Dial 4343 For Th« Avalanche-Journal Offices As An Expert Sees It- Behind War News By KIRKE L. SIMPSON Wid« World Wat Analyst On any other Nazi lips but Hitler's own a vow to defeat Russia dnr.'ng "the coming summer" wuuld be but meaningless rhetoric. It couid do little to reveal actual Nazi plans. In H i 11 e r's mouth, however, that com mit- ment has meaning. His personal prestige, not only.wj th his suppressed people but with his army, is at stake. That army has tasted defeat for the first time in Russia, and un-der his personal captaincy. Only complete and final victory in Russia could KIRKE SIMPSON restore him to his pedestal in the eyes of his troops, and Hitler knows it. That was the price he paid for ousting his top generals and risking the dangers of "Napoleon's fate in 1812", he now admits. Siill Some Winter Whether that danger is yet passed, as Hitler intimated, remains to be seen. There is considerable winter and a long spring thaw yet to be reckoned with in Russia. _. Accept the view that his promise of complete victory this summer is a definite Hitler commitment to atone for terrible German losses, and it follows that every future German move, except against Russia, must be regarded as a diversion. Russian armies can be annihilated only in Russia, not on any. other front. Just when and where the summer drive will come depends probably on the weather. The unprecedented winter, the worst in a century or so, must be followed by an unprecedented spring. It vrill be late June probably before the ground is hard enough in the central and northern Ukraine, and northward to the Leningrad front, for mechanized warfare. Moderates Earlier The weather moderates earlier' in the southern Ukraine. However during the thaw season, that area receives the run-off drainage of all western Russia' south of the Valdai hills. The black sea and the Sea of Azov receive those spring floods, making every waterway a torrent, every marshland a morass. It probably will be late May or .even-mid-June before the Nazi "summer offensive" can get going even in the south, and that is. the road to oil, the resourse above all others Hitler soon must reach. 7-Oddly enough, June seems also the most probable month for a possible Japanese assault on Russia's Vladivostok fortress and Siberian armies. Ice conditions in the northern end of the Sea of Japan tend to forbid any.'earlier Japanese move to match a Hitler attack on Russia from the west. Color To Speculation That lends color to Chinese and other speculation as to a possible Pull the Trigger on Constipation, with Ease for Stomach, too When constipation brings on discomfort after meals, stomach upset, bloating, duzy spells, gas. coated tongue, and bad breath, your stomach is probably "crying the blues" because your bowels don't move. It calls for Laxative-Senna to pu!l the trigger on those lazy bowels, combined with Syrup Pepsin for perfect ease to your stomach in taking. For years, many Doctors have given pepsin preparations in their prescriptions to make medicine more agreeable to a touchy stomach. So be sure your laxative contains Syrup Pepsin. Insist on Dr. Cald- weil's Laxative Senna combined with Syrup Pepsin. See how wonderfully the Laxative Senna wakes up lazy nerves and muscles in your intestines to bring welcome relief from constipation. And the good old Syrup Pepsin makes this laxs- tivc so comfortable and easy on your stomach. Even finicky children love the taste of this pleasant family laxative. Take Dr. Caldwell's Laxative Senna combined with Syrup Pepsin, as directed on label or as your doctor advises, and feel world'sbetter.GetKenumeDr.CaldweH's. —AdT. combined Naxi-Japanese squeeze against Russia. It gives added significance to Hitler's fulsome references to "heroic" Japanese victories in the Pacific theater. It is what he hopes for, if not what, Japan is yet willing to undertake. Vladivostok, duspite Russian- Japanese non-aggression pacts, is a menacing threat at Japan's back. But if Tokyo has iiome understanding with Berlin calling for a joint offensive against Russia, it must follow that further Japanese advances in the south against Australia or in Burma are to be restricted to what can be q u i c k ly attained. She dare not risk simultaneous major action on three far separated fronts in addition to her China campaign. LAREDO MAN KILLED LAREDO, March 36.
