o HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Saturday, April 3, 1943 /an Militarism Must Be Knocked Ouf of Germans O" Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZIE What guarantees are our hardworking statesmen going to be able to devise against the whelping o£ another war-mongering Hitler when once we have ended the present conflict? The Nazi fuehrer himself practices wholesale sterilization to prevent perpetuation of elements he doesn't like. That's an idea, but sterilization of entire militaristic nations doesn't seem to fit in with civilized practices. British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, speaking Friday before the Canadian''parliament in Ottawa, gave an answer for one angle of this complicated problem in declaring as regards Germany, iltaly and Japan: "There is only one security for mankind in respect of all.of them: to ensure that they are "totally disarmed and in no position ever to try their strength again." Our own Undersecretary ot State \Velles carried the matter rather deeper in an address the same day :in New York City before the Chamber of Commerce of the State of New York. He said: "In attempting to put an end to war we face a problem that the human race has never yet been able to solve. But of one thing I am perfectly sure: the greatest obstacle to success is defeatism — the assumption that nations are by nature so antagonistic, that foreign peoples are so untrustworthy or that the technical problems of constructing peace machinery are so great that the task is a hopeless one." That seems to invite the further question of whether human nature can be changed. History is likely •to record that the only construc- •tive thing Hitler ever did — unless he cuts his own throat — was to show the world that he could change the chacteristics of virua- •Iy.,the entire youth of a great na- •tion in less than a decade by intensive training. * Recently I have talked with thinking people in various countries on this subject, The concensus seemed to be that similar methods will have to be employed after the war to make the aggressor nations peaceminded. Of course that couldn't be achieved through the ^hammering of propoaganda into un- wliling minds by conquerors. It ^would nave to be done through the medium of Axis nationals who are dseirous of peace — and those people exist. •Forcible propaganda does work wonders at times, and we are now ill' process of administering it in heavy doses to Germany and Italy. I refer to the terrific bombing which, is being carried out, especially against the Nazis. The bombing is likely to prove a boon to humanity in the long run, strange though it seem. It will help to knock toleration of Prussian militarism out of German heads— and Prussian militarism is the real scourge of Europe.. Individual autocrats have come and they have Market Report ST.

New York, obtain the material free. 19.92 19.87 NEW YORK STOCKS Ne%v York, April 3 —(/P)— Utilities and scattered rails moved to new high ground for the year or longer in today's .. stock market while numerous industrials remained on the wrong side of the track. There was little change in the generally favorable war and economic pictures but many customers inclined to convert profits into cash pending more definite signs yesterday's technical stumble, first since March 19, had been completed. The list was spotty at the start and, near the close, trends were notably indefinite. Large blocks of low-priced issues helped put the two-hour volume at around 700,000 shares. Washington By JACK STINNETT Wide World Features Writer Washington — Those who predicted there would be no changes in personnel or policies In the Office of Price Administration when ex- Senator Prentiss M. Brown took over were dead wrong. Just what is hap-ening to personnel hasn't been made public yet, but insiders say that soft-spoken, mild-mannered Mr. Brown has been whittling away at a lot of dead -,\ood, chiefly recruits from the legal profession with which OPA has become overburdened. On the score of policy, the onetime small - town Michigan peninsula lawyer and banker has taken an entirely different tack from that pursued by his predecessor, Leon Henderson. Henderson built OPA and the anti- inflation program with as tough a pair of brass- knuckled fist as have been swung around Washington. Brown continues to swing when he considers it necessary, but so far as Mr. and Mrs. Public is concerned, he tries to pad his fists with feather-beds. "War is going to be tough enough on civilians without adding any unnecessary burdens," he said the other day. "I have instructed the staff of OPA to keep constantly alert to changing conditions and to relax any rationing rules without delay whenever it becomes possible to do so. "Not a single OPA restriction is going to last one minute longer than is necessary," he continued. Those observations followed Brown's orders permitting workers who couldn't get to and from work on B cards to get C cards and the removal of rationing re- structions on tire recapping for passenger cars and light trucks. Adkins Thinks Freight Rate Revision Near Little Rock, April 2 — (tV)~ Governor Adkins expressed belief today the Inetrstate Commerce Commission would order some revision of freight rates beneficial to the south and southwest. "If I am any judge of the situation, there was nothing that hurt our case in the current hearings," Adkins said upon his return from Washington where final hearings on the general freight rale investigation arc being conducted. "I may be loo optimistic, but 1 think we are going to get some sort of adjusmtent. I think the ICC will sec the justice of our claims." The chief executive said the hearings probably would be concluded today but that no decision would be handed down until August or September. Adkins also was optimistic about eventual completion of the government power plant on Lake Catherine and reopening of the Pike county diamond mines. He said government officials told him there was little likelihood the pUmt would be completed in the immediate future but that Power Director J. A. Krug assured him there was no doubt but that it would be finished eventually. "Mr. Krug said he could not conceive of them not going through with it at some future date," Adkins said. "He told me all the investigation showed that with the cheap gas rates in south Arkansas energy can be generated just as cheaply there as anywhere in the United States." The governor said Secretary Ickes and the Bureau of Mines were sympatetic to his arguments for reopening of the diamond mines but he declined to predict when actual mining might be started. Adkins plans to start a spring vacation tomorrow and said he did not know when he would return to his office. He declined to say where he was going.

Southern Association Starts Training for 1943 Season WANT TO SELL YOUR HOUSE? Use The Classified . . . It's Direct If you have property you want to sell or rent, do it the effective way . . . through the HOPE STAR classified section. Rates are low ... results big! HOPE STAR gone, but Prussianism has just kept running along. The Allies had a chance to knock it out in the last war, but quit as soon as the Germans yelled "Kamerad," thereby saving the fatherland from the ravages of conflict. The German civilians were hungry, but they never knew what bombing or snelUire was like. Had they experienced the frightfulness which their armies inflicted on the invaded countries, perhaps they wouldn't have been so quick to follow Hitler and the Prussian military machine into a fresh aggression. This time the Allied nations are set to carry the war through to unconditional surrender. They want no armistice, such as we had before. Because he is a former Senator only a few months out of office and was popular with many members of Congress. Brown has probably heard more complaints of his agency than any other wartime executive. For that reason, he's probably closer to civilian reaction than any other person in a similar position in Washington. He is naturally a kindly and sympathetic person, and it's a safe bet that he will try to carry out his ban on "unnecessary burdens." On the other hand, Brown has demonstrated that in his present job those mild manners of his go only so far. About a month ago, in one of his rare public addresses, he took the hide off his old colleagues in Congress, charging them with impeding the war effort by "back-biting and under-the - table talk." He scored several pending bills which he said would pierce the price ceilings and break down the whole anti - inflation program, and whipped into the bituminous coal industry situation with the declaration: "There rnust be no strike and there must be no compromise." Flashes of Life By The Associated Press Irritating Warsaw, N. Y. — The Morris Sheldon family, whose house lies at the foot of a long, steep hill here, is looking for a safer residence.

Stanley 1.00 Alford Vines 1.00 By PHIL CLARKE & Atlanta, Ga., April 2 — W)— That creaking you hear is not the old garden gate — it's a sprinkling of Southern Association faithfuls limbering up for another wartime season of baseball. AH around the circuit, with the exception of New Orleans (the Pels start practice Monday*, they've knocked the lid off a tardy training season, but managers have shelved the crying towels — the emphasis this year is on optimism. Seven of the clubs arc training in their own parks, while Nashville's Vols jumped south to Macon, a., to work out their kinks. They all look for a fair season despite crimps in every roster. There are no holdout worries at jittlc Rock, where Manager Buck rauselt hopes to lead his Travel ers to a repeat performance for he pennant. Only three players inswered Buck's first call, but other arrivals are expected to bring .he squad to full strength by Monday or Tuesday. Outfielder Ben antrell and Infielder Freddie Hancock, both from last year's champs, are already on hand and .vorking off excess poundage. Pitcher Chuck Hawlcy, also a regular, rounded out the first day trio but Hurler Frank Papish is expected today to keep Hawley company. Only one daily session is planned by the Rock's pilot. Sparky Olson has the welcome mat out for eight Chattanooga Lookouts expected today to join the nine who donned uniforms yesterday at Engel Stadium. At Memphis, a lanky pitcher with a fireball delivery brought cheer to genial Doc Prothro, Chick manager. The newcomer, Homer Spragins from Mississippi State College, showed not only a fast ball but also good control and change of pace. Fourteen Chicks have joined the fold, including five pitchers. More are cpxected today. Larry Gilbert's Nashville vols continued preliminary workouts at Macon with a couple of long-distance clouters showing well. Ray Hamrick lifted the horsehide some 425 feet over the wall while Ed Sauer, brother of Hank Sauer ot the Birmingham Barons of two years ago, also connected for long drives. Fifteen Birmingham Barons jogged through brisk workouts with the emphasis on butting. Manager Johnny Riddle announced that Cat. cher Johnny Conway, sold to Cincinnati last fall, is being returned to Birmingham on option and is due in camp sometime this week. He will replace Joe Just, veteran backsop, who is expected to remain at his job in Milwaukee. But Zack Schuessler, an old timer on the mound, is going to work end also play ball. Schuessler, who tossed for Birmingham in 1941, signed a contract to pitch in home | games and on week-ends when it is | possible for him to make out-of- i town trips and. not miss his war | work. Catcher - Manager Buddy Lewis worked out on the receiving end as a pair of Knoxville pitchers un- limbred at the Smokies' park. In addition to Southpaw Stan Ogden and Righthander Bob Finlcy, Catcher - outfielder Andy Simoneck also was on hand for initial warm- ups. Full-team drills are expected to start Monday. Atlanta's Crackers, under their new manager Al Lielz, are building infield hopes around Charlie Clock, who showed sparks of brilliance around the keystone sack in opening drills at Ponce de Leon park. Rookies are expected to patch up the gaps in the Crackers' roster although the Atlanlans may boast of the loop's powerhouse outfield with regulars Lindsay Deal and Marshall Mauldni already in camp and Leon -Treadaway, Rookie standout, available for play. Another note of cheer came to Cracker bosses when Elmer (Pep) Rambert, ace nioundsmun, signed for another season. Four others hurlers are taking luins in opening workouts.

Arkansas Fuel Oil Company's Luzcnia Creek No. 2 N. of the C of section 9-15-2-1 which flowed last week to become the 32nd producer for the field, is being swabbed in order to increase the flow, which did not come up to expectations of officials.
