Floors and rugs should be well vacuum-cleaned or swept. Woolen garments kept in closets and not packed away for the summer should be frequently sunned and brushed and care should be taken to keep all woolen material oil the floor. Woolen rags or discarded woolen clothing left carelessly about is often a serious source of moth infestation. Plated Penthouses . In ages B.

Prussia Lines (Ceattnnea riusv ( 1) set afire at Insterburg, undergoing its second bombardment in as many days. More than 30 blazes were set off nd two railway trains were blotn up by direct hits at Gumbln-nen which was enveloped in a dense pall of smoke. As ammunliion train was demolished and other violent explosions shook the Stallupoenen railway area. Baltic Port Attacked Long-range bombers simultaneously blasted the Port of VentBplls on the Baltic, setting a huge conflagration that consumed workshops and stores in the port. An undisclosed number of German transports also were hit and Ventsplls shuddered under the blasts of the explosions. Pilots of the Red Banner Baltic Fleet air arm contributed to the toll by sinking an 8,000-ton Nazi supply vessel In the Baltic Sea. Three smaller craft were destroyed by the northern fleet air arm at Varanger Fjord. Belgrade Battle Increases Fury of the offensive on the ground at Belgrade where Russians and Yugoslav forces, Joined by Bulgarian troops, battled the German defenders through the streets. (All of Belgrade has been liberated except for two districts where three Nazi divisions have been engaged in house-to-house fighting. According to a communique broadcast by Yugoslavian Partisan bead-quarters.) In northern Transylvania, the RusBlan armies swept over 80 Inhabited localities, including the rail station at Felsoe Rons, three miles between the frontier of Czechoslovakia and northern Transylvania. Operating with Romanian troops, west of the town of Blstrlta, the Soviets wiped out more than 600 Nazis to take the town and rail station at Zalau. Prisoners are Taken Some 1,000 German and Hungarian soldiers were taken prisoner along the northern Transylvania sectors, according to the Soviet communique. ' . (A Hungarian communique revealed that a tenacious struggle was In progress north of Szeged where other Soviet attacks were intercepted. The Hungarian bulletin also related that a tank battle south of Debrecen had been especially severe, the Moscow -communique did not mention these reported actions.) U. S. Submarines Sink 32 More Japanese Ships (Continued uom pfa 1) tion of 356 Japanese Bhips of all types and reported that 649 other vessels were probably sunk or damaged for a grand total of 905. This total, however, does not Include Jap ships reported sunk 'by American submarines . . . Overall Enemy Jjoas Huge Over the same four and a half months period submarines alone have destroyed 204 Japanese ships of all types, placing the enemy's overall ship losses for the period over 1,110 vessels of all types. In discussing the recent American successes, Forrestal said . that the situation "now requires a new eval uatlon of the whole Japanese ship ping position." 'I think the Japs are now at the point where further shipping losses will limit their operations at sea," Forrestal emphasized. The secretary pointed out one of the fleet operations during the past four and a half months is in itself an overwhelming victory. But he added: 'But the steady accumulation of these blows is steadily and relentless ly crowding the Jap back into his own corner. For many months Jap anese naval strength has been at bay and eventually It must stand and fight . . ." The secretary warned, however that the enemy's remaining naval strength has a potential effective ness far beyond Its numbers, parti cularly now that It is operating under land-based air cover In its home waters. New Blown are Coming The secretary said the recent fleet blows against the Philippines, Formosa, the Kyukyus, Patau and the Marianas "are the opening moves In the unremitting pressure that is to be applied against Japan in the western Pacific."

MacAr-thur's headquarters in the southwest Pacific that this is a great coordin ated action that clearly can only be the preface of great things to come. Strafe Jap Columns A statement from Gen. McArtnur told how planes of his command, operating under the strategic directives of Lieut. Gen. George C. Kenney, had carried out low-level strafing attacks against Japanese columns on the Island of Mindanao in the Philippines, destroying 62 enemy trucks and staff cars. i These attacks were made simulta-1 neouBly with the devastating strikes t by carrier-based planes of Admiral Mitscher'B hard-hitting force, now the acknowledged terror of the sup posedly Impenetrable waters of the East China Sea.
