Elbert Duncan Thomas ;-^pf Utah' that American planes begin bomb- ;:S3ng Japanese cities. .' Who is he that he should attempt to dictate the strategy of the Far Eastern War? Is it because he once was a professor of literature, or because he once was a major in the inspector general's department of, the Army? Of has he let himself be "yessed" so much by underlings and favor-seekers that he has been persuaded he knows all about everything? Men in high- positions sometimes make that sort of an estimte of themselves. Unquestionably, the American people are looking forward to the time when bombs will fall on Japan cities. They take it for granted that it will happen. Someone .will have to answer if it doesn't happen. They ask and demand it not out of lust for blood and not so much out of longing for revenge for the barbarisms of the Japanese. They take the coldly practical view that people like our enemies are going to lose some of their taste for murdering. wars of conquest, if they are made to experience the horrors they have inflicted on peaceful and unoffending" peoples. But the American people don't want this sort of blow attempted until there can be a reasonable expectation of its success. They, don't want to rush into disaster when a _ little 'additional time for preparation might mean success. The American people won't pretend to know when the time to strike has come. .They 'don't think" any senator will know, regardless how many letters emblematic of literary degrees he can stick after his' name. They want. the signal to come from the high commands of the military forces — from the men who have devoted- their lives to preparations for the sort.- of problems which are presented . ,.^by. the Far Eastern war. £tft Ifc would seem that Senator Thomas mighfc render his nation a better service ''PpS an to try to order the military leaders '•->>-around. Certainly,. he has no right to complain and criticize because of what happens in the Far East unless and until the Senate, of which he is a member, gives a better .accounting of the war duties it is supposed to perform — with specific reference atihe:"moment to war labor legisla- . tion. .-""'•-. |Dear Alben" And "Unify" startlin £ was the statement other day by Senator Earkley" of k i r ' New Deal leader in the Senate, he is opposed to restrictive legislation war labor at this time because it might "disturb our national unity."

Does he r see : evidence of national unity in the fact that niillions of citizens have been flooding- .the capital with demands that Congress dp something to remove the brakes that : such things as the 40-hour week, strikes, over-time and double-time have been applying to the war machine? It is his notion "that national unity is achieved when the small minority that is labor is kept satisfied by granting whatever it asks?

The same,"—curtly. But you—I thought you were "You thought I was sleeping off a good drunk under Pavlo's tender care," he finished when she bogged down .under the weight of her amazement. "That was the plan, wasn't it?" She didn't answer, not daring f o .risk telling him too much. I knew you'd gotten your orders he went on dryly. "I knew too, that our friend had loaded my drinks plenty." He laughed, a S 2°J-' mtr - thl ess sound. "Hope the stufi doesn't kill his potted plants I poured enough in to pickle them." This, she realized as she watched sarcasm jerk across his face was- the real. Tom Stafford. For the first time she was actually seeing him with his pretenses down. And the grim strength-of purpose she saw was' not—reassuring! "We'd better get moving, boss " Tom nodded. "What'll we do' with her?"—as if Sharon were inanimate. "Take her along." Knowing it was .futile to protest taken! Half carrying her between them, they raced down the pier m the direction from which she. had come. Into a darkened building, through that to "another door, and down a few steps. The next moment she felt herself being set down onto a boat's deck. A small cruiser, power driven. Tom took the wheel. The engine roared into action and they backed slowly away from the dock, headed out into the bay. Huddled in a heap on the curving, leather-upholstered seat, Sharon tried to corral her thoughts, make some plan for escape. Behind them blazed the flaming warehouse. Dennis and Mr. Goodwin and the others' Were they caught in those flames? Had they given themselves time to get out.' And what desperation had goaded them into destroying that valuable cargo. Surely The wail of sirens, the scream of firetrucks reached them faintly now from across the widening stretch of water. The red lights of ihe fireboat backing out of its harbor on Yerba Buena island. And out of the fog ahead, the aeseeching sound of bell buoys, >f fog horns howling wierdly through the thick white smothering fog. And what had Tom to do with alt this? How had he discovered Mr. Goodwin's plan. How'had he escapad. How had he suceeoed causing all this damage? And in the midst of her frantic pursuit of answers to the;:e fate- tui questions, she came full onto a new realization. She was no longer afraid And, tracing back, she rcal-zed she hadn't been atraid since the moment a burst TJ, aK l e h vf d ^ s t owed her "' w ^ Tom who held her captive 't "L -£ y ' shoyl <ta't she be afraid? - she demanded logically Certainly now that she: knew him positively for her enemy. Hers and Dennis' and Mr. Goodwin's, ferhaps their very liver lay in . h ?" d3 th *s very moment. And yet. the uneasiness she felt now was no kin to the terror she had known m the blackened ware- nouse a few moments ago. Love Watching Tom now, conscious of the clean cut strength of his prolile, tne quiet sureness of his ?u- s ? n the wheel, even the set of his oroad shoulders, she knew why she WES no longer afraid. She was in love with this man. Steadily.the powerful little boat pulled away, from the glowing dock. Now. that the arson was done, Sharon thought suddenly, the guilty ones would make a getaway. Why hadn't she seen that before! Goodwin certainly wouldn't have set fire to that wheat She d been stupid not to see that "Why should he endanger his own and the .lives of the men who worked so hard to help him? Of course.' She straightened now, ap- paled at her own slow-wittedness. Tom and his men had fired chat grain! Her eyes straining through the gathering fog, she tried to see whether the flames were higher now. .Tried desperately to think of some way she could help. Some warning signal—some way to attract attention to this escape. . "They were out in mid-channel now, heading straight up the bay Out of Teach of shore lights, even nearby objects were shrouded in ooscurity. A passing patrol boat loomed close before she had even been aware it was near. Ahead, the bay disappeared behind a white, opaque not be visible, she realized, her hopes sinking. Aware .that her own danger- increased with every moment, Sharon was concerned not so much about that, as about her own inability to warn the others. A boat as powerful as this could travel miles before refueling. Put such distance .between them and their pursuers they, might never be overtaken. If Tom headed out the Gate, into the ocean, she thought, her fears mounting, there would be no wav at all she could Suddenly, Tom. stopped the motor. The boat stopped its headlong "-rush, glided quietly propelled':by momentum, by the wash of water against the sides. In the deep silence, that followed, j.he was moreHhan ever aware of the faanshee-wailings of the foghorns, as thicker: "and more concealing the white blanket settled down over, the water. Now what? She saiy Tom speak to the man beside him but in a voice so loud she couldn't make out anything that he said.. Since they had dumped her onto the wide seat, . shielded from sharp night air-only by partial canopy, they seemed to have forgotten her. Probably, she realized, because she was now in a position to do them no harm. A moment later she saw them checking shells in the gun belts they wore. . "Everything-okay?" Tom stood up. I "Think so, boss." { "The gun on the foreward deck ; loaded?" : "Yep. All set" "Good, I'll take charge of the prisoner if you want to go below and get the radto reports" Tom said quietly. "I'd like to kno-.v just how Closely the bov-^ are coming to catching up with us." •' "You won't be wanting to "end i any message, boss?" t Tom shook his head. ''N'ope I Might be intercepted bv ihe en '' e-my. We'd better take "a chance i we can handle it alone." i Sharon shuddered. If oniv thc-'e' two desperate men couiri 'be intercepted. She glanced buck toward the city. So near and --et~ she shrugged—so impossibly" far Perhapsjf she wntched her chance she might find some wav to -end a message. Alert to this'new angle, she stood up "I think I'l go below, too. Torn " she jied to say as" calmly a<; if ^nf \K7OI* A J*t£* A*Tr».i*r_. _ f t minute. With every shred of control . she had left, she kept her face impassive, her trembling hidden. : 'If you ha : d any notion of pulling a fast one—say, sending a message on that - radio," Tom drawled with uncanny understanding, "just forget it. You can go below, if you like. But we won't have any room for you to make yourself at home in. You-can""get into ona of the bunks arid stay there." The Spy Stalling for time to decide in which place she'd have the best chance to observe what went on, Sharron said, acridly. "You certainly think you know all the answers, don't you?" He nooded, cooly. "Lot of them, I do. Lot of them, I don't, too." ."That sweet modesty." Her tongue curled. "Was this part of your plan, too, to take me prisoner, and then try to frighten me into giving you the information you 'couldn't get any other way?" . "I haven't tried to frighten you," he said, calmly. "And I don't believe you have any information I don't posses already." Such cool audacity. Even how Sharon marvelled at him. . "Really? Then why are you holding me prisoner." Tom shrugged. "You figure that one out. Are you going below or are you staying here? I could hold your hand,"maybe, if you got too lonesome for our mutual friend." Tom, the irrepressible! He'd probably.sit upland make a wise cracK at his. own funeral; "The only time you'll hold my hands now is when-they are in. haad- cuffs." "I don't think we'll find it necessary to handcuff you," he grinned -at the husky seaman who'd stood listening to all this. "What do you think Martens?" "Maybe not, boss, I think you*!! have to gag her though. She talks too much,". Tom nodded: "Hear that? If you are aiming to be a really Grade A spy, Sharon, you'v- got a lot to learn." she echoed. fryi ing "Sure. That's what you've been ymg to do, un'Mt?

"Not that you succeeded any too well, though You always forgot your job in having a good time in spite o£ your best intentions. Didn't you Sharon?" ' Sharon felt humiliation, anger, dispair-^every emotion. So he'd known all along. He'd seen through—everything. He was, and she forced back a sob, despicable He'd known she was attracted to him, falling in love with him even —and he's used that deliberately to further his own plans! "Listen!" Tom spoke sharply, turned to the rail, peered out across the black water. "Hear that?" "Yes, boss." "I was right, wasn't I?" Tom ssid. after a minute. ."They're go- i~^ !c try to run her out. 1 ' Puzzled, Sharon strained to hear what they" heard. Drawing closer across the bay from' the direction cf the burning dock, came the faint sound of ?< boat's engine. That, Sharon jumped at the thought, must be. the Ladybird.

The "little fellow" will get a break if the members stick to their present tentative plan.

Also the hullabaloo diverts public curiosity about the government's failure to start factories for synthetics sooner. Certain money interests claim that Standard Oil, foreseeing probable trouble in raw rubber deliveries from the Far East—long before the Pearl Harbor attack-coffered its own secret formula to Washington but was thumbid down flatly.

That was the reply given today by J. E. McDonald, state agriculture commissioner, to the question raised in a 50-cents-per-copy national farm magazine. The author, E. H. Faulkner, said that he had been a deciple of plowless farming for many years, and pointed to the existence of great forests—which never felt the plow —as the greatest example of the results he is advocating. „ Farm-reared Commissioner Mc- fionald, who still raises crops on the black land of .TIlll ' county, thinks the idea of farming without plosving 1? nonsense. "Most plants would, .smother unless the seedbeds were prepared by plowing and cultivated to eliminate weeds and conserve moisture," said McDonald. "You can drive down any farm country road a few days after a rein and'"see what I mean. Unless they have .been plowed, the : plants will,;, be withering .and "yellowing 'while those where the soil has. > been -mulched —tby— plo\yin^iw,'iill r _be. g'reeorand,healthy.^;:'','.-,'; v •;.'-." "Plowing prepares the seedbeds, and aerates so the seed can germinate. It also conserves moisture." (Faulkner contends that this view —plowing to admit the air and to conserve moisture—is contradictory.) ' '* * +4 Chemical Farming. Suggested McDonald said that there • are cases where -ur.plowed crops, gave better yield than those that were cultivated, but that such occurrences are freaks and do not pay off in—V : year-after-year farming. Kan/ sas this year, he reported, has some unusually good "volunteer" wheat, which grew^without new planting ,from"' seeds that dropped off lasf year's wheat. ~>. "Volunteer late?' summer oats sometimes do'" better in Texas than the planted, cultivated crops, but'such yields are the exception; tath'r than the rule," McDon'ald said. "I expect that cactus also grows better because it isr.i't plowed," said McDonald with a smile.. "It has peculiar growing conditions." The commissioner added that if someone wanted to really grow things without plowing, he could follow the new hydroponic method. __ .'.'You plant your tomatoes in a tub of water, set 'em on the back porch and feed them .; chemicals," he said. •:' * * • -lyrcDONALD said that; he once - Lrj - knew a negro farm hand xvhose employer found him leisurely following the turning plow Funny Business through the field, holding only to one handle and turning almost no soil. The. employer questioned the" darky about it. . ."I can do a much nicer job, boss, just going along'here with one hand on the plow," said the negro. To which the owner replied: "If plows worked better with one handle, John Deere would have put only one handle on it. Git hold of both handles, Jim, and let's git this field plowed!" Commissioner McDonald said that he had done quite a bit of plowing-' in his life, and that if Faulkner's theory ever is proved correct, he will admit that "I sur« wasted a helluva lot cf time." * « .» He Has The Right Idea A rather unusual letter arrived at headquarters of Camp Wolters, Mineral Wells,the other day. It was addressed in a childish scrawl, "Camp Walter, • ..Mineral Wells, Texas; % the .- General." It was from Ponder, Texas. The letter itself was typewritten and said: —-- "Dear General.
