St. Louis Woman Runs Wake You Up Service ST. LOUIS, (U.PJ--Gasoline rationing resulted in a new business for Mrs. Gwendolyn Sheltou of suburban University City. Figuring. that because more people would have to arise earlier tc; take a streetcar or bus, she opened a "wake you up" service with her household telephone and , i»i less than a week picked up scores- of customers. At present her most outstand- MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE ing client is a young woman who feels she must get to bed early so she can obtain a full night's sleep before her working day begins. Mrs. Shelton has explicit instructions to call her, no matter where she is, at 10 p. m. nightly so she can usher her guests to the door, or pick up her things and head for home. So far she must make no calls earlier than 5 a. m. nor later than 10:30 p. m: Mrs. · Shelton said her purpose in opening the service also was to assist her brother-in-law, An- Russ Troops Confident drew, who has been permanently ( THORNTON--Jean Luick has incapacitated as the result of an accident.

HANDLER United Press Staff Correspondent WITH THE RUSSIAN ARMY DRIVING ON ROSTOV, Jan. 19, (Delayed), (U.PJ--Red army men from generals to privates are confident that victory is only a matter of time. Their victories on six major fronts have naturally inspired them. But even the privates have an astonishing awareness of military realities and realize the extent of the job they have to do. They believe Die Germans are punch drunk now, but during a long stay at the front, I have never heard one man say the Germans had collapsed or were at the point of collapse. Further, the conviction that a second front will come eventually to help destroy the enemy plays a part in the Russian army man's confidence. * * * The victories the red army has won so far and the belief that even wore powerful blows are being held in reserve are important factors in the state of mind prevailing. * * * Lt. Gen. Rodion X. Malinowsky, chief field-commander under Col Gen. Andrei I. Yeremcnko in the southern drive for Rostov tolci me: "The German soldier's faith victory undoubtedly has been un- ' dermmed. The more we lick them ! the less faith they'll have in victory." '·But they haven't been licked yet," commented Alaj. Gen. Piolr V. Kotelkov. Russian soldiers are not given to extremes of exaltation or depression. They arc dogged in defeat, calm in victory. They carry on their duties in the same business-like manner regardless of adversity or success. They accept reverses only as temporary phenomena and regard ultimate victory as unquestionable. ¥ * * Russian soldiers are taciturn. They don't speak easily and when they do, they say little. In that respect they certainly are among the best. disciplined troops in the world. X * * Even the simplest peasant soldier understands the necessity for 1 complete silence regarding operations, ti-oop movements, equipment and identification of objectives and personnel. When you talk to a Russian soldier for the first time he looks you over while, he makes up his mind whether to reply. To get him to talk it is not sufficient to iden- i tify yourself as an allied corre- j spondent. He rarely speaks unless his officer approves. ~~ We were warned when we got to the front not to get persistent if a sentry should challenge us. The officer told us laconically that in case of an argument the soldier would carry out his order-.* * * The soldier looks businesslike always. When he guards prisoners on Hie way to the rear he keeps his finger on his rifle trigger. It is a somewhat grim threat and the prisoners show that they know it. : * ¥ * I sat today in the candle lighted room of a cossack station near the Don. We were talking to five crack young scouts, just back from a long expedition into the enemy lines. They had surprised and wiped out, with guerrilla comrades, a German divisional staff. These youngsters, m their earlv twenties, held their tommy gun's between their legs as they talked. The talk was interrupted when three German airmen, shot down several hours before, were brought in for questioning. The scouts, who had killed innumerable Germans in close or actual hand to h a n d combat did not move an inch or change their posture when they saw the Germans. 'They' stonily watched the enemy prisoners. It was difficult to read the thoughts -of the scouts but the only facial recognition of the Germans' presence I saw was a brief look of contempt as the prisoners talked in. German, which none of the scouts understood.
