The main enemy plane concentrations are in the Northwestern Solomons, Western New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipeligo, Timor and Amboina. These advance bases are linked to reinforcement bases in the rear by small intermediate flying fields which enable the Japanese to switch their air power quickly from one place to another. The air field system releives pressure on thch- shipping. This is of inestimable value to Ihem since shipping is the weakest link in their military chain. The shipping weakness is matched to some extent by weakness in airpower. Belief in responsible quarters here is that despite i their best effort at replacement, the Japanese now have a force numerically inferior to that with which they slarted the war.

HOPE STAR Experiences of Hempsted County tfarmers have shown that harvesting winter legume seed in Hemp- sled County is not only practical but necessary if Arkansas farmers to plant the winter legumes necessary to keep their soils on a wartime production basis, declared Oliver L. Adams. County Agent. Reports from Cretan indicate i thai production of vetch seed in the i state may be only about half as I great as the 1042 production. This condition', the county agent said, makes it even more important that Arkansas fanners harvest vetch seed this year. While the weather during 194'2 was not as tavurable for harvest- ins winter legume seed in Hemp- sled County as in li)40 and 1941,, Mr. Adains said the favorable yields obtained on farms where careful consideration was given to selecting the seed plot for harvest and to harvest methord:; show that good .yields can be obtained even under unfavorable weather conditions. Mr. Oscar Van Riper of Columbus Community has had success with hairy vetch re.seeding by plowing the vetch in after it had millur- ed seed. Mr. Van Riper has a 10 acre field in vetch now that was seeded with commercial seed in 1940. The field was planted to wide row corn and when the vetch ma- wed the old vines were plowed to the corn. The corn produced approximately 30 bushl-ls per acre and the land rcsecded to hairy vetch. Farmers who have vetch, Austrian peas, bur clover, white clover ii;- hop clover that may be harvested for seed are advised to get a | ropy of Extension Leaf lei No. 33 I (revised), "Legume Seed Harvest," ! which is available at the county Extension office. C. Whitecar Philadelphia. April 5 — i/P) Fred C. Whitecar. 62, financial editor and former citv editor of Ihe Philadelphia Enquiri- er, died last night. He was born in Philadelphia. The oldest known standard of length, the cubit, was the distance- between a ntan's elbow and the tip of his middle finger. Peas Should Be Harvested as Soon as Pods Become Plump Peas are high in sugar content' which rapidly turns to starch, losing sweetness, when they are picked; so that only home gardeners who may serve them an hour or so after harvesting can enjoy their fuil delicious flavor. They give a relatively small yield for the space they occupy, but give it quickly, and may be pulled up to make room for other crops. Though hardy, and withstanding light frost's, the seeds of the wrinkled varieties, which are sweetest, will rot in cold wet soil; so they should not be sown until a week or two after the first crops are put in, when the season has become more settled. Sow peas two inches deep and not closer than two inches apart in ii single row; double rows, six hit-lies apart, with brush or low fencing set between the rows foi the vines to climb, are sometimes used. This arrangement requires weed pulling by hand between the rows. Even dwarf varieties appre something to climb, and the semi-tall and tall growing peas require support. The pea harvest is cut short by arrival of hot summer weather; so early sowing is vital. To get two crops, an early dwarf and a second- early semi-tall variety may be sown at the same time. Tall peas _ive the heaviest yield, but th^y also take longest to nn'.ture, and in states where spring comes late and liot weather is close behind, Ihe tall varieties will not mature in time to escape Ihe heal. Where the spring is early, they may be sown at the same time as dwarf and semi-tall varieties to complete the succession of yield. Peas have a short harvest, and should be eaten or canned as soon as Ihe pods are plump before the seeds wiihin have begun to mature. In new gardens it will pay to inoculate the seed with a culture which seedsmen supply for the purpose, containing nitrogen-fixing bacteria. The soil should be well fertilized with a balanced plant food, at the rate of a pint for a, twenty- five foot row, raked inlo> the top soil before planting. ... Total reported to date $10,931.41 Washington Says U. S. on the Offensive Washington, April 15 — W) — Japanese operalions in Ihe Pacific, mililary authorities here believe, have passed from the offensive stage to one of "aggressive defense." Despite reports of increased enemy air activity, these authorilies said today, there is little danger that the Japanese will attempt to strike against Ausralia or any other importanl United Nations bastion. Theso experts said they were rca- j sonably confdient Ihe main concern | of Ihe Tokyo warlords now, with forces much weaker than a year j ago, is lo hold and develop the Netherlands East Indies, Malaya I and other rich lands already con| quered. | At the same time, these authorities who declined use of their j names, held forth little promise of | early Allied offensives against the i Japanese on a major scale, ex, j plaining the United Slates is com- j milled to such large scale opera- j lions in the European theater that any comparable undertaking in the Pacific /one would ovcrlax its strength, especially in shipping. This does not rule oul heavy naval and air blows this spring or summer — blows for which both Army and Navy have been mar- shall'iiv} and organizing their forces for -;everal months. But it would seem lo eliminate for the time being any liklihood of decisive actions taken on American inilialvc. Inquiries prompted by recent apprehensive statements from Australia about the massing of Japanese ground and air unit in the South \vesl Pacific brought this general summary of the Pacific situation from highly placed spokesmen: The monsoon season is at hand in Burma and with ils beginning all important fighting ceases. General Sir Archibald Wavlel's Burma campaign has made little progress and when the rain ends next fall Wavoll's troops probably will be back aboul where they started from, near the Burmese border of India'. Not being under pressure in Burm.i, the Japanese almost certainly will shift some air units from there into their island arc opposite Northern Australia.
