British, Yank Guns Shell Arnhem Continued From Page One Allied push from Nijmegen had been halted, and that an all-out attack had been launched with the aim of annihilating the isolated remnants at Arnhem, identified by Berlin as the BrHish First Airborne Division. The Germans said yesterday the division had largely been wiped out. Meanwhile, the British shoved out on both sides of Eindhoven, to their rear, and broadened to 25 miles the base on their 45-mile-deep corridor across Holland through which a one- j way flow of men and armor was streaming toward the river crossing nearest Berlin. Waal Crossing Secure Someren, 30 miles east of Eindhoven, and Wintelre, 6 miles westward, were reached, and the Waal crossing was made secure by wiping out in Nijmegen itself a pocket of Germans which advance elements had not bothered with. Lieutenant-General Herman B. Ramcke, who commanded the Brest garrison, was flown to England as a prisoner of war. The Germans announced the beginning of attacks on St. Nazalre, another U-boat nest in Brittany. The battle at the southern end of the front was a crescendo of destruction for German armored forces. The Germans, throwing in tanks with paint hardly dry, hud lost at least 105 in the woods, plains and hills east of Nancy alone—approximately half their available force in that area—and 196 In three days along the whole Rhine front. Lieutenant-General George S. Patton's troops had battled their way to within six miles of Metz, perhaps the greatest inland fortress city in western Europe, had cleared the Nazis from Luneville, 25 miles southeast of Nancy, and won high ground along the Meurthe 10 miles farther southeast near Flln in a closing ac tlon on Baccarat, 40 miles from the Strasbourg crossing of the Rhine. The Third Army battled across the Sellle river somewhere in the Chn- teau-Sallne-Moyenvlc-Dleuze area, 18 to 28 miles northeast of Nancy, but was thrown back. Other forces of the Seventh Army pounded forward into stiff artillery fire east of Eplnal, on the Moselle 35 miles south of Nancy, and reached Mabouhans and Palante, two villages three miles apart 13 miles ea»t of Lure and the same distance west of Belfort. "Check House'' "Check the house from cellar to attic, insido and outside buildings for rubbish and remove it promptly Rubbish is a double fire hazard; it may Ignite spontaneously, or It may serve as quick fuel for a stray spark. "Oily rags, like rubbish, may ignite spontaneously. Burn them it practical; otherwise store them in metal containers. Paints, too, should be kept tightly covered. "Heating systems should be examined for cracks or other defects, soot, or clogging in chimneys and flues. Repairs should be made promptly. Make sure that no combustible material, including wood work, is exposed to heat. "Keep ashes in covered metal containers; shield fireplaces with screens. 'Replace weather-worm flammable wood shingle roofs with fire-resisting roofing. Ample Ash Trays "See that ample ash trays are available wherever smoking is permitted, and thnt careful smoking habits are cultivated by all members ot the family. "Put matches in metal containers, out of reacli of small children. "Use a flashlight for temporary Illumination. "Use great care with flammable cleaning liquids. "Replace frayed electric cords, have defective electrical equipment replaced or repaired by a competent electrician, check the fuse box to see that proper fuses are installed and see that lamp shades are a safe distance from electric light bulbs. "Recharge fire extinguishers and put them where they will be readily accessible if a fire should break out." myth thru should women vote thei would Immediately lose thnt not too-rlcarly defined quality of femininity. It is trtie thnt the feminists who pioneered for the women's vote in this country used a little morn than feminine wiles to obtain franchise, hut the women who have benefited and used the votes seemed to lie not at all affected by the rifilit of ballot. American women have not fully exercised their right of franchise nor have they always Informed themselves on Issues of the day to vote Intelligently. Organizations, such as the T,engue of Women Voters, are doinp: an excellent educational work in Retting women not only to vote, but to study facts, in order to vote wisely. Political action of women is becoming more clearly defined and more and mote effective. University women, nt a conference in Washington. D. C., were, specific In their action In asking for representation in the shaping of the postwar world. Those women asked thnt a woman be appointed vice-chairman of the advisory council on the postwar foreign policy, a post vacated by the death of Xorman Davis. The women also asked that a woman ho named as a special assistant to the secretary of state to take part in the further development of a plan for the general International organization to serve in the postwar period, particularly following the Dumbarton Oaks conference and until the establishment of the permanent International organization. This group also requested that a woman be named as an official delegate of the United States to a United Nations conference yet to he arranged for the establishment of international organization . There are women who are highly qualified hy education, training, background and experience for any or all of these posts. Nor need women he timid or fear to fail simply because of being a woman, for many men certainly have failed in the establishment of. world peace and international organization. Maybe women can make a real contribution to an ancient problem. French women will undoubtedly play a part in the, international or- ganfzatlon as Russian and Chinese women will. There is no reason for American women to bo excluded from a part in the shaping of the international organization. French women, newly franchlsed, will be appreciative of their new political power. Following the scourpe this nation has undergone because of false politics, French women will have a real responsibility and will no doubt be •willing to accept it. It Is up to American women to realize more fully their real advantages in the world of today and nccept their responsibilities as citizens and voters, too. in order to keep not only on a par with the women elsewhere In the world, but to offer them leadership.

(UP)—A movement of tremendous peace-time significance to break down international news monopolies by agreement among all nations is under way today by unanimous vote of the United States Congress. Congress has committed the United States formally to a news philosophy calculated to support everywhere the men and women of the world who seek to obtain and preserve world peace nnd prosperity. It is hoped that other governments will commit themselves similarly. Resolution Adopted The commitment is In the form of a concurrent resolution adopted unanimously yesterday by both houses proposing that this government seek an International compact which would guarantee nondlscrim- inatory access to news sources everywhere for all news-gathering and distributing agencies and individuals. It also calls for nondiscriminatory rates and charges for dissemination of news and for equality in distribution. Unanimous congressional action reflected the unanimity of the American press for free and open news channels. The resolution said: "Resolved, that the Congress of the United Sates express its belief in the world-wide right of the exchange of news by news-gathering and news distributing agencies, whether individual or associated, by any means, without discrimination to sources, distribution, rates or charges; and that this right should be protected by international compact." News Agencies Participate The American Newspaper Publishers Association, the American Society of Newspaper Editors, the U. P.. A. P., and I. N. S. and others directly concerned in journalism participated in the recommendation* and discussions which led, ultfc niately, to congressional action. Hugh Balllie. president of th« United Press, is now in Europe discussing agreements for free access to news with representatives of various United Nations government*. As Congress was acting yesterday a dispatch from Paris reported that Henri Tletgen, French minister of information, had assured Balllie that his country would welcome American, British and other news agencies which may desire to distribute news to the French press and to gather news within France on an equal basis with Agence Francaise, the newly organized French news agency. Baillie already had obtained specific assurances from the representatives of Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway and Czechoslovakia. Editor and Publisher last week reported that "the French reacted to representations from Bailie, and other sources by lifting in liberated France the Algiers 'ordinance and decree 1 which set up a monopoly for the new French national news agency, Agence Francaise."

The planes came from Vice-Admiral Marc A. Mltscher's powerful carrier force attached to Admiral William Halsey'f third fleet. Since the Halsey-Mltscher combination went into action three weeks ago they have destroyed or damaged 908 Japanese planes, 181 ships and 77 small craft. They paid a price of 20 American planes shot down. In not a single carrier strike, including five raids on the Philippines, has an American ship been hit or even vigorously attacked, Nlmltz said. The attack yesterday (Manila time! was the first on Manila bay since Corregldor fell in May, 1042. Simultaneously other planes and warships ot Halsey's force were supporting 1 First Division marines on Peleliu Island in the Palau group, 600 miles east of the Philipines. Some 3000 surviving Japanese, strongly entrenched in the cave- riddled ridges, have fought the marines to a virtual standstill on the west coast. Off the conquered east coast marines occupied Ngabad Islet. Carrier and land-based aircraft poured 215 tons of explosives on the southern approaches to the Philippines and sank four ships. PT boats destroyed a small troop-laden Japanese transport, possibly trying to aid the Morotai garison. OBITUARIES MoDOlOLK. OK FORREST—Funeral ««rv. n CM for Da Forrea-.
