SAYS CHINA IS NEAR COLLAPSE Wife of Envoy Cites Long War Strain PHILADELPHIA, OJ.R)--Chinese esistance to Japanese aggression s facing collapse because ot al- ed failure to send promised shipments of food and munitions, Madame Wellington Koo, wife of ie Chinese ambassador to Great Jritain, warned Monday. 'Afler five and one-half years of war," Madame Koo said, in an address before united war chest workers, "We have come close to the limit. Let us not kid ourselves. China today is nearer collapse on the economic front than at any other time during the course of the war." * * * Madame Koo said that if the Jhinese government should be orccd to a negotiated peace, i vould not be because her soldier: lave shirked the fighting. "It will not be because we have lad enough," she said. "We have ought practically without guns yithout planes, without ammuni ion. It will be because the people ire ravaged by sickness, because he people are starving, in the streets, because hope will be gone ind with it the spirit to carry on.' Madame Koo charged that Great 3rilain and the United States let "hiria down badly and said that :hina had as great n claim on American aid as Great Britain md Russia. "We are not getting that help " ihe said. ¥ * * .Madame Koo said that President Roosevelt did not tell the entire story in his address lo congress when he said that as much is being flown into China as ever went over the Burma road. * * * "What he did not say was that of all the lend-leasc materials China gets only 2 per cent, the rest going to England and Russia." Madame Koo said. "What he did not say was that of this pitiful 2 per cent, only about half ever got to Burma and that of this only half again ever got into China," she said. "The president did not point out that of what materials did go lo China one hundred per cent were made up of equipment for war and medical supplies." "Not a pound o£ food ever went over the Burma road," Madame Koo said, "01- is any going in now." Ex-Sergeant, 15, Arrives in New York NEW YORK, (L.R) _ Johnny Maras, 15 year old former army sergeant who has had a truant officer on his trail ever since the army discovered his real age, arrived in town Monday with a burning desire to sec as many swing bands as possible in a three- day visit. v He was in tow of a press agent who said Johnny's burning desire was to see a movie called "Immortal Sergeant," and the ex-sergeant politely agreed but he. talked mostly about jazz bands. Johnny explained that he has been drumming in orchestras around Milwaukee since he was 12 years old. Young Maras is the lad who hitch-hiked from Milwaukee -to Los Angeles last July to join the army in order to avenge a buddy Marine Pvt. Jack Cooper, who was killed at Pearl Harbor. A secondary reason was that he had been picked up by a state trooper the day before and charged with driving a car without a license, registration or federal tax stamp. He lied about his age and by the first week in December he was a corporal. Just before Christmas the army made him a sergeant. Johnny forthwith went back homo to Milwaukee on furlough, proudly displaying his stripes. He thinks a jealous neighbor, whose son had been in the army 18 months and was only a private, turned him in. The army released him just as his outfit was about to embark for a combat zone. "The day after I got home," Johnny said, "my picture was in the paper and the next day the truant officer called up and said I should report to the school board. I haven't done it yet. I haven't heard any more about (he traffic rap cither." Warn Public to Be on Guard Against Theft, Forgery of U. S.
