There we;-, ',wo tremors, as ,57 the seismologists .ut It, one at 12:39 a. m. EW>' last night and the second at 4 52. But the center of the quake has not yet been determined. Some experts put it 27<> miles northwest of New York City, others outside Boston"; and still others maintain it was worst In Cornwall, Ontario. Cornwall sounds like the best bet. fljr reports 'say several frame houses were cracked open here, end n celling collapsed injuring one man. Damage Not Severe Elsewhere, - however, no damage has/been reported. Incidentally,-'the experts predict that there may be another quake within the next few days. On the other side of the Atlantic news of the earthquake has claimed more space' in the British press, than the false Belgium radio claim that Germany had surrendered. ; Here at,-home, 1 Mrs.'' Eleanor Roosevelt ,haV r n'ccused her- political •' cnemleV 'of "HIs'torYfiig-' her views on trie race.- question!

In short, Germany lacks tanks, the materials lo make tanks, and the gasoline to propel them into battle. He also has lost the men to man them. 25 Divisions Dcslroycrt Originally, the Nazis had some GO divisions In western Europe. Yet, General Eisenhower said last week Hint 25 had been destroyed and 18 more torn to slircds In northern' France alone. In southern France, the equivalent of five or six divisions have been captured, not to mention the men killed and wounded. Thus, some 50 of those 60 divisions have cither been blotted out or clawed to ribbons. For the defense of the homeland, Hitler can draw nine divisions from Norway, seven from Finland and four from Denmark. And. he might pick up 20 to 23 from Huhgary,-Yu- goslavla, Greece and the Aegean Islands. But they'll have to move fast to beat the Allies to thsii- homeland. Even so, they already have been drained of their tanks and technicians.
