Patton's American Third Army hammers at the German fprts which girdle Metz and Thionville, the real battle for Germany is being fought far to the rear, along supply lines reaching from ports on the channel and North Sea to Allied supply dumps and warehouses just back of the fighting front. Since American and British armies outr ran their supplies of ammunition, gasoline and food early in September the problem of moving the vast quantities of these Btores needed to sustain an offensive has been the principal cause for the slowdown of the war. From the time of the D-Day landing of the Allies at their beachhead in Normandy up to the very recent past it has been necessary to bring ashore the vast tonnage of equipment needed in makeshift, harbors and artificially constructed ports. The capture of French ports and their reconditioning, together with the recent partial opening of the undamaged Belgian itJier-- 7 --'-IT--.--Jay J J,f It's David Niven's story, relayed by Bing Crosby: A homesick Yank soldier was drinking warm beer in a London pub.

Around these, taking advantage of hilly terrain well adapted to defense, are constructed circles of outpost-forts of consiberable strength.

Patton's fighting men, the Yanks will be still faced by the positions of the Maginot Line, a dozen miles to the east of Metz, and beyond the Maginot Line, the powerful defensive zone of the Siegfried Line built on difficult hilly country where the army on the defenne has all the advantages.

And 1 don't love Laura." "But you do love Anne." Russell moved in hi chair. "1 must tell you, Dan. Loving Anne I madness. She married. She told me so.

It was only a few minutes later when he switched out the lights and went out to sit on the porch Russell was smoking and looking out over the moon-silvered waters.
