MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FRIDAY, JANUARY 15. 13*3 tslicd 58 blockhouses, cleared a sheet and captured prisoners. Linked with fresh soviet advances ^on the lower Don, in the westward thrust toward the great German base at Rostov, Russian headquarters announced that the Red armies slogging through wet, . heavy snows had now driven back the nazi invaders more than 125 miles and pushed w i t h i n -15 miles of liie Kalmzck steppes. In a single day's fighting, official dispatches said, the Hus- sions marked up a 26-mile advance Jo recapture the town of Stonikovskoyc on the fringes of the Kalmyck region, while other soviet columns expanded their wedge along the Kostov-Batu railroad. One spearhead had already captured a town 20 miles west of the rail junction at Mineralnyc Vody, the red army command said. * # # The German radio, conceding small territorial gains by the Russians, found a curious satisfaction in the situation with the comment that it would have been worse if Hitler's invasion armies had kept on winning'. ". , . the. soviet retreat into the vast eastern expanses of the soviet union would have confronted the German armies with almost insoluble supply problems." Russian military quarters remained silent on Stockholm reports that Marshal Semeon Timo- shenko was leading a new offensive to break the 17 months old German siege of Leningrad, the old czarist capital in the north or that a Russian drive was developing in the Voronezh sector on the upper Don. On the Tunisian front, in Nortl Afnica, the Germans asserted lha 800 French troops were killed nnc . 15 tanks destroyed when the French launched an attack toward Pont Du Fahs, 35 miles southwes 1 of Tunis. ! "Farther to the south, fighting for the entrance to mountains \vai going on Friday morning," thi Berlin radio said. The nazi claim of victory wa: unconfirmed by allied' quarters The French said Thursday the; had driven axis troops from tw strategic heights below Pont Di Fahs and captured another axi. position in the area. .

SAW 5 WATERLOO BROTHERS DIE Sailor Writes Mother of Heroic Iowa Boys WATERLOO, (U.PJ--Mrs. Thorn- is F. Sullivan had still hoped that r five navy sons missing in action would be lound. Although the navy told her hree days ago that the boys had seen missing since' the cruiser Juneau was sunk in the south Pacific, she thought they might come lome some day. They've always stuck together, she said, and if one vas saved they'd all be saved. Then came a letter with a postmark indicating it might brine her news of her sons. It brought ber news, but it dashed her hopes. "George was a special friend of mine,' 1 one of their shipmates wrote. "All hope is. gone for your joys being found alive. George got off the ship as his battle station was on a depth charger, but he died on a life ratt I was on. "The other four boys went down with the ship and were killed immediately, so they did not suffer. It was a sad and pathetic sight to see George looking for his broth- era, but all was to no avail . . . "I don't know whether this sort of a letter helps or hurts you, but it's the truth. I am reporting to a new cruiser at the present time. I know you will carry on in the fine navy spirit and I truly hope your boys' lives did not go to no avail, will try and avenge them for y ou." The Sullivan boys--Gemgt, 29; Francis, 26; Joseph. 23; Madison, 22, and Albert, 20--joined the navy themselves to avenge the death of a pat. They enlisted a year ago after the; learned that" Bill Ball of Fredericksbnre, Iowa, had been killed in the Japanese attack on Feart Harbor. . After reading the letter, Mrs. Sullivan, 49, reiterated she would proceed with plans, made before she learned of her sons' death, to christen a navy tug at Portland, Ore., next month. She will make the t r i p with her husband, a railroad conductor, and her daughter, Gcnevieve." 25. "1 will see my noys again when I christen the boat," Mrs. Sullivan said. "I know the boys would want me TO do it for them.

LDRIENT, SUB BASE, RAIDED Heavy Attack Made on French City by RAF LONDON, (U.R)--Hoyal air force bombers struck Lorlent, important German submarine base on the French Atlantic coast,- Thursday night in the first heavy raid of "943, the air ministry said Friday. Two planes were reported miss- ng. The raid was made at a time vhen the submarine menace held he front pages of the British iress as Germany's greatest threat n the war. * * ¥ In the past, heavy- raids on Lorient may have coincided with intelligence reports'' that submarine pens were filled, or in an effort by the British to keep the u-boats away from an important allied convoy, bat the target Thursday night was believed to have been Lorient itself as \vell as nearby objectives. * * * Air circles in London stressed the fact that the bomber command has made plain its intentions to neutralize such submar- ne bases and said the consequent heavy damage and loss of life in the French town was regrettable but inevitable. These same sources pointed out the Lorient attack was proof that the allies were ruthless in theii determination to deal with the u-boat menace. The Germans recently broadcast that their submarine bases on the French Atlantic coast were bombproof, with the pens coverec with reinforced concrete, but the penetrating powers and blast effects of the RAF's 8,000 and 4.000 pounders--which might have beet used in Thursday night's raid-have been known to crumble tw or more entire blocks of building: at Cologne. Thus it was conceivable that the pens were so damaged in the raid that the u-boats would be nnable to leave until the debris was cleared.

Whether increased production of new farm equipment will be authorized is now being studied and a decision will be announced soon. Chairman Donald M. Nelson said. Production of repair parts in 1943 at 167 per cent of 1940 production was authorized. Previously, production of parts this year had been limited to 137 per cent of 1940 production. Another order partly lifted the ban on new electrical connections to permit short extensions of existing rural distribution lines to operate such farm .equipment as water pumps, milk machines, milk coolers, incubators, poultry brooders nnd feed grinders. rBIDAV EVENING 6:00 Dinner in Habana 6:15 News ot the World 0:30 News 6:13 H.
