Churchill Leaves Moscow After 10-Day Conference By HENRY SHAPIRO MOSCOAV, Oct. 21. (UP)—Prime Minister Churchill was on his way back to London today after 10 days of conferences with Premier Stalin at which they agreed on decisive blows to defeat Germany and made "important progress" toward solving the Polish problem. High Allied sources said the two leaders also co-ordinated their policies toward southeastern Europe, including the Balkans, and agreed on a common policy toward Yugoslavia which they believed would lead to ultimate harmony between King the Polish exile government in London and the Soviet-backed Polish National Liberation Committee at Lublin. Stanislaw Mikolajczky, premier of the exile government, preceded Churchill back to London with concrete proposals to submit to his cabinet. There were high hopes that a unified government for liber, ated Poland soon may be established. Mlkolajczyk emerged beaming and happy from his final conference with Stalin and Churchill \Vednes FISHING VESSEL GROl'NUEO LAGl'NA HKAC11, Oct. 21.

Approval of I'nited States The conferences were held with the full approval of the United States government and American Ambassador AA". Averell Harriman. who attended as an observer, left Moscow simultaneously with Prime Minister Churchill yesterday to report to Washington. Stalin accorded Churchill and British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden an unprecedented honor by going to Moscow airport personally gallon told the United Press that it would be "wrong to assume that the London Poles have lost all sense of reality." Allied circles said Mikolajcxyk did not expect insuperable difficulties in his efforts to win over his London colleagues to the compromises tentatively agreed jpon here. Unless an eleventh-hour snag develops, it was said, Mikolajczyk probably will be assured a high office in liberated Poland when he next returns to Moscow. Russia recognized the liberation committee as the gov to bid them farewell. It was the j erning authority in areas of Poland first time Stalin has personally ac companied foreign dignitaries to the airport since the start of the war and diplomatic observers hailed the gesture as symbolic of the friendship and substantial achievements of the two leaders. Polish Progress On the Polish problem, Churchill, Stalin and their ,fellow conferees considerably narrowed the gap between conflicting views held by Britain and Russia, as well as by freed by the Red army after breaking relations with the London government in April, 194,1. In the military sphere, little can be revealed at this time of the result of the Stalin-Churchill discussions. However, it was made known that Stalin and Churchill reviewed comprehensively the plans for winning the European war drafted at Teheran and Quebec and co-ordinated Anglo-American and Soviet policy for the final phase of the campaigns. Cnuiinucil From rose One opened up Ihe possibility of envelopment of the Insterburg rail hub which is only about 20 miles from the Russian spearhead. Loss of this point would disrupt Nazi defense maneuvers. German concern about East Prussia, was emphasized by the A'oelkischer Beobachter in an article entitled "Kast Prussia in Danger." The article told how Volslrum battalions are prepared to "fight against the ruthless enemy who endangers our East Prussia." Admit Helgnule Loss Acknowledging the loss of Belgrade, the Nazis claimed the Yugoslav capital was held as long as was necessary to evacuate their forces northward. Reports from M. S. Handler, I'nited Press staff correspondent in Moscow, quoted the Red Army newspaper, Red Star, as reporting that Nazi casualties, in Belgrade were "very high" due to the stubborn resistance put up. In the final stage of the battle, Red Star said, a Danube flotilla of Soviet and Yugoslav river craft shelled the city and river crossings. Moscow communiques slill failed to confirm enemy reports of a big- scale Soviet campaign against East Prussia, but the Nazis claimed thai Russian forces were attackin." the province botli from the east arid south. 15 Miles Inside Heidi One uncredited Berlin report carried by the Daily Express said that fighting was raging along a 50-mile front 15 miles inside East Prussia. It also said thai Soviet troops had opened a new drive northward toward the eastern German outpost from above. AA'arsaw. A Soviet communique disclosed that Marshal Rodion Y. MallnovEky'B Second Ukrainian Army bad reached within 111 miles cast of Budapest in capturing Debrecen, Hungary's third largest city. The conquest of Debrecen, after a bitter 10-day battle, opened the way for a drive northward for a junction with General Ivan I.

The latest Allied reports indicated the First Army was some P.O miles from Ihe Ilhineland stronghold at the nearest point west of Durcn.) Karly today the Xa/.is fired propaganda leaflets into the American lines east of Aachen, boasting of German's strength and the rigors of the oncoming winter. Knock Hole in Lieutenant-General George S. Pnt- ton pulled a new trick out of the bag to smack Ihe Germans through the air where it would hurt the worst—at Uieu/e, collection point for Xaxi equipment and prob.-tble nerve center for any possible counterat- .lack toward Nancy. Twenty-four Thunderbolts, each carrying a 1-ton bomb, swooped down on the Lake Rtnng de Lindre Dam at " p. m. yesterday and knocked a yawning gap in the 25-foot high harrier next to the sluice gate controlling the waters of the 15UO-acre lake. Six direct lilts by the Thunderbolts opened up a 50-foot gap in the clam, and the current rushed down on Dieuze, 7 1 -.. miles behind the German lines in the. area of Chateau Salins. The airmen, attacking through an intense curtain of anti-aircraft fire, saw the water iiotiring down from Ihe lake, and today it was reported rising steadily above an estimated 2-foot level in the streets of the communications hub below the Saar basin. Hits ou Gun Over Met/ yesterday a liaison plane spotted a shed believed to conceal one oC the big German railway gun.s which have been harrying Patton's army. Artillery scored tit) hits near the shed and four direct hits on the building, which went up in a terrific, explosion followed by fire. The new Canadian drive north of Antwerp was reported developing swiftly. One column of Ihe three- way push drove through the village of Ca-mpthout, 11 miles north of Antwerp on the railway to Bergen, opposite Zoom, and due east of the main part of the Schelde estuary. Another reached Wuestwexel, fi miles east of Campthout, 3 miles below the Dutch border, and 1(1 miles south of the big transport center of Bredn. A front dispatch reported "very difficult" fighting in that area, but said the Canadians were slugging forward steadily. To the west, where Canadian units were at Ihe entrance to the Beveland peninsula flanking the Schelde estuary on the north, the positions were reported static. Across the estuary, slow but steady progress was reported in the Breskens pocket, with Ihe Canadians pushing across flat country laced with waterways and swept by gunfire. $aber«fie«> CaKfornian Saturdoy, October 21,1944 ]\ FAKKXVKIJ.
