No. 2 man in the Gestapo, who is known as "the hangman." gravely wounded by assassins Tuesday, underwent an operation which surgeons hoped would Heads WAAC Officers' School save his life. Norwegians Shoot Straight The Norwegian patriots aimed more accurately; they killed their man, according to dispatches from Stockholm, which described Ivan as "one of the principal Gestapo officials for western Norway." The attack was said to have occurred several days ago before Heydrich was shot in Prague. He was shot on Sotra Island, off Bergen, and the Germans arrested the entire opulation o f the small village vherc the attack occurred. After vacuating the families and confis- ating the livestock, dispatches aid, the Gestapo burned the en- ire village to the ground.

"Because it is vitally necessary that an even flow of cadets in raining be maintained with the utmost efficiency, and because in raining "time is of the essence," he Southeast Army Air Forces Training Center has organized a raining program which each year produces great numbers of bom- aardment pilots, pursuit pilots, havigators, and bombardiers without any sacrifice of the quality of preparation for their specialized tasks.

The unconfirmed report of Heydrich's death reached here from Vichy. (Vichy reports of developments elsewhere in Europe, particularly accounts broadcast by the Vichy radio, have proved unreliable in many instances.

In the Prc- Flight School and Flying Schools a senior class is graduated at speci- ied intervals, a lower class becomes an upper, and a new lower class inters. Thus an even flow of cadets n training is maintained from the Classification Center to the day of graduation from the Advanced School.

Six persons—all members of a 5 ingle family—were shot to death t Rotkitzan, near Pilsen, for "concealing persons known to be en- aged in activities against the Reich." Two of the victims were and one was a youth of 17. Reward Unclaimed Although the Gestapo busily rounded up victims, Czech spokesmen here said there had been no laimants to the 10,000,000 crown (S235.000) award for information of Heydrich's assassins. Heydrich was struck by bullets fired by two men from automatic rifles as he drove along the street, and his assailants fled on bicycles. Dr. Ferdinand Sauerbruch, one of Germany's best known surgeons, removed three bullets from 'The Hangman's" spine and spinal column in a delicate operation, a Swiss dispatch said. Radio Prague announced that Kurt Daluege, chief of the German uniformed police (as distinguished from the Gestapo or secret police) had been appointed to succeed Heydrich as "protector of Bohemia and Moravia." Heydrich, in turn, was named chief of the Gestapo for the occupied countries. Dalxiege's first official decree banned all Czech meetings, sports and theatrical performances. He ordered all houses locked at 11 p.m. nightly and announced that i all Czechs assisting the patriot- killers would be executed. including fortified termination to carry the fight ini-n Germany and Japan, tho same determination that inspired Jimmy Doolittie and his gallant bund," Marshall said.
