This column at latest reports was threatening El Hamma just west of Gabes. Thus Marshal Rommel, while still full of ideas and fight, remains in a tight spot. And his troubles aren't by any means centered in Montgomery, for our General Patton's fast moving col- I umns. which are operating from j Gafsa as a base, are thrusting per- iously close to the coast and aie threatening to cut Rommel's communications with Nazi General Von Arhim to the north. As a matter of fact there are increasing signs that General Patton and his boys may prove to be the key to the Nazi Marshal's downfall. Were it not for Patton. Rommel would be free to devote his energy to Montgomery and might fight a delaying action over a considerable period at the Mareth Line, despite superior enemy forces. The mom- j ent Patton reaches the coast, however, the marshal is bottled up. with battles to fight both front and rear. Rommel has been showing clear recognition of this Amercian menace by hurling heavy counter-attacks, with massed tanks, at our force in the sector of El Guetar. Allid airmen have been doing yoe- men's work here in waging war on the Axis tank corps, and a considerable number of tanks were knocked out in yesterday's fierce clashes. So we have a double interest in watching Patton and his troubleshooters. They are our own boys and they may hold the key to the gate which will open the road to an Axis debacle. Last Retreat at Randolph Field By DeWITT MacKENZIE General Montgomery's setback the Mareth line in Southern Tu- utoia 'at the hands of-his old rival. Marshal Rommel, isn't anything to , JjOse N sleep over, and he owes no ' ftpologies to anybody. * As .'a matter of fact the British commander has come out of this early exchange! with as good as a d0-4fl "break in his favor. That fig- jilfe isn't at course an effort to put "im exact appraisal on the situation, j ^ Montgomery' and "might fight , but jnorely emphasizes that he has riplavint , act i on over a considerat the better of the.argument, vdespite r Rommel's comeback; v. ;i>-- -, '' The surprising thing isn't : that i Montgomery's hard - hitting veterr ' ang of the desert were partly dislodged by a fierce counter, r attack at the coastal,end of the Mareth Line, but that they: drove,. a hole into: {his Nazi •d^fens.e, in-,so short a time. These, MaretH : fortifications, whiph are k|iown as the ','Maginot 1 l{ne of the desert',' because of their • gre^t strength, are ten miles deep and* were heavily manned with Axis'troops.. In fact, this was the strongest point in the entire line. , ' Montgomery's tactics here were almost identical with those he employed when he broke Rommel's line at El Alamein in Egypt and precipitated the Axis rout which finally wound up in Tunisia. The Briton, taking a page out of the Nazi high Command's own book of tactics for present - day warfare, 3 attacked the strongest point in the line at El Alamein and having driven a slight wedge, kept hammering until he developed a hole and broke through. Once he got to ', the Boche rear, he had them beaten. . Now the line at the , Alamein wasn't a patch on the Mareth Line ', for,strength. Yet Montgomery was something like a week in turning -, the trick, and there was hard fighting^during that period. Thus there Administrator of Food Set Up by President By OVID A. MARTIN Washington, March 25 —(/P) — President Roosevelt announced today the creation in the Agriculture Department of an administration o£ food production and distribution to be ncaded by Chester C. Davis, president of the Federal Reserve Bank'at St. Louis and former director of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration. A White House statement, said 'the administrator will have charge of what may be called the food production and distribution activities of the department, including the agricultural adjustment administration, the food distribution activities that were transferred to the Department of Agriculture by the War Production Board last December, and the recruitment of farm labor recently transferred to the depurtmentby the War Manpower Commission." Davis will obtain leave of absence from his bank, the president's statement said, and report for duty next Monday. Adkins Addresses Ouachita Students Arkadelphia, March 2!> W) — The greatest, threat to democracy on the home front is "due to the activities of the Red and pink professors who hold fort in some of our great universities," Governor Adkins told the Ouachita college student body at a chapel meeting here today. Recalling a 1940 poll which he said showed in nine leading American univcrsilois "one student out of every four is a socialist or communist." Adkins In a prepared speech said: "we must churn up the soil and make it barren for these agitators against Democracy." "Every person in Arkansas and particularly the Baptists ought to thank God for an institution such as Ouachita. The student body by its reception of the great teachings of Christ and the recorded history of the goal of our forefathers can help maintain the high standards and thereby be a factor in our fight on the home front." "The faculty can be even a bigger factor by being constantly on guard to recognize and destroy in its infancy any move toward in- Take or Leave Problem Up to President Washington, March 25 —(/TV— A tnke-it-or-lenve-it problem approached President Roosevelt today in the form of a tandem measure meeting his request for mi increase in the luilionul debt limit but washing out his $25,000 net limitation on salaries.

Senate concurrence was expected without opposition today, sending the bill to the White House after a long legislative journey marked by protest against what congressional critics called executive "usurpation" of their powers. The legislative strategy in melding twt) measures into one gave Mr. Roosevelt this alternative: 1. Acceptance of the bill in its or than take a chance on having a veto overridden.

Law is so busy he sees, usually, only the hands of the per-' son who shoves his income tax payment, through the bars of his window. "Up to this year those hands have been soft hands, washed hands, limp hands, manicured <, hands." says Law. "This year they were different. They were grimy hands, soiled, horny and with oil and grease in the knuckles. Frequently there was i finger or two missing, or a bump or with a gash cut across the knuckles. •They were the hands of labor."
