HOPESTAK.HOtt, ARKANSAS togr.Mfcg.Jta, uss/an-Japanese Fishing Pacf Considered Practical Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. Market Report By DcWITT MacKENZIE Renewal of the Russo-Japanese ihing pact, whereby the Japs ac- [Uire sorely needed rights to take ;sh in certain Soviet waters, ^-hould serve as a pointed reminder /that sentiment isn't likely to over- «"$ule practical considerations in the ^ Jnakfiig of war — or of peace. f That isn't peculiar to Russia and "Japan. It's equally true of Shangri 'Jba and Utopia. ;* Tliis business of the practical '^versus sentiment is worth -bearing ^n mind as we look forward to postwar readjustments — the fiery ^ question of boundaries, for in' stance. That's just so we won't be " jjrievously disappointed if the new 4 Tines aren't wholly altruistic. It's something to be remembered •also by those who've been gamb- A ling that the Reds will join the Allies in the war against Japan after Hitler has been disposed of. Maybe I' the Russians will do exactly that — ^ tbut don't bet your shirt on it. The ^ ;Muscovites are nothing If not prac- i, tical. v * This article isn't meant to be \" 'cynical. During,my recent trip abroad I found all the Allied countries and their friends shooting for high 1 ideals — which is as should be. We shall achieve a lot of them, tpo. But so-called practical (nasty word, that) considerations will keep us from some ambitions, and it's well that we recognize this and try to deal with the handicaps as we go along. Undoubtedly every Allied nation will have some "prac- •tical" problems to meet. The Russo-Jap fishing pact is a practical matter. It may seem anomalous that the Reds should fight the European Axis with the right hand, and at the same time aid the Asiatic branch with the left. Still, there's nothing very strange about it Obviously neither Russia nor Japan wants war with the other at this moment, for each already has all it can handle comfortably. And Nippon has to have those fish to keep hunger from its big population. -> Actually, of course, Moscow and Tokyo signed a five-year neutrality and friendship pact two years ago. This provides among other things that each will remain neu-' tral in case one of the signatories "is the "object of military action on {he part of one of several powers." k 'So far as the sanctity of this pact is concerned, Moscow naturally knows full well that Japan's word hasn't the value of a punctured toy balloon. Any time it serves their purpose the Japanese will follow in the footsteps of their ally, Herr Hitler, who attacked Russia •> after having signed the Russo-German non-aggression pact of A u 8ust 23, 1939, a week before the Nazis launched the second world conflict, i However, while the Reds aren't anxious to wage war in both Europe and Asia at the same time, the Japs will be very daring if they try to do a Pearl Harbor on the Russians.

Evacuees to Work in Sugar Fields Little Rock, Ark., March 27 OT — Twenty - five evacuees arc en route from Japanese relocation centers in Arkansas to Belle' Fourche. S. D., to work in the sugar beet fields, the War Relocation Authority reported today. "They are going with the intention of staying," said E. B. Whitaker, Arkansas WRA director "We are tyring to get these evacuees back into circulation on a regular basis - not just as seasonal workers. Families of these 25 men will follow, and if everything works out as satisfactorily as we hope quite a number of others probably will go there later."

"Here's a really great story for you," they said, beaming with fond memories. So George got excited too and took a look at an old picture, a history - making movie that grossed $5,000,000 after its release in 192!~> — "The Phantom of the Opera," starring the late Lou Cha ncy with Norman Perry and Mary Philbin. "And I found that the 'great story' was really no story at all," says Waggner. "It had never had a story." Waggncr, now rising rapidly ns> a producer, applied to the no story the theory that has brought him success with various movie horros is.that movie monsters must be given human personalities and wii a certain amount of sympathy foi their inevitably tragic fate before audiences will believe in them.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York, March 2 — (ff) —Profit cashing in the stock market today stemmed the 5-session sprint to peak levels in nearly three years on the largest volumes in more 'nan 15 months. While favorites continued to at- ment funas, the sharp advance- tract idle speculative and investment funds, the sharp advance caused some potential buyers to withdraw and pinsired the cutting of the commitments by others on the idea a technical correction might be in the offing. War news was without a great deal of stimulation marketwise, although the inflation theme persisted as an anti - selling argument. Trends were a bit cloudy at the start and toward the last mild irregularity was the rule. Dealings were nmong the largest for Saturday since late 1941. Transfers for the two hours were in the neighborhood of 800,000 shares. Bonds and commodities were tin en. Russians Renew Fish Treaty With Japanese Moscow. March 26 —(/P) — An agreement signed at Kuibyshev Russia has given Japan a one-year extension of fishing privileges which the Japanese have enjoyed in certain Soviet Far Eastern waters since 1923. The government newspaper Izvestia. which announced the signing, said the agreement was in- tialed yesterday by Soviet Vice Commissioner for Foreign Affairs Lozovsky and Japanese Ambassador Naotake Sato. The fisheries protocol, originally signed 20 years ago, was renewed in 1928. It expired in 1936 and has not been renewed since then, but the convention is prolonged each year on the basis of the original agreement. The agreement this year is virtually the same as in previous years except that the rentals which the Japanese must pay are increased by five per cent. Last year when the protocol was extended the rate went up by four per cent. In the new color version, the phantom (Claude Rains) will b "explained." He is an embittered musician, liis face horribly scarred by acid in a temperamental altercation, who haunts the cavern beneath the Paris opera house with one obsession — to promote his daughter (Susanna Foster) as leading singer. In the old film Chancy haunted those same caverns, a misshapen monster of grotesque eyes, teeth and head, a creature without a past and motivated only by a "crush" on the leading lady. "Here," says Waggncr, "we're taking time to sell the central character as a human being." He and Arthur Lubin, the director, are enthusiastic over the manner in which the new talc is being unfolded, by means of music and dramatic action tightly related, so that when the arias sung by Nelson Eddv After 20 years the old "Phan lorn" stage — built for $500,000 to the late Carl Laemmlc's dismay— is uijiiin the Paris opera house. The stage lias become an institution in Hollywood, serving the "U" for countless films and bringing in sub stantiul revenue from rentals to other studios needing a theater scl — or a swimming pool, for thai matter, for the stage was later modernized, soundproofed and cqu ipped for a tank beneath its floor ing. Producer Waggncr says that Nel son Eddy, with new dark hair urn black moustache, is emerging as a vital personality — "for the firs lime he doncsn't seem to fade into M. G-M's wallpaper" —and he alsi has hosannas for Susanna. Sam Dyer, 76, of Washington Dies Sam Dyer, 76. resident of Hemp stead county, died at his home u Washington yesterday.

Significant Measures Passed by Assembly in Short Period Washington By JACK STINNETT Wide World Features Writer Washington — Before and after earl Harbor, I wrote several stores about what women pilots were oing to do in this war. When the Civil Aeronautics Ad•Ministration was forced to abandon ts training of women pilots, I received a number of letters to which .here was no answer. The ladies :md been grounded and told to go lomc and tend to their knitting. Congress (through Us powers of appropriation, but with recommendations from other quarters) had degreed that the CAA had belter expend all its energies and funds training men who might be useful to the Army and Navy air forces. Now word comes from the CAA that it has gruadtcd ten girls from the "Women's Instructor Training School" at Nashville.

CAMPBELL Little Rock. March 26 — (IP)— In between all .the shouting about economy, preoccupation with local legislation and wrangling over game and fish bills, the legislature found lime this year to pass some miscellaneous measures of significance. Usually proposed changes in the election laws come in for much bat- llinK. This lime it was all crowded into a few hours and attracted —on the whole — little attention. Almost forgotten was the litlle malter of providing for new summer's preferential primary. But in Ihe nick of lime the 1941 law (HB 498) was recnacted, this lime I without an expiration clause. So, ] as happened with Ihe sales, tax, that system may last a few years now. For many years now, Arkansas has enjoyed the right of initiative and referendum but not until this of one week in advance of an election. Assessment of public employ- es for political purposes would be 1AM I 1 V year did the legislature get around j lh . lt to A'riting an enabling act for it— that is, specific rules for following the system. The Leasure - Ferguson bill (MB 324) is lengthy and encompassing. It provides heavy penalties for violations and throws numerous "safe guards" around the system. Each person must sign petitions in his own hand - writing (no provision for persons who can't write i. No section of a petition may eon- tain signatures from more than one county and each county petition must be accompanied by a certified list of poll tax-payers to facilitate checking. That attorney general must approve ballots titles before petitions are circulated and the Secretary of Stale must rule on the sufficiency of petitions. If 20 per cent of the signatures arc found bad, the whole petition may be challenged. Legal recourse is provided to protect the petitioners. Another election measure (SB • 351) provides for selection of cle- tion officials two weeks instead prohibited (HB 3!>7j. In Ihe field of business, the legislature passed in modified form the "county signature" insurance measure (SB1II2I intended to protect Arkansas agents from out -of- stalc insuraco firms. Beauty operators from other slates will be able to obtain reciprocity licenses (HB52) und the sale of diamonds and watches at auctions will, be in for regulation (SB369*. A measure passed (HB 4321 strictly regulating sale of contrcep- lives and certain types of medicinal preparations and the state health department was given more authority in its inspections of hotels and rooming house (HB 294). Arkansas was lined up with a number of other states in a fight for preservation of stale's rights by a bill (HB 2M) giving the attorney general authority to act in A racial problem was raised in a bill (HB 204i giving bus drivers authority to enforce separate scaling arrangements for whiles and negroes. Buses operated in lieu of street cars in cities arc exempt from the measure. The legislature reduced tUc number of state holidays and set aside some of the old ones as commen- ation days. A new commemoration date is G e n c r a I Douglas Muc- Arlhjr's birthday, Jan. 20. State banks now have the same lending powers as National Bunks (SB 7H and out -of -stale motorists can operate their cars for 90 days in Arkansas without buying a slate auto license (SB 135). The state's oil and gas commission will investigate during the next two years Ihe possibilily of secondary recovery in the old soulh Arkansas fields <SB331). New regulations for the sale of butane gas application arc provided in one bill (SU 3191 while another (HB 103) sets up a new system of boiler inspections. That has a familiar sound, but one not too much to be relied upon, in view of what has gone before. Nevertheless, in spite of all the secrecy about women aviators in the war effort, Ihe girls in the CAP. CAA and Air Transport Command have a remarkable record. It may be that the wall is finally breaking down. Using the Tennessee record as a lever, the CAA is asking Cogrcss for a supplementary appropriation of $2.500.000 to turn out 500 more women instructor pilots within six months and backlog that with 100 more in training. In view of that, it may be well to run over the record of the ladies of the airways. Each hud logged 120 hours in the air before entering school and each had logged 10") hours or more before she was "graduated". Each qualifcid for a commercial pilot's license before she gol her "wines" from the Nush- villc school, as well as qualifying as a pilot instructor. In addition, each had at leusl five ratings in ground school subjects (mcteror- lofiy, aerial navigation, aircraft structure, aircratl engines and civil air regulations.) Flight contractors all over the soulh have bid for Ihe girls, .services. One of the biRKCst schools in Miami has otfercd to hire all ten graduates: Stephens College for Women in Missouri has asked for Iwo; a Tennessee school board has come through with an offer of $2,000 a year for Iwo; scholos in El Paso, Phoenix, New Orleans and several other cities have made templing offers. Phoebe Omlie, veteran woman pilot and CAA education specialist in charge of the Tennessee project, points out that Ihey can accept any o£ the offered jobs and slill be directly in the war effort. , Ifl HEV1WHAT'5THE IDE A?

THE SPIRIT OF THE CARDINALS—Slats Marion backs up White; Kurowski back of third base at Yankee Stadium as latter catche foul from bat of Joe Gordon in ninth inning of 2-0 victory nU game of World Series last fall. NEA Sports Editor Cairo, 111., March 00.--St. Louis Cardinals sit ulop Ihe baseball world at Cairo, where the Ohio joins the Mississippi—nearer the equator than any other major league club in training. The Red Birds tell you they arc a kick in the pants to repeal as world champions, but Ihey won't play it that way. Few clubs exemplified teamwork to the extent of the 1942 Cardinals, and the current edition retains the spirit of the old Gas-House Gang. The phenomenal drive of lusl year's Red Birds overlook and passed Ihe Brooklyns by two games, with the third-place New York Giants 18 games back. Despite the lo^s of Johnny Beazley, Terry Moore, Country Slaughter, Creepy C'respi and probably Howard Pollet, the blokes in the red blazers perhaps have been less effected by the war than any olh- cr big It-ague outfit. and Couker Triplett. Provided Ray Sunders can stand the rigors of National League first basing, Johnny Hopp will be more than acceptable in cenler field. Buster Adams, a ball hawk bal- icd in 107 runs for Ihe Sacramento pennant winners, hit .423 the first month, .309 over a full 178-game schedule. Debs Garms, who led National League bailers in 1040, is available for either the outfield or third base. Dain Clay is up from Houston with a rifle arm, and old Frank Demaree is about just in case. Cardinals Recruit Them But the pitchers are Billy Southworth's ace cards. He has Morton Cooper. Ernie White, Max Lanier, Murry Dickson, Howard Krisl, Harry Gumbert, Bill Beckman and eye popping recruits.

Wee Reese, the Dodgers arc little more than a group of old gentlemen. The Army excused Whitcy Kurowski because of osteomyelitis in the World Series home run hero's arm, so the infield is intact. So in the catching, and there is more pitching than you could shake u slick at.

Lefty Dockins was the kingpin of Ihe Southern Association with a league record of nine shutouts. Blix Donnelly copped 21 games for Sacramento wilh an eurned-run mark of 2.134. Two years ago he broke a Western Association strike- oul record, which had slood 17 years, with 304. The Cardinals recruit them practically as fast us Uncle Sam. This is No. 8 of a series of 12 articles of expert advice for Victory gardeners this year. H is suggested that you clip and save each installment for future reference. Prepared by the U. S. Department of Agriculture for NEA Service Victory gardens don't just grow like Topsy—they have to be cured for und watched over and protected. In other words, lo gel Ihe most out of your garden, you have to hoc and weed und water. Cultivation of a garden should be steady and restrained—not too aggressive. Weeds should be kept under con- Irol by pulling or shallow hoeing Deep cultivulion of vegetables—that is, too much weight on the hoe— should bo avoided in most instance because of the danger of. cutting or disturbing roots that grow near the surface. If allowed to grow uncontrolled, weeds will rob the garden •lanta of moisture und plant food, and will shade them from the needed sunshine. Watering Important As soon as the soil can be worl ed after a rain, it should be thor oughly hoed'to'kill Ihe weeds Ihut luve sprouted and to put the sui ace in a loose, porous condition to absorb the next rain. Weed control s the main object, of course. Gar den specialists and experienced gardeners point out there is no proved benefit from stirring an already cultivaled soil lhal is free of weeds. As all experienced gardeners know, frequent light sprinkling or irrigation of the garden is the wrong way to provide the moisture required by the growing vegetables, if water is needed, Ihe garden should be Ihoroughly and deeply soaked, as by u fairly heavy ruin, and watered again only when the soil shows signs of becoming dry. Proper watering will prove u decided advantage during dry periods but if not done right it may prove injurious. Light sprinkling or irrigation serves to water the roots of shallow-growing weeds, but does not provide enough water for the rows of garden plants.
