(U.PJ—Navy Minister Admiral Sh'gelaro Shimaua told the Japanese parliament today in' a report on the fall of Singapore that Japanese submarines already were in the Indian ocean and that Japanese naval operations there now would be increased. Similarly forecasting broadened operations now that Singapore has been knocked out, Co!. Hideo Ohjra, chief of the army press section, said in a broadcast "Japan is in a position to control the fate of India and Australia." Reporting first to Emperor Hirohito and then to the Diet, Japan's military leaders said that 60,000 British and imperail troops had laid down their arms in unconditional surrender at Singapore, and that the Japanese navy had taken over the big fleet bases and such British ships as remained there. Transports Hit What ships remained were no 1 specified, but imperial headquar ters claimed earlier that 32 trans ports attempting to remove thi_ British were damaged or forcet aground and that the 5,200-ton British cruiser Arethusa, a ligh cruiser, an auxiliary cruiser, a submarine and two gunboats were among vessels believed sunk. Word of the fall of the British stronghold at 10 p. m. Sunday (9 a. m. EWT Sunday) brought out the biggest headlines of the war in Tokyo newspapers and touched off great street celebrations. Formal observance of the victory will be Wednesday when the main body of Japanese troops is expected to make its triumphal entry into Singapore city. Still Under Arm« Domei said 1,000 British troops were permitted to remain under arms temporarily as an auxiliary police force. The rest, the news agency said, would be taken at once to prison camps. Domei said the 60,000 troops reported captured included 15,000 British troops, fortress guards and volunteers, 13,000 Australians, and the rest Indians and native troops. The British first asked for terms at 2:30 p. m. Sunday, Domei reported. It said Lieut. Gen. A. E. Percival, the British commander, agreed to the unconditional surrender demanded by Lieut. Gen. Tom o y u k i Yamashita, Japanese commander-in-chief, in a 49-minute meeting starting at 7 p. m. at a Ford Motor company plant just outside the city of Singapore. ElMson Child Buried In Meadow On Friday MEADOW, Feb. IB (Special)— Last rites for Etta Juanita Ellison, 8-year-old daughter of Mr. and' Mrs. E.

She is survived by her parents; three sisters, Hhoda Fay, Audia Alice and Joy Adaline, and four brothers, J. E., W. H., Ernest and Jackie. . Children of Meadow school attended the funeral in a group.

Tax Collections Are Excellent According to report at city hall M o n. d a y, tax payments to the city before penalties' went into effect Feb. 1 totaled more than 90 per cent of the tax roll. Thr.i final figure, which has not yet been reported, may run above 90 per cent. It will be the highest ratio svithin the memory of veteran city officials, they said. • ' Time Is Required The ':otal of the taxes listed on the 1941 roll is $323,057.52. Exact figures as to collections have not been reported, it was explained, because of the time required to give credits for the payments which reached the city hall in an avalanche of mail the last few days of the tax payment period. In comparison with other cities, the ratio of prompt tax payments in Lubbock invariably is among the highest in Texas, Not infrequently, it is the .highest. Emphasizing this record, officials pointed out, is the fad that when budgets for political divisions are prepared, they are on the basis of the estimate that 10 per cent of the assessed laxes will be uncol- lectable at any time. Lubbock has never failed to improve on that record very substantially. Delinquent laxes outstanding at Ihis time, amounting represent less than one-fourth of one per cent of the tax rolls on which they originally were listed.

A large staff of civil service utilities employes at the new Lubbock Army Flying School will vouch for that. Acting under the direction of First Lt. Vincent S. Alello, post utilities officer, the staff is charged with the complete operation, maintenance and repair of the brand- new field. Like a city administration, these workers are prepared to handle fire protection, central heating and power, water treatment and pumping, sewage disposal, refrigeration, roads, walks and drainage work, carpentry, electricity, heating and painting. But that isn't all. Men are still needed,' according to Lt. Alello, for certain positions —junior operations engineer for water treatment, for instance. Applications are now being received at the utilities office at the base 10 miles west of town. NIGHT ONLY; THURS. FEB. 19TH the music of America's NEW STAGE-SCREEN- RADIO Favorite!
