IIONOIIUE of Unllrd Fits* Persistent (Jerinai'i warnings Uial American ofVensivc operations arc imminent against Iho Jap-lieM Aleutians may 01- may not be true. The American naval command which is m charge of the Aleutians area is Ucejiinjr its plans well hidden. Hut it may lie significant that the German radio keeps hiirpiiiK on this theme: "Nobody in Japan deceives himself liuhl-heartedlv about, the extraordinarily dangerous situation into wtiicli Jans would plunge if an American thrust over the Aleutians were successful." The Germans know whereof lliey • - - _____ __ speak. For the Jap-held Aleutian Island of Kiska is only 875 miles from Uie Kurilc Islands which lead right to 'Jnpaii ilself. if we hop into Kiska,' thence into the Kurilcs, the big cities ot Japan will be brought within close range of our bombers, ' . Our Springboard There was n time when American military spokesmen scoffed at the occupation of the. westernmost Aleutians ;is of minor Importance. not any more. They Icum as the potential springboard for our ultimate assault on Nip|»n, despite the emphasis laid on southwest Pacific operations. ' li ran be safely .said Hint Japan's occupation of Attu find Kiska was primarily a defensive move. Since her defeat at Midway, Japan probably revised her plans which originally seemed to have called for; nil Invasion of the United States, and concentrated jtistead oh strengthening what, she already had gained and milking it' impregnable to i^sault; , . In Ktokn'.iuid Attu' the ,j;ips have a barrier .against an American offensive uil'-iJajiaii- as- well, as" valuable observation .post, ,'jiic enemy on those islands also has been able' to 'pin .'down 1 a' section.' of the Ainc- rican/flect.'nnd force us' to divert supplies arid troops to pur Aleutian- njf .In addition^' th'e ' ' tlio, .Aleutians route as a possiblc"~suppiy " Une"f,6~ China. IJsert'For Jap Sjubs Kiska lias a good harbor, a fact that Japan learned long through the observations ol so-called "fisherman" who free access lo those- waters and made good use of It. Now, Kiskn harbor is a Japanese submarine base. Without complete prior knowledge of every reef und rock the Japs could not have occupied thc islands last June. Thc fog-bound ':oast of the Aleutians are rocky Jiid worn by thc Hounding of Ihe cold-North Pacific surf. Tlic sea approaches arc exceedingly dangerous tor vessels unless the pilots know exactly where llic channels lie. There is no shore line in Ihc usual sense of the word, for the land rises immediately from the water into bold and forbidding mountains. It never gels very cold or very hot in cither AlUi/ or Kiska, surprising as Ihat may seem, nnd Ihe annual'mean temperature is about 38 degrees above raro. There is only Ihc Interminable fog, cold niurl and oppressive loneliness which make Altu nnd Kiska one of the dreariest, most forlorn fighting fronts of this war. Thc Islands arc treeless and barren, Ihcir only vegetation a carpet of scrubby herbs, grass and .strange wild flowers. Tlie whole chain ceded to the United Slates by Russia in 1867. toast Oiiiird Ilasc Unalnska has long been headquarters (or Ihc American Coast Guard in that area nnd -Dutch Harbor in thc Unnlaska Island has been converted into a powerful naval base. We have moved into Ihe Andrcanoffs, midway between Unalaska nnd Kiska, nnd set uji ;ii fields there. ••' There is lilllc doubt, that the planes which dumped one million pounds of bombs on Ihe Jap islands during April came, at least in part from thc Antlreanofs. in August of 1042, an American naval task force shelled a concentration of Jap ships in Kiska Harbor, around which most of the enemy's Installations are grouped. And last Fcb- 'ruary we bombarded Altu Island, while our navy related llie job on April 22. Thc smashing scries of air attacks on both Kiska and ALlu is a pretty fair indication that we intend lo drive the Japs out of both those places. It may bo that we arc just waiting for the Japs to finish the air field they have been laboring on so diligently before moving in. Saves V. S. tabor The Americans have had a pro- ]>ensity for doing that against Ihc Japs. They moved into Guadalcanal just afler Ihe Japs had completed a fine airfield—which now Is known as Henderson Field—thus saving us weeks of back-breaking labor. No one knows exactly how many troops thc Japs have on Kiskn nnd Au. Bu it's probably in the neighborhood of 15,000. There mlghfhavc been more if our Navy hadn't intercepted n big Jap troop convoy HUFJPUL Motley Taken In Recent Burglaries Recovered By Police Last Night The several recent burglaries in BlythEvillc have been solved wilh Ihe arrest of a 10-year-old youth from Mobile. Ala., und most of the money has been returned lo thc owners after he told officers where the money was hidden. Turned over lo thc Mississippi County juvenile court, he will be tried tomorr'pw before County Judge Roland Green. Working with only the most slender of clues, Police Chief William Berryman, assisted by other city arid counly officers traced the burglaries of the Sclmiiick Scrvics Station, Texaco Service Station, thc station across from Oof f Hotel, and Heath's Pool Room, to the youth whom they trailed throughout yesterday. ..- -. , •: .'-•Arrested early 'last night: at Ihe carnival;, where he was spending niuuey .^Vccly^the .yoiith.later confessed to all, of tlie burglaries and told officers 50 of tlie .money was hidden in a cigar box atop the Johns Building near Ihe pool room where he obtained about $75 Werl- desrtay night in his Intest job.. Tlic fact that only a small hole was made to gain entrance through the pried guards of the pool room window and tliat the money was in pennies, nlcklcs nnd oilier change, gave Police Chief Dcrryman his only chics. Everyone who paid for purchases wllh a number of pennies yesterday were sought by officers aflcr descriptions were given tallied for one youth. Visiting ihe carnival, Deputy Sheriff Don s. Haley spoiled him after the description fitted and his arrest followed. j He said lie entered thc jxwl room window by prying the guard ra!t> wilh a Iwo by torn- limber.
