Eighty-six of 131 sports experts, voting in the final Associated Press poll of the season marked the Irish No. 1 on their ballots and their decisions kept Notre Dame on the throne for the ninth straight week. The remaining 45 voters were definite in their opinion that the loss had robbed the Frank Leahy machine of much of its glamour, j Some dropped the Irish as low as | seventh, in contrast to the poll of j three weeks ago when Notre Dame j established a record by sqaring j every first-place ticket. As it was, however, the Irish finished with 1,259 points to take over the mythical National Championship in succession to the 1942 Ohio State eleven. Not only did Notre Dame's loss cost it heavily in points but it lifted the Great Lakes aggregation from 21st to sixth place and made the Iowa Pre-Flight, victim by a 14 to 13 count, a strong runnerup to the South Bend stalwarts. The Seahawks grabbed 12 first place votes and a total of 1,028 points — only 231 less than the total compiled by Notre Dame. • Michigan, with a single expert regarding it as the country's best, was third while Navy's 13 to 0 victory over Army hiked it from sixth a week ago to fourth. Purdue, undefeated and whom a dozen experts hailed as the No. 1 outfit, came next, just above the Great Lakes Bluejackets. The Sailors received one vote for No. 1. Duke, again a southern powerhouse and the Southern Conference champion, landed seventh place and annexed the seven votes as the best while Del Monte, Calif. Pre-Flight was eighth and had nine writers hailing it as the outstanding eleven. Great Lakes took the spot in the select circle vacated by Army, a member of the first ten all season until shunted among the second Rooftops of Berlins The Bombs FallKirc 1 • •» , Southworth All Smiles About 1944 Redbirds Aggies Resume Grid Practice for Oil Bowl Monticello, Nov. 30 (.1 J )— LI.

This time the occasion was word that Tom was "walking out," us a friend described it in a letter home, from a similar adventure in China. Mo had been missing on n combat mission over Kiukiang since Oct. 30. First of the family to hear of the at the | 24-year-old lieutenant's safely was j his 70-ycar-olr.l father, Louis Harmon. His mother, Mrs. Rose Har- I mon, 65, and his sister, Mrs. Sally the 18-year-old Jensen, of Gary, Ind., had gone to North Carolina high school boy nearby Ypsilanti where the mother who is starring in the backficld of ittle ones ".In baseball, fellows the Bainbridge, Md., Naval Train- who have something don't \yant to give it up, even if they don't deserve it." ing Station football team, won't have any trouble getting a college education after the war. William of one of Harmon's friends in China had word Tom was believed safe as early as Nov. 6. "Thank the Lord," Tom's father sputtered joyfully when he learned Brazle, Outfielder Harry Walker, Catcher Walker Cooper and Second-Sacker Lou Klein in recent days, and may yet snatch one or two others like Mori Cooper. But the way he rattled off the replacements for these varsity men was like a train-caller announcing the regular stops of the five-fifteen. "So," he shrugged, "we have a kid named George Dockins coming up from Columbus lo ta';e Brazlc's place as our lefthand pitcher, and Ted Wilks from Columbus and Blix Donnelly from Rochester and Al Byerly from Sacramento to throw 'cm. "For catchers we have Tom Heath from Columbus behind Ken O'Dea, and to take Klein's place at second there's Emil Verban from Columbus. Now, understand me, we don't have Al Sehoendienst from Rochester yet." Sehoendienst is only rated the best looking minor league second baseman-shortstop of the year, and the Cards can probably haul him up any time — but up lo right now they don't have him.

I doubt if there has been present in Washington in recent years any larger or more active lobby than that fighting subsidies. One exhausted Congressman who had been in the thick of the subsidy scrap told me he believed there were "at least several hundred" anti-subsidy group representatives in the capital. Mostly, they are speaking for possible for him to meet both prices. Those figures arc, of course, hy- What goes on in many of the studies today is literally out of this world.

Gary H. Hammond of Ypsilanti had written his mother, Mrs. Charles Hammong, that "four men were missing in a raid. One, we know for sure, is walking back and we have rumors that two more are coming also. We think that Harmon is walking out too." Thc letter was dated Nov. 6.

Administration leaders further point out thai this government has been paying subsidies for years: (1) by direct payment to farmers on certain crops and (2) by the purchase of surpluses at parity or near parity price levels.

They also claim that a subsidy program running into the hundreds of millions wouldn't reduce the cost of living one per cent.

The war bulletin acknowledged the Nazis had captured the island of Uljan, a few miles off the northern Dalmatian coast near the port of Zara. Bloody fighting was reported on all fronts, but was fiercest around Sarajevo, lhe communique said. The struggle for Vares set-sawed with both sides in possession during the day.

The broadcast, recorded by Reuters, said the tnoops came ashore in six large landing barges under cover of a bombardment by cruisers and destroyers. ' The landing apparently was carried out near the mouth of the Laruma river. The Japanese said their defenses had "annihilated two companies" of' the'landing'forces. 'There was'' no immediate confirmation of the reported landings from Allied sources. (Another Tokyo broadcast recorded by the Associated Press in New York a.uoted an imperial headquarters communique as saying Japanese naval aircraft had sunk two Allied aircraft carriers and another unidentified warships east of lhe Gilbert islands on the night of Nov. 29. A large cruiser also was set afire, said the communique, which was wholly unconfirmed by any Allied reports on shipping losses. The Japanese acknowledged the loss of six planes.)

At a time when the Country is pouring billions of dollars into instruments of destruction, and is necessarily training millions of young men to use them, I believe we are fortunate to have a great organizafion like the Boy Scouts, whose purpose it is fo train boys for peace. It seems to me that your request for funds is small compared to the value of the work you are doing, and I hope your drive will go over the top the first day.

J., Dec, 1 — (/P) — The diplomatic exchange ship Gripsholm arrived at her pier to| day, bringing safely home nearly 'l,500 Americans interned by the Japanese for nearly two years of war. The 18,00-lon liner, which anchored for lhe night off Ambrose Light in lower New York bay, proceeded cautiously by the harbor and arrived off the pier at 8:40 a. m. (EWT). The actual docking was expected to take about a half hour longer, and several hours | might pass before lhe first passengers depart. As the ship turned around in the harbor mist, the passengers were obscured from the view of officials, Red Cross workers who handled lhe arrangements for passengers, and customs and immigration officials. The ship carried 1,223 United Stales nationals, 217 Canadian, and some Latin Americans, A naval public relations officer said the Canadians were passing through the port through joint arrangements with Canadian authorities and would be moved directly from the pier to wailing trains. The naval officer said they hoped lo disembark passengers at the rate of 100 an hour and it was hoped all would be off the ship by midnight. ROTARY LEAPER DIES Memphis, Dec. \(JP)— Lawrence S.

Yanks Keep Up Air Assault Over Germany London, Dec. 18 —(/P)— American heavy bombers, in their third assault in three days, bombed Western Germany again today while Marauder mediums made the operation an American doubleheader by battering airfields in Northern France. : . The daylight attacks made it the fourth day of uninterrupted round- the-clock bombing of Germany itself. Monday it was Bremen, yesterday it was Solingen in the Ruhr. The daylight raids came in con- junclion with day and night attacks by RAF Mosquitos on Germany. The heavy bombers were supported by United Stales and RAF fighters and the mediums were escorted by RAF, Dominion and Allied fighters. Specific targets were not announced immediately. The new peak of intensity in the aerfal warfare across the channel reflected the Germans' inability to break up daylight bombing with their new rocket guns or any other means. The morning foray followed on the heels of another night attack on Western Germany by the RAF's fleet Mosquito bombers. Beaufight- ers of the Royal Canadian Air Force also attacked an enemy convoy off the Norwegian coast last night,-; damaging two merchant vessels, and mines were laid in enemy waters, an air ministry communi- que said. The overnight forays were carried out without the loss of a single plane, the announcement declared. Yesterday the U.-S. Eighth Air Force wound up its best operational month of the war with a smashing attack on the industrial center of Solingen in the German Ruhr. The assault brought to 11 the number of major daylight operations carried out by Britain-based Arner- icah airmen in November, exceeding the peak monlhs of July and September, each of which had witnessed 10 U. S. heavy bomber forays. The Solingen raid was carried out at a cost of two heavy bombers and five fighters, while seven enemy aircraft were shot down six by fighters and one by a Fortress. It was the second successive raid in which American fighter losses exceeded bomber losses, 16 fighters and 13 bombers having been lost Monday in a massive assault on Bremen. Whether these figures indicated the adoption of new tactics on the part of the Germans, whether they were unable to get at the Fortresses because of heavy fighter escorts or whether they have grown wary of attacking the big bombers was not immediately clear. Yesterday's raid, on Solingen was the first atlack on v lhat target. The city lies 14 miles southeast of oft- bombed Duesseldorf and is the site of the largest nomvaferrous metal casting foundry in Europe. Its products are used in building Ger man fighter planes. It was famed in the. Middle Ages for its sword blades. As the Forlrcsses struck at Solingen from the west, the Budapest radio asserted two waves of U. S. bombers flew over Western Hungary in the direction of Vienna, suggesting Allied planes from southern bases might again be hit ~® By The Associated Press' Speculation that mighty new, thrusts against the Axis are in the making was stirred today by unofficial reports that President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill were speeding.to a conference with Premier Stalin in Iran after meeting with Generalissimo Chiang Kai- Shek in Cairo. The reports, emanating from Lisbon and quickly given wide circulation, climaxed a week of gutfs's- 7 , ^' ing by German propaganda agett- A* { cies, which have been hinting-at ^'-' the possibility of an imminent meeting of the Allied leaders .in Cairo or elsewhere in the Middle East. The Lisbon feport was circulated by Reuters, British news agen- > cy,-which said it was "known definitely" m the Portuguese capital that the Cairo meeting already had taken place and that Roosevelt and Churchill had departed for Iran. A communique on the results of the Cairo Conference will be issued ' later in the week, Reuters said. The Reuters dispatch was broadcast to European countries m several languages last night by the Office of War Information, which said it had acted with the authority of the Office of Censorship. Elmer Davis, OWI chief, declared later in Washington the OWI had broadcast the Reutprs dispatch because it "already was 11 over Europe." The German lews agency, DNB and "virtually everybody else" has circulated-'the! Reuters report and OWI felt it 'should give its customers some- x hing, too,". Davis 'said. , At the same time, however, he ,W sharply criticized-Reuters for -puVr--,\ ;mg out the story, 'declaring "if ,'\ here were a conference we could' issume from past experience that there would be some arrangement 'or a simultanous release in all capitals involved." "If that were the case," he added, "Reuters broke a release date, :f there were no conference, then:: he story would be an invention Either way it is equally reprehensible." The idea lhat a meeting between Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin- was probable has gained tacit acceptance in recent weeks. It was ' generally presumed the three ' statesman would deem it advantageous to get together to place their personal stamp of approval upon the decisions taken at the Moscow conference , and possibly to plan further steps to be taken against the Axis. Rumors Chiang might join such a conference slipped into the picture several days ago to add new global significance to reports of an impending meeting. The Reuters dispatch said Chiang also would meet Stalin. By JOHN M, HIGHTOWEJk Washington, -.Dec. 1 (IP) — Mighty news blows against the enemy — mental as well as phy'si- cal blows — are confidently expected from the epochal conversa- ting at Wiener Neustadt, south oi Vienna.

Carrier, Republican, to Congress last nighi marked the first instance of two Republican representatives from Kentucky since 1929. Carriers victory had been pre dieted by political observers in line with the overwhelming Republican landslide in the November Kentucky elections. The special election became necessary when Congressman Edward W. Creul died in office three weeks before the November elections. tions now reported in progress among the highest Allied leaders. Washington authorities, in guarded speculation on what such talks might accomplish, emphasized today the primary concern of President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill, Marshal Stalin and Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek must be agreement on measures for wining the war. Above and beyond this lie the intangible benefits which political observers here believe are to be gained from close personal relei- tionships among the Allied government chiefs and their ranking staff officers. l}\ the Anglo-American war effort, they point out, such relationships frequently have reconciled highly divergent views on strategy and policy. That the meetings are under way was reported Jn a Reuters dispatch from Lisbon yesterday which said Roosevelt, Churchill and Chiang Kai-Shek already had concluded a long session in Cairo preliminary to a meeting with Stalin in Iran. Later, another dispatch from Stockholm reported the U. S. ambassador to Turkey, Laurence A. Steinhardt, had left Ankara by air enroute to Teheran, capital of Iran. The first three-way discussions among the British, Soviet and American leaders are expected to lead to closest coordination of strategy in the final drives to smash Germany as well, as for the solution of postwar international problems untouched by the recent Moscow conference of foreign ministers. Similar results, it is believed here, may be expected from any discussions in which Chiang Kai- (Continued on Page Two)
