Behind the major sectors, how ever, there was the promise of big operations to come. Big Things In More The close siege of Budapest was impeded by a third day of torrential rains, but the Russians used tbe weather as cover for movement of thousands of infantrymen into the front lines beside tbeir tanks and Soviet artillery shelled the Hun garian capital's defenses methodically. In the southwest Latvian area, where Marshal Stalin listed thirty German divisions as trapped and in the process of annihilation, the Ger mans said Soviet attacks had eased somewhat southeast of Llepaja, but were still going strong in the Auce area and had made some small gains.

CLINTON lO STORE Advancing Yanks Close In Oil Ormoe Sector (Continued from psga 1) Fighting was concentrated In the narrow Ormoe corridor, but farther down In the valley, the Japanese were digging In for a new stand to meet an almost certain surging Yank advance. ffeavy United S'ates artillery aid ed our fighting men and pounded Jap positions in advance of the line of fighting as far south as Ormoe Itself, some IS miles away. Considerable damage was caused by the tons of heavy shells which poured Into the Ormoc-Valencla area. The big guns demolished warehouses. supply dumps snd lighted numerous fires as well as concentrating on enemy troop positions. Japanese lines of communication, bivouacs, and supply areas took a pounding, .toe, from Leyte-based army fighter planes which dive bomb ed Jap positions near Valencia and Palompon above Ormoe on the west eoast. Enemy attempts to reinforce their troops with mea and supplies were harassed by our planes which dam aged numerous barges and small craft with concentrated machine gun fire. Japanese resistance continued in spasmodic fashion in the Dagaml ar ea near tbe island's east coast where the Ninety-Sixth Division troops un der Ma). Gen. James L. Bradley strove to wipe out remaining Japanese positions. Tbe enemy is entrenched in this area in concrete pillboxes hidden in the high grass on the bill sides but flamethrowers and the attacks of artillery men proved potent weapons. Japanese air activity over Leyte, harassing in intensity in the closing days of last week, was negligible and credit went both to the accurate fire of American anti-aircraft batteries and smashing raids against enemy air bases in the central, northern and southern Philippines. General MacArthur announced that since Oct. 20, American antiair craft batteries on Leyte have shot a total of 144 enemy aircraft out of action ; either totally demolishing or probably destroying them. American Liberators in continuing strikes against Japanese airfields in the Visayas Islands to tbe west of Leyte. dropped 260 tons of explosives which badly damaged runways and Ignited large fires. Fifteen or more enemy planes were destroyed on the ground in the raid, and fires In dispersal areas damaged others. Three enemy interceptors who rose to meet tbe Liberators were shot down by escorting fighters and oth ers were damaged. FDR Landslide Sweeps in 25 House Seats 'Cratlnaad uosn pegs I) Earlier, the prospect of certain Democratic house control was em phasised when, with only 92 districts in doubt, 22 Democratic incumbents seeking re-election were yet to be beard from. The candidates who were swept along on the Roosevelt landslide had only to bold these outstanding seats to come up with a working house membership of 227 congressmen their greatest strength since 1940. Congressional returns, lagging be hind the presidential tabulations, disclosed that the tide of seat-captur ing was running with the Democrats. The Roosevelt-supporting and Roosevelt-aided candidates had made off with at least 18 Republican seats by mid-morning as against only two of their own won by the GOP. Among tbe Democratic gains were four Republican seats in Connecticut, three In New York, at least five In Pennsylvania, and one In Ken tucky. Tne surprise Republican house casualties included two house stalwarts from the minority side Rep. Melvln Patricia Ann Coverdale, R. R. 4, Rockvllle, Ind. was admitted to the county hospital Saturday as a surgical case. Gordon Wm. Huffaker, R. R. 4, Chrisman. 111. was admitted to the county hospital Saturday as a medical case.
