MARYSVILLE, OHIO, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20,1941 By Carrier, lOc a Week RED FORCES IN UKRAINE FACING TEST Russian Army Of South Attempting To Form New Defense Line As Nazis Press Forward—Germans Claim To Have Captured Baltic Islands Used As Soviet Aviation Bases By UNITED PRESS The, Red Army fought two great battles today at the northern and Southern ends of the eastern front. On the north, where Leningrad still held out against increasing German pressure, the Nazi high command reported that its forces— presumedly Including parachute troops and naval units—had Invaded the . Baltic Islands of Vormsi (Worms) and Muhu (Moon) and attacked the heavily fortified Island of Osel. \ The Islands are Important Russian bases off the Esthonlan coast and the Red air forces had used them as bases for attacks on Berlin and other German targets. Crisis In Ukraine ' On the south, the Red army of the Ukraine lender Marshal Budenny battled to save troops that Berlin estimated at 900,000 from a German pincers east of Kiev and to throw up a new defense line before Khar- kov and the DoneU basin. The Germans reported officially that the Kiev garrison had surrendered after heavy street fighting and a mutiny in which the Russians turned-on their commanders (pre- sumedly political commissars attached to'the army). The German attacks on the Baltic' islands basts, where the Russians reported they had destroyed thousands of Nazi troops last week, was the most spectacular operation on the eastern fron't, but the Nazi of- REVEAL SHIPS UNDER REPAIR IN U.S. PORTS LIFT VEIL OF SECRECY SURROUNDING REPAIR 1 OF BRITISH WARSHIPS IN HARBORS Fire Takes $7,000,000 Toll At Freight Yard EFFORTS BEING MADE TO PROVIDE RUSSIANS WITH GIANT BOMBERS This aerial view shows the Charlestown, Mass., freight yard fire as it was raging out of control and doing damage estimated at $7,000,000. Police from Boston and other nearby cities were rushed to the scene to handle the crowd of 200,000 persons which jammed the area and hindered fire apparatus, sum- moned from every towrt within a 60-mile radius.

Industrial Center the ,the The main Russian* war industries, the big oil pipeline running from the Caucasus to NiRUovka in the! Donets baaln, the oil fields themselves, and the trend of the entire war in the Near East this winter may depend on the ability of Budenny's army of several million men to withdraw to a new defense line and to aid the trapped Russian forces east of Kiev in breaking out of the Nail pincers. The German advances were viewed with the utmost gravity in London, where military experts were limited to expressing hope that most of the trapped Russians could fight their way out and to pointing out that a big Soviet army still is in action in the south if it can be withdrawn and rallied along the Donets line. To encourage the Russians to fight on against odds, the British- American mission to Moscow was starting or already had started from London for consultations on speeding supplies to the Red army.

RAW SILK TEST IN FLORIDA MAY OFFSET JAP SHORTAGE GOVERNMENT BEING ASKED TO SPONSOR FURTHER EXPERIMENTS IN SILK GROWING IN FLORIDA MIAMI, Fla., Sept. 20.—The shortage of silk resulting from tt>U country's strained relations with Japan and the European War has accelerated 8 movement to develop south Florida as u great silk-producing Center. Overtures *!»fady have b*rer» made to the Department of Agriculture for government sponsorship of experiment* carried on in the area cultural phas^ of during the last 41 years by Dr. He ha» pi'ef*cted Thuma* de Pampliilis, who believes Florida eventually can supply more Uiau enough silk for the entire nation i>c PoinpiiilU. who tsttiiibd his to Florida in 1800 to begin his ex periments. By persistent testing in the muck and marl of the Ever glades, he discovered that three vari etien of mulberry trees—the albo moorU, black English and moret tiani—would give three timea a much (ilk from butterfly cocoon than had, ever been produced. By 1923 he had 20,000 of the* trees under cultivation on a 160 acre tract near Miami, only to sue them wiped out four year* later by a tropical hurricane.

Marysville high chool's eleven registered a 2 to 0 'ictory over Delaware Willis under he lights at Delaware last night.' Inexperience and over-eagerness on the part of the local grldders helped Delaware as the M. H. S. earn had a decided edge in all- round play but penalties at critical ,imes-in the contest stopped drives ,hat had the earmarks of being ;oal-llne bound. All of which is not taking away any of the credit due Delaware for ts fighting spirit and tough defense when the chips were down. However, the smaller and faster local team had a wider margin of strength than the 2 to 0 score Indicates. . Scored on Safety The winning points came in the second quarter after a Marysville drive for touchdown ended in a fumble Delaware recovered on its 4-yard line. Bruce Cowglll, Delaware back, tried to punt out of danger but the 'Marysvllle players swarmed through and around the line and the punt was blocked and went out-of-bounds behind Delaware's end of the field for an automatic safety. Prior to the safety Cowgill had punted from his own 20-yard line to Devine on the Marysville 35. By virtue of some fine open field running and spme good blocking on the part of his mates, the Marysville fullback returned the kick 45 yards to within 20 yards of a touchdown. Conrad tried end with no gain; Keirns shot through center for five to the Delaware IS; Conrad hit off- tackle for five to the Delaware 10; Kierns gained five off-tackle and fumbled, Delaware recovering on the four yard line. It was on the next play the safety was scored. Penalty Prevented ikort Over-eagerness of Conrad, who was playing his first game of football, to get the remaining Delaware man between himself and a touchdown out of the way prevented Marysville from a touchdown soon after the safety was recorded. Following the scoring of the safety, Delaware kicked-off from their own 2.0-yard line. Hornbeck received on the Marysville 45 and returned to the 50. Devine gained five to the Marysville 45. Conrad then broke through right tackle, and was speeding on his way to a touchc('wyi.

The newspaper Miyako charge< that threre was a disposition among "certain official circles" to restrair the public from "celebrating" tht occasion, and called the governrrtcn attitude incomprehensible. When Prince Fumimaro Konoye the premier, formed his .third cabi net only last July 18, Miyako said Adm.

WASHINGTON, Sept 20.— Members of the house banking committee indicated today that chances for enactment of price control legislation have been materially enhanced by the demand of Bernard Baruch, head of the world war munitions board, for drastic government control of prices, wages and rents. Many of the committeemen who represent farming districts which, on the whole, are unfriendly to price controls said they were Impressed by Baruch's warning that the program he outlined was "the greatest single necessity of the present crisis." Baruch testified at yesterday's hearing that the pending administration bill, which would empower the president to authorize control of prices whenever he felt they were out of line with the public interest, was "piecemeal" and does- not go far enough effectively to prevent inflation. Urged "Ceilinjs" What is needed, he said, is an over-all ceiling for wages, rents and prices established at levels which obtained "in the early part of 1341."
