Q ^ ^ ^ British-Ethiopian joint campaign to sweep il duce's troops out of Emperor Haile Selassie's country is reported making progress. The Italian plight there seems hopeless. Regardless of Balkan developments, Britain seems determined to push the East African campaign to its grim conclusion. The British are acting against a background of Nazi-Fascist diplomatic and political maneuvering with Spain and possibly Tokyo. There are signs that the Nazis may be instigating Pacific war rumors to alarm Australia. Moreover, Berlin claims to have destroyed at a single blow in the •t^ •"•*""-«Liuila, Jii' w vtean \J y tru ai> *» »at*4^m*. «» — .. — ^ -_ ie British are now bent'Atlantic scores of tons of British we issue in the Balkans.'shipping, presumably loaded witn Air Force bomb-' American war supplies for England. Whatever the facts of that Nazi sea attack, it» announcement from Berlin was well timed to have some effect on Bulgaria or Yugoslavia, already reported to be the objects of Nazi pressure.

Until Germany strikes in her advertised 1941 final offensive and the results can be gauged, neither Japan nor Spam can feel sure of the war's outcome. The significant fact is that Britain is striving to force Germany to strike, not to block her with diplomatic maneuvers.
