16 Tuesday, Feb. 15, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MAY PREVIEW GOP PLATFORM Faced With Convention Fight Over Policy , By JACK BELL Washington, (/p)_The G. O. P , faced with a probable convention battle over foreign policy, may preview Its presiSential campaign platform at a meeting of the republican postwar advisory council before delegates meet in Chicago on June 25 and nominate the ticket. Although National Chairman Harrison E. Spanzler has made no move to convene the council since its Alackinac island conference in September, Seu. Taft (It-Ohio) suggested the group ought to meet at least a week in advance to complete a report for submission to the convention's resolutions committee. Sen. V a n d e n b e r g (R-Mich.) said he probably would ask a foreign policy subcommittee of the council to meet and "take a last look at international developments" before it reports finally Other members are Sen. Austin (R-Vt.), Gov. Dwight H. Green of Illinois, Gov, Edward Martin of Pennsylvania, Rep. Bolton (R- Ohio) and Hep. Eaton (R-N. J ) Vandenberg told a reporter that so far he sees no need of altering the Macfcinac foreign policy statement; which pledged "responsible participation by the United States in postwar co-operative organization among sovereign nations to prevent military aggression and to attain permanent peace with organized justice in a free world." "J «' as "ever better satisfied ·with the declaration than I am at this minute," Vandenberg said "I nave yet lo see any other pa'rty remotely approach it in a clear statement of policy." However, Sen. Ball (R-Minn.) said he, for one, was not satisfied to stand on the Mackinac declaration and intends to work toward a more definite declaration in the party platform. "Of course," Ball said, "everybody is in favor of international collaboration but the party ought to be more specific about the course it plans to follow. There is nmv no argument about the broad objectives, but the people want lo ·Know how we are going to *et there." " MACKENZIE SAVES TIRES Fort Wayne, Ind., (U.R)--There's gold in them thar tires. Or so thinks Arthur Moore of Pierceton, who works In a Fort Wayne war plant. Moore was driving home from work one day and discovered that his car was on fire. Immediately lie got out, jacked up the automobile and removed all four tires Jn order to save them. The tires still are as good as gold. Moore's car was destroyed by the blaze.

Phone 377 Face New Withdrawals in Russia By DEIVITT MACKENZIE Associated Press War Analyst One of liie several pressing rea sons why Hitler is risking his shii to win a sensational victory at th Anzio- Netturn bridgehead be low Rome^an he has create a very seriou situation indee ·for the allies-is to distract th j attention of. hi i people and wa v e r i n g allie from his ow dire straits o the R u s s i a n front. As the signs now read we can not be far off from a general with drawal of the whole vast naz front. This was some 1,200 mile long in its more prosperous days but the red armies have driven i so full of salients that it now to lals over 2,000 serpentine miles-an utiwieldly and highly vulner able battle line. The wonder is-and this is a U-ibute to German generalship--that nazis haven' been stampeded long before thi« The present 3 great Russian of fensives against this line-- nortl center and south--are acting a mightv levers that are detachin the Hitlerites from strategic an chors without which the fron continue to hold. The northert two-thirds of it will have to pul back at least to positions runnin- from the vicinity of Riga, Latvia southward through Brest Litovslc in pre-war Poland, to the Carpa thians. Meanwhile Marshal vori Maim stein's forces on the extremt southern wiug, which have been clinging so stubbornly lo the Dnieper bend death-trap, are in (he astonishing position of havini been swung around until they are facing north by northeast 'ant P r oj e c t dangerously eastwarc from the rest of tho-fine. This has been brought about by the ret drive from Kiev westward into Poland. \ Thus Mannstein's Dnieper bend troops, have their backs toward' the Bessarabian border, a n d whatever forces he is able to save from annihilation wil have to retreat to the Dniester river, which forms this border, unless there's a sharp change in the present position. That's the crisis which Hitler has been trying to avoid--being driven up against this Bes- sarabian gateway to the, Balkans He's terrified that such a retreat w i l l precipitate an upheaval among his Balkan satellites. There is one peculiar development which might work to Hitler's advantage and enable him to delay his general withdrawal a bit. This is the phenomenal arrival of spring already in parts of the Russian front -- something which, according to the experts hasn't happened before in generations. As a. result of the warm weather, the dread mud has made its appearance to hamper military operations. Only time will (ell whether this peculiar weather means a lone, ivet spring which would impede the Russians, or whether it presages an edually early summer, which would enable the eager red troops to get ahead with their job: In any event, fate has written that the Hitlerites will have to pull back towards the fatherland to new positions in the not distant future. Chiusi, central Italian town non- reported to be the German army communication center, is under- laid with a labyrinth of passages dating from pro-Roman days. 3 County Supts.

NORTH IOWA MOTOR C °CCX - » ·iwut, OO . . : Ptene»r omJ Poc.^ofctr m Autcmoffy, A new class in meteorology is : ust being started at the armory under the direction of the civil air patrol squadron with H. H. Boyce, local high school instructor, and representatives of the civil aeronautics administration in charge, Stanley H. MacPeak, commander of the local squadron, announced Friday. Classes averaging 50 members, about 18 of them women, are held Tuesday and Thursday evenings each week from 7:30 to 10 o'clock. Attendance is voluntary. Subjects offered in "basic types of work include motor maintenance, international code, infantry drill, navigation and./meteorotogy. Among those taking: advantage of the instruction and training provided are about 20 young; men, 17 year olds, aivailinjf call for cadet training. At all meetings all the rules of military courtesy are observed thus accustoming the men and women who will later serve elsewhere to the forms ana customs observed by the army. These courses are also basic for 1VAC training and the women arc entitled to wear the WAC uniform with the exception of the buttons, if they want to. The CAP is a national organization with headquarters in New York. Each state has a wing of the CAP and the wings are broken into groups. Iowa has 5 such groups, each of which in turn is broken into from 3 to 5 squadrons. The Mason City squadron includes , about 70 persons. 80 per cent of whom arc from Mason City. Since the CAP is an auxiliary i of Ihe army air corps, their offi- ' cers rate a salute the same as army officers of their rank. All work done in the CAP is voluntary and with the exception of those on 'active duty" the members buy iheir own uniforms and defray :hcir own expenses. As lo the uniforms, the CAP members are the only civilians al- owed lo wear the regulation uniform of the army. They are distinguished by the bright red shoulder straps and blue sleeve patch til the red propeller centering I white triangle and with the! vhite "U. S.'' below. By active' luty is meant-those serving on he coastal patrol and forest patrol r flying the courier service. On the local-scene the activities if the CAP extend to postimr ruards at various points during blackouts, such as at (he airport and its approaches, their own headquarters anil other points vhich come Under their jurisdic- ion. Perhaps their longest period of I ontmuous service recently includ- d Ihc hours of guard d u t y at the cene of the crash of the army roinbtr near Mason City some months ago. Less than half an our after the crash, members verc on the scene and accepted a ull shave of responsibility of uarriing the wreckage and the eavch for the widely strewn bits f wreckage and equipment. Kven after the army invcstiga- ors, medical officers and military olice arrived the CAP was asked o continue its work by assisting he regular army men. The mem- ers were on continuous duty from hortly after the crash until the vreckagc had been loaded and removed from the scene. The CAP was created by the j ffice of civilian defense on Dec. ] . 1941, for the purpose of binding i Aether all the-privatc pilots and ' sizable ground and administrative force'for the protection of the country's airports. The staff on the Mason City squadron is composed of Mason City men. They are Stanley H. MacPeak, commander; Merlyn R. Parks, executive officer; Merrill Parks, adjutant; Robert Hubbard training officer; Sylvan Huselin operations officer; Dale Hayes personnel officer; Henrv Thomas-' supply officer: and Hubert Bush' flight officer, teaching navigation AH have 2nd lieutenants' commissions in the civil air patrol. As to the future of the organization, said Commdr. MacPeak, it is an organization for private flying people. In the unit now are a dozen people, including 2 women taking private flying lessons Enlistments in the organization are never closed to those who would sincerely like to'find some way to contribufe to the defense and war effort, he 'stated. In the Russian w i n t e r a wounded soldier, if lying in the open, will die of frost in 10 minutes to half an hour. Y COMMITTEES ARE APPOINTED Centennial Being Observed, Says Klath Fitly Y. M. C.
