HOPE STAR, HOP 6, ARK AN S AS Thursday, April 29, ermans Also Must Be Having Trouble Getting Fuel |Hr K nalysis of he News by lackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. ?• By DeWlTT MacKEMZlE »« The rather startling debate in Washington over whether we are, *or are not, encountering difficulties with our supply of high octane aviation gasoline, gives to wonder how our number one antipathy, Herr "Hitler, is getting along with his fuel supply. America is by far the world's j greatest producer .of petroleum i and gasoline and the biggest indus- j trial nation. If we strike snags (or L <Jo we) what must be the trials 'of the Hun whose supplies of oil— apart from what he piled up before war and stole from occupied '^countries •— com.e from .the comparatively small production of the -jkwtf - grade Rumanian wells, and frbrn synthetic processes applied ; tof'coal* Of course the Germans don't nqr- 1 mally use- ,100 ' Octane gasoline, Jwhich is for specially designed ^'American engines. However, the "vproblem of ordinary aviation gas *still remains. ; ^ We don't know ju,st what H i t- •?J.ei-'s gasoline resources are, but.as 1 5ong ago as last ..summer military .experts noted indications that the Nazis were running very short. The great storage of oil and gas which he made in ^preparation for the \vtrr, and the,stocks he .took from prance and other ravaged coun- 'icies, undoubtedly are depleted. _ The Germans likely are making ipvQst of their lubricants and gasoline synthetically from coal. That's •ji slow and:arduous process, for it ,Jakes a lot of coal to produce a gallon of oil, /and much more for S viation gasoline. Probably the reduction of 100 Octane .gasoline ,,Jn practical quantities would'be out of the question. V Of course, the Nazis have built . ariplane engines for a much tower grade of gasoline.- They use ..a, dirept injeption engine, that is, one without a carburetor. The re- ,'sult is that they get more power igw4h their ordinary gasoline. v> Still, figure it'as you will, the * il experts .feel'^.fairly certain itler is sufferjng^fr.ornifa, serious f> .;h,ortage of ga^s. That ! uridoubted- *Jly is one of the reasons why his air •ce has been lying down for ' r ,»imonths nawv Not even the all-im- s .«eportant North ,;Alrican : show- has T jjdrawn very/much.air strength from 1 iuthe continent .and thus far the Ger?' wians have,taken the •bombardment ^ ( ^ol western Europe lying down. > •> That doesn't ;me,ani -however, ', .that the Lufwtaffe .is. put pi com\ >! rnission What it presumably does \< f ,rn.ean is that the fuehrer/is conserv- - MJiJg n ' s depleted store of gasoline j/,and other resources.either for one r ,,more great offensive >in an ; effort [ f ito achieve a .killing -or- for purely s "defensive purposes. Possibly,he has '. r * t both these things in mindl for it's -j,a cpctainty that he is preparing to meet an Allied invasion. - jr Oil men say that lack" of high jgrade lubricating oil may-be ham,p-, *enng Hitler about as much as the j nscarcity of-gasoline. The Rumanian ,-jpetroleum is too low gr^de for deli- a cate machinery, so that th,e Nazis - »ha-ve to produce much of this from , 'coal. Some observers go so far as to that shortage of oil and Igas will beat Hitler. There's no *doubt that- one of his chief objects in making his attacks on the ((Russian Caucasus was to reach oil, tend if he makes an onslaught this *&pnng it may easily be another *<jirive agaipst th.e Caucasian gate*way to the petroleum fields. »» ^0^; it) The greatest ocean race wa m 1905 when-11 large yachts from andy Hook, N.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York, April 29 — (IP)— The stock market today found a tonic in the president's strong stand on the coal labor controversy and leading issues advanced fractions to a point or so, a number to new highs for the year or.longer. The upturn came in the wake of a hesitant opening. Bidding was lively for a while around midday, A little profit cashing slowed the pace after noon and most climbers were under their best levels near the close. Transfers for the five hours exceeded 1,000,000 shares. Motors, rails and steels were in front of the revival.

N - Nominal. FDR Suggests (Continued From Page One) News stories on the early part of his trip were released midway of his travels. He went "off the record" again after parting with Mexico's president at Corpus Christi, Texas, April 21. This was his itinerary from Corpus Christ! on: April 22.

Travclle'd north westward across Texas, through a corner of New Mexico and into Colorado. April 24.

Saw a Martin bomber plant at Omaha turning out B - 26 Marauders and testing them in flight. April 27. Stopped at Jefferson barracks, Mo., the oldest military post west of the Mississippi, for a mass review by 15.000 troops who had been in service a maximum of 28 days.

Saw the army show off the tremendous offensive power of an armored division, with tanks, artillery, planes and infantrymen using live ammunition.' Tho dec-nest impression Mr. Roosevelt brought back to Washington was one of a vast improvement in the armed forces, since he made a similar tour last September, accompanied by an encouraging acceleration in the production of the munitions they need on the combat fronts. As on that former trip, he returned critical of Washington. He said he had found the country as a whole had a better perspective on the war and a better sense of proportion that the national capital. Speaking to representatives of the three major news services at a press conference aboard his special train, the president said, the whole temper fo the counti-y ( was far more sober and far more intelligent than the attitude of a good part of Washington.

East Second St. 31-tl GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, April 29 (IP)— Wheat prices generally held steady today, although activity was light as grain men devoted considerable attention to the soft coal controversy. Any weakening in the anti- inflation line toward labor, it was felt, might encourage congressional efforts for higher agricultural prices. MEALS TASTE BETTER WHEN YOU SERVE BLUE RIBBON BREAD AT YOUR GROCERS and CITY BAKERY Miners Given (Continued From Page One) when a temporary extension ex- pries, the miners ''will not trespass" on company property. Stopping the steady flow of the soft coal which fires war production machines on steel, power, transportation and other fronts, soon would cripple countless phases of the nation's war effort, and Mrs. Roosevelt's first action was expected to be a plea to the miners on that basis. Should that fail, some observers looked for troops to be moved into the coal fields to assure protection of property and of employes wishing to work. Although there has been no precise wartime precedent for .such a course, the president implied in handling two previous cases that such action would be taken if needed. Both cases involved the UMW, but neither carried the sanction of National Union leaders — as will the coal case if the stoppage is called — and the president's return - to - work orders were obeyed. In this case, Lewis is asking that the new Appalachian contract include a ?2 daily wage increase, $8 - a - day basic wage, underground travel pay and unionization of minor bosses. During long nego- tification of the base ot the WLB. i the operators contended that granting such increases would violate the "Little Steel" formula, since two years ago the miners received an increase exceding the formula's allowed per centage. The contract covers most soft coal operations in six states, but is used -us a basis for wage agreements in several other states. By late last nit-ht. nearly 150 mines were closed by spread of the unauthorized strikes with some 70,000 miners already idle. CASH?

Dickinson, a member of the Me George construction company firm here, announced today that approximately 50 of 2f)0 workmen employed on a strip mining project near Bauxite stayed away from work today as a result of a dispute over a union contract. Dickinson said the men were scrapper and catepillar tractor operators atitl members of an A. F. L. union. Tho dispute he said, involved a maintenance of union membership clause. Average wages on Iho job, Dickinson said, are from $(iO ot $70 a week. The company official said amicable settlement of the dispute was expected. The concern is mining Bauxite under contract for one of the larger operators in the area. The first American yacht to make a foreign cruise was built in 181G and named Cleopatra's Barge. • - .„ ... . The first American yacht club was Iho Knickerbocker Boat Club, organized in New York City in 1811. »R It Takes Both WAR BONDS AND TAXES To Win Vkiory NOW SHE SHOPS "CASH AND CARRY Without Painful Backache , B Many sufferers relieve rmgi;inK backnMio'41 it quickly, onro llit'y discover that tho tfiil GAUBfl of thnir trounjn may tw titiM kidneys.
