Entered at second -class matter at the Postofflce in Philadelphia, Pa., under Art of March 3, IST'J. we TON BRINGS 1 1B1Q WAR REFUGEES Many From Phila. ; On Vessel; 380 Children Aboard Special to The Inquirer Krw YORK. July 13. Carrying a score of Philadelphians among her 1630 passengers, 380 of whom were children, the U. S. liner Washington docked here today after her final venture Into the war rone to rescue Imperiled Americans. A placid voyage was reported, in vivid contrast to the big ship's preceding run. in which she was stopped ar.d threatened with destruction by a German submarine. PEACEFUL VOYAGE Nerves lacerated by the methodi cal bombardment of England quivered throughout the first half of the voyage, passengers said, but the Jitters soon evaporated and the final days at sea were "peaceful as before the war." Although the Washington was jam-packed with refugees taken aboard at GaJway, Ireland carrying 600 more persons than her listed capac-i:y few complaints were heard from men and women overwhelmed by relief at the safety of the United Sutes. More than a third of the 1610 aboard were children, the 380 youngsters taming the vessel into a vast floating nursery. PLANT DESTROYED Among scores of accounts of the efficiency of the German bombing raids on Great Britain, none was more graphic than the story told by Mr. arid Mrs. Webster Plass, of 826 ZL Haines st., Germantown, of the destruction of a plant managed by Plass on the Isle of Jersey in the English Channel. The plant was owned by the Sharpies Corp.. engineering firm at 23d st. and 'Westmoreland st., and Plass said, "was literally blown to bits." With them on the Washington were two guest-children, Minor Lee Rogers. 10, and his sister, Josephine, 12. who win wait for the war to end with their grandmother. Mrs. John Rogers, In Lexington, Va. SPANIEL SAVED THEM Both Mr. and Mrs. Plass and their younj charges gave most credit for their own escape from the raiding airplanes to "Shadower of Ware," a emsxt and gentle spaniel whom the children obviously adored.

"He'd bark and bark his head off when he heard the slightest hum of propellers and that was our signal to hop to a shelter." Until three years ago, Plass lived at the old Green Hill Farms, City Line and Lancaster ave. He went to London to represent the Sharpies engineering firm, moved to Jersey to supervise the plant there, but had to evacuate his wife because of the incessant Nazi air raiding. CANARY ALSO HERO Another pet of the voyage was a canary owned by Mrs. Hattie W. Hil-ler, fleeing from seven years in Bournemouth, England, who was met at the pier by her son, Hugh L. Hlller. an investment broker, of 6066 Drexel rd., Overbrook. The canary is named "Frank Smith," for the son of Judge Frank Smith, Philadelphia Common Pleas Court No. 5. The young man is to marry Mrs. Hiller s 18-year-old granddaughter, Marianne. SIX AIR RAIDS Further testimony of the efficacy of the German air raids in reducing British production came from R. O. Griffis, of Bethlehem, Pa., employed for four years as chief metallurgist for a steel company in South Wales. "During the last week I was there," Griffis said, "there were six early- morning air raids." "None of the bombs struck the mill itself, but that was the Nazi objective. So the mill operators decided to shut down temnprarily until they could get more adequate protection for it." HATED TO LEAVE Miss Xenia Clumpitt, who will be 76 on July 22, said she "hated to leave" Torquay in South England. the most beautiful place in the world." for her home at 6805 N. 11th St.. She had been there 14 months, she said, engaged in tracing her ancestors, who emigrated to Massa chusetts in 1660. "I didn't make my plans to go," she added, "until the State Department asked one to do so." . Even younger was the 10-month- old son of Ernest Simpson, former husband of the Duchess of Windsor. Simpson remained In England with his wife, the former Mrs. Mary Raf- fray, of Baltimore. OTHERS FROM HERE Passengers included also: Mrs. Margaret D. Carrington and her children.

Rumania, following in the totalitarian footsteps of the Axis Powers, heeded German advice today and ordered hundreds of thousands of peasant soldiers back to the farms in time for the wheat harvest. The decision to "deconcentrate" the army coincided with reports that German farm experts would be called in. Many technicians were released from military service, too, in the move to keep Rumania's production of foodstuffs and other materials which the Reich needs badly up to par. German and Rumanian diplomacy, meanwhile, were linked in a common pressure to turn the totalitarian regime of Premier Ion Gigurtu still further toward the Axis. An authoritative report was that Rumania would withdraw from the Balkan Entente unless Turkey got New York's favored Hotel Continental Breakfast tla lutzcssc fa, Betes!

N.T. rid of officials who engineered its mutual-assistance pact with Great Britain and France. Iron Guardists (Rumanian Nazis), emphasizing their personal loyalty to King Carol II, at the same time attacked Gigurtu's new Cabinet as "provisional and disunited" and demanded a "pure nationalistic government." REPORTS VISIT TO BERLIN NEW YORK, July 13 (A. P.). Premier Ion Gigurtu of Rumania is going to Berlin to discuss Balkan developments, a British Broadcasting Corp. broadcast intercepted by NBC reported today. A date was not given. HOOD IS REPORTED SEVERELY DAMAGED Continued From First Page warships from that fortified island, only about 55 miles from Italy. The big men-of-war have been sent to Alexandria, said Gayda, and Malta now is only a temporary shelter for lighter craft. Malta's air fields were reported heavily damaged. (Coastal batteries and anti-aircraft guns drove Italian planes away from Alexandria Saturday. The airraid alarm lasted only a few minutes.) , Gayda went on to say that Italy's share in the Axis war plan was fourfold: The first objective is Malta; the second, such British bases in Eaypt as Alexandria; the third, to paralyze British sea power in the Mediterranean by scattering warships and convoys, and the fourth, to protect Italian shipping and communications between the mainland and East Africa, i f POINTS TO CONSEQUENCES If Britain lost Egypt, Gayfla said, it would lose the use of the Suez Canal, its ships ; no longer would have a refuge from Italian attack and London would have to abandon political control over the oil fields in the Persian Gulf and the whole Arab world, and lose all influence in Greece and Turkey. Fascist planes smashed at Malta's air bases and its naval anchorages today, following mass bombing of the British naval units at sea. The High Command said a "mass" of Italian planes, flying from many bases in Italy and Africa, descended at dawn yesterday upon the three divisions of the British naval force. The British warships, it was explained, separated and steamed eastward at different speeds on Thursday night, after having been bombed all day. CLAIMS TOLL OF BRITISH "At least two cruisers and one battleship were certainly and repeatedly struck with large-calibre bombs," a communique claimed. The Italians admitted the loss of "one of our destroyers" by British naval bombardment. The crew was declared safe. Two defending British planes were reported shot down in the attacks on Malta, and hangars and planes on the ground were bombed and machine-gunned by the raiders. Italy's claims of Mediterranean naval successes (denied virtually inH tne wnoie by the British) include a British capital ship and a destroyer sunk, and bomb damage to other important units, including the great battle cruiser Hood and two aircraft carriers. Italy acknowledges it has lost two destroyers and a submarine. Sailors' Services Offered Free to Bring Children NEW YORK, July 13 (U. P.). Joseph Curran, president of the National Maritime Union, today telegraphed headquarters of the National Child Refugee Committee an offer to furnish seamen free of charge if a ship were provided that would evacuate children "without discrimination" from Europe. The telegram, sent to Marshall Field, chairman ' of the committee, said the union "deplores the situa tion in which only children of wealthy English families are brought to this country. At last!

P.)- Although heavily outnumbered, a small British garrison still is holding all its positions against the Italians assaulting Moyale, Kenya, near the frontier of Ethiopia, British head quarters said today. The communique said the besieged British had inflicted heavy losses on the Italians. (The Italian High Command said its forces had occupied a fortified village near Moyale.) In the western district, the British communique said, two Italian columns approaching Fort Capuzzo were "effectively engaged again yesterday." Britain Echoes John Paul Jones LONDON, July 1Z (A. P.). Paraphrasing John Paul Jones' T have only begun to fight," Great Britain's First Lord of the Admiralty, A. V. Alexander, told Americans in a broadcast tonight that the British hope to fight out the war and "destroy" Germany from their besieged Island homeland. The fight, he said, was as much for the "national Inheritance" of the United States and Canada as for England's preservation. Alexander declared that in the last eight days the British had shot down possibly as many as 130 invading planes. He added. "To America, I say in the words of your Paul Jones: 'Surrender? Why, we're only beginning to fight!' " (The quotation, actually "I have only begun to fight!" was made by the American naval hero, John Paul Jones, when his little squadron was overwhelmed by superior British sea strength In August of 17SJ. I . was his answer to a demaiiJ for surrender by the British man-o'-war Sera-pis, vhen Jones' ship, the Bon Homme Richard, was crippled by explosions of her own guns and sinking in battle. The battle continued with the Bon Homme licharci and the Serapis lashed together until the Sera-pis struck her colors). SUCCESSES AT SEA CLAIMED BY REICH Ships Captured and Blockade Torn, Says High Command BERLIN, July 13 (A. P.). -Germany claimed today to have successfully challenged Great Britain's greatest historic weapon the navy in "successful operations overseas" by the German fleet. The High Command formally asserted that these operations presumably directed from Norwegian waters had resulted in the, capture of valuable prize ships, and military commentators declared this proved the British, blockade to have become "ineffectual in a high degree." But while that blockade is being torn apart, they added, the German counter-blockade is becoming "more perceptible day by day." 'OPERATE ON HIGH SEAS' "Unit of the German Navy now can operate on the high seas without the English fleet being able to prevent the Germans from conducting the trade war in Atlantic and other waters," they said. In the same connection, responsible quarters ridiculed the announcement of the British Admiralty that it had cut off Germany from the Atlantic by a mine belt from the Shetland Islands, near the Norwegian coast, to Greenland. "Besides," these quarters added, "the British apparently have overlooked the fact that we are in possession of an extensive stretch of the Atlantic coast since the collapse of France." The High Command reported the sinking of 24,767 tons of "enemy cargo space" by one submarine, and it was added semi-officialiy that 40,-000 tons of British shipping were damaged yesterday by the air force alone. German planes also were said to have sunk a patrol boat and a 2000-ton merchantman, and to have greatly damaged five other merchant ships. Nazis already had claimed the sinking since the start of the war of a total of 4,329,213 tons of "enemy merchant shipping or shipping space usable to the enemy," a figure more than half of Britain's aggregate losses in the entire World War. (An authoritative British source declared the Empire's losses were less than one-fourth ' of the tonnage cited.) Germany Honors Udet For Work in Air Force BERLIN, July 13 (A. P.). (via radio) Lieut. Gen. Ernst Udet, chief of the German air force's technical department and most famous of Germany's surviving World War fliers, has received the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross, the German wireless reported tonight. He was credited with a large part in building up the German air force and, the official citation said, "in addition he has also given an example of fighting courage for the men of our air force." British Women Pilots Have First War Casualty LONDON, July 13 (A. P.). Great Britain's first woman pilot casualty of the war was announced tonight. She was Mrs. Elsie Joy Davison, a member of the women's section of the Air Transport Auxiliary, whose Job is to fly new planes from factories to Royal Air Force stations. Mrs Davison was killed during an instruction flight. She became interested in aviation when, as a girl of 18, she saw Charles A. Lindbergh land at Paris at the end of his trans -Atlantic solo hop in 1927. Nazis Cite Allied Row Over Norway BERLIN. July 13 (A. P.). Addenda to alleged French documents, which the Germans are publishing, purported today to disclose a rift between the French and the British, last April over the Allied withdrawal from mid-Norway, with the French urging drastic British naval action to wrest Trondhcim from the G?rman. The British felt the German air force made such an operation im possible, according to the documentation. Document No. 28 was slated to be a French Government memorandum for transmission to Neville Chamberlain, then Prime Minister, objecting strongly to the proposed withdrawal of Allied forces above and below Trondheim, an action which, eventually, was carried out. At one point the purported message read: "One must act quickly or one will lost the war!" The Germans say they found the documents in a special railway car captured on the Loire on June 16.
