Wi Be Held Here
For CIO Leaders
Under the joint sponsorship of the
University and the United Auto
Workers' Division of the CIO, 200
representatives of organized labor
will meet here from June 19 to
June 28.
Termed a "very important" meet-
ing by Dr. Charles Fisher, director
of the extension service, the labor
leaders will be instructed in labor
history, labor law and economics,
consumer's cooperatives, conversion
of war work, public speaking and
taxation.
The precedent for labor meetings
of this type was set some years ago
when Prof. John W. Riegel of the
economics department held a meet-
ing here of state AFL officials. The
coming conference will be led by pro-
fessors and union leaders.
Manufacturing capital outlays this
year will be close to five billion dol-
lars, the Department of Commerce
reported.

able to see the ocean when the cloud

Japs Sighted
Their course took them along the
northern edge of the Island of Tagu-
la, then north past the eastern tip
of Masima. Lieut.-Comm. Hamilton,
leading the dive bombers, picked out
the Japanese 50 miles away. Visibil-
ity was perfect, the sky cloudless,
and the white wakes of the vessels
showed as silver streaks on the
emerald-blue sea.
"We came over at 12,000 feet,"
Lieut.-Comm. Bob Dixon explained
later. "Enemy fighter patrols were
in the air, but they barely reached
us as we eased off into our vertical
dives. These fighters came right on
down with us in a terrible free-for-
all mixup, staying with us right to
the water. Naturally we went for
the carrier first.
"It was obvious we had caught
them by surprise. They had a num-
ber of planes on deck, and one was
coming up from the hangar deck in
the elevator. I could see it all clearly
as I kept my eye on them, sighting
for the release point."
Zeros Confused
A dozen or more pilots told of that
"fighting dive" the counts had made.
The enemy were in Zero (navy)
fighters--best Jap combat ship-and
they seemed to be confused by the
refusal of the scout pilots to be dis-
tracted from their dives. While the
pilots kept their eyes glued to their
front dive sights, the rear gunners
with their twin .30 caliber machine
guns dealt with the Zeros.
Fighter pilots sitting up at 16,000
feet with the heavy dive bombers
reported that Dixon's dive was per-
fectly made and his 500-pound bomb
hit the Jap carrier deck amidships.
Behind him Ensign P. F. Neely
dropped his 500-pounder near the
carrier's port side. The blast of Nee-
ly's bomb tossed two burning planes
over the side.
Ensign Smith put his 500-pounder
on the carrier's starboard anti-air-
craft battery. It silenced the guns
and blew three more planes over-
board.
Lieut. J. A. Leppler's scout bomber
was attacked as the dive steepened
to the vertical. His rear gunner, John
Lisko, shot down two Zeros that
closed to point-blank range, firing
their cannon and .25 caliber machine
guns as they came. Leppler saw a
Zero on the tail of the scout ahead
of him and veered in the dive ,enough
to get it in the sights of his front
guns. This Zero never came out of
its dive and crashed into the sea.
Leppler's 500-pound bomb missed the
carrier, and he immediately zoomed
away to make a second dive from
4,000 feet on a Jap cruiser. One 100-
pound bomb hit the cruiser's stern.

United Nations To Share War
CostsOn Ability To Pay' Basis

Jap Columns Drive Toward Vital Rail Center

WASHINGTON, July 15.-(A)-The
financial cost of the war will be
shared by the United Nations accord-I
ing to their ability to pay, Congress
was told today in a presidential re-
port which disclosed that lend-lease
aid had reached nearly $4,500,000,000
by the end of May.
This distribution of cost would be
attained, the report said, "if each
country devotes roughly the same
fraction of its national production
to the war."
The document indicated that if the
United States converted 50 percent
of her vast production to war pur-I
poses. she would call it square, so
far as lend-lease is concerned, with
any other United Nation which con-
verted a similar portion of produc-'

tion. Neither the volume of output
nor the dollar value would be the
governing factor.
"Such a distribution of the finan-
cial cost of war means that no na-
tion will grow rich from the war ef-
fort of its allies," the report said.
"The money cost of the war will fall
according to the rule of equality in
sacrifice as in effort."
The United States intends, the re-
port declared, to avoid "the political
and economic mistakes of interna-
tional debt experienced during the
twenties."
It spoke of hopes that plans would
develop soon for "a series of agree-
ments and recommendations for leg-
islation in the fields of commercial
policy, of money and finance, inter-
national investment and reconstruc-
tion."
