The second makes the injurin" of a dog "by auto or otherwise" punishable also by S100 or 90 days unless the culprit assists the animal and reports the injury to the district police. ; A third calls for $300 or 90 days lor dog poisoners.

Australia, (U.H) --Gen, Douglas MacArthur announced Thursday allied losses in .he victorious Papuan New Guinea :ampaign amounted to less than half those o£ the Japanese forces "It will be recalled that Japanese Papuan forces were estimated at around 15,000, with some probably escaping or being evacuated," an army spokesman said. An accurate count of Japanese losses probably can never be made." . / It is known that sickness accounted for a considerable number of allied casualties. Allied planes raided the Japanese in many sectors on Wednesday, including a smash at supply depots in the Lac area, on the Huon gulf, for the 15tli successive day. Thc other raids were: Single iterators, in separate attacks, bombed airdromes at Gasmafa. on New Britain, and at Finschhafcn, n the Salamaua area: A-20 havoc ight bombers strafed Mubo vjl- age area, 12 miles south of Salamaua: beaufighters swept coast between Cape Wart Hunt and Salamaua: Hudson patrol bombers raided Kai island, 400 miles north of Port Darwin, while other ludsons attacked shipping at Jobo. on Arloe island, 175 miles to the cast. Three Japanese bombers raided Port Moresby airdromes from Hfih altitudes early Wednesday with minor damage, and one Japanese plane was crippled by an allied interceptor. A small allied marchantman was recently bombed and sunk V the Japanese off Wessel island n the Gulf of Carpentaria.

KEEMLE United Press War Analyst In the wake of the "unconditional surrender" conference of President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill the Russians are stepping up their smashing offensive at a pace wftjch threatens the Germans with military disaster at several points on the long eastern front. j~«iw · Ther ^ s f- ians are writiD K the final, grim chapter to the historic siege of Stalingrad. It is ending in a staggering defeat for German arms. Of an estimated 220,000 axis* troops which started the assault, AIR YA LISTENIN? Another Drama of "The Commandos" British night-raiders and Russian guerillas spring an un- pleasant-sui-prise on a nazi garrison in occupied Poland, during Thursday night's "The Commandos," on KGLO at 8 «* '* # V V * # O V I o o k Thrt rlrtlmnH* *·-.,* r _ fewer than 5,000 remain in the field. The remnants are disorganized, cut off from supplies, and in some c a s e s without m m u 'n it i o n . T h o s e w h o continue t o f i g h t a r e s p u r r e d into hopeless resistance by Germ a n officers who are blindly f o l i o w - ing Hitler's order to die rather than surrender. KEEMLE The axis losses in men and equipment at Stalingrad are only part of the picture. According to the soviet army organ Red Star, 102 axis divisions have been routed or knocked out ot action since the Russian offensive started a little more than two months ago. The axis was estimated by Josef Stalin to have had 1 240 divisions when the offensive started. # * * The Russians now present a serious threat to the main German base »t Kharkov, in the Ukraine; to Rostov, at the entrance to the Caucasus, and to the German army in the Caucasus. * * * The red army is closing in on Rostov from north, east and south, if Hostov is taken, there is a prospect that the German army in the Caucasus, originally estimated at about 185,000 men may be cut off to suffer the same fate as the army at Stalingrad. In the area to the north of Rostov, the Russians are close to Voroshilovgrad .and are driving directly toward Kharkov. North of Kharkov, they have cleaned out Voronezh and are headed for Kursk. Success of these two drives might lead to encirclement ot Kharkov should the frontal drive fail. The deliberations at Casablanca had a direct bearing on these Russian successes. The allied leaders decided on all possible aid to Russia, both military and material. The announcement disclosed a determination to hit the axis at various points to relieve the pressure on Russia and it is to be assumed that these attacks will not be long in coming * * * As to material aid. it it reported from,London that a bit improvement has been made in the northern supply route to Russia. Convoys are better protected and losses have been reduced sharply. The Russians themselves are aiding In this and reported a few days ato that their dive bombers and torpedo planes had sunk 10 snips In an enemy naval force # * * The report that Ihe Russians have entered the Finnish Arctic port of Petsamo has not been confirmed, but it does not sound impossible. The Russians may not be planning an invasion of northern Norway as previously reported, but it is quite possible that they want the port to strengthen further the defense of the supply lines. Errol Flynn Denies AH of Charges Made by Two Girls Declares He Scarcely Met Peggy Hansen at Fred McEvoy's Party HOLLYWOOD, Cal..

He wore dark brown suit, with shadows under his eyes to match. "Every statement made about me by this witness was false" he sajd of Miss Hanson's charges Then he described the tennis party given by McEvoy and told how the guests gathered in the house for drinks before dinner. He said it was an informal party and that he'd noticed Miss Hansen, but had not been introduced to her. "The first time I ever paid any attention to her," he continued under questioning of his attorney Jerry Gieslcr, "was when she came over and sat on the arm of my chair. I paid, no particular attention to that because all the other chairs were occupied. * *' # . "But she began to slide down into the seat. Soon It became a Iiule uncomfortable, she Sept on sliding. And it became quite uncomfortable." * * * Flynn said Miss Hanscn's sliding occupied about 10 minutes "Didn't you talk to her?" asked Criesler. "I believe," said Flynn, "that I aid get the impression she was Nebraska, she also told me like to visit the studio some time and she asked me what I was drinking. I told her a martini.

It looked as though sli e were about to get sick. "This was right after the soup. So Mr. McEvoy asked me if I would take her into the music room so she could lie down on the divan. "I did so. I was back at the table m 30 seconds." After dinner Flynn said lie and the host adjourned to the sun room where they spent about halt an hour, drinking and chatting. * * * "I believe I heard some music from the other room. Anyhow I did go out the back door to get my tennis racquet which I'd left by the pool and then I went home. * * ¥ "Didn't you say goodbye to everybody. including Miss Hanson?" asked Gieslcr. -Yes. I said goodbye to them all. but I paid rto attention to her.'' "Did you kiss her?" Gieslcr asked. Flynn said he didn't. Gieslcr continued: "Did she kiss you then?" ' "I don't know." Flynn said. ''She sort of seemed to hang on to me and if she,hissed me it must have been where I wouldn't notice it." Flynn denied going upstairs or telling Miss'Hansen that he intended to take her up. His attorney: then asked' him a series of short questions.' These questions Flynn answered with a staccato: "No-no-no-no." "But you did'sit here in this court and hear Miss Hansen's statements?" Flynn said he had listened carefully. "Were they true or false'"' "They were false," Flynn replied. Giesler then stood with feet wide apart in the center of the courtroom and demanded in a loud voice whether Flynn had had intimacies with either Betty or Peggy. Flynn shouted: "No, I did not" to each question. The portly Giesler turned slow- Jy to the prosecution lawyers and with elaborate politeness said"You may have the witness.' 1 Associate Prosecutor John Hop- Kins began the cross examination with questions about Flynn's birth m Tasmania, his naturalization as an American citizen, and his friendship with / the stuntman. ^i3.0O K I L O C Y C L E S Thursday P.
