C.--iAP^— "Moriarity's Marauders" are marked men in the Carolina army maneuvers. To this little band, a deft experimental scouting team with n strange combination of bicycles, motorcycles nnd midget cars, has been given official credit for the success of an entire regiment in the simulated war being fought within the First army. The 22. half of them selectees and the others enlisted . icn. were trapped with almost 1.000 riflemen, machine gunners and even artillery moving in on them. But, they held high ground near Ttadesville. N. C., and established radio communication with their regiment. The up-to-the-minute information, -kept flowing from the precarious position, enabled the 13th infantry regiment to break the 44th division's hold on the little town and sweep on to its objective across the Lynches river. The gang has taken its tough name—Moriarity's Marauders—from a soft-spoken Lieut. Veale Morlar- ity, 23. of Jacksonville, Fla. He left the University of Florida for the army. For the Job. Col. Sumner Waite. regimental commander, assigned four midget cars and put on each a bicycle for use when silence and some speed were necessary. It also has three motorcycles and a command car, equipped with two-way radio.

Thia Is In part a story of machines and a atory of planning, for Ja^eph Stalin has revealed to the British Lord Beaverbrook that these "leap frog" factories were built that way. It is. however, even more a story of men— of skilled workera who turned moving men nfter their day's work was done, of engineers who became mechanics after hours, heedless of overtime, The factory Cas- nidy visited uprooted 500 specialised worker*; from Kiev just as it unscrewed the machines, lifted them out of their homes and set them down in what must have teamed a foreiirn country. It would be silly to assume they were particularly happy about this, but the work which Cassidy saw them turning out is it* own tribute to their acceptance of the sacrifice. --------This whole bloody struggle. Stalin told Beaverbrook, if a war of tanks. but. said the British minister, "he also thought that the war would be decided by the tank and airplane in coordination and that when complete coordination of the tank and aircraft had been developed on a common front the war might be settled." He might have added that this | peak of coordination will be achiev- | ed not by the machines but by the j men in the tanks, the men in the , planes, and the men in the factories. , Taylor Confers with Lewis on Mint Reopening John L.

Federol Expert Expects German Oil Reserves To Last Only 5 Months FORT WORTH. TEX—'AP' — Earl Petty, an oil expert in the department in infrior just back from Moscow, says the German oil reserves probably will Inst another five months. "Ten. without new sources. Hitler's situation will become critical very rapidly, indeed " Petty arrived ycsterdny with two other members of the United State.- mlssion to the Moscow conference, on war supplies on the last leg of a round the world .flight in an nrmy bomber. Tlie other mission members are Edward Pace of the state depart-j ment's Russian desk nnd Dr. George K. Strode of the Red Cross. They planned to fly to Washington today. Major A. L. Harvey, commander' of the B-24 bomber, said reports IheJ ship had 30 bullrls holes in its wings as mementoes of its flight over waning nations were false. "That atory broke In Singapore; the fellow who wrote it did not see the «hip or talk to any of the passengers or crew. It was apparently pure imnglnation." The members of HIP mi.vlon nil nralsed the Russian war effort and expressed the opinion Russia would fight as long as supplies could be made available. Dairy Equipment Gets 0PM Priorities Ratings WASHINGTON — CAPV — The office of production management .has granted defense preference ratings to dairy equipment manufacturers in a move to provide necessary equipment for an increase of 8.000,000,000 pounds in next year's milk production. *"• .._The agriculture department pro- po^es production of 125,000,000,000 pound* of milk in 1942. Douglas C. Mnckeachie. director of purchases, said the ratings would go to manufacturers of milk cans and tinned and tinplate dairy equipment. The plan, effective immediately, will expire next Mnrch 15. He said that the high ratings could not be used to build up an inventory. Only enough stfel will be allocated to produce the 955,000 milk cans necessary to handle the increased production plus 385,000 for normal replacement. In the case of tinplate equipment, only enough steel will be allocated to nllow an increase of, 68 per cent in dairy palls, milk strainer pnils, milk kettles, milk strainers nnd setter or cream cans. Officials said this allowance would care for a 68 per cent Increase in milk product ion.
