(API- Springfield's canine automobile license eater was in the city's dog- hoiLse today, his numbers game apparently ended. The pup was the object of a search after several motorists complained their license plates—made of soybean products—had been eaten by a dog. Yesterday the dog was caught In the act of chewing off the 1944 plates of a parked car. None of the complainants, however, had 1945 tags, also built of soybean products and which legally should have been on cars since Jan. 1. Typical of the resourceful type of soldier who stopped the German drive is Corp. Charles R. Urbanus, who foug^ht for three and one-half days without sleep^both as a tank­ man and: as an infantryman. Urbanus. Plymouth. Pa., is a tank gunner r After his tank was knocked apart, he^grabbed a rifle and helped the douglaboys at a nearby,point to hold off. the attacicing enemy for 36 hours. "He go$ several Jerries," said one of his ngw-found buddies. Then yrbanus met a tank crew that had lost its gtmner, and for two more days he fought from their tank; ? "I just; worked up to the point where I; didn't want to quit," he said. Sgt. Eldest O. Padgett of Johnston, S. <5, a tank commander, had Bees eat 20 pounds of honey in making one pound of wax.

Carrying telephone, he crawled from' his OT^TI lines and slowly worked forward tow.<ird the Nazi positions. He finally reached a spot where he could see 12 German tanks and a l>attalton of infantry deploy­ ing for an attack. Coolly he waited until the Germans were within 50 yarlds of where he lay, then called for'every artillery shell that could be laid on the spot. When the dust of .the concentrated barrage settled, four of ih3 German tanks were afire and the ground was littered with dead Germans. "The rest of them are going the ether way,"' the bold sergeant reported over the telephone. STJbETCHING IT New York. J&n. 12.

WILLIAJMS Everything expended on the 'War Fronts means just that much leSs for the Home Front, and the promise of 1945 is that combat expenditures, some of which are pictured above, will reach hitherto unimagined totals. CASUALTIES: Running at the rate of 1,500,000 a year, are expected to increase as war's tempo speeds up. AMMUNITION: More than two tons of ammimition are fired every minute of every day at the Gei-mans alone, with rate of fire increasing. TIRES: Life-span of tires in combat is often measured in minutes. As supply lines lengthen, tire requirements will increase. GASOLINE: Combat reverses, resulting in loss of gas dumps, like that in photo; ever- increasing mechanized strength and growing air forces, including such gas eaters as B-298, the huge new B-32S and other giants will use gas in unprecedented quantities. MECHANIZED EQUIPMENT: Tanks, trucks, jeeps, ducks, tank destroyers, motorized artillery and other equipment are highly expendable, as photo of Germans advancing past burning U. S. half-track indicates. PLANES: As enemy's defenses tighten up, plane replacements will be increeset). THIBTV YEAR.S TOO SOOM OUR BOARDING HOUSE with . . .
