S. on Way to Coast ^By MIWON BRONNEK NBA Service Staff Correspondent K .WASHINGTON — Mexico, which IUianks to the Roosevelt government's I Good Neighbor volicy is really a good |neighbor, is proving U at the present |moment, not only by breaking off I diploma tic relations with Japan, Gcr- |many and Italy, but also by taking I military precautions so that Lower I California and its huge gulf may not [be used by enemies of the United t States. 'And that is precisely one of the big- igest things that has occurred in the I-Western Hemisphere since the Japs J treacherously attacked Hawaii. In the last World War American au- horities had reason to believe that • German warships and raiders secret' ly used the waters of the Gulf of Calif fornia. In the after years the Gulf has at times been a favorite place i for Jap "fishermen." ' s In the present crisis with hostile ari- '> planes reported off the coast of Cali• fornia, the theory has been that they either based themselves upin air• craft carriers standing some 200 or 300 ''miles off the American coast or upon such vessels somewhree in the Gulf of California. The Mexican government is doing its •level and full best to see that the latter is not true now and that it may not be true in the fuure. It is a tremendous, task as a little geography will demonstrate. Lower California is a continuation of the American state of California.

With, the exception of the strip near the U. S. boarder, it has no railroads and few good roods lated, the last census showing only 95,416, of whom about half were Indians, living mainly by fishing. The lonely coasts on both the Pacific and the Gulf side are broken by many smaller gulfs and bays where ships could find haven and there is also a myriad of islands The famous inlets are Magdalena Bay on the Pacific ocean side and Conception Bay on the Gulf side. With such a land offering temta- tions to the enemies if the United States, President Manuel Camacho took prompt action. Uncle Sam Co-operates The U. S. just as promptly co-operated, by permitting the passage of a considerable number of Mexican troops through U. S. territory to reinforce the defenses of Lower California. They were to pass in transit over United States territory from Nogales Arizona to Tiajuana, Lower California, via San Diego. n few days in Hot Springs. Mrs. Fred Powell, Mrs. Audah Creed, Mrs. T. G.

S. navy and air forces to keep watch and ward in the Gulf of Mexico, the Mexan authorities are leaving only enough troops for proper police purposes. Soon 80 per cent of the regular army will be garrisoned in western Mexico. Just how many men this means is a military secret. The old Mexican army used to contain about 26,000 troops, but in recent times it has been considerably increased. Fairly large garrisons will be maintained at the cities ] of Guaymas and Mazatlan, which are important ports on the Mexican mainland on the east side of the Gulf of California. On the eastern shores of Lower California there will be garrisons at Santa Rosalia and at La Paz, capital of the peninsula On the west coast of Lower California there will be garrisons at Ensenada in the north and at Magdalena Bay far down the peninsula. Mexica has never maintained large naval forces. The last register showed one coast defense ship, five gunboats and about a dozen coast guard patrol ships. Nearly all of these have now been stationed in the Gulf of California to patrol its waters. How immensely important this is was demonstrated recently when one of the Mexican ships held up two Jap "fishing" vessels at the tip of the peninsula an dinterned the nine "fishermen." It was said seven of them looked very much like Jap soldiers and the other two had the bearing and education of Jap officers. Mexican airmen are doing their part in making air patrol over the peninsula and the Gulf. Moreover the I Mexican government has indicated to I the United States that American air- i men can join in this work if the au' thorities desire to do so.

No sooner had Price Administrate! Leon Henderson announced the ration of tires, autos and the courtailed production of replacement parts than the whole country broke out with a rash of petty thievry of tires and parts and the theft (already a felony on both state and federal statute books) of cars. Officidals fear that big-time crooks and racketeers, taking a page from the days prohibition, might try to organize the petty thieves into rings and by wholesale operations seriously undermine the curtailment program. Henderson's OPA is interested in the problem only in so far as it would throgh its psychological and morale effect on the driving public, place a stumbling block in the smooth development of tire, car and parts rationing. Realizing this, the American Automobile Association and several other agencies have asked Henderson to propose a bill to make the theft of tires, parts and accessories a federal offense. Thomas P. Henry, AAA president, in his appeal to Henderson, said, "The widesperad thievery is creating a bootleg market for illicit trade in these important commodities. This situation will develop into worse proportions unless strong measures are taken to counteract it." This may look fine in print, but reducing it to actual application in everyday prosecution of community and state offenders is another matter. To make the thefts of tires, tubes, parts, tec., a federal offense when committed in intra-state traffic, would require a constitutional amendment. The only comparable one we have in the Constitution now is that applying to narcotics. I don't think the AAA or any other organization or agency really hopes to see any federal lay passed which would eliminate this threat against one of the all-out war measures. J What they do hope and expect is that the individual states will take cognizance of the problem and pass laws which to make tire and parts thefts, heretofore for the most part no more than a petty offense, a felnoy. In New York State, the legislature we re sw already has loaded its legislative guns ar ound, to prevent this new type of bootlegging. A law has been introduced to make the thefts of even an aluminum hubcap a felony that could land a man in the Big House up the Hudson for many times 30 days. When a two-by-fuor hoodlum knows that he is up against a year or more in the penitentiary, there will be none of that sneaking around alley corners with a, "Hi, Mister, how'd you like to buy a fine inner tube—just off the boat from the Dutch East Indies, where they grow the real stuff. Its 100-proof. I wouldn't sell me own mother none of that^ re-cap stuff, Mister, you know that." nothing seem to grow rather peevish and petulant." (Miss Sanderson practices what she preaches, i After her marriage to Frank Crumit, with whom she starred in "No No Nanette," she retired. But she didn't remain on the sidelines long, She began n new career in radio and now stars with her husband in "The Battle of Sexes.") "Another impontrnt thing in keeping a husband happy," she says, "is to keep a zipper on your mouth. Women like to express opinions, but men don't care about hearing what they think about everything. A woman can think what she pleases, but she shouldn't say too much. "The most important thing of all though, is to be a good companion, a good friend. Play with your husband, dance with him, go out with him when he wants to go. Meet his mood. If he is gay, be gay too. If he is quiet, go along with him." As Miss Sanderson sal in the studio, t seemed to me she would please a huband pictorially as well us companionably. She wore a slim black frock whose bodice was accented with back sequin figures. A brimmed hat topped with black feathers shaded her blue eyes. Bands of diamonds and saphircs blazed on her wrist and a gold chain anklet shimmered through the sheer stocking above her steel- buckled pump. "There's something else very important in keeping a husband hnppy. she went on. "Don't try to possess him completely. Let him have a life o fhis own. If he loves golf or long hours of fishing, let him enjoy them. Men are like little boys, they love to run away and play awhile at their own games. They come home afterward—and they come home sooner it you don't resnet and complain nbout their outside interests. "And last, but very important. Don't pry. Never try to make a man tell you something if he doesn't want to men will keep a secret for awhile Vbmen will keep a secret tor awhile a thing they know quite wellthey will have to tell you in the end. It gives them a feeling of independence to think they're running things. If you don't upset that, you'll be happier." Miss Sanderson's career as a wife and radio star keeps her shuttling back and forth between New York'ant Long Meadow, Mass,, where sho anc her husband live. They bought a house there some years ago to be near Miss Scanderson's mother.
