PAGE SIX + + + The WAR TODAY + + + BY DEWITT MACKENZIE A truce finaly lias halted 'or at Jeast tempered; the clash at arms between the Greek Leftist insurgents and British troops, but we can hardly expect this to end such a violent eruption, especially since Greece is politically volcanic by nature-i-and has become one of the nottest of tiic inttrnational hot-spots. Howf.ver, ihc Allies will breathe • iisU -r with even teinp<irury cessa- liun of li pulitlto-militiiry imbroglio which has stirred tiic emotions of ihi UnltPd Nutians deeply.

Mr. Churchill bar, replied that he i.-. trynig lo help Greece, that Britain will resist any attempt to " by violence a dictatcr- siiip" in tli'i little Balkan state, and that the Creeks will be permitted to choose their own foim of government.

The next big .-^tep in the Greek affair—provided the lid can be kept on the fighting—presumably will be the holding of a post-war plebi.scite to decide whether Greece is to retain the monavcliy or adopt some other form of government. It looks like a Red sun.^et for the throne. King George of Greece, who re- eently agi'ced to a regency pending the plebi.<^c;te. presumably will have thp strong b!esshi!?s of London.

CAP)—There seems to be some Justification for the basketball coache.s' complaint that, allowing a player a fifth personal foul has resulted in a rougher game . . . After observing an army game from wlilch four players were ejected and 48 free throws were tried, S-Sgt. Sid Qray asked what was the greatest number of fouls ever made in a game old or new rules . . . There's no answer at hand, but over the post week-end, St. John's and Temple were charged with 38 personal fouls, Oklahoma and Nebraska with 35 and Oreat Lakes and Marquette with 33. Colgate's 20 fouls against Army gave the Cadet.s 28 free throws . . . Any better figures to offer? You Can't Libel Brooklyn In the current "Inter-American" maga'^lne, Janice N.

The article deals largely with squabbles, pop-bottle pitching, knife-wielding and a final argument when Mexico's team had to forfeit the deciding game because most of the players walked out in jirotest of a Venezuelan umpire's decision ... In conclusion, she quotes an exultant fan: "Caracas: Until now famed as the birthplace of Bolivar; hereafter to be known as the Brooklyn of South America."

Within a few months the late General (Little John) Mctaxas, minister of war, established himself as the real ruler of Greece. On his advice George dls- -solved parliament. Al! political parties were abolished and the constitutional rights of the people were ,suspended. Metaxas became dictator—one of the toughest Europe hais .seen—and set out to establish a totalitarian state like Italy. Greece was an unhappy place a.s I know from per.sonal experience in that country at the time. That was the position when the war forced George to leave Greece again.

(AP)—Cigarettes, which since last fall have been one of the nation's wartime hard-to-get commodities, will be available at the rate of about 15 daily to civilians under a voluntary rationing system planned by the National Association of Tobacco distributors. The association estimated the average daily civilian consiunption last year was slightly more than 17 cigarettes. The association, with a membership of 2,800 which controls distribution of cigarettes to the country's 1.250,000 retail outlets, said last night that a card system of Lssulng smokes will be Inaugurated within two weeks. The plan, described as designed to achieve orderly allotmeu!. would mark the first time an industry attempted to ration in wartime a scarce commodity. Under the system numbered ration cards will be issued by retailers to consumers who will be required to sign a declaration that they have not obtained cards elsewhere. The rationing will not be attempted at outlets for transient trade—hotels, railroad and bus stations—or at chain stores. About 13 per cent ol the available cigarettes are sold at these places, the association esli- mated. i In New York the plan was characterized by such words as "im- fair," "impractical," and "ridiculous," by representatives of two large retail chain outlets, A Union News Company spokesman deficrlbed the plan as "ridicu- Icus." and "unfair," and added flatly: "Such a ,scheme couldn't possibly operate—not at our .stands at any rate."

Konev appeared to be heading .straight for the Warsaw-Sileslan line on a sector 20 miles wide. The Berlin radio declared the Ru.sslans had sprung a new offensive in the Jaslo area of southern Poland, about 85 miles .southeast of Kielce, and 70 east of Krakow. This apparently was intended to guard the left flank of the drive into the Warsaw-Krakow line. This drive into the 'Warsaw-Krakow line was meeting the first mass of German resen'es now, however, and progres.s may be slowed. If the Russians interfere with traffic over the trunk railway southwest of •Warsaw, they would strike one of the biggest blows to Nazi hopes of holding the Polish capital. crippling an area from which the Japanese likely would be able to bolster their slipping Philippine holdings. Wide Air Sweepti Admiral Nimltz reported othei widespread raids by army, navy and marine land-based planes, including the 68-ton bombing of the once- formidable Japanese base at Truk in the Caroline islands.

(APl- Willie Pep of Hartford,, the world's featherweight boxing champ (New York version) who has a medical discharge from the navy, today faces a pre-induction physical examination here, the result of which may set a trend for the entire sports world. Pep, who served a nine months hitch in the navy, is the first big- name athlete called by his draft board for re-examlnation since the recent announcement of the selective service plans to force non-essentially employed 4-Fs Into war work. If Willie is accepted for army service, despite his navy medical discharge, it might mean that hundreds of professional athletes, now classified as 4-F, may be placed in khaki or blue. War Moblllzer James F. Byrnes maintalas that if an athlete is able to engage In strenuous physical sport that he should also be able, in effect, to carry a gun. It has been argued that If men wounded In action can be sent buck to battle lines that star athletes with ordinary physical defects can be used In some branch of war service.
