tfj HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tueiilay, AprilI 27,1943 inland, Poland Affairs Headache to Post-War Plans o Analysis of lie News by '.> Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. Market Report By DeWITT MacKENZIE Post-war reconstruction in Europe seems to be heading into some dirty weather, what with Soviet Russia's severance of relations with the Polish government in exile, and the diplomatic ties between Washington and our once good 'friend, Finland, shivering in the balance. Moscow charges that the Poles, "to please Hitler's trann," have . been accusing the Reds of murdering 10,000 Polish officers. The Soviet says that the Germans killed these men, and declares that "this <'hostile Polish campaign" was un- dertaken to test territorial concessions from Russia. , So in this RussoPolish imbroglio •we have read-made one of the , knott problems of an peace con'•' ference. Actually the Finnish refusal to abandon making war on i Russia is a piece off the same ', cloth, for here again the question of ' territories is the real issue. Interested readers can at this point pin in their hats the memo that territorial adjustments are going to provide a lot of heart-burn- 'ings and we'll be luck if it stops at that. :'Both the Polish and the Finnish situations are kicking up a lot of feeling. In this connection the National Committee of Finnish-American Trade Unionists, claiming to represent fifteen local committees spread throughout the country, has issued a statement in Newark calling on the United States to declare war on Finland as "an enemy of America and of the United Nations." It asserts that the reduction ot the American legation staff in Helsinki is "another warning that •will not be heeded by the Manner- heim tField Marshal Baron Man- nerheim) government." '>As a matter of fact, while no state of war exists between Finland and the United States, we are suffering — and the Allied cause is ' suffering — many of the damaging effects of a declared hostility. The -Finns are working in full coopera- , tion with the Huns in making war ' on our Russian ally. Of course Helsinki maintains the fiction that the Finnish war is quite apart from the global conflict. This was emphasized at the time that Field Marshal Mannerheim visited Hitler at the latter's head• quarters last June. Well, you just can't split a hair •which is so delicate as that one. Mannerheim's first order of the day to his troops, as they went into battle against the Russians in June of 1941. summoned them to "a holly war against the enemy of our nation" and declared that "we set ' forth side by side of the mighty armed forces of Germany as their comrades in arms." If that doesn't make the Finns the Allies of the Nazis, then language has ceased to have any meaning. Finland is said to swarm with Germans. Field Marshal Manner- heim, who is the country's greatest ' hero and one of the outstanding personalities of her history, certain 'seems friendly enough to the Axis. He has been decorated by the Germans and Italians until his bemed- aled chest looks like that of a bandmaster. On the baron's seventy- fifth birthday last June 4, Fuehrer Hitler flew clear from Germany to Helsinki to congratulate him and present him with the Golden Grand Cross of the. German Eagle. The Nazi chief was accompanied by none less than Field Marshal Keitel, chief of his high command. Taking it all in all, it looks as though little Finland has strained the bonds of friendship with the Allies pretty hard. Indications are that she will have to make a mighty quick shift in her attitude or take the consequences in the peace conference. -•»•••- • The Belgian Congo has an area of almost a. million square miles.

April 27 (IP)— Liquidation of small lots of May wheat ] tended to weaken the market to- j day but prices held within a narrow range. As the maturity date for government loans on 1942 cash wheat stored in warehouses approached, traders tended to restrict operations and little attention was paid to routine developments. Rye and oats showed signs of strength but they were unable to get the market out of the rut of the past few days. Wheat closed unchanged to 3-8 cents under Monday's final prices, May $1.43 1-8—14, July $1.43; corn was unchanged at ceilings. May $1.05; oats were unchanged to 1-4 higher and rye advanced 3-8 to 1-2 cent. Cash wheat: No sales. Corn: No. 2 yellow 1.07; No. 2 white 1.23 1-2. Oats: No. 4 white 67 1-4.

Nelson Weary of Patterson, Jeffers Fight By JACK BELL Washington, April 27 — (.'!')— Sharply critical of publicly - aired "fighting" between government officials, WPB Chairman Donald M. Nelson testified today he believes that not only thc synthetic rubber and high octane gasoline programs can be carried out this year, but also the planned production of airplanes, escort vessels and merchant shipping. Called before thc Truman committee inquiring into a dispute involving Rubber Director Jeffers, Undersecretary of War Patterson ancl Petroleum Administrator Ickes, Nelson said: "Everything that can be done to expedite construction of plants for manufacture of high oclane gasoline will be done," adding: "This can be done through cooperation, not through fighting." Without mentioning either Patterson or Jeffers by name, the war production board chairman declared. "Any indulgence in personal rivalries in time of war is completely out of place." Asserting that if any program has been endangered, there was an "established procedure" for review, Nelson added that nothing could be accomplished by "stirring up personal rivalries." "i never will object to any one going to the press after all the olher actions for settlement are taken," he said. "I've had experience in personal rivalries. Any indulgence of that sort in time of I war is completely out of place." Nelson said he had been informed by "some of my people" and by thc office of petroleum ad- minislralor for war that if thc entire syntetic rubber program were halted today the production of 100 octane airplane gasoline could not be increasetd. NEW YORK COTTON New York, April 27 (fP) Confusion as to how the C, C. C. cotton stabilization porgram will operate held cotton trading to small proportions today.

N - Nominal. Jeffers Says Rubber Situation Better Houston, Tex.. April 27 (<?) — director, headed back to ashing- ton today from an inspection of southern synthetic rubber . pants with the conviction that all's swell. "After getting out in the ccjim- try and seeing what the fellows are doing here and there, I can go back to Washington with the knowledge that nothing is wrong with our country and that everything is doing swell," he told newspapermen. He intimated that his swing through the country had given him first-hand information with which to answer his critics in Washington wi.ore he plans to attend the Truman committee hearing tomorrow. Production of high octane gasoline has not been cut short by the synthetic rubber program, he declared.. Synthetic rubber, now rolling under military vehicles, before long will be on sale for private cars, he said, and purchasers will not be able to tell any difference from natural rubber. Synthetic rubber will be a permanent postwar industry, he added. Ball Attendance in Southern Loop Is Satisfactory By PHIL CLARKE Atlanta, April 27 — (/I'l — Thc 1943 baseball season is still romping around in knee pants d o w n south, but Southern Association ball clubs view attendance figures for thc 13 games to date as plainly satisfactory. Despite wartime transport action problems ancl thc knotty player puzzles most teams arc having to solve, 33,840 fans have twirled the turnstiles at four Southern ballparks. This averages around 2,50 customers per game which can be counted on as paying the freight. Thc approximate attendance figures arc: Atlanta (four games! — 10.042. Birmingham (four games) — 10,042.

Advance estimates were that about 90,000 fans would turn out for the eight panics and if (lie predictions are fulfilled baseball not only will have its biggest clay of the spring, but will have a load lifted off its collective mind. The schedule and the expected attendance: National league — Boston at New York 15,000; Cincinnati at Pittsburgh 15.000; Chicago at St. Louis 10.000; Brooklyn at Philadelphia 7,000.

Gen. .• Urelion B. Somervcll. said today. "' In a speech prepared for delivery to the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, thc commanding general of the army service forces asserted categoric.illy "there have been no huge accumlations of stores which could not be moved overseas." "In point of fact," he added, "we are still mil free from difficulties in providing essential cargo for tin; shipping which is available to us." Widespread discussion of recent reductions in the production program for the ground forces, Somervell said, has failed lo take into account that the action concerned future schedules, not current production, which is still increasing t at a rale of about $100,000,000 a month. Moreover, this rate of increase maintained through most if we art; to reach our goal." the general aikled. Branding reports of a munitions surplus and rumors that the an- tomoblio' industry was shifting from military to civilian production as Axis - inspired propaganda designed to slow up Ihe war effort Somervell declared that "victory is nol just around the corner."

In an address prepared lor de« ivery at the opening of the Fourth Canadian Victory Loan campaign, Grew emphasi/ed that the war igainst Japan and Germany was .he same war, "one and indivis- ble," and that Japan is being defeated in North Africa, because, "we fight Japan in Africa and the Mediterranean even as we fight Germany in Asia and the Pacific." The North African campaign means much to the Tokyo militarists, the former" ambassador continued, but, "if they clo not see this stark truth, so much the better for us, and the more deluded they. "What defeats the German aggressor will defeat the Japanese aggressor," Grew said. "It is a matter of the simplest and most elementary truth that the Chinese are veritably fighting Germany in the far interland of Shansi and Yunnan, just as we are fighting Japan both in the Pacific and in the skies of Europe."
