Everybody seems prosperous and well fed and believe it or not. most of them know a smattering of English which of course makes all the difference in the world. We also had another very interesting thing to happen.

It'.s no idle rumor I'll euarantee you. They've been too to us now for a week and whoever said the Luftwaffe was done for has never been in Luxembourg the last couple of nights. Hope we get them out of here pronto—of course, according to mv eood friends. I snored throufh the worst raid of them all last nieht .so can't say I'm losing a lot of sleep so far. Still it's not the mast comforting feeling in the world to have those Bosche overhead. When the war Ls over, if you want to take a real trip, take it to Luxembourg.

Breslau, which sprawls astride the Oder, is the most important communications center of that part of the Reich, and it's the key positjlon —the anchor—in the right flank of the line upon which the Nazis are depending to halt the rush 6f the Red army. It's fall would be a major disaster for the defenders. Word from Moscow is that all direct communications with the city have been cut, which would indicate that it has been virtually isolated. Thus far we haven't had an answer to the hotly debated question of whether the Germans will be able to make a fight of it along the level valley of the winding Oder. This is their determination, of course, but they haven't paused in their retreat for a big-scale fight. That's a highly significant point. We shouldn't overlook that in running away the Hitlerites may have ensured their ability to fight another day. Had they tried to dispute the strong points in the Polish plain with the mighty force which Russia was hurling at them, they "certainly would have courted disaster. The Red army, flushed with victory and its own vast strength, would have torn them to ribbons. Then there's another aspect to this thought. Both sides undoubtedl.v are breathing a bit hard after the long, swift cliargp across the winter bound fields of Poland. This is calculated to yive the Nazis some advantage, mice they are tumbling into their prepared line for defense, while the Riissians may .scon want to slow up for a slight breather, especially since their communications are now greatly extended. Idtbe WORLD of SPORTS New Orleans, .Jan. 26. (AP)—The 35,000,000 ducks Hhat whiter In the marshlands near; the mouth of the Mississippi didn'f, arrive. Sportsmen complained. The state sent out searching parties. A U. S. department of interior expert covered the area bj^^ plane. No ducks. The hunting se'^n closed January 20. Now the air is full of them. "The birds just staged a strategi­ cal withdrawal tor the duration of the himtlng season," explained a conservation department official. New York, Jan. 26. (AP)—Leonard Wiseman, commander of the Kings County American Lrcglon, yesterday said the'Legion's executive committee has voted to appoint a permanent comnjittee to carry on negotiations, but not to make any financial conmiitments, toward purchasing the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball, club. Wiseman said the 271 posts in Kings ctjunty are defmitely Interested in pyirchaslng stock in the club. Syndicate Buys New York Yankees New York, Jan. 26. (AP)—The New York Yankees, world's richest baseball club, have been sold to a syndicate made up of Col. Larry MacPhall, Capt. Dan Topping and Del Webb, Phoenix, Ariz., contractor. The deal, rumored since last August, was confirmed by Robert A. Becker, a business associate of Webb's in Phoenix who said that "Mr. Webb telephoned me this mornhig to transfer .some money to him there to facilitate his part of the transaction." Lovesick Whale ''Nuzzles'* Sub Seattle. Jan. 25 (AP)—Wlien the I chroniclers war complete their final volume thev shouldn't forget to add a line about the U. S. submarine service and the lovesick whale. Security regulations prevented to- dav the discussion by Lt. Gilson Rohrback of the time he spent at sea in the subs but, the security code savs nothing about being "nuzzled" by a love-making giant i beneath the sea, and Rohrback, at home on leave, is willing, even anxious, to talk about his "strangest experience." "We first saw this whale when we surfaced," he explained. He was swinuning around and around, spouting and cutting all sorts of capers- making a regular showoff of himself. "We couldn't figure out what it was all about at first. When we submerged, we could hear him on our .sounding device coming closer and closer and making funny noises. "Then we decided the whale was making love to us. He'd come right up alongside and affectionately nuzzle the ship. "This went on for days and days before the whale was finally disillusioned and gave it up for a bad job. "But it really was a noble experiment." A mightv onslaught from the west, while the Germans are trying to get set on their eastern front, would be calculated to put unbearable pressure on them. Berlin, w'th a weather eye on thi.s, says that General Eisenhower Is preparing for a fresh assault and that the attack is imminent. Well, we know that the Allied commander has been getting ready for an attack, and it could come soon, Jiidg- :ng by his activities. Both the British and the Americaas on the northern flank of the Allied front liave been improving their positions and getting set to launch an offensive. Ask Early War Contracts To Cure Production Lag Wa.shington, Jan. 26. (AP)—To cure production lags caused by tardy delivery of parts to war plants, the War Production Board has asked the armed sei-vices to make contracts at once for the full year ahead. The move reflects Chairman J. A. Krug's belief that armanent policy should figure on European hostilities running into 1946. Some "serious delays" have threatened, said his memorandum to the army, navy and maritime commission, because the government and prime contractors, in recent months of miUtary optimism, failed to order far enough ahead. Officials predicted that the bulk of 1945 contracts would be In the hands of war contractors within three or four weeks. First Yanks On Furlough To England About Feb. 1 London, Jan. 26.

IOLA; KANSAS ^ Courageous Athlete Award to Heroes ^ Philadelphia, Jan. 26. (AP)—The most courageous athlete of 1944 is a composite of many persons—the little known and the great who came from every field of .sport to give their lives in the service of their country. For the first time In a decade, the Philadelphia Sporting Writers association paid this unique annual tribute to a group. "A posthiunous award to all courageous athletes who made the supreme sacrifice . . . and whose patriotism, courage and sportsmanship were embodied in Lt. Robert Wilson. U. S. arrmy air corps," read the inscription. The lieutenant, 22-year-old only son of Coach Jimmy Wilson of the Cincinnati Reds and former manager of the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs, was killed last December on a volunteer ml.ssion over India. "Jimmy said he jast couldn't make it and .said you would understand," Sports Editor Ed Pollock of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin told the more than 1,100 members and guests. Pollock presented the award to Dick Spalding, lifelong friend 6f the heutenant and a coach for the Cubs. Last year's courageous athlete award went to Pete Gray, one- armed baseball plaver. who is now the property of the St. Louis Browns. Marty (Slats) Marion, shortstop for the world champion St. Louis Cardmals, was named the "most outstanding athlete of 1944." "1 don't deserve it but I'll remember it as long as I live," he .said.

(AP)—The nation's civilians face a 1945 ration of less than one pat of buttei- a day. spokesmen for the industry said today as." they announced they had urged '^immediate" federal action to relieve, the butter "crisis."

Dr. H. A. Ruehe, institute secretary, said government policies now in effect "discourage" prpduction and that the loss in butter output last year was 322,000.000 pounds, more Ujan all the butter taken for the ari^ed forces and lend-lease— 287,000,000 pounds. He said the 1944 output pf crebmery butter was 1,478,000,000 pounds, as compared to a nornuil output of 1,800,000,000 pounds.! Other hunters prefer a neck- breaKing shot which strikes at the base oi the animal's skull. Mast of the buffalo weigh about 1.000 pounds. The hunter will be given the animal's head and hide for a trophy. He may also take a front quartet. He may purchase another quarter of his choice at 25 cents a pound for front or 35 cents a iround for a back section.
