Allies Try to Gain Control of Mountain Passes in East Tunisia; Hitler IsjVorried By LOUIS F. KEEMLE United Press War Analyst The campaign in North Africa has developed into a wai of position, with Hitler laying the groundwork for a delay ing action to postpone as long as possible the day when thi axis will be driven out of Africa. Criticism of the failure of the allies to push ahead for · quick decision is answered by the fact that the weather durinTM th rainy season makes large- scale* uium» in jround operations impracticable. Tanks are not able to operate to any great extent and supply columns must s t i c k to the, narrow roads What the allies at present are trying to do , is gain control f of the mountain passes in eastern Tunisia in limited operations. Control of the pass- KEEMLE es will be of great advantage to the side which holds them when the major battle comes. Also, if the allies get possession of them they may be able to prevent a junction of Marshal Krwin Rommel's forces in Tripolitania with those of Col. Gen. Hans Arnirn in Tunisia. It is almost a foregone conclusion that Rommel will have to abandon Tripoli and try to retreat along the narrow coastal strip which at present affords him tenuous contact with the forces in Tunisia. BITTER JUNGLE WAR DESCRIBED American Patrols Score 1 5 to 1 Victories By WILLIAM HIPFLE ON THE WESTERN FRONT O GUADALCANAL, Dec. 30 (De ayed), fyPj-- American p a t r o l lave killed an average of 15 Jap mese to each of our men lost i he last two weeks in a series bitter actions in the soggy jungle * * * But there is a slow, difficult fight ahead before Guadalcanal wiped clean of the Japanese. This is the inescapable conclusion reached after three days at Both the tin and the steel in tin can are reclaimablc. Rommel is hard pressed from the east by Ihe British ciehth army, which is reported about ready to start ils final drive. There is a lesser menace, but none the less a menace, in the lienling French forces of Brig. Gen. Jacques leclcrc. pushing northward against his flank from Murzuk in Ihe Libyan desert. * * * Even if the two axis forces arc joined for a last stand in Tunisia, it is doubtful that Hiller expects to hold indefinitely against the British, American, and French armies which are expanding at a rate he cannot hope to match. Nevertheless, he is reported to have landed 70,000 reinforcements into Tunisia, a force which can hold for a long time, particularly since the rainy season does not end until March. Hitter's object in Africa is to hold out to the last ditch so t h a t he can mend his fences in southern Europe and the Balkans against the day ot invasion. * V * Hitler's problem it lo prepare against an allied invasion at any point along an exposed coast line from southern France to the Balkans. The allies could strike through France, Sicily, central Italy, Jugoslavia or Greece. * * * The fuehrer evidently is worried. Recently he was reported to be busy trying to fortify southern France. Now there is a report from Ankara that he is taking similar precautions in the Balkans. Hitler's concern -is manifested by his recent conferences with leaders of southeastern Europe. He had just had Ion Antonescu. Rumanian dictator, on the carpet Previously he talked with the Bulgarian war minister and is to confer with Hungarian leaders. Hitler is desperately seeking manpower, which the wcakcncc vassal states are unwilling furnish. He also doubtless worried by the spreading unrest in those countries, caused bv the growing food shortage and the slaughter ot their men on the battlefield on behalf of Germany.

Current production of bolh. In. said, is three times that prevailing a year ago. Further stcp-ups in output are in prospect, he added marine and army troops advancing eadily. The mud-covered and weating 'officers arc supremely onfident of the final results, but mphasizc how slow and inde- "sive this type of "spot" jungle 'arfare is. Ihe fighting: fronts five miles west of Henderson field. * * * "It is just a question of time," ;aid Maj. Gen. Millard F. Hnr- non. commanding general of the . S. army forces in the south 'acific. He intimated it moy be a matter of months-- not days, not years. "I don't worry about any offen- ;ive effort as far as the Japanese on Guadalcanal arc concerned," the general said. "It is a matter of -·leaning them out." The average oE 15 Japanese killed for every American was given by Col. R. H. Jcschkc. of Washington, D. C., commanding officer of a marine unit, whose parents live at Benton Harbor, Mich. Jcschkc praised bishly the way his men seek out the enemy in cleverly-concealed positions, and take them with a minimum of losses. The patrols are out night and day, sometimes for a -week, and oflen prowl behind the Japanese lines. * * * As we talked in a hidden jungle command post close to the front line. Jcschkc said you cannot underestimate the' type of fiyhtins men the Japanese have left on Guadalcanal, for (hey are extremely brave, skillful in the use of covering terrain, and don't surrender. He displayed a captured Japanese light 25 caliber machine gun which can be used for a fixed position with folding tripod or as a rifle with a bayonet. This, he said, is their deadliest weapon: mortars, artillery, and even rifles kill few Americans.
