With tbe Nationalist government of China rocking on its heels before the (Communist assault, the quarrel in [neighboring Indonesia between the ' Ked-influenced republic and the Dutch government has again become critical. You know the fundamental basis of the trouble in Indonesia, which is one of the world's treasure houses for tin, rubber, oils, quinine, sugar, spices and other essentials. The natives waul their "independence" from The Nether- lauds —and quick; tbe Dutch are trying to weld the heterogeneous mass of islanders into some sort , ol. cohesion that Ihe "mother country" hopes lo develop, into a commonwealth of nations acknowledging the crown as a bond. Tbe nroblcm isn't easy of solution. When Indonesia is mentioned the average Westerner naturally thinks of Java, Sumatra, Dutch Borneo and Celebes. However, the archipelago comprises 3,100 islands, containing 150 ethic groups with varying languages and customs and in difference stages of development. Moreover the population of the islands' is 75,000.000. The greatest difficulty revolves about the Indonesian republic which was established in 1947 and claims to represent Java. Sumatra and Madoera. Moscow-directed Communists are making the re- nublic the center of tbe Red offensive in the islands. However, there are six other governments j and the Dutch are striving lo bring all seven regimes into one federal government—patterned after that of the U. S. A.—which would be inaugurated early in 1949. Everything seemed set for this change when the Republican government backslid. This is said to be clue to domination of the big Republican army by the Communists. The army, which was largely trained by the Japanese and is hostile lo Westerners, wants the republic to be absolutely free and outside any federal set-up. Premier Mohamed Hatta of the republic some time ago expressed a wiliilnlgness to join with the Dutch in working out a commonwealth which would be introduced by the intermi federal government. But Hatta apparently doesn't control his army, which totals more than 40,000 men. and so can't make any guarantes. A few days ago Hatta directed a letter to the Dutch government with a view to resuming negotiations. But the Dutch yesterday staled that the letter said Hatta was speaking for himself. That is, it wasn't a declaration by the republic. So Ibc Dutch announced lhal negotiations couldn't be resumed on any such basis. The most unhappy aspect of the situation is that fighting may be resumed in Indonesia. For thai reason possible action by the U. N Security Council will be awaited with eager interest. Military authorities hoped today that blood-stained trousers and uri- dershorts found in a barracks might lead to the rape-slayers of the "most beautiful girl on Guam."

From that inauspicious start sprung the overland mail as a result of the Gold Rush of '49, followed by the Pony Express in I860 Unking cast and west with what was the fastest mail delivery the the forefathers of that era could conceive. Then came the railway mail service connecting virtually all crossroads of America. The next innovation that has brought this nation the world's fastest, modern postal delivery service was the airplane shortly after tne turn of the century. Down though the years air mail facilities have expanded to such an extent lhat today it is commonplace to wing letters and parcels to all parts of the globe. "In this Air Age", added Postmaster Wilson, "the speedier airmail and air parcel post service, which envelopes more than 300,000 route miles of domestic and inf^r- national airways blanketing every sector of the world, is available from our city at the lowest rales in history. "When you consider that patrons may still be assured of their greeting cards and packages being delivered in ample time for Christmas by the simple expedient of air mail, whether they be going 500 or 5.0.00 miles, then thte progress made in our postal delivery service is nothing short of phenomenal," Postmaster Wilson con eluded as he again turned his attention to the deluge of Christmas mail. service diately. but indicated that men, who were not named, involved in the ' result of discovery of" the bloodstained clothing. The clothing was turned over to authorities by an informer, Copeland said. He said that many of the approximately 27.000 servicemen on the island have been turning in information which mi«ht bear on the case, and that invosti- ;ators now have "a routine task" checking it. Authorities believe, Copeland indicated, that two or more men were involved in the attack upon Miss Farnsworth. -She was dragged last Saturday night from a jade shop where she worked part time f" ally "--•'- by jungl0 ' rapcd and Washington.

Mrs. Jenkins was hurried to Muh- leuberg hospital, where she gave birth to two girls, weighing four pounds. 5 3-4 ounces, and three pounds. 1 1-4 ounces. The babies were placed in incu bators. and they and the mother were "doing well" today. Friday, December 17, 1940 Jenkins told police he had been out of work for months until; only ,ast month when he went to' work 'or the central railroad of' New Jersey as a trackwalker. He said the electricity in the home had been turned off for non payment of bills, and there was no money for coal for the furnace.
