11 (UP) The Royal Navy has organized a new British Pacific Fleet, powerful enough to cope with anything the Japanese have left afloat, which is prepared to operate under the command of either Adm. Chester W. Nimitz or Gen. Douglas MacArthur, 'was disclosed today. The new Pacific Fleet, described as one of the greatest battle fleets ever mustered by the British, is in addition to a reorganization of the British Far Eastern fleet in the Indian Ocean under the significant title of the East Indies Station Fleet.

London newspapers, disclosing these first major steps to implement Prime Minister Winston Churchill's promise to send powerful British forces into the war against Japan, said that the new Pacific Fleet will be under the command of Adm. Sir Bruce Fraser, former commander of the Far Eastern Fleet. Vice Adm. Sir Arthur John Power, first captain of the famous aircraft carrier Ark Royal and later assistant chief of the naval staff, succeeds Adm. Fraser.

Judge Doubles First-Offender Numbers Fine ManNwith Record Assessed $100 A first-time numbers offender, with a criminal record in robbery and larceny dating back to 1936, was fined $100 double the "ordinary" fine of 150 imposed on first-time numbers offenders by Judge G.

Malcolm McDonald, in Criminal court today. The Judge also assessed the costs on Anthony Sacco, 26, of 1119 Bluff St, when Sacco pleaded guilty to a lottery charge. In de fault of the fine Sacco was sen tenced to 60 days in jaiL Court Asks Recommendation Before imposing sentence, Judge McDonald asked Assistant District Attorney Earl Adair: "What recommendation does the district attorney's office have to Mr. Adair did not reply, explain ing later that 'sentences are up to the court." The judge's question ob viously referred to criticism leveled last week by District Attorney Rus sell H. Adams against the courts for not imposing jail sentences more often in numbers cases.

In fixing sentence, Judge Mc Donald said; "It seems to be the unwritten law around here to impose a fine for first offenses in numbers. You have a record, but not in numbers, so I will impose a heavier fine than ordinarily." i Arrested on Any. 9 Sacco was arrested Aug. 9, when ponce iound him running a numbers business in a cigar store at 310 Ferry St. The officers confiscated $27.63 in cash and $8.04 in numbers slips.

Hiat was apparent yesterday when Mayor Cornelius D. Scully said he did not favor such tax, proposed In a civic study by the Pennsylvania Economy League recently. The mayor's stand came after long deliberation on his part, and followed the attitude adopted by the majority of Council. One-Way Ticket' The proposed one per cent tax on wages of all residents and nonresidents who work in Pittsburgh, would, if translated into law, provide a "oneway ticket" out of City Hall for the party that sponsored it, one Democratic leader asserted. Mayor Scully did not indicate what specific taxes he would favor to broaden Pittsburgh's tax base.

He did hint that Pittsburgh was entitled to expect "temporary" aid from the State when he declared: "With a 200-milion-dollar surplus, or more, in the state's treasury, it is entirely proper that those cities badly affected should get temporary aid." Not Permanent Solution Mayor Scully added that he did not consider such aid a long range solution. He said a strong central city Is essential In the interest of a metropolitan community, and "it is up to the Legislature" and the state to help us." He said limitations in the laws affecting Pittsburgh alone should be removed. A "new attitude" on the part of the public, the Legislature and the state toward cities is needed, Mayor Scully asserted. Labor Protests Plan Organized labor has raised its voice to protest against the wage tax proposal. The Steel City Industrial Union Council, CIO.

ad mitting municipal finances need overhauling, asserted a wage tax would "hit hardest the people who can least afford it." Such a tax would constitute a "retrogressive tax measure," because, the SCITJC said in a statement, in reconversion, the "greatest single need will be the bolstering of purchasing power," and a wage tax in that period would have the opposite effect. President Anthony J. Federoff announced that a committee of the Industrial Union Council had been appointed to prepare a report on taxation. Members include, besides Mr. Federoff.

Joseph G. Goney, Milton Weisberg and Alfred L. Oyler, officers of the Council, and Harold Ruttenberg, research director of the United Steelworkers of America, CIO. Marine Indicted In Second Slaying WASHINGTON, Dec. 11 (UP Marine Pvt.

Earl McFarland, New Market, 21-year-old Guadalcanal veteran now awaiting trial for the death of 18-year-old Dorothy Berrum, was indicted today in a second slaying that of Mrs. Mar garet Fitzwater, 63-year-old widow. The District Attorney's Office charged that McFarland was the young marine with whom Mrs. Fitzwater drank coffee in a restau rant before the slaying. Assistant U.

S. Attorney John Fihelly said po lice had noted similarities in the two slaylngs. Both victims were beaten about the face and attacked McFarland is scheduled to go on trial Jan. 8 'for the death of Miss Berrum. British Occupy Burma Rail Key SOUTHEAST ASIA HEADOUAR TERS, Kandy, Ceylon, Dec.

11 (UP) Troops of the British 36th Divi sion occupied the railway center of Indaw, in Northern Burma, without opposition yesterday and advanced 16 miles southeast to take the town of Katha, on the Irrawaddy River, a communique announced today. Fall of the two strongholds brought units of MaJ. Gen. Francis Testing's forces within 200 miles north of Mandalay after an advance of almost 100 miles from Mo- gaung since August. In Western Burma, the communique said, the Japs withdrew from high positions east of the bend in the Chindwin River and East African forces moved within two miles of Shwegyin.

Col. Edward H. Heller, nominated by President Roosevelt to be a member of the Surplus Property Board, are beyond reproach, a parade of California witnesses told the Senate Military Affairs Committee today.

The witnesses appeared at the request of Col. Heller and Senator Sheridan Downey Randolph C.

LUCEY Scrippa-Howard Staff Writer WASHINGTON. Dec. 11 A pool of some four million'' draft-deferred men above 26 is subject to the Gov eminent 'a new "work-or-get-in-uni- form" edict, and top manpower of ficials predicted today the action would be effective in helping to find men critically needed in war in' dustry. A large percentage of the four million already is In useful war work, but it is believed that the number needed in munitions plants, estimated at 90,000 to 300,000 can be recruited through a tightening of draft deferment regulations. Critical Items Needed The ultimatum calling for a drastic crackdown on men who have been free not only from mili tary service but also from useful war work was Issued by war Mobilization Director James F.

Byrnes It reflected Washington's growing concern about shortages in critical battle-front items. Ninety per cent of what Mr, Byrnes was shooting at in issuing his order, according to lniormed oi-flcials, concerns the cases of those workers who. granted deferments because they were in essential war work, have Jumped subsequently from this job to another and often the second was not contributing to the war effort. Farmers Curbed Deferred fanners and farm labor couldn't get away with this, because the draft law provided that once men left the farm after having been deferred, the penalty was induction But job-skippers in industry haven't been under such compul sion, and in the vast percentage of cases, it was said, they haven't been tracked down and brought to ac count by the local boards. In principle, if the worker gave up the job for wmcn ne- was ae-ferred he also gave up the defer ment that went with it, but in most cases it hasn't been possible to fol low through.

Subject to Induction Since last spring, when the armed forces decided they wished to induct no more men over 26. men above this level have not been checked closely by the draft boards, but from now on if they do not participate in the Home Front war effort they'll be made subject to quick induction. No elaborate changes in regula tions are needed, it is said, but a "tightening up" is certain to result now all along the line. Apart from regulations, lt is ex pected here that the Byrnes order will bring to local draft boards a new realization of the seriousness of the labor shortages in war in dustries and lead directly to review of over-26 deferment cases. Thousands Leave Army Already thousands of soldiers have been taken out of the Army to work in war industries where manpower shortages have been felt.

Lists of super-critical" items have ranged from seven to 17 categories of equipment. A few day3 ago Paul v. mcnuix, War Manpower Commission cnair man. said 9000 men were needed in artillery ammunition plants, 28,500 in shipyards. 1400 in artillery and gun carriages, 2100 in rockets, 3000 in radar, 10,200 in foundries and 6200 in aircraft.

Management and labor leaders in the tire industry have agreed to a seven-day week the acute shortage of heavy-duty tires is remedied, and today Lt. Gen. Brehon Somervell, chair of Army Service Forces. WPB Chairman A. Krug and other officials were pushing plans for increased output in many critical lines.

Warned by Patterson At the same time. Undersecretary of War Robert P. Patterson warned that Home Front complacency must be dissolved under the acid fact that the war is far from won and called on the nation to subordinate all else to the job of giving its fighting men "the stuff to shoot with." He echoed official alarm at a growing shortage of critical munitions backed by a WPB report that October output of high priority battle supplies was below schedule in every major category, including neavy artillery shells. Mr. Patterson told industry and labor to abandon thoughts of reconversion and concentrate on war production until the men at the front "set the hands of the clock to the hour of peace." that constant tickle, tickle, tickle caused by coughs due co colds bronchial disturbances, 1 oversmoking.

Co St. bs Ma. 1 VII JStfy Ml it Engine Boiler Explodes, 5 Hurt Door Rams Caboose; Steam Bums Woman The boiler of a Baltimore Ohio Railroad "shifter" engine exploded yesterday near Willock in a freak' ish accident which injured two en' ginenjen, two trainmen in a ca boose ahead, and a woman seated in an auto at a neahy crossing. The explosion shot a 200-pound smoke box door (the circular disk on the front of the engine) ahead into a caboose like a shell from a cannon, injuring two men in the caboose. At the same time, the boiler "backfired" to injure the en gineer and fireman.

A spurt of steam caught a parked auto, burn' ing a woman occupant. Injured in Hospital The injured, all detained at Homestead Hospital, are: Thomas Quaill, 65, engineer, 842 Johnston Glen Hazel Homes. Burns of the face and lacerations of the head. Condition critical. William Wall, flagman, 223 Joyce Terrace, Hazelwood.

Injured left shoulder, burn of the face and abdomen, and lacerations of the head. Critical. Charles Scrofani, 36, fireman, 710 Middle Ave, N. Braddock. Eye injuries, burns of the back, arms and knees.

Aaron Owen, 66, conductor, 422 Zara Knoxville. Burns of face and arms, and lacerations of the fingers; Mary Vaharchak, 153 Meadow-gold Munhall. Burns of the face and neck. On Steep Hill The "shifter" engine was pushing a string of empty cattle cars bound for Washington, when the accident occurred. The train had passed Rand Station and was going uphill towards Willock, a sec tion of track said by railroaders to be one of the most winding, and offering the "steepest pulls" on Wheeling run.

There are 13 cross ings between Hays and Route 51 at Willock. The boiler exploded at McBride Crossing with a terrific which rattled windows in nearby homes. Like a cork from a bottle, the smoke box door shot ahead, ripping the roof from the caboose in which Mr. Owen and Mr. Wall were riding.

The door was followed by a jet of live steam, and the caboose caught fire. The backward force of the explosion caught the engineer and the fireman. The squirting steam enveloped part of the auto in which the Vaharchak woman was a passenger, as the auto waited at the crossing for the train to pass. 93-Year-Old Twins Separated by Death BERWICK, Dec. 11 (UP) Death today separated the 93-year-old Pennington Twins, believed to be the oldest twins in the nation, when Wilbur C.

Pennington died at his home near Forks, one half mile from the home of his brother, William. His death came after two weeks of Illness. William, with whom he went to the polls to vote in the presidential election last month, visited him for the last time Satur day night. Real Jazz Tunes Hard to Find as Pack of Cigarets STATE COLLEGE, Dec. 11 (Special) Genuine jazz is as difficult to find as a pack of cigarets, according to Dr.

Edward J. Nichols, professor of composition at Pennsylvania State College. Dr. Nichols contends that "This stuff commonly called jazz, the music which Americans catch in juke boxes and on their radios, isn't jazz at "Jazz," he adds, "has gone back to the 'dives' where it first came from and where it always has been." Dr. Nichols, who once organized jam sessions among Perm State musicians, contributed to "Jazzmen," a book on jazz history and its leaders, which was published in 1939; and was co-outhor of an article on jazz jargon for "Vanity Pair.

Today's air waves are practically devoid of real Jazz, Dr. Nichols says, because so many people who couldn't play good jazz spoiled 't by trying." S0! graiTiRi "l00 TABLETS isT" Wcxuft Lakcist Scuei At 10 Wage Tax Paid By Check-off Plan (Continued from Perfe One! tax was paid directly by employes principally by those living here but working outside Philadelphia, who file returns and make quarterly payments. For both groups of employes, the total to the city amounted to 88 per cent of the total tax payments about 88 of the 100 million dollars thus far paid in. The other 12 per cent or about 12 million dollars came from the provisions of the municipal income tax ordinance levying the same rate of tax on net profits of "businesses, professions or other activities" conducted by Philadelphia residents, whether in or outside the city, or conducted here by non-residents. The tax is a wage-and-profits levy, but organized labor, which has opposed the tax for years, has always described it as a tax on the pay envelope and the recent studies showed that 82 per cent of the total tax payments came out of the pay envelope before it was handed to the employe.

War Workers Pay The city now has 500,000 workers in war industries alone and gets 100 per cent collection of the wage tax from them because, regardless of where they live, they are employed in plants and factories within the city and the employer deducts their tax. It's not so easy to collect from Philadelphians who work outside the city or from the state or Federal employes, neither of whom are sub ject to the payroll deductions. Under the law, it's up to each city resident who works outside the city or who is self-employed in a business or profession, to make a return by March 15 of the money he earned last year, and pay his tax In a lump sum or quarterly installments. Penalty for fraud or failure to make a return is $100, plus costs and interest, or a 30-day jail term. The same procedure applies equally to non-residents who engage in a business or profession here.

Affects 'Everybody' The law has been construed to apply to virtually any person who does any sort of work, on a regular basis, in Philadelphia or who has a residence here. It applies to lawyers and account ants who may work here only a few days a week and who are re quired to pay tax on an allocated share of their earnings. The same applies to managers of interstate businesses who spend part of their time in a Philadelphia office, or to railroad trainmen who work here a few days a week as part of their regular duties, and to seamen on ships out of the Port of Philadel phia. In the case of accountants, If they have an office here, they are required to pay the full tax on all their annual net profits, whether paid in Philadelphia or not. Persons living in Philadelphia and conducting a business elsewhere, also pay a full tax.

If the business is a partnership, the Philadelphian pays one per cent of his share of the net profits. The tax does not apply to Income from investments, which are subject to a four-mill personal property tax which is also Included In the city budget. Convict Grumbles But Leaves Prison JOLIET, HI, Dec. 11 (UP) Emil Lustig, complaining and grumbling, was evicted today from the Illinois State Prison where he had finished "a mighty comfortable" year. Lustig, 52, who has been arrested 27 times on confidence game charges, had asked Warden Joseph Ragen to let him stayiin the prison beyond the termination, of his one- year sentence.

But the warden was firm. It's the law, he explained, "you will have to get out." As a free man, Lustig plans to go to New York and work in a res taurant operated by his wife. Man fo Buy $500 Bond With 'SmaiJ Change' BUTLER, Dec. 11 (Special) After saving "small change" for eight months, Charles Baney, of 115 Cleveland will buy a $500 War Bond this week with his 548 quarters, 265 dimes, 170 nickels and more than 400 pennies.

GREENSBURG, Dec. 11 (UP) Judge George H. McWherter today filed a decree setting aside the 20-day suspension order previously Imposed by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board on Theodore Manolis, Jeannette restaurant proprietor. The liquor board had issued a ci tation against Manolis claiming that he permitted minors to frequent his premises, sold liquor to and employed minors in his restaurant. The suspension order became effective Nov.

21. Germans Retreat Over Roer River (Continued from Perje One) had been pinned down for a full week in bitter fighting 1000 yards from the outskirts of the town. German artillery shelled Ha- guenau heavily during the night. But a young tank commander told correspondent that some of their big stuff was duds. Another dispatch from the Sixth Army Group said French First Army units eliminated the pocket of Germans pinned against the Rhine in a nine-mile stretch between Kembs and Basel after 22 days of fighting.

The pocket was created when French armor reached the Upper Rhine north of Kembs. Reports Yank Drive A German front reporter said the American Third and Seventh Ar mies had hurled 16 divisions some 240,000 troops into an attempt to break through the West Wall to the Rhine along an 80-mile front. On the southern sector of the First Army's offensive front, the situation was. slightly confused. One report said the Americans were fighting inside Gey last night, though an earlier report late yesterday asserted the town had been captured.

A German counter-attacK was repulsed at Strass, a half mile southwest of Gey and a mile and a half west of the Roer. Knock Out Pillboxes In the past 24 hours alone, Third Army Doughboys and tanks have knocked out 25 pillboxes and 30 fortified buildings, mainly in house-to-house fighting in the Saarlaut-ern and Sarreguemines sectors. The Germans counter-attacked at least 11 times along the front, but each time were thrown back to their initial positions. Six counter-attacks were repulsed around Fraulautern, on the northwest edge of Saarlautern, alone. Elements of the 377th Regiment captured two city blocks in Fraulautern, including a large hotel where a pitched battle was fought in an old-fashioned ballroom with Tommy-guns and hand grenades.

Many houses in the Saarlautern and Sarreguemines area were re ported to contain two or three cellars or sub-cellars, with each level practically an Individual fort. GIs call attacks on these underground structures "mouseholing." The 134th Infantry of the 35th Division occupied Folpersville, twoj miles east of Sarreguemines and a mile from the German border, while other elements pushed a mile southeast of the town. The 26th (Yankee) Division near Wittring, five miles of Saareguemines, captured a large underground German factory. German artillery fire on the Saar River front has increased greatly, dispatches reported, with the 90th and 95th divisions esti mating that 18,000 rounds of enemy shells have fallen on them in Dil-lingen in the past three days. Flood Nazi Positions In Central Holland, German positions slowly were being flooded as waters poured through a 300-yard breach knocked by RAF bombs in a dam 12 miles northeast of Nijmegen.

Allied aircraft also cut 12 railway lines leading to the Dutch coast and destroyed four locomotives and 40 trucks. Fifty-one trucks were damaged. Eisenhower Broadcasts Warning to Germans LONDON, Dec. 11 (UP) A proclamation broadcast to Ger many today reiterated Gen. Dwlght D.

Eisenhower's vow that the Nazi army "will be beaten" and warned the German people against joining military organizations or "enticing other persons to join such organi zations." The proclamation, broadcast by the BBC, was the eighth in a series explaining the plans of Allied Mili tary Government in Germany. "Allied forces will occupy ever larger parts of German territory until the National Socialist Govern ment (Nazi) and the German armed forces will finally capitulate or have been brought to their knees," lt said.
