THE PRESIDE NCT OF THE
CNITED STATES: This week the
American people are still trying to
adjust themselves to the fact that
It Is Harry S. Truman and not
Franklin D. Roosevelt who Is president of the United States. President Roosevelt's death last week
was a great shock not only to this
nation but to all those who were
The only President to have been
elected four times to the presidency
was the only President most of our
fighting men. consciously, had ever
known. That President also was the
only President of the United States
whom most foreign statesmen had
ever negotiated with personally.
Thus there has been both nationwide mourning and world-wid- e
questioning of the future policies of
the American government.
It is highly improbable that there
will be any material deviation from
the strategy which long has been
planned by the Army and the Navy
for the prosecution of the wars to
successful conclusions. That there
may be changes In the personnel of
the State Department which must
conduct our foreign relations from
now on is almost as likely. That
ongress, through the Senate, will
exercise far more influence upon
the shaping of foreign policy is even
That the death of President
Roosevelt will affect the nation's
policies must be conceded, but it Is
not so easy as some commentators
would make it to anticipate what
these differences will prove to be.
THE WAR IX EUROPE: American
troops now stand practically as close
to Berlin as the Russians who have
been stalled for many weeks on the
Oder River line. Units of the American Ninth Army have established
bridgeheads across the Elbe, at several places, according to the latest
rumors coming from Sweden.
Certain it is that the First and
Third Armies have cut across the
last remaining main highways con-
necting the Baltic plain with the
mountainous south of Germany and
Austria and have almost reached the
frontier and a
juncture with the Russian forces
within that country. Thus the German forces have been divided by
the Allied drive across central Germany from the Rhine to the Elbe.
They have been driven back into
pockets against the North and the
Baltic seas, into the defenses of
the ports of Emden, Bremen and
Hamburg, as they were into the
Atlantic ports of France. Cut off
and now surrounded on the north
by the drives of the First and Third
U. S. Armies and on the west by
the First French Army and on the
east by the Russians driving up the
