COLGATES TOOTH POWDER 25c, 40c sTOl fvy.4 By DEWITT MACKENZIE The Balkans are boiling with reports that Germany Is seeking a separate peace with Russia, end that Moscow Is considering the Idea. These and other recent stories along a similar line undoubtedly were Inspired by Berlin.

They perhaps were put out partly as feelers, but certainly with th hope of creating distrust among the Allies. Along with this. Hitler has ordered his commanders to hold a blood wall" across northern Italy and to defend Fortress Europe to the last drop of blood." A German commentator hands out the word that this Is a "guarantee that the Nazi armlea In Fortress Europe will be able to hold their positlone many years, if necessary, until the Allies are convinced the war la futile. INTENT OBVIOUS The Intent of this is obvious to implant in the minds of the Allies the thought that, after all, It might be better to make peace now than to let the war drag on Interminably. There no doubt the Fuehrer knows he's beaten and wants to get out of the war on th beat terms possible, though Berlin noisily continued to deny It has any Idea of surrender.

Well, would Russia make a separate peace with Germany? All the indications thus far have been that she has no Intention whatsoever of doing ao. However, one doesnt need a telescope to see that, with one of the greatest crisis of tha war now being staged along tha Dnieper, military developments might alter Russias mind, Moscows call for the western allies to open a second front In France has been repeated almost dully as the German retreat has continued. The Russians have kept Insisting that the appointed hour for that front was at hand while Hitler was on the defensive. They have said they needed this aid because of the strain they were under. Continued Inability to open that front might result In the Bovlet taking independent action as regards Germany.

This and other military and political situations continue to empha- size the urgency of the forthcoming AS THE BRITISH EIGHTH ARMY swept up the east and west coasts of Italy for a Junction with the U.S. Fifth Army, these Canadians conferred on their shortest route to the Naples fighting zone.

Mayor Robert EL Riley of Portland, her on a goodwill tour as the guest of the British Ministry of Information, told a press conference today that 30 per cent of all naval and merchant ship built for the United State Government during the war were produced In Portland area which didn't turn out a single ship between the close of th last war and th atari of the present war.

Continuing Nazis FROM PAGE ONE and rebuild his air force from bomber to fighter crew, hs must also switch airfield and Industry facilities. HI present production must Increasingly be turned over to night fighter squadrons and this means steadily decreasing facilities for bomber production and other types of offensive aircraft. Type of aircraft euch as the Junkers and Dorniers which might he used a bomber have been grabbed off for the fighter arm. What make It especially difficult foe Goerlng I the fact that his aircraft factories are spread far and wide over Germany and it dominated empire, NEEDS NEW DEFENCES Wiener Neuatadt and Vienna both have important Messersrhmltt plnnts and other factories Jam southern Germany and with the Balkans becoming target areas for the Alllea moving In from the south he must create nAv airfields for the defence of these factories and put up new ground defences. His Luftwaffe must be changed from a bomber force to ptovlde the all Important night fighter force.

Much of this he may have to build from tho bottom up seeking perhaps 30,000 control personnel alone and the building of thla force must be governed by the speed with which these men can be picked and trained. It la a great task changing men from one role to another In the same way that changing factories from bomber to fighter production la a major undertaking.

Rev. Horace West, new pastor of First Baptist Church, told the congregation at the Sunday afternoon service held in St. Andrews Presbyterian Church.

For this reason It was often necessary to use pictorial language when writing or epeaklng of things spiritual, he said. The new pastor, who cornea to Saskatoon from Beulah 'Baptist Church, Winnipeg, said that the Saviour realized the inadequacy of tha human language, and thie accounted for Hie us of many parables and metaphors. While the parables and metaphors might not convey tha Intended message to everyone. It had been His plan and hope that soma might find fruit In the hearts and minds of his listeners, ha said. The speaker had taken ae his text, "Except a man be born again, he cannot hope to see the Kingdom of God.

He explained that this did not mean that man would be born again In tha physical sense. Similarly, hs said, the parable of the loaves and fishes had been used to emphasize man's qeed In depending on God. Th speaker referred to other well-known parables and metaphors which had been used because "we lack tbe language to say what we feel." A letter from Rev. A. G.

Sinclair former pastor of First Baptist Church, was read to th congregation by E. H. Crimp exhorting them to give the same unstinted co-operation to the new pastor as had been given to him. vm PILES eased fast. Cracking of dried parts, soreness and bleeding also checked.
