WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE HITLER EXHORTS REICH TO FIGHT Says People to Battle ; Until Final Victory London, tfP)--The German nation, beset by powerful invading armies, embarked Wednesday on the 13th year of the nazi regime, exhorted by Adolf Hitler to accept "boundless misery" as the price of continued resistance. Germany, Hitler proclaimed to the world Tuesday nlcht, will fight on to the death--"fight on no matter where and no matter under what circumstances until final victory crowns our efforts." His speech marking the 12th anniversary of his ascendancy to the chancellorship on Jan. 30, 1933, was.broadcast from his headquarters amidst news of continuing Russian advances from the east-victorious strides that now have carried to within 55 miles of greater Berlin. , "The cruel fate which is overtaking us in the east, in village and market places, in the country and in towns, is exterminating (German) people by the tens of thousands," Hitler declared. "But it will be mastered in the end." Hitler twice asserted that God had'given him a mission. "The Almighty" saved him from assassination, he declared, and he saw in ibis "confirmation of my assigned task." f The man who sent his armed legions into virtually every country of Europe gave the German people a nebulous promise of victory despite his growing reverses. ' When "this most gigatitic of all world dramas will have ebbed and peace* bells will ring," Hitler declared, still at the head of Europe will be "that nation (Germany) which has led Europe for one .and one-half thousands of As Hitler spoke there were growing indications that President Roosevelt, Prime M i n i s t e r Churchill and Premier Marshal Stalin already may have met in a momentous session. Seemingly taking into consideration a possible "surrender now" demand by the Big 3, Hitler declared: 'Every promise these statesmen are making to their people is of no importance because they cannot fulfill their assurances." In the ringing tones of all his old time eloquence, he flung defiance at the allied leaders: 'As a ruthless national socialist and a warrior of my nation I want to assure these statesmen once and Corevcr that any attempt to influence national' socialist Germany by WUsonian phrases shows a- naivete which Is unknown In the Germany of today." He pictured Germany as the bulwark against bolshevism, a familiar cry from many previous addresses, and declared feat "by forming a sworn community (to fight to the finish) we have the right to go before the Almighty and ask his grace and blessing." "There is nothing more a nation can do," he told his German listeners, "than that everyone who is fit to fight fights, everyone fit to work works." *TM et *^\Overblouse Nashua Airman Ready for Overseas Service Nashua--Cpl.
