Mhe MacKENZIE feJsJB^Fremire Tojo — He shakes artcfowith his right and stabs with Mrttft — undoubtedly would give ( §ffec> of Nippon's plunder if he ""^H giet his hard'- working ear to keyhole of the Roosevelt- conference room and the reasons for the dramatic s$»£earence, of the chiefs of the -i >e British fighting services m Indian 1 theater. T- tf*a v >,.^ : presence of this noted trio — , _ Marshal Sir Archibald Wa- fveil, Admiral Sir James Somerville Air t"iei"Marshal Sir Richard —is calculated to inspire s ^peculation in Tokyo. The jublQ is that it could mean any tie oE k <iutte a lot of things. Hitler, * himself, must be deeply for the big three of the 1 Irtdfan base would be in qonnection with any ii«d plans involving invasion ttte»Balkans, or mid - eastern opera tis. ie main reasons why Somerville - Perise I/nation has been called in ably are two One is to check he Japanese threat of a great The other is to go over situation and lay plans major drive against the aps 'as ssoon as conditions permit OHe of these days, of course, thf jT,"tJn(ted Nations must launch a ^ mighty attack, to oust the Nippo- s from Burma and open the fa- is Burma road so that supplies be poured into China.

India is just at the beginning "the surnmr monsoon with its i, ( us;lpge of rain which precludes big£, scale military operations for about months. Brave Workman the question of /nether an invasion could be un- f4enaken then must depend m con: degree on the state of the |Eui;opean fighting, since a great ~" >uni of shipping and other sup- B^l-^- - — ^< INI -TOTAL.-QAS6S WITH 3-2O Dort would be necessary. Certainly the reopening of the Mediterranean ship lanes will facilitate operations in the Orient. In any event, the indications are that the Allied High Command ^n process of strengthening the air forces in India and China and is increasing the volume of supplies which are sent mainly by air to the hard hit Chinese. The problem of delivering necessitis to China is one ot fhe most diffcult with which the United Nations are faced. It apparently must remain so until the Burma road is reopened. While Allied production has reached a point where greater aid can be sent to the orient, and a major offensive against the Japs undoubtedly will be staged at the earliest possible moment, there is no indication that the Washington conference is going to rest on its laurels in Europe while taking the Mikado's measure. Up to this juncture the announced aim of America, Britain and Russia has been to finish Hitler off as soon as possible. It wll be most heartening if we are strong enough to broaden operation against Japan at the same time. None can dispute that the longer the Nipponese are allowed freedom to consolidate their conquests, the tougher they will be. The clearing of Burma is going to be a difficult job, for the minute Jap troops are thrown into a foreign land they go to ground like gophers and have to be dug out. The presence of the three Indian theater leaders in Washington is a furthr mark of the Allied coordination of every effort which is achieving such marked success. That's encouraging to the United Nations peoples. Fights Last Night By The Associated Press Cincinnati — Jake Lamotta, 100, New York, stopped Tony Ferrara, 150 1-2, Brooklyn (G). Elizabeth, N.

May 13 — (fT) — A national coordinator for all sports, umorcd for nearly a year, is likely > be named by President Roose- elt within a month, and U. S. Sentor James Mead, who advocaled anccllalion of the World Series nd all star games less than three unths ago, is the leading candi- ale for the job. Word on the early appointment f such a sports officer, whose big ob will be to decide how the na- on's sports "can be handled with- ul affecting the war effort," came ist night from Herbert Bayard wope, chairman of the New York ,acing Commission and consultant n public policy to the War Deparl- nenl. In a speech at a dinner closing ie two - day meeting of the Na- onal Association of Slale Racing ""ommissioners, Swope pointed oui Iso that racing has received a reen li.ijhl from Washington, since oth Rubber Administrator William effcrs and Defense Transporla- on Boss Joseph Eastman have old that operation so the turf is eing carried on this year -with 00 per cenl coopcralion with the var effort. Less than a year ago, Swope re- •noved himself as a possible can- lidale for Ihe office of Sporls Co- rdinator because he felt he was oo busy with has various j^bs ;>s racing commissioner, War Dupart- nent consultant, head of the Turf Committee of America, which raised the turf's $3,000,000 contribution to the war effort in 1!)42. ind one thing and another. At this writing, Senator Mead, 'rom Buffalo, N. Y., is su.nposed to iave the inside track on Ihc job Swope turned down. Mead is a vice-president of the Buffalo (In- .ernalional League.! Baseball club. Mil on March 1 he came out for cancellation of baseball's two fanciest shows for the duration to relieve Ihe strain on the nation's :ransporlalion system. Laughing Larry MacPhail, who made Ihe Brooklyn Dodgers tick until the Army took him last fall, also was mentioned for Ihe job. but it was learned no man in uniform would be considered. Representative Sam Weiss of Glassport, Pa., neaivPitlsburgh, also was reported among possible candidate's. And Ex-Mayor Jimmy Walker of New York, father of this state's boxing and Sunday baseball laws, has been given serious consideration. 'There is no doubt a sports co- rodinalor is necessary," Swope said. "Many sporls did not lake Iheir problems to Washington early in the war and Ihey have suffered. "I doubt if the appointment will be clothed with any authority. The appointee will not be an adminis- tractor or an executor so much as a coordinator. His chief function will be to learn what people think of a sporl and how it can be handled without affecting the war effort. He will be a 'clearing house.' For instance, if a way should be suggested to transport fans to California tracks for instance, he would test it and the result would be cleared through his official agency. The same thing would apply if a betler hour were sug- gesled lo start certain sports events or games. He would suit the problems of the sports to existing condtiions. "He would work with Paul McNutt, the manpower commissioner, Jeffers and Eastman, as well as the Office of Price Administration. "Such a man in Washington would do a lot of good if in no other way than to prevent mis- lakes being made."

Indians Crowd Yankees for League Lead BY JUDGON BAILEY Associated P''ess Sports Writer The Cleveland Indians a r c crowding UK- New York Yankees 'or first place in the American .i-ague. but (here is no way of t.-llin.i: yet whether the tribe is on the warpath or simply doing Us spring movng. In recent years the Indians have moved menacingly in the spring and usually subsided in the summer. Last year they won 13 consecutive games in an April spring and created some early excitement among their followers. On May 2 they were six full names in front of Ihe Yankees, but the next day they went into a six - game losing streak and there is no point in recalling the subsequent, details. This spring the Indians have not been as flashy, have had no winning streaks, but they have not lost two consecutive games. Tiiis may mean they will stick in the scrap longer. They overpowered the W a s h- inglon Senators last night in a floodlight affair 8-2 to move within one game of the pace - selling Yankees, who wore beaten at Chicago 2-1 in ton innings for their second straight setback. Chubby Dean held (he .Senators to six hits and had a shutout till the ninth. He also lost a shutoul in the ninth in his only othci ^tart against Ihc While Sox last .. Dean's pitching was sup- )orted by a 13 - hit altack on the t )art of his teammates, their biggest spree of the season. The Yankees' whipping by the Whit cSo xwas the handiwork' of lohnn Humphries and Joe Kuhol. -lurnphries pitched six - hit ball ( ind allowed only one single after he third Inning.

Ernie Honham. Iho Yankees' :ice who had won Ihree games without a defeat, went the route and was lapped for nine hits, seven of them in the last four 'rames. A year ago Don!) a m won eight straight before he was stopped. The Philadelphia Athletics and Detroit Tigers battled in a 1!>- nning marathon nt Detroit be- 'ore a single by Ned Harris gave he Tigers a 3-2 victory. The St. Louis Browns staggered the bruised and bleeding Boston Red Sox 6-4 with Choi f Nanbs hitting a three-run homer his second roundtripper of the season. It was the \fourlh loss in a row and 14th in 20 games for the laslplace Red Seekers, who made only six hils. f; AIRCRAFT JOBS OPEN For Trained Men and Women For full particulars listen to KWKII Monday, thru Friday 6:fiO a. m.
