmers' meeting," she explained. "And— and a man challenged me. I guess he made me mad." A youngish major spoke up. "I will personally shoot him, Miss Stuart." Pat gave him a quick smile. "This is serious, major. I mean it. But first I want to be sure of my ground." She turned, as if seeking highest possible authority, to another man. "Jimmy, didn't you say gliders could be made for around $200 each, when quantity production starts?" she asked. "Yes. That's an estimate, of course. But there's not much to them. No expensive motor. Just framework and fabric, and a few instruments." "Could really big ones be made?" "They can be made as big as boxcars." "Oh! Then Jimmy—" He jabbed a'finger at her, and swept his glance to include the men around them, "Listen, in Russia they have already used gliders that carried dozens of men. Also in Germany. Exactly what we are doing in America, of course, is military information, kept quiet right now. But our Army men have already announced plans for moving 75,000 soldiers coast to coast over night. Using gliders, towed by airplanes." "I knew that!" Pat nodded. "Trie 75,000 would include full equipment, even to light cannon and machine guns!" "A lot of weight, then. In glider trains." "Well look, Jimmy—that farmer who made me mad, he said it was a crazy idea. He said gliders are just kites. He said he resented the whole idea." "Resented it? For Pete's sake!" '"Some people always resent new ideas," another officer put in. "He said that soaring might have some place in the Army business, but it certainly had none in civilian life. And he to mind said the its own Army ought affairs." Jimmy said, "The Army is made up of civilians in uniform. Our problems are theirs. Theirs are ours." "I told him that," Pat agreed. 'But he—he laughed, the wrong way. I said it was feasible for air trains to take perishable fruits and vegetables from these very farms, and drop off a loaded glider at every town passed. He scoffs at the whole idea of air trains." Jimmy slapped the table. "We can show him proof!" said he. He turned to the other officers. "Gentlemen, this week we have a soaring carnival. And here is a challenge, put right up to us by a civilian. It's rather significant, if you ask me! Will you help me back up what Pat—what Miss Stuart told that farmer, with real proof?" The officers were looking at Pat in fra.nk admiration. (To Be Continued) British (Continued From Page One) niles around Rommel's flank by British units resulted in an advance to 10 miles south of one of iis airfields, El Hamma, to his ear and less than 20 miles from Jabes.) The communique said 1,700 prisoners had been taken by Gen. Montgomery. After taking Maknassy in a drvie into Rommel's flank to the rear of his Marelh positions, the Americans moved onto the high ground east of the railway village, the communique said. (The Algiers radio said the Americans occupied a ridge three miles beyond Maknassy. This would place then only about 31 miles from the Gulf of Gabes by the straightest line. (El Hamma, reported threatened in the CBS broadcast, is almost due west of Gabes, and is not only the site of one of Rommel's most im portant air bases which might be useful to United States and British planes busily pounding the fight ou of Axis forces, but $lso a key roac junction in the Axis chieftain's in ner communications system.
