The fuehrer will (1) commit suicide in the despair of defeat, (2) be eliminated by his own followers, or (3) fall into the hands of the allies who will execute him, unless they inflict the more terrible punishment of life imprisonment. Of course there are other ways he might meet his desserts. He might be killed by bombs or on the MILD DECEMBER FAVORS FARMER All Corn and Soybeans Have Been Harvested Iowa Falls --December weather in the Iowa Falls vicinity was especially favorable for farmers because the temperature was above normal and there was little moisture.

The large animal had thick, brown fur, tipped with gray. The coyote met the truck and immediately turned and ran down the road with Frederick after him, finally catching up to and running over the animal. battle-front. However, we needn't speculate that far. The important thing is that one of the greatest war criminals of all time is walking his last mile. That's where Hitler is headed, but how about other war criminals. The allies have agreed that war-guilt shall be punished, but they haven't said just how or when. This problem has been simmering, and getting hotter, until now the question has arisen of whether the accused should be dealt with summarily as they are made prisoners, or whether their trials should be postponed until after the war. . ! Our soviet allies recently convicted 3 German soldiers and a Russian traitor for atrocities. The quartet was executed in the market place of Kharkov. Now the soviet trade journal "War and the Working Class" has reproved some foreign criticism ot the procedure. Among others, the Yorkshire Post, of Britain, is chided for suggesting that prosecutions of war- guilt be put off until after the war. The Post, by the way, is published by the father-in-law of Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden and long has been credited with reflecting Mr. Eden's views at times. That, of course, doesn't entitle us to conclude that the secretary's opinion is involved in the present incident. The soviet journal also smacked the Manchester Guardian (British) for saying Russians were acting in their own way in their handling of the trials. Having defended the soviet action, the Journal remarks tersely that the Kharkov affair is "only one of the first blows inflicted upon the hideous fascist beast." That's quite understandable when one stops to think of the horrible atrocities inflicted on the unfortunate Russians in the territory overrun by the nazi barbarians. It strikes me that there's no occasion for any conflict of view among the allies orer this question. Even if there were, it would be most indiscreet to air it in public and thereby give the enemy grist for his mill. The Russians are direct actionists--one of the admirable qualities which are winning this war. If they want to punish war-guilt as they go along, that would seem to be their business. The quarrel, if any, over such punishment is between them and the Germans. All other aspects aside, it's possible that a few executions such as were carried out at Kharkov might lessen the nazi terrorism against soviet citizens, or the hangings might cause reprisals. In any event, that's for Moscow to decide. ! The other allies haven't yet held i any war-guilt trials, and there has been no indication thus far that either America or Britain Intends to make a move in this direction until peace comes. However, there's small similarity between the situations of the western allies and Russia as regards German war guilt. The way things look, the Hitlerites have inflicted some 1 of the most awful PASTOR IS DEAD Lundgren, (/P)--The Rev. C. S.
