April 22. Four foreign correspondents for the Associated Prsss, who were on the scene when war started in Europe and the Far East, today addressed the annual meeting of their news organization and told, without hindrance of censorship, what they had seen and done. They spok? after hearing Robert McLean. Philadelphia publisher and president of the Associated Press, pay tribute to correspondents in remote corners of the world, manv of whom ere exposed to physical danger. The correspondents who told of their experiences were C. Yates Me-Daniel, who came from Hong Kong; J. C. Stark, chief of bureau in London: Wade Werner, chief of bureau in Copenhagen, and Llovd Lehrbas. who was the A.P. correspondent in Warsaw when that city was captured by the German armv. Werner predicted that "if war In the air comes to Europe in the concentrated form we experienced In Finland, and lasts as much as two years, a great hatred will sweep the civilian population of Eurooe. and it" will not be hatred of the" enemy. It will be hatred of the machinery of the war.' Werner blamed the civilian death toll in air raids in Finland not on deliberate intent of th3 Russians, but on the fact that bombing planes have got so large as no longer to be verv accurate. "Bombers seldom hit their target rllard from Parr One I fin Berlin. Germany renorted that! Namfos and Andalsnes. another western Norway rort. were bomb?d by the German Pir toree and were left in flames.

The progress of the flghtin? m this area, however, was confused by German rTorts that Nan troops had reached Liilenhammer, 25 miles north or Hamar. Swedish anti-aircraft batteries fired warning shots at two Germ in nlanes whWh new over fortified tnands off Goteborg last nl?ht and shot down one ot the craft. Several other planes passed over southern Sweden, which was blacked out durin? the ntTht. and two German nisnes made forced Ixi-dints on Gotland island in the Baltic sea.

Production clothes, such as the "Okies" themselves wore, were used. and. for the first time in the history of Hollywood, candid camera technique was used In photographing a production. Fonda, who plays the part of Tom Joad, and all the other men in the cast, went through the picture with an unromantic growth of stubbly beard on their faces. Jane Dar-well. who plays the part of .

Stark, whos? work has been In London, told of the difficulties with British censorship. For example, he said the admiralty announced at a press conference one day that it needed 10.000 more fishermen to man trawlers. "Our story was held un." Stark ssid. "I srsrued with the censor, explained it was an admiralty announcement, but he said he hadn't been notified so he would have to check. A little liter he said he could j reiee tne story u we cn&ngea n slismtlv. "Instead of saying: The admiralty todav called for 10.000 more fisher men.' we-must say: The admiralty! may possibly reoulre 10.000 more 1 fishermen. By this time thoroughly I exasperated. I suggested he might at j least leave out the 'possibly' as su- j erfluous. But he even refused to do this. I -So I told him to let the story j co with his revision. Later he called. ! full of apology, to say he had been ! in error: that the admiralty really j had issued an appeal." j McDaniel said that while hostili-j ties in Europe had taken the news rootlight from the Orient, the war In the Far East "hasn't really begun yet." "The opposing leaders and their mam forces have for some time kept well away from each other, or have cone far into remote regions with unspellsbl? and unpronounceable j names." re said. "But that does not mean that nothing is happening out there. "Much less does it mean that bigger stories are not going to brak tn the future. Japan atill has a mil lion or more men on the Asian mainland who are quite capable of doinar a lot of damage. "China has several million soldiers and more armament than she started the war with.

LATE FLASHES Wtl " A CTTTT n'TTTTVP-'U L'O T T DARING TRIAL Experimental 'Cyclops Now at Rialto Paramount' daring experiment of casting eight players scarcely known to the public in one of the year's costliest productions can be judged now that the super-fantasy "Dr. Cyclops." is showing at the Rilto theater! The weird story and epoch-making situations required talents which even some of Hollywood's most famous luminaries did not possess, and so the daring director of the film. Ernest Schoeasack. decided to choose his cast for acting prowess alone, with no regard for names or reputation! His players all of them selected after months of testing, are Albert Dekker. Janice Logan. Thomas colev. Charles Hal-ton. Victor Kilian. Frank Yaconelli, Bill Wilkerson and Allen Fox. The story, a fantastic thriller about crazed doctor who reduces humsn beings into creatures one-fifth their normal size, presented some cf the most nerve-wracking problems in film history.

This amount of diversion was permitted by a supreme court decree issued in 1936. In 1339. the chief Justice said. Colorado diverted more than the 39.750 acre feet allowed. The court noted that separate Colorado briefs had been filed, on bv Governor Ralph L. Carr and the other bv Attorney General Byron G. Rogers, but did not determine which had authority to represent the state. Two returns have been filed on behalf of Colorado," the chi;f justice said, "one bv the governor of the state setting forth his executive order directing the withdrawal of the and apDOinting special counsel to represent the state, and another return by the attorney general who challenges the authority of the governor to supersede him. "In the view we take of the material matters Dresented. we find no such differences between the two returns as to require us to determine the question of authority." PENDING DEV. FOR PROPERTY BEFORE MEETING OF BOARD Purchase of two lots across the street south of Natrona County high school' will be the major piece of business before the school board Monday nteht. About $12,000 Is Involved 'In the prooosed purchase. The addition to the grounds will greatly enhance the collegiate gothic architecture of the school building after four houses are removed and apnroprlate landscaping created. It was understood there was about $1,000 difference between offers the school board had made for the properties, and what the owners demanded for their holdings. Whether the difference is within the reach of the board will be discussed at Monday night's meeting. One of the houses to be removed Is that occupied by Supf. Dean C Morgan, directly south of the main entrance, which is already owned by the school district. If and after the. prooerties are acquired, the board would sell the houses to the highest bidders to be removed to other locations.

Can troops be landed if the enemy has temporary and local air superiority? So far, he said, the answer tn the second question has been satisfactory from the British viewpoint. . Praising the fighting of the Norwegians and emphasizing that Britain, France and Norway all have troops in the field against Germany now, he declared that the Germans might not have reached Olso had it not been for "forged orders" and the fact that the Norwegians were caught before their army was mobilized. This source said there had been practically no losses" so far in the British landings in Norway but that "we can't expect that happy state to ontinue forever." Be said British contacta with the No;wegians had shown them to be grettly lacking in equipment. Indication that the Germans expected no resistance in Norway, he said, wa. seen in their attempts to lard parachute soldiers and their dispatch of a small force all the way to Narvik, on the northern Norwegian coast.

It said a "consideraole f number- of inhabitant. of outh east coast town had shown lights recent!" while nti-aircraft guns were fighting off German raiders. An unofficial British amplication of the raid on the Aalborg airdrome, only 100 air miles from Norway, said thst "a number of enemy aircraft" were destroyed, "numerous fires" started and extensive damase done toe the surface of the airdrome and its buildings. NIGHT FLYING IN PROGRESS The relepse added that the first Britsh raiders found night flying operations in progress at Aalborg.

Ground defense forces were active, searchlights were ranging in wide arcs and anti-iireraft"fire was intense, the report continued, "as the British elr era ft. striking in rapid succession, came In over the target." "One pilot, approaching from a height of .only 100 feet, found that most of the searchlights could net be depressed to so low a level and. rising over the target, was able to rliee an accurate salvo of bombs "n a road neT the airdrome control tower."

Champion, district supervisor. However, the task of filling out farm and ranch schedules will continue another two or three weeks as the enumerators have been hampered by muddy roads. "If it were not for the storm, we would hve finished everything this week," Champion said. He urged all employers in Casper to cooperate by seeing that 'all of their employes are enumerated. If any are not, he advised them to turn in the names to the census office, phone 589. or the chamber of commerce, phone 1940. Professional men were also urged to make the same check. The census count has been completed on Casper mountain. One enumerator strapped on skis and made calls at 92 different cabins located on the mountain. Onlv a very few were inhabited . at . this time of the year, however. The count revealed the largest family, numbering 15 persons, resides at Douglas.
