Terns Collects Grim Jap Souvenirs Pieces of Plane Souvenirs Saved at Honolulu By BETTY MncDONALD NEA Service Correspondent HONOLULU-Grim souvenirs from Japanese planes and submarines that were lost in the attack on Hawaii December 7 arc being carefully hoarded by Honolulahs to show their grandchildren. One employe at the Pan American Airways salvaged a 900x200 plane tire and innertube in perfect condition. Stamped on the tube, taken from the plane that fell in eight feet of water, is 14-9-1, or September 1, 1939. (14 means the 14th year of the Showa reign; 1942 is the 17the year.) One photographer boasts a grimy tennis shoe with raised heel, taken from a submarine officer in command of a 40-foot suicide sub. Other items of clothing from a Japanese pilot, who went down at Pearl Harbor, were bimurcatcd socks, a fundoshi, or Jap breechclout, a leather jacket, a helmet with earphones, a scarf, gabardine uniform and bandana head covering. School children are gleefully hoarding bits of shrapnel and bombs that landed on nearby homes and in the streets. One lucky young man from Wahiawa, near Schofield, owns a plane wing, American made, with the original blue paint showing through the red. At the tip is the sign of the Rising Sun. Even a blackout has its bright side. Honolulu has been completely blacked out every night since December 7, and residents have worked up several ingenious devices. One family solved the problem of stumbling over Fido in the dark by tying a bell around his neck. When he "wanted out" during blackout, they dipped his tail in phosphorus to warn block wardens of his approach. A real "tail light," if I may be permitted to say so. Men are wearing blackout belts made of transparent material that glows in the dark. People who don't make the blackout deadline and are caught out after hours on darkened streets are urged to wear squeaky shoes and whistle as they approach sentries. "It saves a shot in the dark," explain officials. A half million people on this beleaguered tropic island have been playing Robinson Crusoe in earnest since that sunny Sunday, December 7, when Pearl Harbor was bombed. Honolulu, at the dawn of the new year, is digging in for a long war. ' It's a wartime town now and forgotten are the miles of sunny beaches (covered with barbed wire), waving cocoapalms (whose glistening leaves in moonlight catch enemy eyes), and hula dancers (they're in civilian defense work now.) Families are thinking in terms of blackout rooms, food conservation and bomb shelters now And at present, the problem of building a bomb shelter is more important to the family head than buying a new car, if he could buy a new car in Honolulu. Army regulations require each male citizen to construct a shelter to protect his family, and the U. S. district engineers have issued a series of drawings to be followed in 'digging in." "The shelter should not be too close to the dwelling," warn army officials. "One should keep in mind also that he may be required to remain in the shelter several hours at a time.

And the Anti-Axis world sits up to applaud in pleased surprise. Pleased they may well be—but surprised? The Dutch say they shouldn't be. When these so-called "Beggers of the Sea" and their "Flying Dutchmen" uncorked one uppercut after another against the Japs to maintain a reported quota of sinking "an enemy ship a day" they merely carried on the Netherlands greal naval tradition. The Dutchmen are jusl a proud of the "Beggars of the Sea" as Americans are of the U. S. Marines' nickname of "devil dog." The title of "beggcrs" was first given to Dutch seamen by scornful Spanish admirals in the early empire-building days when Spain was content to let the Hollanders have the scraps. Later, skill in battle and seamanship by the Dutchmen made the Spanish regret their words. Society Miss Addys Brown and Miss Jimmie water, first aid kit, canned food and even a portable radio can be found useful." The basic design is a trench six feet deep and two feet wide dug as long as the builder wishes. The excavated earth is piled up on each side to guard against shrapnel, or piled over a roofing of logs or galvanized iron. The shelter may be a mere hole in the ground for one person, or long enough for several families. Some are built in the shape of an L, or sig- zag to stop flying splinters. ,In one neighborhood district in the mountains in back of Honolulu, several families have rehabilitated an ancient Hawaiian burial cave that burrows a mile into the side of the cliff. At the very end of the cave, early residents of the district found 12 coffins in a dry, raised area guarded by a deep subterranean pool. They have now equipped it with mattresses, lights, canned goods and have run a garden hose in from a neighbor's yard. The entrance is seven by tewelve feet, and in an emergency 30 people could safely be quartered there. What to do when planes are zooming overhead and bombs whistle down from a sunny sky? All Honolulu asked that question during the attack on the city December 7 by the Japanese, and a sane set of answers came immediately from the city disaster council. "Fall flat on your face if worst comes to worst," advised Edouard L. Doty, territorial director for civilian defense. Mr. Doty pointed out that most casualties in war areas occur where civilians won't take to cover and are exposed to bomb and anti-aircraft splinters, machine gun bullets and flying glass. "But there's nothing much a person can do when a high explosive bomb falls and explodes close to a house, or directly on it," he said. —Centerville. January 13—2:00 p.m. Hickory Shade —Centrville.

By tradition the Dutch have been fierce fighters on the sea. They start training their future naval officers as boys of 16 at the Koninklyk voor de Marine Instituut, the Annapolis of Holland, ship them to the East Indies and West Indies until they arc perfectly trained, and then keep training them. Since the invasion of Holland, new naval schools have been opened in England and the Netherlands.

And in three days 1,062 violators paid $1,840 into the city treasury. men are veterans and among the most highly trained of all the fleet personnel American-built planes have long helped form the backbone of the Netherlands' scrappy air force. The first order was placed in 1915 for Martin bombers, which have been prominent in the air arm ever since. Flying with them today are American- built Lockboeds, Curtisses, Brewslcrs and Ryans. While naval officers have always received their fundamnetal schooling in Europe, the air corps men have been trained in the Indies as well as abroad. In both the Netherlands Army and Navy, and in their respective air arms, natives in the Indies are used in all phases o foperations. They make particularly good seamen and are rated as good as the whites when it comes to flying planes. In the navy, the natives hold ranks up to chief petty officer. While tho present strength of the Netherlands Navy is kept secret. Jane's Fighting Ships of 1940" listed the pre-war • fleet as comprising five cruisers, eight destroyers, six torpedo bots, two motor torpedo boats, 24 submarines, five gunboats, nine mine layers, 16 mine sweepers, one submarine depot ship, one gunnery training ship and 40 auxiliary craft. The army, guarding the 70,000,000 natives and 250,000 whites, is professional, well trained and modernly equipped with everything from 6000 mechanized units and motor vehicles to new anti-tank guns and powerful anti-aircraft weapons. Crow Becomes the Farmer's Friend WILMINGTON, N. C.-(/P)-The ancient war between Die farmer and the crow over com, it is predicted, will come to an end in the Southeastern States. With the gradual shift to livestock and dairying, corn is being displaced by grasses that afford year-round grazing. The result is th ahltc cows feed 011 dusU'uctive insects. Trucks Form Army Backbone Moke Debut as Lifeline of Army Panzer Divisions By NKA Service WASHINGTON-Amcrlcnn is biiilcl- ing tm army of truck drivers. The most indispcnsiblc mobile wenpon In Uncic Sum's new motorized fighting forces is not the 28-ton lank, the heavily armored combat car or even the vicious 105-mm. howitzer—but the ordinary, everyday truck. Proof is supplied by the aclunl vc- hiculur count of the famed Fort Knox Ky., First Armored Disision, one of the models of a modern mechanized unit. Its equipment consists of 574 light tanks; 220 medium tanks; 558 scout curs; 56 staff curs; -nnd 2017 trucks. An illustration of the mngnitudc of the Army's dependence on trucks is the estimate that it would take nil the trucks in n city the si/.c 'of Minneapolis, working 24 hours a tiny for a week, to supply the Army with enough onions to season a month's rations. Trucks made their debut as instruments of national defense during the middle o fthc first World War. Where that World War problem called for manpower, however, Indies of today's war of mass movement call for horse- power—rcnndy to move nt autombllvc speeds on a moment's notice with a minimum of delay. The problems raised by those new concepts are being solved by industrial ingenuity. Bullet Scaling Tires Are Used Pneumatic tires, for example, have replaced the ancient solids, with resulting increases in speed and mo- | bility. To make these relatively thin tires invulnerable to gun fire, B. F. Goodrich Company technicians have drawn on materials nnd processes used in manufacture of bullet-scaling gasoline tanks for combat airplanes. The result is an inner tube which can be penetrated by burst after burst of machine gun fire and still retain enough air pressure to carry the vehicle many miles beyond the danger zone. One of the newest developments is a "run-flat" tire which defies snipers, machine guns and even small cannon. But even these nrenot enough to satisfy all requirements, for the Army Transport Service, freight division, estimates 'that about half of the food used by the Army is hauled by private carriers because they arc better acquainted with highway routes and sources of supply. In arrition, the Quartermaster Corps has begun to build up a collection of mobile military conveniences,' mostly mounted in trailers nnd drawn by 2 % ton trucks. One of these miraculous mechanizations is a mobile bathing unit wyhich provides baths., Physical checkups and frash clothing for 50 soldiers per hour. Other trucks perform such duties as: Wednesday, January 14,1942 STORIES' IN STAMPS Hong Kong Harbor Was Once a Pirate Hideout ""THE harbor on the island of Hong Kong, where a small British garrison showed surprising resistance to heavy Japanese attacks, has developed from an obscure pirate haunt to one of the world's greatest ports In the century that it has been an English possession. * Its deep, sheltered harbor, pictured on the stamp above, which was issued in 1941 to commemorate the 100th year of British rule, is 10 square miles in area. Before the British occupation the island was desolate, populated only by a small fishing colony, and was a natural hangout for pirates and contraband smugglers who dealt in the opium trade. It was during the .Opium War of 1839-1842 that the English utilized the harbor as a base for their ships. It has a strategic importance since the port has east and west entrances and commands all sea approaches. Hong Kong was ceded to Great Britain in 1841 and confirmed by the Treaty of Nan- king the following year. Before World War II the harbor \vas the chief center of the Far East passenger service and was second only to Singapore as a tin market, On the path of the chief trade route to China, Hong Kong tended to become Japan's center of trade with south China. said with pride: "I stood beside him just two dnys ngo, as he said to your Ambqlsmjor—Hellj President Roosc- volt for me, thnt Argentina nwnits his leadership.'
