The British Eighth Army, preceded by its usual intense artillery
barrage, occupied Enfidaville, eastern anchor of Rommel's Tunisian de-
fense line, and pushed beyond the city into dominating heights, an
Allied communique reported. To the west French forces repulsed an
attack at Oued Kebir, and the British First Army to the north made a
small advance in the Medjez el Bab sector.

Gen. Doolittle
Vows Revenge
For Executions
(Continued from Page 1)
"Actually the Japanese announce-
ment will have the opposite effect.
"Such hideous acts violate all our
principles of right and justice and
all of the things we now are fighting
"It was with deep regret that I
learned of the President's announce-
ment of the Japanese execution of
some of our crew members who
landed in Japanese-occupied China
after the raid on Tokyo a year ago.
"It is unfortunate that Japanese
psychology permits them to think
that Americans would be anything
else but fighting mad after such an
announcement. It only renews our
determination to do our job prompt-
ly and thoroughly. We do not seek
revenge but we do want to have a
fighting part in correcting a situa-
tion that threatens everything we
hold dear.
"Our job is to utterly and com-
pletely defeat the , Japanese nation

Japanese A trocities
Fire Public Opinion
WASHINGTON, April 22. - The
"murder in cold blood" of American
Army flyers captured by the Japa-
nese after last year's raid on Japan
has added explosive fuel to the fire
of controversy over Pacific strategy,
Army observers believe.
They foresee, not only -a rising tide
of public anger against an enemy
capable of committing such acts, but
sharpened demands for expedited of-
fensive action against the Japanese.
Demands from Australia for sub-
stantial reinforcement of General
MacArthur's southwestern Pacific
command in the face of ever increas-
ing enemy concentrations to the
north have not been stilled by Sec-
retary Stimson's assurances of last
week that adequate air and other
equipment would be provided.

School Appropriations,
Compensation Among
Bills Recently Passed
LANSING, April 22-(IP)-Gover-
nor Kelly today signed into law, bills
which liberalize state school aid,
workmen's compensation, old age
assistance and unemployment com-
pensation and at the same time re-
jected a measure which sought to
establish by state law minimum legal
salaries which municipalities might
pay members of their fire depart-
The school aid appropriation of
$50,000,000 is the most generous in
Michigan history, $5,500,000 greater
than the present allocation. It pro-
vides that local contributions to
school support may not be decreased
without loss of state aid and, by
agreement, the increase is ear-
marked to provide salary raises for
school employes.
The Workmen's Compensation Act
is the first general revision of that
law in more than 30 years. It in-
creases temporary total disability a
similar raise is made, and the dura-
tion of payments is extended from
a maximum of 500 weeks to 750
weeks, with comparable raises in ben-
efits for loss of a hand, foot or eye.
The unempldyment compensation
measure makes permanent the maxi-
mum compensation of $20 a week for
20 weeks, but also contains more re-
strictive clauses, denying benefits to
persons who voluntarily leave their
jobs and those made idle by strikes.
