Here, wc had a first rate ouscr- . _ vntion post in the hcarl of the | . enmy's operntional area. Our <lip- .lomals were in contact with German and other' Axis diplomat.*—' .not very cordial contact, of course, bill sufficient to spot trends in 'Axis strategy. Helsinki was a hind nf box seat on the ffrlnjr Jine in Russia and we didn't yive it up merely (o impress (he Finns with our displeasure at their continued collaboration with Germany. II may well he that the Germans have hern putting increased pressure on Finland to set hack into thc war actively. Perhaps they have been Irving lo get definile commitments from Helsinki in thc way of cooperation in a new Spring offensive against •Leningrad. But the Germans have been pressuring Pinland ever since ihe two nations began junking common cause against Russia. Bo thai hardly .seems to have been the primary reason for America's decision to withdraw most of Its diplomats from Helsinki and—reportedly—to break off relations with Finland. Invasion Time Ncars Whnl's more important is thai "second from" time Is ncarlng. Somewhere alont' the vast coastline of Europe, Allie nrmies almost certainly will move against Hitler's citadel diii-in» (he Summer. The U. o. Fliers Down Five Enemy Pltincs Northwest of Guadalcanal Uy Unifuil Cress Pour American Navy lighter planes have scored a sensational victory over an armada of 30 Japanese nirciaft. in the Solomons. The Navy announces Ihal on Sunday the four American pilols shot down five of the enemy planes ill n one-sided engagement 05 miles northwest of Guadalcanal. Two of (he American craft were lost, the lighters — waspish Vongh Corsairs -had been on a strafing expedition over Koloinbangara in the central Solomons. They sighted the enemy armada and immediately plunged into the attack. American fliers from Ihc Army's 15th Air Force in china have .scored another great victory over point of attack is a closely guarded i" 10 "id's of Nippon. The Japan i eso scnt 5 p|., nlK in j n , m aU(u , k on nn American forward base in central China. Five of thc altack- ers were shot down for sure. Only one of Hirblillo's fliers rminnged . In get .oy.pjv the base at all. He unleaded a batch of propaganda leaflets and was promptly shol down. It is Ihe second time this month (ho Japs have tried unsuccessfully to raid thc American bnse. They lost seven planes when (hey made a Iry al il on April I. Nipponese .heavy bombers arc at ivork against Chinese guerrillas in lied convoy losses ? hc coal Producing mountain ran«c Murmansk have' JIlst nol ' (l1 of the Yellow river in -ily lo land-based ce "lral China. The Japs have been .secret, known only to Allied high command and the highest ranking statesmen. But from current indications. Scandinavia will be al least_orie'-pr the places selected tor "•Allied assault"; .There are many reasons why, the •llireo. most important being: The need of safeguarding our convoy route lo Russia; the ncces- silyjof forcing a further dispersal of German forces nroiind Europe; and (he- possibility thai nn invasion of Scandinavia would provide a direct route of attack into Germany itself. The heavy Allied on thc route to M „„.„ ,„,„ been due primarily to land-based Gorman bombers in the Pctsamo area of northern Finland, planes from Pctsamo nol only can blast Ihc Allied supply ships as they .skirt (he north Cape of Norway, but they can.continue the nUmfe even when Hie ships reach Murmansk. If Pct- samo and the northern tip of Norway were wrested from Ihc enemy, Russia would be assured of a vast increase in the volume of supplies reaching the Red Army. Thc need of safeguarding .this comparatively short convoy route to Russia alone might dictate an Allied offensive against the northern Up of Scandinavia. Defenses Scattered Thc stcond consideration—dispersal of German forces—is a •prim,, faclor in any massive military undertaking such as an invasion or Europe. When Tunisia is cleaned up. southern Kuropc almost certainly will be assaulted. Bui if that wcr e Hie only point to be .stormed me Germans could mass sufficient troops in that area and have n reasonable chance of holding. Logic demands lhat the Nazis be forced to scatter their defenses al numerous points if the invasion j. s - ( 0 succeed at any one of them, Scan- rlmavla, whose tremendous coastline Is less heavily defended than most of (he rest, of Europe, would offer an inviting target. Thai brings us lo the third consideration—the pcssibilily of invading Germany itself from Scandinavia. II was just three years auo- April 9th, lMO-,lhal Germany invaded Norway from Baltic bunts and swept up the Norwegian valleys in a .speclacular blit?, campaign. There Is considerable speculation now the Allies might lj c able lo reverse the German blitz schedule by rolling back, inlo the Rcici over the same route traversed by Hie Nazis in 1940. Operations against the Scandinavian peninsula admittedly would be a huge undertaking. The German high seas flecl is lurking in Norwegian Fjords to meet just such an cvcntualily. An invasion force would have (o travel vast- uisumccs-noo miles from Iceland '- North cape; GOO / 1\ • i I )'|)1< 'ill ( >B Moth r Mrs. Mary Moore Thompson 55 i'.bove, of Glendalc.
