Bases occupied since the Italian attack on Greece have put R. A. F. planes and the British fleet within close striking distance of Rome. Other Italian cities, includ- ing nearby Naples, have had their first bombings. Center of modern Rome lies between two famous ruins of the ancient city—the Pantheon and the crumbling Colosseum. From the balcony of the Venice Palace, a few blocks up "the Via Dell'Im- pero from the historic Forum, Mussolini now runs his own one- Nearby is the winding Tiber. hose bridge and shores were once .lefended by storied Horatlus.

Military objectives in the city proper are few the principal ones railroad station and Macao army barracks in the north- rase section. Close 'by are' many ;overnment buildings, the Royal Palace, and University City, all likely to be damaged if bombing begins. On Rome's outskirts, however, are air fields, troop concentrations, power stations and other objec- dves. INDIANAPOLIS. Ind.

Their sparkling brilliance helps BRUCE CATTON IN WASHINGTON BY BRUCE CATTON Courier News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, De<& 24. — One reason why the- President won't get -the .help-Britain business on a "loan or lease" basis, without a sharp fight in Congress is that the isolationist leaders • •• are still unconvinced Britain's supply problem is truly desperate. To support their criticism they cite a couple of' rather odd facts. One is" that American munitions exports to; Great Britain for the first. 10 months of _ this year—by State Department ''.figures — total just $134.962,563.j For all; of 1939, which of course ; 'included • nine months of. peacetime , trade,. the figure' is $31,000,000. The isolationists'suggest 'that 'the smartness- of-those; .'figures : can't- be explained ' '-either;': '..fay lack of Darkest estimate of British merchant ship losses generally credited is that they have been running around 60,000 tons a week for six months. That would make a total loss, for the last six months, of l'.560,000 tons—or less than half of the tonnage of the fleet which, by Churchill's .speech, had come into British hands because; of the conquest of Norway, Denmark, Holland, and France. '•In; view of this, ask the isolationists, just' where is the pressing 90-dnys-or-ruin urgency?
