THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Eurian lakes between Ortelsburg and Lotzen" in the major defense line of East Prussia. The Russians had announced the capture of An- -gersDurg, at the northern end of the most important of these lakes. Ortelsburg, Lotzen and Anger- bur? all are Important communication centers in passageways be- ·tween the lakes, and the German- held part of East Prussia appeared to have been whittled down to an area of about 15 miles sauare-- only a third of the 14,000-square- mile province. Soviet, dispatched described the entire East Prussian battlefield as a scene of German rout. The roads were littered with German bodies and equipment. Abandoned freight trains stood in deserted freight yards, their cars loaded with tanks, munitions, food, clothes and equipment. The retreat. from Insterburg, soviet writers said, was so chaotic that the Germans failed to-blow Luvufvsobl and wreck factories. A soviet correspondent- reporting the tide of "battle bad "practically reached the outskirts ol Konlssberg" said one . spearhead soviet division made a 15-mile march in a single night. The economic wealth o£ East Prussia seemed likely to fall intact into soviet hands. Rokossovsky's dash along the border of East Prussia and the Polish corridor apparently brought . him within about 20 miles of Danzig, the disputed city that was a cause of the warl Meanwhile, travelers arriving in Stockholm irom Germany said preparations were being made to · move the German eovernment offices from Berlin "to some spot in ·central Germany." Other reports said civilians were streaming back ·into the reicH from Foznan and that the German command had been forced to take drastic measures in diverting them to secondary roads. Southwest of Budapest, half of. ·which has been already occupied by Russian forces, the Germans put up a sizeable counterattack, but the Russian communique said it was repulsed.

FDR'S SON MAY BE PROMOTED Nominated for Brigadier General ,, ' Washington, (UR) -- The white house Thursday sent to ; the senate the nominations ot 78^army- colonels to be brigadier generals, including President Roosevelt's 2nd son, Elliott. Three major generals - were nominated to be temporary lieutenant generals--William H. Simpson, now commanding the- U.- S. 9th army in Europe (he previously held the rank by virtue of his command); Leonard "T. .Gerow, commander of the 5th army corps : in' Europe; and JUbert .C. ;.Wedemeyer, commander of TJ. S. forces .in China and,'chief; of staft'to Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek. Also sent to the senate were nominations of 22 brigadier generals to be temporary major generals. Elliott Roosevelt, 34, is now a colonel, in the air forces, comma wlihg : an aerial photographic reconnaissance wing, in Europe. H'ehtered the army-, in October, 1940i" as-a,reserve"captain. He has beeii^in^almbst continuous combat duty-siriife the. invasion: r of Africa --on that continent, in Italy, and on the western front. As in the cases of all army promotions, the nominations were sent to the senate in the president's name, but the white house explained that they actually originated with the war departments. AH service promotion nominations originate with the departments involved and are transmitted by the white house as a matter of technical form. The transcontinental '^"-priority plane ride of Elliott's bull mas- stiff, Blaze, currently is the subject of an,investigation by the sen- 'ate military affairs committee. Elliott brought the dog back from England in his plane when he was on leave late last year and left it in Washington to be shipped to his new wife, Actress Faye Emerson, when the opportunity arose. The air transport command gave it the priority rating, an action described by the white house and ·war department as an error in judgment.. Strike Halts Vital Copper Production Salt Lake City, U.R)--Thirty- seven trainmen on the Bingham and Garfield railroad walked off their 'job early Thursday and officials said the tieup of rail traffic would halt 30 per cent of the nation's vital copper production. The .strikers were. members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, w h o quit work to enforce their request for a 2nd man on 3 small electric trolley switch engines in the.yards at Bingham, Arthur and Magna yards. . . . . . Officials said the strike wouh idle 5,000 workers in copper mines and .mills depending on the railroad . for transporting ore. They said the strike would close the Utah Copper company mine a Bingham Canyon, which produces one third of the country's copper ore, arid the company's mills at Arthur and Magna.

Rocket Guiis Complement Other Power By BEAR ADM. GEORGE F. HUSSEY Chief, Navy Bureau of-Ordnance Washington, (U.ft)--In the tri- phibious war we are waging, the rocket is proving a tactical weapon ~ of immense and increasing value. . · · · .' -'. While rockets will not displace guns in :the foreseeable future, their performance in action has demonstrated t h e i r superiority over traditional projectiles in certain phases of military operations, and their potentialities for. additional uses are considerable. They deserve, and are receiving, increased operational and develop- .mental attention. The navy considers rockets so essential to the success of forthcoming operations that it is call- in? for a 300 per cent increase in their production during the next few months.' Production in the last quarter of 1945 will exceed 600 per cent of the production in the 4th quarter of 1941. This does not mean that rockets will take the place of other weapons to any substantial degree. Their role 'in modern warfare is more properly to complement, to deliver the punch in · circumstances which limit the effectiveness of other forms of firepower. A gun can hurl its projectile with greater velocity, at a speed .

DEGAULLE NOT INVITED TO MEET Says France Intends to Fortify Rhine Line Paris, (IF)--France intends to maintain · military forces all along the Rhine after the war. Gen. De Gaulle told a press conference Thursday. . ' . Meeting newspapermen for the first time in weeks, the French leader said regretfully that he had not been invited to the forthcoming; "biff three" conference. He told 200 French and foreign correspondents that France had made no formal request for an invitation to the conference, but had believed the heads of all 3 big countries had known of the French attitude.' "France docs not intend to finish this war without assurance that the French army is installed permanently alonfr the length of the Rhine from one end to the other," De Gaulle declared. ."They must be there not only for French security but for the security of the world." . He said history in the past. 100 years had shown such a course to be essential, and added that France had suffered too much in this war not to claim this guarantee.

"Somehow in all my surprise, I loosened t h e , clip and it fell to the ground. That made the next few seconds seem like a nightmare. I glanced at the man who ,was following behind me and he was just looking as though he couldn't believe his eyes. "But the pay-off-was in what the Japanese did. They were more surprised than we were and they just stared with their heady eyes .bulging. One suddenly said something that sonnded like 'Gowp' and he dropped his rifle and dove for the bush. The other looked at him and then looked at us and plunged into the jungle."

Madison. Wis., (U.RX-- Edwin B. Tred, 57, dean of the University of Wisconsin agricultural college, was chosen Thursday to succeed Clarence A. Dykstra as Wisconsin president. Fred was elected by unanimous vote of the university board of regents upon recommendation of a r e g e n t s' personnel committee which had been looking for possible successors since Dykstra's resignation Oct. 28. Dykstra now is vacationing in California prior to taking over his new post as provost of the University of California at Los Angeles early in February. Fred will become the 12th president of the University of Wisconsin on February 15, when Dykstra's resignation becomes effective. A bacteriologist, Fred received acclaim for his research in bacteriology and biochemistry. He joined the' Wisconsin faculty in 1913, was named professor of bacteriology and biochemistry in 1918 and was advanced to dean of the graduate school in 1934. He became head of the agriculture college in 1943. Yugoslav, factions- to reach an agreement. . ? : - , " - ' . . . ,..- . There actually are two Yugoslav governments .because of tbe split. There is the government headed by Marshal Tito, who takes inspiration from Moscow and who in fact controls Yugoslavia both militarily and politically. Then there is the so-called exile government in London, headed by Premier Subasic, and this . has been the government of King Peter until the other day when he fired it, or tried to. What happened was that Subasic, being practical minded, g^ot together with Tito and they agreed to form a single government under a regency, with the understanding that a plebiscite would be held after the war to decide whether the country wanted to continue the monarchy or substitute some other form of government. Peter refused . v to accept a regency, despite strong advice to do so from Prime Minister Churchill, and tried unsuccessfully to dismiss Subasic and his ministers. They declined to be dismissed. Here'enters Mr. Grew, and it would seem that his message may have a quick reaction, for Peter Is reported striving to effect a compromise with Subasic. It's said,the king wants his premier to resign and then form another government which will include some of the staunches! supporters of the monarchy. However, diplomatic observers believed the king's effort' would fail, and that Subasic would proceed to Belgrade and there establish a coalition government with Tito. As a matter of fact, the way things now stand Peter hasn't much chance of hanging on to his throne- There will'be a plebiscite in due course, but the matter would seem to be settled in advance--just as the Polish crisis has been determined. Marshal Tito, working with the friendly hand of Moscow on his shoulder. Ask Prompt House Action on May Bill Washington, C/P) -- The argument that fighting armies need help now accompanied a house military committee recommendation Thursday for prompt action on national service legislation. Shortages of war material are "real and immediate," the committee said in sending to the house floor a bill to require every man between 18 and 45 to work where he is needed under threat of induction, fine or imprisonment. The committee completed action on the legislation late Wednesday after 2 weeks of consideration and, in a last .minute move for harmony, - eliminated. ,-_pn a close vote an "anti-closed shop" amendment vigorously opposed by organized labor. ; - .- ' The rejected amendment would have permitted' a ' registrant to work in a union shop without joining a union, if his draft board told him to go there. Instead the committee wrote in a ' provision requiring local draft boards to give a man "a. reasonable choice of employers for/whom to work." It left in the hands of the director of war mobilization, or someone designated by him, tbe authority to'determine -what are essential occupations. But it confined to draft boards the .-power o£ nearly 3,000 feet per second. Its limitations are those of range, and heavy recoil, which requires a heavy, relatively complicated and expensive mount structure. A rocket does not impart as great velocity to its projectile, but its launching device is light, simple and inexpensive and there is no substantial recoil. This is of obvious advantage particularly in increasing aviation firepower. No present day airplane can mount a 5-inch gun but planes are carrying 5-inch rockets and can carry larger ones. . Although steps are under way fo increase the accuracy of rocket fire, a gun projectile can be sent to tbe exact spot of vulnerability with far greater certainty that it will land there and not in the near vicinity. On the other hand, rockets can be used where guns cannot be brought to bear. They have proved of particular value in laying down a close-in barrage as landing boats approach enemy shores and rocket launching planes can be more effective than bomb dropping over where targets are pin-pointed.

The action to be dramatized on Thursday's program, took place at Guam and was the occasion of the first assault by pur men to recapture the first American-owned island that had been taken by the Japs. Excitement ran high among the men in Lt. Grissim's company when word came through that this was to be-their mission and every man felt the significance and danger'of the operation in view of what its recapture would mean .to our future fighting hi the Pacific. When the first assault was made on the island, a' beachhead landing was not possible because of the terrain and, it was necessary to establish a strong-hold on a ridge which was some. 400 feet and rose at an angle of 75 degrees. Lt. Grissim, as artillery observer,. and a small group of Marines were commissione'd to scale the ridge in order, to direct the battery fire from below which would blast the Japs from the top of the ridge!
