Up to now. the Chlndits have concoiilrated on culling (he enemy's north-lo-sottlh communications in Burma, They did this by establishing road, rail anil river blocks, and destroying numerous bridges. Supplies and reinforcements thus were kept from the Japs' northern Burma army. Guins in North liunna The raiders' appearance in thc Myitkyina sector seems to seal the doom of that city's garrison. Another Nipponese garrison, CO miles to the northwest, also seems lo be facing capture or annihilation. Allied troops are knocking at the door of Kntnaing, Japan's main base in northern Burma. Thc town is expected lo fall at any time. This leaves the enemy's largest upper Burmese force at Mogaung in a semi-isolated state. The Allies probably will close in on this garrison after- they have captured thc other two cities. '.

America, by establishing shuttle- service bases In Russia, has started a triple air offensive against the Reich which will be followed by an all-out triple land assault from the cast, west and south. Russia now has the same heavy bomber support to prepare for Its eastern drive that .Britain and America have for their southern and western offensives. The Soviet has n powerful air arm. But^although II has heavy bombers, even with a six-engincd giant with a 3,000 mile range—Russia never has concentrated on such planes. Thc Soviet, produces 3,000 aircraft a month. By last February, It had received 2.COO from America and, through 1942, 3,000 from Britain. Bin, almost all these arc light planes for troop support. Aid To Keds Now heavy bombers will prepare- for Russia's D-day just as 'they're preparing for Britain and America's n-day in the west. Flying from Britain and Italy, they will strike targets behind Germany's eastern front then land In Russia. Returning, they cnn repeat the process. Those' targets will be of two kinds —strategic, such as industries,. and tactical, such,as rail lines. Among the former arc objectives thai planes striking from Britain or Italy have been, able to hit with only small bomb loads at the test because'of the long distance home. Some of >liese arc tho industrial-city br.Dres- dcn'i-Prague,"with'its. giant Skoda works; the Baltic ports of Gdynia, which'-is-reported': to be Germany's 'chief naval base now that Kiel"has been bombed put. ' i Also on'the'list are the ports of Koenigsberg and Riga anil the troop concentration- points of Warsaw, Krakow' arid Bucharest. American planes based at Poggia in Italy now are within 800 miles of Romania's Ploesti oil fields. But In Russia they may be only 200 miles away. And the production of those nelds— which produce one-third of Hitler's oil—might well force Romania out of the war. Strike At Rail Lines As for tactical targets, they probably will be—as in the west—Germany's rail lines. In the northern' sector at the front, Germany des on three main railroad systems. One runs from Berlin to Koenigsberg and Vllna with branches to other points on the Baltic Two others stretch from Berlin Into central Poland, moving through Posen, Warsaw and An Enemy Bullet Finds Its Mark During Wakde Invasion 1 ' "'*' *" "'*"" ^fc'^'^-""" .JfW3fc<, jf .I'M ™vc during the Invasion ' ' '' vU',.& . _ :.

FBI Arrests 15 tin Conspiracy Service Men Sell Draft Rejections At Induction Center liy United I'ress Thc FBI lins exposed another flagrant conspiracy against the Government. ' FBI Director J. Edgar Hoovcijhns announced the arrest of 15 persons in Baltimore on charges of conspiracy In connection with selling draft rejections. Hoover identified the servicemen on the staff of the Maryland sl/lc induction center as major figures in the alleged conspiracy. He said they were Nnval Chief Pelty Officer Chester T. Ruby, clerical supervisor nt the induction center; Sergeant Leon D. Shapiro and Corporal Morris Moiofsfcy, The servicemen are said to have contracted prospective draftees to ascertain whether or not they were intercslcd in buying rejections. Hoover added the prices ranged from $150 to $300. In some instances, thc price was a case of liquor. Selectees who paid up were taught how to pretend neurotic symptoms before the induction center's examining psychiatrists. • Hoover said that. in addition - to Ifcihe servicemen, ct.eht selectees are T charged with giving false statements to evade military "'service. And four other persons are charged with counselling, aiding and abetting evasion of military service. ' The accused were arraigned today and held In a total of $29,000 ball for hearing "June 13.

Humming birds migrate 500 miles without a stop for food or rest, In the Balkans, thc Gcrmnns are served by five main lines radiating from Budapest to Trieste, Zagreb, Sarajevo, Belgrade and Bucharest. Tills system is hooked to Germany by thc BcrUn-to-Drcsden-to-Budn- pest line. Now all tracks lacing eastern Europe are under thc shadow of American warplanes—which already have disrupted all Nazi railroads behind a 400-mile stretch of Europe's western coast. And the enemy will be hard put to combat those raids effectively. In mid-winter, Germany was estimated to have 450 fighters on thc whole Russian front. Now, for three months, it has been losing more planes than it could build. So the number probably has dropped considerably. Thc Army Air Forces chief, Lieut. Oen. Henry Arnold, says the Reich's air reserve has been nil but wiped out. The Nazis arc hard put to raise even inadequate resistance to attacks on western Europe. But, in the midst of their declining air fortunes, they must shift fighters cast to combat still another air assault. May Get More Bases This new development opens a third possibility. Some observers think Russia, by lending us bases against Germany, indicates It will do the same against Japan. Thc Allies have made It plain that they don't want Russia In the war against Japan now. But after Hitler. collapses It may be a different story. However, the greatest result of this new step is the aid the Allies may give Russia in her fight against Germany, not the aid Russia may give the Allies in their fight against Japan. As the chief of the U. S. Strategic Air Forces, Lieut. Gen. Carl Spaatz once said "If the Red Army had thc Eighth Air Force operating with It, It would be in Berlin now." N..O.

German Flak Hits Plane, Saves Blytheville Pilot's Life "Yes, sir, I wouldn't be here Unlay If that burst of German fink hniln'l hit my plane and saved our lives." commented Lt. Robert L. Holt, B-25 pilot from Blylhcville, Ark. (Route 1), telling of his experiences over the Anzio beachhead. One of thc few men anywhere who can truthfully say that enemy fink saved his life, the lives of his crew, and his plane, Lt, Holt has just arrived at the Air Transport Command's 36th St. Miami Air Base after completing 50 bombing missions in his B-25 Mitchell over Bulgaria, Greece, Jugoslavia and Italy. The son of Rev. and Mrs. J H Holt of Rcclor, Ark., Lt. Holt served nine months overseas and has been awarded, lhc Air Medal. His uncanny mission was a bombing raid over Ihe Anzio beachhead, Approaching the larget.'he was flying In the second element of a bomber formation,. when the Germans suddenly began heaving a tremendous .flak barrage at the group of planes. As Lieutenant Holt describes it the sky turned black with flak bursts—In fact the sky was so black from the bursting shells that we couldn't even see thc bomber form |>™>» direclly ahead of ours." 11, i cn lhe Gernlilrl Runners got their range. They scored a solid hit Ing up T, Holt. 1Iea , dlnB 1)llmc ftnd immediately brcnk - U. Robert L. H6lt Clouds of greasy black smoke blew straight back, blanketing Lt. Holt's plane. Two limp bodies tumbled out and flew back through thc propeller wash, one hitting Lt. Holt's Mitchell on the left rudder, the other smashing into the co-pilot's windshield, cracking It Into a spider- work pattern of shattered glass. Jagged fragments of the engine nnd burning piano wero flashing hack, spattering like h.iil on Ll. Holt's plane and leaving long Jagged rips where they hll. Meanwhile his Mitchell was clamped tight In the propeller wash of tho burning plane. Ll. Holt gave his plane full left ruddering, but it wouldn't respond to Ihe conlrols. It was following the burning plane In.n death rllve. And the disintegrating ship which dragged them down was loaded with four 1,000 pound bombs, and their plane carried thc same load. Lt. Hoic nnd his crew realized Ihnt thc fire in the ahost ship would soon reach the bombs to touch oft rtn explosion that would blow twlh planes oul of Ihe sky. But struggle iis he could with Ihe controls, Lt. Holt couldn't prevent thc hypnotized ship from following the doomed plane. Then Ihe Germans lobbed up an nntl-alrcrafl shell—nnd it exploded directly under the right wing ot Lt. Holt's plane, blowing the Mitchell upside down In a flash of flame and burst of black smoke. The bursting concussion blew Lt. Holt's B-25 out of the first plane's prop wash—but tho crew held their breath wondering If their own 4,000 pounds of bombs would explode or crash down through the roof of lhc upside-down plane. Lt. Holt tried to turn Hie plane right side up. But again it wouldn't answer the controls and stayed Stubbornly flying along on its back. The two tons of tombs that the plime carried made It uncontrollable. So 1,1, Holt lipped Ihe plnnc over very gently on one wing, put it Into a dive, and slowly worked It right side up as It streaked toward tho beachhead. Then lie glanced at the airspeed indicator—450 miles per hour. He thought of the two tons of bombs he wns carrying and shuddered. For at that diving speed, carrying thai heavy load, lhc wings were very likely 11 rip right off when ho pulled the plane up out of Its screaming dive. But he cased thc Mitchell slowly and gcnlly out of Its dive, and nothing broke—although thc plane was subjected to a strain far greater than tt was built to take. His formation, by trite time, was almost out of sight, having dropped its bombs and headed.tor thc home airbaso. So ne cut back to Join It, nnd flew back with them, rtaklng >i safe landing even-.though the plane was s,Ull burdened witn Its two tons of bombs. - Hitler Musi Decide i On Fale Of Capitol, General Wilson Says .
