Sept. 13 (A. P.) Gen. John J. Pershing urged today, on his 79th birthday, that Congress provide funds at its coming special session "to carry the military establishment to its full peace strength." Full strength would be 280,000 men in the Regular Army and 424,000 in the National Guard. Since the war broke out in Europe, President Roosevelt has already ordered expansion of the army to 227,000 and the Guard to 235,000. Bad Situation 22 Years Ago. The A. E. F. commander-in-chief said in a birthday statement to the press: . "I must again recall our deplorable situation when we entered the World War 22 years ago. Then not a single move had been made, from a military point of view, to prepare for it. That experience, with its costly lesson, I am happy to say, appears certain to be avoided in the event that we should again become involved in war." The General issued his statement from Walter Reed Hospital, where he is undergoing a periodic physical checkup and watching Europe's new war from his bed and easy chair. "It is not a very good time to be celebrating birthdays when everybody is disturbed about the unfortunate situation of the world today," he said.. "The recent' action of President Roosevelt in authorizing an immediate increase in the strength of the army and navy has my hearty support. ... I sincerely hope that if a special session of Congress is called the War Department will be at once authorized, and provided with the necessary funds, to carry the military establishment to its full peace strength. . . ." He also welcomed increases in the National Guard, and advocated generous appropriations for war maneuvers to train both the Regular Army and the guard. Plenty of Reserve Officers "It is reassuring," he added, "to know that there is available a large group of trained reserve officers. ... . So we are not facing the neces sity of having to improvise an officer personnel of our citizen-soldiers." Praising the army's general staff, he said. "I take pride in the fact that I organized it on the basis of my experience in the World War." In that war 21 years ago. on his 58th birthday. Gen. Pershing was directing the first operation by a complete and independent American army in Europe, the St. Mihiel offensive. - . It succeeded in clearing a salient that Germany had held almost without change xor four years, and opened the way to Sedan, which the Americans later pierced to help force an armistice. Now, all the best-known commanders of that day. Allied and German, are gone except for Pershing. Though near death a year and a half ago, he apparently has recovered fully and is "getting along very nicely," reported Col. George E. Adamson. his aid.

Neutrality law revision will be asked. While the heroic and sentimental defense of Warsaw by the embattled Poles was the focal point of world interest, a German Army reaching out to establish a common frontier with the Soviet and open a gateway to Rumania loomed as the greatest threat to Poland. Capture of Lwow was the objective. The strategic industrial center ishe gateway through which Poles and Germans seek supplies. Nazis claimed to be on the outskirts of Lwow today. . . - Horror of war reached lowest depth with notice from Adolf Hitler to the Poles that he would begin firing on civilian population, in retaliation for sniping. Blame for the move was placed by Hitler on "reckless army, leaders" of Poland, whom he charged with encouraging the sniping campaign. Lord Halifax, British Foreign Secretary, replying to Hitler, warned Germany that if Nazis resort to civilian bombings the British Government "must .hold themselves completely free to take such action as they may deem appropriate." United States Ambassador Biddle reported from : "Somewhere in Poland" exact location of the temporary Embassy not revealed German bombings of a defenseless open village, killing of women, children, Girl Scouts, bombings of a Red.Cross train, refugee train.: "Population terrorized," he told President Roosevelt.. i , ; . 1 "A suicide corps" of German -parachutists, in Polish unforms or garbed as Polish peasants, was reported landing behind Polish lines. Warsaw charged that the corps carried instructions to pro-Nazi minorities in Poland and were aiding invaders secretly as did "The Fifth Column" in 'Spain.1" : x ,; The German supreme army command claimed to have recaptured Birnberg (Birn Hill), four miles southeast of ; Saarbruecken on the . western front, , where French had a , foothold yesterday. A heavy French-German artillery duel in the Saar land opened the day's hostilities, but there was still no major ' offensive in progress, and; opposing forces were "testing" strength of the two walls. British troops were officially reported in French .military dispatches as having gone into action on the western front. In London Prime Minister Chamberlain announced formation of a Ministry of Shipping in progress. A Greek steamer struck a mine off Falsterbo, Sweden. . Premiers of Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark set. Sept. 18 for a meeting to discuss measures to be employed ' in the event of unrestrictedj submarine warfare threatening northern trade. ; : - , ' Leader of the Socialist party in the United States, Norman Thomas, predicted' President Roosevelt's proposed revision of the Neutrality act would probably draw the United States into the war. "The bill puts us into economic war on one side. We shall lose a large percentage of our freedom to choose war or peace. A desperate enemy may, decide for us to turn economic war into real war by attack- ing our trade," Thomas said. ' ; r British cartoonists were standardizing their conceptions of the enemy after the manner of the first World War. Pen and ink propagandists were picturing Hitler as a gorilla, Goebbels as a snake, Goering as a pig. On the Allied side Britain is a snarling lion, France the heroic Marianne sending troops to war; Poland, screaming eagles. II Duce Mussolini ordering preparation for a World's Fair in Rome in 1942 to proceed despite war, recalled his April International Exposition plans and statement then that Italy did not expect to be involved in war for at least three years. Prime Minister Chamberlain, reporting to Parliament on his flight to France, pledged war until "the menace of Hitlerism has been finally removed"; said German invasion of Poland had been frustrated; told of a successful, methodical advance by French into the Saar; admitted merchant fleet losses at sea, but implied that German U-boats were being sunk. Public opinion in Britain and France was "in accord," said Chamberlain. . British women will eventually; take over: a large . percentage of semiskilled work, in munitions plants, , Leslie Burgin, British Minister of Supply, predicted. "Unlimited recruiting" for the United States Coast Guard was announced in Boston. A recruiting depot opened at 37 Marginal st., Chelsea, to await applicants between 18 and 25. - ...... Germany drafted for home defense men from 41 to 55, London stated, adding veterans were complaining at being called up before younger men. " . ' - The British Information Ministry permitted publica-. tion of a Rotterdam report that the $20,000,000 Bremen had . acquired status' Italian vessel and was headed for . an -an Italian port- The A. P. ; had no confirmation. The Bremen has been unreported since Aug. 30. Germany had insisted she was safe in a neutral port. , The Duke of Windsor is to take up a war appointment. The City of Flint with Canadian and American survivors of the Athenia arrived at Halifax with tales of a torpedoing by a submarine. " " ; Mussolini raised the pay of Regular Army and black-shirt militia from two cents to five cents a day. What price glory? 3,000,000 Jews in Poland Flee for Double .Reason BUDAPEST. Sept 13 (A. P.) To more than 3,000,000 Jews in Poland war has come as a new fear that goes beyond the danger of loss of homes and property and the normal sisks of war. 1 They flee not only the German army but the anU-Semitie policies they believe wiU come with any German occupation. Today they -were crowding into the entire area cf southeastern Poland but their way was difficult if iot impossible. The Rumanian border was blocked to them and the Soviet frontiers also apparently were closed. Among the refugees Jews were prominent, from well-dressed business men to black-gowned orthodox Jews with skull caps and side curls. The German drive has struck into areas which long were regarded as DIARY the stronghold of Eastern European Jewry villages and schools where customs have not changed for centuries. Among the buildings abandoned were schools for rabbis where life and instruction had no modern note.". Among the Jews who fled such cities as Krakow and Katowice were thousands who escaped from Germany during the last 'year. Homeless to begin with, the new flight was only a continuation. . Meanwhile, Jews were fighting In Polish uniforms in an effort to stem the German drive. Thousands ot Jews were among the reserve officers called up. Everywhere the Polish Jews, constituting Poland's second largest minority,, were directly involved in th uar 1 - ,. , , , , Fire Winthrop Selectmen From RR. Committee WINTHROP.
