Transocean, nazi news agency, said in a Berlin broadcast that the men were captured in the rear of the German front. "They were sentenced to death by a military tribunal and exe- .cuted by shooting," the broadcast said. Text of the German' statement as broadcast by Transocean said; "Eighteen British and American secret agents, led by the American Green and the Britisher Ehmer, who passed himself off as a major, have been captured in the rear of the German front on Slovak soil. "Interrogation showed they had been given the task of organizing sabotage in Slovakia and engaging · in economic and political espionage in the Anglo-American interest.

IFTS JEWELRY at ADY'S WATCH SHOP 19 West State NEW SALLMAN PAINTING --Warner Sallman, whose portrait of Christ has sold 4,500,000 copies, depicts here the support of millions of Christians to the determination of their Leader that there be no more war. Methodists are among those who are working for liberty and justice for all men, through their 4-year, 5-fold Crusade for Christ. Posters of the Sallman painting, now appearing in more than 41,000 Methodist churches across the nation, appeal for sacrificial contributions to "the $25,000,000 Crusade ice- lief and reconstruction fund, more tnan half of which will go for food, clothing and other aid for peoples of war devastated and occupied countries. Other phases of the Crusade for Christ call for support of co-operation among nations in the'postwar world, renewed evangelism efforts, education for Christian stewardship and improvement of Sunday school attendance. Sallman Painting Depicts Crusade for Christ Theme Artist Catches Vision of Methodists Crusade Aims for World at War NAZIS MAY BE SAVING TROOPS Casualty List Indicates Possibility of Stand By JUDSON O'QUINN London, (IP) -- While the red army's swift advances .have resulted in a great upswing of optimism here, the possibility is not being overlooked that the retreating Germans' may be extricating large numbers of troops for a desperate' stand inside the reich in the hope -of prolonging the war. Speculation along these lines is tightened by the absence official Russian reports of overwhelming enemy casualties -- a act suggesting that the Germans may be withdrawing under soviet iressure in accordance with a well -conceived strategic plan. This is not necessarily so. 11 may be "that the Russians, intenl upon cutting the enemy to pieces vith their armored columns, are not stopping to mop up pockets hopelessly cut off by their swift advance or to total up casualties Yet, there have been no official iloscow reports of the entrapmen' of large German forces. The only otal on German losses announced by Moscow was contained in the soviet communique of Jan. 21, which said that 65,000 nazis had aeen killed and 25,000 captured by 3 Russian armies in Poland during the first week of the offensive beginning Jan. 12. A subsequent announcement laid that Marshal Ivan S. Konev's first Ukraine army had killed 60,000 of the enemy and captured 21,000 in the first 10 days of the drive, but these fieures apparently over-lapped those issued previously. While these are large losses, they do not altogether suggest a rout when it is remembered they are spread over a 400 mile front. Furthermore, it must be remembered they represent only, a frac- 'tion of the 1,500,000 or mor.e men SCHOOL BUS ARRIVES GoldHeld--JConger Whyte arrived 'home recenjly from Richmond, Ind., with a new 48-passenger school bus, which is being used to transport local students for the Goldfield independent school district. .

HUGHES TO TALK ON KIWANIS--Roger Patton, president of ttfe Kiwanis cJub of Mason City, will tfe interviewed by W. J. Hughes in a 15-minute radio broadcast over station KGLO at 6:45 p.' m. Thursday. l The program, commemorating the 30th anniversary of Kiwanis International, chartered at-'Detroit during the week of Jan. 21,1915, will feature a discussion of the service club and its-role as a guardian of democracy in a war- torn world. , : · · . . ' . . · : Some 2,250 clubs and 139,000 Kiwanians throughout the United States and Canada will observe the anniversary of the organization, -which recently announced that its administrative theme'for 1945 would be "Win the War-Build for Peace." Bryson Asks Repeal of Obsolete Laws Des Moines, (VP)-- Iowa "has so many laws on its books that one of the most useful 'jobs the 51st general assembly could do would . Before attempting to put on to canvas the painting that has been adopted as the official Methodist Crusade for Christ painting, Warner Sallman, the artist whose "Head of.Christ" has become the best known and most widely distributed religious picture of our Phone 8891 times, conferred'. at great length with Crusade leaders." "I want to know all about the Crusade," said Mr. Sallman, "its aims and purposes, its inner genius and its scope." He listened attentively as "Methodism's boldest and most comprehensive program for world redemption" was outlined to him. A man of deep spiritual instincts and insight, the distinguished artist's eyes flashed as his heart began to bum with the imagina- the Germans are estimated have on the eastern front. to be to repeal "a bunch of that are obsolete and not those being tion that has characterized all his work. "I shall count it a great honor," he said quietly, "to try to capture on canvas some of the mighty challenge of this Crusade." m And he hurried off to his brushes and paints. How well Warner Sallman caught the vision of what the Crusade aims to accomplish is revealed in this painting--a painting which should stir all of Methodism to meet the opportunities enforced," Hep. C.' A. Brysoii (H- lowa Falls) said Wednesday. The'present Iowa code now has 14,000 sections he declared, "ant if it doesn't stop soon it will he just too bad." 'I think we should decrease the size of the code, now especially and save the paper," Bryson as- THE PLACE CALLED HEAVEN" Is It a Real Place? Will the People Be Real?

Garbed in the robes denoting His kingship, but with the scars of the hail-jprints still in His hands, the Christ strides through the scenes of war devastation. In this conception; the artist has daringly "brought Christ down,'to earth." Whereas most artists, from the old masters to contemporary painters, seem to persist in paintings of this sort in 'depicting Jesus floating above and somehow detached from the world. Mr. Sail- man has placed Him--where Jesus placed Himself--upon the earth itself, amid the sorrows and sufferings of the world, actively leading His people in the amelioration of distress and the healing of sin's wounds, whether those sins be individual or corporate. -Thus we have a striding Christ, as purposeful as, He Is compassionate, in the van of His people's inarch to "trample out the vineyards where the grapes of wrath are stored." His every expression and attitude reflect the imperativeness of the task. His left hand clenched, His right hand extended in appeal to the onlooker to join the march of Methodists on behalf of the bereft, His sleeves tossed back--every gesture portrays the compassion He feels. No remote Christ, this! Behind Him, marching in a V- shaped formation denoting the victory thatvwill surely attend, their way, come the. hosts of Christ-inspired Methodists. It will be noted that the artist here has included men and women, boys and girls, from every walk of life, and representing many races. In and through the scenes o£ devastation they come, this marching host, to minister with Christ and for Christ to such needs as this dire day has presented. And above them, symbolic of the hope they bring--the new dawn the Crusade stands for--is a colorful rainbow. · . In this forceful work Warner Sallman has not only made a great contribution to the Crusade for Christ, but he has also set the pace for religious artists to come. Well may we hope that this painting-like the Crusade it glorifies--will encourage all men to place Christ where for centuries He has sought to be, in the center of every effort for man's good. "I have been thinking of taking up with one of the committees the proposition for a.. commit tee bil to repeal a lot o£ the obsolete anc uninforced laws. "We have over a hundred bill. in the house alone now and tha should be enough if half of them the laws we now have in a year and come to understand them." Bryson said he wouldn't be surprised if the new, code were irinted after the close of this leg- slature, and if. so, it probably would have to be printed in two volumes so it could be handled with reasonable ease. An attempt was made two years ago and also four years ago to obtain repeal of- the obsolute and uninforced laws -but the effort failed. Bryson said those who should have been for repeal were against it. In one recent general assembly some 9DO bills were introduced In the senate and house and about 300 of them passed. That,-Bryson said, was "far too many--it was terrible." "Under some of the present Iowa laws-you couldn't even buy a newspaper, a bottle of milk, or a dish of ice cream on Sunday without violating the law," Bryson asserted. p are passed.
