JAPS QUIT PARTS OF NORTH BURMA CALCUTTA, Dec. 30.—<£>>—'The abandonment of important sectors of northern Burma by the Japanese continued today with mounting evidence that the enemy does not plan to make a major stand north of Mandalay. In the past 48 hours British troops have advanced nine miles east to ward the town of Yeu. some 70 miles northwest of Mandalay, and only suicide Japanese rearguards are contesting the drive, dispatches to headquarters of Allied land forces southeast Asia here said today. The enemy is beginning to de stroy the railroad from Yeu south to Monywa which is prime evidence of an intention to continue the southward retreat. This railway is the backbone of the enemy's sup ply line north and west of Man dalay. Frontline reports emphasize that the Japanese withdrawal is an or derly one. not a rout. Enemy forces are falling back in good order, but nonetheless, the precision of the retreat does not obscure the fact that Japanese military leaders are abandoning northwestern Burma. However, troops moving south in three parallel columns between the Mandalay railroad and the Irra waddy river reported that one fairly large enemy force is offer ing opposition east of Kanbalu. Kanbalu, on the Myitkyina-Man dalay railway about 95 miles from Mandalay, recently was occupied by British 4th Corps troops. JUNIOR COLLEGE PROPOSED HERE A proposal that The~ school and war housing property at Lake For est be converted into a Junior col lege after the war has been made lo the City Planning board and ather agencies by Claude T. Gore, 115 South Fifth St., it was an nounced yesterday. From authoritative sources it was learned that the New Hanover Board of Education for several years had discussed the idea of establishing such an institution here. There was some likelihood, the authority said, that the board had planned the Lake Forest school building with the view of its use after the emergency to be aad by Junior college students. The suggestion projected by 3ore explained that the war housi ng units could be used as dormi tories, and that ample land on the :ront would provide for expansion und athletic activities. “This would be a great saving o Wilmingtonians,’ he explained, ‘as their children could go to school and live at home. It would je good to have classes at night ‘or the benefit of working girls md boys.’’ The Lake Forest housing proj ;ct, situated around Greenfield Lake in three parts of which two contain permanent houses, con tains about 1.057 stone and de lIlUUI!

Copies of the following proposal by Gore were submitted to School Supt. H. M. Roland, City Manager A. C. Nichols, Addison Hewlett, chairman of board of county com missioners, and the Star-News: "There has been many sugges tions made concerning Post-War Planning for Wilmington, N. C., and I would like to make a sug gestion for the improvement of Wilmington after the war. “I would like to suggest that we endeavor to locate a Junior col lege here. This could be done by the government turning over the Lake Forest property, or part of this property, to the City of Wil mington. It might be called Lake Forest Junior College. There are quite a number of houses on ihis property that could be used as sleeping quarters, etc., and there is a large school building with a gymnasium. Probably some new buildings would have to be built. There is ample land to expand adjacent to Lake Forest. The lake at Greenfield would be good for swimming and boating for the col lege students. The government is considering military training for youths after the war and there i? sufficient land for a drill field, firing range. 18 hole golf course. The Legion Field could be used for baseball ar\d football games. The Wilmington boys and girls could stay at home for their two years of preparatory and later en ter college to complete their full college course if desired. This would be a great saving to Wil mingtonians, as their children could go to school and live at home. It would be good to have | classes at night ior tne oenent oi | working girls and boys.
