German military spokesmen declared emphatically that Russia's winter snows--the factor that spelled disaster for; Napoleon on his drive to Moscow in 1812-would mean no halt In the campaign. ·Germany is prepared "to the last detail" for cold weather combat, they said, and this seemed borne out by recent reports of nazi orders requisitioning winter blankets, heavy coats and boots in the Ger- ·)an conquered countries.

Groceries Delivered LONDON, Nov. !--(/?)--Forty-oi thousand torn of canned goof mostly from the United States, w be ready for -sale Nov. 17 under modified rationing plan, the foo ministry announced tonight. Justice Sworn in AUSTIN, NOV. 1-- f/n -- Ami friends in the mistere. chamber i the .supreme court of Texas, Pe Brewstcr of Temple, former pres dent of the Texas .state bar, toda wa. sworn In M a member of th tribunal's commission of ABILENE TROOPS AT BOWIE EXPECTING CALL TO CALIFORNIA, FOREIGN SERVICE BERLIN, Nov. 1--W)--The Gerlan government formally declared oday that the United States "at- acked Germany" in incidents in- nvolving the American destroyers treer and Kearny. The official statement was issued rom Adolf Hitler's headquarters to ounter President Roosevelt's as- ertion that Germany started the hooting. (The tri-power pact binds Japan o come to the aid of Germany in ase of "attack" on Germany by ny power not engaged in the Eu- opean war.) For the first time It was admitted that U was German submarines which had fired torpedoes at the Kearny, which the Navy department in Washington has announced was ripped open but not sunk with a loss of 11 lives and If) injured on the night of Oct. 16-17 southwest of Iceland. , (Previously German spokesmen lad sought to cast doubt on the iavy's announcement of the torpe- loing of the Kearny. indicating heir belief it. was a trumped up tory to boost the President's neu rality act revisions through con- ;ress. (The navy department's version Oct. 20 said the Kearny went to the id of another convoy which was inder attack and dropped deptn iombs. Three torpedoes were fired, he navy said, and the third struck he Kearny.l U-BOAT ATTACKED.FIRST The German- statement said T the Cearny was protecting one convoy when it received a call for help rom another which was engaged n battle with German naval forces. The Kearny then attacked i Gcr man U-boat witli depth charges, the tatement said, before the U-boats acted in their own defense. This report, the statement said, i r as based both on published state nents of the United States navy and eports of German U-boat comman ders. In the Greer incident, the- statement continued, the United States destroyer pursued for several hours n close military cooperation with English patrol forces," a German submarine and in the pursuit the submarine was attacked by several depth bombs while it was under.wa- er. "Only after this attack did the ierman U-boat use its weapons. The destroyer continued its pursuit with depth bombs a number of lours." The navy department's account said that the Greer. shot at by tor- icdoes but not hit on Oct. 4, was nfonned of the submarine's posi- :ion by a British plane which then dropped f o u r , d e p t h charges in the U-boat's vicinity and flew away. While the destroyer was following the submarine, the latter turned and [ircd its torpedoes). Another statement, also released from Hitler's headquarters, assailed as "forgeries of the clumsiest, grossest type" the map and document referred to by President Roosevelt in his navy day speech. , The statement made no mention of the U. S. destroyer Rueben James, a third U. S. destroyer which the Navy department has announced was sunk Oct. 31 with only 44 of its 120 officers and men so far reported saved. Abilene members , of Battery E, I3ist Field Artillery regiment of the 36th infantry division, home on-weekend passes, say they have been advised that the Second battalion of the regiment soon is to change stations. Battery E'l* part of the Second battalion which has been stationed at Camp Bowie since early in January, Reports brought home by various members of the battery are to tht effect that the battalion will entrain within the next 10 days for the West coast, probably San Francisco. The boys also are of the opinion that the battalion of about 550 officers and men will sail shortly thereafter for some foreign port, "?t«| Battery E was mobilized one year ago, along with other units of th« 36th. At that time it was commanded, by Capt. Thomas E. Williams, now a major. Present commander of the battery Is Capt, Thomas A. Dodson, a lieutenant at the time in Induction. 'We Art in.. .to the Finish-NATION'S REPLY GIVEN BY KNOX WASHINGTON, Nov. 1~-(P--German-American relations entered « phase of greater tension tonight with a charge from Adolf Hitler that American destroyers had engaged in aggression and a declaration from Secretary of the Navy Knox that 'we are in this fight to the finish." Knox's assertion was.made in an address to a marine corps audience Jap Situation More TOKYO,-Sunday, Nov. 2-- (/Pi-Germany's declaration that she had been "attacked" by the United States In the Atlantic is expected to Intensify the crisis In the Pacific ir-. view, of Japan's critical attitude towards Americans. Under terms of the Rome-Berin-Tokyo pact the signatories ars pledged to go to one another's aid in event of attack from a power not then engaged in the European war. Last December former Foreign Minister Yosuke Matsuka said it was discretionary with the axis partners to decide whether another was Jie object of aggression. The increasingly critical attitude of the Japanese press and official statements regarding the alleged ·encirclement" of Japan are indications that the Tokyo government is less likely now to take an impartial view should Germany ask her to Invoke the tri-partite agreement. Japan's suspicions of Washington's motives, therefore, become doubly significant and today's positive action by Germany may very well spread the war to both the Pacific and Atlantic, informed observers said. British Making New Ammunition LONDON, Nov. I--iVPi--Britain disclosed tonight that she was manufacturing a "new and highly secret" ammunition for the battle of the Atlantic, '.he formula for which presumably has been passed on to the United States as arc other British military secrets. Disclosure that the new ammunition is being used by some British warships on convoy escort duty was made in a ministry of supply announcement telling a commonplace story of 20 Welsh factory hands who worked through the night to get out a rush order of the new s t u f f for a truck load. Eagle Squadron's Tops for Results LONDON. Nov. 1--(/PI--The American Eagle -squadron shot down more German airplanes in October than any other RAP fighter squadron, the air ministry news service stated tonight. These American volunteer pilots destroyed nine of the 81 German planes credited to the.fighter command for I he 1 inonlh, n slalrmrm said. Pilot Officer O. W. McCoplln 26, of Buffalo, N. Y., accounted for five of the nine German machines destroyed by the Eajtlw In October bringing his total to tin. at Quantico,, Va., while nil subordinates at the Navy department hopefully awaited word from the North Atlantic increasing the list of known survivors of the torpedoed destroyed Reuben James. Forty-four enlisted men had been rescued out of the personnel roster of about 120. The fact that these survivors were safe, and that the destroyer had been torpedoed and sunk while on convoy duty Was all the information which the department had. HOPE FOR RESCUES Some hopefully assumed that ships of the convoy had effected rescues which they had not yet reported, and would not report until they made port. The practice has been to use the radio as little as possible, lest the ship's position be divulged to lurking submarines. Official comment on the extraordinary statement issued from Hitler's headquarters in Russia was limited to the remark by a State department spokesman, in response to questions, that German propaganda seemed to be trying to deny the right of self-defense to those countries in danger of attack. This official referred reporters to President Roosevelt's address of last Monday for a statement of this country's attitude as to who was the aggressor in clashes in the North Atlantic between American destroyers and nazi war craft. In that address,-Roosevelt said: "We have wished to avoid shooting. But the shooting has started. And history has recorded who fired the first shot. In the long run, however, all that will matter is who fired the last shot." Mackenzie King, Roosevelt Confer HYDE PARK. N. Y., Nov. 1--//Pi-Behind the stone and stucco walls of a Hudson Valley mansion. President Roosevelt and Prime Minister W. L. Mackenzie King of Canada discussed today the mutual problems of neighbor nations whose parallel national policies are dedicated to the defeat of nazism.
