RED ARMY FORCES ARE
PLANNING ZERO-HOUR FOR
NAZIS IN EAST PRUSSIA
Apparently Striving To Rip German Defenses
Wide Open from The South Which Will Menace
Enemy Stronghold of Lomza, Vital Communications
By DANIEL DE LUCE
Moscow, Aug. 14—AP—
The zero hour for an all-out Soviet assault on East Prussia appeared to be approaching rapidly today as Russian armies massed in a great threatening arc before the borders of that German province.
Russian units to the south were 15 to 17 miles from the East Prussia frontier, while to the east other Soviet forces were seven to 10 miles away and to the north
from 30 to 35 miles.
Red army forces apparently striving to rip Nazi defenses in East Prussia wide open from the south menaced the enemy stronghold of Lomza, vital communications
center that links embattled Warsaw with the Junker province.
