Forty persons died in traffic mishaps. Ten were drowned, four Italian City Of Siena Has Fallen To The Allies (By United Trows) The great medieval art center of Sic mi or.' the rond to Florence 'hus fallen to the Allies. Algerian troops of Lieutenant General Mark Clark's Fifth army stormed into the city this morning. And other Allied forces broke open German defenses all across the 100 mile belt of the Italian per.'insula. . The frill of Siena came shortly after Fifth army troops captured the town of Cecina on 'the west coast, after what was officially called one ot the Mtlffe-st battles by the Fifth since the occupation of Rome. These new gains deprive the ro- trenllnjr Naxis of -their last lateral highway before the so-called "Gothic Lino" that runs across Italy from Pisa -to Rimini. Official sources reveal that the Germans had thrown- elements of 10 full divisions or about 300,000 men into the battle to hold.Siena and the Cecina Vivcr line.- But the defenders begun evacuating Siena yesterday under a ylorm. of -shell 'and mortar fire, leaving: only a small rear guard to cover their retreat. As the French troops poured into Siena—an American couple reentered the'city for the. first time since they spent live months of internment there after the United States entered tho war. They were the United Press reporting team— Reynolds and Eleanor Packard. Their eye-witness report of the capture of the city says that Siena was spared the usual crushing- artillery bombardment because of the art treasures it contained. They found the city's 1 historical -monuments about 99 per cent intact, including the famous black and white striped cathedral and the 14 th century clock tower in the main' square. Allied 'gunners handled their big guns carefully in the battle for Ciena. 'And they avoided the center of the city where many ot the priceless treasures arc stored. Elsewhere along the Italian front | —the Allies arc pushing up both coasts toward the big seaports of Livorno and Ancon.i. Above Perugia—the British pushed forward as much as eight miles yesterday to dislodge the Na/.is from strong delaying positions. And west of the lake they drove to within 17 miles of ArGzzo on the road to Florence. In the air—heavy RAF bombers zoomed across the Alps to hit the Prahova oil refinery in Bucharest, Enemy accounts says that more i than 500 Italy based American I planes also struck at Budapest this I morning for the second time in 24 | nours. The German D-N-B news ngeney says the American daylight raiders swept over Hungary from the south in four waves.

A Pay's March Nearer - -, Victory and Home I walked off the troop ship that brought me home from France early in 1919 feeling ai though I'd been away for ycsrs. Actually, I was overseas for only eleven months. But some of the men serving in this war first put on their uniforms in 1940 and they're still in there fighting. The last time we heard from our oldest boy, Jim, he was over in England all set to go. Now he may be in France finishing the Job I started back ia 1918. And more than two hundred employees of The Connecticut Light and Power Company — the company I work for — arc in the armed forces serving in all parts of the world. Jim's letters and those from the fellows who worked with me tell the same story—more than anything in this world they want to win the war and come back ,home. That's what we all want — every one of us — and that's why my wife and I put every spare dollar we get into war bonds. Buying all thc~ war bonds we possibly can is the best way we know to help wia the war quickly. War bonds are more than an investment for our kids' future—the war bonds we buy today will bring Jim or some other American a day's march nearer victory and home.
