A factory at Woilnrwist, 30 miles southeast nf Aachen, also was hit by the mediums, and UK' double railroad linn near Hlegen was blasted by 12.000 pounds of bombs. 'Hie now offensive abruptly ended a week of see-saw fighting along tho 4ti()-tnile Allied front from Holland to the Holfort gap, in which Americans and British turned back scores of sharp enemy counterattacks and forged ahead a few miles in nearly all sectors. Some of those gains yesterday wore up to 3 and 4 miles. It followed enemy warnings for several days that the Allies were preparing powerful blows in the Aachen area. the. Xijmogen corridor held by the British to the north, and in the Moselle and Belfort areas to the south. Yesterday General Dwlght D. Eisenhower's supreme headquarters broadcast to Austrians "to prepare for the arrival of the Allies." The Seventh Army, fighting forward a few hundred yards, had edged into the western entrance of the Kelfort gap in the sector nearest Austria.

BEN-GAY THI ORIGINAL ANALGESIQUE BAH ME 'PAlN \ RHEUMATISM \ THERE'S ALSO *' ^ NEURALGIA , MUD BEN-GAY DUr TO I AND COLDS I FOR CHILDREN of the strongest German counterattacks, attacks which were aimed at severing tho Nljmegen corridor, and pushed on in an operation that broadened their salient toward the west. The Germans sagged back Into the defense, after the ruin of those greatest counterattacks wince Caon In Normandy, and were reported to be starting a fighting retreat from the Dutch coastal loop whern 200,000 enemy soldiers may be in danger of entrapment. About So German divisions wore reported resisting the Canadian ail- vancps along a 30-mile sector of thrf Antwerp-Turnhont canal and the Dutch frontier to the west. General Elsenhower today advised Inhabitants of the Dutch islands in the estuary of thp Schelde, west of Antwerp, to evacuate the islands Immediately in vlnw of the likelihood of a "severe and prolonged aerial bombardment." Mig Nazi guns on the islands of Walcheren and Zuid Beveland still block Allied use of Antwerp port. Led by hard-fighting armor, the British drove 6 miles north of tho village of Oss. at the, northwestern corner of their salient, to the Maas (Mouse), and organized a front commanding tho Nazi defense ,llne 3 miles oast of Hertogenbosch. The Germans said this armored unit was Marshal Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's old "desert rat" Seventh Division which helped chase Field Marshal Erwin Rommel across Africa. It was through Hertogpnliosch that the Germans wore attempting to l<oo|> open a safety valve between tho British cutoff and the broad Holland Deep, an estuary of tho Maas. A correspondent reported increasing signs of a pull-out through this tightening gap of tens of thousands of German troops still in southwestern Holland. Still striking for the long Ni.imegcn bridge across the Waal Rhine, the Germans sent tanks, flamethrowers and infantry boating against the Tommies' line northeast and southeast of the city, but they were broken up by rocket-firing Typhoon attacks, British heavy guns and infantry steel. Some groups of 15 to 20 infiltrated into the British lines but they were being wiped out today. The British broadened their corridor to the west by pushing 4 miles north of the town of Oss to the Maas (Meuse) forming a solid 18-mile assault wall against the German line through Nuland and Berlicum. 3 to 5 miles east of 'S Hertogenbosch. Allied troops also pushed northward out of Antwerp, capturing the village of Brecht, 11 miles northeast of Antwerp and 17 miles from Breda in Holland. To t^e southwest of the new Aachen offensive Americans captured the seventh century Luxembourg bprder town of Grevenmacher, 15 miles northeast of the city of Luxembourg and 12 miles southwest of Trier. Lieutenant-General George S. Patton's Third Army slugged it out with strong German counterattacks near Jallaucourt, It! miles northeast of Nancy, in a 4-hour fight In which 1!) Nazi tanks were knocked out— bringing Patton-'s total to 138 In the last 4 days. Then, almost over the same ground, the Third slammed its way forward 1 to 3 miles clear through the forest of Greinecy to the high ground around Presnes En Saunois, a mile beyond Jallaucourt, and to hills overlooking Coutures.

PHILLIPS MUSIC COMPANY 1610 Nineteenth Street TO AMERICAN WOMEN ASKING— "Will Defeat of Germany Lessen the Need for Saving Used Fats?" -THE GOVERNMENT ANSWERS "NO!" O' I.EE MARSHALL ^NTHE contrary, Mrs. America, the need for saving used cooking fats will be as great or greater than ever. Victory over Germany still leaves the Japs in possession of the Dutch East Indies, the Philippines and Malaya — countries from which we formerly imported about one billion pounds of fats and oils each year. Even victory over Japan will not ease the situation immediately. Not for a year or more can these areas be brought back to pre-war production levels. In the meantime, the need for your used fats will be as acute as ever for these reasons: J. Even after European victory, we still hav« Japan to beat. Vast luppliei of ammunition, medicines, parachutes, rubber boats, toapt and other battlefield essentials must keep on going to our fighting men in a steady stream. These all require fats to make. fL We must help in the rehabilitation of liberated countries, »uch as Greece, Norway and the Netherlands, with medicines, machinery, etc. O Many factories now producing for war will turn to manufacturing the civilian goods we need BO urgently. These factoriei will consume vast quantities of industrial fan. American farmers are doing everything possible to build up domestic production of fats and oils. But during the next 12 months, because of a smaller hog kill and reduced yields of some oil-seed crops, we expect that approximately a billion-and-a-third pounds less of fats will be produced. Need Greater Than Ever Therefore, more than ever, salvaging used cooking fats is an important resource on which the country must continue to lean in order to tide us over. Saving used fats is not a glamorous task. It takes effort. But it is one that only you, the American housewife, can perform for the country. We ask you to continue the wonderful job you are doing to help speed final Victory. DIRBCTOR OF DISTRIBUTION WAR FOOD ADMINISTRATION For every pound of used fat, your butcher will give you 4<f and two free red pointslKeepon saving every drop. Reds Tighten Grip on 200,000 Nazis Continued From Page One valley at the last moment by rushing up mobile reserves, but they wore intercepted and routed. In a single sector, nearly 1000 Germans were killed and six self-propelled guns were destroyed. Front reports said the Russians also were advancnig through south- pastern Hungary toward Szeged, Hungary's second city, and were widening their bridgehead on tho west bank of the Murestil river in center Transylvania, but the Soviet high command's Sunday midnight communique—one of the briefest In recent weeks—gave no details of campaigns. Riga News lacking Information also was lacking on the progress of the Soviet advance on Riga, capital of Latvia. Russian and German batteries continued their artillery duel across the Vistula at Warsaw. (London observers attributed the lack of concrete developments on most of thu pastern front to Soviet preparations for a fall offensive designed to clear the Balkans, knock Hungary out of the war, liberate Czechoslovakia and decide the fate of East Prussia at Warsaw.) FINNS BATTLE NAZIS AT SWEDISH BORDER STOCKHOLM, Oct. 2. OP—The Finnish communique said today the Finns had been battling German troops in Tornea, in northwestern Finland at the Swedish border, since yesterday morning. The communique also announced that Finnish troops had captured an island in the Gulf of Bothnia off Komi, where the Germans were reported carrying out extensive demolitions. Komi is several miles south of Tornea. The Helsinki communique meanwhile announced the capture of a small Nazi force near Pudas.jarvi. in central Finland, and said a quantity of German equipment, including transport, also was taken. The Finn?, pursuing the retiring Nazis, had passed the village ot Taivalkoski, east of Pudasjarvi, the communique said. The Germans burned and destroyed farms In the area before evacuating. McLaglen Witness in Andrews Case Continued From Tnue One only one more nonexpert witness, whom he identified only as a "person from Los Angeles," injecting u, surprise element. announced he had but three more days of testimony to present as the murder trial opened its third week, promised to produce only one more nonexpert witness, whom he identified only as a "person from Los Angeles," injecting a surprise element. Defense Counsel Leo Friedman, who commented that the first 28 state witnesses "have all been witnesses for the defense," said he would call at the most eight persons to testify in behalf of the wealthy 38-year-old matron, thus possibly closing direct testhnony this week. Friedman intimated during the questioning of jurors that Mrs. Andrews would not tell her story of the death of her young protege, whom the defense contends committed suicide. Courtroom observers believed that Friedman, confident the state has failed to prove a murder charge, would keep the attractive defendant off the stand. Friedman was expected to ask Judge H. C. Jorgensen to eliminate from the trial record various testimony by which the state attempted to prove Mrs. Andrews was jealous of attentions paid by young Lovett to Mrs. Nancy Linde, petite, red- haired neighbor and wife of a San Francisco physician. ARRESTED ON CHARGES Two men were arrested early Sunday morning on charges of selling liquor without a license. They were William Fred Schweikert, 47, 105 Decatur street, Oildale, arrested at I ::10 a. m., and Wilburn Doscr, 25, 417 Columbus street, arrested at 2:30 a. m. Officers Hubbard and Madden of the State Board of Equalization and Sergeant Frank C. Greer of the police department made the arrests. Warren to Speak for Dewey Tonight Continued From rage One tors set out this week in behalf of the national ticket. Governor John \V. Bricker of Ohio, the vice-presidential nominee, and Earl Warren ot California, who withdrew from the Chicago contest for second place of the G. O. P. national ticket, lead off with speeches this afternoon and tonight. Bricker sets out on a fl250-rallc four-week tour that will take him from Bowling Green, Ky., to Duluth, Minn. This week and then on through the midwest and far west, where he will attempt to consolidate, a trail already blazed by Governor Thomas E. Dewey, the presidential candidate. The California Governor Is due to speak for the national ticket In Minneapolis tonight, at Rockford, 111., tomourow, and at Columbus, Ohio, Wednesday. Dewey, who returned last Thursday from a three-week cross country tour, began preparing material today for the final phases of his drive. His next scheduled, speech is at Charleston, W. Va., Saturday night, although he may address the country by radio from Albany before then. After a week-end of rest, the New York governor called in Elliott Bell, state superintendent of banks, for a conference last night on the verbal slugging yet to be aimed at the supporters of a fourth term for President Roosevelt. Bell has been one of the governor's closest advisers on campaign strategy and speech drafting. Although tho rest of the Dewey campaign was being held open to meet the moves of New Deal supporters, indications mounted that Sidney Hillman and Karl Browder were due for increasing Republican attention. Chinese Blame Allies for Losses Continued From Fan Ono l~r> ships unquestionable sunk—although some may have surpassed it in tonnage. Two-thirds of the September total consisted of barges, luggers, sampans, riverboau and other small boats. The losses that really hurt Japan were the 303 transports, freighters, tankers, coastal vessels and warships sent to the bottom. Of these 201 were sunk by planes and warships of Admiral Chester \V. Nimitz, and General Douglas MaoArthur's commands, mostly in and around the Philippines. The remaining 102 were divided almost equally between American submarines, British subs, and China-based planes.

Public to Joe Citizen realizes, somehow, that the transport truck lines are doing a perfectly thundering war job. But If most people are a mite vague about it, that's no wonder. Even the experts are amazed at the whole story. For, by their service to communities large and small, the auto fleet* are keeping America in gear—and high gear at that. You know the truck operators are in there pitching when you realize they're up against the same war-time difficulties that beset any individual motorist— only multiplied to giant proportions. Short of manpower and maintenance help—battling to solve scarcity problems on tires, gasoline and equipment—they still keep pushing those big multi-wheeled babies over the highways. It's only a fly-weight exagl geration to suggest that, without transport trucking service, we'd be righting a war withf muzzle-loaders and ox-teams. Life at home, too, would be pretty rugged. Ono roason it's hard to appreciate the contribution of the trucks is that transport trucking is about the youngest of the industries. It's like the Air Force. A few years ago it practically didn't exist. But now look! Another reason is that few people get out on the highways these days. You don't see the transport trucks a-rolling. But you needn't wait for Thanks* giving to be thankful that— like the stars on a cloudy night —although you don't see them, they're on the job. STANDARD OF CALIFORNIA WHO WILL PAY YOUR FUNERAL BILLS?
