Attempt to Seize Eire By 3IAX BOYD WASHINGTON Ifp Belief spread among American military experts Tuesday that Adolf Hit lers next stroke would be an attempted invasion of Eire to pro cure Irish bases for a fiercer air and submarine war on Britains vital shipping Tlie current furious raids by the K A F upon the socalled invasion bases on the European continent were interpreted in many quarters as a reflection of British apprehension that jiavi eyes are now fixed on Ire land The opinion was expressed widely here that German trans ports from the channel ports and from Norway would attempt to land troops a n d mechanized equipment under cover of dark ness wliile parachute troops and airtransported infantry de scended simultaneously to seize strategic flying fields Calculations as to the timing of any invasion attempt were con fused by conflicting faclors Win ters fog and long nights for ex ships but hinder aerial opera lions In any event the experts agree the British navy would be on the alert for any troop movement by surface ships and would seek to blow the convoys out of the wat er a task that might be of major proportions if the German higli command decided to risk the reichs remaining Warships to im prove the strokes success The aerial thrust at Ireland would be much more elusive to combat Once any large body of German troops won a foothold on Irish soil military authori ties said il would be a costly and difficult operation to dis lodge them TAFT ATTACKS F R PROPOSAL FOR BRITISH AID Senator Clark Wants Committee to Hear Kennedy and Bullitt WASHINGTON scrapping of
