Navy Secretary Cites Supply Pr6blem in War With Japs SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. ;10. lrP>— The supply problem in the war against Japan is three times that of the war in Europe, James Forrestal, secretary of the navy, eald here today. "We. have ihe power now with which to heal the Japanese." Forrestal added, "but the transport of that power is our problem." Commenting on reports o[ Japanese ship and plane losses. Forrestal said the United States Xavy has "sufficient .strength to enable us to seek battle with the Japanese at any time and any place." "Admiral llalsoy and General MacArthur have been clipping the Japanese under both ot their barbaric ears in the past two months," he told a press conference. "These successes, while imposing, cannot be regarded as an indication of a quick victory. There Is still a good part of the Japanese navy left and from three and a half lo four million fighting effectives in the Japanese army. "There isn't any question but that the Japanese, know they are thoroughly beaten if our national will is sufficient to carry through, and I suspect that all that they now count on is the hope that we shall be bored with war when the German end of this war is finished. "The Japanese hope we are going to let them off the hook. I believe they are badly mistaken."

"We need ships that are ready to fight when they arrive. Two years ago our top priority was for destroyer escorts. Last year it was for landing craft. Now our only real lack Is assault shipping." Forrestal said he did not know when the Pearl Harbor inquiry would be finished or whether the results would be made public immediately. He said it would be presumptions for him to comment on the effect of Japanese advances in China. Asked about a story published In the Seattle Post-Intelligencer to the effect that the Russian government is operating a "rendezvous" port on American soil, Forrestal said the Russians had been given facilities for an "assembly point for cargoes and supplies." but that it did not constitute a military base. POLISH GENERAL OUSTED IN MOVE TO PLACATE REDS LONDON, Sept. 30.
