Japs Kill AH in Area Where Fliers Landed San Francisco, April 29 — (fP) — Every man, woman and child in the coastal areas of China where American fliers found haven after bombing Tokyo a year ago has been butchered by revenge - mad Japanese troops. This horror of blood - letting, reported to American* authorities by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek and announced by Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau, Was Lidice reproduced on a wholesale scale. Morgenthau read Generalissimo Chiang's cablegram at a meeting of war loan workers in San Francisco last night. He recalled the . Japanese announcement of their execution of some of the captured American fliers — "those gallant fighting men, who were by all military law and precedent prisoners of war." "Now," Morgenthau said his voice vibrant with emotion, "with a deep sense of shock and anger, must bring you further news. I have here a cablegram which reached me this morning. It comes from Generalissimo Chiang K a I- shck. Let me read it to you: "After they had been caught unawares by the fallirtg of American bombs on Tokyo, Japanese troops attacked the coastal areas of China where many of the American fliers had landed. These Japanese troops slaughtered overs man woman and child in those areas' — let me repeat — ""these Japanese troops slaughtered every man, woman, and child in those areas, reproducing on a wholesale scale the horrors which the world had seen at Lidice, but about which people have been uninformed in these instances. The dastardly ex- cution of these American fliers, who were taken as prisoners of war, has made it clear to all Americans that we face an enemy who knows no codes of law or dency. The only language which such an enemy understands is that of the weapons o£ war, and in the bond campaign which you are pushing for the war effort our people wish you all success.' "That, is the end of the cablegram." Lidice, to which the generalissimo referred, was the Czechoslovakian town where the Germans last June, in reprisal for the assassination of Reinhardt Heydrick, executed the entire adult male population, herded the women to concentration camps, sent the children to "appropriate education institutions" and destroyed the town. "We have work ahead of us," Secretary Morgenthau said. "Certainly we now have a clearer idea of the nature of the enemy with whom we are dealing.

No Shortage Expected of Garden Seed M Victory gardeners avoid concentrating upon certain varieties of vegetables, thereby exhausting the supply of a limited list, there should be no difficulty about everyone getting seed this spring, said James A. Young, executive secretary of the American Seed Trade Association in a press conference in his Chicago office. "Large supplies of seed are in the hands of dealers throughout the country," said Mr. Young. "The supply is larger than last year, when gardeners experienced no difficulties in getting seeds. But where Victory garden advisors recommend particular varieties for all to grow, the supply of these varl- .eties can be quickly exhausted in a community, while equally good varieties o£ the same vegetables may be plentiful. "All the varieties now grown in this country are excellent, and no one need hesitate about taking a different one recommended by his dealer, if the particular one he asks for is not available. The differences between varieties are usually slight. The average gardener will probably detect no difference in the crop. Supplies of new varieties are usually not large and are thus likely to be exhausted first; but the older, standard varieties will be found entirely satisfactory." The seed crop in 1942, said Mr. Young, was excellent. While the goals which had been hoped for were not all equaled, production records were exceeded and even after great quantities of seeds were supplied for lend-lease shipment abroad, the supply for the home market was greater than ever before. "Anyone can understand that there must be no waste of seed," Mr. Young continued. "For a Victory gardener to buy more seed than he needs to plant this year will be harmful to the campaign he is pledged to support. Overbuying will lead inevitably to waste, since seed cannot be carried over a year safely by the average gardener, and it will be almost impossible for him to make sure that hoarded seed will grow next year." Much greater seed supplies are expected to be available next year, Mr. Young concluded, and so far crop prospects are excellent. Much seed is grown on the Pacific coast, where U has already beea planted, Smart to Represent U. of A. in Golf Meet Fayeltcvillc, April 29 —(/?)—Richard "Bubba" Smart, Pine Bluff, will represent the University of Arkansas in the Southwest Conference golf tourney at Houston instead of competing as an individual in the Arkansas invitational at Little Rock Country club next week.

Allied Bombers Hit Wide Area in Europe By the Associated P r ess Allied warplanes pounded both ends of Hitler's European fortress and Soviet fliers apparently made it a three-way assault by raiding East Prussia. The RAF's huge bombers rained destruction on the German naval base at Wilhclmshaven, ending a one - night lull in operations being against the continent, and sowed a large number of mines in the Baltic sea where the Germans perform their U-boat training. Twenty - three RAF bombers were listed as missing. On the southern flank, U. S. heavy bombers attacked th eltali- an port of Naples and the Sicilian ferry terminus at Messina. An Italian communique said the Allies also raided Syracuse and Lampedusa in Sicily. Congress Warned of Long JapWar Washington, April 20 — (/I 1 ) — Fresh warnings from lawmakers that the Pacific war may continue many more years — or "forever" — sparked a new attempt today to prod congress toward aciton bolstering American striking power against the Japanese. While Chairman Reynolds (D-NC> ot the Senate Military committee observed a tightening Nipponese grip on conquered islands is "extremely grave," Senator Chandlci (D - Ky.) broadcast an appeal to citizens to "use your influence will your representatives in govcrnmcn to make them in some way aware of the danger which the country faces from the Pacific." Reynolds declared the Japanese digging - in process is "making Tokyo of every island they've cap lured." "I have no criticism of the Arm or Navy," he said, "and I dcpcnc upon the general staff to run th war. Bui we're not going to go firmly entrenched Japs out of thos islands by bombing alone. It wil lake men, planes and ships." In a radio broadcast last night, Chandler expressed fear that both government and military leaders failed to reconizc "the seriousness of the Japanese mane. "It is suicide, in my opinion," he said, "to permit the Japs time to dig in Ihe Soulh Pacfic. "If they are given this time, I fear that they will grow so strong — both economically and militarily — that the war in the Pacific may last 10 years or 20 years or may go on forever." The Kcntuckian, who headed a special Senate committee to investigate conditions in the Aleutian islands last August and advised strong American reinforcements, cautioned against a possibility of Ihc nation being left to fight the Nipponese alone. He said he believed the government has no assurance of any help from Russia and added that Prime Minister Churchill in a recent speech "at least hinted of the pos sibilily of a partial demobilization of the British when the war in Europe is ended." "Our strategy must be revised,' Chandler added, "in the light ol the present world situation. Our slogan must not only be to beat Hit ler first but it must be 'beat Hitlci and beat Japan and slrike cilhci or both of them wherever ant whenever it seems best. 1 " Critical of Way FSA Bill Was Handled Washington, April 20 —•(#•)— Refusal of the House to appropriate funds for the Farm Security Ad- mlnlstrntion is "very unfortunate and a poor way lo handle important government business,".Representative Fulbrlght (DArk.) said in a newsletter today. Those who want abolition of the FSA, Fulbright said, should present such a bill to the agriculture committee "so that the merits of Ihc question could be intelligently discussed. The approach that was used appears lo be a backhanded method and leaves Ihc feeling thai shrwd parliamentary ladies arc more Important than Ihc rncrils." Fulbright maintained that the whole agriculture department appropriation bill was passed by the House "in a very unsatisfactory condition." "Several important itmcs were stricken from the bill on points ol order," he wrote, "the basic reason being that the committee no ap- ropriations had undertaken to cgislatc extensively in this bill, icrcby depriving the regular com- nittec on agriculture of its ligiti- iiatc jurisdiction. "Much of the debate on (he bill vas taken up by mutual rccrimina- ion by the chairmen of these ommittccs." As the bill finally passed, I'jul- irigltt said, "practically all iin- portant activities in agriculture vere cut to the bone, including ong-tcrm research programs ana even fire prevention i ntlie government forests."
