Military Experts See Future Attacks As Coming From Over Arctic Waste By neWllt Mackenzie I AP Foreign A f f n l r N Analyst , Tt'.« more thnn u bit n l g h t r n u r - ; ish, but our military experts tell UK t h a t If we nre involved In a n - ; other war thp a t t a c k which will cause us the gravest concnrn will come over the frozen top o.f thr- world in the form of flying death --long-ranKe bombers or long- ran i?e guided missiles. This Is one of the hltfhlluhts o f , a statement mncle by Gen, Curt, Sprint?., commnnclmy? general of thf Army Air Forces, to tho Housr Appropriation Committee' durliiR a hcnrlnn on the - 104R m l l i t f i r v supply bill. Spafitz miy.s wars of a m a g n l - , tucle '.o affect the United StaLon adversely must be compounded of two primary elements -- n large population which mny become war- Ilk? and a huge industrial re- . source for the production of weapons. j Three Areas On that basis the Southern Hemisphere mny be dismissed. Thf-ro remuln three possible areas i Theso are Western TCurope. Euwl- crn Eurrvsta and the neighboring Islands of the Wewtorn Pacific, and the land mass of Central i Asia. The general adds: "Trace the groat circle courses, from any of these thvee ureas; mentioned above to the Industrial centers of inn United States und we find that all of those courses thus described pass over or near tho Arctic regions. We can divine, therefore, that If our defenses' are to be between us and the enemy they must be on the Arctic frontier." General Brchon Somcrvell, former commander of the Army Service Force, pins the source of possible danRor down with almost u n c o m f n r t a b l o bluntnoss. Points To ItusHla He told the national Induatrlal Conference board in New York I hat if theru ia war It obviously can come "only from a nation ·aifflclently powerful to expect to win a favorable decision." Then :,'fime thlfl climax: "Ilu.'mlu IK the only country on the Rlobo today which might hope, for victory." All this fits Into the picture presented by President Truman's appeal to congress last Monday to hasten a program of American defense from Capo Horn to the Arctic in vlow of "world development*. 11 Ho n«kod for broad authority to supply aims to Canada and to all Latin American nations, to train the men of tholr iirmles and navies, and to bring their equipment Into »tandardlza- tion with that of the United States. Puts Tooth In Pact This question of standardization of arms is of vital importance, bo- cause in the event of an attack on the Western Hemisphere the United States would-be almost the .solo source of military supplies foi North and Sou Mi America. Failure to standardize would, nullify any possible solidarity of dofens' among the nations of the two Americas, The immediate reaction of mill tary sources In the groat Argon tine to Mr. Truman's program was favorable. These sources bellovoc that standardization of arms and military training would put tooth into any inter-American defense paot that may bo signed, Thlfl signing of a defense pact Is another vital matter which North and South American statesmen generally say has been too long delayed. It was projected in the historic act of f Chapultepee which was concluded In Mexico City over two years ago, It was agreed that there should be a further conference at Rio to Implement tho defense proposals but that still remains to be held Meantime the need of defensive preparation is pressing--and pressing with grim persistence. Legless Legmen And Blind Reporters Operate Largest U. S. Newspaper Chain By DOUGLAS LAKSEN WASHINGTON, (NBA). -- The largest chain of newspapers in tho V, S. U run by the most unique collection or puWtahorB, editors, reportera, copy boy« and printers devils probably over assembled In the hiotory of Journalism. Only about o*" ' -nth of the staff members e\»r had previous newspaper experience. Some of tho "leg men" donit have legs. Some of the reporters can't ace. Some can't hear. The newspapers are the 125 publications printed in Veterans Administration hospitals throughout the country . For most of the papers the city desk is a hospital bed and tho composing room a ward. Everything from borrowed modern presses to beat up mimeograph machines *nd duplicators arc used for printing. Wheel chairs carry the papers for many circulation departments. Typewriters are available, but most of the reporters can't type. Circulation of individual papers y?ry from 10,000 to 85, And, although there are no advertisers and the papers are all free, the publishers claim it is one of the most profitable newspaper ventures In America. The profit Is not in dollars and cents, however. It ia in units of mended minds and morale. Although the papers are sponsored by VA'K Special Services Division, Special Services tries to keep hands off, Patients themselves do 00 per cent of work , The editorial objectives arc twofold: to keep the patients informed of what'u Kolng on in their hospital, and a.: a form of occupation therapy for tho«o who put them out. The Htylo Is ohatty and informal. Here's a sample from "Thoo Hypo" published in a hospital In Phoanlx, 'Arl/,., in which "TP" writCH: "Well, I guess Herring will Htay in bnci now and not Jump out and hobble around tho halls to the washroom. He sure was a sick chick when thoy took his crutches away from him. We all felt sorry, and I guess he took plenty of razzing from the boys." The ri.imefl of the papers arc Just as Informal. "Bronx Cheer," is put out in a hospital in Now York; "Ward. Healer" is published in a vot hospital in Sunmount, N. Y.; "Stofcho-Scoop" in Aspinwall, Pa.; "Bod Post" in Dearborn, Mich,; "Hypo" in Temple, Tox.; "Scars and Qripos" in a vet hospital In Dallas. Doctor/?, Chaplains and nurses also contribute. F. R. Korr Assistant Administrator for Special Services, believes each hospital' newspaper should be its own little "hometown" journal. He says "patients write eagerly for their hospital papers and they read overy word with a tremendous pride of ownership." In several cities prizes have beon offered by townspeople for bcifit stories written by tho veterans In their own paper. Local printing offices print tho papers free in some cities. Most of thorn are weeklies and bimonthly papers. Levee Work Nears Completion Here Levee work on the city reservoir referred to as the "off-channel storage reservoir" is now about 90 per cent complete, Olty Engineer F. L, Rockwell said today. The work is being done by the Ballcnger Construction Company of San Bcnito which submitted the low bid of $9,284.50 at «, olty commission meeting May 6. Work be- Bain on tho project the following clay, Rockwell said, The reservoir will consist of two ponds, "one large and one small" covering an area of about 37 nores. The two ponds will serve a« settling and reservoir for the water before it goes Into the filtertlon plant. They will be fed, from the present concrete canal which is now in use until a new pump can be installed. The old pump will be retained for emergency work, Rockwell said. Pater Catches Up With The Pate Boy* WINNSBORO S, O. ~ (Jp)-~Gene Pate, 15, and his brother, Joel, 15, arc both Eagle Scouts. Their father, Dudley Pate, A section man in the twisting department of winnsboro Mills, wears the Eagle badge too, It was pinned on him recently by his mother, Grandmother Pate is a Spout enthusiast, too, She knows every Boy or Girl Scout in this modern cotton mill community and. attends nil court of honor ceremonies, Papa Pate took over a.« aooutr- master of Troop 27 when the leader went away to war. Soon the girl troop found itself without a leader and and Mrs. Pate pitched In as scout mistress. Mrs. Pate Is a spinner in the mill.
