14 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MONDAY, JANUAKY 29, 1945 HITLER LEAVES NORWAY TO FATE Believe Agreement to: Withdraw Nazi Forces London, (U.R)--Adolf Hitler was believed Monday to have informed Vidkun Quisling, puppet premier of Norway, that Germany. must abandon Norway and its nazi rulers to their late--almost certain death. . An official German DNB agency dispatch from the fuehrer's headquarters said Hitler and Quisling had concluded a "cordial talk" in which "full aud sincere agreement was achieved concerning all problems of common interest to Germany and Norway." The "agreement," informed London circles asserted, was on the necessity for the withdrawal of German forces from Norway to bolster the faltering wehrmacht for a desperate attempt to stall the jhrushing red army and the impending allied offensive in the west. There also appeared little doubi · that; Quisling had expected bat news "when, he.received the summons to Hitler's headquarters, and had hoped only to retain enough German troops to prevent a spontaneous uprising or one incited b; allied parachutists in which his own life would be forfeit. At least some .German troops from Norway already have shown up on the western front, including the 6th SS mountain division, am even, more have been reported in action in the east. Apparently reliable reports als said'th'at Col. Gen. Lothar'Hendu lie, German commander in Nor way; had been called to the east ern front; leaving a Genera Blonme to supervise the evacua tion of Norway. H i t l e r presumably informe Quisling that he would be give help again only if the Germans b some miracle succeeded in hurlin ,the.Russians back across the naz ·border and succeeded in holdin .the allies in the westl. DNB glossed over the confer ence with a report that-Hitler ha reaffirmed Germany's Intention I "restore'full freedom and inde pendence to Norway after the vie torious end of the struggle fo .Europe's destiny." ;The importance of the talk was underlined by the fact tha they were attended by 'Germa . Foreign Minister Joachim von Rib bentrop; Hans Heinrich Lammerb chief of Hitler's chancellery; Mar tin Bormann, chief of the naz party chancellery, and Josef Ter boven, reichs commissioner fo Norway.

South A f r i c a (U.PJ--Seventeen Addo elephants which are roaming Addo Nationa Park crashing through fences and destroying crops, to the consterna tion of local farmers, present a major headache to governmen authorities here. If the farmers had their way they would probably shoot th elephants are. all that are known to do unless-something is devisei' to curb the animals. But publi opinion is all for preserving them somehow, perhaps ,in a simila manner that the United States 'au thorities adopted to save the buf falo. For these '17 South Africa' elephoants are all that are know: to be left from the extensive herd that formerly ranged the country side when the first Europea stepped on to these shores. The Addo elephant differs from all others in that it is practically tuskless and generally is much larger than other species. For that reason it is of scientific interest to zoologists, and as such also a good tourist attraction. Addo park, the nabitat, consists of close thickets of low-growing t h o r n Mimosa brush and scrub. The nature of PATROLS ACTIVE IN ITALY AGAIN Volunteer Group Traps Nazi Garrison . Rome, (U.PJ -- Patrols continued active on the 5th and 8th army fronts despite 'severe weather conditions, headquarters said Monday. · ' ; . . . . . ..South of Bologna an American volunteer combat patrol, Iei$ by Lt.

They destroyed a neighboring house from which small arms fire was coming by placing a demolition charge at the foundation. · The communique, for tbe 25th consecutive day, mentioned only patrol activity. , No" changes were reported on the 8th army front, ~-'... .' SHIPYARD GIANTS--Four mammoth cranes, working as a team, lift into place a huge section of a ship at'U.'S. Steel's federal shipyard at Kearn'y, N. J. · CEILING PRICES ON CATTLE Last Basic Food Under-Direct Control Washington, (/P)--Ceiling prices [or live cattle went into effect Monday, the last important'basic food commodity to be put under direct price control. The office of price administration said the effect will be "to give buyers and sellers--from caU tie feeders to retailers--rea'son- ablc assurance of fair margin between legal buying prices and legal selling prices so that they can do business profitably." , Heretofore price ceilings have applied only to meal, not t'o ; live cattle. ' - . ' The order establishes an "overriding ceiling" on live cattle and calves for each of 24 zones and 10 market centers. This ceiling--the top .figure above which no cattle of any grade can be sold--is $18 a hundredweight at Chicago until July 2, when.the ceiling will be lowered to 317.50. A similar 51-cent reduction also will go into effect at that time: at all other' market centers and zones. . The order exempts cattle or .calves sold for breeding or dairy purposes 'and those sold by members of recognized farm youth organizations, such as - 4-H clubs, at sales: approved by OPA. 'BATION" CARDS IN BRAILLE .Boston. (U.R)--Peter Campbell, a downtown tobacco dealer, is blind. '·--but he has his own method of preventing customers from buying more than one package.of cigarettes a day. Campbell has issued, his own ration cards, each bearing the customer's name--in Braille. HUSBAND WOUNDED Calniar--Mrs. Willard Lawerence received a telegram Sunday morning from the war department stating'that her husband, Pvt. Willard Lawerence, had been wounded in action in Belgium.

Adv On Fojjrlh .of July in 1826--the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence --two former* presidents, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, died. And on the 55th anniversary, Fourth of July, 1831, former President James Monroe died. r this growth, upon which the elephants feed, makes it unnecessary for t h e m to use tusks to root around in the ground in search of food, with the result that t h e i r tusks have atrophied and are now no more than rudimentary ;rowth_s. Seeking a solution that will satisfy all sections of the public, in- clud.ing the angry farmers, Sen. A. M. Conroy. minister for lands, has urged that a committee of experts be formed to determine the best methods of checking the forays, yet preserving the elephants. An early suggestion that a fence should be built around a section of Addo park, constructed from old railroad ties, has been discarded as impractical. The Eastern Province H e r a l d joined the campaign to protect thei elephants, on the ground that "the world becomes poorer for the disappearance of any known species of wild life." EVERY MINUTE HAPPY Sweetwater. Tex., OI.R)--Chief Commissary Steward Brooks, stationed with the navy overseas, had a lot to tell his wife in Sweet- wafer.
