PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVJLLE (ARK.y COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 1042 ...'..., V •• U. S. Offers War Insurance, But Farm Labor Bigger Worry By United Press Ever since the United States entered the war there has been apprehension over the possibilities of bombing raids on this country. Of course, the worry is felt chiefly in the seaboard states which could be attacked by enemy bombers from aircraft carriers either in the Atlantic or the Pacific—or even the Gulf of Mexico. Government officials, however, have not overlooked the possibility that some of the inland cities, such as Pittsburgh, Detroit, or Chicago might be bombed. It's not likely, they say, but it's conceivable. To meet possible losses to American people that might result from such raids, the government- has set up a system of war damage insurance. Under the plan, local fire insurance brokers » • will serve as registration agents for the Federal War Damage Corporation. Persons wishing to apply for insurance against property damage from enemy attacks may get their application, forms at the offices, of local brokers. The policies will be issued for a 12-month period, and the local brokers will get a three and one half per cent commission for premiums they collect.-- .'.'". Farmers may apply for the insurance at--the rate of 10 cents on each 100 dollars valuation of their homes .and ;buildings. .The same rate will apply on their household cluction and potato production. Economic committees representing the two countries got together, in Ottawa and drew up a program for increasing production. It's planned to increase hog production by increasing the average weight of bacon hogs for market and insuring that future prices will be at least as high as current hog prices. The potato program concerns Canada more than it does the United States. The Canadian crop will be increased. Then if the American crop is small, the Canadian crop will be used for table stock. If American production is large, the goods • and the contents of their i Canadian potatoes will be used for other' buildings. The rate of crops growing in the fields is five cents on each 100 dollars valuation on the jcrops. . May Import Mexicans The:., old question of obtaining Mexican' lab or for Pa cif ic C oast farms is out in the open again. A delegation representing California and ^Arizona farmers and fruit growers called on Secretary of Agriculture Claude Wickard to present their problems. _ The leader of the delegation; was Representative Clarence tea of California. He says it's '.estimated that about 60.000 additional workers will be needed this year-in Arizona and California to hVn r ^t;; the .sugar beet crop, pick X ;XJotton» : ;;fruit and vegetables. Secretary 1 Wickard's reaction to this labof;;p£bblem is encouraging. He told _ : the delegation that he would manufacture into starch for lease- lend shipment. We used to get most of our root starch supplies from the East Indies and the Netherlands. But because these imports are sharply reduced now, the United States had offered to buy five million bushels of Canadian potatoes for conversion into starch. American Knows All Horrors Of Gestapo Torture NEW YORK. June 3. (UP) — James W. Bro'.vn of Florence, S C., knows first hand what it's like to be tortured by the Gestapo— and it wasn't pleasant to learn. Brown, who arrived today on the Drottningholm, wa.s the Rumanian roprc.sentntivo of the Y. M. C. A. for 21 years. Tho Germans insisted that he know about the workings of the British secret service. Arrested when Rumania declared war on the United States, Brown said the Gestapo grilled him for three hours. Then they took him in a torture chamber, hunt; him up by his wrists and beat him with a rubber club. Here's how Brown described it: "I hung there for about 45 min- ute.s. -They didn't sum for questions, but the mnn with the club stopped at intervals, to rest. I didn't faint, but I was ^ood and sore when he stopped. He hit me mostly on the back and hips." When he was taken down, Brown saici the same- man who had been Dealing him twisted, his wrists and pried his tocnalls loose with a sharp instrument. Tin's kept up for more than i hire hours before Brown was taken back to his cell. His release finally was arranged by Rumanian Marshal Antonescu on Christmas Eve. Kc returned to the United Status today with other Americans. Healthy Bio><fes Help Make Healthy Minds—That's Reason For Wilson School Dental Clinic included Charles H.

Volumes Explain Nazi Evil Roots Most of us know all we care to about the ovils of Nax.iism—the Beatings of "inferior peoples" by Fuehrer-chosen representatives of the "master race-," horrors of the concentration camp, and the complete disregard for what all persons above .the level of an insane hcucihuntcr considered the civilized way of life. Most of us however, know too little about the sores on society from which fester such reversals to barbarism. Two worthy books which explain this unpleasant- phenomenon arc Franz Neumann's "Behemoth" 'Oxford: $4), and "The Roots of National Socialism" (Dutton: $3>, by Rohan D'O Butler. Neumann quotes largely from Nazi sources to prove his points and they arc sharp and not very pretty. After a complete review of Brown Shirt theory and practice of goose-stepping government, business, labor, agriculture, youth, religion and fun, if any, Lear Warns Americans Against Over-Optimism Pictured above is Dr. George Cone of Osccola, as he treats a child at the Wilson School Dental Clinic. This clinic was begun last Spring and is alternately served by Dr. Cone and Dr. Fred Child of Blytheville. U P Correspondent Observed ''Battles" Against Church In Germany NEW YORK. June 3. iUP>-- Germany already is waging war on a second front in Europe—it's ual victory, war on Christianity. But both the Nazi attack and the resistance have gone underground for the duration. United Press Correspondent Jack Fleischer watched that battle while he was in the Reich. He tells how German Christians daily risk being dealt with as saboteurs of the war effort in their resistance to Hiter's paganism. But the main result has been to clean the dead- ,vood out of the church. Fleischer reveals that German churches are crowded. That there has been only a slight decline in church members. But the Nazis attack through the youth. Through their school and outside organizations they are taught to believe in a national church where the sword replaces \ the • cross and Mein Kempf the Bible. At the same time, the church is ignored in public. Press and radio never mention it. And church publications have a hard struggle to get paper. The Nazis blame the paper shortage for that. MEMPHIS, June 3. (UP)—Lieut. Gen. Ben Lear is warning people against over-optimism regarding^ 1 war. The commander of the Second Army says minor successes of air and Commando raids should not be interpreted as major or decisive victories. General Lear predicts that the war will not end until the air, artillery and infantry forces have been engaged. The Second Army commander has just returned from a tour of his forces from South Carolina to northern Michigan. He says there is no appeasement sentiment among his soldiers. According to Lear, soldiers believe the war has bui one solution—complete and fi- chcr swiped their grotesque racial theories from Spongier, Duhring, Wagner and others, while the Prussian tradition of "might makes right" has been too familiar to Germany's neighbors for centuries.

Butler, a well-known student of German history and philosophy, gives the triumph of Prussianism over the gentle German liberalism, art and culture the discredit for spawning Hitlerism.

Equipment of the clinic was made possible by an endowment for the school from the Lee Wilson estate. This was a general endowment, so Trustees C. J. Crane and W. F. Wilson were able to use a part of the fund in furthering thc project. One room of the Wilson school was set aside for the clinic and over $3000 worth of equipment, including X-ray facilities and a complete dental layout, were installed. The clinic was opened during this Spring. Drs. Child and Cone, alternately spent a half day of each week in rendering complete dental service to the pupils of the school. To date, a total of 109 school children have received this free care and treatment. Each dentist spent another half clay of every week in treating children whose parents were able to pay. Thc movement continues without interruption and its .siiccc.s.s has surpassed thr fondest hopes of its originators.

Crewmen say that his laughter brought calmness and good spirits to them—thus probably preventing loss of life. The seamen, say Bobby showed no fear. Either at the time the ship was abandoned or during the 16 hours in a lifeboat before being rescued. Bobby just kept up "idle chatter" with his mother, Mrs. Barbara W. Davis, while awaiting rescue.
