D. White, who had been in China •ince 19S2, has just returned to the United States. For five years he watched mount- Inp tension bet-/cen Japan and China from the vantage point of Peiping;. When fighting began in June, 1937, he was on the scene of battle. Since then he has flown, ridden or walked over much of North China, Inner Mongolia and Manchuria with the Japanese army, covering the war and observing life in the Japanese-occupied territory- NEW YORK, Feb. 16—Mr. Pingj Chang could be a lot worse off. He wouldn't admit it publicly, but he knows it. Mr. Ping is what the Chinese might call the average man in Japanese-occupied China. Mr. Ping reads his papers every day and in spite of censorship has a pretty good idea of how the conquered people in Europe, for Instance, are faring. He knows that he's been getting off comparatively easy under the Japanese army. Just the same he doesnt like Grins And Bears It But he grins—as for centuries he has grinned at invaders, bandits, floods, famines, pestilences— and he bears it. Behind that grin a lot goes on. When I left Peiping a few- weeks ago you could see it anywhere—this smouldering, gnawing hatred for the invader. The illiterate Chinese ricksha coolie puts down his Japanese fare with an apparently harmless joke. The Japanese, delighted at this show of Chinese friendship, responds in broken Chinese and goes away feeling that perhaps Japanese and Chinese can be irier.ds after all. But the Chinese has added an extra subtle inflection to one word, perhaps, and has changed his pleasantry into a deadly personal insult. If there are no other Chinese around to hear it, he loses no time in telling his friends. The Chinese all feel better for having insulted a Japanese and gotten away with it. If the Japanese notice It, they never show It Japanese are consistently overcharged in Chinese shops whenever the Chinese think they can get away with it. Japanese, who despise bargaining (which the Chinese love), pay far higher prices than Chinese do, rather than stoop to haggling. Mr. Ping and his fellow shopkeepers regard such an attitude as bordering on feeblemindedness, end derive whatever cold comfort they can from making a Japan- Alps Are Peaceful MASS CELEBRATED: High in the sunlit Swiss Alps, yet un- darkened by war, a parish priest celebrates the holy mass, a symbol of peace atop a continent covered with conflict. Occasion was the placing of a great wooden cross at the peak of 12,969-foot Mount Bietschhorn, above the Lotschen valley. I Interpreting The War News- ese—any Japanese—pay through the nose. After 3% years of trying to make friends with the Chinese by conquering them, the Japanese have apparently hope that the abandoned the Chinese would eventually welcome and like them. Prince Fumimaro Konoye, Japan's harried wartime premier, recently declared that no settlement of the "China incident" is in sight. Began Decade Ago Serious anti-Japanism began only 10 years ago in China. Even at the beginning of the present war in 1937, the large mass of the Chinese people showed the Japanese, as such, no real animosity because they scarcely knew they existed. If Chinese thought about the Japanese at all, they thought of them occasionally as strange people from the east, smaller than the Chinese, who centuries ago had come to China to learn to read and write and who still bear certain cultural resemblances. Even after the war began and XjVCil tllLCL LJiC W Ol ucciaii a**u •».«• ." T * Japan occupied large areas of stands against him forever in the China, the vast, hungry laboring classes frequently welcomed the Japanese as new employers who provided jobs at relatively good pay. China had been invaded many times before and always survived. Mr. Ping was sure his people again would come out on top. He still is. Best of all peoples In the world, the Chinese can cover up their feelings and "co-operate" with a - • -- pjng contends smile. But Mr. privately that Return To World War Labor Drive Studied By EDWARD E. BOMAR Harry Hopkins' return with, the latest plea for "lois of help" for Great Britain appears certain to focus renewed attention on the con- troverted issue of turning over more United States destroyers to Britain. Less certain, but both likely and logical, is that the needs of both nations will dictate a return to some of the methods of the World War to speed the construction of the swift naval craft which may decide the outcome of the war at sea. Fervor Enlisted One of the most effective methods of 1917-18 to cope with a situation paralleling the present was to enlist the fervor of shipyards workers. And means to stir their enthusiasm already are being sought by defense officials who champion Uje idea of making destroyer construction more of a crusade than a tape boys if they'd just take It off our hands. At that, we had a fairly easy time of it. The officials courteously did their best to speed things up because they knew I was an American correspondent and was trying to catch a boat. Mr. Ping would have a much harder time of it. So would Mr. Suzuki, the Japanese man in the Chinese street. There are more than a quarter of a million Mr. Suzukis in China now, ..ust trying to get along. They get pushed around by the bureaucracy just as much as Hr. Ping does. Red tape snarls up nearly all doings. The Japanese and the regional Chinese governments they sponsor are slowly closing in on every form of activity, either through special taxation, new sets of restrictions, or officially sponsored guild organizations. Guilds Are Supreme Manchoukuo is regarded as a fair index to what occupied China is heading for. In Manchoukuo every laborer has to belong to an official guild and be in good standing or he just doesn't labor any more. He is fingerprinted and card-indexed and any irregularity "co-operation", anese. files. Already, In occupied China, Chinese who move from one town to another have to carry identification provided by the Japanese, and must submit to humiliating personal searches at railway stations. They also must have travel permits from the Chinese police. Such permits are not granted until the Chinese who wants to travel gets a shop to guarantee his behavior. The shop guarantee is an old Chinese idea revived by the Jap- means obeying Japanese orders—I Occupied China had good crops last summer, so that there has no more, no less. Mr. Ping looks forward to the time when his part of China will be free again. He hopes and talks privately, but he does little about Mr. Ping is so busy making a precarious living for his family that he thinks of little else. Above all he hesitates to involve himself or his family by helping out the Chinese guerilla agent in his midst. Occupied China is naturally poor because of the war. Mr. Ping has a hard time making both ends meet. He eats poorer food and less of it. Uses Pa t <er Money Mr. Ping uses a new Japanese- sponsored paper currency with which has come a four fold rise in the price of daily necessities, compensated for only partly by about a 100 per cent rise in wages. Industries are not doing so well. Factories not blown up during the fighting are operated in one way or another by the Japanese, but raw materials are scarce, new machinery nearly non-existent, and markets and distribution channels are partly gone. None of this makes for prosperity. Neither does the mass of red tape which has to be unwound before most normal business transactions of any size can go through. i The red tape Is there to protect left, and promote Japan's "co-prosperity Woe in East Asia." It tends to channelize all business worth going after into Japanese hands. Chinese abhor red tape. If the Japanese mind it, they are at least accustomed to it. Just before leaving Peiping I got a taste of what Mr. Ping has to put up with in the way of red tape. I spent two whole days in shuttling from office to office getting the necessary permits to sefi my motorc By the time the In -I l had SPCllt tvvo da >' s in endless formalities and fill- uIiH°!lSl Ue 0 s «? nn f ir r ^ le oiiicials to finish ve were in a fair ive the car to the red been no real repetition this winter of the serious food shortage caused in 1940 by reduction of food imports and by floods. But food still is partially rationed and three times its prewar price. Other necessities like cotton piece eoods are frequently five times as dear. Practically all imports from outside Japanese "coproserity" sphere are disappearing rapidly, only such absolute essentials as petroleum products and wheat flour are allowed to be imported. There isn't enough foreign exchange to cover even these necessities. Oil dealers, for instance, are said to have been allotted only one fourth of their normal foreign exchange requirements. The case-hardened foreigner who has lived in China a long time moans at the club that he can't get his imported whisky and favorite brand of cigarettes any more, but privately he admits that the Japanese probably are right m trying to conserve foreign exchange to buy food and other necessities. What really has the foreigners worried are more and more new restrictions which operate—whether intended to or not— to curtail his business activity and lake the profits out of what he has When the United States Kovernment adrised all unneeded Americans to leave China and Japan last fall, the idea canie as a great shock to the majority of Americans concerned. There had been no real anti-Americanism apparent—none amons the Chinese and very little among the Japanese. It was just getting harder and harder for an Amencan to carry on his business, that was all. Most stayed on, and all «, A - ry a the Americans who returned to Ous country were women and children. But some American bus - nessmen secretly welcomed the °vacuation "suggestion" of the state department as a chance to mere day's work. Britain's peril is pointed up, meanwhile, by the latest attack by a Nazi surface raider on an Atlantic convov, followed by the Berlin claim that 37,000 tons of British shipping have just been sunk by surface craft, U-boats and air bombs. In 1917, with the U-boats knifing at helpless North Atlantic convoys at an alarming rate, the United States virtually suspended the construction of battleships, cruisers and other ships to concentrate on destroyers. This time, however, no official disposition has been shown to divert men and materials from the two-ocean fleet which has been undertaken as vital to American security. More ways could be put up, but they require months, skilled labor is limited, training takes time, and machinery and arms are bottlenecks. The same difficulties stand in the way of undertaking the mass construction of smaller, slower and less effective corvettes, which both England and Canada are turning out to combat U-boats. There remains only speeding up work on the destroyers already contracted for and others to follow. Substantial progress has been made to that end. In normal peacetime, building one of the latest-type 1,600-ton craft requires two years or more. This time was cut to 10-months in Ihe recent case of the Edison, but Secretary Knox has voiced doubt that a substantial further reduction can be made by means already employed. Schedules Advanced Under somewhat comparable circumstances 23 years ago, the patriotic fervor of shipyard workers advanced schedules amazingly. At the Mare Island, Calif., Navy Yard, the destroyer Ward was completed in 70 days, which Josephus Daniels, secretary, observed were like "a continuous Liberty loan rally." Six auxiliary shipyards were being rushed in the meantime, but they were finished too late. At the end of 1919, in one of these, at Squantum, Mass., the Reid was built in just 45H working days. Altogether, -in 15 months, 93 destroyers were completed, aside from hundreds of submarine chasers and other lesser naval vessels. Style Changes There are numerous reasons why he World War records cannot be .ouched now, with all the shortcuts. Present-day destroyers, as Mr. <nox noted, are "young cruisers." They are nearly twice as large as World War types, more heavily armed against air raiders as well as surface and undersea foes, range farther and are much more sea- ivorthy in heavy weather. Too, the Ward and Reid were built somewhat as "stunts" for effect on national morale, officials confessed. It may be, nevertheless, as some lop officials believe, that some of the same spirit behind their rivets may be tapped to advance present ••iChedules. These schedules call for the net addition to the fleet of 14 or 15 destroyers this year, 45 next, and—at rates projected now—95 in 1943. How useful they will be two or three years hence hinges heavily on what happens in the meantime. make a clean break and close up businesses which already were dead or rapidly dying. From Atop The Corral Fence Rodeo rules were found inadequate yesterday when Asbury Schell and Joe Bassett lost the team roping championship because a front foot of their steer got caught in the heeler's loop. But rodeo officials were bound by the judge's decision and gave them "no time". Phoenix rodeo fans saw a cow roped—and held—by the nose in the wild cow milking event yesterday by Champie StockdaJe. The noose went around the cow's head but failed to clear her horns. It drew tight around her nose, however, and held her until another "hand" could get hold of her head to hold her while Champie got the milk. The wild cow milking brought forth another miracle a few minutes later when Sonny Handcock of Roswell N. M, caught his cow by one horn and managed to hold her until his helper could get her head. The biggest laugh of yesterday's show came when Padgett Berry of Carrizqzo, N. M., caught his cow nicely in front of the judges' stand, jumped down and ran to her, only to discover that he had forget to bring along a bottle to get the milk. Disgustedly, he let her go and called it all off. Rivaling Berry's costly mistake in humor (apologies to Jazzbo, the clown) was the presentation of a special prize to Pete Grubb of Florence for being the best "fisherman cowboy"—in recognition of his ability of fishing in the mud with a rope. The prize—a brand new rope threaded through a fishing pole—was given by Harry Taylor. Fort Worth, Tex., who has served as a timer at every Phoenix rodeo. The mud was so thick in the arena yesterday that Bill McMackin tied pieces of red cloth over his boots to keep them clean. But the mud did not bother the trick and fancy riders—in fact it's good for the complexion according to Bernice Taylor of Phoenix, who hung by one foot, her head inches above the churned-up mire, as her horse sped the length of the arena in one exhibition. The only trouble with it, she said, is, it gets all over you. Although he won first place In the sheriffs roping contest, Lon Jordan, Martcopa's sheriff, awarded a cup to Victor Christensen of Greenlee county, for the best time for sheriffs outside Maricopa county. Bill Richardson, Gila county sheriff, won two prizes—a $10 hat for making the best time on one steer, which he tied in 23 1/10 seconds, and another S10 prize for the worst time— 92 3/10 seconds. Incidentally, Lon's time for the entire show was no time the first day; 52 4/10 seconds the second day; 29 4/10 seconds the third day; and 25 5/10 seconds yesterday. At least he appears to be improving in his roping—probably so he can successfully defend his world's championship at Tucson this week. o English Lose 82 On Ship LONDON, Feb. 16— (AP)—The admiralty announced today that 82 officers and men lost their lives in the sinking of the 9,100-ton cruiser Southampton, which the British said had to be sent to the bottom of the Mediterranean after a Nazi dive-bomber attack January 10. The total dead and wounded was given by the admiralty as 93. The vessel's normal complement was about 700. In her last engagement, the British said, the Italians lost a destroyer and the Germans at least a dpzen dive bonibers. (The Southampton was reported hit in the same general engagement in which the British aircraft carrier Illustrious was damaged by dive-bombers. (The vessel, the fourth cruiser lost by the British since the outbreak of war, was said to have been sunk by the fire of other British ships after flames broke out while she was being towed, crippled, to port.) o Bernice 'McLain Commits Suicide Mrs. Bernice McLain, 30 years old, was found fatally wounded yesterday morning in the living room of her home, 34 East Mitchell drive. Harry Westfall, coroner, said it was suicide and no inquest would be necessary. Mrs. McLain was found by her lusband, Jerry McLain, assistant sports editor of the Arizona Republic, who had been asleep in another room and was awakened by the shot. One bullet had been fired through her head from a large-caliber pistol, which lay beside her. No note was found, but domestic trouble was blamed. Surviving, in addition to her hus- jand, are two sisters, Mrs. George lelmer, Sacramento, Calif., and VIrs. John Henry, Bisbee. Mrs. McCain was a native of Bisbee. Funeral services have not been arranged.

Expenses A professional man may deduct all necessary expenses incurred in the pursuit of his profession. These include the cost of supplies used in dis practice, office rent, cost of light, water, fuel, and telephone in lis office, the hire of office assistants, and expenses paid in the operation and repair of an automobile, based upon the proportion of time it is used for professional purposes. Many physicians use their residences both as their offices and Lheir homes. In such instance the physician may deduct as a business expense the rental value of the rooms occupied for office purposes if he actually pays rent, and also the cost of light and heat furnished :hese rooms. Also, he may deduct a portion of the wages paid domestic servants whose time is partly occupied in caring for these rooms. Membership dues in professional societies are deductible. Physicians and dentists who keep in their waiting rooms current magazines and newspapers for the benefit of their patients may deduct this item as a Business expense. The cost of professional journals for the taxpayer's own use is also a deductible item. The cost of technical books is not a deductible item, being a capital expenditure, but a proportionate amount for each year's depreciation of the books may be deducted. Depreciation may also be taken on office furniture and equipment. Insurance premiums on office or other professional equipment and lability insurance may be deducted. A premium paid for automobile liability insurance should be apportioned and that part of tha premium attributable to business may je deducted as a business expense Births Hit High Mark WASHINGTON, Feb. 16—(AP) An estimate that 2,350,000 babies were born in the United States last year, the highest number since 1930, came today from the census bureau. This was' approximately 100,000 greater than the 1939 total and lifted the national birth rate from 17.3 to 18 for every 1,000 of population. The rate was the lowest in 1933. when it stood at 16.5. Nevertheless, the bureau said that the long-range birth rate trend still was downward. It attributed the 1940 rise largely to the fact that persons born of marriages during the immediate post- World War period—which saw a sharp upturn, in weddings—had reached the reproductive ages. Another possible factor, the bureau said, was the increase in marriages which normally accompanies better economic conditions. The increased birth rate was accompanied by a decrease in the infant mortality rate from 48 to 47.9 deaths for each 1,000 births. However, the overall death rate increased from 10.6 to 10.8 deaths for each 1,000 population. Harley J. Curtis Called By Death Harley J.

Sweet Tooth Brings Economy ********* Problem Of Too Much Meat And Beans Is Solved By Army Mess Sergeant SCOTT FIELD, 111., Feb. 16— (AP)—Mothers need no longer fret about their boys eating too many beans in the army. A mess sergeant with a sweet tooth has introduced a new-type diet here that makes the old-time chow look like a backdoor handout. What's more, his "chocolate bar" theory of fattening soldiers has led to an experiment in which he hopes to show where the army might save money on grocery bills. His method, which officers at this air corps communications training base are observing with interest, is simply this: More sweets, carefully placed, and less meat. In this way Sgt. A. J. Bussel claims he can make a hungry soldier happy on 39 !4 .cents a day. "That was my average for last month," "he said, explaining the figure naturally would vary with fluctuating food prices. The army's standard grub allotment is 40 cents a day per man. Holding out a mere half cent a day for each man in the army would amount to something like $7,000 a day. "Don't get the idea that I cram the boys on sweet stuff," Sergeant Bussel said. "That's not it at all. But by systematically working in more sweets than one ordinarily expects in a soldier's mess I am able to cut down on meat portions and still set out a more tasty and better balanced meaL" Tasty is the word. The soldiers in Bussel's company are served chocolate cream pie at least once a week, lemon pie, homemade cake, rich puddings and plenty of fresh fruit and cereal. They are even beginning to talk about making fudge. "The minute I cut down on sweets," the veteran army cook explained, "they start yelling for more meat." At that, they get soup, roast beef or pork, fried chicken (once a week), steak, veal loaf and a wide assortment of good salads and vegetables. They still get beans, too.
