(While DeWitt Mackenzie is 'on vacation, this daily column is being written by Max Hill, former chief of the Associated Press Bureau in Tokyo). MASSACRE BAY, WHERE AMERICA CARTED ATTU ATTACK By MAX HILL Another brief but important session of Japan's diet is scheduled lor this week, and we should weigh - carefully all the Tokyo radio sees i'fit to broadcast about the proceedings. '/" Naturally, the announcement" J will be larded generously with f^f'- propaganda specially concoted iX lor consumption by the United Na- '.tions, but most likely we can find »,,,- -<< at least a clue to the true reason |f lor this emergency three-day ses- »V-sion. »• It is logical to assume that Pre"- ' mier Hideki Tojo and his henchmen already nave mapped a plan ot action, and it is now up to the 'diet to voice enthusiastic approval, whether willing or not. Such rubber-stamp actions arc the rule and not the exception for Japan's so' called legislative body. A Japanese once pointed out to me the great 1 stone building in which the diet meets as the "tombstone of a de- 'mocracy." He was right, 100 per cent. Tokyo's broadcasts already have used all of the old, familair phrases about Japan's immutable purpose, a perfected "structure for ' total national mobilization," ?|a nd "reorganization of enterprise." But all of this can be cut away ' by qualified students — and we I have several — leaving at least the germ of truth. For an example, it is not necessary to go back into history farther than November, 1941, when a special session was • helf just before Pearl Harbor. That "American newspapermen and our diplomatic corps were there to report on what happened. ,) The Japanese had a neat scheme " to see that the session-was "prop* * erly" presented in the world's <*" • newspapers. They made Foriegn " Minister Togo's speech available 7 several days ahead of delivery. It " was packed with talk of peace. Premier Tojo's address — Not available until delivery — was in an entirely different tone, and in a voice shrill with hatred he gave what he said was Japan's program —successful conclusion of the China incident and establishment of the co-prosperity sphere. He said bluntly, too, that the Anglo- American blocakde was an un'. declared form of war. An over-confident and carefree America — and Britain — concluded he was just talking wildly through his Army hat, and didn't heed this plain warning Japan might strike. Japan now must be facing a serious food situation; otherwise she wouldn't be talking about the necessity for increased production as a reason for this special session. Her exhausted volcanic soil and a critical lack of fertilizers undoubtedly are two of the key reasons. The soil is so acid it must have neutralizing fertizers, and they just aren't available. For the most part Japan's homo front is strong, but there are several fundamental weaknesses, such ui as the ability to produce food and CHICHAGOF HARBOR SARAHA CH/R/KOf POINT MASSACRE (U. S.

Once Proud New York Giants Are Now on Bottom BY JUDSON BAftEY Associated Press Sorts Writer The New York Giants, once the proudest team in baseball, are brushing close to the bollom of Ihc National League and rapidly becoming an object of scorn both for the fans and for rival clubs. In two doublchcadcrs over the week-end the groggy Giants lost three out of four games to the hustling Philadelphia Phillies and dropped within half a game of last place.

Any substantially deeper cuts, he said, "could prolong the war by six months." He acknowledged that pressure was strong for some resumption ot civilian consumer goods, particularly from legislators who have been informed by retail and wholesale businessmen that they face shutdowns unless they can restock their shelves. Estimates of military needs sub milted by the armed services al ready have been "cut to bedrock,' he said — cut so deeply, in fact that complaints from the Army Navy and Maritime Commission spurred WPB to seek 1,000,000, additional tons of steel production in July, August and September, as disclosed Saturday.

Asked whether some of the agencies had boosted their estimates of need deliberately to hedge against the paring process, the ofticial said there was probably "A little inflation," but that WPB's requirements committee had squeezed most of the surplus out. Such inflation was mentioned in WPB Chairman Donald M. Nelson's 1942-43 production progress report made to President Roosevelt shortly after the turn of the year, and made public in part by the Office of War Information late Saturday. Nelson said arms production schedules were in some cases set above Ihc true objectives by the services in order to strengthen their claims in the competition for materials.

Elmer Stem^. ^^ ^ ^^ Machmjst - s Washington, June 14 —(/I 1 )— Another uneasy trance settled over the nation's coal fields toduy as the three-way wage - production struggle among John L. Lewis, the government, and the coal operators entered on what may be its climactic week. About 2,200 Pennsylvania and Alabama miners agreed to return to the pits after a brief walkout in protest against the $l-a-day fines ordered assessed against them by Interior Secretary Ickcs, as government operator of the mines, for their participation in the June 1-5 strike. Ickes later modified his order to permit refunding of the fines. Meanwhile an anti - strike bill whipped through Congress during the tense coal negotiations wus headed toward President Roosevelt's desk. Speaker Sam Rayburn and Vice President Wallace are expected to sign the legislu lion today and send it to the White House. Given final approval by the Senate Saturday night, the measure would forbid strikes in government - operated industries and seek to curb walkouts in prviatc plants or mines. It provides fines and prison terms for any person convicted of instigating or encouraging a strike in a government - operated plant or mine, and legislators said during debate it frankly was aimed at Lewis, whose United Mine Workers' latest truce in their fight for higher wages is due to expire next Sut.urda midnight- Spokesmen for the American Federation of Labor and the Con gress of Industrial Organizations declared they would appeal directly to the president that he veto the measure. The president has ten days to approve it, veto it. or let it become law without his signature.
