ll. S. Vows To In Okinawa As Long As Threats Continue
By FOBERT EUNSON
NAKA, Okinawa (AP)—“We will remain here so long as threats and tensions continue to
The threats referred to are from Communist China.
The tensions have gripped this part of the world 19 years.
Here happens to be Okinawa, a 67-mile-long island, believed to be Uncle Sam’s most impor
tant nuclear weapons base in the Far East. It is 15 minutes,) as the jets fly, from Red China.
The statement about remain-; ing here was made by Lt. Gen. Paul W. Caraway, high commissioner to the Ryukyu Islands since 1961.
“We’re here for national security and to fulfill our com-1 mitments to the free world ” I Caraway told The Associated I
Press. “We can only carry out that task if we are unimpeded."
Asked about a suggestion that
political control of the Ryukyus be returned to Japan with the United States still retaining its I vast network of air and mili-' tary bases, Caraway replied “anything is possible.”
“Article Three of the Japa-j nese peace treaty says the Unit-1 ed States is given—and the Japanese agreed to it—any and all powers of administration, legis- j lative and judicial, in the Ryukyu Islands. The United States can exercise these powers so long as it wishes,” he said.
Asked if Okinawa actually
might ie written off in case of an all-out war because of its proximity to the Chinese main land, Caraway snapped:
“This is an attitude that is dc veloping in the United States, especially among Washington newsmen. We will remain here so long as threats and tensions continue to exist.”
One school of thought among j this island's 95,000 American inhabitants, including the 3rd Marine Division, is that Okina wa would be safer than the | mainland since both the Communists and the United States would be blasting at each other's homeland in case of atomic war.
Okinawa Is known as “the billion-dollar base," but that figure can’t include all Uncle Sam has invested here. The whole island is one mighty bt,se. Military and civilian roads, telephone systems, water and power networks are completely integrated.
Bases on Japan have been emasculated, so far as any true strength is concerned, because of left-wing opposition to nuclear weapons or the basing there of planes or vessels which transport them.
“We are here to meet our security arrangements with our allies," Caraway declared. “We’re here to protect the

Western Pacific from aggros I
Caraway retires Aug. I and will be succeeded by Lt. Gen. Albert Watson II. The job is the nearest thing the United States has had to a governor-general in the Pacific since it gave up the Philippines. And that is the position some Americans in Okinawa want Caraway and his successor to have.
“We need an organic act by Congress which will put the; Ryukyus in a commonwealth status, such as we have Puerto Rico, Guam, or used to havej the Philippine Islands,” says i Howard McClellan, president of the American Chamber of Com- j merce on Okinawa.
McClellan and other Ameri- j cans here hold that a common-, wealth status is necessary until such time as the islands revert to Japan.
Post Office Cut Will Have Small Effect Here: Larson
Accuse Chinese Of Searching For Partners
MOSCOW (AP) — The Soviet Communist party suggested today that Red China’s leaders are playing up to capitalists in West Germany, Britain, France and Japan.
The allegation was made by Kommunist, the Soviet party's official theoretical journal, and was distributed in advance of publication by the government news agency Tass.
“When Chinese propaganda speaks about the struggle against imperialism,” Kommu-i nist declared, “it reduces it only to the struggle against the United States, bypassing their allies—West European and Japanese imperialists.
“Is it possible that the Chinese leaders are looking for partners among the monopolist circles of West German, Britain, France and Japan in the struggle against so-called 'modern revisionism?’ ”
The latter term is one the Chinese use in attacking Premier Khrushchev’s policies, including his espousal of peaceful coexistence with the West.
Insecticides Kill Mississippi Fish
NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP)— Huge fish kills on the lower Mississippi by potent insecticides may force a choice between the farmer and the river.
Scientists from the U.S. Public Health Service told a pollution investigating committee Tuesday that Endrin and similar pesticides are the villains.
The kills, involving millions of fish, have hit the lower Mississippi and the Atchafalaya River, which branches off the Mississippi through Louisiana.
The problem is: Banning the pesticides would make life more) difficult for farmers, who use I them to destroy pests that prey j on crops.
Some scientists, and spokesmen for manufacturers of the insecticide, deny charges that, the chemicals are responsible! for the river damage.
The PHK scientists testified before representatives of pollution control agencies from Ark ansas, Louisiana, Mississippi! and Tennessee.

The eight city carrier routes' will continue the same service

as in the past. Parcels up to two pounds (and not bigger than a shoe box) will he delivered by city carriers. Mounted routes will deliver parcel post as usual six days a week. About one-fourth of all parcel post packages are in this category.
In the small post offices in the Huron area where no additional clerical hours will be require ed on Saturdays, they will continue the same services as usual, including issuing money orders on that day.
At the'same time. Larson said, he has received information on the national scope of the service adjustments which indicate very little overall effect is anticipated from the order, whoich started Monday.
“Many of our local people who send mail to other points — many who visit other cities and transact postal business in those areas — and many others who will be in other communities at vacation time will be interested,’’ he explained.
He released the following national findings on the overall effect of the adjustments:
Only an estimated six to eight per cent of total parcel post will be affected in any way. Ac-ions to elininate delays will laregly or entirely offset any delays that would otherwise result from the adjustment, and it is expected overall service will be improved. About 2,800 smaller and medium-size post offices do not have any parcel post routes now and their service is not involved at all, of course.
Window service on Saturday will continue to provide all essential services — stamp sales, parcel post transactions, registry, COD services, etc.
Post office lobbies normally open on Saturday will not bo “closed down.” Lobbies will be open for lock box services, stamp dispenser service, mail deposit, etc.
Postmasters at most smaller post offices will sell, and rural carriers will continue to take applications for money order* on Saturdays. Rural carriers serving out of such offices will dispatch money orders received on Saturdays, on the same day; otherwise if they serve out of larger city offices, their rural money order applications will be handled early Monday.
Window services in at least 20,000 post offices which have never had more than one window open on Saturdays are, of course, unchanged.
