Weathe^^ian 'Fixed 1 for Ice Follies A m e s--C o m e warm or cold weather, there'll be a shining arena of ice for the Frozen Follies of 1945, ice show at Iowa State college, Feb. 3. That's the promise of student managers of the show. Here's how they have the weatherman "fixed." Jan. 10 they started to build up a 150 by 75 foot rink on Clyde Williams field, in layers of ice one-eighth inch thick. They plan to keep building until the date of the show arrives. Then, if the" day turns out warm, they'll scrape the top slush aside and smooth the rink. And the top will have time to sheet over in the colder hours before the show opens at 8:15 p. m. The show, first of its kind to be held here, will feature student skaters with Jomae McCaine of Chicago, and Bob Chase, V-12 of Battle Creek, Mich:, starring. 1 Bleachers will be placed in a U around the rink. And gay costumes of the waltzing and elidine Z* SS l %i£, v £S t l£ fV S*ryi. skaters will be lighted by* spot! -' lights from above. The 40 minute show has been arranged in 3 acts. Syncopated South American rhythm will set the pace for the opening number in which 35 skaters will appear. "Rio pink" and black figure patterned costumes will be worn by the skaters in this number. Switching then to a slower pace, skaters will interpret the Strauss classic, "Vienna Life." And then, a comedy hit of "Gay Ninety" charm will close the first act. "Alice in Wonderland," portrayed by Miss McCain, will come to life in act II. For the final act, the show goes strictly military .63".! and strictly male. Twirling of JJ i flame batons and a fiery V .56ii! banked by the all-male cast of 23 skaters will provide the grand finale. 18IQWANSIN LOST BATTALION Veterans of Leyte Come Through Safely With the 24th Division in the; Philippines--(Delayed) UP)--The 2nd battalion of this division's civil war-fame^ 19th regiment carved an historic niche for the annals of Leyte's reconquest with/ an epic of grim courage and deter-; mination against overwhelming odds at.the critical peak of fighting for the Ormoc corridor. It became known as Leyte's "Lost Battalion." The, group included 18 lowaus who came through safely. The battalion was battle-fatigued from nearly a month of continuous fighting when it re-' ceived orders to advance through the mountains to throw a road block against Japanese reinforcements attempting to reach a strong troop concentration against American forces hammering to break southward toward Ormoc, This was before an amphibious" landing was made behind the enemy at Ormoc to smash his defense line. The battalion was commanded by Lt. Col. Robert B.'Spragine of Evanston, 111. Loaded with supplies and ammunition, the battalion had to fight the enemy and tortuous' mountain terrain for 1 days'to reach the road. After 24 hours without food, the men fought savagely to take dominating heights. Then they ate rice from the packs of dead Japanese and stripped the hearts from palm trees. An air] drop provided a fraction of a meal per day per man. They established the road block and held it for 4 days against en-' emy tanks, truck columns, artillery fire and fanatical charges. , Patrols fought for food dropped by airplane near the enemy. They fought for water from a mountain stream. The number o£ wounded in foxholes increased alarmingly. Medicine ran low. To conserve their dwindling ammunition sup-: ply, the men were ordered to fire-^ only when they could actually see their targets. ; · - · ' Men were continuously wet. Feet began to swell and "jungle rot" developed. They slept in fox-holes that were often half-filled' with water. Dysentery and stomach troubles weakened many. But they clung doggedly to the ,, block across the vital supply road s until ordered out after 4 days. . 1 The retirement took another 4 i days of fighting. Trails were £ treacherous. Stretchers made of j\ saplings and parachutes some- a times had to be passed from hand to hand down steep slopes. At one swollen river, a rope of bamboo" and vines had to be fashioned to help men across. When the battered 'battalion finally reached the main Ameri-:, can forces, its casualties were id" per cent killed or wounded. It had counted 600 dead Japanese and many more undoubtedly were pulled away during night attacks. Lublin Government to Ask 150,000 Germans for Rebuilding WarsaW The Lublin radio said Wednesday that the self-pro claimed provisional government of Poland will ask that Germany be required to send at least 150,000 men to help rebuild Warsaw after the war. Prof. Stanislaw Kaczorowski, head of the department of plan; ning and reconstruction, reported the Polish plan for using German- labor in an interview broadcast" from Lublin and recorded by the FCC.

Latest battlefield report of the outstanding accuracy of American heavy artillery comes from France where a force of Germans, surrounded in a stone building, was putting up strong resistance. Despite danger to themselves, American troops, only 300 yards away from the German-held building, called for heavy artillery An 8- inch howitzer more than 7 miles away answered--the first shell falling only 30 yards from the building and the next 3 hitting it squarely. xpr - pathy also the vocalist, accompanist and the Rev.
