Nation-WideJla^ Gasoline, Oil Is More Probable Plan May Be In ~ Effect Shortly 'ByThe tTnlteij Pr»«5) WASHINGTON, Feb. 13 — Nation-wide rationing of civilian gasoline and oil supplies appeared more probable today as unofficial spokesmen revealed such a move v.-as being considered to meet the growing transportation problem. The Office of the Petroleum Coordinator said no official rationing plan hsr, been perfected, but OPA spokesmen admitted procedures have been worked out tentatively for use in the event oetroleum must in the future be added to the list of rational commodities. Plan Subject To Chang* The plan now being considered to assure adequate supplies'for the war effort in spite of recent tanker sinkings and transfers is subject to change as the war situation changes, it was pointed out. At iiresent, however, it is expected petroleum rationing will begin in about three weeks. At that time spokesmen say. first steps will probably be taken to curtail consumption, and later the OPA will he asked to set up a rationing system utilizing coupons similar to sugar stamps distributed through local boards. "Joy Riding" Uses Gas Civilian supply officials in the War Production board said approximately 30 per cent of civilian petroleum consumption is used for "joy riding" on Sundays, tourist trips and similar non-essential purposes. Trucks and buses are considered essential petroleum consumers by defense officials, as well as all "eligibles" under the auto rationing plan. Other car owners and petroleum users, however, may be sharply curtailed under a gasoline coupon plan.

To Enlarge Victories To the extent that the darki] German sea success forces increas eu Anglo-American naval conceh trations in the Atlantic at the ex p'pnse of the Pacific defenses i will certainly help Japan enlarge her victories. It could seal the fate of the Dutch Indies. London commentators make no bones about the seriousness for the Allied cause of British failure to destroy those German war craft The whys of that fresh disaster as of the ineffective defense of Sin Sapore is British business. It is z business, however, that piled on top of the Singapore debacle couk bring Prime Minister Winston Churchill's head to the politica block. Hitler gambled mightily — and unquestionably won—in ordering the bold dash through Dovet strait. The skill and daring with which that coup was executed must command admiration; yet u speaks also of desperation The risk was so great, the chance of success EO small that some critical aspect of Nazi or Axis strategy must be involved.

The stark fact that confronts London and Washington is that Hitler at this moment, may have the most powerful surface fleet now in the Atlantic. He has certainly one and probably three German battleships of the powerful Bismark type. The two 26,000-tonners which escaped from Brest are not their equal in armor or gunpower or cruising range, but are formidable antagonists. At least two oE Germany's original trio of 10,000-ton pocket battleships must be counted in. There are. in. addition an unknown number of German cruisers. Strength Not Known What Anglo-American naval strength in the Atlantic is has not been disclosed. Most of it certainly is widely dispersed on convoy and patrol duty. The -British Mediterranean fleet and the American Pacific fleet both may have been lately reinforced from the Atlantic. Lacking those factors, accurate assessment of the effect . of the Dover strait disaster is impossible. It is beyond question, however, that its success has thrust new and grave military problems on the United Nations leadership at a critical time, to say nothing of possible political repercussions upon neutrals or. on Britain's home front.

The Navy assumed jurisdiction an official fight song for the Ked is i a "l!3«l^ art .f5:^ n<1 ^: Raiders and Texa * Tech students, nation proceedings which will force removal of r,Jl residents including many Japanese in the island's fishing colony. Japanese Lire Thsr« Rear Admiral R. S. Holmes, commandant of the llth naval district, said he expected the condemnation to be effective within about 30 days. Only a handful of white persons live on the island, but hundreds of Japanese live in ramshackle two and three room huts built of plywood, corrugated iron and driftwood. Holmes said Secretary of Navy Frank Knox instructed him to take the action "under authority granted by the president in an executive order." The move was made, the Navy announcement said, "to protect from injury or destruction all national defense 'material; national defense premises and national defense utilities.". Important Defense Area Terminal island, hub of. shipbuilding and shipping and site of an important naval air station, was not included in the recent Department of Justice order, establishing restricted areas' on the Pacific seaboard. Before the outbreak of war, an estimated 2,100 Japanese,"; mostly fishermen, lived there. Two weeks ago, however, the Federal Bureau of Investigation evicted 500" aliens and 500 others moved voluntarily. Reeves field, a naval air station ranking in size with the Canal zone and Sitka, Alaska, is located on the island in Los Angeles harbor. Just off the air 'station, big warships often lie at anchor.
