PAGE SIX + + + The WAR TODAY + + + •WEEK'S BOWtJNG SCHEDITLE BY DEWITT MACKENZIE With vast satisfaction this column records that German morale Is one of blackest desperation In the face of a disaster which is Inevitable. And no wonder, for we are wlt- npsslng the death throes of a war machine which a little more than five years ago was the most powerful ever created—so overwhBlmlhg in Its strength that it almost: enslaved Europe. We can go evea further and say that this is the £as9^ of a great power—for the penalty wWch Germany must pay for 'her crimes against humanity is to be. stripped of tliat position among nations and reduced to the ranks. The Reich presents a picture of a country in an advanced state of siege—and indeed it Isc-.wlth the Muscovites lunging at the,eastern gateways to Berlin, and tl^e western Allies driving in against the Rhen­ ish defenses. The presguse^n both sides of the fathcrlandf feittenlfio. Civilians are fleeing"*from Upper SUesia and other border zones before these forces. There's even an exodus from Berlin itself—not surprising In view of the fact that officialdom Is moving away to Munich which has become the "center of resistance." Dislocation of public services and shortages of essentials like food and fuel are causing much suffering In many sections. At long last Hltlerdom is beginning tc pay In kind for all the pain It has in- flirted on other peoples. . German newspapers, as quoted by Swedish correspondents in Berlin, go to the extreme of declaring that "panic is sweeping the nation from ^ast to west." The press adds that the "next eight days" may decide the war. ' No explanation of what Is meant by the "next eight days" is offered, but It strikes me that this is clear enough. It refers to Germany's problem of mustering strength for the last stand. Probably not even the Nazis, know In this hour of conni- slon how much they can produce to meet this crisis. However, while the Nazis can't evade recognition of the fact that their cause is hopeless, they continue feverish preparations for a bloody finish fight. Undoubtedly one factor which enters Into the N.izl "eight day" calculation has to do with whether •he Red armies can keep up the pace of their cyclonic offensive without pausing for a breather. They already have been going since January 12 at a pace which Is one of the marvels of military history, and under normal clrciunstances they would be expected to slow down for a bit. There are several reasons for this expectation. One is that they may have got ahead of their main supplies) In their wild race. Another of course is that they may need a little time to bring up reserves for the final assault. Also Important is the fact that the Russians .still have to protect both flanks of their great battle-line, which extends from the Baltic sea clear down to Hungary. It's true that they virtually have neutralized the big German force in East Prussia, and have gone far towards nullifying the danger from a German counter-thrust in the south. Still, until those German armies have been annihilated they rem&ln a potential menace which cannot be disregarded by the Russian forces advancing In the center. If the Russians do.slacken up and 80 give the Nazis a little respite to man their defense.i it will draw the battle out some. In any event fierce fighting Is still In prospect. Pacific Fleet Headquarters Clbser to Japan Advanced U. S. Pacific Fleet Headquarters, Forward Area, Jan. 29. (AP)—History's greatest sea power, 1 the United States Pacific fleet, was operating today from this new advanced headquarters—several thousand miles closer to Japan than Peart Harbor. Fleet Adm: Chester W. Nlraltz disclosed the move In Issuing the first commimlques from; the "'Forward Area" headquarters yesterday. The cohmiunlques recapitulated the losses Inflicted on the enemy by •niird fleet carrier plane blows against Formosa and the 'Ryuku islands January 20-21. Exact location of the headquarters for Nlmltz, as fleet commander- in-chief and commander Pacific ocean areas, was not disclosed. This, it was explained, was in line with the policy of concealing communication routes from the enemy. The communiques from the new headquarters said the carrier planes sank or damaged more than 125,000 tons of enemy shipping In the For- mosa-RyukyuB raid. They shot down or destroyed 177 planes and damaged 203 on the ground.

(AP)—No one -was elected to baseball's hal of :fame on the latest ballot and ^hat 3ocks as if the machinery had ; ;Upped a cog. . . . When IVank Chance, the "peerless leader," falls 8<ven votes short; when Clark Grifflt i, a great pitcher and manager before he became a club owner, muiters only 108 ballots and when "^ron Man" McOlnnlty and "Home Hun" Baker draw fewer than 50 -vites each, the reason must be ignon nee or forgetfulness. . . . They are n od- em players, but few modem writers ever saw them play. ... So v hat chande have the stars of the 80's and 90's and even before who havsnt yet been honored with places In the Oooperstown museum?... The re's a special committea to vote on them, but certainly nobody's memory of their feats Is getting any fresher. Just a Suggestion Before it's too late, how ablout getting men who saw those real dld- tlmers In action to submit their ideas on who were the outstanding stars of each decade'or five-year period? . . . They could sav whether s^ch men as Tommy Bond and Billy Nash, stars back in baseball's dkrk ages; Mike "King" Kelly and John Clarkson, a great battery In the iJO's and the first players ever sbld for as much as $10,000; Tim Keefe, Big Bill lange, Fred Onenney, Hugh Duffy and others of their times deserve places in the hall beside Alexander Cartwrlght, A. O. 'Spalding, "Old Hoss" Radboiime and a few other early-day players who have been named. . .. Their part of baseball history has been written; with such sage advice, the committee could make a final selection those whose part In the wrltl^ should be kept alive. THE lOLA REGISTER.

The Giants probably would rather have a friend than an enemy in Yankee stadium, but the calendar shows only nine regular- season Sundays, of which the Giants normally would use six. . . . With Luke Appling in the army, the Whl^e Sox used 120 dozen fewer baseballs last season than in 1943. But theyfd rather have Luke fouling them off. No Escape When Frankie Frlsch was on that USO tour, he visited one area where regulations about uniforms wei[e strictly enforced. . . . One morning Frank was prowling around camp in uniform but wearing a non-reguki- tlon cap, ... A soldier spotted it and offered a friendly warning, "Youd better watch it, fella, cr you'll get fined." . . . "Golly," r€ torted Frisch, "do they have lunplres over here, too?"

Despite snowdrifts that piled ui as high as seven feet in some places Lt. Gen. (Courtney Hodges' Phsi army doughboyls swept up foui towns five to seven miles northeast of St. Vlth. Clad in snowcapes for camouflage and newly-issued arctic suits, the Americans descended upon the Nazi garrisons as they slept. The doughboys themselves had been surprised that an assault had been ordered in such weather, and startled German prisoners said they didnt dream anyone would attack under the prevailing conditions. . A8k FDR to Take Hand In Wallace Controversy Washington, Jan. 29. (AP)—President Roosevelt may take a direct hand In efforts to salvage a cabinet post for Henry Wallace. Senate sources said Mr. Roosevelt has been asked by supporters of the former vice president either to transfer government lending agencies from the department of commerce by executive order or state publicly that he would approve legislation to accomplish this. Reports circulated, meanwhile, that if dual powers formerly wielded by Jesse Jones are separated, stabilization director Fred Vinson may be the president's choice for loan administrator.
