A Red Army junction wi;h Mm- shal Titos Partisan fon es in Yugoslavia which would cut off Xa/.i forces in Bulgaria and Cireei.-e, appeared imminent. Warsaw Ur<>;iMI>rniigh The drivf toward Yugoslavia camp simultaneously with a 'lied Armv bteiiklnrough in the strong German defenses north of Warsaw after five weeks of furious tank battles and hand-to-hand fighting along the •ill-mile front from the Polish capital to Kast Prussia. Alalinovsky's tanks and eavaliy were advancing almost at will westward across the \Vallachian plains and were expected | () reach the Yugoslav border below the historic Dauubian iron gates in record time. The armored columns raced 70 miles in one day through Rumania to t hi' big railway junction of Crainva. 111' miles west of Bucharest and only 4S miles from Yugoslavia. Control Kails Malinovsky's forces were spread along a L'"0-mile arc from northwest to southwest of Bucharest and gained control of every important tail junction in Wallaehia with the capture of Pitcsli and Rosiorri de Verde. , r i(i miles west and southwest of the Rumanian capital. With the imminent junction of the Ukrainian troops and Tito's patriots, the campaign in Wallaehia virtually i was concluded and almost all of Ru- j mania, excepting Transylvania, was i in Soviet hands. \ The thrust toward Yugoslavia prac- Itically clost'd a trap on German | armies in Bulgaria. At Craiova. Malinovsky's troops were only 1 MI miles north of Sofia, while the Third Ukrainian army held firmly a HI- milp section of the Rumanian-Bulgarian frontier from the Black si a to the Danube ferry crossing at (Jlurgiti. In the breakthrough north of Warsaw, General Georgi JSakharnv's Second White Russian Army and Marshal Konstanlin Rokossnvsky's First White Russians joined on the Bug river in a flanking drive that threatened to split Ihe German forces between Kast Prussia and the Polish capital. Almost the entire territory between the Bug and Xarew rivers was cleared by Xakharov's troops and was expected to open the way for a frontal assault on Warsaw by the armored forces under Rokossovsky. The First White Russian Army last was reported at Cegielne, 9 miles northeast of Praga, a heavily fortified bastion protecting the eastern approaches to Warsaw. All along the front north of the Polish capital, tl* Germans were fighting fiercely and suffered severe losses in the desperate but futile attempts to stem the Soviet advances. .More than Moo Germans were killed as Zakharov's troops marched Iti miles from Xowa Wies to the Xarew at Poplawy, 28 miles due north of Warsaw. Plans for Reducing Army After Nazi Defeat Told will be c.'nntlnupi! Frr released who is | snlili needed." Meanwhile, (lie navy will not reduce its strength after Germany's defeat, but on the contrary will t;o on expanding it. until it reaches an authorized peak of :!."91 .Olid officers and enlisted personnel by next. July. The navy lias a demobilization plan similar in principle to the army's, but "Ihe navy cannot dernoboli/e until Japan is defeated." Secretary. James Forrestal said. lie added that whatever happens in Kurope. Ihe Japanese war will be a "long and hard one." I'review (liven Army The House military affairs committee was triven a preview of the army's 'readjustment and partial deirxibolization plan" at a hearing \esterday. chairman Andrew J. May (D-Ky.i. said afterward that Ihe plan had been "made solely and only with a view to fair treatment" to all concerned, subject to military necessity. With that. lie said. "tile committee agrees." The war department said its plan "will provide some reduction in the army's ground forces and initially less in the service forces and in the air forces." The nature of war in the Pacific and the importance of supply, it was explained, will militate against early discharge of many air and supply personnel. Hut "as replacements become available from the ground forces and from new induct ions." the war department promised, "the air he service forces will fair share of men pro- with the ground lorces and discharue : portionate forces.' McKittrick Civic Club Slates Meet McKITTRiriC, Sept. 6.—Accord- Ing to invitations being mailed to the resilients of the McKittrick arra, the McKittrick Civic Club will hold its first meeting of the fall season Thursday for the election of officers and the discussion of various civic problems confronting the com- i mtinity. Vice-president W. G. Christiansen -will preside. New Inductions The reference to "new inductions" made it plain that ihe army's plans are being made on the assumption thai selective service will be continued until the end of the war on boih sides of the world. After Hie Kuropcan war. some army units will have to be retained for occupation duty. Others will be sent directly to Japan. Still others will be transferred to other areas, reorganized and redesiH- natcd. Some will lie inactivated. "Briefly," the war department said, the plan for the return of noncssenlial soldiers to civilian life will start with the assembly in the United States of men declared surplus, to the needs of each overseas theater and to the major commands in the United States. From among these men some will be designated essential, and a substantial number will tie designated as nonesseiitial to the new military needs of the army and will be returned to civilian life according to certain priorities." Separation Centers Discharges will be through army separation centers, five of which already are ill operation. A total of 1 IS are contemplated, so distributed that tho army will be able to discharge soldiers close to their homes. The priority system, which will be used both in selecting surplus men for return to the United Slates and in selecting those to be discharged, was evolved by experts who sent into the field "to obtain a cross-section of the sentiments of enlisted men. ' After Germany's defeat, an adjusted service rating card will be issued to all enlisted personnel. On it will be scored four factors which will determine "priority of sepa ration": im r.igc One * "1. Service credit—based upon the total number of months of a tiny service since 1 September in. HMO. "J. Overseas credit—bused upon the number of months served overseas. ".1. Combat credit—based upon the first and each additional award to the individual of the Medal of Honor. Distinguished Service Cross, Lesion of Merit. Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, Soldier's Medal, Bronze Star Medal, Air Medal. l j urple Heart, and Bronzes Service Stars (battle participation stats). "•1. Parenthood credit—which gives credit for each dependent child under IS years up to a limit of throe children." The value of the point credits will lie announced after cessation of hostilities in Europe. Depend on Ships Tin- return of surplus men to the I'nitcd States will depend on the number of ships available. A majority of vessels going to Europe, the war department said, "will continue on to the Pacific laden with troops and supplies for that distant campaign." The "readjustment and partial demobilization" plan also will be applied in active theaters, like the southwest Pacific. The plan will apply similarly to troops stationed in the f'nited States, although these troops will service as the main reservoir of replacements for overseas duty. In the case of officers, military necessity alone will determine which ones are nonessential, the war department said. Xonessential officers will be released "as they (•an be spared." The priority plan will work in the same way for members of the Women's Army Corps except that the WACS will be treated as a separate group. Moreover, a \V.\C whose husband has boon discharged will be released upon application. Kven though found nonossenlial under the plan, no man who wants to stay in the army will be "forced out" if he can be "usefully employed." Boy, 15, Is Suspect in Hit, Run Death Sam Scott, Jr., 15, Koute •(, Box oOJ, is being held in the juvenile home and will probably be eited for hit and run driving in connection with an automobile accident.

Sept. fi. — police announced today that they were looking for a California automobile and its two quarreling occupants in effort to solve the mystery of two unidentified bodies which have been found near Conservancy Beach. . . The body of a woman, apparently about 1)5 years old, was found last niRht, about 75 yards from the spot, where the body of a '.'(l-month-old boy was found yesterday. • Autopsies showed that both the woman and the baby had died by drowning. The boy, a brown-eyed, blond baby was dressed in red corduroy overalls, blue socks and brown shoes. The woman was wearing a dark dress and a light tan jacket. The California automobile entered the case when it was reported to police that the child had been seen in the car at an Albuquerque parking lot. Also in the car were a man and a woman, quarreling violently. The woman whose body was found at the beach, however, was not the woman who had been seen in the CHI', police said.
