He was born near Dixon, Aug. 4, 1869, and was educated in the schools of Scott county, moving to Cedar county at the age of 19.

He farmed four miles southwest of Bennett until retiring in 1927. Surviving are two brothers, Ed we can to bring about the turn of the tide." "We must be no less fanatical in annihilating all those who are trying to oppose this command," he said. "We are already witnessing today in large areas of the east and in many parts of the west what our whole people might have to go through. "It is quite clear to everybody what we have to do namely, to offer resistance and to hit our enemies until in the end they grow tired and break up. There will be no repetition of 1918.

The speeches, broadcast by Berlin radio, pointed to a swift purge of German defeatists and the further scrapping of the rules of war at the front, possibly including the use of poison gas. Hitler himself hinted at the new blood purge. In a proclamation to the German army commemorating the tenth anniversary of conscription in Germany, he called upon all Germans to "do with dogged determination everything LADIES' BIRTH STONE RINGS, 10.25 and Up (plus tax) Solid gold mountings; many attractive styles.

The Stockholm newspaper Dag-ens Nyheter reported that travelers from Berlin said Hitler had set up headquarters near Berlin and was working with a big staff of engineers and industrial experts on what were believed the final preparations for the battle of the capital. Reichstag Called? From Basel, Switzerland, came word of insistent rumors in German border districts that Hitler had called a meeting of the reich-stag, possibly for some dramatic announcement.

Goebbels' threat to scrap the rules of war came in a speech given at Goerlitz last Thursday in the course of a visit to the Silesian front southeast of Berlin. "Up to now," he said, "we wen prepared to conduct the war ac-i cording to rules of extreme fairness. We never wished to conduct it otherwise. "But what we have experienced in our eastern provinces has taught us otherwise. If today the Wehr-macht and German people raise cries for revenge, then this is the cry of a tortured nation which demands an outlet.

"It's no mere chance that our soldiers, when on this or that sector of the eastern front go over to the offensive, they no longer know any mercy." Goebbels said German divisions in "the next weeks and months" MONTGOMERY WARD and Crepe and Prints $5.98 to 40 Dial 3-2743 (Continued from Page One) warplanes blasted Germany in more than a dozen places. British Mosquitos kept the offensive rolling through the night by hitting Berlin with two-ton blockbusters for the 20th night in a row. They also attacked various other communications targets in western Germany. More than 1,200 American heavy bombers continued the crushing blows against the reich Sunday, switching the main attack from railyards to the submarine yards at Hamburg, Bremen and Kiel. Several small oil refineries at Hamburg, Harburg and Bremen also were attacked.

One U. S. bomber was lost in the attacks of the Ruhr. Beat Off Luftwaffe Meanwhile, American fighter planes stopped two more attempts by the Luftwaffe to destroy the vital Remagen bridge. Three Nazi planes were shot down near there over the week-end.

None got in bombing range of the bridge.

He said there were now 65 German towns damaged to much the same extent as Cologne. will launch a great offensive. He quoted Hitler as saying: "I firmly believe that when we throw in our new offensive armies we shall beat our enemies." Close students of German propaganda long have believed that Germany will attempt one last grandiose reprisal before the final curtain falls on Nazism.

Neutral sources have reported elaborate German preparations for the use of poison gas or some devastating secret weapon. The possibility of a German paratroop landing on England also was not discounted. Coal Operators Draft Answer to Each of Lewis' 18 Demands WASHINGTON, D. (AP) Bituminous operators called off the scheduled conference with the United Mine Workers today to frame an answer to each one of John L. Lewis' 18 demands.

Counter proposals were discussed over the week-end by the operators, and the negotiating committee will devote today to wording their replies to the demands made on them at the start of contract negotiations March 1. The negotiating committees representing operators and miners went over the Lewis proposals last week. Ezra Van Horn, conference chairman and head of the operators' group, said the negotiations would resume tomorrow. "The operators' negotiating committee is in session giving consideration to the various proposals of the United Mine Workers America," was the brief announcement by Van Horn. SUPREME TRIBUNAL REFUSES TO RULE ON SEIZURE OF WARD'S (Continued from Page One) president of non-compliance with its orders is merely advisory.

"Lack of any final answer by the supreme court to the problems involved," Gypsum told the high tribunal, "has created an intense feeling of unrest and fear on the part of the public that acts of the government without even the semblance of legislative sanction will be permitted to go unchecked, and that the private citizen is to be denied access to the courts for a determination of his belief that his constitutional rights are being destroyed." Gypsum lost in the District of Columbia appeals court in a suit seeking to enjoin WLB from taking any action to compel the firm at its Warren (Ohio) war materials plant to comply with an order requiring maintenance of union membership. The company also asked in vain for a judgment defining its rights and legal relations with respect to the order. bonds pi -it ROEDERER TRANSFER STORAGE CO. 1466 W. 4th Dial 3-3631 OF Misses' and Women's (Picture on Page 20) While today's report of representing total contributions thus far in the 1945 war fund drive of the Scott county' chapter of the American Red Cross, is somewhat short of the figure of $91,973.05 realized on a corresponding day a year ago, officials of the campaign are not in the least disheartened and they point with pride to a contribution of $183, included in the total, representing a 100 per cent donation from the officers and men of the Navy V-12 unit at St.

Ambrose college. "This is the spirit which makes for success in a drive of this kind," Charles J. Johnson, campaign chairman, pointed out. "And the splendid contribution of these men who are in service, will act as a spur to civilians working for firms anxious tCN attain a 100 per cent record." Mr Johnson stated further that it was hoped to complete the drive in the city and the county by March 15, and accordingly solicitors in the various divisions of the campaign, are urged to complete their work and to make reports before that date. Contributions turned in to date by the five divisions are as follows: Advance gifts (complete) Business 12,219.75 Industrial 23,220.25 Residential 26,492.50 Rural 6,106.00 Louis Meier, Sr.

Duggleby, 51, formerly of Davenport, died about Jan. 15 as a prisoner of the Japanese, presumably in the Philippines, according to information received by members of his family here. The word was relayed to his Mrs Dorothy Duggleby, Grass Valley, who happened to be in this country with their son, Michael, when danger developed in the Philippines. She received a telegram from Manila, probably from a niece, Mrs Anne Worthington, who like Mr Duggleby, had been an internee at Santo Tomas. News of his death confirmed the worst fears of the family after a letter from Mrs Worthington revealed he had been removed from Santo Tomas before it was taken by American forces.

That he had been ill was indicated in reference to the fact that while he was held apart from other internees for special questioning about the first of the year, "needed medicines" had been gotten to him. Official of Camp It was believed he had been removed for questioning because of outside contacts he might have established because as financial agent for the internees, he had been allowed to go to Manila occasionally to buy supplies. Mr Duggleby also was on the camp executive committee, and chairman of the advisory board. Leaving Davenport in 1930, he became vice president and general manager of the Benguet Mining Co. and the Balatoc Mining both operating on gold deposits.

Members of his family include three sisters, the Misses Irene and Emlyn Duggleby, 1818 Belle avenue, and Mrs George Hain, 2114 Elm street, and two brothers, Archie W. Duggleby, R. R. No. 3, and Pfc.

Norman G. Duggleby, now in the Fort Logan, hospital for treatment of arthritis after six months' service in Italy. Born in Australia May 26, 1893, he also lived in New Zealand for a few years, and then in England from 1897 to 1903 before the family moved to Davenport. He was a graduate of the Colorado School of Mines, and had been a member of Mt. Ida Presbyterian church.

His stepmother, Mrs Michael Duggleby, lives in Davenport, but his father died in 1940. YANKEES STEADILY WIDEN BRIDGEHEAD (Continued from Page One) most section of the Rhine bridgehead.

U. S.

Dist. Judge Campbell E. Beaumont ordered her to "make as full restitution as possible" of the $850 she was alleged to have received fraudulently from the government. She pleaded guilty to receiving $560 from John L. Bradley, whom she was declared to have married at South Mills, N.

Probably taking advantage of the regrouping process on the Russian side, however, the Germans claimed a number of local successes. They declared they had smashed back over the Warthe river into the new part of Kues-trin, 40 miles east of Berlin. The Germans say a furious battle has been raging for seven days with Kuestrin as its focal point.

From Stettin the Germans also reported armored counter-attacks which knocked out 28 Soviet tanks and regained a bridgehead on the east side of the Dievenow river, a link between Stettin bay and the sea. Berlin denied that the Russians had been able to gain a foothold in Altdamm, the Stettin suburb across the Oder from the Baltic port. Close In on Baltic Ports Moscow announced last night that Rokossovsky had thrust a spearhead to Koelln, only eight miles from the bay of Danzig at a point which threatened to cut between Danzig and Gdynia. Koelln is 11 miles northwest of Danzig and eight miles southwest of Gdynia. Gdynia, pre-war Polish port opening into Danzig bay 12 miles northwest of Danzig, was threatened with encirclement as other Soviet troops striking east through Pomerania approached Neustadt (Wejherowo), Nazi stronghold north of Gdynia, a late Soviet war bulletin reported.

Capture of Gdynia and Danzig: would leave the Nazis with only Pillau and Koenigs-berg, on the opposite side of Danzig- bay, as escape ports for the scores of thousands of German troops trapped in eastern Pomerania, the Danzig free city area and East Prussia. These two ports were under terrific pressure today from the Third White Russian army, which has slashed through East Prussia from the "east and thrown a siege arc around the East Prussian capital.
