Reds Make Stalingrad Too Tough Hitler May Attack Leningrad, Grozny Oil Fields Next (By The Associated Press) The frightful siege of Stalingrad simmered down to desultory air and artillery action Sunday and it ap- peared that the German army was admitting tacitly its failure to take the Volga city as Hitler promised emphatically 12 days ago. The Soviet midnight communi- que said "German tanks and in- fantry, which during the last few days suffered tremendous losses, showed no activity" inside Stalin- grad, while even to the northwest of the city fighting was localized and obviously on a small scale. Seelc Oil Fields The Germans seemed to be turn- ing their main attention to their drive along the northern rim of the Caucasus mountains, in an ef- fort to reach the Grozny oil fields and perhaps to secure for them- selves the western shore of the Caspian Sea. The Russians told of much action in the Mozdok area, including the repulse of five at- tacks in a single day, and the Ger- mans said large concentrations of their air force had bombed Groz- ny day and night and had wrought great destruction. The Russians said the fighting inside Stalingrad was confined to artillery and mortar duels, and in, j this kind of give and take the i Russians were confident they could I more than hold their own for a'r- tillery is the Red army's "god of war." The battle was not over, for the Germans were reported bringing up new troop concentrations. But !the stolid Russians defenses had 'ground to bits so many thousands [of the finest German shock troops land machines that the Nazi army I seemed obviously to have had enough for now of the metal from i Russian guns. Germany's Alibi German propaganda started the overture to failure last week; since then the high command he_3 belittled the epic battle at Stalin- Igrad. i The apology went like this: The j German objectives already had been i reached, the center of the city was .taken and the Volga in effect was :cut. Hence it no longer was neces- ,sary to sacrifice precious lives fiphting for a worthless city. Ar- tillery and dive bombers would finish the destruction. I Emphasis seemed to be shifting :to the Caucasus, for the Russians jsaid fresh tanks and troops have Icome from other fronts to join the battle. But in the major Mozdok and Novorossisk areas no German I gains were registered. I German concentrations likewise 'have been reported gathering near Leningrad, where winter is de- scending rapidly.
