It had Japan's resources cat- atalogued down to the last pinch of salt. It knew the extent of Japan's carefully hoarded stockpiles of raw materials, Us production capacity and Us potential sources of new supplies. And It warned that with such tremendous holdings, a blockade against Japan could not' possibly bring her to her knees short of four years: ' .•;,._ ._,•',... Well, ; wc're in the'fourth year of war against Japan, and the sea blockade we threw. ?agatnst' the "enemy 'only now is.beginning to have its' real effect.'. •Credit for the accuracy of the British prediction goes to both sides. It can be chalked up to Allied farsightedness and sights dness. Japanese short- •Wlien'they stormed down through the islands of the South Pacific and grabbed the rich stores of Malaya arid the Dutch East Indies, the Japanese had a golden.opportunity to prove us wrong. .

'And why not? Japan was a sea- power. She had plenty of ships, and n .virtually land-locked sea route froni Japan to Singapore and Sumatra and'Bornco. She had knocked out the American Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor. Japan forgot one thing.- She "knocked the' American surface fleet temporarily off-its feel at';Pearl .Harbor. But she ,had hot taken into account the American submarines, -the uhder^ water fleet, thcTSilent service. " . , Silently, the submarines went to work'.. Ships began sinking in the South China Sea while cnroutc lo Japan with loot, In Just two years, pur" submarines together with long- range bonibers, had "deslroycd onc- thir'd of all the ships Japan had at the'start of the war, plus what she had managed to build since. ' Japs Realize Danger The realization began to dawn on. Japan.that she was spending more than she was gaining from her conquered wealth: At the same time, the enemy saw the arm of 1 'American conquest reaching steadily up from the Southwest-Pacific into the'Cen- tral Pacific, bearing "relentlessly- toward her- almost laiid-ldblted South China Sea route. Feverishly, the Japs started a campaign to build an alternate route. They drove through eastern China, to forge a solid land line Irom Manchuria to Singapore. They would build a railroad in China to carry the loot. But the Japs started too laic, j : | They completed the land link across China but there were terrific gaps in the rail lines. Jl was a 4000- mile route, and some of the existing rail lines had different gauges, of tracks. There was one 300-mile stretch between Liuchow, in .southern Kwangsi province of China, and the Indo-Chlna border, that had no rails. There were numerous other gaps inside Indo-Chlna. Tlie Japs tried bridging these gaps with trucks, shifting cargoes from one train to another, while they tried desperately to complete the rail line. j Bui Ihe Japs lost the race. The Americans arc now on the cast coast of the China Sea. The American Navy instead of the Jap navy, npvj dominates 'the South China., Sea, Japan has lost her ocean thprougVi- • fare while the substitute rail H'liij overland is still bogged down. The process of complete strangulation has begun to set in. Japan wasted finished products In sn atlempt lo get more raw mate[ rials, 1 and came out on the debit side. Her ledger Is all red. Only her future is in the black. Stolen Cars Sought Bill Would Let Smaller Towns Own Air Fields House Passes Measure Amending Srafe Law On Municipal Ports LITTLE 'ROCK, Jnn. 17 (UP)— The Arkansas House of Representatives this morning passed, by a vote of 79 to 0, a bill amending Ihe present state law regarding city ownership of municipal airports. The measure, introduced by Hep. Eugene Coffelt of Benton County, would allow second class cities and towns that are Incorporated to own airports. Also passed by the House, 'after a lengthy speech by Rep. Paul Van Dalsem of Perry County, was an amendment to a bill calling for the taxation of bee-owners. The amendment as passed • exempts all persons owning less than eight colonies of bees from the proposed tax. The original bill was Introduced by Rep. c. L. Haskew of Logan County. Longer Dog Training • Another of Haskew's proposals also has been passed by the House. This measure would allow bird dogs to be taken Into the field without gun for training 45-days prior to the opening of the bird season. The present law permits dogs to he taken into the field only 30 days before season opens.. . In the; Senate, ; a bill validating all marriages performed with licenses Issued .by justices 'of the peace —in Mississippi County has been passed..The measure -was introduced by Senator B.

It would be required to conduct open hearings and make public its findings for each eligible candidate for parole. . Lanw's Bills Offered . Governor Ben Laney yesterday introduced seven bills In the Senate and one In the'House—Includ- ing the controversial state police proposal which would reorganize the department. The others concerned consolidations of various state agencies. If the State Police measure Is passed by both Houses, it would permit Laney to appoint Jack Porter of Forrest City as director of the department. The bill was introduced by Senators. Hendrix Rowell of Pine Bluff, Leonard T. Barnes of Hamburg, G. W. Lookadoo of Arkadelphia, E. T. Butler of Forrest City, AU L. Brown of Clarendon, L. Weems Trussell of Fordyce, Roy Milum of Harrison and O. E. Jones of Batcsville. The measure has an emergency clause which would make it effective immediately. Also introducd was Laney's bill asking, creation of a state board of fiscal control. This proposal would consolidate ten state agencies and replace them with the single fiscal control board. The Senate passed four bills during yesterday's session. Two of the approved measures were for the benefit of Arkansans serving in the armed forces. They would permit candidates for public office in the armed forces to take qualifying oaths from military officers anc public officials In service lo take oaths of office In a similar manner.

A low normal profit formerly was our' cents per quart, it was said. The Wilson dairy, which upon stablishment some time ago de- Ivcrett milk both hi Blytlieville .nd Osceola, ceased delivers 1 when he Office of Price Administration orbade its selling highest grade nilk for more than 12 cents vholesalc, Mr. Gilbert said. Although a number of local resl- ents have said they want milk vhether or not It passes Ihe milk rdlnance of Blythevllle, health luthoritles contend thai laws hould be abided by and point oul hat an epidemic, caused by Impure milk, would cause a quick change of any such opinion. Slides May Be Seen . Slides made nt. Cape Girardeau Mo., according to sworn statements :an be seen at the office of Ihe county health unit here, it was an- lounced. It is said the milk graded 55 out of a possible 100 points. The Frozen Food Grocery Is said o receive 3120 quarts weekly from .he Cape Girardeau dairy, said to be. the largest single source available here a I this lime. ' Osceola is having a situation very much like that of Blytheville with no other supply in all South Mississippi County, except the Wilson dairy, U was said loday. Residents there are buying "boot- eg milk" from small farmers having a little extra milk after supplying their family needs. That high grade milk could be obtained for Blythevllle and Mississippi Counly is proved by equipment already Installed in the Wilson dairy and several smaller dairies, it was pointed out. Because OPA grants In some sections are higher than those in this section, it is believed thai the right kind of action would remedy the condition. If the price was raised, the public would not mind, a check revealed, and there would be milk at least for babies and the sick it was pointed out. of the milk as It was received he plant. An Inspection was ina^do of the pnstucrizlng plant to 'judge the efficiency of processing equlp- neut and the care that was exercised in the handling of the niilk. A compilation ,'of these results Is presented on tW enclosed 'photo- static copies. These data have been tabulated from the Individual survey sheets of the producers thiit were visited and of the plant'. \Ve were informed- by the Sunny Hill Farms Dairy' Company that they processed' apprqxi ma tely 755'gallons or milk -daily: bur sanitary survey Included a 'sufficient number of producers to cover 730 gallons Pf the 755 gallons, which is more than adequate to form an opinion of tho entire irdlk supply from this company. The results of the sediment tests', of the milk reviewed at the pasteurizing plant have been filed in your office with the Individual survey sheets and the enclosed data- sheets arc only a tabulation of these sanitary surveys. A study of the milk ordinance of the City of Blythevillc will reveal that there are specific minimum sanitary bacteriological requirements that must be fulfilled before the milk can be sold In Blythevillc. Tlic ordinance also establishes the need for consistent and regular Inspection of all milk supplies and tile penalty for Die snlc of milk n6t meeting the provisions of this ordinance.- The sanitary requirements for the producers are those 'which experience and judgment havo shown are necessary for tlie consistent production of a clean and safe milk supply, and the requirements, for pasteurization plants arc those which are necessary to assure proper, pasteurization of the milk. All of . these requirements must be fulfilled to satisfy the provisions of the milk ordinance and the laws of the State of Arkansas. A review of the compilation sheet for the producers indicate many deficiencies in sanitary requirements. Eight of the twenty producers that were surveyed had no milk barn or milk house whereby the mllkine and handling of the milk could be conducted under sanitary condl- tioas. The others had numerous sanitary deficiencies and practically all the producers did not havo adequate facilities or failed to properly use or keep clean those that they had. On' all the sanitary requirements pertaining to clcanli- icss the producers were extremely icgllgcnt and lax in their luHlll- mcnt of these Items. An indication of the kind of milk received by Sunny Hill Farms Dajrj Company can be obtained by the fact that the rating for the milt was a» maximum o( forty-four joints out of a possible one hundred points. The sediment tests on a pint of milk from each producer was delivered to the p!au r showed the presence of largi quantities of extraneous materia which should not exist in milk tha is to be sold for human consump- "on. The pasteurizing plant of Sunn; Hill Farms Dairy Company! ed a rating of fifty-five points on of a possible one hundred point and the deficiencies were prlmari ly confined to equipment and ope ration necessary for proper pas teurizallon.
