Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor ALEX. H. WASHBURN Lewis' Crafty Idea Half a million, coal miners have been on strike since Tuesday night, breaking the union's truce with the government and checking up to President Roosevelt the matter of disciplinary action. Russians Defeat Nazi Attempts to Relieve Troops By WILLIAM McGAFFIN As you recall, John L. Lewis, -® boss of the United Mine Workers of America, precipitated the original strike in May when the mine operators failed to agree to wage raises proposed by the union. Then the government took over the mines, and Ihe men returned to work. Lewis' new action, therefore, is just what Mr. Roosevelt has called -a strike against government. For in wartime neither the rights of Ihe mine owners nor the rights of the union miners are of any importance in the face of the necessity of gelling a continuous supply | of fuel lo war plants and railroads. Some observers report Mr. Lewis I seemed to think he had scored a Doctor Who Attended Dionne Quints Dies North Bay, Ontario, June 2 —(/P) —Dr. Allan Roy Dafoc, 60 former physician to the Dionne quintuplets, died today in a hospital here. Dr. Dafoo, who gained international prominence nine years ago when he attended the quintuplets at birth died at 11 a. m., five minutes after lie had been admitted to the hospital. Dr. D. A. Campbell oC North Bay, who was at the bedside, said death was clue to pneumonia. Two years ago — On April 14. 1941 — Dr. Dafoe underwent a major operation, the nature of which was not disclosed. It was on February 14, 1042, that Dr. Dafoe finally gave up his connection with the quintuplets. He offered his resignation to Premier Mitchell Hepburn, then premier of Ontario "becau.se his position has been made almost impossible by reason of the fact, that the children are not allowed to speak English." Later the physician said he quit because "I felt that my usefulness had come to an end." 1,500 Japs Are Killed in First 20 Days on Attu Rationing of Canned Milk Starts Today Washington, June 2 W 3 )— Rationing ol canned milk began today on short notice.

Panicky Nazis Try to Learn Invasion Plans By JOHN COUBURN Stockholm, June 2 (/Pi — The German general staff and other Nazi military circles appeared lo be grasping for straws today in an effort to learn the time and place of Ihe expccled Allied summer in vasion. Berlin dispalches continued to insist Ihe Germans have planned no summer offensive on their own, and Nazi military circles were quoted by the neutral correspondent to the Stockholms Tidningen as saying a large - scale coinbinec Russian and British - American of fensive from Ihe easl and wes might not start until fall. German military commentators said all signs on the Russnin front indicated the Soviet Union was preparing for a winter offensive while they maintained the British and American forces lacked sufficiently seasoned troops to conduct anything but largescale commando raids this summer, the correspondent added. Behind the fact the rigid German censorship permitted speculation regarding Ihe Nazi military views on the invasion situation lay further indications the Axis conducting "fishing expeditions" for information on Allied plans. Since ll)o cr y p I i c statement which was issued at the conclusion r -> f t lic Churchill - Roosevelt conference in Washingot.il, the Nazis have been allowing publication of stories saying they could no longer hide the effects of Allied aerial bombardments, and that their military, manpower and material strength has been sapped by their defeats in Russia and North Africa. moment the war emergency is over. Mr. Lewis may have thought it pretty slick to transfer the coal mines from private ownership to government—bul in the same throw of the dice he has risked the very existence of the union to which he las dedicaled a life-time. with blocks from shell fragments by tundra battlements. The only part of it extending above ground is the smoke pipe for the central heating stove. Most such huts are built into the sides of hills so that some drainage is provided. When the drains fail to work, however, the Japs simply lay catwalks over the water and go on using (lie installations. Most elaborate of all are the anti-aircraft positions, which include three or four rooms, all underground except tho single roofless circle which holds the gun itself. Crews lived, slept, worked and played in the caves they had built. At the west arm of Holt/. Bay, the trench system was so elaboia\e that it was possible to cross the entire valley without once exposing oneself to the sight of anyone in the bay — the distance is aliii-st two miles. At the airport in the east arm of Holtz Bay, workers have lived under the landing strip in underground sheds placed in scored on the runway, North Head and Gertrude Cove." This was the first comprehensive report of enemy casualties given out by American sources. A report on one night's operations which was issued by the navy Tuesday said 400 of the enemy were slain between dusk and dawn of May 29-30. Another earlier war bulletin disclosed that an entire counter-attacking force had been wiped out in one action at dawn of May 29 but no count was given. A Lisbon dispatch reported the 85 Per Cent of New Hosiery to Be Rayon Washington, June 2 —(/P) — Eighty-five per cent of the hosiery worn by women this year will be of rayon, the Office of War Information reported today in announcing there are no plans for rationing stockings. recesses in the side of teau. the pla- The selection will be less varied than in peacetime and the emphasis will be on wearing quality rather than sheerness. Prices are restrained by dollars and cents ceilings which specify definite quality grades for each price. Other points developed in the OWI report on hosiery: Stockings will average one inch shorter than the same styles in pre-war silk or nylon, because of the stretching qualities of rayon . Hosiery will be limited to five colors in any style. This is hardly a wartime restriction, OWI said, since even in normal times few manufacturers had greater variety. Under War Production Board rulings, the stocking must be reinforced in foot and welt for extra wear. When the price and marking system goes into full effect, in the next few months, every pair must carry marks identifying its quality. The sheer rayon stocking of prewar days is prohibited, although the government permits — but does not encourage — production of a new sheer rayon stocking made of a special type yarn and with a new mechanical technique. One of the strangest of all the installations was on a sand bar directly behind a gun position in the east arm of the bay. Starting with a gravel mound about 20 feel in diameter, the Japanese had built it up to a cone. If intenddc for concealment, it was once failure. It stood out as far as it could be seen. A stove pipe came out the lop. To enter, a man clambered up the gravel to a point about four feet below the top, there entered a twisting slit trench so narrow that a normal sized Amercian wearing a canteen belt had to take the belt off before he could go through it. The trench turned sharply, slanted down, entered a four-foot- square four - foot - high floored chamber. One corner contained a tiny stove, another a bag of rice. The chamber was windosvless, had been completely roofed before some American dropped ;\ grenade into it. An occupant could not look or shoot out, could not even see the gun closest to him.

Single Plane Raid on U.S. 8 Months Ago Fort Orford, Ore., June 2 —(£•)— The public learned today of the enemy's fifth futile attack on the west coast, a sneak incendiary raid by a lone airplane more than eight months ago. Believed launched from a Japanese submarine last September 28, the plane flew over the Oregon coast in the early morning fog so dense a forest service lookout was unable to see the ship although it droned directly by his tower on a mountain near here. The lookout, Lauren S. Giebner, followed the sound of the motor as it moved northeastward. Heard a blast and saw a flash, as if a bomb had been dropped. Giebner reported to forest headquarters and watched sharply for the fire. When the fog lifted two hours later, he spotted it in a heavily limbered canyon three miles away. A crew of fire fighters hiked Iwo hours over rugged mountains to reach the blaze and bring it under control. This was the second reported incendiary attempt on the forests of his isolated southwsetern corner jf Oregon. The army previously mnnuncod a small plane flew in Vom the sea near Brookings last last word heard from the plane was "enemy plane attacking us." Kenneth Stonehouse, former chief of bureau at Washington nor Reuters news agency who was en- route to London to take a new assignment, was said to be aboard the aircraft with Mrs. Stonehouse. The reports from Listen said the plane with its Dutch crew was shot down in the stormy Bay of Biscay about half way between Lisbon and England that concern was felt over weather reports which indicated it would have been difficult for the passengers to take to their rubber boats.

Earlier, the German communi- que reported Nazi reconnaissance planes had shot down three Allied aombers and."one transport" over the Atlantic. Later the British Press Association quoted reliable sources as confirming that the actor was one of the passengers on the plane. The overseas airways spokesman said the plane was carrying 13 passengers and that one of them was named Howard. He tuld- ed, however, that only the surnames of the passengers were available in London at present. The Lisbon account said Alfred Chaenwall, a film director, and three women, each accompanied by a child, also were passengers. The spokesman said the fate of the plane was not known but that "enemy action was suspected." He said a formal statement would be issued later. The plane left Lisbon yesterday morning and was due in England last evening, he said. Howard had been in Spain recently canvassing the possibility of producing films there.
