June 30. <UP> — Gov. Homer M. Adkhis 1ms gone on record as being opposed (o nny in- tcrnalloiiiil organization committing America (o another war without sanction of Congress. In an address opening his campaign for tlie U. S. Senate nomination from Arkniisns, lust night, Adkins said lie was in favor of cooperation with our allies In an effort designed to tiring permanent peace. But, lie added, he has one reservation when it comes to our participation In nn international organization to keep peace, and that is that v.'c use our common sense and not make commitments which we cannot carry out. The Arkansas executive also stated that he is In favor of a strong standing army for the United States, a Navy second to none in the world, and an Air Force superior to any. However, Adkins said that lie is against the U. S. being a party to : what lie termed a "world wide i WPA" or a world wide bank, with j t\ tlie United States putting up the ' ^% x major portion of the money. -' He's also opposed to what he refers to as "making Uncle Sam a permanent Santa Claus for the world." Would Feed Needy .".I favor helping with the feed- in;,' of the absolute needy of Europe, but I want them to help U\em- selves," tlie governor said. And added: "Charity begins at home. If we are ever to be a strong Influence, a potent factor in the world's sal- vajlon, we've got to first strengthen our own nation. If we weaken ourselves at home, we will lose our influence and leadership throughout the world." Touching on a proposal that an international agency to educate the children of the various nations of Europe be set up 'after the war, Adkins declared that "until we have a-far greater educational opportunity for the children of Arkansas, and, in fact, the whole South, I am not in favor ot undertaking to edu- ' catc the world at large." Arkansas' chief executive' also warned that meeting our. .war goals <--w:in-farm production is..-thd:uVastiim£' portant responsibility , of farnV'peo- ple, and said that for sometime after hostilities cease "ability to pro' duce" will be a major farm problem. "There should be less detailed direction and authority over farm ..wfrograms from Washington, and i;Jpj,reater direction, authority and responsibility should be vested in state and county, farm committees," Adkins said. Mentions Other Issues Her? are the other issues the Arkansas governor brought up: Amortizing of the national debt over a period of years. Cutting Income tax rates to allow business to expand and stimulate new business. Giving private enterprise and individual initiative an opportunity to function by removing every government regulation and restriction that interferes with such opportunities as soon as possible. Abolishing all unnecessary bureaus and do- Ing away with the emergency bureaus at the end of tlie war. Reducing our national debt, balance our budget and providing for the government to get out of competition with private business. Maintaining of state's rights. Adkins reviewed his record dur- • ing his four years as governor of Arkansas, and reiterated his state—went, that he is not interested in >™hy other race or any other candidate. "I am absolutely running my own race." the governor said. "And regardless of what you may hear from now until election day, you are getting this straight from me." ;Ben Dean, above, Grand Rapids, \ Mich., advertising executive, is ;the new president of Kisvanis i International.

Some members of the committee think election judges and clerks should be given advice on the problem before the first primary. Ten members would tie needed to pell- tion the chairman of the committee to call a meeting. Charles T. Coleman, a Little Rock lawyer, urges that party rules be changed to permit election officials to challenge Negro voters on ground other than color. The Negro voting problem arose when the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that Democratic primary officials in Texas could not bar qualified Negro voters at primary elcc- jUons because of color. Attorney -Mineral Guy E. Williams then ruled that the Supreme Court opinion would apply to Arkansas. N. 0.

For Effort To Avoid Inflation WASHINGTON, June 30. (UP) — Presidcnl. Roosevelt lias signed the bill to extend the OPA for another year, and ho praises Congress for its courage and statesmanship in holding the line despite strong pressure' from outside. However, Mr. Roosevelt fears that one of the changes made in the law may weaken and obstruct the effective enforcement of the anti- inflation program. This is the section which relaxes penalties against non-wilful violators of the, price control law. OPA officials protested against this change on the ground that it would limit the agency's power to penalize large manufacturers for overcharges. /The President notes that the action of Congress in .extending the" OPA makes clear ."that it is the WpV;< not: of.-,a few : government of-i ficials.'TiuTof all pur people thaj the line against inflation should be' held. 1 ',. .

Tlie so-called German "Fatherland Line" bos completely melted away under the violence of the Russian blow.s. And there Is every sign of a German collapse, a collapse bordering on the point of a catastrophic rout. The Immediate point of greatest interest Is Minsk, the ancient capital of White Russia and Its most Important communications center. Rail-lines from Vitebsk. Orsha, Bobruisk, Zhlobln and Mogilev all converge at this focal center. And the lines from Minsk, In turn, lead to Warsaw and Berlin, Stronghold Threatened Today, Soviet troops arc less limn 40 miles on either side of that fortress. Both arms of the powerful pincers arc rapidly forging a band of steel around the city. And from the overall picture of the Soviet attack, it appears that the Russians may reach Minsk before the main body of the retreating and broken Gorman Anny. The best Indication of the Nazi collapse Is the number of prisoners taken by the fast-moving Red armies—some 60,000 In one week, one of the grcatwt tags of the war. Everything about this summer offensive is spoken of In superlatives, the fastest advance, the biggest gains, the largest numbers of German casualties, the biggest concentration of men, ianks nnd guns, the greatest offensive of the war.
