NAZIS IN TERROR SEIZE 1000 HOSTAGES IN LAST FEW WEEKS Hy EDWIN SII.ANKK STOCKHOLM. Oct. 17. (JP)— Conditions in Norway are fast approaching an explosion. The Germans, tearing revolt, are attempting to smash the home front organization with increased terror. Norwegian legation sources said today more than 1000 Norwegian hostages have been seized in the last few weeks. Arrests as often as possible are made of likely underground leaders. Prisons and concentration camps are filled. C.rinl. the most notorious, near Oslo, is packed With 3000 captives. Shot by "Mistake" Norwegian sources say Gorman patrols search homes and gathering places day and night and that very cil'tPn, Norwegian are shot "by mis. take." Violent sabotage is increasing "in addition to the passive resistance and causing nervousness among the Xaxl.i occupants who are tightening restrictive measures. The Norwegians said they had accurate information showing thf Germans were moving together into selected apartment houses after ordering out the Norwegians. Nazi suicide squads could convert such buildings into defense strongholds. There are no signs, however, of any extensive withdrawal of German troops from Norway, legation sources .said. Troops withdrawn usually are small units and replaced with green soldiers. The stiffening Norwegian resist- once was first noted last spring when u Nazi labor mobili/.alion of three classes, which could easily be diverted to military training, was thwarted. Thousands of young Norwegians vanished from homes and factories into the forests and mountains. Nazi conscription offices were Mown up. records were burned. Lost Ration Books ill Lose Stamps War Ration Book H nnd 4, \vhen issued to replace lost or destroyed book. 0 , will not necessarily contain the same number of stamps tbnt were in the books nt the time of their loss or destruction, the Fresno district OPA office said today. Heretofore, since all stamps are valid Indefinitely and it Is dif ictilt to prove the actual number of stamps contained in a book at the time of loss or destruction, replacement books were issued with little or no tailoring. As a result of t'lls. some people were recei^inp; books containing; more stamps than were in the original books at the time of loss or destruction. Effective October 20, 1!M4, local war price and rationing boards, before issuing a new ration book, will remove all expired stamps and all currently valid stamps that were valid on the date of application, ex- c"pt the last stamp or series of stamps that became valid on or before the date of application. In this way. even though the applicant may receive fewer stamps than were in his lost hook, he will still receive a sufficient number of stamps to enable him to buy enough rationed foods and shoes for his needs, OPA said.

OP)—The trend now is toward "living" war memorials, such as community centers, auditoriums and recreation parks, instead of the traditional tablet-bearing- shaft, mausolem or bronze shaft. This was reported today by Paul V. McNutt, Federal Security Administrator. I All truck drivers hauling rubbish I who allow the refuse to blow to the i ground* because of the lack of a cov- 1 ering will be arrested from now on instead of receiving warnings, it was announced today by Clifford F. Baughman. deputy health officer of the Kern county health department. Air. Baughman explained that be- cnuse the drivers have neglected the many warnings Issued in relation to the provisions of regulation No. 3fi9. of the city sanitary code, which requires all trucks hauling rubbish to have a covering to prevent any refuse from falling or blowing off, the strict action must be taken. Tom Scott, district attorney: John Loustalot. Kern county sheriff: nnd the 'health department are co-operating to curb violators. The action was brought about from the complaints of residents of La Cresta and Skyline regions that rubbish hns been strewn along the roadside by passing trucks. Mr. Baughman explained. He said that the arresting of violators is a last resort. "We want the people to understand the practice must be broken if sanitary conditions are to prevail in this community." the health officer declared. Having entered pleas of guilty, the following were given 30 days suspended sentence for violating regulation :i69. F. Douglas, 1:!:!!) Virginia street; K Parker, 100S Webster street: W. C. Shoat.
