The a§is that the Anglo-American air navies in Europe could do the job; Having .said this, however, it must be pointed out that up until recently neither the British nor the American fleets were strong enou'gh tor such an undertaking or to do round-the-clock, big-scale bombing of German cities, .for that matter. I'd hate to have to record here how pitifully small the combined Anglo-American fleet in England was a year ago. The admission of weakness can be made now that the crisis is passed. .There have been other delaying factors. It has been essential to destroy Hitler's war industries as the sure and quick way of crippling his army, which is his most powerful weapon. This has called for the employment of all the bombing strength the Allies could muster. Also, before staging a big-scale invasion of Western France, it was essential that trans-Atlantic communications be secure so that there be no stoppage in the flow of the mountainous supplies and reinforcements needed. This meant that the U-boat menace must be got in hand, and that finally appears to have been achieved. We now presumably have sufficiently large fleets of war planes so that the Allied high command can order bombardment of the French coast when the moment is right. The fall weather is perhaps against invasion, but otherwise the time seems ideal, with the Germans racing against disaster in Russia. Could the Western Allies have staged invasion before this? Moscow has felt that they could and they were unduly cautious, but that's a matter for the British and American commands to decide.

The French coast will have to be blasted to smithereens by bombers and naval guns before we can get ahead with this most titanic and dangerous operation of its kind in the history of the war. The other question submitted t£> this column asks why the Allies haven't invaded Yugoslavia before this. The answer involves several factors. For one thing the Russians haven't wanted an invasion of thjis territory, which they regard as their sphere of influence.

Still, as my questioner points out, this isn't the whole story. Another and very important reason is that before invading Yugoslavia the Allies had to have control of Southern Italy, with plenty of airfield from which to operate. And the fact is that the Anglo-American drive up the Italian peninsula hasn't gone as well as expected. The probabilities' are, too, that the Allied command would want to be prepared to strike at other points in the Balkans simultaneously. This would involve ousting the Germans from the Aegean islands. It might mean the granting of bases to the Allies by the Turks. There's considerable speculation whether the conference in Cario'between British Foreign Secretary Eden and Turkish Foreign Minister Menemencioglu may have been concerned with some such move by Turkey. s BO easy to wear your plates regu- L ->larly—all day—when held firmly in * nlace by this "comfort-cushion"— > dejatist's forrnula-I 5.

Walnut St. Phone 772 Jap Position Becoming More Critical-Knox Washington,—Nov. 9 —(/P)— Secretary of the Navy Knox declared today that the present situation in the South and Southwest Pacific areas warrants the statement that "the Japanese are now in a more critical position than ever before in that area." The navy secretary added at a news conference that "it no longer is a uestipn of holding their outpost positions, but one of actual survival in the southwest area." He described as "nothing short of a disaster" to the Japanese the loss of use of six heavy cruisers in that area. "If they don't look out," Knox said, "they svill be short of those very vital heavy craft when they want to go to sea with their entire fleet." Reviewing actions in the South and Southwest Pacific areas in the last ten days, he declared there NEW YORK COTTON New Yoi-k, Nov. 9 (/P) — Cotton futures advanced about a $1 a bale today on modifications of early peace hopes following Prime Minster Churchill's address.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York, Nov. 9 (^P) Buying courage revived to some extent in today's stock market, after six successive declining sessions in which Monday's relapse was one of the sharpest of the year, and leading rails and industrial specialties enjoyed a good rally. Dealings, fast in the forenoon with large blocks of low-priced issues crowding the ticker tape, tapered in the third hour. Gains, at the best, ranged from fractions to points with scattered climbers up 4 or more. Peace quotations were trimmed in the majority of instances near the close. Transfers were around 1,500,000 shares against yesterday's 2,340,180. Bonds and commodities regained their composure.

He listed first the landing of ma^ rines on Bougainville where posi tions now are being consolidated in preparation for "cleaning out the Japanese on the island." He put in second place the night surface engagement in which American warships sank one Japanese cruiser and four destroyers and damaged two cruisers and two destroyers, with the loss of an American ship. Third, he said, was the surprise attack on Rabaul harbor by navy carrier planes and then by army bombers. Navy planes, he said, hit five of six enemy heavy cruisers with bombs and torpedoes and the sixth was torpedoed. Of two light cruisers, he said, one was torpedoed and bombed and the other was bombed. He added that of the 19 or 20 Japanese destroyers there, two were torpedoed. In addition, he said, American planes destroyed or shot down and five fighter planes and two torpedo bombers missing. Two other torpedo bombers were lost in crashes upon their return. Knox declared there is "absolutely no truth" in Japanese radio claims of heavy destruction of American warships in the South Pacific. It is just another "fishing expedition" in hopes of obtaining information, he said. Knox said that heavy assaults on Japanese shipping have forced the enemy to use small freighters and barges more and more. During the last ten days, he said, about 100 such craft, many of them carrying troops, have been bombed or strat'ed. On Choiseul island, he said 143 Japanese dead had been counted. In addition, he said, 180 tons of enemy supplies and equipmentjiad been destroyed there. American losses there were nine dead and 16 wounded. Allied Salient (Continued From Page One) Schweinfurt, Germany, by bombers based in England. Durazzo in Albania was attacked Sunday night, while last night a railroad bridge south of Grosseto in Italy was blasted by bombers. In the battle area, Allied planes pounded gun positions on the Eighth Army front and attacked enemy trains. Ordnance Established New Record An Army Ordnance maintenance battalion established a remarkable record for combat efficiency in keeping the fast-moving tanks and trucks of the Second Armored Division rolling northward from Licata to Palermo. Col Keith F. Adamson, commanding Southwestern Proving Ground said today that ,95 Ordnance officers and enlisted, men fought in the front lines at Gela and Bampobello for two days and helped the division to establish the American bridgehead in that area despite direct assault by German tanks, shelling by 88-rrim guns, and continuous bombing and strafing by the Luftwaffe. "When the division lunged northward on two parallel, routes,", he said, "highly trained Ordnance combat mechanics followed the American armor closely along narrow, twisting, rocky, mountainous roads. Bridges and .tunnels had been dynamited. Booby traps and demolition mines were numerous. Army Ordnance tanks and trucks were therefore subjected to the most brutal sort of punishment. "Despite these time-consuming obstacles," Col. Adamson declared, "the Ordnance battalion roared into Palermo only five days after the Division had bivouaced outside the city, with all vehicles in running condition except those completely destroyed by enemy shell fire or 'cannibalized' by Ordnance troops." Explaining the word "cannibalized," Col. Adamson said that at the start o'f the 39-day Sicilian campaign, the battalion had only a few extra medium tank engines and no extra transmissions. Ordnance troops therefore cannibalized — that is, completely stripped — three damaged General Sherman tanks of engines, transmissions, tracks, suspensions and all other equipment in order to keep other tanks going. As a result of this ingenuity, the battalion was able to do major repair work, involving removal each time under battle conditions, of 12 tank engines and six transmissions. This was in addition to the quick repair work done on all damaged half-tracks, trucks and cars of one of General Patton's hardest-punching divisions. ARMY MAN MISSING Camp Robinson, Nov, 9 — (/P) — Pvt. George Brookhart, 30, Baltimore, Md., is missing and believed by his superiors to have drowned near Oil Trough, the camp public relations office announced. Brookhart's absence was noticed after his company, attached to the 66th Division here, completed an engineering problem on the White River Sunday. Sforza Spikes Prospects for Assembly By WES GALLAGHER Italian Government Headquarters in Southern Italy, Nov. 0 (/P) — Prospects of assembling a patchwork cabinet representing the various Italian political factions faded today with Count Carlo Sforzn's refusal to join any government headed by King Vittorio Emanuele Sforza, pre-Fascist foreign minister who returned to Italy recently after a long sojourn in the United States, was said to have the support of the leaders of Italy's six anti-Fascist political parties. The sudden flurry ot activity that had sent both the king and Premier Pietro Badoglio scurrying to Naples in an effort to broaden the cabinet thus simmered down to a political truce based on Sforza's promise of "parallel" collaboration at least until Rome is retaken by the Allies. It was expected that the Badoglio government would make some official statement soon on its plans during the interim. Allied officials have been following a strictly hands off policy. One spokesman indicated that as long as Italian politics do not interfere with military operations and there is no undue delay in forming a representative government the Italians \votild be left alone. "It all boils down," he said, "to a question of whether it is best that a temporary broad-based cabinet be formed now. which undoubtedly would have lo be chafigcd when Rome is reached, or whether it would be better to wait until we get to the capital for n more solid government." While the king's position on the throne apparently is secure for the moment, not even the mosl op- limislic members of the government hold out much hope that he will be able to avoid abdicating in the Rome political Junta formed after the fall of Benito Mussolini is of the same mind as the Naples group which is one of ils offshoots. At least 75 edible kinds of seaweed grow in the waters around Hawaii. Outbreaks Follow Hitler's Address Stockholm, Nov. 0 — (/Pi — A Swedish newspaper, in contact with sources within Germany, said today that disturbances, including the shooting of n number of persons, occurred in several cities yesterday after Adolf Hitler's beer cellar speech. The llnnclels Sjoefarts TIclnlnKcn. of Goctcborg, named '.lit 1 cities UK Kssen, Cologne, Duosscldorf, Mannheim, Hannover and Hamburg. These cities arc in hoavily- bombod areas where morale suffered a serious blow and where hundreds of foreign workers still are employed in war industries. Outbreaks of sabotage and plundering in those areas also followed the speech, this dispatch said, but such reports should be viewed with considerable reserve. If disturbances did occur, they may have been only on a small scale, since Heinrich Hiinmler's Gestapo and Blackshirts still maintain a tight control. Such reports could be part of a propaganda scheme to create overconfidence in Allied nations. Missing In Action Cleveland — Jnoob J.

I tried a settled marriage once. It didn't work. I loathe staying in one place. I'm not much good, I tell you, Nancy. Maybe I'll enlist in the Navy one of these duys ... if they'll have me." With revulsion, she recalled her arms about his neck, her voice pledging, "I wouldn't tie you down, I wouldn't mind being poor." "That's what you think. I married a rich woman, Nancy, I thought I wanted that. I liked it for n time. Then I got fed up. She made a settlement on me, to get rid. of me. A settlement, you understand? I'm the kind of a man who takes settlements from women. Look, you're leaving tomorrow and I don't want to see you again, ever. I'll forget you. And you'll forget me. Or won't you? Have I hurt you enough to make you forget me . . .?" She stumbled, remembering and Jim caught her. For a moment he held her pliant body in his arms and was aware of his accelerated pulse. "Stupid of mo," she apologized. They went down, and into the drawing room, Nancy apologetic and explanatory. "Frank, I didn't mean to leave you so long . . . I'm sorry." "Skip it," he said cheerfully. "I've been perfectly happy." He grinned, "And I've actually succeeded in getting Emily to promise to come to the club with me Saturday night." . "You're a miracle man," said Nancy, "I've coaxed and coaxed. But no result." Emily's eyes looked across the room into the eyes so like her own. She asked, anxiously, "You don't mind, do you?" and Nancy's answer, "Don't be a goof," said as plainly as words, "why should I?" Belligerently Ellen struck the gong for supper.

The president said that responsi- jilily for alleviating the suffering and misery occasioned by the German and Japanese campaigns of plunder and destruction "must be iissumcd not by any individual nation, but by all the united and as- ocialcd nations acting together." "No one country," he added, 'could or should — attempt to bear the burden of meeting the vast relief needs—either in money or in supplies." Describing as immediate and urgent the work confronting Unrra, he said the organization will have to operate at first in areas of food shortages because many of the most fertile food regions of the world are either under Axis domination or "have been stripped by the practice of the dictatorships to make themselves self-sustaining on oilier people's lands." "Additional regions," he continued, "will be blackened us the German and Japanese forces in their retreat scorch the earth behind them." The cooperating nations, working in these food shortage areas until the resumption of peaceful occupations enables and liberated .peoples once more to assume the full burden of their own support, must assure a fair distribution 'of available supplies among all of the liberated peoples and ward off death by starvation or exposure, Mr. Roosevelt said. Using the British-American assistance to civilians in French Africa as an example, he added: "We have shown that while the war lasts, whenever we help the liberated peoples with essential supplies and services, we hasten the day of the defeat of the Axis powers. "When victory comes there can certainly be no secure peace until there is a return of law and order in the oppressed countries, until the peoples of these countries have been restored to a normal, healthy, elf - sustaining existence. This means that the more quickly arid ffectually we apply measures of elief and rehabilitation, the more quickly will our own boys over- eas be able to come home." In defeat or in victory, he said, he United Nations have "never deviated from adherence . to the jasic principles of freedom, toler- •uice. independence, and security." "Tomorrow," he concluded, "the Unrra' begins its first conference and makes the first bold steps toward the practicable, workable realization of freedom from want.

To make things worse enemy dive-bombers forced (ho transports lo sea and Allied reinforcements were held up for nearly two hours.

Australian bombers carried out the second attack scoring hits on an enemy heavy cruiser and a cargo vessel.

R. A. Young, president of lhe Arkansas-Oklahoma Coal Operators Associalion, said Fuel Administrator Ickcs had not answered the as- socialion's demand for a coal price boost.

Nelson asserted that Russia's obligations to this country will be repaid in full. "The fate of civilization," said Ickes, "and the lives and well-being of future generations depend on the relations between the United States and the Soviet union. Nelson declared that Marshal Joseph Stalin told him during a recent conversation that "any obligation undertaken by this government (Russia) will be repaid in full, and not in token payments." The two officials spoke at a rally in Madison Square Garden celebrating tht 10th anniversary of resumption of diplomatic relations between the United States and Russia. Th6*y shared the rostrum with Andrei A. Gromyko, Soviet ambassador to the United States, Joseph E. Davies, former ambassador to Russia, and other speakers. Asserting that "it is of tlie'ut most importance for our"two"nations to understand each other," Ickes assailed "The Hearst press and the Patterson - McCormick newspaper Axis" which, he charged, are "deliberately fostering ill-will toward Russia."

Chcnnaull's Sky Dragons, supporting Chinese troops on the Burma front, sank a Japanese destroyer and four other vessels in the former treaty port of Amoy on Sunday and blasted the Japanese airdrome at Kiung- shan on Hainan island yesterday to destroy four parked planes and damage many others, U.S. com- muniques announced today. The raid on Kiungshan airdrome evidently caught the Japanese napping, as no opposition was reported. Direct hits were scored on two hangars and bombs were dropped on an enemy freighter spotted by the mitchclls on their homeward flight. Amoy is on a Chinese island of the same name nearly opposite the center of Formosa. The raids were carried out without loss.
