2 Tuesday, September 19, 1944 A thr«fl-mlnut0 chat with LlcuUnant- Cotnmandfr L. 0. BUnehard. in chtrgt of Southirn California Recruiting Oiitrlct Xo. it wasn't the discovery of a dodo or even n pterodactyl that caused all the excitement at WAVE Procurement Headquarters. However, .some specimens just about ns extinct wore found ; n few Americans who don't believe the war is over. This paleontological scoop was the result of a sailor's curiosity. For some reason. he put a question to several yotmg women who had been just sworn into the WAVES. "How coine?" the bluejacket said. "Here is a war which is practically over — everybody ti«ys so—and you bree/.e in here all excited, and decide to join the Xavy. How come'.' 1 ' The answers came, thick ami and vehement. The naive sailor wrote them down. HP isn't naive any more. Apprentice Seaman Marjorie Gene Hyde, of 1228 S. llimpau Blvd., "bitterly resents all this optimism because when Germany falls the war is only half won." Of course, Miss Hyde may have a special reason for being "bitterly resentful." Her father, Lieutenaiit- Colonel A. C. Hyde, has been lighting in the Pacific theater of war for more than two years, most recently at Sal- pan. The new WAVE continued, "I fully expect my term of naval service to run into years because I believe that it will take n year or more to defeat Japan after Germany is conquered. 1 am sure that my training and experience in the Xavy will build confidence and equip me for better things when the whole mess is over." Apprentice Seaman Marjoric Mae Soule, of 10400 Buford Are., Inglewood, "J'ist can't understand any talk about this being 'late in the game.' As far as I am concerned this is not late as far as the .Navy is concerned." Miss Soule, a California native daughter, won't guess when the war with Germany will end but she thinks the war with Japan will last: longer than our war with Germany. . . . "More than three years to go with Japan!" she predicts. Apprentice Seaman Eli/a- heth Constance Miller, of 1-4.VT Sixth Ave., Los Angeles, has H different slant regarding her future naval service as a WAVE. She believes, "Even if the lighting were to end tomorrow, which I don't think will happen, there still will be lots of important work for WAVES to do. I have a hunch that members of the Women's Reserve will find a big job ahead in demobilization H ud rehabilitation programs." Apprentice Seaman .Tonn Frances Frakell. of 1140 X. Alexandria street, Los An- eeles, guesses thnt the European war will be over "early in 10-15" but claims that the Japanese war is "very much underrated and probably will be going on for a couple of years." Miss Frakell, who has aspiration for a career in aviation or meteorology, wants the. Navy's "inimitable training in these tields to help in fiiltilling my ambitions." Apprentice Seaman Mabel Irene Hepburn, 10-100 Uuford Ave., Inglewood, has a personal reason for joining the WAVES. "I have a sweetheart in the Xavy—I think lie's on Guam right now. If my joining the WAVES will bring him home just a few hours sooner, and maybe it will, 1 will feel thai 1 have done a good job. The war? Oh, Germany should fold up for a Christmas present but. the .laps probably will be fighting for a long time— longer than Germany la-led." Apprentice Seaman Virginia Ann Peterson, of 2](I Cainino de las Colinas, Hedondo Heacli, is a hit of a philosopher. "I don't have the slightest idea or wouldn't care to gue-s when the war with Germany or Japan will end. All I know Is that if everyone in this country stops doing everything now, the war will go mi for a longer time than it should." Evidently these new WAVES have sentiments in accord with those of the Xavy department as evidenced by Sec. rotary James V. I-'orrestal's comment that "the Xavy will continue to expand rather than reduce personnel" and the statements by high ranking Naval officers to the effect that the Japanese war will be a long time irt reaching a conclusion satisfactory to America.

'Surly and mean prison guards hit oifi- fliers in the face with rifle butts," the major said. "Some were beaten badly with sticks and In a^ least one case a rubber hose was used. The boys were beaten about the head and shoulders with pistols and rifle bulls. There were many slaps and kicks and generally rough treatment."

OP)—From an aircraft carrier, Assistant Secretary of the Navy Artc-mus Gates witnessed the recent air strikes at the central Philippines, and he returned to tell a press conference here yesterday that the Palau island invasion would be a pattern for future action against the Philippines.
