The first actual shutdown because of coal shortage occurred at n glass plant in Belle Vernon, Pa. It's unable to buy coal and several lumdrcd employes have been thrown out of work. In Congress the coal strike provided more fuel for the second day of House debate on the drastic Smilh-Comially Anti-Strike Bill. However, chances of the measure reaching a decisive voting stage today are slight because too many Congressmen want to modify it with amendments. On another strike front, 95 per cent of production is reported to have been stopped a L the Packard Mortor Car Company in Detroit.. The dispute is over the promotion of three Negro workers.

Wilkinson noted that by takini the Russell Islands, our forces wen CO miles beyond Guadalcanal am he added succinctly: 'We won't content ourselves will sitting there." Aussics Effective The Australians on New Guine; have done, a superb job for man months in keeping tlie enemy pin ncd to the coast in the Lac-Sala maua area. Operating as jungl (femmandos, tiiey have obtains highly valuable information on j Japanese troop movements and' dispositions in that area. This Information will be important to the Allied high command in preparing for future operations. It must not be assumed that, our side has only to give the signal to launch an offensive in the South Pacific. The tricky Jap must he watched at every moment, for the enemy, in an attempt to disrupt our offensive plans, might strike out himself—possibly in the New Guinea region. Our scout bombers have noted unusual numbers of Japanese barges along the northern New Britain coast. It is possible that the Japs will attempt to reinforce their hard-pressed New Guinea garrison or even launch a sea- borne attack against our own flank on the New Guinea coast. But the enemy's ability to strike anywhere in the Pacific is rapidly being narrowed by our own aggressive moves and steadily Increasing forces. Occupation of Attu Island and consequent neutralization of Kiska, is almost certain ' to force a revision of Japanese naval strategy. That means a dispersal of Japanese .sea power Into the North Pacific, with a corresponding weakening of Jap naval strength in the south and the southwest, There is a strong possibility of early Allied action In the Thao theater to make permanent the initiative we re-gained with the conquest of Guadalcanal. It is not likely lo wait upon the subjugatoin of Germany and Italy.
