of of of to other part of the county. Suit mi (Continued from Page 1) hide themselves with a full vision on the street and the only way you run move them Is by sheli-fire" sheli-fire" sheli-fire" Barron described how army engineers engineers with bulldozers were keeping keeping right up with the Infantry to clear streets of debris so that troops could follow quickly. First aid points were set up just outside the front line, treating treating hundreds of civilians and Germans Germans as well as Amerirans. I saw one in a French Carmelite convent which had been used by Germans as an officers club. tier in an paratrooper knives were scattered on the tloor. There were ruins of an altar in an upper room. Groups of battered German prisoners passed by everv few minutes. They had been rounded up from nearby houses. These were mostly Nazi sailors pressed into the artillery who had never shot a gun before their boats had been bombed out of the harbor They were reluctant to fight and they were kept from surrendering sooner only by fanatic paratrooper officers. I talked to prisoners who said they would have surrendered earlier earlier but their officers kept them covered with pistols. One group had been cowed by a paratroop lieutenant who would not accept defeat. After dark they slipped out singly and gave themselves up. The next morning the officer himself - his duty done according to his ideas-followed ideas-followed ideas-followed Ins men into the American prison camp.
