Reds Enter Outskirts of Novorossisk NEW SAENGER NOW ...but only on* wor.ian loved and understood In tho Llto Story ol LOU GEHRIG Bill Dickey Bob Mcusel Bill Stern Ray Noble and His Orchestra Last Times Today Abbott and Costello in " 'Who Done It" Starts Tuesday Sonja Henie in "Iceland" Also Whispering Ghost" with Milton Berle By EDDY GILMORE Moscow, May 10— (A r >— Red Army forces have penetrated the outer fortifications of Novorossisk, dispatches from the front declared today and are "persistently crumbling tho enemy defenses and breaking into the depths of his positions. The Soviet advance in the Ku'n.ln coincided with continued fighting in the air, which the Russians said had resulted i n the destruction of !):50 German planes in tho last week, and a resurgence of activity in the Lisichansk area in the Donets basin. The air warfare was linked with smashing Russian raids on German communications centers bo- hind (he central and Ukrainian fronts — apparently part of a well - conceived plan lo smash Nazi preparations for a summer offensive. (Today the German communique suggested Russian landings and the top of their Caucasus bridgehead, saying "a large number of enemy landing boats" were destroyed in the waters of Temryuk. The Germans said strong Russian attacks, supported by heavy artillery barrages, strong tank and aerial support in the Kuban were repelled with heavy losses. Other sectors of the front had minor, local engagements, the Berlin broadcast account said. The German air force was said to have made widespread attacks on Russian troop concentrations and railways, and 41 Russian planes were reported downed at the loss of four.) The midnight communique, which tild of the destruction of tho 030 German pianos, said the Red a it-force lost 13!~> aircraft in the week ending Saturday. The fighting near Novorossisk is close and sharp, with violent hand to-hand clashes in the tronche:-, following bayonet charges. Mor tars pour shells upon the opposing lines at close range and long am .short range artillery battery away steadily. The intense fighling is being waged under constant dive bombing and strafing. The war upon Gorman communications behind Ihc Ukranian, central and Kalinin fronts brought fresh destruction upon more than 19 railway junctions. Slormoviks and bombers foil upon Bryansk, Poltava, Belgorod, Smievka, Putivi, Dorogobuzh, Us- pensk and other traffic centers, while another group struck directly at railway trains between Orel and Karachcv. Ril.sk and Vor- ozhba, Novosokolniki and Vitebsk, Lisdinlvo and Zhizdra, Spasdcmy- ansk and Elnya. Tho dispatch from the Kuban front said the Germans, in trying to slave off Ihe newest assaults by the Red Army, were forced to send into the battle reserves which they had planned to use in the summer campaign. The Germans also hurried up new artillery and tank units and threw them into the fighting, which .extended from Ihe marshes of the Sea of Azov down across the mud flats to the Kuban river and from the river southward to Novorossisk The frontline dispatch said largo groups of Germans were still separated from each other and that hourly their position inside Novor- ossisk grows worse. It declared the Germans were employing many tanks and that a number had been cut off from infantry behind the Soviet lines and destroyed. The Russians said at least 150 small craft loaded with soldiers and one transport had been sunk within the past 24 hours in the Black Sea. The Red Army's advance in the Kuban may not be as flashy as some of the successes of the winter campaign, but is slow and sure. The heaviest fighling outside the Kuban area is taking place in the Lisichansk district, where there was no announced change in the situation. About a thousand Germans were reported killed there in the last 24 hours. The Russians yesterday reported they had captured "important positions" in this sector and all German attempts to win them back were reported frustrated. There was increased activity along the Donets with sharp clashes north of Chugucv and south of Balakleya. Artillery duels which have been undo' way west of Rostov for . about two weeks still were in progress. Ruling May Net Arkansas Tax Funds Little Rock, May 10 — (A 1 ) — Revenue Commissioner M. B. McLeod s;ild totlny a ruling by (he judge advocate's department that government - allocated materials were subject to stale taxation should result in collection of about $500,000 sales tax 1'rom Arkansas war contractors. McLeod obtained the ruling during conferences in Washington lust week, Leffel Gentry, special attorney for the revenue department, and Ed McLecs, assistant supervisor of the sales tax division accompanied him on the trip. The revenue commissioner said the government attorneys told him there would be no distinction between allocated and non allocated materials insofar as state taxation was concerned. Government tax- experts will come here soon for conferences on the matter. McLLood sought the ruling after war contractors told him they had been advised by army engineers that govornmpnl - allocated lumber was tax exempt. Allocated materials are those which the government reserves for purchase by contractors on war jobs. McLend said he had learned in Washington that some items used i,, construction of the southwestern proving grounds near Hope were not subject to sales tax and thai Arkansas would realize Isss than the ¥(10.000 taxes it had csli- I At the Saenger "I'm [lie luckiest man in the world," of "The I'riilc of the Yankees," S;iys Gary Cooper in the title role tlie life story of Lou Geli;'r;. mated for this project. Gentry said he would ask the Supreme Court. Wednesday to grant a rehearing in a recent case in which it held that purchases by Arkansas residents from oul of stale firms were exempt from the sales tax. The Tribunal held such transactions were Interstate Commerce. The attorney said he would ask the court to clarify ils holding with regard to the interstate eor.imureo angle "for possible future action."

As she looked from the window of the top story of the Tower, she could see in the bright Pacific moonlight the outlines of a great bay. She remembered, from h?r brief glimpse of the city during daylight, what was down there; but she knew that her glimpse liud only given her the faintest, of hints of the vastness of the United States Army and Navy installations which the night was hiding. Somewhere down there, she knew, were trains unloading men and equipment at docks. Somewhere down there were troopships going out with the tide. She thought of them as being like that tide—flowing across all ol the regions of the world, irresistibly strong, as powerful as destiny itself. Yes, she know how powerful destiny could be, for it had taken her from behind a typewriter in a small automobile agency in a tiny town in Nebraska to the WAAC Officer Candidate class at Fort Des Moines. Now that she was a full-fledged Women's Army Auxiliary Corps third officer, she know that she had only half understood her real reason for joining—that her understanding of it had been more intuitive than intellectual. Now she realized how tremendous had been her latent desire to huive a share in this war for the humanities, us big a share as she tuuld possibly handle. "T IKUTENANT CARTER!" Eelh turned. "Yes. sir." she said. A young man with gold bars on the shoulders of his dress uniform smiled at Her. "General Tallicoe will see you now, Lieutenant Carter." "Yes, sir." She followed the second lieutenant through a dimly lighted corridor to an office where it was obvious work never ceased. The officer at the desk wore tho three silver stars of a lieutenant general. Beth saluted snappily. The gen- oral smiled and returned the salute. The second lieutenant wailed for a moment, then was di=missed. "Lieutenant Carter," said General Tallicoe, "this is a very dangerous and a very secret mission you arc about to perform. I understand you volunteered for it" "Yes, sir." |'Do you still wish to go?" "I shan't turn back now, sir.' 1 "I felt you wouldn't, Lieutenant." General Tallicoe handed Beth an envelope. "Here are your orders, Lieutenant Carter. I am afraid you will learn nothing from them'. Your destination is secret, and Iho^e are merely sufficient to put you on the pay roll when you arrive iou will work directly under Major Jackson." f General Tallicoe pressed a button on his desk. Tho youn;; lieu- .emint reappeared. "Send in Major Jackson," the general commanded. In a moment tho major was there. "Major Jackson, this is Linulon-- diit Carter. She will accompany you." Belli and the major shook hands. It was a strong, friendly lumd- •••nukc, and she gained confidence n him immediately. "Are you ready lo go?" the inu- or asked. "Yes, sir." "Then, sir." Major Jackson said to the general, "with your permission, we will be 011 our way tomorrow after dark." "With my blessing, you mean," the general said. He shook hands with both of them. "Good luck and God bless you." * * * j^ETIi spent the next day at the airport, watching with interest the thousand and one details that preceded the take-off of a giant plane. At nightfall she and Major Jackson boarded a Fortress. A quarter of an hour afterwards, Beth could see nothing but the moonlit bosom ol the Pacific. There had been no chance to talk with Major Jackson—very little chance even to see him. She was conscious that soldiers looked at her with queries in their eyes, that the Fortress crew had regarded her a little curiously. "Maybe they've never seen a WAAC," she said to herself in •imuscment. Then she thought it through soberly and realized that perhaps that very thing was true —thai these Fortress men, fighting men from a front so far away it challenged imagination and now perhaps returning lo that front, had barely heard of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps. She was almost too wide awake to want to slumber, but Major Jack.--on insisted on it. As she lay down, her head pillowed against a parachute, she said a little prayer that her uniform would not be loo rwnplcd in the morning. Then she dii?.c;l. The Fortress sped swiftly on . . . toward ariv. nltire, toward danger, toward a tiny island that .'^emod alniu.'t luo small a speck in 1hc> \-;::-t Pacific to provide a laiuiii;.::; j'ield.

(To lie Continued) State Workers Under Strict Stabilization Litlle Rock, May 10 — tfi>)— Arkansas workers labored loday under a strict employment stabilization plan intended to "Direct an orderly flow of available labor from nonessential activities to occupations and activities important to the war effort." The plan, drafted by the area War Manpower Committee and approved by Regional Director Ed McDonald, Kansas City, will be enforced by the state set-up headed by Director Floyd Sharp. Jobs are classified as essential and non - essential under tho program and certain work, in which there are insufficient qualified workers available, is designated as critical. No employer, Sharp said, will bo permitted lo hire a critical worker except upon referral by the U. S. Employment Service. Essential workers may be hired only if referred by the employment service or if supplied with statements of availability from their most recent employers. These availability statements may be issued: 1. If workers are discharged or laid off for seven days or longer, or for an indefinite period. 2. When referral is in the best interests of the war effort. 3. When denial of referral would result in under hardship lo the individual. 4. When the worker is competent to perform higher skilled work. 5. When a worker is employed for a substantial period at less than full-time. When the distance between the worker's residence and place of employment is unreasonable. . When the worker has compelling personal reasons for changing jobs. When the individual is a critical worker not engaged in a critical occupation in an essental industry. -*»-'»-*^ _ Mrs. T. L May of McCaskiH Dies Sunday Mrs. Thomas L.

He boasted of the "strengthened defenses" of the Dodecanese, Cyclades, Sporades, and other Aegean islands generally. German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, previously reported to have left North Africa to take charge in" the Balkans, was said by London newspapers to have ordered a speedup of new construction by Greek forced labor. The newspapers reported Rommel also had ordered the construction of new strategical highways between Bulgaria and Greece. At the southwestern end of Hitler's conquered territory, the German labor corps was rushing construction of new anti-invasion defenses along the French Mediterranean, according to a German broadcast recorded by the Asso'c- iated Press which also disclosed the key French port of Le Havre had been ordered evacuated. Tass quoted German newspapers, reaching Stockholm that mass arrests have been made at Vichy for "underground subversive "activity," and that special identification cards have been issued to the populations of prohibited zones on the French - Spanish frontier. The invasion theme, though in a different note, also was sounded yesterday by 'Gen. Henri Giraud, who told his French homeland in a broadcast from Algiers that "tomorrow the European fortress will be attacked." He warned the struggle would be "hard and perhaps long." "Don't be impatient," he cautioned Frenchmen. "Don't give pretexts for savage and bloody repression. Wait until we are ready to strike together." And in Italy, where millions '6f Italians were summoned to observances of Army and Empire -Day, Gen. Attilio Teruzzi, minister of an Italian Africa 'that -no longer exists, warned that Italy's whole future was at stake and said "we will fight to the last drop of blood."
