HITLER'S CONQUESTS ALLIES OF GERMANY VICHY FRANC! (GERMAN DEMOCRA REPUBLIC) Defeot of Germany in World War I drastically altered tht map of Europe. New nations were formed out of the ruins of the Hohenzollern, Hapsburg and Romanov empires. The German Weimar Republic succumbed to the Nazis in 1933. Under Adolf Hitler, Germany reached the high-water mark of her power during World War IL Germany once again fi a divided nation—in the west, the Federal Republic, with its capital at Bonn; in the east, a Soviet puppet reqime. An island here is the city of Berlin, half fret, half Communist. The world watches tensely the latest Soviet pressures on this city in a land that so often before in history has touched off war. Cargo Missiles to Supply Mobile Army By RAY CROMLET WASHINGTON - (NBA)—Pen- tagon planners are now dreaming of a completely mobile army that would include: Tank divisions that could range a thousand miles In a fast deep 'sweep into enemy territory. They wouldn't slow down for fuel or ammunition. Fuel and ammunition- carrying ballistic cargo missiles would be shot to rendezvous points at 1,500 miles an hour. Pentomic atom - age Infantry, fighting in small semi-isolated units, forced by the speed of fast- moving battle to carry a minimum of food and ammunition. With no front or a rear, and no stable lines of communication, they could still be missile-fed supplies with pin-point accuracy as needed. A 20th-century version of Moseby's famed Civil War raider units, they'd harrass the enemy miles in his "rear." What they couldn't scrounge off the land would be •hot in within minutes at night. Cargo rockets carrying chemicals that would quickly put out rag- Ing forest fires. Cargo Coast Guard missiles carrying aid to victims of a wreck at sea. Red Cross missiles carrying medicine to isolated flood survivors. Delivery .In Future And someday in the far future, there may be the delivery of a division of shock troops to a trouble spot — such as Lebanon — in man-carrying ballistic missiles. So far, however, the U. g. Army has no cargo missiles, nor any on order. But General Dynamics' Convair Division has Just fired successfully an experimental cargo missile of Its own that has stirred up this Pentagon fire- SUPPLYING ISOLATED ADVANCE positions, as shown In this drawing, would be one use of the new, cargo-carrying "Lobber." side strategic thinking. The Convair Lobber is a rocket- powered cargo missile with a range of 5 to 10 miles and a top speed of 1,500 miles an hour. It's quite accurate, probably will land within the length of a football field of where you aim it. Mass • Produced Mass-produced the missile will cost less than $1,000 and be 70 per cent recoverable for use another day. It will carry SO to 150 pounds of cargo. The presen version uses a cheap standard roc ket engine. It's powered by a solic fuel. The cargo missile Itself weight abou 1200 pounds. Broken down launcher and missile can be car ried by three men.

The present Lobber, still being tested, could be made ready for large • scale production within a year — unless someone decides to change it radically. Convair engineers think these cargo rockets can be made fairly cheaply, too, in larger sizes, say with 500-pound or 2,000-pound pay loads. They hope eventually to turn out economical cargo missiles able to go 5,000 miles. 'Santa Glaus 7 Thief Steals Test Papers DANVILLE, Va. (AP) — A thief was Santa Glaus in disguise for some University of Houston stu dents. While dozing at a local train station, Roland Dalomba, English professor at the Texas school had his suitcase stolen. It was quickly recovered but examina tion papers inside were mutilated and illegible. Where does this leave the stu dents? Said the professor: ''I canno very well say any of them failed the exams."

The statistics seem to support their opinions. Hen are toe flftret •• a*. destrlMS UQetf and tajttred and on accidenf• lavolvtof pedestrians for the period Aug.

But Charles J. Murphy, Direc- or of the Traffic Department's Traffic Safety Education, is not celebrating yet. He says: "If the trend continues, it should produce a lasting reduction in the number of pedestrian deaths and njuries, but the figures are still inconclusive. However, they are encouraging and indicate we're on he right track." • Briefly, this Is what the oral- nance calls for: A It floe for any pedestrian crossing against the "DON'T- WALK" signals Installed at 100 intersections. A It fine for any pedestrian crossing against a red light or In toe middle of the block and who thereby Interferes with traffic. A flne (amount at toe discretion of the Judge) for any motorist who falls to yfeld tot right of way to a pedestrian crossing •• • "WALK" signal or green light. For violations of these regulations, police have handed out some 13,000 summons to pedestrians and more than 800 to motorists. Fed- estrian fines may be paid by mall. Murphy praised the police en- orcement of the law as "effective, selective and not oppressive," but pointed out that "what has been very important has been. ,he right of policemen to control pedestrians — a right they didn't have before." A few minutes' observation at he busy shopping and garment district corner of 34th St. and Seventh Ave. proved his point. A woman stepped off the curb against a "Don't Walk" sign. When she was 10 feet out in the street, the patrolman directing raffle shouted just one word, 'Lady!" The woman spun around, Santa Wears a Black Robe; Gives Children PITTSBURGH (AP) — Santa Clam wore a jet black robe Tuesday. Gray-white wisps of hair receded from his forehead. Black, rimmed glasses framed eyes twin- cling at the piping chatter of little voices in the usually quiet and dignified courtroom. That's not the usual description of Santa, but Judge A. L.
