', I T HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Saturday, April 17, 1943 oss of ffafy Wouldn't Be Such Hard Blow to Hitler Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZIE Mussolini the Duce, who in his Tnorc prosperous days of the war played the boisterous part of Hitler's braying as is now said to be feverishly preparing to defend Italy against an expected Allied attack as soon as the Axis has been defeated in Tuniia. Most of the Roman Dictator's guesses thus far have been wrong, but he may be right in this case. Certainly an Allied attempt to invade Italy if possible, especially I with so many men and such large ' quantities of equipment at hand only a hundred miles from Sicily, the natural bridge between Africa and the Italian mainland. Supposing II Duce's fears are well founded, what would be the effect on the general European situation if the Allies did overrun Jtlay? Well, in the first place it might have the startling effect of forcing Hitler to make a quick and radical readjustment of his battle lines for a finish fight, to hold that part of the continent still in his hands. He probably would have to abandon the Balkans, for most of the troops in that area are Italians. This would call for a great shortening of his attenuated Russian front by retirement from his present positions. Paradoxical though it seem, such an Allied Victory might have the effect of lengthening the war some ;what Hitler, dug - in on favorable lines and conserving his resources might be a more formidable enemy for a time than he is with his energy so widely spread as now. So far as the loss of Italy itself is concerned, the fuehrer wouldn't be much worse off than he is at present, since his hold on the Mediterranean already is broken. In deed, he might be a gainer in that he no longer would have to supply the Italians with coal and oil. He would, of course, lose the fruits and vegetables which 'he is getting from his ally, and would be deprived of any further Italian labor. In the matter of defense, the Alps along the Italo - German border provide a well - nigh impassable barrier. , The loss of the Balkans would be a greater blow to Hitler than that of. Italy. This wouldn't,have been true six months ago, before Montgomery cracked Rommel's line at El Alamein and started the great route which led to Tunisia, but it would be true with Africa lost to the'Axis. In abandoning the Balkans Hitler would open the road for an,Allied invasion of the peninsula, with the eager help of Greece, Albania and at least a goodly part of Yugoslavia. He also would sacrific considerable resources, especially food stuffs and Rumanian oil. He would lose the Balkan troops which have been fighting for him against the Russians. Of coure, the reopening of the Mediterranean shipping lanes would enable the United States and Britian to pour aid into Russia through the Dardanelles and Black Sea, assuming that Turkey agreed. The Red position also would be vastly improved by the recovery of vital jailway which are now in German hands. However, despite the Allied gains which would result from an invasion of Italy, the feeling is wide- spared among military men that the war s likely to drag along until the United Nations put an army ashore in western France. Hitler's forces must be got between two fronts and ground to pieces. Trying to beat him by attacking on one front likely would be a long - drawn - out job. O Seven Sowings Needed for All-Summer Salad Leaves Green, leafy vegelables supply your family with Vitamin A and calcium, the vitamin and mineral which are expected to be scarcest in war time rationing. The green leafy vegetables include the leaf crops which are served uncooked in salads. If you like bowl salads, you can serve one at least once a day without complaint. Many leaves can be used for bowl salad, including all the greens which are also cooked. But our chief reliance will probably be on leaf lettuce and endive, especially the form known as escarollc, or broad leaved endive. How can one or the other of these fine vegetables be made available for bowl salad from early summer until killing frosts arrive in the fall? Leaf lettuce will be large enough to use in 30 days from sowing, and can be sown April 15, let us assume. The weather will determine the exact date. If we sow a twenty foot row April 15, it will produce daily salads for a family -of four from May 15 to June 4, and a second 20 foot row sown about May 5, will be ready to use June 5 and provide lettuce until June 25. A third sowing of the same size, if made May 25, will be ready a. month later and will probably give you the last harvest of lettuce before midsummer heat begins to make this crop go to seed. During the hot weather we must depend on escarolle, which takes 90 days to mature. By sowing a row April 15, at the same time as the first lettuce sowing, we may have it ready July 15 when trouble with lettuce usually begins. Two 20-foot sowings of endive, made twenty days apart, will provide you with daily salad leaves until August 24. In the meanwhile you will have sown as a succession crop to peas, turnips, beans, or carrots which have been used up in June, another row of leaf lettuce and another of endive. The lettuce should be ready late in August, and it will be fol- The New Broad Leaf Endive Is a Fine Summer Salad lowed by the escarollc in the fall, when it is most delicious. This will complete your 120 days or more of green salad leaves, harvested from your garden continuously, in fine quality and abundant supply., This, you will note, takes seven separate sowings, spaced at carefully estimated intervals, and requires that 140 feet of garden space be devoted to these two vegetables. Obviously if you sow all 140 feet at once early in the spring, as may be done, in poorly planned gardens, you will have a superabundance of green leaves in the early summer, and do without the rest of the season. It is impossible to give any gardener a complete pattern of his planting schedule; he must figure it out himself, and it must be closely related to his actual family needs. Market Report ST.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York, April 17 — ITP) —Buy ers nibbled at selected oils, rails and specialties in today's stock market but further lightening of commitment retarded many leaders elsewhere. It was one of the slowest sessions of the year to date, the two hour volume running to around 400,000 shares compared with better than a million last Saturday. The list got off to a fairly steady start and, while minor fractional advances were well distributed near the close, minus marks were plentiful. Der Furhrer No Longer Army Chief New York, April 16 —(/P>—Adolf Hitler still pursues his vocation as a general" but apparently no longer is to be referred to as su preme commander of the armed forces, Berlin broadcasts recorded by the Federal Communications Commission indicated today. Moreover, propaganda Minister Goebbels declared in his current writing in the magazine Das Reich that "one must grant the govern- men ihe right to niake mistakes." A Berlin broadcast, recorded by the Associated Press, quoted Goebbels as saying "the German government did not forsee all that has happened in the past few years and nobody can foretell the course of any war." In the same magazine, Col. Walter Scherff of the German general staff wrote that "the crisis through which we have passed left the fuehrer's vocation" as a general unchanged. Hitler "was not a person of icy calm" at times during the winter, the colonel added. A later broadcast started with "the fuehrer and supreme commander of the armed forces has awarded -- ." A correction was issued an hour later by the official news agency, DNB, saying; "The item to begin the words, 'The Fuehrer has awarded.' The words "and supreme commander of the armed forces' are cancelled. Goebbels writing in Dash Reich had this comment; "In 1918 the greatest disaster of the German people was that they gave themselves up. If Germany became weak for a second time, it would mean that Germany is going down. We cannot go back and we cannot even move out of the way. The government is not able to look into the future." Joe Engel Not to Pitch Sunday Against Lookouts By PHIL LAKRE Atluntn, April 17 — ( f T) —The customers at Chattanooga must have sighed mightily in relief today when they learned that Joe Engcl wouldn't pitch for Knoxville in the Smokies' season opener at Chattanooga Frdiay. To the faithful who have seen about everything from baseball to circuses in President Joe's Chattanooga ball park, Engel pitching against his own crew would be nothing less tha n mutiny. But for a time, Manager Buddy Lewis and Secretary Edgar Allen of Kno.x- viile had a trap set for the voluble Joe in event their pitching staff dissolved. "We were hardest hit on the mound," explained Allen, "but we would have opened the season against Chattanooga's Lookouts there if we had had to sign their Marse Joe Engel as a flingcr." That was before the veteran Dick Coffman signed for another season with the Smokies. Manager Lewis today announced he's going to throw his mound ace at the Lookouts in an effort to start the season with a win. Other clubs, meanwhile prepared to test their process with practice tilts against army teams. Today's schedule has Camp Forrest, Tenn.. at Chattanooga, nncl Camp Wheeler, Ga., at Atlanta. Sunday, Chattanooga again meets Camp Forrest, New Orleans takes on the New Orleans naval air base team, Memphis mixes with Little Rock and Camp Wheeler plays a return engagement at Atlanta. Manager Al Leitz and his crackers have bocn setting a rapid pace in warmup games, are copping their sixth win in seven starts with an 8 4 verdict over Piedmont college. Manager Johnny Riddle was behind tho platter for the first time this season as his Birmingham Barons clubbed out a 9 - 2 victory over the Birmingham Air Base. Cheer dispelled some of the gloom nt Nashville's practice camp when Charley Gassaway took his first turn on the mound since he sprained an ankle more than a week ago and held the Yannigans to one bingle as the regulars won an intra squad game, 10 - 0. At Memphis, Homer Spragins, big Mississippi state fircballcr, looked impressive in an abbreviated camp game and Manager Doc Prothro said he might use the rookie in Sunday's exhibition tilt against Little Rock. At Chattanooga problem is bothering Sparky Olson these days. Zclig Fruman, local prospect, has looked good at bat but hasn't measured up in fielding, and Lcroy Brock, Lafayette, Ga., rookie, is the best bet for a starting bid.

House Seeks Compromise on Tax Plan Washington, April 1G —(/P)— House Republican leaders supporting Jie skip-a - tax - year plan Democrats opposing it launched a joint effort today, under the leadership of Speaker Ray burn (D Tex.) 10 reach a compromise on pay - as - you - go income lax legislation. The oi-partisan effort to settle the embattled issue developed at a morning conference in Rayborn's office attended by House Republican Leader Martin of Massachusetts, Democratic Leader McCormack of Massachusetts, Chairman Doughton (D - NO and the memoer of the House Ways and Means committee. Rayburn said afterward: "We're going to try to forget the Ruml plan (first to embody the skip - a - year - idea; and a 1 1 other plans, and then sit down and try to work out something that will be acceptable to all concerned." Martin told newspapermen, "We had a little conference to see if it were possible to reach a compromise." It is expected that any compromise so reached would embrace a 20 per cent withholding levy against the taxable portions of pay envelopes and salary checks. This would not be an additional lax but a means of making weekly, semi - monthly or monthly deduc tions from earnings against taxes as now computed. If the parties can agree the withholding levy probably would become effective July 1. A form of the Ruml plan was defeated in the House two weeks ago by a ^15 to 1113 vote with Republicans lined up for and Demochals against it. in one of the most spectacular House party fights in recent nistory. Republicans have been maneuvering to bring the skip - a - year proposal to another vote, claiming sufficient new strength to pass it. But the Ways and Means committee, dominated by Democrats, has refused to send another pay - as- you - go bill to the House floor until it disposes of a measure to extend reciprocal trade agree- menl iinolhcr three years.

The speaker recalled the hislory of the movement, originating with the first Child Welfare Conference called in 1909 by President Theodore Roosevelt, anci every 10 years since then—in 1919 by Woodrow Wilson, in 1930 by Herbert Hoover, and in 1940 by Franklin D.
