By MAX HILL ' The'Axis 'still is worrying —and guessing—'about what sort of an attack the Allies intend to launch against Germany or stmimer In Europe. Italy this "Unidentified but evidently competent observers in Switzerland told Thomas F. Hawkins of the Associated Press that in their opinion the constant and devastating air attacks on Germany might well be the answer. Germany herself is the ''second bombs dropped on her vitally se- sential factories and transportation lines. It ih no wonder Germany must husband her remaining strength. Our fliers have returned from their raids over the Ruhr with stories of the damage done, but the best evidence that Germany is being hurt — and hurt badly — comes from the Axis radio itself, and from the neutral capitals of Bern and Stockholm. Dispatches from Swiss correspondents hi Germany disclosed that the entire Ruhr valley now is virtually a military zone, with authorities constantly more concerned over the effects of the incessant bombing. This ih not only because of what it does to production. Civilian morale is bound to drop under such a pounding, and even Hitler won't be able to maintain a solid home front unless the Nazis find some better answer to the attacks than they have thus far. It has been some time since front" — not some distant coastal point, from which it would take months and thousands of lives to actually penetrate into the Nazis homeland. -.''"''. CThe lasOvar finally was decided fcy the crushing weight of American production. We are less than a month away from the time it took us to break Germany in 1918, and it doesn't appear such a collapse is likely again in the immediate future. , But our output now dwarfs that of the previous war in every respect, and from London last night came the encouraging news that production of munitions in Great Britain for the first three months of 1943 •was 40 per cent over the same period in 1942. . Axis production, on the other hand, is bound to be on the downgrade because of the tons of Georing promised the Germans an invincible defense against such air attacks, but it has been less than a year that the Axis was doing plenty of tub-thumping over victories in the Mediterranean. Just a few quotes taken from the Rome radio of last summer are enough to show how definitely the picture has changed in our favor. They follow: "It is now clear to everyone that the Mediterranean and the adjoining areas in the Middle East constitute the focal zone of the war. ;taly dominates that zone."

June 24 (IP) —There will be ammunition for the hunters who can show a need for it this year, government officials said today, but the gasoline shortage may yet save many a bounding buck. Officials who said plans were under way to provide ammunition for civilain sportsmen, and to "see that it goes to those who need it,' declined to say how distribution would be controlled. It was indicated, however, that each Hunter's present supplies would be considered in fixing his allotment. Total stocks in the hands ""of j sportsmen are believed to be fairly that som e are stocked for the eason while others haven't any thing. The War Production Board VPB1 stepped in • nearly two months ago to protect the remain- g supplies on the market with an der sharply limiting sales and quiring authorizations to make irchases. WPB said production of shotgun iclls and other ammunition use- il to sportsmen was "huge," with eel being substituted for brass nd copper, but reported that al- lost all of it had to be channeled o the military services. The limitation order set up quo- ns — 25 shotgun shells each quar- er. for instance — for "essential ivilian users," including defense heifers feeder Now the German radio observe sourly: "What the population o these areas (the Ruhr) has had t endure lately is unbelievable." It is quite possible likely i a better word — that this is onl the beginning, and that attacks i the future will be even greatei Broadcasts from London to th conquered peoples of France, Bo gium and Holland have urged them to move away from potential ta gets, such as factories which pr duce war materials. These broadcasts have told the Germans as well as their helpless .'slave that this is only the start. Perhaps that is i:he reason the Germans finally have begun to admit the great damage and terror of their ppeople. They must prepare them for what is to come. lant guards, other law enforce- nent officers, farmers and ranch- rs, who get authorizations automatically. All others seeking authorizations ore required to show essential need and WPB hasn't considered recrea- ional hunting in that category. Meanwhile. Ira N. Gabrielson, the Wildlife Division Director, said sportsmen who can solve the gaso- ine as well as the ammunition problem can expect good hunting when the season rolls around.
