So far us Holland Itself Is concerned, headquarters said that the operation "continues to proceed exactly according to plan." Canal crossings and bridges were described as "obvloua objectives" of the airborne troops. Capt. Ludwig Sertorious, Nazi Transocean correspondent, admitted that despite grim German defense Allied forces had entered Eindhoven and added: "The airborne troopB have linked up into major battle groups at some points. They have also received fresh reinforcements. 'Summoning up a tremendous concentration of strength, the Americans yesterday succeeded in widening their penetrations in te Mael sector of Dutch Limburg and they gained ground to the north and northwest." Lieut. Gen. Courtney H. Hodges' Americas First Army battered through heavy enemy resistance to score new gains south of Aachen near the Luxembourg-German frontier, while on the Moselle, Lieut. Gen. George S. Patton, Jr., made additional progress. Weather and the security "blackout" combined to cloak details of most developments on the Moselle and Luembourg front and little actually was known of operations in Holland. Eindhoven topped the day's news because it is a city of vast military and Industrial importance. With a pre-war population of 94,000, the town bristles with factories and is the home of the Philips' Electrical WorkB. These have been bombed by Allied planes in the past, but probably contributed to the needs of the German war machine up to the moment British troops swept in.

The senate was expected to adopt the joint conference report today, followed by house approval, with the measure probably going to the White House tomorrow. Chief feature of the George bill, minus the two senate amendments, is a provision extending the present office of war mobilization, headed by James F. Byrnes and established by executive order, until after the war. Also extended Is a restraining and re-employment administration created by the President and headed by veterans administrator Brig. Gen. Frank T. Hines. The bill guarantees the solvency of state unemployment compensation funds by permitting the states to borrow from the federal government in the event of need. Federal loans are also provided to public agencies for post-war public works planning. Another threat, to an early recess was removed when a motion to recommit a compromised version of surplus property disposal legislation was defeated by the narrow margin of 169 to 150. Election Shadows Vote Had the move by Rep. Hale (R) Maine been successful, the legislation which has had house and senate conferees dickering for weeks would have gone back for further consideration. Members made it plain in their demand for adoption of the compromise that congress would hardly dare face the November election admitting that "we can't legislate." The report won house approval by a vote of 174 to 91. Thehouse voted 239-90 against government transportation for stranded war workers to their homes or ill at his home in Frankfort, Ind.

Both scale around 200. Fairly 1'olent Jlttckllelil The buckfleld will bonst no one like Tony Butkovlch. but It will present most of the familiar faces of 1943, with some potent additions. Al the moment, the first string back- field could .be considered Hay Cchullz, quarterback; Chalmers Elliott and Boris Dlmancheff, hull-backs, and Ed Cody, fullback. The two halfbacks were letter winners last year and Dimancnen will be among the nation's great running backs this year, if he continues to improve. All In all, it's going to be up to the other teams to provide the bur den of proof. Purdue has the mak ing of a club which conceivably could go through the season with out a defeat. But they'll he happy i here if the team wins six of those 10 back-breakers and we think it will finnish somewhere in that vi cinity.

Fifth Army Seizes Monte Pratone In Gothic Line Battle (Continued uom page 1) The rugged mountain masses, along with the determined resistance of veteran German troops fighting from dug-in positions on mountain crests and concrete pillboxes, constituted formidable obstacles. The Eighth Army Inched Its way forward in the face of stiff opposition between the Adriatic coast and the southern frontier of the tiny republic of San Marino. Greeks Near Kiuiini Greek troops reached the northern edge of the Rimini airfield where they found Panther tank turrets dug in by the Germans in the same manner as the enemy placed these defenses in the Gothic Line. Plans of the desert air force car ried out accurate pinpoint attacks, somelimes only 400 or 500 yards ahead of the Allied troops, and neutralized these strongpoints. Kvpand Mnrnno liriilgehead The Eighth's bridgehead across the Marano River was further expanded and the villages of Cerasolo and Faetano captured. Canadian troops entering the hitler battle from the east coast city of. Rimini advanced to the Ausa River, three miles southwest of Rimini. German tanks and infantry put up a bitter defensive battle for the River line. -Exceptionally stiff fighting continued in the battle for San Marino in the Monte Labate vicinity, with the defending Germans desperately employing tanks and mortars. The Nazis counter-attacked in the Lc giotte area, using reiiuorcemems which, according to one prisonei. were sent down through neutral Kan Marino.

V-Day Promises First Aid to All of U.S. 'Slipping' Beauties WASHINGTON, D. C. Slowly hut surely the War Production Board is setting the stage for V-Day so returning servicemen will greet their dream girls instead of incipient gravel Gerties. War work combined with the wartime WPB grip on strategic face and figure first aid fixings have left their mark on the one-time glamor girls who have been waiting for their heroes to come home. The latest WPB contribution to beauty is the new availability of bobby pins and hairpins. These gadgets are the keystones of the fabulous skyscraping pompadours reported to be the current excitement in Paris. Shampoos and soaps to polish up factory dust hair are also becoming available i n .greater quantities through the courtesy of WPB. Hair dyes, tints and rinses In all colors re available for a chaser ana nair brushes to shine up a lady's lockB , are also on the market. Girdles can be had. thanks to ; WPB, and the new models appearing on the market come complete with that almost forgotten luxury, the zipper. The inclusion of zippers in fall and winter dresses eliminates the mysterious "bunchy" effect reduced by a row of buttons landing out nillitantly against one side of a wartime frock.

There's no doubt in the minds of anyone about the dynamite pucked in that 10-ganie card which includes almost every standout team In the Middle West except Notre Dame. The only question is how far the 1944 edition of Purdue will go a-gainst this back-breaking list of opponents, with a new coach and practically every regular gone from the brilliant aggregation which curried it through the 1943 season without a defeat, or a tie. -Two Regulars lie) urn With only two men back who played regularly last season, in spite of the imposing list of 13 lettermen returning, it's a question as to what the newcomers will do under fire but it's defenite that the Hoilermak-ers will make life miserable for their 10 opponents, win or lose. Troubles for Hoilermaker opponents will start at right end where Frank Bauman, marine trainee from Harvey, 111., remains from last 'year's eleven. Bauman, weighing 215 pounds, is terrific both on offense and defense and is a great punter. Two other major lettermen, although they didn't play regularly, . will provide support for Bauman Nate Laskin of Youngstown, O., and Joe Collins of West Lafayette, Ind.
