As he traveled eastward last night Dewey made four after-dark appearances, speaking to listeners who overflowed railroad tracks, perched on boxcars and stood In trucks at ClarptiKjre and Vinlta, Okla., and at Monett and Springfield, Mo. At Monett, observing that a crowd railroad officials Bald approached 5000 persons had gathered, Dewey remarked that "there must, be a lot of people who want a change In .Vashington." "We're going to have it," came a shout from the crowd. "That's right," Dewey declared. "We're on our way. It's not going to be such a tough job if we have jour help." At both Monelt and Yinita Dewey said lie would always regard the creation of an organization for peace "as an objective and a purpose more si.crerJ than any man's political future or his election to office." Shortly before midnight in Springfield Dewey told a. crowd of about 2500 persons it would be one of the first tasks of a Republican administration to bring home "at the earliest possible moment after the war ends the men who have fought the war." Declaring at Vinita that the crisis has been reached "of a war which with God's help will be over by 'January "!t," the nominee said that the quest ion of providing jobs for returning servicemen soon must be faced. "We have 10.000,000 men coming borne from this war and with God's permission it won't be long," he said. '"Pen million men coming home who want to come home to a country where they are not ordered all day long \vhat. jobs they have or may not have by an allwise group of braintrusters who sit in ivory towers in Washington and think they know how the American people want to live. "What we want is a country with nil Opportunity for every man who has a little business to go ahead with it. An opportunity for every man who has an idea to go out and create a job for himself and a business for himself and more Jobs for people. To do that, what we want is to get rid ot this administration." l Aimee McPherson Dies in Oakland Continued From Pagp One SKCKKT WEAPON—This young liiily is holding one of Uncle Sam's hitherto unrevealpd secret weapons —a land mine which cannot be located by magnetic detectors or set off by electric detonators.

OWI said: All in Japan's Favor "At present, the course of the war in China is all in Japan's favor. Instead of securing additional advance liases from which to strike at Japan by air, the Allies have lost several in recent months." Bven though the number of Japanese planes destroyed is high compared to our own losses. Japanese plants are turning them out "as rapidly as we destroy them and probably can maintain or even increase this production slightly," OWI stated. It added that the Nipponese can now mass their air power in a narrowing theater of war. This is also true on the shipping side, where sinkings of Japanese ships are estimated at 1.500,000 tons a year against output, which, it is calculated, has not yet reached 1,000,000 tons a year. Manpower Asset Listing Japan's manpower aitun- lion on the asset side of the Tokyo ledger. OWI estimates there arc now 4,000.000 men in the enemy army. In addition, there are approximately 2,000.000 available and fit for military service who have not been called up. and about l.HOO.OOO in the. 17 to L'O age group, not yet subject to the draft. Turning to advantages of the Allies, OWI pointed out that the United States alone produces 8000 f combat planes a> month, compared to Japan's estimated production o£ 1400 or 1500 planes a month. Pacific commanders, it said, assert that Japan has lost the power * "for a strategic offensive beyond the range of her land-based planes." The agency added, however, that the possibility of sporadic raids on our west coast 1ms not been eliminated.
