Of course, the possibility of n considerable lapse of time before major invasions occur doesn't necessarily mean Uiat we shall not see some fairly quick action. It's possible that Pantelleria and Lam• pedusa and even the bigger Italian islands of Sicily and Sardinia might come under assault by landing forces at any time. Still, it seems .fairly obvious that the Allied command is proceeding methodically and doesn't intend to be rushed. British Prime Minster Churchill says it i evident that amphibious operations of a peculiar complexity and hazard on a large scale are approaching."

Probably the prime minister doesn't know when the major act- on will take place. It must depend on developments. U might come quickly and it might drag on for months. Just to illustrate what I mean, probably a great deal will depend on what happens along the Russian front. If Hitler should launch a great offensive suddenly, lhat might easily send the Allied invasion machine into high gear. We then should have the all highest between two fires. In other words, while the Allied strategy is directed along very certain lines the hour to hour tactics, of the fighting front must be controlled by circumstances. So far as concerns Pantelleria. that small but powerful Italian fortress stands right in the middle of the narrow channel between Sicily- and the African mainland. It must be knocked out before Allied shipping can operate freely in Parachutes to Play Important Role in War (U. S. Navy Photo From NBA) Beautiful but treacherous are the mountains of Attu where Americans ate attacking Japs. Since sides of these volcanic peaks are too difficult to scale, our forces presumably advanced through uassyges between them. Enemy snipers hid in these hills to attack U. S- troops.

Lampedusa, which lies not tar from Pantelleria. also is a thorn in the side of water - borne traffic, although in a less degree. The great islands of Sicily and Sardinia are a particular menace to the narrow ship lane which runs between Sicily and Tunisia. For that reason it. is logical to believe that the Allies will deal with them before proceeding to bigger problems. Finally, in considering the question of time, required for major amphibious operations, we mustn't overlook the vastness of the preparations required. It takes a huge fleet to move even a moderate sized army to the scene of action, ', and keep it supplied wilh mnni- 1 lions and food. It also demands great aerial and naval support.

Parachutes have been frequently used in North Africa and the Solomons to drop men, food and equipment behind enemy lines. Parachutes have been employed to obtain meteorological information Parachute flares are used to light up enemy targets. Col. Keith F. Adamson, commanding Southwestern Proving Ground, one of the field establish ments of the Ordnance Department Army Service Forces, revealed to day that parachutes are now being used in conjunction with [ragmen tution bombs. Block busters plunge to earth a maximum speed to blast enemy in duslrial, railroad, water power and port'facilities. The parachute bomb is used for special missions. I drifts down slowly to explode ac curately at any desired distanc above the ground. A cloud of fragmentation bomb has a particularly demoralizing el feet upon the enemy. Army Ordnance parachutes wer originally made of high tenacil rayon. But this material entcre the critical class and became h creasingly difficult to obtain. There was not enough of it to supply all branches of the Army. Ordnance engineers worked out a solution. N u m e r o u s field tests showed that semi-high tenacity rayon could be usetl satisfactorily. A serious bottleneck was therefore broken. Approximately twelve million pounds of high tenacity rayon was made available for other vital military uses. At the same lime, by using a 515-inch loom, lavings of material made it possible to manufacture an additional 920.000 parachutes for 1943. This summer, our enemies will be acutely sky-conscious. They will undoubtedly see strange clouds, strange clusters of deadly parachute fragmentation bombs.

South Pacific — (Delayed) — Five Naval Medical Corpsmen who, serving with Marine troops in the South Pacific, risked their lives to aid wounded Marines in the landings on Gavulu last August 7, recently were citod here for meritorious conduct in action against the enemy. They were Pharmacist Males First Class Arthur E. Lemasters, Williamsburg, W. Va.; William F. Spears,• Paragould, Ark., Claude Creech, La Grange, N. C.; L. L. Linse, Springview, Neb., and Robert Lynos, 'Newark, N. J. Formal presentation was made at a ceremony on the parade ground near here by the commander of Marine forces in the South Pacific. In the case of Spears, the cita- lon read: "While serving with a Marine battalion durng the attack on Ga- vulu, Solomon Islands, August 7 and 8, Spears volunlarily accom- oanied patrols engaged in mopping up enemy positions in order to reach and aid the wounded. Though constantly 1 exposed to heavy Japanese fire, he disregarded his own safely and demonstrated the highest degree of professional skill and courage under extremely adverse conditions. His action resulted in saving many ives, and contributed imrneasur- bly to the general morale. His oncluct was in keeping with Hie ighest tradition of the United tales Naval Service." 1 Point Clabber Girl POWDER *£ 19c f|e§ Brand INSECT SPRAY Qt.
