MOPE STAR, HOPI I ueiouy; 1 ^'_J:__l/-_ =:= rrr=--^=: Explosive State Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZIE By DEWITT MACKENIE The Russo - German battle-front is In a highly explosive state. The great fighting - line, along which many millions of troops are facing one another on the alerts, is seething fiercely. The Nazis arc making lightning stabs at thc Russians, now here and now there, and the. Reds are replying in kind —each feeling out the other's positions to learn disposition of troops and find weak spots. Also to keep up the war of nerves which al- ways'precedes an offensive. The lid on that pot of trouble is rocking about so violently that it's strange it hasn't blown off before this. Both sides evidently are set for major action. Each gives the other credit of intending to launch . an all-out offensive— and likely both are right. Hitler in particular has been showing signs the last few days fo getting his war - machine trimmed for a possible last huge gamble against the Bolshevists. However, he is proceeding' cautiously so as not to get caught with an Allied invasion of Western Europe while he is in a life and death struggle with Stalin. ; The fuehrer's first problem is to determine v.'here the Anglo-American Allies ere going to attack, and he must be burning a lot of incense to that much talked of intuition of his. He has another possible clue for his mystery today in the reports from Spain that there's a massing of Allied cargo vessels, transports and warships at Gibraltar. -Does this indicate an attack in Ihe Mediterranean theater? It cer- tion of the machines is the loss of the Nazi airmen involved. Heavy depletion of its ranks of trained pilots is one of the luftwaffe s greatest .weaknesses. Meantime th e Red Airforce is showing signs of increased strength. The war of the air has been intensified all along the front, from Leningrad in the north, to the Sea of Azov in the extreme south. Each side is ranging deep into enemy terrtiory to destroy communications and supplies. Such aerial activity is partly defensive, but it must precede any offensive by land forces. Taken in conjunction with the other operations, it means that both sides are warm ins? up for eventualities. It's worth nothing that June is the witching hour for offensive- minded generals in tlie European zone. Flashes of Life By The Associated Press Wartime Cooperation St Louis — A novelty store owner was called to jury duty and the manpower shortage threatened to close his store, but not for long. Unable to hire a helper, he ran this sign: "I am on jury duty this week. Store hours arc 7:30 to 9:30 a. m.; 12:45 to 1:30 p. m.; 4:45 to 600 p. m." He was punctual; his cutomers were faithful. They awaited the opening each day. Memorial Day Play Leaves Ball Leagues Tangled By JUDSON BAILEY Associated Press Sports Writer Baseball has three big weekends this SCHSOH Mcmoriul J.)«o \ Independence Day and Labor Day —and thc first of these has given the major leagues something to shout ajoout, if they have any breath left. In three topsy-turvy days comprising thc extended observance of Memorial Day in thc big leagues 39 games were played for the entertainment of 371,713 paying customers. When thc whole bewildering business was over, Ihe standings of both leagues had been scrambled — but the New York Yankees were on top in the American and the Brooklyn Dodgers still in front in the National. The Dodgers preserved Mr. Double . then Attention Housekeepers! Washington — There's a new specialist rating available for thc WAVES—"U" for utility. The Navy said the rating will be for women especially qualified for housekeeping duties at women's reserve centers. the Double Play Boise, Idaho — A bundle-laden WAAC made an awkward attempt to salute a Gowen Field major. He chidcd her about the results. She thrust the bundles suddenly into the major's arms, saluted him snappily, grabbed her parcels again and vanished. ta'inly could mean that very easily. However, that's Hitler's worry. As remarked before in this column, if the all highest decides that the first Allied assault is coming against Italian terriory and not through France, he may launch an assault on Russia forthwith. An invasion of Western Europe is the one that would place him in the greatest immediate peril. Hitler is estimated by observers to have something like 3,000,000 men on the Russian front. That represents a terrific weight, if he still has the equipment to match it. His objective in another offensive, of course, would be to render the Red Army impotent before he has to rush to defend him- i self against the other Allies. There's small likelihood that the Nazi chief can show anything like his former striking-power. His losses in materiel the past year have been recorded in Moscow reports as colossal. For instance, dispatches from the Russian front state that during the month of May the Germans lost more than 2,000 warplanes in thc eastern theater. And far worse than the destruc- His Last Success Tecumseh, Okla. — "I have diagnosed a thousand cases" said Dr. U. S.

They were shut out 7-0 in first game as Mort Cooper pitched a spectacular one-hitter. Billy Herman spoiled a no-hit chance for Cooper by smashing a double in the fifth inning. The Cardinals themselves were blanked 1-0 in the second game although Harry Brecheen, rookie southpaw, held Brooklyn to four hits while thc Redbirds made five. Fred Fitzsimmons, who pitched seven innings before being removed for a pinchhitter, was credited with the victory. Dixie Walker doubled, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on a squeeze bunt by Dee Moore for thc game's only run in the eighth. The Yankees split two games with the Chicago White Sox, who had knocked the Washington Senators out of first place in thc American League on Sunday. The Sox scored five runs in thc enth inning to give a ridiculous inish to the first game, which hey won 10-5. But the American jeague champions let loose a bar---••• • the nightcap ROUNDUP SPORTS Uncle Sam Sends Call for 2 Big League Stars New York, May 31 B—(/I')A cou pie of prospective sluggers fo Uncle Sum — Vcrnon Stephens o thc St. Louis Browns and Ells, worth (Babe) Dahlgrcn of th Phillies — arc giving the maji leagues something to rcmcmbc them by.
