Quile Ihc contrary. This gcnclleman is in a mood lo congratulate that unseen army of Washington bureaucrats for having at long last done something for the comforl and peace of mind of the male citizen. If I am long about getting around to the point of this discourse you will appreciate it when I finally do —it is. a mailer of pins. For a genera lion or more our American manufacturers have been doing up men's new shirts with a collection ot pins that made the average male feel as unsafe as a soldier in a tank full of flying rivets. My own score card s'lows that a new shirt used to average from eleven to thirteen pins—frequently hidden in the most outrageous places. You would complete your pin-extracting job, gel inlo a sleeve —and find the olher sleeve was blocked by one you overlooked. Or, you gol inlo bolh sleeves only to find that a missing pin had your shirt-tail cocked up like a rabbit's. But the Washington bureaucrats, under the lash of war, have changed all that. My friend says he look home a Draft Boards to Reclassify Men For Work, Army —Washington Washington, March 31 — (A') —Tens of thousands were brought closer to military service today under a seven-point, semi-compulsory man power action designed primarily to relieve a shortage ot 50,000 dairy workers but capable of being extended to all agriculture and csscn- tial industry. The program, announced by President Roosevelt laic yesterday, hinted broadly at the possible drafting of farm experienced men now deferred because of age or minor physical disabilities if they refuse dairying jobs. It also changed the system of releasing soldiers 38 years or older so that in the future they can be chanccled into and kelp at jobs in cssciuial industry and agriculture, subject to recall by the Army upon request of the War Manpower Com mission.

Arkansas Post War Road Plan Gets U. S. Aid Little Rock, March 31 — (/I 1 ) — State and federal highway officials began outlining procedure loday for processing plans and surveys for a gigantic post - war highway construction plan in Arkansas. Meeting with Highway Department officials were J. A. Elliotl, Fort Worth, Texas, district engineer for the Public Roads Administration. and John M. Page, chief PRA engineer for Arkansas. Highway Director W. W. Mitchell said the construction program would be ready lo go as soon as Ihc war was over "lo lake up the slack of post-war unemployment." "Whal we hope to do by such a program is to eliminate the necessity for a repetition of the WPA and other emergency organizations." Mitchell said. "We believe the program will be sufficiently large to provide employment for alt who need it." The highway director said the amount of money which would be spent would depend upon congressional appropriations. "They're talking now of a $3,0(10,- coming as draft boards were sup- osed to begin tomorrow the rcclas- sification of registrants still in non- deferable jobs.gave emphasis lo his recent declaration he would seek to avoid direct and compulsory job-control as long as possible. The program gave dairy workers a preferred clami on draft deferment exceeding even that recently established for essential farm workers generally, which resulted n such a strong back-to-the-farm novomcnt that- some war plants ire complaining of losing workers. But it also provides experienced lormcr dairy workers between 18 ind 28 who have been rejected )y the army for physical disability liighl, if the refuse lo return to dairy work, bo put up for recon- ideration and acceptance for limited service. Furthermore, it provides if the dairy workers shortage is not "adequately" relieved otherwise, dairy workers who have taken jobs in industry will be "urged" by the draft boards lo return to dairying. "It'is not deemed wise that this be done at Ihis time because within Ihe last ten clays there has been a back-lo-llic-farm movement due to the tydings amendment (giving farmers a preferred draft dcfcr- mentstalusi" said a memorandum supplied by the president. Two of the program's seven points provide for former dairy workers above 38-ycars — including those over 45 and therefore exempt from the draft — to be "urgsd" lo return to dairying in areas where such workers arc Marion Suspect Held In Earlc Bank Holdup Marion, Match 31 — (/I 1 ) —Waier Eden, 32, was charged with rob- jery itnd two counts of assault with nlcnl to kill yesterday in conncc- ion with the $3,200 robbery of an Sarlc, Ark., bank Monday when .wo bank employes were slugged and stabbed. Sheriff Cecil Goodwin, who described Eden as well known as a Basketball referee in Eastern Ar- umsas, said he denied knowledge f Ihe robbery or attacks on Mrs. Vlary French Fullwood, bank cashier, and Tom Woolridgc, Negro porter. Mrs. Fullwood was struck over the right car and cut on her throat and neck. Woolridgc was struck on the head and stabbed twice in the chest. Eden was arcslcd on a Memphis bound bus soon after a robber, armed with a knife and a screwdriver. He subdued Mrs. Fullwood and Woolridgc and escaped with S3,200 from the Earl Banking Company. Goodwin said all bul about $20 of the money had been recovered. He said currency was found in Eden's shoes, socks and trouscr cuffs when he was arrested and thai more than $1,500 was found on the bus in a lunch sack. Five Youths Kidnap, Rob Chicago Trio Chicago, March 31 — (/I 1 ) -- Two youths and a girl, members of wealthy, socially prominent families, were kidnaped and robbed early today by five young toughs, three of whom, Police Chief Frank Taffin of Lake Forest said, had been captured by police and identified by the girl as among the abductors. Victims of Ihe kidnaping who A'ore released as police from Ihe Indiana lo the Wisconsin stale lines, entered the hunt were: Helen Priebc, 18, heiress to Ihc bulk of an $800,000 coffee fortune.

The kidnaping occurred as Armour was driving to Lake Forest from Chicago where the young people had attended a the- alcr and night club. Armour's account of the episode spreading spring thaw has brought still worse weather conditions lo the long Russian front and the sov icl midday communique today again opened with its monotonous keynote: "No essential changes occurred on the fronts."

Added to Ihis is more than $1,000,000 in unspent federal funds from allocations for 1941, 1942 and 1943. Mitchell said the post - war program would fall into two caetgor- ies — projects on strategic ncl works whicfe require advanced engineering and will be financed wilh combined federal - slale funds and those on the state highways which ,vill be financed with strictly state funds. Examples of advanced engineering jobs are proposed by - passes around Metropolitan areas such as n West Memphis, North Litlle Rock, Fort Smith and Pine Bluff. The highway director said actual blue-print work for the post - war jobs would starl as soon as defense access road work is tapered off. Approximately $2,000,000 worth of access roads have been built in Arkansas since the war program slarlcd.

Armour was ordered lo sit in Ihc front seal with the driver while Miss Pricbc sal in back with the others. One of the loughs held a pistol against the back of Armour's neck and warned, "if you make a move we'll blow your head off."

Air Base in Southern Tunisia, March 30 —(Delayed) —(/I 1 )— American fighter pilots destroyed 10 German planes loday, raising lo 42 the victory score tallied by U. S. Spitfires and Warhawks since March 21 when the latest aerial offensive began. Four olher enemy fighters were cited as probably destroyed in a scries of blazing battles in which American superiority in number of planes and flying- skill dcallh heavy blows to the waning Axis air strength. Setting the pace again were the Warhawks, which destroyed eight today and seven yesterday and in Ihc 'last six days have accounted for 21 besides many others damaged. Major Lovi R. Chase, 2:i-yc:ir-nld ace, of Cm-Hand, N. Y.. lengthened his victory string to six by destroying a German Mcsserschmill 109. Four uf the cighl planes blasted by the Warhawks were trapped in a surprise raid on a German airport, duplicating yesterday's feat when Warhawks pulled the same trick with Ihe same result.

Nip Destroyer Believed Sunk By U. S.

It is believed that any attempt lo deliver supplcis failed," G c n. Douglas MacArlhur's headquarters said, referring to the exploit, which occurred in Ihc area where Allied fliers destroyed a 22 - ship Japanese convoy early in March. Capt. Frederick Weschc, of Roselle, N. J., pilot of the Fortress in yesterday's attack, said the enemy warship suffered a hit on the stern, and later reports of lifeboats spotted in the vicinity indicated that the destroyer had been sunk. Other Allied warplancs pounded the Japanese bases at Lao, Sala- maua and Finschhafen in New Guinea, and dropped 1,000 - pound bombs on the enemy base at Gas- nmata. New Britain. A single Allied reconnaissance plane, flying over the Bismarck sea between New Guinea and New Britain, was reported to have shcil clown four of nine Japanese planes in a running bailie. The Allied plane returned safely lo its base.

The appropriation had been recommended by a sub - committee which said construction of the canal from the St. Johns river cross Florida to the Gulf of Mexico would help relieve the eastern petroleum shortage. In turning down the subcommit- lee's recommendation, the full committee said the project "cannot be looked to for any allevia- ion of the fuel oil or gasoline shortage in the eastern seaboard area 'or many months to come," and that pipelines already built or bc- ng constructed, supplementing ,ank cars and a small amount of water transportation, "will take care of the eastern seaboard area during the next winter in a normal way." The bill as reported carries $03,032.083 for civil functions of the department for the year starting next July 1, in addition to rcappropria- tions if $4,900,000. Larger items recommended include $35,700,000 for maintenance and improvement of river a n d harbor projects, $14.000,000 for Mississippi river flood control work and $8,724.000 for the Panama canal, mostly for maintenance and opera ion. For general flood control work the committee recommended only a token appropriation of $100, with the explanation prosecution of Ihis peace - time program must await the war's end, when il, would provide a "reservoir of worthwhile projects" for which plans and specifications are to be made with funds already available. These projects, the committee said, will help "cushion the readjustment from war lo normal conditions." The total in Ihc bill was $280.1)06,143 less than last year's appropriations and $28,257 below budget estimates for this year.

Reports from the front said the Americans had finally crossed the German minefields and had cap- lured 200 prisoners. > Montgomery's men, wiping out enemy units in hurriedly thrown up trenches and other defenses, were compelling Rommel to confine his retreat almost entirely to the coastal highway, flanked by Ihe sea at a distance of about five miles on the east and desert and marshes on the west. (Algiers radio broadcasts said the British navy was continuing to harass the Axis retreat by pouring shells into Ihe coaslal road.) The firsl 40 miles of Rommel's route toward Sfax, some 70 miles up the coast, were barren sand, and each mile pushed the beaten Germans and Italians into a narrowing corridor. i ,tl A traffic policeman at the same | mal mineral rights must accom- interscction.
