STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, Morcli_22, 1j>43 omme/ in Tough Spot As British 8fh Army Attacks Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment ini Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWlTT MacKENZIE Britain's prime minister gave us i;\the official news we had been anxiously awaited and injected tChurchillian drama into the Tunis- 7-ian crisis last evening with his impressively measured announceten: J' "I have just received a message f from General Montgomery that the 4 -Eighth Army is on the move, and ''< he is satisfied with the progress." '/.fThus we have what appears to *oe caifirmation that the Allied of- j tensive to oust the Axis from Af- ricaactually was begun.. It takes ,the like of a Churchill "to handle * i>ig' news with such telling effect ;—and it takes a Montgomery to send such a message of repressed Assurance. ^Confidence is one of the British commander's outstanding characteristics. He has unlimited faith in himself, and that inspires in his ( ihen the morale which has carried •' them to their sensational victories. F I talked with him in the Liban , desert just before he launched the '" terrific offensive which flung the , already badly mauled Rommel • back from El Agheila to his present position behind the powerful 'Mareth line of fortifications. Then as now Montgomery was quietly .- sure of himself and of his men. , So he is officially on the move again, after a heavy artillry bom- bardmnt of the Mareth positions and an exploratory stab at the German left flank on the sea. And up to the northwest in the Gafsa sector, on the other side of Rommel, ^ our own hard - hitting General Pat'" ton's Yankee troops have been con'^ solidating positions which they ;" reached through mud and rain. They seemed to be headed for the not distant coast, in an effort to cut Rommel off so that he will have to fight Montgomery. on the south and Patton on the north at the same time. Marshal Rommel is in a nasty spot and it will take all his tatic- calskill— and its great—to extricate himself. He may try to stand Montgomery off on the Mareth line and attack Patton in an effect to remove the America >threat to his rear. His alternative would seem to be to take to his Jieels again and try to join upwith Nazi General Von Arnim in the north before Patton can reach the coast and thus sever the Axis communications. It will be fascinating to see Montgomery go to work on that Mareth Ene. At the week-end I ran across some notes I made in Cairo after }ie smashed Rommel's line at El Alamein and started the historic Axis rout which finally wound up in Tunisia. My memo concerned the possible lessons to be drawn from the victorious tactics of the Eighth Army commander, and 1 had jotted down the following operations: If you can't outflank, you must break through the enemy's strong point in his line and then keep exploiting weak spots in the break. Once you get behind the enemy you can smash him. These are modern tactics. They were used first by the Germans against the Poles, and again in France, The attack is stronger than the defense. The reason is motive power and radio communciation. The enemy must defend his whole front. The attack is a surprise concentration on a narrow front, after indication has been given of an attack on a wide front. At the last moment there is a quick change by radio. When you break a hole in a brick wall you hit one small spot. Then you hit it again — and shake the bar back and forth. Finally the wall breaks. Well, so much for previous tactics. We shall see what Montgomery can do now. He will use every ounce of strength he can muster, for his wholecampaign is aimed "Compact DE's Help Hit the Subs often is referred to as a killer, and in a sense that is true.

They consider that the recent total mobilization of German labor may have been designed to create a huge reservoir of workers and may not have been necessitated by an acute shortage or a sharp decline of industrial output. The experts said it was difficult to estimate the feelings of the average German, much less the morale of the whole population since the tide of war changed direction. But they declared Dr. Paul 'Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda, had thoroughly scared the people with the horrifying picture he has drawn of the Russians. "He's turned defeats into a powerful fear weapon," they observed.

It's Direct For a few cents you can put an ad in the HOPE STAR classified section and you'll find all the buyers you're seeking to sell your merchandise. The classified is a clearing-house of opportunities. HOPE STAR The most important purpose to accomplish in a Victory garden plan is to provide fresh vegetables all season long; not an overabundant supply in the early summer, followed by scarcity the rest of the summer and fall. Some crops, like Swiss chard, will remain in good condition all season and only one sowing need be made to produce a constant supply. On the other hand early radishes mature in about three weeks and in another week are too pithy to eat. If you sow more than a week's supply at one time, the rest will be wasted. This applies to all short season crops. Your sowing must be limited to the amount you can use during the period of good harvest. How can this amount be figured? The accompanying table lists these short-season crops. Column 2 gives the space in a garden row required to produce sufficient to make one serving to a family of four; column 1, the time which the harvest from one sowing will last. To determine the longest row of one vegetable to sow at a time, estimate the number of times your family will eat it during the period of harvest given in column 1. Multiply this by the number of feet in I the garden row required for one serving, as given in column 2. Take for example, beets. The period of best harvest from one planting is six weeks. How often will you serve beets in that period? Remember, three vegetable dishes a day should be the minimum nex summer, which means 21 family servings a week. Three servings a week, then, will be almost th minimum for any vegetable. A this rate, in six weeks you will nee< J8 servings of beets. Multiply, Plan All-Summer Harvest of These Short Season Vegetables In Column 1 is given the time during which the harvest from one sowing remains in top condition. In Column 2, the space in the garden row required to serve a family of four one meal. These figures are approximate, since gardening cannot be a precision job; but use them as a guide with bisoad tolerances, and they will help you avoid serious waste, and scarcity as well. Crop Beans, snap Beets Carrots Cucumbers Endive Lettuce Kohlrabi Turnips Spinach Sweet Corn Onion Sets Peas Radish, early summer winter Column 1 4 weeks 6 weeks 8 weeks 4 weeks 6 weeks 6 weeks 3 weeks 2 weeks 2 weeks 10 days 4 weeks 2 weeks 1 week 2 weeks 6 weeks Column 2 1 foot 1 foot 2 feet 2 feet 1 foot 1 foot 2 feet V/i feet 3 feet 4 feet 1 foot 3 feet 1 foot 1 foot 1 foot by one foot, the space in the row needed for one family serving, and you have eighteen, the maximum row that you should sow at one time. To allow for guests, and possible mishaps which may reduce your crop, sow twenty feet. And make two or three sowings, spaced about like this: Seven weeks between the first and second, five weeks between the second and third, because the second sowing will grow faster than the first and the third slower. Go right through the list of the short-season vegetables with this kind of calculation. Never sow at one time more than the amount you can use while the crop is at its best. Space your succession sow- ngs far enough apart so that two larvests will not overlap too much, _iving you a wasteful surplus, followed by scarcity. An hour or two spent in figuring this out may save you days of misdirected labor in growing crops you cannot use when they mature. Remember in using the table, that gardening is not a precision operation. Do not try to cut the corners too closely. If your soil is not rich, give a little more space than the tables call for, and make liberal allowances for extra food for friends and guests. Note also that food for putting up to use next winter must be figured in addition to the summer's supply for the family table. By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER Washington, March 22 — (IP)— The critical importance of the battle of the Atlantic lies in this fact; a single well-aimed U-boat torpedo may accomplish at one stroke the destructive work of thousands of German soldiers or scores of German planes. • It may blow up a tanker cargo of gasoline needed to fuel our bombers in Tunisia. It may sink a shipload of ammunition destined for the invasion stores accumulating in England. It may plunge to the bottom of the ocean a ship full of tanks, guns, food and clothing which cost mil- ions of dollars and manhours to produce and are urgently required for operations in Russia. It may, in a word, destroy combat equipment which would otherwise be used in blasting out a victory in Europe this, year or next. It follows that it the Germans can fire enough well-aimed torpedoes and destroy enough of this equipment in the months ahead they probably won't have to worry about a United Nations victory in Europe this year or next. That is the reason why it has become usual in recent weeks for British and American leaders to harp so much on the menace of the U-boat. They know full well that unless they can smash the U- boat, they cannot smash Hitler in "Europe. Not since this time last year has there been such a hue and cry about what our enemies might be able to do to us. Then the Japanese were driving their South China sea campaign to a successful conclusion and the clamor arose because (1) we were being defeated and (2) we simply did not have the men, planes and ships to turn that defeat into victory. Too little and too late" was the phrase used to describe the Allied predicament in the first months of war in the Pacific. "Too little and loo late" may well be the explanation for what happens in the Atlantic if we lose the round now opening with the U-boats. Among navy men intimately familiar with the Atlantic situation there is no doubt that eventually the U-boat will be defeated. British statements seem to reflect the same long-range confidence. The important questions are: how long will it take? Can it be done this spring and summer? The answers to those questions depend on several factors which cannot be accurately determined until the war is over. One is the si/.e of the Nazi submarine fleet. Another is the strength of the British-American anti-submarine fleet of destroyers, destroyer escorts, auxiliary aircraft carriers and such submarine chaser boats as are capable of high seas operations. Secretary Knox recently put the U-boat total at about 300 craft. This squares with the fact that in February and early March there were slightly more than 100 actually prowling the Atlantic. The formula is that of the total available fleet about one-third may be inop- eation at any one time. Other authorities regard the secretary's estimate as extremely conservative aiid they will all agree that the Germans have been building' subs much faster than they havr- been losing them. Thus their fleet ready for combat or training for combat may be nearer GOO than 300. If they stretched the one-third formula they might be able ut least to double their force on combat duty in the Atlantic at any one time. 1,400 Italians' (Continued From Page One) and medium bombers of the western desert air force attacked objectives in the Mareth and Kcttanc areas, while bombers of the Tunisian air force attacked some enemy air fields," the communique said.

Heavy, medium and light bombers of the Northwest African nil- force contributed to the pounding of the air fields upon which Rommel depends for both acrinl support and many of his supplies.
