DONOHUE ' of United Freu The iiimr/.iiig Chinese have done il iignin. They have stopped tlie Japanese knockout offensive against. Chuiur- kn\K and now are rolling back the enemy's forward prongs along the turbulent Yiingtx.e river. The Japanese defeat raises some interesting possibilities. It suggests strongly that, the Chinese armies have recently been bulwarked not only by American planes and pilots but by American-trainee! fliers who are proving their worth in combat. Note Hie special com- < . iminlmie this morning, which said: "On the afternoon of May 31st. n large number of ' Allied heavy bombers under escort of.

Forty-five employes, their wives and several guests assembled at thc Woman's Club for the occasion, which was proceeded by light entertainment and followed by a buffet supper. Thc entertainment started • wilh slunts presented by representative groir/i of the company. A vocal selection was-given by Miss Sam Poscy, daughter of Allen roscy, local manager of Luxora.

This number anesc offensive definitely has been broken and now the Chinese arc engaged in n general connlcr-of- fensivc alons a broad front. A large share of the credit for smashing the Jap drive must go to the legendary Chinese guerrillas who hid themselves as the Japanese advance rolled over them These guerrillas were mainly responsible for trapping Hie Japanese Third and 13th Divisions when they broke thc enemy's communication lines after the Jap spearheads had passed them by. Now thc route of relrcat for the enemy's Third and 13th Divisions is cut off. The same thing happened in scores of oilier sectors alon- thc front, hamstringing the Japanese drive and laying it open for the Allied bombers. . Political repercussions from the Chinese viclory are likely to be impressive, Thc Japanese propagandists had harped on Ihe Ihcme that china was deserted by her allies. 'Hie presence of Allied bombers and Chinese pilots who were Iraineri by the Allies is direct repudiation of the enemy's charge. China Won't Quit Furthermore, tho Allied nations who look to China as the eventual key to victory over Japan, now can breathe more easily. They r know China will never lay down her arms until such time as her allies can join her -in full force and hurl the Japanese out of Chl- OrTiccs of the court house here will be closed during the funeral hoiir so thai employes may altend Ihe riles, it was announced today.
