It, nil points lo one, thing—Sweden's neutrality is in grave danger and the danger will increase as the Spring wears on into Summer. Sweden is caught between two fives. Her sympathies lie with the Allies but necessity compels her to maintain n tenuous relationship with Germany. Tne .siumiion is complicated by the fact that Pinland, which is considered a "Wood brother" lo Sweden, is fighting on Germany's side. Sweden's crisis will come when and il the Allies Invade Scandi- imvia—and perhaps before.

Germany is almost ccr- lalu lo strike Inlo Sweden, jusl as she did inlo Norway on Ihe pretext that the Allies were preparing to do so lirsl. Germany needs Sweden to fight an Allied attack against Norway or northern Finland. She needs Sweden's railroads for the swifl transit of troops lo liireittcned points of attack, bul she won't get them without a fight. Army Has Orders Three months ago, the Swedish Army of some 1.000,080 men was plven its orders for the duration ••Fight and stand." The order, from Premier Haiisson, was designed t< head off In advance the work of potential fifth columnists such a- conlributed lo Hie defeat of Norway. Hence, if hostilities begin any order lo Ihe Swedish Army lo cease lire is to be /.ignored. The light is lo go on lo. the .end. Sweden, probably Is fbclter prepared lo JigM than any nation the Germans" "have allackcd save Russia. :Almost, half of the Swedish budget this year is being spent : on. defense. Aside from her army of 1,000,000 trained troops, Sweden has a line airforcc of about 50 .squadrons of planes. Her navy consists of from six lo eight'vest pock- el battleships, two cruisers, one small ulnnc carrier, about 25 destroyers, 32 submarines and num- ' erous 'torpedo v boals and" auxiliaries Eighty-five thousand Swedish women are serving . in Sweden's home defense units and the country's air raid shelters are the last word, with air conditioning and full sanitary facilities. 'Sweden's artillery aiid ordnance arc recognized as among Ihe finest in Ihe world. Her liofors guns arc used on American warships and by American anti-aircraft batteries wilh considerable success. One drawback, however, is Ihal mosl of Sweden's field artillery is confined to Ihc lighter caliber guns, such as 15 and 105-mm. Coast Heavily Fortified Sweden's coast line is using most Aleutians. The Americans and the Canadians hlasted the enemy John o. Thurmond nf Gracey, Ky.. cvvner ot extcmivc reul estate n Blylhcville and c.randfaihcr of First Lieut. J. P. Holland, was fa- lally injmed in a highway accident yesterday afternoon near Ilopkins- vii'.c, Ky. lie was 83. He died lasl night, .several hours after his rar had been .struck by a truck as he drove oul onto the highway. Alone al Ihc lime, Mr. Thurmond had been looking over .some farm work and was returning home when he apparently drove onto the highway without seeing the approaching machine, il was said. Lieutenant and Mrs. Holland and son, J. P. Jr.. left Austin. Texas, at 1 o'clock this morning for Cly- Ihcvillc. From here they will go lo Gracey lomorrow where funeral services will lie held in the aftcr- icon. Lieutenant Holland is with the E of the heavier weapons. Including batteries ot U and 111-inch liofors. Sweden also has heavily lorlttieil her frontier with Finland. German-Swedish trade relations arc poor although they maintain a semblance of formality in Iheir fact Ls that Sweden doesn't consider Germany a good risk. In January, the two negotiated 'a trade agreement which Sweden was lo export wood products in exchange for German coal and coke. The joker was that roop carrier command at Austin. Mr. Thurmond aiming and real had extensive estate holdings n CJracey. where he long had Ivecl, in addition lo his business and residential properly here.

The plane scored hits on Ihc runway at Kiska and destroyed several buildings in main camp area. Heavy Liberators and medium Mitchell bombers were used, accompanied by and -Warhawk fighters. Al the other end of Ihc Pacific, Librralors made four allacks on the Solomon Monday.

The air attack have been made in conjunction wilh ground forces work- Ing their way up the New Guinea const toward enemy-held Salamaua.

Sweden refused to grant any credit to the Germans for the first six months of the Ircaly. They agreed lo lliink about graining Ihe credits al the end of six months providing Germany .settles up on some of her oiitstnnding debls. In June, Ihercfore, relations between the two nations will reach a new crisis. It seems that Ihe Germans have never kept their agreements wilh Sweden and have been in the habit of asking for credits, then forgetting about, the bills. Axis Deliveries Short The Germans promised lo export nearly six million Ions of coal and coke lo Sweden in 1942, but delivered less than four million. This year, they promised lo deliver five million tons of coal, but it's unlikely they'll be able to ktcp their half o'f the bargain. Sweden also is supposed lo deliver bron ore lo Germany bul because the Nazis fail lo pay for Ihc ore. Ihc Swedes have been cutting down on Ihc volume ol export each year. This alone might Rive the Nazis reasons tor invading Sweden and trying lo lake over the iron mines Ihcmselvcs. Paradoxically, it would be a blessing in disguise for the Allies if the Germans were to march against Sweden. It is almost certain Ihat the Swedes would hold long enough to allow the Allies lo pet up air bases on Swedish soil, i Planes operating from Southern Sweden would have the entire production region ol Northern Germany within close range of Allied bombardment squadrons. German positions in Norway and Finland also would be within easy fighter and bomber range.
