HOPE SfAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Thursday, April 1, 1943 ombers Expected to Prepare Way for an Invasion Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment ; Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZIE * Spring's terrible mud and slush which arc torturing the battleline in Russia probably are bad news v for the unfortunate troops who have to struggle through them, but , they're good news for the Allied 'cause as a whole. ' This is once when we can do a lot of powerful .hoping that spring ' will play the laggard in Eastern , Europe and delay the entrance of summer the season of all out offensives. The point is that the Anglo American Allies need a change to get set to deliver a powerful > blow against Hitler some•„ where in Western Europe by- the ' time the good weather makes it .possible nor him to inaugurate another great drive against the Red Army. ilt would be unsafe to permit the , Nazi Fuehrer to employ all this ", striking power on the eastern front * again. His position is becoming -, increasingly difficult and he is s likely to try some daring gamble this summer to extricate himself. , Freedom from pressure on the west would be an invitation to him to try another smash at the Bolshevists i Last year the all highest started > his successful Crimean drive on '" May 12. A month latter his terrific offensive against the Caucasus was in full swing. This is to say that the Allies ' have maybe two months in which ;,' to finish off Tunisia and pull up -, their socks for another big show. Their offensive should go down the ways by June first if they are to •', be in position to deal with the fast moving Nazis. There are, as pointed out in yesterday's column, several possible offensives, but there's only one * which, if successful, could force r <the Hitlerian war to a speedy conclusion — that is the invasion of ' France across the English channel. <• Th'e Russians continue to call for f ' this second front in the west the i latest appeal being from Alexander Troyanovsky, former Soviet am- 1 bassador to the United. ,, Well, of course that's easier said than done, but the attempt pre- i^umably will ze made if the Allies have the necessary equipment for sifch a colossal undertaking. If we can't have that, 'then we' may get an invasion of the Balkans. Anyway, so far as one can see e^erything is being done which Liberator's Deadly Stingers Market Report Here's a hun's-eye view of a B-24 Liberator bomber's movable tail turret, where twin ,50-caliber machine guns are mounted to fight off attack from the rear.

We are speeding up the Tunisian battle so as to release men and equipment, and free the shipping lanes of the Mediterranean. We are giving Germany and occupied territories an awful raking from the air. That knocking out of Hitler's main industries, military bases and lines of communication in Western Europe by heavy bombing is an essential preliminary to invasion. When I was in England last October I was told in informed quarters that if the Anglo - American bomber force could be trebled — not an excessive figure at all— the job could be completed by this spring. The task is unfinished, and this probably means that the necessary bomber haven't been available. However, the British - American team has been getting ahead with the business recently. Along with this we .get the good word from London that informed observers expected an immediate expansion of the United States air service to follow-Major General Ira C. Eaker's statement that the experimental phase of daylight precision bombing had be'etr passed' successfully. England Wok: for^a'sWarm of big bombers from across the Atlantic. If this expansion materializes, we have a right to expect that the combined air - forces will have time in the next couple of months to reduce the Nazis sufficiently to permit of invasion. The good bombing weather is coming on. What we need is the bombers. Sixty - three per cent of all men's neckties sold in the U.S. are bought by women. There are only 300 miles serviceable motor roads in becia, and no railway. Ceiling Prices Set on Used Trucks, Buses Washington. March 31 f/P) — In an effort to chop down war-in flated prices, the Office of Price Administration today decreed mex- imum prices for used trucks, ambulances, buses and other used commercial motor vehicles. In some cases the ceiling prices were only a fraction of current market quotations. The new regulations, effective April 26. sets the top legal price of any of these vehicles at a percentage of its original delivered price depending on age and partly on whether the vehicle has been reconditioned, the per cent ages range from 20 to 97 of "new cost." These percentages, OPA said, are "expected to halt the activities of speulators which have resulted in some instances in prices which are 200 per cent or more over the normal value of the used truck." Exempted frem the order are ordinary passenger automobiles, taxicabs, station wagons and farm tractors. However, offcials said they-were studying the possibility of similar action on these vehicles.
