By DeWITT MacKENZIE Iterr Hitler's brain trust appears to be wandering abotit in foggy uncertainty regarding Allied intentions — a strained state of mind not relieved any by President Roosevelt's unamplified announcement that "the conference of the combined staffs in Washington has ended in complete agreement on future operations in all theaters of the war." You couldn't blame the poor Fuehrer if he got mad and called the war off. on the grounds that the enemy is Using unfair tactics. As an illustration of the position, important cricles in {he Boche cap- tal yesterday produced these divergent ideas: , _ The Allies are getting ready for invasion and Germany must go on the defensive. Ther e will be a RUs- sian offensive. There won't be a •Russiab- offensive for at least a month. There won"t be any Russian offensive this slimmer. Stalin won't attack the Nazis first because he isn't sure whether the Anglo : American combination is ready to invacje Western Europe. In the midst of this muddy speculation came word of the successful Red attack against the fiercley defended German bridgehead on the Kuban delta opposite the Crimea. But while the Nazis knew that they had taken a beating, this didn't clarify the .question "of who is going to inaugurate the summer's grand slanx— if any — and when. The Russian drive is for the purpose \>f dlisting the Nazis entirety from this, side gateway to the Caucasus. The Gentians have been hanging onto this sector for dear life, ,in hope of,being able to land an drfny there, from the Crimea, which Ues.,just dcross the narrow strait bf Kerch.

That much isn't difficult to figure out. But is Stalin going to un- Uertake a major offensive, or docs he indeed intend to wait until John Bull and Uncle Sam have clambered ashore in Western Europe? Well, only the Allied high command knows that — we hope. If j America and Britain are going to be able to invade Western Europe in the hear future, then it wouldn't be surprising if it lias been a greed that Stalin shall hold hish and so that concerted offensives can be made on both the eastern and west- enl fronts. This would put Herr Hitler in a position siriiilar in sbme ways to that occupied by the Kaiser hi the last war, that is, hurling troops madly back and froth across Eur ope to defend two fronts at once. However, the Munich paper-hanger suffers from a disability which didn't afflict his August predecessor — Germany's transport system is pretty well shot to pieces now, and speedy movement of troops and supplies would be a tough problem. It would be particularly difficult because of the terrific air - power , which' the Allied can bring against communications — something the old Kaiser didn't have to worry about greatly. However, it the Allied high command isn't prepared to undertake major invasions anywhere in Eur- ope'in the near future, then it's likely that Stalin either will strike at Hitler, or that the latter will have brie more great fling at trying to distroye the Red military machine. One would scarcely expect the eastern front to remain in a state of comparative in action throughout the good fighting months of the summer. Actually Hitler and Stalin are sparring with each other up and down the entire length of the thousand mile battle - front, looking for an opening that may permit of more extensive operations. Hitler, of course, is having to be doubly cautious so as not to get Caught with a big offensive in Western Europe while he is launching ah 'a t t a c k against Russia.
