Two Floating Harbors Used . in Invasion MEANS OF SUPPLYING GROUND TROOPS WHEN NAZIS HELD PORTS TOLD By Associated Press • LONDON, Oct. 16.—Two artificial harbors, built in secret and f Ion ted across the English channel, explain the riddle of how the Allies were able to supply their ground troops which swept through northern Vrance while the Oermans held every port hut Cherbourg. In disclosing the use of these unique harbors, supreme headquarters said last night* that they "made possible the liberation of western Europe." Floating steel barges. 150 concrete caissons or floating boxes and 7 tulles of prefabricated pier equipment divided into segments 480 feet long were used to make the Harbors along with a flotilla of old ships sent to the channel bottom to provide part of the breakwater system. .The worst channel storm In 40 years wrecked one of the harbors before it was completed, but not before ft had contributed heavily to tho stream of men and equipment pouring into France. The other 'was finished as planned—a port as big as Dover, capable of unloading at least 12,000 tons of stores and 2500 vehicles dally. Construction of the harbors was started In June, 194:1, when American and British operations officers decided that French ports falling Into Allied' hands during the Invasion could not possibly have the capacity for the quantity of stores necessary.

Appreciation was also expressed to other city officials who co-operated, and to the schools that assisted in carrying through the program. W; K. Mercer, of the street department, said today that trucks were still picking: up rubbish in some of the arens not completed, hut expected the work to be finished within the next two days. All-Time Depth Record Is Set Continued From Pa«e Nln» equipment is being used: as a mat- tor of fact, heavier equipment has been utilized for drilling shallower holes in the San Joaquin valley. A partial list of equfnment used In- eludes a 13fi foot steel derrick, 360 ton crown block. 18 inch by 8 inch by 20 Inch mud pump and a 1614 inch by 7 34 inch by 20 inch mud pump, H inch by 11 inch twin engine, as well as a complete shut off gate and blow out preventer. The mud weight has been increased from the range of 78 to 80 pounds in the shallower depths to 90-93 pounds at the present bottom. The crew makes a roundtrlp, when changing bits, in a little loss than 8 hours. Approximately 3i£ hours are required to come out of the hole and about 4 hours to go back In. 548 Bits Ised To date, 548 bits have been used. It is estimated that the total weight of the drill pipe and accessory equipment, which is supported by the derrick, Is approximately 250,000 pounds. Following is a table Indicating the progress, by weeks, in drilling KCL 20-13, below 14,000 feet. June 29—14,073. July 5—14,170 (down 97). July 12—14,300 (down 130). July 19—14,425 (down 125).

Al Tietze, general superintendent for Standard's northern California district, puts it this way: "The crew is a good one. well qualified to carry on drilling operations at any depth. Their individual judgment and their co-operation with the drilling superintendent and the foremen have been great factors In getting down this far with as little trouble as has been experienced."

(UR)—Strong evidence was seen in responsible quarters today that week-end conferences of Russian, British and Polish leaders had carried the discussion of the thorny Polish problem to its conclusive stage. The issue of proportional representation In a projected coalition government of the London and Lublin groups of Poles, as well as the nature of the constitutional regime, were understood to be of relatively lesser importance than at the outset of the Moscow conference. Bden Confers Soviet and British leaders were believed determined to resolve the Polish problem at the earliest possible moment. Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden conferred again with Prime Minister Stanlslaw Mlkolajczyk and Foreign Minister Tadeusz Romer, and early this morning the Polish premier met briefly with United States Ambassador W. Averell Harriman. •> The proposed party organization ot a Polish government was disclosed following a series of week end conferences, in which Churchill appeared to be playing the number one role as mediator between the two divergent groups. Provisional Government The British were understood to favor the organization of a provisional government, with about three representatives from each of the five major Polish political parties, rather than- a suggested fusion of members of the Polish government in exile, which operates from London, and the Polish National Committee of Liberation, set up In Lublin, Under the new plan, Mlkolajczyk, highest ranking member of the peasant party, would appear to be the leading candidate for the premiership of the new combination. The other four parties suggested in the new plan were the Socialist, National Democratic. Christian Labor, and Polish Workers.

OP\— Doubt over the fate of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, famed commander of the Afrika Korps and one of the ablest leaders In the German army, was dispelled .Sunday when the Berlin radio announced that he had died of wounds. Rumors of Rommel's' death had been current sinre late July when Allied field dispatches quoted German prisoners as saying he hud succumbed to injuries suffered when hi? car was strafed by Allied planes In Xrrmandy. The Germans subsequently denied his death but acknowledged he had suffered H brain concussion and other injuries in an automobile accident during a strafing attack on July 17. The Berlin broadcast yesterday did not say how Rommel was wounded or when Ije had died, but said Adolf Hitler had ordered a state funeral. The announcement described him as one of Germany'.* "most successful army leaders." ' Rommel, who became known as the "Desert Fox" during the African campaign, when his -troops drove the British to the gates of Alexandria before they were stopped In October, 1942, by General Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's Eighth Army, was ground commander of German forces In Normandy at the time of the Allied Invasion. He was reported to have quarreled with Field Marshal General Karl Rudolf Gerd von Runstedt — then over-all German commander in western Europe—concerning tractIcs used in combating the invasion. On July (i the Berlin radio announced that You Runstedt had been replaced by Field Marshal-General Gucnther von Kluke in a move that apparently was victory for Rommel. Germans Open Big Aachen Tank Fight Continued Prom Page One lleving the Aachen garrison cost the Nazis heavily, including 10 tanks destroyed, a front dispatch reported -"A large part 01 Aachen is now in our hands, and military quarters are confident that the situation there is very secure," United Press War Correspondent Henry T. Gorrell reported from First Army headquarters. Along with the frustrated German relief forces, the Aachen Garrison suffered heavy casualties today as the armies fought in and northeast of the city in a drenching downpour. United States fighter planes braved the murky weather to help break up the German counterattacks. They dropped down below the dripping clouds to altitudes of 50 feet to shoot up the German concentrations, some of which scattered in all directions under the unexpected aerial attack. German tanks and troops struck in force some 4 miles northeast of Aachen in an attempt to smash through the United States First Army Correspondent Jack Franklsh reported from a position east of Aachen. Veteran Panzer Grenadier troops, taking advantage of a heavy rain which grounded United States fighter-bombers, uncorked a third effort to retake the Siegfried fortifications along the Crucifix hill-Stolberg ridge. American infantry and artillery broke up the pre-dawn onslaught. The main weight of the attack was concentrated in the area southwest of Verlautenheide, which is 3 miles northeast of Aachen. United Press War Correspondent Henry T. Gorrell reported that the general "Just completed a tour of the front lines, making sure that we're buttoned up for the next at tack." Leave Fort Driant Lieutenant-General George S. Patton's Third Army headquarters announced that the Americans had withdrawn from Fort Driant, outpost of the Metz fortifications, after three weeks of fighting. A spokesman said Driant could have been taken by frontal assault, but It would not have been worth the casualties it would have cost. On the Franco-American Sixth Army Group front in eastern France. an attack on a 60-mlla line carried French troops through snow-tipped ridges 3000 feet high to within 2 miles of the Remiremont-Gerardmer road through the Schulcht pass above Belfort. Lieutenant-General Jacob L.. Deever's forces gained up to 5 miles In the first 12 hours of their offensive along a front stretching north from Le Thlllot, some 30 miles above Belfort, to the Marnc-Rhine canal near Lunevllle. At the northern end of the front, British Second Army patrols in The Netherlands thrust across the lower Rhine river for the first time since the Red Devil paratroops made their abortive attack on Arnheim three weeks ago. Crossing the 150-foot-wlde river under cover of darkness during the night, they foraged in and around the industrial town of Renkum, 8 miles west of Arnhem, without meeting opposition. There was no Indication, however, that the patrol activity was likely to develop Into an attack or that the Germans were evacuating the north bank of the lower Rhine, known to be heavily defended. Southeast of Arnheim, British forces crossed the Milerbeek river and advanced to within a mile and a half of Venray, 3 miles below Overloon, and also captured Smakt, dvie east of Overloon. Both columns reported signs that the enemy was weakening, possibly drawing off his forces to reinforce those near Aachen. Rain was turning marshes Into lakes, hampering armored support. Thi> Canadian First Army linked up Its bridgeheads south of the Scheldt' river arid north of the Leopold canal in southwestern Holland. British troopw fighting with the First Army captured Woensdrecht, hard core of enemy resistance at the entrance to the Beveland-Walcheren peninsula, after u three-hour attack. Lieutenant-General Alexander M. Patch's American Seventh Army, at the northern end of the offensive sector, pushed through the Parroy forest, stormed the ancient fort! of Manonviller and captured Ernber- menll, 10 miles east of Lunevllle. Some'13 miles southeast of Lune- vllle, other American troops captured Glonvllle and Fontenoy, threatening the highway hub of Baccarat, guarding the Saverne gap and Donon pass routes to Strasbourg. Another column farther south seized Kovllle. 4 miles north of Ram- bervlllers, Fi'emlfontalne, 6 n.iles south, and several other villages, but the Germans still were defending their Mortagne river line and threw armor Into a woodland battle between Brouveilieura and Bruyeres. gfte gafatrgfitlb Californian Monday, October 16,1944 Lieut.

LOS ANGELES. Oct. 1*. (JPt— . Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthan said today that tho vast wartime increase In the public debt,has been accomplished at an average Interest rate of only 1% per c«nt. compared with 4'i per cent in World War I. "The resulting interest saving approximates $4.000,000.000 a year," he j said in an address prepared for delivery at a war bond rally. He added that Interest on all securities sold during this conflict has been fully taxable, while issues marketed during the last World War were all either wholly or partially exempt. "This has resulted In a further net saving to the treasury amounting to several hundred million dollars a year," he declared. "I do not anticipate a rise In interest rates in the foreseeable future. \Ve believe . . . we shall be able to refund our obligations, as they come ilue, at rates comparable, to those now prevailing. Thus the saving: to the treasury will continue over, A ' long period of years." He said that because the banks have been encouraged to purchase issues of short maturity, the country's financial system "is In a position of unparalleled liquidity," which, he asserted, will prevent a "recurrence of such unsettling deflation as came in the aftermath of World War L" Morgenthau came here to aid In plans for the Sixth War Loan drive ; which will begin November 20. j — i Yank Bombs Hit Near' Two Gardner WASPS Injured in Crash Two Gardner Field WASPS were hurt In an air accident Sunday at B p. m.. when their plane crashed in a take-off at the field.
