Dealings were around 2,000.000 shares. Contributors to County Red Cross Drive new victory, as disclosed by British Prime Minister Churchill in the House of Commons today- would seem to have deprived the fleeting Rommel of the last strong Axis position in southern Tunisia. Mr. Churchill is an able reporter and a grand announcer. Let's hope he doesn't lose his voice. What has happened is that Montgomery has driven Rommel from the powerful defenses of the Wadi El Akarit. a gorge like valley about twenty miles north of the Port of Gabe . This feat , was achieved by Ihe Hell-jtor leather British Eighth Army in ha,nd - to hand lighting after a terrific artillery and aerial bombardment of enemy positions. At latest reports Rommel's heels were Hashing up the coast, with Montgomery in hot pursuit. Axis prisoners were pouring into the British rear, and there could be no doubt that heavy casualties were being inflicted on the fleeing forces. It seems like yesterday — and in fact it's only a few weeks ago— that I sat with Montgomery in his caravan in the Libyan desert and heard him describe Rommel as a great soldier, but one who would be beaten. Rommel is a great soldier, too, and he has done a masterful job in alternately standing off the enemy and extricating his troops from seemingly impossible positions. .However, the Nazi Marshal would seem to. be getting close to the end of his rope, though we shouldn'-t jump to the conclusion that there won't be more fierce fighting in Tunisia. His latest defeat is a particularly grave one for him, oecause it puts him out in the open to run. the gantlet in an ef- f6rt to make a junction with his colleague, General Von Arnim, in the far north. •The Wadiel Akarit was a strong position which Rommel had pre- n4ied in advance as a, second defense behind the Mareth'line. However; this Wadi, or deep valley, is about the last of such natural positions along the central coastal area of Tunisia until you get in the vicinity of the port of Spusse. Thus wbJu\e Rprnrnel undoubtedly has prepared positions for just such a contingency, there is no indication that he has any place which approaches the strength of the Wadi which he now has been forced to flee. This being so, his army will be compelled to fight more or less in the open coastal plain, and to suffer a. terrific bomb ing from massed Allied warplanes. The Marshal is in a very bad way, One assumes that Rommel now will make an effort to race through to Von Arnim before one of the Al- Did Simple Simon Scold His Pieman Because of Stomach Ulcer Pains?

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, April 7 (/O— An easy undertone prevailed.in grains today, although earlier losses in most pits were partly cancelled before the close. Further selling on indications that the Bankhead bill would not be passed by the Senate over the presidents veto depressed prices.

A later rally sent the price back to 11.05, the ceiling, and considerable trading took place at and slightly under that level. At the close wheat was 18 lower to 3-8 higher, May $1.44 1-4, July $1.43 8— 3-4,ocrn was unchanged at ceilings, May $1.01 and September SI.05, oats were 1-8 lower to 1-4 higher and rye was unchanged to 1-4 higher.

The reason: Enroute, he'd accidentally exchanged his bag with one belonging to a WAAC. Two Charged in Mystery Slaying Calico Rock, April 7 —MV- A mother and her pretty, red-haired 21year-old daughter — the latter mysteriously murder for nearly four months — were charged today with first degree murder for the death of the woman's husband. Charles Durant, "43, whose body was found Sunday in a shallow- grave in the backyard of the family's former home here. Deputy Prosecutor R. D. Harris announced he filed the murder charges against Mrs. Armanda Rose Durant and her daughter, Mary, in circuit court at Melbourne on information furnished by Sheriff J.A. Rodman. A coroner's jury held that Durant. a World War veteran, met violent death and Rodman said an autopsy revealed a shattered revolver bullet in his head. The sheriff said police at Tomeo, Mich., took Mrs. Durant in custody there yesterday and reported she would waive extradition. He said he did not know when he would return her here but that he was anxious to question her. Rodman was in Little Rock today, armed with a court order authorizing him to examine Durant's record at the Veterans' Administration offices. Durant served in World War I under the name Charles W. Darling and was drawing compensation in that name. The sheriff said he expected the records to shed some light on the man' past and possible give him a clue to the whereabout of the missing girl — Durant's stepdaughter. "There are a lot of strange things about this case," Rodman said. "If we could find the girl, I think we could solve it." He disclosed that Mary Durant had oeen engaged to an army lieutenant whom she had never seen. "It was a correspondence romance," he said. She wrote letters to people she contacted through magazine columns. This of- icer came to Calico Rock looking or her a few days after she dis- ppeared. I am going to question iim .is soon as possible." Rodman said the girl attended public school here but did not fin- sh high school. He said she was ;eldom seen in public unless ac- :ompanied by Durant who lived a Deluded life, supported by his federal compensation.

The state commission decided to submit recommendations jointly with the operators after B. E. Buchanan, district chairman for PAW' gas division told the commision here that he would recommend oil development for the Cotton Valley- sand in the two fields upon assurance it would not impair gas production there. Buchanan asserted that evidence presented at yesterday's hearing was the first factual presentation, except -.'eneralitie. offered i n support of the oil development. The recommendations on which his engineers and the state commission must pass will be forwarded to Wahington. New drilling Dorcheal, Macedonia and McKamie fields has been halted by PAW refusal to authorize additional permits. The federal agency contended critical materials were used in drilling wells which frequently produced natural gas only and that sufficient gas Dining Cor Cook to Face Murder Charge Albany, Ore., April 7 —(A 1 )—The knife sl-iyinfi of n pretty Virginia bride as she lay in lower berth 13 of a speeding train brought Robert E. Lee Koikes, 20-year-old Los Angeles Negro dining care cook, to trial today on a first degree murder charge. Koikes is accused of cutting the throat of Mrs. Martha Virginia James, 21, bride of u naval ensign and member of a prominent Virginia family, before dawn Jan. 23 while the Southern Pacific's West Coast Limited rocketed through snow-mantled Oregon en route to California. The thud of the body in the aisle was the first warning to passengers that there had been a slaying Quick search of the trai n failed to disclose a murder weapon. The slayer left such few clues that there even was speculation he had left the train. No motive was brought out by investigators. Because of traffic congestion, Mrs. James' husband, on his way to a new assignment, was on another train. After the slaying, some passen - gers in the ill-fated Sleeper D section told officers they recalled hearing a muffled jcream and one he heard a woman protesting. "I can't stand this any longer." Several days later Koikes was arrested in Los Angeles. Hai-low Weinrick, district attorney for Linn county, Oregon, in which the train slaying occurred, said Folkes made several oral confession but their context never was officially disclosed.

In another fierce foray against War Planners (Continued From Page One) I statement that the buffer state is a thing of the past," dci«l as a dodo," aroused perturbation among representatives of some of the smaller European stale, who asked lhat was '.o become of them. They drew attention to a dictionary definition of the buffer state as "a country or state, for example Switzerland, which intervenes geographically between larger states and lessens the danger of rupture from immediate contact of their unfriendly element." Belgium was cited as an outstanding example of the buffer stale and it was recalled that the ure 1938 Austrian Republic was ouft'er between Germany nnd Italy: Albania a buffer between Italy and Greece. One of the worried diplomats, who asked that his identity be withheld, pointed out that Adolf Hitler's publicly proclaimed excuse for invading Belgium and Holland was that these buffer states were about to double - cross Germany, their powerful neighbor. But Ihe sad history of the League of Niitipns showed only loo clearly, he said, lhal -he aeries of aggression which wrecked international efforts to maintain world pence were without exception launched by great powers-* not buffer slales. How to reassure Rusia without throwing one of the smaller European slales inlo a panic thus appeared to be one of the complexities of ihe situation. Half Burned Coat Clue in Slaying Calico Rock, April 7 </P)— A partly-burned mackinaw containing two $1 bills, a package of cigarct.s and a puir of spectacles has been found in a field near here, giving rise to hope that iy mbta shrdlus rise to hope thai it may be ;i duo in Ihe mystery killing of Charles Durant, 43. The garment was dsicovered by children in a field on the little 12 or IS-acrc farm thai Durant rented on the outskirts of town. Sheriff ,1. R. Rodman, who spent yesterday in Little Sock seeking information on Din-ant from the Veterans Administration, was not available for comment, having loft Melbourne this morning for an undis- ] closed destination without revealing his purpose. Durant hud been seen wearing a macinaw here before his disappearance early in December. His body was dug from a shallow grave in the back yard of his former home Sunday after a dog belonging to Hcrmiin Reeves, new occupant of the residence, scratched up a man's hiind. The Reeves family moved to another residence precipitately. Washington By JACK STINNETT Wide World Features Writer Washington — For the first time the Army has set up a school for postmen.

ARKANSAS' "SELF- REGULATION" PROGRAM Perhaps you Lave not heard of the constructive work being done by this Committee to maintain high standards o* decency aud law observance wherever beer is sold in this State. For 3 years now, we have acted as the conscience of the beer industry. Others cannot be as critical of us as we are of ourselves. We have an ancient and honorable tradition to uphold. We help to drive the law-breakers from the ranks of beer retailers. Decent retailers, running wholesome places, deserve this protection. Working closely with law enforcement officials, we ferret out the facts, face law violators with them. Warn them: Clean m> or Close up! Unheeded warnings have one result. Your officials then step in, revoke licenses or issue injunctions. Put them out of the beer business. Thus we help to maintain conditions in your community on a level that you would approve. If you hear of law violation, please report it to the proper officers, or to us. 1$ * ltEVEHA«JE OF MO W Jill VI 10 * ARKANSAS COMMITTEE BREWING INDUSTRY FOUNDATION I. HUGH WMARTOH.
