PAGE TWELVE sains y, Johnson Declares Norway's Lesson Something To Be Thinking About By THOMAS .11. .IO1I.V50N' NBA Service MTililiry Wriltr WASHINGTON. May &.—Nprivaj' gives the United States much lo think about. The, Philippines arc farther from our shores than Oslo and Trondjiclm and Berger/ are from London. Our Philippine defense problem is more difficult '.Dinri: the. (tilled problem lit'Norway. Informed, military . opinfo.'i warns: "Get out before we're ; kicked put!" Big lesson in Norway- was the strength in narrow seas, close lo land, to land - based air power against sea power, Allied sea power was used timidly and tardily, but the allies may liesKnle even more the next liine. Consider llnly's pluncs might do off licr roasts, In the . narrow Medllerranian, the Adri- ntlc and the Aegean. onns WITH JAPANESE Now subslilutc the Philippines for Norway and put the United Stales In the allies' plnce. what would we do? Excellent military authority holds we could not, with .the troops and arms we now hiiv; in Hie Philippines, hold (he islands. The Japanese have a "Ion lo one chance" of capturing them before wo could send strong reinforcements. f This view takes Into account that Japan has more new battleships built and Is building more Ihiin the United Stales. (Our newest, was built in 1923.) It also takes into Recount thai it Ihc Japanese established iwintlou bases on the myriad Philippine Islands, 'our relief expedition would face greater difficulties than the allies did In Norway. instead of the narrow North Sen, American rtoops would have to cross 7500 miles of Pacific Ocean, menaced from flankhuj Japanese Islands. While we got one mart across, Japan could get 40, which was about how (he Germans outscorcd Ihc allies by way of the Oslo firry. So many military experts say we should get mil quickly. Get out before we're .kicked out. For if it '. is bad • strategy to lie too slow in attacking, as were the British in Norway, it Is also bad slrnloey to be too slow in getting out: Moreover, if we wait, and arc kicked out, enraged public opinion mny force IK (o spend three or* four years, billions of dollars und one to 200,000 casualties to got back --what, except national pride? The British in Norway have taught us still another lesson. If we are forced to send an expeditionary force-by the Pacific. . Ihc Atlnr.Hc, or the Caribbean — to wrest from' an invader territory seized and defended by shore-based aviation—then \ve ought lo be ready lo do it quickly. NKE» FOI1CK UBA1>Y TO 'MOVE' First requirement Is control of the seas by which im invader might ' pass. Our naval aviation would help- I warships could be safer against splinter damage— and naval constructors have not been utterly blind lo (lie warning i»> the skies. Second requirement is that we have nn expeditionary force ready and equipped. Equipment, is now the army's main problem, to congressional economies In a presidential year.
