Foi- many months we have been heaving what it was goiny to do to us and rather uci'vouslj Renewal of Drive Against Rommel, Who Probably Can Reach Tunisia, Indicated ISy LOUIS F. KERMLE U n i t e d I'rcbS War Analyst Developments in Africa indicate that the British arc get- ling ready to herd ^Marshal Envin Rommel's forces into Tunisia as a preliminary to the ultimate battle in which the axis u'ill be driven out of Africa. There appears little chance that Rommel can be prevented from withdrawing from Tripolhania in fairly ;;ood order. The British have no way o£ cutting off his line oj* retreat along the coast and the Fighting French force which has advanced northward from Lake Chad is too far below in the thinking ot doing somethin ibout it. But like so uiuny Ihinfjs hat are iiv the offing, so to speak, we just let the fatal clay sneak up on us. Now it has arrived und uc lind urn-sell utlcdy unprepared lo meet it. Now from out of nou'hcrc «'e have to produce the wherewith to cover the requirements as specified in the income tax blank. The loan companies should Oo a good business this year come (he middle and/or llic ides ol March. -- · -Wonder if Brutus, or wiio ever it was who told Julius to bcwurc the ides ot March, was not maybe thinking oC income tax payment time more so than worrying about the health ol Julius. __·_ Wonder if there is a smoke repair shop in Mason City. It so we would like to Unou- ivhere H is. IVe have several pipes (hat arc in need of repair. _ A _ Speaking of pipes, \ve have one w i t h a bent stem, (he bend ot which does not suit us. Our friends Marlcy Ransom itnd II. C. "Cliff'' Rosa told us if we boiled it in water for a sp_oll. the rubber would become pliable and \ve desert anil not strong enough to constitute a real menace. It if. possible, of course, that the F i- c n c h forces in south- central Tunisia ni i;; h t knife t h r o u g h to the coast at SOUSEC' and present a barrier to Rommel's junction KKEML.E with ihe Tunisian forces of Maj. Gen. Hans Arnim. However. Rommel might tight lus way through or, foreseeing the possibility of disaster, speed up his withdrawal and got there first. There is small doubt that Rommel intends to get out of Libya. A Gormen announcement that the British eighth army has concen- .rated 150,000 men against him, whether true or not. apparently is designed lo prepare the German .ind Italian people for the withdrawal. If the British had t h a t many men. Rommel would be hopelessly outnumbered. What tic lias been doittK is lo delay the issue as Ions as he can. The axis cannot now hope to hold out in Africa indefinitely. Its strategy will be to make a. stand in the northeastern corner of Tunisia, in t h e vicinity of the stroiiK [mints of Tunis anil Bi- zcrlc. ^*. %.- ^: There the German and K a l i a n forces should be able to dig in for :ould bend taste. the stem to fit our rt long siege. The object in fighting for delay is tsvo-fold. One motive is the hope t h a t somehow sufficient reinforcements might be gotten through by spring to hold the allie.s at bay for many monllis. - The other object is lo gain time to f o r t i f y southern Kurope and make it as hard as possible lo invade the strongly defended coasts of western Europe. That in Hitler's only hope of protecting his stronghold and it is certain that he will f i g h t to the last before abandoning Africa. In discussion of the fortification of southern Europe, a summary by the British joint liaison committee in Washington observes: * :,-. %. "While it is true (hat defense on this scale would probably employ at least 20 to 25 additional German divisions and. owing to topographical features a n d transport problems, it would be more difficult for the axis to formulaic a strategical .reserve on the Hues of the western front in Europe, much the same topographical problems would face an invading force from Africa. "For it would be rash to assume that a smaller assaulting force would be required for a Mediterranean as opposed to a North Sen or Atlantic invasion." The committee points out. however, that if Hitler has to immobilize 20 to 25 divisions on coastal defense, they would have to be withdrawn from the Russian front or the strategic reserve in Germany, since it would be dangerous to weaken the western front. That would be a net. gain lor the united nations and a further scattering of Hitler's strength. French Fighting Men Are Getting Ahead With Task in Spite of Political Squabble By GLENN BABIi AVar N'c\vs Interpreter Amid the clamor over the political situation in the ,French empire there is danger of overlooking the fact that French XiyhtinK men, dedicated to the liberation of their country, are jietiitiK ahead very u-eil with the immediate job ol expelling Hie axis Irom Africa. In fact, during the*- -----last feu- days, w h i l e the American f i l t h and British first and eighth So u-e tried it. \Vc boiled it for x long time but the only results obtained «-as a slight siraiffhleniiifr of the stem anil a considerable complaint from The Missus as lo the stink in her stew pan. The stem itself remained unplialilc. Which reminds us t h a t maybe Cliff gave us the information with armies have been conccntratifi on their dispositions for the knockout blows against Nelirmg a 11 d Rommc!. nearly all the allies' African successes have | been scored by I Frenchmen. Some of these fight under the Lorraine cross of De Gaulle and some under .the banner of Girautl.
