PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1942 EPSON Ift WASHINGTON By PETER* EDSON ;:•'. Courier 'tfewi?. ; Vv&t Correspondent Arthur B. Newhall, rubber co- orumstor for the War Production Bcard, reduces the rubber shortage 'lo this simple (explanation: : A cciubat .tank with a steellrack is 20 per cent less efficient than a tank with: a rubber track. If any I'of you would rather have your cciis go to wa^ in tanks that are -enly' SO per cent efficient so that •• vcu can go joy-riding, then maybe i his rubber shortage can be solved. Bui if you want your son to fight in tanks that are 100 per cent ; efficient and better, than the ene- '.• ray's, then you'll have 10 do without the joy-ride. Maybe 'in time the arithmetic ioccks will have to be rewritten, t^ing problems that tie in with rationing, price-fixing and conservation. Here, for instance, is a r-orstinn posed by Leon Henderson's GPA: : Q.—A dress manufacturer during March sold and delivered nine style iiumbc-rs at $14.50 per dozen. Later in March he raised the prices on the three most popular style hum- bars to $15.50, but actually sold and delivered only two of these three numbers at the higher price. What would be his maximum price on tire three numbers raised? 4..—Only the two style numbers actually sold and delivered in Miurch can be sold at $15.50. The •third number raised and the other six jnust be sold at $14.50.

To some production men, it has seemed he has gone through these plants too fast to be effective. As long as things look all right, he does go fast. But when the old masti-r mechanic's eye catches something wrong, there's trouble. In one tank plant inspection, General Knudsen found a lot of aluminum castings that could just as well huve been made of steel. He ordered a change made, by noon. * * " BALLYHOO BUREAU paign or two to get farm workers; What's missing, of course, is a boss for all this to schedule the campaigns, run each of them for two weeks or so, then saw it off, leaving the public with only one goal and a new enthusiasm every couple of weeks.

This was amply demonstrated last month • when thousands of United States Army troops participated in the largest maneuvers ever held on the Isthmus. Observation of Japanese infiltration and jungle tactics in the Philippines, Singapore, Malaya, Burma, and China have taught valuable lessons to military strategists throughout the world. No- j where has the lesson been taken: more to heart than by the officers in command of the Panama Canal Department, where steaming jungles, fetid swamps, and rugged mountains duplicate in many respects the terrain over which the swarmed to win their baLtles, thus far, in the Par East. Attack Without Warning The maneuvers made use of thousands; of men who have spent months in Ihe jungles conditioning themselves and bringing their minds and bodies to the highest peak of efficiency for this type of warfare. The men, hard, tanned, tireless narchers and fighters, know the country thoroughly. They have been trained to creep through apparently impenetrable forests, to nake long forced marches, to at- ;ack .suddenly, without warning, and in general to accomplish the ;eemingly impossible. 'Ihe maneuvers indicated that these jungle-trained American soldiers are capable of meeting a tireless, wily enemy and, using his :-wn tactics, defeat him soundly. The Yellow, or attacking, forces in the maneuvers used infiltration tactics, forced marches, and surprise attacks. When it was over, t the attackers had spent their force without, accomplishing their ob- juclive—destruction of the Panama Canal. Self-Sufficient in Jungle As an illustration of the methods employed by the Yellow forces, it can be cited that they staged a 15-hour march of 26 miles through jungles, over a mountain more than 3,000 feet high, and out onto a plateau. There they attacked a numerically superior Blue, or defending, army. The Yellow force had enough stamina remaining to march an additional 20 miles that night in another sweeping infiltration move- •niunU- Both marches failed in tfieir final objectives and this must be construed as a tribute to the jungle skill of the defending troops who also employed trained jungle fighters. During the months these troops have been trained in this rough country, they have received specialized equipment for the type of work they perform. Specific details may not be revealed, but may be said that once finished with his training, the America! jungle tighter is a self-sustaining mobile, self-sufficient; fighting vho knows both the difficultie ncl disadvantages of his territory BEEF SALT MEAT BRANDED SIDES Lb. 23c Swift's Premium and Armour's Slu BLADE STEAK...II). :j5c BLANK HOAST....HJ. 2Sc LOIN STEAK Ib. -!5c STEW BUTTER EROOKFIELD r'LOVEftHLOOM Lb. 42c BEEF FRESH GROUND Lb. 25c HOME GROWN FULL DRESSED Lb. 31c SHOULDER ROAST Lb. 275c SUGAR CURED JOWLS Lb. 19ic Read Courier News want ads.
