Hitler vs. Italy
Hitler's forces may invade Italy
in the near future. -
A fantastic idea,. you say? Sure,
that's what we thought when we
heard a prediction to that effect
come over our radio from two
well-known news commentators
on Sunday. night. Then we heard
the why and Wherefore, after
which the thought of a Nazi move
in the direction of Italy seemed
not only reasonable, but possible.

suffers a few more setbacks of the
kind which seem to be particularly
the rage with her troops lately. As
a result, the dissatisfaction with
Mussolini, , already increasing in
Italy if reports are true, might well
increase by leaps and bounds.
History records that when a
people become restless and dis

variably do something about it—
something which may range from
honest-to-goodness revolution to
mild lack of cooperation. If this
restlessness and its results come
to Italy, along with it will come

troops, well supported by aircraft,
are reported concentrated near
Brenner Pass, the gateway. to Italy.
It is these which, according to the
above mentioned commentators,
Hitler will use to keep Italy in the
A)ds if the slightest sign of unrest
appears. This invasion, if it ever
occurs, should be quite successful,
for Der Fuehrer is no novice at
'` l protectiver attacks. For refer
erence, see Czechosldvakia, Yugo
slavia, Rumania, etc.
