Handpicked and specially trained as fighter-workers, they are the nation's newest armed service, a combat-and-constructibn force created by the Navy to build advance posts outside continental United States against the day when American arms start driving forward in the far-flung theaters of .war. Name From Initials The name for the new service is phonetically derived fom the initials "C. B."—construction battalion. ; From the Aleutians to Australia, frbjEri Iceland to the Red sea, from the Caribbean to India the Seabees ~ \yill lay the stepping stones essential to ultimate victory over the Axis. Primarily their job will be to build—everything from docks and dock facilities to air fields, runways, hangars, oil tanks, struc-l tures: "of all kinds and artillery j . emplacements and mounts. But the! Seabees must be as handy with a 1 "fomrriy gun as with a carpenter's hammer.

However, there seems justification for the view that the town itself was of small KIRKE SIMPSON value to the defense of the Irra- waddy oil fields more than 100 miles farther north. Just southeast of Prome within less than ten miles is a 500-foot hill upthrust from the level valley floor. It lies east of the river and west of the Prome-Tharrawaddy railroad. New Delhi reports indicate it was Japanese capture of this height w)iich forced the British withdrawal from Prome. Immediately northwest of the town, however, .a 900-foot jungle- clad peak jets up. If that still is in British hands, Prome can be but a no-man's land, untenable by either side, and with the advantage of higher ground with the British.

CENTER, April 3. — (Special) — Premiums contributed by business men will be presented winners in the fourth annual junior fat stock show scheduled here Saturday. Officials of the event expressed the belief that a number of the entries, -prize winning and runners-up. would be shown. at the Lubbock and riainView shows. ; north of Prome. A sharp buttress spur of the Arakan -Yoma moun- ains to the west comes down virtually to the bank of the Irra- vyaddy at that point. It rises to nearly 1,400 feet midway between !he river and the main Arakan ridga whbh shov/s 5,000-foot level passes in that sector but no roads. That spur forms a powerful barrier to a Japanese advancn up the west side of the valley beyond Prome. It seems unquestionable that it figures importantly in British defense strategy. Heavy jungle growths cover it to offer effective shelter to troops from air attack. East of the Irrawaddy and north of Prome, there is a 500-foot peak dominating the road to Mandalay which swings eastward from the river. Between the Irrawaddy and Sit- tang rivers rises the Pegu Yoma range, far less rugged than the Arakan .Yomas but still studded with sharp peaks that would afford the defenders successive gun positions overlooking all approaches from the south. Must Be Considered On the map, that waistline is strongly indicated as the pre-determined ground for a major British stand to hold the Irrawaddj gateway. Events eastward beyond the Pegu Yomas on the Chinese- held left flank .in the Sittang valley, however, must be considerec in weighing British chances o halting th^ Irrawaddy drive unti the. monsoon breaks late this month or in May. Loss of Toungoo, the eastern anchor of the Anglo-Chinusc defensf front, and the evacuation o_ Prome appears to have 't-upturec road contact between the two wings of the front. It may compc deeper Chinese withdrawals and expose the east flank of the British Prome waistline front, compelling a further retirement.

(jP> — Jackie Coogari, "the kid" of silent films who grew'up to be a soldier, announced his separation today from his wife of less than a year, the former Flower Parry, a nonprofessional. His disclosure came a month to the day from the birth of thej son, .Jqhn Anthony Coogan of their n. jr st month of the "war, during which period the Langley was not damaged. She was sunk after a prolonged . attack by the enemy south of Java in late February.

War conditions in the Southwest Pacific have greatly complicated and delayed reports of casualties, and the public is urged to refrain from initiating individual inquiries regarding casualties. The next of kin of all casualties are always. notified by telegram as soon as possible. "7. There is nothing to' report from othar areas." The Langley, displacing 11,050 tons, was formerly the fleet collier Jupiter. Launched in 1912, she served as a collier until March, 1920, when she was_ taken out of commission to "be converted -into an aircraft carrier. In 1937 she war further modified aria r.eclass- ed as an aircraft tender.!'The Pecos, a 5,400-ton^.craft, was launched in 1921. She%vas 475 feet overall, 56 feet in 'Hhe beam, and was armed with four five-inch and two three-inch guns. She could carry 7,850 tons of oil, exclusive of her own fuel.

Speaking in a scries of talks'on i'Gpd Speakb- to Us," Bishop Holt concluded the week's noon-day services with that message. A gift offering of $56 was presented the speaker. Dr. .'/. M. Lewis, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, presided. Using as his scriptural-text the New Testament sto/y of the -crucifixion, Bishop Haft said the Good Friday services/in both Roman and Greek Caljroh'c churches and also many ^.Protestant churches,, were in • observance of. the three lours Christ hung upon the cross. "With so many voices to be leard, He still speaks to Us," he said. "God has many ways of speaking. Many people do hear His voice, but there are many who walk through His gardens and wholye'i do not hear His voice." On Gooff Friday, iie added "God can reach us a little more clearly today," than on other days of the year. Following the establishment of the Christian church, he explained,that group remained united for a thousand years, -until, there ,came a split, between the eastern and western branches and the Greek and'' Roman Catholic churches ^y/ere formed. Some 400 years ago the Protestant denominations broke away. Since then rriany. denominations have divided and sub-divi'led, until there, is great confusion. f . " But in; spite; of this confusion, he pointed out, men find God in many and varied types of religi- i ous experiences and services.
