IIs 45 square miles have been .shelled from Hie .sen .seven limes since the fall of Tunisia. Allied bombers have raided it at least MO times in the past 30 days. Twelve limes a day while the .sun is shining and minute by minute in the hours of darkness il has been puminelcd from the air. Yet, today's Allied communkmc, « , speaking of the latest naval bombardment of tlie island, declares: "There was a certain amount of retaliatory fire." All the trrrific air and naval bombardments so far have failed (o knock oul the island's battery of 15-inch guns and batteries of about 100 guns of smaller caliber. Doughlinys Necessary The infantry, il seems, still is "Queen of the Army." The fool soldier slill must', go in with his bayonet when the guns and bombers complete their "fires of preparation." Not yet in this war has tlie tactic of pure air attack been able to achieve a complete victory. Germany failed miserably to knock out England with bombs. Germany and Italy combined failed lo conquer Malta—Ihe island which once was called the "most bombed spot on earth." • '">-•• J^or our own part, we need look cnly to Kiska and Atlti, both of •which Were bombed repeatedly for 11 inonths before our troops moved into.

Tlie objective is to snarl the enemy's intricate transportation and supply system across Europe. It is designed to reduce the flow of materiel to (he Axis lighting fronts to a point where invasion may be attempted with reasonable certainty that it will succeed. In strategic bombing, the cumulative effect is tlie important factor. By cumulative effect is meant not only the destruction wrought to the enemy's war machine at a given spot, but also the damage inflicted on the enemy's morale. The German fighting front has not yet been damaged seriously by our tremendous bombing attacks on Hie Ruhr Valley. But the guns and tanks and planes that were to have been produced in May, say at the Kruiip Works at Essen, and were to have been delivered in September, say at Orel in Russia, will not be there. .

In Ihe Atlantic, he says, tlie Allies nrc making gratifying progress. However, Knox warns that the vital sea contest in the Atlantic is not won, although we have been victorious in many cases. The Secretary contrasled the present world situation with that when lie addressed an Annapolis graduating class in December. 1!M1. At that lime, all Allied nations were waiting to sec where the next enemy blow would fall. Knox said, "Now, the situation is reversed." The naval secretary discarded Ills son, receiver. ' and collector, last August, Ihe bondholders have agreed to accept the new bonds at 31/4 per cent, interest, which is a cut from the 5',-i per cent rate having been paid, and to have outstanding bonds payable at any time funds are available. There will be no lass to the district which now has outstanding bonds amounting lo 507,500, of which 529,500 is in default, and there also is a default in interest amounting to $20,418.75, which must be added lo the principal.

Next, winter will be colder for the Nazi and hungrier, loo, because- ol the RAF's strategic bombardment of essential industrial areas. Yet II may .be wishful thinking to believe that this alone will destroy Germany.' The German was cold and hungry for years in tlie last great war, too, as a result of the airtight, naval blockade. But he fought on grimly and powerfully until 1918 when Foch's great offensives smashed the German armies in the field. There Is no cheap way to will wars. They can only be won by hard fighting, and as Prime Minister Churchill said yesterday, we are ready for that, too, If the air bombardment theory does not achieve Ihe desired results. Air power is a necessary—a priceless—adjunct lo the armies and navies of the Unilcd.
