WASHBURN Germany Braces for Invasion Gardens, Chickens—and Trouble The surest signal that our forces arc preparing to invade ^Europe proper this spring comes from the continent. ^~ ~ * J German propagandists crowd Ihe radio with boasts thai the English Channel and Dutch coasts have been made impregnable with forts and artillery. Marshal Pctain, aged tool of Berlin, last nighl included Americans as well as British in his denunciation of "enemies who have attacked Franco." His refcrelicc was to a tremendous raid of American bombers on the Renault motor plant just outside Paris. But the Compensation Case Favors Lumber Mills Little Rock, April 5 (/!')— The supreme court held today in a fail-caching decision affecting Arkansas' lumber industry that independent contractors rather than lumber Companies were liable for unemployment compensation benefits to limber cutters not working directly for the companies. The ruling set aise a Pulaski circuit court holding thai the Crossett dumber Company was liable foe 'unemployment, compensation bcnc- flis to 3, r > timber cullers working for independent contractors who were temporarily thrown out of employment during a 19-10 strike at the Crossctl plant. , The court held Ihe workmen were entitled to recover the amount of their claims Luke Arnctt attorney for the employment security division, said benefits would be assessed against accounts of the con- factor. The tribunal reviewed the contract between the lumber company and the logging contracotrs for supplying timber to the mill's big plant at Crossett and said: ,-*. "It appears to us that the evi- '-ctancc is wholly undisputed thai the contractors were in fact and in law independent; that they hired and discharged their own em- ployes; that they paid them; that cither the contractors of tho men ""\irnisncd their own equipment; that the men were paid by the contractors on a 'piece' basis." The supreme court said the 1941 unemployment compensation act was founded upon the employer- •-jmployc relationship and that "nowhere in the act is there lo be found anything lo indicate a legislative intent to destroy Ihc independent contractor concept of existing law, or to subject lo terms any Cither relation than that of master .ind servant or employer and em- ploye." Arnett said the same issued was involved in several other cases affecting major Soulh Arkansas Lum- Jier companies pending before the .laims referee, industrial board and spuremc court and that today's decision may have decided them. In a dissenting opinion Associate Justice li. W. Robins .said he dis- ^jgreed with the majority holding that ihe l!)41 unemployment compensation law applied to the Crossett and oilier cases which were pending at the time the law was unacted. He contended the 19:57 •und 193!) compensation laws did .lot apply to such cases. Circuit courts have no right lo weight the evidence in workmen's conipcnstaion appeal eases, the supreme court held in reversing ^jranl circuit court. Slorgin .1". Smith an employee of J. L. Williams and Sons, Inc., was injured Oct. 29, 1941 and filed a claim with the workmen's compensation commission for benefits for ^alleged loss of sighl in his lefl eye. 'flic commission denied the claim but on appeal grant circuit court found lie had lot GO per cent of vision and held the lumbermen's reciprocal insurance exchange, surety for the company, was liable "or benefits. "The circuit court cannot go into the question of the weight of the evidence," the Supreme Court said. "The only issue confided by the (workmen's compensation) act to _jts determination is whether there clear intent of his speech was to help Germany prepare against an Allied invasion by inciting the French people to anger against Americans as well as the English. But the most vital piece of news pointing to German expectation of Standard Meat Prices Are Set tor the Nation —Washington By IRVING PERLMETER Washington, April 5 —(A 1 )— OPA an invision is Ihis: Former French Premiers Daladier and Blum, and former Allied Generalissimo Gamc- lin, have been removed from France and placed in German prisons. So il is obvious that Germany believes the Allies will make their thrust this spring, and believes, loo, the French people will attempt to rise lo the Allies' aid. For Ihis reason such leaders as Daladicr, Blum and General Gamclin had to be removed to German soil—in an attempt lo destroy Ihc personalities a r o u n d whom liberty-loving Frenchmen would be expected to rally. This is Ihe news from Ihc enemy's side—and il gives so clear a picture we hardly need any official statement from our own side to tell us lhal Ihc gcrat hour is drawing near. -K * * When I wrote the other day that all these spring Victory Gardens were creating a multitude of problems 1 didn't tell you the halt of it.

Similar prices on retail pork cuts went into cffccl on April 1. Today's standardization of lop pirccs by zones was designed by the Office of Price Administration to help restore order in retail meat distribution, upset for months by shortages, prices rules that varied from store lo store, alleged black-markets for sale of illegal meat at illegal prices, and other difficulties. Wiping oul Ihc store-by- store meat price maximums which formerly permitted any establishment to charge its highcsl price of March, 1942, the new aclion set down in cents-perpound the price of sirloin in Detroit, hamburger in New York, veal cutlets in San Francisco, and so on for each grade of 102 culs of beef, veal, lamb and mutton in each on 12 zones. These zones arc identical with the pork zones, except that the midwcstcrn oilier cuts. The meats cuts arc all 4 and 4-A zones are combined for other cuts.

Wisconsin to Return Civil War Flags Madison, Wis., April 5 —(If) —Wisconsin .has decided to let bygones be bygones. In effect, wiping out the Mason Dixon line as far as Badger residents arc concerned, the state legislature has ordered returned to Southern stales six of 13 battle flags captured by Wisconsin troops during the Civil War. The others would be sent back, too, except that they are so tattered and torn they never have been identified dcf initely. The flags have been in the state historical museum here for many years. Negotiations for their return to the southern states whose men carried them into battle began last year when Egdr. Edawrd P. Alcxan dcr, the historical society's executive director, offered to release them at the request of responsible organizations In each slate concerned. Such requests were forthcoming immediately with governors, historical societies and the United Daughters of the Confederacy joining in. Dr. Alexander approached the legislature when il convened this year and permission was granted. ' Two of the flags will be sent back to Mississippi and (lie others lo South Carolina, Louisana, Missouri and Arkansas. Several flags bear mottoes. The one captured from the Richland (Ark.) Rifles in 18G2 carried the legend, "give us a place in the picture near the flashing of the guns." The standard of the Cedar Creek (S, Car.)

Apparently clinging lo bridge heads on the southern bank of the northern Donets in this sector where the river flows in an easterly direction, Red Army units have knocked out approximately one third of the attacking enemy ground forces in every recent assault, recent front dispatches said. The Germans arc trying lo cap- lure Iho bridgeheads al any cost, bul tho Soviet command attaches equal importance to them and is determined not lo surrender them. The Russians used similar bridge heads in the district of Scrafimo- vich on the western bank of the Don river as a springboard in their spectacular winter offensive. The mid-day communique said Soviel artillerymen repulsed enemy tank atlacks against the Izyum bridgehaeds overnight, knocking out six German tanks and killing about 200 Germans. Izyum is about 70 miles southeast of Khar- kov. In the Belgorod arc 1,25 miles north of Izyum, the Russians mel an assaull by German infantry head-on and threw the enemy forces back, wiping out about p company of troops, the communi- que said.

Hull's testimony, describing the reciprocal trade agreements as of paramount importance in prosecuting the war ard framing Ihe peace, came as the Ways and Means committee scheduled hearings on the extension act for one week from today. "Many changes in the political and economic organization of the world will be necessary to achieve a firm foundation for a lasting and enduring peace," he told the Appropriations committee.

Nikolai Valuilin's forces were reported to have a secure hold on the bridgeheads soulh of Izyum, with large quantifies of supplies and mobile equipment which were saved during the German drive in the Donets basin. Thus the possibility that Soviet operations might be hampered due lo tho severing of communications by the overflowing of rivers this spring was greatly diminished. There were no dispatches concerning current military operations in Moscow papers today, but several stories told of farmers near the front lines preparing for the spring season lo the accompaniment of heavy artillery booming in the distance.

The lasl blow of Ihe allack, which began Thursday night, occurred in moonlight last night when eight Flying Fortresses swept in for the third time at Kavicng, far beyond the usual bombing range of Allied planes, to damage a Japanese light cruiser or destroyer and possibly damage Ihree other vessels. The final allack brought the score of the Allied raiders to seven enemy warships of the cruiser or deslroyer lype and five merchant vessels tolalling 30,000 Ions sunk or heavily damaged, plus Ihree olher deslroyers and a merchant ship atlacked under circumslances which prevenlcd accurate observation. A communique from General MacArlhur's headquarlcrs said: "The Japanese Naval concentration at Kavicng now has been destroyed or dispersed."
