British Army In Burma Seeks Consolidation With Chinese f*&. _ ...... .-.._. - - - ._....-_. ; _ Current Lull In Fight Reported LONDON, March 12. C/PJ — A comparatively small British army in Burma sped efforts today to consolidate with Chinese forces a 'barrier to Japanese invasion of India via central and northern Burma. A current lull in fighting is expected to be followed soon by clashes with the invacers in central Burma, whither the British took up positions after retiring from the Irrawaddy river delta. A military commentator said the British forces were "in the main intact, though they must have suffered lieas-y casualties." Indians Wiped Out From Chungking it was reported that the Japanese were digging in north of Pegu, constructing a network of trenches as if to try, for the present at least, to consolidate their newly-won territory to the south and to prepare for strong Allied counter-attacks from the north. As for the Allies, Lieut. Gen. Joseph W. Stilwell, new American chief of staff in the China area, under Generalissimo Chiang Kai- Shek, was en route to Burma to inspect the front, after having spent a week in Chungking conferring with Gen. Chiang. (The German radio quoted Japanese reports from the Burma front saying Japanese advance guards had fought a "heavy battle" north of Letpadan, 125 miles north and csst of Rangoon--half way to Prome. An Allied detachment consisting principally of Indians either was wiped out or forced to surrender, it was said.) As An Expert Sees It-— Behind War ~Ne<ws By KIRKE L. SIMPSON Wide World War Aaaly*1 Lungir.g Russian stabs at Nazi defense lines north of the Smo- lensk area represent another race against time — the time when spring thaws inevitably immobilize both armies on most of the front. Mud and overflowing streams make a vast quagmire of the Russian Steppes for weeks as the w in t e r breaks up. They impose greater obstacles to major military operations than did the terrible Russian winter. The record books are full of Russian weather indicating not before KIRKE SIMPSON Plant May Become War-Wound Healer I AUSTIN, March 12. (U.PJ—Cas- tilian malva, a small leafy plant that grows in Texas, California, Mexico and British Columbia, is being tested here for use as a war-wound healer. '.' Dr. Carl Albers, professor of •pharmacy at the University of Texas, is making research under a national laboratory grant to determine the best ways of growing, harvesting and curing the herb to ;get its best medicinal values. ; The plant long has been used as a domestic healing remedy in -Mexico to cure sores, ulcers and 'gangrenous infections. First discovered to be a wound-healer by -Indian tribes of Mexico, it was brought to the attention of San Antonio physicians by a Mexico City doctor. ,;• "The use of malva may revolutionize the treatment of wounded in this war," Dr. Albers said. He quoted one doctor who called it ^"liquid gold" for a field hospital. Jit Was All A Mistake 'But Man Gets Tires ; LOS ANGELES, March 12. f/P) - -Tom Willis, jr., an aircraft work, ;er, got three retreaded tires and his picture in the paper showing .him fondly kissing them. '<• Then R. B. Parks, Office of •Price Administration field representative, arrived, and declared rit was all a mistake. '• "Purely a slip-up by a local tin ;rationing board," said Parks. "Ab .solutely no quotas for retreade< j or recapped tires have been es •'tablished for passenger cars fo :._March." - Willis may keep the tires, how ;'ever. Parks added, and charge i ;"to profit through another's error data that late A P r il or May at the earliest can a major German offensive be renewed. Nazi attack technique relies upon heavy mechanization. Advantages Change Snow and cold that bogged down ank warfare, as well as amazing Russian resilience and inexhaus- able Russian man power saved eningrad, Moscow arid vital Cau- asus oil resources from the in- ader. But the weather did not qually immobilize Rpri armies nured" to Russian winters. Once winter stalled the Nazi ank attack, the advantage in mobility passed to Russian horse and oot troops, giving their numeri- al superiority full effect. " Nor vill it pass back to their Nazi oes until the ground hardens suf- iciently for renewal of mechan- zed warfare. Over the wide and confused ront 'from below the Smolensk sivot to the Leningrad area where he Russians are striking their most effective blows it seems un- ikely that the Nazi high command can count upon favorable ground and weathe? conditions tefore June. Try To Hold Positions Hitler's forces are trying to cling to their present positions, but new break-throughs at various points are reported from Moscow and London, unofficially. There are also indications that with the Leningrad siege line cracked, the garrison of that city has been strongly reinforced and has joined in a Russian offensive both along the coast of the Gulf of Finland and southwestward down the Len- ingrad-Pskov rail and road system. Official reports from Russia do little to help map the battle front accurately. Their general tenor clearly indicates, however, that the Red high command expects smashing victories which could disrupt Hitler's spring offensive program. WHO KNOWS?
