Sovlrl Flank Secured With hi.s f l a n k now solidly secured by the sensational advances of the first Ukrainian army, Zhu- kov increased the attacks of his first White Russian army on Fueratenberg', the fortress in the southwestern corner of the Oder bend below Frankfurt. Fucrstenberg is 12 milea north of Gubon at the junction of the Neisse and Oder.' Presumably these attacks were preliminary to an aH-out asaault :o break past tht 1 Frankfurt- Kuestrin fortifications in a double- barrelled attack on Berlin from east nnd southeast. Broaden Assault in North At the same time the German ligh command disclosed that the Russians had broadened their assault front to the north by making an advance of more than 16 milea from Soldin toward Stettin, Berlin's Baltic port. The communique showed that Bahn, 22 miles south of Stettin, and the same distance southwest of the fortified rail center of Stargard, had been surrounded, , but declared contact had been reestablished with the garrison by a counter-attack. A similar counter-attack broke a ring around Arnswalde, 40 miles .southeast of Stettin, the communi- que said. Topple ttraiulcnhurg Area In a 30-mile breakthrough, Konev'.'i troopa yesterday toppled the Brandenburg province stronghold of Sommerfeld, 67 milea from the German capital.

The seventh army in northern Alsace rested after a local line-straightening operation which overran Rimling, two miles south of the German Saarland, and two other villages. Poise for Attack as Itoer Itecedes With the Roer river receding rapidly at the edge of the Cologne plain, the Germans increased their artillery and V-weapon fire on the American ninth and first armies. The Germans said both these forces had been strengthened immensely for an imminent offensive toward the Rhine, 20 miles away. A merlcan first army patrols :rossed tho upper Roer in the night to test German defenses. They encountered machincgun fire after reaching the middle of the needing stream and found heavy barbiO wire entanglements and anti-personnel mines on the Ger- mnn side. Three such scouting parties were forced back. Planes were grounded on all except the Alsace-Saarland front until early afternoon. Miss Nii-Enamcl is here. Valley Appliance Co. Five Missing in Crash of B-29 NEW YORK, Feb. 16--W) -Maj. Billy Southwcrth, Jr., son of William H. Southworth, manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, was identified today as one of five j crew members missing after the crash of a Superfortress in Flushing bay late yesterday. The air transport command at La uuardia neiu said Southworth, of Sunbury, Q., was the pilot of the B-29 which overshot the airport in attempting an emergency landing, crashed into the bay and exploded. He was about 25 years old and was a professional baseball player before his enlistment in the army air force in 1941. Also listed as missing were; First Lt. Car] D. Magee, co-pilot, Las Vegas, Nev.; First Lt. Martin L. Cursi, Hulberton, N. Y.; Second Lt. Ralph Lewis Stickle, Butler, N. J.; Staff Sgt. Joseph Yabrodi, New York City. Police and coastguard crews today grappled through the icy waters for their bodies. The B-29 was en route to Florida from Mitchell field, Long Is- .and, about 35 airline miles from La Guardia field. Navy Spokesman Challenges Japs WASHINGTON, Feb. 16--0"P) A. naval spokesman said today "now is the time" for the Japanese fleet to meet the challenge of Admiral Raymond A. Spruance's mighty furco hurling its airpower against the ene/ny's homeland. Voicing confidence that Spru- ince's forces are more than a match for anything the Japanese are capable of bringing out, the spokesman told reporters the navy has a "pretty good idea" where the entire Nipponese fleet "Presumably it was being held for defense of the homeland, and now is the time," he asserted. 'It is going to be interesting to see if the Japanese fleet will come out now or not," Speculation that the operations were preliminary to a landing of much-bombed Iwo Jjma in the volcanos brought only a terse comment that the navy is capable of effecting a landing anywhere.

Asserts Freeze Cuts N.MJars ALBUQUERQUE;"'Feb. ie--UPI --Victor Salazar, state liquor control chief, said today that the state would have bad more than 1,200 liquor establishments If licenses had not been frozen in 1944 by Gov. Dempsey. Released here today, Salazar's report ' was accompanied by a statement from Gov. Dempsey declaring "there are sufficient liquor establishments, in New Mexico to supply public demand . . . More are neither desirable nor necessary." Salazar reported a net decline in the state of 56 liquor outlets during the year ended Feb. 1, of which he said 17 were brought about by Clovis' vote to discontinue sale of liquors.
