(UP) —Britain today called upon its young airmen, credited with having saved it from invasion in September, to patrol the Atlantic sea lanes and save it from the threat •of starvation at the hands of U-boats, surface raiders and ocean-flying bombing planes. Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced yesterday that the admiralty was overtaking operational policy of the coastal command of the Royal Air Force because it was necessary to use bombing and reconnaissance planes tp guard merchant ships and convoys. This was interpreted as Britain's 1940 answer to the submarine and raider menace. The convoy system was the answer in 1917. Churchill announced a week ago that he personally was tackling the problem of dissipating the new threat to Britain's life. Hence it was believed that toe recent fierce Royal Air Force attacks on submarine bases and the STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Dec. 11. (UP)—Travelers reported today growing sighs of organized, secret opposition in Norway to German domination. Nazi secret police, it was said, were making many raids, especially in large cities, in an effort to stamp out opposition groups. The oppositions!ts were said to be meeting in private homes and operating with the greatest secrecy. Much of their activity was being directed against members of the Nazi established government of Maj. Vidkun Quisling, the Norse Nazi, and property owned by them. One of Quisling's lieutenants, an internationally famous skaling expert, was found dead im'der mysterious circumstances recently and other leaders of his movement were reported to have disappeared.

Driver of Osceola, former congressman, continues to figure substantially in speculation here over the possible successor to Senator John E. Miller, who is slated for 'appointment to a federal court vacancy in January. Retention of Amendment 29 at the recent general election has sharply narrowed the field of potential appointees. The" amendment prevents an appointee from running to succeed himself. Rumors are also current here that Clifton H.

Tl.—An assault by a negro upon a gray-haired woman here Tuesday resulted in Mrs. Minnie Moody of New Madrid, 65, ' being seriously wounded and a group of men attempting to storm the jail here last night after it was rumored that her assailant had been apprehended.

Officers are continuing their search but have yet found no clue, it was announced today by Sheriff Tom Hosier, despite the rumors which caused last night's disturbance. / The crowd first formed in; the business section and' marched to the c city jail where Police Chief Albert Walker told the men that the negro was not there.

Brooks has been made chairman of the Goodfellows Club arid he has already named Mrs. G. R. Carter to assist him .in investigation of needy families and R. E. Blaylock as one of his general assistants. Other committee members will be named this week. The Goodfeilows Club has the sum of $650 provided by local citizens through the annual Community Fund but if any one wants to make a special Christmas donation for the poor of Blytheville. it will be gladly received, put to a good use by providing joy to some poor little girl or boy and names of all donors will be acknowledged in the Courier News. Money may be sent to Mr. Brooks, or Courier News. Last year, when the Community Fund was inaugurated no effort 1025 was made to have special Christmas gifts given, because of the money on hand, and so the Good- fellows Club lost a little of Its "personal touch", it was pointed ChlCaf/0 Corn As one man said: "I think it Is ope'ri^ high low close "nice not to beg for money all the 603-4' 603-4 601-4 60 Ir2 time but at Christmas I like to May : 60l-i> 605-8 601-8 60 1-i- give.a little extra to some one less fortunate than myself."

Last year, the $650 from the Community Fund provided baskets for more than 400 families with each receiving goods valued at about $1.50, in addition to a few gifts received. Special gifts, if received this year, will add much to make the baskets "bigger and better," especially where there are children in the home. Families being investigated this year are found to be worthy of help, members of the committee said.
