By THOMAS 3. DONO1IUR of llnlltd Picss The Aincnciiii jissaiilt iigainst Attu Islmul in the Alcu tiaiis probably is only thc bcKinninj; of United Slates on •orations in DiaL Diontcr. Attu is 172 milcK farther west than Kiska iHlaiul whicl shortly may turn out lo be tlie main objective of the Am ei'ican attack. One can sense our .strategy in .slrikiiijr' fo r AUu first A .successful attack on that island would seal up Risk; Irom Japanese supply and I'einfoi'cenionl and make il rela lively easy to reduce. In Itself, Atlu Island Is not suit-« able as an attack bate because ot If an American thrust over Aleutians were successful" its .extremely craggy terrain, al- Iliouh the japs have conslritcter a .seaplane bnse there and had begun work on n bomber base. At Kiska, Ihc Japs have built a good airfield, a One harbor nnd facilities for housing troops. What's more, KLska, Is only 375 miles from tlie Japanese Kurlle Islands which stretch' like n gangplank right hito l^ipp'on itself. Thc attack on Attu is almost ccrtnli'i to be followed—if successful—by a bimilai if-saull on KisKa Japs Scaled Own Doom Thc Amci leans certainly will not allow thc Jans to maintain an airbase only 172 miles awns if they clean up Attu The Japs on Kiska probably f.cnlcd their own" doom when they finished; their •'airfield there just a.s they did on Guadalcanal, With paidombk Yankee ingcn uity, . Ihe Americans allowed the Japs on Guadalcanal-to finish their air base altei piovjigiotis labor (hen mo^pd in ind took It over saving considerable man hours of \vpr|5. Jhe rt same is very likely lo A'little over a week a"o~"~ihe Germans irpcnttdly warned Tap-in not -to let the 'Americans get i grip on the Nipponese-occupied Aleutians. As one' Nazi spokesman liul it: /••;••'• "Nobody In Japan deceives hlni- .self light-hcavtcdiy about' thc extraordinarily dangerous situation into : which Japan would plunge the The Germans had hi mind the fact that with Kisfci In American hands, the Kurilcs, and eventually Japan herself would be brought within direct range ol America's powerful heavy bombers. Yanks Itloyed Quietly In Ihc absence of any detailed reports of the fighting on AUu one can spcciilnlc oii how' thc attack developed. It will be recalled that many months ago, American forces unobtrusively moved into thc Andrcaonof group of the Aleutians which lies inidwny between Unalaska and Kiska nnd set up an air field there: Last Jamjars-, (ho Americans occupied Amchilka Island, which is just 72 miles cast of Kiska. The airfield on Amchitka was quickly laid down by nicans of bull-dozers nnd slccl l.iiHling s|.rips;and before long, our fighters and cargo planes were operating there. It is conceivable that the aerial • .support for the American assault forces which .stormed the AlUi beach came'from Amchilka. And H Is more than likely that powerful naval .support paved Ihc way for our landings. A week ago, Ihe Navy revealed that light American naval forces had forced a much bigger .Jap flotilla to turn back west of Attu in a sharp engagement between Atlu and Russia's Komandorskie Islands. That was the tip-oil that Komtllihig big was impending. And the presence of Japanese heavy 1 nnd light cruisers and a considerable number of destroyers in those waters might indicate passible large scale sea fighting in ihc near future. Dutch Harbor S*ronsr There Ls no reason for undue alarm on our side sl.ould heavy sea fighting develop in Ihc norlh- crn Pacific. In Dutch Harbor we have one of the finest naval bases in the Pacific, olilsldt of Pearl Harbor and Japan's big Truk base In thc west-central Pacific. It has been heavily strengthened .since the battle of Midway when. it. will lie recalled, a Japanese task force launched an attack on the Dutch .Harbor base. ...• Since her defeat at Midway, Ja';.. pan has been on the defensive : and her occupation of Attu and Kiska, which originally «- a s conceived as an offensive, move developed into a purely diensive operation. Both those. bWren fogbound Islands have solved Japan well .since last June wten she occupied them. They ga'e Ihc Jau 1 n valuable obscrvallor: post to watch any American (reparations for an attack ajjM'.ist lapnn The mere presence of Jap! forces on Attu and Kiska also piined down a section ot the Ami-lean fleet and Army, and forced us to diver heavy shipments of supplies to tin north Pacific. Furthermore, tin Japs by holding (.he Aleutian? were able to prevent the Amcri cans from using that chain o islands ns a possible supply Mm to China. Japan has probably 15,000 troop on the livn Aleutian Islands. Thcj probably will fight with thc. Taunt icism of their comrades on Guadnl canal But once they arc cut oi from aid they should surfer th same file We, can only aw.ti future • developments. Chuichill Broadcast Say.
