VOL.'LXXVL—NO. 55 CUMBERLAND, MARYLAND, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1945 (ft i New Crucial Test Facing Nazi Nation . To Cnrm aiiy's Ability . Maintain Any Organized Defense Within Roofless Citadel May Soon Be Evident By KIRKE L. SIMPSON ' Associated Press War Analyst Direct Associated Press Service PRICE TEN CENTS Cologne Plain Tlie answer to Nazi ability to maintain any organized defense ncround within the roofless citadel t|i=; lies between the Rhine and the Ocier may be evident soon. . . : And when it is, the duration of the war in Europe can be answered with some reasonable de?rcc of accuracy. Germany was face to face ffith another supreme test. There was no question but that ih« final phase of a "co-ordinated Russian-Allied winter drive to crush the wehrmaeht was on although the full scope and direction of simultaneous rnnssive ground attacks from WE; nnti west had yet to develop.- Under cover of a sustained Allied Mr bombardment that blackened German skies da}' and night with bcnnbers the big push began. j In an anniversary order to Red armies Stalin again defined the jcmt. objective as annihilation of i!;e German army. For the first time, too, he disclosed officially that t!i? Russian-Allied offensive were now intimately coordinated, fitted to a mutual strategic and tactical pattern. ; - -...-. Whether that was the direct first result, in a military way of the mo- ir.entpus Churchill - Roosevelt Stalin conference at Yalta or had ,'is'en previously worked out is not [fst clear. . • ... ;. . Further evidence of the impending German collapse eame during the week from Turkey. In desperate hfiste to join in the United Nations victory march, Turkey formally; entered . the,, war. Her actloa came ; too belatedly to" Influence greatly the military situation except that It exposed die-hard Nazi garrisons on the Islands of the Aegean to immediate close range attack. There were further indications during the week also that a Nazi withdrawal from Italy . misflil be impending. It will . involve terrible risks for Nazi divisions pulling back out of the estruscan line across the head of the Italian peninsula j If and.when It comes. j There are no .recent official Allied I 1 or Russian estimates of remaining German divisional strength either \ r,r. the east or west fronts by which :o measure immediate probabilities. But east as well as west .the wehr- rr.:<cht faces crushing odds as the WMt decisive moment of the war draws near, while overhead it stands naked to ceaseless Allied air attack. There can be no doubt as to the er.rt. only as to just when and how K ^ili come.

This Includes establishments: serving liquor, wine and beer. • • One exception permits entertainment "sponsored by responsible agencies" for military personnel. The other allows restaurants "customarily open all night for the purpose of serving food" to remain open after midnight if they discontinue serving drinks at that hour.

Backed By Mifhty Fleet As on the other two-day raid, which preceded the Marine invasion of Iwo, Mitschcr's task force is backed by mighty 45,000-ton battleships and lesser units of Adm. Raymond A.

Feb. 24. M*)—Adolf Hitler told the Old Guard of the Nazi Party today that Germany had taken such a "terrible" beating thnt now "there is no greater terror In store for us," and he called upon every man. woman and child in the Reich to fight until the last breath, threatening shirkers with death. Hitler's speech to his old parly comrades on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the announcement of the National Socialist program, read for him by an aide and transmitted to the press by the German DNB news agency, contained hints of fear of an uprising inside Germany. . Anyone who showed himself a coward, refused to join the volks- strum (home guard) or attempted to sabotage the fanatical defense of the country would be annihilated, Hitler warned. Threats against slackers and unbelievers in the Nazi regime were sprinkled throughout the speech. Predicts Turning Point Predicting that a turning point in the wnr would come this year but without saying in whose favor the turn would be, the Fuehrer likened Nazi Germany's role to that of the central European nations who centuries ago held off the invasions of Huns and Turks "who threatened to turn our continent into a desert."

I expect to destroy every German west of the Rhine and in the area in which we are attacking." Battle Flames along 22-mile Front The thunderous battle flamed along *. 22-mile front. Massed ar- iwy was smashing German villages in the path of the surging ground forces, and battle planes bombed and machinegunned columns of Germans trying to reach the front. Rail traffic was paralyzed. Tactical air forces on the continent flew 3.315 sorties during the day, destroying thousands of German vehicles on the highway and hundreds of locomotives and freight cars on railways behind the front. A late report said that Marshal von Rundstedt was rushing Gorman reserves from the south into the battle on the approaches to Dues- seldorf and Cologne.
