When you say "Pilsen" you think of beer, but it wasn't beer his majesty's Ibirdmen were after. 'Pilsen is the site of the Skoda armament works — one of the greatest war plants in the whole world. It straggles over many acres and forms an enviable target for ;bombers, but Hitler wasn't much worried over Skoda because it lays so deep in the continent that there seemed little fear the Allies could carry out more than rare token raids against it. The Skoda works have been the all highest's ace in the hole, for even though the more exposed Krupp armament works at Essen were knocked about, he still would have in Skoda the balance of strength needed to keep his war- machine running. Moreover, Skoda is centrally located and so can supply his forces in all the European theatres. But an R.A.F. fleet winged its way some 700 miles clear across Germany, in the midst of flying , flak and attacks by fighter planes, to deluge peaceful Pilsen with death and destruction. At the same time another contingent of British bomb- 4 ers smashed at the important industrial cities of Mannheim and XiUdwigshafen in southwest Germany. : The two raids employed 600 1 heavy bombers, and 1,500 tons of f bombs were loosed on the Boche. The British loss of 55 planes wasn't > costly enough to make the operation unprofitable. Simultaneously the Russians made another raid on Koenigsberg, the great German supply base in , east Prussia. Neighboring Danzig ' and Tilsit also were bombed. The •Red airmen inflicted considerable damage. But the British and Russian i 5raids were only part of the story.

But what it apparently meant was that the cream had been skimmed off the pool of money which the treasury thinks can and should be invested in war bonds. This cream, as Secretary of the Treaury Henry Morgenthau, Jr., pointed out, was the money from the big investor. The big investor, generally speaking, is a bank, an insurance company, a trust fund, a public institution, and so on. He is not usually the man in the street, the war worker, or the individual with loose cash in his pocket or bank account. The big investor is an expert in securities, and knows a good thing when he sees one. That is why this class of bond buyer has napped up all but 904 million of the more than 9 billion in bond sold thus far. There are still 4 billion dollars to go before the drive for 13 billion in April goes over the top.

Gains ranged from fractions to a point or so in the forenoon. These were reduced or transformed into minus signs near the close and final prices were well jumbled. Dealing either way were on the and it is known that Food Administrator Chester C. Davis is reluctant to approve them for a number of reasons. Agriculture Departments Commod- experts believe the CCC could keep cotton prices from advancing to excessive levels by offering ,. the trade supplies from . government- owned stocks. The CCC has authority to sell up to 300,000 bales of cotton per month, but not more than 1,500,000 bales in a calendar year, at not less than parity prices. The government owns large stocks of cotton, but much of it is of low quality. Ceiling on cotton have been proposed by the Office of Price Administration as a means of protecting manufacturers from being Morgenthau, must come "straight from the people — from the men and women who have new jobs in shipyards and on war production lines: from the men and women who are still at their old jobs and who are asked now to contribute in double measure as Amercia prepares for its great offensive." "Up to this point," the secretary said, "I am sorry to say that our reports do not reflect purchases by the individual buyer of small denomination bonds in an amount as great as we expect and must have. "However. I hasten to add that we all have great confidence that in the remaining two weeks the people will put their hearts into the job.

But Senator Bridges (R-NH). a member of the subcommittee made known he had taken the position that the FPC interfered with state's right in the Arkansas inquiry- Bridges said the appropriations committee "might withhold a part of the power commission's appropriation," He said the testimony had been heard, lasting an entire clay, and the matter now is in a state of flux, since no dicision has been made. Bridges said he has two complaints against the FPC: 1."There is an overlapping and duplication in the operation of the commission and that of the various state utilities commission." 2. "The FPC is interfering with state's rights." The Senator lias been writing to state regulatory bodies throughout the country, asking their opinion on whether there was an infringements of state's rights in the Ar- New Publicity Group Named by Adkins Little Rock, April 10 (fft— Arkansas had a new publicity com- nission today but it won't lust long — just until July 1. Governor Adkins appointed the five members ground Saturday "to avoid any technicalities and to clarify any misunderstanding that might arise regarding expenditures of the commission." Under a 19-1,'i law, the publicity department will merge with the planning board July 1 and the Publicity Commission will be abolished. The "technicalities" referred to by the governor were raised last week by Treasurer Earl Page who announced he would seek an attorney genc'ral's ruling on the validity of expenditures made by the Publicity Department. Page saki the act creating it provided that expenditures should be made by the director upon approval of the commission. The commission was created during the administration of Gov. Carl E. Bailey but the first body up- pointed by Bailey went out of office when Adkins was elected and the vacancies remained unfilled. C. E. Palmer, south Arkansas publisher and former chairman of the Bailey Commission, said in New York last night that Former Publicity Director M. C. Blackmail "conducted his office under full supervision of Hie Arkansas Publicity Advisory Commission, coop- crating with the commision fully. All advertising and publicity plans were made or approved by the commission und all expenditures authorized by it. 1 ' Glenn Green has been publicity director since Adkins assumed office. The new commission mimed by Adkins is composed of Clarence F.

This expedition represented the deepest penetration our bombers had made into German territory, and it was an astonishing feat. It was done in broad daylight and the huge bombers were unescorted by defending fighters. The distance was too great for fighter support. This means that the Fortresses had to fly across about the strongest anti-aircraft defenses on the continent. It meant that they had to battle their way through clouds ot German fighter planes, as is f shown by the remarkable fact that the Yankee crews shot down some fifty Nazi machines. That indicates I medium and good "heifers ton products. Agriculture Department authorities claim that increased labor costs rather than the price of cotton is the cause of such squeeze.

We lost sixteen planes out of what is described as a large force. All in all, the week-in's fresh display of Allied air power must be the cause of extreme anxiety to the Nazi high command. The increasing roar of United Nations bombers over territory which Hitler has regarded as secure, is the trumpet that will crumble the walls of Jericho and let the attack armies in. ST.
