Troops Make Vital Gains But British Drive Is Slowed Hi' (Milcci Germany and Japan never have contemplated any union of interests if by chance they should win the war. Rich wants to be top do., mid each knows Uic other's mind in that respect. But by now, japan and Germany probably realize that if llicy don't hang together llicy are more likely lo hang separately. There is more evidence of actual cooperation between the two Axis powers than at any time .since the witr began II Duce Calls in Japs Japanese experts are reported to have been called in by Mussolini lo help fortify the Mediterranean islands which could be iised us Allied attack bases against Southern Europe. Tlic Japs are masters in the art of oceanic or amphibious war and (he European Axis is putting the Jap knowledge lo use. Japan, in turn, seems to be adopting the German air technique of building separate and complete air forces for use'in different theaters of war. And Germany appears to have given its full approval to Japan's murder of the American fliers who bombed Tokyo. Tills new cooperation between the Eastern and Western Axis powers blossomed today into a statement by a Jap embassy official at : Shanghai that Nippon i'iitends to . relieve Allied pressure against- Germany and Italy. "" v ";.'-.••• According to thus spokesman, the Japs .will launch an offensive in .the: Pacific." /within the ' : ,net('t'\Yfc|w'. jhonths. 'Presumably !ie.-'meriiit"' : u/ creale the impression lhat as sc-on as the Allied nations are fully engaged in the impending offensive'! against Europe, Japan will strike in the Pacific. Siberia Unmenllonecl Almost too carefully, he'Insisted that the Allies arc incapable of sending enough rcinfoiceniciils to Australia and India (o guard against Jaapn's next thrust. There was no mention of Soviet Siberia in this outline of Japan's alleged plans. The Nipponese may be playing some kind of sly game. Tlic recent 100-planc Japanese raids on Allied positions iu the New Guinea area could have been a camouflage to divert attention from the Siberian area. The fact that American fliers blasted huge gaps in the ranks of the Jap aerial armadas was fair proof lhat there is little wrong with our aerial defense in the Southwest Pacific. Japan is strong down there. But all her preparations in that area seem to be primarily defensive— which would fit into any plans the Japanese may have for an assault against Siberia. There are many reasons for a Japanese attack against the Russian Maritime provinces. Hitler could ask for nothing more from Japan if the Nipponese force Russia to fight on two widely scattered fronts at a moment when the i Soviet is fully occupied with the I war against Germany. Kussui ,\ Threat From Japan's own viewpoint, IK Hi dim Stilwcll and Cliennault peeled To Ask Planes For China For K.v ii'm'ictl I' United stales commanders of ground and air forces in China arc in Washington today for an important conference willi Ihe Army chief of slaff. Lieut. Gen. Joseph Stilwell, ground commander, and Maj. Gen Claire Cliennault, air chief, are ex- pcclcd to ask for more planes for the Chinese war theater. Their meeting with Gen. George Marshall follows by a month a similar visit from high ranking officers of General MacArtlnir's slall. It is no secret that General ChennaiiH, the former chief of the famed . Flying Tigers Ls in favor of saturation raids on .Japan, once he can operate bombers from bases in China. On the Chinese front ilself. Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek .says Jnpjin has been guilty cf a "Chinese • Lidice."

The Japs have possession of all bases in the Southern Pacific from which the Allies could bomb Japan. They arc steadily pushing Ihe Chinese armies back from the China coast in an effort lo deprive Ihc Allies of air bases iu thai vicinity. And they arc holding fast to the Aleutians despite a constant rain of bombs (o prevent American air operations from Alaskan bases against Japan. That leaves Soviet Siberia with its big air bases within easy bomber range of Tokyo as the only potential bombardment threat lo Japan's home islands. If Japan feels lhat she is cap able of holding her soulhwcstcn defense perimeter with rccrnl re inforcemenls seiil into that theater she may assay an attack on Eus- sla. One of her biggcsl air flcels Is deployed along the Manchurian- Sibcrian frontier and her army in lhal region Is considered "Tlic 1 Japanese Army. If the Jap bliU against Russia failed—and it would have to be a blitz; If Russia's Siberian armies held fast, all of Japan's big cities would be brought under a blanket of Russian, and no doubt Allied bombs. But if U -succeeded, Japan would consider herself almost immune lo future bombing attacks. Tlic prospects of success might goad Japan Inlo laking Hie risk. tiles May Be Held A Osceola Sunday For Mrs Willie Mae Parnell OSCEOLA, Art~A|>ril 23-Mrs Villie Mae ['arncll. wife ol Pau 'arncll. died yesterday al hei omc near Victoria.
