Gen. "Lewis B. Hershey, national director of Selective Service, was »asked many questions toy reporters and by guests at the Junior Chamber of Commerce banquet while in Blytheville Saturday night. Below are given some of the questions asked and his answers pertaining to the drafting of men for active so Slates Army. "How long will it be before a man, between the ages of 30 and U5 years, married, two children, and earninn $3000 annually will be called?" "That man is reasonably safe until 1943.

"This is a matter to be taken up individually. You can join the Army and prove to the government you are good enough to become an officer and they'll train you," he said.

It was smashed by our troops at the beginning of April, before Spring arrived, and curiously it reminded me of a dandy who had changed his clothes for the season too early. But it wasn't dandyism; it was need that drove Adolf Hitler's Spring tanks and divisions into action before Spring came.

"They are not taking the 3A class now but may reclassify men in that group," he said. ff ?.: * "Are men being exempted on an occupational basis?"

In addition to those being sent by Draft Board "A" leaving April 30, made up of Blytheville residents, there will be 74 men from outlying sections of Blytheville, Dell, Manila, Leachville, Luxora, Roseland, Etowah H and Lepanto, who will leave the\ following day. To supplement the list from Board "A", published Monday, these are to go from Board "B": From Blytheville—Rush Knox Austin, Jesse Lyerly, James Thomas Martin, James Adren Hoover, Elmer Ray and Ruil Adrin Ward. From Dell — George Franklin Bishop, Louis Hershell Freeman Eliza Wilson Harder, James Leonard Martin, Isaac Jones, Malcolm Casso Greenway, Mirian King Stamey and Clyde Simmons. From Manila—Arthur Ray Moore, with twigs and branches, and as you drive along and bump up and down, your car behaves like a galloping horse. Big; Battles To Come The thaw has .slowed up military operations for several weeks. Here and there—in Karelia, near Staraya Russia, above the Bryansk front—our troops still attack, but these are only isolated operations. The battles that will come in May arc being preceded by an ominous lull. Meanwhile, the last ice is flowing down the Desna and the Dneiper. The Hclds arc littered with German machines, the porpses of merf and horses, helmets and unexploded shells. The snow has disappeared, revealing a gloomy picture of a war Spring 1 . Never has Spring been talked about so much as this year. Hitler has juggled with this word. He wanted to bolster up the spirit of the German people. And no\\ Spring has arrived. Two armies are preparing for battle. Meanwhile. Hitler is casting fevcrisl glances behind him. What's troubling him?

(UP.) — Japanese forces ure driving ahead, in Panay, rich sugar-producing island of the Philippines, and apparently are preparing to launch a new invasion ugninst the neighboring island of Negros, the War Department said today. "Reports from Negros," a com- nunique said, indicates that the nemy is making an air recon- la usance of that island." If the enemy attacks Negros, vedgcd between Panay and Cebu, t will be the ninth Philippines is- and to feel the power of the nvadcr.

'\Rcpcated enemy attacks i n overwhelming numbers forced our troops to withdraw .from Lam- bunao," the War Department said. Indications that the Japanese were getting- set to attack the presumably light defensive forces on Negros followed reports from Gffn. Douglas MacArthur in Australia that enemy naval units were active in the Visayan group of islands south of Luzon. The Visayans, numbering in the high hundreds ana scattered in. the sea are roughly bounded by Panay, Negros and Cebu on one side and •MJasbnte on the other. The communique supported Mac- lArthur's earlier report that Japanese aerial attacks on Corregidor and the other American fortresses in Manila Bay had diminished in intensity.

Cases From County Before High Court Numerous Mississippi County ca.scs are coming before the State Supreme Court. Phillips Motor Company has asked .the Supreme Court to set aside judgments totaling $7500 awarded in Mississippi County Circuit Court to two administrators of the estate of two persons killed only a few barrels of gasoline for Pierre Laval's and Otto Abetz* trips ibetween Paris and Vichy). The British radio reports that Field -Marshal Gerd Von Runs ted t has migrated from the Ukraine to Paris. Along the way, .Rundstedt must have met German troop trains: Hitler's continuing transfer of divisions from France, Belgium and norway to Russia. Evidently, neither the Royal Air Force, nor articles in the American press nor the wrath of unarmed Frenchmen has affected German strategy. Face-to-face with coming Spring battles, Hitler .wants to in- ruse spirit into his soldiers who have suffered defeats during the Winter. He is circulating rumors that the Germans has "colossal" new armaments. (He's publishing absurd al- lagations about the weakness of the Red Army. Russians Ready, Confident This Isn't the time to talk about our reserves—the fighting this Summer will show. I have visited our reserve regiments, when I saw young, sturdy fighters, well trained and well equipped. Their spirit is magnificent. They', all know that the enemy is ntill very stronug, but they also know that the enemy will be beaten. iLast Summer their talk was aU about Paris, Dunkirk and Crete. Now it's about Kalinin, Kaluga, Mozhaisk and Rostov. The reserves are fired by hatred of the invaders. Today Nazism has become a reality —burned huts, the corpses of children, the grief, of the whole nation. Our industrial plants have worked well this Winter. We don't need to mention the severe difficulties under which they have worked. MJllions of evacuated people have proved themselves heroes. We have I Paris Cafes And Theaters Closed Until Friday; Unrest Spreading LONDON, April 22. (UP) —French patriots have killed a sergeant of the French collaborationist "anti-Bolshevik Legion" in Paris in a new outbreak of terrorism spreading throughout Europe, British sources said today. In retaliation for the killing on Monday night, it was said, German military authorities yesterday closed all cafes and theaters In the entire Paris area until 5 p. in. Friday. Informants reported that Germans imposed a 5 p.m. curfew. The so-called Anti-Bolshevik Legion was formed by associates of Pierre Laval, Vichy's "chief of government,' to fight with the Germans against Russia. Sabotage Increasing British sources reported sabotage was increasing along the French const.

McClurkin, Afflick An< Wunderlich Speak at An nual Smoker Last Nigh Pointing out that the total income tax payments this .year in Arkansas would finance the nation's war effort for only 47 minutes, W. D. McClurkin told members of the Lions Club here last night that Rarade Staged-vjruough Business District Yesterday, Then Fish Fry The largest proup of negro se- lectees yet to leave Blytheville for induction into the Army were given a "going away" party yesterday afternoon when the 20 men participated in a parade, band concert and fish fry sponsored by'the Dud Cason Post, American Legion, which also promoted a similar event for 118 white selectees who Bonds must be made to supplement Chester Catalina was awarded $2500 for the death of Nelson Catalina and Ethel Price $5000 for the death of Vernon Dean Price. Nelson Catalina and Price were killed when their car and a car owned by the motor company collided. Cal Gossett. driver of the Phillips Motor Company car, was also killed. Case of T. H.

Submissions argued orally were: Clint Hancock vs. state; Tommy Phillips vs. state: Clell Lancaster agricultural worker without do- in a wrcck near Osceola Fcb> pendents providing that worker is t raising more essentials to war j maintenance than he is consuming. That difficult question must be decided individually by the local boards," he said. 2 S! * "Can a man in Class 1A later marry and then be eligible for officers' training?" "A man is not eligible if he deliberately married to avoid being drafted but he can enter the regular Army and work up." ho answered. * a * "What arc considered genuine dependents?" "They are those who were dependent upon the man registered before the Selective Service Act went into effect." he said. "Must they live in the house with you . to be genuine dependents?" "No, but the registrant must prove to the local board that he is contributing to their upkeep. This can be done in each community;' he said. If V C -Which age is best?" "Business and the armcd forces want men between 17 and the middle 20's. But there are only a few million of that age. Now we must call others up to the early 30's. We don't want to call indis- pensible men from farms and industry. But we'll have to train others to take their places." he tanks. -We have aircraft. Lcnd-Lcase Equipment Our friends often ask how American fighter planes or British tanks are making out. Let me answer at once. I've seen German bombers brought down by American fighters. I've seen the liberation of Russian villages in which British Matildas (tanks) took. part. But friends should be told only the truth. Our front isn't a mere 100 miles long and along our immcnsc front, British and American tanks arc only isolated episodes. One has only to remember that all 'Europe's plants arc working for Hitler, and he Isn't just a tank, collector. He doesn't hoard them. taxes if America raises the money needed to finance victory. Mr. McClurkin spoke at the annual "smoker" held by the club members and his talk was followed by others by W. J. Wunderlich and C. W. Afflick, also members of the War Bond committee here. Mr. McClurkin told members of the club that every man, woman and child in Mississippi County faces the necessity of sacrificing in order to put as much money as possible into War Bonds and Savings Stamps. The quota for the county's 80.000 inhabitants has been set at over $3,000,000, Mr. Afflick told the group. "I realize this amount will be difficult to raise but it must be done and it will be done," he added. "These War Bonds, after all, ,jre a sound investment bearing interest and if bond sales throughout the nation are large enough it may mean that next year's taxes will not be increased quite as much as we expect." Members of the club, on the motion of Dr. Fred Child, voted unanimously to back the War Bond program with the club members pledging 100 per cent support when the drive opens. This is said to be the first civic group to make such a pledge. Livestock EAST ST. LOUIS. III*., April 22. (UP)—Hogs: 9000—8500 salable.

The parade marched from the Armory west on Ash Street to Fifth and back through the main business section on Main Street and then to the Armory, .where the band played a patriotic concert honoring the negroes. Flags lined the business section and most of the business houses closed at f>:30 o'clock in adhering to the request of sponsors. Many of the Home Guard were used to direct the traffic during the parade, both on Ash and Main streets, with the remaining members marching.
