S Press ; . With Allied Invasion Forces South of Rome, Feb. 2. -- (J.R--The Germans have converted the quiet Italian town of Cisterna into an armed fortress, with every house a sandbagged gun emplacement or carefully camouglaged sniper's nest/ The Americans are 2 miles outside of this German center defen. sive position at the junction of thi Appian way and the Naples-For mia railway. To the naked eye, the town looks peaceful, even sleepy But thfoush the powerful artil lery 'scope the armaments am erman officers at mess, with Ital- n-farmhands serving them. There was blood everywhere nd the officers and farmhands ay dead together on the. floor. In le farmyard I saw' a dead pea- ocfc, with blood on its beautiful eathers. August. .

Bristow--The Henry Dralle, Jr., family received word from Mrs. Dralle. who is at Excelsior Springs, Mo., that she cannot return home for another month as she was compelled to undergo an operation. Every month in 1943, the Hawaiian USD spent 350,000. German troops clearly are visible Despite the camouflage I san nipers on roofs, machine gun nesl n parircaded balconies, and saiid agged windows. Even without ih lass I saw the Clash of their gun irinp at us. I saw allied shells too--crashing nto the tiny town like a cata- DUlted load of bricks. Lt. Nicholas 'ricarico, Brooklyn, N. Y., through vhose 'scope I was looking, called ttention to the towers and steeples hat gave German observers excellent vantage points. "They look like candles on a birthday cake," hte said. Tricarico broke off talking to Dark instructions into his battery phone. Allied artillery picked up a German supply truck moving along a road in town, and blasted it to kingdom come. Tricarico scanned the town for other objectives. I saw German tanks skipping from one bit of cover to another, never showing themselves for more than a second--a tribute to the efficiency of allied anti-tank fire. I was surprised to see that despite the battering Cisterna has taken since allied troops landed on this beachhead, it still looked quite intact. The fighting on the road to Cisterna has "been a field to field, farmhouse to farmhouse affair. Most of-the farm buildings looked as though a hurricane had hil them. I visited one- where a bias! of American artillery had caught Christmas Atniosphere or Men "Somewhere n Italy" Described McGregor, JP) -- Capt. Willian: Weir of McGregor helped provide Christmas atmosphere for his men "somewhere in Italy." In a recent letter to friends hen he described the service. It wa: conducted under a ceiling of stars and at an altar protected by can vass shelters. Candle holders wer sturdy brass shell cases, song were sung just above a murmur and music was by a soldier play ing on a saw. The songs included "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Joy To th World," "O Little Town of Beth lehem." -and "Silent Night, Hoi Night."

DISMISS SCHOOL BUS ACTION Farmers Asked District to Supply Service Toledo, (/P) -- I n the D y s a r t choof bus transportation case in vhich 15 Tama county farmers asked an order of. mandamus di- ·ecting the Dysart consolidated school district to lurnish transportation to and from scftool for .heir children, Judge B. F. Thomas Wednesday sustained a motion of the school to dismiss the suit. Judge Thomas granted t h e plaintiffs 30 days in which to file one, while the Dysart district is consolidated and the law governing school bus transportation is different. an amended petition. The action resulted when the office of 'defense transportation ordered all school districts, supplying student transportation, to reduce mileage traveled by school " r buses. It followed another Tama county court decision in which Judge B. O. Tankersley found in favor of John Flowers, another Tama county farmer, who brought similar action against the Tama school district. However, the Tama district is an independen' Patton, Farmers Union Head, Says National Service Act Untimely Denver, (U.R)--James G. Patton president of the National Farmers Union and an administration supported in- most domestic affairs said Thursday that the nationa service act suggested by Presiden Roosevelt is untimely and un necessary. Such a "draft" is unnecessary "at a time when big business is left with enormous war profits, prices are rising and the cost of- food law is un-enacted." "Until people are given an opportunity to contribute to the war effort, and voluntary methods fail, we cannot support a service act which discriminates against the workinug people of the nation," he H A \/ A I Thursday, Feb. 3, m* lo .
