I)ONOHUB of United PIHI Details on tlie Argentine army rebellion utill are incomplete I)lit the upheaval cannot, be interpreted as other than good news for the United Nations. ' Growing Argentine sentiment in favor of the Allies, despite official determination to hew to the line of rigid neutrality, lias crystallised with the army revolt. From all indurations, (lie coup .has been successful. Conservative Ramon Castillo, the cautious, frugal, 72-year-okl former judge whom his associates call "The Fox," has deserted the presidency. The army is in-control, from all reports, and a drastic change in Argentine foreign policy is in prospect. General Pedro Ui\mlrc/. Is emery- »—•— r- PRO-ALLIED COUP IN ARGENTINA Nun Aviatrix Ing as the new Argentine strong man. Ramire/,, the resigned war minister in Castillo's cabinet, has tailed on the armed forces to pledge Fealty and .support the pads anil obligations to which Argentina is bound. The Argentine upheaval is no overnight development, nor is it one of Ihe myriad "pahice revolutions" which have shaken Latin American jMlilics for years. It has deeper implications and roots that go back a year or more. Last August, an omen of things lo come was seen in the Argentine Congressional Committee's charge that German Ambassador Edmund Von Thcrmann was fostering a Nazi political machine in Argentina. The Committee accused Thermann of receiving money from German welfare organizations and using it for ends "foreign to his diplomatic character." Na'ii Organization Sixty thousand Germans were found in Argentina, organized into cells and under oath to obey Hit- ?r lo the death. The lull extent of Axis espionage in Argentina came out In January when the Argentine Supreme Court asked Berlin to waive the diplomatic immunity of, tlie Nazi naval attache, Captain Dietrich Neilibur, so Ihat he could stand trial as, a spy. Scores of suspects were iirrcsleri and on some of the suspects were found alleged plans to blow up Allied vessels and reports on Allied shipping movements. ..; Probably to avoid an embarrass-, ing incident, the Castillo Government asked Berlin to recall Nieh- bur after the Germans refused' to withdraw his diplomatic irriirmrit- ty. ' ,-' v ' .. • '•••:, With.Chile, ArgcnUna:.had .hc?.n Ihe' only Latin American nation' maintaining diplomatic relations with the Axis. Last October, American pressure on those two ..nations culminated In an amazingly frank charge by Undersecretary of State Sumner Welles in Boston that both were breeding grounds for Axis spies. The Welles' charges were formalized a few weeks later when Ambassador Norman Armour delivered a .memorandum setting forth the details of Axis espionage activities in Argentina. Argentinians Angered There was anger In official Ar- gentinian circles over thcs,e charges and chagrin among the general public. But nevertheless, an investigation was ordered. Hitler's friends in Argentina suffered another rude shock when American and British troops descended on North Africa last November. They began lo see the changes in the war tides and perceived the effects a Unilcd Nations victory, which they long considered impossible, woiild have on Argentina itself. German propaganda had tried persistently to convince tlie Argentine people that the British themselves favored Argentina's neutrality. But this myth was destroyed when the British Government sent n sharply worded note to Buenos Aires stating that Great Britair deplored Argentine neutrality. Still Castillo and his government refused obstinately 1,0 change their government's policy. When Chile broke with Ihc Axis, leaving Argentina alone is lo maintain diplomatic relations with Germany and Italy, Castillo said blithely * that there would be no change in his course. The tinny, whoso sympathies a|i- parcnlly have been with the Allies all along, has changed the situation In a boldly conceived and executed coup. The Axis canker very probably will be removed swiftly, now that Us chief friends hae been removed from the Buenos Aires Government. Berlin and Home no doubt will accuse London and Washington of instigating the revolt and will rage again at Anglo-American Imperialism In South America. But what the enemy fails to realize is thai the Argentine revolt expresses the sympathies of a people. Hitler never has learned that you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time.

By United Press '' All Italy is crouched behind her battered barricades, awaiting the shock of Allied troops, expected nl aiiy moment. The Allies, still masking their intentions in the Mediterranean, again have sent out a fleet to shell the ruins of Pantellerla. Twice within 12 hours, our naval miners • poured broadsides into 'antellerla's harbor and coastal latteries. The bombardments drew only weak replies. The' island itself Is described by •eports reaching Madrid as in a state of urgent alarm. These reports also say that Italy las abandoned many of her nir- :lelds on Sicily and has placed all icr troo|>s there and on Sardinia on an invasion alert. It U plain that Italy Is gripped a state of tragic expectancy. The population is convinced that the Allies arc about to storm all of Italy's Mediterranean islands and perhaps the mainland itself. The two new naval bombardments of Panlelleria were followed by smashing air assaults against the strategic Island, midway between Sicily and Tunisia. Naples, the big Italian port, 340 miles northeast of Bizerte, was heavily attacked Tuesday night by Britain's big Wellington heavy bombers which scored hits on port buildings and Industrial plants. Four thousand pound block busters were scattered profusely on the devastated city. The Italian fleet Is reported to have gotten steam up and is under orders to be ready to sail at a moment's notice. spend there.

Allied fliers were slowed down yesterday by stormy weather over the Southwest Pacific. But attacks were made on Timor anil Dutch New Guinea, and two enemy planes were shot down in limited actions. Much closer to our own shores, the Navy announces that the successful Attu campaign cosl our Army 1,535 casualties. 'Ihls includes 342 Yank soldiers who were killed winning this Aleutian oulixwt. These casualties compare favorably with our own count of 1,131 Japanese dead. A Tokyo broadcast reported earlier that 3,000 Japs wore lost. And of those thousands, only n were taken prisoner. The Navy also reveals that small packs of doomed Japs are still roaming some areas of Attu. They are trival remnants however, ami the Navy repeats that all organized enemy resistance Is over.
