One question unanswered by the conference is what 'disposition is to be made of the hundred's of Pacific 'Islands which the Japanese occupied during the first world war, received-under League of Nations mandate following the war and fintilly closed lo the world and fortified in preparation for the present conflict. Those islands are, principally, the Marshall, Caroline and Marianna groups. They are slated for American conguest in the offensive started by the Pacific force with the assault on the Gilbert islands only last month: The Gilberts are British islands. But the Japanese mandated group, which includes the enemy naval base of Truk in the Carolines, belonged to Germany before the Japanese .took them over, and when the Japanese arc driven out they will belong to nobody. Some American naval men arc known to feel that the United States should- acquire bases in these is : lands for permanent outposts —• bases which would place American sea and airpower in position lo make sure that Japan never again can start a war with the enormous strategic advantages sjie possessed at the start of this one? On the olher hand, some consideration has been given in high quarters to putting the islands under international control with all the United Nations to have a legal voice in their management and use and with military and naval bases to be set up as international control agencies think best.

Simultaneously with the rushing of enemy reinforcements to the Adriatic front, the Na/i command threw fresh units into the Fifth Anny front at the western end of the line. It was disclosed the 34lh American Infantry Division is-with the Fifth Army of Lt. Gen. Mark \V. Clark. United Stales troops who before dawn yesterday beat back, two determined enemy counterattacks in the hilly country guarding the mountain block lo the main road to Rome took prisoners from the German 44th Infantry Division. That division is a new unit in Italy, which like many others in the Mediterranean theater, had been reconstituted after being dcslroyed at Stalingrad. The 44lh is the eleventh German division now known lo be in action in Italy a total of approximately Hio.OOO men. The new division includes a high percentage of Auslrians. The U. S. 34th Infantry Division is a veteran outfit which gained fames by the spectacular capture of Hill 6(19 in the Tunisian campaign. It is the fourth American division which belated official announcements have disclosed as operatin in Italy. The others are the 34th, 45th and lird. The heaviest of the two pro-dawn G e r m a n counterattacks was launched at the Fiiigano area, four miles north of Venafor. It was repulsed completely. The other thrust was to the southwest, in the vicinity of Mount Camino, southwest of Mignano which controls the road to Cassino, In general, thu repulse of the counterattacks allowed the Fifth Army to consolidate its posilions east of the Rome road. Along other Fifth Army sectors there was lively patrolling usually a prelude to heavier action. American Flying Fortresses struck yesterday for the second time at the E'iat ball bearing works at Turin in Northern Italy. Heavy forces of the big daylight bombers went over the target in two svaves 45 minutes apart, covered the plant with destructive bomb bursts, and scored hits besides on fhu nearby Fiat motor factory and the railway yards. Escorting Lightnings chased off eight to 12 Nazi fighters in the first wave, while 14 gunners in the second wave shot down two German planes. During this attack another formation of Fortresses blasted the_ nearby Villanova airfield with a' shower of bombs on the main hangars and parked aircraft, preventing more fighters from getting in the air to interfere with the Turin Attack. The Turin factory, the third most important of its kind in Hitler's control, was reported to have been made inoperative by a large-scale raid Nov. 8 but had been repaired tince. Wave after wave of American Mitchells also hit German troop concentrations at San Ambrogio near Rocca San Giovnni, laying down patterns over the flashes that marked the sites of German artillery batteries. Warhawks intensively raked enemy troop movements south from Chieti which had begun under cloud cover, in an effort to interrupt the German effort to reinforce their caving front, and destroyed at least 16 vehicles. Airacobras and" 'Spitfires destroyed four more vehlics in expeditions across the Adriatic to Albanian coastal mods, .Allied night bombers raided the Ponassieve railway yards near Florence. Approximately 50 German fighter-bombers attacked the Eight Army in three formations yesterday. In all, three enemy planes were shot down yesterday, while every Alied plane returned from its mission. A navy communique said American motor torpedo boats defending Bastia, Corsica, clashed with German "E" boats Monday night, damaging one and probably damaging others. Marines Toss Grenades Back at Japanese By WILLIAM HIPPLE With U. S. marines on Tarawa, Nov. 23(Delayedl— (/P)—The United States Marines, always noted for their bravery in the face ol enemy fire, probably never distinguished themsejves with such mass heroism as in the asault on Tarawa. . For two days, every man reaching thei beach of this atoll in the Gilbert Islands had come through the hail of enemy gunfire. Yet they kept pushing straight in until the island was secured. This is what happened lo some ol them: Pfc. Edward Rendon, Harlingen, Tex., and Corp. Joe Bonnin, Eau Claire, Wise., in the first wave, immediately slashed through with a group of other men lo Ihe center of Betio island desiiile Japanese rvachinegun and mortar fire from all positions. They finally stopped in a shell riole with water up to their waists. The Japanese had them surrounded. For two and a half days, Ren don, Bonnin and others were pinned there. The enemy continutally tossed grenades into the hole. Sometimes the marines threw them back and fired their rifles. But there was so much confusion they couldn't tell which Were Japanese and which were Marine lines. Finally, another Marine crawled into their hole and guided them lo a marine position. Among others making the landings was Pfc. H. G. Ward, Fayetteville, Ark. -*»*•«* BURNS FATAL Camden, Dec. 2— (/P) — Burns suffered while burning leaves in the yard of his home near Louann caused the death of W. A. Smith, 65, in a Camden hospital yesterday. Planes With Guns in Nose Sink Jap Ships Somewhere in New Guinea, Dec 2 Iff 1 )— Low flying Mitchell medium bombers shooting 75mm projectiles from-their noses are knocking out enemy barges and shipping along the New Guinea north coast. Two days ago one of these flying cannons pumped shells into a heavy cargo ship off Wewak and blew it right-out of the water. :' (It was announced this week in Washington, that the army had installed the 75mm cannon in some of its B-25s operating in the south and southwest Pacific areas.) The heavily-gunned' planes have been .operating mostly in expcri mental stages for the past month between Sio and Saidor on the New Guinea coast, but newspaper correspondents have been unable to write about them for security reasons. Crews of these planes returning from their first mission expressed astonishment over their accomplishments. "I pumped one of those 75s into the biggest building in Saidor and the whole damn place just blew up," one crew member said. "We caught a barge off the coast and sank it with one shot," another filler said. Of course the amzaing thing is how the plane stays together after the terrific explosion of the 75. Not enough credit for this in - novation in air firepower can be given Lt. Gen, George C. Kenney, commander of Allied Air Forces in the Southwest Pacific. He also has been responsible for several other changes which have been made on American aircraft after they arrived here from the United Slates. hus bringing in . MacArthur'S Southwest Pacific command. The controversial issue of 'island hopping" to strike at Japan, to, which MacArthur is op : losed, was discussed thoroughly, a British source reported. The great conference brought together 201 British experts, mord than 100 Americans, and 20 Chi nese. Although the communique was confined purely to the Far East; when the overall picture of the conference is seen in retrospect it becomes increasingly clear .that while Churchill and Roosevelt doubtless laid plans for increasing the war upon Japan, they and their military and naval chiefs never lost sight of the German enemy. Besides the reported discussion of a new invasion of Europe and Balkan matters there were these '. other indications of the global nature of the talks: The active presence of .the American and British ambassadors to Moscow, W. Averell Harriman arid Sir Archibald Clark Kerr, could not escape notice in the restricted North African area. f Perhaps equally noteworthy was j the participation of Laurence A. l.Jjleinhardt, U. S. ambassador to urkey. Even , the carefully-cen- ored Cairo newspapers have car- ied freely Turkish reports that 'urkey virtually is in the United Nations camp, and either will join n the war or cede bases shortly, iritish Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, who conferred here after the Moscow parley with Turkish For- ign Minister Numan Menemen- mioglu, was an active latecomer to he conference. The conference was, as a representative of President Roosevelt described it, an "open secret." Thousands of heavily-armed sol- liers and barbed wire guarded the conference area which still can :e identified only as "in North Africa" — and newspaper correspondents were not allowed to see even one of the principles in the drama. Their only news came from four non- journalistic observers, news limited in the main to physical facts. President Roosevelt, adding still more to his astronomical total mileage of travel, came by air, Monday morning, Nov. 22, and was whisked off in a curtained limousine along a road lined with sol- diars who were ordered to turn their backs. By plane in the long hop from China came Generalissimo and Mrs. Chiang Kai-Shek, who acted as interpreter for her husband. Churchill came by sea arriving Sunday evening Nov. 21. The Chiangs arrived Sunday morning. It was the eighth meeting of President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchil, each one a conference speeding the prosecution of the war. Neither had met Chiang before. - ': The Uniof] Grove Home-Dernon- slratlori Club met «l the horne of, jArS.'F. V. Porlerfield on the 18th of November. The roll was called by our secretary.
