Last Chance to Register Tonight Vol. 57 TWO SECTIONS BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1944 18 PAGES No. 51 Burma Raids Net 32 Jap Vessels MacArthur's Planes Strafe Batavia; Pacific Bombers Sink Three Nip Freighters; Air Blows Delivered From Palau to Paramushiro By LEONARD MILL1MAN Associated Press War Editor British submarines have sunk a record ba^ of 32 Japanese vessels in forays probing far eastern waters in advance of the British fleet now gathering in the Indian ocean, oilicial London announcements disclosed today. Prime Minister Churchill told the House of Commons much of the British fleet is already in waters off southeast Asia. The rest will follow, he indicated, when it is no longer needed in Europe. Japan, preparing for the day the British fleet will strike at Singapore and the American fleet at the China coast, speeded up its offensive in southeast China. A new column drove northwestward from Kwangtung province to trap Chinese troops below captured Wn- chow. Other forces virtually completed encirclement of ^aoching. Nipponese' divisions between these two points were reinforcd for a drive on strategic Kweilin. The British admiralty announced that submarines, making the most extensive and daring raids they have yet reported against the Japanese, torpedoed and shelled craft ranging from medium-sized freighters to coastal vessels. They slipped into Japanese-controlled Port Owen in southern Burma and sank two gunboats lying at anchor, shelled oil tanks on Christmas island off Java and ranged as far as Sundra strait between Java and Sumatra. Java thus became the first meet- Ing place of the striking arms of Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten's southeast Asia forces and General Douglas MacArthur's southwest Pacific command. Batavia, capital of Java, lying 60 miles from Sunda strait, was strafed for the first time Sunday when MacArthur's reconnaissance planes made a 3200-mile round-trip flight from Australia. They caught the Japanese •completely by surprise in a low level attack. Other southwest Pacific bombers sank three freighters in sweeps reaching up to the southern Philippines, 1500 miles northeast of Batavia. ' SHAKEUPS LOOM IN CHINA_POSTS COMMUNISTS MAY GET JOBS IN GOVERNMENT CHUNGKING, Sept. 28. (UP)—Reports of an impending shakeup in the national government of General- lissimo Chiang Kai-shek, with the possibility that Communists may be given one and possibly two ministerial posts, were current in Chung- king today. One report said Foreign Minister T. V, Soong, brother of Madame Chiang, may play a prominent part in the shakeup, assuming the role of a new liberal leader in the government. Under Criticism Other reports said General Ho Ting Chin, war minister and chief of staff, and H. H. Kung, finance minister. -and. .brother-in-law of Madame Chiang, were under "sharply, outspoken criticism." Talk of a government shakeup followed closely upon the peoples political council meeting, in which various government leaders and policies were criticized profusely. Well-informed sources said it was probable Communists will emerge from the reorganization in possession of at least one and possibly two ministerial posts in a move by the government to placate Chinese Communists. Resolution Passed Kung was criticized for holding a government post while at the same time he headed four of the largest banking institutions in China. The People's Political Council passed a resolution requesting that the finance minister be prohibited from holding his government bank jobs. • General Ho has for several months been subject to public criticism for the failure of China's armies in operation against Japanese summer campaigns in Honan, Hupeh and Hunan provinces, and for existence within the army of corruption decried by the PPC. Neutrals Warned on Aiding War Criminals WASHINGTON, Sept. 28. Secretary of State Hull disclosed today that neutral nations had been warned they would lose American friendship "for years to come" should they give sanctuary to Hitler or other Axis leaders after the war. Several governments of neutral or former neutral status, notably Sweden, Turkey, Switzerland and Spain, either have given assurances that they will not permit Axis nationals to flee into their borders or that they are fully aware of the problems such action might provoke. "No indication has yet been received of the views of certain other governments," Hull said in a statement released at his news conference. Index to Advertisers Page Abrams. Dr. R.

Nimitz' Pacific forces carried the air war north and east from there. They struck a dozen Japanese islands in a. triangle reach from Palau 3100 miles north to Paramushiro and 2400 miles east to the Marshall^, including Truk, Marcus, Wake and Iwo. Nimitz reported 8537 Japanese have been killed in the Palau islands. He said only two pockets of the enemy remained on Peleliu, largest island of the Palau group invaded so far. For the first time he reported "rapid progress" on Peleliu. Tokyo broadcast claimed 35 United States planes were destroyed or damaged by the Japanese air force intercepting Tuesday's Superfortress raid on Manchuria and in a counterattack as the B-29s returned to their base at Chenotu in northwest China. Tokyo claimed only four definitely shot down. American announcements said the Japanese retaliatory attack on the B-29 base was "virtually harmless" Continued on Page Six Allies to Pool Shipping United Maritime Council to Synchronize Merchant Vessels' Use WASHINGTON, Sept. 28. (UJR)—The principal maritime countries of the United Nations have agreed to pool their shipping fleets under a "united maritime council" after Germany falls until six months after Japan is defeated, the state department disclosed today. The United States government made public a formal agreement under which United Nations shipping "under all flags" has accepted as "a common responsibility" the job of providing shipping for all military and other tasks necessary for completing the war in the Far East and supplying all areas liberated by Allied forces. The agreement provides for a united maritime council to synchronize the use of United Nations merchant fleets and a united maritime executive board—a smaller working group. Members of the executive board are Britain, the United States, The Netherlands and Norway. Both groups will begin operation with the end of the war in Europe, when present arrangements for the co-ordinated employment of Allied shipping facilities expire, American officials said. These arrangements, for the most part, co-ordinate the operations of United Nations shipping through the British ministry of war transport and the United States War Shipping Administration. The agreement will remain in effect "till six months after the suspension of hostilities in Europe or the Far East—whichever is later—unless terminated or modified earlier by unanimous agreement," the announcement said. The document was signed by the United Kingdom, the United States, Belgium, Canada, Greece, The Netherlands, Norway and Poland. The French Committee of National Liberation has made clear that all French shipping "is and remains at the disposal of the United Nations," it said. Soviet Russia, although not a signatory, has been kept informed, the state department said. One official explained that Russitt "will be welcomed if she wants to join."

Warren to Make Three Talks Next Week for Dewey Ticket By Associated Preai Governor Earl Warren of California will speak from Minneapolis on behalf of the Dewey-Brlcker ticket October 2, the Republican national committee announced today. The address 'will be broadcast over the Mutual network from 1.0:15 p. m. to 10:30 p. m., eastern war time. The California governor also has accepted an invitation to speak in Rockford, 111., October 3, and in Columbus, Ohio, on October 4. Warren said in Sacramento that the speaking tour would take him out of California for less than a week. He said he would take such active part in the Dewey-Brlcker campaign in California as requested by the national committee. The Minneapolis address Monday will be delivered from 7:15 to 7:30 p. m., Pacific war time. Contrary estimates by Governor Dewey and Vice-President Wallace on the effect that a change of administrations would have on jobs after the war pointed up this issue today as one due to get renewed emphasis in the next big surge of political oratory—on October 4, 6 and 6. Governor John W. Bricker, Dewey's running mate on the Republican presidential ticket, is to make a nationwide broadcast from St. Louis on .the fourth. President Roosevelt Will be on the air from Washington the following night and Dewey will broadcast from Charleston, W. Va., October 6. Jobs Emphasized The question of whether a Democratic or Republican administration could provide more jobs comes -up in every campaign and has been treated at length in this one. But signs are that politicians on both sides believe there is growing concern along this line among the electorate as the European war progresses toward its end.- Wallace, busily working for the Roosevelt-Truman ticket, twice. hit on the theme yesterday at Philadelphia. He told shipyard workers their chances are better under the Democrats. Then he followed up with a radio speech saying that a public works program may be needed and that we must never allow the days of Hoover to return." Dewey came back to Albany today from a cross-country tour during which he pictured the New Deal as afraid of the unemployment problems of peace—a picture Mr. Roosevelt has called totally wrong. Promises Success On bis way back, Dewey told a crowd at Muncie, Ind., that he is "not afraid that we won't have jobs for all after the war if we get a government in which the people will have confidence." The candidate apparently found responses satisfactory as he named Secretary of Interior Ickea, Secretary of Labor Perkins and others among those he would remove from Influence in national affairs. In more than half-a-dozen train platform talks, such references have been greeted by yells from the crowds. Dewey has warmed up to these responses, evidently convinced that people who climb box cars and trucks, perch atop automobiles and mass In streets at his appearances, like him to assail what he calls "bureaucratic regulations."

REDS INVADE CZECHOSLOVAKIA, NAB TOWN 4 MILES INSIDE BORDER GERMAN RESERVES ROUTED AS RUSSIANS DRIVE THROUGH WATER BARRIERS TO RIGA LONDON'. Sept. 28. (UP)—Russian forces have invaded Czechoslovakia, the Soviet midnight communique revealed tonight, with the capture of Yydran, 4 miles inside the border. vdtt Mother Called to Testify STORY OF DEATH NIGHT UNFOLDS IN CASE CHARGING SOCIALITE By ROBERT S. ML'SEL United Preu War Correspondent LONDON, Sept. 28.—Russian tanks and riflemen drove full-tilt through the chain of lake and river barriers covering the northern uud eastern approaches to Riga today, routing a rag-tag army of German reserves thrown into the battle in a desperate attempt to win time for the evacuation of' the Latvian seaport capital. * Axis sources hinted simultaneously at the start of a great new Soviet offensive against East Prussia and reported that Russian columns were across the Hungarian border in force less than 100 miles southeast of Budapest, menacing Szeged, the second city of that Nazi satellite. Evacuation Ordered The German DNB news agency said Hungarian authorities had ordered a general evacuation of the threatened border areas, and reports from Turkey said Budapest again was trying to obtain an armistice from the Allies. The Soviet early morning commu- nique centered on the battle for Riga and mud.e no mention of the East Prussian or Hungarian fighting, a customary Russian practice during the initial stages of a major campaign. Moscow dispatches gave strong indications, however, that the Germans had shot their bolt in the Baltic states and were fighting only to cover the withdrawal of their main forces southward into East Prussia. 300 Towns Fall More than 200 German-held towns and villages fell to the advancing Russians north, northeast, east and southeast of Riga Wednesday in a series of armored thrusts that carried as much as 28 miles through the city's main outer defenses. Attacking behind a rolling artillery barrage, Soviet infantrymen broke through a ring of German trenches in the marshes west of Lim- bazi, advanced 12 miles to the Gulf of Riga and linked up with a second column moving down the coast. The combined force cleared a 28-mile stretch of the short; and captured Continued on Pase Seventeen FLASHES SECURITY TALKS END WASHINGTON, Sept. 28.

ADMITS KILLING SWEETHEART SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 28. <UP> Harry Marian, 38-year-old Oklahoma-born Cherokee Indian, today walked into a police Station, told the desk sergeant, "I murdered my sweetheart . . . choked her to death," then showed them the body of Jeanne'Showers Smith, 30, sprawled on the bed in his apartment clad only in a nightgown. Police booked him on a murder charge SALINAS, Sept. ^S. (JF>— The little German-made pistol which ended the life of handsome 19-year- old Jay Lovett at a roadside in Carmel valley last July bore no finger prints nor smudges when it was examined the day after the shooting, an FBI agent testified today. Sam Murphy, special FBI agent at Salinas, was a witness in the murder trial of Mrs. Frances Andrews, 37, member of a wealthy anrl well-known Carmel valley family. Finds Smudge The FBI man said he did find a small smudge area on the left side of the trigger, but nothing to resemble a print. Nor, he added, was there any dust on the weapon. When he first saw the pistol, he testified, it was on a handkerchief, on a police headquarters desk. Mrs. Robbie Lovett, mother of the dead boy, also was on the list of prosecution witnesses for the day. Mrs. Lovett was expected to tell of accompanying 37-year-old Mrs. Andrews to the death scene on a Carmel valley roadside near the Andrews' ranch home the moonless night of July 1~>. Heiress Accused The prosecution charges Mrs. Andrews, a Pennsylvania oil heiress, killed young Lovett with her small foreign-made automatic pistol in a fit of jealousy. The defense contends Lovett was deferred from the army against his wishes as an essential farm worker and took his own life. Mrs. Andrews hos said Jay took the death weapon from her bureau Continued on Hafie Six Fresno Man Hurt in ight WithBandit FRESNO, Sept. 28. UP)— Karl K. Tashjian, 56, drug store operator, today was in serious condition from gunshot wounds in the chest and shoulder suffered during a struggle with a daylight bandit in his store yesterday. Tashjian told District Attorney James Thuesen a tall young man bought a handkerchief, then drew a gun and said -it was a stickup. "YoVre kidding," said Tashjian, but the bandit persisted.

NAZIS ARREST 400 DANES STOCKHOLM, Sept. 28. t*>—The Germans arrested 400 Danes last night in a new, widespread roundup, it was reported today from Copenhagen. The German controlled Danish radio said the prisoners would be sent to concentration camps in Germany Eisenhower Masses Huge Force for Reich Fight; Albania Invasion Veiled Yugoslavs, Other Balkan Fighters Aid in Adriatic Fight ROME, Sept. 28. (U.E)— Greek guerrilla forces were placed under orders of the Allied supreme command today in anticipation of the liberation of their country, but military secrecy veiled the movements of Allied troops invading neighboring Albania. Supreme headquarters of the Allied Mediterranean command remained silent today on the amphibious operation across the Adriatic, which was announced yesterday iu a carefully worded commu- nique giving no indication of where the landings occurred. It was indicated, however, that a special Balkan air force communique would be issued later in the day, giving some information on the invasion. The communique of yesterday indicated that the main blow was struck at an unspecified point on the Albanian coast, while other units landed on the Adriatic Islands of Yugoslavia. The invading forces were being assisted by Albanian and Yugoslavian guerrilla forces, while preparations have been made for the Greek guerrillas to fight as a unit with the Allied troops In the Balkans. General Sarafis and General Zervas. rival leader* of yte Greek guerrillas, declared their full acceptance of the authority of the government- in-exjle at a recent conference. Allied headquarters announced. The government, in turn, placed all Greek forces operating in Greece under orders of the supreme Allied command, and this, too, was accepted by the guerrilla generals. The arrangement was made at a conference presided over by General Sir Henry Maitland Wilson, supreme Allied commander In the Mediter- tanean. Greek Premier George Papandreou, the two guerrilla generals, and other officials. The announcement indicated that most, if not all. of the internal strife in Greece has been eliminated. For long periods during the resistance movement the country has been virtually in a state of civil war, with the various guerrilla groups contending against each other for power rather thun devoting all their efforts against the Germans. The agreement follows closely a recent reorganization of the Greek cabinet to include four Communist members as well as one each from the other two most important guerrilla parties. It was interpreted to mean that all Greeks now are ready to co-operate with the Allies to drive the Germans from their country. Another Shoe Stamp Valid November 1 WASHINGTON, Sept. 28. (UP) — A new shoe ration stamp will become valid beginning November 1, the Office of Price Administration announced today. The exact stamp to be used for this purpose will be disclosed later.

VICTORY MAY BE LATE: CHURCHILL SAYS MORE YANKS MAY IE THROWN INTO BATTLE LONDON. Sept. 28. (UP.)—Prime Minister Winston Churchill implied today that Germany may stave off defeat until well into 1945 and said 'enormous additional" American forces will be thrown Into the battle if Nazi resistance does not collapse soon. Fresh from the Quebec conference with President Roosevelt, the prime minister reviewed the global military and political situation in a 103-min- utc speech to the. House of Commons. Three-Way Conference Churchill said it was essential that Premier Josef ' Stalin join in an Anglo-American-Russian conference as soon as the military'situation permits. He added a doubt that satisfactory agreement on world peace organization could be reached before the three beads of those governments had met again. Emphasizing that lie would not guess—and "It could be no more than a guess"—as to when the European war will end, and deploring "people being carried away into premature expectations of immediate cessation of fighting," Churchill said: "Many persons of the highest technical attainment and knowledge and responsibility have good hopes that it will nil be over by the end of 1944. On the other hand, no one —certainly not I—can guarantee that several months of 1945 may not be required." 145,000 Yanks Lost Churchill made these additional points in his speech, interrupted by a 57-rninute recess of the House: Continued on Page Six Autopsy Fails to Tell Cause of Aimee McPherson's Death OAKLAND. Sept. 28. (UP)—An autopsy today failed to determine the cause of the death of "Sister" Aimee Seinplu McPherson, famous Los Angeles evangelist, and Coroner Mark L. Emerson ordered further laboratory examination of the stomach and an inquest. The autopsy surgeons said her heart was normal. Her stomach is beiiiff removed to a laboratory for further study, they said. The inquest was tentatively set for October (i. OAKLAND, Sept. 28. (U.P.t—An autopsy was to be held today to unravel the final mystery in the colorful career of Evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, 54, who once disappeared on a California beach and turned up in an Arizona desert, as authorities sought to determine the exact cause of her death yesterday morning in an Oakland hotel. The autopsy was ordered held by Alameda County Coroner Mark L. Emerson, after a half-used bottle of sleeping tablets was found near Mrs. McPherson's bed. The evangelist's son, Rolfe, 31, explained that his mother took the pills at night to relieve discomfort from a recent* attack of laryngitis. He said his mother's attorney, Joseph Falner, was bringing a statement from her Los Angeles physician about the heart condition for which she had been under treatment. Announcement of funeral arrange- ments was being withheld pending arrival of Fuiner. However, followers of the evangelist said that tentative plans had been made for Mrs. McPherson's body to lie in state all day Sunday at her Angelus temple in Los Angeles. The coroner said that the autopsy would be performed by Dr. E. F. Scherml, and that a pathologist would be consulted. The famous evangelist apparently was in good health and spirits when she and a group from the Angelus temple arrived in Oakland Monday for a series of lectures and revival meetings. The night before she died she lectured on "The Four-Square Gospel." Mrs. McPherson's son entered her bedroom shortly before her death and found her nearly unconscious and gasping for breath. He summoned doctors who called for the fire department Inhalator squad. She was already dead, however, before the equipment could be used. Troops in 25 Miles of Walling Off Germans in Holland By JAMES M. LONG LONDON, Sept. 28. U& The British Second Ariniy drove eastward to the Maas (Meuse) on a 14-mile front from its Nijmegen corridor and formed a new offensive arc 11 to 14 miles southwest of the Siegfried end position of Kleve today as General Dwight D. Eisenhower built up a 2,000,000 to 3,000,000-nmn «oret for the battle of Germany.

Front line dispatches said the German* *1- • ready were • pulling back from the area to the west of the corridor. The British drive brought un<ter Allied control the west bank of the river from Cuyk to Vierlingsbeak. towns from 2 to 3 miles from the German border. , At the same time Canadian force* captured Calais Citadel on the channel, taking 1000 more prisoners where a 7000-man garrison had been reduced by a, previous 1000 captives. The fall of the town appeared to be a matter of, hours. But the loss of the Allies' only bridgehead across the Rhine at Arnhem in Holland by British First Airborne Division troops, whose 2000 remnants trickled back through the corridor, apparently had dispelled hopes of a quick victory over Germany. Prune Minister Churchill advised the House of Commons that the war in Europe might well continue into 1945. Fighting everywhere with skill, determination and fierceness, the Germans threw Third Army Americans out of their hard-won toehold at the entrance to the moat-ringed fort of Driant which guards the west bank approaches to Metz on the Moselle. The Nazis declared they also had smashed a bridgehead across th§ Antwerp-Turnhout canal west of the Nijmegen corridpr. Against these reverses. First Army Americans burst through the pillbox-studded 8-mlle wide Hurtgen forest. 14 miles southwest of besieged Aachen, in a powerful effort to tear open the blocked way to Cologne. Canadian soldiers, wearing "Mae West" lifejackets, attacked through the canal lines around Calais on the channel coast. They worked across the western flats into the factbry area, converted into a stronghold, toward the port district. Almost everywhere, the Germans said, the Allied attack was increasing in force, from western Holland to the Belfort gap.
