By DeWlTT MacKENZIE i The war is entering a critical phase in which air-power bids fair to play a part far excedeing in importance anything that has gone before. Market Report Looking back at such frightful aerial sieges as that of Britain it's hard to believe the skies could unloose greater death and destruction. Yet we are on the verge of vast ' developments. The air navies are rushing J towards bombing operations which \ will be unprecedented in violence - and size. At least the Allied forces 1 are headed that way. The Luft- waffe is keeping-remarkably quiet but it will be surprising if Hitler ST. LOUIS LIVESTOCK National Stockyards, 111., March 13 —W— (U. S.

Stories have been spreading about new designs of automobiles (and planes, refrigerators, radios, etc.) which will be popped at the public as soon as the war is over. These stories have caused owners to consider their present models already outmoded and to make them eager to get rid of their "old" 1941-42 model cars (the same applies to other products) in order to save up for the whiz-bangs that will roll off the production lines when peace comes.

This doesn't in' elude the devastation wrought by the American Air Force. We may expect this bombing to increase in intensity, for it is the forerunner of the eagerly awaited invasion of France by the Allies. Hitler's chief industries, bases and communications must be crippled. It would be massacre to try to put an army ashore from the English channel without this preparation and without providing an absolute umbrella of warplane protection for the landing.

Confining himself to the motor industry — which he is most qualified to speak for — he said: -The industry, I feel quite certain, is going back into producing in the '42 models "There is no time now for engineers to develop new things, or modifications of old ones. The people who are most capable of doing that are needed to develop war products. "There is no material available for experimental models. There are o surolus tool - makers to make ew tools.."

Here again the Anglo- American airfleet would break trial and must be met by the Luftwaffe. Speaking of North Africa, Allied air superiority in Tunisia is play ing a major ..part in operations which are swinging our way. Allied air supremacy in Libya was a vital factor in General Montgomery's historic victory over Rommel. As soon as we have manhandlec Der Fuehrer sufficiently we shall go all out against Japan. Here again it will be the air which wil lead the way for an invasion tha will clear Burma of the Japs and reopen the supply route to China Then will come the blasting o Tokyo and other Japanese citie: until Ihe MWado will have lo qui to save his little island from bein blown out of the sea. We won't overlook that our ai strength in the Southwest Pacifi permitted of the unprecedented vie tory over the Japs in the Bismarc Sea. That warplane fleet is a majo factor in maintaining superiorit over the Japs in that strategic area. So the call of the air is increas- ngly great in all the theatres of war. We are piling up vast strength, but we are far from the necessary peak. We need more and more and more if we are to shorten the conflict. Desrtuction by air is far cheaper in Allied lives and equipment than destruction by our armies. A squadron of bombers can wipe out in a few hours what it might take an army months to destroy. Sir Commodore H. N. Thornton, British air attache in Washington, says super 1,000 plane raids on western Europe and Germany wil be increased "when we get the planes." that.s the story. said Mr Wilson, s'that if we delay in reconverting peacetime production we will a serious employment prob- He added: o lave em. If the industry had to wait after he war is over until the engineers ould develop improved products ind new things; unit tool designers and tool makers could make he tools; and we could get our plans arranged for production, we Arould have a very, very serious ,ime with un - employment, and irobably our social political struc- ;ure can not stand that kind of dislocation. So I feel quiet safe in predicting that the industry will start right in producing cars like the good ones we were making when the war came." Mr Wilson's talk wasn't confined to what the early peacetime cars would be. The new models, he said, probably would begin to appear a year and a half to two years after peace comes. He explained that engineers and designers already have lost about two years "on the cycle of continuing improvement, testing, etc. Then, he intimate, would come the "dream cars" of the future.-new and lighter body designs, light •airplane motors" and improved ubricants, more plastics and more bricants, more plastices and more rubber. Several industrial designers talked to agree whole heartedly with Mr. Wilson. had to punch his way through dynamite in Madison Square Garden last night. This may be very confusing, but that's exactly what happened — Corporal Barney Ross of the Marines, by just taking a bow, was the "hot-shot" for a sell-out gather ing, while Jimmy Bivins, the Cleveland cloutcr, had to swat the cars off Tami Mauriello to get even close to the pats on the back from the 19,982 customers who made this the biggest turnout in the old Eighth Avenue abbatoir this season. This was because the little corporal came back to the garden, where he fought most of his great fights on his way to winning the world welterwieght. lightweight and junior welterweight championships a few years back. It was just as ex-mayor Jimmy Walker voiced it for all concerned when he said "all the neighbors arc happy because little Barney has come home.'" This was part of Jimmy's speech in presenting the Edward J. Neil Memorial Trophy in the garden ring to the little corporal as boxing's "Man of the Year" for 1942. This honor was voted to Barney by the boxing writers for his job of knocking off 22 Japs while protecting three wounded buddies on Guadalcanal one night last November. And ex-mayor Jimmy explained just how all the folks felt when he added that it didn't matter whether Ross' post-office address was New York, where he did most of his big-league fighting, or Chicago, where he lived most of his life, or Guadalcanal, where he scrambled the Japs that night last fall. What matters, said Walker, is that "it's just that you, Barney, will ever have a permanent residence in the heart of every sports fan in America." After that send-off for Barney, the best Bivins could do was to thump Mauriello around the premises — and he did just that. After a slow start during the first two rounds, Mr. Long-Arm from Cleveland whacked Tami all over the place through the middle heats and then stood off the Bronx belter's stretch drive to win a narrow ten round decision. One judge voted for a draw, after the other judge and the referee ballotted for Bivins Having thus disposed to Mauriel lo for the second time in six months Cleveland Jimmy is now definitely Mr. Big among those heavyweight off Tami and Bob Pastor and Lee Savold, among others still Hisca till active.

'. "We're not goini? to make an individual hero out o£ you," said Jimmy. . . "That's the most annoying existence in the world. You can't live it down for the rest of your life, and for the rest ot your life you can't live up lo it." . . . Barney has had to live up to his hero's role ever since he got jack from Guadalcanal and a couple of times yesterday he looked as if he needed the Red Cross more th;\n the Red Cross needed him. It must take a lot of fortitude to go through those receptions, loo.

But his best wise crack of the day when he dropped into the dressing room to congratulate Jimmy Bivins and someone told him the fight gate was $74,715. . . . said Barney: "I wish I were getting the champion's end this evening." Today's Guest Star Eddie T. Jones, Champaign-Urbana (III.) Courier: "Those top- :ieavy scores and successive lacings the Maroons absorb may be the remedy Chicago needs.

NOTICE Washington — The tenth anniver- ! sary of the New Deal March 4 finds that political juggernaut facing effective opposition for the first time in the amazing decade since President Roosevelt entered the White House. There has been setbacks before —the Supreme Court fight and such —but they were never more than temporary and a few days or weeks found the New Deal blitzkrieg rolling again. In the elections last year, the Democrats took the worst drubbing since they came to power. They retained numerical superiority in the House by the skinof-theteeth majority of 14 and their majority in the Senate was cut to 18. Was this a straw in the election wind? The anti - New Deal Democrats apparently figured it so, for the rebellion in Congress is the talk of Washington and of the country Almost from the start of the Nev Congress it was apparent that thi: was not just a scrap between thj White House and the Hill on a sin gle issue.
