Ala. team 9-0 in the scmi-linals of the Eastern Flying Training Command Tournament at Montgomery, Aln., yesterday afternoon. It was the tenth straight victory achieved by the locals and, surprisingly enough, the BAAF team had no trouble in defeating-their .supposedly powerful opponents. Lefty Mel Parnell, southpaw, allowed only three hits during the. nine innings he pitched for Qtythevllle and struck out nine batters as he coasted to victory. "He didn't even work up a sweat," reported Major Gene Ijmgcn, director of training, who saw the game. "He'll be In perfect shape for tonight's championship contest." Parnell's teammates also had a pleasant afternoon.

The nominee told friends that he I reallwd that the success of his program and administration depends largely upon the selection of legislative leaders in both the House- mid the Senate as well as the key jwsltlons in the state house proper. Therefore, Laney said he is going to take his time in making Ihcso selections so as to be sure the best I men are obtained. ; He is scheduled to hold a number I of conferences with legislators and advisors at Little Rock soon to complete plans lor the state convention. But the job situation must wait until | a later date.

The subcommittee, however, wai I said to come to Little Hock to con- I duct hearings on the matter of^al- 1 leged outlandish expenditures in the recent senatorial campaign: The j committee apparently is dropping its | investigation of alleged election I frauds in the state. Senator Green I seemingly has been convinced that I stale officials are the proper ones i to conduct an investigation of the | alleged election frauds.

In his Ictler, Ihc German genera) denounces Ihe Infamous "murder factory" and calls on all soldiers who were under his command to lesllfy iibont what he calls "the unheard of crimes which occurred In the extermination camp." "I have always been an honest, soldier, hnvc participated In two world wars ami Jiave been .seriously wounded," says Mo.ser. "I have no reason to be silent about Hitler's great crimes or to cover them up. I consider It my duty to tell (he whole truth about the exlcnmna- ion camp built by the Nazis near Lublin." Moscr ROCS on to tell how he ook over command at Lublin In ate November. 1D42.

"In Ihe winter of 1943-44," he F.ays. "a great number of people imprisoned In the camp were destroyed and to by great Indignation they Included women and children. The number killed rcachei hundreds of thousands. Some were $hot, some gassed.

"I learned with indignation that prisoners were tortured bcf.irc being killed." Moser's letter continues. "Last spring numberle.s. corps were exhumed and burned li special furnaces to cover up Iracci of crimes committed on Hitler': orders. Gigantic furnaces made o brick and iron ,\vece built. They were crematoria with great 1 capa city.
