' \ The cockeyed effect is caused by gunfire. United Press Correspondent Walter Crunkito writes that luxury is tho background for the bloodshed at Vegltel—where an American airborne outfit is struggling for control of a vital bridge acioss the Zuid Wi'.Iems canal. Cronkitu says that the stamping- ground for the men not in battle is tho milling plant of a co-operative society. There they eat -at n huge table which would do credit to Cecil B. DoMille. . The table is mahogany. The furniture is leather covered. Indirect lighting casts a soft glow over the murals on the walls. And if the table and the furniture and the wnlls weren't shaking, you might think you were huivti.' or at least in Hollywood. .But the U-P correspondent says that thy Runfii'e between tho Gorman RS guns and thr: tanks keeps i lie place rocking, And when yon look out into the street, it's plain 10 see that a forthright battle is going on. The luxury is just .a sel.'Jr'.g. A bit unreal—just like Hollywood.

Laurel gave no further explanation of. his somewhat startling statement In his Manila radio ud- clresH today. The puppet government in the Philippines declared war on the United States and Britain last week when the jittery Japanese called the American Invasion "Imminent." Laurel implied that a threatened uprising of loyal Filipinos might be responsible for his unexpectedly stiff attitude against the Japs. It also is possible the Jnps are not willing to trust Filipino troops in action against Americans. The Philippine president said his puppet regime would co-operate^ with the Japanese in every other way. But he stressed the Filipino constabulary would be used only to maintain domestic peace and order ..and not to take up arms against American Invasion forces. Meanwhile an unconfirmed cn-^ einy report says u large American' task force is plowing through the waters east of the Philippines. Radio Tokyo, announces the armanda. first Was sighted on Sunday but gives no details on its Apparent destination. A task force heading north might moan danger to the Bonln and Volcano island chains—the last out- pasts guarding Japan. Or possibly Admiral Nimitx is planning new blo^vs against the Philippines. Radio Tokyo announces new American landings on the eastern shore of Peleliu. The enemy broadcast said the reinforcements swarmed ashore yesterday. On Pnleliu the remnants of the Jap garrison—now numbering less than 2,000—are cut up into two isolated pockets constantly hammered by Army troops and the Marines. During 13 days of heavy fighting in the; invasion of the Palaus the enemy lost 12 men to each Amercian killed. News reports on yesterday's B-"9 raids reveal tho Supcrforts hit throe other important targets bo- sides Anshan—the Manchuriun steol center. The giants of the air struck out from secret China bases to blast dock areas in Diiiron—a large port in Manchuria. Others hit Loyang and Kaifong in occupied China. All of the acriul battle-wagons returned safely. The crews reported :tnti-aircraft fire was light and there was little fighter opposition. . A hr.'ivy cover of clouds over tiie stnol factories of Anshan prevented Allied observers from telling much about the 1 effects of the, raid. But observers reported the: result's "good' 'in the other three attacks. I rtowcver, throughout the Pacific I a long hard fight is. still ahead, j American military leaders—in-1 tot-viewed by the OWI—predict it will take from one to one and a h.ilf years after the defeat of Germany to wring unconditional surrender from Japan.

(lnUtriiittl»nnl) Says Way To End War Is To Stop Making Armaments Los Angeles, Sept. 27—(UP)— One man says the way to put an end to war is to stop the manufacture of armaments. That man is Carveth Wells—who has had u varied career of exploring, engineering and authoring. Since Pearl Harbor hcjs concentrated on lecturing on' strategic materials for tho \V:n\ Department. Wells say^ we must prevent the Germans, Japs and Italians from making arms of any kind. And to assure peaceful intentions in these countries. Wells suggests that all abrasive materials necessary .for the manufacture of armaments be confiscated. The lecturer says that the league of nations should license all imports and exports to and from these countries.
