Douglas MacArthur's headquarters today reported a smashing -issaull on the big Japanese base at Rabaul, New Britain, in which Allied fliers plastered the airdrome with 392 bombs, while other United Nations airmen attacked an enemy outpost in the Kai islands between Australia and New Guinea. The attack on Rabaul, just before dusk yesterday, touched off many fires and explosions and further crippled Japan's aerial striking power in the Southwest Pacific. Meanwhile, a Tokyo broadcast quoted Premier Hidcki Tojo as warning Japan that "the war situation is becoming more serious" — a confscsion underlined by Secretary Knox's statement in New York last night that Japan has lost 1,857,000 tons of shipping, or one- third of her tonnage at the beginning of the war. "The journey to victory is just Forgotten Men of Combat Flying Are Ground Crews bceun," Knox said. "We have readied the point By THOBURN WINANT A United Stales Heavy Bomber Base Somewhere in India, March 15 —(Delayed) — (/P)— The forgotten men of combat flying arc the ground crews. They don't get headlines, or medals or public acclaim, and they are never mentioned in com- muniques. But there wouldn't be any communiques if the ground crews weren't on the job before and after each combat mission. Talk to any pilot, and he'll give credit where credit is due. "The fact is they deserve most of the credit," declared Major William R. Starkc. 29, of Starkvillc, Miss., a squadron commander. "All we do is fly the planes. We arc utterly dependent upon the ground crews. If they didn't keep our planes in the best possible condition, we couldn't bomb targets in Burma day after day. A ground crew's work is never done. Each plane has more than 5,000 different gadgets to be checked. Before a plane can leave for combat at least ,25 ground area at American field hospital in New Guinea. Mrs. F. D. Middlcbrooks and little daughter. Kathic, of Little Rock are the guests of Mrs. Middlebrooks' mother, Mrs, B. M. Jones. Lt. and Mrs. Harry Shiver are expected today from Fort Sam Houston, Texas for a visit with Mr. and Mrs. Harry Scgnar, Sr. Mr. and Mrs. H. M. Olscn arc spending the remainder of the week in Chicago. Mrs. J. M. Churchwcll and her sister, Mrs. V. E. Whitwell of Little Rock, have returned from Kecsler Field, Miss., where they were guests of Pvt. George Churchman. Mr. and Mrs. Garrctt Story, Jr. and children have returned to their home in Mindcn, La. after spending several days with relatives. Mrs. Garrett Story and granddaughter, Carolyn, Mrs. Herbert Voss and daughter, Margaret, and Mrs. J. W. Perkins and son, William, motored to Tcxarkana yesterday. Mrs. Blackic Elliot departed today for Dallas, where she will be the guest of relatives. Among the Hope visitors to Tcx- arkana yesterday were Mrs. Otis Gray, Mrs. John Clark. Mrs. Olin Put-tic, Mrs. Chester Hunt, and Mrs. Perry Taylor. Husband of Blevins Girl Listed Missing Mrs. Lucille Jackson of Shrove- port, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. S. .F. Loc of Blevins, was notified yesterday that her husband Jack Jackson of the U. S. Army, has been missing in action in the African theater since February. The War Department notification was by telegram. A Lucky Find Boonville. Mo. —Wj—While pondering what to buy his wife for her birthday anniversary, Capt. C. V.

Sclman of Chattanooga has devoted a large portion of his farm to the production of blessed thistles, a plan needed in large quantities for certain pharmaceutical preparations. The war has shut off the source of supply in Euroope, which held a virtual monoply on blessed thistle for many years, so Selman increased his production to 82,000 pounds last year. He expects another bumper crop this season. Coffee Roasted On The Run London— (/P} —Now "GI Java" for American soldiers is coming from coffee roasted fresh on Army mobile units. There's a great demand among the fighting forces for American coffee, but supplies have been curtailed due to limited British roasting facilities and the lack of cargo where the conduct of this struggle will be from now on, of our own choosing. The initiative is ours." The Tokyo radio said Premier Tojo would be given extraordinary.! new war - time powers today and announced the formation of 'a board of advisers to the Japanese cabinet lo stimulate "an increase of fighting strength." While Japan thus displayed signs of worry over the trend of the war, Allied warplanes continued to blast at the westward movement of Japanese troops and supplies to the islands above Australia, attacking three enemy coastal vessels off western Dutch New Guinea. At the same time, Gen. MacArthur revealed the discovery of an elaborate Japanese encampment 50 miles above Allied - captured Buna, New Guinea, which was apparently intended as a base for a new offensive by 15,000 enemy troops killed in the battle of the Bi'smarck sea. Allied troops found the camp while mopping up in the area of the Mambare river mouth. A communique said the base afforded an "elaborate and recently constructed defense system, including prepared positions, pillboxes and hospital and other installations for a large force" — the force that was sent to the bottom of the Bismarck Sea in the destruction of a 22 - ship Japanese convoy en route to New Guinea. this base always are ready to go out on a mission — a percentage hard lo beat anywhere. In charge of maintenance is Lieut Raymond Scherff, 20, of Rye, N. Y., a combat pilot who has fought the Germans and Italians in the Middle East as well as the Japanese in Burma. He lakes the planes aloft for tests after the ground crews finish. And he does his share of operational flying over Burma, loo. His right hand man is Sergt. Francis D. Kenny, 23, of Norristown, N. J., line chief. Also assisting is Sergt. Emmett L. King, 28, of Raymorc, Mo, engineering inspector. King said his squadron was the air corps' oldest in point of overseas duty. He said its history dated back to the first world war, during which it was wiped out three times. Ground crewmen include Pvt. James W. Bennett, 23, Bruce, Miss.; Pvt. Harley J. Miller, 24, Waldron, Ark.; and Pvt. L. T Mitchie, 29, Merigold, Miss rewmen musi pui it in order. Sec- nds after it returns they go to /ork again, checking and recheck- ng it for the next mission.

No One Under 16 No Children in Arms n Screen // Bride For Henry" GREETERS CHAPTER XVI «VOU mean, Ed, that we've got . to fly west again? To catch up with Jimmy?" "Yes'm. That's what he said. And it's not any forgery this time." "But—but why? Why does he want me?" Ed Bryan, airplane pilot, shook his head. "You know as much as I do, Miss Pat. He just telephoned me this morning and said I was to take you and catch up with him. Later I got verified orders from Colonel Furedy himself, so it ain't no monkey business." "No. But my stars, whatever can Jimmy want? Let me get my coat, Ed." Just that quick she was ready. Ed Bryan had telephoned her out of a sound sleep and she was dressed when he came for her at V a. m. She hadn't eaten breakfast, but she was ready to fly. You don't question orders in the Army, you obey them, Pat told herself. They snatched coffee and a bite of food before taking off, and Ed had some food in the plane for tier, too. "This is no short hop," he explained. "We'll have to refuel along the way, but mostly we're going to be flying. We're to catch him at Phoenix." "But what about the Kansas stops? And Denver, Colo.?" "Route's been changed, the colonel said. They cut out all bu Phoenix. On account of Phoenix is having a big soaring carnival 01 something, honoring Captair Carr." "Now that's nice!" "Sure! But why you and me have to be there, I don't know.' "Jimmy didn't specify a thing? What we were to do?" "No ma'am. He said to tucl you in a plane and catch up will him at the earliest possible stop That's all he did say." They took off without fanfar and roared away to the west Backed by Colonel Furedy, Ed had clearance at all the fields en route And the flying today was exceptionally smooth. To help puss the time for her Ed taught Pat a lot of thing through their head phones. You can always learn more flying lor from a pilot in the air than you can from the books on flying, sh had heard Jimmy sny, and sh vas a fascinated pupil. Later, .lough, she interrupted Ed. "Ed, tell me, would you marry n aviator? A girl who was crazy bout soaring and flying and all?" The big drawly southerner eyed icr in surprise, "I'd marry a Fiji islander if I igured she belonged to me:" Oh Ed!" she laughed at him. Ed Bryan was a good friend to lave. It turned out that he knew a ot about the middle west, and ho old her things without empha- iizing her own ignorance. "This is my first trip west of Chicago," she confessed. "I hear tell there's a lot of land, jeyond the Mississippi. We'll be ieeing. How come you asked who I'd marry?" "I—I don't know." "My girl don't fly. She runs a jeauty shop. We're putting war bonds in the old sock, against the time." "Ed! How nice!" "Yes'm. . . . What did you mean, marry a girl crazy about soaring and flying? You meant if I was Captain Carr, didn't you?" "Why, Ed Bryan! I said no such thing!" # * * T-TE was chuckling, and she could - 1 - 1 - hear that, too, over their head set. The captain is the smartest man I know," Ed went on, "bul why he chose the dame he picked must be a military secret." "Hush, Ed." "Yes'm." The day was long, and it was good to break it this way with friendly conversation. Pat was able to sleep for about two hours It made her feel grand again West of Oklahoma City she was fascinated by the changing landscape. Here, Ed informed her, the wild west began. And it looked wild, too; cities became scarce plains barren. Then after a while mountains of amazing color aw contour arose dramatically before them. "We're seeing the Rockies," Ed said. "Oh-h-h! Ed, they're so different. Rugged and—and every thing!" Her description was in adequate, but her enthusiasm was correct; more scholarly folk than Pat Friday have lacked words Ic describe the Rocky Mountains. Over New Mexico they ap preached a storm that was firs sand, then rain and hail. It acted afraid of them and shied on away They refueled at Santa Fe, an Pat got same travel folders telling about the southwest. "Oh, look, Ed," she held a japer. "Here's a picture of Super- tition Mountain, where the famous lost gold mine is. I've read about that!" "It's in spittin' distance ol 'hoenix, too." "Fifty miles," she read. "It even ooks ghostly in the picture." "It's east of town. We'll take a look at it, going by." As they came to Superstition fountain they encountered a vind blow once more. It was a black, maverick-like storm, which snorted and tossed the plane but was too small to do harm, a tiling characteristic of the Rockies. All he terrain and natural phenomena here were fascinating, Pat 'ound. They were to arrive at Phoenix ust before sundown. Only a very fast Army ship could have made t that quickly, but Ed and Pat had been favored by good weather most of the way. Ed contacted Phoenix Sky Harbor with his radio. We're ahead of the captain!" he called to Pat, then. "They're just coming down from Denver, but we'll land half an hour before they do!" "Oh, Ed!" Pat was nervous. Jittery. She couldn't say why, except that Jimmy had specified nothing in ordering her west again, and she was afraid there might be further embarrassment or trouble. Nearly 10,000 people had gathered at Sky Harbor to welcome the soaring plane, and so Ed wasn't quite sure what to do with himself and Pat after they landed. They just clung near the main hangars on the east side of the field. And then the sailplane caine into view. "He'll come right in because it's getting night and he won't want to disappoint the people," Ed told Pat. Jimmy's tow ship landed unobtrusively, but as the sailplane gilded beautifully down, a great cheering arose. A special detail of soldiers held back the people, but Pat and Ed were inside this ring. When the sailplane touched ground, a small knot of mechanics and officials ran from the hangars to escort it in close. On sudden impulse Ed Bryan grabbed Pat's arm and joined them. "Ed, what are—" "Hush!" he murmured in her ear. "Don't talk. Stay with these first greeters, and do exactly as I say!
