BIG BILL THOMPSON OF CHICAGO IS DEAD Mama's Mouthful One destruction of all pro-British books in Chicago V schools and libraries- He damned the late King George V in the colorful Thompson language and threatened to "punch the king in the snoot" if he ever came to Chicago.

The Allied headquarters com- munique issued earlier today said German reinforcements had been moving into the town in a steady stream, but Roper's dispatch suggested that the backbone of the German defense^ had been broken. In the hills overlooking the town, however. Allied and German troops were locked in a violent. shifting battle in which strongpoints changed hands repeatedly. One German force recaptured Hill 165. a small elevation several hundred yards west of Casaino from which the Nazis were I able to direct a stream of artillery and mortar fire at the New Zealand infantrymen battling thru the streets. Other enemy troop* were wi- trenched firmly in the "Duke's Palace" on the south side of the Via Casilina. just south of Cassino and in an ancient Roman amphitheater on the north side of the highway. Bitter patrol fighting continued in the lower Garigliano valley and on the 5th army beachhead below Rome, but there were no important changes in the opposing battle lines. British 8th army troops on the Adriatic coastal front repulsed several German patrol attacks, in- flirting heavy casualties on the enemy, and several enemy strong- points were smashed by artillery fire.

Our four-year-old looked curiously at that face, walking back and' forth, from .one side of tfce room to the other. "Daddy, Thomas Jefferson's eyes follow me wherever I go," he shouted.
