United Press War Cor- tjespondent Virgil Pinkley says Paris will enable the A'.lies to command a vast network of railroad..?,. fine highways, rivers, can- alls'.anil airports. "And he says it will surely speed t"he liberation of all Franco. .And Pinkley makes this significant statement: "I can .state on unimpeachable authority that the battli!. of France is near its end. The climactic military .strokes which will carry the AliJe<i armored farces crushing 1 to the border of Germany arc in the making." -"Southeast of Paris, hard hitting American tank columns plunged toward the key railroad hub of Troyes—only 130 miles from the German frontier. What General Pulton's forces are trying to do is close the last direct escape route for -all the Nazi armies in southern Franco and so far they are making impressive headway. Actually, Pattons columns are less than a ciay'.s ride from Germany. In southern France, the Americans are • further riddling" the German rail system. At last reports 'from Allied headquarters the Americans entered the city of Grenoble, in the French Alps only 58-'miles southeast of Lyons. Bui a 1 'correspondent (for C-B-S) says Grenoble has been captured. That mean's an advance of 140 miles in- lan'd 'for our army in lfce north. On" the' 1 Mediterarncun coast, the FVeiich—baUling the Germans inside" the Toulon naval base—now are"'one-half mile from the city's arsenal. To the west, France's second largest city — Marseilles — is virtually encircled. .,Above Marseilles, to the northwest, the British radio now says American advanced units are reported, at the tratcs of Avignon— a'.' vital' communications center on the IH-hone river. ""There 'is no Allied confirmation of this, nor of two other reports: That French patriot forces have taken the ancient fortress of Per- plgrmn near the Spanish frontier: that American and French troops have ^ando-d in southwestern France near Bordeaux on the bay of Biscay. ! In the north — Amcricar., Canadian and British armies are closing 1 in on the kilil for the remnants of the Nazi seventh army along the Seine. Some 93.000 Nazi troo-ps arc being hammered from the-air in their retreat. And steady Allied advances are reducing the pocket by the hour. The Americans arc plunging toward the channel coast along the Seine river. The Canadians, driving eastward toward the mouth of tho Seine, arc reported by the British 'radio' to be six miles from their objective and within sight of the big port>city of Le Havre. '.•As..the Allies won more and more territory in France, the British . radio relayed a Swedish dispatch, .saying that Hitler has fired KisMComrnander. Field Marsal von Kluge." ,-.'.. Elsewhere on the European bat- tlcfrouts —i the Berlin radio says carrier based Allied planes today attacked unidentified targets in Norway, official secret ballot reaches the person-in the service. ' '. Warden, Broprry was emphatic today'in stating that the move is entirely non-political, i« of benefit to both parties, and that the desire of the borough government is mat each of the eligible sons an? daughters of Naugatuck, now In the service, be given every aid and opportunity to vote in the election this fall, a small enough token In view of the sacrifices many of them are making, the "Warden stated. Freedom of chojcc and expression is a basis of the war, the borough head declared. Political leaders here indicated that 'with approximately 2,000 names on Naugatuck's Honor Roll, that close to 1,800 voters from lown arc now In the service. It is understood that only 800 servicemen's ballots have been compiled to date here. Town Clerk St. John stated today that he estimates that the names of service people must be filed with either himself or the registrars by September IS, if the applications and ballots are to be sent overseas and returned in time for election which is Tuesday, Nov. Naugatuck's campaign to aid servicemen in the exercise of their franchise is in keeping with like efforts now under way. in many towns and citica in Connecticut as well as other parts of the country- St. Francis' Picnic Plans Nearly Set (Continued from Page 1) Andrew Daly, John Fitzgerald, John Wrinn, and Mac Foley.
