JANUARY 29, 1945 dan pressure from three sides.) Berlin said the Russians 'had crossed the Oder north and south of Breslau at a dozen points between Clogau, 117 miles southeast of Berlin, and Cosel, 35'miles west of fallen Beuthen. On Zhukov's northern flank, red army units drove 29 -miles · into the old Polish corridor northwest of Bydgoszcz, capturing Sepolno, six miles from the German Pomeranian |rontier at a point 74 miles southwest 'of Danzig. . Still another soviet column rolled to within three miles of the Pomeranian frontier. Other Russian troops crossed into the Polish corridor from the east, 25 miles northeast of Bydcosicz. In east Prussia, where the Moscow radio announced that 250,000 Germans are trapped, Berlin said Russian troops attacking from the east had broken into the outskirts of Konigsberg, and street lighting w a s i n progress. . · ' . - ' · ' The liquidation of the nazi garrison trapped in Buda, western section of Budapest, continued Sunday 1 . Russian troops captured 12 mote of the city blocks, while other,soviet forces launched several strong'counterattacks against a surprising German drive southwest of-the city. . HOPKINS ON. WAY TO ROME London, {#)--Harry L iHopkins has visited London and Paris, meeting Prime Minister Churchill and General de Gaulle,'arid has gone on to'Rome to'see Pope Pius XII iri an "information tour"'tor the president before -the big 3 parley. : - . ' ! ' ' Ah American-imposed censorship had banned any mention,o£ Hopkins' movements until Mon^ day.- . . . -. . - ·· - . . .·; Hopkins' tour of European cap. itals underscored tbe role that discussions of the postwar political shape of Europe may play in tbe impending conference of Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin. Hopkins spent a week in London, and reached Paris last Friday. Diplomats are speculating- that an immediate surrender call to Germany might issue from the meeting of allied leaders. Pointing to the Russian drive toward Berlin and the possibility that Gen. Eisenhower rriay 'be preparing to launch a big offensive from the west, some diplomatic sources expressed, the view that President Roosevelt, Prime Minister, Ch'urchill and Premier Stalin would consider the feasibility of a "surrender now" declaration to the Germans. A British foreign- otfice commentator disclosed that, its propaganda to Europe was plugging Churchill's Jan. 18 speech in commons, in. which ;.hjEr.toId:;the-Ger^ mans'' '"K - you . stirrehder: '/now 1 nothing you will have to endure after the war. will be · co mparable to.what you otherwise are going to suffer, in 1945." · . : ° It was not until the Paris radio announced that Hopkins was reported conferring now wilh Gen. de Gaulle that this part of trie preparations for the WE 3 meetine could be disclosed. Hopkins and U. S. Ambassador John G. Win ant were closeted for long hours with Churchill and Foreign Secretary Eden- during the week in a concentrated effort to reach a solid Anglo-American front before sitting down with Stalin". - ·' PATTERN FOR BOMBING IN SKIES OVER REICH-- Wavy traits of vapor float , through the .sky over Germany as fighter planes of the U.'S. 8th air force streak through' | a formation of Plying Fortresses while on the lookout for enemy planes.

German air activity over the western front has been virtually nil the past 10 days.- The march- of the Russian army coupled with the German withdrawal from the Ardennes also has had -a definite effect'on German soldier morale, with desertions -increasing materially in many places.

He specializes on the Ayrshire breed of cattle, with about 125 in his herd, practically all of them for milking purposes. They're beautiful specimens. One was accorded first honors in an international dairy show. " Lacking corn. for ensilage and protein in his cattle's diet. Sir George has turned to a rank type of bean known as "carse" to take the place of corn. What seemed to be the'one largest field on his farm was given over to this crop. Most of the fields, incidentally, are only 8 or 10 acres, separated one from the other by hawthorn hedgerows. The "carse" bean grows on a stalk about 4 feet tall.- On the whole it resembles our soybeans. The .bulky bean pods seem to come right out of the main stalk, with each pod Containing 3 to 5 beans, each about a half inch long and almost as thick. About Oct. 1 these are harvested, dried in the pods and then ground up for cattle feed. They are rich in protein. "Our cows really ;go ; for it," Sir : :George as- suredfmej. - j"-:". ·:' ·.=' i .v. i -v. ,:;·,''-, ; "The cattle are"-rotated" in the various grazing plots. After 2 or 3 days in one, they're moved over into another. The annual rainfall in Scotland is somewhat 'greater than .in most parts of America and rather, more equitably .distributed among the seasons. This makes for lush grazing conditions. F ROM the. bean field, we moved on to the home of the farm manager for an inspection of the 2 large milk shed's. There we found everything modern and tidy . . .-cement floors, individual drinking fountains for the cattle v . . milking machines of the latest design a milk cooling system . . . automatic bottler everything you'd find in a modern American dairy. Brit, we found one thing you don't find in a modern American dairy. We met up here for our first time with the British land army ... 7 girls of about college age operating under Britain's national service act. They had a choice between factory work or the farm and chose the farm. Their job- is to~operate the milk- Ing machines. Most of these girls-- and this is true generally -- come from the cities, especially London. Most of them beginning their land army service. had -never even seen a cow. And they seemed perfectly contented in their work. They're an important part of the explanation of Britain's'food production miracle. · . I had wondered about ttieir pay and here's what I found out. For a 5-day. 40 hour week, their base pay is about .88. By working an extra 2 days, however, they step this weekly pay up to about -$12. Out of this they must, pay for their food and lodging. This leaves them an amount between"S7 and S9 a week. And this is Just about what girls working in - factories receive.. ·Another pleasant memory lingering with me Is the delicious tea, with all the. Scotch trimmings, served (o us by Mrs. Duncan, wife o f , the farm manager, in their home just before we continued our journey to ' Glasgow, which incidentally is vrhere Sir George markets his bottled mllfe. It wasn't a tea; it was a banquet. I'm sore I picked up 2 or 3 of the 19 pounds one of my -"One Man's Opinion" commentaries. '. If therefore I seem to be passing' lightly over the MacBeth farm on this occasion,' it's because I dealt with it._in some detail in that previous commentary. I think I mentioned everything except that wonderful turkey noon meal to which I-was treated by Mrs. MacBeth. It was, incidentally, as much an event for' the MacBeths themselves as for me, I was assured. , · O N this 300 acre tract of what in Iowa would be considered rather poor land, because of its high gravel content, the MacBeths, with the aid of land army girls, carry on a rather diversified farm operation. Mr. MacBeth centers his attention on a dairy herd arid its food requirements and ' Mrs. MacBeth centers on poultry, especially turkeys.' ' I had thought that our American farmers were pretty rnnch regimented. Bnt that isn't- my view any more, not at least on a comparative basis. A committee representing the food ministry not only tells the MacBeths what they shall raise, and on what tracts, bnt how. when and where their products shall be marketed. The procedure goes-2 or .3 steps beyond that known to oar farmers. ' As Mr. MacBeth and I tramped his fields, airplanes droned above us. ;Among them were scores of FTying;" £tor«sses r .; ana; lab'erators heading liaclt''ini formation.from a mission over Belgium. Mr. MacBeth knew the name and type of every single plane.' ; ' " "I ought to." he explained modestly, 'Tve been watching them from this 'farm for 1 the past ^5 years, day,and night." An.-aerial dogfight overhead really adds to the interest of farming, he observed with a smile. U P in Scotland, the "carse" bean takes the place of corn in the cattle diet. In middle England, at least i n - this particular 'section, a special type of pea is used. -. . "Those Scotch beans." said Mr. MacBeth, a native of Scotland himself and later an Australian, "require more fertility than we have in this soil." But Swede turnips, Mangel- wortzel (called mangels) and potatoes really grow with a vengeance in soli which would be viewed with contempt by an lowan. Because It was near the harvesting time, I asked my host to uncover one- hill of potatoes for me. Believe it or not, there emerged from tharhill of gravity soil an even dozen of the biggest, smoothest potatoes I've ever seen. That explained to me why it was that I'd been gettine potatoes-^and in copious' quantities--at least 2 and olten 3 meals a day ever since I had arrived in London. T ATER in the afternoon, as we *-' sat in the village inn waiting for s train, to take me back to London. I put this question to Mr. MacBeth: "What about the future of farming in Britain? Are you going to keep - to your present tempo or are you going to return to the pre-war preponderance of grazing land?" To this he replied: "It all depends on whether the government continues the present price supports. With this government encouragement, we can and will continue to produce most of our food needs: without it. we'll return to the scale' of farming we had up to 1939 when the war began." As a tenant farmer who, by his own admission, has. done rather well financially under the wartime setup. Mr. MacBeth was frank in expressing a hone that I - had lost during my previous 1 the price-support subsidy ar- month on a London diet. T HI Wi HE other larm on which 1 was guest during my time in Britain was the 300 Ecre tract of Mr. and Mrs. Peter MacBeth, about 50 miles north of London near Bletchley. The MacBeths are tenants, and their farming operations are of a quite different nature from Sir George's. Mr. MacBeth could be referred to as a "dirt farmer." Sir George as a "gentleman farmer." Both, however, are doing their wartime job. Mr. and Sirs. MacBeth, 2 or 3 days aft«r my risit with them, came down to London and the 3 of us did a broadcast from ihe British Broadcasting company's ransement would be continued. He conceded, however, the existence of » larger problem involved in the matter. Without her so-called empire. Britain would become just a little island off the west coast of Europe. And unless the people of that far-tlnnr em- Dire can sell their foodstuffs to Britain, they'll have nothing; with which to buy Britain's manufactured products. It's a problem ot no small dimensions.

FDR May Try 9 Save Post for Wallace W a s h i n g t o n, (#)--President Roosevelt may take a direct hand in efforts to salvage a cabinet post for Henry Wallace. Senate sources said Mr. Roosevelt has been asked by supporters of the former vice president either to transfer government lending agencies from the department of commerce by executive order or state publicly that he would approve' legislation to accomplish this. These same persons said they were informed that when Mrs Franklin D. Roosevelt attends a dinner in Wallace's honor in New- York Monday night she may take along a. message from the president to read. ' .Reports circulated, meanwhile, that if the dual powers' formerly wielded by Jesse Jones .are separated. Stabilization Director Fred Vinson may be the president's choice for loan administrator. .Wallace's opponents, both re- inblican and democrat, believed ibey had the strength to deny him ;he commerce job, with or without the multi-billion dollar lending authority--Dot that in so doing they micmV. create for-him an nn- derdog -role which he might eventually turn' to political advantage. That possibility troubled senate republicans as they met in party :onference Monday morning. It likewise was on the minds of senate democrats who see in Wallace a powerful contender for their party's presidential nomination in 1948. , Friends of Wallace already have let it be known that he is prepared, if necessary, to accept what might be termed a martyr's role if he suffers a setback in the senate. A source close to the former vice president told the United Press that Wallace - was ."undismayed" by' the fact that the senate commerce committee bad delivered him a double blow. Nor was he said to be perturbed by the fact that unofficial polls indicated the senate was ready to reject his nomination and perhaps take out of the commerce department the lending authority which Wallace would like to use in promoting what he would call a common man's economic bill of rights. This informant pictured Wallace as being prepared, if he is rebuffed, to take his -case to the electorate through speeches and writings. There is no question but that the congress of industrial organizations and other l i b e r a l groups would be glad to provide their champion with all the forums at their disposal. Wallace was said to feel that the issue--his own liberal economic views against the conservatism of bis senate opponents--has been nicely drawn In the week since his nomination was sent to the senate by President Roosevelt as a political reward. While senators wrestled with that problem they also engaged in a tug-of-war over whether the senate should vote first on Wallace's nomination or on the bill.of Sen. Walter F. George, D., Ga., to take federal loan operations out of the commerce department. Friends of Wallace wanted a vote on the George bill first. They figured that the senate would be more willing to confirm the Wallace appointment if it appeared he would not get control of federal loan operations. They 'also had hopes, if the nomination were approved, that the George bill could be defeated in the house or by presidential veto. Wallace's opponents wanted a vote tint on the nomination. They figured it would be easier to defeat Wallace as lone as there was any chance he would ret control over government lending operations. They hoped to pass the "divorce" legislation anyhow. An informal poli by the United Press indicated that Wallace's opponents have enough votes to accomplish both objectives. Out of 70 senators questioned, 38 said they would vote against confirmation and 21 for. Six said they were open-minded on both the nomination and the George bill. Others would not express themselves. The poll on the George bill showed 48 senators for it and B against. ZHUKOV READY FOR BERLIN Hero of Stalingrad Drives Toward Capital By'EDDY GZIMORE Moscow, (IP) -- Destiny may nake Marshal.'Gregory k. Zhu- cov, hero of Moscow and Stalin-' irrad, the man to lay siege to Berlin, now only some 100 miles ahead of his battering ram armies. . Zhukov commanded the red army men who save Moscow--1,000 miles from Berlin--in the fall of. 1941.-He co-ordinated 3 army fronts which saved Stalingrad-1,380 miles from Berlin--in 194213. , - . . The 50 year old marshal now is assistant commander-in-chief of the red army, 2nd only to Stalin. When foreign . correspondents visited the battlefront west of Moscow after Hitler's drive on Moscow had been 'stopped, they saw Zhukov for a few moments. -Who is that?" one asked. 'A general named Zhukov-- you'll hear a lot about him before the war is over," was the reply. Now Zhukov is actively commanding the first White Russian front striking beyond Poznan on the shortest road to Berlin. T h i s strategy of Zhukov's breakthrough near Poznan, last great Polish bastion between Warsaw and the reich, was. told Sunday by Pravda Correspondent Yakov Makarenko: Zhukov drew up in Gniezno, 28 miles northeast of Poznan, and Wrzesnia, 28 miles southeast of the city.. From Gniezno he sent a large storm group southward to a point midway between Gniezno and Wrzesnia.- From Wrzesnia a similar group was sent northward. Good highways" and railways lead into . Poznan from Gniezno and Wrzesnia, and the Germans apparently believed Zhukov would move down them. Instead, Zhukov struck at the city from his position midway between the 2 .cities. A few hours after he opened this attack, he began 2 huge outflanking movements, m o v i n g tanks and motorized infantry northwestward from Gniezno'and southw'estward from Wrzesnia. The central assault on Poznan from the east ivas stepped up at the same time. The Pravda correspondent said j the Germans, believing Zhukov j was throwing everything against! the city, moved in closer to Poz-, nan. The nazis were particularly anxious to defend Poznan' from the east, he added, because of. the large aviation works at Swarzedz 5 miles from the city. It produced many Focke-Wulfs, and the Germans had not had time to move much of its .equipment.' -.-.But defense of this airplane center complicated the-defense of Poznan, Makarenko continued, and Stah'n announced Saturday, night that Poznan had been surrounded. Another Russian correspondent said 292 planes were captured at the Focke-Wulf factory, along with several trains piled high with ammunition, bombs, food, and oth- OWI Asks Americans . to Help Country With Small Services Washinelon, (u.PJ--A message from the office of war information: .

GREGORY ZHUKOV FRENCH PLAN TO HELP ALLIES Will Produce Tires, Cotton Textiles Soon Washington, (UP.) -- The allies have completed initial arrangements to bring French industry into the joint war effort in the form of a go-ahead on production of 2 critical war materials, it was learned Monday. Informed sources said the first contracts called for production o£ tires for the army at the Renault plant near Paris and the Michelin plant at Clairmont-Ferrand, and for production of cotton textiles, notably tent duck. These are 2 of the items on which production in the United States is behind schedule. The combined production and resources board is conferring with military officials here to decide how to co-ordinate the tire production programs here and 'in France--what raw materials must be sent abroad and how French production might be expanded to take care of essential French needs. Paris alone is said to need 4,000 new tires for distribution of food. UN ON TOD* DIAL G INGER ROGERS and Ray MiUand will recreate their starring roles in "Lady in the Dark" when Producer Cecil B.

"Lady in the Dark" revolves around the.double life of. Liza Elliott, the successful editor of a. sophisticated fashion magazine .by day and a glamour girl, in her dreams, by night. To solve the nerve-racking nightmares which beset her,, Liza, played by Ginger Rogers, goes in .desperation to a psychoanalyst. But the psychoanalyst's romantic interpretations of. h e r , dreams bewildered her domineering soul no less than her sudden indifference to her devoted suitor and her .continued annoyance, both awake and asleep, with her brillant but impertinent advertising manager, Charley Johnson, played by Ray Milland. The climax of the struggle between Liza-by-day and Liza-by-night comes when she discovers what she has wanted all her life.
