Cl FAGt FOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Friday, May 21, 1943 Signs Point fo All-Out Nazi Offensive to Crush Reds Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. most logical move for the head him — provided he thinks he has time before an invasion overtakes him. Actually the trap is closing so fast and securely about the rat that he will be fling himself against a fairly solid wall whatever direction he turns. Still, the time when rats fight hardest, and sometimes are most dangerous, is when they're cornered and hurt. If Hitler decides to hav another stab at Russia, he will move soon. Weather and ground already are suitable in the south, and fighting conditions are improving in the north. By DeWITT MacKENZlE Is Hitler preparing a last desperate fling to crush Russia? One of the highly important points brought out by Prime Minister Churchill is his address before the joint session of Congress was his prophecy that the Fuehrer is likely to make another all-out attempt against the Reds. Certainly there are plenty of signs that the Nazi chief is getting set for contingencies. Reports from Moscow today — as for many days past — show continuance of fierce attack and counter-attack in the vital sector just above the strategic Black - sea naval port of Novorossisk as the Bolshevists and Boche maneuver for advantage in what is one of the gateways to the Caucasus. The way Mr. Churchill put the situation is this: "It may well be that a further trial of strength between the German and Russian armies is impending. Russia has already inflicted injuries upon the German military organism which will, I believe, prove ultimately mortal. "But there is little doubt that Hitler is reserving his supreme gambler's throw for a thrid attack to break the heart and spirit and destroy the armed forces of the mighty natioin which he has already twice assaulted in vain. He will not succeed." Had the prime minister seen fit to develop this point he might have given us some interesting "ifs" and "whens." The gambling Hitler is a great opportunist — he claims to work by divine intuition — and there are circumstances now which might deter him. This column has expressed the view — and still believes in it —that the question of whether Hitler will attack Russia in a big way depends on how seriously he regards the threat of an Allied invasion of France. If he thinks the Allies aren't prepared to invade for some months, he might well take a chance and hurl everything he has against the Russians. That probably would represent his final big offensive before digging himself in for defense. On the other hand, if he believes the Allies are about to invade France, or even the Balkans, he would be bound to pause before committing himself to another Russian adventure which would call for employment of most of his resources. An Allied assault on Italy might not deter him. As remarked in previous articles, he undoubtedly already has discounted the loss of Italy. An Allied occupation of this little country, which is shut off from Germany by the Alps, would not necessarily raise a threat of such immediate urgency that Hitler couldn't take a chance on attacking Russia. A drive against Russia is the The Allies are to be congratulated on the death of Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, commander in chief of the entire Jap fleet if the Tokyo report is true. He was on of the most capable and forceful of the militaristic enemies of peace, and his removal from the scene is a vcitory for the United Nations. Maybe the death of Yamamoto saved him -from facing an Allied court martial after the war, for there arc a lot of these barbarians who may answer charges. Certainly he will not dictate peace in Washington, as he boasted. National Loop Finding Phills Plenty Tough By JUDSON BAILEY Associated Press Sports Writer The Philadelphia Phills not only are standing on their own feet these days, they are tramping on th e toes °f a 'ot °f other clubs in the National League. Here is what they did yesterday: Shut out the Chicago Cubs in both ends of a doubleheader 3-0 and 2-0, allowing the Bruins just four hits in each game. 2. Made the Cubs' plight so disturbing that Philip K. Wrigley their multi - millionare owner, personally announced settlemen of the club's contract squabble with Lou Nonikoff. 3. Rejected the Brooklyn Dod gers' offer of two players for Sec ond Baseman Danny Murtaugh thus causing the Dodgers to sel them Pitcher Newt Kimball and send Alex Kampouris to Washington for cash in order to get under the 25 - player limit. 4. Threatened the third - place standing of the world champion St. Louis Cardinals. The twin triumphs oveCubs lye The twin triumphs over the Cubs were achieved on superlative pitching by Charley Fuchs and Lefty Albgerheauser, a pair of rookies. This extended the Cubs' losing streak to nine games, miring them to compromise on the salary demands of Novikoff, a .300 hitter last year who was the last major league holdout. The detail of whether he should be paid during the period of his suspension was to be worked out today. The Phillies' winning string vvas stretched to five games and they moved within half a game ol the Cardinals, who were beaten 52 at Brooklyn. Montgomery Has Nod Over Beau Jack Tonight By SID FEDER New York, May 21 Wi— r>ounc- ng Beau Jack and Bob Montgomry collided lonigst for the world ightwcight championship, and try- ng lo pick the winner is like Aunt Smrrui makng up her mind be- ween the blue hat wtih the bouquet f bananos or the red one with he bird nest.

But when you add everything up, you're still no closer to the answer n the sixty-two-fifly question. Ordinarily, it's $64. but you're getting a reduction for cash in this one). On recent form, the Jumping Jack, who was handed this New York version of the lightweight champoinship last December after Sammy Angott retired pcrmancnt- y for a couple of months, figures :o make his first "defense" a happy celebration. He not only lias cleaned up among the light- iveights, but he moved in among the welters and walloped FriUic Zivic and Henry Armstrong more than a little bit. But Bobcat Bob has had his artillery aimed at a light -weight title shot for a long time now, after five non - title tussles with 135 - pound bosses and he's confident he'll hit the bulls- eye in this battle between two Negro swatters.

Twelve of 25 Savoia - Marchctti- :, three cngined Italian bomb- rs, were set afire on th Milas irdrom of Sardinia i n attacks ithout a pause to give the reeling Vxis air force any rest. U. S. Flying Fortresses again aided Grosslcto airdrome, 90 miles orth of Rome, and a spokesman aid "some of the finest precision lombing of the war took place" iver its hangars, administration luildings and runways. FifCy - eight of 59 aircraft parked in the ground there were dc- troyed during the high altitude at- ack, reconnaissanc photographs howed. The fortified island of Panteilcr- a, 45 miles east of Cap Bon, was •aided again. P-38 Lightning fighters outfitted with bombs ranged from one end of Sardinia lo the other, blasting oridges, trains and barracks. B-25 Mitchells, with Lightning escorts, bombed the Villacidro aridromc northwest of Caglairi while B - 267 Marauders escorted by P-40 War- navvks attacked th anearby Dcci- momannu airdrome. A spokesman said they caused "tremendous damage to planes on the ground and in the air." RAF Wellington bombers had al- hawks attacked the nearby Dcci- momannu the preceding night, causing large fires which illuminated th e targets after the enemy had blacked out lights which the bomber crews saw still burning. United States air warriors achieved their most impressive triumph of the big day at Grosseto. Of 58 pianos destroyed there, 53 were of bomber or transport types, one was a four - engined bomber and four were single-sul- er fighters. Interpreters who scanned reconnaissance pictures taken later described the raid as probably the most successful of its kind ever attempted. The Grosselo airdrome buildings received many hits. At least nine fires were slartcd. The smoke was visible 90 miles, crewmen said. Almost equally impressive was the raid on Dceimomannu, where the Marauders and Warhawks shot down 13 enemy planes, including the seven six-engincd Mersburgs, in two separate engagements. The first battle occurred when 16 enemy fighters attacked before Ihe raiding formation readied the target. The running fight continued over the airdrome and until the returning American planes had j passed San Pitro island. The pilots reported that the enemy departed from customary tactics of attacking head on or from above on the sides and instead fell in alongside the P-40s, attempting to fight il out on a wing-lo-wing basis. Warhaw|.; pilots spotted tiie sever Merscburgs in formation near Villacidro. borne on wings spanning 19 feet, and .shot them all down. They finished the job by shooting up a radio building. It was left smoking. Photo reconnaissance showed that the Marauders which the War- hawks escorted destroyed 13 aircraft on the ground at Dccinu.inan- nu and hit the administration buildings and barracks. P-40 pilots who .shot duwn Mes- serschniilt 109s included Second Lieut. Arthur T. McDaneil of Vandervoort, Ark. New York, May 21 (/P) —George Washington U. has notified its opponents that it may cancel its 1943 football schedule, which would leave Washington, sport's biggest boomtown, depending on Maryland for its college football next fall. . .

Another kid who might be worth "importing" is Don Clayton of Fayctteville, N. C., high, who won nine firsts and a second place in a dual meet with Durham high and who took only four state titles because they wouldn't let him enter any more events. He's also a good football and basketball player but college scouts aren't interested because he's due to join the Army Air Force Aug. 30 . . . 3oyd Bartlcy, Illinois U. shortstop who'll get a tryout from the Cubs, s a better prospect than Lou Bou- drcau was in his college days, says Coach Wallie Rocttger. . . Jimmy Curran, veteran Merccrsburg, Pa., academy coach, thinks his 200- pound "rookie," Dick McFaddcn, could become another Barney Berlinger with a year's coaching. But he's Army bound, too. Atlanta, May 21 — (/I') — Sports writers back in April pooled their powers of prognostication and came forth with the prediction that Atlanta, Birmingham and Nashville would be the loams (o beat this year in Ihe southern. They didn't do so hot on Atlanta (now in sixth place), but their faith i n the Barons and th c Vols appears to have been well founded. Nashville is leading the pack, with Birmingham close behind in a see-saw race which has seen the lead change hands repeatedly among those two teams and Chattanooga. The voIs trailed New Orleans for seven innings befors pulling the game out of the fire and winning 5-3. The Barons lost their series opener to Kno.xville when the Smokies shoved across three runs in the ninth for a !) - 7 victory. Atlanta trounced last- plact Memphis 11-1.
