The Fifth Army broke through makeshift Nazi defenses above Rome after a fierce three-day battle. And now the Allies arc rounding up hundreds of battle-weary German rear guards left behind by fleeing enemy armies. It's a similar slory elsewhere along the battlcfront. On the Adriatic, the Germans are pulling bnck BO rapidly the advancing Britisli cannot contact even the rear guards. Inland, Eighth Army patrols have entered the abandoned stronghold of Aqulla. To the northwest, British tanks arc pushing towards Terni, imi>or- tanl Industrial center. The British have captured Orvicto. The Prencli arc advancing up the west side of Lake Bolsena. And to the extreme west, the Americans liave captured MagHaiio and driven some nine miles north of Orbetello on the coast. Incidentally, at Orbetello the residents are living in a land of plenty once again. The Germans failed to destroy food dumps when they fled the town. In fact, American doughboys found some 200,000 tons of food In- ^Jluding German milled flours and Biscuits, The Nazis apparently were too surprised to destroy the food. But the Germans did find time to carry off two large artillery pieces which had to be transported by water.

But the Marianas will be no push-over. Saipan, measuring 18 by 9 miles, is heavily wooded. Giant mountains, one towering 1500 feet, march across Its face. Tinlan, only a few miles away, Is similarly forested and covers 20 square miles.

General Marshall snys that since Ihc power of Ihe - now bombers Is so great, the 20th Air Force will not bo confined lo a .single Ihen- ler. The new organisation will remain under a central eonlrol of llic Joint chiefs of staff, with General Arnold, Air Forces chief, directing 11-19 action throughout the world. Qcncrul Marshall explains'. *"Thc planes will be treated as a litmjor task'force ; in the sainc n'lan- ner as the naval lask forces arc directed .against specific objectives." General Arnold says the use of the ships In combat "brings , to actuality nn air forces plan made In advance tor truly global aerial warfare. Arnold halls the'B-20 as a "highly completed an ( i most deadly airplane, callable of delivering the heaviest blows yet known through air power." Arnold continues: "I assume the heavy responsibility for Its employment under Ihc Joint chiefs of staff with full confidence in H.i potential use." Will Speed Victory ' The use of u-20's Arnold says, makes possible the softening up of Japan "very much earlier" than would have been possible with planes hitherto known to combat. Arnold say.s flatly: mighty weapon advances the bomber line a long way." The Army Air Forces chief continues: "The Super Fortress Is not going lo win the war by Itself, nor has anyone thought it would do so. it however, like Us predecessors, strike at the sources of enemy strength and prepare the way for ultimate decision by our wcll- establlshcd team of land, sea and air forces." In what Arnold calls "our strategic thinking", the Flying For- Iresse.s and Liberator will become medium instead of long-range bombers. Arnold says the use of the 13-20 Is Just beginning. lie explains: "It goes directly into battle from Ihe production lines, and we have a lot to learn before Us full power will be developed." Consequently, Arnold says, the frequency of Its use will be, as he phrased 11, "carefully determined" for some time. He added: From this circumstance," he adds, "let our enemies take what comfort they can. while Ilicy can." The first American raid on the Japanese homeland was made on April 18th, 1842. At that time. 16 Mitchell medium bombers commanded by then Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle, took off from the the Japs. Saipan nctually Is the fortress of Ihe group. A commodious harbor, Tnnnpng, indents Its western shore. Clustered around the port are fleet repair and supply facilities. Outside the harbor mouth Is a deep-water lagoon formed by a coral reef that skirts the island. If cither. Tinlan or Saipan tell, Guam probably would be picked up In the shuffle. That dot in the Pacific, which the United States ncquired as a result of action in the Spanish-American War, may be acquired again as a result of action in this war. Tims, Guam, the first American territory lost to the Japs, may be the first American territory regained from the Japs.
