'friS HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tueiilay, May 18, 1*4*. Aleutians Valuable As ilysis of News by lackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZIE ». > The prediction by Army officers Sin Washington that Japanese - held T-Kiska island is likely to be the |j next objective of our forces in the i'Aletians — after they've mopped stop the Japs on Attu — has brought 5 a request that I deal again with *ihis obscure sector of our global ar. **" '•''•'•'• - .*, „„ Because they're an out-of - the- Sway spot up on one shoulder of Kihe 'world, the Aleutians seem a , /long way off. That's especially 'i| true when Europe is drawing us *;hwith such spectacles as the catas- fetropic unleashing of the floods by ^*ihe Koyal Air Force's blasting of fine Mohne and Eder Dams east of JtHe Rhineland. This unprecedent- l'e& feat, by the way, likely will L'prove to be one of the far - reach- ":irig victories of the war — the 'equivalent of a major land opera- rltion by a great Army. 1, the Aleutians arc impor- if mysterious. Were the Japs sharply out of the sea, making landings hazardous in the extreme. However, part of the islands are susceptible to development as submarine and air bases. The most important, of course, is Un- Alaska which lies next to the Alaskan peninsula. That's where our Dutch Harbor is, and the island has vital defenses for the protection of the approaches to that part of the American continent. The Islands held by the Japs are on the other end of this tail of islands. Kiska is the best of the . lot, for this has spaces which can be developed as air -fields.Attu also could be used for emergency airplane landings after a lot of work in preparing the ground. The Japanese objective in occupying these islands probably was" mainly defensive. Attu and Kiska are in the path of shipping and airplanes, and if developed as bases could be used to hamper any operations we might undertake against Japanese territory from Alaska, or try to stymie our sea and air communications with Russia. Of course, these defensive bases also might be used against the Alaskan mainland or even northwestern United States, if the Japs were permitted to develop sufficient strength. Certainly .it's a po- tenlial menace which couldn't be overlooked. One would assume ihat when we have reclaimed these watenr.ost islands we will dveelop them as bases. They would be valuable in defense, and they would be fine stepping stones both for our operations against the Japs and for communications with Russia. Attu. ,in- i by the way, is only about 700 odd Vltroup. the day might come when Kamchatka. I America would have to pay heav- I ;I"ily lor it. Mind you. I think it's ^possible to exaggerate the impor- ance of the present Nipponese •••position there, but you know the s old tale about little acorns grow>' tag into mighty oaks.
