Smith, organizer and director of the America First party, might find it difficult to have his name listed as an Independent, candidate for president on the Arkansas ballot in Ihe November election. The former Huey P. Long campaigner has written Secretary of State C. G. Hall asking requirement.'! for his certification on the general election ballot in Arkansas, Hall bus supplied the information, but says he Is' Investigating as to whether he lias authority to refuse certification on the ballot to petitioning nominees of the party. Hall says the Arkansas law holds that an independent candidate for president, to be certified on the Arkansas ballot, mvist present a petition signed by at least 1000 qualified Arkansas voters, nominating 50 qualified electors. In Smith's particular case, Hall says: "Arkansas statutes, prohibiting certification of a candidate of n party or group known to advocate overthrow of the United Stales government or to have been involved in subversive activities, have been upheld by the Supreme Court." Hall refused to certify Earl Browder, Communist presidential nominee, four years ago. His action was upheld by the Arkansas; Supreme Court.

' j Firemen battled the blaze for two hours before it was finally brought under control. All Uock and office fixtures were destroyed by the blaze, believed to have originated In the rear of an ice cream company. . Today's blaze was the second ma- ' jor business district fire In Bates-1 ville In four months. A $100,000 fire swept the large Maxfield building, occupied by four lirziis ' in April. ItV THOMAS M. JOHNSON NKA Military Writer As the United Nations progress from victory to victory, the word goes round that "The wur'll be over In Europe by Labor Day and Ihe boys'll be home for Chvlslmas," hut Ihc truth scons to be that whenever the war ends, It will be many moulds, perhaps well over 12, uc- forc even the hulk of the boys \i<X home from Europe. One authority thinks It will be 18 months. The question is now being studied here. Its students me experts In scvernI government departments, but thelv teachers won't let them talk much, for well they know how strong will be the demand from public and Congress to bring back soldiers, sailors and Marines immediately Ihe war ends. This demand will spring from the stronB- est emotions—emotions which nre Impatient of facts. Yet there are some Ice-cold facts that sland like Icebergs In the path of homeward- bound transports. First, from 300,000 lo 500,000 men will have to remain to share with British. Russians and others In gnr- rlsoning Germany anil other countries. Many thousands will have lo be sent to the Pacific to help clean lip Japan, ' will Include Navy, Air Forces anil Army personnel whose experience is' especially valuable. LACK SHIl'S T() WRING TIIKM BACK SOON Second, we have not now the ships to return in a few months troops It took some three years to dispatch, Our transports tire largely prewar passenger ships of which some have been lost. Instead of building more, we have butll merchant ships and tankers, about 30 000,000 deadweight tons. Some of these actually ferried troops from Britain to Norinnndy bill they cannot ferry them to Boston, New York or Norfolk until they are altered for ocean transport work. .They must have far greater facilities than they now possess Cor sleeping, cooking, etc. The Joint Chiefs of Staff have ,orderc(l more built and the Wni- Shipping Administration is prodm;- ine Diem, but the greater our victories in the Pacific, the greater the I need for supply ships to press them home. Also tankers to meet the Air Forces' constantly increasing demands for high octane gasoline. Third, demands on tonnage', are Increasing; and for more- reasons than one. The 150,000 French people of n section of rich Normandy will need this month 100 tons of British and American food' which must be shipped. This Is the tiniest beginning. All France may need 300,000 tons besides fodder for ent- ile and many other supplies to help rebuild. And that is only Prance. The other devastated countries will need lo Iw led, so will Germany's women and children, for humanitarian reasons. Yet what will American mothers say if their sons are held abroad so that German babies ciin gel, milk? For n.o one has yet devised a means ot making a ship a cargo vessel going over and a transport coming tack. JUST HOPE *'OK A MIRACr.K Maybe someone will. The problem Is now being studied, and may be solved—perhaps by taking over (lie Merchant Marine of the Axis from stem to stem. Then Die G'. I.'s may come home from Europe in German ships or Italian or even Japanese. Dill on the present showing most of the boys will get home very soon after war ends in Europe only by some hitherto unrevealed trick of Yankee Ingenuity. Even were suf- ficient transport* ready, It takes lime to reverse u system of camps railroads and ports In Europe Urn have been built up lo push Iroop and supplies in one direction so Mm It- will push (hem In Die other ii anything like the desired volume.
