CAP)— The basketball situation at Utah, national champion last year, looks bleak, bleaker, bleakest. It was bad when the army grabbed off two of the team's most capable reserves.

The Japanese are powerfully set for the clash, and may be expected to make a stand for this i.slrind, which Ls one of the keystones of their war structure. Their light resistance against our landing may have bren due in part to doubt as to just where MacArthur expected to put his main force ashore. However, it's not unlikely that General Yama- .shita. the enemy commander, de- ci.ded he would serve his interest.^ belter if he didn't try to defend the b(':iche;; under what he knew would be un absolutely annihilating bar- rape of bombs find shells. We may be sure that Yamashita iias his plans for counter-attack. And he's a soldier of great capabilities, as witness his serasatlonal con- obest of the Malay peninsula and Singapore, MacArthur is up against a foe who is worthy of his steel and one who is bound to battle to a finish for this vital base.

Patterson told congress today that inductions for the armed forces for the first six months of 1945 will total 900.000 men, as a minimum. Urging quick enactment of national service legislation, Patterson advised the house mlUfary committee that only through some form of national service could the manpower needs for the war effort be met during the next six months. Tliese needs, he declared, include 900,000 men for the armed services and 700.000 others for war produc- fJon and war-supporting activities. "The only complete and adequate leelslatlon," he said, would be national war service legislation "of the most comprehensive nature." Such legislation, he stated, would shorten the war and minimize the of life.

(AP)—A vast program of federal aid for state school systems was advanced in congress today. Under the proposal, the government would provide $300,000,000 annually for outright grants to the states. Chairman Barden (D., N. C), of the house education' committee promptly labeled the issue "a very controversial one." Carrying the endorsement of the National Education Association and nearly all of the 48 state education associations, the plan was introduced as a bill by house majority whip Ramspeck (D., Ga.) The bill's purpose, the Georgian said, "is to meet financing emergencies, to raise substandard teaching salaries and to equalize school opportunities in the states." Under its provisions, the states would not have to match funds, but would be required to maintain present educational expenditures. Ramspeck emphasized the measure provides the federal government mast not "direct, supervise or control" state school requirements with respect to the program.

Monday he won the Los Angeles open chilled by ocean winds and fog. EarUer in the winter tour he sloshed through downpours to win the Portland, Ore., open.
