From all indications the political
races in next May's primary will
have plenty of entrants. Four candi
dates already are in the Congression
al contest while two men nave an
nounced their intentions of seeking a
seat in the State Senate. Well, the
more the merrier.
Mussolini must be taking sulphan
ilmide tablets ... he was mighty
sick for a long time, but now, seem
ingly, has recuperated to such an ex
tent that he "dares the United States
to fight him." Of course, he knows
that Hit' isn't far away.
We do not profess to know much
about situations in Washington, we

to iay, "All I know is what I see in

in the latest rumors that Madame
Perkins intends to submit her resig
nation as Secretary of Labor, here's
hoping that she does not hesitate
Tko Wklv heiieves that it is high

office and it is placed in the hands

"hiiHHipj" amour the Communists
that infest this country of ours, and
who will crack down on those Kom
mies that are now causing trouble
in the labor unions.
It has been shown time and again
that alien powers have eaten their
way into certain vital parts of this
country, especially among labor,
and now is the time that they should

ported to have dispatched air forces
to defend it as a rFench possession.
But Syria is not a rrencn coiony.
it i n mandate. lies between
France and Syria are strained and
confused by Syrian disappointment
with French handling' of the bynan
mandate. Syrians expected inde
pendence and were displeased wnen
1939. hecause of unsettled
political weather in Europe, refused
to make good the promises it gave in
the Franco-Syrian treaty of 1936.
For all practical purposes toaay
Fmnrp. is incaDable of carrying out
oitWr t.hp terms of that treaty or
the mandate under which it now pre
tends to hold Syria.
Britain's friends in the United
States and elsewhere, and the British
people themselves, are urging ttie
Dt.'oVi flnvornmpnt to move its
UlJblOll v. - -
forces into Syria before the Nazis
can establish a position in that ter
ritory. Based in Syria, Nazi planes
can make assaults on Iraq and Cy
prus, and Naiz troops and air power
can move against Transjordan to
ward Egypt from the north and east
while other Nazi forces are striking
at Tobruk and toward Alexandria
from Crete and Libya.
Britain's position is difficult be
cause of an apparent lack of air pow
er in the Near East, and natural re
luctance to reinforce that power at
the expense of weakening defenses
elsewhere. Yet the time seems at
hand whn heavier risks must be run
by Britain. Indeed, developments in
the Mediterranean, linked as they
to the Battle of the Atlantic, call for
a display of new energy and initiative

Air Power Depends
The invasion of Crete, by German
parachutists, owed its success to the
control of the air, acquired by the
nap nf thousands of German air
The strategists are wondering if
this island conquest may prove to be
the testing ground of tactics that
will, some time, pave the way for a
successful invasion of Great Britain.
There is no way to tell. Certainly,
if Germany ever manages to control
tho air nvpr Enirland the island will
be in grave danger of invasion and
conquest. Whether this will' happen
remains to be seen.
Obviously, the British are better
prepared to contest aerial mastery
over England than they were in
Crete. Equally apparent is the un
doubted fact that Germany has hun
dreds of air bases within striking
distance of England. It would be
possible, we presume, for the Ger
mans to launch a stupendous aerial
attack upon the airfields of Great
Britain with the idea of putting them
out of commission, and the effort
This is the danger that the British
face now. Outnumbered in the air in
mnnVrn warfare is iut like beinsr out
gunned in earlier wars, with the dif
ference that aerial artillery Strikes
at 300 miles an hour. The defense
is vet to be found for nisrht attacks
and only offensive tactics, destroying
enemy bases, can protect a nation
from threatened disaster.
This conclusion exnlains the in
sistence of President Roosevelt that
the United States must prevent ene
my nations from accmirincr . bases
from which to launch aerial assaults
upon us. " If we stand by, while Ger-
