*KS581W 16135 Japs Must Be Cleared Out of Guadalcanal, Marine Officer Says Their Patrols Are Active, Gen. Mitchell Asserts; Sea Attack Expected By CLAUDE A. MAHONEY. Giving additional details on the aviation defenses of Guadal canal, Maj. Gen. Ralph J. Mitch-1 ell, director of Marine Corps aviation, today told a press con ference that Henderson Airfield really is five separate landing strips, with a sixth going in. Now and then it is advantageous to move from one strip to another, he added, as when "Millimeter Pete,” the Japanese artillery in the hills, concentrates on one. The strips are built almost due east and west to take advantage of prevailing winds. The strips are on a grassy plain near the shore, and there is ample room for expansion, Gen. Mitchell said. It is little more than a mat ter of skinning the grass from the surface. As for the use of the field in the rainy season, which is soon to come, he said he was not sure how soft the runways would get. Must Be Driven Out. Asked if it would be necessary to drive the Japs completely from Guadalcanal before extending op erations to another theater, Gen. Mitchell said he believed it "most advisable.” Communiques of the last few days, including one today, spoke of American patrols that are searching the Jungles and hills for the small bands of Japs that fled the clearings when the marines came to the island in August. Find ing them is difficult, for they are sometimes hidden in jungles "so thick you can't see through. "Occasionally it is necessary to bomb holes in the dense growths. Discussing further the existence of the small units of Japs, he said they could probably continue for a considerable time without additional food being brought in. “The Japs don't require much food," he said. “There is some na tive food grown and they probably can get along on that for a time. I don’t think the ones there now are w:ell fed. The thing that might count is the military supplies, for they must have ammunition. I am inclined to believe some is slipping in at night in small boat landings." Damage to Field Slight. The Japanese air forays were termed "pest raids" by Gen. Mit chell. He said they came over in V formations described as “loose fly ing.” Since there are few buildings, the field is the main target and the damage generally is slight. Besides, when Gen. Mitchell left the island on October 23 the score of planes shot down was 310 Japanese to 62 American. The ratio has remained about the same since that time. The bombers come from Rabaul. a 1,200-mile round trip, and pick up the fighters at Buka Island, an 800 mile round trip for them. The bombers are twin-motored and the only four-engined Japanese ship seen there was a seaplane. Agreeing with Secretary Knox, Ma.f. Gen. Mitchell said he believed the Japs would make further at tempts to retake the Island. “I anticipate a fourth round,” he *aid. Walter D. Secrist, 42, Sportst Promoter, Dies PHILADELPHIA.

Rubber 'Continued From First Paget | thetic rubber in the fall of 1943 will, to all practical purposes, be down to the absolutely dangerous deadline of 120.000 tons, and by the end of 1943 will have been built up to only 175,000 tons." For that reason, he said: "It is clear that there is every necessity for continuing through the critical j fall of 1943 a policy of rigid conser vation of rubber." Mr. Jeffers said the public still did not seem to fully understand the rubber situation, adding: "They do not understand the vital Importance of making their present tires last, nor do they comprehend the sacrifices in convenience driv ing and pleasure driving which must be made, if each man’s car is to continue at his own disposal for the essential driving our whole war economy demands. “In much of the newly rationed area, they do not fully understand that gas rationing is undertaken 6olely to conserve rubber. "•In many sections they <resent gas rationing and will continue to resent it and oppose it. until they have been made to see that less gas means les* driving: that less driving means the preservation of their own tires for their own use against that period sometime in 1944 when further sup plies of rubber should become avail able for civilian tires. '*Only when this rubber is avail able can rationing be relaxed " Mr. Jeffers said a large part of the public "had been led to believe that certain regulations for the con trol of tire supply insure that on December 1 tires of one or another kind tor recaps' will become avail able to all who need them." It was evident that the reference was to December 1, 1942, for the report, although not released until today, was dated November 30. A scientist urged the committee to put a check on the creation of czars of Government programs. Testifying on the Kilgore bill to establish an office of technological mobilization. Col.

"Yes. we are. and this office would j require an over-ail czar of all czars," Col. Dewey replied. - • NEW YORK.—RELEASED FROM INTERNMENT IN AFRICA—These five British merchant seamen were interned by the French in North Africa and released by the British-American forces when they took over.

Dec. 4.—If the invasion forces of the United States had waited two weeks longer, to make their North African attack in November, they never would have met with the success they did. Lt. Joseph F. Brooks of Orlando said today on his return here from Casablanca. Lt. Brooks was an engineering of ficer aboard the Hugh L. Scott, a Navy troop transport, which was torpedoed November 12. "The Hugh L. Scott, formerly the President Pierce of the Dollar Steamship Lines, arrived along with other transports at Fedala Bay, near Casablanca. French Morocco, 4 o'clock Sunday morning. November 8,” he said. Heavy Gunfire Encountered. "We were immediately met with heavy gunfire from shore batteries and pill boxes, and we started re turning the fire from our heavily armed transports. "It took our battleship 36 hours to put the French battleship Jean Bart out of action. The French ship, although the machinery was out of her, threw everything she had at us.” Lt. Brooks said the shore was so well fortified that in another two weeks the outcome of the battle might have been different. He dis closed that Marshal Rommel had been in Casablanca only two days before the arrival of the transports. “We had all our troops and equip ment ashore when we were torpe doed twice and sank rapidly,” he said. “I got off with only my under wear in Fedala Bay. near Casa blanca. We were rescued and placed in a Catholic church. Moved to Stable. “When it got too crowded we had to stay in a stable. Casablanca it self was nothing but holes in the ground, and in the bay at least 30 enemy ships had been sunk. “Our soldiers, sailors and marines put up a battle that was the greatest I ever hope to see. There was not a yellow man in any outfit, and they kept, plunging ahead. After we were torpedoed and burning there was no panic. Messerschmidtts strafed us all day and night. I don't know where they came from. But, brother, I know where they went. Our forces shot them down." Lt. Brooks has been an engineering officer in the merchant marine for 23 years.

The dis pute primarily was over wage in creases demanded by the State, County and Municipal Workers of America iCIO>. The strike was called off when the War Labor Board announced it would assume jurisdiction in the case after the men returned to the jobs. Mr Byrne has challenged the WLB’s jurisdiction and announced he would appeal to President Roosevelt. A WLB panel, which conducted closed hearings, has recommended re-instatement of the discharged and suspended employes and the full board has scheduled a hearing for December 9 in Washington to act on the recommendations. “Public employes have their rights as do other citizens,” the Civil Service Commission ruled, "but in the very nature of their employment they must forego some of the prac tices which private employes may exercise while they remain as public employes, in return for tenure and other protective features.” Strike of Drivers Halts 8 New England Bus Routes Bv 'he Associated Press.

NEW YORK, Dec. 4.—Admiral Harold R. Stark today challenged American industry and workers to match the unflagging zeal and devotion of the men in the armed services. The commander of the United States naval forces ir. the European theater said in a message from overseas to the National Association of Manufacturers’ Convention: • We have hit harder than we ha\e been hit. We look to the day when our material strength will be so great that we can choose our time and place, impose our will, and force the earliest possible decision.'1 Every One Asked to Help. The message, read to the conven tion by NAM President W. P. Witherow, asked: ‘‘If all of you. whether in manage ment or labor, live with the same sense of urgency as the man on thp firing line, would it not be passible to increase our output of weapons and the ships to carry them 10, 15 -or even 25 per cent? "Think what that would mean. The hour of maximum pressure on i the enemy in all theaters would be just that much advanced. 1 “If the man on the fighting front is knocking out the other fellow harder than he is being knocked and if the worker on the home front is sending implement of destruction to the vital points of contact faster than can the enemy, there is an accelerated victory in the making. “Every man must do his utmost. Out-producing your opposite num ber in Germany and Japan is just as much a nail in his coffin as a bayonet in his belly.” The message, which was broad cast, declared: “In 48 hours our country will enter j the second year of its fight for free men in a free world. When that ; fight began our commander in chief, I the President, made it clear that our first victory must be in the bat tle of production. Our Strategy Explained. “We had been forced to begin i * two-ocean war with a one-ocean navy. Prom a material standpoint, j the Jap in the Pacific was stronger than we were here. \ "We therefore initially had to i maneuver so that we might take more toll than we suffered. In that way in time we could overcome the odds against us. In that wav we could prepare for the day for when we can take an all-out offensive. "There is an additional way to hasten that all-out offensive. That way is to replace losses and to build up faster than can the enemy. Other things being equal produc tion can decide the issue. “Other things being in our favor, production can speed the victory and save the whole human race months or even years of anguish.” Tomadelli _i Continued From First Page.l I will fix the term at from one to five years for the whole offense." Tomadelli, a propagandist for the Italian government in Argentina during the World War. was arrested here in January, 1941. in his fash ionable apartment, where he grew ; orchids as a hobby. At his recent trial the complain ing witness said Tomadelli repre sented that he had the backing of prominent figures in the Govern ment in the development of an “electronics” bulb he claimed to have Invented. The bulb required no wiring, it was said. Defense Attorneys Martino and William E. Gallagher indicated they may appeal the case. Threat to War Output Ended as Michigan Strike Is Averted U. S. and State Mediators Settle Pay Dispute of Power Firm Employes * B? the Associated Pres.« SAGINAW. Mich.. Dec. 4. — A strike of employes of the Consumers Power Co. which threatened to cripple war production in much of lower Michigan has been averted, it was announced shortly after noon by representatives of the Federal and State Labor Mediation Services. Frederick H. Bullen, War Labor Board mediator, and Noel P. Fox. member of the State Mediation Labor Board, said in a statement that the disagreement on major Issues of the dispute that caused a break down of negotiations "have been resolved and settled," and that "therefore any obstacle to the com pletion of the contract negotiations has been removed.” The threatened strike, which had been called for midnight tonight, besides upsetting war production activities in many industrial centers of the lower peninsula would have disrupted civilian life over much of the area dependent for light and fuel on the company. The call for the strike was issued last Sunday by the Michigan Joint Utility Workers Council (CIO> to enforce demands for wage conces sions and a union shop contract. As outlined in the strike call the work stoppage would have affected 19 Michigan cities, outside Detroit. The mediators said the union had called a meeting of the Utility Work ers Organizing Committee to be held in Lansing December 6. to sub mit the negotiated contract for rati fication. Earlier today Herman R. Chad wick. president of the UWOC. said that an agreement had been reached tentatively on the union shop issue, one of the points in dispute. On a second point, wage increases, Mr. Chadwick said, the company was being asked to make October 1 the retroactive date. Bomber Seen to Crash Into Gulf of Mexico By rh# Associated Press. VENICE.

"Much more than essential gas is being used.” Mr. Davies told the New England group that the fuel oil situation in that section had improved mate rially within the last twn weeks, the inventory now being 99 per cent of , supplies there a year ago as com pared to 76 per cent two weeks ago. "In comparison with other sec tions. New England has very much the best position," he said. "In no other area is the inventory as good or nearly as good. In some areas it is only one-half.

We can't guarantee anything” Dependent on Army Needs. Mr. Davies said maintenance of the 75 per cent fuel oil goal was dependent on two contingencies— gasoline consumption and the “un certainty of military demands.'’ He said military demands had never been less than anticipated but even with the great military re quirements of the past few weeks there had been nothing yet to in dicate abandonment of the 75 per cent figure.

NEW YORK, Dec. 4—Post-war continuance of the United Nations to act as a world governmental unit was urged today by Gov. Harold E. Stassen of Minnesota in a speech in Town Hall. Gov. Stassen advanced a seven point program for world-wide ad ministration after the war: 1. Temporary governmental con trol over each Axis nation, includ ing entire disarmament, punishment of their criminal leadership, but no “inhuman” vengeance against en tire populations. 2. Establishment of an airways commission having international ad ministration of air fields, radio beams, weather reports and airways traffic codes. 3. Control of the “Gateways of the Seven Seas.” 4. Plans to increase the literacy of all the world's people. 5. Establishment of a United Na tions court to administer an inter national code of justice. 6. Establishment of a trade com mission. In this connection. Gov. Stassen said that "Gov. Lehman could well be the forerunner.” (Her bert H. Lehman is the newly ap pointed American relief and re habilitation director for nations lib erated from the Axis.) 7. Establishment of an interna tional legion which would serve ns a police force to enforce the United Nations' post-war program. Gov. Stassen suggested that the seat of the international govern ment be in “some such place as Panama, which would be acceptable to all countries.” On the post-war home front, the Minnesota Governor called for pub lic'works and improvements “with out resort to make work projects of the demoralizing thumb-twiddling or leaf-raking variety.” "The alternative.” Gov. Stassen said of his international program, "is recurring wars of increasing tragedy and horror.” 3 Pet. Transit Tax on Scrap To Be Passed to Consumer B> ihf A&ftociated Pre?*. The Office of Price Administra tion today authorized sellers of iron and steel scrap to pass on to ! consumers the 3 per cent transport ation tax which became effective December 1 under the 1942 Revenue Act. OPA said that if sellers of iron and steel scrap were required to absorb I the tax, the resultant reduction in their margins at the shipping point would tend to Impede the flow of scrap into industrial production. In another order today, OPA es tablished maximum prices for tota quina, a newly developed product of i cinchona bark which will be used ; in fighting malaria in this country, : thus freeing supplies of quinine for the armed forces. Retail prices for the new product will be about half the cost of ' quinine, but OPA pointed out that 1 larger doses are required.

Material from leaves of palm trees: "The brown-colored leaves burned, but not so rapidly as the previous two materials. It is diffi cult to say whether it is because of any chemical treatment they may have received or because of the density of the material." 4.

Roosevelt Signs Measure Clarifying Service Pay President Roosevelt today signed a bill to clarify the method of com puting pay of officers in the various branches of the armed services, un der the new Pay Act of 1942. To offset a decision of the con troller general's office, the bill allows all periods during which officers of ' any of the military branches may have served as Reserve or National Guard officers, to be counted in com- j puting length of service for pay pur- i poses. The bill also provides that officers in the Regular Establishment may count, for pay purposes, any time they may have served previously in the Reserve or National Guard. Un der the old law Regular officers ap pointed since June. 1922. might count for pay purposes only active commissioned service. The bill also adds a new section to the Pay Act of 1942 to allow time spent as an enlisted man or warrant officer t.o be counted for pay pur poses if the individual becomes a commissioned officer. The Senate committee that drafted the bill took the view that during wartime men in the service who are elevated to commissions should be given credit for service in the ranks, for pay purposes.
