PAGE EIGHT + + + The WAR TODAY + + + ,. BY DEWITT MACKENZIE V The great Red. offensive by hastcn- tng the end of the European war- sis It obviously Is doingi-ls piling up pressing political problems for the Biff Three, and one of these has to do with the turbulent Balkans where se\eral thrones are rocWng In a strong wind which blows from off thf! Russian steppes. ' Among the most urgent situations te that involving the battle of young :|Cing Peter of Yugoslavia to hang onto hls,|«yal prerogatives in the face of powerful opposition among hLs^«ubjects. Any quarrel in the Balkans is dangerous, for this cockpit of southeastern Europe long has Ufeen th^ whelping ground of far- reaching trouble, and Yugoslavia is a hot spot. Thus, a couple of days ago we saw acting Secretary of State Grew call on the rival Yugoslav factions to reach an agreement. There actually are two Yugoslav governments because of the split. There is the government headed by Marshal Tito, who takes Inspiration irom Moscow and who in fact controls Yugoslavia both militarily and politically. Then there is the so- called exile government in London, headed by Premier Subaslc, and this has been the government of King Peter tmtil the other day when he filed it, or tried to. What happened was that Subaslc, being practical minded,,got together with Tito and they agreed to form a single government under a regency, with the understanding that a plebiscite would be held after the war to decide whether the coim- try wanted to continue the monarchy or substitute some other form of government. Peter refused to accept a regency, despite strong advice to do so from British Prime Minister Churchill, and tried unsuccessfully to dismiss Subaslc and his ministers. They declined to be dismissed. Here enters Mr. Grew, and it would seem that his message may have had a quick reaction, for Peter today is reported striving to effect a compromise with Subaslc. It's said the king wants his preimer to resign I and then form another government » which will include some of the staunchest supporters of -the monarchy. However, diplomatic observers believe the king's effort would fail, and that Subaslc would proceed to Belgrade and there establish a coalition government with Tito.

Weather was so foul that the Seventh army had virtually no tactical air support. Earliei", the 7th army had withdrawn from seven to ten miles along a 20-mlle sector of the Karlsruhe comer, leaving Strasbourg jutting out at the end of an Allied salient. Associated Press correspondent Robert C. Wilson said ^he Americans were reported Inflicting "heavy losses" and had destroyed at least five tanks and 14 armored vehicles in early hours of the drive. SM New AlUed Offensive More chunks of what remains of the Ardennes salient were carved out by the American Third army, which advanced to within one to three miles of the German-Luxembourg frontier, and inside Germany Itself. Lt. Gen. George ^. Patton's troops took half a dozen towns and destroyed 12 tanks, two tank destroyers and three cannon in battles among snowdrifts up toj seven feet deep. (A Stockholm dispatch! this mom- tag quoted German military circles as saying a new Allied offensive could be expected at ai^y moment along the Roer.
