St Mil* HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Friday, Juno 25, 1941 Hied 'Holding' War in Pacific Is Thing of Pgsf •i. i Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By MAX HILL Japan's military masters are too realistic to make the same follish pledge's to their people that the Germans once made about devastating air raids. Once Hitler's sat- :'ellites boldly promised that German cities never would be bombed, j They know better now. i But Tomokazu Hori, a rough and tumble Japanese who was educated in California and knows the fallacy of duping the common people, recently told Japan in a broadcast specially prepared for dotnes- i.tic consumption to be ready for such attacks. Hori is spokesman 'for the Japanese Board of Information. Raids on Japan Proper from the 'Aleutians and China are in the ' making, he warned, and then said: "We cannot guarantee there is :no possibility that America and ^Britain will not take concrete steps for operations against Japan." He saw in the Allied victory in •Africa an opportunity for us to drop our "holding" war against Japan and instead wage one which anese found necessary to drive us out. Hori's statements merely echo the sentiment expressed in the recent session of the Diet, which met in an extraordinary session in Tokyo. About the only tangible development — at least the only one disclosed by the short-wave radio —was that the Japanese could expect air raids on the mainland of Japan. There also were several urgent pleas that the people of Japan give their wholehearted support the regime o£ Premier Hideki Tojo. That really wasn't necessary, since the ruling powers in Japan have their own way of enforcing cooperation from the masses. Since Tokyo seems to have sensed the timing of the promised Allied offensive against Japan, there can be no harm in saying that the guess is logical. China most certainly can hold out until autumn — perhaps longer — but after that our policy in the Pacific will be the determining ! factor. We cannot go on indefinitely fighting a "holding" war in that area, whether or not the war in Europe is over. offensive in char- was definitely acter. Despite the fact that he included ;the Aleutians there isn't much doubt that Burma is our logical si-oute for attack. That means China in the long run, just as Hori pointed out to the home folk. He said: - "More than anything, the enemy is contemplating the recapture of :Burma, which is the key to the offensive hi the Far East. We can "think of the possibility of an opening of an offensive from the Burma "area about the time of the close of the monsoon season, which comes some time in October." Until then, of course, we can only .strengthen our forces in India, -keep hammering at the defensive outposts which circle Honshu, the "jnain Japanese island, and see^ to recapture Kiska, the American island which the Japanese took over than a year ago. This may be a sobering thought :for those who think we have an easy time ahead in the Pacific. The Japanese captured the vast and rich Pacific area in less than ninety days. Since then their army —at least the main forces — have been doing nothing but build defenses. In the meantime we have no more than engaged minor units on islands such as Guadalcanal, which is 3,000 miles from Tokyo. The rest of the army, with the help of at least a quarter of a billion Asiatics, has been preparing to ward off an attack. By October, the Japanese will have had twenty months to exploit the resources of Mlaya, the East Indies and the Philippines. I am sure no one is sanguine enough to believe we can retake this territory in the short time the Jap- First Assault (Continued From Page One) the sky full of Lightnings and Messerschmitts. Another credited with two enemy victims was Capt. Otto H. Wellcnsiek of Dunbar, Neb.q Second Lieut. Charlie W. Brown of Reno, Nev., got one ME-109 for a total of four victims in six days. P-40 Warhawks picked targets as they flew in wide-ranging forays in Southern Sardinia. They strafed ground planes at Capoterra, destroying several, and then swept on to shoot up two trucks in a highway convoy, strafe the La Maddelena rail station, and machine- gun a 100-foot boat in Cagliari harbor. They left the vessel smoking and went on to strafe a two-masted sailing ship off Capo Spartivento, setting it afire. The Warhawks encountered tense small arms fire from in- the beaches and then fought a series of dogfights for 60 miles over the sea in which they shot down five ME-109s. Bomb bursts covered the Vena- fiorita air field and its dispersal areas under a Mitchell attack. The same Mitchells also shot up a flat- topped craft which observers believed to have been a tank landing vessel southeast of Olbia. The Mitchells were attacked by a dozen enemy fighters, one of which was shot down by Gunner Corp. Leo W. Wilson of Arlington, S. D. The RAF reported eight fires were observed at Catania after that Sicilian town's railway yards and industrial district were bombed Wednesday night by Wel- lingtons which also raided Licata. Air-sea rescue planes made an unsuccessful search yesterday for the Italian crew of a Savoia Marchetti-79 bomber which Beau- fighters shot into the Mediterranean the preceding night. Only the wreckage of the victim was found. Travelers Muff Chance for Tie With Nashville By The Associated Press The Nashville Vols came closer than your next income tax payment to dropping into a virtual tic with Little Rock for the Southern Association lead last night when the Travelers won the first game of a double - header, then started off in front in the nightcap. A double-header, then started off in front in the nightcap. A double loss would have left the Vols only one percentage point ahead in the' standings with one game still to be played in the current series at Little Rock. But Jake Mooty stepped into the role of the man who saved the day, and Larry Gilbert — Co. finished the evening still two and a half games in the lead. Mooty also did something no other Southern Association hurler has been able to do in 14 games —hold Sharpshooter Bruce Sloan hitless. Sloan, who got four in five times at bat in the first game, failed to connect in the afterpiece. His hitting streak ended at 30 safeties in 56 trips to the plate. The score of the seven - inning contest was 6-4, as compared to the 13-5 track meet that the Travs took earlier in the evening behind the eight-hit pitching of Wayman Kersieck. Nashville's Ed Sauor got a homrr, a triple and a two- bagger in the opener. New Orleans meanwhile took a firmer grip on fourth place by downing the Atlanta Crackers, 5-4, for the fourth time in a row and running their victory streak to 10 games without a loss. Last-place Memphis took a 12-2 drubbing from. Knoxvillc, while Birmingham lucked into a 5-4 decision over Chattanooga. Today's Barnes and probable pitchers: Judd—No Dud Big Ten Takes Steps to Assure Football in '43 By CHARLES DUNKLEY Chicago, June 15 —(/P)— Each university in the western conference has been assured of the manpower to field representative football teams this fall when Big Ten faculty representatives waived all basic eligibility requirements for the duration. In making this revolutionary decision, the faculty committee bypassed the necessity of rewordinr; conference by - laws merely by making the word "intercollegiate" ineffective.

"While the resolution suspends the existing rules regarding academic requirements for eligibility for the time being by the conference." stressed Aigler, "it is expected that each member institution will continue to maintain and enforce standards in such respect suitable to its conditions in the current emergency."

To date ' "Rip" has won nine games, going the route in every one, and has been beaten only once by one run and another time when his Pittsburgh Pirates were shut out. This is a record matched by no other pitcher in the senior circuit and seems to prove thai at the age of 35, when most pitchers have gone over the hill, Scwcll is still climbing. He had his first chance with a major league club in 1932 with the Detroit Tigers, worked 11 innings in five games and gave up fifteen runs. This beginning may have had nothing to do with it, but he spent six years after that becoming the most travelled pitcher in the minor leagues, shuttling from Toronto to Ueanmont, Tex., to Seattle to Toledo to Louisville to Buffalo before the Pirates finally brought him up in 1038. Even then it took two more years and a change in managers to make him a starling pitcher. In HMO his record was 10-f), last year 14-17 and this year he could write his own ticket if he could choose the number of limes he would get to face the Chicago were Idle but their leading rivals both were beaten.
