DONOIIUE of Uni led Press Of HOTEL BBE lississippians Assume Op- eralion Under 15-Year Lease Contract 'SBILL KEIDEDBfF.01 President Asks Congress To Stand By Policy Of Stabilization .Throughout the .-.lemjlh ami breadth ol' Euvppe loda> there arc hundreds ol' tiny "bridgeheads" rend}' and waitinL for^thc coming of Allied armies. In Norway., ii; Prance, Relg-itim, Holland, Jugoslavia -ami Greece, bands of men who never admillcd they were beater .have been lighting on since their nations were overrun bj tho Axis invaders. They have played an important part in the yencral war picture in .Ihe past. And when Allied armies move against the continent force they will be called upon lo assume an even greater role Nobody realizes that fact better than the Germans as they seek to shore up their European coastal defenses and slren«lhcn their com munication lines to meet tlic anticipated invasion. The Germans know from experience how effective Ihe guerrilla armies can be. They loimd out in Russia that organized bands o guerrillas operating far in their rear arc almost as grave a threat a: fully equipped divisions of troops moving against their fvont The guerrilla armies in tlic occciipicd nations could be Just as cf feclive as the Soviet euerrillas. providing their activities were coord! iiatcd with the operations of an invading army. GIKMJI) PROMISES PATRIOTS WIM. IllSK General Girauri. HID Frejich leafier in North Africa tms said that hundreds of thousands of patriots will rise lo aid an Allied Invasion He fccl.s that the most appropriate time for the Allies to .strike would be immediately afler Tunisia is cleaned up, when the hopes of the iia- triots arc at a high peak. If .so, the Allied yencral stair must, be making efforts to contact the gucnillas'in the countries selected as targets for our invasion. One evidence of Ihis is seen in German reports that British and Norwegian paratroops have landed in Norway and actually set up headquarters in a remote mountain area. The British and French tried to invade Norway in April of 1040 but were rudely thrown out by tlic Germans mainly because of n lack of preparation and makeshift coordination witli the Norwegian army. The Allies are not likely to make that mistake again. The Norwegian guerrillas apparently are being groomed by the Allied parachute' troops in the role they are lo play when tlic offensive against Europe gels underway. Even more dangerous lo the Axis, potentially, arc the Jugoslav guerrillas who have been carryins; on actual, organized warfare against c the Germans and Italians ever since Jugoslavia fell. The Germans fear that the Jugoslav guerrilhs tvill be an important factor In an Allied Balkan invasion, and have ordered their extermination, even by poison gas if necessary. FRENCHMEN (SETTING AISMS AMt SWTMKS It is a known fact, too, that Allied planes have been dropping arms and supplies lo patriot forces in Fiance. And it is not unlikely that before long, the extent of coordination between the French guerrillas and the Allied general .staff will be put lo a test. Commando raids, on Ihe scale of or even exceeding last August's iiltack on Dieppe-, may be tried against German submarine bases along the French Atlantic coast. Such raids would have a double objective— lo wreck the source of I lit* U-boat menace, and lo French underground activity with general Allied strategy for the main invasion to come. One of the big problems In maintaining active guerrilla warfare within nn occupied country is that of morale. The patriots 'cannot be expected lo keep fighting indefinitely, unless they know that some day within the foreseeable future their efforts will bear fruit. Should there be a long lag in Allied offensive operations after the conquest of Tunisia, there is a strong possibility that guerrilla operations in the oppressed nations wjll dwindle in effectiveness. On the other hand, the Allies arc aware that premature uprisings " by the guerrillas might react lo their disadvantage. The situation demands delicate handling if these valuable assets to the United Nations cause arc lo be used to their best advantage. When the time for invasion comes, they must be held in readiness for Instant action, coordinated with landing oiieralions. Guerrilla bands operate when the enemy is formally engaged on an active fighting front and his attention diverted from the rear. Bridges blown nj> could delay the flow of German icjiiforcenienls (o a threatened beachhead and give the landing forces time to consolidate. Derailed Iroop trains, destroyed ammunition dumps, guerrilla raids on enemy headquarters, effective sniping and sabotaged water supplies would contribute enormously to the success of an Allied Invasion. And if plans work out as expected, the patriot armies of Europe might be fighting alongside |>owerful Allies on their homeland before the Summer is gone.
