It would be symbolic of the Allied command's confidence in victory if history were able to say the final battle of Germany started in the rain and mud or unfavorable winter conditions.

It is reported unwilling to accept the boundary' adjustment demanded by Russia unless Lvov remains Polish, and unless the new boundary is guaranteed a-gainst future violation. "'. Observers believe this creates an impasse which makes settlesments all but impossible.
