KKT" THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 1943 "we are joint to strike--and strike hard--in Europe." * * # "I can not tell you," he said ."whether we arc going to hit them ,Jn Norway, or through the low "countries, or in France, or through . Sardinia, or Sicily, or through the Balkans, or through Holland-- or at several points simultaneously. -v "But I can tell you that no mat- .ter where and when we strike by land, we and the 'British and the Russians will hit them from the air heavily and relentlessly. Day ;in and day out we shall heap tons upon tons of explosives on their war factories and utilities and seaports." The eventual outcome of the fighting in the Pacific, the presi- ;'dent said, can be put on a mathematical basis, since it is known .that Japanese strength in ships and planes declines daily and American strength rises. Ho said this would become evident to the 'Japanese people "when we strike at their own home islands, and bomb them constantly from the air." * * * Near (he close of his address to the new co»ffress. Mr. Roosevelt said that all the uuited nations wanted a "decent peace and a durable, peact." He added that our fighting men want not only a lasting peace, but permanent employment for themselves, their families and neighbors when they are mustered .'.' out. ¥ * * ,: The people on the home front, lie said, do not want a post-war ^'America suffering from undernourishment, slums or the dole. The young men and women of ...this country, he said, want assurances "against evils o[ all major economic hazards--assurance that 7"will extend from the cradle to the - grave." He said the government ^ can and must provide this as . surance. · Mr. Roosevelt aave no particulars on any new social security legislation. He said he had been ,'told it was no time to speak ot a better America alter the war and .that it was .a grave error for him .to do so. "I dissent," he declared flatly. * ¥ * "If the security of the individual citizen, or the family, should become a subject of national de-, bate, the country knows where Island." ¥ * * .'_ He said he trusted that providing freedom from want would not .be regarded as an issue during the ; coming two years ot the 78th congress, but as a task for all to study sympathetically. · ' Mr. Roosevelt said he could re' .port with genuine pride on the strides of war production in 1942. 'And, while achieving a miracle of .production, he said, we have in- 'creased our armed forces from a little over 2,000,000 to 7,000,000. · On production, lie cited specific figures. Last month, he said, 5,500 military planes rolled out of American factories and the rate is ris- ·· ing'rapidly. But he conceded that vthe 1B42 plane output and tank production fell numerically short ,of the goals set a year ago. His goal last January was 60,000 -planes and 45,000 tanks for last . year. Actual production of planes was 48,000, but he emphasized that "bigger planes with more striking power were .being built now. Tank production schedules were 'revised because of battle experience, the president said, and a 'portion converted to the output of ;new, deadly field weapons, especially seir-propelled artillery. 'Last year, he said. America's fac- 'tories turned out 56.000 combat ..vehicles, including this artillery -'and tanks. * * * The 1942 output of machine ffuns, he said, was 670.000, six times greater than in 1941, and three times the figure for the whole year and a half of our participation in the first World war. * * * · In anti-tank guns, the 21,000 "units turned out last year were six Help Kidneys If Back Aches Do you feel older than you are or suffer from Otttlnt Dp Nlehts.B^cr,TM. £ rr "u" ness.

The 1942 production ot small arms ammunition, the president said, was 10,250,000,000 rounds, five times the total for the year before. In artillery ammunition, he continued, production was stopped up twelve times over 1941 and aggregated 181,000,000 rounds. "The arsenal of democracy is making good," he said in summary. ''These facts and figures will give no aid and comfort to the enemy. On the contrary, 1 can imagine they will give him considerable discomfort. I suspect^ Hitler and Tojo will find it difficult to explain to the German and Japanese people just why it is 'that 'decadent, inefficient democracy' can produce such phenomenal quantities of weapons and munitions--and fighting men." * * !f Mr. Roosevelt conceded mistakes had been made and that there had been too many complicated forms and questionnaires. The latter, he said, represented an honest and sincere attempt to see to it (hat supplies of food and other essential civilian goods were distributed on a fair and just basis and that livingf costs were held at a stable level. : Our experience," he continued, 'will enable us during the corn- ins year to improve the necessary mechanisms of war-time economic controls and to simplify administrative procedures. But we do not intend to leave things'so lax that loopholes will be left for cheaters, for chiselers, or for manipulators of the black market." Civilians, he said, will feel increasingly the sharp pinch of total war. but he said there were few Americans who placed appetite above patriotism. "The overwhelming majority realize." Mr. Roosevelt asserted, "that the food we send abroad is for essential military , purposes, for our own and allied fighting forces, and for necessary help in areas that we occupy. "We Americans intend to do this great job together. In our common labors we must build and fortify the very foundation of national unity--confidence in one another." * * * We take off our hats, he said, to those responsible for production records, to farmers, facing a task of feeding much of the world, to those in private life and in government who have endured rationing and other stringencies with good humor and good will. The president said it was o£ little account to talk of essential human needs and security if we run the risk or another world war in ten or twenty or fifty years. He said he. shuddered to think what would happen to humanity if the conflict ended in "an inconclusive peace." "Undoubtedly a few Americans, even now," he said, "think that this nation can end this war comfortably and then climb back into an American hole and pull the iiole in after them. "But we have learned that we can never dig a hole so deep that t would be safe against predatory inimals. We have also learned hat if we do not pull the fangs of the predatory animals of. this vorld, they will multiply and jroiv in strength--and they will be at our throats once more in a hort generation." K m Jit Germany, Italy and Japan, he said, must be disarmed and kept disarmed, and must abandon a philosophy which has brought suffering to the world. If they remain armed, he said, or are permitted to rearm, inevitably they will embark aRain on a career of world conquest * * * The united nations can and must remain united for the maintenance )f peace, the president asserted, Jy preventing any attempt ol the axis triumvirate to rearm. "The issue of this war." Mr. Roosevelt said, "is the basic issue Jetwcen those who believe in nankinri and those who do not he ancient issue between those vho put their faith in the people ind those who put their faith in lictators nnd tyrants. There have ilways been those who did not clicve in. the people, who at- cmptcd to block their forward novement across history, to force hem back to servility and suffering and silence. "The people have now gathered their strength. They are movin" forward in their might and power --and no force, no combination of forces, no trickery, deceit or violence, can stop them now. They see before them the hope of the BOB BURNS AND EVERY THURSDAY EVENING · Yes, folks', the Arkansas Traveler moves to a new station and time tonight. Don't forget to tune in! S P O N S O R E D BY L I F E B U O Y MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE world--a decent, secure, peaceful Hie for all men everywhere." In his war .review, the commander in chief praised the great qualities of our .fighting men and called their spirit unconquerable. * * * Behind the baftlm? in Russia, he listed these other events as major ones of 1912: The Japanese advances in (he south Pacific and Indian oceans, Britain's successful defense at the eastern Mediterranean areas, and the America-British e n t r y into North Africa. Also important, he said, were the unending battles of the convoy routes and the gradual assumption of air superiority by the united nations. ¥ * * The British counter a t t a c k through Egypt and Libya he linked with the successful prior defense of the eastern Mcditer- incan area. Our most important victory in the Pacific in 1942, the president said, was the air and naval battle o£f Midway island because it secured communication l i n e s stretching thousands of, miles in every direction. The battles of the Coral sea. New Guinea and the Solomon islands were described as essentially defensive and part of a delaying strategy that characterized their phase of the war. when steady losses were inflicted on the Japanese in planes, naval vessels, transports and cargo ships. * * * On the question of aid to China, Mr. Roosevelt said we are flying in as much lend-lease material as ever rolled along the Burma road. He promised that we shall "get the battle equipment into China to shatter the power of our common enemy,' 1 and prophesied that China would come out of the war with the security, prosperity and dignity which Japan had sought ruthlessly to destroy. * ·¥ * He paid tribute to allied leaders,^ Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin and Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, and spoke a word of welcome to French army and navy forces which joined the united nations forces as a result or the allied occupation o£ North Africa * ADMITS REASON TO PROBE ON BUSINESS QUIZZES Business men of the nation have some reason to complain about complicated government questionnaires--so says no less authority than President Roosevelt. He told, congress Thursday"We all know that there have been too many complicated forms and questionnaires. 1 know about that, I have had to fill some but myself." Bat, he explained, "the forms and questionnaires represent an honest and sincere attempt by honest and .sincere officials" to obtain information necessary in the effort to keep prices down and supplies distributed fairly He held out hope for relief by saying "we have learned by the mis, takes that have been made." SEElfPEACEON FARM ISSUES Influential Senators Would Avoid Bitterness WASHINGTON, (VP)_A move to reconcile differences between the administration and the farm bloc took shape on Capitol Hill Thursday under the guidance of influen- .ial senators anxious to avoid bitter floor rights over parity and agricultural labor issues Senator Russell, (p.. Ga.). chairman of the appropriations subcommittee on agriculture expressed the view that high rank- ng agricultural and price fixing officials and senators should get .ogether "to view the whole pic- ure to avoid '-piece meal Icgisla- :ion and a constant scries of fights.'' * * V- lie said there would be insistence on the inclusion of labor costs in a new computation of parity. One infucnlial republican se-na- or from a farm state expressed the view that "the farm bloc is in the saddle in this congress and should proceed with caution." "Being a republican. I'd rather lot have my name used in this connection, but I'd like to see every effort made to reach a decision on at least those aspects of the larmers needs as can be agreed upon with the administration," he told reporters. * * * Senator Bankhead (D., Ala.) .said two issues were of paramount importance, that "the farmer's income be increased to enable him lp meet rising living costs and steadily higher farm wages," and second that the exodus of farm labor mto farm and factory "be summarily stopped." "If necessary, farm workers should be brought back from the army to assure the production of loofl and fiber so essential to the war effort." Bankhead declared.

PUBLIC TO GET HART'S RANCH Former Western Star Wants Museum Set Up NEWHALL, cai., w--oia Bill Hart, he o£ the gimlet eyes and blazing six-guns, thinks he owes a lot to the public and he figures to repay some of the debt, although he's in no hurry about it. T h e former western f i l m hero, who used to clean out saloons f u l l of cattle rustlers single - handed while y o u n g s t e r s whooped a n d hollered, disclosed that he HART intends to bequeath his great rambling ranch estate in the hills near here to the public upon his passing. . Hart, now 72, was in a jovial mood as he left a hospital after a seven-weeks slay during which he underwent an eye operation and then suffered an attack of pleurisy. He had lost 28 pounds from his already-lanky frame, but looked pretty fit, notwithstanding. * * * "The bequest is the least I can do," the silent day film star said, "to show my gratitude to the public for the support they eave me during my lour movie career." * * * He hasn't completed the details vet. Maybe the 300 acre $300,000 estate, sometimes called Horseshoe ranch, sometimes Hill of the Winds, will go to the state, or perhaps to some other governmental subdivision. Hart j u s t wants the public to have the benefit of it. .Hart thinks the place would make an ideal museum for relics of the old west. It's practically that now. The former actor has a huge collection of old western firearms, saddles and the like, and everywhere in the sprawling 16 room house are the trophies and mementos of his own active days. * * '* "And I believe I have one of of the largest collections of western art in the country," he said, adding that all furnishings of the estate will be included in the bequest. Hart made his last film, "Tumble Weed," in 1928, and went into retirement from which repeated offers failed to lure him. He always replied he was having too much fun losing $25,000 a year on his ranch.

Any motorist disobeying the order, effective at noon Wednesday, faces cancellation of all or part o£ his gasoline -ration, OPA said. Pending an official definition of pleasure driving, OPA authorities said motoring to church, to a doctor or hospital does not constitute a violation. Price Administrator Leon Henderson said the order is necessary because "there simply isn't enough fuel oil or gasoline to go around." Military and civilian demands, he asserted, are exhausting eastern reserves of petroleum more rapidly than overstrained tank cars, tankers and pipe lines can replenish them. * * * "Failure to act swiftly and boldly," he declared, "could only mean serious threat to war production in the east, a breakdown of vital transportation and tens of thousands of homes utterly without heat." * * * The pleasure driving ban was chosen by Henderson rather than another slash in the value of "A" coupons which are good for only three gallons each in the seaboard area. State, county and local law enforcement agencies were called upon to carry out the,new regulation by reporting violations to local ration boards or local OPA offices. The burden of proving no violation will rest entirely on the driver. Finding of a passenger car at the race track, for example, will be taken as "prima facie evidence that gasoline rations and tires are being dissipated needlesly and illegally," OPA declared. »UR IMENT URGES YOU ^J 1 TO iBUYCOAL JVOWf DIXIE GEM COALJ · U N E X C E U E - ; POR -^ E V E R Y P U R P O S E Fullerton Lumber Co.
