Flour Is NOT Plentiful Here Bakers Stocked for Some Weeks, Some Grocers Al- ready Running Low Some local grocers nre already feeling the shortage of HOIK' while bakers and othci1..... chants report a supply for several weeks of flour on hand at the present time. Bui all agree that unless' some changes are made, re'ady- bnkod bread and flour for bak- ing bread at home will soon be scarce locally. Copeland Baking company re- ports that some flour is on hand for the time but is con- fident that the present supply will not last long unless addition- al flour can be added. In other words, the outlook is not rosy. Jack Johnson of Johnson's Bak- ery says that his supply won't last long and knows that his pur- chases of flour will be cut down nt least 25 percent and maybe more. Ho thinks that.something will be done before the present supply of flour is completely de- pleted. The Johnson Bakery has pos- sibly enough flour ID operate six weeks. Mrs. Katie L. Knott declined to make a statement as to her flour stock at Knoll's Bakery. How- ever, she knew that 'her pur- chases will be cut 25 percent. The M. and P. store manager reports that a good stoc': of four is on hand and thinks that: the supply should last several weeks. He says that there has not bee.i heavy buying of flour, but adds that his store can take care of demands for a while. Frank Dicus, owner of Dicus Market, says that he has enough flour to last several weeks.

Uncle Sam will just toss some German family out of its home, and the American family. will move into a clean, well- furnished .domicile.

He said that if, in 1941, Japan could have taken any other way than war "as an independent cour.try I would have taken it." He repeated Japan's favorite pro- paganda, faith "in an Asiatic co- prosperity sphere, indicating clearly that he would rest a con- siderable part cf his defense on the "righteousness" of Japan's war.

Not Invasion, As He Saw It Tojo, writing his answers to 10 questions in clear, bold charac- ters, "We did not want to invade any oriental, countries. I thought this wns a war to emancipate oriental countries from foreign influences and enjoy .a coprosperity sphere of freedom and equality. But during the war, in order to- complete it; we could not refrain from using natural resources (of the occupied areas) and imposing several restrictions on the" peo- ple's rights." He said these restrictions were to continue only during the war, after which the oriental countries were to live on "a principle of but the war ended dif- ferently and "it is regrettable that this idea has taken a differ- ent shape."

Military Parade Brief Stalin exhorted the Russian armed forces to remain strong and increase their effectiveness by lessons learned from the war "on the basis of development of science and but it was noted that the traditional military parade before Lenin's tomb in the Red square was cut a half hour from the regular two-hour review. "Now our armed forces are faced with a task of no less im- to guard tho peace which was won and the constructive labor of the Soviet people, to be the reliable bul- wark of the interest of the Soviet union. "The successful accomplish- ment of this honorable task is possible only on condition of further growth of military cult- ure and military skill of the of- ficers and men 'of our army, our navy and our aviation." Stalin urged Russian workers to reach and even exceed the goals set in the nation's new five- year R.emember Lenin "Developing peaceful socialist construction." Stalin's order de- clared, "we should not forget for a minute the intrigues of inter- national reaction, which is hatch- ing plans of a new war.

"The armed fdrces of the Soviet union must daily improve their military art on the basis of ex- perience of war, on the basis of the progress of military science and technique.

The proposal advanced by Sec- retary- of State Byrnes at the Paris conference met generally favorable reaction, although Sen- ator Wheeler (D-Mont) said he d o u b t'e d substantial American, fdrces can be kept in Germany for 25 years. he told a reporter, "if we can relieve Russia's fears of aggression on the part of Ger- many 10 the extent that the So- viets will their troops and permit independent govern- ments to be set up in the Baltic und Bajk.in states, it would a tremendous lot for world peace."

May 1. Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav M. Molotov and U. S. Secretary of State Byrnes clashed in the ques- tion of the future allied control of Italy today as the foreign minis- ters' council turned thumbs down on Austria's plea for return of the southern Tyrol by Italy. A qualified conference source said the Soviet minister sharply opposed Byrnes' proposal for a single general commission to su- pervise the carrying out of the llalian treaty provisions on tha ground that it would be an in- fringement of Italian sovereignty. Byrnes was said to have re- ported it was no more of an in- fringement than the treaty itself. Molotov reversed the Soviet policy followed at last Septem- ber's council meeting at which the Russians voted with their col- leagues to set up only military control commissions. At this morning's session, over which he presided, Molotov came out in favor of no commission at all. The ministers were discussing the last of 11 points of disagree- ment over the Italian treaty. The ministers decided to hold their next meeting tomorrow morning and to cancel a sched- uled session this afternoon. Their deputies will meet this afternoon to set the agenda. A conference source said both sessions tomorrow probably would be devoted to attempts to clear up minor points of differ- ence on the Italian treaty.
