DETROIT, Feb. 10.—The war's absorption of the automobile industry became virtually complete [ today as the last passenger vehicles i , „ ,, rolled off the few remaining car I }° Manufactured, assembly lines. The last passenger units to be assembled were Ford oars, but that was merely a circumstance; Ford with a heavy program of army- ordered passenger vehicles was behind in the war-curtailed production quote and was permitted to continue in production until today to partially catch up. . Turning Out Army Cars The Ford assembly lines, in fact, jhave been turning out just about as= many -army cars as civilian I units. ' Just when the manufacture of passenger cars for civilian use may again be undertaken in problematical. The erstwhile car manufacturers turned armorers are certain only that when such production is possible they will turn again to the 1942 model Ford Tanks To Start Rolling Out In July DETROIT, Feb. 10. (U.PJ—The Ford Motor company will be ready to begin production in July on a 30-ton, all-welded -M-4 tank, it was disclosed today. A Ford spokesman said the company's Highland Park plant had been in process of alteration for a month and that a school to train large numbers of welders and other workmen has been established. The new tank is two tons heavier than M-3 models currently turned out by other plants, and >will embody recommendations of American and British military missions with the mechanized desert battle in Libya. The new tank will carry a 75 MM cannon mounted in an all- welded power turrent capable of revolving in a complete circle. In addition, the vehicle will mount a smaller rifle, anti-aircraft guns and machine guns.

New officers elected were Evelyn Cooper, El Paso, A.W.S. representa tive; Janice Buie, S t a mford, senior representative; Genevieve Decker, Childress, s o p h o m ore representative, and Anna Baker, Amarillo, freshman representative. Texans To Seek War Contracts (By The United Press) AUSTIN, Feb. 10—Members of the executive committee of an organization of Texas small industries prepared today to go to Washington to seek aid from Texas members of Congress in getting war-time contracts. Rep. DeWtit Kinard of Port Arthur, chairman of a legislative committee that called the small business operators together, said that "seven or eight" Texans would take their problem to Washington within two weeks. Patience IE Urged Vigorous criticism cf federal distribution of war time work was heard from business men at yesterday's meeting. Dr. T. O. Walton, president of Texas A. and M. college, advised the critics to be patient, because of the hugeness of the task facing national leaders. Dr. Walton had a gloomy forecast of this nation after the war. "We will never again see the same way of life we have enjoyed so far," he said. "Some business will be liquidated, and some colleges probably will close forever." Mechanical Cotton Picker May Come Into Its Own Because Of Labor Shortage JACKSON, Miss., Feb. 10 (Wide World)— The mechanical cotton picker may come into its own because of the war, despite objections of those who saw unemployment for hundreds of thousands of nimble-fingered farm laborers in its use. , Today the reverse of unemployment is the problem as selective service and industrial opportunities draw deeply on/the south's stock of able-bodied men. Use May Be Widespread Natior •>! Cotton Council members expressed belief chances were better than ever before for widespread use of some device ike the one John and Mack Rust of Memphis brought out several years ago. Oscar Johnston, president of :he council, said a shortage of :>uman choppers and pickers was imminent and would be felt seri- As An Expert Sees It— Behind War News Farm Agents To Hold Meetings First of a series of 12 community educational meeting to acquaint Lubbock county farm families with the needs of Uncle Sam 'or more food for defense and for the Allies, will be held in. Roosevelt school, south of Idalou, at wh'ich the county program will be discussed, C. C. Jobson, county farm agent, said Tuesday night. Thursday night a similar meeting is planned for Cooper school Four will be held next week and four the following week, said Jobson. The meeting is to begin at 8 o'clock. ously at cotton picking time next fall. '•To meet this," he said, "the utmost effort must be made to develop and manufacture mechanical equipment to do the work formerly done by human hands." Men Called Into Service Johnston explained that much of the crop \Vas produced on family farms, each making not more Jhan five bales a year -but employing in the aggregate thousands of men under 30. These were the very men being called into the armed services, he pointed out. "Many thousands more of farm laborers," he added, "will be attracted to the industrial centers by the lure of,higher wages and shorter hours than can be afforded by the producer interest of the raw cotton industry."

Final registration was on Monday, when the spring semester total reached 8,006, compared with 9,600 in 1941. This semester's total includes 516 new students.

With that in mind, the Allied generalissimo. Gen. Wavell, called for a British'stand at Singapore as at Tobruk. Within two days after the first Japanese crossed the Johore strait moat on to Singapore island, however, its main defenses have crumbled and the fate of its garrison is ominously uncertain. The time element is the major factor involved at Singapore at this ytage to what extent the grand strategy worked cut in the R o o sevelt-Churchill conferences counted upon additional weeks or even months to muster reinforcements in the Dutch Indies while Singapore still stood can only be conjectured. It is scarcely possible, however, that the war plan evolved did not rely heavily on a prolonged Japanese delay at Singapore. Parallel Of Germany It was to reach the Dutch islands and their precious oil resources that Japan struck in the Pacific. Her case exactly parallels that of Germany. Both must have oil, snd Japan struck for it in the Pacific "as Hitler struck for it in Russia. With a complete victory soon at Singapore, Japan will be a long stride'closer to that prime oil objective than her Nazi associate. Ker next move is likely to be a mass attack on the Java basUon still guarding Dutch high-test oil sources. tiori by the Dutch of the well destruction orders limits the immediate fruits of Nippinese victory in that respect. Further Confusion There can be little question, however, that the fall of Singapore will mark the beginning in full scale of the battle of Java as the fall of France marked the battle of Britain. Unless Java can be held the United Nation front will be thrown back into Australia and the Pacific islands. Allied contacts between the Pacific and Indian oceans via the straits of the China sea will be ruptured and the China sea become for long a virtual Japanese lake. There is another imponderable political aspect to the impending Singapore disaster. Prime Minister Churchill faced down a Parliament restive with apprehension as to fate of that jewel in the British belt of empire. With Singapore actually lost, h'e may come to the gravest crisis of his war captaincy, further to confuse Allied councils. attend," Jobson said. "This is a program for every one in the family and each of us must play his or her part. Boys and girls can help in raising more food, more chickens, cattle and hogs and the other things we need." Wells Will Speak Miss Clara Pratt, home demonstration agent, has arranged for several women, active in club work, to speak. Several men also will speak, as will Miss Pratt and Jobson. James P. Steele, of Woodrow, is chairman of the board, which. is composed of representatives of farm organizations and all U. S. department of agriculture and state agencies in the county. Miss Pratt said that she expected several speakers to discuss farm gardens and poultry. Virtually all farmers in the county have pledged themselves to have a garden this year. Walter Y. Wells, county AAA administrator, is expected to attend and speak. dencing her having been vacci- • nated.

Upon her return she left the child and the dog in the back yard, which is unfenced. "They were gone three minutes later when she checked up on them," Smith said. "She looked everywhere without any luck." The child made another unauthorized junket three weeks ago, riding his tricycle clear to College and Nineteenth street, the father said. "The dog kept with him that time, too," Smith said. "Two ne- groes found them and got them back to us." So— "That dog is not for sale," Smith said, "but it sure looks like I'll have to build me a fence.'

Stimson of Cornell university said today. In an address prepared for delivery to the Slidsouth Post graduate Medical assembly's opening annual sessions, Dr. Stimson warned that "a definite relationship" has been observed between tonsil and adenoid operations during such an epidemic and "subsequent severe, even fatal cases of the disease."
