U. 5., Britain Unify
Policy on Exiled Poles; Split With Reds Seen The United States and Great Brit ain have agreed on a policy of con tinuing diplomatic relations with the Polish government-in-exile in Lon don despite claims of the Polish Committee of National Liberation in Lublin to be the "provisional gov ernment" of Poland, it was learned authoritatively today. Inasmuch as Moscow is expected to recognize the Lublin group, which it has sponsored, a split among the “big three” powers on the policy is apparent. The Earl of Halifax, the British Ambassador, called on Secretary of State Stettinius shortly before noon today and later told newspapermen they had discussed Poland and Greece, among other problems. He added, "that no new ground was broken.” It is understood that the Anglo-American agreement on Po lish policy was reached several days ago. Secretary Stettinius had declared yesterday that the United States is continuing to maintain relations with the Polish government-in-exile. Lord Halifax said one of the problems that he discussed with Mr. Stettinius was that of increasing the flow of infoimation on current prob lems between the United States, Great Britain and Russia. Asked if the advisory commission in London might function as a clear ing house for information, the Am bassador admitted the possibility but said there were no concrete plans toward that end. Asked if he had anv late infor mation on the projected meeting of Foreign Secretaries Anthony Eden, Stettinius and Molotov, the Ambassador said he was not aware of any official plans. Mr. Eden said in Commons recently that he was hopeful such a meeting could be held and added that he thought conferences \bf this kind would be useful frequently. At his press conference today. Mr. Stettinius was questioned regarding a New York Times newspaper re port from Cairo saying that the American Government had drafted plans providing for a postwar Aus tria with vastly enlarged territory-, including the Bolzano area which was awarded to Italys after the World War. The Secretary answered that the State Department had been making1 certain territorial studies which were being revised from time to time, and that they should not be considered by any means as final.

Nazis' Newest Trick, 'Fire Balls,' Follow Or Precede Planes By the Associated Pres*. A UNITED STATES NIGHT FIGHTER BASE, Fiance. Jan. 2 — American fighter pilots engaged in flying night intruder missions over Germany report the Nazis have come up with a new "secret weapon”'■ —mysterious "balls of fire" which race along beside their planes for miles like will-o’-the-wisps. Yank pilots have dubbed them "foo fighters,’’ and at first thought they might explode, but so far there is no indication that any planes have been damaged by them. Some pilots have expressed belief that the "foo fighter" was designed strictly as a psychological weapon. Intelligence reports seem to indicate it is radio-controlled from the ground and can keep pace with planes flying 300 miles per hour. Lt. Donald Meiers, Chicago, said there are three types of "foo fighters"—red balls of fire that fly along at wing tip; a vertical row of three balls of fire which fly in front of the planes, and a group of about 15 lights which follow the plane at a distance, flickering on and off. "A ’foo-fighter’ picked me up re cently at 700 feet and chased me 20 miles down the Rhine Valley," j Lt. Meiers said. "I turned to star board and two balls of fire turned with me. I turned to the port side and they turned with me. We were going 260 miles an hour and the balls were keeping right up with us. "On another occasion w'hen a foo fighter’ picked us up. I dove at 360 miles per hour. It kept right off oqr wing tips for awhile and then, zoomed up into the sky. "When I first saw the things off my wing tips I had the horrible thought that a German on the! ground was ready to press a button and explode them. But they don’t explode or attack us. They just seem to follow us like will-o’-the wisps." Western Front (Continued From First Page.! west bank of the Saar between Saarbrucken and Sarreguemines. Some 3d Army defense outposts were pushed back around Saar brucken. i The German communique said more than 1,000 tanks had been deslioyed or captured in the bulge during the Nazi offensive, 48 of them yesterday. The 3d Army was declared attacking in great strength north of Bastogne toward the road center of Houf falize. sustaining heavy losses without achieving a break through. Further German gains were claimed along the Saar and the northeast border of Lor raine.) I wo i ounierauacKS nepuisea. Supreme headquarters said today that two German counterattacks were repulsed in the area of Champs. 3 miles northwest of Bastogne. and near Viller-la-Bonne-Eua, 5 miles southeast. The Germans still were throwing most of their strength into the Bel gian bulge. They were bracing the hard defensive line St. Hubert-Wiltz and persisting in counterattacks around Bastogne. The next moves in the gigantic test of men, strategy and machines were not yet apparent. It was plain,1 however, that Von Rundstedt has been badly hurt by sustained and heavy Allied air attacks which went into their 11th day today. The whole front from Linnich to Stavelot at the north-central part J of the bulge saw little activity yes- ! terday. American flak guns de stroyed 17 strafing planes in the area. Allied artillery beat off German self-propelled guns which the enemy ferried across the Maas in darkness north of Kapelle in Northwest Hol land. Canadians Repulse Patrols. Canadian guns threw back two German patrols which also slipped across the river. Elsewhere the British and Canadian sectors were quiet, just as for the last six weeks. East of Bastogne, there was heavy infantry fighting for a chain of hills along the south bank of the Wiltz River. Third Army gains were meas ured in hundreds of yards. Gen. Eisenhower's communique said the Americans “made small gains in the Saarlautern bridge head.” This was the first account of any attacks initiated along the Saar by the Americans since Von Rundstedt s December offensive broke up the Allied drive for the Rhine. It did not appear that this signaled a renewal of the offensive, however. The best information indicated that any advances were intended merely to secure more favorable positions in minor adjustments of the line. Questioned about a German asser tion that the 106th Infantry Division had been wiped out in the Belgian bulge battle, suprgne headquarters made no comment. ' AMERICAN ATTACKS ON GERMAN SALIENT—Arrows indi cate American attempts to break up the German salient in Belgium and Luxembourg on basis of today's reports. The 3d Army widened its spearhead north of Bastogne and made gains between Bastogne and Moircy. Approximately 13 miles now separate the 3d Army from 1st Army forces, which have cap tured Grandmenil on the north side of the salient. Shaded area is German held. —AP Wirephoto. McAuliffe Was Asleep When Patton Arrived To Present Him DSC By JACK BELL, Special to The Star and the Chicafo . Daily News. WITH THE 4th ARMORED DIVISION, Belgium. Jan. 1 i De layed i.—Brig. Gen. Anthony C. Mc Auliffe of Washington. D. C., the commander who gave the reply of "Nuts” to a German demand to surrender at Bastogne, received the Distinguished Service Cross yester day from Lt. Gen. George S. Patton, jr., 3d Army commander, in brief battlefield ceremonies. Gen. McAuliffe,. who was acting commander of the 101st Air-borne Division when he gave the succinct answer to the Germans, was asleep when Gen. Patton and his party drove up in jeeps. Gen. Patton stepped out, asking for Gen. Mc Auliffe and Lt. Col. Steve Chappuis, the skipper of the 502d Paratroop Regiment, which threw back Jerry's mightiest counterattack on Christ mas Day.
