MARCH 17. 1944 This Paper Consists of Two Sections--Section One NO. 139 Report Russian Troops Have Smashed Way to Dniester River at Several Points BULLETIN L o n d o n , OPj--Reuters news service said Friday that Marshal Ivau S. Koiiev's 2nd Ukrainian army has reached the Dniester river "at several points" and that German forces already have begun a retreat into Bessarabia at Mo- cilev-Podolski. This would mean that Russian forces have reached the old Rumanian frontier and now stand within 50 miles of the Prut river, which Moscow considers as the present Rumanian border. London, (#0---The reel army, plunging rapidly toward the prewar Rumanian border, has dealt German communications in the lower Ukraine another severe blow by cutting anew the Odessa- Lwow rail line and soviet forces are closing in steadily on the nazi- heki strongholds of Vinnitsa and Nikolaev, Moscow announced Friday. Another t r i u m p h also was announced in a soviet communique-- the linal liquidation of several German divisions, originally estimated to number 45,000 men trapped in the Bereznegovatoye- Snigirevka pocket near Nikolaev Red army tankmen, "by their fire and with their caterpillar wheels,' wiped out the remnants of the 3 divisions, the bulletin said. In their vital smash at the Ger roans' lateral communications ii the Ukraine, the Russians cap lured the rail junction of Vapny arka. 45 miles southeast of Viunit sa. the communique said. Vapny arka is on that part of the Odess line running into Zhmerinka. am is 25 miles from the Dniester rive frontier of Bessarabia. The Russians previously announced they had slashed the Odessa-Lwo\v trunk line between Tarnopol and Proskurov. Vapny- arka's fall left the Germans to the southeast but 2 secondary rail escape lines into Rumania- Its seizure represented a 28-mile exploitation of the Bug river breakthrough by Marshal Ivan S. Konev's 2nd Ukraine army. The Russians were reported on | the outskirts of Vinnitsa in trie j western Ukraine after capturing! Tyazhilov, less than 2 miles to the northeast, and the Tyushki -.rail station; 3 miles to the-south. * Gen. Rodion Y. Malinovsky's 3rd Ukraine army was credited with the capture of Nova -Odessa, 20 miles northwest of the big Black sea port of Nikolaev, and only 75 miles from the bigger base of Odessa itself. Other Russian forces are attacking the city from the east and southeast. Nikolaev is now sealed off on 3 sides. The soviet communique did not reveal the total number of Germans killed in the encirclement above Nikolaev. On Tuesday, Moscow said 10,000 of the troops had been killed and 4,000 captured. It added that hundreds of nazis. "realizing, the .hopelessness .of their situation/' surrendered in the last stages of the fight. Fierce fighting raged in the Prskurov sector near the old Polish border, the bulletin said, with the Russians warding off heavy German counter - attacks. No mention was made of the fighting at Tarnopol, where the Germans have braced against the Russian surge toward the Carpathian mountain borders of Rumania and Hungary. TROOPSLANDED BEHIND NIPPON LINE IN BURMA Maims Island Invaded in Bismarck Sea; Land Based Planes Hit Truk By RICHARD C.

Truk, Japan's mightiest base in the eastern Carolina islands, is marked for continued air assault after land-based 7th nil-force liberator bombers Wednesday night blasted airdromes, supply and munition dumps nnd naval installations without loss. Nearest and most logical American base from which the heavy bombers took off is Eniwetck atoll in the western Marshall islands. Truk was bombed Feb. 16 i.nd 17 by carrier-based planes. In the southwest Pacific, where Gen. Douglas MacArlhur celebrated his 2nd anniversary as supreme allied commander, American troops swept ashore on Manus island, largest in the Admiralty group, Wednesday and by night- all were within a half mile of nportant Lorengau airdrome. The battle-tested Americans ffered only minor casualties in e landing but met stronjr pre- ared defenses near the airdrome.

Simultaneously with announcement ot t h e second consecutive night raid on Sofia, capital of Bulgaria, it was announced officially that the RAF has sent formations of four-motored Hall- faxes into the Mediterranean theater to operate with the strategic- air force here.

Casualties were inflicted on the Germans and some prisoners were taken. Inside Cassino allied engineers played a major role, filling huge bomb craters and clearing a path through the rubble for tanks and foot soldiers. At one point it was necessary to build a 70 foot bridge lo permit tanks and other vehicles to cross a water-filled obstacle. Eighteen Germans were taken prisoner soon after the New Zealanders entered the town, it was officially announced, and two German tanks \vcre knocked out west of the town. New Zealand and Indian troops met obstinate German opposition in the hills west of Cassino but made short advances, occupying several heights not immediately identified. Outside by Avalanche, Continue With Work Ouray. Colol. (UP.)--Fifty hard- rock miners, cut off from the outside world since Monday by a snow and rock avalanche, con- Linued to work Friday in the 11.900-foot Treasury tunnel, deep in the heart of Red mountain. The men were only slightly inconvenienced by the slide, which is a half mile wide and 40 feet high in some places, near Ironton Park about 6 miles below the lun- nel mouth. In a telephone conversation-their f i n a l communication with the outside world before the wires were downed by a 2nd slide--the men told John Edgar, project engineer, they had plenty of food at the tunnel, and would continue-to work the regular 2-shifl schedule. The men are staying in a bunkhouse at the tunnel site. SWEDEN URGES FINNISH PEACE Reported to Have Delayed Reply to Reds Stockholm. (UP.) -- Sweden was reported Friday to have delayed transmission to Moscow of Finland's blutit rejection of armistice proposals pending the outcome of an l l t h hour attempt to persuade the Finns to reconsider their stand.

A certain change ot opinion k m Finnish parliament circles in the direction of a more positive attitude toward the Russian armistice terms was noticeable, especially among members of the Swedish people's and social democratic parties, Dagbladet said. The Swedish foreign office announced Thursday iiight that King Gustav and his government had intervened in the situation and informed "competent Finnish quarters"--reliably reported to be President Risto Ryti and Marshal Baron Carl Mannerheim--of their opinion on the peace Question. The Swedish demarche was believed to have appealed to Fin- laud to maintain her contact with Russia at all cost and to reconsider her rejection of the soviet armistice terms in view of modification of the original demands Though the Russian note forwarded Helsinki last week was understood to have insisted or acceptance of the original 6 terms reliable sources said SwedisV intermediaries were authorized to inform the Finns verbally tha the Soviets were willing to make major concessions.

Roosevelts Have 39th Wedding Anniversary; No Observance Held Washington. CU.R)--Friday was the 39th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt but the event was not observed with special ceremonies at the white house. Mrs. Roosevelt, it seems, was gone again. It may have been something of a problem for the president to learn the exact whereabouts of the first lady, now hopping by air over the islands of the Caribbean, but it was believed that he was able to send her an anniversary message with the assistance of the war de- p a r t m e n t .

There was no great marching of the Irish people as in happier years. Dublin was thronged, but all the pubs were closed and the olden picture of irishmen parading to the skirl of pipes and the inner l i f t of "a wee drap o' the crature'' was missing.
