IStS rvEAR:— March blew in with enough breeze yesterday that we are hoping ;it will leave like a lamb; particularly since the next day ; AprJi 1 is Easter.. Waiter's icy i fingers have had a firm grip oa > the South Plains this week. Snow, ; sleet and rain Jiave peppered the - streets within the past few days. March, which means the time for income tax payments, is the month for the Red Cross war fund drive. Early indications are that Lubbock will go over the top without any pressure. Farmers of the South Plains ; will be driving on hardsurfaced roads in bringing thei** product* to market, should the state highway commissioners .accede to wishes of county commissioners courts of the area. Delegations from seven South Plains counties appeared in hearings in Austin this week before the commission for designation, maintenance and construction of farm-to-market roads. Lubbock was host this week to three well known war writers and news commentators. Lubbock Junior Welfare league sponsored John~ B.:' Hughes", in a lecture on the liberation oi the Philippines and Lubbock AAUW branch sponsored-" "John Goette and James Young, two INS foremost correspondents, in a debate on our Far Eastern policy. Hugh Rowland was elected editor of the Toreador, campus newspaper at Tech college, and Merrilyn Snider, senior journalism major, also of Lubbock, was: elected editor of La Ventana, yearbook for next year kran election held Wednesday. Lubbock=s handful of night "entertainment" spots have fallen" in line with Washington's midnight edict. As-a matter of fact^ the places had been dos- ound midnight anyway. Matthews, superintendent bfaock schools,; suffered a. injury and his wife, re- bruises when their car ned on the highway near M., shortly after 10 Thursday morning. They Taos hospital. The acci- ccufred"'when, their • car aed and rolled over two or ._ nes. Mr. Matthews, who owns ~at cabin near Tres .Ritas, N, M., had been called to the New Mexico area on business. . Much of our news of service men this 'week-is bad. The casualties come in greater numbers every day. ' William C. Jones, 24-year- fcbbock graduate of U. S. academy, will lose a leg It of front line injuries Feb. 10 in Germany. He f with the paratroops. Jones telephoned his moth- Clyde C. Jones, from a «Pfiiiigin Maine that he is to be lent to a Utah hospital where the imputation will be-performed. Capt Clarence Symes, seriously injured in action with the 90th. division, is now in Bushnell General hospital, Brigham City, Utah, where he underwent an amputation.. He has reported satisfactory progress and said he has hopes of a transfer to a Texas hospital soon. Both Bill and Clarence are former employes of the Avalanche-Journal. Capt. James H. Milam, lorm- *r Lubbock attorney, is in an Tfrtgiiyii hospital recovering from superficial wounds in the right leg and left arm and shoulder. He has written his wile, the former Kathrine Malone of Lubbock, that h» expects to be in the hospital for -at least 60 days. Cmdr. and Mrs. Martin H.

DeMarco, commanding officer of South Plains Army Air field-before it was inactivated, has gone to San Antoni where he will be re-assigned. A CivE Aeronautics board examiner has recommended that an Essair airline be granted CAB authority to operate between Houston and Amariilo. When William Long, president of Essair, was in Lubbock the middle of February, he said the company had hopes of starting service by March 15. This would give Lub- bck its first scheduled airline service. Hop Halsey has been promoted to staff sergeant in the U. S. Marines and is stationed somewhere in the Southwest Pacific. He recently wrote his parents of a reunion attended by a dozen men in various branches of service from the Lubfaock area. Sgt. Halsey is stationed on one of the Marianas islands and is a communications officer in the Marine Air Transport command. Perhaps you have already read that Ed McKeever has signed as coach of Cornell university and will report at Ithaca, N. Y., April 1 and expects to start spring training 15 days later. That's all until next week. Goodbye and good luck. After the American Revolution, Washington — reputed to be one of the richest men in the country— had to borrow 600 pounds for his journey to New York to assume the office of President.

Dixon) PARIS—While the gayer, more frivolous aspects of the big city still have their appeal, most of the GIs on leave in Paris want to see the museums, monuments and spots of historic interest, too. These include, of course, the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Hower, Napoleon's t«-mb and the storied Latin quarter, where they find life is stringent and not at all Bohemian. Drawn facas reflect tightened stomachs as the shivering residents hurry to barren, unheated rooms. Even the amusements there are simple-and inexpensive. " -. . Listen To Record* In the left bank student -center young people throng "audition shops" to listen to favorite records at one or two francs a throw. The shop has an "elite" section where for two francs you can sit down to listen to your choice of several hundred records. Students frequently spend hours listening to entire symphonies. Next to Sgt. Charles Stone, 29, of Albion, HI., in'on.a two-day pass from an Eighth Air force base in England, was a young girl, obviously a music student, who hunched forward attentively before a panel resembling a radio.' Three dials had numbers and a. fourth bore letters. By various combinations she indicated her choices and when the red light flashed, she grabbed the earphones, straining to hear every note. Stone peeked over her shoulder and saw by the directory she was playing a series of instrumental solos. Different To London "Paris sure is different from. London," he commented. T/4 John R. Dehner, 22, of Cleveland, and. Vincent Hart, 22, of Cleveland, had worked side by side in a factory in peacetime, but hadn't 'seen each other since their induction. In Paris on leave they met in the Allied Forces club. "This is a taste of home—paved streets, motor cars, shops," said Dehner as they marveled at the expanse of the vista up the Champs Elysees toward the Arc de Triom- phe. They said Paris was one place they would like to see in peacetime. NEW NAZI APPEAL LONDON, March 2. (ff) — Alarmed at Allied west point advances • a Berlin radio commentator called upon Germans today to carry out a scorched earth pol-' icy and to fight with holy rage "town by town, house by house, ruin by ruin." Curfew Involves Restaurants Too AUSTIN, March 2. (ft — There will be no exceptions for Texas restaurants to the original curfew order of War Mobilizer James Byrnes, C. E. Belk, state director fpr the War Manpower commission, announced today. The WMC enforces tha Byrnes directive. Belk said only those restaurants which have customarily remained open all night would not be affected. Past Custom To Rule Restaurants customarily remaining open after midnight but not until 8 a. m. must now clos2 at 12 midnight. He stated further that restaurants operated by business concerns for their own employees after 12 o'clock but not all night would also be required to close. Company and club sponsored entertainment projects, dances, bridge parties and other forms of organized entertainment, whether conducted on the firm's own premises or not, will also be required to cease activities at midnight, Belk said. Some restaurant owners and operators in the state interpreted the regulation to mean that if entertainment features such as juke boxes and orchestras, were shut off at 12:00 they would be permitted to remain open for the purpose of serving food after that hour. Belk said this was not ihs case, and that the only exceptions provided are for restaurants customarily staying open all night, and for • entertainment supplied for military personnel especially in ports of embarkation which is sponsored by responsible agancies, conducted on a non-profit basis, after approval of military authorities, and in camps and stations.
