TUESDAY MORNING. JULY 29. 1841. THE AMAHILLO DAILY KEWa AMARILLO, TEXAS PAGE THPJE» ONE BRITISH SUBMARINE GETS 17 AXIS SHIPS foal Dodges Depth Charges and German Island Patrol ABOARD A BRITISH SUB- MARINE DEPOT SHIP, July 20 (U.PJ (Delayed)--Officers of a "sub- marine credited with sinking 17 Axis ships in the Aegean and Mediterranean told today of frantic German soldiers seeking clemency behind a Greek seaman they had forced to pilot their craft In un- familiar waters. The submarine had just re- turned from patrol duty in the Aegean, where it-had sunk six German troop and provision ships. The vessel also sank the 5,232-ton Italian tanker Strombo when it attempted to sneak out of Istanbul where it had been- repaired after a previous torpedoing. Four Ger- man vessels were destroyed by moonlight !n one of the few re- corded night surface actions in- volving a lone submarine. An Italian troop ship also was sent to the bottom. The commander*L account ol the actions follows: "Early one morning we spotted a convoy of two Italian ships escorted by one destroyer and air- craft in the Aegean. They obvious- ly were troop ships. \Ve fired tor- pedoes at each and the first, of about 4,OCO-tons. went down. The other vessel was of about 2.500 tons. I don't believe we hit her. The destroyer pursued us and dropped depth-charges for about one hour but none was very close anu the remainder of the day was quiet. "The following morning we en- countered one craft cariying about 50 German soldiers. We came to ihe surface and opened fire with our 4.7-ineh deck guns which sank her shortly. "She was the first of a series of craft flying the German flag vhcih we met in what appeared to be an obviously small, but rather general, reinforcement of German garrisons in Greece and Crete. went up in great bursts of flame as result of our gunfire. Only one craft returned fire with a small anti-aircraft gun. "One schooner continued burn- ing for more than three and a half hours, attracting German aircraft, but fortunately they did not locate us. **We were forced to board the last craft and force the soldiers off so we could place a charse in her hold and blew her up. -When we went alongside, the German soldiers yelled: "The captain is Greek.'

BLAKESLEE NEW YORK. July 28 (ffj-- The discovery that stainless steel is im- proved by giving it a little bismuth. the chemical that "man takes in medicine and which the feminine ^ half uses also in cosmetics, was ^SVtde public today. [V^TTie bismuth, in amounts of one- iienth to one-half of one per cent, makes stainless steels which can be machined twice as fast. Machining means sawing, cutting and boring, jobs that form -a high percentage of the costs of finished stainless steel products. It is estimated that the machin- ing costs will be cut by one-quarter. There is also an important speed- up in handling, particularly in de- fense manufacture. The discovery was made at the Battelle Memorial Institute, Co- I lumbus, Ohio, by H. Pray, R. S. I Peoples and P. W. Fink. The bis- muth, they said, does not decrease the corrosion resistance of stain- less metal, nor affect any other im- portant properties, like strength and toughness. Bismuth is a lustrous, reddish- white metallic element. Why it makes stainless steel easier to cut. the Battelle scientists said, is not clear. The discovery was soon-sored by the Alloy Casting institute, a group of a score of the nation's stainless steel foundries. Heretofore, where ease in cutting was necessary, industry has used stainless steels alloyed with selen- ium or sulphur. But both of these, the Battelle report stated, sacrificed [some corrosion resistance, while se- lenium in addition made welding difficult- Bismuth does not hamper welding. |Army War Chest Rapidly Expands WASHIXGTOX, July 28 (.3*) -- Swift Senate action today clothed Douglas Mac Ait bur, former U.

How farj ! the swift vote could be taken as' an endorsement of the administra- tion .attitude toward Japan was not known in view of the lack of de- bate.

Hitle wpuld make the Allies large con- cessions, providing he was recog- nized as master of Ihe continent o Europe. But this plan, which prob ably loomed large in Berlin si: weeks ago, now must seem like * dim cloud on the far distant hori- zon: Then there is another aspec of the world turmoil which is being greatly influenced by the fiero Russian resistance. That is the Jap- anese program of expansion. Then can be small doubt that the Nip- ponese will be largely governed in their further moves by the outcomi of the great battle now being waged in Western Russia. If the Nazis break the Red.oppo- sition' and surge forward to vic- tory,,the Japanese may try to take adyshiase cf the position for f;ir- thef"" expansion. Should the Bol- shevists increase in strength, Tokyo is likely to sit very tight and avoic trouble with Britain and the United States.

Reflecting credit demands for seasonal operations and expanded farm production to meet national defense requirements, Texans this year have borrowed $23,957,630, gain of 47 per cent over last vear's first half total of 316.442,627. Loans during the period reached a total of 9,377--a gain of 2,991 members. The Amarillo Association has made 152 loans to stockmen and farmers for $1.056,486.24 in the per- iod of January 1 to June 30, 1941, as' compared with 127 loans for $514,271.49 during the same per- iod last year. -..--v...-- Trucks Driven by Brothers Nil DALLAS, July 28 (U.W--Two trucks driven by brothers collided six miles south of Dallas early today. James Williamson, 22 years old, the younger brother, was killed in- stantly. Robert Williamson, 24, was treated at a Dallas hospital for superficial injuries and released. Police said the Williamsons lived at Gushing, and were working on; a road construction job. James was 1 driving north with a load of stone. Robert was driving south with another load. Wife Gels Only Dower's Rights WASHINGTON, July 28 (/P)--The will of Edward B. McLean, former newspaper publisher who died ves- -erday, left $300,000 to Rose Davies, sister of Marion Davies, but cut lis wife off with only dower rights. Filed in district court here today, Jie will left $5,000 to each of three children, two sons and a daughter. :t was dated June 19, 1931, before Maryland court. The document provided that if any of the heirs attempted to break the will that others were an order freezing Jap- ianese assets in the United States iand a proclamation putting Philip- pine armed forces on virtualry war-time basis." Officers To Islands Clarifying the freezing order, the government made plain tonight that for the present at least, it would not be applied in such a way as to detain Japanese ships in United States ports. Admiral Kichi- saburo Nomura, the Japanese am- bassador, called at the state de- partment seeking light on the order applied to ships. Sumner Welles, acting secretary of state, assured him. that prompt clearance would be given, under present con- ditions. Besides Mac Arthurs nomination, he war department moved to strengthen Philippine defenses by ordering 16 officers, ranging from second lieutenants to captain, to proceed there. Whether they would be accompanied by troops was not disclosed. Meantime, the House passed an $8^063,238,478 defense appropriation bill, carrying funds for expanding the army, navy and merchant ma- rine and for a new war depart- ment building described as twice as big as tiie Empire State Building. The measure now goes to the Sen- In addition to the army and navy funds, the bill carried $1,698,650,000 for the maritime commission for the construction of 541 new cargo vessels and for expansion of ship- building facilities to step up the nation's merchant ship output to two daily by early next year. Provides for Crews The army's share of the total, $4,760,203,813, included funds for the complete equipment and mainten- ance of a combat status for one year ol 1,727£OQ men--309,000 more than the present enlisted strength-- and for so-called critical items of equipment for a 3,000,000 man land force. Critical items are those which require a long time to produce and which are not manufactured com- mercially, fuch as artillery and anti-aircraft equipment. The navy would get 51,569,374,665, including funds to increase its en- listed strength from 258,000 to 369,- 000 to provide crews for the rapidly expanding fleet and to boost the marine corps from 46,000 to 75.000 men. Naval funds also included $300,000,000 for construction and improvement of shore bases, many of them on outlying islands; S125,- 300,000 for new ordnance produc- tion facilities and $160,000,000 for additional ship repair facilities. .. .--V...-- Liquor-Runners Take Lesson From the War OKLAHOMA CITY, July 28 (/T)-- Charles E.

However, even by Berlin reports, ihat jaw of the" trap has been long stalled at the river. Army Destruction Emphasized The German alternative in event of a decisive victory at Smo- lensk might be a vast southward turning movement toward Roslavl and Bryansk to get behind the Rus- sians on the Mogliev-Orsha-Smo- lensk triangle before they could re- treat. Berlin commentators hint at some such development. They are stressing, for German listeners, the argument that territory, even the taking 6f Moscow means little in this war. The Hitler objective is destruc- tion of the Red Army in the field, they contend. And failure of that army to cling to the Dnieper cross- ings might well prove fatal to Rus- sian hopes of a further general re- treat in the. center. . ; ...--V...-- ' New Destroyer Christened CHARLESTON, S.
