>AGE FOUR HOP£ STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Friday, June 4, 1943 .. Allied Activities Indicate Occupation of Panfellerig ®Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZlE Again today Allied headquarters in North Africa report naval bombardments of the pint-size but powerful Italian island of Pantelleria, which the National Geographic Society aptly describes as the cork in the Mediterranean bottle-neck between Sicily and Tunisia. Shelling of this fortress is atken by the continent as further substantiation of the belief that tho occupation of the island is imminent. This is on the bas'.? that such bombardment often is the final step though not necessarily — in preparation for suca an operation. In any event, it's true that the Mediterranean is feverish with signs of approach invasions. Not or-Jy Pantelleria but the grstt islf-nd of Sicily, which forms one side of the bottle-r;oc •:, and neighboring Sardinia, also have been so thoroughly sowed with bombs that it shouldn't be long before they are ready to bring forth fruit. Along with these activities, Spain has further reports of movements of great United Nations convoys in the western end of the Mediterranean and this naturally gives a fillip to Axis speculation. As a matter of fact there's no particular reason to doubt the reports about convoys since such fleets can't be hidden and it's significant that Allied ships are able to sail those troublous waters without undue interference. It's quite possible that Allied strategy may contemplate the occupation of Pantelleria before pro- ceeding with invasion" of Sicily, Sardinia and perhaps the Italian mainland. The reason would lie in the fact that Pantelleria, which for size is only a pimple on Ihe face of. Allied progress, is a mighty dot strategically. This cocky little island, which contains only thirty-two square miles, stands right in the middle of the eastern mouth of the ninety-mile-wide channel between Tunisia and Sicily, and is in position to rase hob with Allied shipping. All our vessels must go through this narrow, shallow channel and run the ganllct o£ Panlellcria's big guns. Invasion of Sicily will be no child's play, adnnd the Allies need absolute freedom of movement in the channel if and when that operation begins. Therefore it wouldn't be surprising to see a preiminary move to dispose of Patellcria. This volcanic knob in the Mediterranean is sometimes called the Italian Malta, which is by way of being a back-handed tribute to England's powerful naval and air base on the island of Malta, lying a little to the southeast of Pantelleria. Mussolini fortified his possession heavily in 1937 in order to counter Malta. Pantelleria's crest is volcanic and, while Ihis keeps quiet, it still tells the world o£ hidden fires by emitting steam and producing hot springs. It has a steep coast and possesses only one good harbor, and it's this which Allied warships have been shelling the past few days, presumably softening it up for eventualities. It's well that we should be acquainted with Pantelleria, because it really is an important item in Allied calculations for that area. Its strategic value has been recognized for thousands of years, and it was fought for by the ancient Romans and Carthaginians. Not that it really matters much to the present operations, but scientists tell us that prehistoric tribes of Neolithic men lived on this island. So Pantelleria is wise in the ways of all sorts of war. SUN- Cool the burn of sunburn. Sprinkle with Mexsana, formerly Mexican Heat DIIDkl Powder. Relievo heat DUI\fl rash too. Get Mexaana.

Washington, June 4 — (IP) — A new order of the petroleum administration for war clears the way for expanded development of the Dorcheat-Macedonia oil and gas field in Columbia county, Arkansas. Coinciding with desires of Arkansas authorities, the administration said the order modified restrictions on the use of materials and drilling operatons which could slow down production. Briefly, the new regulations permit operators to use materials and drill wells without specific application for each proposed well as required previously, provided the adhere to certain conditions. These conditions were outlined as follows: All wells must be drilled on at least an 80-acre drilling unit located entirely in either the north or south half of a regular quarter ection. The well location must be vithin 150 feet of the center of the [riling unit. Where the smackover line is productive, wells must be drilled to and produced from the smackover, jut the operator has the option of producing as well from the cotton valley formation. He likewise is permitted to consolidate a quar- er seciton of 160 acres for two wells if they are in the approximate centers of the 80 - acre halves with one in the smack- over lime. If the smackover lime is not productive, wells must be drilled from an oil sand in the cotton valley formation but may be doubled within the cotton valley formation to produce both oil and gas. Gas and condensate are produced from the smackover lime. Gas and oil arc found at shallower depths in the cotton valley formation. Southern Lead Changes Hands for Third Time By The Associated Press The Southern Association lead changed hands last night for the third time in three nights as Nashville grabbed two games from Birmingham to knock the Barons from their perch at the top of the standings. Nashville came from behind in both games to defeat Birmingham, 8-6 and 15-9. The Vols overcame a five - run lead in the first chapter and gave away a seven - run margin in the afterpiece before they pulled ahead to victory. Little Rock Hurlcr Frank Papish, worked as a relief moundsman in both games of a double - header against Atlanta after having won a two - hitter from the Crackers the previous night. Papish wasn't credited with a win in cither of last night's contests, but at least he was on the winning team in th e second game. Atlanta took 13 innings to win the first game of the twin bill at Little Rock," 0-5, but dropped the seven - inning second half, 3-5. The first game was played under protest after the 12th inning when Trav. Manager Buck Fausett claimed Atlanta Catcher Bobby Dews interferred with his bat as Pitcher Ed Lopat tried in vain to steal home. Chattanooga's ace moundsman. Bucky Jacobs, suffered a twisted knee going after a bunt in the second game against Memphis and was replaced by Gil Torres. The Lookouts won the game, 8-1, but they lost the opener, 3-4. Knoxville stretched its victory string to five games in taking the first game from New Orleans, 8-7, in ten innings, but the win Marathon ended in the nightcap when the Pels took a 11-8 decision. Today's games and probable pitchers: New Orleans (Rogers) at Knoxville (Coffman) Atlanta (unannounced) at Little Rock (Hudlin and Moran) (double) header) Birmingham (Garner) at Nashville -(McCall) Chattanooga (Surralt) at Mcm- phsi (Drees).

By JUDSON BAILEY Associated Press Sports Writer The National League is having a two-horse race for tho pennant and it's a ..good show the Brooklyn Dodgers and SI. Louis Cardinals arc giving the fans. But the really wide-open scramble is in the American League where the sixth place club is closer the lead than is the third club in the National. Furthermore it wouldn't take much to make all eight clubs contenders. The New York Yankees have been showing the way except for one lapse ever since the season started, yet they have not convinced anybody they arc a real good ball club. Certainly they have not convinced Luke Scwcll, manager of the last place St. Louis Browns, whom the Yanks beat yesterday 2-1 when Bob Muncricf forced home the deciding run in the ninth inning with a walk. It was the 12th loss in 15 games for the Browns and eight of the defeats have been by one run and mother was by a shutout. In other vords a hit here or a good ficld- ng play there might have changed he story many times and even with all their troubles, the Browns ire only scvc n games behind. After yesterday's game Sewell was miserable. "The only place close ones count is in horse shoes," he moaned. "But the truth is I haven't seen any ball club in our league that stands out. The Yan kcos don't and it's anybody's pennant. If we get a few hits we'll be up there. If we don't get a few hits I'll go nuts." The Browns made only four safe ties off big Ernie Bonham ycstcr day, but one was a homer by George McQuinn. The Yankees made just .six hits off Muncricf although Joe McCarthy shook u\ his baiting order. Detroit scored seven runs in big eighth inning of a night gnm at Washington to subdue the Sen ators 8-2 and the result of this was to expand the Yankees' margin over second place to a full game, but to hold their distance over Ihe third place Tigers to a bare game and a half. The Philadelphia Athletics overpowered Cleveland 10-4 with an 18- hit offensive while Rookie Don Hies materialize was a matter ol pure conjecture. John L. Lewis, head of the United Mine Workers, who takes the position he never ordered the walkout, could s>end (he men back, but after a long meeting yesterday he counsel. The men held his own quit Monday midnight when their contract ex pircd, the union says. That the "no contract, no work" attitude still existed in the face of the president's flat command — a 222-word blunt statement — was evidenced in several coal - producing areas. Only two of 50 miners in the Pittsburgh section interviewed by the Associated Press. indicated they would go back without orders from Lewis. One local president belligerently warned that any men brought in to work the mines "had belter watch out." Hugh White, vice president of the U.M.W. in Illinois asserted: "1 don't believe the older means a thing. The miners are, if anything, more bitter now than lit the movement was In sight. A Kentucky district president, l declining use of his name said he doubted the presidential o|dcf would have much effect by HWf. West Kentucky miners said they had to hear from their district leader before they pick up their tools. Most definitive was the rcaclion of William llargcst, secretly- treasurer of UMW district 5 at Pittsburgh who said "my first guess is that they won't go back to work unless ordered to do so by some arrangement through our policy committee." £ The president backed the war Labor Board's authority to act on the miners' $2 a day wage increase demands. Lewis, declaring Ihe WLB was "prejudiced," has ignored this highest agency ^for handling war-lime disputes. % Mr. Roosevelt specifically said their "war duties" the controversy that when the miners go back to will be taken up "under the juris- | diction of the War Labor Board." He held out some concossioiMfenC I immediate benefit to the nrcn, however, In addition to terms of I the old contract, Mr. Roosevelt conditions approved by Ihe WLB said, '.he men will opcrale under | May 25. These provide for the duccrs to bear cost of cc^ equipment, such as cap lamps, I which saves the miners from scv-| en to 15 cents a day. In addition,! "!ic" (i on pay is increased from $20 to $50. Industry already was "k time of President Roosevelt's last jack-to-work order because ncgo- iation for their new contract have aggcd." West Virginia mine union sources said they believed the •ncn in the Charlesto n area would •efusc to go back merely on the strength of the presidential dic- ,um. An operator spokesman at Huntingdon sided with this view, declaring it looked "exceedingly doubtful" lhat a back-to - work pinch from Ihe thrcc-day-old ccs-l sntinn of mining. A blast furnaccl shut down at Birmingham, Ala. for lack of soft coal. Other sleell men said production would gol down even if mining resumed Mi>n- day because of the fast - varmh-l ing supplies.
