"It seemed to sink immediately.' Williams said, the plane hit the t water about 50 or 75 yards from I his barge and that "something exploded -- H sounded like when you light a skyrocket." He said ·· there later was a "swishing I sound and then an explosion like | ! a big firecracker" before it sunk § beneath the water.. Vernon Royer of Hickman, Ky., t operator of a boat with the barge, '; said he felt the waves slap the boat soon after the crash. When Williams and Foreman V. R.

The present ration on whisky sales is one-fifth of quart during each akernate week. This was a "\vhisk£-less" week. The new ration will go into effect next week when whisky again will be available. The state liquor control commission, in announcing .the reduced rations, said the action was taken because of the dwindling supply of stocks and increased demand. A spokesman for the commission said it was impossible to know at this time what steps would be taken after March 31 lo protect the stocks. Commission officials attributed a considerable portion of the increased demand to the desire of permit holders to make their purchases before a federal tax increase becomes effective March 1, Sales last month 'reduced the inventory from 87,000 cases Jan. 1 to 45,000 cases Jan. 31. Allotments from distilleries also have been reduced. All stores and warehouses will be closed Feb. 28 and 29 to permit inventories to be taken jointly by representatives 'of the federal alcohol tax unit and commission employes, to determine tho amount of excise lax that will be due on the floor stocks, and to permit employes to put into effect the increased prices due lo the tax. "The increase in prices TMarch 1 will be the amount of thr neiv federal tax if effective at that time," a commission- statement said. The tax will amount to ~5 cents a quart on 100 proof whisky. The fifth -or quart available to each permit holder in March may be-purchased in either (he week beginning March 6 or the week beginning _March 20.

The plane was -communicating with the airlines office when it crossed a route marker at Bruin Ark., which notifies the pilot to prepare for landing. It did not make the routing contact with the airport tower lor landing instructions. Officials were unable to advance any probable cause of the crash. J. O. Connor, Memphis station manager, said the coast guard and u. S. engineers were in charge of the search. The engineers sent a barge with a crane to the scene and hoped to raise the plane and bring it to Memphis before removing any bodies. The coast guard reported that drag lines had located part of the plane and preparations were being rn.ride to lift it.

Forced to Convert to Coal jfor RUSSIANS HACK DOWN GERMANS CAUGHTINTRAP Nazis, Refusing to Give Up, Reported Slaughtered Like Sheep BULLETIN London, (IP)--Marshall Premier Joseph Stalin Friday announced the capture of the rail junction of Shepetovka, 45 miles southeast of Rovno and 27 miles east of the old Polish frontier. Shepetovka is on the junction of the Berdichev- Warsaw mainline and the Koro- sten-Taruopol lines. It is an important rail station and a vital link in the German defense system. Moscow, reel army's spearheads thrusting against the steadily diminishing circle of death around nazi forces in the Dnieper bend were hacking German-held salients to pieces Friday and relentlessly cutting down all who refused to surrender. Bed Star, soviet army organ, said the Germans were bciii£ slaughtered like sheep on the open steppes aud declared (he entire garrisons of the villages of .TTakh- nov and Myled had been exterminated as 2 Russian columns isolated them ' from other units retreating toward Korsun. Coming events may prove Korsun one of the bloodiest spots an the eastern front if the nazis continue to fight back and refuse lo give up in the face of sure death. It is a very old town of about 10,000 population. The corridor had now been reduced to a bare 5 miles width and IS miles length and inside were' the remnants ;ot 10 German ,.diyisians,_or between; 100,000 and 15090W .German soldiers .whose slaughter or capture promised to he the greatest single German disaster since Stalingrad. Many inhabitants of Korsun and other towns within the circle have made their way to the soviet lines by night, but the civilian population within the ring of soviet guns was still a problem. Bent on completely wiping out every German, the Russians were forced to use tanks and tommyguns in running down their foe and refrain from using their heavy artillery in a blazing barrage. The indications are that no German officer had been able to .escape the encirclement in the last 48 hours, and it was believed a number of high ranking nazis were still caught within the soviet ring. ' To the south another body of Germans was threatened with encirclement in the Krivoi Rog area by red army thrusts to the north, soutli and east of that mineral center, but the Germans showed no signs of attempting ot get out. Even if they pulled out it would be a race for them to get to Kher- son at the Dnieper's mouth or at Nikolacv before the Russians cut their escape route in their advance westward from Apostolovo. By EDWARD KENNEDY Allied Headquarters, Algiers, W)_German armored units taking advantage of rains and cloudy weather which robbed the British and Americans of their most potent defense, their air force, were reported =.= v ·-:· * if ft ,-;.- ^striking with deadly probing skill Allied Forces Reported in "Tough Spot" By C. It. CUNNINGHAM Allied Headquarters, Algiers, (U.R) --American and British invasion 'orces are "in a tough spot" on the Anzio beachhead, f i g h t i n g with heir backs to the sea against an enveloping ring of G German divisions, eyewitness accounts from he front said Friday. Military observers who have iust returned from the beachhead made »o effort to minimize the gravity of the situation, and warned that the 5th army position iliere could become a liability to the allied high strategy. These sources said the landing has failed to attuin its principal objective -- to divert German troops from the Gustav line and 3nable the main 5th army lo break through at Cassino for a juncture w i t h - t h e invasion forces. The failure to achieve the breakthrough must have been a bitter disappointment to Lt.-Gen. Marie W. Clark, commander of the 5th aiiny, who told guests at his headquarters on the eve of the landing: "Tomorrow is the big day.' We will be fighting very close to Home." Correspondents at headquarters realized for more than a .week that ;the invasion was not foing according to plan, but official explanations issued here gave no indication that the beachhead had been seriously imperiled. Headquarters c o r r e s pendents have received daily "directives" and background information from official spokesmen, but have been forced lo rely on conjecture for a picture of the actual facts. Thursday, for instance, almost the entire weight of the allied Mediterranean air forces, including fortresses and liberators, was thrown in one mass swoop against Boston, (U.PJ--Standard Oil company of New Jersey, one of the nation's largest kerosene and fuel oil distributors, has been forced to convert from oil to coal heat at its New England office here because its ration coupon supply was exhausted.

Warsaw was believed attempting unsuccessfully to shelter at least twice as many fleeing from as far east as Rostov. "Struggling across the endless Russian steppes and fathomless murk through the pitiless icy Russian winter nijchts, the miles-long column of German settlers is fighting and pushing westward," tbe Essener National Zeitung said. forces back into the sea. An aerial barrage of that scope has only been undertaken in the past when the allied ground forces found themselves in a serious position, such as at Salerno and at Kasserine Pass, in Tunisia, when the battle was going against us. The question now being asked is why this was not done before, in view of the frequent and well- publicized warnings that a major German counter attack must be expected. The allied aerial attack has been hampered somewhat by bod weather, which may also hinder tho transport of any troops which Clark may have been planning lo send to the aid of the beachhead forces. But Hie principal question asked by correspondents and observers here is why the initial landings were not exploited lo the hilt. The first spearheads of the landing forces punched their way almost immediately lo within striking distance of (he Appian army of way, the cutting of which would have been one of their obvious initial objectives. The Alban hills, which dominate both the Appian Way and the Via Casilina south of Rome, also would seem lo have been a logical objective. But apparently no determined effort was made lo achieve either one, although German Field Marshal Albert von Kesselring- had withdrawn 3 divisions from the Rome area to the main oth army front and left the beachhead undefended. The explanation advanced by military men is that no commander would stretch .his lines thin in into the northern flank of' Anzio bridgehead Friday. In an action which in itself indicated the seriousness of tho situation which had developed on the front below Rome, the allied command Thursday concentrated virtually every combat plane In the Mediterranean theater, including flying fortresses and liters- lors, into a furious defense of the bridgehead front. But by Friday afternoon the rains had cantelccl out much ot this air support and a dispatch from the area by Kenneth L. Dixon, Associated Press correspondent, said (he Germans took prompt advantage of the freer hand given them by the conditions. ( I n Washington President Roosevelt said a very tense situation prevailed und that the allies were praying for good weather to aid sea and air operations.) The powerful force \yhich less than 3 weeks ago seized a wedge of const and thrust a surprise spearhead into the German flank had become besieged, ringed by superior numbers and holding an open coastal plain with the aid of hundreds of massed guns. These guns, Irained to fire in "timed blasts" with devastating and almost instantaneous effect on given targets, were credited in correspondents' dispatches with having arrested .the German attacks at least one 'point,·tat tfc*v Germans were exploiting " ' growing numbers, and least 5-fulITHvSfons . . gade in line to throw into aa aH- out assault. ' " - '··'--' ; There was no confirmation here, however, on the German high command's claim that Carroceto (ApriliaX 10 miles north of Anzio, already had been entered by the nazis. The latest information here was that, the allies still were fighting north of that place. . The official communique spoke o[ heavy fighting around a factory building which is located just northwest ol a key junction. It apparently has been serving a repeating role as the anchor point for defenses of both sides of the shifting struggle in t h a t sector. . The use of tanks as artillery gives them an additional role in the landing area. Both the allies and the nazis'have been working tanks into infantry spearhead tasks since the first contact was made after the invasion. The nazis now are adapting them to hit-run tactics on a smaller scale, but similar to those ot the huge railroad gun which the Germans have been sneaking within range to harry shipping in Anzio bay whenever possible.
