February 12, 1942 Possibility^fRationing Of ' Pfc 4343 For The Avalanche-Journal Officer Restrictions May (Soldier Who^Detected Approaching Planes Be Necessary (By The United Fie;s) \VASF.1NGTON, Feb. 11 — The posibility of rationing of civilian gasoline and fuel oil supplies again is being taken under consideration by the Office of Price Administration and the petroleum coordinators' of/ice, officials disclosed today. Ko definite details have been worked out and there are no immediate plans for such curtailment. Futuie restrictions, however, may be necessary, it was said. Factors Arc Cited East coast shipping losses and mounting demands for fuel oil in war industries already have caused the OPC to increase rail transportation of petroleum and to order pooling of facilities by petroleum supply companies. OPC spokesmen said the oil supply in coastal areas is "very definitely affected by the tanker situation" and restrictions designed to alleviate the gasoline shortage have been described by Petroleum Coordinator Harold L. Ickes as "tight and growing tighter." Order Being Prepared Fuel oil is considered the item which must be conserved, Wai- Production board officials said, because of the extensive use in war- industries and the need for it in" heating homes and office buildr ings. Some said an order is being prepared to put under priorities or under direct rationing heavy fuel oil which must be transported in tankers and tank cars equipped with heating coils. Rationing of civiliant supplies to prevent non-essential use of gasoline, WPB officials said, since tankers normally transport some 1,500.000 to 2,000.000 barrels of petroleum a day. Railroads at top capacity could handle only 300 000 barrels. If rationing becomes necessary, it will be administered by OPA in much the same manner as sugar and tires, civilian supply officials said. Victory Meeting Is Planned For Garza County, Feb, 19 'Special To The Avilsnche) POST, Feb. 11—Garza county is planning a county-wide Victory meeting. That was the announcement made today by Herbert Jones, Garza county chairman of a campaign for sale of defense bonds and stamps, who said the rally would be conducted in the Post High school auditorium on the night of February 19 at 8:15 o'clock. George W. Dupree, Lubbock chairman of the 19th congressional district for the bonds and stamps sales; Dr. Clifford B. Jones, president of Texas Technological college; and CoK T. L. Gilbert, commanding officer of the Air Corps' new advanced flying school near Lubbock, have accepted invitations to speak, Jones announced. The Garza county chairman will preside at the meeting. In connection with the announcement of the Victory rallv, Jones said sales of stamps and* bonds in Garza county experienced their greatest week last week when a total of $10,143,10 in bonds and stamps were sold. The county thus far has purchased $30,904 of its quota of .$277,000 set for 1942, Jones said. Sales so far have averaged S5.44 per capita. The county's quota is approximately $50 per capita.

Associated Press) WASHINGTON, Feb. 11.-The soldier whose detection of approaching might have turned Pearl Harbor into a Japanese defeat has been awarded the distinguished service medal, promoted from private to sergeant, and chosen for officer training. The army's acknowledgement of the alertness of the soldier, Sgt. Joseph L. Lockard, of Williamsport, was contained in last night's War department communique which said:"On December 7, 1941, Sergeant Lockard, then a private on duty in Hawaii, was in charge of an aircraft detector unit. He voluntarily remain- ed on duty after hours and during that period detected the approach of a flight of unidentified planes (132 miles distant), which afterwards proved to be the Japanese airplanes which made the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor and military installations. This service of Sergeant Lockard was noted in the recent report of Justice Roberts and his associates who investigated the Pearl Harbor, attack. "In recognition of his services, Sergeant Lockavd was recently promoted from private to staff sergeant and he has been designated to attend the officers candidate school at Fort Monmouth, N. J., beginning March 13, next." As An Expert Sees It— Behind War News By KIRKE L. SIMPSON Wide World War Analyst Even before the last tragic scenes ot a bitter British defeat at Singapore are enacted, London's apprisal of battle reports from Russia Jend an added touch of oom to the war picture. Behind the prolonged smoke screen of official accounts from both Berlin and Moscow, dealing only with reput- E ed enemy casualties in men and war gear, the London observers detect evidence that the great German retreat is coming to a halt. Moscow does not admit that. Berlin and Helsinki both ' tell of rag- . — _,,_„, delivered despite KIRKE SIMPSON staggering losses all the way from north of Leningrad to the Crimea. There has been for days, however, a significant lack of specific Russians claims, official or unofficial, of new towns of strategic importance retaken. Estimates of Nazi casualties and accounts of numerous "populated places" repined afford little data on which to found tactical or strategic analysis. Extent Not Known Nor is it possible yet to measure the extent to .which that amazing Russian winter offensive has crippled Nazi ability to resume a blitzkrieg attack when weather permits. However, it has made even greater inroads on Hitlers reserves of men equipment and oil than the aggeregate of territory retaken by Red forces would imply. Hitler has lost, too, attack springboards of incalcuable value around Moscow and southward in the upper Dbnetz basin if it is another mighty attempt to destroy Russian armies that he is contemplating. That may not be his purpose. Berlin has continuously trumpeted forecasts of a greater offensive in Russia in the spring. That has been the excuse presented for surrender of ground so recently won at great cost in German blood. Revision Of Strategy Nevertheless, Hitler's grim experience in Russia may have led to a complete revision of strategy. IE Russian expectations, sxrongly supported by Sir Stafford Cripps, former British ambassador to Moscow, are borne out, he will localize his sparing attack, centering it on his prime objective, which Js oil. There is some support for that view in two factors. The most stubborn German stand of the great retreat was on the Azov sea flank, in the Taganrog area, after falling back from Rostov. They are still within striking distance of Rostov, entry port of the Caucasus. The single Nazi counter-offensive that has retaken and held an important strategic point since the retreat began was in the Crimea, at Feodosya. The Nazi grip there threatens Red forces on recaptured Kerch peninsula. That is the backdoor via Kerch strait to the Caucasus and its oil. FRI. 13™ 'JINX' PREVUE - mis THRILLS! CHILLS!

April is a preferred Ger- battle month in the southeastern Ukraine and the Crimea, according to "World war precedent, mechanization has only tended' to advance the date of practicability somewhat.
