By HAROLD GUARD ; United Press Staff Writer . ALLIED HEADQUARTERS, Java, Feb. 26 (Delayed) — Java's zero hour seemed near today, as the aero hour set by Japan har : . come for China, .Hongkong and Malaya. I saw the Japanese Army in action in China and in Malaya; I was able to follow each step of the Japanese in their attack on Hong- kong because of my intimate knowledge of that territory where I was long stationed. Java now is the intended victim of the Japanese war machine. Knew When To Attack ' In China, the Japanese drove straight to their main objectives. In both China and Malaya the Japanese Army, with .the aid of a smooth intelligence service, always knew exactly when to attack, even through terrain which the defenders considered invulnerable. This was shown when the Japanese first started to isolate Hong- kong in 1938 by Bias bay up the coast with the idea of taking Canton. The British were sure the Japanese would move up the Pearl river because of the difficult terrain on both sides. But the Japanese landed at what proved the most logical place and mov: ed by land on Canton. In nine days they had captured Canton. "Silver Bullets" Effective Silver bullets—money for fifth column activities—aided them as it did later in Malaya. Foreign under-estimation of the capabilities of the Japanese army 'has always been one of Japan's strongest weapons. • Last Dec. 5 Air Chief Marshal Sir Robert Brook-Popham, then British commander in chief in the .Far East, said at an off-the-record press conference that war would •., .not come to Malaya and he ridi- ; culed reports of the presence of 500 Japanese planes in French •Indo-China. Three days later the •Japanese attacked. : The month before Sir Shenton ; Thomas, governor ot Singapore, said he was not worried and never _ had been. Methods Ar» Simpl* . Giving the higher-ups such com- vplacent impressions is part of Ja' pan's methods.. : The military methods are simple—to employ a minimum of lequipment, patterened for the peculiar conditions to be faced, with *• .a maximum of ammunition for the lightest and most effective weapons. British soldiers found their own gear unwieldy in the Malaya jungle, but the Japanese, wearing nothing but-a singlet, shorts and -an amunition bandolier, and able -to live off the land, were able to .move swiftly. • • Losses Disregarded '. - In Malaya, the prelude to invasion was an airplane bombing of Singapore and a landing diver- 'sion of the Kelantan coast on the ^northeastern side of the peninsula. The British repelled the first at-tack. The Japanese flung in rein- forcemeats regardless of losses, in order to compel the defenders to 'give their full attention to the •area, » Meanwhile, the strongest Japanese forces crossed the Thailand- Malsya border and infiltrated down the peninsula to key points ;on the west side which actually ;\vera'under attack from the rear while the British empire forces •were jubilantly reporting the repulse of the east coast attack. . • Then, the Japanese moved swift- Market Reports The Nation Over . . .

Destroy Air Strength In the first hours they destroyed more than half of the imperia air strength on the ground and ob tained aerial superiority in the first week.

The British theory that the Malaya jungle was impenetrable might have been correct had not ihe Japanese living in Malaya acquainted themselves with every jungle pass • by fraternizing with the natives.

Used Every Available Means The Japanese used every available means o£ transportation. I saw a machine gun mounted on a tradesman's delivery bicycle. Advancing, a Japanese army uses everybody and everything i captures. Retreating it annihilates everybody and everything, including itself. Broadly speaking, military ex perts do not regard the Japanese as good soldiers. For the most part, fatalism replaces courage in them. They do not fear death. I have seen a prisoner demanding the means with which to kill himself rather than be a captive. But they seem to abhor cold steel. British troops said the Japanese could not take it in bayonet fighting. The Japanese emperor's guards were the only unit which put up a really good bayonet fight. Numerical Superiority Discipline is good while the going is good, but I have heard stories of disintegration during the infrequent occasions when,- in Malaya, the defenders delivered counter blows. The Japanese depend greatly on numerical superiority and they totally disregard losses of manpower. A British officer told me in Malaya that the defense was failing because there were too many Japanese. No official figures have been issued for Japanese losses in Malaya but official British reports once estimated the Japanese losses as normally four times those of the defenders. July Oct. Dec. .Ian.

The Treasury said the big jump resulted from the recent sale of a new bond issue and raised the debt to §62,252,495,250 February 25. Since part of the Treasury's borrowing powers must be reserved because of the automatically increasing value of defense bonds, the treasury now has less than $2,000,000,000 of borrowing authority left.
