" SB-iV* By DeWITf Associated Press War Analyst If the Allies could force u'ncondt* Jonal surrender on Germany forth with, would that represent the; best solution of* th'e epochal world problem with which we are faced? That's a question which couldn't Vls-se^have arisen profitably even .siV "' groonths ago. because. Na'zidorri hadn't yet sustained the terrible hurts which it now bears. However, it arises rather naturally today or should arise in thoughtful minds — because both Allies and 'Axis agree that the European conflict is in its final stages. It's of special interest at this time because of the flood of peace speculation (most of it without the semblance of foundation), and the' rumors in London that .Messrs '.Roosevelt. Churchill and Stalin /may give the Hitlerites an ullima- '.tum which will include a demand vior capilulalion. . Of course, an imme*diafe termination of the war would in many i ways be a glorious thing, and let it be admitted at once lhat \ve ; wouldn't look such a gift horse in u.the mouth. It woidd save a host of precious lives^ and a vast amount ,pf suffering. That is, it would thus profit us all Immediately. But it actually save lives and in Ihe long run? I Ihink we must slop here lo i consider whelher peace, before Ihe r\cn ^.',German Reich has been ground ex' "• j ceedingly fine in Ihe mill of war, .wouldn't merely result in another world,conflagration which would be ;even more destructive than this ,. one. In short, would an immediate , peace be saving the precent gener- „, ation at the expense of our chil- 1 dren? •"" Many people feel that the Allies • held their hand toS soon in the last I' war. One of the chief reasons why "iwe are saddled With World War ?•'number two is because Germany thsuffered no > physical hurt in the last one. She lost many of the best •j> of her youth, and she underwent great privations. But the people as a whole never even heard a pistol fired in anger. ^ r In this war the Reich is .gelling a '"•' teste of the battlefield, thanks to ^the Allied air forces. Still, while ,"'fhere has been heavy loss of civil- *"ian life in the bombings, and the devastation has been great, Germany hasn't yet received the piin- ijshment necessary to her reform. -.This is one of Ihe extreme cases !•« where corporal punishment is the ^'only thing that will work. tr We musln't forget that when we •' -Have performed the ask of crush '' JiTj?

He has "Created a generation of militarislic Mriatics. The Reich of today is vastly more militaristic minded than was Ihe Reich of Kaiser Wilhelm's lime. Some say human nature can't be changed. I believe that it can, and that Hitler has gone far. towards demonstrating, this in the. manner in which he has manipulated the thought not only of his, own great nation but of some others. What Hitler has done in Germany can be done again, Ihis lime with honest hands. However, it seems to me that the first step towards permanent peace must be to shock the German people into realizar toin of the meaning of these wars Informal Peace Moves Are Reported By London, Dec. 1 — A junta of Missionary to Speak at Hope Tabernacle Tw'6 descendants of the Pilgrims have a look at famous Plymouth Rock in .Massachusetts Where the Mayflower voyagers landed to establish* a colony where they might be free to worship as they; please.

On Bargainville Salt Lake City Soulh Pacific mats, is understood to be awaiting old-line professional derfnan sol diers, supported by many junker industrialists, agrarians and diplomats who are a w a i I i n g j the opportune moment to overthrow Hitler's government in hope of wangling peace terms which would leave enough of German militarism to form the core of a new world conquest. , This group, according to reports om inside Germany, already has nade informal armistice overtures, hich were not regarded by the Hies as tenders at all and which /ere dismissed without discussion ecause they did not originate formally with the German government and because they fell far nort of the United Nations' uncon- ilionnl surrender formula. Warnings against Germany's icace baloons have been given by .ecretary of State Cor'dell Hull, Jritish Minister of Information Brendan Bracken and others, and t is highly questionable that the ntl-Hitler faction could make good m any peace promises at this stage if the war. The Nazis themselves, moreover, would not hesitate to promote such promises to create lisunity and complacency among he Allies. " The reports, which come through channels considered reliable although they cannot be identified. says the anti-Hitler group is headed by Field Marshal Karl Von Rundsledt, Field Marshal Wallher Von Brauchitsch, Field Marshal Fedor Von Bock and Grand Admiral Erich Raeder. They and their supporters are said to be convinced there is no hope for a German military victory, but are determined to fight on in hope of ob taining "reasonable" armistice terms. This group, which is viewed in London as likely lo seize on any suggestion of merciful peace terms, that might come from any conference of President Roosevelt, Prime ; Minister Churchill and Premier Stalin, is said to have left open one offer which asked these concessions in return for the overthrow of Hitler: i — Guarantees Germany would be occupied by forces from the west or United Nations under a joint American-British 'command — a precaution against Russian occupation. 2— Guarantees Germany- would be permitted to retain a reduced army to insure against civil war, demobilizing gradually after a republican government was elected and established. 3— Guarantees Germany would be allowed the right of economic rehabilitation. The latter two proposals particularly are viewed with suspicion, it is said, because they would leave the militarists free to influence the formation of a new government and insure Germany of economic resources for rebuilding her army. Hitler, aware of the existence of this group but unable to wipe it out because of its strength, is said to be playing it off against the Nazi party and generals like Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, General Alfred Jodl, General Kurt Zeitzler and Admiral Karl Doenitz, chief of the German fleet. One peace offer is said to have come from a group supported by some of Hitler's own tools. Directed at certain circles in Russia, it proposed an end to the war on the eastern front, with the Germans withdrawing to the 1939 frontier line in Poland and concluding economic-military agreements with Russia to keep Britain out of Europe. This same group is also said to have made an armistice proposal to Britain, which would allow Germany to concentrate on Russia. Sis.

Opera Star Traubel Trills a Surprise Chicago —(/P)— Helen Traubel, dramatic soprano of the Metropolitan Opera compahy, appeared nl-'-.a service'men's canteen. As she walked to the piano she overheard a sailor in a nol-too- subdued whisper groan: "More of ] that longhair stuff." Miss Traubel whispered to the accompanist, then turned to the audience and announced: "I shall begin with a song by a composer [who has made my home town I famous among music lovers all over the world.

One point on which nil the Allies nvolvcd in the Pacific war seem agreed is that when Japan finally is defeated she must be reduced to minor island power.

When a young boy Friedberg was a student of Clara Schumann, the wife of Robert Schumann, the grea composer. And while he nevei studied with Brahms he did have the privilege of playing for him and was encouraged by him in his early career. He was of the real old, classic Germany and came from the school believing in eight hours of daily practice,- considering six hours a minimum period for one desirng to be an artist. It was nol unusual for him to give lessons of from three lo four horn duration depending upon h'ts mood and the manner in which his pupil was developing the study. Not only was he a great teacher of technique and form but he believed in helping his students to capture and convey the tones and moods of a composition thus bearing out his belief that the poetry of music was the reason for its endurance. It was through this master teacher lhal Ruth Pickard was introduced to the Ihe'n peaceful and music-minded Germany. II was nol a Germany one Ihinks of loday lhat captured the hearl of Ruth Pickard but a Germany lhal had been lulla- byed by Brahms, symphonizcd by Beethoven, prccisioned by Bach. In Baden-Baden, a resort city known for ils healing walers and in such respccl similiar lo our cily, Hot Springa, airs. Pickard spent much of her stay in Germany studying under Fricdberg. "Even the atmosphere," Mrs. Pickard said, "was conductive to music. And visiting in the churches where Bach had actually played the organ gave me such a trill. Fine music was heard everywhere. Even in the coffee houses where families and friends gathered there was always a good orchestra playing the works of the masters. Every small city had its own opera and symphony orchestras. And in Baden-Baden, a city of 15,000 population there was a beautiful open-air thcalcr from which an orchestra played each nighl, its music floating out to those strolling through the beautiful surroundings of this resort." As a student of Fricdberg, Mrs. Pickard attended many of the parties given in his home where gathered many greal musicians of all nationalities, and, lo the dismay of Ihe American students, spoke in their native tongue.

(/P) The Wor Timber Project Is Set Up Here With Timber Production War Project headquarters for this section set up at the County Court House, in Hope, the signal was given .this week for full-speed ahead in a drive to help timber operators and sawmills increase production of war-vital forest products. Project Forester Bradley F Slater, of the U. S. Forest Service, will work in close cooperation with Arthur M. Emmcrling, WPB lumber advisor, in effectuating a five-fold program designed to bring about a sharp increase in timber output. Among the objectives of the TPWP program arc (1) the location of stumpage for mills needing it; (2) help in locating markets for timber where it will do its best war job; (3) help to operators in obtaining or holding trained workers; (4) assistance in obtaining essential equipment, and (5) aid in the solution of problems of labor, marketing, transportation, sjnd financing. The joint USFS-WPB program will be carried out with the full cooperation of all state and federal agencies which heretofore have fostered the interests of forest industries. The project foi>ester explained that military and essential civilian requirements for lumber alone now stand at about 36,000,000,000 board feet for this year, or three and a half billion feet more than normal production. "In addition," he said, "vast quantities of pulpwood are needed, as well as increased supplies -of veneer and pulpwood logs, chem- 11' Travelers to Tokyo ical and such and woods, charcial, ties, wood for fabricaated items poles as gunstocks, lool handles, shuttle blocks.

She thought, You're big, and adult, you have endearing qualities and no guts. So she'll push you around for the rest of your life.

She smiled, at him and went into the house. He swore, standing there looking after her. What a girl! He was crazy about her. He wanted her. He would have •her.

By DANIEL DE LUCE With the Eighth Army in Italy Nov. 19 (Delayed) (/P)- This is Ihe slory of a man and a machine — one born in India, Ihe Ihe other made in Germany. Lithe, muscular Saward Khan member of a Punjabi Moslem fam- ly and subedar, or first lieufen- anl, of a historic infanlry regiment, is Ihe newest Indian hero of .his war. His company commanded was ill with malaria and Khan took charge of the assault on a German-held 'illage alop a high ridge. The Indians fought iheir way up Iwo-thirds of the slope, Ihen met such a concentrated hail of mortar and machinegun fire lhat Ihey were compelled to gid in quickly. They scooped f.oxholes in Ihe damp earlh and arranged Ihemselves lo hold Iheir ground. The Germans turned on all their available firepower, but it wasn't enough to drive them back. Khan, ceaselessly touring his posilions learned lhal his men were praclic- ally out of ammunition but he told them to stay on regardless. Establishing contact with bal- Icncs of British 25-pounders, Khan relayed a report of his company's condition and requested that all be in readiness for defensive shelling if he needed it. The sudebar's hunch came true. Spoiling German infanlry advancing slowly down the plowed ground from the ridge, he signalled urgently for artillery fire 200 yards in advance of his positions. The British' guns barked savage- "One hundred yards" came Ihe next message from Ihe hard- pressed Indian commander The gunners obeyed. "Fifty yards," was the next message. Battered but still charging downhill, ;.lh;e Germans were almost at grips'-Avith, the Indian's';., whose rifle and machinegun cartridges ; were now completely exhausted. "Defensive fire on my position," was Khan's final signal. British shells exploded in spurts of black mud over the field where the Indians lay. The Germans who had survived the creeping barrage were unable to stand it any longer. They broke and fled back up the Tip to Noiis— Avoid Army Camps Camp Phillips, Kas.
