;*!•• HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Sofurday, April 10 ,1943_ 0 ees Ca/m in Pacific Until Allies Launch Offensive Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZIE The Pacific war remains in a state of rcaltive calm — a condition likely to persist to greater or less degree until the Allies are prepared for an all-out offensive. The Japs are busy con solidating the gains of their banditry — a task so vast that it's taxing the strength of the Mikado's little men. Any attacks which they make are for purposes of defense and not because they want more territory. The Allied forces are checkmating brillintly here, and hitting aggressively there, to keep the enemy from digging in and to weaken his striking power. Broadly speaking, however, the United Nations are doing a holding job until equipment is available for the big smash. When will the day of reckoning come? Well, the signs are too dim to read. It may well be that it will have to wait until Herr Hitler has been rendered impotent. That , would seem to be a question which even the Allid high command can't ^answer yet. Yesterday General Douglas MacArthur, in a statement on the first . anniversary of Bataan's fall, 'grieved over the fate of the Philippines under the Jap heel and said "from the bottom of a seared and stricken heart I pray that a merciful God may not delay too long •their redemption." So even the supreme commander of the Allied nations in the Western Pacific can't see the end. Still it isn't the great, all-out offensive against the Japs which we Tiave no worry about. When Hitler has been mastered, and the terrific Allied strength is released from the European theatre, the United Nations fighting machine will roll all right. Our danger lies in the present moment — this delicate period of holding the enemy in check and •preparing the way for the kill. Now is the time when Allied misjudgment might be disastrous —not , after we have our full strength . massed in the Pacific. We shall k be invincible on that day, but we aren't now. During this time of watchful preparation it's imperative that the 'cause of the United Nations be in skilled hands — the most competent available. He must be a man pf extreme patience — for the waiting is trying. He must be able )o get the most out of his inadequate equipment. He must have foresight in strategy and tactics. He must have leadership in handling both troops and civilians. And ,above all he mustn't make any big mistake. In short the commander in chief in the Western Pacific at this crucial juncture must have qualifications ranking him among the outstanding generals of history. General MacArthur was selected as the man best fitted for this exacting leadership. Since his appointment he has been praised by our Allies. Australia gratefully credits him with having stood off Japanese invasion. He has held his bridgehead as few generals could have done. So it seems more than passing strange that anyone should try to get vhe general involved in politics/ even as a candidate for the presidency. He is our sheet-anchor in the Pacific storm. Moreover, as /might be expected from a great soldier, he has emphasized that he wants nothing to do with politics, but desires only to get ahead with his job. Market Report NEW YORK STOCKS New York, April 10 (&)— The stock market regained a portion of its equilibrium today, with occasional bids for selected rails and industrials appearing, but many leaders continued in the minus column. Notwithstanding the Friday tumble, which resulted in the liquidation of assorted accounts in the speculative category, it was not overlooked that the Associated Press 66-stock average still was . about 15 points above the bottom of a year ago while the 30-industrial index retained around 20 points of its upswing. Improvements for favorites at the start of today's brief proceedings ran to small fractions generally. There were isolated advances of a point or so. Top quotations failed to hold in most cases near the close and losses were widespread. Dealings were fast and slow at intervals but turnover of around 1,000,000 shares was one of the best for Saturday since early 1940. Bonds were shaky. Commidities steadied.

Prosecutor Marcus Fietz will head Ihe prosecution staff, aided War Policy Formed by Indiana Group Indianapolis, April 9 —(l\') — Fourty Indiana republicans, who emphasized that their organization was independent of the regular G. O. P. state body, formed a post war policies council yesterday and dedicated it to "international cooperation" in which the U n it e d States shall participate." The council adopted a resolution in harmony with views expressed in a letter written by Booth Tarkington, the author, and read at the meeting in the author's absence. "I think the republican party must declare for international cooperation," the letter said. "That is, we should advocat co operation lor the prevention of future wars. Our present program I think, would kelp to the utmost simplicity only the restoration, or creation, of lasv between nations and provision for its unceasing maintenance." Richard T. JAMES, Indiana state auditor, said it should be made clear that the council "does not subscribe to the Utopian theories advanced by some people. n otable Vice President Wallace."

Ten members were present, and ten new members were added. of visitors were County Agent Urges Planting of Asparagus Asparagus produced in the home garden U a possibility for any Ilctn- pslead county faimly, Miss Mary Claude Fletcher, county home demonstration agent, advised this week. Asparagus plants, Miss Fletcher explained, will grow readily on almost any well-drained soil that is moderately free of stones, and a bed of suitable size will supply the table with one of the most delicious of the high vitamin green vegetables throughout a spring cutting season of from 4 to 10 weeks. Directions for establishing an asparagus bed are listed by Miss Fletcher as following: Good plants can be grown in the garden by sowing seed of the Mary Washington variety at any time from late February to Mid-April, thinning so that the plants stand 4 to 0 inches apart in the row, and giving good culture throughout the summer. The plants may be left in the ground over winter and lifted early the following spring. They should then be sorted and only the best used in the permanent planting. In preparing for the permanent planting, the ground should be heavily coated with well-rotted manure, icrtilized, then plowed or s^au- cd deeply. After the ground is thoroughly pulverized rows may be laid out at least 3, preferable 4 feet apart. These should be opened to a depth of at least 8 inches. The plants may then be placed in the furrow at 14 orl8-inch intervals and covered with about ' inches of soil. After the young shoots are well up. cultivation may begin and at each cultivation a little soil should be pulled into the furrow until the ground is levelled. Good cultivation for weed control should be maintained at all times. No cuttings should be in the first or second year, but in the third year, that is, after two years of growth in the permanent bed the spears may be cut for about the first 4 weeks of the growing season. In subsequent years, beds on soils of good fertility will stand cutting season of from 8 to 10 weeks. A good bed should remain production for from 10 to 15 years after the first cutting season. The bed should be cultivated tho- roughtly before spears appear in the spring, then coated with a heavy mulch of fine straw or leaves to keep sand and silt from collecting Government to Lower the Price of Hogs Washington, April D tfl>)— The government intends shortly, it was learned authoritatively today, to roll back the market price of live hogs from current levels of nearly $10 a hundred pounds to about $14.50, and at the same time provide "support prices" to give hog producers additional payments. Officials, who asked that their names be withheld, indicated OPA Chief Prentiss M. Brown and Food Administrator Chester C. Davis had agreed on such a program and would issue a public statement later. It was understood, however, the statement merely would announce the action would be taken soon, and the actual order was not expect deloday. The action, which actually has been pending several weeks, was described as the first' major result of President KoosevcH' order last night !o "hold the line" on all farm price and wages. On Capitol Hill Brown said that in line with the president's order regulations now are being prepared to bring under price control wheat, cotton, fresh fish, apples and other fresh fruits as they come into season, ccrloin oil bearing seeds, milk for manufacturing purposes, and some other products now under control. "No ceilings will be ordered for those farm commodities that have not readied parity, in keeping with provisions of the emergency price control act, as amended last October." nc addcct in an announcement read during a hearing of the House Small Business Committee before which he and Davis were to testify Purpose of the hog ceiling, it was explained, was to assure packers of pork prices consistent with the wholesale and retail meat orders of OPA. Some packers had complained that it was becoming impossible to buy hogs at uncontrolled prices, kill and process the carcases and sell the meat at the prices OPA prescirbcd. They contended the price control act passed by Congress last full required OPA to assure reasonable operating margins for packers.

Blevins Soldier Writes About Tour of Palestine An excellent description of a tour of Holy sites in Palestine was written home recently by Technical Sergeant Wallace White, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lester White of Blevins. Sergeant White, a graduate of Blevins High School, entered the army a year ago, and a brother, Corporal Cecil White, also is in the service, stationed in the state of Washington. Here is Sergeant White's letter to his mother: Somewhere in the Middle East March 12, 1948 Dearest Mother: I have just returned from my trip to Palestine. Had a wonderful time. We toured from Bethlehem, Judca up through Samaria into Galihe. Saw many Bible Historical places. I received a "V" letter from Wilma today also one from Freda Bailey. They were written the twenty-second of Fcbruray. These I think reach me much quicker than an ordinary letter. No. I didn't know that Erline was married. It seems that everyone has married since. I left. Reckon there will be anyone left for me? ha. This is the least of my worries. I still have plenty of time, don't you think'.' Now, I don't know where to start in telling you of my tour. On the way to Palestine or maybe I should say Jerusalem. I saw hundreds of acres of orange groves. The trees were laden with fruit. These were the first orange trees I have ever seen. On the mountains you sec large holders. Most of the mountains have olive trees and green vegetation growing on them. It looks funny as there are so many rocks and green vegetation just seems to grosv anyway. The old city is still walled up. It's a mystery to me to sec all these old temples and to think they date as far back as the fourth century. They arc sights to behold most of these temples arc on Mt. Moriah. Across the valley from Ml. Moriah is the Mt. of Olives. This is where the left of Mt. Olives Walls of Mt. Moriah the Jews are buried. Looking to ' Gift today. from the you see the church of all nations. Just out side the church is the Garden of Getliscmane. There is the Valley between the Mis. is Mary's Tomb or the church of Mary's tomb. Also near there is where Stephen was stoned to death we went all through the temple area the first day we were there. This was on Tuesday. On Wednesday a group of twenty three not including the guide, journ- eci to Nazareth. On the way we stopped at Jacob's Well which is at Sichcm. From this well we all drank. At Nazareth we drank from Mary's Well. There we saw many interesting sights. From Nazareth we went to a very nice city along the Mediterranean Sea which is the city of Haiti. This city is at the foot of Mt. Carmel. On top of Mt. Carmel is where Eiligah prayed for rain. His temple still stands. There things which was saw of the Olden limes and of the Oldet prophets have large church ercelcc over them. I wish you could the the inside of some them. I know these arc the most bcautifu churches in the world. We stayed al the British Y. M. C A. in Jerusalem. There is one ol th: nicest American Y. M. C. A buildings here I have ever seen. It was full up so we had to slay at the Britisn Y. M. C. A. It was a rough trip and cost lols bul 1 wouldn't lake my money back ant a thousand dollars for what I saw. Mother. I am .so sleepy I can hardly hold my eyes open so I will have to quit for this time. I have lots of pictures guides and maps of all kinds of Palestine I also have a new testament I want to send to the family. The backs arc made ol Oiive wood. I will try to send all o[ the pictures and guide books as soon as I find time. Must close for now. Write often. With love, Wallace. P. S.

L. McCain, local Missouri Pacific agent, said today. "The war has placed good shipping practices in a new and important light," said Mr. McCain. "In other years, loss and damage to freight while in transit, entailed only an economic loss; today, however, its effects can be reckoned only in terms of impairment to the county's total war effort." The event is sponsored annually by American railroads and 18 Regional Shippers Advisory board, whose combined membership aggregate some 25,000 shippers. It is a three-part campaign, with shippers, railroads and consignees exerting every effort to prevent loss and damage to freight. Mr. McCain pointed out that a great deal of freight, including critical materials needed in Hie prosecution of the war, is lost or damaged each year because it is insecurely packaged, roughly handled, or inadequately addressed. "Transportation facilities a r o now heavily burdened," he explained, "and goods lost or damaged in transit may be virtually irrcpIaCable. At best, their replacement entails duplication of man hours, duplication of badly needed materials and duplication of transportation service." The Missouri Pacific Lines, he added, are conducting employe meetings at numerous points this month on the subject of perfect shipping. Posters directing attention to the campaign also arc being displayed. Jurors Selected in Sleeper Car Murder Albany, Ore., April !!
