2 · Friday. Feb. 11. 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE sector where enemy armor was trylar to pierce the British line. They have been thrown in wherever needed, and the weather doesn't affect their efficiency any more than it does the attacking German tanks. But the enemy is making the most of the weather break otherwise -- attacking all points of the beachhead front with varying viciousness. Official announcements as yet give no clear-cut indication of the Germans' success or failure, but leave no doubt of an increase in the battle's intensity. The failure of the bridgehead force to drive farther into the Germans' flank at the early stages of the landings was mainly due to the stubborn resistance of the Germans along the main 5th army front at Cassino. There the Germans had pre- v e n t e d t h e b i g breakthrough which could have led to a junction of the 2 allied forces. Americans, still fighting bitterly in the ruins of Casswo «u the main 5th army front, captured 5 more buildings. Their artillery leveled the lowu prison which had been turned into a nazi fort. but the Germans still .foutht tooth and nail from the underground dunceotu and cellars. C o u n t l e s s tons of bombs smashed down on the Germans at all points ringing the bridgehead and their main operating points about Home as heavy - bombers were diverted from long range targets to join medium and fighter-bombers in furious slaps protecting the American and British troops resisting attempts to drive them into the sea. The bombers added the weight of their terrible explosives to the detsructive blasts arched upon the enemy by allied artillery in '.'time crashes" -- a method of fire control by which hundreds of big guns all place shells upon a single target area in a matter of a minute or so, often erasing the target in a single blast. Both flytag fortresses and liberators joined in Thursday'!: forays--dropping their deadly missiles on enemy troops at 5 key points in the highway network around the beachhead area -- Albano, Cisterna, Velletri, Campo leone and Cecchina. · ' Albano, which was heavily ,. bombed, is within a. mile and a half 'of the Papal summer palace at Castel Gandolfo where the Vatican radio said, Vatican prop erty had been hit. There was no confirmation here of the radio report, however, and allied spdkes- meirsaid allied airmen had strict instructions to avoid damage to the palace. But despite the fury of the air offensive, in which 850 sorties were flown as against 30 by the enemy,: the · Germans . apparently retained the initiatives on the ground and lasted oat in many probing attacks at various points v around the bridgehead slon. the 65th, was identified In their line, making 5 full divisions and a brigade called up to tmash the bridgehead. The German attacks were in :he Carroceto (Aprilia) area, where heavy fighting was still in progress, and west and southwest of Cisterna where . Americans battled grimly to hold them back. The nazis used tanks in these attacks but not in the grand manner. It was evident that their main effort was yet to come, and -.here were indications that the iieavy aerial assault may' have delayed it. ' The new 65th German division at the Anzio front participated in the Sangro river defense in eastern Italy several weeks ago, was sadly mauled by the British 8th army and was taken out of line la be reorganized and refitted at Genoa. Other German units in the Anzio battleline were the Hermann Gocring and 26th armored divisions, the '29th armored grenadiers, the 715th infantry divisions and the Reiehsfuchrer SS brigade. In Cassino where the Americans made progress with the greatest difficulty, the Germans had turned almost every building into a fortress, and each one had to be stormed individually. ' ' The Americans took 5 of-them Thursday after shelling them, crawling into the debris and annihilating the remaining nazis with grenades, machine guns and small arms. . Cassino's jail was one of the strongest of these nests, and it was shaken down by artillery and tank fire. · Besides Albano, Cisterna, Cec- ehina. Velletri and Campoleone, 5 key points on the. highway network I to the beachhead area overlooking the coastal shelf, the allies bombed a road junction and railroad near Monterotondo north of Rome, the road and.railroad junction at Vicovaro northeast of Rome and Palestrina. ana a new divi Marken of Hampton Is Director in Iowa Sheep Growers Association DCS .Moines, (JP) -- The Iowa Sheep and Wool Growers association, at its annual meeting Thursday, chose directors for the coming year.

Six others, including several persons prominent in fashionable Beverly .Hills, \vere,indicted along with Chaplin for an asserted conspiracy to deprive Miss Berry of her constitutional rights following her arrest on a vagrancy charge Jan. 2, 1943, in Beverly Hills. The Mann act charges against Chaplin are not connected with the alleged conspiracy. One count alleges that on Oct. 5, 1942,' he transported Miss Berry, from Xos Angeles to New York City with intent to have her "engage in illicit relations with him and live with the said defendant as his mistress." · The 2nd count is based on Miss Berry's return from New York City to Los Angeles. Chaplin was in seclusion but his attorney, Jerry Giesler, said the comedian would surrender to the V. S. marshal Monday, addinc an appeal that the public withhold judgment 'against the film star "until he has had his day in court." The conspiracy allegations are that Miss Berry's arrest was plotted, that she was refused/access to legal counsel and finally intimidated into leaving California. One indictment lists 22 alleged overt acts. The 6 named with Chaplin are Beverly Hills City Judge Charles Griffin,. who, after Miss Berry pleaded guilty to vagrancy, sentenced her to 90 days in jail, suspended on condition that she leave town; -Ca'pt. W. W. White, Lt. Claude Marple and Matron Jessie Billie Reno, o'f the Beverly Hills police department: Robert Arden, radio commentator \vhose real name is Rudolph Kligler, and. Thomas Wells Durant, former film studio official and a friend of Chaplin. They all are charged with participation in an alleged conspiracy to deprive Miss Berry of Her legal..; rjchts by forcing : her JOAN BERRY with Chaplin at his Beverly Hills borne. . · Chaplin, regarded as one of the wealthiest men in the film industry, is an Englishman and has never been naturalized. For a man who shuns the press, he has .been one o£ the most publicized men in motion pictures. Of his 4 wives, 3 were beautiful actresses: Mildred Harris, Lita Grey, mother of his 2 children, army private Charles, Jr., and Sydney; and Paillette Goddard. All 3 marriages ended in divorce. . His present bride is Oona O'Neill, 18 year old daughter of the playwright. Eocene O'Neill, to whom Chaplin was married last June. 2 weeks after Miss Berry bad sued on charjrcs he was the father of her then unborn child. A U. S. attorney's office at- tache said that Chaplin, if convicted on all 4 indictments on which he is charged, would be liable to a .maximum of 23 years in prison and fines totaling $26,000. Judge Griffin said: "I am absolutely innocent science is clear." My con- Lieutenant Marple declared that in 13 years on the police force "I've never been in any trouble before." Others named declined comment or could not be reached. GETS EXTRA SHOE STAMP Kansas City, OP)---The ration board gladly granted Mrs. Evelyn Oney an extra shoe ration stamp.

Bombers Again Blast at Frankfurt London, (ff) -- American flying fortresses blasted Frankfurt-on- the-Mam with tons of high explosive again Friday, striking the already hard hit southwest German industrial and transport center for the 2nd time in 4 days and the 4th time since Jan. 29. While this assault to flatten Frankfurt Uas In progress, liberators again operated independently at (he forts, slashing at military installations in the Pas- de-Calais area and American marauders In their Sth operation in 11 days struck other targets in the "rocket gun" sector of northern France. · · Friday's operations- kept the unprecedented allied aerial assault going through yet another 24 hour cycle and followed up Thursday's mighty attack's on the German manufacturing city of Brunswick:and the Gilze-Rijen air base in Holland which precipitated furious air fights in which American heavy bombers and lighters were credited officially with downing 84 enemy planes Mustang, lightning and thunderbolt fighters escorted the fortresses to Frankfurt, and other thunderbolts covered the liberators on their run to France. Heavy bombers of the USAAF now have struck continental objectives in 12 of the past 15 days. The terrific assault obviously designed to flatten Frankfurt has been under way since Jan. 29 when a record force of more than 800 heavy bombers hit the city with a daylight record of 1,800 tons of explosives. It was estimated unofficially Friday that more than 3,500 tons of bombs were rained on that ·manufacturing and communications hub in three previous daylight attacks. The rumble of explosions rolled back acros sthe English channel Friday morning as the bombers hit the Pas-de-Calais area. The daylight forays came in the wake of RAF mosquito attacks on western Germany and mine laying in German waters from which all RAF planes returned safely. The mosquitos' raid was their first attack an Berlin since the night of Feb. 6, but they have A. C.

NEW REVISION MADE IN BIBLE Will Be Printed When War Limits Are Lifted Chicago, CU.PJ--The world's best seller, the Bible, has been revised again and the new version will be printed as soon as wartime restrictions on paper and type have been lifted, it was reported Friday The latest revision of the Bible was announced by Dr. Luther A. Weigle, chairman ol a committee of 16 members - representing the International Council on Rtligious Education, which is holding its annual meeting here^ The language of the new edition has been brought back to the clear simplicity o£ .the King Janies version, Weigle said, and it has been cleared of many of the innovations of well-meaning but thoughtless scholars. "In recent years there has been a wave of interest in reading the Bible," he said. "This work has been prepared to meet that demand." "We are confident.that this revision will appeal to the millions of people who read their Bibles all the time. This is not a new translation, but merely a revision of 'American Standard Version' based on the original King James version." Some of the outstanding men in religious education helped prepare the new edition for publishing and the manuscript will be ·HCHOR HQCKING £ SUSS CORPORATION JNVJTK YOU TO "MEET CORLISS ARCHER SATURDAY THE ENTIBC 3 O A S T - T O - NETWOCK delivered to the publisher this fall. it was reported. , t Both the old, and the new testaments shared in the study and re-' vision which took approximately 7 years to complete, he said.
