Always in the past, llic Na/l and Fascist warlords were calling the tune. They exuded confidence and breathed llic very spirit of attack. Whenever they met, the Allied nations would hold their breath, waiting for Ihe blow to fall. The dictators seldom failed them. They first met at Brenner on March 18lh. 1940, three months before Italy's entrance into the war, and mapped their plans for the great German in the west which was to begin on June 8th. They traveled lo Munich on June 18th that, year lo discuss the request of prostrate Prance for an armistice and to agree to accept it On October 4th. 1940, the dictator. 1 came again to Brenncro where Ihcj gave Marshal Rodolfo Graziani his orders .for the ill-fated ;. offensive against Suez. /On January 20th, 1041.

'Hie world was beginning to believe that England was done, thai the Berlin meeting of. Ihe dictators would be followed swiftly by an invasion of Britain. Kcceivc Victory .News Five months later, on June 2nd. 1041. the dictators met again at Brcnnero to celebrate the conquest o( the Balkans and receive the news Ihal Brilaln had surrendered Crelc. On August 30lh. 10-11, Hitler and Mussolini met v.'ilh great fanfare and ceremony at (lie fuehrer's headquarlcrs on the eastern front. There, Mussolini poked his belligerent chin around the ruins of western Russia and marveled at the devastating power-o( the German war machine. That meeting, it' is noted significantly, came only three weeks alter the historic conference at sea between Prime Min- Jslcr Churchill and' 11 esidcnt Roosevelt. Salzburg was, the next rendezvous of the dictators, on April 29th mid 30lli. 1942. It'was there thai Hitler told Mussolini of hi.s grandiose plans for knocking out Russia with a smashing offensive through the Ukraine—thai months later was to be gibbeted on the ruins of Stalingrad. II was there, too, that. Mussolini was lo experience .the first ' tremors o( uneasiness about his partnership with Hitler. •He wanted some concession from Hitler—some crumb from Ihe German table—to quiet the growing unrest in Italy over mounting losses on Ihc eastern front. Hitler, too. was uneasy at-Salzburg, and together they mapped plans for gctlins more tood, more slave labor and more planes and (or Mumping out the wave of revolt sweeping occupied Europe. New I'rohlcm Arises \ At Salzburg, they also began to icckon seriously with a brand new problem—the problem arising from American entry into tile war. For even then, Ihc weight of American arms was beginning to be felt on all fronls. And llio Clcrnian dictator, at least, must have fell some apprchniMfln as lie saw the flood gathering far to the wcsl and remembered the similar, flood that engulfed the Germans'in I91B. And so the word comes that Hiller and Mussolini mcel again, and this time they acknowledge quite frankly that they talked of the danger threatening Europe and Africa from the wcsl and cast. It was a "defensive" council of war. It is plain that the dictators are long past their zenith. They sec the last remnants of their African empire falling apart; the growing certainty of an Allied Invasion of Europe in the west and the iinconquered Red Army stand ing fasl In Ihe east. They may have hatched something desperate at their latest parley; perhaps the use of poison gas In a frenzied effort to slave off the Inevitable. But even that cannot frighten the Allies now, for we killed in the Vincmont area. •IHiJIEHllin Openings For Qualified Men and Women as Clet'ks, Special Agents Fred Hallforrt. special agent in charge.
