DONOIIDE of Hulled I'tess A compilation of aiiUiurilalivi! oslinuiU'.s slunv.s dial, llic .submarine menace in in fair way of being mastered by autumn. Admiral ,J. Kinjj, chief of naval opcnilions, gives j it six more months al the outside. The Truman committee believes the U-boals will be licked during the last half of tins year or the beginning of liU'l. Sources in London are inclined to agree, providing the American shipbuilding program is carried through on schedule. There is reason to believe thai *-. • the 1942 net loss of one million' tons of United Nations shipping will not be mulched in 1943. We are In the midst of the peak German submarine oflensive right now, yet sinkings have declined in recent weeks. March was a bad month, worse than February, but April, according to present indications, may be considerably better. Shipyards Specil Up American shipyards built slightly more than eight million dead weight tons of nierchant shipping in 1942. In 1943, American shipyards will turn out more than 18 million tons of shipping. The Germans would have to sink almost twice as many Allied ships this year us they did last year even lo keep abreast of new construction. "Of 'course, it-isn't our objective jri'ercly • to build ' more ships .than tlie Germans' can -sink. .The objective Ls-to get the great.and growing flood of ships safely lo; theli destinations and back again, d cririis .Inlact lhc products splllint out of- American war factories;,';> There'is quiet confidence on the part of the Navy and shipbuilders that this objective will be acc6in- plishcd.

The many hundreds of Mississippi County sons who hnve gone to war can well know lhat ;hc folks back home .arc pulling Ihcir dollars where they tcction for merchant ships fallen upon the subchasers, has the destroyer escort, and the corvette. Tlie subchasers are of two types— the 110-foot wooden Vessel and the 180-foot steel craft. But many of. these still arc tied up at docks, awaiting the installation of engines, production of which has been delayed by 'experimentation, drsigii change and diversion of critical parts to other uses. The destroyer escorts arc of two types—one 283 feet long, the other about 300 feet. They arc faster than subchasers, adaptable to mass production, more heavily armed, with a longer range and they arc very seaworthy—in short, the destroyer escort Is n miniature destroyer. Corvettes are considered slightly inferior to the destroyer escort vessel but, they are performing yeoman service for both the lirit- ish and Canadian navies. The United States is building corvettes now. with some modification in design. Veteran naval men, drawing on Allied experience in the World War. fully expect lhat this year's production of subchasers, destroyer escorts and corvettes will go far toward defeating the submarines. . The results of the vast escort! construction program ate expected to be felt hy Fall when these Irim lillle boats begin going to sea in formidable numbers. Valuable I.essous Kor Us The grim and costly first 16 months of this war have taught American naval men some valuable lessons. The fumbling and mistakes thai oflcn characterized that period now are being ironed out. We have succeeded in the main In driving enemy submarines away from the American coast and now are seeking ways of blasting them out of the mid-Atlantic. Land based planes and blimps take a large share of the credit for what has been done so far. When means arc found to put an aerial cover over the 500-mile no- man's-Bap In Ihe mid-Atlantic Use problem will be wcl! on Its way lo solution. Helicopters are being used now lo cover merchant ship convoys, and the Navy seems to be displaying more willingness to listen to other Innovations. Suggestions also have been made that convoys be steered out from the regular shipping lanes and take new courses to Ihcir destinations. H seems that the Germans are fully familiar with the regular shipping lanes and lie In wait along Ihe route \inlil their victims appear. To sum up, the U-boat menace the most good—in War Bonds to Diiy bullets, planes, gnus and all tilings that arc nec«sary lo keep an all out war effort going. "The hundreds of men and women who have helped with this job can take unto themselves a real measure of nridc in knowing lhat [over unloading jobs: ed between the coal miners am operators. However, Lewis, in .• a Idler to the President, left unanswered Hit question wlicthcr he would orclei the 90,000 miners now on .strike, back to work. The letter also dl< not make clear whether Uwi.s would agree to another cxtcusloi in the present contracts, which expire at midnight tonight. lint lhc inference was that ho would if llic operators resumed talks with the miners. I.CWLS emphasised strongly lhat he was against having the War Uibor Board lake over In the dispute. Says Hoard 1'rc-jllrtpcd lie repealed his claim that lhc Hoard has prc-judgcd the case. Tho WLU, he said, could not make a lair decision because it was bound by the Little Steel wage celling formula.' Tlie letter twlnled <ml that mure than $75,001) coal miners arc in the armed services. The miners, he said, have broken production records for the war effort. Lewis, the other national union officers and the president of each UMU district signed the letter. Meanwhile, lhc wilrtcal strikes continued lo spread : in the soft, coal fields despite President Roosevelt's appeal.Tnus far approximately 90,000 of .the 450,001) soil coal millers arc out. There is a strong possibility that If a general strike ' ol folt coal miners develops, 80,000 Pennsylvania anthracite miners also-will walk- out. To' Discuss • Protests , President Hooscyclt also; is ,iry- ing 'toTcnU growling 'AFL' and 'JIO protests against; .the rising cost of living. Mr. Roosevelt plans lo discuss the price situation with his AFL-CIO Labor Advisory Connnit- lee next week. Other disputes aggravated the nation's strike troubles. An unauthorized walkout by 2500 CIO auto workers stopped war production at lhc slccl and aluminum foundries of Hie Ford Motor Company's River Rouge Plant in Detroit. Tlie (l ° .slrike resulted from a protest against company efforts to discipline three employees for allegedly molesting a guard.

Alaskan Rritle Now Living Here Volunteers For WAAC Service A pretty Alaskan girl who married an American soldier is one of lhc newest recruits in the ranks of the WAACs. She is Mrs. Uiwrciicc A. Slabbs, native of Scward, Alaska July Sep. The Osccola Uislrict ^vho claims lhc distinction of being the fir.U of her people to don the smart olive drab uniform of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps. This 21-year-old daughter of the Far North, not only has volunteered to serve her country: she has requested overseas duly. Ol course, she would like lo be sent lo lhc Aleutians where she could be near her husband, Pfc. Lawrence A. Stabbs, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Stabbs of Blylheivllc. bul she doesn't expect such luck. "I M 111 serve gladly wherever they send me," she said, adding lhat she wants lo hiislcn lhc day when shall come and she can again be wilh her husband. Their romance began at the government hospital al Scward where she was employed with the contingent of Arkansas soldiers arrived al Port Raymond. Private Slabbs mcl her soon afterward. It was love at first sight, and Miss Calhyran Mosca became the bride of the Arkansas soldier. Educated In the government school at Inquld, she speaks English as fluently as any American co-ed. She is of Indian descent. Her parents died when she was young and after graduating from high school she became employed in the hospital, the kind of work she \vou WAAC.
