NEW YORK.—SAYS HITLER CAN BE DESTROYED BY SUM
MER—Maxim Litvinoff (right), Soviet Ambassador to the United States, chatting with Price Administrator Leon Henderson at a dinner of the Overseas Press Club, at which both were speakers. Litvinoff declared last night he believed Hitler could “be de stroyed by the summer.” —A. P. Wirephoto. Litvinoff Urges Allies To Open New Fronts, Defeat Nazis in '42 Co-ordinated Attacks Would Beat Hitler To Punch, Envoy Says th# Associated Press. NEW YORK, Feb. 27 —Simultane ous United Nations attacks on two or more widely separated fronts this spring would destroy Hitler by sum mer, Maxim Litvinoff, Russian Am bassador to the United States, told the Overseas Press Club last night. Only by that strategy and by con tinuing to supply Russia with mate rials for the eastern front, he said, could the Allies "dispose of" Nasi armed forces. In his first public address since taking his past in Washington, the Soviet diplomat called on Russia's Allies not to miss this opportunity to beat Hitler to the punch with a widespread springtime offensive. “He (Hitler* is preparing for a spring offensive.” Litvinoff said, “and he thoroughly understands the importance of the eastern campaign, which should settle not merely his own fate but also that of the whole Axis. Will Win or Lose All. "He knows that either he will win this campaign, and win all, or he will lose it and lose all. We should like our Allies and friends to see this as clearly as Hitler does, and to act accordingly.” With the declaration he did not mean that the Allies should concen trate on the Russian front to the detriment of other fronts, he said Russia, nevertheless, would like to see all the Allied forces put into action by spring where they could be used best, and military materials sent to the places where most needed. "We have wrested the initiative from the German command, which in modem warfare is of the utmost importance,” he said. “It would be deplorable if we were to lose this Initiative for lack of adequate and timely support * * *. Speaks as Layman. “Only by simultaneous offensive operations on two or more fronts separated by long distances could Hitler's armed forces be disposed of—and that is just why Hitler would dislike such operations. "International diplomacy has never done anything which Hitler disliked. Will not international Strategy try? "I repeat, I speak as a layman, but I do believe Hitler could in this way be destroyed by the summer. But the opportunity may be missed. The peace has already been lost owing to missed opportunities. It would be too bad if the war were to I be lost because we let opportunities slip again.” Field Marshal Sir John Dill, mem ber of the combined chiefs of staff ' committee of the United Nations, | praised highly the fighting qualities of the Russian and Chinese armies and their leaders and the contribu tions of the United States and Brit ! ish dominions. Living Level to Decline. “The ultimate issue cannot be in question,” he said. "The great con federation which now opposes the Axis powers derives from so vast an area of the civilized world and sup ports a cause so clearly right that its final victory is beyond all doubt." Price Administrator Leon Hen derson told the club that war pro duction would cost the country more than $50,000,000,000 this year and at least $75,000,000,000 in 1943. "In other words,” he said, "in 1942 as our contribution in the way of the merchandise of death, we are prepared to deliver a greater quan tity of goods than this entire Nation had to keep it alive in 1932. "It means that we stand today staring at the grim prospect of in flation. It means that the level of living writhin a few short months will be not much above 1932, and that- in 1943 we shall surelv fall below 1932." Meem Re-elected Head Of Home for Aged Men Harry G. Meem, president of the Washington Loan <t Trust Co., has been elected for his second term as president of the John Dickson Home for Old Men.

HgperaNSE Alexandria Drops Move To Buy City Waterworks My t Staff Corraapondant of Tba Star. ALEXANDRIA, V»„ Feb. 37,-The Alexandria City Council has voted. 6 to 3, against any further negotia tions with the American Water works Si Electric Co. for purchase of the city waterworks. This action was taken. City Man ager Carl Budwesky said today, on account of the war and the fact that sale of the water plant to the city would necessitate disrupting the present water service organization. Commenting on civilian defense, he said, the city was hopeful of se curing an allotment from the new $100,000,000 Federal-pJd fund for cities in areas of possible enemy at tack, with which to purchase badly needed defense equipment. The bill already has been signed by the President. Four of the 15 air-raid alarm sirens ordered by the city have been delivered thus far and Installed at places farthest distant from present alarm facilities. Don’t Judge a package by its wrapping. Save paper. Conservation of Paper Every citizen Is called upon to see that not a pound of paper Is wasted. Demand from every clerk that any unnecessary wrapping of packages or un necessary use of paper bags be dispensed with. Waste paper for paperboard Is vital to the packaging of a great quantity of war equip ment. Do not bum newspapers, but, when you have saved enough for a bundle, give them to the school children who are co operating in the defense pro gram with the parent-teacher organization in The Star's campaign for reclaiming old newspapers.
