HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Russia Getting Most U.S. Lend Lease Aid Washington, May 25 — (If}— President Roosevelt, accounting for $11,102,472.000 in lend-lease aid in j a little more th;>6 two years, dis- ' closed today that more actual fighting equipment had been sent tq Russia than any other country. Through March 31. the Soviet union received $ in planes, tanks, motor vehicles, ammunition, ordnance and water craft to help check the Nazi hordes, Mr. Roosevelt said in a letter to Congress. "Today, we are out - building the aggressors in every category of modern arms," he sasertecl, "and we are delivering them in the amounts necessary to builld up the striking power for offensives that will end only in Berlin and Tokio. "As lend-lease moves ahead in its third year, our armed forces. our supplies, and the combined efforts of the United Nations are driving ahead to complete victory over the enemy." Some of the lend-lease assistance has been in the form of goods and services made available in this country, such as training planes and the repair of ships. So the export total from the time lend-lease operations began on March 11, 1941. through last March 31 is only 57,105,000,000. That is exclusive of $700,000,000 in planes and ships delivered by air or sea. The United Kingdom got $3,116.000,000 worth of the exports and Russia $1,822,000,000. But in actual fighting gear, Russia's SI.041,000,- 000 overshadowed Britain's $881,000,000. The Soviet Union, the report said, has obtained thousands of planes, tens of thousands of trucks, jeeps and other motor vehicles, more than 1,000,000 tons of food, several million pair of army boots. J hundreds of thousands of tons of armor plate, steel, aluminum, copper, zinc, TNT and chemicals and various types of machine tools, power generating equipment and railway supplies. The largest exports of industrial items, such as metals and machinery, and of foodstuffs, went to the British, however. The report indicated more emphasis would be placed on food shipments to Russia from now on "in order to maintain the rations of the Soviet army." It said food will have this year a priority on a par with planes and trucks on Russian - bound vessels. Russia's delegation to the United Nations food conference at Hot Springs, Va., emphasized at a press conference yesterday that the Soviets were in urgent and immediate need o£ food. The extent of lend-lease aid to China was lumped together in the • president's report with that for India. Australia and New Zealand. Those four countries have received exports valued at 8375,000.000. China received $88,000,000 in material. Untied Nations' leaders, inducing the president and Prime Minister Churchill of Britain, rppeatcd- ly have emphasized the importance —and the difficulty — of greater as- sitance for the Chinese. Mr. Roosevelt said last week that fairly satisfactory progress was being rnade. "New land routes are being developed to increase lend-lease shipments into China," the report to Congress asserted, "and the reopening of the Burma road is among the strategic objectives of our forces." The chief executive's letter stressed the vitcory in North Africa and said lend-lease operations there had demonstrated how a freed people can aid in the defeat of the Axis. Their support, it said, "will reflect in active cooperation at the proper time by millions still to be liberated."

J. L. Wright. Acting Administrative Officer for the Triple-A in Arkansas, has informed Earl N. Martindale, chairman of the Hempstcad County Triple-A committee. "Farmers having insurance on their cotton crops," Mr. Wright said, 'will be expected to replant their cotton as long as those who do not have insurance do so. The regulations of the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation provide that where any acreage of cotton is not replanted to cotton in areas and under circumstances where the corporation determines it is customary to replant an adjustment should be made to production equal to the insured production on such acreage. The loss adjustment procedure provides that failure to plant or replant in those areas where planting is general or customary is a cause of loss not insurd against. "Any producer who would like to have his cotton acreage released in order that he might devote the land to a crop which has been designated as a war crop by the Secretary of Agriculture, even though he has sufficient time to replant the cotton, may secure the release of this land when a properly prtparcd inspection report has been approved by the county committee. No premium will be charged for such acreage of cotton released for a war crop and no indemnity will be clue on such released acreage." Mr. Wright staled thai provisions of Ihc rcgulalions must be followed and that farmers who have insurance on their cotton should make every effort possible to replant any cotton drosvned out by the flood waters as the FCIC will not be liable for losses claimed unless regulations are followed. . «•» »«••Mrs. Messer to Be Buried on Thursday Funeral services for Mrs. Lula Messer, 65, resident of Hempstcac for many years who died yesterday at the home of a daughter on Em met Route 3, are to be held at I p. m.

May Substitute With Cotton Washington, May 20 — iYP) —Senator McClcllan (D - Ark.) said today he understood thai Chester Davis, war food administrator, will issue an order soon permit- ling cotton growers whose crops lave been destroyed by floods to transfer their acreage quotas to ither lands when necessary. More cotton lands have been damaged in Arkansas than in any other stale, McClellan said. In many instances, he explained, ... is impossible lo replant on Ihc same lands. The farmers' quotas are identified with particular tracts of land, he said, and a few regulation is necessary to give those farmers relief. ire.t It F l> . < City T posi office an4 iuie 000000 Pfini m (he »pjc« provide J belo* the niir.e of the ne,iH nt the fi the rounty in »lmh per.ans included m th» application Inc. and i complete nuilin* addres.
