By DeWITT MacKENZlE One of the best pieces of news to come out of China in a long time is the formaUdcclaration by the Chinese Communists that they will stand by the government "until Japan and her Axis partners are defeated and construction of an independent, Democratic China is completed." This announcement means that the Red Armies in the field — and there are sevral of them will fight beside Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek's forces to the end. It means on the face of it that settlement .. of the dangerous political fight between the Communists and the central government may be postponed until the conclusion of the war. That's of the utmost importance not only to China but to the cause of the United Nations. Sooner or later there must be a show down between the Reds and the central government to determine whether the Communist party shall be permitted to exsit along with General Chiang's Kuomintang (Nationalist) party, which is the only one recognized officially. Should this show - down come while the war is in progress it might easily produce a catastrophe. This quarrel is no academic conflict of words. There have been many clashes at arms be tween the Communist led armies and the central government forces notably in the summer of 194( when bloody dissension invaded the Chinese ranks along the Chino Jap battle-front. China's gravest hour of trial ii her conflict with the Japanes 1 lies immediately ahead. She is woe fully weak from every point o view. About her only resources ar manpower (for which she lacks equipment) and unlimited courage and determination. Her ,task is to keep herself from being knocked out pending the time when the Allies can give her adequate aid. The present Jap offensive along the Yangtze towards Chungking may provide the c r uc i a 1 test. Should the Nipponese capture Chungking and overrun the surrounding territory it might to all intentse end the Chinese - Japanese war. The period of emergency may last for some months before the United Nations can launch a ma jor blow at the Japanese on the continent and thus relieve the be the link with victory. It's interesting that the Communist declaration coincides with Moscow's action in dissolving the Comintern which years ago labeled itself the "general staff of world revolution." In connection with its promise of support for the government, the central executive committee of the Chinese Communist party endorsed the Moscow move as hastening the defeat of the Axis powers.

Braves, Phillies May Have Tough Time in Future By SID FEDER Associated Pr^ss Sports Writer It may be a little early to say the honeymoon is over for th e bewildering Boston Braves and the high-flying Phillies, but off the developments of recent days there are indications the bride and groom arc getting ready to start fighting over the biscuits, anyway. This is not to say the Phils :'nd the Bostons are about to nose-dive right out of the stratosphere and head back to their old stomping grounds down among the old shoes and the empty barrels in the rear. As a matter of fact, they'd have a tough time getting past Jimmy Wilson's woeful Chicago Cubs and Frankie Frisch's pathetic Pittsburgh Pirates, who are having a high lod time — well, a time- anyway — trying to sec who's going to get lower in Ihe National League's sub-basements. But when the Braves bowed to the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 in ten innings yesterday, and the Phils blew a five - run lead to hand the Cincinnati Reds an 11-8 win, it marked the fourth loss in the last five trips to the post for both the Bostons and the Quaker City "darlings". Two of the Braves beatings were by the Cubs, land this is quite a trick, like trying to change a three - dollar bill at your favorite bank. It just isn't done. And the Phils have let the Reds score 19 runs in three games, which might even give the Rhincland- es the mistaken impression they are sluggers. The 11 runs the Reds chalked up in yesterday's Koffee '- K 1 a t c h, for instance, were four more than they'd scored in any previous game this season. And the Phils had to really go to work to lose the ball games.
