Produce *, More Funds Fbr insurance Asked (By The As,wc!ated P«ss) WASHINGTON, March 2—The use Tex?s Panhandle wheat farmers have made of the federal crop insurance program since its inception three years ago on the A g r i c ulture department appropriation bill introduced today in the House. Testifying before • a House app r o p nations subcommittee in support of a request for funds to continue operation of the program .was the insurance corporation manager, Leroy K. "Smith. Can Use Experience He declared that the experience gained in the wheat insurance program would be used as much as possible in initiating this year a similar crop insurance program for cotton. Cotton crop prospects cannot be judged before hand with as great a degree of accuracy as in the case of wheat, he said, after acknowledging that some wheat' growers in he past had taken out insurance when weather conditions prompted long range crop failure forecasts. "Every year crop failure, in Official Records .. news. The list developed slightly easier tone tbut please do it swiftly. Mr. ;Kelly, I'll call you every morning ^ until I can see you." "Promises Broken" v Mrs'. Barr testified the letter 'made her realize at last that her jhusband's promises to end his a£- ifair with the dancer had been 'broken and that she decided to ;see Mrs. Woodall again, adding: i "I. thought I could frighten her ;into leaving him alone." ; In answer to a question, Mrs. |Barr said she carried her father's .pistol with her to the dancer's apartment the night of April 12 ^ fs^t, ji, jiavj no itiLcnLton or Siioot- ;ing her." i She testified that Mrs. Woodall, lifter admitting -writing the letter, '.said: "It's all over between Eddie (and me," and that the two-then v"went into the kitchen, drank some ! whisky and discussed the domestic | tragedy. i Mrs. Barr said her rival then ! advised her to soften her ap- [pearsjQce, that the two went to the ibedroom and the dancer made up -,Mrs. B'arr's face and fixed her ihair, saying, "you're wearing your {hair too sevexe, -Juanita." | ; "Things Went Blank" i At this point, Mrs. Barr related, sine phone rang, she recognized her •husband's voice when Mrs. Wood. fc aU, answered, and the latter cut ,the caller off abruptly with: "Call ;me back later, Mr. Kelly." j . She said her husband and Mrs. .Woodall referred to themselves as ,*Mr. and Mrs. Kelly, j- "I heard his voice on the phone ?and I knew what he said about Jbreaking up with Blanche wasn't > so." r Then, Mrs. Barr continued things -went blank, she didn't re^member taking the gun out of the t purse or how many times she ffired, but she did remember Mrs. ^Woodall grabbing her arm and it.heir struggle over the gun. jBig Soviet Attack I (Continued From Page One) [soldiers showed no hesitation, re- Jgardless of the cost .-. He said the Soviet Siberian units ^admittedly were demonstrating •'!' a j most uneblievable stubborness.' _: 'There, can no longer be any .doubt," he wrote, "that the Soviets -are massing all their forces in men 'and material for a fantastic efforl ;to bring about a decision." i "Nazis Must Retreat" • In Lisbon, Portugal, a foreign onihtary expert told the Associated Tress that "the Germans must jretreat to positions west of all the ..big rivers in Russia before the [thaw begins, or they will run the great risk of being crushed by.the Soviets for lack of communications." I This man who knows Russia forecast such a Jfazi withdrawa soon because, he said, "no pontoons pr any kind of military bridges can resist the stiong currents o ;swo!ien Russian rivers during th< spring thaw which lasts at leas ,lnree weeks.' at the start and. a/ound mid-day, losses for leaders ran to a point or more. There were scattered recoveries In the conclud- Inr hour but most were, feeble. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks finished with a net drop of .3 of a point at 35.7, -widest dip since Feb. 17. Transfers amounted to 325,305 shares compared with 361.840 in the previous S-hour. stretch.

Trading sentiment was dominated by the controversy between the administration nd the farm bloc over terms for market- US surplus commodlltes under government ontrol, but belief apparently leaned toward an administration victorv.

Meanwhile, the possibility that Japan has been forced to dig into her reserves of equipment to maintain her fighting strength in the Philippines was suggested in military circles today after planes believed to be German-made appeared in bombing raids over MacArthur's positions in Bataan. An army communique reported that heavy aircraft participating in local bombing raids, which caused no dam- • age, included three two-engine planes with usual markings. Painted black, with three crosses on the wings, they were tentatively identified as of German manufacture. Some military quarters . thought it: was likely that Japan's major assaults on Java and Burma.were straining her resources of first-line equipment, and reserve material was being utilized in other areas whenever possible. This view was supported by the fact that the longrexpect- ed all-out drive to the Japanese against MacArthur's lines has not yet started. The Army communique this morning reported again that "there were practically no ground operations in Bataan during the past twenty-four hours." Eclipse Of Moon Is Visible Monday Night An eclipse of the moon early Monday night was plainly visibile to the naked eye. Starting shortly after sundown, the earth's shadow moved across the moon until perhaps less than five per cent could be seen. A lower portion of the moon could be seen. ' * The nearrtolal eclipse continued, nearly an -hour and from start to finish nearly two hours elapsed. Battle For Java '.:..-, (Continued From Page One) ing, much was obscured, but amone the visible features was thp use of taxicab transport—like that which carried the shouting poilus forward a generation ago to save Paris—to rush fighting men to the broad beach 'fronts along the ijortherri Java shore. The second phase of the battle for Java, the keystone in the East Indies arch and the last barricade to the Indian ocean, thus hati opened with the Allies taking the ini- tative, as illustrated by this order of the day to the British section of the Allied line: "British troops in Java: We have the honor to be about to fight with our Dutch and American Allies in the defense of the last strong-hoif of democracy in the Southwest Pacific. Well-Armed Opponents "The Japanese are. skillful and wall-armed opponents and the likely to be in superior numbers. They fight better on attack than on defense, and therefore our best chance is to attack wherever we can. "Attack and not defense must be our watchword ..." 'The Allied air arm remained in powerful action— so powerful that there were some indications that this time, and for the first time, the Japanese enemy apparently lacked superiority aloft. Recapitulating action of Sunday, the Dutch command announced that Allied fighter planes failing upon an enemy invasion train of 20 enemy transports between Toeban and Rembang in the coastal waters west of the Soerabaja naval base had smashed the enemy landing sloops "with few exceptions," hurling tanks and troops into the sea. A Dutch torpedo boat in an overnight Sunday-Monday foray sank a Japanese flotilla leader (a cruiser or big destroyer) in the eastern waters of the Java sea to bring Japanese ship casualties to at least 27 sunk or damaged. The Japanese claimed, withoul confirmation from any quarter that five Allied cruisers had beer sunk—one of them a U. S. ship- along with six destroyers. The enemy's deepest known penetration of Java was in the western island, where he hac reached Soebang, within 30 miles of Bandoeng itself. (British dispatches stated there was good reason to believe that this Japanese column had been cut off by Alliec counter-attacks,) Marriage Licenses Svju G.

Once Owner Of Big Ranch Death Victim ALPINE, March 2 (iPh- "Uncle" •Jim . .Daugherty, 92, who once owned the second largest ranch in Texas, died .today, bringing to a close a career of romance and accomplishments in the West known to only a few hardy pioneers. He' was a native of Texas county, Mo., and arrived in Denton, Tex., at the age of 15 to begin driving cattle up the Kansas trails after he was refused enlistment in the. Confederate army. After nine .years on the cattle trails he settled in Graham City, Tex., and in 1877 was largely responsible for organizing the Texas Cattleman's association, now known as the.
