We bought him a uniform just like Pete's." Gary, Sr., said the boy's arm was amputated a year ago after a serious burn from an electric iron.

I'nited }-'ress (.'nrrespnnilent Jack Frnnkloh reported tlm encirclement of Aachen, first bis: <!ermaii city to rome within the .masp of the American expeditionary force. Fall Soon ''The f:i!l nf the rity is expected soon," Frankish ndded. Karller in the day Franklsh looked down on Aachen from raptured heights to the south, and described it as something of a ghost town, with little activity to lie seen and the only German gunfire coming from points outside the key post in the Siegfried Line. The gap in the cordon around Aachen apparently was closed when Hodges' mobile ' units smashed through Maastricht, watchdog fortress- of lower Holland, ntid eastward more than It miles Into the fatherland abovfi Aachen. Kven before the new bonier cross- Ing, the Yanks were edfrinff in Hgitlnst Aachen from three directions, while an armored spearhead clawed ou eastward to the area of Stolberg, five miles beyond Aachen. I'nited Press Correspondent Robert r. Richards, in a dispatch filed tonight from Lieutenant-General George S. Patton's Third Army front, reported the fall of Nancy and said the first stapes of the battle for Met/, final German bastion between the Moselle and the Siegfried Line, now had begun. Richards said a greater part of (he German garrison was believed to have left Nancy, 30 miles below Metx, yesterday when they were confronted with a growing menace from French patriots. But a small force of officers and men remained until today, and the Americans marched in with scarcely a shot fired. Third Army observers believed the Germans would evacuate Metz, as they did Nancy, when they realized the weight of the, mounting pressure being exerted by Patton's forward elements, Nancy, historic capital of the old Lorraine province, was the richest prize to fall to P tton's men since a supply shortage slowed them up at the end of a lightning sweep across FYance. The city of 120,000 is 42 miles south of the German border, and trunk railways and highways fan eastward to all of western Germany. Determined American infantrymen walked into the city of Nancy Hi- most without firing a shot at about. 11 a. m. today, Richards reported, adding: "This opens the path for a smash over the fine roads into the rich underbelly of the Saar and makes possible an outflanking movement to the north which well could ren der the fortress of Metz untenable for the Germans." Promising: Advance A dispatch from Lieutenant-General Omar N. Bradley's Twenty-first Army group headquarters said Patton's advance below Nancy "continued to develop most promisingly." The dispatch, coupled with Nazi admissions of Impressive American advances beyond Nancy, suggested that Third Army mobile units might have, broken out of the constricting Nazi defenses and opened the way for a spurt to the German border. A communique of the French forces of the Interior said the French opened an attack against the Germans in Nancy yesterday and "this morning the town was completely liberated." The communique said the Aube and Yonne departments, in which severe fighting had occurred in the last few weeks, wore entirely free of Germans, and the last enemy elements had been wiped out in the Nievre department. As the First Army stabbed well Into Germany nt three places to lead the general advance into the, Siegfried Line fortifications, Berlin acknowledged that the Americans were east of Aachen and claimed that 40 United States tanks were knocked out in fighting south and east of the city yesterday 'In tho Aachen area the Americans succeeded in penetrating Into several strong points of the West Wall fortifications under the strong- rom r.ift*> On*» ! f-.-t. concentration of tank and mo- i torl/ed forces," the Transocean new* ; agency said. | "Knomy resistance in Holland Is i "sporadic," a United- Freas dispatch from First Army headquarters said in rii^closlnsf the new American breakthrough. The Yanks apparently crossed the border around the Dutch city of Maastricht, which Berlin snid was "lost" to strong American I armored forces. Another field dispatch said American infantrymen, now only a mile or IP?? from the gates of Aachen. were In firm control of wooded heights overlooking the city from the ea«t. south, and west, threatening momentarily to break into th* big communications center. A First Army tank spearhead, meanwhile, thrust Into Germany below Aachen, hooked up to the northeast and drove 5 miles beyond the city, ripping up the fixed outer works of the Seigfried line In it* path. Push Into Line The American armor, United Press War Correspondent Jack Franklsh ported from the Aachen front, "Has pushed into the full depth of the SeiRfried Line." The bulk of the First Army front was well into Germany and meeting: determined and, at times, fanatical oppostion from the Nazi fortress troops. Field dispatches said the Americans were battering- slowly forward through a maze of tank traps and artillery emplacements on a line extending as much as 10 miles Into the Reich from Aachen to Trier, against resistance that appeared to be stiffening hourly. Hitler's last great defense line In the west swayed in the balance as the Nazis broke off their headlong retreat and turned to fight in force. "Now that the final, showdown battle has been joined along: the greater part of the First Army front, it is obvious that it is not going to be. any walkaway," United Press War Correspondent Joseph W. i Grigg reported from the Twelfth Army group's headquarters. American army men and United Press correspondents moving Into Germany with Lieutenant-General Courtney H. Hodges' First Army spearheads said the Yanks were forced to slug their way ahead yard by yard through saw-toothed con. crete barriers and other antitank devices under continuous and heavy fire from concealed artillery, motors and machineguns. "We have been slowed up but w« are far from stopped," a First Army spokesman said, disclosing that th* Nazis had launched strong but un- sucessful counterattacks at some points in the Siegfried Line. Both the American Third Army and the British Second on Hodges' southern and northern flank* continued to make progress against resistance that was very strong at some points and almost non-existent at others. Lieutenant-Genera] George S. Patton's Third • Army troops smashed southward along the Mosello after capturing Charmes and Mlracourt, the latter 25 miles below Nancy, but there was no official confirmation of a German report that the Yank* had driven 18 miles beyond the Moselle to Chateau Salins, 20 miles northeast of Nancy. But the main Allied attempt to break through the Siegfried forts and spill out into the Rhineland appeared to have centered for the moment on the First Army front, with Patton's men and the British striking hard against the enemy flank* in an effort to turn the West Wall. The deepest First Army penetration of German soil came In th* area above Prum, 42 miles south of Aachen, where headquarters said the Americans had pierced the Siegfried Line on a 6-mile front and driven to within a mile west of th* town.
