Ambling Anesthetist Strikes Again in Mattoon, Illinois MATTOOX.

Russians Open Giant Drive for Krakow, Nazis Say ('ominu-'d I-' border today in a bloodless invasion lhal broke Germany's last bold on the Black sea and pushed the reluctant Rulgarian government into a declaration of war against the Reich.

Scores of oilier towns and villages fell, including- the Danube towns of Silistra and Turlucala. and front reports said the- Soviets were driving rapidly southward toward the Turkish and Greek borders. The fall of Varna left only the main Pdack sea base of Burgas still nominally in German hands, and that seaport. -ITi miles below Varna, was expected lo bu occupied without a struggle. The triumphant Soviet -march across Bulgaria, coupled with Partisan and Allied blows in Yugoslavia, virtually sealed the doom of an estimated ".">(>.OIMI to ;iT."i.OOfl Germans now penned up in southeastern Kurope and promised widespread political repercussions throughout the Balkans. Moscow spokesmen said Bulgarian troops were fraternizing with the Soviets arid distributing proclamations throughout (lie country to explain the new ."(Illation to the public. Sofia declared martial law for all Bulgaria, presumably to facilitate the roundup of German soldiers whose arrest was demanded by Moscow. (The Soviet announcement that the invasion began yesterday gave the lie to German reports that Russia 1 ! troops crossed Bulgaria and en- tei'e-e! (treoco on Thursday.) BulKiirs at War 1 Inl^arian troops offt-red no resist- a IK-- and at li p. in. Sofia announced thai Bulgaria was at war with Germany, thus placing the country in the anomalous position of being momentarily a belligerent against both Gi-'ri.iany and the Allies. Moscow, still keeping the jittery Bulgars on the fence, withheld its reply to the Sofia government's armistice appeal, but announced that the question was being "examined." Flying columns of the Third I'krainian Army swept south along the Black sea coast from Mangalia and occupied the Varna naval base, •10 miles inside Bulgaria's 1!MO frontier, while Second Army units on the inland invasion flank took the Danube river port of Ruse (Ruschuk). At Ruse, the Soviets seized 112 German warships, including 12 largo vessels, but the occupation forces at Varna discovered that 7 U-boats and (!7 other small men-of-war had been scuttled by their crews. ROMF,. Sept. 9. (UP.) —Allied troops captured two dominating heights north of Florence and advanced to within 20tl(i yards of the important communications center of Pistoia today, forcing the Germans in the western sector to begin a withdrawal behind the Gothic line. Violent rains and thunderstorms restricted operations along the en- tira eastern sector, however, and the British Kighth Army made only small local gains in the Conca river area, near the Adriatic sea. Allied troops captured Monte Morello and Monte Senario, X and 10 miles respectively, north of Florence, flanking highway f>5 from which the Germans have been able to overlook the entire area. The enemy's loss of these dominating heights above I he- Arm, rivf-r was followed by increasing signs the Germans were withdrawing their main forces to new positions behind the Gothic line's fortifications. The I'nited States Fifth Armv sent patrols 2 miles north of captured Prato to within about a mile of Pistoia; another 6 miles north of Altopascio to the southern portion of the village of Pescia, and still another 4 miles north of Lucca to a point near Saltocehio on the Serchio river. In the coastal area further west, several American patrols crossed the Serchio river and moved into the swampy lagoons and canals beyond. Some of the 1 patrols, front dispatches said, drew considerable fire ranging up to 7,"i millimeter guns, but others encountered only maeliinegun and sniper fire evidently from rearguaid units left to protect the enemy's wit hdra wal northward. The Americans now control the Serchio river line from the coast to a point near Saltocchin, including the crossing immediately north of Lucca, where they took Monte San Qttirico. a mile and half north of Lucca, yesterday and continued to advance northward. British troops made some gains at the 1 western base of the Conca river bridgehead in the Adriatic sector, capturing one hill feature and the village of Palazo, one mile southeast of San Savino, and the villages of Croce and Menghio about a half mile further west and each less than a quarter of a mile above the Conca river. Croee was the center of much of the bitter fighting in the last few days in the Adriatic sector, where the British repulsed a series of enemy counterattacks without the loss of any of their gains in their drive for Rimini, coastal gateway to the Po valley. Dewey Calls for Fast Work on Security League Continued From Page One ary 20 and the progress of the Japanese war so far along that plans will be advanced if not fully completed." Dewey said in response to a conference question that he had no present plans to speak in person to members of the armed forces. He said he had read in the newspapers that his first two major campaign speeches would be shortwaved to the troops overseas. "You mean, like going to Hawaii to campaign?" Dewey said in an obvious reference to President Roosevelt's recent trip to Pearl Harbor. Questioned about statements in his Philadelphia speech that the administration was planning to keep men overly long in the army to lift postwar unemployment. Dewey said he did not mean that large-scale ills- j charges from the armed forces j should begin now or that an ap- ! preciable number should be lei out : before complete victory Is won. j Demobolization. he said, was an Hilmiiiisl rative matter, adding: Dewey declared "they have been * proposing that America should try to buy the good will of the world." There were screams of "attaboy" from the mixed audience of men and women. "The international organization that. we will achieve at the end of this war will only be commenced after 60 nations have been brought together and have agreed on the structure," the nominee continued. "Now, if we work at top speed with all of the finest ikill and talent that. we have at our command, and at the conrmand of all the other nations. it will take months to develop complete agreement upon all of ths aspects of the international organl-* zation,' 1 he said. The war pace is so swift, Dewey went on, that none can tell when it might end and the nearer we are to being in agreement on its form, the. nearer we will be to the point where it can begin effective work. Asks Fust Work "I feel very strongly that work , "All it requires is good intent, j on "• "''Kotiations on it, consulta- ; and competent administration and a li " ns ;iru! tlle brlnglns; in of the I confidence in the fnlted States." Kln "" nations should all proceed as Warren Francis, a reporter for the Los Angeles Times, said his newspaper was suggesting editorially that either Dewey or Dulles be invited to the Quebec conference. "I never invite myself to private discussions." the R?publican nominee said. . "We are doing the Inviting," Francis said. "You are doing the suggesting," Dewey pointed out. Dewey made it plain before he left Louisville, however, that he is ready to take issue with anyone whose views do not coincide with his. Calls Question Naive He called "a little naive" a written question submitted by AVarren Moscow, reporter for the Xew York Times, inquiring if the nominee agreed with Senator Arthur Vanden- bei'g (R-Mich.) that an international peace organization "should not he established until aflei' the peace settlement." "This world organization should develop effective cooperative means to prevent or repel military aggression and such means should include the use of force as well as the mobil- moral pressure and of economic ization of international opinion, of sanctiones." Full Partnership Speaking of Poland, France, the low countries and Norway, the candidate told his nationwide radio audience thai "they and all other peoples of good will are entitled to full partnership" in preventing an- rapidly as possible," he said. Dewey came out flatly last night before a cheering, stamping, whiR- 'tling crowd in Louisville Armory in support of the principle of using- force where necessary to prevent fu- • ture wars. In his second major campaign speech, delivered before the National Federation of Women's, Republican clubs at Louisville, the governor endorsed the American plan for a postwar security organization, as submitted to the Dumbarton Oaks conference in AVashington, and said: Dewey said Americans are completely agreed on, the proposition that they do not intend to have a third woi Id war and that "we can* not make good that resolve by anv effort (o withdraw or isolate ourselves from the rest of the world." Nonpartisati Effort •• Peace efforts must become nonpartisan, he declared, adding that he would insist that 'these matters shall never be subjects for partisan, political advantage by any Individual or by any party, either in or out of power." As a possible allusion to his earlier advocacy of a postwar military alliance with Great Britain, later expanded to include Russia and China, the Xew York governor said he repeatedly had Insisted that this country must "continue close cooperation" with other major Allied powers to supervise disarmament of Germany and Japan.

Nip Forts Below Philippines Lashed PimlinUf'ii From I'HKP One .Mitcholl.s ;md P-".8s unloaded on the K'ua Bay area nf Halmahora, island stepping-stone between Allied forces on Xew Guinea and the Philippines. Fit Pattern These raids, though unconfirmed, fitted the pattern of ceaseless, ever- growing aerial warfare which Oen- i eral MucArthUr, Admiral Ximitz and the Twentieth (B-29) Bomber Command have launched against .Tapa- holdings from Manchuria to the Indies. One Superfortress is missing and presumed lost as a result of yesterday's B-29 attack on Anshan. Manchuria, the Twentieth Air Force reported today. All oilier planes of the large task force which made the attack have now been accounted for, a commu- nique said. C'oininuni<|iip Text The text of communique Xo. 13: "Complete preliminary reports of yesterday's B-29 Superfortress attack upon Japanese-dominated Anthan, in Manchuria, reveal that one of our aircraft is missing and presumed to be lost. All other aircraft which participated in the mission have now been accounted for. "Revised reports also show that our gunners shot down 7 enemy fighter planes, probably destroyed 10 others, and damaged 11. "Karly appraisal of damage at the target indicates numerous hits within the target area, and the crews of the last planes to reach the target report their objectives obscured by clouds of smoke." Mindanao Hit The air war has won definite advantages. General MacArthur announced today that "our air force now dominates the southern Philippines." A 113-ton bombing attack on Mindanao, southermost Philippine island, met no aerial opposition, for the simple reason the Japanese hnrl pulled their hoarded alrforce out of harm's way farther north. To the north. Admiral Nimitx' carrier planes poured devastation into installations for three days on Yap rind t'uithi islands in the western Carolines. They knocked out a radio cable station, ack-ack positions, storage and buildings. Enemy reports said the action was large scale, with 300 planes thrown In against Yap. The action lasted through September 5-7. Axis broadcasters, who previously had forecast invasion of Mindanao, now spotlighted Halinahera as next on MacArthur's list. In any event. Tokyo let is people know that Japan's southern empire 1 —rich in war materials—was in a bad way. Only in China did the Japanese prosper. Lingling, site of an American afrbase, fell before strong forces flooding down from captured Heng- yanp. Kweilln, major city of Kwansl province, was under threat of the powerful forces driving south to cleave China in two. Colonel Convicted of Accepting Gifts LAS VKGAS, Nov.. Sept. 9. (JP)— A general courtmartial after deliberating seven and a half hours convicted Lieutenant-Colonel Harvey R.
