PAGE SIX + + + The WAR TODAY + + + > BY DEWITT MACKENZIE , jGennany's position In the path of the avalanche hourly becomes more grim. Muscovite forces have bludgeoned their way well into German Industrial Silesia on the road to proud Breslau, important railway center and next to Berlin the greatest city In Prussia. They've stormed into East Prussia and captured Tannenberg, scene of Russia's greatest defeat in' the last war and Valhalla of the Prussian miUtarism which the Allies have vowed to destroy as the curse of Eiu-ope. The Bed wnr niBchlne is driving the Hitlerites before It across the frozen plains of Poland towards the borders of the Reich. WEEK'S BOWLINO SCHEDVUE "Hov long can the Germans hold out against this terrific offensive— «n onslaught unprecedented in history for weight and intensity? That certainly is a legitimate question, especially since even the Hitlerites apre franlt to admit that the Euro- ^jjean ^war has entered its decisive stage.; The only point in doubt lis hp.w long the Reich can hold out. In trying to fl.id an answer we mustpt forget certain basic facts which we long have known about German purposes and the strategj- they Intended to employ in an. effort to achieve those purposes. Emphatically we shouldn't jump to the con- cltmion—as many did when the NBJSB^ began their great retreat from Normandy—that the war will be over In a few days. Of course, the conflict could end quickly If German morale should break, or the Hitlerites should decide that surrender was preferable to Invasion by the Russians whom they feai. However, we have no right to expect such a collapse, and barring this contingency there's hard fighting ahead. Corameroial Lescoe, Jaa 22 7:00 p. m.—Elks Club vs. Highland Nursery.

The tirrlble Nazi defeat at Stalingrad; e4rly in 1943 was the turning point of the war. The Germans realized then that their chances of wlimlng ^ere' mighty slim, and surely they knew their goose was coolced after they lost their ship on the Mediterranean through their disasters hi Africa and Italy. Hitler then let the world know What his strategy was. He would hang onto the occupied countries and,bleed them so long as possible. Finally he woxild retire inside hid 6wn fortified frontiers of Germany and fight it out. W;fi knew all this, and yet when the Russians hi their 1943-4 offensives drove the Nazis clear back to the Vistula with awful losses, many folk concluded that Germany was befiten. Then when the Hitlerite retjreat began after D-day there was another flood of Allied over- optimism. People forgot that Ger' man strategy called for this retreat and that they would stand on their own frontiers. We saw them make their stand and we saw Marshal Von Rundstedt stage a fonnidable counter-offensive. The once over-optimistic became pessimistic aid cried out that the Germans had been concealing strength. • _Now we have the great Russian drive, and for the first time there's an Allied army in the west to create a terrific vise. The Germans have abandoned their Vistula line and are racing for their frontier defenses.

We've known that for agesJ We Just forget it in the flush of victory. Whether the Nazis will be able to jnake a .strong stand on the Oder remains to be :'een, but that's their intention and we must be prejjared for hard fighting. They will be bat- tlhig on their own threshold. Everything will be at stake. We must expect them to make a desperate and •even suicidal stand.

First Army, Jan. 21 (delayed) (AP)—The United States army, supposed to be the best dressed and the best equipped in the world, has taken a back seat on both counts along the Western Front. It Is still the world's fightingest army but an official fumble somewhere along the line has denied It necessities for a, rigorous campaign to the snow and ice from Arnhem to the Belfort Gap. The troops themselves by high, wide and handsome improvising are keeping warm and camouflaged. But the effect in some cases has been a tetterdftnalion getup rivaling Washington's army at Valley Forge. Lack of white snowsuits—without which you make a perfect target— wa.s made up for in various ways with results wondrous to behold.

He lived with a family there for four months and then went into the mountains where he heard 80 Americans were living in a camp. But when he reached the camp he found most of the food was gone. So he roamed the hills and then returned to the vlllagf and lived for another year to the lowlands.
