Calvin Moody. Blylhcvlllt Army officer who Is having an exciting lime In China, again hns made headlines. How hc shot down the only Zero plane at Yochow, In all-day offensive, Is recounted In a dispatch from an advanced American alrbase, China. The fighter planes aided thc bombers as waves of American planes battered Jaiivrie.sc ll'ooiV fleeing across thc Yangtze River near Icliang and bombed the enemy air headquarters at Yochow, wrecking the depot area. Preliminary reports said one barge on thc Yangtze carrying 13 crated enemy aircraft'' was sunk "id that many enemy troops were tilled as they retreated before ad- 'andiig .Chinese armies. . "Hlckorynul Head" Moody, as he was called when playing football pn (he Blylhevlllc High School Chlckasaw team, was credited In fV-bruary with destroying two Jap planes on the ground at an cnc- iny air base.

General Von Mann- slcln has llic Soiilhern Army Corps, originally the biggest of all the German armies, but now reduced lo an estimated 49 divisions or about TOi.OOf) men. Tlie German Army of thc center, Under Gen. Von Khigc, Is bellced to number something like !I7 ilil.slons or 1,305,000 inch — by far thc largest German troop assembly in Russia. On tilt) north Is Gen.

Drie at Center l.lki-lv Tims, froiri f llic very dls|xisltloii of the German armies, It seems probable that the main Axis effort will cotnc In thc center. Von Kucchler's army group of tlic north can lie expected lo employ a holding operation while Von Klngc attacks on the center somewhere between Smolensk and Kursk. Von Maiinsleln's army group of thc south very probably will launch a sup[)orthig offensive from the Ukraine, seeking ultimately lo link with Voji Kluge's push hi a combined drive to tho south and cast of Moscow. Once again, thc obcclive will be lo destroy Ihc Red Army ralher than lo gain lerrilory. Tlie allack by SOO German plaijcs against Kursk in n single day Is a strong Indication llmt the uusslan .snlienl there will be Ihc Immediate obce.Uve of Ihe Impending German push. Von Khige lias masses of ai metal his disposal In llic Orcl-Uryansk salient and very probably, a good portion of thc German bomber force. ' , Hells lo Shorten Lines Tlie Hussinn.s undoubtedly arc aware of Germany's intentions as indicated by thc smashing Red Army assault In tlic northwest Caucasus, Here, thc Russians arc seeking lo clean up the Caucasus front entirely before llic start ot summer operations farther north In order to shorten their own lines and allow Ihcin to deploy their maximum defensive strength. Once tlie German Caucasus bridgehead is eliminated, thc Russian defense lino will be shortened by some 200 miles. They will need only small holding forces to guard the approaches lo thc Kuban. If the Germans are wrong in assuming that UiC'Alllcs will Inimch no western Invasion' Ihls summer, Ihc Impending battle In Russia Is likely to be a catastrophe for the German Aririy. But if.they arc right, they probably have an even chance of ,-ichtev-1 A .Promotion? Appointment of A.
