SIX PAGES Launch Full-Scale Assault in West Storm German Border Next Few Hours Expected to Show Whether Weakened Siegfried Line Can Long Be Held By JAMES M. LONG Pari-s, Jan. 31. (AP)— Whiteclad infantry of the V* American First army stormed across the snowdrifted German border at two new places today and Lt. Gen. Courtney H. Hodge.s' artillery started pouring shells into the main concrete works of j the thinly held Siegfried Line. All along a 35-rnile assault front from below St. Vith to the Roer river of Mon.schau, the First and Third armies had a full scale a.ssault under way with gains which carried the First to ramparts of the west wall and broadened the Third , army's foothold inside Germany to five miles. The next few hours, it was believed at supreme headquarters, might begin to show whether even with additional cold and delaying drifts, the Germans would be able to hold their fortifications with the force they left behind in their drainout to bolster the swaying eastern front. "Mass For Attack" (The Germans said Gen. Eisenhower was shifting ihis troops in preparation for an all-out offensive In Europe They Say, "Wait Until Week-End" Madrid, Jan. 31. (AP)—Some Nationals of neutral countries have delayed official and busi- trips to Berlin this week on the theory that significant developments are imminent.

They called the Monschau drive "Allied preparation to gain offensive bases.") To the north, Canadian and British troops wiped out the last enemy forces lioldlng out In a maze of more than 1,000 dikes on the Maas Island bridgehead of Kappelleschver, north of the Dutch town of Tilburg, in a three-day battle of men, tanfci. mortars and artillery. On the opposite side of the stirring 400 mile front, American and French troops moved within two miles of the Rhine below Strasbourg and tightened encircling arcs grasping for Colmar and Cernay. New Challenge to Reich Tlie initiative was back in Gen. Eisenhower's hands and as fast as th(; infantrymen and armor could move through the slushy, deep drifted snowfields, he was .slamming a new challenge from the west against the .shaken Reich. Although the active attack front was 35 miles wide, pressure was being exerted on an 80-mile frontier zone from the Monschau forest village of Kesternich to Sinz in Germany, southeast of Luxembourg City. The attack force presently committed was half as large as that hurled by Field Marshal Von Runstedt before Christmas into the Belgian bulge. \ Lt. Gen. Courtney H Hodges sent the 1st, 2nd. 9th, 78th, 99th and one other division of the First army into the drive—which was assuming the proportions of an offensive. Lt. Gen. George S. Patton Jr., committed four Third army divisions, the 5th Infantry. 6th Armored, 17th Airborne, and 94th Infantry. To Manage County Farm Upshaw Is Rehired By Commissioners; Marple Road Superintendent H. T. Upshaw, who was "fired" as superintendent of tlie Allen coimty farm in February, 1943, has been given a new contract hy the county commissioners and will resume management of the institution on March 1 when the recent resignation of R. E. Keele becomes effective, Alvin Ericson, chairman of the board, announced today. The commission also has appointed Roy Marple superintendent of roads. Mr. Marple will take charge tomorrow. Mr. and Mrs. Upshaw managed the county farm for three years from March 1, 1940, through February 28, 1943. About two weeks prior to the termination of the Upshaw contract in 1943 the commission said that the Upshaws had resigned and that Mr. and Mrs. Ben TTumer had been employed to manage the farm. However, Mr. Upshaw insisted that he had not resigned but had been "fired" and for no apparent reason. Mr. and Mrs. Tm-ner were in charge until September 30. 1944. They resigned to accept positions at the lola country club. Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Keele were employed at that time. The new contract with Mr. and Mrs. Upshaw vlll result in a payroll saving of about $85 per month. The contract with Mr. Keele pro- Pledges Fight To Death Hitler Urges Germans To Resist "Till Final Victory Is Won" in Anniversary Message London, Jan. 31. (AP) — The German nation, beset by powerful invading armies, embarked today on the 13th year of the Nazi regime, exhorted by Adolph Hitler to accept "boundless mi.-^ery" as the price of continued resistance. Germany, Hitler proclaimed to the world last night, will fight on to the death—"fight on no matter where and no matter imder what circumstances until final victory crowns our efforts." His speech marking the 12th anniversary of his ascendancy to the chancellorship on January 30, 1933, was broadcast from his headauar- ters amidst new.^ of continuing Rus- •;ian advances from the east. "Mission from God" "The cruel fate which is overtaking us in the east. In village and market places, in the country and in towns, is exterminating (German) pponle bv the tens of thousands," Hitler declared. "But it wiU be mastered in the end." Hitler twice asserted that God had Given him a mission. "The Almighty" saved him from assassination, he declared, and he saw in this "confirmation of my assigned task." Promises Victory The man who sent his armed legions into virtnallv every country of Europe gave the German people a rebulous promise of victory; despite "xovil'-^ reverses.

City, Jan. 31. (AP)—Dr. Logan Glendenlng, 90, nationally known miter on health matters, was found dead in his home this afternoon wi|h his throat slashed, and the coroper reported he apparently died abdut midnight last night. The botdy was discovered sprawled across a bed in the Clendening home in the fashionable Country Club district of southeast Kansas City shortly after noon. P. H.

Temperatures of 10 to 15 above were forecast for northern and western Kansas tonight and 15 to 20 for eastern and southern areas.

KING London, Jan. 31. (AP) — Marshal Gregpory Zhukov's troops today captured Landsberg, .68 miles east of Berlin, Marshal Stalin announced tonight, and Berlin broadcasts said the Red army had plunged to towns only 58 and 62 miles from the Reich's capital. Landsberg, great rail and road! hub on the Berlin-Danzig rail line, was conquered along with the strong points of Meseritz, Schwiebus and Zulllchau to the southeast as Zhu­ kov's forces broke through the German defense guarding Frankfurt on the Oder river 39 miles from Berlin. German broadcasts said Soviet columns had speared to Sold In, 58 miles from Berlin, and to Zlelen- zig, 62 miles from Germany's queen city. These would represent gains north and south beyond Landsberg by columns 35 miles apart. Zielenzig is only 55 miles from the suburbs included In greater Berlin.

Eighth army forces blasted any hopes the Japanese may have held for a large scale withdrawal to Bataan by driving swiftly east today toward a juncture with the Sixth army which would seal off the historic peninsula. This second invasion of Luzon, timed with a Sixth army push now within 30 miles of Manila, was disclosed in today's communique of Gen. Douglas MacArthur. The 38th division and a combat team of the 24th, which fought so heroically on Leyte in the central Philippines, were put ashore Monday on Zam- bales province in the 10 miles between the Santo Tomas river moutli and San Antonio without loss of a man, plane or ship.

The "anti-closed shop" amendment was snowed under by a teller vote of 178 to 142. A standing vote of 148 to 113 defeated an amendment to give statutory backing to the program of the president's fair employment practices committee set up to discourage discrimination in employment because of race, creed or color. The two amendments removed virtually all the controversy from the legislation, designed to require men between 18 and 45 to work in essential jobs under threat of induction, fine or imprisonment. the 23rd air base won on Luzon.

"Germany will flght on no matter where or under what conditions," the broadcast added, as other German radio reports told of millions of refugees fleeing toward Berlin from, areas directly threatened by the siurging Russian advance. Transocean, Nazi news agency, said 5,000,000 Germans were trudging westward from the threatened areas, some of them in columns more than 35 miles long.
