Faf-e of Generations The president, whose speech was broadcast, reminded the senators tting before him that they will soon have an opportunity to make a grV;it decision "which will determine the. fate nf the United States -- find of the world--for generations to come.' He apparently referred to the projected world security organization. A mcrican participation which will be passed on by the sen n to some time in the future. He expressed a hope that congress would deride his journey was "n f r u i t f u l one." "Knr unless you here in the halls or tiny American congress, with the support of the American people, concur in the decisions reached fit Yalta and give them your active "which after full discussion, was unanimously adopted by the other two nations." Recognize Francc.s Role Although France was not represented at the conference, the president said "no one should detract from the recognition there accorded of her role in the future of Europe and the world." He pointed out that France has been invited to accept a zone of control in Germany, to join as a sponsor of the United Nations conference, that she will have a permanent member on the international security council with the other four- major powers, and she will be associated in the joint responsibility over liberated areas. Exchange Information One result, of the agreement to exchange dally Information between the Allied armies under Eisenhower and Stalin, and those in Italy, without the necessity of going through the" chiefs of staff in Washington and London as in the past, he said, was the recent bombing by American and English aircraft "of points which are directly related to the Russian advance on Berlin." The president began his address in a light vein. After asserting he came baclt refreshed and inspirec despite the long journey, he added 'The Roosevelts are not, as you may suspect, averse to travel; we thrive on it!" He said there were two main purposes at the conference, the first to defeat Germany with th' greatest possible speed and th' CAG5NG SCORES 110.000 ship-Builders 'Called Back lo Jobs Today - Fririay - Sr:.'. 2-ACE l-'EATUHES-Z Also Myalory of R i v e r Born Try Ural, lo Rrt II III f r i m THEO V.

It's a Compromise The decision to partition Poland tic described as a compromise under which the Poles will r u ' f n compensation in territory in th. north and west in exchange fo- what they lose cost of the Curzor line. The limits of the wcsterr boumlnry, lie said, will be permanently fixed in the final peace conference. "It is well Iconwn," he continued. "that the poeple east of the Ourzon line are predominately White Russian and Ukrainian. And I he people west of the line are predominately Polish. As far hack as 1910 the representatives of the Allies agreed that the Curzon line represented a fair boundary between the two peoples." Mr. Roosevelt snid he was convinced that tho agreement on Po- 'and. under the circumstances, is "the ini'st hopeful agreement pos- j sil.itc for a free, independent and propsperous Polish state." The president emphasized the I u n i t y of the major Allies and said i t hey Hi'e determined to con t inn th be united an that "the ideal of j lasting world peace will become a reality." Xttlis Leant of "Military Seerets" Referring to some agreements Hatch Flier, Caught in Nip Searchlight, Tells How Bombs Blacked Out Blinker ARMY AIR FORCES, Pacific Ocean Areas, Feb. 10 (Delayed)--How the 7th AAF Liberator, Tarfu caught in the beam of a Jap aearch- ight high over Iwo Jima, dropped bombs which blacked out the light, was told by Sergeant Shelby Amos, Jr., Hatch, New Mexico, assistant engineer-left waist gunner of the oomber. 'It occurred on .the 14th mission, a night 'snooper' raid on Iwo Jima," declared Sgt. Amos. "The target was an airplane dispersal area. As we went on the bomb run the Japs spotted us and turned on six searchlights. "One was plenty accurate. Even though we were flying above 10000 feet, it hung right on our tail. The tail gunner had so much light he could have read a newspaper. "The light was in the target area and directly in the path of the bombs. We were dropping fragmentation bombs. After bombs were away we could see the flashes as the bombs exploded nearer and I rer' to the searchlight. The flashes ' sort of crept up on it. | Suddenly the light went out. And ill wasn't the Japa who turned it I 'ft." ' ' ! The Tarfu still was caught by the five remaining, lights but its ' pilot used evasive action to escape. Sgt. Amos has flown 23 combat missions over Jap bases on Turk, , Chichi Jima, Haha Jima and Iwo j Jima. The latter island was the [ Tartu's target on 20.raids during! which airstrips,' 'airfield installa- j lions and dispersal areas were j blasted in the long neutralization : attack which the 7th AAF is waging against Iwo Jima.

As to the first purpose, he said that is now being carried out in great force. As lo the second, "a tremendous stride was made." No Destruction for Germans The president emphasized once again that unconditional surrender does not mean the destruction or enslavement of the German people. He said Nazi leaders have "deliberately withheld that part of the Yalta declaration from the German press and radio." TJncod titional surender, under the Yalta agreement, he said, means temporary control of Germany by the Big Three and France, the end of Nazism and the Nazi party with all its barbaric laws and institutions, the termination of all militaristic influence in the public, private and cultural life of Germany, and punishment of Nazi war criminals that is "speedy and just--and severe." "Reparations In Rind" He said it also means the complete disarament of Germany in- ·hiding the permanent, dismcm- ·""·wirnt of tho German general staff--along with reparations in kind which Germany will have to make for the damage it has clone. "By compelling reparations in kind--in plants and machinery and rolling stock and raw materials-- ·oparations in the form of money 'hich Germany could never pay," ·e said. He added: "We do not want the lerman people to starve or to be- -ome a burden on the rest of the Community Fund Total Is $6050 With but a few more delayed checks yet to come in--some of them probably already in the mail --the one-day, Feb. 22.
