' Some 70,000 members of the Mechanics Ediieiilionnl" Society of America, known ns MESA, arc scheduled to walk out In 84 war plants In Cleveland, Detroit nnd Toledo tomorrow morning.

Smith, says Mayor Lauschc Isn't neiilral In the cas e.

He says the strike will take place on schedule otherwise. A strike by 300 members of the 'tame union already has closed one Detroit war .plant, but the Issue Is different. The union says the walkout of these Detroit strikers Is based on the' refusal of the Greclifleld Tap and pie Corporation to bargain over grievances.

Admiral Knlscy for the;, timorous Jap navy. The enemy still hns 10 to ,13 battleships, 10 to 12 large aircraft carriers nnd many smaller ships. Until this licet Is put on the inactive list, permanently, tlie Allies never can mount a- full-scnlc Invasion of the home Islands.. But all'these, theories have their drawbacks. The Navy Is not likely to mount an attack on the Jnp home islands under the guns of enemy land-based air power. Mn'ivy bases must be cleaned up before Ainerlcn can punch straight through to thc Chinese const. And HaUey's search lor the Jnp fleet probnbly was only a secondary nlni of the new rnld. Most likely, thc series of nttncks Is a prelude la some new invasion, perhaps of thc Philippines. American task forces blasted the Mnr- shalls before American fighting men Invaded the Gilberts. They struck thc Carolines before the landings in the Mnrshalls.

Mrs. Worrell's head was crushed by impact ot the hammer which delivered a terrific blow three inches above the left ear, causing a severe brain fracture. There also were bruises behind the left ear, two on the left shoulder and several on the left hand. She never regained consciousness. Worrell has been in jail at Ca- ruthersvilie since Sheriff w. A. Thomas and other officers located Him early yesterday at the home of Ms mother near Haytl. Funeral arrangements for Mrs. Worrell, member of a well known Southeast Missouri family, «er c incomplete today noon with German Undertaking Company of Stccle, Mo., in charge. The attack occurred while Mr. nnd Mrs. Will Ellis and family and two children of Mr. and Mrs. Worrell were in the house. Calling his wife from the bed- room where 12-year-old Jan Worrell was with her mother, Worrell and his «lf c went to'the front porch where screams Were heard a fciv minutes later, relatives said- They found Mrs. Worrell unconscious, the hammer nearby and her husband gone, they said. Worrell drove his car down town and told an officer he had killed his wife, but from his actions It was believed he was joking and he was told to "quit kidding." He left Immediately and a short time later officers were notified of thc crime. After finding he had not returned to the Ellis home, officers later went to his mother's home, where he was arrested. The Worrell family returned Saturday from Flint, Mich., where h c had been employed In a war plant. They planned to remain In Holland, their former home, and were staying temporarily with Mrs. Ellis, sister of Mrs. Worrell, and family. Mrs, Worrell Is survived by her husband; one daughter, Jan; two sons, Clay and Parker; three sisters, Mrs. Gertie I,add,' JSrrs. ElUs and Mrs. W. R.
