May 12. Our forces on the samt. island have intercepted them anc are now engaging them in tierce battle." The Japanese had re named .Atiu Atsuta after the At- suta shrine at Nagoya, Japan.) The size ot the enemy's garrison ort Attu is not known but it is be lieved to be smaller than the approximately 10,000 troops re ported on Kiska island, east o Attu. * f. # There was 110 indication Ihat any attack had been nude ou Kiska and this led to speculation that the United States maneuver was deticned to outflank the more strongly held enemy base and if possible place its garrison in au almost untenable position before attacking there. * * * AHu has been used as a supply point lor Kiska and presumably A m e r i c a n possession of Attu would greatly reduce Kiska's usefulness to the enemy as a potential airbase and a submarine operating base. Possession ol Attu w o u l d give the American Aleutians command a w e a t h e r observation station west of Kiska-a fact of supreme importance 1he Aleutians where weather is most constant single problem which airmen and seamen face. Heretofore the advantage has been aTl with the Japanese because the weather moves from west to east and they knew what conditions would be when United States forces could not know. Possession ot Attu, provided it reduces the Japanese garrison on Kiska to impotence and puts American forces in position- to knock out Kiska speedily, would a f f o r d - a n American base within 630 nautical miles of Japan's great base of Paramushiru which is at the northern end of the Ku- viles' island extending bctweei. Japan proper and Russia's Kam- chatka peninsula. If the Japanese have succeeded in carving an airbase out ot Attu's mountainous 1 u n d s c :\ p e, A m e r i c a n forces undoubtedly would devote full energies toward completing it as speedily as possible in order to bring Paramush- iru in aerial bombardment. * Japs Say Landing by "Crack" Troops NEW YORK, (JP)-- Japanese imperial headquarters . said in a broadcast communique Thursday that "crack American forces" started landing Wednesday on A t t u island in the bleak, fog- shrouded Aleutians and that a fierce battle was in progress. # # * Attu is the westernmost of the rocky Aleutians pointed like an arrow at the heart of the Japanese empire from Alaska.

Attu was 'bombarded April 30 jy a naval task force, and this -together with the punishing air blows-- seemed certain to have so f te ned ' · t he Japanese garrison considerably. An American landing on Attu such as reported by the Japanese presumably would be under the overall command of Admiral Chester W. Nitnitz, commander in chief of the United States Pacific fleet. Rear Admiral Thomas Cassin Kinkaid of Philadelphia is believed to be in direct command of. naval forces in Alaskan-Aleutian waters. Lt.. Gen. Simou Bolivar Buckner is commanding general of the Alaskan defense command. Troops who seized Amchitka recently were commanded by Brig. en. Lloyd E.

The two weeks exten- u*a te to be put into effect as soon as possible, and in no case later than July I. * * * Although no reason was given for the move, other than that one week caused hardships "in some cases," it was understood that the war department felt fathers would need more time than .single or childless married men to settle their personal and business affairs when inducted. Thus, the announcement was interpreted as heralding the drafting of fathers on a large scale in the near future. At the same time, however, Chairman Reynolds (D.-N. Car.), of the senate military committee paved the way Friday for a new congressional fight to exempt fathers for the rest 'of 1943 by calling for hearings to start Mon- iay on the house-appt^yed Kilday * * # While the bill would only delay the induction of fathers. Senator Wheeler (D.-Mont.l. a member of the committee, said he would seek to substitute a flat exemption proposal for the house measure. * * * Reynolds' action was prompted by a communication from the war department Thursday requesting hat high ranking officials be permitted to testify on the measure.

Bed Star, said Friday that a big scale offensive was imminent on the Russian front and warned that Germany still was capable of attacking in great force. The announcement followed the soviet mid-day communique which said the red air force, continuing its offensive against German supply and communications lines, destroyed 40 railway cars and -sank tour enemy ships in the Barents sea. An editorial in Ited Star said a large scale German tank attack was expected. "The hour is drawing near for fge scale fighting in which great asses of troops will participate," the editorial said. "The character of the forthcoming battles is clear We can judge from previous experience and from what is «oin" 911 at the front and rear." " The newspaper suggested that the German high command would Pin its hopes on its armored and ,, 'T 1 ?, w i" ter campaign weakened the Germans but we must not underestimate their strength " the article continued. "We must realize that the Germans can still attack with large armored spear- ncads. We must be prepared for mass, attacks by tanks and mechanized units supported by other formations." "We not only possess every means to hold the enemy but to defeat him." TRADE PACTS UP TO SENATE Speedy Action Promised on House Approved Act WASHINGTON, l.f)--A house- approved bill renewing President Roosevelt's authority to make reciprocal trade agreements was promised speedy senate consideration Friday with administration leaders' expressing determination to block any move to give congress the right to pass on each pact. Further than that. Chairman George (D.. Ga. of the senate finance committee said he would do his utmost to give the executive branch the full three year extension it asked, rather than the two years voted Thursday by the house. George said he would call the bill before the committee at the earliest possible moment after the senate disposes of the pay-as- you-go income tax collection bill, now entering its third day of debate. Discussing reports that a group ot republican senators would insist that congress be given veto power over the agreements, Senator Connally (D., Tex.), a member of the finance committee, said he thought the failure of a similar move in the house would "scare 'em off." The house voted down the veto proviso 170 to 149 artd passed the ill by a vote of 342 to C5. although a republican - democratic [coalition trimmed the extension time from three to two years by a count of 136 to 153. An Associated Press poll last month showed that 40 of 59 senators who were willing to-commit themselves at that time ware prepared to vote for an extension of the trade program without change. The 19 others reached were either flatly opposed to extension or demanded substantial amendments. In addition to the veto power some republican senators were known to be discussing the advisability of an amendment which would cause individual U'caties to lapse one year after the expiration of the act itself a * PHILCO C O R P O R A T Hear Rex Stout Expose AXIS LIES Pho wouldn't love to receive one Vo ' an wVJ! 1L W e , n Lclon e Floral !
