The press association reported that Norwegian troops still held a line near Miosa, iu the Hamar region, and Stockholm reported that British troops, proceeding down the railroad from Andalsnes on the Norwegian north seacoast, now controlled the railroad leading down past Domaas to Devore, in the direction of lillchammer. The air ministry communiques reporting blasting British air force raids on Aalsborg, Denmark, chief German air base for Norwegian operations, Kristlansand on the Norwegian south coast, and Slav- anger on the north seacoast, were believed lo imply that the air force was working in closest co-ordination with the army and navy and was seeking not only to knock out German air bases but to cover allied landing operations by preventing German scouting. Air circles said that six separate fires were blazing at the Alftorg airport when British attackers left after the raid. The fires were started by incendiary bombs. One British pilot was said to ind Cl warship* . ,,, battleships, two battle cruisers, one airplane carrier, four heavy cruisers, 10 other cruisers, 12 destroyers, 13 submarines and 15 transport ships.

At - least six planes were reported destroyed and 'other damaged. The whole field was blasted from southeast to northwest and several flres were started by bombs. A British spokesman asserted that Allied landing operations had gone "very well." He said that the British had suffered no losses from German air atttacks but he admitted that immunity from dam- ago might not long continue. Move Against Tromllielm STOCKHOLM. Apr. 22. ^P)- Allleri expeditionary troops moved in force against the German occupied Norwegian port of Trondheim today and a British commander in the north warned that an immediate attack would be launched by land, sea and air on the Arctic port of Narvik. The offensives against Trondheim and Narvik gathered momentum co-incidenlally with reports of the first American casualty in the Scandinavian war—Capt. Robert M. Loscy, United States nir attache, killed in a German bombardment in central Norway, where Norwegian troops nided by British officers were fighting back strongly against the Germans northeast of Oslo. Fighting in which British and Norwegian forces threw back thc Germaifc north of Narvik was reported by refugees arriving at the ^.wcaisti frontier and the British naval commander in the Narvik zone- warned Norwegians to leave that port because it would be attacked without delay in nn effort established contact by way of Kris ilnnsnnd and that other German forces had captured the towns of Lillehammer, 78 miles north of Oslo, and Gjoevik, 12 miles northwest of Hamar. and the heights or Lundehaedge, "inflicting heavy losses on the enemy." "In the vicinity of Bergen, more modern artillery and other material were 'captured," the high command said. The official news agency said Germans hnd confiscated 380,000 pairs of military boots lit Bert-en Saturday. The boots were destined for Britain, thc agency said, acid'ng: "Booty beyond all expectation has been captured in 11 search of harbors and depots." The high command said Allied naval forces had bombarded Narvik again yesterday without attempting to land trooiis. The Zwoelf Uhr Blatt said all 90 British losses occurred in Norwegian waters and that 57 of them were airplanes that crashed or_ ships that sank or were stranded j within range of German guns. These 57 "complete losses." according to the newspaper, Included the 29 airplanes, the 13 submarines, 1C of the destroyers and five of the cruisers. The other 33 ships were "heavily ' or lightly damaged," the newspaper .said. ....... ., . j The newspaper considered 'the' Norwegian'campaign now virtual-j ly ended. It said that "for reasons! of prestige, Churchill, (Winston,; first lord of the British admiralty) continues to carry out clumsy landing maneuvers, here and there, but the selection of troops he sends into fire — Canadian and French soldiers — shows all too clearly that he recognizes the iise- lessncss of further undertaking's."
