Unconditional MACKENZIE surrender will bring the Hitlerites respite from further war. But what will it bring them from the millions who have suffered under the lash and have seen other millions of their colleagues die from privation? It's obvious that should these folk rise up fpr revenge, the best efforts of the allies wouldn't be able to restrain them before terrible events had taken place. We have known, of course, thai Hitler was loading many of his war burdens on to the scarred backs of slave labor, both male and female. However, we've had no such details as are now given us by Taylor Henry, Associated Press correspondent, who is in Portugal a wait ing repatriation after 13 months internment by the Germans. _ Forty per cent of Hitler's labor is foreign, and Russians and Poles head the list with 2,500,000 and 1,000,000 respectively. He must get uneasy moments when he recalls the massacres and other atrocities he has perpetrated in Russia and Poland. He must get a chill when he remembers that out of the first 4,000,000 Russians captured by the Germans, only 1,500,000 survived the privations of his prison camps. We know something of what the nazi anti-Christ is thinking from a statement carried by the British broadcasting corporation which reports t h a t all German nationals in .Czechoslovakia have been issued guns and ammunition for self defense. The reason is that open resistance among the Czechoslovakia "s " growing and, says the B.

The civilians of m a n y countries are living for the day when they c a n avenge themselves against the nazi troops of occupation. B u t Hitler's greatest problem along this line must have to do with the reich, where revenge may be t a k e n not only against the soldiery but upon civilians. No wonder his murderous gestapo chief, Himmler, has been given sweeping powers and has under his command a picked military force of 600,000. Meetings Of North Iowa Organizations ST.
