Parity Rate Boost?
Lieut. Gen. Lesley J. McNair, commanding general of the U. S.
army ground forces (right), congratulates army officers to whom he han
awarded the Order of the Purple Heart. The decorated heroes who
were wounded In action against the Axis forces in Africa are, seated left
to right, Lieut. Darrel G. Lee. Inglewood. Calif. Lieut. Leslie Ward
Dooley, Athens, Tenn. and Capt. Ford Allcorn, Boonville. Mo. Standing
in background is Brig. Gen. Floyd
Farm parity prices would have to
be revised upward 12 ft per cent if
a bill passed by the house of repre
sentatives is eventually enacted into
The measure passed by unanimous
vote would require the department
of agriculture to raise parity prices
for all agricultural commodities, to
include all costs of labor, including
hired hands and farmers them
That such action would be strongly
opposed by President Roosevelt in
his anti-inflation efforts was indicat
ed by the fact that a similar pro
vision included in the price act
amendment last fall was bitterly
fought by the administration and
finally compromised.
Explaining the provisions of their
measure, house agricultural com
mittee member* explained that un
der the existing setup no allowance
is now given farmers for their labor
costs in fixing price ceilings, in spite
of the fact that “farm wage rates
were going up daily.” The farmers
ask no more than “equality treat
ment,” the committee declared.
“They know that every manufac
turer is permitted to include his la
bor cost in figuring his costs of pro
Naval Phases Disclosed
Naval guns of the British fleet
added their power to the arms of
the Allied forces pressing hard on
the Axis defenders of Tunisia, by
sinking four supply transport ships
and two destroyers in a convoy
carrying supplies and reinforcements
to North Africa.
Announcement of the victory
came soon after the admiralty and
U. S. navy department disclosed
that the Allies had lost 16 vessels
during the original A.E.F. landings
in North Africa. The toll was de
scribed as considerably smaller than
originally expected.
Included in the United Nations*
losses were the British small air
craft carrier Avenger, three destroy
ers and five lighter vessels as well
as five U. S. naval transports.
As the stage was set for the final
showdown for control of Tunisia, the
German-controlled Paris radio ad
mitted that a British-American col
umn had penetrated to the east
coast of Tunis and had advanced be
tween Sfax and Gabes.
With opposing forces concentrat
ing in a narrow coastal area between
the cities of Tunis and Bizerte Allied
advances had slowed down in the
face of strengthening German re
Despite continuing vigilance of Al
lied sea and air patrols, the Axis had
admittedly gained reinforcements.
In certain areas they achieved local
air superiority. Moreover the fierce
ness of their attempted counterat
tacks and the presence of consider
able Axis mechanized equipment in
the Tebourda-Djedeida area indicat
ed the enemy’s unexpected strength.
People Will Decide
As evidence mounted that Admiral
Jean Darlan intended to make his
leadership in North Africa perma
nent, official Washington reiterated
its declaration that the French peo
ple ultimately will be the ones to de
cide who is to rule.
Spokesman for the administration
was Secretary of State Cordell Hull,
who said laconically that the United
States was too busy winning the wax
in North Africa to worry about re
ports that Darlan had taken over.

U. S. naval forces decisively beat

$25,000 Ceiling?
Even as salary freezing regula
tions were made public through
out the nation, congress was invited
by President Roosevelt to put a $25,

to match the $25,000 ceiling imposed
on net salaries by James F. Byrnes,
director of economic stabilization.

Whistles in Dark
With powerful American and Brit
ish armies only a few hundred miles
the Mediterranean from Italy,
with northern industrial cities rocked
by RAF bombing attacks, and with
Prime Minister Churchill's grim
warning of future disaster still rang
ing in his ears, Benito Mussolini de
livered an 8l-minute harangue to the
Fascist parliament.
In essence, the duce’s speech was
a “whistling in the dark” perform
ance designed to whip up the Italian
jieuple’s lagging war spirit. His pre
scription for national morale:
"Learn to hate and to cease spread
ing silly stories and gossip.”
Reading extracts from Churchill’!
speech warning that Italy would be
placed under “prolonged, scientific
and shattering air attacks,” Musso
lim said the English leader hoped
to undermine the Italian people’s re
sistance. He promised that Germany
would reinforce Italy with “powerful
contributions” a.d said “the joint
Italian-German defenses will give
the raiders a hot reception.”
Il Duce revealed that Italy had
lost 162 warships and more than
400,000 soldiers, sailors and airmen in
the 30 months of war.
Headaches for Hitler
Russian strategists concentrated
doggedly on the task of rolling out
the twin bulges at Rzhev and Vyaz
ma on the far-flung line from Lenin
grad to Stalingrad as the Red’s spec
tacular offensive continued to push
the Nazis back and threaten the en
tire structure of their winter lines.
Hitler well knew the danger poised
by the Russian thrusts at Rzhev. If
this key point were taken, his troops
in the Leningrad sector to the north
would be in peril. And should these
forces be trapped or forced to retire
to avoid entrapment, then Finland
would be left high and dry to make
such terms as she could with the
victorious Russ.
But Hitler’s headaches were not
confined to the Rzhev areas. At
Stalingrad the Reds captured a stra
tegic hilltop southwest of the city
that had dominated the approaches
from this direction and had been
used for weeks by the Germans for
artillery and observation posts.
Southward in the Caucasus, the
Nazis faced the threat of disaster,
for the steadily mounting strength
of the Russ placed his control of oil,
wheat and coal lands in jeopardy.
Make 725 M. P. H.

The war had long before inter
vened to cancel the International
Livestock Exposition, but in outdoor
pens in Chicago’s stockyards, 6,349
farm animals from 19 states and
two Canadian provinces competed
for prizes in the Chicago Market Fat
Stock show—an exhibition organized
to bridge over the period until the
International could be held again.
It was a one-way ride for the
barnyard champions, for war-time
transportation regulations decreed
that the steers, hogs and sheep must
be moved to the slaughter-house aft
er the show. Gone for the duration
was the traditional pageantry at
tending the exposition since the In

over by the army last June.
