A feb. 7.�? among the Paramount issues in this years congressional election i Campaign is almost certain to be the question whether the adminis traction is pushing America s War efforts vigorously and efficiently enough. Already there Are charges being made that the country is too complacent too overconfident about j the War and that the adm Nistra j _ Tion is to blame for this attitude. And Aerial duels boats tentatively when republicans fire the opening j by Paul Freye rays from the rising Sun further scorched Allied skins last week and Only a few defenders of the Southwest Pacific were Able to remain in the Shade. The unite nations saw no Hope for an Early Sunset either. Tokyo has promised to take Singa port by feb. La. The japanese last week took Possession of Albiona dutch base and second most important in the far East. The Jap threatened Java Headquarters of the allies. He was almost set for another All out attack to mop up the Philippines and in Burma he was keeping China a Road lifeline in constant danger. By Friday army and Navy experts in Washington admitted the Gravity of the situation said the Jap still had the advantage of his Pearl Harbor Surprise and predicted More reverses in the far East until that Surprise element could be overcome. The japs and the British glared at each other across the Johore Strait separating Singapore Island and the malay Mainland. Shells whistled across from both sides planes roared in bombing raids crept out on the water and promptly were blasted into bits. News came thursday although indirectly that the base had been heavily reinforced and that it now has its biggest Garrison in history. Tuesday the australian army minister Francis Forde said that an Allied a a drive was under Way and gave encouragement to the men at Singapore. Wednesday Generalissimo Wavell said that help was on the Way and asked no Retreat. But the japs took Albiona Between celebes and new Guinea and from there were attacking so Rabaja the Java base. It appeared that the Little yellow men would attempt to capture Java and Force United nations Headquarters to Australia the very last outpost with Melbourne the very last operating base a Way Down under. Gen. Douglas Macarthur repulsed attack after attack and still had some of the Bataan Peninsula left to defend from the philippine invaders. By weeks end the jape had shelled forts drum Hughes and Mills which guard Manila Bay along with Corregidor and it looked like the big blow would come soon. The allies did some clawing at the sides of the Mikado a dragon last week. Admiral Thomas Hart sent a fall types of units of the u. S. Far Eastern Fleet into a Surprise raid on the Marshall and Gilbert islands which straddle the sea lanes to Hawaii. Eleven u. S. Planes were lost but no ships. Considerable damage was done to japanese units which apparently were getting set for another try at the hawaiians. Meanwhile american and British pilots were collecting a total of 122 Jap planes Over Rangoon in defense of Burma and the Imperial defenders seemed to have the attackers halted at the Salween River. On tuesday u. S. Planes Sank two ships off Borneo. Over in Russia the germans were desperate. Field Marshall Goering talked with Mussolini in Italy monday and by Friday the nazis were Able to announce that italian planes were coming to the Aid of the retreating germans. Fine flying weather was allowed the Hitler forces to bring reinforcements by air to the front. Russian dispatches acknowledged More troops in the Way of advancing reds but still claimed gains. The pincer on Smolensk took a fresh grip by weeks end with news from Moscow that Rah eve rear guard pocket of the gun of the election Campaign in their Lincoln Day speeches this week National discussion of the War Effort will enter a political phase. To shed Light on the present j attitude of the american people to gain More information on their state of mind regarding the prosecution of the War the american Institute of Public opinion has taken the Issue directly to the Public in one of its nationwide sampling surveys. It put this question to a Cross Section of the i nation s voters in All walks of life a do you think the United states is doing All it can toward winning the War a the results Are yea78% no.17 undecided. 5 the results will be of unusual interest to observers throughout the country. Some will undoubtedly say the vote shows the Public smugly satisfied and complacent. Others will claim that the country has literally produced marvels in its War Effort and that the Public a attitude is on the whole justified. As a fact finding organization whose sole aim is to measure Public sentiment As it exists the Institute is not concerned with whether the Public a appraisal of the situation is right or wrong justified or unjustified. The country a attitude is especially significant on two counts 1. The Early military and naval reverses which the United states suffered in the Pacific have apparently not caused any untoward alarm up to this time nor have these reverses shaken the Public a belief that everything possible is being done to push the War Effort. What the political Campaign will do to this Point of View remains to be checked in future Institute surveys. 2. The Public a appraisal of the War situation is necessarily based on what political and military leaders and writers have had to say plus the Public a own interpretation of War news from Day to Day. If one chosen to think that the poll results show Public complacency then the Public a own leaders Are at least partially to blame for encouraging an optimistic attitude. Party attitudes differ.
