"If I had listened to that hyena
Roosevelt, he would have thought me
a 'chump.' Churchill says my empire
has bone. I reply that the last word
has not yet been spoken."

The Italian Premier flayed Presi-
dent Roosevelt and took Prime Minis-
ter Churchill to task as one "intoxi-

got .around to agreeing with Mr..
Roosevelt's chtrge of long ago that

France in the back," Mussolini said,
"but this is only one stab in the back

and to millions of bomb-conscious-
Italians huddled about loudspeakers
in the squares of the threatened land,
Mussolini ranged from justifications
of Italy's entry into war to a rather
lightly considered determination to
see it through.
