LONDON, Wednesday, Jan. 31-
The First White Russian Army thrust
within 73 miles of Berlin yesterday
when it captured the Brandenburg
province town of Stolzenberg in a
20-mile dash down the valley of the
Netze river from Driesen.
In Regular Communique!
The capture of Stolzenberg was
announced in the regular nightly
communique broadcast from Moscow,
which made no point of the fact that

it represented the Russians' closest
approach to the Nazi capital.
Early today, the Moscow radio an-
nounced that the Red Army was less
than 50 miles from Stettin, Berlin's
port on the baltic. Stolzenberg is
52 miles southeast of Stettin.
German accounts of fighting on the
east front Tuesday stressed Marshal
Gregory K. Zhukov's gains on his
front farther south in the area west
of Poznan and directly east of Berlin.

In this sector, the Germans s
Zhukov had come within 80 m
of Berlin.
Kustrin Threatened

trin, an important rail center
miles east of Berlin was threat

east. With the penetration far

San Narciso and San Antonio to seize
five miles of beachhead 60 air miles
northwest of Manila, took an airfield
at San Marcelino in their quick drive
to seal the fate of the Japanese re-
treating to Bataan and to capture
the vital Subic Bay Naval Base.
Not a man was lost in the amphi-
bious operation, which caught the
Japanese completely by surprise.
Not a Japanese gun nor plane at-
tempted to interfere or even ob-
serve as the 38th and 24th Division
troops hit the Zambales coast
beaches lined with flag-waving,
cheering Filipinos.
The American flag, planted by:Fili-
pinos, was so clearly visible on the
Subic Bay shoreline as-the convoy of
more than 100 vessels approached
that Rear Adm. Arthur Struble call-
ed off the customary pre-landing
bombardment. He was assured there
were no Japanese ashore, and had
not been for a long time.
The Yanks moved swiftly to
within 10 miles of the big Olongapo
Naval Base on Subic Bay.
The airfield was the 24th which
Yank forces have captured on Lu-
zon since the Sixth Army opened
the invasion of Luzon Jan. 9 at
Lingayen Gulf.
The MacArthur move to seal off
Bataan meant a bid to avoid a re-
enactment by Nipponese forces of Lt.
Gen. Tomoyuki Yamashita of the
long fight put up on that same rug-
ged peninsula from January to April,
1942 by Americans and Filipinos. It
came at a time when Japanese ele-
ments which abandoned San Fernan-
do Sunday were reported fleeing
southwest from there into Bataan.

40 tons of bombs were dropped on
oft-hit Iwo Jima in the Volcano
Islands 750 miles south of Tokyo

announced today.
An explosion was observed on an
airstrip and several fires were start-

WSSF Group
To Organize
Workers Will Plan
For Drive Friday
Representatives of campus organi-
zations and all others interested in
canvassing funds for the World Stu-
dent Service Fund drive to begin on
campus next week are urged to at-
tend a meeting directed by Miss
Alexandra Feldmahn, Assistant Ex-
ecutive Secretary of the WSSF, at
8 p.m. tomorrow in the basement
auditorium of Lane Hall, George
Herman, chairman of the drive an-
nounced yesterday.
Miss Feldmahn To Speak
"The War Stricken Student" will
be discussed by Miss Feldmahn in an
address introducing the drive to
campus at 8 p.m. Friday at Hill Aud-
itorium. .
The plight of students crowded in
prisonand internment camps and
of students living strange lives in
strange lands as refugees; the suffer-
ing of students starving in occupied
lands whose universities have been
closed, but where they continue to
study behind drawn shades will be
discussed in Miss Feldmahn's address
Friday. The hope that enters the
students' lives in the realization that
they- have not been forgotten, when
they receive help from other lands,
will also be described.
'Something To Do'
She will tell how the hope that
comes with having something to do
saves many of our captured service-
men from insanity.
The University of Michigan has
been asked to contribute $4,000 of
the $500,000 total to come from all
United States colleges and universi-
ties. In 1918, when fewer students
were attending universities, the na-
tionwide quota was $1,500,000.
Miss M avior

father was the minister. She and

ter played' the organ.

cialized in home economics, dress
designing, decorating, and training
for the teaching profession.
She became a member of Hamp-
ton's 120 voice choir, and was one of
the 40 members chosen to tour the
United States, and later England,
