DONOHUE . eC ImllttJ Ftfta Reports that King Victor Kmamiel of Italy has abdicated his throne or is about to abdicate 'sound on the surface, like welcome news. But one sliuujd be wary about these reports until nil the facts are known • J [ l , h u C re |^ rtS al ' C tni0 ' U'C'l'rst Uiintf to be (lelcrniinod is whether Victor Kmamicl is stepping out voliinlarilv or • under duress, if he is being: ousted, w< ; milv i )u wjtncs.sinir a clever propaganda slun,l by the Fascists designed to win a receptive ear in the. Allied councils for their proposals of a separate peace. .It is entirely' possible that, by - — forcing the .73-year-old monarch to alidicale. llic Fascists would be able to say: "Tlie oltl regime Is seme; the new Is ready to talk peace lei-ins." ; II Is reported that Victor Enian- ucl is stepping out in .favor of liis ion, Crown Prince Humbert,. whose- wife, incidentally, was tlie Princess Jose of. Belgium. In this connection, it was only four months ago . that the Fascists restored Humbert i LITTLE HOCK, May 17. J- to the title of heir to the Ilalifui Red Cross workers nrc standing by throne. Until then, he had been . , i area as e r- liiipwn merely . as the Prince of kansas river crral moves sluggishly Piedmont, never as Ihc crown Ijrincc, for his position as' heir apparent had not been recognized by Mussolini. The title restoration was politically significant, designed to identify the Italian monarchy more closely with the fascists and restore the faillj >of the strongly monarchial army and navy in the Fascist regime: Tool For II Ducc If Vtctoi Fnnmtcl is to lie ousted it will be nothing more than a Fascist attempt lo win 'Allied "sympathy and attention. Mujsolinl alwajs Ins used Victor Emanuel as a tool of the party The'king and'his sou— in fact.'all members of the Italian house ol Savoy—have'served Mussolini well Victor Ertianuel allowed Mussolini to divest him of all his kingly functions.; He became a figurehead on the throne, j/hosc duties consist**} rnaliily of pinning medals kpn Mn<sgli r ni & wounded soldiers and wldo*s decorating (.rave-- ind appearing" at state fulcUms: He signed the-war declarations against France Great Britain ind the United Stales. • He. .fully cnciorseil the East African campion and gratefully-accepted'-from the Fascists the title of' Empeior —T title he lost when the British freed SbnittlilaiKl and Ethiopia and the Allied armies, took Libya from htm. 'Ever since Mussolini's march on Rome, Victor Emahuel has identified himself with virtually every one "of Fascism's' misdeeds, If only by his meek acquiescence. Humbert is, of the same Ilk. .The.other possibility is one that bears .consideration. Victor Eriian- uel, knowing that he is a prisoner of the Axis—even though a more or-, less willing one—and recognizing, that his people in the past have had an affectionate regard for him/might be planning a coup of his own. It la possible that the king. Is scheming to flee Italy and set up a government-, in exile in •the manner df the late Admiral Darlan of France. ; .'v> The king might believe Unit if the Allies were 'williti« to deal with a man of Darlan's repula- tion, they would have no more , r repugnance in dealing with him Served to Sptedf Victory Tiiis possibility is a strong one It will be recalled that by doing business with Darlaii, the Allies were able to speed -iju the occupation of Norlh Africa. It was called a ' question of "military expediency" because Darlan, despite liis record as a former collaborationist, was of political and military value to the Allies. Our mili- . tary leaders in Africa said the' dealings with Darlan unquestionably saved many Allied lives and .considerable -time. It also has been said that ah Allied "political Invasion" of Ilaly Js just as likely as a "military invasion." Certainly—if King Victor Emanuel were to appear hi Allied territory, possibly" London or North Africa—it .would have a marked effect on Kalian morale. . If he were to appeal''la the .bomb-weary Italian people over ' Mussolini's head lo lay down Iheir arms. Italy could be had almost for the asking. Before lliere Is any outcry against . ixresiblc Allied dealings with Victor Emanuel,' one should take Into consideration llils question of expediency. The nlcellcs of diplomalic conduct do not apply In war time, if. by chance, Victor ;• Emanuel cllmiM n A it " , ' ".I.....UV.I -„..*.,, v^ J( |«,, tr, | should flee the Axis camp and Beth sled ... 631 come over to the.

Firemen Rattle Flames At Hays Store Early Today Fire of unknown origin swept through Hays Store at the corner of Main and .Franklin streets here early this morning, causing dam- nge that possibly ; will total between $1000 and tBOOO before 11 was extinguished by members of tile city fire department.

The alarm was turned in about G a. in. by n passerby who noticed smoko coininR from the roof of the large brick building. Although prompt action on the part of lire fighters brought Ihc flames under control in about 30 minutes, firemen were tmcrd to battle smoldering debris for two and a half bourse before leaving the scene. , Heavy damage was caused t" the roof and ceiling of the building which is Owned by B. A. Lynch, but an accurate estimate of the I damage, either to building or stock, was not possible this morning. Mr. Hays said it would lake some lime to chec>: on damage to Items of merchandise.
