Huss was for many years chief International News Service (INS) correspondent in Berlin. He was part of an overseas reporting staff assembled by Edward R. Murrow in March 1938 for what was the first in what became the daily CBS World News Roundup broadcasts.
The battle spirit of Allied Forces in Sicily soared today at news of Premier Mussolini's resignation. The immediate consequences of Mussolini's fall, after 20 years of dictatorship, undoubtedly will be a nosedive in the morale of Italian fighting forces.
Everything points to the fact that Mussolini lately saw the handwriting on the wall and that, in desperation, he laid his case before Hitler last Monday [July 19] after sensing the growing hostility toward him and Fascism on the part of the Italian people and the crown.
But Hitler, unlike Il Duce, probably will ride the storm to the bitter end, wildly spilling oceans of blood in occupied countries and even in the Reich itself, and kill himself rather than follow Mussolini's example and resign.
