April .i. ,ui>,. -France's coloniiil army in Indo-chlna, reptese:itin« the .strangest military torw of any W the Wcsicrn ixnvers in tilt! far has iKilwl its .sirciigili, repulsing in maneuvers au "hivasioi" ol "nif-niy" forces in .the jiia«le ami between Cambodia and CoeV in-C'lifna. The invasion constituted Uii 5 year's \vai- game, during which about 12,01)0 men, 800 horses- iii quantities ol ihe latest type uf •/equipment were pui 10 a tcsi. Although the French army In IiKlo-C'liinn is said 10 numa>:i more Ihan so.U'M men al pre.sen only a comparatively small part of this force tool; part in the exercises, singed in the aveii bomulln" the Ciulf of Siam, . As many of the troops participating in the maneuvers were reservists called to the colors since the outbreak of war in Europe, special importance was attached to the test by the French goncml staff. .Japanese Observer Present A Japanese military observer, Col. Niluilra. was present al ilia exercises for the first, time in history. Two high oilicers of Die British Malaya command, stationed in Singapore, Brigadier A. C. M. Paris, who commands the Indian troops, nnd Lleul.-Col. J. Dallas- Edye of Ihe Jloya! Artillery, represented Ihe British army, Cien ^ Pou Kiai-jen represented tilt Chi- y.nose army, Major van Veen ihc Netherlands army and Major Tchni prnlhib Sena Ihe Thai (Siamese) army. North forces under Ihc command of Gen. de BoLsbossel went on the defensive when Ihe South, commanded by Gen. Gouachon] swept in from the .sea near Halian, Kampot and lie-am toivara Phron-I'cnh, capital of the Khmer country, seeking to break communications between Camoortia ana Cochin-china. Kampot is nearly 100 miles from the capital, on the Gulf of Siam nnd is used generally only bv native shipping, since il U not accessible lo ordinary ocean-going vessels. The attacking force was presumed to have established <i base at. a nearby island. French aircraft carried oul reconnaissance liights, located troop dispositions and bombarded two dis- iricts held by (he "enemy." By the end ol the maneuvers, (he North had established a decisive advantage and after a fierce "battle" in difficult country Ihe North drove, the "enemy" in headlong retreat back to the sea. Admiral Also Walcltes During Die final stages, Gen. Catroux, Governor - General o French Imto-China in the absence of M. Jules Brevie, Gen. Marlin commander of the Imlo-chlna forces, and Admiral Decoux, the . French naval coimniiiirler-ui-chief in the Par East, watched the maneuvers from general headquarters. Gen. Catroux inspected the troops on two fronts and commented favorably on (heir training. Both attacking and defensive forces found the terrain extremely difficult. There are few proper roads nnd normal facilities for feeding and .supplying munitions to a considerable force of trooas. The army health corps carried out- experiments with a new ty;i2 of filter in an effort lo solve the problem of water supply. jp. The maneuvers proved die value ' ol automatic weapons in this type territory. Small detachments of North troops, equipped with m.i- chine guitf. were able to hold positions for u comparatively tony lime against compact superior "enemy" formations, and were able, eventually, to rcpuke the invasion. Natural Camouflage Used Gen. de Boisboisscl told a correspondent of [./Opinion iSaigonl Hint a machine gun well located and nilcquntcly camouflaged constituted a defense weapon of exceptional efficiency \vilh considerable range He pointed out that in the Cambodian country, tropical vegetation provides a perfect screen ard three battalions of Iroops can hold territory which, situated less favorably, would make necessary' the use of • many more Iroops. ', Exercises were necessarily severe because of lack of facilities usually available in peacetime. The forces "lived on the country" nnd displayed willingness and ability lo adjust themselves to difficult cir- , aimstauccs, it was said. i Oeii. Martin emphasized the necessity of improving trnnspovta- tion facilities lo permit swift mobilization and concentration of troops, "because It Is not sufficient merely to have a large number of • well-trained troops." Lack of roads i and mobile equipment forced Ihe i army lo use buffalo carls in many i areas, while mosl of Ihc Iroops ) were forced to hike. [ Despite this handicap, Gen. j Martin pointed out that it was j proved possible to move to the i ^,scene of operations within 48 K/hours all forces needed to protect (he country. Not a single serious accident occurred, he added. Rend Courier News want ads. Uing blackout of the sun cm April 7. m , will be bt-si .seen by ihe u. S.

By lilKiH J. I'RliETT 1'aeilie Dlrcelor, Aiurriean Mrfror Society Rare spectacle in the daylime sky will be seen April 7 throughout mosl of N 7 orth America when the sun stages a blackout known to science as the annular eclipse. This solar phenomenon will lx- best seen in a strip of land about 100 miles wide extending entirely across the continent. Here the maximum phase will present a narrow ring of light around the moon's shadow. The term "annular" comes from the Latin "nnimlus," meaning; "ring." A year a»o there was an annular eclipse observed in Arctic regions, but there will not be another blackout of this kind in the U. S. until 1.19-1. At the lime of the eclipse the. moon will be at about its greatest distance from the earth. Its shadow will appear too small lo entirely cover the sun's disk, so totality will occur nowhere. GUI,I' STATICS TO SKI-: KING KCIJVSE BUST Central line of the /one where the annular phase may be scon comes very near the following localities: Chihuahua, M«c., a spot midway between Austin and Houston, Tex.. New Orleans, Biloxi. Miss., /NKULA.R SCLIPSE TOTAL ECLIPSE Uccause moon's ilisl.ince from earili varies by 30,000 miles during a mouth, total eclipses of the sun do not always occur \vlicn moon gels between sun and earth. Man al X will see rhi£ around SIHI ilurinjr annular cclijisc. but wnulii sec fnlal if moon were closer lo earth. Tallahassee and Jacksonville. Fin. Along this line the ring phase will last from C to 7'i minutes. varying with the locality. At the middle of Ihis interval Ihe ,|ng will be of equal width all aiiumd. From places within upproxi- mnU-ljf 80 mlle.s luith north ami south- of this centrnI line the eclipse will appear annular, but ihe ring will al no lime Ije perfectly symmetrical, u win become more lopsided Ihe farther tin- observer is located from Hie line. Immediately outside the annular zone the maximum phase ivlll show n thin crescent of light. A.s the distance from this cnue In-, the percentage of Ihe suns eclipsed diameter will decrease. Al Minneapolis il will be SB per cenl; al Jiuieau, Alaska, only six per c-eiil. Amateurs phologi'aphing this eclipse wllh ordinary cameras will lincl very slow Him, small slojjs. and the shortest possible exposures will brins; best results. II Ihe camera is allowed to sland undisturbed, and the sun Is "shot" every five or 10 minutes, n series of images on one picture niny he obtained. Simplest, method for viewing the phenomenon is the use of smoked glass or photographic negatives. Excellent views may be obtained through field glasses, the front tenses of which should be properly darkened. '"*Scout News Boys • Girls Uomplrfc Plans Knr Skating Party.
