UONOHUE • of Tlniled fin* The mighty sweep of bomber planes over Kurope is itpl to olm'iirc the I'iict lluil Ihci-o is a I least one front in this wiir where the Allies do not have the initiative. Thai front is China. For nearly six yearn the gallant, hungry, ill-et|iii|>pc(l armies of China have been battling on—at times with liltle more lhan their own courage—against Japan's modern war machine. Now, China faces? her graves!, crisis. The are battering 'their • •' way foiwnrd along a broaci Irtnt through Ihe Yangtze River valley in a westward drive toward Chung- king. And . Iherc arc indicalions lhat Ihc Japs also might launch a similar attack eastward toward the same objective from Burma. The purpose of Japan Is twofold: First, lo lake from China her richest rice-producing area in Hunan province; second, to deprive the Allies of all bases from which air attacks could be launched on Nippon. If the first objective were accomplished. Japan could sit back and watch a China that already is painfully hungry, starve lo death. If both were accomplished. Japan could feel secure for the first lime against .sustained air.attacks, save for the eventual possibility of bombardment from Siberia. Siberia Would He Next It Is safe to say that if. Japan atlains her objectives In China, she will begin direct preparations for an attack on Siberia to complete the security ring she is attempting to forge In all directions around her home islands. The strength of the Japanese offensive from Ichang and tlie^tn- eroy's liberal use of bombers and tanks indicate strongly'that Japan has decided to pnllih her offensive horns elsewhere and con- .•?ccntrAle °n China..

The Jap generals presumably are-under orders to make this drive stick at all costs and lo do it quickly. ' l Japan fears an early collapse of Axis resistance in Europe, releasing vast numbers of Allied planes, ships and men for the assault on Japan. She knows that unless she consolidates quickly and expands tiie defense circle around her islands she soon will be get- ling what Germany is undergoing right now. t'binese Regain Ground Last Spring, the Japanese undertook li multi-front oitensive design- r.d to knock China out of the war. They wrecked many cities and towns and destroyed installation* at .several airfields from which bombers could reach Japan. But Chinese counter-attacks regained nearly all of the lost ground. The reason, obviously, was that most of Japan's .striking i power heavily engaged in the South and Pacific. Now, however there i.s no major land front in ihc Pacific area, save'perhaps for New Guinea, lo occupy Japan. Many of the crack troovj unils which moved south with incredible speed (luring the early days of Ihc war probably have been pulled back lo finish off China. The problem of getting American aid lo China lest she collapse is pressing and immediate Dut Ihc difficulties in the way arc cnor- Edsel Ford Dies Today Of Illness DETROIT. May 28.

General Wavell's Ill-falcd expedition against Arakan on the western Burma coast was an Indication of the difficulties in the way of an Allied Burma Invasion. : The country along Ihe India frontier from which an attack might be launched Is almost Impassable. 'Ilie only likely route of attack is from the Bay of Bengal against Rangoon and up the Irra- waddy della. But we have not got .sufficient naval strength just now to attempt nny such undertaking. And that brings us back to the reasons for the "global strategy" which revolves avoimd the defeat of Germany first. When Ilic Mediterranean Is entirely cleared—perhaps with an assault on Sicily, Sar- dtnln nnd the oilier Italian Islands—the IJrillsh Mcdllerranean j oj)s i liu | .asked for a union shop and a .wage boast of 20 cents nn hour. The board flatly turned down Ihe union shop request. Tlic recommendations become effective In 30 days unless changes arc ordered by Stabilization Director Byrnes. The pay Iroost would add abou' $204,000,000 lo the payroll of the nation's railroads. But Ihe board says the increase is within existing price stabilization structures and confoims wilh ihc economic stabilization program.
