Bluff Is Called Sonoma Cal is attempting a gigantic bluff against the United States and the western allies but is not ready to fight doesnt want to fight and wont fight if her bluff is called Gen H H Hap Arnold told the United Press Tuesday Ive been away from Washing ton now for a couple of years and I may be slightly off the beam but thats my considered opinion the wartime chief of the army air forces said Arnold was asked what positive steps the western allies might take in the present situation Push Through Why not take a motor convoy and push it through the corridor to Berlin he replied Perhaps we might have learned something from George Pattons technique If Patton were running the show he would take it through Asked what the Russians would do if an armed allied convoy did push through to Berlin Arnold much if anything Arnold now technically retired nnd raising white faced cattle on his Rancho El Feliz in Californias Valley of the Moon still maintains an office at the nearby Hamilton field air force installation We need today the same cour age of conviction we had when we marched into Berlin the white haired smooth faced general said Basic Error It would be a grave and basic error to let the communists bluff us out in the present deadlock in Germany They are not ready to fight and they do not want to fight We should curb the national tendency to be in awe of the Russians an awe amounting almost to fear If our people will take the time coolly to analyze what Russia does and does not possess militarily America will be greatly heart ened Of course its easy to lean against the fence rail here in Cali fornia and call the shots as to what we should do and should not do on the other side of the world I may be 100 per cent wrong But I did have direct experience with the Russians under combat condi tions throughout the war and to that extent I base my personal opinion and conclusions upon fact Traffic Toll Equals Figure for Last Year By The Associated Press
