Last Day to Register Sept. 28 Vol. 57 TWO SECTIONS BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, MONDAY, SEPT. 25, 1944 14 PAGES No. 48 Philippine Raids Net 86 Ships U. S. Plane Attacks Rout Nipponese Navy, Break Air Force By VERN HU GLAND UNITED STATES PACIFIC FLEET HEADQUARTERS, PEARL HARBOR, Sept. 25. OP)—Raking United States carrier plane raids on the Philippines, which the Tokyo radio reported were continuing yesterday, have driven Nipponese naval forces to new bases and "broken" the island air force, Admiral Chester >V. Nimitz announced. He said last night American fliers smashed the Manila area for the second consecutive day, Thursday, September 21 (United States time), destroying or damaging '200 Japanese airplanes, sinking 29 more ships in Manila bay, damaging 20, sinking or damaging 16 small craft. In the two days the Japanese lost 86 ships put out of action, and 405 planes as well as 17 small craft and 2 drydocks, "The operations of the Third Fleet," said Nimitz in his commu- nique, "have forced the enemy to withdraw his naval forces from their former anchorages in the Philippines and to seek new refugees in the same general area, have disrupted inter-island communications, and have broken hi* airforce in the Philippines just a* operation* of the Fifth Fleet broke the enemy carrier- based airforce in the battle of the Philippine sea." Warships guarding the bitterly resisted Invasion of Peleliu island, in the Palau group, frustrated a Japanese attempt to reinforce their garrison Saturday, Nimitz also reported. A convoy of 13 barges and a motor sampan, filled with men and equipment, was destroyed. Only a few of the enemy are believed to have escaped. Two Ships Shelled At the same time an American cruiser stood off Malakal harbor, finest in the falaus, and shelled two previously bomb-damaged Japanese ehips. Malakal harbor lies southward of Koror island in the heart of Japan's "Singapore." The First Division United States Marines made small new gains on both flanks of bloody Peleliu. Soldiers of the Eighty-first Army Division continued mopping up on An- gaur island, 6 miles southward. Returning for their Thursday attack on Manila, the American raiders founded lessened Japanese aerial resistance and a harbor surprisingly full of ships. Box Score of Losses In aerial combat, they downed 69 planes against 110 the previous day. But their shipping bag was nearly double the 11 sunk and 26 damaged on September 20. Nimitz issued this box score of Japanese losses September 20-21: Ships sunk—40. Small craft sunk—6. Ships probably sunk—11. Ships damaged—35. Small craft damaged—11. Floating drydocks damaged—2. Aircraft destroyed in combat—169. Aircraft destroyed on the ground— 188. Planes damaged on the ground—45. Planes damaged by ships' gunfire—3. 11 United States Planes Lost Nimitz reported 11 American planes were lost in the two-day •trike. This was less than he had Continued on Pace Two -California!!

Halsey's Third Fleet, putting 8.6 ships out of commission and bagging 405 planes in a two-day assault on the Manila area, has knocked out Japan's air power in the Philippines and sent the enemy's navy scurrying for new base?. The fleet, in a series of attacks from the Bonins to Mindanao since August 30, has destroyed or damaged 429 ships and 1065 aircraft.

Nelson to Tell China's Contribution WPB CHIEF, BACK FROM ORIENT, PREPARES REPORT FOR PRESIDENT WASHINGTON, Sept. 25. (&>— Donald M. Nelson, chairman of the War Production Board, prepared today to report to President Roosevelt on a mission to China in which he surveyed the Chinese industrial contribution to the United Nations' war effort. Nelson returned from the Orient yesterday. He said he was enthusiastic about China's industrial progress, but declined to comment on his future in the* WPB. s When he left here a month ago, there were wldspread reports that Nelson would not return to the WPB. President Roosevelt said at the time that Nelson still was with WPB, but did not commit himself on the future of the agency leadership. 5000 Tons of Guns Flown to Tito's Men ROME, Sept. 25. C*)—The Allied air command, lifting the veil of secrecy from one of its most carefully hidden operations, disclosed today that more than 5000 tons of guns, ammunition and other "Supplies had been flown during the past two years to Marshal Tito's Yugoslav Partisans and to Patriots in other central and southern European countries. In addition to secret landing grounds in Yugoslavia, other fields have been laid out and used for quite some time in Greece, Albania and other countries, the command said, adding that the number of such airports "would astonish the Germans. 1 ' Harry Chandler Rites Scheduled Tuesday LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25.—Funeral services for Harry Chandler, 80, former publisher and chairman of the board of directors of the Los Angeles Times, who died Saturday, will be held Tuesday, with burial in Hollywood Cemetery. The services in the First Congregational Church will be conducted by Dr. James W. Fifield, Jr. Allied Steps to Invasion of Jan Homeland Listed By SANDOR S. KLEIN United Pre»» Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Sept. 25—Military observers today looked upon the forthcoming American drive into the Philippines as the first of a series of grand-scale flanking and diversionary operations designed to clear the way for invasion of the Japanese homeland itself. These operations, they believe, will take place during the next several months and require perhaps as much as a half year to complete. By then, it is hoped that the bulk of Anglo- American power can be shifted from Europe to the Pacific for the final blows against Japan, in accord with plant drawn at the recent Quebec conference. Much will depend, of course, on how soon'Germany col- „ lapses. s Expected to Be Costly The Invasion ..of Japan's home islands is expected to be costly. But military analysts are convinced that •it will be less costly if a large portion of Japan's huge army can be cut off from the homeland or diverted to defense of its stolen terrl- torries. This can be accomplished, the experts believe, by these moves: 1. Invasion of the* Philippines, an Operation which seems imminent. Douglas MacArtbur's forces Ctanecal are now within a few hundred miles of Mindanao, southernmost of the Islands, and our naval air power has struck devastating blows at enemy key points in the Philippines. 2. Invasion of Alalaya by forces under Lord Louis Mountbatten, supreme Allied commander in southeast Asia. If Malaya is invaded, it would tend to flank or contain hundreds of thousands of Japanese troops in the Singapore area and the Dutch East Indies. Seize China Points 3. Seizure of strong points along the China coast. This would make it possible. to control the waters between Japan and Formosa and China and prevent reinforcements and supplies from reaching the powerful Japanese army on the Asiatic mainland. Such a move would not necessarily require Unking of arms with the Chinese, as has been suggesed, 4. Invasion of some of the Kurile islands. This would be designed primarily to isolate Japanese air bases in the island chain and provide easier accessibility ot the northern enemy home islands for our fleet. It also could open a corridor through which American ships could reach Russian Siberian ports. REDS FREE ALL ESTONIA, JOIN FORCES FOR ASSAULT ON RIGA RUSSIAN TROOPS REPORTED DRIVING DEEP INTO HUNGARY, SLOVAKIA; BALKANS DEFENSE COLLAPSES FLASHES SAY WARSAW IX RUINS LONDON, Sept. 25. (UP.)—The Berlin radio said tonight that Warsaw has been "blotted from the face of the earth as never a town was before"—a propaganda line which often has been used to build up an explanation for the evacuation of a city. CHURCHILL IN LONDON LONDON, - Sept. 25. UP)— Prime Minister Churchill and Mrs. Churchill have arrived in England from the Quebec conference with President Roosevelt. , By ROBERT S. MUSEL United Press \Var Correspondent LOXDOX, Sept. 25.—The Red army has completed the liberation of Estonia, a Moscow dispatch said today, and fur to the south was reported driving deep into Hungary and Slovakia. United Press Correspondent Henry Shapiro reported from Moscow that Soviet forces wJuch yesterday seized the big Latvian transport center of Valmiera had smashed 40 miles westward to the Gulf of Riga, merging with Marshal Leonid A. Govo- rov's army which had swept through Estonia. Russian naval forces which cleared the whole Estonian coast sailed down into th" Gulf of Riga to join in a land-sea assault on the Latvian capital, the suburbs of which already were invested by Red army troops. Nazi Force Trapped The Moscow report of the end of the whirlwind campaign through Estonia indicated that sizable German forces might have been trapped in the western "hump' 1 of the Baltic state and by the spurt westward from Valmiera, and that whatever Nazi elements had failed to escape now had been destroyed. The entire German defense system in the Baltics appeared to have collapsed. Riga's fate evidently was sealed, with two Soviet columns converging on the city from the north and east, while the vanguard battered at the suburbs. Word of the invasion of Hungary came in a Rumanian high command announcement that a combined Russian-Rumanian army broke across the frontier 116 miles from Budapest after a 9-mile advance northwest from the captured Rumanian railway town of Arad. Battonya Captured Moscow's early morning war bulletin did not confirm the Bucharest announcement, but roundabout Turkish reports said the invaders captured Battonya, 12 miles northwest of Arad and 3 miles inside Hungary. A' Moscow broadcast tacitly confirmed the drive into Solvakia, reporting that General Ivan Y. Petrov's Fourth Ukranian Army reached the southern slopes of the Breskld mountains in a drive southwest of the Polish border town of Sanok. The Soviet spearheads apparently were aimed at Humenne, 25 miles Inside the border and the same distance from Hungary's northeastern frontier. Turkist reports relayed by BBC said the fast-rolling Red Army offensives touched off riotous peace demonstrations and strikes in Hungary, and the German Transocean News Agency said all 250,000 German nationals in the Transylvanian border regions had been evacuated in the path of the invaders. Seaport Captured On the. Baltic front. Soviet forces threw an armored wedge across the last escape corridor open to the Nazis in Estonia and captured one of the enemy's three remaining seaports on the Estonian coast. Russian fliers bombed and strafed the cornered Germans mercilessly and sank five troopladen transports off the Latvian coast, running to 16 the number of enemy evacuation ships destroyed In the Nazis' disastrous Dunkerque attempt.

BRIDE-TO-BE KILLED SACRAMENTO, Sept. 25. (UP.)— Investigation of a headon collision of Saturday near Elk Grove in which Grace G. Alvarz, 38, San Jose, was killed on the way to her wedding, today awaited recovery of Charles W. Taylor, Elk Grove. Ship Survives Sub Blast, Hurricane WASHINGTON, Sept. 23. <JP>— A medium-sized American merchant vessel survived first a torpedoing off the North Carolina coast and then the recent hurricane and reached Norfolk, Va., safely, the navy disclosed today. After the ship was hit by a tro- pedo from an enemy submarine, a tug and the coast guard cutters Jackson and Bedlook took the vessel under escort. When the hurricane struck, the tow line parted, the cutters capsized and the navy sent out additional tugs to resume the rescue. None of the crew of the merchant ship was injured. F. R. Raps Dewey's Charges Bitter Campaign Looms as Candidates Start Political Attacks OKLAHOMA C1TV, Sept. 23. <UR> Governor Thomas K. Dewey, aroused by President Roosevelt's use of "epithets and mudsllnging" in his opening campaign speech Saturday night, promised today to deal with the President's speech "point by point" In his own address from hero tonight. By LVLE C. WILSON WASHINGTON, Sept. 23. (U.E)—President Roosevelt and Governor Thomas E. Dewey are about to jolt the electorate wide awake in the next six weeks with a campaign of extraordinary bitterness likely to be marked by ejaculations of "who's a liar?" and "you're another." Mr. Roosevelt's political advisers were enthusiastic over the sound and reception of his Saturday speech here to the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (A. F. of L.) in which he charged Dewey with lying in the Xnz.i pnttern in his attacks on administration policy. In that speech, the President accused, the Republicans of belatedly TONIGHT'S POLITICAL SPEECHES "} p. m. (P. W. T.) Governor Thomas E. Dewey, NBC, Blue Networks. espousing New Deal reforms and charged them in so doing with "the most obvious common or garden variety of fraud." He accused Dewey of uttering a "callous and brazen falsehood about demobilization" — a reference to Dewey's charge on September 7 that the administration planned to Keep men in the armed forces until they found Jobs—and called G. O. P. leaders "labor baiters." Blast* Isolationists Snapping back at Republican charges that he had failed to prepare for this war, the President said many Republicans had been isolationists and would be In control if the G. O. P. wins in November. Mr. Roosevelt declared that his administration would lead the nation to victory in the war and to "the greatest epoch of free achievement" afterward. He said the government already is making reconversion plans, the keynote of which may be found "in the one word—'jobs'." Dewev. who arrived in Oklahoma City at 9:32 a. m. (C. AV. T.) today, came back in a statement from Belen. N. M., in which he said: "Since the man who wants to be president for 18 years has now dropped the mask of a non-political campaign ... I shall feel free to examine his record with unvarnished candor In the future, beginning with a national broadcast from Oklahoma City tonight at 10 p. m. (E. W. T.)," 7 p. m. (P. W. T.) Ill Feeling Anticipated Unless the President abruptly changes the tenor of his campaign and Dewey backs away from the implications of his own statement, the 1944 presidential campaign will be one to be remembered for ill-feeling. It is logical to expect, also, that within another fortnight the actions of both candidates will be affected noticeably by the gnawing doubts which afflict statesmen as polling day approaches. It is a matter for laughing recollection among persons closely associated with Mr. Roosevelt's 1936 and 1940 campaigns that Democratic headquarters began to get littery in early October of those years. It was about then 4 years ago that the President abandoned his no-campaign program to embark on the Inspection tours of national defense plants which Republicans so bitterly assailed as campaigns in disguise. Continued on Page Two Plans for Germany's Control Still Incomplete, Says Hull WASHINGTON, Sept. 25. (UR>— Secretary of State Cordell Hull indicated today that the United States, Great Britain, and Russia have not yet reached "mutual understanding" on plans to control postwar Germany but he expressed hope that such agreement would be reached "at an early stage." Hull asserted that "the whole question of dealing with the postwar G*rman situation has been receiving attention by each of the governments most interested and that includes this government and the state department." Disagreement Reported His statement skirted a discussion of a reported disagreement among high American officials on plans for shackling Germany after her defeat. "It woud serve no purpose," Hull said, "to say more at this time except that the higher officials of the governments concerned will reach mutual understandings, I hope, at an early stage." Must Know Decisions Hull cautioned that "it is very necessary that we wait until we know the true conclusions" reached by the Russian and British govern ments. His statement was prompted by inquiries about a reported split in President Roosevelt's special cabinet committee on German control plan nlng. Along the same line, Hull reiterated his view that Adolf Hitler and his top Nazi henchmen would be high on the docket of war criminals. He scoffed again at persistent London reports that Hitler's name still was absent from the list. Arnhem Sky Troops Rank With Great REPORTER TELLS STORY OF SHELLING ENDURED BY LITTLE STRONGHOLD By ALAN WOOD n-|iri-»fiii!iiB llio (Vmhmod Allied Trpss WITH nr.msn AiriBoi:xi-J FORCES IX TIIH ARNHKM AREA, Sopt. -4. tUfi> —If in years In I'oint' any mini says to you, "I fought with the Anthem airborne forces," take off your hat to him. For tiife is the stuff of which England's greatness is made. 1 cannot write'the full story of all this airborne force has done and endured, but the few of Arn- thnn will rank in glory with the few of the Battle of Britain. The German shelling of our little stronghold today is more vicious and more continuous. The firing started t.Hs morning from one old gun, whose shells spluttered oddly through the trees. " 'Ark at that bird," said the sergeant. Now It seems that they are bringing up batteries of 88s, and confused firing 100 yards away mean that German infantry is attacking. We can hear a spandau, but as our men are using captured weapons we can't judge by the sound and we can't see for the thick trees. Typhoons were rocketing: the enemy guns earlier, but now it is raining again. A day's clear sky would make all th- difference. Jleanwhile, rain or shine, mortared or shelled, our men go o* fighting, beating off attacks and attacking themselves until the Second Army arrives. STATE BEGINS ANDREEXASE 40 WITNESSES TO TESTIFY ON SLAYING SALINAS, Sept. 25. UP)— There were no powder marks around the head wound that killed Jay Lovett, 19-year-old farm boy, last July, Dr. A. A. Arehart, autopsy surgeon, testified here today at the trial of Mrs. Frances Andrews, accused of murdering the boy. Under questioning by District Attorney Brazil, Doctor Arehart testified that he personally had known the Lovett boy, who had been a patient of his about 2 years ago when he visited the doctor's office once. Doctor Arehart described young Lovett as a husky young man, well developed, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing about 163 pounds. He identified a picture of young Lovett taken while his body was propped up on a mortuary table before embalming. Deputy Sheriff Testifies Gene Trenner, Monterey county deputy sheriff, following Doctor Arehart to the witness stand, testified that he and Charles Brown, another deputy sheriff, were the first peace officers to reach the scene after Lovett's body had been discovered opposite the entrance to the Andrews ranch. Trenner said he found a ."a caliber automatic near Lovett's feet and that he picked it up by using a pencil and handkerchief. He asserted lie found two discharged .-a caliber shells about 15 feet from the body. The deputy told the court tluit Mrs. Andrews was not at the scene at any time while he and Brown were there. Trenner asserted he and Brown went to the Andrews home and found Mrs. Andrews calm and composed. The jury was picked Friday and the first prosecution witness. County Surveyor Leo Boling, identified large scale maps of the death scene —a section of the exclusive Carmel valley on the Monterey peninsula. Yanks, British Rip Into Reich, Drive for Kleve Americans Break Across German Frontier at . Point Near Beek; Hodges' First Army Rips Attack East of Aachen; Supplies Ferried By JAMES M. LONG LONDON, Sept. 25. UPl— Two New British and American wedges have thrust across the German border in a direct drive on the Siegfried anchor of Kleve, it was disclosed today.' The threatened sweep into the Ruhr, Germany's northern industrial area, was gathering breadth and force. At the same time the British Second Army thrust more troops across the upper ' " STRIKE THREAT IN STEEL PUNT across tlie upper branch of the Rhine near Arnhem where British airborne "Red Devils" had written a new epic in a heroic eight-day stand, and began building up the hard-won foothold on the north bitnk ou the left of the two uew Wedges. On the right of the Kleve-pointed wedges the British, with uirborne reinforcements, were fighting iu a 33-mile front from Deurne east of Eindhoven to near Volkel, to the north, in an area only about IB miles from the German frontier. As confidence bounded that the British parachutists at Arnhem would hold until even more substantial links were forced to exploit their bridgehead for a sweep into the northern Reich, General Dwight D. Eisenhower's headquarters broadcast to 12.000,000 foreign workers in Germany that "the hour for action has come." Arms for such action have now been provided inside Germany, it was announced, and those workers without arms were advised to seek safe, places of hiding until the means of resistance are provided. Fight in Reichwald Supreme headquarters announced that troops were engaging the Germans in the Reichwald, huge forested area whose edge at the Dutch border is only 6 miles from the Kleve anchor. B'ront line reports said these troops were British tank forces. Front line reports said American parachutists attached to the British Second Army had taken Beek, Dutch border village 3 miles southeast of Bljmegen and only about 6 miles northwest of Kleve, and these troops, too. were fighting in Germany. Beek is 5 or 6 miles north of where the entry into the Reichswald apparently was made. To the west of the British corridor driven to Arnhem. Canadians and British advanced 10 miles on a 30- mile front to the Antwerp-Turnhout canal, seized a bridgehead across the canal about 8 miles northeast of Antwerp, and entered Turnhout, about 25 miles northeast of Antwerp. Airborne Reinforcements The Germans said new airborne forces had been dropped ahead of this drive threatening to cut off Germans retreating in western Holland by a squeeze to the Ijssel Meer (Zulder Zee). At the same time, General Dwight D. Eisenhower's communique announced that Polish reinforcements from the British Second Army had slipped across the upper branch of the Rhine at Arnhem by night and, bolstered the hard-pressed but stouthearted British airborne division which had fought alone for a week In the middle of counterattacking Germans. On down the line, Lieutenant-General Courtney H. Hodges' United States First Army ripped a German counterattack to pieces in the area east of Aachen and turned huge 240 mm. (nearly 10 inch) guns on targets only 18 miles from the Rhine. Lieutenant-General George S. Pat- Continued on Page Two ^^l^S^^SS^ lJ£'^iR&l$$& MILES 0 25 - -Cnlirornion NEA Telepboto. TO THE HESCt'E—Allied forces today were struggling to build up their supply link with a dwindling band of British paratroopers clinging to the Rhine gate at Arnhem, an supplies and reinforcements t rink led across the Rhino to the sky force. Other Allied forces crossed the frontier due east of >*ijmegen and captured the German border town of Beek, 9 miles noMiwest of Kleve. FOUR DISPUTES SETTLED; 9600 STILL ABSENT By United Pren Settlement of four of the nation's major strikes today reduced to 9(00; the number of workers Idle because of strikes, but at Gadsden, Ala., a, walkout of 30 bricklayers at the Republic Steel Corporation plant threat* ened to force an additional 350* workers into idleness. At the Clairton, Pa., works ,of Carnegie-Illinois Steel Company,; 75 chippers who have been on strike a week returned to • work, today and operations were back to normal-»i the 1400 other worjurs w-ho wert forced into idleneslsrfJecause of tin strike were able to work again. ITb* strike caused a loss of production' DC 14,000 tons of steel, officials said; 8000 Walk Out The biggest walkout, a three-day strike of 8000 workers at the American Car & Foundry Company, Berwick, Pa., was ended when the United Steel 'Workers (C. I. OJ reached agreement with officials on seniority regulations on a vacation- with-pay plan. At Detroit, 3000 workers on the day shift at the Briggs Manufacturing Company plant returned to work, ending a walkout In protest against the dismissal of 10 die setters. A. total of 7250 workers had been on strike at the Briggs plant. However, 1168 workers at that factory were to be laid off today due to cutback* in the production of B-17 Flying Fortresses. Cost 4500 Tons of Steel At Cleveland, where a strike of 400 trainmen has tied up 4600 other workers, officials of the Republic Steel Company's Corrigan-McKinley plant estimated that the walkout has cost the production of another 4500 tons of steel. At Gadsden, a strike of 30 bricklayers continued into its sixth day and threatened to close eight open hearth furnaces employing 3500 workers at the Republic plant. President Roosevelt today ordered the army to take over the Farrell Check Steel Company, of Sandusky, Ohio, where the production of war materials has been halted since September 11 by a strike of 600 em- ployes.
