Quicker-to-Mbc THE CORPUS ciiKiSTi TIMES; FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, '* I '· . --' B By LOUISV-Fi; KEEMLE '' United "Press ^Analyst : There has'been, much .1 smoke and little fire about a German move into the Balkans and ,the Mediterranean to rescue Italy and put Great Britain 'in a difficult spot. The fact remains that the main issue lies in and around the British Isles. That is. where Hitler has to win the .war. 'He. is not noted .for fighting on two fronts, as imperial Germany did in the World War against Britain and France in the west and Russia in the east. Hitler. is concentrating on the British Isles'by-'air and sea, obviously seeking to wear the heart of the empire down until its resistance can be weakened until a land invasion is possible. ' If Hitler lets up on his battering .of the islands, it gives.Brit- ain much more time to strengthen her defenses and striking power, including the air force, with the up-coming aid of the United States. The war would be prolonged and' Hitler's chances of winning it lessened, regardless of what happened in the Mediterranean. The latter is only one roadway to the empire. The fact that British shipping losses for the time being have fallen off noticeably does not fool the British. It is attributed to a great extent to the weather, and also to the suspicion that Hitler is marshalling his air, submarine, raider and mine-laying fleet for another concentrated effort of destruction as soon as conditions are favorable. The presence of German Stuka bombers with the Italians in the Mediterranean docs not necessarily mean Hitler is moving in with full force to aid the Italians. He can spare - a few Stukas to achieve results against the British fleet.' It is little enough to lend to a faltering Axis partner. As to land troops, Hitler has plenty and could spare them at this time. Stilly Mussolini .would have to submit to the humiliation o£ an obvious rescue of a weaker power by a stronger partner. More-;. over, there are Yugoslavia and Bulgaria to be. reckoned with. ·Yugoslavia is .likely to' resist. Turkey has declared its intention to. fight "if -..Germany moves through Bulgaria to attack Greece. Russia is quite likely to disassociate itself from any such adventure Jn the southeast. If Turkey went into the war oh the Allied side under the cir- cumKtances, an army of nearly 1,000,000 men, plus a not-inconsid- erable'air force fleet and land fortifications would be thrown onto the scales. Greece has an -army of about 500,000,. far from all of it as yet in the field. . , ' the British- have thei--' ueet : which still controls the Mediter- in addition to bases ir. and Entire Satis Specials lor Friday Afternoon Sat, Jan. 17th-18th Red White Whole Spiced Large Mb. 13-Oz.

In .North Africa and the Near East, Britain has a formidable army, which-in the case of Libya has proved its power. The Italian army in North Africa -. proba- bly'docs not exceed 250,000 if reports of the number of Italian prisoners taken in the Libyan campaign are anywhere nearly accurate. . Th"e_...size of the British force in North Africa has been placed by : fairly reliable sources at about 300,000, although the British themselves say that less th^n half that number are actually in the field. . The British must have at least another 100,000 in the Near East. Scottish, English, Australian, New Zealand, South African, Indian and other troops have, been combined into a growing army. I t - m a y be recalled that in the 'Work! War, the Anzacs--Austral- jar-New Zealand army corps- sent approximately 400,000 men overseas. Among those hardy ·fi'sjhtevs, the percentage of cas- ualties-V.T.S appalling. New Zealand, for instance, contributed S4.000 men, of whom 50,000 were casualties. New Zealand points w i t h pride to the fact- that oi such ? .great number °£ losses, onlv 34i~nicn were captured. The pcvcenUge. o? I t o l i n n prisoners p.nd British losses in 1hc current campaign would indicate that the- Anxacs are ' still among the toughest fighters on earth. '01 'Five' Gets _.Title of 'Meanest !
