This represents no change In United Nations global slratcgy. If our wai- policy makers were compelled by the pressure of pubic opinion lo change their btralegic plans, fliers; Isn't much otic could say in favor of olllier Uic strategists or their plans. President nooscvelt's when asked (o conmieiit on «„.. gressional demands for a change lu strategy In which he would fight a holding war against Germany and concentrate Immediately on Japan, slimmed up the general feeling of the strategists. Me said ho Is too familiar with the figures lo comment. In other words, lie is well aware of the long-range plans on ivhlch we are fighting a war aroutttl Ihe globe and which must not W sidetracked by snap judgments or popular pressure. -.•Abraham (Lincoln once tried lo -fight a war by yielding to the voices of arm chair strategists and didn't begin to win. it until lie left the battle planning and direction to professional soldiers. •'-, ' * Our Course .Sound V >' It is easy lo say-that, we should knock out Japan now and-let the bombers pound Germany into dc-, feat. But such is Ihc-'riature of the •war In the .Pacific that even if . ..Germany should milt/tomorrow-we stlirwpuld 'have to do cxRctry.'vi-h'at big offensive against ja'paii. • -It. is recalled that President Roosevelt once said our first objective in the Pacific is to obtain bases from which to allack Japan. The process ot obtaining those basts Is on right now, Attu is two thousand miles from .Tokyo but, only about 15H miles from the Japancs nava base of Pannmislihu in (ho Kurile group. Wake.

Kurt M. Lniidon, the commanding officer, in a talk at the weekly meeting of tlie Lion's Club yesterday at the Hotel Noble. He remarked that tire gjylhcvlljc Field is a sample demonstration of the conditions under which tlr? sons, brothers and neighbors of his hearers were preparing for combat, arid that to see II in operation would give a good Idea of Army conditions in other training camps. . The invitation was extended for Open Post EWy, (Thursday, JURC 10. .when the gates will be open to the Rubify. witiK.wsllors.. iieriuitted.' to circulate; about the •grounds' and see thc^.trnTriliiStiiili ' ' ternoon retreat the troops.

We are working our way up the north- cast New Guinea coast with the ultimate objective of clearing all of that Island and making il an attack bass for further advance. In the Solomons area, we have moved into the Riisscl group and far to the cast we have taken Funafuti in the Ellicc group putting us within range of Japan's Nauru base and others in the Gilbert Islands. Tiie heavy assault on Wake Island, where Japan first found out how lough nrc Ihe United Stales Marines, may be the forerunner of an eventual American attempt to re-captnrc that island. Wake is about I-2QO miles from our oulposl of Midway which, .'presumably was the base for the attacking American bombers. Our Subs Watch Japan American submarines, according to Japan's own admission, are poking the periscopes through the waters rljsht off the Japanese coast and observing movements ashore Our new plane types in the Pacific must be giving |j )c j a|)s rea | concern. Tlie Navy's brand-new vought-Sikorski Corsald higli altitude fighter Is in action there and the men who fly It say it can outfight any pursuit plane in the Pacific— Including tlie vaunted Zero. In American factories, giant new bombers so big thai 35-ton Plying Fortresses will be used as transition planes to teach student.'; how to handle them, soon will be coming on 1. These long-range monsters still are highly secret. Army officials are closely guarding Ihclr'si/c, capacity, speed and oilier [Speciflcalions. But Ihcy concede freely that they will change the complexion of air warfare considerably. Such planes in the Pacific would make up our biggest deficit—that of distance. . ' In this connection, Army otficia'j have completed successful Icsts on nig gliders with detachable light motors which have carried 15 equippsd soldiers under their own power. Officers say the big gilders may soon be used for the transport of airborne forces and supplies from base to base—ideal for the Island-hopping of the Pacific. when all the factors are considered, il will be realized that It lakes lime lo mount a big offensive In the Pacific. The pr.limtnar- ies already are under way and the tempo of the Pacific push will Increase asour big bombers nnd newest fighters flow Into that theater. Japan can be sure of one thing- she will be given no respite during the lime It takes to knock out Hitler and Mussolini. . / you arc paying the bill. There is- little I can tell you that you don't . know about your Army,"" he con- bomber tinned, "for in this country (lie public is constantly informed by newspapers and by periodicals and the radio, with a full and accurate statement of the facts in so far as military expediency and the dc- mands of national security Laiulon remarked permit. Colonel the Blylhcvillc Field is an example or the progress that has been made under the pressure of war'needs, for a complete Army training program is under way where open farmland existed less than a year ago. He pointed out thai the Field is aboul to graduate its fifth class of aviation cadets, nnd that tho training program began nine months ago, just three months after ground was broken in the construction ro- gram. Th? colonel expressed appreciation for the cordial attitude and spiril of friendliness and iiiidcr- slanriing which lias been shown by lhc people or Blylhcvllle. saying lhal Ihere has been no conflict or maladjustment between civilians and lh« large numbers of soldiers from all parts of the country who have come abruptly inio the life of Ihe community.
