In the southwest Pacific, marine MP's are mastering a few rudiments of the Nipponese tongue so they can handle Japanese captives with some'degree of comprehension. Their choicest accomplishments, as a consequence, are phrases like these, written in Romaji (English spelling of Japanese word): "Halt!"--"Tomare!'' "Put up your hands"--'-fiyo te o agero.". "Line up"--"Narabc." "Halt or I'll f i r e"--"Tomara naito utsuzo." "Shut up"--"Damare."

Records accompanying the booklet aid in developing correct pronunciation. A bad cold is a real help in mastering the spoken tongue, since one soilnd is made "like the noise used in clearing your throat" and another is "like the sound when you gargle." The booklet will tell you that 35,000,000 people speak Arabic, and any similarity to English is purely coincidental. For instance the sound "beer" means no foaming alcoholic brew but "a well" in Arabic; "fool" m e a n s "kidney bean," and "ma" means "water." If you want a cigaret, you must say, "nhub see-gar-ro" and follow it up with "da-rak il-la-ho fik," for "thank you." If you say "sa-lam-oo-a-lay-koom" the next time you meet someone, that, mister, is just the Arabic equivalent for "Hi yuh, pal." KISS BRINGS G. I.'s Shaw Field, S.

' PUT STRESS ON VICE PRESIDENT Demos Look for Running Mate for Roosevelt Washington, (Aj -- An early move lo seek convention pledges for House Speaker Sam Hayburn of Texas emphasized Wednesday the unusual attention that politicians are directing toward the democratic vice presidential nomination this year. With President Roosevelt still turning: aside 4th term inquiries, some practical politicians are conceding him the nomination on the first ballot and working to get their choice installed as his running mate, with an eye to the future. One high democratic official said there is no doubt in his mind that--if the president runs again --this year's vice presidential candidate will have a head start on everyone else in the 1943 race for the top nomination. , Besides that, this; politician observed there always is a possibility tiiat if Mr. Roosevelt is elected for a 4lh term and Die war ends, he might resign to head a bi- partisan delegation to the peace conference. With lhal in mind, some Rayburn supporters in congress are bringlnc pressure to bear in the south to get preconveiition pledges from delegates that they will support the speaker through what might become (he biggest battle of the Chicago meeting. Four years ago the late Speaker Bankheacl of Alabama went into the convention with a sizeable following, but Mr. Roosevelt chose Henry Wallace for his r u n n i n g mate and had his way. Some of the party members think Wallace may be dumped Thursday.
