Goebbels' admonition to Nazi critics to keep their objections to themselves was relayed by the Rome radio in a broadcast recorded by the ministry of information. He was quoted as writing in an article in Das Reich: "Silence above all should be observed by our noisy critics. In this world no one is infallible and this applies equally well to the government and chiefs of staff who are just as liable to make mistakes as anyone else." In one o£ several Axis pep talks about the invincibility of continental defenses, a military commentator on the Paris radio told of "an ingenious German method" of setting landing boats ablaze by pouring oil over coastal waters Coal, Clotliitig Milk Next|>n Rationing List Washington, June 18 —(/P)— Coal, milk, clothing, and electricity Dead the list of possible new rationing programs—although perhaps none may ever come to life — officials said today. Speculatin on new programs was heightened by publication of testimony on the Offic eof Price Administration (OPA) buftget, in which funds were asked '.' against the contingency of six more rationing* programs that might;, be necessary during the coming fiscal year starling July 1. Officials who declined to bo quoted asserted positively however neither these nor any other new rationing programs has been ordered or is expected to be ordered. OPA's fund request was described as a normal budgetary precaution. Besides milk, it was understood a few other foods or beverages were considered remote pohsibili- lies. Another possibility was a still controlling institutional Dads May Skip Army Duty Indefinitely Washington, .Tune 18 —f/P)— Don't be surprised if the delay in drafting fathers, now presumably put off until October, is extended again, and — without official announcement — perhaps indefinitely.

Squadrons of planes are ready to take off and munitions plants have been transferred to safety." The Rome radio gave an indication of the destruction being spread through Italian territory by steady Allied bombing. The broadcast said all except 6,000 or 7,000 persons had been evacuated from Cagliari, Sardinian capital, a city with a normal population of nearly 100,000. "Civil service officials who remained in the town are bravely attending to their duties among the ruins," the broadcast said. Dispatches from Ankara, meantime, said the Berlin Boersen-Xei- tung had published a long article assaying Balkan defenses and declaring "German and Italian troops already have occupied all important positions in this new theater of war and have strongly fortified them." Offering no definite assurance invasion can be prevented — and food users separately from the general food ration plan in which they are now included. The above list was described as unofficial, and OPA declined to give even the House Appropriations committee any spceific information, claiming any official statement on a rationing possibility might merely cause hoarding, buying sprees or uneconomical use of a commodity or service, and that the repercussions might be particularly embarrassing it it developed no rationing was necessary. The coal strike and transportation difficulties lie behind the remote possibility of coal and electricity rationing, officials said. If either occurs, it might be on a local rather than national basis. The milk problem is complicated by such things . as lend - lease needs, hhortage of feed for dairy Speaker, unofficial but well - Informed capital news source, is the present prospect for the nation's dads — barring unforeseen and adverse changes in the current war picture. "There are three reasons behind that prediction," said D. C., the mythical'District of Columbia ob- but unquotable sources "and the server who represents authentic first one may hurt the Dads' feelings. They aren't wanted — if their sons and younger brothers can fight instead. "Second reason, of course," he continued, "is that • the planned quotas now are nearly full, and the new crops of 18-year-olds are expected to supply most replacements, aided by the single and childless married men who have occupational or minor physical deferments. "But the third reason is a combination of increased emphasis on aerial warfare and a turning-point trend toward sharpening the pres- sent tlrikjng force rather than continuing to expand it. "In both cases," D. C. summed it up, "the result should be about the same: A lessened military demand for men, and one that will affect even older men who are not fathers." Speaker said the whole question hinged on casualties and the replacement problem, that it concerned the available forces of all United Nations. A major setback on any front would change the pic- lure, he said, but added that otherwise, much drafting may ease off Completion of Oil Pipeline About Aug. 1 Washington, 'June 18 (/P) Completion of the eastward extension of the "big inch" oil pipeline aruond Aug. 1 probably will mean lighter restrictions on Midwestern mortorists without relaxing civilian Use of gasoline in the east. An informed source, declining to be named, said today the midwest Is being spared now because gasoline that would be saved by additional restrictions there could not be moved eastward by the heavily-burdened railraods, but opening of the pipeline section would change the picture. He gave this picture: The 24-inch line now delivers after the first of the year. "Even the replacement problem up to now has been less troublesome than anticipated," D. C. said, asserting North African casualties were' considerably less than had been expected. about 250,000 barrels of crude oi daily into Norris City, 111., from Texas oil fields, but only about half of it can be hauled east by rail to meet military and civilian needs on the seaboard. The rest goes to midweslern refineries at present, but it will be pumped straight through to the coast after the east leg of the big inch opens and deliveries are stepped up to its capacity of 300,1000 barres a day. There will be little chance of offsetting the consequent loss to the midwest, already dependent on the southwest to help feed crude oil to its refineries and further troubled with declining midwestern production, until Sept. 1 or later. Then, the second Texas-to-east coast-pipeline, a 20-inch tube, will be 'completed to Norris City and will pump some 165,000 barrels of oil products daily into the area, of which 45,000 barrels or so will remain for lack of means to transport it all to the east However, an eastward extension of this line is due for completion around Jan. 1, and all 165,000 barrels daily even more during the next three months as the flow is stepped up to a capacity of 235,000 barrels daily — will be pumped eastward, setting the mid - west back again. Meanwhile, the huge and increasing military demand will soak up these additional deliveries without leaving any surplus for civ- Loyalty to Government First Ideal Quoting the biblical passage, "Render unto Caesar those things which are Caesar's, and unto God those things which are God's," John Vesey told the- Rotary club today noon in Hotel Barlow that the effort to trap Jesus'Christ with a clever question only emphasized the vital part that secular government plays in all men's lives. "Loyalty to your government is a lofty ideal that has- come down through the ages from men who seek to live in peace and security," 1 Mr. Vesey said. , "Now I know it is the habit of Americans to belittle their virtues and boast of their vices—that we grumble about rationing and about taxes and say very little about loyalty to our country. "But we who know Americans would, not .have .them any other way. For ours is a nation, of men of strength and character, and of loyalty to government—no matter how much we may grumble about taxes and minor inequalities in the distribution of goods."

Roosevelt is reported planning to tour South America this summer. Although there has been no official annpuncement of the proposed trip, sources which cannot be identified say today details are taking shape. A definite itinerary for ' her good neighbor calls has yet to be determined. The Office of the Coordinator of Inter - American Affairs is known to be working on plans for Mrs. Roosevelt's appearances in Latin America. In recent press conference Mrs. Roosevelt did not deny a suggestion she might be going to Brazil and laughingly asserted, "I don't know how .these rumors get started." For the woman who has traveled thousands of miles within this country as the wife of the president the trip — unless canceled— will be her second abroad since she became mistress of the White House ten years ago. ilian consumption, as attested by recent official reports. that: 1.

Backing up this source's forecast indirectly'was a report yesterday by the Bureau of Mines that gasoline stocks now are "rapidly approaching critical levels" everywhere in the country except the west coast. The informant would make no prediction on the nature or extent of the additional restrictions he said could be expected for the mid- west. liver the knockout blow to the Axis, but all were agreed.no stone would be left unturned to expecite the day of reckoning.

She was walking the floor. "I jest can't sleep, Miss Marthe," she mumbled apologetically. "Well, we'll fix that," I said, with forced cheerfulness. I went into the bathroom and returned with a half glass of water. "What's that?" she asked suspiciously as I reached for the envelope on the bedside table. "Something the doctor left to make you sleep," I said, taking out two of the tablets. Margaret shrank back. "I can't take them. I can't swallow them. They won't go down." "All right, then," I said, soothingly and dropped the two pills into the half-filled glass of water. I shook the glass and tiny bubbles rose to the top of the water. It looked as if it was going to take the medicine a long time to dissolve. A chill dawn wind began to blow the curtains at the open windows. Margaret saw me shiver. "Miss Marthe, you'll catch your death of cold," she said worriedly with a flash of her old self. "Go on back to bed. I'll be all right. 1 "Not unless you get into bed first and promise to take this medicine as soon as the tablets dissolve," I said. She obeyed. I tucked the quil around her, told her to call me i: she didn't go to sleep soon and went out. Kathy's door opened as I closed Margaret's and she stucl her head out. "What's the matter, Gram? : heard you talking." "Margaret's awake," I ex< plained. "I just fixed her som< of that sleeping medicine the doc tor left." There was the click of an elec trie switch and a streak of ligh showed beneath the door of Con ,nie and Walter's room. It looke i as if I'd awakened everybody ir 'the house. I went back to ber itending to get up in a few min- tes to go and see if Margaret had ollowed my orders about taking sedative, but the bed was varm ond comforting and I lipped to sleep before I knew it. * * * 7"ATHY was eating her breakfast when I got down the next morning. She had on an outrage- ius pair of blue denim overalls ind a red plaid lumberman's douse. When she got up and rossed to the bu'ffet for more toast he big wide legs of the pants flapped around her slender ankles. She had on high-heeled pumps. I gasped and asked her if she was going fishing in those silly shoes, and she said, no, that Clint Mattison was bringing her a pair of hip boots to wear. She said they were going to take our boat and go up to the end of the lake and cast for trout in the creek that comes down from the hills She looked very alive and almosi excited and there was a lift to her voice as she chattered. I had a bad moment wondering whether or not to warn her agains Mattison. i was sure my change of mind about investigating Derek Grady's murder had whetted his curiosity. He might try to find out things from Kathy. ; But before I could make up my mind there came a whistle from outside and Kathy hopped up open the door. From my place a the table I saw Mattison, his gooc arm loaded with fly rods, an extra pair of boots, and a kit bag, com' into the hall. He piled his gear on a chair, and Kathy smiled at hin and herded him into the break fast room for a cup of coflee. He apologized for his appear ance as he sat down opposite me He had on a faded shirt and ol trousers tucked into hip boots and he smelled like—a fisherman His broken arm was still in its cast and the empty shirt sleev was pinned to his shoulder.

" 'Ook, I'm goin' ftshin'. I'm oin' fishin'," he chanted with shrill delight. Miss Lake screamed. Her cry brought us to our feet and into the hall. Jack was swinging one of the rods around in the air and the line had come unreeled. We saw the dangling hook flash past Judy's dimpled baby face and bury itself in one of the window drapes. Kathy separated Jack from the fishing stick and Mattison helped the trembling governess free th.e hook. Kathy sat down on the bottom stair step with Jack. "Those are Mr. Mattison's fishing rods," she told him firmly. "You shouldn't have touched them." That meant nothing to Jack. "Can't I go wif 'im?" he begged "Me want to catch fish." Kathy laughed in spite of herself. "Maybe, the next time," she promised. "Sure," Mattison joined in. "Next time I'll bring a fishing pole for you, too." Clara appeared on the landing above. In her hands she carried Margaret's breakfast tray and the dishes on it rattled. The girl was shaking with terror. "I can't wake Margaret up," she gasped. "I think she's dead."

This plant is designed to recover approximately 110 tons per day, when in full operation. This free sulphur is recovered in a liquid form and will flow into open bins where it solidifies, and will be shipped in its solid state by rail. Actual work at the plant began last November. The gasoline absorption plant was designed by the Fluor Corporation Ltd., Los Angeles, Calif., and the desulphuriza- tion plant by the Girdler Corporation, Louisville, Kentucky. The gathering system was constructed by J. C. Moore Construction company of Magnolia. The sulphur recovery plant was designed by the Foster Wheeler Corporation, New York, and will be operated by the Southern Acid & Sulhpur Company of Little Rock.
