Virtually the whole arc is in vio- 'lent eruption. The Allies are hit • 'ting it from end to end, thereby c compelling the enemy to defend himself in many places at once. ^British, American and French ;'forces are stabbing violently into 1 the Axis defenses in five main op' erations — chiefly astride strategic i nhighways running through the mountain fastnesses to the coastal plain beyond — and have been making progress in all sectors. ; though slowly and with bloody toll. These five operations — which actually are subdivided so that nearly a dozen thrusts are being made — are like the fingers and thumb of a hand which is squeezing a toy balloon. Sooner or later one of those fingers will sink deep enough to explode the bal,loon. Just so, sooner or later one of the attacking forces will break through and open up a route to the coastal plain. Over that route will -pour our mechanized forces, and the end of the "great battle will be in sight. ^Indeed, the Algeirs radio today -reports that French forces have broken through the mountains guarding the Tunis plain in t h e neighborhood of Pont Du F a h s near the southern end of the line ^This is the unit which yesterday • was credited with capturing th importance heights of Djebel Man sour. Details are lacking to enable us-to judge just what has sap pened in this sector. On the far northern end of th line we have the French, who ar driving eastward along the coas towards Bizerte.

They are astride the highly important Sedjenane-Mateur highway and railway, and have captured several enemy hills in an advance of several miles, Below the American Corps is the British First Army, hammering away on either side of Medjez - El- Bab which they hold and which is center of several highways, as well f, as a railway. Below them are the 5 French operating in the Djebel Mansour sector. Then 'of course 'clear down in the southwest, at the end of the line, is the one and only Montgomery with his Axis- busting Eighth Army which is thrusting northward along both the coastal road and the highway to JJaghouan. ' The American and British air forces continue to pile a mighty lot of straws on the Axis camel's back. They are driving the enemy out of the air, blasting the communications between his bases and his • mountain forces, destroying the supply depots themselves, and going a long way towards isolating Jiim from continental aid. But the air fleets are doing more than that. They are the eyes of our ground forces which otherwise Would have to push more or less i 'blindly in among the Axis moun- | tain defenses. Naturally there's a I lot that can't be seen from a j plane over such concealed position j but a pilot can see more than can the chap on the ground.

Certainly the loss of his leadership would be felt, for he inspired his men.

Russia Breaks With Poles in Exile Moscow, April 2G — (/P)— Soviet Russia severed relations with thc Polish government in exile yesterday, accusing it ot being in league with the Germans in carrying out n "hostile campaign" against thc Soviet union in connection German charges that the Russians hud killed 10,000 Polish officers near Smolensk. Foreign Commissar Mololov handed thc T'olish ambassador a bitter note, denouncing the Polish government, the News Agency Tuss reported. It charged the Poles with carrying on a hostile campaign against the Soviet Union along the same lines as the recent German p r o p a g a n d a. accusing thc Russians of murdering 10,500 Polish officers near Smolensk. The Russian note flatly charged the Germans had killed the Polish officers. "The Polish government. to please Hitler's tyranny, deals u treacherous blow to go Soviet Union," Molotov's note said, "the Soviet government is aware that this hostile campaign against the Soviet Union was undertaken by the Polish government in order to exert pressure for thc purpose of wresting from it the territorila concessions at the expense of thc interests of the Soviet Ukraine, Soviet Byelo - Russia and Soviet Lithuania. "All these circumstances compel the Soviet government to recognize that the government of Poland, having slid to thc path of accord with Hitler's government, actually have discontinued Allied relations with the U.S.S.R. and adopted a hostile attitude toward ne Soviet Union. On the strength f all above, the Soviet govern- nent has decided to sever relations vith the Polish government. 'Please accept, Mr. Ambassa- r, assurancs of my high esteem. VIolotov." The note said the Russian government "considers the recent behav- or of the Polish government as entirely abnormal and violating all regulations and standards of rela- :ions." The note cited that thc Germans lad launched a "slanderous campaign in connection with the murder of Polish offciers which they NEW YORK COTTON New York, April 26 f/Pi— An nounccment that the C.C.C. woulc stabilize raw cotton at 21.38 cent a pound for 15-16 inch middling de pressed futures in early trade to day, but markets rallied on lat< trade price fixing.

War-Stricken Areas Observe Easter Sunday By The Associated Press The aean "He Is Risen, He Is Risen," echoed thrtiogh a war-torn world yesterday as IracfTtional Easter observances spread their panoply of worship for the resurrected Christ from Moscow to Jerusalem, from New York to London. Even the bombers which have made a mock of peace for the men and women and children behind the fighting lines were relatively quiet as a 24-hour period passed without major sorties in the European theater, though the struggle in North Africa went on with unabated intensity and the great battle of Russia killed its hundreds without regard to the date. Moscow's 2G open churches were jammed with crowds the like of which has not been se n since the revolution and worshippers literally had their clothes torn in the crush. Eddy Gilmore, Associated Press correspondent at Moscow, reported churches were packed so "the worshippers did not have room to cross themselves." London saw a typically American observance of the Eastertide with a dawn service for America's armed men in Hde Park, The lovely church bells of the British Isles rang for only the third time since the fill of France, when their sounding was reserved to signal the expected Axis invasion of the British homeland. Methodist Bishop Adna W. Leon ard of Washington, D. C., preached a simple sermon of resurrection in an improvised pulpit in the park and went on to hold service for American fighting men at an air base. Bishop Leonard has been visiting American troops as the representative of 31 Protestant dcnominaHions. Pope Pius II celebrated mass in Rome in the presence of the diplomatic corps, but did not make an expected world - wide broadcast. Spellman said Allied victory in the war "is not synonymous with peace" because "hatreds have multiplied and have become deep and bitter." "Yet Easter day should not and must not pass without hope," he said, "and hope must be based on faith, supernatural faith. Faith and hope beget charity, and charity means peace." Americans thronged to churches throughout the land, and the pa- Art Inspires Soldiers On Alaska Highway Seattle (If)— Now it's urt for the Army. Artists, great and small, arc painting pictures to hang in the barracks and headquarters ot the men who maintain the 1,030-mile international highway to Alaska. Lieut. Kichurd L. Neubcrgcr, aide to tin; Northwest Service Command commander, Brig. Gen. James A. O'Connor, said the painting were being received at the Northland post from professionals and um- itcurs. "The pictures," he said, "will help to brighten the living iiea'Uiuartcrs for the men assigned ;o one of the most lonely wilder- lessee on the continent." 4 U. S. Planes Shoot Down 5 Jap Aircraft Washington, April 26 — (/I'j — Four American fighter planes engaged 10 enemy bombers and 20 Zeros oft Guadalcanal island, the navy reported today, and shot down five of the Japanese fighters. T\vo of the United States planes failed to return after the aerial battle fought 95 miles northwest ot Lunga point on Guadalcanal in the Solomons. The text of the Navy com- munique, number 356: "South Pacific: (All dates arc cast longitude(. "1.

The Poles were accused of at once taking up the campaign. "Far from offering a rebuff to the vile Fascist slander ot the U.S.S.R., the Polish government did not even find it necessary to address the Soviet government with an inquiry of explanation on this subject," the note said. Grieg's Music Used As Quisling's March Stockholm (/?) — Vidkum Quisling at last has found a "Fuehrer March" in imitation of Hitler. Various composers tried to produce a march which would satisfy Quisling when played as he strode into rallies, party meetings or re- reptions. All failed. Nasjonal Sarnling, Quisling's party, finally decided to revert to a master,s work and selected Edvard Grieg's famous "Sigurd Jor- saltar" as Quisling's Fuehrer March." At the same time an order was issued forbidding anyone ode of 750,000 in their finery along New York City's Fifth Avenue was said by police to be the largest Easter outpouring in history. Uniforms, khaki and blue, on men and women, toned down the high color note of this traditional preview of spring fashion. Gambling thpir navigation skill for a chance to slow up construction of a Japanese air base in the Aleutians, American fliers have resumed their bombing raids on enemy installations at Kiska. For two days the United States pilots apparently were earthbound because of fog and storms which in the North Pacific can roar up into plane - crushing blasts in a matter of minutes, but yesterday the Navy disclosed the raids have started again. Despite storms, bombers a n d fighters took off Saturday to roar down ori the Rocky Island near the end of the Aleutians chain, loosing explosives and strafing enemy positions with machine gun fire. The weather was so bad, however, the pilots were unable to observe results. Earlier after two days had passed without reports of assaults on Kiska, which had been bombdd 113 times since April 1, it was assumed here the enemy was able to make 4B hours of progress in his dodged construction o£ an air- Fight Seasoned Americans Trap Germans By HAROLD V. BOYLE With American. Forces in Northern Tunisia, April 24 (Delayed) — (If)— Two companies ot German infantry trapped on a hill northeast of TJcja were captured or killed to the last man today after a pounding by American artillery which one prisoner said was the heaviest he hnd ever undergone in seven years service with the German army on all fronts, Approximally 200 Nazi soldiers who were caught on the hill during a rapid advance by the Americans yesterday obeyed to the letter a recent order by Col. Gen. Jurgcn Von Arnim to "hold to the last man— you cannot go back any more." Hill No. 350 was captured by the Doughboys in hnnd-to - hand combat. Not one soldier escaped. Those taken prisoner were found to be members of a Marsch. or j replacement, battalion, — just one of many signs of Hitler's manpower shortage. Artillery batteries which gave the weary Axis soldiers no rest were one of the biggest factors in the continuing American advance, which captured three more hills in the face of heavy fire. Our infantry pushed slowly through the mountains west of Mutcur with the help of mule puck trains. Farther north in the Sedjenanc area progress was made by the French African Corps, which won the praise of American officers. In leapfrog Indies, wherein fresh units pushed forward to take new positions while shock detachments rested and consolidated, the French moved steadily forward through rugger! country. The corps is made up ot volunteers not covered by the general mobilization order. "They have been doing a swell job," said an American staff officer. "Most of these men arc without any military experience and some of them are over 50 years Helps Build Plane 1 Then Trains In It La Junta, Colo. I/I') —LI. Alvin O.

April 20 — f/Ti break in diplomatic relations A be tween the United Slates and F i n- land appeared imminent today — perhaps only a matter of hours— as advices from Helsinki indicated little possibility of a change in Finnish foreign policy which might ease the situation. While the Finnish public w a s reported deeply distributed by the prospect of a break, Finland's official position was summed up tersely by a source close to the government with these words: "The Americans cannot expect us to tie a noose around our own necks." The statement was an obvious reference to American desires that Finland settled her differences with Russia, break her tics with Germany and withdraw from the port. to play "Sigurd Jorsalfur' in Quisling's presence. except Flashes of Life GOP Group to Study Post War Program Washington, April 26—f/P)—House Republicans stole a march on Capitol Hill postwar planners today with creation of a 33 - man committee to study a wide range of domestic issues expected to be in the forefront after the war. At the same time, through Republican Leader Joseph W. Marin, Jr., of Massachusetts, thc invigorated minority served notice it expects to make its voice heard in consideration of matters that "will jest promote a better life for the Jeople of America."

Coupled with thc greatest margin ot Allied superiority over the enemy air force of the entire North African campaign was a steady whittling down of German armored strength. • The Germans have made no tank attacks along the New American front and only a few Nuv.i armored vehicles have been sighted. Most of those remaining to Von Arnim were believed to be concentrated further south in the hope of staving off an Allied break-through to the plains west of Tunis — ideal tank country. To overcome their artillery deficiency thc Germans have been forced to resort to roving "Gypsy" batteries. They fire a few rounds and then move quickly lo a new position to avoid being blasted by counter-artillery fire. Khaki - clad douchboys made their presence in Northern Tunisia known yesterday by smashing deeply through German positions in two salients. One branch of thc two-pronged Ajnerican advance moved forward six miles from its jumping' off place, approximately 20 miles west ot Matcur. Encm resistance was comparatively light. Further south, starting from :i point about 15 miles northeast of Bjcu, another American infantry unit upheld its name for bulldog valor by marching seven miles against heavy mortar and smal' arms fire in thc toughest kind ol opposition and the roughest kind ol fighting country. By nightfall they had bagged a number of German prisoners, some of whom were from units in which the Nazis had pressed civil criminals and political suspects into service.
