Cr.iig sail] Allies who are acting ' in'concert with Russia lo "break the back- ! bone" of the enemy. Stalin's words have been taken up bv Ihc priws and elaborated'on for Ihc benefit of the Russian people whose confidence in victory has .soared accordingly. !(• i.s doubtful whether Stalin's changed lone can be ath-jlxiled merely to his desire to mollify the Allies or to bolster the morale of his people. There fccms lo be more to if than that. Is it possible that he has been Informed ol Ihc Imminence of sonic nc«- Allied move? One is inclined to think so.. The Germans seem certain thai I Ino Allies arc up to something ii Ilie Mediterranean theater whcr Ihc Tunisian campaign is rapitll drawing to a climax. Their repeal cd reference to a huue Allied nava armada moving eastward througl (He Mediterranean may indicffte the imminence of a major Alliet move—perhaps against the island, of Sardinia and Sicily, and perhaps Corsica. We don't know yet what, the Allied plans are. But any move ii the direction of occupied Europe vould be sure io win Slalln's approval. That is what lie lias been urging ever since iiis war with Hitler began, nnd thai is what Ilie Kovlet people have been hopina for. Occupation of the centra! Mediterranean islands would constitute the final preliminary lo invasion from the south. At any rate, relations between Russia and the western democracies, despite the Soviet rift with Poland, seem to be Ininrovinit daily. The bellcrment in relations among the big powers, in turn, is -sure to have a sllmulalins ctlcct upon the small nations which 1mve been overrun by Ihe Nnzls. Tlic value of this outward display of unity among the bl? powers will he demonstrated by the people of the occupied lands themselves when our troops begin the big push against Europe.
