HOPt STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS , April 2, 1943 t> Hies May Have to Take Italy Before Tackling Nazis Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Writt;en Today and . Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeVVITT MacKENZIE Way back last Armistice Day Britain's colorful prime minister, Winston Churchill, coined that expressive phrase "the underbelly of the Axis" having special reference Jo Italy. * >Then somebody came along and made it the "soft underbelly of the Axis," without specifying whether this applied to the country or was poking a sly finger into the fatness of Mussolini. Probably it referred to Italy, because II Duce long ago ceased to inspire even jokes. Irl any event, the expression takes on special significance these days when we hear so much about a possible Allied invasion of Italy after the campaign in Tunisia has been concluded. The Tunisian incubator hasn't yet hatched its chickens, and we shall be smart not to count them before they're out of their shells, but we are warranted in looking ahead. Italy is without doubt a "soft spot in the Axis. Many Italians are unwilling participators in a war to support Hitlerian barbarism which they abhor. Their hearts aren't in the effort and there long have.been signs that they would be glad to quit if they could. I dare say many of them would welcome an Allied invasion if it could be achieved without too much bloodshed and destruction. , So Italy is soft because of this. And it's soft because of Mussolini's disastrous leadership, which has been made worse by the exactions of his Nazi master. It certainly invites invasion, providing that wouldn't interfere with an invasion ol western France if that were feasible. How much would it hurt Hitler— for he is" our number one enemy— if the Allies overran Italy? Well, it wouldn't help us get at the all highest direct, for the Alps across Italy's northern border form a tough barrier. To be sure, Hannibal in 218 B.C. took an Army — including elephants, one of which he may have ridden — through what we know as little St. Bernard pass into Italy. But it isn't being done so much these days. However, Italy (with Sicily) is the base which has enabled the - Nazi chief to make disastrous war in Nothern Africa. And it is pos•session of Italy which has made it possible for him to block the Mediterranean routes, thereby forcing both the United States and Britain to send their ships for the east ' cjear around South Africa — a heart - breaking long - haul. From Italy, too, the Axis has been able to operate against Yugoslavia and Greece and the islands of the Aegean. In short, it is through Italy that Hitler came mighty close to gaining complete -control of the Mediterranean theatre and thereby winning the war. Apart from these advantages, Mussolini has been bowing his neck to the yoke and sending great numbers of Italians into Germany to work in the fuehrer's fields and factories. The Nazis also have been getting troops, war supplies and much food from their unwilling ally. And of course the Italian navy and air force would go by the board. When the Allies have finished off the Axis in Africa they will have a feady - made invasion force al- Teady in northern Tunisia, just across from Sicily. There are at least a half million Allied troops in that theater with much equipment and a great air force which could strike easily at Italian territory. Ships and other equipment would be brought from Britain. We need an invasion of France to beat Hitler without a long drawnout war, but next to that the knoctung out of Italy would be a highly important victory. Market Report ST.

April 2 (fP) — Presidential veto of the Bankhead bill unsettled grain trading today, but the market showed no tendency to break on the action. The veto was expected during early trading and when the news confirmed previous rumors prices tended to move higher. Wheat was down about a cent in the first hour on selling by local traders. When the news of the veto failed to bring in much selling, however, traders joined with commission houses on the buying side and the bread cereal raillied from the day's lows. Other grains followed wheat. At the close wheat was 1-4—1-2 lower, May $1.45 3-8 — 1-2, July $1.45 3-4—5-8, corn remained unchanged at ceilings, May $1.01, oats dropped 3-8—1-2 and rye was off 1-2—3-4.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York, April 2 — (iP) — Customers collected more profits in stocks today and, despite substantial resistance by a handful of rails and industrials, the market suffered its first average setback since March 19. Cheering to bullish contingents was the fact that offerings never were urgent and declines generally restricted to fractions with isolated losses of 1 to 2. Extreme recessions, witnessed around midday, were rdeuced in the majority of instances near the close. Scattered plus signs were in evidence when the final gong sounded. Dealings were slow at itervals but lively periods put the turnover at around 1,700,000 shares. POULTRY AND PRODUCE Chicago, April 2 — (/P) — Poultry, live 10 trucks, firm; market unchanged.

Williams rules to day. The opinion went to Dr. Clarenne Koch, Little Rock, secretary of the dental board. Williams said a 1921 act authorized the governor to make appointments to the board upon recommendation of the dental association. "It is clear, beyond controversy, that an appointment without the recommendation of the Arkansas Dental Association is beyond the power of the governor and without effect," the attorney general said. Adkins said he had appointed Dr. Rushing at the request of several dental leaders and would confer with association officials on the matter in a few days. In an opinion to Greene County Rpresentative Tony Farley, Beech Grove, Williams held void a 1943 act requiring counties in the 12th chancery district to reimburse former Chancellor J. F. Gautney, Jonesboro, for $2,00 expenses incurred while h e was chancellor in 1941.42. The measure was invalid, Williams said, because it violated a constitutional prohibition against local legislation and atlempled to create obligations retroactively. Williams held in an opinion to G. C. Floyd, educalion deparlmenl finance director, that the 1943 legislature acted without constitutional authority in passing act 305 authorizing the claims commission to reimburse an individual for $156.21 from the permanent school fund. The claim was based on purchase from the state of a tract of land to which title failed. Proceeds from the sale went into the permanent school fund. Williams said the constitution prohibited diversion of public school moneys.

The "Little Jack Horner" who sat in a corner was no more fictional character of nursery - rhyme fame, but a very real man who knew which pie held the biggest plum. According to an tiem in the London Star, the story of Jack Horner dates back to the time of Thomas Cromwell's dissolution of the monasteries furing the 16th century. At this time, the abbots of Glastonbury, who owned the manor of Mells, tried to forestall Cromwell by surrenderning title deeds of all the abbey's manors into Henry Vlll's own hand. To ensure their safety, they hid the deeds in a pie and entrusted it to Jack Horner, at that time steward to the abbot, for safe delivery. During the journey, Jack Horner is reputed to have "put in his thumb and pulled out a plum," the title deed of the manor of Mells, which he kept for himself.

Receipes for Maintaining World Stability Washington, April 2 — (if) —Aluminum coins, 25 pounds of tobacco a year for everybody, a new climate for England and a universal language are among the recipes received by Senators from their constituents for restoring and maintaining world stability. The man who thought England's climate needed changing explained that March lasts 12 months a year there. The same writer had a more serious suggestion. He proposed that after Victory the United Stales negotiate lo take over some large area with great productive possibilities, develop it thoroughly, build roads and schools and industries, then 1 give its people independence when the improvcmcts were finished and the cosl had been returned. Another man thought arrangements should be made to dish out vitamins regularly to everybody in the world. Scornful of gold as a medium of exchange, he proposed dumping the world's supply "at least 10 miles deep" in the ocean and using aluminum coins. A Denver man thought Denver would be a good seat for an International Congress which w o u 1 d rule ihe world, ad an Ohioan called for an Internalipnal FBI. A precarious future with aerial pirates roaming the sky was foreseen by a New Yorker. "Merchants of Death," he predicted, will peddle the planes and bombs left over from the war to barbaric races. "The possibility of gangs of nil- bandits threatening and blackmailing cities; villages and manufacturing plants with fire, gas and bacteria bombing must be recognized," he warned. "Congratulations to you and your confederates," wrote a high school youth lo one of the co - authors of a pending post - war proposal. It was all in the day's work for the student — dozens of his classmates also wrote the Senator, apparently as a civic assignment. There were some violent dissenters. The one, for instance, whose letter began "Dar Wolf - in - a- Lamb's-Skin Senator:". Retail Training Courses to Be Offered Here James H.

Nazis Trying to Cover Up Sabotage By JAMES KING London, April 2 —f/Tj— German radio reports about the activity of British parachute troop's in Denmark and Norway, while interesting as an admission that the British have their own men operating in those countries, were regarded by some observers today as a Nazi attempt to cover up "increasing native sabotage and unrest within the countries and to allow imposi- ] lion of even sharper restrictions. For the second lime in five weeks the German - controlled Freisland radio station last night told how armed British chutists blew up a factory in Denmark, and the announcer complained of "the collaboration of the Danes." The station's broadcasts were heard here by the British Broadcasting Corporation. (In New York the Colubmia Broadcasting System hist night recorded a German radio assertion that "things have got to such a Flashes of Life By The Associated Press Artless Answer Washington — Washington Post staff writer Chandler Brossard walked around the Corcoran Art Gallery, seeking to see how many art lovers agreed with the judges in giving Henry Mattson's "Rocks" first place in recent biennial competition.

Civilian Draft Measure Is Sidetracked Washington. April 2 -—(/PI— Legislation to draft men and women civilians into war production joqs was shunted to a congressional side track ioday — apparently to await a green lighl from President Roosevelt — amid official indications that induction of fathers into military service will start in about three months. While hearings continued on the controversial Austin -. Wadsworth natonal service bill, first submitted lo a public test more than a month ago, members of the senate military committee said a decision on the measure likely would be cle- laccl at least another month. By that time, authoritative sources said, the White House is expected to iiave some definite information on the workings of the 48 - hour work • week placed in effect in critical labor areas yesterday, and of the recent directive designed to push non - essential workers into war jobs or military service. Thonands of draft • deferred falhcrs saw in a statement of Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershcy a likelihood many of them will be in military service before fan. Hershcy acknowledged at a press conference that drafting of fathers is likely to begin aboul July 1 — despile his "scntmicnlal" desire to postpone their induction as long as possible. He said no specific draft classification changes have been ordered thus far, but report indicated at least some "paper shifting" to clear up other clases before drafting falhers was under consideraloin. Scrap Drive in Hempstead Gets Praise Camp Chaffce, Ark., April 1—An estimated (3,G80,000 pounds of metal has moved ol the slcel mills from western Arkansas as a result of the Army scrap drive carried out by Camp Chaffce soldier crews, Colonel Charles J.

"Credit for this success goes lo Ihe public whose co- opcrallon and concern has been oul- slanding. Officers in charge of crows have reported only the high- esl praise for the work of county officials and individuals who have interested Ihcmsclvcs in the drive.
