GIRAUD ISSUES CALL FOR UNITY Declares Defeat of Nazis Beyond Doubt NEW YORK, (/P)-- The Dakar radio said Thursday that General Henri Honore Giraiid, high commissioner for French north and west Africa, declaring the defeat o£ Germany to be beyond doubt, had urged all Frenchmen to unite to liberate our fatherland and avenge the infamous treatment inflicted by the Germans on the French people." He spoke at Dakar where he arrived Jan. 5 to confer with Vice Admiral William A. Glassford, Jr., head of a United States mission there, and with Pierre Boisson governor-general of French west Africa. CBS recorded the broadcast. Back From Solomons as Coconut Casualty f . . W-Ernest M . Sco _ field, Denver marine, returned irom the Solomons as a coconut casualty. His left leg was broken by a coconut dislodged from a tree over his foxhole by a stray Reds May Try to Blockade Kerch Strait By LOUIS F. KEEMLE United Press War Analyst The position of (he Germans in the Caucasus rapidly is becoming desperate as the Russians close in from the north and F' east a n d are n o w threaten- i n g f r o m t h e west. The Russians are reported to be repairing, or h a v e already started, an offensive on the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus. T h e r e p o r t Keemle comes from neutral sources in Stockholm, while the Berlin radio, heard in London, said that fighting already had begun in the Novorossisk-Tuapse region of the coast. The Germans may not be able to extricate themselves from the red army trap and thus face th possibility of disaster. A Russian drive on the Black Sea coast would be a direcl threat to the German line of re- treat. Tacticians have pointed out that the army which is withdrawing from the oil field region could escape across the narrow Kerch Strait into the Crimea, where it probably could hold, bolstered by the German forces already there. Stockholm reports o£ the new offensive say it is a combined land, air and naval operations. The use of the navy suggests that the Russians intend to block the strait, which connects the sea of Azov with the Black sea, and destroy any German force which attempts to escape. By a combination of air and sea power, the Russians should be able to do it. The Black sea fleet is strong and it is intact. Since the fall of Sevastopol it has been able to base at ports on the Caucasus coast. This new Russian threat is combined with an even-more imminent one to the key city of Rostov at (he mouth of the Don. Russian forces advancing southward from the south bend of the Don have reached Bolshayaorlovka, only 75 miles north of the city. · The speed of Gen. N F. Vatutin's southward advance may determine the fate of the German army the north Caucasus. If he can storm Rostov before the Germans can withdraw to that city along the railroad from the oil fields they would be cut oft and in ; hopeless position, without any supply line except by air.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 1943 warfare on "arrogant bureau. cracy," non-essential eovern- ment spending In wartime, and "promiscuous granting of blank checks and blanket powers." * * * Opening day speeches by republicans and southern democrats were aimed at administration o[ war agencies through executive orders by the president. Representative Eugene E. Cox, D., Ga., called for reasserlion of the rights and prerogatives of congress in this session. In this he echoed the expressed sentiment of House Republican Leader Joseph W. Martin, Jr., o£ Massachusetts and the implied feeling of House Speaker Sam Rayburn, The unsettled committee situation in the house, where the republicans are demanding a greater representation because of their increased strength, was shown in the failure to elect sitting mem- 17 bers of top committees at the first day's session. * * * It was understood that the democrats arc amenable to granting the republicans a fair share of representation on such committees as ways and means, military and naval affairs, rules and foreign affairs, but they want to know "who goes where." In the senate, democrats held a caucus to determine the ·dispo- sition of more than a dozen important committee assignments they have controlled since the new deal came into power. Republican senators will hold their committee caucus Friday. Because of their increased representation in the senate--10 more seats than in the last congress-they are demanding about 18 more posts on important committees.
