Oct. 5.—(AP) — Rcichsfuchrer Hitler went in | triumph today to Warsaw, Poland's fallen capital, and, inspected the Nazi forces which effected the city's surrender. Adolf Hitter again—as many times past—today kept Europe on the anxious .seat about his intentions toward continued war. The German fuehrer is to address the Reichstag Wednesday In a speech possibly outlining peace terms. Whether the basis for ending hostilities would be suggested or whether such terms would be acceptable to the British-French allies was conjectural. Warfare on the battlefields, however, was at a minimum. On the western front, a French communique .said there were "intermittent artillery actions." A German communique called the artillery fire "minor" and added there was "scouting plane activity." On the eastern front, Germany said mopping up continued against "shattered remnants of Polish troops" in conquered Poland.

Germans pinned their hopes for peace on Hitler's speech. Observers seeking a hint of what he will say knew the fuehrer was dissatisfied with the attitudes indicated by Prime Minister Chamberlain and Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax in speeches this week. The Nazi attitude is that war on the is finished and that conflict in the west never has started in earnest. Chamberlain said Tuesday, however, that no "mere assurances" from the Hitler regime would be sufficient guarantee for the Allies to make peace.

New York Pitcher Allows But Two Hits and Gets Eight Strikeouts Over Cincinnati Reds YANKEE STADIUM, NEW YORK, Oct. 5.—(/P>—Giving one of the finest pitching exhibitions in World Series history, Marcellus Monte Pearson held the Cincinnati Reds to two singles today to give the New York Yankees their second straight triumph by a 4 to 0 score. For seven and one-third Innings Pearson was on his way to the first no-hit game evet pitched in 'baseball's biggest spectacle, but Ernie (Schnozzle) Lombard! stabbed a sharp liner directly over second base to break this streak and in the ninth Bill Werber shot another bounder through shortstop for the Reds' second safety. Even so Pearson, who had a no-hitter last year against the Cleveland Indians on Aug. 27, tied a series record held by Herb Pennock since 1927 for going 7% consecutive innings without yielding a hit.
