Prominent Naugatuck Residents Who Will Have Feature Parts In "Three Star" Program Sunday Afternoon At The U. S. Rubber Co. Naugatiick's Cliinf IC.xi-ciitivc U. S. lluhhur Co. Factory Manager REV. EDWAK.D U. HANCE Pastor of Congregational Cliurch (By United Press) American and French troops of the seventh army have rammed their way into the Eelfort Gap, the gateway to southwestern Germany. The seventh army struck from the west and north in a new effort to crumble the Nazi defenses oarrinjf the passageway. The Americans spearing in from tho west — cracked the outer fortifications and captured a town only ten miles from Belfort. Other American and French columns by-passed a strongrpoint l-l miles north of the fortress city. Ai the Americans and Frenchmen rolled ahead through the Vos- ges mountains, they encountered bitter X.ozi resistance — and thick mud .and .SJIO.T.V-.J Nevertheless,, they, are moving deeper through the enemy defenses. The main German fortifications lie in a semi-circle extending about sevon miles north, west and southwest of Belfort. Right now the seventh army is 40 to 50 miles from the Rhine river, and beyond that barrier, is the great Black Forest of southwestern Germany. Meanwhile, the American third army to the north also is scoring notable successes against the Nazi defenders in the Moselle valley of France. East of Xancy, General Patton's army destroyed at least S2 tanks in a forest battle that cut the Germans to ribbons. The victory is the biggest one- do y triumph for General Patlon of the whole campaign in France. The Americans advanced one to three miles through the. Par-, roy forest but front dispatches say the breakthrough so far, is only on a local scale. Northwest of the forest, other Americans recaptured the disputed junction of Chatcau-Salins. And above that town, still other third army forces arc massing against the chain of defenses that cover the western and northern approaches to Mctz. So:ne gains have boon made. As for the battle in Holland— British second army posiiionn arc being strengthened and expanded in the face of almost continuous enemy counter attacks. General Dcmpsoy's troops are preparing for a big push across tho Rhino and Mouse rivers into Germany. They've struck out north- : east of Nijm'fegen for the main fork of the Rhine, eight miles away. The Germans, in turn, struck back across the Rhine southeast or Nij- (Conlinued on Page 8) Pnxtor of St. Hedwlg's Church President of Local 45, United , Ruhher Workers of America ROBERT E. LOWEU.
