(UP.)—We might as well face It: Barring a political collapse inside Germany, we won't be out of the foxholes by Christmas. For a month sWo the bold airborne descent on Holland, we have n;u on this salient. We have broadened Its flanks Just enough to protect the lifeline corridor up the middle of it. With 08 fighting days left before Christmas here is the situation: To the east, the Germans still have a broad bridgehead on this Hide of the Maas (Meuse). Our west flank is still exposed, and the Germans have thousands of troops between the Waal and Belgium. The Germans Htlll hold the most important communications centers—Bre3a, Tllburi?, 's Hertogenbosch. They still hold defense lines on the Waal and the Maas. Their campaign to destroy the channel ports vital to our buildup has been at least partially successful. By holding pockets on the Schelde they still deny us the use of Antwerp. The plain fact is wo have considerably extended our supply line. This applies to the American front as well as the British and Canadian fronts. This is as obvious to the Germans as it is to us, and we can expect a difficult fight on the west side of Holland for every communications center. This campaign to reinforce and shorten the supply and maintenance lines must be won before the battle for Germany can shift into high gear. Along the Overloon-Venray highway we are encountering the first mine fields of consequence since Normandy—evidence that the Germans have been busy during the breathing spell. A factor which military leaders have foreseen for two years now has come into play. While we have pursued the Germans, cutting their transport and armies to ribbons, wo have chased them back to the borders of Germany. In so doing, we have shortened to nearly one-third the defensive line they must maintain. . We have shattered their tanks and artillery all along the way, but what they have left is banked tread'to tread and hub to hub along the Siegfried Line. We are operating over territory they have held for four years and their guns are ranged In and operated at the very points on which they knew we must concentrate. Then there is the weather. Even if the normal rain and snow come, this country is going to be hell. Already the flat Dutch fields are bogs In which tanks cannot operate. The fighting must be done on the hard roads. And. it ia against them that the G*rman» can concentrate their mines, mortars, artillery and men. Reverend Gish Will. Teach Bible Classes The Reverend Charles C. Gish, evangelist and Bible teacher, who formerly was director of the Christian Service Center, will teach Bible classes at 7:30 p. m. every Thursday at the Y. M. C. A.
