' Selection of the convention time and place was made by the party's national committee after It had adopted a resolution urcinc the enactment of federal and state laws to facilitate absentee voting by members of the armed forces. · Chicago- won the convention with a ?75,000 bid after William Stern, North Dakota committeeman, made his quadrennial humorous bid to take the convention to Fargo, N. Dak. Referring to an incident at the 1940 democratic convention here, Henry A. Wise of Virginia asked if a basement microphone connected with the convention hal speaker system was to be made available. William S. Linnell of Maine moved- that the convention be held'the week of June 25 but when National Chairman Harrison Spangler pointed out that June : 25 was a Sunday the official opening date was made June 26, Monday. The date and site were decided by voice votes. The national committee gave unanimous approval'to a resolution drafted by a committee headed by J. Russel Spraiue of New York recommending legislation which would maintain "integrity of the ballot." , ·'Millions of young men and women of our country, mostly of voting age, are serving in the armed forces," the resolution-said, "the republican parly wants them to vote." . - · "Therefore, be it resolved," the resolution' continued, "that the Discharged Guard Says He Was Given '86 Gun; Warden's Son Used His Gun to Hunt Anamosa; llf)--K. E. Milsap, W. J. McNamara and Donald O. swansoh, discharged guards at the men's reformatory here, charged Tuesday that Shift Capt. Dan E. Beam issued the order to open the wagon gate through which 4 con-* : ---- victs escaped. New Year's day. (The convicts took Beam and Deputy Warden L,. J. Womachka as hostages). The.men said they would take republican recoflnmendt' national committee to: all.- . legislative :, agencies having junsolctidnVjhe. ' ' ' ^ - their case to Gov. B. B. Hieken- looper. '·Beam ordered the g a t e openeti," McNamara said. "He gave the order I twice, shouting it the 2nd time." · All 3 said they had not keen given an order, either written or verbally, that the gate was -not to be opened to convicts carrying hostages under any circumstances. "Our orders were to' obey our superiors; and not to question an order," McNamara said.' Warden Foss Davis pointed out none of the men accused Beam.of issuing the order in their statements to the board of control or to him. The men said the accusation svas made to both Davis and the board. - ; In announcing dismissal of the 3 guards Monday, Gov. B. B. Hiekenlooper quoted a letter,by Warden Davis to the board of control in which it was stated that the guards were discharged ,for violating orders that they never were to open both the inner and outer gates at the same time, and that no gates ever were to be opened to convicls carrying hostages, even if the hostage was the warden himself. "As far as- we were concerned," Millsap said, "we weren't letting out any hostages. We thought Womachka was sick and was being rushed to the hospital. No one warned us that a break was taking place, despite ~ the fact the turnkey's office had been warned ty a guard from the deputy's office and by another guard. Warden Davis said the guard who called from the deputy's office did not make himself clear. Millsap also charged his . 12- gauge pump gun with which he is usually equipped, was taken from him New.Years day and that he was given an 1886 model 10-gauge lever action gun in its place. "Warden. Davis'^son used the 12 gauge gun to hunt,rabbits New Yearns, day,"- Millsay .said. ."I saw h^ walking .up,.the- tracks -with the framework of the federal and the -several .state-'..'constitutions which jwill assure to bur men and "women in the armed services the fullest and most complete opportunity to vote, being sure that the integrity of the ballot is · maintained." The committee adopted a 2nd resolution looking to post-war protection of American markets against free ' importation of "unwanted" American-lid goods on foreign shores. Offered by Mason Owlett, Pennsylvania committeemah, the resolution, suggested that the party's post-war advisory council' consider recommending legislation to prevent what he called "shady" arid "racketeering" deals . in surplus goods which followed the last war and hurt American producers. " Such "distress merchandise," he said, amounted to billions of dollars. - ;^en^tr N ''MeN»niiftaaaia-v^heT--,gaw~.tte. Nazi Blockade Runner Was Camouflaged Rib de Janeiro, (/P)--A German blockade runner sunk last week in the south Atlantic was camouflaged and flew .the Argentine flag, the newspaper O.Globosaid 1 Tuesday,, and had A r g e n t i n e s among its crew members.- · -. .(It is customary for German blockade runners to fly the flag of a neutral country in efforts to ward off attack. Use of crew members from a neutral country on such boats is contrary to international law. In the role of a neutral nation Argentina would have'no reason to camouflage boats under its flag.) . O Globo, in a dispatch from Recife, said 11 Argentines were among crew members landed in Brazil after the blockade runnci sank. It said the Argentines were mostly'of adult age while German crew members were mostly youngsters. ' ' ' ' The same paper reported Monday that the ship had been scuttled by her crew Jan. 3'during a chase by U. S. and Brazilian nava and air forces, going down between Ascension island and the African' coast. It added that 145 crewmen had been interned in a camp in north eastern Brazil. An official an nouncement .last Saturday had said that the ship was sunk by the pursuers while carrying con- .traband from Japan to Germany No comment on the report wa: available immediately from off! cials in Argentina, the only one o the South American nations whicl has not broken relations with the youth returned to the prison with the gun and a rabbit,- later- ux the afternoon.' V. · - 3 .-:.''. ' " .' ; Warden Davis verified that the mn had been j used by his son. "When the warden called us into his office to dismiss us Monday noon," Millsay said, "he told us that: we were the goats." Both- McNamara and. Swanson e rifled the remark and Davis vould neither deny or affirm he ad made' it. The men also charged that their .epositiohs taken by board mem- er Dave .McCreery and Warden 3avis were accurate as far as they vent,- but "they didn't tell the r hole story." .They also said reformatory guards receive-no instructions in use or care of guns and ho target practice because there is no iring range. This -information was con- Irmed by Warden Davis. When asked if it is the assumption guards know how to handle guns they are issued, the warden answered:. "Tex." The late Warden Glenn Haynes established compulsory monthly target practice for guards at the state penitentiary. · It has been, continued under Warden Percy A. Lainson.- Guards there must maintain an estab- ished mark with ammunition furnished by the state, according to Deputy Wai-den J. E. Bennett. Swanson, a penitentiary guard for 6 years before coming here, said all the gun skill he. had acquired was at Fort Madison. Millsap, an Anamosa guard for 12 years, and McNamara, for 8, said they had never been instructed in ;un use or care, although they knew something about guns. A gun club was organized by guards at Anamosa s o m a y e a r s ago, they said, but memberships were S2 for ammunition? and it soon broke up for want of members. Swanson said he.recently broke open a gun issued to him and found the shells inside corroded, and that he cleaned it as best he could. . ' ' The'dismissed guards insisted they were not bringing their charges to get their jobs back. Millsap and McNamara said they would not return under anv conditions but that they felt the people had-a right to know more about what happened.

The U.S. BOMBERS BLAST NAZIS Air Battle in Central Germany Is Reported L o n d o n , (U.R)--An hour-long parade of giant American planes streamed into axis Europe Tues day and radio Berlin reportec that swarms of American heavj bombers and nazi fighters wer locked in a great air battle ove central Germany. The big. bombers thunderec across the channel in waves, in daylight follow-up to the RAF' mosquito attack on Berlin Mon day night. A number of radio stations Holland and Germany immediate ly fell silent and Berlin broadens a Transocean news agency dispatch that American 4-motored planes attacked targets in central Germany at noon. The luftwaffe, conspicuously absent during the heavy allied raids on the French invasion coast in recent weeks, rose in strength to meet the American bombers, according to Transocean, which said "heavy losses" were inflicted on the raiders. Simultaneously with Ihe apparent resumption of the 8th U. S. air force's assault on the continent after a 3-day rest, strong formations of medium bombers and fighters attacked the French invasion coast. The fortress and liberators last raided Europe-Friday, when they blasted unidentified targets in southwest Germany. Nazi broadcasts said the twin Rhineland chemical cities of Mannheim and Lndwigshafen were hit. ' Twin-engined British mosquitoes resumed the British offensive against Berlin with a nuisance raid Monday night as authoritative air ministry sources estimated that the campaign to knock the nazi capital out of the war had been 40 per cent completed. The mosquito raid may have been a prelude in the nature of a reconnaissance attack to new block-buster assaults on Berlin, last hit by British heavy bombers early on the mornings of Jan. 1 and 2. Mosquitoes last attacked Berlin Jan. 5. main railway line. To the rear, the second .Ukraine army of Gen. Ivan S. Koiiev fought within 15 miles of the Dnieper bend rail center of Smela. after wiping out 8,000 nails encircled north of Kirovo- grad. (The German high command declared the Soviets had launched new attack from their bridgc- ead north of Kerch in the Crimea, with fighting still continu- ng. There was no soviet confirmation. Berlin also said fighting aged all day Monday for posses- ion of Sarny, rail city 35 miles vithin old Poland.) The first Ukraine army hourly ricreased the threat of severing tie Odessa-Warsaw railway, a isaster for the" Germans that vould throw them back upon Rumania for supplies and use of rail- vays and highways, and put the liggest burden yet upon that sal- ·llile nation. The danger to the Germans in he Smela gap also ' mounted iteadily. The German formations which were annihilated were the remnants of 3 tank divisions, 1 infantry division and a motorized division--totaling perhaps 50,000 men. Only a few members of these units were said to have escaped :he trap. Gen. Nikolai V a t u tin's 1st Ukraine army, meanwhile, battling Forward on General Konev's right, slashed 2 branch lines feeding the Odessa-Warsaw railway and captured Bereznoe and Lud- Tipol, 21 and 37 miles respectively southeast ·( Sarny (35 miles inside «W Poland). jesting;., Mondays "a'dvarices a Russian; : - 'cpmmurSgffe'^ "sia id" - · -that more than :12,000 Germans were slain during- the day.' -· · In addition to the 8,000 wiped out; by Konev's forces, Vatutin's veterans accounted for 4,000 more as they drove toward Sarny. Advance, units'of'the'red army were reported 5 miles east of Sarny Monday. * (Berlin dispatches to Stockholm newspapers said the Germans had evacuated Sarny and that Vatu- tin's army is threatening to encircle Rovno, another rail junction 50 miles to the southwest.) Vatutin's left wing, operating about 70 miles to the west of Konev's army, captured Vorono- vitsa and Nemirov in a drive for Vinnitsa and the Warsaw-Odessa railway.
