Lata, fuScTipUoni Fabl b Adno Comment in Brief EX-KAISER WILHELM died Wednesday at a time when his grandiose scheme of German conquest of 1914-1S is being repeated on an even bigger and grander scale, and, thus far. with no signs of the failure that ended the kaiser's ambitions. What the kaiser thought of Adolf Hitlers Nazi regime has been indicated in reports he had said it was "a step In the right direction" when Hitler took over in 1933. Human nature being what it is, it is very likely the for mer kaiser witnessed the triumph of German arms in the past two years with considerable satisfaction. If the new German conquest eventually goes the way of 1918, the kaiser won't be here to witness the wreck. One great factor in the defeat of the kaiser's machine In 1918 was the rugged, stubborn determination of the British, whose morale held then in the face of disappoint ments and terrific punishment In April, 1917. the British were declared by Germany to have been "beaten to their knees" by the German U-boat campaign. Yet they fought on to victory. As an indication of British morale at this even more dangerous time, there is the demand in England today for strong action in dealing with the Vichy French in the serious problem of Syria. The Associated Press states the British "press and public alike have demanded that Brit ain act boldly and stop placating Vichy." Despite the seriousness of a war with France, their former ally, the British are evidently ready to take the step if circumstances make it advisable. There is talk of "gasless Sundays" in the east because of the possibility of petroleum shortage there after July 1. Experts in their reports to the government have said there Is no national oil shortage, but that transportation prob lems will make it increasingly difficult to meet the gaso line needs of the heavy population and the concentrated defense industries of the east As time goes on, there may be another good reason for being thankful we live in the west. Young orators of Southern Oregon will speak on "Americanism, the Protector of Liberty" in the Elks ora torical contest at the Elks lodge Thursday evening at 9 p.m. The Klamath county contest, held two weeks ago, proved both interesting and inspiring. This time, repre sentatives from Jackson and Josephine counties as well as Klamath will compete. The event is open to the public and will be worth attending. 76 FI PEIITS INDICATE SPRING Spring was definitely Includ ed in the May report presented to the city council Monday night by Fire Chief Keith K. Ambrose who reported 78 "clean-up" fire permits issued during that period. Four hazards were re moved in May, and 57 inspec tions made. There were 12 alarms answered, two of which were false.

LOCKHEED EXPERT RUTH An employment agent of the Lockheed Aircraft company of Los Angeles will be in Klamath Falls during the week of June 9 to interview members ot the local aircraft sheet metal class, the Oregon State Employment service said Tuesday. Lockheed, in the midst of con stantly increasing defense work, has taken a large number of graduates of similar schools throughout the west. Meanwhile 40 students con tinued their study at the day and night classes in Klamath Union high quarters ax additional equipment continued to come in.

REAL ESTATE DEAL WEST CHESTER, Pa. iJP Attending a public auction out of curiosity, a tailor thought it was time to act when there were no bids on a three-story building. He started the ball rolling with $10,000 and that turned out to be the only bid. "It was Just a Joke," he ex plained afterward. "I thought the building would fetch sev eral times $10,000 and I only wanted lo get the bidding start ed. I don'l want the building and I don't have the money to pay for it." A trust company agreed to another sale but the tailor will be held liable for the difference if the property brings Jess than $10,000. Poor old King Solomon! 1000 wives, no Wieland'i Extra Palel News WASHINGTON. June 4 Vast war programs often run off into fragmentary absurdities, but rarely into as intricate a labyrinth as the agriculture de partment's hog buying for Brit- Our government is paying high prices for pork products to ship to Britain and getting them from Canada. The Cana dians have a surplus ot hogs and are selling not lending or leasing these to the British for pounds sterling. The United States on the other hand is buy ing at relatively higher prices and lending or leasing to Lon don. Thus, '"madian hog grow ers have been able to get more for their hogs by sending to the United States to give to Britain, rather than selling directly to their mother country. First four months of this year Canada exported 10.450 hogs to the United States, compared with only 18 head the same four months last year. The Canadians do not like this, are trying to stop it. The Canadian bacon board first promised a dollar extra per 100 pounds to its growers on sales to Britain. This was done in May. but failed to prove suffi cient inducement. Now a licens ing system is being imposed on packers who want to ship to the United States. To top it off. the British are selling the pork they get from us and using the money for gen eral purposes. The way this works, the United States federal marketing administration buys the pork with the lend-lease money and ships it to Britain on credit. Presumably this gov ernment will be paid back in the same way it is repaid all lease-lend advances, sometime in the future. INVASION DOUBTED Hitler is always doing the un expected, but an invasion o( England before September is just too unexpected to be con sidered possible. The nights now last only five hours or less at the channel and fogs cannot be counted upon to cover any in vasion effort before early fall. It would seem logical for Hit ler to try to clean up the east ern Mediterranean and then Gibraltar before trying invasion in September. ICKE3' JOB The president's designation of Interior Secretary Ickes as di rector of the oil industry was a move which lckes long had sought before congressional com mittees, by legislation and other wise. Mr. Roosevelt sanctioned it at long last, presumably to implement his defense action speech. The only new justification for government seizure of the reins of one of the largest industries apparently is that the govern ; ment had recently seized coast , wise oil tankers for British aid and therefore had itself caused a transportation shortage, j Resistance from the industry is likely to remain as anony j mous as the first comment from ithe manager who said he was ! "knocked speechless." The move has clearly hit a demoralized industry. Ickes. of course. Is the man least likely to succeed in co ordinating an industry whose leaders he has always fought bitterly. How much unity and cooperation his choice will pro mote is therefore a matter of in tense speculation here, all on the obvious side. The first result is likely to be that the America first committee can raise a few at tm - .aasssssr LAJ1 UAI B , 1 A s Ft A V PH I FIRST TOP HIT H .

NEXT BLOW The itrilish have picked up some information indicating what they may expect next. Benito and Adolf, they hear, planned intensification of the direct land attack on Egypt and a simultaneous strike for Cyprus and Syria. To meet It, the British may have to destroy the Mosul pipe line and oil wells and invade Syria, regardless of Vichy. Odds arc heavily against them, but the strongest possible resistance is necessary in fur therance of their general war policy. Their authorities have led ours to believe they will not get out ot the eastern Mediter ranean one minute before they are forced out. SHORTAGE SEEN Letdown in bombing attacks on Britain during the 12-day at tack on Crete has made the British wonder whether Hitler has as many planes as claimed. No other explanation for the sudden cessation of bombing is available except the obvious in dication that Hitler had insuffi cient fuel, pilots or ships to fight actively on two fronts at tlie same time. TWO SPRAGUE RIVER MILLS EYED BY AFL The Lumber and Sawmill Workers union (AFL) this week will make demands for union recognition in the two Sprague River lumber firms. Organizer Joe Boyd said Tuesday. The union is prepared to prove their claim to a majority at both ; the Crater Lake Box and Lum ' ber company and the lloseley 'Logging company, Boyd stated. Employes ot both firms have I been working under an agree j ment recognizing the Industrial I Employes union as their bargain I inc. agent until last week when IEU headquarters announced the disbanding of their organ ization throughout the entire northwest. At the time of dis bandment IEU members were urged to Join the AFL. Meanwhile in three other for- imer IEU mills the AFL was claiming majority and placing charters. The three, all in the Rogue River valley, were the Medford corporation, employing approximately 400 men; the In gram Lumber company at Glen dale, Ore., and the Timber Pro ducts company of Medford. Delegates from the three mill groups will attend a meeting of the Klamath District council here next Sunday, Boyd said. LaPointe's, local Red Cross shoe dealers, have just received word that they won third prize m a national window contest I sponsored by the United States j Shoe corporation, manufacturers 'of Rod Cross shoes. According to Curt Lion and Alfred Gray , of the local store, there were about 1600 entries in the contest. I which was held during national Red Cross Shoe week, April 21 to 26. The judging was done by pho tograph and was based on orig inality and interesting ideas. Grover Litton of LaPointe's shoe department, and Mary Hutchin son, in charge of window dis plays at the store, trimmed the : prize winning window.
