Saturday heim, 3 miles to the south, t compressing the' German foothol in that area. Patch's forces also struck for ward half a mile on a 3 mile fron and reduced the Bitche bulge b 2 miles from its high water mark. Ten American divisions and a undisclosed number of Britis units were crushing- into the Ger man salient with increasing spec after 5 days of slow, uphill battl through the sUTfest of the enemy' northern defenses. At the same time, field dis patches said German resistanc was wilting on the southern flank above Bastogne, indicating ths the waist of the enemy pocket ha been narrowed to less than 1 miles by the converging alliec forces. Late dispatches revealed tha the Germans were battling hard to expand 2 sizable bridgeheads across the Rhine above and below Strasbourg in a bold counterblow that threatened to pinch off the entire corner of Alsace won b; the V. S. 7th and French firs armies at heavy cost. French sources in Paris said civilians were fleeing the Strasbourg area to escape another German occupation, but there was no confirmation at allied headquarters where the enemy drives were minimized as "small-scale" operations. On the Ardennes front, the American 2nd and 3rd armored divisions, backed up by the veteran 82nd airborne, drove powerfu wedges across the St. Vith-La Boche highway at 3 and possibly 4 points 4 and cleared the nazis from a Wooded ridge commanding almost the entire 35-mile lengtl of the road. At last reports, the sleepless half-frozen doughboys were pouring across the highway in the wake of their armored spearheads through spotty enemy resistance. United Press War Correspondent Ronald Clark reported that the once-formidable German. defense! coverinc the hlchway appeared to have disintegrated into a series of isolated strongpotnts, many of them already by-passed by the American vanguards to be moppec up by the supporting infantry. The break-through across the road severed the last escape anc supply road for at least 3 German armored divisions locked in battle with British troops at the western end of the salient. There was ho indication, however, that the Germans were trying to break off the action and withdraw eastward even if that were possible at this stage. There was a possibility, however, that the panzer spearheads were being sacrificed by MarshaJ Karl von Rundstedt to cover the retirement of his main forces into a central defensive position wesl of the Bastogne-Hoffalize-Liege lighway. British Armored Forces Clear Athens Peninsula Southeast of .Capital Athens, U.R)--British armored forces cleared the entire Athens peninsula^southeast o£ the capita Monday and battled to reduce an ELAS strong point in a mountain defile 25 miles to the. north west. Tanks and infantry made rapid progress through Eleusis, Mago ula, Mandra, Aspropirgos a n c Ruos west and northwest of Athens, but came to a temporary halv in the Carikaza defile under fire from ELAS 75-miUimeter guns Jnoriars and rifles in the heights. Seven ELAS troops were killed in the advance northwest f r o m Athens, and 14 others were can tured. Other British armored column;, ranged from southern /Athens to the tip of the Athens peninsula, 25 air miles to the southeast without opposition. The advances put the British well across the line over which Lt. Gen. Ronald Scobie previously had demanded rebellious ELAS units withdraw as a prelude to any armistice, but Scobie said Sunday that his peace offer no longer held tood under the original terms. ELAS' seizure of British and Greek civilians as hostages and its refusal to permit Hed Cross representatives to visit prison camps nade it imperative that any truce nclude reference to prisoners, he EETUENS DISTRIBUTED Des Moines, (ff)--E. H. Birm- ngham, federal collector of internal revenue for Iowa, announced Saturday that federal income tax eturns for the calendar year 1944 lave been distributed. He urged armers to file either their declar- ition or final return before Jan. 5- MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE NAZIS 15 MILES FROMBUDAPEST IN FIERCE DRIVE Germans Spending Men Tanks Recklessly to ' Reach Holdout Forces L o n d o n , U.R)--The red army siege lines west and northwest of Budapest buckled dangerously Monday under a pile-drive German attack that carried vanguards of a nazi relief army within 15 miles of the beleaguered city. and armor recklessly in an llth bow bid to rescue the remnants of some 80,000 axis troops holding out inside Budapest, the Germane sluiced their way almost Into artillery range of the capital in the face of terrific casualties and a rrowint threat to their left flank north ol the Danube. One nazi column recaptured the Danube crossing town of Eszter- gom, 19 miles northwest of Budapest and almost half-way back from Komarno, where the counter-offensive began last Monday. At the same time, a second armored, spearhead farther to the south.carried a 6 day, 22 mile advance' to the outskirts of Bicske, 15 miles west of the capital, and began storming t h ' a t Russian stronghold. Late dispatches said furious fighting was in progress at Bicske and south of Esztergom, where outnumbered soviet armored and artillery forces ground the nazi advances to a temporary h a l t Sunday night. Bed army dive bombers a n d artillery took * terrific toll of the panxer spearheads, knocking out 88 tanks Saturday and 69 more Sunday, rnnnlor the enemy's losses to more than 300 tanks since the start of the week-old counter - offensive. In addition, more than 1,100 nazis were killed Sunday in the fighting west of the capita). Meanwhile, a grave threat to the Germans' left flank was developing in the north, where powerful units of. the 2nd Ukrainian army broke out of their narrow Bridgehead on the west bank of the Hron river and advanced 12 miles to take Madar, 11 miles northeast of Komarno. Capture of Komarno would lop off 1 of the main supply and communications centers of 'the nazi relief army moving on Budapest. Inside Budapest itself, the bat- Je had developed into a grim race by red army infantrymen, tanks and artillery to kill or capture the the,rest-of the axis garrison before the. Tiart rescu*' force could break through their fsiege ring. Ward Case Is Argued in Federal Court Chicago. (IP)--flie 2 year old Montgomery Ward and company- war labor board dispute, which twice resulted in government seizure of Ward properties, went into federal court Monday to determine whether the president has legal power to enforce WLB rulings by seizure. Arguments by government and company attorneys will be made before Judge Philip L. Sullivan. The government is seeking a declaratory judgement upholding the seizure and Is asking an injunction io restrain company officials from interfering with war department operation of 16 properties of the huge mail order firm seized here and in 6 other cities Dec. 28 under presidential order. Ward's attorneys, In answer to he government suit, declared the army seizure to be unconstitutional, termed the WLB orders to the :ompany unlawful and accused he government of illegal acts in ts operation ol the seized properties. Both the government and Ward's have declared the case, the result of which may affect the authority of the federal wartime machinery for settlement of labor dis- lutes, wii be carried to the United States supreme court regardless f which side wins the first round. Attorney General Francis Bid- He said he would appeal the case f the government lost and Sewell Avery, board, chairman of Ward's said the company would appeal he decision if the government won. President Roosevelt-maintained n his seizure order that Ward's on-compliance of membership hreatened wartime stabilization. Ward's has contended that it is not a war industry. Avery declared that WLB directives are menforceable and only advisory, le has refused to grant main- enance ot membership. He has aid, howevtr. that in wage increases the only objection'to WLB ecommendations has been in in- tances when the board demanded ncreased rates above those ol vard's competitors. James F. Byrnes, war mobiliza- ion director, declared in an affi- avit filed in federal court, that vard's conduct "if allowed to ontinue, will seriously interfere vith the successful prosecution of he war." War Strikes County Hnntington, Ind., OJ.R) -- Three Huntington county soldiers who vent overseas together and were n 'the same major engagement, ut not the same unit, were war asuallies on the same day. Vounded were Pvt. Hugh Barber nd Pvt. Harold Becker, while vt. Maurice Barnes was placed n the missing-in-actiou list. MacKenzie Eisenhower Faced Trials With Calm By Deivrrr MACKENZIE Associated Press War Analyst The hind-sight calamity howlers who have been feverishly seeking a victim for public sacrifice, because of ^he German sur- p r i s e break- t h r o u g h i n France, h a v e their answer-- tnd now maybe they can get a h e a d w i t h their personal o n t r ibutions towards w i n - ning the war. P r e s i d e n t Roosevelt says 'General E i s - enhower h a s faced this period of trial with admirable calm and resolution and with steadily increasing success." and "he has my complete confidence." Simultaneously we learn from allied supreme headquarters not only that there won't be any sacking of allied generals but that General Ike himself thinks his jommanders have done a remarkable job in stemming the drive. All this fits into Monday's picture of the battle of the bulge. While the situation still is dangerous, and there's bloody fighting ahead, the allies are doing well. Field Marshal Montgomery sums the situation up by saying that while the. battle is "far. from over," the Hitlerites "have been halted, then sealed off, and we are now in the process ot writing '.hem off." . That sounds like the Monty who, back in the days of his African campaign against Bommel, told me the only way to win wars Is to :rnsh the enemy troops on the battle-field. He possesses a lot of Cromwellian realism. Since this is Monday wash-day, t's a good time to examine another erroneous impression about he war in western Europe. The jusiness-like way in. which the nazis cracked our line has given rise to the idea that they actual- s' are stronger than they were be- fpre D-day. A lot of folk have umped to the conclusion that the 3ermans have fooled us about heir resources. It must be · admitted that the situation presents a paradox which s calculated to support the thought that the reich is far stronger than we suspected. Actually, however, t is weaker today in materiel and manpower than it was last June What has happened isn't that nazidom suddenly had discovered an Aladdin's source of war-wealth, r has fooled us with secret stores, but that it has concentrated its weaning strength. · : - ·We shouldn't forget that at the time of the allied invasion of Normandy the Germans were holding thousands of miles of "front" in western Europe." Their communications were vastly extended, call- ng for great consumption of gasoline and oil to move supplies. Mountains of material of all sorts were needed for the widespread fronts. Once the nazis had retreated across France to their Siegfried defenses, however, their active lighting front was reduced to some 500 miles. We don't need a paper and pencil to figure out that their striking power was multiplied overrfight by this concentration, without any actual increase in resources. On D-day the Germans had about 70 divisions in western Eu- ·ope. Despite colossal casualties iiey still had about the same number of divisions when Marshal von Hundstedt cracked our line on Dec. 16. This created the impression that they had a big reservoir of reserves. The fact is that much of the new strength is far below the old in quality. It's made up in part of very young- and old men, together with many physically unfit. They ire. used for gun fodder while the irst-Une troops are saved for emergencies. · So one could go on, but the jrand total gives the same picture. Germany is on the down-grade but has achieved a fresh lease bv concentrating her western strength, and she may do the same thing in he east. Still, we've known all along that this would happen, so here's no reason for pessimistic miscalculations now. Neither is here any reason to underestimate he German ability to make a fierce last-ditch stand. MONDAY, JANUARY 8, 1945 ire Sweeps Through 3 Pittsburgh Buildings; "ireman Hurt in Fall Pittsburgh, (£)--A 6-alarm fire .wept 3 downtown buildings Monlay, causing heavy damage, snaring traffic and routing sleepers rom nearby rooming houses. The only casualty. Fireman Edvard Jones, escaped with an inured elbow when he fell 3 stories n a snowpile. Swept by the flames were the -story Pittsburgh Office Furni- ure and Equipment company and adjoining 3 story buildings, one if them unoccupied. Fire Chief Villiam Davis said the fire apparently started from an'explo- ion of undetermined origin in the -acant building. The fire chief estimated the amage at "upwards of $200,000." More than 150 firemen from 15 ompanies fought the flames. Oil Producer Ans«n, Texas, (U.R)--Texas' oil ndustry has 73 pipe lines !n op- rntion with a total length ot 34.23 miles, and requiring 9,000,000 ai-rels of crude oil to fill the lines. The state's 101.421 producing oil veils are located in 1,012 fields in 40 ot Texas' 254 counties. One Man's Opinion Continued From Pace I extra expense. Let's lake a'look at just what's involved and just what may be expected when teaching is thus made more attractive. I've already mentioned the added appeal of teaching. This means filling the teacher ranks with our ablest and most personable young people rather than being stuck with those who can't make the grade elsewhere and turn to teaching as a stop-gap. *T«HJS is important--but it isn't ·,^! h 1 wb , ole stor y b ? anv means. With teaching established as · a profession, with a fair professional reward, it is possible to raise the standards of teacher- training. Better material to start with and better training for that material. That's the story Iowa today is one of the few stales in the United States where a boy or girl fresh out of high school can step out--utterly untrained--and become a teacher. Oh yes, it would be a rural school. But who would hold that our rural children aren't-Just as much entitled to a competent teacher as our town children? , f TP to this time we've spent most V of our time visiting about the teacher. That's as it should be I think, for everything in o'ur school system is incidental and secondary to classroom instruction. But there are other' aspects of our school system that call for our most earnest consideration One of these is that no Iowa youngster should be penalized educationally because of where he lives or because of economic conditions over which he has no control. In theory, at least, we here in Iowa have always been committed to the principle that there should be equality of educational opportunity. In the actual working out of things, however, we haven't measured up to that ideal. We aren't measuring up to It right now. .In this connection I'm thinking of the rural lad or lass who is 1 of the 6 or 7 pupils attending a school presided over by an untrained teacher just out of high school. That youngster just isn't getting a square deal. ' I'm thinking also of the youngsters unfortunate enough to live 'JCL communities which either can't or won't support an adequate school system, where taxable property or the mill levy is insufficient to do the job. Here again, it's the youngsters who pay the price. . ' '. CCHOOLS with less than a " dozen pupils are an educational luxury in which' Iowa should not-indulge itself." H'-the teacher is a poor one. and poorly paid, the children suffer. If she's a good teacher, she ought to be sharing her talents with a larger number of pupils. In either case the per-capita cost is excessively high. The solution lies, in consolidating districts and providing bus transportation under a statewide administration. The overall cost would probably be somewhat less than now and the results would be infinitely Improved. In those districts where schools suffer from mal-nutrition, there should be a state authority cloaked with both the power and the finances to step in and take up the cudgel for the children who have been made the victims of a circumstance for which they are not responsible. Scores of Iowa communities have had the advantage of kindergartens for many years. Thousands of other communities, however, have not. Here again the principle of educational opportunity for all to which Iowa is committed should be brought into practice. If kindergartens are good for some, they should be made available to all. T HAVEN'T in all of this meant ·*· to leave the impression that I think Iowa's public school system is all wrong. That just isn't true. In fairness. I think it can ae said thst our schools are better than we have deserved. That goes for our teachers too. In spite 3f the fact that too often they've been treated like unwanted stepchildren,, they've maintained- a surprisingly high standard of excellence. The principal trouble with our school system is that we've been operating on a pattern laid down for us almost a hundred years ago. at about the time Iowa was admitted to the onion. As a maf- :cr of fact, a study of our schools uade by the famous Horace Mann n 1856 revealed some of the very shortcomings alluded to in this commentary. For one thing, he saw the dan- jer inherent in a multitude o£ rural schools. He doubted that it would be possible down through the years to provide sufficiently veil-trained teachers for such a vast number of schools. He was right. Well, what's to be done? '·pHE answer to that question ··· isn't hard to find. It's con- amed in the report of the special Iowa school code commission made a / f e w months ago to the governor of our state. That report and its recommendations will be efore the general assembly about to convene in Des Moines. In it will be found not only the educational shortcomings cited In this commentary but many others. And, more important, for every shortcoming cited, a specific and lausible solution is suggested. These take the form of specific ills--20 in all--all ready for the cgislatnrc's most earnest consideration. "Then the whole matter is the responsibility of our representa- :ivcs and senators," you say. No, . wouldn't agree to that. Hather I'd say it's the responsibility of all who believe that the children of Iowa are entitled to better schools than they have had in the past, or than they have now. TT should be understood, of ·*· course, that the better school system embraced by this report of the code commission is going to entail a somewhat larger total bill for secondary education than we've had to pay up to now. The minimum school teacher salary of $65 a month by code will be stepped up to $80. Providing retirement pay comparable with federal social security benefits enjoyed by millions of workers In other fields can't be iccompllshed without cost. Extending our pupil transportation system far beyond its present scope and financing it on a statewide basis doubtless will involve some measure of extra expense. Through better administration at both the local and the state level and through intelligent consolidation of districts (by local referendum, it should be added) certain savings will be effected. But in the overall picture, the aggregate financial outlay for our public schools is going to be somewhat increased if- Iowa accepts and makes operative the recommendations of this special school code commission. It is true--and importantly true -that the 'extra ' cost will be largely, perhaps entirely, drawn from state funds. But still it will have to be money^bur money. TT can be assumed, I' think, that * our law-makers as individual citizens favor pulling Iowa out of her educational rut. But in their legislative capacity, they are more than individual citizens They are OUR representatives--'. YOUH representatives. Such tests as nave been made by use of polls have revealed a marked preponderance of public sentiment favorable to improving our schools even though it cost some money. This, however, is not enough. * O U R representative a n d YOUR senator are entitled to know how YOU feel about the "f ««·· H*y don't you, right now, let them know? SUIT MACHINE DRIVE Council Bluffs, (^P)--Slot- machine owners* in Ppttawattamie county have been ordered to get their machines "ou t at once," Sheriff Jack Tyler said Saturday. The order was part of a general policy statement issued by the sheriff in which he also asserted that it was "the responsibility of the mayor and council ot each town" to keep slot machines out.

(/P)_Field Marshal Sir Sernard L. Montgomery Sunday declared allied' teamwork and especially the inherent "courage and good-fighting quality" of American troops had halted the German drive into Belgium. The battle Is -far from over," « asserted, but the Germans have been halted, then sealed off, and we are now in the process of writing- them off," with the initiative in allied hands. At his first press conference In months, the colorful Briton com- nanding 4 armies north of the jerman bulge told how Field Harshal Karl von Rundstedt's thrust developed, and how he moved to meet it. Time and again he stressed that above all it was the fighting abiJ- ty of American doughboys and heir "tenacity in battle that makes a great soldier" that has really saved the situation by the stands at St. Vith, Bastogne, and south of Monschau. He singled out Z American armored divisions, the 2nd and 71h, and 2 U. S. airborne divisions; the IZnd and 101st, and the 106th infantry as doing- a. great job. He also landed the U. S. 7th corps, and praised General Eisenhower's eadership. "What was von Hundstedt try- ng to achieve? I don't know," Hontgomery said in an hour-long alk. "The only guide we have is lis order of the day which told lis soldiers they must go all out on this las' big effort. "On the map you see his gains, that will not win the war. He is slowly but surely to lose it all. He must have scraped together every reserve he could lay his hands on for his job. "One must admit that he has dealt a sharp blow and he has sent us reeling back, but we recovered and he has been unable to gain any great advantage. He has therefore failed in his strategic purpose, unless the prize is smaller than his men were told."
