The swiftly-strikhig winds 'left behind a trail o£ smashed homes and buildings that sent damage estimates into the millions. A number of the injured wore believed dying. Mississippi Hardest Hit Mississippi's heavily-populated cotton growing belt in the north- central ection bore the brunt of the terrific winds. At least 81 were known dead and some 650 injured in that state alone. A path of death and destruction also was left in the wake- oE tornadoes in Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, Alabama and -Missouri. None was reported killed or injured in Missouri, but the storm did damage as far as the west-central section of that state.

T h eir morale has never been questioned. The move, clearly foreshad- o w e d from the hour the impending fall of Java fractured the U n i ted Nation defense front, is the'first definite step toward countering Japanese aggression with offensive action by land sea and air. Left Wilh Regret It means a beginning has been KIRKE SIMPSON sonal leadership of a battle-tested soldier whose name already has illomened meaning for the war lords of Japan. • It goes without saying that MacArthur left with regret the fortress he has made of Batan peninsula and the gallant comrades he inspired to such doughtv deeds oC defense there. He is first of all a soldier with a soldier's sense of duty, however. From the hour General Wavell, his British predecessor, was reassigned to India, MacArthur must have anticipated both' the Australian request for his assignment, and presidential approval. Fights. Defensively There is another reason to urge MacArthur's selection for his new command and his unquestioning acceptance of its great responsibilities. He has fought a defensive fight in this war, and has become the living symbol of high-hearted and undaunted defiance of fantastic odds. At heart however, he is a soldier's soldier, an apostle of the offensive, not the defensive. He proved that again and again both in France. World w;-.r I and fame in France two decades ago. That instinctive genius for cooi, quick judgment, in battle, that makes him willing to take full responsibility for bold acts, made MacArthur the youngest -- - -- serving under Pershing in France. It brought one of Japan's highest rated field commanders to disgrace, reputedly to death by his own hand, 'on Luzon. It is a factor that challenges grimly any Japanese general who undertakes to match wits with the Lion of Luzon in Australia or elsewhere. There can be no question but that a Mat-Arthur defense of Australia will be attuned to that trait of character. And there, in a terrain as vast and varied as that of the whole United States, there is elbow room for full exercise of his genius for a war of movement in which daring and a swift appraisal of each problem of maneuver can have scope.
