Creates New War Ranks; Promotes Seven Temporary Five-Star Grades Given Army And Navy Chiefs WASHINGTON, Dec. 15 (UP)— Attention: Yardblrds. You now have 30 promotions to win before you stand at Hie top of the military ladder. President Roosevelt has signed legislation creating new five-star generals of the Army and five-flag admirals of the Fleet. And he promptly nominated seven of the nation's war leaders for the; positions, unprecedented in American military history. The Cpmmai.idcr-in-chief listed Generals Marshall, MacArthur, Eisenhower and Arnold as his applicants for a fifth star. The new rankings will be com. parable to the British rank of field marshal. Navy Leaders Nominated For promotion to Admiral of the Fleet, the President named Admirals King, Nimitz and Leahy. He still may appoint another naval leader to fill out the quartet of "super admirals" permitted bv the bill. Aiid tile leading contender for the rank seems to be Admiral William Halsey, commander of the Third Pacific Fleet. Although nis promotion may le regarded ns .a slight to Admiral Raymond Spruance, who, as commander of the Fifth Fleet, apparently alternates with Halsey in leading major operations against the Japs'. ; rershing Still No. 1 General Pershiug, who led. the American Expeditionary Force of World War I, still will be the nations ' highesl-ranklngr Army bfflceif holding .the "title "General of the Armies," created for him by a special; act, of. Congress. The-new "super-ranks" have been created to give top American Army and Navy commanders prestige equal to that of their counterparts in the British and other Allied, armies. .' Eisenhower, as supreme commander Allied Forces in western Europe. ,is itheoretically .•.'out-ranked" By his. subordinate, Britain's Sir Bernard Montgomery, who was prompted to JiWtl ^marshal last summer.' ' ' The new promotions will be temporary and may be held only for tile duration of the war. However they renew speculation Reconversion Comes to California U. S.

Poland Itself has had a stormy history. At one time her boundaries Included great tracts ot land both cast and west of It, and even included East Prussia. At other times, Poland completely disappeared from the map as a nation, with Russia's cznrs ruling some parts, the Prussian Junkers ruling others- End the Austrlans holding the rest. Poland did nol exist during World War One. Afterwards, she was reconstructed, but tho boim- dary dlspulc was an Issue then. A commission suggested the Curzon Line as a boundary, but Poland rejected It then, and backed It up with force ot arms against a weak Russian Bolshevik government.
