SIMPSON Associated Press War Analyst Allied armies in the west from [the lesser Rhine in Holland to the JBclfort Gap leading to the upper I river in Prance are slugging it put I with bitter-end Nazi defenders with I no certainty that winter will not [catch them short of a decisive I break-through. They have only weeks to go to avert a weather-bound stale- mite unlikely to ease off enough for major ground operations until next March or April. But they also have the word ol their American supreme commander, General Eisenhower, that it will be no sit-down winlcr campaign in any event. • The Allied commander did not | dismiss the possibility of an in- jternal collapse In. Germany to end jthe struggle as suddenly as the jfirst world war ended less than a month short of 2 G years ago. It Jstill could happen. The plight of INazi Germany today is incompara- jbly worse from a military stand- jpoint than was that of Imperial ICermany in mid-October, 1918, when Jthe German crack-up began. That plays no part in Allied or Russian plans to push the attack ceaselessly, in and out of season. If it comes, it will be a welcome short cut to victory but the Genera] made it clear that the victory he can .now foresee depends in no way upon j« ----- ' aid from inside Germany.

Generosity Of Girl Believed Led To Murder By WADE WERNER London, Oct. 14 (/P>—Hungary, her capital helpless in the path of the Red Army, has sent a delegation to Moscow to ask for peace, the Ankara radio said tonight. There was no confirmation of the report, which said that the delegation "is already on its w v," but there have been persistent reports all .week that the Hungarians were seeking an armistice. Associated Press Correspondent Daniel De Luce said in a dispatch from Moscow that the political circumstances surrounding the Red Army's conquest of Hungary "may be compared" with those under which the Italian armistice was kept secret for five days. The point was not further amplified and several paragraphs were missing from the dispatch, perhaps a result of censorship deletions. Bulgars Negotiate Peace While all indications thus -were that Hungary was about to drop out of the war, or may even already have done so,, the Ankara radio also [quoted a Sofia communique saying that a Bulgarian delegation had left for Moscow to negotiate armistice terms.

Tlie Hollywood canteen hostess had been accustomed to giving rides to soldiers and sailors, entertaining them at night, clubs and loaning them money, her friends told the officers. • Interested In Sen-icemen a report which it said came from Bulgaria but was not otherwise attributed, said that "the Hungarian government has accepted the preliminary conditions as an Allied armistice." . Nails Admit Hungary In Panic The Nazis admitted in broadcasts tonight that Hungary was in a-panic and that "all Europe is watch- Ing with a sense of tension," but Berlin insisted that the German Army would fight for every foot of this strategic area "as if it were German sell." The German propaganda agency Transocean, quoting the Deutsche Allgemeine Zeitung, blamed ineffective Hungarian resistance upon a lack of "moral preparation for war.' of what might happen at Budapest. The other great unknown quantity in the military situation lay in the west. It hinged upon Eisenhower's siaic of readiness to deliver 'a new major blow at the lower Rhine gateway to northwestern Germany in Holland before bad weather sets in. pout "She had the means to do it and frantic last-ditch appeals in tlie was interested in servicemen," sald' contr olled Hungarian press'hinted Mrs. Rose.

Dr. Frank R. Webb, county autopsy surgeon, said his examination showed Miss Bauerdorf ' had been strangled to death. Dr. Webb said after a further examination of the body that there were indications she had struggled desperately with her slayer. . The knuckles of her right hand were badly bruised, and there were contusions on the head and abdomen •which could have been caused by blows from a fist, he reported.

Xation In Stale of Alarm DNB, the official German news agency, reported that all of Hungary was hi a state of alarm, with Budapest "IdgUtcncd of its fate." 3n Germany, however, it added that "every single individual knows that Hungary Is geographically and militarily a part and parcel of the Inner European fortress." _ The Algiers radio, casting some doubt on the sincerity of the German boast that Hungary would be defended to the last by the German army, quoted Ankara reports that the Germans had begun to dismantle all factory machinery In Czecho-Slovakia for transportation into Germany— a logical move If the high command had decided that it was impossible to check the Russian sweeps through Hungary and Poland toward Czecho-Slovakia.
