Blythevllte Dully News Blylheville Courier Blythcvllle Herald Mississippi Valley Lender HLYTHIWILLR, ARKANSAS, TUKSDAY, JUiS'K 8, SINGLE'COPIES' FIVE' CENTS CHURCHILL FORETELLS 'VAST OPERATIONS' Today's War Commentary 'General Nerves' NowFighlingOn Side Of Allies liy THOMAS J. DONOilUE of United IVess The Allied "nci'vc war" is in full play. The ingenious weapon Hitler used al (ho outset of the war la frighten his opponents into submission hits been turned iigninsl him— • with improvements. The reported attack on Uinipcdiisa island appears to have been part of a well-integrated Allied plan to undermine Italian resistance nt n minimum cost. Hitler used to t^iiin his objective's • • by brandishing his mighly army mid air force In Hie fncc of his tnialtcr furs, lie got Austria riiul Chechoslovakia I hat way—'.vilhcul io much as a fist fight. 'Ihe constant threat that, he w,ould use tliat urniy nnd nir force was enough to force the rnbniissicn of his opponent.'!. The Allies hnvc developed this technique a step further. They are brandishing (heir might before Italy's eyes with a practical demonstration of licnvy bombardment and Taps Lose 19 Zeros*-;. Six Others Damaged In Solomons Attack Memphian Addresses Fay cees Ihe threat that Allied armies will fellow in the wal:c of the bombers. At this static of Ihe campaign, Italy can feel for herself the ler- rific blows of Allied air power and yet she also knows that Ibis isn't all she has lo face. Psychological Pressure Thus. Ihe threat, more than the actuality, works on Italian nerves nnd there is just a chance thai Italy may fold up in (be face'pf Ihis unrelenting psychological terror. If she sill! refuses lo quit, the Allies can play their, trump card with' actual invasion, bringing al its attendant'iniseiics and devastation upon the Invaded land. The Italian prospects are bleak. There is no information o)i i.i>. reported Lampedusa attack, save for what comas from Ihe Axi: But no rnaUcr'-what' actually took place* en that barren, 14 squari miles, of -island, it can onlv be rn. gardcd as a side show to the mail •'event*'- -'•;'-"-.".r ",:.;;? :- •-'"-" •"' Ijimncdusa, a fcimer Italian pc rial colony with a pre-war popula lion of less than 3,000. is n for lorn little place.80. mile.s due eas of the Tunisian port of Mahdia. I is too far from .Sicily—130 miles— to be of much strategic:-use in th defense of that big Italian base And it scarcely could be used b the Allies, even if they held il as an attack base for action agains the bigger objectives lo Ihe norlh. Hence, Ihc raid on Lampedusa— and It appears to have been only n raid—probably was just, another praclical demonslratioii of what Is. in store for the main Ilalian Mediterranean possessions. "Oversized Patrol" The Germans say the invading force numbered about five companies—'approximately men. Compared to the size of the Allied armied massed on the southern rim of the Mediterranean, that was only an over-sized patrol. If the Allies actually Intended to seize Lampedusa, they would have subjected that Island first to a merciless air and naval bombardment on the scale of that belli" inflicted in Pantelleria. The mere fact lhat no preliminary bombardment was laid clown on Lampedusa indicates strongly thai the allack was just a hit-and-run operation. 'Hie raiders presumably were instructed to destroy certain objectives on the island, then withdraw. Pending further word froi Allied headquarters, we can assume that the attack was not in Ihe nature of a permanent opera .lion. ' : Probably one cf Ihc main rea cons for the raid—If there actually was n raid—was to intensify Ilaly's jitters and perhaps force her lo show licr hand prematurely It may have been a feint, designed lo lure Italy's fleet out into the opsn under Ihe impression that Ihc main assault was opening. Nazis Praise Italians Germany's nervousness over liovv Italy will bear up under Ihe psychological slrain is indicalcd bj Ihe tone of Ihc Rerlln announcement of the raid. The Nazis, in an apparent effort to bolster Ilaliar morale wilh lavish praise said: ". . . Once more the test ha? ended tn brilliant fashion for the Italians." But the Germans as well as the Italians know full well lhat any allack on Lampedusa would not prove anything. They realize that Ihc real test still is lo come. It would be extremely filling |f Thursday has been chosen by the Allied high command to launch the rea assault against Italy. For Thursday will mark the third anniversary of Italy's jackal-like entrance Into the war.
