"Now the Russians were within striking distance of Likhaya, the junction of the Rostov-Moscow railroad, the line extending cast- ward fo Stalingrad, and the line running westward to a rich industrial and mining area. The Germans had heavily fortified their Kalitva river line '30 miles east of the Rostov-Moscow railroad. An irresistible wedge of Russian tanks, under a barrage by massed guns and followed by the infantry and cavalry, smashed the German lino at Litvinovka, 28 miles southeast of Glubovkaya, dispatches to the army newspaper Red Star said. * * * , Russia had kept silent for days while the Germans fought (o hold their river line.

The gigantic operation, perfectly timed, enabled Col. Gen. Konstantin Kokossbviski, commanding the Don front, to effect a wheeling movement southward, aiming at ·the envelopment of the German forces at the western end ot the lower Don area. Rokossovsky's success in executing this difficult movement was attested by the fact that he is now a colonel-general. Premier Joset Stalin, supreme commander, announced his rank, from Saturday.

Flynn Judge Will Decide If New Jury Must Be Chosen Affidavits Charge 2 Women Jurors With' Deceit and Perjury FREDERICK C. OTJOIA.V H O L L Y W O O D , (U.PJ--Three housewives who found themselves ejected as jurors in the statutory rape trial of Errol Flynn left him biting his fingernails Saturday and wondering how much longer he'd have to sit in court listening to two teen-age girls tell unprintable tales about him. if. The women charged two others, who were selected as jurors, with deceit and perjury in their anxiety to hear the ease of movie hero Flynn. The judge will consider their accusations Monday and decide whether a new jury will have to be chosen and the testimony repeated. While 17 year old Betty Hansen was telling of a night with rlynn in a Bel Air bedroom, the Hesdames Emily Blue, Gussie ?owe and Harriet Ponder were ;iUin£ in a nearby office talking iver the trial and the reasons for he opposing attorneys excusing hem from service. What they louldn't understand was why two ithcr women were accepted. They )iit on their bonnets, trooped to he district attorney's office and lied affidavits charging perjury against Miss Elaine Forbes and Mrs. Lorene Boehm. The only trouble seemed to be that the housewifely trio couldn't ;et its stories to agree about Miss Forbes, the smartly dressed secretary to a radio executive. Mrs. Rowe said Miss Forbes wanted to acquit Flynn and said so before she was made a juror^ Mrs. Ponder said she wanted to convict him. "I just must get on that jury." Sirs, Roive quoted Miss Forbes, adding that she'd reported illness to tecp from bein? a juror in other cases pending and that she'd said she could not stand it if Flynn were sent to prison. ' * * * Mrs. Blue's statement agreed in every detail with that of Mrs Rowe, but Mrs. Ponder heard something entirely diftercnt. "Miss Forbes said to me scvera times." she said. " 'if we get on the Flynn jury, we will fix him good.'" Mrs. Ponder added that youn^i Mrs. Bochm had seemed excited about the prospect of seeing Flynn face-to-facc and had invited her to go downstairs for a look. "I went along to the floor below," Mrs. Ponder continued, "but I didn't go all the way. Mrs. Bochm joined the crowd around Mr. Flynn and when she came back, she said: " 'I am for Errol Flynn in a big way.' " Harintr 1 ' filed these charges the three housewives went on home. Flynn's trial was droning alonjr with testimony concerning what Flynn and Miss Han- scn, the blond waitress, were doing behind a locked bathroom door. Prosecutor Thomas Cochran received the affidavits. glanced through them and asked for a mistrial. Judse Leslie E. Still adjourned court at once and Flynn asked: "What docs this mean?" his attorneys explained and he cracked: "I don't mind rooters in the jury box, but they ought to keep their mouths shut." Jerry Gicslcr, his lawyer, called the development a blow and an injustice to Flynn. "Of course we do not want to proceed if there are any prejudiced jurors on the panel," he said, "but it is very unfair of them to have forced him to go half way through the trial and then make him go through it all over again."

(/P)--Twelve American airacobra fighter planes, part of a flight of more than 60 war craft buffeted by storms on tlight toward the Mediterranean iattle zone, were in Portuguese lands Saturday after forced landings on the soil of this neutral na- on. Eleven of the planes landed at .he Lisbon airport on the Tagus river Friday and their crews surrendered to the authorities. Crews and planes were expected to be interned. The twelfth plane was rcportec to have landed at Aveiro, in northern Portugal. (The Berlin radio, heard in London, said a twin-motored "An- :lo-Ameriean" plane had been 'orced down near La Linea, Spain ust outside the British stronghold of Gibraltar. The crew, the broadcast said, was British.) 9 ARE KILLED IN PLANE CRASH Army Bomber Smashes Up in Sagebrush Area BOISE, Idaho, (/P)--An arms bomber crashed near Kuna Fri day at midnight, killing "abou nine officers and men," Gowen field Public Relations Office Capt.

The essence of this art is that by letting the adversary take the initiative, and by giving way and simulating defeat, the adversary may be lulled into dropping his guard: then, when the Adversary has advanced too far and is off balance, he is destroyed by a quick recovery and a lightning attack where he is weakest." In the purely military field. Grew said, there is little danger now that the Japanese will be able to fool this country's armed forces with some military application of those principles.

Wells T HE giant lash of Europe's soul is now cutting the cowardly hide of every nazi who has been lashing the helpless forms of subjugated people. Nazi-' philosophy would not recognize the spiritual. The Germans have boasted that, having once broken the centers of armed resistance in Europe, they would easily organize the new-order upon the prostrate bodies of subjugated people. Their plan allowed no place for spiritual resistance. In the subjugation of France for instance they made little effort to win the good will of the people; What did that matter when the French were conquered and disarmed? But inside information from Germany reveals that today Hitler is bewildered and frantic over his failure to effect any peaceful normalcy in occupied countries. In France and elsewhere it is the nazis themselves who are jittery instead of their prisoners. Every day the nazis are feeling more and more the stinging lash of an outraged world conscience. The spiritual life they ignored is becoming a major factor in their undoing. north - fications country. and difficult swampy Recent rains have in- Rome Reports British Open Desert Drive By UNITED PRESS There was a sharp increase in patrol activity in the desert east of Tripoli Saturday and at] signs indicated an early attempt on the part of the British eighth army to deliver a knockout punch against the Afrika korps. Radio Rome said the British attack already had started and claimed a victory in the early stages of the fighting. The British were repulsed and 35 of their tanks were destroyed, the Italians claimed, but there was no confirmation from allied sources that a full-scale assault was under way. A middle eastern command communique issued at Cairo said casualties had been inflicted on the Afrika korps in several sectors as creased the difficulties of the allied forces seeking to clear Papua of the remnants of a Japanese army which once totaled 15,000 men. Some 150 miles to the northwest of Mubo, south and inland from Salamaua in n o r t h e a s t New Guinea, allied forces have completed a three-day raid on Japanese positions during which an enemy headquarters post, a radio station and supply dumps were destroyed, the communique said. Heavy casualties have been inflicted on the Japanese there, it was ,said. At least 116 were reported killed in this raid in Friday's communique. * * * Allied air forces meanwhile continued to attack the remain- in? Japanese positions in New Guinea and spread out in a widening circle over Japanese footholds in the southwest Pacific. The enemy airdromes at Ma- danr and Finschhafcn and a supply dump at Lae were the targets in New Guinea Friday, the communique reported. * * * One Japanese bomber attacked Port Moresby under cover of darkness, but no damage was caused, the bulletin added. A unit ot allied medium bombers bombed another Japanese airfield on Matkus island of the Tani- bar group north of Darwin. Australia. A heavy bomber on armed reconnaissance shot down one of two Japanese fighters which attacked it over Celebes in the Dutch East Indies. An enemy merchant ship was bombed at Cape Sena.
