Seventy air miles across 10,000- foot mountains, Chinese soldlc'rB, in a 83-day campaign, have crossed the Durum border and arc storming the Jap-held fortress of TeiiRyiieh.

Ea'rlier this monllv Prime Minister Churchill salt! the advance Into norllicrn Bur-ma was carried out, in his words "with Ihc object of Riving greater security lo the American air highway to Chinti." Thus, Ihc capture nf Myllkylna opens thc way for two roads lo supply strength to the Chinese forces, one in l!ie Bl:y , onc Oll thc Bround. Both those highways will Ire needed lo keep China's slx- million-man army on ik (ect null! American troops can reach their land In force. Allhougli engineers constnictlnR the Lcdo road are Hearing their last Ian, thc final job will be a touch one. Ilic road has little In common with Iho Uncoln highway. The difficulties of building that strip nf concrete arc nil out of proportion lo lls length. To build one mile of it, engineers are moving, on an average three quarters of a million ions of rock and earth. For that same mile they're laying an average ol 1000 feet of culvert. Hundreds ol rock crushers, jeeps, bulldozers and trucks were shipped 16,000 mlle.s Iron America for the job. The monsoons arc on now, and 50 inches of rain will fall in an average month. That's eight inches more than New York City's rainfall lor n .year. Sometimes as much as seven Inches, that's 800 Inns of water per acre of surface, will spill ever Ihc road in a single day. Hence, u-asli- out.s and land-slides arc frequent. Hospitals usually arc packed with cases of malaria, dysentery and skin diseases. In general, tlic road makes tho best lerms with nature it can i;ct.
