Right here it should be emphasized that Lord Halifax wouldn't Venture a guess as to the probable length of the war, and I'm not commenting on his prediction for the purpose of suggesting that the end is at hand. On the contrary, we have a bitter struggle ahead of us. The ambassador explained thus: ,.f "We know that Germany is under great stress in her man power. She has suffered huge losses in Russia, and she is finding it increasingly difficult to keep the conquered countries in subjection. >/• "In whatever direction you look, you see that strain growing in Germany Her war machine is so delicately balanced that when the common ium cows 11.00 13.00; medium cows 11.00 - 13.00: medium and good sausage bulls 13.00 - 14.75; good and choice vealers 15.00; medium and good 12.5013.75; nominal range slaughter steers 12.0017.25; slaughter heifers 11.00-16.25: stocker and feeder steers 10.75 15.25.

Tissue foods must be digested and rich, red-blood must be present to build sturdy bodies. **CSS Tonic is especially designed to stress and strain become too great> and the first crack occus, a great part of the machine may go." Lord Halifax knows his Germany well, and moreover past history support his idea. The German machine went to piece suddenly in the last war. Then there was a crack of morale both in the fighting forces and among the civilian population. That civilian morale is of the utmost importance for when it gives way, the whole machine is likely to collapse. Of late the Nazi authorities have bee n showing uneasiness over public morale. Evidence of this is found in the broadcasts for home consumption v.'hich are picked up by listening-posts in this country. Hitler and his minions have been coddling public morale by withholding the truth. For instance, the people have no idea of their huge losses on the battlefields, because we've heard the Fuehrer himslf lie like a trooper about casualties in his speeches. Then thousands upon thousands of wounded soldiers are being cared for in hospitals outside the Reich, so that their home folk don't know what goes on In iike manner the Nazi setbacks in the fighting are camouflaged. That same thing went on in the last war until the people learned the truth and the balloon exploded. I went into Cologne with the British Army at the time of the armistice. There the revolutionary socialist committee invited me into one of its meetings. The members wanted to know why the Allies were busy caring for starving people in the territories devastated by the German armies. "We didn't know there was any devastation or hunger," exclaimed the chairman. "Our authorities assured us that there was nothing of the sort. We've been deceived. Now we understand why the Allies haven't been able to send supplies sooner." One of the clever morale builders of the First World War was the faking of pictures of the Kaiser in "front line" trenches. The pictures were takc.i at Spa, Belgium. far from the sound of the big guns. A trench was dug across an open field. Then German soldiers staged a fierce battle, while the all highest swanked about in the trench. and even on the paraphet, midst steady; good and choice wooled lambs 15.75-16.50; medium and good 14.00 15.50; good and choice clipped lambs No. 1 skins 14.7515.25; most woolod ewes 9.00 down.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York. April 5 — (iP) — In the fastest stock market session since last 1941, leading rails, steel, copper, utilities and numerous industrial favorites today climbed fractions to more than 2 points to new tops for the past several years. Advancing tendencies appeared at the start and despite profit taking interludes, prices generally were at or near the best in the final hour. Large blocks of stocks selling under S15 accounted for much of the turnover of around 2,500,000 shares, a 15 - month record. build-up blood strength when deficient; V. . and to promote those stomach juices Which digest the food so the body can make proper use of it in tissue building 'and repair. • These two Important 'results enable the body to make use of the food as Nature Intended.

Then they cracked. The same thing is happening now through the loud mouth of Propaganda minster Goebbels. By the way, I've heard him harangue a crowd of fity thousand, and you've got to hand it to him as a soapbox orator. He certainly can spell oind 'em. But he can't make his lies stick forever. It's the truth that will crack the morale of the Germans — the knowledge that no matter how long they hang on they haven't a chance to win. There are some things Goebbels can't conceal — -.for instance, the fierce bombing of Reich cities which continued over tne week-end. . GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, April 5 —(/P)— Little interest was shown in grains today, traders preferring to remain on the sidelines until more definite information is available about the possibility of passing the Bankhead bill over the president's veto. The Senate is scheduled to take up the measure tomorrow. Wheat showed comparative firmness, particularly the May future, but rye and oats dragged. A sharp decline in the visible corn supply was reported for last week, the total falling'3,492,000 bushels to 38,885,000 burhels. A year ago the supply amounted to 56,142,000 bushels. Wheat closed 1-4 lower to 14 higher, May $1.45 3-8, July $1.45 1-2—3-8, corn was unchangec at ceilings, May $1.01, oats finishec 18 lower to 5 to 3-8 higher and rye lost 1-4—12.

FDR Counts 30 Votes to Sustain Veto Washington, April 5—(/I 1 )—A farm loc nose count indicated today he administration might muster ipwards of 30 votes to sustain resident Roosevelt's veto of the 3ankhead bill but the measure's ponsors remained confident the icnntc would override. Faced with the task of obtaining wo-thirds approval of those voting o make the bill law over the president's opposition, the farm eadcrs were much more apprchcn- ive of their chances in the house. Administration lieutenants are counting on a heavy "city" vote here if they fail to pel. one-third support in the Senate to kill the neasure, which would prohibit the leduction of government benefit payments from parity in cstablish- ng agricultural price ceilings. Although Senator Bankhcud (D- Ala>. author of the measure, declined to forecast the result when consideration of the veto begins in the Senate tomorrow, Snator Aiken (R-Vt.) snid he was satisfied the administration could count no nore than 30 votes if all 96 mem- Dcrs were present and recorded. Even such a result, however, would entail a major shift from six weeks ago when the Senate passed the bill 78 to 2. While some senators said they were influenced by the prseident's contention tho measure might touch off an "inflationary tornado," Senator Taft (R-Ohio) said he felt Congress meant to peg farm prices to parity, a standard calculated to equalize the exchange ol farm and non-agricultural products. "I havcr.'t decided How I will vote on the veto issue yet," he told reporters," but I am inclined to think it will be to override. I certainly think Congress meant for the farmers to have parity when it voted for parity in the Stabilization act." Music Boxes Robbed During the Night Police department officials announced today that 2 music boxes in Fred Scott's place, a negro night spot on South Hazel street, were robbecl of approximately $18 in cash sometime during the night. The robbery last night brought to three the number of music boxes broken into during the past week. Bombs Strike (Continued From Page One) shal Erwin Rommel. Every one of that group also got back to its base. (The Italian high command, in a communique broadcast from Rome and recorded by the Associated Press, said great damage was done to both public and private buildings in both Naples, the Fortress target, and in Syracuse, where railway sidings and moored seaplanes were attacked by Malta's fighter bombers. Naples reported 221 dca^l and 387 injured.) Infantrymen of the U. S. Second Army Corps, which is headed by Lieut. Gen. George S. Patlon, Jr., put on a smallscalc attack against a group of hills near the Gafsa- Gabcs road and won them in hard fighting. Barely 40 miles to the east, Gen. Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's Eighth army was inactive, officials said? and the communique did not mention this sector centered about the Wadi El Akarit, 20 miles north of Gabcs. In n ot h cl "n Tunisia around Mccl- jezElBab, socallcd gateway to the Axis bridgehead of Bizcrtc and Tunis, British First Army artillery dueled savagely with enemy guns and inflicted losses on concentra lions of motor transport and infantry.

IV6 SMOKED 'EM FOR YEARS "THIN SKINS" for unarmored trucks "CAMEL" for the service man's favorite cigarette FIXST itt THE SERVICE Wito-men in the Army, Navy, Marine- Corps, and Coast Guard, the favorite cigarette a Camel. (Based on actual sales records in Post Ex change} and Canteens.) Camels No. 1 Smoke Among Service Men Sailors have a language that is pretty much all their own. "Scuttle bull," for instance, is Navy slang for gossip; "boot" is the Navy man's word for a new recruit; and 'smoking lamp's lit" is what they say aboard ship for smoking permitted. A sailor has only four pockets in his uniform (as contrasted to vest) —but in one of those pockets you're pretty sure to find a pack of cigarettes; for whether it's in the open space of an aircraft carrier, or the cramped quarters of a submarine, your sailor wants to be sure he's ready when the word "smoking lamp's lit" is passed around . As to what the sailor smokes— well, in that he's no different from the men in Uncle Sam's other fighting forces. For with men in all branches of the service — Army, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard— the favorite cigarette is Camel, according to sales records from the service man's own stores—Post Exchanges, Sales Commissaries, Ship's Service Stores, Ship's Stores, and Canteens. Under new Post Office regulations, Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen get a better break than some of the men in the Army in the matter of gifts of cigarettes from home. You can send men in all branches of the Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard a, carton of their favorite cigarettes, no matter where they're stationed, in any part of the world—but due to restricted shipping space you can only mail cigarettes (or packages of any kind) to a man in the Army if he's stationed in the United States. However, if you can send your man in the service a gift of cigarettes, you can be sure they'll be welcome. Cigarettes are not only recognized as a considerable factor in maintaining morale, but surveys among the services men themselves have shown that a carton of cigarettes is their favorite gift from home. And looacco dealers point out that you're sure to please him if you send him the brand that is the service man's favorite—Camel.
