The Yanks, led by Lt. Cols. John Smith of Dallas,-Texas, and Robert Booth of Eugene, Ore., took off at 1 a. m., leaving-behind all vehicles, including armor, whose noise would top their hand. . From Trentelhof they crept ,2 miles northward through foot- deep snow past 3 German defense lines and-cut the main east-west road at the junction near Doncols, near U'iltz, before the Germans could rub the sleep from their eyes. · Back at the regional command post Lt. Col. Donald Gorton, of Tecuriiseh, Nebr., described the surprise caused by the Yahks^ VFor a while all they had to do was to shake, the Germans awake and .say, 'come along with me,' " h e said.' _· ' ' . ' ' . ' · -Ma]'. Orwin Talbott, of McCamey, Texas, said, a ground fog* prevented a quarter moon from revealing the Yanks creeping toward Doncols. · Because silence was so all-important the Yanks held gunfire to a minimum, using bayonets when it was necessary. One German prisoner told Capt. Herbert Oehmichen, of Keokuk, Iowa, that "we figured an attack might come at 4 a. m. or 5 a. m. and were trying to get a little sleep." ' Early Friday morning a German tank and truck column moving southeastward on the road near Doncols ran head on into the Tanks heading northwest. Both parties backed off. The Yanks called for 10 tanks and 8 tank destroyers, which arrived quickly. At least 5 German tanks and several halftracks were destroyed and numerous Germans in the column were killed. Maj. Richard Boers, Lcaon, 111., said the prisoners, many of whom were 11 year olds, included S from the luftwaffe who were completely bewildered by the turn of events. They -had arrived in the area and did not have 1 a chance to be orientated. The prisoners were generally healthy, although dirty and unshaven. · Three GI's forming a wire team took 53 prisoners, who thought the building where they were housed was surrounded. Three Germans walked into an aid station and gave up. - Two security guards, Pvts. Otto Sand, of Detroit, Mich., and James Abernathy, of Otumwa, Iowa, matched 73 Germans 3 miles from the front to a prisoner cage. ' ' · - ·Asked if perhaps.there should have been more guards for that many prisoners, Sand replied: "Naw--they were glad to be out of it." If Too Do Not Breeivfe Paper Before 6:30 p. m.
