GRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, April 28 (fl'i— Reports of large overnight flour purchases by a leading southwest chain baker and inquiries for flour by the food distribution administration spurred an upturn in wheat prices today. The FDA was asking for 100.000 sacks of flour, equivalent to fiO.OOO barrels. Rye advanced with the bread cereal, local traders doing considerable buying. Good absorption of May rye contracts had a firming influence on other deliveries. Oats lagged somewhat, the May contract running into pressure which at one time pushed it down 1-2 cent. Good support appeared at that level.

In fact supply and transport in all categories present unsual difficulties. One of the most important lessons of the African show is that the Allies are winning through a process of annihilation of the Axis forces and destruction of their equipment. By annihilation I mean putting 'the enemy completely out of action. There could be no end to the show so long as General Montgomery and his British Eighth Army were playing fox ad hounds with Rommel about the ue"sert. That's what the general strained every nerve to crowd the elusive Nazi into a corner and make him fight. Men who run away live to fight another day. The only beaten ones are the dead, badly wounded and captured. We have "annihilated" a quarter of the Axis forces in Tunisia. We shall liave achieved victory when we have every last German and Italian actually in our hands, or under the Tunisian sands. That is the only way batltes can be won. When we've finsihed wilh Afrcia we shall have to start applying that same cold - blooded, hard-as- nails truism to Herr Hitler on the continent. The most powerful weapon he has left is his army. That army must be cornered and annihilated, and no man will be in position to guess the end of the war until Allied armies actually invade Western Europe in force and corner the fuehrer, just as he has been cornerd in Tunisia. Authoritativ British circles recently estimated the German army at between 7,500,000 and 8,000,000. Presumably that would include not only fighting men but all the services. It isn't as good as the fighting machine with which he started the 'war, because he is estimated to have lost at least 5,000,000 and they representd many of his best troops. Still, the present army has great striking power, and some half million young Germans are coming of fighting age yearly. While that army remains mobile, and isn't compelled to stand and fight unless it wants to, Hitler may be able to continue the war indefinitely. You will begin to get a line on his length of life the day that Anglo - Arnrican troops get ashore across the English channel and establish their bridgehead for the armies to follow. By The Associated Press * The German News Agency Transocean declared today in a broadcast datelined from Adolf Hitler's heaclquaretrs lhat Hitler conferred yesterday wilh Dr. An- | Ion Pavelic, leader of the Croat ] state in occupied Yugoslavia. The conference was attended also by Joachim Von Ribbenlrop, German foreign minister; Dr. Milan Budak, Croat foreign minister; German Field Marshal Keitel; and a General Begic. The broadcast, recorded by the Associaled Press, said "Ihe fuehrer had discussions with the Pog- lavnik (leader) concerning the political and military situation in the common struggle of the Axis against Bolshevism and the Bril- ish-American plutocracies." The broadcast asserted that in turn, Pavelic "stressed the determination of the Croat people. . . to employ all their forces for an uncompromising victory of the three-power - power - pact-nations over their common enemies." Pavelic's visit to Hitler was another in the procession of Axis satellite functionaries in recent weeks as the German leader sought to rally them to greater effort in the war. These have included representatives of Bulgaria, Hungary, Rumania and Norway, Hitler and Premier Mussolini of Italy also have conferred. The broadcast said thai Gen. Glaise Von Horslenau, Ihe German plenipolenliary in Croatia, also attended.

There is every desire not to break the record of 129 peaceful years which began after her war with Denmark.

The same German source said, according lo the Swedish dispatch: "The Kremlin dictator'wanted to emphasize to England and America lhat he wouldn't have any limitations set on him by anyone regarding territorial questions of the western boundaries of Russia." The German diplomatic source, the dispatch added, said Russian charges lhat the Polish request for an invest igalion of alleged slaying ,of war prisoners "indicated Poland is negolialing secrelly with Hitlerite Germany is a complete swindle."
