PAGE EIGHT—THE MORNING AVALANCHE Lubbock, Texas, Friday, April 3, 1942 Cohnally Says United States Forces Strong Enough To Hold Oial 4343 for The Avaranche-JouHioT Offie« By Vice Admiral (By The Associated Press) WASHINGTON. April 2. — Chairman ConnaUy (D-Tex) £?id night, today that on the basis of information given the Senate foreign Scottish Rite Masons Hold Maundy Thursday Services relations committee --today by Vice Admiral Thomas P G. Hart he was encouraged to -believe', that the United States forces were sufficiently strong to hold Australia as a base for future! offensive action. Hart, appearing before the.com- mittee in a closed session, was said to have been questioned in detail aboue the disposition of Allied forces in. the southwestern Pacific where he turned over the command of the United Nations navs.1 units' to a Dutch admiral before the. fal lof Java to the Japanese. •.,"..' Supplies Being Sent "Apparently," Connally told re T porters, "the military and naval situation in the southwest .Pacific is much more helpful than some of-'us had thought. From, such information as is available, in my opinion , the United Nations have been able to get considerable supplies and aircraft .to Australia." '."Australia has brought back many of her land troops and on the whole I believe that- the United Nations will be .able to hold there while offensive .power is being built up." . . - . : Admiral Hart, reviewing operations in the whole Pacific war theater, was said to have'declined to. estimate how long American and Filipino troops could hold out on Luzon and Corregidor in the Philippines before reinforcements came. Fifty Scottish Rite Masons from® six consistories attended . thai ritualistic observance of Maundy 1 Thursday in Hilton hotel Thursdav night. James M. Gordon, desn of the arts and sciences division of Texas Technological college, led in the ritualistic ceremonies, which are obligatory to Scottish Rite Masons throughout the world. Similar rites were conducted in all civilized nations. .-. Following the invocation by pr. Jack M. Lewis, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, a banquet was served. "An Editor Looks at the Events of the Day," was 'the subject of the principal address by Chas. A. Guy, editor of the Avalanche- Journal publications. Bradley Is Elected Durwood K. Bradley was elected president of the South Plains Shrine club, sponsor of the banquet, succeeding R. S. Rodgers. Parker F. Prouty and Ed Parker were re-elected vice president and secretary, respectively. W. R. McDuffie, Brownfield banker, and H. R. McKee of Slaton, division superintendent of the Santa Fe, were named additional vice presidents. J. O; Jones offered a toast to "departed brethren everywhere, and more especially to Dr. C. M. Ballenger, a fellow Scottish Rite member." Neil H. Wright presented a 33rd degree ring to Tom May of Brownfield. The honorary 33rd degree was conferred upon May last January, making him the second Mason of such rank on the South Plains. The other is John Dairy- IE pie of Lubbock. DURWOOD H. BRADLEY Philippines Free •. (Continued From Page One) began his trip to Australia could k'eep the islands' inner shipping lanes entirely clear of the enemy. Available "Air Fields There are dozens of air fields and scores of ports in the inner Philippines from which American planes and ships could operate. There are. American and Filipino fighting forces on almost every island. ' :-The war goes on not only on Bataan but on Mindanao, where the. Mores, under U.- Si officers, " frequently attack the Japanese. ^he Japanese are reported to have put in uniform several thousand 1 young Japanese nationals who lived at Davao before the war. Yet despite their overwhelming numer- icil superiority, the invaders are said to. fear the Moros so much that every night hundreds of the Japanese return.to their ships to sleep. . . i ' ^ Drive Turned Back •-: ?;3"he Moros turned back one Japanese drive south of Davao in January. . . r On other islands we found American' and Filipino forces Commission Opposes Harold ickes r Plan AUSTIN, April 2. (&) —A majority of the Texas Railroad- commission today opposed Federal Oil Coordinator Harold L. Ickes' proposal to. boost crude production in the Texas Panhandle. '" Jerry Sadler, member • of the state oil regulatory agency, agreed with Olin Culherson that a readjustment of statewide allowable production to permit moving 82,500 barrels of Panhandle_ crude daily to Chicago via pipe line was unfeasible. "It is my opinion," Sadler asserted on' returning from a trip, "that the petroleum coordinator has been misinformed by his advisors who are looking out for their, own interests and not for the welfare of the state as a whole. Idle pipe line facilities are available to secure this additional oil from other sections of tht state." Culberson has suggested the current 30,000 barrels daily produced in the Panhandle and sent largely to the Gulf coast be made available to the Phillips Petroleum company for -northward pipe line movement. Steps To Coordinate War Efforts Taken WASHINGTON, April 2. (/P) — New steps . towards coordinating the war. effort were reported today by the War department in announcing the change of the Army general staff's war plans division into an operations division. Maj Gen. Dwight Eisenhower has • been designated chief of operations. As such he "heads the division which is the controlling nerve : center of the Army for all United States theaters of operations : and overseas garrisons," the War department said. This division will also coordinate strategical and operational planning with the U. S. Navy, and with the military headquarters of all united powers," it was added. As a part of the move, stralegi- call planning groups of the Army and Navy have been .merged, Standard-Oil Defends Stand \VASHINGTON. April'2. (/P)— Officials of Standard oil company (New Jersey) acknowledged today that the company sought in 193940 to prevent individual companies from undertaking development of Standard's synthetic rubber ioi use in tires, but said this policy was adoped in the belief that large scale development could be achieved only by cooperative action oi the major rubber companies. This testimony was given to the Senate defense investigating committee by W. S. Farish, president and F. A. Howard, vice-president of the company. -Denying that the objective o the company's policy was to main tain a monopoly control over syn thetic rubber, processes acquirec from I..G. Farben, the company' German associate, the officials as serted that they had taken th lead in attempting to develop synthetic rubber in the UnStec States, and had followed a policj recommended by- the Army an Navy munitions board. Project Abandoned "We didn't see now synthetic rubber could ever compete with natural rubber," Howard told, the committee, "unless all the interested parties pitched in and tried to make a go of it as a cooperative matter." ;As a result of this belief and the concurrence of the Army and Navy, Howard said, when Standard acquired control of Farben's patents in this country in 1939, it issued only "stop-gap" licenses to-rubber companies for use in making relatively high-p r i c ed specialty items and to fill only their immediate needs until arrangements could be made for an industry-wide, joint venture. Because Standard's lawyers concluded that such a venture might violate the anti-trust laws, Howard testified, the project was abandoned. Has Two Loyalties During questioning of the wit- News Briefs Notification of appointment as hairman of the committee on varrants and charters to serve during the May 10 through 13 con- ention of the Grand Lodge Cnights of Pythias of Texas in Corpus Christi, has been received by Victor H.

S. district court from the Yoakum county district court • where it was appealing from a decision of the state accident board on his injury claim, Mrs. Olive Fluke,, deputy clerk, ; said.

Hart ford Accident & Indemnity Co. To complete enlistment in Ih U. S. Marine corps, Cecil M. Cor ell of Amarillo left Thursday af ernoon for Oklahoma City, ac ording to Sgt. Glenn McComas.
