Racine Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - August 10, 1942, Racine, Wisconsin The Racine j Durnal times vol. 86, no. 187. United press a associated press Racine wis., monday afternoon Augustio 1942. Tel. Jackson 600 16 pages�?5 cents ret Ueen to join amp i a by Tex Reynold instead of just trying to keep a the japs from grabbing More territory than they now have in the Pacific Uncle Sam has started the Job of trying to drive them out of places which they have occupied since the War began. In other words the Long promised shift from defense to offence on the part of the u. S. Is finally underway. That a what puts the big kick in today a news about the attack on the Solomon islands by our Navy aided by the australians our own air corps and probably yank army units especially trained for Landing operations. We done fit now yet How Well the Battle goes for our Side. Admiral nimits. Our Pacific commander in chief makes no great Victory claims. His Headquarters merely reveals that Allied forces a retain the in Garden variety English i guess that Means the upper hand. So As the struggle goes into a the decisive phase a the ninth inning or last Quarter this a pessimistic Optimist believes we have a right to High Hopes that our Side will win. Any elation Over this of course must be tinged with the knowledge that american casualties will run High because our leaders have admitted that the japs Are offering a Strong the Solomon islands which lie about 1,000 Miles off the Northeast coast of Australia Are More than 5.000 Miles from the Aleutian islands. Our Navy attacks in both places at the same time. And this gives us some idea of the vast distances our fighting forces Are trying to cover in the Pacific alone. But then take a world map pick just a few of the places where american men and supplies Are being used against the Axis and the term a global War really begins to mean something. From the Solomon islands where yanks Are fighting today to great Britain where another Large Convoy of u. S. Fighters has just landed to help in the european War against Hitler is More than 12.000 Miles by the most direct route. The East coast of the United states is More than 4.000 Miles from the ital Battle Cone in the russian caucasus As the Crow flies and ships carrying u. S. Munitions must take a much longer and More roundabout path. Egypt where c. S. Planes and fliers Are helping to hold general Rommel screw and India where yanks have air bases from which to Fly bombers against the japs in China Are still farther away from us. In Between All these Points Are scores of places where american help is needed scores of bases that need protecting thousands upon thousands of Miles of water where u. S. Patrols or convoys Are necessary. All this helps to explain Why our Power must be a spread out pretty thin a Why we can to always have forces Strong enough to beat the enemy at every Point where he attacks. And though the japs american forces land on Solomons to ice fire on rioting Indian mobs Gandhi May launch hunger strike Bombay India aug. a police backed by troops cities. A critical situation caused by mob violence attacks on summoned to stand by at Headquarters fired on rioters about to times today As disorders strikes and mass demonstrations demanding Independence spread through Bombay and other Street cars and burning of buses was reported growing steadily worse in the Northern District of Bombay where a government communique said eight were killed and 169 persons including 27 police wounded on sunday.
