VISIT OUR NEW GIRL SCOUT DEPARTMENT FDR Orders Streamlining Of War Departmen ' f Vote On Addition To City Up Today C i r c u 1 a rs both favoring and opposing the city limits extension proposition which comes up for vote today were distributed- Monday. The areas lie northwest of the present city limits and consist of the sub-divisions known as the Friend's, the Arnett &• Benson and the Maddox. So far as could be discovered at the city hall, about the only interest in the election was that among the residents of the proposed extension. None was evident within the city—and residents within the present city limits must give their approval before the boundaries can be extended. One of the opposition circulars being distributed had this to say, among other things: "Many a good old boy arid girl has gone wrong by being attached to the bright lights of the glamorous city." One statement, contained in an unsigned opposition circular was refuted immediately by city officials. That statement was that if the city limits are extended, the residents there would be required to pay $300 or more immediately for connections with the city sewage system. The actual cost of such a connection, city officials said, would be "not more than a lew dollars, at most."

Essential facts in the election are these: » The polling place will be the municipal courtroom in the police department building, Ninth street and Avenue J. Polls will open- at 8 a. m. and close at 7 p. m. Separate ballot boxes and election officials will be provided for voters living within the city and for those living within the proposed extension. A majority in favor will have to be cast by both groups before the city commission can consider an ordinance extending the city limits. Eligible to vote will be property tax paying voters with new poll tax receipts or exemption certificates living within the present city limits or within the proposed extension. City officials have approved a re-platting of a portion of Friend's addition adjoining the northwest city limits and change of its name to "Parks addition", city officials said Monday. The action has been taken, officials said, on the application of Mrs. Anna F. Parks, the. owner, widow of the late C. E. Parks, j former mayor of Lubbock. The area, which has been cut up into lots, extends from First to- Second streets, a distance of two blocks with Edna street lying between, and from College to Madison avenues, a distance of four blocks. Within it, bounded by First, Edna, Jefferson and Adams, is the site on which an option has been taken by city school trustees for the possible erection of a school building.

FRATERNITY ENDS WEEK BLOOMINGTON, 111., March 2 By EDWARD E. BOMAR Associated Press Stall Writer WASHINGTON, March 2 — President Roosevel. ord(red • a sweeping streamlining of the entire War department today, giving the Army air forces full e q u a 1 i ty with the combined ground arms. After- the German model, military functions were grouped into three basic units, the Army ground : forces. Army air forces and. the services o£ supply, each with Its own commander under the chief of staff. Effective March 9 . Involving a general revamping of cumbersome peacetime machinery set up two decades ago the president's executive order was made effective March 9 for the duration of the war and for six months thereafter. It abol ished bureaus .and commands o a. half dozen or more generals. Secretary of War Stimson described the move as a 'striking revitalizalion and' sweeping reorganization of the entire War department," to help win the war. Existing staff procedure was "too cumbersome," he said. Marshall Still Chief Gen. George C. Marshall remains as chief o£ staff and Lieut. Gen. H. H. Arnold as chief of the air forces. To command the n e w 1 y - g rouped ground forces,' Lieut. Gen. Lesley J. McNair was shifted from Chief of staff b£ Army general headquarters. Maj. Gen. Brehon B. Somervell, now assistant chief of staff, in charge of supply, was given command of the new services of supply. - A "small-, alert,xcompact air- ground general'' staff \viH be provided," the War department said, to assist Gen. Marshall. It will be only a fraction the size of the present force of assistants. Like the grouping of ground, air and supply functions, this was seen in military quarters as following the pattern of th". German milii- tary machine. Emphasis On Air The added emphasis laid on the air forces, which only a few months ago won a semi-autonomous status under Gen. Arnold prompted one official to observe '"the air forces are taking over.' The revised air command wil have its own general staff administrative set-up. The president's order, issued under authority of the first wa powers act, applied to Army ac tivities within the United Stales It authorized the secretary of War to set up such overseas departments, task forces, base commands or other commands are deemed "necessary for national security." : ive Negroes Held For Th«ft Of Boots Five negroes were being held Monday-night in Lubbock rounty ail for questioning in connection with theft of several pairs of boots from Hernnbill-Wetts Co. One;'of them Melvin Smith, 24, was charged in justice court of Walter Davics with the theft. Smith, it was recalled by the sheriff's department, was punished for theft of eggs from Douglas Produce Co., 802 Main street. He on two occasions visited the produce store and each time, while" employes were in another part of the building, would set a case of eggs off a stack, then 'sell" the eggs back to the company. The third time he sot two cases on the floor, then fled when detected. 3. C. Hassell, jr., signed the complaint, prepared by the district attorney's office.
