Kharkovsky, Mayorsky and Kurmoyarsky in that region both widened the front of advance guards and protected them while other units mopped up German detachments in the rear. The midnight communique told of the occupation of several more unspecified localities in the lower Don area but spoke freely of long and bitter fighting against counterattacking axis troops and reserves attempting, the Russians said, to stem the soviet advance at all costs. ., (The German radio, heard in London, reported the German air force in a new burst of activity between Lake Ilmen and Lake Ladoga--the Leningrad front--and around Velikic Luki Tuesday. (The Berlin broadcast claimed lliat 42 Russian planes were downed and that a renewed Russian attack at Velikie L u k i ' h a d been repulsed.

Gunners on Hornet Got 59 of 64 Planes PHILADELPHIA, (.P) -- G u n- ners aboard the aircraft carrier Hornet shot down "approximately 59 of the 64 Japanese planes'' that attacked her before the order was given to abandon ship, members of her crew revealed. Two shattered enemy planes crashed on her decks, the seamen said in statements released by the fourth naval district. * * ¥ One exploded on the flisht : .deck near the bridge, "starting a furious fire," and the other dived under the flight deck into "a row of officers' staterooms, its controls shot away as it at. tempted to swerve alter launch. ing a torpedo. * * * · The Hornet was identified by the navy as the carrier previously announced as lost in the battle o£ the S a n t a Cruz islands l a s t Oct. 26. . . , . The story of her fighting' death was told by Gunner's Mate AJvin Grahn, of Roseau, Minn., and fellow crewmen now in the navy yard base. The attacking planes came in two waves, Grahn said, while the Hornet's attack planes and other units of a U. S. task force were defeating a .Tap force northeast of Guadalcanal. if. if. ^ "Our euns were all manned and ready." Grahn related. "It ·was just like the pause before a football game when everyone is listening for the referee's whistle for the kickoff. And suddenly a shout: 'Here they come, commence firing.' * * ··* . "Some nf us had never fired at enemy plans a n d . t h e boys were making bets on the chances of getting a crack at dive bombers and torpedo planes. Within seven or eight minutes, we had shot down 50 of the 64 which came over in the first attack." '. The first wave, however, scored repeated hits and other vessels in the American force ranged alongside her with fire hoses going to help put out the fire. Then the second combined dive bomber-torpedo plane attack began, Grahn related. %. at. ic. "\ counted six torpedo planes and four dive bombers and we shot down at] the torpedo planc.s and only one bomlcr got away," he added. "The shooting was so thick and fast,''the fourth naval district said, "that not all the Hornet's men could keep track of it as well as Grahn.'' Joe Lassiler, 19, aviation machinist's mate of AshcviUe. N.

WLB TO INCREASE REGIONAL UNITS Speedup in Handling of Cases Is Sought WASHINGTON, W)--The war labor board, it was learned Wednesday, has decided on a drastic reorganization of procedure calling for the creation of 12 to 14 regional boards with power to rule finally in labor disputes and voluntary wage and salary agreements. The regional boards will be set up in the 10 cities in which the WLB now has regional offices, with two others located in Detroit and Seattle. Two more will be established later. Details of the plan probably will be announced in a week and the boards will start functioning as quickly as the necessary personnel can be obtained and the machinery organized. A growing backlog of cases' and complaints of delay which' sometimes manifest themselves in "quickie" work stoppages led the board to decide on this virtual all-out decentralization and delegation of authority. Previously the WLB had planned to establish 30 or more permanent panels throughout the country and to give certain review powers to the existing regional advisory boards, but found Lhat plan was not far-reaching enough to keep abreast of the heavy case load. Instead, these advisory boards will be reconstituted into regional war labor boards. The regional boards will be almost exact counter parts of the WLB in Washington. They will have 12 members each, four representing ndustry, four labor, and four public members. It is possible, lowever, that only half that num- jer will serve on a full-time basis at first. The present regional director in each case will become one of the public members as well as chairman. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Ali music which Shows Japs Losing Fight of Production By GLENN BABB War News Interpreter New evidence comes Irom Tokio :hat General Tojo and his colleagues arc struggling against the soul-chilling realization that Japan is losing the battle' ol production, a contest in which the fanatical fighting code of'the Samurai is 1 of little avail. Once move they have invoked the awful prestige of the emperor in an appeal to war workers to increase output. ' * . " * · * ' " . ' - ' - · The Tokio radio announces that within a few days aides-decamp divested with special powers will begin a series of (ours of the chief industrial areas to make the workers feel hat the son of heaven is watching them. If. If U. Now this may strike Americans as absurd, but it !ias p a serious scaring on the course of the war. Invocation if the imperial prestige is somcthing'not undertaken lightly by a Japanese government, and this is the fourth time within a few weeks that the people have been jjivcn assurance of the emperor's concern over the way the war is going. Early in December Hirohilo made a solemn pilgrimage to the sun goddess' shrine at Ise to pray for her aid. A few days later he received ill audience 380 leaders of the empire's industry and economic interests. Only last week he watched a parade of war workers during the annual new year imperial military review. Tuesday's announcement very ikely is the hish command's reaction to President Roosevelt's message to congress of last Thursday, especially those crushing figures ot 1942 war production, probably tenfold 'Japan's capacity in the most vital categories. Take for example the item of ships. We launched 8,030,000 tons ill 1S42 and are just gelling into the stride that will produce double that tremendous tonnage in 1943. Now Japan needs ships as badly as we do, for without them she can not hope to hold the riches of the Indies for which she took the gamble of Avar apainst the United Stales. But- with her shipyards mobilized (o the utmost she can not hope to produce in a year more than one-tenth the American output for last year and by the end of this year the proportion will be nearer 20 to I. * V- V Probably the Japanese masses ire not permitted to know the li-tilh .-tbout American production. Enough for them to know that the emperor calls on them for greater effort in their grimy factories, where the work week already is around 70 hours But their lenders know all about those tremendous figures recited by the president and they probably nre convinced by now of their truth. The frequent calls on the erri- pcror show that Tojo and his fel- .lo\vs are fully ns worried about the home front--perhaps more so-than about the loss of their New Guinea footholds, the steady growth of American power in the Solomons or the British invasion of Burma, the three points on the rim of their co-prosperity sphere where the rising striking power of the united nations is making itself felt.

School Nurse on KGLO Forum Actor Ert'ol Flynn (center) confers with his lawyers as he goes to trial in Los An geles on charges of attacking two 'teen-aged girls. MOSTLY WOMEN * ON FLYNN JURY Ratio Will Likely Be 9-3 in Attack Case By FREDERICK C. OTHMAN HOLLYWOOD, (UR) -- Women, who have been Errol Flynn's greatest fans, who have 'written him more than 16,000 letters of sympathy, a n d w h o cluster around him daily in court, apparently will have most of the say in deciding whether he is guilty ot the statutory rape of *.wo teen-age girls. When the third day of his trial opened Wednesday morning, there were nine women and three men seated temporarily in the jurors' box. This ratio between the sexes will remain' about the same -- if Flynn's lawyers have their way --when the jury is confirmed, probably late Wednesday. Apparently the only females in Judge Leslie E. Still's courtroom who did not look upon the wavy- iiaired Flynn with bland eye were his accusers, 16 year old Peggy Miss Nan Click, Mason City school nurse, will speak on the KGLO Forum Wednesday evening at G:30. Her topic will be; "The N'ursins Service." DR. KELLY AND WIFE SUCCUMB Physician Was World Famous for Achievement BALTIMORE, (U.PJ--Dr. Howard A. Kelly, eminent surgeon and radiologist, and his wife died Wednesday in adjoining rooms al Union Memorial hospital. Mrs. Kelly's death came rive hours after that of her husband, who was the last of the four great physicians who made John Hopkins a world famcc! medical school. - Neither was aware that the other was critically ill. They were married in 18S9 in Danzig while each was making a European tour. Mrs. Kelly was the former Lctitia Bredow. The couple is survived by five sons and four daughters. Dr. Kelly, who would have been 85 on Jan. 20, joined the staff of Johns Hopkins in 1883 and retired as professor-emeritus in gynecology in 1913. With Sir William Osier, Dr. William S. Halstead and Dr. William H. Welch, he brought Johns Hopkins to the top rank among the world's medical schools. He was the last ot the "big four'' to die.

They sat behind him with their police woman escorts and stared at the back of his neck, while he scribbled notes about the jurors in a handsome red leather diary. He said his insurance agent sent the volume to him as an appropriate gift. Flyrm's lawyers, headed by the illustrious Jerry Giesler, hinted mysteriously about witnesses who would have much to tell concerning Miss Satterlee's yachting jaunt to Catalina Island with Flynn last year while she was only 15. The lawyers wouldn't name their tcstifyers, but promised they'd startle the jury when the time came. Miss Satterlee charges that Flynn attacked her twice during the voyage; he claims he had a bad cold, a runny nose, and no interest in her except as a partner for photographs taken by Peter Stackpole, cameraman for Life and Time magazines. The first federal census of Australia was taken in 1911, when also the northern territory was taken over by the commonwealth, and compulsory military training was begun. Credit U. S.

The conquest of Fezzan--south- ern Libya--was announced Tuesday in a communique from Brig. Gen. Jacques Leclerc, commander of the fighting French forces that now had advanced nearly 1,000 miles from their home base at Lake Chad.
