V u,y \j\i,iiiany (jut us JIL'IIVV iirtll- lery in aclioii on the western front today in an .apparent eftoi-t to stop the sternly, methodical advance of the J.'raicli toward its west wall fortiiiealions. A communique of the high com- » mnnd, 21st of the war, sold at iris n. in,: "There Is heavy action by the enemy's artillery on the heights south of Saarbruecken." This communique was interpreted to mean that the Germans had brought up big guns because French operations were now threatening Important German positions. It was reported unofficially that, the French had captured many mines In the famous Saar valley coal district. Numerous other mines, nominally s tm under German control, had been rendered unworkable because French big guns constantly shelled principal roads. The French guns were not bombarding Saarbruecken. but were concentrating their • fire on three sides of it. Unofficial reports said that at the northwestern-extremity of their front the French pressure had become so heavy on both banks of the Saar river and on the right (east), bank, of the Moselle neai the Luxembourg frontier, that sections of the west wall were in serious danger. l-t. (UP)—Germany put its lienvy nrlil- Another '103' May Be Reached Today Today's high temperature may reach that ot yesterday's when slightly mere than 103 degrees were registered on the official H-eather thermometer. At noon, the mercury was at 100 which was the same as yesterday noon Yesterday's high was the record for the 1939 slimmer. IS i Germ au Plane pels Bomb Cargo Heavy German reinforcements were-reported to have been rushed to Trier, Saarlonis and Saarbrueck- en. Other reports said German' reinforcements were arriving opposite Strassbourg, on the Rhine. French troops in the Warndl Forest sector were reported to have passed the C.irling-Ludweiler road. It- was reported that .farther, west the French had mode an important gain;.-between Sambruecken-' arid' —. -.-,.. — wei'e' reported cooperating with French ones in pounding the German heavy artil : lery which had been sent to the Saar front. Usually: reliable quarters said that German air -losses on the western front far exceeded French losses as reported h'y the Germans. Rain and wind slowed fighting on the western front. • German guns caught a- detachment of French soldiers who were digging trenches near Saarbrueck- en, and it was admitted that the French suffered seme losses. French artillery quickly retorted, it was said, and silenced a German battery so - that the troops were able lo complete consolidating their position. French advices said the allied navies hart sunk one and possiblj two German submarines in an intensified hunt for the raiders. It was said that between 20. rmJ 25 German submarines were believed to be on the high seas at.pres- ent but, that if the present rate of destruction centinued- the number should be appreciably reduced by Die end of October. •The increasing seriousness with which the Germans now view French operations was indicated by a report from Luxembourg that the German.'! had blown up their railroad line between the French frontier- and Trier <Trevcs), close to the Luxembourg frontier. The railrcad has Its southern terminus at Metz in France. The Luxembourg report was that considerable debris landed in Luxembourg territory. The Melz-Trier line would have been of great strategic value to the French if they had taken it. u passes through a triangular stretch ot country which, it was reported, the Germans had bene unable to fortify properly before the war started. There was some belief in French • quarters that tho Germans might find it advisable to abandon Saar- bruecken soon, and retire to prepared positions north of it Reports indicated that the Frejich had made progress both east nnri west of the city. Premier Edounrd Dala<iier, in a statement On his conference Tuesday with Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, said: "We found that our British colleagues have an unshakeable resolu- tkn to conduct the war until final victory." But no defection could halt France's struggle against Germany, he added.

Moi'genlhau. however, declined to predict an improved budgetary plc- luvo, because, he -said, it was still too early to' determine the effects of the current economic, situation on employment and ciVminoilitv prices.
