LeMay's successor as commander of U. S. Air Forces in Europe will be Lt. .Gen. John K. Cannon •who has been head of thc air training command. The air force said the transfers will be made over the next several weeks. One of the top combat com- panders of the war, LeMay steps into a job in which he will have charge of B-29's and other heavy planes. If this country were suddenly attacked, his would be the responsibility of retaliating with bpmbs. During thc war, his own bombing exploits won him the admiration of hundreds of his men and the nickname "Ironpants" for his fearless disdain of enemy flak. In Europe, ho perfected pattern bombing from B-17's. In the Pacific, his planes demolished 125 miles of Japanese industrial facilities in 25 cities. The transfers came as a surprise. "It's brand new lo me," Kennedy lold newsmen. "When you Set orders von have <o obey them, 1 just got thc word." Kenney, who directed U. S. wartime air operations in the Southwest Pacific, gave assurances that LeMay would "take over a going concern." He said the B-29 crows he will turn over to LeMay superior to any this country are . had during the war—"They know more about flying; they're a wonderful gang of youngsters." The blunt-spoken Kenney, who has held his command since March, 1946, has always worked on the premise that he was shipping his crews into shape for another conflict. He told an audience recently in Bangor, Me.: "Th,,question today is quite simple and direct: When will the Communist crowd start operation America?" o Bull's Birthday So sacred was the bull in Egypt at one time 'that its birthday was celebrated and, after its death, it was mummified rock tomb. and buried in folk in the Far East are dependent on them, especially the rice which is their "staff of life". So this intensified Red offensive is calculated not only, to deprive the democracies of military supplies, but to block rehabilitation. This situation has impelled British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bcv- Jn to charge in parlament that the Communsts are following a plan aimed at the seizure of Southeast Asia. He told a tense House of Commons that the scheme for stirring, up civil war is an instrument of foreign policy, and that if it continues "no one can see the end to which it may lead thc nations who are promoting it." He indicated that Britain will do her best to oppose it "wherever it rears its ugly head." Former Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden supported this grim thesis. He pointed to Communists in Malaya and Burma as "part of a plan," and recalled that Lenin referred to Southeast Asia as the "backdoor of Capitalist and Imperialist power." Simultaneously the U. S. Slate Department sharply counter-at- 'ackod in a statement against thc Bolshevist "drive for power" in Southeast Asia. Thc department made known that it was considering a "course of action," though it didn't disclose the ty_pc of action contemplated. At thc same lime Dutch Foreign Minister Drrk Udo Stikker visited Washington in the hope that America would take a stand against the snread of communism in the Far East, where the Netherlands is so vitally interested in Indonesia. Apparently his concern was well founded, since the news from Batavia, Java, is that the young Indonesian republic is facing civil war. The Communists have seized Madiocn, in thc central part of the island of Java. This is the third largest city of the republic and so is a serious loss. -The Bolshevists accuse the republican government of "selling the country lo the Imperialists," and of trying to deliver Indonesia into the hands of the Dutch. Word also comes from an informed source in Jogjakarta, capi- lal of the Indonesian republic, that a document found in Communist party files discloses that a Com- munist coup was to be staged in Java after a rebellion v:an under way in Malaya. The document is quoted as saying the Java uprising was to form an integral part of Ihc spread of communism in Southeast sia. Well, the Malayan uprising has been under way for sonic time, so this may be the appointed hour for the big Red effort in Java. That. great and rich island is the center of Communist agitation in Inclone- ia. Thc whole Far East is throbbing with the Bolshevist threat.

"Pure politics." snorted former Rep. Roger C. Slaughter, who lost bis 194G rc-eloclion bid in Missouri's democratic primary when the president supported his opponent, Enos Axteil. Slaughter said that while he has represented grain interests before congressional groups, he served only as their counsel. Therefore, he said, there was no need for him lo register Ask GOP .? Nominee Be Replaced Little Hock, Sept. 21 — (!P)~ A representative of the two Democratic nominee:; to the Garland county board of election commissioners today requested — over GOP protests—that the Republican nominee be replaced. Julian Glover, Democratic nominee for prosecuting attorney of . the district comprising Garland [ and Montgomery counties, asked the stale election board to replace Richard Ryan, Hot Springs, GOP nominee and veteran member of the Garland county board, with Garnelt N. Kisele, Hot Springs. Glover said there had been dissatisfaction with the former board. Neither of the Democratic members of the board. Carl E. Miles and Ed Vance, were renominated. His request was protested by Ryan: Howell Bailey, representing the Garland county Republican convention which nominated Ryan, and Wallace Townsond. Republican national commitleeman for Arkansas. Bailey told the state board that Ryan's service had been entirely satisfactory and added that ho believed the wishes of the Republican organization should be followed. Townscnd concurred. There was no contest over the two Democratic nomincss to the Garland county board William Department, as a lobbyist.

Mr. Truman said Saturday in Dexter, Iowa, that this action had forced farmers to sell wheat at less than Ihe price guaranteed by the government. Slaughter denied that, saying farmers had found too little storage .space because of unusually large grain crops, not because of the CCC restriclions — which he described as "Ihc firsl imi step to take the government business on a big scale." Commenting that the contract under which he- acled for grain interests definitely excluded him from lobbying activity, Slaughter said: "Mr. Truman's action, in mv opinion, is simply a continuation of his personal fight of 19-10 in which he and Pendergast succeeded in their purge of me, only to face a barrage of vote frauds.''
