Nazis Delayed B
More Than W
(Associated Press Staff Writer)
Something more formidable than
bad fighting weather delayed Hitler
armies on all fronts in recent weeks.
The Nazi war machine that has
shattered army after army # in its
conquests in manner unrivaled in
history, could not be thus held up
by a disorganized mob of armed
civilians alone.
Orderly Retreat
Berlin has admittedbitter Rus-
sian resistance and ceaseless Red
counter attacks everywhere except
in the Crimea. Red forces seem not
only to have made an aggressive stand
before Rostov, but to have begun
an orderly and fighting retreat east
of Kharkov in the Donets Basin.
On some sections of the Moscow
front, Red Army sources said, Soviet
troops had switched to winter attack.
But activity flared in the Leningrad
area, where a stalemate has existed
with Germans !laiming a break-
through in one strongly fortified
Nazi Allies Halted

but under German pressure .refrain
from saying so as yet.
Far to the south, from Axis-cap-
. tured Odessa, come authentic re-
ports of Rumanian troops moving
westward toward home, not eastward
to bolster the German advance in
force. With Bessarabia regained,j
Rumania seems passing out of the
l fight except for a token force still
cooperating withthe Germans.
While the battle of Moscow still
fluctuates uncertainly, and southward
of its perimeter the situation re-
mains obscure, there is growing pros-
pect of a winter stalemate before or
about the Russian fighting capital.
It is not yet even half enclosed in
the Nazi seige ring. Winter is mov-
ing up.

that winter will halt Nazi offensive
operations. Reports from the front{
yesterday said freezing weather had
hardened the mud and facilitated
tank operations. That permits Panz-
ur units-upon which the German
army has relied primarily in every
battle of this war-to punch their
way ahead.
Short of that, however, over much
of the Russian fi'ont the necessity of
digging in now or very soon seems
indicated for the Nazis.

This is an official Navy photo of the U.S. destroyer Reuben James which the Navy Department an-
nounced was sunk by a torpedo in the North Atlantic. The Reuben James was described as an 0-type,
flush deck destroyer, with a displacement of 1,190 tons.

Finnish reports strongly intimate,
without saying so, that on the Arctic
front northward from Leningrad the
Nazi allies have halted or been halted.,
