(£>>—A. Berle, assistant secretary of state, 'predicted tonif.'nt that the summer Of 1S42 would make it plain that "the Nazi rulers of Germany have lost the' war and have decreed their own ruin." In an address prepared for a Greek Independence day dinner here, Berle asserted: "We now have imormauon from sources inside of Germany making it clear that the Germans themselves know that there can be but one end. The German people know, as we know, that no provision has been made by the Nazi government for the year 1943. "They know that the machines they need to produce the tools of war are no longer repaired. They kno\v that the skilled workmen and the young engineers who must do the production of tomorrow have been and are being sent, half trained, to the slaughter on the fighting fronts in Russia. They know that the battalions which go out, do not come back— save as a collection of shattered wrecks.

A required trip and part of the regular course for dairy manufacturers majors, the six-day tour will include visits to butter, cheese, ice cream and milk, including condensed and powdered milk plants. Twelve senior students and eight juniors and Howard Wilkouske, graduate assistant in dairy manufactures, are to go. The trip was opened to juniors this year for the first time, since the 1943 tour may not be made because of war conditions, said Renner. An, advanc&d marketing class of 20 juniors and seniors, under direction of J. O. Ellsworth, professor and h'ead of the department of economics and business administration, Texas Technological college, made tours of two downtown concerns Wednesday afternoon. The. group made a trip through Mark Halsey Drug and heard a talk by Mary Halsey, owner, concerning the marketing of drugs and sundries. Later, the class visited Groce Furniture company, at which time F. W. Groce, owner, spoke on buying and merchandising and the problems brought about by the current war situation.

OT • The Agriculture department may make an eleventh-hour appeal to cotton farmers to help avert a threatened shortage of vegetable oils and consequent consumer rationing of cooking fats, shortening, margarine and other related food products. Quick action appeared imminent today as a result of a department survey showing that farmers may not meet the government's production goals for peanuts, one of the crops on which it had pinned hopes for vegetable oils to offset foreign supplies cut otf by the war. Department Disappointed Shortly after the attack 'Communist Is Freed On Bail NEW YORK, March 25.

The event is scheduled for Sunday, March 29, at the Baker Hotel Crystal ballroom. It is expected that several Lubbock players will participate in the event. Anyone interested in participating or witnessing the spectacle is advised to contact Dr. R. S. Underwood, who is in charge of ticket sales for the Lubbock area. acres. The farmers' planting plans, based on a check of 77,000 represented growers, indicated a prospective acreage of only 4,150,000. Frankly disappointed, officials said the report made it necessary for the department to re-examine its crop program and to take steps to assure a greater production of vegetable oils. Cotton seed, they pointed out, is a source of such oil. However, production of cotton is being limited to 27,500,000 acres because of a surplus. Would Replenish Liriters Some officials said it might be found advisable to increase the cotton allotment to permit a larger output of feed for oil. An increase, if decided upon, would have to be made soon because planting time is near at hand. These same officials contend that a larger acreage of cotton would not only insure a larger supply of vegetable oil, but would replenish dwindling supplies . of cotton linters, vital to the manufacture of munitions. didate for governor of Texas in 1936 and 1S38, was freed today in $2,000 bail pending 3. hearing in proceedings to remove him to Houston to faco a charge that he failed to report to his local draft board March 4. Bartchy's original bail of $5,000 was reduced by U. .S. Commissioner Isaac Platt after his lawyer asserted that the Texan had not attempted to evade Army service, but had signed to serve as . a seaman in order to raise money 'with which to help his ii- ancee, a medical student, pay her tuition. Her name was not disclosed. Did Not Get Mail The lawyer, Raymond L. Wise, said Bartchy had earned about $1,000 as a seaman and was about to sail on another voyage when he was notified that he was wanted by his draft board in Houston. Wise said that Bartchy had given the headquarters of the National Maritime union as his mailing address and had not received his board notice in time to report on the date named. Increase In Price Of Gasoline Okayed . WASHINGTON, March 25. (/P) —The government today approved a price increase on gasoline and fuel oil in 17 Eastern and Southern states and the District of Columbia, effective immediately, to' compensate for higher oil trans-' portation costs resulting from tanker sinkings. Tank wagon gasoline prices will be boosted half a cent a gallon throughout the area, and service station operators in all of the states, except Georgia and Florida, will be permitted to increase prices accordingly. : Other states affected are Maine; New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode; Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

The Senate banking committee today approved legislation designed to help thousands of small plants and industries share in war production and authorized a $100,000,000 fund for the''program. The final draft of the much- amended measure calls for creation of a "smaller war plants corporation" and represents one of the few legislative defeats that Security oE Commerce Jones has suffered at hands of a congressional committee. Members of the Senate banking committee and the special Senate committee on small business said that Jones sought to control the new agency but that the banking committee rejected his proposed amendments. Youth Arrested For Theft Of Bicycle A 17-year-old Floyd, N. M., youth was arrested late Wednesday by Earl Horton, police patrolman, and was being held for investigation of bicycle theft. „ A bike belonging to Tom Stephens of-1918 Seventh street was stolen in 700-block Broadway and the New Mexico youth was caught with it in his possession. Rarely is an arrest made lor bicycle theft, one official pointed out, although there are many complaints of thefts. Most of the wheels are found abandoned. Another bike was stolen, from Forman Daniel of 502 Avenue K, police said. J. B.. Galbraith of Arlington said he had mislaid a sample case and asked police to forward it to him if it is recovered.

Soviet dispatches recapitulated Nazi losses at more than 150,000 in dead alone since Feb. 9. The ski unit which broke into Staraya Russa apparently was just a raiding party. It made a rapid 30-mile trek across the ice of Lake llmen north- of the city to free several hundred Russian prisoners from a camp in the city's fen- virons. Tonight's regular communique said the German counter-attack occured on the Kalinin front, the name given the area northwest of Moscow, and that "all enemy counter-attacks were repulsed with grea.t losses to the enemy." Galveston Boasts Best Traffic Record AUSTIN, March 25. (IP) —Galveston with 257 deathless days to its credit presented the best traf- fie safety record made by any Texas city in the 50,000-100,000 population bracket in the past four years, the State Public Safety department announced today. The Galveston deathless stretch was exceeded only by San Angelo's, 307 fatality ;free days but on the basis of computation approved by safety engineers Galveston's record was better. Galveston had 15,641,534 deathless man days compared to 7,921,000. The difference is because of a smaller population in San Angelo. Other Texas cities in the 50,000-100,000 group' were progressing nicely in their safety efforts, statisticians reported. . • Port Arthur, bustling .with industrial activity, reached its 144th deathless day or 6,644,100 deathless man-days.

OT—Federal Agent A-rthur Redmond had a twinkle in his eye when he set out to apprehend an alleged car thief named—Arthur Redmond. He arrested his 28-year-old namesake late yesterday, along with the letter's younger brother, Andrew Jackson Redmond, 21. He said both admitted they had stolen an automobile in Wichita Falls Tex., and had driven it to Neosho, Mo., where they stole another in which they came to California The younger Redmond brother wore the uniform of the California state guard and was on probation from a forgery conviction said the federal agent, and the elder had served two years in the Oklahoma state penitentiary for car theft and was wanted at Camp Grant, III., as a deserter in Sep tember, 1941. Both were held for the U. S commissioner. British Merchant Ship Sunk By Sub NORFOLK, Va., March 25.

Lindbergh Is Offered Position By Ford DETROIT, March 25. (.<P) — Henry Ford, it was learned today, has offered Charles A. Lindbergh a position in the rapidly growing Willow Run bomber plant and Lindbergh is considering the offer. The offer was made as Ford, Lindbergh and a group of others inspected the bomber plant and airport yesterday. Lindbergh returned to Washington following an all-day visit with Ford. The exact nature of the position to be offered Lindbergh was not disclosed beyond the intimation that Ford was eager to obtain his services in the bomber plant engineering department. The Navy communique reporting on the raids was issued simultaneously with release of news dispatches from the fleet base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, giving first hand accounts of the attacks. Navy spokesmen said the Marcus haid was "swift and cleanly- completed." A high Navy officer who saw the attack at Wake said that the big seaplane shot down there was caught "in the direct line of gunfire from our ships and planes." It "exploded and disintegrated when a third burst from a ship's batteries struck it," he added, "and parts of the plane were fcund embedded in the wings of an American fighter. That was coming pretty close." Patrol Boats Sunk Buy A Defense Bond TODAY1 Sailor Follows In Steps Of Ancestor GREAT LAKES, 111., March 25.

That, in effect, was the word from the chamber of commerce, on the second floor of the City hall, Wednesday afternoon, in regard to the public's response to an appeal for current magazines and games for men in the hospital of Lubbock Army Flying school. Officials explained that although the first day's response was "good," more current periodicals and several more games could be used.

"Fuel barges, dredges and similar equipment were destroyed, and a few prisoners were brought back. They, were taken from the water. (Presumably they were men from the destroyed boats.) "Wake was quite well defended by coastal batteries. Our surface bombardment group, of considerable gun power, silenced a large part, and air bombardment accounted for a large part of the remainder." Despite the intensity of the duel between the ships and shore batteries, none of the American ships was hit, the Navy officer said. The Japanese thus fell far short of the American marines in their de- defense of Wake. Of Little Use To Japan In the 14-day period beginning Dec. 7, during which the marines held Wake—losing it only when the enemy moving in with overwhelming forces—they destroyed seven Japanese warships by plane and artillery action. Destruction of the enemy installations there indicated there was little possibility that the islands, lying 2,000 miles west of Pearl Harbor, ever would prove very useful to the Japanese. They apparently were trying to develop it as an airplane supply base but the impossibility of protecting it adequately would appear to make it more a liability than an asset for them. Naval authorities here described Marcus as also primarily a supply base with the added possibility that the radio station there may have served the Japanese in detecting American ship and planes movements in that section of the Pacific.

The Congress party chief, Maulana Abdul Kalan Azad, emerged from the meeting with an air of grave preoccupation, declining any comment. The Moslem, Mohammed \Ali Jinnah, was all smiles as he left Cripps, asserting the British cabinet plan would be placed before the Moslem league's working committee on Friday. fn the central legislative assembly lobbies, Congress party and Moslem members said the proposals met the demands of all parties, that a self-governing India freely More High Salaries Bared For Committee WASHINGTON, March 25.
