H6M Sf Aft, KOPI, ARKANSAS Wednesday, May 5, 1943 fftx/s Fear of Sici/y, Sardinia Invasion /s Significant ^Analysis of •V f the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MncKENZIE Axis fenrs that the Allies may I getting set to invade the bh> i I channel has become. n hunting ! ground for Axis warplnnes, many of which have been based on Sicily. Sardinia, which is only a little more than a hundred miles fror.i Tunisia, also holds a club over tlrs channel. j What's more natural than that the ! Allies should have a house cleaning ! of Sicily and Sardinia with Ihs !-wind-up of the Tunisian campaign'.' j Ono uE the prime objectives of the ' whole African offensive is to reopen j the Medite. .-area,-, shipping routes j which long have been impractical | for ordinary shipping. I Any Allied invasion of Italy, or any attack up through the Balkans, calls for a wide open Mediterranean for United Nations shipping. Tho virtual severance of the Market Report campaign j<; a cra/.v idea route through the Sicilian channel be getting set to invade the"bi"' I li -- v *•'*'*" :l tremendous handicap Islands of Sicily and Sardinia even ! '" Bl ' itai " Lintl the> United States " " in accumulating Uieir striking power in Africa and the Middle East. Instead of being able to use the fhurt- cut through the Mediterranean they have been forced to make the long haul clear around South Africa. You can see what this means when you figure that it's only 3,300 nautical miles from Kngland to Egypt via the Mediterranean, whereas it's 11,500 nautical miles around Africa. Whatever else follows the Allies seem likely to clean out Sicily and Sardinia in Hie immediate future. Where they will strike after that is still the secret of the high command. tnoidenlly another island which is fairly sure to go by the board is tiny Italian Pantelloria which lies at the mouth of the before the Tunisian limshed, isn't such &t that. 3 The Germans assert a lot of Allied shipping, including invasion barges, is. assembled at Gibraltar. {This announcement likely ir, a fish- Ing expeditoin for inforiiiaton. but fhat doesn't necessarily mean the i'eport isn't true. It will be recalled that Berlin was broadcasting clusc- the-bone information about the iAlUed fleet for the North African landing last fall some dnvs before the event actually took place. j However, the purpose of this ar- iicle isn't to debate whether the •Boche report is true. The point i.-that it wouldn't be surprising vi find that'the Allies arc indeed preparing for invasion of Italian terri- •tory to coincide with the wind-up of the Tunisian show, which today is reported as continuing to go well £or the right side. And. as th° Nazis plaintively observe, then? is no law which says such an invasion has to await the surrender of the last Axis soldier on African "soil. The new Allied strategy in relation to the entire Axis war-machine is to hit the enemy at his vital points as possible 1 simultaneously and to keep o-i hitting, so as to make him divide his strength and fight without pause for rest or repair. Now apart from the fact that Sicily is the natural bridge between the great island and Cap Bon, Tunisia. Only ninety mile; separate Sicily from Africa at this point, and all through-shipping must pass here.

Coal Truce of 15-Days May Be Extended Washington, .Mny 5 — W) — The sttilemnted eonl w;ige struggle stirred spocululion here todny Ihal the IS - dny truce under which the indust/y now is operating may be extended indefinitely with Harold I,. Ickes serving as boss o( Unc-lt- Sum's coal fields — perhaps for the duration. Once again, coal poured into the war production furnaces at fill blast, with most mines on a six- day week, but neither Hie administration nor the United Mine Work ITS gave the slightest hint of yield ing in their wartime wage nn'ii jui-isdicllonni tug-of-war. At the same lime, few informed I sources Celt another wulkout — such us that -of last weekend — would follow expiratioh of the truce, although they conceded this was un optimistic view since UMW President John L. Lewis plainly has given no indication that he would discourage another stoppage These sources stressed that, de spite their differences, none of tin principals in the dispute want to damage the war effort by cutting off the coal supply. Both President Roosevelt and Hie fuel administrator who now bosses the government - operated mines left no doubt yesterday that they still consider the War Labor Board the only avenue for permanent armistice in the coal case. And Lewis stood just as solid against the board which he terms prejudiced. Ickes yesterday ordered on a six- day-week all mines which have received coal price adjustments to compensate for the extra wages- anil some saw that as a possible way out for the UMW which seeks wage increases of $2-a - day and portal-to-portal underground ptiy, among other things. The sixth day's time-and-a-half would provide more pay for miners now working only five. But operator spokesmen insisted most of the mines already are on such a schedule, and others pointed out even if that paved the way for peace, an permanent agreement reached Involving wage increases would have to be submitted to the board for approval. If the truce time ends without settlement, informed persons felt the miners might merely continue to work — with the fields operating under the American flag, and the workers looking for any subsequent deal to be retroactive to the date of their last contract's expiration.
