A.nor- ita is mny lake juslilmWe prute from the fact that Mulciu- fell largely as the result of the efforts of the United Stales Second Army Corps. H was the first real break in the Axis defense line m omul Bizei'te and lunis, even though the Germans appear to have |)uJ ed out voluntarily and in good order. The loss ol Matcur to the Americans confronts the German Tuni sian command with some hard alternatives which nroljiiblv will involve the abandonment of considerable «rouml Matcnr was Ihe junction linking -- Ihc only railroad line between Tunis and niaM-tc. The only rcinnin- ing connection between the two cities k a highway running north from Tunis through I'rolvllle. then forked around Lake Bi/erte into llie city iUsclt. This road is under constant. Allied air bombardment, however, so it's not much good for heavy Iraflic. As a result, Bi/,eilc might soon be Isolated. ' A.vls »n Ihe .S|»il 1 Tho Germans arc in much the same predicament as that in which the American Army of tlie phil- ipincs found itself during the closing days of thai campaign. Then as; now,''.the defenders were faced with on : overwhelmingly superior attack arfny. well-equipped f,dlh artillery'"and planes. In each case, tlic defenders enjoyed terrain \ve!l- s'ullcd.Uor holding operations, but the simply problems., of tlie Germans are nearly ns acute as those of'Ihc .Americans as they, withdrew lo BatnarC .''.-.'"''.' 'Corregidor was our only supply point, Just as Sicily and, lo'a lesser degree. Sardinia are the Ocr- maix supply points for Tunisia'.

Tn Tunisia, Gen. Von 'Arnim lias to duplicate the feat 'of the Americans on Luzon if (19 is to escape u disastrous break-up of his army. 11 is beginning to look more and more as if lie will be unable to hold a Tunis-Bizerlc line in the face of the many-pronged Allied advance. As the situation now stands, an American column is racing south- cast from fallen Malcur to join a concerted British push on the railroad town of Tcboura which is only 17 miles from Tunis. A second American column Is driving northeast from Mntcur in the direction of Fcrryvillc which lies only about 13 miles south of Bizcrlc. A combined American-French force has reached a point only 10 miles from Ili/.erte. And n combined Amcrican- Frcnch force has reached a point only 10 miles from Bi/.crtc In 'the cxlrcmc north. Von Arnim Must Act Thus, bolh Ihe ucrman Sirong- hokts arc in direct and growing danger. But since Ihe greater danger is to Tunis, it is iwssible thai Von Arnim shortly may decide to abandon Hie Tunisian capital and conccntralc on the defense of a vastly shortened line based on the natural fortifications of Hi/eric. Thai, however, is nol probable. A second and more likely move Von Arnim jnight innkc would be to leave an isolated siege garrison in Bkcrlc ns a worrying force, then indl back to Cape Bon Peninsula behind a line based on Tunis and Hammamcl. Tlic Peninsula is wild and moim- lainous country cxccpl along the coast where Ihc cvcr-prescnl olive ircc.s grow In profusion. II is almost n replica of rjataan nnd it is en- (ircly possible that Cape Bon will be Ihc scene of Ihc final act in Africa. Perhaps Gen. Montgomery of the Bill Army senses Hint, this is Von Arnim's intention. He has held his veteran imperials on a letish throughout Hie recent stages of Ihe Allied advance along a line based just north of Enfidavilie which is only about 20 miles' below Ham- inamcl.

The whole tactical silualion is a Irlbute to Allied planning. For every move that Von Arnim might make we are In prime poslllon for a counter move. Superior Allied staff work Is beginning to pay dividends. It would be foolhardy to expccl a quick collRpse of enemy resistance In Tunisia for there'is every indication that the Axis has no thought but to fight it out lo Ihc end.
