PAGE EIGHT TOTSDAT, FEBRTTART 4. 19« THE BROWNSVILLE HERALD, BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS The War Today By DEW1TT MACKENZIE · The clash between Herr Hitler »nd Marshal Pctaln, France's aged chief of state, is well worth keeping an eye on since it bids lair to ranK as one of the far-reaching events of the war. The outcome may tip the scales of conflict sharply, and therefore Is of the utmost Importance to both Germany and Britain. Of immediate concern is the fact that the offensive operations which the Fuehrer has in hand are affected. The underlying cause of the duel between these two determined personalities has been the failure of Pctam and his government to "co- I opcrace" with Nazidom after the manner prescribed by the conquerors. Specifically, the Marshal Is snlrt among other things to have refused to turn the French navy over to the Germans, or to grant them the use of naval bases in unoccupied France and the colonies. Colonies Arc Club These asserts, and the French colonial armies which total more than half a million men, arc Pe- taln's ace in the hole for the protection of his shattered country. The possibility that the old marshal, still full of fight, might throw these resources to the support of Britain has kept the Nazis from cracking clown on the Vichy government and taking what they wanted without more' ado.

Petaln has steadfastly refused to piny this role, undoubtedly not for love of England but for honor and, not to put too fine a point on it, for the security of France. For R time Berlin appeared to be rn!\klnct some progress. Vice Premier Laval, who was second In command to Petaln. was keen on cooperation with Germany and hot for turning nsair,;,t the England ho dls- llkrd.

Brrlin Cools Since then there has been a growing coldness on the part of Berlin, and the Nazis have insisted on Laval's reinstatement. This has gone on until recently when war developments have forced the Fuehrer to take energetic measures. The position Is that the Nazi chief Is about to Intensify his offensives against the British Isies. At the same time he Is undertaking operations in the Mediterranean -one for the rescue of Mussolint.

Movie Playship Being Remodeled JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- (IP)-Defense duties soon will claim a luxurious 171-foot yacht on which movie stars once played. The trim vessel, being refitted here a£ a naval auxiliary, was purchased by the navy last December from Dr. John R. Brinkley, Texas gland surgeon, since adjudged bankrupt by a Texas court. Naval officials do not comment on its probable assignment, · but waterfront gossip marks it for patrol service, possibly equipped as a mine-layer. The richly-appointed craft was built in 1928 as Athero 2nd for Jesse Livermore, Wall Street operator who made and lost several fortunes in the stock market. Later It was sold to Eldridge Johnson and renamed the Caroline. The late Douglas Fairbanks, star of silent films, charted it for a cruise around the world with friends, including Lady Ashley, whom Fairbanks later married. Fairbanks persuaded Joseph Schcnck, 'president of Twentieth Century-Fox studios, to purchase the yacht in 1935. It remained in Schelnclc's possession until 1938 when it was purchased by Dr. Brinkley, The yacht is equipped with radio telephone and an air conditioning unit. Its superstructure is of teak and knotty pine. Staterooms are oak paneled. Most of the elaborate fixtures are being removed. The famed yacht has been seen in Valley waters, having been brought here several years ago by Dr. Brinkley. It was viewed by hundreds of Valleyites us it was i docked at Port Isabel. Valleyite Gets Appointment MISSION--Norwood Honey, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Honey, was notified Monday that he had been named as principal for the spring appointment to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis in a letter received from Congressman Milton H. West. The appointment was granted as a result of the competitive examination conducted for youths in the congressional district January 6 at Kingsvillc. According to the "notice from Mr. West, young Honey's grades were highest among the candidates for the naval appointment. There were 24 youths taking the examinations for the two annual appointments to the army (West Point) and naval academies. Richard Rowe, McAllen, received the West Point appointment. Young Honey, who is 20 years old, is a sophomore at Bdinburg Junior college and will graduate from there this spring. He Is a graduate of Mission High school with the class of 1939. Lost Checks Give State Big Profit AUSTIN, Tex.,--(^)--More than $20,000 in cold cash has gone begging for the want of claimants.

But the checks, given in pay- imcnt of transient and other forma cf indigent relief over several years, have never been cashed. Presumably many have been lost.

It is a plea. It is an urgent plea for every one of you to enlist with us in a "drive" we have in mind. This "drive" is for a very great goal--a better America. Now I know that no one of us can do very much alone--any more than one soldier can win a war. But together--and with almost no effort--we can raise the strength of this great democracy of ours to- unbelievable heights. Perhaps I ought to call this proposal of mine a game, for it-can become that. Here is hozu you play it: Start with this copy of your newspaper. Pick out of it one--just one --item of news which you think is important in making America bet- teachers. If you're an orange grower you'll have to resist a cheer if a frost nips half the orange crop, leaving you untouched, with higher . prices for your ozun oranges. .^ Pick out an item about an ad-'f vance in medicine or a story new industry which makes good 'j and needed jobs for a thousand ter, stronger, a finer place to live. Don't pick a selfish thing--something which would benefit you or your town at the expense of some . other person. For example, you'll be tempted, if you're a schoolteacher, to approve news which favors school- men. Or pick a report of a good sermon or a fine, statesmanlike speech by a congressman. Then spread this story. Tell a' neighbor. Simply say to him, "I saw in the paper that so-and-so has done this-or-that."' Sound silly? It isn't at all. Do you realize that the whole nation-the 130 million of us--is merely the product of all the good nnd the bad that we do? And if more of us actively approve the good and unselfish and actively deplore the bad, we'll encourage more goodness nnd discourage the unsound, the evil, the dangerous. t r * After all, the very reason for newspapers existing in America is to bring 3 - ou the record of what is going on. You wouldn't be qualified to take part in governing the district, the state or the nation you live in if you didn't know what was happening or what the news meant to you and your neighbors. Try this crusade with us, will you? It won't be much trouble, but if thirty million good citizens just told oji* good thing o thirty million others every day we'd have a nation so strong and with such a spiritual unity that nothing could break it. * * *' . irs CoTrtwIttoo, com* publiihc* the** mcusaften simultaneous!*' each ^-cck.
