Tall Tower
Editor of Tall Tbwers .. . Could you spare space in
your paper for a taxpayer to express views, probably a
lot of folks are thinking along the same lines, but when
not spoken, are never heard. Residents of Washington
Hill, without a doubt, are certainly feeling, if they will
let themselves do so—a little let down by the treatment
accorded to a few members of the Community Club who
visited our Board of Aldermen meeting—Monday night of
this week—regarding the sale of the Mulcahy School.
From the tone of the newspaper reports on this visit,
perhaps some of us are a little “thin skinned”—it would
seem the visit was not as cordial a# it might be, if it were
a little later in the year — The Republican side of the
Board was a little more friendly than some of the
others. Now, while some people may have an idea we
residents of The Hill “always have a chip on our
shoulder”, such is not the case—at least “not always”—
perhaps we are a little clanish—and figures certainly
show that we are at certain times, when our support is
really needed—we go “all the way to do our part” and
we certainly expect consideration likewise when we ask
a favor—at least one gets more with “molasses than
vinegar”. We people from The Hill feel—that our citi
zens who were born and raised within the shadows of
our “Hills” have been outstanding in nearly every walk
of life—and we can stick our chests out and say — “it
really is a good place to come from”—we certainly can’t
be hated for loyalty such as that can we. There must
be some way that Mulcahy School could be made use of
in such a way that everyone will be satisfied—if it is such
an expense to the school department—with trfie priorities
as they are today, and it is almost impossible to get lum
ber to do anything with—why can’t some of the Veterans
make use of it. There is a movement afoot to have a new
Y.W. in our fair city—the present Y.M.C.A. is crowded to
take care of everything it now has comfortably The
Silas Bronson Library has been reported worked to its
limit. We have boys coming back from the service with
no facilities to entertain them. It would seem that the
powers that be—could put some of the “brain-trust” here
in Waterbury to work and find a way to save Mulcahy
School temporarily at least. What if it does need a little
repairs? Don’t our taxes take care of something once
in a while? And can’t taxpayers have a little to say as
to what kind of public buildings will be with them 24
hours a day—every day in the year? Washington Hill
wouldn’t be the nice place it is to live in today, if we
didn’t all take pxart in keeping it so, and we may go so far
as to say—even improve it when and where we can. —
A Taxpayer.
The last letter written by Private Jack Barnes, the
son of a former Waterbury women, will be read over the
Catholic Hour broadcast tonight at 6 p. m. The soldier
lost his life in action on the European battlefield while
serving with the First Army on November 19, 1944.
His mother, Mrs. John Barnes, of Washington, D. C.,
is the former Ruth W. Monaghan of this city. Mrs.
Barnes’s sister, Mrs. R. G. Steward, resides at 85 Euclid
Avenue.... A machine gun, used in the historic battle
•f Iwo Jima, was named for a Waterbury girl, the
Tower has just learned. Corporal Frank R. Falcone,
formerly of 78 Geddes Terrace, who faced enemy fire
on the volcanic island for endless days, named the gun
'The Midge” in honor of Justine “Midge” Palomba, 44
East Liberty Street. Frank’s parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Michael Falcone, recently received a letter from him
stating that he came through the bloody Iwo Jima
campaign without a scratch.

That was really a mighty fine gesture on the part of
the Unico Club presenting an American flag to the Juve
nile Court officials of the Waterbury district and dedi
cating it as an appreciation “of the devoted services of
Probation Officer Kathleen Crowley”. From our own
personal observation we don’t believe that Miss Crowley
needs any public expression of approval for her efforts on
behalf of youth—she derives a keener, personal pleasure
in being able to lending a helping hand. She is a pioneer
in the work in Waterbury and Connecticut and we know
of no finer or more altruistic work than that of trying
to set a course of action for young boys and girls to fol
low useful, productive and happy citizenship and all
the responsibilities the privilege involves. The fact that
a word of sympathy or the application of the proper kind
of discipline at the right time may save a youngster with
innate ability and potential good from the “scrap heap”
by the way of reformatory and state prison, is something
that inspires one to unusual effort. Miss Crowley has dealt
with thousands of young girls as a club director and su
pervisor and knows all types. She has had dealings with
scores of young boys and girls, perhaps of more critical
tendencies and she knows not only the type, but the an
swer to the problem involved. It is sometimes a thankless
job trying to reclaim a youth, especially when the youth’s
parents see no wrong, believe no ill reports of their off
spring, and resent “outside” supervision. Thanks to Miss
Clowley that feeling has often given way to a prayer of
gratitude for “service rendered.” Yes, indeed, the Unico
Club did itself proud in honoring Miss Crowley. It hon
ored not only her, but her associates and provided inspira
tion and incentive (for such is the power of appreciation)
to even greater efforts in combatting juvenile delinquen
cy and saving worthwhile boys and girls.
Good Night.

Curt Riess, On Daring Trip To Unoccupied Germany, Discovers:
Nazi Chiefs Give Up War As Lost—
Speed Wehrmacht Retreat To Alps
The following story U the fruit ef a during trig into unoccupied

Berne, Switzerland, April 6—Adolf Hitler and other
Nazi leaders have abandoned all hope for a successful de
fense of the Reich.
This news I bring back after making a secret trip into
unoccupied Germany.
A decision to recognize the hopelessness of the German military posi
tion was reached in a meeting at Berchtesgaden, on March 29, between
Hitler, Himmler and three generals—one of whom was Kesselrlng.
Retirement of the elite troops into Redult, the German stronghold In
the Bavarian Alps, has begun. This move was planned and organized
long ago, and the retreat is going on with the greatest possible speed.
During the week commencing April 1, an important conference was
held in Slgmarlngen, so that all details connected with this latest devel
opment oould be discussed and cleared. Officially, the meeting was one
of SS leadership. The official program is the ‘Report of the Reichsfuehr
er SS on Past and Future Developments." The Reichsfuehrer is Himmler.
All important personalities of the SS and all Gauletiers, as well as
key personnel of the Bormann party machine, were present. For the
last two weeks most of the population of Slgmarlngen has been evacuated.

Hitler, Kesselrlng, Himmler . . . they'll try to execate Plan K.
Petaln, Laval and the whole Vichy crowd now are installed in Garm
lsch Partenlclrchen. Sigmarlngen is filling rapidly with Gestapo agents
and other personnel connected with Himmler’s and Bormann’s machines.
Evacuation of the population and particularly of the Vichy crowd,
was ont for the purpose of this one meeting. Sigmarlngen has become the
new Nazi military headquarters. All movements, such as retirement of
the German armies, transport of men and material into Reduit, and or
ders to surrounded holdouts as to how long to continue the fight, will be
coordinated here.
The program of the meeting had two main points. One was the plan
nlng of continued retirements on the eastern and western fronts. The
other was organization of the retreat Into Reduit. This retreat was worked
out some time ago, down to the smallest detail. Nothing has been left .
to chance. 1
All this is covered by “Plan K.” Plan K Is a prefabricated plan of
the evacuation of Oermany with every move fixed for a certain hour
relative to zero hour. During the meeting at Sigmarlngen, aero hour was
established. Then the retreat will begin In full swing.
Most Nazi big shots already have moved southward nearer Reduit.
Himmler’s residence Is Chateau Wohlfurt, near Bregenz. Ooerlng is es
tablished In Prledrlchshaven near Lake Constance. Ooebbels Is at Lake •
Constance Itself. The Foreign Office is somewhere In Thuringia, but Is
supposed to be moved further'south soon.
It Is also definitely established that not all Nazi leaders are to be
saved by admission to Reduit. Some will have to remain and defend im- •
portant points until the last. I was also told that one of the most Im
portant Nazis will remain outside Reduit and thus sacrifice himself for
reasons of morale of the German people. Supposedly, Goebbels felt
that this was absolutely necessary. Who has been chosen? I couldn’t es- g
tabllsh the Identity of the Nazi who will be sacrificed, but there's likeli
hood that Ooebbels himself will defend Berlin until the last.
According to my last Information, 100,000 troops are already In
Reduit and more than 300,000 troops are concentrated between the Black g
Forest and Lake Constance, ready to move In.
Netdless to say, It Is by no means established that everything will
go according to Plan K. It stands to reason that Informed Allied Head
quarters will make some countermoves. Perhaps this Is the reason for the m
hastily arranged conference at Sigmarlngen. *
