He mentioned not only Burma but Malaya and,the Netherlands East Indies. He pointed out that the Japanese lines through these countries are strong but said he hoped "we may penetrate them with reasonable rapidity because we shall be able to establish and "maintain-regional air superiority." In-any event, the invasion of iBurma-'must be preceded by amphibious operations to clean the ! Japs= at least out of the Andaman islands, which lie athwart the Gul£ of Martaban and the great port oE Rangoon at the mouth of the "Road to'Mandalay." The Andamans presumably are strongly held. Over in.the Southwest Pacific the fighting on Bougainville island represents one of the preliminaries to the big, drive. There the Japs are battling without much hope to save their key base of Rabaul to the northi With Rabaul gone the Allies will be masters of that great area, and the-way will be opened for the broader operations by General MacArthur and' Admiral Nimitz. This will represent the right : claw of the pincers. By Armistice Day next year the Allied- fortunes should be bright.

The meeting was called yesterday by Association President R. A. Young, Sr., to discuss a suggestion by Fuels Administrator Ickes that the operators carry their demand for increased coal prices directly to the office of price administration (OPA,). Ickes indicated that he would support their plea. Association officials said last week the mines would be in recess until Ickes answered their demands for a price boost to compensate for the $1.50 a .day wage increase granted the miners under the new ' contract agreement. About 5,000 miners have been idle, two weeks. Meantime, the back- to- work movement continued slowly in scattered • sections of the field. Bill Roberts, manager of the Ruby Glow mine in the Clarksville Field, reporteded last night that some 150 miners would go back to work in the mine tomorrow "if we can get the mine in shape."

(To Be i Missing Pilot Demands Boots on Return By EGGY RHODES United Press Staff Correspondent New York, Nov. 11 —UP— When apt. Charles Sullivan of Eureka, 111., returned to his base after surviving two crashes and wandering for a month in the jungles of New uinea, he found his buddies had figured he was dead, divided up his kit and that one pal had gone back lo America with his best boots. ;Sullivan crashed in the heart of 'Japanese jungle on Wewak. His plane'was completely demolished but he escaped, without a scratch. After wandering through the difficult mountain country for several hours he ran into a group of natives who appeared friendly and offered to guide him. That night, however, another native joined the parly who was hoslile and inciled the natives against him. Sullivan watched them wide-eyed as they built a huge bonfire —then invited him to lie down and go to sleep. Sullivan gently but firmly declined and later explained, "I probably wouldn't have slept very well. They were rattling too many knives." The natives then moved in or Sullivan and got him cornered in a circular hut. The captain tried to explain that if they made stew of him American planes would be back with lots of bang-bang and he brandished his gun furiously. The natives stared silently — rushed al him. One grabbed the fliers wrisls and another grappled with him. Sullivan fired two shots and Iwo men fell. In the wild confusion thai followed the Yank broke loose and -nadc for Ihe jungle. All night long ic crouched in the lall grass, lis- lening to the savage wail of the lativcs. Al daybreak, he headed toward the southwest and for more lhan 16 days he wandered through the dense jungles. At last he reached an Australian base where he borrowed a small plane and took off for home. For the second time, however, his ship crashed and he was forced lo make his way to another air field and thumb a ride in a transport. The boys were startled when Ihey saw the captain march in. They had thought he was gone for good. When he began looking for his clothes and flying kit, their faces were pretty red as they broke the news to him as easily as they could. When Sullivan stopped throwing things, he stormed into the post- office and sent a cable to the pal who had gone lo America with his shoes. His wire read— ••Bring back those boots, you vulture."
