ANOTHER brief but Important session of Japans Diet Is scheduled for this week, and we should weigh carefully all that the Tokyo radio sees fit to broadcast about the proceedings. Naturally, the announcements will be larded generously with propaganda specially concocted for consumption by the United Nations, but most likely we can find at least a due to the true reason for this emeigency three-day session. It is logical to assume that Premier Hideki Tojo and his henchmen already have mapped a plan of action, and it Is now up to the diet to voice enthusiastic approval, whether willing or not. Such rubber stamp actions are the rule and not the exception for Japan's so-called legislative body. A Japanese once pointed out to me the great stone building In which the diet meets as the tombstone of a democracy. He was right, 100 per cent. Tokyos broadcasts already have used all of the old, familiar phrases about Japans immutable purpose, a perfected structure for total national mobilization, and reorganization of enterprise. But all of this can be cut away by qualified students and we have several leaving at least the germ of truth. For an example, it is not necessary to go back Into history farther than November, 1941, when a special session was held Just before Pearl Harbor. Then American newspapermen and our diplomatic corps were there to report on what happened. The Japanese had a neat scheme to see that the session was properly" presented In the world's newspapers. They made Foreign Minister Togo's speech available several days ahead of delivery. It was packed with talk of peace. Premier Togos address not available until delivery was in an entirely different tone, and in a voice shrill with hatred he gave what he said was Japan's program successful conclusion of the China incident and establishment of the co-prosperity sphere. He said bluntly, too, that the Anglo-American blockade was an undeclared form of war. An over-confident and carefree America and Britain concluded he was just talking wildly through his army hat, and didnt heed this plain warning Japan might strike. Japan now must be facing a serious food situation; otherwise she wouldnt be talking about the necessity for Increased production as a reason for this special session. Her exhausted volcanic soil and a critical lack of fertilizers undoubtedly are two of the key reasons. The soil is so acid It must have neutralizing fertilizers, and they Just arent available. For the most part Japans home front Is strong, but there are several fundamental weaknesses, such as the ability to produce food and the black market, which is so widespread that it has become a cancer eating away much of the virility of her war effort. We are getting a taste ourselves of what the black market and inflation can do to hamper an all-out effort to win the war. It Is bad enough here, but It Is far worse In Japan.

Baruch as official adviser to Mr. James F. Byrnes, head of the all-powerful War Mobilization Board, has created widespread feeling that the mess into which things have gotten in Washington is about to be straightened out. It seems an ideal combination Mr Bvmes, able, energetic and skillful: Mr. Baruch, wise, experienced and with complete personal disinterestedness the outstanding citizen with no ax to grind, political, financial or social. If the first is to have the power to act and the second the power to guide, it would appear reasonable to hope that at last the long period of Incompetency and muddy thinking was over. BUT. IT Is a mistake to be too optimistic. For all Mr. Baruch's soundness and sense, he Is no miracle man. Even if not blocked, he cannot in a few days or weeks transform this vast, sprawling, overlapping and absurd machine which has been running wildlv all over the place, into a compact, coordinated organization that will function effectivelv without waste of time, energy and money. Nor can he now avert inflation. The time has gone bv for that. If eighteen months ago his advice had been taken, billions of dollars could have been saved and the inflation peril wholly controlled. But, when he recommended labor ceilings and farm ceilings to supplement a tax program which not only would take the profit out of war but siphon into the Treasury the menacing surplus purchasing power, his advice was refected and he was actually put In the White House doghouse for offering it. WHEN MORE than a year later the President was compelled to adopt the Baruch principles the upward spiral already had begun and the subsequent lack of firmness In putting those principles into operation has permitted the spiral to widen upward. Now. even though Mr. Bvmes and Mr. Baruch are given a free hand, inflation can be controlled only on the higher level. The ground lost cannot be regained. We have now to do the best we can and speed is essential if anv sort of control is to be exercised. With a free hand and full authority. Mr. Bvmes and Mr. Baruch can do much, but they cannot do the impossible. The big question Is: How free a hand and how much authority will they have? On paper, the authority is complete. But. as proven many times in the past, proper authority amounts to nothing. No matter what the executive order says, the U. S. AND CHINESE (Continued From Page One) The Baltimore Son man to whom authority is delegated can exercise it lust as far as the President wants and no farther. It is all a question of Presidential support If thev have it, thev can do anything; if thev lack It. they can do nothing and they know It. Certainly, Mr. Baruch knows it. IN THE last war, the reason he was able to make so fine a record was because no one could go over his head to Mr. Wilson, and Mr. Wilson supported him fullv in whatever he did Mr. Roosevelt has not vet trusted or supDorted anyone to that extent in anything. Some think him incapable of doing so. In this case, full support Is vital If progress out of the mess Is to be made. The hope Is it will be given, but the situation lustlfies some doubt. For. it Is clear that soon or late some things Mr. Baruch and Mr. Bvnvs are bound to want to do will not be welcome at the White House. FOR EXAMPLE, if thev are to get anywhere two things are essential one. the replacing of incompetents In kev positions with competent men: the other, adoption of an adequate and comprehensive tax program. The first cannot be done without arousing New Deal Ire and disturbing plans of the fourth-term strategists whose headquarters are In the White House The other cannot be done without sweeping aside the Secretary of the Treasury and adopting a general sales tax to which Mr Roosevelt and his CIO friend, Mr. Murray, are opposed. The fact that 1944 is election vear and Mr. Roosevelt is arranging to be drafted again naturally does not diminish this opposition. PERHAPS, wavs around or through these obstacles mav be found. It all depends upon the ability of the President to adlust to the emergency. his willingness to put fourth-term politics aside. Mr. Baruch is tactful and one of the least truculent of men He never gets mad. But. no one has ever regarded him as a yes man or a pushover. For the first time since the war began he has an official connection, but he is still a free man free, for example, to resign and give his reasons If he found he had been given responsibility without power. Or. if he found that anyone was going over the head of Mr. Bvmes to the President: or that he Is unable to accomplish anything. Mr Baruch's friends sav he has no expectations of these things happening, but that if thev should, his course would be clear He does not want to run the country or the Administration, as Mr. Roosevelt In moments of exasperation has hinted All he wants as to help win the war. BLOWS BLAST JAPS The WAACS A great corps of 65,000 women has been welded In the past year Into a true auxiliary force. They have taken over many duties that otherwise would1 be performed by able-bodied men who are needed for combat service. The original authorization called for the enrollment of 25,000. Last November the number was increased to 150,000. As of June 1, there were 160 field companies on duty under strict military discipline In 100 army posts and air bases In the United States, and other contingents have been sent abroad All this has been accompanied within a single year. At the outset it was assumed that they would perform administrative and clerical duties only. Now comes the surprising official statement that they are trained for 142 different specialist Jobs, of which the designations run through the alphabet from aircraft warning service and control tower operator to parachute rigger and weather observer." These representative, highmlnded American women are subjected to as vile a barrage of slander as ever has been directed against any class of our citizens by our national In the opinion of Secretary of War vStimson and Representative Edith Nourse Rogers, who had the honor of sponsoring the legislation which created this splendid corps, there exists a vast conspiracy to sabotage the Waacs which Is supported by every subversive group In the country. The idea is to ruin their reputation with the public by smearing them with charges of immorality against which it has become necessary to provide prophylactic materials. No decent Ameiican will take any stock In any such slanderous rumors. But they are dangerous just the same. Such whispers tend to undermine the morals of all the men and women engaged in our war effort. Mrs. Rogers herself has been exposed from the beginning to abuse and threats, culminating in an almost unbelievable attempt to poison her. We have official word from those in position to know and who are responsible for the welfare both of our soldiers and of these auxiliaries that the charges are all completely false. If anybody whispers anything of the kind to you question his motives I These Waacs are representative merican women. Boston Herald. TRIBUTE IS PAID DR. MARSBY J. ROTH (Continued From Page One) Roth as a preacher of none of these but a man called of God to teach and preach. Dr Roth, speaking In retrospect, recalled incidents which occurred the first time he visited Hanover to preach a trial sermon, and of his acceptance of the call to become pastor of Trinity church and his early work In the congregation which then numbered about 300 persons. Dr. Roth was ordained in St Pauls Reformed church, Summit Hill, June 15, 1893, and in stalled as pastor of the Summit Hill charge He served that charge for two and one-half years before coming to Hanover, where he served as pastor of Trmity church from December 15, 1895, until his retirement on July 15, 1940. The pastor, the Rev. Howard E. Sheely, who presided during the program, spoke briefly and in conclusion presented Dr. Roth with a gift In behalf of the congregation, The program was Interspersed with musical selections, which Included a vocal solo, I Do Not Ask, Lord, Spross, Mrs. Viola Brodbeck Ffleagle, soprano, accompanied by Harold M. Frantz, with violin obligato played by Mrs Elizabeth Frantz; anthem, Lord, Our Governor, Gadsby, Senior choir; congrega tional hymns and selections by the Sunday school orchestra, under the direction of Emory A. Gobrecht. The platform was attractively decorated with palms and fems and a large basket of red carnations, the gift of the Eagle Fire Company, No. 2, as a tribute to Dr Roth, who has served as chaplain of that com' pany for many years.

Preceding the ceremony, Miss Mabel Hamm, Hanover, presented a short organ recital, and also played softly during the ceremony. The bride was attended by Miss Mary Margaret Reaver, Hanover, as maid of honor. The bridegroom had for his best man, Sgt. Clair Singerman, also stationed at the Aberdeen Proving Ground. Sarah Jane Uffelman, York, niece of the bridegroom, carried the brides tram. The bride was attired In a gown of white marquisette with tram, and wore a finger-tip veil held place by a bonnet trimmed in orange blossoms. She carried a bridal bouquet of orchids and stepanotis. The maid of honor wore a floor-length gown of gold taffeta, with matching headdress and carried a colonial bouquet of yellow rosebuds and delphinium. Follow mg the ceremony the newlyweds left on a short wedding trip. Upon their return the bridegroom will return to his duties at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, and the bride will occupy a newly-furnished apartment at 270 West Jackson street, York.

Allison, 881 Broadway, enroute to their home after spending ten days at Atlantic City, where they were gueU at the Devonshire hotel. (From the Philadelphia Inquirer) A wartime Flag Day Is a lot different from the holiday celebrated In times of peace. A day set apart once a year to honor the flag at special exercises was probably needed as a nudge to the latent patriotism of peacetime citizens. We don't require that nudge today. There Is no American, surely, who will not feel in his heart on this Flag Day of 1943 a particular sort of affection for his Nations colors, an intimacy bom of the tenseness of war, not evident In the carefree years before Pearl Harbor. The flag Is the symbol of our land and our Liberty and of the prayers and tears and blood that went Into the winning of the way of life that Is our own. In the far corners of the world American men are seeking to plant the flag in territory won from the enemy. In Tunisia. In Attu, In the Solomons and New Guinea they have replaced hostile banners with their own. They will not halt their march until their battle emblem waves In final triumph until the flags torn down In Manila, on Wake, regldor and Guam are raced aloft aloft again, to stay. Saluting the flag today we salute the brave men in all our Nations wars who have proudly fought even to the death to gain and to preserve for us the treasure called freedom. The flag of the Republics has never yet been lowered in final defeat. We won't let the latest war prove any exception. The Middle Sea (From The New York Times) Mediterranean Sea Is The Mediterranean Sea Is no longer just a battlefield. It has become once more a great highway. The blasting of the last island barriers out of the Sicilian Narrows ends one phase of the war as definitely as It inaugurates another. Final clearance of the passage from Gibraltar to Suez puts the Allies in control of a vast naval belt that, with the single Interruption of the enemy-held East Indian archipelago, girdles the circumference of the earth. The effect on global strategy Is bound to prove profound. From the beginning of the war Britain has fought desperately to keep the Middle Sea open, sacrificing even the armor of her island home to maintain the fluctuating battle. With our help the long battle has been won. From Spain to Tuikey the whole Axis flank lies open to attack. The attack Is already developing with such power as the air has never carried before. This summers fighting will map its course. Italy now seems the chosen victim, but wherever the blow falls It will be aimed at Germany. The remoter effects of the opening of the ancient waterway are not so obvious. But at the very moment we seem to be getting the better of the submarine we receive the equivalent of several million tons of shipping. The slow convoy passage around Africa is automatically canceled out. The Near East, South Russia and India can be supplied directly from our main bases In a third of the time It took before. This should mean a release of shipping in every theater of the war, Atlantic and Pacific included. Japan must be watching developments in the Mediterranean with anxious eyes. Once we establish our footholds on Southern Europe, the bulk of the Mediterranean fleet will be freed for action elsewhere. Madagascar stands ready as a halfway base for a strong naval concentration In the Indian Ocean. Then the Japanese fleet, already harried by our growing strength in the Pacific, would find itself caught between two fires, unable to extinguish either. Dominance of the Middle Sea is a long step toward victory In the East as well as the West. Zoot Suit (From The Washington Post) The West Coast naval authorities have it seems to us, shown great wisdom in their decision to make the whole city of Los Angeles forbidden territory to sailors on shore leave. This has followed the recent disorders between servicemen and gangs of fantastically clad young muggers. If the stories of assault, robbery and mayhem are correct, it would seem that the soldiers and Sailors had plenty of provocation. It would also seem that they began to take reprisals only after the mugging had got beyond the control of the local police. All the same vlgilantism Is a dangerous form of correction, especially when the vigilantes wear uniforms and act on their own responsibility. The muggers, too, wear a kind of uniform called a zoot suit, which enables the outraged sailors to distinguish them from presumably peaceable civilians. And yet it Is conceivable, though incongruous, that the wearer of a zoot suit might be otherwise Inoffensive and law-abiding. The whole situation Is full of explosive possibilities. It suggests a quasi-anarchic state of afltalrs, and too readily recalls the street fighting between groups of uniformed rowdies In Italy, Germany and elsewhere. As far as we can discover, the Los Angeles rioting has no political overtones, but It might easily and quickly acquire them. A large proportion of these zoot-suit muggers are young Mexicans and young Negroes, a fact which has already produced unpleasant International repercussions This racial complication is merely Incidental. It mainly arises because the economic situation of the Mexican and Negro elements of Los Angeles -offers a most favorable milieu for that increase in juvenile delinquency which has been noted In nearly ail sections of the country. Thus it Is well to remember that the phenomenon of muggerlsm Is by no means confined to Los Angeles and that It is reported In parts of the country where there are no Mexicans and few Negroes, and that it constitutes one of our mast formidable national problems. Receives Army Discharge Cpl. Paul S. Spangler, son of Mrs. Annie C. Spangler, Littles town, R. D. 2, who had been stationed at the United States Air Base. Balnbrldge, has received an honorable discharge because of being over 38 years of age and has returned to ome, Zoot Suit Riots Call For Efficient Police Work (Continued From Page One) law enforcement Into his own hands to the best of his ability. It Is a mistake to sympathize with these gangsters on the theory that they are misunderstood or the victims of social yearnings. The soldiers and sailors deserve the public sympathy and the protection of the law, ana the problem will not be solved by placing out of bounds permanently the attractive city areas, which, in much of Los Angeles are pretty sordid at best, lest they undertake to defend themselves and their wives and girls against unprovoked attacks by repulsive gangs of cowards who al ways outnumber their victims. It is the gangsters who must be restrained, and American cities must be policed so that others may go about In safety on the streets. Indirectly but unmistakably this cult got its inspiration from the degenerate exhibitions of youthful mass hysteria which began on Broadway with hundreds of them writhing, twitching and howling gibberish to the horrible squeals and squawks of the five jive bands. That all this was sheer, intentional affectation there is no doubt, for they behave so only in numbers, when they have an audience to show off to. The newspapers had a part In the promotion or the cult by treating it as a new expression of the spirit of American youth. Although the zoot-suit gangs are predominantly native Americans of Mexican blood, not Mexican sub' jects, that does not mean that there is hard feelings, although obviously there is a danger of indiscriminate distrust and hostility on both sides. A little dose of good quick police work by efficient detectives and cops should be the answer. ROBERT L. EHRHART DIES SUDDENLY AT 69 YEARS OF AGE (Continued From Page One) Grand Lodge of the order a dispensation for the institution of an Elks lodge In Hanover. This lodge was Instituted on March 7, 1902, at which time the late Charles J. Delone became the first exalted ruler.

Libel In Divorce Filed A libel In divorce was filed to-dav in the office of the Adams countv prothonothary bv John Butt, attomev for William L. Rockwell, Cumberland township, in nis action against Betty Lee Rockwell. Baltimore. Md The libel la returnable on July 19. a successful offensive toward Chungking. The Chinese said that the city's streets were strewn with dead after the attack, and that Ichang itself, the main advanced Japanese base on the Upper Yangtze, was Increasingly threatened with Isolation. In the latest of the aerial battles that have raged over the Solomons the Navy announced yesterday the possible destruction of 33 Japanese fighter planes out of a force of 40 or 50 encountered over the Russell Islands. Six U. S. planes were lost, but four of the pilots were rescued. The Japanese were believed on a mammoth "hunting seeking out American bombing formations proceeding to attack Japanese bases In the Solomons. They failed to find the bombers, which sent bombs screaming down on such targets as Bougainville. Flying Fortresses and Liberators struck at Kahili on Bougainville Island again Saturday, the Navy announced today. The Tokyo radio version of the Russell Island battle today asserted 33 American planes were shot down, and admitted the loss of only five of their own. Meanwhile in the North Pacific American power was being exerted relentlessly on Kiska Island, the Japanese base in the Aleutians which Is now occupied by American occupation of Attu. The Navy communique yesterday said Kiska was bombed five times Friday morning. From the Australian theater Allied aircraft continued their far-ranging attacks on Timor and other Japanese Island bases, but concentrated their greatest load nealy thirty tons of bombs on Vunakauii airdrome at Rabaul In New Britain.
