When Japan invaded the people of the Philippines were told to reject the lulled States or become slaves of the Japanese. The answer to the enemy was that they would be slaves but United Stales would be bark and the island would again bo free. Mr. Morrow said that the reason for Ibis was because the people of the Philippines hud been educated through the American school system. Japan holds the highest rule for Illiteracy with only two per cent literate, China has ten percen literate ind India nine percent. The Japanese people can be educated in less time tjjan the rest if the public school system were Installed, Morrow believes. Therefore our iob in the post war planning in the Pacific is to install the public school system in these countries, he said. Before starting newspaper work in Tokio Mr. Morrow was employed on the New York Herald. He was born Scranton, Pa. and is a graduate of Pennsylvania university. Later he enlisted in the United States Army in Chicago, 111., and left for overseas duty. While he was overseas he received a discharge from the Army and returned to the newspaper field, accepting a position in Japan. In 1934 be returned to the United Slates for a lecture tour an soon returned to Tokio. At tlie beginning the war he again returned to tlie United States where he plana to remain until tire end of the war. - T-Sgt.

With tWO BUCRPBSflll llolllH punes to their credit, the (Minion Wildcats touiKht hit the road to meet the Gerstmeyer Tech Hlack Cats In the Memorial Stadium at Terre Haute. The kick-off Is scheduled for 7:30 p. m. 1 The Wildcats wound up their practise for the Uerstmeyer battle with a hard, fast drill Tuesday night. With their offensive wrapped around Gilman, Curry and Reinero. the Wildcats are Koing to be a hard team to stop tonight. . Ground Work Good Clinton's -work- for far this year has shown on the ground with Curry, and Reienro aided by Enrietta showing a hard driving running attack. Gilman, who fits in equally weil in either the line or the backfield has racked up some outstanding defensive playing against Paris and Westville, neither of whom managed to score against the Cats. Glover and Povlin will also get in a few licks against the lilack Cats from their posts in the line. Expect Tech Tlu-eats Gerstmeyer's major threats a-gainst Clinton will probably be Cian-teo, veteran guard and Machango. fullback, who scored Gerstmeyer's touchdown against the powerful Wabash Valley champion Hobinson Maroons. Gerstmeyer fans will he out in force for the game tonight as the traditional Clinton-Terre Haute rivalry is renewed once more. A large Clinton delegation is expected to back up the local players at the stadium.

The scheduled game between the Detroit Tigers and the Washington Senators at Briggs Htadium was postponed today because of rain. A double header will be played tomorrow starting at 1:30 p. m. (EWT). ST. LOUIS The scheduled game this afternoon between the St. Louis BrownB, American League pennant contenders, and the New York Yankees was postponed because of rain. The game will be played as part of a double header tomorrow. NB WYORK, N. Y. Lady Luck, the weather man and young Joe Wood of the Red Sox all conspired against the poor Brownies yesterday and bo today the St. Louie hopefuls find themselves one game behind the rampant Tigers and with only four games left to play. The disillusioned Browns now must face the Yanks in four games while the Tigers are lacing the hopeless Senators in four and it will be something of a miracle if the Browns can win with the cards stacked a-gainst them like that. Yanks in Fighting Trim The Yanks are two games back of the Browns and with a chance at that second place world series dough, they are going to be awful tough for the Browns to handle. The j Senators, on tlie other hand, have nothing to look forward to except a vacation and the sooner they get it the better. The Browns were to have played their last game with the Red Sox in the afternoon but the weather man stepped in with a downpour and Joe Cronin kindly ron:ieni.ed to Miiy over ad play at night. Tint by time the limwns learned t!at tito Hal Kev.-house: had turned in ,i five-hit. 4-0. nlmt-ont over tlie Athletics for his 28th victory and the pressure was again on the Browns. Then Joe Wood stepped out and pitched the game of his life to make life miserable for the Brpwns and their loyal supporters. He gave them only four hits while the Red Sox unloaded on Galehuune for p 4- 1 decision. The Yanks pounded out a 7-2 v r-dict over the White Sox with F (' Bevens, a second-stringer in r ti-'-and now have their first rt.;n:r":n fresh and ready to shoo' nt the Brownft. U certainly doesn't Ion!, very hopeful for the Brow: n. The Senators wound up their season's hostilities with the Indians by losing 6-4. The Cardinals looked bad loning to Hie Dodgers. 3-2, a;d if they don't pull themselves together pretty soon they'll have their hands f ill trying to beat the Tigers in the world series. They could do nothing with Clyde King, a 19 year old rookie from North Carolina I'niversity and they .made four atrocious errors Maybe they're getting all their bad baseball out of their systeniB now rather than next week. The Pirates dropped one to the Braves 4-3 and are now only two zanies ahead of the steady-goint; Reds who again trimmed the Giants. 5- l, for Bucky Walters' 23rd victory. Bill Voiselle. Giant ace. was for his 22nd triumph but Steve Mesner's homer with the bases loaded in the first squashed Bill's hopes. He has vet to beat the Reds a single game. j The Cubs came from behind to jbeat the Phils. 5-3. in 11 innings, thus miring the Phillies more deeply in last Place.
