Die one hard mobile force In France capable of challenging the Allied approach to Germany. Von Kluge needed this force desperately. As far as the Allies have teen able to learn, there is not other panzer group on any of the crumbling German fronts except the six or seven divisions trying to i,«m the Russian advance near War- Saw. •And so, the German commander fought hard to save this precioiis hoard of armor which could not be "placed. The difficult job of prying open the jaws of the Allied trap was given to grenadiers and paratroops drawn from the fanatical Hitler Youth divisions or name outfits like "the Hermann Goering." These troops can and will fight to the last man to hold any position considered vital. The Russians discovered that and her Allies arc discovering it now. : But on tlic other hand, every time the Germans buy a little time by holding open such a trap through the reckless.spqnding of their man- Rower, their losses leave them that much weaker.. And even the S-S fanatics arc weakening under that kind of hopeless pounding. \Vhen the German armor made good its escape earlier this week the problem facing General Eisenhower was how to destroy it south of the Seine river. This would be'an all-important achievement—if accomplished. It would .allow Eisenhower to pick his own spots to choose where to go In Prance with the assurance that the Germans ffould not come close to matching >iiis armored power. New Trap Set . With tliis victory In mind, the Allied commanders started to throw a new net around the llecing German divisions, one which would pin them against the Seine. General Patten's flying columns raced toward Paris to seal oft the Nazis from the south. Thc Canadians, in a new offensive east of Caen, speared forward from the north. The jaws of tills new trap started to close around the Nazis yesterday The German high command was laced with an important decision— whether to buy more time or save their badly-needed armor for thn inevitable battles on the approaches to Germany. The answer conies today from the German radio and In dispatches froni Allied correspondents on the field. The Germans appear to be withdrawing across the Seine. One official commentator frankly admits that the battle for Normandy Is; over, that Germany has lost the contestants in amounts ranging this Ihe help nnd cooperation of lor Chamber of residents of Mississippi County who [tig (lie event ore interested In seeing this annual • has been chair- event continue.
