DUNOIIUE of Untied IVess Adolf Hitler and Company have a lot of ex|)!;iiiiinjf to do lo their people. Everything, it seems, has gnnc wrong with the aflairs of the Axis firm. n , G M C !' in , B ' )MCe boilstei1 lhilt Berlhl Wl)ul 'l "oviii- be bomhccl. But it is being bombod. . Hi tier onco «aid Rnglund would be vvi|,e,| from the face of the earth and that Buropc was improvable to invasion. .LngJiiml today is the attack base for millions of superbly equipped troops, poised for an imminent invasion of the Continent. Hitler once declared that tlic * : Antiy was utterly broken and SINGI/B COPIES VIVK CENTS'/;-? FINAL ATTACKS IN TUNISIA would never rise again. The Russians today nre more power/Hi than ever and arc hammering apart tlic last Nazi bridgehead in the Caucasus. The Germans once scoffed nt the British In Africa as military Idiots and they prepared for a triumphal inarch into Cairo and the Nile. Valley. Today, the British and Americans arc running the Nazis into the Mediterranean from 'their lust, foothold on the Af- lican continent. Called Us Soft i Tlic Nazis once belittled the Americans as a nation of' weaklings —too soft and too decadent, to flglit. Today, American fighting men are giving the lie to the Axis assertions on land, sea and In the uir, The Gennnns once claimed to have achieved unbreakable solidarity and collaboration among the peoples of' Europe under their sbrcalled New Order. Today, ; the European peoples arc In the throes of an underground civil war against Nazi rule. 'The Luftwaffe, with which Hitler believed hc could conquer tUe world, lias bceii paled by the tremendous aerial armadas of the Allies. i From. beginning to end, 'it Ls a record of failure^ for the Axis despite jits impressive early victories. Now., tlie. . fpvces.-.pf.tretribu- iion are salhcriiig around the continent. '- •'•, The Gerinans are jumpy; the Italians resigned. Italy's racist party leader, Carlo Scorza, lias betrayed Italian; resignation with tliC'.statcment: J'' • "If we must fall, we will .see to it that, we fall with fine dignity, with honor, so that 'tliose who follow us may continue to live with dignity and honor.' ' ' See tmpeiiding Kooin The Germans must see the handwriting on the wall, but they 'Jo not yet admit the possibility of defeat. . The closest they have conic is lo concede the possibility ol a German withdrawn! behind their so-called Siegfried line if nn Allied invasion ol the continent succeeds. ; For every tactical setback they have suffered, the Germans have dug up an explanation for their people. It was always a "move to shorten the line" when the Germans retreated. And when German cities were bombed the Na?,is claimed that uniinixirtant damage resulted, then told of imaginary retaliatory raids on the enemy.' Stalingrad, the. Germans were Informed, was important because it gave tlic Nazis time to adjust tlicir front. Tunisia, llir.y probably will be told, was of similar importance because it gave the Nazis lime to strengthen their .soulhcm fortifications. Now, it's reported, tile loudspeakers are (joins; up again in Berlin. Hiller, Gocbbcls' or Goering apparently arc about to do some more explaining to their bewildered people who once thought "it couldn't " Arkansas Briefs MTTI,E KOCK, May 8 till') —Fred Malhcs, th« accused !:layc» nf J.

KlioiHs of Kansas CUy, Mo,, says it is the duty of lawyers tn tell government officials to slap tinkering with pur • form of Rovernmcnt. Rhodes, a member of the Missouri bar, was the main speaker at the first si-«iim of the 46Mi annual meeting'of tlin Arkansas Bar Associ.ilimi at Hot Springs.

I'allcru Drawing on the past for a pattern. it. is not difficult to imagine what Hitler nr his aides will say if they are preparing a public address. They will again go Into n long discourse on the alleged iniquities (if Versailles. They will hurl imprecations at the Jewish war mongers and the capitalistic plutocracies. They will warn again of the awful dangers of Communism against which Hie Axis is fighting in the cast. They will scream of Allied terror raids on churches. <irl monument.;, civilians and other non-military objectives. They will warn the peoples of Europe once more that they must fight with Germany when the Allies invade the continent, or sec their lands become a vast battle- Held "where death and misery would roam." And finalls', Ihcy again will hold out the olive branch on their bayonets, seeking peace K-iillc they still have whole skins. 'As for the German ptjbple, they iiavc heard the whole diatribe many times before. They probably will be unimpressed, save irerhaps lo realize even stroiigcr Ihan ever Ihat they arc traveling n one-way road, at the end of which is cer- lain defeat. One is inclined to wonder whether the German willingness to make war 'Mil be as strong as It Is now when they hear their leaders again trying to explain away the Allied ascendancy on all fronts, LITTLE ROCK, Slav 8 (tlf) '.—Aitjr.
