It is undoubtedly true that the German Air Force is unable to successfully oppose our aerial operations, including the bombing of Germany. While this a correct picture of the over-all situation, one should not conclude that our aviators meet no opposition. Recently, Lieutenant Edward Witty, of Ohio, who participated in a vicious battle over Leipzig, told of the worst forty seconds I ever spent in my whole life" in which his B-17 squadron was ripped to bits by a suicidal attack of German fighter planes, which shot down six of eleven American bombers. While comparison of German resistance to air attacks today with that of a year ago reveals the dwindling power of the Luftwaffe, the bomber crews go on no pleasure jaunts when they head over the Reich.

Viceroy of India, recently rejected a request for an interview by Mohandas K. Gandhi, saying that, because of their sharp differences, nothing could be gained by a meeting but that he would consider any definite and constructive policy. Lord Wavell told the Indians that preliminary work could be done on the framing of a constitution but that they must first reach a "genuine agreement" among themselves for a transitional government. He added that the position of the British Government remains as it was when Sir Stafford Cripps tried to reach and agreement with the Indianas in 1942. The lack of unity between the peoples who live in India is not cured by the political demands of a group of intellectual leaders. In fact, the suspicion exists that the unrest in India reflects the ambition of these rival groups rather than any indigenous demand from the jieople of that land. r'j FOR FORTI "X K-II I 'XTERS.
