Only mighty Notre Dame has de- j feated them. Instead of the man- moth crowd of 10,000 that used to i view the game at Philadelphia, i however, only those living within a i 10-mile radius of West Point are! eligible to purchase the 26,000 tickets available. This wartime transportation restriction was adopted a year ago when the game was played at Annpolis and Navy upset a favored Army team. Army turned up for its prime objective by overwhelming Brown. 59-0. Saturday. Navy was idle. The big news of the weekend was Noire Dame's comback to squeeze past the formidable Iowa Seahawks, 14-13, and Coach Frank Leahy finally admitting it was a championship team. He didn't say so, but by inference he believes his boys should take Great Lakes this week to'become Notre Dame's first unbeaten, untied eleven since Knute Rockne's 1930 aggregation. As expected Notre Dame ran into its toughest opposition of the season, but after trailing the Sea- hawks by 7-0 and again by 13-7 rallied to win on Fred" Earley's accurate kicking for the extra points. Perhaps the inspiration derived from a visit to Rockne's grave before the game helped the boys rise to every occasion. As the players bowed their heads, Leahy said: "Fellows, there was the man who made the Fighting Irish a great tradition. 'Let's not let him down today." In another exciting game Purdue's Boilermakers finished their ;eason unbeaten and untied by put- ing on a great goal line stand in he final minute to defeat Indiana, '-0. The Hoosiers had a first down on the Purdue two, but couldn't nick it over. ^RAILROAD JACK ON HIWAY 4 '' between Russell's store and Hope.

Agnonc, in the inland sector of the Eighth Army front, was captured Sunday by Gen. Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's troops. (The German high command, for its part, said the British had launched an attack "with strong forces" north of the Sangro river against the Nazi "extreme left wing" along the Adriatic coast. The broadcast German communique said, however, that "numerous violent attacks" were halted "and one local dent was scaled off."

All previous references to British activity north of the riv.pr, generally regarded ;. as the! •' : 'rif •lntelc'>efe'r¥fca di . : Go'rmaif to patrol activity,) At the same time, other Eighth Army units chased the enemy from more high ground overlooking Al- dcna from the sbutheast in rugged inland mountain sectors. United States troops attacked and wiped out a German machine gun position northwest of Montaquila, also inland, without loss to themselves. The Allied communique said that less rain fell in the last 24 hours, but the battle front was stil a sea of mud and rivers rendering most operations impossible. Fire Damage at Saenger; Show Delayed The orchestra pitt of the Saenger theater was ruined and the stage suffered some damage at noon today, before a blaze, .apparently catching from two heaters, could be put out by the Fire Department. Extent of the damage could not immediately be determined but the footlights suffered, and the screen was water stained.

The British had previously been forced to evacuate the Dodecanese islands of Cos and Leros, and Ihe Germans announced the recapture oi four smaller islands.

Reds Check Nazi Army, Regain Kiev Initiative London, Nov. 23— (/P) — After nine days of desperate fighting, which Russian battlefronl dispatches said equalled in ferocity that which raged during the siege of Stalingrad, Red army troops were reported today to have regained the initiative in some sectors of the bulge west of Kiev while hammering out new advances in the Dnieper bend and in White Russia. Buttressed by fleets of giant tanks, the Russians smashed powerful Nazi attacks near Koros- lyshcv, 20 miles east of Zhitomir, carpeting the battlefield with Nazi dead and wrecking 80 enemy tanks, a Russian communique said. Besides blasting this new drive on Kiev, Soviet forces repulsed two vicious thrusts near Chcrnyakhov, 10 miles north of Zhitomir, apparently aimed at Korostcn, key rail city straddling the Leningrad-Odessa and liev-Warsaw railways. Field Marshal Fritz von Mannstein, who launched the tremendous new Nazi onslaught to halt the Russian offensive, apparently had little to show for his pains except the city of Zhitomir and a few segments of territory lo the north and east. The Rusian war bulletin announcing his repulse -for the third successive day indicated a possible collapse of the savage Nazi counter-offensive. Other Russian armies, meanwhile, pounded the German lines far to the north and south of the Kiev bulge. In the Rcchitsa area in White Russia, Gen. Conslantin Ro- kossovky's forces struck westward onra 10-mile- front to liberate 30 towns and . villages, kill 800 Nazis and capture eight German" strongholds above Gomel, the Russians announced. The Soviet troops were said to have reached the junction of the Berezina and Dnieper rivers, 15 miles north of Rechitsa, tightening the noose around the key base of Gomel, fall of which appeared but a matter of hours. In the Dnieper bend twin Red army columns were battering their way closer to Krivoi Rog and Niko- pol, Moscow declared. South of Kremenchug, Gen, Nikolai Vatu- tin's armored forces were, reported lo have smashed repeated cOunfer.- drives, killed 1,000, i Germany, wrecked 66 tanks and captured "six strongly fortified defense points. Quantities of war material and prisoners were seized. Front dispatches said this drive had advanced 20 miles on a 30 mile front. Southwest of Dnepropetrovsk, Red army troops launched a surprise night attack to capture a strategic enemy base. Here, the com- munique said, another 60 Germans were slain and 10 tanks smashed. Nazi counter attacks against the Russian bridgehead at Cherkasi were hammered back with heavy loses. There was no mention of activity in the Crimea in the Russian communique.

Officially Revealed Patton Did Strike Soldier but Soon Offered His Full Apology By EDWARD KENNEDY Allied Headquarters, Algiers, Nov. 23 (/!>)— It was disclosed officially today thai Lt. Gen. George S. Patlon, Jr., had apologized lo all officers and men of Ihe Seventh Army for striking a soldier in the Sicilian campaign. At the same time Allied headquarters said thai correspondents might reveal all of the facls they knew of the incident which since last August has been one of the main subjects of discussion among soldiers in this theater. While Patton was not relieved of his command of the Seventh Army and was not given a formal reprimand, he received a castigation from Gen. Dwighl D. Eisenhower such as has seldom been administered to a commander of an army. Today's disclosure came 16 hours after an official headquarters statement saying "Gen. Pal- ®- ton is commanding the Seventh Army, has commanded it since it | he culled the soldier was tictivaled and is continuing to command it. Gen. Patton has never been reprimanded at any time by Gen. Eisenhower or by anyone else in this theater." The story is a strange one —the siorv of a general, whose excel- because he Ihought the soldier was shirking his duly. The incident occurred early in August when the Sicilian campaign was in one of its most crilical periods. Palton visited the evacuation hospital and went among the wounded, trying to cheer them. He palled some on the back, sympathizing with them. Ho then came upon a 24-year-old soldier silling on a cot with his head buried in his hands, weeping. "What's the matter with you?" Patlon asked, according lo persons who were in the hospital tent at the time. The soldier mumbled a reply which was inaudible to the general. Patton repeated his question. "It's my nerves, 1 guess I can't stand shelling," the boy was quoted as replying. Patlon thereupon burst inlo a rage. Employing much profanity, a "coward," "yellow belly," and numerous other epithets, according to those present. He ordered Ihe soldier back to the front. The scene attracled several per- lence is admitted by all, who in the heat of the battle lost his temper and later admitted he was wrong and made amends. The incident consisted of this, according to eyewitnesses: Gen. Putton slapped a shell- soldier in a tvospilul tent sons, including the commanding officer of Ihe hospital, the doctor who had admitted the soldier and a nurse. In a fit of fury in which lie expressed sympathy for men really wounded but made it plain that he did not believe that the soldier be(Continued on Page TUrcs) scribed in six words which supplied no details as lo lime or op- posilion — "we have landed on Abemama atol" — bul there were sufficient implimations in reports on Makin and Tarawa to make clear the batlle there is a bloody one. On Tarawa, which is 80 miles northwest of Abemama, and on Makin, still farther north, both pounded from the air and l}ie sea prior lo Ihe invasion, "our Iroops have improved their positions . . . but are still encountering considerable ground resistance." Such resistance is being met under conditions which afford little natural protection for either side. It is a matter of conquer-or- die. (These operations were integrated wilh others to the southwest In the Solomons the opposing air- forces exchanged blows around the American beachhead on Bougainville; on the Huon peninsula of New Guinea, Australians and tanks bored to within half a mile of Japanese plateau defenses in the jungles which are strategic because they overlook the Allied positions.) Such eagerly-awaited deatils as the extenl of Ihe beachheads slill were lacking bul the fact the operations continued to make progress and were being expanded was viewed as encouraging. The invest- 1 mem of the Gilberts, a group of more than 15 alolls embracing 166 square miles, would push the Allies more than 70 miles northwest of the Ellicc islands and place a menacing flanking force just south of the Marshall^. Admiral Nio made known that the eldest son of the president, Lt. Col. James Roosevelt, had returned to.Makim where he first stormed ashore in August, 1942, wilh marines who wiped out ils Japanese defenders during a brief, surprise raid.

In addition, he urged the legislators in a message to "enact without delay" a measure setting up an unemployment insurance system for the Merchant Marine. "The Congress will agree, I am sure," Mr. Roosevelt said, "that, this time, we must have plans and legislation ready for our returning veterans instead of waiting until the last moment. It will give notice to our armed forces that the people back home do not propose to let them down." The steps which he specifically requested of Congress today were part of a program of minimum assistance for those serving their country which the president outlined in a radio address to the nation last July. This time he ommit- ted, however, a proposal he made then that persons in the Merchant Marine be given mustering-cut pay. For those in the armed forces, he said, the mustering-cut pay should be uniform and reasonable and should be paid in monthly installments, rather than in a lump sum. at the time of honorable discharge or return to inactive duty. The chief executive mentioned no definite amount, leaving that for Congress to determine. For service personnel unable to get jobs within a reasonable time after they become civilians again. Mr. Roosevelt said, "unemployment allowances should be provided until they can reasonably be absorbed by private industry." Asserting that state unemployment insurance laws give inadequate coverage to members of the armed forces, the president said that about half of them would have no protection whatsoever when they doff their uniforms. Benefits for others will vary widely and in many instances will be inadequate, he said, so Congress ought to set up a uniform system of allowances, with a fixed rate of benefit for a fixed period of time.

The only concession Allies Planning Closer Unity With Russia^ By JOHN M. HIGHTOWER Washington, Nov. 23 — (/P) — Plans are being completed for clos est coordination between the Rus> sian high command in Moscow and the Anglo-American supreme staff to be headed by General George C. Marshall in London. Perfection of these plans, which may be followed by formal announcement of Marshall's appointment to the unprecedented • Allied leadership position, is one of the major current accomplishments in United Nations measures for the global prosecution of the war. Another accomplishment is be- ieved to be an impending action to iring China more fully into the 'orefronl of United Nations work, .hereby emphasizing the nature of Allied world organization as outlined by the recent Moscow con- 'erence. This impending development may take the form of participation by Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek in the widely reported — but nowhere confirmed — meeting of President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill and Premier Stalin. Or it may lead to a get together among Chinese, British and American leaders following the long-heralded pow-pow of the European big three. The fact that China signed the four-pact agreement at Moscow is taken here as evidence that Stalin possibly would not mind going into a conference with Chiang as well By ROBERT, STRUDEVANT London, Nov. 23 (XP)— In the, heaviest aerial bombardment 'in' history, the RAF enguled Berlin>J last night with fire and devastating' ^ explosives thundered down from 1,000 bombers.

To date, however, the Russians have been most scrupulous about joining Ihe Chinese in anything other than broad political agreements and if this policy still prevails, or if physical difficulties prevent a big four meeting, a succes sion of big three meetings seems likely. Other business is believed to include the political front as wel as the military, and there is some possibility that out of the conference may come a definition of what unconditional surrender would mean to the German people.
