"The entire mechanized Japanese column which entered Yunnan Province from Lashio on May 4 and penetrated deep into Chinese territory may be considered now completely liquidated," a Chinese military spokesman declared.

(UP)—Brit ons approved today Prime Mints er Winston Churchill's warning hat Britain would use gas against Germany if the Germans used it against Russia. They girded themselves for a lew phase of the war in the con- ident belief that as in aerial bombing warfare, they could take what Germany had to give and pay back on an inexorably increasing scale. In one of the great speeches of iiis career, Churchill announced nis portentious news yesterday that Russia had advised him that the Germans in their desperation, might resort to gas against the armies and people of Russia. In fact, Russia has already charged officially that the Germans used gas, apparently as a try-out, in the Crimea. Churchill left it up to Hitler to choose, and there remained no doubt today that the British people backed him up. The Moscow correspondent of the United Press, revealing that Russia had already made defensive preparations against poisonous gas, quoted the Tass News agency that the Germans had fired a number of trench mortar shells containing an unidentified gas in their tryout, and that the gas had paralyzed the respiratory organs of the men subjected to it. On the subject of poisonous gas. Churchill said: "The Soviet government has expressed to us the view that the Germans in the desperation of their assault may make use of poison gas against the armies and Committee Heads Named For Drive To Raised $4500 In County The local campaign of the national drive for the United Service Organization will begin throughout Mississippi County May 19.
