SATURDAY EVENING. JANUARY 13. 1945. Yanks Continue to Cut Bulge WESTERN FRONT tnthe WO:RLD of SPORTS Yanks continue cutdown of Ardennes bulge. Dotted line shows extent of Nazi push; solid line is present front.—(NEA Telephoto.) Number2 (Continned Froin Page One) of France's quota of fighting men. Moreover, France has been short of equipment for those troops she could raise, and hasn't even had sufficient arms for training. Also her facilities for manufacture are limited. Despite these handicaps. General De Oaulle has flung an eager force into the flaming western battle front, and is raported planning to add 1,800,000 to the army, making a total of more than 2,000,000. least part of the equipment problem has been solved. President Roosevelt reported In his recent message to congress that he was glad to say 'Vie are now about to equip new French forces with the most modern v.eapbns for combat duty," and this ^(^s now been Implemented by the huge new production program announced yesterday. De Oaulle, by word and action, gives the impression ot being imbued with the idea that Frenchmen must undergo trial by combat in order to Impart full strength to the spirit of the new Prance. The country must be delivered by Its own men, Insofar as they are able to achieve the task. The story of little Belgium, with her pre-war population of some 8,000,000, Is similar, though the Germans stripped the country. Hitler apparently had the Idea of keeping Ptance a prosperous vassal staie, but Belgium didn't fare so well. Tlie Nazis are said to have carried away much of Belgium's machinery. They even took away the wooden pit- props from the coal mines, so that mining has been given a body blow, and the couptry Is suffering from lack of heat, electricity and transport.^ However, while Germany is holding about 575.000 Belgians—war prisoners and slaves—Belgium has .some 35,000 soUders fighting on the western front, and others are training In England. She wants to put more men under arms—but lacks the .srms. That's the story of Prance and Belgium as I get it. Numbers (Continued From FOfe One) low that damned thing. There's hole in the back of his neck." Three-Way Tie For Top Spot At Phoenix Phoenix, Ariz., Jan. 13. (AP)— Three pro golf stars were In a first place tie today at the start of the .second round of the $5,000 Phoenix open after favored Sam Snead spent most of yesterday playing unorthodox shorts from around trees and out of traps. BjTon Nelson .Toledo, Ohio, Herman Barron, White Plains, N. Y., and Bob Hamilton, Chicago, were deadlocked at 68, three under par for the flat, multi-trapped Phoenix Country club course. The golfers play 18 holes today and will finish the 72 hole event tomorrow with 36 holes. Snead, Hot Springs, Va., pro leading the current winter tour, came in with a 69. Loquacious Sammy amused a large gallery by quipping about his bad breaks. , Typical of Sam's trouble yesterday was the 550-yard seventh hole where he took a six, one over par. His drive landed behind a tree, forcing him to play it out left handed. The ball hooked into another tree from where he battered it into a sand trap. His explosion shot landed a foot from the cup. The surprise yesterday was Mrs. George Zaharlas, the former Babe Dldrickson of Los Angeles, who took 77 after posting a remarkable 67 on the previous day. Big Paul SURPRISE Kansas City, Mo., Jan. 13. (APJ— The container shortage that faces food processors these days resulted In momentary fright for a housewife. I'reparlng a snack for friends, she started to open a cardboard container labeled "chow mein noodles." The label fell off to reveal the name of a popular dog food. With no substitute available, the housewife muttered as she pried off the Ud. She sampled the contents warily and found they were noodles. CLEAN SWEEP North Platte, Neb., Jan. 13. (AP) E\'en the street sweepings of this city help support the servicemen's canteen. Street department em­ ployes havo donated cliange swept up in the streets as well as returns from sale of swept up radiator capi, hub caps, gasoline tank caps and bottles to the support of the canteen. WILL BE "HAS-BEENO" The term Mikado Is used by foreigners to designate the emperor of Japan, but not by the Japanese themselves. Their word is "Tenno." Amid all the other troubles of war, T/5 Julius Tolney of Buffalo, N. Y., a decidedly lu-ban center, got caught in a situation the other night where he had to act as midwife for a cow. Staff Sergeant Henry W. Schulze is looking for relatives—but with blood in his eye. (His parents, who live in Brenham, *rexas, were both born in Germany.) Henry built a fancy layout for the mess over which he presided in the Siegfried line. He had a shack built from fallen trees, a jeep shed and a trailer shed, all partly underground and snugly protected. Now the Germans have come back and the sergeant is burning. "By golly, when I think of the kbor we put out to make those quarters I If I ever find a Heinle, even If he's named Schulze, 111 sure jnake It tough for him." NOT ON THE PROGRAM ; Chicago, Jan. 1. (AP)—Pans at last night's Coliseum boxing show got a bit of extra entertainment after Johnny Flanagan, Chicago heavyweight, knocked out Dave Mason of Cleveland in the first round of a scheduled six rounder. Two women, identified as relatives of Mason, climbed: onto the ring apron and verbally belabored Flanagan for his achievement, his seventh straight victory. Before leaving they swimg their purses at athletic commission inspectors and ushers who attempted to eject them. Flanagan appeared embarrassed by the incident but the fans roared. LONG JUMP Kharokhonov, young Russian parachute jumper, balled out at 40,813 feet and fell more than seven miles before opening his parachute. Thanks to this new sculpture by Carol Barnes, visitors to Sequoia National Park. California, wiU get a good idea of the appearance of Paul Bunyan, legendary woodsmen's hero, who, fable says, roamed the western forests with Babe, his Blue Ox. Ranger Sam Puscateri is dwarfed by the huge statue, which is carved out of a single giant seauoia tree trunk. ALL IN Harlingen, Tex., Jan. 13. (AP)-^ The entire student body of Sodville high school in San Patricio cotmty was on hand for its team's appearance in the semi-finals of the fourteenth annual Laferia lettermen's basketball toutnament. The student body consists of seven boys—all on the team—and two gh-ls. HOME MADE Chalk Buttes, Mont., Jan. 13. (AP) Jim Keith sports a nifty home-made pair of overalls of plaid bed ticking. A search of a half-dozen communities and several mall order houses failed to turn up a pair of ordinary work overalls, he said, so Mrs. Keith went to work with tliread and needle and made her husband one of Montana's best dressed sheep herders.

(AP)—The post-war football player certainly won't be encumbered by heavy equipment. ere is the dope, as put out by equipment salesmen at the National Collegiate Athletic association convention: The post-war uniform will consist of Nylon pants and probably a Nylon thread sWrt. All of the padding will be plastic instead of fiber, and It WIU be much lighter than the equipment now used. The Nylon pants won't soak up water as rapidly as those used now. They'U be sUcker and that much harder \o hold.

Bud Nelson plays base. Red Watklns the guitar, and Glen Ferguson the fiddle! This musical unit boasts three vocal soloists, a duet and two different trios. • • • , ONE OF THE REASONS that KMBC's talent staff makes friends is Its eagerness to live up to Its responsibilities as entertainers — In other words, the show must go on! —viz., this story about Millie and Sue. Although It was Christmas, and there was plenty of excuse to be late for the Dlnnerbell Round-up, the two girls skidded up the high- day from Cross Timbers to the first Kansas City carllne, abandoned their auto for a safer and surer conveyance—arriving In KMBC studios on time and ready for a song. • e • — HOLY SMOKES!

Harry James his Number 1 (CdnUnned From Page One) gon and at least another six in the harbor of Qul-Nhon, 250 mites t°6 the northeast. The fact a light cruiser was the biggest warship so far bagged indicates Japan is so hard hit in the higher categories that her admirals are forced to send a boy to do a man's job. Soper-Battleship Sunk Admiral Nlmltz yesterday confirmed the sinking of Japan's 45,000- ton superbattleship, the Musashi. He said conclusive evidence shows she "blew up and sank as the result ot damage Inflicted on her by aircraft attacks" last October 24 during the lOLA, KANSAS second'lji^tle of the Philippines sea. The Musashi and a slater ship, the Yamato, damaged In the same action, were the two most powerful, battleships in the Japanese fleet. , Reports to date on the fleet pene^ tration to waters off Indo-Chirui^ also are' remarkable for the light enemy land-based opposition listed. lAnd-based air power, when able to be unleashed in continuous waves, poses a menace to an attacking, fleet.
