The likelihood of the Japanese grand fleet coming out to fight in the near future is regarded on a puie tactical basis as extremely remote. That fleet now is greatly outnumbered and the Japanese know it. So long as it remains intact, it comnels the Americans to % guard with similar fleets many points in the Pacific. A German battleship and a cou-, pie of cruisers compel the British fleet to patrol vast stretches of sea. Once the little Nazi fleet is destroyed, Great Britain's heavy fleet could relax or even move to the Pacific. So it would be with us if the Japanese came out to fight now and took the licking it surely would in a the mooring line in two.

Since then she has steadily aimed to make herself the dominant figure of Asia, employing militaristic aggression with increasing freo^xency. Now we are in process of shoving her back where she be- | (longs. Word that the Oriental war-mill is beginning to grind at high speed is of the greatest importance. Dispatch is essential, lor China is dangerously weak in her resources — virtually without military equipment, if we would be exact. She must be rearmed so that she may fling her great manpower against the Jap armies.. That means reopening routes into China so that Allied supplies can reach her — Burma, the back door, for one. One wonders whether the Cairo conference got any further than these sweeping fundamentals. Perhaps not, for this is the time for action and not for talk ol distant details affecting a brave new world which hasn't yet been created. Various European reports have it hat the three great men of the Cairo conference have now proceeded to Teheran, the Persian capital, which is the aerial gateway to Russia, to meet with Marshal Stalin in another conclave that will consider the other half of our global war — the European con- 3iet. If this is so, one would expect that there the idea will prevail of sticking largely to the fundamental operations necessary to achieve a quick victory over the Hitlerites. What will this involve? I should say, that most certainly it will polish off the question of opening up that second front in France at the earliest possible moment. Here, as in the case of China, speed is the password to early victory. Naturally there are many conjectures as to what the big four will talk about..One is the the west- tern trio — Roosevelt, Stalin and Churchill — will.give the German people a ..definition of what is meant by the unconditional surrender which the Allies demand. Some think that the German pub__ - lie also may be called on to throw TiGMVMMf Hitler and his gang out. ' **^ ^* Certainly some of the immediate problems of handling a post-war Germany would seem bound to come up. For instance, you've got to have very definite ideas about what you're going to do the day that the Reich capitulates. When all's said and done, to my mind the biggest thing which can come out of this conference will be solidarity of general viewpoint among Stalin, hoosevelt and Churchill -r- the big three. There are bound to be differences of c-pinion regarding some details, and we should be foolish not to expect this. If we can get unity of purpose, however, in this first conference of its kind ever to be attended by the powerful figure of Stalin, then it will have been a vast succe'ss.

These have been taking place recently and can be expected to continue. All in all, the coming campaign whether centered in the Indies the Kuriles or the Central Pacific is in many respects island hop ping whether we like it or not.

The passengers expect to leave the ship Thursday. Pasteurized Buttermilk When the Japs invaded the Philippines. Laurel was a member of the Island's supreme court. From that time on his spirit for "cooperation" with Japan's new order has been perfect. A few months ago, it was reported by radio that a "fantical" Filipino had taken a pot shot at the illustrious Quisling while he was playing golf on a suburban Manila course. Although the assassin was said to have made a holc-in-onc shot, the man who \yas to bccoiTjc the Japs' first "president" of the "independent" Philip-. pines apparently was not seriously i wounded. Just what subterfuges the Japs have used to enlist the services of a man of 52-year-old Laurel's acli- brc isn't known hero but the fast that they have been able to do }t at all Demonstrates clearly that they arc exerting every effort to bring the 17,000,000 Flipinos under their thumbs in the "new Pacific order." What they arc struggling for now is to create a feeling among the Filipinos that "we arc doing finp, General MacArthur, and we don't care if you never come back." Opposing this propaganda pridden Japanese puppet rule are 125,000 really free Filipinos here and in Hawaii (many of them in the U.

Army Ordnance and Old King Cotton have prepared another knockout surprise for the Axis. Col, Keith F. Adamson, commanding Southwestern Proving Ground, said today .that an all-cotton belt, augmenting the metallic link belt, had been developed for machine guns that will be used in mowing down Nips and and Nazis. The new belt has great tensile strength and flexibility, is compact, easy" to" load and easy to' salvage, insures cleaner ammunition, and saves thousands of pounds of critical steel and countless man-hours in!,.production schedules. Col. Adamson explained that an Ordnance machine gun belt is a conveyor belt for carrying the cartridge to a point in the interior of a machine gun. It must be tough and rugged because of the nature of the gun itself. A steel.pawl advances the belt by cqntracUng|.and pushing one loade'd pocket'fbrwiifd ijt.a time. The rate varies irom 500 t£ -1J200 r-oupds; a minute:*Tlie ..belt also undergoea ; ' severe, Btr'a;iji-iri'.tthe loading operation.!b e ; .c7a'U s.e-^the ^pockets are woven undersize and the cartridge is forced in. The belt must also stand up under all kinds of weather conditions, and this calls for careful chemical treatment. The cotton used must be of good .strength and elasticity, and yet abundant enough in supply to take care of the huge program involved. All of the yarn is dyed olive drab for camouflage purposes, with the exception of four black threads which foinn a stripe on alternating pockets for the purpose of pocket identification and quicker counting. When the manufacturing process is completed, rolls of belting are passed through a pocket inspection machine .This machine insets a gauge at the rate of 1,000 strokes a minute in each pocket to see that it is open, properly woven ,and correct for size. The belts are then cut to proper lengths and each 25th pocket is stamped with the number of rounds so that the gunner always knows .the number of cartridges left in the belt. The caliber .50 belt has a new development, making possible continuous firing. A plastic is applied to the ends which arc then cut in such a manner that the belts can be coupled or hinged together by means of a cartridge. This means that two or more belts can be joined together and ammunition boxes of various sizes used in packing without inconvenience. This interlocking end also makes possible a dispersable bell for aircraft use, several short lengths being coupled together. In addition to careful inspection all along the production line,' many tests are necessary .to insure that the belts will function properly in Service.. Perhaps the severest test consists of immersing the belt in water for 12 hours, loading it wet, and then drying it out before firing. If tiie belt still retains its pocket grip, it is fool-proof.
