The scene was the white house dur- inr the dark days of December, 1941. Churchill arrived in Washington Dec. 22--a fort- nisht after the Jap attack on Pearl Harbor ha a plunged the United States into war.' * W * There was only darkness and defeat for the allies then. But these two men, with great courage, confidence and foresight plotted offensives! It was at this meeting that the idea of a second allied front was born. It also Was during the visit that Churchill--on Dec. 26, 1941 ad- Iressed a joint session of congre=s in a speech fraught with prophecy He said then that "many disappointments and unpleasant surprises" were in store for the ai- les. And there were. Soon afterwards, Singapore fell, so did the Dutch East Indies and the Philippines. The Russians were being pushed farther back. The'British vere chased out of Libya again. But Churchill peered farther nto the future. ". .. I think it would be reasonable," he said on that December ^n?o 1S *,V " to hope that the end 1942 will see us quite definitely n a better position than we are now.. And that the year 1043 will enable us to assume the initiative upon an ample scale." He returned to'Washington six months later--jn June IS 1942. This meeting resulted in a momentous decision--a second front would be opened in North Africa. That came Nov 7 · * * * Gradually, Churchill's prophecies iad taken substance. American forces had dealt the Jap navy a staggering defeat at Midway In August came the invasion of the Solomons. In November .the invasion of North Africa. Then came the start of the British eighth arrays amazing rout of Rommel's forces. Winter came to Russia and with it the start o£ a vast offensive which now sees tho red armies hurling the nazis back And now, out of this fourth Roosevelt - Churchill m e e t i n g comes tangible evidence that the allies will unleash great offensives against the axis world in 1943-plans for the "unconditional surrender^ of G"*-TM-*--T Italy.
