Besides threatening to lay Japan waste, the atomic bomb also was credited with blowing Russia into the conflict, thus bringing the total Allied weight to bear against the Nipponese. In all, these two events served to climax the growing tem- po of the Allied drive in the Pacific, which saw U. S. forces virtually sit- ring on Japan's doorstep at the ces- sation of hostilities.

S. sea, land and air forces perched right on Nippon's. doorstep, Though the main body of Japa- nese troops had not been touched by the steady U. S. advances westward, the American navy's mastery of the sea lanes as far as the Chinese coast interrupted the shipment of vital ma- terial to the home islands for in- dustrial processing, and the B-29s' terrific bombardment ~f manufactur- ing centers greatly curtailed output. With deliveries of materials cut. and output dwindling, the effectiveness of an estimated 4,000,000 remaining enemy troops stood to be severely limited. On top of it all, Russia's invasion of Manchuria and threat to Jap- held China promised to tap the only remaining important enemy indus- trial source outside the homeland. [Japan's Imperial Ambitions Led to War| During the twenties Japan ex- panded her commercial influence deep into Chinese territory. By 1931 a formidable boycott developed. Jap- anese troops were used to crush this organized protest. This violation of treaty rights aroused the world. Belore the Twentieth century Ja- pan's imperial ambitions were re- atr/cted to Korea. the coast of China and some neighboring islands in the Japanese sea. Japanese leaders m~ddenly realized the power of west- ern armament, During the next half Japan defiantly resigned from the League of Nations in 1933, when trou- ble .in the '~ruce area" of China was again the occasion for battling. century Japan was modernized so auecessl~lly that the Japanese vic- tories over China in 1894, and Russia 1905 were swift and conclusive. is called the 124th emperor of Ja- pan by the Japanese court authori- ties. When he ascended the throne in 1926, he chose the word "Showa," meaning "enlightenment and peace," to describe his reign. Many political experts believe that personally Hirehito wanted peace, but as the puppet of the mill. tary clique had to go along with their designs.~ Actually he wield~ little real power. His actual "reign" began in 1921, then as prince re- gent he ruled in his father's stead. He was married in 1924 and is the father of one son and three daugh. ters. RECONVERSION: Next Job With World War H fllgished, and with the nation's great armament production due to be slashed, inter- ~st mounted in the government's program for switching industry back to a peacetime basis and pro- viding continued high employment. Shortly before the cessation of hostilities, President Truman called in War Production Board Chiefta/n Krug to go over plans for speeding up reconversion to prevent a large- scale rupture of the country's crone- my after V-J day. At the meeting, it was deter- mined that the WPB was to con- duct a vigorous drive for the expan- sion of production of materials in short supply to meet all demands; limit manufacture of articles re- quiring scarce materials; establish effective control over material stock. piles to prevent speculative hoard. Ins that would endanger the stabil. zation program; provide priority assistance to break bottlenecks that might impede the switch back to civilian goods, and allocate scarce materials for lower priced articles to ~ costs down. had been missing for about an hour when a search party was organized. Soon it was discovered that the missing child had been found in a cistern right by the back kitchen steps of the Thoreson home. The child had fallen in the narrow cistern entrance in some manner so the cover again fell back into place and the tragedy enacted naturally was not suspected. Mr. Thoreson was the one who finally made the discovery and the-child was taken from the cistern and immediately given first aid. But all efforts proved in vain and the child died, TRUCK CRASH KILLS SOLDIER GRAND FORKS.--An army air corps sergeant was killed and nine persons injured recently at Great Falls, Mont when the a~my truck in which they were returning to the Great Falls army air base from a picnic, overturned. The victim of the crash was identified as Sgt Robert Louis Butler, 27, of Gore Field, and Grand Forks, N. Dak. The truck was returning from an outing at Belt and a car with bright lights approached from the west, and blinded the driver. Trying to avoid a collision, the truck swerved out of control and turned over. Sgt. Butler is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Butle~ and a sister at Grand Forks. Mandan Couple Parents of Triplets MAN'DAN.---The population of Mandan took an upward boom recently when triplets were born to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Larson here. It is believed that this is the first triple birth occurring in this city. The triplets are two boys, identical twins, and one girl, all normal and healthy. The physician in charge was Dr. H. A. Wheeler. The babies weigh approximately four pounds each and are being kept in an incubator. The Larson's have three oth~ children. 1 2 $ 4 S 6 7 8 9 I0 11 12 13~ 14' 15 16 ~t7 18 ~t9 23 2"/ 3O 24 50 51 52 53 54 4a 49 55 56 5"7 HORIZONTAL I Indian moccasin 4 Two of a kind 8 The finish II Anglo-Saxon coin 12 A melody 13 To plunder 15 Mediterra. nean ever- green tree 17 Kind 19 Negative 20 A color 21 Collection of facts 22 A measure of weight 23 Eating regimen 25 The bitter vetch 26 Biblical weed 27 To mistake 28 Perfect score in golf 29 Part of body 30 A compass point 31 Circumspect 33 To perform 35 Carpenter's tool 36 A weapon 37 Initials of a famous flying organization 38 Sharp and biting to the taste No 24 40 Askew 41 A small de- pression 42 A feline 43 A dance step 44 Hindu cymbals 45 Printer's measure 40 A marsh 47 Garden vegetable 50 Only 52 At any time 54 Billiard stick 55 Hard-shelled fruit 56 The re- mainder 57 A number VERTICAL 1 Small dog 2 A constella- tion $ Small roller under a piece of furniture 4 Ache 5 Part of a circle 6 Two (Roman numerals) 7 Showers 8 Antlered animal 9 A ~egative 10 A giver 14 Characteris- tic style 18 To make lace edging 18 Note of scale 21 Debt overdue and unpaid (pl.) 22 Label - 25 Animal's lair 24 Anger 25 Hearing organ 26 The sesame 28 Animal's foot 29 Alcoholic drink 31 Ill'bred fellow 32 Method of cooking 33 Man's nick- name 34 Often (poetic) 35 To have a seat 37 A widow 38 High card (pl.) 39 A rule 40 To bet 41 Child for "father" 43 Italian river 44 Sharp to taste 46 To stake on an uncertain issue 47 Things in law 48 To petition 49 A chicken 51 Chinese card game 53 Brother of Odin Answer to Puzzle No. ~I, ,terles
