IUPI—The battle for Aachen, apparently Is drawing o a close, but the lighting remains hard and bitter. The Naul garrison has been reduced to nil estimated COO men. American big yuns were firing point blank at the remaining forllftai- tlons In the ruined city today. Some of Ihe heavy military was laying down barrages as close as IS feel ahead of the American infantry. And already the Germans have run up white flags of surrender tivci several of their key pillboxes. Hill despite the American ilnt, of steel around the city and (hi blanket of shcllllrc, several Nax trucks broke through to Aachen early today, bringing Ihe bcslcpec garrison food and amimmlllon, supplies to enable them lo light a little longer. Kcllef Forces Kliistal And while American hciivy uuns pounded whatever Is left of Aachen, other batteries apparently have broken up n thrcnlchbd full scale Aachen, at least for the time holng. The Na/.ls were known lo be mussing for a major nllack, a blow aimed flt breaking the First''Army lines armmd the city. But several hmi.lrcd American big (jmis ponced more than 0000 shells In the enemy's infantry and armor.

Controlling wind erosion by cover crops, strip cropping, row direction and locust shelter belts, this farmer of sandy land has increased his cotton yield per acre from 210 pounds to 765 pounds for the highest yield in this section for that type soil.

Most of this land lies in the western part of Mississippi County's 415,000 acres of land in cultivation. Started five years ago when Mr. Ray purchased the farm at |»ssl- bly the lowest price ever paid for cultivated land In this fertile county, because the former owner believed the land was to be destroyed by wind erosion, the farm now not only produces the brat of cotton but corn, soybeans, vetch, and rye, along with miscellaneous crops grown to make his farming progvapv complete. ' : -' • ' •-' ; He builds up his land by an Intensive use of vetch and protects It from the wind by locus trees planted around the entire farm and across every 20 acres with these trees running east and west. The strip cropping Is done by planting the cover crops of vetch and rye In 10 foot widths alternately through the fields of cotton, corn and soybeans with wfdtli depending on how sandy the soil Is. On the average these strips arc planted every 35 rows In fields of cotton and other crops. Tills is done at a minimum cost because he saves his own seed for cover crops and locust trees arc obtained for $2.50 per 1009 from tlie state forestry commission through the county extension service.

Dill the reinforced Russian Army toppled Szeged, their second city, and rnllcd lo within an hour's automobile drive of Budapest. When Admiral Horthy dickered with the Allies for armistice terms, Nazi troops an,| Hungarian Fascist's snatched both Budapest and Horlhy. Hungary was to remain Germany's friend whether it liked It or not. Hitler Is determined lo keep Budapest for n number of reasons. First, he needs the products of its Industry. In addition to the clly's pre-war factories, the Germans have added a Nfesserschmltt plant and numbers of machine' plants. Second, Hitler ncwis the city's communications facilities. Fourteen railroads converging there. Danube traffic flows In and out. And arterial highways spread toward Austria, Germany, Romania and YiiROslavla. But more than that, Budapest Is the guardian . of the Hungarian plain, which shelves through Austria Into Germany. Tills flatland Is gullied by the broad Danube, whose valley is an invasion road into the heart of Nazi Europe. Thus, Budapest is the lock on the back-door to Germany. And the Russian Army is determined to blast it away. ,, Wow, with banks nm t,bp heaters' clos- , - ing .'.ill :m'ld-dny.
