LONDON, April 13.-The Unite(

nation's export of war materials t

Delivery of the British-American
note concerning Swedish trade with

the fourth blade in U.S. Secretary of
State Cordell Hull's new program. It
was widely expected to be followed

Nazis Attempt Barter
Neutral reports to London indi-

taking the Allied moves lying down
and were sending delegations to Tur-

A report from Lisbon said that
Portuguese trade papers contained
advertisements of German offers to
barter steel and modern machine-
tools, indicating that the Nazis still
felt they could spare these items in
their strained economy in exchange
for vital raw materials such as wolf-
ram and currency for foreign trade.
The moves were made amid con-
ferences here between U.S. Under-
Secretary of State Edward R. Stet-

cials on mutual problems, including
the question of neutrals, and with
indications that Prime Minister
Churchill soon would endorse pub-

NEW DELHI, April 13-British and

The disclosure that the enemy had
lost a position on the foothills north-
west of Imphal made it evident that

in the Naga hills just north of Kohi-

As a result of the Allied counterat-
tacks, the Japanese had not been
able to resume their assault on Ko-

back with losses in their first charge
last week end. Kohima is 60 miles
north of Imphal.

Capt. Rickenbacker's Record
Smashed by Pacific AAF Ace

By The Associated Press

ing no unnecessary chances" because
he "wants to get back," Capt. Richarc
I. Bong of Poplar, Wis., is America's
new ace of all wars, with a record of
27 Japanese planes shot out of the
A special headquarters announce-
ment tonight said he got two en-
emy planes Wednesday over Hol-
landia, Dutch New Guinea, to sur-
pass by one Capt. Eddie Ricken-
backer's World War record of 26
Army Capt. Don Gentile of Piqua,
0., recently has been hailed for his
feat of destroying 30 enemy planes in
the European theatre, but his record
included seven demolished on the
ground. Those don't count in com-
piling records in the Southwest Paci-
fic. You have to get 'em in the air.
("I am delighted," commented
Rickenbacker when notified in New
York of the new" record. He said
he expected to see his own achieve-
ment broken many times in this
war and he didn't care whether
"the boys" bagged them in the air,
on the ground or how, just so they
get them "in order to bring this
dastardly war to an earlier end.")
Captain Bong, who is flying his
seventh Lightning since coming to
New Guinea, got his wings at Luke
Field, Phoenix, Ariz. Ordered to active
duty in this area in September, 1942,1
he shot down his first Nipponese
plane over Salamaua, New Guinea,
the following Dec. 28.
When he returned in February
from a leave that took him 'to the
United States, Bong had 21 planes
to his credit. A week ago today, with
25 victories, he commented that Jap-
anese fighter pilots "are not as good


as they used to be," that they are
"dumb or something, for we can get a
bead on them pretty easy."
Into combat with the new ace
goes a large picture of his girl
friend, Miss Marge Vattendahl, of
Superior, Wis. It is painted on the
nose of his Lightning.
Perhaps that's why, last week, he
said he would like to better Ricken-
backer's mark, "but most of all I
want to be sure that I get back."
Today, having accomplished that
feat, he still wants to get back, and
adds, "I'm taking no unnecessary

GOP Regresses,

Plastic replicas of bombers, fight-
ers and pursuits and transports-17
in all-are suspended from the ceil-
ing of the second floor of Hutchins
Hall as a complement to the military
training program of the Judge Advo-
cate General's School.
The miniatures are black so as to
look like the silhouettes seen in the
air. The purpose of the models is to
teach the students to distinguish be-
tween friendly and enemy aircraft.
24 Represented
Among the planes in the collection
is the B-24 Liberator which is built
at Willow Run. This high midwing
monoplane with four radial engines
is a long-range bomber and is used
in all theatres. It has high speed,
powerful armaments and is extremely
maneuverable for its size. All of
these factors reduce the number of
fighter craft needed for its protec-
The B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-
engine, low-wing monoplane designed
for high altitude day-time precision
bombing of restricted targets. The
B-17 was the first long-range Ameri-
can bomber.
Also included in the collection is a
replica of the C-54 Skymaster. This
troop and cargo carrier is the largest
troop transport. The Skymaster can
carry more than 40 fully equipped
soldiers. The C-47 Skytrain gets
its name from its use as a troop
carrier and as a glider tug.
Model of B-25 Shown
Also in the collection is the model
of the B-25 Mitchell which received
considerable publicity as the result of
its use ,in the bombing raid on Tokyo
in April, 1942. The C-60 Lodestar
model is a replica of the military ver-
sion of the world's fastest commercial
Other interesting data that can
be learned from the identification
cards that accompany the models is
that the P-39 Airacobra is rated

Kittyhawk, is one of the most ver-

is one of the largest and fastest

that it was designed for fighting at

In addition to speed, range and ex-

versatility is an outstanding charac-

Clergymen, Educator
Debate Methods, Aims
"Religion can be taught in the
American public school system, ac-
cording to the Constitution, but sec-
tarianism cannot," Dr. Edward
Blakeman, student religious advisor,
said in a Post-War sponsored panel
last night on "Education for Reli-
All four of the participants in the
panel, Dr. Blakeman, Prof. Claude
Eggertsen, the Rev. C. H. Loucks and
Rabbi Jehudah Cohen agreed that
the system of release time, which
frees pupils for classes in religion is
in general undesirable.
Rabbi Cohen commented that Jews
have found particular difficulty in
obtaining religious education in addi-
tion to secular education but opposed
release time because the "Jewish
group fears a close relationship be-
tween church and state" which might
follow from religious instruction of
school children.
"Traditionally our nation has a
religious base," Rev. Loucks said, and
for this reason there should be a
place and time for religious instruc-
tion in our present day culture. He
pointed out, however, that minority
groups would be at a disadvantage,
because of lack of funds, in any
system of religious 'instruction for
school children..
Prof. Eggertsen sketched the back-
ground of education in America,
emphasizing Horace Mann's work in,
freeing education from the control
of religious groups. "The belief is
that Horace Mann's principle is still
a sound one," he said. "The educa-
tor ... views the introduction of reli-
gion into the public schools as a
danger," he added, "because the-pu
pose of education is to unite" and
not to divide the people into sects.
