Field dipatchcs said a further advance by the British Eighth Army in the Enfidaville sector was halted by heavy artillery commanding the coast road to Tunis. Lieut. Gen. K. A. N.

OWI Praises Bravery of Newspapermen New Markup Price System on Vegetables Washington, April 15 — (/l j i ~; OPA prescribed a new "markup" system of pricing fresh vegetables at re'.ail today while official intimated Ihe step \viis a preliminary to bringing down Ihe cost of garden produce in compliance with President Roosevelt's orders to reduce the cost of food where possible. Poullry also has been mentioned by officials as a likely candidate for similar price trimming. Complaints about vegetable nriccs now constitute the bulk ol '"kicks" received by OPA from the public. Prices soared in Ihe wake of cu.incd goods rationing. Frosts and other damage in some growing localities complicated things. The first step taken last month, froze prices of seven key vegetables at then current levelus Today's order, which goes into effect April 22, sets the maximum retail price on each of the seven products al a fixed per cenlage above the wholesale pric.c The next step, freely predicted in OPA, will be to cut the wholeale price and under the retail "markup" system that action will automatically cut retail prices. Meanwhile, Ihe markups arc nol expected to make much change in j retail prices, and officials said the result ould be judged only on a slo'-e-by- store basis.

Washington, April 15 — </T) —''•'- mer Davis, director of War Information, said today the bravery of American correspondents and the enterprise of American newspapers, press association, magazine, radio, and newsreelg oranizations have given Ihe American people frank " and complete information about the war. "The gallantry of these reporters and photographers is akin lo that of our tighling men, but it is also a thing apart," Davis said in a statement. "For they don't fight — and Iht-y can't fight back when, as it | happens so often, their own lives j are jeopardized. ; "Their mission is to mirror lor us at 'loino something of what our fighting men arc doing for us. Their service is one to which we owe much, to which we will owe even more until we have achieved a victory based in purl on the understanding they give to us." Since Pearl Harbor, Davis said, more tnan 000 newspaper writers, radio commentators and cameramen have been accredited by United Stales military authorities to the various Iheatcrs of operations ashore and afloat and about 400 of these are actively covering the news un the fronts at all limes. In addition, between GO and , 70 American news and picture men have been accredited to the Brilish or British Dominion military authorities. Among correspondents singled out for praise by Davis were such Associated Press men as these: Harry Crockcll, who losl his lift- when li British vessel was lorpe- docd in the Mediterranean. Larry Allen, who was taken prisoner . ft' Tobruk last September. <> and now is a prisoner of war in Italy. I Taylor Henry, who stuck lo his ! post'at Vichy' "until what re- j mained of France was o v e r- j whelmed by the Nazis."
