SIMPSON Wide World War Analyst Another step in United Nation ireparations to strike a crushing blow eventually at Japan's vital communications lines in the China sea has been taken, this time in China. An American Army officer. Lieut. Gen. Joseph W. Stilwell, in China as President Roosevelt's personal r e p r e sentative, has been named chief of staff under Gen. Chiang Kai-Shek, for operations on the iiiiiianiuiiMr m Chinese front. KIRKE SIMPSON And }t is in the , great eastern oulge oE China, south of Shanghai, hat some of Japan's most important land bases lie. These protect the Nipponese sea raffic which sustains the enormously extended threats to Aus- ralia and to India. May Be Plane Base The possibility that swarms of American planes may be based in China-within close striking range of Japan's Formosa stronghold nd of the teeming China sea war raffic is an alluring one Bracketed with widening Amerian naval sorties into the island- tudded "hornets' nest" of enemy ases in the North Pacific far west r Hawaii, the pattern of a future mo-American pincer squeeze on apans China sea conquest life me is obvious. A Japanese report says that Truk island, southeast of lost -.-._ and 3,000 miles west of Hawaii, was the objective of such n American sortie. That is un- onfirmed from any American puree as is the Tokyo claim of a Jnited States plane carrier sunk nd a destroyer fired Subject To Suspicion Truk is another of the many stationary plane carriers" Japan cvelopcd in preparation 1'or her v anton attack on this country '?. less than 2,000 miles due east the Pacific shore of Mindanao n the southern Philippines American naval forces which may be operating in that area of he lower North Pacific are roush- y two-thirds of the way from -[await to the Philippines. The apanese report indicates a task orce similar to that which wrought havoc with an enemy air rnnomg fleet west of the Gilbert lands. Like the Tokyo report of 3 frustrated bombing attack on Marcus island, 1,000 miles north of Truk m the Bonin group, the Nipponese account of the Truk episode is subject to suspicion. Both mirjht be designed to draw out information as to American fleet dispositions. Even so, there, seems every reason to believe that a progressive American advance westward in the Pacific is feeling its way island »y island toward one or the other China sea jugular veins of Japanese war traffic. The primary purpose still may be the necessity of. safeguarding American com- aced Employes Are Denied FDR's Request •" Is Voted Down WASHINGTON, March 1C.
