The point is that the Yangtze Gorges aren't adapted to the easy passage of an army. Meager reports of the fighting in- indcale that the Japs may be calculating on driving westward to the south of the Yangtze in an effort to reach Chungking. They also are operating to the north of Ichang, which might represent an effort to get at the capital by a route north of the Yangtze. Yesterday's Chinese communique reported a successful counter-attack against the Japs in this latter zone. Of course, General Chiang still has a vast hinterland in to which he could retire with his government and his armies. However, he the strategic port of Ichang on the Yangtze river appears to hold unpleasant potentialities. Observers in Chungking figure that the Japs certainly are out to consolidate important territory along the great Yangtze, and perhaps to make a drive against the Chinese provisional capital itself. In either event, rich agricultural provinces — would be at stake. The Japanese early this year threatened to go all - out to smash Chungking and knock General Chiang out of the war. Whether this is the inauguration of such a campaign remains to be seen. It hasn't gone far enough yet to warrant us in assuming that the Chungking area is involved. However,, it's a harsh fact that should the Nipponese succeed in capturing the capital, and in overrunning the provinces of Hunan and Szechwan, with their wealth of rice and other vital resources, it a comparative wilderness. Thus it is essential that Chungking and the agricultural areas in neighboring territory be held. Its close to impossible to move heavy land equipment into China these days, with the Burma road closed. Virtually everything has to be ferried by air. For this reason one would assume that if the Japanese offensive should develop adversely, the •\llies would rush air power to the aid of Chiang. Our own 14th U.

Certainly there is no doubt of the bravery of the celestials and, apart fro omther considerations, nature has set down some great barriers in the path oi the Japanese. ,:; The bomb-torn mountain city of Chungking lies less than 300 miles by air to the west of the strategic Yangtze port of Ichang which is in Jap hands. However. Ichang is at the eastern entrance of the Yangtze Gorges. West of this city are mountains through which the mighty river has cut the world- famous gorge that in some places is 2.000 feet deep in solid rock. The Gorge and the surrounding mountains provide strong defenses against invasion. True, th e rapids of the Yangtze can be negotiated by powerful river steamers which are built for these shallow, tumbling waters. Junks also are towed up to Chungking, as for generations past, by coolies.

The Bruins, particularly, have impressced every rival manager as one of the standout teams in the senior circuit. Yet they are deep in the cellar with only nine victories and 19 defeats and have been shut out seven times. Chicago has been getting generally good pitching and is third in the league in hitting. In fielding it has made fewer errors that the league - leading Brooklyn Dodgers and is among the leaders in double plays. A siege of illness and injuries has cut into the club's general effectiveness, no doubt, but on the basis of the records it is hard to see how the Cubs lost nine straight in the east. They will be joined by Lou Novi koff. their celebrated holdout when they open a home stand to morrow against the New Y o r Giants, who are in seventh place The combination of Novikoff and Wrigley Field may put them the upgrade, but they will need to sweep all three games from the Giants to ooze out of the cellar. Cincinnati's predicament is almost equally puzzling. The Reds' pitching has been as good as Chief-of-Staff LAUNCHED SEASOM CUICASO cues THGEE Brown Defends Agency on Price Action By STERLING F. GREEN Washington. May 36 —(/I 1 !— Thc Ugh Command of thc Office of 'rice Administration stuck lo.Hs ;tins today through a bombard- iient of denunciation from icssmcn, internal disputes, busi- and >roposals that it be stripped of ils :ood pricing and rationing power. llack on the job after a minor upcralion, Administrator Prcstiss M. Brown defended his agency's $400,000,000 federal subsidy program to cul the price ot meal, butler and coffee by 10 per cent at a closed hearing of the House Appropriations committee yesterday. Brown, seeking funds for the next fiscal year, Supported OPS's system ot community - wide dollars-and-cents price cilings on foodstuffs, a system which was being roundly denounced in tsvo other sessions on capitol hill. The OPA chief asked for funds to pay §1,400 new inspectors to help combat black markets, and or some 5,000 more ,?l,320-a-year clerks for thc agency's 5,500 local ration boards. Brown denied there had been 'mass resignations" in OPA'^ food jricc division. Later he issued a statement saying two resignations tallied its full strickiiig power with negligible cost, taking full advantage ot Ihe Forlresess' ability to carry out high level precision bombing while defending themselves.

As a club only the Dodgers are hitting higher. Yet in two games last week-end thc Reds left 24 runners stranded.
