Sunday a St bulletin vol 13, no. 32racine, wis., sunday december 20,1942. 16 pages the world last week by Paul Freye a plane in trouble streaming smoke has been sighted attempting to make a Landing on the water. The alarm is flashed to the army a crash boat a Navy and the Rescue Crews dash out of their quarters where they Are on 24-hour Alert duty. The Boathouse is a bedlam of roaring motors As the High powered speedboats get under Way. Each boat is fully equipped with wrecking tools and surprisingly Complete facilities for handling injured fliers. Note special a Cradle bunks inside Cabin.

The nazi captured in the fight i ing in Tunisia admitted his Dis like for the yanks when he com j planned a a they Are crazy enough to at j tack our heavy Mark in tanks with Light ones and get away with the Story was told by an Akron Ohio sergeant last week in North Africa we Hen he reported an attack in which 12 German tanks j were destroyed we Hile the Ameri j cans were losing Only four. It is possible that there were Only the Light u. S. Tanks in that particular sector of the Battle front and thus the yanks were forced to use them against the heavy a i Chines of the Axis but the fact re j Mains that they went into the i fight and came out on top. The germans found out further j More that the allies Are using i considerably More weapons than j just Light tanks against them in Africa. And they Aren t stopping j Long enough to inquire about than. Two important moves were made by the British during the week one in Africa and the j other in the far East. One affects j the German Side of the Axis and the other naturally hits at the 1 japanese partner. In Libya general Montgomery struck again hard and fast driving j general Rommel a forces out of the j Al Asheila line and Back toward Tripoli. In Pursuit of the fleeing i afrika Korps the British eighth army executed a Brillian Man Euver j in passing and striking through the Axis to trap part of the Force. It j we As evident that Montgomery s j aim was the annihilation of rom i melts divisions rather than allow j ing them to get Back into Tunisia to join their Brethren there for a last ditch stand against the allies in Africa. By week Send the first Retreat ers of the Rommel Force had straggled into Tripoli. It we As thought that even that port j would offer no stand against the j British and that Rommel we Ould j continue up the coast to Tunis and Bizerte if possible. Meanwhile in Tunisia itself the i British first army and the Ameri j can forces were holding tightly to their Iron rings around the vital cities awaiting the drying of the ground before launching the blow i which is expected to clean the Axis. Out of Africa. A hard Long Battle is anticipated. Allied planes have been softening up Tunis and Bizerte with continuous bombing All we Eek hitting mainly at Harbor installations.

Cunningham naval commander in North Africa said today. Cunningham said at a press conference that he believed units of the French Fleet at Alexandria eventually would come Over to the Allied Side although he added there had been no indications official or otherwise that they would do so. Aided by scuttling. The damage done by scuttling to the French warships in Toulon eased the British naval position in the Mediterranean considerably Cunningham said and added a while they were afloat they were always an Uncertain Quantity. I never believed however that we would have them against # Cunningham expressed the Hope that units of the French Fleet at Dakar would join the Allied naval forces. He said it would not be Correct to say that British naval forces a dominate the Mediterranean because a you can not dominate the sea until All of the enemy forces Are the italian Fleet according to Cunningham is a was Strong As Ever except for its Cruiser losses. A your domination of both ends of the Mediterranean is now infinitely greater than it was some time ago a he added a and although i can not say that we dominate the sea we do have Freedom of movement and our convoys Are reaching Malta lose ship a Day. The Admiral said the allies now were reinforcing their troops in North Africa much faster than the Axis was although originally the germans and italians had built up their forces faster. The Axis now is suffering an average loss of More than a ship a Day from operations of Allied surface vessels and planes operating from Malta and North Africa he said. A the millions of tons of stores we have landed show the magnitude of our efforts a Cunningham said. A we Are tremendously Busy bringing supplies Here from the United kingdom and the United submarines Are the biggest menace to the Allied sea lanes in the Admiral s opinion although he said at least 16 Axis submarines were sunk in the first two weeks of the Allied occupation of North Africa.
