Traveling the Burma Road Expert Travels 18,000 Miles to Inspect Road Some competent military observers, taking note oj the new Japanese threat to the Burma Road, believe it has been provoked by the four-fold increase in freight sin ,- three Americans streamlined the highway. Here, for the first time, is a detailed story of the measures taken to tlo it. ' Back of the Chinese lines, deep in high, Asia, new hope rolls toward the beleaguered armies of Chiang Kai- Shek. It rides in American trucks, driven American fashion, over a highway run by Americans. The Burma Road is receiving a Yankee overhauling. :•. '•''' '.-..' •'. ; The transportation experts at work on the one remaining Chinese lifeline, are thankful today they have the job well under way. There has been a Japanese-voiced threat to attack the fiurma ftoad frorrl the south, "to put an end to large^scaW AmeHcan intervention in China." Stores tif lend- lease munitions, gasoline, and machinery rolling over the stream-lined highway will help head off such danger. The road 'today is a far cry from that of a year ago. Its transformation stems from n telephone call last spring—a call made by Hurry Hopkins, in the White House, to Daniel Arnstein, vacationing in Florida. "We're got a trucking problem," said Hopkins, "and need a man to Work it out. We thought you could suggest somebody." A day or two later Arnstein, head of a great New York transportation enterprise, stopped off in the capital. The "problem," he learned, was the Burma Road. He recommended a hard-boiled, self-reliant, former cab driver—himself. During the summer Arnstein and two fellow trucking executives, Harold Davis and Marco Hellman, flew to China for a close-up study of their assignment. They found chaotic conditions, reported, the straight facts to Chiang Kai-Shek; They also decided what should be done. This week, because of thoir efforts, Arnsteoin can report a 400 per cent increase in tonnage. To rejuvenate the Burma Road, the three experts did just what any careful business man would do in building an efficient trucking organization. PWlyow'«rver hear two eyewitnesses argue about a ball game they've both seen ... DIFFERENTLY? Your newspaper nearly always gets its facts right. It tells ycm who played, .where they played, who won, what the score was.'Newspaper men are TRAINED to get facts straight. But, being human, they're not infallible. When the "hometown" paper reports the game—win or lose—it reports it with a little home-town flavor, of course. But it DOESN'T CONCEAL THE FACTS. Now everybody with any brains at .all has OPINIONS. Editors, preachers, storekeepers and ditchdiggers "take sides." Sometimes, they agree, sometimes they disagree. In America we give every man the right to his own OPINIONS and the right to speak his mind about them. : We •V*D go further, over here, We give every man the right to "AGITATE" for his $ide—to preach, educate, inform and influence others by peaceful means. We let any man propose his own brand of religion, his own brand of politics, his own views about laws or behavior. We let competing merchants buy advertising space to state their offers and give their opinions about the wares each believes yqu should buy from HIM. We let the Red Cross or the U. S. 0. solicit support for its work--or let any other organization or cause voice its plea. Your newspaper—the one you are reading now—is a com- posits of many flavors. It tries to tell you the facts accurately —and usually succeeds. Jt tries to tell you what "both sides" of an argument are. Its news and editorial columns are the PAPER'S honest v\ew of what HAPPENED today and. yesterday and what it beeves MAY HAPPEN tomorrow.

NEA Servic* Correspondent What a Director thinks of Movies By GREGORY LA CAVA ( Motion picture director, who tp.ilny contributes » guest column to Paul Harrison's vncation. HOLLYWOOD — In n recently com- ileted picture, I had n character say, The United States is like n carpet, "he middle part is the warp and woof nd the rest of it is just fringe." I didn't fully realize the import of his statement until Inter when we ook the picture, "Unfinished Busness," to the hinter-lands for what s known as a sneak preview. I had ire-viewed pictures in nearby thoa- ors with an audience of professional review hounds, friends and relatives f thos'; engaged in the production f the picture, bnckslappors, agents nd well-wishers. On rare occasions bewildered couple who might be ailed Mr. and Mrs. America got in, To the People As an experiment, I decided to get way Crom the fringe and try the licture on the warp and woof. In so oing I rediscovered America for my?lf. We showed it at a theater where 'reviews are as rare as $2 bills. I was aware that the picture was ppearing for the first time in front he picture than the other kind, 'he customary preview cards were leithcr cluttered up with superlatives >r condemnations. Most responses vere yes or no. Fortunately, most of hem were yes—which is beside the point. The reaction set me to thinkjng ibout Mr. and Mrs. America, the 'faithfuls'* whose dimes and quarters enable a few of us to get paid morq than we're worth. It struck me all of a sudden that it might be an idea : or Hollywood generally to refresh ts jaded creatvei senses by. leaning over the back fences of the middle vest rather than against a New York 3ar ;that the corner drugstore in Sandusky, O., might be a bbetter conning tower for the observation of life .han a San Francisco night club. After all, movies del awith life and the human emotions. If you present your 'case in an entertaining manner, its reception will be al! you desire. The audience may not know how you arrived et entertainment value; they may not know how many French poodles a star possesses, but they'll darn soon tell you whether a star is doing her stuff. In my opinion, pictures should dca Isolcly with human emotions; not with the problems of a few isolated people, but with the simple emotions that affect the greatest number of people. Most of America, or the world for that matter, indulges in some form of work where the emotions have little opportunity to wander. I believe it's the function of Hollywood to provide this emotional outlet. No Documents, Plense If a man has been plowing aifeld nil day, I'm sure that he'll not select for his evening's entertainment a documentary film that has to do with travail of conquering the land. • The average human' is interested in very personal things rather than generalities. The story of an banadonecl baby, a love triangle or a cult murder will win closer reading in the newspapers than long dispatches about the present war. The world is composed of average people. I am happy to have met a few of them tmd I hope to meet more. respects wo have n beflor chanco here for a well balanced economy than they have In the old North State. We have more good soil and probably equal power resources (exclusive of hydro-electric). We are having a new edition of this pamphlet prepared-with slight revisions. We are'taking the emphasis off of defense industries and making the appeal more general. You Will be glad to know that we have received complimentary comments from a number of stales. I think they appreciate the factual approach. We arc building a more elaborate sales manttnl for use in key situations. The next lime you are here I wish you would talk with L. A. Henry, Director of the Planning Board, or *Dr. George C. Branner, State Geologist, concerning it. It gives me great'pleasure to return your compliment with the observation that Hope has fine prospects with a mayor like Albert Graves and an editor like you. Yours very truly, J. J. Harrison * 1 Nov. 21, 19-lf "* Stale Director Office of Govt. Reporls Little Rock. Ark. This is your-,.newspaper. Write to it. Letters criticising the editorial policy or comr'tnting upon facts "in the news columns, are equally welcome. Choose a topic everyone will be interested in. Be brief. Avoid personal abuse. The world's greatest critics were painfully polite. Every mriter mutt sign his name and address. They recommended that a single -..-, T aging director, with complete authority over the highway, be named to replace a welter of bureaus and deputies. Under him they placed two Aqiericans, one an expert in truck and road maintenance, the other an experienced dispatcher and terminal manager. These men were installed iri a main control office at Kunming, eastern end of the road. : ' Next, a highway patrol was' formed, detailed to keep traffic moviifg as 'smoothly as on any main higta way in America. A short wave radio system was built to aid in the task: Rounding out the organization was a department of finance, accounting and statistics, equipped to take, over, the work of a score of tax collectors and provincial officials formerly strung out along the road. With the foundation of this general structure completed, other important steps were taken; (1) Large maintenance stations, each under an American's direction 1 , were built a day's run apart. Shop foremen from the United States were assigned to supervise repairs and instruct Chinese assistants. Restaurants and over-night sleeping facilities were provided. (2) Intermediate repair shops, a half day's run fro mthe big centers, were built. Here, too, were restaurants and rest houses. And here, too, Americans were placed in charge. (3) Along the entire roadway was initiated the American "preventive maintenance plan," a system based on keeping trucks from breaking down rather than on repairs after the damage is done. (4) Drivers' schools, with 15 Americans as teachers, were set up at strategic centers. (5) Mobile repair shops and wrecking trucks were ordered, gasoline storage facilities obtained. (G) Orders for 10,000 new American-made trucks were entered in China's requisition for lend-lease aid! The new Burma Road set-up, Arn- Ktein testifies, replaces a sorry mess. He cites the case of one two-ton truck tound loaned with four tons of freight, plus gasoline for a round trip, plus half a dozen illicit pasn sengers each with a bundle. Lubrication was virtually non-existent — such vital parts as steering knuckles stood bare for weeks at a time. Drivers repaired their own trucks, cooked their own meals and arranged their own loads. When the New Yorker visited the highway he counted 16 agencies authorized to stop trucks and exact a fee or accounting information. When the deputies weren't around, the trucks waited. Delays in a single through journey sometimes added up to a week. Truckers formerly drove in convoys, traveling only as fast as the slowest truck. Today, as they drive alone, their progress is checked by the radio network, and police warn them of bombings and other emergencies. "Americanization" of the highway has been confined to the 600-mile stretch between the Burma-Chinese border and Kunming, capital of Yun- ngn province. Arnstein, viewing it for the first time, found himself "awful- lyy surprised" by the excellence of the asphalt-gravel-rock-pebble surface. It was, he quotes a friend, "a road scratched out by the fingernails of an empire." Completed, it gave China a through freight route to British India as a substitute for the Pacific ports lost in the war. Should Japan attempt a thrust through the jungles a#d mountains from Indo-China, she may wel 1 threaten the Burma Road. But the precipitous terrain would prove difficult if not impassable for mechanized ecjuip.- ment, leaving the issue to be decided by yifantry and guerrilla fighters. In this phase of b,er 4-Uul^glg \yith Japan, China so far has not been a loser. Praises Editorial ' Editor The Star: I have read with great interest and appreciation your column of November 15, commenting on the new folder of the Slate Planning Board. You will bo interested to learn that the owner of the new garment factory recently established at Arkadelphia came into the olfice of George Dews with this folder in his hand, .statin; that the population map on the back page had led him to select Arkansas for a. new unit in his small chain of factories. ; . I like the parallel you-draw between the present situat on in Arkansas and that of North Carolina a generation ago.
