THE WISCONSIN STATE JOURNAL Wisconsin Thursday, October 22, 1942 Japs Repelled at Guadalcanal Nazis Say Captives Face 'Worse Fate' 3 Bombers Lost in Naziland Raid AFL, CIO Leaders Attend Chest Meeting Madison 'U .S. Troops Stop 'Feeler' Attack (Continued from Page 1 ) r.ew naval casualties, including the loss of two American destroyers. The big enemy counter-offensive for Guadalcanal has not started, but the Japanese invasion fleet remains menacingly in the northern Solomons. The emphasis remains on the fight for control of the air over Guadalcanal. Japanese and American airmen are exchanging daily blows over the vital airfield there. The navy disclosed Wednesday night that the United States lost two comparatively new destroyers the Meredith and O'Brien "within the last few days as a result of enemy action." It also announced that a Japanese cruiser and a destroyer were damaged by American bombers. The cruiser was "stopped by at least one bomb hit." V. S. Losses Now at 12 ' American ship" losses in the Solomons now stand at 12 warships - and auxiliaries sunk. Japanese losses are 10 sunk, three probably sunk, and 46 damaged. Damage to American ships has not been announced. It was not disclosed how the destroyers were sunk. The only action of American surface vessels reported in more than a week was on Saturday (Solomons time). Then U. S. surface vessels shelled enemy positions on the northwest coast cf Guadalcanal island, hitting ammunition dumps. Naval quarters warned that the loss of the American destroyers did not imply that the American fleet has begun extensive action. In fact, they said, American fliers are bearing about 90 per cent of the fighting burden there. The navy's communique Wednesday night mentioned for the f :rst time enemy warships south of Guadalcanal. It said merely, Small units (of the enemy fleet) have been located and attacked in the southern Solomons." It was believed that those attacks were made by aircraft. Contrary to persistent Axis reports of a big battle on Guadalcanal, the navy said "there has been little recent troop activity on Guadalcanal and our aircraft are continuing to bomb the enemy positions." No offensive land action has been reported since last Thursday when the last Japanese troop landing was made. j Japs Raided Again But there has been no lessening of air activity. For the fifth consecutive day American planes raided Japanese troop and supply concentrations on Guadalcanal in an effort to prevent the enemy from organizing for an expected assault. North of the Solomons, Gen, Douglas MacArthur's heavy bombers staged another shattering raid J on Rabaul, important Japanese j base on New Britain island from ! which the enemy has been supplying forces in the Solomon islands The air battles over Guadalcanal airfield continue with the enemy getting the worst of them. The first of the latest two raids reported Wednesday night came early Monday afternoon. Two Zero fiphters were shot aown. The Americans lost one Grumman Wildcat fighter. I The second attack, Tuesday morning, cost the Japanese two; bombers and seven Zero fighters. ! Two American fighters were lost.! The Japanese tried to "mousetrap" the defenders. They sent 30 Zero fighters over about an hour before the bombers arrived, apparently to draw up our fighter defense so the heavier craft could do their work unmolested. The navy's announcement did not say whether the ruse worked but naval officers here said that our airmen were "wise" to the trick. A Japanese seaplane also was destroyed on Monday. Japanese aircraft destroyed since the start of the Solomons" campaign last Aug. 7 now total 352. Casualties Unknown The Navy said its report of casualties in the sinking of the Meredith and O'Brien had not been received, "but it is believed that all of the personnel of the O'Biren and many of the personnel of the Meredith were rescued." Announcement of the sinkings before notification of the next of kin indicated a new policy by the navy department. Heretofore, . announcement of naval losses have been held up at least until the relatives of those lost were notified. The normal complement of each vessel is about 175 officers and men. The Meredith, a 1630-tonner, and the O'Brien, 1,570 tons both had an overall length of 341 feet and an exertme beam of 35 feet. The 'onnt-r was launched Oct 24, 1940, and was commanded by Comdr. Harry E. Hubbard, Baltimore, Md. The O'Brien was commissioned in March! 1940. and was skippered b Lieut. Comdr Thomas fiurrowes, Keyporl, N. J. Pefain Balks at Nazi Plan (Continued from lage 1) was said, government propagandists were thrown off a platform when they tried to speak. State railway workers, reports said, were taking a lead in opposing the attempted mobilization. A strike, starting at .the big Nation Warned of 'Oil Crisis' Senate Committee Seeks Solution (Continued from Page 1) price-raising or subsidy scheme to encourage exploration and increased production. The committee said its final report had not yet been formulated, but on the basis of evidence to date it made these recommendations: ONE: Passage of a bill, already introduced, to provide a royalty for new oil discoveries on the public domain. TWO: Financing by government agencies of exploratory drilling. THREE. Immediate steps to coordinate all government oil agencies. FOUR: In the absence of such complete coordination, an agreement between the OPC and the WPB to grant adequate priorities for materials for wells and pipe lines. " FIVE: Immediate utilization of "every known process" for making steel to provide materials for wells and lines. Army, Navy Rap Dry Proposal But Prohibitionist Indicates Hell Fight (Continued from Page 1.) ported that their correspondents seemed about equally divided, for and against the proposal. Administration leaders concede that Lee's amendment would pass if he musters enough supporters to guarantee a roll call vote on it. The amendment also would make prostitution a federal offense in the areas surrounding army or navy installations. Penalty for violation of any of the amendment's provisions would be a fine of $100 to $1,000, imprisonment of from 30 days to 12 months, or both. Two Other Issues Senatorial mail indicated strong public interest in two other proposals: That all students be deferred until the end of the school year, and that the army be required to give boys under 20 at least one year of training before sending them into combat. The senate bill provides that high school students called up during the second half of the current academic year may, if they ask, be deferred until the end of the school year. The measure passed by the house extends such optional deferment to college students. Sen. John Thomas (R Ida.) has introduced an amendment requiring 12 months' pre-combat training. Ranking members of the military affairs committee have predicted its defeat. When the house considered a similar proposal, Gen. George C. Marshall, . army chief of staff, opposed it on the ground that it would make it "almost impossible for the army to operate." State Treasurer Raps Dry Plan (Continued from Page 1) not less than $100 nor more .than $500 or imprisonment in the county jail or house of correction or both. "Under prohibition we will get more liquor than when its controlled, I'm positive of that, ' Smith said. Even if prohibition could be restricted to men in uniform, Smith would be against the proposal because soldiers are like other persons and shou d be given the same privileges, he said. "From time immemorial people have liked to have stimulants when they get together,'! Smith said. "Mine is coffee. . It's all a matter of degree. If you took my coffee away from me, I'd be just as mad as the man who las his drink taken away." He hastened to say that by his statement he did not mean that he condoned drunkenness. He believed drunks should be punished. "I know that soldiers who get drunk are given a stiff penalty," he said. Referring to Lee's proposal that prostitution be removed from areas near o imps Smith said. 'We've been working on prostitution. We've taken it out of the taverns. The state can say positively that there is no prostitution in our taverns today." Prostitution outside taverns is beyond the state s control, ae said. It is a matter of local enforcement. Oullins repair shops near Lyon rapidly spread to other railroad terminals and repair shops both in the unoccupied and the occupied zones. About 10,000 railroad men were on strike at the height of .this protest last weekend, it was reported. Persons arriving in Cuba from any foreign country must turn over to the authorities all foreign currency or U. j S. dollars in their possession above $250. 1 V (By United Press) Germany supported Japan's action in ordering severe punishment for captured enemy aviators today and Berlin Radio indicated that the Nazis would follow their partner's lead, which would mean a general Axis scrapping the Geneva convention on war prisoners. The Berlin Diplomatisch Polit-isch Korrespondenz said: "Anglo-American methods are well-known in Germany, too, and are contrary to international law. Statements by Harris and Eaker (Air Marshal Sir Arthur T. Harris, head of the RAF bomber command, and Maj. Gen. Ira C. EakeV, chief of the U. S. bomber command in the European theater) clearly reveal that responsihle persons in London and Washington not only approve but have given special orders against German women fend children. Charge Masa Murder "The Anfo-Saxon meth ds are shown also by the Lkokrae and mass murr tr " The Japanese Radio continued its insistence that it had punished American aviators claimed captured during the ra'd on Japanese cities last April. It named four , CLEVELAND (U.R) Japan's "1622 Lakehurst st., Cleveland" appears to be another figment of Tokyo's imagination. The Japanese radio had listed this as the address of a lieutenant in the U. S. army air fore shot down over Tokyo but neglected to name the flier. A careful check today failed to reveal any such street as "Lakehurst." Every street with a similar name Lake Front, Lake Shore, Lakeview, and Lake ave. also was checked with the address the Japanese radio gave, but no American airmen or their families were located. American pilots who. it c'aimed, had adm tted tney had bombed and machine gunned civilians, school children, and non-military objectives. The German Radio accused Britain of "tearing up the Geneva convention'' by attacking a field hospital in North Africa, which was "clearly marked with a red cross." Radio Berlin said the Nazis soon would "take more severe measures than in the past." German sources harked back to the British-German debate on manacling war prisoners and charged that Commandos not only shackled their prisoners, but shot them. ' . ' v ; The German Radio said Pres. Roosevelt had promised "persecution of German leaders" after the war and said the Allies planned to execute German soldiers, including the Storm and SS troops, and all officials in the occupied territories. The Japanese made no further threats against enemy prisoners, but said that Second Lieut. William Farrow, 23, Darlington, S. C, Second Lieut. Edward M. Holl-mark, 27, Dallas, Tex., Jacob Deshauzer, 29, Oregon, and Flight Mechanic Harold Spatz, 21, Kansas, admitted committing atrocities during the April raid. Four Airmen Missing , from Doolittle' s Raid WASHINGTON (U.R) Secy: of War Henry L. Stimson revealed today that four U. S. airmen were missing after the bombing raid on Japanese cities- led by Brig. Gen. James H. Doolittle April 18. The names given by Stimson corresponded to those broadcast by Radio Tokyo in a report that captured .participants in the raid were being punished for "inhumane" conduct. ' Stimson recalled announcement by the war department and Doolittle a month after the raid that no American planes were downed in Japan. He . added that he understood some of the planes encountered bad weather after leaving Japan and were forced off their course. Some, he said, may have been forced down in Japanese-controlled territory bylack of gasoline. Doolittle led 79 other airmen in the raid. The bomber crews, Stimson said, were instructed to attack only military objectives and subsequent reports, he continued, indicated they did so thoroughly. Stimson gave the following list of American fliers missing after the Tokyo raid, and their next of kin: Corp. Jacob D. Deshazer; Mrs. Hulda Andrus, mother, Madres, Ore. Sgt. Harold A. Spatz; Robert A. Spatz, father, Lebo, Kan. First Lieut. Dean E. Hallmark; Mrs. O. D. Hallmark, mother, Dallas, Tex. First Lieut. William Glover Farrow; Mrs. Jessie Farrow, mother. Washington, D. C.

NONE Americans Attack Submarine Base (Continued from Page 1) damage and minor casualties Wednesday night at an east coast town, while other planes dropped fire bombs in another coastal district. While the Fortresses smashed the Germans' principal base for submarine operations in the Atlantic, American single-engined mustang fighters and Britain's new Mosquito light bombers attacked Holland and northwestern Germany in daylight. The Mustangs, flown by RAF pilots in the U. S. army cooperation command, sjv a record by mak-ng a round trip of a least 600 miles to machine gun and s.t fire to military objectives along the Dortmund-Ems canal. At Lathen, in Hannover province, the Mustangs took the enemy by surprise and scored hits on a factory and a large gas tank. The flutters also skimmed tree tops to machine gun a military camp on 5Lc Dutch-German border, tl air ministry reported. Winging south along the canal, the Mustangs hit a iarge number of barge and. attacked the jock. gates. Here they met their first opposition, but it was ineffectual. On the return flight they set fire to one ship and caused an explosion in another in the Zuider Zee. . Allied air forces pounded German targets in northern Franca Wednesday afternoon in the area southeast of Boulogne.

Marshal Semyon Timoshenko's forces, driving through the first blizzard of winter on the desolate steppes northwest of Stalingrad, captured an important hill today and penetrated the second German defense line, battlefront dispatches said. Snow now was drifting northwest of Stalingrad, frontline dispatches said. Normally the blizzards that roar over the steppes, which are among the coldest areas In Russia, do not begin until late November. . The roads inside Stalingrad had been turned into bogs by days of continual rain. A bitter wind, whipping across the Volga, numbed the Germans whose attacks against an industrial sector in northwestern Stalingrad were becoming weaker. Red Star, the Soviet army newspaper, said the Germans wer nearing exhaustion at Stalingrad, and had only enough strength left to attack on narrow sectors one at a time. Nazis Fail in Caucasus Another 'Russian success was reported from the western Caucasus. There, after 10 days of hard fighting, the Russians had stopped 45,000 Germans trying to break through on a mountain road, and killed at least 4,000 of them. " Every attack the Germans delivered inside Stalingrad was beaten off with heavy losses. That Russians, seizing the initiative Wednesday, had swept the Germans from several houses near a vital factory in northwest Stalingrad. - More than 72 hours have passed without the Germans making a gain. This was the 59th day of tha siege of Stalingrad, which the Germans believed they would take six weeks ago. South of Stalingrad, front line dispatches said, the Russians had driven back the Germans two miles. Red Star reported that German tank attacks in the Mozdok area had greatly lessened, because -of severe losses, and the enemy now was using only light and medium tanks. The Russians were reported to have smashed an attack by 45 German tanks and 3,000 infantrymen in the Mozdok area. Soviet artillery picked off scores of automobiles carrying Hitler's warriors to the front. Hitler has been trying for more than two months to drive 40 or 50 miles to the Grozny oil fields. Deep snow covered the slopes of the Caucasus mountains above No-vorossisk, the former Soviet Black sea naval base, where. Russian forces weTe reported to have wrested two important hills from the Germans. Tanks Hampered The Russians mopped up tommy gunners the Germans had sent behind their lines. From Novoros-sisk, the Germans were trying to drive down the coast road and seize the last remaining Russian Black sea ports. They cruld not use tanks in the mojntains and intensified their air attacks, but front-line reports said they had not interfered with Russian supplies and reinforcements. The Soviet high command reported artillery duels at Voronezh, 350 miles northwest of Sta'ingrad, and oh the northwestern front. It also said that Soviet .warships in the Bla'Mc sea aad sunk three enemy auxiliary vessels and one transport totaling 13.000 tons.
