only 125 nautical from Kiska Although the navy which is in charge of operations ot all tilt armed forces in the Aleutians in cluding the Canadian air force has not yet proclaimed an offen sive in

a game warden ordered the deer released Stalin Demands Allies Fulfill Pledge Says Second Front Vital By HENRY C OASSIDY Copyright 1942 by the Associated Press Stalin described a second front as of first rate importance Sunday called upon Russias allies to fulfill their obligations fully and on time and expressed confidence that Russias strength was equal to the attempt of Germany or any other aggression to gain world domination TVlO ctjltnTnnTAf n Intfnn The statement was contained in a and was Stalins only direct time utterance thus far to the for eign press His letter frankly answered three questions on the second front allied aid and the soviet power of resistance The com plete text in its authorized trans lation follows letter to this correspondent Dear Mr Cassidy to the pressure of work and my consequent inability to grant you an interview I shall confine myself to a brief written answer to your questions One What place does the pos sibility of a second front occupy in the soviet estimates of the current situation Answer A very important place one might say a place of first rate importance Two To what extent is allied aid to the soviet union proving ef fective and what could be done to amplify and improve this aid Answer As compared with the aid the soviet union is giving the allies by drawing upon itself the main forces of the German fascist armies the aid of the allies to the soviet union has so far been little effective In order to amplify and improve this aid only one thing is required That the allies ful fill their obligations fully and on time Three What remains of the soviet capacity for resistance Answer I think that the soviet capacity of resisting the German brigands is in strength not less if not greater than the capacity of Germany or any other power to secure for itself world domination Wilh respect J Stalin The letter was typed on a plain white sheet of paper bear inpr nn letterhead and signed in purple ink in a firm bold hand with an emphatic period after the J and a dash after the name Stalin f The letter was written Saturday by lite man who combines the posts of premier war commissar chairman of the defense council and secretary general of the com munist party It was in response to my letter delivered directly to the gate of the Kremlin the day be fore requesting an interview or a written answer to the questions Stalins reply in Russian with the authorized English transla tion was handed to me early Sun day by Nikolai Palgunov chief of the press department o the com missariat of foreign affairs f f It was Slalins first public statement on the question of a second front for almost a year He previously had mentioned it only in a speech to a meeting of the communist party and other organizations in Moscow Nov 6 1941 on the eve ot the anni versary of the Bolshevist revo lution V W One of the reasons for the re verses of the red army is the ab sence of a second front he said at the time There can be no doubt that the absence of a second front in Eu rope against the Germans makes the position ot the German army considerably easier But neither can there be any doubt that the appearance of a second front on the European continent and it must unquestionably appear in the near materially case the situation of our army to the detriment of the German army Kurowsky Hits Homer in 9th With One On as Redbirds Win

Opening of Second Front Given Impetus by Stalin By HARRISON SALISBURY United Press Staff Correspondent The nazis Monday hurled an other terrific attack at Staliji fiiad attempting to swamp the citys stalwart defenders under sheer weight of men and arms Russian reports indicated the red army was holding its lines stubbornly although forced lo fall Jack somewhat in the northwest sector of the city whore the great esl German pressure was directed There was every indication Jiuwcvcr that ltc Kussiaiis would coiilinue to defend the Volga river center footbyfoot and yardbyyard in accordance with strategic plans which Mos cnw said already had disrupted Adolf llillcrs Kussian program At the same lime soviet agita tion of a second front in Europe received new impetus by a statement from Josef Stalin wnich placed a new fighting front asuinst Germany No J Ou the so viet priority list Stalin expressed confidence that Russia was not less strong than Germany or any oilier aggres sive a refer ence to insisted that a second front was needed and char acterized allied aid thus far as of little effect He said that deliv eries to Russia must he made on schedule and up to promised quantities it the aid program was to be satisfactory Stalins hint that Russiastill regarded her strength as equal if not superior to such 3 power as Japan coincided with a dis palcli from John K Morris United Tress far caslern inaua ser from Bombay expressing the opinion of veteran eastern observers that Siberia is Japans most likely next objective These experts sharply chal lenged Hie theory that winter war is unfeasible in Siberia suggesting instead that winter isa more vorable time for maneuver since nvors and marshes are then rozen and provide a good footing or mechanized equipment Stalins statement was expected m Britain to arouse new agitation tor a second front but there no indication that it might affect military decisions already made by the allied high command There were however mounting indications of nazi nervousness over the growing strength of the allies Axis radios circulated a wnolc scries of reports designed o sow doubt and mistrust omonz the allies One of the most wiilcly circu lated nazi falsehoods was a re port that Stalin had yielded his Place as supreme Russian mili tary commander to Marshal lions report which Moscow branded as a Plain lie Another similar ru mor was voiced by the Vicliv radio that Gen GcorKC Mar shall U S chief of staff hid been superseded Like the Shan oshnikov report Ihcre no ruth to the Vichy allegation The mounting strain of three years of war on Germanys inter nal structure was clearly indicated by a Sunday address ot Rcichmar shal Hermann Gocring in which the iNo 2 nazi leader sought to prepare he public for the heavy sacrifices of the winter just ahead He promised the Germans that tlicy would cat even if the rest of Linope should starve and ex pressed utmost sympathy for the residents of regions under British anbombardment saying that as an expert on such matters he well knew the sufferings they must endure However he was unable to promise any immediate allevia tion since the luftwaffe he made plain was too occupied in Russia to pay much attention to Britain at the moment However he said that the bombed areas would get several extra ounces of meal pci wcck to case their hardships Gocrinj warned also against rumor moitscrinc Coming im mciliatcly after a similar warn by Propaganda Minislcr paul Joseph Gocbbcls Goerings statement seemed to indicate that rumors arc becoming a ma jor problem to the nazis Stockholm
