By DEWITT MACKK.N'ZIK Associated Press War Analyst Few recent war have created greater international speculation (and downright heartburning in the case of Italy) than the unex- p l a i n e d an- n o u n c c m e nt ; that the Anglo- American allies are turning one- third of the Italian navy over to Russia. T h e c u r i- osity of Hitler's s o o t h s a yers, among others, is allies, apparently on the basis of share and share alike. Naturally this tiny handful of ships isn't going to turn the war upside down. They might be help, fill in Mediterranean operations, 1 manned by red crews. They would transactions' be particularly useful if they MACKENZIE is at white heat. Especially concerned, of course, arc the Italians, and Premier Badoglio has expressed pained surprise that his government wasn't oven advised of the deal. Well, one can understand the marshal feeling hurt, but there's small ground for surprise in his mind. While the allies hovc to sec Italy prosperous and happy after the war, she should understand thoroughly that she's going to pay dearly for her aggression. Part of the price will be military impotence. Loss of her once fine navy is one of the penalties for helping: cause millions of deaths and untold destruction. It's one of the penalties for shortcimig; the lives of all of us by the number of wasted years which have to be devoted to war.--Nine years if you count the last war, and the end isn't yet in sight. It strikes me that the importance of this deaf doesn". lie so much in the question of what the soviet intends to do with the ships '! as in these 2 aspects of the situation: (1) the fact that the I t a l i a n ' navy is being split up, and (2) that it's being divided among the could be got into the Black Sea to help clear the Germans out of the Crimea and turn their right flank in Russia. However, before allied ships can be sailed into the Black Sea we must have Turkey's permission to pass through the Dardanelles and, more to the point, the Hitlerites must he cleaned out of the Aegean islands which block the entrance to the Dardanelles from the Medi- terraneaji. Anyway, of much greater importance is the fact that the allies are in process of carrying: out their oath to make the axis powers impotent militarily and punish war guilt. Germany and Japan can see in this a preview of nhat's Koin.u' to liLippeti to their own navies and armies and airforces. However, there's something even bigger than that involved in this disposition of the Italian fleet. It's a symbol of solidarity among the 3 dominant powers--America, Britain and Russia--a unity upon which the peace of the world most certainly depends.

Says Condemnation of Christ History's No. 1 Judicial Murder St. Louis. Mo.--The trial of Jesus Christ and His sentence to tne cross is still the most notorious miscarriage ot justice h u m a n ! history knows. Doctor Maier! declared Sunday in a special Len- j ten address over the International Lutheran Hour. Stating that during this war. the . nation's enemies have been guilty of vile injustice,. Doctor Maier asserted that the condemnation of Christ stil stands as history's number one judicial murder. He minted out that while Christ was londemned hardly 12 hours after Ho was arrested, a convicted mur- tercr in Sing Sing has enjoyed many weeks of. reprieve and that ntter other murder trials years Hive elapsed before sentence has been executed. The haste with which Christ vas sentenced, the radio speaker nferred, came from blind bigotry, one of Christianity's chief foes , today. Most unbelievers have no j open inincl on religious issues and ' refuse to consider fairly the ; teachings of Scripture. Many j skeptics who can be induced to j hear and study the Biblical doc- j trines have been converted to I Christian faith. ! As at the time ot the crucifix- ! ion, the high churchmen were j Christ's outstanding enemies and i the instigators of the plot to kill I Him, so today, the radio insisted, some of the chief opponents o[ the simple Gospel have been recruited from the ranks ot modern, Scripture - questioning churches. These, he said, are responsible for j far more spiritual damage than i ati uncouth atheists and political i enemies of the Christian faith. I 213 FIRST BANK NATIONAL BLDG.
