Told Spaatz about trigger motors for A-24’s in Australia on basis of MacArthur’s radio. Said he hadn’t heard of this before!

Somervell (G-4) did a good job finding boats. We’ll get off 21,000 men on January 21 to Australia; but I don’t know when we can get all their equipment and supplies to them. Ships! Ships! All we need is ships! Also ammunition – A.A. guns – tanks – airplanes – what a headache!
