Keyes If you've held a reserve com- j mission in the Army which has expired since 1931, you're going to get a letter from the War department in the noxt few days calling you back to active service. That was an announcement made 'o members of the Lubbock Reserve Officers association by Col. E. A.

All former reserve officers in the infantry, field artillery and cavalry are to be called to active duty in the War department's new campaign for officers of the Army, Col. Keyes said. "If you can pass the physical examination, you're in the Army," he told his listeners. Final Meeting Held The orctor affects approximately 800 former reserve officers in the Eighth Corps areb, Col. Keyes said. The order is "practically calling every one who has had a commission who is able to serve in the armed forces today," Col. Keyes said. Former reserve officers may make application lor any branch of the service they desire to enter and retain their former commissions. Col. Keyes said. Blanks may be obtained from Army recruiting officers. He said all men would be . allowed approximately two weeks before being called to-duty after their physical examinations.

As. An Expert Sees It Behind War News By KIRKE L. SIMPSON Wid« World War Analyii Although isolated Dutch andi Allied garrisons on Java may prolong the fight indefinitely, that battle also seems certainly lost and already written oil the strategy books. The cost of this fresh disaster to the United Nations either in men and ships or in strategic footholds in the far Pacific from which eventually to strike back at the invaders is yet to be counted. There can be no doubt, however, that the Nipponese c a m- KIRKE SIMPSON paign of conquest has reached a supremely critical point for Tokyo as well as for United Nation leadership. Once the Java corner is turned, Japanese strategists must quickly reveal their larger war design. They dare not halt to. consolidate ground already won. They must march on. That is the fate of aggressors. They cannot stop. Hitler Is- Example That necessity drove Hitler, even with all the rest of the continent of Europe in his grip, to attack Russia. It may be driving him to widening the w^r front in Europe in a desperate spring ef- Lubbock •'. Brinkley To Face Mail Fraud Charges LITTLE ROCK, Ark., March 5. (/Pi —U. S. District Attorney Sam Rorex said today Dr. John R. Brinkley, gland specialist of Del Rio, Tex., probably would be brought to trial here about June 1 on an old indictment charging mail fraud in connection with his sex-rejuvenation advertisements. With his wife and six other persons,' Dr. Brinkley was indicted last September on the ground his mailed literature "falsely pretended" that he "had" found a real substance which when properly administered would restore to normal sexual vigor sexually weak men and women. It also was charg- ed'that the teratment was represented as causing "men and women to live to be 100 years old." At the time, Dr. Brinkley was in a hospital at Kansas City bed- dirren from a leg amputation Since, however, he has regained his. health on a Texas ranch, Rorex said. The district attorney made the announcement after A. C. Petermeyer, one of those indicted with Brinkley, pleaded guilty and wa given a year-and-a-day sentence in the federal correctional institution at Texarkana, Tex. The sen tence will run concurrently with one being served on a perjury charge. ' The perjury accusation grew out of Peterrneyer's testi mony in damage suits against thi gland specialist. Petermeyer once was employei at Brinkley's sumptuous Country Club hospital here, which \va closed in the wake of the damag suits and a voluntary bankruptc; petition filed by Brinkley at Sa: Antonio. ht> Dutch Indie«, Thailand, Trench Indo-China. A substantial part of Japanese army, air and iaval power must always be retained, also on guard against a potential Russian enemy only 60 mile.* from Tokyo. Nor can Tokyo warmakers overlook the fact that the greatest danger to the empire they are seeking to build is from the east, 'rom the United States and the Pacific, not from the west. It is the eastern sea flank of their grand- ose conception that must be increasingly menaced as American striking power afloat, ashore and in the air .grows hour by hour. Realizsd By Japanese There have been recent obvious indications that the Japanese realize this. Efforts to bolster Japanese' guardposts in the southern Philippines against American use of the southern approaches to the China sea from the Pacific reflect that. A Japanese report, otherwise unconfirmed, of 'A heavy bombing attack on Marcus island in the Bonin group by unidentified planes further indicates Japanese sensitiveness about the sea flanks in the Pacific. If there was such an attack on Marcus island, in the Mid North Pacific, it could only have been by American , planes,, although where they ceme from is a mystery.

With Java virtually lost to the Allies, however, Tokyo musl choose, has already chosen no doubt, its next objective. The Alternatives are limited, the expansion of front and extension of communication lines great whichever ourse is followed. '. To many observers, India and he complete isolation of China for ventual strangulation seems al- eady indicated in the Burma ampaign. Many Australians be- iever, however, that the next 'apanese invasion thrust may be limed at their country. Limit To Power One thing must be clear to any observer. Simultaneous Japanese campaigns of major proportions at such great and increasing dis- :ances from Japan and from each other seem beyond possibility. There is a limit somewhere to Japanese manpower, shipping and other war resources. Nipponese troops are already spread thin in hina, the Philippines, Malaya, to smoke out some intimations of where American forces actually are disposed. If it proves true that American planes have struck so far north and west, another long step toward American flanking attack on Japan's China sea communications lines has been taken.
