16 Thursday, Jan, IS, 1*44 MASON crrr GLOBE-GAZETTE COAST DEFENSE UNITS REDUCED Move Augments Forces on Offensive Overseas Washington, (P)~Military establishments in the coastal areas of the United States are being reduced in order to augment offensive forces overseas, and the army's eastern- and central defense commands .are to be consolidated in a further move to tree .military forces-for combat assign/ ients. · · ' ' · - . . Secretary of War Stimson made · these announcements Thursday on ' behalf of both war and navy de- 'partments. In connection with army-navy .coastal defense reduction, Stimson said "a considerable number" Of units, retained In the coastal areas for training, would he avall- ble for coastal defense in case of .emergency. ' The .announcement said: "Now that the battlefronts have ·moved further-from our. borders ·and we have taken the offensive, 'it would be a waste"of manpower to maintain .the same number of troops in this country in static de-Jense positions^" · - ' It was noted that the number of ·installations along the coasts might be reduced, in addition to transfer .of personnel from those areas, i The consolidation of the 2 defense commands will be effective .Saturday, and Lt. Gen.. George Grunert, commander" of the east- ;ern defense command, will head the consolidated command with . headquarters in New York City. Lt. Gen. Lloyd K. Frederdall, commanding general, of the centra] defense command and the 2nd army, will retain his 2nd army command with headquarters at Memphis, Tenn.

"The staff of the present eastern defense command will operate the consolidated command, releasing those who have been on doty in the central defense command for other duties." There was no mention of the 1st army, which heretofore has been commanded by the same general who headed the eastern defense command, suggesting the possibility that large numbers of troops which have been stationed along the eastern seaboard may be destined for combat operations overseas.

Sack Yank Flyers jive Germans Major Defeat ByJDE WITT MACKENZIE Associated Press War Analyst America's air-fleet administered _ major defeat, physical and moral, to the Hitlerites in Tuesday's giant battle over Germany. We have carried our attack to the v e r y heart of nazi defensive strength -- a g r a n d achievement.We have done great damage to 3 of the chief aircraft plants of t h e h a r d - ·. pressed reich, hereby inflicting a grievous round on enemy aircraft produc- ion at the crucial moment of the /ar when the nazis are girding bemselves for invasion of western Europe. Our airmen shot down some undred fighter planes. But only le Germans know how many undreds of aircraft were de- troyed in the plants at Osehers- eben, Halbertsadt and Brunswick, Only the Germans can say how much their warplane production las .been, cut "down by. this attack, ut it undoubtedly is large. We did a good Job. I hear a lot f folk trying to estimate the aloe of .that daring operation by ie.. number of men and aircraft we lost Certainly a loss of 595 men and 64 warplanes, including 9 huge bombers, is a tough blow. But yon Just can't figure the thing n that basis. When our air command considers such an attack the cardinal uestion to be asked is: Are the bjectives worth the risk? If that an be answered with a'"yes," then the project is justifiable. It 'ould remain justifiable even if le attack failed of its purpose hrough no fault of our forces. What, say you, would it cost in ves, time and money to battie ur way across western Europe ?ith a land army to those 3 German cities and destroy the aircraft plants? The answer is that very tune we carry out a suc- essful air assault we are doing he work of a great ground force. We shall have a chance to keck on that before long, when we put our army of invasion ashore in western Europe. And it's well for ns to get oar minds ad- usted to the Idea that we are go- to see some very heavy allied osses. Two points strike me as calling or our special thought in con- ectioa with this air battle. The first is that, while the Germans are on the down-grade, they still etain great defensive power, 'hey no longer are able to carry ut the vast bombing attacks which they staged early in the var, because they have been orced to devote their energies to tuilding the defensive fighter ilane. But their fighter force has :ained in proportion. The 2nd point develops natur- illy as a corollary to the first. Be- ause of this nazi air strength, and because of the increasingly icavy losses we shall have as we prepare for and inaugurate the invasion, we are in great need or more and still more intensification of warplane production. That 1 vhere the home front gets into the fight. Do yon know that one of those heavy bombers has more than half million parts, not including maybe 7M,tM rivets? It used to ake about 2M.OM man hours to build one of these big fellows though this time has been dated. Last, but far from least, the ailed air assault on Germany from the west is playing its part in the continuing successes of the re armies. The Anglo-American ai navies are destroying Germany'; war industries and supplies, am they are forcing the nazis to de fend themselves in the air with power which they urgently n on the Russian front.

Letter Tells of oy to Pay Back Hitler New York, (U.PJ--Ernest ;LUien- tein had a heart full of gratitude or the country which had given im and his family haven from azi terrorism. When his army in- uetion notice finally arrived vith its chance to repay what he elt was a debt to'that country there was not a happier person n the United States,"-his mother old the.national refugee.service Pvt. Lilienstein was killed in ction in Italy last October. His ast letter to his mother reiteratec is gratitude at, his opportunity to pay back Hitler." Cairo, (1P)~-A. typhus epidemic s now raging in Naples SO times as extensive as it was in October nd Has become a potential menace to the allied war effort, al- hough the disease has not spread o the troops, Brig; Gen. Leon A. 'ox said Thursday, Fox declared "Naples is now eriously threatened and the menace can be expected to extend o southern Italy." The problem was inherited from he Germans upon allied occupation in October and since has in- Teased greatly due to the influx of thousands of refugees .from northern Italy and also because of nazi destruction of water and ;as systems, Fox explained. Several hundred thousand units if vaccine have been flown to Naples and delousing of civilians s baing carried on at the rate oE 30,000 a day. Fox said it was loped to increase the delousing to 50,000 daily. He added that the American vaccine production program is adequate to protect allied forces. ;e Peterson of Albert Lea Asks to Be Retired for Health St. Paul, Minn., (U.R)--Norman E. Peterson, Albert Lea, Minn., judge of the 10th Judicial district tor the past 22 years, has asked retirement because of failing health, Gov. Edward J. Thye announced Thursday. Thye said he had addressed a letter to Ludvi* Gulllckson, Preston, Minn., directing a plebiscite of lawyers in their district for nominees to fill the place. By his request, Judge Peterson will yield the bench to a successor on Jan. 31. The judge's letter of resignation was accompanied by a statement signed by Dr. W. L. Palmer and Dr. L. C. Barr. The 64 year old jurist has been ill for the past 6 months, they said. - The 10th district embraces the counties of Freeborn, Mower and Fillmore, with a population of nearly 100,000. At the time of Peterson's appointment, by Gov. J. A. O. Preus th'e first week in January, 1923, it alio included Houston county, · · Judge Peterson noted many conditions giving rise to an abnormal amount of litigation during the period in which. he has .served; inflation after the first World war. the depression, prohibition, foreclosures, strikes, riots and bank failures. .
