Best Copy Available The ECentucky Kernel War World By Dr. Charles M. Knapp 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 her allies. 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 more certain. 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 Danube from Vienna and Czechoslovakia are such German forces as may have been moved there to put up a last desperate resistance in that rugged, mountainous region n. at around Hitler's hide-oCzecho-Slovaki- an ut UNIVERSITY VOLUME XXXV Assignments conference.

'Pop Acquited Of Murder Charge William T. (Pop) McHatton, 81, whose candy and fruit stand is well- known to University students, was acquitted Wednesday on a charge of murder by County Judge W. E Nichols. McHatton had testified in his examining trial that he shot William Slmms, Negro, after Slmms had attempted to rob him on April 5 on South Upper street. According to City Detective Sam Suddith, evidence upheld McHat-ton- 's contention that Sinuni had at- tempted to rob him.

All contributions received in the united national clothing collection will go into a common pool. No donations may be earmarked for a specific country.

Once again have come reports of the Germans ft gunfire against using ground troops. Pockets of German resistance in the Baltic ports and in Berlin and in the mountainous south may hold out for a long time yet, but by and large the mobile armies of Germany will have been destroyed within a couple of weeks, largely through being made prisoners of war.
