THURSDAY, MAY 14, 1942 BLYTHEVILLE, (AUK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVBw SECOND FRONT? Menacing Time and Tide oi Events May Prompt Allies To Risk Grand Assault ""Now or Never" on Nazis in Western Europe, Military Experts Believe Suin iner time Heralds A Change In Your Perfume Ami Makeup WASHINGTON (UP) _ Women riveters soon may be commonplace in warptane factories. Government officials believe that thousands of woimn riveters will be needed Lo manufacture the 185,000 airplanes projected for 194243, and that training of women in riveting will permit transfer of men to the fighting forces or to war jobs requiring more strength. "The main job in airplane assembly is riveting, along with counter-sinking, dimpling and bucking." Thelimi McKelvey, chief of Wai- Production Board women's labor division, said in an article in the Commerce Department publication "Domestic Commerce." Other War Jobs "Much of this work could be clone by women if they were trained for it, and the labor division of the War Production Board says that training for 'women in riveting may solve the employment problem of the rapidly expanding aircraft industry." Other war industries also will have an increasing need for women, Miss McKelvey said. "To produce 60,000"planes, 45,000 tanks, 30,000 anti-aircraft guns, and 8,000,000 tons of shipping in 1942, our present war labor force must be tripled," she stated. "It will be impossible to triple the number of workers now engaged in war production without calling upon women for all the help they cten give.

Buyer, Margaret —in— Charles Sullivan mirnent For love' Shorts arid News By THOMAS M. JOHNSON NKA Service Military Writer WASHINGTON.— Recent events are seen by informed opinion here as pressing the United Nations inexorably to take one of the yreat calculated risks of military history. An attempt, largely British but with substantial American help, to land on the European continent and establish the longed-for, second front some time this summer becomes increasingly likely with the fall of Corregidor and the imminent German effort to crush Russia. NAZI PRODUCTION IS A IJ1G THREAT The Nazi drafts upon the Italian, Rumanian, Hungarian and other armies for Russian-front cannon fodder, if only for use in lesser engagements, moan more German troops can be released from the main scenes of action. But more serious to the Allied cause are Germany's drafts on subject nations' slave-labor. and other moves to increase the production of war material for Hitler throughout the German-dominated continent. This threatens to reach such volume that the Nazis may build up a strength in weapons and fortifications that will be hard to beat—ever. This danger seems real to expert American opinion, and must have been discussed in the recent conferences for which Harry Plop- kins and General George C. Marshall flew to Britain. In any case, the American views were stated with the same clarity, candor and when needed, tenacity, that helped General Pershing win over Allied leaders. British authorities here voice admiration for the solid qualities of our Army's Chief of Staff. It is generally believed that he has made an important contribution to the determining for this summer of an Allied grand strategy. TIME MAY DICTATE ALLIED STRATEGY If the United Nations were given the choice, 1943 rather than 1942 might be the preferred year for a grand offensive against the Germans in western Europe. But time often dictates strategy, and ihe hands of the clock point toward 1942 for two reasons: (1) If German industry this summer must meet only the demands, of land warfare against Russia and the Near East, it can probably pile up in addition such a reserve that we never could excel it by the wide margin needed for victory. (2) If the Red Army or the less- strong British Near East Army should cave under Nazi blows, Japan is expected by many authorities to attack Siberia. If that attack succeeds, we .lose our one remaining good chance, 'once !our Alaskan bases are adequate, to deal hard blows at the heart of Japan. Also the Japanese, if they could be based in Siberia, would Attacking- from bases in the British Isles, United Nations' forces would "have iiu umbrella over heads"—the K.A.F. their SPRINGFIELD, 111.

Writing In Uic Illinois" health department monthly pnblicivtlon, the widely-known Chicago physiologist described obesity as "an injurious luxury" and said Washington representatives could accomplish the twin-uood of niisinj; money and making people hwlthler with a "fat lax. 1 "In addition lo brinnlni; in fat t ivs," Carlson said, "this be as effective in si uninu as i\nv greatly improve their position for attack on Alaska and thence our Northwest. Corrcgidor's loss strengthens the menace to Russia by strengthening Japan's southward supply lines, helping to free her lor northward moves. SECOND FRONT NEEDED TO HELP RUSSIA How can we make sure that Russia does not crack? The supplies we can send this summer may not be enough. But Allied troops—even air forces—are held at arm's length by distance and Soviet suspicion, other way to help Russia is by drawing from her front enough German troops—and particularly enough guns, airplanes and tanks —to swing the pendulum of battle. And the only way to do that is to force the Germans to supply one other major front where fighting is intense. That is the grim logic of events. And if this summer brings real danger of Russia cracking, that logic is likely to result in a desperate yet carefully planned attempt to land an expeditionary force on the continent. Whatever spot may be .chosen,-,-.several have already been discussed.

The prelude may' be a series of Commando raids all along the coasts from Trond- hf'im to St. Nnxaire. bumfuzzling the Germans and picking a soft spot. There, at the chosen moment, would be hurled a force that might ultimately total thirty divisions, chosen largely from the two million shock troops now in the British Isles. Wherever they land, they would be accompanied by "Free" forces—Norwegian, Belgian, Dutch. French. U. S. TO SUPPLY The only CRUSHING STRENGTH j The British would be encouraged to bear the brunt by American aid. future and present. This aid would be strongest in aircraft, —heavy and medium borabers now being flown across, lighters that soon may be. Crushing ail strength would be needed, for it is. estimated that every Allied division would be opposed by two German divisions. But one mail reason why the British Isles arc the best American base for attack is that we would "have an umbrella over our heads"—the R.A.F If the effort succeeded, we woulc reinforce it, preparing for a bigger follow-through in the spring But it might bring on a battle: unprecedented in history. The Nazis might strike back through the air with a counter-invasion of Britain. Inside: Germany, pretty safe from the R.A.F.. they are reported to have hidden fleets of gliders bearing twelve to twenty- foiu; men each. These gliders would be released at night, high enough and far enough away so that they woulc! descend Jcssly. The crews arc especially trained to strike at sensitive points, especially power stations and lines, preparing for a German counter-landinsr. j CRACK TROOPS NKKDEU TO PROTECT ENGLAND Which helps explain some British reluctance to risk the difficult Channel crossing without leaving more behind them than their two million Home Guards, who arc not frontline troops nor equipped for every contingency. Also, the Germans could be expected to mass all their .submarines to attack the allied shipping used to transport invading forces. And this, even if the invasion succeeded, might starve out Britain. Shipping is still the United Nations' great weakness, a;; .some nnval authorities have warned. Jf either Na/.i counter-stroke .succeeded, wo would have to give up hope of beating Hitler (unless his empire collnpscd of its own weights, withdraw from Europe, and wait until the Navy could build the; ships and especially the aircraft, carriers to beat Japan—if Hitler let us wait that long. ;imrlinc Leasure, of Blytheville, y Magistrate T.
