The sixth may bring final defeat. In the old days, spring, summer and fall were seasons of victory for Nazi arms. It was in spring that Hitler toppled Denmark, Norway, The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg, it was in summer that he defeated Prance, accepted Italy as an ally, herded the British out of Crete and invaded Russia. It was in fall that he trampled Poland, won some of his greatest Russian triumphs and began the bombing of Britain, But winter brought defeat, With winter came sub-zero Russian temperatures that froze a finger to n. gun barrel, with winter came white-clad Russian soldiers, seemingly innoculated against the cold. With winter came frigid blasts ripping through bomb-blasted Nazi homes. • Winter to the Germans meant Stalingrad. For Hitler, the war's winters have been getting progressively 1 worse. The first ones weren't so bad. In the winter of 1930-40, the Nazis had just polished off Poland. So they rested up and glared balefutly at Britain and France. In the winter of 1940-41, Germany paused to assimilate the loot of the lowlands and sent tlie Luftwaf- fe against Britain. But then the winters began to bite the Germans. The winter of 1941-42 was the first they spent on the frozen wastelands of Russia. In it the Soviets swung to the offensive for the first time and eliminated the threat to Moscow. The next winter, 1942-'43, was even worse. Then, the tide turned at Stalingrad and El Alemein. It was the winter in which the Allies loundAthc road back. In the; east, Germany lost 500,000 men'at Stal- .ingrad.„, 3Vi. Riissiaiis.;.:lift- •..J/ie Wehrmacht.^wlth, -a'yjcoia'fwea'thtr offensive that, in four months and 20 days,_ re-conquere'd over 185,000 square,miles and,inflicted over one million casualties! in the south, the British began a November drive at El Alemein which started Rommel on the road out of Africa. In the west, the bombing offensive hit a new high. But last winter was the worst of all. Last winter was the winter of Tehran, when the Germans lost all hope of splitting the Allies. Last winter was the winter of the great air raids, when Berlin became a torch to light Hitler's dark continent. Last winter was the winter when Hie Allies began to walk the Italian gangplank to Europe. Last winter was the first in which Hitler was minus the services of his ally, Mussolini. Seasons of Defeat As a matter of fact, the last two winters have been so successful for the Allies that spring, summer and fall have ceased to be seasons of victory for the Wehrmacht. Now all seasons arc seasons of defeat. It was in spring that the Allies won their final triumph in Tunisia. It was in summer that they In- vnded Sicily, Italy and France. And It was in fail that they Invaded Germany itself, from two directions. But this winter will be the worst of all for Hitler. The once proud German army has shrunk from eight to two million men. The German airforce from five thousand to 1500 planes. The German navy to almost nothing. Gone are the fertile stolen lands of Russia, France, Belgium, Holland, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Greece, and Finland. This winter the Germans must live on the food they raise at home, themselves. They must find in their own backyard the ma'- icrials In patch bomb-torn homes. 3n previous winters they got what they needed from the land they'd over-run. Now all they get from those countries is black hate. The only consolation remaining to the Germans as they face their sixth winter of war is this: Niunbcr six Is the last ill the series. B-29s Reported In Observation Flight To Tokyo Japanese Air Force Apparently Did Not Challenge Superforts Hy United Pre^s Allied military observes Indicate that the Japanese air force may be in iis critical a condition as the enemy's soundly beaten Imperial Fleet, The basis for such speculation Is a Tokyo radio report announcing that American B-29 bombers have' made their third daylight reconnaissance flight over Tokyo mid Honshu island in less than a week.' The enemy radio says two of cur supeibomber shuttled over the heart of Japan's Industrial area for more than an hour, in observation- flights obviously foreshadow ing raids to come. But Tokyo doesn't explain how the 13-29s managed' to spend CO minutes unmolested over the potentially "hottest" targets in Japan. The Jap radio claims the Super forts "fled" to the south, after their prolonged reconnaissance flight. But, it's easily possible that tbe 00 minutes were more than enough time for speedy air giants Navy Enlists Eight Eight young men of this scclion were enlisted in the Navy during the past month through the Bly- thcvtlle Recruiting office. They were: Sam James Lockridgc and Chester Tunny Hargelt of Bly- thcville, Freddie Byrus Bannister of Osccola, Scott Estcl Brickey of Lcachville, Virgil Arthur Davis and J. R. James of Steele, Mo., Charles Frank Porter of Caruthersville, Mo., and Herman D. Pruitt of Cardwcll Mo. Exhausts Emergency fund LITTLE ROCK, Nov. 7. (UP) — The $100,000 governor's emergency fund lias been exhausted. The fund was exhausted when Governor Adkins transferred the remaining $700 to the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission Monday to pay the salary of a petroleum geologist-geophyeist. accomplish their mission. And enemy radio makes no claim that either of the two planes was ilamaged, a tact admission of apparently ineffective defense. Expect B-29s to Return In fact, Tokyo bluntly warns the Japanese to expect further the return of the mammoth planes, saying the next time it may mean a -aid. However,-the absence of strong •nemy air resistance might, on the other hand, mean only that Japan is saving Its dwindling pilots and planes for a bitter fight against B-29s, when they Jilt the-enemy homeland again. '• The',War Department is silent Sn-.V:;ic«_!itire-Jap story. Nor docs il confirm or deny a Tokyo • clalrri that Japanese airmen hit American cir bases in the Marianas. The un- varifled enemy report claims 20 Yank bombers were set afire on the ground. : Pacific Fleet headquarters provides one reason for Japan's de- t la ted air power over'the Philippines. Navy authorities say an unofficial count reveals more than 4200 Japanese planes have been shot down or destroj-etl on the ground In the past ten weeks. It's pointed out that, many of the enemy piajnes in this staggering total were rushed to the Philippines when the American invasion was launched on Leyte. Airmen from the American Third Fleet, report 'Manila harbor and five airports ringing the capital of the Philippines have been severely damaged by carrier-plane raids Sunday, in addition, eight '•. Jap ships were sunk or damaged and 191 Nip planes shot from the air or destroyed aground. Jap Ship Losses High Chungking reports fighters and bombers from the 14th Air Force sank 23 Japanese ships during October. It adds that the American airmen added a toll of 15 other enemy vessels probably sunk for an overall total of 74,000 tons of shipping during the month. On Leyte, two American forces are squeezing the Island's remaining Japanese garrison In a nutcracker offensive against the west coast port of Ormoi;. One American column is driving the last 12 miles on Ormoc from the south, while the American force north of the city is whittling down its 16-mile race for the port city. The official Netherlands news agency says the Japanese have turned two villages in Java and Sumatra. In to a shambles as the Nazis did at Lidice in Czechoslovakia. A dispatch from Ceylon says the enemy treated inhabitants of the little towns with savage cruelty, and that part.of the torture included burial alive.
