WASHI'NOTON, Niv. 11. (UpJ — Military strategists speculated today on the possibility that any German move agnlnst Hollitnd would be in search of advanced air bases from which to attack Great Britain. German air equipment and personnel still are rated highly here. But there is some support-.Icr the theory that Germany would, have lo find bases further'west—perhaps In '.Holland—to establish • im air blockade against Britain; Alr-mlnded strategists here would assign that objective immediately In any German invasion o; The Netherlands where n Ociman- Outcli border Incident this ive-k alarmed the world. The theory "is that substantial us Oerimu power may be, German ship:: lack range ami staying power to'permit n blockade ngnlnst Great Brii from present base.! within the Reich, Airmen suggest, three methods of German attack on Ciretvt Britain: 1. Assault in force on the British fleet. 2. Attack on land objectives .such as water works, munitions factories, power plants, etcetera. 3. Atlack on merchant vessels approaching British ports In an effort, to effect an air blockade. Air blockade figures largslv In speculation now as the ;nost effective weapon of a major air power against an bland enemy—which is to say that Great- Britain is a set-up lor that strategy if !t wotila work. An effective air blockade literally would starve Great Britain to submission. But it would bo a hazardous undertaking involving maintenance of numerous small patrols constantly nlofi over British waters. Aircraft assigned to such a JJob not only 'Would require flying range to git them to and from their patrol poets but reserve fuel supplies lo enable them to undertake a lour of duty for some hours over the ate a pan oiled before returning homeward. Attack on land objectives In Great Britain would he substantially similar in technique to ihe German air attack 611 Poland. Attack on the British fleet woulri differ merely In assignment of a floating Instead of land targets. But strategists here believe an attack In force either upon tho fleet or on land objectives would show the world something in aerial operations for which neither Japanese bombing in China, the operations of flying fighters in Spain or Germany'!! air invasion of Poland would liavn prepared tho average newspaper reader WEATHER Arkansas—Partly cloudy tonight mid Sunday; warmer Sunday.
