April fool? Well, it could be, just > keep Herr Hitler's nerves hop- f, ping, but it encourages the ex- f^pectation that a United Nations invasion of Western Europe may ^come before long. This is bolstered ^iby the excellent Allied progress in 'u the Tunisian campaign, which must '^be concluded, or at least clinched, ^before any major invasion can be Attempted. t .Expectation also is fostered by -the fierce aerial bombardment of •j.f Germany and occupied territory— *]lan essential preliminary to an in- ^vasion of Western Europe. , Now of course only the Allied high command can say where an ^ invasion may strike. Still, without trying to read the command's mind, it's reasonable to expect L. ^some move as soon as the African campaign is "sewed up, since Hitter can't be allwoed a free hand ; to attack Russia when the good '• weather arrives. Also there seem to be three possibilities for major invasion, and the defensive prepar- 'ations of the Nazis show that they agree with this estimate. Those ,three places are: 1. The French coast from the neighborhood of Boulogne and Calais, on the narrow part of the 'channel, down past the mouth of the Somme to Dieppe. The Allies probably would strike in several places simultaneously and develop ' those which seemed profitable. 'They also might make other attacks as far north as Norway, I*- chiefly for divertive purposes.

As has been emphasized in this column, an invasion from the English channel would produce perhaps the most terrible battle of history, with all three fighting arms—land, air and water—participating. Cer- ainly it would be the most dangerous legitimate military operation which could be undertaken. 2. Italy and the great islands of Sicily and Sardini?, together with French Corsica which the Italians occupy. Compared wtih the French coast this would indeed be soft, for Italy's heart isn't with the Axis. Main resistance presumably would come from the German forces which occupy the country. In this connection the diplomatic correspondent of Reynolds News, n London, has staled categorically :hat the Nazis have taken over con- :rol of the Italian fleet. It will be used partly for defense against invasion and partly for offensive actions. The Italians will man the ships and the Germans will give the orders, according to the report. 3. Greece, together wilh Greet and the islands of the Aegean, possibly in conjunction with an invasion of the Balkans by Turkey. Here again the Germans smell Irouble. Reporls from Ankara say the Hillerites are nervous over developments in the Mediterranean, and are sending troops into that theater. The fortifications of the strategic Greek port of Salonika are said to have been heavily reinforced, and Gestapo agents have been sent to the Axis - occupied Greek islands lo apprehend suspects among the residents.

S.-Soviet Talks on Post War Planned Washington, March 31 —(/I 1 )— A Russian-American conference on current and postwar issues was projected by President Roosevelt today into thc very near future. Where and when thc conversations will take place, and who the principals will be, were not disclosed. Withholding all specific in formation at a press conference ycserday. Mr. Roosevelt turned aside with noncommital answers questions designed to bring out whether he expected Premier Stalin or Foreign Commissar Molotov to come to Ihis country. But he made it clear he and Anthony Eden, in consultations which ended yesterday, had cut thc pattern for additional talks among various members of thc United Nations. Puzzlement at what they called comparative public apathy toward post war problems was expressed by some members of a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee as they assembled lo begin consideration of a half dozen proposals for collective action by Ihe Unilcd Na lions. While sponsors of some of the proposals said their mail was increasing, Senator George (D - Ga.) told reporters he hardly knew what to make of the fact that despite wide newspaper and radio discussion he had received fewer than a do/.cn leltcrs about thc problems involved. Another member of thc subcom millec, Democratic Leader Barklcy of Kentucky, said he had rcceivcc only aboul 20 lellcrs and ventured the observation thc public doesn'l seem grcally excited about the questions. On the other hand, Senator Bur- Ion (R Ohio.) one of four sponsors of a resolution calling on this gov- lions for closer co-opration in war and peace, said he was receiving upwards of 100 letlers daily. "The sentiment expressed in those letters is 10 to 1 in favor of our proposal," Burlon said. In a radio address last night, Senator Ball (RMinn.1, one of the sponsors of the resolution, said il seems inevitable, that the economic and political weight of the United Stales will be brought to bear on a postwar world and argued that the Senate ought to commit itself now to a strong policy of collaboration. The president said he and Foreign Secretary Eden had reached entire agreement on everything that might be described as current political and military affairs, and other questions arising out of the war and related lo the present and future. He hoped and expected, he added, that talks along semilar lines would be begun with Russia in the very near future, as well as with others of thc United Nations.

Davis' Status On Farm Prices Still Undefined By OVID A. MARTIN Washington, March 31 — f/P) — Thc question of whether Chester C. Davis, the new food administrator, is to have full authority over farm prices remained unanswered today as his assistants puzzled over a problem posed by congressional refusal to vote $100,000,000 for war crop incentive payments. Heads of four national farm organizations, accompanied by Davis and Secretary of Agriculture Wickard, went to the White House yesterday in the hope of getting President Roosevelt to place control of 'arm prices in the new adminis- ralor's hands. They came away, they said, within t a commitment, but with thc mprcssion that decisions on prices vould continue to be made in icgotialions among Ihe Office of :j ricc Administration, the food ad- ninistration and the office of eco- lomic stabilization. Two of thc farm leaders, Edward A. O'Neal, president of thc American Farm Bureau Federation, and Albcrl S. Goss, master of thc National Grange, contend Davis must have, full control over farm prices if he is lo succeed. They said Secrclary Wickard :aekcd sufficicnl powers in thc price lield. Thc price control question was a pressing one at thc Agriculture Department. Officials of thc food production administration, an agency transferred from Wickard to Davis by the president, are debating steps to provide farmers greater returns for such vital crops as soybeans and peanuts for vcgc> tables oil, potalocs, dry beans and peas, sugar bets, and canning crops. Secrclary Wickard had offered farmers $100,000,000 in incentive payments for such crops, but the farm organizations and the congressional farm bloc successfully opposed the program, contending il subjected farmers to government subsidies at a time when consumers were financially able to pay higher prices. Failure to get the incentive funds raised tiie question of whether the food administrator should take steps to get higher price ceilings on these war crops. After leaving the While House conference, the farm leaders said they had sought to raise thc price question with Mr. Roosevelt but that he did not discuss it. The president was asked at a press conference later if the farm organization heads had sought lo find out whether Davis had full control over farm prices. program of thc afternoon was Victory Gardens for the farm family. The discussion was led by Mr. Earl J. Allen. Horticulturist Spc cialist of the Extension Service. The second District Meeting was held al thc Union Grove Church, Union Grove and Marlbrook Clubs serving as hostess. Thc meeting MOP Official IsKiwanis Speaker . Joe Wcisingcr, formerly of Hope, but now traveling passenger agent foe the Missouri Pacific Linos, was the speaker at today's Kiwanis luncheon at the Henry Hotel. He stated that the Missouri Pacific contributes largely to Hope's Inisl- ness, having a monthly payroll of around $12,500, and paying state, countv, school and other local taxes of $27,1G7.50 in 19-12. Mr. Weisinger stated that during Hie past ten years rates have been reduced one half in some eases. Prior to 1933 all roads had a rale of ,'i.(ic per mile, and now it is possible to take a round trip in a couch for l.Bc per mile. Hates in Pullmans or parlor cars arc higher. He explained with ilustrations the comforts that can be had by riding in various pullman accommodations —from the drawing room to the upper berth, which is the cheapest of all pullman accommodations.

Arkansas is "in pretty good shape," but does have a farm labor shortage because of the draft and shifts to war indus- lires. He said that he believed agricultural extension agents and school officials would help work out a solution, perhaps by dismissing school children 30 days early to help on farms. "Arkansas is in the best shape it's been in its history," he aid. "It is bet from the point of view of agriculture, finance and in every other way.
