Japs Making Last Stand on Hollywood RIALTO PREVIEW Saturday Night 11 p. m. By BOBBIN COONS Hollywood — Mr. Charles Laughton, he would have it known, is Ihe victim of a gross canard. There have been stories to the effect thai Chuck is one of those actors who lives his roles. That is to say. when he is as a meek schoolteacher in "This Land Is Mine," he becomes that school teacher for Iho duration. He walks around as that person would, he eats, sleeps, and thinks as if he were indeed thai person. This, if true, would be quite a feat, besides being boring to all hands.

The enemy, as of last Wednesday, held an area of about 15 or 20 square miles with a lino opposite American advancing forci-F about five miles long. Today's communique however gave no niformation on what IKU occured on Atlu yesterday and of ficers'said frankly that all th<\\ could be sure of for Ihe presen was that operations are continuing, tinning. They assumed that the Japanese probably had been driven back somewhat farther in the meantime, although fog and cold might lave slowed clown the American novcment. Yesterday's communique also lad told of operations on tho 19th incl had said that Army bombers itlacked military objectives in the Chichagof area. Thus il appeared that the whole enemy defense line had been undei air attack on Wdnesday. This line, reportedly consisting of strategic heights, caves and foxholes, stretches from Ihe shore of Sarana Bay to Atlu village which is at the head of Chichagof Harbor. The peninsula beyond this line embraces an area of 15 to 20 square miles of rough mountainous country, Navy men said.

May 21 —•(/?)—- Independence - minded leaders of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia are looking to Britain and the United Slates for help in extricating themselves both from German control and the fear of Russia, according to refugees arriving here. Allied observers in this neutral listening post have received repeated overtures seeking a definite statement of policy from Anglo- American officials on the status of the little Republics which have jccn subject to two foreign rules in liree years. These observers said the CJUCK- ion might be one of those on tho igenda of Joseph E. Davies' Irip to Woscow. They pointed oul that if Stalin vould renounce Russian claims on he Baltic states, many of the 5.- )OO.fiOO people there would cerise collaborating with the Naxis and revolt, against them. Stalin's assurance April 4 that Russia desired good post - war relations with an independent Poland was viewed as the type o falemonl desired with regard to the Baltics. Copies of the Atlantic charier have been distributed widely in '.he area, but the majority of Baits thus far are not convinced that Russia's adherence means she ha?, renounced her longstanding claim? against, them. Two hundred years under the thumb of the • Russian empire created a deep - rooted fear among the people thai was further agilat- "d when Ihe Red Army occupied the states in June, 1940, and they were annexed to the Soviet after elections w h i c h independence leaders claim were no elections all. German propagandists have used this fear to obtain reluctant and limited help from Ihe Bailie people, volunteer military logons, workers for German war industries and as an excuse for confiscation of crops. The Germans also dangled before the Baltic leaders a promise thai when Russia is conquered Ihe Baltics would be given conditional independence. The conditions are that, the Nazi Fcuhrer shall have sovereign rights and that Germany shall conduct the foreign affairs of Ihe three slales, although each would have its own representative in Berlin. Experts in Baltic affairs said that while tho countries might be interested in an autonomous status —even with Russia — they want terms more in keeping with the independent traditions they cultivated as republics since the last war. The refugees report that, if the states are nol able lo keep their Boundaries intact and maintain their independent traditions, they will take up arms and try lo fight for freedom. The three countries could raise an Army of 400.000 to 450,000 men. Baltic observers recall Vice President Wallace's recent statement that iho seeds of a new war would be sown unless there was an understanding with Russia before the end of the present one. They add that Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia provide fertile ground for such seeds. They stress the present dissatisfaction with the German regime nun its possibilities in support of the expected Allied offensive in Europe. Th'.' Germans have indicated in a number of ways recently a fear that such moves t . might be made. In Lithuania, which has provided the strongest opposition to Nazi efforts to Germanize the area, a handpickcd "national assembly" has been permitted lo convene to discuss immediate policy. It is the first assembly held since German civil officers began directing the affairs of Ihe three stales two years ago. No such assembly is reported from Estonia or Latvia, and observers speculate that the Na/.is are awaiting results of the Lithuania experiment. Reliable reports said thai members of Ihe Lithuanian group were so doubtful about the reason foi their summons to the capital tha they made their wills before leav ing home. While repudiating Bolshevism ii one resolution, they are reportec lo have demanded a national army with Lithuanian officers. Similar demands of armie have been made by Estonia an Latvia, all wanting to fight for in dependence. Church News FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH Third and Main Streets Rev. W. R.

His work in torpedoing Ihe London Naval Conference won him pro- molion lo the rank of vice admiral. Yamamoto, whose name means "base of a mountain." received the personal congratulations of Emperor Hirohilo for direcling Ihe operalions of Ihe Japanese Navy during Ihe campaign in Ihe Philippines. He also received Ihe emperor's commendalion for the sinking of the British batlleship Prince of Wales and Ihe bailie cruiser Repulse during Ihe Malayan campaign. His stock fell, however, as a result of the Japanese Navy's setbacks in the Coral Sea and al Mid way at the hands of American forces, and there was speculation in America thai Ihese reverses might even compel him to commit hari-kiri. The admiral's empty threat of diclaling a U. S. peace was made public by the Tokyo radio in a Dome! News Agency broadcast Dec. 17, 1941 — 10 days after Pearl Harbor. In discussing a Japanese landing on the coast of British Borneo, the broadcast said: "The strategy of surprise which was carried out by Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, commander in chief of Ihe Japanese combined fleels. with such success, was CHURCH OF CHRIST Fifth and Grady Streets Fred H.

And as for you, Miss America in Khaki, I think your days of usefulness to anyone, including your brilliant Brit, are pretty well nearing an end. You see, we think of everything." There was no reply possible. Brit and Beth were bound and gagged and were marched, with pistols at their backs, hurriedly to the beach and the boat. On the seaplane, the gags were removed, but nut the bonds. Beth and Brit were put unceremoniously into the baggage compartment. "I took care of one of your sentries, too," Rick boasted.

No American sources confirmed the death and reaction ranged from calm expressions of interest to frankly skeptical comment on Tokyo's account of how the admiral met his fate. Some authorities suggested h p may not have been present at all. They said he had been identified with so many Japanese reverses in the last year that he might have committed hara - kiri or he might have died a natural death of some organic ailment. In either of the latter two cases, il was said. Ihe Japanese High Command would almost certainly have dressed up the Navy lead- re's demsic with filling circumstances and glowing tribute in order to maintain his stature as a hero before the Japanese people. There were sevral larg air actions in the south and southwest Pacific in April. In the Solomon Islands the Japanese attacked American shipping off Guadalcanal with 50 bombers and 48 fighter planes on April 7, sinking three Allied ships but losing 39 of their planes. About the same time they heavily raided Oro Bay. New Guinea, and Darwin, Australia, and likewise lost heavily there. New Sunday - Monday - Tuesday the sputter smoothed into a roar, Beth and Brit were jostled together as the plane left the cove, (To Be CoulUuicd). Ninety-five American ships were launched on a single day during Iho first World War. The dat.u was July 4, 1917,
