177 POSTED MISSING CANADIANS ARRIVE TOURIST GUIDE TO TOMMY Story Expected Today On St. Hubert Mystery Quebeckers with Bofors Outfit Take German Strongpoint inSicily By ROSS MUNRO (Canadian Press War Correspondent.) mum; gasmata hard hitin raids Heaviest Bombings of Southwest Pacific War Delivered by Allies 5 1 -y iv MC4 presses the pedal with his foot The rapid improvisation worked well and the target was demolished. Then the French Canadians gave the gunners another target and Evoy, Hugh and Gnr. Zane Gergley of Regina went to work on it. This target was a stone house harboring more Nazi machine-gunners about 1,000 yards off.

The Bofors men fired a ranging shot over the house and put the next one through the door. Then Evoy sent six shells smack on the house. More than a dozen Germans piled out and were shot down by French-Canadian Bren gunners. Later another Bofors gun crew in a weird action fired at machine-gun posts over a hill out of sight. The gunners call this indirect fire and generally it is the role of 25-pounder field guns.

French-Canadian infantry had pcitned out the target to the Bofors men and Capt. Robinson went forward to the hill top to act as observation officer. The target was 1,500 yards off. Robinson signalled Sgt. Harrison Fannan, of Kelvington, commanding the gun.

to open fire. Bofors shells lobbed over the hill scored direct hits. In all these actions the Canadians were firing tracer shells. Working on the gun with Sgt Fannan were Bdr. Charles Bas-singthwaite of Yorkton, Gnr.

Canadians have taken on tanks, pillboxes and strong points with their Bofors but this is the first time I ever heard of indirect shooting with this weapon.

Intemallaul 1 OolonlmL With the Canadian Gunners in Central Sicily, July 21 (Delayed) (CP. Cable) Canadian anti-ah craft gunners have been in action against German machinegun posts here with Bofors guns in some of the most surprising engagements in this campaign. Moving up with the advancing Canadian infantry and tanks are ack ack Bofors regiments who set upthe guns with the bell-shaped muzzles on high ground and wait for an air attack. There haven't been any that I have seen, so the gunners have been experimenting with knocking out enemy machine-gun posts which they try to hold up the infantry. On a hillside in North Valguar-nera yesterday (July 20) afternoon Canadian Bofors gunners told me eye-opening stories of their action! around that town as the Canadian force swept down on it two days ago.

One troop commanded by Capt. Norval Robinson of Kingston, Ont, in a battery led by Maj. J. R. Pep-all of Toronto, were moving down the road to Valguarnera at night with the motorized infantry.

They kept passing trucks, and without realizing it got out among the forward elements. About 1 a.m., they were ma-chined-gunned and shelled by mor tars on the road, and the gun crews jumped from the trucks to nearby ditches where they remained until dawn. "We moved a little farther along and got our Bofors gun set up just after daylight when the Germans peppered us with machine-guns, and that made us pretty mad," said Sgt. M. (Chip) Evoy of Carlton Place, who was commanding the unit which went into the anti-machine-gun post action first.

"A French Canadian infantry outfit was with us, and an officer gave us the targets to try for. Ducking bullets we took on one target 1,500 yards away on a hill. It was a German strongpoint where flashes were showing as machine-guns went into action." Evoy said that "we lowered the barrel of our ack-ack Bofors like an anti-tank gun and let go. With a couple of shots we stopped the firing from the post." He had only Bdr. Jim Hugh of Yorkton, with him for this shooting and the sergeant had to push the firing pedal with his hand to get his shots away.

Even as the body needs food in the summer as well as in the winter even so our spirits need to be fed during the vacation months as well as during the rest of the year. One of the curses of present day Pro testantism is that when summer comes we are all too prone to close the activities and services of the church.

Shut the door and keep it locked until cool weather comes again. This is as detrimental as to close the- food stores and not eat from June 1 until Labor Day. For we need spiritual food as much as we need material food. "Let us not fail." the minister continued, "to keep alive and aglow our devotion and worship of God during the summer months.

We are weary and tired of the routine of every day life and it is good to have, for a little while, at least the opportunity to relax from the burdens and cares that beset us. Indeed, we are not fair to our family, our associates, or to ourselves, if we do not use whatever opportunities are ours to refresh ourselves recreation-ally.

I am quite sure that the Italian people are harpy with the change, even though many of them feel that the King himself was largely responsible for the advent of Fascism.

Dr. Fossati feels that the Allies will soon be using Italy as a base against Germany.

They will prob- aDiy set up a military government as they have done in Sicily, he said. The Italo-Canadian Order, an organization which has done much charitable war-work including the conation of ambulances to wartorn London, issued a declaration last night through' one of its trustees, A. Spada. The declaration read in part as follows: "In 1939 the Italo-Canadian Order sent a telegram to King Vic tor Emmanuel of Italy, urging him rot to declare war against the United Nations. The telegram was received and acknowledged by the King The Italo-Canadian Order as deeply sorry that the criminal policy of Fascism has brought destruction to so many countries in cluding the Italian Homeland.

Un cer the Italian constiution, the King of Italy has power to declare war or to make peace. We hope that ihe King of Italy will avail himself of tins power to end within eight cays the war with the United Na tions. We hope that peace and or der will be maintained in Italy and that to the horrors of war will not be added the more tragic hor rors of civil war. The Italian Navy should, as representative of the Italian Nation, fight on the side of the United Nations to destroy Japan in the Pacific, in order to restore peace and freedom all over the world." The opinions of local Italian anti Fascists had already been voiced at a meeting in the Queen Hotel last Saturday night. At that time.

CoL Randolfo Pacciardi. addressing the meeting, said. "The United Kingdom and the United States have fought Fascism for two or three years; but we have fought it for 20 years. Our hostility for Fascism merits the right of our creating an Italian Legion. Such a force would be welcomed in Lipari where men of our race, antifascists like ourselves, are imprisoned in vilest conditions.

Rev. D. Gualtlert, pastor of the Italian United Church here, said last night, "This is a step toward freedom of the Italian people. But there are other institutions allied with Fascism that helped to bring Italy irto its present condition. These must go, too.

We want an Italy governed by democratic ideas those, for example, of Mazzini and GarabaldL We regard our Canadian troops in Sicily not as invaders, but as coworkers with the Italian population in the final establishment of democracy in Italy."

Head-Aches Quickly Relieved with ttCAOACHEPOWOERS UV1FJI 1-3 Possibility that the St Hubert skeleton mystery was solved or very close to solution was seen in a persistent but unofficial report yesterday that an "important announcement" in connection with the strange case would be made some time today by Provincial De tective Chief Louis Jargaille. Neither Chief Jargaille nor any of his men working on the case would admit any new developments up to late last night. Despite the stubborn secrecy which has enshrouded the mystery for the past few days, usually well-informed sources not connected with the investigation hinted yesterday that the case was "in the bag." and that announcement to this effect would be made officially some time today.

Bavitch had admitted that there was some "padding" in the lists. A week ago he ordered the reenumeration of Polls Nos. 40 and 94. He denied responsibility for the "padding.

July 25. GO Prime Minister Mackenzie King said tonight the resignation of Premier Mussolini cf Italy, announced by the Rome radio, "appears to be the beginning of the end of the Fascist regime." Mr.

King said it is too early to say what effect Mussolini's resignation will have on Italy's with drawal from the war but he add ed: "It is certainly a step in the right direction." News bulletins announcing the resignation of Mussolini, the as sumption of command of Italy's military forces by King Victor Emmanuel, and the appointment of Marshal Pietro Badoglio as prime minister were relayed immediately to Mr. King by The Canadian Press. The prime minister issued the following statement: "This is welcome news. It appears to be the beginning of the end of the Fascist regime. "It is too soon to say what effect Mussolini's dismissal will have on Italy's withdrawal from the war, but it is certainly a step in the right direction."

Since at the same time he also has the high rank in the SS. it will be declared that Neurath is the man to lead the SS. over into the post-war period." LARGE ARMY Germans here, who follow events in the Reich with minute care and patience, estimate that the SS.

army has now grown to at least 500,000 men. Neurath was one of the few Republican diplomats and government, officials of high rank who were carried over into the Nazi regime. Franz von Papen, the Nazi "fixer" and present ambassador to Turkey, is another. Neurath, who is 70, has wide connections in diplomatic circles throughout Europe. After serving in various posts for imperial Germany, and later the republic, including terms at Istanbul, Copenhagen and Rome, he became ambassador to Great Britain in 1930 and continued in that position for two years.

Called back to Germany, he became Minister of Foreign Affairs and continued in -that post under Hitler until he was replaced by Joachim" von Ribbentrop in 1938. Neurath was one of the first non-Nazi ministers of Germany to accept membership in the party after Hitler's assumption of power in 1933 and he rewarded by Himmler with the rank of brigade leader in the S.S. His action was instrumental in bringing other recalcitrant Republicans into the government. Some of the other promotions announced with Neurath's indicated interesting trends. Most of them were understandable to anyone who has followed the Nazi pattern for getting ahead in the world, but the advance of Brigade Leader Julius Schub to Obergruppenfuehrer puzzled some Germans until they heard the German radio announce that the promotions had united all classes of Germans in the party.

Schaub is Hitler's chauffeur. Handy with his fists and a gun, he was active in the early brawls of the Nazi party and was rewarded with the job of protecting the Fuehrer's life. Hitler rarely appears in public without him. The naming of 18 new "generals" at one time raised the number of active Obergruppenfuehrers to about 50, an unusually high number when the relative sizes of the regular army and the SS. are compared.

MENZIES DISAVOWS FADDEN TAX PLAN Dispute May Spell End of Effort to Oust Curtin's Labor Government Sydney, July 25. (CP Cable) Australia's general election campaign took a startling new turn during the weekend when R. G. Men-zies, a United Australia Party leader, in a speech at Melbourne, repudiated a tax refund proposal advocated by Arthur Fadden, Country Party leader. This dispute between two of the outstanding figures in the Opposition ranks both former prime ministers apparently meant an end to the joint efforts by the United Australia and Country Parties to oust the Labor Government of Prime Minister Curtin.

Voting takes place August 21. Fadden, now camapigning in Queensland, described Menzies' repudiation of the Country Party leader's tax refund proposal as "a stab in the back." In Canberra Curtin declared "this fundamental dispute on policy between Mr. Fadden and Mr. Menzies shows the hollowness of the Opposition's demand for an all-party national government Fadden made his proposal last week. He promised that part of the income tax, totalling altogether one-third of the whole yield, would be regarded as a compulsory loan, in the same way as part of Canada's income tax and part of Britain's, now is treated.

Fadden said after the war this sum would be repaid in cash to the taxpayers. He said refunds would vary from three-quarters of the income tax paid by those with lower incomes to five per cent, of the tax paid by those in the higher London.

At the same time, these sources say.

the Nazi parry armv (Schutz- staffel, or Elite Guard, known as bis.) is being expanded to impressive strength to cope with any internal difficulties growing out of the increasing Allied pressure on the "European Fortress." It is obvious that Heinrich Him-mler, head of all German police organizations, is making prepara tions for every conceivable develop ment within Germany, even to civil war. The ultimate goal of this ac tivity is to make certain if possible mat tne JNazi party, its army, its ideas and objectives survive in some form in the Germany of tomorrow. The recent promotion of Neurath to the rank of "ObergniDnen- fuehrer" or general in the SS. was accepted by many Germans here as evidence that Neurath is being prepared for presentation as a representative of a conservative faction with which Allied governments might deal, although Allied leaders have repeatedly emphasized there would be no dealing with anyone bearing the Nazi taint, however faint Neurath was promoted to nartv general rank along with 17 other diligent Nazi leaders.

Tunisia had fallen only a few weeks before, bringing with it a profound sobering effect. Die Zeitung. a German-language weekly published in London, pointed out recently that Neurath still retains his position as president of the secret cabinet council a position awarded him when he was removed as foreign minister and noted that at the time of his recent promotion German propagandists had referred obliquely to "tasks which might await him" in case Hitler, in a moment of crisis, should be forced to devote all his attention to military matters.
