DISTRIBUTED BY Iowa State Bread Creaawries, Inc. Magnitude of Disaster After Japs 1st Struck Is Revealed Washing ton, (0?)--Here is the previously undisclosed magnitude of the disaster that all but wiped out our air force in the Pacific when the Japanese struck: We had a total of 526 planes of all types deployed on the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, to meet possible*attacks on the Hawaiian and . l n 1 r 1 Appeal Hoard bwamped With Cases Requiring Occupational Reviews credit in Kresge's- Credit of Philippine islands. 'Within a few hours that number was reduced to 176." The quotes are those of Gen. H. H. Arnold, reporting on the Pacific war In a summary of the operation of his army air force command. Arnold said that Dec. 7 found the army air forces "equipped with plans but not -With planes. . . . Our combat strength (for the whole nation) was little better thfcn a corporal's guard of some 3,000 planes; of these only 1,157 were actually suited to combat service." The work of the Japanese at the army's Hickam and Wheeler fields in thorough Hawaii was at Pearl "fully as Harbor," RUMBLINGS Rumbling noises preceding a fire in an elevator of a local mill at LeMars had people puzzled for a time. Study later revealed that possibly the rumbling noises were caused by dust explosions. Arnold commented ^bitterly, referring to the destruction the enemy wrought on our Pacific fleet in the big Hawaiian naval base. "They smashed our airdromes, caught most of our planes on the ground. and left us without any hope of continuing our reinforcement of the Philippine air arm via Hawaii," he said. "On the island of Luzon they disposed of two-thirds o£ our strength before we could recover from the surprise attack and rebuild our air defenses." But here Arnold disclosed another and associated factor in the attack. He reported: "On Luzon, it must be said, we had maintained an air alert since Nov. 15. "Even so, General MacArthur reported that at the eno? of the first day of war there were only 17-heavy bombers and approximately 70 fighters left out of a force of 35 B-17's, 30 medium and 8 light bombers. 220 fighters and 23 other airplanes. In the days that followed, 14 of the B-17's managed to get to Australia, but the fighters were destroyed one Des Moines, (IP) -- The central Iowa district selective service appeal board is swamped with cases requiring occupational reviews as the result of recent federal legislation. The new law requires appeal boards in the area in which a non-resident 2-A or 2-B registrant is working to review his case within 30 days and determine whether the classification assigned by his local board was justified. Guy Logan, chairman of the central Iowa district board, said "I don't see how we can take care of all these cases in 30 days time." Col. Ralph A. Lancaster, assistant state selective service director, estimated that there are "probably 5,000 or 6,000" Iowa cases to be reviewed but he added that a good many of these would be forwarded to appeal boards outside the state. BANK EMPLOYES HONOR FISHERS Farewell Party Held at Hotel Hanford About 65 guests, including em- ployes and directors of the First National bank and their wives, attended the farewell party for Mr. and Mrs. Harry Fisher at the Hotel Hanford Wednesday night.

No other nation on earth could have come within a fraction of last year's accomplishments in terms of time, quantity and quality. "What shall we do with this power when the war is over?" he asked. "Shall we destroy it as we did a quarter of our combatant tonnage in 1322 and go back to bed for another 20 years?" Quoting the statement of Prime Minister Jan Smuts of South Africa that "peace without power remains an empty dream," Forrestal asserted Smuts said "in substance, that peace was obtainable only if guaranteed by the power of nations who w a n t peace." "Naturally, he included the United States as one of those nations," he said. "And I would like to add to his remarks my own conviction that far into the future our own national security must have as its first foundation the maintenance of the great sea and air power which the United States navy is now in the process of Duilding."
