(.*>>— Senator Ferguson (R-Mich.) said today he understood from "reliable sources" that Donald M. Nelson had been picked to succeed James F. Byrnes as war mobilization director upon Nelson's return from China. Ferguson said he understood President Roosevelt's plan was to turn over to the War Production Board chairman direction of the gigantic task of demoblization. Ferguson added he had heard that Byrnes had indicated a. desire to lie relieved of his present duties as soon as it is convenient, and that he had emphatically expressed a desire to turn over the demobilization task to some other man. Explains K. R. Statement Ferguson said the move would explain President Roosevelt's refusal to say whether Nelson would continue as chairman of the War Production Board upon his return from his confidential mission to Chungking. Meanwhile, confronted by the angry resignation of another top- ranking administrator, big, ros.v- cheeked Julius A. Krug waded into the dissension-torn War Production Board ranks today with threats of dismissal for "trouble makers." The 37-year-old ex-navy lieutenant- commander, back home from an overseas assignment of simplicity compared with that handed him by President Roosevelt as the aftermath of the latest home front flare-up, declared there will be but "one team at the WPB from now on." Any who don't play ball he said, xvill be put out. Krug outlined his new policy to the Senate war investigating committee even as Sidney J. \Veinbcrg was resigning downtown as WPB vice-chairman in charge of special- problems with a blast at "demagogic intrigues" within the organization. AVeinberg's stepping out followed a whirlwind series of developments starting with President Roosevelt's Assignment of WPB Chairman Donald M. Nelson on a confidential mission to China. While congressmen were asking while Nelson was being sent out of the country at a time when he was winning a battle with the military to get limited civilian production started in noncritical labor areas, Executive Vice-chairman Charles E. Wilson quit cold. He blamed members of Nelson's staff for spreading what he described as false rumors that he was opposed to civilian output. "This blowup was a great tragedy," Weinberg told reporters, adding that Krug's first job should be clean out of the "demagogs" and "termites" who "caused all the trouble." the southwest Pacific where almost unmolested Allied bombers continued their month-long average of putting five Japanese ships a day out of commission.

Japanese fighter planes watched from a safe distance as t'nitcd States bombs burst on Onnekotan. Nip Offensive The Bonin-Volcano island group on the southern approaches to Tokyo, apparently drew a breathing spell. American warplanps hit farther south at islands lying between their Marianas island bases and Tokyo or the Philippines. Nipponese ground troops pressed an offensive against potential I'. S. air bases in the west, within easy bomber range of Japan. There Japanese threatened Lishui in China's coastal--province of Che- kiang. The Chinese had previously been unmolested because the area was never a threat to Japan until Admiral Chester \V. Nimitz' offensive across the Pacific toward China broke through the Marianas defense line. Liberators flying out of Che- kiang would he a powerful support to B-29s now operating from westei n China. Chinese Occupy dinting Inland a Chinese column occupied Chuling, threatening the invader's Slang river line supplying Japanese armies who have been trying for months to cut China in half and nullify established United States air bases. See-saw fighting marked the southwest China battle for the Burma Road. Japanese regained the northwest gate of Tengchung, but lost strong points guarding a temple they have transformed into a fortress. The village of Fangmachiau, near Lungling. changed hands twice. British troops driving from northern Burma toward Mandala'y, captured the town of Pinbaw in a mile and a half advance. To the east trapped Japanese were reported starving to death by the hundreds in Kabaw valley. NAZIS SAY AMERICAN LANDING KEPl'LSEI) LONDON, Aug. 20.

UP)—The German radio said tonight that "very bitter fighting is taking I place between the Rumanians and German troops in Bucharest and Ploesti " One division of elite anti-aircraft troops is believed to be in the Ploe- sti oil district, 35 miies\ north of Bucharest, plus forces driven from the capital by King Mihai's rededicated army. east of Ploesti and 60 miles from Bucharest. Buzau is a rail and road junction 60 miles west of Braila, the large Danube port which the Russians captured last night.) Race for Constanta The entire IDanube delta was in Russian hands and troops which crossed the Danube on a wide front were racing for the Black sea port of Constanta and the roads leading to Bucharest from the east and northeast. The Russians captured a large flotilla on the Danube and each hour, new ships were arriving on the Dan-j ube and Black sea coast behind Russian lines, flying the Red flag. Already the Ploesti oil field derricks, north of the city, were in sight of Russian troops. Cossacks, tanks and motorized infantry on the plains before the Rumania capital ranged close to the city of 650.000, feeling out German resistance. Menace Brasoz Other Russians deep In capitulated Rumania edged within 45 miles of Brasoz, twelfth city of the kingdom with 62,000 people, and seriously menaced any chance the Germans might have for a stand. The Red army was moving forward on a 200-mile front from positions inside Transylvania west of the main Carpathian ridge to the Black sea between captured Suiina and Constanta. Red Star reported the surrender of monacled General Mak- hai Boiko, commander of the Fourteenth Rumanian Division, and said "of course Boiko's division is not yet in a slate for fighting, but the general expressed his wish to reform the division and fight against the Germans."

Testifying before a Senate military subcommittee inquiring into cartel arrangements, Biddle said the purpose of breaking up tho power of German monopolies "would not be to destroy German economic life, but to put its Industries into a form where they will no longer constitute a menace to the civilized world." "As long as they survive in their present form," the attorney-general said, "it will be exceedingly difficult 1 to develop independent industry in Europe outside of Germany." Biddle added that he did not "underestimate the difficulties" involved in his proposal. Work Readjustments "We will have to have an analysis and understanding of each one of the German monopolistic firms," Biddle said, "and then work out for it the readjustments that will be necessary. Such a program . . . will have to await the period of supervision over these companies that should come during the occupation period." Chairman Kilgore (D-W. Va.) of the military subcommittee called the inquiry, he said, to review the record of enemy penetration of the I? American economy after the last World War in order that Congress might be forewarned against future operations of international cartels. Biddle told the subcommittee that the approaching occupation of Germany made prompt consideration necessary. "Only Armistice" The period between tho last and the present World War, he stated, "was only an armistice during which the firms of Germany conducted war against us," adding that cartel contracts covered.such strategic items as berylliunj, synthetic rubber, magnesium, military optical instrumenjs, synthetic nitrogen, Pharmaceuticals and electrical and radio equipment. He asserted that Carl Xeiss of Jena, scientific optical instrument makers, barred from making range finders, submarine periscopes, bomb sights and tank telescopes under the Versailles treaty, set up a Dutch subsidiary to do the work. This firm, he said, made a contract in 1921 with Bausch & Lomb of Rochester under which the latter could not sell outside the United States without German permission and under which it was not allowed to sell gun sights, periscopes and other instruments to the French and British in 1935. Royalty Statements The American firm had to supply detailed royalty statements from ! which Xeiss could determine the types arid quantities of instruments purchased by United States armed forces. Biddle testified. •* Frederlch Krupp, ordered to destroy its machinery after the first world war, transferred its patents, licenses and secret processes to Bofors, Swedish manufacturer, and continued with the manufacture of heavy artillery, tanks, anl l-alreratt and other armament, he added.

Headquarters spokesmen lifted the secrecy that has shrouded the movements of the American Third Army for three days to reveal that the Yankee tanks and armored troop carriers were running riot through the valleys of the Marne and Seine and sweeping in on the Reich at belter than a mile-an-hour pace. The Marne line was breached at a half dozen vital points along a 70-mile line from Meaux to beyond Chalons and American guns and men were streaming across the bridgeheads in great strength.

(UP) —Lieutenant-General Kurt IJitlmar, official radio Berlin commentator, admitted tonight that Germany faces the prospect of defeat, and suggested tacitly that the Nazis would welcome a compromising peace. Dlttmar prefaced his admission with 'probably the gloomiest war review that his German audience have yet heard from their home radio. He acknowledged the extent of the Allied victories in northern France, and then broached the question of a "deal" with the Allies. "One tiling Is certain," he said, "we continue in the enormous slruggle. We'must continue as lone as our enemies are maintaining their war aims and as long as reason does not substitute for the desire for destruction." Dittmar said the fighting in norlhern France reminded him of 1940, except that it was running the opposite direction. "The development of the situation in tho past few weeks may have given rise to the hope among our enemies that their aim of Germany's military defeat is nearer than about three months ago," he- said. "The course of events seems in fact to support, to a large extent, their opinion. We do not hide from tlie German people the seriousness of the sltutaion at the present moment." "To fight to-tho last is a commanding necessity," he said. "It is the only way our enemies will have placed before them the necessity of answering the question: 'what is the sense of sacrifices and losses.".'"
