Caught behind the British line southwest of Tobruk after skirting it, the Nazis had been struggling since noon of May 80 to hold open two gaps through British minefields and extricate their trapped forces from a costly pounding by British tanks, guns and planes. The British, who have failed before to keep Rommel's forces locked in traps where they seemed doomed to annihilation, recognize their desert antagonist as an elu sive fighter and one who would not yield without the utmost resistance.

He was said to be seeking greater use of both Bahama products and Bahama labor in the war effort.

"The enemy has found his most southerly adventure beyond his capacity to execute," the Prime Minister declared in launching the commonwealth's second liberty loan. "I defy the enemy to land large forces in Australia." The goal of the loan drive amounts to $113,400,000 as compared with the $157,140,000 subscribed in the first loan. Meanwhile Allied airmen executed three nocturnal raids on Japanese bases without the loss of a plane and destroyed or damaged nine of 30 aircraft which raided Port Moresby yesterday, a communique said. Coupled with this announcement from the headquarters of General Douglas MacArthur was the official report that the wrecks of two of the three Japanese midget submarines destroyed in Sydney Harbor Sunday night "were located and recovered by our forces."

UP President Roosevelt, asked Congress today to declare war on Bulgaria, Hungary and Rumania, The chief executive, in a terse message to the House of Representatives, said that these three countries had declared war on the United States as "the Instruments of Hitler." They "are now engaged In mili tary activities directed against the United Nations and are planning an extension of these activities," he added. The message did not go to the Senate, since it was not in session. The text: "The governments of Bulgaria, Hungary and Rumania have declared war against the 'United States. I realize that the three governments took this action not upon their own initiative or in response to the wishes of their own peoples but as the instruments of Hitler. These three governments are now engaged in military activities directed against the United Nations and are planning an extension of these activities. : "Therefore, I recommend that the I Congress recognize a state of war between the United States and BuK garia, between the United States and Hungary, and between the United States and Rumania." The declarations of war against ' these three minor Axis partners was expected to be more or less of a formality, adding them officially ' to the list of countries with which. . the United" States now is at war. So far, this government has declared war on Japan. Germany and Italy. Mr. Roosevelt's mention of plans for an extension of military activities by Bulgaria, Hungary and Rumania was without amplification. There have been frequent reports. however, that Hitler has been in sisting that they supply additional troops for the campaign against Russia. Furthermore, advices from Europe have pointed to the possibility of the Nazis starting a new offensive in the form of a pincers movement on Iran and the Caucasus, with their rich oil reserves.
