About 40 ships and 18,000 men will attempt to retake the island from a hypothetical foe. Progress of the mock raid or an expected counterattack by land based Navy and Air Force planes was blacked out by security regu lations. The entire Aleutian is land chain went under a wartime alert. An amphibious force of 2,000 Marines is undergoing cold weather tests and is expected to take part in mock ladings later in the week. Rear Admiral B. J. Rodgers, commander of amphibious forces in the Pacific, said he was pleased with the performance of men and equipment in the opening stages of the exercise. Next year, he said, the tests may be held on the Alaska mainland, “where is really gets cold.” Wether here has ranged right around freezing, but temperatures of 40 to 70 below occur on the mainland. He said equipment has proved “surprisingly effec tive.” /For Hire \ frUXEDOS. CUTAWAYS' [ FULL DRESS * With Complete Accessories J f\ Formal Overcoats * \ and Top Hats / M. STEIN & CO. 1714 L ST.

Phone NA. ‘2820 _ PoliceDuefoComplete Probe of Cab Driver's Beating in a Few Days The Police Department's inves tigation of the facts behind the mysterious beating of a cab driver at Thomas Circle January 14 will be completed within a tew days. Inspector Robert S. Bryant, chief of detectives, said today. Focal point of the investigation is whether the beating was inflic-> ted by two out-of-town hoodlums or by two members of the vice squad. Police Supt. Robert J Barrett said last week that a report that two plainclothesmen were involved prompted the reassignment of De tective Sergeant James Roche and Pvt. Angelo Bonaccorsy, both of whom were attached to the vice squad. Victim is uncertain. The injured cab driver, James Rowell, said he thought his asail ants were from out of the city and were not policemen. Inspector Bryant, it was learned, was to get a statement today from two second precinct policemen who were in the vicinity of Thomas Circle at the time. The two uniformed men, Pvt. M. W. McClanahan and Pvt. D. F. Reid, reportedly stated that they' heard a commotion while they were north of Thomas Circle and ran across the circle to the scene. When they reaclftd the other side of the circle, they are reported to have told their superiors, a car with three men in it had dis appeared and “nobody seemed to know anything about it.’’ Different Version Offered. This version differed from one given The Star last Saturday night by a man who said he wit nessed part of the incident. This man said he heard cries for help and began to run toward ; the scene. Two running uni formed policemen passed him, he said, and approached the two men standing over a third man on the ground. He said the police men then turned and walked slowly away. He said he then saw the two men lift the fallen man and put him in a car which drove away. Mr. Rowell has said that after he was beaten up he was put in a car which drove him around the block and then let him out at Thomas Circle. The cab driver said today he did not see any uniformed police men, but he pointed out that he was lying face down and in a dazed condition. He expressed some surprise that he didn't see the policeman when his assailants dropped him at the same corner. He said as far as he could recall he was only in the car long enough to go around the block. It could not be learned how long the policemen stayed on the cor | ner while investigating the dis turbance. Meanwhile, police said no call for assistance had been recorded from the vicinity of Thomas Circle during the early hours of January 14 when Mr. Rowell was beaten. Mr. Rowell said the two men accused him of having telephoned the precinct to report that they had been beating up another man.
