One was set by (Jermnn night bombers, aiming at thp American front lines but hitting HIP city instead. Several fires still smouldered when the Allied dive bombers? returned to their task of systematic destruction today. The siege forces now were fighting within the city limits of Aachen, but by mid-day had not entered the circle of parkways extending a radius of some !W(i yards from the- ancient cathedral in the- center of the city. 1(18 Tons of ISmnbs Dropped American l(i:.s, 155 long toms and S-incli howitzer poured i;500 rounds into selected targets within the city yesterday in the first phase of preparation for today's infantry attack. The dive bombers dropped 108 tons. Cerman broadcasts said flame- throwing tanks led the American advance into Aachen. The city, Berlin reported, was under assault by a "titanic array of. planes, tanks and heavy artillery." The Cprmans still were fighting desperately for the narrow, shell- swept corridor through the American positions northeast of Aachen. A two-hour counterattack supported by 15 to 20 tanks was broken up at 8 o'clock last night by United States artillery and small arms fire which inflicted heavy losses on the Nazis. Still Not Destroyed Patrols entered the city last night, and reported "good" results in yesterday's bombing and shelling, but field dispatches said the city still was far from being destroyed. Though reconnaissance pilots reported some Nazi troops and vehicles attempted to run the gauntlet from Aachen through the escape gap late yesterday, the arrival of reinforce- OWENS TOY STORE 1228 " Pick Your Toys Now You Get the Best to Choose From.

MUSTEROIF ments at the front and the fury of German counterattacks on both was determined to hold the city as long as possible despite the cost. The Germans began their latest counterattack in an attempt to widen the Aachen corridor at 9:30 a. m. east of Bardenberg, four miles north northeast of Aachen, and It still was continuing a half hour later. Ten tanks supported the enemy Infantry. Attack Broken A similar attack at 5:30 p. in. yesterday by perhaps "000 German troops supported by tanks was broken up by American tanks and artillery without loss of ground before the enemy even reached our infantry. American tanka and artillery also halted and dispersed two enemy columns of perhaps 10,000 men and appropriate armor which boldly sought to reinforce the garrison with a daylight advance through the escape gap yesterday. Stunned by the relentless Allied air and land bombardment, individual German trops were surrendering by the scores. Some 400 prisoners had been counted in the 24 hours ended last midnight. American military authorities estimated that 2000 to 3000 of Aachen's llid.UOO civilians still were inside the city, but German prisoners placed the number as high as 15.000. Some slept in the outskirts during the night and came into work during the day, they said. Gain at Ilurtgcn Southeast of Aachen, other American troops punched out limited new gains and cut ,the .Monschau-Duren road about a mile southwest of Hurtgen, further limiting the Germans' ability to maneuver. Lk'utenant-Goneral George S. Patton's American Third Army, farther south, continued its housc-tohouse battle, for Maihieres-Les Metx, 6 miles north of Mctz. Supreme headquarters reported In a communique that the Germans were using the basements of houses as antitank positions. Patten's men also repulsed a strong German counterattack near Letricourt, 15 miles northeast of Nancy. Bridgehead Extended On the Netherlands front, Canadian forces extended their bridgehead on the south bank of tho Schelde river to 700 by 5000 yards, possibly by additional amphibious landings. However, a dispatch from Twenty-first Army Group headquarters at 10 a. m. today said Canadian operations had been on a reduced scale during the past 24 hours. German forces were revealed to have abandoned their bridgehead on the south bank of the lower Rhine west of the British Second Army's spearhead below Arnhem. Fighters and'fighter-bombers attacked enemy strong points, troop concentrations, and tanks in the Arnhem area. Andrews Trial Will Be Resumed Friday Continued From Pa«e One "and go out into the blackness like an Indian after a deer and onto a public highway, where cars go up and down, deliberately kill Jay Lov- rtt and throw her gun down beside him?" "I come here as a friend of Mrs. Andrews," he continued, "and from the depths of my heart as I stand here, she is Innocent. The record shows that she is innocent by its very lack of testimony and absence to establish a motive on her part." Any verdict but acquittal, Martin told the jury of eight women and four :nen, "will place a stain and a Wot on the judicial history of Monterey county." Judge Henry O. Jorgenscn, recessing the trial until 10 a. in. Friday, told the jurors that if the state does not conclude Its arguments until tomorrow afternoon, he will not give them the case until Saturday morning—the first Saturday during which the four-week trial would be in session. Friedman In his final arguments charged that District Attorney Brazil had not proved a motive for the asserted murder, which Brazil charged was Mrs. Andrews' alleged jealousy of Mrs. Nancy Linde, wife of a San Francisco doctor. The defense attorney asserted that scratches-on the dead youth's face— scratches Brazil contended were inflicted by Mrs. Andrews during a quarrel just before she allegedly shot him with her .25 caliber automatic—were received after he fell down on a gravel roadway following what the defense said was an act of suicide.

In that connection Stalin's compliments to American genius In planning and the part this has played In the war bear a,n application to the German question since Stulin expressed hope this genius might be applied with equal brilliance toward maintaining world peace. There was cautious optimism here on the chances of settling the Polish question. Two weeks ago reconciliation would have seemed from Moscow to be almost hopeless. However, it was agreed that if anyone can achieve un understanding it will be Mikolajexyk, who always has had the respect not only of the Kremlin but of the Lublin Poles. The fact that Mikolajczyk was accompanied by General Stanislaw Tabor of the Polish home army indicated preparations were being made for discussion of military questions on which the split between the Polish groups is most grave since the Warsaw uprising On the Lublin side, Genera Michael Uola-Zymierski, commando of Lublin forces, is present to repre sent the viewpoint of the Polish forces originally organized in Russia The urgency of the conversation is indicated by the pace of develop ments in the Balkans where mill tary and diplomatic achievement: confronting the Allies with a hos of unsettled problems in every state With Hungary tottering on the verge of getting out of the war the prospect that the Red Army soon will approach the southern frontiers Aimee's Daughter Withholds Plans LOS AXGELES, Oct. \1.

She grabs a rolling pin-and the last they saw of him, the tramp was making dust tracks to the state line. "It ain't only that I don't like laziness," says Esther, u 'specially in wartime. It's that that particular hammock is Ned's hammock-and Ned's flghtin* for it overseas!" Then she shows us Ned's last letter where he says: "I keep dreaming of my hammock in the orchard, with Rags lying under* neath, and a cool glass of beer beside me." A soldier* picture of hone! The little friendly pleasures that he misses so! From where I sit, Esther's mighty right in wanting to defend those "little things" from all Intruders. They're among the things oar men look forward to returning to-the things we want to keep intact far them.
