Deep in our hearts is a picture of dear

What would we give to see his fact,
His lovely hands to touch,
To hear his voice and see his smile.
That meant to us so much.
He little thought when leaving home
That he would never return,
That he so soon in death would sleep,
And leave us here to mourn.
God has taken you away, dear Rudolph,
Across the Great Divide;
The cross, indeed, is hard to bear.
Without you at our side.
Some day we hope to meet you,
Some day, we know not when.
But we shall clasp each other’s hand
In a far and better land.

|Today s ^A^Q^ Story
Guerrilla Uprising in Prague
Was Similar to Paris T ragedy
By THOMAS R. HENRY,
Star Staff Correspondent.
PRAGUE.—For years Prague had
endured the agony of ruthless oc
cupation.
Still the spirit of the people was
not crushed and new atrocities only
made the fires of hatred bum hot
ter. A guerrilla army was formed
in secret. Like the underground
forces of most of Europe it was
organized in cells.
The activities of these guerrillas
naturally were limited. Sabotage
targets always were targefs of op
portunity. Still they rendered val
uable service, especially to the Rus
sians, with whom they were in
closest contact, by blowing rail
road bridges, cutting telephone lines,
dynamiting small factories. There
was an efficient underground or
ganization for rescuing and hiding
shot-down Allied pilots. Perhaps the
most sensational coup of the guer
rillas was the revenge assassination
of the first German •'protector,"
Heinrich Heydrich. For this the
Germans carried out the destruc
tion and massacre of Lidice.
The work of the guerrillas was
handicapped by poor communica
tions with the outside world. They
were forced to act entirely on their
own judgment fend on the basis of
rumors. With growing nerve ten
sion as they received garbled stories
of British, American and Russian
victories, they waited the great day
of a general uprising when they
could come out in the open.
Yanks Reported Near.
Early In May this seemed very
close at hand. Troops of the Amer
ican 3d Army had skirted the fringe
of Czechoslovakia. From garbled
radio reports It appeared they had
come much farther into the country.
The 1st Infantry Division of the
1st Army and a small contingent
of the Czech Legion was established
a £ Eger in the Western Sudeten
land. A few days later the 2d
Infantry Division entered Pilsen.
All this was essentially without
opposition. The Germans had
stopped fighting. Everywhere their
armies were surrendering. Some
where to the north and northwest
of Prague were the Russians. They
had mopped up Berlin. Nobody
was opposing them any longer.
The Prague underground assumed
that the Americans at Pilsen would
continue northward into the capi
tal. They also assumed that the
Russians would continue their ad
vance.- The hour had struck. Ger
man forces in the city were help
less between these two advancing
armies. The underground served
its ultimatum.
The story of the liberation of
Prague Is curiously similar to that
of the liberation of Paris. Both
these were effected primarily by
revolutions against the German rule
from the inside. In each case the
revolts were premature and resulted
in much unnecessary bloodshed.
They were set,off by false reports
that Allied troops were much nearer
than they actually were and by
the natural feeling on the part of
the people that the deliverance of
a great city is a primary military
objective. In these days this rarely
is true. The objective is to destroy
the enemy army. Possession of any
particular city may, but often does
not, further this end.
Paris Outbreak Recalled.
In Paris the guerrilla revolution
had seemed, at first, a complete suc
cess. After only a gesture of fight
ing to save their faces the Germans
had agreed very readily to get out.
Then some of them changed their
minds and the troops of the United
States 1st Army which entered the
city had a. stiff fight on their hands
for nearly three days.
The same thing apparently hap
pened in Prague. The Germans
knew the hopelessness of their posi
tion better than the underground.
They knew the war was over. They
knew they could hold out only a
few days at the mast. Their fondest
hope was to become American, rath
er than Russian, prisoners of war.
Their fear was that if the guerril
las knew the true situation they
would try to hold them in the city
until the Russians arrived. Now
the only demand was that they get
out, which they probably intended
to do anyway. They gladly agreed
to evacuate the city, and it seemed
the underground had won a blood
less victory.
Then the Germans changed their
minds, just as they did in Paris.
Apparently it was not the Wehr
macht which broke the truce but
the SS. Probably they had much
better intelligence as to the real
situation than the Prague under
ground. They knew that neither
the Americans nor the Russians
actually were on their way to the
city. Moreover, their behavior had
been such in the past that they
could expect little mercy from either
side. The Russians probably would
shoot them out of hand. They
assumed that the Americans would
turn them over to the Czechs, which
would be even worse.
They were led by an insane sadist,
Gauleiter Frank. This one-eyed
[demon—he had an almost perfect
glass eye and Prague people used
to say It could be distinguished from
his good eye because a slight glint
of pity could be detected in it as he
watched some of his worst atrocities
—saw that he had reached the end
of his trail of blood lust. Once the
SS troops decided on fight, all the
advantage was on their side. They
were well armed with heavy weap
ons and tanks. The underground'
had only small arms, and even these]
in nondescript variety.
Fighting Continues.
There followed two days of bloody
fighting while the rest of the world
was rejoicing in victory. There was
no stopping the tanks with rifles
and pistols. The whole under
ground came out in the open. They
were Joined by half the people of
the city. Pavements were torn up,
largely by old men and women, and
barricades made of the paving
blocks. These, as can be imagined,
did little to stop German tanks.
As a further protection for the
tanks women and children were
forced to walk ahead of them while
the big guns fired over their heads
at the defenders behind the barri
cades. People were taken out of
houses and shot ruthlessly.
Then the Germans received in
telligence that the Russians were
nearer at hand than they had
thought. If they were to escape
there was no time to be lost. They
started southward in any convey
ances they could find.
The number of Czech dead was
placed anywhere from 5,000 to 50,
000. I am now told that the correct
figure was about 5,000—bad enough
when it is considered that the war
officially was over when this hap
pened.
