WILMINGTON MORNING NEWS. WILMINGTON, DELAWARE, MONDAY. JULY 10. 1944 FIVE Wallace Continued Prom First Page help keep the factories of America busy in the days that lie ahead." "I am convinced," he asserted In mother part of his talk, "that a main area of development after this war new enterprise, new invest-, ment, new trade, new accomplish-: mentfi will be in the new world of ! the North Pacific and eastern Asia." Cites Two Districts The Vice-President cited two re-1 gions of great development where signs of the growing importance of : the north Pacific area are already ' manifest. They were the Pacific . northwest states and the Amur River region in Soviet Asia. ; Noting the western United States had long been "held back by freight . rates and by failure to develop the : power inherent in the great rivers," ; Wallace praised "men like Norris, McNary, Bone and Roosevelt, the northwest during the past 10 years has ra..'xlly expanded." "More and more we are perceiv-; tag the importance of strengthening ; our west and especially oar north-, west." he added. "This expansion : must continue to the limit of its ': agricultural, industrial and com-; merclal possibilities. This includes Alaska, which has not yet begun to ! measure up to its possibilities." . Must Consider Asia "Our growth must not be merely ' In terms of ourselves, but also in i terms of Asia. Vigorous two-way i trade with Soviet Asia and China will greatly increase the population i and prosperity of our northwest." Soviet Asia nas more man qouuicq In population in the past 15 years and "it is quite possible that the next 50 years will see a further increase of more than 30,000,000 people." he said. The southern part of the Amur River region is certain to gain a large population. After its experience in this war, Russia no doubt will shift many industries to the east of the Ural Mountains while most of the people who have shifted to Siberia because of the war will remain, he explained. Wallace left Seattle shortly after w nwrh. He said Tuesday he ) would "report to President Roose-i velt certain definite facts which I am not at liberty to discuss here." , Many of the things he found sur-' prised him, Wallace disclosed, in-! eluding a scientific apple industry at j Alma Ata. his last stop in Siberia before entering China and a thriv-1 ing motion picture industry which 1 promises to make that city the Hol- lywood of Central Asia. Reports on Lend-Leese Aid Alma Ata. situated at the foot of I the Tien Shan heavenly mountains ; enjoys a climate almost line ai- most" emphasized) as good as that : of southern uaiuoraia. ( TvitvHiorVimifc Siberia, the Vice i President found evidence of the ! workings of the lend-lease program ; with American steel and aluminum i in factories far in the interior, American machine tools, American flour and other foods. "I am convinced from what I saw in Siberia and Central Asia that ! Lend-Lease has helped the Russian in many difficult and even critical ' situations on tne mausuritu uuui.w ; well as on the military front." Both the laborers in the factories j and those in "positions of manage-' ment" were appreciative of the aid ! rendered by the United States and j other Allies, he said, j th nmhlcrn in China, he ex- plained, is different from that in Russia, wnere aitnougn rat oesui ! for cooperation is as great, the ma- in A9fft Iibk as vet not greatly j affected domestic production. How- i ever, China is wuung ana anxiuus I HavAinn hw industries and resources I with the help of the United States, i he explained. i Both the V. S. S. R. and China, .r,tr of t.fee Greatest, land and population masses of the earth, will take the necessary steps after the war to ensure "continuing peace and to promote cultural and commercial exchanges among the nations of the Pacific to the benflt of all." He concluded with the . thought American business men of tomorrow must think in terms of a broad world outlook and that with it "American economic leadership will confer on Oa-iflr wifm a. creat material benefit and on the world a great blessing. TWO SENATORS PRAISE WALLACE'S TRIP REPORT WASHINGTON, July 9 Sena-tnr nil rn-fat. m memher of the Senate foreign relations committee, aid today he thought Vice-President Wallace's report on his trip to Asia was "wonderful." Guffey said the report showed Wallace is "evidently a keen ob server" and a man "in whom this nation may well be proud as one OI its leaaers. Senator Pepper (D-Pla), another committee member, 6aid he felt Wallace had "done the country a great service'' In making the ''dangerous' trip. He expressed belief Wallace would be asked to give the committee a personal report Russia Continued From First Page In the district, the Soviet midnight communique said. Another General Taken The Second White Russian Army, driving in south of Lida and north of Baranowicse, announced capture of 150 towns including Novogrudok f and Dyatlovo, 30 miles each south- east and south of Lida. - The First White Russian Army i meanwhile continued its advance westward in the Pripat Marshes : east and north of Pinsk and took a total of 100 towns, the broadcast j Moscow communique said.

Eyes Up Casualties Continued Prom First Page vW-)S i ISkV-: 1 1 til M troops that had been left behind in their swift thrusts to the west. The official count, lageina behind the actual toll, added 6,530 Germans from the traps east of Minsk Saturday, the Russian communiaue said. This raised the list in that sector alone to 49,632 killed or cap tured since July 4. Among Satur day's prisoners was a Major General Trobitz, commander of the 57th German Infantry Division, the Russians announced. He was the 19th German general killed or captured by the Russians since June 23. Third Loss in Three Days Premier Stalin announced capture of Lida. 50 miles south of Wilno, following German high command acknowledgement the city had been abandoned. It was the third succes sive day the Germans ruefully had admitted loss of an important strong point on the central front Saturday they conceded the fall of Baran-owicze. 50 miles southeast of Lida, and Friday they lost Kowel, another 150 miles down the line. A German military commentator said Lida was evacuated after the Red Army slashed the German line from the rear. As in the case of the prospect of immediate encirclement if they did not withdraw, so they retreated hastily. Its fall represented an advance of about 20 miles for the Russians from their last-reported positions. Marshal Stalin's order of the day on Lida, a strong point guarding the approaches to a tentative Grodno-Bialystok-Brest Litovsk line, credited its capture to tanks, cavalry and infantry of Gen. Ivin D. Chernia-khovsky's Third White Russian Army and ordered a 12-salvo salute from 124 of Moscow's victory cannon. 92 Miles from Germany Near the southern end of the active central front, the Germans asserted a Russian offensive of increasing intensity was in progress west of Kowel, with at least ten Soviet rifle divisions and three tank corps attacking "a large proportion of the Wehrmacht." A German radio announcer said the Russians were "ending wave after wave of attacks against German positions, and it is obvious that the Kowel battle is assuming an im portance equal to that of the fight ing farther north." He said "the Soviet aim is to crash through the German lines and drive west and southwest and capture. liwow ana LUDiin. On the north the peril to the Ger mans' Baltic back door grew steadily more ominous. (The London radio in a broadcast recorded by C. B. S. quoted German reports as stating "the Russians have already reached the River Bug, and have thus penetrated the government general of Poland." Berlin earlier had said Saturday that Marshal Gregory K. Zhukov's First Ukraine Army had gone over to the offensive on a front between Kowel and Lwow. Today's German communique said the Russians were attacking with tank concentrations, but Moscov has yet to confirm the launching of a new offensive there. (The Finnish communique broadcast by Berlin said the Russians had succeeded in crossing the Vuoksi River line on the eastern side of the Karelian Isthmus after heavy artillery and aerial preparation.) 100 ATTEND PICNIC OF BARBERSHOP SINGERS About 100 persons attended the picnic of Delaware Chapter, No. 1, Society for the Preservation and En couragement of Barber Shop Quartet Singing of America, at Haley's Farm, near Wooddale, yesterday afternoon.

Air War Continued From First Page which growled over sporadically throughout the day. Evacuation of children from the capital was stepped up, trains taking away 1.000 at a time. " Many hundreds of adults not needed for wartime Jobs in the capital joined the stream of evacuees and trains were even more crowded than usual this week-end. Government officials opened the first of eight deep shelters and London's legitimate theatres cut their performances sharply. About 250 guardsmen, relatives and friends were attending a parade service at Guards Chapel officially the royal military chapel of Willing-ton Barracks when a flying bomb tore into the roof and collapsed all but the east wall of the stately building on the worshippers. Buried Under Debris Many were buried under the heavy stone. Lord Hay, the colonel commanding the Grenadier Guards, was amoi'g those kiDed. Hundreds of guardsmen and royal engineers assisted the regular air raid precaution crews in the rescue work which went on through the night before an almost undamaged altar which bore the text "Be Thou Faithful Unto Death and I Will Give Thee a Crown of Life." More than 500 persons were in the winter garden room of the Regent Palace Hotel adjoining the dining room when a flying bomb struck shortly before the lunch hour but there were no deaths among the guests. The sole fatality was a waitress resting to a room on the top floor of an annex, which was not used for guests. The death list at the Bankruptcy Court was low because a robot bomb struck there in the morning before the offices were staffed. Two fire guards and a cleaning woman were killed. Ploesti Area Hit Meanwhile, approximately 1,000 U. S. heavy bombers, with a fighter escort of equal size, closed in on Hitler's Europe from the west and south yesterday, joining Allied tactical air units in a campaign designed to starve out the German war machine a campaign which is beginning to show concrete results on the Normandy battle front. As Britain-based U. S. Flying Fortresses and Liberators in one of their three attacks of the day hammered bridges in the area of Tours in France, an armada of U. S. Fifteenth Air Force heavy bombers streamed up from Italy and rained blows on the Concordia - Vega and Xenia oil , refineries at Ploesti In Romania, causing explosions which sent three huge columns of smoke curling over the oil center. Other Fortresses and Liberators from Britain pounded a German-held air field at Chateaudun some 75 miles southwest of Paris. Four U. S. heavy bombers and three fighters were missing from the Tours, Chateaudun and Pas-de-Calais attacks. Night Raiders Out In the immediate battle zone, weather grounded Allied fighter bombers most of the day, but rocket firing British Typhoons helped clear the way for the capture of Caen. As the air war continued during the night, the German radio an nounced that single Allied raiders were over East Prussia and northwest and west Germany. (One German home radio broadcast recorded by the Federal Communications Commission said the planes previously reported over East Prussia were "flying away towards the East," indicating either Russian air activity or another American shuttle raid.) In addition the Budapest radio reported early today that Allied raiders from Italian bases had flown over northeastern Hungary during the night FIRE DESTROYS VILLAGE VAL D'OR, Que., July 9 UP) Forest fires which have swept th northern Quebec gold mine belt during the past three days, destroying one village, tonight appeared to be dying down at all threatened points.
