GERMAN OFFICERS SHOW DEFEATISM MOSCOW, July 9— m — Unmis takable signs of despair and de featism have developed among German officers on the eastern front, and on this 17th day of the massive Red army summer of fensive they faced a growing and for them — horrible spectre of angry Russians moving ever for ward upon Poland and upon the Reich itself. Pressing on the Soviet Baltic re publics, the Red army is only about 100 miles from east Prussia and 240 miles from Germany proper. Every German officer and soldier knows that the Russians sped from Orsha to Wilno—210 miles—in that 17 days. By a process of simple arithmetic that even a fanatical Nazi can understand, the implica tions are clear if the Russians maintain the momentum in the next 17 days. Already, fierce fighting rages to day near Baranowicze, which is as close to Berlin as it is to Moscow. (The Germans have acknowledged evacuating the town.) Nazi arithmetic also permits the German officers and men to count to ten—the number of German gen erals who have been captured dur ing the first 17 days. ino longer arrogant ana mourn ing Nazi propaganda, captured Nazi officers display a marked de parture from the hard models of former Russian campaigns. Now they seem quiet and depressed. Many, even including the captured generals, are admitting freely that Hitler will lose the war. The secret of silk worm culture was brought to Europe about 522 A. D. by two Nesftorian monks who smuggled out of China a quantity of silk worm eggs concealed in the hollows of their pilgrim staffs. 156.—Situations Wanted LET ME DO YOUR SHORT HAULING, plowing, mowing and yard cleaning.

Roudabush’s Seed Store 31 South Front Dial 6030 ' _ kJJJ T Texas Captain Invasion Spearhead; First Division Officer Led Charge’ By DON WHITEHEAD WITH THE FIRST DIVISION IN FRANCE, July 2.—(Delay ed)— (JP) — When the history books are written about the great invasion of France, you may never read of Joe Dawson. But no history will be complete without him. Thirty years old, Joe is a black-haired, lean-fac ed captain from Waco, Tex., a former oil region geologist. Commanding Company G of the fighting First Division, Joe led the first unit to come off the beach that bloody morning of June 6. He was that one lone man out in front of the tens of thousands of doughboys poured into Normandy. Joe and his men faced mur derous fire to open an assault on Germans hidden in trench es, pillboxes and concrete and steel blockhouses. Here’s what that means: When the doughboys hit the beach on D-Day, the Germans in strong positions poured di rect fire onto the beach with machineguns, rifles, mortars and artillery. The Yanks had landed from a heavy sea, cross ing mined log and steel bar riers. Shore gravel rose sharply from the water’s edge offer ing slight cover, and be hind that embankment thou sands of troops lay pinned to the beaeh. Joe’s commanding officer quickly assessed the situation. “Gentlemen,” he said, “we are being killed on the beach — let’s go inland and be killed.” So at the head of his com pany, Joe walked straight into an enemy minefield and across barbed wire to draw the lead fire. His men followed him. Joe doesn’t know I am writ ing about him. As we talked to day he said. “Give my men all the credit because they deserve it. They did a great job.” But in Joe’s story, I also hope to picture his men. A company led by Lt. John Spaulding, Owensboro. Ky. and Sgt. Phillip Streczyk, New York City poured on fire support from the beach while Joe de ployed his company on both sides of a route from the beach to Colleville, some 3.000 yards away. Of the push Joe said: “Things got to moving so fast I don’t re member just what did happen. It was cops and robbers stuff all around.” Anyway the men entered Qol leville. which was lousy with Germans. They fought a pitch * ed battle all day and all night and clung to their position — even when our own Navy began pounding the town with big guns, hurling shells all around them. In a church, Joe met a burst of fire. A bullet grazed his left kneecap and lodged in his right leg.—And Joe kept right after the Germans, firing blindly. When the enemy ran out and crossed a hedgerow. Joe ended this little fracas with a gren ade. while his men fought fur iously around him. “We got an anchor in the town and I built up firepower around it,” Joe said. Among men Joe said did “one hell of a great job” were Maj. George Washington of Crozet, Va., and Lt. Stanley A. Karis ■ I of New Jersey. Major Wash- j ington was on a crossroads out- j side of Colleville. Joe said. “He j stayed right there getting re inforcements up to us, feeding j us men and supplies to hold on i with, and he was all alone in i that hotspot.” Lieutenant Karis i was one of the officers who kept I fighting all night. | Three fighters with Dawson, I Lt. Kenneth Bleau, of Ilion, N. j Y.; Sgt. Stephen Sternik. of \ Johnson City, N. Y., and Sgt. } Frank Baldridge, of Quitman, , Ark., were credited with a total j j of some 100 Germans during the battle. , “We captured and killed a lot more Germans than we had in our outfit,” Bleau said. Bleau came into Colleville with only 13 men. They grimly held on in a courtyard which the Germans repeatedly tried to storm. When reinforcements moved up in strength on the second day, Dawson and his men still were holding on in Colleville. ’ Then Joe’s leg began to get stiff, and he was carted off to a hospital in northern Eng_ | land. X.rays showed he had suffered only a superficial I wound. But although Joe de. dared he was all right, a doc. ■ tor insisted that he stay there. ; So the next day Joe got up and left. He hitch-hiked his way to a port, and an old friend helped him get back to the beachhead. Meantime, the hos pital sent out frantic calls for the missing patient. Now he is in the front lines, commanding the me,, he led across the beaches on D.Day. I Poverty-Stricken trance Will Welcome Invaders BY ROSETTE HARGROVE .. _NEA Staff Correspondent-. . LONDON, July 9—The reality of France’s hunger, poverty and die-, ease is beginning to live up to the advance notices, now that the Allied Armies are leaving behind them the rich Normandy country side and entering their first big towns. The picture will grow in creasingly more grim as the arm ies progress and will provide the answer to the doubts in the fight ing men’s minds that perhaps after all France’s sufferings had been mere propaganda. When the Allies landed in Nor mandy, many were surprised to find it a “land of milk and honey”. Shops in the first small tpwns to be liberated were selling luxuries such as the British had not seen over a period of four years. Meat, butter, eggs, fruit, sizeable stocks of cider and apple-jack, even vin tage wines and champagne were all obtainable—at a price. This after four yers of occupation. What the men did not realize , was that Normandy is easily the richest province of France. It was the richest source of meat, dairy and poultry produce in Europe— richer even than Denmark. It is no wonder, therefore, that despite the fact that the army of occupa tion took about 90 per cent of the produce (German requisiton orders and records kept by town clerks prove this the remaining 10 per cent was sufficient to feed the in habitants reasonably well, leaving a surplus from which to send par cels to relatives and friends in the towns. Since D-Day furthermore, re-1 quisitions ceased and disrupted communications stopped the send ing of food parcels. But cows have gone on producing milk, hens lay ing eggs and the Allied bombard ment of Delivrande alone giled hun dreds of heads of cattle. So the stories of troops feeding on ttie fat of the land are true. Add to that the fact that a Frenchwoman has the knack of making a delicious dish out of a bone and a handful of vegetables that this is the season when asparagus, artichokes, crisp salads and luscious strawberries are at their best, and you have the elements of the best French cuisine. Give a French housewife Army rations and she will manage to turn them into a succulent meal. The richness of Normandy helped make life extremely comfortable for the Germans entrenched in their forts in that section of the Atlantic Wall. Some were compar able to super hotels, air-condition* ed, with electric lighting and all the domestic amenities associated with a Hollywood interior. In one of them a large room was found with parcels in process of being dis patched by German enlisted men to their families back home, con taining three pounds of sweet but ter, a fat Camenbert cheese, cos metics and trinkets. American troops will soon find, however that outside this rich agri cultural belt the French have not been living on the fst of the land, especially the poorer people who could never have paid black mar ket prices.

Germans used butter to grease] vheir boots. j 'As the Allies advance the scene will change vastly.
