IHINOHUF, ( United Piess On built Hides tif (lit; disputed I'ueilk- there arc .signs of impending aclioii on a mnjor scale. Japan ;ui(i the Uniled States virtually have completed months of maneuvering fold jockeying Tor position. They seem rciidv to move ;tl any moment, the only question Ijeinj; which side will strike '•'-I. It i.s lilUnj,' on this liret anniversary ol' the full ol' Cor- ii^idor and "its last gaunt Kiirrison" thai the stvcngth ol' the two l)ig Pacific powers be assayed as they line tip for the decisive test. • ' Japan Ls powerful. Let there be no mistake about lhat. Potentially she may be more powerful than the European half of Ihc Axis combined. Since Pearl Harlior the Japanese- have conquered nearly one and a half million square miles > of some of the richest, niosl valuable land on earth. She wrested Irom the United States the Phillippine -Islands, Cltiani, Wake and Attu and Kiska in tlie Aleutians. From Great Britain, 'ihe Jups have taken Malaya, Singapore and HOME Kong. The Gilbert, Elilcc, Solomon and Andaman Islands, and Papuan New Guinea. They also won Ihe Dutch East Indies and Uiey have- conquered Burma. It's almost a year now since Japan seized Hie Western Aleutians— Her., last aggressive move'.* Since lliaC : time, she has labored dili- aciilly and ruthlessly lo exploit and 'd.evclop her newly-won empire, repair the battle damage ami put tlie subjected populations •' to t'lave -labor for her v/ar. needs. Japan has admitted the loss of very few of her -fighting' ships- one battleship,' oiie cruiser, invco carriers, 13 destroyer.?, il submarines, 32 transport:) and seven auiv lliarjcs," But American : commuui- tjiR's 'lipIto' anil including 1 the~lK3if yreat naval bailie off the Solomons in 'November,, list Jap ships sunk as ns follows: Two battleships, si.x carriers, 24 cruisers, 51 destroyers, ami 51 transports. Jap ships dam- a£cd-~soiiic: of which probaoly sank. —Include nine bailie ships, nine curriers, 10 cruisers, 43 destroyers and 4Ij transports. The enemy will find il hard lo replace such losses, But Japanese naval strength remains very large and since Hie American Navy is lighting in many oceans, it is doubtful if we have overall parity wilh Japan in Ihe Pacific. But aur slims, pariiculiirly U:e new battleships, are believed (o be mote Hum a match lor Ihc best that Nippon has to oflcr.

We have begun the long march back by reconquering pans of tnc Solomons and New Guinea, by occupying F-unuiull. Island in the Kllicc group ami by a gruelling war of attrition .that is laKing its loll. Our submarines also have sunk 155 of Japan's precious sinus, prou- ably ;snnk i5 others and damaged •I'l— an immense strain on Japan's shipbuilding indusliy. Our bombers, overworked as Ihcy arc, have done iiicsliiuable damage lo Japan's forwartl outjwsUs Mosquito Breeding Places To Be Sprayed; Mayor Asks Cooperation Jilylhcvillc's malaria control pro- sram is underway in a campaign .sponsored by the City of Blyllie- villc, in cooperation with the federal government, which followed the annual Clean-up Campaign waged last week by Ihc city.

This is but a beginning of the work lo "be carried on throughout the "mosquito months." The crew will go over Ihe city at'•'•ihlcrvsfe—lirobably 'about-.three weeks—at the same time (he federal government's crew Ls doing similar work outside the city limits.

For us, it, has been of offensive preparation; for Japan a year of defense preparation. But it must not be. assumed that ja- pan will content herself with sit- liiiB idly by waiting (or us to strike, bhc cannot afford lo remain on (he passive defense, but must regain the initiative by .seeking to disrupt our offensive plans. May Try New Attacks 'Ilitis, Japan still might attempt a massive blow against Australia or India, or even Siberia, in an ellorl lo widen the defense circle around her home islands. She makes much of the impregnability of her Island empire stretching in a vast arc around the Japanese mainland. But even Ihat.grcat domain merely . in the center of an enormous Allied attack ring com prising China on the wcsl, Australia in Uie .south, the United States in (he cast and, potentially; Russia In the north. Japan's German allies do not seem lo share Nippon's professed faith in her Invulnerability. The Germans arc nudging Japan to pay more attention to Uic Aleutians, warning that the Americans are mounting a • great attack In I hat area. It is known lhat we liavc strengthened, our hand in the Aleutians area by occupying the An- drcanof group and replenishing and strengthening our garrisons In the Alaskan theater. The inten- fish pools nrc being asked to fil Iheir pools but Mayor Jackson pointed out that such a drastic slcp would not be taken here il the owners, would cooperate b\ keeping a close wnlch and provide minnows. Although Blythcville and .surrounding area is having an unusually large number of mosquitoes. Ihcy tiro of Uic pest vnrletj and not of the malaria type, tests itavc proved. A mosquito's life, is three weeks and it is believed lhat many new ones were bred here recently, because of the numerous rains in the Spring. Mosquitoes come only from \vig- Klclnils and wlgglcl.tils only from walcr and so Ihe mosquitoes which bother you arc grown in your own yard or very nearby, nccordinu to the Mississippi County Health Unit, which recently issued a plea for all pools lo be tilled, drained, oiled or limed. People also were asked lo look for walcr in lubs, barrels, tec box drains, boal.s, cans, flower pots, caught rainwater, aulo casing bodies, radiators, wells, lotlcts. low places in alleys, lots and under houses, gutters, sink drains, vacant houses, culverts, cans and .street ditches. The U. S. Public Health service is furnishing- supervision over all labor and entomological inspection work with the help of Ihe Mississippi Comity Health Unil, alone with an entomological inspector already assigned to this area for malaria control in war areas, lo furnish Iransporlatfoii facilities for the hauling of oil and other equipment. Tlie city Is furnishing a laborer for sis months at a cast of $500 and furnishing approximately 3000 gallons of fuel oil to cost about $180. along with $50 for Incidental expcmcs such as oil spray and sily of our air allacXs on Ki.ska and Attu and the recent naval bal- U; between Attu and Russia's Komandorskie islands Indicate that developments on a bigger scale may be impending In that heater, it must bo remembered lhat our policy is based on gaining bases from which we can altack the Japanese home Islands.
