Russian winter advance, although there are continuing Out of Vaults / favorable reports from the Fifth Army front in Italy and s L d the,ceaseless Allied air offensives in Europe and Asia. ea an 1ng During the past seven days, the Soviet steam roller has smashed forward 40 miles across the old For Late Scoops Polish border. Farther south, Red spearheads are pointed Zhmerinka, the vitally strategic Nazi stronghold astride the Odessa-Warsaw railway network, This drive has captured Zhornishche, only about 30 miles from Zhmerinka and little more than 50 miles from the border. NAZI DEBACLE The latest and most immediat!i! German disaster in Russia is developing in the Smela area, just north of Kirovograd, which fell to victorious Soviet troops of the First Ukranian Army on Sunday, Battle reports Tuesday listed 8 000 Germans killed on this frontin one day, as the Red Army drove on to meet their comrades of General Vatutin's command, smashing south from Rt;lki. If the two armies meet, hundreds of thousands of Nazis face another Stalingrad. When the Russian machine thundered into ,Poland it also stirred considerable diplomatic and political dust in London and Washington, for leaders of the exiled Polish government protested, and the Union of Polish Patriots in' Moscow came back at them. Russia was expected to demand post-war possession of things that were once Russian. (Shaded areas on map are concerned with such. current discussions as retention of eastern Poland to the border that existed i.ri 1939; retention of Lat via, Estonia and Lithuania; reten-. tion of Bessarabia and Bukovina. Finland, some observers believed, will be treated. sternly, and the Russians will retake the frontier line acquired after the .1939 Finnish war.) Following a week's lull, the smoldering Italian central front has again broken into flame, with General Mark Clark's Fifth .Army resuming its unrelenting advance toward Rome. Heavy fighting raged last week in the little town of San Vittore, which fell Friday after a savage house-to-house battle through the city' s streets. Objective of the Fifth Army is Cassino, Nazi anchor in the defense line guarding the Liri valley. American tanks and infantry have plowed forward six miles, occupying heights within three miles of Cassino at some points. NEW BOMB DEVICE All-out aerial attacks on Axis Europe continued. Early in the week, hundreds of British blockbusting bombers rocked Stettin, main Baltic supply port for the hard-pressed northern Russian armies.

The devicE; was used on a mission that was carried out above a 100 per cent cloud cover. And the RAF and AAF an nounced experiments were under way on a "rocket" plane. (See pictures on page 16.) BULGARIA BOMBED "The theory," Major Gordon said, "is. that after a distant target has been bombed, the participating plane does not always have sufficient fuel to retturn to its base . "Most objectives require long flights over vast strekhes of water, and in the event of a forced into the water it is necessary that each member of the crew know exactly what to do and execute it in the least pos sible time. The 'lives of all may rest on the adeptness of any one man," he said. Clearing a life raft fri)m a foundering airship will be one of the major subjects studied and practiced. Also scheduled will be the proper method of packing a life raft with sustaining necessities. Included as one of the most vital of all the raft's equipment is the tarpaulin. This is used to collect rain water and, with the help of oars, can be made into a makeshift sail. It "also is used'to mitigate the effects of sun and storm. Other necessities to be hastily and efficiently packed onto the raft are food r .ations, fishing equipment, equipment, radio and first-l96th BOMBERS FETED BY SOld Bombers and fighters !from the Mediterranean Command also were in action over the Balkans Welcoming the 396th and Italy, raiding enemy supply ment Group to Drew Field, the depots and harassing troops, 503d SAW were their hosts at a Strong formations of American gala party at Rec Hall No. 2 Fortresses again bombed Sofia, Wednesday.

Sergeant Hawes was host at a dinner which his fellow workers gave for him at the Spanish Park restaurant, which has been the scene of many of the parties working toward the goal of good fellowship between the enlisted personnel. During the absence of Sgt Hawes, the officers' pay section is under the supervision of S /Sgt. Gardner Smith. COME "HOME" The men returning to the office have meant much in the way of relieving the burden o f increased volume of work. Those returning were: Tech. Sgt.

Corporal Andretta: was listed as a casual out of the group of our boys.

But other Gis from Drew Field might not. So, if you have space in your column, this may serve as a sign post for soldiers with ideas to propound. The point is that a group of soldiers. (wives and other feminine attachments are included) meet Sunday nights at 7 p.m. at the USO ea.st of the YMCA. They bounce around each other's thotights on post-war pr.oblems in particular, and other problems in general. Usually, there's an authoritative moderator to start the discussion and hold it in the groove when it threatens to veer. The topic for Jan. 9, is "The War's Effect on the Bri.tish Empire." . Hqt civilian coffee and homemade cookies are served, which makes it physically,_ as well as mentally, a good deal. It's free. ,.. PVT . ROBERT KNAPP,_ Trg. Co. A, 4th 'IIrg. Btn.

I h_ad no sooner started reading when an MP (I have always considered the movie MPs a little more high and mighty and insolent than ne.cessary, anyway.) ordered me to put the magazine away.

However, there is one gripe concerning this: Why the echo? Ha1 the time you can't hear anything that' s said (especially on certain parts of the field) merely because it's said two or three times due ito some technical frailty in the setup, apparently. So much for the oral angle, but for the music-thorns. You can' t distinguish one scratch from another. It's all run together like hang-over thoughts. Yours for less spirit and more hear-it, PFC.

In the fact that Drew Field has such a nice club for the enlisted personnel and so many of the boys seem to make such good use of it, maybe you could let us in on why the W .1\Cs don' t do the same. I am sure the girls could enjoy themselves just as much as the boys do and surely they could put a little more life in it for all. That club is for them as much as it is for the boys so let's see if we can' t get them over more often. Thank you, .. THE BOYS Dee Editorial Dear Sir: Congrats on your Dee editorial.
