XLI—NO. 132 TODAY'S WAR ANALY8U* Battle For France Hears End Of Trail By GI> KORRV United 1'ress Staff Writer The battle of France Is swiftly changing into the battle of Europe. Two barriers still delay the complete transition but they may have melted away by the end of the week. One Is Paris Itself, the Jieart which pumps the llfeblood of liberty to all France. The old French capital Is almost completely encircled, its fall a foregone conclusion. The American columns apparently . are going around thc city Instead of into II In an effort to spare the historic capital any damage. Aim At Kobot Coast Although Paris Is the hub of all French rail communication;;, the second hurdle Is by far thc most important—the destruction of the two German armies standing between the Allies and thc French robot bomb coast. When these two armies arc destroyed, it will mean the end of all serious fighting on thc approaches to Germany from thc west. Destruction definitely is in the cards for the retreating German Seventh Army. That once-powerful force Is facing annihilation between Ihc British hamnier and the Amer- .^ican anvil on the Seine. /Tpl'-' The reeling Germans are hardly -' an organized army any longer. Some divisions arc down from 10,000 me to .1000 or less. They are short o transport, short of guns and sho of any hope of help. At this very moment the Alllc armies are trying to knock out th bruiser! remnants of the once-pon erful German force on the sout side of the Seine. If they can d It. it is doubtful, thai the Germa armies will ever again be able t stand up and fight In France Fanatics Fight On Of course, the Germans sti have their SS name divisions an other, fanatic units capable of th most desperate sort/of reslstanc They showed that 'In the Palais pocket when they managed to hoi open the Jaws of the Allied tra Ion? enough to let the bulk of th Seventh Army slip out. ; That'escape, we now know was only from the frying pan lilt ;,-,tlie fire.

And f?herc\Is no prospect of sudden miraculous aid coming to give i (trength. The disorganized German' force., cow pinned against the Seine have no forces behind them to cushion their retreat, that Is, even If they managed to slip through this newest Allied net. Lose Most of Armor The 15th German Army defend. Ing the robot coast and the ap preaches to the Low Countries was stripped of its armored divisions In an effort to save the German: In Normandy and to prevent th< American tide from'flowing acres. the Seine. ' . It failed in both these aims. Am now these additional Panzer units, also are being crashed by the pulverizing Allied lami and air attack. The bulk of the remaining divisions in the 15th Army are of t defensive type, guarding the French coast from the Calais area to Dieppe against the Allied invasion that never came. Thus the !5th Army, stripped of ,;lts Panzers, sadly lacking in trans- Tort Is an immobile, defensive lorce, incapable of meeting quick maneuvers in a war of maneuver iinabla to match the tremendous striking force of the swift-moving Allied armored columns.

Here again they were sadly lacking In trans- All the Naris could do was sit and wait for the attack As a result, the German defenses quickly crumbled once they were outflanked. The Allied southern invasion was the least costly of all the major operations in thc Xvar. 15lh Army Faces Disaster The same thing happened in Brittany. The German defense was static, local, and hopeless. American colums quickly sheared off the entire peninsula, Isolating the German harbor garrisons, letting them rot In their stationary elta- . dels like grapes on a withered V ine. Even the most fanatic of ^ he German commanders, Colonel Von lAulock, the "Madman of St. Malo," had to capitulate In a short (ime.

To Inaugurate City Wide Lunch Project The Inauguration this Fall of a citywidc school lunch project was announced today by W. B. Nicholson, superintendent of thc public schools In Blytheville. Organized on an extensive scale, officials in charge of .the project hope to feed 50 to 50 per cent of thc entire student attendance at the city schools, or an average of from 1,000 to 1,200 children each day. Intensive planning and financing have been required to make such a large undertaking possible, Mr. Nicholson pointed out, and highly trained management will be required to car- ryit out successfully. .- •••Mrs. Gladys Longford of Joiws- .bpro, who. for'trie past four years has-been 'connected with the Food Distribution •• .

This Is expected to care for the children from high school, Junior high and Central Ward schools who desire to avail themselves of this service. Hot lunches also will be served at Lanee and nt the Hnr- rison school for Negroes. Mrs. Lnngford, as superintendent in charge of the entire program, will attend to all'purciiaslng for the entire group, will be in charge of menu planning and of the employing of all personnel In connection with the project. It is hoped to have, as far as practicable, a uniform daily manu in all schools,,' thus keeping down the cost of = the meals, Mr Nicholson .pointed' out.,'., ... ."•„,; r, A plate' 'lunch will 'be 'served;"td"- gether with' of milk for each child, at the maximum price ot 15c per' plate to all children who are able'to pay, while lunches also will be served without cosl to any child whom the Welfare Office certifies as unable to pay for his lunch. One of the outstanding problems yet to be solved, Mr. Nicholson stated, is that of securing an adequate source of milk supply so that each child will receive a half pint glass of milk with his lunch Operation of I he program necessarily will be sonicwlnit delayed, it was stated, as It will take some time to secure and install vital .equipment such us ranges, refrigerators and tables, but 11 is hoped tlmt tlie entire service will be underway before Fall. "I feel highly gratified over the prospects of behiE able to provide this lunch service In the schools/' Mr. Nicholson stated.
