JTNION COUNTY'S HOME DAILY MARYSVILLE, OHIO, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4,1941 By Carrier, lOc a Week WEATHER Winner with po**I)>t« cn Btttwti*? Mid Smutty SOVIET STILL ATTACKING AT MANY POINTS NAZIS BOARD SHIP FOR PRISONER EXCHANGE •?*;#;-; Claim Capture Of Thirty Villages In Ukraine Region During Four-Day Counter-Attack—Germans Continue To Hammer At Line Near Kharov With Drive On Moscow Considered Possible By UNITED PRESS The Red Army answered Adolf Hitler's claims of victory today with reports of battering counterattacks on scattered fronts from Murmansk to the Black Sea, including a four-day offensive that resulted in the recapture of 30 villages in defense of the vital Ukraine industrial area. The southern front offensive, which" appeared to be part of large- scale Russian operations to check the German drive on the Donets Basin, was reported In war dispatches to Moscow to have dec!' mated three Rumanian cavalry regiments. For the time being, both London and Moscow reported that the Eastern front appeared to be holding back the Nazi onslaught although London dispatches indicated that the Germans were attempting to strike through north of Kharkov and again stab directly at Moscow— probably the "gigantic operations' Hitler mentioned in his speech yea- terday. Leningrad Battle Describing fighting on the Lenin grad front, a Moscow communique said that Russian units during Sep- temba* had killed 9,500. Germans, destroyed'seven artillery batteries, 35 anti-tank guru, 45 machine guns, 22 mine thrower* and 60 trucks and captured four heavy gun batteries, 42 anti-tank guns, 37 machine guns and sub-machine guns, 12 mine throwers, 28. flame throwers, 180 carts, 200 horses and a large amount of ammunition, German armies were reported today to be driving toward Kursk, 120 miles north of Kharkov, in what military quarters believed might be the opening phase of a desperate attempt to reach Moscow. Hitler Reference Experts suggested that the reports might explain the references of Adolf Hitler, in his speech yesterday, to great new operations "which will help to destroy our enemy In the east." Vichy radio, giving as its authority advices received from the Russian frontier, assorted that troops pf the Southern German army of Field Marshal Karl Rudolf Gerd von Rudstedt were striking in the direction of Kursk. Similar reports were received in military quarters at London. There had been vague reports earlier, in fact, that the Germans were striking as far north as Orel, 00 miles north of Kursk and 200 miles south of Moscow.

C.

While she waa the eighth Amerl can Flag or American owned shi to be sunk by Axis action in thl war, she was the first in which th loss of a large number of America lives was apparently involved. Sh was torpedoed, presumably by a Axis submarine, between Brazil an the western bulge of Africa o Sept. 27 and a freighter picked u one of her lifeboats containing 18 men. There remained a possibility that the missing Americans were in another lifeboat, not yet picked up. Senator Lister Hill, D., Ala., majority whip in the senate, said the sinkings "shows the plan and determination of the Nazis to carry the war to the Western Hemisphere, It is just one more warning signal to us that we ought to quit all appeasement and take every possible step in our defense." Before the I. C. White sinking entered the picture, congressional leaders believed that Roosevelt would seek a piecemeal revision of the act, first requesting authority to arm merchant ships.

Ten Mayo specialists in vision, hearing and other fields are making! ambulances, first hand observations of student pilots—-and are even taking the Civil Aeronautics Board flight course to follow their "laboratories" bU'p by casts. The studies are being undertaken with the cooperation of the North west Alt' lines, with whom Mayo are engaged in another study of avi atiun medicine—development of ai Union County is to be the center of the defense relocation project for this state, according to a report of the Ohio Defense Relocation Corporation made by A. L. Sorensen, vice president According to present plane this county will .have more than three times as much area in the project as any other county in the state. Of the 14,000 acres of land that has been purchased of optioned in Ohio to relocate rural families displaced by construction of defense plants, 8,025 acres are located in Union County, according to the report) of Mr. Sorensen. Acreage in other counties accepted Include: Hardln, 2,009; Logan 2,046; Marion ,664 and Crawford, 1,884. Three Forms Purchased The greater part of this land in Union County still is on option as eeds for only three farms have >een recorded in the county. The hree farms, totaling 635.05 acres, re located in Millcreek, Washing- on and Taylor township. Nearly 150, of 70-acre to 120-acre arms included in the project will be available for rent by farmers displaced at the Ravenna Ordinance plant, the Plum* Brook Ordinance >lant near Sandusky and other areas, Sorensen said. Funds to finance the $897,000 project have been loaned to the Relocation Corporation by the Farm Security Administration and will be repaid from rental payments. The majority of the farms are to be leased by the defense corporation. While the purchase of large farms has been included in the project, the three farms in Union County average slightly over 211 acres. The larger farms are to be broken down it is understood, into small-size tracts. Construction of buildings on some of the larger farms will be necessary in some cases, which woulc create a building boom in the county. While the primary purpose of the relocation program is to provide farms for families dispossessed by the huge defense industrial pro grams near Ravenna and Sandusky the new family-size farms will be available to any family needing a small ferm, the state official jxjinted out. This policy is necessary, it wa explained, because many of thi families! who lost their farms ii Portage and Sandusky countie have already obtained new farms In doing no, however, other farn families were dispos-sessed.

BEING .HUNTED >IN THE SOUTH DEVIL'S TOWER, Wyo., Oc. 4.— eorge Hopkins' Involuntary camp- ng on top 805-foot Devil's Tower went into its fourth day today and he parachutist settled down to wait rescuers. Ernest K. Field nhd Warren Gorell, skilled mountain climbers of he U. S. Park Service, who went fourth of the way up the tower yesterday only to return when dusk ivertook them, hoped to have Hop- tins on the ground by tonight. Only 0 persons have ever scaled the tower. Although the possibility had Ween ixplored, there appeared to be imall chances that Field and Gorrell would superseded in their rescue attempt by a helicopter—an airplane that ascends and descends almost vertically. Park Ranger J. F.

They had four sub-machine guns, three rifles, a gunny-sack filled with pistols, and a case of dynamite. They were already suspected of the murder of Marion Miley, 28, top-flight woman golfer, and'her mother, Mrs. Fred Miley, in Lexington, Ky., and authorities feared there would be a chain of violent crimes before they were captured. The Raided Prison Gang state highway police, augmented by local police, were patrol- ing highways and laying traps for them, without much hope of catching them at once. They had released two hostages taken in a daring raid on a gang of prisoners working on a highway yesterday, in which one of the three was liberated to join the gang. The leader was Forrest Turner, 20, who believes he is a lady killer, as Dillinger did, who likes dancing and golf, and has escaped Jrorn Georgia prison camps five times. One of his companions is Sim Scarborough ,a murderer, who has escaped from prisons eight times. RIO DE JANEIRO, Oct. 4.—The American steamer Del Norte has rescued 17 survivors of the American-owned Panama tanker i I. C. White which was torpedoed and sunk inside the American neutrality; zone, presu m e d 1 y by an Axis submarine, it was announced today. Eighteen other survivors were saved by the American freighter West Nilus. . Both the Del Norte and the West Nilus are due here Tuesday. The I. C. White carried 37 dffl- cers and men, oil Americans, but there may have been more men aboard. The Standard Oil Company of New Jersey, which formerly operated the boat, said the regular crew was 37, but additional men may have been added since she be- j gan sailing under British orders. No Details Known The ship had been torpedoed Sept. 27, and the survivors had been I picked up at 8.17 south latitude,', •34.58 west longitude, or about 4501 miles east of Pernambuco. Further details were not given. It was said in New York, that the tanker was one of 80 put in use to carry supplies for the British. It was under the registry of the Panama Transport Company, a subsidiary of Standard Oil of New Jersey,'because of neutrality law restrictions on United States flag vessels. ' The New York shipping register said the vessel had sailed for Capetown, South Africa from Curncao, West Indies, presumably with a cargo of petroleum. The I. C. White left Newport News, Va., Sept. 7 for Curacao. She had put in there for refitting after a cruise from Cartagena, Colombia, to Halifax, where she had arrived Aug. 8. The tanker was the eighth American-owned ship to have been sunk since the war began. Apparently she went down near where the Robin Line's freighter Robin Moor was torpedoed and sunk last May 21.
