Lltllc Rock had Its hottest July 18 in history when the temperature rose to a 105. Previous record for July 18 was set in 1836, when the weatherman reported an official 104. The all-time high is 110, recorded August 10, 1936. Hottest spot in the state • Conway, with an unofficial 103 high. Texarkana tied Little Rock for second place honors with a 105, while Brinkley and Monticello reported 104 maxlmums. Blythevllle had a "cool" 98 top. And what's more, the weatherman says that temperatures will continue three to eight degrees above normal through Saturday. He says scattered showers during the afternoon may produce a cooler daytime temperature In the latter half of the period. Besides the sizzling temperatures, Arkansas hasn't had any rain to speak of In at least two weeks. Little Rock hasn't seen rain for 35 days—thus selling another record. Longest previous period was 33 days In 1930-the year of the nation-wide drouth. Nazi Generals Become Gloomy Three Arrested For Criticizing Hitler, Soviet Sources Say MOSCOW, July 19 (OP) — Ex- hmples of German defeatism have been reported on the eastern front. A Russian broadcast says three German generals leading units on the Soviet front have been arrested for "voicing their opinion against continuation of the war." Further emphasizing German defeatism, the Soviet press has printed a letter from the former commander of the 41st German Corps, Lieutenant, General Hoffmelsler, blaming Hitler's strategy for the Nazi defeat In Russia. And that defeat is growing by the hour. -In their latest offensive Ihe Soviets have outflanked the fortress citv of Lwow in lower Poland. And now they're preparing to smash across llie Bug river Into Germany's puppet state of Poland In an offensive aimed squarely at Germany. As a matter of fact, the Ucrll radio says the Russians have forced the Bug river 37 miles nortti of Lwow. This area where apparently is in the river forms boundary line between the part o! Poland taken by Germany In 1939 and the part taken by Russia. Thus, the Russians may already be in the Nazi puppet slate—outside of the part of Poland claimed b; Russia. The Germans also admit further retreats on the Latvian front to he north. "Disengaging movements" Berlin calls It. Adml. Orln G.

Actually, loday's twin victories arc part of a greater victory. General Alexander Is well on his way to- word fulfilling his May lltli pledge "to destroy Ihe German armies In Italy." The Italian campaign is lying down about 28 German divisions, .many so depleted that they exist In name only. A British commentator, firlg. Gen. Horace Sewell. estimates that the Germans have lost half Ihc strength with which they started the retreat from the Adolf Hitler Lino south of Rome. Their stubborn rear guard actions, although delaying the Allied advance, has cost them dearly. Many Nazi battalions, formerly numbering up to 800 fighting men, now have dwindled to 200. And most of those arc short of arms nnd equipment. Every German soldier killed or captured while defending Italy Is one less German who will defend Germany.
