Utah Democrats Gather for Meet Salt Lake City -- (U2.) -- Utah of being cut off as American ad- vance units approach the Via Casi- lina to his rear. It seems increasingly probable that unless Kesselring gets imme- diate reinforcements he will not be able to make an adequate stand in the Alban hills nor to withdraw without having large bodies of his troops cut to pieces. Kesselring used almost the last of his reserves in a vain effort to prevent his right and left wings from being folded back at the Tar. raclna and Cassino ends of the so- called Adolf Hitler line. Now the Allied Fifth army has united its front and with the Eighth is closing in on him from threddirections. Granted that the Germans are not prepared to draw troops from the west, there still is the possi- bilRy of senilng reinforcements from northern. Italy or the Yugo- slavian frontier. It seems remote, however, and it is doubtful that they could arrive in time, so swift is the AJlled advance. Kesselring' s retreat is complicat- ed by Allied air supremacy which enables bombers and fighters to rake the roadways with a constant hail of fire. They must be causing great disruption if figures mean anything--l,450 vehicles destroyed and 1,200 damaged in the past three days. The battle of annihilation which the Allied command seeks may yet be fought in the hills below.R i age, 100 prisoners of war were assigned by Brig. Gen. Clarence H.
