Friday, Moy 28, 1943 End War Conference May Mark Final Stage of Global Conflict -I. . . Washington. May 28 — (tf>) -— ^Conclusion of the strategy conference between President Hoosevell and Prime Minister Churchill was viewed j n some quarters today as marking the beginning of ' the final phase of this global war -- a in which the United Nation dselined to undertake full offensives mid the Pacific. , The end of the historic meeting was announced by Mr. Koose- jVell late yesterday, lie said simply "complete agreement" had been reached on future What those plans are will come known only as they in action. . The wording of the president's 'statement, however. suggested that when the conference began there were questions of vast stra- in both, Kurope plans, be- unfold Igical importance which required answering to the satisfaction of both Il.-itish and American leaders. The fact, as Mr. Roosevelt indicates, they have now b e e n answered leaves no doubt that decisions of supreme importance have been made. The president's statement said only this: < "The conference of the c o rn- bined staffs in Washington has ended in complete agreement on future op-rations in theaters of the war." Thai the war against Japan received Ihe fullest c.-onsidralion was made clear by Mr. Churchill in his address lo Congress. Yet it was equally clear that there had be-on no change in Ihe grand slra- tegy previously agreed upon lo smash Germany first and Japan The Oil Industry Gives Thanks To B. R. HAMM He was long ago rated a success in the Automobile Industry—but installing the Dodge-Plymouth agency in its own modern building is a magnificent example to business men at this particular time. We congratulate him for having given courage to all business, by this expression of confidence in his Country, his Industry, and his Town. For this renewal of our faith in the future we again congratulate him. M. S. BATES, Distributor *f Gulf Refining Co. Products second. In (he absence of any hints ns to what the conference accomplished in cither the military or political fields, Informed persons here speculated on the probab- lily of severn I future developments: The present strategical bombing of Germany will be followed by an Allied invasion of the continent this summer. U will develop ill limes and places where t h e :it limes and places where the all- Amorican drive In throw Hie Japanese ,m|. ,,f (| 10 Aleutian islands bo- (,'an wllh a surprise flanking attack on Atlu rather than a frontal assault on Kiska. The war in Ktirope is expected to be won by soinetinje next year at the lalesl. but Hie conflict in the Pacific may run on until Ifl'lfi or l!M(i, accordinj.; to reliable estimates. The forces available for use against Japan's Pacific flank have been greatly increased. President Roosevelt revealed nt a recent 01 es* conference lhat 11V,, bulk of American strength already was in the Pacific. When,' those forces grow sufficiently strong and the lime is right, there probably will be an American thrust which will so directly threaten Japanese vital interests that the Japanese fleet will be compelled to fit-lit. Destruction of thai fleet, is generally considered to b o the primary objective of the ' American naval high command. Occupation of new island bases, now that the Southwest Pacific have been secured, is secondary to that purpose. But Japanese strategy has become so defensive within Hie last six months that they no longer appear willing to Hunt for a position which they do not need vitallv. Their failure to make a counterattack by sea on United Stales forces at Atlu island — w h i c h stands in direct contrast to the long struggle they pul up for Guadalcanal — not only doomed Iheir garrison there but also at their main Aleutians base on Kiska. .. The weakest spot in the Allied ring around China al present, observers here agree, is on the continent of Asia. China which could be made a formidable offensvie base, is isolated from British and American arsenals except by air transports from India. Deopeii- iii" of the Burma road remains the number one task of the Allied forces in India so bulk supplies may be moved into China rapidly. The presence of Field Marshall Sir Archibald Wavll the Allied chief in India, and his top sea and air officers in Washington for Hie Roosevelt-Churchill talks gave considerable weight to speculation that a drive to brek I h e Japanese hold on Burma is a primary objective of Hie high command. Participation of Russia in the war against Japan would quickly solve the problem of bases from which to bomb (he main Japanese islands, but this may not be possible at least until the war in Europe is won.

NUNN, Commission Agent SINCLAIR HC OIL PRODUCTS <*> HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Search Begins for Idle Farm Machinery Washington. May 28 — (/T 1 ) — The War Kood Administration embarked today on a nationwide search for idle farm machinery, annnuiieiiig it would be requisi- lloned by the government and distributed where it is needed most lo boost food production. The WI'A promised farmers a reasonable price tor such machinery. How much could bo salvaged for release to activ* production areas lias nol been estimated. A .-.poki«:man said a windfall of farm implements was left by Japanese removed from their west coast farms after Pearl II a r b o r and this probably will gel i| lc firsl attention in the campaign. The county war boards have boon instructed In look around for machinery not being used now, or excpctcd lo be put inlo service this slimmer. Their findings will be submitted to state headquarters with recommendations for acquiring specific pieces and the State War Board chairman then is lo proceed wilh Ihe purchase. Owners will be paid coiling prices or "fair appraisal" values if not ceiling;; have been established, and the equipment will be resold to farmers who need it. In making their recommendations for requisitions, the county war boards will certify (1) whether Ihe owner of (he machinery is known to them (2) that he is nol a member of the armed forces: and (.')) that he has been notified that the machinery is needed and has refused to negotiate with a responsible purchaser. Where the owner is nol known lo the war board, the board will report the amount and kinds of machinery involved. circumstances under which it is being held, and ils precise location. Also, the county war boards must, certify to their slale boards that the machinery is needed to meet food production goals within Hie localities and that responsible purchasers can be found for the machinery when it is requisitioned. The county war boards will post public notices that Ihe machinery will be requisitioned and sold at a specified time and place.

That agreement — Involving Canada, Argenlina, Australia, the Uniled States and Great Britain — is designed lo promote postwar stability of wheat prices and supplies. Consumers were cautioned by Chairman Richard K. Law of the British delegation against expecting a quick achievement of conference aims. In a broadcast, law said it would be absurd to suppose that "problems of this complexity can be finally solved by a conference al Mot Springs — or anywhere else." "Im not saying thai the problem won't be solved. It, will be. All I am saying is thai if I h c work thai has been begun by the •M nations represented here is carried to fruition, a generation or two from now, the problems that perplex us won't be the s a in e problems that, baffled us Ion years ago."

GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, May 28 —UP)— Rye rallied fro mine day's lows today after declining about a cent, but could nol recoup all of Ihe previously lost ground. Some local traders took to the buying side in a much lighter trade than has characterized recent sessions. Some hedge selling appeared in September wheat and all contracts of that grain weakened. Thero were reports of cash wheat being offered more freely in the west. Oals sank on commission house selling on the basis of fairly liberal imports of Canadian oats into this country. At the close wheat was i-4—3-4 lower, July $1.43 3-4—7-8, September $1.44 1-8—$1.44. corn was unchanged, July $1.05, oats were off 1-8—1-2 and rye finished 1-4 lower I to 1-8 higher. SOMETIMES-ON SOME CALLS-THE LONG DISTANCE OPERATOR WILL SAY*— *Pkase limit your call to 5 minutes. Others are waiting' ..any Long Distance calls go through about as fast as ever. But sometimes there's an extra-heavy rush on certain circuits—especially to war-busy places. Whenever that happens, the operator will ask you to limit your Long Distance calls to 5 minutes. The idea is to give everybody a fair share of the wires. That gets to be more and more important every day. SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE CO. PAGE FIVE- We Congratulate B. R.
