(URI—American "Long Toms," KiTi-mm rifles perched high in the Apennines mountains, hammered the main Bologna-Rimini Highway in northern Italy today as the Fifth Army troops inched forward through mini-filled fields to within less than 10 miles of the Po valley. Tin' systematic artillery lire was cniu'f'iitrateil on •'.<! -"-mile section of the highway between Jiologna and Imolii in 'in atte:npt to cut off Merman transporr movement from norlli central Italv to Rimini nil the Adrialie e'-ast. Although the weather grounded artillery spotter planes, the Long Toms were hurling tons nf explosives over tlie mountain peaks onto tlie superhighway, the best remaining road -till in German hands. An important rail line parallels the road. (A BBC broadcast, recorded by XBC. said it was reported in London that American guns were shelling the outskirts of Bologna, although this was not confirmed by any other Allied source.) (Iround operations virtually were stalled along the entire front by the sixth consecutive d:ty of rain, which already nearly has reached the normal expectable rainfall of 'I inches for October. Despite the heavy mud. however. American troops of the Fifth Army made small gains on the west side of the main highway leading northward fiorn Florence.

Great Britain, the I'nited Staet.s and China—have been placed in a special status, as permanent members of the council. Nu decision can ever be adopted without the consent of all. In tlie Washington negotiations, the suggestion was made to abandon this principle in cases where one permanent member was individually interested oy not allowing it to vote. This would mean renunciation of the principle 1 of concordance and unanimity and attempt to solve the question behind the back of a permanent council member, "If unanimity is required in the solution o£ general cases examined by the council, it is more necessary to have a unanimous opinion in important cases referring to the very essence of the organixation of permanent security, regardless of whether these cases touch the interests of a permanent council member. "The right of a permanent member to vote in tlie above mentioned cases is but the consequence of the principle of concordance and unanimity among tlie leading powers and is the cornerstone in the whole international organixation to which there can be no exception. It is clear from the published document that a further examination of this question, unsolved in Washington, will continue." 1SKAMI FOR XA/IS LOXUOX, Oct. 10—(L'P)—A "(lev- ll's island" for all leading Naxis and members of the Gestapo was proposed today by Sir AValter Layton, British economist, in a pamphlet, "How to Deal AV'tb Germany;" Japan with, all the air power able.

SENATE PUBLIC CORDIALLY INVITED Why Housewives Can Still Get Food in Cans Much of the food the housewife buys in cans today would not be available were it not for the new electrolytic tinning process developed by U. S. Steel. Our armed forces and lend-lease requirements have first call on the limited tin supply, but this revolutionary method of tinning saves two-thirds of the tin formerly used, and makes it possible also to provide a large proportion of cans needed for civilian foods. This electrolytic method produces an amazingly thin, uniform coating, and, with it, U. S. Steel alone has saved the nation more than five million pounds of tin to date. UNITED STATES STEEL
