In Galveston, Seize , Press) WASHINGTON, Feb. 27.— If wishful thinking won wars, the Japanese \vou!d be far along today on the road to final victory. A large section of the west coast would be a shambles, the Pacific fleet would be little more than a memory and the native peoples everywhere in the western Pacific would be welcoming the Nipponese invaders with garlands of flowers instead of bullets and bombs. That, at least, is the broad outline of the radio propaganda picture which Tokyo has been painting since the beginning of the war —presumably for a public it hopes it has in the United States and other United Nations. The serious purpose of the broadcast claims, officials said today, is to create questioning, uncertainty, lack of confidence and suspicion in this country. While they may al*o be put out for the benefit of Japanese morale and the morale of Japan's Axis partners it is not definitely known that all the reports are given to the Japanese people. They are judged here, therefore, on the theory that they are designed primarily to upset Allied and particularly American morale. In the light of what has actually occurred as compared with what the Japanese reported, officials here have been amused by some of the extravagant claims. une broadcast purported to deal with the historical background of Wake, the island outpost which . Japan later captured. Tokyo charged that when American marines fi'rst occupied the island, they killed off. all the natives. Actually, until the marines arrived with their own supply of fresh water, the island never supported, human life for any prolonged period. Then there was the matter of the "great west coast t>anic" after the war's outbreak. The Japs claimed the panic extended all the way from Mex- ico to the Canadian border. On another occasion soon after war began they reported that .-ban Francisco, which actually bad been blacked out Motley Fat Stock ^ Show Scheduled For Saturday, April 4 'Special To The Avalanche) MATADOR, Feb. 27, — Motlev county 4-H club boys will receive defense stamps for the 3rd annual Fat Stock show prizes, instead of cash according to.plans made here Saturday by the Land Use Planning committee of 4-H club work. Date for the show has been set for Saturday, April 4. In event of unfavorable weather, the show will be held the following Saturday, April 11. Date for-the show was selected to enable boys to enter their calves and pigs in the Plainview South Plains show to be held April 16-17. Competition will be stronger at Plainview this season with 20 counties participating. Bonds, Stamps For Prizes Motley county 4-H boys voted to ask that they be given defense bonds ;.nd stamps instead of money prizes, according to county a°ent, J. R. Emmons. The following 4-H show officers were elected Saturday: C C Jones, president; J. C. Burleson vice-president; Elbert Reeves, secretary. Executive Committee is C fC f Jones, Flomot; Charles Long- Roaring Springs; W. I. Rushing, Matador; M. J. Reilly, Matador; J. C. Burleson, Matador; Casey Jones, Flomot; F. C.

The first damage resulting from enemy action on the west coast mainland occurred only this week in California when a bombardment by a submarine with 5-inch guns caused a tola! property loss of $500. Announcing this action, the Japanese said thai the city of Santa Barbara had b*en devastated. Other claims included the report, put out through roundabout A:ds channels/ that Admiral Thomas C. Hart, chief of the Asiatic fleet, had been killed in action early in February. Secretary Knox disclosed Wednesday that Har't officially described as in ill health, is now on his way to Washington. The aircraft carrier Lexington has become a sort of ghost ship for the Japanese. They have "sunk" her several times. Shortly after the last such report, an aircraft carrier which the Kavy did not identify participated in the now-famous raid on the Gilbert and Marshall islands. Japan's com- munique announcing the sinking of a certain aircraft carrier was posted .on the raiding carrier's bulletin board. The officers and mer. were reported to have considered it a fine joke. In their reports on the effect of their raid on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese, according to records kept here, consistently contradicted themselves/ going from one extreme to the other.

Men Who Shoot War Pictures At Front Are A Reckless Lot By FRANK HEWLETT United Piess Staff Writer WITH GENERAL MACARTHUR'S ARMY IN THE PHILIPPINES, Feb. 26. — (Delayed) — The men who "shoot" this war for the Army signal corps are a reckless lot and poor insurance risks. They showed that today when I made a tour with Staff Sergeant Avon Sherman of Bucksport, Me., and his assistant, Morris Gartner of Stockton, Calif., signal corps photographers. We saw Japanese in a skirmish. We slipped up close enough to them to see them at rest. We ran right into the middle of another skirmish where mortars, machine guns, . rifles and hand grenades were firing on mountain trails and were uncomfortably close when, bombs were dropped from enemy planes. But when we returned to safety they both-said.the day had been •uneventful and hoped I'd have better luck, .the next trip. Recording this fight on Bataan peninsula, where a man's good fortune is judged 'by the roominess of his fox hole, is . probably more dangerous When you're shooting with a speed camera than with a rifle. ~--i.>y-*s Sherman, who was working" ' for the Idaho Power compahy at Boise v.-hcn he entered the Army, has three medals, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Silver Star and the Purple Heart to attest his bravery. He won the citations because he abandoned his camera to fire a machine gun during a withdrawal. Green Filipino troops were stymied by the'jammed gun. when Sherman took over. He adjusted the gun and although wounded in the arm continued to man the gun until the attack was repulsed. ' • Gartner hasn't had so many experiences because he formerly was kept busy in the darkroom. He rebelled at such security, however, arid finally, was sent into the field. The photographers technically are non-combatants, but Sherman goes armed and • in his . spare time joins patrols on reconnaissance trips behind the enemy lines." It is a dangerous business, record. ing the movements of battle, • but only one photographer has been lost and- his superiors feel that he probably has joined the guerillas in. northern Luzon. • Making the'camera record—' .and it's a good one—is a most : difficult. job.
