WEDNESDAY, MAY G, 1942 Fighting Devildogs Need More Material For Officers and Technicians LITTLE ROCK.—A call for Arkansas college graduates who would like to have commissions in the United States Mann? Corps Reserve was issued this week by Capt. Thomas P. Jackson, officer in charge of the Little Rock district recruiting headquarters. "Enlistments in the Marine Corps have already passed 100.000," stated Captain Jackson, "and there is an urgent need for college graduates to serve as officers and technicians." Young men with college educations, married or unmarried, between the ages of 20 and 27 are needed as candidates for commissions. Applicants having degrees such as bachelors of arts, science, journalism, engineering, education, business administration or philosophy arc acceptable. Men enlisting in this classification are appointed privates first class and enter a 10-week training period leading to a second lieutenant's commission. Graduates of the candidates' class enter reserve officers school for another 10 weeks pf training and then are sent to !in3 duty. Appointments as commissioned officers in the Marine Corps Reserve, for assignment to special aircraft warning- duties, are being now to college graduates in electrical, communication or radio engineering. Commissions in higher grades may be awarded to men with exceptional qualifications. College graduates arc urged to write Headquarters, United States Marine Corps, Washington, D. C., for complete information.

This graceful delicacy is achieved by using a fairly fine crochet cotton —size 50. This thread, though fine, is very sturdy so that the runner will last for years. Why not try making a runner?

You probably^ also thought Japan's military strength was exhusted in the war wth China. Don't feel too bad about thinking that because you were right in step with most of us Amcricns. Why most of iis held such fallacious ideas right op to the time of Pearl Harbor is pretty well explained in John Gucnthcr's rcvi- son of his famous "Inside Asia" •Harper: $3.50), and by Joseph Newman in "Goodby Japan" (Fischer: $2.50). "Guenther completely rewrote his book and made 5000 revisions before it went to the printer in February, 1942, thus making it one of the most complete and up-to- the-minute works on modern Asia and why Pearl Harbor happened. Guenther makes Dec. 7 seem logical in view of our two-faced attitude —saying "naughty-naughty" at the rape of China and at the same time shipping Nippon more than a billion dollars worth of war material. Newman, a Tokyo correspondent for years, does no second guessing when he says Pearl Harbor should have been no surprise. Many of his dispatches support his contention, but America, lulled by' Jal3 propaganda and the "it-can't- happen-to-us" school at home, was in no mood to accept the truth about the Nipponese and their centuries old dreams of world conquest. "Goodby Japan" pictures the Jap war lords a.s no tools of Berlin but rather as Germany's implacable foes. They are convinced they can deal with the Nazie when the day arrives. This book should have been publised before Pearl Harbor, but it probably would have been scoffed off the .shelves. Today it can serve a.s an informative and interesting text on a foe of whom we know very little.
