Racine Journal Times Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - June 21, 1942, Racine, Wisconsin Sunday bulletin it it vol. 13, no. 6 Racine wis., sunday june 21, 1942. 8 pages the world last week Send ended from United Prest and Astor in ted Prest dispatches front sunday june la 1942, through saturday june 20. L94s. By Paul Freye speculation on a second front is a perfectly justified a said presidential Secretary Stephen Early thursday evening. The Secretary had just finished announcing to the press corps that prime minister Winston Churchill was making his second visit to the United states for purposes of talking War problems with Franklin d. Roosevelt. The Secretary s expressed permission to dwell on the possibilities of a second european front probably was not necessary because the newsmen undoubtedly would have seized upon that phase of world War ii anyhow. Therefore the permission appeared to be significant because such talks Between the Allied leaders Are extremely Well cloaked in secrecy. Furthermore at no other time has the moment for a second front seemed so Ripe. And at no other time has it seemed so necessary. The question now is where when and How will that second front be established Cripps demands March on Berlin atom in 9, a necessity for the new front was clearly visible in Russia and in Africa where news throughout the week almost ceaselessly told of Axis successes. In Libya Gen. Rommel s mechanical columns turned their own heat on the British defense line stretching from Bir Racheim to Al Gazala finally forced the imperials to withdraw from it and then resumed the siege of Obruk after capturing the two vital outposts of that Mediterranean bastion Al Adem and Sidi Razegh. By weeks end the panzers had pushed the British Back toward the egyptian Border but were repulsed in an attempt to penetrate that country. Hints of German paratroops against Obruk gave weight to British military comment that Obruk May be abandoned because the difficulties of supplying it by sea were too great. A push through Egypt to Suez was regarded As a distinct probability. Perfectly timed and lacking Only final Success was the drive of hitlers desperate legions against Sevastopol in the Crimea key to the vast Oil Fields of the caucasus. It was obvious by saturday that the nazis were attempting to capture Sevastopol and thus announce a great Victory on monday the anniversary of hitlers �?o60-Day campaigns against Russia. A Victory on the Black sea would open up the Battle for the Middle East and with Rommel coming up from Africa the British could be pinched somewhere in Syria or Iraq. The germans were pushing ahead again on the Kharkov front and managed to gain a Bridgehead on the donets River for further attacks. But northward near Moscow the russians were preparing to unleash a big movement of their own in an Effort to take some of the pressure off the Southern fronts. A Zero that adds up to o wreckage of a Jap Zero fighter lying in front of bomb gutted Barracks at port Darwin Australia after being shot Down during raid on the vital United nations base.

Government Leader in the House of commons today called for an Allien invasion of Western Europe a with determination to March through to Berlin before we Call a final a it May be sooner or later though Hitler has apparently ahead a Cripps said without giving any hint As to the probable Date of establishment of a second front which president Roosevelt and prime minister w in s t o n Churchill Are believed to be considering in the United states at present. The combined productive Jap bombs found a hangar Jap bombers which have raided Darwin Australia repeatedly left this wreckage of a Hudson bomber strewn under the steel Skeleton of an Raaf hangar.

By Joe Alex Morris United press foreign news editor the first Axis thrust to within 32 Miles of the egyptian Border was turned bark by British mechanized forces in Libya today but on the russian front the red army was hard pressed to withstand Ever greater German onslaughts against the crimean naval base of Sevastopol. Dispatches from Moscow said German and rumanian reserves were still being thrown into the Sevastopol Battle and it was indicated that the enemy had made Progress against the City a formidable fortifications although at a heavy Price. Some German units lost up to 60 per cent of their effectiveness and probably 40,000 to 50,000 have been killed so far in the 15-Day Battle. Final preparation. The conflict in the Crimea was widely believed to be the final preparation for hitlers promised Ukraine offensive. Speculation was still widespread on whether the allies can relieve the red army by opening a second front in Western Europe this summer. In London the government Leader in the House of comr tons sir Stafford Cripps promised that All Aid would be Given and called for an invasion of Western Europe by Strong United nations armies that would not Stop until they reached Berlin.
