UONOIIUE or United Ffws When I'l'imi) Minister Churchill issues itn inviliilion to Italy to trot out of the war, he is not uiiKHKing in wishful thinking. There i.s a strong possibility that Italy will sue for peace, for her pownr to make win- i.s diminishing rapidly. A factor that is apt to escape notice is Italy's total im- preparalness to light a lengthy war. All her hopes, all Mussolini's aspirations were.-'based on u quick triumph .Utrtt would require active lighting for'only a few months at best. At [lie time Mussolini took his . '. country into war just about three' years ago France was done. Eng land, was on her back, stripped of her defenses and wide. open for a knockout. But Hitler, the'one-time Austrian corporal whom even Muso- lini considered a military genius, committed his first blunder—he failed to cross Hie Channel and complete the job against Britain. It was there. Hint Mussolini's dreams were shattered. Ilaly'c Strength K.bbs Now, the Italian military machine, which at best was never very formidable, is sputtering and falling apart at the seams.

Reportedly, he action is a protest against'the Italy's remaining, military strength is fast ebbing'. It is only a question of time before Italy is prostrate. She has no alternative save unconditional surrender or virtual annihilation. The Allies will not' accept a^hy compromise peace witli Italy. For although Italy cannot be rcgardpd as a starting point, for al invasion of Germany, it Is a choice site for potential air bases with which lo bring the air offensive even closer to the heart. of the Reich. If Italy were allowed-to quit the war and revert to the status of neutral, those bases would be de tiled'to the Allies.

It was the eighth .straight day of pounding for Iho southern Invasion routes at least five Axis ships were wrecked or crippled and four more enemy planes shot down. 'Ihns, the eighth day totals read: i!62 Axis planes .shot down; 35 Allied planes lost for n 10 to one victory; and 33' ships sunk or. blasted inlo uselcssnesti. • In the biggest raid of the day. flying Fortresses • battled .strong winds and one formation of 5ii Nazi Messerschmitts to iocisc a lor- rcnl of bombs on the Comisco Airfield in Sicily.

WMC spokesmen say that about 1000 of the negroes have asked for permission to change jobs and thai the Mobile area WMC director. Burton R. Morley, have authority to yrant the premission if the negroes are not taken back at the same jobs.

Depend On Dams Italy's entire economy Is geared io hydro-electric power generated by more than 3000' dams. If British bombers could penetrate the massive air defenses of the Ruhr and Eder valleys to blow up the German dams, what could Allied squadrons do to the much less heavily 'defended Italian power system? Italy's water-electric system -is the biggest in the world, with an annual production of,close to onc- thousiind billion kilowatt hours. So far. -there has been only one report of Allied bonib attacks oh Italian dams—the recent bombing of the Tirso Dam in Sardinia which supplies power to .the mainland. The Savona trnsfcrmer station also was attacked in October, 1942. Now, however, there is little in the \vny of violent, uninterrupted assault on the source of Italian economic life. Since nearly all of Italy's rail- read system is electrified, it would not be difficult to bring it to « slandslill with well-placed bomb- hits on her hydro electric system. All her Industries, likewise, depend largely on electric power and if they were brought to a slandslill, Italy would be rife wllli unemployment and her national life com; plclely disrupted. Highways, But l.illle Gas Italy has a good highway system but her fuel siliiatton Is bad. The few mechanized troops she has would find it difficult to travel quickly from point to point because of the lack of oil and gasoline. Now that the Allies have won virtually complete control over and on Hie Medilcrraiican, Italy is unable to carry on her coast-wise transportation system and Is depending more lieavily than ever on an. already-strained Germany for many of her basic needs. The Germans know as well as anyone Ihc dctcrioraliug state of Italian morale and they acknowledge that the Italins have no heart for,the war against Britain and the United States. The Nazis arc trying their bcsl to stiffen Italy by sending a fc*' troop detachments and some airplanes to defend Sicily and Sardinia. But the Italians I hem selves concede gloomily that their Is nothing now that can stop the growing Allied air bombardments. The Germans probably won't give up Italy without a fight, for Italy now Is a "German front line." The Italians themselves realize that—they know that any help Germany gives Italy is given only if it helps tu the defense of Uit Reich. Tills knowledge alone might play a considerable part in persuading Illy to get out of the war now while there still Is a chance to salvage something from Ihe ruin lually every type of plane in Americas arsenal attacked a ixuver station ,.(iud shipping at Sardinia, beach Installations nl panlelleria, and more shipping al Cape Malcn, Greece. • • Two Allied planes were last In At the .-western, cm', of Europe, American headquarters' has just announced destruction record for Flying Fortresses and Liberators—74 cnciny ipla'nes shot down in the May 21 raids on Wilhclm- shavcn and'Emdcn.
