HOPS StAFt, HOPS, ARKANSAS GOP Opposes Bill to Strip WPB Authority WnshinKton. May 11 —(/p>— Leg- islnlion to strip-the Wiir Production Board of its nuthorily over civ- ilin n supplies landed in a bramble patch of Republican opposition today when it was sent over to the House by the Senate. Rep. Wolcoll (H-Mich). ranking minority member of the House Banking Committee which gives first consideration to the measure expressed the opinion thai it "sets up another agency which is bound to confuse (lie whole set-up " and declared: "Unless n lot of restrictions are written into it, it win encounter yesterday, 21 of them joining eight Democrats in opposition, while? ten Republicans voted for the measure on the 44 tn 23 ballot. Introduced by Senator Maloney (D-Conm, (h c measure would give the new civilian supply agency n claim to materials and"services'as authoritative as that of the army, the Navy or any other agency. Bui Republican Leader McNar'y of Oregon told the Senate the Legislation was liable to lead to a conflict in jurisdictions. editorially that "expected and accountable agitation has changed into unreasonable unrest, which has assumed a dangerous and intolerable form." Ancla continued, saying further that Do Tolcgraaf of 'TAGt THttt Amsterdam termed "mo.st serious." stiff opposition in the House ' Wolcott said he construed legislation as an attempt to the settle by congressional action friction between the War Production Board and the armed forces over priorities sought by both the armed services and civilian agencies. The bill would empower an administrator appointed by the president to determine the needs for rationing and to ascertain the types and quantities of materials, manpower and other services necessary to keep the civilian population "healthy and functioning effectively." The new agency would replace the office of civilian requirements recently organizd by WPB Chairman Donald M. Nelson. Republicans generally opposed the bill when the Senate passed it SERIAL STORY Nazis Decree State of Siege in Holland London, May 11 — (,/p> _ Th e Netherlands News Agency Anctfi' quoted reports today (hat a state of siege had been decreed throughout Nazi - occupied Holland and that 20 Dutch patriots had been executed and 10 others sentenced to death as a result of disorlers apparently connected with tin attempt to stage a general strike. Aneta said the state of sige was ordered by Arthur Syszinquart. riechs commissioner for occupied Holland, and quoted the Stockholm newspaper Svenska Dagbladet as saying it resulted from "serious clisutrbanccs" following a Nazi order for rointernment of all former Netherlands Army members as prisoners of war. Ancia added that serious interruptions of (lie supply of food in the country resulting from strikes were reported. The German - con- trolled press in the country said the situation stringent censorship on Holland, there were indications during the past week of serious -disorders, Aneta- said, adding that the German - controlled Netherlands .radio mentioned a "short, fierce action" and told the people it was futile to "fight yourselves to death of German machine in the fire guns." The news agency said that a state of "police martial ] a w" was proclaimed in four provinces April HO and was cxlcnded lo the remainder of the nation the next day — the state of siege apparently being an intensification of the measures. Aneta death sentences for those excuted were announced May 2 — the day they were excuted' — by Police General Ranter, head of the German police und Storm Troop formations in Holland, who assumed control of all police when martial law was proclaimed. The 20 were put to death after sum- mady action by special police tribunals set up within the two days preceding, it was reported. Aneta said it was learned thai the reintcrdnmcnt applied to Navy as well as Army members.

High tide, Beth knew, would immerse it. "Think of it," commented Major Jackson. "What an air base in this day of modern warfare! Let Nature do her own camouflaging. We land. We refuel from buried tanks capable of keeping the sea out and the gasoline in. We take off. The tide comes up and the waves erase our wheel tracks in the sand and pack the particles anew for the next landing. The fellow who thought of this had something." Her eyes verified enough of Major Jackson's description so that she could easily believe the rest. The major left her for a moment to talk with one of the pilots. When he returned to Beth's side, he asked, "How did you make out last night?" "Comfortably." He laughed. "There was some doubt that you would." "Anyone who had any doubts didn't know very much about the WAACs," she replied. They walked along the sand She watched the sea, and noticed that even now the island wa shrinking with each successive onrush of the ocean. She tried t estimate how long this bit of sand was, and guessed two miles; ye it was so flat that an accurate estimate was impossible, and th sand • was packed so tightly i could have been used as an automobile speedway just as successfully as it was being used as a landing field. As they strolled Axis Prospects Bleak Attlee Tells Commons BY E. C. DANIEL London, May 11 (/p)— Axis prospects In their final African stand on Cap Bon peninsula "are bleak," Dcput Prime -Minister Clement A. At Hoc told a cheering House ol Commons today. The battle thus far has gone well, Attlee said. "H is still too early to say how long the last net will last or to speculate on the enemy's hope of "But 1 think one can say that with no large towns or ports on resistance or escape." he added which to base themselves and only the Cap Bon peninsula in their hands, their prospects are bleak" Britain's First Army suffered 1,200 casualties in the final stage of the advance on Tunis and Bi- zerte and a total of 8,400 since April 17, he said, from April 20 to May 3 were just over 2,400, including wounded and missing, he said. These losses, he said, compared with 50,000 Axis prisoners—mostly Germans - taken since May 5, and the number of Axis prisoners is "continually increasing." The deputy prime minister gave the government's appraisal of the "crushing defeat" inflicted on the Axis in the first general war statement give in the House since the review Feb. 11 of the Casablanca and Adana conferences, and it followed a brief secret session of the House. Attlee opened the statement with praise for the "very practical example of Allied cooperation" between the armies of the three nations, and ground, air and sea forces obtained under the direction of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and Gen. Sir Harold R.L.G. Alexander. It was on the central front, Attlen staled, that Gen. Sir Bernard L~ Montgomery achieved the breakthrough that led to the fall of Tunisia's two principal port cities. Preliminary preparations included formations from said. The First Army strengthening the First Army with r " '"' " the Eighth, he „. , „ .- covered the linal 30 miles in 3G hours, demoralizing Axis 'forces. "It was a real thunderbolt," he quoted Gen. Alexander as describing the final thrust. At almost the same time American tanks entered Bizerle after a thrust "across extremely difficult country," he said. On Sunday morning all that was left of the German Fifteenth Armored division surrendered' to the British Seventh Armored Division, he said, adding: "These two veterans of the desert had been at each other's throats for the best part of two years. Praising the results of combined actions by the RAF and American airforces, Attlee said that "the number of sorties by our airforces compared with those of the enemy was generally something like four lo on," and added that the combined Allied airforces gained complete domination of the air. Understanding between ground and air fores reached a "pitch of perfection that we never hithrto at- Uiincd," he added. He finished amid loud cheers.

She closed her eyes and found it easy to imagine that she was at home, enjoying a pleasant holi- a friend whose only were the every-day problems of small-town life. *I wish we could stay here forever," Beth said, softly. Brit Jackson laughed. "You and I have work to do," he said. 'Important work. This island looks peaceful enough, but you can't forget the war, no matter how much you'd like to." "I know," Beth answered. "I'm ready, Major Jackson." They could hear the whirr of the plane's motors as it wanned up for the take-off. The crew was swarming over the big ship, checking every detail for the important flight ahead. Steadily, they moved away from the landing place. Before long they would be alone. Beth wondered what Brit Jackson had to say. She had been too excited, too thrilled by prospects of her overseas duty, to give much thought to her assignment. Major Jaeltswi was silent, phrasing m his mind the words he had lo say * * * j^/JAJOR JACKSON smoked until his cigaret was nothing but a menace to his fingertips. Then he tore the butt apart and tossec the tobacco and the tiny rolled-up wad of paper to the wind, which was blowing freely and steadily. "It's time you knew what you were going to do, Lieutenant,' Major Jackson said. They were out of earshot of the crew now. The major stopped, and so did she, and he turned toward her. She looked at him. It was the first time she had realized how young and handsome he was. It was also the first time she had noticed his insignia. Noticing it, she was amused at how wrong she had been in jumping at conclusions. She had supposed he was an Air Corps officer, and perhaps a full 10 years older than the just-under-30 he appeared to be. Actually, he wore the crossed cannon with shell superimposed wh'ch denote the Coast Artillery Corps. * * $ JJETH noticed that Brit Jackson was scrutinizing her very closely, too; and she sensed that the view was not unpleasant to lim. "It's time you knew," he began ngain. "Lieutenant, you are my one-man staff, if you don't mind ny calling you a man. That's vhat you are, for the purpose of defending the nation. You are one-man staff of the commanding officer—I am he—of 'a "oast Artillery Barrage Balloon Battalion.

It is a very important island already, and we hope it will be even more important as the war continues. Meanwhile it is our task—among other things—to gel a balloon barrage flying so that our further operations will be protected from enemy air attack. You know, like the airplane factory at Southampton was protected." She know what Major Jackson referred to. She had never been with barrage balloon troops, but she had read in newspapers and magazines about the barrage over Southampton, and how it kept the Spitfire factory running almost without interruption. "Your staff role," the major continued, "lias been designed for your peculiar abilities." There was a trace of good-humored sarcasm in his voice. "I am told you women are quite intuitive. You will need all your intuition out here. You arc to help men, among other things, make sure there are no leaks of information concern- ins our island." "Are any leaks suspected?" "I am sorry to say there are. You needn't ask me any more. They just are—not that anything .ictuaJly has slipped. We're just suspicious without being able to suspect any individual." Tiie plane was ready to go. ''We'd better get on," the major said. "You know, we're just pas- •engers. By the way, if t'hose Air Corps men kid us, we'll just have o take it—the Air Corps looks down on everybody, and I know how they feel. I was a flyer once myself." Hi s face was grave.

Uncle .says my capillaries won't take coinbi.it." The Fortress took off. Hour after hour passed, until it was late afternoon. Suddenly Major Jackson shook Bcth's shoulder. "lieutenant Carter," he said his mouth close to her ear. "A pair of Jap fighter planes has been sighted off our left wing." (Xo Kn t'tmtiimea) _ ^ Knox, talking at a press conference, declined to estimate how long it would be after the final clean - up in Tunisia before t h e Mediterranean route could be thrown open with supply ships operating under an Allied air umbrella from the northern rim of Africa. He said, however, that the opening obviously would be of "tremendous advantage because of the shortening of the routes to the Middle East," which he estimated would average about 5,000 miles. Asked whether German planes from, the continent and f r o m such places as Sardinia and Sicily would not try lo keep the great niland sea closed to Allied shipping, Knox said that they "W ILL attempt to. undoubtedly, but they won't be able to." So long as the Axis holds Sicily, the big island at the toe of Italy' the enemy air threat to convoys will remain fairly high, Knox indicated, and he said that "possession of Sicily by the Allies obviously would be a tremendous asset." Knox opened his press conference by declaring that he desired to express "on behalf of the Navy congratulations to the Army on the magnificent victory in Tunisia." He said congratulations were in order also for the British Navy and the American - British a i r forces "for the effectiveness with which they cut off supplies to the enemy." south of Moghrane, just to the north of Zaghouan and about 30 miles west of Hammamet. So completely blotted out was the erman air force in this theater hat just one enemy plane was seen n the Tunisian sky. It was a Focke - Wulf 190 fighter'and it was Irying lo slip away. II was shot down. The Naval section of the com- munique said five small boats were sunk off Cap Bon yesterday and Sunday night in mopping up the detachments caught at ~ea, and said many prisoners had been captured. Among them was a German general caught trying to escape. That made seven generals captured. "Intense naval activity still prevails off the. coast of Cap Bon peninsula where large fires were seen last night. The coast is closely watched and blockaded and the work continues," said the c o m- munique. The Allied air forces sent over 100 medium bombers to smash Pantellaria Island airfield, 40 miles off Cap Bon, for the fifth time in three days, while a strong force of Flying Fortresses ham- : mered the airfields of Milo and Borizzo in Sicily. Malta's squadrons of fighler- bombers assailed Biscari, Marsala and Porto Empedocle in Sicily, -unloading bombs on airfields, railway stations and power stations. Four - engined RAF planes delivered the second important attack on Messina, in Sicily, in 24 hours. So nearly knocked out is P a n- lellaria air base mat only one ei;e- my aircraft came up to meet the bombers. It was an Italian plane and, after seeing the size of the formation, the pilot decided to keep out of the way. A small fleet of landing craft and dock installations also were attacked here. A violent explosion amidst the jetties and warehouses was seen by the departing bombers after they were 10 miles away. Light bombers and fighter- bombers maintained a round - the- clock strafing of roads and a few small boats. Night flying Hurricanes caught motor traffic in the path of their flares and other airmen fiercely bombed the airfields at Kourba, Menzel Temie and Cap Ras Addar at the extreme northern tip of the cape where a number of Junkers transports were wrecked. In typical sweeps, a Spitfire wrecked two staff cars, six trucks and a trailer on Ihe road north of Hammamet, while a Hurricane shot up a small boat containing 10 NICELY FURNISHED MOUSE IN Apply Hope Ilr3tp good neighborhood. :Star.
