PAGE EIGHT ' .(A«X.y COURIER NEWS Why Pacific Maneuvers Arc Important Navy Playing More Serious War Game Than Appears On Surface By THOMAS M. JOHNSON XKA Service .Military «'ri(cr A smoke screen <ieme \villi que.s- 'lion marks hangs low over th United States Fleet as it steams forth upon Problem 21. There are 130 .ships. 500 aircraft, 43,000 officers and men njioti "the ocean that Is called Pacific." m- eageit In the lea-si pacific and most practical, war game we ever undertook in peace. For the visibility o! the future isn't good just now. and at several points, clouds gather. A new one looms'just off Aluskn, our weak defensive Hunk, our "Hussian frontier." Come tlilintjs that wfthin bomber range of our new senplnne and .submarine base at Unutaskn, In the Aleutians, is being prepared a new base for Keel submarines—or German—or both. In the Russian Kninniuiorsky Islands gather Nazi submarine officers as guests of the Soviet Pacific Pled—which is mostly submarines. U-boats using installations now 'existing there, could operate the year round against allied shipping in the Pacific, and so they could from Whale Bay. southwest of Vladivostok, where unconfirmed reports say the snmc thing goes on. The Philippines are 2000 miles south, but Japanese fish and oil supply lines are well wltliln reach. Which may be n hint !o Japan i:ol to think of fighting Russia, or even to join Russia and Germany and Italy In that Totalitarian alliance Admiral Stark lias told Congress our navy must take into calculations. JAPANESE MYSTERY •Japan herself adds another Pacific cloud, to screen her doings In the Caroline, Mariana and Marshal' Islands that muffle Amer4- Guani. These islands she administers under League of Nation? mandate consented to by Wllsoslan Idealism. She must report yearly o- her administration—which is' noi supposed to include fortification. This year's report omits the usual . denial that she is fortifying. Ja'ran allows no American to come ashore The American Gibraltar of th Pacific remains Hawaii, but, there too broods a' smoke screen Hot merely from the celebrated volcanoes.
