VOLUMK XI,—NO. 55. Blylhevllle Dally News Blythevllle Courier today's War Commentary Siberian Bases Allies Need, But May Not Gel Them By THOMAS J. UONOIIUE *t IfnlUd I',MS . The speech of the Witish Prime Minister be lore' tin, joint BOSSIOII of Ihe American'CongrL'ss veslmhV some interesting avenues for .siieculnlioii. ' One of the iulrigiiiiiff ruvolvus •iroinid l,k pressed desire'for » conference with I'remwr s . ,« «.i,i,i ties in neatly with two other recent (level™, u ,,i<• , )y scattered piirts of the K lol- <ltu '°l»ne"ls irom wide- The first was Japan's strange warning (o Soviet Kussla not lo let the United Slnte.'i Siberian air bases. The second was the arrival in Moscow ot the former American Ambassador, Joseph B Uavies, with a secret message from President Roosevelt for Stalin Running throughout Mr. Church- Ill.', speech yeslerday there was an undercurrent almost of annoyance because Slalln lias not yst seen fit to meet the heads of the two great English-speaking democracies. There also wa.s a veiled lint— nolhing more — that unless the Soviet premier agrees to a meeting of minds with Mr. church- ill and Mr. Koosevcll, Hie western allies might confine their European time to aerinl efforts lor some bombardment. Wants Ground Action Slalin is known to feel, that all, enough. He attack alone is not 'wants no less than a smashing ground attack—and one that will "stick—into Western Europe preferably France. Now, it Is entirely possible that Davies mission lo Moscow is closely connected with this whole situation. It is generally accepted Ihal Davies is bearing a formal invitation from Mr. Roosevelt to meet with him and Mr Churchill at sonic undisclosed place. The topic, of such a proposed conference is the "X" in thc equation. That brings up Ihc Tokyo radio warning to Russia yesterday Could It be that tho democracies actually arc asking Russia for Siberian air bases 'from which lo destroy Japan? It will be recalled that Churchill said the biggest Allied problem is not the creation of armies nor Ihe vast output of munitions and aircraft. These. .lie said, already are In full swing. Jtc staled the main problem as the ""application of.ithese .forces to the.cnemy" ;AH our efforts, ho'said, must-be dominated by the supreme object of coming' Ui. grips with the enemy.- Since distance .still is the biggest '**S'- or '!Ml!.?Wtig agnlijstia.smash- Ing' attack on Jaflarf,' the- riuestlon of Siberian bases looms forefront/ • ' .. Possession of those: bases bV American tilers would go far -toward bringing to fruition Church- ills announced objective of laying the cities and munitions centers of Japan in ashes., '-', It may be 'wide of the mark to speculate on this possibility, but . that Tokyo warning to Russia probably was more than a shot in tne dark. The Japs : arc' aware of what it would mean should Rus- sJn allow the United States to use those bases in Siberia which arc ivillim easy bomber range of Tok- Warning to Russia TIic Japanese announcer was careful to point out that relations between Japan .and Russia "at present'-note u, at phrasc H _ are on what he called "the basis of neutrality Then he followed that f rliUcl " cnl with Iho warning that If Russia ever put her Siber"* viic (I Us [ I of United "Nothing To Conceal," Sheriff Says Answering Peonage Charge Sheriff Hale Jackson named defendant in a snjrjQo diltnil j, c Sllil riled by counsel for James nuchnn- an, escaped Negro trusty HOW In Chicago, today answered charges thai the Negro was held under conditions of peonage with an in- vilalion for an investigation by the I'BI or Uepiirtmcnt of .Justice.
