The closer we draw to the great Russo German clash which Likely will be the decisive Battle of the War the greater is the urge among Allied Peoples for the opening up of a second front in Western eur rope to support the soviet Effort. The most striking advocacy of this adventurous strategy comes from Britain a lease lend coordinator in Washington the powerful and outspoken lord Beaverbrook who apart from his official position is one of the world s famous newspaper publishers. The a Beaver a As he is called in London urged his own country to a strike out violently. Even recklessly to Aid the muscovites. He took this sensational stand before a distinguished audience at the annual dinner of the Bureau of advertising of the american newspaper publishers association in new York. Coming from one so close to Premier Churchill it has aroused enthusiastic Hopes among supporters of a second front. A chances to end War. A this is a Chance a said the a Beaver a a to bring the War to an end Here and now. But if the rus new Delhi India april 25.�? pm an american air service pm a playing both private and u. S.

Not until completion of a Road from India to connect with the Burma Road North of the area in which the japanese Are operating j will it be possible again a by truck direct Early reports indicated thou-1 Sands of tons of valuable military stores from the United states had been captured by the invaders at j Rangoon. Leap Frog relay. On the contrary an american informant said the bulk of the goods was removed northward by close co operation of the British americans and chinese. Many j thousands of tons of the Best sup j whether this is the time to try invasion of Western Europe is something which Only the supreme command can decide. Six months ago it probably would have been suicidal partly because of Lack of ships and other preparation and partly because of hitlers great strength and the mobility of his striking Power. Since then however the Arch aggressor has taken a fierce beating at the hands of the reds and his forces in Western Europe have been weakened. Thus it May be the Allied Council will decide that the time has come for an All out Gamble. What struck me As one of Beaverbrook a shrewdest observations was that the russians might be the Means of bringing the whole Axis Structure Down merely a by blackout Flop angers mayor line taken by russian leaders who have said that Hitler can be smashed this year if the soviet gets help. Indeed he declares he has been in favor of a second front since his i amp in. A Moscow. October. That this is the crucial moment to give the reds every ounce of help possible a even recklessly a is the consensus of Allied leadership.

Ringling executed another will april to 1939, naming cousins As beneficiaries was admitted by Evans who ruled that the second will superseded the earlier and the destruction or loss of the later document left mrs. Ringling intestate. Evans appointed Fred Burdick a grand Nephew As administrator. Waukegan ii april 25.�? a mayor Frank Wallin of Waukegan was mad today because a we had a blackout practice last night and our main drag was lit up like a Christmas Walling a Wrath was directed against seven Genesee Street merchants. He ordered his police chief a to haul the merchants into police court and a throw the Box at them for leaving their Neon signs and Bur a this is a War a he said. Say they forgot to turn off their lights. My god Are they going to wait until the bombs Waukegan is a few Miles from the great lakes naval training station. Miffed aft the Moon. The major said the alleged offenders would be tried under a new a Model City blackout ordinance a carrying a maximum Fine of $200. A fall the civilian defense people work for nothing. They publicized this blackout for a full week. They deserve better co operation. And they re going to get the mayor said the blackout test excepting the Genesee Street merchants was successful in Waukegan and eight other North Shore towns but he was a bit miffed at the Moon whose brightness showed a Lack of holding the germans in Hitler s main objective is to break through to the resources without which he can not continue the War indefinitely and if he can be held a can be prevented from reaching those supplies then his collapse will be in sight. Pressure in t enough. But while we have a right to Hope that the russians with Allied help can hold and even defeat Hitler i think we shall make a grave mistake to assume that this holding is a foregone conclusion. The nazi Leader still has vast strength at his disposal and is terribly dangerous. We can be sure that the bolshevik its need All the help they can get and if by Chance things develop better than expected so much to the Good. The pressure now being exerted on the germans by the Royal air Force is of great assistance to the russians. But it Isnit enough. Hitler must in some Way be compelled to split his forces and thereby relieve pressure on the russians. In considering the possibility of opening an Allied front in Western Europe we Overlook this the very fact that he is threatened with attack from the West might impel Hitler to counter with a lightning attempt to invade Britain in the immediate future before the heavy summer fighting opens up along the russian front. These remaining Days of Spring while great sections of the Northern front in Russia Are still like molasses from melting snows and with by it we Jyh peril or the whole Allied cause since a successful invasion of Britain would be catastrophic.
