was scraped out of the bones of the
enslaved masses, farmers and work-
ers: everything which the clique of
the Bolshevist dictators could press
out of the people was used for the
creation of offensive fighting arma-
mnents without limits."
The war reports said Ukraine
fighting flamed between the Bug and
Dniester rivers south of Kiev, with
German speed troops officially de-
clared to have cut deeply again into
retreating Soviet columns.
The sudden shift of power in the
Nazi offensive to the southern end
of the huge complicated front was
reported as another week of the war
slipped by without extensive'terri-
torial gains in other sectors being
reported by the High Command.
Red Divisions Trapped
Yet -further Rea army divisions
were reported trapped east of Smo-
lensk, with German troops method-
ically pressing forward to draw tight
the net along the road to Moscow.
The location of the new southern
drive was given as 155 miles south
of Kiev, the capital of the Ukraine.
It evidently was launched across

the Dniester from Upper 'Bessarabia,
and possibly was aimed at driving a
wedge between Kiev, Russia's third
city, and Odessa, her chief Black Sea
The Germans already have re-
ported advance of their forces across
the lower Dniester. and they were
said today to be bringing their ar-
tillery up to within bombardment
range of Odessa, which is also an
important naval base and only about
30 miles distant from the Dniester.
Coupled with the land attack, the
High Command said warplanes heav-
ily bombed Moscow, and rail junc-

tions in the upper Volga and south-
ern Ukraine.
While the Germans claimed to have
made steady if small territorial ad-
vances in the week just ended, they
were putting emphasis again and
again on the military thesis that the
first objective is to destroy the Soviet
army and not to occupy its cities.
Developing Favorably
This war of material against ma-
terial was held to be developing fa-
vorably for the Germans.
Thus, an unofficial review of the
last seven days said 82,000 prisoners
and enough equipment to outfit a

fair-sized army had been taken.
Captured war material, it was said,
included 737 heavy tanks. 770 field
cannon, 27 complete artillery bat-
teries, 1,210 machine guns, .3,000 mo-
tor vehicles, 1,200 railway cars and
two armored trains.
Destroyed yesterday, another re-
port said, were 129 Soviet planes.
Dienst Aus Deutschland, comment-
ing on this phase, said the tanks
capturede were as many as Soviet
industry can build in two months.
If this keeps up, said the Germans,
the Soviet arsenal soon will be empty.
Intense Counter-Attacks
As to how much material the Ger-
mans are losing, they had little to
say, only remarking that German
commanders, know 'how to conserve
their equipment.
Although the Germans admitted
they had been subjected to intense
Soviet counter-attacks in the Smo-
lensk area- they denied the war had
become one of position, waged from
trenches across a no-man's-land.
In other phases of the war, an
unofficial tabulation gave 166,500
tons of shipping destroyed in a week
in raids along Britain's shipping
lanes, including 16,000 tons sunk or
damRPd vpstarcTdsv nd T'lnt neih1,t.

War Outcome Still Uncertain I

It was an opportunity lost, later mag-
nified when British bombers aiding
Greece against Italy refrained from
attack on the German-occupied Ru-
manian fields in a futile attempt to
avert a full scale Balkan war.
Turning to the Far East, Japan,
now expanding southward by con-
nivance of the "Men of Vichy" into
all Indo-China, faces hardly a less

" nenacing oil problem than does her
Berlin Axis partner. Oil from the
Dutch East Indies is her vital need
as much as oil from Russia is Hitler's.
Yet by word of Dutch authorities
they stand ready and prepared to
ddstroy those wells rather than field
them to Japan.
On both fronts, half the world
apart, the Axis team seems still
threatened with ultimate oil starva-

It wasn't all serious: Vice-President Henry A. Wallace (right in
civilian clothes) and Major Otto M. Jank (left leaning forward), Iowa
ordnance plant commander, burst into frame-shaking laughter at a
bystander's remark, adding a touch of levity to the serious business of
dedicating the $50,000,000 Iowa ordnance plant at Burlington, Iowa.

Nazi trucks in Smolensk: Berlin sources say this picture shows part
of a German truck column passing through a Smolensk street. Ger-
man and Russian reports have both a various times claimed possession
of the Russian city of Smolensk where severe fighting has been taking
place. This photo was sent from Berlin to New York via radio.

Chungking, the Chinese capital, the Navy announced. The 370-ton boat of the Yanktse River patrol was
damaged by bombs which narrowly missed the U.S. embassy. No casualties resulted but the Navy said the
stern superstructure of the craft was damaged slightly.
