Except for the Mosquito attack on Berlin, which was hit from clear skies with two-ton blockbusters, the weather apparently stopped R. A. F. heavies last night, ending- tho uninterrupted round-the-clock bombardment of which began last Friday. During those six days, American Flying- Fortresses and Libera- tors.«md R. A. F. Laneasters and Hallfaxes from Rritsh bases alone flumped HII estimated IKl.dOO tons of explosives and incendiaries on Germany. Tn addition, Italian-based bomb- «rs dropped an uncounted tonnage on southern Germany and adjoining occupied countries. During the last three days of the offensive, Allied bombers and fighters destroyed at least HS8 German planes as the luftwaffe made its first determined sirmcl In the battle of Germany. More than -5000 planes were thrown into the. offensive yesterday Irom Britain, France and Italy in attacks on oil refineries, war plants, troop concentrations and Iransportallon lines. 1944T.B.

Hafefrrftelb Califorolan Thursdoy, September 14, 1944 7 From where I sit... / Joe Marsh. Soldiers vs. Civilians in Tomorrow's World You hear some talk about how— •when the war is over—there's going to be bad feeling between soldiers and civilians; how the country will be divided into those who fought in uniform and those who stayed at home. Well, maybe yon saw that let* tcr from a soldier overseas, in one of onr big magazines. It said that men in uniform aren't thinking any snch thoughts— any more than folks at home are. The most important thing is, that we're oil engaged in one titanic struggle to preserve our freedom and our righta-not just as soldiers or civilians-but as Americans! From where I sit, that attitude Is going to win the war—and win the Peace too. If we can respect the rights of others-whether it's their right to enjoy a glass of beer, or to rote the way they please—we've got a mighty sound foundation for our peacetime world.
