Don't take chances with your car. Before winter gets well started, many war- weary cars will run into stormy weather of their own making. They'll falter and then fold up completely because somebody neglected to give them the right kind of care. It's vital to our country that every car stay in steady service, in order to help ca the increasingly critical transportation situation. Have your car expertiy inspected now. Make an appointment with the nearest Studebaker dealer. Assure yourself of "smooth sailing" through the months ahead.

An Allied spokesman said ho believed many civilians had beon evacuated, but there have been only fragmentary reports of civilians leaving during the past fortnight. (/orrpll reported at 9:30 a. m. that Amorirnn artillery, completely rins- \t\K Aachen, and forcen of dive bombers, wore awaiting the command to pive the city the heaviest and most destrurtive bombardment yet unleashed against a German community. At ]1 n. m., the American expeditionary forces radio was heard broadcast iri£: "Thorn has been no word or reply to the surrender ultimatum tendered by the commander of the American t'orri's before Aachen. The ultima- nun expired 10 minutes ago." Thus medieval Aachen with a history dating back to the year 765 soon may become a ruin. The outer city with its modern factories and commercial buildings largely is new, hut inside the ramparts of the nn- cient town is the cathedral, begun in 71)0 and containing the tomb of CharU-magne, and the fourteenth century town ball built on the ruins ul 1 Chnrlcmagne's palace.

Several hours nfter dawn, American infantry attacked a German pocket still holding out in Barden- herg. 4U miles north of Aachen. American troop.s were estimated to have destroyed at least HO German tanks in the past three days Jn the Harden berg- A Isdorf area. Taken Prisoner | Prisoners taken yesterday in the Aacheu area totaled 487, boosting tho grand total taken by Lieutenant- Genera] Courtney Hodges' American First Army to 192,503. General Dwight D. Eisenhower's daily communique confirmed earlier front reports of the capture of Schaufenberg, 1 mile east of Alsdorf, and Bardenberg. and said one column had reached Wurselen, 2 miles north of Aachen. It also confirmed the severance of the main Aachen- Cologne highway in the encirclement of Aachen Itself. "Hard fighting" was under way southwest of Hurtgen, 20 miles east rt Aachen, and along the frontier In the vicinity of Monschau, 16 miles southeast of Aachen, the communi- que sairl. A German Tnmsocean broadcast claimed that German troops had re-occupied some pillboxes of the Siegfried Line in close-range fighting at Stolberg, 5U miles east of Aachen. The Allied radio nt Luxenbourg said pressure against the Germans on the western front had increased to such an extent that Marshal \Valther Model had issued an order of the day warning that "This is the last and final battle." On the Netherlands front the Canadian Second Army cut off 10,000 Germans on the Walcheren and Rcveinnd peninsula in the Schelde river estuary with an advance across the causeway linking the pcnisula with the mainland. Licutennnt-Gennral Ooorgo S. Patton's American Third Army reached the Selllo river, last water barrier between the Moselle «nd the Saar basin, and repulsed two light enemy counterattacks in the Nancy sector last night. Heavy street fighting continued in Maizieres, 6 miles north of Metz, while other Third Army troops battled the Germans in the underground tunnels of Fort Driant, southeast of Metz. The Seventh Army seized a substantial bridgehead across the Mo- setlotte river near Saulures in a developing drive to outflank the strategic Belfort g'ap, so 21 miles south. Civil War Veteran Observes Birthday "WEST LOS AXGELKS, Oct. 11. (U.P.I—Charles Manning, white-haired Civil AVar veteran, observed his one hundred fourth birthday at tho Veterans Hospital today with the re mark it was getting hard for him to bear but otherwise lie felt fine. "Sure, 1 smoke—big black cigars, ; when I can get them," he said. i "Sure, I drink. Whisky has always stuck with me, and I'll always stick with whisky." Reds Launch Big Drive on Reichland Continued From Page One the Baltic north of Memel, enabled the Russians to launch the East Prussian attack by relieving them of threats of flanking thrusts by the Germans to the north. Another 100,000 Face Trap Another 100,000 Germans faced death or capture at the southern end of tho eastern front as Marshal Ho dion Y. Malinovsky's Second Ukrainian Army widened its newly won hold on the Belgrade-Athens railway, last practical escape line for the enemy's garrisiona in Greece, Albania and southern Yugoslavia. General Ivan C. Bugramian's First Baltic Army sprang the trap on the remnant? of 15 German divisions in Latvia with a powerful drive to the Baltic at Palange. 14 miles'north of Memel, pinning them in a. 6000- sqiiarc-milo pocket with their only hope of escape by sea or air through a Soviet blockade. Red Air Force bombers and assault planes, along with aircraft of the Red Banner Fleet, already were pounding dock installations and ships massed in Riga, VentspHs and Lie- pa.ia (Libau) harbors to discourage any large-scale attempt at a Dunkerque evacuation. Transports Sunk Fires, visible for 125 miles, were started at Liepaja Monday night, while two transports, a trawler and an escort cutter were sunk at Riga. The Germans rushed up reinforcements of two tank and three rifle divisions and counterattacked 20 times in 24 hours in a futile attempt to keep open their land escape route to East Prussia. Five hundred Germans were captured. The entrapment of the Latvian force brought to 27 the number of German divisions virtually eliminated on tho Baltie front since the beginning of the offensive at Narva. divisions were smashed at Narva. Basrumian'a men broke into the out-lying suburbs of the German stronghold of Memel after capturing Gargzdai, 9 miles east of Memel on the border fixed by Adolf Hitler when he annexed the port to East Prussia in the prewar days of 1939. Soviet artillery already was bombarding Memel. Navy Wins Great \ Stalin Praises Victory Near Japan Allied Co-operation- Continued From Page On« carrying troops and supplies were sunk or damaged. Generalissimo Chlangr-Kal-shek said 400.000 Chinese regulars, cut off in eastern China by the Japanese drive down the center of the nation, still "are capable of delivering massive blows agrainst the enemy." Western Africans re-captured Mowdolk in the southeast corner of India, near the Burma border. Continued From Page On* Churchill and Stalin sat side by side. When the guests retired to another room for coffee the two continued talking. Guests remarked that rarely in Moscow history had such lavish expressions of Allied friendship been ma,de. KOISO CALLS LEADERS FOR WAR CONFERENCE By United Prenii 4. Premier Kuntakl Koiso, confronted with the steadily growing threat of an American fleet roaming within 1M)0 miles of the homeland, called the elder statesmen of Japan into a conference Jit his official residence Wednesday, the Tokyo radio re- portejj in a broadcast recorded by United Press, San Francisco. Indicative of the military significance of the meeting, Tokyo reported Navy Minister Mitsximasa Yonai attended, presumably to provide a report on Admiral William F. Ualsey's carrier strike against the Ryukyu islands between Japan and Formosa. Tokyo simultaneously warned the Japanese public that "it appears the enemy task force is still lurking in the waters off Ryukyu islands," and said: "We must not be caught off guard."

(UR)—Reliable sources said today that Premier Stanislaw Mlkolajczyk of the Polish exile government has accepted a n invitation to join the Churchill-Stalin conference and would leave soon for Moscow.
