Big Leagues to Take Cream of Minor Leagues Chicago. Nov. 2 (/P) — The minor league baseball orchards apparently grew a bumper crop of lemons in 1943. That the quality of big league talent available was limited was indicated yesterday at the annual drnft meeting of major league baseball representatives. They completed their business ot taking the best of the minor league pickings in 20 minutes. The market in ball players was reported decidedly dull, and although 15 players from the minor circuits were picked up in the raffle at a total outlay ot $110.000. by eight elubs, many have had previous trials in the big time. Only 12 of the 16 big league clubs were represented at the meeting with Commissioner K. M. Landis und four of them — Cincinnati, Pittsburgh. Cleveland and the Chicago Cubs — did not file player claims. The four clubs not represented did not make any bids by mail, indicating they were ready to rely on their 1943 lineups for the third season of wartime baseball The average number of players drafted in past years was about 20, but the list of 15 might be enlarged, the clubs having three days PARACHUTING TO VICTORY AT LAE Lost, Strayed or Stolen BLACK HORSE MULE.

Gen. Fcodor Tolbukhin's cossacks were declared in Moscow dispatches today to be cleaning up swiftly the last 30 miles remaining before Kherson at the mouth of the Dnie- per estuary on the Black Sea. Thc retreating Germans showed signs of demoralizalion as Ihe Red Army swcpl wcsl of Ihe sealed off Crimea where Ihe Germans say Ihey still have strong forces. Forty miles were covered in a single day's sweep beyond captured Pcrc- kop, last entrance to thc Black Sea peninsula from the north. The German communique termed the reported Russian invasion of thc fine.*--"- ' '-uth of I ,h "-.. -...;.nj Burning nead" and asserted lhat thc Russian holding "was-further compressed despite; embittered resistance." >.,Moscow 1 has 'ribi confirmed 'the .landing. The communique, heard from radio Berlin by thc Associated Press, spoke in vague terms of heavy fighting against strong Russian tank and infantry forces at the northern entrance of thc Crimea, "in thc area east of Kherson and in the big Dnieper bend." Thc focus of bailie in the Dnie- per bend was al Ihe great iron and rail center of Krivoi Rog, 120 miles north of the Crimea. There the Germans persisted in counterattacks in a desperate effort to prevent Ihc northern army of a vast Russian pincers from snapping shul a second dealh trap on scores of Ihou- sands of Nazis. By German account, Ihe Russians also were attacking soulheasl and norlh of Ihe partially surrounded Ukrainian capital of Kiev and the Velikie Luki area in the north where the Russian winter already has laid a white blankel of snow on Ihe balllefields. The Germans said Ihey sank three Soviet motor torpedo boats in the Gulf of Finland. Thc heaviest fighting was in the Ukraine and there the charging Russians were within 104 airline miles of Odessa and 120 airline miles of Rumania. Nikolaev, at thc mouth of the Bug river 35 miles west of Kher- son, and thc southern anchor of Ihe Bug river defense system toward which Ihe Germans are fleeing, seemingly was Ihe nexl major ob- jcclive of Ihe fighting Soviel Army in its great drive to collapse Ihe organizcd American labor than all administrations other combined. Bul Ihe lhanks of lilllc men suddenly clolhcd wilh arbilrary power is lo embarrass Ihe admin- islration by stopping the mining of war-essential coal simply to force an increase in wages. Following failure of the Union Policy Committee to act, the government seized thc mines the first of the week and gave the miners until today to get back to their jobs —but up to 2 o'clock this afternoon (Wednesday) there was every indication thai thc rank and file of Ihe men aimed lo defy Ihe government. This is running perilously close to conspiracy. The nation, long ago fed up with sporadic strikes, recognizes the mine walkout for just what it is—a plot by union leaders covering a third of the American states. Men organized as long as the miners have been do nol walk oul simultaneously in more than a dozen states without a pretly clear hint from na'ional and districl officers. Regardless what John L. Lewis and his districl leaders tell thc government the actions of the rank-: and .file spell defiance—and in wartime the same compulsions that send men oul ot civilian life inlo uniform arc applicable lo in- cluslrial employes suspected of putting their own welfare ahead of the nation's. The government will crack down this lime—.because lo win thc war America's industries must have coal. But so far as thc New Deal'iS political future is concerned it ht(fc already temporized too Idng.! Thtj^ was evidence of this in the con- grcssionali elections|ia year ago— !evidence*:-that.:\v'£s! relhipiicpd in 'yesterday's 1 -' stato'i electiohs.i New York slate went Republican by a quarter-million votes, New Jersey by two-lo-one—and in Kentucky thc Republicans trailed the Democrats for governor by only 4,000 votes. Thc same common people who buill up Ihc New Deal's lowering edifice of bureaucracy and delegated power are turning against it —and at thc same place, thc polls. High Court Studies Ripple Marriage (Little Rock, Nov. 3 (/P) • One phase of the litigation growing out of the marriage of Mrs. Mary Wcl- day to William Rippc, wealthy 77- year-old retired farmer, was before the Arkansas Supreme Court today. Orval Suiter, administrator of St. Louis County, Mo., and Rippe's guardian, asked the high tribunal to set aside a Randolph Chancery Courl decree allowing Mrs. Rippe lemporary maintenance and attorneys' fees. The Rippes were married in Po- cahontns May 22. Shortly afterwards Sutler brought kidnaping charges against Mrs. Rippe, 60, in St. Louis, claiming that Rippc hac been declared incompetent and that Mrs. Rippe had taken him from a SI. Louis sanitarium and married him without permission of his guardian. Sutler also brought suit for annulment of the marriage and Ihis action is pending in Randolph Chancery Court. 460,000 Idle Miners Defy Work Order -Washington Occupation of Germany for Long Period By FLORA LEWIS Washington, Nov. 3 (/P)— Complete long-term military occupation of Germany and destruction of all major German armaments industries after the war were among the possibilities mentioned in speculation here today on what was decided at the Moscow conference. It is known the United States delegation favored a plan to occupy all the larger cilies in Germany and lo paralyze the German wai potential. How far the foreign minislers reached definile agreemenl pi those points has not been dis closed, but the" communique issuec at conclusion of their meeting sai" the question of Germany's futur had been laken up.

When to deal with and whethe By The Associated Press Washington, Nov. 3 — Presidenl Roosevell's directive to the nation's coal miners to return today to their jobs in the slruck workings, now under government seizure, was generally ignored in the major producing states this morning. The quiel suspension of aclivily, begun Iwo weeks ago in scallered wildcal walkouts slemming from onlinued absence of a working onlract, spread to an estimated 60,000 hard and soft coal miners s conferences looking to some etllement went forward here be- ween United Mine Workers presi- ent, John L. Lewis and Interior secretary Ickes, again designated as federal overseer of the pils. An early morning survey in 'ennsylvania, a top producer of nlhracitc and bituminous coal, showed no signs of a back-to-work •novement in response to the pres dent's appeal. Only a few soft coal mines were reported working in western Pennsylvania, but Byror -I. Canon, executive secretary ol the Operators' Association, suggested the failure of general resumptions to develop might be due in part .to delays in receipt of.form- al notices of government seizure. In West Virginia, there were no early reports of any mine crews going back to the pits in 600 commercial operations, although a few non-union mines and some strip mines were turning out some small amounts of coal.

Japanese Hint at Big Naval Fight for Rabaul —War in Pacific Southwest Pacific Allied headquarters, Nov. 3 —(/P)— Th« Japanese, whose Bougainvill air bases were paralyzed by naval guns and plane bombs as the Allies invaded that last big Solomons island of the enemy, already" have hinted all naval and air battles to come in the show down struggle before Rabaul. General MacArthur's headquarters said today that, after the marines stormed ashore on Bougainville's west coast Monday at Dawn to capture Empress Augusta bay, a Japanese cruiser and destroyer force was intercepted Monday night, fought and turned back by Allied warships before they could reach the invasion scene. Headquarters added complete reports were awaited on the battle which might go far toward determining the ability of the Allied landing force to control Bougainville's west coast., It also was disclosed that, after the naval battle, Japanese planes attacked the Allied warships and 784 Enemy Plones Downed by Yonks London, Nov. 3 (/P) United Slates heavy bombers based in Britain shot down 784 enemy planes in October at the rate of more than 100 for every day they operated — the USAAF monthly repdrt disclosed.

American losses through enemy action, including ground defenses, Take Mountain Anchor/May Trap Large Force 1 —•Europe were 176 bombers. The figure of better than four and a half enemy planes for every heavy bomber lost was highly significant in light of the fact that October was a month in which the heavies delivered some of their hardest blows on Nazi war production.

The Treasury Japs have been driven into Ihe jungles. On Choiseul, American forces have advanced four miles from their beachhead on the southwest coast.

Behind his advance elements, Clark moved up artillery which, with benefil of Ihe full observa- lion of Ihe Garigliano valley, could easily shell any enemy forces remaining on Ihe west side of Massico ridge along the sea coast. The valley between the north i edge of Massico and San Croce mountains is only nine miles from the Gulf of Gaeta, and an Allied officer declared Ihe Nazis, who pre^ -. viously had concenlraled many guns belween Ihe western slopes,: and Ihe sea, "are obviously confronted wilh Ihe necessily of with- •* drawing or facing annihilation." Cracking of this strong mountain line was described as "the breaking of one more of Rome's outer defenses." To reach favorable new mountain positions, the Germans would have to pull back across the Garigliano to the high Aurunci mountains be^ hind Minturno, 14 miles from the present batlle area. There is every indication, however, the Nazis will fight a slow, stubborn rear-guard action before relinquishing any part of the Garigliano valley. Severe and bloody fighting marked the Fifth Army gains. Nazi tanks went into action in the upper Volturno area, but failed to dent the salient the Americans thrust into the enemy lines there. The Canadian? and British crossing the Trigno also met heavy opposition, but this was countered by effective use of British artillery. In their fresh stab capturing Pratella and Gallo, the Americans also chased the enenay from the important mountain town of Vairano and the little villages of Pra'a, Praia Sannila, Ciarpella, Corricella, Greci, Pozzo, and Marzanella They also won a valuable crossing at Scafa Di Vairano over the upper Volturno. Although there was no formal announcement of their capture, the Fifth's drive onto Massico ridge and San Croce mountain presumably carried these troops through the towns of Caianello, Furnolo, Santa Guilinana, Casale, Rocca- monfini, Torano Fontanelle, and many smaller villages. It was disclosed officially the Canadian three rivers tank regiment and Irish Guards brigade carried out the amphibious landing at Termpli early in O.ctober on the Adriatic coast that caught the Germans by surprise and sent them reeling b,ack toward their present Trigno river line.
