Another soviet drive below cap- 'tured Krakow has battered to the Makow district, less than 40 miles from Jablunka pass, a natural 'gateway to the reich at the northeastern corner" of the old Moravian frontier of Czeeho-Slovakia, ·the German war bulletin added. I Heavy lighting raged on in East ·Prussia, where Russians were '.within 18 miles of completely sealing off the province. A Mos- 'cow dispatch said Marshal Konstantin Rokossovsky's men w e r e ;only 10 miles from the last rail- ·way from Germany to the Junk- 'ers homeland. . I Russian guns ' were shelling Jeities on the western side of the JOder, and Marshal Ivan Konev's troops menaced Breslau, capital 'or lower (northern) Silesia, from points 10 to 12 miles away. Berlin said soviet attacks east of Breslau were driven off. The capital city of 650,000 population is astride the river. ; Berlin admitted tbe Russians bad reached the Oder at C'jpelo Xnd at Cosel 25 miles f a r t h e r south where much of the richest Jiart of Industrial Silesia already was outflanked. ' One German broadcast..' described fighting "near Gosel," which is on the western bank of the Oder, but did not indicate whether any Russians had crossed the river barrier ttyere. From the east bank southeast of Breslau, Konev's guns were firing virtually point blank at such cities as Ohlau and Brieg, a lew miles to the west." ! Writing from Moscow, AP Correspondent Eddy .Gilmore said there were indications of sufficient ice on the Oder to support infantrymen but not tanks or other vehicles. : "Nothing has been said officially about ice," Gtlmore said, "but the Germans have been claiming ihe Danube is frozen well south of the Oder area, indicating that if the Danube is frozen enough for foot crossings the Oder certainly most be." · · The Moscow radio confidently forecast an early crossing, declaring "the volkssturm divisions will be swept aside like 9-pins." ; A German broadcast beamed overseas said Konev's tanks had broken into the outskirt of Qp- peln, a city of 44,000 on the east bank of the Oder 51 miles southeast of Breslau, and that .street fighting was raging in Gleiwitz, an industrial town of 111,000 in the center of the Upper Silesian mining region. · (A British broadcast heard by ?JBC said the Germans had announced the loss of Gleiwitz, 2nd In size only to Breslan in Silesia. The mining center, only a few miles from the Polish border, was bypassed in Konev's first thrusts into Silesia.) , ' /Berlin also declared that in Latvia the Russians had begun a new attack on a broad front southeast of Tjepaja (IJbau) against what remains of the German."

' -' Dispatches relayed t h r o u g h Moscow from Marshal Gregory K. Zhukov's front said his 1st White Russian army now has- encountered larger groups of enemy infantry but was steadily plowine ahead toward Foznan, last big western Polish city 137 miles from Berlin. German broadcasts Tuesday said Russian troops already had reached the area of this Important marker on the road to Berlin. ·To the north in East Prussia, 2 other powerful Russian armies were driving toward 2 other major objectives--to cut off that homeland of the militant Junkers from the rest of Germany and to capture its capital, Konigsberg. A Moscow dispatch said Marshal Konstantin K. Hokossovsky, driving northward, had advanced to within 18 miles of the Baltic port of Elbing. His tanks were driving from 2 directions--along'a highway and railway from Mohrungen and along the Oberlandcschen canal in the Saalfeld area.

Cherniakhovsky, hurling his 3rd -White Russian army in from the east and northeast, was said (o be closing in on Konigsberg from 18 to 20 miles away. Winding up a summary of the Russian victories, a M o s c o w broadcast declared: "It is clear by now that the German armies in the east have been smashed to pieces. Veteran divisions are scattered. Several battle- groups are cut off and caught in cauldrons far in the soviet rear, where they, are facing inevitable disaster." The Berlin radio declared that "new divisions are springing to life deep inside Germany" and that as a result "new defense positions are beginning to take shape before which the Russian assaults are coming to a halt" But Moscow advices gave no hint of any Russian slow down. Massing of Konev's army 37i£ miles of the Oder river southeast of Breslan was announced Tuesday night by Premier Marshal Stalin in the last of 1 orders of the day. Despite the many Russian victories Berlin could boast of one success. Moscow disclosed the loss of Szekesfehervar, 30 miles southwest .of. Budapest, to counter-attacking German forces, still trying to reach a dwindling garrison in the Hungarian capital. To test the functioning of aircraft equipment under all conceivable variations of y eather, an air- conditioned chamber has been built in which temperatures can be jumped from 76 degrees below zero to 150 F. above and altitudes, up to 60,000 feet can be simulated by pressures. make a stand termination to a g a i n s t t h e Russians along the Oder river, just inside the eastern frontier of t h e reich, the life of the European w a r will r u n o u t like the s a n d from a broken hour-glass. .There's nothing, of course, which can save MacKENZIE the Hitlerites from final disaster. That's certain. However, despite the terrific weight of the red assault, they may be able to dodge fate a bit longer by holding on the Oder and may force the fighting to the summer. . · . . The nazi high command is reported to have met last Saturday and decided to defend the; Oder line with all possible -strength. There's no doubt this : represents the real purpose of-Uhe 'enemy, and we must expect hinijtp aftriete' to it to the limits^ of7his;aibility. : '; Whether the Germans can make a stand on the Oder .depends largely on 2 factors: !)' The condition in which their forces arrive in these frontier defenses from their headlong retreat, and (2) the ability of the' Russians to maintain the momentum of the greatest offensive known to history. - It is conceivable that the Germans left the front only thinly manned and pulled back their main forces to fixed defenses inside the reich for a final stand. Where such- a stand might be made responsible military authorities in London are unwilling to guess. Some observers figured a few days ago that Hitler woulc throw in his reserves along a line running roughly from Danzig south through Poznan and Breslau. The continued onrush "of the soviet armies, however, suggests that the stand--if there is to be one--will be farther west. Recent Moscow dispatches have predicted that critical battles would be fought between the German border and the Oder river. The red army.already is on the upper reaches of the Oder south ol Breslan and is threatening Poznan a communications center whose fall would open the road to Germany on a direct route lo Berlin. Military observers here see little chance of the Germans being able to prevent' the Russians from cutting off East Prussia, but feel the nazis probably are counting on YANKS GO HUNTING IN LUXEMBOURG--Pfc. Clinton Calvert (left), of Bayard, Nebr., and Cpl. Roy Swisher of Washington, D. C., return from a hunting trip in the woods of Luxembourg with their bag of 1 deer and 2 rabbits. They are members of the 4th signal company of the 4th infantry division. he weather and the red army's need to pause and regroup to keep t away from the lower Oder until early summer. The ground along the river usually is turned to mud by thaws ate in March and : seldom is firm gain until late in May. In considering the first factor ve must remember this: The indications are that the Germans, although _. retreating under pres- ure, are pulling back in accordance with plans of long standing. They have suffered some heavy osses in men and materiel but nothing catastrophic has been re- Jorted. It's possible that they may ie able to man their frontier defenses with close to a million and half troops. The Russians on their part are up against big problems of logis- ics. Their communications across he winter plains of Poland al- ·eady are becoming extended, and he task of moving troops and supplies is increasing daily. Also the fierce pace which the rei armies are maintaining might com- el a pause for a breather at the German frontier if there's heavy :erman opposition, although the stamina of the Knssians and their ability t' solve difficulties of communication-have/been amazing. Moscow annbriced that the red 'orces .-Iready have broken into Silesia along a front of close to 10 miles .on the Oder southeast of he great. city of Breslau. This eing;- so, the_ Germans soon will iegin to^show^resistarice if they're ibie' to' make' a"." stand. They may lot /attempt tiy make a heavy defense,-of lower Silesia, since thai sector' isn't"-vital militarily, bul they must defend "Breslau and the country behind it. The great Silesian Industrial area, so Important to nazi war production, In itself presents a Formidable defensive lone. This lector represents the rlrht flank of the Oder line. A Russian breakthrough there would put the nazis in a critical position. The Russians are heading for Berlin, as a military spokesman in Moscow -^ys, to "c:arry out the death sentence on.nazi Germany.' That may he a bloody road, bu once the red forces have reache( Frankfurt-on-the-Oder, some 5: miles southeast of Berlin, thi route to the capital will be open. Total Casualties Nearly 100,000 a Month, Surgeon General Says San Francisco, (U.PJ-^Indicatint that the t o t a l number of men wounded in combat theaters has reached nearly 100,000 a month Maj. Gen. Norman T. Kirk, sur geon general of "the U. S. army announced Wednesday that an earlier plan to p l a c e wpunde evacuated to this country in hos pitals near- their homes has. been abandoned. Kirk said there was little chanc that the casualty evacuation rat of 30,000 to 32,000 a month would decrease until fighting ceases. Here on an inspection tour o army hospitals, Kirk said at press conference that only 30 tc 40 per cent of the total number of wounded were returned to th United States. The others, he de dared, are treated at theater hos pitals and are returned to their units after they are fit for further combat. Raise Value of Margarine to 3 Points Washington, (IP)--The red point ost of margarine is going up from to 3 points a pound, beginning Sunday, and previously point-free at pork cuts will require a point pound. Otherwise, the office of price administration announced Wednes- lay, red point values will remain inchahged in February, and there vill be no changes in present blue toint values for processed foods. The agency said the 3-point valne for margarine--one point bove lard, shortening, and salad nd cooking oils, recently returned rationing--is intended to continue its availability for ' bread preads and, in effect, discourage ts use for cooking. 'Plate and jowl bacon, pork fat lacks and.clear plates, jowls, jowl utts'or squares, and regular plates are the fat pork items which will equire a point a pound. Points are being restored lor hese pork items, OP A said, be- ause wholesale cuts from which hey are made are also used in the production of lard, now back on he ration list. . Butter at 24 points a pound tops he unchanged, red point list. Supplies of meats to be avail- bla to civilians in the 5-week Feb. nary ration period will be f mailer ban in January on an average weekly basis. It was estimated. Supplies o£ beef, veal, lamb and mutton, and pork all will be smaller on an average weekly basis. Six more red stamps will be- :ome valid 'Jan. 28, and 5 more )lue stamps Feb; 3. Since the ' February . rationing period will last 5 weeks instead if four (Jan. 28-March 3), 6 red samps Instead of the usual 5 are being validated. Red stamps that will be good beginning Jan. 28 for rationed meats and fats, each worth 10 points, are Y5, 25, A2, B2, C2 and D2.

These troubles have become major allied ·worries. 'They are lugh on the list of political problems facing President Roosevelt, Prim* Minister Churchill and Premier Statin. · . Joseph cJ Grew, acting secretary of state, in, 2 statements issued Tuesday called on rival factions in China and Yugoslavia to reach agreements. China, however, was reminded of the United States' willingness to help Generalissimo Chiang Kai- Shek's government reach a settlement with communists in the north. Grew said this governmen "has not participated" in Yugoslav discussions for a unified administration Repetition of the "gocd offices' offer to China, "when requested by the Chinese," carried the force of an insistent appeal to the cen tral government and the commu nists to move ahead in their nego tiations. It was learned that neither fac tion has as yet asked United States diplomatic aid. Grew -sale the department had no confirma tion of reports of an agreemen between the 2 Chinese groups. Failure of Chiang and the com munists to get together was one of the main issues in the recen diplomatic flurry over Chines politics. It is estimated that a solution of the long-standing ar gument would release'several hun dred thousand Chinese soldiers fo the war against Japan. The Yugoslav crisis Is consid ered as explosive an issue amonu the allies as the touchy problem of Poland. It came to a head when Kin. Peter rejected an agreement be tween Prime Minister Subasic in London and Marshal Tito in Yugo slavia for a single government am a regency.

The Germans are said to have started reducing ammunition in Italian itles immediately behind the ront, particularly in Bologna. The 5th army, spearheaded : by ie Americans, has not made any pectacular advances s i n c e it mashed the, Gothic line last Sep- ember. But it and the 8th army ave made a real if not ncws- vorthy contribution to the allied ause. Between them, they have ied up about 25 German divisions Italy -- divisions that the wehr- macht desperately needs on the vestern and eastern fronts. Only recently ·Lt. Gen. 'lark, commander of allied ground orces in Italy, told a house military affairs committee that the 2 rmies seldom were numerically' uperior to the Germans even vhen on an offensive. As a re- ult Clark considered that compared with GI's in other theaters, American soldiers in Italy were swinging more than their normal veight. pne-of the s/re spots among American soldiers is the fact that no one back home-- even their own elatives and newspaper editors-- eems to. realize that a static front n which two savage enemies are leadlocked, does not mean .that ighting is easy and nothing is happening. In fact it is quite the contrary. t means that the enemies are so equally matched that victory will go to the one with the most endur- »ce. · · · Several very unhappy letters about this situation have been published in the Stars and Stripes nailbag column. These letters are 'rom soldiers complaining they received from home messages in which their relatives congratulated Jiem on being "safe" on a front ike Italy rather than on a more active front in France.

Gen. George C. Marshall, army chief of staff and Adm. Ernest J. King, commander in chief of the V. S. fleet headed the list of military leaders scheduled to attend the off-the-record conference. The special meeting was .called as the house military affairs committee pr-pared for linal action on legislation designed to force men in the 18 f» 45 year brackets into essential activities as needed. Committee Chairman Andrew J. May, (D. Ky.,) predicted that thii Marshall-King reports would bol- ·;r* congressional support for the bill. "I expect they will lay it on the line and give us a true picture ol the situation," May said. "After h.arine Gen. Marshall and Adm King, I believe many members who might be against the bill wfll be convinced- that it la necessary to take action at once to meet the needs of the armed forces for men and supplies," May said the measure, which may get to the house as early as Friday, faced floor fights over some provisions, particularly one prohibiting unions from forcing workers assigned to plants to joii unions against their will in closec shops. But he added: "I have no doubt thai Ihe bil will be passed by the house substantially as the committee rec- r..imends." One house member said tha any bill opposed by both la'boi and Industry faced none-too bright prospects, and that charges of manpower wastage on the par i f the army and navy by Sen James M. Mead, (D. N. Y.,) chair man of the senate war invest!gat ing committee, would furthei crmplicate the issue. Members favoring the bill salt that progress of the new Russian drive would mean an inevitabl wave of optimism that woul again cause workers to look fo peace jobs. This, they said, wa additional reason why quick pas sage of the bill was necessary. before being beaten back. Buy your War B o n d s an Stamps from your Globe-Gazette 'Great - . - - ,, - KGLO-CBS.
