DAMAGED SHIP BACK IN PORT Boston C1 The frelKhter Africander, formerly the Itnllnn ship Aussa, taken under the Ship Seizure Act, returned to port damaged yesterday after putting out on a defense mission Nov. 17. Other than admitting the vessel had been damaged, the Waterman Lines, which control the S,734-ton ship, which flies the Panama flag, declined information Immediately. The Africander was seized by the United States during the roundup of Axis vessels in American ports last March. She had been badly damaged by the crew at that time. After being repaired and armed the vessel again was placed in service. ! Waterfront sources said that the damage would indicate that had hit an obstruction. WAR ANALYSIS.

BIMl'HON phase of the fight was near a conclusion favorable to British hopes. There were indications, despite sharply conflicting British" and Axis accounts of what was happening within the' trap, that German-Italian forces were making desperate attempts to break out westward for retreat into the mountainous Libyan hump. A Cairo announcement said To- bruk's relieved garrison and com rades who cut their way to the El Duda junction have now struck out westward from the Tobruk front. That means they are endeavoring to clear up the deep ring of Axis fortifications built - up about the port, leaving the mopping-up of Axis resistance centers east of the Tobruk-Rezegh line to other forces. .

Matruh, British railhead on the Egyptian coast, is 200 miles eastward of Tobruk. Sidi Barrani, a similar highway advance base, once held by an Invading Italian army in Kgypt, is only no milcd west of Matruh. , Seaborne Supplies- Assured With Tobruk firmly held by the British and its nearby siege zona cleared of AxU forces, however, direct British seaborne contact with Alexandria would be possible. It would free the desert highways and the Matruh-Alexandria rail road of much of the war traffic burden to sustain the British westward drive. A hammering westward attack from Tobruk along the main road, which is under flre of British naval guns virtually all the way to Derna, also would be calculated to force German tank concentration in that area, and thereby lessen their availability for relief of their trapped Axis comrades behind the Tobruk-Rezegh line. For these reasons the start of a British westward coastal push from Tobruk marks the inception of the second phase of the Libyan battle on British initiative, even before re sults of desperate tank battles in the Rezegh region are fully known. Tobruk, where the British navy managed to land tanks at night for use of the besieged garrison, is as vital for quick reinforcement of the Rezegh line as for a base to sup port a drive at Derna. Tobruk Lives Not Wasted British determination to hold Tobruk for such ultimate use, even when Wavell's army was being hustled back to the Egyptian border by Axis armies, is now plain. The garrison at Tobruk was ordered to hold out at all costs for that reason, relying on its sea supply route. British lives lost in that prolonged siege were not wasted if the port can now be converted into a springboard, for a driving attack to pen Axis Libyan armies into the mountain hump west of Derna and north of Bengasi. There is still no British word of the whereabouts of the column tar to the south aimed at cutting Axis communications west of the hump. Rome has reported it within almost striking distance of the. Tripoli-Bengasi road but now hints it has been itself cut off in the desert. If it is still moving westward and reaches its objective, coupled with the westward drive from Tobrjk and the British patrol of the Mediterranean, a siege of the Libyan hump seems certain to develop. FBI TO TRAIN ISLAND POLICE St. Thomns, V. T. UX! Tho United States Fcdrrnl Bureau of Investigation has initiated a special course of training for the Virgin Islands police force, it was announced yesterday. Arnold W. Miller. FBI agent from Corpus Christl, Tex., and Washington, D. C, arrived here recently to take charge of the training, which includes instruction in anti-espionage and anti-sabotage methods, and modern scientific techniques. Other specialists will give lectures in their fields. The Virgin Islands, American-owned territories lying closest to lCurope, are the locale of important defense bases. A Marine air field r.nd submarine base are at St. Thomas. An Army air field is under construction in the neighboring island of St. Croix, and a listening observation post is being estab lished.

VP) Upon the memory of Mrs. J. A. Dempsey, clerk at the Monroe Hotel, police relied yesterday in their efforts to determine whether more than one person died in a fire that destroyed the hotel Friday night. The body of one victim, William Foy, 50, Chicago, an electrician, has been recovered. Police said they believed he was the only one to burn to death. Efforts to account for all the hotel's guests were made difficult because records had been destroyed by the fire. Mrs. Dempsey, however, volunteered to supply the names of the guests from memory, naming 19 persons unaccounted for. Later police found 11 of them. They said the others probably had gone to work yesterday without reporting they had escaped from the hotel. a 6,000 Americans Enlisted in RCAF Ottawa (U.H) Approximately 6,-000 United States citizens have enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force since the outbreak of war, Air Force headquarters said yesterday. Of the total, officers said, about 600 are instructors and staff pilots. The others are air crew. (Air Vicemarshal Harold Edwards, officer commanding the Canadian fighter squadrons in Great Britain, said In an interview that the number of Americans joining the RCAF had become a "problem". He stressed, however, that Americans were welcome in the Force.) Aide to Girl Scouts Quits Lockport Post Lockport The resignation of Miss Mary F.
