HOPE STAR, HO M, ARKANSAS Friday, June 11, 1943 Italy in State of Confusion As Pantelleria Surrenders ~~ —— — - - — ' ' Analysis of the News by Mackenzie Editorial Comment Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Cable. By DeWITT MacKENZIE Surrender of the Italian 'island .fortress of Pantelleria under bombardment from air and sea represents first blood for the Allies in their all - out aerial offensive against the Axis. ' This strong point in the Mediterranean bottle-neck between Sicily and the African mainland literally has been blasted into submission. Troops are going ashore without suffering the terrible losses in men and materiel which would inevitably have attended invasion without such preparation. So far so good. It now remains to be seen whether this first triumph really represents the efficacy of this method of attack. It's a thrilling moment, for we are witnessing a historic experiment. Time alone can prove the point, but today's success certainly should boost the stock of British Prime Minister Churchill's dry remark recently before the joint session of Congress that the idea of bombing the Axis into submission was worth trying, anyway. The submission of Pantelleria removes a grave menace to Alliec shipping from the narrow channe which the Allies must control for further operations in the Meditcr ranean. This v o 1 c a n ic island which Mussolini fortified heavily few years ago, is small in size bu big in importance. It provides a stepping stone the direction of II Duce's unhappy country. As things have been going, one would expect to see bombing of the great islands of Sicily and Sardinia stepped up now. They may be the next objectives to come under the rod. If the Allies continue as they have started, they will proceed methodically with their operations. They will go as fast as is feasible, but won't be rushed. Naturally everybody is looking across the islands toward Italy. , r Secretary of State Cordell Hull may have been speaking with prophetic voice when he referred yesterday to "the timely end to which he (Mussolini) is rapidly approaching." Actually, while we want to sec- Italy in Allied hands as soon as < possible, it already is so battered in morale that it's far from the threat it used to be. From the standpoint of security, the Allies conflict, but it doesn't take much nind reading to figure out that he is regretting America's participation. ^Mussolini didn't expect that \vhcn he rushed to stab France in the back so as to get aboard the Boche band - wagon before Hitler forced the Allies to surrender unconditionally. Anyway, Pellizzi remarks sadly: "It is now too late, far too late to turn back and think over the facts and proposals of that (early) period."

Just by pointing at a parked sedan and whispering among themselves, police complained, they attracted enough curious passersby to halt traffic four times yesterday. "And I thought I knew crowds," sighed Patrolman Jim Polk. "Why. peonle were even there were snakes in the back seat of that car." Four Clubs Are Battling for Middle Positions By JUDSON BAILEY Associated Press Sports Writer The middle of the Amcrcian League standings is as jammed as the middle of Times Square on a Saturday night. There are four clubs that can' play a game without changing their positions, or sometimes can't even remain idle without moving. In two days the Dcro Tigers have dropped from, third to sixth the Chicago White Sox have risen from fifth to third, the Boston Red Sox have advanced from seventh to fifth and Wednesday the Philadelphia Athletics took temporary possession of third place without even playing. Jimmy Dykes' White Sox have been responsible for much of this disorder by winning nine of their last 12 games and parading rh'li 1 up the standings from seventh to their present position in thiru place, four games back of the New York Yankees and one and a half behind the second place Washington Senators. The Sox, once known for their feeble hitting, walloped the Detroit Tigers yesterday 11-5 with a 17-hit offensive that started with four runs in the first inning and finished with five in the ninth. The Yankees meanwhile paddled the Athletics 8-2 with clusters of hits to boost Spud Chandler to his sixth victory and hand Jesse Florcs, the rookie sensation who won seven successive games, his third setback in a row. The Senators lost ground and a 2-0 decision at Boston as Oscar Judd pitched three-hit ball for his Ruth the Fan Turn About New York — Now, it's gorillas who have to be protected from humans.

Mussolini's country has become a pain in the neck to Hitler, and the United Nations won't find it an undiluted blessing, either. The words "too late" are running through beleaguered Italy like the refrain of a theme song. Radio commentators are preparing the public for the storm whose black clouds are billowing across the Medtierrane'an toward the Roman peninsula. Latest to go on the air with prophetic gloom is Camillo Pellizzi, national councillor, who says that "there is at present a general state of confusion which. cannot last long." The war has entered its second stage, he explains, and many issues relied upon at the beginning now look different. Al the outset it looked as though the war would be confined to Etirop'j. but it became a world conflict. The councillor doesn't amplify that last remark about a world It's the war, he said; with help sixth success against one defeat Pete Fox hit the only home rur of the day for the Red Sox' firs score.

The verdict —first gaainst 7.ivc in a home ring in nearly four years — precipitated one of the wildest fight scenes seen at Forbes field in a long time. Newspapers and programs were showered into Ilii! ring and the fans let g'o with a deafening chorus of. boos that lasted fully 20 minutes. Even the slugging LaMoUa's face was wreathed in astonishment and a fight announce'.- hurriedly made a re-cheek to determine whether some mistake ivvJ not been made. But the verdict held — the judges splitting their votes and Referee Al Grayber casting the third and deciding ballot. Fritzie, who is 30 years old. expressed downright disappointment and asserted in the dressing room that he thought he won easily. He indicated he would ask the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission to reverse Ihe decision.
