This road Is excellent In one rospect—it is a part of the flat 30.000 square-mile Hungarian plain. But across It stretches narrow 35-mlIe-long Lake Bala- llon. If the Russians can flow around Ihc barrier, cast and wcsl, they will have a clear path to Vienna, 100 miles beyond. But to reach the lake, the Soviets must capture Budapest anj cross to thc west bank of the Danube river. The fall of Budapest would be an economic as well as military setback to thc Germans. Thc city's electrical and flour-milling facilities arc among the best Ih Europe. In Its outskirts lie a Messer- schmllt planl, machine tool works, chemical, fire-arm and shoe factories. Foiirlecn railroads and many paved highways converge there, and Danube river traffic flows In and out. The fall of Budapest also would be a set-back to German prestige.
