BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOLUME XXXIX Blytheville Daily News BIytheviiie Courier Blytheville Herald Mississippi Valley Leader BLYTHEVILLB, ARKANSAS, MONDAY, JUNE ], 1942 SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS bKITISH T CATCH RAF Bombs Leave Cologne in Flames Arnold Promises That U.S. Airmen Will Soon Join The Battle I By United Press The great German industrial city of Cologne .still is burning today —-symbol of the fate in store for Nazi Germany. RAF pilots, checking up on the mightiest air attack ever made, could not iee the devastation because of the heavy pall of smoke. But, beneath the dense smoke they knew that much of Cologne 3/360 lay in ruins—shattered by toils of bombs. The German radio admits that the center of Cologne is devastated. And the British say it's just a sample of what Germany can ex pect this Summer. American air chief. Lieut. Gen. Arnold, promises that American air strength soon will join the battle. Arnold foresees an air offensive which the enemy can not meet, defeat or survive—one battering Germany until Hitler's military power is broken. Nazis in Weak Reply In the face of Britain's record- breaking assault on Germany with 15CO planes, the Nazis have made a weak reply in a reprisal attack on the cathedral city of Canterbury. Many old buildings—buildings which for centuries have figured in English history — were wrecked by bombs or gutted by fire. But British officials do not re-,• .• veal w!>etner-:,thc jnagnLSlcent Canterbury" Cathedral — almost eight centuries old—was damaged. Tills undoubtedly was one of the Nazis main objectives, the British say and hence they feel it would give the enemy important informatio? to disclose whether they damaged it or not. Allied air leaders now foresee the day when an average of one- thousand plane.s will bomb Germany every night. This would involve sending as many as 5.00C planes on some nights, because of expected interruptions caused by the weather. Weather Brings Respite In fact, it was the weather alone that spared Germany another heavy blasting last night. For authoritative sources reveal that the RAF had another mighty fleet assembled for an attack, when weather forced a change in plans. The task of putting: an average of 1,000 nlancs into the air every night will be a colossal one. And British newspapers point out that ground crews alone for this force will run to 360.000 to 400.000 men. operating from 120 mammoth airdromes. But British Air Marshal A. T. Harris voices belief that once the thousand a night figure is. reached, the war will be half won. The British press is playing up his statement that, if the Allies could put 1.000 planes a night over Germany this Summer, it would mean the end of the war by this Fall. But American General Arnold makes it plain that the Allies arc not counting on complete victory by bombing alone. Says Arnold: "Past experience has proved time and again that we must have a balanced force of ground, sea anc air commands with the fullest cooperation among all three for victory." Pair Held In Slaying At Steele Robert Nail McNeill, 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. McNeill, city, and an employe at the air base site here, was slain at Steele, Mo., Saturday night after a fight with Willis Ray Cross, 28, who works at the Weaver Coal Company there. At an inquest held by Coroner J. V. Moore of Hayti. after the slaying, a coroner's jury reached a verdict early Sunday morning of "death as the result of a blow on the head and a bullet through the temple and recommend that Parker Hopgood of Steele, and Cross be held in jail without bail and charged with first degree murder." The verdict came after the jury, having decided to continue the inquest until this morning, elected to finish the hearing when important new evidence became available. Cross had already admitted that he "_ shot McNeill after their fight, but Dick Wallace of Steele. introduced sensational note into the case vhen he testified that Hopgood vas previously thought to be hold- ng a police officer at the time, •cached McNeill before Cross did and hit him with an axe as he ay behind a hedge in a yard near he Steeie Cotton gin. Testimony of most of the witnesses at the inquest was both contradictory and confusing. In act, no two witnesses agreed upon •ill points.

(UP) — The Supreme Court nears the end of its 1941-1942 term today—a term which was marked by far reaching decisions on labor rights and social reform. The tribunal was expected to adjourn today until October. But because of a crowded docket of pending cases, another .session was scheduled for next Monday.
