ARKANSAS Thursday, October 58, Editorial Commtnt Written Today and Moved by Telegraph or Coble. By I Associated Press War Analyst v . - The battle °* giants in the great ||f, betid ol the, Dnieper has reached a magnitude and. a ferocity reminiscent of Stalingrad, and like that epic struggle the present conflict casts a grim shadqw ; . -of. disaster across the Nazi armies, on, the East- tern Front. However, I think we'^tiould go slow in forming judgment as,fo the extent of the German difficulties. The world.beating Hitler is in a bad hole, but we shall do well to stick with the admonition/ that "sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof," and not make grandiose forecasts. True, the picture is gloomy for the Nazis. Even Berlin has been forced to the.. unwelcome "task of preparing the long-suffering German public for another catastrophe. The only question remaining . is what the extent of the calamity If* will be. The Nazi capital has broadcast German within the Dnieper bend. Worried Hitlerite Charlie, Mc• Carthys have passed on to the people the bitter information that a large part of their, thousand mile long line has been forced back. Moscow tells us that the Germans are throwing everything they have into the battle to stem the Red onlaught fresh troops, tanks, warplanes and artillery. In- ,dications are, however, that: this bloody resistance is being made, not with the idea of holding the present positions, but to permit the general withdrawal of the. long, front without a colosal • hews of "a large , 'drawal movement' unwidely 'debacle. A huge number of Nazi troops— originally totaling maybe half a, , million — have been or still are in danger of being, trapped-by the on-' P rushing Reds in the Dnieper bend. ' , Those German soldiers must be withdrawn so far as possible, andj , the only way for the Hitlerites to keep a gateway open for them is to 1 stage the sanguinary counter- 1 ! attacks now in^progress. As previously'Tema'rked in this column, the" position'is such thatj • wholesale disaster might grow out ' of'it. However, 'the "chances that scores of thousands of troop already have been resuced from the trap, and that many thousand more will be pulled out. When the German high comman has salvaged all that speeding tim willrpermit,' th^Hitlerites will tr to make an orderly withdrawal o the, whole line; s and fall back 01 other prepared positions. Mosco\ indicates that the Nazis are in slov but steady retreat on the crucia southern, front. The invaders ar> suffering terrible casualties am loss of materiel — but it's signifi cant that no debacle has set in. Of,course, the Germans are in a terribly dangerous position. Shoulc a.rout ; be started anywhere on theii frobt. there's no 'telling ho,w fnr the collapse,, of morale might spread Still, while, that possibility must be c.onsidered.1 we, should remember ihat thus, far the morale of the German,armies has been,top hole — apparently better than the ci vilian'morale, at home. Their re- Teat this summer to the Dnieper was a military masterpeice, anc we, have no right to jump to the conclusion that they won't be able to;duplicate this feat now. The/depth of their retreat naturally will, depend on pressure from the Russians. We believe thai the, German command plans ultimately to retire to the defenses of Hmer's.European fortress, close to the. frontiers of the, Reich. However, their tactics now are to play for_ time — to give their luck chance, to turn. Therefore one would expect them to hope, to-make a stand on the so- called^ Odessa, line, thus protecting the,, gateway, to, the. Balkans! The delaying campaign which the Germans are waging with so much success, in Italy fits in with this picture.. This Nazi stand on the Italian peninsula is, calculated to protect the. Blkans and so the dangerously, placed Hitlerite, right wing in Russia.

The detective said when discrepancies in his story were pointed out to Lonergan, the husky cadet smiled or shrugged his shoulders. Throughout the questioning, the detective said, he puffed cigurets nervously. "He has become a chain smoker, lighting one cigaret from another," the investigator declared. Lonergan clung steadfastly to his story during the questioning stoutly maintaining he had no part in the slaying of his wife. As Assistant District Attorney Jacob Grumet strode,from the Interrogation room at 6:10 a. m. to go home for some sleep before resuming the examination, he said Lonergan was "self-possessed" throughout the night-long session. The husky young man, who returned from Toronto voluntarily last night accompanied by detectives, would catch up on sleep in the district attorney's office where there are accommodations, Grumet said.

Milton Williams of, Omaha, Neb., bailed out near Bremen, he was surrounded by armed ; German civilians • *'who threatened'to/shoot, and Williams was saved only by a Nazi soldier. Another airman said he heard that some of his comrades actually were shot. One flier was walking through a hospital ward when a Nazi patient sat up and. shouted "American swine." Said the. American — "That's right — Hail Roonevelt." For that he was severely reprimanded and was not allowed to bathe for several- weeks. Few of the stories even had that grim touch of humor. Another American said German doctors handled him so roughly that he became unconscious from pain. Despite all this, however, the Germans apparently were becoming war weary and returning airmen said the Nazis — even members of the armed forces — were praying for the end of the war.

Hollywood By ROBBIN COONS Hollywood Carli Elinor, the violinist who taught Claude Hains lo "play" the violin in six weeks, is tackling the same job with Peter Coe, Maria Montez's new leading man. Though Rains'* fiddling in "Phan- lom of Ihe Opera" was dubbed in, Elinor says his fingering and bowing were so accurate that he could nave played the one selection he learned. Coe, as a gypsy violinist in "Gypsy Wildcat," must learn several tunes — and play as if he had;been :born with.a fiddle in his I hands/ '• ' •••'':; '•'']•]'' '•}• i Playing now in "Gung Ho," which .keeps him in the'sun much of the time, Coe was saying he had lo lose some of his sun-Ian before starling Ihe new picture, which is in color.

"Snappy work, Puss!" Pat gave a little skip of exultation, linked his free arm in hers and lengthened her stride to his. With hearts that beat high with hope, they made their way through the pilch-dark streets of Mannheim. But not to Pforzheimer's. "Rick!" "Pat!" Brother and sister embraced each other joyfully in the street outside the rendezvous Imhof had set. Then, with Pat in the middle, hand in hand with each of her beloved twain, they walked on. "Hadn't wo better break our news to Rick?" Imhof asked her presently. "I haven't a strained ankle tendon tonight," laughed Rick. "I knew your nevys as soon as I-saw you together."' When they reached the place where Enzell was to meet them, he was not to be seen. Imhof looked at his watch. Next instant they all jumped. "Here I am," a voice said out of the darkness. It was only when its owner movsd forward that they saw him, so well had Enzell concealed himself in the coign of a wall a few feet from them. "Am I glad lo be going!" Enzell whispered to Imhof. They were in his shadow-shrouded cofgn, where they had retired with the valise, while Pat and Rick kept watch a few feet off. "The Gestapo know I'm in Mannheim," he went on as he opened the valise and proceeded swiftly to change. "It was me they were looking for at the hideout earlier. Groner gave me away." Leaving -£nzell's discarded clothes as a windfall for some tramp, they mudo their way to *e entrance of the field. Schroeder's pass and the permit for ftis "relatives," after due inspection, gained them entrance from the blacked- out street to a dimmed-out waiting room. Imhof hurried off to don Schroeder's flying kit and the others stood around, talking in awed tones and looking about with the apparent curiosity of laymen. * * # QN Imhof's return, a field em- ploye led the party through an empty hangar out lo the field and then down its blacked-oul length lo the start of the runway, where Imhof's plane was standing ready, the propellers ticking over. A aavigator-radioman and a mechanic climbed in. "Goodby, Liebchen," said Imhof tenderly, folding Pat in his Pat clung to him, murmuring wifely farewells. "Goodby, Franz, look after your sister," said Imhof to Rick. "Goodby, Joseph," he added to Enzell, and entered the plane. "Let's go down (he runway and see hisi take ofT," Rick suggested eagerly. "Come!" said Enzell to Pat, who reluctantly turned away and went with them, accompanied by the field attendant Imhof made his way to the pilot's seat. Carefully following Rick's instructions, he plugged into the intercom. "Okay, Stein? Okay, Gluck?" "Okay," each replied in turn. With an eye that seemed casual and practiced but was in reality blank and uncomprehending, he glanced over the array of dials and gauges and meters on the instrument panel. Then he looked for the throttle. Yes, this must be it. 'Clowly," Rick had said, and slowly Imhof advance^ the throttle. The roar of the engines was like an answer to his prayer. "Push stick well forward," Rick had said. Imhof pushed, still advancing the throttle. In a moment the plane shot down the runway. * * * "MOW! 1 ' thought Imhof anc started operations. "She doesn't feel right," he complained to Gluck, "Take a squint at the rev counter." "Now for the pay-off!" though! Imhof as Gluck leaned forward. Keeping one hand on the wheel, he whipped his automatic from under his arm pit and lunged across at Gluck with the butt. The blow caught the mechanic just right and he crumpled up with hardly a sound, The party on the runway heard the plane thunder nearer, invisible in the darkness. All at once the roar of the engines died down. "Somethjng's wrong!" cried Pat Wildly. "Oh, Kurt, Kurt!" She darted down the runway. "Come back!" ordered the field man sharply. "It's all right," Enzell added soothingly, peering at the man's face, a pale blob in the -darkness. Then his feet moved, his arm shot out and the field man went down without a peep. The plane ran to a slop. Swiflly plugging out of the in- lercom, Imhof stole aft. "Schroeder! What's the rrmtter?" asked the startled Stein, seeing Imhof approach. "Hands up," Imhof commanded, leveling the automatic. "And stand away from that radio." Keeping the navigator covered, Imhof backed away, fumbled behind him for the handle and opened the door of the plane. Next instant there was the thud of running feet. Pat scrambled aboard, almost without the assistance of Rick and Enzell, who immediately followed. "Swell work!" commended Enzell, grabbing the automatic and checking Stein, as Pat flung her arms rejoicing around Imhof. Rick darted to the pilot's seat at the same instant and, with the engines going great guns, the plane thundered omvard. Characters i.nd aiuatloas ari UeUtlous,.
