HOP! STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Wednesday, May 12, 1943 hurchill's Arrival in U. S. Exhibits Allied Cooperation lalysis of le News by •Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWlTT MacKENZIE Prime Minister Churchill's arriv- L in Washington is a further stim- ating exhibition of that friendly Allied cooperation and coordination of effort which made the great Tunisian victory possible. It's the Axis debacle in North 'Africa, of course, which has *'brought England's great man f( across the Atlantic again. That has r opened the flood - gala of possibil- ^ ities for direct assault on Hitler's ^European fortress — or what he ^j* hopes is a fortress. It also may ^ ease the way for extension of act-. ° -ivities against the Japs. i- There has been no indication of |vwhat line the Washington confer- *^--ence might take. It would be sur- (.prising, however, if the fundamen- if tai strategy of knocking out Hitler £ first should be abandoned in favor of shifting to the orient. r * We now have Herr Hitler in ser' ious difficulties as the result of the _ policy of concentration. We £' achieved success in. Tunisia by hit>•{ ting the weakened Axis forces 5*'ceaselessly and furiously at many \i points slmultanously. Whether we fare in position to apply these jt y ;methods to the all highest on the r 1 * continent is something which will Ji be determined at Washington in ; consultation with Moscow, but it may easily be the conferees will , decide that the time to catch a ^ June bug is when he's on his back. 1 In any event, intensification of .. operations against the arch gang. ^ster wouldn't preclude extension of activities against the Japanese. Allied production has reached A huge proportions, and the reclama- Jltion of the Mediterranean zone •j'with its invaluable shipping routes ^ has eased the situation so that s doubtless more help can be sent ."fto General Mac Arthur. " "" This is a far different occasion f _ 'om the first meeting of these p>two great figures in August of 1941 %'when they held their historic At- f-rlantie conference. That was less g^than two months after Germany § 'fstruck at Russia with all the pow- •er of the mightiest fighting mac- |*hine eVer constructed. C\ The Germans were swiping all j| before them, and then Master J|Hun's hoarse cries of triumph f, were ringing round the world. ^ Those were days of grim anxiety g^lor the Allies, though never of de- gigpair. ^ * & Despite the gravity of the situa- fe |ion Messrs Roosevelt and Church- K ill' ruled out a peace with "Nazi I; tyranny."

We get a ifair measure of it in the little story . of Nazi Major General Willibald [ Boroweitz, commander of the German Fifth Armored division in Tu- ! nisia, who wept when he surren- Tears squeezed from the brand of Prussian mili- Pilot's Own Story Reveals Tokyo Bombing Was Only Start of Grim Adventure s'tarism, which has been murdering A and pillaging in an effort to eng/slave the world. Then from Cap Bon comes word of the Boche soldiers who rode to ^Voluntary imprisonment in an cart drawn by a plume-be- f r decked horse — and they cheered "^•jvildly as they drove out of the Hitler's invincibles! , To this we really must add the |. Remark of the battle begrimec Yankee general who called for ^•unconditional surrender" —or ft flse — on the American Seconc corps front. Said he: "We split them in two ': kicked Hell out of them." j, So Hitler's story of a super-race JS just a fairy tale after all. He made a lot of people — including Jjijmself — believe it for a long American flyers who bailed out over China after their raid on Tokyo received "magnificent reatment from the natives, says Capt. Harold F. Watson, who rejoined his crew in a small own. "From there to Chungking, by sedan chair and trucks, the people literally welcomed us as if we were gods." That doesn't mean all the Boche ire going to ride gaily to surren- f behind a plume - adorned Arab rse. We have heavy and costly flighting ahead of us — perhaps forne of the bloodiest work of the re war, for we shall be atlack- a powerful enemy on his own ggjrounds. Still, we have the Boche nicely up now and know that we do the job. Yesterday 27-year old Captain Harold F. Watson described his thrilling experience as pilot of one of the American bombers that raided Tokyo. Today, in the second of two articles written for NEA Service, he tells of his sensational getaway from the scene of the bombing to fresh hazards beyond. By CAPT. HAROLD F. WATSON Writtan for NEA Time stood still, as we bombed Tokyo. I looked at my watch. From he time we first flew into the flak until we came out after hitting our arget, only five minutes had passed. Now, with our bomb load dropped, we headed west—through still nore flak—at a much better speed. The AA fire didn't touch us. At about 1:30 we were out at sea and figured we were out of danger. ! relaxed for the first time, and discovered that my hands were cramped from gripping the wheel and that I was wringing wet. Bat I hadn't been too busy to see the Imperial Palace, about two miles north of our waterfront lar- et, or to notice that downtown Tokyo seemed, solid and well constructed, and not flimsy fire trap that many people think. The mission had been a success, but we realized that the rest of it was just beginning. Navigator Busy Griffin, the navigator, was trying his best to try to find a way to get us to China. We knew we couldn't make it, but there was still that spark of hope until Griffin checked the gas against the distance. I got the boys up front and we talked it over. I hud -a plan for some time — pick out a sampan, overpower its crew, crash-land beside it—and sail it in to China. The crew agreed. But before we could carry out the plan we picked up a definite tail wind of about 35 miles an hour. That revived the spark of hope and was the deciding factor. We determined to get as far from Japan as possible and at least reach one of the islands in the China Sea. A light rain beaa n at dusk, and grew steadily worse. I put the ship up to 10,000 feet, then to 18.000, which was as high as we could go without oxygen. But we couldn't break out on top. We came down to 10,000 feet again. I couldn't even see the wing tips. We could only judge where we were by our speed and the time from the last checked spot on the chart. We circled what we thought should be our pre-arranged airport, but couldn't see a thing. So, with about an hour's gas, wo kept on, hoping for clear skies. There are about 5,000 bison in the > puted States. f |f Ymi Suffer Distress From^ .FEMALE WEAKNESS Which Makes You Cranky, Nervous It at such times you suffer from cramps, backache, distress ol "jrreguladUes", periods of the blues— due to functional monthly disturbances— *" Start at once—try Lydia E.

I only knew then that t hurt. I couldn't move it, so I had .o pull it down with my left arm. '. put my right thumb between my ,eeth to keep the arm from flap- Din? around. There was nothing to do but hang there and wait. I guess I was partly "out." for although I lit the ground pretty hard, it did not hurt. Using my left hand I jabbed the hypodermic needle into my g and waited for the morphine to ,ake effect. Nothing happened. Then I put the last dose in my :'ight arm. I woke up at dawn. I was in a valley between two liigh mountains. Immediately £ wondered about the other boys, but :hcy were nowhere in sight. Down the valley I could sec some rice paddies. I made a sling for my arm from the chute, tucked my pistol in the sling and started toward them. Some people were working in the rice fields. I stayed out of sight and watched them until I was pretty sure they were Chinese, for I didn't know but what I was in occupied China. I shouted and waved, and after a good deal of talk one man came toward me. Couldn't Understand I grinned at him and repeated "Li?hu maygwa, lishu maygwa," which we had been told means "I am an American." He simply looked mystified. I tried pidgin English with n o better luck. But he started smiling and nodding when I told him in pantomime that I hud dropped out of an air- piano, that my a;-m was hurt, and that I was hungry and thirsty. I'll never know if those Chinese even knew that I was American, or that there was a war going on, but they gave me magnificent treatment. I stayed two days and nights in their dirt-floored farmhouse, whose living room and four small sleeping rooms housed several generations of a family that totaled 23 members. They fed me bountifully on rice with a thick meat sauce and, of all things, fresh fried eggii. The other crew members had landed close together and had been picked up by a band of Chinese soldiers. None of them was hurt. I rejoined them in a small town on Tuesday. From there to Chungking, by I sedan chair. Ford station wagon 'and army truck, we passed through towns and villages where the people literally welcomed us as if we were gods. The climax came on May 17, whc n Mme. Chiang Kai-shek invited us to a banquet to bo prc- Scott had parachuted a couple of' s f ntcd tn tho Generalissimo. Our times before, and told us what to i u . ? S WC ' r ° unbol 'cvably filthy, do. We planned to jump as close ; °J J,_™ deul ,' s . feel us i£ wc wcrc together as possible, stay where we lit that night, and join up the next morning. The gas indicator showed empty, but the engines were still running. We shook hands with Scott, who went 10 the rear hatch. We loaded up with what we wanted,cigarettes, first-aid kits, morphine tubes. We tried lo carry on a conversation, but everybody was pretty busy with his own thoughts. So we ate a couple of candy bars and finished our coffee. Everyone kept checking his parachute and harness. i Time to Step Out in our dress blues. "I envy you very much," Mme. Chiang told us. "You have looked down upon the Japanese."

Strength of Top Ball Clubs Yet to Be Tested BY JUDSON BAILEY Associated Press Sports Writer The major league sciison Is three vecks old, but there is an evident videsppread reeling that the games Jlayed thus fur have proved very iltlc about the ultimate strength of the various teams. Two teams in each loop — the SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON, JR. Wide World Sports Columnist lar indicates. Their not bcc n as strong raft Brooklyn Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals in the National, and the New York Yankees and Cleveland ndians in the American — have stablished thacmsclvcs as pennant possibilities. But they wore rated is such before the season started ind nothing they have clone in their ••arly games has been particularly iislinguishing. For this reason the start of cast- vest play today in the two circuits vas looked forward to eagerly. 'he western clubs seem to hold he balance of power in boih eagues. The Yankees have a good chance of holding their two game lead in the front rank. Their makeshift ineup has shown potential strength. The rookies in the infield invc been doing well; Johnny Lindoll, the pitcher converted into an outfielder and placed eighth in .he batting order, has landed imong the American League's ten leading hitters; and the pitching las been satisfactory. New York's road trip will be opened against the weakling White Sox at Chicago, which also should rielp the Yanks because the Indians will be on the defense at Cleveland against a strong, fourth-place Washington club. They play a night name tonight. Another question to be answered is whether the Boston Red Sox are really as pitiable as their present place in the American League eel- pitching has ... as expected. Jim Tabor has flopped at third base and the outfield has been unpredictable. However, the fact they had to meet the Yanks eight times in their first 18 games may have had something to do with the Sox' slow start. Boston opens at St. Louis today and the Philadelphia Athletics will be at Detroit. In the National League Brooklyn and St. Louis will be up against about equal opposition for the start of the intcrsectional struggle, the Dodgers playing the Pittsburgh Pirates in a twilight game and the Cardinals invading Boston. To date the Dodgers have ap pea red slow, light hitting and uncertain in their pitching. It has not been as good a ball club as it looked in spring training. Although leading the league by two games, the club is not as far in front as its admirers had predicted when the Dodgers set out to feat on the Phillies, Braves and Giants. The Cardinals, lacking their full strength at the start, have had the expected bitter battles with their western rivals, Chicago and Cincinnati. Now for the first time they will be meeting the kind ol opposition previously faced by Brooklyn. The Cincinnati Reds, still an unknown quantity, open their eastern junket at Philadelphia and the Chicago Cubs visit the New York Giants at the Polo Grounds. Like the Red Sox in the American League, the Cubs figured to be higher. They're hoping that it is true that the eastern clubs arc not as tough as the ones they've bccn meeting in the west. New York, May 12 (/!') — One of the choicer bits of sports nonsense is the "war" going on in the Pacific Coast Conference over southern schools decides they'd played a double round - robin schedule and let the six northern teams shift for themselves. The northern schools didn't like being shoved out of the big tlough sector and they let everybody know it. . . What makes it especially silly is that there's nothing official about the plan and there can't be until the ten faculty representatives meet June 14, and there's no telling what they'll decide. Long Range View From this distance, even 500 niles looks like a heck of a distance to travel for a football game, no mutter how much mileage .hey save Being safe from jrickbats, we respectfully suggest they all look into some real jackyard schedules, even if U.S. C. has to play the San Diego Bombers and California the St. Mary's Prc-Flight School every Saturday. Sports and Shells The National Hockey League, which won't name a new president until after the war, is looking around for a comparatively young candidate who knows a little about nockcy and enough about law to straighten out the tangles the clubs get themselves into. . . For the first time in about ten years, Louisiana State won't be the favorite in the Southeastern Conference track meet Saturday. The experts arc picking Mississippi State . . . Mickey Owen, usually hard - to - sign guy, won't have another salary argument with the Dodgers until 1940. Branch Rickey gave him a three - year contract this spring. . .
