Hitler is trying to put his finger into the fissures of the Balkan dyke ami ihore them up before . the Allies strike trom Africa. Satellites Want Peace Each of the Balkan nations allied with the Axis has shown .symptoms of acute antipathy toward llic war. In fact, rumors too persistent to lie ignored tell of overtures by certain of, Uiese Axis satellllcs .toward Argentina and .oilier, neutral lions looking for terms for a favorable pence. Rumania's army largely has been destroyed In Russia. Except for Ihe troops slill 'cut off at Novorossisk the 1 bulk of her surviving Iroops ha; been brought back home for the defense of Rumania itself.

It has been announced by the United Stales Secret Service. Persons cashing fowmment checks shcul'.i c.rccpt them with the janic caution they would exercise in accepting personal checks, It was pointed out, because they may lose money because of a forged endorsement ..and at the same lime cause a hardship to the person tc whom the check was issued. Theft or forgery of allowance or allotment checks may mean that the mothers, wives or families of men fighting in the armeu forces will go cold or hungry for want of money before duplicate checks Stuttgart Catches Tons Of Incendiaries and Bombs Iii Mass Raid lly United Press A large force of British planes has blown more bomb holes In Hitler's war machine. The RAP's ' big foui'-cngiued bcmbers let go wllli a lliui'ulcrliolt sotunillni raid e>M the Industrial center of Stuttgart, In southwestern Germany. The city's factory dlstricls were hit with Ions of Inccndairies and blcckbusters. Among (he targets were a big ignition works, an ah- citift engine works, and submarine engine plants. 'I he fuel Ihal 25 planes were lost is a lip-off that the raiding force was huge. Southeastern coast observers sold it was one of tlie largest armadas lo cross Hit Dover Straits. They said bombers slrcamcd over one point for an hour and a quarler Ihe air ministry called the mid vtry heavy and said the targets were seen clearly. 'Incidentally.- Slullgart is not only big industrial center but a key link In Germany's supply line from (he industrial Ruhr and nhinelnnd to Ilnly and Tunisia. Simultaneous wl|h the Stuttgart raid, Ihe Russians bombed East Prussia again, Ihe third allack on Hint area In five days. Reports of Ihe Soviet allack arc not out yet. but the Russians have hit KOenlgs- berg. their target twice this week. ^ German bombers hit back ill England during the night. They attacked (he Thames Estuary and Uasl Anglia. Some damage and nine casualties are reported.

Hungary and Rumania. Hitler, ostensibly at Mussolini's urging, took Transylvania from a docile Rumania several years ago and awarded it to Hungary to keep peace" in tho Balkan family. Rumania of late has been clamoring for a return of Transylvania. And Hungary has caused real concern in Berlin by its growing defiance of the Axis overlords. It, is reported that Hugary wants no more fighting in Russia and refuses even to permit, additional Hungarian labor lo go to Germany. Thus,:the reason .for the parade of the Balkan, puppets to Hillc'i headquarters comes .. into clearer focus. General Mobilization Reported Boris,of Bulgaria was summoned so .that Hitler could convince hin that the Allied powers were preparing to attack his country o through Turkey.

Hitler hopes to maintain a form of status emo in the Balkans and present a united front against an Allied invasion, held together by German pressure. It would not be surprising, when tbc current round of conferences is over, if the Germ a as • come out with some kind of "Balkan Charter" to match the Atlantic Charter of the Allies. The Germans will promise any- lliing, as usual, if they can gain their ends. And an impressive look- Ing document like a Balkan Charter might be the one thing that would, at least temporarily, patch up the holes in Hitler's Balkan front. Younger. Sam Adams v.s.
