Dolores Simpkens and Fdith ] grains scheduled on that day -By HAL 'Zj Dec. 14.' UP)—On a j Saturday two lyears ago the forces j of a dying nation began a last con-1 vulsive struggle that turned the j static western front into a blood ! bath and electrified America. j It was the opening of the famous | "battle of the bugle," a. wintry de- ! feat which the American army | turned into victory at 'one of the | highest prices in its history. ': What memories' are stirred un •• j this day in the hearts of survivors ' of that ghastly prolonged night-' mare in Belgium's bitter snow: The Germans came without warning as they had for centuries. They came by 'the same roads they travelled in 1914 and 1940. . ,". They came, in tanks and armored cars in the early morning hours, swirling through the darkness like hailstones of steel, straight through the Sehnee Eiffel, that loneome "snow ridge" where the 106th infantry division, new to battle, waited . . . They came by every road . . . ' across every hill . . . with Hitler's- prize S. S. men in the lead. . . , j Gay Days'for S. S. j Those wtre gay days for the S. S. i bo.\ s. . . They shot down a force I of Americans herded with hands up into a field near Malmedy. . . They ' shot down Belgian civilians. . . It 1 was their las't big blood letting. . . i They came out of the skies by ! paiachute. . . They sifted through 1 the lines in- captured clothing and captured jeeps. . . . And every Ameucan soldier was suspicious of his biot her m uniform and cliecked on him with questions about who -non the World Series and who was the fii^-t President. . . . One Xegro trucktlmer. tired of the questions, told a load guard . . . "Quit this tomfoolery, white boy, and let me git on with my load. . . . You i I ain't one of them Xazis. . , ." Catches Them The Germans surrounded some . AniPiicau outfits and bounced off] other-- . . .They drove their tanks j to within goalsigln of the Mouse. • . . . And Major General Ernie Har- BOYLE mon's "hell on wheels" tankmen caught 'them after a hundred-mile; night ride and turned their proudest armor into a junkyard at Celles.. At. immortal Bastogne the paratroop commander said "nuts" to en- who wanted him- and "old blood nnd guts" Patton came, with a hell-for- leather charge and chased the Boche al! the way to Austria. . . Quit Laughing The Germans quit laughing and smoking cigars and posting for photographs beside long lines of A'lieriean prisoners filing oast. . . . After Christmas tho bulge began to bend back out of Belgium and. into the Reich again. . . . But American tankmen were trading three to. five Shermans to knock out dug-in: .Royal Tigers oh icy roads. . . . The fields were snow- covered ami wounded men ..some- * times were covered by falling flakes and died in their soft coverlet. . . . Medics had to carry syrettes in their armpits to keep the morphine from freezing. . , . Doughboys lay in foxholes until they froze up to the thighs and had to be carried to rear hospitals. . . . They were too tired and weak to weep when their useless . legs were taken off. . . . Many boys saved their foot by cutting up blankets and making wool footcov- ers. . •'. . By New Tear's they were back on the road to victory and in mid- January, Allied supreme headquarters lifted the veil on a bloo3y box score:- the Nazis 120,000 casualties, America 55,421. . . . They are scattered now, the Germans who gambled and the Americans who won, and the only strangers who inhabit the mountainous Ardennes are the dead who fought there. Time has flowed over the land and healed it of• wounds except for the scarred trees, the skeletons of lost tanks, the forests of white crosses. The battle issues are still being fought—at Lake Success and Flushing Meadows. ;> i OVERHEAD GARAGE AERO Made of Aluminum . . . Complete with Hardware Single door 7*feet high by 8 feet wide.
