SEPTEMBER 6, i;M V I JC p AL i I J Pa( BA h GO er Ac 22 1937 dii he 29! Japanese Occupy Several Islands In Sunda Group By HAROLD GCARD SOMEWHERE IN AUSTRALIA, Sept. 5-(U.R Japan, seeking to strengthen Its position In the rone northwest of Australia, has occupied several Islands in the lesser Sunda group extending westward from Netherlands Portuguese Timor, it was revealed today. Japanese reports broadcast by Axis radios said enemy landing parties had been sent from Timor to take over the islands. Only Lomblen Island was mentioned specifically as having been occupied but it was indicated that other islands, in the group, such as Flores, Andonara, Solar, Pantar, Alor and possibly Wetar and Kam-bing farther east had probably been taken or would be. Previously Japan had occupied the Tanlmbar, Kai and Aroe groups between Timor and New Guinea. . News of the occupation explained the persistent reconnaissance of Allied planes over the northwestern! zone, reported each day witnout comment in Oen. Douglas MacAr-thur's communiques. Apparently the Japanese,- smarting under humiliating defeats in the Southern Solomons, where United States Marines had established offensive bases, and in the Milne Bay area of New Guinea, where Australians had smashed an Important invasion force, thought it wise to guard against a possible Allied attack from the northwest Australian zone. Though the new occupations brought the enemy no nearer to Australia, the Japanese hold on the eastern tip of The Netherlands East Indies was strengthened and there were new forces to back up the Japanese at Timor. MacArthur's communique today, after reporting the usual reconnaissance over the northwestern zone, reported that an- Allied medium bomber unit had attacked a Japa-. nese cruiser southeast of New Guinea with unknown results.

Rossi and his comrades, still wearing their dusty, battle-torn clothes, told of their victorious encounters in the past few days. "We're going back for another crack at Jerry and his pals," said one. The first German attack against the Americans came Just before sundown, said Sgt. Alfred Broer of Randolph; Nebraska. "We had been expecting them all dav and we had all our tanks J mostly General Grants in perfect condition but were under orders to hold fire until the big Mark threes and Mark fours were at close range,-" he went on. It was a thrilling slgnt," put in Sgt. Jerome Petano of Chicago, "to se that wave of tanks coming across the desert. Every gunner had his finger on the trigger and we' just waited for what seemed like hours while the enemy kept coming closer and closer. . Then finally our commander announced, very calmly, 'You may fire now'." 'Then, boy oh boy, did we fire!" Petano said. "We really gave them hell. Even though plenty of their shells bounced off our tanks not a one of our men was killed and very few were injured. After a short time during wmcn the air was filled with shells, and shrapnel, the Jerrys turned around and beat it." In the second battle, which start ed more or less by surprise at 2 o'clock in the morning, Lieut. Allen Anderson of Phoenix, Ariz., and his boys were credited with accounting for a number of German vehicles. Sgt. Clyde Goodnight of Houston, Texas, was in one tank crew credited with definitely knocking out three German tanks in- the first battle and one in the second. "We can't say for sure exactly how many each of our tanks got but we sure gave them plenty of trouble," said Corp. Harcy I. Walters of Butler, Pa. "At daylight after the first battle I know that I saw a number of wrecked German and Italian tanks directly in front of us. Most were German. We held bur fire so long that at times we were shooting at almost point blank range." Almost all of the Americans had their own individual impressions of the fighting but all were agreed on general points. Toughest of all, they said, was the waiting period while they had to hold their fire as the enemy tanks approached. "Believe me I sweat my head off during that period' but once the shooting started everything was great . because we were all too busy to think about anything except shooting those Jerrys up," said one tank-riding doughboy. All were high in their praise of British tank crews working along-, side them. CAIRO, Sept. 5 (Passed By U. S. Military Censor) (U.R) American tank crews who successfully battled Axis armored forces last Monday and Tuesday In the western desert held their fire for so long they feared the enemy had come "too close," Alford Broer, Randolph, Neb., commander of one of the crews hold the United Press today. But Broer's crew destroyed three enemy tanks. "We found American tank crews with this outfit saw plenty of action both Monday and Tuesday," Broer said. "We repelled an enemy attack the first day and counterattacked the following morning. "We waited all Monday for the German attack, which finally started at 5 p. m. We were ready for them and saw numerous enemy tanks advancing. "We waited for the order to fire. CAMPUS STYLED CLOTHES For Going Back to School Styles you young fellows demand.

The fighting raged for more than three and a -half hours and the engagement was broken off at 8:30 p. m. "All four American-manned General Grants were Intact. "We held the same spot throughout the battle, moving slightly to-obtain a better field of fire. My tank put three of theirs out of action. I saw flames pour out of two of them, while the crew of the third bailed out. "The fighting started up again at 8 a. m. Tuesday in another locality, but this time we attacked. They were ready for us and we met terrific fire. . It was an awful hot battle for a half hour, when the fighting , became less Intense. I really think we came off best. "My crew consisted of the driver, Howard Michels, Detroit, Mich., the 'radio operator, Norbert Puqniak, St. Louis Mo., the 75 (cannon) loader, William Rinn, Detroit, and two British gunners who replaced Americans recalled just before the battle. "This was our first battle, but we all were darned calm about it I expected to be excited, but wasn't. We took it real nice, I'd say. I "The British are swell fighters. ! "Though we must not underestimate the enemy, we can handle him any time. I think we gave them more than they gave us and our 'tanks are superior." . Rinn, the American who manned the cannon, said: "I didn't see much I was so busy loading the 75. "Early in the battle our aerial was shot off, while another hit was scored on our turret, but with surprisingly little effect." Rinn said he had not seen any excitement and wants to return to the front, but not as a cannon loader. Corporal Harry I. Walters, Butler, Pa., tank gunner said that "at 2:30 a. m. August 31 we heard Jerry coming." "I was In one tank with a V. S. crew," he said, "the remainder of the squadron was British. "We had been dug in at a position on a hill. We were hit several times as the battle swung back and forth through the day but by S p. m. we had one enemy tank opposing us which had been set afire and burned up while the crews of four other tanks bailed out when they were it. "I personally was In the fighting for three hours, steadily, from evening until dark when our squadron was ordered to withdraw. However, as our radio was damaged, we did not receive the order and stayed on all night, subject to artillery fire. However, we started back the next morning and rejoined our squadron. "On the way back in lorries we were subject to shelling and ma chine gunning from four Jerry tanks. We jumped out, dug trenches with our hands and stayed for two hours. Then the British tanks came up and engaged the enemy. The, British tank crews are tough babies all right. "What I look forward to mostly is a bath which is a luxury on the desert." Walters said his squadron at tacked and knocked out several en emy tankSi Society Of Friends Ends Conference WILMINGTON, O., Sept. 5 (Ff Ninty-three delegates representing 110,000 members of the Society of Friends in the United States ended a five-day conference on post-war reconstruction today with a pledge to seek wider diffusion of the bene fits of this country's productive economy to build a new world.

Phone 741 Bill Burnt, Mgr. ; Nazi Roundup Of Jews Is Cause Of 300 Suicides LONDON, Sept. 5 CJ.R Fighting French headquarters said today that a German roundup of Jews in French occupied territory in mid-July : had caused 300 suicides in Paris alone and : had resulted in some of the most terrible scenes of tht war. "Jewish women were oaten to threw; their babies . out of sixth floor windows and jump after them, . screaming wildly . . . Jews were dragged from their homes. Others were ejected from hospi tals . -. . Among patients thrown out of the Rothschild hospital was a cancer case, operated on 12 hours previously, also a Woman beside whose bed police stood while she gave birth to a child," -the Fight ing-French headquarters said in an official, statement. Detailed reports, including eye witness statements, received by secret channels were cited as authority for the statement. It was noted that French people were horrified and that they helped Jews and hindered police. (United Press reports from the French frontier had reported earlier this week that when Vichy, at the demand of the Germans, started a roundup of Jews in unoccupied territory so they could be deported to Eastern Europe, .French people resisted the police.)' Fighting French headquarters said 'the occupied zone roundup was started in earnest July 12, two days before -Bastille Day, the great republican holiday, and that by. Bas tille Day 28,000 men, women and children had been herded into the Princes Park and the Velodrome D'Hiver sports .center, The statement, angrily phrased, called the roundup a "Pogrom" and compared it In horror to the St. Bartholomew massacre of Protestants in France Aug. 24, 1572, when 50,000 ' Huguenots were massacred, though in this case the idea was not to kill but deport Jews, for slave labor for Germany. At the Rothschild hospital, the statement said, a Gestapo agent notorious for. his cruelty -at the Jewish concentration camp at Com-piegne ''personally directed the evacuation with a whip in his hand." . An eye-witness was quoted as saying: . ' ?'I was in a long queue outside a butcher's shop.. A girl about seven years old raced down the street, shouting: . ' - 'Please-give me food for mama. The police are taking he away.' Every woman in the queue gave the girl something' from her shopping bag. . - 'A few minutes later two police men came down the street dragging the mother. Several women clasped the girl, , - "Fear nothing madame, We will take care of your daughter. No thing will happen to her,' the women cried. "The police were revolted by their orders." - After the Papal envoy to Vichy, Msgr. Valerio Valerl, had made one of a number of protests to Marshal Henri Philippe Petain, it was said, the Vichy propaganda min ister issued an order to newspa pers: - 'On no- account should mention be made of the Vatican protest .to Marshal Petain in favor of the Jews of France." "French Catholics demonstrated in several ways that they were aware of the Vatican attitude," the Fighting French statement said. ' . " . ' It was charged that though the Germans had demanded of Laval 10,000 foreign Jews refuged in unoccupied France he had arrested "many times that: number" . and that at least 10,000 already had been deported to Germany. , . "United Press reports from unoccupied France, covering arrests up to 'Aug. 31, said Vichy was having the greatest difficulty rounding up foreign Jews, and that of 13.000 demanded by Germany before Aug. 26, about 6,000 in concentration camps were deported in cattle cars while police had been able to seize only about half of the remainder demanded.) , .

Anti-aircraft guns fired so fast no one could count the rounds. ,-Outnumbered Marine fighter planes took off in a roaring chal lenge. Planes from both sides but mostly Japanese crashed . in flames.

Two young men fired an antiaircraft gun with deadly intensity, From time to time the picture flashed back to them and they gavt one an odd sort of comfort, .firing' steadily and coolly.
