S. Navy has Jusl xen revealed to a group of Washington corrcsixmdenls visiting a few of the eastern Navy and ship yards at Ihe Invitation of Secretary James V. Forrcslal. Jlow much of this new striking force will be in action In this war is an open question. But the mere fact that the Navy now sees fit to lift the lid on what its research and building programs have been Is evidence that some of the new ships are even now In action against Ihe enemy. And In total impact, effect of these disclosures Is to reveal to the world that any aggressor nation may well think twice before starting any World War III. Begin with battleships: News of the six Iowa-class 45,000 lonncrs has already been announced, .showing them lo be the most formidable ships afloat. Their 880-fool Icngll should be compared to the 750-foot length of the four South Dakota class ships now in service. On the tremendous gun- decks of the lowi class ships are more than 125 antiaircraft guns, topped by 20 five inch guns and nine IG-inch guns ii triple turrets. For observation, tlicsi ships carry three catapull-launcl planes and every known device fo fire control and communication Their crews-more than 2500 officers and men; their cost—more than f'Ar. of in tlsSul Colo: use if Adkins Elusion. nst war.

All uj) anil down the shipyards his tendency of adding armamenl, innor, nrcixiwer anil range Is noteworthy. Every class of weapon has assumed the chnraclcrisllcs of the class that used to be above it. Advances In landing cratt show ;h!s hi marked degree. The new LSM. or Landing Ship, Medium seei al the Federal Yards at ICcarny Is no longer an auxiliary vessel, hut i 200-foot ocean-going ship, capable of carrying light anil medtun tanks and gun mounts, armed with 20-nnn. anti-aircraft suns lo fight Its way rislil up to llic beach. Bigger than Ihcse and for later waves of nn Invasion arc Ihe new AKA ships—-Attack Cargo Auxiliaries—that can bring In heavy tanks and a complete little expeditionary force of their own. And for transport of troops by the thousand there are thc new AP ships, Auxiliary Personnel vessels like Ihe General M. C. Mciggs seen at Kcarny—a luxury transport with nn X-ray equipped operating room and a mechanical cow lo provide fresh milk to drink and for Ice cream for Iho troops sailing to war In slyle.

CRUISER NOW A "BATTLESHH" 1 More dramatic, perhaps, ne, cx- Ihan. "Why," said Hancs, "we'd just Ret on Hie stump and tell the folks that we forced the governor to do it," Tiie Arkansas Public Expenditures Council, born two years ago this month, issued its annual report last, week with a scathing charge of extravagance in state administration. The report, from the pen of Executive Director Steve Stabl, charged that "governmental extravagance' flourishes in the garden of public apathy." The APEC asserted that stale spending increased from more than $18,000.000 in 1934-35 lo $40,000,000 in 1S42-43. Tile council's program for Ihe current fiscal year calls for a number of economy projects, including: lliese big batllcwagons is a new class of cruiser, the first of which have been named for the U. S, territories Alaska, Guam, and Hawaii, They arc 27,000-ton ships, 750 feet in length, mount nine 12-Inch guns as main armament, capable of about. 35 knots—faster than most speedboats. These super-cruisers have been designed to knock the spots off any pocket battleship of the Tirpilz class built by Germany. The first built by the New York Shipbuilding Yards, Camden, N. J. Aircraft carrier developments are no less sensational. Under construction at the New York Navy Yard i:. the first of a new type 45,000-ton carrier—largest ship In naval history—intended to carry the Navy new twin-engined planes, larger an., of -longer range than any other carrier-borne aircraft now in service. There is a new 2200-ton super- destroyer that is almost a dream ship, better than many World War I cruisers in firepower and speed. What destroyers were in the last war, what the old four-stackers Navy Shipyard On West Coast Seeks Workmen There will be an officer at the *Iavy Recruiting Office Monday and Tuesday June 12 and 13 to Interview men Interested in working at one of the Navy's West Coast Shipyards.

ANNOUNCING, my xnrulidncy for llic office of ' "Uniicd Slates Senator from Arkansas, 1 am fully " conscious of (lie grave responsibilities of the office. ' as \yc-ll as of the oppovlumly U> eonli-ibulc greatly lo thc welfare of Arkansas ntul the nalion. I regard, lliis office not merely as an honor lo be conferred hy Hie people upon an individual cilizcn. Kullier it is an 'exceedingly difficult job requiring; exceptional training, good character and hard work if it is to bring real benefit lo Arkansas. ENDORSED IN TA COUNTIES '^ 1 was not drafted lo etilcr tins race, Inil I did receive And was greatly influenced Eiy llic requests and prof- •fercd support uf leading men and women from 73 of the stale's 75 counties. Since I ilo nol have behind me an organization based upon political favors, nalitrally •I am relying upon thc hard-working, independent citi- tzens for this support. I have nu olil political debts ind, therefore, if, elecleil, my ubh'xalion would be only to those citizens who earnestly desire Ilinl Arkansas shall be placed in a most favorable lighl before the nation, so that it will allracl its rightful share <if post-war industrial nnd investment capital with attendant opportunities and greater prosperity for llic people of the stale. & ABILITY TO GET THINGS DONE ' I am 30 years old, have been married 12 years and have two children. I am a member of tlic Clnislian Church and Rotary Club, My home is on a farm near Springdalc, Arkansas, where I live when not in Washington, I have had qualifying experience in farming, in business, in cducalion, in law, and in the Congress of the United States. My business experience includes the active management, as president, of llic ,1. II. Phipps Lumber Company, Springfield Wagon Company anil Coca-Cola Bottling- Company; und as secrctary-.lrcnsui cr of Ihe Democrat Publishing Company, all al Fayellcville, Arkansas. This experience perhaps more than many years of office holding has given me an understanding of thc problems of the people of Arkansas. l!ul it is not enough to understand Iheir problems. It is vitally important to be able to do something about Ihcm. My record in Ihc Congress, as well as in business, dcmon- slrates abilily to gel things done. That is what thc people of Arkansas need in the Senator they will send lo Washington. INFLUENTIAL LEADERSHIP NEEDED Members of the Senate arc responsible for looking after Ihe interests of llieir respective slates in thc nalion's capital. At Iho same lime Ihcy represent the nation as a whole. With % Senators representing 48 stales, Arkansas, as well as every olhcr slate, should have and use, for the benefit of thc slalc and thc nation, nn equal proportion of all power and influence of Ihis body. Yd today, as usual, onc-lhird of thc Scnalors furnish Ihe leadership of Ihc Kcnatc. They gain grcal advantage in prcsligc for tlicir states. Arkansas has in' the past been so represented by two strong and able Senators. RASIS FOR LASTING PEACE Soon after I was established in Washington, It became evident lo me llial there was no unity of purpose; and no linsic policy for Iho future upon which we or our frionds could rely. It scorned lo me that sorts understanding as to Uio future relations among the Allies was llic oulslniiding need of this nation,and o( the world . . . for the efficient prosecution of the war- anil as an .essential basis for a peaceful world there- aflcr, , „.. . . -,, . . . .;, AIM OF RESOLUTION We needed n common purpose to unify the powerful, hut divergent, interests of the Allies. It was with this in mind lhal I wrote anil sponsored the Resolution which thc House of Ucprcscnlaiivcs adopted 3GO to 1$ last September 21. Many believe with me-thpt thu itcsolutioji aided in securing, and contributed to the success of, the first groat conference of the Allied lenders at Moscow, Cairo and Teheran. Thc Resolution nml Ihoso conferences havo received unstinted praise throughout this nalion nnd in foreign countries as an important slcp lownrds unity in the prosecution of thfc war and towards a Just and lasting peace, STATE BENEFITS FROM PRESTIGE Whether this praise is-deserved is not for me to aay, Ilul Ihis I rlo know nnd offer for your consideration! H has given me recognition and prestige throughout Ihis nalicr, and especially in Washington, Properly used, Ihis prestige nnd influence can he directed lo Ihe brnefil of domestic affairs in the nalion and, in particular, lo Ilioso of rca\ importance and concern to .the people right here al home in Arkansas. 'FOR THE PEOPLE OF ARKANSAS During Ihe campaign I shall discuss our domestic problems. All of us in Arkansas are deeply inleresled in ci eating a belter stale for ourselves and our children. All of us arc interested in betlcr roads, flood control,' thc problems of agriculture, education, business and industry. Too much power has been conccnlrated In the government. Schools are without teachers, man/i small businesses have been destroyed. Many difficult problems confront us, bul, with unity and determination :md with faith in thc common sense of thc American people, there is every reason lo believe that these can be tolveit. Underlying all, is the absolute necessity fjf complete victory, Ihe return of our boys to their families anil Ihe crcalion of a syslcm to prcvenl our having it alt lo do ovc^r again in 20 years. Lcl me urge you to remember that in Ihe world as il is today, our relations with olbcr nations and the kind of peace we secure, ytill determine nol only whether or nol your children and mine will have lo defend Iheir freedom »ilh their htts, bill il will also determine Ihe price of cotton, Inestock, lumber and .ill the olher commodities and services upoa, which all of us depend for our everyday living.
