Nationally Adver- $C tised Permanent up All Permanent AIR-COOLED Fischer Air Fount Cap tainTliiiiks Ithacan Is Prisoner Circumstances relating to the present status of First Lt. Wallace C. Forbush, now listed by the War Department as missing In action In Italy, have been received in a letter to his wife. Mrs. Jessie Rankin Forbush of 201 Williams St. The letter was written June 18 by the lieutenant's commanding officer, Capt. Baker D. Newton.. Graduated from Cornell in February. 1942, Lieutenant Forbush was commissioned a second lieutenant in the U.S. Infantry and was called to service the following May. Going overseas in August, 1942, Forbush was stationed for a time in England and then partici pated in the North African campaign before going to Italy. With the U.S. Fifth Army, he was with a platoon of M-10 tank desttoyers, ar.d was reported as missing in action in early February. No other details have been learned by the War Department. Evidence Encouraging Saying that he had purposely de- J layed wiitinp in order to learn further details about Lieutenant Forbush. Captain Newton wrote that the little that he has discovered seemed to him to be encouraging Remarking that he had "no proof whatsoever," the captain said he believed Forbush was a prisoner of war, and he then gave the circumstances of Forbush's disappearance as follows: "Early in the month of February., on the Anzio Beachhead. Wally took his platoon of M-10 tank destroyers to assist another platoon which was very hard pressed and practically surrounded during a German counterattack. He immediately led his platoon toward three German tanks, which were attacking our light flank. Just before coming into their sight, Wally left the protection of his own vehicle and went to the top of a small hill to locate the enemy tanks. Leading Tank Hit "He saw them and ran back and warned his crew; then jumped on to the outside of another M-10 and was giving instruction to his sergeant when the fight started. Wally's leading tank was hit and the blast of the explosion knocked him unconscious off the second M-10. "After all the enemy tanks were 1 destroyed, the sergeant worked his way back to Wally and looked him over. He said that there appeared to be not one mark on him; but it was impossible to get him out because a dash of several yards had to be made across open ground under machine-gun fire to get to and from the little draw where Wally was. Within a few minutes the Ger mans had taken that ground and our units were ptished back." Adding that that particular piece of territory had not been retaken until the first part of June, the captain went on to trll why he thought Forbush was a prisoner. Wounded Given Care "Whatever other faults the Germans may have. I know that they, when time permits, take care of our wounded and dead. If a soldier is found wounded they give him medical treatment; if dead, they bury him and mark his grave." Then the officer told how be had spent 2 days searching for any marks of a grave, and added that he had discovered no evidence of such. "Therefore." he wrote. "I believe that Wally was. if injured, evacuated; if uninjured, tben taken prisoner." The captain praised Forbush as being a "wondeiful guy. and or.e of the bravest men I have ever known." Claiming that "no number of medals or decorations could do full credit to that one self-sacrificing ct of heroism of exposing himself instead of his whole vehirle and crew in order to locate the enemy." the captain said, "it was not foolhardy but common sense and it required mote cold courage than rnost men could claim." Captain Newton's final remark was. "Wally is one of my best f i iends. and I am aw fully anxious to know hs is safe."

Dewey abreast today of fast unfolding organization plans which appeared likely to concentrate the direction of senatorial and congressional, as well as presidential, campaigns in New York City headquarters. The Republican presidential nominee, who spent a quiet holiday at the executive mansion Tuesday, has conferred frequently by telephone with Herbert Brownell Jr.. GOP national chairman. Otherwise he has attained remarkable seclusion for a presidential candidate since his return to Albany last Saturday from Chicago. Dewey has had no appointments with party leaders this week and has expressed the desire not to hold conferences at his farm near Pawling, where he will go Friday for a 'homecoming' celebration and rest. To Seek Governor Aid However, the Dewey strategy board has been busy with plans to w-eld the customary congressional and senatorial campaigns into the drive for the presidency. Tentative arrangements also are underway for a conference with other Republican governors in an attempt to enlist their active support in the vote-getting battle. A Dewey leader told this reporter overtures already have, been made to former Senator John Townsend cf Delaware, who heads the senatorial campaign committer, and to Representative Charles Hal-leck of Indiana, directing efforts to win House control from the Democrats, to move their headquarters to New York City. Both have been operating from Washington fof several months. Drive for Congress In the past, the senatorial, congressional and presidential campaigns have been conducted somewhat independently of each other.

Otherwise, Lake asserted, he would continue his resolve not to eat "until President Roosevelt or Congress frees the REA from politics." "Most of my friends agree with the ends but not the means of my fight," he said. "I have received letters from all parts of the country urging that I do not destroy my usefulness to the cause of elect! ification." The 51-year-old Lake said he has lost 15 pounds of hi normal 200 since starting the fast at noon last Wednesday. Deweyites to link their drive more closely with the local appeals made for members of Congress on a district and statewide basis. In his acceptance speech, Dewey criticized the Roosevelt administration for what he called its failure to work with Congress. His sup-poiters appear anxious to impress on members seeking re-election and others that their fate may depend to some extent on the trend for or against the national ticket. Headquarter Opened With the exception of a press confeience scheduled this afternoon, Dewey expected to occupy most of the day with state business. He will remain in his office Thursday. National campaign headquarters for Dewey open today in a 22-room suite in New York City's Hotel Roosevelt. Brownell said a staff of 30 work-eis would begin taking caie of routine matters. He said he did not expect any Visits at headquarters from high party officials for several days. . Senator Veds Minneapolis (.TO Senator Rufus C. Holman, Portland.
