GASSINO LIKE BIG DUMP HEAP Blackened Signs of City Stick Out of Ruins By LYNN HEINZERLING · With The 5tlh Army at Cassino, (/P)--Allied infantrymen, struggling to drive the Germans from Cassino, were lighting on unfamiliar ground Thursday--a battlefield on winch the soldiers did not know whether they were standing on a former street, a former dwelling, a park filled with rubble or the town's fire station. From our observation post in the valley before the town Cassino looked like a vast dump heap, with blackened signs sticking out of the debris. "We were walking right over the buildings and did not know whether we were o n . the road 01 where we were," said LI.' Maxwell Jonah, an engineer who entered ihe town Wednesday night looking for mines. Many of the mines Jonah was looking for were covered up or de- pnaled by the tumbling stone. The "ieutenant and his party, which ncluded Lt. Robert O'Lcary and Capt. H6ward R. Mardin, found 24 on the road leading into the town. "There were very few buildings Jctt standing and they are hollow shells," O'Leary said. Jonah added that though it was black the first part of Wednesday night, when the moon came up later the picture of the town which met their eyes was absolutely fantastic;. To add to the dismal note, it rained most of the night and the town, pulverized by one of the greatest air actions of its kind in history, was covered with water and mud.

Informed that her tax was SH3, she said she hadn't brought that much along, but could "make it--jiist around the corner," in the 4 minutes remaining. Tiie cashier's window was held open an additional It) minutes, but the woman did not return. Meanwhile, E. H.

"The greater part of German public opinion." Most said, "is split into li camps--those who t h i n k Germany will lose the war and be ruined by it, and those who t h i n k she will win the war but still be ruined by it. "His pride is another factor which keeps the average German going. The Germans' homes may be demolished by allied bombs, but so long as their pride is not, Hitler is safe from an uprising at home."

He raided the kitchen for a cake, a box of cookies, sacks of oranges and eggs, a piece of cheese, a loaf of bread and several packages of cigarels. Then, apparently, he began on the other items. He took a woman's watch set with 3 diamonds, 2 cameras, n skeet gun and rifle, a hunting bow and arrows, 2 fishing rods and a flashlight. To add insult to injury, "the man who came to dinner" went to Mulchy's nearby cabin where he fried the eggs, apparently ate most of the foot! and smoked some of the cigarets--but left the dirty dishes with which he had cook and eaten the food. MORTON'S SALT WHEN IT RAINS II POUIS Retailers Warned Not to Accept Ration Tokens Which Are Split DCS Moines, (I?)--Walter D. Kline, acting director of the DCS Moines OPA district, Thursday warned food retailers to guard against acceptance of s p l i t ration tokens, and emphasized that the retailers are the losers in such transactions. "We have just received official reports that a few merchants have received red and plue plastic tokens which have been split in two and apparently given them by customers to cheat on purchases of rationed foods," Kline' said. "We assume the tokens were split intentionally and wish to emphasize that severe penalties arc provided for splitting or otherwise mutilating them," he added. "We feel that merchants should guard against acceptance of split or mutilated tokens because there is no provision for protecting them against the loss in their ration Kropman Grocery 19 9th SI. N.
