Stinison recently issued a statement that "every soldi- er and every item of equip- ment" will be marshalled against the Japanese when the hostilities in Europe cease. "Shipping priority," says the Sec, "will he given to the movement of men and materials to the Pacific. All speed consistent with the military situation will he ap- plied in returning men who can he released from the Army from overseas. But any suggestion that large numbers will be coining home for discharge inimedi- j afely after the fighting slops j in Europe can only1 lead to cruel disappointment. There can be no relaxing until the military job of crushing Germany and Japan is carr- ied to a filial and successful conclusion." Sec. Stimson made his announcement in denial of the statement made by^Brig. Gen. Frank T. Mines that 200,000 to 250,000 soldiers would be released monthly when the European war end- ed. Stinison called Mines' announcement "both un- authorized and without foundation."
