Force At Sevastopol
Believed Weakened
Diversion Of Troops

Italians, Slovaks
CalledUp To Aid
(By The Associated Press)
LQNDON, Dec. 4.-Stiffened Ger-
Yvan resistance on the Rostov-Mariu,
p0 frotit where the, retreating main
Nazi armies were understood to be
urgently calling up reinforcements
from the Crimea in an effort to
break the most powerful Russian
counter-offensive of the war, was re-
ported tonight in Soviet avices.
This vwas accompanied'by indica-
tions German pressure on Sevastopol,
the great Black Sea naval base in the
Crimea and by far the most impor-
ant of Hitler's dbjectives on that
peninsula, had been in consequence
much weakened by the diversion of
these substantial forces.'
On the Moscow front, the midnight
Soviet communique announced, 4,400
Germans had ben wiped out, and
700 more "annihilated" in the south-
west. Coordinated land and air at-
tacks in the latter' sector were said
to have taken a heavy toll of German
tanks and supply trucks.
While a correlated strengthening
of Field Marshal Ewald von Kleist's
resistance on the road back from
Rostov, toward Mariupol 100. miles
to the west was thus noted, Soviet in-
formants said the great Red push,
still was rolling generally unchecked.
Nazis 41ll Up 1As Allies
To HaltSoviet Army
(By The Associated Press)
BERLIN, Dec. 4.-Powerful and r-
lentless Russian tank, cavalry and
infantry charges on the Rstov and
Donets Basin fronts were reported
tonight in German news dispatches
whkh said the ds iud raled upon
their Italian and Slovak allies in an
effort to halt the Red army.
Swarms of Russian airplanes also
fell on the Axis armies, one dispatch
revealed in saying 100 Red planes had
been shot down.
German planes also were reported
roaring to the aid of their ground
forces. In one unidentified sector
German dive-bombers destroyed 16
Soviet tanks and a Red regiment, a
dispatch said.,
"Mere territory is of no importance
to us," a military spokesman com-
mented on the Russian drives.
"The fightig is a fanatic Russian
effort to recover lost ground. No
sacrifice in men and materials seems
too great for them.
"Our object is to destroy the en-
emy and our advantage is that we
can conduct an elastic defense and
choose the battlefields giving us stra-
tegic superiority"
