O. P. national committeeman, asserted today a New Deal victory in November is "Impossible" and predicted the Republicans may win the presidency by a landslide if they varvy Pennsylvania. Rising his confidence of a Republican sweep on a study of pivotal states, Kelland said: "The extent of the November victory depends upon our success in the state of Pennsylvania with its 3T» electoral votes. Should we carry this stale, which seems probable, the victory may assume landslide, proportions." Ki'lluml SHU! "There is little doubt now" that (Jovcrnor Thomas K. Ucwcy will c.nrry his home state of New York into the Republican column and added that "political observers in almost every stale report a minimum swing of 7 per cent of the voters away from the New Deal, and Mr. Dewey is gaining strength lifter every speech he makes."

Allies in Grim Fight to Hold Crossing of Rhine Continued From Pace One has man casualties, supreme headquarters said the equivalent of about 20 to :to full (ff»rmu.n divisions— 300,000 to 450,000 men—were facing the .Allies in France and the low countries. Simultaneously, General Dwight D. Risenhower ordered a complete we- curlty blncknut on all operations In Holland and forbade nil news and speculation on the battle. Headquarters said secrecy had been Imposed because the situation hud become "extremely fluid." making it imperative to screen Allied moves from the enemy. Below the disputed crossing, Allied troopH shoved out Die oast wall of their corridor with the capture of Heltrmml, Deurne anrt Mook and opened a secondary supply road to Nijinegen. apparently along the eastern flunk. No major changes were reported on the American First and Third Army fronts from north of Aachen down to the Meurthe river valley, but Third Army units made some progress northeast and southeast of Nancy against stiff opposition, while the United States Seventh Army drove closer to the Belfort Oap. Radio Berlin boasted that the Allied drive into Germany would be "measured In inches and will cost .streams of blood," ant] that "war of destruction will be opposed by defense of destruction," * Official spokesmen said supply columns still were running the gauntlet of Nazi shellfire northward from Nijmegen to the south bank of the Rhine, where the British Second Army was building up a powerful relief column within full view of the trapped paratroopers on the far side of the river. It was admitted, however, that the rouvuys were forced to tuivel nn secondary roads above Nijmegen, since Klst, almost midway between that town and Aruhem, was still in German hands. Allied patrols fannvd out through the 5-mile-wide vuiTklor between the two Uhine channels 15 miles northwest of Nijmegen and about the same distance west of Arnhem, and found strong Nazi forces dug in on the north bank of the lower Rhine to prevent a flanking attack on Am- hem from that direction. German troops and guns lined the north bunk of the Rhine in considerable strength, presumably barring the railway bridge, too, and a 1000- yard no-man's-land lay between the airborne forces and the river.

Among this army of owners is a remarkably large number of women shareholders, 97,106 of them. A good many shares are held by 1,246 charitable and educational institutions, and other large amounts of stock are owned by insurance companies for the benefit of policyholders. You'll find owners of U. S. Steel stock at work in stores, in factories and on farms, in every, one of the forty-eight states. They're the typical Americans you rub elbows with on a bus or at the movies. Their stake in U. S.

Headquarters said a limited amount of supplies was dropped to the advanced battle forces by air Monday, but it was not disclosed whether they were parachuted to the sky soldiers at Osterbeek or to forward elements of the relief column. Behind the Allied spearhead at Arnhem. British end American forces made further progress in widening the supply corridor extending iip from the Belgian border. British Second Army troops drove into the Reuse! area, K> miles southwest of Eindhoven, coming within I) miles of a junction with a Canadian First Army, unit that entered Turnhout and crossed Mie Antwerp-Turn- iiout canal west of that town. Other Brit ish forces pushed t he wall of their corridor out 7 to 8 :nlles northeast and cast of Kind- ho vcn, capturing Helmond and Deurne and swinging 7 to 8 miles north of the latter town. Simultaneously another column knifed 8 miles south of Nijmegen to capture Mook, about 11 miles from a Junction with the Deurne force. American airborne units operating with British tanks broke up a strong German road block that halted all traffic on the Eintfhoven-Xijmegen highway for several hours yesterday. The Hermans threw about 3000 infantrymen, 10 to 15 tanks and self- propelled guns across the road between Veghel and St. Oerlenrode and ranged up and down the highway shooting up British trucks, but finally were driven nff. There wa.s no official word on the progress of the Allied columns stab- hinp into nerman suil southeast of Nijmegcn, although a dubious report broadcast by the French radio Montpellier said the Allies had captured Kicvc. ll! miles southeast of Nljme- pen and the northern anchor of the Siegfried bine. Heavy rains slowed operation on the United States First Army front cast of Aachen, where American guns yesterday poured one of the heaviest barrages of the war Into the Rhinelancl. Scattered patrol operations were reported, and headquarters said at one point the German forced several thousand refugees of undisclosed nationality back through the American lines to place the bur- the Americans. Farther south, American Third Army forces beat off a half-dozen German counterattacks in the Dei- uxe sector northeast of Nancy, knocking out another eight enemy tanks. The Germans were reported digging in feverishly in that area in expectation of heavy American aerial attacks as soon as the weather lifts. Southeast of Nancy, the Seventh Army cleared the last German resistance from Upinal and captured .Teuxey, 2 miles to the east. The Seventh also scored general advances around the shoulder of the Vosges mountains between Epinal and Belfort, capturing a, numbr of strong- points on the Lure-Belfort highway. One American spearhead by-passed Ronchamp and pushed on to less than 8 miles northwest of Belfort. DENTURE BREATH STOPPED IN A Jf Why waste 15 minutes or more soaking false teeth?

It was Mrs. An- ' drew'B herself who called the In- . vestigators' attention to the condition of her clothing, Brown acknowledged. Friedman asked Brown whether Mrs. Andrews had told him "whore she got the blood on her clothes." "She said she tried to pick up the boy and help him," Brown replied. "She said the blood was coming from his month." District Attorney, Anthony Brazil v brought from Trenner a statement that the wealthy matron had ac- UYinwledtfoil shfc J| Jl 'l scolded young Lovett for "lying" when he came, to hor home the evening of his * death. Brazil contends Mrs. Andrews shot the boy in a moment of jealousy, is expected to attempt to show that the two quarreled over Lovott's friendship with red-haired Mrs. Xancy Unde, with whom he dined on a neighboring ranch before going to the Andrews home. Trenner said on the stand that "signs of commotion" were apparent on the soft ground beside the youth's body and that tire tracks of Mrs. Andrews' automobile were "real dost" to the death scene. \: You may have experienced more frequent fuse "blow-outs" in your home these days.
