Of that I am deeply convinced. "I am equally convinced that to the extent that we leave our international relations to the personal secret diplomacy of the president, our efforts to achieve a lasting peace will fail. "In many directions today our 1 oreijn policy gives cause ,. for deep anxiety." President Roosevelt Is due to address the Foreign Policy Association here Saturday night in his first speech outside of Washington since he opened his campaign for a fourth term. Dewey, emphasizing his stand that the building of an international peace organization should be a bi-partisan job, served notice on members of his own party as well as the Democrats that "we must not be diverted from our goal by the irreconcil-ables of either camp." ""There are two great disasters which could occur to us," he said. "The first would be if a few individual rulers should in secret conferences try to sh&oe the future peace of the world. "The second would be for any nation involved to break up into quarreling groups over individual proposals. GOOD BEGINNING "We must make certain that our participation in this world organization is not subjected to reservations that would nullify the power of that organization to maintain peace and to halt future aggression. The surest way to invite disaster is to insist that everything must be perfect from the start." Reiterating his belief that the recent Dumbarton Oaks conference between the United States, Britain. Russia and China had made a "great beginning," the GOP candidate said: "It would be a profound tragedy If, after having reached a broad general area of agreement on the major principles, we should now fall to impatient quarreling over things still to be settled, ' "There are already those among us who want to attack the work that was done at Dumbarton Oaks because it did not go far enough. There are others, equally vehement, who are fearful that the plans go too far. "Extremists on both sides have missed the point. The important point is that a beginning has been made." Stressing the importance he attaches to post-war world planning, Dewey said at the outset that the Nazi's last desperate act in launching "Hitler's blind weapon of revenge, the robot bomb," serves to warn us that another World War will not begin by 8 surprise attack on an outlying base, such as Pearl Harbor, "It will begin," he said, "when robot bombs launched thousands of miles away suddenly rain death and destruction on our major cities." Asserting the robot bomb has put us under the guns of any aggressor nation in the world, he declared: "We have had a narrow escape. We dare not take another chance. This war must be the last war."

In China Japanese forces advanced westward six miles to within 18 miles of Hingan. This operation was one phase of Japanese attempts to outflank Kwei lin, center of China s defense system in the south. For 12 days the Chinese had held the invaders 12 miles west of Hingan and 25 miles north of Kweilin. The Chinese repulsed the Jap anese in the Pingnam sector, far south of Kweilin. Allied forces were blasting the Japanese on the Tiddim and Arakan fronts in Burma. Allied New Guinea headquar ters today reported 150 planes smashed Japanese airdromes, shipping and defense installations at "jram and Boeroe islands, west of Dutch New Guinea. The airmen unloaded ' 90 tons of explosives. Sixty tons of bombs were dropped on Namlea air fieid, Amboina island, near Ceram. Fighter planes went after shipping off Halmahera and in Ca- gayan harbor, northern Mindanao island, Philippines. They also hit supply dumps and installa tions at Manokawari, Dutch New Guinea.

FORECAST FLORIDA Increasing winds, reaching peak of 75 miles an hour this afternoon, diminishing Friday. (Continued From Page 1) Ryukyu Islands, Formosa, the Pescadores and the Philippines, the admiral said the Japanese lost 91 S planes 565 shot down and 350 destroyed on the ground. Of the total 269 were nailed over targets, 256 were blasted out of the air by American fliers near the Third Fleet and 40 were shot down by fleet anti-aircraft guns. More complete reports on the Formosa actions of Oct. 11 showed these results: Japanese ships sunk, 48 cargo vessels of all types and 34 small craft; probably sunk, 21 cargo ships of all types, two escort vessels, two mineswepers, two tankers, 71 small craft; damaged, 58 cargo ships, all types, one large troop transport and one tanker. U. S. plane losses Oct. 11 totaled 43. There were additional bad tidings for Tokio in Navy Secretary Forrestals Washington announce-, ment of the sinking of 32 addi-j tional Japanese vessels, including seven warships, by American sub-j marines. Since the start of the war the underscas fighters have accounted for 956 ships sunk,' probably sunk or damaged. During the last four and a half months, Forrestal said, the American Third and Fifth Fleets have destroyed 3,080 Japanese planes, lie credited 905 surface ships sunk or damaged to navy fliers and warship gunners of those fleets. The secretary declared ''fcr! many months Japanese naval: strength has been at bay and; eventually it must stand and fight." I Admiral Nimitz reported the outflanking of Important Yap island in the western Pacific, j U. S. forces took Ngulu atoll,! western Carolines, Oct. 15. There was slight opposition.

I call on all able bodied men to fight." ALREADY IX ACTION' Frontline dispatches indicate that this "people's army" already has seen action on the western German frontier where American troops invaded the reich. The dispatches have told how civilians led Americans into ambushes, directed them to mine-strewn streets and sniped at them from the windows of houses waving white flags. It was anticipated here that an authoritative statement on how the Allies plan to deal with the volkssturm would be forthcoming from General Eisenhower's headquarters after a careful scrutiny of the laws of war. It .was recalled that Hitler, in 1940, had said, "civilians who take up arms against German soldiers are no better than murderers, be they priests or bank clerks." On the Russian front, Gen. Ivan D. Petrov's Fourth Ukrainian Army group thrust into Czechoslovakia on a 170-nnile front, capturing seven Carpathian mountain passes and slashing '31 miles across the eastern tip of Czechoslovakia into Transylvania. There Petrov's advance units were at or near full junction with Marshal Rodion Malinovsky's combined Russian and Romanian forces which previously had struck through . Transylvania to the Chechoslovakian border from the south. Moscow remained silent on the East Prussian assault, but the Germans acknowledged terrific air and artillery bombardment along the frontier on a 30-mile front from Schirwindt to Kal-varija, and a major thrust to the border between Schirwindt and Virbalis. apparently aimed at In-sterburg, 37 miles inside East Prussia. Violence of the Russian assaults everywhere was indicated by Moscow reports of 1,435 German tanks and 532 German planes destroyed on all fronts since Oct. 6. Moscow indicated heavy fight ing in Hungary, with the Ger mans apparently determined to hold the communications center of Debrecen at all costs. The battle for Belgrade, capital of Yugoslavia, raged on, with Yugo slav partisans reporting most, oi the city held by them and the Russians in close-quarters fighting against two trapped German divisions. In Italy, the British Eighth Army's advance units were within two miles of the important junction town of Cesena in the southeast corner of the Po valley, while the U. S. Fifth Army engaged in hitter fighting with reinforced German divisions seeking to hold Bologna. The Americans moved forward slightly, capturing Monte Bel-mnnte. British units continued their cleanup of Greece, and the Greek government, headed by Premier George Papandreou, returned to newly-liberated Athens amid tu multuntis cheers of its citizens. British naval units, nieanwhile, seized Scarpanto island, midway between Rhodes and Crete, in the name of the United Nations.

They may look like two daring young men on the flying trapeze. But they're really electric linemen, working fifty feet in the air, with no net underneath. It's tough enough up there on a sunny summer day. It's much -worse on a wet black night. But the job must be done. It's part of giving you good electric service. Fortunately, there are men who have the courage and skill to do it. Just as there are other men who control complicated switchboards in storms and hurricanes, or keep a careful watch on giant turbines, or crawl in hot boilers to make repairs. These folks know what to do because they've been doing it a long time. Men and women grow up in the electric light and power business. It takes years to become a power-plant engineer. Lineman load dispatcher service man almost every job is specialized and technical. All thru last night and as long as the present emergency lasts, linemen, power plant operators, service men and other employes of this company are standing by to keep your electric service going as long as it is humanly possible to do so. In case your service is curtailed please phone 8251 day or night. 4f at at a k .'. ,r -. 1POW CO!PO!AT!ON IN THE m aWTeiff T Mil , I Win. .In an igfrgjililil
