HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Wednesday, March 24, 1943 e Wily Rommel Also Rendering Japs Great Service "-*•** ilysis of News by lackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. , By DeWITT MacKENZIE Kews that Nazi Marshal_Rommel has been able by counter-attacks to ,i restore the main Axis defenses in l/the Mareth Line of fortifications in ^Southern Tunisia gives grim warn' ing that there will be bloody fight= ing before he is driven into the sea. J If almost any other Axis general ; ,than the fox of the desert had been In tht center of that fast closing 4 Allied trap yesterday, one would ,*' have said that his position was des, perate. However, the word "des- Kl* ,l>erate" carries the idea of hope- i/i^lessness, and I don't believe Rom"' me! knows any 's\ich definition. ' _ Certainly he appears to have ex- fi tricated himself at least tempor- '' arily from a position of extreme 'peril by the resourcefulness and fierceness of his counter-attacks ^ The lighting on the Mareth Line is ~"said to have: been heavier than any- 5| thing previously experienced ,in the """ African campaign. * What has happened thus far is this: Rommel had his main 1 strength deployed behind the Mar •«. 'cth Line. Britain's Cromwellian 'Eighth Army leader.. General Montgomery, smashed through the strongest part of that line near where it was anchored on the coast. ^ Simultaneously he sent a fast-mov ing mechanized column around the f other end of the line, and this force swung towards the coast behind RommeL Thus Montgomery by his sensational daring had put his old enemy -in"a bag. The sack had holes in places, but still it was sack. Meantime, our own General Patton was giving Hell-bent for the coast with three columns which were based on • ,Gafsa. His business was to tie up : T the mouth of the sack before Rom•' inel nad a chance to escape by ^ making ,'a run for the north. At ^latest reports the Nazi general was '< counter-attacking our column in El Guetar sector with a large tank 1 force m an effort to keep the Yankees off his back. >• --But Rommel apparently had no ' t intention of running. While details %are lacking, he saved himself so ', well from the sack which was clos- : «£ ing about him that British Premier W't r Churchill announced this Allied re- ''Verse in the House of Commons. It's clear that the Allies have no walkover there. i, Hitler's order to his Tunisian forces to fight to a finish makes clear the nature of the sacrifice jie has imposed. We must be prepared to see heavy casualties on both sides. . i Actually the Fuehrer's command would seem to be rather a needless gesture towards a soldier who has served him so well. Rommel has 'fought a delaying action with a skill which few contemporary generals could match. That has been his job — to hold the Allies in Northern Africa while his master got set in Europe — and it has been performed with so much skill that he may have saved the Axis from a quick collapse. Hitler would seem to have spoken truly last Sunday when he boasted in. his Heroes' Memorial Day speech that "we have succeeded Allied forces and equipment en- definitely in overcoming the crisis ,Jnto which our army had been plunged," and that the German front m Southern Russia had been , stabilized. He might have addec that this was made possible by the way in which Rommel has kept gaged in Tunisia, thereby delaying United Nations operations agains the continent and making the Nazis feel free to remove troops from Furor Caused When Body Is Left in River Caruthersvitlc, Mo., March 24 VP)Srongly worded resolutions, criticizing the army authorities for their failure to raise a training plane from the Mississippi river vhere it crashed February 28 near icrc and recover the body of the pilot, have been sent by tow Car- iithersvillc civic clubs to representatives in Congress, it was learned today. The Rotary club was first to adopt resolutions and a message was dispatched immediately to Rep. OrvlUe Zimmerman by Harold S. Johes, secretary. The Busi ness and Prossional \Vomen's club sent similar resolutions to Senator Harry Truman and appealed for some action toward recovery of the body. The Blytheville, Ark., air base announced the plane which fell into the river was occupied by Cadet James E. Morrison, Jr. The body is still believed to be in the plane, j which struck a submereged sandbar and part of the plane could be seen above the water until a few day ago. The Mississippi river is rising here and now has completely covered the wrecked craft. Immedictaely after the accident army officials came here and attempted for two or three days to raise the plane. It is now believed to be partly covered with sand. Austin Tilman, speaking before the Rotary club, said apparently no earnest effort has been made to raise the plane or recover the body, a task which he said local river men would have been glad to perform lang ago had they been permitted to do so. "Some day," he said, "such a scandal as is developing over this situation will reflect upon this community," and he belives it only "common humanity for the people here to undertake to have something done about it." As result of the message to Zimmerman, urging that he prod the War Department into action if possible, Jones said today a reply had veen received in which Zimmerman said the department explained that due to high stage of the river, efforts to raise the plane and recover the body had been abandoned. Cadet Morrison was reported as "missing" in a message to the parents who live at Maxton, N. C., and this is still the offical status, army men say, as he would not be reported dead until the body is recovered. Zimmerman advised the local club that Col..Mliner, adjutant general of the Army Air Corps, said Because of the fact that it is not nrnown now definitely where the jlane is located and that due to he flood stage of the river it may be washed down stream many miles or covered by silt. Authorities lad abandoned hope of finding it. 3e advised that if anyone could give any d e f i n i te information where the plane now is, the coast- uard would immediately resume efforts to raise it and recover the body.

Had the German right wing been torn from its anchor on the Sea of Azov, an Axis disaster most surely would have followed. But Rommel is doing more than serve ihe Axis. Every day he manages to protract operations in Tunisia, thus blocking communications through the Mediterranean to the Orient, he is rendering a great service to Japan. He is relieving pressure on the Nipponese and so making it easier for them to carry out operations in Burma and other zones. It will be a great day for the Allies when Rommel meets Dunkerque. GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, March 24 — (/P) — A strong undertone prevailed in the grain pils today and, although trading was of only moderate proportions, wheat advanced about a cent at times. Rye was up a similar amount and may oats, ahead a major fraction, moved to a new seasonal high. Cash oats were in heavy demand, No. 1 white selling as high as 68 1-4 censt a bushel, a new peak in the local market since 1928. What closed 1-2—3-4 higher, May $1.45 3-4, July $1.46 1-4, corn was unchanged at ceilings, May $1.01, oats advanced 5-8—7-8, and rye gained 1-4—5-8. Cash wheat; Sample grade mixed 1.41.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York, March 24 —(/P) — Steels, coppers, golds and specialties forged ahead today in the stock market and there were scattered peaks for the year or longr. Wavelets on profit cashing occasionally showed the rise but failed to stop it. Although gains were held generally to fractions, a few ranged to around a point toward the close. Volume, reflecting a rapid turnover in low-priced utilities was in the u neighborhood of 1,100,000 shares for Ihe full session. Highway Funds Plenty Despite Gas Rationing Little Rock, March 24 — (/P)—De- ;pitc tire and gasoline rationing, Arkansas highway revenues during .he bond year to end March 31 filled all requirements of the 1941 refunding law and left a balance of approximately $235,000 "f r c e money" for addition to the highway reserve fund, Refunding Supervisor Frank Storey, Jr., reported today. A Revenue Department report showed that gross collections to date totalled $15,518,065 with an es- timiated $20,000 to come in before the end of the month. This was about $2,000,000 below the total of the 1941-42 bond year. Requirements of the refunding law, including county turnback and collection costs, aggregated $15,303,000. A 1943 law provided for transfer of "free moneys" to the highway reserve fund as a cushion for the highway debt service fund. If money in the debt service cushion falls below $3,500,000, moneys in the reserve fund would be used to restore it to that level. lioning is necessary to divide up a curtailed civilian supply because of heavy diversion of these foods to the armed services and lend-Icase. Some packers and stock men have blamed the shortage on government interference with normal producing arid marketing procedures. Restaurants and olher public eating places continue without customer coupons, but their over-all food supplies arc rationed and officials are considering legal limitations on portions. OPA officials hinted people could not expect to supplement their home meat rations very much by dining out. Ony farmers arc exempt, being authorized to cat as much as they desire of their own produce, although they must collect coupons if they sell any of il to outside consumers. Farmers also hope rationing will restrain wholesale and retail meal prices sufficiently to obviate an OPA proposal for restricting the prices of live meat animals. Hamburger is only 5 points per pound, but a catch here is that OPA's definition of hamburger is something made exclusively of scraps and other waste meals. If one wants better ground meat, he will have to buy il in its original form, pay the regular point value, and then have it ground to order. Other cheaper meats include slew meat at between 4 and 6 points per pound, spare ribs at 4, beef urains al 3, beef liver at 0 or pork liver at 5, and ready to cat pigs feet at 2 points per pound. Some high - point items include: boneless loin pork chops, 10; pork tenderloin, 10; fried beef, 12; Can- i adian bacon, 11; whole or half of rcady-to-cat ham at 9 or 11 if sliced. All butter and rationed types oof cheese are 8 points per pound; lard, shortening and margarine, 5; salad and cooking oils, 6 poinls pet- pound or pint; all canned fish, 7 points per pound (figuring can't total cost according to label weight of contents). Generally, ready-to - eat meats, especially delicatessen items, were given point values 2 points per pound it unshccd (or 3 points per pound if sliced) higher than the coupon cost of the raw meat. This differential was selected to take care of shrinkage and waste in processing. Thus, to find the point value of corned beef, as an example, a butcher will have to figure out. what cut of meat it was made out of, the point value of the meat in its original form, and add 2 or 4 points per pound, depending on whether the finished product is sold whole or sliced. A whole or half fresh ham, for instance, will cost 7 points per pound, while the same ham in ready-to-eal condition costs 9 points. Ready to cat sliced ham is a slight exception from the rule, and costs 11 points per pound. are on a "per pound" basis, even with regard to canned meats or fish, and fractional weights will be figured to the nearest full coupon point — except thnt a tcast one point must be charged for even the smallest purchase. Thus a steak which costs 8 poinls per pound may be bought in a half pound portion at 4 points, or in u pound and three ounce size at 10 poinls. In this figuring, a fraction amounting to less than 12 poinls is disregarded, while a fraction of 1-2 or more costs a whole point. Thus 7 ounces ot pork sausage (7 points per pound' will cost 3 points, while 8 ounces will cost 4 points. Because of (lie difficulty in cut- | ling meat lo exact weights, and I pro.ximately thus to exact coupon totals, OPA authorized butchers to give "coupon change," using 1-poinl coupons for this purpose. For instance, if a person bought 6 points worth of meat and had only an 8 point coupon to pay for it, the butcher can give him back two 1-poinl stamps. This is a departure from the point system on canned goods, where no change is permitted. Flour Milling Executives Are Indicted But Americans (Continued From Pago One) Chicago. March 24 —(/1V-Sixteen flour rnilling corporations, eleven of their executives and their national trade corporations, eleven of their executives and their national trade association were indicted by the federal Kriind jury here today on charge of conspiracy to fix prices of packaged family float- sold throughout the United States. The indictment set forth that up, 45,000,000 barrels of ' family flour are sold annually in the United States and 81 percent of this amount is milled by members of the millers national federation, tl\e defendant trade association. Packaged family flour is that sold ordinarily for use in homes, as distinct from bulk bakery flour. The indictment charged that in spite of variables among the defendants in their cost of producing packaged flour, the defendants met from time to lime and agreed upon a uniform'schedule of price differentials to be applied to the various sizes of packages in which family flour is sold. The government charged the Millers Federation published and circulated printed schedules of the uniform price differentials and that each of the defendants used these schedules in making up its own price .ist. The addition tif these packaging charges, the indictment contended had the effect of increasing bulk prices charged by Millers by more than 100 per cent in some sizes. The indictment charged hint as a result of this alleged conspiracy the defendants fixed and maintained arbitrary and non - competitive selling prices for packaged flour -ind prevented the formation of selling prices by the free and competitiv edetermination of individual millers. The indictment charged that as fore Judge John .P. Barnes by Daniel Drill, chief of the midwest offices of the anti-trust division, Department of Jutice. fighters and destroyed two of them.

U.S. to Probe (Continued From Page One) revelations, and added: "Whoever is responsible, underling, intermediate or top, will have to walk the flank." Truman repeatedly told J. Lester Perry, president of Carnegie Illinois, U. S. steel subsidiary, that he had spent more time "attempting to justify" what had happened than "trying to see how high up knowledge of this practice went." Perry denied this and said he was suspending a number of people and that he would clean house to see that there would be no repetition of the "tragic" occurrences. His only explanation for failure to carry out prescribed tests, he said, was that "a few individuals responsible for the making of tests, having an intimate knowledge of the high character of the steel and honestly believing that the plates in question svould fully meet all requirements, grew lax under the pressure of heavy production." He said his company deeply deplored what had occurred, and that the high management was in no way involved. "It seems to me that if I had a bunch of crooks and cheaters in my organization. I'd fire them immediately," Truman told him. "The committee has not been impressed with your attitude in this matter. You heard of this last Tuesday, but you apparently haven't discharged a single em- ploye." Perry said it took time to make a check and determine responsibility. New Orleans Minister to Face Charges New Orleans, March 24—W)—Assistant District Attorney Henry J. Voss said today a charge of attempted murder would be filed against the Rev. Charles Monroe, 50, rector of St. Pauls' Episcopal Church here, for the shooting and wounding of his former secretary, Mrs. John McBride and her estranged husband, a shipyard worker, each 38. The shooting occurred Monday in a bedroom at the McBride home where the minister told police he went after 30 minutes of prayer to warn the wife of threats he atlri- Allied Airmen Trade Punches With Germans London, March 24 — (/P) —Trading punches with the Germans across the Englaish channel, Allied airmen struck again this morning at enomy targets in northern France as Nazi warplanes resumed hit - and run raids on coastal districts of Britain. Heavy explosoins west of Boulogne rocked houses in the Fokstone area after formations of Allied planes had streaked across the channel. The burst of daylight actilily provided a follow up to night attacks by RAF fighters on railway communications in northwest Germany and occupied territory. As '.he Allied daylight raiders kept up a regular'Shuttle service across narrow Dover strait highflying Germans, using the mist as cover, crossed the British coast to bomb a locality in the soulhcast. More formalions of allied planes headed for Northern France lalei in the morning, but all were flying too high for watchers on Ihe coast to determine whether they were British or American. The government ordered that all meals should be sold on a "Norman Irim" basis. That meant that butchers are supposed to cut off a "normal" amount of bone and fat before weighing. However, consumers will have to do their own policing of the order, and if dissatisfied can do nothing but argue with the outchcr or take Ihcir trade elsewhere. A few standard types of meal failed lo appear on the point chart, notably rolled rib beef roast. For any such cuts, the point value will have to be determined by weighing up the original cut after which the butcher can trim and roll or otherwise prepare the desired cut.

For bootleggers pay no taxes. Open, above-board taverns, now constantly supervised, are displaced by blind tigers which can be inspected only on a search warrant based on sworn evidence. Laws alone aren't the answer. Moderation— self-regulation— is. That's today's answer and it's simple and workable. The beer industry stands together in demanding that beer be sold tinder whole- some, proper conditions. The great majority of beer-sellers agree and keep the sale of beer on a high level of decency and moderation. The occasional incorrigible—(there's one in every business!)—is handled without gloves. First we get the facts. Then we warn him. This generally works. He cleans up. But if he doesn't—he's closed up, by alert law enforcement officials who move swiftly, revoke licenses on our complaint.
