State Finishes Evidence in Welsh Murder Rationing Book No. 3 to Be Issued Soon what the impending conflict means — death or surrender — for there is little hope for the escape of any •great >uimber of the Rommelites by sen or air. The early indications are that Hitler has ordered Rommel to make a stand. The. Nazi propaganda department seems to be preparing the folk at home to see their boys sacrificed on the altar of the fuehrer's paranoic ambition to conquer tne world. They are told that there will be no Dunkerque — no attempt to remove the troops by sea. Well and good, but who guarantees ihat the 200.000 (more or less) Axis troops will stand up to any such order. The feeling isn't good between the Italians and the Germans, and the Duce's men are especially sort of being made the goats for rear guard defense jobs recently. Then we have this aspect: —Not long ago while abroad I was talking with one of the most famous of the Allied generals, and he said to me: "The Germans are fine soldiers, but there is a time, I believe, when they crack up." Now we have no reason to say that a Greman soldier wouldn't defend his home and hearth to the death, or that he is not brave. During ;he last war I encountered instances of mass "suicide" of German troop under orders. However, Tunisia isn't the fatherland or yet Italy. Many unprejudiced rnili- tary expertp hold that ^the German clacks when he reaches the point where he can see that there's no hope of holding out. The chances are there will be a | terrific battle — and we must be prepared for heavy Allied casualties — until the Axis forces finally realize that there's no chance of their being evacuated. Then one would expect surrender, rather than iight to a finish. Nazi General Von Arnim, who has been in command in the Tunis- Bizerte area until Rommel raced in, has had long months in which to prepare strong defenses for the contingency which now has arrived. The chances are that he also has considerable military supplies action. GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago.

Her 28 year - old son watched his mother ''from the defense table.

It was a swiftly reached climax that Drought Mrs. Welsh to the stand as the first defense witness. Judge Albeet, A. Ridge quickly overruled a defense demurrer to instruct the jury for acquittal. Washington, April 15 — (IP) — OPA officials disclosed today that ration book No. 3 will be issued soon, probably late in July, but will be used primarily for shoes, sugar and coffee as soon a book No. 1 runs out of stamp. The No. 3 volume issue also may l'-e used lo provide a couple more months of canned goods and meal stamps, since it was designed to handle both point and unit system nf rationing. Officials said they had no inten tion of using the No. 3 book to ration any new commodities. but could, make no promises because if the theoretic;!! possibilities of special emergencies. Books 4, and C are in the design stage, so No. 3 probably would not bc needed for new rationing if any did become necesary. Because of their plan lo use No. 3 book only as a replacement. OPA also is trying to figure some easy way of distributing it, and odds today are that it will bc handled by mail.
