Canada. Alaska and Arctic Siberia is a potent factor the Japanese have not overlooked. Russia is satisifed to maintain the present troubled but uncertain relations which prevail between her and Japan in the Far East — but this may not be true of Japan. She has too much at stake to permit the United Nations a probable avenue of attack through Siberia, and she may decide to strike to the north also in an attempt to complete the circle of bases she has around her home islands. This is a factor in the global war which has been neglected recently, due to developments in Africa and Europe, but just the same it is a powder keg which might be touched off at any time.

A 15-year prison sentence given Dock Chancy, Eastern Arkansas sharecropper for an assault upon Gabe Robinson, 56-year-old Crittenden county plantation owner, was affirmed. Chaney's attorney said the assault grew out of a political dispute shortly before the August, 1942, Democratic primary. Also affirmed was a one-and-a- half year sentence given Jessie Craig in Little River circuit court on an assault to kill charge. Craig, a gravel pit workers, was charged in connection with an assault upon Fred Hedgecock, assistant foreman of the gravel operations. The Supreme Court permanently disbarred four attorneys it said had been convicted on felony charges. They were Cleveland Cabler, Little Rcok; Henry Turne Peddler's license fees on persons selling religious pamphlets. The court appointed K. II.

On April L'o the Army and Navy put out a joint and unspectacular release admitting the existence of a radio delecting and ranging device and naming at. Radar is a navy code word meaning, logically enough, "raclio-detectin:;-atid- anging." Possibly never has such a remarkable instrument boon camouflaged under a more wooden title. The British previously had broken down their equally barbed restrictions lo some extent and this undoubtedly influenced the American decision in favor :> f disclosure. But there were other reasons, too. Man skilled workers in radar construction wore being caught in the draft or were under other compulsion to get into uniform. Neither their draft boards nor their sweethearts had been told the vitally important nature of their work. From that point of view, publicity about radar \v;is urgent. Moreover, thousands of recruits were needed for radar operation and these had to be raised by re- cruting, which means publicity. So lions as well. The central figure, is that early work, and the man who literally bogged, borrowed and stole when necessary to transform his ideas on radio into reality, is a slight, baklish, onetime physics professor whose professional career began in 11)03 at the University of Wisconsin.

Hesterly, $400; Allen Green, $800: Mrs. H. C. Lochler, $150; H. Peterson, $150, and Garland Nichols, $42. A Garland circuit court judgment awarding workmen's compensation benefits to Mrs. Martha Neal of Hot Springs against the Heron Lumber Co., and its surety was affirmed. The court held Mrs. Neal was entitled to benefits for death of her husband, Ben Neal. a sawmill worker who was injured in a sawmill accident July 3, 1041. The Tribunal took under submission for probable decisions next Monday suits by the Jehovah's witnesses attacking validity of ordinances by Hope, Helena and Sheridan imposing the Naval here. It is characteristic of him that when lie is questioned about hi.s part in the creation of radar, he speaks first about Ihe work of the men who helped him. Their story is an integral part of his own. Taylor's direct contributions to radio detection dealt mostly with the fundamental discoveries of how radio waves behave and with soiiie of the first crude instruments and oxpericmcnts. As the Naval Research Laboratory expanded and Taylor's duties became more complex, it fell to the it of a younger genius lo develop iie first modern radar equipment ml perfect many of the improvements which have made it a battle nstrumcnt of uncanny precision. Kobret M. Page, sensitive, sott- ilccd chief of a research section >f the laboratory's radio division, credited by his colleagues with doing more for radar's technical progress than any other man on the'slaff. The naval research laboratory, at which these men and their colleagues still work on the advancement of radar, is, of course, a regular naval station and 'thus is under command of an officer. The present chief is Admiral A. II. Van Kcurcn, a veteran of many ycai:; service both at sea and ashore. Previously he had served as chief of the Bureau of Construction and Repair and Bureau of Ships. Van Keureu succeeded Rear Acl- mir;»l Harold G. Bowen at tt?o laboratory. The records clearly indicate that it was fortunate for radar and therefore for the country that Bowen got interested in the labora enthusiasm always has been to get hold of and promote sound but revolutionary ideas; the depths of his belligerent soul are stirred most violently against conservative preference for keeping things the way they are. A vigorous and confident missionary of progress, Boweu was one of a handful of farsightcd men who campaigned for years to sell Radar to the fighting navy and lo Congress, which as usual held the money bags. He cut red-tape and regulations to deal frankly on radar with members of the House and Senate appropriations committee. They came through in the grand manner. "They were mighty impressed with what they learned, and they offered us a hundred thousand dollars," he said. "That was in 1U.'15. We look it. and it was all we could use at that lime. You can't buy inventions, you know. All we needed then was a little money for salaries to Increase the staff a bit." About 1SMO, when the crash of falling Franco was heard across the Atlantic, Ihe appropriations grew in keeping with the increasing importance of the laboratory's preparations for war. The Institution that had started out as a single gray concrete building rising nlone out of the Potomac river mud flats below Washington blossomed, after 18 lean years, into ft thriving center of naval science In many Helds — the only place of its kind in (he world. Bowen performed another important function, too. He interest ed industrialists in the manufac- lure of rnclnr equipment and thup rlcared the way for its production :in a quantity basis. The first radar sets went into the fleet, in the Pacific, in December, 10-10, n year before Pearl Harbor. Skepticism as to their vnluc vanished rnpdily as they went on ship after ship and proved themselves by amazing performance. Thus officers and men were ready to use them to the fullest when war came, and in bottle they proved themselves nil over again, enabling our warriors of the sea to pull off feats they had not drcnrned possible in pro-radar years.

That makes it possible to report now the proper relationship between British and American radai development and to disclose that while official myopia might have stalled American progress except for the bit-in-teeth courage of the j tory's work about 13 years ago and scientists, it was a scries of. re- beaan to promote it. searches and discoveries in this country which led to the creation of radar not only among the Allies but apparently among the Axis na- promotc For Bowen became the needed lin]. ; between the scientists on one hand and the navy and congress on the other.
