M-[K : f AGI FOUR MOM STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, May 3, 1943 Tunisia Luff Indicates Allies Regrouping for the Kill Analysis of the News by Mackenzie •?' Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWlTT MacKENZIE General Henri Honorc Giruud's prediction that "this month or May will sec the complete defeat of the Boche in Tunisia" seems like rea- son&ble speculation as things now stand. ,«The Allied forces American in 1944." It could be, all right. Maybe he has a lot of inside information. However, as this column previously has said' it looks from here as though the duration of the Hitlcrian war depends largely on when the Allies are | able to invade Western Europe i from Britain. We must wait and I sec. Municipal Tax on Literature Sales Invalid Allied Raiders Bomb German Coast Points London, May 3 (/!').— Royal Air Force bombers and fighters fought their way through German fighter plane opposition to attack industrial targets in the Dutch coastal city of Ijinuiden yesterday and follow up a heavy attack Saturday by I big American bombers on the German submarine base at St. Nazairc, f British and French — have done s-I* '^workmanlike job in driving iwcdges into vital sectors of the ? mountain arc of Axis defenses.

May 3 — (tV) — Kc- vcrsing a previous decision, the Supreme Court ruled today that municipal ordinances imposing a license tax upon the sale of regigious literature viola tied the rights of freedom of speech.freedom of the pfess and freedom to worship. The American Newspaper Pub- lisheVs Association had filed a brief with the tribunal urging the ordi- under orders from Hitler, but day by day the Allies have lightened the iron ring which they have thrown about the powerful fortifications among the craggy heights. Latest reports indicate a slack- \ening_off in the fighting but this doesn't indicate any weakening on ., our attack. It means that the Al- jk lies have reached that point at Vhich any force inevitably must arrive in a furious, all-out drive— „ a period of consolidation of gains, . r i and preparation saults. for further as- , " The lull isn't likely to last long. however, for time is an important element. The Allies are straining every nerve for a quick kill and will give the enemy little chance f to repair the damage to his defenses and perhaps get a few more There is no longer any doubt as to the ultimate outcome of the battle of Tunisia. So far as the time of its achievement is concerned,. it's essential that the job be cleared up as quickly as possible *?, so as to permit further operations against the Boche on the con- supplies from Italy to help hang on. him The British raiders shot down six of the enemy planes, but lost four of their own fighters. Mosquito bombers sped across France virtually without opposition late yesterday and unloaded delayed action bombs from rooftop level upon railroad shops at Thionville, a center of the Lorraine iron ore and coal transport network and junction of the main Rhine valley- Paris line aftd the Brusscls-Saar- bruccken line. Pilots said their cargos crashed through the main shop In five to four decisions, one by i buildings. Chief Justice Stone and one by Jus- I Seven of the American bombers tinent. The good fighting weather has arrived in many scetors, and by i the first of June weather an.d - ground will be prime for invasion. | If by any chance that invasion should be across the English channel, then it should be got under Way in early summer in order really to put the screws on Hitler before the rains and mud of fall arrive to save him. That would be equally true if the 'Allied assault, should be made through the Balkans, for the bad autumn weather starts early there. Invasion of Italy, however, isn't so ; dependent on the weather and presumably, could be undertaken whenever the Tunisian show is ended. , f Any deal is bad for the Allies, of course, for it gives the Axis just so fnUch.mo're time lo prepare for the onslaught that is the point of the great sacrifice being demanded of the German and Italian ' troops in Tunisia—to hold the Allies so as to give Hitler a chance to get set. General Giraud also predicted "the thirty years war which began in 1914 will be ended victoriously tice Douglas, the court struck down ordinances of Fort Smith, Ark., Opelika, Ala., Casa Grande. Ariz., and Jeannette, Pa. Justices Reed, Roberts, Frankfurter and Jackson dissented in each case. Last June 8, the court had sustained in a five to four decision ordinances passed by the first three cities. Since then, Justice Bernes. who resigned to become economic stabilization dirctor, was succeeded by Dustice Rutledge, who voted against constitutionality. Saving considerable emphasis was placed on the kind of literature which members of Jehovah's Witnesses were distributing, Justice Douglas said: "Plainly a community may not suppress, or the state tax, the dissemination of views because they are unpopular, annoing or distasteful. If that device were ever sanctioned, there would have been iorged a ready instrument for the suppresion of the faith which any minority cherishes, but which does not happen to be in favor. That would be a complete repudiation of the philosophy of the bill of rights." By the same division, but with Justice Black delivering the decision, the court invalidated a Struthers, Ohio, ordinance designed to permit persons to sleep without disturbance by making it unlawful for any person distributing handbills, circulars or other advertisements "to ring the door bell, sound the door knocker or otherwise summon" the inhabitants of a residence to receive the literature. The ordinance was challenged by a member of "Jehovah's Witnesses." The member — Thclma MARTIN — was fined $10 and costs by the major's court at Struthers. Black said the 1 ordinance was "invalid because in conflict with the freedom of speech and press." Deaths Last Night By The Associated Press Thoreau cronyn New York, May 3 —(If) — Thoreau Cronn, 62, formerly managing editor of Collier's magazine and a former newspaperman, died last night were lost in the smash at St. Nazaire, which was carried out in heavy weather and against determined resistance of German Fockc- Wulf planes. It was believed that a large forse of American bombers took part in the attack. The weather forced the American aiUrcraft to separate on the re. turn flight and made it difficult to determine immediately the number of German planes destroyed. The German radio claimed 11 four-engined bombers were destroyed. It was the first announced raid by U. S. bombers based in England since the attack on Bremen April 17, in which 16 planes were lost. Colin Bednall, London Daily Mail air correspondent, rode with the American bombers to St. Nazaire and returned with this enthusiastic comment: "Now that I have been in action with the United States heavy bombardment squadrons I am more convinced than ever that they have one of the really great answers of the war. "If they get the reinforcements they need — and if these inforce- ments are trained in operational experience — nothing will keep them out ot any part of Axis Europe within their reach." front pages with the "yoo hoo" Incident. That attracted so much attention, but the General never retreated from the position that he was merely disciplining soldiers for conduct he considered unbecoming. Only a short tihie later, Lear dented u lot of brass hats in his command by a general weeding out of incompetent officers. And only a few months before that, he had "slocked" some brass hats in Washington by adopting a policy of explaining orders first and demanding that they be carried out afterwards, a polciy which General Montgomery adopted in Egypt and which is now credited with most of the splendid morale that contributes to the Eighth Army's cracking of the El galamcin line. Lt. Gen. Ben Lear is credited with being of the Army's "toughest" generals. But the men he has turned out of the Second Army arc lough, too — and it's the tough ones who win battles and come home as fcly. Classified Ads must be In office day before publication.

Washington By JACK STINNETT Wide World Features Writer Washington — Come the end of May, Lt. Gen. Ben Lear, commander of the Second Army, will be automatically retired. He will be 64 years old on May 12 and according to Army regulations, at the end of the pay period he' through—with of course, a comfortable pension for the rest ot his life. It doesn't neccssarilly mean that in wartime, but by the General's own statement he will no longer command combat troops. If that means that he is going to bo sandwiched between a desk and a chair in Washington for the duration, it'll be a blood shame for the arm in training. Because, according to most of his friends and many of his men, Ben Lear has had few equals in the Army for turning out fighting men. Born in Canada, Lear was graduated from the business office of a Pueblo, Colo., newspaper to top sergeant of the First Colorado Infantry Volunteers in the Spanish- American war. He was 19. His father, Ben Lear, Sr., was a private in his company and there still is a story of how the sergeant dressed down his "old man" for grousing about K.P. duty. Whether it's true doesn't matter, because it's a perfect illustration of the kind of commanding officer Lear became.
