Of course this isn't the first time r any means that the Mikado's tVages have exhibited such tena- fy. More than once in this war £ve seen them battle until the idk man was dead. j^EVequently they make suicidal Stands which serve no us e f u 1 purpose, rnerely because the old iSnogu n code says a soldier is dis- mbnored if he surrenders under "Miry circumstances. In theory the man who gives himself up be- Isbmes a pariah and is an exile "Sbm his motherland.

It means trouble. There could be no more pointed warning of the need of the utmost speed in cleaning up Hitler so that the entire Allied stricking power can be turned against the Nipponese at the earliest possible moment. The enormous force which the United Nations will be able to mass, when once the Axis is beaten, xvill do the job. but it becomes harder with each passing day allowed the Japs to consolidate their positions. The burden of speeding up rests in large degree on intensification of civilian effort. If we provide the resources, the fighting services will do the rest. There can be no lag in production or conservation. I The Nipponese are pretty well i established in their main con- i quests, and it's going to take a ' lot to shift them. Their greatest strength outside of the Japanese mainland is in China and M a n- churia. A Chinese commentator in Chungking recently estimated the Jap forces in his country at thirty and a half divisions say about 458,000 men. The Japanese have been moving troops from Manchuria, but there may be another half million or maybe more there — watching Russia but available too, for service in China — and there are others in Korea. The new Jap offensive along the Yandgtze towards Chungking has raised a fresh" problem for Chinese defense. This drive undoubtedly is aimed * at depriving Generalissimo Chiang Kai - shek of provinces which provide about his last remaining resources. It may even envisage capture of Chungking itself. Should such a program be achieved it probably would give the Japs, control of all China. The Allies would have to start from scratch to fight their way onto the continent without the help of the Chinese army. This would be a task which might take years, but for one thing. That is. air power. The further we go the more certain it seems that air power is going!... to provide the solution of the Japanese problem. Of course all the other fighting services will be involved in a big way, but in trying to look ahead it would appear that there's only one method to wind up the war with Japan in our time. That is by bombarding and blockading the Japanese mainland into submission. This presupposes that air bases will be ^available o the Allies, It also presupposes that the Japanese armies of occupation in foreign territory would apitulate when the homeland had jeen pounded into impotence — hough one admits that there might be'the bare possibility of Jap generals and their armies set- ing up a new regime on the continent and fighting it out.

UP IP mf^^^ mpp (m^ ^B^ ™ ^^^ "We Outfit the Family" Cravens for Forming AVA After the War By MAX HAUL Washington, May 27 — IfP)— Representative Fadjo Cravens <D- Ark.) whose home city of Fort Smith has been fighting the worst flood in its history, favors an Arkansas Valley Authority after the war, he said today; but not one modeled exactly after the Tennessee Valley authortiy. He wants an agency that would | develop the resources of the whole valley, traversing several states, hut he said TVA is too independent, and if an AVA is estao- lished he wants Congress to retain tighter control over it, including its accounting and finances. He praised TVA. however, saying its results were "splendul. ' Cravens was interviewed on the subject of what can be done about the destructive floods in the Arkansas valley. The first thing needed, he he- clared, is to build the proposed Markham ferry and Fort Gibson dams on the Grand River in Oklahoma. He acknowledged there was little chance of building them until the war is over, but he hopes Congress will appropriate the money as soon as possible after the war ends. Army engineers have already designed the two dams and Congress has authorized them, but never appropriated the money, he pointed out. They v/ere planned, he added as part of a unified system of flood control on the Grand river. The Pensacola dam, also part of the system, is already in operation, but the other two are needed to make the system really effective, Cravens said. The grand is one of the principal tributaries of the Arkansas, and has poured an enormous quantity of water into the latter river during the present floods. Cravens was asked whether he would be satisfied with flood control projects alone, or whether he < wanted to see the river dcvelopd j in various other ways by a region- 1 al agency such as TVA. "Flood control is the primary purpose, as far as I am concerned," he said. "But if the dams can, incidentally, pro-luce hydro- j electric power too, that will be | fine." "Do you want to see the development of all natural resources of the valley put in the hands of one j agency such as the TVA'.'" he was asked. "I'd like to see the whole thing developed. It would take years. Flood protection is the immediate need, and we ought to concentrate on that first, to alleviate the floods that are destroying millions of dollars worth of our crops every two or three years." The next question was: "Suppose someone introduces an AVA bill, providing for immediate attention to flood control but setting up an authority exactly like the TVA, with the same responsibility for the whole region and with the same powers — would you vote for it?" "Not with the same powers," Cravens said. "The TVA is not responsible to anybody, but is more or less an independent corporation. Congress has little contro 1 . over them, and in some cases I think they have been a little arrogant. It's a government project and the government ought to have control."
