Williams has announced that an opinion on (he constitutionality of Act 107 of. 1945 will be issued this week. The act scnarated the federal and state primaries. W. D. Stewart of Lcwisville, chairman of the Lafayette county Central Democratic Committee requested the ruling. The task of preparing the opinion was assigned to Ike Murry, Williams' chief assistant. o Candidate's Pledge Ruled Too Late Little Rock, April 18 — (/P) — Charles B. Kvy, Springdale attorney and navy veteran, was too late in filing his Democratic parly loyalty pledge to gel into a race with Rep. J.W. Trimble. Bcrry- ville, for the Third District congressional seat. The deadline for filing a parly pledge lo become a candidate in the 1940 Democratic pnmarros was noon yesterday. Ivy's party pledge and corrupt practices pledge arrived here by registered mail at 8:30 a.m. today. The postmark showed Ivy's pledges were mailed from Springdale on April 1C. Harvey G. Combs, Democratic state committee secretary, said he would return Ivy's parly pledge and filing fee with an explanation. Secretary of Stale C. G. Hall said he would keep the corrupt practices pledge, although it was useless without the party pledge. Deadline for filing corrupt practices pledges is June 17. Laic arrival of Ivy's parly loyally pledge left Rep. Trimble, who is completing his first term in iho House, unopposed in the 'primaries. , -.' - 1 • Drive on" Rhine Was Costliest European Battle, Army Report Shows THOUSANDS 30 Missing [~~1 Killed 7TH ARMY LANDS SOUTHERN FRANCE AIRBORNE LANDINGS IN HOLLAND PARIS CAPTURED CHERBOURG CAPTURED 9 20. 4 18 NOV. DEC. Chart above, from Ihc new report by Gen. Jacob L. Devers, Anny Ground Forces commander, to General Eisenhower, shows the battle casualties of Army Held forces on the continent of Europe from D-Day, June 6, 1944, lo January 29, 1945, H is interesting to note that there were more men killed in action during the drive on the Rhine than died in the D-Day invasion of Fortress Europe, Which was expected to be extremely costly in lives. The extreme rise of "missing in action" during the German surprise attack in the Battle of the Bulge probably reflects the number of crisoners taken by the enemy.
