Fighting, 45th (Continued From Page One) U.S. Planes Hit Close to Jap Mainland New York, Nov. 26 (/P) Allied planes struck within about 650 •niles of the Japanese homeland yesterday when approximately 20 alanes raided Shlnchiku port city on the northwest coast of Formosa, the Tokyo radio said today. The raid, unconfirmed by any Al 1 lied source. presumably was launched from Allied bases within :hina. The broadcast claimed three of the raiders were shot down by Japanese naval fighters. The island of Formosa, wrested from the Chinese in 1895,. lies 90 miles off the east coast of China some 200 miles north of the Philip pine islands, and only a little more than 650 miles southwest of Kyu shu, southernmost island in th Japanese home group. Formosa was first, raided by seven Chinese planes Feb. 23, 1938 in the first air attack in history, on I Japanese territory.' Eight death and 23 injuries, in addition to prop erty damage, were reported to lave resulted. Although the island had an air raid scare'on ' Dec. 14, 1941, one week after Pearl'Harbor, and was rumored in Chungking to have been raided by Allied planes on Aug. 12, 19.42, yesterday's raid appears to have been .the first made on the island since the United States entered the war.

Germans Busy Looking for Peace Terms Washington, Nov. 26 (JP)— Reports that Pope Pius XII had' undertaken tp mediate between Germany and the Allies were coupled with a statement by Senator Downey (D-Galif) of the Military Affairs Committee today that- influential Germans are trying to find a way to surrender.

Patton Jr. in Sicily, has been in action with the Fifth Army in Italy, it was announced today as Allied units beat off enemy counterattacks along a generally unchanged front. , The impact of the "Fight 45th," one of the most colorful divisions in the American army, helped roll back the German tide when the Salerno bridgehead appeared likely to be overrun in the early critical period after the first landing, it was disclosed. The divsion, made up largely of troops from Colorado, Oklahoma and .New Mexico with a sprinkling from a rtUrnber of eastern and more than 1,000 Southwest Indians is rated in army circles as one of the toughest and hardest hitting outfits under the flag. It made its battle debut in an amphibious assault against Sicily after only a brief pause in North Africa. The German air forces joined ground forces in determined attacks yesterday against British Eighth Army forces now securely entrenched in the bridgehead carved from the winter defense line across the flooded Sangro near Italy's Adriatic shore.

American Lieutenant Reports From Conquest of Gilberts By RAY COLL, JR. Representing the Combined U. S. Press-Distributed By The Associated Press Hickam Field, Oahu, Hawaii, Nov. 20 iDelaycd) A lieutenant wounded by a sword-swinging Jap- inese officer described the three- day battle of Mnkin island today n these terse words: "We killed every Jap in sight." The U. S. 27th division sent its first wounded from Makin in the Gilberts back to Oahu by air ovac nation transport' today. I came with them. These men had a story to tell that was filled with typical Japanese hysterical, fanatical dc tense of the island they had held nearly two years and on which we landed Nov." 20.

Allied planes hacked at the enemy just back of the line. Despite the daylong enemy onslaughts the Eighth Army troops improved their positions, it was an nounced, officially. Thanksgiving Day activity on the Fifth Army front on the western half of the line was limited to two violent 15-minutes artillery bom bardments against targets behind the enemy's lines as well as normal patrolling. While rain continued to fall anc mist reduced visibility throughout the battle area; an air force statement declared persistent bombing had kept closed to traffic for a month the three main railways Featured Nightly t Select Qytters * €hoj«« Steaks - -' * Chicken • Fried Potatoes Sqlqd CHECKERED CAFE It's Safe to Be Hungry running down the Italian peninsula to the battlefront. Attempts at repair have been frustrated in many cases by follow- up attack, the statement said, and as a result only a network of subsidiary lines incapable of heavy traffic is available to the Germans. The three main rail lines knocked out, in the order of their importr ance, are the Central Apennine route from Bologna Ihrough Florence to Rome, the west coast line through Genoa and Leghorn to Rome, and the east coast track from, Bologna through Rimini and Ancona to Pekcara. Defying bad weather conditions, American and British light and fighter - bombers raked enemy strong points along the Sangro river from the town of Casoli, 15 miles inland, to the Adriatic in support of the Eighth Army holdings ts bridgehead. "Prisoners taken have confirmed he demoralizing effect of the recent bombing of front line posir tions," an air force statement said. Areas around Lanciano and Fossacesia, a short distance behind this front, were particularly Hit. In long-range operations, American Mitchells bombed the Adriatic Port of Ancona and RAF Spitfires crossed the sea to strafe German vehicles near Dubrovnik, Yugoslavia. A statement from Lt. Gen. Carl A. Spaatz' air command reviewing recent heavy bomber operations noted "Flying Fortresses and Lib erators of Maj. Gen. James H. Doo little's Strategic Air Force already have made a beginning against the targels lhat hurt the enemy most," citing raids into Germany, Australia, Northern Italy, Southern France and the Balkans. "This partly has been possible because of the absence of enemy fighter strength in Italy," the statement added. "Fighter bases now available in Italy .permitted the Tactical Air Force to sweep the skies of many fighter aircraft that otherwise would have harassed our bombers on the way to and from the targets." In September and October 360 shot out of the sky, the review said. Flying Fortresses alone shot down 140. The Strategic Air Force's losses were 74 planes. The bombers sank four ships tolaling 32,00 tons in the period. American heavy bombers dropped 20,000 tons of bombs in the Iwo months. Gen. Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's forces had crossed the most formidable obstacle yet i,n forcing Ihe Sangro, but still were con- ironted by difficult enemy positions in the hills ringing the valley.

QRAIN AND PROVISIONS Chicago, Nov. 26 WP)— Prices of grains dropped sharply today on a variety of unfavorable news developments, chief of which was approval, by the House Ways and Means comitmtee of a resolution to suspend for 90 days all import duties on grains brought into this country for livestock and poultry eeding. Rye bore Ihe brunt of selling, falling more than 2 cents, but other grains also showed wide declines. the Holy Sity, There was on confirmation of his reported mediation efforts from the diplomatic or church circles. The problem of eliminating Hitler and his associates was described by Downey as one of the prime difficulties in the German surrender attempts. In arguing against the draft of fathers, Downey previously had predicted Germany would collapse next Ap.ril. "For us to continue to draft men we can't use before 1945 'or '46," he declared, "is wasteful of our manpower." A Quarter of Berlin Razed by Bombings By JOHN H. COLBURN Stockholm, Nov. 26 (JP)— The Stockholm newspaper Tidningen said today it learned German officials had admitted a fourth of Berlin was destroyed in the RAF's concentrated attacks Monday and Tuesday nights, The officials refused for military reasons to specify any wrecked areas, the newspaper said, but two Swedish eyewitnesses, one an engineer and the other a military explosives expert, said damage was largely located in the city's center. The engineer, Sund Lundquist, an official of Ihe Swedish civilian defense organizalion, and the explosives expert, Maj. Olof Nord- zell, said upon arrival in Sweden: "Some few houses still are left j .ntacl among Ihe ruins. We would say destruction in the center-of the city runs between 50 and 100. percent." Censored reports received over crippled communication lines from neutral correspondents and accounts from eyewitnesses gave this highlight picture of conditions in Berlin: No bread or milk for sale Thursday in shops; crowds waiting fruitlessly in front of shops for supplies; thousands of workers laboring night and day to clear the streels and get traffic in opera- lion; many homeless people sleeping at nights in the debris-littered streets; firemen so busy they have been unable to dig into ruined air raid shelters for bodies. Lundquist added: "I would say that in the center of.the city about .every 10th or 15th building was hit by a bomb and that other buildings around that were damaged by incendiary bombs. "One thing is certain, gilost of the damage was caused by incen Women Weaker— Not in This Case Norfolk, Va. —(/P)— The weaker sex? Mrs. Ella Slade and Mrs. M. A.

The latesl altack on Germany coincided with only a vestige, of the Nazis' promised reprisals for Ihe Berlin bombinls. This was a small-scale incursion which caused a short alert in London and little else. The air ministry communique said mines also were laid in enemy waters last night. .

However, at Ihis lasl meeting we King George Sees Victory Next Year London, Nov. 24 (IP) —King George VI, opening a new session of parliament, confidently told the House of Commons today "in the fourth year of the war the forces of the United Nations have assumed the offensive in all theaters and in the coming year we shall, with God's help, be able to bear upon the enemy a still greater weight of uttnck." The now session is the ninth since the present Commons wus elected in November, 1935. The current parliament is the longest- lived in Britain's history. "With the growing help of our great American ally and together with the other United Nations we shal go forward with confidence in our cause until we have delivered the peoples of the world from the fear of the aggressor," the king said. * Reviewing the Allies' forward strides during the past year he recalled: ,," Tnc enem y has been cast out of Africa; freedom has been brought to Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica, and m Italy our forces and those of our American ally now are engaging the enemy on the mainland of Europe. "On his eastern front the enemy has given ground before the massive and unrelenting advance of the Russian armies, whose magnificent achievements we have watched with ever-deepening admiration." Turning to the conquered nations of Europe the sovereign declared they "are everywhere preparing to throw off the yoke of the oppressor, and we shall continue to afford them such help and encouragement as lies within our power." King George's speech . opening the new session of parliament was similar in optimistic content to his prorogation address closing the old session yesterday, and which was withheld from publication until today. The king, accompanied by Queen Elizabeth, personally opened the new parliament. The ceremony took place in the king's robing room, where the House of Lords has met since the House of Commons chamber was demolished by German bombs in 1941. The peers, in somber morning dress, relieved by a sprinkling of service uniforms, crowded the floor, while members of the lower house with their wives and relatives filled the public galleries.

Foreword to the second version: "Arabia, the Red Sea, and the Suez Canal, all links in the first and perhaps still the most important short-cut in history . . ." They're using Reinhold's backgrounds.

Interested persons should make inquiry on Saturday, November. 27, from 9 a. rn. to 12 a. m. at the County Court Room. Security Pay to Demobilized Soldiers, Plan Washington, Nov. 26 '(IF)— Bills were introduced in both Houses of Congress today providing unemployment insurance of from $15 to $25 a week, and social security for America's servicemen and service women. Earlier, Chairman May (D-Ky), of the House Military Committee had promised swift committee action on a bill he plans to introduce which would provide $30 in mustering-out pay for those holding ranks no higher than army captain or navy lieutenant, senior grade. The benefits were asked by President Roosevelt, in a message to Congress this week. The federal unemployment payments, continuing up to 52 weeks if the serviceman remains unemployed that long after his discharge, would supplement existing state unemployment insurance benefits. No payments would be made however, for any period in which'the serviceman receives federal mustering-out pay or educational allowances. Identical bills were introduced jointly in the Senate by Senators Wagner (D-NY), George (D-Ga) and Clark (D-Mo) and in the House by Chairman Doughton (D-NC) of the Ways and Means Committee. Calling for prompt congressional consideration of tTie legislation. Senator Wagner said about 70,000 men have been demobilized since Pearl Harbor and that, in addition, "cases are increasing where the widows and dependents of men killed in action have lost their rights to survivors' insurance under social security, because the servicemen's credits have been impaired by their absence from civilian employment." . Wagner said it was impossible to forecast the cost of the proposed benefits but that "by any reasonable estimate the cost will not exceed our cost of running the war for about two weeks during the present fiscal year." A rough esti mate would be around $4,000,000 000. Here is a summation of the main provisions of the bills: Unemployment insurance :$15 a week for a single man or woman, $5 addition for a dependent wife and $2.50 additional for each dependent child up to a maximum o: $25|.a week. Benefits would be paid through the social security board cooperating .with, state : unemploy- incnt : .,age'ncies. , '.Applicants would be required to register with public employment offices and accepl "suitable" employment when it was offered. Payments up to a maximum of 52 weeks would be made in a 15-months period after honorable discharge. Age and survivors' insurance credits for military service would be related to a uniform wage base of S1.60 per month, similar to provisions of the Railroad Retirement Act. The government would appropriate sums equivalent to the employer and employee tax contribution. Grade crossing accidents took a toll of 1,772 lives in the U. S in 1942. It is estimated the African and Sicilian campaigns alono cost the Germans 280,000 casualties. There were 4,400 accidental deaths of agricultural workers in the United Stn1.es in 194? NEW SAENGER Fridoy - Saturday Yiyr Hiart Will T«H Y»u ' Alan Micheh C.Aubre/ § [CURTIS • MORGAN • SMITH | and ROY ROGERS in Ruth Pickard in Concert Friday, Dec. 3 Ruth Pickard,'.^lented concert pianist, is to be presented in a recital by the Friday Music club at the High School auditorium Friday, December 3 at 8:15,o'clock. Mrs. Pickard has had wide experience as a recitalist since her early youth. She has studied extensively berth In this country and abroad. After graduating with high honors from the Institute of Musical Art in New York City, receiving a scholarship for. general excellence, she continued special study with Charles Haubiel,. noted composer* pianist. For several years she held a scholarship from the Juilliar'd School of Music for study in the Master Class of Carl Friedberg, internationally known as a concert pianist and teacher, and spent some time in Germany as his artist pupil. Returning to America, Mrs. Pickard taught for three years for the Institute of Musical Arts. For some time she accompanied the extra chorus of Metropolitan Opera Co. under the direction of Eduardo Petri, besides fulfilling numerous concert engagemenls. She appeared in recital at Town Hall in New York, following a series of con- cents in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Mrs. Pickard's activities have included a number of recitals with Rainald Werrenrath, famous baritone, and Louise Bernhardt, formerly of the American Opera Co. in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina, an- several successful tours of the Southwest. She has also appeared with Agnes Davis, soprano, and Maurice Eisenbery, noted cellist, under the auspices of the Community Concert Association as well as performing as soloist with various symphony orchestras. Her last concert in New York at the Barizon Concert Hall, was enthusiastically received. The Friday Music club feels a great pride in having Ruth Pickard a member of I.Vieir musical organization and having been privileged in hearing her play, wishes to urge the people of Hope and the surrounding territories to take advantage of this opportunity to hear a truly great artist. This recital is destined to be one of the finest musical programs ever to be presented in this city. Wagner said only about half the men in service are covered by existing state unemployment insurance programs, because they were engaged in farmining or other excluded occupations, and that even those covered probably would find ihe payments inadequate. He cited that a majority of the states pay a maximum of $15 a week and that the minimum goes below $5 weekly in nine stales. May's bill, which the Kentuckian said, has the backing of the White House, calls for payment of a maximum of $300 to those who have been on active duty six months or longer.
