BRITISH PURSUE ROMMEL Today's War Commentary Blitz Of Berlin Reich Capita! Faces Greatest. Test By THOMAS J, DONOHlIt of United Press Tim Gorman capacity to endure the hammer blows of unrelenting' air assault now is boiim put to a tost greater Uiun the people of Britain ever experienced. One is inclined to wonder about the thoughts of Herlin- crs after taking 2000 tons of Allied Ijomljs within the brief space of 48 hours. The assaults Saturday and Monday nights were among' the greatest ever directed against any city, shading by far the heaviest German attacks against London. As n result, it would not be surorising if (ho German government evacuated Berlin lo esraue Hie terrible rain ol death from the skies CAN KK'ftMN "TAKE IT", TOO? ' ^ In the Summer ol 191(1, London won the regulation of being able lo take it. The question now Is can Berlin take It as well? Paradoxically, Londoners were able to endure the 1940 blilz because they slood alone with their backs against a wall. Their psychology was such that they weie prepared to fight in Ihc streets and squares if need be and go down fighting, convinced of Die righteousness of their cause. A .symbol kept London 8 olng ac il kept going Coventry and all the other bomber British cities and the people of the entire country. It was the symbol of free people against tyranny, liberty against slavery, and it carried them through. Oh the oilier hand, Ihe German people—the people of Berlin- have nothing, to .sustain them save fear as the Allied bombardment grows in intensity. Fear a! Ihe Gestapo drives them through the'blasted streets into still-smouldering factories. Pi'onarjanda-lnblillcd. fear of defeat keeps them at their work benches. They are gripped by fear of the German government as much as by fear of British bombs. MORALE OF GERMANS WOULD OIIO1 1 Hence, il is not difficult to estimate the conscQUcnces if Ihc'Nazi government .deserts bomb-gored Berlin. The effects of such a move on German morale might be great. Tlie people would witness the sight of their government fleeing the city which Herman Gocring once boasted never would be bombed. It would be a clear sign then to the people of the Reich thai Germany is being driven into a corner. And it wonlrt 'be proof that the heart of the German empire was withering under mortal blows that eventually would spread their paralyzing clfcct all the way out lo the rim of the Nazi battle-front. The British government seriously, considered evacuating London during the 1940 blitz, even as the Russian government forsook Moscow for Kuibyshev during the great German .offensive. But those moves merely were outward signs of the British and Russian dclenninntion to continue Ihc fight from new headquarters. The Nazis beat their breasts and accuse the British of "terror" atlacks on Ihe population,of Berlin. Bui they know as well as the j British that Berlin is^a'"legitimate military tared—one of lhe\ most ^ important in all Germany. •<•' , ..: •_ : " v • NUMEROUS IMPORTANT TARGETS New U. S.

Important tool-maklno plants cluster the northern part of the city, and: nearby.lies much of Germany's tcxlile industry. On the southern edge of Berlin is Tcmplehof airport, one of the biggest in the world, from which radiates most of Germany's air lines. : . And in all directions from Berlin sprawl the line German auto- bahnen, or highways, oVcr which pass many liooos and supplies lo the various fronts, and materials to and from the facldries. The German government buildings are located almost in the center of tlie city, just off Unter Den Linden. Pull details of the lalest saturation raids on Berlin are not yet in But it. is virtually certain that British reconnaissance will show tre- menclous destruction not only to the sprawling factory areas of Berlin but to the government section as well. •: • • If Hitler's government cjiilUs the capital, there is small likelihood that il will announce that fact to the world. For wherever it goes it will be harried and hounded by Allied bombs until it is cornered and brought to justice for ite crimes against the world.
