PAGE SEC + + + The WAR TODAY + + + ' r BY DEWITT MACKENZIE Today's Special: British Prime Minister Churchill told his house of commons yesterday that he and Marshal Stalin had reached an . agreement on dealing with the Bal. kans to prevent future wars, and that. President Roosevelt had been kept "constantly informed." A j;pad- er Of this column asks if this means that Messrs. Churchill and Stalin are trying to do Uncle Sam a faVor by -seeing that he doesn't get entangled in European affairs. These are days when the blood of the crystal^gazer surges hot through his veins as he views the rush of the-Red armies toward Berlin, but thli isn't a good time for prophesy beyond recording that the AUies are^ moving admirably along the sure road to victory. Vfe shaU- be wise to take a tip from Premier Churchill's remark that he couldn't attempt to "set Ikrilts to the superb and titanic evt-nts which we are now witnessing or upon their reaction in every theatre." In his opinion "the wisest and most far sighted prophets will reserve their opinion until the results are known." However, Churchill did give us a valuable pointer. The Russian drive is part of a coordinated victory plan to keep all fronts "in constant fliime until the final climax." The idea, of course, Is never to relax the big squeeze on the Germans for a moment, especially from the two main fronts apparently the original Allied plans called for simultaneous offensives by the Russians and the western Allies, and we should have seen bolh striking all- out now if Nazi Marshal Von Rund- stedt's counter-drive hadn't upset our push on the Rhlr^e. Perhaps that would have been the ideal 'situation, but time may demonstrate that the interlude provided by Rundstedt has been profitable for the Allies. Mustangs vs. Dragons At Pittsburg Tonight Tonight Coach Bill Elliott will lead Ills lola Mustangs Into the Dragon's den at Pittsburg for a bout of basket tossing with the highly touted Pittsburg five. Last week Pittsburg and the Chanute Blue Comets, undefeated so far this season, had to play an extra five minute period during which Chanute finally broke away to win 33 to 31. Pittsburg has a ,highly geared offensive which has developed increasing- scoring power wiht each tilt since ^the opening of the season. Elliott reports that his squad is in excellent condition. He expects to start the same lineup used last week, Specht and Lind, forwards, Cross, center, Leavitt and Prazell, guards. The game will start at 8 p. m., following a second team preliminary at 7 p. m. On the Alleys Industrial League Standings. W. L. Pet.

General Eisenhower presumably will hasten the launching of a major offensive, and pend- j ing; the full-fledged attack will mamtain as great pressure on the German lines as possible. We see this worklnug already in the two offensives on the western front—the British attack north of Aachen and the American Third army thrust in northern Luxemboiurg. The British, drive is to eliminate a troublesome salient which the Gerrnans long have maintained in the Allied line, and the Luxembourg action could be a local affair. How- evei-, both are testing Rundstedt's mettle and any signs of German weakness will result in an immediate swelling of the Allied pressure against him. It's particularly necessary to keep up this pressure in the west since two German armored divisions are reported by London to be en route to the eastern front from the Rhen­ ish theatre. That's grand news, for it means that the Hitlerites are indeed desperate and are being forced to emulate the old kaiser in the last war in shuttling troops back and forth between two fronts. Number 1 (Continued From Paire One) ter-street fighting progressed. The towns are within 38 miles of the great Rhine city of Dusseldorf.' Close On St. Vlth The American First army drove through wind lashed snows for substantial gains all along the curving 40-mile front contracting about St. Vlth,- last Belgian road center the Germans held in the flattened Ardennes salient. GeVman positions in Alsace were strengthened despite seventh army counterattacks. This heightened the.threat of a Nazi squeeze on Strasbourg, the Alsatian capital and political prize for both the Germans and French. • The G^mans now are west of the Rhine along 82 of its curving 114 miles from Switzerland to the Alsatian-German frontier. And it is west of the Rhine where Gen. Eisenhower and Field Marshal Von •Rimsledt both have said the war might be decided. When they started their offensive New Year's day, the Germans held 55 miles. AUIed troops hold 24 miles of the Rhine west bank from north of Strasbourg to Gertsheim, 14 miles south, plus a mile at Strasbourg itself. They hold another eight miles from Switzerland to Kembs. Number2 (Continned From Pa^ One) enemy force is believed entrenched. Right Wing JVIarks Time Capture of Urdaneta, which cleared the Nipponese from positions commanding the northern portion of the Manlla-Baguio highway, will enable the Sixth army's right wing to start rolling southward again after 48 hours of marking time waiting for tne left wing to catch up.

John Q. Public Beginning, to Feel Results of Stiff Ndzi Resistance By JAMES MARLOW Waslilngton. Jan. 19. (AP)—The Germans'resistance—and their counter-ofifensive—have forced a swarm of .changes on the Aiherican home front. They dyj into everyone's life, in one way 'or another: food, fuel, clothing, -buslne-s-s. And a lot of men, who: mav have thought it never woiild hapiien to them, are army-bouud. You may not have noticed thr changes, as they piled up piece by piece, but'here are some of the big ones: Food is as tight now as at any time in the war.' Only 35 per cent of the meat was rationed ' before Christma-v,but now 85 per-cent of it is back on the list. So are major canned vegetables. Instead qf more and more civilian production of consumer goods, the War Prodijction Board (WPB) has ordered no more to be produced in the next three months than was produced In 1944's last three months. There have been innumerable cases^where manufacturers were told WTB they could not step up scheduled- output of things ranging from shotgun shells to metal casket";. Plans for building • homes—just home.s that, peoole wanted—have been almrat entirely shelved and buildind is back whore it was: The only homftji to be built are those for war workers. All worsted yarns have been iroz- en for "militarv use until June I. 60 per cent of the woolen yarn is ex- nected to. ; be frozen, and manufacturers of overcoats have been told to mrike no' more for civilians until arm\*; orders are filled. The supnly of passenger car tires —supposed^', to have reached eieht million in; the first three months of 194.5—ha.s been cut to five million, a drop of one million from 1944's ;T ]uarter. Fuel supolies have been cut. Civilians hav° been asked to keep the temperature in ,their homes at no hleher than 68 degrees, and advertising signs' artd display windows have been ordered "browned out" to save fuel starting Feb. 1. And the whip cracked over men and manpower: Draft bo?irds had been takine I only men und^:r 26. Now they're 'sweeping Into |;iie group 26 to 30. They'll take men up to 38 who don't get into essential work. ~ Men lip to 38 who leave essential work without draft board permis- fSion will be talfen, too. Even 4-Fs who are deferred in essential work and leave without board approval will be : drafted, selective service says. And draft boards have been told to hunt for deferred farmers who are under 26 because the army wants young mfen. A new list o£ essential and critical activities hkh been prepared for i draft boards so' they can comb ' through their re^gistrants and send i into th^ army those who are least essential in e&ential or critical worlf. The War Manpower Commission, I to spread out ,the thinning man- I power supply for jobs needing it most, has slapped employment ceilings on about 200 different areas. The WPB, which started a program called "Spot authorization," has virtually Rut it back on the I shelf. This plan would have permitted plants—which could show they had men arid machines not needed in j the war—to tyirn to work they j wished ;With m^iterial allocated to them by the government. And—excursldn trains have l)een banned, the government has asked an end to conventions, and race horse racing was stopped. The j tracks were bljimed for absenteeism of war wctkers, besides using up manpower, i, transportation and telephone and telegraph facilities. FoulPlay ^in Fitchburg Following up this column's recent " figure^ on basketball fouls, John .'Connelly, sports editor of the Fitchburg,; Mass., Sentinel reports that 117 fouls were called in an industrial league triple header there, 47 In one- j^ame, with five different bfficiali tooting the whistles ...

His three games were 231, 253, and 214. Billbe 's longest string of strikes was only five, but he had no misses and only one split in the tliree games. The one split he had he made. "I'll admit I had a little luck," Billbe said today. "I had a few strikes on the sloppy side." Then as an afterthought, "aut by golly I got cheated out of some, too!" Billbe is president of the bowling league this year, and one of the most consistent of all league players His current average of 179, which will be raised two or thtee points by his 700 score last night, is only exceeded by Hart. Upton, Endsley, and Lenski who have 186, 186, 183, and 180 respectively. The previous high 30 frames this year were bowled by Lenski only last Monday night, 662. Two years ago. the high 30 score was bowled by Childress the first night of the s^eason, 679. Cliff La.sater was also "hot" last night, bowling 645 for his high 30 of the .season. Johnny Revolta Out in Front At Tucson Tucson, Ariz., Jan. 19. lAP)—The red hot putter of Johnny Revolta waved a danger signal for favorites Byron Nelson, Toledo, Ohio, and Sam Snead, Hot Springs, Va.. at the start today of the $5,000 Tucson Golf Open. The cury-haired Evanston. 111., pro veteran whipped over the 18- hole El Rio (the river> country cluD course yesterday with a 65 five under part to siiare in the pro-amateur prize. Johnny's putter, which becomes a magic wand on occasion, worked to perfection as he sank seven putts of more than 10 feet. ••He was closely pressed for top honors by a trio of play-for-pay golfers who shot 66. They were Denny Schute, Akron, Ohla, veteran, and two Detroiters, Sam Byrd and Claude Harmon. Snead, leading money winner of the current winter tour, posted a 67. Nelson, last year's top golfer, netted a 69 while his golfing pal, Harold (Jug) McSpaden, Sanford, Me., was practically lost in the "al.?n rans" with a 72—two over par.
