Geared WW 2 Indecision Study Reveals Soviet By FRED S. HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - A new U.S. Army study suggests excessive caution and indecision cost the Soviets a chance tc •each the Rhine River—and thus control of most of Germany —in the last months of World War II. Had the Soviets succeeded in reaehihg the Rhine before the Allies crossed that river, they would have been in position to lave menaced France and the low countries, and to have controlled virtually all of Germany instead of settling for a division of control with the Allies. This, in turn, might have altered the whole shape and fate of postwar Europe. These conclusions are implicil in the Army's account of the late stages of the Soviet-German war. That account, titled "Stalingrad to Berlin", was researchec and written by Army historian Earl F. Ziemke. He drew on captured German document; and on Soviet military writings According to this study, the Soviet high command staff in the late fall of 1944 planned whiter offensive that was to liave ended the war in about 45 days. The offensive began Jan 12, 1945, and within two weeks Soviet units were closihg 1 up to the Oder River. But on Feb; 17, 1945, Ziemke wrote, the Soviet staff "suddenly scrapped the whole original plan and ordered Marsha Georgi K, Zhukov and othe? field leaders to clean up the flanks of the advancing Soviel to women of varied interests and educational backgrounds this series is designed to as sist women in making reas oned choices as they make decisions in terms in s family, and society. 8:30 PUBLIC AFFAIRS News in Perspective.

This, in the view of U.S. Army historians, wasted almost six weeks. "By the end of the third week in February the great Soviet 1945 winter offensive had come to a dead halt," the study said. "Caution was in the air." *.*.-*' The Army study noted that the Soviet high command's decision coincided with two small German counterattacks — one aimed at Stargard east of Berlin and the other on the Hron River in Hungary.- It is suggested the counterattacks accomplished nothing for the.Germans militarily, but apparently intensified caution among Soviet staff officers. "The abortive Stargard operation brought the Germans a substantial, unexpected, and unearned dividend of tune that.-.. may have profoundly affected Germany's future," the study said. * * * "In the fit of caution that took hold in mid-February the study said, the Soviet high command "dismantled its operation for an advance to Berlin and beyond into central Germany and committed its main marginal, wholly unspectacular clearing operations on the flanks in Pomerania and Silesia. "No doubt,-observing that the Allies were still west of the line ... the Soviet command concluded it had time enough. "This could have -provided a rational for cleaning out the flanks in anticipation of a deeper thrust into Germany than originally intended and, .meanwhile, letting the' Allies. bleed themselves out. "• But, the: study said, the sequence of events indicates "caii- tion and a consequent inability to decide upon a clean-cut, direct solution to the final strategic problem also weighed heavily. •'-...

'Before we get a lot of letters t el 1 i n g us that a bridge partnership is not for squares, we will modify the law to: "The poorer, the partnership the worse the bidding." . .East and West had no partnership at all, which would become evident if one were told that -West was .the worst player in the bridge club. For once West appears to have bid pretty well. There can be no-criticism ,of his bids of two and three clubs and while his double of three spades may have been overly aggressive, he knew that his opponents would be pushing against h i's part score and he did have four defensive tricks. : " : His partner, East was a'pret- ty good player who had played with West before. : He really should, have bid three clubs over North's two spades. He really should have taken the three spade double out to four clubs and would have done' one or both if he had been playing with a good partner. When North bid two spades, East visualized the rubber as gone far away unless his side should save at five clubs. If he bid five clubs his partner probably would take him too seriously. He decided to lose as cheaply as possible. Then when the bidding developed as it did, East decided that maybe his partner could beat three spades all by himself. If he couldn't the rubber would be over and East could get a new partner. West cashed his three aces and made his king of spades later on. He could have beaten three spades had he cashed his red aces, then underled his ace of clubs, but that would be too much to expect of even a great player. WASHINGTON (AP) - 4 trio of compact radios, designed to. speed 1 servicing and allow helicopters to return rapidly to operational s.tatus, was described here by Fred W. Wilkins. •Wilkins is deputy program manager for the Light Observation. Helicopter Avionics Package of Sylvahia. He told ttm American Helicopter Society'i annual national forum: "For the first time, the Army can predict how long it will take to repair a radio." Built-in automatic monitoring circuits will allow crews to detect within seconds a faulty receiver or transmitter. A portable test set permits isolation and replacement of the faulty module or subassembly in the radio. The three transceivers weigh less than one-third the weight of comparable radios, Wilkins said, and are small enough t» be mounted in the helicopter'* instrument panel.
