Previously a farmer who cut trees from his own land could take them to a sawmill, but could not receive lumber from them unless his county AAA committee had authorixod him to do so, or unless the sawmill was not subject to wartime lumber controls. The action will not affect the lumber supply for other purposes but should result In relieving the serious farm lumber shortage. How Your Dollars Guns... and Faster!

Canadian forces cleaning up the channel coast w«re reported in a front dispatch to have I'ought their way into the main part of Boulogne and the port area. Both infantry and armor were in the southwestern part of the town and also were established on Mont. Lambert, key to defenses of Boulogne. Other Canadian forces advanced closer to Cape Oris Ness, at the narrowest neck of the channel*, and only two German defense point*. Including the lighthouse, still held out in that area.

Powerful reinforcements were reported dropping into the flooded Dutch lowlands by parachute and glider to support the thousands of sky troopers of the Allied First airborne arrny who landed there at 1 p. in. yesterday. Invasion "(Joins Well" Headquarters blanketed the entire operation with strict censorship, but a communique said the invasion was "going well" in the critical first 24 hours. In a single Rlnnt stride the airborne army had crossed the flooded barrier the Nazis relied upon to protect Germany from invasion through The Netherlands, and threatened to drive countless thousands of Germans into the waiting arms of the British Second Army moving up from Belgium. "Radio Berlin suM the Second Army already had lashed out in a full-scale offensive to link up with the sky troops arid front reports said the two forces were within 5 miles or less of a juncture In the Eindhoven area of southern Holland. Try for Knockout Allied spokesmen, jubilant at the Initial success of the hazardous aerial invasion, made it clear that they were playing for the highest stakes— a quick knockout of the German Army. Lieutenant-General Lewis H. Brereton, commander of the First Airborne Army, declared flatly that upon the success of the landing "rests the difference between a quick decision in the west and a long, drawn-out battle." Berlin admitted the gravity of the Allied threat and warned the people of Holland that the Wehrmacht intended to turn their homeland into a battle ground and hold it at all costs. More Landings Due 1 The Nazis said the main Allied concentrations and landed around Eindhoven, Tilburg and Nijmegen. the latter m.rth of the Rhine and only 5 miles from the German frontier. At the same time, they hinted that further paratroop and glider landings are expected, as well as R possible sea-borne attack on the Dutch coast. One unconfirmed report broadcast by the Vichy radio said Allied sky troops made a new landing today on the sea coast 9 miles north of The Hague. Opposition Weak United Press war correspondents who flew over Holland with the invading army reported that Brereton's men, mostly American veteran^ of the Norman landing but including strong British, Dutch and Polish contingents, were meeting relatively weak opposition from the disorganized Nazis. Aided by a massive aerial bombardment that temporarily swept the Luftwaffe from the skies and knocked out virtually every German battery in the landing areas, the Allies liberated a number of Dutch villages within an hour and seized scores of vital bridges, canal crossings and rail and highway junctions.
