' i~ ~~~— Greater Production fif Hogs Said Needed Y Greater production of hogs to get facts to replace oils heretofore imported from the Far East and from other war zones, is needed in Texas, E. M. Regenbrecht of College Station, swine specialist of the state extension service, told a group of county farnl agents Thursday afternoon in a called conference at Lubbock hotel. i Already, he explained, Texas pas increased its hog production ;47 per cent, for this year over last. But there must be still greater increases. "We were asked to to increase hog production 17 per cent," he added. "Just a lot of oils and fats that used to come from Across the sea, have been cut off by the war. We need fat for gly- fcerin, so badly needed in muni- Jions manufacture. More must be produced here in the United States." ;.. The South Plains area, he explained, is leading the state in the iiumber of sows bred for spring pigs." : .This section Has.doubled its pumber of sows bred for spring .-farrowing.

Germans Said Losing Faith In Herr Hitler LAKE CHARLES, La., March 5. (ff) — The German people are losing faith in Hitler "for the main reason that he has announced to them time and again that Russia was beaten," Price Hubertus zu Loewenstein told an audience here last night, Loewonstein, said "600,000 peo pie are in Nazi concentration camps and that to date over one million Germans have gone through concentration camps et one time or another." "The politician Hitler knows he must go on winning," he said, ''bu( the fighter Hitler knows he is beaten. The German people are losing faith in'him." Sustaining the Nazi regime, the prince added, is a powerful propaganda weapon found in "the fear of national annihilation in case o'f military defeat. It is this feat that Hitler is taking advantage of in holding his people to gether."
