By DeWITT MacKENZIE So at long last the Allies have reclaimed the North African shore of the Mediterranean, theieb achieving one of the most magmfi cent victories of the war could offer, for this theater is among the ranking strategical positions of the whole world. To be sure, there slill remains .mopping up to .do in Tunisia. „,.„ Wear, shell - shocked German planes and Italian soldiers—man of their ' officers having fled to the continent — are holding out in some of the mountain fortifications. Details are lacking, but it's Ikely that a considerable force may be out on ed its attacking machine like a precision instrument. The whole long line has been so delicately manu- vered that the coordination has been perfect. So has the timing. Crucial attacks were supported by application of pressure in adjoining sectors. And when the Americans and British finally rushed to seize the great plums of the victory — Bizcrte for the Yanks: Tunis for the John Bulls — there were less than an hour and a half apart. That's a tribute to the high command and to nil the officers and non-coms who carried out the orders. It's a tribute to the grand fighting men who made it possible for the orders to be executed. In short, we're talking about a grc-il Army. Some of the enemy undoubtedly have escaped in small boats — probably mostly officers. As for the rest, it looks like death or surrender for most of them. A large- scale escape by water seems impossible. The sea swarms with Allid Naval ships, and the sky is dark with American and British the tip of Cap Bon, hoping against Jt, nope that an unfriendly sea will relent and bring them evacuation facilities. Still, what's left to be done, can be done handily. The day is ours. .This throws Hitler the world beater back behind the crumbling walls of Europe which he has all but wrecked, he paranoic genius of death and instruction fmnally is on the defensive, with the enemy prssing him on all sides. With the all hightest retreat ;goes Mussolini's empire, for which II Duce sacrificed his honor and stabbed a wounded neighbor in the back. With»it, too. goes the Italian dictator's outlying defenses '- against invasion. The Bull of Ba- C shan which roared so terrifyingly i?. from the security of Rome now turns out to be a sea - cow which sprawls more or less helpless, waiting for the kill. The Tunisian victory represents perfect Allied military coordination and timing. That speaks well for the future. It speaks doubly well in that this- coordination couldn't have existed without the most friendly cooperation among ;the Allied in this bloody engagement — the British, the French and the Americans. As I have pointed out before, the great Rommel and his veteran Africa Korps, along with the seasoned forces of Nazi General Von Arnim, have literally been squeezed into submission The Allies have maintained a fierce pressure along that mountan front of 120 miles — a feat calling for vast skill and endurance. Day after day the Allied have hammered at that line in vital sectors, never giving the enemy a moment's rest. Outnumberd in men •and equipment, the Axis has had to defend itself at all points without even a breathec^.

Although the 37-year-old right liandcr had a 1942 record of 10 and 3. Rickey, after succeeding Lieut Col. Larry S. MacPhail as head man of the Dodgers, lost little time sending Allen and $30,000 to Philadelphia for the much younger Rube Melton. Allen declined to sign with the Phillies. Then, five days before the opening of the season, in a deal that never has been fully explained, Rickey summoned the baseball writers to his office and announced the Dodgers had re-purchased Allen. The records show how smart that deal was. When Johnny went into yesterday's game with the Boston Braves in the seventh .with the score deadlocked it marked his third relief appearance of the season. He pitched shutout ball for three innings as his mates went on to club out a 9 to 7 victory, and give Allen his third straight success. In eight innings of relief hurling, Allen has given up only eight hits, three to the Phils in 2 2-3 innings, two to the Giants in 2 1-3 and three yesterday. Prior to Allen's appearance the Braves had clubbed the offerings of Ed Head and Les Webber after the Brooklynites had shoved across five runs in the second, three on Augie Galan's homer Eddie Joost almost matched that with a two-run homer for Boston in the third. With the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates kept idle by the weather, the Cincinnati "Reds moved into the National League's runner-up spot, two and one-half games back of the Dodgers. They closed out the Chicago Clubs 5 to 4 as Johnny Vander Meer received help from "Fireman" Joe Beggs in registering his fourth pitching triumph. The other National League game saw the Phillies go on their biggest scoring spree of these as on behind the five-hit pitching of venerable Si Johnson. With Jimmy Wasdell driving in six runs on a homer. . triple and single, the Phils blasted three Giant hurlers for 13 hits to win 13 to 3. A pair of rookies, Charlc Wens- loff and Bill Johnson, paced the New York Yankees to their fifth straight victory, a 6 to 2 decision over the Philadelphia Athletics. Wonsloff, who won 21 games with the Yanks' Kansas City farm club last season, pitched shutout ball for six innings. Johnson, up from Newark in the International circuit, drove three runs across the plate with his firs! major league homer in the fourth to run his hitting streak to eight straight games. Then after having a double go for naught, he poundnd another run across the platter with a single in the seventh. Johnny Humphrise outpointed Hal White in a ten-inning pitching duel as the Chicago White Sox lead out a 1-0 decision over the Detroit trigers. Humphrise, himself brought home the only run after leading off with a walk, and moviiv up to second on a sacrifice. Luke Appling produced the game winning hit — a double to left center. The Boston Red Sox waited until the ninth inning of their night game with the Washington Senators before 17,177 capital city fans to score two runs and take a 3 to 2 decision Eddie Lake's double was the big blow in the late uprising. The Cleveland —St. Louis tussle was postponed. ( Shoots'for the Works X S17 LOUIS BMWNS EXPECT OUTFIELDER 70 HELP BAT rUE INTO KNOCKED M 99 RUNS LAST STASOf/. SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON, JR.

Shades of Nineties Chicago — Alderman William Cowhey wants to put an 11 p.m. curfew on horseback riding in Chicago.

At the same time New Moon was taken from the "doubtful" list and became a definite starter. Straus announced a change in jockey for his colt signing up Wayne Danforth Wright. Wright is the Rcxburg Idaho rider who steered Shut Out to his surprise victory in the Kentucky Derby a yctir ago. Earlier Rocco Sisto had been expected to handle New Moon. Bizerte, Tunis (Continued From Page One) ond U. S. Corps had cleared the important town of Ferryvillc by 4 p. m. and at 4:13 p. m. (heir forward elements entered Bizerte " the bulletin said. Field dispatches earlier had said that the Bizerte entry was made; first, at 4:15 p.m. and that the penetration of Tunis was made five minutes later — the conflict was not immediately explained, but possibly was duo to difficulties of field communication whle the actions still raged.) Isolated grouus of Axis soldiers fought overnight in the narrow streets and thick - walled houses of Tunis and Bizerte in an effort lo win a few hours reprieve for columns fleeing eastward in a crowded jumble along the few northern roads still in enemy hands. (Axis dispatches broadcast by the Berlin and Rome radios and recorded by the Associated Press today admitted thai Bizcrlc had fallen, but the Germans said street fighting still was in progress in Tunis, i Capture of the two cities left the Axis forces of the north no refuge but the coastal hills and the thin, mountainous Cap Bon peninsula. If the Germans and Italians reach Cap Bon in strength they will be able to add days lo the time required for the final and complete Allied victory, but their positions there can have litlle effect on military developments, (A Home dispatch recorded in London by the Associated Press said some Italian troops had already "taken up new positions on the Cap Bon peninsula.") Airmen who struck at shipping in the straits of Sicily said they saw a number of boats carrying troops heading for Sicily, indicating a partial evacuation was being attempted, but it was on a small scale and a large percentage of Unships are being sunk. It appeared most probably that the Axis could not attempt a large - scale evacuation. 36th Producer Added to New Midway Field Stamps, Ark., May 8—Special to the Hope Star—The HOth .successful producer was added in the new Midway field of Lafayette county Thursday as Gene Golf's Darnell No. 1 in the NL NK section 9-15-241 died a Hi!)" flowed after casing perforations.' est location, the Darnell No. 2 NW NIC of section 9-15-24., in the same area.
