Burma Garrisons Reinforced

RANGOON, Burma, Jan. 14.--P)-
Both air and land reinforcements-
the first to reach the British Far East
in more than a month of war with
Japan-have arrived in all-import-
ant Burma. More are on the way.
An official announcement said to-
day that these included anti-aircraft
batteries for Rangoon and other key
points and additional ground crews
for air units landed at Burmese air
fields, some of which are hidden in
the jungle close to Thailand, spring-
board for Japan's drive on Singa-
(The wording of this dispatch may
indicate that aircraft and aviation
personnel apart from those making
up the ground crews have arrived.
The British have announced they do
not intend to disclose movements of

aircraft and this might apply like-
wise to fliers.
(Burma's air strength already ap-
pears to be the greatest of any Bri-
tish Far East possession. Some of
the heaviest raids on Thailand have
been made from there.)
Fresh British and Indian troops
gave new hope that Burma will b -
come the base for a strong counter-
offensive against, the Japanese armies
which are pouring into Malaya from
The RAF forces in Burma now are
truly Imperial. There are pilots from
England, Canada, Australia and
South Africa. (In addition, Ameri-
can veteran pilots grouped in a vol-
unteer squadron are protecting the
Burma Road to China and engaging
in the air defense of Rangoon.)

circle with the words "Spirit of Ypsi-

first of the $300,000 bombers to be
turned out by the mammoth Ford

Jean Ohlinger of 311 Wallace Blvd.
She is a junior in the Ypsilanti high
school and is majoring in art.
Buttons bearing the plane's insig-
nia will be specially prepared in full
colors and will go gratis to each local
residernt purchasing defense bonds or
stamps during the campaign sched-
uled to end March 1.
The girl whose design won thinks
she's "sort of lucky."

Today when most living costs are rising, and
nearly every household budget must be revised
upward, it is a welcome relief to find one price
that HAS NOT advanced. Electricity costs less
today than it did a year ago, two years ago, five
years ago. And it costs a good deal less than
ten or twenty years ago.
'our residence rates have been reduced five
times in the last twenty years. The average price
per kilowatthour paid by our residence cus-
tomers today is 46 per cent less than in 1921.

ily budget-way down at the bottom of the list.
