W. Bohls, director of state laboratories in Austin, has been postponed "two or three weeks" because of his illness, city officials were informed by long distance telephone Wednesday afternoon. Mayor Carl E. Slaton had previously been informed that Dr. Bohls would arrive in Lubbock today on an official inspection trip. The specific purpose of the visit, the mayor was advised, will be to inspect the city laboratories which have been enlarged considerably during recent weeks. Tentatively planned while he is here is a small dinner at which Dr. Bohls will be honor guest. Attending -will be employes of the city health department, members of the city commission, representatives of the chamber of commerce and a few guests. Gerald Jarvis, city bacteriologist, and Mrs. Margie Scott, assistant, are in charge of these arrangements.

Mailc Halsey Drug Store Sharp blows struck at the Japa-' nese by American forces in the Pacific theater, ashore and afloat, do little immediately to relieve the gather ing gloom as to Java's fate; but they definitely serve notice on Tokyo of -what the future holds. The operations were offensive in "stvire. They further whittled at enemy resources in shipping and air power already heavily strained to maintain a vast bat- KIRKE SIMPSON He front. On Luzon Gen. Douglas MacArthur's pint-size air force lashed out of its Bataan refuge to send enemy cargo craft to the bottom in Subic bay. Somewhere "west of the Gilberts" a naval task force blasted 16 of 18 attacking Japanese bombers from the sky. The loss of two naval fighter planes and one pilot were the^ only American casualties. A Minor Incident The achievement of MacArthur's few planes furnished a thrilling counter-part for the gallant stand of his American-Filipino troops on Bataan. Aside from the fact that it knocked out more enemy surface ships, however, it is only a minor incident of the struggle. The sea action has other significance. "West of the Gilberts" covers a vast sweep of sea. To the northwest lie the stepping-stone islands of Japan's mandate outposts, the "stationary plane carrier;" ground v/hieh her offensive strategy is built. The planes brought down by American naval guns and air fighters probably came from there. This ocean area is deeper in enemy country than the Marshall and Gilbert island bases so recently blasted by American sea and air attack. Appearance of an American naval task force in that region means carrying the fi^h to the foe. Further Westward There is no word as to its mission. Presumably it was to knock out other Japanese island base which menace Pacific supply lines. With the Java defense in dire straits, the security of those routes is increasingly vital if the United Nations front is compelled to fall back on Australia. That also was the purpose o the American attacks in the Mar shall and Gilbert groups. The pro tective counter-attack has now been pushed a further stride westward. And with the destruction of 16 of 18 enemy bombers at leas one more Japanese Pacific outpost base, that from which they came, has been nullified. Word of naval bombardment of hat or other island bases to destroy air installations and fuel stores is to be anticipated. The action at sea cleared the way for that. rv.?
