TUESDAY, JANUARY IB, 1943 20 Rumanian divisions had been liquidated as casualties and pris- pners.) * * * The army moving: southwest from Voronezh in the sixth and newest of the red offensives in the south ivas reported within Its miles of Kharkov after (he capture of Afanasievka, 20 miles north of the railway connecting Svoboda and Kupyausk. As the line ol advance was straightened in this sector, Russian forces were reported to be encountering "excessively stubborn resistance" from German and Hungarian troops in some cases. As the squeeze on the trapped force of 50,000 Germans at Stalingrad tightened an increasing number of prisoners was taken, indicating the nazis were taking heed of the Russian ultimatum to surrender or die. The plight o£ the Germans in ihis area'was heightened by the crossing o£ the Manych river and canal, announced Monday. This endangered the supply 'base and air field at Salsk from which material has been flown in to the surrounded divisions. The Russians already had reported the capture of the last usable landing Jield in the vicinity of the trap.

Other red army troops driving down the railway to Rostov, in a thrust aimed at cutting off the ·escape corridor" of perhaps 500 000 axis troops in southern Russia, were officially reported to have captured the Kamensk railway station and fought their way into the city. Kamensk is only 85 miles north of Rostov. East of Rostov, on the lower Don river, the Russians were meeting stiff resistance but below the Don the red army's big guns were reported within shelling range of nazi-held Salsk. Russian troops driving back north through the Caucasus toward Rostov were thrusting along the Rostov-Baku rail line within 70 miles of Armavir, key junction east of the German-held Maikop oil fields.

Flynn. who has yet to testify in his defense, insists he will be able to prove that both of his youthful accusers are t a l k i n g through their hats. Upon the decision of a nine-woman-three-man jury hangs not only his future as one of Hollywood's highest paii picture stars, but the possibility of hi. spending the next 50 years in San Quentin prison.
