Ono of the men whoi made it that in Furope is former Capt. Phillip J. Sinnott, Jr., of San Francisco liaison bfficer with the battle-hap- ply sixty-ninth infantry division. He is an old friend from war days who wants to see what the peace hns come to. Tho 69th division was an outfit hew to battle which stumbled to immortal glory by sealing the capture of Leipzig and contacting the Russian army vanguard In an unforgettable meeting which ended the European phase of world war two along the River Elbe. The taking of Leipzig 26 months ago was a dubious military adventure. The Second Infantry Division —a combat-wise outfit—was pushing from the west, but the 69th de cided that the honor of capturing this German stronghold must come to it. So the division created a task force of some sixteen tanks and 185 '.doughboys and sent them in to clean out Nazi resistance and to take the fortified City Hall. Only 65 doughboys were still in lighting condition when tho task force finished battering in the City Hall fortress, where the poison-killed corpses of the Burgomeister and hlfi ftSSfttftnfr-^S well &S titit tftfl and d«#fttf»-4«rt tester.* to the dramatic decline tif the Nad ds- KftUSC * It was a great charge serves to live in Arfterteatii history— a chains against the. test concentration of German antiaircraft guns find smAll arms tire still existing in Western Eufbpe, "Everybody was trying tp.Mltno into his helmet," recalled Capi Sinnott. So we were. This blood-won territory was subsequently yielded up to Russian control under a previous grand-scale military agreement that still exists. Americans won the territory undet lire arid gave it up to Russians who took it over without lo'ss 6f life or military struggle. The Russians fere still there. Now 26-year-old Sinnott, his rank forsaken, is shipping as a yeXHh&n on a ship leaving for Japan to pick up German war prisoners . destined for return to their fatherland.

Casey's report showed that the _^, 300 and 400 blocks of N. Nelson; the 200 block of S. Ballard; and the 400 block of W. Browning arc fully paid and ready to be worked on. Other blocks included in the program, but being held up for lack of payment by property owners at present arc: the 100 and 200 blocks, W. Tyng; 100 and 200 blocks, N. Purviance; thp 500 block. N. Nelson; 700 and 800 blocks, W. Kingsmill^ 100 block, W. Pennsylvania; 100 ana 200 blocks, S. Gillespie- Several of these are being held up for the lack of only one. two or three property owners who have refused to go along with the city. In some instances, Casey said, promises to pay have been made in good faith but for some reason or other the payments have not been made. The remainder of the discussion on the paving is being carried over into this afternoon's session of the Commission. Tho Commission approved the cooperation with the Southwestern Public Service Company for extended lighting in and around Central Park in accordance with terms of the utility company's franchise with the city.' The nrn'eet will be the installation of a Whitewav system surround* in« the nark grounds. This installation will cost tho city 'nothing for trm light .ifpndarris, underground rubles and Rlobf". The company will nl?o be responsible for the mainte- nancfi of bulbs and globes on the standards. Fourteen standards will surround the park. However, the citv will have to nav for UIR equipment to ho installed inside the rark grounds cinqjpHns; of nin« WhUeway standards. The cost of lighting UD the inside of the park will be $1,690. The move came after a report from Casey tating that a stranger had picked p three teen-age girls several nights fto at the darkened park, and forced hem to show him the high school 'here he attempted to further force hem into the school's basement. Casey also said that several bums lave been using the park as sleeping ouarters. On these grounds, and the fact that citizens would like to ise the park at night, the Commission gave Matthews the green light to go ahead with the project. In a matter of minutes the Commission, later, approved the layout of the Sone-McCoy subdivision providing for four business and residence lots on a ten-acre plot of ground situated on the Borger Highway at the corner of Alcock and North Stimner Sts.
