FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 1942 MIAMI DAILY NEWS-RECORD — MIAMI, OKLA. STATE ITEMS IN FEDERAL BUDGET Elimination of Three Indian Boarding Schools in Oklahoma Is Proposed WASHINGTON, Jan. An increase in appropriations for operation and maintenance of the federal reformatory at El Reno, Okla.,-was included in 1943 fiscal year budget estimates submitted to Congress by President Roosevelt. The budget recommendation was for $735,155 in 1943 an increase over the $690,700 appropriated in 1942. The budget contained np breakdown showing what the increase would be used for. A slight decrease in Indian funds for state would result from Presidential recommendations. Five Indian boarding schools in the nation -would be eliminated, the budget message said—three of them in Oklahoma, at Euchee, Eufaula and Wheelock. This would result in a decrease of $330,000 in appropriations for Indian education. There was an increase of $167,670, however, over the 1942 appropriation of $5,918,320 for conservation of Indian health in the nation. No specific appropriations were set out in the budget for various Indian hospitals in the state but Indian bureau officials said the amounts they requested were contained in the general total. These included for operation and maintenance during the next fiscal year: Cheyenne and Arapaho hospital, $37,476; Talihina sanitarium, $203,604; Shawnee sanitor- ium, $112,940; Claremore hospital. $83,620; Clinton hospital, $23,080; Pawnee-Ponca hospital, $43,032; Kiowa -hospital, $151,400 and William W. Hastings hospital, $76,- T16. The total estimate for the Bureau of Indian Affairs was $26,714,136, a net decrease of $069,132 under 1942. There would be a $50,000 decrease under the $1,150,000 fund for support and rehabilitation of needy Indians. A $5,000 item for the Indian Free Fair at Anadarko,' Okla., would be year. Land acquisition funds would be decreased $160,000 and there would be a. $100,000 cut in appropriations for the revolving loan fund. Indian schools of the five civilized tribes would be allowed $392,050, compared with $369,n35 this fiscal year. Payments under treaties with the Choctaws and Pawnees would be unchanged at $10,520 and $30,000 respectively. The Indian bureau said $246,000 was asked for the Chilocco Indian school, $J29,250 for the quoyah orphan training school at Tahlequah; $64,525 for Carter Sem inary and $68,125 for Jones academy. The budget estimated $100,000 would be needed for use of the reclamation bureau if the Altus-Lugert flood control-irrigation project ii undertaken in the next fiscal year. Included under the national park service estimates were $20,250 fot maintenance and operation of Platt national park, compared with $2U ( 715 for 1942, and $5,300 for the Lake Murray recreational demon- itration area. PRE-WAR SECRECY SCREENS JAPAN'S REAL SEA STRENGTH Myster shrouds the number and strength of the ships and planes that fight under the baleful rays of the rising Sun symbol. By MILTON BRONNER NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Jan. 9—When war blazed in the Pacific, most Americans immediately wondered: "Just how strong- is the Japanese navy?" With the United States navy starting in to pop off the Mikado's ships, the question happily becomes "How many do they have left?" Accurate estimate of the strength of the Nipponese fleet is difficult because of the smoke screen of secrecy the Japs have thrown around their activities ever since they started an all-out naval building program five years ago. Occidentals who sought the facts met with a figurative "S-s-so sorry, no information, please." For the past few years there have been rumors that they were building, or had already built, from four to eight super-battleships. These vessels were described as being great 45,000-ton ships carrying gigantic 20-inch guns. However, despite the rumors and Japan's secrecy, United States and British naval men have expressed the confident view that the Japs actually have only been turning out 35,000-ton warships the same as most of the new battleships being launched in this country. JAPAN'S FIVE-YEAR NAVAL EXPANSION Nevertheless, because of German collaboration with Japan, naval experts here have expressed the view that Japan's new capital ships may be equipped with some of the se- * * and Mariana islands is one of their secrets, but it is likely. It was estimated the Jap navy had 500 planes and 2100 pilots. JAPS ARK STRONG IN AIRCRAFT CARRIERS The aircraft carriers that probably transported the Japanese planes for their attack upon Hawaii and the Philippines are in the main not so large nor so swift nor capable of carrying as many planes as their American rivals. Aircraft carriers known to belong to the Japanese navy were: Hosho, 7,470 tons with 25 knots speed; Akagi, 26,900 tons with 28.5 knots speed and carrying at capacity 50 planes; Kaga, 29,900 tons with 23 knots speed and carrying 50 planes; Ru- jyo, 7,600 tons with 25 knots speed, carrying 30 planes; the Soryu, Hi- ryu and Syokoku, each of 10,000 tons with 25 knote speed and each carrying 30 planes. In addition, the air arm of the Jap navy had three seaplane transports: the Kamoi, 17,000 tons with * * 15 knots speed; Notoro, 14,050 tons, with 12 knots speed and Chitose, 9,0*0 tons, with 20 knots speed. The number of seaplanes they carry is not known. It has been stated that the total manufacturing capacity of Japan for military and naval planes is 2,500, and that this itself is dependent upon the Japs' having the raw materials necessary. Japan has plenty of troops available for military occupation of any islands or mainland it may for the time being conquer. Its peacetime army is only 250,000, but the army has been up to fairly full war strength ever since Japan began agg-ression upon China. Every man between the ages of 17 and 40 is subject to military duty and it has been stated that Japan could but 6,000,000 men' into the field, provided it can furnish the equipment. Two million men' are supposed to be engaged in the Chinese war. That leaves a large margin for attack in the Philippines, Malaya and other key points. INTERNED ALIEN DIPLOMATS FIND SNOW WELCOME WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va., Jan. 9—ta?)_Life is the usual dull routine of winter guests at a summer resort for the approximately 200 German and Hungarian diplomats arid newsmen interned here—so much so that even the recent heavy snows provided a welcome diversion. Today, as on every other since the white flakes piled up last Saturday, that portion of the luxury Hotel Greenbrier.'s grounds allotted to the group was crowded with strolling, snowballing adults and children. The little folk, numbering more than a dozen, managed to obtain' some sleds, and with them enjoyed restricted coasting. Most of the time, however, it is a matter of eating, sleeping and talking, with a dip in the hotel pool, a small social gathering of just conversation to break the monotony. There are a few other guests, those who usually spend the winter at the hotel, but no more are being accepted. Nobody knows how long the aliens will stay, although it was said in the beginning that they might be expected to leave by Feb. 1. , WELCH The Prather-Lyttle marriage of Miss Roberts Prather, daughter of Mrs. Ethel Prather of Welch and Joe C.

BALTIC ISLAND YIELDS 10TH CENTURY RELICS STOCKHOLM, Jan. 9—UP>—A silver cache enclosed in a small oak casket, containing armlets, neckbands, rings, and pins of silver as well as more than 800 Arabic coins from the 10th century, all weighing more than 10 pounds, has been found on the Swedish island of Gotland, in the Baltic Sea. A little girl happened to kick a loose stone and brought the treasure to light. Similar rare finds are made frequently in the historically rich sail of Gotland, the capital of which is Visby. This once proud Hanseatic trad'ing port wag one of Europe's most wealthy cities in the Middle Ages, to which were carried riches from the far corners of the globe. Flying the world's most dependable transport planes, airlines of, the United States in the first eight months of 1941 logged a total of 30.46 percent increase in revenue passenger miles over the same period of 1940. R. A. F. engineers recently pasted a scad of half sections, of dried peas on a plane to find out, experimentally, the amount of "drag" that'* created by rivet headi. of their knowledge Japan had: Ten battleships with eight more under construction; eight aircraft carriers and two more under construction; 46 cruisers and ten more; being built; 125 destroyers with 111 more on the ways, and 71 sub-i marines, with seven new ones he-! ing constructed. | In comparison, at the same time,! the following picture was given of the United States Navy. Seventeen American battleship with 15 more being constructed; seven aircraft carriers and 11 more being built; 37 cruisers with 54 being built; 170 destroyers with 102 more on order; and 113 submarines with 73 new craft on the ways or on order. Some new ships for both countries have feeen completed during the ten months since the testimony was given. And of course the balance has shifted, and will continue to shift as both sides suffer losses in combat. Of sepecial importance, too, is the fact that all of the Japanese fleet is in the Pacific Ocean whereas the United States fleet is divided between the Atlantic and the Pacific in a ratio that has been kept secret. The strength of the present Japanese naval air arm is still another mystery. Some time ago it was believed Japan's air forces were not comparable to those of any of tliu other big powers. But it is believed that the Germans sent some of their own best machines and technicians to Japan. It was probably the navy planes which made the first swoop upon Hawaii. Japan had early this year 12 naval air stations in Japan proper, one at Port Arthur and one in Korea. Whether the Japs had others in the mandated Caroline Revival in Progress A revival meeting began at the Christian church last Monday night. The Rev. A. Z. Mathews, a widely-known evangelist, is do- the preaching. A Do Right has been formed. Thp meot- ings begin at 7:30 and will contin- nue indefinitely. The puplic is cordially invited to attend.
