Chairman Connally of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said yesterday increased activity of the American Navy in the Western Pa cific indicated the United States intends to fight an offensive battle there rather than a mere delaying action. Senator Connally said this, to gether with the reorganization of the arms production machinery and the prospect that 21 Latin American nations would join in breaking off diplomatic and economic ties with Axis powers, contributed to an en couraging picture of developments. The Senator told a press confer ence this country could not afford to neglect the Pacific for war in any other part of the world. He said the Navy’s sinking of five Jap anese transports and cargo vessels illustrated the kind of results he and others wanted to see there. “We can’t go off and leave the Pacific theater alone,” he declared. “If we did. the Japs would be in Australia soon. If we neglected the Pacific, the Japanese would be apt to so solidify their points of conquest that it would take a long and dreary war to get them out. It seems to me imperative that we should con tinue naval activity in the Pacific with increased vigor and energy.” If Japan became strongly en trenched in strategic points of the Pacific. Senator Connally said, Rus sia might be discouraged from mov ing against Japan. He made no secret of the fact that American of ficialdom hopes that Russia even tually may be In a position to join actively In the fight against the Nipponese. There has been recognition here, however, of the difficulties Russia would face in lighting a two-front war and Senator Connally, as well as others, have been reported as counseling patience to await further developments of the Soviet counter offensive against the German armies.

At a meeting at the Musolit Club Thursday night, the local associa tion passed a resolution listing three specific ways in which the colored population is supporting the war effort. The statement from New York was issued last week by the Allied Coun cil of National Organizations. The members defeated by a vote of 31 to 4 a resolution stating that it was the sense of the group that "colored people are wholeheartedly and un reservedly all out in support of the present war effort.” Scoring the action of this self-appointed and self-constituted body,” the Washington association pointed to the colored persons' sup port of civilian defense, their pur chase of defense bonds and stamps, and their co-operation in the Sele<*-1 tlve Service organization. "The Washington Bar- Association has from time to time condemned' unfair and discriminatory policies and has insisted upon a complete integration of all elements of the population in all efforts connected with the defense effort, including governmental service,” the resolu tion stated. "The association will continue to do^this and will con tinue to insist upon the elimination of all barriers due to race, creed, color or national origin. Yet at the same time the Washington Bar Association feels it c-annot sit idly by and permit to go unchallenged, such afl impugning of the proven loyalties of some 14,000,000 citi zens.” The resolution was .offered by a committee headed by Thurman L. Dodson. Henry L. Johnson, Jr., association president, presided. Hostesses Secondary In General's Plans To Develop Morale Seeking Tough Fighters, He Rates Good Food Above Actresses lr tin Associated Press. SAN JOSE, Calif, Jan. 17.—Host esses and beautiful actresses as builders of morale in Uncle Sam’s Army took a back seat today to such ordinary things as command attention and good food in the plans of an Army general who wants his fighting men tough. “Armies must be tough if they are to win battles," said Maj. Oen. Rob ert C. Richardson, jr„ commanding the Northern California sector of the Western defense command. So he sent out suggestions to of ficers under his command for the development of morale among their men.

Good Food Excels Radio. Good food—soldiers' "spirits rise when their gastric juices have been stimulated," was declared more im portant than radio programs. Pride, both in one's self and In one's ogani sation, was placed before theaters. Above all, the general said, “re member that our country is at war * and that every day shall be used to a maximum to train the men in their respective tasks and make them <feel that what they are doing Is a great contribution to victory.” He recognized the Importance of the hostesses, the entertainment and other diversions in the life of the soldier, but asserted they were given undue emphasis. Spartan Lives Emphasised. “When the* Army began its ex pansion much Influence, chiefly from civilian sources, was exerted to make the transition of the selectee from civilian life to Army life as painless as possible with in sistence that he be provided with the comforts and entertainments identified with civilian life," be Mid. "The writers were unaware of the fact that armies in order to be ef fective must lead Spartan lives. “Undue emphasis was, therefore, placed on radio programs, recrea tional buildings, hostess houses, hostesses, movie stars and like di versions, as if these amusements were the panacea for good morale or the antidote for poor morale. “External aids may add to good morale, but they cannot of them selves produce it.” Navy Takes Over Five Wildlife Service Boats The Navy announced yesterday it had taken over five small patrol boats from the Pish and Wildlife Service of the Interior Department.
