Eighth Air Force heavy bombers with fighter escort ranged over western, southern and central Germany by daylight, blasting synthetic oil plants and other Industrial Installations throughout the Reich, an official announcement revealed. The hughe formations of U. S. Fortresses and Liberators, escorted by "medium-sized forces" of the II. S. Fighter Command, attacked what headquarters described as "a variety of Industrial targets". Cont Inuaiice of the heavy bomber operations against the heart of the German war machine followed In the wake of American and British assaults upon both sides of tho Siegfried Line. Mnlli A A F In Action Fighter-bombers of tho Ninth II. S. Air Force struck at the western side of the Nazi defenses after a shattering RAF night assault upon Frankfurt on the Maine. The raid on Frankfurt smashed German military traffic headed for tho Siegfried Line. The Air Ministry reevnled that more than 1,400 aircraft were dispatched In the 12 hours ended at 1:30 a. m., and added that returning Halifax crew members told of seeing the smoke from three burning oil plants in the Ruhr as far as the English coast. Frankfurt, Slullgart Hit In the upper Khlneland. where air reconnaissance showed that Darmstadt had been almost entirely devastated the previous night, strong forces of Lancasters dropped more than 4,000 Incendiaries on Frankfurt and more than 2,000 on Stuttgart. The squadrons of the Ninth went into operation at dawn on the return of the British heavyweight bombers which were over the Reich In strength to attack the rail and Industrial center of Stuttgart and Berlin as well as Frankfurt. GOP Tide In Over Nation, Gov. Dewey Sees (Continued from page 1) "are getting high prices now but they know that is a war donation. They are afraid of what lies ahead when the war demands cease and they want a business administration down in Washington. The way they figure it, we've been spending a lot of money for a luug time and someone has to do something about it pretty quick." The ranchers also are upset over the high prices they have to pay for lubor and feed and they object to the lleup between the Democrats and the Hillnian political committee. Sees Nebraska Sweep Abel V. Shotwell, GOP National Committeeman from Nebraska, told reporters that "If all the people who want a change in national administration vote, Gov. Dewey will carry Nebraska by more than 100,000 votes and sweep the nation". Since he left New York on his 6. 700-mile tour, the GOP nominee has stopped ill Philadelphia, where he made his initial campaign speech; in Louisville, where he discussed foreign policy; in Lansing and Owos-so, Mich.; Des Moines, la., and Valentine, Neb. During those visits he talked with leaders from Pennsylvania, Kentucky. Michigan, Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. In a capsule, this is what he was told: Pennsylvania Border State Pennsylvania close, but leaning toward President Roosevelt. Its 35 electoral voles can be swept into the GOP column. However, if a substantial cut can be made in the 1940 Roosevelt majorities in Pittsburg and Philadelphia a drift of mine workers toward the GOP may take place in the Pittsburgh area mid the 1940 Roosevelt majority of 177.0UO in Philadelphia may be trimmed to 100,000.

President Roosevelt was appearing highly pleased with the swift progress and unanimity of purpose In his talks with the British Prime Minister and their military staffs, for Early said the conference had gone so well It probably would be completed by this weekend. "Fhe conference began today to broaden from the purely Pacific military sphere into the European sphere and into many ramifications of the whole Allied war effort. Secretary of Treasury Henry Mor-genthau, It was learned, will come here to talk with President Roosevelt in his capacity of a member of the President's cabinet committee studying economic problems arising from Nazi occupation of countries now liberated In Europe and of other countries yet to be released from the German yoke. It is probable these economic discussions will range into Germany ilself and the problems following Germany's defeat. In connection with the Pacific, the President and Prime Minister also turned their attention to selection of an over-all commander-in-chief probably an American to lead the gigantic offensive a-gainst Japan. Elsenhower May Lead The possibility that General Dwlght D. Elsenhower, the present Allied supreme commander in Europe, might be shifted to the Pacific to take supreme command there was understood to be under consideration. However, other Informed quarters leaned toward the belief that the American commander-in-chief would be selected by the two Allied leaders from one of the top-ranking Admirals or Generals who have been doing the Job in the Pacific throughout the war. Three Others Named The three names most prominently mentioned are Admiral Ernest J. King, chief of naval operations; Admiral Chester W.
