v ; MOPE STAR, HOPt, ARKANSAS O Tuciday, May 11, 1943 Stalemate Is About the Only Hope left for Germans Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZIE The Axis debacle in Tunisia with all its implications has given Herr Hitler and his followers a bad case of mental williwaws. A wllliwaw, you know, is that notorious Aleutian ill - wind which twists itself into knots at hurrcane velocity and blows no man good. If that figure is too fanciful we can fall back on the crude but precise remark that the Nazis have the wind up. A dispatch from Bern says the Germans are "walking around as though hit on the head." The Fuehrer is moaning guttar- ally about the "superhuman hardships" of his troops in Russia, and about the damnable Allied bombing of western Europe. If he knew anybody better than himself to whom he could pray, he would be doing it. Therefore we may be sure that he eagerly approves Spanish Generalissimo Franco's appeal for peace. Franco says that neither the Axis nor the Allies can destroy the other and "it is senseless to delay the peace." That wraps up in a tidy package the idea which is the Nazi' hope — that Germany can defend itself stoutly enough to produce a stalemate which will leave most of the occupied countries in its possession. Gone are the days when Hitler dreamed of overrunning the world. All he asks of fortune now is that he be permitted to retain some part of the territories which he has stolen. So werk has his position become that he no longer wants to fight for his loot. He desires peace on stalemate terms, and it's safe to bet two bits he would accept a lot less if it were offered to him. The "unconditional surrender "being enacted in Tunisia is stunning Berlin. Of course we aren't entitled to try to read General Franco's mind. However, it's reasonable to suppose that in advocating peace he Is considering, among the many issues, the effect of a continuation of the war on his own country. Neutral Spain is like a ripe peach TOPS FOR YOUR HAIR Smooth It, add lustre—stylo with fragrant dressing—only 23o on a limb which hangs low over the school - yard fence. It might put ideas into the heads of passers by. The air constantly vibrates with reports that Hitler is going to strike at the Allies through Spain. Or that the Allies are preparing to invude the Spanish mainland via Gibraltar in order to compel the Nazis to maintain large forces on the Spanish frontier while United Nations invasion operations are proceeding elsewhere. Franco wouldn't relish either of these developments. Naturally the Allies aren't going to alter their demand for "unconditional surrender." It's clear that Hitler recognizes this, too. for the Nazi High Command is feverishly trying to strengthen its defenses on all fronts, from the Balkans right round to Norway. The Boche, who are first class soldiers, appear to be up against one of their own smart schemes — the application of fierce pressure at numerous vital points simultaneously until opportunity permits oE the sudden development of one or more of the drives. That's the strategy which the Allies used to crack Tunisia. And le signs are that a similar line s to be employed against Hitler n the continent. Certainly there re in the offing some mightly in- cresting developments about hich I wouldn't want to specu- nte here. It may be that the Tunisian clean- p is moving a bit more rapidly lan the Allied command antici- ated and that there may be a ny lag in development of some of he promising adventures. Howver, it will be surprising if we on't get some sort of fresh offen- ive in the immediate future. Mean me the Russians are supporting constant pressure strategy in icir terrific drive in the vital 'Tovorossisk sector of the western 'aucasus.

They're really going places in he Southern Association — and getting nowhere fast. When it comes to the league standings, the boys from Ponce Do ion Park arc as inconsistent as Berlin radio broadcast. It's been in up-and-down club this season, vith the honors about evenly divided as to direction. The Crackers started the season going strong. Now they're only .wo notches out of last place. They ost a 4-3 decision to the Chattanooga Lookouts last night in the season's first night game played n the Tennessee city. Let's take a random look at how Atlanta has ranked in the standings. On April 30, just one week after the season started, Manager Al Lcitz's outfit was fourth. Three days later it had climbed to second, and the following day it was still in the runner - up position, aut tied with New Orleans. And both of them trailed behind Birmingham and Nashville. who shared league - leading honors.

Lou Novikoff May Be Traded by Chicago Cubs BY JUDSON BAILEY Associated Pre 88 Sports Write" 1 The major leagues arc using the intermission before their first In- tcrsectioniil strife of the season to fed out trade possibililics and the foremost figure In their discussions of deals apparently is Lou Novikoff, the Chicago Cubs' holdout outfielder. Manager Jimmy Wilson of Ihc Bruins disclosed under cross cx- mniniilion last night that three other National League clubs the Cincinnati Reds, New York Giants and Philadelphia Phillies — hnvc made propositions tor the mad Rus sian. The hitch thus far is thai the prospective buyers want to spend money instead of talent and Wilson is insisting on a righthanclcd hitting outfielder in exchange for the colorful cloutcr who batted un even .300 last year. •tames Gallagher, general manager of the Cubs, has taken the pos ition, publicly at least, Hint Novi koff would cither have to agree to j the Cubs' terms or remain out o baseball. Nevertheless, Galliighci is making the current castcrr swing .with his ball club and un doubtcdly will be asked about Novikoff at various stops. Just what rival clubs might be willing to give, or the Cubs take, for Novikoff, is a matter for guesswork. The Phillies, who perhaps need him most, have the least to offer. Besides there is a feeling on the Cubs that if he were traded to Philadelphia he probably would turn up shortly afterward with tilt- Brooklyn Dodgers. This is because Branch Rickey of the Dodgers and Bill Cox, the Phillies' new owner, arc intimate traders. Recently the Cubs sold Pitcher George Washburn to the Phillies and within a week he had been dealt to the Dodgers and turned over to Brooklyn's Montreal farm in the International League. The Giants have offered nothing but cash and the Cubs probably arc covetous of Buster Maynard, whom they have little chance of getting. If a player deal should be made with the Reds, Gerald Walker might go to the Cubs. Brookln might get into the bidding. The Dodgers, although leading the National League, arc far from satisfied with their performances to date. The team has been in a hitting slump and of its six defeats, five have been by one run iind the other by two. Averages of Batters Are Leveling Off New York, May 11 — (/!') -- The jailing averages in the National met American Leagues have lev- elled oft to somcthnig approaching quality In the last week, but the most novel note they disclosed to- tiny was four members of the so- called weak - hitting Cincinnati Reds among the ten lop hitters in the senior circuit. Little Lonnic Froy. oven with his balling mark shrunken 70 points Irom the imposing .<tf>7 he sported u week ngo, continued In lead both major leagues with .1)07. This average by a veteran who ordinarily is under .21)0 wits sur prising enough, but hardly more than that his Cincinnati team mates, Frank McCormick, Eric Tipton and Gerald Walker, all were present among the lenders. McCormick was not among the first (en hist week, but he spurted into third place with .35:) while Stan Hack of the Chicago - Cubs who also was missing from the lenders a week ago, soared intr second place with .373. Together they crowded the Phillis' Danny Litwhilcr out of the runner - up slot and into a tie with his team mate, Babe Dahlgrcn, for fourll at .3-10.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York, May 11 —f/Pj— Light selling put leading stocks clown fractions to more than a point in today's early market proceedings but enough bidding eventually arrived to cut initial losses substantially or switch assorted issues into the plus column. The morning stumbel was attributed partly to the desire of some customers to cash in on HIP lengthy climb to 3-year peaks. The good African war news aided sentiment. Dealings slackened appreciably. The first hour's turnover was about half that of yesterday and volume for the full stretch was around 2,000,000 shares versus 2,515,000 in the proceeding session, Prices near the close were no worse than mod- rately mixed.
