terials and equipment are now being
burned up, the war could not last
longer if fought with such savagery."
To substantiate his prediction that
the Japanese will direct their main
force to Eastern Siberia, Colonel Mil-
ler said the enemy's supply lines
would be too long and vulnerable if
he attacked Australia or India. "The
Japanese would never be safe with
the powerful Russians at their back,"
he contended. The Siberian move
will be timed to coincide with a Ger-
man offensive in the opigion of Col-
onel Miller.
Army Of 500,000
He pointed to a recent statement
made by Free French leader, Charles
DeGaulle, as "basic" in his assump-
tion that the United States needs an
expeditionary army of only 500,000
men, supplemented by a force of
200,000-300,000 for supply and main-
General DeGaulle expressed his
hope that "the United States would
not make the mistake of thinking a
few million men in uniform make
an army."
Colonel Miller believes a constant
flood of expenditure of excellent im-
plements of war, not a large army,
is the key to the situation. "Our
working rule must demand that a
useful man will not be taken out of
industry until he has been replaced,"
Colonel Miller emphasized. "To call
a worker-and possible soldier-a
slacker because he doesn't wear a uni-
form is worse than folly, after we
have seen the plight of our men in
the Philippines, Singapore and the
Dutch East Indies, men who died be-
cause they did not have guns and
planes and tanks," he declared.
Equipment Is Vital
Citing the overwhelming successes
of the Germans in Holland and the
Japanese-whom he claims have used
a total of less than 500,000 men in all
their recent Pacific operations-Col-
onel Miller said that if the United
States fills its quota of 500,000 men,
stocked at every moment with enough
equipment "to keep them going furi-
ously," the Allies will triumph.
"The Nazi spring offensive will," in
his opinion, "be an act of desperation
which will fail because of constantly
growing Russian strength and elim-
ination of Hitler's crack fighters and
materiel." He urged that the United
States send Russia every possible
piece of equipment.
Advising postponement of any con-
templated invasion of France "for a
long, time," Colonel Miller voiced his
conviction that basing of an Allied
force in Greenland, sufficient to hold
her as a relay-point in delivering
fighting planes to Britain, coupled
with invasion of Norway are the first
steps toward final destruction of Ger-
many's stranglehold on the contin-
ent. Norwegian points would be used
for intensive bombig of central Ger-
Bomb Japan
A North Pacific strategy founded
on terrific, unrelenting bombing
raids of Japan was advocated by the
military authority as a means of not

only paralyzing Japanese strength at
its source, but as one which would
bring enemy forces home from vital
areas. He said that Allied navies
could thus attack Japanese outposts
and communications "with far great-
er effectiveness."
These attacks; springing front
American, Alaskan and Russian
points, would make recapture of the
Dutch East Indies, the Philippines
and Singapore-the South Pacific
strategy--a simpler task.
Wreck Jap Islands
Colonel Miller is assured that "the
Japanese have both inferior planes
and inferior pilots." His answer to
the oft-asked question as to the
where-abouts of our Navy in, the
Pacific is that it is "seeing to it that
the Japanese mandated islands,
which have undoubtedly been forti-
fied, are wrecked, permitting the
shipping lanes of the South Pacific
to remain open.."
He favors the same policy toward
Dakar which he believes may well be
a base for Axis submarines which
prey on United Nations' shipping.

landing of a small force of invaders at Calapan (1) on the island of Min-
doro. On the Bataan fighting front (Z) the War Department reported
light artillery fire and an ineffective air raid. General Douglas Mac-
Arthur gave official status to rumors that the Japanese commander,
Lieut.-Gen. Masaharu Homma, had fatally plunged the ceremonial dag-
ger into his vitals in Hari-Kari because of his failure to conquer Bataan.
