The warehouses on hoth coasts are jammed to the ceilings and storage capacity Is strained to the limit. But the freighters that carry war material and troops to Hawaii continue to come back jammed to the gunwales with sugar that has to be stored. Freighters too small to tempt the submarines, continue to unload at Atlantic ports from Cuba and Puerto Rico and the wharves there are loaded to the tops with sugar. Also the Louisiana and other southern sections crops promise to be the best in years, all crying for an outlet. Some of the moguls in charge of the situation reason that the crop should be thrown on the market and permit the people to can and store away and lay in a year's supply, and others ponder deeply and predict that maybe, somehow and somewhere there may be a lack of sugar next year, and see what a grand thing It will be if we have warehouses bursting with sugar when the shortage arrives. The common sense view point seems to be that our sugar wants are supplied on this continent. It is true that we Import some sugar from the Philippines but the amount is insignificant. The sugar production areas of our own southland, Mexico and Cuba as well as Puerto Rico will never be taken from us. With a sugar shortage In view these sections can step up their production materially. Will it be like the drive for old paper? The freight platforms of the larger centers are bulging with waste paper that no one wants. The government will probably have to burn Its supply. TILE BATTLE OF THE PACIFIC At this time it seems that the contests In the Pacific have definitely settled the value of the battle ships and the bombing planes in naval engagements. In both the Coral Sea and Midway the battle ships did not come into the conflicts. The bombers escorted by fighting planes went out and drove the enemy back or sunk him before the battle- ships gol Ht'ifiti fAnfe. tt seems at this time that the army »fiij Ino navy men are agreed that the bombing ftlane is tire answer to successful naval enga&smefttB, and it Is rtfftbred that the bombers also can settle the land engagements. It has been pretty well setUeid that the side that controls the air #111 control the ground, At least no land engagement has been Won In this war without air superiority. At leapt If there has been such an engagement it has escaped the writer's notice. Another thing that seems to add to the con' fldence placed in the air forces Is fie Work that cnn he done and is being done by the big bombers. It looks like we are only on the threshold of -the possibilities of these ships. These huge warships With their tons and tons of bombs, their cruising length of flight that reaches Into the thousands of miles, bid fair to hunt the enemy.out and destroy him no matter if they have to go half way round the world. The possibilities of these great air ships were never recognized even by as optimistic and alr- mided a man as the late Billy Mitchell. He pinned his fath to the airship but never visualized the size and cruising length of our present bombers. More, we are on Just the edge of the possibilities of these ships. They are being built bigger and bigger. The latest designs make them Into simply flying forts. They carry tons and tons of bombs, cnh fly half way around the world almost, have guns in their ends, sides, bottoms and tops, and can simply shoot the daylights out of any attacker. It also will be remembered that this country is the home of the big bomber. At the start of the •War fengland and Germany wanted only fighting planes. Later they took up the small bomber. Only a few months ago England stated that she did not want big bombers. Now she has changed her mind. Another thing Is that the big bombers are the only ships that can fly to their destinations unaided. They need no transportation. It is an open secret that there is a well-founded belief that our international freighting may In the near future be done by airplane. More, this country, as said, Is the home of the bomber. We build 'em bigger and better than any other country.' And It may be that In the end the bomber will win the war. If so, it will be "right down our alley" for we are the parents of the big bomber. More, if the big bombers prove invincible we can fill the skies with them before any of the enemy countries can get into production. They don't know how to build the big birds, nor how to fly them. Also some of the best naval minds speak against the big airplane carrier. They claim It can be sunk by the bombers. When your big airplane carrier goes down find sixty or seventy planes with it, you have suffered an irreparable loss. If carriers are to be used the call seems to be for smaller carriers—having a dozen or more planes. If one Is sunk there are many left. Also they are more maneuverable than the huge vessels. Therefore It seems to be the small airplane carrier and the bombers for naval conflicts, and big bombers and small fighting airplanes for land. The nation that rules the air rules the world.
