"The facts- leading up to Pearl 3arbor and our almost certain iii- rolvement were never presented to the American congress or the American people," she said at a press conference after her cain- salgn speech for Governor Dewey last night. "I have the feeling, which many people share, that protracted se- yecy Is an effort to conceal some- ;hing which might be detrimental to the administration." "Roosevelt must sometime ex- jlaln why he jumped Admiral Klmmel over the heads of 62 other officers. I believe it would be for one of two reasons—political favoritism, or that Kimmel agreed to some proposition that the senior officers would not have agreed to." Asked to comment on Secretary ofj-rnchau's pian lor dealing with Germany, she said that under the ]lan "Europe would be reduced to in agricultural province of Great Britain and Russia." Mrs, Luce, in her address last night, described Dewey as "the Inevitable man" who "will lead the way to a people's peace." purpose ft crcsa-Rhine stab into the north German plain which would have forced the German ,Army, already scraping the bottom of Its reserve barrel, to extend its line another 1EC n-.iles to the north. Would Have Been Reflected Quickly "That extension would have been reflected quicjply in a forced thinning of an already tight-drawn main German stand in the Siegfried Line and on the Rhine. There jitlll is every., indication that - the Germans have been unable to put more than the equivalent of 25 or 30 top-strength <J*vlsIons Into that line—or something under a half- million men. "The Wehrmacht already has lost that many on the -western front hi captured alone, with almost that many killed or wounded. And the Red Army's terrific pressure upon the even longer eastern front has allowed no transfer of a relieving force." Rnssian Press (Continued from Ptge i) Although it was the most pessimistic picture the Soviet prfss ever has drawn of Japan's chances of winning the war, there was nothing in the review to jupport a. theory that Japanese-Russian relations have changed. • Having started the war, Pravda said, tha Japanese "seduced themselves" Into believing that early capture ol a large number of territories would so demoralize the enemy that victory would be won. "The unprecedented' acceleration of the tempo of war in the United States has mode it more nnd more impossible for Japan to cover the distance which separates it from the American level of production ol planes, ships, artillery, war mn- terials, etc., Pravda said. "At present the U. S. aviation Industry exceeds Japan's 12 times. The" American and British fleets are twice superior to Japan's. The Jap* anese fleet losses have not been supplemented by production. The Allies . dominate the sea and ajr." The article snld t there was reason for "objective alarm" in Japnn, cit- by ing more frequent air raids American planes. Although Japan captured and _. holds huge territories, U said, the superiority of the Allied fleet prevents Japnn from using her distant raw materials, and "Japanese plans and hopes on thla subject were Utopian," •The burden o£ the Pacific war on Japan," said Provda bluntly, "is becoming heavier and heavier every day. coursp of tho wnr hw> cruelly deceived the expectations of tho worshippers of the military Fascist system."

By his reference to the rfew Deal—after publicly pronouncing it dead a few months ago— Washington political observers say Roosevelt lost stature, that he had been forced Into his rightful role aa an ambitious man seeking tc retain lilmself in office." Review of the week: The week Just closed boxed the campaign Into three general divisions: The second half of the Roosevelt-Dewey opening word duel, the HUlman-Brow- der concentration of a counter attack on Dewey, . and a fresh' anti- Roosevelt upsurge among some southern Democrats. Dewey appeared so pleased _with his Oklahoma City "you asited for it—here it is" reply to the President's teamsters' speech thnt newsmen traveling with him got the idea he might do most of his own speech- writing from now on, especially where Roosevelt thrusts are deemed to warrant quick retaliatory blows, Dewey, with a lot of assistance, had an Oklahoma City speech prepared before he started on his cross- country tour. But he tore it up and wrote a new one himself In 12 hours when the president threw everything but the book at him in his Sept. 23 address. Held Brilliantly Successful Balancing Republican Chairman Herbert Browneil's description of Dewey's whole tour as "brilliantly successful" was the statement of Democratic Publicity Chief Paul Porter that Mr. Roosevelt's "fraud" blast at Dewey,was the "most masterful political 'speech" he ever delivered. Dewer's theme that the president Is "Indispensable to Sidney Hlllman and the Political Action Committee, and to Earl Browder, the ex-convict nnd pardoned Communist leader," finally brought Hlllman and Browder out of their war tents. The former charged Dewey with "willful deception" In not quoting fully from the president's 1937 "quarantine of aggressors" speech, in accusing Mr. Roosevelt of not- preparing the nation's defenses adequately. "If America had listened to the quarantine speech there would have 'jcen no war." said the PAG leader. Browder. American Communist leader, warned that election of Dewey would be an "invitation to Europe to plunge immediately or soon into the most dsvastatir-g civil war," and end United States co-operhtion with Russia, Last Ounce Of Nazi Strength Is Marshalled . New York, Sept. 30—W— The London radio, in a. broadcast recorded by CBS today, quoted Hans Fritsche, German political commentator, a s iavrng declared on the German radio:. "We have marshalled the last ounce of strength within us and thrown it into the balance."

Moser said today. Moser also said that continuance of Mrs. Handle's case was "not tantamount to a recommendation.' Such a continuance, he explained, could result In his recommendation either that she be given a parole or that her application be rejected. I School Bus Tests Authority Aired Nothing hi Law To Prevent Connty Boards Naming Examining Garages Baltimore, Sept. 30 (fF)— Hall Hammond, assistant state's attorney general, said .today he saw nothing in the state law to prevent county boards'of education and the commission of motor vehicles from naming the same garages as the various school bus Inspection agents, as a means of expediting the inspection. ' A group of state officials met in the attorney general's office for a conference concerning the divided responsibility for school bus inspections under Maryland's motor vehicle laws, which provides the vehicles must be inspected twice yearly by the county agent, with the assistance of a person designated by the commission. The meeting called by governor O'Conor was attended by W. Lee Elgin, commissioner of motor vehicles. Dr. Thomas G. Pullin, Jr., state superintendent of schools. Col. Beverly Ober, superintendent of the state, police, Kur.'ard H. McShane 01 the state traffic safety commission and Hammond.

They also took Belfahy, two miles north. Other Seventh Army units struck up to another secondary pass at Bouv- ellSeurs.-weli to the north and within 18 miles of one of the four major Vosges passes at Le Borihomme. The battle • for Rambercil- lers, a road center 22 miles southeast of Nancy, thundered on the Seventh In a two-mile gain captured St. Gorgon, one mile south of.the town and 21 miles west of the Vos- ges Pass at Saales. A communique said the Seventh here was pushing east on a five-mile front. Germans Beaten Back North of Belfort the Germans were driven back, after a counterattack west of Le Thlllot, which itself Is only seven miles from Bussang Pass, another gateway through the Vosges to the Rhine. The Amerian First Army feeling out the Siegfried Line was hampered by weather as wet. end almost as cold, but it was inching its way through pillboxes southwest of Prum and eight miles Inside Germany. The Amerian attack spread from the Slttard area north 6f the besieged frontier Industrial city of Aachen southward to near the German- Luxembourg border, and the com- munique reported "limited progress.' The Doughboys hammered.against Hurtgen, 14 miles southeast of Aachen, apparently with -little success, but far to the south they cleared the Germans from the Luxembourg border towns of Wesserbilllg and Monpach," six miles west of Trier, where they also are across the enemy's frontier. The Doughboys in northern France captured Haute-Krontz, near where the borders of France, Luxembourg and Germany's Saar come together. German patrols • probed the First Army front, looking for a developing American attack. Third Near Saar Basin The Gerraaai were even more sensitive, however, about the disposition of the-Third army, whose arch- Ing lines 28 to 20 miles northeast of Nancy were thrust within 20 miles of the Saar basin, with Its Industry and coal mines. They were slugging toe-to-toe with Lt. Gen George S.

' "I have read, or listened to, all of Gov. Dewey's speeches and statements to date," said Ball. "He has not convinced me that his own convictions on this (foreign policy) ssue are so strong that he would fight for a foreign policy which will offer "real hope of preventing World War III against the inevitable 'opposition to such a policy.

Senator Wherry of Nebraska, Republican "whip of the Senate, said he thought .Ball's decision "most unfortunate." "I feel Governor De'wey's statement on foreign policy Is ,.brbad enough and positive enougli that anyone,' Republican or Democrat, could be satisfied with it," Wherry told reporters. "He will have to have legislation to Implement the broad principles before details could be worked in. If Dewey's statement on International policy is not ' satisfactory, what about the other candidate?. "Dewey has made the only affirmative statement made." Ball Needed, Wherry Says As for Ball, Wherry said "we need him badly to help us in this campaign." I hope he changes his mind." None of the three leaders of the Dewey campaign in the state. Gov. Edward J. Thye, National Republican Committeeman Roy Dunn, or State Republican Chairman George C. Jones, could be reached for comment today on Senator Ball's statement. At the Governor's office It was said, however, that he might make a statement later in the day.

Miss Rich, whose score was 50.33 pounds of satisfactorily skinned tomatoes in ten minutes, received $100 war bond. bert Rudman, Baltimore physician recently returned from Australia said today that mentally exhausted veterans of war usually needed no further treatment than mere confidential talks to rehabilitate them arid send them hack to the battle front. Such talks, the physician, who was stationed at the Forty-second General Hospital unit, said hat helped send more than 45 per cenl of the patients back to duty. "Treatment of these men usuallj consisted of talking with them and explaining their own cases to them When they understood what hac happened to them and why they had certain symptdms, the cases usually began to clear up, ant mentAl breakdown began to disappear," he explained. Good .food, recreation and "Just being home" were listed by Dr Rudman as the major solutions of the post-war problems of rehabilitation of the physically and mentally tired veterans. -Dr. Rudnian, a 1937 graduate ol the Un!7crs!ty of Maryland Medlca School, served for seven months In New Guinea before being assigned to the Australia hospital unit.

Germans Fail To Dislodge Yanks The Germans made a supreme effort to dislodge the Doughboys from vionte Battaglia, 11 miles from their ilghway pivot of Imola on the road "rom Rimini which runs northwest to Bologna, • a prime Fifth Army objective. Unsuccessful, the Germans were forced to withdraw both east arid west of the. mountain, since American fire from the summit commanded supply roads. This may have been' a. factor in the moderate gains reported "to the tfest, where the Americans captured Giugnola and sent patrols on a mile northwest into Belvidere, 18 miles south and slightly east of Bologna and 14 miles from the Rimini-Bologna highway.
