fit FOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, Juno 7, 1943 Allied Bombings Slowly Weakening German Army o Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZlE What justificalon is there for the German claim that even though the Allied invade southern Europe they will find the Axis armies uri- ' conquerable? That assertion was made in a Berlin broadcast, picked up by the Associated Press. A commentator .was discussing invasion ; rtieles in ,.'thc German army organ Die Wchr- macht. He admitted that the Allies might make a landing somewhere but declared they "would not have ithe slightest chance in buttle against the Axis continental arm:les with their millions of well- trained and well-equipped troops." Well, the answer to that is the key to the defeat which the United Nations are now in process oi administering to Herr Hitler The Boche are arguing from a premise which might have been sound a year ago but no longer they settled. holds good. They're clutching at strawh which already have been swept past h dtmeno wthsr. ctmac It is a fact — and one not to be overlooked — that the Fuehrer's most powerful weapon is his army, F'i although what once was the mightiest fighting - machine ever put together is now showing many signs of wear and tear. It's true. too, that the Allies would be up against a terrific task if they were .laced with the necessity of smashing that Nazi army with land forces alone. Hitler might be able to defend himself indefinitely. The point is that he would be sitting inside a great defensive circle. His communications would - be short and he would be able to :Hing his forces in any direction quickly tome the attack. All his warin dustrics would be safe inside :that ring. The Allies, on the other hand, would be stricking them from the outside of the huge perimeter, and the incommunications would .belong and difficult. Such a Ger- 'man defensive position would be just about impregnable. However, that's one of those "might have been" situtnaois. As things stand, the Allies aren't compelled to rush Hitler entirely with land troops. In fact, they can do a goodly portion of the job in a much easier way. That's by bombing. You will note that the Berlin : commentator assumde his master's troops would be "well equipped." He overlooked the fact . that Hitler's iron ring, for defense .against a land army, renders his entire set - up vulnerable to .bombing in view of the shift of the /balance of air - power to the Allies. The United Nations now can reach Hitler's communications and war industries across all parts of the circle: When they achieve their ready are under way even though w c can't force the exact moment of landing. ' Meanwhile, with the Allies holding aerial superiority — and outright supremacy in some areas like the North African theatre — Hitlers Luftwaffe is unable to strike from within his charmed circle at the distant production centers of the United Nations. Our strength grows daily while his decreases. Flashes of Life By The Associated Press Page Diogenes!

JONES Miami, Fla., June 7 (/!') — Kadar, one of the truly secret weapons of this war, has emerged from its tight - spun cocoon of mystery after doing enormous damage to the Axis. Nearly a year ago. when even the name of this amazing radio apparatus was confidnetial. I saw it used by a United States warship to shepherd a straggler back into convoy, to iwecp the seas to make certain no submarine was creeping near for attack, to locate airplanes and landmarks in inky darkness, and to keep a magic eye on ships out of sight over the horizon. These arc valuable results, but they represent the common- Long Live Dallas! Dallas, Texas. — Is dead. Not the town, but Dallas Texas Kellum, 56, who died yesterday.

With this instrument, the Britsih "looked" directly into Germany and Occupied Europe, "saw" the enemy planes shortly after they rose from the ground. And, as the aerial fleets approached England, the vastly outnumbered RAF was at the right place at Ihe right lime to meet the German attacks. The Nazis had not' the slightest inkling of what was going on. They flew again and again to the attack. Then they switched to night bombing. Bul Radar sees as well al night as in daytime, and the result was somewhat the same. "Why do you think the Italian fleet has stayed in hiding'.'" I was asked. "Partly, it was because there was some strange thing its officers couldn't figure out. Thai slrangc thing was Radar. They could never leave porl without the British Navy knowing it and doing something about it." The batllc of Cape Matapan could be named, I was told, "the first great naval baltle of Radar". A British fleet sailed up to an Italian fleet i n inky darkness. Each British ship used R a d a r equipmcnl to selecl a target. The Italians had no idea there was a British vessel within hundreds of miles. All set, the British turned searchlights on the aslounded enemy, blasled ship after ship to the bottom of the Mediterranean, then withdrew. Hours later, with every British vessel miles away, the Italians still afloat fired great salvos in complete confusion. There was nothng around for them to fire upon except other Italian warcraft. My introduclion to Radar came last year. I was an Associated Press correspondent aboard the senior escort vessel on a convoy Irip. I was permlled lo see Ihe Radar equipmenl after a warning lhat nothing could be written about it, nor could its esxticnce be hinted at or its name used. I. learned that Radar transmits waves which keep going if unin- trupted, but rebound if they strike some solid object, even the periscope of a submarine A receiving set calchcs the returning waves and instantly computes the direction and distance of the object One day our convoy was joined by a second group of ships. Our skipper was lold that during the On nights so dark thai Ihe eye could see nothing, radar kepi our skipper informed about every ship in our convoy. We "looked" for miles in every direction to make sure no submarines were creeping up for an attack. Wc checked our aerial escort, frequently watched the passage of planes miles away. Enough can be told about radar to disclose it as Ihe wonder weapon of Ihe war.

Easy Ways to Save Gas Natural gas fuel is the essential "fire power" in the vast production of American armaments and should not be wasted on the home front. Repair leaky hot water faucets and save water and gas, Gas refrigeration is economical. In addition you can get extra savings! don't put hot food in cabinet; do no! open door more often than needed. When cooking over a top burner always use a covered utensil and the moment boiling begins, lower the flame to a point where gentle boiling is maintained. By cooking this way you retain maximum nutrients and use much less gas., Don't use range to heat the kitchen. Never boil a quart of water when you can do with a cupful. Don't turn on range burners unti', needed; turn off immediately when you are through. a D Wat plants are \ising gas today to make ships and tanks and planes—to harden shells that will destroy enemy positions, and for hundreds of other jobs necessary for winning the war. They use gas for the same reason you use it in your home—because it is all concentrated heat, it is clean, always uniform, and can be automatically controlled to any exact temperature. For years this company has been increasing and improving its facilities so that we can supply these war plants— or take care of any extraordinary demands—and still serve you. Our engineers have been working for years with industrial manufacturers, helping them develop new equipment that is as far advanced as your new home appliances are—compared to those of a few years ago. As a result, we now have industrial as well as home equipment doing better work with less gas, Development still goes on, and you may expect to have ready for you by the end of the war even better and more efficient appliances for your home than you have today. We are working day and night with the war industries in the Ark-La-Tex area, but we never forget for a moment our responsibility also to the homes of the communities we serve. Natural ©os is a vital war fuel... help conserve If... use If wisely. HUM*
