Another view. r.ljpwcvcr, was that mounting Nazi ' .'/-pressure and (lie menace of a Gcr- ''irian-inspircd coup called for prc Cautionary evacuation of all but ; 'skeleton legation staff. It was re palled that about 150 Americans diplomats and others, fell into Gcr- ri^an hands when the Wchrmacht occupied all of France last November and the Vichy government broke relations with the United Stales. Looked at from Ihe point of view ol German strategy, Finland's sit- 'viutton seemed an integral part of the crisis facing Hitler's "fortress ,0f Europe." Obviously on Ityo Fuehrer's mind And it makes a strong argument 1 for the commercial solidarity of the Western Nations. We have some trouble over here, as you know. Brazil is for the United States, Chile is uncertain, and Argentina is against us. Therefore it is reassuring lo read United Fruit company's statement of the lineup in Central America. These are the Little Americas. "The ten nations of Middle America, our closest neighbors (says the United Fruit document), are our partners in trade and hemisphere solidarity ancl our best cnlranccways to South America.

Let Loser Quit Says Jeffers in Rubber Fight —Washington Washington, April 24 — t/l'j — Two separate sols of referees slopped into the fiery gasoline - rubber war production fight tod;iy amid user- lions thiil when it's sotllcd, the loser should be handed his hat. The issue: Js the synthetic rubber program hurting the Allied air offensive by .slowing production of aviation gasoline? The principals: Undersecretary of War Robert P. Patterson to whom that charge was first attributed: Petroleum jadminislralur Harold L. Ickes who promptly seconded him; and Rubber Director William M. Jcf- fers who omphatcally denies the j charge. | Moving in to referee arc members of the Senate War Invcslgiat- ing Committee and Bernard Darnell, whose committee authored the rubber program which Jeffcrs runs. Recommending that whoever is wrong should resign is Jeffcrs himself and Senator Gillette (D-lowa) who also is read to referee, if needed. As the Truman committee announced its investigation is underway into the accusation that allocation of vital materials to the rubber program has slowed production of vital 100 - octane gasoline, Gillette said: "If the charges made against Rubber Director Jeffcrs arc true in substantial part he ought to resign from his offcie or be forced to do so. If they cannot be substantiated in principal part those responsible for making the allegations should be read to offer their resignations." While indicating that a rubber-investigating agriculture subcommittee which-hc heads would stand b.y while the war investigating committee dives into the dispute Gillette declared the nation is "entitled to know the answers to several important questions." One, he said, is whether there is "any truth in the charges that the War Department has built, huge plants for the production of essential munitions and war materials which arc now in disuse. . ." Chairman Truman (D-Mo.) said his committee will hear testimony Tuesday of WPB Chairman Donald Nelson and Ickes. Jef- fcrs, Patterson and Undersecretary of the Navy James V.

Allied Planes Raid Jap Bases, Sink Transport —War in Pacific By The Associated Press Gen. Douglas MacArlhur's headquarters announced today that Al- glicd warplanes pounded five Japanese bases in the islands above Australia, carried out 18 strafing attacks on .enemy troops in New Guinea, and sank an fi.OOO - ton j ship in the Bismarck sea with a single bull's-eye hit with a 500- pound bomb. A communique also disclosed that Allied vanguards wiped out a patrol of 20 Japanese troops within six airline miles of the big cnmcy base at Salamaua, New Guinea. Apparently the attack was a hit- and-run raid, since the main Allied forces were last reported some 100 miles below Salamaua, although patrol fighting had been noted in he Mubo sector 12 miles below the enemy base. Allied fliers poured cannon and iiachine-uun fire on Japanese roops in the Mubo - Salamaua region yesterday and raided the enemy strongholds at Lao and Fin- schhnfcn, New Guinea; Ubili, New Britain; Tocl, on the Kai Islands; and Dobo, in the Aroe group. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Churchill said in a message to Gen. H. H. Arnold, U. S. Air Forces commander, that British fliers "earnestly look forward to the day when they will be able to fly side by side with their American comrades to attack Tokyo and other cities of Japan." Churchill denounced Japan's execution of American aviators captured after the raid on Tokyo last year as "barbarous" and declared the Allies would "strip this cruci and greedy nation of their power to molest the civilized world. 1 On the Burma front, British headquarters reported that Field Marshal Sir Archibald P.

News of the action came just as Jeffers was in the midst of a squabble with military officails over whether the synthetic rubber program has restarted production of aviation gasoline. The decision to make Grades I tires more widely available was based, OPA said, on information from Jeffers that supplies of Grade II tiros are •'inadequate to meet requirements of motors eligible for them."

The Nazi command also stressed that "the enemy, as expected, launched a large - scale attack" and that, "in embittered struggles which are still being waged, 48 tanks were destroyed."
